The following is an email that I recently sent to my bishop, the auxiliary bishop of Perugia, Italy.
In a packed cathedral of Saint Lawrence, deacon and martyr, in Perugia, Sunday afternoon August 10, 2014, Mons. Paolo Giulietti was consecrated titular bishop of Termine Imerese and auxiliary of Perugia-Città della Pieve.
Five years later Mons. Paolo Giulietti was nominated by Pope Francis to become the Archbishop of Lucca, Italy in May 2019.

A Letter to My Bishop
Dear Don Paolo,
During the Retreat for clergy, on February 13 (2019), you invited me to play my accordion at Ponte San Giovanni on March 5th, like we used to play together in past years in the musical group of 5 priests of our diocese of Perugia, “Cloro al Clero”; I remember well when we went to play for the men in prison at the Capanne di Perugia on January 24, 2011. After some reflection, I understood that, in the present situation, God would not be happy if I go.
When you called me to your office on October 13, 2015, you told me that I do not get along with the pastor of Magione, nor with the neocatecumens, and now at Lisciano Niccone (my parish), and thus all of my assignments were taken away in the diocese of Perugia. As they say in American baseball: “THREE STRIKES AND YOU’RE OUT!”, without first speaking or having a dialogue with the accused as do true Christians and all the true saints. At least in the civil courts in Europe and in America they try to fake that the accused is innocent until proven guilty of the crime committed, even though the one who has more money wins. But it seems to me that in many ecclesial tribunals where the ones in charge are not too mature but rather insecure, the accused is guilty until the accused succeeds in establishing his own innocence (without being allowed to make reference to the documents of the Church!); one fakes justice according to the Gospel but instead in so many diocese today there reigns the dictatorship of relativism (THE NEW MODERN SANHEDRINS OF THE DICTATORSHIP OF RELATIVISM). The one who remains faithful to the Catechism of the Catholic Church for adults (ed. 1992) is guilty of not being in agreement with the majority of human beings, and with the new theology, the modern church, the cult of man today! You did not seem to me too happy when I told you that all of my homilies are recorded and many of them are published on Youtube where one can listen to the homilies that some people were not happy with. You two bishops listened to all the other people who talked behind the back of Fr. Joe! WHAT A NICE EXAMPLE AND MODEL OF THE HIGHEST VIRTUE IN THE DIOCESE OF PERUGIA that the two bishops have given! Should I try to treat all the people with whom I come in contact in the same way that the two bishops of Perugia treated me?!? Toward the end of our meeting on October 13, 2015, you told me that I could submit to going through a process of reformation or that there would be a trial to investigate me on the theological level because YOU TOLD ME THAT ON THE MORAL LEVEL THAT I WAS “IMPECCABLE”. It is clear that you knew well that about six months before you sent me away from this parish that there was a woman of the parish, Assunta F., who tried in many ways to seduce me, but she did not succeed. “So that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say of us” (Titus 2:8). Before going away from the parish, I said to Assunta F. that if a priest prays well every day, it is not difficult to overcome temptations; the problem is that many priests and bishops today do not pray, at least to seek sincerely to live the Our Father: “THY will be done”, and not MY will be done! THIS IS BECOMING SO NORMAL TODAY FOR PRIESTS AND BISHOPS TO NOT LIVE CHASTITY that I would not be surprised if you thought that Don Jo would not resist these temptations!
IN MY HOMILY ON NOVEMBER 1, 2013 AT THE CEMETERY of my parish of Lisciano Niccone (PG), I gave a few scoldings to the people when I said that at that Mass at the cemetery of the parish, there were more than 100 people, but at the Sunday Mass, there were less than 20. I said to them: “For the Mamma or the Grandmother here at the cemetery, more than 100 people, but for Jesus Who gave you your Mamma and your Grandmother and all the rest, less than 20 people at the Sunday Mass; it seems to me that it has become a religion of the dead instead of the living. Without gratitude, there is no salvation!” Since Jesus loves each one of us immensely we cannot possibly imagine how much Jesus suffers in each present moment on the cross due to our indifference! Saint Padre Pio and the saints tell us that Jesus suffers immensely for our sins until the end of time! How many people are closed in their own little world and in their own point of view and thus do not try to console Jesus as do all the saints who are truly in love with Jesus crucified?
The Sunday after this homily at the cemetery, a couple of parishioners gave me a scolding. As a response to this, I put on the bulletin board outside of the church the following (in Italian):
“Attirare la Gente, a Chi?” (http://cibo-spir.blogspot.it/2014/01/attirare-la-gente-chi.html).
If you have the courage, dear brother, to seek the uncomfortable truth (who is Jesus crucified) and not just to “please the people” (with only Jesus risen), listen to the actual homily at the cemetery on November 1, 2013, in Italian:
“Omelia Don Jo 131101 Tutti Santi Lisciano”
I write to you as I wrote to Don Stefano Orsini on September 29, 2018 (attached):
“Dear Don Stefano, I will come to your celebrations WHEN YOU WILL HAVE THE COURAGE TO TAKE THE RISK OF DIALOGUING WITH ME REGARDING MY OBJECTIONS AND RESERVATIONS ACCORDING TO THE TRUTH WELL SUMMARIZED IN THE CCC. I will come to your celebrations when we can walk together toward the Truth which does not change and which leads us toward Jesus and heaven, not toward the “truth” according to my head nor according to your head or according to the world or our friends, which would be the cult of man instead of the cult of God. In this way there will truly be “Jesus in our midst” and NOT JUST EMPTY WORDS, with the “Truth in our midst”, the Truth Who is Jesus (Jn 14:6), not the “truth” of the world! “For where two or three are gathered in my name (in the Truth!!!), there am I in the midst of them” (Mt 18:20). You say you are Catholic?!? If so let us together look at Divine Revelation explained well in the documents of the Church and well summarized in the Catechism of the Catholic Church for adults (CCC, ed. 1992)!!!
Today (false) “love” and (false) “mercy” means to say what people want to hear rather than what our God of Love desires to communicate to us. As a priest, I feel more and more today great pressure from priests and lay people to not talk about the difficult truths in the Gospel or in the Catechism of the Catholic Church for adults (CCC; ed. 1992; http://www.vatican.va/archive/ENG0015/_INDEX.HTM). Do we believe that God gave us the Ten Commandments for our true good or for our evil?!? Do we trust God or do we trust ourselves?!? Does the Truth come from God or from man or from the Church?!? Is the Church the handmaid of the Truth or the Author of the Truth?!? Where do we believe we will spend eternity – with God or separated from God?!? “The chief punishment of hell is eternal separation from God” (CCC 1035). But Jesus is the Truth (Jn 14:6), and after more than 18 years of spending more than one hour every day on my knees before our Eucharistic Lord in Church, I am in love with not just Christ risen but especially Christ crucified, the uncomfortable Truth, which will set us truly free (Jn 8:32) now and for all eternity!!! Jesus is the Victim, the Lamb of God, who offers Himself on the altar during the Holy Mass, who asks the priests to be victims with Him; about this sacred reality one hears very little in the Church today. Thus I will not remain silent before men (Lk 16:15; 6:26; Jn 5:44; 12,39-43; Mt 6:1-6; 16-18) about talking about the One I love more than anyone or anything, even if my cardinal takes away my parish, and later, in this period of the “great tribulation” (Mt 24:21; Rev 7:14), even my life!!!
At our monthly retreats of the clergy, one hears continually about community, charity and mercy, which are very important things and fundamental, but if the proper priorities are not maintained, these nice things lose not only their meaning but also their value not only before God but also, at least after, before men, because people realize afterwards that it is a false community, false charity and false mercy!
Even though you do not feel you need the help of the Mother of God, I offer you a message from Our Lady given to Don Stefano Gobbi, February 11, 1977 (http://our-lady-priests.blogspot.it/):
“I want you pure of heart to be truly capable of loving. Your love should be supernatural and divine. All inordinate attachment to yourselves or to creatures bedims its interior purity.
o You ought to love my Son Jesus, and souls for love of Him. Can one love one's neighbor and not love God? Today there is this tendency, so false and so widespread even among many of my children: to seek to love one's neighbor while ignoring God.
p You can always do good, and help your neighbor. But for your love to be supernatural and perfect, it must begin with God. Love the Most Holy Trinity with the Heart of my Son Jesus, and among yourselves love each other as He has loved you. In this way your love will always be more pure, and you will be capable of truly loving your brothers.
q Only he who is chaste of heart can open himself to a great capacity for loving and can live the virtue of charity.
r Today still, it is the pure of heart who can see God and, in his light, understand and love all men.
s I want you pure in body.”
At our monthly meetings of the diocese for the permanent formation of the clergy (March 2017, on Amoris Laetita), in the small groups, I asked why is it that we hear only half of the truth, about mercy, but not the other part of the truth. Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI said and wrote many times: “ONLY WHAT IS TRUE CAN ULTIMATELY BE PASTORAL”! At a certain point a priest of over 70 years tried to convince me about mercy citing the passage of the Gospel about the adulteress. After he stopped talking I asked him, why is it that you did not say anything to us about the words of Jesus at the end of this passage, that is, “Go and sin no more”? I said to him, and before the other priests present in our group, that A HALF TRUTH IS WORSE THAN A LIE, because one believes to have received the whole truth. Similarly the saints tell us that sins of omission are worse than sins of commission! I said that at the Angelus on the Fifth Sunday of Lent, with the Gospel of the adulteress (Jn 8:1-11), Pope Francis did not mention the traditional theme (cf. “Messale dell’Assemblea Cristiana; Centro Catechistico Salesiano; Editori: ELLE DI CI) that has been given to this Gospel passage: “Go and sin no more”! (“Angelus Domini 2016.03.13”; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mPNMk1N5ypc; https://w2.vatican.va/content/francesco/en/angelus/2016/documents/papa-francesco_angelus_20160313.html). Another older priest in our group, during this rather lively debate woke up, and he helped us remember what we studied in pastoral theology that the recent popes, in the world today, put us on our guard not so much about the lack of applying the “LAW OF GRADUALITY” but rather the great 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 (cfr. Esortazione Familiaris Consortio (1981), n. 34, 9; Humanae Vitae (1968), no. 28) (“The True Easter!” (Good Pastors or Mercenary Pastors?); http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2017/05/the-true-easter.html).
Speaking about the holiness of Pope John Paul II, Benedict XVI, March 7, 2014: “The courage of the truth is, in my eyes, a criterion of the first order of sainthood.” (http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/in-rare-interview-benedict-xvi-recalls-life-john-paul-ii/).
Half truths are continually presented which are worse that lies. The priorities of love of God and of neighbor are overturned: "You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the great and FIRST commandment. And a SECOND is like it, You shall love your neighbor as yourself” (Mt 22:37-38)! Saint Augustine described well these two points of view reciprocally exclusive in his famous book, “The City of God”! It is not difficult to find this explanation in the documents of the Church and in the writings of the saints in the last 2000 years if a person wants to open his eyes to the whole of Divine Revelation
Pope John Paul II (October 13, 1999):
“2. The commandment in Deuteronomy remains unchanged in the teaching of Jesus, who describes it as "THE GREAT AND FIRST COMMANDMENT", closely relating it to love of neighbour (cf. Mt 22: 34-40). By expressing this commandment in the same terms as the Old Testament, Jesus shows that on this point Revelation had already reached its apex.” (https://w2.vatican.va/content/john-paul-ii/en/audiences/1999/documents/hf_jp-ii_aud_13101999.html).
Pope Benedict XVI (October 26, 2008):
“The Word of the Lord, resounding a short while ago in the Gospel, reminded us that the whole divine law is summarized in love. The Evangelist Matthew narrates that after Jesus had answered the Sadducees, silencing them, the Pharisees met to put him to the test (cf. 22: 34-35). One of them, a doctor of law, asked him: "Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the law?" (22: 36). The question makes apparent the concern, present in ancient Jewish tradition, over finding a unifying principle in the various formulations of God's will. This was not an easy question, considering that in the law of Moses, a good 613 precepts and prohibitions are contemplated. How does one discern, among all of these, which is the most important? But Jesus does not hesitate, and readily responds: "You shall love the Lord your God with your all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your mind. THIS IS THE GREAT AND FIRST COMMANDMENT" (22: 37-38).” (http://w2.vatican.va/content/benedict-xvi/en/homilies/2008/documents/hf_ben-xvi_hom_20081026_conclusione-sinodo.html)-
“The Pope’s First Commandment Problem” (https://culbreath.wordpress.com/2014/10/28/the-popes-first-commandment-problem/).
“The love of God comes first in the order of command, but the love of neighbor first in the order of action. The man who would teach you this love in two commandments should not commend to you first your neighbor and then God, but first God and then your neighbor” (St. Augunstin’s Treatises on St. John; January 3, Office of Readings).
“The Antichrist will conquer many people by saying: “You can do all that you like... it is enough to love each other...” - Saint Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179; Doctor of the Church) (http://profezie3m.altervista.org/ptm_profx_santaildegarda.htm)
It seems to me that there was still a spark of this truth in your conscience when you wrote to me on October 9 2014 “according to a numerous repetition of “to make the people happy”.” (“The Hidden Broad Road to Perdition”, http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2015/05/road-perdition.html). “Am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still pleasing men, I should not be a servant of Christ.” (Gal 1:10). Even the scribes and the chief priests had to admit that Jesus had no regard for HUMAN RESPECT: “Teacher, we know that you speak and teach rightly, and SHOW NO PARTIALITY, but truly teach the way of God” (Lk 20:21; Mk 12:13; Mt 22:16).
We are living in a world 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!!! The great majority of the pastors today “are all DUMB DOGS, they cannot bark” (Is 56:10) to warn the sheep of the very sly wolf, Satan! These poor pastors, who seek to please men instead of God (Jn 5:44; Mt 6:1-6, 16-18; Gal 1:10), offer 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)! The popes of the last 90 years up to 6 years ago told us that the greatest sin today is that we have lost the sense of sin! “Forbidden To Speak About Sin” (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2016/09/forbidden-to-speak-about-sin.html)!
“Or do you presume upon the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience? Do you not know that God's kindness is meant to lead you to repentance?” (Rom 2:4; Gal 6:7-8).
“Adultery and Homosexuality. The Two Vanished Words” (http://magister.blogautore.espresso.repubblica.it/2019/03/08/adultery-and-homosexuality-the-two-vanished-words/).
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!!! For the great majority of priests and bishops today, the first priority is human respect, not the uncomfortable Truth Who is Christ crucified. Some do present the truth but only occasionally and in such a way that no one is offended or no one realizes that they are not living the Gospel according to the teachings of the Church, and in this way these priests and bishops believe that they cannot be accused of not being orthodox while at the same time they do not lose their followers and economic income. These pastors do not protect the sheep from the wolf! “Satan disguises himself as an angel of light” (2Cor 11:14). “You will know them by their fruits” (Mt 7:15-20). Jesus did not say “you will know them by their leaves”, which would be their nice words! 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 without personal responsibility and the consequences of living in our egoism. But tomorrow and for eternity there is the worst of slavery! The great majority of priests and bishops today follow men, not God. The great majority of 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! Behold what Pope Saint Gregory the Great writes 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) …” (Pope St. Gregory the Great; Office of Readings; Sunday, Week 27 of OT).
Behold 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).
Behold what 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." (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 far 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 or for Catholics who want to change things; 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!
Even though today we hear very little from pastors warnings to protect the sheep, the saints warn us often of the great danger of different doctrines (1Tim 1:3-5), doctrines of demons (1Tim 4,1-5), diverse and strange teachings (Heb 13:9), false apostles (2Cor 11:13), false brethren (2Cor 11:26), false and suspect doctrines and the beautiful lies of the devil (Saint Ignatious of Antioch; Office of Readings, OT 16, Monday and Tuesday).
How well Saint Paul described the great majority of Catholics today!!! “I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and turning to a different gospel not that there is another gospel, but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to that which we preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again, If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to that which you received, let him be accursed. AM I NOW SEEKING THE FAVOR OF MEN, OR OF GOD? OR AM I TRYING TO PLEASE MEN? If I were still pleasing men, I should not be a servant of Christ. For I would have you know, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not man's gospel. For I did not receive it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came through a revelation of Jesus Christ.” (Gal 1:6-12).
“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 how it is because the majority of people do not want to pay the price of changing their lives according to the revealed Truth of God, and thus 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 do not want to realize, the great devastation caused in changing or ignoring even an “iota” (Mt 5:17-18; 24, 35) of the laws of God which were given for our true good!!! “The whole of man’s history has been the story of DOUR COMBAT with the powers of evil” (CCC 409).
“To be deep in history is the cease to be protestant” – Cardinal Blessed John Henry Newman. Why does “Pope Francis” not present to the Catholics and to the world the WHOLE INTEGRAL HISTORY of Martin Luther, including many very negative facts and fruits of the protestant reformation (or rather protestant rebellion!)?!? What a fundamental example of destructive half truths!?! Why in Amoris Laetitia is it emphasized to allow adults to pursue what they want, adults who have fallen in love with someone who is not their wife or husband AND THEN ALMOST TOTAL SILENCE ABOUT THE GREAT DAMAGE TO THE CHILDREN OF SEPARATED PARENTS, as if adults can ignore their great responsibility of having married another person with whom they had children!?! This is the same underlying philosophy as that of the world, that is, pleasure without responsibility and the only sin is if you are caught regardless of the very negative effects and consequences for other people later! The main message of ‘Humanae Vitae’ (1968) was precisely that, if you separate the pleasurable act of love from life, from responsibility, there will be grave consequences now and later for the people involved and for the whole of society, because the family is the fundamental cell of society! After the pontificate of Pope Benedict XVI it has been underlined rather the “freedom” without responsibility, in the name of love and mercy, to the point that we no longer have to live what we 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”?!? The real fruits of Amoris Laetitia are exactly what Satan wants: confusion regarding the will of God; up to Amoris Laetitia Catholics understood from the words of Jesus and from the teachings of the Church that it is a grave sin to have sex outside of marriage! Why do we not hear about the great harm caused by homosexual acts to individuals and to society from the highest leaders of the Church today, but rather the actual and deceptive promotion of homosexuality in the name of “love” and “mercy”?!? The precious teachings of the Church are easily found in the CCC: “Basing itself on Sacred Scripture which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, tradition has always declared that “HOMOSEXUAL ACTS ARE INTRINSICALLY DISORDERED”. … Homosexual persons are called to chastity…” (CCC 2357-2359; http://www.vatican.va/archive/ccc_css/archive/catechism/p3s2c2a6.htm). As I wrote above: Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI said and wrote many times: “ONLY WHAT IS TRUE CAN ULTIMATELY BE PASTORAL”! This means that if we truly love those with deep-seated homosexual tendencies, and if we want to offer them the real and lasting solution, we must help them to follow the Truth (of God, not the false “truth” of the world) which truly sets us free (Jn 8:32). Otherwise these people will suffer much more afterwards.
When our Lord said, “What therefore God has joined together, let no man put asunder” (Mt 19:6), the disciples said to Jesus: “If such is the case of a man with his wife, it is not expedient to marry” (Mt 19:10). The disciples knew what Jesus was saying. THIS IS HARD! Do you know what the divorce rate was in the USA in 1960? Five percent! Were human beings different then? What was it that made 95% of the marriages stay together until death? Now you look at it and you say who could possibly expect today to stay together until death!?! Even though many who stayed together years ago would have divorced if they lived today, those who stayed together years ago, when the spouse died, they sobbed like babies. So the Church basically says yes, we recognize that those terrible things happen. But unfortunately when you open the door to divorce, EVERYBODY WANTS TO RUN THROUGH IT!
I write to Don Stefano Orsini on September 29, 2018 (attached):
“In a great number of seminaries after the Second Vatican Council, they stopped teaching “Logic” and “Metaphysics” which help a great deal the new priests to be able to think logically so as to be able, as Saint Thomas Aquinas taught, to distinguish between the destructive subtleties of error and the truth. I thank God that I studied philosophy and theology at the Angelicum in Rome, with the Dominicans, where also Pope John Paul II studied, because they put the philosophy and theology of the Church, with St. Thomas, as the base before looking at the other modern philosophers who had offered good as well as bad from the point of view of true Catholic teaching. Also in a great number of seminaries after the Second Vatican Council, they stopped teaching Thomism as the philosophical base; they began to offer the modern philosophers next to that of Saint Thomas as if all were equal, and the young seminarians could choose, in the name of liberty, what they liked without the guidance and the wisdom of the documents of the Church throughout the centuries. This is the same strategy of promoting the lie that all religions are equal which leads people to believe that all “truths”, all opinions are equal, and that the Truth does not exist because they believe that God does not exist and there is nothing after death! “Woe to those who call evil good and good evil” (Is 5:20). I was astonished that a priest from Nigeria, who is studying for the doctorate at Rome and who helps in the parish of Olmo, indicated clearly that each person interprets the truth without reference to Divine Revelation summarized in the documents of the Church and the CCC. But notwithstanding this base of subjectivism or relativism, he did not know what is subjectivism or relativism but insinuated that I had the sickness which is called “objectivism” at our monthly meetings with the Cardinal in May 2018 at lunch time! At that moment I had never before heard of this word “objectivism”, but when I searched for it on the Internet I discovered that it is a new word to criticize those who still believe that the objective Truth exists!?! The objective Truth is God (Jn 14:6) and thus this priest criticized me because I still believe in God!!! We have arrived even to this point in the seminaries and in the Catholic Universities!!!”
“At your celebrations, dinners and meetings, Jesus Christ is not invited because one feels great pressure to not talk about how we can live the Our Father, “THY will be done”, not “MY will be done”! At your meetings it is OK to speak about the truth according to the world, what people want, but not according to God revealed in Divine Revelation, because people do not want to suffer by changing their lives according to God. Jesus is the Truth (Jn 14:6). I will not go to a parochial meeting if Jesus is not welcomed and honored with due respect! For 18 years I have spent more than an hour every day before the Most Blessed Sacrament in the tabernacle. I will not go to meetings where the One with whom I am in love with, my Eucharistic Lord, is not welcomed and honored with due respect!”
The priest who is in charge of the “Voce” (diocesan magazine) asked me, about two years ago, about “non negotiable” things. I am surprised that he did not understand these things as the editor of the “Voce”. In that moment I replied to him by offering an example: “Abortion is not negotiable”!
Why is “Pope Francis” silent about this hidden but powerful destruction of immortal souls, while he is very vocal and authoritative about the environment, or the promotion of UNCONTROLLED immigration as if these things are “non negotiables”, while not warning the souls in the whole world about the true “non negotiable”, which fatally poison the immortal souls? Why does “Pope Francis” not speak about the intrinsic evils, “the non negotiables”, instead of inviting all the religions to unite in One World Religion, putting aside the uncomfortable truths in order to be all together?!? But the uncomfortable truth is Christ crucified!
“The False Pope Will Fall Silent” (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2015/09/the-false-pope-will-fall-silent.html).
“Bergoglio Too Has His Nonnegotiable Principles” (by Sandro Magister; ROME, August 23, 2016; http://chiesa.espresso.repubblica.it/articolo/1351361?eng=y).
"I have never understood the expression 'nonnegotiable values,'” he said in his latest interview. And in a book, his closest collaborator explains why Pope Francis is carefully avoiding a head-on collision with the dominant culture (by Sandro Magister; ROME, March 10, 2014; http://chiesa.espresso.repubblica.it/articolo/1350737?eng=y).
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. You might say that Pope Benedict is using more modern and understandable terminology; in the past the issues that are not negotiable were called intrinsically evil act. The great number of people today in the Church, totally submerged in and surrounded by the atmosphere of relativism, do not like any restrictions at all (“freedom … (without the) essential link with the truth”) which are described in the teachings of the Church on intrinsically evil acts, the issues that are not negotiable.
When I stopped going to a bar with Don Stefano Orsini at Magione where they put a poster, outside in public, of a totally naked woman (2013), Don Stefano Orsini said he would never do that, to stop going to that bar (http://wordbelife.blogspot.it/2013/04/james-59.html). For Don Stefano Orsini, as also for yourself, the first priority is to please the people who do not want to hear a priest who says that IT DOES GREAT HARM TO LOOK AT PORNOGRAPHY (CCC 2354).
AND SO I SAY ALSO TO YOU, DON PAOLO, “I will come to your celebrations when you will have the courage to take the risk of dialoguing with me regarding my objections and reservations according to the truth well summarized in the CCC”! If you do not seek together the truth from God (not from man, but in the CCC) and help others do the same and to live this truth, YOUR CELEBRATIONS ARE EMPTY WITHOUT GOD, the one with whom I am in love and ready to give my life for Him as He gave His life for me! After years of sliding into only seeking to please people, I do not believe that you are capable of understanding these words, as if Father Joe is totally crazy or from another world or from another planet!!! The true saints of God would be horrified at this lack of concern about seeking to discover and live the holy will of God, as is totally normal today almost everywhere in the Church without any remorse or second thoughts; ALL ARE HAPPY AND SPIRITUALLY ASLEEP IN THE CULT OF MAN! If you begin to pass one hour everyday on your knees before our Eucharistic Lord in church and to have the humility to pray the Holy Rosary every day along with frequent confession, slowly you will understand what I am trying to say to you. It would also be interesting if you could explain, in this trial of Father Joe, at the theological level, what I did, said or wrote that was in error at the theological level, after you listen to some of my homilies that I gave at Lisciano Niccone!!! (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLD8heN1LE_ZwZhGo_83OpBE5-T_XpJ_l6; https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLD8heN1LE_Zys5mxiB3BleJhBhr5vsafo; https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLD8heN1LE_Zx-k4pjR31a9TFsL5Zmf1kM).

WHAT WOULD YOU THINK OF A DOCTOR WHO CARED NOTHING ABOUT DISEASE and sends home the patients with grave sicknesses saying to not to worry because THE DOCTOR DOES NOT WANT TO SCARE OR UPSET THE PATIENT. Such doctors would be called quakes, incompetents, guilty of gross professional negligence; they would 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 we think about such priests? If the doctor acts in this way, the person could lose his life; but if the doctor of souls, the priest, does like this, the person could lose his immortal which last for all eternity!
How many priests and bishops today, for the true good of their flock, have the courage to imitate the saints and the prophets and say as Saint John the Baptist, the “greatest born of women” (Mt 11:11), said to king Herod: “It is not lawful for you to have your brother’s wife” (Mk 6:18)? John the Baptist said that Jesus “must increase, but I must decrease” (Jn 3:30); a great number of priests today want to increase before people and thus are not transparent so as to lead people to Christ, the Truth (Jn 14:6), but rather to themselves! So many religious leaders and parents seek to please the people without distinguishing and determining if it is a sin or not, if it truly does good to the person or not. This is false and destructive love; this is misguided compassion! Few religious leaders today have the courage of the first Pope, Peter, the day of the birth of the Church, Pentecost, to say: “You have crucified Jesus” (Acts 4:10), “the author of life” (Acts 3:15), with your grave, mortal sins!
How many times during the Mass do we say: “Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world”? If there is no longer sin, we do not need a Savior who came above all to free us from sin. If the priest never speaks about sin and about the consequences of mortal sin, people no longer come to confess their sins because their spiritual doctor did not help them to realize they have this mortal sickness. Exorcists tell us that the Sacrament of Reconciliation is more powerful to drive away the devil than an exorcism, because Confession is a Sacrament, exorcism is a sacramental.
"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. 9 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).
I do not believe, Don Paolo, 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, Don Paolo, 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, Don Paolo, that you realize, or that you want to realize, that the Body of Christ, the Church, will go through the passion and crucifixion, as did Jesus 2000 years ago, in this period (CCC 675-677; http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2017/09/only-remnant-will-remain-faithful-to.html)! I do not believe, Don Paolo, 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!!! Very few people realize, or want to realize, how much Jesus suffers for our indifference and lack of responding to His immense love for each of us! 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 dialogue with sincere people who are not in agreement with you, or 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!
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).
How does Christ refer to those who do not want to open their eyes to THE SIGNS OF THE TIMES, to those who have embraced the philosophy of life of “ignorance is bliss”? “YOU HYPOCRITES! You know how to interpret the appearance of earth and sky; but why do you not know how to interpret the present time?” (Lk 12:56; Mt 16:3; 24:32-33,51)! “Take heed that no one leads you astray. … many false prophets will arise and lead many astray” (Mt 24:4-9). “Let the reader understand” (Mt 24:15). “There will be false teachers among you …” (2Pt 2:1-3). “None of the wicked shall understand; but those who are wise shall understand” (Dan 12:9-12).
I do not believe that you, Don Paolo, realize, or want to realize, that the first target of Satan is to destroy the Catholic Church!
The Masonic Plan For The Destruction Of The Catholic Church (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2013/11/masonic-plan.html).
After I translated this document from Italian into English and published it on the Web, I have been continually attacked by hackers to close down my computer. My defence has been to launch my computer in “Try Ubuntu” mode from a closed memory stick, with which one can easily reboot the computer to clean out all memory in a few minutes, when they succeed in blocking me after more than an hour on the Web. Two years ago they entered into my computer while I was on the Web and they installed Ubuntu on my hard drive and then they began to delete some files!!! Recently when I post or even comment with a reference to one of my articles in my domain “spir-food.blogspot.com”, Facebook gives me the message: “This link goes against our Community Standards”; for me that means that it goes against the “Community Standards” of Masonry, of the New World Order (NWO)!!! Very recently, all my articles with Scribd are no longer visible and can no longer be found with Google!!!
MANY BELIEVE THE FREEMASONS ARE SIMPLY A CENTURIES OLD CHARITABLE FRATERNITY. However, the Catholic Church has consistently condemned Freemasonry more than any other error in its history because it promotes indifferentism, naturalism, communism, and other dangerous philosophies. Masonry is working to create a world dictatorship in a subtle and hidden way, the New World Order. Masonry has assassinate various presidents of the USA who began to mint money by the government, such as Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy and others. Those who become 33 degree Masons must swear the oath: “Ordo Ab Chao”, meaning Order out of Chaos. “Masonry is a true and specific Satanic Sect. The esoteric studies, up to the 18th degree include spiritism and magic, from the 24th degree one becomes “Militia of Satan”, from the 28th degree to the 33rd degree “Mystical Body of Satan”, this is the reality of Masonry” – testimony of Cesare Ghinelli, ex Mason. “Satan is the only god of our planet” - H. P. Blavatsky (Mason).
The more important and fundamental goal, the first target of Masonry, directed by their head Lucifer, Satan, is to destroy the Body of Christ with Christ as the Head, the Catholic Church. The Holy Spirit is the Soul of the Church and the Church is the soul of the world. That which sustains and gives life to the Body of Christ is the divine Food, the Eucharist. The Eucharist is “the source and summit of the Christian life”.” (Vat. II: LG 11; CCC 1324). This is why they must eliminated the Eucharist, at least in the public churches. … “From the 24th degree one becomes “Militia of Satan”; up to this 24th degree the members of Masonry do not realize who they are really working for!!! (“The Eucharist in the Catacombs”; http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2017/10/the-eucharist-in-catacombs.html).
Eight popes have condemned Masonry since 1738 (https://www.ewtn.com/library/NEWAGE/PACONDEM.TXT).
Most recently: Congregation For The Doctrine Of The Faith: Declaration On Masonic Associations:
“Therefore the Church’s negative judgment in regard to Masonic association remains unchanged since their principles have always been considered irreconcilable with the doctrine of the Church and therefore membership in them remains forbidden. The faithful who enroll in Masonic associations are in a state of grave sin and may not receive Holy Communion.” (November 26, 1983; http://www.vatican.va/roman_curia/congregations/cfaith/documents/rc_con_cfaith_doc_19831126_declaration-masonic_en.html).
Why did immigration begin suddenly at the level of biblical proportions? Who or which groups have caused this and are financing the causes of this immigration at the level of biblical proportions in the USA and in Europe? For what motives? Why are so many very important leaders in the governments and in the Catholic Church promoting “UNCONTROLLED immigration” instead of “CONTROLLED immigration” according to the immigration laws of each country? Controlled immigration is good for each country and also good for the immigrants. Uncontrolled immigration does great harm to the countries and also to the immigrants!

The Rotary Club and the Lions Club are the antechambers of Masonry; some call them the white Masonry.
His Eminence Cardinal Gualtiero Bassetti, the President of the Episcopal Conference, who was made a cardinal by Pope Francis even though the diocese of Perugia was never a diocese of a cardinal, was awarded the XXII “Rotary Award of Umbria” on May 14, 2015 in the Cathedral of Perugia. (http://www.skipintro.it/rotaryperugiaest/consegna-dai-parte-dei-rotary-club-umbri-del-xxii-premio-rotary-umbria-al-presidente-della-conferenza-episcopale-umbra-s-em-cardinale-gualtiero-bassetti/)! A couple of friends of mine who live in Perugia told me that the cathedral of Perugia on that day (May 14, 2015) was full of Freemasons!
You might find it very interesting, using Google, to find very high ranking members of the Rotary Club in the Catholic Church. Another member of the Rotary Club in Buenos Aires since 1999 was Cardinal BERGOGLIO. “The Rotary is of the Masonic inspiration in that it carries forth the Masonic ideals and has ties with the Freemasonry. This is the reason for which Rotary is known as – together with other clubs such as for example the Lions Club International – “White Masonry” ” (In Italian: http://umanitasvegliati.blogspot.it/2014_04_01_archive.html; see also in Italian: http://giacintobutindaro.org/tag/cardinali-massoni/). The Rotary clubs and the Lions clubs are seed beds for future members of the Freemasons.

Cardinal Danneels Admits: “Mafia Club” Opposed to Benedict XVI Plotted Pope Francis Election
Cardinal Danneels: The election of Pope Francis was the fruit of secret meetings that radically liberal cardinals and bishops, organized by Carlo Maria Martini, held for years at St. Gall in Switzerland. This is what is claimed by Jürgen Mettepenningen and Karim Shelkens, the authors of a just published biography of the Belgian Cardinal Godfried Danneels. It must be noted that St. John Paul II published the above papal law in February 1996, the very year that the Sankt-Gallen group was formed. Is the vote of a cardinal, who is automatically excommunicated, canonically valid at a conclave? (“Pope Benedict XVI Forced To Resign”; http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2017/01/pope-benedict-xvi-force-to-resign.html).
Interview with Bishop Schneider - Catholics are NOT called to blind obedience to the Pope (February 17, 2017 (LifeSiteNews):
Quoting St. Thomas Aquinas quoting of St. Augustine, Bishop Schneider recalled that “when St. Paul made a correction to the first pope Peter and he made this publicly not privately.”
“St. Augustine said Peter was so humble and so wise that he accepted this correction,” said Schneider. “He did not say, ‘You are Paul, you are against me. You are heretical. You are schismatic.’ No, he accepted this with gratitude and so should be the Pope in these days.”
“St. Paul was public and even today, as he wrote this in his letter, and his letter is inspired by the Holy Spirit for all generations until the end of the world, they will read the correction of the first Pope as the word of God.” As Paul made the correction of the first Pope public (Gal 2,11), said Bishop Schneider, so too if Paul were alive today “he would use the Internet” as this would be similar to using his letters sent to all churches. “Therefore, there is no difficulty and problem to me that the four Cardinals published their public appeal to the Pope.” (“The Dubia”) (“Soon Oath of Blind Obedience to Bergoglio” (Probably soon after death of Pope Benedict): http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2018/02/soon-oath-of-blind-obedience-to.html).
Not only does “Pope Francis” not dialogue with anyone who is not in agreement with him but the cardinals and bishops and priests who open their eyes in these times of great confusion, IN A SLY AND HIDDEN WAY, ARE PUT TO SILENCE! Hitler burned all the books that might have helped to open up people’s eyes to the truth and to the deception of the Third Reich. Hitler killed as many intellectuals as possible, those who were capable of understanding the deception and then communicating well this deception to others.
Tosatti: Vatican Unofficially Restricts Bishop Schneider, Cardinal Burke (November 6, 2018):
The auxiliary bishop of Astana, formerly bishop of Karaganda [Kazakhstan], Athanasius Schneider, has received a verbal injunction from the Vatican asking him to reduce the frequency of his foreign trips.
Yet another unique aspect of this affair is that Archbishop Schneider only received a verbal notice of this restriction, which was given directly to him by the Secretary of State, Cardinal Pietro Parolin. The Nuncio did not give him anything in writing, no document which could serve as the basis for the bishop taking any sort of legal initiative [to appeal the matter] to the Congregation for Bishops or the Apostolic Signatura which, until the advent of Pope Bergoglio, was the court of instance where lay people, priests, and bishops could make appeal against decisions of ecclesiastical authority which they believed to be unjust.
On the other hand, there is no reason to be surprised by these actions, which are a sign of an ever growing unease with voices that speak freely under a regime which speaks much about dialogue but where in fact any criticism is feared. And in which there is a preference for silent and hidden means of limiting freedom of expression, like the “counsel” given to the American bishops – always only orally, always by a nuncio – to not invite people like Cardinal Burke to their diocese, and, if it is not possible to prevent his coming, not to attend any event at which he is present…
“Behold my doubts as a priest and religious” (Padre Gabrielle Rossi, FAM):
Dear readers, the letter that you find below was sent to me by a priest and religious, belonging to a great congregation present in many countries. It is a significant witness, which brings to light a reality much more diffuse than what might be imagined. … The one who writes expresses in a simple and clear way the motives for which he began to recognize perplexities regarding this pontificate and why he feels that today the Church finds herself in such a situation which requires a decisive decision of conscience.
“I am a religious priest of 72 years old and 32 years in ministry, belonging to the Sons of Merciful Love (founded by Madre Speranza). Since last December I was suspended “a divinis” from being the general superior: I can no longer celebrate Mass in public, nor preach, nor confess. I can only celebrate privately. (And I can still write to Aldo Maria Valli … at least for now) …

In his homily at the Mass preceding the conclave that quickly elected him Pope Benedict XVI, then Cardinal Ratzinger said: “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" (Eph 4:14), 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). (See also: (Vedi anche: Centesimus Annus 44: Cfr. Veritatis Splendor 99, e CCC 2244).
DO YOU BELIEVE DON PAOLO THAT THE DEVIL DOES NOT EXIST, like so many bishops today, or that the devil has converted and now he loves God and wants to serve God?!? Many important exorcists have told us that the most important success of Satan is to convince a great number of people that the devil does not exist, so that the pastors no longer have to protect the flock from the wolf who does not exist, and thus the pastors do not need to study in order to discover the subtle and hidden strategy of the very intelligent wolf who they believe does not exist! It was well organized to interpret badly the Second Vatican Council, in the “spirit of Vatican Two”! “Satan disguises himself as an angel of light” (2Cor 11:14). “Trust in the Lord with all you heart, and do not rely on your own insight” (Prov 3:5).
During the International Spiritual Exercises, at Collevalenza – Sanctuary of Merciful Love (Madre Speranza), June 22-28, 2008, Father Michael Gaughran offered to over 200 priests and to over 10 bishops of the movement these words in a meditation, with the title of the meditation, “The Church, The Movement and the current times” (http://wordbelife.blogspot.it/2014/11/spiritual-food-1411.html):
“[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 (Note 1), 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. (…)”
A fervid communist, Bella Dodd, helped to get in the Catholic seminaries more than a thousand men to destroy the Church from within; four of these were already cardinals 12 years before the Second Vatican Council. Afterwards, under the guidance of Archbishop Fulton Sheen she became Catholic in 1952. This is only one example among many.
“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).
Even though you wrote to me (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2015/05/road-perdition.html):
“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.”
I offer you this:
Saint Michael the Archangel at Garabandal, sent by Our Lady, (Spain, 1965) said: “Many Cardinals, many Bishops and many Priests are on the road to perdition and with them they are bringing many souls”! Three years later 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 sexual relationships 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). Do we believe that we can make it to heaven without imitating Christ crucified to overcome our egoism and to learn to truly love, without being generous to life (“be fruitful and multiply”; Gen 1:28; 9:1,7; 26:24; 38:8-10; Ps 8:6-9; 127:3-5; Sir 17:2-4; Ex 1:7; Wis 9:2; 10:2; etc.)? WE ARE NOW UNDERGOING THE CHASTISEMENT (Mt 24) of Divine Mercy, as the last chance of conversion (Diary of Saint Faustina, no. 1588), for our rejection and great rebellion against God’s holy and saving laws with “a personage not canonically elected, raised to the Pontificate, (who) will endeavor to administer shrewdly to many the mortal poison of his error!” (The “Prophecy” of Saint Francis (Assisi); http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2013/11/prophecy-st-francis.html).
Since you like so much private revelation, here is a message from Our Lady given to Don Stefano Gobbi, on October 29, 1977 (http://our-lady-priests.blogspot.it/):
“You happen to hear of certain brothers of yours who are cultured men and often even experts and masters in theology, who reject those things I tell you, because they sift all my words with their minds, which have already been filled with the richness of their culture. And so they find insurmountable difficulties precisely in those phrases which are so clear to the simple and small.
d My words can be understood and accepted only by one whose mind is humble and well-disposed, who has a simple heart, and whose eyes are clear and pure. When the Mother speaks to her children, they listen to her because they love her. They do whatever she tells them, and thus they grow in knowledge and life.
e THOSE WHO CRITICIZE HER EVEN BEFORE THEY HAVE LISTENED TO HER, and those who reject what she says before putting it into practice, cannot be her children. These people, even though they increase in learning, cannot grow in wisdom and life.
f I tell you this so that you will not be troubled if you hear that even the learned and the teachers find difficulty in my words, while everything appears so clear and simple to whomever I call to be little.”
GOD DOES NOT SEND ANYONE TO HELL; THE PEOPLE DO NOT WANT TO BE WITH GOD – I am in charge, not God! If a person habitually believes to be OK according to his own head and does not want to seek guidance and the truth from his Creator, and does not have gratitude for Him Who gave him everything, this person does not want to be with his Creator now and after death for all eternity. God is love and thus respects our choice. Just as Saint Augustine wrote – God did not ask our permission to create us, but he asks our permission to save us. We are totally free to trust God in order to discover and live the truth ore to trust ourselves and to invent the truth as we want it. This is why after death there are two eternal places, where there is God and where God is not. Freedom! In the name of this false way of understanding the value of freedom, every moral aberration is justified. I find a tremendous amount of rebellion today among Catholics who often say: freedom! No one is forced to be with God for all eternity. Sometimes I say: “I did not write the Ten Commandments; why do you want to kill me?” Certainly the great majority of priests do not ever speak about the laws of God nor about sin and the Four Last Things, so that there is no reaction to the laws of God, because these pastors are “dumb dogs” (Is 56:10) who do not protect the sheep from the very sly wolf.
YOU PROBABLY DO NOT FOLLOW VERY WELL MY THOUGHT BECAUSE YOUR FORMATION WAS NOT CATHOLIC BUT RATHER SUBJECTIVISM even more than the protestants who were founded on subjectivism. “Sola scrittura”, and every person interprets the Scriptures in his own way. The Neocatecumens follow Kiko as their guide, not the CCC, but they say they are Catholics. At least the protestants 400 years ago left the Church, but today the protestants, profoundly in relativism, remain in the Church so as to lead everyone into relativism and to throw out the objective truth which is found in Divine Revelation well explained in the documents of the Church with the guidance of the Holy Spirit in the history of the Church. Behold the period of the great apostasy before the antichrist will manifest himself (2Thess 2:3)!
I told a friend of mine, Flavio, who I spent 10 years with in a Neocatecumenal community, which I later left when I discovered the truth, that if I, Father Joe, refuse to talk to anyone who is not in agreement with me, or with my group or the leader of the group, then Father Joe wants the truth and reality as Father Joe wants it. If I continue in this way, at death, Father Joe will not want to spend eternity with the eternal Truth in heaven, God, and Father Joe will willingly throw himself into the other eternal place where there is not God. I then asked Flavio: “WHY DO THE NEOCATECUMENS REFUSE TO TALK TO FATHER JOE?” Flavio replied: “Oh, I do not know!”, even though after I left the Neocatecumenal Way, also Flavio refuses to talk to me, in particular why I left the Neocatecumenal Way (“The Neocatecumenal Mass”: http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2015/02/the-neocatecumenal-mass.html; “Neocatecumenal Way - a Trojan Horse in the Church”: http://spir-food.blogspot.com/2018/07/neocatecumenal-way-trojan-horse-in.html). The source of truth, that which is right or wrong for the neocatecumens, is Kiko and his catechesis, not the Catechism of the Catholic Church for adults. By now, the neocatecumens, as also for the great majority of Catholics, priests and bishops, are more protestant than the protestants, in subjectivism in following their own heads or their group or the head of their group, instead of following Divine Revelation well explained in the documents of the Church for 2000 years.
When I talked to a few neocatecumens how they do not follow the Liturgical Books regarding the celebration of the Holy Mass, and that they frequently make the exception the rule even though their situation does not correspond to the situation where there is an exception provided, none of them gave any indication that they wanted to discover what God wanted in these situations or what Holy Mother Church instructs us to do regarding the greatest prayer on the face of the earth, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass! They only wanted to interpret everything as they wanted and decided. They do not want to read any article or document that indicates that they are not celebrating the Holy Mass as they should according to the teachings of the Catholic Church. Their first priority is to please man, not God. They no longer realize that the Holy Mass if a gift from God, not the property of man to do as they please with the Holy Mass, the Sacrifice of Calvary! They have put man at the center of the Mass instead of God! The First Commandment: “You shall worship the Lord your God and Him only shall you serve” (Mt 4:10; Ex 20:2-5; Deut 5:6-9; CCC 2083-2141)!!! Thus when they die and are before God, they will not want to be with God because they decided how things should be and did not seek to discover how God wants things to be or how God’s Church, the Catholic Church, instructed Catholics to celebrate the Holy Mass. They trust themselves; they do not trust God nor His Church. They are not Catholic, they are protestant! For Catholics, the truth comes from God through Divine Revelation which is explained in the documents of the Church through the guidance of the Holy Spirit. The Truth does not come from the subjective opinions or the whims of each person or from each so-called “Christian community” or from each charismatic group leader. There are more than 30,000 independent protestant groups in the USA, each believing in the same God, the same Jesus Christ with the same Bible but interpret many passages in the Bible in contradictory ways. Where is the humility to seek the Truth from God in the way God offers us the Truth? “I am in charge, not God!” Lucifer, who became Satan, proclaimed: “I will not serve!” Saint Michael proclaimed: “Who is like unto God?” In heaven there is room for only one God, not two! In the other eternal place everyone wants to command, but the strongest commands, Satan! “Disobedience is the root of every evil” – Saint John Bosco.
I may seem very difficult, especially today, to go against the very widespread current of atheism and rebellion against God and His holy Laws. When the disciples “were amazed at His words”, and even “exceedingly astonished”, at the beginning of their walk with Christ, Jesus did not offer false and empty and destructive compromises as so many leaders in the Church today are offering to the numerous gullible “Christians” as we see on TV. But rather Jesus said: “With men it is impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God” (Mk 10:23-27). If Catholics persevere in staying close to the Holy Sacraments and pray the HOLY ROSARY every day, with all their heart with true humility and genuine love for God, “ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE WITH GOD”!!! We are truly in the period of the great battle between the “woman clothed with the sun” and the “great red dragon” (Rev 12:1-3; http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2016/12/signs-god-vs-satan.html)!
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.” (http://www.vatican.va/holy_father/benedict_xvi/homilies/2010/documents/hf_ben-xvi_hom_20100513_fatima_en.html; http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/fatimas-prophetic-mission-not-complete-pope-declares-on-solemnity/).
In this period of the “great tribulation” (Mt 24:21), “the Church will enter the glory of the kingdom only through this final Passover, when she will follow her Lord in his death and Resurrection” (CCC 677). But “IN THE END MY IMMACULATE HEART WILL TRIUMPH!” - Our Lady of Fatima, Portugal, 1917. There will be fulfilled the Protoevangelium (Gen 3:15) – Saint Louis de Montfort!
Here is a message from Our Lady given to Don Stefano Gobbi, on March 10, 1977 (http://our-lady-priests.blogspot.it/):
a "The confusion grows greater even within the Church and now spreads to every part of the world. The first to be stricken are the priests. Each day, the number of those who allow themselves to be misled by the error which leads to infidelity grows greater and greater.
b In the name of progress, some priests have become nothing but ministers of the world and live according to the world.
c For prayer they have substituted a feverish activity; for mortification, the constant seeking after comfort and pleasures; for holiness, a progressive yielding to sin, especially impurity, which is becoming more and more committed and justified.
d They have become walking corpses, whitened sepulchers who still call themselves priests, but whom my Son Jesus no longer recognizes as such.
e And these are indeed sometimes the most esteemed, those who have succeeded in achieving success and those who have been placed in positions of responsibility.
f Those who have remained faithful are generally the most persecuted, the most ignored, and sometimes intentionally ostracized.
g Thus the darkness spreads, and the smoke of Satan seeks to cover everything; each day the apostasy grows greater.
h How great is your suffering, beloved sons, O priests consecrated to my Immaculate Heart!
i Your suffering will of necessity grow greater as the great apostasy spreads more and more.
j This is your martyrdom of heart for which I am preparing you all. Upon my motherly Heart, let each one offer his interior immolation to the Father.
k Accept, to its very dregs, this hour of darkness. Live this martyrdom of the entire Church, invaded by the night. Remain faithful and confident, now that infidelity becomes more widespread and extolled.
l Say yes to the Father and to your heavenly Mother, who is gently preparing you to live without fear, through those terrible moments which are now awaiting you."
Our Lady warns us about the devastation of activism: “For prayer they have substituted a feverish activity”. The pastors who do not follow the Truth, are interested first of all in the quantity of followers, “to go to the peripheries” instead of first finding a great union with God on Mount Tabor (Moses), in the desert (Saint Anthony Abate), at Subiaco (Saint Benedict), at Laverna (Saint Francis of Assisi), or in Arabia for three years (Saint Paul; Gal 1:16-18); they are not interested in the true spiritual quality of those willing to sacrifice and suffer everything to follow the Truth, Who is Jesus (Jn 14:6), Who is the true source of conversions and true spiritual fruits! These very numerous false pastors and false Christians today, who use religion for their own motives, are happy with mediocrity and seek to lead others with them down the path of mediocrity, and ultimately, the loss of the Truth, of faith and of salvation!
The Church has always regarded the cloistered contemplatives as the highest vocation, the diamonds of the Church, the ones on the front battle lines against the forces of darkness (See: “F)” at: “Likes and Dislikes of the Devil”; http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2014/01/likes-and-dislikes-of-devil.html).
But today the great majority of Catholics, even at the highest levels in the Church, consider this contemplative vocation as a waste of time and energy since they do not see MATERIAL results, as if the invisible reality of God and angels and devils and after death or good or evil (Is 5:20) do not exist. You might read (in Italian) several articles about how today the Vatican is destroying these contemplative congregations in a sly and hidden way:
“Claustrofobia, Di Valli - La Guerra Vaticana Ai Monasteri Di Clausura – Perché” (Marco Tostati, 27-01-2019; http://www.marcotosatti.com/2019/01/27/claustrofobia-di-valli-la-guerra-vaticana-ai-monasteri-di-clausura-perche/);

“Error is being taught and propagated beneath the ambiguous formulas of a new cultural interpretation of truth; the spirit of the world finds welcome; it spreads its malignant influence and leads so many souls to accept sin, to justify it and to live in it” (Our Lady to Don Stefano Gobbi, July 26, 1983).
Jesus said to Saint Faustina (of the Divine Mercy): “YOU WILL PREPARE THE WORLD FOR MY FINAL COMING” (Diary of Saint Faustina, 429). Jesus also said to Saint Faustina: “Woe to them if they do not recognize this time of My visitation” (Diary, 1160).
It was interesting that Pope Benedict XVI INVITED CARDINAL BIFFI TO OFFER THE ANNUAL LENTEN RETREAT for the Pope and the top members of the Vatican (Feb. 27, 2007). “THE ANTICHRIST PRESENTS HIMSELF AS PACIFIST, ECOLOGIST AND ECUMENIST…”
The Servant of God, ARCHBISHOP FULTON SHEEN, said: “The False Prophet will have a religion without a cross. … The Mystical Body on earth today will have its Judas Iscariot and he will be the false prophet. SATAN WILL RECRUIT HIM FROM AMONG OUR BISHOPS.”
You might find another private revelation interesting especially considering the fact that the concentration percentage wise of Masonry at Perugia is just about the highest in all of Italy. In the past many people from Perugia went to see Padre Pio while he was alive. To some of these people he told them that after this period of the “great tribulation” (Mt 24:21) THERE WILL NOT BE LEFT A STONE UPON A STONE AT PERUGIA.
Saint Padre Pio said: "It would be easier for the world to survive without the sun than to do so without the HOLY MASS." This saint also said: “The ROSARY is the weapon for these times”!
I wrote to Don Stefano Orsini (attached):
“If you do not want to be with the absolute Truth in paradise, it is your choice. But to bring with you the souls entrusted to you at Magione for all eternity, this is something more terrible than I can possibly imagine!!! This would be the supreme betrayal for the souls entrusted to you, as do cowards. “It would be better for him to have a great millstone fastened round his neck and to be drowned in the depth of the sea” (Mt 18:6; Mk 9:42; Lk 17:2). “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. He who is a HIRELING and not a shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, sees the wolf coming and leaves the sheep and flees; and the wolf snatches them and scatters them. He flees because he is a hireling and cares nothing for the sheep” (Jn 10:11-13). Jesus told Padre Pio that he (Jesus) suffers much for the bad priests and that he (Jesus) will suffer until end of time!!!”
In your great intelligence and human wisdom naturally private revelation is not important to you nor the words of the saints and not even the words of the Mother of God. Naturally, according to you, Pope John Paul II was not too intelligent, like yourself, and thus he entrusted himself to our heavenly Mother and he went to Fatima a whopping three times!
“Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and BECOME LIKE CHILDREN, you will never enter the Kingdom of heaven” (Mt 18:3). Only one time in all four Gospels Jesus said “Learn from me”: “Learn from me; for I am gentle and lowly in heart” (Mt 11:29-30).
“I thank Thee, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that Thou hast HIDDEN THESE THINGS FROM THE WISE AND UNDERSTANDING and revealed them to babes” (Mt 11:25; Lk 10:21).
“Do not despise prophesying” (1Thess 5:20; 1Cor 14:31).
“Surely the Lord GOD does nothing, without revealing his secret to his servants the prophets” (Amos 3:7).
Speaking about the great responsibility of priests and bishops, the 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! But do not worry brother because a great number of people today believe that the truth is established by the majority of men, not by God!
I tell people: “If Father Joe does not believe that hell exists, then does hell disappear? And so Father Joe is a big proud idiot in his own relativism, because Father Joe is not God!!!”
The exorcist Padre Gabrielle Amorth said to Pope John Paul II fifteen years ago that the majority of the bishops do not believe that the devil and hell exist. Pope John Paul II replied bluntly: “ANYONE WHO DOES NOT BELIEVE IN THE DEVIL DOES NOT BELIEVE IN THE GOSPEL”.
If you want to read about what happen to a priest in France 300 years ago who began to neglect his prayers, read: “A Damned Priest Warns About Hell” (http://spir-food.blogspot.it/2013/12/damned-priest.html).
Dear brother, when you die, explain to God how He is supposed to do things, how He is supposed to communicate the truth, put in place God according to your head. Remember, in heaven there is room for only one God not two! Best wishes for all eternity!
Father Joseph Dwight
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 slide into the convenient half truths (which are worse than lies!), especially to speak only about mercy without “GO AND SIN NO MORE” (Jn 8:11; 5:14)!
FOR UPDATES on some of these fundamental, hidden, and disguised deceptions of the ancient serpent, visit one of my index web sites to see the more important, latest articles:
(as well as the DOCUMENTS REGARDING ECCLESIAL APPROVAL of the TESTIMONY OF GLORIA POLO):
I posted the following on my FACEBOOK pages and in many Catholic groups on Facebook:
Recently I wrote “A Letter to My Bishop” of Perugia, Italy. You might find this letter very interesting because it summarizes many things that are going on in the Catholic Church today, with numerous references both in English and in Italian.
Recently when I post or even comment with a reference to any of my articles in my Web Domain, “spir – food . blogspot . com”, Facebook gives me the message: “This link (specifically: “spir – food . blogspot . com”) goes against our C0mmunity Standards”, that is the “C0mmunity Standards” of Masonry, of the New W0rld 0rder (NW0), which in the end will be much worse than the Hitler’s Third Reich at the world level!!! If, at a certain point, you no longer hear from me by email or on Facebook or my posts on Facebook disappear, you might have an idea of what has happened. For several years, after I translated from Italian to English the article, “The Masonic Plan For The Destruction Of The Catholic Church” (November 10, 2013), I have been continually attacked by hackers; up to now I have succeeded in continuing to publish on the Web by launching my computer in “Try Ubuntu” mode from a closed memory card.
Those who control the world and the Internet today are clamping down more and more especially regarding articles that help people to realize where we are being covertly led. Thus if you would like to read the whole article, or any of my other articles, you might try using Google to find one of my three index Websites, with keywords such as: josephdwight, joseph-dwight-index; giuseppedwight, giuseppe-dwight-indice. At these index Websites you can find this article or you can also use Google to directly find this article with the exact title: “A Letter to My Bishop”. Most of my important articles are published at three different Websites, with Google (blogspot), Microsoft (wordpress) and Scribd.
PLEASE FEEL FREE TO COPY OR PRINT OR POST any of my articles on your own Websites, or send them by email. My only goal is to help save souls for the eternal JOY and GLORY of the One Who gave me everything I have, my Lord and my God! Praise be Jesus Christ! Now and forever! Amen!
The Truth (big “T”), of God, Shall Set You Free (Jn 8:32)! The truth (little “t”), of the world, of the devil and of ourselves, will give you today pleasure, or what you want, but afterwards you will be led toward slavery and destruction here on earth and for all eternity, separated from your eternal Creator!
