THE WOLVES ARE IN CHARGE--VATICAN CALLS FOR WORLD BANK


M_OurLadyOfLaSalette
The enemies of Christ's Church on earth have infiltrated to the highest levels. And now the enemy himself speaks from within. The gates of hell will put up a supreme challenge that will confuse even the elect if that be possible, but hell will not prevail in the end. Just as Christ suffered His Passion so His Church must do the same in these last days. We must not flee his side but instead ride out this tremendous storm in the Arc --which is His Church. We must place the Blood of the lamb on our doorposts by eating the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ. Finally, we must consecrate ourselves and pray heartily to the Blessed Virgin Mary who is the woman clothed with the sun and who will crush the head of the serpent. As Fr John Hardon, S.J., used to say, "Ordinary Catholics will not survive this age". I hasten to add those who have placed themselves outside the Catholic Church will suffer the worst confusion. Immaculate Heart of Mary pray for your children and the Church.

VATICAN CITY, Oct 24 (Reuters) - - The Vatican called on Monday for the establishment of a "global public authority" and a "central world bank" to rule over financial institutions that have become outdated and often ineffective in dealing fairly with crises.

The document from the Vatican's Justice and Peace department should please the "Occupy Wall Street" demonstrators and similar movements around the world who have protested against the economic downturn.

"Towards Reforming the International Financial and Monetary Systems in the Context of a Global Public Authority," was at times very specific, calling, for example, for taxation measures on financial transactions.

"The economic and financial crisis which the world is going through calls everyone, individuals and peoples, to examine in depth the principles and the cultural and moral values at the basis of social coexistence," it said.

It condemned what it called "the idolatry of the market" as well as a "neo-liberal thinking" that it said looked exclusively at technical solutions to economic problems.

"In fact, the crisis has revealed behaviours like selfishness, collective greed and hoarding of goods on a great scale," it said, adding that world economics needed an "ethic of solidarity" among rich and poor nations.

"If no solutions are found to the various forms of injustice, the negative effects that will follow on the social, political and economic level will be destined to create a climate of growing hostility and even violence, and ultimately undermine the very foundations of democratic institutions, even the ones considered most solid," it said.

It called for the establishment of "a supranational authority" with worldwide scope and "universal jurisdiction" to guide economic policies and decisions.

Such an authority should start with the United Nations as its reference point but later become independent and be endowed with the power to see to it that developed countries were not allowed to wield "excessive power over the weaker countries".

U.S. PROTESTANTS MORE LOYAL TO TOOTHPASTE AND TOILET PAPER BRANDS THAN CHURCH

tj200804222204-1
If one rejects the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ then what difference does it make what Protestant church or denomination one attends? As a Catholic, the few times I have stepped inside a Protestant church in my lifetime it always felt strange --I instinctively wanted to genuflect but the Real Presence of Jesus Christ was nowhere to be found. It seems the majority of Catholics may agree with me since they do not share the view that faith is fungible...

From USAtoday: Some Americans are more loyal to their toothpaste or toilet paper than to their religious denomination, making those consumers more choosy about Charmin or Colgate than they are about church, according to a new survey.

According to a Phoenix-based research firm, 16% of Protestants say they would consider only one denomination, while 22% of them would use only one brand of toothpaste and 19% would use just one brand of bathroom tissue."

"The...findings seem to echo a large national survey conducted last year by the Pew Forum on Religion & Public Life, which found that
44% of Americans have switched from one faith, or one denomination, to another.

"Ellison detected a profound difference between Protestants and Catholics on the question of denominational loyalty: 60% of active Catholics said they would only consider attending a Roman Catholic congregation.

"It's not like there are 75 different Catholic denominations, where (if) they don't like the Southern Catholic Convention, they can go to the Progressive Catholic Convention," said Sellers, whose findings were based on a nationally representative online panel of 1,007 U.S. adults, including 471 respondents who attended a Christian congregation one or more times a month."

But take heart...

"The 16% figure for denominational loyalty was higher than consumers' loyalty to a particular brand of athletic shoe, department store, major appliance, light bulb and numerous other products, according to the study."

WHEN THE SON OF MAN COMES WILL HE FIND FAITH ON EARTH?

calories-in-salted-saltines-crackers-s
We have come so far from the truth--every so often we get a stark example of just how far the world has slid.

From the
telegraph: "Beatles songs as likely to explain Christianity as the Bible, says bishop"...

"The Rt Rev Nick Baines, Bishop of Croydon, has urged churches to use hits by bands such as U2 and the Beatles in their services.

"In a book backed by the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, he argues that pop music writers can convey deep theological concepts in a way that is more accessible to the younger generation.

"Hundreds of evangelical churches have already turned to guitar-based songs instead of traditional hymns, but the bishop suggests that clergy still need to be more creative in appealing to non-churchgoers.

"Artists highlighted for exploring Christian themes in their music include Eric Clapton, Bob Dylan and John Lennon, who famously claimed the Beatles were bigger than Jesus.

"For many people the language of the Bible has become inaccessible and yet pop song writers can make a connection with people because their language is fresh," he said.

"They are able to open our imagination to a way of thinking about God that we've become deaf to in church language."

THE LOSS OF CATHOLIC WEAPONS AGAINST EVIL HAVE ALLOWED ISLAM TO SPREAD ONCE AGAIN

our_lady_of_the_rosary_small
The feast of "Our Lady of the Rosary"** which is celebrated by the Catholic Church this week, was instituted to remember the Battle of Lepanto. Thanks to the recitation of the holy Rosary which has been called by many great saints "a weapon against evil", the forces of Islam which threatened to invade Europe were defeated on October 7, 1571. For more on the Battle of Lepanto go here.

Since 1571 Europe and much of the world have forgotten their history, the Rosary, and indeed the faith. Radical and adversarial Islam is once again marching with hostile forces that are multiplying demographically across Europe in lightning speed, while a sterile and abortion-obsessed Europe commits suicide as it bows helplessly before its indefatigable assailants. Crippled before its arch enemy, post-Christian Europe can only limp along before these monolithic forces of evil because of Europe's own perilous weakness of no longer being unified in its faith, beliefs and culture.

There are different types of evil that plague the world- the worst being moral or spiritual evil. It includes all those who reject God as He truly reveals HIMSELF--through his son Jesus Christ. Since the followers of Islam reject Jesus Christ as the only way to salvation the religion of Islam poses a grave spiritual evil to not only its followers but to the world.

But evil is always in the last analysis a privation of good. For example, night is a privation of the light of day, while vice is a privation of God's goodness. Moreover, evil

THE SUREST EASIEST SHORTEST WAY TO HEAVEN

Pope Pius X
“Holy Communion is the shortest way to Heaven. There are others, innocence for instance, but that is for little children; penance, but we are afraid of it; generous endurance of the trials of life, but when they approach us, we weep and pray to be delivered. Once for all, beloved children, the surest, easiest, shortest way is by the Holy Eucharist.” Pope Pius X

JESUS BUILT A CHURCH AND GAVE HIS PRIESTS THE POWER TO FORGIVE SIN

confession
One of the greatest objections that Luther and the reformers had with the Catholic Church and still have today, is that a Catholic priest can dare say that man's sins are forgiven. But to deny that Jesus could and did grant this power to His followers is tantamount to denying His grace, authority and even His divinity.

Jesus indeed came to ransom the human race and made a general atonement for all sins by His bloody death upon the cross. The price was paid and accepted by the all-just God. But the merits of the redeeming Blood were to be applied to the individual soul
through the Church which Christ established.

Jesus stated to the Apostle Peter:
"thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build My Church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give to thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatsoever thou shalt bind upon earth, it shall be bound also in heaven and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth, it shall be loosed also in heaven." (Matt., xvi. 18, 10)

Thus Jesus came to build a visible church--despite all those who want to do away with religion and the notion of "church" and simply be "spiritual".

WITHOUT THE BODY AND BLOOD OF JESUS SATAN SIFTS CHRISTIANS LIKE WHEAT

bodyandblood
For 1500 years those who called themselves Christians understood that Jesus did not abandon man in his quest for eternal life. Rather Jesus left His Church to guide and direct man, and left His Body and Blood as sustenance. But with the abandonment of the Church came the abandonment of the Eucharist. Without the Church and the Sacraments, Satan sifts modern day Christians like wheat making them one with the world.

According to the late Fr John Hardon S.J., only those who would profess the following are Christian--"No one else is":

"I believe in my heart and openly profess that the bread and wine placed upon the altar are, by the mystery of the sacred prayer and the words of the Redeemer, substantially changed into the true and life-giving flesh and blood of Jesus Christ our Lord, and that after the consecration, there is present the true body of Christ which was born of the Virgin and offered up for the salvation of the world, hung on the cross and now sits at the right hand of the Father, and that there is present the true blood of Christ which flowed from his side. They are present not only by means of a sign and of the efficacy of the Sacrament, but also in the very reality and truth of their nature and substance." Composed by St Gregory VII for the profession of the heretic Berengarius in 1079.

Fr Hardon recommended that the above be memorized along with the following by all:

"Surely the word of Christ which could make out of nothing that which did not exist, can change things already in existence into what they were not. For it is no less extraordinary to give things new natures than to change their natures." St Ambrose, Bishop of Milan.

MINNESOTA PROFESSOR PLEDGES TO DESECRATE THE EUCHARIST

pieta4-1
FROM The Catholic League: Paul Zachary Myers, a professor at the University of Minnesota Morris, has pledged to desecrate the Eucharist. He is responding to what happened recently at the University of Central Florida when a student walked out of Mass with the Host, holding it hostage for several days. Myers was angry at the Catholic League for criticizing the student. His post can be accessed from his faculty page on the university’s website.

Here is an excerpt of his July 8 post, “It’s a Frackin’ Cracker!”:

“Can anyone out there score me some consecrated communion wafers?” Myers continued by saying, “if any of you would be willing to do what it takes to get me some, or even one, and mail it to me, I’ll show you Read More...

EUCHARIST HELD HOSTAGE IN PLASTIC BAG BY UNIVERSITY STUDENT

A University of Central Florida student fled Mass with the Sacred Host and is holding Jesus hostage in a plastic bag demanding an apology for an attempt to physically stop him. Just another reason why communion in the hand and extraordinary Eucharistic Ministers MUST cease.

Excerpts from WFTV: "Church officials say UCF Student Senator Webster Cook was disruptive and disrespectful when he attended Mass held on campus Sunday June 29. It was during that Mass where Cook admits he obtained the Eucharist.

Cook claims he planned to consume it, but first wanted to show it to a fellow student senator he brought to Mass who was curious about the Catholic faith.

THE MOST CHALLLENGING BELIEF OF THE CHRISTIAN FAITH: THE EUCHARIST

massholysouls-1
"If it's a symbol, to hell with it." Flannery O'Connor

Why is it that so many Christian denominations have no problem with belief in the mystery of the Trinity yet fail in faith to accept the words of Jesus regarding the mystery of the Eucharist? It is by far the most challenging belief in Christianity and was so even in Christ's day.

As described in the gospel of St. John
"many of His disciples left Jesus when He told the multitude that they would have to eat His Flesh and drink His Blood to have eternal life. Christ wanted to make sure that His own apostles believed in the Real Presence. That is why He asked them if they too, wanted to leave Him." But it was Peter who gave the correct answer. "He told Jesus that the apostles also did not comprehend this mystery, but they relied on Christ's words because they believed that Jesus is the living God who can neither deceive or be deceived." Fr John A. Hardon, S.J. Catechism on the Real Presence.

Christianity needs the authority of Christ's Church because as demonstrated in the last 500 years-- left to itself the human mind goes wild in it's interpretation of God's word. This is seen in the fact that
"Martin Luther who had been a priest for fifteen years, broke with the Catholic Church on October 31, 1517. By the year 1600, there were over 200 Protestant interpretations of Christ's words, "this is my body ...this is my blood." ibid .

The wise words of the Saints prove the intense faith required to believe Jesus difficult words on the Eucharist:

St John Chrysostom warned the faithful about questioning the mysteries of the Eucharist:
"Let us submit to God in all things and not contradict him, even if what he says seems contrary to our reason and intellect; rather, let his words Read More...

ST CLARE, THE EUCHARIST AND THE FLEEING OF THE MUSLIMS

st_clare3
"Amen, Amen, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you do not have life within you" Jesus

Years ago a sweet lady from my church offered me a very large and beautiful statue of St Clare of Assisi after I named my daughter Clare. I gladly accepted not knowing much about St Clare at the time except that she had bravely driven vicious soldiers from her convent while carrying Jesus in the Eucharist. It wasn't until I recently read Frank M. Rega's book St Francis and the Conversion of the Muslims that I realized that the Saracen soldiers that St Clare drove off-- were actually Muslims.

Clare was a beautiful Italian noblewoman who founded an order of nuns called the "Poor Clares." She was converted upon hearing St. Francis of Assisi preach. Thereafter, she developed a great desire to live a poor humble life for Jesus. She ran away from home, and in a little chapel outside Assisi, gave herself to God. St. Francis cut off her hair and gave her a rough brown habit to wear tied with a plain cord around her waist.

In the year 1240, St Clare saved her sisters and her convent from plundering hordes of Saracen mercenaries through the miracle of the Eucharist. As the Saracens were placing ladders

THE ENORMITY OF SIN AND THE NECESSITY OF THE LAMB OF GOD


"We ought to immolate to God the daily sacrifices of our tears, the daily offerings of His Flesh and Blood. For this Victim peculiarly preserves the soul from eternal death, as it renews to us in a mystery the death of the Only-Begotten; Who, although being risen from the dead He dies no more and death shall have no more dominion over Him, yet while in Himself He lives immortal and incorruptible, for us is immolated again in this mystery of the sacred oblation. For it is His body that is there taken, His flesh that it is divided for the salvation of the people, His blood that is poured, not as before into the hands of unbelievers, but into the mouths of the faithful. Hence let us estimate the importance of this sacrifice for us, which for our absolution ever imitates the Passion of the only-begotten Son. For what Christian can doubt that at the very hour of the offering, at the words of the priest, the heavens are opened, the choirs of angels are present in that mystery of Jesus Christ, the lowest things are knit with the highest, the earthly things are united with the heavenly, the visible and the invisible are made one." Pope St. Gregory the Great (6th cent)

JESUS DEMANDS BELIEF IN HIS BODY AND BLOOD TO HAVE ETERNAL LIFE


Michael Voris is on fire with the faith and is making waves in Detroit and all around the nation. He is a graduate of Notre Dame and a former news anchor with CBS. He gave up his career in television to spread the One True Faith far and wide.

I am personally tired of hearing so many protestants claim that they have a personal relationship with Jesus while denying his words in the Gospel of John chapter 6. There is nothing closer or more personal than eating the flesh of the Son of God who fills us with His life so that we can live with Him eternally.

We need more modern day missionaries like Michael Voris and friends to re-convert Western Civilization and bring it back to Jesus Christ in the most personal way known to man.

POPE'S "CONTROVERSIAL" STATEMENT ON PROTESTANTISM REVEALS THE NECESSITY OF THE BODY AND BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST

EucharistTop-1

"Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except ye eat the flesh of the Son of man, and drink his blood, ye have no life in you.  Who so eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, hath eternal life; and I will raise him up at the last day.  For my flesh is meat indeed, and my blood is drink indeed.  He that eateth my flesh, and drinketh my blood, dwelleth in me, and I in him." John 6: 53-58

I have encountered more than a few Protestants in my life who erroneously believed that they receive the actual Body and Blood of Jesus at their communion service. They were genuinely surprised to find that their church rejected the belief in the true presence of Jesus and believed instead that He was only present "spiritually". In most cases this confusion involved a fallen away Catholic. Given the clear words of scripture, without question, many have been decieved with half-truths and/or the topic has been purposefully avoided in churches that feed on fallen away Catholics. The recent issuance of a Vatican document affirming the centrality of the Catholic Church clarifies, with precision, this confusion, and dilineates those who do, and do not possess Jesus in the

MEGA CHURCH EVANGELICALS ARE STARVING FOR THE BODY AND BLOOD OF JESUS

takingofchrist
A recent poll conducted by ChristiaNet.com which claims to be the most visited protestant Christian website, asked its readers to respond to certain personal sexual questions. The poll responses revealed that Christians are succumbing to the same temptations at a similar rate as that of secular society.

“The poll results indicate that 50% of all Christian men and 20% of all Christian women are addicted to pornography,” said Clay Jones, founder and President of Second Glance Ministries...60% of the women who answered the survey admitted to having significant struggles with lust, 40% admitted to being involved in sexual sin in the past year, and 20% of the church-going female participants struggle with looking at pornography on an ongoing basis.

“There have been dynamic paradigm shifts in the behavior of Christians over the last four years,” explained Jones. “Technology [the Internet] has allowed pornography to flood the market place beyond a controllable level.”

The paradigm shift which Mr. Jones is referring to is not caused by the proliferation of the internet, rather it is the inevitable consequence of christianity that is starving for the Body Read More...

PUBLIC OPINION POLLS ON THE BODY AND BLOOD OF JESUS

Kd-Keys.sm

The poll wielding bullies are at it again.

The Pope believes that Catholic politicians who support abortion rights should be denied communion. Do you agree or disagree?

Agree 23%

Disagree 53%


The arrogance and futility of such a poll borders on hilarity. The topic of the poll is the Body and Blood of the Son of God--the Messiah. It is as if they were asking if the pope's selection of cologne or his choice of sunglasses is proper? The reverence due to the Body and Blood of the Son of God is not subject to public opinion. Nor is anything else that the Church does or does not do.

The issue is authority--which Americans cannot grasp, and which is seen as down-right un-American. The pollsters seek to exert public opinion pressure on the Church in order to make it conform to the world. This has been satan's mission

BORN AGAIN CHRISTIANITY, THE BODY AND BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST & THE DEATH OF THE WEST

So many in the West have fallen away from Christianity and continue to do so.  The popular churches of the day do not adequately arm Christians to do battle with the seductions of the world, let alone the onslaught of Islam.

Two recent articles reveal how young people who have been "born again" in the protestant fashion are nevertheless falling away.


"As Pentecostalism advances across the world, winning converts faster than any other Christian denomination and siphoning believers from more established faiths, it is also suffering its own slow leak: young people who are falling away from the faith."

One teenager stated 
“[t]he pastor is cool...He doesn’t lie to us. He is a little kid, like us.”

"One of [the pastor's] biggest dreams is an after-school center where they could study, play — and convert.
