An Unintentional Debate

Posted by on May 25, 2017 in Pope Michael | 1 comment

Someone asked an honest question in regard to Siscoe and Salza’s book True or False Pope.  I ended up verifying their position on a matter, and have published a new page in regard to this.  The questions continued to come in from this person, and I realized that I was being drug into a debate with Siscoe and Salza, which I believe to be a waste of time.  They are set on their position and are ignoring the plain meaning of words in Ecclesiastical Law.  I cut off the debate last night, and would like to quote two things from our last two emails:

I wrote: “I wish people would get this infallibility idea out of their head.  To become a heretic, you do not have to attempt to declare your false doctrine in an infallible manner.  If you did, then only the Pope or someone claiming to be Pope could become a heretic.”

This person answered: “Please present an infallible law stating that a pope is infallible in every command. I only know that there is an infallible law stating that we must not believe a pope is infallible in everything, and that it is heretical to believe he is. (That does not mean one is a heretic who believes such.)”

Apparently the recognize and resist crowd believe that to become a heretic a Pope must attempt to infallibly define heresy as doctrine, which we know is impossible.

A new section on Catholic Positions on controversial positions is being published.
It has been discovered that quite a few people have reached the same conclusion independently of each other on key points, such Confessional jurisdiction of Traditionalist Priests.
A consideration on Conclavism, which led to the election of Pope Michael is also being added.

True or False Pope?

Posted by on Mar 5, 2016 in Pope Michael | 0 comments

I am devoting a whole section to a refutation of this heretical work.  It is diabolical in how it is presented.  As I am reading, I am finding they pick and choose.  First they pick and choose which representative of sedevacantism to refute.  I am presuming they are taking the argument easiest to refute, and I must admit in some cases they are correct in their refutation.  Also they are picking and choosing which theologian(s) to quote.  It is obvious they have done a lot of research.  It is unfortunate they have not considered all of the evidence. Many of their arguments do not present enough evidence to reach certitude.

Ironically some of the arguments they use against Sedevacantism can also be used against the Society of Saint Pius X, which they are apparently affiliated with.

I have noticed that there are some points I am going to have to go back in to and consider more fully, so I expect to be spending time in doctrine.
They even use things that are on the Index of Prohibited books.
They are using sources that the Sedevacantists will not accept, such as the Catechism of the Catholic Church and the 1983 Code of Canon Law.

Next they are ignoring things, which the Society of Saint Pius X has published, which help refute their arguments.
And I am only on page 125, although I have read the section on Cum Ex Apostolatus Officio.
This is a work in progress, and I don’t expect it to be completed before Easter.

Plan to Move the Church Forward

Posted by on Feb 25, 2016 in Monastery, Pope Michael, Sanctification | 2 comments

Plan to Move the Church Forward

Saint Mathias said: “We must wholly subdue the body through mortification, subjecting it to the spirit of the crucified Jesus.” This is an excellent reminder in the holy season of Lent. Let us look up at the Crucifix and see what Jesus did for us to save us from ourselves. And what does He ask in return. Search the Scriptures for His words and we will see Jesus gives us some specific instructions on how to live our lives. Let us undertake to live a life in conformity to the will of Jesus.

We would also like to ask everyone for prayers for the Church in this holy season of Lent.

Jesus, Jesus, Jesus, end the Great Apostasy. The Great Apostasy will end, when God chastises the world. Some are now speculating this may come as soon as October of next year, which sees two anniversaries. On October 13th, we will celebrate the hundredth anniversary of the miracle of the sun at Fatima. How many of us are praying and doing penance as the Blessed Virgin Mary asked us to do? October 31st sees the five hundredth anniversary of the beginning of the Age of Apostasy with the beginning of the Protestant Revolt. On that day, the Church entered the fifth age, the Church of Sardis. The chastisement is the transition to the sixth age, the Church of Philadelphia or brotherly love. Of course, we should already show love for our neighbor now in preparation for moving into the next age of the Church.

Mortification is essential to ending the effects of the Great Apostasy in our own hearts, and if we look carefully, we will find it there.

Also We are working on the plan for moving the Church forward. If you are interested in being informed, send Us a message with your email address, and We will keep you informed of the plan.

Conversions

Posted by on Jan 14, 2016 in Pope Michael, Sanctification | 0 comments

“Lord, all hearts are in Thy hands: Thou canst bend as Thou wilt the most stubborn, and soften the most obdurate. Do that honor this day to the Precious Blood, the merits, the sacred wounds, the Holy Name, and loving Heart of Thy beloved Son, of granting the conversion of all mankind, especially _________”

How many of us say this prayer or a similar prayer for that list we have of people who we want to join us in the true Faith?

Father Mateo was asked by a priest why he was having no success improving his parish. The priest then detailed all of the projects he had done. And let us stop and think. Haven’t we talked to these people? Haven’t we invited them to say a Rosary with us? Haven’t we asked them to say a Hail Mary each day. Why haven’t they converted?

Father Mateo asked the priest: “Have you tried becoming a holy priest?” The priest answered that he had not. Father Mateo then replied: “Then you haven’t tried anything.”

My friends, aren’t we satisfied with mediocrity? Aren’t we satisfied with being a balanced Catholic?

Saint John Vianney the holy Cure of Ars tells us of three classes of people: “It consists of three classes: the first is composed of those who are entirely for the world; the second are those who are entirely for God; and the last consists of those people who would like to belong to the world without ceasing to belong to God.”

Which class do we want to be in?

We know that it is foolish to be in the worldly class. “I BESEECH you therefore, brethren, by the mercy of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, pleasing unto God, your reasonable service. And be not conformed to this world; but be reformed in the newness of your mind, that you may prove what is the good, and the acceptable, and the perfect will of God.” (Romans 12:1-2) We know we should not be worldly, because they all go to hell.

And so, are we ready to be entirely for God without reservations, or “would like to belong to the world without ceasing to belong to God.” We want to keep one foot in the world and enjoy its pleasures. Oh, we want to avoid mortal sin like the plague, but we are fine with our regular venial sins. Let us compare mortal sin to a fast acting poison, which immediately kills the soul. Venial sin is a slow acting poison. Yes, a billion venial sins will not condemn me to hell, but each one weakens my soul. Eventually that temptation to commit a mortal sin comes along, and I happily swallow the poison and down I go.

Let us compare two things, manure and ice cream. None of us would willingly eat manure, especially if it stunk real bad. All of us would happily eat ice cream. And so, how much manure is acceptable in our ice cream. My friends, sin is like manure and a much stronger word would be more appropriate, but this is for publication. All sin is manure, and yet we happily mix in a little manure with our bowl of ice cream.

The Cure of Ars says later: “No, my friend; you either belong wholly to God or wholly to the world.” And Jesus said it clearer: ‟He that is not with me, is against me: and he that gathereth not with me, scattereth.”

There is no middle ground. As Saint Augustine says there are two cities we can build up in our souls, and we build one of the other. They can’t both exist in the same place. The first is the City of God and the other is the City of Satan.

What confuses people is that there are three places we can go at death, heaven, hell and purgatory. And so, we aim at purgatory, knowing that it is difficult to go straight to heaven. Difficult, but not impossible. “With men this is impossible: but with God all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26)

Actually there are two places to go, heaven or hell. The road to heaven passes through Purgatory. We have a choice, we can do our Purgatory here, purging all worldliness out of ourselves, or leave part of the job for the next life. Old Scratch, Satan, would like to convince us that there is an easy road to Purgatory, and then we can get on to heaven. However, what he wants to do is steer us off of the road to heaven and on to the road to hell, while fooling us in to believing we are on the road to purgatory.

Haven’t you gotten off course? Weren’t you going to tell us how to convert others? “Now therefore saith the Lord: Be converted to me with all your heart.” (Joel 2:12) Why would anyone want to convert to a way of life that we won’t even follow ourselves. We must attract people to the Catholic way of life by living it fully, and letting the serenity that comes from total conformity to the will of God radiate from us.

By the way, have you gotten your spiritual EKG back I talked about a while ago? How healthy is your heart, spiritually?

From the desert,

The Church Needs a Champion

Posted by on Jun 2, 2015 in Monastery, Pope Michael | 0 comments

Dear friends,

We ran across this in Our files this morning. As we begin our Novena to the Holy Ghost, let us consider that each and every one of us are called to be a saint. And some of you on this mailing list are called to be a Champion of the Church. The Pope cannot do it alone. Saint Pius X did not have any real help. He accomplished a lot, but he was unable to stop the Great Apostasy from coming. Pope Pius XII was even further hamstrung. The Pope cannot do it alone.

We ill comment after this piece as well.

The Church Needs A Champion

Copyright ©Lúcio Mascarenhas, July 23, 2009, Feast of St. Apollinaris of Ravenna, Bishop & Martyr & St. Liborius of Le Mans, Bishop

“God… who raises up… the man of the hour” — Ecclesiasticus, x, 4 (CSJ)

“When the Church is in the greatest need, Christ ever come to its help, either by miracles or by raising saintly men. The appearance of the Cross in the heavens as seen by Constantine and his legions brought the persecution of Christians to an end” — St. Jerome

“The Holy Ghost raises up in times of danger for the Church able champions of her cause. For example, St. Athanasius in the time of the Arians; the holy Pope St. Gregory VII when the Church was in general disorder; St. Dominic at the time of the Albigenses; St. Catherine of Sienna at the time of the Great Western Schism; St. Ignatius of Loyola at the time of Luther — Spirag & Clarke, The Catechism Explained (Quoted by Phil. Friedl)

THIS ARTICLE DEDICATED TO THE HOLY GHOST

“Veni, Sancte Spiritus, et emitte coelitus, lucis tuae radium. Veni, pater pauperum, veni, dator munerum, veni, lumen cordium. Consolator optime, dulcis hospes animae, dulce refrigerium. In labore requies, in aestu temperies, in fletu solatium. O lux beatissima, reple cordis intima, tuorum fidelium. Sine tuo numine, nihil est in homine, nihil est innoxium. Lava quod est sordidum, riga quod est aridum, sana quod est saucium. Flecte quod est rigidum, fove quod est frigidum, rege quod est devium. Da tuis fidelibus, in te confidentibus, sacrum septenarium. Da virtutis meritum, da salutis exitum, da perenne gaudium, Amen, Alleluia.”

Wayfarers come and go, but when the faithful find Christ and His Kingdom abuilding, they stay, put down roots, make it their home, lend their shoulders to the great work of building and repairing the Church, soil their hands and clothes, get weary, eat, rest, rejuvenate and return to the daily battle, relieving their comrades. But wayfarers who come as tourists and as voyeurs, participate to varying extents and then turn back to their first true love, leaving the Church which they never joined. And so it is the will of God, that those who are just as Abraham was just, be collected to Holy Mother Church.

There is a widespread and growing “Conservative’ or ‘Neo-Conservative” (Neo-Con) movement in the Antichurch, in Roman Modernist Protestantism, that seeks to evangelize and to bring “converts” to the vile and nauseating religion of Vatican II, the most evil religion in the history of man. And they have succeeded remarkably, creating a great buzz, making a loud noise and being noticed. They have made notable converts: Tony Blair, Newt Gingrich, Lady Spencer (mother of Diana Spencer “Princess of Wales”), and many, many more. I have heard rumors that George Bush Jr. and Bill Clinton are planning to convert.

“Fr.” C. John McCloskey’s Recovering Stray Catholics has now come to my attention, and finding this interesting from the academic viewpoint of studying Satanism, I have researched more about his writings and teachings. McCloskey is a member of the Opus Dei, which is in reality, anything but the Work of God:

“The period after Vatican II was… generally an unfortunate period for our country and our Church” – Fr. C. John McCloskey, Opus Dei

“In the first several centuries of Christianity the Gospel was most successfully preached not to the poor and the outcasts, but rather to the prosperous middle classes and educated upper classes in the cities” – Fr. C. John McCloskey, Opus Dei

“When asked what he would do if the Church ever reversed its position on birth control, McCloskey dismissed the question as an impossible hypothetical, that is, after he blurted out his first, instinctive reaction, ‘I’d be gone in an instant.’ Perhaps there’s room for private judgment after all” – Chris. Suellentrop, Fr. C. John McCloskey, The Church’s K Street Lobbyist, Slate Magazine, Aug 9, 2002

“I’ve experienced personally a side to Opus Dei that I wonder whether it comes from the Holy Spirit. I think Opus Dei is a cancer on the Catholic Church” – Dianne diNicola, Executive Director, Opus Dei Awareness Network (http://www.odan.org)

McCloskey is part of the Opus Dei, which is itself part of the International Neo-Conservative movement. It was born in Spain, but the authentic Conservativism of Spain is represented by Carlism also called Integrism and Apostolicism, the insistence on the exclusion of the false democratist and libertarian heresies from the political field.

In Germany and Switzerland, the true Conservatives were the Zentrum of Ludwig von Windthurst and the Sonderbund; in Portugal, the Miguelists; in Mexico, the Cristeros, and so on.

And more than all of these, it was represented by the Catholic Action movement directly fostered by Holy Mother Church.

Neo-Conservativism is defined as the movement of “disillusioned liberals moving to the right.” As such, while the Neo-Cons are “disillusioned” with their basic liberalism, they do not espouse true Conservativism. There was never justification for two separate and rival conservative movements; the Neo-Conservative movement’s purpose is therefore evidently dishonest. Incidentally, “Conservatism” is an inexact name, as Gilbert Keith Chesterton wittily proved, and as Pope St. Pius X taught at the Congress of Lodi (Speech of Pope St. Pius X on Catholic Action at the Congress of Lodi), insisting on the right of the Church and of Christians to lawful innovation under necessity, while Conservativism qua Conservatism demands a sterile prohibition of any and all innovation.

The Neo-Conservative movement is therefore a dishonest masquerade, it purpose to counterfeit the true Conservativism. And that is what McCloskey is spectacularly successful at, winning a large number of converts. However, they are mainly converts from within Neo-Conservativism itself, from Protestant, Jewish and other branches of Neo-Conservativism. In that sense, Neo-Conservativism is eclectic or liberal, being open to all: there is even a Hindu and a Mahomettan Neo-Conservativism, while the true and historic Catholic Conservativism admits of no external (i.e. non-Catholic) branches.

And yet to what are McCloskey’s converts converting? They are converting to FAKE CATHOLICISM or PSEUDO-CATHOLICISM or ROMAN PROTESTANTISM or ROMAN MODERNISM, Absolutely the Most Abominable and Satanic Religion in the world, bar none. There is, truly and literaly, no religion that is more vile, more apostate, more Satanic than the Vatican II religion.

The basics are quite simple. Vatican II, and the sect that it produced, headed by the five Accursed Antipopes, last of all, Antipope John-Paul II the Great Fornicator and Antipope Joseph Ratfinger the Accursed, teach many monstrosities and blasphemies against God and His Holy Catholic Church, but these points stand out:

  1. That “the plan of salvation” includes Mahomettanism or Islam, and that Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, and others worship the same God as do Christians (“the plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator. In the first place amongst these there are the Mohamedans, who, professing to hold the faith of Abraham, along with us adore the one and merciful God, who on the last day will judge mankind. Nor is God far distant from those (i.e. pagans or heathens) who in shadows and images seek the unknown God, for it is He who gives to all men life and breath and all things, and as Saviour wills that all men be saved” — The Accursed Robber Council of Vatican II, Lumen Gentium, #16);
  2. That Hindus, Buddhists, and other pagans and heathens “lovingly seek and worship” the true God, the same God as do Christians (“From ancient times down to the present, there is found among various peoples a certain perception of that hidden power which hovers over the course of things and over the events of human history; at times some indeed have come to the recognition of a Supreme Being, or even of a Father. This perception and recognition penetrates their lives with a profound religious sense. Religions, however, that are bound up with an advanced culture have struggled to answer the same questions by means of more refined concepts and a more developed language. Thus in Hinduism, men contemplate the divine mystery and express it through an inexhaustible abundance of myths and through searching philosophical inquiry. They seek freedom from the anguish of our human condition either through ascetical practices or profound meditation or a flight to God with love and trust. Again, Buddhism, in its various forms, realizes the radical insufficiency of this changeable world; it teaches a way by which men, in a devout and confident spirit, may be able either to acquire the state of perfect liberation, or attain, by their own efforts or through higher help, supreme illumination. Likewise, other religions found everywhere try to counter the restlessness of the human heart, each in its own manner, by proposing ‘ways,’ comprising teachings, rules of life, and sacred rites. The Catholic Church rejects nothing that is true and holy in these religions. She regards with sincere reverence those ways of conduct and of life, those precepts and teachings which, though differing in many aspects from the ones she holds and sets forth, nonetheless often reflect a ray of that Truth which enlightens all men…. The Church, therefore, exhorts her sons, that through dialogue and collaboration with the followers of other religions, carried out with prudence and love and in witness to the Christian faith and life, they recognize, preserve and promote the good things, spiritual and moral, as well as the socio-cultural values found among these men” — The Accursed Robber Council of Vatican II, Nostra AEtate, #2, emphases added);
  3. That the infidel Mahomettans “lovingly seek and worship” the true God, the same God as do Christians (“The Church regards with esteem also the Moslems. They adore the one God, living and subsisting in Himself; merciful and all-powerful, the Creator of heaven and earth, who has spoken to men; they take pains to submit wholeheartedly to even His inscrutable decrees, just as Abraham, with whom the faith of Islam takes pleasure in linking itself, submitted to God. Though they do not acknowledge Jesus as God, they revere Him as a prophet. They also honor Mary, His virgin Mother; at times they even call on her with devotion. In addition, they await the day of judgment when God will render their deserts to all those who have been raised up from the dead. Finally, they value the moral life and worship God especially through prayer, almsgiving and fasting” — The Accursed Robber Council of Vatican II, Nostra AEtate, #3, emphases added);
  4. To that one can add a third Great Blasphemy, and that is the statement that “The Spirit of Christ (i.e., God the Holy Ghost) has not refrained from using them (i.e. schismatics & heretics) as means of salvation….” (The Accursed Robber Council of Vatican II, Unitatis Redintegratio #3)

By contrast to this sewage, I would like to point out the authoritative teaching of the Church:

“The practice of the Church has always been the same, as is shown by the unanimous teaching of the Fathers, who were wont to hold as outside Catholic Communion, and alien to the Church, whoever would recede in the least degree from any point of doctrine proposed by her Authoritative Magisterium” — H.H. Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum, June 29, 1896

“And since truth cannot contradict truth, we define that every statement contrar to the enlightened truth of the faith is totally false and we strictly forbid teaching otherwise to be permitted. We decree that all those who cling to erroneous statements of this kind, thus sowing heresies which are wholly condemned, should be avoided in every way and punished as detestable and odious heretics and infidels who are undermining the Catholic faith” — H.H. Pope Leo X, Lateran Council V, Session 8, 1513

Dianne diNicola, Executive Director of the Opus Dei Awareness Network, says that she doubts that the Opus Dei is the work of the Holy Ghost. But it is beyond doubt that Vatican II and the Modernist religion are NOT the work of God the Holy Ghost, but of Satan. It is the Spirit Satan that was invited into the Vatican Basilica by Antipope John XXIII to preside over the Accursed Robber Council of Vatican II, and it is the Spirit Satan’s whose teachings are reflected therein, and it is the Spirit Satan who is the Animating Soul of the Vatican II Apostate and Satanic religion.

Whenever the Church was attacked in the past, God has raised up a Champion to defend and to succor Holy Mother Church. Such was Emperor St. Henry II of the Holy Roman Empire of the German Nation, John Sobieski King of Poland, Don Juan of Austria Hero of Lepanto, St. Sophronius Patriarch of Jerusalem who warred against Monothelitism, St. Benedict of Nursia, St. Francis of Assisi, St. Bernard of Clairvaux, St. Vincent Ferrer, St. Dominic de Guzman, St. Peter Canisius, St. John Bosco, President Moreno Garcia of Ecuador, and many, many more.

Today, the world has produced hundreds of Neo-Con False Prophets, Pseudo-Evangelists, such as Pat Madrid, Scott Hahn, David Armstrong, C. John McCloskey, etc., to bring about false conversions. But the Church has yet to see a St. Francis of Assisi, a St. Bernard of Clairvaux, a St. Vincent Ferrer, a St. Peter Canis, a St. Ignatius of Loyola, a St. John Bosco, who can effectively lead the counter-charge against the Accursed Antipope John-Paul II, Mother Teresa, Joseph Ratzinger, and the Accursed Vatican II religion, and lead the repair and restoration of Holy Church to its former grandeur and numbers.

That is what the Church now needs, and that is what I earnestly pray for. Would that the Lord enable me to be such! But I believe myself inadquate, and I seek another.

Many have come, and many have fallen away. We seek, and have as yet not found. Yet, I have faith and trust in the Lord that we shall some day have such a champion. Someone who will assist the Holy Father His Holiness Michael I in this great task.

Lord, please raise us up a Champion to lead us in the Spiritual Warfare against the crowds of our enemies that we may attain to victory!

Now almost six years later, the Church still needs champions, and many of you are called. In fact, if you have not heard from Us to the contrary, then consider yourself called. In several of your cases, God has called you to an apostolate of ill health and suffering. Accept His will in this, We do.

Let us begin with the first step, and that is becoming saints. Who wants to contribute the next post for Us to send out to inspire us all on the road to heaven?
