Covid Tests, Montessori & Persecution in China



Covid Test Game


Dear TIA,

The media is asking: "What to do if you have Covid symptoms but keep testing negative?"

So... the mainstream media is admitting the tests are inaccurate...? This is insanity.

"It’s unclear why some people are getting false negatives after taking at-home tests while experiencing Covid symptoms. but, here are a few tips for how to get a more accurate test result at home, according to experts."

This is a blatant acknowledgment that the tests don't work... But according to the MSM, they are only inaccurate if you are sure that you have Covid and the test tells you that you don't have Covid... if you are not sure if you have Covid and the test tells you that you do have Covid, the tests are perfectly reliable. What a convenient game!

     In Jesu et Maria,

     S.B.

CDC Conflicting Statements


TIA,

Two representatives of CDC issued conflicting statements on whether or not the CDC is making studies and tests on the safety of the Covid vaccine.

Senator Ron Johnson questioned CDC director Rochelle Walensky on the statement her organization made saying that there are tests being conducted on the safety of the Covid vaccine, and then the opposite was said by CDC Dr. Robert Su.

Read the full story here.

Flos Carmeli

Dear TIA,

The Hymn "Flos Carmeli" is wonderful. If I still had something to do with the FSSP choir here (and if I still had something to do with that parish,) we would be singing it soon and certainly next year for the Feast of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel.

     P.O.B.

An Example of How Female Teachers Used to Be Protected


Good evening TIA,

Here is a photo of a list of rules for teachers dating back to 1915 [reproduced below].. It is kept in an old red school house that has become a museum of how schools used to be.

These rules for teachers clearly show how different our mentalities were 100 years ago and how much more likely we were to protect women and children.

May we have a more elevated mentality like this in the Reign of Mary.

     In Maria,

     N.B.

Ecumenism Is Just Like Sports…


TIA,

Re: Catechesis of the Good Shepherd: Wrought with Errors

Thank you for posting your experience.

Reading the four experiences, and seeing the concern over faith formation influenced by other faith traditions, I was brought back to my own Catholic educational experience in the 1960s.

And reminded, oddly enough, of my love of football. Not to make things too simple, but those of us who embrace the sport (or really any other team sport) love, cheer and follow our teams. As do our rivals for theirs. However we find joy in the game regardless. And for those of us who played, we learn many of the same character qualities. As, I find, people of different faiths do.

As I have aged, seeing the Church as the sole source of reverence and revelation has been a non-stop journey into disappointment. Beyond clergy abuse, a doctrinaire acceptance, especially one fed by the accepted majesty of the words, has repeatedly revealed behavior and tendencies that are at odds with the gospel of love, truth and honesty.

Finally, before going too far in disparaging Montessori’s inclusion of other spiritual practices, please read The Mass Explained to Children. Montessori’s book and acceptance of the child as a moral being, is inspirational and may well address some of the concerns you have written.

     Best regards,

     M.N.

Religious Persecution in China Continues


TIA,

Despite the eagerness of the Vatican to renew its secret agreement with Communist China regarding the choice of new "Catholic" Bishops for China, the religious persecutions against the heroic Underground Chinese Catholic Church continues.

Please, pass on to your readers what just happened there, when the government destroyed the building of a parish whose pastor and congregation did not want to comply with the government directives.

I believe this article is very important to realize the tyranny of the government, the suffering of those Catholics, and the treason of the Vatican.

It confirms all you have been writing for decades about the Underground Church in China.

     May God and His Mother bless your apostolate.

Chinese Government Destroys Church for
Resisting Communist Party’s Demands


Tré Goins-Phillips

July 25, 2022 - Authorities in China’s Hebei province destroyed an underground Catholic church after its leader refused to fall in line with the country’s communist regime.

The underground Catholic congregation had been gathering in a temporary structure in the Youtong village of Luancheng District in the city of Shijiazhuang, according to a report from Radio Free Asia.

After the congregation failed to comply with the Chinese Catholic Patriotic Association, a state-sanctioned organization giving President Xi Jinping control over parishes in the communist country, authorities demolished the church while its leader, Dong Baolu, was in the hospital for hemiplegia.

Parishioners didn’t fight back against the demolition.

In 2020, the Vatican renewed a controversial agreement with the CCP. While the details of the deal have remained undisclosed, it grants the Chinese government permission to propose names for new bishops to the Vatican through its Catholic Patriotic Association. The pope has veto power over the final decision.

Catholic churches — like all houses of worship in the country — are only allowed to operate in China if they are registered with the communist government and under its control.

There are five controlling bodies in China: the Buddhist Association of China, the Chinese Taoist Association, the Islamic Association of China, the Protestant Three-Self Patriotic Movement, and the Chinese Patriotic Catholic Association.

As CBN News reported earlier this year, the CCP has exhibited quite an intense grip on believers, even to the point of rewriting Scripture through the lens of communism.

Todd Nettleton, spokesperson for the persecution watchdog Voice of the Martyrs, told CBN’s Faithwire, “This is a project that the Chinese Communist Party announced in 2019. At the time, they said it would be about a 10-year process … to release a new translation of the Bible.”

The censored version of the Bible will reportedly include Confucian and Buddhist ideals, ultimately establishing a reading of Scripture that “would really support the Communist Party,” Nettleton said.

“The issue for the Chinese Communist Party is control; it is always about control,” he explained of the CCP’s motivation for editing the Bible. “And they see the … Christian message as something that would take control away from the communist party.”
