“You’ve rejected Jesus…and you know it!”

A Very Serious Message To Catholics…

If you failed to do what Jesus taught in His one and only Church (the Catholic Church), via his beloved Pope, St. Pius X, to avoid Modernism, then without a doubt, you have rejected your Jesus.

Pope St. Pius X said, as clear as he could in his encyclical Pascendi, “Can anybody…be surprised that we should define it (Modernism) as the synthesis of all heresies?”  He identified Modernism as the MOST DANGEROUS threat to the Catholic Church.  Modernists are in the Catholic laity, and, much more sad, in the ranks of the priesthood itself.

In almost 100 years since his encyclical, nothing has changed. In fact it’s gotten worse, not only in the laity, but amongst the bishops, cardinals, and yes, even the popes---especially the Vatican II antipopes.

The following is a partial list of identifying marks of Modernism, all taken directly from the sainted Pope’s encyclical.

. “Degrade [the Person of the Divine Redeemer] to the condition of a single and ordinary man”.
. “Put into operation their designs for her [the Church’s] undoing, not from without but from within.”
.“Proceed to diffuse poison through the whole tree, so that there is no part of Catholic truth which they leave untouched.”
.“Present their doctrines without order and systematic arrangement, in a scattered and  disjointed  manner.”
.“Embrace and devise novelties even of the most absurd kind.”
. “[Infer] that God can never be the direct object of science.”

. “Both science and history must be atheistic.”
. “Religion is a form of life, [and] the explanation must certainly be found in the life of man.”
. “In the person of Christ…science and history encounter nothing that is human.”
. “Dogmas…stand midway between the believer and his faith, and are usually called symbols.”
. “It is quite impossible to maintain that Dogmas absolutely contain truth.”
. “Dogmas must be, therefore, liable to change.”
.“Dogmas are not only able, but ought to evolve and be changed.”
. “…Every religion, even paganism, must be held to be true.”
. “All existing religions are equally true, for otherwise they would not survive.”
. “The state must be separated from the church. Every Catholic has the right and duty to work for the common good in a way he thinks best, without troubling himself about the authority of the Church.”
. “The Church and the sacraments…are not to be regarded as founded by Christ as the intermediary.”

These are just a few of the heresies on Modernism outlined in Pope St. Pius X’s encyclicals.

Have you not witnessed these heresies---and many, many more?  If Not, then visit St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church in Winter Park, Florida. There you’ll see the headless covering of women receiving “Holy Communion” in the hand administered by women beneath a Cross that excludes the Crucified Body of Jesus and replaced by a Resurrected Jesus.  You’ll see the tabernacle off to the side (in the past it was hidden in the Chapel completely removed from the Church), altars and Communion rails removed along with the removal of many statues of Saints---including the protector of the Catholic Church---St. Michael.  In the Chapel there once hung a Crucifix of Jesus so obnoxious (Jesus’ Body hung twisted and in green color) that public outrage demanded its removal.  Look further, and you’ll see pictures of antipope John Paul II wearing a broken cross, the broken cross that represents the BEAST spoken of in the book of Apocalypse.  These are the results of MODERNISM!

Modernism first became prevalent in the early 20th Century, and Pope Pius X immediately brought the world’s attention to it, condemning it with two encyclicals, (On the Doctrine of Modernism in 1907) and (The Oath Against Modernism in 1910). Today Modernism is very much alive in the Catholic Church. What’s the main culprit? Lukewarm Catholics that refuse to object and speak out.  Pope St. Pius V said: “All the evils of the world are due to lukewarm Catholics.” And St. Catherine of Siena said: “We’ve had enough of exhortations to be silent! Cry out with a hundred thousand tongues. I see that the world is rotten because of silence.”

Any Catholic that should dare to approve of Modernism or participate in it---cannot call themselves Catholic!

The most certain way to abstain from rejecting your Jesus and to rightfully call yourself a Catholic…is to avoid Modernism by staying away from Novus Ordo Masses; daily pray the Rosary; and wear the Brown Scapular.

“Is The Mass You Attend A Counterfeit Mass?”

An Important Message to Catholics...

If you’re attending the Novus Ordo Mass (New Mass) it will bring you to salvation…RIGHT?

Well, ponder this!  Even among those who call themselves Catholic and attend the New Mass, they cannot be saved through the counterfeit Novus Ordo Mass that’s patterned after heretical Protestant religions; egregiously “confects” only bread in the Host instead of the Body and Blood of Jesus; and is raptly involved in many other acts of heresy.

Moreover, the New Mass is not sanctioned by God as His one and only true Mass. In fact, it’s a sacrilege by which God is offended, because, it’s a deliberate counterfeit of the Mass of the Roman Rite that Jesus himself established.

Here’s something else to ponder. Very few are saved and most people in the world, including most Catholics, are damned.  Does this shock you?  If it does, see what Our Lord Jesus had to say: “…the road to Heaven is straight and narrow and FEW find it, while the road to Hell is wide and taken by MOST.  (Matthew 7:13)

It’s a sad fact that most people are of bad will and don’t want to hear the truth. That’s why most people are on the road to perdition. The truth is that those who truly believe in God and accept the true Catholic Church and the Traditional Mass, will make no compromise with His True Church or His True Mass…they will avoid any and all counterfeit Churches and corrupted Masses including---what some are deceived into believing as being Catholic—The Old Catholics.  Here’s what Catholic Doctrine and Pope Pius IX had to say about The Old Catholics…

“…the new heretics who call themselves ‘Old Catholics’…these schismatics and heretics…their wicked sect…these sons of darkness…their wicked faction…this deplorable sect…This sect overthrows the foundations of the Catholic religion, shamelessly rejects the dogmatic definitions of the Ecumenical Vatican Council, and devotes itself to the ruin of souls in so many ways. We have decreed and declared in Our letter of 21 November 1873 that those unfortunate men who belong to, adhere to, and support that sect should be considered as schismatics and separated from communion with the Church.”  March 23, 1875, on the “Old Catholics” who reject Vatican I’s definition of Papal Infallibility.

Because of the heresies they committed, Pope Pius IX was compelled to excommunicate them. For those unfamiliar with the Old Catholic religion, the following will show some of the reasons for their excommunication:

Papal infallibility defined by the infallible Vatican I Council is rejected.
Clerical celibacy is rejected.  Married men are permitted to be ordained as priests. Women are ordained priests.  Divorced Old Catholics are permitted to remarry. All persons, including non-Catholics, can receive Holy Communion. Confessions to priests are not required and subsequently not officiated. The Mass is said in the vernacular thus eliminating the unerring Latin Mass.

In essence, these Old Catholics simply refused to abide by what the Church has always taught through Holy Ghost inspiration. Under such circumstances, there was no other choice for this true Pope but to follow infallible Church Doctrine and issue an excommunication.

Jesus clues us in on how to reach salvation. He gives us the solution: “My yoke is sweet and my burden is light” (Matthew 11:30). It’s not difficult for any of us, including the Old Catholics, if only they would abide by God’s commandments. The reason so few make it to Heaven is not because it’s hard, but because of the refusal to believe and follow the simple easy things He commands, e.g. attending Mass and receiving the true Presence of His Body and Blood in Communion.  Is attending His True Mass and receiving, undefiled, His Body and Blood at Holy Communion not a sweet yoke and a light burden?

But the sad truth is that most people are of bad will. That’s why the Saints and Doctors of the Church have consistently taught that only a few souls are saved. For the doubters and unbelievers and those influenced by Protestant belief that “all go to Heaven” (the belief of most Protestant sects)---check out what the Saints say concerning salvation…

Saint Leonard of Port Maurice (A. D. 1676-1751), on the fewness of the saved: “The most common sentiment which is held is that, among Christians [Catholics], there are more damned souls than predestined souls.” This is the sentiment of St. Theodore, St.Ephrem, St John Chrysostom, St Basil, and many other Saints.

Saint Jerome said: “Out of one hundred thousand people whose lives have always been bad, you will find barely one who is worthy of indulgence.”

Saint Anselm said:  “If thou wouldst be certain of being in the number of the elect, strive to be one of the few, not the many.  And if thou wouldst be quite sure of thy salvation, strive to be among the fewest of the few…Do not follow the great majority of mankind, but follow those who enter upon the narrow way, who renounce the world, who give themselves to prayer, and who never relax their efforts by day or by night, that they may attain everlasting blessedness.”

In our Blog: “Wow…How Does This Grab You”, we tell of the vision of the Archdeacon of Lyons who died the same day as St Bernard (1153).  He said:   “Know, Monsignor, that at the very hour I passed away, thirty-three thousand people also died.  Out of this number, Bernard and myself went up to heaven without delay, three went to purgatory, and all the rest fell into Hell.” (Told to St. Vincent Ferrar)

So, what’s the answer?  It’s quite simply…stay out of counterfeit churches; receive the True Presence of the Body and Blood of Jesus at Traditional Catholic Masses and Eastern Rite Masses and pray, pray, pray—especially the Rosary.

To attend a true Mass in the Tampa Bay area and receive Holy Communion that’s properly confected, visit Father Fattore at the Immaculate Heart of Mary Chapel, 2404 Stuart St., Tampa, Florida. Masses are said in Latin with sermons in English and Spanish---depending upon the Mass schedule. The Mass is easily followed in English or Spanish with provided Missals.  

For other Traditional Churches through out the United States and Canada, consult the “Directory of Latin Masses & Resource Book” obtainable on line.

“What! …She’s a Saint?”

Let’s hear what St. Francis de Sales had to say.

St. Francis de Sales, a Doctor of the Church, upon hearing confession of a woman who led a very bad life, but who, touched by God’s grace, made a good and sincere confession of all the evil she had done, had her sins absolved by St Francis. When she received the absolution she said to St Francis:  “Father, what do you think of me now since you have heard of all the crimes I’ve been guilty of?” “My child,” he answered, “I now look upon you as a SAINT, let people say and think what they like, they may judge you as the Pharisee’s judged Mary Magdalen after her conversion, but you know what Jesus Christ thought of her and how he judged her. “Your past life now has no longer any existence.”

Confession of mortal sins is essential for salvation. But it doesn’t stop there. There must be contrition, resolution not to sin again, and penance.

For a confession to be a valid confession, it must be made to a Catholic priest ordained or conditionally ordained in the Traditional Catholic Church, a priest in the Eastern Rite Catholic Church or a Novus Ordo “Catholic” priest ordained prior to June 30,1968. Why this date and only these priests?  Simply because The New Rite of Ordaining Priests and the Rite of Consecration has been changed on this date to essentially the Anglican Ritual (Pope Leo XIII in Apostolicae Curae in 1896 declared the Anglican Ordination invalid because: “In the whole Ordinal [Ordination Rite] there is no clear mention of the sacrifice…Of the priesthood…And offering sacrifice…Every trace of these things…Has been rejected, removed, and struck out.”)

Take a look at what “Pope” Paul VI and Vatican II has heretically eradicated:

(1)    The term  “Sacrifice of the Mass.” Does not occur in either the Latin or the vernacular version of the 1968 Rite.

(2)   The prayer “Theirs be the task to change with blessing undefiled, for the service of the people, bread and wine into the Body and Blood of Thy Son.” Has been abolished.

(3)   The prayer “Receive the power to offer sacrifice to God, and to celebrate Mass, both for the living and the dead, in the name of the Lord.” Has been eliminated.

(4)    “Receive the Holy Ghost. Whose sins you shall forgive, they are forgiven them; and whose sins you shall retain, they are retained.” This prayer eliminated.

(5)    “The blessing of God Almighty, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost come down upon you, and make you blessed in the priestly Order, enabling you to offer propitiatory sacrifices for the sins of the people to Almighty God.” This prayer abolished.

These abolished prayers have been handed down through tradition from GOD and through the Apostles, but Anti-pope Paul VI and his cohorts at Vatican II, with the help of Annibale Bugnini and six Protestant ministers, created and designed these abominable changes. Here’s what Pope Leo XIII had to say: “Nothing is more dangerous than the heretics who, …corrupt with a single word, like a drop of poison, the purity and simplicity of the faith which we have received through tradition from God and through the Apostles.”

God established only one true church through Jesus Christ, the Catholic Church, and Jesus Himself gave Peter (the first Pope), and his successors the authority to forgive sins. Matthew 16: 19 “And I will give thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”

Just as Jesus told Mary Magdalen: “Your past life now has no longer any existence” He will do the same for us when we make an honest and contrite confession, resolve not to sin again, do penance, and, He will consider us a Saint just as St. Francis de Sales has considered the penitent a Saint who’s confession he heard.

What next after confession?  Receive the Body and Blood of Jesus, the Holy Eucharist.  A word of caution: Do not receive the “Holy Eucharist” from the Novus Ordo Church…it is not validly confected.  The requirements for validity are not met in the Novus Ordo Church. In the decree to the Armenians in the Council of Florence, it states the following: “All sacraments are dispensed in three ways, namely, by things of the MATTER, by words of the FORM, and by the person of the MINISTER conferring the Sacrament with the INTENTION of doing as the Church does; if any of these is lacking the Sacrament is NOT fulfilled.” Obviously, changing Jesus’ own word at the Last Supper from many to all, as the Novus Ordo Church has done, is lacking in the confection of the Holy Eucharist.

The four main things necessary for a valid celebration of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass are:

1.      The celebrant must be a validly ordained priest. (Novus Ordo priests after 1968 are not validly ordained).
2.      The celebrant must have the intention of confecting the Sacrament.
3.      The elements of the Mass must be wheaten bread and grape wine, made without additives. Novus Ordo Masses often use just about anything for the matter including Doritos, apple juice and a variety of strange items.
4.      The proper form (words) of consecration must be used. The Novus Ordo Mass has illegally changed the word used by Jesus, many, to all, which does not contain the same meaning.

According to the Council of Trent, these requirements cannot be altered by anyone, not even the Church itself, since they were established by Jesus Christ.

St. Pope Pius V in De Defectibus Ch.5, Part 1: “If anyone removes or changes anything in the form of Consecration of the Body and Blood, and by this change of words, does not signify the same thing as these words do, he does not confect the Sacrament.”

According to this infallible decree, all Masses that use “all” in the consecration are invalid.

Those who continue to go to the Novus Ordo Mass are outside the Catholic Church, and thus, cannot be saved. If you have been attending the New Mass you must confess that you have been attending a non-Catholic service. This confession must be made before you receive Holy Communion at the Traditional Mass.
