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 second of our summer-long series the groundbreaking work by Griff Ruby on Lumen Gentium as the definitive fizzure of when the conciliar church broke away from the Catholic Church.
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
Honoring two blood brothers for shedding their blood and a holy abbot who converted the Scots
There is a commemoration in today's Feria Mass of two holy martyrs and blood brothers Saints Primus and Felician. Born into wealth, they enjoyed the finest of Rome but were converted later in their lives through the influence of Pope Felix I. At elderly ages they were both persecuted and executed under the brutality of the Roman Emperor Diocletian. Felicianus was nailed by his hands and feet to a post and left without food or water for three days; Primus was beaten with clubs and burnt with torches. God spared them amidst these tortures, and wild beasts in an arena imitated their God’s mercy. Finally, they were beheaded on June 9, 286. It is also the historical feast of the holy abbot Saint Columba or Columcille, apostle to the Picts of Scotland who founded numerous monasteries in the north and deeded the island of Iona. For more on Columba and the two holy martyred brothers some two centuries before Columcille's evangelization in north Briton, see Sts. Primus and Felician
A true fisher of men would never weaken his net by weaving it with anything but the strong hemp of grace and virtue and the uncompromising fiber of the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church. Dialogue and Compromise weaken the strands of faith and unravel in the face of turbulence, causing countless souls to become prey to the infernal predators of the deep.
In Father Louis Campbell's sermon for the Fourth Sunday After Pentecost, he speaks of today's Gospel and points to the very difference between those 'caught in Peter's net' - those souls who have been landed for Christ by true 'fishers of men' - and those who refuse to listen to the Word of God and swim in their own current of thought where they create torrents of agitation and upset the schools of men, mucking up the waters so much that the True Barque of Peter, sailing the waters of the world and trolling the inviting 'net of salvation' for all to see the infallible truths of the perennial Magisterium of the Church, has been attacked by the barnacles of false doctrine on the surface while beneath the sharks of compromise and dialogue have gnawed away at the webbing of the net, causing more souls to be loosened from the salvific netting and doomed to the denizens of the deep - bait for lucifer and his legions. Father points out how one who should be scoping the waters to make sure the predators are kept at a safe distance, has instead allowed the prey to weaken the hull and sabotage the nets through the obvious contradictions of conciliar 'popes' and now Benedict XVI's own heresy, which is obvious in light of what the Sacred Scriptures and St. Ambrose teach that those who do not recognize Christ as the Admiral of the true ship are shipwrecked on the sands of dissolution. This refers especially to the Jews who long ago abandoned ship. Now, according to the conciliarists, it is time to compromise Christ and His teachings for the sake of not offending the sensibilities of man. This is outright mutiny and Christ teaches us to wipe the dust from our sandals and leave them to the fishes. Our Lord has also acknowledged that 'many are called, few chosen.' Those who are chosen and remain loyal are those who, through grace and as Jesus Christ intended, have been
Caught in Peter's Net
Tempest in a Teampot: Mama mia, Italian conciliarists much more clever and cunning in concealing sodomite pedophilia and the conciliar Modernist Vatican is well aware of the cover up.
Atila Sinke Guimarăes delves beneath the rhetoric to reveal the facts that the conciliar hierarchy in Italy is a tempest of tenacity and terror in harming souls as bad as America's sorry lot of potentates posing as bishops, albeit even posturing that they are 'Catholic.' We know from Catholic truth that they cannot possibly be by their actions and our Lord's stern remander in St. Luke 17: 2. He shows that it's not just an 'American problem' but a conciliar-wide problem in concert with the bad tree Christ refers to in St. Matthew 7: 15-20 The difference, as Atila points out in his most recent piece on TIA, is the fact that the Italian press and civic authorities can be bought off and do not possess the tenacity of the voracious media in the U.S. Nevertheless, the same criminal acts continue to be committed, raping innocent bodies and souls of their innocence. Woe be unto those who have allowed it from BeneRatz down. Atila lays out the evidence and devastation in his article Priestly Pedophilia Concealed in Italy
A Fishing Expedition for the Ages...All Ages for All Ages
To enhance each Sunday's Epistle and Gospel we present this special feature provided by John Gregory with the Haydock Commentary found at the bottom of each page of the Douay-Rheims Bible. We publish it here in conjunction with the Epistle and Gospel for the Sunday Mass, with the cogent comprehensive Catholic Commentary penned by Father George Leo Haydock. Today for the Fourth Sunday after Pentecost, the theme is those creatures swimming in the sea of fallen human nature in this world and who can only be rescued through the grace of God via those He has sent to reel in souls as fishers of men. St. Peter is the chief fishermen and, despite his temerity, our Lord knew the mettle of the man He tabbed to head His Church on earth and had no compuntion in commanding His disciples to "launch out into the deep" for souls, not fish as we see in Fr. Haydock's cogent comments for the Fourth Sunday after Pentecost Haydock Commentary
