Pope Leo XIII

Pope Leo XIII was born Vincenzo Gioacchino Raffaele Luigi Pecci in Carpineto Romano, near Rome in 1810 and was ordained a catholic priest in 1837. He always lived in the real world, as a young priest he had the courage to confront the power of the local mafia in the city of Benevento; and he had the human sentiment to care for the poor and the ill in Perugia.

O glorious Archangel Saint Michael

O glorious Archangel Saint Michael, Prince of the heavenly host, be our defense in the terrible warfare which we carry on against principalities and powers, against the rulers of this world of darkness, spirits of evil. Come to the aid of man, whom God created immortal, made in His own image and likeness, and redeemed at a great price from the tyranny of the devil. More »

His Vision

One day (October 13), after celebrating Mass, the aged Pope Leo XIII was in conference with the Cardinals when suddenly he sank to the floor in a deep swoon. Physicians who hastened to his side could find no trace of his pulse and feared that he had expired. However, after a short interval the Holy Father regained consciousness and exclaimed with great emotion:\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"Oh, what a horrible picture I have been permitted to see!\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\" More »

Exhortation:

COME LORD JESUS!

In today’s Gospel reading, our Lord Jesus continues on the theme of the End-Times. This what he emphasizes:

47 And that servant who knew his master’s will,
but did not make ready or act according to his will,
shall receive a severe beating.
48 But he who did not know, and did what deserved a beating,
shall receive a light beating.
Every one to whom much is given, of him will much be required;
and of him to whom men commit much they will demand the more.”
(Luke 12 v 47-48)

It is therefore appropriate to remind ourselves of what we have previously warned you about, namely, the fact that Pope John Paul II (1920 – 2005) is NOT a Catholic saint by any stretch of the imagination or the intellect. His canonization was organized first by himself, during his lifetime by ensuring the watering-down of the canonization process, including the emasculation of the Office of the Devil’s Advocate to virtual non-existence.

And then, his canonization was organized by those who had gained so much from his patronage. In short his canonization was organized by his acolytes and cronies. These acolytes and cronies have their own agenda, different from the Good News of Jesus of Nazareth.

Consequently, before anyone jumps on the bandwagon of a sainthood that is non-existent, it is essential that he or she considers seriously what we have previously highlighted.

Here are some excerpts of what we posted on 27th of February 2014:

—————————————————————————————————

On April 27th, 2014 an event is billed to take place at the Vatican

 We refer you all to the comprehensive work by Fr. Luigi Villa (1918-2012) of blessed memory (page 28-33)

And another by Prof. Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira (1908-1995) of blessed memory.

We appeal to you to think and meditate deeply about the materials above as well as those depicted below:

1)      Conversion of the Talmudic Jews; and Jesus as the unique and true Messiah

2)      Buddha at Assisi

3)      Animists at Assisi

4)      The Koran and Islam and St John the Baptist

5)      The Carmelites on Mount Carmel

Also do not fail to keep the quotation below, in mind:

“Everyone should avoid familiarity or friendship with anyone suspected of belonging to masonry or to affiliated groups. Know them by their fruits and avoid them. Every familiarity should be avoided, not only with those impious libertines who openly promote the character of the sect, but also with those who hide under the mask of universal tolerance, respect for all religions, and the craving to reconcile the maxims of the Gospel with those of the revolution. These men seek to reconcile Christ and Belial, the Church of God and the state without God”
Encyclical of Pope Leo XIII promulgated on December 8, 1892. (CUSTODI DI QUELLA FEDE par. 15)

——————————————————————————————-

However, despite the efforts of many, this canonization still went ahead. Our direct appeal to the Italian people fell on deaf ears. 27th April 2014 was a day of lamentations and so will it be till the end of the age.

Therefore, once again we urge all faithful Catholics to ignore the canonization that took place on that day; indeed 22nd of October of every year must be observed as a day of penance in reparation to the Lord Jesus for the unfaithful servants in the Church.

22nd of October must also be observed as a day of prayer for all the victims of child-sex abuse (particularly the victims of Marcial Maciel, who had no help coming from the hierarchy), that the Lord Jesus may look upon these victims with kindness and give them all the graces they need to stay loyal and faithful to our Holy Mother the Church.

Concerning those who always jump to play the “infallibility card” on these canonizations: tell them, only a wicked and adulterous generation will use infallibility as defense for a particular canonization.

To anyone and everyone – who, willfully and deliberately, seek to lead the people of God astray, by proclaiming that John Paul II is a Catholic saint worthy of veneration – we say these words of the Psalmist:

“May they disappear like water draining away;
may they be crushed like weeds on a path.
May they be like snails that dissolve into slime;
may they be like a baby born dead that never sees the light.
Before they know it, they are cut down like weeds;
in his fierce anger God will blow them away
while they are still living.”

It is always our prayer that these people repent of their grave evil and their wicked propaganda – and stop promoting as saints those who are not saints – and then, let them turn back to our Divine Redeemer, Jesus, while there is still time.

Let us recall the words of our Lord Jesus:

And that servant who knew his master’s will,
but did not make ready or act according to his will,
shall receive a severe beating.
But he who did not know, and did what deserved a beating,
shall receive a light beating.

The people who call John Paul II a Catholic saint will be given many lashes.
The people who should know better, and still call John Paul II a Catholic saint will be given the most number of lashes.
The people who ignorantly call John Paul II a Catholic saint will be giving fewer lashes.

The people who add the appellation “great” will be given many lashes.
The people who should know better, but still add the appellation “great” will be given the most number of lashes.
The people who ignorantly add the appellation “great” will be given fewer lashes.

Dear brothers and sisters, this is a difficult time for the Church, but we are sure that the gates of Hell will never overcome her. We must all be vigilant and alert as the enemies of the Salvation of Christ seek always to plant the Weeds in the midst of the Wheat. It is only at the end of Time that the two (the Wheat and the Weed) will be totally and completely separated by the holy Angels of Jesus.

Together with Prophet Isaiah we sing:

God indeed is my Savior;
I am confident and unafraid.
My strength and my courage is the LORD,
and he has been my savior.
With joy [we] will draw water
at the fountain of salvation.

(cf Isaiah 12 v 2)

St. Michael the Archangel,
Glorious Prince of the heavenly host,
you who combated the infernal serpent
and did cast him out of heaven;
and now you valiantly defend the Church of God,
so that the gates of Hell can never prevail against her,
we earnestly beg you to please assist us,
in the painful and dangerous conflict,
which we have to sustain against the same formidable foe.
Be with us O Mighty Prince
that we may courageously fight and wholly vanquish
that proud spirit whom thou has by the divine Power
so gloriously overthrown.
And whom our powerful King, Jesus Christ,
has in our human nature, so completely overcome,
to the end that having triumphed over the enemy of our salvation
we may with you and the holy angels
praise the clemency of God,
who having refused mercy to the rebellious angels after their fall,
has granted repentance and forgiveness to fallen man.
Amen.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us
Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us
St. Michael the Archangel, pray for us

Exhortation:

COME LORD JESUS!

Brethren, concerning the exact time and date of the Second and Final Advent of our Lord Jesus Christ, we do not know. What we are sure of is the exact period of this Second and Final Advent. Because the Lord our God, in his mercy, has left in Sacred Scriptures many hints of this exact period.

For example in today’s Gospel reading the Lord Jesus tells us:

 Blessed are those servants
whom the master finds awake when he comes;
truly, I say to you, he will gird himself
and have them sit at table,
and he will come and wait on them.
38 If he comes in the second watch,
or in the third,
and finds them so,
blessed are those servants!”
(Luke 12 v 37-38)

There are two messages here.

One message concerns each one of us. Meaning at the hour of the death of each one of us, the world as we know it comes to an end. And therefore the Lord Jesus is warning us to be always prepared: “because we know neither the day nor the hour”.

The other message is that the Second and Final Advent of the Lord Jesus will come about like “a thief in the night”; maybe in the 2nd watch of the night, or maybe in the 3rd watch of the night.

It is nonetheless because of the love our heavenly Father has for us, that he has left hints of this momentous period, as a warning to faithful believers, and as a guide to them.

The bulk of this warning can be found in the overall view of the history of the children of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.  In particular the hints about the exact period of the Final Advent can be found in the Book of Daniel, the Gospels (especially Matthew), and the Book of the Revelation.

Brethren we are in this period now. This generation will not pass away before major parts of the prophesies in Matthew chapter 24 are fulfilled.

The main reason for our repeated admonitions to you is because this period will be a time of contradictions, and a time of upheavals. The proportions of these upheavals will be such that men’s faith in God will be greatly shaken. Indeed, if not for the sake of the faithful followers of Jesus, no human being would survive.

“For then there will be great tribulation, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, no, and never will be. 22 And if those days had not been shortened, no human being would be saved; but for the sake of the elect those days will be shortened.”
(Matthew 24 v 21-22)

So we Catholics and all Christians must be prepared, and must prepare for this period that will test the souls of men.

We urge you all to hold-on tightly to your Catholic faith. Ignore those who in the last days are running from pillar to post to change the ancient doctrines of the Church. These people, seeking to change the laws of Christianity, are working for a different master; their end has already being prophesied. Our prayer is that they repent forthwith, and turn back to Jesus of Nazareth.

But for you, stay away from sodomy and all its implications and ramifications; and stay away from the image of the Beast.

Keep these two warnings and it will be well with you on that Day. Also pray and do penance for all Christians for the sake of unity in Christ. And reject every new change to the Eucharistic liturgy to be brought forward, in the near future, by the enemies of the Cross of Christ.

Brethren it is the Lord Jesus who speaks – through his prophets – out of love for sinful men. Do not take any of these warnings and reminders lightly. Pray about them. Keep your faith. Pray the Rosary (daily). Say the Leonine Prayers.

The Lord Jesus comes soon.

We have seen. And we believe.

…….let us pray with the Psalmist:

“The law of the Lord is perfect;
it gives new strength.
The commands of the Lord are trustworthy,
giving wisdom to those who lack it.
The laws of the Lord are right,
and those who obey them are happy.
The commands of the Lord are just
and give understanding to the mind.
The fear of the Lord is good;
it will continue forever.
The judgments of the Lord are just;
they are always fair.
10 They are more desirable than the finest gold;
they are sweeter than the purest honey.
11 They give knowledge to me, your servant;
I am rewarded for obeying them.”
(Psalm 19)

O Lord our God, keep us away from sins of ignorance
O Lord our God, keep us way from sins of presumption
O Lord our God, keep us away from sins of willful disobedience

O Lord, forgive the sins of our youth
O Lord forgive the sins of our middle age
O Lord forgive the sins of our old age

Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us
Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us
St. Michael the Archangel, pray for us

Exhortation:

COME LORD JESUS!

Today in morning Mass we read the parable of the Rich Fool; who, after storing up resources and goods and assets, said to his soul:

Soul, you have enough goods laid up for many years; take your ease, eat, drink, be merry.”
(Luke 12 v 19)

But God said to him:

“‘You fool! This night they demand your very soul; and the things you have prepared, whose will they be?
(Luke 12 v 20b)

In reality, is that not why the Psalmist says:

Teach us how short our life is,
so that we may become wise
.”
(Psalm 90 v 12)

And in the same place he says:

Seventy years is all we have—
eighty years, if we are strong;
yet all they bring us is trouble and sorrow;
life is soon over, and we are gone
.”
(Psalm 90 v 10)

And again:

We are like weeds that sprout in the morning,
that grow and burst into bloom,
then dry up and die in the evening
.”
(Psalm 90 v 5b-6)

In another place the Psalmist says:

Human beings are all like a puff of breath;
great and small alike are worthless.
Put them on the scales, and they weigh nothing;
they are lighter than a mere breath
.”
(Psalm 62 v 9)

Such is the life of every man who lays up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.

Who then is a truly wise man?

He is the one of whom the Psalmist says:

walks not in the counsel of the wicked,
nor stands in the way of sinners,
nor sits in the seat of scoffers;
but his delight is in the law of the Lord,
and he meditates on this law, day and night
.”
(Psalm 1 v 1-2)

Again who is a wise man?

A wise man is the man who searches for God.

And a wise man is the man who knows the answer to the question; “what is man that God cares about him?”

This is the answer the Psalmist gives to explain what really man is, and/or can aspire to be:

“‘You are gods,’ I said;
‘all of you are children of the Most High
.’”
(Psalm 82 v 6)

Such a man on the day a demand is made for his soul, can sing out aloud:

And so my soul (heart) is glad!
and my spirit rejoices!
even my body shall rest in hope.
Because thou, O Lord will not abandon my soul in Hades,
thou, O Lord will not let your faithful servant see decay.
At your right hand pleasures forever more
.
(cf Psalm 16 v 9-11)

…….let us pray:

Almighty God
you did instruct the hearts of the faithful
by the light of the Holy Spirit,
grant that by the same Spirit
we may be truly wise and ever rejoice
in His consolation.
We ask this through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Amen

O Lord our God, do not confront us with sudden death,
O Lord our God, give us time to repent.
O Lord our God, give us the spirit of repentance,
O Lord our God, give us the spirit of penance.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us
Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us
St. Michael the Archangel, pray for us

Exhortation:

COME LORD JESUS!

In today’s Sunday Mass Gospel reading, we are presented with another encounter between our Lord Jesus, and the party of the Pharisees; who were always out to get him to say something, they could seize upon and use against him. In this section, it is the question of taxation.

17 Tell us, then, what you think.
Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar, or not?”
18 But Jesus, aware of their malice, said,
“Why put me to the test, you hypocrites?
19 Show me the money for the tax.”
And they brought him a coin.
20 And Jesus said to them,
Whose image and inscription is this?”
21 They said, “Caesar’s.”
Then he said to them,
“Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s,
and to God the things that are God’s.

22 When they heard it, they marveled;
and they left him and went away.”
(Matthew 22 v 17-22)

Many volumes have been written on this incident; however it is the question of images that we want to address here.

A reflection on the words of the Lord Jesus leaves no doubt concerning all iconoclasts, whether ancient or modern; Christian or non-Christian, who have been dealt a fatal blow by these words:

Whose image and inscription is this?”
21 They said, “Caesar’s.”
Then he said to them,
“Render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s,
and to God the things that are God’s.

In otherwords our Lord Jesus himself saw the image of a mortal man (Caesar) impressed on metallic coins, and had no objection to such. Indeed he sees nothing wrong with faithful and devout Jews making use of these coins; and he did not admonish his Apostles and his Disciples not to make use of these coins.

Now, if a representation of the image of a secular, temporary ruler can be made; why not the representation of the Creator and the Ruler of all peoples and all things (both visible and invisible)? Why not the representation of Jesus himself, the incarnate Word of God made flesh – Lord of lords and King of kings, who dwelt amongst us?

Indeed, Peter, James, and John saw his glory, as the Messiah, on the holy mountain.

Now, more details and firm arguments against the heresy of Iconoclasm can be found here and here.

The only-Begotten Son of the Most High God, has revealed himself to mortal man, by his incarnation, when he was born in human form, of the Blessed Virgin Mary, in Bethlehem of Judah. And therefore, Christians who know him and love him, have the right and the honor to make representations of him, in as many art forms as possible, in accordance with the human imagination and intellect.

God is Love: Jesus is the personification of that Love. All icons and images of Jesus, and his holy Angels and his holy Saints, are the fruits of this same Love. Therefore, we pray:

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful; and enkindle in them the fire of your Love.
.

Petition of the Week:

O God, grant that we may have a strong and tender love for your Son, our Lord and Redeemer,
who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever.
Amen.

Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us
Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us
St. Michael the Archangel, pray for us
.

Psalm of the Week:

Psalm 44- here the Psalmist begins on a bright note; recounting all the wonderful things the Lord God did for the children of Jacob, as he led them from Egypt into the Promised Land.

“With our own ears we have heard it, O God—
our ancestors have told us about it,
about the great things you did in their time,
in the days of long ago:
how you yourself drove out the heathen
and established your people in their land;
how you punished the other nations
and caused your own to prosper.
Your people did not conquer the land with their swords;
they did not win it by their own power;
it was by your power and your strength,
and the light of your countenance
which showed that you loved them”
(Psalm 44 v 1-3)

But then the tone of the Psalmist changes, as he reflects on the sorry state of Chosen people under occupation and exile by foreign powers. The psalmist sinks in despair, into tears, as it seems God has abandoned the people of the Covenant.

“We fall crushed to the ground;
we lie defeated in the dust.
26 Come to our aid!
Because of your constant love save us!”
(Psalm 44 v 25-26)

Like the Psalmist, we also recall the wonderful deeds of the Lord, as he has kept the Church strong and thriving throughout the past 2000 years: ensuring the gates of Hell do not triumph against her.

But in these Last Days we are seized with anxiety, as it seems a sinister shadow threatens to cover the glory of the holy Church of God, and faith in the saving Blood of Christ. A faith sealed by the testimony and the martyrdom St. Peter and St. Paul (and their brother Apostles and brother Prophets).

Still we know the Lord Jesus stays always with his holy Church; and in the end, together with the immaculate heart of Mary, the faithful will triumph, gloriously.

No doubt, divine revelation tells us that with Jesus we can never be defeated.

“Then I saw heaven opened, and behold, a white horse! He who sat upon it is called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he judges and makes war. 12 His eyes are like a flame of fire, and on his head are many diadems; and he has a name inscribed which no one knows but himself. 13 He is clad in a robe dipped in blood, and the name by which he is called is The Word of God.”

“And I saw the beast and the kings of the earth with their armies gathered to make war against him who sits upon the horse and against his army. 20 And the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who in its presence had worked the signs by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped its image. These two were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with brimstone. 21 And the rest were slain by the sword of him who sits upon the horse, the sword that issues from his mouth; and all the birds were gorged with their flesh.”
(cf Revelation 19)

12 “Behold, I [Jesus] am coming soon, bringing my recompense, to repay every one for what he has done. 13 I am the Alpha and the Omega, the first and the last, the beginning and the end.”
(Revelation 22 v 12-13)

The Spirit says come!

The Bride says come!

Let all who believe in the name of Jesus say come!

COME LORD JESUS!
