    Ireland, once the Land of Saints and Scholars, is running out of latter day reverts to Druidism, whose paganism has arisen once again in the land that Saint Patrick converted to the Holy Faith, starting the conversion of the chieftains on Easter Sunday in the year 433 A.D. The doctrinal heterodoxy and sacramental sterility of the counterfeit church of conciliarism, assisted quite a bit by the systematic cover-up of clerical abuse scandals, have done the unthinkable by reversing almost all of the apostolic work done by Saint Patrick, Bishop and Confessor, to lead the people of the Emerald Isle out of bondage to the devil and into the freedom that comes from yoking oneself to Our Divine Redeemer, Christ the King, as He has revealed Himself to us through His true Church.

    Yes, the Land of Erin, is permitting itself to give sway not only to the Druidism of its pre-Catholic past but also to give Mohammedans the widest space possible to practice and thus propagate their diabolical religion in what was once the most Catholic country on the face of the earth, a land that suffered much under Protestant English occupation and repression. The Mohammedans have established a foothold, and they are not interested in "inter-religious dialogue." They are interested in conquest, and it does not matter to them how they achieve it, although they will take it when it is given to them on a silver platter in the name of the madness known as religious liberty:

         

            The Emir of Qatar, who has long cultivated an image as a pro-Western reformist, has vowed to "spare no effort" to spread Wahhabi Islam throughout Europe. Wahhabism — which not only discourages Muslim integration in the West but actively encourages jihad against non-Muslims — threatens to radicalize Muslim immigrants in Ireland.

        City planners in the Irish capital, Dublin, have given the go-ahead for the construction of a sprawling mega-mosque complex that will cater to Ireland's burgeoning Muslim population.

        The massive €40 million ($50 million) "Islamic Cultural Center" will be built on a six-acre site in Clongriffin, a new and as yet unfinished suburb at the northern edge of Dublin.

        According to the Dublin City Council, which approved the project on March 7, the Clongriffin Mosque will consist of: (a) a three-story domed mosque and cultural center with towering minarets; (b) a two-story conference center including a reception foyer, conference room, restaurant, banquet hall, kitchens and ancillary accommodation; (c) a three-story 16-classroom primary school and a two-story 12-classroom secondary school; (d) a two-story fitness center with a gym, sauna, steam room and an Olympic-sized indoor swimming pool; (e) a bookshop, library and mortuary; and (f) three four-story blocks of two-bedroom apartments with ground floor shops.

        The Clongriffin Mosque will cater to some of the 30,000 Muslims living in Dublin, which is home to around 60% of the estimated 50,000 Muslims living in Ireland.

        Although the number of Muslims in Ireland is relatively small (1.07% of the overall population), when compared to other European countries, the rate of growth of the Muslim population in Ireland has surged exponentially (1,170%) over the past 20 years, and Islam is now the fastest growing religion in the country. The total population of Ireland is 4.6 million.

        According to Irish census data for 1991, the number of Muslims in the country was 3,875. After 1991, the Muslim population jumped, due to the arrival of Muslim refugees and asylum seekers from Bosnia, Kosovo and Somalia. According to the Irish census data for 2002, the number of Muslims was 19,147; by 2006, that number had swelled to 32,539. In the 2011 census, the number of Muslims was 49,204.

        Ireland's Muslim population is projected to almost triple over the next twenty years, according to the Washington, DC-based Pew Research Center. A report entitled, The Future of the Global Muslim Population: Projections for 2010-2030 forecasts that there will be 125,000 Muslims living in Ireland by 2030.

        The Clongriffin Mosque is being promoted by a Dublin-based Muslim organization called the Dublin Welfare Society Limited, an opaque group that was incorporated in April 2010 and has no formal activities other than to lobby for the mosque project.

        The mega-mosque will be developed by a local real estate mogul, Gerry Gannon, on extensive land he owns at Clongriffin. According to the Irish Times, the project is a "coup" for Gannon, who hopes to sell hundreds and possibly thousands of newly built homes to Muslim families using the cultural center.

        Clongriffin is located about 10 kilometers (6 miles) north of Dublin. Also known as the North Fringe, most of the land on which Clongriffin is being built was previously farmland. In July 2003, the Dublin City Council granted permission to begin developing a new suburb comprising houses and apartments, as well as schools, retail stores, supermarkets and a multi-screen cinema.

        But construction in Clongriffin came to an abrupt halt after the Irish property bubble burst in 2009, and the country needed to be rescued in November 2010 with an €85 billion ($109 billion) bailout by the European Union and the International Monetary Fund.

        Before Ireland's real estate crash, Gannon invested millions of euros on developing Clongriffin, including the construction of a railway station linking the suburb to downtown Dublin. With the approval of the mega-mosque project, Clongriffin suddenly has a new lease on life... and so does Gannon.

        Planning documents show that the Dublin City Council has approved the construction of 3,678 new homes near where the mega-mosque will be built. Gannon hopes the Clongriffin Mosque will fuel demand for the homes he is eager to sell.

        But critics worry that Clongriffin is in danger of becoming an exclusively Islamic suburb on the outskirts of Dublin where Muslims will establish a parallel society rather than integrate.

        An Islamist website called "Islamic Vanguards: Spearheading Ireland's Transition" recently warned that Gannon's greed would be Ireland's undoing: "If there's one thing the west yearns, it is money. For it has worshiped this false god without fail for as long as they have departed from the worship of the true God. And it is this weakness, nay addiction that will see what they hold precious being wrenched from their spindly hands. Already as we speak vast swathes of the London metropolis are in Muslim hands, Dublin is set to follow as the wealth that Allah has blessed His servants with is used to reclaim the land for His glory."

        In any event, the Clongriffin Mosque will not be the only mega-mosque in town: the new mosque on the northern edge of Dublin will compete with another mega-mosque, located in Clonskeagh on the southern edge of Dublin.

        The mosque complex at Clonskeagh, which also goes by the name "Islamic Cultural Center," has been in operation since 1996. Its sprawling four-acre campus was financed by Sheikh Hamdan bin Rashid Al Maktoum, the deputy ruler of Dubai.

        The Clonskeagh Mosque is home to the European Council for Fatwa and Research (ECFR), an Islamist group which seeks to have Islamic Sharia law recognized throughout Europe.

        The ECFR is an integral part of the Brussels-based Federation of Islamic Organizations in Europe (FIOE), an umbrella group that unites more than 30 Muslim Brotherhood organizations in Europe, and acts as the main vehicle for propagating Muslim Brotherhood ideology in Europe.

        The ECFR is chaired by the Egyptian-born, Qatari-based Yusuf al-Qaradawi, the influential Islamic scholar who is also a senior leader of the Muslim Brotherhood.

        Al-Qaradawi -- a spiritual advisor for the Palestinian terrorist group Hamas who has defended suicide attacks against Jews as "martyrdom in the name of Allah" -- has been banned from entering Great Britain and the United States.

        Al-Qaradawi speaks openly about the goals of Islam: "What remains, then, is to conquer Rome. (...) This means that Islam will come back to Europe for the third time, after it was expelled from it twice. (...) Conquest through Dawa [proselytizing] that is what we hope for. We will conquer Europe, we will conquer America! Not through sword but through our Dawa."

        According to a leaked US State Department memo dated July 7, 2006, the Muslim Brotherhood is stronger in Ireland than anywhere in the world outside of Qatar, and al-Qaradawi "runs Islam in Ireland."

        The Muslim Brotherhood, which is heavily influenced by the extremist ideology of Wahhabism, subsidized by Qatar and Saudi Arabia, may be about to tighten its grip over Islam in Ireland even further.

        Rumors abound that the new mega-mosque at Clongriffin will be financed by Qatar, which has been engaged in a multi-million euro spending spree to spread Wahhabi Islam around Europe.

        Wahhabism -- which not only discourages Muslim integration in the West, but actively encourages jihad against non-Muslims -- threatens to radicalize Muslim immigrants in Ireland, according to the Irish Times.

        Qatari Emir Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, who has long cultivated an image as a pro-Western reformist and modernizer, has vowed to "spare no effort" to spread the fundamentalist teachings of Wahhabi Islam across "the whole world." (Ireland to Build One of Europe's Largest Mosques.)

         

    As always, the lords of Modernity in the realm of civil government and the lords of Modernism in the counterfeit church conciliarism believe that Mohammedans can be "assimilated" in the remnants of once Catholic countries that have reverted to paganism so that they will accept the joys that are said to come from "pluralism," "diversity," "multiculturalism," "dialogue," "ecumenism" and "religious liberty.

    Ever eager to project onto Mohammedanism others a religious indifferentism that they do not share and indeed are contemptuous of, leaders of Western governments and the spiritual robber barons of conciliarism have convinced themselves that "liberal" gestures such as letting Mohammedans build and expand mosques and to permit them to migrate to formerly Catholic lands in large numbers will "pacify" the believing disciples of the false prophet Mohammed over the course of time. Mohammedan leaders know that their pretended friends are fooling themselves, and they have the patience to outlast them as they win by procreation and by what is forbidding by "ecumenism," proselytism, to convert large majorities of people either to Mohammedanism itself or, at the very least, an acceptance of it and of the "rights" of Mohammedans to live by Sharia law in formerly Catholic countries.

    Gone are the days when Charles Martel defeated the Mohammedans at the Battle of Tours (also known as the Battle of Poitiers) on October 10, 732, as the infidels who followed the false prophet Mohammed attempted to move northward from southern France. The Mohammedans are present today in France in large numbers, creating a "multiculturalism" there that had not previously existed. The French, victims of the falsehoods of the French Revolution that were "baptized" by the Sillon and then incorporated into the liturgy and pastoral praxis of the counterfeit church of conciliarism, have contracepted and aborted themselves, something that has been exploited by the Mohammedans, who are welcoming children in abundance. The same is happening in Ireland now as has happened throughout the continent of Europe where one formerly Catholic nation after another has come to view Mohammedanism as "sacred" and beyond criticism, no less public sanction.

    Ah, but what does true history and the Catholic Faith mean to the conciliar revolutionaries? Nothing. Nothing at all. So much for Charles Martel.

    Pope Urban II preached the First Crusade on November 27, 1095 at the Council of Clermont to wage a war, sanctioned by God Himself, in defense of the Catholic churches and holy places in the Holy Land that had been sacked and taken over by the bloodthirsty Mohammedans. Here is an account of his speech:

        "If among the churches scattered about over the whole world some, because of persons or location, deserve reverence above others (for persons, I say, since greater privileges are accorded to apostolic sees; for places, indeed, since the same dignity which is accorded to persons is also shown to regal cities, such as Constantinople), we owe most to that church from which we received the grace of redemption and the source of all Christianity. If what the Lord says namely, 'Salvation is from the Jews,' accords with the truth, and it is true that the Lord has left us Sabaoth as seed, that we may not become like Sodom and Gomorrah, and our seed is Christ, in whom is the salvation and benediction of all peoples, then, indeed, the very land and city in which He dwelt and suffered is, by witnesses of the Scriptures, holy. If this land is spoken of in the sacred writings of the prophets as the inheritance and the holy temple of God before ever the Lord walked about in it, or was revealed, what sanctity, what reverence has it not acquired since God in His majesty was there clothed in the flesh, nourished, grew up, and in bodily form there walked about, or was carried about; and, to compress in fitting brevity all that might be told in a long series of words, since there the blood of the Son of God, more holy than heaven and earth, was poured forth, and His body, its quivering members dead, rested in the tomb. What veneration do we think it deserves? If, when the Lord had but just been crucified and the city was still held by the Jews, it was called holy by the evangelist when he says, 'Many bodies of the saints that had fallen asleep were raised; and coming forth out of the tombs after His resurrection, they entered into the holy city and appeared unto many,' and by the prophet Isaiah when be says, 'It shall be His glorious sepulchre,' then, surely, with this sanctity placed upon it by God the Sanctifier Himself, no evil that may befall it can destroy it, and in the same way glory is indivisibly fixed to His Sepulchre. Most beloved brethren, if you reverence the source of that holiness and I . you cherish these shrines which are the marks of His footprints on earth, if you seek (the way), God leading you, God fighting in your behalf, you should strive with your utmost efforts to cleanse the Holy City and the glory of the Sepulchre, now polluted by the concourse of the Gentiles, as much as is in their power.

        "If in olden times the Maccabees attained to the highest praise of piety because they fought for the ceremonies and the Temple, it is also justly granted you, Christian soldiers, to defend their liberty of your country by armed endeavor. If you, likewise, consider that the abode of the holy apostles and any other saints should be striven for with such effort, why do you refuse to rescue the Cross, the Blood, the Tomb? Why do you refuse to visit them, to spend the price of your lives in rescuing them? You have thus far waged unjust wars, at one time and another; you have brandished mad weapons to your mutual destruction, for no other reason than covetousness and pride, as a result of which you have deserved eternal death and sure damnation. We now hold out to you wars which contain the glorious reward of martyrdom, which will retain that title of praise now and forever.

        "Let us suppose, for the moment, that Christ was not dead and buried, and had never lived any length of time in Jerusalem. Surely, if all this were lacking, this fact alone ought still to arouse you to go to the aid of the land and city -- the fact that 'Out of Zion shall go forth the law and the word of Jehovah from Jerusalem!' If all that there is of Christian preaching has flowed from the fountain of Jerusalem, its streams, whithersoever spread out over the whole world, encircle the hearts of the Catholic multitude, that they may consider wisely what they owe such a well-watered fountain. If rivers return to the place whence they have issued only to flow forth again, according to the saying of Solomon, it ought to seem glorious to you to be able to apply a new cleansing to this place, whence it is certain that you received the cleansing of baptism and the witness of your faith.

        "And you ought, furthermore, to consider with the utmost deliberation, if by your labors, God working through you, it should occur that the Mother of churches should flourish anew to the worship of Christianity, whether, perchance, He may not wish other regions of the East to be restored to the faith against the approaching time of the Antichrist. For it is clear that Antichrist is to do battle not with the Jews, not with the Gentiles; but, according to the etymology of his name, He will attack Christians. And if Antichrist finds there no Christians (just as at present when scarcely any dwell there), no one will be there to oppose him, or whom he may rightly overcome. According to Daniel and Jerome, the interpreter of Daniel, he is to fix his tents on the Mount of Olives; and it is certain, for the apostle teaches it, that he will sit at Jerusalem in the Temple of the Lord, as though he were God. And according to the same prophet, he will first kill three kings of Egypt, Africa, and Ethiopia, without doubt for their Christian faith: This, indeed, could not at all be done unless Christianity was established where now is paganism. If, therefore, you are zealous in the practice of holy battles, in order that, just as you have received the seed of knowledge of God from Jerusalem, you may in the same way restore the borrowed grace, so that through you the Catholic name may be advanced to oppose the perfidy of the Antichrist and the Antichristians then, who can not conjecture that God, who has exceeded the hope of all, will consume, in the abundance of your courage and through you as the spark, such a thicket of paganism as to include within His law Egypt, Africa, and Ethiopia, which have withdrawn from the communion of our belief? And the man of sin, the son of perdition, will find some to oppose him. Behold, the Gospel cries out, 'Jerusalem shall be trodden down by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles be fulfilled.' 'Times of the Gentiles' can be understood in two ways: Either that they have ruled over the Christians at their pleasure, and have gladly frequented the sloughs of all baseness for the satisfaction of their lusts, and in all this have had no obstacle (for they who have everything according to their wish are said to have their time; there is that saying: 'My time is not yet come, but your time is always ready,' whence the lustful are wont to say 'you are having your time'). Or, again, 'the times of the Gentiles' are the fulness of time for those Gentiles who shall have entered secretly before Israel shall be saved. These times, most beloved brothers, will now, forsooth, be fulfilled, provided the might of the pagans be repulsed through You, with the cooperation of God. With the end of the world already near, even though the Gentiles fail to be converted t the Lord (since according to the apostle there must be a withdrawal from the faith), it is first necessary, according to their prophecy, that the Christian sway be renewed in those regions either through you, or others, whom it shall please God to send before the coming of Antichrist, so that the head of all evil, who is to occupy there the throne of the kingdom, shall find some support of the faith to fight against him.

        "Consider, therefore, that the Almighty has provided you, perhaps, for this purpose, that through you He may restore Jerusalem from such debasement. Ponder, I beg you, how full of joy and delight our hearts will be when we shall see the Holy City restored with your little help, and the prophet's, nay divine, words fulfilled in our times. Let your memory be moved by what the Lord Himself says to the Church: 'I will bring thy seed from the East and gather thee from the West.' God has already brought our, seed from the East, since in a double way that region of the East has given the first beginnings of the Church to us. But from the West He will also gather it, provided He repairs the wrongs of 1 Jerusalem through those who have begun the witness of the final faith, that is the people of the West. With God's assistance, we think this can be done through you.

        "If neither the words of the Scriptures arouse you, nor our admonitions penetrate your minds, at least let the great suffering of those who desired to go to the holy places stir you up. Think of those who made the pilgrimage across the sea! Even if they were more wealthy, consider what taxes, what violence they underwent, since they were forced to make payments and tributes almost every mile, to purchase release at every gate of the city, at the entrance of the churches and temples, at every side journey from place to place: also, if any accusation whatsoever were made against them, they were compelled to purchase their release; but if they refused to pay money, the prefects of the Gentiles, according to their custom, urged them fiercely with blows. What shall we say of those who took up the journey without anything more than trust in their barren poverty, since they seemed to have nothing except their bodies to lose? They not only demanded money of them, which is not an unendurable punishment, but also examined the callouses of their heels, cutting them open and folding the skin back, lest, perchance, they had sewed something there. Their unspeakable cruelty was carried on even to the point of giving them scammony to drink until they vomited, or even burst their bowels, because they thought the wretches had swallowed gold or silver; or, horrible to say, they cut their bowels open with a sword and, spreading out the folds of the intestines, with frightful mutilation disclosed whatever nature held there in secret. Remember, I pray, the thousands who have perished vile deaths, and strive for the holy places from which the beginnings of your faith have come. Before you engage in His battles, believe without question that Christ will be your standard-bearer and inseparable forerunner."

        The most excellent man concluded his oration and by the power of the blessed Peter. absolved all who vowed to go and confirmed those acts with apostolic blessing. He instituted a sign well suited t so honorable a profession by making the figure of the Cross, the stigma of the Lord's Passion, the emblem of the soldiery, or rather, of what was to be the soldiery of God. This, made of any kind of cloth, he ordered to be sewed upon the shirts, cloaks, and byrra of those who were about to go. He commanded that if anyone, after receiving this emblem, or after taking openly this vow, should shrink from his good intent through base change of heart, or any affection for his parents, he should be regarded an outlaw forever, unless he repented and again undertook whatever of his pledge he had omitted. Furthermore, the Pope condemned with a fearful anathema all those who dared to molest the wives, children, and possessions of these who were going on this journey for God. . . .  (Guibert de Nogent: Historia quae dicitur Gesta Dei per Francos.)

         

    What does this mean to the conciliar revolutionaries? Nothing. Nothing at all:

        4. Let us forgive and ask forgiveness! While we praise God who, in his merciful love, has produced in the Church a wonderful harvest of holiness, missionary zeal, total dedication to Christ and neighbour, we cannot fail to recognize the infidelities to the Gospel committed by some of our brethren, especially during the second millennium. Let us ask pardon for the divisions which have occurred among Christians, for the violence some have used in the service of the truth and for the distrustful and hostile attitudes sometimes taken towards the followers of other religions.

        Let us confess, even more, our responsibilities as Christians for the evils of today. We must ask ourselves what our responsibilities are regarding atheism, religious indifference, secularism, ethical relativism, the violations of the right to life, disregard for the poor in many countries.

        We humbly ask forgiveness for the part which each of us has had in these evils by our own actions, thus helping to disfigure the face of the Church.

        At the same time, as we confess our sins, let us forgive the sins committed by others against us. Countless times in the course of history Christians have suffered hardship, oppression and persecution because of their faith. Just as the victims of such abuses forgave them, so let us forgive as well. The Church today feels and has always felt obliged to purify her memory of those sad events from every feeling of rancour or revenge. In this way the Jubilee becomes for everyone a favourable opportunity for a profound conversion to the Gospel. The acceptance of God's forgiveness leads to the commitment to forgive our brothers and sisters and to be reconciled with them. (Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II, Day of Pardon, March 12, 2000.)

         

    Pope Saint Pius V, a spiritual son of Saint Dominic de Guzman, the founder of the Order of Preachers, begged that Catholics everywhere pray Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary, which she had given to Saint Dominic in the year 1208, for the defeat of the Turkish fleet in the Battle of Lepanto on October 7, 1571:

        We have already met with the names of several Pontiffs on the Paschal Calendar. They form a brilliant constellation around our Risen Jesus, who, during the period between his Resurrection and Ascension, gave to Peter, their predecessor, the keys of the kingdom of heaven. Anicetus, Soter, Caius, Cletus and Marcellinus, held in their hands the palm of martyrdom: Leo was the only one who did not shed his blood in the cause of his divine Master. To-day there comes before us a holy Pope who governed the Church in these latter times; he is worthy to stand amidst the Easter group of Pontiffs. Like Leo, Pius V was zealous in combating heresy; like Leo, he saved his people form the barbarian yoke.

        The whole life of Pius V was a combat. His pontificate fell during those troubled times when Protestantism was leading whole countries into apostasy. Italy was not a prey that could be taken by violence: artifice was therefore used, in order to undermine the Apostolic See and thus develop the whole Christian world in the darkness of heresy. Pius defend the Peninsula with untiring devotedness from the danger that threatened her. Even before he was raised to the Papal Throne he frequently exposed his life by his zeal in opposing the preaching of false doctrines. Like Peter the Martyr, he braved every danger and was the dread of the emissaries of heresy. When seated on the Chair of Peter, he kept the innovators in check by fear, roused the sovereigns of Italy to energy and by measures of moderate severity drove back beyond the Alps the torrent that would have swept Christianity from Europe had not the Southern States thus opposed it. From that time forward, Protestantism has never made any further progress: it has been wearing itself out by doctrinal anarchy. We repeat it: this heresy would have laid all Europe waste, had it not been for the vigilance of the pastor who animated the defenders of truth to resist it where it already existed, and who set himself as a wall against its invasion in the country where he himself was the master.

        Another enemy, taking advantage of the confusion caused in the West by Protestantism, organized an expedition against Europe. Italy was to be its first prey. The Ottoman fleet started from the Bosphorus. This again would have meant the ruin of Christendom but for the energy of the Roman Pontiff, our Saint. he gave the alarm, and called the Christian Princes to arms. Germany and France, torn by domestic factions that had been caused by heresy, turned a deaf ear to the call. Spain alone, together with Venice and the little Papal fleet, answered the summons of the Pontiff. The Cross and the Crescent were soon face to face in the Gulf of Lepanto. The prayers of Pius V decided the victory in favor of the Christians, whose forces were much inferior to those of the Turks. We shall return to this important event when we come to the Feast of the Rosary in October. But we omit to mention to-day the prediction uttered by the holy Pope, on the evening of the great day of October 7, 1571. The battle between the Christian and Turkish fleets lasted from six o'clock in the morning till late in the afternoon. Towards evening, the Pontiff suddenly looked up towards heaven, and gazed upon it in silence for a few seconds. Then turning to his attendants, he exclaimed: 'Let us give thanks to God! The Christians have gained the victory!' The news soon arrived at Rome; and thus, Europe once more owed her salvation to a Pope! The defeat at Lepanto was a blow from which the Ottoman Empire has never recovered: its fall dates from that glorious day. (Dom Prosper Gueranger, O.S.B., The Liturgical Year.)

         

    What does this mean to the conciliar revolutionaries. Nothing. Nothing at all. Here is a brief account of Giovanni Montini/Paul VI's act of treachery in 1964 in which he returned the flag of the flagship of the Turkish fleet that had been captured during the Battle of Lepanto:

        Indeed, such subtlety [Paul VI's removal of his tiara] seemed designed to bear a very special sort of fruit. So did Paul's visit one year later to the United Nations headquarters in New York, where he told delegates:

            "We are conscious that you are the interpreters of all that is paramount in human wisdom. We would almost say: of its sacred character. For your concern is first and foremost with the life of man, and man's life is sacred: no one may dare to interfere with it."

             

        Presumably "no one" does not included God. Paul's performance at the United Nations, an organization long viewed with suspicion by the Church for the obvious reasons, sent many a Catholic reeling. So did papal act just two months later, when Paul gave back to the Muslims the Standard of Lepanto. The history of the flag was venerable. It was taken from a Turkish admiral during a great naval battle in 1571. While Pope St. Pius V fasted and prayed the Rosary, an out-numbered Christian fleet defeated a much larger Moslem navy, thus saving Christendom from the infidel. In honor of the miraculous victory, Pius V instituted the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary to commemorate Her intercession.

        In one dramatic act Paul renounced not only a remarkable Christian victory, but the prayers and sacrifices of a great Pope and saint. Worse, he appeared to be rejecting the intercession of Our Lady of the Most Holy Rosary--again. "The wars of religion are finished for good." Paul told the Turks by way of explanation. Their immediate response was not recorded, but the rise of militant Islam in the last three decades indicates that yet another of Pope Paul's prophecies has gone awry. (Mark Fellows, Fatima in Twilight, Marmion Publications, 2003, p. 193.)

         

    King Jan Sobieski of Poland used Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary to lead his Catholic forces in battle against the Turks as they attempted to storm the Gates of Vienna on September 12, 1683, defeating the last effort by the Mohammedans to invade Europe until they were welcomed in recent decades by the formerly Catholic nations of Europe where the labor pool had shrunk as a result of contraception and abortion:

        In 1683 Turkish forces threatened once again to overrun Europe. They carried the war into Austria for the purpose of annihilating the Catholic religion. Kara Mustapha, Grand Vizier of Mahomet IV, had boasted that he would not rest until he had stabled his master's horses at Saint Peter's in Rome. With an army 300,000 strong, the leader of the infidels arrived at the gates of Vienna and laid siege to the city. Days of enemy assaults, fire, and disease had reduced the Austrian capital to the last extremity. A small garrison of exhausted men, under the command of the courageous Imperial General, Count Starhemberg, himself wounded in the attack, fought desperately, with no earthly help in sight.

        Pope Innocent XI urgently appealed to the princes of Europe on behalf of the beleaguered city and, on the feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin, the "Unvanquished Lion of the North", John Sobieski, King of Poland, mounted his war-horse, going forth to battle for the glory of the cross and the preservation of all Christendom. (Letter to Blessed Pope Innocent XVI)

        Before Our Lady's altar in Her sanctuary in Czestochowa, the King raised his sword and vowed not to sheathe it until the mighty Queen of Heaven had given victory. The army asked Her blessings on their enterprise. Marching towards Vienna, the men prayed the Holy Rosary, Sobieski, wearing an image of Our Lady of Czestochowa, gave his soldiers their battle cry: In the Name of Mary: Lord God, help!

        Joining up with the Imperial army, under the command of Charles, Duke of Lorraine, John Sobieski, whose tranquil presence in the midst of fiercest combat had such power with his own forces, had been unanimously chosen to lead the united armies of Europe. Many a time had his fearless leadership routed the Moslem invaders!

        At five o'clock on the morning of September 12, the Holy Sacrifice was celebrated by the papal legate, Father Marco d'Aviano, on the heights of Mount Kalemberg, overlooking the Austrian capital. The King yielded to no one in the honor serving that Mass. The armies of Christendom knelt in humble prayer. Later on that same day, Father Marco was to see a white dove hovering over this very king and his men while the battled raged, a sign of the victory to come.

        The King gave a signal. Drums rolled, cannons roared and the great human avalanche plunged down the steep mountain precipices shouting, Jesus! Mary! Sobieski! Jesus! Mary! Sobieski!

        Many were the separate and terrible combats on that memorable day, but suffice it to say that by five in the afternoon, the warrior king brandished his sword and charged upon the tent of the Turkish leader, shouting the words of the prophet king [David], Non nobis Domine exercituum, non nobis, sed Nomini tuo da gloriam. Not to us, O Lord of Host, not to us, but to Thy name give the glory. [Psalm 113:9]

        The name of Sobieski spread panic throughout the enemy camp. Kara Mustapha, trembling in his boots, turned to the Tarter Khan, Selim Gieray, Can you not save me? he pleaded. I know the Polish king, Selim replied, where he is, flight is our only refuge. Look out upon the firmament and you will see that God Himself is against us. (The two armies saw the crescent moon fade in the skies.) The Moslem army fled in terror. Sobieski and his men attributed their victory to God and the power of Our Lady's name.

        We are now on our march to Hungary, the king wrote, taking advantage of their distraction to defeat the remainder of their scattered troops. I have all the princes of the Empire my companions in this enterprise, who tell me they are ready to follow such a leader not only into Hungary but to the end of the world...Thanks be to Heaven, now the half-moon triumphs no longer over the Cross.

        Blessed Pope Innocent XI, established the Feast of the Holy Name of Mary to be celebrated on the twelfth of September each year as a perpetual memory of the victory of Vienna.  (The Garland of Roses.)

         

    What does this mean to the conciliar revolutionaries? Nothing. Nothing at all.

    These victories against the false religion of Mohammedanism meant a lot to the Catholic Church. They were included in a summary of the history of Christendom provided by Pope Leo XIII in Immortale Dei, November 1, 1885:

     

        21. There was once a time when States were governed by the philosophy of the Gospel. Then it was that the power and divine virtue of Christian wisdom had diffused itself throughout the laws, institutions, and morals of the people, permeating all ranks and relations of civil society. Then, too, the religion instituted by Jesus Christ, established firmly in befitting dignity, flourished everywhere, by the favour of princes and the legitimate protection of magistrates; and Church and State were happily united in concord and friendly interchange of good offices. The State, constituted in this wise, bore fruits important beyond all expectation, whose remembrance is still, and always will be, in renown, witnessed to as they are by countless proofs which can never be blotted out or ever obscured by any craft of any enemies. Christian Europe has subdued barbarous nations, and changed them from a savage to a civilized condition, from superstition to true worship. It victoriously rolled back the tide of Mohammedan conquest; retained the headship of civilization; stood forth in the front rank as the leader and teacher of all, in every branch of national culture; bestowed on the world the gift of true and many-sided liberty; and most wisely founded very numerous institutions for the solace of human suffering. And if we inquire how it was able to bring about so altered a condition of things, the answer is-beyond all question, in large measure, through religion, under whose auspices so many great undertakings were set on foot, through whose aid they were brought to completion. (Pope Leo XIII, Immortale Dei, November 1, 1885.)

    As we know so very well, the conciliar revolutionaries are celebrating the virtual conquest of Europe by the Mohammedans, using the slogan of "multiculturalism" to do so, going so far as to praise the "inculturation" of Mohammedanism on the soil of once Catholic Europe. The conciliar "bishops" of Italy have been particularly aggressive in this regard in the past dozen years of so:

        The second meeting of delegates from the Bishops Conferences in Europe for relations with Muslims in Europe took place in Turin (Italy) from May 31 to June 2, 2011.  The Council of the Bishops’ Conferences of Europe (known by its French initials CCEE) brings together the presidents of the 33 European bishops’ conferences.  Presiding over this meeting was Cardinal Jean-Pierre Ricard, Archbishop of Bordeaux and vice-president of the CCEE.  Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, President of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, was also present.

        On June 1, Archbishop Maroun Lahham, Archbishop of Tunis, spoke, emphasizing that the number of initiatives from the Muslim side in the Islamic-Christian dialogue is clearly increasing.  “In this there is an overcoming of a psychology of fear or doubt with regard to a topic,” he remarked somewhat optimistically.  Archbishop Lahham does not forget that there are violent demonstrations when an Islamic personage or dogma is called into question (caricatures of Muhammad, the pope’s lecture in Regensburg….), while noting that this sort of violent action is becoming less frequent.  But he declared:  “the family, the school and the mosque do not educate people in a basic view of equality between Arab Christian and Arab Muslim.”  Later in his talk he added, “We must not forget that Islam presents itself as a unique, all-encompassing system in which everything is related (faith, worship, family, children, morality, prophet, economic life, inheritance, etc.).  Therefore it is enough to touch just one point in this larger system, and Islam per se feels that is it threatened or offended.”  In the same way, the notion of religious freedom has quite different meanings for Christians and Muslims.  According to Abp. Lahham, “In Muslim countries (with rare exceptions), the Christian minorities have freedom of worship, in other words, the freedom to practice their faith, in private and in public.  Now the Christian concept of religious freedom, especially after Vatican II, means freedom of conscience, in other words, the freedom to choose one’s religion or to choose not to have any religion.”

        After this second meeting, the delegates of the Bishops’ Conference published a newsletter online on the CCEE’s website.  The bishops confirm that the Catholic Church is following with much interest the “progressive enculturation of Islam in Europe, with a tendency to manifest more its religious and moral than its political dimension.”  And that “in order to provide their religious leaders – imams or teachers – with a theological and cultural formation that will allow them suitably to play their religious role in the European context.”  In the perspective of the creation of a chair of Islamic theology in the State universities, the Church – they go on to say – is in favor of confessional teaching of religion in public schools being made available to other religious traditions, including Islam.

        The bishops candidly declare that they “share with sympathy in the expressions of a desire for democracy, freedom,  and of a call for respect of persons, of which the youth from different Arab countries have made themselves the promoters during these months of great political changes, and they express a wish that the process underway may lead to the establishment of a true freedom of religion in these countries, so that Arabian Christians may also enjoy this freedom in the context of an egalitarian citizenship.” – Which only goes to show that, far from what Archbishop Lahham claims, freedom of religion is not guaranteed to the Christian minorities in these countries.

        These delegates next claim to have made “a critical evaluation of the term ‘islamophobia’ used to describe the reactions of hostility towards Islam”, and to prefer the terms ‘fear’ and ‘hostility’.  They also “exhort Muslims to form positive and transparent relations”…in order to dissipate a hostile attitude towards them.  To conclude, the bishops repeated “their conviction that the Catholic Church will pursue the dialogue with the Muslims with renewed commitment, in the footsteps of Vatican Council II and following the teaching of Benedict XVI”, in which Christians and Muslims are finally called to express their faith sincerely without imposing it. – No comment.

        One goal among others of the Counsel of the Episcopal Conferences of Europe (CCEE), is to assure the exercise of collegiality in the hierarchical communion cum et sub romano pontifice; the promotion of the new evangelization on the European level; the support for the ecumenical collaboration in Europe, and to reestablish the unity of Christians.  These meetings generally take place every three years, and examine the principal questions related to evangelization and the enculturation of the Gospel in the European context. (sources: ccee/apic – DICI#236, June 11, 2011) (Conciliar "Bishops" in Italy Favor "Inculturation of Islam" in Europe.)

         

    This is madness. Sure, it is a madness that is, quite sadly, very commonplace in the counterfeit church of conciliarism. It is madness nevertheless, which is why Magi Cristiano Allam has left the conciliar church, knowing that its endless concessions to Mohammedanism are diaoblically inspired (see Francis And Other Judases Abound In Holy Week.

    Aping the false "pontiff emeritus,"Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, and his successor, Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis, the conciliar "bishops" of Italy, the conciliar "bishops" of Italy believe that it is important for "Christians" in Europe to welcome Mohammedans in the name of "religious liberty," believing that their own gestures of warmth and support for the propagation of the blasphemous lies of this false religion will be reciprocated by the Mohammedans in their own countries, including Ireland. How does a sickle look on the flag of Ireland?

    In other words, Mohammedans must be "converted" to the conciliar falsehood of "religious liberty," in and of itself a rejection of the immutable teaching of the Catholic Church, and not to the Catholic Faith. Indeed, this completely mad, insane belief was the very foundation of Ratzinger/Benedict's Assisi III (see Another Year of the Same Conciliar Apostasy, Part One 1-3 Another Year of the Same Conciliar Apostasy, Part Two, Another Year of the Same Conciliar Apostasy, Part Three, Not Interested in Assisi III, American Pots Lecturing Egyptian Kettles, Blood Flows Freely in America and Libya and Outcome Based Conciliar Math: Assisi I + Assisi II  + Assisi III = A-P-O-S-T-A-S-Y).

    The true God of Divine Revelation, the Most Holy Trinity, in Whom Mohammed could not believe, hates each and every false religion. The Second Person of the Most Blessed Trinity made Man in His Most Blessed Mother's Virginal and Immaculate Womb, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, did not become Man and then suffer and die on the wood of the Holy Cross so that the rational creatures He redeemed by the shedding of every single drop of His Most Precious Blood could be left in errors of one sort of the other. He commissioned the Eleven to convert men and their nations to the true Faith, the Catholic Faith, outside of which there is no salvation and without which there can be no true social order. False religions have no right from God to exist, less yet to propagate themselves publicly or to have their false doctrines taught to Catholics in the concentration camps of propaganda known as "public schools."

    Alas, the conciliar revolutionaries have "thanked" the Mohammedans for having brought "God" back to Europe even though the Mohammedans do not worship the true God of Divine Revelation, the Most Holy Trinity, and that their goal is the elimination of all other religions and the triumph of Mohammedanism. This is what Jean-Louis "Cardinal" Tauran, the President of the "Pontifical" Council for Interreligious Dialogue, said in 2008:

        PARIS (Reuters) - A senior Vatican cardinal has thanked Muslims for bringing God back into the public sphere in Europe and said believers of different faiths had no option but to engage in interreligious dialogue.

        Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, head of the Catholic Church's department for interfaith contacts, said religion was now talked and written about more than ever before in today's Europe.

        "It's thanks to the Muslims," he said in a speech printed in Friday's L'Osservatore Romano, the official daily of the Vatican. "Muslims, having become a significant minority in Europe, were the ones who demanded space for God in society."

        Vatican officials have long bemoaned the secularisation of Europe, where church attendance has dwindled dramatically in recent decades, and urged a return to its historically Christian roots. But Tauran said no society had only one faith.

        "We live in multicultural and multireligious societies, that's obvious," he told a meeting of Catholic theologians in Naples. "There is no civilisation that is religiously pure."

        Tauran's positive speech on interfaith dialogue came after a remark by Pope Benedict prompted media speculation that the Vatican was losing interest in it. Some Jewish leaders reacted with expressions of concern and the Vatican denied any change.

        The "return of God" is clearly seen in Tauran's native France, where Europe's largest Muslim minority has brought faith questions such as women's headscarves into the political debate after decades when they were considered strictly private issues.

        Tauran said religions were "condemned to dialogue," a practice he called "the search for understanding between two subjects, with the help of reason, in view of a common interpretation of their agreement and disagreement."

        That seemed to clarify Benedict's statement on Sunday that interfaith dialogue was "not possible in the strict sense of the word". Church officials said a strict definition would include the option that one side is ultimately convinced by the other.

        Dialogue participants could not give up their religious convictions, Tauran said, but should be open to learning about the positive aspects of each others' faith.

        "Every religion has its own identity, but I agree to consider that God is at work in all, in the souls of those who search for him sincerely," he said. "Interreligious dialogue rallies all who are on the path to God or to the Absolute."

        The uncertainty about the Vatican view coincided with increasing contacts among world religions.

        Early this month, the Vatican held a pioneering conference with a delegation from the "Common Word" group of Muslim scholars who invited Christian churches to a new dialogue.

        A week later, Saudi King Abdullah gathered world leaders at the United Nations as part of a dialogue he launched with a conference of faith leaders in Madrid last July.

        Christianity and Islam are the world's two largest faiths, with two billion and 1.3 billion followers respectively. The latest interfaith efforts are meant to counter growing tensions between these two after the Sept. 11 attacks.

        An Indian prelate, speaking after the Mumbai attacks began, said in Rome that a lack of courage to meet across faith lines was often behind religious violence in his country.

        Archbishop Felix Machado of Nashik diocese, just east of Mumbai, told Italian priests the violence was caused by "inequality, a lack of justice and understanding and, above all, a lack of courage to dialogue," the Vatican daily reported. (Vatican thanks Muslims for returning God to Europe.)

         

    "Interreligious dialogue rallies all who are on the path to God or to the Absolute"? This is not what the Catholic Church teaches":

        From a purely objective point of view, regardless of the doctrinal teaching professed by Mohammedans and Catholics, it is evident that Almighty God is the God over both. God exists. His existence is not dependent on the acknowledgement of mankind that He exists. Nor is God's existence dependent upon any religion. He is the Creator and the Providence of the Universe: the whole of creation, the entire cosmos, of all existing things, whether they be angels, human beings, animals or plants, animate or inanimate. He is also the Savior and the Judge of the living and the dead, having redeemed mankind and must judge Catholics and Mohammedans, believers and atheists. Their god is but another strange god. On every essential point concerning the true God and the nature of the true God, the Mohammedan belief radically and seriously conflicts with the established and revealed Dogma of the Catholic Church.

        Subjectively:

        Again from a purely subjective thinking the Muslims might think and believe with a firm confidence that they are worshiping the true God, "Allah" yet the reality is quite the contrary as objectively speaking we can only affirm the contrary. This point is clear from Scripture "Whosoever does not continue in the doctrine of Christ does not have God". - II St. Jn 1:9

        The teaching and the beliefs of Catholicism and Mohammedanism are different and contrary. Their concept of, and their approach to God, diverge and conflict. Catholics indeed accept as dogmatic truth the Holy Trinity, the Incarnation and the Divinity of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Moslems vehemently and vociferously deny the Blessed Trinity [2], the Incarnation [3], the Crucifixion of our Divine Lord and the Divinity of Christ [4]. The Mohammedans have such a carnal notion of heaven that St. Alphonsus did not hesitate to declare "The Mohammedan Paradise, is only fit for beasts; for filthy sensual pleasure is all the believer has to expect there." [5]

        The Catholic and Christian God is 'The Trinity,' and our Lord Jesus Christ, the second Person of that Trinity, is the Creator and One true and merciful God. Despite monotheistic appearances, we do not have the same God; we do not have the same mediator. How then can it be that " together with us they (The Moslems) adore the one, merciful God." [6] This is incredible!

        The Catholic Teaching: "Without faith it is impossible to please God." - Heb. 11:6

        Mohammedans are infidels for "broadly speaking, infidels are those who do not possess the true faith; while in the strict sense infidels are the un-baptized"[7]. They are divided into monotheists (Jews and Moslems), polytheists (Hindus, Buddhists, etc.), and atheists.

        From a Catholic perspective the Islamic worship is another form of false worship given to a "strange god" for as we read in scripture "All the gods of the Nations are Idols" - I Para 16:26

        It would be blasphemous to declare that these false religions are the working of God. On the Contrary ''all faithful disciples of Jesus Christ well know that the false religions are only instruments of the devil to deceive souls and place them beyond Salvation" - [8a]

        Pope Pius X long ago put forward that the modernist if they take logically there doctrine, would have no grounds for denying the Muslims there "experience" of " god" as being just as valid as that of another "believer" and hence he states:

        "Here it is well to note at once that, given this doctrine of experience united with that of symbolism, every religion, even that of paganism, must be held to be true. What is to prevent such experiences from being found in any religion? In fact, that they are so is maintained by not a few. On what grounds can Modernists deny the truth of an experience affirmed by a follower of Islam? [8b]

        What a prophetic insight, Pope Pius X was so accurate that not even the Modernist came to deny what he stated, but only affirm the above with great audacity.

        The Baltimore Catechism (No. 3) states as follows:

        Q. 1148. How do we offer God false worship?

        A. We offer God false worship by rejecting the religion He has instituted and following one pleasing to ourselves, with a form of worship He has never authorized, approved or sanctioned.

        Islam clearly comes under the notion of false worship that (objectively speaking) is not render to God.

        The psalmist tells us that "All the Gods of the Gentiles are Devils" (Psalm 96:5) and hence to whom do they render their worship? The Scriptures tell us clearly " They provoked him by strange gods, and stirred him up to anger, with their abominations. They sacrificed to devils and not to God: to gods whom they knew not: that were newly come up, whom their fathers worshipped not. " (Deut 32:16- 17 Cf. also Baruch 4:7)

        They "sacrificed to devils and not to God" - regardless of whether or not they might have believed they were rendering homage to the True God, the reality is quite the contrary! It is an erroneous proposition to qualify a prayer addressed to the devil as authentic prayer.

        Islam is a false Religion. A false religion is any non-Christian religion "in so far as it is not the religion that God revealed and wants to see practiced. Moreover, every non-Catholic Christian sect is false in so far as it neither accepts nor faithfully practices the entire content of Revelation." [9]

        Christ tells us who the true worshipers shall be: "But the hour cometh and now is, when the true adorers shall adore the Father in spirit and in truth." (Jn. 4:23).

        These words go directly against the terminology now used by the modernist hierarchy. They speak from a subjective position wishing to dogmatize and "opinion" which goes directly against the mind of the Church on this point.

        This religious subjectivism, which she has always condemned under the names of indifferentism or latitudinarianism, and which "seeks to justify itself under the pretended claims of liberty, failing to recognize the rights of objective truth which are made manifest either by the lights of reason or by Revelation." [10]

        This subjectivism only leads to that Religious indifferentism, which is "one of the most deleterious heresies" and which "places all religions on an equal footing," inevitably leads one to consider the truth of religious belief as merely a matter of utility for a well-regulated life.... "One ends by considering religion as an entirely individual thing which can be adapted to the dispositions of each one, letting everyone form his own personal religion, and by concluding that all the religions are good even though they contradict each other." [11]

        The Church is not concerned with the subjective dispositions of men. This is for God to Judge. The Church is concerned with objective facts. Her judgments are objective. Pope St. Pius X, for this reason declared that "those who die as infidels are damned." [11a]

        1907 “In answer to a question as to whether Confucius could have been saved,wrote:’It is not allowed to affirm that Confucius was saved. Christians, when interrogated, must answer that those who die as infidels are damned.’ ”

        Revelation is a reality, a fact, a truth accredited by God by sure signs. This revelation of God can in no way be placed on the same footing as those erroneous beliefs of infidels. We may say that the Mohammedans worship a false god, the god of their own making, which a deviation from the right worship of the true God.

        Further we might rightly ask with St. Paul, "How then shall they call upon Him in whom they have not believed?" - Rom 10: 14

        Although the modern terminology used might not seem to be "explicitly heretical" in nevertheless leads one down this path to apostasy. This vague terminology, which has been employed to put forward an erroneous notion of the faith so that we may be deceived along the path of syncretism. Yves Marsaudon, in his book Ecumenism as seen by a Traditional Freemason, commented favorably on the ecumenism that was nurtured at Vatican II. He said:

        "Catholics and especially the conservatives must not forget that all roads lead to God. And they will have to accept that this courageous idea of free-thinking, which we can really call a revolution, pouring forth from our Masonic lodges has spread magnificently over the dome of Saint Peter’s." [12]

        This is precisely path of deception to which the enemies of the Church hope to direct her. For this reason St. Pius X, who could see where this disorientation in precise terminology was leading, required every would-be Catholic priest to recite the following words at the feet of his Ordinary:

        "I condemn and reject premises from which it follows that dogmas are either false or doubtful". [13]

        The Council of Florence, clearly sets down the four notes of heresy as follows:

        1) a pertinacious adherence to teachings expressly contradictory to that which has been defined by the Church;

        2) an opinion opposed to a doctrine not explicitly defined by the Church nor clearly proposed dogmatically as an article of Faith;

        3) a proposition that, although not directly contradictory to the Faith, nonetheless necessarily entails logical consequences against it; and

        4) a speculation which reaches a certain degree of probability of being against the Faith.

        The Modernist's in using these subjective terms to formulate their erroneous notions that "We together with the Muslims worship the same God" go directly against the above statements of the Council of Florence. This formulation works directly against the Churches dogma "Outside the Church there is No Salvation" [14]

        Pope Leo XIII, affirms in his encyclical "Satis Cognitum": "Nothing is more dangerous than the heretics who, while conserving almost all the remainder of the Church's teaching intact, corrupt with a single word, like a drop of poison, the purity and the simplicity of the faith which we have received through tradition from God and through the Apostles."

        Although it is true to say that the reason that those outside the Church are not saved is not purely because they worship a false 'god' nevertheless there is still a clear connection. When Christ states, "No one comes to the Father but through me" (Jn. 14:6), this precisely means, if you don't posses Christ, you can't posses the Father (God) for Christ is that door to the Father. Hence without Christ there is no salvation from God. The relation is evident. Again this is confirmed by St. Irenaeus who wrote, "Thus, without the Holy Spirit, we cannot see the Word of God; and without the Son no one can go to the Father." [15a]

        The only authentic prayer is true prayer addressed to the true God. Pope Leo XIII declares without hesitation that "the fitting and devout worship of God, which is to be found chiefly in the divine sacrifice and in the dispensation of the sacraments, as well as salutary laws and discipline . . . The (Catholic) Church alone offers to the human race that religion" [15b]

        Pope Pius XI declares the same saying that "In her (the Catholic Church) alone is Christ believed with a faith whole and entire, worshiped with sincere homage of adoration, and loved with the constant flame of ardent Charity" [15c]

        What happened to the 1st Commandment?

        I am the Lord thy God...Thou shalt not have strange gods before me....Thou shalt not adore them, nor serve them..." (Ex. 20:2-5).

        If all religions worship the true God by simply claiming to be doing so, then one could not violate the 1st Commandment since all worship of any “god” would be tantamount to worshiping the true "God" according to the post the modernist element in the hierarchy, yet this would not only render the 1st Commandment obsolete but make it seem as though God had given us and absurd command. God does not command anything in vain.

        The first commandment is not optional. A man cannot worship in any way that which he does not believe in, for the Law of Praying determines the law of believing, and vice-versa. If Mohammedans believe in a one-person deity, that is what they worship, and in no way can we logically argue that they worship with us the Holy Trinity.

        We are not unfamiliar with the notion that claims that they implicitly worship the trinity, yet we cannot maintain this from an objective stand point for the simple reason that we can not hold that one worships implicitly what he explicitly rejects.

        In our day and age it is often too easily forgotten that all non-Catholic worship is offensive to God and clearly violates the first commandment. This is because the "first commandment may be broken by giving to a creature the honor which belongs to God alone or by false worship." [16a]

        The Church has always regarded the worship of Non Catholics as mere acts of superstitions since "there are four kinds of superstition, namely, illegitimate worship of the true God, idolatry, divination, and superstitious practices. The first consists in a false worship, though applied to the living God; for instance, if you worship Him (God) according to the Mosaic law, which is contrary to all the precepts of the Gospel; or if you adopt a new religion in opposition to the doctrine if the universal Church." [16b] Hence it is clear that "any public worship of the true God, outside the Catholic Church constitutes a superstitious worship of God as no other Church is authorized to give public worship to God. [16c]

        Religion has an intellectual foundation, that is, it is based on knowledge. To be true religion its basis must be truth. The basis must be true both speculatively and practically. In other words, true religion must be based on a correct knowledge of God as existing and worthy of all honor, and of the manner and obligation of worshipping Him. On the other hand,
    "I receive Thee, redeeming Prince of my soul. Out of love for Thee have I studied, watched through many nights, and exerted myself: Thee did I preach and teach. I have never said aught against Thee. Nor do I persist stubbornly in my views. If I have ever expressed myself erroneously on this Sacrament, I submit to the judgement of the Holy Roman Church, in obedience of which I now part from this world."

    "How doth the city sit solitary that was full of people! how is the mistress of the Gentiles become as a widow: the princes of provinces made tributary!  Weeping she hath wept in the night, and her tears are on her cheeks: there is none to comfort her among all them that were dear to her: all her friends have despised her, and are become her enemies.  Juda hath removed her dwelling place because of her affliction, and the greatness of her bondage: she hath dwelt among the nations, and she hath found no rest: all her persecutors have taken her in the midst of straits. . The ways of Sion mourn, because there are none that come to the solemn feast: all her gates are broken down: her priests sigh: her virgins are in affliction, and she is oppressed with bitterness.  Her adversaries are become her lords, her enemies are enriched: because the Lord hath spoken against her for the multitude of her iniquities: her children are led into captivity: before the face of the oppressor.

    I understand that we cannot not judge his subjective culpability and we do not know if he is sincere or not and what led him on that path but If he were my son I would disown him until he returned to the Catholic Faith.  It is that simple.  I would not want to affirm him in his errors and meet my Maker with that guilt on my soul.

        The psalmist tells us that "All the Gods of the Gentiles are Devils" (Psalm 96:5)

    ...
    Vivat Christus Rex! Viva Cristo Rey!



    The chapter referenced ("96") is the protestant version.  

    The Catholic and Douay-Rheims version is found in Psalm 95 verse 5 (or, Ps. xcv. 5):


    5 For all the gods of the Gentiles are devils: but the Lord made the heavens.   
    Quoniam omnes dii Gentium dæmonia: Dominus autem cælos fecit.




    These two propositions might seem unrelated at first glance but the Haydock Commentary leaves no confusion in the mind:

    Devils. Heb. elilim, "diminutive gods, (H.) nothings, (C.) vain things." Mont. 1 Par. --- We have idols, as Prot. read here. These were in fact, either devils, or vain imaginations of men. S. Paul says, we know that an idol is nothing in the world. (1 Cor. viii. 4). They cannot claim self-existence, and if the true God were not to support those creatures, the sun, &c. which have been the objects of adoration, they would presently cease to be. H. --- This most plausible species of idolatry is therefore refuted, since the Lord made the heavens. C. --- The Creator alone can be considered as God; the devils prompt the people to adore other things. W. --- It would appear but a small praise for the Lord to be feared above all gods, (H.) if they were "nothing." Hence the Sept.* have used the word devils, to signify that these potent, but maleficent beings, which the pagans adored, were infinitely beneath God, and worse than nothing. Bert.

    *Sept. = Septuagint scriptures


    Regarding the underlined text, "if the true God were not to support those creatures, the sun, &c. which have been the objects of adoration, they would presently cease to be," a more recent book by Frank Sheed, Theology and Sanity (1946), develops this theme fairly well.  

    In Chapter 1, Sheed says:

    Quote from: Frank Sheed

    ...[The Church] sees all things whatsoever held in existence from moment to moment by nothing but the continuing will of God that they should not cease to be.  When she sees anything at all, in the same act she sees God holding it in existence... In the sudden realization of this particular truth, there is something quite peculiarly shattering.  There are truths of religion immeasurably mightier in themselves, and the realization of any one of them might well make the heart miss a beat.  But this one goes to the very essence of what we are, and goes there almost with the effect of annihilation... God used no material in our creation;  we are made of nothing.  [The whole lie of the Revolution that man is the measure of all things, is destroyed in this one axiom.]  The first effect of realizing that one is made of nothing is a kind of panic-stricken insecurity.  One looks round for some more stable thing to clutch, and in this matter none of the beings of our experience are any more stable than we, for at the origin of them all is the same truth:  all are made of nothing.  
    ...

    In short, the truth that God used no material in our making carries with it the not-sufficiently-realized truth the God continues to hold us in being, and that unless He did so, we should simply cease to be.

    (from p. 23 - 24)


    Elsewhere, Sheed goes on to say that we, as contingent beings, rely entirely on God for our existence, and we therefore owe to God alone that adoration that enemies of God give to other created things, such as the sun, the stars, the cosmos, or animals, the earth, whales, four footed or creeping things, or even trees or things made from trees (wood) or minerals (stone, gemstones, sculpture).  The First Commandment is all about this.  Strange gods are these created things, which are not God, and God will have none of them before Him.  

    5 For all the gods of the Gentiles are devils: but the Lord made the heavens.   
    Quoniam omnes dii Gentium dæmonia: Dominus autem cælos fecit.

    Thanks for the clarification.  Psalm 95 is one of my favorites!
    "I receive Thee, redeeming Prince of my soul. Out of love for Thee have I studied, watched through many nights, and exerted myself: Thee did I preach and teach. I have never said aught against Thee. Nor do I persist stubbornly in my views. If I have ever expressed myself erroneously on this Sacrament, I submit to the judgement of the Holy Roman Church, in obedience of which I now part from this world."

    Quote from: Ladislaus
    Pray for Jorge Bergoglio.  What if he were your son?  Somewhere along the line he was led astray, yet there but for the grace of God had we ourselves gone.



    I understand that we cannot not judge his subjective culpability and we do not know if he is sincere or not and what led him on that path but If he were my son I would disown him until he returned to the Catholic Faith.  It is that simple.  I would not want to affirm him in his errors and meet my Maker with that guilt on my soul.  


    It isn't about whether he's in error or not.  Obviously I believe that he is, or otherwise I would not be a Traditional Catholic.  It's about the bitterness that accompanies all the Drolesky stuff.  I'm tired of the derision and the bitter zeal.  It's very easy to depersonalize someone, so I posted the picture to remind us that Jorge Bergoglio is a soul created in the image and likeness of God, someone for whom Our Lord died on the cross.

  • When Francis spoke about how in Confession it isn't some magic formula whereby we just say some words, say we're sorry, and the sins go away ... but rather that we are putting our sins on Our Lord and He takes them for us and suffers on account of them.  I thought of it this way during my last confession, and it bore great fruit in my soul vis-à-vis engendering true contrition.  These sins just don't disappear; Our Lord takes them upon Himself and offers His suffering on the cross so that we might be forgiven.  Yet several people here excoriated him for those statements ... just because they're always trying to find fault with him.  Where we must find fault, we must find fault ... but we have to avoid the tendency to be constantly LOOKING for these faults and then almost reveling in them when we find them.

    Francis is not some devil incarnate; there are some things he says or does that we can all learn from.  And, in return, we should be praying for him, rather than constantly spouting venom.  It's that venom which turns people off to sedevacantism.  It's why, despite the fact that I believe it most likely that the Holy See is vacant, I'd much rather go to an SSPX Mass than a sedevacantist one.  I have sensed bitter zeal in pretty much every sedevacantist chapel that I've ever attended.  I avoid them like the plague whenever I have any other acceptable alternative.

  • Francis clearly expresses devotion to Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament, to Our Lady, to St. Therese (among others).  He clearly believes in hell and that people go there (cf. his latest talk about the mafia).

    I've only found one  theological / doctrinal failing in him, namely that he does not believe in EENS.  But, for that matter, I find the exact same fault in many of those here on CI.  And if you are Catholics despite your opinions on the subject, then I don't see how he wouldn't be a Catholic.  You and he, LoT, basically hold the same opinion about EENS.

    Until we unite behind the root cause of the great apostasy we will continue to engage in petty fights as Satan wants.  The killer of souls is on the lose and we cannot pretend he isn't in order to be "nice".  What brush strokes would you have us use to describe Satan's biggest agent?

  • There's a difference between standing up firmly for the faith and being uncharitable.  I'm not talking about "niceness" but about fraternal charity.  Derision, name-calling, and bitterness are not compatible with fraternal charity.

    Yes, you guys won't admit the "root cause" of the modern apostasy, EENS-denial.

    I know I can't get in a rational conversation with you but for the sake of the others.  The root cause of the apostasy is that a majority of people accept an apostate heretic as head of the Roman Catholic Church.  This whole website is the result of their being no Pope, people claiming to be Catholic debating issues a real Pope would settle and trying to figure out how to deny that a heretic is a heretic or admit that a heretic can be Pope.  Wake me up when you start to get it.  :sleep:
