This Synod seems sure to rest even true conclusions not on objective truth, but on the bishops’ vote. Today the voting game belongs to them- Bishop Richard Williamson

Invite Bishop Williamson

Bishops’ Synod

God’s Law belongs to God and not to man.Man must, with Christ, obey as best he can.
When the three-week meeting of Catholic bishops from all over the world opened in Rome on October 4 to discuss questions on the family, many Catholics feared that it would undermine the Church’s unchangeable moral doctrine, especially since Pope Francis is so intent on reaching out to immoral modern man. However, traditionally minded Catholics have been encouraged by the emergence before and during the Synod of substantial resistance by many Newchurch prelates to any such undermining. Only tomorrow will the Synod’s results be known, but certain things are clear, whatever those results may be.
Firstly, let nobody say that there is nothing Catholic left in the mainstream Catholic Church. Conciliarism may well have infected the faith and morals of many, even most, of its prelates, but to claim that all of them are utterly corrupt is a gross injustice and over-simplification. Obviously a number of them are doing their best to uphold God’s moral law.
Secondly, however, these (in this respect) good men are fighting from a weak position because dogma is the foundation of morals, and with Vatican II the Newchurch abandoned dogma. Dogma founds morals because, for instance, if God, Heaven and Hell (dogma) do not exist, then why should I obey the Ten Commandments (morals)? And Vatican II by its Declaration on Religious Liberty wrecked dogma because if, as it taught, a State must recognize the right of all its citizens to practise in public the religion of their choice, then Jesus Christ cannot be God, because if he is, then the State, coming from God just as much as all the men composing it come from God, can grant no such right to religions denying that he is God, and for it to grant such a right is implicitly to deny that Jesus is God. Thus 50 years before the Synod, Vatican II undermined in advance all subsequent defenders of Christian morals, however decent as men they may be, unless they repudiate Vatican II.
That is why, thirdly, as John Vennari argues (one need not agree with everything he says), the essential trick of those at the Synod seeking to change Catholic morals has been the “turn towards man” underlying all of Vatican II. Here is the trick: “God’s Church is for man. True, God cannot change, but his Law must fit man, and yesterday’s Law no longer fits today’s man. Therefore that Law must be adapted to modern times.” However the Catholic Church was purchased by the Blood of Christ not to pull God down to man, but to raise man up to God, and to provide him through Christ with the means of being thus raised.
And fourthly, as Michael Voris says (one need not agree with everything he says), the Synod has been full of “bishop babble.” This is because many Newbishops will never have been properly taught Catholic doctrine, in fact they may well have learned that there is no such thing as unchanging truth. Thanks to Vatican II their minds are adrift among the morals and anti-morals of all the religions of the world. It can be no wonder then if they are hardly capable of thinking, and if they run loose at the mouth.
And fifthly, as an honourable colleague from the Society of St Pius X says (he has been criticised before now in these “Comments”), even if the Synod were to close tomorrow with entirely Catholic conclusions, still God’s moral law will have been undermined by the mere fact of its having been questioned on major points for a length of time, officially and in public. Moreover this Synod seems sure to rest even true conclusions not on their objective truth, but on the bishops’ vote, so that the liberals can come back next year or the year after, for one vote after another, until they finally get what they want. Today the voting game belongs to them.
Kyrie eleison.

The Purity of Soul Necessary for Holy Communion

The saints applied to perfection the directive of the Holy Spirit, “Let everyone first examine himself, and then eat of that Bread and drink of that Chalice; because he who eats and drinks unworthily, eats and drinks unto his own condemnation” (1Cor. 11:28-29).
Here is a good reminder from the saints to all Catholics about what a “well-formed conscience” really means before receiving Holy Communion.
The Purity of Soul Necessary for Holy Communion
By Fr. Stefano Manelli, O.F.M. Conv., S.T.D.
For Catholics to receive the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ in Holy Communion while in the state of mortal sin (having committed a mortal or grave sin which has not been confessed and forgiven in Sacramental Confession) is itself a mortal sin — a mortal sin of sacrilege.
What is there to say about the great purity of soul with which the saints approached to receive the bread of Angels? We know that they had a great delicacy of conscience which was truly angelic. Aware of their own misery, they tried to present themselves to Jesus “holy and immaculate,” (Eph. 1:4) repeating with the Publican , “O God, be merciful to me a sinner” (Luke 18:13), and having recourse with great care to the cleansing of Confession.
When St. Jerome was brought Holy Viaticum at the end of his life, the Saint prostrated himself on the ground in adoration and he was heard to repeat with profound humility the words of St. Elizabeth and those of St. Peter, “How is this, that my Lord should come to me?” “Depart from me, for I am a sinful man, O Lord” (Luke 5:8). And how many times was the angelic and seraphic St. Gemma tempted to not receive Holy Communion, holding herself to be nothing else than a vile dunghill!”
Padre Pio of Pietrelcina used to repeat with trepidation to his brethren, “God sees blights even in the angels. What must He see in me!” For this reason he was very diligent in making his sacramental Confessions.
“Oh, if we could only understand Who is that God Whom we receive in Holy Communion, then what purity of heart we would bring to Him!” exclaimed St. Mary Magdalen of Pazzi.
For this reason St. Hugh, St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Francis de Sales, St. Ignatius, St. Charles Borromeo, St. Francis Borgia, St. Louis Bertrand, St. Joseph Cupertino, St. Leonard of Port Maurice and many other saints went to Confession every day before celebrating Holy Mass.
St. Camillus de Lellis never celebrated Holy Mass without first going to Confession, because he wanted at least “to dust off” his soul. Once, at sundown in a public square in Livorno, before taking leave of a priest of the same religious order, foreseeing that he would not have a priest to confess to on the following morning before his Mass, paused, took off his hat, made the sign of the Cross and went to Confession right there in the square to his confrere.
Also St. Alphonsus, St. Joseph Cafasso, St. John Bosco, St. Pius X, and Padre Pio of Pietrelcina went to Confession very often. And why did St. Pius X wish to lower the age for First Holy Communion to seven years, if not to allow Jesus to enter into the innocent hearts of children, which are so similar to angels. And why was Padre Pio so delighted when they brought him children five years old who were prepared for First Holy Communion?
The saints applied to perfection the directive of the Holy Spirit, “Let everyone first examine himself, and then eat of that Bread and drink of that Chalice; because he who eats and drinks unworthily, eats and drinks unto his own condemnation” (1Cor. 11:28-29).
To examine themselves, to repent, to accuse themselves in Confession and to ask pardon of God, and in this way even every day profit from the Sacrament of Confession, was something natural for the saints. How fortunate they were to be capable of so much! The fruits of sanctification were constant and abundant because the purity of soul with which each saint welcomed into himself Jesus, “the Wheat of the elect,” (Zach. 9:17) was like the good ground “… which brings forth fruit in patience” (Luke 8:15).
St. Anthony Mary Claret illustrates this fact very well: “When we go to Holy Communion, all of us receive the same Lord Jesus, but not all receive the same grace nor are the same effects produced in all. This comes from our greater or lesser disposition. To explain this fact, I will take an example from nature. Consider the process of grafting, the more similar the one plant is to the other, the better the graft will succeed. Likewise, the more resemblance there is between the one that goes to Communion and Jesus, so much the better will the fruits of Holy Communion be.” The Sacrament of Confession is in fact the excellent means whereby the similarity between the soul and Jesus is restored.
For this reason St. Francis de Sales taught his spiritual children “Go to Confession with humility and devotion … if it is possible, every time that you go to Holy Communion, even though you do not feel in your conscience any remorse of mortal sin.”
In this regard it is well to recall the teaching of the Church. Holy Communion must be received only while one is in the grace of God. Therefore, when one has committed a mortal sin, even if one has repented of it and has a great desire to receive Holy Communion, it is necessary and indispensable to confess oneself first before receiving Holy Communion, otherwise one commits a most grave sin of sacrilege, for which Jesus said to St. Bridget, “there does not exist on earth a punishment which is great enough to punish it sufficiently!”
St. Ambrose said that persons who commit this sacrilege “come into church with a few sins, and leave it burdened with many.” St. Cyril wrote something yet stronger: “They who make a sacrilegious Communion receive Satan and Jesus Christ into their hearts – Satan, that they may let him rule, and Jesus Christ, that they may offer Him in sacrifice as a Victim to Satan.”
Thus the Catechism of the Council of Trent (De Euch., v.i) declares: “As of all the sacred mysteries… none can compare with the … Eucharist, so likewise for no crime is there heavier punishment to be feared from God than for the unholy or irreligious use by the faithful of that which … contains the very Author and Source of holiness.”
On the other hand, Confession made before Holy Communion to render a soul already in the state of Sanctifying Grace more pure and more beautiful, is something precious even though not required. It is precious because it clothes the soul with a more beautiful “wedding garment” (cf Matt. 22:12) with which it may take its place at the table of the angels.
For this reason the most conscientious souls have always made frequent use (at least one a week) of the sacramental cleansing of absolution, even for venial sins. If you want great purity of soul in order to receive Jesus, no purity shines brighter than that which one obtains when he makes a good confession, where the cleansing Blood of Jesus renders the repentant soul divinely bright and beautiful. “The soul that receives the Divine Blood becomes beautiful, as being clothed in a more precious garment, and it appears so beautiful aglow that if you could see it you would be tempted to adore it,” declared St. Magdalen di Pazzi.
*A holy person recently said, “Perhaps we should begin reminding people publicly before Mass not to receive the Holy Communion if they think they are in the state of mortal sin.” The typist of this paper cannot agree with it more, if it is done diplomatically. In conscience, do we not have the heavy yet noble responsibility to protect and serve Our Lord and Saviour — our dearest Friend — who has become unspeakably vulnerable to our sacrilegious Communion?
Let us not forget what St. Cyril said above: “They who make a sacrilegious Communion receive Satan and Jesus Christ into their hearts – Satan, that they may let him rule, and Jesus Christ, that they may offer Him in sacrifice as a Victim to Satan.”
We too have to be merciful and protect those in the state of serious sin not to become even worse, as the Lord said above to St. Bridget, “there does not exist on earth a punishment which is great enough to punish it sufficiently

Synod compromises the Eucharist

The newspaper  headlines say the Church is to give the Eucharist to the divorced, so Pope Francis and the Masons have finally got what they wanted.They will use the old common  principle, the  exception makes the rule, for mass sacrilege.
The Eucharist has been compromised.This is, as Our Lady predicted in apparitions and locutions and we will see more of it over the next few years.

Pope Francis' pontificate has been noted for the sacrilege of the Eucharist.He told Eugenio Scalfari that there is no objective reality and individual conscience is supreme. The same thing was  repeated by cardinals at this Synod.So there is no objective mortal sin, no objective intrinsically evil acts and there is no fear of Hell.
For Pope Francis and the Synod the teachings of the Church are relative and so open to change.Well, if this was true then we do not really have to follow the new teachings. Since a relative teaching can be changed by another pontiff in the future. So there should be no obligation for supporters of Pope Francis to expect obedience here.
The Synod has used the same old tactic to change Church teaching and practise.In the past the Magisterium cited exceptions in morals,as if they could judge,  then they created a whole new moral theology based on these exceptions.
There were also supposed to be exceptions to the doctrine on salvation and now those exceptions are the common rule and the original dogma has been forgotten.The baptism of desire was put forward as a known exception to the dogma on exclusive salvation. They even wrongly suggested this in Vatican Council II. In fact so much of the interpretation of Vatican  Council is based on exceptions being the rule (AG 7, LG 14, UR 3 , NA 2 etc).

The Eucharist will now be further profaned as more people living in mortal sin will expect to be given the Eucharist at Mass.For them  individual conscience is supreme and there is no objective reality.This is a pro Masonic doctrine Pope Francis and the cardinals have affirmed repeatedly in public.

Already at Mass the priest is allowed, and expected to give the Eucharist to any one who shows up.The liberals say no one should be refused the Eucharist. This is their new doctrine.Presently there is no rule for new comers to a parish or church, to  meet the priest before Mass and identify themself. We see non Christians going up to receive the Eucharist who are not known to the priest. They receive the Body and Blood of Jesus sacrilegiously and are not told that this will bring condemnation upon them.
Jesus feels in the Eucharist, just like a human being.Receiving the Eucharist with mortal sin,brings Him pain. The saints have seen Jesus in pain when Catholics have  received the Eucharist with mortal sin.Now the divorced and remarried will expect to receive the Eucharist.
 The saints who have seen Jesus in pain when being received sacrilegiously, include Teresa of Avila and  St. Faustina Kowalski.
The liberals say that we cannot judge the state of a person in sin.Yet it is common today to see men in shorts and ladies vulgarly dressed to go up to receive the Eucharist. The priest and the whole congregation watch it.They can judge.
Often when someone protests in public at the immodesty in dress, the priest defends the one receiving the Eucharist.The scantily dressed are given the Eucharist in general and not on a ' case by case basis'.Since the belief in mortal sin is not there.Individual conscience is supreme for them.
The Synod 2015 has made the 'case by case' issue a loophole for the sacrilege of the Eucharist in general.This is how it was done with the nullity of marriage. We have the nullity of marriage factories based on exceptions.Now after the pope's recent motu proprio we will have the quick- divorce factories, based on the case by case exceptions.
We are in the end times Our Lady tells us. There will be a new false Church and a false image of Jesus. Sacrilege will become  common. This must continue until a severe chastisement in the Church will be a purification. Our Lady told Fr. Stefano Gobbi of the Marian Movement of Priests that after the purification we will then no longer see the Church as it is at present.The Catholic Church will emerge poor but evangelical.This will coincide with a purification of the earth. We who are still alive can expect wars and natural disasters.The worst is on its way.
There will be more gatherings of liberal, hand picked cardinals who will move the Church towards Masonic evil goals.
At one point we will see all the enemies of the Church unite and try to completely destroy Jesus' Church, to remove all trace of it.This will be painful, Our Lady says.Aside from this how can we expect a purification of the Church, she asks,from its false doctrines,theologies  etc.
Those who are faithful to the teachings of the Church, she says, should keep fighting against evil and be prepared to be persecuted, imprisoned and for some, even martyred.

Hell and How to Avoid Hell by Thomas A. Nelson 
(Amazon Books)
This book is an absolute must for everyone, regardless if you are Christian or not! You will not be able to put the book down as it captivates you with an absolutely overwhelming feeling of fear and terror. It really causes you to re-evaluate your own conscience and whether or not you are on the path to heaven. This book is especially needed for those who do not know Jesus Christ and for those that do know Him but think they are "once saved always saved." The Bible clearly states that we must accept Christ into our lives in order to be saved from the fires of Hell, but we must also "work out our salvation with nervous trembling." This book discusses these points in great detail as well as many other important biblical facts about Heaven, Hell, and salvation. It's a must buy!

The entrance it seems to me was similar to a very long and narrow alleyway, like an oven, low and dark and confined; the floor seemed to me to consist of dirty, muddy water emitting foul stench and swarming with putrid vermin...The bodily pains were so unbearable that though I had suffered excruciating ones in this life and according to what doctors say, the worst that can be suffered on earth for all my nerves were shrunken when I was paralyzed, plus many other sufferings of many kinds that I endured and even some as I said, caused by the devil, these were all nothing in comparison with the ones I experienced there...-St.Teresa of Avila's description of Hell.

There are special Tortures destined for particular souls. These are the torments of the senses. Each soul undergoes terrible and indescribable sufferings related to the manner in which it has sinned.
I would have diedThere are caverns and pits of torture where one form of agony differs from another. I would have died at the very sight of these tortures if the omnipotence of God had not supported me...-St.Faustina Kowalska's description of Hell.

"Then I was pushed into one of those fiery cavities and pressed, as it were, between burning planks, and sharp nails and red-hot irons seemed to be piercing my flesh."

Here Josefa repeated the multiple tortures from which no single member of the body is excluded:

"I felt as if they were endeavoring to pull out my tongue, but could not. This torture reduced me to such agony that my very eyes seemed to be starting out of their sockets. I think this was because of the fire which burns, burns... not a finger-nail escapes terrifying torments, and all the time one cannot move even a finger to gain some relief, nor change posture, for the body seems flattened out and yet doubled in two.-Sr.Joseph Menendez's description of Hell.
There was a certain rich man, who was clothed in purple and fine linen; and feasted sumptuously every day. And there was a certain beggar, named Lazarus, who lay at his gate, full of sores,
Desiring to be filled with the crumbs that fell from the rich man' s table, and no one did give him; moreover the dogs came, and licked his sores. And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham' s bosom. And the rich man also died: and he was buried in hell. And lifting up his eyes when he was in torments, he saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom: And he cried, and said: Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, to cool my tongue: for I am tormented in this flame. And Abraham said to him: Son, remember that thou didst receive good things in thy lifetime, and likewise Lazareth evil things, but now he is comforted; and thou art tormented. 

And besides all this, between us and you, there is fixed a great chaos: so that they who would pass from hence to you, cannot, nor from thence come hither. And he said: Then, father, I beseech thee, that thou wouldst send him to my father' s house, for I have five brethren, That he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torments. And Abraham said to him: They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. But he said: No, father Abraham: but if one went to them from the dead, they will do penance. 
And he said to him: If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they believe, if one rise again from the dead. -Luke :19-31, The Rich Man (Dives) and Lazarus.
Second Circle (Lust)

Gianciotto Discovers Paolo and Francesca
In the second circle of Hell are those overcome by lust. Dante condemns these "carnal malefactors"[ for letting their appetites sway their reason. They are the first ones to be truly punished in Hell. These souls are blown back and forth by the terrible winds of a violent storm, without rest. This symbolizes the power of lust to blow one about needlessly and aimlessly.
In this circle, Dante sees 
SemiramisDidoCleopatraHelen of TroyAchillesParisTristan, and many others who were overcome by sexual love during their life. Dante is told byFrancesca da Rimini how she and her husband's brother Paolo Malatesta committed adultery, but then died a violent death, in the name of Love, at the hands of her husband, Giovanni (Gianciotto). Francesca reports that their act of adultery was triggered by reading the adulterous story of Lancelot and Guinevere (an episode sculpted by Auguste Rodin in The Kiss). Nevertheless, she predicts that her husband will be punished for his fratricidein Caïna, within the ninth circle (Canto V).
