Thursday after Pentecost
At that time Jesus, calling together the twelve Apostles, gave them power and authority over all devils… (from today’s Holy Gospel, Lk. 9.1-6).
Yesterday (cf., our post “Seekest thou Me?“), Holy Church showed us the working of the Holy Ghost upon those whom He regenerated in Our Lord: that they may discern the Flesh of the living God-Man in the consecrated Host Which is given to nourish and sustain their Spiritual Life unto eternal life; and, corollary to it, to discern also the “Hostiam puram, Hostiam sanctam, Hostiam immaculatam” (the “pure, holy, and immaculate Victim” – from “Unde et memores…” of the Canon of the true Catholic Mass, abolished in the New ‘Mass’) from the “polluted bread” (Mal. 1.7) of the counterfeit New ‘Mass’ (And no wonder, says St. Paul the Apostle, … Satan transformeth himself into an angel of light, 2 Cor. 11.14; that is, a counterfeit ‘Mass’ – a counterfeit work devised by a Freemason – follows the deceiver, the spirit of deceit, who is the master of Freemasons who, according to Pope Leo XIII, constitute “the city of Satan.”).
In today’s Holy Gospel, Holy Church shows us the primary pastoral care that is the working of the Holy Ghost in the Apostles and their successors (on apostolic succession, cf., Ac 1.25-26): to cast out and crush all devils (with all their powers and influences) – power is given them – just as the Savior appeared that He might destroy the works of the devil (1 Jn. 3.8) through the Holy Ghost, the finger of God (Lk. 11.20). After Vatican II (1962-1965) and with the New Rite of Episcopal Consecration (1968), who among the bishops of the New Episcopal Consecration and New ‘Catholic’ Orientation take the same action to be their primary pastoral care? Men who appear in bishop’s regalia but repudiate and scoff at such primary pastoral work of a true Catholic bishop are “false apostles, deceitful workmen, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ” (2 Cor. 11.13) – how can they work against their master, Satan, who transformeth himself into an angel of light? The Apostles and their successors are given also “authority” over all devils – that is, to command the subtly deceitful spirits in the name of Christ to reveal themselves for what they really are with all their schemes and snares.
