Collection, Oriental Flair & Chinese Persecution
Exposing Homosexuality in the Church
You need to expose every homosexual priest, bishop and cardinal by name and photograph in the church. The stench of the Catholic Church needs fumigated.
It's become a cesspool of corruption throughout the world.
We are on the same page on this topic. It is precisely what we are trying to do.

Collection on the Council
I have just finished the
and, with it, the entire book series
Eli Eli Lamma Sabacthani
This series, for those who can intellectually handle it, will most likely be the standard of reference concerning what happened at Vatican ll and its aftermath.
I have had the chance to learn a lot about Immanentism, Naturalism and Evolutionism. The lengths to which the writings of Teilhard de Chardin and Karl Rahner, along with a handful of others, applied these and their ideas concerning these three things into the Kabbalistic Documents at V-ll is astounding.
They replaced the Roman Catholic Faith with the new Conciliar Religion. A recent prelate said, "When the Anti-Christ comes he will be an Environmentalist with a doctorate in Sacred Scripture from Tubingen University."
Many thanks to Mr. Guimarães for all the hard work he did to make this series on V-ll available. It will make a big difference in understanding the terrible wrong - the whats, whys and hows of the Council. The worst event in the history of the world.
Our Lady of Good Success, pray for us.
Our Lady of La Salette,pray for us.
Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.
The Editor responds:
Mr. Stephen Majchrzak,
Thank you for your noble words of analysis and recognition. They mean a lot to me.
I will include them in a small book TIA is preparing to introduce readers to this Collection, which includes questions & answers about it, excerpts of book reviews and comments by readers.
Thank you also for your constant support these years during which we struggled to translate and publish all these volumes.
May Our Lady bless you and yours,
Atila S. Guimarães
A Bit of Oriental Flair
One of the pleasures of traveling is to observe the various and sundry customs that make up the cultural identity of a nation. Seeing how each country expresses its national identity oftentimes provides a glimpse into the cultural psyche and ethos of the people.
I cannot say I have been to Hindustan, but I came across
showing the daily border closing ceremony between Pakistan and India. This curiously ostentatious ceremony perhaps reminds one more of strutting peacocks or roosters, but nonetheless is sure to offer a sight, if one is seeking an eccentric display of oriental verve.
Yours in Christ,
How weird is the Catholic Church today?
Not necessarily "bad weird," but just so unexpected and different compared to the parish I grew up in back before Vatican II "renewed" the Church.
Today's local evidence: I attended Mass at the local Ukrainian Catholic church. That's my personal weirdness, since I am a Latin Rite member.
The Mass was concelebrated by a member of the Community of the Beatitudes, a somewhat cultish Medjugorjist/Charismatic group, made up of good people locally, but clearly post-conciliar "different."
The Mass was celebrated for a local sede-vacantist priest who used to be SSPX, and used to be SSPV, and is now independent.
Go figure. It's not the Church of my grandparents. But at least there was no middle-aged woman wearing spandex giving out Communion.
Trump Keeps Contraception in Catholic Institutions
I don't understand this after what Trump said before he was elected, i.e., this should be a no-brainer if Trump has any credibility along these lines.
: Trump admin keeps Obama rule requiring Little Sisters of the Poor to pay for contraception ... for now.
"A draft executive order to broaden legal exemptions on the grounds of religious beliefs surfaced during the early days of Mr. Trump’s presidency, triggered a brief controversy, and has never been seen again," the Wall Street Journal noted. "For now, the White House is stalling."
Can you say Ivanka? I can!
You screw with a base that UNITED to elect you, Trump, you're FINISHED!
Persecution of Underground Church Intensifies
Thank you for covering the Vatican's attempt to make a union and compromise with the Communist Patriotic Catholic Church, selling out the heroic Underground Church.
As you can see below, the persecution continues and worsens for the underground Catholics.
t encouraged them to come up and join the Patriotic Church so the Vatican could make an agreement. Francis is intensifying the process.
What a sad situation for true Catholics, who always felt they could rely on loyalty to the Holy Father as the anchor in the Church.
Catholic bishop has been held captive preceding Thursday's Chrism Mass
FUIJAN PROVINCE, China (ChurchMilitant.com) - The
Chinese government is stifling
a Catholic bishop's attempt to celebrate Chrism Mass, continuing the government's persecution of legitimate Catholicism in the nation.
Bishop Vincent Guo Xijin, ordinary of Mindong in China's eastern Fujian province, was slated to offer his first Chrism Mass Thursday. Yet the bishop, who is one of the leaders of China's underground Church, will not be in attendance.
On April 7, the bishop was called into the local religious affairs bureau in Fuan. Almost a week later, the bishop has not returned.
"The security bureau informed the diocese that the provincial religious affairs bureau asked him to attend a learning class for 20 days," said a local priest talking to
. He asked not to be named.
Without the bishop in attendance, it's unlikely the Mass will proceed.
Bishop Vincent is one of the Chinese "underground" bishops recognized by the Vatican but not approved of by the Chinese state. The state has recognized a church community in the diocese led by the government-appointed "bishop" Vincent Zhan Xilu. Zhan, however, is one of seven government-appointed bishops the Vatican has refused to recognize.
A majority of the estimated 80,000 Catholics in the bishop's diocese belong to the underground Church and are served by about 50 priests and 100 nuns.
The persecution of Chinese Catholics is severe. Catholic leaders in China are
forced to register
with the Catholic Patriotic Association, a government blacklist that authorities have frequently used to arrest Catholics who run afoul of the totalitarian State.
Church Militant has reported on the continuing persecution in China. In 2016, officials announced that Christians who attend churches not approved by the government would no longer be
eligible for public welfare
or any kind of government insurance.
The Chrism Mass is foremost a sign of the unity between a bishop and his priests and attendance is encouraged for all diocesan priests. The Mass marks the institution of the priesthood and the Holy Mass itself. Recognizing its importance, Pope Paul VI introduced to the liturgy of this Mass a renewal of vows that priests recite.
Shuttering the Maundy Thursday Mass is a clear message from the government that Chinese Catholics must respect the illegitimate government-appointed bishops.
Yet brave Chinese Catholics have embraced their crosses. Their continued resistance to illegitimate bishops has shown they will not be passive observers to government attempts to stifle or defang the Church. Their witness gives inspiration to Christians worldwide during this Easter
