Sign of Desacralization

+
J.M.J.

Tenth Sunday after Pentecost

There are diversities of graces… there are diversities of operations, but the same God
Who worketh all in all
(from the Lesson, 1 Cor. 12.4,6).

In Catholic Tradition, Sacraments are, “by ordinance of God, necessary means of salvation and a plenteous source of spiritual advantage” (The Roman Catechism). By its nature, “a Sacrament,” teaches the Holy Church through the words of St. Augustine, “is sign of a sacred thing; or, as it has been expressed [by St. Bernard] in other words of the same import: a visible sign of an invisible grace, instituted [by God] for our justification.” Therefore, in its fullest sense, it is “a sensible object which possesses, by divine institution, the power not only of signifying, but also of accomplishing holiness and righteousness.” Ordinarily, they are given to us in definite forms of sacred ceremonies, why we are commanded since of Old: These are the precepts, and ceremonies, and judgments, which the Lord your God commanded… that you should do… in the land into which you pass over to possess it (Deut. 6.1).

The Holy Eucharist, the fountain and source of all the other six Sacraments, comes to us in the most sacred of all the Christian ceremonies – the ceremony we have received from the pillars of the Church of Rome, the Apostles St. Peter and St. Paul who claims: We have an altar (Heb. 13.10); that is, the Traditional Rite of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in Latin which Pope St. Pius V decreed ex cathedra to be THE “ordinary” form of Divine Worship, to the exclusion of the “New” one “wish[ed]” for by Paul VI, in all Latin-Rite churches until the end of time.

Now that the ministers – from the highest – have dared changed, since Vatican II, the sacred signs which the unchangeable “Catholic God” ordained in operating His same work of justification and perfection, as:

from Roman Catholic priests like to Moses and the Levites of Old ministering before God face to face (Ex. 33.11) – to Protestant “presiders” who have committed greater abominations… men having their backs turned towards the Lord (Ezech. 8.16);

from Roman Catholic priests like to Moses and the Levites of Old going up to the altar of the true God – to Protestant “presiders” who stand as much as possible on the same ‘egalitarian’ level with the assembly and presiding at a Masonic-Protestant “table” (cf., our post “The Catholic Sanctuary – II“);

from Roman Catholic priests like to the priests of Old donned in royal vestments – to Episcopalian “presiders” in ‘Communion Service’ attire; and,

from Roman Catholic priests like to the Levites of Old who alone could touch and handle the sacred – to bastard hirelings who have no sense of the holy…

Episcopalian 'Communion Service' (moray.anglican.org) - model of the "New" Mass "in vernacular."

Episcopalian ‘Communion Service’ (moray.anglican.org) – model of the “New ‘Mass'”in vernacular.”

The antipope presiding in Episcopalian 'Communion Service' attire (cf., also our post "Desacralization") serving his idol ["I believe... not in a Catholic God. There is no such thing as a Catholic God," in L'Osservatore Romano, 2 Oct 2013] with the "New" Rite of 'Mass in Casa Santa Martha, Rome.

The antipope presiding in Episcopalian ‘Communion Service’ costume (cf., also our post “Desacralization”) serving his idol ["I believe... not in a Catholic God. There is no such thing as a Catholic God," in L'Osservatore Romano, 2 Oct 2013] with the “New” Rite of ‘Mass in Casa Santa Martha, Rome.

it is to them that these things spoken of by the Prophet Isaias especially refer – for these things were done in a figure of us (1 Cor. 10.6): Who required these things at your hands, that you should… offer sacrifice… in vain… The NEW moons, and the sabbaths, and other festivals [the Neo-Catholic 'Liturgical Calendar'] I will not abide, your assemblies are wicked. My soul hateth your new moons, and your solemnities… And when you stretch forth your hands, I will turn away my eyes from you (1.12,13,14,15). Why Our Lord and Savior prophesied that MANY (Mt. 7.22) would claim to be doing validly* His work but never legitimately for: then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from Me, you that work iniquity (Mt. 7.23); cf., our post Priests for the devil. For, Thou wilt accept THE Sacrifice of justice… upon Thine altar, O Lord (from the Communion verse, Ps. 50.51,21)

* Sacred Writ therefore belies the Sedevacantist position that the “New Rite” of the ‘Mass’, of ‘Ordinations’, and ‘Episcopal Consecrations’ are, in all cases, outrightly invalid. See our posts on the Sedevacantist delusions: I, II)

A change in the saving and sanctifying divine designs and operation points no longer to the same God Who worketh (1 Cor. 12.6) with perfection.

And poor Neo-Catholics who, following their proud pastors in contending against God in how the sacred should be administered also, will depart forever into the bitterest fruit of being in indissoluble union with the proud filthy queen of those, deprived of the true Catholic Sacraments, given over to the impurity and debauchery, ‘liberty of opinion’, avarice, and the rest of the capital sins flooding the grounds of both the so-called ‘baptized’ and the non-baptized.

“Let the appointed Sacrifices be offered to Thee, O Lord: which Thou hast granted to be so offered to the honor of Thy Name, that they may themselves become healing remedies unto us. Through Our Lord Jesus Christ… Amen.” (from the Secret of the Mass).

The “Catholic God” of Tender Mercy AND of Just Wrath

+
J.M.J.

Ninth Sunday after Pentecost

God does not only weep when we, like to the adherents of the Synagogue of Satan (Apoc. 2.9;3.9), turn our gaze away from the Truth, fearing that the light which makes us see evil – especially under the subtle appearance of what is good – may ask us for painful sacrifices [of leaving our seemingly impregnable and comfortable Neo-Catholic and Neo-SSPX institutions as our churches, seminaries and monasteries, schools: They that are in Judea... flee to the mountains... wheresoever the Body shall be..., Mt. 24.16.28]. He withdraws His light and His grace and abandons us when we are already far unto the wide ‘happy-clappy’ road for destruction.

No ‘Disneyworld’ with the Catholic God

+
J.M.J.

Feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ

I have labored with crying… my eyes have failed, whilst I hope in my [Catholic] God… What great troubles hast Thou shown me, many and grievous; and turning, Thou hast brought me back to life, and hast brought me back again from the depths of the earth… Turn not away Thy Face from Thy servant (from the Psalms).

We prove the firmness of our faith by persevering in it in spite of its obscurity; we prove that our hope is strong by continuing to hope in spite of adversity and even when God seems to have abandoned us. As an act of faith made in the midst of darkness and doubts is more meritorious, so is it with the act of hope uttered in desolation and abandonment.

The three Theological Virtues are the most appropriate and fitting means of uniting us to God; in fact, the purer, more intense, and supernatural are our Faith, Hope, and Charity, the more closely they unite us to Him. But to help us reach this point of glorious union with God, He leads us through the crucible of purification. The story of Job is re-enacted in some way in the life of every soul dear to God; he was tried in his property, his children, his own person, deserted by his friends, and ridiculed by his wife. He who had been rich and esteemed, found himself on a dunghill, covered from head to foot with horrible sores. But if God is good, if it is true that He desires our good, why does He permit all this? Why does He let us suffer? For God made not death, says Sacred Writ, neither hath He pleasure in the destruction of the living… It was the wicked who with hands and words invited death (Wis. 1.13-16). Death and suffering are the consequences of sin, which God has not prevented because He has willed to leave man free. And yet not only sinners suffer, but the innocent also. Why? Because God wishes to try them a gold is tried in the furnace, purifying them and raising them to a good, to a state of happiness immeasurably superior to that which the ‘Disneyworld’ called the Novus Ordo (the “New [Dis]Order” of the Freemasons – secular or Vatican II-sponsored to which the mainstream-SSPX train under Msgr. Fellay is now bound) offers. Thus, God permits the sufferings of the innocent, and even uses the consequences of sin – wars, disorders, social and personal injustices – for the greater good of His elect (reduced to the Scriptural remnant of pockets of “Catholic Resistance“).

It is often true, however, that when we are undergoing purification we neither see nor understand the reason for it. God does not account for His actions nor does He reveal His plans to us; therefore, it is difficult to endure in Faith and Hope – difficult, but not impossible, for God never sends us crosses which are beyond are strength, just as He never abandons us unless we first abandon Him.

The least act of Hope, of supernatural trust in God, as with Faith, made in the midst of our present tribulations and sorrows, in a state of interior or exterior desolation, is worth far more than a thousand acts made in times of joy and prosperity. When we are suffering in mind, heart, or body, when we are experiencing the void of abandonment and helplessness – especially even in our endeavor not only to find and posses the Truth but more so to love It, for the apostates and even the ‘gang’ of Msgr. Fellay (of the institutional-SSPX*) know very well Catholic Theology – when we find ourselves a prey to the repugnances and rebellions of nature which, being catered to by the “New [Dis]Order” of things inside and outside of the institutional mainstream-Church under the banner of the Masonic ‘Naturalism’,** would like to throw off the yoke of the Lord in the Traditional Catholic Order of things (personal, ‘spiritual’, and social), we cannot pretend as the Neo-citizens and ‘faithfuls’ do to have the comforting feeling of hope, of confidence; often we may even experience the opposite sentiment, and yet, even this state we can make acts of Hope and confidence which are not felt but willed. The Theological Virtues are practiced essentially by the will. When they are accompanied by feeling, the practice of them is pleasant and consoling; but, when the act must be made by the will alone, then this exercise is dry and cold, but it is not for this reason of less merit; on the contrary, it is even more meritorious and therefore gives more glory to God. We should not therefore be disturbed if we do not feel confidence; we must will, aided by the Holy Ghost, to have confidence, to will to hope, to hope at any cost, in spite of all the blows God may inflict on us by means of crosses. This is the moment to repeat with Job: Although He should kill me, I will trust in Him (13.15). We must not deceive ourselves, thinking we can go through these tribulations without have to fight against discouragement, against temptations to distrust, and perhaps even to despair; this is the reaction of nature which rebels against that which wounds it.

* The ‘Traditionalists’ caught up in the comfort and convenience of institutions.

** The fundamental principle behind the 1789 and Vatican II ‘Enlightenment’ on the so-called ‘Rights and Dignity of Man’. ‘[g]od made me this way; respect and don’t judge.

The good Lord knows our weakness – not in Neo-Catholic sense: sin diluted thus; He pities us as long as we stand in truth before Him. These feelings do not offend God, provided we always try to react by making acts of confidence with our will. Every time a wave of discouragement tries to carry us away, we must react against it by anchoring ourselves in God by a simple movement of trust; even if our spiritual life should be reduced, for certain periods, to this exercise alone, we will not have lost anything but we will have gained much. It is precisely by going through these crosses that we reach the heroic practice of Faith and Hope; and the heroism of the virtues is necessary for the attainment of sanctity.

“Dumb dogs not able to bark”

+
J.M.J

Feast of St. Dominic
Founder of the Order of Preachers

The Order of Friars Preachers used to be the Church’s champion of orthodoxy “par excellence” – until Vatican II when this perverted Council, launched in 1962 by the so-called ‘good Pope John XXIII’ and championed by the ‘great Pope John Paul II’, refused to refer anymore to the original “Bible-only” fundamentalists as “heretics” by calling them “Churches” (“Unitatis Redintegratio” or the “Decree on Ecumenism,” n. 19) – thus, bestowing on them the dignity fitting only to Christ’s true Catholic vineyard (from the Holy Gospel, Jn. 15.1-7, Feast of St. Peter Verona, Dominican Martyr). Vatican II contended in judgment against the Eternal Word Who: 1) would build only the “Church” (Mt. 16.18) – not ‘Churches'; 2) condemned the revolters from Catholic communion by heresy as “sects of perdition” (2 Pet. 2.1); all the while the ‘champions of orthodoxy’ eerily fell silent in the name of ‘false obedience': “dumb dogs not able to bark” (Is. 56.10) – the flaming torch in the mouth of God’s ‘Dalmatian’ was extinguished.

The Dominicans (and those of the major religious Orders of the Church: Benedictines, Augustinians, Franciscans, Calced and Discalced Carmelites, the Jesuits) of the so-called “Vatican II-Church” were clearly robbed of their charism: solid refutation of errors. Engaging in the “Bad Romance” of Ecumenism of the pseudo-Church with false religions, they are directed to preach: ‘LUV’

Vatican II, by its document “Unitatis Redintegratio” or the so-called ‘Decree on Ecumenism’, also effectively barred ‘empowered lay men and lay women’ from rising to the office of Apologist (which is proper only to a cleric – why we call this the “New ‘Catholic’ DisOrder”). But these “New” ‘Catholic Faith Defenders’ did not get the message why the so-called “superforce of the anti-Church lodged in the Vatican” (cf., our post, “The Year 1929“) “installed” the man Bergoglio (as anti-pope, cf., our post “Saggitam Electam – I” on the canonically anomalous “Declaratio” of ‘resignation’ by Pope Benedict XVI) who did not mince words: “Proselytism is a solemn nonsense” (in “La Reppublica,” 1 Oct. 2013). Will they finally ‘obey’ their ‘pontifex’ as they would have us in the Catholic Resistance do?

To those who would like to discern a true Dominican vocation, see our Traditional Catholic “Vocations” section.

Our Riches

+
J.M.J.

Eighth Sunday after Pentecost

Today, again, as at last Sunday, St. Paul, in the Epistle of the Mass (Rom. 8.12-17), compares the two lives which always struggle within us: the life of the old man, slave to sin and the passions, from which come the fruits of death, and that of the new man, the servant, or better, the child of God, producing fruits of life. If you live according to the flesh, you shall die, but if, by the Spirit, you mortify the deeds of the flesh, you shall live. The Traditional Sacrament of Baptism has begotten us to the life of the spirit, but it has not suppressed the life of the flesh in us; the new man must always struggle against the old man, the spiritual must fight against the corporeal. Baptismal grace does not excuse us from this battle – contrary to the un-Scriptural teaching of the ‘Bible-only’ sectarians who claim they were already saved – but it gives us the power to sustain it. We must be thoroughly convinced of this so that we will not be deceived or disturbed if, after many years of living a spiritual life, certain passions, which we thought we had subdued forever, revive in us. Unfortunately, to the perdition of so many in the “New ‘Order'”, driven as they were by their very own pastors corrupted, if not outrightly perverted, in the school of the so-called “New ‘Catholic THEOlogy'” this battle has been de-Catholicized by way of ‘appreciation’ of the Masonic school of ‘naturalism’ (anathematized by Pope Leo XIII in his volley against the partisans of the Synagogue of Satan, the Encyclical Humanum genus).

But this battle is our earthly condition: The life of man on earth is a warfare (Job 7.1), so much so that the Lord and Savior said: The kingdom of heaven suffereth violence (Mt. 11.12). But this continual struggle should not frighten us; for grace has made us children of God, and as such, we have every right to count on His paternal help. You have not received the spirit of bondage again in fear, says St. Paul, but you have received the spirit of adoption of sons, whereby we cry: Abba, Father. To increase our belief in this great truth, he adds, The Spirit Himself giveth testimony to our spirit, that we are the sons of Godnot conformed to the principles and maxims, tastes and fashions, hopes and aspirations, delights and consolations of this world (Rom. 12.2). The Spirit of Truth, our greatest Treasure being the “Highest Gift Divine,” is in us who entertain not the delusion of becoming a part of Satan’s reign – the Novus Ordo or the “New ‘Order'”, whether secular or Vatican II-sponsored.

Today’s Holy Gospel (Lk. 16.1-9) teaches us by means of a parable – which at first sight seems a little disconcerting – how to be wise in administering the great riches of our supernatural life of grace. When the Lord and Master spoke this parable, He certainly had no intention of praising the conduct the of the unjust steward – a figure of the Neo-Catholic and Neo-SSPX pastors – who, after wasting his master’s goods during his stewardship, continued to steal even when he learned that he was to be discharged. However, the Sovereign Lord and Master did not praise him for the clever way he made sure of his own future. The lesson of the parable hinges on this point: The children of this world are wiser in their generation than the children of light. And I say unto you: Make unto you friends of the mammon of iniquity; that when you shall fail, they may receive you into everlasting dwellings. The Saviour exhorts the children of light not to be less shrewd in providing for their eternal interests than the children of darkness are in assuring for themselves the goods of the earth.

We also, like the steward in the parable, have received from God a patrimony to administer, that is, our natural gifts, and more importantly, our supernatural gifts, and all the graces, holy enlightenment and inspirations, and promptings especially to the Truth in the domain of “Catholic Resistance” which demands going that extra mile of sacrifice to the mountains (Mt. 24.16), to our modern ‘catacombs': as the Apocalyptic eagles (Mt. 24.28) who possess that very keen eye for Him Who Is the Way, the Truth, and the Life (Jn. 14.6), gathered together… wheresoever the Body shall be (Mt. 24.28). The hour for rendering an account will come for us too, sooner or later, and we shall have to admit that we have often been unfaithful, negligent, and stubborn in insisting for our narrow human ways of ‘processing’ in trafficking with the gifts of God, in making the treasures of grace fructify in our soul. 

How can we atone for our mis-, rather, maladministration? We must pay our debts to God by charity for Sacred Writ teaches us, Charity covereth a multitude of sins (1 Pet. 4.8). This does not mean material charity alone, but also spiritual charity and not in great things only, but in little ones too – yes, even in the very least things for the honor and glory of God and the eternal salvation of souls. These little acts of charity are the riches by which we pay our debts and put in order “our stewardship.”

When “not everyone who ['prays'] shall enter the kingdom of heaven…”

J.M.J.

Seventh Sunday after Pentecost

08d8f-theblessedmother2

Let us come with confidence to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and may find grace in seasonable aid…[for] in [Her] is all grace of the way and of the truth, in [Her] is all hope of life and of virtue (Heb. 4.16; Ecclus. 24.25).

“May Thy healing work, O Lord, both mercifully free us from our perversities, and lead us to those things which are right…” (Postcommunion). Our Immaculate Mother, Mediatrix of All Graces, constituted by God to be that golden cistern holding among us the living water (cf., Jer. 2.13), indeed pleads for us before the “Lord… Most High… Great King OVER ALL” (from the “Introit” of the Mass, Ps. 46.2) that Her children be freed from “all hurtful things, and [given] all things which be profitable for us” (from the “Collect”) – things which in their sum total could pertain only to the salvation and perfection of our soul (their ultimate end as regards us, for all things must redound first to the glory of the Most High Lord and King). MANY have recourse to our Mediatrix that they may be freed from what is hurtful to their bodily health, commerce, their plans and ambitions to clinch a comfortable lot in the “New World” city-‘paradise’ (very soon to be shaken and annihilated from the face of the earth), and the like this-worldly concerns but , now, not so much as forgetful anymore as ignorant – no thanks to the “false prophets” (from the Holy Gospel, Mt. 7.15-21) “in scarlet and purple” (Apoc. 17.4; cf., the “pseudo-Church” of infiltrated dumbies of the “Synagogue of Satan”) and those they have perverted in Neo-Catholic ‘seminaries’, ‘universities’, and ‘monasteries’ – of the many and deep spiritual infirmities and “perversities” they may be actually immersed in by the subtle deceptions, snares, schemes and suggestions of the world, the ego and the flesh, and the devil: Thy prophets have seen false and foolish things for thee; and THEY HAVE NOT LAID OPEN THY INIQUITY, TO EXCITE THEE TO PENANCE [BUT TO 'LUV'] (Lam. 2.14). They run the risk of being “interested devotees” and therefore of being “false devotees” (St. Louis de Montfort: “Mater Sanctae Spei“). Our Lord warns us in today’s Holy Gospel: Not everyone that [ 'prays' ] shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of My Father Who Is in heaven, he shall enter into the kingdom of heaven.

“Broken Cisterns” at Vatican II

J.M.J.

Feast of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary, Mediatrix of All Graces
(Traditional Carmelite Calendar)

Let us come with confidence to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and may find grace in seasonable aid…[for] in [Her] is all grace of the way and of the truth, in [Her] is all hope of life and of virtue (Heb. 4.16; Ecclus. 24.25).

The Blessed Virgin Mary – Mediatrix of All Graces, the “throne of… all grace of the way and of the truth… all hope of life and of virtue” spurned at Vatican II: “The Honor of the Blessed Virgin Mary Sacrificed to Vatican II ‘Ecumenism’ of Religious Harlotry”. For my people have done two evils. They have forsaken me, the fountain of living water, and have digged to themselves cisterns, broken cisterns, that can hold no water (Jer. 2.13).

A most blessed Feast to everyone!

‘Trouble-Maker’ Prophet

+
J.M.J.

Feast of the Prophet Elias
Father and Prophet of the Order of the Virgin

The Teresian Carmelite Order which was the only one to have been privileged in having its title decorated with the Holy Name of Mary, the “Order of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel”, does not only exude the exquisite sweetness, fragrance, and beauty of the Immaculata but knows also how, like its Venerable Prophet on Mount Carmel, to [stand] up, as a fire, and the Word in them [burning] like torch (Ecclus. 48.1). There were those who reacted against our making ourselves known as the Teresian Carmel or the Discalced Carmelites when we are in no way ‘official’ – not in ‘full’ communion with Rome, according to the ridiculous sense [for one is only either with or against the Lord and, as with any defectible human element of the Church, Rome is now found again as when its first Pontiff contradicted the Cross (cf., Mt. 16.22-23) and the Gospel of the Truth (cf., Gal. 2.11-21)] of the propagandists and mere lay ‘commentators’ of the so-called “NEW ‘Catholic THEOlogy’” – and ‘critical’ of the Popes of Vatican II; now, holding, as with that taunting jest (3 Ki. 18.27) which the great Prophet of Carmel directed against the pseudo-prophets of the devil, that man Bergoglio as possibly the greatest antipope* jerk to have ever laid his impious hands, bedecked with the rainbow-colored flag of those awaiting the recompense God once rained down upon Sodom and Gomorrah (cf., Lk. 17-29-30), on the Chair of St. Peter. Indeed, the Carmel that they know is swept off of what Carmelite is for, following the Vatican of ‘ecumenical’ “disorientation” into integration with the Masonic “New World Order”, it is rubbed off first of what is Catholic [according to the three essential elements that make up the definition of the word] – “to be a Carmelite, one must first of course be Catholic” (Fr. Jerome of the Mother of God, C.D.). On a parenthetical note, it is very amusing how, even in Tradition, whenever an attempt is made to distinguish Carmel from the other Orders, priests and laymen misunderstand what the spirit and charism that is properly Carmelite; as it is written, the great Prophet of Carmel, misunderstood thus: Art thou he that troublest Israel? (3 Ki. 18.17), madest successors after [him] (Ecclus. 48.8).

* Cf., our post Saggitam Electam – I on the “Declaratio” of ‘resignation’ read by Pope Benedict XVI

“Who am I to judge?”

It is written in the Book of the Apocalypse that the Prophet Elias will return to oppose also the Antichrist to his face – the seventh and last age of the Church who would be reproved and threatened for halt[ing] between (3 Ki. 17.21) the true God and the last neo-god: I would thou wert cold or hot but because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will begin to vomit thee out of My mouth (3. 16-17) – so it is with us in this “dress-rehearsal” (Bp. Williamson) for that period of the Antichrist: against the Conciliar Popes who played the dum[b]y High Priest Urias (against whom the great Prophet of Carmel must have first meant God’s rebuke: How long do you halt between two sides, 3 Ki. 18.21) who, even exceeding Urias who built altars for the devil at the command of perverted Achaz (cf., 4 Ki. 16.11), themselves presided at the Neo-Catholic Protestantized “tables” to serve, with a sacrilegious simulated Mass (the so-called “New ‘Mass'” or the Novus Ordo Missae of evident Anglican flavor), the Neo-Christ and the ‘ecumenical’ [g]od concocted by their Neo-Catholic school of Teilhard’s delusional ‘theologism'; and, against the incumbent precursor of the Antichrist “in Pope’s slippers” (Padre Pio, who originally referred to Paul VI as a “Freemason in Pope’s slippers.”). For there came in my heart as a burning fire, shut up in my bones, and I was wearied, not being able to bear it  (Jer. 20.9). Therefore, with zeal have I been zealous for the Lord God of hosts: for the children of Israel… have thrown down Thy altars! (3 Ki. 19.10)

A blessed Feast to everyone!

To fly the colors of the Immaculata

+
J.M.J.

Feast of the Solemn Commemoration of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Mount Carmel

“The Mother of the Lord has clothed us with the garment of salvation
and has enclosed us with the cloak of justice”
(2nd Antiphon, First Vespers)

Our Immaculate Mother of Carmel, as that valiant woman mentioned in the Sacred Writ who makes sure that all her domestics are clothed with two garments in winter time (cf., Pr. 31.21), exquisitely clothes Her children in a two-fold manner in this our militant exile here. She clothes us that we may be 1) preserved in grace – God living in us, we living by Him – and, 2) that we may attain to the glory of that Christian perfection set for us by Our Lord (cf., Lk. 6.40; Mt. 5.48). This is evident in the complete habit of Her Carmelite religious clothed in Her Scapular and in Her white mantle as a cloak of luminous glory resplendent according to Her image Speculum Iustitiae: Speculum Sine Macula (“Mirror of Justice”: “Unspotted Mirror” of the Divine Sun).

Through Her Scapular, She would preserve our heart – which the Eucharistic Heart of Her Little Jesus purifies, cures, nourishes, strengthens, and inflames at the Communion rail – from turning away from its first and only love: the true God of our Catholic Tradition Who, before and above all things, is to be loved with our whole mind, heart, soul, and strength (cf., Mk. 12.30). This is preservation not only from utter coldness or apostasy from God but even from lukewarmness (cf. Apoc. 3.15-16: the seventh or last age of the Church of which our age, the fifth one, is already the “dress rehearsal” (Bp. Williamson) or of halting between our true God and the Neo-Catholic [g]od of ‘liberalist’ convenience and their opposed standards of living (cf., 3 Ki. 18.21). Thus a heart who is conformed more and more to the Heart of our true “Catholic God” through consecration to the Immaculate Heart of our Blessed Mother, of which the Scapular is the sign, glows more and more brightly with the fire of Love Divine in that same liberal-total life giving by Our Beloved Crucified for the honor and glory of God [dishonor, mockery, and profanation of the Sacred in the "New Order"] and the salvation of souls from eternal perdition with the damned in hell ['ecumenical' and this-worldly happiness in the "New"]. This is the spirit She imparts to Her Carmelite religious and through them to the whole Church by means of Her holy habit – the Scapular – but this spirit is already first and foremost Catholic – why our holy Mother Teresa of Jesus had such zealous care for purity of doctrine: unalloyed truth alone leads to the Heart of God, I will espouse thee to Me in Faith (Os. 2.20); whereas, one single minute distortion of the truth leads to the domain of the devil who stood not in the truth (Jn. 8.44).

A most blessed Feast to everyone!

Shrunken But Never – And Will Not Ever Be – Sunken

+
J.M.J.

Feast of Pope St. Leo II

But yet the Son of Man, when He cometh, shall He find, think you, 
Faith on earth? (Lk. 18.8)
“[NOT IN ROME] will the dogma of the Faith
[be] always preserved, etc.” – The Great Sign in Heaven in Her visitation
at Fatima, Portugal ending the Second Part and introducing
the Third Part of the “Great Secret of Fatima

From the “Voice” of Catholic Resistance

His Lordship, Bp. Richard Williamson

His Lordship, Bp. Richard Williamson

Cardinal Pie (1815-1880) was a great churchman of 19th century France, one of the great defenders of the Faith against that liberalism which was eating up the world from the French Revolution (1789) onwards. Pope Pius X kept his works by his bedside and read them constantly. No doubt the Cardinal’s profound grasp of the key ideas driving the modern world played a major part in enabling Pius X to obtain a 50-year reprieve, say from 1907 to 1958, for the doomed Catholic Church.

Doomed ? But the Catholic Church cannot be doomed ! True, by God’s protection it will last to the end of the world (Mt. XXVIII, 20), but at the same time by God’s Word we know that by then the Faith will scarcely be found on earth (Lk. XVIII, 8), and that it will have been given to the forces of evil to defeat the Saints (Apoc. XIII, 7). These are two important quotes to bear in mind in 2014, because everything around us today tells us that the followers of Christ must be prepared for one seeming defeat after another, e.g. the fall of the Society of St Pius X. Here is what Cardinal Pie had to say on the matter, some 150 years ago ! –

“Let us fight, hoping against hope itself, which is what I wish to tell faint-hearted Christians, slaves to popularity, worshippers of success and shaken by the least advance of evil. Given how they feel, please God they will be spared the agonies of the world’s final trial. Is that trial close or is it still far off ? Nobody knows, and I will not dare to make a guess. But one thing is certain, namely that the closer we come to the end of the world, the more and more it is wicked and deceitful men who will gain the upper hand. The Faith will hardly be found on earth, meaning that it will almost have disappeared from earthly institutions. Believers themselves will hardly dare to profess their belief in public, or in society.

“The splitting, separating and divorcing of States from God which was for St Paul a sign foretelling the end, will advance day by day. The Church, while remaining always a visible society, will be reduced more and more to dimensions of the individual and the home. When she started out she said she was being shut in, and she called for more room to breathe, but as she approaches her end on earth, so she will have to fight a rearguard action every inch of the way, being surrounded and hemmed in on all sides. The more widely she spread out in previous ages, the greater the effort will now be made to cut her down to size. Finally the Church will undergo what looks like a veritable defeat, and the Beast will be given to make war on the Saints and to overwhelm them. The insolence of evil will be at its peak.”

These are prophetic words, coming truer by the day, not at all pleasant to admit, but anchored in Scripture. A wise Anglican Bishop (Butler) said in the 18th century, “Things are what they are. Their consequences will be what they will be. Why then should we seek to deceive ourselves ?” Notice especially how the Cardinal foresees the impossibility of defending the Faith on any larger scale than just the home. Not everybody agrees that we have already reached that point in 2014. I might wish they were right, but I have yet to be persuaded that with disintegrated people one can make an integrated society. Contrast with us democratic citizens of today the Roman centurion in the Gospel who understood a chain of command and recognized naturally the authority of Our Lord (Mt. VIII, 5-18) — how Our Lord praised him!

Patience. Next… how the Cardinal himself reacted to what he foresaw. He was no defeatist!
Kyrie eleison.

A Cardinal saw how far the Church must shrink
In these end times, yet never will it sink.
