Quacking up!

Applying another band-aid on an incurable cancer is not the answer but only prolonging a slow, painful death of the anathema that is the New Order!

    Why have these modern prelates forgotten the tremendous wisdom passed down over the centuries by wise and holy men who have been declared Saints and Doctors of the Church? Rather than listening and responding, the modern wardens of the Faith only stretch out the agonizing, but inevitable demise of the New Order. For the sake of souls, put the Novus Ordo out of their misery now!

Dying a slow death: Is it fair to extend false hope with yet another document out of Modern Rome which is merely an ineffective bandage on many members of the Mystical Body, which are rotting away because of the malignant tumors of Modernism, Humanism, Ecumenism, Paganism, Syncretism, Pluralism and every other ism that ever came down the pike? The only cure is to immerse the entire Mystical Body in the only healing solution there is to save souls: a complete return to the Immemorial Mass of All Ages - the Traditional Latin Mass set in stone "in perpetuity" by Pope St. Pius V. Despite apostate prelates like Cardinal Mahoney's dissing of such holy giants as merely "dead popes" the weight of their words and the full weight of Heaven still holds. Anything short of totally sacking the Novus Ordo and abandoning the anathemas that evolved from Vatican II as terrible experiments gone horribly bad, is akin to spiritual suicide! History will prove us right, though we rather Catholics prove God right by adhering to His Holy Will.
      The Modern Vatican chose the Feast of St. George to release the lastest attempt to plug up the dam that is ready to flood over in damning more souls by placing a cork in the bulging bulwark with a document that only tries to justify the unjustifiable and fix the unfixable. Afraid the dragon has gotten the better of the New Vaticancrats who fail to remember the wisdom that preceded them including the weight of the wisdom of St. Pius V, St. Robert Bellarmine and St. Alphonsus Liguori. Good luck to the newChurch with their latest toothpick when the Sword of Truth is all that is needed.

   On the Feast of Saint George, April 23rd the New Vatican released a 70-plus page document from Cardinal Francis Arinze, Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship in trying to stem the runaway abuses that have taken place ever since Paul VI issued in the "abomination of desolation" on April 3, 1969 - which also happened to be the Feast of Passover that year to complicate and intensify the sacrilege all the more - known to all as his Missale Romanum that with its release, ushered in "the wrath of Almighty God and the Blessed Apostles Peter and Paul" for the modern church's defiance of what previous Pontiffs, many of them holy saints, had warned of so solemnly.

   But as we have documented and seen, the Novus Ordo establishment is a man-made concoction crafted by satan's own in Archbishop Anibale Bugnini, a confirmed 33rd Degree Mason who was doing the bidding for forces who were vowed to destroy Holy Mother Church, and a hardened Marxist Jesuit priest Father Joseph Gelineau, and six Protestant 'experts.' Please, when will Catholics wake up? As for me it wasn't until I realized the veracity of Christ's words in Matthew 7: 15-20, that "By their fruits you shall know them" that I realized the false facade continued by John Paul II and those who had placed him on such a lofty pedestal, pushing plaudits devoid of substance and longevity, but sounding good as we plodded onward through a sewer of ecclesiastical abuses in the New Mass. There comes a point when one has to say, enough is enough. That came for us in 2000 - the Jubilee Year during and after a pilgrimage to Lourdes in which the scales were removed from our eyes. We saw that it truly was a charade the charlatans were staging.

   That realization forced us to go back and re-examine all we had been taught and as much as we could of what Holy Mother Church has always taught. In comparing this and what is being pushed on Catholics today, I realized you can't have it both ways. Either we stand by what has always been taught and practice that Faith, or we abandon all that preceded Vatican II and cling to a sinking ship. I could never do the latter and so we have since then made it a priority to utilize this vehicle of The Daily Catholic to educate as many as possible as to the fact that the emperor truly isn't wearing any clothes. If Christ is right that a good tree cannot bear bad fruit, how then do you reconcile the terrible defection of millions and millions of Catholics from the Church since the sixties? If Our Lord is correct in asserting that a bad tree cannot bear good fruit, how do you justify the terrible sex abuse scandals, the bishops' disregard for souls in favor of power and prestige, and the Pope's stubborn insistence on seeing the ecumaniacal agenda through to its bitter end? Indeed it was this pope's appointment of Cardinal Walter Kasper to the College of Cardinals that really woke me up. I had said never would he do such a thing. But not only did this pope, so enamored by the secular world because of his willingness to compromise Catholic truths in favor of pleasing man, do this but he also personally appointed this fox to guard the henhouse by making him President of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue in replacing an equally heretical man in Cardinal Edward Isdris Cassidy who himself does not believe in the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Yes, folks, those are the kind of men John Paul II has placed in control. Should we continue then to trust these men whether they be priest, bishop, cardinal or pope who have done such great harm to souls? I think not. In fact, I know we cannot for Saint Robert Bellarmine stated very clearly in his De Romano Pontifice that

    "It is permissible to resist the Pope when he invades souls and troubles the commonwealth: and moreover, if he appears to be causing harm to the Church, it is permissible, I say, to resist him by not doing what he enjoins and by preventing his will to triumph."

   It was this same great Jesuit facilitator of the decrees of Trent, this holy Doctor of the Church who rightly identified what we have today when he wrote in his "Eight General Controversies" - Octava Controversia Generalis, Book 2, in the Fifth Controversy, chapter 31:

    "When we enter ornate and clean Basilicas, adorned with crosses, sacred images, altars, and burning lamps, we most easily conceive devotion. But, on the other hand, when we enter the temples of the heretics, where there is nothing except a chair for preaching and a wooden table for making a meal, we feel ourselves to be entering a profane hall and not the house of God."

  Can Catholics not see the latter is exactly what the Novus Ordo churches are? Can Catholics not see that they are the "temples of the heretics" and "profane halls" and NOT the house of God? It was another Doctor of the Church Saint Alphonsus Liguori who so praised the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass as decreed by Trent:

    "The Mass is the most beautiful and the best thing in the Church. At the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, Jesus Christ giveth Himself to us by means of the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar, which is the end and the purpose of all the other Sacraments. One single Mass gives more honor to God than all the penances of the Saints, the labors of the Apostles, the sufferings of the martyrs, and even the burning love of the Blessed Mother of God. Man cannot perform a more holy, a more grand, a more sublime action than to celebrate a Mass, in regard to which the Council of Trent says: 'We must needs confess that no other work can be holy and divine as this tremendous Mystery itself. God Himself cannot cause an action to be performed that is holier and grander than the celebration of Mass."

   It was this same saint then who warned of these times as well and the very "abomination of desolation" that did take place on April 3, 1969:

    "The devil has always attempted, by means of the heretics, to deprive the world of the Mass, making them precursors of the antichrist, who, before anything else, will try to abolish and will actually abolish the Holy Sacrament of the altar, as a punishment for the sins of men, according to the prediction of Daniel 'And strength was given him against the continual sacrifice' (Daniel 8: 12)"

   We see now how this was done? It could not be done from without, but needed to be done within. And it is within that the enemy still resides and until we realize that, the enemy only grows stronger. That fact is borne out in the latest document by Arinze whom many publications are touting as a viable candidate for the next Pope. God forbid for he is worse than our present Pope. It is no secret that Arinze is no friend of the Traditional Latin Mass or the infallible, dogmatic decrees of Trent. In fact, among the 298 footnotes there were only three references to Trent! And this document was supposed to be on the Mass? Please! There is one document on the Mass that trumps all others and that is Pope Saint Pius V's Quo Primum. From his infallible words there was no need from that point forward to clarify or alter anything for he said several times that this decree is to be held "in perpetuity" which means - forever. No one could change it or they would "incur the wrath of Almighty God and the Blessed Apostles Peter and Paul."

   We can see now this is exactly what has happened and bad only follows bad. In other words, bad fruit after bad fruit that can only come from one source - a bad tree. We know what Christ said in Matthew 7: 19, "Every tree that yieldeth not good fruit, shall be cut down, and shall be cast into the fire" and again in Luke 3: 9, "For now the axe is laid to the root of the trees. Every tree, therefore, that bringeth not forth good fruit, shall be cut down and cast into the fire" and yet again in Luke 6: 43, "For there is no good tree that bringeth forth evil fruit: nor an evil tree that bringeth forth good fruit. For every tree is known by its fruit. For men do not gather figs from thorns: nor from a bramble bush do they gather grapes. A good man, out of the good treasure of his heart, bringeth forth that which is good: and an evil man, out of the evil treasure, bringeth forth that which is evil."

   We can then see the fruitlessness in trying to prop up the bad fruit as Arinze and the rest of the New Order are trying to do for you can't gather figs from thorns or grapes from bramble bushes and that is exactly what the Novus Ordo is a bramble bush full of thorns, bitter thorns that have pierced the sensibilities of so many Catholics. Those Brer Rabbits who have asked for this are getting exactly what they asked for. But the longer it continues and the more they call out for help, instead of being offered the true Bread of Life in the indefectable Immemorial Mass of All Ages are offered the stones of heresy and anathema, instead of being offered the fish of penance and uncompromising Faith they are offered a serpent, the very serpent that will get his head crushed by Our Lady. But until then he slithers and coils everywhere and nowhere is he more present than in today's modern Church. Thus, rather than totally solving the problem, totally eliminating the source of evil, these purveyors of Vatican II only taunt God more by stubbornly persisting in their fated course, by applying more bandages on an incurable cancer. Pretty soon even the bandaids won't stick any more. They can't. It's the slippery slope and I personally want no part of the New Order. I truly believe as time moves on more and more Catholics are coming to the same realization and affirmation of that same conclusion.

   I would be truly amazed, shocked if you will, if the document Redemptionis Sacramentum does accomplish anything. I say that as a result of the sorry history of response by the bishops of America and the vast majority of Catholics who seem to think they can do what they please for somehow, some way they will be able to justify their actions by citing the ambiguity of Vatican II sources. That's what John Kerry thinks. It's what Ted Kennedy thinks. It is what the Archbishop of our nation's capitol thinks for crying out loud! Yes, Cardinal Theodore McCarrick has officially gone on record as saying it's none of his business. Say what? Why this man has not resigned in disgrace along with Cardinal Bernard Law is beyond me. McCarrick is a disgrace to the very Roman Collar he wears and the Pectoral Cross that pierces Our Lord anew again and again when he denies Christ with such insipid, whimpy, politically correct but certainly NON-CATHOLIC statements. Multiply his attitude by 300 or more and you see the plight of the Church in America today, a mere microcosm of the universal Church.

   And yet there are those who believe this document will finally wake the bishops from their long lukewarm slumber and call to task these pro-abort politicians who claim to be Catholic. I guess here I am definitely a doubting Thomas, in other words, I'll believe it when I see it. I'm not in Missouri for nothing. It's the 'show-me-state' so show me. After all, the bishops didn't do anything when Vatican II drastically altered the landscape of morality and the Mass, they didn't do anything when an encyclical was issued against contraception, they didn't do anything when they were no longer required to vow before God the Oath against Modernism, they didn't do anything when a new Canon Law came out to cover for the changes and masquerade the charade as legitimate; they didn't do anything when this Pope voiced disapproval but never followed up with action. No the only time these sorry prelates ever do anything is when a priest would dare obey St. Pius V and say the Latin Mass like Father Stephen Zigrang did last year in the very same diocese where sodomy, paganism, syncretism and Masonry is so prevalent. With all those terrible heresies what do you think his ordinary Bishop Charles Fiorenza saw as the most dangerous evil? You guessed it, a holy man seeking to bring sanity to his flock by returning to Tradition just as Pope Saint Hadrian II stated, "The first requirement of salvation is to keep the standard of the True Faith," was summarily and quickly discharged by his pitiful Modernist bishop who proceeded to add slander and calumny by further denigrating Fr. Zigrang. Thank God Father stood up and did not back down. What this world needs are more Fr. Zigrangs. Perhaps this document will wake up many priests to the brutal facts that you cannot fix the unfixable. We can only pray.

   While this most recent document is rooted in Vatican II-speak and full of the same baffle-gab and beat-around-the-bush-but- don't-call-a-spade-a-spade-for-fear-of-offending-anyone gibberish with a few orthodox points plugged in here and there to try to please everyone, the only hope is that the secular media will run with it and force, let us say shame the bishops into finally standing up and demanding what Canon Law and the Church have always taught. One who persists in sin must not receive the sacraments for by doing so he not only places his own soul in mortal jeopardy, but causes great scandal. And in case the bishops haven't been boning up on their Bible lately I remind them what Our Lord says about one who causes scandal:

Yes, we know that it would be better for the one causing scandal that a mill-stone be hung about his neck and he were cast into the depths of the sea than to scandalize Christ's little ones. No wonder Saint Athanasius and Saint John Chrysostom echoed the sentiments that "the floor of hell is paved with the skulls of rotten bishops." That was the Arian Heresy of the fourth and fifth century. Today we have the mother of all heresies in Modernism and it has run amok. One can just imagine, even though so many don't believe in it, that hell must be getting mighty crowded. I am afraid the latest tome out of modern Rome is not going to diminish the vacancy rate down there. Meanwhile the die-hard stubborn VaticantwoArians only make it hell on earth for Catholics by depriving them of the true nourishment, the true antidote from the malaise that has so emaciated the Mystical Body of Christ.

   If it sounds like a duck and looks like a duck, it's still a duck and these continuous lets-try-to-get-it-right documents out of modern Rome are just more bogus prescriptions that are really only placebos for a cancer that can't be cured by quacks!
