Epistle for
The Feast Day of Christ the King
Colossians 1:12-20.

The Epistle appointed to be read during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass today is taken from Saint Paul's Epistle to the Colossians, Chapter 1, Verses 12-20.

Brethren:

We give thanks to God the Father, Who hath made us worthy to be partakers of the lot of the Saints in light:  Who 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 through His blood, the remission of sins.

Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature.  For in Him were all things created in Heaven and on earth, visible and invisible, whether Thrones, or Dominations, or Principalities, or Powers.  All things were created by Him and in Him.

And He is before all, and by Him all things consist.  And He [N.B.: Christ - not Saint Peter] is the HEAD of the [Mystical] Body, the Church, Who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things He [N.B.: Christ - not Saint Peter] may hold the PRIMACY [of Ecclesiastical Power, Ecclesiastical Authority, and Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction].

Because in Him  [N.B.Christ - not Saint Peter], it hath well pleased the Father, that all fullness should dwell.  And through Him [N.B.Christ - not Saint Peter]  to reconcile all things unto Himself, making peace through the blood of His  [N.B.: Christ - not Saint Peter]  Cross, both as to the things that are on earth, and the things that are in Heaven.


Gospel for
The Feast Day of Christ the King
John 18:33-37.

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 18, Verses 33-37.

At that time, Pilate said to Jesus:

Art Thou the King of the Jews?
Jesus answered:
Sayest thou this thing of thyself, or have others told it thee of Me?
Pilate answered:
Am I a Jew?  Thy own nation, and the chief priests, have delivered Thee up to me:  what hast Thou done?
Jesus answered:
My Kingdom is not of this world.  If My Kingdom were of this world, My servants would certainly strive that I should not be delivered to the Jews:  but now My Kingdom is not from hence.
Pilate therefore said to Him:
Art Thou a King then?
Jesus answered:
Thou sayest that I am a King.  For this was I born, and for this came I into the world; that I should give testimony to the Truth.  Every one that is of the Truth, heareth My voice.
Thus far are the words of today’s Holy Gospel.
Please be seated.


“Pilate therefore said to Him:  Art Thou a King then?  Jesus answered: Thou sayest that I am a King.  For this was I born, and for this came I into the world; that I should give testimony to the Truth.” (GOSPEL, John 18:37.)

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

 
Did you know that not all of the prophecies in the Bible have been fulfilled?

For example, Chapter 17 of the Apocalypse makes mention “of the great harlot” (Apocalypse 17:1) called “Babylon”  (Apocalypse 17:5) who sits on the city of the 7 hills (Apocalypse 17:9) from where anti-Christ and its 10 world leaders “shall fight with the Lamb, and the Lamb shall overcome them, because He is Lord of lords, and King of kings, and they that are with Him are called, and elect, and faithful.” (Apocalypse 17:14.)

What is “the great city” of Apocalypse Chapter16, Verse 19 and Chapter 17, Verse18 which Saint John the Apostle identifies as “Babylon” in Apocalypse 16:19 and which he also calls “the great harlot” in Apocalypse 17:1 and 19:2 and also the “seven mountains”, which are actually the 7 hills of 17:9 of “the great city”?

Saint Peter the Apostle provides part of the answer in chapter 5, verse 13 of his First Epistle which Scripture scholars claim he wrote at Rome which city he figuratively calls “Babylon” where he writes in part:

“The Church that is in Babylon... saluteth you.” (1 Peter 5:13.)
In other words, Church History does NOT record Saint Peter ever being in the actual ancient city called Babylon which is not in Italy but instead is on the left bank of the Euphrates River, just a few miles south of Baghdad, Iraq. Babylon was excavated between 1899 A.D. and 1917 A.D. by Koldewey.

But the Apocalypse itself provides the remaining part of the answer because the Babylon of the Apocalypse is the city of the “seven mountains” 17:9, by which 7 hills are understood.

But geographically, this would have to be the city of Rome which is situated on 7 hills.  Why is it not ancient Babylon?  It is not ancient Babylon because, geographically, the ancient city called Babylon, is NOT situated on even one mountain and NOT even on one hill because the ancient city of Babylon sits on a broad, very flat, alluvial plain formed by river silt - in other words, the ancient city of Babylon sits on silted FLAT land just like the city of New Orleans which, in all of Our many visits there to offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Traditional Catholic Mass, and to Administer the Sacraments, and to Preach, We can personally attest that the city of New Orleans does not have either lofty mountains or high hills, and is actually subject to flooding because it is below sea level!

But this prophecy, as well as some others in the Apocalypse, will be fulfilled when the Lamb of God “shall overcome them, because He is Lord of lords, and King of kings”.

Why?

Because “all things” are subjected “under” the “feet” of Jesus Christ, Who is the “Lord of lords, and King of kings” because God the Father

“hath made Him head over all the church, which is His [Mystical] Body.” (Ephesians 1:22-23.)
God the Holy Ghost, through the pen of Saint Paul, also writes in another Epistle, which is in the Epistle for the Mass today, how Jesus Christ, the “King of kings and Lord of lords”:
“And He is before all, and by Him all things consist.  And He [N.B.: Christ - not Saint Peter] is the HEAD of the [Mystical] Body, the Church, Who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things He [N.B.: Christ - not Saint Peter] may hold the PRIMACY [of Ecclesiastical Power, Ecclesiastical Authority, and Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction].”

“Because in Him  [N.B.Christ - not Saint Peter], it hath well pleased the Father, that all fullness should dwell.  And through Him [N.B.Christ - not Saint Peter]  to reconcile all things unto Himself, making peace through the blood of His  [N.B.: Christ - not Saint Peter]  Cross, both as to the things that are on earth, and the things that are in Heaven.” (Colossians 1:18-20).

So, the primary reasons for this prophecized victory are due to the character of the Lamb of God which includes these facts:
1) That the Lamb of God, Jesus Christ, is “the firstborn from the dead”;

2) That Jesus Christ “is the Head of the [Mystical] Body, [which is] the Church”;

3) That Jesus Christ, Who is the “Lord of lords, and King of kings” holds “the PRIMACY” in virtue of being the actual “Head of the [Mystical] Body, [which is] the Church”.

N.B.  God the Holy Ghost, through the pen of His inspired writer, the Apostle, choose to use the word PRIMACY.

Not only that, but God the Holy Ghost specifically says, in regard to this PRIMACY  "that in ALL things HE [Christ] may hold the PRIMACY".

For which reasons does Jesus Christ, the Eternal Divine Logos - Word of God - hold the PRIMACY?

Jesus Christ - and no one else, NOT even Saint Peter - EXCLUSIVELY holds the PRIMACY:

1)  Because in Him - in Jesus Christ - NOT in anyone else, NOT in Saint Peter, NOT in Saint Paul, NOT in anyone else, it hath well pleased the Father, that all fullness should dwell.

2) Because it is ONLY through Him - ONLY through/by Jesus Christ - NOT through or by Saint Peter, NOT through or by Saint PaulNOT through or by anyone else - that the task to reconcile all things unto Himself has been given, because it is ONLY Jesus Christ Who is the Savior - NOT Saint Peter, NOT Saint Paul, NOT anyone else!

This means that the Savior is NOT anyone else - the Savior is NOT Saint Peter, the Savior is NOT Saint Paul, the Savior is NOT anyone else - EXCLUSIVELY and ONLY is Jesus Christ, the Second Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, the ONE and ONLY Savior of the human race.

3)  Because it was ONLY by Jesus Christ making peace through the Blood of His cross, i.e. ONLY by the Divine Redeemer, Jesus Christ, was peace able to be made on behalf of the human race with God through His Infinite Act of Redemption.

Because God, the Infinite, had been offended by Original Sin, and because the Gates of Heaven had been slammed shut by Original Sin, and because only Infinite God has the ability to appease Infinite God, it was necessary that the Redeemer be Infinite God.  Clearly, this requirement of a Divine Redeemer automatically excludes all finite creatures, including Saint Peter.

4)  Because only Jesus Christ, as Infinite God, Infinite Redeemer, could restore, by His act of Divine Victimhood, the things that are on earth.

5)  Because only Jesus Christ, as Infinite God, Infinite Redeemer could restore, by His act of Divine Victimhood, the things that are in Heaven, and thus reopen the Gates of Heaven and heal the breach between Infinite God and finite mankind that had been caused by Original Sin.

Therefore, this is what holding the PRIMACY actually means in plain English!

In other words, the PRIMACY  can only be held - by its very nature - by its very ontological essence (that which makes a thing to be what it is) and by its very metaphysical essence (that which the ontological essence does - the act of the ontological essence [which obfuscates what is call potentia - possible or potential acts which are acts which may or may not happen or exist in actu - in act - in the real world]) - by Infinite God.

The bottom line here is that NO FINITE CREATURE, no matter how Holy, by both the ontological essence and by the metaphysical essence of the finiteness of the creature - in this case a human being, e.g. Saint Peter, Saint Paul, etc. - has the ability, by this limited, finite nature, to hold the PRIMACY.

IF this seems to be an insufficient reason, then one is required to also acknowledge the fact that the Redeemer is required to be without any stain of sin - and this includes Original Sin.

Yet this requirement does not apply to Saint Peter because Saint Peter was born with Original Sin on his Soul, just like all other human beings (except the Blessed Virgin Mary because of her Holy Office of Theotokos - Mother of God - in virtue of her Immaculate Conception).

We repeat: Saint Peter was born with Original Sin on his Soul.

Therefore, BECAUSE Saint Peter was born with Original Sin on his Soul, it is impossible for Saint Peter, or Saint Paul, or whoever else, to hold the PRIMACY because Saint Peter never was, and never could be, THE Infinite Redeemer whose Infinite Sacrifice on the Cross redeemed the entire human race.

Put another way, Saint Peter is NOT the Lamb of God Who takest away the sins of the world.

On the contrary, under the inspiration of God the Holy Ghost, Saint John the Baptist said of Christ - NOT of Saint Peter:

Behold the Lamb of God, behold Him who taketh away the sin of the world.” (John 1:29.)
But is not Saint Peter the “rock” and hence holds the Primacy?

On the contrary,
 
    “And the ROCK was Christ.” (1 Corinthians 10:4; emphasis added.)

Likewise, the Doctor of Grace, whose teachings have been accepted by the Catholic Church, teaches:

The Rock (Petra) made Peter true, for the Rock was Christ.” (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, Sermon XCVII [97], [CXLVII (147). Benedictine Edition.], On the Same Words of the Gospel of John XXI. 15, “Simon, Son of John, Lovest Thou Me More than These?” etc.; emphasis added.)

“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, Bishop of Hippo Regia, Father and Doctor of the Catholic Church, “Sermon XXVI [26], [LXXVI. [76] Bendectine], Again on Matthew XIV [14]. 25: Of the Lord Walking on the Waves of the Sea, and of Peter Tottering”, paragraph # 2; emphasis added.)

Additional Source # 1:

“The rule of Biblical interpretation imposed upon us is this:  that the Scriptures are NOT to be interpreted contrary to the unanimous consent of the Fathers [of the Church].”

[Pope Pius IV, Giovanni Angelo De Medici (Friday, December 25, 1559 - Thursday, December 9, 1565), Papal Bulla “Injunctum Nobis”, a.k.a. “The Profession of Faith”, Friday, November 13, 1564. This Papal Bulla was issued in accordance with the Council of Trent, Session Twenty Five, Wednesday, December 4, 1563, in its Decree “De Reformatione” - Decree on Reformation, Chapter 2, By whom individually the Decrees of the Council are to be solemnly received; and by whom a Profession of Faith is to be made - which all Popes and other Prelates, Priests, Deacons and Sub-Deacons take at their Ordination, Consecration, etc.].
“It is doubtful whether any instance of that unanimous consent is to be found.  But this failing, the rule seems to lay down for us the law of following, in their interpretation of Scripture, the major number of the Fathers, that might seem to approach unanimity. “

“Accepting this rule, we are compelled to abandon the usual modern exposition of the words: ‘Upon this rock I will build My Church’.  We find five different interpretations of the word ‘rock’.”

“First... that the Church was built on Peter; and this interpretation is followed by seventeen Fathers [of the Church].”

“The second interpretations understands...that the Church was built on all the Apostles, whom Peter represented by virtue of the primacy...this opinion is followed by eight Fathers [of the Church].”

“The third interpretation...the words...are to be understood of the Faith which Peter had professed-that this Faith, this Profession of Faith, by which we believe Christ to be the Son of the living God, is the everlasting and immovable foundation of the Church.  This interpretation is the weightiest of all, since it is followed by forty-four Fathers and Doctors [of the Church].”   [N.B.: Research has discovered that at least some, and perhaps all, of these very same 44 Fathers and Doctors, also hold another position, namely the following position which is held by the sixteen  Fathers and Doctors [of the Church].

“The fourth interpretation declares that the words...are to be understood of that ‘rock’ which Peter had confessed, that is, Christ - that the Church was built upon Christ.  This interpretation is followed by sixteen  Fathers and Doctors [of the Church].”

“The fifth interpretation of the Fathers understands...the Faithful themselves, who, believing Christ to be the Son of God, are constituted living stones out of which the Church is built...Unless it is certain that by the ‘rock’ is to be understood the apostle Peter in his own person, and NOT in his capacity as the Chief Apostle speaking for them all, the word supplies no argument whatever, I do not say in proof of ‘papal infallibility’, but even in support of the ‘primacy of the Bishop of Rome’.”

“If we are bound to follow the majority of the Fathers in this thing, then we are bound to hold for certain that by ‘the rock’ should be understood the ‘Faith professed by Peter’, not Peter professing the Faith.”  (Roman Catholic Metropolitan Archbishop Peter Richard Kenrick [b. in Dublin, Ireland, Sunday, August 17, 1806 A.D. - d. apparently in Saint Louis, Missouri, Friday, March 3, 1893 A.D.], Metropolitan Archbishop of Saint Louis, Missouri, U.S.A., public SPEECH of Wednesday, June 8, 1870 A.D., to the Cardinals and Bishops of the Roman Catholic Church at  Council Vatican I, III, 2; emphasis added.)

On the contrary, the historical fact, as proven above, that there is not ONE, but FIVE, different interpretation by the Fathers of the Catholic Church of Matthew 16:18, clearly does NOT meet, in any way, the "Infallible" Papal requirement of only ONE, UNANIMOUS, interpretation of ALL of the Fathers which is REQUIRED by Pope Pius IV, Giovanni Angelo De Medici (Friday, December 25, 1559 - Thursday, December 9, 1565), Papal Bulla “Injunctum Nobis”, a.k.a. “The Profession of Faith”, Friday, November 13, 1564.)

Therefore, “Accepting this rule, we are compelled to abandon the usual modern exposition of the words: ‘Upon this rock I will build My Church’.”

What is “the usual modern exposition of the words: ‘Upon this rock I will build My Church’.”?  That Jesus Christ made the Apostle Saint Peter the first Pope.

However, the five different interpretations of Matthew 16:18 by the Fathers of the Church simply means that, in reality, there really is no such a thing as a Pope. Therefore, historically, there have not been any popes of the Roman Catholic Church!

Commentary:

This does NOT mean that Jesus Christ did NOT institute His Church on the Rock of Himself, nor that His Church is somehow NOT the Catholic Church.  What the above simply means is that the Bishop of Rome is the Bishop of Rome and NOT the Pope.

Jesus Christ did institute what is historically identified as the Catholic Church.  But Jesus Christ did not institute the papacy, per se, because Jesus Christ, Who holds the PRIMACY, is the ROCK, and is also the one and only Universal Bishop or Pope!



Additional Source # 2:

Jesus Christ is the One and Only “Universal Bishop” because only Jesus Christ holds the “Primacy” because:

“He [Christ] is the head of the [Mystical] Body, the [Catholic] Church, Who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things [only] He [Christ] may hold the [Papal] Primacy because [only] in Him [Christ], it hath well pleased [God] the Father, that all fullness should dwell.” (Colossians 1:18-19.)
However, the Bishop of Rome, Celestine I [Saturday, September 10, 422 - Tuesday, July 27, 432], attempted to impose upon the Council of Carthage [424 A.D.], a Synod of African Bishops, the Canons of the Synod of Sardica [343 A.D.] as being instead the Canons of the First General [Œcumenical] Council of Nicaea [formally opened on Saturday, June 20, 325 A.D.] in order to use the First General Council of Nicaea as the basis for his pretended claim that he had the right of receiving appeals by which act Bishop Celestine I attempted to make himself the so-called “Universal Bishop” (i.e. “Pope”).

The Council of Carthage in 424 A.D. rejected the false claim of Bishop Celestine I in their letter to him entitled “Optaremus”.

In 588 A.D., the Catholic Church in the East also rejected the so-called “Universal Bishop” title of the Bishop of Rome, but, unlike the Council of Carthage in 424 A.D.l, the East made this matter worse because during the Council of Constantinople in 588 A.D., it attempted to correct this injustice by going along with the title “Universal Bishop” which Patriarch John IV began to use.

Patriarch John IV, Nesteutes, a.k.a. John the Faster [b. Constantinople, 582 A.D. - d. Constantinople, Wednesday, September 2, 595 A.D.], of Constantinople, called himself the “Universal Bishop”.

Ironically, several years later, the Bishop of Rome, Saint Gregory I (the Great) [Friday, September 3, 590 - Monday, March 12, 604] condemned Patriarch John IV for using this title of “Universal Bishop”!

The Bishop of Rome, Saint Gregory I, wrote:

Whosoever calls himself, or desires to be called, ‘Universal Bishop’, is, in his elation, the Precursor of anti-Christ, because he proudly puts himself above all others.”  (The Bishop of Rome, Saint Gregory I, the Great, [Friday, September 3, 590 - Monday, March 12, 604], “Book VII [7], Epistle XXXIII [33], to Mauricius Augustus [the Emperor Maurice]”; emphasis added.)

“What wilt thou say to Christ, Who is the Head of the Universal Church, in the scrutiny of the Last Judgment, having attempted to put all His [i.e Christ’s] members under thyself by the appellation of ‘Universal’?” (The Bishop of Rome, Saint Gregory I, the Great, “Epistle XVIII [18], to John, Bishop of Constantinople”; emphasis added.)

So, historically, the Bishop of Rome, Saint Gregory I, the Great, condemned the title “Universal Bishop”!

However, this is exactly how the “Pope” functionsThePopefunctions as the condemned Universal Bishop”!   But ONLY “[Christ] may hold the [Papal] Primacy”!

Obviously, the Bishop of Rome, Saint Gregory I, the Great, read Colossians 1:18-20, and also
1 Corinthians 10:4.



Additional Source # 3:

Finallly, research discovered that the Bishop of Rome, Nicholas I [Wednesday, April 24, 858 - Sunday, November 13, 867], used a large book of forged documents, written in about 845 A.D., which is historically known as the “Forged Decretals”, a.k.a. the “False Decretals”, a.k.a. the “Pseudo-Isidorian Decretals”, in which the Forger wrote in an atrocious Latin, filled with mis-spelled words, incorrect grammatical constructions, etc., who was trying to protect Bishops against their Metropolitans by an enormous extension of the power of the Bishop of Rome, surreptitiously made himself what is known as a “Universal Bishop”, which is exactly the way the “Pope” functions, in his cautiously worded, and somewhat cleverly disguised, at least at first read,  “Letter to Archbishop Hincmar of Rheims and the Bishops of the Western Empire”, of Tuesday, October 23, 863 A.D.  Thus the unofficial birthday of the Papacy based upon fake documents that never existed except in the above book of many forgeries!

Thus the actual historical source of the Office of the Roman Papacy: the “Forged Decretals”, a.k.a. the “False Decretals”, a.k.a. the “Pseudo-Isidorian Decretals”!


To Continue:

Therefore, Jesus Christ, both by His Infinite Divine nature, and also by His Infinite Divine Office, has supreme, universal, dominion and power, not only universally over His entire Church, but also over everyone and everything.  All of the powers of earth and of Hell are subject to His control - NOT the control of Saint Peter!

The secondary reason for this prophecized victory is due to the character of the followers of the “Lord of lords, and King of kings” because “they that are with Him are called, and elect, and faithful.”

What does this mean?

The followers of the “King of kings and Lord of lords” are soldiers of Jesus Christ who have received the Holy Sacrament of Confirmation and are mustered out to join their Commander-in-Chief in this warfare against anti-Christ and its billions of evil followers - about 90% to 95% of the entire population of the entire earth!

The victory of this army is described in Apocalypse 19:11-16:

“And I saw heaven [i.e. the Catholic Church] opened, and behold a white horse; and He [Jesus Christ] that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and with justice doth He judge and fight.  And His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on His head were many diadems, and He had a name written, which no man knoweth but Himself.  And He was clothed with a garment sprinkled with blood; and His Name is called, THE WORD OF GOD.  And the armies that are in heaven [i.e. the soldiers of Jesus Christ] followed Him on white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.  And out of His mouth proceedeth a sharp two edged sword; that with it He may strike the nations.  And He [Jesus Christ - NOT Saint Peter] shall rule them with a rod of iron; and He treadeth the winepress of the fierceness of the Wrath of God the Almighty. And He hath on His garment, and on His thigh written:  KING OF KINGS, AND LORD OF LORDS.” (Apocalypse 19:11-16; emphasis added.)
Now this is the very same King of kings, and Lord of lords, Whose eyes are “as a flame of fire”, that you meet in today’s Gospel, but Who hides His Kingship from Pilate because He must become the Divine Redeemer.  This lack of exterior Kingly vesture explains why:
“Pilate therefore said to Him:  Art Thou a king then?  Jesus answered: Thou sayest that I am a King.  For this was I born.” (John 18:37.)
Pilate questioned Christ to try to find out if He is the long expected Messias, the King of the Jews.  But Christ answered Pilate’s question with another question, not for the purpose of evading Pilate’s question, but rather to require Pilate to consider what he was doing:
“Sayest thou this thing of thyself” (John 18:34)
from a suspicion you have,
“or have others told it thee of Me?”,
i.e. do you ask this question only to oblige them?

You may remember how Pilate:

“went out again to the Jews, and saith to them:  I find no cause in Him” (John 18:38)  and then had Christ scourged only to discover this was not enough because the Jews still demanded that Christ be crucified “because He made himself the Son of God.” (John 19:7.)
After Pilate again questioned Christ and then told the Jews that he still wanted to free Christ, and the Jews again:
“cried out: ... crucify Him.  Pilate saith to them:  Shall I crucify your King?  The chief priests answered:  We have no king but Caesar.”  (John 19:15).  Thus do those whose king was Caesar burn in Hell for all eternity!
Finally, when Christ was crucified, perhaps it was to mock the Jews for rejecting their King, that:
“Pilate wrote a title also, and he put it upon the Cross.  And the writing was:  JESUS OF NAZARETH, THE KING OF THE JEWS... written in Hebrew, in Greek, and in Latin.” (John 19:19-20.)
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 your resolutions, by the Grace of God, beginning right now, firmly resolve to get into the habit of giving thanks and expressing gratitude to God, Our Infinite Creator, for having not only created YOU, but redeemed YOU to make it possible for YOU to one day enter into the eternal joys of Heaven.

Also, frequently thank the good God for all of the many Graces and Blessings He has given to you and to your family, including the Grace of your Holy, unchangeable, Traditional Catholic Faith which includes today’s glorious Feast Day of Christ the King by which the Holy, unchangeable, Traditional Catholic Church anticipates the total victory of Jesus Christ, the Divine “King of kings and Lord of lords”, over the Beast, anti-Christ, the puppet of Satan, and all of the evil people and the almost innumerable agents of Satan.

Thank the “King of kings and Lord of lords” today for what He will do “tomorrow”, namely to “cast alive into the pool of fire, burning with brimstone” (Apocalypse 19:20) that false king, that false lord, that false christ, called anti-Christ, and its false prophet.

“And the rest [i.e. about 90% to 95% of the entire human race, which consists of all of the evil people and the almost innumerable agents of Satan] were slain by the sword of Him that sitteth upon the horse, which proceedeth out of His mouth.” (Apocalypse 19:21).

In this way about 90% to 95% of the entire population of the entire earth will be destroyed and cast into the eternal, extremely fierce fires of Hell!  Thus, the Divine Wrath of Almighty God!

“Amen.  Come, Lord Jesus.” (Apocalypse 22:20.)

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

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.
