Road Perdition



The Hidden Broad Road to Perdition


Dear friends,


As I wrote last month (http://wordbelife.blogspot.it/2015/04/spiritual-food-1504.html), I wanted to offer a personal experience but I did not find the time to finish it last month. A few of the reasons that I would like to offer this experience is to help us realize the situation we are in today so as to open our eyes more regarding the very subtle traps and the underhanded snares of our enemy.


I think most of you can recall THE VISION OF POPE LEO XIII in 1884:
Exactly 33 years to the day prior to the great Miracle of the Sun in Fatima, that is, on October 13, 1884, Pope Leo XIII had A REMARKABLE VISION. When the aged Pontiff had finished celebrating Mass in his private Vatican Chapel, attended by a few Cardinals and members of the Vatican staff, he suddenly stopped at the foot of the altar. He stood there for about 10 minutes, as if in a trance, his face ashen white. Then, going immediately from the Chapel to his office, he composed the prayer to St. Michael, with instructions that it be said after all Low Masses everywhere. When asked what had happened, he explained that, as he was about to leave the foot of the altar, he suddenly heard voices - two voices, one kind and gentle, the other guttural and harsh. They seemed to come from near the tabernacle. As he listened, he heard the following conversation:
The guttural voice, the voice of Satan in his pride, boasted to Our Lord: "I can destroy Your Church."
The gentle voice of Our Lord: "You can? Then go ahead and do so."
Satan: "To do so, I need more time and more power."
Our Lord: "How much time? How much power?”
Satan: "75 to 100 years, and a greater power over those who will give themselves over to my service."
Our Lord: "You have the time, you will have the power. Do with them what you will."
The prayer composed by Pope Leo XIII is the following:
SAINT MICHAEL THE ARCHANGEL, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray; and do Thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Host - by the Divine Power of God - cast into hell, Satan and all the evil spirits, who roam throughout the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.
On Sunday April 24th 1994, Pope John Paul II recommended this prayer to be used by all Catholics as a prayer for the Church when he said:
'"May prayer strengthen us for the spiritual battle we are told about in the Letter to the Ephesians: 'Draw strength from the Lord and from His mighty power' (Ephesians 6:10). The Book of Revelation refers to this same battle, recalling before our eyes the image of St. Michael the Archangel (Revelation 12:7). Pope Leo XIII certainly had a very vivid recollection of this scene when, at the end of the last century, he introduced a special prayer to St. Michael throughout the Church. Although this prayer is no longer recited at the end of Mass, I ASK EVERYONE NOT TO FORGET IT AND TO RECITE IT TO OBTAIN HELP IN THE BATTLE AGAINST FORCES OF DARKNESS AND AGAINST THE SPIRIT OF THIS WORLD."'


Unfortunately, though, with the liturgical reform after the council, this gift of Christ by way of his Vicar, was put into the drawer. The prayer was no longer recited and the great majority of the faithful born in the 70’s and after do not know about it nor even know of its existence.


I personally believe that these 100 years conceded to Satan began on October 13, 1917, so as to initiate, in a more intense way, the great battle between the woman and the dragon of the first book of the Bible, Genesis (3:15) and the last book of the Bible, Revelations, chapter 12. I do not think it was by chance what was said in the last part of the homily of Pope Benedict XVI; Esplanade of the Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima; before 500,000 people: 13 May 2010:
WE WOULD BE MISTAKEN TO THINK THAT FATIMA’S PROPHETIC MISSION IS COMPLETE. … At a time when the human family was ready to sacrifice all that was most sacred on the altar of the petty and selfish interests of nations, races, ideologies, groups and individuals, our Blessed Mother came from heaven, offering to implant in the hearts of all those who trust in her the Love of God burning in her own heart. At that time it was only to three children, yet the example of their lives spread and multiplied, especially as a result of the travels of the Pilgrim Virgin, in countless groups throughout the world dedicated to the cause of fraternal solidarity. MAY THE SEVEN YEARS WHICH SEPARATE US FROM THE CENTENARY OF THE APPARITIONS HASTEN THE FULFILMENT OF THE PROPHECY OF THE TRIUMPH OF THE IMMACULATE HEART OF MARY, TO THE GLORY OF THE MOST HOLY TRINITY.”


The centenary of the anniversary of the great miracle of the sun, October 13, 1917 at Fatima, Portugal, will be October 13, 2017! I believe that the Body of Christ, the Church, as a great purification, will go through the stage of the crucifixion as did her Head, Christ, three hours on the cross, and even cry out with her Head: “My God, my God why hast thou forsaken me?” (Mt 27:46; Mk 15:34; Rev 13:7; Ps 22:1). This period will be the GREATEST TRIBULATION in the history of the world and of the Church (Mt 24:21-22; Jer 30:7; Dan 12:1).


During a vision in 1820, it was revealed to Blessed Anna Caterina Emmerick that Satan would be freed from his chains about 80 years before the year 2000; thus toward the end of the 1910’s of the twentieth century. This period of freedom for the fallen seraph would last one century. Pope Leo XIII saw that unusual “dialogue” on October 13. What comes to mind? Satan was liberated October 13, 1917, the day of the last apparition of Our Lady at Fatima, when there was the “miracle of the sun”, and Our Lady promised that “my Immaculate Heart will triumph”! This will correspond to the fulfillment of the “Proto-Gospel” (Gen 3:15) when the woman will crush the head of the serpent in a definitive final way, as St. Louis de Montfort explains in his classical book: “True Devotion to Mary”.


I believe that in a certain sense the Body of Christ will pass the stages of the life of Jesus. It is interesting that Pope Leo XIII (who by the way was the bishop of my diocese, Perugia, for 32 years!) saw that “dialogue” exactly 33 years before the “miracle of the sun” at Fatima; Jesus lived 33 years and finished His life on the cross, when Satan, in His pride, believed to have defeated Christ! I believe that we (the Church) are already in the passion of Jesus if not already on the cross.


Regarding this period of great crisis, Our Lady revealed to Father Stefano Gobbi:
MY ADVERSARY WILL ONE DAY THINK THAT HE IS CELEBRATING A COMPLETE VICTORY: over the world, over the Church, over souls. It will be only then that I will intervene – terrible and victorious – that his defeat may be all the greater when he is certain in his conviction that he has conquered once for all. What is in preparation is so extraordinary that its like has never happened since the creation of the world. That is why everything has already been predicted in the Bible. The terrible struggle between me, the Woman Clothed with the Sun, and the Red Dragon (Rev 12), Satan, who has now succeeded in seducing many souls…” (October 18, 1975).
This Masonic infiltration, in the interior of the Church, was already foretold to you by me at Fatima, when I announced to you that Satan would enter in even to the summit of the Church” (June 13, 1989).
On the other hand, the few priests and bishops who remain faithful to the Truth, Who is God, Our Lady revealed to Father Stefano Gobbi:
It will be a cause of amazement even to the angels of God, a joy to the saints in heaven, a consolation and great comfort for all the just on earth, mercy and salvation for a great number of my straying children, a severe and definitive condemnation of Satan and his many followers. In fact at the very moment when satan will be enthroned as lord of the world and will think himself now the sure victor, I myself will snatch the prey from his hands. In a trice he will find himself empty-handed, and in the end the victory will be exclusively my Son’s and mine. This will be the triumph of my Immaculate Heart in the world” (December 19, 1973).
Is it possible at the end of the 100 years of the freedom of Satan, when “my adversary will one day think that he is celebrating a complete victory: over the world, over the church, over souls”, that is, October 13, 2017, that it will seem that the Body of Christ, the Church, is dead, and then immediately after will be the fulfillment of the promise of Our Lady that in the end “my Immaculate Heart will triumph”?!?
First of all, it is necessary that my Enemy has the impression of having conquered everything, of having everything now in his hands. This is why he will be permitted to penetrate even into the interior of my Church, and he will succeed in plunging the sanctuary of God into darkness. He will reap the greatest number of victims from among the ministers of the sanctuary. THIS WILL IN FACT BE A TIME OF GREAT FALLS ON THE PART OF MY BELOVED SONS, MY PRIESTS. (October 18, 1975).
“Behold: when everything will gave come tumbling down, all that will remain will be the strength of their tears that will compel me to intervene in an amazing and terrible way. AND MY TRIUMPH WILL BEGIN WITH THESE BELOVED SONS, MY PRIESTS “ (February 23, 1974).


In the four Gospels one finds many accounts of demon possession. Today one hears little about possessions. 100 years ago it seemed to be easier to detect the good from the bad. I remember once my Dad commented, while we were watching a black and white cowboy movie, that the good guys usually had white hats and the bad guys had black hats. It seems that this is reversed today. 100 years ago the delinquents rebelled and you could see the rebellion. It seems that this extra power conceded to Satan has also been used to channel the energies of those who have given themselves over to the service of Satan, not just to rebel, but to patiently destroy the culture in many ways so as to draw in even more people, especially the youth, into this rebellion against God and against all legitimate authority.


This is where my personal experience might shed some light on some of your experiences in that very often today, the ones who seems OK with smiles and a type of humanistic love, in the end stab you in the back if things do not go the way the want, in particular if you go toward adoration of God and His Truth instead of toward the adoration of the cult of man behind which Satan places himself to be adored. More than ever, in particular in the Church, those who have no concern for the teachings of the Magisterium of the Church and have become blind spiritually after having totally embraced the easier and prideful way of relativism seem more than ever as “angels of light” (2Cor 11:14), at least at first sight!


I think my experience will offer an example of what Our Lady revealed to Father Stefano Gobbi:
Even among my priests how many there are who no longer believe; and yet, they still remain in my Church, true wolves in sheep’s clothing, and they are bringing to ruin a countless number of souls.” (December 1, 1973).
What is it that is obscuring the beauty and the brightness of the Church? It is the smoke of the errors which Satan has caused to enter into it. These are becoming constantly more and more disseminated and are bringing very many souls to the loss of the faith. The cause of such a vast diffusion of errors and of this great apostasy rests with unfaithful pastors. They remain silent when they should speak with courage to condemn error and to defend the truth. They do not intervene when they should be unmasking the rapacious wolves who, hidden beneath the clothing of lambs, have insinuated themselves into the flock of Christ. They are mute dogs who allow their flocks to be torn to pieces. You, on the other hand, must speak out with force and with courage to condemn error and to spread only the Truth. (September 8, 1985).


My God, why have You Abandoned Me?”
“Upon this divine Heart, so crushed and oppressed that He even feels abandonment by the Father, there weighs also all the lack of response and all the ingratitude of his Church, born, like a pure bride, from the womb of his great suffering.
Again today, in his Church, Jesus continues to be abandoned, denied, and betrayed.
He is denied by those who put Him in second place after their own comfort, their own self-seeking and their relish for being accepted and applauded. Pride leads many to deny Him in their words and in their life: ‘I do not know this man!’ (Mt 26:74).
He is also betrayed on the part of those pastors who do not look after the flock entrusted to them, who remain silent out of fear of for the sake of convenience and do not defend the truth from the snares of errors, nor do they protect the sheep from the terrible scourge of rapacious wolves, who present themselves dressed as lambs.
He is abandoned by many priests and religious who leave the stat of their lofty vocation or who do not live in faithfulness to their commitments and who allow themselves to be led completely by the spirit of the world in which they live.
He is rejected and spurned by many of the faithful who follow ideologies which are in style today but which propose values opposed to those of the Gospel, and they descend to compromises simply in order to always have everyone’s approval.
Good Friday I truly being repeated today in a form immensely greater and more universal than that which took place at the time of the passion and death on the Cross. For one thin that was done at that time, a thousand such are being carried out at present. For this reason, in his Mystical body which is the Church, Jesus continues to repeat his painful cry: ‘My God, why have You abandoned Me?’.”
(Good Friday, March 28, 1986).


There has also entered into the Church disunity, division, strife and antagonism.
The forces of atheism and Masonry, having infiltrated within it, are on the point of breaking up its interior unity and of darkening the splendor of its sanctity. These are the times, foretold by me, when cardinals will be set against cardinals, bishops against bishops and priests against priests, and the flock of Christ will be torn to pieces by rapacious wolves, who have found their way in under the clothing of defenseless and meek lambs. Among them there are even some who occupy posts of great responsibility, and by means of them, Satan has succeeded in entering and in operating at the very summit of the Church. Bishops and priests of the holy Church of God, how great today is your responsibility! The Lord is about to demand of you an account of how you have administered his vineyard. Repent; seek pardon; make amends; and, above all, be once again faithful to the task which has been entrusted to you. Sin is being committed more and more; it is no longer acknowledged as an evil; it is sought out; it is consciously willed; and it is no longer confessed. Impurity and lewdness cover the homes built by your rebellion.
This is the reason why my Heart is bleeding: because of the obstinate disbelief and the hardness of your hearts. My Heart is bleeding to see you so closed and insensitive to my sorrowful, motherly admonition. My Heart is bleeding, because I see you roads even now smeared with blood, while you live in an obstinate unconsciousness of that which awaits you.”
(September 6, 1986).


The great trial has arrived for you Church. Those errors which have brought people to the loss of the true faith have continued to spread. Many pastors have been neither attentive nor vigilant and have allowed many rapacious wolves, clothed as lambs, to insinuate themselves into the flock in order to bring disorder and destruction. How great is you responsibility, o pastors of the holy Church of God! You continue along the path of division from the Pope and of the rejection of his Magisterium; indeed, in a hidden way, there is in preparation a true schism which could soon become open and proclaimed. And then, there will remain only a small faithful remnant, over which I will keep watch in the garden of my Immaculate Heart.
(November 15, 1990)




Saint Michael the Archangel at Garabandal (Spain, 1965) said: “Many Cardinal, many Bishops and many Priests are on the road to perdition and with them they are bring many souls”!

Dear friends,
In case you do not have time to read my whole experience, at least go to the end to read some words of consolation and some good advise for these very difficult times!

EXPLANATION FOR THE REASONS FOR MY LETTER TO THE BISHOP:
I celebrated the daily Holy Mass, Monday to Saturday, at 8 o’clock, every week, for more than ten years, in a parish near where I live, where I was not the pastor, nor the vice pastor. In the last 4 to 5 years, the pastor went into the confessional and when I said something that he did not like, he treated me rather harshly after the Mass at the bar. At a certain point, he threatened me to not be allowed to celebrate the Mass in his parish if I preached in that way. After this I went away, but a few days later the pastor telephoned the bishop. I did not expect the pastor to ask the bishop to set me straight after I left this parish. I wanted only a little peace. The new auxiliary bishop came instead of the cardinal of the diocese to speak with me about this situation, together with the pastor of this parish. Knowing that in these situations the person is already prejudged with little opportunity to defend himself, I offered my answer written, since I knew 4 days earlier of this meeting. Here is my letter to the bishop:




The Parish; October 8 2014
Dear Eminence,
May I offer a few of my thoughts regarding the fact that I no longer celebrate the daily Holy Mass at this Parish.


OFTEN A PERSON IS JUDGED BEFORE HAVING BEEN LISTENED to or to listen to him in an artificial way with prejudice. If there is the possibility that the people who have categorized or labeled this person to be able to consider the situation with an open mind, ready to listen equally to the person judged as to the others who want to judge this person, then I offer my motives and convictions, with the hope that perhaps some might be of good will and willing to come out of there preconceived ideas and prejudices.


I CELEBRATED THE DAILY HOLY MASS, MONDAY TO SATURDAY, SINCE 2002. In the last 5 to 6 years, often the pastor, after having listened to my homilies from the confessional, reprimanded me after the Mass at the bar. But when I tried to explain myself with the documents of the Catholic Church, or from the Catechism of the Catholic Church for adults (CCC), the pastor did non want to hear what is found in these documents. When I offered a few of my writings that I posted on the Internet to explain myself better, with many references to the documents of the Church, the pastor did not want to see these things. Sometimes I had the idea to respond to him as Jesus responded before the Sanhedrin (Jn 18:20; Lk 22:53): “I have spoken openly to the world (that is on the Internet)… Why do you ask me? Ask those who have heard me, what I said to them (that is, on the Internet to the whole world!)…” On his part, the Pastor NEVER said to me: “Father Joe, I believe that this phrase that you said (or wrote) during your homily today is in contrast with a document of the Church”, and then to offer me the reference to a document of the Church or from the CCC. And thus, already for years, the Pastor does not allow me to explain myself or to defend myself with these precious documents of the Church.


September 23, after the Holy Mass at the bar, the Pastor finally had the courage to at least threaten me to do as he said otherwise I must no longer celebrate the Holy Mass at the his parish. Already for a good while I did not want to be in this painful situation, but I did not believe that it was prudent or the will of God for me to decide to go away by myself and thus I waited for the indications from the Pastor. Thus when he threatened me, I was already ready and happy to ask him immediately if this was an empty threat or not. He answered no. I said, ok, I will not return, and I said have a nice day to all present! And I left. I was ordained a priest first of all for the universal Church, not just for a parish, and thus in the Holy Mass and in the Sacrament of Reconciliation, I must behave as if before the Lord, who in the end will be my Judge. But a pastor certainly has the right to decide who can celebrate the sacraments in his parish; if the Pastor believes that Father Jo offers obstacle for the souls to arrive to the Truth, who is Jesus, in order to arrive to heaven, it is necessary to ask Father Joe to not offer anymore the sacraments in his parish!


From my experience after many years in the parish, which I will explain more in this article, fundamentally the only criteria for this Pastor is his own head of relativism. Cardinal Ratzinger synthesized this situation of rationalism and subjectivism in the Church in his homily at the Mass preceding the conclave that quickly elected him Pope Benedict XVI: “Today, having a clear faith based on the Creed of the Church is often labeled as FUNDAMENTALISM. Whereas relativism, that is, letting oneself be "tossed here and there, carried about by every wind of doctrine", seems the only attitude that can cope with modern times. WE ARE BUILDING A DICTATORSHIP OF RELATIVISM that does not recognize anything as definitive and whose ultimate goal consists solely of one's own ego and desires.” If we put aside the law of God explained in its fullness in the documents of the Church, who wins the argument or establishes the law of the land? The strongest one! Behold the “dictatorship of relativism”!


THE LAST SEVERAL POPES HAVE SAID THAT THE MOST SERIOUS SIN TODAY IS THAT THERE IS NO MORE SIN; we have lost the sense of sin. One of the most fundamental tasks for Jesus was that of Redeemer, to free us from our sins for those of good will who confess their sins (Mk 2:17; Lk 5:31-32, etc.). Thus one of the tasks most fundamental for the priests is to be the doctor of the souls, to help the souls to identify and to cure the sicknesses of the soul, especially those most grave which are called “mortal sins”, that is, the sins which render the soul dead, but the body walks with a dead soul until death if there is no priest who helps the person to recognize the gravity of their situation and to make a good confession! If the priests do not help the people to identify the sickness of the soul, the people do not have anything to confess, and thus they have no need of Jesus the Redeemer, who came for sinners, not for the just who believe to have no sins. In this way the Redemption is nullified for these people because they do not believe to have need of a Savior.


The saints tell us that the gravest sins are those of omission. Even though the servant, who did not multiply his talent, did not steal or kill anyone, he was called by Jesus “wicked and slothful servant” (Mt 25:26), words rarely used by Jesus in the Gospels! MANY PRIESTS AND BISHOPS TODAY HAVE NOT DONE THEIR PRIMARY JOB, to indicate, with explanations, and cure the sicknesses of the souls. Because after many years of this negligence to help souls to identify their sins according to the CCC and to get out of mortal sin, often the reaction among many people, who even frequent the parish, is very negative when finally a new pastor explains the Catholic religion according to the teachings of the Catholic Church, summarized in the CCC for adults! If one confronts the life of the people, who even frequent the parishes, with the CCC, on the objective level (not subjective which only God can judge), at least the majority are in mortal sin today; and notwithstanding this, there are very few who go to confession and there are many who communicate with the infinite God in the Eucharist!


Today a great many Catholics want, with the blessing (at least tacitly) of the priests and of the bishops, A CHRISTIANITY WITHOUT THE CROSS AND WITHOUT THESE GUILT COMPLEXES WHICH ARE CALLED SINS. And thus very few Catholics today go to confession and many go to psychiatrists which costs much more than to confess ones sins to a priest, who often, unfortunately, is not found in the confessional in many churches.


But many who still go to confession, do not understand anymore what is a sin according to the CCC, because very few priests today take the risk of their primary job to help the souls identify and cure the mortal sicknesses of the soul, mortal sins! The secretary of the Congregation for Clergy, Archbishop Mauro Piacenza, has lamented that many faithful no longer confess their sins. Archbishop Piacenza told Vatican Radio (June 5, 2009) the sacrament of penance has been experiencing a "deep crisis" for decades. Piacenza, an official for the Vatican office on clergy, says FEWER PEOPLE DISTINGUISH BETWEEN GOOD AND EVIL, and as a result do not go to confession. The archbishop said in an interview that if faithful do not have a sense of sin, they might "CONFUSE" CONFESSION WITH "THE COUCH OF A PSYCHOLOGIST OR A PSYCHIATRIST"! (http://www.cathnews.com/article.aspx?aeid=14231).


WHAT WOULD YOU THINK OF A DOCTOR WHO CARED NOTHING ABOUT DISEASE AND DOES NOT WANT TO TALK ABOUT DISEASE and sends patients with a grave disease home telling the patient not to worry because the doctor was afraid of UPSETTING THE PATIENT. He would be considered a quake, an incompetent, culpable of gross professional negligence. He could be sued for malpractice. But if priests do not speak about the only thing that can kill the soul, mortal sin, because the people (spiritual patients) do not want to hear these things, what would you think of such a priest? If the doctor operates in this way, the person could easily loose his life; but if the doctor of souls, the priest, does this, the person could loose his immortal soul which lasts for all eternity. “For what will it profit a man, if he gains the whole world and forfeits his life?” (Mt 16:26; Mc 8:36).


POPE JOHN PAUL II (AMONG MANY OTHER OCCASIONS) SPOKE FIRMLY TO THE US BISHOPS AGAINST THIS "PICK AND CHOOSE SMORGASBORD TYPE CATHOLICISM" in LA in his September 1987 visit: "It is sometimes reported that a large number of Catholics today do not adhere to the teaching of the Church on a number of questions, notably sexual and conjugal morality, divorce and remarriage. Some are reported as not accepting the Church's clear position on abortion. It has also been noted that there is a tendency on the part of some Catholics to be selective in their adherence to the Church's moral teachings. It is sometimes claimed that dissent from the Magisterium is totally compatible with being a “good Catholic” and poses no obstacle to the reception of the sacraments. THIS IS A GRAVE ERROR that challenges the teaching office of the bishops of the United States and elsewhere. I wish to encourage you in the love of Christ to address this situation courageously in your pastoral ministry, relying on the power of God's truth to attract assent and on the grace of the Holy Spirit which is given both to those who proclaim the message and to those to whom it is addressed." (http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/john_paul_ii/speeches/1987/september/documents/hf_jp-ii_spe_19870916_vescovi-stati-uniti_en.html).


It is interesting that Pope John Paul II did not say to the bishops that they must obey me as Pope, but “dissent from the Magisterium” of the Catholic Church! Lumen Gentium 25 teaches clearly that the documents of an ecumenical council ARE INFALLIBLE (CCC 891). The Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC 888-892) tell us that the doctrines of the Church are essential to arrive to sanctity. “When the Church through its supreme Magisterium proposes a doctrine “for belief as being divinely revealed,” and as the teaching of Christ, the definitions “must be adhered to with the obedience of faith.” This infallibility extends as fare as the deposit of divine Revelation itself” (CCC 891). But to the ordinary teaching of the Church “the faithful are to adhere to it with religious assent” which, though distinct from the assent of faith, is nonetheless an extension of it” (CCC 892). Thus the documents in an ecumenical council express in human language the absolute truths which cannot be changed, EVEN BY A FUTURE POPE FOR APPARENTLY GOOD MOTIVES TO MAKE THE NON CATHOLICS FEEL MORE AT EASE or for non practicing Catholics; this would be false ecumenism, false mercy, false love, which offers a superficial and easy solution without the cross of Jesus, but afterwards there is slavery and destruction!


The Catholic Church has always taught: “CONSCIENCE MUST BE INFORMED AND MORAL JUDGMENT ENLIGHTENED. A well-formed conscience is upright and truthful. It formulates its judgments according to reason, in conformity with the true good willed by the wisdom of the Creator. The education of conscience is indispensable for human beings who are subjected to negative influences and tempted by sin to prefer their own judgment and to reject authoritative teachings” (CCC 1783). THE ABSOLUTE TRUTH DOES EXIST! “Conscience can remain in ignorance or make erroneous judgments. Such ignorance and errors are not always free of guilt” (CCC 1801, 1713, 1714). “No one is deemed to be ignorant of the principles of the moral law, which are written in the conscience of every man” (CCC 1860).


After the Vatican Council and the post council was well underway, Pope John Paul II wrote, contesting “certain currents of modern thought … The individual conscience is accorded the status of a supreme tribunal of moral judgment which hands down categorical and infallible decisions about good and evil. … so much so that some have come to adopt a radically subjectivistic conception of moral judgment” (Veritatis Splendor, no. 32; http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/john_paul_ii/encyclicals/documents/hf_jp-ii_enc_06081993_veritatis-splendor_en.html).


When I explained these things in my homilies, based on the Gospel of each day, often the reaction of the Pastor was very negative. Many priests today slowly, and deliberately, have changed the definition of “love” to mean first of all to make the people happy! THE PRIESTS TODAY WHO PREACH THE WHOLE GOSPEL and all of the teachings of the Magisterium of the Church are labeled ridged and old-fashioned, insensitive, lacking in compassion, divisive, judgmental, MORALISTS. While at the same time the ones who maintain a culpable silence, the ones who tell their people what they think they want to hear are seen as understanding, sympathetic, pastorally sensitive and merciful. “Woe to you, when all men speak well of you” (Lk 6:26). “How can you believe, who receive glory from one another and do not seek the glory that comes from the only God?” (Jn 5:44; Gal 1:10). But this way of doing things is not true mercy! THIS IS FALSE LOVE, MISGUIDED COMPASSION, false mercy, false ecumenism, that does not lead to heaven for eternity!?!


BY TELEPHONE THE PASTOR ACCUSED ME OF AGITATING THE PEOPLE. I responded saying that I will no longer agitate the people in his parish because I will no longer return. Then he said to me that I will agitate people in other places. I wanted to say to the Pastor that it is much better to be in agitation here on earth due to mortal sins in order to encourage people to make a good confession and then to persevere with much prayer so as to sin no more, than to be in agitation for all eternity, as I indicated above regarding the QUACK DOCTOR! It is really incredible how we have overturned the values and the eternal truths!?! Today, in a world which criticizes people who seek to live chastity according to their state in life and then praise all types of sex outside of marriage, one can apply more than ever the words of the prophet Isaiah: “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil” (Is 5:20). In the same telephone call, the Pastor asked me: “And so what did these five cardinals write?” I answered: “Simply put, they wrote that you cannot change the Truth; you cannot change the Doctrine of the Church; you cannot change the Catechism of the Catholic Church!” The Truth is Jesus Who is God (Jn14:6) and thus immutable and absolute!


A few years ago I conducted a meeting with the catechists and others in this Parish. In this meeting I made reference several times to the CCC. After the meeting, the catechists of this Parish asked me, WHAT IS THIS BOOK, THE CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH FOR ADULTS? When I talked about this to Father Luke D who came from the diocese to form the catechists in various parishes, also in this Parish, he responded: “It is not my fault, but the fault of the Pastor.” But this means that Father Luke D never made reference to this precious gift of the CCC for adults! At one of our monthly retreats with the clergy of the diocese after having told this to Father Luke B, I asked him if these priests, who form the catechists of the diocese, represent themselves or represent the Catholic Church! Father Luke B did not answer me.


Three or four years ago when I spoke about, in a homily in this Parish, THE DOCUMENTS OF THE CHURCH THAT “THE CHURCH HAS ALWAYS REQUIRED FROM THE FAITHFUL RESPECT AND REVERENCE FOR THE EUCHARIST (“Inaestimabile Donum”, no. 11; see also “Memoriale Domini” http://www.ewtn.com/library/curia/cdwmemor.htm; see also in Italian: “Il Dio Infinito Fra Noi”; http://cibo-spir.blogspot.it/2014/01/il-dio-infinito-fra-noi.html), the Pastor was angry with me. When I asked him if he was saying that I should not make reference to the documents of the Church in my homilies in his parish, the Pastor, who seems meek and humble with everyone, shouted at me at the bar: “In this case, NO!” Modern people today do not want to make an act or gesture of humility even before the infinite God in the Eucharist. But you cannot detach or separate the body from the heart; you end up with less reverence before God also in the heart. And our Holy Mother Church knows this very well! Behold the first priority of many priests today, MAKE THE PEOPLE HAPPY! We have changed the priorities of the two fundamental commandments of the Gospel; we have put first love of neighbor, and then, in reality and in fact, we have put love of God in the second place, even though we say “it is not true”!


But if you put the first commandment of love of God after the second to love ones neighbor, in the end everything falls apart, you loose everything. This is precisely the subtle and underhanded strategy of Satan. It is very interesting how many times one finds this FALSE “LOVE” used in the powerful strategy of the 33 directives of the Grand Master of the Freemasons to the Catholic Masonic bishops of the destruction of the Catholic Church! The word “love” APPEARS 11 TIMES in these 33 directives! “Satan disguises himself as an angel of light” (2Cor 11:14).

NEGLIGENT RELIGIOUS LEADERS ARE OFTEN AFRAID TO SPEAK freely and say what needs to be said – for fear of losing favor with people. As Truth himself says, they are certainly not guarding their flock with the care expected of a shepherd but are acting like hirelings, because hiding behind a wall of silence is like taking flight at the approach of the wolf. These are the people whom the Lord is reproaching through the prophet, when he says: ‘THEY ARE ALL DUMB DOGS, THEY CANNOT BARK’ (Is 56:10) … If a religious leader is afraid to say what is right, what else can his silence mean but that he has taken flight? Whereas, if he stand firm in defense of his flock, he is building up a wall for the house of Israel against its enemies. And so again the sinful people are told: ‘Your prophets have seen false and foolish visions for you; they have not exposed your iniquity in order to provoke you to repentance.’ …” (Pope St. Gregory the Great; Office of Readings; Sunday, Week 27 of OT).


WHAT KIND OF MEN ARE THEY who, FEARING TO HURT THOSE THEY SPEAK TO, not only do not prepare them for imminent temptations, but even promise the happiness of this world, which God did not promise to the world itself?...” (Sermon of St. Augustine on the Shepherds; Office of Readings; Sunday, Week 24 of OT, Friday).


The Pastor at the bar after my Mass asked me questions not to understand better my thought or even less to learn something from this priest (?!?) but to draw out of me a phrase out of context in order to criticize me and to put me straight according to his intelligence and wisdom (with the help of an Indian priest student), similar to how the Pharisees did to Jesus with their traps. THIS IS WHY I PREPARED THIS ARTICLE! The first priority is to resolve the problem in a hurry, in this case, Father Joe, not to listen well or to put oneself in the shoes of the accused, nor to understand his thought, and even less to learn something from this person! This happens very often in the Church today; I have been in the Church all my life. How many times the superiors do not listen, but instead the person is accused and already put into the category of a “problem”. But is this love according to the Gospel? If I cannot not make reference to the documents of the Church, summarized in the CCC, how can I defend myself if I am not in agreement with a priest totally immersed in relativism? If two or more persons do not accept in common a few Truths from God which are immutable, how can one construct a dialogue in order to arrive at a conclusion? It is not necessary to have a BA degree in mathematics, as I have, in order to understand this grave problem. It is like constructing on quick sand a dialogue, or a program, but not on the Rock! (Visit: “The Great Responsibility of Religious Leaders”; http://josephdwight.wordpress.com/2014/08/07/great-responsibility/). If one admits to change one doctrine of the Church, in principle, one opens the door to change all the infallible doctrines of the Church. BEHOLD THE DESTRUCTIVE HIDDEN POISON IN THE NAME OF (FALSE) CHARITY, misguided compassion, false mercy, false ecumenism!?! (Visit my article: “Who Decides The Truth?”; http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2014/06/who-decides-truth.html).


Spoiled children, when things do not go as they wish, say that everything is wrong without explanation with some documents or information outside of their own heads because it is easier to embrace the philosophy of life: “Ignorance is bliss”; they do not want to see any documents and so “I AM IN COMMAND”! Mature adults offer fraternal correction saying that a certain phrase spoken or written is not in harmony with the teachings of the Church and offer some documents in order to explain and to help the other person. This is true love; this is putting oneself in the shoes of the other while listening and reading well what the person said or wrote before offering suggestions or council. Chiara Lubich often spoke about the necessity of “making oneself one”, putting oneself in the shoes of the other, otherwise there is not the foundation to have true love!


Last year, August 14, 2013, you, Your Eminence Bassetti, called me into your office due to the article that I wrote: “The FALSE POPE – Saint Hildegard” (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2013/02/resignation-of-pope-benedict.html.). After you offered me some advice and also a talk on the danger of Sedevacantism. After I listened to you well I finally explained that I lost a sister, brother-in-law, their 7 children and my mother in one of these groups. And thus I wrote more than 150 pages on the Internet, hoping that they might return to the Catholic Church. The title of the article is “A Common Sense Rebuttal to Schismatic Traditionalists and Sedevacantists” (http://schis-trad.blogspot.com). When you asked me if these prophecies of several saints, and even a doctor of the Church, refer to Pope Francis, I answered very clearly: “I DO NOT KNOW, BUT MY EYES ARE OPEN”! It takes time to recognize the tree by its fruits (Lk 6:44; Mt 7:16-18). I said this several times to the Pastor, that “I do not know, but my eyes are open”, but often he wants to put into my mouth words that I did not say to accuse me. A few days ago, by telephone, when I asked him why does he continually put words into my mouth that I did not say, he responded: “The problem is your thoughts”! At least in that moment the Pastor admitted, recognized, that I did not say specifically that the prophecies referred to Pope Francis. But every person has the right to his thoughts. God respects our free will totally because GOD KNOWS HOW TO LOVE; even Pope John Paul II explained that not even God uses a person as a means for His ends without the permission and consent of the person” (The Personalism of Pope John Paul II; visit my article: The Great Responsibility of Religious Leaders”; http://josephdwight.wordpress.com/2014/08/07/great-responsibility/).


Before the second coming of Jesus Christ “that day will not come, unless THE REBELLION (APOSTASY) COMES FIRST, and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the son of perdition, who opposes and exalts himself against every so-called god or object of worship, so that he takes his seat in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God” (2Thess 2:3-4).


In the Catechism of the Catholic Church, number 675 we find: Before Christ's second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers (Cf. Lk 18:8; Mt 24:12).. The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth (Cf. Lk 21:12; Jn 15:19-20) will unveil the “mystery of iniquity” in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth. The supreme religious deception is that of the Antichrist, a pseudo-messianism by which man glorifies himself in place of God and of his Messiah come in the flesh.” (Cf. 2Thess 2:4-12; 1Thess 5:2-3; 2Jn 7; 1Jn 2:18,22).


I AM VERY SURPRISED AT THE PRIORITIES THAT ONE FINDS AMONG MANY PRIESTS AND BISHOPS today in the Church. Very few bishops are worried about the fundamental problem today that we have “lost the sense of sin” because the priests do not speak about the grave sickness of the soul that were once called “mortal sin”! But if a priest opens his eyes to the signs of the times, in order not to be a hypocrite (Lk 12:56; Mt 16:3; 24:51), this is the only mortal sin today! In this fierce but underhanded battle, it is very important to be “wise as serpents”, not just “innocent as doves” (Mt 10:16) which is the easier part.


Often among many priests and bishops THEIR ONLY CONCERN IS EXCLUSIVELY DIRECTED TOWARD SOCIAL PROBLEMS (or environment), and they forget that Jesus died on the Cross and rose again to obtain for us the great gift of redemption and to save souls; sins are at the base, at the roots, also of social problems! But it gives us more delight to believe to resolve the social problems; we feel more important before the people, instead of living the priestly vocation of identifying and treating the sicknesses of the souls! And thus the teaching of the theology of liberation, which is a true betrayal of Christ and of his Gospel, is becoming more and more widespread. By now a great number of people in the parishes do not want to hear about mortal sin explained well in the CCC; and then they do not want to pay the price to get out of the habit of many years of mortal sin with the strongest and most fundamental solution: the sacraments and ardent prayer, to kneel before the tabernacle with the Rosary. Do we not say in the Act of Contrition: “I firmly resolve with the help of Thy grace to sin no more and to avoid the near occasion of sin”? Certainly, to promise these things when the people have not been helped to “avoid the occasion of sin” for many years, is not easy without a lot of prayer and the Sacraments, with adoration! Today the false “solution”, offered by many priests, bishops and cardinals in the Church, is to ignore the absolute Truth expressed by the Magisterium of the Church, and to approve and even bless, in the name of “compassion” without the obligation to carry the cross of Christ. But this in reality is A MALEDICTION, A TRUE BETRAYAL!


I DO NOT WANT TO RETURN TO THIS PARISH and be treated so badly because I did not preach according to the relativism of the pastor. I feel like I am criticized by a protestant pastor because I did not preach like a protestant. But to be criticized by a relativist is worse than being badly treated by a protestant pastor (if he is not a relativist) because at least with the protestant pastor we are in agreement with the Bible; but with a relativist, there is not even the Bible in common as the base of departure because all is relative according to the mind of each person; quick sand, not the Rock of the absolute Truth! Sometimes I feel like saying the words of POPE BENEDICT in his first homily as pope: “Pray for me, that I may not flee for fear of the wolves (April 24 2005; http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/benedict_xvi/homilies/2005/documents/hf_ben-xvi_hom_20050424_inizio-pontificato_en.html).


Today, truly in the Catholic Church, among many priests and bishops, it is worse than the Tower of Babel before Christ, because at least with the Tower of Babel before Christ one could slowly communicate with a dictionary. But today the ideas and even the fundamental base is confused and set aside, the absolute Truth from the Creator of the universe and also the nature of man.


During on of these occasions at the bar, the Pastor, together with his paid pet who would bark at me (Father Sajen (George), an Indian student priest), sought to set me straight according to his head without any reference to the richness of the Church in these 2000 years. At a certain point I said: “I must save my soul”! The Pastor responded: “Me too”. Then I said: “I WILL NOT FOLLOW YOU; I WILL NOT FOLLOW YOU”!


Dear Eminence. If You order me under obedience to return to the Parish to celebrate the daily Holy Masses, I will obey. But if You ask me in freedom if I want to return to the Parish to celebrate the daily Holy Masses, my answer is absolutely NO, for the reasons indicated above.


I will pray for You and all of our Mother Church in the time of great purification (“great tribulation” – Mt 24)!


IN THE END MY IMMACULATE HEART WILL TRIUMPH!” Our Lady of Fatima, Portugal, 1917. There will be fulfilled the Proto Gospel (Gen 3:15) – Saint Louis de Montfort!

The day after, the Auxiliary Bishop gave me this hand written answer to my letter:


October 9, 2014
Rev. Father Joseph Dwight
Parish Vicar of Lisciano Niccone


P.C.
Father Pastor
Pastor of the City (not the same zone as Lisciano Niccone)


Dear Father Joe,
I am sorry for the roughness that I used with you yesterday, but in your writing there is truly a harsh judgment against Father Pastor, Father George (Sajen) and many other priests and bishops, that you accuse of relativism and of bad conscience in guiding the people of God, according to a numerous repetition of “to make the people happy”.


I reassert the things that I said to you yesterday, so that they will be remembered:
1) The teaching regarding sin is very important, but it cannot be ALL of the preaching: the Gospel (and the CCC) speak also of joy, of mercy, of charity, of fraternity … to insist always about sin means to preach in an UNFAITHFUL way to revelation and to the magisterium: when a part becomes all, one is speaking – etymologically – of heresy.
2) You are right to be fearful of relativism, but you must be cautious about FUNDAMENTALISM: there are central and immutable things, but there are doctrines less important and mutable, such as the teaching (“moria”) of the church teaches us. To speak always about certain things can hide the danger of fundamentalism.
3) You cite the bible and the CCC, but you also cite prophecies and private revelations. These things do not regard the faith and cannot be imposed on anyone! Do not cause confusion, neither in the preaching, nor in your head.
4) You are attentive to announce the truth, but in the gospel there does not exist truth without love: a truth without love is perhaps more dangerous than love without truth. If your convictions lead you to judgment toward: the faithful, toward the brothers, the bishops, the pope… ask yourself if you are not by chance one who preaches without love the truth.


Dear Father Joe, no one obliges you to celebrate the Mass at this Parish, but I must instead ask you to “correct the aim” of your preaching, but after everything else to reconcile yourself with the concrete Church in which you live and exercise the ministry, accepting to put also yourself into discussion and to always seek communion. I am willing to listen to you still, to understand better – if your believe – your thought and to hear how you intend to change.


With friendship
+ Bishop Auxiliary

I offer a few comments regarding the reply of the Auxiliary Bishop:


The Auxiliary Bishop wrote:
1) The teaching regarding sin is very important, but it cannot be ALL of the preaching: the Gospel (and the CCC) speak also of joy, of mercy, of charity, of fraternity … to insist always about sin means to preach in an UNFAITHFUL way to revelation and to the magisterium: when a part becomes all, one is speaking – etymologically – of heresy.


My comment:
One sees in the paragraph of the Auxiliary Bishop the same attitude of so many bishops and priests in the Catholic Church today. The Auxiliary Bishop did not enter into the specifics of what I wrote but only accused me in a general way! As I wrote in the letter to His Eminence: the Pastor never said to me: “Father Joe, I believe that this phrase that you said (or wrote) during your homily today is in contrast with a document of the Church”, and then to offer me the reference to a document of the Church or from the CCC. And thus, already for years, the Pastor does not allow me to explain myself or to defend myself with these precious documents of the Church.” The Auxiliary Bishop did the same!


In past centuries, in a certain sense, it was easier to identify “etymologically – of heresy”, that which inhibited the souls to arrive to union with Jesus with Mary in order to arrive to heaven. Because today, Satan, with much patience, has lead us to gently slide into mediocrity, into a couldn't-care-less attitude, into indifference, into nonchalance, into carelessness, into negligence, into sloppiness! And with this sliding comes slowly blindness of the lack of a personal relationship with Jesus which is the only thing that remains after death. We no longer seek the point of view or the criteria of God from Divine Revelation in order to discover our true situation in the light of eternity. Many people today think in this way: “According to me and the people around me, I’m ok!” They do not realize this lack of the point of view of God, and thus, and even worse, they do not care to seek another point of view. There is no motive to seek God, and thus there is no motive to seek to take away or to eliminate the things that prohibit the walk toward to union with the Creator, that is, sins. And thus, today a great number of people are on the broad road, “covered with sand and flowers, full of joy, music and all sorts of pleasures. People walked along it, dancing and enjoying themselves. They reached the end without realizing it. And at the end of the road there was a horrible precipice; that is, the abyss of hell. The souls fell blindly into it; as they walked, so they fell. And their number was so great that it was impossible to count them. And I saw the other road, or rather, a path, for it was narrow and strewn with thorns and rocks; and the people who walked along it had tears in their eyes, and all kinds of suffering befell them. Some fell down upon the rocks, but stood up immediately and went on. At the end of the road there was a magnificent garden filled with all sorts of happiness, and all these souls entered there. At the very first instant they forgot all their sufferings” (Diary of Saint Faustina, no. 153). “Today, I was led by an Angel to the chasms of hell… But I noticed one thing: that most of THE SOULS THERE ARE THOSE WHO DISBELIEVED THAT THERE IS A HELL” (Diary, 741) (http://www.saint-faustina.com/Diary/DMIMS1.shtml). How many bishops today do not believe that hell exists (Father Gabriele Amorth; http://www.speroforum.com/site/article.asp?id=2879; http://www.vaticans.org/index.php?/archives/61-An-interview-with-the-Vaticans-chief-excorcist,-Father-Gabriele.html)?!?


What can one say to the people who believe to be Catholic – lay people, priests and bishops – who are in reality, according to the Biblical tradition, explained in the documents of the Magisterium of the Church, are almost totally spiritually asleep from the point of view of God, but not from the point of view of the world, from the point of view of the cult of man which one believes is the religion today?!? What could Lot say to the citizens of Sodom and Gomorrah (Gen 19) in order to explain the danger and the great chastisement that was about to happen, after many years of slowly sliding into the gravest sins?!? But one must try to communicate the Truth in freedom, as Jesus did and all of the saints, even though the reaction of the great majority of people is hostility, so many times, strong hostility, that is, the crucifixion and the killing of so many martyrs during the centuries. It seems to me that “charity” according to the Auxiliary Bishop, and so many priests and bishops today, is to say what the people want to hear and to not say what the people do not want to hear! Thus, according to this mentality today, one must not speak about what kills the soul, that is, mortal sin, and one must not speak about the existence of hell! What great “charity” is this!?! Are such priests and bishops living for God or for other hidden motives?


When Pope Paul VI issued his prophetic encyclical, “HUMANAE VITAE” (1968), there was an incredible negative reaction not only on the part of the laity who wanted to enjoy the pleasures of sex without any responsibility or openness to life by using artificial birth control, but even on the part of a great number of priests and bishops, even entire Episcopal conferences (e.g., the ‘Winnipeg Statement’ of the Canadian Bishops)! BEFORE 1930 ALL MAINLINE PROTESTANT DENOMINATIONS WERE IN ACCORD WITH THE CATHOLIC CHURCH that the use of artificial birth control was a grave evil and a serious sin. When the Anglican Church changed its stance in 1930 (Lambeth Conference) the other protestants churches quickly followed suit while Pope Pius XI reaffirmed the Church’s constant teaching on this grave evil in his encyclical Casti Cannubii (1930).


In a secularized world there is also the negation of hell on the part of many theologians, justifying everything by saying that God is Merciful, and thus it is impossible to speak of hell as an eternal condition of damnation. All of this produces an effect, the lose of conscience of sin, and thus above all the youth no longer have points of reference; thus they live in sin, they die in sin! Our Lady in the third apparition of Fatima, asked with insistence: “Pray, pray very much and make sacrifices for sinners, because many souls go to hell, because there is no one to make sacrifices for them”. Our Lady showed hell to the three seers. Lucy declared after that vision that they would have died of fright if there had not been a particular grace of God.


IS OUR LADY OF FATIMA CRAZY AND WE ARE ALL INTELLIGENT, MODERN, AND WISE? Our heavenly Mother cries because she is the Mother of everyone and she knows that one second in hell is worse than the most terrible catastrophe on the earth.


In the situation today, in which RELATIVISM, according to Pope Benedict XVI, "is the most profound difficulty of our time", does that which I wrote regarding sin deserve the phrase of the Auxiliary Bishop, “when a part becomes all, one is speaking – etymologically – of heresy”? Today less priests and bishops than ever before speak of the only sickness of the soul, sin, in particular mortal sin, according to the CCC! It seems to me that this phrase of the Auxiliary Bishop would be like saying to a person who is gravely sick in bed to go and play football, be happy and joyful, or to say to not do surgery in order to cure cancer because the operation is too painful. It would be to say to a person who is in a burning house to be “full of joy, music and all sorts of pleasures … dancing and enjoying themselves” (Diary of Saint Faustina; no. 153). It is necessary to first heal the person before wishing joy and to play football! It would be to speak to the sheep “of joy, of mercy, of charity, of fraternity”, while the wolf is giving the sheep drops of poison slowly, the poison of nice lies and empty promises, and the pastor is not interested in knowing about this poison, not even to warn the sheep of this poison. It would be to say that a true pastor who maintains the right priorities, first heaven and very secondarily “brother ass” (as Saint Francis called his body), that this authentic pastor is entering “etymologically into heresy”!!! To me it seems that this phrase puts earthly life at a greater importance than eternal life, to confuse the priorities. The saints always put eternal life first, and thus, their first priority was the health of the soul. Certainly one should try to do as Saint John Bosco did, to first attract the youth in many ways, but if the principle goal to attract the souls is not to help them to draw closer to the Divine Healer, as Bosco did, Jesus in the sacrament of Confession and in the Eucharist, what are we doing, what is our true motive, as priests and catechists? Is this phrase of the Auxiliary Bishop in harmony with the last several popes who told us that the gravest sin today is that there is no more sin; we have lost the sense of sin?!?


"So you, son of man, I have made a watchman for the house of Israel; whenever you hear a word from my mouth, you shall give them warning from me. If I say to the wicked, O wicked man, you shall surely die, and you do not speak to warn the wicked to turn from his way, that wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but his blood I will require at your hand. But if you warn the wicked to turn from his way, and he does not turn from his way; he shall die in his iniquity, but you will have saved your life” (Ezek 33:7-9)


Similar to what happens often in the Church today, the Neocatecumenal Way, in an almost imperceptible way, offers a sense of false security and self-complacency or self-satisfaction in the community, a sense of importance in the community, to feel fulfilled before the community. But this type of cult of man leads rather to spiritually relaxing and to become nonchalant in the essential things, instead of doing as all of the saints in realizing more and more our unworthiness before God, our misery, the greater consciousness of our need of the mercy of God in order to respond ever more to the love of Jesus on the cross in gratitude. It is like the ecclesial movement or the community is something that serves me, but not for serving Him Who gave us everything, God! (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2015/02/the-neocatecumenal-mass.html; in Italian: http://cibo-spir.blogspot.it/2014/01/il-dio-infinito-fra-noi.html).


An indication of this type of false religion is the lack of willingness or desire to want to listen or dialogue with people who indicate that it is not good in this way. They already have what they want from religion or from an ecclesial movement, and they do not want to hear anything else: “Ignorance is bliss”! This spiritual sleepiness in the Church or in an ecclesial movement is more dangerous than outside of the Church because it gives more of a sense of security to be OK spiritually, by the people all around in the community as happens in the cults, when in reality it is rather an exploitation of a religion or of a charism or of an ecclesial movement to serve self instead of serving God. In the world without religion, at least there is not this false security from religion; there is the false security of atheism or of relativism, but not the exploitation of a religion of God to feel OK in laziness or in disguised vain glory. It is very interesting that my experience is that the people who had done less years of formation in the Neocatecumenal Way were more open and more willing to dialogue in order to understand why the popes said to follow faithfully and exactly the liturgical books, and to recognize the lack of trust, on the part of the founders of the Way in the Magisterium, in the Church. That is, after 15 years in the Way, they are less open to listen to the Vicar of Christ! In what direction is the Neocatecumenal Way leading the people?!? Toward the cult of man or toward the cult of God, toward trust in themselves or in the ecclesial movement, or in God, in the authentic representatives of the one Church that Jesus left us here on earth? How many priests in their walk of priesthood did the same back-pedaling?!? For many Catholics today, at all levels, the things of religion exist to serve themselves instead to help them to serve God!


The Servant of God, Archbishop Fulton Sheen, said that the only thing that helped him to get rid of the “noonday devils”, that is, indolence or sluggishness, was a holy hour in church everyday before Our Eucharistic Lord. But a holy hour for those who have slid into the cult of man, is not satisfying to them, they get bored, because the interior motive of their heart is not for Jesus as the first Person in their life. “But now our strength is dried up, and there is nothing at all but this manna to look at.” (Num 11:4-6)


If a Christian does not chase away or overcome these “noonday devils”, he slides into mediocrity, and then he accepts and welcomes compromises, one after the other. Behold the strategy of Satan, with false ecumenism which is reductionism to the lowest common denominator, forfeiting our most precious means of sanctification and the fullness of truth, as Catholics, in the name of “love” and “mercy”!?! By now today, the society has arrived so low that a great number of people believe that the only solution is to offer and welcome more and more compromises, and to put aside those things in which we are not all in agreement, such as the Eucharist, Mary, the documents of the Magisterium of the Church, summarized in the CCC for adults. Instead of climbing up Mount Tabor, Subiaco, Laverna in order to establish contact and union with God as did Moses, Saint Benedict and Saint Francis, one goes down into compromises of false ecumenism, with false mercy, with misguided compassion, with false love. In order to be coherent with the lowering of the bar, we will have to take away the words of the Act of Contrition: “I promise with the help of Thy grace to sin no more and to avoid the near occasion of sin”!?! We will have to change the words of the Our Father: “MY will be done”! When two young people marry each other and pronounce their promises in public, they do not want to hear and it is not acceptable to say or offer these promises with compromises: “I take you as my spouse, as long as things work out for me…”.


And so why is it so acceptable today to believe to have a relationship, union with God, with such relativistic compromises and exceptions, when Jesus offers us the graces necessary to be and remain faithful to Him if we persevere in sincere and humble prayer? For many Christians today, the exceptions have become the rule; but what type of love, what type of commitment is this?!? Even in the Old Testament one knew it was necessary to love God “with ones whole heart…” and no other god (Dt 6:5)!


One does not say in the Act of Contrition: “I will try with the help of Thy grace to sin no more, when it is possible, and to try to avoid, if it is ok with me, the near occasions of sin”! This is the Act of Contrition composed by Satan, his hidden strategy, to slowly lead us not towards total trust in God but towards his nice easy lies and his empty promises, and in the end to his dwelling place for all eternity! Certainly it is more difficult to live the Act of Contrition when the great majority of Catholics have embrace the Act of Contrition of Satan, but God gives more grace in this period more difficult in the history of the world to those who truly pray with true humility.


The Auxiliary Bishop did not indicate any concern of the danger for souls today in the world totally immersed in relativism. When I talked about a house which takes in young men who fell into drugs (which I visited regularly), that for the first time they began to put in that house girls which the police arrested on the streets, the Pastor was only concerned about what the people might think, human respect, but not about the danger to the souls in that house. In that house there are young men who do not succeed in saying no to alcohol nor to drugs, and now they put prostitutes from the street in that house!?! The ones in charge of that house decided to do this and thus I no longer collaborate with a house of destruction; before it was a house of rehabilitation!


The Auxiliary Bishop did not write anything regarding the great concern of Pope John Paul II when he spoke to the bishops of the USA (LA, California, 09-16-1987) of the “GRAVE ERROR” of a type of pick and choose smorgasbord type Catholicism. If there is no sin nor hell, of course one who preaches the whole Gospel is bad, not a nice person, as I wrote!!! It is like parents who must throw out all the rule of the house, otherwise they are accused by the spoiled children of not having “charity”!!!


Another indication of this slowly sliding away from the criteria of salvation according to God is that the recent popes, in the world today, warn us to be on our guard not so much about the lack of applying the “LAW OF GRADUALITY” but rather the danger of the “GRADUALITY OF THE LAW”, which must be refuted in as much as it reduces the value of the law to a mere ideal.


Pope John Paul II wrote:
The Moral Progress of Married People
Married people too are called upon to progress unceasingly in their moral life, with the support of a sincere and active desire to gain ever better knowledge of the values enshrined in and fostered by the law of God. They must also be supported by an upright and generous willingness to embody these values in their concrete decisions. They cannot however look on the law as merely an ideal to be achieved in the future: they must consider it as a command of Christ the Lord to overcome difficulties with constancy. "AND SO WHAT IS KNOWN AS 'THE LAW OF GRADUALNESS' OR STEP-BY-STEP ADVANCE CANNOT BE IDENTIFIED WITH 'GRADUALNESS OF THE LAW,' AS IF THERE WERE DIFFERENT DEGREES OR FORMS OF PRECEPT IN GOD'S LAW FOR DIFFERENT INDIVIDUALS AND SITUATIONS. In God's plan, all husbands and wives are called in marriage to holiness, and this lofty vocation is fulfilled to the extent that the human person is able to respond to God's command with serene confidence in God's grace and in his or her own will."(95) On the same lines, it is part of the Church's pedagogy THAT HUSBANDS AND WIVES SHOULD FIRST OF ALL RECOGNIZE CLEARLY THE TEACHING OF HUMANAE VITAE as indicating the norm for the exercise of their sexuality, and that they should endeavor to establish the conditions necessary for observing that norm. …” (Familiaris Consortio; no. 34 (see also 9); http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/john_paul_ii/apost_exhortations/documents/hf_jp-ii_exh_19811122_familiaris-consortio_en.html).

TO FIGHT IN A BATTLE, IS IT NOT PRUDENT AND NECESSARY TO KNOW NOT ONLY YOUR OWN WEAPONS, TACTICS AND STRATEGY BUT ALSO THE WEAPONS, TACTICS AND STRATEGY OF THE ENEMY? It was recounted to Pope John Paul II that the Vatican's chief exorcist, Father Gabriele Amorth, “knows too many bishops who do not believe in the Devil”. The Pope replied bluntly: “ANYONE WHO DOES NOT BELIEVE IN THE DEVIL DOES NOT BELIEVE IN THE GOSPEL”. When asked “What do you see as Satan’s greatest success?”, Amorth replied: “The fact that he has managed to convince people that he does not exist. He has almost managed it, even within the Church. We have a clergy and an Episcopate who no longer believe in the Devil , in exorcism, in the exceptional evil the Devil can instill, or even in the power that Jesus bestowed to cast out demons. For three centuries the Latin Church – in contrast to the Orthodox Church and the various Protestant professions – has almost totally abandoned the ministry of exorcism. So because they no longer perform exorcisms, or study them, and never having seen them, the clergy no longer believe in them. And they no longer believe in the Devil. We have entire Episcopates trying to counter exorcism. We have countries completely devoid of exorcists, such as Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Spain and Portugal. This is a shameful shortfall.”; (http://www.speroforum.com/site/article.asp?id=2879; http://www.vaticans.org/index.php?/archives/61-An-interview-with-the-Vaticans-chief-excorcist,-Father-Gabriele.html).


One senses in what the Auxiliary Bishop wrote an attitude that almost everyone goes to heaven, except maybe, people like Hitler.


Professor Ralph Martin, in the Seminary of the Sacred Heart (Detroit, MI, USA), clarified a very important teaching of the Second Vatican Council in his book “Will Many Be Saved?”, with the subtitle “What Vatican II actually teaches and Its Implications for the New Evangelization”.
Ralph Martin explains that personal salvation for those who have not heard the Gospel, in particular from Lumen Gentium 16 (http://www.vatican.va/archive/hist_councils/ii_vatican_council/documents/vat-ii_const_19641121_lumen-gentium_en.html):
Those also can attain to salvation who through no fault of their own do not know the Gospel of Christ or His Church, yet sincerely seek God and moved by grace strive by their deeds to do His will as it is known to them through the dictates of conscience.”
A great number of Catholics today have only an idea of this phrase but do not want to know, or have not been taught by the priests and bishops, the rest of section 16 of Lumen Gentium, which explains that it is not any kind of believing in God.
But often men, deceived by the Evil One, have become vain in their reasonings and have exchanged the truth of God for a lie, serving the creature rather than the Creator (cf. Rom 1:21,25). Or some there are who, living and dying in this world without God, are exposed to final despair. Wherefore to promote the glory of God and procure the salvation of all of these, and mindful of the command of the Lord, "Preach the Gospel to every creature" (Mk 16:15) the Church fosters the missions with care and attention” (Lumen Gentium 16).


This means you need to have a supernatural faith and a supernatural charity. This means that there has to be a personal response to the light that God is giving that involves a surrender to His Person and a surrender to His authority and a recognition of His Lordship in a way without even knowing His name. And that has to resolve itself in some kind of a change of behavior where you are saying yes and lives supernatural charity being born in his life, with the graces of God. So it is not just any kind of metaphysical belief in God or any kind of declaration of yourself as a good person. There is actually some genuine personal response to God’s light that involves a surrender to Him.


People hear that it is possible to be saved without hearing the Gospel. Then a funny thing happens. They say, I am glad to hear that, I do not have to worry about people anymore. So they jump from the possibility to the presumed probability of almost universal certainty. There is always the example, probably people like Hitler do not make it, that type of thing. Even the most famous theologians who write on this subject do this. They just pay attention to those sentences that we just read and they jump from possibility to probability, and they completely ignore the last three sentences. These last three sentences speak about all those people who theoretically have the possibility of saying yes to the grace of God without hearing the Gospel but do not. And very often, the council is telling us, that this responding to the grace of God does not happen based on what Scripture reveals to us about the human condition. The verse of the Gospel of Mark, “He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned” (Mk 16:16), is talking about the outcome of our response to the Lord having consequences! The teaching of the Council is teaching in harmony with Sacred Scripture and the Church, and even though it is possible for someone to be saved without hearing the Gospel, very often that does not happen. We really need to help people to encounter Jesus Christ, and to discover the fullness of the means of sanctification and of the truth in the Catholic Church!


Among many theologians today, as one sees in the words of the Auxiliary Bishop, there is not the desire to discover the criteria of salvation according to God but according to man, and man always wants a criteria of salvation as easy as possible. If a person seeks to explain that the Ten Commandments do not change, that the explanation of the Holy Spirit by way of the Magisterium of the Church during the centuries does not change, that you cannot lower the bar of salvation according to each period of the world, this person is accused of entering “etymologically into heresy”! In the cult of man one trusts man; in the cult of God one trusts God even if the criteria of salvation is high and even seems sometimes impossible for us mere humans. Athletes do not lower the bar; why is it that so many Christians today do not want to be true and authentic spiritual athletes?!?


When the disciples were “amazed” and even “exceedingly astonished”, Christ did not offer false and empty and destructive compromises as do many religious leaders in the Church today in order to “to make the people happy”, to make the incredulous “Christians” happy, but rather He said: “With men it is impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God” (Mk 10:23-27). If a person trusts in God in true humility, God operates in that person and all is possible. Instead if a person trusts in himself, it then becomes necessary to lower the bar of the criteria of salvation, it becomes necessary to lower the bare of the criteria of the definition of every type of sin, to the level of man, because God does not act in the proud who trust in themselves, in their intelligence and in their strength! To enter the kingdom of God, one must do the impossible from the point of view of man, otherwise we remain always attached to ourselves, not to God!!! How many times God led the Israelites to a point that the Israelites complained against Moses and against God because things did not go as they wanted; God did this in order to offer many opportunities to the Israelites to progress toward more trust in and less trust in themselves?!? Even Moses at Meribah lacked total trust in God When Moses “struck the rock with his rod twice” (Nm 20:11)! “And the Lord said to Moses and Aaron, “Because you did not believe in me, to sanctify me in the eyes of the people of Israel, therefore you shall not bring this assembly into the land which I have given them” (Nm 20:12)! God did not lower the bar when the Israelites continuously grumbled, but to help them to go toward more trust in God, not less, toward eternal salvation, “the Lord sent fiery serpents among the people…” (Nm 21:6). God offers us also “fiery serpents” on a pole (Nm 21:8) for our true healing, for the possibility of salvation for those of good will. “And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all men to myself” (Jn 12:32). “Hence if anyone wants to know how this unhappy situation can be overcome, Christians will tell him that all human activity, constantly imperiled by man's pride and deranged self-love, must be purified and perfected by the power of Christ's cross and resurrection” (Gaudium es Spes, no. 37).


The Vatican's chief exorcist, Father Gabriele Amorth, when asked “What do you see as SATAN’S GREATEST SUCCESS?”, Amorth replied: “The fact that he has managed to convince people that he does not exist. He has almost managed it, even within the Church. We have a clergy and an Episcopate who no longer believe in the Devil , in exorcism, in the exceptional evil the Devil can instill, or even in the power that Jesus bestowed to cast out demons…” (http://www.speroforum.com/site/article.asp?id=2879; http://www.vaticans.org/index.php?/archives/61-An-interview-with-the-Vaticans-chief-excorcist,-Father-Gabriele.html).


But more importantly, even though it is possible to be saved without hearing about Jesus Christ, if one is truly in love with Jesus, and realizes the incredible gift of the Eucharist, one will not hesitate to evangelize non Catholics. This is precisely what Bruce Fingerhut, a Jewish Convert, said on Ewtn, Journey Home (2008). He said that Jews do not like to evangelize; but Christians should evangelize Jews because they want to offer them the greatest treasure, Jesus Christ; because they want to offer the fullness of what God has to offer us in Jesus Christ and in His body, the Church, that He left us here on earth!


This is why the prince of the world, Satan, offers us false “love”, FALSE “mercy”, false “ecumenism”, in order to not lead us to trust in God but in ourselves! It is not by chance that precisely in this period of the world God has offered us in a very particular way the Divine Mercy by way of Saint Faustina! But God offers TRUE MERCY, though, not false mercy without reference to the definition of sin according to God, faithfully and infallibly explained by the Magisterium of the Church, summarized in the Catechism of the Catholic Church for adults!


Athletes are in love with their sport and thus want to raise more and more the bar, not lower the bar in the competitions. The saints are in love with Jesus, not in themselves, and thus want to more and more share in the sufferings of Jesus and to console the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.


Suffering is the greatest treasure on earth; it purifies the soul. In suffering we learn who is our true friend. True love is measured by the thermometer of suffering…” (Diary, 342). St. Therese of the Child Jesus on her death bed with great sufferings, and even the dark night of the spirit, said: “I have reached the point of not being able to suffer anymore because all suffering is sweet to me.”


Saint Francis of Assisi and Padre Pio and Saint Veronica Giuliani were happy and very grateful to God for the gift of the stigmata, which is very painful!


The cult of man leads us to perpetuate to be more and more in love with ourselves, while the cult of God leads us to become more and more in love with God. “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit. He who loves his life loses it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it for eternal life” (Jn 12:24-25).


HOW DIFFICULT IT IS TO EXPLAIN and make it understood to people who have let themselves slide into mediocrity, to lower the bar of the criteria of salvation and of sin, their true situation according to the Truth, that is, according to God, not according to the atmosphere of relativism which totally surrounds us today! Relativism is like acid rain, which destroys everything, and we do not realize how far we have slid into relativism without a lot of sincere prayer, in true humility, with the help of Our Eucharistic Lord and Mary. Relativism is like the air that we breath. Truly it is worse today precisely in the Church than in the times of the Tower of Babel in the Old Testament! Often I meet people with an attitude of superiority, with a smile of haughtiness, as if I am one of those poor ones who remained behind in the old doctrine, antiquated, and not with those who believe they are full of intelligence and wisdom of the modern world!?!


If a priest in a zone explains the reality from the point of view of the Catechism of the Catholic Church for adults and the other 20 priests in the zone offer only the part of the Gospel that is easy, remaining in silence about the rest of the Gospel, the people, who will they follow? They will follow the easier way, and even criticize and treat badly the priest who remained faithful to the teachings of the Magisterium of the Church! People say to me: “I do not believe that it is a grave sin do have sex outside of marriage.” I reply to them: “According to who: according to you or according to God”? People today are so immersed in the poison of relativism that they do not realize the difference between deciding things according to their own heads or according to God; in effect, there is no difference for almost everyone today. The danger is very great, but by now, for people who pray the Our Father with the attitude, “My will be done”, the danger for them is totally ridiculous, like something banal, and they criticize more and more those who admonish them with their example of life and of prayer, who are always “prepared to make a defense to any one who calls you to account for the hope that is in you” (1Pt 3:15). The problem is that in the real heaven, there is room for only one God, not two; all those in hell believed “the father of lies” (Jn 8:44), to believe to be gods and to decide the “truth” according to their own heads (Gen 3:4-5). Saint Michael says to us also today that which he said to Lucifer, who became Satan, with his own name: “Who is like unto God?”! Blind idiots in pride!




The Auxiliary Bishop wrote:
“… when a part becomes all, one is speaking – etymologically – of heresy.”


It is interesting how the Auxiliary Bishop makes this distinction in accusing me of making a part all, and yet he does not make the very important distinction of maintaining the proper hierarchy of values, as the Church as always done. The Auxiliary Bishop makes distinctions when it serves what he wants, “to make happy the people” in this short life, but does not mention, and ignores totally, other important distinctions which detracts or nullify what he wants.


Is not the first priority to get rid of sin, and then we can have true joy? Is the “joy” that the Auxiliary Bishop is referring to an earthly joy that does not last, or is he referring to supernatural joy? Mary had true joy at the foot of the cross because she knew she was doing the will of God. Is the “mercy” that the Auxiliary Bishop is referring to a mercy that is linked to true contrition and firm amendment of life? Is the “charity” that the Auxiliary Bishop is referring to a charity that is rooted first of all in the One Who gives us life and holds us continually in existence? Is the “fraternity” that the Auxiliary Bishop is referring to a humanistic fraternity or a fraternity in which Jesus is at the very center of this fraternity not just as our elder Brother but above all is our God before Whom the angels adore prostrate?


But one can experience true joy only if we take away our sins according to the criteria of God of what is a sin, non according to our sentiments, or according to the TV, or the world or the “pop culture”. That is, according to the teachings of the Catholic Church, summarized in the Catechism of the Catholic Church for adults!


As I wrote to his Eminence:
If the priests do not help the people to identify the sickness of the soul, the people do not have anything to confess, and thus they have no need of Jesus the Redeemer, who came for sinners, not for the just who believe to have no sins. In this way the Redemption is nullified for these people because they do not believe to have need of a Savior.”
But if very few pastors in the Catholic Church explain what a sin is and the most common mortal sins today, very few go to confession!


As we learned in our theological studies, ONE MUST MAINTAIN BALANCE AND HARMONY AMONG THE TRUTHS OF GOD. To maintain order in a community or in a society, the strong essential elements must be kept in proper balance and proper priority and influence for each element, otherwise one element becomes too strong and dominants and suppresses or even destroys the other elements which are vital to the community or to the society. This indispensable need of proper balance is even more needed in regards to the powerful and essential elements of truth which make up the whole of divine revelation for the proper functioning of the spiritual realm of each person and of each community. It is impossible to separate the spiritual realm from the material realm just as it is impossible to separate the body from the soul or from the psychic or from the feelings of the person. The person is made up of body and soul which cannot be separated here on earth. So too, to ignore the proper balance and equilibrium of truths, each with its own proper priority and importance in relationship to the other truths, is to cause great negative consequences not only in the spiritual realm but also in the material realm as well. Here is where Satan plays his hidden cards! The Church has always maintained the proper hierarchy of values. Not all truths or priorities have the same importance or weight; this hierarchy of values, of truths, must be respected so as to maintain the well-functioning of each person and of each community, just as in a factory or in the motor of a car or even in the natural environment in nature.


"INTRINSIC EVIL": it is not licit to do evil that good may come of it (cf. Rom 3:8). One must therefore reject the thesis, characteristic of teleological and proportionalist theories,…” (Veritatis Splendor, no. 79). “As is evident, in the question of the morality of human acts, and in particular THE QUESTION OF WHETHER THERE EXIST INTRINSICALLY EVIL ACTS, we find ourselves faced with the question of man himself, of his truth and of the moral consequences flowing from that truth. By acknowledging and teaching THE EXISTENCE OF INTRINSIC EVIL in given human acts, the Church remains faithful to the integral truth about man; she thus respects and promotes man in his dignity and vocation. Consequently, she must reject the theories set forth above, which contradict this truth” (Veritatis Splendor, no. 83; http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/john_paul_ii/encyclicals/documents/hf_jp-ii_enc_06081993_veritatis-splendor_en.html).


Explicit treatment of the problem was given in this Congregation's "Declaration on Certain Questions Concerning Sexual Ethics" of December 29, 1975. That document stressed the duty of trying to understand the homosexual condition and noted that culpability for homosexual acts should only be judged with prudence. At the same time the Congregation took note of the distinction commonly drawn between the homosexual condition or tendency and individual homosexual actions. These were described as deprived of their essential and indispensable finality, as being "intrinsically disordered", and able in no case to be approved of (cf. n. 8, parag. 4).” (No. 3; Congregation For The Doctrine Of The Faith; Letter To the Bishops of the Catholic Church: On the Pastoral Care of Homosexual Persons; 1 October 1986; Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, Prefect).


Pope Benedict explained to us the great IMPORTANCE OF DISTINGUISHING between the issues that are negotiable and the issues that are not negotiable, in particular referring to considering which political candidate is more likely to promote the culture of life or the culture of death.


ABORTION IS NOT NEGOTIABLE; ABORTION IS MURDER! From the moment of conception God creates and unites an immortal soul to the embryo! But critics, including an important priest in my diocese, accuse those who hold to what Pope Benedict and many other popes have exhorted, in maintaining the proper hierarchy of values, guilty of causing an ecclesial discipline to become an ecclesial bureaucracy, to be bigots by remaining faithful to the guidance of the Church when the protestant brothers and others are not happy, even though these ecclesiastical exhortations are for the good of Catholics and as well as for the good of non-Catholics. Is this not gently sliding or pushing and manipulating, in a clever disguised way, into compromise as Our Lady of Akita, Japan warned us would happen: “the Church will be full of those who accept compromise …”


If one emphasises mercy without talking about in the same talk and in the same context, “go and sin no more”, as Jesus did in the Gospels (Jn 5:14; 8:11), there is a great tendency to take the easy way of not seeking to change ones life with the help of God, and to believe and say: “I’m OK!”; I answer very numerous people in relativism: “You are Ok, according to Who?!?”


As far as the Catholic Church is concerned, the principal focus of her interventions in the public arena is the protection and promotion of the dignity of the person, and she is thereby consciously drawing particular attention to PRINCIPLES WHICH ARE NOT NEGOTIABLE. Among these the following emerge clearly today:…” (Address of His Holiness Benedict XVI to the Members of the European People's Party (March 30, 2006; http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/benedict_xvi/speeches/2006/march/documents/hf_ben-xvi_spe_20060330_eu-parliamentarians_en.html).


Democracy must be based on the true and SOLID FOUNDATION OF NON-NEGOTIABLE ETHICAL PRINCIPLES, which are the underpinning of life in society” (Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Doctrinal Note on some questions regarding the Participation of Catholics in Political Life, November 24, 2002; http://www.vatican.va/roman_curia/congregations/cfaith/documents/rc_con_cfaith_doc_20021124_politica_en.html).


What is conveyed to the public when a very important Catholic religious leader says: “I never understood the term non-negotiable values”, without any other explanation to put this statement into the proper context according to the teaching of the Magisterium of the Church?!? What great damage is done by Pastors who do not live their beautiful vocation from God because they do not help the sheep, entrusted to them, to understand and to be on their guard for the very devastating hidden deceptions of the wolf???


It is interesting in the reply of the Auxiliary Bishop, he wrote: “Rev. Father Joseph Dwight - Parish Vicar of Lisciano Niccone; P.C.; Father Pastor; Pastor of the City”; in order to underline that Father Joe is a parish vicar (not the same zone as Lisciano Niccone) and Father Pastor is Pastor of a city. This indicates, at least indirectly, THAT THE TRUTH IS DECIDED, OR EVEN ESTABLISHED, BY THE ONE WHO HAS MORE AUTHORITY!!! I always thought that God has more authority and that the authentic voice of God on the earth is the Magisterium of the Church. Perhaps I must return to the seminary in order to learn the new theology, which indicates that the ones in charge in the Church are the authors of truth, not the handmaid of the Truth as we learned in the “old documents” of the Church, which many believe today are antiquated and outdated!


For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written, "I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and the cleverness of the clever I will thwart" (Is 29,14; Sal 33,10). Where is the wise man? Where is the scribe (Is 33,18; 19,12)? Where is the debater of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since, in the wisdom of God, the world did not know God through wisdom, it pleased God through the folly of what we preach to save those who believe. For Jews demand signs and Greeks seek wisdom, but we preach Christ crucified, a stumbling block to Jews and folly to Gentiles, but to those who are called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than men, and the weakness of God is stronger than men” (1Cor 1:18-25).


The Auxiliary Bishop wrote:
I am sorry for the roughness that I used with you yesterday, but in your writing there is truly a harsh judgment against Father Pastor…”
How many times was Jesus “harsh”?!? “Woe to you doctors of the law…” (Lk 11:42-54). Jesus even said to the first pope of the Church:
Get behind me, Satan! You are a hindrance to me; for you are not on the side of God, but of men” (Mt 16:23), that is “to make happy the people”!


The Auxiliary Bishop wrote:
“… according to a numerous repetition of “to make the people happy”…”
A holy woman, Dorothy Day, said: “Christ came to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.”
I should hope that you would not be counted among their number. Their homes are peaceful and complacent. They live in security and never feel the touch of the Lord’s rod. They pass their days in plenty and in the end go straight to hell.” (Saint Raymund of Penyafort, breviary, January 7).


THE PROPHETS OF THE OLD TESTAMENT said to the people that if they continue in their ways to not obey the laws of God, they destroy themselves! The Jews killed almost all the prophets, and in the end they killed the greatest Prophet, the Son of God, Jesus Christ! Perhaps the prophets and Jesus Christ did not know how to attract the people in the right way!?!?! ETERNITY IS LONG!


The Pastor of this city yells at me if I agitate the people; the saints cried out against sin for the good of the people!


The Auxiliary Bishop wrote:
2) You are right to be fearful of relativism, but you must be cautious about FUNDAMENTALISM: there are central and immutable things, but there are doctrines less important and mutable, such as the teaching (“moria”) of the church teaches us. To speak always about certain things can hide the danger of fundamentalism.


Am I supposed to trust the Auxiliary Bishop or Pope Benedict who I cited already in the letter to His Eminence:
Cardinal Ratzinger synthesized this situation of rationalism and subjectivism in the Church in his homily at the Mass preceding the conclave that quickly elected him Pope Benedict XVI: “Today, having a clear faith based on the creed of the church is often labeled as FUNDAMENTALISM. Whereas relativism, that is, letting oneself be "tossed here and there, carried about by every wind of doctrine", seems the only attitude that can cope with modern times. We are building a dictatorship of relativism that does not recognize anything as definitive and whose ultimate goal consists solely of one's own ego and desires.” (http://www.vatican.va/gpII/documents/homily-pro-eligendo-pontifice_20050418_en.html; http://www.ignatiusinsight.com/features2005/colson_relativism_may05.asp).


What does it mean to be “labelled as fundamentalism” according to the Auxiliary Bishop and according to Pope Benedict?!? Here the difference is incredible!


It seems to me that the Auxiliary Bishop creates a new hidden Sanhedrin, a Sanhedrin of hidden and dictatorial authority (cf. Acts 5:28). The apostles of the end times will be forbidden in an underhanded but firm way, to speak about some truths of the Faith since they are not in conformity with the modern-day mentality. As the future Pope Benedict XVI said: “We are building a dictatorship of relativism…”.


I believe one can apply certain verses of Sacred Scripture today more than ever:
Woe to those who call evil good and good evil” (Is 5:20).
"God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: that they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness." (2Thess 2:11-12).
I heard, but I did not understand. Then I said, “O my lord, what shall be the issue of these things?” He said, “Go your way, Daniel, for the words are shut up and sealed until the time of the end. Many shall purify themselves, and make themselves white, and be refined; but the wicked shall do wickedly; and none of the wicked shall understand; but those who are wise shall understand.” (Dan 12:8-10).


The Auxiliary Bishop wrote:
“…but there are doctrines less important and mutable”. BEHOLD THE TRUE AND DEVASTATING HERESY! Church discipline is mutable, but not the doctrine! The Auxiliary Bishop does not know this, as so many other bishops and cardinals in the Church today!?!


THE FUNDAMENTAL BATTLE OF ALL TIMES is who establishes the truth, God or the world, God or Satan, God or each person? This battle will increase even more in the next few years before the second coming or Jesus Christ. Lucifer said, I am God, I decide the Truth, and Saint Michael the Archangel replied with his name: “Who is like unto God?” Original Sin was the same deception: “But the serpent said to the woman, "You will not die. For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil".” Many modern philosophers led us into the “COPERNICAN REVOLUTION” of not seeking anymore reality and the truth outside of ourselves by way of our five senses but inside of ourselves, as if each one of us “will be like God”. “Abandoning the investigation of being, modern philosophical research has concentrated instead upon human knowing. …” (No. 5; Encyclical Letter: Fides et Ratio; John Paul II; 09-14-1998). In this fierce and underhanded battle, it is very important to be “wise as serpents” and not just “innocent as doves” (Mt 10:16)!


THOMAS AQUINAS TELLS US: “RARELY AFFIRM, SELDOM DENY, ALWAYS DISTINGUISH.” Few Catholics today distinguish the difference between changing Church discipline and changing Church doctrines which come from God Who is the immutable and absolute Truth, and thus can never be changed. And still more, a great number of so-called Catholics today do not distinguish between deepening and expressing better in human language the Absolute Truth which cannot changed, with changing the Absolute Truth (Modernism, etc.)! The Church is like the waiter but God is the Cook; the waiter must not change the meal prepared by the divine Cook but must deliver the Truth, as God has revealed it, to the clients, to the faithful. (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2014/06/who-decides-truth.html).


Cardinal Burke said:
Pastoral practice properly understood, serves to protect the teaching of the Church and seeks to communicate it. It is not the function of pastoral practice to determine what truth is. Pastoral practice is at the service of the magisterial doctrine of the Church. Pastoral practice ought to be simply the application and effective communication of the sacred doctrine of the Church.”
There can’t be in the church a discipline which is not at the service of doctrine,” Cardinal Raymond Burke, a former archbishop of St. Louis who now heads the Vatican’s court system, told reporters on the eve of the synod. Burke, a canon lawyer and a leader of the camp opposing changes, said the reformers were saying: “Oh, we’re not questioning the indissolubility of marriage at all. We’re just going to make it easy for people to receive a declaration of nullity of marriage so that they can receive the sacraments.” But that, Burke said, “is a very deceptive line of argument which I’ve been hearing more now in this whole debate.”






The Auxiliary Bishop wrote:
3) You cite the bible and the CCC, but you also cite prophecies and private revelations. These things do not regard the faith and cannot be imposed on anyone! Do not cause confusion, neither in the preaching, nor in your head.”


Regarding private revelations, Saint Thomas tells usat all times there have not been lacking persons having the spirit of prophecy, not indeed for the declaration of any new doctrine of faith, but for the direction of human acts” (Summas Theologica II –II q174 a6 reply 3; see also Amos 3:7).


Our Lady revealed to Father Stefano Gobbi (02-09-1985): “Darkness, with A THICK, COLD FOG, has entered the Church, obscuring it in the splendor of its truth. For this reason, every day, my word is forming you to the spirit of wisdom, that you may always see, in the light, the truth which my Son has taught you and proclaim it with courage to all in its integrity.”


It seems to me that this “FOG” obscures above all the light of the Truth. The saints tell us to pass as much time as possible kneeling before the incarnate Truth, the divine Prisoner, in the tabernacle, with the help of the “Seat of Wisdom”, Mary. Otherwise the words and the programs of a pastor in a parish will be empty, even though for a few months or a few years, it might seem that there are fruits, like fire works or straw that burns, but after, these fruits will not last if the pastor does not make the “First Announcement” of the Gospel to himself. Behold the activism which leads us to pray always less and to trust more and more ourselves! Visit in Italian “A Servizio di Tutti” (http://cibo-spir.blogspot.it/2014/08/a-servizio-di-tutti.html); “A Damned Priest Warns About Hell” (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2013/12/damned-priest.html).


Behold why Jesus calls those hypocrites who do not look at the signs of the times (Lk 12:56; Mt 16:3; 24:51), who do not seek to discover these things, the real situation in the world and in the Church from the point of view of God, but go instead with the current of the secular world, and say “I’m OK”. The inhabitants of Sodom and Gomorrah had no idea that that they were about to be annihilated (Gen 19). Like today, many governments promote the principle sin of Sodom, homosexuality. Today the blindness of egoism is more developed, to see everything only from our point of view, which is called “relativism”, the cult of man, not the cult of God.


These private revelations are so important that Satan seeks in every way to diminish their divulgation, influence and effect. In 1882, Christ revealed to the stigmatist, Marie Julie Jahenny of La Fraudais, France that: "In the last days, a seemingly unlimited amount of FALSE REVELATIONS will arise from hell like a swarm of flies; a last attempt of Satan to choke and to destroy the efficacy of the TRUE REVELATIONS by false ones." These revelations to Marie Julie indicate that these revelations are important enough for Satan to try to diminish their effectiveness seeking to keep us far away from true private revelations by offering false ones. But this also indicates that there are many false revelations and thus one must be wise and prudent especially in regards to recent revelations in which the proper Church authorities have not made any pronouncement yet.


St. John also tells us: “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are of God: for many false prophets have gone out into the world” (1Jn 4:1). Saint Paul tells us: “Do not quench the Spirit, do not despise prophesying, but test everything; hold fast what is good” (1Thess 5:19-21).


Here is a directive of the Grand Master of the Freemason which was taught to many Catholic university students and to many seminarians:
26. Use committees of lay people and priests weak in faith who might condemn and reprehend without difficulty every apparition of Mary and apparent miracle especially of the Archangel St. Michael. Make sure that nothing of this, in no measure, will receive approval according to Vatican II. Call it disobedience to authority if anyone obeys the Revelations or even if someone reflects on them. Indicate the Seers as disobedient against Ecclesiastical Authority. Bring down their good name in the mud, so that no one will hold in consideration their Message.” (“The Masonic Plan For The Destruction Of The Catholic Church”; http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2013/11/masonic-plan.html).


There are many Catholics and Catholic groups and blog moderators on the internet who put themselves in the place of judging and interpreting the licitness of reading, promoting or going to apparitions sites not yet approved. THEY PUT THEMSELVES IN THE PLACE OF THE LOCAL ORDINARY OR OF THE POPE HIMSELF. Many like to pontificate, instead of having the humility to say: I do not know; we must wait with patience to see if the fruits are good or bad! They often interpret in their own rigorous way the decree of the “Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine and the Faith”, published in the "Official Acts of the Holy See" (A.A.S.) 58/16, dated December 29, 1966. Other critical Catholics want to accuse those who read and promote these messages from these apparitions of Our Lady (or also, for example the testimony of Gloria Polo) as being motivated only by curiosity and pride (who is really prideful here?) in seeking to know that which is not for us to know. But if one goes even to this extreme one-sided interpretation and judgment, then why are the number of apparitions of Our Lady increasing in our day as Cardinal Ratzinger pointed out in "The Ratzinger Report" (1985)? Why did Jesus say: “Be wise as serpents” and not just “innocent as doves” (Mt 10:16)? Do these critical “serpents” presume to know more than the Mother of God about what is needed today? According to these “intelligent” people (Mt 11:25; Lk 10:21), can there not be another possible motive to read and to promote the messages of Our Lady in our very particular times in which people need a particular help from heaven just as God gave by way of the prophets and judges in the Old Testament? The Church encourages us to read the whole Bible, also the more difficult books such as the Book of Revelation, Daniel, Ezekiel, Matthew 24, Luke 21, Mark 13, etc.? It is amazing how many people choose to close their eyes and ears to the signs of our times! Jesus calls these people “HYPOCRITES”! (Lk 12:56; Mt 16:3). It is interesting how many people choose to close their eyes and ears to the signs of our times! Jesus called these people “hypocrites” (Lk 12:56; Mt 16:3; 24:51).


GOD OR HIS MOTHER DO NOT NEED PERMISSION from a bishop or a priest or a Catholic group or a blog moderator on the Internet to appear or to give private revelations. I think that very few of the seventy thousand people who went to Fatima on October 13, 1917 asked permission from their respective bishops or priests before going to Fatima that day, and yet they were rewarded with the great miracle of the sun. I also believe that as we approach this period of “great tribulation” (Mt 24), God in His love for us, like a loving mother, will give even more help, encouragement and words to help all to prepare so as to take advantage of this period of great trial and suffering, and in particular to give us a guide in this “thick, cold fog” if confusion even in the Catholic Church, above all in the Catholic Church! In this way God will offer one last help to those who might be willing to convert and put God in the first place and priority in their lives rather than themselves or so many other things or persons.


Pope John Paul II went to Fatima three times! Pope Benedict one time. But if one believes like these critics, then why are the Marian apparitions multiplying as a sign of our times as Cardinal Ratzinger indicated in the book “Report on the Faith” (1985)?


Why did Pope Benedict XVI in his homily, at Esplanade of the Shrine of Our Lady of Fatima; before 500,000 people (13 May 2010), say:
WE WOULD BE MISTAKEN TO THINK THAT FATIMA’S PROPHETIC MISSION IS COMPLETE. …
I think my Auxiliary Bishop should tell Pope Benedict and Pope John Paul II the same thing he wrote to me!
“3) You cite the bible and the CCC, but you also cite prophecies and private revelations. These things do not regard the faith and cannot be imposed on anyone! Do not cause confusion, neither in the preaching, nor in your head.”


The Auxiliary Bishop wrote:
4) You are attentive to announce the truth, but in the gospel there does not exist truth without love: a truth without love is perhaps more dangerous than love without truth. If your convictions lead you to judgment toward: the faithful, toward the brothers, the bishops, the pope… ask yourself if you are not by chance one who preaches without love the truth.


Is not the first priority of the Second Person of the Blessed to come here to earth to free us from the slavery of sin? Are not the first words of the Savior: “Repent” (Mk 1:15)? Two thousand years ago the Jews wanted a Messiah Who would liberate the people from the Romans. Today a great many in the Catholic Church want a Messiah, a religion, which will liberate us from guilt complexes, and from the possibility of a punishment after death. And how many priests and bishops seek to “to make the people happy”!?!


Speaking of “to make the people happy”, when I protested that a bar owner put a poster (about 100x70 cm) of a completely naked woman outside the bar entrance of his bar in public view, I was sad because the Pastor of this city, who was present, just smiled and laughed at the inappropriate jokes so as to be in agreement with everyone as his way of treating others in a nice way and not being in disagreement with anyone! (http://wordbelife.blogspot.it/2013/04/james-59.html).


What is more important here, “to make the people happy” or to make Jesus happy? But is not what makes Jesus happy that which is best for each of us? Did God give us the 10 Commandments and all of Divine Revelation to torture us or for our true good and wellbeing?!?


As I wrote in my letter to His Eminence:
But if you put the first commandment of love of God after the second to love ones neighbor, in the end everything falls apart, you loose everything. This is precisely the subtle and underhanded strategy of Satan. It is very interesting how many times one finds the FALSE “LOVE” used in the powerful strategy of the 33 directives of the Grand Master of the Freemasons to the Catholic Masonic bishops of the destruction of the Catholic Church! The word “love” APPEARS 11 TIMES in these 33 directives! “Satan disguises himself as an angel of light” (2Cor 11:14). Visit: “The Masonic Plan For The Destruction Of The Catholic Church” (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2013/11/masonic-plan.html); visit also my article in Italian: “A Servizio di Tutti” (http://cibo-spir.blogspot.it/2014/08/a-servizio-di-tutti.html).


I am amazed how people succeed today in overturning the hierarchy of values in order to justify false love which is then justified with nice words by after there is great harm!


Only what is true can ultimately be pastoral. The neglect of the Church's position prevents homosexual men and women from receiving the care they need and deserve.” (No. 15; Congregation For The Doctrine Of The Faith; Letter To the Bishops of the Catholic Church: On the Pastoral Care of Homosexual Persons; 1 October 1986; Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, Prefect; http://www.vatican.va/roman_curia/congregations/cfaith/documents/rc_con_cfaith_doc_19861001_homosexual-persons_en.html).


Assuredly, the word of truth can be painful and uncomfortable. But it is the way to holiness, to peace, and to inner freedom,” said Pope Benedict in 1998. “A PASTORAL APPROACH WHICH TRULY WANTS TO HELP THE PEOPLE CONCERNED MUST ALWAYS BE GROUNDED IN THE TRUTH,” because “in the end, only the truth can be pastoral,” he wrote, quoting the Gospel promise of Christ that “you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.”
Throughout his 1998 work, Pope Benedict—who was Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith at the time—explained that the recent documents of the Church on such matters “bring together the demands of truth with those of love in a very balanced way.” So while at times in the past “love shone forth too little in the explanation of the truth,” so today, there is a great danger that “in the name of love, truth is either to be silenced or compromised.” (http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/vatican-paper-refutes-critics-of-divorce-and-remarriage-teaching/).


The Auxiliary Bishop accused my of the lack of offering the truth without charity! IT IS TOTALLY REVERSED! To not take care of the souls is the greatest lack of charity! Pastoral care detached from the truth is not love. See: “Who Decides The Truth?” (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2014/06/who-decides-truth.html). For a great number of people today, this short life is the only thing important; eternity does not count at all!


Is not one of the most fundamental tasks of each bishop to maintain apostolicity, the truth transmitted from the apostles? Instead today how many bishops do as so many judges in courts of law who use “positivism”?
Positivism” sounds like something nice and reasonable, to adapt the laws for our new times and needs. But the incredible deception is that the elected government officials and the appointed judges apply positivism individually like little dictators without letting the citizens vote on changing the laws for our new times and needs. Our founding fathers, having suffered under tyrannical governments and having seen the folly of the French Revolution, knew very well that the best constitution in the world will crumble if the citizens loose their faith and morals.


Today, we live in obscure times, because in all kinds of ways an attempt is being made to reach a compromise between God and Satan, between good and evil, between the spirit of Jesus and the spirit of the world. Many are running the danger of becoming victims of this general confusion, and even in the Church a false spirit, which is not that of Jesus the Son of God, is seeking to spread itself about. Like a cloud of invisible poison gas, a spirit which jumbles the things of God with those of the world is expanding and succeeding in depriving the word of God of its vigor and in depoi8ling the announcement of the Gospel of its force!


FREEDOM negates and destroys itself, and becomes a factor leading to the destruction of others, when it no longer recognizes and respects its ESSENTIAL LINK WITH THE TRUTH. When freedom, out of a desire to emancipate itself from all forms of tradition and authority, shuts out even the most obvious evidence of an objective and universal truth, which is the foundation of personal and social life, then the person ends up by no longer taking as the sole and indisputable point of reference for his own choices the truth about good and evil, but only his subjective and changeable opinion or, indeed, his selfish interest and whims.” (No. 19; EVANGELIUM VITAE; To the Bishops, Priests and Deacons, Men and Women religious, lay Faithful, and all People of Good Will, on the Value and Inviolability of Human Life; http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/john_paul_ii/encyclicals/documents/hf_jp-ii_enc_25031995_evangelium-vitae_en.html).


As I wrote in my letter to His Eminence:
Woe to you, when all men speak well of you” (Lk 6:26). “How can you believe, who receive glory from one another and do not seek the glory that comes from the only God?” (Jn 5:44; Gal 1:10).


The Auxiliary Bishop wrote:
“If your convictions lead you to judgment toward: the faithful, toward the brothers, the bishops, the pope… ask yourself if you are not by chance one who preaches without love the truth.”


I wonder if the Auxiliary Bishop realizes, or at least remembers, that the Church, and thus the leaders of the Church, is the handmaid of the Truth and not the Author of the Truth?!? Today more than ever, there is lacking the Truth which makes us free (Jn 8:32), which offers us true love. That is, what is lacking today is true “love” united to the Truth, as the last several popes have explained in their encyclicals! A great number of religious leaders have sacrifices eternity on the altar of human respect!


We read often in the liturgy after Easter the sermon of Saint Peter on the day of Pentecost. To those who crucified Jesus, who could have crucified the apostles, Peter courageously said: “You have killed the author of life…” (Acts 3:14; 4:10). Behold the true pastor, like Jesus, ready to give his life for others. Why are there so few priests and bishops, who live their vocation, and are able to say: “WE HAVE KILLED, CRUCIFIED JESUS WITH OUR MORTAL SINS”? It is more difficult than ever today to say this truth, because we have slid further away from the law of God than ever before in the history of the world. And thus the true prophets, to which we are all called by our baptism, will be persecuted more than ever as bad people.


We read in the prophecy of Saint Francis:
6. Those who in spiritual fervor will embrace piety with charity and zeal for the truth, will suffer persecutions and insults as if they were schismatics and disobedient. Because their persecutors, urged on by the evil spirits, will say that in this way they render a great honor to God in killing and removing from the face of the earth such pestilent men. But the Lord will be the refuge of the afflicted and He will save them, because they hoped in Him. And then in order to respect their Head, they will act according to the Faith and they will chose to obey God rather than men, gaining for themselves eternal life; they will fear nothing, and they will prefer to die rather than consent to error and perfidy.” (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2013/11/prophecy-st-francis.html).


According to my Auxiliary Bishop, Saint Francis of Assisi is bad!
Some preachers will keep silent about the truth and, denying the truth, they will trample upon the truth. The sanctity of life will be held in derision by those who only profess it outwardly, and for this reason Our Lord Jesus Christ will send them not a worthy Pastor, but a destroyer… At the decisive moment of this crisis, a personage not canonically elected, raised to the Pontificate, will endeavor to administer shrewdly to many the MORTAL POISON of his error.” (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2013/11/prophecy-st-francis.html).


But for the Auxiliary Bishop, “ prophecies and private revelations. These things do not regard the faith and cannot be imposed on anyone! Do not cause confusion, neither in the preaching, nor in your head”, and thus God made a mistake to offer prophets in the Old Testament and in the New Testament! Now the bishops are the source of all divine revelation and of prophecy!


The base here for so many priests who for years have let themselves slid into relativism, like spoiled children without contrition, by now believe that there is no hell, in order not to have any responsibility for their actions; and thus there is no more sin. This is the base, in total blindness, and thus Father Joe is bad a priori, without even listening to Father Joe. As I wrote in my letter to His Eminence:
Today, truly in the Catholic Church, among many priests and bishops, it is WORSE THAN THE TOWER OF BABEL before Christ, because at least with the Tower of Babel before Christ one could slowly communicate with a dictionary. But today the ideas and even the fundamental base is confused and set aside, the absolute Truth from the Creator of the universe and also the nature of man.”!


The Auxiliary Bishop wrote:
but I must instead ask you to “correct the aim” of your preaching, but after everything else to reconcile yourself with the concrete Church in which you live and exercise the ministry, accepting to put also yourself into discussion and to always seek communion. I am willing to listen to you still, to understand better – if your believe – your thought and to hear how you intend to change.”


It seems to me that according to the Auxiliary Bishop, also Jesus must “correct the aim” of His preaching! “Beware of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy” (Lk 12:1-7). “Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees…” (Mt 23:33-39)!


To hear how you intend to change”! Where is there an indication to have a dialogue in order to seek the Truth together according to the documents of the Magisterium of the Church, not according to the relativism of my head nor the relativism of the head of the Auxiliary Bishop? Is the bishop is the servant of the Truth or the author of the Truth? One of the titles of the pope is “The servant of the servants”.


“… to reconcile yourself with the concrete Church in which you live and exercise the ministry, accepting to put also yourself into discussion and to always seek communion”. But does this means that the Truth is established by the majority of the priests in the zone or by the Magisterium of the Church guided by the Holy Spirit in all of these centuries? Is this “communion” first of all with God, Who is the Truth, or first of all with the thought of the majority of priests who no longer speak about the sicknesses of the souls and the consequences of not living the law of God? Do I have to put aside all the documents of the Magisterium of the Church which many priests and bishops do no want or should I no longer talk; is this what it means “accepting to put also yourself into discussion and to always seek communion”? Jesus said: “I am the way, and the truth, and the life” (Jn 14:6). “He who loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me; and he who loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me…” (Mt 10:37).


What are the priorities of the Auxiliary Bishop, first communion with the priests in the zone or first communion with God Who is the Truth?


If my Auxiliary Bishop can offer me eternal life, I will obey him blindly as it seems that he wants, and I will prostrate myself before him and I will adore him!


The Auxiliary Bishop wrote:
I am sorry for the roughness that I used with you yesterday, but in your writing there is truly a harsh judgment against Father Pastor, Father George and many other priests and bishops, that you accuse of relativism and of bad conscience in guiding the people of God, according to a repetition of “to make the people happy”.
Father George is an Indian priest student who helps at this parish. It is interesting how the Auxiliary Bishop interpreted my words regarding Father George. It is the Pastor who is using this young priest; this is what I wanted to say regarding Father George, a young priest, who is not even capable of understanding the situation in this problem!


The Auxiliary Bishop wrote:
“… ask yourself if you are not by chance one who preaches without love the truth.”


What is the fundamental definition of love for the Auxiliary Bishop? He might say with his mouth, love of God and love of neighbor. But in this short exhortation to me the bishop only gave indications about charity or love toward others, but he gave no indication whatsoever about what pleases or displeases Jesus, what gives joy to Jesus or what causes Jesus to suffer. His entire thrust of what he wrote is about relationships among human beings and the cult of man, with no indication about the concern that the saints have, the first priority of love of God and pleasing God and consoling Jesus on the cross as all the saints did! There is no indication or concern about how much Jesus suffers on the cross for our sins, but only to talk about charity so that the people are happy or consoled regardless if what the people are doing has negative consequences to themselves or to others or if their actions cause Jesus to suffer due to personal sins. The saints spoke and wrote frequently about the desire to console the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Where is an indication of this desire of the saints in what the bishop wrote?


It is interesting to read the writings of Sister Lucy of Fatima:
At times we found little Francisco, who was hiding in order “to pray of to think”, as he would say, to the Lord, sad due to so many sins. If we asked him: - Francisco, why do you not tell me and Jacinta to pray with you? He would respond: - I like more to pray alone, to think and to console the Lord who is very sad. One day I asked him: - Francisco what pleases you more: to console the Lord or the convert sinners, so that souls do not go to hell? – I like more to console the Lord. Did you not notice how Our Lady, also last month, became so sad, when she said to not offend anymore the Lord God, who is already very offended? I would like to console the Lord and then convert the sinners so that they might not offend Him any more”.


For so many Catholics today, the first priority is man or the community, not God. Everything is upside down, for motives that seem good! Behold how “Satan disguises himself as an angel of light” (2Cor 11:14)!


HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE IN LOVE WITH JESUS like Blessed Francisco of Fatima, who want to console the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary? Saint Padre Pio said that Jesus will suffer until the end of the world for our sins, because for God, there is neither the past nor the future, but the eternal present. At the Holy Mass we are truly present at Calvary, the sacrifice of Jesus substantially; but how many Catholics want to discover or know this reality in order to put God at the center of the liturgy, at the center of the Holy Mass, instead of people or the community?


Blessed Francisco of Fatima, after having received Holy Communion from the Angel at Fatima, began to pass at least three hours everyday before the Tabernacle.
Pope John Paul II said in his homily at the Sanctuary of Our Lady of the Rosary of Fatima; Saturday, May 13, 2000:
Later Francisco, one of the three privileged children, exclaimed: "We were burning in that light which is God and we were not consumed. What is God like? It is impossible to say. In fact we will never be able to tell people". God: a light that burns without consuming. Moses had the same experience when he saw God in the burning bush; he heard God say that he was concerned about the slavery of his people and had decided to deliver them through him: "I will be with you" (cf. Ex 3: 2-12). Those who welcome this presence become the dwelling-place and, consequently, a "BURNING BUSH" of the Most High.”


The sons of this world are wiser in their own generation than the sons of light” (Lk 16:8). Satan and his followers know well the tactic to help people slowly slide in the direction according to his agenda.


If Christ is not first in our lives, and we do not think to console the Sacred Heart of Jesus, automatically go toward charity for only those we see with our physical eyes, as does the culture of death, which lacks the eyes of faith. Those with the eyes of faith see Jesus behind every person; they see Jesus who suffers more than the baby aborted or the woman abandoned. THOSE WITHOUT THE EYES OF FAITH HAVE NO CONCERN FOR THOSE THEY DO NOT SEE, such as the baby in the womb, or the effects of selling pornography or the effects on children whose parents have separated, or the price that Jesus pays on the cross for these sins until the end of time. It is very interesting, as well as revealing, that is these talks today about the divorced and the rights of those who live the homosexual life style, one does not hear about the rights or needs of the children; it is a public discourse with a totally egoistical logic. The children are not taken into consideration, but only the egotistical and irresponsible desires of the adults.


After Paul and Barnabas healed a crippled man from birth, the people of Lystra said: “The gods have come down to us in the likeness of men!” (Acts 14:5-18). Paul and Barnabas had to struggle to help the people give glory to the invisible God who created the entire universe. Does the bishop do as Paul so as to continually lead people toward the invisible God or does he put the first priority to “make happy the people” with their modern-day pagan gods in the cult of man, which is more pleasing to the people? If one does not continually struggle to go toward faith in the invisible realities of the one true God, automatically one goes toward only faith in the visible. This applies to everything in our faith, especially to struggle continually to see with our eyes of faith the infinite God in the Eucharist; otherwise we automatically slide toward less faith. But this struggle to see the invisible realities also applies to our whole existence which comes from God Who continually maintains us in existence. Behold the fundamental importance of faith and then gratitude for all that the eyes of faith perceive. Without gratitude, we no longer struggle to maintain the eyes of faith but we see only the visible world; we see other human beings but without the connection of faith that Jesus hides behind every person, especially “the least of my brethren” (Mt 25:31-46).


This formation of faith is a great and fundamental responsibility for those who are entrusted with the care of other souls, such as parents, priests and bishops. One sees this in the lives of the saints, when people wanted to attribute the visible fruits of the saints to the saints instead of to God. The saints had to repeat often to the people, as did Mother Teresa of Calcutta, as Paul and Barnabas, that they were only instruments in the hands of the Almighty God. How many priests and bishops do this today?


There is a young priest in a zone near me. A woman recounted how he gave a homily on the 10 Commandments. The young priest said that we can summarize the 10 Commandments in love of God and love of neighbor. But to be even more brief, he said we can summarize all of the commandments in just love of neighbor. What did this young priest learn in the seminary?
In my “Spiritual Food 1411”, you will find this paragraph:
[It is an attack on the truth of God.]
It grew gradually. It is enough to think of a subtle change that happened around the time of the Second Vatican Council. With the arrival of the “experts there developed the fashion of theologians, regardless of whether or not they deserved the name; the fact that they had published a book, in general that was enough. This continues and, with this, the center that guides the Church in the minds of many, has shifted from where God had placed it, in the hierarchy, the Pope and the bishops in union with him, and became the various opinions of all sorts of writers. [The students collected the books.] So, this has had an impact not only on the priests, but also on seminarians in many universities. This is the first part of the attack: the attack on the truth of God, the foundation of the Church.(http://wordbelife.blogspot.it/2014/11/spiritual-food-1411.html).


This reversal of love of God and love of neighbor is explained well by a damned priest (“A Damned Priest Warns About Hell”; http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2013/12/damned-priest.html):
One of the most important revelations of this exorcism is perhaps the most fundamental and most powerful deception promoted by the FREEMASONRY in the name of “love” and “mercy” while allowing the most important commandment of love of God slide into the second priority or even less. We see this very destructive reversal of priorities all around us in the Church today.
E: Speak the truth, Verdi Garandieu in the name ... for the glory of God, in the name of Jesus Christ, of the Most Holy Trinity, of the Father, of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, nothing but the truth and only the truth!
V : ... it is a sham, completely successful, of the FREEMASONRY to always say: love of neighbor, to live in love, make peace one with the other, forgive and support each other. And where do they arrive? Where do you end up with this support and this reconciliation? Look at the quotation of the suicides! If these men might see where the principle commandment really is! ... Of course, it is said in the first and greatest commandment: "And thy neighbor as thyself," but that comes later: "You shall love the Lord your God." You can not truly call that love what these priests live for years, these priests who have never yet lived as bad as they do now. One must only start here. One must practice again the principle commandment and the first few sentences totally, without limitation. And then this "your neighbor as yourself" will be included by itself. All the commandments in general are included in this main commandment. If it were observed, one would not have to talk always about charity, of love of neighbor, of attempts at reconciliation and whatever else. All this would be included in the single vision of an herb or a green branch, but nothing like this happens. They only discuss and they always talk about ecclesiastical assemblies and conferences of bishops.”


As we see in the overall tone of the response of the Auxiliary Bishop, the source or base of what is right or wrong is who has the more important title, not the teachings of the Church. Thus, the Auxiliary Bishop did not write anything about the merit of what I wrote nor the serious lackings of the Pastor. A priori, the Pastor and the Bishop are right and all those with a lesser title must express “how you intend to change”, instead of having a dialogue with the documents of the Magisterium of the Church on the table, not the relativism in my head nor the relativism in the head of the Pastor or of the Bishop! I thought that the Church is the handmaid of the Truth, not the Author of the Truth, and thus the ones with more authority in the Church must be the greater servants of the Truth, not the inventors of the Truth! Perhaps in the mind of the Bishop, Father Joe must return to the seminary to learn the new theology!?!


Dear friends, do not give up the fight. It is more difficult today than ever. Our Lady revealed to Father Stefano Gobbi:
We are living “in the midst of the greatest storm in history.” (August 28, 1973). “You will be buffeted by the wind of a tempest and a hurricane” (March 5, 1982). “Many of you will be scattered by the violent wind of this frightful hurricane.” (December 31, 1993).
But remember my dear friends, even though a hurricane is a frightening thing, a very violent tropical storm, at the center of the hurricane is the “eye of the hurricane” where there is calm and even a serene sky above. That eye of the spiritual hurricane of today is the Immaculate Heart of Mary!
My Heart is a refuge which protects you from all these events which are following one upon another. You will remain serene; you will not let yourself be troubled; you will have no fear. You will see all these things as from afar, without allowing yourself to be in the least affected by them.” (January 5, 1974).
“My motherly Heart will be for you the place of your peace, while outside the most violent storm is raging.” (October 18, 1975).
I would highly recommend, if you have not already, to read St. Louis de Montfort’s classic book: “True Devotion to Mary”, and then make the consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary! After reading this book in 1976, I made my personal consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on August 15, 1976. What an adventure my heavenly Mother has led me on after that point!!!

At the International Spiritual Exercises of the Marian Movement of Priests, at Collevalenza – Sanctuary of Merciful Love (Madre Speranza), June 23-29, 2013, one of the meditations offered by Father Ivan Pojavnik, to over 200 priests and to over 10 bishops of the movement, was “The Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, part2”. I would like to offer a few paragraphs of this meditation which can help us to understand and to distinguish between true love and false love which greatly harms us. A great number of Christians do not realize the difference and thus not even the great danger of the very destructive poison of false love.


My motherly plan is to give comfort to you in your sorrow, to pour balm on each of your wounds, and to give confidence and great hope to you in your discouragement. How difficult are the days in which you are living! This is the conclusive period of the purification and the great tribulation. In fact, all humanity is possessed by the spirits of evil, and my Church is shaken by the impetuous wind of errors, of divisions, of unbelief and of apostasy … The time is close when justice will espouse itself to divine mercy, for the purification of the earth. Prepare yourselves, all of you, to bear the pain of the great purifying trial (Our Lady to Don Stefano Gobbi – June 27, 1996).”


Neglecting the prayer of the Rosary, after the Council a theological current formed a new god-man, whose cult has become very wide spread in the last decades. Accentuating in a unilateral way the Love of God, this current has practically obscured the Justice of God. They say: “God is Love and does not send anyone to hell and thus it is empty”. It is true that God does not send anyone to hell, but it is the definitive love of self to the point of despising God that drives the souls to the infernal abyss.”


Each day many souls are being eternally lost! How many souls are going to hell because people no longer pray, because sin increase and reparation for it is no longer made, because error is followed with such ease!” (Our Lady to Don Stefano Gobbi – November 25, 1978).”


It is a revealed truth: heaven and hell do have their inhabitants and will never end (cf. Mt 25,31-46).”


God is Truth and Love. Without the truth there is no true love, but false love, that is love turned upside down: egoism. The cult of God revealed in Christ, Who is Love, without the Truth and Justice (cf. Sir 5:1-7), introduces adoration of a god-man who resembles a Santa Clause. This type of god-man has tolerated the diffusion of heresies in the Church, indiscipline at all levels, the pedophilia of a certain number of priests and religious, the violations of the vow of celibacy, has watered down penance and the announcement of the “Four Last Things”… The cult of god-man has lead to the gradual disappearance of sacramental confession and innumerable sacrilegious communions which have wounded the heart of the Church, so that She is in agony in every part of the world; and will lead to the horror of the desolation (cf. Our Lady to Don Stefano Gobbi – December 31, 1992). From this one can see that this god-man, behind the fa├žade of love, hide an immense wickedness with which he attempts to destroy the Church and to seduce a great number of souls to eternal damnation.”


In these last times, the struggle between good and evil, between grace and sin, between God and Satan, is reaching the summit of its power. It seems that, in your days, Satan has attained his victory, as during the Sabbath when Jesus lay lifeless in the sepulcher.” (Our Lady to Don Stefano Gobbi – April 16, 1995).”


Spreading the modern forms of the cult of the god-man, Satan has seduced almost all of humanity, which by now lies interiorly in the sepulcher, that is in the underground hemisphere of the globe. Succumbing to the most subtle forms of such a cult, there has been spread among the Christians the great apostasy of faith in the God-Man. During Holy Saturday Our Lady was the only one who remained steadfast in faith, hope and charity. In this new Holy Saturday the lived consecration to her Immaculate Heart is a medicine which preserves us from the epidemic of atheism (cf. Our Lady to Don Stefano Gobbi – May 13, 1976).”
