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!

“[To each member of the Clergy, it belongs] to make himself a road block to the attacks of error and the deceits of heresy; to watch the tactics of the wicked who war against the Faith....; to unmask the plots and to reveal the ambushes and traps; they must warn naive people, strengthen those who are timid, and open the eyes of the blinded.”
“Superficial erudition, or merely common knowledge,
will not suffice for all of this - there is the need for the solid, profound
and continuous study [by all the Clergy] of a massive amount of Doctrinal
knowledge which must be sufficient to cope with the subtlety and remarkable
cunning of our Modern opponents....” (Pope Leo XIII, Gioacchino Vincenzo

“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 believe. But we are not permitted to believe whatever we choose, nor to choose whatever someone else has believed. We 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[Galatians 1:8]” (Bishop Saint Isidore of Seville, Spain, [b. Cartagena, Spain 560 A.D. - d. Seville, Spain, 636 A.D.], Doctor of the Catholic Church, Etymologies, 8, 3; emphasis added).

“The prophets who foretold the coming of Christ could not continue further than John, who, with his finger, pointed to Christ actually present. Nevertheless as [Saint] Jerome says on this passage, ‘This does not mean that there were no more prophets after John. For we read in the Acts of the Apostles that Agabus and the four maidens, daughters of Philip, prophesied.’ John, too, wrote a prophetic book about the end of the Church; and at all times there have not been lacking persons having the spirit of prophecy, not indeed for the declaration of any new doctrine of faith, but for the direction of human acts. Thus Augustine says (De Civ. Dei [City of God] v, 26) that ‘the emperor Theodosius sent to John who dwelt in the Egyptian desert, and whom he knew by his ever-increasing fame to be endowed with the prophetic spirit: and from him he received a message assuring him of victory’” (Saint Thomas Aquinas, O.P., Summa Theologica, Part II-II, Question 174, Article 6, Reply to Objection 3; emphasis added).
regard to the visits of the Lord, we must also remember that they often
differ appreciably. There are visits of consolation, like the apparitions
of Lourdes; But if people do not profit by them, the Lord comes to chastise;
and if they do not profit by this Divine correction, He may come to condemn.
[Footnote # 4: Cf. Saint Thomas In Isaiam, Chap. 24: ‘The
visitation of the Lord is multiple; of consolation...of correction...and
at times of condemnation.’]” (Reverend Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange, O.P.

Brief Excerpt of The Secret of LaSalette given to Frances Melanie Mathieu
“Lucifer, with a very great number of demons will be unchained from Hell. By degrees they shall abolish the Faith, even among persons Consecrated to God. They shall blind them in such a manner that, without very special Graces, these persons shall imbibe the spirit of those wicked angels. Many Religious Houses will entirely lose the Faith, and shall be the cause of the loss of many persons. ...And tremble you also who make profession of serving Jesus Christ, but inwardly worship yourselves, because God has delivered you to His enemies, because corruption is in holy places.... Rome will lose the Faith and become the seat of anti-Christ.”
On Saturday, September 19, 1846, the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared near LaSalette, France to two children, Peter Maximim Giraud, 11 years old, and to Frances Melanie Mathieu, 14 years old.
Each one was given Secret Prophecies which were sent to Pope Pius IX who, on August 24, 1852, recognized this Apparition and these Secret Prophecies as genuine. The Pope also permitted Bishop de Bruillard to make a like pronouncement. Bishop de Bruillard obtained the help of his friend Bishop Villecourt of La Rochelle in this regard. Melanie's entire Secret was published in 1879 with the approval of the Bishop of Lecce in Italy.
Since the Prophecy of Our Lady was fulfilled that Lucifer, with a very great number of demons will be unchained from Hell it is logical and rational to understand why the human agents of the demons would want to attack this Prophecy.
This they have done, not by directly attacking it - that would never work and Lucifer, who is Satan, knows this, but rather by attempting to confuse people with their subtle propaganda of lies against it which too often easily deceive even the most devout Catholics!
1) What I have already made known at LaSalette through the children Melanie and Maximin, I repeat today before you.these Prophecies of Our Lady of Fatima are consistent with the Prophecies of Our Lady of LaSalette, who, at Fatima, specifically referred to her previous Prophecies at LaSalette, but gave more details, as found in the above examples 2 through 5!
2) Even in the highest positions, it is Satan who governs and decides how affairs are to be conducted.
3) There will also come a time of the hardest trials ... Cardinals will be against Cardinals, and Bishops against Bishops.[Editor's Note: This happened at Synod Vatican 2 (Thursday, October 11, 1962 - Wednesday, December 8, 1965)].4) Satan will put himself in their midst.[Editor's Note: This happened at Synod Vatican 2].5) In Rome, there will also be big changes.[Editor's Note: The liturgical rites for the Mass and Sacraments were changed; Altars were replaced with tables; statues, etc. were thrown out.].
Examples 2 and 3, but most especially examples 4 and 5, verify that in fact Our Lady of LaSalette did Prophecize that:
corruption is in holy places.... Rome will lose the Faith and become the seat of anti-Christ.When will victimized Catholics, similar to what the victims in the movie They Live eventually did, put on the proverbial glasses of Truth to see very clearly all of the anti-Catholic Infiltrators who have invaded the Church and taken control of the Church by taking control of the Vatican itself, and who have thrown out everything that is Catholic except for the Catholic name and the real estate and bank accounts??!!
To rejuvenate the famous observation of Saint Jerome:
“The whole world groaned, and was astonished to find itself Arian” (Saint Jerome, a.k.a. Eusebius Hieronymus, a.k.a. Sophronius [b. Stridon, Dalmatia c. 340 A.D. - d. Bethlehem, Palestine, Wednesday, September 30, 420 A.D.], Doctor of the Catholic Church, “The Dialogue Against the Luciferians”, ¶ 19; emphasis added).Today it can be said, based upon the continuing changes in the Vatican 2 church, a.k.a. the church of the Never-Ending Changes of the changes of the changes of the changes of the changes of the changes, which has the Satanic audacity to try to still call itself Catholic, that:
“The Catholic world, when it finally wakes up from having been demonically hypnotized by the lying propaganda of the anti-Catholic Infiltrators, and, after putting on the glasses of Truth, will be totally terrified to find itself no longer Catholic!”

Who Wrote Down the Three Secrets of Fatima
The THIRD MEMOIR of Sister Lucy
Dated August 31, 1941
Written for the Bishop of Leiria-Fatima, Portugal
What is the secret? It seems to me that I can reveal it, since I already have permission from Heaven to do so. God's representatives on earth have authorized me to do this several times and in various letters, one of which, I believe, is in your keeping. This letter is from Father José Bernardo Gonçalves, and in it he advises me to write to the Holy Father, suggesting, among other things, that I should reveal the Secret. I did say something about it. But in order not to make my letter too long, since I was told to keep it short, I confined myself to the essentials, leaving it to God to provide another more favourable opportunity.
In my second account I have already described in detail the doubt which tormented me from 13 June until 13 July, and how it disappeared completely during the Apparition on that day.
Well, the Secret is made up of three distinct parts, two of which I am now going to reveal.
The first part is the vision of Hell.
Our Lady showed us a great sea of fire which seemed to be under the earth. Plunged in this fire were demons and souls in human form, like transparent burning embers, all blackened or burnished bronze, floating about in the conflagration, now raised into the air by the flames that issued from within themselves together with great clouds of smoke, now falling back on every side like sparks in a huge fire, without weight or equilibrium, and amid shrieks and groans of pain and despair, which horrified us and made us tremble with fear. The demons could be distinguished by their terrifying and repulsive likeness to frightful and unknown animals, all black and transparent. This vision lasted but an instant. How can we ever be grateful enough to our kind heavenly Mother, who had already prepared us by promising, in the first Apparition, to take us to Heaven. Otherwise, I think we would have died of fear and terror.
We then looked up at Our Lady, who said to us so kindly and so sadly:
“You have seen Hell where the Souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The war is going to end: but if people do not cease offending God, a worse one will break out during the Pontificate of Pius XI. When you see a night illumined by an unknown light, know that this is the great sign given you by God that he is about to punish the world for its crimes, by means of war, famine, and persecutions of the Church and of the Holy Father. To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the Consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of reparation on the First Saturdays. If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated. In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she shall be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world”. ** Please Note: It is here, in her FOURTH MEMOIR, that Sister Lucy adds: “In Portugal, the dogma of the faith will always be preserved, etc. ...”. (emphasis added.)
Beginning on Sunday, May 13, 1917, our Blessed Mother appeared once a month for six months at Fatima, Portugal, to three young children: Lucia, Jacinta and Francisco. During her visit on Friday, July 13, Mary gave a Secret to the three children. It is divided into three parts.
The First Part of the Secret is the vision of Hell which the children saw.
The Second Part of the Secret is a prophetic message about the end of World War I and a conditional prophecy about the beginning of World War II.
The first two parts of the Secret were revealed years ago. But until Monday, June 26, 2000, the Vatican had never “officially” revealed the Third Secret of Fatima. You will find it to be very interesting, to say the least, to compare the "Extract" which the Vatican "unofficially" released to world leaders in 1960 with the supposed "official full text" they claim to have revealed on Monday, June 26, 2000. It is obvious that these two versions are different from each other!
Please keep in mind that both the Second and Third Parts of the Secret were actual prophecies at the time the Blessed Virgin Mary revealed them on Friday, July 13, 1917.
How many of you remember the great anticipation Roman Catholics had in 1960 waiting for 2nd Pope John 23rd, Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli [Tuesday, October 28, 1958 - Monday, June 3, 1963], to release the full text of the Third Secret of Fatima? There was also great disappointment that it was not released.
The Office of the Vatican Secretariat of State secretly, albeit "unofficially", released an “Extract” of the Third Secret of Fatima in October, 1960, in the form in which you find it below, to the diplomatic services in Washington, D.C., London, England, and Moscow, Russia.
This “Extract” of the Third Secret of Fatima was also sent personally to United States President John F. Kennedy, Great Britain Prime Minister Harold MacMillan, and Russian Party Chairman Nikita Khrushchev, so as to let all three of them study it in private.
Louis Emrich obtained a copy of this "Extract" of the Third Secret of Fatima in 1963, apparently from the Office of the Vatican Secretariat of State, although some claim it was personally given to him by Cardinal Ottaviani. Louis Emrich was a "contact" for the German newspaper Neues Europa.
Louis Emrich gave a copy of this “Extract” of the Third Secret of Fatima to the German newspaper Neues Europa of Stuttgart, Germany which published it. Shortly afterwards, it was quoted by the French newspaper Le Monde et La Vie of Paris, France.
Here the "Extract" of the Third Fatima Secret is printed.
For purposes of clarity, we have arbitrarily numbered each paragraph.
In addition, those people and things to which Our Lady of Fatima made direct reference, but without mentioning names and without explicitly stating to what she was referring, are put into brackets [like this].
Also, to avoid confusion, these "Editor's Notes", clarifications, etc., will be made in blue.
But first, you must realize the importance of the Third Secret of Fatima.
The German newspaper said:
"This Fatima text played an important part in the signing of the Anglo - American - Russian Moscow agreement."It claimed that:
"This Extract from the third message of Fatima was sent to President Kennedy, Prime Minister MacMillan and Party Chairman Khrushchev, so as to let them study it in private." It also said that "the Vatican has taken steps to ensure that, until further notice, the full document will remain a papal secret."The reasonable question is this:
Is the official source reliable on which the German newspaper depended upon to guarantee the authenticity of the Third Secret of Fatima?First, Neues Europa is not a tabloid newspaper. Historically, it has been a serious source of news and its readers would not have tolerated being mislead.
Second, how could such a well-respected newspaper claim to have received a copy of the "Extract" of the Third Secret of Fatima directly from the Vatican Secretariat of State, through Louis Emrich, a "contact" for the German newspaper, Neues Europa, if that was not true?
The Vatican Secretariat of State could have easily issued an official denial. But no such denial was ever issued! Did the German newspaper receive an assurance that no denial would be issued?
Thus, it seems reasonable to conclude that the official source is reliable. So, instead of the Vatican printing the "Extract" in the Pope's official newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano [Roman Observer], it unofficially "leaked" the "Extract" through Louis Emrich, a "contact" for the German newspaper, Neues Europa, of Stuttgart, Germany.
TEXT AS PRINTED
LE MONDE ET LA VIE
THE FATIMA SECRET WORDS FROM HEAVEN
It was the 13th of October, 1917.
[Editor's Note: The actual date was Friday, July 13, 1917.]On that day, the Holy Virgin [Mary] appeared for the last time to the little visionaries Jacinta, Francisco and Lucia at the end of a series of, in all, six apparitions. After the manifestation of the miracle of the sun at Fatima, the Mother of God revealed a special secret message to Lucia, in which she particularly stated:
The Blessed Mother's Exact Words:
1. Don't worry, Dear Child, I am the Mother of God speaking to you and begging you to proclaim in my name the following message to the entire world....
2. In doing this, you will meet with great hostility. But be steadfast in the faith and you will overcome this hostility. Listen, and remember well what I say to you: men must become better. They must implore the remission of the sins which they have committed and will continue to commit. You ask me for a miraculous sign so that all may understand the words in which, through you, I address mankind. This miracle you have just seen was the great miracle of the sun! Everyone has seen it - believers, and unbelievers, country and city dwellers, scholars and journalists, laymen and Priests. And now, in my name, it is proclaimed:
3. A great punishment shall
[conditionally]come to all mankind, not as yet today, nor even tomorrow, but in the second half of the Twentieth Century. What I have already made known at LaSalette through the children Melanie and Maximin, I repeat today before you. Mankind has not developed as God expected. Mankind has been sacrilegious and has trampled underfoot the [Spiritual] Gifts which were given it.
4. There is no order in anything. Even in the highest positions, it is Satan who governs and decides how affairs are to be conducted. He will even know how to find his way to the highest positions in the Church. He will succeed in sowing confusion in the minds of the great scholars who invent arms with which half mankind can be destroyed in a few minutes."
5. He will bring the mighty ones under his thumb and make them manufacture armament in bulk. If mankind does not refrain, I shall be forced to let fall my Son's arm. If those at the top in the world and in the Church do not oppose these acts, it is I who shall do so, and I shall pray God my Father to visit His justice on men."
6. Then it is that God will punish men more harshly and more severely than he punished them by the flood, and the great and powerful shall perish thereby as well as the small and weak
7. There will also come a time of the hardest trials for the [Roman Catholic] Church. Cardinals will be against Cardinals, and Bishops against Bishops.
[Editor's Note: This happened at Synod Vatican 2 (Thursday, October 11, 1962 - Wednesday, December 8, 1965)].Satan will put himself in their midst.
[Editor's Note: This happened at Synod Vatican 2].In Rome, there will also be big changes.
[Editor's Note: The liturgical rites for the Mass and Sacraments were changed; Altars were replaced with tables; statues, etc. were thrown out.].What is rotten will fall, and what will fall must not be maintained.
The[Roman Catholic]Church will be darkened and the world plunged into confusion.
8. The big, big war
[World War III]will
[conditionally]happen in the second half of the Twentieth Century.
[N.B. The fact that it did not happen then does not automatically mean it will never happen!].Then fire and smoke will fall from the sky and the waters of the oceans will be turned to steam - hurling their foam towards the sky; and all that is standing will be overthrown.
9. Millions and more millions of men [women and children] will lose their lives from one hour to the next; and those who remain living at that moment will envy those who are dead. There will be tribulation wherever the eye can see and misery over all the earth and desolation in all countries.
10. The time is continually approaching, the abyss is growing wider, and there is no end. The good will die with the wicked, the big with the small, the princes of the [Roman Catholic] Church with their faithful, and the sovereigns of the world with their subjects. Satan's henchmen will then be the only sovereigns on earth.
11. This will be a time which neither King nor Emperor, Cardinal nor Bishop is expecting, but it will come, nevertheless, in accordance with my Father's plans, to punish and avenge.
12. Later, however, when those who survive all things are still alive, God and His glory will once more be invoked and will once more be served as He was not so long ago, when the world had not yet been corrupted.
13. I call on all true imitators of my Son Jesus Christ; all true Christians and latter day Apostles. The time of times is coming and the end of all ends, if mankind is not converted and if this conversion does not come from above, from the directors of the world and the directors of the [Roman Catholic] Church. But woe, woe if this conversion does not come about and if all remains as it is, nay, if all becomes even worse.
14. Go, my child, and proclaim it! I shall remain always by your side, to help you.
“The mystery of which I am about to speak, with many others concerning our great Queen, was recorded by the Evangelist [Saint John] in the metaphors of the 21st Chapter of the Apocalypse; especially introducing the most holy Mary under the type of the holy Jerusalem and describing her under cover of all the circumstances mentioned in that chapter. Although in the first part I have explained it at length in 3 chapters, applying it as it was then given me to understand, to the mystery of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mother; yet it is necessary now to interpret it in relation to the mystery of the descent of the Queen of Angels after the Ascension of the Lord.
b. at Ágreda, Spain on Tuesday, April 2, 1602 - d. at Ágreda, Spain on Sunday, May 24, 1665
“Let it not be objected that there is a contradiction or repugnance in these different applications: for both of them are legitimately founded on the literal text of the Scriptures and there can be no doubt that the Divine Wisdom can comprehend in the same and identical words many mysteriesand sacraments. As David said: God hath spoken once, these two things have I heard, that power belongeth to God [Psalm 61:12]and God certainly included a double meaning in the same words without equivocation or contradiction” (Venerable Mary of Agreda, [b. at Ágreda, Spain on Tuesday, April 2, 1602 - d. at Ágreda, Spain on Sunday, May 24, 1665], Mystical City of God, Book IV, The Coronation, ¶ 14, pp. 42, 43; emphasis added).
Marie-Julie Jahenny [b. at Blain, Brittany - West France - on Tuesday, February 12, 1850 - d. at La Fraudais, a short distance Northeast of Blain, Brittany on Tuesday, March 4, 1941].
N.B. Most of the quotes are taken from “The Breton Stigmatist”, which is a biography of Marie-Julie Jahenny, by the Marquis de la Franquerie. Emphasis is frequently added.
Marie-Julie Jahenny saw that:
“There will not remain any vestige of the Holy Sacrifice, no apparent trace of the Faith. Confusion will be everywhere...”“These enemies want the church to be the place of infernal dances. This is what they seek, and this, unfortunately, too, especially in those cities where the Faith is degenerated. There will even be priests who will not have the courage to defend the Religion. For God, this is the pain that is the most heartbreaking. It is the celebration of the Mysteries of the Holy Religion which enrages the most enemies.” (September 29, 1879, Saint Michael the Archangel to Marie-Julie Jahenny.)
“It is the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass that soothes the irritated anger of the Lord” (September 29, 1879, Saint Michael the Archangel to Marie-Julie Jahenny.)
Marie-Julie Jahenny saw “many, many bishops” embracing this “infamous, sacrilegious, religion”:
Our Lord told her: “I see joining with alacrity this guilty, infamous, sacrilegious religion. I see Bishops joining... On seeing these many, many Bishops...Ah! My Heart is wounded to death-- and the whole flock following them, all of it without hesitation, hastening to damnation and Hell, My Heart is wounded to death as at the time of My Passion... (“The Breton Stigmatist”, by the Marquis de la Franquerie, October 26, 1882, pp. 34-35; emphasis added.)
Our Lord describes how Lucifer will proceed. He (Satan) will address priests: "You will dress in a large red cloak...We (devils) will give you a piece of bread and a few drops of water. You can do everything that you did when you belonged to Christ...." "But," says Our Lord, "they do not add, Consecration and Communion." (“The Breton Stigmatist”, June 3, 1880, p. 39; emphasis added.)
Marie-Julie Jahenny speaks of a “horrible religion” which would replace the Roman Catholic Church.
Thursday, November 27, 1902, the anniversary of the Miraculous Medal Apparition
[Saturday, November 27, 1830], Our Lord warned of the conspiracy of evil
people which was already inventing a new liturgy - this was in 1902!!!
- to replace the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass:
“The first period is the one of My Priesthood, existing since Me. The second is the one of the persecution, when the enemies of the Faith and of Holy Religion will impose their formulas in the book of the second celebration. These infamous spirits are those who crucified me and are awaiting the kingdom of the New Messias. Most of My Holy Priests will refuse this book sealed with he words of the abyss [Hell]. Unfortunately, they will be the exception. It will be used [by all of the others]. (emphasis added).
“There will be a book of the ‘second celebration’ by the infamous spirits who have crucified Me anew and who await the reign of a NEW Messiah to make them happy. Most Holy Priests will refuse this book sealed with the words of the abyss [Hell]. Unfortunately, they will be the exception. It will be used [by all of the others]...
Holy Sacrifices of the Altars will have taken an infernal [Satanic] form.
the streets, in cities, in the countryside and in all villages, the infectious
poison of those cursed [liturgical] books [of the ‘second celebration’]
will spread with an immensity and with a rapidity hotter than the sun's
path, from sunrise to sunset.” (July 21 1881, Our Lord to Marie-Julie
Both in 1881 and again in 1902, Our Lord prophecized about the book of the second celebration.
This obviously refers to the NEW Mass, the NOR - Novus Ordo Rite, Novus Ordo Missae, which, according to this Prophecy of Jesus Christ, is sealed with the words of Hell, having been made up under the influence of the enemy of souls and which contains words which are odious in My Sight! When Christ says that most of His Holy Priests will be the exception to using the NEW book for the Mass, the context seems to indicate that the number of Priests who do use the NEW book for the Mass will be very large, and that the number of His Holy Priests will be very tiny.
On Tuesday, May 10, 1904, Our Lady described the New Clergy and their liturgy:
“They will not stop on this hateful and sacrilegious road. They will go further to compromise all at once, and in one blow, the Holy Church, the Clergy, and the Faith of my children.”She announced the “dispersion of the pastors” by the church herself; true Pastors, who will be replaced by others formed by Hell:
“...NEW preachers of NEW sacraments, NEW temples, NEW baptisms, NEW confraternities.”
“....the NOVUS ORDO represents, both as a whole and in its details, a striking departure from the Catholic theology of the Mass as it was formulated in Session 22 of the Synod of Trent. The Canons on the [Ancient Roman] Rite definitively fixed at that time provided an insurmountable barrier to any heresy directed against the integrity of the Mystery” (His Eminence Alfredo Cardinal Ottaviani [b. on Wednesday, October 29, 1890 - d. on Friday, August 3, 1979] was Secretary of the Holy Office of the Roman Curia from 1959 to 1966 when that dicastery was reorganized as the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith, in which he served as Pro-Prefect, until 1968, the Prefect-Emeritus of the Sacred Congregation of the Faith, Letter to Pope Paul, Thursday, September 25, 1969; emphasis added).
“It is rather strong to claim that the New Mass is contrary to the Council of Trent but, displeasing as it is, it is true” (His Eminence Alfredo Cardinal Ottaviani [b. on Wednesday, October 29, 1890 - d. on Friday, August 3, 1979], Cardinal Prefect of the Supreme Holy Office).
“Are we seeking to stir up wonder, or perhaps scandal, among the Christian people, by introducing changes in so venerable a rite that has been approved for so many centuries and is now so familiar? The rite of Holy Mass should not be treated as if it were a piece of cloth to be refashioned according to the whim of each generation” (His Eminence Alfredo Cardinal Ottaviani [b. on Wednesday, October 29, 1890 - d. on Friday, August 3, 1979], Cardinal Prefect of the Holy Office, 1962, Ralph M. Wiltgen, “The Rhine Flows into the Tiber”, Tan Books, 1967, p. 28).

I can die a Catholic” (His Eminence Alfredo Cardinal Ottaviani [b.

Prefect of the Holy Office, following a speech by Cardinal Montini
- the future Paul VI - on the need for changes in the Church, June, 1962).
“...Catholic Ukrainians, who have sacrificed mountains of bodies and shed rivers of their blood for the Catholic Faith...even now are undergoing a very terrible persecution, but what is worse, they are defended by no one... Our Catholic Faithful, prohibited from celebrating the Liturgy and receiving the Sacraments, must descend into the Catacombs.
“Thousands and thousands of the Faithful, of Priests and Bishops have been thrown into prison and deported to the polar regions of Siberia. Now, however, because of negotiations and diplomacy, Ukrainian Catholics, who as martyrs and confessors suffered so much, are being thrown aside as inconvenient witnesses of past evils.
recent letters and communications which I have received, our Faithful lament:
‘Why have we suffered so much? Where is justice to be found?
Ecclesiastical diplomacy has labeled us as impediments. Cardinal
Slipyj does nothing for his Church’. “And I answer: What can
I do?...When Pimen, the Patriarch of Moscow, in an electoral Synod
declared that the Union of Brest was annulled,
not one of the Vatican
delegates present protested..... One of the eminent Cardinals
here expressed astonishment that the Ukrainians who have been treated
so badly and unjustly have, nevertheless, remained Catholic.....”

This movie is based on the novel of the same title by the Australian author Morris West which was published on Monday, June 3, 1963. This novel reached #1 on the New York Times bestseller list for adult fiction on June 30, 1963, and became the #1 bestselling novel in the United States for 1963, according to Publishers Weekly. This movie was nominated for two Academy Awards for Best Score by George Davis, and Best Art Direction by Edward Carfagno.
What is interesting about this novel is that it was also in 1963, the same year this novel was published, that the administration of Russian Premier Nikita Sergeyevich Khrushchev [b. in Kalinovka, Dmitriyevsky Uyezd, Kursk Governorate, Russian Empire on April 15, 1894 - d. in Moscow, Russia, Soviet Union, USSR, on September 11, 1971.] released his Beatitude, Uniate Patriarch Kyr Josyf Cardinal Slipyj, from a Siberian Gulag. This release came about as the result of political pressure from 2nd pope John 23rd, Angelo Giuseppe Roncalli [Tuesday, October 28, 1958 - Monday, June 3, 1963] and from the United States President John Fitzgerald Kennedy [b. at Brookline, Massachusetts on Tuesday, May 29, 1917 - d. assassinated at Dallas, Texas on Friday, November 22, 1963 (age 46)].
Monday, June 3, 1963 is the date on which this novel was published.
2) Monday, June 3, 1963 is also the same date on which 2nd pope John 23rd died.)

“[Synod Vatican 2 was] a sinister farce acted out by three thousand good-for-nothings, some of whom, despite the gold [pectoral] crosses on their chests, don’t even believe in the Trinity or the Virgin” (Bishop Antonio Romeo of the Sacred Congregation of Rites in Bob Considine’s column ON THE LINE in the NEW YORK JOURNAL AMERICAN of Friday, November 27, 1964; emphasis added).
An Open Letter to Archbishop Lefebvre
Four years ago, November 8, 1979, in an article entitled “The New Mass and The Pope”, you went on record as opposed to those who contend that we have no true Pope on the Throne of St. Peter – those who have since come to be stigmatized as “Sedevacantists”.
Because of the prominence you enjoy among Traditional Catholics – even though you have lately resigned your position as head of the Society of St. Pius X and largely retired from the public scene – most of these, including priests, have taken your authority for this and parroted your reasoning. Today they are loathe to recognize the Bishops Consecrated by Archbishop Ngo-Dihn-Thuc, who hold with him that the Popes of, and since, Vatican II are illegitimate.
“A good number of theologians,” you wrote, “teach that the Pope can be heretical as a private doctor or theologian, but not as a teacher of the Universal Church.” Reasoning that unless a Pope “willed to engage infallibility,” any doctrinal error he might make would not be made in his capacity as a teacher of the Universal Church.
Do you mean to say that a Pope does not speak as a Pope unless he speaks ex Cathedra (“willing to engage infallibility”)? If so, then we must hold that papal Bulls, Constitutions, Encyclicals, and other such lesser pronouncements are not really “papal”documents, as they are commonly called, after all.
why do you arbitrarily limit the field of discussion to whether a Pope
can become heretical, saying that he cannot be heretical as a teacher of
the Universal Church? What of one who is found to have been heretical
before his election? If perhaps a Pope cannot become formally heretical,
can a heretic be validly elected Pope? Why do you take no account of
Cum Ex Apostolatus Officio of Pope Paul IV, which solemnly declares invalid the elevation or election to office of even a (supposed) Pope who is found to “have deviated (sic) from the Catholic faith” before-hand? You blithely ignore the main authority for the stand of the Thuc Bishops.
You say that Paul VI “acted much more the Liberal than as a man attached to heresy” and that “equivocation is the very mark of a Liberal”. But in matters of orthodoxy is not ambiguity or equivocation equivalent to doubt? If so, what of the maxim, Dubius in Fide hæreticus? (Cf. Canon 1325). Are not Liberal Catholics at least suspected of heresy? Is not a Liberal Pope, on that score alone, at best a doubtful Pope?
“The visibility of the Church,” you say, “is too necessary to its existence for it to be possible that God would allow that visibility to disappear for decades”. Is your implicit allowance for it disappearing at all tantamount to doubting the indefectibility of the Catholic Church?
If her existence, as a visible society, depends entirely on the Pope, then how does it not follow that during the interregnum between the death and election of a Pope, the Church ceases to be visible? What matters the length of time?
“The reasoning of those who deny that we have a Pope,” you wrote, “puts the Church in an inextricable situation. Who will tell us who the future Pope is to be? How, as there are no (valid) Cardinals, is he to be chosen.”
By the Bishops of the Church, says St. Robert Bellarmine, in his classic work De Conciliis et Ecclesia, I, c. 14, in the event of the papacy being vacant because of heresy, it would be for them to convene, he says, in a General Council – though “Imperfect” – for this sole purpose, namely to “supply the Church with a head.” Why do you take no account of this great authority either?
You stress the necessity of a “firm maintenance of Tradition rather than the affirmation that the Pope is not the Pope”. Are the “Sedevacantists” honestly claiming that “the Pope is not the Pope”? Are not you the author of this Petitio Principii – this logical “Begging the Question” – which makes fools rather of you and your followers?
Do you think we whom you oppose are so insane as to mouth contradictions? How can anything not be what it essentially is?
If the Pope is the Pope, then he very obviously cannot not be the Pope at the same time. The question is whether this or that person is or is not the Pope; whether the supposed Pope is actually, truly or legitimately Pope – either any longer because of falling into public heresy after his otherwise valid election, or never Pope to begin with for having previously “deviated from the Catholic faith”.
But to say, or imply, that the Pope is the Pope because he is the Pope (as you and yours do) is logically ludicrous.
Unless Your Grace is prepared to publicly answer this letter to the point(ad rem),exposing the fallacies in our own argumentation, then it is high time your authority be discounted.

Dubius in Fide hæreticus
Concerning the Dubius in Fide hæreticus reference to Canon Law 1325 in the above Open Letter, this Canon states in part: “§ 2 defines three classes of Catholics who have suffered ‘shipwreck of the faith’. The first class is that of heretics who, having been baptized, retain the name of Christians, but obstinately deny or doubt some of the truths that must be believed by divine or Catholic faith.” (Rev. P. Chas. Augustine, O.S.B., D.D., Professor of Canon Law, “A Commentary on the New Code of Canon Law” [1917 Code of Canon Law], Volume 6, Administrative Law, Book III, Part IV, The Teaching Office of the Church, Profession of Faith, Canon 1325, § 2, p. 334, Imprimatur Sti. Ludovici, die 22. Nov. 1920 + Joannes J. Glennon, Archiepiscopus Sti. Ludovici, B. Herder Book Co., 1921; emphasis added).
