"Qui legit, intelligat"|
In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for Quinquagesima Sunday, he stresses the importance of staying the course as he reminds us of today's Epistle in which the Apostle Paul references a mirror in reflecting what is truth and what is a mirage. The truths handed down for nearly 2000 years have been blurred by the flimsy film that covers the mirror into which Novus Ordinarian Catholics glance at today. While they see themselves as doing just fine and good Catholics if they are inclusive and tolerant of their neighbor, regardless of his sins, then they will be garbed in the white garment of grace and attain Heaven with little effort. In truth this mirror, as Holy Mother Church has always taught, is distorted like a circus mirror that doesn't provide a true image of a person's soul. Father points out how the Church has always safeguarded the Sacred Deposit of the Faith in all ages of heresies and today is no different; in fact far worse because of the great numbers who have been deceived. As John Paul II lays in a hospital bed, Father asks what accountability will be demanded, especially in light of the fact he did not take the Papal Oath demanded of every Sovereign Pontiff since St. Agatho. The present pope has been living in an Alice in Wonderland world, out of touch with reality and definitely out of touch with solid doctrine, seeking to establish new thrill rides like "the New Springtime" and the "Globalization Gallop" to hide the fact that it is all a facade and not what is reflected in the mirror of truth. Father concludes with a poem by the great G.K. Chesterton who reminds and remands us all to prepare for battle, to prepare for the worst for it must needs get darker before the Light will shine through. Father explains in his sermon Through the Glass Darkly
While Zenit has provided puff pieces throughout this past week on the events that happened late on the eve of the Purification, the Inside The Vatican Staff has compiled the inside story which magnifies the resistance John Paul II has consistently shown toward common sense and doing what is right. Despite warnings that he should go to the hospital, he stubbornly resisted until it was almost too late. Likewise, despite warnings that the New Order church - which he rules and which is built on the heresies of Vatican II - is imploding and there are no fruits in accordance with Matthew 7: 15-20, because of Matthew 24: 15, he obstinately insists on plunging souls further into the abyss and away from Christ's True Church even, it sadly looks, to the bitter end. But before that fateful moment comes, will Karol Wojtyla heed what the Holy Ghost has been trying to say? Will he also go away just as Our Lord queried the Apostles? Inside The Vatican provides some interesting points.
"Ten Minutes Later, He Would Have Been Gone"
Gabriel Garnica sets the table for this weekend's over-hyped festivities in Jacksonville by presenting a soul-saving perspective of what really is important and how sports has become a religion unto itself. Rather than falling in with all the rest of the mindless minions who will go whichever way the world sways them, Gabriel points out that for all those rooting for the Eagles or the Patriots on Super Bowl Sunday, it's not life and death. Yet, life and death is the issue regarding rooting and supporting the team that rejects ecumenism, modernism and all other isms in order to be true to the Head Coach - Jesus Christ. Hell is for eternal losers, Heaven for loyal winners who paid the price by living as authentic true Catholics in every sense. Naturally, that is what makes it 'Super' as in Supernatural! He explains in his column Religion, Sports and Ecumenism
The Straight Stuff
Griff Ruby presents the first part of "What is your picture" as he retraces the steps leading up to where Modern Rome broke away from Eternal Rome. He illustrates how during the pontificate of John XXIII no one suspected heresy even as it was being formed within the revised schemas of Vatican II. Even during the reign of Paul VI few realized the defection from the Faith when Montini bowed to the demonic UN as the hope of the people, thus forsaking the one source of Hope - Holy Mother Church. In effect, Paul VI was abdicating his authority as head of the only visible institution Christ deigned for salvation, by giving credence to a false entity - basically mammon. Why is it so few realize this? Griff goes into the dangerous precedent set in Lumen Gentium on which hinges the new church of Vatican II - separate from the Roman Catholic Church founded by Christ. He details in Part One of What is your picture?
Making Sense of Sensus Catholicus
We are pleased to be able to share another letter from Father James F. Wathen, pioneering traditional author of The Great Sacrilege. In a follow-up to what we presented last week on How the Jews Changed Catholic Thinking, we present this timely piece by Father Wathen in which he points out that, outside of divine intervention, no one should hold out hope that we will have a truly Catholic Pope coming out of the next Conclave - at least in the near future - for those who are called cardinal - have basically all sold out and apostasized from the True Faith through heresy, jeopardizing their very souls for all eternity. Sadly, the vast majority are so dumbed-down and anesthetized that they cannot see the onrushing flood that will swamp souls, plunging them into hell. Father explains in Part One of his short essay sent by Maria Hughes. A Catholic Pope
