Freebie Downloads Deleted

I just upgraded features to WordPress, and unfortunately, all of my freebie downloads which I had added to my pages have been deleted.  This includes the most popular crochet altar lace pattern, and the Catholic-themed Spanish worksheets.  I don’t know when I can restore these files.   For me, it is a time-consuming process, and time is something which I seem to have less of these days.  Eventually, though….I hope!

Explosive Admission by Cardinal Danneels

The author of the following article has asked that it be disseminated far and wide.  Share it with others, let everyone know.

“At the launch of the book [his biography, Cardinal Godfried Danneels] in Brussels this week, the cardinal said he was part of a secret club of cardinals opposed to Pope Benedict XVI.

“He called it a “mafia” club that bore the name of St. Gallen. The group wanted a drastic reform of the Church, to make it “much more modern”, and for Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio to head it. The group, which also comprised Cardinal Walter Kasper and the late Jesuit Cardinal Carlo Maria Martini, has been documented in Austen Ivereigh’s biography of Pope Francis, The Great Reformer.

“Rod Dreher has picked up the story at The American Conservative, and he emphasizes the importance of the fact that ‘Pentin got his hands on a copy of the authorized repeat, authorized — biography’ – and that this is where the information is coming from, not some anonymous source.

“Marco Tosatti, the Senior Religion Correspondent for the the Italian daily, La Stampa, also did a story on this yesterday, which has now been translated by the good folks at Rorate Caeli:

The election of Jorge Bergoglio was the fruit of secret meetings that cardinals and bishops, organized by Carlo Maria Martini, held for years at St. Gall in Switzerland. This is what is claimed by Jürgen Mettepenningen and Karim Schelkens, the authors of a just published biography of the Belgian Cardinal Godfried Danneels, who refer to the group of cardinals and bishops as the “Mafiaclub”.

Danneels, according to the authors, had worked for years in preparation for the election of Pope Francis, which happened in 2013. He himself, however, in a video recorded during the presentation of the book admits that he had taken part in a secret club of cardinals that were in opposition to Joseph Ratzinger. While laughing he calls it “a Mafia club whose name was St. Gall”.

The group wanted a drastic reform of the Church, much more modern and up to date, with Jorge Bergoglio as Pope Francis at the head. And this is just as things turned out. In addition to Danneels and Martini, among the others who made up the group according to the book were the Dutch bishop Adriaan Van Luyn, the German cardinals Walter Kasper and Karl Lehman, the Italian cardinal AchilleSilvestrini and the English cardinal Basil Hume.

The Belgian newspaper “Le Vif” wrote: “ On March 13, 2013, an old acquaintance was at the side of the new Pope, Francis: Godfried Danneels. Officially he stood there in his role as the dean of the cardinal-priests, but actually he had operated for years in secret as the king-maker.”

Danneels has been invited again by Pope Francis to attend the Synod on the Family that will take place in October in Rome. But he has been severely criticized. He tried to dissuade a victim of sexual abuse from accusing the man who abused him, a bishop, who was the uncle of the victim, and because of this, at the time of the Conclave in 2013 there were those in Belgium who asked that he not be allowed to elect the new Pope.

In addition, his positions on homosexual marriage and on abortion, (according to the revelations of two parliamentarians Danneels had written to the king of Belgium urging him to sign the law that permitted it) does not seem to be in harmony with the Magisterium of the Church. And not in harmony as well with what Pope Francis affirms.

Think of the implications –  not only for the excommunication of Danneels, bur also for the canonical standing of the present pope.

“Excommunication is the penalty for collusion and conspiracy to elect a given candidate. This is serious business. It is astonishing that even someone as brazen as Cardinal Daneels would admit to doing so openly, and on the record.”

For the full story as it appears at IPeter5:

Note: We here at Kankakee Latin Mass had posted the article – Intrigue at the Papal Conclave,  over two years ago.   But then we didn’t know the Cardinal’s name!

Papal Speech At The White House

The media cannot be accused of distorting Francis’ words.  Here is the text of his speech delivered at the White House.  Note that the only “authoritative” citations he gives are  “wooly” sentiments from his Laudato Si letter.    This is a speech which could very well come from the mouth of the Dalai lama.

September 23, 2015

Mr. President,

 I am deeply grateful for your welcome in the name of all Americans.  As the son of an immigrant family, I am happy to be a guest in this country, which was largely built by such families.  I look forward to these days of encounter and dialogue, in which I hope to listen to, and share, many of the hopes and dreams of the American people.

 During my visit I will have the honor of addressing Congress, where I hope, as a brother of this country, to offer words of encouragement to those called to guide the nation’s political future in fidelity to its founding principles.  I will also travel to Philadelphia for the Eighth World Meeting of Families, to celebrate and support the institutions of marriage and the family at this, a critical moment in the history of our civilization.

Mr. President, together with their fellow citizens, American Catholics are committed to building a society which is truly tolerant and inclusive, to safeguarding the rights of individuals and communities, and to rejecting every form of unjust discrimination.  With countless other people of good will, they are likewise concerned that efforts to build a just and wisely ordered society respect their deepest concerns and their right to religious liberty.  That freedom remains one of America’s most precious possessions.  And, as my brothers, the United States Bishops, have reminded us, all are called to be vigilant, precisely as good citizens, to preserve and defend that freedom from everything that would threaten or compromise it.

Mr. President, I find it encouraging that you are proposing an initiative for reducing air pollution.  Accepting the urgency, it seems clear to me also that climate change is a problem which can no longer be left to a future generation.  When it comes to the care of our “common home”, we are living at a critical moment of history.  We still have time to make the changes needed to bring about “a sustainable and integral development, for we know that things can change” (Laudato Si’, 13).  Such change demands on our part a serious and responsible recognition not only of the kind of world we may be leaving to our children, but also to the millions of people living under a system which has overlooked them.  Our common home has been part of this group of the excluded which cries out to heaven and which today powerfully strikes our homes, our cities and our societies.  To use a telling phrase of the Reverend Martin Luther King, we can say that we have defaulted on a promissory note and now is the time to honor it.

We know by faith that “the Creator does not abandon us; he never forsakes his loving plan or repents of having created us.  Humanity still has the ability to work together in building our common home” (Laudato Si’, 13).  As Christians inspired by this certainty, we wish to commit ourselves to the conscious and responsible care of our common home.

The efforts which were recently made to mend broken relationships and to open new doors to cooperation within our human family represent positive steps along the path of reconciliation, justice and freedom.  I would like all men and women of good will in this great nation to support the efforts of the international community to protect the vulnerable in our world and to stimulate integral and inclusive models of development, so that our brothers and sisters everywhere may know the blessings of peace and prosperity which God wills for all his children.

Mr. President, once again I thank you for your welcome, and I look forward to these days in your country.  God bless America!

Francis’s Fortune Cookies of Apostasy

“Hence, too, that meaning of the sacred dogmas is ever to be maintained which has once been declared by Holy mother Church, and there must never be any abandonment of this sense under the pretext or in the name of a more profound understanding.” (Infallible declaration, Dogmatic Council, Vatican I)

fortune cookie

Our local newspaper, the Daily Journal, in its September 19 edition, carried a feature story about Pope Francis in which four Catholics, known to me, were interviewed. These four included three elderly ladies and a retired priest who not too long ago, was pastor of the parish I once attended.  It was no surprise to me that those four applaud Francis’s (in the expression of George Will) “woolly sentiments that have the intellectual tone of fortune cookies.”

For over 2,000 years, the Church founded by our Divine Lord, has issued papal documents such as Apostolic Constitutions, encyclicals, and motu propios, to expound upon, and to teach faith and morals to the faithful, never to give opinions on scientific matters, or to introduce a novelty completely foreign to the deposit of Faith: “For the Holy Spirit was promised to the successors of Peter not so that they might, by his revelation, make known some new doctrine, but that, by his assistance, they might religiously guard and faithfully expound the revelation or deposit of faith transmitted by the apostles.” (Dogmatic constitution on the Church of Christ, Vatican I)

To disseminate opinions by a pope who uses the trappings of his office, is misleading and dangerous to Catholics as well as to others who trust in the moral judgments of a vicar of Christ.

The newspaper touts the ladies interviewed as being the most active in the parish, and I have no doubt they are because the orthodox-believing parishioners, among them younger people, and several homeschooling families, left long ago. What remains is a dying parish which has had to eliminate Masses; seen a drastic decline in membership; shares a pastor with two other churches in a necessary merger; no longer houses its own Religious Education program; can’t seem to recruit sufficient altar boys, or even girls, to serve at the altar.  Need I say more? It’s a dying parish, and these interviewees are giddy over the prospect of an accelerated pace of destruction for the church they believe themselves to love!

Lady 87 year old: “Participation by women in the church was limited to ‘cleaning the church.’ ”

“She has seen divorcees and gay people shunned by the church, and particularly, in the latter case…and it has troubled her… ‘I approve of everything he [Francis] is doing going forward’, she [87 year old] said.”

Lady 76 years old: “I am 10 times deeper in my faith.”

Lady 80 years old: “…she believes the attitude of passing judgment and taking punitive action toward those who violate various tenements [sic] of the faith is not what the church was built on.”

“[She] is most concerned by ‘not taking care of the planet…Very quietly he [Francis] will win out’, she said.”

Priest 75 about years old: “God is the only one who doesn’t get upset with our rejecting [H]im”, he said.

Priest:  “It’s in the scripture….When people reject [H]im we’re supposed to work it out,” he continued. “Instead we go to war.”

To this priest I would remind him of our Lady of Fatima’s sorrowful lamentation – and warning of the dire consequences both temporal and eternal if people do not stop offending God:  “Do not offend the Lord our God any more, for He is already too much offended!”  and “You have seen hell where the souls of poor sinners go…”

Scripture also tells us that Christ, the Stone – the solid foundation of right faith which is rejected by unbelievers will become the stumbling stone of perdition for them, “For there is no other name under heaven given to men, whereby we must be saved.”

What Christian in his right mind, especially a Catholic priest, can publicly state that God “doesn’t get upset” when he is rejected? This priest knows nothing of the sufferings of our Redeemer and God, our Lord Jesus Christ! He cannot possible fathom the bitter sorrows of his most loving Heart when He was rejected by His own people, and who continues to be rejected by many.  What hard and cold heart in this priest!

Fortunately, not all priests are like that. I do remember quite well the words of a previous pastor at the same church, my confessor at one time, a beautiful soul who expressed with his mouth what he held in his heart. He told me, “Christ died of a broken heart.”

When once referring to this true pastor of souls, Lady 87 once called him “weird” – for not getting with the times! Call it the lost generation, these ladies 76, 87 80 and the priest. Somewhere along the path, they lost their way, and Francis is giving them a false sense of security as well as assurance for continuing along a crooked bend instead of the straight and narrow road delineated by Divine Revelation.

I would remind those four, and others like them, that fortune cookies carry no dogmatic weight whatsoever;  not even if cooked up by a pope.

“Hold firmly that our faith is identical with that of the ancients. Deny this, and you dissolve the unity of the Church.” – St. Thomas Aquinas

Latest CMP Video Exposing PP’s Sale of Body Parts

Pray for an end to abortion.   The greatest evil confronting this nation is  not unemployment or even illegal immigration.  It is the slaughter of its innocent children made even more ghoulish and Satanic by the tagging of their tiny, bloodied body parts with dollar signs.

Such people who participate in this horrific evil  are a disgrace to their country.   Spiritually adopt an abortionist, and pray for his or her  conversion at every Mass at which you assist.

“From email black-outs to contorted oxymorons like ‘donation for remuneration,’ the lengths to which Planned Parenthood leadership will go to cover-up their illegal sale of aborted baby parts are nothing less than the desperation of a guilty conscience. Planned Parenthood CEO Cecile Richards openly admits they receive ‘$60 per tissue specimen,’ and their contracts with StemExpress offer payments per fetus ‘determined in the clinic to be usable.’ Planned Parenthood runs their abortion and baby parts business in open disregard for the law and should be prosecuted immediately….”

Diabolical Disorientation in The Highest Places

This is a video just posted on Youtube yesterday, Sept. 9, 20015.  It is a must watch.  Please share to do your part to alert others.

Listen to Cardinal Burke say it  was a shock to him.

“Society was not warned about what is happening and how to face up to it and not to submit to it all.”

“However, to the astonishment of observers, during the meeting the highest Church leaders discussed the issue of homosexuality.”

“Here we live in the times where there is a widespread and dominant crisis of the Church but not only the Church itself.”

“…contradict the divine Truth.”

Frère Michel de la Sainte Trinité, Words of Our Lady of Fatima

A few days ago while sorting through some old papers, I found an article I had clipped out of some periodical over 20 years ago. Unfortunately, I neglected to indicate from which periodical. The author is Frère Michel de la Sainte Trinité, a foremost authority on Fatima who had written several articles, plus three authoritative, well-researched volumes on the subject. Based on his research, he suggested that the Third Secret with the words of Our Lady which Sr. Lucia had written down read something like this:


“While in Portugal the dogma of the Faith will always be preserved, in many nations, perhaps in almost the whole world, the Faith will be lost. The pastors of the church will be gravely lacking in the duties of their charge. Through their fault, consecrated souls will let themselves be seduced by pernicious errors spread everywhere. It will be the time of the decisive combat between the Virgin and the devil. A wave of diabolical confusion will unfurl on the world. Satan will get into the highest summit of the Church. He will blind the minds, harden the hearts of Pastors. For God will have delivered them to themselves in punishment for their refusal to obey the requests of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. That will be the great Apostasy announced for the “last times”, the false lamb”, the “false prophet” betraying the Church to the benefit of the “Beast”, according to the prophecy of the Apocalypse. In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me, and she will be converted and a certain period of peace will be granted to the world.”

Keep an eye out and an ear open as the Synod on the Family convenes this coming October. I think Frère Michel was right on the money!

Diabolical Possession for the Greater Glory of God

Angel before francisOver on Fb I gave an English synopsis of a video in Spanish about the possession of Ángel, the man on this photo.  It is a fascinating account, so I thought I would share it with my blog readers.   At the conclusion of this post, you will find the video should anyone understanding Spanish, be interested in watching the entirety.   I didn’t watch the question and answer section because the whole video is rather lengthy.  Here is the summary:

The possessed man is Ángel, married with 3 children, living in Morelia, Mexico. He has been known to be a pious, practicing Catholic, a daily communicant.  He says his possession took place while traveling on a bus. He believes it was due to the envy of another; that an evil spell was cast upon him to see him dead.  This was in 1999.  Seven exorcisms have not been able to free him.

When he saw that Mexico City was going to attempt to legalize abortion, he offered his sufferings to God to avert it, or in reparation, if the “law” should pass.

In 2013, accompanied by Fr. Juan Rivas, he went to Rome with a letter of testimony from Cardinal Ortega, primate of Mexico. He was to see the exorcist Fr. Amorth; two days before meeting with Amorth, he was put in line with the sick who awaited the passing of the pope. It was then that Fr. Rivas whispered in the ear of the pope that numerous exorcists had tried to free the man, to no avail. The news media reported this as a failed exorcism, but it was not meant to be an exorcism.

Amorth did a formal exorcism two days later.  Normally, there are 3 days of fasting, much prayer, and other preparations before attempting an exorcism. The reporters asked Amorth what had happened.

Amorth said that there are there 4 demons inside of Angel who speak in Latin or Italian. They are in him as a consequence, and as a sign that nothing was done in Mexico when abortion was legalized, and therefore, because of abortion, violence has increased throughout Mexico; that there is a causal relationship between the two: For every aborted baby, there will be a mortality caused by organized crime.

Another exorcism over Ángel was made when the assembly of exorcists met, with one of them doing the exorcism, and the others present. (a year before this video presentation was made) ; a priest, one of the exorcists, wrote to Cardinal Ortega, telling him that the demons are saying that before the arrival of the Woman to those lands, human sacrifices were made there; that they – the devils – roamed there; that every human sacrifice, empowered them; that the Woman drove them out, but now, “you stupid people because of your laws, have brought us back. We didn’t want this [correlation of abortion to violence] to be made known, but the Woman crushes our head and makes us reveal it.”

Until the law of abortion is repealed, he, Ángel, will not be freed.

Through the demons, we know that the root of the evil situation in Mexico, is abortion; there is a correlation between abortion and violence; Abortion empowers the devils. Abortion is a grave transgression against God because it attacks the giver of life.

The speaker on this video mentions that by watching the videos, and seeing the pictures of the mutilated bodies of the victims of the drug cartel, it is obvious how they resemble the bloody, dismembered babies killed through abortion. The cartel mutilate and kill, just like the abortionist.

Countless people have contacted him – the speaker on this video – to ask what they can do to help repeal the abortion law.  As a consequence pro-lifers have been mobilized.

There are many abortions worldwide, in China, the U.S – why is it that this relation of cause/effect is taking place in Mexico? Because Mexico is where the Blessed Virgin lives. The blessed Mother is terribly offended that in Mexico where she lives, there are taking place thousands upon thousands of abortions.

How is it that the demons say these things? .  The Blessed Virgin makes them say it.

Four concrete steps have been taken to fight for the repeal of abortion in Mexico, and he names them. One of them is to mobilize the social elite who are pro-life, and to have them in the vanguard of marches, so that marches by the people will not be dismissed as processions by religious fanatics. He mentions reparation which our Lady wants. Monasteries and convents are being requested to aid with their prayers.

There is applause when the speakers states his belief that abortion will be repealed!
