Pope's Confidant Spadaro: Francis believes God wills Intrinsically Evil Acts

Updated October 9, 2017-

The National Catholic Reporter, on October 6, reported that one of Pope Francis's closest advisers Fr. Antonio Spadaro "says the pontiff thinks the Catholic Church can no longer issue general rules that apply to whole categories of people."

The Reporter wrote Spadaro speaking of Amoris Laetitia said "that the document recognizes that even people living in 'irregular' family situations, such as divorce and remarriage, 'can be living in God's grace, can love and also grow in a life of grace.'"

Then still quoting Francis, Spadaro said:

"We must conclude that the Pope realizes that one can no longer speak of an abstract category of persons and... praxis of integration in a rule that is absolutely to be followed in every instance."
(National Catholic Reporter, "Bishops deliberate whether one rule applies to all divorced people after 'Amoris Laetitia,' Impossible to judge people based on a norm above all, concludes papal confidant at conference," October 6, 2017)

Francis's confidant Spadaro unwittingly said that the Pope answered dubia 5:

"After Amoris Laetitia (303) does one still need to regard as valid... Veritatis Splendor, 56, based on sacred Scripture... that conscience can never be authorized to legitimate exceptions to absolute moral norms that prohibit Intrinsically evil acts by virtue of their object?"

Spadaro, apparently, in simple words said Pope Francis is a material heretic who believes God wills intrinsically evil acts.

(If the above quotes are misrepresenting what Spadaro is saying then Spadaro, the Vatican or Pope Francis must disaffirm or retract the above quotes or explain why they are not heretical.)

World-renown philosopher, founding Rector of the International Academy of Philosophy, and friend of Pope John Paul II Joesf Seifert in a new paper on Amoris Laetitia (AL) in more detail explains what Spadaro said about Francis and AL:

"AL says that we can know with 'a certain moral security' that God himself asks us to commit intrinsically wrong acts such as adultery..."

"If only one case of an intrinsically immoral act can be permitted and even willed by God, must this not apply to all acts considered 'intrinsically wrong'?" ("Does pure logic threaten to destroy the entire moral doctrine of the Catholic Church?," August 5, 2017)

In simple words the friend of John Paul II and renown philosopher says:

Pope Francis's Amoris Leatitia says God wills evil.

The philosopher's paper says:

"Let us read the decisive text (AL 303), which is being applied by Pope Francis to the case of adulterous or 'irregular couples'... :

'Yet conscience can do more... the most generous response which can be given to God (Relations Finalise 2015, 85) and come to see with a certain moral security that God himself is asking amid the concrete complexity of one's limits, while yet not fully the objective ideal (AL 303).'"

Seifert, the friend of Pope John Paul II, in the paper asks that "every Cardinal and Bishop... and every layperson" plea:

"Pope Francis... please retract the mentioned affirmation. If it's logical consequences lead with iron stringency to nothing less than to a total destruction of the moral teachings of the Catholic Church."

Seifert has drawn the battleline clearly:

Every Catholic, be they Dubia Cardinals or pewsitter, must pray and plea that Francis retract and if the Pope refuses that he be corrected and rebuked as St. Paul rebuked St. Peter by the Dubia Cardinals.

Every Catholic needs to pray and offers sacrifices in reparation for the sacrileges and offenses against the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary as Our Lady of Fatima requested.

Say the prayer of the Angel of Fatima:

"Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, I adore You profoundly, and I offer You the Most Precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ, present in all the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for the outrages, sacrileges and indifferences by which He is offended. And by the infinite merits of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg the conversion of poor sinners. "

Pray the rosary and offer sarcifices that the Dubia Cardinals issue the correction.

Silly Fastiggi/Goldstein vs. Pope Francis's Amoris Laetitia Ghostwriter

-Updated October 6, 2017-

The Robert Fastiggi and Dawn Eden Goldstein attack on the Filial Correction in which they say the Latin translation of Amoris Leatitia is orthodox is silly.

They claim the Latin interpretation of A.L. invalidates the Correction.

Correction spokesman Joesph Shaw agrees it can have a orthodox intreptration. The problem is it can also have a unorthodox intreptration.

Fastiggi and Goldstein are mixed up.

The pair need to attack the Malta/German Bishop's unorthodox intreptration of Amoris Leatitia.

Even more importantly, the silly pair need to attack the intimate friend of Pope Francis and ghostwriter of Amoris Leatitia.

The Amoris Leatitia ghostwriter's interpretation doesn't square with the Fastiggi/Goldstein interpretation of Amoris Leatitia.

Archbishop Victor Manuel Fernandez who the Vatican expert Edward Pentin says is the "ghostwriter" of Amoris Laetitia and one of the Pope's closest advisers according to Crux said:

"Pope Francis... sought to move the Church forward on the question of Communion for remarried divorces 'in a discreet way'...'in a more uxorio cohabitation... 'an objectively grave fault is not sufficient to deprive a person of sanctifying grace... there can be a path of discernment open to the possibility of receiving the food of the Eucharist.'"

Basically, Fernandez, in a laborious way, said Francis opened the door for adulterers in more uxorio (which means sexual relations) to receive Holy Communion.

Moreover, Fernandez said:

Francis's Argentina letter is a "authorizative statement" that says adulterers can receive Holy Communion while not living as brother and sister. (Crux, "Papal confidante says 'Amoris' critics in 'death-trap' logic, August 21, 2017)

The Crux article reported Fernandez said a letter by Pope Puis IX which was a "authorizative statement" is an example that shows the Argentina letter of Francis is written formal papal teaching.

In that case if the Pope's ghostwriter is correct then Francis has by a "authorizative statement" answered the Cardinals dubia or question on if adulterers can receive Communion while not living as brother and sister (that is while committing adulterous sexual relations).

On December 23, 2016 Cardinal Walter Brandmuller, one of the Dubia Cardinals, said:

"Whoever thinks that persistent adultery and reception of Holy Communion are compatible is a heretic."  (lifesitenews.com)

Therefore, Pope Francis is a material heretic because he is "unaware that his heretical opinion denies, in the words of Canon 751 'some truth which is to be believed by divine and Catholic faith.'" (Wikipedia, "Catholic teachings on heresy")

Eminent Dominican theologian Father Aidan Nichols agrees with Cardinal Brandmuller's above statement.

According to Pentin, Fr. Nichols said interpretations of Amoris Laetitia "such as the one given by Archbishop Fernandez above, contradicts the perennial teaching of the Church, and the exhortation effectively argues for 'tolerated concubinage.'" (National Catholic Register, Edward Pentin, "Archbishop Fernandez Defends 'Amoris Laetitia' From Its Critics, August 21, 2017)

The Dubia Cardinals have their answer.

They need to issue the correction.

Pray for Trump that the Prophecy of the Hermit of Loreto come True and Pray for Pope Francis's Conversion


It is sad to say, but in terms of policy and actions, President Trump is by a wide margin more pro-life and pro-family than Pope Francis.
 
(Read lifesitenews.com or my website for the evidence.)

It is just that so many faithful Catholics who love Christ's Church are angry because of the undeniable distorting of Church teachings by Pope Francis and his appointees.
We can use that anger to motivate us to pray and trust God, present the truth of Catholicism by our life & words, expose error, ask that the error be corrected, but most of all pray that we love our family and our neighbor.
Or we can make our anger the center of the universe not trusting that God is the center of the universe.

He is allowing this crisis and is in total control allowing Francis’s free will and our free will in the mix.

As a great priest and exorist said:

The devil wants our focus to be anything, but God. We love our family, our friends and the Church for the sake of God. If we do this we will love them as we should, be at peace and bear fruit for His Kingdom and them.
Remember this when we pray for the Pope or expose his errors and be reminded of what St. Thomas Aquinas said of St. Paul’s rebuke of St. Peter:
-“The manner of the rebuke was fitting, i.e., public and plain."
-'The Apostle opposed Peter in the exercise of authority, not in his authority of ruling.”

In other words, do it God's way.
Pray and ask others to pray for Pope Francis's conversion from the many errors he is spreading and that the Dubia Cardinals issue the correction and correct Francis as St. Paul corrected St. Peter for the good of the Church and the Pope.
Pray the rosary, the Hail Mary and do penance as Our Lady of Fatima requested for these intentions, but most of all to love & adore God first, and love our family, neighbors and the Church for God's sake.
 
Most importantly, keep President Trump in your prayers and penances because the hatred of the world and the devil that is usually directed at pro-life/family popes is targeting him. Pray that God protect the President and give him wisdom especially not to say dumb things.


According to Father Giacomo Capoverdi on YouTube in the 1980's the "Hermit of Loerto (the author of the Pieta Prayer Book)" made the prophecy that Donald Trump would bring the USA back to God.

Four decades ago, Fr. Capoverdi in astonishment said you mean the playboy. The Hermit said yes.

Pray that the President is given the grace and wisdom to bring America back to God.
Remember that the great catholic cultural historian Christopher Dawson said history is often changed more by saintly Catholics praying than the so-called great men of history.

The following article is posted with the permission of the author James Larson:
The Immaculate Heart of Mary, The Rosary, and The Survival of Our Faith
The rosary, because of its structural content, is something that requires a certain time set aside for its proper recitation. It is clearly the will of God and of Mary that it be part of every person’s daily prayer life. It is the basis of our spiritual childhood lived within Mary’s Immaculate Heart.

It is my belief, however, that especially in these times of virtual universal disorientation and distress, the structured rosary, while indeed being the foundation of our personal prayer life, requires much more in order that such spiritual childhood be protected throughout the day. The rosary itself requires less than one-half hour. If this is all we do, then the rest of the day may well be surrendered almost entirely to forces which seek our spiritual death.

The Hail Mary, on the other hand, takes only about fifteen seconds. There is almost no limitation to the situations and times in which it can be prayed, even in the midst of the most worldly activity; in situations of temptation, anger, doubt, confusion, or even despair; and, especially valuable, as we are falling into sleep. Even if there is only time to pray “Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee”, this provides a powerful means by which we may be affectively drawn into Our Lady’s Heart as her spiritual children. It is in itself, when said in the humble spirit of a simple moment of offering one’s own heart to Our Lady, a most profound act of love and consecration which flees from the world in order to take refuge in Mary’s certain and protecting faith.

Our Lord instructs us that we are “always to pray, and not to faint [lose heart]”. He further makes it quite clear that it is this heart which must be maintained if there is to be any faith upon His return (Luke 18:1-8). For us to truly take this seriously, we must first fully admit that we are extraordinarily vulnerable children who, especially in the overwhelming spiritual crisis of our time, must find refuge in Our Lady’s Immaculate Heart, or perish. The rosary, and especially the frequent praying of the Hail Mary, is the gift from Our Lady to secure us in this certainty of faith.

To Release Love

In his encyclical The Christian Meaning of Human Suffering, Pope John Paul II wrote that “suffering is present in the world in order to release love”. This is a statement that has haunted me for the past 31 years. It has become a principle necessary for my understanding of the crucifixion of the Church which I have witnessed occurring over the past 35 years since my conversion. It has pursued me in my own life, and especially in my children who I have watched grow from the innocence of childhood into being subjected as adults to the crucible of suffering which is this modern Christ-hating world.

It was Blessed Simeon who prophesied to Mary that “thy own soul a sword shall pierce, that out of many hearts, thoughts may be revealed”. This verbal image of Mary’s pierced heart calls to mind the artistic representation of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, pierced by a sword and releasing the flame of love towards Christ, and towards all men and women created in His Image. The spiritual maternity of Mary is, in its most profound essence, the transforming of human pain and suffering into the light and life of Christ. When, through the praying of the Hail Mary, we place ourselves and those we love within Her Heart, we are therefore exercising the supreme mercy towards souls for the glorification of God.

The Rosary and the Hail Mary are not therefore primarily about focusing on our own personal sanctification, but rather about striking the fire of love upon the flint of our hearts hardened by the effects of original and actual sin. If it be true, according to Christ’s words, that we must die to self in order to gain self, then it must be equally true that in our prayer life it is in loving God and praying for souls that we are meant to be perfected in that love which cannot help but be our sanctification. If our prayers are beset by dullness it is most likely because they are, at least secretly, turned inwards primarily towards ourselves.
Focusing on self-love, even in the virtuous cause of self-sanctification, inevitably leads to the torpidity of spirit which is possibly the most constant effect of original sin upon our minds and hearts. Interiorly, we are all dull unless our hearts erupt into love.

This is why the “other half” of the Fatima message concerns the necessity of reparation. We tend to conceive of the Catholic concept of reparation only in terms of “making reparation” for offenses committed against God. But the term reparation is a relational term. Reparation is therefore primarily concerned with the militant effort to “repair” souls to God. This is the most profound way in which we glorify God and make “reparation” for the offenses committed against Him.

The Rosary and Hail Mary are therefore prayers of “repair” not only for ourselves, but for others. And since our own hearts are most easily moved out of dullness not only by our own personal suffering but by the sufferings of those we love (our spouses, children, friends, and the whole suffering Church and world), then the Rosary and Hail Mary prayed for those we love should be the means by which our hearts are set afire. It is in this fire that our hearts become one with Mary, and through her to Jesus: “I am come to cast fire on the earth: and what will I, but that it be kindled?” (Luke 12: 49).

The Rosary is a violent prayer, demanding a violent love. Our Lord said that “the Kingdom of heaven suffereth violence and the violent bear it away”. Such a concept may indeed come as a shock to those who envision the Rosary as a prayer predominantly consisting of peaceful meditations and gentle consolations. If, however, St. Dominic is correct in considering that it is through the Scapular (consecration to Mary) and the Rosary that the world will be saved, then we should be willing to seriously consider that these devotions necessitate the violence and “fire” of which Our Lord speaks.

The nature of this “violence” is unraveled by Our Lord in that same parable which contains the two passages we have already examined concerning prayer and its relation to the question of Our Lord as to whether there will be any faith left when He returns:

"And he spoke also a parable to them, that we ought always to pray, and not to faint, saying: There was a judge in a certain city who feared not God, nor regarded man. And there was a certain widow in that city, and she came to him, saying: Avenge me of my adversary. And he would not for a long time. But afterwards he said within himself: Although I fear not God, nor regard man, yet because this widow is troublesome to me, I will avenge her, lest continually coming she weary me. And the Lord said: Hear what the unjust judge saith. And will not God revenge his elect who cry to him day and night: and will he have patience in their regard? I say to you, that he will quickly revenge them. But yet the Son of man, when he cometh, shall he find, think you, faith on earth?"

We need to penetrate to the spirit of this passage if we are to understand Our Lord’s demand that we “always pray” and not lose heart, and the connection which this fervent and persistent prayer bears to the survival of faith.

The widow who is the object of this parable is clearly operating almost totally in the realm of passion – of vehement anger and vengefulness. Obviously, when considering what Christ is trying here to impart to his listeners, this is a metaphor for spiritual realities. We see this sort of figure of speech used often in scripture, as for instance when scripture speaks of God’s anger. God is not subject to sensible passions. The word “anger” is thus used as a metaphor for His judgment and chastisement. All the violent language used in this passage is therefore constituted as a parable signifying those “elect” who will retain their faith because they “cry to Him day and night”.

There is, however, another great distinction to be made between the widow and the “elect”. The widow’s cry comes naturally. She is consumed by passion, and her vengefulness consumes her night and day. She does not have to labor to make this thing come alive in her heart. This is not true of the “cry” of the elect.

The Rosary and Hail Mary are a cry of the will. They may sometimes be accompanied by sentiment or passion, but this certainly is not the norm, nor does it provide sufficient motivation for the “praying always’ commanded by Our Lord. In order for them to become habitual, we must make a very conscious commitment to militantly praying “day and night”. It is not enough therefore to sit back and rest in the fact that we “say” our daily Rosary. We must strive with all our heart to correspond with the unceasing love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. This, I believe, can be accomplished by the constant effort to extend our daily Rosary throughout the day by the frequent praying of the Hail Mary. It is a work of love.

"Pray, pray a great deal and make many sacrifices, for many souls
go to Hell because they have no one to make sacrifices and to pray for them
.”
Our Lady of Fatima (Aug 17, 1917)

Charismatics, Sedevacantis, False Apparitions and a "Holy Spirit" outside the Catholic Church

Rick Salbato and I communicated by email before he went home to God.

I didn't agree with everything Rick said in these essay, but he gives a honest history of Catholic Church which in my opinion in general is correct.

This essay covers Ralph Martin and much more as you will see.

Ralph Martin is a puzzling figure because recently he defends the Catholic infallible teaching of hell against Hans von Balthazar and yet in many ways has a Protestant theology as Salbato clearly shows.

I hope Martin has fully return to a Catholic theology.

I am posting these because Pope Francis appears to be the Charismatic Pope with a Protestant theology once predicted by some in the Charismatic movement.

My position on the movement is there are many sincere Catholics in it that are seriously confused about infallible Catholic teachings, but who many times are open to the fullness of the faith.

One example, is another email friend James Larson who was once a Charismatic and is now a Thomistic scholar and great defender of orthodox Catholicism.

The following is Rick's essay:


Ralph Martin
Brings a False Spirit into the Catholic Church


True fidelity to the Church requires a firm faith in the Holy Bible and perfect obedience to the Magisterium, in particular the teaching that no one who willfully avoids the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth, i.e. the One, True, Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church founded by Jesus' Most Precious Blood, can be saved.

True fidelity implies that any Catholic professing GOD's All Holy Spirit exists outside Christ's Church is a liar... to be avoided. As proven in Jesus' Crucifixion and Death on Calvary and manifest in His Most Glorious Resurrection, His Holy Spirit of Redemption proceeds through His Foundation, His Blood, His Church. Christ alone died for our sins and opened the gates of Hell. To preach another gospel is heresy. While our Omnipresent and Omnipotent God's Grace and Mercy flows abundantly, our Father's Beneficence -- by His Divine and Almighty Will, and Christ's unforgettable Sacrifice and commanding words to St. Peter, "You are Peter and upon this rock I will build MY CHURCH." -- proceed into time through the hallowed sanctity of His Church, and His Church alone (not Luther, Wyatt or any other man's words or deeds). Why? Because these false prophets did not die to us free. "Unless you eat My Body and drink My Blood you will not enter My Father's House". Christ freely gave us His Most Precious Blood that all men might come to the knowledge of GOD and be saved. He exists in the Most Holy Eucharist and sacramental lifeblood of His Church even to the end of time. This is the Good News, our light to the world that should be proclaimed to all the world in everything we think, say and do. Deo gratias for the Blood Christ that founded GOD's Church on earth. Deo gratias for our Unifying Faith.

The greatest contradiction to Scripture and the Teaching Authority of the Church is that of "pluralism". The Catholic Charismatic Movement started with the "Spirit" of Protestantism. Canon Law 1258 forbids Catholics from actively participating in any way whatsoever in non-Catholic worship or ceremonies. It is a formal act of apostasy for a Catholic to make an act of total adherence to a heretical sect. Why? Because "how you pray is how you believe" (lex orandi, lex credendi).

Nonetheless, that is how it all started in 1967 at Duquesne University. Four professors had read and studied the books of the Protestant Pentecostals. They decided that they wanted this power of the spirit, so they prayed and prayed, put they could not get it inside the Catholic Church. They decided to go OUTSIDE to the heretical sect. They called on a Protestant Minister and within a few days had a group of Pentecostals praying over them. They were BAPTIZED IN THE SPIRIT. Later that year two Michigan State graduates, Ralph Martin and Stephen Clark, were baptized in the Spirit at a Notre Dame University gathering. From there the movement spread into the Catholic Church. To this day Catholics and Protestants of the movement still pray together in violation of Canon 1258.

A year ago we attended a Woman's Catholic Charismatic Prayer Group. Some of the members were from Calvary Chapel, some from Evangelical Churches, some from Fundamentalist Churches. Father Michael Barry of Riverside led the prayers. This was not in the Church but in a classroom. No one made the sign of the cross, but tongues and prophesy were common. Father Barry is the same priest who passes out Communion to non-Catholics. When confronted about it, he replies, "Why not? They are Christians."

In order to accommodate the non-Catholics and Satan, himself, Catholic Charismatics do not make the sign of the cross before praying, after praying, or at anytime. They do not use Holy Water. They do not kneel when praying. They do not use blessed Crucifixes or relics. They do not conduct their prayer sessions inside a Church where the Blessed Sacrament exists, except when forced by circumstances.

Since, the sign of the cross, blessed articles, Holy Water, and the Blessed Sacrament are instruments against the demonic, one would have to wonder whose spirit this is anyway.

[Note: In recent years some groups have taken up these practices; the Rosary, sign of the Cross, etc. However, this is not the norm, and those who are doing so will find themselves leaving the Charismatic movement.]

Unity is the constant work of the members of the Body of Christ, the communion of Saints, the Church. It is the duty of all Christians to work towards the common community of God's people. To say that it is all right to belong to any Christian Church is disunity. It is PLURALISM. It has been condemned by the Church hundreds of times over the centuries. Unity is the last will and testament of Christ at the Last Supper (John 17). It is the prayer and work of the Church in the Twentieth Century. It was the dream of Pope John XXIII, Pope Paul VI, Vatican II, and Our Holy Father today. But unity is not accepting all Christians as they are, anymore than love is accepting what our children do no matter what it is. Love is a study of truth and morals; and then the correction of sin and false belief. This kind of love brings unity.

Catholic Charismatics are filled with the kind of love that hugs each other, holds hands, and speaks nicely of each other. They even speak nicely of sinners. Almost never do they practice any of the Spiritual or Corporal Works of Mercy. Love is a verb, an action, and therefore is something that we must DO, not something that we FEEL. To feed the hungry, to admonish the sinner, to forgive, to bear wrongs patiently, this is love. There is no love in the basic core of the Charismatic Movement.

"NO LONGER IS IT FASHIONABLE TO SEEK A LOGICAL AND SYSTEMATIC DEFENSE OF RELIGION. CHARISMATIC SPIRITUALISM IS PREFERRED TO DOGMATIC REASONING."

The words of Pope John Paul II.

This is a great trick of the Demonic, to make man his own authority as to what is right or wrong; true or false. To do this, man must think he is getting his inspiration direct from Heaven. It is the same heresy as the Gnostics of the first century. It is the same method Satan used to trick Adam and Eve. "You will be like God, knowing good and evil."

A few year back, locutions [messages from Heaven] were being sent by the "spirit" all over the world to the effect that the next Pope would be a Charismatic. His name was given. At the time we didn't know this man, so we had no way of testing the locutions. He was a Cardinal. Later we had the misfortune to meet him. The best way to introduce this future Charismatic pope is the Mass he conducted in Rome.

This Cardinal was the late Belgian Cardinal Leo Suenens, the so-called next pope, or so said hundreds of Charismatic prophets. This is the same Cardinal we personally heard say that no Catholic need obey the Holy Father's encyclical, Humane Vitae.

This may, in fact, be the master plan of the Charismatics. We know from St. Malachy's and Don Bosco's prophesies that the next pope will be one of the holiest popes in history. Another thing that bothers us is the prophecy of Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich. She saw a dark and sinister church growing inside the Catholic Church. This sinister church grew so big that it was almost impossible to stop. Nothing in the past 150 years has been that threatening within except the Charismatics, not even "Call To Action".

Ask a Charismatic what he would prefer, a prayer meeting or the Mass. Ask what he would do if the Church condemned the movement. We have asked. They prefer Spiritualism to the Teaching Authority of the Church, and even to the Sacraments. Does this mean all Charismatics are bad? Yes! As we stated above, just because good people are in amongst them, does not make it from God.

How then is Ralph Martin the one who brought this false spirit of prophesy into the Catholic Church and can we prove that he is not Catholic? Ralph Martin, Steve Clark and Kevin Ranaghan worked in the Newman Center of Michigan State University in East Lansing, Michigan and in the Cursillo Movement. After Ralph Martin, Kevin Ranaghan and Steve Clark were baptized in the spirit in 1967 they were fired from the Newman Center when it was found out that they also were involved with the fundamentalist Protestant Campus Crusade for Christ. They then formed a prayer group of 12 men called, the "Word of God" charismatic group. It grew to more than 100 people in only 4 months. They tied in with a Protestant group called, The Sword of the Spirit. By 1970 they created a real organization with a corporate structure of leaders and sub-leaders. They became a "Covenant Christian Community". By 1972 these people had total control of thousands of members using what they called, "shepherding" but what is essentially a doctrine of control. The top pope was Clark and today it is Ralph Martin. Other groups affiliated with Ralph Martin are: "People of Praise" in South Bend, Ind. headed by Kevin Ranaghan; "The Lamb of God" community in Baltimore, Md.; "People of Hope" community in Berkeley Heights, NJ, "Mother of God" community in England, "Servants of Christ the King" community in Steubenville, Ohio, etc. But the national headquarters for the Catholic Charismatic Renewal is located in South Bend, Ind. and the international headquarters is in Brussels, Belgium. The top authority of the groups is called "Unio Crucis" [Union of the Cross]. Their meetings are secrete and there are never more than 60 members. Their income comes from tithing and from their magazine, "The Word Among Us". The very title of this magazine is what they are all about. They get the "Word" directly from God and not from the teaching authority of the Church. The magazine alone generates from 3 to 5 million a year.

Interesting to note that Father Michael Scanlan, president of Steubenville University was a founding member of "Servants of Christ the King" community and has supported the Protestant group "The Sword of the Spirit". When Bishop Albert H. Ottenweller of Steubenville saw the cult controls that the leadership had over the members he ordered Catholics to separate themselves from the controversial nondenominational evangelical organization, "The Sword of the Spirit". Bishop Ottenweller then went about trying to clean up the University and forced Father Michael Scanlan into separating from the Protestant groups. In order to save face the charismatic group's spin doctors painted the picture that Michael Scanlan cleaned up the University. Keep in mind that it is Father Michael Scanlan that promotes and protects the first marriage of the Marian Movement and the Charismatic Movement - Medjugorje. Keep in mind also that Ralph Martin (a pluralist) and Tom Monaghan (an innocent victim) are both on the board of Steubenville University and both on the board of Fessio's new radio stations.

Now I am going to make a bold statement. "Call To Action" (the left) and the Marian Movement both came out of the Charismatic Movement and both have the same agenda - to lead people away from the Mass and the Sacraments. "Call To Action" makes no secrete that they do not believe in the True Presence. What about the Charismatics and the Marian Movement? First the Charismatics: The following account of the Mass prayed at St. Peter's Basilica in Rome was printed in the "International Catholic Priests Association" published in England by Simon Keegan.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


"Pentecostals' or 'Charismatics' led by the Belgian Cardinal Leo Suenans, came for a Eucharistic celebration. In the vast crowd that filled the Basilica, it was not an uncommon thing to see, what one first thought of as 'white petals' being scattered among the congregation. Only when I could push my way nearer, did I realize that they were handfuls of consecrated Hosts that the Cardinal's 'hench-priests' were scattering among the crowd, to speed up Communion. They fell on the shoulders of men, on the dyed and coverless heads of women, and as was inevitable, not a few on the ground, and were trampled upon by the crowd.

I spoke to a lady standing near me, who was gobbling a number of them together (the consecrated Hosts). I asked her where she came from and was she a Catholic? She came from Egypt, she replied, and in fact had no religious persuasion, but her feelings are in favor of Mohamedism, to which her family belonged, but her fiancée was an Anglican, and she found Pentecostalism Quite exciting."



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


At this Mass in Rome was Ralph Martin who prophesied the Second Coming of Christ in his lifetime speaking from the altar of Peter. In his books "Is Jesus Coming Soon?" and "The Catholic Church at the End of an Age" you can read the same heresies.

Ralph Martin brought into the Church a spirit from outside the Church. This spirit is real. I was a Charismatic (Read my book "The Tongues of Satan"). But this spirit is not from God. As the Charismatic movement began to fade they needed a boost, a Marian boost. Sister Briege McKenna, a leading member of these charismatic cults prayed with "Father' Tomislav Vlasic, who at the time was without faculties for conducting another charismatic charism - "sensitivity training" with young boys and girls. Sister McKenna prophesies to Vlasic that Mary was going to come into his life. When he returned to Medjugorje he found out what she meant. Medjugorje has the same spirit, a spirit that leads people into pluralism and away from the sacraments. I have four witnesses who lived in Medjugorje that not one of the seers attends Mass, even on Sunday unless a crowd of pilgrims are there, and even then they do not go to daily Mass.

The biggest promoter of Medjugorje in America is Denis Nolan from Notre Dame University. Denis Nolan has Ralph Martin on his board of advisors, because Denis Nolan started out in the Charismatic Movement. It was to Ralph Martin that Denis Nolan complained about Unity Publishing and threatened to sue us for telling the truth about Medjugorje. He also promotes Gobbi who prophesied that the real person of the Antichrist would appear in the year 1998, and that Christ would come on this earth in the year 2000 to establish his Kingdom on Earth and walk among us.

Now these people are prophesying the chastisement as though it was Christ's Second Coming and they are turning every true prophesy up side down. No greater example of that is there than Garabandal. There are many who write, fax, call, or e-mail us because of our Testing The Spirit newsletter and web page www.unitypublishing.com. Even those who do not believe in any of the other false mystics have a tough time believing that Garabandal is false because of the signs and wonders around it. And so rather than getting into Medjugorje or Gobbi or Gino or any of the other false mystics, its better to just show proof that the main one, Garabandal, is false.

We could show how the "Virgin" told the children to not bring to Her blessed rosaries and crosses but only un-blessed ones so that She could bless them. And then show that even the Virgin Mother of God cannot bless with a priestly blessing because the priest is in "persona christi", in the place of Christ, and Mary can never be in the place of Christ or a priest. We could show that not even an angel from Heaven can give a priestly blessing but this might take to much theological explanation. We could also show documented proof that Conchita stole a Eucharistic Host from the tabernacle of the Church during the apparitions. We could show proof that the children went up the mountain to steal apples when the apparitions started. We could show proof that Padre Pio did not support the apparitions and never made any statement to Conchita and never sent an clothe to them. We could show proof that Padre Pio never told Joey Lomangino to go there. We could show proof that Garabandal has been condemned by sex local bishops and by Rome four times. We could show how the poor children have no memory of the apparitions, whatsoever, and only know what they read about, proving that they were under a hypnotic demonic trance during that apparitions, and then removed from it, so that an exorcism could not take place. We could show that the idea of a "warning" is like the idea of "rapture" and is designed by Satan to capture people at the moment of death into thinking they are going to be saved at the last minute in order to keep them from last minute confessions and repentance. We could prove that Conchita has married a man with children who was married before and not annulled. All of these we could prove but all we need to do is give one prophesy of Garabandal that will prove it false. This prophesy, however, did fool Malachi Martin.

Quoting from "Marian Apparitions Today - Why So Many?" by Fr. Edward D. O'Connor, C.S.C., pages 19-20 "In 1962, when Pope John XXII died, Mary told Conchita that after Paul VI, there would be only three more popes. When Paul VI died, Mary reiterated that there would be only two more. After the short reign of John Paul I, Mary confirmed that John Paul II is the last. She made it plain, however, that this did not mean that the end of the world was at hand, but only the end of 'an era."

What we ask is this, "Can the world exist without the Catholic Church? If the world continued on without the Catholic Church then the gates of hell have prevailed against her. Can there be a Catholic Church without a pope? Can this be the last pope? The answer is "NO!" We are living in the last age on earth, the sixth generation, and the last generation, the generation of Christ and His Church, the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth, which is the Catholic Church. Christ said to Peter and not to the apostles, "I will be with you all days until the end of the world." The Church teaches two things that destroy both Sedevacanti and Charismatics, and that is, "Where the pope is there is the Catholic Church and where the pope is not there is no Catholic Church." It also teaches that "Where the Holy Spirit is there is the Catholic Church and where the Holy Spirit is not there is not the Catholic Church." Sedevacanti can never happen or the gates of Hell will have prevailed against the Church. "The Broken Chain"??? Never!

This Sedevacanti leads people to believe in an underground Church "operating outside the control of the canonical structure of the church", what we call today "Traditionalists" (not that they are traditional since the greatest of all traditions is that "where the bishop is there is the Church, and where the bishop is not, there is not the church --- whatsoever is done without the bishop is from the devil." -St. Ignatius - Epistle to the Ephesians.)

So you see, we can't bring ourselves to accept even those charismatic prayer groups that have orthodox practices. It has been argued that there are many abuses, but there are also many Charismatics who pray rosaries, have devotion to the Eucharist, to Mary, and to the Teaching Authority of the Church. This may be true, although we have not seen it. Amongst the Arian heretics there were many who did not know they were not in the Body of Christ, the Church. There were many Arians who truly did not know they were praying with heretics. All they knew is that the Bishop and the priests in their town had changed. There are many Charismatics who are very innocent of the main thrust of the movement. This does not make the movement OK or even tolerable in our eyes, anymore than it made the Arians or Masons tolerable just because the rank and file members are innocent. It must be tested like any other movement that claims direct contact with Heaven.

This spirit of Ralph Martin came into the Church in 1967 and has spread throughout the entire world so that every formerly humble and innocent Catholic now thinks he or she has had a direct message from Heaven to do this or that. They do not read orthodox books anymore, only the messages from this or that seer. They are being educated in doctrine directly from Heaven, they say. They are being divided from their priests and bishops, and someday from the next pope, and then they will be true Gnostics, as they will be outside the Ark of Salvation, the Catholic Church.

I have spent over 30 years studying prophecy regarding eschatology (the end times - from now to the end of the world). It is from the teaching of the Church, the Apostolic Fathers, the saints of the Church, and Church approved prophets that I have come to recognize the very false prophets that Queenship promotes.

When I read books like "THE LAST WORLD WAR & THE END OF TIME", THE FINAL HOUR", "THE DAY WILL COME". "THE COMING PERSECUTION", "CALL OF THE AGES", "THE AGE OF ONE FOLD AND ONE SHEPHERD". and the like, I know from thirty years study that they do not know what they are talking about, and lack fundamental knowledge about the future.

Finally, however, I picked up a book, "TRAIL, TRIBULATION & TRIUMPH" by Desmond A. Birch, only to prove that it also was as wrong as these other authors. I could not put it down. I read it over and over. Desmond A. Birch put together a masterpiece. Utilizing Scripture, Tradition, the Saints, the Fathers of the Church, and Church approved Prophets, Desmond systematically proved with heavy documentation what I have been saying for 20 years, that the Antichrist and the Second Coming of Christ cannot happen in my lifetime or my children's lifetime. Trial, Tribulation & Triumph is my 30 years knowledge packed into one book.

The errors of the new (so-called) prophets fit into a common theme ( whether knowingly or not) that will prepare uncausious Catholics into accepting the Antichrist as the real Christ, and into thinking that the mystics hold a higher place in authority than the bishops, scripture, tradition, and the fathers of the Church. We want you to know if you do not already know why false mystics like the seers of Medjugorje or Garabandal are so dangerous to the Church and to souls. The fact we know what the future holds for us. We just do not know when and where. If we know, Satan knows. In the last chapter of a book I wrote called "Apparitions - True or False" I said:



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


We know that Our Lord, Jesus Christ, is not coming soon. Why? Because we know that some things have to happen first. We know that Our Lord, Jesus Christ, will not set up a Kingdom on Earth. Why? Because we know that the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth is the Church. And we know from the Bible that when He comes He will not set His foot on this earth.
What has to happen first? First there must be a "Chastisement of the Earth" in order to bring about one Christian Kingdom and one Church on Earth. We know that this chastisement will last from four to seven years. We know that during the chastisement there will be two very important people, a very holy king, called the "Monarch" and a very holy Pope, a Pope who will be elected outside of Rome in a very fast way, almost certainly the next Pope, "The Glory of the Olive".
We know that after the chastisement there will be only twenty-five percent of the world left, and it will take seven years to bury the dead. We know that the good and the bad will survive. But we also know that the bad will be converted by the Monarch and the Holy Pope.

We know that those who survive the chastisement will have a period of peace that will be without work or needs. We also know that in the first part of this peace everyone will be holy. But we also know that in the second half of this peace faith will fade and become lax.

After this period of peace on earth (we think it will not last more than forty or fifty years) the Antichrist will come. Henoch and Elias will come (maybe even Saint John, the Apostle). The Antichrist will be born in the ruins of Babylon between the two great rivers. He will be born of a Jewish prostitute and a Catholic Bishop. She will pretend to be a virgin. The Child will be able to talk the minute he comes out of the womb. He will appear to be holy, gentle, kind, mild, and charismatic. He will look like Christ, act like Christ, and talk like Christ. He will perform many miracles (or at least what appear to be miracles), and many will follow him. He will convert the Jews first, then the Moslems, and then many Catholics. There will be no other Christian religions on earth at that time.

After converting the Jews and Moslems into one religion, he will rebuild the Temple of Solomon. There he will place himself on a seat in the Holy of Holies and proclaim himself the Son of God. He will cause a great famine over the whole earth, so that no one will have the food he needs. But then he will promise that whosoever comes to the Temple and has his or her hand and forehead marked with his mark will receive all the food he needs for the rest of his life. He will have to go to war against Egypt, Libya, and Africa, but after that all the secular world will come to his side, and he will rule the world. He will outlaw the Continual Sacrifice, the Mass. (Daniel 8:11)

The Pope (whose name will be Peter the Second) and those who refuse to be marked with his mark will go into hiding. Those who cannot hide will be martyred. More Catholics will be martyred during this time than all the two-thousand-year history of the Kingdom put together.

In the last year of his three-and-one-half-year control of the world, he will kill Henoch and Elias and place their bodies in public display in front of the Temple. After the third day, they will come to life and ascend into heaven body and soul by the Power of God.

This will so anger the Antichrist that he will promise the whole world that he, too, will ascend into heaven and bring them back to earth. And on the prescribed day he will ascend up into the sky. However, Christ will strike him dead (as He did to Simon Magus) and he will fall to the earth.

All the people will be very happy because the Antichrist is dead. They will be so happy that they will have parties and celebrations. They will have marriages and will give their children in marriages. And then forty-five days after the death of the Antichrist, there will be a great sign in the sky-The Cross with Christ crucified. All the Jews, who have survived, will see and know that they crucified Him, but it will be too late.

Christ will appear in all his glory with all His Heavenly Hosts, and in the twinkling of an eye, half the people of the world will disappear into Hell. Those remaining will be lifted up body and soul towards Christ, who will remain in the sky. All those in Purgatory will ascend first. All the bodies of those who died from Adam to the time of the Antichrist will come up out of the earth and join their souls in the heavens. All this will take place as those remaining at the end ascend body and soul towards Christ.

Then Christ will wipe away the earth, purgatory, the heavens, and the stars with the movement of his hand. Amen!
How do we know all this? We know it from the Bible: regarding the chastisement, Isaias 24, Ezechiel 39, Daniel 7, Joel 3, and Zachariea 13 and 14; regarding the Antichrist, Dan. 7,8 and 10, Matt. 24, Rev. 20, John 5; regarding the Second Coming of Christ, Matt. 24 and 25, Mark 13, Luke 12 and 21, 1 Cor. 15, 1 Thess. 2, 3, 4 and 5, 2 Peter 3, Rev. 1 and 3, Dan. 12, and Joel 2. We know it from the disciples of the Apostles, like Justin Martyr, Ignatius, Iranaeus, and Clement of Rome who learned from the Apostles Peter, Paul, and John. We know it from the disciples of the disciples of the Apostles like Hippolytus, Cyprian, Augustine and Jerome. We know it from the prophets who have been approved by the Church and by the miracles and prophesies that have already come to pass as listed in the section on prophets.

Now, this is very, very important what we are about to say. If we know this, Satan knows this. Let us repeat that, if we know this, Satan knows this. Let us repeat that again, if we know this, Satan knows this."

Remember, the demons recognized Christ before His followers did. Why? The demons are masters of Scripture. They used Scripture to tempt Christ. They used Scripture to crucify Christ. Simon Magus used scripture to crucify Peter and Paul. Demons know what is going to happen better than we do. In order to counteract the Will of God, they have to make their own plans.

If God is going to chastise the world, the demons know they cannot stop it, but they can confuse people in such a way as to think they will escape it by such stupid things as "rapture" or prophets who say that if you go to this or that hill you will escape, or by claiming that God will give signs before the chastisement, or whatever.

Demons know that a very holy Monarch will come into the world to save the world in the last days of the chastisement. What is their plan? To claim him as the Beast of Revelation! The demons know that a very, very holy Pope will come to save the Church. What is their plan? To claim him to be the Antichrist!

Why would demons have apparitions, locutions, ecstasies, visions, etc., that cause people to be converted, to be more holy, to pray more, to give up sin, to even give up drugs and alcohol? More than just winning souls, Satan wants to mock and stop God. He can mock God by having very holy people worship a false God or a false Mary. He can stop God (or at least slow Him down) by confusing the prophesies that truly come from God.

Some apparitions we have followed for years and years without seeing anything that we could attribute to the demons. Everything seemed so holy to us. Then suddenly a message would come through that would say that the next Pope would be the Antichrist, and we would know that it was not of God. Or one message would say that the Antichrist was already alive, and we would know that it was not of God. Or even that Christ was already on the earth!

All false apparitions of this Century have the same thing in common: They all want to divide the faithful from their bishops. Once they are successful in dividing the faithful from their bishops (by telling them to trust only in the Pope of Rome or the message of the seer), then suddenly a message will come "FROM HEAVEN" that the Pope of Rome is the Antichrist. Who will these faithful, being led astray, be able to turn to then? Only the seers.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


We are running out of time and they (the false mystics) are winning. I communicate with a man, Carlos Evaristo, who lives across the street from Lucia of Fatima and audio tapes all her public conversations. I communicate with Mr. Francis Fukushima, the translator to Sr. Agnes Sasagawa of Akita, Japan. We are running out of time. My best estimate is that everything will start happening on April 1, 1999.

We have been shut off from all Catholic Newsmedia for attacking the likes of Medjugorje, Gobbi, Gino, and Garabandal. The supporters of these mystics have gotten to all the major news outlets of the country and have blackballed us so that we cannot get the message out. The traditional Catholic outlets we can get into, like the Wanderer, where we have an ad almost every week. But the National Catholic Register has gone over to Medjugorje. EWTN has gone Med. Fessio and Terry Barber were just afraid to say anything against Med since 80% of the American Catholics believe in it or one of the other false apparitions. Now to make matters worse, Fessio has had to compromise in order to get the money he needed to buy the radio stations across the country. We are very much in favor of these stations and what Fessio is doing, and we are especially glad that it is Fessio doing it instead of the far right or the far left. But Fessio does not know that he brought into his camp the very man who brought into the Church this false spirit that has spread throughout the Church since 1967.

Fessio is a very good man, but because we cannot compromise on matters of faith, we have alienated my relationship from him. Fessio promotes all the writings of von Balthasar and 90% of these are good; however, Balthasar fell into two heresies, an ignorant Christ and that all men might be saved including Satan. Because we could not leave that rest we have lost a good friend. The second thing that Fessio did was allow Ralph Martin into his operation - meaning his radio stations. Fessio was probably forced to take in Ralph Martin because Ralph Martin has a strong relationship with Tom Monaghan - Domino Pizza. Fessio needed hundreds of millions of dollars to get these radio stations. Tom Monaghan's group "Legatus" an international organization of CEO's, was the only group that could come up with that much money. Even this group and Tom Monaghan are innocent victims of this infiltration. Ralph Martin stands for everything that we are against, and in fact, it was he who brought into the Catholic Church the spirit of false prophecy. This spirit has gone from outside the Church through the laying on of hands to inside the Church and has spread like a cancer throughout the Body of Christ making almost every innocent Catholic think they have a Gnostic direct revelation from God that is infallible. If anyone except a bishop tries to lay hands on you or "slay" you in the spirit, run like hell away from him. This spirit is not from God.

Was Pope Francis Mislead by Schoenborn into Material Heresy by Lie that Amoris Leatitia is "Thomist" ?

-Updated September 28, 2017-

The unscholarly Pope Francis has promoted material heresy, it appears, because he was confused and mislead into thinking Amoris Leatitia is "Thomist" by Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn.

Dubia Cardinal Brandmuller sums up the heresy:

"Whoever thinks that persistent adultery and reception of Holy Communion are compatible is a heretic."
(lifesitenews.com, "Dubia Cardinal: Anyone who opens Communion to adulterers 'some a heretic and promotes schism,'" December 23, 2016)

An example of what appears to have happened to Francis can be found in history.

The unscholarly Pope Honorius was "confused and mislead" into becoming a material heretic who promoted the Monothelitist heresy. He was condemned by a general council and Pope St. Agatho and Pope St. Leo II.

The Catholic Encyclopedia said of Honorius that he "was not a profound theologian, and allowed himself to be confused and mislead.
(Edward Feser.blogspot, "Denial flows into the Tiber," December 18, 2016)

Theologian Tracey Rowland wrote that Francis before the papacy said "I can't imagine anything more boring than Fundamental Theology. She quotes Ross Douthat saying:

"Francis is clearly a less systematic thinker than... his predecessors" to the papacy. (Catholic Theology, page 192)

It was reported that the not very systematic thinker Francis during his visit to Colombia said:

"Amoris Laetitia is Thomist, the morality of the great Thomas. You can speak of it with a great theologian, one of the best today and one of the most mature, Cardinal Schönborn. ."
(National Catholic Register, "Pope to Jesuits: Help Critics of Amoris Leatitia to See Its Morality Is Thomist," September 28, 2017)

In a interview with the Jesuit magazine America Schoenborn said "one who is in an objective situation of sin can receive the help of the sacraments."

Schoenborn in the interview appears to deny that the truths of the Decalogue of Revelation are eternal or objective:

"The complexity of family situations, which goes far beyond what was customary in our Western societies even a few decades ago, has made it necessary to look in a more nuanced way at the complexity of these situations. To a greater degree than in the past, the objective situation of a person does not tell us everything about that person in relation to God and in relation to the church. This evolution compels us urgently to rethink what we meant when we spoke of objective situations of sin. And this implicitly entails a homogeneous evolution in the understanding and expression of the doctrine."
(America, "Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn on the demands and joys of love," August 15-22, 2016)

This is not Thomist, but appears to be soft historicism which comes from Hegel.

Hegelian historicism doesn't believe with Thomism that truth is objective and eternal.

Schoenborn, in his quote above, appears to believe that historical evolution changes the meaning of truth which is anti-Thomist.

The unscholarly Francis bases his statement that "Amoris Leatitia is Thomist" on Schoenborn's authority as "a great theologian."

Unfortunately for Francis, Schoenborn is misrepresenting the truth about Aquinas's teachings and Amoris Leatitia is not Thomist.

Thomist scholar Fr. Basil Cole OP said that Schoenborn's theology and Amoris Leatitia contradicts Thomism:

"Another tangle one can encounter is when quoting Aquinas piecemeal or without full advertence to his theological project. St. Thomas was nothing if not a complete and consistent thinker. To pick and choose his statements without considering their context and relation to his other relevant insights would be about as disastrous as proof-texting Sacred Scripture."

"One might suppose that a situationist ethic is supported by Aquinas when he states, “In matters of action, truth or practical rectitude is not the same for all, as to matters of detail, but only as to the general principles; and where there is the same rectitude in matters of detail, it is not equally known to all. […] The principle will be found to fail, according as we descend further into detail” (ST I-II, q. 94, a. 4; quoted in Amoris Laetitia n. 304). Isolated from Aquinas’s other statements, it could seem as if the doctor of the Church is saying that no moral rule is absolute, but that discernment is needed in each and every situation to know whether or not a general moral principle applies in a particular situation. However, this is not authentic Thomism."

"Situation ethics contradicts Aquinas's firm affirmation that there are some moral norms that always hold for everyone: these are the precepts of the Decalogue (T I-94, q.100, a.8)... Aquinas's teaching is clear: a person should not receive Holy Communion or absolution from sin who does not intend to change his life and forsake public sin... (ST I-94, q.43, a.1)."
(National Catholic Register, "Is 'Amoris Laetitia' Really Thomistic?," December 16, 2016)

So far, all the Filial Correction attackers who are defending Pope Francis are not Thomist, but soft Hegelian historicists who claim there is no objective/eternal morality or discipline.

Francis supporter theologian Giuseppe Lorizio of the Pontifical Lateran University mocked the Correction statement of "eternal discipline" in the area of the Eucharist.

He appears to have forgotten that St. Paul said you can't receive the Eucharist in a state of moral sin such as having sexual relations in an adulterous relationship.

Lorizio claims the discipline came only after the Council of Trent.
(Catholic Conclave, "Anti-Papal manipulation by enemies of the Pope and the Gospel," September 27, 2017)

Gay activist Michael Sean Winters in his attack on the Correction let the Hegelian historicism cat out of the bag.

He went so far as to attack Fr. James Martin defender Archbishop Charles Chaput for daring to criticize soft Hegelian Fr. Bernard Haring. (National Catholic Reporter, "'Correction' of Francis reveals critics don't come in good faith," September 27, 2017)

Winters pointed to the source of their problem with the Correction:

Winters, Lorizio, Schoenborn and, it appears, Pope Francis don't believe in objective morality and promote allowing intrincically evil acts which Haring brought into the Church following the Second Vatican Council.

Schoenborn following in the footsteps of Haring (who Francis praised), it appears, unwittingly said in the America interview that Amoris Laetitia promotes intrincically evil acts:

"In his great experience of accompanying people spiritually, when the Holy Father speaks of “objective situations of sin,” he does not stop short at the kinds of cases that are specified in No. 84 of 'The Family in the Modern World.' He refers in a broader way to “certain situations which do not objectively embody our understanding of marriage. Every effort should be made to encourage the development of an enlightened conscience” while “recognizing the influence of concrete factors” (No. 303).

The conscience plays a fundamental role.
Indeed:
Conscience can do more than recognize that a given situation does not correspond objectively to the overall demands of the Gospel. It can also recognize with sincerity and honesty what for now is the most generous response which can be given to God, and come to see with a certain moral security that it is what God himself is asking amid the concrete complexity of one’s limits, while not yet fully the objective ideal (No. 303)."
(America, "Cardinal Christoph Schoenborn on the demands and joys of love," August 15-22, 2016)

World-renown philosopher, founding Rector of the International Academy of Philosophy, and friend of Pope John Paul II  Josef Seifert in a new paper on Amoris Laetitia said:

"AL says that we can know with 'a certain moral security' that God himself asks us to commit intrinsically wrong acts such as adultery..."

"If only one case of an intrinsically immoral act can be permitted and even willed by God, must this not apply to all acts considered 'intrinsically wrong'?" ("Does pure logic threaten to destroy the entire moral doctrine of the Catholic Church?," August 5, 2017)

In simple words the friend of John Paul II and renown philosopher says:

Pope Francis's Amoris Leatitia says God wills evil.

The philosopher's paper says:

"Let us read the decisive text (AL 303), which is being applied by Pope Francis to the case of adulterous or 'irregular couples'... :

'Yet conscience can do more... the most generous response which can be given to God (Relations Finalise 2015, 85) and come to see with a certain moral security that God himself is asking amid the concrete complexity of one's limits, while yet not fully the objective ideal (AL 303).'"

Fr. Edmundus Waldstein, O. Cist., at sancrucensis.wordpress.com, gives an overview of why Francis praised dissenter Haring and why Amoris Laetitia promotes allowing intrinsically evil acts:

"In a discussion with the General Congregation of the Society of Jesus, the Holy Father praised Fr. Bernard Haring for having helped overcome a decadent scholastic moral theology that had been fixated on negative commandments, and opened up a way for moral theology to flourish. Now, Haring’s moral theology is a great example of what it might mean to begin processes as opposed to occupying spaces." (Dubia and Initiating Processes, December 7, 2016, sancrucensis.wordpress.com)

Even Amoris Laetitia supporter Jeff Mirus in a March 7, 2017 article for Catholic Culture.com said anyone who would praise Haring "as one of the first to give Catholic moral theology new life in the twentieth century must be ignorant, confused, or subversive."

In the beginning of the post, titled "Pope Francis and Bernard Haring: The literally infernal cheek of dissent," Mirus said:

"Pope Francis praised...Fr. Bernard Haring, for being one of the first to try to revive an ailing moral theology following the Second Vatican Council."

The article presented some of the moral theologian's dissenting heretical teachings:

"In his 1973 book Medical Ethics Haring defended sterilization, contraception and artificial insemination...According to Haring, under difficult circumstances, we may engage in a process of discernment which leads to the commission of intrinsically evil acts."

The Kasper proposal agenda which became Amoris Laetitia is in significant segments about allowing intrinsically evil acts such as adultery and implicitly homosexuality. Fr. Z said at his website on April 16, 2016:

"'Homosexuality' was the bigger issue with the Kasperites... This is still the Kasperite strategy."

The Kasper agenda and Amoris Laetitia's unavoidable logic is:

It follows that if unrepentant adulterers can receive Holy Communion, then unrepentant homosexuals can receive the Eucharist, too.

The bigger agenda of Cardinal Kasper, Schoenborn and Haring (besides allowing intrinsically evil acts), which Francis probably doesn't understand, is a Hegelian philosophic idealistic subjective metaphysics of historical becoming which denies the eternal and/or objective truths of the Classical Greek/Thomistic metaphysics of being.

Waldstein, O. Cist., explains:

"This is a soft version of certain strands of modern historicism, indebted to Hegel. Having abandoned nature, and an objective teleological order, Hegel and some of his followers give to history a role analogous to that played by nature in classical philosophy.... Haring is proposing something similar for the life of the Church."

"I call this sort of historicism “soft” since its proponents would not all be willing to affirm the dark core of Hegel’s account of the good. But by adopting historicist terms they tend to draw conclusions that imply the basically subjectivist, modern account of the good, and the account of freedom that follows from it. Thomas Stark has shown how these problems play out in the theology of Cardinal Kasper." [https://sancrucensis.wordpress.com/2016/12/07/dubia-and-initiating-processes/#more-5361

The Classical Greek/Thomistic philosophy of being or objective truth and Revelation is the basis of all Catholic infallible doctrinal and moral teachings as well as the basis of Western Civilization and offshoots of it such as charity, objective universal human rights and science.

Thomas Woods in the book "How the Catholic Church Build Western Civilization" explains in detail why and how the Church and Classical Greek/Thomistic philosophy alone guarantee sound objective moral teachings and a civilization that brings about charity, human rights and science.

If intrinsically evil acts are allowed through a denial of objective truth and objective Revelation to become the norm in our culture, then not only does Catholic doctrinal and moral teachings collapse, but Western Civilization, also, collapses.

Prayer for Conversion of Pope Francis

Jesus said to St. Faustina:

"When you say this prayer with a contrite heart and with faith... I will give the grace of conversion."

 This is the prayer:

"O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fount of Mercy for us, I trust in You." (Divine Mercy Diary 186, 187)

Say this prayer every day for the general intention of the conversion of Pope Francis and that the courage of St. Paul be given to the dubia Cardinals.

The specific intention of the prayer is for Francis to answer the dubia questions of the four Cardinals. If he doesn't answer soon then may a torrent of grace give the dubia Cardinals the courage to issue the correction.

In no way do I mean this request for prayer to dishonor Pope Francis. I do not want to commit the sin of railing.

I honor the Office of Peter that he holds.

St. Paul honored St. Peter, but when he clearly witnessed Peter manifesting error and confusion on the infallible teachings of the Church by his actions & words, he "rebuked" or corrected him for the good of the first Pope and the Church.

As in the time of Paul, it is now very clear that Francis is manifesting error and confusion on the infallible teachings of the Church by his actions & words.

In this website, I have tried to present the evidence in a straight forward manner without polemics although sometimes I implicitly used humor.

I may have used and I have quoted others who used a tone that could be considered harsh, but not, I believe, different from the tone Paul used on Peter.

Please read the posts in this website for clear evidence of Pope Francis's errors.

Please remember what a great priest in our present troubled time said:

We get the leaders we deserve. What have we done to preserve the Catholic faith? Have we prayed and practiced our Catholic life? Or do we just talk about it? In that case we get what we deserve.

Please pray and practice your Catholic faith for your sake, for your family and friends sake and for the Church.

Pray especially for Francis and Cardinal Burke & the dubia Cardinals.

The most reliable Vatican expert in the world Edward Pentin reported on why it is of the upmost importance to pray for the Pope:

"Whatever the exact truth behind the lurid and disturbing story, it has further exposed such gravely sinful behavior taking place in the Vatican that one senior member of the curia says has 'never been worse.'”
"According to reports in the mainstream media, Vatican police broke up a drug-fueled homosexual debauched party in an apartment of the Holy Office, but how true is it?"

"The news first broke in a June 28 article in Il Fatto Quotidiano..."

"The article’s author, Francesco Antonio Grana, says Pope Francis, whose Santa Marta residence is just 500 yards from the Holy Office, was aware of the raid and knew of the monsignor’s capture..."
"In the meantime, a reliable senior member of the curia has told the Register that he has heard from “multiple sources” that the story is true, including from another senior curial figure."

"He said the extent of homosexual practice in the Vatican has 'never been worse...'”

"The precise details of the reported events in the CDF therefore remain open to question, but the substance of the story appears to be true. If so, many would find such behavior taking place in the Holy Office not only unconscionable but also highly sacrilegious..."

"In light of the latest scandal and the current situation, one former official urged readers to recall the warnings of the Lord on homosexual acts, especially between priests, as explained by St. Catherine of Siena in her Dialogues written as if dictated by God Himself."

"The medieval mystic, co-patron of Rome and Doctor of the Church, relayed the words at a time when a number of clergy had fallen into grave sin."

"Such priests, the Lord told St. Catherine, not only fail from resisting their fallen nature, 'but do even worse as they commit the cursed sin against nature [homosexual acts].'”

“'Like the blind and stupid having dimmed the light of the understanding, they do not recognize the disease and misery in which they find themselves,' the Lord continued, adding that it not only causes God 'nausea, but displeases even the demons themselves, whom these miserable creatures have chosen as their lords.'”

"He added that 'this sin against nature is so abominable that, for it alone, five cities were submersed, by virtue of the judgement of My Divine Justice, which could no longer bear them.' The Lord told St. Catherine that even the demons are 'repulsed upon seeing such an enormous sin being committed.'”

"As a remedy, St. Catherine recounted the Lord saying:
'Never cease offering me the incense of fragrant prayers for the salvation of souls, for I want to be merciful to the world. With your prayers and sweat and tears, I will wash the face of my bride, Holy Church. I showed her to you earlier as a maiden whose face was all dirtied as if she were a leper. The clergy and the whole of Christianity are to blame for this because of their sins, though they receive their nourishment at the breast of this bride.'”
