Sheen, Euthanasia & Fruits of the Council



Sheen, a Fan of Teilhard

Dear TIA,

A comment I just made on the Church Militant website:

Archbishop Sheen, very admirable man, nevertheless gave an enthusiastic endorsement of Teilhard de Chardin in one chapter of his book "Footprints in a Darkened Forest" (1967.) Are there any standards for canonization other than popularity or political usefulness?

There is a lot of good to say about Sheen, but my comment should stir the pot a little.

     P.O.B.

Catholic Church Promotes Euthanasia


TIA,

The PAV and the Secretary of State launched the PAL-Life Project last year.

The purpose of this project is to increase the presence of palliative medicine globally. Palliative medicine in America was built by funding from Soros’ Project on Death in America led by a cadre of academic medical professionals designed to make the hastening of death legal. The head of this project was Dr Kathy Foley. She is a new member of the PAV.

My purpose of writing you is to reach out for help. For 20 years LifeTree has been warning people about the Third Path Movement or the moderate wing of the euthanasia movement. Their vehicle is to use the new field of palliative medicine to “flip” patient treatment from traditional medical care to comfort care only. Very few Catholic clergy and lay people want to listen. Now the successes of the Third Path are so numerous that they are nearing the “tipping point” of no return.

If you can help in any way please contact me. Thank you.

Brazilian Royalty with Indians


Dear TIA,

As part of the tribalist propaganda, members of royal families around the world are posing with Brazilian Indians. In the photo below, we see Prince João de Orleans e Bragança, a member of the Brazilian Imperial Family, posing half-naked with two Indians as if he were a part of the Xingu tribe.

There is no doubt that this paves the way for the Synod of Amazon, which is expected to be an earthquake in Catholic institutions by shaking priestly celibacy and introducing woman priests.

San Felipe de Jesus


TIA,

In the Cathedral of Mexico City, I read his story some time ago. Recently I found an old hard copy called Felipe by Helene Margaret, published in 1962 by The Bruce Publishing Co. in Milwaukee, and it reminded me how good for our Faithful it would be if you would make a post about his Martyrdom in far-away Japan (far from his home in Mexico).

I know you would do this if you would have the data. He was a martyr of justice and to hear his story would edify the Faithful, young or old.

May God reward you

     Gratefully,

     S.F.

Pope Names Women to Synod Secretariat


Dear TIA,

The Francis Revolution continues…

Read below. Now, we have women named to control the Synod of Bishops. Tomorrow, he will make women cardinals.

     Regards,

Pope Francis leads the opening of the Italian Episcopal Conference
at the Vatican, May 20, 2019.


Philip Pullella

Vatican City (Reuters) - Pope Francis appointed women on Friday to a key Vatican department for the first time since it was founded more than 50 years ago, a move welcomed by Catholic women's groups as a significant advance.

Three nuns and one lay woman were appointed counselors in the office of synods, which prepares major meetings of world bishops held every few years on a different topic.

Pope Paul VI founded the Synod of Bishops in 1965 as a body to advise popes. A Vatican spokesman said they were the first women members in its history.

Two of the four are Italian - Sister Alessandra Smerilli, an economics professor, and Cecilia Costa, a sociology professor. The others are Sister Maria Luisa Berzosa Gonzalez of Spain and Sister Nathalie Becquart of France.

"It is great news because until now there were no structures for women to have an influence on synods while they are being prepared," said Zuzanna Fliosowska, general manager of Voices of Faith, an international advocacy group that promotes a greater role for women in the Church.

Devastating Fruits of Vatican II


TIA,

In a book by Taylor Marshall "The plot to destroy the Church" the following statistics below are shocking.

Figures do not lie!

When Coca Cola had a disaster with New Coke, it took their leadership only 78 days to admit the mistake. The Catholic hierarchy is still telling us that Vatican II was a success 50 plus years later in spite of the actual numbers.

The author states that the 2015 numbers are even worse.

The book is indeed shocking reading.. Failure is the trademark of the hierarchy!
