Nuns at WYD, Francis on Jews & Conversions



Official Recognition of Freemasonry

TIA,

I hope you know of this resolution praising the Freemasons. It seems that the House of Representatives is preparing to accept officially those who worship the Devil. Instead of having a State relying on the true God and the true Church, the U.S. is on its way to rely officially on Freemasonry and its inspirer, Satan.

Prayer in Honor of St. Philomena

St. Philomena, child saint of the early Church, we ask you to help us to become closer to Our Lord. You suffered and died for Him and His Church, help us always to do His will throughout our lives.

Especially for the children of our Catholic Family, do we ask you for guidance and graces, through Our Lord and His Sacred Heart, and through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, to whom you were so lovingly devoted. O Philomena, crowned with the glory of martyrdom, assist us on our earthly pilgrimage. Amen.

     S.S.

Nuns at the WYD

Dear TIA,

I refer to your recent photographs from World Youth Day [first photo of the page].

The brazen young girl in her bikini is indeed quite shocking, but one has come to expect this from world youth gatherings.

I was more shocked by the demeanor of the nuns. They resembled disheveled schoolgirls rather than Brides of Christ. Their jumpers were totally inadequate in terms of length and suitability to cover modestly. They were in an unseemly haste and one was pointing her finger at some sight. In my day pointing was considered not to be lady-like. Most of all the contour of their bosom could be clearly seen.

Mary-like modesty requires the form and shape of the female body to be hidden. If I had displayed a similar demeanor in my own school days, I would certainly have been punished and deservedly so.

God bless you all at TIA.

     Yours faithfully,

     C.P., Ireland

‘Catholics: Lower Your Defenses before the Jews’

TIA,

Pope Francis has had deep experience in interreligious relations in Argentina. He co-authored a book with Rabbi Abraham Skorka, Sobre el Cielo y la Tierra (On Heaven and Earth, Buenos Aires: Sudamericana, 2011; e-book: Random House Mondadori, 2011).

Regarding interreligious discussions, then-Cardinal Bergoglio wrote: “Dialogue is born from an attitude of respect for the other person, from a conviction that the other person has something good to say. It assumes that there is room in the heart for the person’s point of view, opinion, and proposal. To dialogue entails a cordial reception, not a prior condemnation. In order to dialogue it is necessary to know how to lower the defenses, open the doors of the house, and offer human warmth” (my translation).

The book is itself a model of interreligious dialogue. In the Foreword, Rabbi Skorka notes the risk that they were taking in sharing their personal exchanges with the public: “To transform dialogue into a conversation with many, to bare our souls, accepting all the risks that this implies, but profoundly convinced that this is the only path of knowing man, which is capable of bringing us closer to God.”

Was Wojtyla Installed by Communists?

Hello,

I was reading the article "Fatima: Lessons from Poland" and I reached a conclusion that if the pope Wojtyla got a job in the Catholic University in Lublin, Poland, and a French book from 60 years ago speaks about "special Catholics who were installed by communists" - then there is no doubt. JPII was a quiet collaborator.

In Christo,

     P.B.

Francis: No, Absolutely No to Conversions

TIA,

I am sending you below a news report published in Brazil on Pope Francis, plus my comments on it, plus a text by Fr. Emmanuel Barbier, confirming my comments.

Pope says faithful should help the needy, not convert them


August 7, 2013 - Rome - In a video message sent on the feast of St. Cayetano, celebrated this Wednesday in Argentina, Pope Francis said Catholics should always help those who are passing through bad times - without, however, trying to convince them to convert. To convert others to become Catholics? No, no and no again. Go to meet them, they are your brothers, this is enough. Go to help them. The rest is for Jesus and the Holy Ghost, he said.

According to a tradition in the country, every August 7 the faithful line up at the door of the Sanctuary to kiss St. Cayetano’s statute. In his video message, which will be displayed on large outdoor screens at the entrance of the church, the Pope, although far away, “has gone through the line with his heart.”

Based on the theme of the pilgrimage, “With Jesus and St. Cayetano let us go meet the needy,” Francis asked the faithful to make the “culture of the encounter” stronger. He said a Christian should be close to those in need. When one gives alms, he should look into the eyes of the one who receives them and touch him.

One should not watch from afar and help from afar, but to go to the encounter. This is to be Christian, it is what Jesus teaches us: to encounter the ones in need. This is to be like Jesus who always went out to encounter the people, he explained.

My commentary on this news:
  1. “In that time, Jesus manifested Himself to the eleven disciples. And He told them: Go all over the world and preach this Gospel to all creatures. Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned.” (Mk 16: 15-16)

    “To announce the Gospel is not a glory for me: it is an obligation imposed upon me. Woe is me, if I do not announce the Gospel.” (1 Cor 9:16).
  2. The pastoral declaration by Pope Francis follows the lines of abandoning Catholic proselytism and missionary work, as we have seen since the Second Vatican Council. Further, it corresponds to Francis’ first encyclical Lumen Fidei, which disregards the definition and content of the Catholic Faith, and replaces them with a “culture of the encounter,” a phenomenological and existentialist conception of Christian life.
  3. Pope Francis’ message frontally collides with the quoted Gospel text and with the mission itself of the Roman Pontiff. Rather, it corresponds to the Masonic modus operandi [way of doing things], which preaches an inter-confessional solidarity.“

    This tactic of Freemasonry was exposed in the book The Masonic Infiltration in the Church, (1910) by Fr. Emmanuel Barbier, worthy of his fame. The text follows.
Fr. Barbier on the Masonic infiltrations in the Church

“Freemasonry crafted the infernal aim of corrupting unwary members of the Church, including those of the clergy and Hierarchy, by inoculating their minds with the false principles with which it pretends to subvert the Christian world. These principles are deceitfully presented as if they were harmless. …

“On the other hand, even an incautious observer can see that the social dogmas upon which many Catholics and priests base the renewal of Christianity, are formulated in the same way as proposed by Freemasonry, and they lead and drag the Church into these reforms with procedures identical to the ones employed by Freemasonry.

“The link between these two facts permits no doubt that there actually are Masonic infiltrations in the Church.”

(Emmanuel Barbier, Les infiltrations maçonniques dans l'Église,. Paris: Société Saint-Augustin, Desclée De Brouwer, 1910, p. 1.)
