“If thou wilt receive profit, read with Humility, simplicity and Faith; and seek not at any time the fame of being learned.”

(Thomas a'Kempis, Imitation of Christ, Book I, Chapter 5:2;4.)


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).

Introduction
Dear Readers,

Over the years, We have publicly joined other pre-Vatican 2 Roman Catholic Bishops and Archbishops by renewing the taking of the Oath known as the   Profession of Faith  and the  Oath Against Modernism   which all of us were originally required to take at Sub-Deaconate by the Canon Law of the Roman Catholic Church.

Among other things, We did promise and swear that We would not only believe, preach, and teach, as well as write, only what is consistent with the authentic Apostolic Divine Tradition of the Catholic Church, because only it has the Supernatural guarantee of Truth.

Therefore, the following direct quotes, the sources of which We have identified, along with whatever notes, analysis, and commentaries concerning them, are consistent with the authentic Apostolic Divine Tradition of the Catholic Church which has the Supernatural guarantee of Truth.

Please consider how it is that today, although certain members of the Laity, in their good faith and efforts and hard work and wonderful dedication, have websites on the internet devoted to the Catholic Faith, for obvious reasons have not taken these two required Oaths.  Therefore, they are unable to claim that everything on their web pages have the Supernatural guarantee of Truth.  One can hope that what they have is totally, 100%, consistent with the authentic Apostolic Divine Tradition of the Catholic Church, but please understand that they are not required to do so because they have not taken these two Oaths.

Also, the NEW clergy  (i.e. Priests and Prelates who are NOT Traditional pre-Vatican 2 Roman Catholic Clergy) likewise have NOT taken these two required Oaths and hence one should never expect to find, among those who have web sites, data which is always totally consistent with the authentic Apostolic Divine Tradition of the Catholic Church which has the Supernatural guarantee of Truth!

On the contrary, although We have not had the opportunity to visit all of such websites, everyone of them which We have visited have been a big disappointment because, in one way or another, We have discovered, whether it be very clear or ambiguous, certain things on at least one or more of their web pages which ARE NOT totally, 100%, consistent with the authentic Apostolic Divine Tradition of the Catholic Church!  Hence, those who read such things are not aware that they are reading what, in at least some cases, is nothing more than one or more errors of the Heresy of Modernism and/or of the Heresy of the NEW Theology Theologians.

In other words, all those who have not taken the two required Solemn Oaths can not really claim that their web pages contain only that which is consistent with the authentic Apostolic Divine Tradition of the Catholic Church which has the Supernatural guarantee of Truth!

But because We have in fact publicly taken these two required Solemn Oaths, first at Sub-Deaconate, etc., as per Canon Law, and later, on a number of various public Ecclesiastical occassions, when We joined other pre-Vatican 2 Roman Catholic Bishops and Archbishops by renewing the taking of the Oath known as the   Profession of Faith  and the  Oath Against Modernism, We at least are able to publicly state the fact that We write only what is consistent with the authentic Apostolic Divine Tradition of the Catholic Church which has the Supernatural guarantee of Truth!

May God the Holy Ghost guide you as you read what follows.

We make these very important Catholic Quotes available to each of you on this web page so that you may be aware of some of these very important Truths which so many, many Catholics simply have never had the opportunity to learn and/or to use use or do not know where else to go to find such vitally important data.

May this web page provide each of you with a cornucopia of Truths for which perhaps some of you have been searching for some time.

May this web page also provide you with that confidence and certain knowledge of some of the beautiful Truths of the One, Holy, Catholic, Apostolic Church, which you may need to explain, to teach, and/or to defend, most especially today when it seems that too many Catholics know fewer and fewer of these glorious, unchangeable Truths!

May God the Holy Ghost always guide you to make a wise a prudent use of these Holy Truths of the Catholic Faith!

God Bless You!

Prologue


Since, therefore, the Sanctification of man [i.e. people] is in the power of God Who Sanctifies, it is not for man [i.e. people] to decide what things should be used for his [i.e. thier] Sanctification, but this is determined by Divine Institution(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, Summa Theologica, Part III, Question 60, Article 5, I Answer That; emphasis added).

A Few Examples of Indifferentism

1.  “Now We consider another abundant source of the evils with which the Church is afflicted at present: INDIFFERENTISM. This perverse opinion is spread on all sides by the fraud of the wicked who claim that it is possible to obtain the eternal salvation of the Soul by the profession of any kind of religion, as long as morality is maintained” (Pope Gregory XVI, Bartolomeo Alberto-Mauro-Cappellari [Wednesday, February 2, 1831 - Monday, June 1, 1846], using his Infallible Ordinary Magisterium, Promulgated his Infallible Encyclical, “Mirari Vos Arbitramur”, On Liberalism and Religious Indifferentism, Wednesday, August 15, 1832, ¶ 13; emphasis added).

2. This poisoned source of  INDIFFERENTISM  gives rise to that absurd and erroneous proposition which claims that liberty of conscience  must be maintained for everyone.  It spreads ruin....  Thence comes transformation of minds, corruption of youths, contempt of Sacred Things and Holy Laws -- in other words, this is a most contagious error” (Pope Gregory XVI, Encyclical, “Mirari Vos Arbitramur”, On Liberalism and Religious Indifferentism, Wednesday, August 15, 1832, ¶ 14; emphasis added).

3. A false idea has for a long time grown stronger and spread widely... by an impious and absurd system of INDIFFERENCE  towards Religious matters..... These theologians..... state categorically that there are many things..... in the form of its external worship which are not suited to the character of our time......  they force reforms, conceive of changes, and pretend to renew the Church”  (Pope Gregory XVI, Encyclical, “Quo Graviora”, On the Pragmatic Constitution, October 4, 1833, ¶ 4; emphasis added).

4. “The  HIDEOUS  ERROR   OF   INDIFFERENTISM.....  causes us to forget out duties to God in whom we live and act and have our being..... This belief embraces people who have strayed from the Truth, who are enemies of the True Faith and forget their own salvation, and who teach contradictory beliefs without firm doctrine. They make no distinction between the different creeds, agree with everybody, and maintain that the haven of eternal salvation is open to sectarians of any religion. The diversity of their teachings does not concern them”  (Pope Pius IX, Giovanni Maria Mastai-Ferretti [Tuesday, June 16, 1846 - Thursday, February 7, 1878], using his Infallible Ordinary Magisterium, Promulgated his Infallible Encyclical, “Singulari Quidem”, On the Church in Austria, Monday, March 17, 1856,  ¶ 3; emphasis added).

5. “The Freemasons.... teach the great error of this age- that a regard for religion should be held as an INDIFFERENT matter, and THAT ALL RELIGIONS ARE ALIKEThis manner of reasoning is calculated to bring about the ruin of all forms of religion, and especially of the Catholic Religion, which, as it is the only one that is True, cannot, without great injustice, be regarded as merely equal to other religions”  (Pope Leo XIII, Gioacchino Vincenzo Pecci [Wednesday, February 20, 1878 - Monday, July 20, 1903], using his Infallible Ordinary Magisterium, Promulgated his Infallible Encyclical, “Humanum Genus”, On Freemasonry, Sunday, April 20, 1884, ¶ 16; emphasis added).

6. But how can hearts be united in Perfect Charity where minds do not agree in Faith?” (Pope Leo XIII, Infallible Encyclical, “Præclara Gratulationis Publicæ”, The Reunion of Christendom, Wednesday, June 20, 1894, ¶ 20; emphasis added.)

7. The enemy has, indeed, long been prowling about the fold and attacking it with such subtle cunning.....  We are forced to agree with  those who hold that the chief cause of the present  INDIFFERENCE   and, as it  were, infirmity of soul, and the serious evils that result from it, is to be found above all in ignorance of things Divine.   This is fully in accord  with what God Himself declared through the Prophet Osee:  And there is no  knowledge of God in the land. Cursing and lying and killing and theft and  adultery have overflowed: and blood hath touched blood. Thereafter shall  the land mourn, and everyone that dwelleth in it shall languish  [Osee 4:1-3]”  (Pope Saint Pius X, Giuseppe Sarto [Tuesday, August 4, 1903 - Thursday, August 20, 1914], using his Infallible Ordinary Magisterium, Promulgated his Infallible Encyclical, “Acerbo Nimis”, On Teaching Christian Doctrine, Saturday, April 15, 1905, ¶ 1; emphasis added).

N.B.:  This Summarizes the Current Problem

HOW CAN  so great  A  VARIETY  OF  OPINIONS  make the way clear to effect the  UNITY of the Church  We know not;  that    UNITY  can  ONLY  arise  FROM   ONE  TEACHING  authorityONE law of  BELIEF, and  ONE  FAITH  of Christians.   But We do know that from this it is an easy step to the neglect of Religion or  INDIFFERENTISM  and to MODERNISM,  as they call it.   Those, who are unhappily  INFECTED  WITH  THESE  ERRORS,  HOLD  THAT  Dogmatic  TRUTH  IS NOT  ABSOLUTE  but relative, that is, it agrees with the varying necessities of time and place and with the varying tendencies of the mindsince it is not contained in immutable revelation, but  is capable of being accommodated to human life”  (Pope Pius XI, Achille Ratti [Monday, February 6, 1922 - Friday, February 10, 1939], using his Infallible Ordinary Magisterium, Promulgated his Infallible Encyclical, “Mortalium Animos”, On Religious Unity, Friday, January 6, 1928, ¶ 9; emphasis added).

Affected Ignorance

Affected ignorance does not excuse from guilt, but rather aggravates it since it shows that a man is so strongly attached to sin that he wishes to incur ignorance lest he avoid sinning.  The Jews therefore sinned, as crucifiers not only of the Man-Christ, but also as of God.”  (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, Summa Theologica, Part III, Question 47, Article 5, Reply to Objection 3; emphasis added).

In other words, a person who does not want to know the unchangeable Catholic Traditional Truths about the unchangeable Catholic Traditional Faith - but who instead wants to believe only what automatically excommunicated heretics claim is the "truth" has become a VICTIM of Satanic lies like these:

For example:
1.  “God is NOT in the punishment business.”

2.  “Hell does not exist because everyone is saved.”

3.  “Heaven is only a state, not a place.

4.  “Dogmas can always be changed.”

5.  “Truth evolves.”

6.  “Do not bother to pray for the Dead, or to have Masses Offered for the Dead, because they are already saved, which is why we now use WHITE vestments to denote their automatic sainthood upon death, not those depressing BLACK vestments that were used up to Vatican 2 which have been thrown out along with the Altars, Statues, Missals, Rituals, The Catechism of the Council of Trent, books on Purgatory and Hell, the teaching of Scholastic Philosophy and Thomistic Theology in Seminaries, First Friday and First Saturday Devotions, God’s Peace Plan, etc., etc.”

7.  etc.

A person who hates the Truth, or who is too lazy or irresponsible, or who does not want to know, or to otherwise learn, the Truth, or who does not have the time to learn the Truth, or who is happy with the way things are, or who loves all the changes of the changes of the never-ending changes, or who already knows all that is needed to know  - anyone who is in one or more of these, or similiar, categories actually commits a sin called affected ignorance and becomes liable to eternal damnation, not to mention being condemned by God to believe lies and errors:
Because they receive not the love of the Truth, that they might be saved, therefore God shall send them the operation of error, to believe lying: that all may be judged who have not believed the Truth, but have consented to iniquity  (2 Thessalonians 2:10-11; emphasis added.)

"But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there shall be among you lying teachers, who shall bring in sects of perdition, and deny the Lord who bought them: bringing upon themselves swift destruction.  And many shall follow their riotousnesses, through whom the way of Truth shall be evil spoken of.  And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you. Whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their perdition slumbereth not.  (2 Peter 2:1-3; emphasis added.)

Lovers, and Serious Seekers, of the Truth

HOWEVER, a person who loves, and sincerely seeks, the Truth and who prayerfully and seriously really humbly wants to know the unchangeable Catholic Traditional Truths about the unchangeable Catholic Traditional Faith, is Blessed by God by being permitted to discover and to learn the immutable Truth and is thereby set free from being victimized by propaganda, deception, lies, confusion, errors, hypocrisy, heresy, and apostasy:

And you shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free (John 8:32; emphasis added.)
We WELCOME all lovers, and serious seekers, of the Truth, and all of you who HUMBLY have the courage to learn the unchangeable Catholic Traditional Truths about the unchangeable Catholic Traditional Faith, because you are sick and tired of:
The continual propaganda of lies, deception, sacrileges, etc., found in the "church" of the changes of the changes of the changes of the never-ending changes, of falsehoods, fallacies, hypocrisy, empty promises, blatant and deliberate contradictions, heresies, pedophiles, Satanists, automatically excommunicated NEW Theology Theologians and Modernist heretics, in addition to the homosexual cabal, and the anti-Catholic Infiltrators including Communists, Illuminati, Freemasons, members of the top-secret 5th Column Zionists, etc., who run the Vatican and everyone and everything associated with the Vatican on all levels, not to mention all of the many Apostate Religious who have abandoned their Holy Rules/Constitutions which were originally written by Holy Canonized Catholic Saints and were approved by various Popes down through the ages, as well as the many Apostate Clergy - who have either broken their Solemn Oaths (The Profession of Faith and The Oath Against Modernism), or who have never bothered to take either of these two Solemn Oaths - who are to be found on all levels, both in the Vatican and even at the local levels of the apostate "church".
Teachings of the Roman Catholic Church

All Roman Catholics have been warned.

For example:
1.  “Let them innovate in nothing, but keep the [Apostolic] Traditions” (Nihil innovetur nisi quod traditum est.)” (Pope Saint Stephen I [Friday, May 12, 254 - Sunday, August 2, 257], Letter to Saint Cyprian, 74; emphasis added.)
2.  “None should be allowed to call into question the belief which our Fathers received from the Apostles, as if there were any doubt what this is”  (Saint Leo I   [Saturday, September 29, 440 - Thursday, November 10, 461], Letter to Emperor Marcian at Constantinople, Monday, June 26, 451; emphasis added.)
3.  “But such as dare either to put together another faith, or to bring forward or to teach or to deliver a different Creed... let them be anathema [i.e. automatically excommunicated]” (First Œcumenical Council of Chalcedon, Session 5, Sunday, October 22, 451 A.D.; emphasis added.)
4.  “We have only one doctrine; this is the faith of the Doctors of the Church; this is the faith of the Holy Apostles; this is the faith which has saved the world” (Fourth Œcumenical Council, the First Council of Chalcedon [Sunday, October 8, 451 A.D. - Wednesday, November 1, 451 A.D.]; emphasis added.)
More recently, in the previous Century, one finds this authoritative teaching:
“There are to be found today, and in no small numbers, men, of whom the Apostle says that:
There shall be a time, when they will not endure sound doctrine; but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears: And will indeed turn away their hearing from the Truth, but will be turned unto fables (2 Timothy 4:3-4; emphasis added.)
Infatuated and carried away by a lofty idea of the human intellect, by which God’s good gift has certainly made incredible progress in the study of nature, confident in their own judgment, and contemptuous of the authority of the Church, they have reached such a degree of rashness as not to hesitate to measure by the standard of their own mind even the hidden things of God and all that God has revealed to men. Hence arose the monstrous errors of ‘Modernism,’ which Our Predecessor rightly declared to be ‘the synthesis of all heresies,’ and solemnly condemned. [Editor's Note:  The actual text for this condemnation will be found below at the link for the Papal Encyclical: Pascendi Dominici Gregis of Pope Saint Pius X.]

We hereby renew that condemnation in all its fulness, Venerable Brethren, and as the plague is not yet entirely stamped out, but lurks here and there in hidden places, We exhort all to be carefully here and there in hidden places, We exhort all to be carefully on their guard against any contagion of the evil, to which we may apply the words Job used in other circumstances:

It is a fire that devoureth even to destruction, and rooteth up all things that spring (Job 31:12).
Nor do We merely desire that Catholics should shrink from the errors of Modernism, but also from the tendencies or what is called the spirit of Modernism.

Those who are infected by that spirit develop a keen dislike for all that savours of antiquity and become eager searchers after novelties in everything: in the way in which they carry out religious functions, in the ruling of Catholic institutions, and even in private exercises of piety.

Therefore it is Our will that the law of our Forefathers should still be held sacred: ‘Let there be no innovation - nothing but what has been handed down’ (Pope Saint Stephen I [Friday, May 12, 254 - Sunday, August 2, 257], “Epistle to Africa”, quoted by Father Saint Vincent of Lerins [b. Toul, France, c. 400 A.D. - d. Island of Lerins, c. 450 A.D.], “A Commonitory [an aid to memory] for the Antiquity and Universality of the Catholic Faith Against the Profane Novelties of All Heresies,” Chapter VI, ¶ 16.)”  (Pope Benedict XV, Giacomo Della Chiesa [Thursday, September 3, 1914 - Saturday, January 21, 1922], Encyclical Ad Beatissimi Apostolorum, Sunday, November 1, 1914, ¶ 25; emphasis added.)

Heresy

“Therefore, heresy is so-called from the Greek word meaning choice, by which each chooses according to his own will what he pleases to teach or believeBut we are not permitted to believe whatever we choose, nor to choose whatever someone else has believedWe have the Apostles of God as authorities, who did not themselves of their own will choose what they would believe, but faithfully transmitted to the nations the teaching received from Christ.  So, even if an Angel from Heaven should preach otherwise, he shall be called anathema”  (Saint Isidore of Seville [b. Cartagena, Spain 560 A.D. - d. Seville, Spain, 636 A.D.], Bishop of Seville, Doctor of the Catholic Church, Etymologies, 8, 3; emphasis added).

But though We, or an Angel from Heaven, preach a Gospel to you besides that which We have preached to you, let him be anathema.  As We said before, so now I say again:  If any one preach to you a Gospel, besides that which you have received, let him be anathema(Galatians 1:8-9; emphasis added.)

What is Truth?

Please prayerfully consider the following:

1.  “O Lord, the God of Truth” (Psalm 30:6; emphasis added).

2.  “O Lord, Thy Mercy is in Heaven, and thy Truth reacheth even to the clouds” (Psalm 35:6; emphasis added).

3.  “God hath sent His Mercy and His Truth” (Psalm 56:4; emphasis added).

4.  “God  loveth Mercy and Truth” (Psalm 83:12; emphasis added).

5.  “O Lord, God of hosts, who is like to Thee? Thou art mighty, O Lord, and Thy Truth is round about Thee.” (Psalm 88:9; emphasis added).

6.  “[God] Who keepeth Truth forever” (Psalm 145:7; emphasis added)

7.  “A deceitful tongue loveth not Truth: and a slippery mouth worketh ruin” (Proverbs 26:28; emphasis added)

8.  “What Truth can come from that which is false?” (Ecclesiasticus 34:4; emphasis added)

9.  “And the Word [Jesus Christ] 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 1:14; emphasis added.)

10.  “Jesus saith to him:  I am the Way, and the Truth, and the Life.  No man cometh to the Father, but by Me” (John 14:6; emphasis added.)

11.  “I have not written to you as to them that know not the Truth, but as to them that know it: and that no lie is of the Truth. Who is a liar, but he who denieth that Jesus is the ChristThis is anti-Christ, who denieth the Father, and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father.   He that confesseth the Son, hath the Father also” (1 John 2:21-23; emphasis added).

12.  “It is the [Holy] Spirit which testifieth, that Christ is the Truth” (1 John 5:6; emphasis added).

Therefore:
God is Truth (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, Summa Theologica Part I, Question 16, Article 5; Summa Theologica Part II-II, Question 93, Article 2, Reply to Objection 2. Summa Contra Gentiles, Book I, Chapter 60; emphasis added).
Truth does NOT change because God does NOT change:
1.  “I am the Lord and I change not” (Malachias 3:6; emphasis added).

2.  “Do not err, therefore, my Dearest Brethren.  Every best gift, and every perfect gift, is from above, coming down from the Father of Lights, with Whom there is no change, nor shadow of alteration.  For of His own will hath He begotten us by the Word of Truth” (James 1:16-18; emphasis added).

3.  “But God’s Word is one and the same and, as it is written: The Word of God endureth forever [Isaias 40:8] unchanged, not before or after another, but existing the same always.  For it was fitting, whereas God is One, that His Image should be One also, and His Word One and One His Wisdom” (Patriarch Saint Athanasius [b. Alexandria, Egypt 296 A.D. - d. Alexandria, Egypt on Wednesday, May 2, 373A.D.], Patriarch of Alexandria, Egypt, Father of Orthodoxy in the Catholic Church, Four Discourses Against the Arians, Discourse II, Chapter XVII, Introduction to Proverbs viii. 22, Continued, ¶ 36;emphasis added).

In other words, because God, Who is Truth, does NOT evolve, therefore Truth does NOT evolve, as the heresies of the Modernists and of NEW Theology Theologians want you to wrongly think and disastrously believe.

Every Truth IS Absolute:

What is true today, is true tomorrow and for all eternity because, once again, Truth does NOT change because God does NOT change.

Also, because by its very nature, and by its very definition:

Truth cannot be Truth’s contrary” (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P.,  Summa Contra Gentiles, Book IV, Chapter 8).
In other words: Truth NEVER Contradicts Itself Because Truth IS:  Unchangeable - Absolute!



The Satanic Synod Vatican 2 church
of anti-Catholic Infiltrators, Heretics, and Apostates
Which Overflows with Lies, Heresies, Apostasy & Spiritual Death:

1.  The NEW mass is a different liturgy.

2.  The [Ancient] Roman Rite [i.e. the Catholic Traditional Mass]... has been DESTROYED!”

Father Joseph Gelineau, S.J. should know because he, himself, helped to make up the NEW mass and, in doing this, he helped to DESTROY the Catholic Traditional Mass, a.k.a. the Ancient Roman Rite, which is found in the Missale Romanum issued by Pope Saint Pius V on Tuesday, July 14, 1570, in conformity with the orders of the Dogmatic Doctrinal Council of Trent, and which Missal contains  Pope Saint Pius V's Papal Bulla, Quo Primum Tempore, which includes ecclesiastical censures (including excommunication) for those who would change this Missal.

Of further interest, Sister Lucy of Fatima allegedly said that the NEW mass is:

a diabolical disorientation”.

“And I heard another voice from Heaven, saying:

Go out from her, My people; that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues.  For her sins have reached unto Heaven, and the Lord hath remembered her iniquities” (Apocalypse 18:4-5; emphasis added).
Chaos and Confusion Caused by the Diabolical Disorientation

Lift up thy hands against their pride unto the end;
see what things the enemy hath done wickedly in the sanctuary.
(Psalm 73:3)

The Satanic anti-Christ Broken Crucifix Crozier:

THE “ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION”:


666

“And 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; emphasis added).

“And 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; emphasis added).

N.B.The Jews never had a real Continual Sacrifice.

Therefore:
Heed these Prophetic Warnings from God!!!
Come, Learn the Truth!!!
Discover What You Have Been Missing!!!
Save Your Soul and the Souls of Your Family and Loved Ones!!!



The Profession of Faith

In accordance with Canon Law - Church Law - I have taken The Profession of Faith many times.  This is a Solemn Oath which means that anyone who takes it and later violates it, commits the Mortal Sin of Perjury each time it is violated.  Here are a few important parts of the actual text for today:

I, (state your name), believe and vow with a firm faith each and every single article of Faith, which is found in the Collection of the Articles of Faith, which the Holy Catholic Church uses, which are....

“... most steadfastly admit and embrace Apostolic and Ecclesiastical Traditions...

“...I will NEVER accept and interpret it (i.e. Sacred Scripture) otherwise than in accordance with the UNANIMOUS CONSENT of the Fathers.....

“I, (state your name), by this present’ promise, vow and swear that, with the help of God, I shall most constantly hold and profess this true Catholic Faith, without which no one can be saved and which I now freely profess and truly hold.  With the help of God, I shall profess it whole and inviolate to my dying breath; and, with all the power and ability in me, I will see to it that those under me and any others who come under my care by virtue of my Office, to Hold, to Teach, and to Preach all of the above mentioned TruthsTo this end, so help me God and these Holy Gospels of God.”

(The Profession of Faith is required to be taken by all Roman Catholic Sub-Deacons, Deacons, and Priests at their respective Ordinations, by all Bishops at their Episcopal Consecration, by all Archbishops and Cardinals at their respective Elevations, and by every Pope-Elect prior to his Coronation and Installation.  This Profession of Faith was mandated by the Roman Catholic Council of Trent, Session 25, Wednesday, December 4, 1563, Decree Concerning Reform, Chapter II.  Roman Catholic Pope Pius IV, Giovanni Angelo De Medici [Friday, December 25, 1559 - Thursday, December 9, 1565] issued the actual text for this Solemn Oath in his Papal Bulla, Injunctum Nobis, on Friday, November 13, 1564; emphasis added.)

The Oath Against Modernism

In accordance with the requirements of the A.A.S., S.C.S. OFF., Decree of March 22, 1918, I have also taken The Oath Against Modernism many times.  This is a Solemn Oath which means that anyone who takes it and later violates it, commits the Mortal Sin of Perjury each time it is violated.  Here are a few important parts of the actual text for today:

I (state your name), firmly accept and embrace each and every Doctrine defined by the Church’s unerring Teaching Authority and all that She has maintained and declared, especially those points of Doctrine which are directly opposed to the errors of our time....

“...Fourthly, I sincerely hold that the Doctrine of Faith was handed down to us from the Apostles through the officially approved Fathers [of the Catholic Church], in exactly the same sense and with always the same meaning.  And, therefore, I completely reject the heretical notion that Dogmas evolve and change from one meaning to another different from the one meaning which the Church held from the beginning.

I likewise condemn every erroneous notion according to which, instead of the Divine Deposit of Faith, entrusted by Christ to His Spouse, the Church, and to be faithfully guarded by Her, one may substitute a philosophical system, or a creation of the human mind, gradually refined by human effort and capable of continual and indefinite development.

“Fifthly, I hold with certainty and sincerely profess that Faith is not a blind Religious sentiment evolving from the hidden recesses of subliminal consciousness, and morally formed by the influence of heart and the motion of the will, but that it is a real assent of the intellect to objective Truth learned by hearing, an assent wherein we believe to be true whatever has been spoken, testified, and revealed by the personal God, our Creator and Lord, on the authority of God, Who is the perfection of Truth.

“Furthermore, in all due reverence, I submit to, and fully uphold, all of the condemnations, declarations and the prescripts contained in the Encyclical Letter PASCENDI, and in the Decree LAMENTABILI, especially those concerning what is called the history of dogmas.  I also reject the error of those who say that the Faith held by the Church may conflict with history, and that Catholic Dogmas, in the sense in which they are now understood, cannot be reconciled with the actual origins of the Christian Religion....

“Finally, I profess that I am completely opposed to the error of the Modernists who hold that there is nothing inherently Divine in Sacred Tradition; or who - which is far worse - admit it in a pantheistic sense.  For them, there would remain only a bare simple fact, like the ordinary facts of history, to the effect that the system begun by Christ and His Apostles still find men to support it by their energy, skill and ability; therefore, I most firmly retain and will retain to my last breath the Faith of the Fathers of the Church, which has the Supernatural guarantee of Truth...

“...that we may never believe nor understand anything other than the absolute and unchangeable Truth preached from the beginning by the Apostles.

All this I promise to keep faithfully, entirely and sincerely and to guard them inviolately and never to depart from them in any way in Teaching, in Word, or in Writing.Thus I promise, thus I swear, so help me God and His Holy Gospels.”

(Oath Against Modernism, Pope Saint Pius X, Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto [Tuesday, August 4, 1903 - Thursday, August 20, 1914], Motu Proprio - On His Own Initiative - Sacrorum Antistitum, Thursday, September 1, 1910; emphasis added.)

All those who are required to take The Profession of Faith, per Canon Law 1406, are also required to take the Oath Against Modernism at the same time.  (A.A.S. [Acta Apostolicae Sedis - Acts of the Apostolic See] - Year 10, Volume 10, page 136; S.C.S. OFF. [Supreme Congregation of the Holy Office], Decree of March 22, 1918.)

Coronation Oath of the Pope-Elect

“I VOW:

TO CHANGE NOTHING of the received Tradition, and nothing thereof, I have found before me guarded by my God pleasing Predecessors, to encroach to alter (to change), OR TO PERMIT ANY INNOVATION therein;

“To the contrary: with glowing affection as Her truly faithful student and successor, to reverently safeguard the passed on good, with my whole strength and utmost effort;

“To cleanse all that is in contradiction with Canonical order that may surface;

“To guard the Holy Canons and Decrees of our Popes likewise as Divine Ordinances of Heaven, because I am conscious of Thee, Whose place I take through the Grace of God, Whose Vicarship I possess with Thy support, being subject to severest accounting before Thy Divine Tribunal over all that I confess.

If I should undertake to act in anything of contrary sense, or should permit that it will be executed, Thou willst not be merciful to me on the dreadful day of Divine Justice.

“Accordingly, without exclusion, We subject to severest Excommunication anyone - be it Ourself or be it another - who would dare to undertake anything NEW in contradiction to this constituted Evangelic Tradition and the purity of the Orthodox Faith and the Christian Religion, or would seek to change anything by his opposing efforts, or would concur with those who undertake such blasphemous venture.”

From Sacred Scripture
 



Old Testament

“And Nadab and Abiu, the Sons of Aaron, taking their censers, put fire therein, and incense on it, offering before the Lord strange fire: which was not commanded them.   And fire coming out from the Lord destroyed them:  and they died before the Lord.” (Leviticus 10:1-2; emphasis added.)

“Nadab and Abiu died before their Father.”(1 Paralipomenon 24:2)

A deceitful tongue loveth not Truth: and a slippery mouth worketh ruin” (Proverbs 26:28).

9 They that trust in Him, shall understand the Truth: and they that are faithful in love shall rest in Him: for Grace and Peace is to His Elect.

10 But the wicked shall be punished according to their own devices: who have neglected the just, and have revolted from the Lord.

11 For he that rejecteth Wisdom, and Discipline, is unhappy: and their hope is vain, and their labours without fruit, and their works unprofitable” (Wisdom 3:9-11).

What can be made clean by the unclean? and what Truth can come from that which is false?” (Ecclesiasticus 34:4).

Woe to you that call evil good, and good evil: that put darkness for light, and light for darkness” (Isaias 5:20).

No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper” (Isaias 54:17).

“And strength was given him against the Continual Sacrifice, because of sins: and Truth shall be cast down on the ground, and he shall do and shall prosper” (Daniel 8:12).

“And he shall confirm the Covenant with many, in one week: and 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).

“And arms shall stand on his part, and 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).

“I am the Lord and I change not” (Malachias 3:6).


New Testament


Saint Matthew, Apostle and Evangelist

“By their fruits you shall know them. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit, and the evil tree bringeth forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can an evil tree bring forth good fruit” (Matthew 7:15-17).

“And after six days Jesus taketh unto Him Peter and James, and John his Brother, and bringeth them up into a high mountain apart:  and He was transfigured before them.  And His face did shine as the sun:  and His garments became white as snow” (Matthew 17:1-2).



Saint John, Apostle and Evangelist

“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” (John 1:1).

“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 1:14).

“The next day, John saw Jesus coming to him, and he saith:   Behold the Lamb of God, behold Him who taketh away the sin of the world” (John 1:29).


Saint John the Apostle

“And you shall know the Truth, and the Truth shall make you free” (John 8:32).

“43   Why do you not know My speech?  Because you cannot hear My word.

44   You are of your father the Devil, and the desires of your father you will do.  He was a murderer from the beginning, and he stood not in the Truth; because Truth is not in him.  When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own:  for he is a liar, and the father thereof.

45   But if I say the Truth, you believe Me not.

46   Which of you shall convince Me of sin?  If I say the Truth to you, why do you not believe Me?

47   He that is of God, heareth the words of God.  Therefore you hear them not, because you are not of God” (John 8:43-47).

“I am the Way, and the Truth and the Life.  No man cometh to the Father but by Me” (John 14:6).

“And I will ask the Father, and He shall give you another Paraclete, that He may abide with you for ever.  The Spirit of Truth, Whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth Him not, nor knoweth Him:  but you shall know Him; because He shall abide with you, and shall be in you” (John 14:16-17).

“But when the Paraclete cometh, Whom I will send you from the Father, the Spirit of Truth, Who proceedeth from the Father, He shall give testimony of Me” (John 15:26).



Saint Paul, Apostle

“But though We, or an Angel from Heaven, Preach a Gospel to you besides that which We have preached to you, let him be anathema” (Galatians 1:8; emphasis added).

“11   But when Cephas [Peter] was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed.

12  For before that some came from James, he did eat with the Gentiles:  but when they were come, he withdrew and separated himself, fearing them who were of the circumcision.

13   And to his dissimulation the rest of the Jews consented, so that Barnabas also was led by them into that dissimulation.

14 But when I saw that they walked not uprightly unto the Truth of the Gospel, I said to Cephas before them all:  If thou, being a Jew, livest after the manner of the Gentiles, and not as the Jews do, how dost thou compel the Gentiles to live as do the Jews?” (Galatians 2:11-14; emphasis added).


Saint Paul the Apostle

“Am I then become your enemy, because I tell you the Truth?” (Galatians 4:16).

“...because they receive not the love of the Truth, that they might be saved. Therefore God shall send them the operation of error, to believe lying” (2 Thessalonians 2:10).

“Therefore, Brethren, stand fast; and hold the Traditions which you have learned, whether by Word [oral teaching], or by Our Epistle [written teaching]” (2 Thessalonians 2:14; emphasis added).

“Hold the Traditions which you have learned” (2 Thessalonians 2:14.)

“Now the Spirit manifestly saith that in the last times some shall depart from the Faith, giving heed to spirits of error and doctrines of devilsnspeaking lies in hypocrisy and having their conscience seared” (1 Timothy 4:1).

“O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding the profane novelties of words, and oppositions of knowledge falsely so called. Which some promising, have erred concerning the Faith” (1 Timothy 6:20-21).

“For there shall be a time, when they will not endure sound doctrine; but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears: And will indeed turn away their hearing from the Truth, but will be turned unto fables” (2 Timothy 4:3-4).

“Be not led away with various and strange doctrines.  Jesus Christ yesterday, and today, and the same forever” (Hebrews 13:8-9).



Saint James the Just, Apostle

“Blessed is the man that endureth temptation; for when he hath been proved, he shall receive a crown of life, which God hath promised to them that love Him” (James 1:12).

“With the Father of light there is no change nor shadow of alteration” (James 1:17).

“17   So Faith also, if it have not Works, is dead in itself.

18   But some man will say:  Thou hast Faith, and I have Works:  shew me thy Faith without Works; and I will shew thee, by Works, my Faith.

19   Thou believest that there is one God.  Thou dost well:  the Devils also believe and tremble.

20   But wilt thou know, O vain man, that Faith without Works is dead?

21   Was not Abraham our Father justified by Works, offering up Isaac his Son upon the altar?

22   Seest thou, that Faith did co-operate with his Works; and, by Works, Faith was made perfect?” (James 2:17-22; emphasis added).

“But if you have bitter zeal, and there be contentions in your hearts; glory not, and be not liars against the Truth.   For this is not Wisdom, descending from above:  but earthly, sensual, devilish” (James 3:14-15).

“1    Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl in your miseries, which shall come upon you.

2    Your riches are corrupted:  and your garments are motheaten.

3    Your gold and silver is cankered:  and the rust of them shall be for a testimony against you, and shall eat your flesh like fire.  You have stored up to yourselves wrath against the last days” (James 5:1-3).



Saint Peter, Apostle

“For the time is, that judgment should begin at the House of God [the Church]” (1 Peter 4:17).

“But there were also false prophets among the people, even as there shall be among you lying teachers, who shall bring in sects of perdition, and deny the Lord who bought them: bringing upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their riotousnesses, through whom the way of Truth shall be evil spoken of.  And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you. Whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their perdition slumbereth not” (2 Peter 2:1-3; emphasis added).



Saint John, Apostle and Evangelist - Epistle
Blessed Virgin Mary Receiving Holy Communion from Saint John

“No lie is of the Truth” (1 John 2:21).



Saint John the Apostle Writing the Apocalypse
Saint John, Apostle
Evangelist and Author of the Apocalypse
[b.  ?  A.D. - d. at Ephesus, c. 101 A.D.]

“7    Behold, He cometh with the clouds, and every eye shall see Him, and they also that pierced Him.  And all the tribes of the earth shall bewail themselves because of Him.  Even so.  Amen.

8    I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, saith the Lord God, Who is, and Who was, and Who is to come, the Almighty.

9    I, John, your Brother and your partner in tribulation, and in the kingdom, and patience in Christ Jesus, was on the island, which is called Patmos, for the Word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus.

10   I was in the spirit on the Lord’s Day [Sunday], and heard behind me a great Voice, as of a trumpet,

11   Saying:  What thou seest, write in a book, and send to the Seven Churches which are in Asia, to Ephesus, and to Smyrna, and to Pergamus, and to Thyatira, and to Sardis, and to Philadelphia, and to Laodicea.

12   And I turned to see the Voice that spoke with me.  And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks:

13   And in the midst of the Seven Golden Candlesticks, One like to the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the feet, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.

14   And His head and his hairs were white, as white wool, and as snow, and his eyes were as a flame of fire,

15   And His feet like unto fine brass, as in a burning furnace.  And His voice as the sound of many waters.

16   And He had in his right hand Seven Stars.  And from His mouth came out a sharp two edged sword:  and His Face was as the sun shineth in his power.

17   And when I had seen Him, I fell at His feet as dead.  And He laid His right hand upon me, saying:  Fear not.  I am the First and the Last,

18   And alive, and was dead, and behold I am living for ever and ever, and have the keys of death and of Hell.

19   Write therefore the things which thou hast seen, and which are, and which must be done hereafter.

20   The mystery of the Seven Stars, which thou sawest in My right hand, and the Seven Golden Candlesticks.  The Seven Stars are the Angels [Bishops] of the Seven Churches.  And the Seven Candlesticks are the Seven Churches” (Apocalypse 1:7-20; emphasis added).
 
 

“1  Unto the Angel [Bishop] of the Church of Ephesus write:  These things saith He, Who holdeth the Seven Stars [Seven Bishops] in His right hand, Who walketh in the midst of the Seven Golden Candlesticks:

2 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them that are evil, and thou hast tried them, who say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:

3  And thou hast patience, and hast endured for My Name, and hast not fainted.

4 But I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first charity.

5 Be mindful therefore from whence thou art fallen:  and do penance, and do the first works.  Or else I come to thee, and will move thy candlestick out of its place, except thou do penance.

6 But this thou hast, that thou hatest the deeds of the Nicolaites, which I also hate.

7  He, that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith to the Churches:  To him, that overcometh, I will give to eat of the Tree of Life, which is in the Paradise of my God” (Apocalypse 2:1-7; emphasis added).

“And the third angel sounded the trumpet, and a great Star [Bishop] fell from Heaven [the Church], burning as it were a torch, and it fell on the third part of the rivers, and upon the fountains of waters [the Mass and Sacraments]: And the name of the Star [Bishop] is called Wormwood.  And the third part of the waters [the Mass and Sacraments] became wormwood; and many men died of the waters [fake Masses and Sacraments], because they were made bitter [invalid Masses and invalid Sacraments, a.k.a. Memorial Supper Meals, a.k.a. happy meals]” (Apocalypse 8:10-11; emphasis added).

“And I heard another voice from Heaven, saying:  Go out from her, my people; that you be not partakers of her sins, and that you receive not of her plagues.  For her sins have reached unto Heaven, and the Lord hath remembered her iniquities” (Apocalypse 18:4-5; emphasis added).

“And there came down fire from God out of Heaven, and devoured them; and the Devil, who seduced them, was cast into the Pool of Fire and Brimstone, where both the Beast and the False Prophet shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.   And I saw a Great White Throne, and One sitting upon it, from whose Face the earth and heaven fled away, and there was no place found for them” (Apocalypse 20:9-11; emphasis added).

“For I testify to every one that heareth the words of the Prophecy of this Book:  If any man shall add to these things, God shall add unto him the plagues written in this Book.   And if any man shall take away from the words of the Book of this Prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the Book of Life, and out of the Holy City, and from these things that are written in this Book” (Apocalypse 22:18-19).


From the Fathers of the Catholic Church


Bishop Saint Polycarp
[b. c. 69 A.D. - d. martyred on Saturday, February 23, 166 A.D.]

“Let us abandon the vanities of the crowd and their false teachings; let us return to the Word which was delivered to us from the beginning” (Bishop Saint Polycarp [b. c. 69 A.D. - d. martyred on Saturday, February 23, 166 A.D.] was a Disciple of Saint John the Apostle, who made him the Bishop of Smyrna. Saint Polycarp is an Apostolic Father of the Catholic Church).


Bishop Saint Irenæus
b. Proconsular Asia c. 130 A.D. -
d. Lyons, France either on Monday, June 28, or Monday, August 23, in about 202 A.D.
This preaching [kerygma] and this faith the Church, although scattered over the whole world, diligently observes, as if it occupied but one house, and believes as if it had but one mind. The Church preaches [kerygma] and teaches as if it had but one mouth. And although there are many languages in the world, the meaning of the [Sacred Apostolic] Tradition is one and the same(Bishop Saint Irenæus [b. Proconsular Asia c. 130 A.D. - d. Lyons, France either on Monday, June 28, or Monday, August 23, in about 202 A.D.], Bishop of Lyons, Father of the Catholic Church.  He was a Disciple of Bishop Saint Polycarp [c. 69 A.D. - d. martyred on Saturday, February 23, 166 A.D.]. Saint Polycarp, in turn, was a Disciple of Saint John the Apostle, Evangelist and author of the Apocalypse [b.  ?  A.D. - d. Ephesus, c. 101 A.D.], who made Saint Polycarp the Bishop of Smyrna.  Saint Polycarp is an Apostolic Father of the Catholic Church.  This quotation is from Bishop Saint Irenæus, “Against the Heresies”, {written 180 A.D. - 199 A.D.}, Book I, chapter 10, ¶ 2; emphasis added).


Patriarch Saint Athanasius
b. Alexandria, Egypt 296 A.D. -
d. Alexandria, Egypt on Wednesday, May 2, 373A.D.
“But God’s Word is one and the same and, as it is written: The Word of God endureth forever [Isaias 40:8] unchanged, not before or after another, but existing the same always.  For it was fitting, whereas God is One, that His Image should be One also, and His Word One and One His Wisdom” (Patriarch Saint Athanasius [b. Alexandria, Egypt 296 A.D. - d. Alexandria, Egypt on Wednesday, May 2, 373A.D.], Patriarch of Alexandria, Egypt, Father of Orthodoxy in the Catholic Church, Four Discourses Against the Arians, Discourse II, Chapter XVII, Introduction to Proverbs viii. 22, Continued, ¶ 36; emphasis added).

Let us note that the very Tradition, Teaching, and Faith of the Catholic Church from the beginning, which the Lord gave, was preached by the Apostles, and was preserved by the Fathers. On this was the Church founded; and if anyone departs from this, he neither is, nor any longer ought to be called, a Christian”  (Patriarch Saint Athanasius [b. Alexandria, Egypt 296 A.D. - d. Alexandria, Egypt on Wednesday, May 2, 373A.D.], Patriarch of Alexandria, Egypt, Father of Orthodoxy in the Catholic Church, Letter to Serapion of Thumis, 359 A.D.; emphasis added).

“Revealed Truth, to be what it professes, must have an uninterrupted descent from the Apostles.  Its teachers must be unanimous and persistent in their unanimity and it must bear no human master’s name as its designation”  (Patriarch Saint Athanasius [b. Alexandria, Egypt 296 A.D. - d. Alexandria, Egypt on Wednesday, May 2, 373A.D.], Patriarch of Alexandria, Egypt, Father of Orthodoxy in the Catholic Church; emphasis added.).

“The Heretics may possess the buildings of the Church, but you possess the Faith of the Church... It is a fact that they have the premises - but you have the Apostolic Faith. They can occupy our churches, but they are outside the True Faith.  You remain outside the places of worship, but the Faith dwells within you.  Let us consider: what is more important, the place or the Faith? The True Faith, obviously.  Who has lost and who has won in this struggle - the one who keeps the premises, or the one who keeps the Faith?....  Even if Catholics faithful to Tradition are reduced to a handful, they are the ones who are the True Church of Jesus Christ”  (Patriarch Saint Athanasius [b. Alexandria, Egypt 296 A.D. - d. Alexandria, Egypt on Wednesday, May 2, 373A.D.], Patriarch of Alexandria, Egypt, Father of Orthodoxy in the Catholic Church, “Coll. Selecta SS. Eccl. Patrum.,” Caillu and Guillou, Volume 32, pp 411-412; emphasis added.)



Bishop Saint Pacian
[b. c. 310  A.D. - d. 390 A.D.]
Christianus mihi nomen est, Catholicus cognomen.
Christian is my name, Catholic is my surname.

“7.  Many things the Holy Spirit hath taught us, Whom God sent from Heaven to the Apostles as their Comforter and Guide. Many things reason teaches us, as Paul saith, and honesty, and, as he says, nature itself. (1 Corinthians 11:14).  What! Is the authority of Apostolic men, of Primitive Priests, of the most Blessed Martyr and Doctor Cyprian, of slight weight with us? Do we wish to teach the teacher? Are we wiser than he was, and are we puffed up by the spirit of the flesh against the man, whom his noble shedding of blood, and a crown of most glorious suffering, have set forth as a witness of the Eternal God? What thinkest thou of so many Priests on this same side, who throughout the whole world were compacted together in one bond of peace with this same Cyprian? What of so many aged Bishops, so many Martyrs, so many Confessors? Come say, if they were not sufficient authorities for the use of this name, are we sufficient for its rejection? And shall the Fathers rather follow our authority, and the antiquity of Saints give way to be emended by us, and times now putrifying through their sins, pluck out the grey hairs of the Apostolic Age? And yet, my brother, be not troubled; Christian is my name, Catholic is my surname. [Christianus mihi nomen est, Catholicus cognomen.] The former [Christian] qualifies me, while the latter [Catholic] proclaims me for what I am. The latter [Catholic] demonstrates what the former [Christian] signifies.”

“8.   And, if I finally must explain the word Catholic and translate it from the Greek into the Roman idiom, Catholic means ubique Unum - everywhere One, or, as the more learned - doctores  - think, obedience to all the Commandments of God.  Whence the Apostle, whether you be obedient in all things (2 Corinthians 2:9).  And again, For as by the disobedience of one man, many were made sinners; so also by the obedience of One, many shall be made just (Romans 5:19).  Therefore he who is a Catholic, the same man is obedient   He who is obedient, the same is a Christian, and thus the Catholic is a Christian. Wherefore our people, when named Catholic are separated by this appellation from the heretical name. But if also the word Catholic means ubique Unum - everywhere One, as those first think, David indicates this very thing, when he saith,  The Queen stood at thy right hand, in gilded clothing; surrounded with variety (Psalm 44:10). ....If thou askest the reason of the name, it is evident.”

(Bishop Saint Pacian [b. c. 310  A.D. - d. 390 A.D.], Father of the Catholic Church, Bishop of Barcelona, Spain [360 A.D. - 390 A.D.], Epistola I, Contra Sympronianum, De Catholico Nomine, ¶ 7 and ¶ 8.  Letter I, Against Sympronian, a.k.a. Sympronianus, On the Catholic Name, ¶ 7 and ¶ 8. [375 A.D.]; De Scriptoribus Ecclesiasticis; emphasis added.

For the record, it should also be noted that, like all of the Apostles, except Saint John, and like many of the Priests and Bishops of the Catholic Church during the first 1,200 years of her existence, and like over 60 Roman Catholic Popes,   Bishop Saint Pacian was validly Married.

The validly Married couple had at least one Child, a Son - Flavius Lucius Dexter who became the High Chamberlain to the Roman Emperor Flavius Theodosius Augustus I [b. in January, 347 - d. on January 17, 395], Emperor [379 to January 17, 395], and the Praetorian Prefect to his Son, the Roman Emperor Flavius Honorius Augustus [b. on September 9, 384 - d.

Dogmas of Faith cannot be altered one jot or tittle because of the law [of Faith] we are told one jot, or one tittle shall not pass of the law(Matthew 5:18).”  (Catholicus Saint Basil the Great [b.

Nor was Mary less than was befitting the Mother of Christ.  When the Apostles fled, she stood before the Cross and with reverent gaze beheld her Son's wounds, for she waited not for her Child's death, but the world's salvation.” (Patriarch Saint Ambrose [b. in Gaul, possibly at Trier, Arles, or Lyons in 340 A.D. - d. at Milan, Italy on Friday, April 4, 397 A.D.] Patriarch of Milan [374 A.D. - Friday, April 4, 397 A.D.], Father and Doctor of the Catholic Church, Letters, # 63, written in 396 A.D.)

It may be that under the symbolic figure of that Woman, Mother-in-Law of Simon [Peter] and Andrew, it was our flesh that was ill, suffering from the fever of various crimes.” (Patriarch Saint Ambrose [b. in Gaul, possibly at Trier, Arles, or Lyons in 340 A.D. - d. at Milan, Italy on Friday, April 4, 397 A.D.] Patriarch of Milan [374 A.D. - Friday, April 4, 397 A.D.], Father and Doctor of the Catholic Church, Espositio Evangelii Secundum Lucam, - An Exposition of the Gospel According to Luke, 4. Found in:  “Corpus Christianorum” 14, 128; emphasis added.)

Editor’s Note/Commentary/Analysis:

In the above quote, it is very easy to miss the word and in Mother-in-Law of Simon [Peter] and Andrew.  Research indicates that the Apostles, who were also biological Brothers, Saint Peter and Saint Andrew, married biological Sisters!  In other words, the Mother-in-Law of Saint Peter was also the same Mother-in-Law of Saint Andrew!  Most probably the reason for this was that when they were children, they all lived in the same small village, and had known one another from a young age?  It was apparently somewhat common in those days to marry a person one had already known for some years when growing up?

“... [Peter] exercised his primacy, that is, the primacy of confession, NOT of honor; the primacy of belief, NOT of rank.” (Patriarch Saint Ambrose [b. in Gaul, possibly at Trier, Arles, or Lyons in 340 A.D. - d. at Milan, Italy on Friday, April 4, 397 A.D.] Patriarch of Milan [374 A.D. - Friday, April 4, 397 A.D.], Father and Doctor of the Catholic Church, The Sacrament Of The Incarnation of Our Lord, Chapter 4, ¶ ¶ 27-33; emphasis added.)

Cease laboring in vain and sowing upon rock, many have been saying to me. But I hearkened to none of themFor there is Hope, I said to myself, that, God willing, my writing will accomplish something; but if that which We deprecate should take place, We shall at least have the advantage
of escaping self reproach for keeping silence, and We shall not be worse than sailors on the sea, who, when they behold men of their own craft drifting on a plank, because their ship has been broken to pieces by the winds and waves, take down their sails, and cast anchor, and get into a boat and try to rescue the men, although strangers, known to them only in consequence of their calamity.

But, if the others were unwilling to be rescued, no one would accuse those of their destruction
who attempted to save them.  This is what We offer YOU; but We trust that, by the Grace of God, YOU also will do your part!”  (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, Treatise on the Priesthood, Book I, An Exhortation to Theodoret after His Fall, Letter II, ¶ 5; emphasis added).

Nothing so becomes a Church as silence and good order.    Noise belongs to theatres, and baths, and public processions, and market-places: but where doctrines, and such doctrines, are the subject of teaching, there should be stillness, and quiet, and calm reflection, and a haven of much repose.”  (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, Homily XXX [30] on Acts 13:42; emphasis added.)

“[Saint Paul commands,] ‘Therefore, brethren, stand fast and hold the Traditions which you have been taught, whether by word [oral Tradition] or by Our letter [written Tradition - Scripture]’ [2 Thessalonians 2:15]. From this it is clear that they did not hand down everything by letter [written Tradition - Scripture], but there is much also that was not written [oral Tradition]. Like that which was written [written Tradition - Scripture], the unwritten [oral Tradition] too is worthy of belief. So let us regard the Tradition [oral Tradition] of the Church also as worthy of belief. Is it a Tradition? Seek no further”  (Patriarch Saint John Chrysostom [b.

“We must hold to the Christian religion and to communication in her Church, which is Catholic and which is called Catholic, not only by her own members but even by all her enemies. For whether they will or not, even heretics and schismatics, when talking, not among themselves, but with outsiders, call the Catholic Church nothing else but the Catholic Church.  For otherwise they would not be understood unless they distinguish the Catholic Church by that name which she bears through out the whole world.”  (Bishop Saint Augustine, a.k.a. Aurelius Augustinus [b. Tagaste, Africa, Saturday, November 13, 354 A.D. - d.

“The Rock (Petra) made Peter true, for the Rock was Christ (1 Corinthians 10:4).”   (Bishop Saint Augustine, a.k.a. Aurelius Augustinus [b. Tagaste, Africa, Saturday, November 13, 354 A.D. - d. Hippo Regia, Africa, Wednesday, August 28, 430 A.D.], Bishop of Hippo Regia, Father and Doctor of the Catholic Church, the Doctor of Grace, a protégé of Patriarch Saint Ambrose [b. in Gaul, possibly at Trier, Arles, or Lyons in 340 A.D. - d. at Milan, Italy on Friday, April 4, 397 A.D.] Patriarch of Milan [374 A.D. - Friday, April 4, 397 A.D.]. Saint Augustine’s Sermon XCVII [97]; [CXLVII [147] in the Benedictine Edition.]; On the Same Words of the Gospel of John 21:15, “Simon, Son of John, Lovest Thou Me More than These?” etc.; emphasis added )

“1. THE Gospel which has just been read touching the Lord Christ, who walked on the waters of the sea; and the Apostle Peter, who as he was walking, tottered through fear, and sinking in distrust, rose again by confession, gives us to understand that the sea is the present world, and the Apostle Peter the type of the One Church. For Peter in the order of Apostles first, and in the love of Christ most forward, answers oftentimes alone for all the rest.

“Again, when the Lord Jesus Christ asked, whom men said that He was, and when the disciples gave the various opinions of men, and the Lord asked again and said,

But whom say ye that I am?
“Peter answered,
Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.
“One for many gave the answer, Unity in many.

“Then said the Lord to Him:

Blessed art thou, Simon Barjonas: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but My Father Who is in Heaven.
“Then He added,
and I say unto thee.
“As if He had said,
Because thou hast said unto Me, ‘Thou art the Christ the Son of the living God;’ I also say unto thee, ‘Thou art Peter.’
“For before [that] he was called Simon. Now this name of Peter was given him by the Lord, and that in a figure, that he should signify the Church [i.e. the Christian people]. For seeing that Christ is the rock (Petra)Peter is  [signifies] the Christian people.

“For the rock (Petra) is the original name. Therefore Peter is so called from the Rock [Christ]not the rock from Peter; as Christ is not called Christ from the Christian, but the Christian from Christ.

Therefore,  He saith,

Thou art Peter; and upon this Rock
which thou hast confessedupon this Rock  [Christ] which thou hast acknowledged, saying,
“Thou art the [Rock] Christ, the Son of the living God, will I build My Church;”
“that is upon Myself  [Christ - the Rock], the Son of the living God,
will I [Christ - the Rock] build My Church.
I [Christ - the Rock] will build thee [Peter] upon Myself [Christ - the Rock], NOT Myself [Christ - the Rock] upon thee [Peter].”

“2. For men who wished to be built upon men, said:

I am of Paul; and I of Apollos; and I of Cephas,
“who is Peter.

But others who did not wish to be built upon Peter, but upon the Rock, said:

But I am of Christ.
And when the Apostle Paul ascertained that he was chosen, and Christ despised, he said,
Is Christ divided? was Paul Crucified for you? or were ye Baptized in the name of Paul?
And, as not in the name of Paul, so neither in the name of Peter; but in the name of Christ: that Peter might be built upon the Rock  [Christ],  NOT the Rock   [Christ]  upon Peter.”   (Bishop Saint Augustine, a.k.a.

d. Island of Lerins, c. 450 A.D.

Pope Saint Stephen I
Friday, May 12, 254 - 
Sunday, August 2, 257

“In an Epistle sent at the time to Africa, he [Pope Saint Stephen I (Friday, May 12, 254 - Sunday, August 2, 257)] laid down this RULE:

Let there be no innovation - nothing but what has been handed down.
“For that holy and prudent man well knew that true piety admits no other rule than that whatsoever things have been faithfully received from our Fathers the same are to be faithfully consigned to posterityIt is our duty to follow Religion, not to make Religion follow us.  The proper characteristic of Christians is not to impose their own beliefs or observances upon posterity, but to preserve and keep what we have received from those who went before us. What then was the issue of the whole matter? What but the usual and customary one?  Antiquity was retained, novelty [i.e. change] was rejected”  (Father Saint Vincent of Lerins, [b. Toul, France, c. 400 A.D. - d. Island of Lerins, c. 450 A.D.], A Commonitory [an aid to memory] for the Antiquity and Universality of the Catholic Faith Against the Profane Novelties of All Heresies, Chapter VI, ¶ 16; emphasis added).

Magnopere curandum est ut id teneamus quod ubique, quod semper, quod ab omnibus creditum estCare must especially be had that that [Faith] be held, which was believed everywhere, always, and by all”  (Father Saint Vincent of Lerins, A Commonitory [an aid to memory] for the Antiquity and Universality of the Catholic Faith Against the Profane Novelties of All Heresies, Chapter 3; emphasis added).


From Councils of the Roman Catholic Church


First Council of Chalcedon
[Sunday, October 8, 451 A.D. -  Wednesday, November 1, 451 A.D.]

“We have only one doctrine; this is the faith of the Doctors of the Church; this is the faith of the Holy Apostles; this is the faith which has saved the world”  (Fourth Œcumenical Council, the First Council of Chalcedon [Sunday, October 8, 451 A.D. -  Wednesday, November 1, 451 A.D.]).

“But such as dare either to put together another faith, or to bring forward or to teach or to deliver a different Creed... let them be anathema [i.e. automatically excommunicated]” (Fourth Œcumenical Council, the First Council of Chalcedon, Session 5, Sunday, October 22, 451 A.D.).



Second Council of Nicæa
[Thursday, September 24, 787 A.D. - Friday, October 23, 787 A.D.]

“We preserve the teachings of the Fathers [of the Church]; We anathematize those who add or subtract anything(Seventh Œcumenical Council, the Second Council of Nicæa [Thursday, September 24, 787 A.D. - Friday, October 23, 787 A.D.]; emphasis added).

“If anyone rejects all ecclesiastical Tradition, either written or unwritten:  let him be anathema. (Seventh Œcumenical Council, the Second Council of Nicæa [Thursday, September 24, 787 A.D. - Friday, October 23, 787 A.D.], Anathema 4).



Fourth Lateran Council
[Sunday, November 1, 1215 A.D. - Monday, November 30, 1215 A.D.]

There is one Universal Church of the Faithful, outside of which there is absolutely no salvation”  (Twelfth Œcumenical Council, the Fourth Lateran Council - [Sunday, November 1, 1215 A.D. - Monday, November 30, 1215 A.D.], Canon 1; emphasis added).

We excommunicate and anathematize every heresy that raises against the holy, orthodox and Catholic faith... condemning all heretics under whatever names they may be known” (Twelfth Œcumenical Council, the Fourth Lateran Council - [Sunday, November 1, 1215 A.D. - Monday, November 30, 1215 A.D.], Canon 3; emphasis added).



Council of Trent
Session Six, Monday, January 13, 1547 A.D.

But, though He died for all, yet do not all receive the benefit of His death, but those only unto whom the merit of His Passion is communicated. For as in truth men, if they were not born propagated of the seed of Adam, would not be born unjust, seeing that, by that propagation, they contract through him, when they are conceived, injustice as their own, so, if they were not born again in Christ, they never would be justified; seeing that, in that new birth, there is bestowed upon them, through the merit of His passion, the grace whereby they are made just. For this benefit the Apostle exhorts us, evermore to give thanks to the Father, who hath made us worthy to be partakers of the lot of the saints in light, and hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the Kingdom of the Son of His love, in whom we have redemption, and remission of sins.”  (“The Canons and Decrees of the Sacred and Œcumenical Council of Trent”, Translated by Father James Waterworth, Session Six, Monday, January 13, 1547, “Decree on Justification”, Chapter III, Who Are Justified Through Christ, pp. 31-32; emphasis added).



The Roman Catechism
The Catechism of the Council of Trent

“The additional words ‘for you and for many’, are taken, some from Matthew, some from Luke [Matt. xxvi.28, Luke xxii.20], but were joined together by the Catholic Church under the guidance of the Spirit of God. They serve to declare the fruit and advantage of His Passion. For if we look to its value, we must confess that the Redeemer shed His Blood for the salvation of all; but if we look to the fruit which mankind have received from it, we shall easily find that it pertains NOT UNTO ALL, but to MANY of the human race. When therefore (our Lord) said: ‘For you’, He meant either those who were present, or those chosen from among the Jewish people, such as were, with the exception of Judas, the Disciples with whom He was speaking. When He added, ‘And for many’, He wished to be understood to mean the remainder of the Elect from among the Jews or Gentiles.”  (The Roman Catechism, a.k.a. The Catechism of the Council of Trent, The Eucharist,  ¶ 63.); emphasis added).

With reason, therefore, were the words for all  not used, as in this place the fruits of the Passion are alone spoken of, and to the elect only did His Passion bring the fruit of salvation. And this is the purport of the Apostle when he says: Christ was offered once to exhaust the sins of many [Hebrews 9:28]; and also of the words of our Lord in John: I pray for them; I pray not for the world, but for them whom Thou hast given Me, because they are Thine [John 17:9].”  (The Roman Catechism, a.k.a. The Catechism of the Council of Trent, The Eucharist,  ¶ 64.); emphasis added).



Pope Leo XIII, Gioacchino Vincenzo Pecci
Wednesday, February 20, 1878 - Monday, July 20, 1903

Concerning The Catechism of the Council of Trent

“23. We recommend equally that all Seminarists have in their hands, and frequently peruse, that golden book known as ‘The Catechism of the Council of Trent’, or ‘Roman Catechism’, dedicated to all Priests invested with the Pastoral Office (Catechismus ad Parochos). Noted both for the richness and exactness of its Doctrine, and for the elegance of its style, this Catechism is a precious summary of all theology, both dogmatic and moral. The Priest who knows it thoroughly has always at his disposal resources which will enable him to preach with fruit, to acquit himself fitly in the important ministry of the Confessional and the Direction of Souls, and be in a position to refute triumphantly the objections of unbelievers” (Pope Leo XIII, Gioacchino Vincenzo Pecci [Wednesday, February 20, 1878 - Monday, July 20, 1903], Encyclical, “Depuis Le Jour”, On the Education of the Clergy, Friday, September 8, 1899, ¶ 23; emphasis added.)


Pope Saint Pius X
Giuseppe Sarto
Tuesday, August 4, 1903 - Thursday, August 20, 1914

Concerning The Catechism of the Council of Trent

“24. VI. Since it is a fact that in these days Adults need instruction no less than the young, all Pastors, and those having the Care of Souls, shall explain the Catechism to the people in a plain and simple style adapted to the intelligence of their hearers. This shall be carried out on all holy days of obligation, at such time as is most convenient for the people, but not during the same hour when the children are instructed, and this instruction must be in addition to the usual homily on the Gospel which is delivered at the parochial Mass on Sundays and holy days. The Catechetical  instruction shall be based on ‘The Catechism of the Council of Trent’; and the matter is to be divided in such a way that in the space of four or five years, treatment will be given to the Apostles' Creed, the Sacraments, the Ten Commandments, the Lord's Prayer and the Precepts of the Church.” (Pope Saint Pius X, Giuseppe Sarto [Tuesday, August 4, 1903 - Thursday, August 20, 1914], Encyclical “Acerbo Nimis”, On Teaching Christian Doctrine, ¶ 24, Saturday, April 15, 1905; emphasis added).



Council of Trent
Session 13, Thursday, October 11, 1551 A.D.

“Canon 1. If anyone denies that in the Sacrament of the Most Holy Eucharistare contained truly, really and substantially the Body and Blood together with the Soul and Divinity of our Lord Jesus Christ and consequently the whole Christ, but says that He is in it only as in a sign, or figure or force; let him be anathema” (Council of Trent, Session 13, Thursday, October 11, 1551; emphasis added).

“Canon 2.  If anyone says that in the Sacred and Holy Sacrament of the Eucharist the substance of the bread and wine remains conjointly with the Body and Blood of our Lord Jesus Christ and denies that wonderful and singular change of the whole substance of the bread into the Body and the whole substance of the wine into the Blood, the appearances only of bread and wine remaining, which change the Catholic Church most aptly calls TRANSUBSTANTIATION; let him be anathema” (Council of Trent, Session 13, Thursday, October 11, 1551; emphasis added).



Council of Trent
Session 22, Monday, September 17, 1562 A.D.

Canons on the Holy Sacrifice
of the Catholic Traditional Mass
by the Roman Catholic Council of Trent

CANON I.  If any one saith, that in the Mass a true and real Sacrifice is not offered to God; or that to be offered is nothing else than that Christ is given to us to eat [as in the Protestant Memorial Supper Meal used in the Satanic Synod Vatican 2 church today]; let him be anathema.

CANON II.  If any one saith, that by those words, Do this for the commemoration of me (Luke xxii. 19), Christ did not institute the Apostles Priests; or, did not ordain that they, and other Priests should offer His own Body and Blood; let him be anathema.

CANON III. If any one saith, that the Sacrifice of the Mass is only a sacrifice of praise and of thanksgiving; or, that it is a bare commemoration of the Sacrifice consummated on the Cross, but not a propitiatory Sacrifice; or, that it profits him only who receives; and that it ought not to be offered for the living and the dead for sins, pains, satisfactions, and other necessities; let him be anathema.

CANON IV.  If any one saith, that, by the Sacrifice of the Mass, a blasphemy is cast upon the most Holy Sacrifice of Christ consummated on the Cross; or, that it is thereby derogated from; let him be anathema.

CANON V.   If any one saith, that it is an imposture to celebrate Masses in honour of the saints, and for obtaining their intercession with God, as the Church intends; let him be anathema.

CANON VI.   If any one saith, that the Canon of the [Ancient Roman Rite of] Mass contains errors and is therefore to be abrogated [abolished]; let him be anathema.

CANON VII.   If any one saith, that the ceremonies, vestments, and outward signs, which the Catholic Church makes use of in the celebration of Masses, are incentives to impiety, rather than offices of piety; let him be anathema.

CANON VIII.   If any one saith, that Masses, wherein the Priest alone communicates Sacramentally, are unlawful, and are, therefore, to be abrogated [abolished]; let him be anathema.

CANON IX. If any one saith, that the [Ancient Roman] Rite of the Roman Church, according to which a part of the Canon and the words of Consecration are pronounced in a low tone, is to be condemned; or, that the Mass ought to be celebrated in the vulgar tongue only; or, that water ought not to be mixed with the wine that is to be offered in the chalice, for that it is contrary to the institution of Christ; let him be anathema.



HOPE
 
“Rejoicing in Hope.  Patient in tribulation.  Instant in prayer” (Romans 12:12).

“Now the God of Hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing; that you may abound in Hope, and in the power of the Holy Ghost”  (Romans 15:13).

“Charity is patient, is kind: Charity...beareth all things, Believeth all things, Hopeth all things, endureth all things” (1 Corinthians 13:4, 7).

“Now Faith is the substance of things to be Hoped for, the evidence of things that appear not” (Hebrews 11:1).



Judgement shall begin at the House of God.

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).
