Epistle for Lætare Sunday - Fourth Sunday in Lent
Galatians 4:22-31.

 
The Epistle appointed to be read during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass today is taken from Saint Paul’s Epistle to the Galatians, Chapter 4, Verses 22-31.

Brethren:  It is written that Abraham had two sons:  the one by a bondwoman, and the other by a free woman.  But he who was of the bondwoman, was born according to the flesh:  but he of the free woman, was by promise.  Which things are said by an allegory.  For these are the two testaments.  The one from mount Sinai, engendering unto bondage; which is Agar:  For Sina is a mountain in Arabia, which hath affinity to that Jerusalem which now is, and is in bondage with her children.

But that Jerusalem, which is above, is free:  which is our mother.  For it is written: Rejoice, thou barren, that bearest not:  break forth and cry, thou that travailest not:  for many are the children of the desolate, more than of her that hath a husband.

Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are the children of promise.  But as then he, that was born  according to the flesh, persecuted him that was after the spirit; so also it is now.

But what saith the scripture?  Cast out the bondwoman and her son; for the son of the bondwoman shall not be heir with the son of the free woman.  So then, brethren, we are not the children of the bondwoman, but of the free:  by the freedom wherewith Christ has made us free.

Gospel for Lætare Sunday - Fourth Sunday in Lent
John 6:1-15.

Please stand for the Holy Gospel.

The Gospel appointed to be read during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass today is taken from the Holy Gospel of Saint John, Chapter 6, Verses 1-15.

After these things, Jesus went over the sea of Galilee, which is that of Tiberias.  And a great multitude followed Him, because they saw the miracles which He did on them that were diseased.

Jesus therefore went up into a mountain, and there He sat with His Disciples.

Now the pasch, the festival day of the Jews, was near at hand.  When Jesus therefore had lifted up His eyes, and seen that a very great multitude cometh to Him, He said to Philip:  Whence shall we buy bread, that these may eat?  And this He said to try him; for He Himself knew what He would do.

Philip answered Him:  Two hundred pennyworth of bread is not sufficient for them, that every one may take a little.  One of His disciples, Andrew, the Brother of Simon Peter, saith to Him:  There is a boy here that hath five barley loaves, and two fishes; but what are these among so many?

Then Jesus said: Make the men sit down.  Now there was much grass in the place.  The men therefore sat down, in number about five thousand.  And Jesus took the loaves:  and when He had given thanks, He distributed to them that were set down.  In like manner also of the fishes, as much as they would.  And when they were filled, He said to His Disciples: Gather up the fragments that remain, lest they be lost.  They gathered up therefore, and filled twelve baskets with the fragments of the five barley loaves, which remained over and above to them that had eaten.

Now those men, when they had seen what a miracle Jesus had done, said:  This is of a Truth THE Prophet, that is to come into the world.  Jesus therefore, when He knew that they would come to take Him by force, and make Him king, fled again into the mountain Himself alone.

Thus far are the words of today's Holy Gospel.

Please be seated.

“This is of a Truth THE Prophet, that is to come into the world.”
(GOSPEL of today’s Mass [John 6:14]).
  In the Name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Ghost. Amen.
 
“Now those men, when they had seen what a miracle Jesus had done, said: This is of a Truth THE Prophet, that is to come into the world” (John 6:14).

Notice that they do not call Christ A Prophet, such as Elias, or Eliseus, or Isaias, but rather THE Prophet.  This means a specific Prophet, namely, THE Prophet to Whom  God the Holy Ghost, through the pen of His inspired writer, Moses, referred in these words:  “The Lord thy God will raise up to thee a PROPHET of thy nation and of thy brethren like unto Me: Him thou shalt hear” (Deuteronomy 18:15).  This Prophet is none other than Jesus Christ, the Word made Flesh, the Redeemer of mankind.

By designating Christ as THE Prophet, the people expressed their belief that Jesus Christ IS THE promised Messias of the Old Testament Prophets.  In other words, THE Prophet is THE Messias.  Those people probably had in mind the Prophecy of Isaias about THE Messias (Isaias 9:6-7)?

These two verses of Isaias explain the next verse in today’s Gospel text:  “Jesus therefore, when He knew that they would come to take Him by force, and make Him king, fled again into the mountain, Himself alone.” (John 6:15).

Today, by the Most Holy Will and Grace of God, Catholics believe it “is of a Truth” that Jesus Christ is THE Prophet, THE Messias, and THE Redeemer.  But, unlike the many millions of others who think they are still “Catholics”, REAL Catholics, who are faithful to the Authentic Apostolic Trradiltion, some of whom, to distinguish themselves from the pseudo-Catholics who attend the apostate and heretical pseudo-catholic church, call themselves “Traditional” Catholics, still believe “THE absolute unchangeable ancient authentic Apostolic Tradition”  “is of a Truth”.

This explains the obvious, namely, that because REAL Catholics, a.k.a. “Traditional” Catholics, still believe in “THE absolute unchangeable Ancient Authentic Apostolic Tradition”, REAL Catholics, a.k.a. “Traditional” Catholics, logically reject the apostate and heretical pseudo-catholic church, a.k.a. the apostate and heretical Satanic Synod Vatican 2 pseudo-catholic church, and also its automatically excommunicated apostate and heretical Satanic Synod Vatican 2 pseudo-catholic church per se illegal and invalid popes, with all of their per se illegal, invalid, and anti-Catholic changes to THE unchangeable, immutable, absolute, Ancient Holy Catholic Faith, Mass, and Sacraments.

In other words, REAL Catholics, a.k.a. “Traditional” Catholics, totally accept “THE unchangeable, immutable, absolute, authentic, Ancient Authentic Apostolic Tradition” and reject any and all of the changes to it because such attempted changes are all automatically null and void.

The contents web page of this web site has many links to web pages on this web site which prove each of the above statements.

THE bottom line is that a person who does not accept and believe “THE unchangeable, immutable, absolute, authentic, Ancient Authentic Apostolic Tradition”  - by definition - is not really a Catholic.

Part of “THE unchangeable, immutable, absolute, authentic, Ancient Authentic Apostolic Tradition” includes the early History of the Catholic Church.  This history takes on a greater significance when one recognizes the principle of “historical precedent” in ecclesiastical matters, including Church Law.  This fact explains in part why Archbishop Martin John Spalding [b. at Bardstown, Kentucky on Wednesday, May 23, 1810 A.D. - d. at Baltimore, Maryland on Wednesday, February 7, 1872 A.D.], the 7th Catholic Archbishop of Baltimore, Maryland wrote how the REWRITING of: “Church History has been a grand conspiracy against the Truth” (A General History of the Catholic Church, Introduction, Volume I, p. xiii; emphasis added)!  And this was back in 1865!  This “grand conspiracy” is not just against Catholic Church History, but against the entire deposit of “THE unchangeable, immutable, absolute, authentic, Ancient Authentic Apostolic Tradition”!

This “grand conspiracy” has been going on even BEFORE the days of the “Forged Decretals”, a.k.a. the Pseudo-Isidorian Decretals, of 845 A.D., not to mention most of the other 70 plus interpolations, falsehoods, lies, and other forged documents!

This "grand conspiracy" against THE Truth has been used to promote the agenda of various evil people who have infiltrated the Catholic Church!

For those of you who have ever wondered HOW the automatically excommunicated apostate and heretical Satanic Synod Vatican 2 pseudo-catholic church’s illegal and invalid popes of the notorious apostate and heretical Satanic Synod Vatican 2 pseudo-catholic church  thought they could get away with changing THE unchangeable, immutable, absolute, authentic, Ancient Catholic Faith, Mass, and Sacraments, here is the answer!

This grand conspiracy against the Truth explains WHY THE “NEW Mass”, THE Novus Ordo Rite, a.k.a. THE Novus Ordo Missae  -  is NOT an English translation of the original Latin of pre 1944 A.D. Missals!

On the contrary, THE “NEW Mass”, THE Novus Ordo Rite, a.k.a. THENovus Ordo Missae    IS an updated, modernized, synthesized 16th Century PROTESTANT anti-mass empty ceremony which worships the Devil, having been invented in Hell by Lucifer!

This is not Our "opinion", but is based upon  THE  Prophecy of Jesus Christ for all faithful Catholics which He gave to Marie-Julie Jahenny on Saturday, November 27, 1902.  In His Prophecies, Jesus Christ, the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity, Eternal God, Prophecized the following which gives all faithful Catholics this warning of a NEW anti-catholic, Satanic liturgy for the Mass which one day would actually be used:

“I give you a warning. The disciples who are NOT of My Gospel are now working hard to remake according to their ideas, and under the influence of the enemy of souls [Satan]a Mass that contains words which are odious in My Sight.  When the fatal hour arrives where the faith of My Priests are put to the test,  it will be these [Satanic] texts that will be celebrated,  in this second period.”

“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. Many of My holy Priests will refuse this book [N.B. Most of these Priests have now died due to old age.], sealed with the words of the abyss [i.e. Hell]. Unfortunately, amongst them are those [N.B. Today almost all "priests" have accepted it. ] who will accept it.”

On Tuesday, May 10, 1904, the Blessed Virgin Mary gave the following prophecy to Marie-Julie Jahenny in which Our Lady described THE  NEW Clergy,  and their NEW 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.”

Also on Tuesday, May 10, 1904, the Blessed Virgin Mary gave another prophecy to Marie-Julie Jahenny in which Our Lady prophecized the “dispersion of the pastors” by the church herself and that the true Pastors would be replaced by fakes formed by Hell:

“...NEW preachers of NEW sacraments, NEW temples, NEW baptisms, NEW confraternities.”
History sadly records that these prophecies of Jesus Christ and of the Blessed Virgin Mary were fulfilled by the apostate and heretical Satanic Synod Vatican 2 pseudo-catholic church’s illegal and invalid  so-called bishops and priest-experts, many of whom were nothing more than Communists, Freemasons, Modernists, Satanists, and other evil infiltrators who were, in effect, Roman-Collared Gangsters!

Today this  grand conspiracy against the Truth  has deliberately kept most Catholics ignorant of what they should have known and believed in order to save their immortal souls!  Such ignorance is not bliss, but fosters THE cancer of confusion!

This is why today Catholics must pray to God the Holy Ghost for His guidance as they search for “THE unchangeable, immutable, absolute, authentic Apostolic Tradition” which comes only from Christ through His Apostles, for Christ:  is of a Truth THE Prophet, that is to come into the world.” (John 6:14).

 

Resolutions


The Speaker and the Hearers
The Writer and the Readers


It can neither profit me, the speaker, to speak, nor you, the hearers, to hear, unless we comply with the things which are spoken, ...so let us not limit the display of our zeal to hearing only, but let us observe what is said in our deeds. For it is indeed a good thing to spend time continually in hearing the Divine oracles: but this good thing becomes useless when the benefit to be derived from hearing is not linked with it.”   (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. Sermon on Romans 12:20; emphasis added.)


Let us now review our resolutions:

For our resolutions, let all of us, by the Grace of God, firmly resolve to pray for the Grace of Final Perseverance in THE unchangeable, immutable, absolute, authentic REAL Catholic Church” - for ourselves and all of our family members - which Church IS THE one and only Church which has preserved THE unchangeable, immutable, absolute, authentic, Ancient Authentic Apostolic Tradition”!


Let each of us humbly thank God for His many Blessings and Graces.

Let each of us pray to Jesus Christ, Eternal God, THE Just Judge, to immediately clean house, by converting both all of the ignorant people, and all of the evil people, in the apostate and heretical Satanic Synod Vatican 2 pseudo-catholic church.

Because We prefer to err on the side of Mercy, and not on the side of Justice, it our Hope and Prayer that by calling all of them before the Throne of the Divine Mercy of the King of Mercy, all REAL Catholics, a.k.a. “Traditional” Catholics, around the world may see all of the Sauls converted into Pauls!  We humbly and prayerfully ask all of you to please join with Us in helping to make this a reality!

Please remember this basic Truth:  “Since, therefore, the sanctification of man is in the power of God Who sanctifies, it is not for man to decide what things should be used for his sanctification, but this should be 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, Body).

Therefore, pray for the Graces necessary to keep the REAL Catholic, a.k.a. “Traditional” Catholic, Faith and continue to totally reject the heresies of the automatically excommunicated apostate and heretical  clergy of the apostate and heretical Satanic Synod Vatican 2 pseudo-catholic church, and all of their illegal and invalid never-ending changes to the REAL Catholic Faith, Mass, and Sacraments of the One, Holy, Catholic, Apostolic Church which recognizes that God the Son, the Incarnate Word of God, Jesus Christ, really and truly “is of a Truth THE Prophet, that is to come into the world.”  (GOSPEL of today’s Mass [John 6:14]).

The Memorare
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help or sought thy intercession, was left unaided. Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my Mother. To thee do I come; before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me. Amen.
