“Do not heed BY WHOM a thing is said, BUT rather WHAT IS SAID.” (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Letter to Brother John; emphasis added.)

Proper Preparation

Exorcism

“Because your adversary the Devil, as a roaring lion, goeth about seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8), with his false accusations, lies, half-truths, subtle errors, confusion, equivocation, ambiguity, and emotionalism, we need to say the Exorcism Prayer daily.  Time limitations permit Us to say only the concluding Prayer.  We invite you to join Us.

In the Name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost.  Amen.


Saint Michael the Archangel

The Concluding Prayer to Saint Michael the Archangel

Come, O Holy Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle. Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of the Devil. Rebuke him, O God, we humbly beseech Thee; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly Hosts, by the Power of God, thrust into Hell Satan and all of the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen.


Patriarch Saint John Chrysostom

It was the custom of Patriarch Saint John Chrysostom [b. Antioch, c. 347 A.D. - d. at Commana in Pontus on Friday, September 14, 407 A.D.], Patriarch of Constantinople [Thursday, February 26, 398 A.D. - Thursday, June 24, 404 A.D.], exiled from his See the 2nd time on Thursday, June 24, 404 A.D., Father and Doctor of the Catholic Church, to properly prepare himself before writing or speaking.

He taught that unless God the Holy Ghost prepares the minds and hearts of the Writer or Speaker, and of the Reader or Listener, the Writer writes in vain, and the Reader reads in vain, just as the Speaker speaks in vain, and the Listener listens in vain.

Therefore, We invite you to join Us:


Prayer to God the Holy Ghost

Veni, Sancte Spiritus

Come, O Holy Ghost, fill the hearts of Thy Faithful and kindle in them the fire of Thy love.  Send forth Thy Spirit, and they shall be created.  And thou shalt renew the face of the earth.

Let us pray.

O God, Who didst instruct the hearts of Thy Faithful by the light of Thy Holy Spirit, grant us in the same Spirit to relish what is right and ever to rejoice in His consolation.  Through Christ Our Lord.  Amen.

Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, Pray for Us.
Saint Thomas Aquinas, Pray for Us.

Original Sin

Some of the effects of Original Sin include the fact that human nature has been wounded in various ways.  One of these ways is what some writers call ignorance or a proclivity or weakness towards ignorance. How did this happen?

Adam and Eve were infused by God with knowledge.  They did not need to go to school to learn anything.  They were given what is called "preternatural knowledge".  They were also preserved from death and had "preternatural health".  All of us would have inherited these great gifts IF Adam had not committed Original Sin!  This is how all of us lost these preternatural gifts and why all of us have to go to school to try to learn the Truth concerning certain subjects.

This translates as a greater difficulty, especially among people who have not received the Sacrament of Baptism, and even after Baptism by some people who are not Spiritual, to be able to always ascertain the Truth, in contradistinction to Error.  Intellects darkened by sin, especially by Mortal Sin, have a difficult time functioning properly in Souls which are grossly weakened by Mortal Sin.

Said another way, the mind of people whose Souls are Spiritually dead by Mortal Sin, and by those who still have Original Sin on their Souls, have a very difficult time being able to comprehend, or to otherwise clearly understand, the Truth in regard to certain subjects.

What compounds this problem is that some people are irrational and even unreasonable.  For example, some people demand that Catholics find in the Bible, word-for-word where it says explicitly:

Almighty God infuses an Immortal Soul into every human body at the moment of conception.
It is self-evident that this is irrational and unreasonable.  Over the course of many centuries, languages have changed and even some new alphabets have emerged.

One example is the language the ancient Romans used - Latin.  We understand that back in the 1950's it was still used in a few isolated villages in Switzerland, but nowhere else.  Today it is probably not used anywhere except by the Roman Catholic Church in her Liturgical Books, Scholastic Philosophy and Thomistic Theology Books, etc.  But it is not really a spoken language in the sense of common usage.

Consider English as another example.  Here is a copy of the oldest known poem in English.  How many Americans can read it?  After all, it IS written in English!

This epic English poem is called Beowulf.

Beowulf is an Old English epic poem consisting of 3182 alliterative lines. It may be the oldest surviving long poem in Old English and is commonly cited as one of the most important works of Old English literature. A date of composition is a matter of contention among scholars; the only certain dating pertains to the manuscript, which was produced between 975 and 1025.  The author was an anonymous Anglo-Saxon poet, referred to by scholars as the Beowulf poet.

Or, how about something more recent, IF you are having problems with Beowulf.  How about Chaucer's Canterbury Tales?

The Canterbury Tales are much easier since it was also written in English. It is a collection of 24 stories that runs to over 17,000 lines written in Middle English by Geoffrey Chaucer. In 1386, Chaucer became Controller of Customs and Justice of Peace and, three years later, Clerk of the King's work in 1389. It was during these years that Chaucer began working on this poem.

Those who are able to read it, realize that the types of expression, the psychology, the thought patterns, etc., are not exactly what one finds in America today.  Even books written by Lewis "Lew" Wallace, over a hundred years ago, like Ben Hur, reflect the culture of that time.

In other words, the instant computer culture of today is far different than the horse and buggy culture of the late 1800's here in the U.S.A., not to mention of just the last 20 to 40 years!

Therefore, any attempt to try to force our modern civilization back onto any point in time of history is sheer lunacy!  The same is true with what was written thousands of years before Beowulf - namely the first five books of the Bible, the Pentateuch.

Not only was the language different, the modern alphabet did not exist, the words were pronounced differently because they were not in modern English, the people of those days had a culture totally different than modern culture which meant their day-to-day vocabulary was obviously different, etc., etc.  Bottom line, all civilizations on the fact of the earth at that time were quite different and distinct from modern-day America.  Therefore, these differences, in translations of the original texts, cause problems with literal translations.  A more free or loose translation attempts to try to incorporate the meaning much more than the words.

Said another way, a thousand years from now, the people living then will have no idea of how to try to translate modern slang words like:  he's cool, he's a chip off the old block, etc.  4,000 years ago the population then would have had slang words they used for which no translator today has a clue as to their meaning!

Therefore, to attempt to compare modern American English with the ancient Hebrew texts of thousands of years ago, and, worse yet, to demand an exact word-for-word term like Almighty God infuses an Immortal Soul into every human body at the moment of conception, are in one word-NUTS!

Returning to the subject of ignorance, because we do not have the preternatural knowledge of Adam and Eve, all of us have to dedicate years to going to school to learn a few basics about various subjects, including Religion.

Religion includes the subject regarding the Truth that Almighty God infuses an Immortal Soul into every human body at the moment, or instant, of conception.  Too often such people are so deeply wounded by their various serious sins, that they are, at best, confused Souls who wander through life, somewhat similar to a person who has vision problems and is unable to see real objects, but with a degree of difficulty.  The Light of Truth hurts the proverbial eyes of the mind, or intellect, so to speak, of those who are in the darkness of ignorance, faithlessness, fear, and sin.

It was in regard to this situation that one author summarized this necessary distinction:

“There is sufficient light for those who wish to see
and sufficient obscurity for those who do not wish to see.”

(Blaise Pascal [b. at Clermont-Ferrand, France,
on Monday, June 19, 1623 - d. in Paris, France,
on Saturday, August 19, 1662],
Apologie de la religion Chrétienne
“Defense of the Christian Religion”:
original title: Pensées sur la Religion,
“Thoughts on Religion”, Section VII,
Morality and Doctrine, ¶ 430, 1660 A.D.).

Or, said another way, as in this graphic at the beginning of the famous movie, “The Song of Bernadette”,  concerning Our Lady of Lourdes:


For those who believe in God, no explanation is necessary.
For those who do not believe in God, no explanation is possible.”

This really summaries, in two sentences, why most people who do not believe in God are unable to comprehend, or otherwise, to properly understand, the Truth that Almighty God infuses an Immortal Soul into every human body at the moment, or instant, of conception.

What follows is mostly to provide proof for those who believe, although it is hoped that those who not believe will at least realize that those who do believe have real, objective facts, reasons, and basic Truths for their position which is in harmony, and consistent, with what the Roman Catholic Church teaches, and, therefore, why abortion is an evil sin, and a violation of the 5th Commandment of Almighty God:  “Thou shalt not kill.”

Excerpts
Abortion

“Abortion (from the Latin word aboriri, ‘to perish’) may be briefly defined as ‘the loss of a fetal life’.”

“It was long debated among the learned at what period of gestation the human embryo begins to be animated by the rational, spiritual soul, which elevates man above all other species of the animal creation and survives the body to live forever. The keenest mind among the ancient philosophers, Aristotle, had conjectured that the future child was endowed at conception with a principle of only vegetative life, which was exchanged after a few days for an animal soul, and was not succeeded by a rational soul till later; his followers said on the fortieth day for a male, and the eightieth for a female, child. The authority of his great name and the want of definite knowledge to the contrary caused this theory to be generally accepted up to recent times.”

“Yet, as early as the fourth century of the Christian era, St. Gregory of Nyssa had advocated the view which modern science has confirmed almost to a certainty, namely, that the same life principle quickens the organism from the first moment of its individual existence until its death (Eschbach, Disp. Phys., Disp., iii). Now it is at the very time of conception, or fecundation, that the embryo begins to live a distinct individual life. For life does not result from an organism when it has been built up, but the vital principle builds up the organism of its own body.”

“In virtue of the one eternal act of the Will of the Creator, Who is of course ever present at every portion of His creation, the soul of every new human being begins to exist when the cell which generation has provided is ready to receive it as its principle of life.”

“In the normal course of nature the living embryo carries on its work of [normal growth] within the maternal womb, deriving its nourishment from the placenta through the vital cord, till, on reaching maturity, it is by the contraction of the uterus issued to lead its separate life. Abortion is a fatal termination of this process.”

“It is evident that the determination of what is right or wrong in human conduct belongs to the science of ethics and the teaching of religious authority. Both of these declare the Divine law, ‘Thou shalt not kill’. The embryonic child, as seen above, has a human soul; and therefore is a man from the time of its conception; therefore it has an equal right to its life with its mother; therefore neither the mother, nor medical practitioner, nor any human being whatever can lawfully take that life away.”

“The State cannot give such right to the physician; for it has not itself the right to put an innocent person to death. No matter how desirable it might seem to be at times to save the life of the mother, common sense teaches and all nations accept the maxim, that ‘evil is never to be done that good may come of it’; or, which is the same thing, that ‘a good end cannot justify a bad means’. Now it is an evil means to destroy the life of an innocent child. The plea cannot be made that the child is an unjust aggressor. It is simply where nature and its own parents have put it. Therefore, Natural Law forbids any attempt at destroying fetal life.”

“The teachings of the Catholic Church admit of no doubt on the subject. Such moral questions, when they are submitted, are decided by the Tribunal of the Holy Office. Now this authority decreed, 28 May, 1884, and again, 18 August, 1889, that ‘it cannot be safely taught in Catholic schools that it is lawful to perform .... any surgical operation which is directly destructive of the life of the fetus or the mother.’”

“Abortion was condemned by name, 24 July, 1895, in answer to the question whether when the mother is in immediate danger of death and there is no other means of saving her life, a physician can with a safe conscience cause abortion not by destroying the child in the womb (which was explicitly condemned in the former decree), but by giving it a chance to be born alive, though not being yet viable, it would soon expire. The answer was that he cannot.”

“After these and other similar decisions had been given, some moralists thought they saw reasons to doubt whether an exception might not be allowed in the case of ectopic gestations. Therefore the question was submitted: ‘Is it ever allowed to extract from the body of the mother ectopic embryos still immature, before the sixth month after conception is completed?’ The answer given, 20 March, 1902, was: ‘No; according to the decree of 4 May, 1898; according to which, as far as possible, earnest and opportune provision is to be made to safeguard the life of the child and of the mother. As to the time, let the questioner remember that no acceleration of birth is licit unless it be done at a time, and in ways in which, according to the usual course of things, the life of the mother and the child be provided for’.”

“Ethics, then, and the Church agree in teaching that no action is lawful which directly destroys fetal life. It is also clear that extracting the living fetus before it is viable, is destroying its life as directly as it would be killing a grown man directly to plunge him into a medium in which he cannot live, and hold him there till he expires.”  (The Catholic Encyclopedia, Volume One, Aachen - Assize, published by  New York: Robert Appleton Company, 1907, article: “Abortion”, page 46, column 2-b, thru page 49, column 2-a, written by Father Charles Coppens, S.J.  This article was based on: “Moral Principles and Medical Practice, the Basis of Medical Jurisprudence”, by Charles Coppens, S.J., published at New York, Cincinnati, Chicago, by Benziger Brothers, Printers to the Holy Apostolic See, 1897, Lecture 3, “Abortion,” pp. 58-80.)  This book is available at:

Almighty God Infuses a Rational Immortal Soul
Into Every Human Body at the Moment of Conception
Proven by a Few Very Brief Theological Principles

At the Instant of the Divine Incarnation of Christ

At the instant of the Divine Incarnation of God the Son, Jesus Christ assumed a human nature which consisted of a rational human Soul and a physical human body.

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.... And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we saw His glory, the glory as it were of the Only-Begotten of the Father,) full of Grace and Truth.”  ( John 1:1, 14.)

Council of Chalcedon

“After an introductory statement that the bishops present accepted the Creeds of Nicaea (325) and Constantinople (381) and the decisions of Fphesus (431), as well as the dogmatic letter of Leo, the document proceeds:

‘Following, therefore, the holy fathers, we all confess and teach with one accord, one and the same Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, perfect in His Divinity and perfect in His humanity, true God and true man, having a rational Soul and a body, consubstantial with the Father in His Divinity and consubstantial with us in His humanity, like unto us in all things, sin alone excepted; in His Divinity, begotten of the Father before all ages, in His humanity, born for us and for our salvation, in these last days, of the Virgin Mary, Mother of God; one and the same Christ, Son, Lord, Only-begotten, to be confessed in two natures, without confusion, without change, division, or separation, for the union does not destroy the distinction of the natures, but rather each retains its own being and characteristics and is united to the other in one person and hypostasis - not as though divided or separated into two persons, but one and the same Son, the Only-begotten, God the Word, the Lord Jesus Christ, as the Prophets of old (have spoken), and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself has taught us, and as the Creed of the fathers has handed down to us.’ (Denzinger, “Enchiridion”, no. 148.).”  (“Disciplinary Decrees of the General Councils, Text, Translation, and Commentary”, by Rev. H. J. Schroeder, O.P., published by B. Herder Book Co., 15 & 17 South Broadway, St. Louis, Mo., and 33 Queen Square, London, W. C., 1937.  + Imprimatur, Sti. Ludovici, die 7. Aprilis,1937, + Joannes J. Glennon, Archiepiscopus, The Fourth General Council (451), Council of Chalcedon, p. 83; emphasis added.)

(Father Heinrich Joseph Dominicus Denzinger [b. at Liège, Belgium on Sunday, October 10, 1819 A.D. - d. at Würzburg, Bavaria, Germany on Tuesday, June 19, 1883 A.D.], “Enchiridion Symbolorum et Definitionum”, # 148).

Most Ancient Forms of the Apostolic Creed
The Creed “Quicumque”, a.k.a. “The Athanasian Creed”

“40. But it is necessary for eternal salvation that he faithfully believe also the incarnation of our Lord Jesus Christ. Accordingly it is the right faith, that we believe and confess, that our Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God is God and man. He is God begotten of the substance of the Father before time, and he is man born of the substance of his mother in time: perfect God, perfect man, consisting of a rational soul and a human body, equal to the Father according to his Godhead, less than the Father according to humanity. Although he is God and man, yet he is not two, but he is one Christ; one, however, not by the conversion of the Divinity into a human body, but by the assumption of humanity in the Godhead; one absolutely not by confusion of substance, but by unity of person. For just as the rational soul and body are one man, so God and man are one Christ. He suffered for our salvation, descended into hell, on the third day arose again from the dead, ascended to heaven, sits at the right hand of God the Father almighty; thence he shall come to judge the living and the dead; .at his coming all men have to arise again with their bodies and will render an account of their own deeds: and those who have done good, will go into life everlasting, but those who have done evil, into eternal fire.-This is the Catholic faith; unless every one believes this faithfully and firmly, he cannot be saved.”  (Father Heinrich Joseph Dominicus Denzinger [b. at Liège, Belgium on Sunday, October 10, 1819 A.D. - d. at Würzburg, Bavaria, Germany on Tuesday, June 19, 1883 A.D.], Enchiridion Symbolorum et Definitionum, Sources of Catholic Dogma, “Most Ancient Forms of the Apostolic Creed”, # 40, The Creed “Quicumque”, a.k.a. “The Athanasian Creed”; emphasis added.)

The Fourth Lateran Council, Canon I

“And finally, Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God made flesh by the entire Trinity, conceived with the co-operation of the Holy Ghost of Mary ever Virgin, made true man, composed of a rational soul and human flesh, one Person in two natures, pointed out more clearly the way of life.”  (“Disciplinary Decrees of the General Councils, Text, Translation, and Commentary”, by Rev. H. J. Schroeder, O.P., published by B. Herder Book Co., 15 & 17 South Broadway, St. Louis, Mo., and 33 Queen Square, London, W. C., 1937.  + Imprimatur, Sti. Ludovici, die 7. Aprilis,1937, + Joannes J. Glennon, Archiepiscopus,  The Twelfth General Council (1215), The Fourth Lateran Council, Canon I,  p. 238; emphasis added.)

Christ’s Human Nature is Consubstantial with Our Human Nature

Christ’s human nature is consubstantial with our human nature in all respects except for sin.

Council of Chalcedon

“After an introductory statement that the bishops present accepted the Creeds of Nicaea (325) and Constantinople (381) and the decisions of Fphesus (431), as well as the dogmatic letter of Leo, the document proceeds:

‘Following, therefore, the holy fathers, we all confess and teach with one accord, one and the same Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, perfect in His Divinity and perfect in His humanity, true God and true man, having a rational Soul and a body, consubstantial with the Father in His Divinity and consubstantial with us in His humanity, like unto us in all things, sin alone excepted; in His Divinity, begotten of the Father before all ages, in His humanity, born for us and for our salvation, in these last days, of the Virgin Mary, Mother of God; one and the same Christ, Son, Lord, Only-begotten, to be confessed in two natures, without confusion, without change, division, or separation, for the union does not destroy the distinction of the natures, but rather each retains its own being and characteristics and is united to the other in one person and hypostasis - not as though divided or separated into two persons, but one and the same Son, the Only-begotten, God the Word, the Lord Jesus Christ, as the Prophets of old (have spoken), and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself has taught us, and as the Creed of the fathers has handed down to us.’ (Denzinger, “Enchiridion”, no. 148.).”  (“Disciplinary Decrees of the General Councils, Text, Translation, and Commentary”, by Rev.

Aprilis,1937, + Joannes J. Glennon, Archiepiscopus, The Fourth General Council (451), Council of Chalcedon, p. 83; emphasis added.)

Christ’s Human Nature was Created at the Moment of the Incarnation

The Fourth Lateran Council, Canon I

“And finally, Jesus Christ, the only begotten Son of God made flesh by the entire Trinity, conceived with the co-operation of the Holy Ghost of Mary ever Virgin, made true man, composed of a rational soul and human flesh, one Person in two natures, pointed out more clearly the way of life.”  (“Disciplinary Decrees of the General Councils, Text, Translation, and Commentary”, by Rev. H. J. Schroeder, O.P., published by B. Herder Book Co., 15 & 17 South Broadway, St. Louis, Mo., and 33 Queen Square, London, W. C., 1937.  + Imprimatur, Sti. Ludovici, die 7. Aprilis,1937, + Joannes J. Glennon, Archiepiscopus,  The Twelfth General Council (1215), The Fourth Lateran Council, Canon I,  p. 238; emphasis added.)

“On the contrary, Gregory [the Great] says (Moral. xviii): ‘As soon as the angel announced it, as soon as the Spirit came down, the Word was in the womb, within the womb the Word was made flesh.’”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., [b. 1225 A.D. in Rocca Secca, Naples, Italy - d. Wednesday, March 7, 1274 A.D. in Fossa Nuova, Italy], Doctor of the Church: “Angelic Doctor”, “Common Doctor”; “Summa Theologica”,  Part III, Question 33, Article 1, Reply to Objection 3, On the Contrary.).

“On the contrary, [Saint John] Damascene says (De Fide Orth. iii): ‘At the very instant that there was flesh, it was the flesh of the Word of God, it was flesh animated with a rational and intellectual soul.’”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., “Summa Theologica”, Part III, Question 33, Article 2, On the Contrary.).

“On the contrary, [Saint] Augustine says (De Fide ad Petrum xviii [N.B.  This was actually written by Saint Fulgentius, a Bishop in Africae]): ‘Hold steadfastly, and doubt not for a moment that Christ's flesh was not conceived in the Virgin’s womb, before being assumed by the Word.’”  (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., “Summa Theologica”, Part III, Question 33, Article 3, On the Contrary.).

Conclusion

Just as the human life of Jesus Christ, united with a rational, immortal Soul to a human body, began at His incarnation/conception, the same is also true for every human being whose rational, immortal Soul is also united to a human body, which is also at the instant of conception.

Sacred Scripture Passages
Regarding the Sacredness of Life

Old Testament

Genesis

Genesis 1:26-28

“And He [God] said: Let Us [the Holy Trinity] make man to Our image and likeness: and let him have dominion over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and the beasts, and the whole earth, and every creeping creature that moveth upon the earth.  And God created man to His own image: to the image of God, He created him: male and female He created them.  And God Blessed them, saying: Increase and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it, and rule over the fishes of the sea, and the fowls of the air, and all living creatures that move upon the earth.”  (Genesis 1:26-28; emphasis added).

Genesis 2:7-8

“And the Lord God formed man of the slime of the earth:  and breathed into his face the breath of life, and man became a living Soul.  And the Lord God had planted a paradise of pleasure from the beginning: wherein He placed man whom He had formed.”  (Genesis 2:7-8).

Genesis 2:18

“And the Lord God said: It is not good for man to be alone: let Us [the Holy Trinity] make him a helper like unto himself.”  (Genesis 2:18; emphasis added).

Genesis 2:20-24

“But for Adam there was not found a helper like himself.  Then the Lord God cast a deep sleep upon Adam: and when he was fast asleep, He took one of his ribs, and filled up flesh for it.  And the Lord God built the rib which He took from Adam into a Woman: and brought her to Adam.   And Adam said: This now is bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh; she shall be called ‘woman’, because she was taken out of man.  Wherefore, a man shall leave Father and Mother, and shall cleave to his Wife: and they shall be two in one flesh.”  (Genesis 2:20-24).

Genesis 4:8-12

“And Cain said to Abel, his Brother: Let us go forth abroad. And when they were in the field, Cain rose up against his Brother Abel, and slew him.  And the Lord said to Cain: Where is thy Brother, Abel?  And he answered: I know not: am I my Brother’s keeper?  And He [God] said to him [Cain]: What hast thou done? The voice of thy Brother’s blood crieth to Me from the earth.  Now, therefore, cursed shalt thou be upon the earth, which hath opened her mouth and received the blood of thy Brother at thy hand.  When thou shalt till it, it shall not yield to thee its fruit: a fugitive and a vagabond shalt thou be upon the earth.”  (Genesis 4:8-12; emphasis added).

Exodus

Exodus 20:1-22

“And the Lord spoke all these words:  I am the Lord, thy God, Who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage.  Thou shalt not have strange gods before Me.  Thou shalt not make to thyself a graven thing, nor the likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or in the earth beneath, nor of those things that are in the waters under the earth. Thou shalt not adore them, nor serve them: I am the Lord thy God, mighty, jealous, visiting the iniquity of the Fathers upon the Children, unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me.”

[Note: All such images, or likenesses, which are made to be adored and served, and/or to be worshipped with divine honor, are forbidden by this commandment.  However, images, pictures, and/or various representations, are not only permitted, they are authorized by the Word of God, even in the House of God, and even in the Sanctuary.
Examples: “And the Lord said to him [Moses]: Make a brazen serpent, and set it up for a sign: whosoever being struck shall look on it, shall live.  Moses therefore made a brazen serpent, and set it up for a sign: which when they that were bitten looked upon, they were healed”. (Numbers 21-8-9).  The “brazen serpent” was a figure of Christ on the Cross:   “And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the desert, so must the Son of man be lifted up.”  (John 3:14).

“And for the altar of incense, he gave the purest gold: and to make the likeness of the chariot of the cherubims spreading their wings, and covering the Ark of the Covenant of the Lord.  All these things, said he, came to me written by the hand of the Lord that I might understand all the works of the pattern [of the images].”  (1 Paralipomenon 28:18-19).

“He made also in the House of the Holy of Holies, two cherubims [angels] of image work: and he overlaid them with gold.  The wings of the cherubims were extended twenty cubits, so that one wing was five cubits long, and reached to the wall of the house: and the other was also five cubits long, and reached to the wing of the other cherub. In like manner the wing of the other cherub, was five cubits long, and reached to the wall: and his other wing was five cubits long, and touched the wing of the other cherub.  So the wings of the two cherubims were spread forth, and were extended twenty cubits: and they stood upright on their feet, and their faces were turned toward the House without.” (2 Paralipomenon 3:10-13).]

“And shewing mercy unto thousands to them that love Me, and Keep My Commandments.  Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain: for the Lord will not hold him guiltless that shall take the name of the Lord his God in vain.  Remember that thou keep Holy the Sabbath day.  Six days shalt thou labour, and shalt do all thy works.  But on the seventh day is the Sabbath of the Lord thy God: thou shalt do no work on it, thou nor thy Son, nor thy Daughter, nor thy Manservant, nor thy Maidservant, nor thy beast, nor the stranger that is within thy gates.  For in six days the Lord made heaven and earth, and the sea, and all things that are in them, and rested on the seventh day: therefore the Lord Blessed the seventh day, and sanctified it. Honour thy Father and thy Mother, that thou mayest be long-lived upon the land which the Lord thy God will give thee.  Thou shalt not kill.  Thou shalt not commit adultery. Thou shalt not steal.  Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.  Thou shalt not covet thy neighbor's house; neither shalt thou desire his wife, nor his servant, nor his handmaid, nor his ox, nor his ass, nor any thing that is his.  And all the people saw the voices and the flames, and the sound of the trumpet, and the mount smoking; and being terrified and struck with fear, they stood afar off, saying to Moses: Speak thou to us, and we will hear: let not the Lord speak to us, lest we die. And Moses said to the people: Fear not; for God is come to prove you, and that the dread of Him might be in you, and you should not sin.  And the people stood afar off. But Moses went to the dark cloud wherein God was. And the Lord said to Moses: Thus shalt thou say to the Children of Israel: You have seen that I have spoken to you from Heaven.”  (Exodus 20:1-22; emphasis added).

Leviticus

Leviticus 19:15-18

“Thou shalt not do that which is unjust, nor judge unjustly.  Respect not the person of the poor: nor honour the countenance of the mighty. But judge thy neighbor according to justice.  Thou shalt not be a detractor nor a whisperer among the people. Thou shalt not stand against the blood of thy neighbor.  I am the Lord.  Thou shalt not hate thy Brother in thy heart: But reprove him openly, lest thou incur sin through him.  Seek not revenge, nor be mindful of the injury of thy citizens. Thou shalt love thy friend as thyself. I am the Lord.”  (Leviticus 19:15-18; emphasis added).

Deuteronomy

Deuteronomy 30:15-20

“Consider that I have set before thee this day life and good, and on the other hand death and evil:  That thou mayest love the Lord thy God, and walk in His ways, and keep His Commandments and Ceremonies and Judgments, and Bless thee in the land, which thou shalt go in to possess.  But if thy heart be turned away, so that thou wilt not hear, and being deceived with error thou adore strange gods, and serve them:  I foretell thee this day that thou shalt perish, and shalt remain but a short time in the land, to which thou shalt pass over the Jordan, and shalt go in to possess it.  I call heaven and earth to witness this day, that I have set before you life and death, Blessing and cursing. Choose therefore life, that both thou and thy seed may live:  And that thou mayest love the Lord thy God, and obey His voice, and adhere to Him (for He is thy life, and the length of thy days,) that thou mayest dwell in the land, for which the Lord swore to thy Fathers Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, that He would give it them.”  (Deuteronomy 30:15-20; emphasis added).
 
 

Psalms

Psalm 138
Domine, probasti
Prove me, O God

Psalm 138:5; 13-16.

“138:5. Behold, O Lord, Thou hast known all things, the last and those of old: Thou hast formed me, and hast laid Thy hand upon me.”

“138:13. For Thou hast possessed my reins: Thou hast protected me from my Mother’s womb.”

“138:14. I will praise Thee, for Thou art fearfully magnified: wonderful are Thy works, and my Soul knoweth right well.”

“138:15. My bone is not hidden from Thee, which Thou hast made in secret: and my substance in the lower parts of the earth.”

“138:16. Thy eyes did see my imperfect being, and in Thy book all shall be written: days shall be formed, and no one in them.”

NOTE:  “Ver. 13.  Reins...  Theod. [Theodoret] ‘Nothing seems more hidden than... a child in his mother’s womb, who is formed by God, verse 16.’” (Haydock Catholic Bible Commentary, Psalm 138:13, 16.)

Proverbs

Proverbs 6:16-19

Six things there are, which the Lord hateth, and the seventh His Soul detesteth:  Haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that deviseth wicked plots, feet that are swift to run into mischief, a deceitful witness that uttereth lies, and him that soweth discord among brethren.”  (Proverbs 6:16-19; emphasis added.)

Wisdom

Wisdom 1:12-15

Seek not death in the error of your life, neither procure ye destruction by the works of your hands.  For God made not death, neither hath he pleasure in the destruction of the living.  For He created all things that they might be: and he made the nations of the earth for health: and there is no poison of destruction in them, nor kingdom of hell upon the earth.  For justice is perpetual and immortal.”  (Wisdom 1:12-15; emphasis added.)

Wisdom 7:1-6

“I myself also am a mortal man, like all others, and of the race of him, that was first made of the earth, and in the womb of my Mother I was fashioned to be flesh.  In the time of ten months I was compacted in blood, of the seed of man, and the pleasure of sleep concurring.  And being born, I drew in the common air, and fell upon the earth, that is made alike, and the first voice which I uttered was crying, as all others do. I was nursed in swaddling clothes, and with great cares. For none of the kings had any other beginning of birth. For all men have one entrance into life, and the like going out.” (Wisdom 7:1-6; emphasis added.)

[Note: This last verse is saying that each person is born only once and dies only once.  In other words, this refutes reincarnation.]
Ecclesiasticus

Ecclesiasticus 1:16

The fear of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom, and was created with the Faithful in the womb, it walketh with chosen women, and is known with the just and Faithful.”  (Ecclesiasticus 1:16; emphasis added).

Isaias

Isaias 49:1; 49:5

“Give ear, ye islands, and hearken, ye people from afar. The Lord hath called me from the womb....  And now saith the Lord, that formed me from the womb to be his servant, that I may bring back Jacob unto him, and Israel will not be gathered together: and I am glorified in the eyes of the Lord, and my God is made my strength.”  (Isaias 49:1; 49:5; emphasis added.)

Isaias 49:15

Can a woman forget her infant, so as not to have pity on the son of her womb? and if she should forget, yet will not I forget thee.”   (Isaias 49:15; emphasis added.)

Jeremias

Jeremias 1:4-5

“And the Word of the Lord came to me, saying: Before I formed thee in the womb of thy Mother, I knew thee: and before thou camest forth out of the womb, I sanctified thee, and made thee a Prophet unto the nations.”  (Jeremias 1:4-5; emphasis added).

Jeremias 7:23-34

“But this thing I commanded them, saying: Hearken to My voice, and I will be your God, and you shall be My people: and walk ye in all the way that I have commanded you, that it may be well with you.  But they hearkened not, nor inclined their ear: but walked in their own will, and in the perversity of their wicked heart: and went backward and not forward, from the day that their Fathers came out of the land of Egypt, even to this day. And I have sent to you all My servants the Prophets, from day to day, rising up early and sending.  And they have not hearkened to Me: nor inclined their ear: but have hardened their neck, and have done worse than their Fathers.  And thou shalt speak to them all these words, but they will not hearken to thee: and thou shalt call them, but they will not answer thee.  And thou shalt say to them: This is a nation which hath not hearkened to the Voice of the Lord their God, nor received instruction: Faith is lost, and is taken away out of their mouth. Cut off thy hair, and cast it away: and take up a lamentation on high: for the Lord hath rejected, and forsaken the Generation of His Wrath, because the Children of Juda have done evil in My eyes, saith the Lord. They have set their abominations in the House in which My name is called upon, to pollute it.”

[Note: This is also a reference to the Prophecy of Daniel concerning the Abomination of Desolation:
In the half of the week the Victim and the Sacrifice shall fail: and there shall be in the temple the Abomination of Desolation: and the desolation shall continue even to the consummation, and to the end.” (Daniel 9:27).

They shall defile the Sanctuary of Strength, and shall take away the Continual Sacrifice: and they shall place there the Abomination unto Desolation.” Daniel 11:31).

The Jews never had the “Continual Sacrifice” of the “Clean Oblation” of the Gentiles, as Prophecized by Malachias:
For, from the rising of the sun, even to the going down, My Name is great among the Gentiles, and in every place there is Sacrifice, and there is offered to my name a Clean Oblation: for My Name is great among the Gentiles, saith the Lord of hosts.” (Malachias 1:11).

This is a Prophecy about the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, which would eventually be Offered every hour of the day and night around the entire world before Synod Vatican 2.

But the Prophecy of Daniel warns all Catholics about how the “Sanctuary” would be defiled by “the Abomination of Desolation” - a Prophecy of the NEW mass and, in effect, the NEW sacraments, all of which have clearly polluted and defiled the New Testament “Sanctuary of Strength”, the Catholic Traditional Sanctuary, the “Holy of Holies” of the New  Covenant.]

“And they have built the high places of Topheth, which is in the valley of the Son of Ennom, to burn their Sons, and their Daughters in the fire: which I commanded not, nor thought on in My heart.  Therefore behold the days shall come, saith the Lord, and it shall no more be called Topheth, nor the valley of the son of Ennom: but the valley of slaughter: and they shall bury in Topheth, because there is no place.   And the carcasses of this people shall be meat for the fowls of the air, and for the beasts of the earth, and there shall be none to drive them away.  And I will cause to cease, out of the cities of Juda, and out of the streets of Jerusalem, the voice of joy, and the voice of gladness, the voice of the Bridegroom and the voice of the Bride: for the land shall be desolate.”  (Jeremias 7:23-34; emphasis added).

[Note:  This last verse seems to also prophecize the fate of all “abortion countries” where “the carcasses of this people shall be meat for the fowls of the air, and for the beasts of the earth, and there shall be none to drive them away.”  Thus, a Prophecy of the wrath of God which will come upon abortionists!  Is this the meaning of Our Lady of Fatima who said that  Certain nations will be annihilated?]

Ezechiel

Ezechiel 23:36-39

“And the Lord spoke to me, saying: Son of man, dost thou judge Oolla, and Ooliba, and dost thou declare to them their wicked deeds?  Because they have committed adultery, and blood is in their hands, and they have committed fornication with their idols: moreover also their Children, whom they bore to Me, they have offered to them to be devoured.  Yea, and they have done this to Me. They polluted My Sanctuary on the same day, and profaned My Sabbaths.  And when they sacrificed their Children to their idols, and went into My Sanctuary the same day to profane it: they did these things even in the midst of My House.”  (Ezechiel 23:36-39; emphasis added).


New Testament

Saint Matthew
Gospel

Matthew 16:26-27

“For what doth it profit a man, if he gain the whole world, and suffer the loss of his own SoulOr what exchange shall a man give for his Soul?  For the Son of man shall come in the glory of His Father with His Angels:  and then will he render to every man according to his works.”  (Matthew 16:26-27; emphasis added).

Matthew 18:1-6

“At that hour the Disciples came to Jesus, saying:  Who thinkest Thou is the greater in the Kingdom of Heaven?   And Jesus calling unto Him a little Child, set him in the midst of them, and said:  Amen I say to you, unless you be converted, and become as little Children, you shall not enter into the Kingdom of HeavenWhosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little Child, he is the greater in the Kingdom of Heaven.   And he that shall receive one such little Child in My Name, receiveth Me.   But he that shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in Me, it were better for him that a millstone should be hanged about his neck, and that he should be drowned in the depth of the sea.”  (Matthew 18:1-6; emphasis added).

Matthew 18:10-14

See that you despise not one of these little ones:  for I say to you, that their Angels in Heaven always see the face of My Father Who is in Heaven.  For the Son of man is come to save that which was lost.   What think you?  If a man have an hundred sheep, and one of them should go astray:  doth he not leave the ninety-nine in the mountains, and go to seek that which is gone astray?  And if it so be that he find it:  Amen I say to you, he rejoiceth more for that, than for the ninety-nine that went not astray.  Even so it is not the will of your Father, Who is in Heaven, that one of these Little Ones should perish.”  (Matthew 18:10-14; emphasis added.)

Matthew 25:31-46

“And when the Son of man shall come in His Majesty, and all the Angels with Him, then shall He sit upon the Seat of His Majesty.   And all nations shall be gathered together before Him, and He shall separate them one from another, as the shepherd separateth the sheep from the goats.  And He shall set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on his left.  Then shall the King say to them that shall be on His right hand:  Come,  ye Blessed of My Father, possess you the Kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world.   For I was hungry, and you gave Me to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me to drink; I was a stranger, and you took Me in: naked, and you covered Me:  sick, and you visited Me:  I was in prison, and you came to Me.  Then shall the Just answer Him, saying:  Lord, when did we see Thee hungry, and fed Thee; thirsty, and gave Thee drink?  And when did we see Thee a stranger, and took Thee in?  Or naked, and covered Thee? Or when did we see Thee sick or in prison, and came to Thee? And the King answering, shall say to them:  Amen I say to you, as long as you did it to one of these, My least brethren, you did it to Me. Then He shall say to them also that shall be on His left hand:  Depart from Me, you cursed, into everlasting fire which was prepared for the Devil and his angels.   For I was hungry, and you gave Me not to eat:  I was thirsty, and you gave Me not to drink.  I was a stranger, and you took Me not in:  naked, and you covered Me not:  sick and in prison, and you did not visit Me.   Then they also shall answer Him, saying:  Lord, when did we see Thee hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister to Thee?  Then He shall answer them, saying:  Amen I say to you, as long as you did it not to one of these least, neither did you do it to Me.   And these shall go into everlasting punishment:  but the Just, into life everlasting.” (Matthew 25:31-46; emphasis added).

Saint Mark
Gospel

Mark 10:13-16

“And they brought to Him young Children, that He might touch them.  And the Disciples rebuked them that brought them.  Whom, when Jesus saw, He was much displeased, and saith to them:  Suffer the Little Children to come unto Me, and forbid them not; for of such is the Kingdom of God. Amen I say to you, whosoever shall not receive the Kingdom of God as a Little Child, shall not enter into it.  And embracing them, and laying His hands upon them, He Blessed them.” (Mark 10:13-16).

Saint Luke
Gospel

Luke 1:39-45

“And Mary, rising up in those days, went into the hill country with haste into a city of Juda.  And she entered into the house of Zachary, and saluted Elizabeth.   And it came to pass, that when Elizabeth heard the salutation of Mary, the Infant leaped in her womb.  And Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Ghost:  And she cried out with a loud voice, and said:  Blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb. And whence is this to me, that the Mother of my Lord should come to me? For behold as soon as the voice of thy salutation sounded in my ears, the Infant in my womb leaped for joy.  And Blessed art thou that hast believed, because those things shall be accomplished that were spoken to thee by the Lord.”  (Luke 1:39-45; emphasis added.)

Luke 6:19-23

“And all the multitude sought to touch Him, for Virtue went out from Him, and healed all.  And He, lifting up His eyes on His Disciples, said:  Blessed are ye poor, for yours is the Kingdom of GodBlessed are ye that hunger now:  for you shall be filledBlessed are ye that weep now:  for you shall laughBlessed shall you be when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake. Be glad in that day and rejoice; for behold, your reward is great in Heaven.”  (Luke 6:19-23; emphasis added.)

Luke 10:25-37

“And behold a certain lawyer stood up, tempting Him, and saying, Master, what must I do to possess eternal life?  But He said to him:  What is written in the law?  how readest thou?  He answering, said:  Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole Soul, and with all thy strength, and with all thy mind:  and thy neighbor as thyself.  And He said to him:  Thou hast answered right: this do, and thou shalt live.  But he willing to justify himself, said to Jesus:  And who is my neighbor?  And Jesus answering, said:  A certain man went down from Jerusalem to Jericho, and fell among robbers, who also stripped him, and having wounded him went away, leaving him half dead.  And it chanced, that a certain priest went down the same way:  and seeing him, passed by.  In like manner also a Levite, when he was near the place and saw him, passed by.  But a certain Samaritan, being on his journey, came near him; and seeing him, was moved with compassion.   And going up to him, bound up his wounds, pouring in oil and wine:  and setting him upon his own beast, brought him to an inn, and took care of him.   And the next day he took out two pence, and gave to the host, and said:  Take care of him; and whatsoever thou shalt spend over and above, I, at my return, will repay thee.  Which of these three, in thy opinion, was neighbor to him that fell among the robbers?   But he said: He that shewed Mercy to him.  And Jesus said to him:  Go, and do thou in like manner.” (Luke 10:25-37; emphasis added).

Luke 16:19-31

There was a certain rich man, who was clothed in purple and fine linen; and feasted sumptuously every dayAnd there was a certain beggar, named Lazarus, who lay at his gate, full of sores, desiring to be filled with the crumbs that fell from the rich man's table, and no one did give him; moreover the dogs came, and licked his sores.  And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the Angels into Abraham’s bosom.  And the rich man also died:  and he was buried in Hell.  And lifting up his eyes when he was in torments, he saw Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom:  And he cried, and said:  Father Abraham, have Mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, to cool my tongue:  for I am tormented in this flame.  And Abraham said to him:  Son, remember that thou didst receive good things in thy lifetime, and likewise Lazarus evil things, but now he is comforted; and thou art tormented.  And besides all this, between us and you, there is fixed a great chaos:  so that they who would pass from hence to you, cannot, nor from thence come hither.  And he said:  Then, Father, I beseech thee, that thou wouldst send him to my Father's house, for I have five brethren, that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torments.  And Abraham said to him:  They have Moses and the Prophets; let them hear them.  But he said:  No, Father Abraham:  but if one went to them from the dead, they will do penance.  And he said to him:  If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they believe, if one rise again from the dead.”  (Luke 16:19-31; emphasis added.)

Saint John
Gospel

John 1:1-14

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.   The same was in the beginning with God.   All things were made by Him:  and without Him was made nothing that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the Light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.  There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.  This man came for a witness, to give testimony of the Light, that all men might believe through him.   He was not the Light, but was to give testimony of the Light. That was the True Light, which enlighteneth every man that cometh into this world.  He was in the world, and the world was made by Him, and the world knew Him not.  He came unto His own, and His own received Him not.  But as many as received Him, He gave them power to be made the Sons of God, to them that believe in His Name.   Who are born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of God.  And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we saw His glory, the glory as it were of the Only Begotten of the Father,) full of Grace and Truth.”  (John 1:1-14; emphasis added.)

John 10:7-15

“Jesus therefore said to them again:  Amen, amen I say to you, I am the Door of the Sheep.   All others, as many as have come, are thieves and robbers:  and the sheep heard them not.   I am the Door.  By Me, if any man enter in, he shall be saved:  and he shall go in, and go out, and shall find pastures.   The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy.  I am come that they may have life, and may have it more abundantly.   I am the Good Shepherd.  The Good Shepherd giveth His life for His sheep.  But the hireling, and he that is not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and flieth:  and the wolf catcheth, and scattereth the sheep:   And the hireling flieth, because he is a hireling:  and he hath no care for the sheep.  I am the Good Shepherd; and I know Mine, and Mine know Me.  As the Father knoweth Me, and I know the Father:  and I lay down My life for My sheep.”  (John 10:7-15; emphasis added.)

John 11:17-27

“Jesus therefore came, and found that he [Lazarus] had been four days already in the grave.  (Now Bethania was near Jerusalem, about fifteen furlongs off.)   And many of the Jews were come to Martha and Mary, to comfort them concerning their Brother.   Martha therefore, as soon as she heard that Jesus had come, went to meet Him:  but Mary sat at home.   Martha therefore said to Jesus:  Lord, if thou hadst been here, my Brother had not died.   But now also I know that whatsoever Thou wilt ask of God, God will give it Thee.  Jesus saith to her:  Thy Brother shall rise again.   Martha saith to Him:  I know that he shall rise again, in the Resurrection at the last day. Jesus said to her:  I am the Resurrection and the Life:  he that believeth in Me, although he be dead, shall live:   And every one that liveth, and believeth in Me, shall not die for ever.  Believest thou this?   She saith to Him:  Yea, Lord, I have believed that Thou art Christ, the Son of the living God, Who art come into this world.” (John 11:17-27; emphasis added).

John 14:1-6

“Let not your heart be troubled.  You believe in God, believe also in Me.  In My Father’s House there are many mansions.  If not, I would have told you:  because I go to prepare a place for you.   And if I shall go, and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and will take you to Myself; that where I am, you also may be.   And whither I go, you know, and the way you know.   Thomas saith to Him:  Lord, we know not whither Thou goest; and how can we know the way? Jesus saith to him:  I am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life.  No man cometh to the Father, but by Me.”  (John 14:1-6; emphasis added.)

Saint Paul
Epistle

 Galatians  1:15

It pleased Him, Who separated me from my Mother’s womb, and called me by His Grace.”  (Galatians 1:15; emphasis added.)

Saint Paul
Epistle

 Ephesians 1:3-5

“Blessed by the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who hath Blessed us with Spiritual Blessings in heavenly places, in Christ: As He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be Holy and unspotted in His sight in charity.  Who hath predestinated us unto the adoption of children through Jesus Christ unto Himself:  according to the purpose of His will.”  (Ephesians 1:3-5; emphasis added.)

Saint James the Just
Epistle

James 1:22-27

“But be ye doers of the Word, and not hearers only, deceiving your own selves.   For if a man be a hearer of the Word, and not a doer, he shall be compared to a man beholding his own countenance in a glass [a mirror].    For he beheld himself, and went his way, and presently forgot what manner of man he was.   But he that hath looked into the perfect law of liberty, and hath continued therein, not becoming a forgetful hearer, but a doer of the work; this man shall be Blessed in his deed.    And if any man think himself to be Religious, not bridling his tongue, but deceiving his own heart, this man’s religion is vain.  Religion clean and undefiled before God and the Father, is this:  to visit the Fatherless and Widows in their tribulation:  and to keep one’s self unspotted from this world.”  (James 1:22-27; emphasis added.)

Saint John
First Epistle

1 John 3:1-18

“Behold what manner of Charity the Father hath bestowed upon us, that we should be called, and should be the Sons of God. Therefore the world knoweth not us, because it knew not Him [Christ].  Dearly Beloved, we are now the Sons of God; and it hath not yet appeared what we shall be. We know, that, when He shall appear, we shall be like to Him: because we shall see Him as He is. And every one that hath this Hope in Him, sanctifieth himself, as He also is Holy. Whosoever committeth sin, commmitteth also iniquity; and sin is iniquity. And you know that He appeared to take away our sins, and in Him there is no sin.  Whosoever abideth in Him, sinneth not; and whosoever sinneth, hath not seen Him, nor known Him. Little Children, let no man deceive you. He that doth Justice is just, even as He is just. He that commmitteth sin is of the Devil: for the Devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose, the Son of God appeared, that He might destroy the works of the Devil. Whosoever is born of God, commmitteth not sin: for his seed abideth in him, and he can not sin, because he is born of God.  In this the Children of God are manifest, and the children of the Devil. Whosoever is not just, is not of God, nor he that loveth not his Brother. For this is the declaration, which you have heard from the beginning, that you should love one another.  Not as Cain, who was of the wicked one, and killed his Brother. And wherefore did he kill him? Because his own works were wicked: and his Brother’s just.  Wonder not, Brethren, if the world hate you.  We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love the Brethren. He that loveth not, abideth in death. Whosoever hateth his Brother is a murderer. And you know that no murderer hath eternal life abiding in himself.  In this we have known the Charity of God, because He hath laid down His life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the Brethren.  He that hath the substance of this world, and shall see his Brother in need, and shall shut up his bowels from him: how doth the Charity of God abide in him?  My Little Children, let us not love in word, nor in tongue, but in deed, and in Truth.” (1 John 3:1-18; emphasis added).

Saint John
Apocalypse

Apocalypse  4:8-11

“And the four living creatures had each of them six wings; and round about and within they are full of eyes.  And they rested not day and night, saying:  Holy, Holy, Holy, Lord God Almighty, Who was, and Who is, and Who is to come.  And when those living creatures gave glory, and honor, and Benediction to Him that sitteth on the Throne, Who liveth for ever and ever;   The four and twenty Ancients fell down before Him that sitteth on the Throne, and Adored Him that liveth for ever and ever, and cast their crowns before the Throne, saying:  Thou art worthy, O Lord our God, to receive glory, and honor, and power:  because Thou hast created all things; and for Thy will they were, and have been created.”  (Apocalypse  4:8-11;  emphasis added).

Apocalypse  21:1-5

“And I saw a new heaven and a new earth.  For the first heaven and the first earth was gone, and the sea is now no more.   And I, John, saw the Holy City, the New Jerusalem, coming down out of Heaven from God, prepared as a Bride adorned for her Husband.  And I heard a Great Voice from the Throne, saying:  Behold the tabernacle of God with men, and He will dwell with them.  And they shall be His people; and God Himself with them shall be their God.   And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes: and death shall be no more, nor mourning, nor crying, nor sorrow shall be any more, for the former things are passed away.  And He that sat on the Throne, said:  Behold, I make all things new.  And He said to me:  Write, for these words are most faithful and true.”  (Apocalypse  21:1-5; emphasis added).

Dear Visitors:

Please help Us to continue to provide the Truth,..which..all Catholics need to know,.. in these days of deliberate confusion,.. lies,..brainwashing,.. and.. propaganda!

Some of Our web pages are the only places on the Internet where you will find some very important facts,.. because some of these facts are from.. Our own many personal experiences,.. as well as the result of Our meetings with many Catholic Traditional Clergy including various Patriarchs, Cardinals, Primates, Metropolitans, Archbishops, Bishops, and Religious and Secular Priests, over many, many, many decades, .. plus.. Our own eye-witness testimony,.. concerning..some of the many, many, many changes, which began many, many, many decades,..before the many, many, many younger generations of Catholics were even born,.. and.. of which changes all of these so many, many younger generations of Catholics,.. have no personal knowledge and/or personal experiences.

Most of these many changes.. are not only..illegal,.. but they are also.. invalid,.. and.. most of them include the censure of  automatic excommunication of the perpetrators,.. because, in reality, such changes by the cabal of.. automatically excommunicated Innovators,.. as well as.. the secret gangs.. of anti-Catholic Infiltrators,.. are changes which are  anti-Catholic!

Discover what the ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH teaches.. about the UNCHANGEABLE:..Roman Catholic Faith,.. Mass,..Sacraments,.. etc., etc.

We have recently added what has quickly become Our very popular Editorial Pages on various subjects.

Knowledge
 
It is of the greatest importance that in order to gain assured knowledge of things, to rely on exact acquaintance with facts, rather than on the uncertain testimony of public rumor; and then what we have proved for certain we may proclaim without hesitation. (Saint Bernard of Clairvaux  [b. Castle Fontaines, near Dijon, France in 1090 A.D. - d. at Clairvaux, France on Friday, August 21, 1153 A.D.], Abbot of Clairvaux, Doctor of the Church, Letters).
