BECOMING a CATHOLIC

BECOMING a CATHOLIC posted in Eleison Comments on May 25, 2024

If any soul eternity understands, 

Then let a Rosary ever be in its hands.

A reader of these “Comments” who is obviously not Catholic asks how to become one. It may be a question that interests more than just this reader. May Almighty God bless all such readers, because it is surely a grace of His that is prompting them to take a serious interest in joining the one true Church that is His – the true Roman Catholic Church. Today one has to add the adjective “true” because of course the Second Vatican Council (1962–1965) fabricated a whole false Church designed to lead souls to eternal Hell instead of eternal Heaven. This can only complicate today the question of how to join the true Church, but if a soul is honestly searching for it, God has countless ways of reaching that soul with all help needed, despite any roadblocks thrown in His way by misguided or delinquent men. Let such a soul trust that God wants to bring him or her to Heaven, and He needs only the on-going cooperation of that soul to succeed. 

Being a Catholic is about getting to Heaven, which is the uninterrupted supernatural bliss, intrinsically far above and beyond all our natural powers of mind and will as human beings. The bliss consists in the supernatural vision of God as He is in Himself and not just as we can glimpse Him from His natural creatures which surround us in our brief life on this earth. The gateway to this bliss is God’s supernatural gift of Faith, which reaches far above our natural reason. Whether or not I receive from God this gift of His, basic to eternal salvation, depends entirely on Him and not on me, but on the other hand there is an old saying to the effect that to whoever does all that it lies within his nature to do, God does not deny His (supernatural) grace. This is a kind of common sense, but beware, Faith remains, essentially, God’s free gift. What I can do, once I realise how indispensable for salvation is the gift of Faith, is bend all my powers to ask Him in prayer to give it to me. (It can be highly recommended to pray the Rosary even if someone does not yet believe that the Blessed Virgin Mary is and was the Mother of God. She will step in . . . ) 

What I can also do is to apply all my reasoning faculties to examining three great propositions which I can accept by mere (but upright!) human reasoning. If I do so, they can definitely help God to give me the gift of Faith, but they cannot, just by themselves, pull down God’s gift, which remains His free gift. As the half-believing sinner said in the Gospel, “Lord, I believe, help thou my unbelief.” He may have been no theologian, but he was talking Catholic sense (Mark IX, 24). These three propositions are, 1) God exists, (2 Jesus Christ was and is God, and 3) The (true) Roman Catholic Church was instituted by Jesus Christ. 

1) God exists – the most obvious argument from His creatures (as from effect to necessary cause) is the argument from intelligent design. The intelligence is visible everywhere in His creation, but it cannot come from the creatures which are themselves unintelligent, like animal, vegetable, mineral. Just one example – no spider ever steps on the sticky parts of its own web! Only the spider’s victims do that. 

2) Jesus Christ is and was God – during His life on earth, He worked numberless miracles which God alone can work, because the Author of Nature alone can interrupt at will the normal course of nature. The raising of Lazarus (see Jn. XI) was a stupendous miracle wrought directly in front of a largely hostile crowd. Relics of Our Lord revealing to modern science traces of His DNA show evidence of His human mother but none of any human father. Indeed He was born of Mary, but conceived by the Holy Ghost. 

3) Jesus Christ instituted the (true) Roman Catholic Church and no other. Mankind’s history shows all other “Christian” denominations to have started centuries after He lived on earth (1–33 AD). As for all non-Christian religions, they all deny that He was God, Second Person of the Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Ghost. All such religions cannot be true, and if like Vatican II they pretend that they can still be a way to Heaven, they lie again, because there can be no place for lies in the true God’s true Heaven. 

If after working over these three preliminary truths, a soul still wishes to become Catholic, then it goes to see a Catholic priest to ask to be baptised, which is the normal way of entering the Church.

SCRIPTURE’S ACTUALITY

SCRIPTURE’S ACTUALITY posted in Eleison Comments on May 18, 2024

Around the Incarnate God the whole world turns, 

As Scripture tells. By scorning Him, it burns.

The latest issue of the news bulletin of the “Resistance” Seminary of the Society of the Apostles of Jesus and Mary, in Morannes in North-western France, has an admirable Editorial coming from that Society’s Superior, Bishop Jean-Michel Faure. It is not long. Here is the complete text – 

Dear Friends and Benefactors, 

Our Lord said to the Apostles, “When you hear of wars and uprisings, let yourselves not be frightened . . . . you will be hated by everybody, because of my name” (that is to say, because of your faithfulness to my doctrine) . . . . “by your perseverance you will save your souls . . . . When you see these things beginning to happen, raise your heads and look up, because your redemption (and your victory) is close at hand.” (Lk. XXI, 9, 17, 19, 28). 

Today we are witnessing the signs that announce the great events alluded to by Our Lord Jesus Christ, St Paul and St John: the Great Apostasy. Never before have the enemies of Jesus Christ had at their disposal so many means of destroying all faith and morals in the souls of children, youngsters and elders. “Crush the infamous (church),” Voltaire was already crying out in the 18th century to adepts of the infernal sect – “Let us pull down the throne (or monarchy) in order to pull down the altar (or Catholic Mass and Church), by secularism (television, internet, cinema), indecent fashions, and finally by infiltrating the Church, up to and including the Papacy, thanks to the Second Vatican Council. 

Modern history illustrates the stages of the great Apostasy of the Nations, the gestures and deeds of the agents of the Antichrist, his predecessors preparing for the Antichrist himself to come, getting ready the generation of men to applaud him when he comes (cf. II Thess. I, 8). A very recent document coming from Rome states that human dignity is infinite. Here is man pretending to set up his throne inside the Church, so as to enthrone himself there with the power of the Devil (II Thess. II, 4). 

As he pilgrims of Emmaus said to Our Lord, “Lord, stay with us, for the day is far spent” (Lk. XXIV, 29) (and darkness is covering the earth). 

Have courage, little flock – “I have conquered the world” (Jn. XVI, 33), by the Cross. The Kingdom of God has never been so close. 

Mgr. Jean-Michel Faure 

What is impressive here is first and foremost how relevant to our unprecedented calamities in Church and world of today are the plentiful quotations from a distant yesterday. Readers of these “Comments” are entitled not to have been impressed by the lack of authority of much more recent Messages purporting to come from Heaven to enlighten and encourage us in the coming battle, but let them at least open their Bibles to read again Matthew XXIV, Mark XIII and Luke XXI. There is no lack of divine Authority behind the text of the Gospels, there is only a lack of our realising, in the manner of Bishop Faure, how much that text can come to life in our present circumstances. 

Readers, to understand what is really happening around us and what we need to do, read regularly God’s own Word in Scripture, and not only the New Testament but also the Old Testament, where the multiple presentation of God’s goodness meeting the wickedness of men is the very essence of today’s events.

REMARKABLE MESSAGES – IV

REMARKABLE MESSAGES – IV posted in Eleison Comments on May 11, 2024

Dear God, I can’t. You can. You must. 

In You I believe, I hope, I trust.

This fourth (and last for the moment) Message from Texas is specially appropriate for Catholics today, both by its understanding of their distress, and by its appealing for their trust. It is these “Comments” that have highlighted certain words in black. By all means read the original Messages at mdm.faith 

March 14, 2024, from God the Father: For My children who live in exile, write the following:— 

You are living in exile, a most painful exile for it is not only the not being in My Paradise yet – in the places that I have prepared for you from all eternity, united in My Love – but it is also the feeling of being exiled from your families, from your friends, even from My own Church, living as exiles, without a place of your own. How many of you, My children, feel this way, abandoned, forgotten, ignored, and so wounded. Wounded by the world and the envy of Satan, wounded by your own actions and decisions. 

Children, look at your Father. Look at the One Who wanted you to exist – in this moment – to receive His Love, His Grace, to learn how to live with Him now in order to be able to live with Him for all eternity. Give Me all your pain, children, the anguish that envelops your hearts at seeing the devastation of My vineyard. Unite your pain to Mine. I Am your Father, your “Abba,” and your GOD. And soon, My children, your God will arise in such a way that all that exists will acknowledge that I AM GOD. Terrible Hour and Hour full of Grace. The blessed Hour, the Hour of My last Mercy before the great battle that will leave Satan and his cohorts defeated. 

I ask that you prepare yourselves, that you be attentive – but this preparation and this being attentive to My Voice is rooted in FAITH, children. The FAITH that believes in what I say; that believes that all that I say to you is True, despite having everything around you tell you the opposite; despite your senses telling you something different. The FAITH that is ADORATION because it gives Me what is rightfully Mine as GOD and as your FATHER. The FAITH that is union with Me; that is the not separating your gaze from My Face, from My Love, from My Will. Set aside your criteria, your ideas, your reasonings. Children, they are contaminated by the world, and in many instances by your own pride instigated by Satan. Allow Me to guide your thoughts according to My Light and My Will for each of you. Children, do not be afraid. I have placed each of you where I need you. Your first task in this Hour is to stand with your gaze fixed on Me. 

Children, I do not ask that you understand, but rather that you listen to Me, that you receive Me, that you obey Me. But I want your co-operation, children, and this is why I ask you to walk in darkness, in the desert of the senses, where everything is fog for the senses, for the mind, because it is here that – by trusting that I Am guiding you, by obeying even though you do not understand and you feel afraid because you do not see Me or see My way – it is here, children, that I train you in the true and indomitable FAITH that unites you to Me. 

Your GOD IS COMING. WITH POWER AND AUTHORITY. TO RE-ESTABLISH HIS ORDER IN ALL THAT IS CREATED. TO RESTORE WHAT IS CORRODED BY SIN AND SATAN. TO CAST OUT THE SERPENTS AND WOLVES FROM MY TEMPLE. TO RECONQUER THE HEARTS OF MY CHILDREN. 

Kyrie eleison

REMARKABLE MESSAGES – III

REMARKABLE MESSAGES – III posted in Eleison Comments on May 4, 2024

Man scorning God has made our world such a mess 

As God alone can solve, and nobody less.

The third in the series of Messages coming to us from Heaven earlier this year through the little Mission of Divine Mercy in backwoods Texas, is addressed by God the Father again, but this time “to His faithful priests.” The contents stand in marked contrast to the tremendous accusations which He levelled against the bishops and priests of Vatican II in His Second Message – see these “Comments” of last week, EC 876, April 27. Both the Second and Third Messages are particularly relevant to our own dramatic times, highlighting the special good and evil that come from bishops and priests. At Akita in 1973 Our Lady’s solution to all the world’s ills was the Rosary, prayed “for the Pope, for bishops and for priests.” Read on. 

March 1st & 2nd: Write, My daughter, for My faithful Priests. Write for My sons who have kept My Word – My Jesus – as the centre of their being: who imitate My Jesus in His Obedience, in His Offering, in His Love and Trust in His Father. You have clothed yourselves with My Jesus and as such I see you. My faithful sons, keeping watch – tireless watch over My little ones. Help them with your prayers and your sacrifice – the daily offering of yourselves with My Jesus on the Altar. The Most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. The Most Holy Offering of My Jesus out of love for Me – and you. The Offering you unite yourselves to. The Offering that I take into My Heart and through which I pour out Mercy and Grace upon My parched people. 

Do you see, My sons, why then there are incessant attacks on this Holy Sacrifice? Why the enemy must destroy It at all costs? Why he works tirelessly to subvert It? And not being able to destroy It in Itself – for he has already been vanquished by It – he must destroy those in whose hands I have placed this Offering: you, My Priests. You see the attacks on My Most Holy Sacrament, the True Presence of My Jesus – with what disdain and disrespect He is treated, abused. You see how these attacks destroy FAITH in the hearts of My children, who no longer believe My Jesus, no longer recognize Him. You see how when FAITH is extinguished, idolatry and despair take possession of the soul. 

You see, My sons, bulwark after bulwark falling, being destroyed. You see the hordes of demons attacking My children. The order I established in My Church for the good of all My children is under siege, My sons. You have experienced the consequences of this siege and the confusion it causes. The terrible, terrible confusion it has brought about. When a mission separates itself from the TRUTH, from Me, it ceases to be useful, and by not remaining in the TRUTH, it becomes an anti-mission. An obstacle. My sons, do you see now what is taking place in My Church? HOW MANY MISSIONS HAVE BEEN SUBVERTED? HOW MANY HAVE THE APPEARANCE OF BEING MINE, BUT ARE IMPOSTORS? 

We – you and I – have been in this battle for a long, long time. Warding off constantly the attacks of the Ancient Serpent, the great Accuser. But the battle that looms now, My sons, is far greater, far subtler, far, far more dangerous. And it is why I have reserved Grace upon Grace for these times. My enemy – our enemy – thinks he has the victory in his hand, he sees the destruction and deception he has caused. He is so pleased with himself that his pride blinds him. My sons, I will send My Truth as the great Sign, as the great Light to enlighten the consciences of My children, so that they may see how I see each of you. When I act thus – in an instant, reaching from one end of the world to the other – your Priesthood will become a tremendous pillar and refuge for My children, who will come to you in multitude after multitude to receive My forgiveness and Mercy through you. My sons, ready yourselves. I AM COMING. 

Kyrie eleison. 

REMARKABLE MESSAGES – II

REMARKABLE MESSAGES – II posted in Eleison Comments on April 27, 2024

Can anyone here not recognise Tradition? 

Or in the Council Catholics’ perdition?

The second in the series of Messages, supposedly from Heaven, coming to us recently through the small Catholic community in South Texas, is from God the Father. On February 22 He called on all His children to join the army He has formed all over the world in small battalions, because they have been abandoned and betrayed by the vast majority of their shepherds appointed to look after them. Instead these fell asleep and betrayed them – His Voice goes unrecognised by them, but it is about to thunder to awaken them. His children have long been suffering at their hands, but He is arising soon on His children’s behalf. Let them wait just a little longer, lift up their hearts, trust in Him, and have no fear. He loves them. He is coming. 

In the “small battalions” can anyone not recognise the scattered remnants of the so-called “Resistance”?On February 26 God the Father followed up with words for His “priest sons” – a tremendous indictment. 

Write now, daughter, for My Priest sons. Those who, instead of being My closest collaborators, My most docile and faithful instruments, My rest, have become a very great hindrance; souls of thieves, stealing from My children what belongs to them. Souls rebellious to My Voice, lazy souls. Souls that, having lost Me, do not seek Me. Venturing further and further into darkness they turn their backs to My Light. They will become dryer and more withered than the fig tree I cursed before entering Jerusalem. WAKE UP, sons. See what IN TRUTH is happening around you. Come out from the enemy, out of his confusions and seductions. My Voice is clear, direct. The yes that is yes, the no that is no. The Truth is LIGHT. 

Sons, you are surrounded by lies. YOU HAVE BEEN LIED TO. And you have absorbed these lies that are so harmful because they obscure the TRUTH, so that your whole being is obscured and you are easily distracted, and you become completely harmless to My enemy. I NEED WARRIOR SONS. PRIESTS AND SOLDIERS. Fearless in battle. WHERE IS YOUR FAITH, sons? SONS, DARKNESS HAS SPREAD, BECAUSE THERE IS NO FAITH IN MY PRIESTS. YOU ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR SO MUCH DARKNESS, SONS. 

And you, so-called Bishops, who should be fathers for My Priest sons, examples and guides, you have become much worse than demons, for at least the demons recognize Me as God, despite hating Me. But you HAVE CAST ME ASIDE and YOU HAVE USED ME FOR YOUR OWN ENDS. Woe to you. Woe to you if you do not recognize this last opportunity. If you do not turn to Me, if you do not recognize your guilt and responsibility. I will call you to an account. NO ONE MOCKS ME. NO ONE TAKES ADVANTAGE OF ME. You have not only let the smoke of Satan infiltrate into My Sanctuary; but you have allowed a whole army of demons to take your places. And you have allowed the usurper to sit on the chair of My Peter – he who is carrying out the Great Treason that will leave My Church desolate. AND YOU HAVE ALLOWED THIS. And you carry with you the terrible Responsibility of this horrendous offence to Me, your GOD. You are so blinded that you do not see how you are being used and manipulated. You have deserted Me and you have abandoned My little ones. And you have abandoned My Jesus. Woe to you. 

But I, your GOD, have Mercy. I, your good Father, take pity on your blindness, starvation, and nakedness. MAKE HASTE, sons. THERE IS NO MORE TIME. I speak to you as your Father. But soon I shall speak as the ALL POWERFUL AND ONLY GOD. THE LORD GOD OF HOSTS. HE WHO IS. THE ONLY ONE. WAKE UP. FIGHT. DEFEND WHAT I HAVE ENTRUSTED TO YOU. IT IS THE LAST CALL. I WANT YOU IN MY ARMY. NOW. I HAVE MY PLAN, DO NOT HINDER ME. I have waited for you for a long time and there is no time left. Get your houses in order, sons. I will visit EACH OF YOU. LISTEN TO ME, SONS. STAND UP. I AM COMING. 

Kyrie eleison 

REMARKABLE MESSAGES – I

REMARKABLE MESSAGES – I posted in Eleison Comments on April 20, 2024

The horror coming threatens massive pain, 

And that is why She warns, again and again.

When it comes to apparitions and messages supposedly coming from Heaven, to be prudent is certainly wise, because God knows, the Devil has so infiltrated the minds of churchmen with the betrayal of the true Catholic Faith by the devilries of Vatican II that these churchmen can hardly any longer be relied on to make a proper Catholic discernment for us between what is and what is not truly from Heaven, as St Paul calls upon us to do in Scripture – I Thess.V, 19–21. But one can be excessively prudent, especially when the normal Church Authority is itself in confusion. One thing is certain: just as there would be no counterfeit bank-notes if there were no genuine notes in circulation, so there would be no counterfeit Messages from Heaven if there were no genuine ones to imitate. It is up to ourselves to do our best to discern. Let us give to a series of recent Messages coming from backwoods Texas, USA, a hearing. 

The series began with an introductory Message supposedly from Our Lady – let the “supposedly” be taken for granted and not repeated in everything quoted henceforth in these “Eleison Comments” from these Messages. The “Comments” have no authority to guarantee the Texas Messages’ authenticity, but they do take them seriously enough to consider them well worth quoting. Let readers judge on their own. Here for instance are a few extracts from the first Message (last time – supposedly) of Our Lady – 

February 8: Children, the battle looms and you are asleep. I come to awake you; as a good mother who, being vigilant and keeping watch over her children, and seeing the increasing danger, shakes her children so that they may not perish without fighting. Children, these are the times announced from of old, in which the thrice accursed serpent will poison many, and interfere in what is Ours, and will rise to confuse the nations with his puppets, his servants, to destroy all that is of God, and to rule in His place. The Devil’s longing to be adored and his hatred of God have driven him to prepare, over centuries, what is now being unveiled before your eyes . . . 

I have come to you, children, time and time again, year after year, to warn you . . . but how few of you have understood me, and placed yourselves at my disposal for Me to form My army of light . . . . Children, there is no time left. The battle, Our counter-attack, begins with these Words, which We give to you as Light, Protection, Guidance and Consolation. Do not ignore them . . . they will give you the guidance that you need, now that My Church is without a shepherd to tend to My sheep, to My children . . . . They want to destroy you, children . . . receive my Words of love and consolation. 

You are wounded, my little children, some more, some less, but all of you carry wounds – from your own decisions, from the hatred of Satan – and all of you need Our healing, all of you need Our help. My children, I give my Jesus to you again, I give Him to you with all my personal Love . . . as your King . . . your Saviour and Redeemer . . . only Him, children. Only He saves. Only He purifies. Only He heals . . . . Do not be confused. Many voices try, and will try, to pass as His. Many say, and will say that they do everything in His name. But look at their works. Look at the fruits, children. DO NOT IGNORE THEM. 

And I, your Mother, will prepare you to receive the supreme Gift of luminous Faith in the centre of your soul to be able to face the present and coming times, in which everything that seemed to be stable will crumble down . . . . Blessed is he who receives these Words and allows them to bear their fruit . . . 

The complete text is rather longer, and the selected extracts quoted above do not convey Our Lady’s sense of urgency, as though we are on the very brink of the great battle due to break out. The little Catholic centre in Texas receiving these Messages has its own website – look up “Mission of Divine Mercy.” 

Truly, Kyrie eleison.
