Dedication of the Book

This book is dedicated to my Catholic ancestors, who suffered


martyrdom for the Catholic faith and also those who are blessed because
they died in the faith. “Blessed are the dead, who die in the Lord.”
(Apocalypse 14:13) There have been many nights I have prayed for those
ancestors that are suffering dearly in purgatory in hopes that they are to be
released from that horrendous prison. My dear beloved ancestors, I know
that you can see I am writing to you. We are one blood, for we are
Christian, and that we are of the same blood because we come from the
same family. I am looking to thee, princes and princesses of Christ not to
let our family name be disgraced and shamed before God, the Blessed
Virgin Mary, the Angels, and the Saints for having nearly our whole
family apostatizing from the faith. It is because of thee, my dear ancestors,
that I owe my gift of faith. In this day and age, the article of the
Communion of Saints in the Christian faith, is completely forgotten. This
is why I am turning to you my dear ancestors, that you may obtain through
the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the conversions of my family
members. My father, mother, brother, uncles, aunts, cousins. Also those
that are related to me in name, but not in blood.
I ask you especially that you obtain for me the grace that I may be
present at the last hour of the deaths of every family member. I want to
receive them back into the faith, or if having returned to the faith, receive
the last Sacraments of the Church. In addition, I want to pray the Divine
Mercy chaplet at their bedside. For according to Divine Mercy: In My
Soul, the diary of Sister Faustina, Our Lord said to her: “When they shall
pray this chaplet at the bedside of the dying, I will stand between the
Father and the dying soul, not as the Just Judge, but as a Merciful
Redeemer.”

Introduction
The Fruit From The Tree Of Heresy

“The sole reason why society is perishing is because it has refused


to hear the word of the Church, which is the word of life, the word of God.
All plans for salvation will be sterile if the great word of the Catholic
Church is not restored in all its fullness. The right to preach and instruct
the people which the Church has received from God Himself in the
persons of the Apostles, has been usurped by a crowd of prattling
newspapermen and ignorant babblers.” 1
Just like wheat, weeds start off small, looking although
insignificant, but when fully grown and the roots are far into the ground
being well established, they are a danger to the survival of wheat. We must
understand this, I have only three types of heresy written down for this
treatise, when there are probably thousands of different types of heresies,
in one way similar to that of the other. The three types of heresy I have
chosen to use are: Lutheranism, Gallicanism, and Liberalism. Lutheranism
is only a seed, in comparison to the devastation it had on the Church, to
that of Liberalism. However, Liberalism, started off as Lutheranism, and
over the ages of four hundred years, the enemies of the Church sowing the
seed of error well within the bosom of the Church as Pope St. Pius X
stated in his encyclical, Pascendi Dominici Gregis (8 September 1907):
“We should act without delay in this matter is made imperative especially
by the fact that the partisans of error are to be sought not only among the
Church's open enemies; but, what is to be most dreaded and deplored, in
her very bosom.”
We cannot understand the error that I am to refute, historically
speaking, unless we see what happened previously to the Church. “In the
history of heresy we frequently find some individuals, even many, who, in
spite of themselves, are dragged into the torrent of error for no other
reason than their supreme ignorance.” 2

Chapter 1
Result of The Error Lutheranism:
“For unless there come a revolt first.” 3

Protestantism derives it's name from the word protest. To protest


means to oppose or to resist. People protested against the authority of the
Church on the claims that the Bible is the sole authority and by faith alone
is one justified. Martin Luther nailed his ninety five theses “on the door of
the Castle Church of Wittenberg (November 1, 1517).” 4 Martin Luther
called the Epistle of St. James “a straw Epistle.” 5 In St. James it states,
“faith without works is dead.” (James 2:20) This is obviously
contradictory to what Martin Luther preached. Meanwhile, the true horror
was that all people whatever rank they be, were able to interpret the Bible
any way they pleased. By making the assumption that people had the
ability to interpret the Bible any way they please, means that there cannot
be absolute truth. If there are no absolute truths, it is then impossible to
think or to apply logic. For example, we all agree on the absolute
mathematical truth 1 + 1 = 2. But to deny this mathematical truth, is to say
that: 1 + 1 = 2 and 3 etc. We obviously know that this cannot be true.
There can only be one true answer. It is the same concept for the Bible.
There can only be one true interpretation of the Bible. This true
interpretation of the Bible, can only come from the Church, the One, Holy,
Catholic, and Apostolic Church.6 The Church alone produced the Holy
Bible and subsequently is its proper interpreter.
What then are the affects that these teachings of Luther had on
society? Besides the many theological errors Martin Luther held, his main
error that he preached was revolt against both ecclesiastical (the Church)
and civil authorities (the State). Now since day laborers have the ability to
interpret the Bible, they began to leave their humble and poor jobs to go
and preach. In Switzerland a city called St. Gall, a crowd of people left

6 This is what we have today in our society. It is to say that sodomy is right but wrong
at the same time. Both of them are contradictory. This leads to insanity in the mind,
for the mind is resting on a doubt. For doubt is defined as in the Catholic
Encyclopedia: “A state in which the mind is suspended between two contradictory
propositions and unable to assent to either of them.” And as the Council of Trent
affirms in their catechism: “The mind rests content in the knowledge of eternal
truth.” If the mind is not at rest, then it is holding a falsehood.

this city to preach to the nations saying: “did not the Bible say, Go, teach
all nations and preach the Gospel to them?”
Thomas Münzer of Zwickau made an erroneous theological
conclusion. He believed that Christians baptized as infants need to be
rebaptized (this group is called Anabaptists). “He also taught an interior
light given by God to each one to interpret the Bible; that there is no
spiritual or temporal authority; that all things must be possessed in
common by all men, who for one large community of brethren enjoying
equal rights and exercising conjointly both sacerdotal and royal powers.” 7
According to this definition of communism8 that is exactly what Thomas
Münzer of Zwickau preached. Communism is condemned by Pope Pius
XI in his encyclical Divini Redemptoris (19 March 1937). Do you not see
the seeds planted over four hundred years earlier coming to full maturity
in the future? Look too at this tree of Lutheranism when it fully bears the
fruit of Liberalism!
There were many men and women who ran through the streets
barefooted. They preached from the roofs of houses to fulfill the line from
Holy Scripture: “That which ye hear in the ear, preach ye upon the
housetops.” (Matthew 10:27) In God's divine providence, the wicked have
but only a short time to exasperate this filth of error and immorality upon
the earth. (Apocalypse 12:12) When this time is over, God says, “time
shall be no longer.” (Apocalypse 10:6) We all understand that one day we
will pass unto eternity. “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, and
after this the judgment.” (Hebrews 9:27) As Martin Luther, an apostate
Catholic monk, grew older he retired gradually from the forefront of the
Protestant League, which he created for the revolt against the Church. The
apostate Catholic princes from the Protestant League stole the wealthiest
monasteries and bishoprics for their own personal use. Irreligion and
immorality and vices of all kinds flourished wherever Lutheranism spread.
“We experience it daily,” Martin Luther says in a sermon, “that the people
are seven times worse today than ever before under the Papacy; they are
more avaricious, more unchaste, more envious, more intemperate, more
dishonest....” 9 He was especially dissatisfied with the state of things in his
own Wittenberg, where he nailed his ninety five thesis. “Let us get out of
Sodom,” he wrote to his wife, an apostate Catholic nun, in 1545. “I prefer

to wander about homeless, and to beg my bread from door to door than to
poison my poor last days by the spectacle of all these disorders.” 10
Lutheranism sowed the seed of error allowing people to disregard
the authority of the Church, allowing the error of separation of Church and
State to spread rapidly. 11 The Church is the soul of State, and the State is
the body of the Church. Just like the soul, the Church is superior because
she is of Divine origin, where as the body is just a mere instrument for the
soul, so too the State is just the instrument of the Church. If one separates
them, body and soul, the separation results in death, as the Council of
Trent declares, 12 so too does society die when the Church and State
separate, it collapses spiritually, morally, and physically. All marks of
holiness and sanctity disappear since none heed the advice of the Church,
just like when a child ignores its mothers pleas: “do not put your hand in
the fire, you will hurt yourself.” Morality is next to break down and the
very fabric of society becomes degraded, lawlessness that is disobedience,
begins to breed even at a very young age, their parents are either ignorant
themselves or were the very ones sowing this horrible seed. Lastly
physically, when all of this evil is consummated, that is the former and the
latter, absolute chaos is guaranteed and bound to happen for society, for
then you have souls completely detached from God, His commandments,
His Church, and His will. There can simply be no good at all. As what
happened to the Roman Empire. 13 For all that is contrary to God's will is

Syllabus of Errors
12 “Moreover as Christ was true and perfect man, He of course was capable of dying.
Now man dies when the soul is separated from the body. When, therefore, we say that
Jesus died, we mean that His soul was disunited from His body.” Catechism of The
Council of Trent
13 “Upon these factors making for public decadence were superimposed others which
were even more serious moral and spiritual in character. Although Christianity was
now established in classical society, it could not transform it in a day. Not only did it
still contain many pagans in its bosom, but several fairly recent converts let
themselves be tainted by the atmosphere around them. We need only to open St.
Augustine, St. Jerome, or any other Father of the epoch to find proof that
evangelization had not been able to halt the moral disintegration. From the idle upper
classes who lived only for luxury, for silks from the East, perfumes, jewelled rings on
every finger, down to the ordinary idle man in the street who spent his time gambling
at dice, knucklebones, or hopscotch, there was scarcely a free man who was willing to
do an honest day's work. It is useless to dwell on sexual morality; divorce, male and
female prostitution, and a falling birth rate reached scandalous proportions. Despite
imperial efforts to lessen their horror and their number, the gory gladiatorial games

sin, and to sin is to be a servant of Satan.

“Now, the will of God is the perfection of God Himself,


holy, just, pure, merciful, true; and anything contrary to
these perfections in thought, word, or deed is sin. The
conformity of man to the will of God, to the perfections of
God, is the sanctity or the perfection of the human soul; and
the more he is conformed to the will of God, the holier and
more perfect he is. Therefore, to be at variance with God is
to be deformed; and the monstrous deformity of the human
frame is not more humbling nor more hideous-nay, it is not
humbling and hideous, compared with the deformity of the
soul. When the soul is unlike to God, when it is departed
from the perfection of God, when instead of purity there is
impurity, instead of justice there is injustice, instead of truth
there is falsehood, instead of mercy there is cruelty, instead
of the perfections of God there is the direct contrary of those
perfections; no deformity or hideousness that can strike the
eye is so terrible.” 14
continued to provide the mob with its degrading entertainment, and St. Augustine
speaks sadly of those wretches who amuse themselves with carnivals and vile
spectacles even while the enemy is at their gates slaughtering their brethren. And
indeed, in the spiritual sphere itself, the situation was distressing too. Degenerate
paganism was no more than a literary loyalty, a form of conservatism among a few
intellectuals and great lords, and, among the common people, for those who still clung
to it, a hotchpotch of superstitions, astrology, and magic. From this point of view the
atmosphere of the age was so full of miasmas that Christianity itself had to be
constantly on its guard lest it become contaminated. In truth, society at the beginning
of the fifth century was indeed, as St. Eucherius, the Bishop of Lyons, so aptly put it,
'a white haired world.' Roman civilization had sunk to the point where no remedy in
the world could save it, for its physiological wear and tear had gone so far that all aids
were useless. What is so surprising is not that this world died, but that it took so long
to do so. The underlying causes which determined its ruin had been there for the past
two hundred years after all. But the organism was so strongly built that it had
obstinately resisted destruction. In the final hour, when everything was falling apart,
there were to be a few men, even if they were only ambitious careerists or semi
barbarians, who held fast and would not give in. And even among personalities as
ludicrous as those of the last emperors, the sense of a kind of pride, of a last loyalty to
the past, produced a few energetic gestures, such as that of Honorius, who, when
trapped in the Ravenna marshes, with no army, with no means of action, obstinately
refused Alaric the title of 'master of the militia' of which he judged him unworthy.”

Chapter 2
Exaltation of Catholicism:
“For he hath given his angels charge over thee.”15

St. Thomas More once said to the apostate Catholic King Henry
VIII: “The Pope is the descendent of St. Peter, our only link with Christ.”
Those who apostatized from the Catholic faith will immediately cease to
have any link to Christ, for they ceased by their actions to be subject to the
Roman Pontiff.
By the mercy of God, for the sake of the elect, God inspired the
Council of Trent to be summoned. For as Canon Law 222 states: “There
can be no Ecumenical Council unless it is convoked by the Roman Pontiff.
It is the right of the Roman Pontiff to preside over the Ecumenical Council
either in person or through others; to determine the matters to be discussed
and in what order, to transfer, suspend, or dissolve the Council, and to
confirm its decrees.” 16 Without the Roman Pontiff, the Catholic faith
cannot be clarified further, as explicitly expressed in dogmas.

“The best comment on the work accomplished by the


Council of Trent is contained in the Acts of the Vatican
Council (1869): The salutary providence of Christ has been
most clearly manifested in the abundant fruits which have
accrued to the Christian world from the Ecumenical
Councils, and especially from that of Trent, though it was
held in evil times. For the result has been that the sacred
dogmas of religion have been more exactly defined and
more fully stated; errors have been condemned and
repressed; ecclesiastical discipline has been restored and
placed on a firmer basis; the cultivation of knowledge and
piety has been fostered among the clergy; colleges have
been founded to train youths for the clerical ranks, morality
has been revived among the Christian people by the more
accurate instruction of the faithful and the greater
frequentation of the Sacraments. Other results are the closer
union of the members with their visible Head, and an
increase of vigor throughout the mystical body of Christ, the

15 Psalms 90:11
16 A Practical Commentary On The Code Of Canon Law

12
multiplication of Religious Congregations and other
institutes of Christian piety, and a zeal that is constant, even
unto death, for the propagation of the kingdom of Christ
throughout the world.” 17

The Protestant Revolt, having its foundation on sand, that is


apostate Catholics, ceased to obey ecclesiastical and civil law. By not
obeying they ceased to be in submission to the Roman Pontiff. The goal of
Satan is to sift the Roman Pontiff as wheat. “Simon, Simon, behold Satan
hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat.” (Luke 22:31) By
having St. Peter's successor under his (emphasis: Satan's) control,
Catholics would accept error for truth, and truth for error. “Woe to you that
call evil good, and good evil: that put darkness for light, and light for
darkness: that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter.” (Isaias 5:20) Satan
desires by any means to get rid of the Roman Pontiff. For the Roman
Pontiff holds the keys to Infallibility and Jurisdiction, both are necessary
for the preservation of the Church, the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic
Church. These keys are explicitly given to St. Peter. (Matthew 16:19) The
former (emphasis: the key of Infallibility) retains the faithful in the purity
of Truth, which is the Christian Faith, while the latter (emphasis: the key
of Jurisdiction) confirms the faithful with sanctifying grace through the
Sacraments and ultimately the salvation of their souls. Most importantly
Pope Boniface VIII clearly proclaims in his encyclical Unam Sanctam:
“Furthermore, we declare, we proclaim, we define that it is absolutely
necessary for salvation that every human creature be subject to the Roman
Pontiff.” For it is written, “And other sheep I have, that are not of this
fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice, and there shall
be one fold and one shepherd.” (John 10:16) If they, the sheep, are not
subject to the Shepherd that Jesus Christ appointed, how are they to be His
flock?
What then is the first comment that Martin Luther said about the
Pope in the early days of the revolt against the Church? “How sincere
these protestations were, may be judged from the fact that three days after
he had written to the Pope, he wrote to Spalatin, the chaplain and private
secretary of Fredrick the Wise: “I am not sure whether the Pope is
Antichrist himself, or only one of his apostles.” 18 Martin Luther
contradicted himself early on after his departure from the Christian faith.

18 Church History: A Complete History Of The Catholic Church To 1940

13
He professes:

“We freely confess that in the papacy there are many good
things worthy of the name of Christian, which have come
from them to us; namely, we confess that in the papacy there
is true Scripture, true baptism, the true sacrament of the
altar, the true keys for the remission of sins, the true office of
preaching, true Catechism, as our Lord's Prayer, Ten
Commandments, Articles of Faith. I avouch, that under the
papacy there is true Christianity, yea, the kernel and marrow
of Christianity, and many pious and great Saints.”19

However, Martin Luther later confirmed his belief about the


connection with the Papacy and the Devil. “In 1545 he wrote the coarsest
of his pamphlets, Against the Papacy Founded by the Devil, in order to
hinder his followers from attending the Council of Trent.” 20 And as God
would justly say to those obstinate Protestants who acted similarly to
Martin Luther: “Because I called, and you refused: I stretched out my
hand, and there was none that regarded. You have despised all my counsel,
and have neglected my reprehensions. I also will laugh in your
destruction, and will mock when that shall come to you which you
feared.” (Proverbs 1:24-26) Martin Luther died of apoplexy on the 18 th of
February, 1546, in his sixty-third year.

“One evening, towards the end of his life, Luther was


walking in his garden, the stars shining brightly above him.
'See how the stars are shining,' said his wife to him 'O
beautiful light,' he replied, 'but it is not for us.' 'Why? Are we
then disinherited from Heaven?' 'Perhaps,' Luther replied,
'because we have abandoned our state: we cannot return, we
are too deeply plunged in sin, and it is too late to repent.' In
these sentiments Luther died.” 21

Chapter 3
Result of The Error Gallicanism:
“He that heareth you, heareth me.” 22

“In 1673 Louis XIV began to confiscate for his own use the
revenues of all vacant sees and to claim for himself the right
of appointing new bishops, leaving to the Pope the formality
of confirming his choice. When the Popes resisted these
claims, Louis summoned a General Assembly of the French
Clergy (1681) and obtained from it the Declaration of the
Four Articles, known as the Four Gallican Propositions,
namely that: 1) The Pope may not interfere directly or
indirectly with the temporal concerns of princes. 2) In
spiritual matters a General Council is superior to the Pope.
3) The rights and customs of the Gallican Church are
inviolable. 4) The Pope is not infallible, even in matters of
faith, unless decision confirmed by the consent of the
Church.” 23

Gallicanism is just the applicable form of Lutheranism (better


known as Protestantism). Gallicanism is what Martin Luther, could not
ever possibly dream about. Since Martin Luther, the apostate Catholic
monk, believed the Pope to be Antichrist; he would have rejoiced in the
errors of Gallicanism. For the authority of St. Peter's successor was
minimized temporally (meaning in civil matters) and in spiritual matters
(that is in faith and morals) by the Gallican Church in France. 24 In the
French territories of the eighteenth century, Papal Bulls could not be
published without the consent of the Crown (emphasis: the State). Also all
French subjects were exempted from the jurisdiction of the Inquisition and
other Roman Tribunals.25 This Gallican Church in essence was completely
independent. We must define the word independent as, not being subject to

22 Luke 10:16
23 Church History: A Complete History Of The Catholic Church To 1940
24 “Roman pontiffs and ecumenical councils have wandered outside the limits of their
powers, have usurped the rights of princes, and have even erred in defining matters of
faith and morals.” Syllabus of Errors,
25 “The ecclesiastical forum or tribunal for the temporal causes, whether civil or
criminal, of clerics, ought by all means to be abolished, even without consulting and
against the protest of the Holy See.” Syllabus of Errors,

15
the Pope.

“In order to alleviate the financial distress of the State the


National Assembly, in November 1789, decreed the
confiscation of all the immovable property of the Church,
assuming in return the obligation of maintaining the Church
and her ministers from the public funds. The clergy had thus
become at one stroke the paid servants of the State. Nor did
the Assembly stop there. In the following year the
monasteries, convents, and other religious houses were
suppressed, and all Church property was placed under the
control of the State.” 26 (Much of Church property remains in
the hands of the State in 2009.)

When the monarchy fell on August 10 th 1792, September was the


Reign of Terror. There were a number of bishops who were martyred for
the Catholic faith, in addition, 215 priests guillotined. The Christian
Religion (emphasis: the Catholic Faith) was done away with, forbidden,
among the French people. The Gregorian Calendar was replaced by a new
one. Instead of having seven days for one week, the French had ten. They
replaced all the Holy Days of Obligation with those of Republican and
secular “Holy Days”. To top these horrendous blasphemes, a girl of ill
repute was put on the consecrated altar of Notre Dame in Paris, and the
French people worshiped her as the Goddess of Reason (November 10,
1793). This horror did eventually come to an end after a few months.
As one can see so far in history, the first step was to separate the
Church from the State. The devil's second step was to get people to
disregard the papacy, through Gallicanism. The papacy is the foundation
of the Church. You break the foundation of a house, the house will then
fall. “Every one therefore that heareth these my words, and doth them,
shall be likened to a wise man that built his house upon a rock. And the
rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and they beat upon that
house, and it fell not, for it was founded on a rock.” (Matthew 7:24-25)
Did not Jesus Christ found His Church upon the rock? “And I say to thee:
That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the
gates of Hell shall not prevail against it.” (Matthew 16:18) Not even the
gates of Hell can destroy this foundation (emphasis: the papacy) of His
House (emphasis: His Church). For Jesus specifically prayed for St. Peter

26 Church History: A Complete History Of The Catholic Church To 1940

16
and His successors. “And the Lord said: Simon, Simon, behold Satan hath
desired to have you. But I have prayed for thee, that thy faith fail not.”
(Luke 22:31-32)
If the foundation (emphasis: the papacy) of His House (emphasis:
the Church) will not fail, will then His house fall if the floods of apostasy,
winds of heresies, fires of schisms, and earthquakes of impiety attempt to
destroy it?
But if the Shepherd (the successor to St. Peter) is taken away, the
sheep will scatter. “Strike the shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered:
and I will turn my hand to the little ones.” (Zacharias 13:7) When the
sheep scatter the loss of souls is innumerable. For it is written, “All you
shall be scandalized in Me this night and the sheep of the flock shall be
dispersed.” (Matthew 26:31) Without a Shepherd, how will the sheep be
guided? How will the sheep be protected from the wolves? “And the wolf
catcheth, and scattereth the sheep.” (John 10:12)

Chapter 4
Exaltation of Catholicism:
“Thou shalt lie in wait for her heel.” 27

It was on December 8, 1854 (Feast of the Immaculate Conception)


that Pope Pius IX proclaimed the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed
Virgin Mary to be dogma. In defense of this two thousand year tradition
within the Church, God raised St. Bernadette of Lourdes, a young peasant
girl to bring testimony into the eyes of men, the godless and the impious.
There have been numerous miracles at Lourdes. This simple but
amazingly pious lady, who became a nun, changed innumerable souls.
One of her famous conversations was the following:
“The Prussians are at our gates,” said the Chevalier Gougenot des
Mousseaux to St. Bernadette, “are you not afraid of them?”
“Not in the least.” Replied St. Bernadette.
“Then you think there is nothing to fear!”
“I am only afraid of bad Catholics.”
“Of nothing else?”
“Nothing else, Monsieur.” 28

“The Blessed Virgin appeared many times to the young


peasant girl St. Bernadette Soubirous in the grotto of
Massabielle, near Lourdes, France. 'I am the Immaculate
Conception,' were the words of the vision. A miraculous
spring suddenly came into existence. More than half a
million pilgrims annually visit the shrine of Our Lady of
Lourdes from all parts of the world, and many well attested
cures have been wrought there by bathing in the water or by
merely visiting the shrine, but especially by the Benediction
of the Blessed Sacrament. Bernadette was canonized on Dec.
8, 1933. In 1864 Pius IX published the famous Syllabus, a
collection of eighty propositions which reiterated the
condemnation of pantheism, naturalism, socialism,
communism, freemasonry and other forms of religious
liberalism, some of which were then finding support outside
and inside the Church. “The sense of the propositions must

27 Genesis 3:15
28 Bernadette of Lourdes

18
be gathered from the various allocutions, encyclicals, and
letters of the Pontiff in which the context will give their full
condemned meaning,” because the condemned propositions
are nothing but excerpts from these documents. The greatest
spiritual triumph of Pius IX was the Vatican Council, the
first General Council held since Trent. When he convened it
by the Bull Aeterni Patris (June 29, 1868), the times were so
troubled that few believed it could ever meet. But on
December 8, 1869, 719 representatives of the Church
amongst whom were almost three fourths of the entire
episcopate, assembled at the Vatican. In the first sessions the
fundamental truths of Christianity: God's existence, nature,
and providence; the possibility and fact of revelation; the
harmony between reason and revelation were defined, and
the principal errors of the day: atheism, materialism,
rationalism, and pantheism, were condemned. In most parts
of the Church the definition of Papal Infallibility was
received with enthusiasm.” 29

With the advent of proclaiming Papal Infallibility as dogma, the


Church revivified Her rights as being the only source of salvation, as St.
Jerome full of angelic ardor speaks out against the opinion of Jovinian: “I
speak to the successor of the fisherman, and to the disciple of the cross.
Following no chief but Christ, I am united in communion with your
Holiness, that is, with the chair of Peter. I know that on that rock is built
the Church. Whoever will eat the lamb outside this house is profane.
Whoever is not in the ark of Noah shall perish in the flood.” 30
The errors of the world, the flesh, and the devil, wanted to sift the
successor St. Peter, as Jesus foretold, “Simon, Simon, behold Satan hath
desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat.” (Luke 22:31) By also
defining Papal Infallibility, it is a further proof of the truth, that the papacy
is an absolute necessity. The Pope is precious as a pearl. Did our Lord say
not to cast our pearls before the swine? (Matthew 7:6)

Chapter 5
Result of The Error Liberalism:
“He hath but a short time.” 31

What is the definition of Liberalism? “Liberalism is, therefore, the


radical and universal denial of all divine truth and Christian dogma, the
primal type of all heresy, and the supreme rebellion against the authority
of God and His Church. As with Lucifer, its maxim is, 'I will not serve'.” 32
Let us remember what we must look out for, the revolt. “Let no man
deceive you by any means: for unless there come a revolt first, and the
man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition.” (II Thessalonians 2:3)
In 1903 Pope St. Pius X said in his first Encyclical E Supremi,
“When all this is considered there is good reason to fear lest this great
perversity may be as it were a foretaste, and perhaps the beginning of
those evils which are reserved for the last days; and that there may be
already in the world the 'Son of Perdition' of whom the Apostle speaks (II
Thessalonians 2:3).”
Paul VI was 6 years old when the encyclical E Supremi was
written. Paul VI wrote: “The Church is a problem. And here we face a
strange phenomenon indeed.” 33 Paul VI addressed the following: “The tail
of the devil is functioning in the disintegration of the Catholic world. The
darkness of Satan has entered and spread throughout the Catholic Church
even to its summit.” 34 For Paul VI is an antagonist just like Satan himself.
Paul VI has reached even to the summit of the Catholic Church for he is
reigning unopposed. At the time of Paul VI there was no Vicar of Christ.
“And now you know what withholdeth, that he may be revealed in his
time.” (II Thessalonians 2:6) A true Vicar of Christ withheld the power of
Antichrist. It was only until the death of Pope Pius XII that Antichrist
(Paul VI) could be revealed in time. Could we then not say that Paul VI is
working with Satan? Is not Satan the antagonist to Christ? Paul VI
continues on in his address: “Apostasy, loss of faith, is spreading
throughout the world and into the highest levels within the Church.” What
a coincidence, this guy gets illegally elected for the seat of the papacy, and
apostasy is at “the highest levels within the Church.” Paul VI is saying in
so many words I am The Antichrist. Please do not forget that part of the
31 Apocalypse 12:12

definition of Antichrist 35 is a mass apostasy from the Catholic faith!
There can be no worse time man will ever experience, than the age
when The Antichrist has walked upon the earth. In the early 1900's, a
Catholic priest stated, that there are no souls who are currently practicing
the interior life of prayer. When that happens he states the power of God is
in chains. The Saints teach that when there are no souls who practice
prayer in the interior life, a whole nation will fall into decline. And that
God had given evil men the power to do whatever they desire. 36 If there
are no souls in the world that practice the interior life of prayer, could not
the whole world then fall into decline?
King David cries out: “Save me, O Lord, for there is now no saint:
truths are decayed from among the children of men.” (Psalms 11:2)
That is to say, there are no Saints who are training themselves in
the interior life of prayer. And that the Catholic faith is forgotten and
despised among men. Pope Pius XII told us: “There will be storms and
winds. The Church has not finished her martyrdom. But a cry of
reawakening is passing through the world we are in a springtime of
history. May God grant that it will be one of the most beautiful springs
man has experienced, after one of the longest and bitterest winters, a
spring which precedes one of the most brilliant and rich summers.”37
Here I am going to summarize the definition of Antichrist into a
couple of points.
1. Antichrist will be an individual human being.
2. Antichrist will have an extreme hatred of the Catholic Faith.
• Paul VI stated that the Church is the problem.
3. Antichrist will cause a widespread Apostasy from the Catholic
Faith.

35 “A designation of Christ's chief antagonist, who will precede his second coming and
the end of the world, and whose activity will be directly connected with a widespread
apostasy from the Christian faith. He will be an individual human personality, marked
by utter lawlessness, self deification, hatred of Christian truth, and rivalry with Christ
through mock miracles. He will cause the fall of many, but be destroyed by Christ.” A
Catholic Dictionary
36 The Soul of the Apostolate, Jean-Baptiste Chautard O.C.S.O., published in the early
1900's: “It is a terrible misfortune when there is not to be found one really interior
soul among all those at the head of important Catholic projects. Then it seems as
though the supernatural had undergone an eclipse, and the power of God were in
chains. And the Saints teach us that, when this happens, a whole nation may fall into a
decline, and Providence will seem to have given evil men a free hand to do all the
harm they desire.”
37 Will The Catholic Church Survive The Twentieth Century?

21
• Paul VI also informed us that apostasy is at the highest levels
within the Church.
4. Antichrist will be destroyed by Christ
• This I will prove below.
Now to I am going to prove to you that Paul VI has the mark of the
beast, 666. Let us remember that Paul VI was six years old when Pope St.
Pius X talked about the Antichrist already being born (emphasis:
encyclical E Supremi). Paul VI was born on the twenty sixth of September
in 1897. He died on the sixth of August in 1978. Paul VI died on the Feast
of the Transfiguration of our Lord Jesus Christ What is the
Transfiguration? It is the manifestation of Divine Glory of Jesus Christ.
St. Matthew states: “And he was transfigured before them. And His
face did shine as the sun: and His garments became white as snow.”
(Matthew 17:2) St. Paul says: “And then that wicked one shall be revealed
whom the Lord Jesus shall kill with the spirit of his mouth; and shall
destroy with the brightness of his coming.” (II Thessalonians 2:8)
Therefore Paul VI, fulfilled being Antichrist by being destroyed by Christ,
for he died on the feast day of the Transfiguration of Christ, for Christ
killed the wicked one with the spirit of His mouth. Let us remember: “out
of His mouth proceedeth a sharp two edged sword.” (Apocalypse 19:21).
Here is the signature of Paul VI.

Take a close look at the P's which begin his name. When the name
is flipped upside down you can see the three distinct sixes.

22
St. John announces: “Here is wisdom. He that hath understanding,
let him count the number of the beast. For it is the number of a man: and
the number of him is six hundred sixty six.” (Apocalypse 13:18) We thus
have fulfilled the prophecy of 666, the mark of the beast.
• Paul VI was six years old when Pope Saint Pius X talked about
Antichrist already being born.
• Paul VI was killed by Christ since he died on August sixth the
Feast of the Transfiguration of Christ. (Paul VI fulfilled the
definition of the Antichrist)38
• His signature was 666.
• We can thus conclude that Paul VI is The Antichrist.
Here now I am going to combine biblical and church history to
show that many events foretold by Jesus Christ in the Bible have come to
light. There is much to take in and understand. Our Lord commanded us,
“he that readeth let him understand.” (Matthew 24:15) As I have studied
history I have seen similar correlations. I am going to take two events in
history. Both of these events have one thing in common. Those who were
obliged to pray for themselves as well as for their neighbor failed horribly.
“And because iniquity hath abounded, the charity of many shall grow
cold.” (Matthew 24:12) God sent two punishments, the Black Plague and
The Antichrist.

38 “A designation of Christ's chief antagonist, who will precede his second coming and
the end of the world, and whose activity will be directly connected with a widespread
apostasy from the Christian faith. He will be an individual human personality, marked
by utter lawlessness, self deification, hatred of Christian truth, and rivalry with Christ
through mock miracles. He will cause the fall of many, but be destroyed by Christ.” A

Cause: Catholics failed to pray the rosary in the 13-14 century.
Affect: Punishment of the Black Plague
Cause: Our Lady commanded Catholics to pray the rosary at
Fatima, they failed.
Affect: Punishment of the Coming of Antichrist

“All things, even the holiest, are subject to change,


especially when they are dependent on man's free will. It is
hardly to be wondered at, then, that the Confraternity of the
Holy Rosary only retained its first fervor for one century
after it was instituted by Saint Dominic. After it was like a
thing buried and forgotten. Doubtless, too, the wicked
scheming and jealousy of the devil was largely responsible
for getting people to neglect the Holy Rosary, and thus block
the flow of God's grace which it had drawn down upon the
world. Thus, in 1349, God punished the whole of Europe
and sent a most terrible plague that had ever been known
into every land. It started first in the east and spread
throughout Italy, Germany, France Poland and Hungary,
bringing desolation wherever it came, for out of a hundred
men hardly one lived to tell the tale. Big towns, little towns,
villages and monasteries were almost completely deserted
during the three years that the epidemic lasted. As long as
priests followed Saint Dominic's example and preached
devotion to the Holy Rosary, piety and fervor thrived
throughout the Christian world and in those religious orders
which were devoted to the Rosary. But since people have
neglected this gift from Heaven, all kinds of sin and disorder
has spread far and wide.” 39

the sealed envelope in his secret archives. It will be opened
in 1960.41 She opened her hands, as in the first two
apparitions, but this time the light from her palms penetrated
the earth and seemed to throw Hell open before them. They
seemed to be before a great sea of fire, into which were
plunged demons and souls in human form, black and
burning, like live transparent coals. The fire lifted them up,
but they fell back on all sides, without weight or balance,
amid blood curdling screams of pain and despair. The
demons had the form of strange animals, horribly repulsive.
“You have seen Hell, where the souls of poor sinners
go. To save them Our Lord wishes to have established in the
world devotion to My Immaculate Heart. If people do what I
shall tell you, many souls shall be saved, and there will be
peace in the world. The war is going to end. But if they do
not stop offending God, another and worse war will begin in
the reign of Pius XI. When you shall see a night illumined
by an unknown light, know that it is the great sign that God
gives you that He is going to punish the world for its crimes
by means of war, hunger, persecution of the Church and of
the Holy Father.
“To prevent this I shall come to ask the consecration
of Russia to My Immaculate Heart and the Communion of
Reparation on the first Saturdays. If they listen to my
requests, Russia will be converted and there will be peace. If
not, she will scatter her errors throughout the world,
provoking wars and persecutions of the Church. The good
will be martyred, various nations will be annihilated.
“In the end, My Immaculate Heart will triumph. The
Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and a certain
period of peace will be granted to the world.” 42

Let us bring to light in points the important parts.


1. There will be a second and worse war43 if people do not stop
offending God.
41 When Cardinal Ottaviani asked Sister Lucy in 1955 why the Third Secret would be
allowed to be revealed in this particular year, she replied, “Because then it will seem
clearer.”

2. He is going to punish people by war, hunger, persecution of the
Church and the Holy Father.
3. Russia will spread her errors throughout the world.
4. Various nations will be annihilated.
5. This point I will bring up in a later chapter. In the end, My
Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate
Russia to me, and a certain period of peace will be granted to the
world.

“And to the angel of the church of Sardis, write: These things saith
he, that hath the seven spirits of God, and the seven stars: I know thy
works, that thou hast the name of being alive: and thou art dead.”
(Apocalypse 3:1-4) We know God, hates the lukewarm souls more than a
soul that is cold, meaning dead to divine grace. “Because thou art
lukewarm, and neither cold, nor hot, I will begin to vomit thee out of my
mouth.” 44 It is as if Jesus Christ said to this poor soul:

“You did not have the flaming pillar of charity and purity of
intention you ought to have conducted in your life, which
the Divine Graces I have given you should have enabled you
to do them with ease. The Divine Graces that I have given
you, should have made your pilgrimage on Earth feel more
like a banquet at a King's feast. Nor did you lead a
scandalous life of a devil, which would have made my
judgment on your soul with ease. I would have cursed you
just like I did to the barren fig tree, the Devil, and his angels.
I stand at the Throne of Infinite Divine Justice and Purity
disgusted, I wish to vomit you from my presence with all
My Infinite Power, because of the thought that such a soul,
bore the name Christian.”

This is exactly what happened during the nineteenth and twentieth


century, the clergy and the faithful were almost completely lukewarm in
their faith. “I know thy works, that thou hast the name of being alive: and
thou art dead.” They are alive, but dead. Materially speaking, Catholics
were alive, but they were completely dead to grace and works of penance.
“It is a bad sign,” says Fr. Martial Lekeux author of the Art of Prayer, “for
love of prayer is the barometer of religious vitality.” Fr. Mateo the author

44 Apocalypse 3:16

26
of Night Adoration In The Home who published this book in the 1950's
writes:

“We are, in fact, on the brink of an abyss of social


corruption: the home already undermined in its very
foundations by this upheaval of immorality; a good part of
that portion of society which by right is considered the best,
the most Christian, seriously affected by the contagion of
unbridled sensuality; the woman who thinks herself good
and even devout, dressed in a style not only immodest but
scandalous, dancing, conversing and amusing herself in a
manner that would imply she had never been baptized. In
her worldly mindedness she will even smile with the air of
a pagan when the Pope or Bishop condemns these excesses,
preaching modesty of dress and chastity of heart and of
social life. And the young girl who scarcely a few years ago
was as a lily for the altar of Mary Immaculate, is caught
today in the giddy whirl of pleasure and passion, to fall,
alas, a withered flower; in the course of a short time, under
the pressure of the worldly current, she is talking and
dressing in an indecent fashion like everybody else, yet she
still calls herself a 'Child of Mary.' What a mockery!”

Living without the interior life, according to Pope Pius XII is the
heresy of action. “Without divine grace, nothing holds together, nothing
counts, nothing has supernatural value. Without the interior life we fall
into the heresy of action.” 45

“Our whole purpose,” Cassian one of the Fathers of the


Church exhorts us, “our entire perfection, is to pray
unceasingly. That is the reason which helps us brave labor
and seek contrition of heart. The whole edifice of the virtues
has but one purpose, namely, to attain perfection in prayer.
Without this perfection, which unifies all the parts and
makes for a solid ensemble, there will be neither solidity or
durability. This constancy in prayer is neither acquired nor
achieved without virtues, but, on the other hand, without
prayer the virtues, which serve as its foundation, would

45 The Art of Prayer

27
never attain perfection.” 46

Catholics refused to work with grace for their own sanctification.


The will of God consists in our sanctification. “For this is the will of God,
your sanctification.” (I Thessalonians 4:3) For the world has come to
know World War II and its horrors. The fulfillment of Our Lady's words
came true. “There will be a second and worse war if people do not stop
offending God.” Catholics especially, kept offending God, we therefore
were punished by God. “I am only afraid of bad Catholics.” 47
In Our Lady's words: “He is going to punish people by war48,
hunger,49 persecution of the Church and the Holy Father.” The words said
by Our Lady, must first be understood in a spiritual manner. Hunger is
signified by the taking away of the Sacrifice of the Mass. “And Jesus said
to them: Can the children of the bridegroom mourn, as long as the
bridegroom is with them? But the days will come, when the bridegroom
shall be taken away from them, and then they shall fast.” (Matthew 9:15)
The faithful, are sustained by divine graces, but through this Sacrament
especially. Reinforced by the writings of St. Bonaventure:

“That in the Mass God manifest to us all the love that He has
borne us, and includes in it, as in a compendium, all His
benefits. On this account the Devil has always endeavored to
abolish the Mass throughout the world by means of heretics,
making them the precursors of Antichrist who, before all
things, will endeavor to abolish, and in fact will, in
punishment for the sins of men, succeed in abolishing the
Holy Sacrifice of the Altar, according to the prediction of
Daniel: And strength was given him against the continual
sacrifice because of sins.”

“Besides the benefits which we ask in holy Mass, our good


God grants many others which we do not ask. St. Jerome
distinctly declares, Absque dubio dat nobis Dominus quod in
46 The Art of Prayer
47 St. Bernadette
48 The United States alone in the twentieth century spent roughly twenty six years in war
out of the last one hundred.
49 According to some estimates there are roughly 25,000 people that die every day from
lack of nutrition. That means roughly 1042 are dying every hour, and 17 people every
minute.

28
Missa petimus; et qoud magis est, sape dat quod non
petimus (cap. cum. mart. de celeb Miss.). 'Without doubt,'
says the saint, 'the Lord grants all the favors which are asked
of Him in Mass, provided they be those fitting for us; and,
which is a matter of greater wonder, ofttimes He grants that
also which is not demanded of Him, if we, on our part, put
no obstacle in the way.' Whence it may be said that Mass is
the sun of the human race, scattering its splendors over good
and wicked; nor is there a soul so vile on earth who, hearing
holy Mass, do not carry away from it some great good, often
without asking, often without even thinking of it. This is the
lesson conveyed by the famous legend told by St. Antoninus
of two youths, both libertines, who went one day into the
forest, one of them having heard Mass, the other not. Soon,
it is said, there arose a furious tempest, and they heard, amid
thunder and lighting, a voice which cried 'Slay!' and
instantly came a flash which reduced to ashes the one who
had not heard Mass. The other, all terrified, was seeking
escape, when he heard anew the same voice, which repeated
'Slay!' The poor youth expected instant death, when lo! He
heard another voice, which answered, 'I cannot, I cannot;
today he heard, Verbum caro factum est; His Mass will not
let me strike.'” 50

50 The Hidden Treasure Holy Mass

29
What is the continual sacrifice? The prophet Malachias says: “For
from the rising of the sun even to the going down, my name is great
among the Gentiles, and in every place there is sacrifice.” (Malachias
1:11) This picture shows the times when Catholic Mass was celebrated
constantly throughout the whole world, that is the definition of continual
sacrifice.
How can we further confirm that Paul VI is the Antichrist? He took
away the Sacrifice of the Mass and instituted a false mass. Daniel the Old
Testament prophet warns: “And strength was given him against the
continual sacrifice, because of sins: and truth shall be cast down on the
ground, and he shall do and shall prosper.” (Daniel 8:12) Daniel again
admonishes us by saying: “The continual sacrifice shall be taken away,
and the abomination unto desolation shall be set up.” (Daniel 12:11)
According to St. Matthew: “When therefore you shall see the abomination

30
of desolation, which was spoken of by Daniel the prophet, standing in the
holy place: he that readeth let him understand.” (Matthew 24:15)
Cardinal Henry Manning writing his treatise, Present Crisis of the
Holy See clearly states: “The holy Fathers who have written upon the
subject of Antichrist, and of these prophecies of Daniel, without a single
exception, as far as I know, and they are the Fathers both of the East and
of the West, the Greek and the Latin Church—all of them unanimously,—
say that in the latter end of the world, during the reign of Antichrist, the
holy sacrifice of the altar will cease.”
According to the Council of Trent, when the Fathers of the Church
are in unanimous opinion they are infallible. We must follow the syllogism
that the unanimous opinion of the Fathers is interpreted implicitly. Lateran
Council (Denzinger 270): “If anyone in word or mind does not properly
and truly confess according to the holy Fathers all even to the last portion
that has been handed down and preached in the holy, Catholic, and
apostolic Church of God, and likewise by the holy Fathers and the five
venerable universal Councils, let him be condemned.”
How long we have been without the Mass? The old prophet tells
us: “For the children of Israel shall sit many days without king, and
without prince, and without sacrifice, and without altar.” (Osee 3:4) We
did not have a king, a pope, for nearly 32 years. We do not have a prince,
a bishop. We do not have a sacrifice, meaning The Tridentine Mass. The
Tridentine Mass has been gone for more than 50 years. We do not have an
altar, a Church, for the Tridentine Mass. How long can we live without
food? I dare not say anyone can live 50 years without food.

“The followers of Antichrist will be marked with a character


in intimation of the sign that St. John saw upon the
foreheads of the servants of God. This indicates that
Antichrist and his prophet will introduce ceremonies to
imitate the Sacraments of the Church. In fact there will be a
complete organization – a church of Satan set up in
opposition to the Church of Christ. Satan will assume the
part of God the father; Antichrist will be honored as Savior,
and his prophet will usurp the role of the Pope. Their
ceremonies will counterfeit the Sacraments and their works
of magic be heralded as miracles.” 51

51 The Apocalypse of St. John

31
St. Thomas Aquinas writes, “St. Augustine says that Antichrist
with his adherents will form a church just as Christ and His followers are
a Church.”52 With the advent of Vatican II, the apostate Catholics
continued to follow the schism of Antichrist (Paul VI). (II Thessalonians
2:3) According to the doctrine which Antichrist put down, he instituted
new Sacraments. They named their Sacraments as the following: Baptism,
Eucharist, Penance and Reconciliation, Confirmation, Matrimony, Holy
Orders, Anointing of the Sick. The Sacraments instituted by Christ for the
One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church are called the following,
Baptism, Holy Eucharist, Penance, Confirmation, Marriage, Holy Orders,
Extreme Unction. As one can see they bear a similar resemblance to that
of Christ, the latter though confers grace, the former do not. Antichrist
cannot institute new Sacraments that issue grace. He however can
replicate the Sacraments for the destruction of souls by making them
sacrilegious in the eyes of God. And that is exactly what he did. The
following statement is their canon law according to the church of
Antichrist which is commonly referred to as the Novus Ordo Church.
Novus Ordo for those that are not familiar with that term, means New
Order. They replaced the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass with the Novus Ordo
mass. Below is a scanned picture showing you in their own words that
they changed the rites of the Sacraments. By changing the essential parts
in the rites of the Sacraments, according to Sacramental Theology, makes
the Sacrament invalid and if performed sacrilegious.

“Following is a declaration regarding the meaning to be


given to approval of translation of formulae of sacramenta.
The liturgical renewal effected in accord with the
Constitution of Vatican II, introduced certain changes also
in the formulae pertained to the very essence of the rites of
the Sacraments. These new words, just like the other words,
must be so translated into the vernacular languages 53 that

53 Pope Pius VI condemned the following Jansenist proposition (DZ 1533): “The
proposition of the synod of Pistoia by which it shows itself eager to remove the cause
through which, in part, there has been introduced a forgetfulness of the principles
relating to the order of the liturgy, 'by recalling the liturgy to a greater simplicity of
rites, by expressing it in the vernacular language, by uttering it in a loud voice'; as if
the present order of the liturgy, received and approved by the Church, had emanated
in some part from the forgetfulness of the principles by which is should be regulated,

the original meaning be expressed according to the specific
character of the languages. Out of this provision have
arisen some difficulties which are are coming to light when
those translations are being sent by the episcopal
conferences for the approval of the Apostolic See. In these
circumstances, the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine of
the Faith again calls to mind that it is necessary that the
translation of the formulate which are essential in the rites
of the Sacraments should faithfully render the original
meaning of the typical Latin text.” 54

Our Lady at Fatima told us: “Russia will spread her errors
throughout the world.” We are told however that “the spiritual man
judgeth all things.” (I Corinthians 2:15) Many believe that Russia will
spread Communism over the world, true some countries did adopt
Communism. When the Communists took over Russia in 1917, they called
it the “October Revolution”. Russia was still on the Julian calendar. 55 The
Communist revolt actually occurred in November on the Gregorian
calendar. Mary appeared the last time on October 13, 1917 according to
the Gregorian Calendar. Therefore Mary appeared one month before the
communist revolution in Russia. When Mary said that Russia will spread
her errors, it could not have been Communism, for Communism had not
conquered in October on the Gregorian calendar when Mary appeared.
Therefore we must take Communism out of the equation. What then does
it mean when Our Lady at Fatima states: “Russia will spread her errors
throughout the world”? What is the Greek Russian Orthodox church

it.” The Council of Trent: “If anyone says that the rite of the Roman Church,
according to which a part of the canon and the words of consecration are said in a low
tone, is to be condemned, or that the Mass ought to be celebrated in the vernacular
only, or that water should not be mixed with wine that is to be offered in the chalice
because it is contrary to the institution of Christ: let him be anathema.” (DZ 956)
54 The Canon Law Digest Volume VIII
55 The Julian calendar named after Julius Caesar is just like the Gregorian (Ours) with
one big difference. By the seventeenth century the Julian Calendar was off ten days.
Pope Gregory XIII ordered the revision to fix the calendar. “No other act of Gregory
XIII has gained for him a more lasting fame than his reform of the Julian calendar
which was completed and introduced into most Catholic countries in 1578. Closely
connected with the reform of the calendar is the emendation of the Roman
martyrology which was ordered by Gregory XIII in the autumn of 1580.” (Catholic
Encyclopedia) The Protestants and Greek Orthodox rejected it. They retained the
Julian Calendar, some until the twentieth century.

known by? The schism!

“At the request of the Emperor Constantine Monomachus,


who earnestly desired peace, Pope St. Leo IX sent three
legates to Constantinople, but Cerularius obstinately refused
to receive them. Thereupon they laid the document
containing his excommunication on the altar of St. Sophia in
the presence of the clergy and the people with the words 'Let
God be the Judge,' and immediately left the city. It was the
16th of July 1054. All attempts made in the later times by
Popes and Emperors, and Councils to reunite the East and
West were frustrated by the incurable narrow-minded hatred
of the Eastern bishops, clergy, and people.” 56

“Be watchful and strengthen the things that remain, which are ready to die.

56 Church History: A Complete History Of The Catholic Church To 1940

34
For I find not thy works full before my God.” (Apocalypse 3:2) Strengthen
the things that remain, what does that mean? “Therefore, brethren, stand
fast; and hold the traditions which you have learned, whether by word, or
by our epistle.” (II Thessalonians 2:14) The only Vatican Council (1870)
defined the dogma, Papal Infallibility and condemned many other heretical
errors.57 In addition, Pope Pius IX pronounced the Immaculate Conception
as dogma as well in 1854. The faith and interior life of Catholics before
the schism is what needed to be strengthen!58 St. Paul wrote: “Let no man
deceive you by any means: for unless there come a revolt first, and the
57 Atheism, materialism, rationalism, and pantheism, were the heresies of their day.
58 “Quite recently, on 20th February 1959, an important Catholic weekly, La France
catholique, published an article by Maria Winowska, generally considered to be one
of the most lucid thinkers of our time, entitled The Third Temptation. The title refers
to Christ's temptation in the wilderness, when the Devil offered Him all the kingdoms
of the earth: 'All shall be thine, if thou wilt fall down before me and worship!' Maria
Winowska introduces a young Hindu, who has just been baptized. Together they go
up to Montmartre. Before their eyes was spread the vast, magnificent spectacle of
Paris. The young Hindu burst out: 'Why don't you live according to your faith? The
Gospel is clear: in the first place, prayer, in the first place, wisdom, in the first place,
faith, in the first place charity,. It's all there on paper, but in practice?'
“Maria Winowska replied: 'You are right, but all the same, there are people
amongst us, men and women, who do follow the Gospels. That is certain. There are
even a great number of them. And that pleads for us. But there are many weaknesses,
deficiencies, and illogicalities.'
“The young Hindu went on: 'European Christians, for the most part, live as if
they had no faith. I don't mean that they haven't any, but they certainly conceal the
fact.' And he continued, relentlessly: 'I have met priests who talked to me of pastoral
techniques, of methods, of adaptations, of the press, cinema and television. They are
certainly good priests, but why don't they say what is essential? For us, wisdom is
much more than that, more than anything else in the world. What proportion is there
between Creator and the created?'
“Naturally Maria Winowska protested that we could not judge the clergy
from a superficial contact. One cannot accuse them of activism without knowing the
whole of their inner life. We have already two 'revolutions' in religious matters in the
past fifty years; a liturgical revolution which is far from having borne its full fruit, and
a biblical revolution which is only just beginning. We have now to achieve a mystical
revolution which will respond to the justified longing of Maria Winowska and our
young Hindu.
“The great temptation for Christians of our time, and no petty temptation at
that, but the most widespread, general and dangerous of temptations, is that of
preferring things to God. The young Hindu maintained that he had tried to test the
Christians he had met, by the test used by the Devil in the wilderness.
“'Do you know,' he said, 'that there were very few who would not have
agreed to make a little bow, perhaps just a little click of the heels, to a tempter
offering them the kingdoms of the world. They would say: 'If one got all that, it would

man of sin be revealed the son of perdition.” (II Thessalonians 2:3) The
Latin translation of this verse is the following. “Ne quis vos seducat ullo
modo; quoniam nisi veniret discessio primum, et revelatus fuerit homo
peccati filius perditionis.” (II Thessalonicenses 2:3) 59 When we look at the
Latin word discessio,60 it means: “A going away, departure, to go asunder,
part, separate.” This word, discessio, would more closely signify schism
instead of revolt. Let us rephrase it in English. “Let no man deceive you
by any means: for unless there come a schism first, and the man of sin be
revealed the son of perdition.” (II Thessalonians 2:3) We can now seen a
theme of schism written within Holy Scripture and the apparitions at
Fatima are both in concordance with each other.
The schism that we are eluding to, from the writing of St. Paul, is
what many people call Vatican II. 61 The schism began in 1958 with the
advent of John XXIII-II. John XXIII-II named himself after an antipope
from the Western Schism on purpose. The Western Schism occurred in
1378-1417. The definition of antipope is “One claiming to be pope.” 62
Why then did John XXIII-II take the name of an antipope from the 14 th
and 15th century? Lets make a small time line to keep things straight.

61 Vatican II is what many non Catholics to believe to be a council of the Church. This is
however false, for it taught contrary to the teachings of the Church (emphasis: heresy)
therefore it cannot be a council. In support of that, John XXIII-II was a modernist
when he summoned Vatican II. Modernists are non Catholics, therefore under canon
222, a council was never truly convoked nor are the dogma proclaimed at this so
called council valid orthodox doctrine.

Let us remember that Vatican II, the schism, came in 1962 and Paul
VI was elected in 1963. This fulfills the line from Holy Scripture “for
unless there come a schism first, and the man of sin be revealed the son of
perdition.” (II Thessalonians 2:3) We must follow the syllogism then that
Paul VI, is the Son of Perdition. The Son of Perdition is just another term
for Antichrist. Just as we have multiple titles for the Pope. The Pope could
be called Bishop of Rome, Vicar of Christ, Prince of Peace etc. We must
note similarities in history that happened at Vatican II and the Arian
heresy. The Church suffered dearly when the Arian heresy was spreading.
By reading history, the Arian heresy lasted roughly between the Council of
Nicea and that of the Second General Council of Constantinople which
was from 325-380 A.D. There are a few things that must be noted:

“In 355 a council convoked by the Emperor (Constantius) at


Milan and completely dominated by him condemned St.
Athanasius and agreed to receive the Arians into the Church.
Pope Liberius, Hosius of Cordova, Eusebius of Vercelli,
Lucifer of Cagliari (in Sardinia) and Dionysius of Milan,
who refused to comply with the imperial command, were
exiled. Hilary of Poitiers, who called the council 'a
synagogue of the malignant,' was scourged and then
banished to Phrygia, where he wrote his profound work On
the Trinity in the Twelve Books, which has gained for him
the title of Father and Doctor of the Church. An antipope

63 “And then that wicked one shall be revealed whom the Lord Jesus shall kill with the
spirit of His mouth; and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming, him.” (II
Thessalonians 2:8) This line is referring to Antichrist. The spirit of His mouth is found
in Apocalypse 19:21. “And out of his mouth proceedeth a sharp two edged sword.”
(Apocalypse 19:21) A heart attack is a sudden death, medically speaking. We must
then conclude that Christ killed Antichrist with His sword for Antichrist died a sudden
death, as by a sword. Those who are pierced in the heart, I would suspect, would not
last very long. Medically speaking a sword would cause instant death.

was set up in Rome.” 64

“At Seleucia the majority of the Bishops signed it (Homoean


Creed) without much discussion; at Rimini 320 out of 400 at
first declared their adherence to the Nicene Creed (Catholic
Profession of Faith), but all were subsequently forced by
threats of imprisonment and exile to sign the Semi-Arian
(heretical) formula. The formula was then sent to all the
bishops of the Empire, and only a few refused to accept it. It
was the time of the deepest humiliation of the Church; the
time of which St. Jerome wrote: 'The world groaned and was
astonished to find itself Arian.'” 65

“St. Gregory of Nazianzus had already been consecrated


bishop of Sasima in Cappadocia by St. Basil, but he had
never taken possession of his See. When he accepted the
invitation to Constantinople, there was a mere handful of
Catholics left in that bulwark of Arianism. 'The city,' says St.
Gregory of Nazianzus in one of his poems, 'had passed
through the death of infidelity; there was left but one last
breath of life.' He established himself in a small private
house, which he turned into a place of worship, and called it
the Anastasia - The Resurrection. Here he began to preach
the true doctrine. In his sermons, especially in the five so
called Theological Orations, he dwelt continually on the
Catholic doctrine of the Blessed Trinity, which he set forth
with such marvelous clearness and eloquence that he earned
for himself the title of The Theologian and Defender of the
Godhead of the Word. In the short space of less than two
years and in the face of the fiercest opposition from the
Arian populace, he restored the ascendancy of
Catholicism.”66

Let us connect the dots:

✔ Our Time: On January 25, 1959 John XXIII-II (Antipope)
announced a false council Vatican II.
✗ Back Then: The false council called by the Emperor was known as
“a synagogue of the malignant,” by Bishop St. Hilary of Poitiers
who was scourged and then banished to Phrygia. An antipope was
established in Rome.
✔ Our Time: We have had a succession of antipopes till this day
(2009). Only until July 16, 1990 was a pope elected after 31 years.
Pope Michael denounces Vatican II and calls the line of antipopes
Maledictus67 I-V accordingly.
✗ Back Then: Nearly all 400 bishops signed the Semi-Arian
profession of faith. Thus St. Jerome wrote: “The world groaned
and was astonished to find itself Arian.”
✔ Our Time: Almost all bishops present at Vatican II signed the
documents of the Novus Ordo Church. Nearly all Catholics
accepted Vatican II and its doctrinal differences with the Church
and apostatized from the Catholic faith. “For there shall be then
great tribulation, such as hath not been from the beginning of the
world until now, neither shall be. And unless those days had been
shortened, no flesh should be saved: but for the sake of the elect
those days shall be shortened.” (Matthew 24:21-22) There is
currently not a single Catholic bishop in submission to the Pope.
“The world groaned and was astonished to find itself Modernist.”
✗ Back Then: St. Gregory of Nazianzus established himself in a
small private house, which he turned into a place of worship, and
called it the Anastasia - The Resurrection.
✔ Our Time: Pope Michael is established in a small private house.
There is a small place of worship, a private chapel. He named the
seminary building - The Annunciation.
The eminent theologian Cardinal Henry Manning writes about the
Antichrist and the latter days in his treatise: “Then, the Church shall be
scattered, driven into the wilderness, and shall be for a time, as it was in
the beginning, invisible, hidden in catacombs, in dens, in mountains, in
lurking places; for a time it shall be swept, as it were, from the face of the
earth. Such is the universal testimony of the Fathers of the early
centuries.” 68
“And because iniquity hath abounded, the charity of many shall

grow cold.” (Matthew 24:12) The schism occurred because Catholics were
lukewarm if not completely dead to the grace of God, especially to the
inspiration of the Holy Ghost in their lives. The thief, 69 that is Antichrist,
had come and stole their souls away from the thrones which awaited them
in Heaven had they been faithful to God. “And his tail drew the third part
of the stars of Heaven, and cast them to the earth.” (Apocalypse 12:4) Let
us recall to mind that in the center of earth is where Hell is located. 70
When St. John says Satan casts them to earth, means Satan and those he
dragged with him went to Hell. Stars are the souls of the just (if
completely faithful to Christ, they will be Saints) according to the Old
Testament prophet. “But they that are learned shall shine as the brightness
of the firmament: and they that instruct many to justice, as stars for all
eternity.” (Daniel 12:3) And again in the New Testament: “One is the glory
of the sun, another the glory of the moon, and another the glory of the
stars. For star differeth from star in glory.” (I Corinthians 15:41) Those
that are learned according to the commentary on Holy Scripture means,
“Learned in the law of God and true wisdom, which consists in knowing
and loving God.” And those that love God, do penance for their sins and
follow the commandments. “He therefore that shall break one of these
least commandments, and shall so teach men, shall be called the least in
the kingdom of Heaven. But he that shall do and teach, he shall be called
great in the kingdom of Heaven.” (Matthew 5:19)
Now according to the teachings of St. Thomas of Aquinas, 71
69 “Have in mind therefore in what manner thou hast received and heard: and observe,
and do penance. If then thou shalt not watch, I will come to thee as a thief, and thou
shalt not know at what hour I will come to thee. But thou hast a few names in Sardis,
which have not defiled their garments: and they shall walk with me in white, because
they are worthy.” (Apocalypse 3:3-4) “In this way Theologians teach that all evils in
the world (sin excepted) are from God. In all there are two things to be considered,
the guilt and the punishment. Now God is the Author of the punishment which
attaches to sin, but in no way of the guilt.” Heliotropium We can conclude that
Antichrist is the wrath of God, for God is the punisher of sin.
70 Mystical City of God
71 Summa Theoligica, St. Thomas of Aquinas, Secunda Secundæ Partis Q 39. A 1.
“I answer that, As Isidore says (Etym. viii, 3), schism takes its name "from
being a scission of minds," and scission is opposed to unity. Wherefore the sin of
schism is one that is directly and essentially opposed to unity. For in the moral, as in
the physical order, the species is not constituted by that which is accidental. Now, in
the moral order, the essential is that which is intended, and that which results beside
the intention, is, as it were, accidental. Hence the sin of schism is, properly speaking,
a special sin, for the reason that the schismatic intends to sever himself from that
unity which is the effect of charity: because charity unites not only one person to

40
schism is a sin against charity. For where there is unity, there must be
charity. “But above all these things have charity, which is the bond of
perfection.” (Colossians 3:14) St. Augustine confirms this in his writing
De Fide et Symbolo:

“We believe, too, in Holy Church, assuredly the Catholic


Church. For heretics and schismatics call their assemblies
‘churches’. But heretics, since they hold false ideas of God,
violate the faith itself, while schismatics, although
believing what we do, have by their wicked divisions
broken away from fraternal charity. Heretics, then, do not
belong to the Catholic Church-for it loves God; nor do
schismatics-for the Church loves its neighbor.”

We must then acknowledge that charity grew cold. For had they
truly loved their neighbor (emphasis: brothers in Christ), they would have
not fallen away from the Catholic faith. “Charity never falleth away.” (I
Corinthians 13:8) “And because iniquity hath abounded, the charity of
many shall grow cold.” (Matthew 24:12) Iniquity (sin) hath abounded,
charity (divine love) shall grow cold (nonexistent). By St. Augustine's
definition, schismatics do not fulfill the commandment of God, “Thou
shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.” (Matthew 22:38) The Greeks denied
the Holy Ghost as an article of faith in the creed which started their schism
in the tenth and eleventh century. The Holy Ghost is known by divine
love, so to deny the Holy Ghost is to grow cold in divine love and thus
cause a schism. For schism is completely against the virtue of charity

another with the bond of spiritual love, but also the whole Church in unity of spirit.
“Accordingly schismatics properly so called are those who, willfully and
intentionally separate themselves from the unity of the Church; for this is the chief
unity, and the particular unity of several individuals among themselves is subordinate
to the unity of the Church, even as the mutual adaptation of each member of a natural
body is subordinate to the unity of the whole body. Now the unity of the Church
consists in two things; namely, in the mutual connection or communion of the
members of the Church, and again in the subordination of all the members of the
Church to the one head, according to Colossians 2:18-19: 'Puffed up by the sense of
his flesh, and not holding the Head, from which the whole body, by joints and bands,
being supplied with nourishment and compacted, groweth unto the increase of God.'
Now this Head is Christ Himself, Whose viceregent in the Church is the Sovereign
Pontiff. Wherefore schismatics are those who refuse to submit to the Sovereign
Pontiff, and to hold communion with those members of the Church who acknowledge
his supremacy.”

41
(emphasis: divine love). The Greeks were conquered by the Turks
coincidently on the feast of Pentecost in the year 1453 A.D. “The Holy
Ghost,” says St. Gregory the Great, “appeared in the form of a dove and of
fire, because His work is done gently and zealously, and whoever is
wanting in gentleness and zeal is not under His influence. He appeared in
the form of tongues, because He gives to man the gift of speech, by which
He may inflame others to the love of God.” There is nothing more dear to
the Holy Ghost as to help your neighbor stay away from the path of Hell.
“He must know that he who causeth a sinner to be converted from the
error of his way, shall save his soul from death, and shall cover a multitude
of sins.” (James 5:20)
What does it mean when Our Lady spoke to the children that
“various nations will be annihilated”? The word nation is defined as: “A
large body of people, associated with a particular territory, that is
sufficiently conscious of its unity to seek or to possess a government
peculiarly its own.”72 According to a 1959 estimate there were
509,505,000 73 Catholics world wide. Since there are two senses of
interpretation of “various nations will be annihilated”, which are spiritual
and material, we are always going to be interpreting in the spiritual sense.
Annihilation can spiritually mean two things, 1) Apostasy from the
Catholic faith. 2) Dead to grace (emphasis: living in the state of mortal sin,
damnation).
According to the teaching of the Church, when a Catholic
apostatizes from the faith, they completely abandon the Catholic faith, but
they are subject still to the jurisdiction of the Church. 74 They are a dead
branch, lopped from a tree. “If any one abide not in me, he shall be cast
forth as a branch, and shall wither, and they shall gather him up, and cast
him into the fire, and he burneth.” (John 15:6)
But if they are in the state of damnation, that is mortal sin, they are
still in the Church, but bear no fruit. “Abide in me, and I in you. As the
branch cannot bear fruit of itself, unless it abide in the vine, so neither can
you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine: you the branches: he that
abideth in me, and I in him, the same beareth much fruit: for without me
you can do nothing.” (John 15:4-5)
Now is just like in the Arian heresy where nearly all Catholic

bishops accepted the Arian profession. “The city,” says St. Gregory of
Nazianzus, “had passed through the death of infidelity; there was left but
one last breath of life.” The last breath of life for the city of
Constantinople, was St. Gregory of Nazianzus! The Arian heresy made St.
Jerome say, “The world groaned and was astonished to find itself Arian.”
When Vatican II occurred in 1962, Catholics apostatized from the Catholic
faith by accepting the doctrine of Liberalism, among many others. We
could say as well, “The world groaned and was astonished to find itself
Modernist!” A Catholic, Dr. Don Felix Sarda Y Salvany, stated in his book
What is Liberalism, which was published in 1899: “Its [Liberalism]
dreadful doctrine is permeating society to the core; it has become the
modern political creed and threatens us with a second revolution, to turn
the world over once again to paganism. Are there any good Catholics who
do not believe this? Let them but read the signs of the times, not with the
eyes of the world, but by the light of the Faith, which Jesus Christ gave to
them.”75 For at least sixty years the world was poisoned with the error of
Liberalism.76 He describes three types of liberals, the extreme, the
moderate, and the tainted. I am going to quote the Catholic who is
moderately tainted with liberalism.

“But his maxim is, in the Church to live as a Christian,


outside of the Church to live as the world lives, according to
the times in which one is born and not obstinately to swim
against the stream. He dies with the priest on one side, his
infidel literature on the other and imagines that his Creator
75. What is Liberalism?
76 “Liberalism, whether in the doctrinal or practical order, is a sin. In the doctrinal order,
it is heresy, and consequently a mortal sin against faith. In the practical order, it is a
sin against the commandments of God and of the Church, for it virtually transgresses
all commandments. To be more precise; in the doctrinal order, Liberalism strikes at
the very foundations of faith; it is heresy radical and universal, because within it are
comprehended all heresies. In the practical order it is a radical and universal
infraction of the divine law, since it sanctions and authorizes all infractions of that
law. Wherever found, whatever its uniform, Liberalism in its practical action is ever a
systematic warfare upon the Church. Whether it intrigue, whether it legislate, whether
it orate or assassinate, whether it call itself Liberty or Government or the State or
Humanity or Reason or what not, its fundamental characteristic is an uncompromising
opposition to the Church. Liberalism is a world complete in itself; it has its maxims,
its fashions, its art, its literature, its diplomacy, its laws, its conspiracies, its
ambuscades. It is the world of Lucifer, disguised in our times under the name of
Liberalism, in radical opposition and in perpetual warfare against that society
composed of the Children of God, the Church of Jesus Christ. ” What is Liberalism?

will applaud his breadth of mind....The extreme Liberal roars
his Liberalism; the moderate Liberal mouths it; the tainted
Catholic whispers and sighs it. All are bad enough serve the
devil well. Nevertheless, the extreme Liberal overreaches
himself by his violence; the fecundity of the tainted Catholic
is partially sterilized by his hybrid nature; but the moderate
is the real Satanic type; his is the masked evil, which in our
times is the chief cause of the raves of Liberalism.” 77

What did Jesus Christ say again? “But because thou art lukewarm,
and neither cold nor hot, I will begin to vomit thee out of my mouth.”
(Apocalypse 3:16) This typical Catholic in the early twentieth century, is
externally a Christian, that is participate in the Sacraments, namely the
Sacrament of Penance and Holy Eucharist, but outside of the Church, they
forget the Christian faith, and continue to act as they please. As Christ
said: “No man can serve two masters. For either he will hate the one, and
love the other: or he will sustain the one, and despise the other. You cannot
serve God and mammon.” (Matthew 6:24) “I know thy works, that thou
hast the name of being alive: and thou art dead.” (Apocalypse 3:1)
Cardinal Henry Manning writes in his dissertation, Present Crisis
of the Holy See, “The writers of the early ages, the Fathers both of the
East and of the West, foretold that, in the last age of the world, the Church
will have to undergo a third persecution more bitter, more bloody, more
searching, and more fiery than any it has undergone as yet.”
What is more feared than to have an enemy from within the
Church? Pope St. Pius X stated in his encyclical, Pascendi Dominici
Gregis (8 September 1907): “We should act without delay in this matter is
made imperative especially by the fact that the partisans of error are to be
sought not only among the Church's open enemies; but, what is to be most
dreaded and deplored, in her very bosom.”
That is why this persecution is horrible. The world accepts
inconsistency the Church does not. For the Church is the bearer of truth.
For God is truth, therefore, “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty, who
was, and who is, and who is to come.” (Apocalypse 4:8) For if something
was true, it was true in the past, it is true in the present, and in the future it

77 What is Liberalism? Note a moderate liberal is similar to the lukewarm, for they
(moderate liberals) are neither cold nor hot. They are sitting on the fence as the saying
goes. They are neither wholly for Christ nor wholly for Satan. No person can serve two
masters!

44
will remain true. Liberalists deny the doctrine of absolute truth, by their
actions. “But his maxim is, in the Church to live as a Christian, outside of
the Church to live as the world lives, according to the times.” The doctor
continues: “He dies with the priest on one side, his infidel literature on the
other and imagines that his Creator will applaud his breadth of mind.”
Alas, this poor Catholic was vomited from the mouth of Christ, for he
attempted to serve two masters, Liberalism and Catholicism. St. John
Vianney († 1859) was fighting it in his day.78
“For there shall be then great tribulation, such as hath not been
from the beginning of the world until now, neither shall be. And unless
those days had been shortened, no flesh should be saved: but for the sake
of the elect those days shall be shortened.” (Matthew 24:21-22)
“And the brother shall betray his brother unto death.” (Mark 13:12)
Our enemies then are our own brethren, the ones we grew up with. We

78 “How the world has changed since the time of the first Christians. Ah, how large is
the number of those who are no longer Christians except in name and whose conduct
resembles that of the pagans! Ah, you will say to me, that is a bit strong now! We are
not sorry that we are Christians; on the contrary. Tell us what you mean by saying that
we have no more than the name of Christians. Well, my friends, that is very easy. It is
because you are afraid to perform your acts of religion in front of other people and
that, when you are in a house, you do not dare to make the Sign of the Cross before
eating, or else that, in order to make it, you will turn away so that you will not be
noticed and laughed at. It is because, when you hear the Angelus ringing, you pretend
not to have heard it and you do not say it for fear of someone making fun of you; or
again, it is when God puts into your mind the thought of going to confession and you
say: 'Oh, I am not going. They would be laughing at me.' If you behave in this
manner, you cannot say that you are Christians. No, my friends, you are like those
Jews of long ago, rejected or, rather, you have separated yourselves. You are nothing
but apostates. Your language proves it, and your way of living manifests it equally
clearly. Why, my dear brethren, was the name of the apostate given to the Emperor
Julian? It was given to him, you will tell me, because he was a Christian to begin with
but later he lived as the pagans do. Well, then, my good friends, what difference is
there between your conduct and that of the pagans? Do you know what the ordinary
vices of the pagans are? Some, corrupted by the hideous vice of impurity, spew from
their mouths all sorts of abominations; others, given over to gluttony, seek only tasty
food or to fill themselves with wine. The sole preoccupation of their young girls is
with clothes and the desire to look attractive to others. What do you think of conduct
like that, my dear brethren? That is the conduct of people who entertain no hope of
any other life. You are quite right. And what difference is there between your life and
theirs? If you want to speak frankly, you will admit there is none and that as a
consequence, you are Christians in name only. Oh, my God! That You have so few
Christians to imitate You! Alas! If there are so few of them to wear their cross there
will be only few, too, to bless You for all eternity.” Sermons of the Curé of Ars

played together and hung out together. They are the ones that we went to
school with. They are the ones that we confided our deepest secrets and
our greatest trust. “And I passed by, and lo, he was not: and I sought him
and his place was not found.” (Psalms 36:36) He is no longer our brethren,
for he is not a true Christian. Out in public he acts as an enemy of the
Church by engaging in the worldly doctrine of Liberalism, but when he
enters a Church among us he presumes, that we are his brethren, for he
participates in the Holy Sacraments. Did not Christ say, “And a man's
enemies shall be they of his own household”? (Matthew 10:36) Are not
our greatest enemies the ones closest to us, our own brethren?
Pope Pius XII's last words were: “After me, the flood.” He is
signifying to us that we are going to be overwhelmed by our enemy. The
Pope is the father of all Christians. But what happens when our father is
taken away from us and we are only left with our ruthless brethren? For
after the death of Pope Pius XII († 1958) we did not have a pope, a father,
for over three decades. Cardinal Henry Manning writes in his dissertation,
Present Crisis of the Holy See (1861), “Three hundred years the world
strove to cut off the line of the Sovereign Pontiffs; but the flock was never
scattered.” It has roughly been 300 years according to the perspective of
Cardinal Henry Manning, that the world has been trying to scatter the
flock of Christ. For we know, “saith the Lord of hosts: strike the shepherd,
and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn my hand to the little ones.”
(Zacharias 13:7)
That is what happened, our own brethren betrayed us by accepting
the worldly doctrine of Liberalism 79 and promulgating it at Vatican II. The
79 “The first great French Revolution was the inauguration of the reign of Antichrist, of
the denial of Christian faith, of the ruin of the Christian order, of the subversion of the
authority of the Church of God, both in public and private life; and from that day to
this, the principles of turbulence and apostasy have scourged and tormented
kingdoms. At that time they all but entered England; at this time they are striving to
enter again. Be firm and fear not the clamorous talk of those who write to pander to
the public opinion of the day. We know that He in whom we believe is the
“Resurrection and the Life,” the Head of His Church on earth, the sovereignty of
which shall never fail. Whether the Church be clothed with temporal power or not, so
long as the world is Christian, the world will believe in Jesus Christ and in His Vicar.
So long as it believes He has a Vicar upon earth, no king, prince or sovereign
whatsoever will venture to claim him as a subject. (Continuation of footnote 74):
Even at this moment, the unjust and sacrilegious revolution of Italy has not dared to
call him subject, but with pretenses of guarantees, which are mere illusion, has
attempted to throw dust in the eyes of the Christian world and to deceive those who
cannot be deceived. So long as the world is Christian, the Chief Pastor of the
Christian world will remain as he is, subject to no human authority. This is his

46
world desires to strike the shepherd of Christ, that is the successor of St.
Peter, for without a shepherd, the sheep will be helpless. Our own brethren
participated in this action, for they did nothing about correcting their error.
They were amongst us, they participated in the Holy Sacraments as if they
were our brethren, but in the end they were secretly working with the
enemy, the world. “And the brother shall betray his brother unto death.”
(Mark 13:12) “Howl, thou fir tree, for the cedar is fallen, for the mighty
are laid waste: howl, ye oaks of Basan, because the fenced forest is cut
down.” (Zacharias 11:2) The fenced forest is the fold where the flock of
Christ is. “The fenced forest is cut down”, means that the sheep have been
scattered and destroyed. And again: “The wolf catcheth, and scattereth the
sheep.” (John 10:12) 80

temporal power. It is not the possession of a bit of land or of a city; it is independence


of all power on earth; being the delegation of Him who said: 'All power is given to
Me in Heaven and in earth; go, therefore, teach ye all nations.' There may, indeed, be
another alternative; and I acknowledge, looking at the stream of events, the time may
come when nations, governments, and legislatures may cease to believe that Jesus
Christ has a Church upon earth; and in the day when they cease so to believe (and I
am bound to say, their acts led us to think they are not far off from the state of
unbelief), then the world will not be Christian, and then I acknowledge that the Vicar
of Jesus Christ will have no temporal power over the world that has rejected his
Master. Though I am no prophet and no expositor of prophecy and know nothing of
what is to come, save only as the Catholic Church and faith guide me, of this I am
sure from the lips of Jesus Christ, that in those days which we call the latter times,
'kingdom shall rise against kingdom, and nation against nation, and brother betray
brother to death,' and the world shall be in misery it never knew before. When these
things shall come to pass, the tyranny of the world will be well nigh over, and the
despotism of men will no more torment the Church of God; revolutions will no longer
prosper, because there is One at the door who must reign until He puts all enemies
under His feet, and when that time shall come, will come also the 'resurrection of the
just.'” The Fourfold Sovereignty of God,
80 “On the other hand, as St. Augustine often reminds us, the same spiritual
treasure can belong in its entirety to all men, and at the same time to each, without
any disturbance of peace between them. Indeed, the more there are to enjoy them in
common the more completely do we possess them. The same truth, the same virtue,
the same God, can belong to us all in like manner, and yet none of us embarrasses his
fellow – possessors. Such are the inexhaustible riches of the spirit that they can be the
property of all and yet satisfy the desires of each. Indeed, only then do we possess a
truth completely when we teach it to others, when we make others share our
contemplation; only then do we truly love a virtue when we wish others to love it
also; only then do we wholly love God when we desire to make Him loved by all.
Cont. 81 Give money away, or spend it, and it is no longer yours. But give God to
others, and you possess Him more fully for yourself. “We may Go even further and
say that, if we desired only one soul to be deprived of Him, we excluded only one

47
soul- even the soul of one who persecutes and calumniates us-from our own love, then
God Himself would be lost to us....This truth, so simple and yet so sublime, gives rise
to an illuminating principle: it is that whereas material goods, the more they are
sought for their own sake, tend to cause disunion among men, spiritual goods unite
men more closely in proportion as they are more greatly loved. This principle helps us
to appreciate how necessary is the interior life; and, incidentally, it virtually contains
the solution of the social question and of the economic crisis which afflicts the world
today.
“The Gospel puts it very simply: 'Seek ye first the kingdom of God and his
justice, and all these things shall be added unto you.' If the world today is on its death-
bed, it is because it has lost sight of a fundamental truth which for every Christian is
elementary. The profoundest truths of all, and the most vital, are in fact those
elementary verities which, through long meditation and deep thought, have become
the norm of our lives; those truths, in other words, which are the object of our habitual
contemplation. God is now showing men what a great mistake they make when they
try to do without Him, when they regard earthly enjoyment as their highest good, and
thus reverse the whole scale of values, or, as the ancient philosophers put it, the
subordination of ends.
“As though in the hope of compensating for the poor quality of earthly
goods, men are striving to increase their quantity; they are trying to produce as much
as possible in order of material enjoyment. They are constructing machinery with the
object of increasing production at a greater profit. This is the ultimate objective. But
what is the consequence? The surplus cannot be disposed of; it is wasted, and
unemployment is the result. The worker starves in enforced idleness while others die
of surfeit. The present state of the world is called a crisis. But in fact it is more than a
crisis; it is a condition of affairs which, if men only had eyes to see, ought to be
revealing it; it ought to show men that they have sought their last end where it is not
to be found, in earthly enjoyment-instead of God.
“They are seeking happiness in an abundance of material possessions which
are incapable of giving it; possessions which sow discord among those that seek them,
and a greater discord according as they are sought with greater avidity. Do what you
will with these material goods; share them equally, make them the common property
of all. It will be no remedy for the evil; for, so long as earthly possessions retain their
Cont. 81 nature and man retains the nature which is his, he will never find his
happiness in them. The remedy is this, and this only: to consider the one thing
necessary, and to ask God to give us Saints who live only on this thought, Saints who

Chapter 6
Exaltation of Catholicism:
“But at that time shall Michael rise up.” 81

The Old Testament prophet Daniel instructs us: “But at that time
shall Michael rise up, the great prince, who standeth for the children of thy
people: and a time shall come such as never was from the time that nations
began even until that time.” (Daniel 12:1)
“For there shall be then great tribulation, such as hath not been
from the beginning of the world until now, neither shall be.” (Matthew
24:21-22) St. Matthew states, “neither shall be.” That means this
tribulation and apostasy is one of a kind and it will get better. After the
tribulation the Church will be restored to its proper place in society.
“Purge out the old leaven, that you may be a new paste.” (I Corinthians
5:7) What St. Matthew wrote also correlates to, “A time shall come such
as never was from the time that nations began even until that time” from
the Old Testament prophet Daniel.
In the prayer to St. Michael the Archangel, Pope Leo XIII († 1903)
he writes, “In the Holy Place itself, where has been set up the See of the
most holy Peter and the Chair of Truth for the light of the world, they
have raised the throne of their abominable impiety with the iniquitous
design that when the Pastor has been struck the sheep may be scattered.
Arise then, O invincible Prince, bring help against the attacks of the lost
spirits to the people of God, and give them the victory.” We must notice
the sequence of events. 1) When the Pastor has been struck. 2) The sheep
may be scattered. 3) Arise then, O invincible Prince. We know that the
pastor (Pope Pius XII † 1958) was struck. The sheep were scatter by
Vatican II (1962) which lead to the great apostasy. Michael then must
arise. Behold, after 31 years, Michael has arisen to the call! It is Pope
Michael (elected July 16, 1990). I am going to have to quote Apocalypse
to prove the validity biblically speaking of Pope Michael. We are the
Church of Philadelphia.

“And to the angel of the church of Philadelphia, write: These


things saith the Holy One and the true one, he that hath the

times. We need them especially today.” The Three Ways Of The Spiritual Life

key of David; he that openeth, and no man shutteth; shutteth,
and no man openeth: I know thy works. Behold, I have
given before thee a door opened, which no man can shut:
because thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word,
and hast not denied my name. Behold, I will bring of the
synagogue of Satan, who say they are Jews, and are not, but
do lie. Behold, I will make them to come and adore before
thy feet. And they shall know that I have loved thee.
Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I will also
keep thee from the hour of the temptation, which shall come
upon the whole world to try them that dwell upon the earth.
Behold, I come quickly: hold fast that which thou hast, that
no man take thy crown. He that shall overcome, I will make
him a pillar in the temple of my God; and he shall go out no
more; and I will write upon him the name of my God, and
the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which
cometh down out of Heaven from my God, and my new
name.” 82

“And to the angel of the church of Philadelphia, write: These


things saith the Holy One and the true one, he that hath the key of David;
he that openeth, and no man shutteth; shutteth, and no man openeth.”
Before the election of Pope Michael, his name was David Bawden. That
will fulfill that line from Holy Scripture, David. According to Canon 219:
“The Roman Pontiff legitimately elected obtains, from the moment he
accepts the election, the full power of supreme jurisdiction by divine
right.” The 'key of David' is jurisdiction. Those that perform and receive
illicit Sacraments (that is without jurisdiction) commit mortal sin. As
Canon 218 expressly tells us:

“As the successor to the primacy of St. Peter, the Roman


Pontiff has not only the primacy of honor, but also supreme
and full jurisdiction over the universal Church, in matters of
faith and morals as well as in those pertaining to the
discipline and government of the Church throughout the
whole world. This power is episcopal, ordinary and
immediate, and extends over each and every church, and
over each and every pastor as well as over the faithful, and is

82 Apocalypse 3: 7-12

50
independent of all human authority.”

The Roman Pontiff is subject to no one as Pope Eugene IV (†


1477) says: “Where I am there is Christendom,” nor can his jurisdiction
be usurped from him. Due to both of those facts, Pope Michael would
fulfill the line: 'he that openeth, and no man shutteth; shutteth, and no man
openeth'. This previous Canon 218 is also a dogma pronounced by the
Vatican Council (1870).83
“I know thy works. Behold, I have given before thee a door
opened, which no man can shut: because thou hast a little strength, and
hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.” We have little strength
because there are very few Catholics who are submitted to Pope Michael
in comparison to the six and half billion population that is roughly on this
Earth. It also shows, despite our very small numbers, we have kept His
Word, which is the Christian faith.
“Behold, I will bring of the synagogue of Satan, who say they are
Jews, and are not, but do lie.” There are two main oppositions. The
Traditionalists and those that follow the Novus Ordo church. The
Traditionalists were an overreaction to the Novus Ordo liberal ecumenical
modernist heretical church. There is a surprisingly silent majority in the
Traditionalist heretical sect who are Feeneyites. 84 Traditionalists are
seeking a solution outside of the papacy. Traditionalists by their actions

83 “If then any shall say that the Roman pontiff has the office merely of inspection or
direction, and not full and supreme power of jurisdiction over the universal Church,
not only in things which belong to faith and morals, but also in those things which
relate to the discipline and government of the Church spread throughout the world; or
assert that he possesses merely the principal part, and not all the fullness of this
supreme power; or that this power which he enjoys is not ordinary and immediate,
both over each and all the Churches and over each and all the pastors of the faithful;
let him be anathema.” Dogmatic Canons And Decrees
84 “The Supreme Sacred Congregation of the Holy Office examined again the problem
of Father Leonard Feeney and St. Benedict Center. Having studied carefully the
publications issued by the Center, and having considered all the circumstances of this
case, the Sacred Congregation has ordered me to publish, in its entirety, the letter
which the same Congregation sent me on the 8 th of August, 1949. The Supreme
Pontiff, His Holiness, Pope Pius XII, has given full approval to this decision. In due
obedience, therefore, we publish, in its entirety, the Latin text of the letter as received
from the Holy Office with an English translation of the same approved by the Holy
See. Given at Boston, Mass., the 4 th day of September, 1952. Walter J. Furlong,

51
claim that they do not need a pope. Their actions further prove this by not
electing a pope since the 1958 schism. We must conclude they do not seek
the salvation of souls of their neighbors nor themselves, but rather like
hirelings they desire only to fatten their stomachs and flee at the occasion
when danger presents themselves. For according to Pope Boniface VIII in
Unam Sanctam, “Furthermore, we declare, we proclaim, we define that it
is absolutely necessary for salvation that every human creature be subject
to the Roman Pontiff,” if they have not desire to elect a pope, they have no
desire to submit to him. If they have no desire to submit to him, they have
not desire to save their souls. Instead these bishops have usurped the
position of the pope by making their own little kingdoms. They set up
their own chapels and churches to bring in revenue (donations given to
them) to maintain their life style. They have in practice become nothing,
but sacramental bishops. These bishops are nothing but a manufacturing
plant of the Sacraments. They have not come to administer the Sacraments
as a Catholic Bishop would, that is with devotion, respect, and honor of
the seven Sacraments, but impiously profaning them by not having
jurisdiction. On the other side, the Novus Ordo church committed a
schism in doctrine and in practice. For they claim to be Catholic but their
clerics are notorious pedophiles and sodomites. They adhere to liberalism
as many other impious and disgusting heresies. Most of them both clerics
and laity are extremely ignorant. Ignorance is curable, but not willful
ignorance. Willful ignorance cannot be cured until they cease to be willful
in remaining ignorant. When they are contradicted in debate they deny that
they have been contradicted. It is a vicious circle of denial, which will
inevitably lead to their eternal damnation. They say they are Christian as
St. John writes in the Apocalypse, but they do lie.
“Behold, I will make them to come and adore before thy feet. And
they shall know that I have loved thee.” There will come a time that God
will end the reign of this terrible schism. For He will have mercy to the
little ones, that is the elect, the chosen ones of God. “But for the sake of
the elect those days shall be shortened.” (Matthew 24:22) It is for the sake
of the elect that God spared the whole world. For if He did not shorten
those days, “no flesh should be saved.” (Matthew 24:22) Blessed
Tomasuccio de Foligno († 1377) announces: “By about twelve years shall
the millennium have passed when the resplendent mantle of legitimate
power shall emerge from the shadows where it was being kept by the
schism. And beyond harm from the one who is blocking the door of
salvation, for his deceitful schism shall have come to an end.” Now if God

52
shortens the tribulation because of the elect, will He not allow them to be
glorified before the all men who suffered dearly for His sake?
“Humiliation followeth the proud: and glory shall uphold the humble of
spirit.” (Proverbs 29:23) We had no pope for more than three decades. It
was after a small papal election purely consisting of laymen and women
that the vacant papacy was filled. Through the laws of devolution 85 the
seat of the papacy was filled. The clergy has failed to elect the pope, the
faithful had to see to it that they elected a pope. According to Canon 682:
“The laity has the right to receive from the clergy the spiritual good and
especially the necessary means of salvation, according to the rules of
ecclesiastical discipline.” The laity has the right to elect a pope, for it is
necessary for the salvation of all the faithful to be subject to the Roman
Pontiff. “And now, therefore, I say to you, refrain from these men, and let
them alone; for if this council or this work be of men, it will come to
nought; But if it be of God, you cannot overthrow it, lest perhaps you be
found even to fight against God.” (Acts Of Apostles 5:38-39) And
according to Canon 682 the clergy has failed in their duty to God and their
neighbor in supplying the necessary spiritual good, the Roman Pontiff.
The laity therefore had to supply the Church a Head, because the Church
is a perfect society for it is divinely instituted by Christ Himself. 86

85 Devolution: When a patron has failed to exercise, or has exercised improperly, his
right of presentation to a benefice, the right is transferred, for that occasion only.
86 Summa Theologica, St. Thomas of Aquinas, Prima Secundæ Partis, Q. 91 A. 1: “I
answer, that a law is nothing else but a dictate of practical reason emanating from the
ruler who governs a perfect community.”

Satis Cognitum Leo XIII: “For this reason we find it called in Holy Writ by names
indicating a perfect society. It is spoken of as the House of God, the city placed upon
the mountain to which all nations must come. But it is also the fold presided over by
one Shepherd, and into which all Christ's sheep must betake themselves. Yea, it is
called the kingdom which God has raised up and which will stand for ever. Finally it
is the body of Christ-that is, of course, His mystical body, but a body living and duly
organized and composed of many members; members indeed which have not all the
same functions, but which, united one to the other, are kept bound together by the
guidance and authority of the head. Indeed no true and perfect human society can be
conceived which is not governed by some supreme authority.”

Mystici Roporise, Pope Pius XII: “Hence, this word in its correct signification gives
us to understand that the Church, a perfect society of its kind, is not made up of
merely moral and juridical elements and principles. It is far superior to all other
human societies; it surpasses them as grace surpasses nature, as things immortal are
above all those that perish.”

53
Therefore a perfect society, will always have a solution to the problems
her own apostate children caused when abandoning her.

“A Council acting independently of the vicar of Christ is


unthinkable in the constitution of the Church. Such
assemblies have only taken place in times of great
constitutional disturbances, when either there was no pope
or the rightful pope was indistinguishable from anti-popes.
In such abnormal times, the safety of the Church becomes
the supreme law, and the first duty of the flock is to find a
new shepherd, under whose direction the existing evils may
be remedied.” 87

Pope Pius XII († 1939) stated: “The world is on the verge of a


frightful abyss; men must prepare themselves for suffering such as
mankind has never seen.”88 What kind of suffering is worse than not
having an Roman Pontiff for more than three decades? Where has that
happened before in Church history? What is worse then not being able to
save your soul because your pastors, spiritual fathers, refuse to nurse and
take care of their spiritual children? The Novus Ordo adherents,
Traditionalists, apostates, and infidels will 'come and adore' us before our
feet because they must become subject to us if they wish to save their
souls. “Furthermore, we declare, we proclaim, we define that it is
absolutely necessary for salvation that every human creature be subject to
the Roman Pontiff.”89 They must admit we are in the light, that is the truth.
They must admit they were in darkness, that is the bitterness of error and
sin. They also must renounce and ask forgiveness for their errors, their
slanders, their blasphemes, their calumnies, if they desire to receive the
eternal truths of the Christian faith. This will cause them much suffering
for they have accustomed themselves to boasting of their proud, vain,
foolish, false beliefs and afflict the just day and night. If they do not
comply, God will cast them out before us. “The accuser of our brethren is
cast forth, who accused them before our God day and night.” (Apocalypse
12:10)

“And a great sign appeared in Heaven: A woman 90 clothed
with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a
crown of twelve stars: And being with child, she cried
travailing in birth, and was in pain to be delivered. And she
brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with
an iron rod: and her son was taken up to God, and to his
throne.” (Apocalypse 12:1-2,5)

Who is this man child who was to rule all nations with an iron rod?
It is the Pope. A papal election is binding on all souls. A papal election
therefore is the rod that the Pope rules all nations with. All souls must
believe and accept that Pope Michael's papal election as valid. “He that
spareth the rod hateth his son: but he that loveth him correcteth him
betimes.” (Proverbs 13:24) Since the Pope is the spiritual father of all
Christians he uses the rod to correct his children in all things.

“If then any shall say that the Roman pontiff has the office
merely of inspection or direction, and not full and supreme
power of jurisdiction over the universal Church, not only in
things which belong to faith and morals, but also in those
things which relate to the discipline and government of the
Church spread throughout the world; or assert that he
possesses merely the principal part, and not all the fullness
of this supreme power; or that this power which he enjoys is
not ordinary and immediate, both over each and all the
Churches and over each and all the pastors of the faithful; let
him be anathema.” 91

“Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I will also keep
thee from the hour of the temptation, which shall come upon the whole
world to try them that dwell upon the earth.” We know that this is the
worst time in mankind's history. Listen to Pope Pius XI († 1939): “These
are the worse days in the history of mankind since the deluge. The time is

ripe for a supernatural intervention.” Let us now listen to Venerable
Louis of Granada:

“Nor should we be disturbed if the number of those who are


lost is greater than the number of those who will be saved,
for St. John tells us that countless souls will be saved and
they will take with them to Heaven those who have followed
their example and done penance for their sins. Hence, it is a
source of greater glory to those who are saved if the number
of the condemned is greater, because it was the fortunate lot
of the former to win Heaven in spite of the fact that they
lived in the midst of so many evil men. Moreover, the very
condemnation of sinners will redound to the glory of divine
justice, which leaves no sin unpunished, and it will redound
likewise to the greater consolation and happiness of the
blessed who have escaped such a terrible fate.” 93

It is for the greater glory of God that we, the elect,94 should be
spared amongst the godless and impious. Remember it is for the greater
glory of God that Lot and his family was spared from the destruction of
Sodom. This shows that numbers does not prove truthfulness of a matter.
It was through the virtuous life of Lot's family that they were spared. If
they have the true faith, then they will be lead to Heaven for the truth by
nature is spiritual and thus makes us realize our spiritual end, namely God.
If the whole world said that 1+1=3 and every person accepted the
proposition except one person; that one person who refuses to accept a
falsehood (1+1=3) for the truth (1+1=2) is still right and correct. It does
not matter what the nearly seven billion other people on this earth believe
that 1+1=3.

“Truth is not democratic, it does not depend upon a majority


vote. The whole world can be wrong and one man, opposing
its opinion and belief, can be right. Christian intolerance
seemed intolerable to the tolerant pagans. So the tolerant
pagans proceeded to kill the intolerant Christians...only to

find that with each new persecution the number of Christians
increased instead of decreasing. If on the other hand
Christians had been 'tolerant,' they would have been merely
one more sect in the pagan world.” 95

Why should it surprise us that there are less than fifty Christians on
this earth?

“The Church is of ancient birth: since Saints have been so


called, the Church hath been on earth. At one time the
Church was in Abel only, and he was fought against by his
wicked and lost brother Cain. At one time the Church was in
Enoch alone: and he was translated from the unrighteous. At
one time the Church was in the house of Noah alone, and
endured all who perished by the flood, and the ark alone
swam upon the waves, and escaped to shore. At one time the
Church was in Abraham alone, and we know what he
endured from the wicked. The Church was in his brother's
son, Lot, alone, and in his house, in Sodom, and he endured
the iniquities and perversities of Sodom, until God freed him
from amidst them.” 96

“He that shall overcome, I will make him a pillar in the temple of
my God; and he shall go out no more; and I will write upon him the name
of my God, and the name of the city of my God, the new Jerusalem, which
cometh down out of Heaven from my God, and my new name.” In these
lines, there is one part that is dicey. It seems to imply implicitly that those
that are with the Church before the temptation that will come upon the
world, seemed to have obtained the grace of final perseverance. Although
the Council of Trent says that we cannot merit the grace of final
perseverance. But what we do know, when St. John writes: “my new
name” is the name Michael. In honor of the tradition of Jesus changing the
name of Peter from Simon, the Popes have followed suit for over a
millennium. The name Michael has never been in the line of the Papacy
before. Pope Michael, therefore, fulfills New Testament prophesy.

“The last discourse of Pius XII is a dark vision, almost an

95 Founded on a Rock
96 Saint Augustine

57
apocalyptic prophesy about the Church and the world, he
talks about himself as lost wayfarer, submerged in shade,
shade almost of death. He confides to be in the middle of the
night, 'The humanity' he says, 'doesn't have the strength to
remove the tombstone manufactured by itself.' And he
concludes with a supplication: 'Come, my Lord, send your
angel and illuminate our night as the day.'” 97

I am going to summarize a few of points we have covered that are


fulfilled in Holy Scripture:
1. The Antichrist has come. (Apocalypse 13:18)
2. There was a schism. (II Thessalonians 2:3)
3. The Mass was taken away. (Daniel 8:11-12)
4. The flock was scattered. (Daniel 12:7)
5. The Church was reduced to a handful. (Isaias 10:19)
6. Michael arose during the Greatest Tribulation. (Daniel 12:1)

I have covered biblically the New Testament about Pope Michael


and his fulfillment of prophesy. Now I am going to go to the Old
Testament, to further hammer the nail into the coffin.
“And after this the children of Israel shall return, and shall seek the
Lord their God, and David their king: and they shall fear the Lord, and His
goodness in the last days.” (Osee 3:5) There are two things that I must
bring to light. 1) The children of Israel shall return. 2) David their king.
The children of Israel is interpreted as the Church by theologians. “David
their king”, evidently Pope Michael's name prior to taking the papacy, is
David Bawden. “David their king”, a king is normally at the top of the
pole of power, so thus the Papacy in the Catholic Church is the highest
office one can have, and the Pope is judged by no one except God.
“In that day I will raise up the tabernacle of David, that is fallen:
and I will close up the breaches of the walls thereof, and repair what was
fallen: and I will rebuild it as in the days of old. Behold the days come,
saith the Lord, when the ploughman shall overtake the reaper and the
treader of grapes him that soweth seed: and the mountains shall drop
sweetness, and every hill shall be tilled.” (Amos 9:11,13) Let us break this
down into parts. 1) Tabernacle98 of David, that is fallen 2) Repair what

was fallen: and I will rebuild it as in the days of old. 3) Behold the days
come.

“David, as he had done when only a simple shepherd boy,


composed Psalms and Canticles in honor of the Most High,
and conducted himself in all things according to the holy
will of God. Wherefore the Lord blessed him, and not only
favored all his undertakings, but promised him that one of
his descendants should rule the whole world, and sit upon a
throne more lasting than the Heavens.” 99

What does it mean when it says, “the tabernacle of David, that is


fallen.” The definition of tabernacle is where the Blessed Sacrament is
reserved. Now when it says, “of David” God prophesied that Christ would
come from the line of David. “And when thy days shall be fulfilled, and
thou shalt sleep with thy fathers, I will raise up thy seed after thee, which
shall proceed out of thy bowels, and I will establish His kingdom. He shall
build a house to my name, and I will establish the throne of His kingdom
for ever.” (II Kings 7:12-13) It is through David that Christ was to
establish the Heavenly Jerusalem, His kingdom and Church. The line “the
tabernacle of David, that is fallen” from Holy Scripture means that the
Mass was taken away. For the tabernacle by its definition signifies the
dwelling of the Holy Eucharist (Christ), the line “of David” is from the
line which Christ is born from, and being fallen, means taken away. We
move onto the quote, “Repair what was fallen: and I will rebuild it as in
the days of old.”

Abbey Church of Cluny (Tenth Century)

The Churches physically themselves have fallen into the hands of the
enemies (apostates) and non Catholics. Many of them have been
destroyed. Once beautiful Churches as the abbey church of Cluny are now
gone. But however, we are going to have churches, one day which God
ordains in His providence, such as the abbey church of Cluny, so the
worship of God, sacrifice of Mass, can be duly offered to Him and honor
Him.
“Behold the days come, saith the Lord, when the ploughman shall
overtake the reaper and the treader of grapes him that soweth seed: and the
mountains shall drop sweetness, and every hill shall be tilled.” This is a
signification of the universal conversion predicted by the Fathers of the
Church.

“All the holy Fathers agree that after the death of Antichrist
(emphasis: August 6, 1978) the whole world will be
converted, and although some of them assert that the world
will last but a few days after his death, while others say a
few months, some authorities insist that it will continue to
exist many years after. St. Catherine of Sienna, St. Vincent
Ferrer, St. Francis of Paula, and a number of other Saints

60
have predicted this ultimate universal conversion.” 100

The universal conversion is predicted in the Bible. “And he laid


hold on the dragon the old serpent, which is the devil and Satan, and
bound him for a thousand years.” (Apocalypse 20:2) The number of years
should not be taken literally, for it was condemned in the reign of Pope
Pius XII. 101 But what should be understood by the amount of years that it
will last for a notable time as Our Lady said back in 1917: “In the end, My
Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to
me, and a certain period of peace will be granted to the world.” I will
expand on the Universal Conversion in a later chapter.
“And there was left but a small people, and a prince in the house of
David.” (Ecclesiasticus 48:17) Now according to the Old Testament
prophet Daniel he states “But at that time shall Michael rise up, the great
prince, who standeth for the children of thy people” (Daniel 12:1), we can
make the syllogism that Michael is the prince. We can further deduce that
Pope Michael is the great prince. (Daniel 12:1) I already explained to you
the significance of David, that Christ having founded His kingdom and
Church upon earth through him, so too will Christ reestablish His reign
through David, His Vicar of Christ, Pope Michael. “The dethronement of
the Vicar of Christ is the dethronement of the hierarchy of the universal
Church, and the public rejection of the Presence and Reign of Jesus.” 102
We can therefore state, that the enthronement of the Vicar of Christ, that is
Pope Michael, is a public acceptation of the Presence and Reign of Jesus
Christ upon earth. And of course, let us not forget that there are but a small
handful of Catholics under Pope Michael that a child can count the
faithful.
“And when the scattering of the band of the holy people shall be
accomplished, all these things shall be finished.” (Daniel 12:7) The
election of Pope Michael occurred on July 16, 1990 the Feast of Our Lady
of Mount Carmel. How many elected Pope Michael on July 16? Only 6. I

would consider that a small band. Wouldn't you? Isaias discloses to us:
“And they that remain of the trees of his forest shall be so few, that they
shall easily be numbered, and a child shall write them down.” (Isaias
10:19) I think a child can count and write 6 names...Don't you think?

“Something must remain,” says the Antichrist (Paul VI),


“a little flock must remain, however small it may be.” 103

By dismantling the Christian faith, Antichrist has still one more


other objective. According to St. Francis de Paul († 1507): “Antichrist will
restore the power of Islam.” 104 It is been researched that the total
population of Muslims in 2009 is 1.82 billion people. 105 We forgot
however to put the current figure of those who follow the Vatican II
Church.

“Vatican II solemnly declared: 106 'But the plan of salvation


also includes those who acknowledge the Creator, in the first
place amongst whom are the Moslems; these profess to hold
the faith of Abraham, and together with us they adore the
one, merciful God, mankind’s judge on the last day.' Read
this carefully. What Vatican II is saying is that Moslems
worship the true God. Therefore Vatican II is saying that
Allah is God. Vatican II was opened by Angelo Roncalli and
John the Baptist Montini as Antipope Paul VI solemnly
declared this to be the doctrine of their new church. This is
the doctrine of John XXIII-II, Paul VI, John Paul I, John
Paul II the Great Deceiver and Benedict XVI. Many of their
statements bear this fact out, and the last two have publicly
participated in worship in mosques, adoring their god Allah,
which has been proclaimed to be the god of the people of
god. In Lumen Gentium, paragraph 2 the Church is defined
as the people of god. Since the same declaration declares
that Moslems worship the one true God, we must interpret
the people of god to be equivalent to the people of Allah.” 107

Let us not forget too that the Vatican II believes they worship
Allah. This is clearly stated in their documents. The Vatican II Church is
roughly 1.2 billion people in 2008. Now we do some simple math. 1.82
billion Muslims + 1.2 billion people of Allah (Vatican II Church) 108 = 3.02
billion are estimated to be worshiping Allah out of the 6.6 billion total
population of the world. Compare that to the Church in 2009, which
consists of less than fifty Christians. St. Francis de Paul († 1507):

Chapter 7
The Apostles Of The Latter Times:
“Little children, it is the last hour.” 110

St. Louis de Montfort († 1716) talks about the apostles of the latter times:

“The training and education of the great Saints, who will


appear towards the end of the world, is reserved for the
Mother of God. These great Saints will surpass in holiness
the majority of the other Saints like the cedars of Lebanon
surpasses the lowly shrub. These great Saints, full of grace
and zeal, will be chosen in order to oppose the enemies of
God who will appear everywhere. By their word and
example these Saints will bring the whole world to a true
veneration of Mary.” 111

If we consider these apostles of the latter times to be cedars of


Lebanon, then the Saints, like St. Dominic, St. Mary of Egypt, St.
Augustine, St. Francis of Assisi, St. Thomas of Aquinas, St. Bernard, St.
Benedict, St. Louis De Montfort, St. Curé of Ars are but lowly shrub!
What a statement by the Saint himself. Think about what destruction the
Saints of these latter times are going to wreak havoc on the damned
devils!
“If the Devil was so preoccupied with St. Jean Marie
Vianney that he employed every means at his disposal to
divert him from his task, either by exhausting his energy by
insomnia, or by bringing him into such anguish of mind that
he wanted to escape into the wilderness, it is because he
knew the efficacy of the saint's prayers, of his scourgings, of
his ministry to sinners. A woman who showed many signs of
possession, and who seemed to be almost a mouthpiece of
Satan, reproached him one day in front of witnesses:
'How you make me suffer....If there were three more
like you on earth, my kingdom would be destroyed...You
have stolen more than 80,000 souls from me.'
At the time these words were spoken, the Curé d' Ars

110 I John 2:18


111 The Reign of Antichrist

64
had in his parish a missionary whom he had asked to preach
to his flock. Turning to him the Curé remarked reducing
three quarters the figure which all had heard mentioned:
'Did you hear that, my friend? The Devil claims that
between us we are destroying his empire, and we have stolen
20,000 souls from him?'
The Devil had, of course, said quite clearly 80,000,
without mentioning the missionary. The modification was
only another example of the saint's humility.” 112

One of the best writings that I have found on the apostles of the
latter times is from St. Louis de Montfort. 113 He writes that these Saints of

112 Satan in the Modern World


113 “In a word, God wishes that His holy Mother should be at present, more known,
more loved, more honored than she has ever been. This, no doubt, will take place if
the predestinate enter, with the grace and the light of the Holy Ghost, into the interior
and perfect practice which I will disclose to them shortly. Then they will see clearly,
as far as faith allows, that beautiful Star of the Sea. They will arrive happily in the
harbor, following its guidance, in spite of the tempests and the pirates. They will
know the grandeurs of that Queen, and will consecrate themselves entirely to her
service as subjects and slaves of love. They will experience her sweetness and her
maternal goodness, and they will love her tenderly like well-beloved children. They
will know the mercies of which she is full, and the need they have of her help; and
they will have recourse to her in all things, as to their dear advocate and Mediatrix
with Jesus Christ. They will know what is the surest, the easiest, the shortest, and the
most perfect means of going to Jesus Christ; and they will give themselves to Mary,
body and soul, without reserve, that they may thus belong entirely to Jesus Christ. But
who shall those servants, slaves, and children of Mary be? They shall be ministers of
the Lord who, like a burning fire, shall kindle the fire of divine love everywhere.
They shall be “like sharp arrows in the hand of the powerful” Mary to pierce her
enemies. (Psalm 126:4). They shall be sons of Levi, well purified by the fire of great
tribulation, and closely adhering to God (I Corinthians 6:17), who shall carry the gold
of love in their heart, the incense of prayer in their spirit, and the myrrh of
mortification in their body. They shall be everywhere the good odor of Jesus Christ to
the poor and to the little, while at the same time, they shall be an odor of death to the
great, to the rich and to the proud worldlings. They shall be clouds thundering and
flying though the air at the least breath of the Holy Ghost; who, detaching themselves
from everything and troubling themselves about nothing, shall shower forth the rain
of the Word of God and of life eternal. They shall thunder against sin; they shall storm
against the world; they shall strike the devil and his crew; and they shall pierce
through and through, for life or for death, with their two-edged sword of the Word of
God (Ephesians 6:17), all those to whom they shall be sent on the part of the Most
High. They shall be the true apostles of the latter times, to whom the Lord of Hosts
shall give the word and the might to work marvels and to carry off with glory the

the latter times have a great devotion to Mary, ever Immaculate Virgin,
Star of the Sea. The Saint says: “They will arrive happily in the harbor,
following its guidance, in spite of the tempests and the pirates. They will
know the grandeurs of that Queen, and will consecrate themselves entirely
to her service as subjects and slaves of love.” These apostles of the latter
times will arrive happily to Heaven, they will obtain the gift of final
perseverance, from the Mother of Grace. Listen to St. Bonaventure: “Since
the whole divine nature was in the womb of the Virgin, I do not fear to
teach that she has a certain jurisdiction over all the streams of grace; as her
womb was, as it were, an ocean of the divine nature, whence all the
streams of grace must emanate.” Now according to an exorcism made by
St. Dominic on a possessed soul, the devils cried out in terror for the St.
Dominic asked them “who, of all the Saints in Heaven, was the one they
feared the most, and who should therefore be the most loved and revered
by men.” 114 Let us then listen to the reply that the devils gave to St.
Dominic:

“Oh you who are our enemy, our downfall and our
destruction, why have you come from Heaven just to torture
us so grievously? O Advocate of sinners, you who snatch
them from the very jaws of Hell, you who are the very sure

Cont. 114 spoils of His enemies. They shall sleep without gold or silver, and, what is
more, without care, in the midst of the other priests, ecclesiastics, and clerics (Psalm
67:14); and yet they shall have the silvered wings of the dove to go, with the pure
intention of the glory of God and the salvation of souls, wheresoever the Holy Ghost
shall call them. Nor shall they leave behind them, in the places where they have
preached, anything but the gold of charity, which is the fulfillment of the whole law.
(Romans 13:10). In a word, we know that they shall be true disciples of Jesus Christ,
walking in the footsteps of His poverty, humility, concept of the world, charity;
teaching the narrow way of God in pure truth, according to the holy Gospel, and not
according to the maxims of the world; troubling themselves about nothing; not
accepting persons; sparing, fearing and listening to no mortal, however influential he
may be. They shall have in their mouths the two-edged sword of the Word of God.
They shall carry on their shoulders the bloody standard of the Cross, the Crucifix in
their right hand and the Rosary in their left, the sacred Names of Jesus and Mary in
their hearts, and the modesty and mortification of Jesus Christ in their own behavior.
These are the great men who are to come; but Mary is the one who, by order of the
Most High, shall fashion them for the purpose of extending His empire over that of
the impious, the idolaters and the Mahometans. But when and shall this be? God
alone knows. As for us, we have but to hold our tongues, to pray, to sigh and to wait:
'With expectation I have waited.' (Psalm 39:2)” The Secret of the Rosary

66
path to Heaven, must we, in spite of ourselves, tell the
whole truth and confess before everyone who it is who is the
cause of our shame and our ruin? Oh woe unto us, princes of
darkness: Then listen well, you Christians: the Mother of
Jesus Christ is all-powerful and she can save her servants
from falling into Hell. She is the Sun which destroys the
darkness of our wiles and subtlety. It is she who uncovers
our hidden plots, breaks our snares and makes our
temptations useless and ineffectual. We have to say, however
reluctantly, that not a single soul who has really persevered
in her service has ever been damned with us; one single sigh
that she offers to the Blessed Trinity is worth far more than
all the prayers desires and aspirations of all the Saints. We
fear her more than all the other Saints in Heaven together
and we have no success with her faithful servants. Many
Christians who call upon her when they are at the hour of
death and who really ought to be damned according to our
ordinary standards are saved by her intercession. Oh if only
that Mary (it is thus in their fury that they called her) had not
pitted her strength against ours and had not upset our plans,
we should have conquered the Church and should have
destroyed it long before this; and we would have seen to it
that all the Orders in the Church fell into error and disorder.
Now that we are forced to speak we must also tell you this:
nobody who perseveres in saying the Rosary will be
damned, because she obtains for her servants the grace of
true contrition for their sins and by means of this they obtain
God's forgiveness and mercy.” 115

St. Louis de Montfort goes on in his treatise of the apostles of the


latter times: “They will know what is the surest, the easiest, the shortest,
and the most perfect means of going to Jesus Christ; and they will give
themselves to Mary, body and soul, without reserve, that they may thus
belong entirely to Jesus Christ.” Now Venerable Louis of Grenada states in
his Summa of the Christian Life: “It is the common teaching of all the
Saints that the perfection of the Christian life consists in the perfection of
charity.” The quickest way to perfection must be charity. “But above all
these things have charity, which is the bond of perfection.” (Colossians

115 The Secret of the Rosary

67
3:14) Why is Mary, the ever Immaculate Virgin, the easiest means to going
to Jesus? For she is full of charity (divine love). She desires that you and I
become perfect in virtue. Why? Because she loves you. “When Jesus
therefore had seen his mother and the disciple standing whom he loved, he
saith to his mother: Woman, behold thy son. After that, he saith to the
disciple: Behold thy mother. And from that hour, the disciple took her to
his own.” (John 19:26-27)
Jesus said to His mother while hanging on the cross, behold thy
son. Alas she is to be our spiritual mother. She as if said to you: “Can a
woman forget her infant, so as not to have pity on the son of her womb?
And if she should forget, yet will not I forget thee.” (Isaias 49:15) Will this
good Virgin of virgins, ever forget someone who loves her? Never. For as
long as we love her, we will never be despised by her. Let us not forget the
words by St. Bonaventure: “He who neglects her will die in his sins.”
Now St. Louis de Montfort continues in his treatise: “But who
shall those servants, slaves, and children of Mary be? They shall be
ministers of the Lord who, like a burning fire, shall kindle the fire of
divine love everywhere. They shall be 'like sharp arrows in the hand of the
powerful' Mary to pierce her enemies. (Ps. 126:4).” These apostles will
have an ardent charity. Nothing shall terrify these apostles of the latter
times, for they will bear the mark of the Virgin (†), on their foreheads, just
as the servants of the devil, will wear the mark of the beast (666).
(Apocalypse 14:9) For it is written: “I will put enmities between thy seed
and her seed.” (Genesis 3:15) They are the sharp arrows of divine love,
placed at the hands of Mary to strike in the hearts the ones she loves.
Furthermore, St. Louis de Montfort answers his rhetorical
question: “They shall be sons of Levi 116, well purified by the fire of great
tribulation, and closely adhering to God (I Corinthians 6:17), who shall
carry the gold of love in their heart, the incense of prayer in their spirit,
and the myrrh of mortification in their body. They shall be everywhere the
good odor of Jesus Christ to the poor and to the little, while at the same
time, they shall be an odor of death to the great, to the rich and to the
proud wordlings.” According to the definition it says: “the name [Levite]
is used figuratively for a Christian cleric below the order of priest.” We are
currently without Holy Orders. We however we are in submission to Pope

116 Levite: “A descendant of the Jewish patriarch of Levi, the men of whose tribe were
hereditary ministers to the priests of the Tabernacle and Temple; hence the name is
used figuratively for a Christian cleric below the order of priest, especially a
deacon.” A Catholic Dictionary

Michael. All that is required in preaching is jurisdiction, and that comes
directly from the Pope. And the Pope gets jurisdiction directly from Christ.
A speech was given by the Bishop of Grenada at the 22nd Session of the
Council of Trent, he tells us: “When any bishop is elected Supreme
Pontiff, either by cardinals or by the people according to the times, from
whom does he obtain the supreme power of jurisdiction? From Christ, of
course…”117 It is my assumption we will be preaching before we attain
Holy Orders.
St. Louis de Montfort progresses on the theme of sons of Levi by
stating they will be, “well purified by the fire of great tribulation, and
closely adhering to God.” In St. Matthew's Gospel he writes: “For there
shall be then great tribulation, such as hath not been from the beginning of
the world until now, neither shall be.” (Matthew 24:21) What happens then
to those souls that are in tribulation? The Old Testament prophet Daniel
adds: “Many shall be chosen, and made white, and shall be tried as fire.”
(Daniel 12:10) “Silver is tried in the fining-pot and gold in the furnace.”
(Proverbs 27:21) Fining pot and the furnace are the different types of
tribulations, meaning in intensities, by which these sons of Levi will
tried.118
St. Louis de Montfort explains these sons of Levi, “shall carry the
gold of love in their heart, the incense of prayer in their spirit, and the
myrrh of mortification in their body.” These sons of Levi, who may be
seminarians, shall carry the gold of love in their preaching, that is the love
of Jesus Christ and the Blessed Virgin Mary in the hearts. As I have
explain to you earlier the benefits of loving Mary.
“They shall be clouds thundering and flying though the air at the
least breath of the Holy Ghost; who, detaching themselves from
everything and troubling themselves about nothing.” Mid level clouds
according to the University of Illinois definition 119 are composed
primarily of water droplets and ranged from 6,500 to 20,000 feet (2,000 to
6,000 meters). These clouds are so light that air directs their movement.
Now the least breathe of the Holy Ghost when directing these apostles of
the latter times, are so detached from all worldly things are like the clouds,
for they are thousands of feet in the air separated from those worldlings
clinging to the ground. These apostles are troubled about nothing for they

118 It was also through the assistance of the sons of Levi that Moses killed 23,000

have obtained all they ever desired because their minds rests content in the
knowledge of eternal truth. For the Truth is spirit and angelic by nature,
therefore the spirits of the apostles will rise above the slime of the earth
which they were made from, and rest in God. (Genesis 1:26)
“They shall shower forth the rain of the Word of God and of life
eternal. They shall thunder against sin; they shall storm against the world;
they shall strike the devil and his crew; and they shall pierce through and
through, for life or for death, with their two-edged sword of the Word of
God (Ephesians 6:17), all those to whom they shall be sent on the part of
the Most High.” What is lightning? According to the definition given by
Princeton University lightning is an “abrupt electric discharge from cloud
to cloud or from cloud to earth accompanied by the emission of light.” 120
These apostles of the latter times being charged up with zeal for God and
for the salvation of their neighbors will strike the devil, unnoticed, until it
is too late for the devil to react. These apostles shall say, “I saw Satan like
lightning falling from Heaven.” (Luke 10:18)
St. Louis de Montfort instructs us: “the Lord of Hosts shall give
the word and the might to work marvels and to carry off with glory the
spoils of His enemies.” The devil shall cry out in anguish: “How you
make me suffer....You have stolen more than 80,000 souls from me.” But
these apostles, let us remind the readers, are not like the Saints of old, who
were but shrubs compared to these Cedars of Lebanon. “All this is verified
in the cedar of Libanus, which is the stateliest and most majestic tree of
Palestine. It often reaches a height of 100 feet and more, and the girth of
the trunk in old trees may exceed 40 feet.” 121 What is a cedar compared to
but a shrub? How many innumerable souls then will be converted by these
apostles? “With expectation I have waited.” (Psalms 39:2)

The Angelic Pastors:
“He had compassion on them: because they were distressed.” 122

“In the end, My Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father
will consecrate Russia to me, and a certain period of peace will be granted
to the world.” It is through these angelic pastors that peace will be had in
this world. The angelic pastor who will start this reign of peace will be
Pope Michael, for St. Michael battled against Satan and won in Heaven, so
will then Pope Michael, conquer the enemies of Christ, through his
preaching, for he is the Vicar of Christ. “And he shall rule them with a rod
of iron.” (Apocalypse 2:27) It is through these Angelic Pastors that Satan
shall be bound up in Hell according to Holy Scripture: “And he laid hold
on the dragon the old serpent, which is the devil and Satan, and bound him
for a thousand years.” (Apocalypse 20:2) However, we are not to believe
that peace will last one thousand years, for that was condemned under the
reign of Pope Pius XII († 1958).123
It is my opinion, that there will be Popes who take the names of
Raphael, and Gabriel. I am going to make an assumption on the line of the
papacy. It will be Pope Michael (currently reigning), Pope Raphael, and
Pope Gabriel. It is my presumption that these popes will have a deep and
tender devotion to their angel, as did Pope Michael. For he had a devotion
to St. Michael since he was a child.
St. Catherine of Siena († 1380) talks about the Church of the latter
times: “The bride (Church) now all deformed and clothed in rags, will
then gleam with beauty and jewels and crowned with the diadem of all
virtue. All believing nations will rejoice and have such excellent and holy
shepherds, and the unbelieving world, attracted by the glory of the Church,
will be converted to her.” 124 Why would she, the Church, be deformed?
She is deformed by the lukewarmness of souls. What is more disgusting

than an object that would induce you to vomit? “Because thou art
lukewarm I will begin to vomit thee out of my mouth.” (Apocalypse 3:16)
This lukewarmness is foretold of the previous Church Sardis. Remember
Christ said to the Church of Sardis: “ And to the angel of the church of
Sardis, write: I know thy works, that thou hast the name of being alive:
and thou art dead.” (Apocalypse 3:1) But with the Church of Philadelphia,
those under Pope Michael currently, Christ says, “Behold, I will make
them to come and adore before thy feet. And they shall know that I have
loved thee.” (Apocalypse 3:9)
I believe the most accurate prophesy is that of Abbot Merlin
Joachim († 1202).125 I will only take apart some of these sections.

125 The Prophets and Our Times, #97: “A remarkable Pope will be seated on the
pontifical throne, under the special protection of the angels. Holy and full of
gentleness, he shall undo all wrong, he shall recover the states of the Church, and
reunite exiled temporal powers. He shall be revered by all people, and shall recover
the kingdom of Jerusalem. As the only Pastor he shall reunite the Eastern to the
Western Church, and thus only one faith will be in vigor. The sanctity of this
beneficent Pontiff will be so great that the highest potentates shall bow down before
his presence. This holy man shall crush the arrogance of religious schism and heresy.
All men shall return to the primitive Church, and there shall be only one pastor, one
law, one master-humble, modest and fearing God. The true God of the Jews, our Lord
Jesus Christ, will make everything prosper beyond all human hope, because God
alone can and will pour down on the wounds of humanity the oily balm of sweetness.
“The Heavens proclaim the glory of God, and the faithful are in joy and
happiness, because the Lord has vouchsafed to be merciful to them. He shall invite his
elect to the banquet of the Lamb, where melodious canticles and harmonious concerts
will be heard.
“The power of this Pontiff's holiness will be so great as to be able to check
the fury and impetuosity of threatening waves. Mountains shall be lowered before
him, the sea shall be dried up, the dead shall be raised, the churches shall be reopened
and altars erected.
“It should be known that there will be two heads, one in the East, and the
other in the West. This Pope shall break the weapons and scatter the fighting hordes.
He will be the joy of God's elect. This angelic Pope will preach the gospel in every
country. Through his zeal and solicitude the Greek Church shall be forever reunited to
the Catholic Church.
“Before, however, being firmly and solidly established in the Holy See, there
will be innumerable wars and violent conflicts during which the sacred throne shall be
shaken. But through the favor of Divine clemency, moved by the prayers of the
faithful, everything will succeed so well that they shall be able to sing hymns of
thanksgiving to the glory of the Lord.
“This holy Pope shall be both pastor and reformer. Through him the East and
West shall be in everlasting concord. The city of Babylon shall then be the head and
guide of the world. Rome, weakened in temporal power, shall forever preserve her

72
“A remarkable Pope will be seated on the pontifical throne, under
the special protection of the angels.” It is through St. Michael's quick
actions that two thirds of the total amount of angels did not fall from
sanctifying grace. It is through the actions of the Vicar of Christ, Pope
Michael, that the world will be converted to the Catholic faith. “Christ
silent and veiled in the Holy Eucharist and Christ visible speaking to us in
the person of the Pope – these are two objects of Satan's venerable hatred
and rage. And these are also two objects of St. Michael's greatest devotion
and solicitude.” 126 After a nearly a three decade interregnum without
having a Pope, but only antipopes, St. Michael and all the holy angels will
obtain the graces for the Church to have angelic popes. Just as the devils
were permitted to carry out Divine Justice by damnation of souls through
the reign of Antichrist; the angels will be able to carry out Divine Mercy,
and to restore the Church with angelic pastors. And it will be through the
devotion and intercession to angels will this exemplary restoration come.
“According to the great St. Alphonsus Liguori, veneration of the holy
Angels, and particularly of St. Michael, is an outstanding sign of
predestination.” 127
“The sanctity of this beneficent Pontiff will be so great that the
highest potentates shall bow down before his presence. This holy man
shall crush the arrogance of religious schism and heresy. All men shall

spiritual dominion, and shall enjoy great peace. During these happy days the Angelic
Pope shall be able to address to Heaven prayers full of sweetness. The dispersed
nation (Jews) shall also enjoy tranquility. Six and a half years after this time the Pope
will render his soul to God. The end of his days shall arrive in an arid province,
situated between a river and a lake near the mountains...
“When a monster shall appear to thee in the sky, thou shalt find a ready
escape towards the east, and after nine years thou shalt render thy soul to God.
“A man of remarkable sanctity will be his successor in the Pontifical chair.
Through him God will work so many prodigies that all men shall revere him, and no
person will dare to oppose his precepts. He shall not allow the clergy to have many
benefices. He will induce them to live by the tithes and offerings of the faithful. He
shall interdict pomp in dress, and all immorality in dances and songs. He will preach
the gospel in person, and exhort all honest ladies to appear in public without any
ornament of gold or precious stones. After having occupied the Holy See for a long
period of time he shall happily return to the Lord.
“His three immediate successors shall be men of exemplary holiness. One
after the other will be models of virtue, and shall work miracles, confirming the
teaching of their predecessors. Under their government the Church shall spread, and
these Popes shall be called the Angelic Pastors.”

return to the primitive Church, and there shall be only one pastor, one law,
one master-humble, modest and fearing God.” 128 “And he shall rule them
with a rod of iron.” (Apocalypse 19:15) He will rule the faithful by the
example of holiness. The virtue shining forth from this holy pastor will be
like an iron rod crushing the arrogance of all of those who attempt to
overthrow him. He will be so holy that none of them can find a fault
against him. By not finding a fault against this holy pastor, they can not
make an excuse or rationalization to neglect their duty in sanctifying
themselves. “If the priest is a saint (as the saying goes), the people will be
fervent; if the priest is fervent, the people will be pious; if the priest is
pious, the people will at least be decent. But if the priest is only decent, the
people will be godless. The spiritual generation is always one degree less
intense in its life than those who beget it in Christ.” 129 Let us read a part of
the prophesy of Our Lady of Good Fortune:130

“By sending to His Church the Prelate who will restore the
spirit of His priests. Upon this My beloved son, whom My
Divine Son and I love with a predilection, we shall heap
many gifts, of humility of heart, of docility to varying
inspirations, of strength to defend the rights of the Church
and of a heart with which he will, like a new Christ, take
possession of the mightiest of men as of the lowliest,
without scorning the least fortunate among them. With a
wholly divine gentleness he will lead consecrated souls to
the service of God in religious houses without making the
Lord's yoke weigh heavily upon them.”

“He shall be revered by all people, and shall recover the kingdom
of Jerusalem...It should be known that there will be two heads, one in the
East, and the other in the West. This Pope shall break the weapons and
scatter the fighting hordes. He will be the joy of God's elect. This angelic
Pope will preach the gospel in every country. Through his zeal and
solicitude the Greek Church shall be forever reunited to the Catholic
Church.” The main question is how will this angelic pope restore the
128 “The Lord showed me how beautiful the world will be after the awful chastisement.
The people will be like the Christians of the primitive Church.” Abbess Maria

schismatic Greeks with the Church? It is because of his devotion to the
souls in purgatory. The communion of Saints will not just be only a belief
in the creed, but it will be zealously practiced. And through the
intercession of these suffering holy souls will obtain the grace to have the
Church united as it once was before.

“Judas the Machabee also, renowned for his solicitude for


the dead, was visited by apparitions from the other world.
'Nicanor being puffed up with exceeding great pride, sought
to set up a public monument of the victory of Judas. But
Machabeus ever trusted with all hope that God would help
them; and he exhorted his people not to fear the coming of
Gentiles, but to remember the help they had before received
from Heaven, and now to hope for victory from the
Almighty. And speaking to them out of the law and the
prophets and withal putting them in mind of the battles they
had fought before, he made them more cheerful. Then after
he had encouraged them, he showed withal the falsehood of
the Gentiles, and their breach of oaths. So he armed
everyone of them not with defense of shield and spear, but
with very good speeches and exhortations, and told them a
dream worthy to be believed, whereby he rejoiced them all.
Now the vision was in this matter: Onias, who had been high
priest, a good and virtuous man, modest in his looks, gentle
in his manners, and graceful in his speech, and exercised
from a child in all virtues, holding up his hands, prayed for
all the people of the Jews. After this there appeared also
another man, admirable for age and glory, and environed
with great beauty and majesty. Then Onias, answering, said:
This is a lover of his brethren, and of the people of Israel.
This is he that prayeth much for the people, and for all the
holy city, Jeremias, the prophet of God. Wereupon Jeremias
stretched forth his right hand, and gave to Judas a sword of
gold, saying: Take this holy sword a gift from God,
wherewith thou shalt overthrow the adversaries of my
people Israel.' (II Machabees 15: 6-16) This apparition of
two just souls to Judas Machabeus and his victory over the
enemy are regarded by some interpreters of Scripture as
being the reward he received for the twelve thousand

75
drachms of silver he had sent to Jerusalem for sacrifice to be
offered in atonement for the sins of those who had fallen in
battle.” 131

For the Church is one, “But above all these things have charity,
which is the bond of perfection.” (Colossians 3:14) This angelic pope will
conquer the enemies of the Church though the golden sword of charity. He
shall pierce the enemies of Christ with divine love, and they will be
helpless. Just as a sword causes death to the body, the golden sword of
charity will cause death to the spirit of the world in the souls that this pope
shall pierce. After the old man was killed, only then can the new man be
put on. “To put off, according to former conversation, the old man, who is
corrupted according to the desire of error. And be renewed in the spirit of
your mind: And put on the new man, who according to God is created in
justice and holiness of truth.” (Ephesians 4:22-24) And you think that such
a thing is impossible? “St. Bridget heard the souls in Purgatory call to
Heaven, saying in a loud voice, 'O merciful God, reward a hundred fold
the charity of them that by their good works assists us to come from out of
this darkness to the eternal light and to attain to Thy beatific vision.'” 132
Let us remember that schism is a sin against charity. Charity must then be
the solution to fixing the problem between the schismatic Greeks and the
Church!

The Angelic Pastors


The Age of Michael--------The Age of Raphael--------The Age of Gabriel

There will be three distinct periods in the age of the Angelic


pastors. 1) The Age of Michael 2) The Age of Raphael 3) The Age of
Gabriel
The Age of Michael will consist in fighting the devil upon the
Earth and binding Satan for a thousand years in Hell. “And I saw an angel
coming down from Heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit, and a
great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon the old serpent,
which is the devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years.”
(Apocalypse 20:1-2) Since the pope has jurisdiction on earth because
Christ had given him the keys (Matthew 16:19), he is able to bind Satan in
Hell, for Hell is in the center of the earth. Again I refrain you from

131 Charity for the Suffering Souls


132 Charity for the Suffering Souls

76
believing that Satan will be bound exactly one thousand years, for as I
have stated in previous chapters, that Millenarianism cannot be safely
taught. This binding of Satan will bring great spiritual profit for the
interior lives of all the faithful upon the earth. This angelic pastor by
binding Satan in Hell is preparing the soil for good crop of the salvation of
souls. “But he that received the seed upon good ground, is he that heareth
the word, and understandeth, and beareth fruit.” (Matthew 13:23) This is
going to be a prelude for the next angelic pastors. Just as St. Michael cast
Satan out of Heaven, so will Pope Michael and his successors cast Satan
from the hearts of Christians and non Catholics, and allegorically bind
Satan in Hell for only charity (divine love) will reign in the hearts of these
Christians. “Many waters cannot quench charity, neither can the floods
drown it: if a man should give all the substance of his house for love, he
shall despise it as nothing.” (Canticles 8:7)
The Age of Raphael will consist in the angelic pastors leading all
souls of the faithful to the height of the spiritual life. That is why as St.
Louis de Montfort kindly phrases it: “These great Saints will surpass in
holiness the majority of the other Saints like the cedar of Lebanon
surpasses the lowly shrub.” For St. Raphael is the patron saint of
marriage. There are two concepts of marriage, the first is the Sacrament of
Marriage, the second one is mainly forgotten, that is the religious life, a
soul espousing God. When the soul espouses God she is in the seventh
Mansion according to St. Teresa of Avila in her writings on the Interior
Castle:

“But in this Mansion everything is different. Our good God


now desires to remove the scales from the eyes of the soul,
that it may see and understand something of the favor which
He is granting it. First of all the spirit becomes enkindled
and is illumined, as it were, by a cloud of the greatest
brightness. It sees these three Persons, individually, and yet,
by a wonderful kind of knowledge which is given to it, the
soul realizes that most certainly and truly all these three
persons are one Substance and one Power and one
Knowledge and one God alone; so that what we hold by
faith the soul may be said to here to grasp by sight, although
nothing is seen by the eyes, either of the body or of the soul,
for it is no imaginary vision. Here all three Persons

77
communicate Themselves to the soul and speak to the
soul.”133

Last but not the least, the Age of Gabriel will be end of the reign of
the Angelic pastors. Just as St. Gabriel gave good tidings to the Blessed
Virgin Mary for being chosen as the Mother of God. (Luke 1:26-33) These
angelic pastors will give the faithful good tidings that Christ is coming
soon for the second time and that they should haste to prepare themselves
as the five wise virgins did (Matthew 25:2-4), by having enough oil to last
the night. Oil signifies purity. Let not the flame of the purity of your
interior life extinguish! As did the five foolish virgins. “But the five
foolish, having taken their lamps, did not take oil with them.” (Matthew
25:3) It was only after their decision to half heartedly remain pure in heart
that was it already too late for them to enter with the bridegroom. “Now
whilst they went to buy, the bridegroom came: and they that were ready,
went in with him to the marriage, and the door was shut. But at last come
also the other virgins, saying: Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answering
said: Amen I say to you, I know you not.” (Matthew 25:10-12) After death
there is no hope to enter into the kingdom of God. For at the last moment
of your life, you are to make a eternal decision that is going to last for all
eternity, so long as God is God. “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty,
who was, and who is, and who is to come.” (Apocalypse 4:8) These
angelic pastors do not know specifically when Christ is to come a second
time, “but of that day or hour no man knoweth.” (Mark 13:32) These
angelic pastors entreat the flock to be ever diligent and faithful to God.
“Watch ye therefore, because ye know not what hour your Lord will
come.” (Matthew 24:42)

Chapter 9
Marks for the Second Coming of Christ:
“Time shall be no longer.” 134

“There is but one only true Church; and that is so evident


that one possessed of even ordinary good sense cannot
anywise doubt it. A Catholic priest and a Protestant minister
were one day walking together; they chanced to meet a
Jewish rabbi. 'Hold!' said the Protestant minister, laughing,
'we three are of so many different religions; now, which of
us has the true one?' 'I will tell you that,' said the rabbi; 'if
the Messiah is not yet come, it is I; if the Messiah be come,
it is this Catholic priest; but as for you, whether the Messiah
be come or not, you are not in the right way.” 135

What shall it be like when Christ comes a second time? “But yet
the Son of man, when he cometh, shall he find, think you, faith on earth?”
(Luke 18:8) Let us read some lines from Holy Scripture.

“For many seducers are gone out into the world, who
confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh: this is a
seducer and an antichrist. Look to yourselves, that you lose
not the things which you have wrought: but that you may
receive a full reward. Whosoever revolteth, and continueth
not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that
continueth in the doctrine, the same hath both the Father and
the Son.” (II John 1:7-9)

We are going to type the Latin for out for those that can read and
understand, as Christ told us to do. (Matthew 24:15)

“Quoniam multi seductores exierunt in mundum, qui non


confitentur Iesum Christum venisse in carnem: hic est
seductor, et antichristus. Videte vosmetipsos, ne perdatis
quae operati estis: sed ut mercedem plenam accipiatis.
Omnis qui recedit et non permanet in doctrina Christi, Deum

134 Apocalypse 10:6


135 Stories of the Catechist

79
non habet: qui permaet in doctrina, hic et Patrem et Filium
habet.” (II John 1:7-9) 136

We are going to back to the Latin for a specific reason. We are


looking at the word recedit. It's root word is recédere. The definition of it
is: “To fall away, or depart or stray from.” This is another connotation for
schism and apostasy. What we are going to look for after the Church of
Philadelphia and the universal conversion, is a possible schism(s) and or
apostasy, as we have seen in this time. However, the Shepherd (emphasis:
the pope) will not be taken away from them, the future Christians. Our
time was noted as the greatest tribulation, the key to that tribulation was
having no pope for more than three decades (1958-1990). “Strike the
shepherd, and the sheep shall be scattered: and I will turn my hand to the
little ones.” (Zacharias 13:7) To look at the history of what will happen in
the future, we are going to look at the Church of Laodicea, in Apocalypse:

“And to the angel of the church of Laodicea, write: These


things saith the Amen,137 the faithful and true witness, who is
the beginning of the creation of God: I know thy works, that
thou art neither cold, nor hot. I would thou wert cold, or hot.
But because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold, not hot, I
will begin to vomit thee out of my mouth. Because thou
sayest: I am rich, and made wealthy, and have need of
nothing: and knowest not, that thou art wretched, and
miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked. Behold, I stand
at the gate, and knock. If any man shall hear my voice, and
open to me the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with
him, and he with me. To him that shall overcome, I will give
to sit with me in my throne: as I also have overcome, and
am set down with my Father in his throne. He that hath an
ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches.”
(Apocalypse 3:14-21)

“I know thy works, that thou art neither cold, nor hot. I would thou
wert cold, or hot. But because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold, not

137 Catholic Commentary: “The Amen,” That is, the true one, the Truth itself; the Word
and Son of God. The beginning-- that is, the principle, the source, and the efficient
cause of the whole creation.

80
hot, I will begin to vomit thee out of my mouth.” This is the same problem
that the Church of Sardis had. It was so bad that God punished them with
the Antichrist who subsequently brought in the greatest tribulation known
to mankind. “For there shall be then great tribulation, such as hath not
been from the beginning of the world until now, neither shall be.”
(Matthew 24:21) But these lukewarm Christians are worse than those
before the chastisement of Antichrist, for they came after the universal
conversion and the period of peace. “The new Jerusalem, which cometh
down out of Heaven from my God.” (Apocalypse 3:12) They ought to
have learned the Christian spirit not the worldly spirit. For the Christian
spirit consists in this:

“He who prays is certainly saved. He who prays not is


certainly damned. All the blessed (except infants) have been
saved by prayer. All the damned have been lost through not
praying; if they had prayed, they would not have been lost.
And this is, and will be their greatest torment in Hell, to
think how easily they might have been saved, only by asking
God for His grace; but that now it is too late, the time of
prayer is over.” 138

But instead of taking the Christian spirit, these Christians adopted


the worldly spirit. One of the maxims of the world is “It does not matter
what you believe so long as you act well.” That is the spirit of the world,
not the Christian spirit! “But his maxim is, in the Church to live as a
Christian, outside of the Church to live as the world lives. He dies with the
priest on one side, his infidel literature on the other and imagines that his
Creator will applaud his breadth of mind.” 139 There are many that state an
old phrase: “History is doomed to repeat itself.” Let us consider that
secular phrase as rubbish and replace that with what St. Bernadette says, “I
am only afraid of bad Catholics.” I will most certainly agree with the Saint
on that!
“I am rich, and made wealthy, and have need of nothing: and
knowest not, that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind,
and naked.”

“Many years ago there was a certain lord who kept a fool in

138 The Great Means to Salvation and of Perfection


139 What is Liberalism?

81
his house, as many great men did in those days for their
amusement. Now this lord had given the fool a staff, and
charged him to keep it till he met with one that was a greater
fool than himself, bidding him, if he met with such a one, to
deliver the staff to him. Not many years after, the lord fell
sick, and, indeed, was sick unto death. His fool came to see
him, and the sick lord told him that he must shortly leave
him. 'And where art thou going?' said the fool. 'Into another
world,' said the lord. 'And when wilt thou return; in a
month?' 'No,' said the lord. 'In a year?' 'No.' 'When, then?'
'Never never!' 'And what provision has thou made,' said the
fool, 'for thy entertainment in the place where thou art
going?' 'Alas! None at all.' 'What!' said the fool, 'none at all?
Here take my staff. Art thou going to dwell there forever,
and hast made no orders for thy entertainment in a place
from which thou wilt never return? Take my staff, for I am
not guilty of any such folly as this.'” 140

These negligent Christians, the Church of Laodicea, act as fools!


They forget the spiritual and only focus on the materially aspect of this
world. The spiritual however is superior to the material. But it does not go
to just the Church of Laodicea, it goes throughout Church history,
negligent Christians. It was through the very hard tribulations of the
Christians in the Church of Philadelphia did the riches of grace and
restoration come about. The Christians in the Church of Laodicea are
forgetful that these materials and spiritual goods are gifts from God, and
can be easily taken away.
“I counsel thee to buy of me gold fire tried, that thou mayest be
made rich; and mayest be clothed in white garments, and that the shame of
thy nakedness may not appear; and anoint thy eyes with eyesalve, that
thou mayest see. Such as I love, I rebuke and chastise. Be zealous
therefore, and do penance.”

“A poor widow one morning said to her little ones: 'My


children, I have nothing to give you today for your
breakfast; there is no bread, nor flour, nor even an egg in the
house. Go and ask God to come to your assistance, for He
has promised to help His children in their need.' One of the

140 Stories of the Catechist

82
children, aged only ten, went out of the house, and seeing
the door of a Church open, entered and fell on his knees
before the altar. He looked around him to see if there was
anyone near, but he saw no person; the Church seemed to be
empty. Thinking himself alone, he spoke out aloud. 'O good
Father who art in Heaven, we poor children have nothing to
eat today. O my God, give us something to eat, that we may
not die of hunger.' When he had said this prayer he rose up,
and hungry though he was, went to school for his morning
lessons. On his return home, he was surprised to see on the
table a great loaf of bread, a dish full of flour, and a basket
full of eggs. 'Oh, mamma,' he cried out with great joy, 'God
has heard my prayer. Was it an angel who brought in all
these nice things by the window?' 'No,' said the mother, 'but
God heard your prayer, and has answered it in His own way.
When you were keeling at the foot of the altar, and when
you thought you were alone, there happened to be a pious
lady near you whom you did not see. She heard your payer,
and it is she who brought us all these good things. She was
the angel God sent to help us. Let us kneel down and thank
Him for His goodness to us.”141

And this is how the Church of Laodicea should act, as beggars. For
that is all Christians are beggars. We are poor in and of ourselves. It is God
who supplies everything except our own free will. There will be few in the
Church of Laodicea that will act as a little child in the story above.
“Unless you be converted, and become as little children, you shall not
enter into the kingdom of Heaven.” (Matthew 18:3) For this child
displays, confidence, perseverance, zeal, patience, and gratitude. The child
was confident that God would send food to him and his family. He
persevered in prayer until he was finished. He was patient for he bore all
his suffering in silence and with submission when learning his school
lessons. He was zealous because he obeyed his mother promptly and went
to pray to God in the Church. And he was grateful of the food that was
given to him, for he thanked God for His goodness. In essence, he was an
'alter Christus'.
“Behold, I stand at the gate, and knock. If any man shall hear my
voice, and open to me the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with

141 Stories from the Catechist

83
him, and he with me.”

“St. Eulalia was only twelve years old when she was seized
as a Christian and condemned to die. It was towards the
beginning of the fourth century. Calpurnian, an officer of the
emperor, commanded her to be cruelly beaten with rods, but
the holy virgin remained firm. When her body was all one
wound she turned towards the officer, and with a firmness
with which the Holy Ghost inspired the martyrs, she cried
out: 'O Calpurnian, open your eyes and look at me. Take
care to observe well my countenance, that you may know
me again on that terrible day of judgment. You and I shall on
that day have to appear before Jesus Christ: I to receive the
reward of my sufferings, you to receive the chastisement due
for your cruelty.' After these words the martyr was put to
death. Her pure soul went to paradise, and her body was laid
in the grave to await the day of its glorious resurrection.” 142

The future Christians are going to be gravely tempted against their


faith. But as long as they have charity reigning supremely in their hearts
let them not fear anything. For with charity reigns all virtues. For charity
(divine love) fulfills both of the commandments laid out by God. “Thou
shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul,
and with thy whole mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment.
And the second is like to this: Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On
these two commandments dependeth the whole law and the prophets.”
(Matthew 22:37-40) Our Saviour told us to love Him always so that our
candle, a soul in sanctifying grace, may forever burn before the altar of the
Lord. “The two candlesticks, that stand before the Lord.” (Apocalypse
11:4) The two candlesticks represent the two commandments that God
commanded us to obey. (Matthew 22:37-40) “A hot soul is a burning fire,
it will never be quenched.” (Ecclesiasticus 23:22) The reason why Adam
and Eve fell from the garden of paradise is because they ceased to love
God in their hearts. For we know that “charity never falleth away.”(I
Corinthians 13:8) Those who are in love are always faithful. We must love
Him, if we wish to remain faithful to Him. As we can say charity (divine
love) of many shall grow cold because iniquity (sin) hath abounded.
(Emphasis: Matthew 24:12)

Summary
Introduction:
● We are to understand it is through people's ignorance that they fall
into heresy.
● Christians were fighting an enemy within the Church, yet many
were not aware of it because of their ignorance.
● This fault could have been willful ignorance which is inexcusable.
A Christian who willfully did not want to know what the problem
is and correct it is like a penitent seeking the Sacrament of
Penance, but not in the least bit determined to give up the sins and
the occasions that lead him to sin.

Chapter 1
● There were many causes that brought about the Protestant
Revolution against the Church. What I covered was only the tip of
the iceberg. With that being said, Martin Luther, was just the fruit,
(emphasis: result) from the bad tree.
● The doctrine that Martin Luther produced was the denial of
absolute truth, the seed of Liberalism.
● This lead to a social and spiritual revolution against Church &
State.
● The fruits of this social revolution caused the death of society.
(Emphasis: Separation of Church and State) Affects from the social
revolution can still be felt today especially.
● Liberalism we must remember is “whether in the doctrinal or
practical order, is a sin. In the doctrinal order, it is heresy, and
consequently a mortal sin against faith. In the practical order, it is a
sin against the commandments of God and of the Church, for it
virtually transgresses all commandments.” Today we have results
for there are none that heed the agony of Church.
● The seed of revolt, Liberalism, was targeted mainly against the
Papacy. So the flock may be scattered. (Zacharias 13:7)

Chapter 2:
● St. Thomas More († 1535): “The Pope is the descendant of St.
Peter, our only link with Christ.”
● To be Christian and to save their soul one must submit themselves
to the pope.

85
● Pope Boniface VIII († 1303) clearly proclaims in his encyclical
Unam Sanctam: “Furthermore, we declare, we proclaim, we define
that it is absolutely necessary for salvation that every human
creature be subject to the Roman Pontiff.”
● Without the Pope there cannot be a valid council of the Church
according to Canon Law 222.
● Martin Luther thought the Papacy was intertwined with the devil:
“I am not sure whether the Pope is Antichrist himself, or only one
of his apostles.” He latter confirms this belief by writing a
pamphlet to Pope Paul III († 1549) naming it Against the Papacy
Founded by the Devil.
● Martin Luther although contradicts himself, he also states: “I
avouch, that under the papacy there is true Christianity, yea, the
kernel and marrow of Christianity.”

Chapter 3
● Gallicanism made further divisions between the papacy and
society.
● The heretical Gallican church pronounced 1) The Pope may not
interfere directly or indirectly with the temporal concerns of
princes. 2) In spiritual matters a General Council is superior to the
Pope. 3) The rights and customs of the Gallican Church are
inviolable. 4) The Pope is not infallible, even in matters of faith,
unless his decision is confirmed by the consent of the Church.
● As Cardinal Henry Manning phrases properly in his treatise, The
Fourfold Sovereignty of God: “So long as the world is Christian,
the world will believe in Jesus Christ and in His Vicar. So long as
it believes He has a Vicar upon earth, no king, prince or sovereign
whatsoever will venture to claim him as a subject.
● Cardinal Henry Manning also confirms: “The dethronement of the
Vicar of Christ is the dethronement of the hierarchy of the
universal Church, and the public rejection of the Presence and
Reign of Jesus.”
● The French people revolted and confiscated Church property. They
even put a girl of ill repute on the consecrated altars of the Notre
Dame in Paris and worshiped her as a Goddess.

Chapter 4
● The Church fought back with the grace of God declared and
defined the Pope as being infallible in faith and morals at the only
Vatican Council. 143

Chapter 5
● The faithful Christians had to strengthen the things that are to
remain and be ready to die. (Apocalypse 3:2)
● The things that needed to be strengthen were the interior life of
Christians and the articles in the Christian faith recently
pronounced.
● St. Hildegard († 1179): “The time is coming when princes and
people will renounce the authority of the Pope. Individual
countries will prefer their own church rulers to the pope.”
● “Out of forty seven persons cautiously sounded by our young
Hindu, only three or four truly preferred God to things. And it goes
without saying that he had only approached good Catholics.”
● We can state that nearly all Christians were in a state of
lukewarmness.
● Our Lord does not like lukewarmness “But because thou art
lukewarm, and neither cold, not hot, I will begin to vomit thee out
of my mouth.” (Apocalypse 3:16)
● As St. Alphonsus Ligouri states in his writing The True Spouse of
Jesus Christ about the state of lukewarmness on Apocalypse 3:16:
“The Redeemer signified that He was ready to abandon the tepid
soul; for what is vomited is taken back only with horror.” He asks
the rhetorical question on how God begins to vomit a soul out of

143 “Therefore, faithfully adhering to the tradition received from the beginning of the
Christian faith, for the glory of God our Saviour, the exaltation of the Catholic
religion, and the salvation of Christian people, with the approval of the sacred
council, We teach and define that it is a dogma divinely revealed: that the Roman
Pontiff, when he speaks ex cathedra, that is, when, in discharge of the office of pastor
and teacher of all Christians, by virtue of his supreme Apostolic authority, he defines
a doctrine regarding faith or morals to be held by the universal Church, is, by the
divine assistance promised to him in Blessed Peter, possessed of that infallibility with
which the divine Redeemer willed that His Church should be endowed in defining
doctrine regarding faith or morals; and that, therefore, such definitions of the Roman
pontiff are of themselves, and not from the consent of the Church, irreformable. But
if anyone-which may God avert!- presume to contradict this our definition, let him be
anathema.” Dogmatic Canons And Decrees

His mouth. He answers:
“He ceases to give her (emphasis: the soul)
the vivid lights of faith, the spiritual
consolations, the holy desires, and the loving
calls which he was accustomed to bestow
upon her. Bereft of these blessings, she
begins to neglect her meditations,
Communions, and visits to the Blessed
Sacrament, or to discharge these duties with
repugnance, disgust, and distraction. Thus the
miserable soul finding only pain and trouble,
and no comfort in any of her exercises of
piety, she finally abandons them all, and falls
into grievous sins.”
● The consequences of lukewarmness among Catholics both clerics
and faithful are the following, according to Cardinal Henry
Manning in his book The Fourfold Sovereignty of God:
“There may, indeed, be another alternative;
and I acknowledge, looking at the stream of
events, the time may come when nations,
governments, and legislatures may cease to
believe that Jesus Christ has a Church upon
earth; and in the day when they cease so to
believe (and I am bound to say, their acts led
us to think they are not far off from the state
of unbelief), then the world will not be
Christian, and then I acknowledge that the
Vicar of Jesus Christ will have no temporal
power over the world that has rejected his
Master. Though I am no prophet and no
expositor of prophecy and know nothing of
what is to come, save only as the Catholic
Church and faith guide me, of this I am sure
from the lips of Jesus Christ, that in those
days which we call the latter times, 'kingdom
shall rise against kingdom, and nation against
nation, and brother betray brother to death,'
and the world shall be in misery it never
knew before.”

88
● This lukewarmness by Catholics prior to 1950's and up until 1950's
was the reason for God sending the Divine Justice punishment of
Antichrist. “Have in mind therefore in what manner thou hast
received and heard: and observe, and do penance. If then thou shalt
not watch, I will come to thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know at
what hour I will come to thee. But thou hast a few names in Sardis,
which have not defiled their garments: and they shall walk with me
in white, because they are worthy.” (Apocalypse 3:3-4)
● Antichrist is the antagonist to Christ, for Antichrist is a thief, Christ
is a shepherd. Thieves are out to steal, shepherds are out to protect.
Antichrist stole souls from Heaven (Apocalypse 12:4), Christ
brings souls to Heaven. “This day thou shalt be with me in
paradise.” (Luke 23:43)
● Joachim of Fiore († 1202): “Towards the end of the world,
Antichrist will overthrow the pope and usurp his See.” 144
● After the death of Pope Pius XII († 1958) the flock was scattered.
● Christ states that there are few souls in the Church of Sardis that
are worthy of obtaining Heaven. These few are the scattering band.
“And when the scattering of the band of the holy people shall be
accomplished, all these things shall be finished.” (Daniel 12:7)

Chapter 6
● Nicholas of Fluh († 1487) “The Church will be punished because
the majority of Her members high and low will become so
perverted. The Church will sink still deeper until she will at last
seem to be extinguished, and the succession of Peter and the other
Apostles to have expired. After that she will be victoriously exalted
in the sight of all doubters.”145
● “There is a remnant saved according to the election of grace.”
(Romans 11:5) This remnant from the Church of Sardis elected a
new pope to continue the perpetual successors of St. Peter which
was declared a dogma at the Vatican Council (1870). 146
● The new pope, chose the name Michael because ever since he was

this name he fulfilled the line from Daniel: “But at that time shall
Michael rise up.” (Daniel 12:1) “According to the great St.
Alphonsus Liguori, veneration of the holy Angels, and particularly
of St. Michael, is an outstanding sign of predestination.” 147
● There will a divine chastisement during the Church of
Philadelphia. “Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I
will also keep thee from the hour of the temptation, which shall
come upon the whole world to try them that dwell upon the earth.”
(Apocalypse 3:10)
● Blessed Maria Taigi († 1837): “There shall come over all the earth
an intense darkness lasting three days and three nights. Nothing
will be visible and the air will be laden with pestilence. During this
darkness artificial light will be impossible. He who out of
curiously opens his window to look out or leaves his house will fall
dead on the spot. On this terrible occasion so many of these wicked
men, enemies of His Church, and of their God, shall be killed by
this divine scourge, that their corpses round Rome will be as
numerous as fish, which a recent inundation of the Tiber had
carried into the city. All the enemies of the Church, secret as well
as known, will perish over the whole earth during that universal
darkness, with the exception of some few, whom God will soon
after convert. The air shall be infected by demons, who will appear
under all sorts of hideous forms.” 148
● Abbess Maria Steiner († 1862): “The Lord showed me how
beautiful the world will be after the awful chastisement. The
people will be like the Christians of the primitive Church.”

end, My Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will
consecrate Russia to me, and a certain period of peace will be
granted to the world.”

Chapter 9
● Christians will fall away from their once great fervor, for charity
will be hardly in their hearts.
● They will be incredibly lukewarm as were the Christians prior to
the coming of Antichrist.
● There will be another small remnant of the Church. But much
larger than during the tribulation of Antichrist. “But yet the Son of
man, when he cometh, shall he find, think you, faith on earth?”
(Luke 18:8)

“One day Napoleon, from the rock of St. Helena,


contemplated the Heavens, the earth, and the sea; he was
reviewing in his mind the empires of the world and their
institutions, the great men of the past, and their works, and
then exclaimed: 'The nations of the earth pass away, and the
thrones fall to the ground, the Church alone remains.'” 149

Appendix: How To Prepare For The End Of The World
“If we make a mistake as to the state to which we are called, our
whole life, as St. Gregory says, will be an error.” 150 What do we mean by
the end of the world? There are two interpretations to that particular
phrase. There is the second coming of Christ, which is the end of the
world for everyone. But there also the end of the world for the particular
individual. Now death to the individual can happen at any time before the
second coming of Christ. It is the end of the world for you. The world
does not wait for you to die, the world can continue on without you. For
you are but slime of the earth. We creatures, are of no importance, the
world does not need us to sustain itself. There can be only two choices in
this life. You can choose to live a life of virtue or a life of vice. Virtues are
perfections in accordance to the will of God. Now with vice, it is an
variance with the will of God.

“Philip II, king of Spain, during the time of the holy


Sacrifice, noticed that two of his nobles, forgetting the
sanctity of the place, were behaving in a very disrespectful
manner in the presence of God. He said nothing to them at
the time, but when Mass was over, and they had left the
chapel, the king sent for them. When they came into his
presence they saw at once by the severity of his countenance
that he was very angry. 'I observed today,' said the king, 'the
unworthy manner in which you conducted yourselves in the
chapel at Mass. For that sin I banish you both from my
presence for ever. I cannot allow anyone to live with me who
behaves so disrespectfully in the presence of God. Do not
dare, as long as you live, to enter my palace again.' These
words, pronounced in a tone of severity, made such an
impression on the two nobles that one was stuck with
apoplexy and died on the spot, and the other soon after lost
his reason, and remained insane during the rest of his life. If
the words of a king in this world had such an effect on those
who had offended, how terrible will be the effects of those
words of the Eternal King of Heaven: Depart from me, ye
accursed, into everlasting fire.” 151

151 Stories From The Catechist

And so these two poor souls, one dropped dead the other became
insane. What then is more foolish or rather insane, when we do not prepare
ourselves for death? We continually offend God by our sins, whether they
are mortal or venial. But you may say, “It does not matter what you
believe so long as you act well.” That is the spirit of the world, not the
Christian spirit! The spirit that you have in your heart is, “in the Church to
live as a Christian, outside of the Church to live as the world lives.” Listen
then to another story, this one is about St. Bruno.

“An ancient tradition among the Carthusians says, that what


led St. Bruno to the monastic life was the following fact
which took place in Paris, on the death of a man named
Raymund, who had always been considered a good
Christian. As the dirge was being sung around bier, at the
fourth lesson, beginning with these words 'Responde mihi'
Raymund raised his head and said: 'I am accused by the just
judgment of God.' The burial was delayed, and the next day
at the same place in the office, Raymund spoke again and
said: 'I am judged by the just judgment of God.' And on the
third day in the presence of great numbers who had heard of
the occurrence, he said: 'I am damned by the just judgment
of God.' Bruno was present, and with his own ears heard the
terrible voice of this hypocrite, accused, judged, and
condemned: but his heart was more struck than his ears. He
renewed his good resolutions, and nothing could prevent
him from putting them into execution.” 152

Look at that Christian who was considered good in the eyes of the
world, he was damned! He was not good enough in God's eyes, for he died
in the state of mortal sin. Let us listen to St. John Vianney and how he
informs us on how we should live.

“Generally speaking, one dies as one has lived. That is one


of the great truths which Holy Scripture and the Fathers
repeat in many different places. If you live as good
Christians, you will be sure to die as good Christians, but if
you live badly, you will be sure to die a bad death...It is true,
however, that sometimes by a kind of miracle, one may

152 Stories From The Catechist

93
begin badly and finish well, but that happens so rarely that,
as St. Jerome puts it, death is generally the echo of life. You
think that you will return then to God? No, you will perish
in sin...”153

“As the days of thy youth, so also shall thy old age be.”
(Deuteronomy 33:25) What makes you think, that throughout your whole
life you have been sinning against God and His Divine Mercy, expect then
to get pardoned at the hour of death? Throughout your whole life you have
continually proved to God, that you do not sincerely love Him. Let not
lukewarmness set in your heart. That is why you must not wait for the last
hour of death to convert. Can a student pass an exam if he has no
knowledge in that field in which the examination is going to take place?
What then makes you expect to pass your eternal examination if you do
not prepare for it now? You must convert today, and now, to show Him
how much you love Him. You must say with your whole heart, “That from
this moment, I shall change and not go back to the way I was.”

“There lived, long ago, in one of the monasteries of the


Cistercian Order, two holy monks who had a great affection
for one another, and who seemed to lead unblemished lives.
One of them died. Soon after his death he appeared to his
friend whom he had left behind, while offering up his
prayers for the repose of his soul. As soon as he saw him,
and perceived that his face bore marks of suffering, he asked
him how he came to be in that state. The deceased monk
answered, saying three times these words: 'No one can
imagine – no one can imagine – no one can imagine.' 'What
do you mean,' said the other, 'by these strange words?' The
dead religious answered, 'No one can imagine how severe
are the judgments of God, and how terrible His
punishments.' Saying this, he disappeared, leaving the
religious full of fear.” 154

I have proved to you the necessity of preparing oneself for the hour
of your death, which will be the end of the world for you. Do not worry so
much about what will Christ do at the end of the world, you need to

prepare yourself for your judgment. Your death could happen as you read
this treatise. Now there are two routes you can choose to either do penance
and enter into the kingdom of God, or do not do penance and enter Hell. I
will tell you how simple it is to do penance.
Our Lord commanded us to do penance for our sins. “But unless
you shall do penance, you shall all likewise perish.” (Luke 13:3) Our Lord
never said that penance must be hard. He did however say, “The spirit
indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.” (Mark 14:38) There are a few
ways to make our payments to God for our debt to sin. The first is actual
damnation of our soul. Where for all eternity we have to pay back our debt
to Him. The second is an imperfect payment in charity. This “charity
covereth a multitude of sins.” (I Peter 4:8) Since it is not a complete
payment we would have to descend into purgatory until the rest of the debt
is payed off. “Learn hence, my friend, how tormenting is the fire of
Purgatory when scarcely an hour seems to be thirty years, and learn, too,
to have pity on us.” 155 The last route to pay off the debt of our sins, is to
do complete penance for our sins. This is a perfect act of charity which
“covereth all sins.” (Proverbs 10:12)

“In Portugal there was a devout client of Mary who during


his life practiced the devotion of fasting on bread and water
every Saturday and chose Saint Michael and Saint John as
his advocates with the Blessed Virgin. At the hour of his
death the Queen of Heaven appeared to him accompanied by
those two Saints who were praying for him. The Blessed
Virgin looked at him with a joyful countenance and thus
answered the prayers of the Saints: 'I will not depart hence
without taking this soul with me.'” 156

Let me ask you my dear friends, how hard is it to fast once a week
on bread and water? Or even just to say one Hail Mary everyday? How
grueling can that labor be? Can it even be considered labor?

“In the country of Normandy a certain robber was


beheaded, and his head was thrown into a trench; but
afterwards it was heard crying: 'Mary, give me confession.' A
priest went to him and heard his confession; and questioning

156 The Glories of Mary

95
him as to his practices of devotion, the robber answered that
he had no other except that of fasting one day of the week in
honor of the holy Virgin, and that for this our Lady had
obtained for him the grace to be delivered from Hell by that
confession.” 157

Think about this my dear friends, it is through divine love (charity)


that we are to remit the temporal punishments for our sins. It is through
the Sacrament of Penance that eternal punishment is remitted. However,
we still have the debt of temporal punishment we sinners must back pay
back to God fully. It is through charity (divine love) that temporal
punishment be paid. A perfect act of charity “covereth all sins.” (Proverbs
10:12) A perfect act of charity, when saying, “I love Thee Jesus” or “I love
thee Mary,” remits our temporal punishments! The only thing that is
necessary to get to a perfect act of contrition is for us to kindle our fervor
for the love of God through the practicing of the interior life. There is a
difference between the Protestants and the Christians. For Christians
believe that you need the Sacrament of Penance for remission of eternal
guilt of sin. Protestants do not believe that. They believe today (according
to today's standard of Protestantism) that so long as you believe in Jesus
Christ as your Savior, you are not only redeemed but also saved. They
neglect to pay most importantly the temporal punishments for the sins they
have committed. In addition, they confuse the difference between the
words 'redemption158 and being 'saved'.159 Being saved means, according to
Protestants, that you are going to Heaven no matter what you do. You
could commit all the sins you want on Earth, and still be 'saved.' It is
similar to Calvin's erroneous theology of predestination. But redemption is
the paying through the death of Christ for our sins actually committed by
us and being born into original sin. Christ remits the eternal punishment
for our sin through the Sacrament of Penance. We however must suffer the
guilt of our sin by temporal punishment, for Christ did not commit actual

157 The Glories of Mary


158 “Man having been created in a state of original justice by his sin forfeited the
friendship of God and became enslaved to the Devil. Christ by his death on the
cross, in which he became a substitutional victim for the human race, paid the price
for our redemption (buying back); by His satisfactions He blotted out our sin, and
by His merits he won for us the restoration to the grace and friendship of God.” A

sin, we however did. Therefore according to God's Justice we ought to
suffer temporal punishment for committing actual sin. The thief on the
cross suffered his temporal punishment willingly. “And we,” says the good
thief, “indeed justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds.” (Luke
23:41) The good thief goes on to say, “but this man hath done no evil.”
(Luke 23:42) This God-Man has done no wrong, He ought not to suffer
any punishment for He is innocent. It is only those who accept their
temporal punishments from God will enter into the kingdom of Heaven.
“And Jesus said to him: Amen I say to thee, this day thou shalt be with me
in paradise.” (Luke 23:43) He did not say that to the other thief who died
blaspheming Christ. The blasphemer wanted Christ to let him down from
the cross so he could stop suffering the temporal punishment due to the
sins he actually committed. “And one of those robbers who were hanged,
blasphemed him, saying: If thou be Christ, save thyself and us.” (Luke
23:41) The robber denied that Christ was God, if thou be Christ, he states,
spare us from these punishments we are receiving. But at last what does
God do? All three of them died upon the cross. All three of them suffered
the temporal punishments, even the innocent suffered them (emphasis:
Christ). 160 If the innocent must suffer unto death with temporal
punishments, what makes the guilty exempted from them?
“Let all your things be done in charity.”(1 Corinthians 16:14) The
first step to God, must be an act of love, however feeble your love may be
for God. A great bonfire is started with but a few sparks and some dry
wood. Divine Love in your heart must too start small. “May He open your
heart in His law, and in His commandments, and send you peace.” (2
Machabees 1:4) In the beginning, your love for God, is like a candle in the
wind. The distractions of this world can easily blow out your sole
happiness, peace, and love in this life and for eternity. That is why that we
must make continual acts of love. “We ought always to pray, and not to
faint.” (Luke 18:1) By continual prayer and meditation we add more fuel
to the fire (Divine Love). “My heart grew hot within me: and in my
meditation a fire shall flame out.” (Psalms 38:4) By constantly praying we
are securing and preparing ourselves for our last moment, death and
judgment. “And as it is appointed unto men once to die, and after this the
judgment.” (Hebrews 9:27) Our Saviour told us to love Him always so
that our candle, a soul in sanctifying grace, may forever burn before the

grace as the angel proclaims. (Luke 1:28) She died of love according to Venerable
Mary of Agreda in the work Mystical City of God.

97
altar of the Lord. “The two candlesticks, that stand before the Lord.”
(Apocalypse 11:4) The two candlesticks represent the two commandments
that God commanded us to obey. “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with
thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with thy whole mind. And
the second is like to this: Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On
these two commandments dependeth the whole law and the prophets.”
(Matthew 22:37-40)
“A hot soul is a burning fire, it will never be quenched.”
(Ecclesiasticus 23:22) The reason why Adam and Eve fell from Heaven is
because they ceased to love God in their hearts. For we know that “charity
never falleth away.”(I Corinthians 13:8) Those who are in love are always
faithful. We must love Him, if we wish to remain faithful to Him.
Divine Love is the source of all virtues: Humility, Liberality,
Chastity, Meekness, Temperance, Brotherly Love, Diligence. “For, with
the heart, we believe unto justice.” (Romans 10:10) That is with the heart
we become holy, let us recall that justice is another word for holiness.
Therefore we must at all costs cultivate divine love in our heart for it
consists in the satisfaction of our sins (penance) as well as the propagation
of virtue. “Neither do men light a candle and put it under a bushel, but
upon a candlestick, that it may shine to all that are in the house.” (Matthew
5:15)
“Blessed are they that hunger and thirst after justice: for they shall
have their fill.” (Matthew 5:6) That is to say blessed are those souls that
hunger and thirst after the body and blood of Jesus Christ who consists of
all holiness. Love is the only true way to God, for first He commanded us
to love Him and our neighbor. Love makes a soul irresistible to God, as
well as God to the soul. It is a reciprocal action. “Love attracts love.” (The
Art of Prayer, Fr. Martial Lekeux O.F.M.) This love when it reaches it's
complete climax, the soul espouses God in a spiritual marriage. “Arise,
make haste, my love, my dove, my beautiful one, and come.” (Canticles
2:10) Let us recap:
1. There are three ways to satisfy the punishments (both eternal and
temporal) due to our sins:
1. Damnation (For having failed to do penance.)
2. Incomplete (Sent to purgatory to suffer until every last
farthing.)
3. Complete (Doing sufficient penance on earth to cover all sins.)
2. Our love for God starts off small, like a spark.
3. We must always pray, for prayer is the fuel that makes the fire of

98
divine love enormous.
4. There are two ways to increase divine love:
1. Meditation/Contemplation
2. Remembering the presence of God
5. That souls in sanctifying grace are candles sweetly burning on the
altar of the Lord.
6. The two candlesticks that burn before God are two
commandments. The first commandment is to love God and
second is to love our neighbor.
7. Those that are consumed with the love of God, will obtain eternal
happiness, “for they shall have their fill.”

About The Author

Throughout my life I always had a fascination with history. I have


studied many topics in history, from the American Civil War, to World War
II, to the Special Forces in Vietnam and to the present condition. During
grade school I made a presentation on the Battle of Hastings. I always had
a keen desire of learning about the middle ages and the ages of faith. The
ages of faith are known more widely in the secular world as, the dark ages.
When I entered the Annunciation Seminary in the fall of 2008, I began
studying and writing a dissertation on the History of Chivalry and the
Church. Henceforth, I chose to get a doctorate in Church History.
My whole life, I have desired to specifically learn more about
chivalry and its profound affects it had on society. That is why I began
writing this current dissertation, the one you are about to read when I
entered the seminary. My main goal is to look at Church History and see
where the clerics and the faithful made mistakes. I want to learn from their
mistakes and improve the yield in saving souls. “And some fell upon good
ground; and brought forth fruit that grew up, and increased and yielded,
one thirty, another sixty, and another a hundred.” (Mark 4:8)
The only desire that I have for writing this dissertation on Church
History, is that all souls after reading this, have an ardent longing for the
kingdom of God. But we know sadly, few want to go to Heaven. “How
narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life: and few there
are that find it!” (Matthew 7:14)
“Everyone that is damned, is damned because he wills his own
damnation.” 161
