In 1917 Our Lady of Fatima predicted that Russian Communism would spread her errors throughout the world. Our Lady also predicted that if the Holy Father consecrated Russia to Her Immaculate Heart, Russia would be converted. On March 25, 1984, Pope John Paul II and the bishops throughout the world consecrated Russia and the world to the IHM. This was exactly 100 years after the Vision of Pope Leo XIII when Satan was granted 100 years to try and destroy God's Church. Unity was the reason this consecration had to be done in a specific way, unity between the Bishops and the Pope, and unity between the people and their bishops. This sign of unity was a sign of obedience to the chain of command that God set up and what Communists wanted to turn upside down.
What happened after the Consecration on March 25.1984? Well,
- two months later, on the Feast of Fatima, May 13, an explosion in Severomorski destroyed 80% of Russia's missiles making them no longer a superpower, and then
- on Dec 13, 1984 an explosion in Siberia destroyed Russia's largest ammunition base. On Dec 19, 1984, Marshal Ustinov, the Minister of Defense, died or was killed.
- Three days later Marshal Sodolov, the 2nd Minister of Defense died. All this in nine months?
- In March of 1985 (one year after the consecration) President Chernenko died and Gorbachev was made President. He instituted glasnost and perestroika (freedom of the press and freedom of religion). This was the downfall of Communism. Fifteen republics were freed from communism as the Warsaw pact ended.
In 1989 Lucia said publicly that the Consecration was completed and that "God will keep His Word". That year on Nov 9, 1989 the Berlin Wall came down and Gorbachev met the Pope at the Vatican and promised religious freedom. The following year on the Feast of Fatima, May 13th, freedom of religion was made the law of Russia. On the feast of the miracle of Fatima, Oct 13th, Gorbachev received the Nobel Peace Prize. Two months later Gorbachev met the Pope in the Vatican for the 2nd time. In 1991 diplomatic relations with the Vatican and Russia were opened and so were Latin-rite churches for the first time.
May 1, 1991 was the 100th anniversary of the encyclical "On the Condition of Human Labor" by Pope Leo XII, and the Feast of St. Joseph, the Worker, and the end of May Day as a Communist holiday. On May 13, 1991 Pope John Paul II went to Fatima to thank Our Lady for all the countries that were freed, for saving his life, and for the end of the Communist threat to the world.
But on Aug 19, 1991 the Communists attempted to overthrow Gorbachev. They picked the wrong day for it was the 74th anniversary of the Aug. appearance at Fatima. On Aug 22 the attempt failed and the Communists were defeated. This was the Feast of the Queenship of Mary. Two months later, on Oct 13th (another feast of Fatima) the first Russian pilgrims went to Fatima. It was televised on 150 stations and 350 radio stations in Russia. Dec 8th was the start of the Commonwealth of republics, the end of the USSR. Twelve days later Yeltsin met with the Pope in Rome and 13 days after that on Christmas Day 1991 the Communist Flag came down for the last time over Russia
Gorbachev resigned and sent a letter to Pope John Paul II. Fifteen republics were freed from communism and on Dec 30th of 1991, Lucia wrote that the world will recognize that the defeat of Communism was by Mary. In 1992 another attempt was made to overthrow the government. Yeltsin stood against the entire Communist army and no one died. On March 14, 1992 Pravda ended. Then on Christmas day, 1992 Communism was declared illegal in Russia. Since March 24, 1984, 87 other dictatorships have fallen. For those of you (many of my best friends including some great priests whom I love) who do not believe that the consecration has been done correctly or needs to be done again, or are still waiting for the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, see the note at the end of this document. (Note "A")
WHERE HAVE THE COMMUNISTS GONE?
Yes! Communism is now illegal in Russia, but where have all the Communists gone? A Communist doesn't stop believing in a lifetime of brainwashing just because his country declared it illegal, anymore than a Catholic would stop believing in Christ if a Communist were to declare the Church to be illegal. In the diary of a KGB agent who infiltrated the Church and became a priest (code named "AA-1025), he writes of the master plan of the Communists way back in the 1930s. Their mission was to infiltrate the seminaries, the priesthood and even to become bishops. Their ultimate goal was to destroy the Church from within by confusing the constant teachings of the Church with ambiguous language and changing the Mass from a vertical worship of God to a horizontal cult of man . For instance, they replaced the precise word "charity" with the ambiguous word "love" and the word "Church" with the ambiguous "community". They planned to blur the lines between the priesthood and the laity by taking more and more of the functions of the priest and giving them to the lay man or woman. They eroded the concept of the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist by taking away all signs of respect and reverence in the Mass and in the churches themselves.
The Communists infiltrated the seminaries not just as priests but as professors and administrators. Once in positions of authority they pushed their own operatives through to become priests and encouraged homosexuals and pedophiles as well as men who had little faith to enter the seminaries. Before and during the Sixties they financed and promoted the writings of men and women whom they had seduced with error such as:Fr. Karl Rahner, Fr. Edward Schillebeeckx, Fr. Hans Kung, Fr. Raymond Brown, Sister Rosemary Ruther and the like. The book "Theological Investigations" by Edward Schillebeekx written in 1968 in forced Pope Paul VI to write the beautiful Encyclical "Mysterium Fidei" defending the Holy Eucharist, but "Theological Investigations" also became the tool of people like Hans Kung, Tad Goosy and Anthony Wilhelm. Anthony Wilhelm wrote "Christ Among Us" and the Communists placed 2,000,000 copies into the seminaries free of charge. The essential error of this book is that it denies the divinity of Christ. This book and its heresy was used effectively along with many other books to corrupted modern day priests. "This is my body" came to mean "embodiment in community" or "We are Christ.".
SECRET DOCUMENTS OF "RENEW"
In 1976 in the Archdiocese of Chicago, a group was formed called the "Internal Corporate Renewal Institute". From this group came what they called the "Parish Corporate Renewal Network". In Chicago they started with eight parishes. Out of this came "Call To Action". The same man who founded "Call To Action" founded the "RENEW Program". He was Archbishop Peter Gerety. The plan of the organizers of the "Internal Corporate Renewal Institute" is well known to us, since we have the original two secret documents exposing their plans. When one compares the master plan of RENEW and the master plan of Communist priest spy AA-1025, it is like reading the same document.
The secret Communist plan described by AA-1025 was to turn obedience upside down in order to destroy the Church and the Catholic family. To do this they called for the re-education (brain-washing) of the man in the pew. The Communists had already in place a plan for the bishops and priests, the key pin being a book called "Christ Among Us". By planting Communist moles into the seminaries as priest-professors they could kick out good prospects for the priesthood and promote those with leftist ideas and/or homosexuals. Promoting homosexuals and pedophiles was a great idea of the Communists because they could use that to prove that celibacy does not work. Then there was a plan in place to re-educate the older, more traditional priests by forcing then into workshops and re-education programs. If re-education didn't work, they would marginalize these priests by sending them to remote parishes, declaring them insane or even by drugging them. Today priests are being re-trained by groups like the National Conference of Diocesan Directors of Religious Education, at Georgetown University, at Woodstock Theological Center, and in Unions like Washington Theological Union. We have priest friends who are in hiding so as not to be declared insane and drugged. Signs of authority had to be eliminated also: like the man sitting at the head of the table at the family dinner; like the robes of the bishop; like a priests collar and robe; like the nuns bridal gown; like the bishop's chair; etc. Signs and gestures (orthopraxy)
For the bishops it was just a matter of getting Communist operatives to surround them. This could be partially accomplished by a female affirmative action program. If women couldn't become priests, why shouldn't they be given positions of authority in the Church? So the argument ran and so has it been implemented. Recently it was reported in "The Wanderer" that the NCCB has put in place an affirmative action program for females who want to study theology at the universities. After they get this special priestly training where do you think they going to work? Pastoral Assistants? Bishop's Assistants? Are these females the women who love being women, who love being the greatest creation of God, the tabernacle of the creation of eternal human beings? No! In most cases, they are feminists who want to be men and who support abortion and homosexuals.
SMALL FAITH COMMUNITIES
All the original founders of RENEW are students of the Marxist, Saul Alinsky, and his books, "Rules for Radicals" and "Reveille for Radicals". This is admitted by the founders. Alinsky taught that you must take small groups of people (8 to 12) and create an atmosphere of tension even if you have to create a problem that does not exist. Then you solve the problem so that you become the good guy. In "Rules for Radicals" Alinsky writes, "They must feel so frustrated, so defeated, so lost, so futureless in the prevailing system that they are willing to let go of the past and chance the future. This acceptance is the reformation essential to any revolution.."
In other words, "the first step in community organization is community disorganization." (Alinsky) "The organizer dedicated to changing the life of a particular community; searches out controversy and issues, rather than avoid them, for unless there is controversy people are not concerned enough to act." (Alinsky)
So what is their plan? [Taken from their own files]
How do they do this? Small Faith Communities! "We must begin again as church, reinvent the church, re-found the church with a different structure and leadership. Small Faith Communities are no longer an option but a necessity." (Father Art Baranowski a student of Alinsky) Anti-authoritarian is the goal, anti-mother, anti-father, anti-priest, anti-bishop, anti-pope. Their goal is to have pseudo-Catholic parishes, run by laymen and women (mostly feminists), completely divorced from Rome and the Bishops, but accepting the buildings and the money that being Catholic supplies. The most astute of these subversives will never contradict Rome directly, but instead will give a nod to Rome while doing just the opposite of what Rome requires.
Phase I of their plan was to have retreat experiences with the parish staff and the core group of laity directed and controlled by the ICRI. These "retreat experiences" were simply "sensitivity sessions" designed to break down any psychological barriers to "the agenda" and to create the "tensions" necessary to promote change. Retreats are essential for picking out leaders because they need to create a natural trance state (the state of being non-thinking - sort of spaced out), where the thinking mind is almost turned off. In this state, which is common to anyone who listens to a boring talk or drives a long familiar road, they can induce love bombing, a technique of friendliness that takes you off guard. Those who find the experience great, do not even know why. Those who don't (who kept on thinking) are weeded out.
Phase II uses "grass root teams" to implement Renew at the local parish level. Renew is based upon Process Theology with its on-going theory of revelation. Process Theology denies the very possibility of unchanging objective truth. Therefore, the agenda for these "grass root teams" is to create an atmosphere of ongoing change and evolution in doctrine. And the changes will never end. Phase II accomplishes this by non-confrontational tactics. Their doctrine is to never confront or criticize anyone's beliefs. All beliefs have equal merit, except the belief that there are unchanging truths and all should obey these truth which reside in the Catholic Church. The only sin is criticizing someone's belief structure. Non-judgmentalism becomes the only faith. Condoning becomes the only type of love tolerated. Tolerance the only mentality. Condoning and love bombing are the methods. To put it psychologically, accepting every kind of behavior and making people feel wanted and loved. Using these methods, they win over the weak and the insecure. They become the family. This is why divorces increase wherever RENEW exists.
Phase III requires the pastors to meet with the ICRI every two months for brainwashing or sensitivity training. The non-judgmental pastor ends up unable to say anything in a sermon except love one another without being judgmental. Of course, the very nature of authority is to judge and to enforce; therefore, the authority of the pastor is eroded completely. He, himself, is so brainwashed as to reject the God given authority of his office.
From a legal point of view, the authority of the Church's chain of command was effectively destroyed years before by the formation of the "Priest Senate, the Association of Chicago Priests, the Archdiocese School Board, local school boards, lay advisory boards, and religious education teams. With the formation of parish councils the foundation was complete.
The unity of the Church is kept by what is called "Patriarchy" or God's "chain of command". This chain of command requires respect for the seat of authority and it requires obedience to that authority. To break the unity of the Church, the authority must be broken and obedience must by eliminated. To do this in the parishes, Corporations must be formed to take the authority away from the pastor and his priests, and give it to the Corporate Officers. These would be called parish councils, but in most cases they really become identified as the "Parish Staff". By incorporating the parishes, the authority of the pastor would be taken away, and he would be relegated to the position of just another corporate officer or not an officer at all. These are not real corporations, but just act as though they are, so that the pastor can be placed in the background. What if orthodox people get onto the parish council? That was also well thought out by the founders of RENEW
They had a plan in place if a good Catholic attended these parish council meetings and disrupted their plans? At first they would belittle him by calling him old fashioned. If that didn't work, their plan was to neutralize him. The best way to explain how they neutralize is to give one good example of hundreds we have documented. That example is Phillip J. Kronzer. Kronzer was on the finance committee of the parish council of St. Mary's in Los Gatos, California for years. When the changes began to happen, he wanted to know why St. Mary's needed a paid lay Pastoral Assistant, and a paid Liturgical Director. What was the matter with the way St. Mary's had been managed for all these years with the priest running things and volunteers helping out without pay?
Think back to their plan. Create a conflict and then become the savior with a solution. After Phil Kronzer's conflict with the new paid Pastoral Assistant, Jeannie Martin, she had to protect her job, so she became the spiritual advisor to Phil's wife, Ardie Kronzer, after all she was the "Pastoral Assistant". (Keep in mind that the title "pastoral assistant" is illegal by canon law except for an ordained priest.) Over a period of many years Jeannie Martin, the Pastoral Assistant, taking the normal everyday conflicts in marriage and over emphasized them, blowing them out of proportion, convinced Mrs. Kronzer that she had a marriage problem. (Create a problem.) In time they assisted Ardie Kronzer into moving out of the house without her husband knowing it. (Find a solution.) The Pastor (a priest) and the Pastoral Assistant (a woman) helped in the divorce. Kronzer was neutralized and they continued liberalizing the school and the parish. Today at St. Mary's only a minority believe in all the doctrines of the Church. If actions are any indication, the pastor does not set an example for he never ever genuflects in Church not even during the Mass. But then again he could have arthritis. Before the female pastoral assistant took over there was one divorce in the parish per ten years. Since she has taken over the parish, there are 35 divorces per ten years. (A list of names can be supplied.) In fact the female pastoral assistant is separated from her own husband. These people are not Communists, and maybe they even dislike Communists, but without knowing it they are carrying out the Communist agenda.
RENEW was born out of a Communist infiltration of the Catholic Church to undermine authority, especially of fathers, priests and bishops, and to make the conscience the ultimate guide of morals. This plan has been so successful that Catholic marriages have the same divorce rate as the rest of the country. Priests pay no attention to their bishops. Bishops have become so passive they are afraid to enforce any discipline or refuse any request to do so. A breakdown in authority in the Church has been the result. The vast majority of people involved in RENEW are not Communists, but have been converted to their cause because these brain-washers cater to one's weaknesses and conflicts. They excuse the weaknesses and exaggerate the conflicts. They create cafeteria Catholics.
WHAT IS RENEW'S PLAN FOR ORTHODOX CATHOLICS?
What to do with the well-educated priests who know that these things are wrong and are not afraid to stand up and be counted. St. Thomas More said, "Silence is affirmation." The founders of RENEW, asked themselves, "What to do with the well educated laity who have strong devotions to the Mass and to Our Lady?" These people will not survive more than one or two RENEW small faith community meetings before they leave or disrupt the entire system. They must neutralize the real Catholics.
Communist priest AA-1025 passed on a directive to the Communist priests under his control. This directive said to pass on the word that, "God Himself, will bring about a great miracle, a miracle altogether spectacular (people revere this) that would accomplish the unity of all Christians. It is why men should not meddle with it otherwise than by the great openness, a very charitable openness." (page 52, AA-1025) This was written in the late 1930's. What miracle or message came out of this we do not know; but the Garabandal episode preached a miracle and a warning. "The Lady of All Nations" in Amsterdam spouted socialist ideas and warned Rome to make drastic modernistic changes. This apparition took place in the same place as the Communists' first new catechism, "The Dutch Catechism". In 1972 the so-called locutions of Father Don Stefano Gobbi started, who states over and over again, "Pay no attention to all the evil which is spreading more and more and flooding everywhere. Disregard also the great evil which Satan is succeeding in spreading even in the Church." (Message July 16, 1976) By playing the part of a conservative priest, Gobbi was able to lead countless priests out of the parishes to pray "the Gobbi Rosary" with Small Faith Communities, outside the Church, in effect neutralizing good priests from action against the attacks by the liberals. Medjugorje started under communism and advocates the same theology espoused by the Marxist priest AA-1025, a pluralistic religion where all beliefs are accepted.
The next thing to do was to make good, God fearing Catholics, who go to Mass each and every day look foolish and stupid. This also took the creation of false apparitions. There are today almost 700 claimed apparitions. Which apparitions the Communists actually started could only be speculation; nonetheless, those started behind Communist lines or with Communist terminology, or advocating change in the Church, would be suspicious. Many others are just the aping of others for financial or ego gain. The results are the same; however, good Catholics have become foolish and stupid in the eyes of the liberal cafeteria Catholics (with a small "c" because no one is really a Catholic unless they accept and believe all that the Church teaches).
A (Communist?) BISHOP IN ROME
Communist priest, AA-1025, said they had a bishop in Rome who was one of them. We can only speculate who that might be. There are many who fit the profile. Bishop Hnilica is one. He was supposed to have been ordained a priest at the age of 25 and then a bishop one month later behind the iron curtain. He immediately left for Rome supposedly to save his life, and arrived in Rome without proof of ordination, because he claimed, "I could not travel with such papers." Although never working for (or with) the Vatican, Hnilica made many friends of other bishops in the Vatican. He even offered to take money to Poland's Solidarity Union through the underground for the Holy Father. This he did, but no one knows if the money ever got to Solidarity. Since then he has gotten sticky fingers.
Aside from his obvious involvement in the Vatican Bank Scandal in the early 80s, when he tried to buy Calvi's briefcase after Calvi (Mafia) was found hanging from a bridge in London in 1982, so-called "Bishop" Hnilica paid two million dollars for the briefcase, and then was found laundering money in and out of Medjugorje on a regular basis since the mid 80's. One of Hnilica's secretaries, a man named Luciano Alimandi, went into America seeking a visionary to use for Hnilica's new plan of scimming money off Medjugorje using his Pro Fratribus organization, later Pro Deo Et Fratribus, as the front. Luciano found a self proclaimed mystic named Christine Mugridge studying theology at Stubenville University along with members of Pro Deo Et Fratribus. Luciano brought Christine Mugridge to Denver, Colorado where he could pick between four female visionaries: Christine Mugridge, Veronica Garcia, Sylvia Greoger, and Theresa Lopez. He dumped Christine Mugridge for Theresa Lopez, who he felt was the more attractive and who he could form a "spiritual union" with. After this "spiritual union [sex]" sealed their contract, Bishop Hnilica moved in. Hnilica arrived in Denver by May of 1992. Father Michael Walsh and his brother, Father Larry Walsh had been indoctrinated into the Renew/Amchurch program by Rachel Bresnahan at St. Thomas More Church in Denver. It was at St. Thomas More Church in Denver that Pro Deo Et Fratribus was set up by Hnilica. They needed publicity, so in steps Ted Flynn, who had spent several years in the Eastern Bloc Countries as some kind of consultant. Ted Flynn runs an operation known as "Maxlor" and his wife, Maurine Flynn, publishes a magazine called, "Signs of The Times", which promotes every visionary in the world including pedophile, Marvin Kucera. Richard Hrpsha, also from Eastern Europe got involved, and "Catholic Evangelization Mission for Russia" was formed with a $200,000,000 business plan. Hrpsha went off with the Marvin Kucera Refuges and fleeced millions from good Catholics. Hnilica now has refuges and communes all over the world where people and their money just seem to disappear. What a great way to suck the best Catholics out of the Church and fleece them out of all of their assets. Call To Action, Amchurch, Communist? Maybe! This could explain why Luciano Alimandi was able to arrange a face to face meeting with the NCCB in Washington, DC in order to clear the way for Hnilica to enter the U.S. and fund raise. Follow the money from CEM, to QAMA, to Medjugorje, to Our Lady of All Nations, to Amchurch, to International Renew.
WHO FINANCED THESE MOVEMENTS
Communist priest AA-1025 said,
"My funds were practically unlimited. I financed leftist reviews and also a large number of journalists, who performed excellent work afterwards. All my hopes laid principally on alternate schemes, which I had suggested through much advanced and audacious theologians. Finally, thanks to my zeal and especially to the money which I spent as if it were inexhaustible, the modernist schemes were brought in secretly to the Council and presented with audacity to replace the official ones."
We know that Communists financed RENEW and CHRIST AMONG US, and can only speculate what else. One must wonder where Fr. Gobbi got all the money to give away millions of copies of his book, or where (ex-Father) Gruner got the money to give away his "Fatima Crusader" magazine, or where the Charismatic Movement got the money to expand all over the world in such a short time, or where Medjugorje got the money to create 300 centers in the United States. Bishop Hnilica deposited and withdrew Italian Lire into the billions between 1987 and 1998. Where did this money come from? Bishop Hnilica never had a diocese. He never had a congregation. He never had a job. Where did he get the millions that went through his hands and all the retreat centers he owns? Was he financed by the Communists? What did he have to do when the money stopped? Medjugorje and Theresa Lopez?
THE HOLY SACRED MASS
If you read the Communists master plan they intended to destroy the Mass to such a degree that all would lose belief in the true presence. Their plan was to break down the mystery and the sacredness of the Mass and to treat it commonly like a meal. They planned to slowly move the altar into the middle of the people, eliminating the Holy Ground of the Altar. To do this, they planned to slowly over a long period of time, first turn the priest around forcing a new table instead of an altar that was not movable. Then they the planned to slowly remove the altar rail. Then they would bring the priest down into the common ground of the people, and the people onto the sacred ground of the altar until it was no longer considered sacred and special. Then they would create Eucharistic Ministers replacing the priest. Their next move would be to place the table in the center of the pews. After that they planned to concelebrate with lay people. Then the plan was for the priest to be eliminated. In time people would celebrate Mass at home with anyone as priest.
In 1969 Alfredo Cardinal Ottaviani held the same office in Rome that Cardinal Ratzinger does now. This is the second highest office in the Church. According to Alfredo Cardinal Ottaviani, "on June 5, 1969 out of the 187 bishops at the Synod of Bishops who studied the changes in the Sacred Liturgy to the Novus Ordo, 105 voted against it, and only 82 voted for it," and he went on to say:
"The definition of the Mass is thus reduced to a 'supper,' a term which the General Instruction constantly repeats. The Instruction [Novus Ordo] further characterized this `supper' as an assembly, presided over by a priest and held as a memorial of the Lord to recall what He did on Holy Thursday. None of this in the very least implies: the Real Presence, the Reality of the Sacrifice, the sacramental function of the priest who consecrates, the intrinsic value of the Eucharistic Sacrifice independent of the presence of the `Assembly.
"It is obvious that the Novus Ordo obsessively emphasizes 'supper' and 'memorial,' instead of the unbloody renewal of the Sacrifice of the Cross."
(The Ottaviani Intervention)
Alfredo Cardinal Ottaviani goes on to show what has been removed from the Liturgy and wants to know why. Removed from the Liturgy are the Oblation to the Holy Trinity, the emphasis of remission of sins, the immanent purpose of the Mass which is fundamentally that of a sacrifice for our sins, transubstantiation is completely ignored, genuflections are reduced to three, purification of the priest's fingers over the chalice, preserving the priest's fingers from all profane contact after the consecration, purification of the sacred vessels, protecting the contents of the chalice with the pall, gilding for the interior of sacred vessels, solemn consecration for movable altars, consecrated stones and relics in the movable altar, the three cloths on the altar, thanksgiving for the Eucharist made kneeling, all these suppressions only emphasize how outrageously faith in the dogma of the Real Presence is implicitly repudiated.
"To abandon a liturgical tradition which for four centuries stood as a sign and pledge of unity in worship, and to replace it with another liturgy which, due to the countless liberties it implicitly authorizes, cannot but be a sign of division - a liturgy which teems with insinuations or manifest errors against the integrity of the Catholic Church - is, we feel bound in conscience to proclaim, an incalculable error.
(Alfedo Cardinal Ottaviani - 6-5-1969)
When you read the master plan of Communist AA-1025, this was exactly what he planned for the Liturgy of Our Lord's Sacrifice. This Communist wrote in 1945:
"It will be explained to them that this Presence only exists insofar as it is believed. Thus, they will feel themselves to be the creators of their entire religion, and the most intelligent among them will know how to draw the required conclusions. To weaken further the noting of `Real Presence' of Christ, all decorum will have to be set aside. No more costly embroidered vestments, no more sacred music, especially no more Gregorian chant, but a music in jazz style, no more Sign of the Cross, no more genuflections, but only dignified and stern attitudes. Moreover the faithful will have to break themselves of the habit of kneeling, and this will be absolutely forbidden when receiving Communion. Very soon, the Host will be laid in the hand in order that all notion of the Sacred be erased. The Universal Church would therefore be entirely to the glory of man, it would exalt his greatness, his strength, his virility. It would offer incense to his rights and sing his victories."
In the preface to "The Klaus Gamber critique", Ratzinger wrote, "Instead of continuity in developing (the rite), they produced a manufactured liturgy. Leaving aside the living process of growth they embarked on another, that of fabrication." Ratzinger goes on to say that what they did is "a falsification." The architects of this destruction of the Liturgy were Cardinal Lercaro and Annibale Bugnini. AA-1025 was disappointed with Vatican Council II, but "we have found the astuteness which consists in hiding behind the `Spirit of the Council' --- to launch all kinds of thrilling innovations."
When you read the plans of the Communists in the first half of this century, and then see what happened, it makes you wonder. Is there substantial proof that "Call To Action" and "RENEW" are the leftovers of the Communist plan to destroy the Church? You be the judge.
Communist priest AA-1025 said, "Therefore, I would like to see each church filled with tables, each one capable of seating twelve persons. --- This will require ordaining a much larger number of priests. --- Since Mass will only be a "Lord's Supper," it will no longer be an act of adoration, but an act of fraternization." In October of 1976 "Call To Action" held what was called the "wild mass" where the assembly distributed communion around dozens of tables. At each table there was bread and wine to be "consecrated." The principal "presiders," were a woman and a priest at each table..
Father Jake Empereur, S.J. is one of the priests who is out to destroy the liturgy. He indoctrinates priests and seminarians from Berkeley to San Antonio. Regarding this brainwashing, Empereur states, "We have more training programs, more homily commentaries, more RCIA programs, more liturgical music organization, --- as well as the greater integration of the humanistic practices of philosophy and sociology and anthropology, in their understanding of the liturgy, yet we have still not fulfilled the aims of the liturgical pioneers of the 50s and the 60s." What liturgical plans and by who? By who we know and he admits what the plan was.
One positive development, he said, was the growing belief among Catholics that the assembly at Mass is the "primary presence of Jesus," that the real symbol of His presence, the primary symbol of Christ's presence is not the consecrated bread and wine on the altar but the liturgical assembly. Father Jake Empereur, S.J stated: "But after that certain theological issues might come up. But, of course, Real Presence in the Eucharist was one that you could always get a discussion going on, especially when you tell people that Christ is not physically present in the Eucharist." (Wanderer Sept. 3, 1998)
This is the goal of RENEW regarding the Mass, and it goes back to the 50s and 60s. You can see the connection in the words: "celebrations" instead of "sacrifice", Baptism becomes a welcoming into the community instead of the removing of original sin, "community meal" instead of the Eucharist. They have succeeded in taking true belief away from many Catholics and in taking away proper worship.
So, what then shall we say about the New Mass? We can say that it is (in most cases) irreverent, devoid of beauty, lacking holiness, without sacredness, and not worthy of the worship we owe to God. What Mass then do I attend? Believe it or not I attend the Novus Ordo everyday, unless I am taking a convert to the faith or someone weak in the faith who needs uplifting, then I attend a Tridentine Mass that is authorized by my Bishop, but not an illegal Tridentine Mass. Not even the beauty of the Tridentine Mass should cause us disunity between ourselves and our bishops. While working to restore the Tridentine, I go where God needs my reverence and worship the most, at the Novus Ordo. I go where the people need my example the most, at the Novus Ordo. At the same time, I work for the restoration of the Tridentine or even something better.
Why don't I just admit that the Holy Father made a mistake and go only to a Tridentine Mass? I do admit that the innovations of the Novus Ordo is a mistake, but I must stay with the Holy Father because of the following. On October 11, 1992 Mr. Carlos Evaristo (in the presence of Mother Prioress, Anthony Cardinal Padiyare, Bishop Francis Michaelappa and Father Francisco Pacheco), asked Sister Lucia of Fatima: "What is the message that you have for this confused world of today?"
Sister Lucia: "He that is not with the Pope is not with God, and he that wants to be with God, has to be with the Pope."
What can we do then? The future plans for the Liturgy by these destructionists are to keep coming forward until they bring the altar into the middle of the people where we are forced to look at each other when we should to be looking at Christ. This is why extraordinary ministers try to get you to look at them in the eye when they pass out communion instead of looking at Christ in the host. They are taught to look at you in the eyes and smile as they say, "Body of Christ". Whose body are they talking about? To counteract their plans, do not look at them. Do not play their game. To stop their march into the community, put back the altar rail. Refuse to walk on the holy ground of the altar no matter what the reason. St. Ambrose would not let the Emperor of the World on that holy ground behind the altar rail.
How can we get the altar rail back? Easy, there is no law allowing it to be removed in the first place, and bishops do not have that authority. Put out a petition and get it signed by hundreds of people. That petition should say simply, "Altar Rail or no donations!" Keep fighting until all is restored and God is worshipped properly in His Holy Sacrifice. Want a bumper-sticker "Altar Rail or No Donations"? Write to us and we'll send you one.
OBEDIENCE TO OUR BISHOP
When Russia kicked out the Communists, they shut off the money supply to the thousands of priests and theologians, but these people have not gone away. Where have the Communists gone? Some are still active in the Catholic Church under the name - RENEW. Where are the good traditional Catholics who should be fighting against RENEW? They are running around chasing apparitions, also started by these same Communists, or have been neutralized by going off in their own traditional groups which also causes divisions in the body of Christ. UNA VOCE (www.netacc.net/~bbasile/index.html) promotes and supports Tridentine parishes and Masses, but they do not deny the authenticity of the New Mass. I support a return to the Tridentine unless that causes division, or small faith communities.
What should we do then? One thing we do not do is disobey our bishops, even when we perceive them to be bad bishops. To understand this thoroughly we have a booklet called, "Take Back Your Church With Obedience". Nonetheless, pay close attention to this: if these destroyers of the Church can get us to disobey our bishop even for conservative and traditional causes, they have won their first goal, breaking down the chain of command. How, you might say, can we obey a bishop who allows RENEW? You must obey, or you will play right into their hands, and they will have won what they are trying to do, divide through disobedience. Obey, yes; but we lay Catholics have rights and obligations. We can write a letter like the following one, and then act on that letter.
OPEN LETTER TO ANY BISHOP
My reason for writing (which doesn't need a response) is to create a more harmonious relationship between what I consider a patriarchal relationship of father and son. This patriarchal system (chain of command) is what I have tried to preserve over the past thirty years, even to the point of going to jail for a year fighting for my rights as a father. It would be a contradiction to fight for my rights as a father and not fight for the rights of mothers, of police officers, of judges, of presidents, of kings, of priests, of bishops, and of Popes. The entire social order depends on this patriarchal system of order; and is, in fact, what creates a society that runs smoothly with the most happiness for the most people. My attitude about patriarchal systems does not mean that I do not leave room for just criticism of children to fathers and even of Catholics to the Pope, when it is not a matter of faith or morals. My children were very open in their criticism of me, when they felt I was wrong. I listened and accepted their remarks with patience and charity, sometimes learning a great deal from them. This did not take away their obligation to obey me in all things except sin, which I enforced and insisted on.
It is from this rock (obedience to the chain of command) that Unity Publishing, Inc. builds all our investigations. I learned from Vatican sources that obedience is the first criteria in discernment, because it is this system of patriarchy that unites people and demons want to divide us. Our biggest problem in convincing people of truth is that Catholics have lost their understanding of God's patriarchal system. Why they lost this understanding is why I felt obliged to write this letter.
As a son talking to his father, I would like to present my ideas about obedience, and why Catholics have failed to understand this. All the following quotes are from Dietrich von Hildebrand, who Pope Pius XII called "the 20th Century doctor of the Church" and received an award from Pope Paul VI for his writing.
My attitude about obedience is divided in two categories and one subdivision. The first category is - absolute theological authority on faith and morals. In this I must give my whole heart, my whole soul, and my whole mind in complete consent. I cannot be a cafeteria Catholic. To fail on one point of the theological law of faith and morals, is to fail on all the laws of God. Not even a clear conscience can save me from the wrath of God. (Reference - "The Splendor of Truth" Pope John Paul II)
"Our belief in the teachings of the Church de fide must be an absolute and unconditional one, but we should not imagine that our fidelity to the Church's theoretical authority is satisfied merely by acceptance of ex cathedra pronouncements. We also must adhere wholeheartedly to teachings of the Church in matters of morality, even if they are not defined ex cathedra. The teachings of the encyclical Humanae Vitae, for example, is binding because its content has always been part of the teaching of the Church; in it we are confronted with the theoretical authority of the Church embodied in the tradition of the ordinary Magisterium. It is not a mere practical commandment of the Church, like the commandment to go to church on Sunday." (DvH)
The second category is the practical decisions of the Pope and the Church. In this case I must also obey, providing they do not contradict the first category; but ----- even though I must obey, I do not have to accept with my whole heart, soul, and mind. In fact, I am free to speak against the decisions of even the Pope in practical matters, although I am not free to disobey them.
"Though we must obey such a practical decision, we must not approve it; nay, we must even pray for its revocation, and , in full respect, strive with all legitimate measures to persuade the Holy Father of its danger, all the whole proclaiming wholeheartedly: Credo in unam sanctam catholicam et apostolicam ecclesiam!" (DvH)
Three such practical decisions allowed by the Holy Father that I feel free to speak out against are: Communion in the Hand, Standing for Communion, and Altar Girls. I am not free, however, to disobey; and therefore, I stand for Communion wherever it is done by directive of the local bishop.
The subdivision in my ideas about obedience is obeying the higher authority. If, even in practical decisions of the Church, a lower authority was to advocate something against the practical teachings of the higher authority, I would obey the higher authority. For instance, suppose you told all your pastors to allow me to place a sign in the back of all the Churches stating "Be Silent in Church - My House is a House of Prayer", but a pastor refused to do so. I, in turn, would put up the sign anyway, after first trying to convince the pastor to allow it. In doing so, I would be violating the lower authority (a canon law that required permission from the pastor) in order to obey the higher authority, the bishop. This does not imply, however, that because the pastor was wrong on this one point, his authority is done away with, anymore than a father's authority is done away with simply because he has a weakness (even sin) in some point.
Good Catholics, failing to grasp the importance and subtleties of obedience, have given it up all together (the liberals) or confused it to the point they obey no-one except the Pope (the conservatives). This has come about because of a historical chain of events that most people do not see connected. At the turn of the Century, Edger Cayce found a way to mix Gnosticism with Christianity. This was the birth of the New Age and the woman's movement. In the 1950's the old Gnostic books were found in Egypt and translated into English in 1977. This turned the woman's movement into the feminist movement, with the goal of mixing the Gnostic worship of Sophia with Christianity. The New Age Gnostic beliefs have entered the Catholic Church one step at a time. The first is their ideas of "toleration and love", which sounds so good they could fool anyone.
"There should be room in the Church for many ideas. There should be room for dissent and disagreement. We should love those who we do not agree with. There should never be anger about anything. It is not important to be right. It's more important to get along. Accept people as they are. A child has the same rights as a parent. Women have the same rights as men. Priests have the same rights as Bishops." (New Age Gnostics)
All of this sounds good and has been accepted by the vast majority of Americans, Catholic and non-Catholic. But the result is acceptance of homosexuality, and the destruction of the patriarchal system established by God to the point that even those in authority have lost all authority as in the case of fathers who are afraid to enforce that authority, or as in the case of the Pope and the bishops who fear being authoritarian. Authority without enforcement is no authority at all. This has happened to fathers and mothers through secular law. It has almost happened to policemen through many laws. Stripped of all enforcement powers, husbands can no longer hold a family together, and only 34% of marriages survive today in America. Stripped of all enforcement powers, mothers and schoolteachers have lost all authority and the results are on television everyday. But the sad thing is that the Pope and bishops have not been stripped of their power of enforcement, they just gave it up without a fight.
"Ours is, I believe, the period of the greatest crisis the Church has ever faced, a period in which the anathema has become unpopular and is unfortunately considered as incompatible with charity, in which authority is discredited and many prelates do not use their authority to discipline priests who are teaching heresies. In such a period, every faithful Catholic who is fully devoted to Christ, to the teaching of the Church, to the deposit of the Catholic faith, to the dogmas, is called to raise his voice in defense of orthodoxy." (DvH)
The concept of obedience has been destroyed by secular laws with the excuse of creating equality, destroyed by toleration, destroyed by a false concept of love (meaning acceptance instead of doing good), destroyed by those in authority who do not use enforcement. Again - authority without enforcement is no authority at all.
"John, take out the trash."
"John, take out the trash."
Authority without enforcement is no authority at all.
The feminists (an acceptable name for Sophists) have convinced almost every bishop that if they cannot become priests, they should be allowed to hold positions of the highest authority they can as a pay-back. This has happened all across the nation as women are running the parishes and the chancellery offices in the highest positions even when they were not the best qualified. Female affirmative action will destroy the Church in this country.
This brings us to the people we are fighting. They do not believe in obedience to bishops, because the bishops do not believe in obedience to bishops. When a bishop in Ohio says that no pilgrimages should come to his area, and bishops in Los Angeles allow advertisements for pilgrimages to Ohio, what are Catholics to think? When a bishop says that no outside priests can say Mass in his area without his permission, and bishops go there and say Mass without his permission, what are Catholics to think? When bishops and even Councils of bishops disobey the Vatican, what are Catholics to think?
This toleration of disobedience by those in authority is our biggest thorn. The biggest reason we have not already won this war, is toleration and disobedience by those in authority. What do I hope from you? Respect for the rights of other bishops and obedience to the Holy Father!

RIGHTS AND OBLIGATIONS
We hope this letter lets you know what rights you have under obedience for we want you to work within the structure of the Church and not outside of it. To go off in little clusters of conservatives or traditionalists to be with your own is no different than the Small Faith Communities. It divides the parish into small groups that can be manipulated by small people. When the Communists wanted to take over our bishops they didn't quit if they were conservative. They kept at it for years until he was a Communist, a sympathizer, or at least neutralized by creating a real or created scandal. I know a bishop who was accused of homosexual activity because he was hand picked by the Holy Father to clean up the homosexual activity in a new diocese. In order to stop him before he even took office they got one of their own to accuse him publicly. It was totally untrue, but it worked. He was neutralized.
Therefor do not always assume that a bishop is weak or bad. As Cardinal Ratzinger stated about some bishops abuses in the Liturgy, "They have a formation which sees it [the 1962 Liturgy] immediately as a threat to unity, especially against the ecumenical Council, which has the right to be accepted with obedience on the part of the faithful." We are not fighting against the Council for if we were, we would be fighting against the Holy Spirit. We are fighting against the "spirit of the Council" which is not the Holy Spirit. We have those rights without a bishop's approval providing we do not contradict the teachings of the Church in matters of faith and morals. That right is in keeping with Vatican II's last document and Canon 215 which "encourage lay people so that they may undertake tasks on their own initiative." (lumen Gentium, no. 33)
If you are going to get into this fight know that they will not stop at anything. They will lie about you, attack your children, create situations, even kill if they have to. This is not a war for the weak hearted, but for the strong, those willing to get into a fight - men, who will not give up - men, who can take the heat - men, who are not going to let God do it.
On October 11, 1992 from 12:00 to 2:00 P.M. GMT, Sister Maria Lucia de Jesus e do Coracao Imaculado (The only remaining seer of Fatima - Maria Lucia dos Santos) met with the following:
His Eminence Antony Cardinal Padiyara of Ernaculam, India His Eminence Bishop Francis Michaelappa of Mysore, India Mr. Carlos Evaristo (Historian, Journalist and Interpreter) Mother Prioress (Sister Luica's Mother Superior) Reverend Father Francisco V. Pacheco of Fort Ce, Brazil
The complete report published by Mr. Carlos Evaristo, St. Anne's Oratory, Apoartado 133, 2496 Fatima Codex, Portugal, is 33 pages long and includes pictures of the interview. I talked to Carlos Evaristo for over an hour to get permission to include this transcript in this report. He informed me that this meeting was audio and video taped. The finished product was given to Sister Lucia for review and correction. One statement was removed for diplomatic reasons, the rest was approved by Sister Lucia. All 33 pages will appear on our web-site with the pictures of the interview. Six other interviews will also appear as we get them from Mr. Evaristo. Note carefully that no new Consecration need be done.
Small sections of that report are as follows:
Regarding the Consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on March 25th of 1994 Lucia said:
SL: "The Pope ordered that the image of Our Lady of Fatima, which is at the Fatima Shrine, be taken to Rome to St. Peter's Basilica so that it could be present for the act of Consecration. All of the bishops joined the Holy Father in the act of Consecration.
CE: But what about the Bishops that did not receive their invitations on time or perhaps just didn't pay attention and chose not to participate in the act?
SL: We cannot say that these Bishops, that did not participate, committed a sin or a fault. The majority of the bishops were united to the Pope in this act. The people, worldwide, in every Diocese were united to the Bishops and the Bishops, in turn to the Pope. So, this Consecration was a great union of the people of God. It was all of this that made this Consecration accepted.
CE: So this Consecration was then accepted by Our Lady?
CE: But did not Russia have to be specifically mentioned, and did not Our Lady say that?
SL: The Pope's intention was Russia, when he said: "Those Peoples" in the text of the 1984 Consecration. Those who knew of the request for the Consecration of Russia, knew what he was referring to as did God, who is all knowledgeable and can read the minds of men. God knows that the Pope's intention was Russia and that he meant "Russia" in the Consecration. What is important is the intention, like when a priest has the intention to Consecrate a host.
CE: But didn't Our Lady want Russia to be specifically mentioned?
SL: Our Lady never requested that Russia be specifically mentioned by name. At the time I didn't even know what Russia was. We thought she [Russia] was a very wicked woman. What matters is the Pope's intention and the Bishops knew the intention the Pope had was to Consecrate Russia.
BM: In that case, there is no need to Consecrate Russia again?
SL: There is no need to Consecrate Russia again, but each Bishop can Consecrate his own Diocese to the Immaculate Heart of Mary if he wants to.
CE: Our Lady is content and has accepted it?
FP: If another Pope comes after the death of this Pope, is it necessary to Consecrate Russia again?
SL: He may Consecrate it if he wishes, but there is no need for it.
CE: Has the conversion of Russia then taken place?
SL: Yes. The news speak for themselves.
CE: But, is the conversion of Russia not interpreted as the conversion of the Russian People to Catholicism?
SL: Our Lady never said that. There are many misinterpretations around. The fact is that in Russia, the Communist, atheist power, prevented the people from carrying out their faith. People now have an individual choice to remain as they are or to convert. This they are now free to do, and many conversions are, in fact, taking place, and that man in Russia, unknowingly was an instrument of God in the conversion.
CE: What man? Gorbachev?
CP: Does God and Our Lady still want the Church to reveal the Third Secret?
SL: The Third Secret is not intended to be revealed. It was only intended for the Pope and Immediate Church Hierarchy.
CE: But didn't Our Lady say that it was to be revealed to the public by 1960, at the latest?
SL: Our Lady never said that. Our Lady said that it was for the Pope.
FP: Do you continue to see Our Lady?
SL: (Smiling and addressing Carlos Evaristo) This Brazilian Priest is very curious.
CE: He likes to know everything well and put it straight. Does Our Lady continue to appear to you or has She appeared recently?
SL: I cannot say.
FP: The Holy Ghost is revealing to me that She does.
CE: And if She wasn't, you would say, "No!", so I interpret "I can't say" as meaning "Yes!"
FP: Since I believe that Sister continues to see Our Lady, I ask Sister to request from Our Lady a blessing for the Bishops of my country and a special Grace for me that only I personally know what the Grace is.
CE: Next time you speak to Our Lady, please, remember to ask for Father Pacheco's special grace.
SL: Yes, I will ask Our Lady.
CE: If you remember, I wrote to you through your niece, Sister Maria Belem, and asked if there was any connection of Fatima and Garabandal.
SL: I remember the question and there is no connection between Fatima and Garabandal.
CE: Did Our Lady say at Fatima, in the last apparition, "Farewell, until St. Sebastian de Garabandal." Because there are people who attest to having read it in an old book in Brazil.
SL: Our Lady never said this and, if they read it, it is false.. There are many misinterpretations and untruths. This is not true.
