During our active Summer Mode this year we'll be presenting each day an outstanding column from our excellent array of contributing writers past and present that remain just as pertinent today as when they were written, in many cases even moreso considering the course of events over the last few years and the realization of the truths that were applied by our writers. Today we present in the fifth of our summer-long series one of the many poignant columns provided by John Gregory. The one we've chosen today is the one John wrote in sharing with readers his own personal journey out of the shackles of the Novus Ordo lodges and free from the confines of the counterfeit church of conciliarism, free from the apostasy that has been running rampant over the last four decades. He shares that if he could see the light, others should be able to as welll.
The conciliar church is the naked church. There are millions of stories of those who cling to a new institution which cannot see that their emperor is not wearing any clothes. This is just one of those stories of one who had the courage to go against the grain, to upset the apple cart, and cry out to the blind-obedience robots of the Novus Ordo Village what is so obvious: You're going the wrong way!
John Gregory files an account of his own personal journey to Truth. He hopes that by sharing the obstacles and questions he faced, others will have the courage to get up out of their rut and challenge those who cannot give honest answers. As long as those in the conciliar church continue to be mindless robots blindly obeying whatever they're told, they will not realize they are being greatly deceived and their own salvation in peril. The path John took parallels many others who have discovered what was wrong and got off their duffs because they valued the welfare of their souls. It is a difficult journey, a lonely one, and one that leads inevitably back to the catacombs where the Truths and Traditions remain the same for the truth can never be altered and never has been or will be at the Altars where the True Latin Mass is said. John presents his candid account of The Journey to Truth
This Apostle of Salamanca was renowned for his love for the Holy Eucharist which was made manifest by God allowing St. John of San Facundo to see Jesus in the flesh, Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity when confecting the Sacrament at Holy Mass.
Today is the Double Feast of the holy confessor Saint John of San Facundo. He was born at St. Facundus in Spain, and belonged to the Augustinian Order. He was distinguished for his devotion during holy Mass; he loved peace-making and brought an end to a civil war among the factions in Salamanca. He died June 11, 1470. There can be also a commemoration of the holy martyrs
Saints Basilides, Cyrinus, Nabor and Nazarius who all were Christian soldiers in the Roman army of Maxentius. They were beheaded by order of Aurelius, the prefect of Rome in ----. For more on these saints honored on June 12, see Saint John of San Facundo
The Roman historian Tertullian said, 'From the Blood of the Martyrs come the seeds of Christianity' and indeed martyrdom has become a lost art thanks to the homogonized compromise consciousness of the conciliar church. If only more realized that from the loving lactose of martydom come unending, pure graces flowing like milk and honey over souls. Need we say more? Got Milk?
We hear a lot about martyrdom which doesn't seem to phase the Modernists today. To the conciliar church it is not about suffering for souls, but rather establishing "peace and justice" in a temporal world that will end. Thus we present Gabriel Garnica's excellent piece first presented in early November of 2005 on martyrdom. In it he outlined the three truths of martyrdom. There are close to 2000 canonized saints and yet the holy martyrs who gave their lives for Christ in the first three centuries number close to 11 million or more. Those martyred for the Faith went straight to Heaven to join the Church Triumphant. They are an inspiration to every Catholic and Gabriel pointed out that we should pay attention because with the situation the way it is today, it could very well not be if we might suffer martyrdom for the Faith, but when and how. Traditional Catholics are well aware of the Dry Martyrdom they undergo in keeping the Faith in the face of abuse, slander and other kinds of mental and even physical persecution. In his artile, Gabriel lists the various kinds of martyrdom and if we are not willing to carry our cross all the way to Calvary, we cannot be His disciples. Gabriel explained in his column The Milk of Martyrdom
Has anyone ever realized why Mary has been seen weeping by visionaries? Could it be because they have strayed so far from her divine Son? Could it also be that she cries because so many souls are heading to perdition?
On the feast of Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal, Cyndi Cain reaches ahead sixteen years to 1846 to share the significance of the apparition of Our Lady of LaSalette. The Blessed Mother's Church-approved message has been, for the most part, hidden and dismissed by operatives of the counterfeit church of conciliarism. Cyndi points out how, from early in the 19th Century, Heaven provided all the help necessary to stave off the Great Apostasy and still we didn't listen. From the Miraculous Medal to our Lady's copious tears to the Sun spinning it would seem man has been deaf and dumb to all Heaven has warned. Now we face exactly what our laxity has asked for: Rome has lost the faith and become the seat of the antichrist. Will we continue in the perilous path or turn back to God before it is too late? Have we not learned from the mistakes of the Jews of the Old Testament, even when we have the powerful aid of God's Own Mother to guide us? Our Lady of Perpetual Help is perpetually trying to help. The problem lies with those she's seeking to protect and warn. Cyndi shares why, at LaSalette, Our Lady Wept for a Reason
Though a blur to most, and snuck in so seditiously and secretly at Vatican II by none other than Fr. Joseph Ratzinger, what subsisted in Lumen Gentium caused the spark of aggiornamento and ecumenism that has raged into a holocaust of souls, responsible for the scorched faith of billions for well over four decades.
Because of its vital importance, we bring you this benchmark masterpiece by Griff Ruby so that you may revisit again or read for the first time all he has presented. To so many this piece presents one of the greatest arguments to expose the very point of how, when, what, where, who and especially why modern Rome broke away from Eternal Rome. We have compiled his six-part installments into one compendium that ran as one back in September 2005 so you can see all the components and nuances and undeniable facts that prove Griff's point. The title itself best describes the subterfuge as Griff takes us past the spin right through the skin to the bare bones and then fleshes out what really happened in 1964. Griff lays it all out in his series we've entitled for this issue Down the Yellow Brick Road to Apostasy: The Lumen Gentium Syndrome
