Saving Souls, a Goal Dismissed
by the Conciliar Church

Homer Sweeney
In a book-interview with journalist Dominique Wolton, Pope Francis was quoted as saying: “Sins of the flesh are the lightest sins. Because the flesh is weak. The most dangerous sins are those of the spirit. I am talking about angelism: Pride, vanity are sins of angelism. Priests have the temptation – not all, but many – of focusing on sins of sexuality, what I call morality below the belt. But the more serious sins are elsewhere.”

Is the Pope implying that sins of the flesh are venial sins? Was he encouraging the sins of the flesh? Is he protecting thousands of religious guilty of sexual-related crimes that are destroying the trust of Catholics and bankrupting Dioceses throughout the country? Has he contradicted the words of Our Lady of La Salette who said, “Woe to priests, and to persons consecrated to God, who by these infidelities and their evil lives are crucifying my son again?” (Apparition of September 19, 1846 - §2)

The answers to these questions can be debated, but we know he was spelling out a new morality that has little to do with the Catholic Church.

How did this happen?

When Vatican II called for an adaptation of the Church to the Modern World, what it was saying is that the Church needed to adapt herself to the Revolution in the world.

The French Revolution marked the beginning of the Modern World in which Catholic Morals was abolished and a new interpretation of Natural Law took its place. This led to a new notion of liberty: A person should be free to do whatever he wants regarding morals so long as he does not harm or disturb others.

In the 1846 Message of La Salette, which rings so true today, Our Lady said: “Civil rulers will all have the same objective, which will be to abolish and make every religious principle disappear, to make way for materialism, atheism, spiritism and all kinds of vices.” (Apparition of September 19, 1846 - §17)


Former Communist Bella Dodd

It is well-known that Communists and Freemasons were very successful in infiltrating the Church. Bella Dodd, who spent most of her life in the Communist Party of America, stated: “In the 1930s, we put eleven hundred men in the priesthood in order to destroy the Church from within.”

Twelve years before Vatican II, she said: “Right now they are in the highest places in the Church.” She predicted that the changes they would implement would be so drastic that “you will not recognize the Catholic Church.”

And today we see the results: The Church become one of the main supporters of Communism in the world.

In 1818, the Freemasons predicted that “in a hundred years’ time, bishops and priests will think they are marching behind the banner of the keys of Peter when, in fact, they will be following our flag. ... The reforms will have to be brought about in the name of obedience."

This apostasy within the Church was confirmed by Our Lady of Good Success who prophesied in the 17th century that at the end of the 19th century and especially in the 20th century that Satan would reign almost completely by means of the Masonic sects. (The Admirable Life of Mother Mariana, vol. 2, p. 21)

Changing the meaning of texts

How many times have you heard that the New Lectionary of the Novus Ordo Mass fully opened up the treasures of Sacred Scripture, allowing the faithful to hear the entire Bible read during course of a three-year period of time. A blatant lie!

It was a diversion to carefully remove, hide or deemphasize topics such as sin, Hell, damnation, the Jews' betrayal of Christ, miracles that could not otherwise be explained by natural causes, and other topics that do not agree with the progressivist philosophy of the Conciliar Church.

The New Mass puts great emphasis on Scriptures, but uses it to fit the progressivist agenda

The Epistle to the Galatians is a example of how progressivists were able to change the focus of the Sunday readings in the Conciliar Church to support their new morality. In it, which is read on the Fourteenth Sunday after Pentecost, St. Paul warns about the seriousness of sins of the flesh:

“Walk in the Spirit, and you will not fulfill the lusts of the flesh. … Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are immorality, uncleanness, licentiousness, idolatry, witchcraft, enmities, contentions, jealousies, anger, quarrels, factions, parties, envies, murders, drunkenness, carousing and such like.

“And concerning these I warn you, as I have warned you that they who do such things will not attain the Kingdom of God. But the fruit of the Spirit is: charity, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, long suffering, mildness, faith, modesty, continence, chastity. Against such things there is no law. ” (Gal, 5:16-24)

Although this passage speaks of sin and Hell, it was not removed from the new liturgy. In fact, the progressivists adopted another tactic of burying it. The reading, in fact, is included on two different Sundays in the three-year cycle. One time is on Sunday of the 13 week in Year C, which is the third year. They only use, however, verses 1 and 13-18, eliminating those lines that describe the sins St. Paul declares will not allow persons to attain the Kingdom of God.

The passage was also used on Pentecost in Year B, or the second year, and does include the verses regarding sins of the flesh. It is, however, only an alternate for the second reading. That means it might be read once every three years if the priest chooses to do so.

At the start of the Novus Ordo Mass the priest processes in from the back of the church with another person carrying the Bible. This is to stress the importance of the readings that, in so many cases, have been changed or wiped out the words of God that do not agree with the progressivist agenda.

As noted above, practically speaking the text of St. Paul about the sins of flesh is either eliminated or left to the discretion of the parish priest, who often ignores it.

Making light of death

In the progressivist era, when a person dies today, we hear: “He or she is in a better place!” I heard it when my wife died. It is what you hear at funerals from priests, doctors and friends all the time.

How do they know that the person went to Heaven? Only God knows! What hippie-priest or progressivist Cardinal made up this story? It is the biggest and most tragic hoax in history!

It contradicts well-known scriptural verses (Mt VII; 13,14) that declare: “Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and abroad is the way that leads to destruction, and many there are who enter by it! How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way, which leads to life: and few there are who find it!”

This passage in the new Conciliar Church is heard on Tuesday of the Twelfth week in Ordinary time by probably less than 5% of the community, and this is a liberal estimate.

It is clear why Our Lady’s first message at Fatima to the three seers was:“You have seen Hell where poor souls go!”

During the youngest seer Jacinta’s stay at the orphanage of Our Lady of Miracles in Lisbon in 1920. One of her messages from Our Lady was that the sins that cause most souls to go to Hell are the sins of the flesh.

Our Lady came to Fatima in 1917 to save our souls from the fires of Hell, which is the declared mission of the Church. As Dr. Plinio notes in one of his articles on Organic Society: "The Church is a perfect society because Our Lord Jesus Christ founded her to bring people to know, love and serve God above all things and, doing so, to save their souls."

The new Church is seen as a friend of Fatima but, in reality, is her enemy! The post-conciliar Popes who have pretended to be friends of Fatima have denied the existence of Hell (here, here, and here) and never warn youth that the sins of the flesh will take them to Hell. Instead they promote mercy ad nauseam and encourage the immoral customs at the World Youth Days. Thus,in reality, they are also enemies of Fatima.

Taking responsibility for saving your soul

In 1957, the last time the real Sister Lucy was seen, she told Fr. Fuentes: “Father the Blessed Virgin is very sad because no one has paid attention to her message.” As noted, the entire Fatima message has been rejected by the Conciliar Church because of the infiltration of communists, freemasons and progressivists.

Referring to the vision of Hell that Our Lady showed the seers in the July 13 vision, Lucy continued: "Father, it is my mission not just to tell about the material punishments that will certainly come over the earth if the world does not pray and do penance. No, my mission is to tell everyone the imminent damager we are in of losing our souls for all eternity if we remain fixed in sin.”

She then added: “Father, we should not wait for a call to the world from Rome on the part of the Holy Father to do penance. Nor should we wait for a call for penance to come from the Bishops in our Dioceses, nor from our religious Congregations. No, Our Lord has often used these means, and the world has not paid heed. So, now each one of us has to save not only his own soul, but also all the souls that God has placed on his pathway.”

This statement was made in 1957, over 60 years ago. Our Lady’s message to help us save our souls is rarely if ever heard in the new Church.

To save your soul we should be devoted to the Blessed Mother, doing at the least the following:
  1. Say the Rosary daily;

  2. Make the Five First Saturday’s for reparation for the sins committed against the Virgin Mary - The promise that Our Lady made to Lucy in 1925 at Pontevedra, Spain, cannot be ignored by anyone serious about trying to save his soul: “I promise to assist at the hour of death, with all the graces necessary for salvation, all those who, on the first Saturday of five consecutive months go to confession and receive Holy Communion, recite five decades of the Rosary and keep me company for a quarter of an hour while meditating on the mysteries of the Rosary with the intention of making reparation to me.”

  3. Wear the Carmelite (Brown) Scapular - The Blessed Mother has mercifully promised that one who wears the Carmelite scapular and keeps its conditions (see here) will receive efficacious graces to confess his sins and be granted the time to make an act of perfect Contrition at his death.
Certainly one should flee from the immorality and vulgarity of the Modern World, as well as the New Church and liturgy that makes so light of saving souls from falling into Hell.
