YIELDS TO PAPAL PRESSURE Declaring Good Friday A Public
At the insistence of the Pope, Cuba's
communist government has decreed that Good Friday this year will
be a public holiday. Less than 10% of the Cuban population are
practicing Catholics, and the government has not yet decided
whether or not the holiday will apply next year. (BBC)
The church took the pagan
philosophy and made it the buckler of faith against the
heathen. She took the pagan, Roman Pantheon, temple of all the
gods, and made it sacred to all the martyrs; so it stands to
this day. She took the pagan Sunday and made it the Christian
Sunday. She took the pagan Easter and made it the feast we
celebrate during this season.
... There is, in truth,
something royal, kingly about the sun, making it a fit emblem
of Jesus, the Sun of Justice. Hence the church in these
countries would seem, to have said, "Keep that old, pagan
name. It shall remain consecrated, sanctified." And thus the
pagan Sunday, dedicated to Balder, became the Christian
Sunday, sacred to Jesus. —— PASCHALE GAUDIUM, by William L. Gildea, D.D.,

Pope Benedict Declares the
to be the living Ark of the Covenant!
In the first reading, we heard: "then God's
temple in heaven was opened, and the ark of the covenant was
seen within the temple" (Revelation 11:19). What is the
significance of the ark? What does it appear to be? For the
Old Testament, it is the symbol of the presence of God in
the midst of his people. But now the symbol has given way to
reality. Thus the New Testament tells us that the true ark
of the covenant is a living and concrete person: it is the
Virgin Mary. God does not dwell in a piece of furniture, God
dwells in a person, in a heart: Mary, she who bore in her
womb the Eternal Son of God made man, Jesus Our Lord and
Savior. ― Benedict XVI, homily for the feast of the
Assumption of Mary, August 15, 2011, Zenit.
The New Testament says absolutely
nothing about Mary being taken up to heaven, nor does it in
any way make any parallels between Mary and the Ark of the
Sanctuary of God in heaven. See Worship
of the Virgin Mary.
The Ark of the Covenant seen in the heavenly temple of God in
Rev. 11:19 IS very important. What Covenant? The Covenant of
the 10 Commandments of God, by which all humanity will be
judged. Inscribed on 2 tables of stone in that Ark is a
Commandment that the Roman Catholic Church has presumptuously
attempted to change on its own authority, without a "thus
sayeth the Lord." This blasphemous usurpation of authority was
foretold by the prophet Daniel, 7:25, and when a Sunday law is
enforced, it will be the "Mark of the Beast."

Pope Blames Private
Interpretation of Bible Prophecy For Disunity.
"Too often those who are not Christians, as
they observe the splintering of Christian communities, are
understandably confused about the Gospel message itself.
Fundamental Christian beliefs and practices are sometimes
changed within communities by so-called “prophetic actions”
that are based on a hermeneutic not always consonant with the
datum of Scripture and Tradition. Communities consequently
give up the attempt to act as a unified body, choosing instead
to function according to the idea of “local options”.
Somewhere in this process the need for diachronic koinonia
— communion with the Church in every age — is lost, just
at the time when the world is losing its bearings and needs a
persuasive common witness to the saving power of the Gospel
(cf. Rom 1:18-23)." — Benedict

POPE BENDS UNDER PRESSURE
TRIDENTINE RITE'S LATIN PRAYER FOR THE JEWS.
Text of the old prayer which dates back to
Oremus et pro perfidis Judaeis: ut Deus et
Dominus noster auferat velamen de cordibus eorum; ut et ipsi
agnoscant Iesum Christum, Dominum nostrum. Omnipotens,
sempiterne Deus, qui etiam iudaicam perfidiam a tua
misericordia non repellis: exaudi preces nostras, quas pro
illius populi obcaecatione deferimus; ut, agnita veritatis
tuae luce, quae Chistus est, a suis tenebris erantur.
[Let us pray also for the faithless Jews:
that God and our Lord may lift the veil from their hearts;
that they too may acknowledge Jesus Christ as our Lord.
Almighty, eternal God, Who dost not bar even the faithlessness
of the Jews from Thy mercy: hear our prayers, which we offer
for the blindness of that people; in order that when they have
acknowledged the light of Thy truth, which is Christ, they may
be delivered from their darkness.]
It is worth noting that when Pope Pius V
issued the Latin Tridentine Mass in 1570, he declared it
completely irreformable in perpetuity, in QUO
"We specifically command each and every patriarch,
administrator, and all other persons or whatever
ecclesiastical dignity they may be, be they even cardinals of
the Holy Roman Church, or possessed of any other rank or
pre-eminence, ... they must not in celebrating Mass presume to
introduce any ceremonies or recite any prayers other than
those contained in this Missal."
... "We likewise declare and ordain that no one whosoever is
forced or coerced to alter this Missal, and that this present
document cannot be revoked or modified, but remain always
valid and retain its full force."
"I am delighted to present my latest bookIn
of Israel. This book will expose the sins of the
fathers and the vicious abuse of the Jewish people. In
Defense of Israel will shake Christian theology. It
scripturally proves that the Jewish people as a whole did not
reject Jesus as Messiah. It will also prove that Jesus did not come to earth to
be the Messiah. It will prove that there
was a Calvary conspiracy between Rome, the high priest, and
Herod to execute Jesus as an insurrectionist too dangerous to
live. Since Jesus
refused by word and deed to claim to be the Messiah,
how can the Jews be blamed for rejecting what was never
offered? Read it in this shocking expose, In
Defense of Israel." — John
1 John 2:22 Who is a liar but he that
denieth that Jesus is the Christ? [G5547]

12. ... "if a non-Catholic Christian, for reasons of
conscience and having been convinced of Catholic truth, asks
to enter into the full communion of the Catholic Church, this
is to be respected as the work of the Holy Spirit and as an
expression of freedom of conscience and of religion. In such a
case, it would not be a question of proselytism in the
negative sense that has been attributed to this term."
