Find another Priest!
My life has been a journey of seeking the truth which you can see in my abundant articles. While I was discovering the saving truths of God in a world and in a Church more full of confusion than ever before, I began to preach these truths in my parishes. After having been sent away from one parish after another, in the end the Bishop of Perugia took away my last little parish (Cf. http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2015/05/road-perdition.html; http://cibo-spir.blogspot.it/2016/11/festa-falsa.html; http://cibo-spir.blogspot.it/2014/01/attirare-la-gente-chi.html; https://youtu.be/OhcOkeUhmsA), because today, more than ever, the first priority is to please the people, not God who is the Truth (Jn 14:6). Almost everywhere in the Catholic Church today, the religion is rather the cult of man instead of the cult of God!
A great number of people today SAY the Our Father, they give “lip service” to God, “THY will be done”, but do LIVE the Our Father: “MY will be done”. Years ago, the second question of the Catholic Catechism for children was: “Why did God create you?” As children we responded: “To know, to love and to serve God and to be happy with God in heaven forever.” For a great number of Catholics and Christians today, religion exists to serve oneself, not to “serve God”, not to help us discover God’s holy will for each of us and to help us live God’s holy will which is the best thing for each of us, since God loves us. But to do God’s will, we must say no everyday to our egoism with the help of God’s grace through prayer (especially the Holy Rosary) and the Holy Sacraments, especially the Sacraments of Reconciliation and the Most Holy Eucharist.
Now, we could say that things are going the other way, at least for me, that is, instead of being sent away from parishes (which I no longer have), it is I who do not offer my services where the people want a religion which serves man instead of a religion which helps people to serve God by discovering and doing the holy will of God. Thanks be to God, the bishop has not yet taken away my income (which comes from the government), at least until we arrive to: “Saint Peter returns the keys to Jesus” (http://spir-food.blogspot.com/2018/09/saint-peter-returns-keys-to-jesus.html).
The following is a letter that I gave (09-09-2018) to a sacristan, Vera, of a small parish here in Italy, where it is more and more difficult to find a priest for the motive of celebrating Masses for deceased people. Recently, Vera began to try to get me to preach according to what the people in the parish want, and thus I was supposed to remain in silence about the uncomfortable truths in the Catechism of the Catholic Church for adults (ed. 1992) and to remain in silence regarding warning the people about the very powerful, underhanded and hidden traps today for souls.

Find another priest! If I do not explain the Gospel in my homilies according to the Catechism of the Catholic Church for adults (CCC) and to warn the people about the great spiritual hidden dangers today, I will go, as a priest, to hell for all eternity and I will not go to hell for anyone, not even for you, nor for the parishioners nor for the neocatecumens with whom you were associated with for many years!!! I do not follow Kiko’s catechism (Neocatecumenal Way), but the Catechism of the Catholic Church!!!
A great number of priests and bishops today do not speak about the parts of the Gospel and of the Catechism of the Catholic Church for adults which their friends and parishioners do not want to hear!!! But did God give us the Ten Commandments for our good or for our evil?!? Do we trust God or do we trust ourselves or the world?!? These half truths are false love, false mercy, misguided compassion and false ecumenism which do not lead toward the Truth which truly makes us free now and forever (Jn 8:32), but to the truth according to the world, which offers us our comfort and our pleasure today but tomorrow and for eternity there is the worst of slavery! These priests and bishops are like “DUMB DOGS, THEY CANNOT BARK’ (Is 56:10); they do not protect the sheep from the wolf disguised as a lamb, disguised as pastors!
“To The Priests OUR LADY’s Beloved Sons” (through Don Stefano Gobbi, September 8, 1985; http://our-lady-priests.blogspot.it/):
“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. The time of your public and courageous witness has come”.
“How many pastors there are today who no longer defend the flock which has been entrusted to them by Jesus! Some remain silent when they should speak courageously to defend the truth and to condemn error and sin. They tolerate to avoid risk; they descend to compromise simply to maintain their privileges. Thus error is spread under the form of ambiguous formulas, and reparation is no longer made for sin, in a progressive apostasy from Jesus and from his Gospel.” (September 15, 1982; September 8, 1985; October 27, 1980; February 9, 1985; October 7, 1990; February 26, 1991; June 8, 1991; September 8, 1982; September 8, 1993).
“To The Priests Our Lady’s Beloved Sons” in Madrid (Spain), September 29, 1988:
“There are three snares with which Satan is trying today to seduce you in order to draw you away from Jesus and from me.
- The first is in regard to your native land, which has officially departed from the road of its time-honored fidelity to Christian tradition to welcome atheistic and materialistic ideologies. Thus the error of indifferentism has been accepted into political and social life, and in the name of a false freedom, divorce, abortion and all the methods of preventing life have been legitimized. What is left that is Christian today in this country of yours, which has, however, been a light to all the world, thanks to the example given by many of its saints and many of its martyrs? Return, O Spain, along the road of conversion and of your greater fidelity to Christ!
- The second is in regard to the Church, which is living in this country of yours. It is penetrated with a secularism which has particularly stricken the life of many priests and many religious. It has been lacerated by a deep interior division. It has been stricken in its pastors who, for fear of exposing themselves to criticisms, are remaining silent and are no longer defending the flock which Christ has entrusted to them. To you (the priests), who are the Angels of the Churches, I address today the sorrowful reproach of my motherly Heart, for your lack of faith, of zeal, of prayer and of holiness. The Lord is about to ask you for an account of how you have managed his vineyard and why you have permitted rapacious wolves to enter into it, disguised as lambs, in order to devour a downtrodden and dispersed flock.
- The third is in regard to the life of my children, especially youth, menaced with such a great spread of immorality. …”
“The time has come to proclaim to all, with clarity and with courage, that the sixth commandment given by God to Moses: `Do not commit impure acts,' (cf. Ex 20:14) still has its full force and must be observed even by this corrupted and perverted generation.” (Seattle (Washington, US.A.); June 2, 1987). Then in September 1987, Pope John Paul II said the same thing to the bishops in LA, California.
The few 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. But this way of doing things is not true mercy!
I prepared this written because I realized that you do not want to hear something that is not in agreement with your opinion.
Dear Vera, even though you seem to be a good sacristan, by now I realize that you do as do a great number of Catholics today: the first priority is what your friends want, not the Truth that comes from God, explained by the Magisterium of the Church and well summarized in the CCC. Did God give us the Ten Commandments for our good or for our evil??? Did Jesus give us the Magisterium of the Church of more than 2000 years to interpret Divine Revelation, which includes Sacred Scriptures, according to men or according to God?!? Vera, is your first priority the salvations of souls or human respect? But is the criteria of the salvation of souls established by God or by men? In each situation, what is your first question, “God what do you want in this situation?”, or rather, “What do I want or what do my friends want?” Do we trust God or do we trust ourselves?
And so, do not phone me anymore because I follow God, I do not follow men!
One of the greatest forces working to DESTROY THE FAMILY and society is radical feminism. The goals of feminism are: the destruction of patriarchy; control of reproduction including contraception, abortion, and reproductive technologies; destruction of the fatherheaded family with divorce and illegitimacy made normal; all women in the workforce, no man able to support his family and free 24 hour day care; destruction of all-male institutions; total sexual liberation including sex for children, homosexuality, and bisexuality; destruction of worship of God as father.
Without realizing it, the great majority of women (and men) in the Catholic Church (and in the world) are brainwashed by secular feminism, not Christian feminism, and thus there is no longer respect for the vocations of each person according to God but according to the world. Children have been shrewdly separated from their parents so that the world forms the children. “The prince of the world”, with the mass media, is Satan (Jn 12:31; 14:30; Rev 12:9). If the man sincerely prays (“THY will be done”, not “MY will be done”) he will realize his vocation to protect the family and the society materially but especially spiritually as head of the family. If the woman sincerely prays she will realize her vocation to inspire (not to seduce or manipulate) the man and to be the heart of the family and of the society. Satan wants to confuse the vocations from God so as to pit one against the other and even to the point today of arriving to promoting homosexuality and “gender”, to existentially rebel against how God made man and woman! Secular Feminism promotes also protagonism instead of authentic trust in Jesus and Mary. Behold one of the most powerful and sly ways to destroy the family, the society and the Church! It is interesting how the Sacred Scriptures, in very few words, reassumed the fundamental cause of the great flood: “the sons of God” took to wife “the daughters of men” (Gen 6:2). About ninety years ago, Masonry, with their right arm, Communism, smuggled into Europe and into the United States a great amount of pornography so that “the sons of God” took to wife “the daughters of men”, that is, the women who seduce and manipulate instead of inspiring men toward the true virtues and toward God! We have arrived to the point that just about everything is upside down: “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil” (Is 5:20).
Fr. Larry Richards said on a program of EWTN, “Living Right” with Dr. Ray (“Women And The Church”): “You only worry about the roles of women if you worry about power. If you worry about servanthood then the roles are all about different ways to serve.”
Often Our Lady gives us these messages:
“My Heart is pained by the great danger into which your homeland is running, because of the spread of violence and hatred, of evil and of immorality. In the name of a false way of understanding liberty, even the gravest moral disorders are today being permitted and justified. Impurity is EXALTED and spread about through the social means of communication, and thus a veil of darkness has descended to blind the souls of many of my children” (“To The Priests Our Lady’s Beloved Sons”; Sao Paulo (Brazil); February 25, 1988).
If there might be an indication that you and the people at Colpiccione want to go toward God with humility, to calmly dialogue in order seek together what God wants according to the teachings of the Church of 2000 years, I’m all for it. We are all weak, I agree. But the real problem is that THERE IS NOT THE DESIRE to follow Jesus with the cross but to criticize a priest who says we must live the Our Father: “THY will be done”, not “MY will be done”. Thus you do not need one of the few priests today who still says that we must do what we learned as children. Years ago, the second question of the Catholic Catechism for children was: “Why did God create you?” As children we responded: “To know, to love and to serve God and to be happy with God in heaven forever.” For a great number of Catholics and Christians today, religion exists to serve oneself, not to “serve God”, not to help us discover God’s holy will for each of us and to help us live God’s holy will which is the best thing for each of us, since God loves us. There are a great number of priests and bishops today who are “dumb dog” regarding the difficult things of the Gospel and of the CCC. Call one of those, for your Masses for your dead relatives, who lead you more and more along the way of “Ignorance is Bliss”!
During the centuries of human existence, God has revealed his Truth which “sets us free” (Jn 8:32); we call this Divine Revelation. God sent his only Son Jesus who founded a Church, the Catholic Church, to guide us in interpreting Divine Revelation according to God, not according to the very numerous opinions of men and of women, who are very often not inspired by pure love of God and neighbor, nor by true humility. Divine Revelation has been written down, with the guidance of the Holy Spirit for 2000 years, in the documents of the Church, and well summarized in the Catechism of the Catholic Church for adults (CCC; ed. 1992, promulgated by Pope John Paul II; http://www.vatican.va/archive/ENG0015/_INDEX.HTM). The world today is more full of falsehoods than ever before: beautiful deadly lies from “the father of lies” (Jn 8:44) presented as if they were the truth, hidden destructive deceptions (such as the devil, hell and sin no longer exist!!!), misguided compassion and HALF TRUTHS (which are worse than lies!), especially to speak only about mercy without “Go and sin no more” (Jn 8:11; 5:14).
“We learn from history that we do not learn from history” - Georg Hegel. “Those who do not remember the past are condemned to repeat it” – George Stantayana. This is because most people do not want to pay the price to change their lives according to God’s revealed Truth, and so they slowly embrace the easier philosophy of life, “Ignorance is Bliss”, which is always accompanied by more spiritual blindness! Very few people today realize, or want to realize, the great devastation caused by changing or ignoring even an “iota” (Mt 5:17-18; 24, 35) of the laws of God which were given to us for our true good!!!
Dear Vera, find another priest according to what you and your friends want. The great majority of priests and bishops today follow people, not God. The great majority of priests and bishops today are “dumb dogs” (Is 56:10). Here is what Pope St. Gregory the Great (Office of Readings; Sunday, Week 27 of OT), says about these very numerous priests and bishops today:
“A religious leader should be careful in deciding when to remain silent and be sure to say something useful when deciding to speak. In this way he will avoid saying things that would be better not said, or leaving unsaid things that ought to be said. For, just as thoughtless remarks can lead people into error, so also ill-advised silence can leave people in their error, when they could have been shown where they were wrong. 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.’ (Lam 2:14) …”
Here is what Saint Augustine says:
“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, Week 24, OT, Friday).
“ “The weak you have not strengthened” (Ez 34:4), says the Lord. He is speaking to the wicked shepherds, the false shepherds, those who seek their own advantage, not what is Christ’s. Happy in the benefit of milk and wool, they take no care of the sheep at all, not heal the sick” (Sermon of St. Augustine on the Shepherds; Office of Readings, Week 25, OT, Sunday).
Here is what Pope John Paul II says:
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."
Saint Paul was not a “dumb dog” (Is 56:10): “So that we may no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the cunning of men, by their craftiness in deceitful wiles” (Eph 4:14).
Saint Michael the Archangel at Garabandal, sent by Our Lady, (Spain, 1965) said: “Many Cardinal, many Bishops and many Priests are on the road to perdition and with them they are bringing many souls”! Three years later there was the great rebellion against “Humanae Vitae” which maintained the perennial teaching of the Church that to use contraceptives is a mortal sin!
Considering the great responsibility of priests and bishops, saints John Chrysostom, John Eudes and Athanasius said that the road (or the floor of hell) to Hell is paved with the bones of priests and monks, and the skulls of bishops are the lamp posts that light the path! We must pray for priests and bishops!
In the article that I gave you a printed copy last time that I was at Colpiccione, “Neocatecumenal Way - a Trojan Horse in the Church”
This deception, this lose of the Eucharist, “the source and summit of the Christian life” (Vat. II: LG 11; CCC 1324), is being done slowly and in such a way that as few Catholics as possible will realize the lose of our greatest treasure and strength on earth, the real sacramental presence of Jesus Christ. The focus of attention has been intentionally shifted from adoration of God to man as the center of the Liturgy. Even fewer Catholics know the FOUR CONDITIONS NECESSARY FOR A VALID MASS. None of this could happen if the priests and bishops of the Catholic Church would obey the Liturgical Books of the Catholic Church; Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict ordered the founders of the Neocatecumenal Way to obey the Liturgical Books, for their true good and protection, but THEY REFUSED OBEY (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2015/02/the-neocatecumenal-mass.html).
Jesus never offered compromises even when there was the risk of losing many followers. When many of his disciples left him regarding the truth about the Eucharist, He did not offer compromises with the truth (as do a great number of priests, bishops and politicians today!), but He was even ready to lose His apostles: “Will you also go away” (Jn 6:67)!
Following the Truth even to the end, Jesus lost almost all of His followers, His group of disciples and apostles, while He was dying on the cross, humiliated and tortured. In this period, as we know, the Body of Christ, the Church, will be crucified and buried as was Jesus 2000 years ago; then after there will be the resurrection of the purified Church with the few people who remained faithful to the Truth (CCC 675-677). We find in the messages of Our Lady to Don Stefano Gobbi that the true priests must be as Jesus in the period, victims for the expiation of the Church, ready to lose all for Jesus, even their followers or groups of people entrusted to them.
When the disciples “were amazed at His words”, and even “exceedingly astonished”, Christ did not offer false and empty and destructive compromises as so many leaders in the Church today are offering to the gullible “Christians”, but rather said: “With men it is impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God” (Mk 10:23-27).
God is with which people? The humble who obey God or with who? Can we accept compromises if we want to remain united with Jesus? A great number of Catholics today accept what is comfortable, or for other hidden motives, choosing among the easy teachings of the Church (leaving behind and putting aside the difficult ones as Pope John Paul clearly said in 1987 in L.A., California), and then they do something that seems good in the Church to feel OK in their religion and before men; God is not with these people even if in our eyes it seems that there are good fruits. The Church has always taught that the end never justifies the means!!! Because if this were so, fundamentally, we trust in ourselves, not in God!
In the final message of the Blessed Virgin, October 13, 1973, on the anniversary of the last apparition and of the miracle of Fatima, at AKITA, Japan, she said to Sister Agnes Sasagawa: “As I told you, if men do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the deluge, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms that will remain for you will be the Rosary and Sign left by My Son. Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary. WITH THE ROSARY, PRAY FOR THE POPE, THE BISHOPS, AND THE PRIESTS. The work of the devil will infiltrate even the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against other bishops. The priests who venerate Me will be scorned and opposed by their conferees, churches and altars sacked, THE CHURCH WILL BE FULL OF THOSE WHO ACCEPT COMPROMISE and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord. The demon will be especially implacable against souls consecrated to God. The thought of the loss of so many souls is the cause of My sadness. If sins increase in number and gravity, there will be no longer pardon for them.” (http://www.miraclerosarymission.org/akita.htm).
“To The Priests Our Lady’s Beloved Sons”:
“To walk along my way, there can be no descending to compromise with evil, because this road winds its way only over [the terrain] of enmity between these two opposed realities. My Son Jesus becomes the sign of this contradiction and has been given to you by the Father for the salvation and the ruin of many. You are now living 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 my 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 despoiling the announcement of the Gospel of its force” (December 8, 1982).
“Always announce the Gospel that you live with fidelity and clarity! Your speech must be: ‘Yes, Yes – No, No.’. Everything else comes from the Evil One” (Mt 5:37; February 2, 1976).
Do you believe, Vera, that Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI ordered the founders of the Neocatecumenal Way to “obey the Liturgical Books faithfully and exactly”, for their true good or for their evil. But for you Vera, like so many Catholics today, totally immersed in subjectivism and relativism, one no longer obeys the perennial teachings of the Catholic Church if “I” am not in agreement, as if I am GOD! When I spoke about these things with you, you always responded: “It seems to ME”! The last time we saw each other you said: “To me it seems fine to receive Communion in the hand” (“The History of Communion in the Hand” - Communion in the hand was not only started in disobedience, but was perpetuated by deception!; http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2016/12/history-communion-in-hand.html). You made no indication whatsoever to try to discover together what God might want in this situation!!! You never asked me to see and to read the documents of the Church regarding the argument at hand; this is exactly the way the pastor at Magione always responded, who does not even say “It seems to me”, but criticized everything that is not in agreement with his head without ever reading or studying the documents of the Church regarding the argument at hand. Vera, WE ARE NOT PART OF THE SAME RELIGION!!! Today in the great apostasy (2Thess 2:3) the great majority of Catholics are in the cult of man instead of the cult of God! If I follow the Magisterium of the Church of 2000 years ONLY TO THE POINT THAT I AM IN AGREEMENT, or the ideas and opinions and beliefs and desires of my friends or my group or the head of a movement who is not obedient, I, Father Joe, will go to hell for all eternity!!! After years of taking the easier way you are no longer used to seeking the Truth outside of your head and making reference to Divine Revelation but you have allowed yourself to slide into subjectivism and relativism in which “YOUR truth” is not in harmony with what you say with your mouth in the Our Father: “THY will be done”! God does not send anyone to hell; the people do not want to be with God because they are the ones who command, not God in their lives. But if everyone wants to command in that eternal place separated from God, who commands in that place? The one who is the strongest. But who is the strongest in hell? Satan! I prefer to be under God, a benevolent dictatorship for eternity, than under Satan, a malevolent dictatorship for all eternity!!!
I do not believe, Vera, that you realize, or that you want to realize, that we are the generation (Mt 24:34) of the “great tribulation” (Mt 24:21) of which Jesus spoke about, when “if possible, even the elect” (Mt 24:24) will be led astray. I do not believe, Vera, that you realize, or that you want to realize, that it is our generation of the great apostasy of which Saint Paul wrote about in 2 Thess ch. 2. I do not believe, Vera, that you realize, or that you want to realize, how far away the people in the Church are from the Truth and from living the Truth, and thus far away from God!!! It seems that the only thing that counts for you and for your friends is to be comfortable in this short life, and that it is not necessary to seek to discover and to do the will of God which is found in Divine Revelation explained well in the Doctrines of the Church and well summarized in the CCC!
On November 11, 2013, Archbishop Carlo Maria VIGANÒ, the Apostolic Nuncio (Papal Ambassador) to the United States, addressed the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops at their annual fall meeting in Baltimore, Maryland.
Archbishop Viganò quoted as “profoundly prophetic” remarks made by Blessed John Paul II (then Cardinal Wojtyla) during the Eucharistic Congress on Aug. 13, 1976 for the Bicentennial celebration of the signing of our Declaration of Independence:
“We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has ever experienced. I do not think that the wide circle of the American Society, or the whole wide circle of the Christian Community realize this fully. We are now facing the FINAL CONFRONTATION between the Church and the anti-church, between the gospel and the anti-gospel, between Christ and the antichrist. The confrontation lies within the plans of Divine Providence. It is, therefore, in God's Plan, and it must be a trial which the Church must take up, and face courageously….” (Cardinal Ivan Dias also quoted this at Lourdes, France, on December 13, 2007).
Archbishop Viganò said that he viewed these words “as a call to attentiveness, watchfulness and preparedness for whatever proclaiming the Gospel may mean for us as successors of the Apostles, who were called to give radical witness to their faith in Jesus Christ.”
There are many documents about the infiltration into the Church by atheists and communists:
“Bella Dodd — From Communist to Catholic” (https://opportuneimportune.blogspot.com/2016/12/bella-dodds-four-cardinals-here-names.html; http://catholicism.org/bella-dodd-%E2%80%94-from-communist-to-catholic.html(.
And so Vera, best wishes before God. Explain to God that according to you Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI made a mistake to order the founders of the Neocatecumenal Way to “obey the Liturgical Books faithfully and exactly”. Explain to God when you die that God must follow the world and men, since men are more intelligent and wise and know best how to love!
I repeat, there are a great number of priests and bishops today who preach as you want and as the great majority of lay people want today. Thus the next time that you need a priest, find one of these who preach like you and the people want, not according to the CCC, the whole integral Truth, the uncomfortable Truth who is Jesus crucified! If you do not find a priest, I will not come all the same because you and the people are not concerned about Jesus who is the crucified Truth, who suffers now for our sins and indifference, but you are concerned for the sentiments and feelings of the people who have a dead relative, not for our dead and abandoned Jesus, who suffers more than ever before today!!! You have slid from the cult of God, that you learned as children, to the cult of man! There are a great number of priests and bishops today who serve the cult of man even though they say they are priests and bishops of the Catholic Church, but never make reference to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, like the protestants!!!
Father Joseph Dwight
If you might be interested in more information according to the teachings of the Church, according to the Truth that does not change with the customs of the world or of the cult of man, I put the following in a few of my blogs:
There is less prayer than ever before, more sin than ever before, even worse, indifference as if sin no longer exists, and so we have given much greater power to “the father of lies”, Satan (Jn 8:44). In particular Satan has more power to “disguise himself as an angel of light” (2Cor 11:14), to offer his very deadly beautiful lies as if they were the “truth that sets us free” (Jn 8:32)!
Thus it is very important in these times of great confusion, when even Catholic bishops are no longer in agreement about the fundamentals of our faith and morals, to not only pray much and to study the Catechism of the Catholic Church for adults, but to keep our eyes open so as not to fall into the beautiful lies of Satan presented as if they were the Truth!
