Lightning hits St.Peter's Basilica at the Vatican TWICE after Pope Benedict announces his resignation.
For several years this site has requested that His Holiness Benedict XVI
consider resigning. His decision to do so effective Feb 28, 2013, is
historic in that the last pope to resign did so 598 years ago. We wish
him well. We pray for him every day at Holy Mass. He has a wonderful
track record of valuable service to the Church, and for this we ask God
to bless him. By listing problematic actions that Benedict XVI has
taken, it is for the good of the Church and the world that we point out
these significant errors of the Benedict XVI. The very last INFALLIBLE PAPAL DECREE was THE ASSUMPTION OF MARY IN 1950, by His Holiness Pius XII, the same pope who PRIVATELY approvedTHE GOSPEL AS REVEALED TO ME, written by Maria Valtorta. We also ask all Catholics & Christians to pray to the Holy Spirit
to bless and guide the new Pope, His Holiness Francis. The prophecy of
St Malachy is that this pope is "PETER THE ROMAN, WHO WILL STAND AND
FEED THE FLOCK". Will this pope FEED THE FLOCK with the spiritual treasures of the writings of Maria Valtorta with a PUBLIC ENDORSEMENT of her writings? Pope Francis is a humble and learned servant of God,
and we pray for his protection as he shepherds the universal flock
according to the will of God.
BENEDICT REJECTS 1994 CATECHISM (revised 1997) of John Paul II & Canon Law #915 (No Holy Communion for pro-infanticide-abortion legislators) and is even preaching the junk science of man-made global warming, thus endorsing the United Nations global CO2 tax scam (Cap and Tax).
CHARITY IN TRUTH(CLARITY, U.N. TEETH) Anti-papal bull.
How many will swallow it and pretend it is tasty?
They will probably wash it down with Jim Jones' kool-aid.
Benedict's Encyclical ofJune 29, 2009
From Vatican website:VATICAN.VA
67. “In the face of the unrelenting growth of global interdependence, there is a strongly felt need, even in the midst of a global recession, for a reform of theUnited Nations Organization, and likewise ofeconomic institutions andinternational finance, so that the concept of the family of nations can acquire real teeth. One also senses the urgent need to find innovative ways of implementing the principle of the responsibility to protect and of giving poorer nations an effective voice in shared decision-making. This seems necessary in order to arrive at a political, juridical and economic order which can increase and give direction to international cooperation for the development of all peoples in solidarity. Tomanage the global economy; to revive economies hit by the crisis;to avoid any deterioration of the present crisis and the greater imbalances that would result; to bring about integral and timely disarmament, food security and peace; to guarantee the protection of the environment and to regulate migration: for all this, there is urgent need of a true world political authority, as my predecessor Blessed John XXIII indicated some years ago. Such an authority would need to be regulated by law, to observe consistently the principles of subsidiarity and solidarity, to seek to establish the common good, andto make a commitment to securing authentic integral human development inspired by the values of charity in truth. Furthermore, such an authority would need to be universally recognized and to be vested with the effective power to ensure security for all, regard for justice, and respect for rights. Obviously it would have to have the authority to ensure compliance with its decisions from all parties, and also with the coordinated measures adopted in various international forums. Without this, despite the great progress accomplished in various sectors, international law would risk being conditioned by the balance of power among the strongest nations. The integral development of peoples and international cooperation require the establishment of a greater degree of international ordering, marked by subsidiarity, for the management of globalization. They also require the construction of a social order that at last conforms to the moral order, to the interconnection between moral and social spheres, and to the link between politics and the economic and civil spheres, as envisaged by the Charter of the United Nations.”
From the CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH, approved for publication by Saint John Paul II in 1994:
THE CHURCH'S ULTIMATE TRIAL
#675 "Before Christ's second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers. The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth will unveil the "mystery of iniquity" in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth. The supreme religious deception is that of the antichrist, a pseudo-messianism by which man glorifies himself in place of God and of His Messiah come in the flesh."
#676 "The antichrist's deception already begins to take shape in the world every time the claim is made to realize within history that messianic hope which can only be realized beyond history through the eschatalogical judgment. The Church has rejected even modified forms of this falsification of the kingdom to come under the name of millenarianism, ESPECIALLY THE "INTRINSICALLY PERVERSE" POLITICAL FORM OF A SECULAR MESSIANISM."
Is there any individual or social behavior that will NOT be subject to the control of the dystopianUNITED NATIONS ORGANIZATION, that will have “real teeth”, “power”, and “authority to ensure compliance with ITS DECISIONS?”Any intelligent person can see that this means the end of the United States of America, and the end of the sovereignty of all countries in the world, with absolutely no guarantees that the new super government will be any better than the one we already have and can at least control locally, and nationally, if we vote intelligently.
This is nothing but a communist or fascist totalitarian oligarchy.
Benedict should remember the Catechism. After all, he gave his authoritative "IMPRIMI POTEST" to it in 1994 as Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.
"We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think wide cirlces of the American society or wide circles of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the anti-Church, of the Gospel versus the anti-Gospel. This confrontation lies within the plans of Divine Providence; it is a trial which the whole Church, and the Polish Church in particular, must take up. It is a trial of not only our nation and the Church, but in a sense a test of 2000 years of culture and Christian civilization, with all of its consequences for human dignity, individual rights, human rights and the rights of nations." Cardinal Carol Wojtyla, Archbishop of Krakow, Poland, at the Eucharistic Congress, Philadelphia, PA, August 13, 1976 (2 years later elected Pope John Paul II).
Saint John Paul II with Bob Dylan at Eucharistic Congress in 1997
John Paul II's 1995 GOSPEL OF LIFE (EVANGELIUM VITAE) is a profound defense of the sanctity of human life in the face of the culture of death, in stark contrast to
Benedict's CHARITY IN TRUTH which wants "teeth" for the United Nations which is already promoting abortion throughout the world (with US tax dollars via Obama).
Jesus said: "My people, I am giving you a second warning to be wary of as this evil age comes to its height. When My Pope son, John Paul II, is removed from his position, know that his replacement will signal the coming entry of the Anti-Christ. This successor will not be true to Me so be prepared for turmoil in My Church. Some will be consumed with the wine of temporary power and fame. This new leader's power will not last long since he will be smote by My angel. He is the one referred to in the Scriptures of Revelation. So be wary of his reign and do not follow him since he will be an impostor trying to lead the people astray in worshipping the Anti-Christ." (John Leary, PREPARE FOR THE GREAT TRIBULATION AND THE ERA OF PEACE, VOLUME II, Feb. 1, 1995, page 195)
Only a Judas Iscariot pope would sign #67. The pope is NOT naive. He WAS the smartest theologian in the last 400 years, until he fell for signing #67 and #75 of CARITAS IN VERITATE.
Pope signs new encyclical, CHARITY IN TRUTH, including #67, the PARAGRAPH FROM HELL, June 29, 2009.
Benedict meets Obama July 10, 2009. Obama's left hand signed an executive order on Jan. 23, 2009 using US tax money to fund international groups that promote abortion. Obama's left hand in above photo is clasping Benedict's right hand/wrist which signed the notorious Paragraph #67 from hell.
Pope leaving hospital after treatment for his right wrist, slightly fractured in a fall 7/17/09.
#67 will lead to all countries losing their sovereignty, and will lead to the loss of the Catholic Faith by MILLIONS of those who are too weak to remember their Bible, Tradition, and Catechism. Fast or do some sort of penance, and pray, pray, pray and vote intelligently. The rosary of Mary is a powerful prayer. As pope emeritus Benedict has mistakenly endorsed a totalitarian oligarchy of the UN that is currently promoting infanticide, it is a good opportunity to educate friends and family that the Catholic Faith in no way teaches that a One World Government is good, or that it should be commanding armies and be weaponized.
We wish Pope Benedict well in his retirement and thank him for his many years of service to the Church.
We will continue to pray for him as all Catholics do when they attend
Holy Mass. The last INFALLIBLE decree
was in 1950 when Pius
XII taught that Mary was Assumed into heaven body and soul at the end of
her eartlhy life. The following errors of Benedict are listed so that
people will not be led astray
from the clear teaching of the one, holy, Roman (Apostolic) Catholic Church.
In his book LIGHT OF THE WORLD,
page 119, released 11/24/10, Benedict says male prostitutes could use
condoms as a last resort (rather than simply telling them to abstain
completely from fornication as the 6th Commandment of God from Exodus
mandates). Fr. Lombardi, the Vatican press spokesman said the pope also
meant to include female prostitutes. CLICK HERE TO SEE WHAT JESUS SAYS ABOUT THE 6TH COMMANDMENT.
On pages 118-119 of LIGHT OF THE WORLD (Ignatius Press, Nov. 2010), the pope said:
"MEANWHILE THE SECULAR REALM ITSELF HAS DEVELOPED THE SO-CALLED ABC THEORY,
Abstinence, Be faithful, Condom, WHERE THE CONDOM IS UNDERSTOOD ONLY AS A LAST RESORT, WHEN THE OTHER TWO POINTS FAIL TO WORK."
This is a bald-faced lie--
Abstinence ALWAYS WORKS.
BE FAITHFUL ALWAYS WORKS IF THE TWO PARTIES ARE HIV FREE.
Even condoms have natural holes that leak the HIV virus because the virus is smaller than the natural holes in the condom, even apart from the holes caused by manufacturing defect in a certain percentage of the condoms, just
like the air that leaks out of the tires of your car.
pope think people are complete fools to believe his nonsense?
pope should be feeding the sheep good food, not filth & lies. This
garbage coming from a man claiming to be the pope shows he is an
impostor. Jesus asked Peter if he loved Him. Peter said:"You know I
love you." Jesus said "Feed My Sheep." Jesus also said if you love Me,
keep My commandments. This impostor pope MAKES NO MENTION OF THE 6TH
COMMANMENT "Thou shall not fornicate."
On 1/11/10 Benedict expressed disappointment to his diplomatic corps over the failure of the Copenhagen meeting to agree to a UN GLOBAL CO2 TAX,
based on junk science. CO2 is less than 0.04% of the atmosphere, and
the man-made portion of that is less than 10%. Climate change happens
because of the activity of the sun and ocean currents such as the Gulf
Stream. Greenland is mostly snow & ice now, and Iceland is green.
This world-wide tax will provide the TEETH & MUSCLE
to dissolve all national sovereignties under a dystopian United
Benedict advocates all powerful "Teeth" for the UN (which promotes infanticide-abortion) in #67 of his encyclical, CARITAS IN VERITATE ( Charity in Truth), 6/29/09, in direct conflict with #676 of THE CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH approved by John Paul II in 1994. The Catechism specifically warns
against an "INTRINSICALLY PERVERSE POLITICAL FORM OF A SECULAR
MESSIANISM". For those who do not understand what a "secular
messianism" is, it refers to a false promise of a messianic era WITHOUT JESUS.
above three huge capitulations to the enemies of the Church prove John
Leary was right when Jesus said to him that Benedict XVI is an impostor
pope and thus the False Prophet of St. John's REVELATION Chapter 13. Jesus said even the elect might be deceived (GOSPEL OF SAINT MATTHEW 24:24).
said: "My people, I am giving you a second warning to be wary of as
this evil age comes to its height. When My Pope son, John Paul II, is
removed from his position, know that his replacement will signal the
coming entry of the Anti-Christ. This successor will not be true to Me
so be prepared for turmoil in My Church. Some will be consumed with the
wine of temporary power and fame. This new leader's power will not last
long since he will be smote
by My angel. He is the one referred to in the Scriptures of
Revelation. So be wary of his reign and do not follow him since he will
be an impostor trying to lead the people astray in worshipping the
Anti-Christ." (John Leary, PREPARE FOR THE GREAT TRIBULATION AND THE ERA OF PEACE, VOLUME II, Feb. 1, 1995, page 195)
Coat of Arms of Pope Benedict XVI
does the pope have a Muslim wearing a crown on his head on the pope's
coat of arms? The Catholic prophet John Leary has said that Jesus said
that the Antichrist will be a Muslim who has lived in England. The
False Prophet of Revelation, Chapter 13, introduces the Antichrist to
the world. If Benedict endorses a Muslim to be head of the European
Union, this is the Antichrist.
rules for electing the next pope after John Paul II were relaxed by JP2
so that after a two week deadlock of being unable to get a
supermajority 2/3 plus 1 of the cardinals under 80 years old eligible to
vote, a simple majority (over 50%) could decide who the next pope would
be. Mason cardinals could have threatened all the cardinals with being
put on a "blacklist" if they did not give Ratzinger a 2/3 plus 1
supermajority BEFORE THE TWO WEEK PERIOD was reached, by simply claiming
they had the votes to elect Ratzinger with a simple majority AFTER
the two week deadlock. After Benedict was chosen, he reversed the new
rule BACK TO THE OLD RULE OF 2/3 PLUS 1, meaning that ONLY A
SUPERMAJORITY could elect the pope after Benedict. Why were the rules
bent for BENEDICT XVI? Cardinals are sworn to secrecy about papal
elections, so these questions are very hard to answer. Benedict is
committing not bloopers, not blunders, but HUGE DECEPTIONS that affect
all people on earth,
not just Catholics. The Roman Catholic Church has had false
claimants to the papacy before, so these questions are very important
and APPROPRIATE TO ASK.
condoms have natural holes much larger than the HIV virus(apart from
any manufacturing defects) the REAL reason millions of condoms were
given to Africa was to SPREAD AIDS, not stop it, so Africa would be
depopulated and multinational corporations could take Africa's rich
resources. By flipping on condoms Benedict has joined the ranks of the
genocidal depopulators just as he promotes "teeth" for a United Nations
of preaching the Good News of the Gospel, B16 is preaching BAD NEWS:
TAXES AND TEETH FOR THE UN & GENOCIDAL CONDOMS. Does he have to grow
horns to recognize him as the false prophet, beast like a lamb, in St.
John's REVELATION 13:11 ?
One, Holy, Roman (Apostolic) Catholic Church is a Divine institution,
and even an impostor pope or a bad pope cannot destroy the Church, the
Mystical Body of Christ, of which Jesus Christ Himself is the head.
DO ASK. DO TELL
It has been reported that Cardinal Ratzinger tried in vain to stop Saint John Paul II from inviting Bob Dylan to sing at the Eucharistic Congress held in Bologna, Italy, attended by 300,000 in 1997.
Bob played 3 songs: Knockin' on Heaven's Door, A Hard Rain's A-Gonna Fall, and Forever Young.
But maybe it was the song WITH GOD ON OUR SIDE, that Dylan wrote & recorded in 1964, nineteen years after World War II, with these lyrics that so upset Cardinal Ratzinger:
The Second World War came to an end.
We forgave the Germans and then we were friends.
Though they murdered six million in the ovens they fried,
The Germans now too have God on their side.
Is a resurgent Germany the "fatally wounded head" that heals in Revelation 13:3?
Bob Dylan was influenced by and greatly admired Woody Guthrie.
Saint John Paul II, at the Eucharistic Congress, addressed Bob Dylan in front of the huge audience and said:
"You say the answer is blowing in the wind, my friend. So it is, but it is not the wind that blows things away, it is the breath and life of the Holy Spirit, the voice that calls and says, Come! You ask how many roads
a man must walk down before he becomes a man. I answer: there is ONLY ONE ROAD for man, and it is the road of Jesus Christ, who said, 'I am the Way and the Life.'"
Benedict's road of a dystopian UN "with teeth" will lead to spiritual and physical death for Billions, and hell on earth. Cardinal Ratzinger used to have lunch with John Paul the Great every Friday. You would think something would have rubbed off. Judas Iscariot lived with Jesus for several years. How can you explain it? Peter denied Our Lord, but he repented. Will Benedict repent, or just move on to some politically powerful position with teeth?
Another stanza from WITH GOD ON OUR SIDE:
Through many a dark hour I've been thinkin' about this
That Jesus Christ was betrayed by a kiss
But I can't think for you, you'll have to decide
Whether Judas Iscariot had God on his side.
Pope Benedict wearing white pallium with red crosses representing Jesus' wounds with nails. The pallium is made of pure lamb's wool. The two pointed miter hat, worn by popes and bishops, signifies amplification of the spiritual message, coming symbolically from the pointed ram's (male sheep) horn (shofar) blown in Jewish services. Jewish high priests also wore the miter.
"Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep's clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thistles? So, every sound tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears evil fruit. A sound tree cannot bear evil fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will know them by their fruits." Matthew 7:15-20.
"Then I saw a second beast; it emerged from the ground; It had two horns like a lamb, but made noise like a dragon. This second beast was servant to the first beast, and extended its authority everywhere, making the world and all its people worship the first beast, which had had the fatal wound and had been healed." Revelation 13:11-12.
How much damage to souls will Benedict do until he repents or resigns? How many faithful cardinals, bishops, priests, deacons & laity will request or demand that Benedict repent or resign?
"...there must be factions among you in order that those who are genuine among you may be recognized."First Corinthians 11:19
"The elite want 80% of us dead see #1" and "9-11 inside job." #1 on slab lies saying "Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature." They could not speak the truth that they really meant: Kill 6 billion now to get under 500,000,000. #2: "Guide reproduction wisely improving fitness..." (that means Nazi eugenics--the imperfect will be murdered or sterilized--for the goal of a super-race).
Commandments of Satan
1/ Depopulation. Fastkill (man-made epidemics, war, abortion, euthanasia).
Slowkill (genitically modified food, vaccines with mercury, cancer causing pesticides and food additives, flouride added to drinking water, jet chemtrails/contrails with barium and aluminum).
2/ Eugenics (controlling hereditary factors in mating). Sterilization.
3/ Forcing a one-world language to dominate the planet (opposite of God's confusing the languages in Genesis to prevent one-world government by facsist or communist tyrants).
4/ Faith, Tradition (religion) subservient to the " TEMPERED REASON" of the ELITE slavemasters who want 90% of humanity DEAD, TO MAKE IT EASY TO ENSLAVE THE 500 MILLION STILL LEFT LIVING.. These same ELITE control the world banking industry having engineered insufferable DEBT to crash currencies and economies for the GOAL OF A ONE-WORLD CURRENCY TO ESTABLISH TOTAL FINANCIAL CONTROL. Next it is NO CURRENCY with the implantation of the computer "chip" in the right hand or forehead to buy or sell (read Revelation chapters 13 & 14).
Vatican I, July 18, 1870. DOGMATIC CONSTITUTION ON THE CHURCH OF CHRIST.
Chapter 4. The Infallible Magisterium of the Roman Pontiff.
"And so We, adhering faithfully to the tradition received from the beginning of the Christian faith, to the glory of God, our Savior, the elevation of the Catholic religion and the salvation of Christian peoples, with the approbation of the sacred Council, teach and explain that the dogma has been divinely revealed: that the Roman Pontiff, when he speaks ex cathedra, that is, when carrying out the duty of the pastor and teacher of all Christians in accord with his supreme apostolic authority he explains a doctrine of FAITH OR MORALS to be held by the universal Church, through the divine assistance promised him in blessed Peter, operates with that infallibility with which the Redeemer wished that His Church be instructed in defining doctrine on FAITH AND MORALS; and so such definitions of the Roman Pontiff from himself, but not from the consensus of the Church, are unalterable.
But if anyone presumes to contradict this definition of Ours, which may God forbid: let him be anathema."
The last time a pope "defined and bound" an Infallible Dogma was the Assumption of Mary in 1950. As you can clearly see, two things are required: 1/ A definition regarding FAITH AND MORALS. 2/ A CLEARLY EXPRESSED "binding authority". For those who do not know what "anathema sit" means, it is Latin for "let him be condemned." For Pius XII's 1950 infallible statement, this binding authority is expressed as: "...if anyone...should dare either to deny this (Mary's Assumption body and soul into Heven), or voluntarily call into doubt what has been defined by Us, he should realize that he has cut himself off entirely from the Divine and Catholic Faith."
As if to underline the pope's purely SPIRITUAL authority outside the one square mile of Vatican City where he reigns as absolute monarch, the vast Papal States in central Italy were stripped from the pope's temporal authority in 1870. Benedict's promoting of giving teeth to the U.N. is a terrible act of apostacy, similar to the itch Judas Iscariot had for Jesus to be a political king with temporal power. This is just the tip of the iceberg. You can expect even crazier things to come from this apostate pope if he does not quickly rescind #67 or resign. The pope is of course free to entertain political opinions. But to advocate them in a solemn Papal Encyclical, shrouding them with a phony authority is reprehensible. The pope is NOT NAIVE. He KNOWS his words will have a corrosive effect on world politics, destroying sovereignties and militarizing a United Nations championing infanticide (abortion) thoughout the world. The FIRST people an all-powerful armed UN will arrest and kill are faithful Cardinals, Bishops, priests, and laity who protest the UN's infanticide. There are only some 100,000 + U.N. troops now, but obviously the pope is calling for a much larger international force to disarm countries in a "timely" manner (that means NOW). To pretend the UN will abandon its abortive mentality is purely wishful thinking that ignores the present reality.
1983 Code of Canon Law
"Those who are excommunicated or interdicted after the imposition or declaration of the penalty and others who obstinately persist in manifest grave sin are not to be admitted to Holy Communion." Canon 915.
Why didn't Benedict use his authority with spiritual "teeth" to replace bishops who let unrepentant pro-infanticide (abortion) legislators be admitted to Holy Communion? The obvious answer is he is a weak bark, no bite on this issue. And he wants "teeth" for a U.N. PROMOTING ABORTION!!!! Blasphemous hypocrisy.
"DO NOT GIVE DOGS WHAT IS HOLY; AND DO NOT THROW YOUR PEARLS IN FRONT OF PIGS, OR THEY MAY TRAMPLE THEM AND TURN ON YOU AND TEAR YOU TO PIECES." Matthew 7:6
OBLIGATIONS AND RIGHTS OF ALL THE CHRISTIAN FAITHFUL
"In accord with the knowledge, competence and preeminence which they possess, they have the right and even at times a duty to manifest to the sacred pastors their opinion on matters which pertain to the good of the Church, and they have a right to make their opinion known to the other Christian faithful, with due regard for the integrity of faith and morals and reverence toward their pastors, and with consideration for the common good and the dignity of persons." Canon 212.3
In spring of 1972 a complaint was made of many modernist heretical footnotes and introductions to books of the NEW AMERICAN BIBLE 1970. Not a single bishop or representative of the Vatican responded personally to the complaint, although the ordinary of the diocese did defend the traditional teaching of the Church on Holy Scripture in the diocesan newspaper, and the auxiliary bishop referred the complainant to a local bliblical scholar who was a priest. To the complaint were attached, not the worthless opinions of the layperson who found the modernist heresies, but simply the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church regarding Sacred Scripture as contained in the documents of Church Councils and Papal Encyclicals regarding divine revelation. After 14 years, the Church acted by suppressing republicaton of the erroneous 1970 edition, and authorized the new 1986 edition of the New Testament of the New American Bible, DELETING 90% OF THE MODERNIST HERETICAL FOOTNOTES. An Italian Valtorta devotee had even cut with a scissors the modernist heretical footnotes out of her New American Bible 1970. On June 29, 1972, Paul VI said: "From some fissure the smoke of Satan has entered the temple of God."
"O bliss of that day when the conspiracies, retaliations, struggles of this earth, of Satan, of the flesh will be over forever! My Church will then be made up of real Christians, in that time, in the next-to-last day. Few, as in the beginning, but holy as in the beginning. The Church will end in holiness as it began in holiness. Liars, betrayers, idolaters will stay outside, those who on the last day will imitate Judas and sell their souls to Satan, harming Christ's Mystical Body. In them the Beast will have its replacements for its last war.
And woe betide those in Jerusalem (the Church), in the end times, who become guilty of such a sin. Woe betide those who in Jerusalem will exploit their authority for human advantage. Woe betide those who openly disown God and those who disown Him by their actions, I will make no difference. And in truth I tell all of you, with the sorrow of a sublime Founder, that at the last hour three quarters of MyChurch will disown Me, and I will have to cut them off from the tree trunk as dead branches infected by an unclean leprosy.
But you who will remain in Me, listen to Christ's promise. Faithfully and lovingly wait for Me and I will come to you with all My gifts. With the gift of gifts: Myself. I will come to redeem and heal. I will come to floodlight the darkness, defeat it and rout it. I will come to teach people to love and worship the Eternal God, the Lord Most High, the Holy Christ, the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit. I will come to bring you not the peace of this world, the endless destroyer of Peace, but the Peace of the Kingdom that does not die.
Exult, O My faithful servants. This is what the mouth that does not lie tells you. You will no longer have to fear any evil because I will put an end to the time of evil, I will anticipate this end out of compassion for My blessed ones.
Exult especially you, O today's beloved of Mine. For you the coming of Christ and His embrace of glory will be even more solicitous. For you the gates of the City of God are already opening and your Savior is coming out to greet you and give you real Life.
Yet a little more and I will come for you. As I did for My friend Lazarus, I will call you one by one: 'Come out!' Out of this life on earth which is a grave for the spirit jailed in the flesh. Into Life, into Heaven's freedom.
Call Me with your faithful love. Let it be the blaze that melts the chains of the flesh and gives the spirit the freedom to come quickly to Me. Utter the best cry ever written by a man: 'Come, Lord Jesus!'" (Revelation 22:20)
In the second sentence of #67, the pope speaks of "giving poorer nations an effective voice in shared decision-making." The three most populous (and relatively poorer) Catholic countries in the world are Brazil, Mexico, and the Philippines with a combined 338 million Catholics and only 8 Cardinal Electors (only cardinals under 80 years old can vote in a papal conclave).
The next three largest Catholic countries, USA, Italy, and France (relatively far richer) have a combined Catholic population of 166 million, with a whopping 38 Cardinal Electors. If Benedict was serious about giving poorer nations in the Church an "effective voice in shared decision making", Brazil, Mexico and the Philippines should have more than double the Cardinal Electors that the US, Italy, and France have, because they have more than double the number of Catholics. That number would be at least 76 Cardinal Electors. Benedict has been pope for over 4 years and has limited them to only 8 Cardinal Electors. His words appear hollow and disingenuous as proven by his own actions (and inaction) where he has full authority to correct the glaring imbalance. If we had a pope elected by a more representative college of cardinals, perhaps that new pope would not be pushing to give a United Nations TEETH to push sterilization and abortion on the more populous poorer countries!!!!! At least you can impeach a bad president. How do you convince a bad pope to resign due to his abysmally poor judgment? The Church has survived bad popes before, and because it is a Divine Institution, even a bad pope cannot destroy it. Has the Tribulation now begun?
75. "Paul VI had already recognized and drawn attention to the global dimension of the social question. Following his lead, we need to affirm today that the social question has become a radically anthropological question, in the sense that it concerns not just how life is conceived but also how it is manipulated, as bio-technology places it increasingly under man's control. In vitro fertilization, embryo research, the possibility of manufacturing clones and human hybrids: all this is now emerging and being promoted in today's highly disillusioned culture, which believes it has mastered every mystery, because the origin of life is now within our grasp. Here we see the clearest expression of technology's supremacy. In this type of culture, the conscience is simply invited to take note of technological possibilities. Yet we must not underestimate the disturbing scenarios that threaten our future, or the powerful new instruments that the “culture of death” has at its disposal. To the tragic and widespread scourge of abortion we may well have to add in the future — indeed it is already surreptiously present — the systematic eugenic programming of births. At the other end of the spectrum, a pro-euthanasia mindset is making inroads as an equally damaging assertion of control over life that under certain circumstances is deemed no longer worth living. Underlying these scenarios are cultural viewpoints that deny human dignity. These practices in turn foster a materialistic and mechanistic understanding of human life. Who could measure the negative effects of this kind of mentality for development? How can we be surprised by the indifference shown towards situations of human degradation, when such indifference extends even to our attitude towards what is and is not human? What is astonishing is the arbitrary and selective determination of what to put forward today as worthy of respect. Insignificant matters are considered shocking, yet unprecedented injustices seem to be widely tolerated. While the poor of the world continue knocking on the doors of the rich, the world of affluence runs the risk of no longer hearing those knocks, on account of a conscience that can no longer distinguish what is human. God reveals man to himself; reason and faith work hand in hand to demonstrate to us what is good, provided we want to see it; the natural law, in which creative Reason shines forth, reveals our greatness, but also our wretchedness insofar as we fail to recognize the call to moral truth."
Your Holiness, neither you nor today's highly disillusioned culture, have THE ORIGIN OF LIFE IN YOUR GRASP. God is the origin of life. You are sounding more like a mad scientist than a shepherd of souls. You obviously understand the disturbing scenarios that threaten our future with the powerful new instruments of the culture of death, so your advocating "teeth" for a U.N. now promoting infanticide (abortion) and sterilization, is irreconcilable with Catholic Dogma.
Your Holiness, please let us have more REASON guided by the infallible truths of Divine Revelation in Holy Scripture and Tradition, and less WRETCHEDNESS in your encyclical. Please rewrite it or resign. If you are taking performance enhancing drugs that prolong your life, and yet have affected your reasoning, we forgive you even if you do not repent for having betrayed the Truth. And yes, Catholics pray for you. We are commanded by Our Lord Jesus Christ to pray for our enemies, and those who wish to persecute us with U.N. "teeth" (Matthew 5:44). We also forgive you for being toothless in the fight against the infanticide/abortion holocaust, by not replacing bishops who allow unrepentant pro-abortion legislators to receive Holy Communion, and refusing to enforce canon law (#915). Will God forgive you? (Of course, if you repent).
St. Don Bosco's vision of how the pope steers the Church to safety during a great sea battle.
On May 30, 1862 , Don Bosco recounted that in a dream he had seen an immense sea on which a great many ships were arranged for battle against a larger and taller ship. He also saw others which were defending the tall ship. Here are his words:
"In the midst of this endless sea, two solid columns, a short distance apart, soar high into the sky. One is surmounted by a statue of the Immaculate Virgin, at whose feet a large inscription reads:" 'Auxilium Christianorum' ('Help of Christians') . The other, far loftier and sturdier, supports a Host of proportionate size, and bears beneath it the inscription: 'Salus credentium' ('Salvation of believers').
"The flagship commander - the Roman Pontiff- standing at the helm, strains every muscle to steer his ship between the two columns, from whose summits hang many anchors and strong hooks linked to chains. The entire enemy fleet closes in to intercept and sink the flagship at all costs. They bombard it with everything they have: books and pamphlets, incendiary bombs, firearms, cannons. The battle rages ever more furious. Beaked prows ram the flagship again and again, but to no avail, as, unscathed and undaunted, it keeps on it course. At times, a formidable ram splinters a gaping hole in its hull, but immediately, a breeze from the two columns instantly seals the gash.
"Meanwhile, enemy cannons blow up; firearms and beaks fall to pieces; ships crack up and sink to the bottom. In blind fury, the enemy takes to hand-to-hand combat, cursing and blaspheming. Suddenly the Pope falls, seriously wounded. He is instantly helped up, but struck a second time, dies. A shout of victory rises from the enemy, and wild rejoicing seeps their ships. But no sooner is the Pope dead than another takes his place. The captains of the auxiliary ships elected him so quickly that the news of the Pope's death coincides with that of his successor's election. The enemy's self-assurance wanes.
"Breaking through all resistance, the new Pope steers his ship safely between the two columns; first, to the one surmounted by the Host, and then the other, topped by the statue of the Virgin. At this point, something unexpected happens. The enemy ships panic and disperse, colliding with and scuttling each other.
"Some auxiliary ships, which had gallantly fought alongside their flagship, are the first to tie up at the two columns. Many others, which had fearfully kept far away from the fight, stand still, cautiously waiting until the wrecked enemy ships vanish under the waves. Then they too head for the two columns, tie up at the swinging hooks and ride safe and tranquil beside their flagship. A great calm now covers the sea. "
Those who criticize the pope are usually considered foolish ultra-liberals who want women priests (or practicing-gay-lifestyle priests) or a host of other liberal biases incompatible with Catholic doctrine. Or, they are considered foolish ultra-conservatives who don't believe we have had a real pope since Pius XII, or that the Novus Ordo Mass is invalid (with or without a majority of American Bishops' approving Vatican corrections of many important translation errors Roman Catholics in America have had to painfully or ignorantly endure for over 40 years).
His Eminence, Most Reverend Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, to his everlasting credit as head of the CDF, faithfully held to the principle that what we believe TODAY as Catholics, is the SAME FAITH that Jesus taught the Apostles. The Church is open to the voice of the Holy Spirit, but never makes belief in even APPROVED PRIVATE REVELATION binding under pain of sin. It is PRECISELY when the Holy Father CONFLICTS with Scripture & Tradition, that he opens himself up to just criticism. Pope Pius XI blessed the Italian arms that went to murder many Ethiopians in the 1930's, in Italy's quest of a colonial empire. He later regretted it, and recovered in time to warn of Hitler's crimes. However, the popes have never apologized to Ethiopians for that sad historical chapter.
Please pray for His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI. Not only is he getting bad advice. He is agreeing with it.
16 years to correct a New American Bible that had been riddled with modernist heretical errors?
The reference to the alarm for the "very future of... island states" is that the pope is buying into the lie that man-made CO2 is causing the oceans to rise. Thus the phony need for CO2 taxes, which will actually supply the TEETH and MUSCLE for the UN to dissolveall sovereignties in the name of a utopia which will actually usher in a genocidal-depopulation plan to reduce the world to 5 hundred million inhabitants (down form 6.7 BILLION---over 90% of humanity to be killed). The words of Chief Justice John Marshall now speak louder than ever: "THE POWER TO TAX IS THE POWER TO DESTROY."
Benny has lost all 16 of his marbles, not because he is naive, but because he has flipped and is perhaps now already working for the Antichrist (Lord Maitrai--"I ART I AM" backwards-- A Muslim in London, England--his frontman is Benjamin Creme). The Muslims believe that their Messiah is greater than Jesus.
After the Garabandal Illumination, Maitrai will change his name and try to take credit for the Garabandal Illumination to deceive those who will fall for the Antichrist and his computer chip in the hand or head to buy and sell (which will result in their death or slavery, a hell on earth, and eternal hellfire). See St. John's REVELATION, CHAPTER 13.
God's faithful remnant, the Church, will be led to refuges by guardian angels to be protected and provided for by God, away from the antichrist and his agents. In Maria Valtorta's NOTEBOOKS 1943, on July 23, Jesus told Maria that the "WOMAN" IS THE CHURCH whom God promises TWICE to protect in REVELATION 12 . When St. John wrote REVELATION, Mary was already assumed into heaven.
Save America. Abolish the Federal Reserve. Its not federal and there is no reserve. It is a privately owned banking cartel impoverishing America.
"The Central Bank is an institution of the most deadly hostility existing against the principles and form of our Constitution. . . . I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies. Already they have raised up a monied aristocracy that has set the Government at defiance. The issuing power should be taken from the banks and restored to the people to whom it properly belongs. If the American people ever allow the banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers occupied." - Thomas Jefferson
This rise of sea level will supposedly take place over a 30 day time-frame, and would be caused by a comet coming close enough to the earth to change its axis. There are many more million cubic miles of water girded about the earth's equatorial belt due to the earth's rotation in comparison with other non-equatorial ocean-areas, and the more the axis of the earth changes, more water will dislodge from the belt, along with new polar ice melting water, making the sea level rise approximately 100 feet or more in many parts of the world. That explains why the CIA is moving its operational headquarters from low sea level Virginia to high above sea level Denver. Retired Naval vets (& Chicago police retirees) are moving to the Ozarks in Missouri & Arkansas (800-1000 feet above sea level). He indicated the comet would be coming from the Southern Hemisphere of the sky.
A prominent American prophet who temporarily cannot publish new prophetic messages at the current time due to various reasons, has said that the Garabandal Warning (Illumination of Consciences) will coincide with a comet coming close to the earth within the orbit of the moon. The prophet said the comet would be coming from the other side of the sun, so amateur astronomers may only see it 72 hours before near earth approach and spread the news on the internet. (Obummer asked for and recieved authority to unplug the internet in case of an Obummer-defined "emergency"). This might indeed be the same comet that could trigger a rise in sea levels. John Moore speaks of a 30 day time-frame for sea levels to rise. The prophet recently spoke of a 6 WEEK TIME FRAME AFTER THE WARNING before the Antichrist comes to power, to evangelize family & friends and all not to take the implanted computer "chip" in the hand or head to buy and sell. A rise of the sea level of 100 feet would certainly cause a famine in many parts of the world. Those who have the resources should store at least several months of food and water to live though such an emergency.
Christians, when they have lived up to the highest ideals of their faith, have defended the weak and vulnerable and worked tirelessly to protect and strengthen vital institutions of civil society, beginning with the family.
We are Orthodox, Catholic, and evangelical Christians who have united at this hour to reaffirm fundamental truths about justice and the common good, and to call upon our fellow citizens, believers and non-believers alike, to join us in defending them. These truths are:
The sanctity of human life (This means no abortion or euthanasia or destruction of human embryos for "research")
The dignity of marriage as the conjugal union of husband and wife. (This means marriage is only the union of a man and a woman.)
The rights of conscience and religious liberty. This is guaranteed by the First Amendment to the US Constitution, but legislators are trying to trash the Bill of Rights.
Inasmuch as these truths are foundational to human dignity and the well-being of society, they are inviolable and non-negotiable. Because they are increasingly under assault from powerful forces in our culture, we are compelled today to speak out forcefully in their defense, and to commit ourselves to honoring them fully no matter what pressures are brought upon us and our institutions to abandon or compromise them. We make this commitment not as partisans of any political group but as followers of Jesus Christ, the crucified and risen Lord, who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life.
Do not vote for any member of Congress who will not support these basic principles. The 2010 Congressional elections are crucial to taking our country back from the marxists and fascist oligarchs who are bent on trashing it. It does not matter what political party they call themselves. If they do not support these basic principles without apology, without exception, and without compromise, they should be defeated at the voting booth, and replaced with legislators who will protect our basic God-given rights. You EXERCISE your rights. They are not given to you by a "godvernment."
Jesus said: “My people, your government, under a plan called ‘Project Clover
Leaf’, has solicited commercial airlines to have their jet airplanes assist in
spreading chemtrails. The one world people are using chemtrails supposedly to
stop some of the sun’s rays from warming the earth. This is their cover story,
but their real reason to spread chemtrails is to reduce people’s immune system
so many can be killed by their coming pandemic virus. The one world people have
as their goal the premise of reducing the population which was brainwashed into
their minds by Satan. The upper levels of the one world people actually worship
Satan, and they get their working orders from him. Satan is behind the killing
of man in the death culture that promotes abortion, euthanasia, wars, and
killing of people by laboratory created viruses. Many people are suffering upper
respiratory diseases as a result of the chemtrails. The aluminum oxide being
spread in the chemtrails is also causing a higher level of Alzheimer’s disease
in bad memory problems. I have asked My faithful to use Hawthorn, herbs, and
vitamins to build up their immune systems and counter the effects of the
chemtrails on the body. Also, avoid taking any flu shots that could ruin your
immune system. Pray that My people will be protected and healed from these
viruses by looking at My luminous cross at My refuges.” JohnLeary.comMessage of January 13, 2012.

horror, My beloved; but how very, very much it still has to increase to

has been mixed into man's bread, wine, and sleep, a very, very great deal
more wormwood must still drip into your waters, onto your tables, and onto your

when the thunder of the seventh trumpet is finished and the horror of the
seventh scourge is fulfilled,without the race of Adam recognizing
Christ as King, Lord, Redeemer, and God, and, with the invocation of his Mercy,
his Name, in which there is salvation, I, by My Name and by My Nature, swear
that I shall halt that instant in eternity. Time will cease, and the Judgment
will begin. The Judgment eternally separating Good from Evil after millennia of
coexistence on earth.
"Good will return to
the fount from which it came. Evil will fall to the place to which it was
previously cast down at the moment of Lucifer's rebellion and from which it
emerged to disturb the weakness of Adam in the seduction of the senses
and of pride.
"Then the mystery of God will be
fulfilled. Then you will know God. Every man on earth, from Adam to the last man born, gathered together like grains of sand on
the dune of the eternal beach, will see God the Lord, Creator, Judge, and

loved, cursed, followed, mocked, blessed, insulted, served, and escaped from.
You will see Him. You will then know how much He deserved your love and how meritorious it was to serve Him.

themselves in loving and obeying Him! Oh, the terror of those who have been his
Judases, his Cains, those who have preferred to follow the Adversary and Seducer
instead of the Word made man, in whom there is Redemption – the Christ: the Way
of the Father; Jesus: the most holy Truth; the Word: true Life."

Quote from Monday, June 15, 1998, from John Leary's book PREPARE FOR THE GREAT TRIBULATION AND ERA OF PEACE, Volume XI, pp. 87 & 88:
"...My people, today you are comfortable in your Churches, but tomorrow they will be taken away by the Antipope. When My Pope Son, John Paul II is removed from his office, the Antipope will dominate and control the property of all of the Roman Catholic Churches. The priests and the laity will have to decide whether to go with the evil pope or split to be with the faithful remnant and hold underground Masses, My faithful will have to leave their comfortable churches because they will be corrupted by false teachings. You are being forewarned that the Antipope will worship the Antichrist and violate all of the teachings of My Apostles. You will be able to tell he is evil, when he changes the laws and rules of My Church. You are seeing the cliffs of some hills because not long after this split in My Church, you will have to flee for our lives. As the persecution of religion worsens by the Antichrist's agents, you will have to have your Masses out in the wilderness or in caves for secrecy. Have faith that I will remain with you even in spiritual communion for those who ask. Seek your guidance in My help and that of your guardian angels and you will be cared for even during this tribulatrion."...
"As a result of a world depression and a world famine, the United Nations will call for a global government to restore order. During a time of martial law, a One-World religion will be imposed, which will be a means for religious persecution to force everyone to worship the Beast and take his mark on their body. All those who refuse this mark will be outlaws and liable for death. The Anti-Pope, who will replace John Paul II, will assist in forming this One-World religion of false gods. Once the United Nations controls the world, the Ant-Christ will assume full control and eliminate ALL of the current leaders. Message to John Leary, April 6, 1999.
"...for false Christs and false prophets will arise and produce signs and portents to deceive the elect, if that were possible. You therefore must be on your guard. I have forewarned you of everything."Mark 13:22-23
When told that Stalin had asked how many troops the pope has, Pope Pius XII told the diplomat to say to Stalin: "Tell my son Joseph that he will see my troops in heaven."
Most Catholics DON'T UNDERSTAND PAPAL INFALLIBILITY. They never took the time to read what Vatican I defined in 1870. That is why #67 of CHARITY IN TRUTH is so dangerous, because people think that if the pope said it (or wrote it or signed it), it must be true. You know that Jesus said in the Gospel, that even the elect might be deceived, if that were possible (Mark 13:22-23). Is often erroneously said that there are only 2 infallible papal definitions, and that they are both about Mary--The Immaculate Conception and the Assumption. Simple logic proves there are many more infallible definitions because the 1854 definiton of the Immaculate Conception PRECEDED the 1870 Definition of Infallibility, and so therefor ALL the DOGMATIC definitions of Ecumenical Councils, Nicaea, Ephesus, Chalcedon up to Trent and Vatican I of 1870 are INFALLIBLE, simply because the 1870 Vatican I formula for infalliblity is present: DEFINING AND BINDING (with ANATHEMA SIT) by a legitimate pope. The super majority of bishops that agreed with the pope in each council UNDERLINES the pope's authority and the truth of the definitions. To pretend that there are ONLY 2 infallible defintions about the Mother of Jesus (The Virgin Mary whom Catholics do NOT worship), and that there are no infallible defintions about the canon of Scripture (which books are the Bible), or the nature of Jesus, (God and Man), or the Trinity, or the sacraments, is to make a mockery of the Catholic Faith. IT IS OFTEN SAID, THAT IF A LIE IS REPEATED ENOUGH, IT IS BELIEVED TO BE TRUE.
John Leary (JohnLeary.com)
Bishop Clark of Rochester NY, USA, had a committee report findings regarding John Leary, that are published on page xi of PREPARE FOR THE GREAT TRIBULATION AND ERA OF PEACE volume XV (1999). (Queenship.org)
There were 2 objections:
1/Millenarianism #676 of Catechism of the Catholic Church (revised 1997 and approved by JP2) said that it is a deception to say that the messianic hope (era of peace) has already begun BEFORE the "eschatological judgment".
John Leary never said that the era of peace had already begun, so the claim that he was involved with a deception is bogus. But John Leary has obeyed his Bishop and will not now speak of the era of peace as ordered by the Bishop.
2/ anti-papalism John Leary was accused of being anti-papal. John Leary was never against JP2, but simply said his successor would not be true to the Roman Catholic Faith, and should NOT be followed in his deviation from Catholic teaching. Again, John Leary has obeyed his Bishop, and will not now speak or publish anything about the anti-pope impostor.
Please pray for Pope Benedict's soul and the very many he is misleading with his "real teeth" for the UN (a tower of Babel) that promotes infanticide-abortion, and the CO2 global tax scam. Jesus said: "...if a blind man leads a blind man, both will fall into a pit." Matthew 15:14.
Photo above taken of Cardinal Ratzinger holding the CATECHISM OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH which he now rejects as pope. #676 of the CATECHISM is diametrically opposed to #67 of CHARITY IN TRUTH. Even if the pope is sincere in his political OPINION that the UN should have all-powerful teeth, supported by a global CO2 UN TAX, HE IS SINCERELY WRONG. The pope also knows the United Nations is now promoting abortion. Maria Divine Mercy, a ANONYMOUS false prophet, has said we are to follow this Pope Benedict who she claims was forced to resign, EVEN THOUGH HE PUBLICLY STATED THAT HE FREELY RESIGNED. The archbishop of Melbourne, Australia, has stated that Maria Divine Mercy is not to be given credibility, and that her written materials are to be disposed of, not having the approval of the Church.
Study your Bible and the Catechism of the Catholic Church approved by John Paul II. The One, Holy, Roman Catholic Church is a divine institution. Even a bad pope (or anti-pope) cannot destroy it.
Either Benedict XVI is manifestly
INCOMPETENT, or more likely, he knows EXACTLY THE DECEPTIONS HE IS ENGAGED IN.
How many more DEVIATIONS from the DEPOSIT OF FAITH (Scriputre & Tradition)
does B16 have to do before Bishops and Cardinals and priests and deacons loyal
to the Roman Catholic Church of Jesus Christ WAKE UP, AND then WAKE UP THE
FAITHFUL!!?? This is more about protecting the faithful from many
deceptions, than it is about dissing a pope. And yes, keep praying for the pope emeritus
so he will repent. We all need to repent, not just the pope emeritus (or anti-pope as
later may be provable beyond doubt)

Pope Benedict XVI meets the
archbishop of Buenos Aires Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio at the Vatican, 13
By Alasdair Baverstock
10:11AM GMT 15 Mar 2013
In 2005, then Pope Benedict, while quoting from an obscure medieval text,
declared that the Prophet Mohammed, founder of the Islamic faith, was "evil and
inhuman", enraging the Muslim population and causing attacks on churches
throughout the world before an apology was issued.
Reacting within days to the statements, speaking through a spokesman to
Newsweek Argentina, then Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio declared his "unhappiness"
with the statements, made at the University of Regensburg in Germany, and
encouraged many of his subordinates with the Church to do the same.
"Pope Benedict's statement don't reflect my own opinions", the then
Archbishop of Buenos Aires declared. "These statements will serve to destroy in
20 seconds the careful construction of a relationship with Islam that Pope John
Paul II built over the last twenty years".
Vatican reacted quickly, removing one subordinate, Joaquín Piña the
Archbishop of Puerto Iguazú from his post within four days of his making similar
statements to the Argentine national media, sending a clear statement to
Cardinal Bergoglio that he would be next should he choose to persist.
Reacting to the threats from Rome, Cardinal Bergoglio cancelled his plans to
fly to Rome, choosing to boycott the second synod that Pope Benedict had called
during his tenure as pontiff.
