What can one say? Some complain that these articles are repetitive. Let me repeat myself again (pun intended): the conciliar revolutionaries are repetitive. The problem is this: not everyone realizes this little fact or remembers it if they had realized it at one time.
Indeed, we live in a world where everything seems to be an instant "now," that is, a world where most people are unaware of past events and unconcerned about how present circumstances have been caused by those past events, which means that are not able to see the simple truth that efforts to "resolve" any kind of problem, whether personal, social or ecclesiastical, that is founded on false premises is doomed to a future that is worse than the present "now" in which most people live and permit the devil to agitate them so needlessly.
The Catholic Faith is meant to provide us with peace in the midst of troubles. Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ taught us this as He awoke from a sound sleep while the Apostles were frightened by the stormy waters that they believed would sink the boat on which they were sailing:
And when he entered into the boat, his disciples followed him:  And behold a great tempest arose in the sea, so that the boat was covered with waves, but he was asleep.  And they came to him, and awaked him, saying: Lord, save us, we perish.
Jesus saith to them: Why are you fearful, O ye of little faith? Then
rising up he commanded the winds, and the sea, and there came a great
calm.  But the men wondered, saying: What manner of man is this, for the winds and the sea obey him? (Matthew 8: 23-27.)
What manner of man is this? The God-Man, that's Who. The Co-Eternal and Co-Equal Second Person of the Most Blessed Trinity in the very Flesh, made incarnate in the Virginal and Immaculate Womb of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary by the power of the Third Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, God the Holy Ghost.
It is God's Holy Will for us now to live in the midst of very troubled waters, which have been roiled in no small measure by our own sins and by a general indifference to, if not actual endorsement of, sin by the revolutionaries of Modernity in the world and of Modernism in the conciliar church.
It is indeed God's Holy Will for us to have endure the following rubbish, offered at a press conference following the conclusion of a conciliar "bishops'" conference, from a man who is considered to be the Catholic "Archbishop" of Westminster, Vincent Nichols, O.S.B.:
We would want to emphasise that civil partnerships actually provide a structure in which people of the same sex who want a lifelong relationship [and] a lifelong partnership can find their place and protection and legal provision… As a Church we are very committed to the notion of equality so that people are treated the same across all the activities of life. The Church holds great store by the value of commitment in relationships and undertakings that people give… (Vincent Nichols says he is in favour of gay civil unions
Words fail. They absolutely fail. This man is not worth a truckload filled with sacks upon sacks of plugged nickels. And yet, of course, he remains in perfectly "good standing" in the structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism, whose "ordinary form" of what it dares to call the "Roman Rite" has prettied up a bit to provide more mascara over a face of a false religion that is quite ugly when it is not covered by all manner of cosmetic tricks and devices.
Lifelong relationship? Protection? From what? The loss of the souls engaged in unrepentant perverse acts against nature that cry out to Heaven for vengeance?
Words fail, which is why I do hope that someone sends "Archbishop" Vincent Nicholas, O.S.B., the following summary that I have provided on this site many times before:
1) God's love for us is an act of His divine will, the ultimate expression of which is the salvation of our immortal souls.
2) Our love for others
must be premised on willing for them what God wills for us: their
salvation as members of the Catholic Church.
3) We love no one
authentically if we do or say anything, either by omission or
commission, which reaffirms him in a life of unrepentant sin.
4) Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ hates
sin. He wills the sinner to repent of his sins by cooperating with the
graces He won for them on the wood of the Holy Cross and that flow into
his heart and soul through the loving hands of Our Lady, she who is the
Mediatrix of All Graces.
5) One of the Spiritual Works of Mercy is to
admonish the sinner. We have an obligation to admonish those who are in
lives on unrepentant sin to turn away from their lives of sin and to
strive to pursue the heights of sanctity.
6) God has compassion on all erring sinners,
meaning each one of us. He understands our weakness. He exhorts us, as
He exhorted the woman caught in adultery, to "Go, and commit this sin no
7) It is not an act of "love" for people to persist in unrepentant sins with others.
8) It is not an act of "judgmentalness" or
"intolerance" to exhort people who are living lives of unrepentant sin
to reform their lives lest their souls wind up in Hell for eternity.
9) Mortal Sins cast out Sanctifying Grace from the
soul. Those steeped in unrepentant mortal sin are the captives of the
devil until they make a good and sincere Confession to a true priest.
9) Certain sins cry out to Heaven for vengeance. Sodomy is one of the four sins that cry out to Heaven for vengeance.
10) Those engaged in natural or unnatural acts
against the Sixth and Ninth Commandments do not "love" the individuals
with whom they are sinning. Authentic love cannot exist in a soul
committed to a life against the Commandments of God and the eternal
welfare of one's own soul, no less the souls of others.
11) Those engaged in natural or unnatural acts against the Sixth and Ninth Commandments are not fit to adopt children.
12) Those engaged in natural or unnatural acts
against the Sixth and Ninth Commandments are not fit to adopt children
because their very sinful lives put into jeopardy the eternal of the
souls of the children they seek to adopt. It is not possible for people
who are sinning unrepentantly to teach children to hate sin as God hates
sin. They are immersed in sin. Pope Pius XI put it this way in Casti
Connubii, December 31, 1930:
But Christian parents must also understand that
they are destined not only to propagate and preserve the human race on
earth, indeed not only to educate any kind of worshippers of the true
God, but children who are to become members of the Church of Christ, to
raise up fellow-citizens of the Saints, and members of God's household,
that the worshippers of God and Our Savior may daily increase.
13) Those engaged in
unnatural, perverse acts against the Sixth and Ninth Commandments are
further unfit to adopt children because they have no right in the Divine
Positive Law or the natural law to live together as a "couple." Once
again, Pope Pius XI's Casti Connubii:
Nor must We omit to remark, in fine, that since
the duty entrusted to parents for the good of their children is of such
high dignity and of such great importance, every use of the
faculty given by God for the procreation of new life is the right and
the privilege of the married state alone, by the law of God and of
nature, and must be confined absolutely within the sacred limits of that
14) Those engaged in
unnatural, perverse acts against the Sixth and Ninth Commandment have no
right in the Divine Positive Law or the Natural Law to present a
"model" of parenthood that is from the devil himself. The words that
Saint Paul wrote about perversity in Rome in his own day are quite
apropos of our own:
Wherefore God gave them up to the desires of
their heart, unto uncleanness, to dishonour their own bodies among
themselves. Who changed the truth of God into a lie; and worshipped and
served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever.
For this cause God delivered them up to shameful
affections. For their women have changed the natural use into that use
against which is their nature.
And in like manner, the men also, leaving the
natural use of the women, have burned in their lusts one towards
another, men with men working that which is filthy, and receiving in
themselves the recompense which was due to their error.
And as they liked not to have God in their
knowledge, God delivered them up to a reprobate sense, to do those
things which are not convenient; being filled with all iniquity, malice,
fornication, avarice, wickedness, full of envy, murder, contention,
deceit, malignity, whisperers, detractors, hateful to God, contumelious,
proud, haughty, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,
foolish, dissolute, without affection, without fidelity, without mercy.
Who, having known the justice of God, did not
understand that they who do such things are worthy of death; and not
only they that do them, but they also that consent to them that do
them. (Romans 1: 24-32)
15) Matrimony was elevated to a Sacrament by Our
Lord at the wedding feast in Cana. The Holy Sacrament of Matrimony is
entered into by one man and by one woman to achieve these ends: the
procreation and education of children, the mutual good of the spouses, a
remedy for concupiscence. Pope Pius XI noted this in Casti Connubii:
This conjugal faith, however, which is most aptly
called by St. Augustine the "faith of chastity" blooms more freely,
more beautifully and more nobly, when it is rooted in that more
excellent soil, the love of husband and wife which pervades all the
duties of married life and holds pride of place in Christian marriage.
For matrimonial faith demands that husband and wife be joined in an
especially holy and pure love, not as adulterers love each other, but as
Christ loved the Church. This precept the Apostle laid down when he
said: "Husbands, love your wives as Christ also loved the Church," that
Church which of a truth He embraced with a boundless love not for the
sake of His own advantage, but seeking only the good of His Spouse. The
love, then, of which We are speaking is not that based on the passing
lust of the moment nor does it consist in pleasing words only, but in
the deep attachment of the heart which is expressed in action, since
love is proved by deeds. This outward expression of love in the home
demands not only mutual help but must go further; must have as its
primary purpose that man and wife help each other day by day in forming
and perfecting themselves in the interior life, so that through their
partnership in life they may advance ever more and more in virtue, and
above all that they may grow in true love toward God and their neighbor,
on which indeed "dependeth the whole Law and the Prophets." For all men
of every condition, in whatever honorable walk of life they may be, can
and ought to imitate that most perfect example of holiness placed
before man by God, namely Christ Our Lord, and by God's grace to arrive
at the summit of perfection, as is proved by the example set us of many
This mutual molding of husband and wife, this
determined effort to perfect each other, can in a very real sense, as
the Roman Catechism teaches, be said to be the chief reason and purpose
of matrimony, provided matrimony be looked at not in the restricted
sense as instituted for the proper conception and education of the
child, but more widely as the blending of life as a whole and the mutual
interchange and sharing thereof. (Pope Pius XI, Casti Connubii, December 29, 1930.)
16) It is never permissible to put even one child
into spiritual, if not physical, jeopardy by claiming that so many
others would be helped if the Church did not cooperate with an unjust
law. Our Lord said that it would be better for one to have a millstone
thrown around his neck and thrown into a lake than to lead one of his
little ones astray. He was not joking.
17) The civil state has no authority from God to
sanction illicit relationships, whether between a man or a woman (such
as Andrew Cuomo's relationship with his current girlfriend, which he is
publicly flaunting) or between those of the same gender who are
committing sins that cry out to Heaven for vengeance. What Pope Pius XI
wrote in Casti Connubii about "civil unions" between unmarried men and women applies just as equally to those who are committed the sin of Sodom:
To begin at the very source of these evils, their
basic principle lies in this, that matrimony is repeatedly declared to
be not instituted by the Author of nature nor raised by Christ the Lord
to the dignity of a true sacrament, but invented by man. Some
confidently assert that they have found no evidence of the existence of
matrimony in nature or in her laws, but regard it merely as the means of
producing life and of gratifying in one way or another a vehement
impulse; on the other hand, others recognize that certain beginnings or,
as it were, seeds of true wedlock are found in the nature of man since,
unless men were bound together by some form of permanent tie, the
dignity of husband and wife or the natural end of propagating and
rearing the offspring would not receive satisfactory provision. At
the same time they maintain that in all beyond this germinal idea
matrimony, through various concurrent causes, is invented solely by the
mind of man, established solely by his will.
all these err and how shamelessly they leave the ways of honesty is
already evident from what we have set forth here regarding the origin
and nature of wedlock, its purposes and the good inherent in it. The
evil of this teaching is plainly seen from the consequences which its
advocates deduce from it, namely, that the laws, institutions and
customs by which wedlock is governed, since they take their origin
solely from the will of man, are subject entirely to him, hence can and
must be founded, changed and abrogated according to human caprice and
the shifting circumstances of human affairs; that the generative power which is grounded in nature itself is more sacred and has wider range than matrimony -- hence
it may be exercised both outside as well as within the confines of
wedlock, and though the purpose of matrimony be set aside, as though to
suggest that the license of a base fornicating woman should enjoy the
same rights as the chaste motherhood of a lawfully wedded wife.
Armed with these principles, some men go
so far as to concoct new species of unions, suited, as they say, to the
present temper of men and the times, which various new forms of
matrimony they presume to label "temporary," "experimental," and
"companionate." These offer all the indulgence of matrimony and
its rights without, however, the indissoluble bond, and without
offspring, unless later the parties alter their cohabitation into a
matrimony in the full sense of the law.
Indeed there are some who desire and
insist that these practices be legitimatized by the law or, at least,
excused by their general acceptance among the people. They
do not seem even to suspect that these proposals partake of nothing of
the modern "culture" in which they glory so much, but are simply hateful
abominations which beyond all question reduce our truly cultured
nations to the barbarous standards of savage peoples. (Pope Pius XI, Casti Connubii, December 29, 1930.)
There is no such understanding of these simple truths today even in many quarters of the counterfeit church of conciliarism, where pastors of some parishes and heads of many religious communities are completely supportive of "marriage equality" while maintaining their "good standing" in the conciliar structures. Vincent Nichols is bereft of any such understanding because he has simply lost the Catholic Faith. If one can offend God in matters pertaining to the First and Second Commandments, it is a pretty easy thing to offend Him in the rest. If "Pope" Benedict XVI is not going to act against Vincent Nicholas, and he won't, any hope that he will act against Rogelio Livares Plano of the Diocese of Ciudad del Este, Paraguay, for harboring the corrupt Father Carlos Urrutigoity, no less making him the diocesan vocations director, and his corrupt Society of Saint John is very misplaced (see Mr. James Bendell's study on this scandal, Pray for the Children.)
Pope Saint Pius V explained that the only fitting penalty penalty for clerics who persisted in this sin against nature that has been "mainstreamed" was same as for members of the laity" death. The world has gone mad because of the absence of Sanctifying Grace. Most people alive today would recoil at these words of Pope Saint Pius V:
That horrible crime, on account of which
corrupt and obscene cities were destroyed by fire through divine
condemnation, causes us most bitter sorrow and shocks our mind,
impelling us to repress such a crime with the greatest possible zeal.
Quite opportunely the Fifth Lateran Council [1512-1517] issued this
decree: "Let any member of the clergy caught in that vice against nature
. . . be removed from the clerical order or forced to do penance in a monastery"
(chap. 4, X, V, 31). So that the contagion of such a grave offense may
not advance with greater audacity by taking advantage of impunity, which
is the greatest incitement to sin, and so as to more severely punish
the clerics who are guilty of this nefarious crime and who are not
frightened by the death of their souls, we determine that they should be
handed over to the severity of the secular authority, which enforces
Therefore, wishing to pursue with the greatest rigor that which we have
decreed since the beginning of our pontificate, we establish that any
priest or member of the clergy, either secular or regular, who commits
such an execrable crime, by force of the present law be deprived of
every clerical privilege, of every post, dignity and ecclesiastical
benefit, and having been degraded by an ecclesiastical judge,
let him be immediately delivered to the secular authority to be put to
death, as mandated by law as the fitting punishment for laymen who have
sunk into this abyss. (Pope Saint Pius V, Horrendum illud scelus, August 30, 1568)
Just a slightly different
approach, wouldn't you say? A true pope understood the horror of such a
detestable sin on the part of the clergy and sought to administer
punishment to serve as a medicinal corrective for other priests and to
demonstrate to the laity the horrific nature of such a moral crime. A
false "bishop" seeks to protect his "institution" and the "clerical
club." Quite a different approach.
I am not suggesting the revival of this penalty in a world where it
would not be understood and where the offender would be made a "martyr"
for the cause of perversity, only pointing out the fact that the Catholic Church teaches that clerics and others in ecclesiastical authority who
are guilty of serious moral crimes are deserving of punishment, not
protection, by their bishops. Such is the difference yet again between
Catholicism and conciliarism, a false religion that cannot withstand the currents of perversity because its own liturgical rites and doctrines are perverse and loathsome in the sight of the true God of Divine Revelation, the Most Blessed Trinity.
God cares about matters of moral integrity just as much as He cares about doctrinal integrity, and it is indeed very telling that the conciliarists, who scoff in many instances at the perennial teaching of the Catholic Church and who openly blaspheme and betrayal Our Lord by entering into false places of worship without ever saying a word about the fact that those who "worship" there need to convert to the true Faith, are "easy" on hardened sinners who flaunt their sins in public and who are very "easy" on themselves as they commit gross sacrileges and are manifestly negligent in their duties to perform the Spiritual Works of Mercy that are necessary for one to show forth his charity for others in a concrete way when circumstances call for them to be performed.
That which is false, founded in one condemned proposition after another, will show forth its sterility over the course of time as it tolerates all manner of errors on a practical level that, at least theoretically, are condemned "officially" but without, at least for the most part, any disciplinary actions imposed upon those who hold and promote those errors publicly. It is pretty difficult for the lords of conciliarism to have a consistent policy of discipline with those who defect from articles contained in the Deposit of Faith and who promote grave moral evils when each of them, without exception, defies the ancient anathemas of the Catholic Church concerning the nature of dogmatic truth, false ecumenism and "inter-religious prayer services" and as they support openly such things as separation of Church and State and religious liberty while pretending to "worship" God by means of the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo service.
We have much reparation to make to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary for our sins and for those of the whole world.
With Our Lady as our sure guide and intercessor, may we indeed be ever earnest about making reparation for our own many sins, each of has contributed to the worsening of the state of the Church Militant here on earth and of the world-at-large. Once again, make no mistake about it: our own sins and our ingratitude and our lukewarmness have exacerbated, that is, worsened, the state of the Church Militant on earth. We cannot be content to wallow in spiritual mediocrity. We must accept whatever penances and humiliations that God chooses to send us so that we can give them back to His Most Sacred Heart through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of His Most Blessed Mother as her consecrated slaves, especially by means of praying as many Rosaries as our states-in-life permit.
Our Lady stands by the tomb of her Divine Son, Who has been buried mystically by the conciliarists' contempt for the truths that He has revealed exclusively through His Catholic Church and have been taught infallibly by her without any hint or shadow of change from Pentecost Sunday. We must keep her company at that tomb in our prayers, being ever willing to take on more penances and to renounce our own comfort and convenience and all attachment to human respect in order to help to usher in the day when the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary will make it possible for the enemies of her Divine Son in the modern world and in the grips of Modernism will be vanquished, permitting the restoration of all things in Christ the King as we honor her as our Immaculate Queen.
