CANONIZATIONS.

 1. Declaring a person is in heaven.
     To believe that a person is in heaven is an act of Faith. Faith is an act of believing what cannot seen. There is no empirical proof to show that a soul is in heaven. So clearly to believe that a soul is in heaven is a pure act of Faith. Thus it must follow the rules of Faith; meaning to say, that the basis of belief must be the fact that the person has obeyed the commands of Christ necessary to go to heaven. Thus a canonisation is a declaration that a soul is in heaven, can be a model for all Catholics and can intercede for men before the throne of God. 
     Since the process is lengthy, let us consider a down to earth procedure based on the essence of canonisation. Anybody can use this that he may be aided in making an act of Faith.
     Canonisation is not a popularity contest wherein human judges can decide who is in heaven. It is not a political process used to gain votes. It is not a gimmick used to be popular. It is an act of 
Faith.  Making such an act increases our Faith and increases our chances of going to heaven ourselves. 

2. FIRST. Going to heaven according to Christ and the Fathers.
    Only One knows the way to heaven because He came from there through the incarnation and returned back there with His Ascension. And He proved it. 
     He came down to earth precisely to teach us how to go to heaven. And His teachings are found in Divine Revelation and interpreted by the Fathers of the Church. 
     These teachings are taught to the faithful in the Liturgy of the Mass spread over three years, divided in three Cycles, A, B and C. These teachings found in Divine Revelation show the general way to heaven but the specifics can only be found in the Fathers of the Church.  The Catholic Church had always taught that the sources of knowledge on how to go to heaven are Scriptures and the Fathers of the Church. 
     The teachings on how to go to heaven is clearly found in detail in Scriptures and the Fathers of the Church. For Catholics, there is no other source of knowledge on how to go to heaven. All Catholics should know this because they cannot go to heaven unless they, themselves,  follow this path. The people in the Vatican should know this, also, because they are supposed to guide the Catholics to heaven. 
     If the Vatican is ignorant of Divine Revelations and if the Catholics do not know this way to heaven taught in the Liturgy, then we have a very big problem. This is the first thing all Catholics should know in the process of canonisation.
     
3. The way to heaven in simplified and in summary form.
    The way to heaven that is explained by Divine Revelation and interpreted by the Fathers can be summarised this way; perfect life of repentance, perfect act of Faith, Hope and the beginnings of Charity. Anyone who does these will surely be in heaven and can be canonised or declared a saint by the Church. 

4. SECONDLY.  Anybody who follow the way to heaven described above will surely be in heaven after he dies. Thus he can be declared a saint. Now the question is this; knowing the way to heaven as taught by Christ in Divine Revelation, did this candidate fulfill all the requirements Christ had taught? This can be an arduous task. It is here where a thorough study is done in the life of the candidate. It must be very clear that he had obeyed all the commands of Christ required to go to heaven as found in Divine Revelation and explained by the Fathers. To do this many witnesses are summoned to give testimonies because many requirements must be fulfilled to see that the candidate's life conformed completely to the requirements given by Christ to go to heaven. Not only must the candidate possess the above four virtues. He must show that he practiced them in a heroic degree. 

5. Act of Faith based on personal knowledge.
    As an individual, can I know that a candidate is surely a saint in heaven?  Yes. If I know both; first, the way to go to heaven as taught by Christ and secondly, if I thoroughly know the life of the candidate. Thirdly, I should see that the two coincide.  The candidate is surely in heaven  and is a saint. The early Christians did it this way. 
  My Act of Faith will be based on that fact that the life of the candidate conforms to the teaching of Christ on how to go to heaven. So the basis of my Faith is the fact that Christ said, if you do this you will be in heaven. 
     My faith is not based on my personal research or study. It is based on the result of my study that taught me that Christ said that if you obey His commandments you will go to heaven;  and I believed what He said. This is an act of Faith in Christ.

6. An example in the case of Pope Paul VI.
    This is a difficult case because there are so many complains about him that he is described as the patron saint of apostates. 
     I know the way to heaven from the Sacred Liturgy and from Ascetical theology.  I, also, have a few books on the life of Pope Paul VI. And I see that his life conforms to what I learned from the Liturgy and from Ascetical theology. So basing it from my own personal knowledge I believe that Pope Paul VI is a saint in heaven. 
     Because my belief is based on my own personal knowledge, my believing that he is a saint in heaven is not an Act of Faith. It is pure human knowledge. But if I say that my belief is based on the fact that I see that his life conforms with the teachings of Christ, then my belief that Pope Paul VI is a saint in heaven, is an Act of Faith. I can safely pray to him to intercede for me to God. 

7. Act of Faith based on Vatican pronouncements. 
    Not everybody can do what I did above. Few know the way to heaven as found in Divine Revelation, the Fathers and Ascetical theology.  Many bishops and priest do not know these. They have not learned this, either, from the Liturgy of the Mass or from the Fathers of the Church since this is not taught in the seminary nor in theological schools, like Bologna. But the Church should know this and use this as the criterion in judging whether a candidate deserves to be canonised. 
     Unfortunately, the Vatican Office shows it does not know the way to heaven, since they intentionally did not use this criterion in the process of canonisation. Neither had Pope Francis  explained to the Church the way to heaven since his installation up to the present. Neither was this used to judge the worthiness of the candidates for canonisation. 
     They changed the rules for judgment the worthiness of candidates. It is no longer based on the way to heaven taught by Christ and explained by the Fathers.  
     And the Vatican had not studied the lives of the candidates thoroughly. So there are no documents comparing the life of the candidates to the way to heaven described by Christ. This comparative study is essential to the canonisation process. This comparative study is so exhaustive in the case of former saints, like Joan of Arc and  Therese of Lisieux. None was done in all the candidates canonised by Pope Francis. So nobody can be certain in making the necessary Act of Faith in believing that those saints are in heaven. Pope Francis' declaration is just like news item saying that Mickey Mouse is in Disneyland. You don't need an Act of faith to believe that. To believe that a person is a saint in heaven needs an Act of Faith. But it is impossible to believe Pope Francis because the elements of Faith are lacking in the present Vatican process of canonisation. 
     So the canonisation celebration at the Vatican was not canonising anybody. It was just a political victory celebration for some candidates. 
     
8. Model for all Catholics who want to go to heaven. 
    The old process mentioned above is the model for all Catholics who want to go to heaven. All they had to do was follow the way to heaven Christ taught in Divine Revelation and explained by the Fathers; and which is laid down in proper order in the Liturgy of the Mass. And the lives of the saints, like St. Therese, is presented as an example of how an ordinary young girl practiced what Christ taught. Thus she was worthy to be canonised as an example for all Catholics. 
     But those canonised by Pope Francis were not proven to have followed the way Christ taught. So why should we believe that they are in heaven? Some of them have even gone against the very teachings of Christ. Shouldn't they be somewhere else?
     Of course, we should all celebrate when a soul is canonised. This is a declaration that they are where all of us would want to go. But are they really there?  The answer is  of paramount importance and we cannot leave the answer to unreliable sources. We must go back to the dependable sources, Divine Revelation and the Fathers of the Church. Which sadly, the Vatican bureaucracy is not following.

ST. MICHAEL and the devils.

 1. Angels and devils
     Angels are not so well known except what is known about them from pictures. To know them well, man needs the infused supernatural gift of Faith, that is given to few. So few really know them for what they really are. 
     Devils are better known because no supernatural infused gift is needed to know them. All men know them and most primitive tribes even worship them.

2. Angels aid men in the salvation of their souls. Since the act of saving souls is a supernatural activity, only the men of Faith can understand the functioning of angels. 
     Devils work for the damnation of souls. This is within the scope of the natural so man can know how the devil does this. 
     We will not talk of Angels since this is a topic for those advance in spirituality, those with perfect Faith. For this reason St. Michael is not well known. And most priests had even abolished the prayer to him at the end of the Mass. They find him a waste of time that will only prolong the Mass. 
      But most men do not know the devil who is just like them. The ignorance is inexcusable. Because modern man is in constant touch with devils. 

 3. Two kinds of possessions by the devil. 
     First, is physical possession, as in the movies. The presence of the devil can be easily detected externally, like in levitation, guttural speaking voice, etc. This is the ordinary subject of exorcism by exorcists.  Today this is still common.
     The second is what is prevalent today; the spiritual possession of the devil as what happened to Judas. The devil possess the mind and heart of a person. This possession has hardly any extraordinary scary visible signs, though there are visible signs. These visible signs is what St. Paul described as 'coming out of the man,' i.e. from the intellect and free will of the man. They are more subtle that  none of the apostles noticed that Judas was possessed. Everything seems normal in the possessed. They even exhibit extraordinary skills, like skills in business, the sciences, in the arts, and money matters. They are noticeable in the words and actions of the possessed and in the entertaining skills of Oriental magicians. The signs are entertaining to remove all suspicions that they are from the devil. 
      
4.    The second is possession of the soul like Judas. 
       The spiritual possession of Judas is such that none of the apostles noticed it; as today even exorcist would not notice signs of this possession. And like the apostles, exorcist would not be able to exorcise this kind. Even if Christ could really do it, but because the possessed had freely agreed to his being possessed by the devil, Chris would not exorcise such a person.
        In this second type of possession, Judas allowed himself to be open to the possession and the devil just entered into him without his permission, St. Thomas writes. How did he open himself, by being covetous, the defect of all men today especially the very rich. The rich that loves to increase their riches even at causing wars among nation, in being the proponents of abortion, the brains behind regime change and assassinations of Presidents are such because in their covetousness, they have opened themselves to the devil, thus the devil had possessed them spiritually. They become open to all things diabolical, even the killing of a God. 
         If in their covetousness they can kill a God, imaging what other evil things they can do. The scene portrayed by the US in going against their own President and against the appointment of Kavanaugh is typical diabolical spiritual possession. Even untrained journalists call it so. Using the word diabolical but not using the word 'spiritual possession.'

5. The monastic life, as envisaged by Christ, is the first step towards salvation. And it contain within itself provisions in preparation for doing battle against the devil by avoiding both possessions but more in avoiding and overcoming the spiritual possession of the devil. Exorcists can easily drive away the devil from those merely physically possessed. But, as we saw, not even the apostles can exorcise Judas. And Christ would not violate Judas' free will. 
     Today, monks are totally incompetent in doing so and are,      themselves, possessed as news coming out from St. John's Abbey in the US.
     The apostles did not even suspect that Judas was possessed. If they knew, they would not have been able to exorcise him. Christ knew Judas was possessed but He did not drive the devil out of him as He used to do because it would need the cooperation of the free will of Judas to do so. Today, no exorcist could have exorcised Judas since no apostle could have done it that time. 
     Was it impossible to exorcise Judas? No. He could have been exorcised but it could have taken a very long monastic process for him to be exorcised and he had to do it himself with the help of the grace of God. So, eventually, a spiritually possessed person can only free himself from the devil by a very serious monastic way of life like the monasticism of St. John Climacus. That is a lot of work and will take a lot of time......which Judas did not have. So he died possessed by Satan. 
      That is the situation in the world today. Most men are spiritually possessed by Satan, nobody is noticing it and there is no exorcist can free them from it. Only the monasticism of St. John Climacus can free them from it. And nobody knows how that kind of monasticism looks like. In fact, it seems that this way of monastic life is non-existent today. But a description of this way of life is written in books. I got a copy from the Jesuit library. The library card shows nobody read it. Not even the Jesuits. 
       So we are living in a age where nobody can analyse or help us if we are spiritually possessed by Satan. The prayer during Compline reminds us the devil can be driven away if we are strengthen in Faith. There, we have it. This Faith can be strengthen through a very serious monastic way of life. Archbishop Ganswain and Pope  Benedict seems to agree with it. That is why Vatican II had been watering down the monastic life; to help the devil continue possessing souls.

6. Can spiritual possession be detected?
    'But the things that comes out of the mouth come from the heart and these things defile a man. For out of the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual immorality, theft, false testimony and slander....' These are the signs of spiritual possession by the devil. These are all in the headlines in todays news and in all the secret dealings in board rooms. Just to show that almost all men are spiritually possessed...except those who have perfect Faith and the beginnings of Charity.
     The following sins are the trademark of spiritual possession. There is no way anyone can solve these problems and sins except through what was mentioned above, the medication of the monastic life according to St. John Climacus. 
     The sins below are aroused by the devil to which the person guilty of the sin had completely agreed to. So not even Christ will stop it because He had decreed to respect the free will of man. 
     The sin of murder except in self defence and in a just war is from the devil. The act and the desire to commit murder from abortionist, terrorists, and as an accompanying sin to those written below, like murder that accompanies stealing. Wars, threats of wars, 9-11, revolutions, demonstrations for regime change. The move to assassinate Putin or Trump and other good leaders like Salvini, Orban, and prominent good politicians in Brazil, Austria, Hungary, Poland, Czechoslovakia, etc.....precisely because they work for the common good, have become targets for assassination by the devil. Murder that accompanies other sins, like drug addiction, are from the devil. That is why drug addiction is incurable except through that way of life already mentioned above. 
     But nothing will happen without God's permission. These well -intentioned leaders should recourse for Divine Protection from the true God and true religion. 
     Because adultery destroys many souls like the entire family, it can only come from the devil. Adultery, based on impurity, is the devils most potent weapon for the destruction of souls specially for the young. That is why Pope Francis had used the Youth Meets as vehicle to promote impurity as shown in the latest Bishop's Synod.
Some bishops heading the Synod are known perverts suggesting there are other forms of marriage than between man and woman. 
    True Popes cannot be possessed, but anti-popes are possessed by that very fact. "Amoris Laetitia" promotes adultery, sexual immorality and evil thoughts. 
     Just as murder is often connected with drug addiction, it is often connected, also, with theft. Thus the complex of sins have a diabolical source. 
     The devil is the father of liars. So false testimony and slander are diabolical acts. The scene of the confirmation of Kavanaugh is as if he was surrounded by devils wanting to devour him. 
     The whole scene, if all the sins are put together is a refusal to accept God and, therefore, an act of blasphemy. This is blasphemy of the heart. It is worse than murder; but murder added to blasphemy is hell. 

7. All these sins are visibly detectable. But those without Faith will not be able to detect them as sin. They may even consider them as achievements to be praised. And so the confusion today is total. And there will be no one to correct them because those whose goal it is to correct are possessed themselves. 
     Pope Paul VI, recently canonised, declared Satan has entered the Church. Certainly, not the buildings nor the physical body of the Church but the souls of the institutional church, the cockles. Like Judas, because he had no Faith, Satan entered into him. Today the world is without Faith, without the Catholic Faith, Satan has entered the soul of most. Apparently from the sins mentioned above, signs of spiritual possession is in Pope Francis, a few cardinal, most of the bishops, and most of mankind. 
     Only a small portion of mankind, who now lived the monasticism of St. Basil patterned after his Basiliades are free from this possession. And if some of them are possessed, the devil will soon be driven away. 

8. St. Michael is assigned to throw Satan back to hell.
    But St. Michael will only aid those who are marked by God. Not anyone who calls on him. He will take orders only from God. And God will  only point on the righteous. Those who have, at least, begun what Pope John Paul II wrote in his encyclical 'Veritatis Splendor;' those 'went home, sold all their possessions, left father, mother, brothers, sisters, lands for My sake, and who took up their crosses and followed Christ.' It must be complete and all the way. 
     These are the men and women who became free from being possessed by the devil. And, thereby, followed Christ. 
     Christ said; 'and they were few.' 

9. Conclusion.
     We are living in an age where most men are spiritually possessed by the devil. This includes Pope Francis, most of the bishops and priests and, sadly, many laymen. This is an eschatological fulfilment of Good Friday. John Newman describes it as God' s last test for mankind to see on whose side he is; God's side or the devil's. The signs are all present.
     No exorcist can drive this devil away. Not even Pope Francis because he is a suspect. 'This kind can only be driven away through prayer and fasting,' said Jesus Christ. The person possessed should pray and fast. Where? In a monastery following the spirit of St. John Climacus. Which St. John Chrysostom wrote can be lived in one's own room.

Monday, 27th Weekday in Ordinary Time - THE GOOD SAMARITAN

 1. Ending instructions on the Catholic Faith.
     In today's Gospel  we are beginning to receive the last instruction on the Catholic Faith as presented in the Liturgy of the Mass  seven Sundays  to go, with All Saints day in the middle. During these last Sundays, a summary of what we must do to attain eternal life is presented to us in several different views so we can imagine its entirety, the way we appreciate a diamond by viewing it from different angles. It is the same diamond but from different views. It is the same summary on how to attain everlasting life but from different views.
     Let us see two Gospels presenting two different views; from the Tuesday and Wednesday Gospels of the 27th weekday in Ordinary Time. The former describes the Parable of the Good Samaritan; the latter describes Martha and Mary. 

2. The General Summary.
    Based on Scriptures, there are three steps we must take to attain eternal life. First, to live a life of repentance. Secondly, to attain  the theological virtue of Faith. Thirdly, to show the beginnings of the theological virtue of Charity. The first is Old Testament spirituality. The second and third are New Testament spirituality.That is why the first is not enumerated in the New  Testament; only the second and third are described in the Tuesday and Wednesday Gospels of the 27th Weekday in Ordinary time. Both the second and third steps are described in the Parable of the Good Samaritan and the story on Martha and  Mary.
     The first step, which is described in the Old Testament is, now, included in the second step in the New Testament. Let us look at this.

3. The Good Samaritan.
     Wednesday in 27th Weekday is on prayer that must accompany the second step, curing of the sins of the wounded man in the Gospel on the Good Samaritan. 
     The Gospel narrates that there was a man journeying from Jerusalem to Jericho. He fell among thieves, which stripped him of his raiment and wounded him and departed leaving him half dead.
     This signifies mankind coming from Paradise and falling into sin; also a journey from the Church and down to a life of sin, says St. Thomas. 
     When he leaves the Church, he is ambushed by thieves who beat him up. This occurs when man leaving Paradise is waylaid by the devil, beaten up and deprived of grace. He is left half dead, i.e. physically alive but spiritually dead. St. Thomas wrote that this is what happens to everyman who is outside the Church and as a result falls into sin.
     This is what happened to the US bishop. Note how Pope 
Francis and the US bishops reacted to him.
      The Gospel continues. There came down a certain priest and , likewise, a Levite. They saw the spiritually wounded man, looked on him  and passed by on the other side without helping him. 
      The US bishop was beaten down spiritually filled with spiritual wounds. Pope Francis and most of the US bishops passed by him, look at him and pass by him doing nothing to help him. Worse , they aggravated his spiritual wounds by giving him more occasions for sin by giving him privileges and promotions. These are men of the Gospel. 
      Who is neighbour to this wounded man. Not Pope Francis nor the US Bishops. They don't love their neighbour. 

4. Who is neighbour to the wounded man?
     The Gospel continues. A certain Samaritan, as he journeyed, came where the wounded man was. And when he saw him, he had compassion on him. And went to him and bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine, and set him on his own beast, and brought him to an inn, and took care of him. St. Thomas' interpretation of the above.
     The Samaritan is any good soul. He is, also, journeying, i.e. walking in this life. He saw the spiritually wounded man. And when he saw him he went to him and bound his sins with the discipline of God's commandments. Pouring the oil of prayer and good works. And wine, the more painful commands of the New Testament. 
     Then he set him on the way of life Christ taught us and brought him inside the Catholic Church and there took care in healing his wounded soul. Pope Francis and the US bishops did nothing of the above to the poor US bishop. Pope Benedict did this to the Bishop. And when Pope Francis saw the US bishop safe and sound in the Inn, they dragged him out and returned him to the wayside where he laid, again, with open wounds. 

     The Gospel continues. And in the morrow when he departed, he took out two pence, and gave them to the host and said unto him, Take care of him; and whatsoever thou spends more, when I come again, I will repay thee. 
     The Good Samaritan, who we must imitate, took care of the spiritual wounds of the man in the Inn, i.e. the Catholic Church. That is, the Good Samaritan bought the sinner inside the Catholic Church and personally taught him how to be a better Catholic. Then when he has to leave, he left the two commandments of Charity, love of God and love of neighbour, the two pence, so the Church can continue healing the wounded man. 
     When Christ comes in His second coming, He promised to repay the Good Samaritan for whatever extra efforts he used to make the wounded man a better Catholic. 
     Looks like Pope Francis and most of the members of the US bishops conference did nothing of the above to the poor bishop. None of them love their neighbour. None of them had Charity. Truly, we are in the days described in Scriptures wherewith there would be priests and bishops abounding in sin, decaying Faith and waxing cold of Charity. It is very bad times. Nothing can be worse. 
     These two steps will be explained again in the Gospel of Martha and Mary.

27th SUNDAY IN ORDINARY TIME - He is guilty of ADULTERY.

 1. The question of the Pharisees.
     The 'Amores laetitia' of Pope Francis is against the teachings of Moses in the the Old Testament and against the teachings of Christ in the New Testament. The Gospel for today proves it. So what does that make out of Pope Francis? He is not even Jewish; he is not even a Catholic. He is a pagan. 
     The Jewish people practice adultery as much as today's people. It is part of the fallen nature of man. His passions are out of control. He has no love for husband, wife, children or any other human being for that matter. Thus adultery is natural to him. It was so common among the Jews that they were interested what Jesus Christ had to say about it. 'Is it permitted for a husband to divorce his wife?' Christ said neither 'yes' nor 'no.' Instead He asked. 'What did Moses say?' 
     Of course, Moses said NO. And when asked again by His own apostles privately, Christ repeated Moses' answer making it the command, also, of the New Testament. 'Whatever God put together, let no man put asunder.' So twice Christ said that adultery is not permissible; a husband is not permitted to divorce his wife. 
     And Christ added; 'and any one who divorces his wife or husband and remarries is guilty of adultery. Clearly Pope Francis in his 'Amores laetitia' is encouraging adultery.  St. Paul declares that adultery is one of the mortal sins that leads to hell. So is Pope Francis sending us all to hell? No. Only those who follow his teachings. 

2. The answer of Jesus Christ.
     Pope Francis violated both the Old and New Testament in his 'Amores laetitia,' because he tolerates divorce, remarrying with Vatican annulment and receiving Holy Communion in the state of mortal sin. He probably got a wrong idea from  Moses allowing divorce and the writing of a document of divorce. He got his exegesis all wrong.
     Moses never allowed divorce. If he seemingly allowed it, he said, it is 'because of your stubbornness or hardheartedness.' Moses was giving up on the Jews; sort of saying, 'if you want to go to hell, go ahead.'

3. What was the stand of Moses.
     Moses seemed to have contradicted himself. Evidently Moses did not permit divorce. But Christ, Himself, said that Moses allowed divorce and the making of a document of divorce.
     The Fathers of the Church explained this seemingly contradicting stand of Moses. They said that at that time when a husband and wife is applying for divorce,  their hate for one another have gotten out of control. The wife was in danger of being killed by the husband out of hatred. To protest the wife, Moses allowed them to separate to save the intended victim.
     During the process, a secretary was assigned to write a document of divorce. Considering the great effort and time writing the document, the secretaries were instructed to take their sweet time writing the document. While doing so, they try to talk the husband and wife to forego the divorce.  This delaying tactic often worked.
     The reasoning behind the attempt at reconciliation is this; if they loved one another once upon a time, they can probably relearn how to love one another again when their heads are cooler .....because of the too slow process of making the document of divorce. 
     So Moses was really against divorce. And while he allowed it when the wife is in danger of being killed, all efforts were exerted to reconcile the parties. Only when everything is impossible that he allowed it to protect the wife from being murderred.
     Moses did not really contradict himself. He held the same doctrine but allowed it to preserve a life and prevent a crime. 

4. The root of hatred according to St. James. 
     The root of all hatred and all other vices is the raging battle going on between the intellect and the free will, the punishment God imposed on Adam and Eve and all their children. This battle will only cease after a soul live the life of perfect repentance and receive the theological virtue of Faith from God. Then, the soul receives the peace of Christ which the world cannot give. Not even by the UN. 
     This ongoing internal battle comes out externally in the form of wars, impatience, lies, murder, abortion, same sex perversities, adultery, fornication, same sex marriage, lesbianism, homosexuality, communism, Nazism, democracy, liberalism, secularism, paganism, etc, etc, etc. All evil come from this conflict going on within man himself. 'It is not what comes in which is evil but what comes out,' Matthew wrote. What comes out, comes out from the intellect and free will. 

5. The law of love.
     Christ gave the Catholic solution to all these evils that came out of Pandora's box.....Charity. The love of God and neighbor. This is the higher theological virtue which is unattainable without, first, having the theological virtue of Faith and Hope. It is the highest degree in the spiritual life which is further perfected in heaven. 
     Charity begins to be given to the soul together with Faith. Faith has to be perfected for Charity to grow. Faith and Charity cures all spiritual defects like hatred. A soul that is Catholic ought to have Charity. And Charity removes all possibility of divorce. 
     When Christ said; 'whatever God had joined together let no man put asunder. Not all married persons are joined together by God even if officiated by a bishop or cardinal. Those, truly, joined together by God are those with the perfect theological virtue of Faith and the beginnings of Charity. It is the Holy Spirit that joined two together. And the Holy Spirit work only on those with perfect Faith and the beginnings of Charity. The Holy Spirit is the spirit of love. 
     When husband and wives plan on a divorce, it is clear that they never loved each other, or as St. Augustine wrote, they never loved anybody for that matter. 'For he who truly loves one, loves all. He who hates one, hates all.' Charity is a supernatural virtue. It does not exclude anyone, it never ends. 
     So those who even think of divorce have never loved anyone in their lives. And will never love anybody else for the rest of their lives unless they receive from God the supernatural and theological virtues of Faith, Hope and Charity. In short, they have to be truly Catholic. 'Amores Laetitia,' is a document for pagans, not for Catholics. 
    
6. State of the world today; abounding in sin, decay of Faith and waxing cold of Charity, Scriptures has it. 
    Every child is born with natural holiness. It is what makes them cute no matter how they look or what color they are. It is holiness; but his is temporary. It is a gift of God that will last until the child reaches the age of reason. With his first free will act, he becomes a murderer, a blasphemer, a homo, a lesbian, a pervert, a liar, a fornicator, a divorcee and a candidate for hell......unless he becomes a good Catholic which, today,  nobody knows how to do, including Pope Francis and his FrancisBishops. See what is happening with the US bishops? And this is world wide. 
     Man, having a sinful nature, will find it near impossible to have Faith. And anyone without Faith will have no Charity. So, today, all marriages are bound to end in divorce, separation, or one of them cheating on the other. A couple like Louis and Zelie, parents of St. Therese was only possible in the 1900, not today. 
     And Pope Francis knows that. So what? Well, go with the tide. A most modernist solution. Truly a modern solution; but an immoral and heretical solution.. The Catholic Church has Christ's solution, Charity, why didn't he give that Catholic solution. It is a solution that will give the couple a taste of heaven here on earth and everlasting life. Pope Francis' solution in 'Amores laetitia' will just give the couple hell. 

7. The Gospel deals with divorce but ends up with giving a child as an example for imitation. 
     St. Thomas gives the spiritual description of a child as one with natural holiness, thus having the natural virtues needed for salvation. A child loves even those who mistreat him. It is what adult husbands and wives do not have when they plan for a divorce. So the Gospel states; if a child can love their most cruel parents, how come husbands and wives can hate each other to the point of divorcing. If you are Catholics, you should know how to believe and how to love. So darn it. Act like Catholics and love one another and throw that document of divorce including 'Amores laetitia' in the garbage.

THE SUPRESSIONS !!!!

 1. The suppressions.
     Countless suppressions are going on right now. Supressions by the Vatican Office of communities, fraternities, dioceses, parishes, churches, monasteries, etc.....The reason for the suppressions are unknown. But that does not matter for the purpose of analysis. Basing it on the doctrine of Divine Providence, we can only say that God, Himself, suppressed  them  for one reason; it is chastisement for the suppressed entity for not being Catholic enough, i.e. because they are not going towards the right direction, the salvation of their souls.  It's God's way of saying; 'pipe down, think and pray. You are going the wrong direction. Find your way back, then proceed.'

2. God treats the three different kinds of communities in three different ways.
     The first community is the true Catholic Church, who, being under the guidance of Divine Grace and, ruled by the three theological virtues, is continuously in the right direction. God continuously direct such a community, fill up their lives with blessings and guide them to the perfection of the Christian Life. This community, called the Catholic Church, can never be suppressed. God sustains it and the gates of hell can never  prevail against it.
     God takes care of this community because He puts them forward as an example for the world to imitate. 
     This is the Mytical Body of Christ and they have the visible signs of the true Church described in the Nicene Creed. They are deserving of  everlasting life. 
     They make up a community, many souls with one mind and one heart. God directs them, thus they do not commit errors. They do not need reminders.

     The second group is not yet a community thus they are not yet Catholic.  But they are in the right direction. They know their way but they are committing errors. In which case, God have to correct them. God does this through chastisements; sort of telling them, 'slow down or stop for a moment because you are in the wrong direction.' For you to proceed, will make you go deeper into error. So stop completely. Think, pray, review, study, get your bearings, consult your maps. And when you are sure of the right direction, proceed. 
     God does this to the institutional Church. Whenever His external Church is committing errors (His true Church does not commit errors,) God, Himself, suppresses it through persecution from emperors and other heads of state and even from Popes.  This attempts at suppression makes His external Church that still lacks grace, think and pray, so it may obtain more graces to avoid errors. 
     This is what happened with the Franciscans of the Immaculate. They were suppressed by Pope Francis because, even though they were more evangelical than the Jesuits, their male group were suppressed. Why the Franciscans? Because they were more in the right direction than the Jesuits; but they were committing some errors in the spiritual life that could prevent them from going to heaven. 
     So like the wise man lost in the forest, the rule is, 'stop immediately. Don't proceed because you might get more lost. Stop and get your bearings right. Consult the Rule of St. Francis and see where you went wrong. Then proceed. 
      This is the same message to all those suppressed by Pope Francis like the Priestly Fraternity of the Holy Apostles in Brussels, the Mariavald monastery and the countless groups suppressed by Bishops, 'you are doing well, but you are committing a serious mistake that can bring you to hell. So stop. For your good, God will use Pope Francis and other evil bishops, like God used Judas, to force you to stop and drop everything. Pray, review, check your spiritual map, consult the Fathers and doctors of the Church, find out your errors, correct them and then proceed. 
     More wonderfully God sends them 'renewal saints' to direct them in the right path. When God 'suppresses' them, it is God who would eventually renew them. In either case, the group must cooperate with the action of the 'renewal saint'  and the action of God by being 'poor in spirit,' the first Beatitude.

     The third group is completely outside the Catholic Church and are in no way leading towards it. They are leading towards the wide road that leads to destruction. God, still, chastises them in the hope to convert them. But they do not benefit from the chastisement. God leaves them by themselves as they go down the steep wide road that leads to destruction. 

     The second group are chastised or suppressed by a third party unjustly. The third group, as the wise Gamaliel said, 'if this work is from man, don't bother, they will disappear soon, just like the 'new' church of Pope Francis which is just made by an Argentinian man. 
     But if this is the work of God, no one should touch it because you would be going against  God's work. Just as Pope Francis together with Volpi and countless cardinals are going against God's work by suppressing countless second group communities. Imagine how many church officials are going to hell for going against the under ground church of China; Pope Francis, Cardinal Parolin.....and McCarrick. Not so much for his, now, publicised sin, but because he helped suppressed a Church that is a work of God.
     The Ursulines in the  US were not suppressed. They just  disappeared by themselves. Have they become just made by mere men, like the Benedictines, Jesuits, Franciscans, Opus Dei, Pentecostals, etc... today. 
     They used to be founded by Saints; but after centuries of provincial  meetings they have become man-made destined to cease to exist, according to Gamaliel. Like the Synod meetings these days held by Pope Francis. These Synods  are  transforming the institutional church inspired by God to a mere Argentinian man-made work destined to disappear soon by itself.

3. The suppression does not necessarily benefit the subject..
     A suppression is only God's way of saying, 'you are going the wrong way, stop and recheck before proceeding.' Man is still free. He can obey or disobey. And history shows man made both choices, the wrong and the right.
     Like the suppression to correct an error does not necessarily correct the error. It needs the cooperation of those being corrected. Judas was corrected but he did not correct himself. The Jesuits were suppressed but most of them still embrace the error of 'laxism.'. 
     The Franciscans of the Immaculate were suppressed.  Do they know why? It has nothing to do with the Vatican or Fr. Volpi. God is telling them they are doing something against the teaching of the Church; which neither Pope Francis nor Fr. Volpi know. But the Franciscans, themselves, do not know. So they tend to defend themselves against the unjust actions of Pope Francis but without going deeper into finding out what errors they have in the spiritual life that made God use the Pope to suppress them. 
     For the third group, teaching them, today, is almost hopeless, just like the Democrats. Just like Pope Francis who cannot be corrected by the 'Dubia.' The raising of 'renewal saints' is more effective than mere suppression. So why suppress rather than send 'renewal saints?' Because, today, no one listen to saints. They ridicule saints.  
     The Jews were suppressed by the Romans but they did not learn their lesson. Though suppressed everywhere for centuries, Feinstein and Schumer are still acting like the Jews two thousand years ago; treating Kavanaugh the way Christ was treated. They have not learned their lessons. The institutional Catholic Church have not learned the lesson of the Reformation. So the church is being suppressed by Pope Francis, himself. Because the Catholic Church is in the right direction but filled with errors. God is using someone outside the Church, Pope Francis, to suppress it so the Church can stop, think, pray, check her maps, see where it went wrong. And when the right direction is clear, then, to proceed. 
     The suppression, like the suppression of the Jesuits, is temporary. When the error is detected and corrected, God, Himself, resurrects the group. Why would God allow a group to continue in error and go deeper into greater error?

4.  Pope Francis is suppressing the institutional church. 
      He said it himself.  He does not like the apostolic church. He wants a 'new' man - made church that is merciful to all unrepentant sinners.  The institutional Church has so many errors as shown in Vatican II. Pope Francis is a product of this error-filled church. And God had chosen him to suppress this church to notify her that she is filled with errors. Just like she was before the Council of Trent wherewith she was filled with Lutheran heresies. 
     Today, Pope Francis is suppressing  the Catholic church in China; long time a spiritual babe because of communist repression. To prevent them from reaching their goal, inclusion inside the Catholic Church.     

     Pope  Francis is suppressing those outside the Church but are aiming to enter the Church, to prevent them from entering the true Church. Like the fledgling church in China. His papal visit to fledging Catholic nations is for the same purpose; like the Slaves,  Japan, South America, Poland, Ireland, Korea, Philippines, etc. The Churches here are not fully Catholic. Due to the crisis in the Church, these church are fledgling that are breathing their last death breath. Pope Francis is nipping them in the bud. Now, who is he who should be doing something as diabolical as this? 

     He is encouraging all non-Catholic and pagan religions to remain as they are. He is telling all Protestant and Schismatic sects  to remain as they are. He is praising the communist showing that he is a communist himself. Imagine seeing him cry when the communists bishop delegates arrived in the last Synod of the Youth in the Vatican. 
     He is telling every non-Catholic sect to join the institutional church without setting aside their heresies. Yes, like the SPPX, the, Orthodox, the communist, etc, you can join the cockles of the vineyard, without turning into wheat. What happened to the cockle?

5. Gamaliel.  
    The wise Pharisee Gamaliel, believed to be teacher of St. Paul, seeing that the apostles were being persecuted and suppressed in Jerusalem spoke out saying;
    'Theudas appeared, claiming to be someone important and about four hundred men joined him, but he was killed and all those who were loyal to him were disbanded and came to nothing. After him came Judas the  Galilean at the time of the census. He also drew people after him, but he too perished and all who were loyal to him were scattered. So now I tell you, have nothing to do with these men, and let them go. For if this endeavour or this activity is of human origin, it will destroy itself. But if it comes from God, you will not be able to destroy them, you may even find yourselves fighting against God.'
     Pope Francis appeared claiming to be Pope and about a few hundred FrancisBishops. But they died and the FrancisChurch was disbanded and came to nothing. After him came pope Tagle or Parolin. He also drew people after him, like some Filipino bishops. And they, too, perished and all who were loyal to him were scattered having no love for one another. So now I tell you, have nothing to do with the Franciscans and the Chinese Catholic. If you cannot help them leave them alone. For if their endeavour is of human origin like the FrancisChurch, it will destroy itself. But if it comes from God, like the Franciscans and the Chinese Catholics, you will not be able to destroy them; you may even find yourselves fighting against God. 
      And those who fight against God; where do they go?

SALVATION IN THE PRESENT SITUATION.

 1. Salvation in the present situation. 
     Salvation is possible in any situation. A little adjustment is imperative. But all in all, it is greatly possible to save one's soul in any situation. 
     Christ gave us several different situations; and how to save one's soul in each different situation. In short, Christ gave us the way we can save our souls in all possible situations that can happen on this earth and within the history of mankind, even in the worse situation as on Good Friday, when Satan seems to rule the world. Yet that was the time that the redemption of man was accomplished. 

     In Rome, a group of well-intentioned authors sat down to make up a way of saving one's soul considering the present confusing situation. They were guided by Bishop Ganswain and Pope Benedict, himself. They were in good hands. But they combined Scriptural and man-made solution. 
     Christ had already made provision for this. We just have to find out the solution from Scriptures and the Fathers of the Church. We do not have to go any further. I will keep the Scriptural doctrines and set aside the mere man-made ideas. 

2. Events in the life of Christ are often repeated in the history of men as a way to educate man on how to pass his tests. 
     There are many events in the life of Christ. And these events are supposed to be repeated in the history of mankind in a mystical way. There is His birth often repeated every year. There is his public life repeated daily. There is His Passion, His Resurrection and Pentecost. These last three are seldom repeated. 
     The most repeated amongst the events in the life of Christ is the Sixth day of His passion. Why? Because it is the time that the Faith of the Church is greatly tested, John Newman wrote.  God tests the Faith of the Church many times through history. Then, follows either everlasting life or eternal condemnation. 
     The Church is undergoing a grand test of Faith today. Newman thinks that today's test is the last grand test. It is identical to Good Friday which was a grand test for the apostles. What should be our proper response? This is what the group meeting in Rome with Ganswain was trying to formulate. Their proposals were in the right direction; but it is incomplete, thus their proposal cannot solve the problem. Let us  improve their proposal by simply going back to the solution Christ had already taught us. This is found in the mystical understanding of Good Friday. 
     
     This meeting in Rome is an honest attempt to formulate the reaction all Catholics must adapt, faced by an intolerable situation in the Church. It is the first attempt at a solution; but there is too much man-made elements in it. 
     Today's problem is a supernatural problem. The solution must be purely supernatural, i.e. based on the supernatural  and theological virtue of Faith. So we must return to the sources of Faith, Divine Revelation, as found in Scriptures and Tradition.

3. The FOUR elements in the analysis of the present situation in the Church. 
      a.) First, the definition of the INSTITUTIONAL Church. Scriptures described it as cockles, the unfaithful husbandmen who neglected the vineyard, the foolish virgins, souls like pathway, stony soil or soil with thorny weeds, etc. All of these were condemned by Christ. He, even, fired the husbandmen and gave the vineyard to others who would take better care of it. 
     It is the shell of the true Church; the buildings and offices of the Congregations in the Vatican. It is the men with miters, pectoral crosses and in purple. It is the men and women with baptismal and marriage certificates. It is the baptised who never grew in Faith. The ordained and consecrated who never perfected their knowledge of the Catholic Faith. These are the gongs St. Paul described. It is Pope Francis who have abandoned Christ before the UN and is preaching an entirely weird sect. 
     They are all called 'Catholics' but they do not have a single sign of the true Church as described in the Nicene Creed. 
     The institutional church today is like the Chosen people on Good Friday. They were all pure external ceremonies like the washing of hands, burning incense, killing bulls, wearing trinkets. And most of them, from the High priest, down to the Scribes and Pharisees were against Christ and hating Him to the point of planning his death. 
     That is what the Vatican church is doing. It is searching for the true church to annihilate it in the hope that no one can return to the True Faith. Pope Francis and his gang actually said that; they are re-structuring the church so that it will not be able to return to its primitive state as at the time of Christ and the apostles.
     The Chosen people were meant to be the first Catholics. It didn't work; though the first apostles were Jews. Today, the Gentile were meant to be the new Chosen people. It seems not to be working either. Well, Christ said, in the parable of the wedding feast, that He will just go to the cross roads and invite others. 
     The institutional church, today, looks like the Jews on Good Friday, like Catholic Rome in St. Benedict's time, like Europe during Martin Luther's time, like the Vatican during Benedict's time and like today during Vigano's time. So just like the Benedicts and the Viganos who had to leave and hide,  we must do, likewise. 

      b.) Secondly, the definition of the state. The states, in the natural level and unlightened by the true religion, will be like the state of Israel in the Old and the New Testament; basically, pagan and anti-Catholic, like all the states in the history of men  up to Obama, Macron, Trudeau, Merkel, etc.
      They are the proto-types of the Romans on Good Friday. They take orders from the Jews and crucifies the awaited Messiah of the Jews. Today, they still do the same. Even Pope Francis and his minions take orders and money from the Soros Open Society Foundation and shows special affections to them. Pope Francis seems to have been invited for the inauguration of the third temple to proclaim the one world religion in consonant with the one world government; both concepts are heresies. Both movements are directed to the destruction of the Catholic Church. 
     Pope Francis has been recruited by the UN to head the conspiracy of evil mentioned by John Newman; this is a union of all pagans, all Protestants, all different religions, all secular powers, all atheist and secret organisations. United with them are majority of the cardinals, bishops and priest together with Pope Francis. Here is the expected monster union of church and state described as the beasts. 

     c.) Thirdly, THE PEOPLE. 
      The Jews on Good Friday is the prototype of the people today. 
      The state of the institutional Church is reflected in the state of governments of the world. The unbelievable corrupt system prevailing in the US government as it goes against its own elected President is a reflection of the unbelievable corrupt system prevailing in the Vatican as it goes against its God, Jesus Christ. 
      Just as the communist left minority is practically asserting their atheistic philosophy on the entire US system, Pope Francis, the left leaning Pope, is forcing the Church to submit to communist domination; in China, in Nicaragua, in Argentina, in Eastern 
Europe, etc. Pope Francis had been denigrading democracy, which is a heresy, but better than communism, while outwardly praising communism. In the last US election the Pope sided with Sanders while going against Donald Trump whose policies were more Catholic than the Pope. And there is the Italian Zanotelli and Salvini, both are ten times more Catholic than Pope Francis but greatly disliked by Pope Francis and Spadaro.
     As Our Lady of Fatima had warned; communism will enslave the world,  not from Russia that is more Christian today, having ceased to be communist, thanks to Gorbachev down to Putin. The great evil of communism will come, mainly,  from the US and China. 
     Satan had been allowed by God to take over and rule the world as man's last test, according to John Newman and Robert Benson. Pope Leo XIII confirmed this. The devil will use atheistic  communism, the philosophy that denies the existence of God and presents man as the god of the new age one religion, under the guidance of the devil. 
      Christ, further, confirmed this when He described the state of the world as 'abounding in sin, the decay of Faith and the waxing cold of Charity;' and this will be the state of the clergy.
      Abbot Chautard in his classic 'The Soul of the Apostolate' wrote that the laymen will always be one degree lower in the spiritual life than their parish priest or bishops. What is lower than abounding in sin, the decay of Faith and waxing cold of Charity? It is a return to total paganism. 
     The populace will believe anything and everything.  They will only do things that they want, and impose what they like on others, and if others refuse, they will punish others by driving them away while eating in restaurants. 

     That is the state of the world today, especially the state of the institutional Church. 
      Add these pictures together; an unfaithful institutional church, a anti-Catholic state, an atheistic populace......with the devil as ruler of the present world......what do we have?  A place where salvation of one's soul is impossible.

      d.) Fourthly, the true Church and the way of salvation. 
      Above the above confusion is the true Church. How does it look like?  How do we establish it? Everybody is giving the impression they know the Catholic Church. But nobody can point out where she is. No bishop nor priest can prove that his diocese or parish is Catholic. No 'catholic school' can prove that it is Catholic. Even if the bishop or priest, themselves, show some degree of holiness, they cannot point to a Catholic Church in their parish or diocese. Never can the Vatican prove that it is a Catholic city. 
     How come? Because they do not have the visible and spiritual signs of the Catholic Church as found in the Nicene Creed. But we cannot say that  the Catholic Church  have disappeared from the world. That would be heresy. The meeting in Rome was an honest effort to re-establish the Catholic Church in the world. 
      But the Catholic Church already exists since Pentecost. And the Holy Spirit is already in her as her life. There is nothing more that anyone has to do to start a Church.....unless like Pope Francis, you want to start a new Protestant sect, which he did. 
      The meeting in Rome laid down some principles on which the Church must be built on. And they based those principles on the ideas of Pope Benedict and St. Benedict of Nursia......thus it was referred to as the Benedict Option. The direction is correct, but it does not conform to the image on how the Church should look today. 

4. General principles on which the Catholic Church at worse times are based.
     Guided by the two Benedict's mentioned above, the Catholic Church today, living in an environment identical to Good Friday, where Satan rules, where both the pagan state and the institutional church wanted to kill the Church, and where the only capable preacher could not preach because He is being crucified, and where those who could preach, the apostles, were not yet perfectly trained.......and, therefore, absolutely nobody knows how to save one soul......
     The first principle is expressed by John Paul II in his splendid encyclical exclusively addressed to bishops because it was too deep, 'Veritatis splendor.' Here he expressed repeatedly the first step that leads to salvation is to go home, sell all your possessions and come follow Me. 
     This is the Act of Faith. To possess nothing and believe that if we seek God, all the rest will be given to us on earth and eternal life besides.
     The second principle is use the proceeds from what was solve to put into practice the physical works of mercy. This is the beginning of Charity. 
     The third principle is obtain grace to be able to rise up to the spiritual works of mercy. This grace attained through contemplative prayer enables the soul to know the supernatural teachings of the Christ in the New Testament and put them into practice thus improving the soul's Charity, but not perfecting it, yet.
     With perfect Faith and the beginnings of Charity, the soul has entered the true Church of Christ and is deserving of eternal salvation. This can be attained with the help of priests, bishops and the Pope. All it needs are acts of the mind and the free will enlivened by Divine grace. This was the age  prophesied by Christ to the Samaritan Woman; 'the time will come, when true worshippers will worship in spirit and in truth.' This is that time.

5. 'Alone together.'
    The above three principles describes the soul alone. He is the unit that makes one element of the Church. But the Church cannot be one unit. It must be single units living in community.
     So the Church must be made of many individuals who have done the above three principles. The several 'clones' living together makes up the Catholic community. Thus their description is 
'alone living together.' Again, all the individuals must have perfect Faith and the beginnings of Charity.
     They cannot be mere men or exclusively women. They must be made up of men, women, adults, children, old men, young babies, normal, abnormal, healthy, sick, priest, laymen, bishops, grandmothers, active and retired priests and bishops, wedded and unwed mothers, saints, autistics, neurotics ..... but during these days, no cockles. And, of course, a Pope. It has to be like this because the Church must embrace all men. 

6. 'Fuga mundo.'
     All of them have left the bad world as defined by St. Augustine. But they are still in the world but not of the bad world. So where are they. Well, just a stone throw away from the bad world, but living apart from the world and in silence and solitude. Their main occupation is 'Ora et Labora', dividing these two into activities spent in study and prayer. 
     By now, the logistics in running this Church is unimaginable. But by the grace of God that rules this Church, it is easy, light and sweet. This Church is witness to the fact that if the world had obeyed the commands of Christ, it would have been a paradise here on earth. But, now, it is too late.

7. Pope Benedict started it.
    Pope Benedict, by his resignation had, in fact, declared that he has left the unfaithful Church as commanded by Christ in the parable on the Kingdom of God, and has spiritually transferred to the true Church. He did this by leaving all things represented by his Papal externals but kept his Papal spiritual duties. Ganswain agrees with this. 
     St. Benedict of Norcia did exactly the same thing. He left corrupt Rome with an anti-Pope at that time and 'fuga mundo', left for a cave,  where, in spirit and in truth, he learned the supernatural way to holiness directly from God by attaining the infused virtues, the beginnings of Faith. 
     The main activity of Pope Benedict at Casa Ecclesia and of St. Benedict of Norcia at Subiaco is to perfect their Faith and to progress to the beginnings of the supernatural virtue of Charity, i.e. contemplation. Thus St. Benedict became the mustard seed that grew into the Catholic Church of Europe while Pope Benedict became the mustard seed meant to sustain the crumbling Church in the Vatican. 

8. There you have it, the Catholic Church today.
    It is pointed to the world by the Samaritan Woman and the Apocalyptic Woman of the Book of Revelation. Details will be provided by the infused virtue of Faith, Hope and Charity after  the soul have left the world, distributed all one's possession in acts of Charity, mastered and obeyed all the commandments of Christ as learned from the infused virtues. 
    This is the narrow road that leads to the true Church. Can you do even the first step? That is why 'Few will enter it. '  Yet, this is the only way to enter the true Church.......in these very bad times.
