Prayer to St. Raphael

Image result for st. raphael

October 24th was the Feast of St. Raphael, Patron of Youth and happy/holy Marriages. This prayer is especially dear to me and I highly recommend it for its power and beauty.  St. Raphael is a powerful intercessor with God, for he is “the angel Raphael, one of the seven, who stand before the Lord” (Tobias 12:15).  He is credited with healing the blind Tobit, as well as delivering Sarah, his son’s wife, from demons  May he deliver the Sacrament of Matrimony from those who stain and soil it with sin and uncleanness, and may he intercede for all Catholics today, that they would have happy and holy marriages, in imitation of Christ’s union with the Church.

O Glorious St. Raphael, Patron and Lover of the Young, I call upon thee and plead with thee for thy help. In all confidence I open my heart to thee, to beg thy guidance and assistance in the important task of planning my future. Obtain for me through thy intercession the light of God’s grace, so that I may decide wisely concerning the person who is to be my partner through life. O Angel of Happy Meetings, lead us by the hand to find each other. May all our movements be guided by thy light and transfigured by thy joy. As thou didst lead the young Tobias to Sara and opened up for him a new life of happiness with her in holy marriage, lead me to such a one whom in thine angelic wisdom thou dost judge best suited to be united with me in marriage.

St. Raphael, loving patron of those seeking a marriage partner, help me in this supreme decision of my life. Find for me as a helpmate in life that person whose character will reflect the traits of Jesus and Mary. May he(she) be upright, loyal, pure, sincere and noble, so that with united efforts and with chaste and unselfish love, we both may strive to perfect ourselves in soul and body, as well as the children it may please God to entrust to our care.

St. Raphael, Angel of chaste courtship, bless our friendship and our love, that sin may have no part in it. May our mutual love bind us so closely that our future home may ever be most like the home of the Holy Family of Nazareth. Offer thy prayers to God for both of us and obtain the blessing of God upon our marriage, as thou wert the herald of blessing for the marriage of Tobias and Sara.

St. Raphael, friend of the young, be thou my friend, for I shall always be thine. I desire to ever invoke thee in my needs. To thy special care I entrust the decision I am to make as to my future wife (husband). Direct me to the person with whom I can best cooperate in doing God’s Holy Will, with whom I can live in peace, love and harmony in this life and attain eternal joy in the next. Amen.

Primacy of the husband over the wife

Image result for 1950s couples

“Domestic society being confirmed, therefore, by this bond of love, there should flourish in it that ‘order of love,’ as St. Augustine calls it. This order includes both the primacy of the husband with regard to the wife and children, the ready subjection of the wife and her willing obedience, which the Apostle commends in these words: ‘Let women be subject to their husbands as to the Lord, because the husband is the head of the wife, and Christ is the head of the Church.’ This subjection, however, does not deny or take away the liberty which fully belongs to the woman both in view of her dignity as a human person, and in view of her most noble office as wife and mother and companion; nor does it bid her obey her husband’s every request if not in harmony with right reason or with the dignity due to wife; nor, in fine, does it imply that the wife should be put on a level with those persons who in law are called minors, to whom it is customary not to allow free exercise of their rights on account of their lack of mature judgment, or of their ignorance of human affairs. But it forbids that exaggerated liberty which cares not for the good of the family; it forbids that in this body which is the family, the heart be separated from the head to the great detriment of the whole body and the proximate danger of rin. For if the man is the head, the woman is the heart, and as he occupies the chief place in ruling, so she may and ought to claim for herself the chief place in love. Again, this subjection of wife to husband in its degree and manner may vary according to the different conditions of persons, place and time. In fact, if the husband neglect his duty, it falls to the wife to take his place in directing the family. But the structure of the family and its fundamental law, established and confirmed by God, must always and everywhere be maintained intact. With great wisdom Our predecessor Leo XIII, of happy memory, in the Encyclical on Christian marriage which We have already mentioned, speaking of this order to be maintained between man and wife, teaches: ‘The man is the ruler of the family, and the head of the woman; but because she is flesh of his flesh and bone of his bone, let her be subject and obedient to the man, not as a servant but as a companion, so that nothing be lacking of honor or of dignity in the obedience which she pays. Let divine charity be the constant guide of their mutual relations, both in him who rules and in her who obeys, since each bears the image, the one of Christ, the other of the Church.'”

~Pius XI, “Casti Connubii”, 1930 A.D.

“Who can accept Marriage?”

http://rorate-caeli.blogspot.com/2016/06/pope-francis-catastrophic-speech-of.html

The Pope blasphemes Catholic Marriage.

“They prefer to cohabitate, and this is a challenge, a task. Not to ask ‘why don’t you marry?’ No, to accompany, to wait, and to help them to mature, help fidelity to mature.”

Accompany them to what?  When the Church was in a healthy state and Popes taught the Catholic Faith, this would have meant to “accompany” them back to the state of Sanctifying grace, without which there is no life in the soul.  How do you “wait” on cohabitators to achieve a supposedly Catholic Marriage without admonishing them and warning them that they are living contrary to the laws of God and are bringing damnation to their souls, telling them that to amend this they must leave their sinful situation? To Pope Francis, cohabitation is the new marriage which ultimately means Marriage is meaningless and basically non-existent.  Is cohabitation to be raised to the permanence and holiness of Marriage? Are the pleasures of sin to be raised to the dignity of a Sacrament and upheld as a means to the end of fidelity and holiness?  Is Marriage too hard to live by now, with its duties, obligations and responsibilities?  What happened to picking up our crosses and following Christ?  Why do we have to pander to the pleasures of the people? The Pope, like those disciples of Christ who walked away from Him after He said that we must eat His Body, is ultimately saying concerning marriage, “this saying is hard. Who can accept it?” (John 6: 60).  Instead of accepting Christ and His teachings, it seems we have to be accepting of the modern culture that is entrenched in sin, all in the name of a false mercy and pastoral charity.

Fidelity does not exist in sin.  Cohabitation is unlawful and a blasphemy to the unity and indissolubility of lawful marriage based on fidelity to Christ and His Church.  If there is no fidelity to God by keeping His Commandments, there can be no fidelity to each other.  A lawful Marriage is a lifelong covenant and vow made before God by a man and woman. Anything else is a mortal sin and to see the Pope approving of mortal sin (of course this isn’t the first time) is a shameful disgrace.

Why don’t we take a refresher course?  The definition and meaning of the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony from The Baltimore Catechism #3:

Q. 1005. What is the Sacrament of Matrimony?

A. The Sacrament of Matrimony is the Sacrament which unites a Christian man and woman in lawful marriage.

Q. 1006. When are persons lawfully married?

A. Persons are lawfully married when they comply with all the laws of God and of the Church relating to marriage. To marry unlawfully is a mortal sin, and it deprives the souls of the grace of the Sacrament.

Q. 1007. When was marriage first instituted?

A. Marriage was first instituted in the Garden of Eden, when God created Adam and Eve and made them husband and wife, but it was not then a Sacrament, for their union did not confer any special grace.

Q. 1008. When was the contract of marriage raised to the dignity of a Sacrament?

A. The exact time at which the contract of marriages was raised to the dignity of a Sacrament is not known, but the fact that it was thus raised is certain from passages in the New Testament and from the constant teaching of the Church ever since the time of the apostles. Our Lord did not merely add grace to the contract, but He made the very contract a Sacrament, so that Christians cannot make this contract without receiving the Sacrament.

Q. 1009. What is the outward sign in the Sacrament of Matrimony, and in what does the whole essence of the marriage contract consist?

A. The outward sign in the Sacrament of matrimony is the mutual consent of the persons, expressed by words or signs in accordance with the laws of the Church. The whole essence of the marriage contract consists in the surrender by the persons of their bodies to each other and in declaring by word or sign that they make this surrender and take each other for husband and wife now and for life.

Q. 1010. What are the chief ends of the Sacrament of Matrimony?

A. The chief ends of the Sacrament of matrimony are:

  1. To enable the husband and wife to aid each other in securing the salvation of their souls;
  2. To propagate or keep up the existence of the human race by bringing children into the world to serve God;
  3. To prevent sins against the holy virtue of purity by faithfully obeying the laws of the marriage state.

Q. 1011. Can a Christian man and woman be united in lawful marriage in any other way than by the Sacrament of Matrimony?

A. A Christian man and woman cannot be united in lawful marriage in any other way than by the Sacrament of Matrimony, because Christ raised marriage to the dignity of a sacrament.

And the true nature of Marriage according to Pope Leo XIII:

“Marriage has God for its Author, and was from the very beginning a kind of foreshadowing of the Incarnation of His Son; and therefore there abides in it a something holy and religious; not extraneous, but innate; not derived from men, but implanted by nature… As, then, marriage is holy by its own power, in its own nature, and of itself, it ought not to be regulated and administered by the will of civil rulers, but by the divine authority of the Church, which alone in sacred matters professes the office of teaching.” ~Pope Leo XIII, “Arcanum”, 1880 A.D.

It’s blasphemy to put the profane on par with the holy.

~Damsel of the Faith


 

The Knight of Tradition is adding to the post by giving us some important information on the subject of situation ethics, or in other words as I like to call it, the fruit of Modernism:

As Rorate Caeli adequately covered in the linked article above, such a line of thinking has been already indicated in a few of this Pope’s documents, especially in the infamous Amoris Laetitia; the relevant parts of which are restated below:

(Part of 33.) “Yet if this freedom lacks noble goals or personal discipline, it degenerates into an inability to give oneself generously to others. Indeed, in many countries where the number of marriages is decreasing, more and more people are choosing to live alone or simply to spend time together without cohabiting.”

293. The Fathers also considered the specific situation of a merely civil marriage or, with due distinction, even simple cohabitation, noting that “when such unions attain a particular stability, legally recognized, are characterized by deep affection and responsibility for their offspring, and demonstrate an ability to overcome trials, they can provide occasions for pastoral care with a view to the eventual celebration of the sacrament of marriage”.

On the other hand, it is a source of concern that many young people today distrust marriage and live together, putting off indefinitely the commitment of marriage, while yet others break a commitment already made and immediately assume a new one. “As members of the Church, they too need pastoral care that is merciful and helpful”. For the Church’s pastors are not only responsible for promoting Christian marriage, but also the “pastoral discernment of the situations of a great many who no longer live this reality. Entering into pastoral dialogue with these persons is needed to distinguish elements in their lives that can lead to a greater openness to the Gospel of marriage in its fullness”. In this pastoral discernment, there is a need “to identify elements that can foster evangelization and human and spiritual growth”.

294. “The choice of a civil marriage or, in many cases, of simple cohabitation, is often not motivated by prejudice or resistance to a sacramental union, but by cultural or contingent situations”. In such cases, respect also can be shown for those signs of love which in some way reflect God’s own love. We know that there is “a continual increase in the number of those who, after having lived together for a long period, request the celebration of marriage in Church. Simply to live together is often a choice based on a general attitude opposed to anything institutional or definitive; it can also be done while awaiting more security in life (a steady job and steady income). In some countries, de facto unions are very numerous, not only because of a rejection of values concerning the family and matrimony, but primarily because celebrating a marriage is considered too expensive in the social circumstances. As a result, material poverty drives people into de facto unions”. Whatever the case, “all these situations require a constructive response seeking to transform them into opportunities that can lead to the full reality of marriage and family in conformity with the Gospel. These couples need to be welcomed and guided patiently and discreetly”.

What is happening here is the promotion of Situation Ethics.  Although Pope Francis might have insisted to some, e.g., the SSPX, that he does not intend to change doctrine, it would seem that the doctrine could be “flexible” in “pastoral” application.

John Vennari on the definition of Situation Ethics:

http://www.cfnews.org/page88/files/88cd932e0fb30da936d547131dbddacf-571.html

“What is situation ethics?

Situation Ethics is the rejection of the universal, binding, immutable norms of morality. There is no such thing as a moral act that is intrinsically evil, there is no rule that admits no exceptions. According to this false approach, the morality of an act ultimately depends not on objective truth, but on the individual’s given situation.

The early advocates of situation ethics (as well as contemporary advocates) rebelled against what they call “legalism,” “rigidity” and certain “fixed rules of morality that can never be violated.” Such an approach, as the 1960s advocates of situation ethics complained, “puts rules over people.”

Dr. Joseph Fletcher (1905-1991), the Anglican clergyman and principal proponent of modern situation ethics (who published the landmark 1966 book Situation Ethics and ended his days as an atheist), insisted that in a given situation, we need not always act according to objective morality, but rather, we “do the loving thing” based on the our given circumstances. The new pastoral approach coming from Francis’ Vatican delivers a new twist to the same error, claiming what is most important is to do the “merciful” thing, in light of the various “concrete circumstances” of the individual.”

Bp. Bernard Fellay on the application of Situation Ethics after the Synod on the Family:  http://www.sspx.org/en/declaration-concerning-synod-family     

“…In keeping with the natural law, man has a right to exercise his sexuality only within lawful marriage, while respecting the limits set by morality. This is why homosexuality contradicts natural and divine law. Unions entered into apart from marriage (cohabitation, adulterous, or even homosexual unions) are a disorder contrary to the requirements of the natural divine law and are therefore a sin; it is impossible to acknowledge therein any moral good whatsoever, even diminished.

Given current errors and civil legislation against the sanctity of marriage and the purity of morals, the natural law allows no exceptions, because God in His infinite wisdom, when He gave His law, foresaw all cases and all circumstances, unlike human legislators. Therefore so-called situation ethics, whereby some propose to adapt the rules of conduct dictated by the natural law to the variable circumstances of different cultures, is inadmissible. The solution to problems of a moral order must not be decided solely by the consciences of the spouses of or their pastors, and the natural law is imposed on conscience as a rule of action.”

As the Catholic liturgy and doctrine were significantly ignored or even rejected to a point by Fathers of the “pastoral” Second Vatican Council, Pope Francis, as a Son of the Council, is taking the next step in putting even basic morality under this “pastoral” treatment.  Let us pray to the Sacred and Immaculate Hearts for the eventual triumph that is promised by Our Blessed Mother at Fatima!

~Steven C, “Knight of Tradition”

The true origin of Marriage

“The true origin of marriage, venerable brothers, is well known to all. Though revilers of the Christian faith refuse to acknowledge the never-interrupted doctrine of the Church on this subject, and have long striven to destroy the testimony of all nations and of all times, they have nevertheless failed not only to quench the powerful light of truth, but even to lessen it. We record what is to all known, and cannot be doubted by any, that God, on the sixth day of creation, having made man from the slime of the earth, and having breathed into his face the breath of life, gave him a companion, whom He miraculously took from the side of Adam when he was locked in sleep. God thus, in His most far-reaching foresight, decreed that this husband and wife should be the natural beginning of the human race, from whom it might be propagated and preserved by an unfailing fruitfulness throughout all futurity of time. And this union of man and woman, that it might answer more fittingly to the infinite wise counsels of God, even from the beginning manifested chiefly two most excellent properties – deeply sealed, as it were, and signed upon it – namely, unity and perpetuity. From the Gospel we see clearly that this doctrine was declared and openly confirmed by the divine authority of Jesus Christ. He bore witness to the Jews and to His Apostles that marriage, from its institution, should exist between two only, that is, between one man and one woman; that of two they are made, so to say, one flesh; and that the marriage bond is by the will of God so closely and strongly made fast that no man may dissolve it or render it asunder.'”   ~Pope Leo XIII, “Arcanum”, 1880 A.D.

Peter To Rot – Martyr for Holy Matrimony

Image of Bl. Peter To Rot

Peter To Rot, the martyr of marriage, a married man, raised to the Altar in giving his life for the Holiness of Catholic Matrimony.  A Blessed for a time such as this; a time of turmoil in the Church, of confusion that could be set aright by a man such as this, Peter To Rot.  He sacrificed his very life for the honour of not only his marriage to his 16 year old young love, Paula La Varpit, but for the dignity of his Catholic Sacrament, the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony.  He was a martyr for his wife, for his faith, for his Church, for his Lord.  And today what do we see, but marriage trampled underfoot, desecrated by the defender of the vow, if there is one that still exists.  A John Baptist of his time, Peter To Rot took a stand for his faith in the face of an occupying army, a fierce and ruthless tyrant hell bent on extinguishing every and any vestment of the Catholic faith within its grasp.  And knowing full well his fate that awaited him, he pushed forward with supernatural and heroic faith, to leave behind his beloved and three little ones he held so dearly in his heart. 

I’m sure To Rot remembered the words of Father Laufer as they echoed in his mind, “To Rot, I am leaving all my work here in your hands. Look after these people well. Help them, so that they don’t forget about God.”  All the missionaries were imprisoned at Vunapope when the Japanese landed in Rabaul,  New Guinea, and Peter was left as the only spiritual leader of the Catholic people.  As the invading Japanese began to lose the war they felt threatened by the worship of the locals led by Peter To Rot, and started to persecute the Christians for gathering in caves for their Sunday worship.  Soon afterward they would pass that dreadful law, in an attempt to gain favor with the people, that a man could take a second wife.  Peter of course would begin to object and reprimand those who would do the polygamous deed.  It would eventually cost him his life. 

 I am here because of those who broke their marriage vows and because of those who do not want the growth of God’s kingdom.  ~ Peter To Rot

The Diabolical hand in Rome


Spiritual adultery of the worst kind, this what we see unfolding in the Synod on the Family.  The devil has seized control of the Vatican and is working full force to corrupt every single Sacrament of the Church.  We see a new church taking shape now, whereas before it was unclear.  It is the church of man.  It is the church of Satan.  A new religion that is completely ‘desacralized’ and emptied of its Divine content.  Void and empty, with darkness lurking all about.  A church where man is worshiped and not God.  This church will ultimately worship a man as God, the anti-Christ himself.   I am come in the name of my Father, and you receive me not: if another shall come in his own name, him you will receive.”      ~ Jesus Christ

The Bride of Christ, the Catholic Church, is now following in the footsteps of Her Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ on Her own Via Dolorosa.  As Christ was beat down at the whipping post, so the Church must suffer many blows, and continue to do so: none of which will be deadly – The crucifixion has not yet arrived.  The tribulation still lies before us, a persecution the likes of which Catholics have never seen.  The time is at hand, arise my fellow martyrs and take heart, receive strength from the Hand of the Lord to forsake all and follow your Master on His Via Dolorosa.  Could you not continue with Me, for one hour?  If you run with the footmen, and they weary you, what will you do in the day of the horsemen?  Look now, the soldiers are upon us…

The Masonic plot against Our Lord and His Church is no longer spying us in the background, it is staring right down our throats.  The wolf can no longer hide himself in sheep’s clothing, he is to close not to smell.  Just how does the “Resistance” fit in to all of this, and the Cardinals in Rome as well?  They are all in on it together.  You know, the ones with the big mouth; the ones who are least suspected as well.  We may not be able to identify each one of them, but if we look for the hidden hand in the background, we can see the overall picture and tell that something is aloof.

There is a dead corpse in the Church, and it stinketh; an adulterous body of death, seated right before us.  Beware.  Its got the Church by the neck, and seeks to suffocate Her to death.  And how does the enemy plan to do this?  By corrupting the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony and causing the Church to eat damnation to Herself!  The Church of God is under an attack the likes of which the world has never seen.  Satan would thrust a dagger forthright into the Heart of Her, in the Sacrament of Her Matrimony.

The Father has chosen the Bonds of Holy Matrimony as an analogy of His relationship with His Church, and now there is nothing more important than protecting the integrity of this analogy.  What we are seeing the Roman Cardinals doing, on the other hand, is influencing the Pope of Rome to frame their mischief with a law.  To marry the Sacred with secular by removing the distinction between Holy Matrimony and civil unions.  If the devil is successful here, he can seek to regularize the adulterous marriage and thereby force the Church Cleric to desecrate the Sacrament of Holy Communion.  This would be a death blow to the Catholic Faith, for without Holy Matrimony, there is no Catholic Religion!

What you are reading right now, is not just another post on the internet.  It is not just another article about the latest news story.  I am issuing a call for repentance and penance on behalf of Our Lady.  Will you respond?  Will you do reparation for these grievous crimes that the Synod is committing?  The times we are living in are most dangerous, most egregious.  The Heart and Soul of the Church is at stake; the Eucharistic Manna.  The Body and Blood of Our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ.

If Satan the devil is successful, it would be a woeful thing to Our Saviour.  Could we survive it?  The just judgment of He who is Righteous?

If you don’t kneel for Something, you will stand for anything…

The time is now, this is our day of visitation.  Little St. Tarcisius uttered his last words, ”I have kept my God safe from them,” as he lay dying in the arms of a Roman soldier, beaten to death for hiding his “Sacred Burden” – Pope St. Damasus’, “boy-martyr of the Eucharist”.

And what do we do with Him?  Today in our modern churches?  The Consecrated Host?  We palm the Eucharist, that’s what we do!  And then, when we’re finally done, we trample the crumbs of Christ under foot!  That’s what we do, and it’s a sacrilege.  Then we ‘tramps’ Him into the urinal, as we relieve ourselves, before making our way to the parking lot and head for home.  Or we grind Him into the carpet with the souls of our shoes, only to be vacuumed up later and thrown out as some such garbage – To the dump with you little Jesus, along with the rest of society’s refuse; the dung and the rats and the murdered unborn babies too.  Away with you!  We’re done with you now, sir, our entertainment is through – away now!…

The princes of the Church are pushing Her to the precipice of ruin; today, the Church is poised to be invaded by a cut throat gang of pirates, an army of zealots hell bent on concurring the entire world.  No, it’s not the IIslamists as you might have thought.  It’s Russia.  Communism is the real threat the Church faces today.  Communist Red China along with Russia could decimate Europe, and the Papal States would be lost.  This is a real possibility if Rome continues down this path of heretical sacrilege that it has embarked upon with the advent of the Synod on the Family.  The judgment of God will most assuredly encompass the Church of Rome should they decide to proceed with this outrage of admitting adulterers to Communion in a state of mortal sin.  This must be stopped.  Only heroic acts of reparation towards the Sacred Eucharist for the many sins of abomination that Our Lord has been subjected to in His Eucharistic Species, will be able to stay the hand of God from the aannihilations that He has reserved for the last day, if Rome were to so desecrate the Sacraments of both Holy Matrimony and Holy Communion in this way.

The adulterous lips must be forbidden the Holy Chalice.  We cannot allow the Freemasons who have wrested away control of the Papacy from the Vicar of Christ, to hand the Holy Grail to the demon on a silver platter…

The scandalous abominations at this Synod continues to worsen.

Next up, we have the heretical notion that doctrine can develop, from the Papal Adviser Archbishop Victor Fernandez.

http://www.johnthavis.com/church-doctrine-on-family-can-develop-papal-advisor-says#.VDWWafk7uiU

“When it’s said that this is a ‘pastoral’ synod, it doesn’t at all mean that one cannot deepen the doctrine,” he said. “We need to develop the doctrine on the family much more. If we came here only to repeat what we’ve always said, the church wouldn’t grow.”

Pope St. Pius X condemned this:

“Progress of dogmas is, in reality, corruption of dogmas.  I absolutely reject the heretical doctrine of the evolution of dogma, as passing from one meaning to another, and different from the sense in which the Church originally held it.”

Pope Pius XI warned us about what is going on right now:

“Those wretches tainted with the errors of indifferentism and Modernism hold that dogmatic truth is not absolute, but relative: that is, that is must adapt itself to the varying necessities of the times and the varying dispositions of souls, since it is not contained in an unchangeable revelation, but is, by its very nature, meant to accommodate itself to the life of man.

The Romans should be keeping doctrine intact and inviolate:

“The Church, because of her divine institution, must take the greatest care to keep intact and inviolate the deposit of the divine faith, keep unceasing watch over all her efforts for the salvation of souls and pay great attention to driving away and eliminating everything which can be opposed to the faith and can put in danger, in one way or another, the salvation of souls.”                                                                                                          ~Pope Pius IX – Encyclical Gravissimas Inter

Here we see an Africa Cardinal, asking on what basis will a polygamist be refused Holy Communion if adulterers are to be permitted to receive:

http://rorate-caeli.blogspot.com/2014/10/south-african-cardinal-if-communion-for.html

Who will be refused Holy Communion?  If adulterers can receive Holy Communion in the state of mortal sin, then anybody can receive Our Lord in the state of mortal sin, without any repentance or confession at all.  This is what Rome desires.  The Holy Eucharist is to be treated as nothing more than bread or a happy meal prize, and not the Almighty God of the Universe.  Sacrilege will increase exponentially.  God will be outraged and mocked as never before and the Romans say that this is great, this will help people to feel good about themselves.  I don’t think anyone will be feeling good about themselves at their judgment day, when they will have to give a strict account for every deed done in their body; for mocking, scourging and crucifying the Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ.  There is a judgment.  Apparently, everyone has forgotten about that.  Tremble Rome!  You know not what you do.  You drive the sword into Our Lord’s and Our Lady’s Hearts, and you do it with glee, thinking you have a right to treat Our Lord any way you please, and that He will accept your abominations.  He will not. God will not be mocked…

Cardinals are now pitted against Cardinals.  The Cardinals of God and the Cardinals of the devil.  Who is left to speak up for the truth?  Who among them is courageous enough to stand up and call heresy what it is – heresy?  Who is there left to defend the rights of God?

http://www.johnthavis.com/cardinal-marx-says-german-bishops-back-kasper-proposals-on-divorced-and-remarried-catholics#.VDWeq_k7uiX

And you Germans?  You follow your master Luther and his master, Satan.  You wish to start another revolution and this time it is to finish off the Protestant Revolution by destroying what is left of Catholicism.  You advocate desecrating the Blessed Sacrament.  You thrust the sword into the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  People are searching for the Faith and they find you smashing it to pieces.  Luther is incarnate in all that you do.  God will not be mocked by you.  You must repent for mocking Our Lord and His Church.  How much longer will you continue to destroy the Faith in your country?  How much longer will you show your hatred for the Blessed Sacrament?  You demonstrate that there really is a diabolical hand located at Rome.

Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre was right.

“We now know with whom we have to deal.  We know perfectly well that we are dealing with a diabolical hand which is located at Rome, and which is demanding, by obedience, the destruction of the Church!  And this is why we have the right and the duty to refuse this obedience.  I believe that I have the right to ask these gentlemen who present themselves in offices which were occupied by Cardinals, it seems to me that I would have the right to ask them, “Are you with the Catholic Church?”  “Are you the Catholic Church?” “With whom am I dealing?” If I am dealing with someone who has a pact with Masonry, have I the right to speak with such a person?  Have I the duty to listen to them and to obey them?”                                                                           ~Archbishop Lefebvre – 1978 Ordination Sermon

Masonry has overtaken the Church:

This is just one small piece of evidence that shows the infiltration of Freemasonry into the Church over the past 50 years.

http://cal-catholic.com/?p=15747

Our Lady of Good Success warned us about this:

“Satan will reign almost completely by means of the Masonic sects.”

She warned us of this Synod:

“Masonry, which will then be in power, will enact iniquitous laws with the objective of doing away with this Sacrament (Matrimony), making it easy for everyone to live in sin. … The Christian spirit will rapidly decay, extinguishing the precious light of Faith until it reaches the point that there will be an almost total and general corruption of customs.”

The flicker of light that remains is the Society of St. Pius X.  This is the reason why she said there would be an almost total corruption of customs.  Almost is not complete.

Masonry is showing their true colors at this Synod, through these Cardinals attempting to change the law of God.

The Mother of God warned us.  Are we finally going to wake up and listen? Or stick our heads in the sand?
