To remain Catholic, stay with the ‘official Institution’?

+

J.M.J.

Feast of St. Athanasius – Greek Father and Doctor of the Catholic Church known as “the Voice of Orthodoxy” when the hierarchy of the Church turned almost Arian. 

Against the schismatic Orientals (the self-styled “Orthodox”) who deny the Primacy of the Roman Pontiff over the Universal Church – in one of the numerous instances of forced exile of this venerable Patriarch of Alexandria, he appealed to the authority of Pope Julius who restored him to his episcopal see.

And now, when the hierarchy of the Church turned almost 1789 revolutionary perverts (cf., our post “The Year 1929“) – against the same pseudo-ecclesiology (false doctrine on the Church) current in the mainstream ‘Novus Ordo’ (New World Order) ‘Church’, as with the mainstream ‘SSPX’, which equates the Church to her institutions (churches, seminaries, monasteries and convents, schools, charities, etc.): “to remain Catholic is to stay with the ‘officials'”…

Sorrow for “a little while”

+

J.M.J.

Third Sunday after Easter

“A little while, and now you shall not see Me… Amen, amen, I say to you shall lament and weep… and you shall be made sorrowful… So also you now indeed have sorrow…” (from the Holy Gospel, Jn. 16.16-22)

“When therefore you shall see the ABOMINATION of desolation… standing in the holy place [the Sanctuary]… FLEE to the mountains… For wheresoever the Body shall be, there shall the eagles also be gathered together” (Mt. 24.15-16; 28.29). “Greater ABOMINATIONS… men having their BACKS TURNED TOWARD THE LORD” (Ezech. 8.13).

Feast of the Annunciation

 

“Be it done to me according to your word.”

New Life in Christ

+

J.M.J.

 

“All power is given to Me in heaven and on earth” (Mt. 28.18).

We must bear in mind, says St. Thomas Aquinas in his “Meditations,” that our old life is one consumed in worldly standards and by an age-long experience in sin. But the new life is the heavenly life, renewed from day to day by the grace of God, “be renewed in the spirit of your mind” (Eph. 4.23) so that it stands up to the current of the ‘New World disOrder’, “be not conformed to this world” (Rom. 12.2). To them who “walk in newness of life” (Rom. 6.4) Christ bequeaths the Easter peace: “Pax vobis” (Jn. 20).

The “Easter Sacrament” (from the “Collect” of today’s Mass) is His mighty work in which is transubstantiated the bread into the Flesh of His Heart (as authentic Eucharistic miracles consistently offer) and the wine into His Blood but stops there when It is only validly done so; licitly (in that manner only pleasing to God), then this Sacrament ought to bring about this newness of life by transformation into His image, likeness, and life (subject to the pace of divine dealings with us and ours with His grace – not the instantaneous re-coating Protestant ‘Bible-only’ believers and like-minded ‘liberal free-thinkers’ erroneously imagine it to be).

A blessed Easter!

Yet Carmel lives on…

+

J.M.J.

Feast of St. Joseph, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary

“I looked, and behold Carmel was a wilderness…” (Jer. 4.26).

In giving an account of the first mission of the Discalced Carmelite Fathers in the Philippines, Fr. Sebastian (“A Man Shall Scatter,” 1957) wrote this in his foreword:

“Discalced Carmelites on the missions, how come? I thought…’ People are always asking.

On the Feast of St. Joseph (tomorrow’s) 1581, St. Teresa of Jesus (of Avila), the reformer of Carmelites, earnestly approved a decree published by Fr. Jerome (Gracian), the Provincial. Thus it begins: ‘Inasmuch as Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ… commanded His Apostles to go unto the whole world and preach the Gospel to every creature… it is good for all of us, both religious and priests, who succeed the disciples of the Lord in the Ministry, to have always in our hearts this hunger and thirst for souls… And IT IS GOOD FOR US CARMELITES TO ATTEND most particularly and with great zeal to the salvation and TO THE EXTIRPATION OF HERESIES AND THE CONVERSION OF GENTILES, because we are called imitators and successors of the zealous Prophet Elias.'”

Could there be a contradiction between the  ‘Catholic’ spirit and the Teresian Carmel’s? “Today, we no longer understand ecumenism in the sense of a return, by which others [heretics and schismatics] would ‘be converted’ and return to being ‘Catholics’. THIS WAS EXPRESSLY ABANDONED AT VATICAN II [speaking of ‘ChurchES’ in GS and the false religions as also means of salvation in UR]” (‘Card.’ Kasper of the so-called ‘Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity’). Could the ‘Church’ and her ‘OCD religious’ abandon a doctrine of the Eternal Word? As was prophesied and prefigured of Old, the ‘institutionalist mainstream’ (those whose reality of the Church is equal to her  ‘official’ institutions) would depart and so the Prophet Jeremias continues: “…and there dwells not a man in them” (v. 29).

“One must first be a Catholic before he becomes a Carmelite” (Fr. Jerome of the Mother of God, C.D., in his retreat on the Rule of Our Lady).

But then, the good Lord did “not utterly destroy” (Jer. 4.27)…

“Cast out the bondwoman…”

+

J.M.J

4th Sunday in Lent

Cast out the bondwoman… (from the Lesson, Gal. 4.22-31).

Bergoglio to the schismatic Ethiopian Orthodox Tewahedo sect: “We are brothers and sisters in [c]hrist” (29 Feb 2016). But the Christ of Apostolic “Paradosis” (Tradition, cf., 2 Thess. 3.6): They that are not with Me are against Me (cf., Mt. 12.30). To justify their being with the Christ, the foul-mouthed ‘Pontifex’ insisted on equating them with the CHURCH: “today, the blood of many martyrs of all the ChurchES has become the seed of [Vatican II ‘ecumenical’] unity.” The Word of God belies him: “I will build My CHURCH…;” and that the blood of heretics and schismatics cannot be the blood of Christian martyrs: “…Nobody can be saved no matter how much he has given away in alms and even if he has shed blood in the name of Christ, unless he has persevered in the bosom and unity of the #Catholic Church.” – The Eternal Word through Pope Eugene IV speaking “ex cathedra”, in the Council of Florence, Session 11, Feb. 4, 1442 – See more at: “The Great Tribulation

It is the “pseudo-[Catholic] Church” of Masonic and Communist infiltrators (cf., “The Year 1929″), that Apocalyptic “harlot…in purple and scarlet” (Apoc. XVII), that is ‘brother’ and ‘sister’ to these “sects of perdition” (2 Pet. 2.1).

Christian Redemptive Suffering

+

J.M.J.

 

Feast of St. John of Matha

 

 

 

Lord, that I may see (Lk. 18.41).

The Holy Gospel for the past Quinquagesima Sunday announces the approaching Passion and Death of Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. This is not the first time, though. Holy Church points out what St. Luke noted: the Apostles did not understand and the word was hid from them. The Apostles did not understand, imagining the Savior’s mission to be like another pursuit of an earthly conqueror which is for the rebuilding of Israel; they were dreaming only of triumphs and of occupying the first places in the kingdom. The Savior’s Passion and Death, then, was a cause of upset and scandal for them.

It is not by chance that immediately after the prediction of the Savior’s bitter Passion and a most humiliating Death on the Cross, St. Luke recounts the healing of the blind man of Jericho. We are blind to the mystery of the redemptive suffering by the Cross for it strikes us in what we hold most near and dear – takes away from us what is not God and that which does not lead to God:

Pride of self-excellence and sufficiency – we extol our reason, talents, abilities, good qualities, intelligence on a pedestal of superiority but for which God does not provide a good solid ground; God does not require it yet and with a position in the service of Him and His interests (in which the interest of eternal happiness of others forms part). The Apostles in the Gospel were not so much concerned with the interest of identifying the reestablishment of the kingdom of Israel with the establishment of the reign of God in individuals and societies than as with the great privilege of having a say in the affairs of the kingdom.

Purely material ideal of life – we dream of earthly prosperity the “New World Order” offers with its comforts and pleasures even unto luxury: the fine food for the lusts of the flesh.

These cry out by silent or outspoken complaints against the arrangements of Divine Providence especially communicated to us by our legitimate superiors who stand in the place of our true God; or, by thousand pretexts and excuses of subterfuge or subtly planned ways of subversion to pursue rather their own alternative designs which, because out of the way of God’s designs and order and devoid of the word of our legitimate superiors, must run into stupid inconsistencies by contradictions (the foundation of the religion of Antipope Bergogrelio, of the Fellayite ‘SSPXism’, and sedevacantism).

Let us not run the path of delusion. Can we be imagining that a new road is to built for us? Let us ask not to be exempted from this redemptive suffering of the Cross.

The First Tender Call of Our Salvation

+
J.M.J.

The Birth of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ

infant-jesus-in-manger (2)

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and THE WORD WAS GOD… andTHE WORD WAS MADE FLESH, AND DWELT AMONG US” (Jn. 1.1,14). The Eternal Word was made flesh to fulfill what He promised of Old in giving us His DUE recompense with His coming – for our eyes of flesh, a most wonderful Face of a Babe; for our arms and hands of flesh, a most tender tiny Body of a Babe to hold and encompass with the most tender embrace and care we are capable of; for our breast of flesh in which is hidden our little heart, the same most tender Body to press against; and, for our lower part of body of flesh, still the same most tender Body to hold up while being caressed. This is the first wonderful call of our salvation – how our most tender “Catholic God,” in contrast to the caricature of the infidel Jews and Mohammedans and of the pagans and of the separated, desires to be WHOLLY encompassed by us rational flesh in that blessed eternal embrace one day; an answer which already includes All that we could ever best desire from and for our dearest Divine Infant.

May you and your loved ones be blessed and preserved with What the good shepherds hastened to see and adore – but at a manger! WHERE THE MAINSTREAM LEAST EXPECT TO FIND this Hidden Love Divine. A most blessed Christmas season!

Our dearest Divine Infant is seeking those who would like to spend most genereously their lifetime in attending to His care and service under the sacred apron of our Immaculate Mother of Carmel and so teach others the beginning of that blessed eternal embrace. Postulancy starts in January.

Neo-Catholic rejection of the “Catholic God” of Apostolic Tradition – by omission

+
J.M.J.

Fourth Sunday in Advent

Immaculate Conception2“The Lord is near unto all them that call upon Him: to all that call upon Him in truth” (Ps. 144.18, from the Gradual of the true “ordinary Rite” of the Mass).

But, the “head” of the ancient infernal deceiver: “Thus is [the “New THEO…”* – the Neo-Catholic (g)od] among us: in the neediest, in the sick, in the hungry, in the imprisoned” (“Novus Ordo” ‘Pontifex’ Bergoglio, statement at the opening of door of ‘Caritas’ Center for the homeless at Rome, ZenitNews, 18th Dec. 2015).

* Cf., “Ultimate Delusion of Vatican II-Catholicism” : object, therefore, of a “New Worship” or the “New Order ‘Mass'” falsely so-called as the ‘Ordinary Rite’

Against his de-Catholicized notion of ‘charity’ – the philanthropy the Godless are still naturally capable of: “And if I should distribute all my goods to feed the poor, and if I should deliver my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing” (I Cor. 13.3). The Catholic supernatural virtue of Charity has the true Faith – the Truth – for its foundation. “Where there is no knowledge of the eternal and unchanging Truth [much more its rejection: outrightly, or by distortion, or by omission], virtue even in the midst of the best moral life is false” (St. Augustine, quoted by St. Thomas Aquinas in his “Catechetical Instructions”).

Grave omission – the center of all saving truths: The true “Catholic God” is really present among us but hidden in the tabernacle and more so under the form of validly Consecrated Bread.

“I will put enmity between thee and the Woman, and thy seed and Her seed:
She shall crush thy head” (Gen. 3.15)

“Head” of the ancient infernal deceiver

+
J.M.J.

Octave Day of the Immaculate Conception

Immaculate Conception2

“And the Lord God said to the serpent: I will put enmity between thee and the Woman, and thy seed and… the REST of Her seed. She shall crush thy head” (Gen. 3.15; Apoc. 12.17). The “head” of the ancient infernal deceiver (Gen. 3.15) – sewer of errors: In stating that mercy must be put before judgment, Antipope Bergoglio (cf., the “Declaratio” of Pope Benedict XVI in “Sagittam Electam – I“) presiding at the ecumenically “disoriented” Rome, did not really mean the “rigid, fundamentalist” traditional Theology of St. Augustine whom he quoted. The “God of judgment” (from Lesson I – Is. 30.18, Nocturn I, of today’s Office of Matins) should be altogether forgotten as is the novelty – why this error was passed on as the “NEW ‘Catholic Theology'” (“Ultimate Delusion of Vatican II-‘Catholicism’“) which explains the need for a “NEW Rite of WORSHIP/Mass” (wrongfully referred toas the ‘Ordinary Rite’) : “Set aside ALL fear and dread…” (Statement, a.k.a. ‘homily,’ in opening the ‘Year of Mercy’ for the “New World Order”-‘Church’ of Vatican II, ZenitNews, 8 Dec. 2015).

Traditional Catholic Theology, contained in the formulary of prayers and in the rubrics of the Traditional Latin Mass: filial fear of God – to loose God Who Is our highest Good and ultimate happiness – is the perfection of that servile fear of God’s just punishments in one progressing in the Christian life of grace. The Antipope is belied by the Truth – “Serve ye the Lord with fear: and rejoice unto Him with trembling” (Ps. 2.11). Catholic Resistance : “WITHDRAW yourselves from [them] who walk disorderly and not according to the Tradition which they have received of us” (II Thess. 3.16).
