THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH
Her Doctrine and Morals
31 May 2009
If we look closely we see that there is a chain of events that brings us to God, and if we depart from the chain at any link we will fail to reach our goal of eternal happiness with God in Heaven.
We must begin with faith. We must believe in Jesus Christ. That He is the second Person of the Blessed Trinity. That He is both God and Man. Etc.
This faith brings us logically to the hearing of His words. Our faith fills us with a desire to hear what He has to say to us. And next, we come to love. Our love is measured by the extent that we not only hear the words of Christ but by the extent that we keep His words.
The love of Him draws us into a closer relationship with each of the Persons of the Blessed Trinity. God has loved us first with the greatest love possible. This draws all right ordered souls to return this love. We cannot love in equal measure to the love that was first given to us, so we are left to love with all that we are and all that we have _ completely.
But, what does the Paraclete do for us? He brings to our minds all the things that Christ has said and done. As we open up our hearts and minds to the Holy Ghost we learn more of the words of Christ. As we learn more of the Word of God our love draws us to a more perfect obedience and we are brought more into conformity with God.
Those who do not believe in Christ do not love God and are therefore damnable. Those who may believe but do not obey do not truly love Him and they are therefore damnable. Thus we see that the majority will be lost because the majority does not love Him because they do not keep the words of Christ.
The pagans are lost, those who claim to love God but reject Christ are lost, those who refuse obedience to His word are lost. Those who will not hear the voice of His representatives will not hear Him, nor will they hear the Father who sent Him, and in not hearing Him they cannot love Him, and in not loving Him they are lost. It is not enough to just proclaim faith in Jesus Christ. (Faith without works is dead.) We must order our lives upon this faith which brings us back to keeping His words.
We see the vast number of non-Christians lost; we see the vast number of sects separated from the Catholic Church is likewise lost. The Holy Ghost only dwells in the Catholic Church. Outside of Her there is no salvation. But, how many who are within the Church will be saved? How many can truly say that they love Christ, and they can attest to it by their actions (keeping His word)?

Weakland cancels move to East Coast
By Annysa Johnson
Posted: May. 26, 2009
Retired Milwaukee Catholic Archbishop Rembert G. Weakland has decided not to move to an East Coast abbey this summer, though he and the head of the monastery on Tuesday offered differing explanations of the decision.
Weakland said he rescinded his plans to move to St. Mary's Abbey in Morristown, N.J., on May 18 after Abbot Giles Hayes expressed concerns about his presence in the wake of a New York Times story recounting revelations in his forthcoming memoir.
"It seemed evident to me that they thought my presence there might be a negative element for the school and monastery," said Weakland, who discusses his homosexuality and his handling of clergy sex abuse in the book, "A Pilgrim in a Pilgrim Church," which is due out this month.
St. Mary's is home to Delbarton School, a prestigious boys college preparatory school operated by the Benedictine monks of St. Mary's, about 35 miles from Manhattan.
Giles, who is the former headmaster of the school, said Weakland changed his plans without explanation a week earlier, and that he had no reason to believe controversy surrounding the book played a role.
Weakland said that the day he sent the e-mail offering his withdrawal, the Benedictine community was scheduled to meet to discuss concerns about his move.
"I put in the option that I would withdraw if it was a problem," he said.
Weakland, 82, said he would remain in Milwaukee.
Weakland, who served as Milwaukee archbishop beginning in 1977, retired in 2002 after it was revealed that he had paid $450,000 to a man who accused him of date rape in 1979.
He is a central figure in pending civil fraud lawsuits alleging the Milwaukee Archdiocese moved pedophile priests to other jurisdictions without divulging their histories.
Weakland has drawn fire in recent weeks for his revelations in the book, among them an assertion that bishops early on considered sex abuse of minors as a moral evil rather than a crime.

Bugnini was the chief architect of the Novus Ordo after Vatican II, and Weakland was a known at the time to be a flaming Modernist -- as well as a flaming homosexual, as he now admits. It is not surprising that the two go together. When you destroy the Catholic Faith, you destroy Catholic morals. Benedict-Ratzinger is yet another example of this principle, as he leads Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal. Weakland and Bugnini shoveled out the radical changes of the Modernists at Vatican II with Paul VI's "papal blessing" to go out and destroy the Catholic Mass, Sacraments, doctrine, and morals by fabricating a Protestant/Masonic/Pagan service.

Her Doctrine and Morals
Sunday after the Ascension
24 May 2009
"They will put you out of the synagogues: yea, the hour cometh that whosoever killeth you will think that he doth a service to God."
History seems to have made a complete circle. Those with the true faith are always in the minority and are forced out and even excommunicated by the non-believers and heretics. The true believers were forced into the catacombs or private or hidden places, because they were not welcome in the buildings that were once houses of God. We see the same today as we often have to have Mass in private homes, rented hotel rooms, funeral parlors, etc.
The beautiful churches that were built by our Catholic ancestors for the use of Catholics are now in the hands of heretics and have had much if not all things sacred removed from them; they have been desecrated by false religious ceremonies.
Those that have kept some of the Catholic ornamentation and symbolism have become nothing short of museums rather than places of worship.
It is nauseating to see what the heretics have done to the houses of God. They are truly now dens of thieves, because they rob the people of the grace of God, and even the very means of His grace.
Though we are not yet routinely killed or even threatened with death there are a goodly number that have wished that we were dead, and I am sure that these people think that in some perverse way they are pleasing to God.
What have we learned from today's gospel and from the history of the Church?
Let us not be scandalized as our Lord warns us. If they have done this to Him what can we expect if we are His disciples? To be hated by the world; to be hated by the majority should be a badge of honor because the world and the majority hated Christ. Let us not fear the cross and suffering. Let us not fear the criticisms and insinuations of the heretics. Let us learn to love our cross and cherish it as it makes us like unto Christ.
The Shepherd's vicar has been struck and the sheep have been scattered. We find small groups and even individuals scattered here and there throughout the world. The truly blessed ones are able to attend the true Mass on Sundays, some may have the sacraments only once a month or once a year, and some even less than this.
The Apostles and the early Church were forced to endure this cross and we too are called upon to bear the same cross. We see in our day that the Church is sorely pressed and persecuted.
Let us not become pusillanimous. These sufferings and persecutions of the Church are clear testimonies in favor of her divine origin. Let us cling to the true bride of Christ and shun the harlot of the devil. Let us cling firmer to the Church the more she is oppressed and persecuted, consoling ourselves with the promise and assurance of Christ that the gates of hell shall never prevail against her.
The temptation is often very strong to conform or compromise the faith so that we can "get along" with our family, friends, and neighbors. And this is a very powerful weapon in the hands of the devils and all those who hate Christ. We must resist this temptation. The thought of living our lives only for God may prove a useful weapon against this temptation. It matters not what those around us think or say; the only thing that should concern us is what does God think of us and what will He say to us on the day of judgment? With this thought in mind we will find the strength to resist the onslaught of temptations proffered to us by our "loved" ones. We should, even like the Apostles before us, find consolation in being singled out and ostracized for our faith in Christ.
We must not let any passion reign in our hearts, for it is the passions that mostly blind men, so that they hold the greatest sins and vices to be right and lawful and even stamp them as virtues. Listen to the sermons given by true priests of Christ and avoid those of the heretics. Read good Catholic books and avoid the heretical and modernist ones. Live humbly and piously so that we may follow Christ into Heaven.

By RACHEL LA CORTE, Associated Press Writer Rachel La Corte,
OLYMPIA, Wash. – A 66-year-old woman with terminal cancer has become the first person to die under Washington state's new assisted suicide law, an advocacy group said Friday. Linda Fleming, of Sequim, died Thursday night after taking drugs prescribed under the "Death with Dignity" law that took effect in March, said Compassion & Choices of Washington.
The organization said Fleming was diagnosed last month with advanced pancreatic cancer. She would have had to have been diagnosed by two doctors as terminal in order to qualify for assisted suicide.
The group said Fleming died at home with her family, her dog and her physician at her bedside.
"The pain became unbearable, and it was only going to get worse," Fleming said in a statement released by the organization.
A physician prescribed the medication, but under the law, patients must administer the drugs themselves.
The new law was approved in November with nearly 60 percent of the vote. It is based on a 1997 Oregon measure, under which about 400 people have ended their lives...
They do evil and think they are doing good. How sad - her pain could have been offered in union with the sufferings of our Savior for her salvation and the salvation of others, instead her suffering is only a prelude to her eternal torments.
This is such an affront to God. Who are we to say to God - "This suffering that you have sent me is "unbearable" and therefore I will violate your commandments and kill myself."
Any suffering that God gives us or allows us to endure is for our own good!

Will the FBI fool anybody of importance into believing that those idiots are terrorists? Years ago the criminal Jews could instigate wars, attack Navy ships, and blow up office buildings, but lately all they've been doing is idiotic crimes, such as setting up these idiots to be arrested as terrorists. Finally, after centuries, their crime network is failing, so don't ruin this opportunity to get rid of them. Encourage people to help us expose and stop this network!
16 He that believeth and is baptized, shall be saved: but he that believeth not shall be condemned. 17 And these signs shall follow them that believe: In my name they shall cast out devils: they shall speak with new tongues. 18 They shall take up serpents; and if they shall drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them: they shall lay their hands upon the sick, and they shall recover. 19 And the Lord Jesus, after he had spoken to them, was taken up into heaven, and sitteth on the right hand of God. 20 But they going forth preached everywhere: the Lord working withal, and confirming the word with signs that followed.

Jay Michaelson -- Forward (New York) … The most notorious of all the “Jesus texts” [in the Talmud], however, is BT Sanhedrin 43a, which describes the halachic procedure of Jesus’ trial and execution … Shockingly, however, the Talmud does not shirk responsibility for Jesus’ death. On the contrary, it says that he deserved it and that the Jews did it themselves. Jesus was, the text relates, a sorcerer, an idolater and a heretic who led Israel to idolatry. His conviction was entirely just, and his execution — stoning and then hanging — was carried out in strict accordance with rabbinic law … The texts in Schafer’s book are still dangerous. They still might incite violence against Jews.
Pardon the following quote from this article - but it is important for people to understand what Judaism really teaches about our Lord and Savior - and please remember - this quote comes from an article in Forward - one of the largest and most mainstream Jewish publications in America!
"The image of Jesus that one gets from the Talmud is that of an illicit, sex-crazed black magician who uses trickery to lead Israel astray. In BT Sanhedrin 103a, Jesus is depicted as a poor disciple who “spoiled his food,” which Schafer speculates may be a euphemism for sexual misconduct: “to eat the dish” being a recognized Talmudic euphemism known for the sex act itself. A later emendation adds that he “practiced magic and led Israel astray.” And the virgin birth is ridiculed as a cover-up of Jesus’ true parentage: His mother was an “illicit woman” (another Talmudic locution), perhaps even a prostitute."
consider this quote:
"Surely, some of the Jesus fad is due to the success of David Klinghoffer’s 2005 book, “Why the Jews Rejected Jesus.” (Answer: We’re the chosen people — a nation, not universalists.) But I think a lot of it is also due to our increased confidence as an assimilated minority in the United States. Where once we could have been tortured or burned for not accepting Christ, now we can publish books criticizing him."
When I have pointed out these teachings from the Talmud (the highest and most "holy" book in Judaism) - I have been accused of lying, anti-semitism, hate, etc...
Here we have the Jews admitting it themselves. I have exposed the Talmud to protestants who support Judaism and they just call me a liar or an anti-semite, novus ordo "catholics" just don't care, and some claim it doesn't matter.
Well it is not a lie, it is not anti-semitic, and it does matter - we need to expose what this evil racist religion teaches, billions of our tax dollars go to support this false religion and its illegal and immoral nation.

Do not confuse Girl Scouts with Boy Scouts - they are two distinct and separate organizations that have nothing to do with each other at all. For the time being, Boy Scouts still requires a profession of faith in God, bans homosexual leaders and members, and does not teach this new age spirituality nonsense. Girl Scouts - as you will see in the article below is much different.
Girl Scouts exposed: Lessons in lesbianism
Communists, radical feminists cited as role models for troops
By Chelsea Schilling
When many parents think of Girl Scouts, they imagine young girls in uniform selling Thin Mints and Tagalong cookies – not learning about stone labyrinths, world peace, global warming, yoga, avatars, smudging incense, Zen gardens and feminist, communist and lesbian role models.
But that's exactly what many of 2.7 million Girl Scouts will learn about with a new curriculum called "Journeys" released last year...
Our priest, Fr. Bernard, warned us about Girl Scouts many years ago and forbid members to allow their girls to join that evil organization and told us all that we should not support that organization in anyway at all - including buying their cookies!
Below is a cut & paste of a comment from the anonymous poster - I will add my comments in red:
First, I never claimed Vezelis belonged to the SSP... First, I never claimed Vezelis belonged to the SSPX. I said he was associated with Lefebvre and the SSPX, which he was. He performed illegal masses for them. (If Bishop Louis was associated at all with Lefebvre it was for a short time until he realized what Lefebvre was all about - there was much confusion after the apostasy of Vatican II.)
Second, sorry, but writing a book attacking and denouncing Lefebvre does not equal an abjuration. The Dimond's attack and denounce Wathen and Wojtyla, does that mean they have abjured? No. It's been 10 years and they've still haven't taken an abjuration. According to Canon law, you must take a formal abjuration with at least two witnesses to enter the Catholic Church. (Do you see how bizarre and absurd this character is? According to this clown - the dozens of articles, books, and public speeches made by Bishop Louis Vezelis exposing Lefebvre as an impostor without valid orders, exposing his "society" as an illegal and non-catholic entity, etc... - this does not constitute an abjuration - what a nut case)
Of course, any abjuration Vezelis takes will be worthless anyway since he's a heretic. (Here the nut exposes himself for what he really is - in other words - no matter what Bishop Vezelis does - it will not be good enough in his book - you see - the real problem that these clowns have is with valid and legitimate authority - they want to be their own authority - they hire independent priests who do THEIR bidding - they do not want a Bishop who has authority over them!)
Third, no one here is a Feeneyite. I denounce the apostate Feeney. I'm a Catholic who follows what the Catholic Church infallibly taught at the Councils of Vienna, Florence, and Trent. Unlike Vezelis who would rather follow heretical catechisms, theologians, and phony "holy office" documents from heretic psuedo-"Cardinals". (Again we see the insanity of these folks - the term "fenneyite" is known to refer to the specific heresy of Fr. Feeney in his absolute denial of the Church teaching regarding Baptism by Desire and Blood - he is trying to dance around this issue by claiming he denounced Fr. Feeney - but he does not denounce the heresy that is referred to the "feeneyite heresy". - This is the typical double speak of heretics and apostates - much like you see in the Vatican II church and all heretical sects)
The Catholic Church has NEVER taught Baptism of Desire. Name one council that taught Baptism of Desire (Trent didn't teach it, so don't lie. If Trent taught it, it would contradict itself). Name one pope who pontifically taught Baptism of Desire (Innocent III in a private letter is not a pontifical teaching. It was prior to the Council of Vienna anyway. And Pius XII was a heretic who lost his office, so you can't use his heretical 1951 speech since it was invalid).
(Here are a few examples of Church teaching regarding Baptism by Desire:
Pope Innocent II - Apostolicam Sedem - to the Bishop of Cremona:
"To your inquiry we respond thus: We assert without hesitation (on the authority of the Holy Fathers Augustine and Ambrose) that the priest whom you indicated (in your letter) had died without the water of baptism, because he persevered in the faith of holy mother the Church and in confession of the name of Christ, was freed from original sin and attained the joy of the heavenly fatherland. Read (brother) in the eighth book of Augustines City of God where among other things is written, "Baptism is administered invisibly to one whom not contempt of religion but death excludes." Read again the book also of the blessed Ambrose concerning the death of Valentinian where he says the same thing. Therefore, to questions concerning the dead, you should hold the opinion of the learned Fathers, and in your church you should join in prayers and you should have sacrifices offered to God for the priest mentioned."
The same Pope also said in Debitum pastoralis offcii - August 28, 1206:
"If however, such a one died (who was not validly baptized) immediately, he would have rushed to his heavenly home without delay because of the faith of the Sacrament, although not because of the Sacrament of Faith"
From the Council of Trent:
"...(justification of the sinner) cannot be effected except through the laver of regeneration (baptism), OR A DESIRE FOR IT, as it is written: "Unless a man be born again of water and the Holy Spirit, he cannot enter into the Kingdom of God."
Vezelis may be validly consecrated, but he is NOT a LEGAL bishop. He's a heretic and holds no office in the Catholic Church. Tell me, are the Greek bishops legal bishops? Why not? Because they're not Catholic. They have zero jurisdiction, they hold zero office, thus they are ILLEGAL (illicit).
There are Greek Catholic Bishops the Byzantine rite of the Catholic Church. Your so-called point is absurd - according to the thinking of these apostates protestants who pretend to be Catholics - there is no Bishop with any authority because there is no valid and legitimate pope to grant it - these fools do not realize that ordinary jurisdiction comes directly from the Holy Ghost through the Sacrament of Holy Orders. According to them - then - there is no one who has any authority at all in the Church today - isn't that nice for them - they become their own authority - very protestant of them - isn't it - no one will tell them what they must believe - they can interpret Church teachings how ever THEY see fit.
You and Vezelis are still apostates of the Vatican II sect until you can prove otherwise by presenting a written abjuration. (I addressed this insane "point" above).
What a sad state these proud arrogant fools are in.
Fr. Giles O.F.M.
"Traditional" heresies are those that are not new but have resurfaced especially today in the "Traditionalist" movement. These heresies, as so many others, generally start with disobedience. As it seems almost impossible to identify them all, I will give a general outline of different positions which are held, along with the names of the more "renowned" who hold to each position. As is often the case with heretics, it becomes increasingly difficult to place them into just one category. For to deny one teaching of the Catholic Church is to deny them all. And as of old the new heretics become schismatics and the schismatics become heretics. They appear as nothing more than two sides of the same coin. The first group to be mentioned are those who hold to the position of:
No Authority in the Church. The "Traditionalists" have often correctly seen and condemned the errors of the Modernists, but many fall into another trap of the devil. They see (correctly) that since the implementation of the false council of "Vatican II" the majority of the hierarchy has been corrupted and now are no longer Catholic, and therefore conclude at least in practice that they do not need the hierarchy and can guide themselves.
This thinking is very much along the same lines as many Protestants _ they can deal directly with God themselves and do not need the clergy. They therefore deny one of the four marks of the true Church - Apostolicity. Many of these individuals preach, print, and publish their own brands of fantasy religion - all without authorization from any bishop. Examples: The Matt brothers' "The Wanderer" and "The Remnant", a publication from Louisville KY called "Veritas", etc.
The Good Pope, bad Bishops and Priests. The next in line are those who say that most of the bishops and priests have fallen into error, but the pope is a good pope, and that he does not know what is going on, or is incapable of doing anything about it.
They claim that they are united with this man, but not united with those whom this man places or keeps in positions of authority. These would like to believe that the Church is Papal and not Apostolic.
The Church is not a monarchy, but is Apostolic and has bishops who are successors to the apostles with the right and obligation to rule their respective flocks in the name of God. The Church clearly teaches that the Bishop receives this power directly from the Holy Ghost at the time of his consecration.
If this man is a pope and has united with himself these "bishops" around the world, then we must obey these "bishops" because they are united with the "pope". If you deny these "bishops" then you must logically deny the "pope" who is the principle of unity for all these "bishops". Example: Almost all of those "conservatives" who remain in the Novus Ordo (New Order Church); or those "Traditionalists" who so eagerly jump from the frying pan into the fire, such as Una Voce.
Heretical Pope. There are those who will clearly see the problems with the thinking above but fall into another error. They will say that this man is the pope but, that he is a bad pope. They will openly claim that the pope is a heretic, but they still call him the pope. They would have a heretic, (an excommunicated person) who is outside the Church, to be the visible head and principle of unity for the Church of which he is not even a member!
The most common example of this strange thinking is the Lefebvrites and their so called "Society of St. Pius X", and their splinter groups. Mention also should be made of George De Nantes.
Some have even developed a fantastic "logic" which uses philosophical sounding terms to try to convince themselves and others that we have a "material" pope, but not a "formal" one. A first year philosophy student should be able to see that all matter must have a form. Matter cannot exist without a form. Therefore, logically a "material" (and non formal) pope is no pope at all. Among those who hold to this "material, non-formal Pope" are: des Lauriers, Robert McKenna, and others.
Sede Vacantists & [No authority left in the Church]. There are those who say that we do not have a pope - Sede Vacante (the See is Vacant) and therefore there is no authority left in the Church.
These basically hold a strange combination of the above paragraphs. They say the man presenting himself as the pope is a heretic and therefore is not a pope and all those "bishops" united to him are likewise outside the Church because they are in union with a heretic, and very often are clearly heretics themselves.
These individuals will recognize other bishops who have been validly consecrated as being the leaders of the Church, yet they say these leaders have no authority or jurisdiction because they did not receive a mandate from a pope or are not in union with a pope. They maintain that these few bishops may suggest or give advice but in no way can they teach or lead, because they have no jurisdiction and therefore no authority.
These poor misguided souls fail to see that if the bishop has no jurisdiction he cannot preach, hear confessions, marry, or confirm anyone. And therefore practically speaking he is no bishop at all. Among these can be counted many of the sect started by Schuckardt from Spokane, Washington known as The Congregation of Mary Queen of The Universe, Robert McKenna, and others.
The Mass is all that matters. This group will accept anything as long as they have their "Latin Mass". It is as if they have started a "Latin is Lovely Club".
These people do not care at all about the Laws of the Church or her doctrines, they are unconcerned about Apostolicity, jurisdiction, or authority, as long as they have their ceremonies. It makes no difference to them whether they go to the Novus Ordo (Modernist new order Church of Vatican II) "Indult Mass," an apostate, or heretical one, as long as it is done in Latin. This group has made it possible for many "independent" clergy to spring up.
Independent priests, chapels, etc. These deny the mark of unity of the Church and they also deny the Apostolicity of the Church. They present themselves as Catholics, but obey no one.
These are in essence schismatics, who must ultimately deny that the bishops of the Church have any authority over them and therefore are likewise heretics. Among these are: Rev James Wathen, Louisville KY, Pulvermacher, and others.
Self-made popes. There are several individuals who have correctly come to the conclusion that we are in a state of Sede Vacante (Vacant See - No Pope), and have sought by hook or crook to make themselves the next pope.
Perhaps the most recent is Father Pulvermacher, who got himself elected by laymen. He then made some "Cardinals" and "bishops". Then he had a "bishop" he himself made turn around and make himself (Pulvermacher) a "bishop". (It's circular logic. Don't try to understand it - you'll go crazy.) He clearly denies apostolic succession or re-creates his own.
There are also some who claim to be mystically elected like one who calls himself "Pope Gregory XIII" in Canada. There is a layman (David Baudin) who had his friends and family elect him pope. There is a large sect in Spain that ordained and consecrated many men and young boys who later elected him pope. And many others.
These poor souls and those who follow them came to the correct conclusion - there is no pope, but they allowed their pride and vanity to blind them to simple doctrine found in almost any Catechism. They tried so desperately to make a pope that they were in many cases blind to the fact that the pope must be a bishop and have valid and licit succession.
Pseudo clergy and religious. There are many who in this time of crisis present themselves as clergy when in fact their orders are invalid, or at best highly suspect.
The Church clearly teaches that if there is the slightest reasonable doubt about the validity of the ordination it must be repeated. These individuals are nothing more than laymen pretending to be priests, just like the Protestant Anglican Church's "clergy". The Church has clearly stated that Anglican orders are invalid; their "priests" and "bishops" are not what they pretend to be. We have this same thing in the Novus Ordo today and, sadly enough among many of the "traditionalists" also. The best known examples of this are: Lefebvre, and all those who trace their ordination to him, and Mr. Nicholas Gruner a.k.a. "Rev. Nicholas Gruner"
Likewise there are many who are trying to create their own religious communities or are trying to re-establish a religious order which has died out because of the Novus Ordo. These arrogant individuals are trying to usurp the authority of a Pope and/or bishops. To establish a new community requires the approval of a bishop for his diocese, or the approval of the pope for the world. Thus any "religious" community they attempt to establish is null and void, invalid and illicit. The same holds true for many individuals who without any valid and legitimate visible connection to a previously existing approved order, pretend to re-create that order themselves.
These are many:
The Society of St. Pius X
The Society of St. Pius V (Founder: Mr. Clarence Kelly a.k.a. "Bishop" Clarence Kelly)
The Monks of Sion (Rev. Nugent, Oregon)
The Benedictine Monks in Alabama
The Benedictine Monks of Berlin, NY (Founder: Joseph Natoli) Now located in Filmore,NY under a "Bro." Michael Dimond, OSB
The Congregation of Mary Queen of The Universe (Founder: Francis Schuckardt, Spokane, WA)
The Servants of Jesus and Mary (Constable NY, Founder, Mr. Nicholas Gruner a.k.a. "Rev. Nicholas Gruner")
Order of St. John (Rev James Wathen, Louisville KY)
Feeneyites (Boston Heresy). These deny the Church's teaching of Baptism of blood and of desire. They take to an illogical extreme the Church's teaching of no salvation outside the Church. They hold that God cannot use extra-ordinary means for the salvation of a soul. Their position is the diametrical opposite of the modernist ecumenical heresy that everyone is going to heaven. The Catholic Church clearly holds to a middle ground (virtue is in the middle); both extremes are condemned. Among those that hold to this extreme view are: Rev James Wathen, Bro. Michael Dimond, OSB, etc.
All those who wish to be Roman Catholics must watch with great care and avoid any religious association with these here mentioned or any like them who hold to these or similar "Traditonal" heresies. To support these individuals or sects is to participate in their errors, and at the very least makes one guilty of giving scandal. A person's very presence at the services of these heretics is in essence an acceptance or condoning of their errors.
I can handle protestant heretics because they are so deluded by their Judas-goat "pastors" but one thing I just cannot stomach is an attack by a so-called "catholic" against our Bishop. Such attack just came into our box.
I just wonder why these losers wont post their names!! At least AW connects us to his site where we can openly see his heresy and comment on it. This "guy" (and I use that word in it's true meaning - scoundrel) shows his true hatred for the Church and our Bishop. Here is his comment :
Unfortunately, you are not a Catholic. You promote the heretic Louis Vezelis. Vezelis was illegally consecrated by George Musey, who was illegally consecrated by the apostate Thuc. Vezelis also teaches the heresy of baptism of desire. On top of this, Vezelis has never publicly abjured of his assosiation with the apostate Lefebvre and the SSPX.
So you see my dear fellow Catholics, the worst attacks come from those who claim to be "catholic" but are so incredibly ignorant and foolish as to send an anonymous comment filled with hateful lies that we will no doubt rip to shreds over the next few weeks. Please feel free to comment openly to this poor deluded soul.
When Pope returns from turkey hunting, he will no doubt have a bunch to say about this, but I'd like to address the "BAPTISM OF DESIRE" issue by posting an excerpt from an article straight out of the Seraph. The Catholic Church has ALWAYS taught that there are three forms of baptism: water, blood and desire. Of course, water is the preferred method! Then a heretic priest came along by the name of Fr. Feeney and said that it was "water only". Here is what the Church truly teaches on this:
The Church's teaching on this point is clear to those who are not blinded by some kind of counter-desire. The Church teaches that no one can be saved without Baptism of water or its desire.
In this case, the desire may be implicit, namely, not yet realized in fact, or physically. For this reason St. Augustine states that God is not held to give grace only through the Sacraments. God can give grace outside the Sacraments: He can give the effective grace of the Sacrament without the external, physical Sacrament.
Those who deny this are termed by the Church to be heretics. Such was the case with the Jesuit, Father Feeney who promoted the error that baptism of water alone can save.
As you can see, there are the two extremes: The narrow-minded limitations of a rigid position and the broad-minded flexibility of the Modernists. The Church's position is between these two erroneous extremes.
For those who hold the first position, namely, that no one can be saved without the express reception of the Sacrament of Baptism, we might offer as a reply the words of Jesus Himself when He condemned adultery.
Jesus said: "You have heard that it was said to them of old: Thou shalt not commit adultery. But I say to you, that whosoever shall look on a woman to lust after her, hath already committed adultery with her in his heart." (St.Matthew 5, 27-28).
Obviously, our Lord is talking about the `implicit desire' to commit adultery. This `implicit desire' to commit adultery is sufficient to be guilty of the actual act itself.
Note well: Our Lord says that the implicit desire has already realized the deed in the man's heart.
Here is a very good explanation of baptism including desire and blood:
That is a start - there will be more to come!
As far as Bishop Louis not publicly adjuring his association with Lefebre and the SSPX that is a laughable lie. He WROTE A BOOK taken from his very public articles in the SERAPH denouncing him and all he stood for!! Please anonymous - get a copy and read it before you make such stupid, ridiculous comments!!!

THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH
Her Doctrine and Morals
St. Paschal Baylon
17 May 2009
Pope Leo XIII has elevated St. Pascal Baylon to be the patron of all Eucharistic societies and congresses. This humble Franciscan lay brother was born May 17, 1540 and died May 17, 1592
"Thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them to little ones." (Today's Gospel)
As a poor uneducated shepherd boy, at the age of seven, St. Pascal could not attend Holy Mass every day so he placed a small statue of Our Lady in the fork of a tree, were he could pray. He listened attentively for the bells from the Franciscan Chapel so that he would know when Mass was about to begin. He could not leave off tending the sheep so he would attend the Mass spiritually with the greatest devotion and yearning toward Jesus in the sacred mystery. Our Lord one day rewarded this intense longing of his for his Eucharistic God in a miraculous manner by vouchsafing him the lovely sight of the Blessed Sacrament borne toward him high aloft in the sky, by the hands of angels. Similar Divine favors were shown him again and again in life.
At this tender age he was already accustomed to hair shirts and mortifications. It is said that angels often came and instructed him. He followed the words of Jesus that He has given us in today's gospel: "Take up My yoke upon you, and learn of Me, because I am meek and humble of heart; and you shall find rest to your souls for my yoke is sweet, and My burden light."
At the age of thirty-four he entered the religious life as a Franciscan lay brother. He was known for his perfect obedience and his love for the Blessed Eucharist. He spent every spare moment in front of our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament.
This is indeed something for us to seriously consider in our own day. "Our heart lives where it loves rather than where it happens to be for the moment." We see in this a most profound truth.
Today we see that we are often separated by great distances and obligations from being present before God in His house. There are plenty of false churches around us including those of the modernist Novus Ordo, but the true House of God (a true Catholic church) is often at a great distance for many of Christ's faithful. As members of the Mystical Body of Christ we are never far from Him in spirit even though we may be far from His Eucharistic Presence.
St. Paschal teaches us what we must do when we find ourselves unable to do that which we need to do. We must attend Mass spiritually and we must make spiritual Communions. In this way our hearts are not stuck wherever our bodies might be, but on the contrary they live where they find Him whom they love in the Blessed Sacrament.
We have often heard that God accepts the desire for the deed. But, we all too often fail to comprehend the powerful significance of this truth.
Likewise there will be those who will receive an eternal reward for the desires of their hearts rather than the actions of their bodies.
Indeed, I would venture that there are many who receive Our Lord in the Holy Eucharist while their hearts are far from God. Such souls receive very little if any merit and perhaps on the contrary are more offensive to God than if they remained away. On the other hand there are those who cannot physically receive but who do so spiritually with great attention, love and devotion and merit tremendous graces from God.
Let us in our prayers beg the intercession of St. Paschal, that he might not only show us the true love we must have for Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament, but also the means to attain it. Let us keep in our mind the idea that "Our heart lives where it loves rather than where it happens to be for the moment." And let us always keep in check what we allow our hearts love and where we allow them to live.

In an interview with the New York Times, posted on the newspaper's Web site today, former Milwaukee Archbishop Rembert Weakland talked about his views on homosexuality and the Catholic Church as well as the scandal that precipitated his retirement in 2002.
The Times quotes Weakland as saying:
"If we say our God is an all-loving god, how do you explain that at any given time probably 400 million living on the planet at one time would be gay? Are the religions of the world, as does Catholicism, saying to those hundreds of millions of people, you have to pass your whole life without any physical, genital expression of that love?"
Last week, Weakland revealed he is homosexual and said he would soon be leaving Milwaukee to live at a monastery in New Jersey.

Mary lived only for God. Studying her life in the Gospels we never see her influenced by selfish motives or by reasons of personal interest; only one thing moves her: the glory of God and the interests of Jesus and of souls.
In her humble, hidden life, in her work, in her poverty, in all the privations and sufferings she had to undergo, she was always ready to advance, totally oblivious of her suffering, wholly given to the fulfilling of the divine will.
It was the Holy Spirit who guided her, who urged her, who sustained her, and her secret was to let herself be

After meeting the grand mufti of Jerusalem, Muhammad Ahmad Hussein, and praying at the Western Wall on Tuesday, Pope Benedict XVI arrived for a historic meeting with the chief rabbis at Heichal Shlomo, next to the capital's Great Synagogue, and agreed that the Catholic Church will cease all missionary activity among Jews.

Bishop Giles Sermon:
Audio Sermon for the fourth Sunday after Easter (Mother's Day).
Audio Sermon for Mother's Day.
By Kathleen Gilbert
STOCKHOLM, May 12, 2009 (LifeSiteNews.com) - Swedish health authorities have ruled that it is not illegal to kill a healthy unborn child based simply on its gender, according to Swedish news service The Local.
Doctors had asked health authorities about the matter after a woman from southern Sweden had two of her children killed in utero for being an undesired sex. The woman had already given birth to two daughters.
The gender was determined during an amniocentesis requested to determine whether the child had a disability.
Concerned doctors at Mälaren Hospital then asked Sweden's National Board of Health and Welfare to determine a protocol for future instances in which they "feel pressured to examine the foetus's gender" without a medical necessity.
The medical board responded that such requests must be accommodated.
According to Swedish law, abortion is legal on any basis whatsoever up to the 18th week of gestation, and therefore the board said doctors cannot deny a mother seeking to have an unborn child killed because it is the wrong gender.
A medical ethics consultant told The Local in March that mothers regularly travel to Sweden from Norway, where sex-selective abortions are illegal, to abort unwanted girls.
To commemorate people who died outside the Church is, first of all, an expression of heresy.
Secondly, notice that Benedict XVI says that the Jews lost their lives, but “they will never lose their names.” This is a subtle (but almost certainly deliberate) statement of universal salvation for Jews. For in the Apocalypse, it is indicated over and over that the elect have their names written in the Book of Life. The names of the reprobate, however, are not thus written.
Apocalypse 13:8- “And all that dwell upon the earth adored him, whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb, which was slain from the beginning of the world.”
Apocalypse 2:17- “He, that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the churches: To him that overcometh, I will give the hidden manna, and will give him a white counter, and in the counter, a new name written, which no man knoweth, but he that receiveth it.
Jesus also tells His disciples that their names are written in Heaven
Luke 10:20- “But yet rejoice not in this, that spirits are subject unto you; but rejoice in this, that your names are written in heaven.”
St. Francis of Assisi (1181-1226AD)
Former Catholic head of Milwaukee admits he's gay
By RACHEL ZOLL – 14 hours ago
By Annysa Johnson of the Journal Sentinel
Retired Archbishop Rembert G. Weakland said Monday that he plans to donate the proceeds from sales of his forthcoming memoir to the Catholic Community Foundation, a local organization that funds programs in southeastern Wisconsin.
The memoir, "A Pilgrim in a Pilgrim Church," is due out in June. In it, the retired archbishop writes openly about his homosexuality and his failure to oversee pedophile priests, according to Publisher's Weekly, which called it "a moving personal confession."
"I was very careful and concerned that the book not become a Jerry Springer, to satisfy people's prurient curiosity or anything of this sort," Weakland told The Associated Press. "At the same time, I tried to be as honest as I can."
Weakland resigned abruptly in 2002 after it was revealed that he had paid $450,000 in archdiocesan funds to a former Marquette University theology student who accused him of date rape in 1979. In 1998, the man, Paul Marcoux, attempted to extort $1 million from Weakland in exchange for a love note the archbishop had written years earlier, according to court records.
A spokesman for the archdiocese said Monday that it is unlikely to seek restitution of the funds paid out by Weakland from the book's profits because they were repaid previously by the retired archbishop and a group of supporters..........
Bet they're proud to be bogus ordo now....

The Israeli government demanded that Pope Benedict XVI explicitly condemn Catholics who deny the Holocaust, as he arrived in Jordan on the first leg of his tour of the Holy Land billed as an act of 'reconciliation'.
By Richard Spencer in Amman
The Pope insists his eight-day trip is a "pilgrimage" to Holy Land sites but it has become embroiled in disputes over controversial comments he has made affecting relations with both religions...
...Nevertheless, the Vatican has been at pains to concede to Israeli pressure over aspects of the visit.
After intense lobbying aides agreed the Pope would not make an address on a specially constructed stage in a Palestinian refugee camp that abuts the Israeli security barrier.
That platform would have provided television cameras with powerful images of him speaking against the wall, which cuts off Palestinian communities, and even of Israeli watchtowers in the background.
The address will be given inside, instead.
The Vatican also revoked an invitation to an audience with the Pope of an Arab-Israeli mayor who had condemned the invasion of Gaza, again after heavy pressure from the Israeli cabinet which called the mayor a "terror supporter"...
...Father Federico Lombardi, the Pope's spokesman, said the Vatican had already made its position on the Holocaust clear.
"I don't understand what we have still to say," he told The Daily Telegraph. "It is clear that the Pope condemns those who deny the Holocaust...
This is really amazing. THINK about it - what valid and legitimate Vicar of Christ would ever give in to the "demands" of these Christ hating and denying sons of satan?
The last valid and legitimate Pope - Pope Pius XII said that the Vatican would never even recognize the illegal "state of Israel" - and this so-called "pope" does virtually whatever Israel orders him to do!
Isn't it also amazing that this "Pope" CONDEMNS anyone who denies the Holocaust - but it is fine by him for people to deny Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ - those who does not condemn - those he calls "elder brothers".
These novus ordo people will have no excuse for their apostasy when they stand before our Lord on the last day.

THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH
Her Doctrine and Morals
Fourth Sunday after Easter
10 May 2009
There is no unmitigated happiness in this life. Our lives are a continual flow of happy and unhappy events. The Apostles rejoice over the presence of Our Lord, and are later saddened by His absence. So it is in all our lives. The everlasting joy that we long for awaits us only in Heaven. Here below we must take the good with the bad. We must strive to make good use of even the bad so that it will become good for us in eternity.
God is good and merciful in arranging our lives here on earth in this manner. If we consider our fallen nature and our tendency to become overly attached to the temporal things of this earth, we see that we are very prone to allow people and things to usurp the place of God in our hearts and minds. (We are prone to readily fall into idolatry.) So God arranges that the things we allow ourselves to become attached to, will be taken away from us. If we receive only good things we tend to forget God, we become filled with our own pride and vanity. We attribute these good things to our own efforts and thus rob God of the honor, glory, praise and thanksgiving that are due to Him.
On the other hand if He were to give us nothing but evil or suffering, our frail nature would easily fall into despair. We would be inclined to think that God has forgotten us or that He does not care about us, or does not love us. Or we will fall so far as to even begin to doubt the existence of God altogether.
In this temporal life we receive both temporal good and temporal evil to keep us in a state of virtue. This balances us so that we do not fall to one side of sin or the other. God knows our strengths and our weaknesses. He measures out just how much we need of temporal good and evil in this life. We often think that we do not deserve this evil or sometimes even a good thing, and in this we are in essence denying God. We are saying that God does not know what He is doing. God knows better than we do what is for our salvation.
If we are forced to suffer more than others it is not that God is being unfair or unjust. On the contrary He is being most fair and most just because we obviously need this cross more than our neighbor. The cross that God has fashioned for us is unique for us. It is only for us; it is the perfect medicine not only to restore spiritual health, but to build and maintain it. Our cross is the correct size and weight. It is good for us, but would not fit our neighbor very well. Likewise, our neighbor's cross would be very ill suited to us. Thus, it is truly childish and foolish to be envious or jealous of what God has given our neighbor.
Only God is good. All the good things in this world are given to us to remind us of the only true Good (God). These things all lack the one property that we long for: eternal goodness. They are all temporal, so they are to be used for a time. They are to be used as a means to an end. They are all defective because they are not eternal. They are corruptible, perishable, and can become dangerous for us if we allow ourselves to serve them. Just as we receive good at times and evil at times we often perceive only good or only evil at different times in our lives.
All that God has made is good, and He has made all things. In this light we see nothing but goodness all around us. There are souls that at times have this positive attitude motivated by the love of God. They are happy and contented with what ever they receive.
Then there is the opposite extreme that sees evil in everything around us. We see that all things are vain: "vanity of vanity, and all in vanity." They are all empty; and deceptive in giving us the illusion of having that peace and happiness that we are in search of. Upon closer examination though we can see that these things are not evil in themselves, but it is our use of or perception of them that make them an evil for us.
For example: human sexuality has been given us by God. He has made us male and female. He has given us the natural desire to unite and reproduce. This is a good thing and not an evil. It is does its best good in the correct use of it as God intended it to be used in the married state and for the procreation of children for the love of God. But, this same good becomes for us a terrible evil when it is abused in either fornication or adultery. And in this state it often leads to or is idolatry. Those who pursue only the pleasurable aspect of this gift, to the exclusion of the responsibilities attached to it, make a god out of His gift-this is idolatry.
All that God has made and all that He does is good. He gives and takes away as He sees fit, and it is always for our eternal benefit. Let us learn to love Him and thank Him both when He gives us pleasure and joy and when He gives us pain and suffering, knowing that this is just what we need for our souls at this time.
