Our Trust Has Been Betrayed!
The hierarchical dogs of denial and destruction continue to stand sentinel at the base of the decaying roots of Vatican II as the bad tree continues to crumble from the corrupted sap of sin and scandal. Yet, the wardens of wickedness continue to try to shove the rotting post-conciliar fruits down our collective throats.
In an attempt to stay ahead of the curve, I am writing my editorial on the cusp of the joyful feast of Saint Joseph the Worker and Saint Athanasius, the "Apostle of Tradition." Yet there is little to be joyful about when one considers the events of this day and age. In the Philippines several were killed, numerous others seriously wounded while celebrating a Roman Catholic procession honoring the spouse of the Mother of God. Even worse, in that very spot where good Joseph bravely guided his young, chaste and very pregnant immaculate spouse on a cold December night to usher into this world the Prince of Peace - Jesus Christ - mayhem and hate now abound. On that very spot where earthly kings rightly submitted to Christ the King there is now rebellion by His subjects everywhere. A holocaust of heresy and hate have replaced the Hosannas of 2000 plus years ago.

As I watch the news, read the papers, e-mails I sense ever more, especially when in prayer, that the Apocalypse is indeed near. Man has usurped God everywhere. Excellent articles coming this week in The DAILY CATHOLIC give clear evidence of this, beginning with Dr. Tom Droleskey's two-part Christ or Chaos column tomorrow and Thursday on why there will never be peace in Bethlehem, Jerusalem, anywhere in the Holy Land, the Middle East, the entire world! It all goes back to the bad tree which cannot yield good fruit (cf. Mt 7: 17-20).
I can't help but think about the corruption and deception of the post-conciliar Church as playing a major role of responsibility for these tragic events. Today we complete Atila Sinke Guimar„es ' blockbuster expose of yet another heresy of Modern Rome - that the Jews are justified in rejecting Christ. This is all a calculated plot, folks, to totally collapse Holy Mother Church and it is being done from within!
For too long Catholics have stood silent as our beloved Faith is systematically being demolished by the Freemasons and Kabalists within the structure of the Church today. I for one am fed up with the entire coddling of and compromising with Judaism and with false religions, while those who strive to live as true Roman Catholics are ostracized because they don't go along with the auto-demolition. Having studied what Modern Rome says and what Eternal Rome says I have always found the Society of St. Pius X to be in total accord with Eternal Rome. Yet, if one listens to neo-Catholics they might be led to believe that the SSPX or Lefebrvists, as they are sometimes jeeringly referred to, are in "schism." Really? How? The facts are the Society is the one visible Roman Catholic institution that can be trusted these days. The only one! Can you name any others? I thought not.
It is all about trust. For years we have trusted and been betrayed. Imagine how you might feel if you discovered that your parents whom you had trusted as long as you can remember, had been lying to you all along. You would be devastated. Some might say you would almost be better to go on living the lie than to have to face the stark realization of the consequences of those lies. But to go on living the lie, what is accomplished? Only the inevitable: making it harder to attain eternal salvation.
That is why The DAILY CATHOLIC strives so to inform the reader of the Truths and Traditions of Holy Mother Church because you're not getting it from Modern Rome. What you're getting from Modern Rome is something that has trickled down to the parish level in so many ways. For want of a better word, let's call it "Clintonism." That moniker is so appropriate for not only was our former president a blatant liar, but his morals were, well... let's say amoral. Is there any difference between Bill Clinton and those in the hierarchy today? Unfortunately, no. Many lie, cheat, steal and rape our souls...and, as has been so evident in the last month, sodomize young men and lie about that as well. That sounds harsh, but sadly it's the truth.
Folks, we have been pillaged and plundered since 1958. No one is the better for it. We were lied to from the get-go after the death of Pope Pius XII. The more we research, the more we have discovered the sad truths that John XXIII was the gateway for Modernism and the Masonic creed of liberty, fraternity, and equality. Maybe you recognize it better as religious liberty, humanism and ecumenism. The terms roll off the tongue so readily today: "People of God, brotherhood of man, solidarity, dialogue, tolerance, diversity, globalization, community, unity, peace, social justice, new evangelization, new springtime" ad nausea.
First we were lied to about who was the true successor of Papa Pacelli. Folks, it wasn't Angelo Roncalli. But that's another story altogether which we will delve into in later commentaries. We were also lied to about the traditions not being tampered with. Then we were lied to about how the Church spoke out so against Communism. While speaking with fork tongue Papa John was arranging the notorious Pact of Metz carried out in detail by his pope-in-training Giovanni Montini. The same who betrayed countless bishops and priests behind the iron curtain by revealing the secret list of clerics to the atheists of the hammer and sickle. Yes, the same one who would go on to be called Paul VI. A man who, by several accounts was not a virtuous man from his seminary days on, who should not have been ordained a priest or a bishop, let alone a cardinal and then a pope. In truth, folks, he wormed his way into Vatican circles to eventually attain the prize the Masons had envisioned for him to carry out their auto-demolition agenda. Oh, he was a successor of the Apostles alright - the Apostle Judas. More reasons why Pius XII never elevated him to the cardinalate. Any wonder then why there are so many problems today with a hierarchy, which Christopher Ferrara calls the "Gay Gestapo"? It is not about holiness, but power, money, self-gratification - men who are more Sauls than Pauls - with no backbone to stand for Christ, to truly be successors of the Apostles. Pathetic, but true!
We were lied to about the new liturgy, about changes in the sacraments, and the fact that Montini allowed and promoted all that Martin Luther and John Calvin called for and more. The apostasy was complete but few knew. And those few who knew were drowned out by the concerted manipulations and intimidations of the enemy within. There were several cardinals and bishops who, for fear of "upsetting the applecart" or because they feared for their lives, or for various other reasons which they might have a difficult time explaining to our Lord on Judgment Day, did not speak out when their influence might have staved off the destruction. Many abandoned Cardinal Alfredo Ottaviani when he rightly stood in resistance to the Novus Ordo. Such is the intimidation of the power brokers and promise keepers (or is that power keepers and promise breakers?) within the hallowed halls of Vatican City. One archbishop, one, stood strong and for over 20 years Modern Rome stonewalled, persecuted, maligned and slandered Msgr. Marcel Lefebvre until all they could do was pull out the trump card in frustration because he was too orthodox. His punishment for being too orthodox, for being loyal to all Holy Mother Church has always taught and adhering to all the absolutes and disciplines without exception? Why excommunication of course.
Trust? Are we to trust a regime of Modern Rome where every heresy imaginable is being spewed and taught in Catholic schools and parishes and going unchecked? Are we to trust a regime where sin is rationalized and perversion justified? Are we to trust a regime where the ranks of holy men and women have been so depleted by compromise and relaxation of moral and doctrinal disciplines? Are we to trust a regime who are caught in their own lies about the Third Secret of Fatima? Then, to make it even worse and cover up further, they throw their full artillery at one man? That one man is Father Nicholas Gruner who is not afraid to call Modern Rome to task for their grave error and failure to carry through Heaven's request. Meanwhile, with the 85th anniversary of the first apparition of Fatima a week away, they continue the charade. I encourage you to read Part One and Part Two of "Chronology of a Cover-up" to understand the depth of the deception. The Vatican has made it about as easy for Fr. Gruner to be granted his priestly faculties as a flamingo trying to survive in Siberia.
Trust? Are we to trust a regime of Modern Rome who have allowed our beautiful churches to be ransacked and
systematically destroyed in the same fashion as the wreckovation of Machabees? Truly "the People is Baal." Are we to trust a regime that has apologized for carrying out Christ's command in Mark 16: 15-16? Are we to trust a regime that has apologized for sins that aren't sins and covered-up or ignored things that are sins? Are we to trust a regime that is anathema with statements of ecumenism and who brazenly diminish the Truths and Traditions of the Church Christ founded for the sake of unity of man - for the sake of preparing the One World Order fashioned by the Masonic creed? Are we to trust a regime that has more skeletons in its 44-year-old closet than Imelda Marcos had shoes? Lie after lie after lie. Sorry, we can't buy any more.
And what of the American cardinals and bishops who have stumbled all over their collective cassocks to get their stories straight? Sad isn't it? As I've said before, can a group of Ph.D's and S.T.D.'s and Doctors of Divinity be that dumb?
And if indeed they are, then who appointed them? Yep, it all comes back to trust. And if they are not as stupid as they seem when they each open their mouths, then they are what we have suspected for some time: crafty, dangerous, very dangerous wolves in sheepherders' clothing. It's one or the other. Either way it's time for them to go.
Catholics today, who are wandering fruitlessly in the barren desert of this post-conciliar mess, need to realize the only exodus out of this terrible malaise is by returning to the Truths and Traditions that sustained the Mystical Body of Christ for two millennia. You won't find it in the Novus Ordo "Eucharistic celebrations" no matter how reverent you might think they are. As Father James Wathen has doctrinally and dogmatically proved in his landmark work The Great Sacrilege , the fullness of the Holy Sacrifice cannot be found in the 'Pauline Mass'...no matter how hard one tries. It is a novelty and experiment that went horribly awry and is destined, as Our Lord assures, to "be cast into the fire" (Mt 7: 19) for "by their fruits you shall know them" (Mt 7: 20).
The implosion of Modern Rome wasn't what most expected during the reign of Pius XII. America had gained great prestige from their masterful role in World War II. They had become a superpower globally. Back home convents were teeming with dedicated, pious nuns who did the yeomen work in the Catholic schools and parishes. Vocations for both boys and girls were at an all-time high. Respect for authority was a given. I can remember back in Sister Honorata's (Bless her holy soul!) third grade class how, despite her strictness and attention to detail, she loved us with Christ-like love and cared for each and every one of us. She wasn't concerned, nor were our parents or other administrators about diversity, solidarity, dialogue. That was a time of innocence, of trust; well before the age of political correctness - a time which correlates with the lack of trust.
When I ask what happened to those times, those times every loyal Catholic longs to return to, I usually get a curt 'you can't live in the past.' I beg your pardon, but if you are Catholic you live in the past and that is not a bad thing. You live by the Truths and Traditions passed down from the past. If they were good enough for the early Christians in the catacombs and coliseums, if they were good enough for medieval Christendom, if they were good enough for Catholics who fled from persecution during the English ransacking of the papists and during the French Revolution, if they were good enough for our ancestors who literally built stone by stone, brick by brick,
the beautiful churches in every town and neighborhood with convents, rectories and sufficient schools as well, then why weren't they good enough for these times?
You won't get a straight answer to that. Oh, you'll get answers but not the truth. The truth is had the hierarchy continued on the holy path established by one of the holiest of Sovereign Pontiffs Pope Saint Pius X we wouldn't be in this mess we're in today and I do mean mess. After all it was Papa Sarto who gave us the Oath Against Modernism and that excellent blueprint Pascendi Dominici Gregis for assuring all could avoid this dangerous heresy. His predecessors Pope Pius IX and Pope Leo XIII had alerted us to the growing curse of the hammer and sickle casting a darker shadow across the land. Leo gave us the protective Prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel - a powerful intercession that was said universally in the vernacular after every Mass everywhere in the world for so many decades. Yet, inexplicably, it was abolished after Vatican II. You tell me who to trust.
How many realize that Leo knew exactly what was on the horizon in the latter part of the 20th century? Through the revelation that inspired the Prayer to the Heavenly warrior, Leo also received the words that were dropped from the main prayer but are available in The Raccolta, 12th edition, in 1935 from Langdon, Burns, Oates and Washbourne. When you read the following, you will see why it has been suppressed because it foretold exactly what has happened:
"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 the abominable impiety, with the iniquitous design that when the Pastor has been struck, the sheep may be shattered."
Consider those words and realize that is exactly what has happened during these past 40 years. Now Modern Rome will go into the spin zone that the 'Pastor has been struck' means John Paul II being shot on May 13, 1981 in St. Peter's Square as more pulp fiction of the Third Secret of Fatima. Don't you believe it. Remember, it's all about trust. How can you trust a regime that has perfected the lie?
Dr. Marian Horvat tells us in her excellent book Our Lady of Good Success - Prophecies for our Times on pages 54 through 59, how the Blessed Mother warned us back in 1634 in Quito, Ecuador when she imparted to a humble nun Mother Mariana de Jesus Torres y Berriochoa the five meanings of the extinguished Sanctuary Light that would occur in these times. The Light represents the Light of Faith. The first was that heresies of every kind would spread throughout the land, especially in the Americas and only "a small number of souls who, hidden, will preserve the treasure of the Faith and practice virtue." Our Lady conveyed that, "To test this faith and confidence of the just, there will be occasions when all will seem to be lost and paralyzed. This, then, will be the happy beginning of the complete restoration." What hope because right now things look pretty bleak universally for the Church, if you strive to uphold the Truths and Traditions by attending the True Mass of the Roman Rite you can get pretty discouraged, 'lost and paralyzed.' Marian equates those who will fight to keep the Light of Faith alive as those whom Saint Louis-Marie Grignion de Montfort refers to as the Apostles of the End Times.
The second meaning refers to sensuality and worldly influence that "Many authentic vocations would perish because of the lack of discretion, discernment and prudence in their professions and spiritual guidance." Boy, was Our Lady right on about that! Look how seminaries have disintegrated since the mid-sixties. To see what they have become today, I'd recommend Michael Rose's shocking revelations in his book Goodbye! Good Men!. Because of the explosive content that exposes not only the corruption in the Catholic hierarchy but the whole sordid agenda of the sodomites, the liberal media has ignored his book like the plague.
The Blessed Virgin Mary realized this because the third meaning is exactly about the
continued perversion in the world where "because of the spirit of impurity that will permeate the atmosphere during these times. Like a filthy ocean, it will run through the streets, squares and public places with an astonishing liberty. There will be almost no virgin souls in the world."
This would and has permeated to the clergy because they have compromised so much from the top on down through acceptance of the Masonic creed which, "having infiltrated all the social classes, would subtly introduce its teaching into domestic ambiences in order to corrupt the children, and the demon would glory in nourishing himself upon the exquisite delicacy of the hearts of children." Oh, has that happened or what?! San Diego Police just arrested Paul Shanley, a former priest who is one of the originators of NAMBLA, one of the most perverse groups on the face of this planet. For those who have been visiting some other planet, the acronym stands for North American Man Boy Love Association. Sick, huh? Really sick. Yet, Cardinal Bernard Law heaped praise on Shanley, covered up for him and even pawned him off on the unsuspecting Diocese of San Bernardino. Talk about sick. And we're supposed to trust men like Law?
Our Lady has the answer to that as she foretold Mother Mariana, "the secular clergy will leave much to be desired because priests will become careless in their sacred duties. Lacking the divine compass, they will stray from the road traced by God for the priestly ministry, and they will become attached to wealth and riches, which they will unduly strive to obtain." She was right on about that. Just check your headlines and check the ledgers of their expense accounts, their high-life lifestyle, and the mansions these prelates and pastors live in for the most part. The consequences? Blessed Mary warned us: "How the Church will suffer during this dark night! Lacking a prelate and father to guide them with paternal love, gentleness, strength, wisdom and prudence, many priests will lose their spirit, placing their souls in great danger."
Has this not happened to so many who have embraced the heresies of ecumenism, humanism and the social gospel of modernism? Has this not happened to so many souls because of the abandonment of the eternal sacrifice with the blasphemous Novus Ordo that directly defies what the holy and infallible Council of Trent set in stone? Literally the Sanctuary Light has been extinguished in the great majority of churches which call themselves 'Catholic' today for Our Lord has been removed and in His place, in place of the Tabernacle which holds the Holy of Holies, is placed a chair for man and banners galore. Read the Book of Machabees to see the parallel to the end of the eternal sacrifice in the Old Testament - the abomination of desolation foretold by Daniel and what has happened since Vatican II - the same abomination of desolation. No difference, no difference whatsoever! As for the Masonic agenda and the Kabalistic path, well that's another entire editorial and more coming later. Stay tuned.
The fifth and final meaning of the extinguished Sanctuary Light is the indifference, the lukewarmness of the faithful who allowed this destruction to happen right before their very eyes. Recall the Lord's shocking revelation in Apocalypse 3: 16, "But because thou art lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will begin to vomit thee out of My mouth." Strong words and each of us must ask if we're in that category. Are we lukewarm? We are if we sit idly by and let the auto-demolition of our beloved Church continue. We are if we buy into all the false fruits of the social agendas of this regime and attend the Novus Ordo Mass. We are if we criticize Traditionalists without any kind of documentation that they are wrong (which they are not) and just brush them aside because 'you don't like the direction they are going' or they 'are in schism' because they won't blindly follow a heretic pope. Saint Athanasius knew that same kind of lukewarmness and the resistance of the hierarchy to truth. The great majority in his time had been so hoodwinked by the Arian heresy that most of the bishops and clergy were totally in apostasy and few knew it. Sound familiar? It should because that is where we find ourselves today, folks. The heresies of ecumenism, humanism and modernism permeate our parishes, priories, deaneries, chanceries, bishoprics, and, yes, papal palace. So are we to sit still and allow it to continue? Can you say 'lukewarm'? I, for one, do not wish to be expectorated from God's mouth into eternal perdition. Therefore, we will stand boldly and proudly with Athanasius in proclaiming the Truths and Traditions always no matter the fallout, no matter the opposition.
Dr. Horvat relates that the fifth meaning "is due to the laxity and the negligence of those who possess great wealth who will indifferently stand by and witness the Church being oppressed, virtue being persecuted, and the triumph of the demon, without piously employing their riches for the destruction of this evil and the restoration of the Faith." Oh, how true that is. How many could come forward to help fund chapels and churches that seek to remain loyal to all Holy Mother Church teaches in doctrine and liturgy. How many could help financially to house good, holy priests who strive to carry out their mission as true shepherds. Have you noticed how many of those are quick to respond to the apostate bishops' causes and funds such as the building funds in Milwaukee and Los Angeles where sacrosanct churches have been replaced by mausoleums of monstrosity that resemble more a Masonic temple than a Catholic church? Come to think of it, the vast majority of 'Catholic' churches today resemble Masonic halls rather than God's houses. For more on this, I refer you to my editorials Introibo ad altare Dei; non ad altare hominis! I will go in unto the Altar of God; not to the altar of man! and "The New Mass is the Real Destruction of the Roman Rite!" and Unsound Doctrine and the Yoke of Blind Obedience .
Two centuries after Quito Blessed Mary conveyed an even more dire warning at La Salette. I refer you to the most recent piece on Our Lady of La Salette entitled A La Salette Travelogue - Have we arrived at the Final Undoing?
Next week I will continue in this same vein as we examine other warning signs from Heaven that make it all the more obvious what has happened to our beloved Church today and what we need to do to stop the slide. It begins with each one of us carrying our Faith to all, not being afraid to stand up and proudly say "I am a Roman Catholic." We don't have to make excuses for the sorry prelates who embarrass us daily with their doublespeak and denials, contradictions and ambiguity that leave so many flustered, frustrated and confused. As we can see from Heavenly warnings, up to now most Catholics have put their trust in men who are, in truth, leading them further away from the True Faith. If you are one of those who has placed blind obedience in these clerics of all colors of the cloth, then you have to realize it now rather than later. No matter how comfortable you might think you are in the 'feel-good' Novus Ordo, it might not seem as comfortable when you find yourself sliding pell-mell on the slippery slope to perdition. Putting on the brakes now and making a U-turn away from the post-conciliar Church, which is anathema sit, will make steering toward eternal life much easier.
Jesus asks us to trust in Him. Do you? Do you trust what Our Lady has conveyed and what's been approved by the True Church? Do you trust what the perennial, infallible Magisterium of Eternal Rome has passed down in the Sacred Deposit of the Faith? Or are you still trusting in men who have shown through their word, deed and track record they cannot be trusted? Fool me once, okay; fool me twice, no way!
We must join St. Athanasius and, as 'Apostles of the End Times', stand as one contra mundum and flee from the bad fruit, the bad tree Jesus refers to. You must know the consequences of clinging to Vatican II because Heaven has revealed in both Public and private revelation that it is definitely a 'bad tree.' The stench confirms the obvious. Do you still trust those modernists who've betrayed your trust, or will you finally trust those who've adhered to the Divine Will and, like Athanasius, stand against the world and preserve the True Faith? If you stubbornly persist on following the trust-breakers, then you might ask if you aren't barking up the wrong tree for truly our trust has been betrayed!
