"Even if we or an angel from Heaven should preach a Gospel to you other than that which we have preached to you, let him be anathema."
These are the chief marks of the Church. One means that Christ intended His Church to be One; therefore the True Church must be One and its members united in doctrine, worship and in government. It was Jesus Who said in Mark 3: 24, "If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand. and also in John 10:16, "There shall be one fold and one shepherd." The second mark is Holy and in order to be holy it must teach a holy doctrine in faith and morals because its Founder is holy. He made it mandatory that His Church provide the means for its members to lead a holy life through the Sacraments and graces granted. In John 17: 17-19, Our Lord said, "Sanctify them in truth. Thy word is truth. Even as Thou hast sent Me into the world, so I also have sent them into the world. And for them I sanctify Myself, that they may be sanctified in truth." Catholic means "universal." Christ intended His Church to be universal when He dispensed His disciples in Matthew 28:19, "Go, therefore, and make disciples of all nations." Jesus asserted that His Church would be propagated by His Apostles and the doctrine and traditions of His hand-chosen group would be handed down intact as He affirmed to Peter in Matthew 16: 18 and Saint Paul confirmed this in Ephesians 2: 20 when he said that the Church is "built upon the foundation of the Apostles."
Those who are not willing to follow the directives of the chief marks of the Church are not in union with Rome and therefore not in union with Jesus. This includes those who call themselves "Catholic" but, in reality, are not. Therefore, the next obvious question is: Is a Schism on the horizon? The answer is no, it's already here! But it can be mitigated, as we mentioned above, if we pray and are obedient to Christ's true Vicar on earth - Pope John Paul II. In the next installment we will continue with exposing the schism that threatenes to do great harm to our Holy Church and remove our beloved pontiff. We will also site prophesies that verify this.
We are hopeful all the rest of the bishops will be in unison toward this movement back to meatless Fridays because it is the right thing to do. In the Diocese of Dallas, after the shocking trial last summer regarding the sexual abuse case of former priest Rudy Kos, the Bishop Charles V. Grahmann implored his constituents and parishioners within his diocese to go on a one year fast of meatless Fridays in reparation for the sins committed and in prayerful hope healing would come. More bishops need to divert their attention away from the administrative politics of their chanceries, close their ears to the squeaky wheel liberals and open their eyes and ears to those who are truly loyal to all that is synomymous with the Roman Catholic Church. This is one of the great concerns of Mrs. Brown who alerts us that the bishops passing this this spring is not a fait accomplis. She ambitiously is aiming to reach ten million Catholic households and accrue as many pledges as possible toward commitment from the faithful to meatless Fridays for the specific purposes of fasting and praying to end the "culture of death." Bishop James T. McHugh from Camden, New Jersey, who was a member of the Vatican delegation that moved the Cairo conference to reject mandatory population control through abortion, remarked that "Political and public relations efforts to replace the 'culture of death' with a 'culture of life' will not succeed without a spiritual component - prayer and fasting." Mrs. Brown goes even further, stating "This may well be our last chance to avert total moral collapse in America!" Those are strong words but so true. She expresses fears that this proposal will get lost in the shuffle of parliamentarianism where it will be studied but by the time it is brought before the full body of bishops for a vote this June it could very well have been watered down so that it will have lost its impact and what God truly wants. Bishop McHugh echoes this possibility and is openly lobbying for it among his fellow bishops, claiming "The problem is that if there is no specific discipline, everyone forgets and nothing penitential takes place." That is a very good point for if left up to each individual or by diocese you know what the outcome would be. There would be a faithful remnant that would adhere to meatless Fridays for praying and fasting, but the majority would rationalize that since it is not mandatory they don't have to. That is part of the fallout of today's society which the Holy Father has cautioned us on. So also does Mrs. Brown when she remarks that "in order to be effective, the 'Meatless Friday' proposal must be mandatory...for all Catholics." She reminds us that's how it used to be and that this set Catholics apart from all others. She laments that it is no longer that way today. "Many Catholics have lost this spirit of sacrifice and atonement for sin. One of the results of this is the fact that our entire world has 'lost the sense of God,' as Pope John Paul II rightly puts it." For more on the storied history of "Meatless Friday" we refer you to an excellent accounting at the American Life League web site.
The League is also an advocate for stopping liturgical abuse because it is all part and parcel of satan's plan to divide and conquer. Mrs. Brown echoes what we have been saying in these pages for years: "The devil has entwined himself throughout every element of today's society - our schools, our government, our courtrooms, our news centers, our entertainment industry...even our Church!" She gives such examples as the Georgetown University debacle with removing the crucifixes which would have been returned sooner if it weren't for a liberal administration that had to "study" the proposal and examine if the University, a Catholic and Jesuit University no less, should "redefine its mission in a pluralistic society." She states in no uncertain terms that a "Catholic University's mission is to TEACH the TRUTH as defined by the Magisterium!" Her greatest fear regarding the grass roots petition to make "Meatless Fridays" mandatory once more is that it will get bogged down by those bishops who sense a conservative push behind it and therefore will stubbornly forestall it. She cites the facts that many bishops are "being defied when they attempt to curb liturgical and theological abuses in parishes." Cardinal O'Connor used the word "solidarity" to rally the faithful to the cause and this is the battle cry Mrs. Brown employs asking all lay Catholics to "band together in SOLIDARITY with these bishops and deliver this message to all our bishops: Lead us! Shepherd us! We will follow!"
For those who would like to join this crusade and who realize now is the time for Catholics to PRAY and FAST!, we are including the American Life League's Survey where you can pledge your prayerful support toward "Meatless Fridays": SURVEY. This National Catholic Survey is only four questions and should take you all of ten seconds to complete but the more who throw their support behind this movement, the more the bishops will sit up and take notice in June. If we can do that, and the bishops can follow suit, then we can be confident that God will do the rest. So put aside the steak, chicken and burgers and break out the bread, fish and cheese. Peanut butter sandwiches also serve their purpose to remind us that it is a sacrifice. This editor can attest to that first hand! Yet, despite what meatless foods we may opt for, it is only through our commitment to pray and fast on Fridays that we'll be able to get to the meat of "Meatless Fridays" for the sake of America's soul!
My dear children, heed your Mother's holy words. I have come to warn you that the security you see in your world, in your lives, is but a shadow. Like a wisp of smoke it shall scatter before you, and if you are not prepared, you shall lie stricken with terror as the evil one snatches you from eternal life and sends your immortal soul to an eternity of pain and suffering.
I tell these things to you that you may know to what depths of depravity all humanity has willingly sunk. I tell you these things so that you may awaken to the True Light, which is my Divine Son Jesus Christ. He alone forgives all sins and makes new what has been corrupted. The time of Mercy shall not last. I solemnly tell you that even as I speak to you the angels gird themselves for the final battle. They, the heavenly host, are prepared. But are you? Have you heard my loving plea, which has grown more urgent each time I speak? Have you responded with all your being? Or do you remain skeptical?
My dear children, the moment fast approaches when the Author of All Creation, the Triune Majesty, shall, in one swift moment, so chastise the world that no trace of evil shall remain. Come to me, for I bring all to my Divine Son. Do not persist in your openly blasphemous ways which deny my Son's Divinity and my Immaculate Heart as His Mother. Convert your hearts. Seek constantly the grace of the Holy Spirit that the entire world shall become one mind, one heart in union with my Son's Most Sacred Heart. I solemnly tell you my Immaculate Heart shall triumph and the evil one, the antichrist, shall be crushed. I call all my children to my army. But my tears are overflowing at the large numbers who refuse my invitation. I shall increase my visitations to my little ones. Many more shall hear my voice. These are extraordinary graces given for an extraordinary time. Do not reject them. Pray! Pray! Pray! Thank you for responding to my Call!
How wretched these times, my dear ones, for so perverse has man become as to believe and propagate the demon's lies. How many of my children do not believe satan exists? Does God lie? It is not possible! His Holy Word is in Scripture, but even these Holy Words you abuse by the futile power of human reasoning. I am here to tell you God exists, and the Father of All Creation shall no longer be able to stay His Perfect Justice.
Never has such evil pervaded the earth as in these times. In every corner of the world, in every aspect of society it is satan who rules. Abominations against God's Law abound. The youth are raised in ignorance of my Son and are less accountable than those who have deliberately raised them to such dark ignorance.
Often I have told you that preceding the tangible three days of darkness shall come the reign of spiritual darkness. You have not looked at your world with the eyes of your soul. You refuse to acknowledge that your world is sinking in evil. It is everywhere, a true deluge of hatred of every kind and form, cleverly disguised as social progress.
But evil shall not triumph!
My Immaculate Heart will triumph, as ordained by the Triune Divinity. Those who refuse to acknowledge me as Queen of Heaven and Earth will see the might of God and their pride and stubbornness shall bend, their eyes shall perceive Truth and know God is not diminished by bestowing honor upon a mere creature, but rather, is exalted because of my obedience and virtue.
I am the Ever-Virgin Mother of God, the Gate of Heaven, the Bearer of the Second Advent. I come among my children to bring to fruition the coming Reign of the Sacred Heart of my Son. All who are in my Son have my protection and intercession and therefore shall fear nothing. Those who, of their won free will, deny Jesus and my role as Co-Redemptrix, deny Truth and shall be swept away by the demons of hell, whom they have chosen as their god.
Yet I solemnly tell you I desire the salvation of all my children and to this end I remain with you, speaking to many, appearing in many places that all may believe and convert.
Woe! Triple woe to those who are so hardened as to deny the Truth. God's power shall cause your voices to fall silent before His Majesty, and my little ones, my treasured army of victim souls shall see their pains bear glorious fruit.
I tell you again. Pray! Fast! Reconcile yourselves to one another. Receive the Sacraments and persevere in the faith. Pray for my beloved son Pope John Paul II who has been fashioned by me for this age of extraordinary graces given to fulfill all that Scripture contains.
My words at LaSalette, Fatima, Garabandal, Medjugorje and countless other places throughout the world shall be fulfilled as ordained by God in this your age and time.
Now Mercy still reigns. But the moment comes and shall leave you breathless when the Holy Justice of God sweeps the universe.
Pray! Pray! Pray! You do not perceive the gravity of these days. You are deceived, looking at all things in a finite, fallible way.
Please, dear children, your mother loves you beyond any description. Come to me, for I lead all to Jesus Christ, the Only-Begotten of the Father.
Pray for the grace of the Holy Spirit that you may be of one mind, one heart. This, my children, will take place as my Immaculate Heart triumphs. I bestow upon you God's Peace. I remain with you. Thank you, precious children, for responding to my Call!
