Luther did not seek to reform the Church – divinely founded – but to destroy it through the creation of his human establishment made according to his liking and convenience. He was not a reformer but a deformer.
If we celebrate Luther’s rebellion against the Church of Christ and the revealed doctrine, then following the same logic we should also celebrate the rebellion of Lucifer and its daemons against God.
If Luther, the heresiarch, blasphemed in a thousand ways, as when he said: “the Catholic Mass is the greatest and most horrible abomination of the Popes,” Lucifer shouted: “Non serviam” (I will not serve) talking about God made man.
Both rebellions had in common PRIDE. That is why, according to the vision of Sister Maria Serafina Micheli*, both of them are in Hell. And to celebrate Luther means to pay homage to a reprobate.

On October 16, 2016, more than 200,000 French people marched on the streets of Paris to denounce the offensive against family and demand the repeal of the Taubira’s Law, which allows same-sex couples to get married. They denounced the attack performed by the French government against the institution of the family, and demanded the abolition of this action, which aims to destroy the concept of matrimony as the foundation of family unit, and pave the way for adoption by homosexuals.

“In a heretic who denies one Article of Faith there is no habit if faith, and this is so because every habit is specified by its formal object, and if this is removed the essence of the habit disappears. But the formal object of faith is the First Truth, inasmuch as it is manifest in Sacred Scripture and in the doctrine of the Church which proceeds from the First Truth. Whoever therefor does not accept, as an infallible and Divine rule, the doctrine of the Church which proceeds from the First Truth, and as it is manifested in Sacred Scripture, such a person has not the habit of faith, and the things which are of faith he accepts from motives other than that of faith. It is like one who assents to a conclusion without knowing or understanding the connection between it and the premises from which it is deduced. This knowledge is not scientific, but merely an opinion.
“So, likewise, it is manifest that he who adheres to the teachings of the Church, as to an infallible rule, assents to whatever the Church teaches; otherwise, if, of the things taught by the Church, he holds what he chooses to hold, and rejects what he chooses to reject, he no longer adheres to the teachings it the Church as to an infallible rule, but to his own will. Hence it is evident that a heretic who obstinately disbelieves even one article of faith, is not prepared to follow the teaching of the Church in all things (but if he is not obstinate, he is not a heretic but only erring). Therefore it is clear that such a heretic with regard to one article has no faith in the other articles, but only a kind of opinion in accordance with his own will.”

Rome, october 13, 2016 – During a meeting in the Vatican between Protestants and Catholics (during the audience held in the Paul VI Audience Hall), which, in an unprecedented way, was presided over by a statue of the apostate monk Martin Luther, who was excommunicated by the Catholic Church, Pope Francis said: “At the end of this month, God willing, I will go to Lund, in Sweden, and together with the Lutheran World Federation, we will remember, after five centuries, the beginning of Luther's reform.” Being that Luther was a heretic and schismatic monk, who strayed thousands from the path of salvation, is it right to celebrate this “Reform”, which has dragged so many into the abyss of error and heresy and has caused them to separate from the one and only Church – the Catholic – founded by Christ? Is it a good thing that a statue of this blasphemer (search in Google: Luther’s blasphemies) presides over a papal audience?
Pope Francis also said in this meeting: “Proselytism is the deadliest poison against the ecumenical path”. However, when the Pope does not follow the legacy he received from Christ, he is not infallible. And, certainly, in all this, he strays impressively from what Christ said, who dedicated His public life to proselytism, especially when he ordered His Apostles and successors: Go ye into the whole world and preach the gospel to every creature. He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved: but he that believeth not shall he condemned. (Mk. 16: 15-16) The expression “TO EVERY CREATURE” includes absolutely each and every one of us, even Protestants, whom Pope Francis refuses to evangelize for the sake of a false ecumenism.
During this meeting, which coincided with the 99th anniversary of the apparitions of Our Lady in Fatima, Lutherans handed Francis, who received it happily, a luxurious book that contains the heretical thesis held by Luther and for which he was excommunicated from the Catholic Church.
Undoubtedly, all this has provoked considerable dismay and scandal among many members of the faithful. However, all the human errors made by a Pontiff in those things that do not affect Papal infallibility, which it is given only under determined and precise conditions, must not affect our faith, neither are we supposed to follow them, as Saint Paul did when he faced Saint Peter in Antioch (to read this article, click here: http://www.catholicityblog.com/2016/01/saint-pauls-rebuke-to-first-pope-in.html ).
|A statue of Luther, very similar to the one|
that presided over Francis’ audience.
The Pope, as the successor of Saint Peter and Vicar of Christ, received from Christ a legacy that has to be defended by him (as it has been done for over two thousand years). In any other thing that departs from this legacy or that he wants to innovate in a wrong way, the Pope does not act with the power of Christ, but only as a fallible person. None of the previous Popes would have even thought of celebrating 500 years of apostasy or to place the statue – presiding over one of his audiences – of an excommunicated and heretic person who, according to Padre Pio, is in Hell. Blessed Maria Serafina of the Sacred Heart of Jesus also had a vision of Luther in Hell. (See here: http://www.catholicityblog.com/2016/03/false-churches-false-religions.html).
Therefore, we should not remain silent nor justify any of these things, as some people, who are committed with aspects that are merely human, do, and we need to pray very much for Pope Francis so he rectifies everything in which he should faithfully adhere to that legacy, and so the faithful will not be disturbed in their faith or get deviated from the right path.
Let us always remember what the Catholic Church teaches:
“These pan-Christians who strive for the union of the Churches would appear to pursue the noblest of ideals in promoting charity among all Christians. But how should charity tend to the detriment of faith? Everyone, knows that John, himself, the Apostle of love, who seems in his Gospel to have revealed the secrets of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, and who never ceased to impress upon the memory of his disciples the new commandment 'to love one another', nevertheless strictly forbade any intercourse with those who profess a mutilated and corrupt form of Christ's teaching: ‘If any man come to you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into the house, nor say to him, God speed you’ (2 John 10). Therefore, since the foundation of charity is faith pure and inviolate, it is chiefly by the bond of one faith that the disciples of Christ are to be united.”
“Thus, Venerable Brethren, it is clear why this Apostolic See has never allowed its subjects to take part in the assemblies of non-Catholics. There is, but one way in which the unity of Christians may be fostered, and that is by furthering the return to the one true Church of Christ of those who are separated from it; for from that one true Church they have in the past fallen away.”
H.H. Pius XI, Encyclical Letter Mortalium Animos, January 6, 1928.
The Pope is the DEPOSITARY not the inventor of the Catholic Doctrine. The First Vatican Council established that: “For the Holy Ghost 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.”

The Silent Bell and the Fate of the Frog
By Oscar Méndez Casanueva
A french philosopher, when looking back at his childhood, remembered that there used to be in his town a small convent, which by the daily ringing of a small bell made itself present. Over the years, the bell stopped ringing. One day he found out, to his surprise, that the bell had never stopped chiming, what really happened was that the town had grown and was swallowed by “modernity” and noise.
Certainly, something very similar happens in man’s heart. The voice of God and his grace, which we could hear and live so clearly during our childhood, are buried progressively under all the bustle and difficulties we encounter in our adult lives, especially in a world so rationalistic and petulant.
This process begins during adolescence, and gain its strength during our youth. Behind it there is an alienating machinery which contributes to the formation of homogeneous mentalities that distance man from God under the pretext of a non-religious formation – which, is really an atheist formation – and a “scientifistic” tendency. Never has it been truer that a little science takes one away from God; much and real science get the creature closer to its Creator.
Schools and universities spread knowledge and techniques, but they forget about the spirit and the axiological formation of man. They do not have a scale of values, and not only that, but what is even worse: they ridicule and mock the highest moral values and label all religious beliefs as superstitious.
And the media is not better. The great majority use the old tactic of two steps forward and one step backward, with the aim of eliminating Catholicism permanently.
Film and television, with their great influence on the creation of criteria and mentalities, have formed entire generations of hedonists without an intellectual judgment. Sex, violence, comfort and corruption, in all their different forms, bombard their passive receptors.
And that without mentioning the videos, magazines and “stories” – especially aimed at the most popular sectors – where vulgarity has reached, over the past few years, unlimited proportions. And, also, the every cruder and despicable pornography, which can be found in an overwhelming number of households – within reach of children and adults – via Internet.
This whole program of “decatholicization” that strikes ever more rapidly the entire population, creates a society without values, drifted away from God and unconcerned with counteracting against this offensive that currently takes up the banner of “gender ideology”. What is amazing is that this same society, which complains so much about the corruption and uncontrollable crime it suffers, not only does not act, but cannot even begin to guess the real root of all its evils. Indeed, society is suffering the same fate of the frog: it is said that if this animal is put in a pot with very hot water, it will immediately jump out trying to escape. Instead, if it is put in a pot with cold water and the water gets hot little by little, over low heat, the frog will stay there calmly, until it is boiled to death.
Exaclty the same has happened with the decatholicization of our society, which is living the fate of the frog.
Such an alienating social process that takes man away from the transcendental truth, and causes him to forget, if not even ignore, his ultimate goal, can only be explained by a sum of manipulated and broken wills, but which nevertheless are guilty because of their acts of rejection of God. Because while it is true that it is a great gift of God to believe in Him in the first place, to persevere in faith above all the difficulties present in the world we live in today, is also an immense gift.
While faith and faithfulness to God and His Church are a gift of God, they also come from a personal determination. He who does not want to believe cannot believe. He who wants to believe, will only be able to do so if he receives this grace from Above. God never denies this gift to those who ask for it and wish it truthfully, but He refuses to give it to those who, in the depths of their reality, do not seek it really. The grace of faith can happen in an instant, like a spark, but the grace of perseverance must be earned through daily prayer and effort. Otherwise, when the soul shuts down – to some extent – to God, faith may be lost, even if it is by denying one single article of the Creed. God is zealous: all or nothing, because He does not compromise.
It is the tragedy of all tragedies that of the unfaithful man who loses God and the sense of the supernatural. His is an internal world that, on the one hand, he tries to disguise as sufficiency before everyone else, and on the other hand, tries to fill it with things that mitigate that desolation and emptiness. And he seeks to silence this tragedy using thousands of means: money, honors, power, knowledge, art, etc.
Finally, mature faith is an internal and supernatural perception of the reality believed. It means to live the truths that once were “only believed”. It is deep, vital and impossible to be confused with merely intellectual convictions. It is the faith that makes the martyrs give their lives for Christ, or the missionaries work until exhaustion, forgetting about themselves in order to evangelize others.
It is therefore necessary to reflect on all this: How many of us have stopped hearing that clear voice of God that we could hear in our childhood, just as happened with the bell of the convent in that small town? Those experiences, the love of God, the unique experience of our First Communion - so intimate and real - the study of our religion… what happened to that? Did we forget to continue our instruction as adults, and now feel that the teachings we received in our childhood are not enough? Did we get swallowed by doubts, noise, endeavors, skepticism, “modernity”, and stopped hearing the voice of God, forgetting that the grace of perseverance is gained through our daily effort and prayer? Finally: Are we meekly waiting for the water to heat slowly until we are boiled to death like the frog? This is, indeed, a sad fate, and yet it is not even close to that last and transcendental fate that those who reject God suffer!

"There are those who say that the Rosary is an antiquated and monotonous prayer, because of the constant repetition of the prayers which compose it. But I put the question: Is there anything at all which lives except through the continual repetition of the same actions?
"God created everything that exists in such a way that it is kept alive by the continual repetition of the same actions. Thus, in order to preserve our life, we breathe in and breathe out always in the same way; our heart beats all the time according to the same rhythm. The stars, the sun, the moon, the planets, the earth follow always the same course, which God has laid down for them. Day follows night, year after year, always in the same way. Likewise the sun gives us light and warmth. In so many plants the leaves appear in the Spring, then they are clothed with flowers, next they yield fruit and, in autumn or winter, they lose their leaves. Thus, everything follows the law which God has laid down for it, and yet it never occurs to anyone to say that it is monotonous; hence, nobody says so; the fact is that we need all this in order to live! Well then, in the spiritual life we experience the same need to repeat continually the same prayers, the same acts of faith, hope and charity, in order to live, since our life is a continued participation in the life of God.
"When the disciples asked Jesus Christ to teach them to pray, He taught them the beautiful formula of the Our Father, saying: “When you pray say: Father…” (Lk 11, 4). The Lord ordered us to pray thus, and did not say that, after a certain number of years, we were to look for a new formula of prayer, since that one had become old-fashioned and monotonous.
"When lovers are together, they spend hours and hours repeating the same thing: “I love you!” What is missing in the people who think the Rosary monotonous is Love; and everything that is not done for love is worthless. Hence, the Catechism tells us that the Ten Commandments of God can be summed up in one: to love God above all things and our neighbor as ourselves
"Those who say the Rosary daily are like children who, every day, manage to find a few moments just to be with their father, to keep him company, to show him their gratitude, to do some service for him, to receive his advice and blessing. It is an exchange of love, the love of the father for the child and the child for the father; it is a mutual giving."

Meditation on the Guardian Angels
I. Admire God’s goodness, which has given you a prince of His court to watch over your behavior. Your Guardian Angel stays by your side day and night; he defends you against the devil and temptations; inspires you holy thoughts; takes you away from evil; intercedes for you before God. Thank God for the goodness he shows toward you by giving you such a faithful and benevolent guide, and see in this a proof of the love He has for your soul. Thank your Guardian Angel for all the things he does for you; and ask him to continue doing them until your death.
II. Have deep reverence for your angel and show it to him every day with a prayer. Do not mistreat or scandalize anyone; remember the Word of God which forbids you to scandalize the little ones, because their angels can always see their Father’s face. These angels will revenge the harm you inflicted on those who are under their care. If you desire to convert a sinner, ask for help to their Guardian Angel. Honor your Guardian Angel. Do not do anything in their presence that you would not do in anyone else’s presence. (Saint Bernard).
III. Think of your Guardian Angel as the best friend you have in this world. He is faithful, and will not abandon you in your time of need. He is infinitely illuminated; seek advice from him when you are in doubt: he will not deceive you. He is powerful and can help you: he has more power, more intelligence and more strength than the men you put trust in. Listen to his inspirations. If you only had a little faith, you would not be afraid of anything, knowing that your angel is with you.
O God, who by your ineffable Providence has deigned to send your holy angels to guard us, grant us the grace of being sustained by their protection, and the joy of keeping them company through all eternity. By Jesus Christ Our Lord. Amen.
