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.
