The Pope’s Exorcist & Modernist Newman

Judgment of Nations

Dear TIA

I read your 9 articles on the Judgment of Nations by Margaret C. Galitzin. I really think this is the best explanation of what's going on, in our times, that I have come across.

I'm just curious as to who is Margaret C. Galitzin or what is her background? I guess what I mean is how is she an authority on this subject?




TIA responds:

Dear M.K.,

Thank you for your words of praise. We will pass the compliment to Miss Margaret Galitzin.

She is a long time collaborator of the TIA website who lives a retired life in the Los Angeles area. She does not pretend to have authority based on her intellectual background. This is why her articles are so well documented. They are based on the documents she presents, not on the titles of the author.

The Pope’s Exorcist


What do you think of the trailer of the movie The Pope’s Exorcist?



TIA responds:


This trailer/movie is already generating much interest in Catholic circles.

This is how it has been advertised: “Inspired by the actual files of Father Gabriele Amorth, Chief Exorcist of the Vatican (actor Russell Crowe), The Pope's Exorcist follows Amorth as he investigates a young boy’s terrifying possession and ends up uncovering a centuries-old conspiracy the Vatican has desperately tried to keep hidden.”

It seems to us a more professional repeat of the movie The Exorcist, released in 1973. The Exorcist was a film for an audience that enjoys horror movies. It was also based on a real case. Many of the people who viewed that movie without realizing its main goal had nightmares and some even began to fear that they were possessed.

Judging by the trailer, we guess that The Pope's Exorcist may be still more graphic and shocking in detail than the 1973 movie.

We believe that horror movies are a way to feed an audience with a macabre taste – hardly a Catholic characteristic – and make money on it. In the long run it is a way to prepare that audience to accept the appearance of the Devil.

Given the growing demonic influence in our days, it seems prudent to not view this Hollywood film meant to shock and frighten, rather than to edify souls and teach good doctrine.

Give Details on Newman’s Modernism

Dear Sir,

Would you please give us more details concerning Newman's Modernism?...

(Cf New Saints: A Lack of Consistency; TIA March 25th 2008)

Thank you for your answer.

     With my best wishes



TIA responds:

Dear P.C.,

A simple search on our site will reveal a wealth of documents and articles on Card. John Henry Newman.

We point you first to these articles The Liberal Newman Americans Do Not Know and Catholic Dogmas Come from ‘Intense Feelings’, and then this short book Another Look at John Henry Cardinal Newman. Another excellent article examines his beatification process: Doubts about Newman’s Beatification.

We have also a plethora of documents on various points of Newman’s Modernism: We believe this material will provide you with sufficient demonstration of Newman’s modernist ideas.

Imposter Sr. Lucy

Dear TIA,

I wish to add this message regarding the alleged "imposter" Sr Lucy.

Firstly, I would like to say that I am a born Catholic and my faith is strong. However, I would not describe myself as someone who is overly religious. I am just your ordinary person.

For many generations, my family being Portuguese has always had a strong faith in St. Anthony of Padua. I suppose one of the reasons is because St. Anthony was Portuguese. His first name is Fernando and he was known as St. Anthony. My name is Fernanda Antonia (named after him). Although my late husband is Buddhist, he too developed a strong faith in St. Anthony.

That said, when St. Anthony's relics were brought to Vancouver Canada about 5 maybe 6 years ago, my hubby, my daughter and myself went to all the churches where St. Anthony's relics were present. As I entered the first church, I was taken aback. The banners hanging in the church showed a picture of a nun. As I read the words on the banner, it said that this nun was Sr Lucy.

I immediately felt an awkward sense that something was not quite right - I thought to myself: this nun is too smiley, too pretty, too happy, too fair and her teeth too perfect to be Sr Lucy - but the photo clearly said Sr Lucy! - I could not look at the photo any more - it scared me! There was something weird about the photo. I was very very confused when I left the church.

When I got home, I stumbled upon the matter of an imposter Sr Lucy as I was looking up the story of Fatima. My fears fell into place, I was relieved to read about this imposter theory. It made sense to me. I looked further and found the death archives and found the death notice [entry 265] of Sr Lucy dated 1949.

To this day, the "imposter" Sr Lucy who died in 2005 has not been declared a saint. Have her remains ever been exhumed? Saints' remains when exhumed give off a sweet smell and their bodies are incorrupt. Could this be why one is fearful to expose the truth?
