The Strategy of the Wolves: Disobedience as a Source of Law

Disobedience as a source of law is a bad principle, for the disobedient and the rebellious will always demand more. Modernists will never be satisfied with what they have achieved. Rebellion is not contained with permissiveness. The facts have shown it: evil is not stopped, but, on the contrary, it is multiplied.

“If Any Man Come to You And Bring Not This Doctrine (Catholic doctrine), Receive Him Not Into The House Nor Say To Him: God Speed You” (2 Jn. 1:10).

PASTORAL dispositions or acts (as in the case of this video) do not have the prerogative of infallibility that the teachings on faith and morality do when they fulfill all the conditions that the Church demands for it.

- “Bear not the yoke with unbelievers. For what participation hath justice with injustice? Or what fellowship hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? Or what part hath the faithful with the unbeliever?”
“And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God: as God saith: I will dwell in them and walk among them. And I will be their God: and they shall be my people.”
“Wherefore: Go out from among them and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing.”
(2 Cor. 6, 14:17)

- “But the things which the heathens sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils and not to God. And I would not that you should be made partakers with devils; You cannot drink the chalice of the Lord and the chalice of devils: you cannot be partakers of the table of the Lord and of the table of devils.”
(1 Cor. 10, 20:21)

- No man cometh to the Father, but by Jesus Christ (Jn. 14:6). For there is no other name under heaven given to men, whereby we must be saved (Acts 4:12). He (Christ) was the true light, which enlighteneth every man that cometh into this world (Jn. 1:9). He that followeth Him walketh not in darkness (Jn. 8:12). He that is not with Him, is against Him (Mt. 12:30). He who honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father who hath sent him (Jn. 5:23). To Him the Father hath given all judgment (Jn. 5:22). He that doth not believe is already judged: because he believeth not in the name of the only begotten Son of God (Jn. 3:18). The only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom thou hast sent (Jn. 17:3).

- “For all the gods of the Gentiles are devils” (Ps. 95:5).

- God said to Moses: “Destroy their altars, break their statues and cut down their groves (consecrated to their idols). Adore not any strange god. The Lord his name is jealous, he is a jealous God” (Ex. 34, 13:13)

- “If Any Man Come to You And Bring Not This Doctrine (Catholic doctrine), Receive Him Not Into The House.” (Note: This order is not a lack of charity but due to caution). (2 Jn. 1:10).

How, then, does the Pope participated in this video where it is said exactly the opposite to God's Word and where it is proclaimed, furthermore, that it does not matter which side the mountain is climbed on (symbol of life towards Eternity) and that all religions must help each other to "arrive" (sic) at the same time to the summit (it is implicitly understood that this means Heaven), as it is EXPLICITLY indicated that it is necessary to honor ALL false religions?

- “Who is a liar, but he who denieth that Jesus is the Christ? This is Antichrist, who denieth the Father and the Son. Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father. As for you, let that which you have heard from the beginning abide in you. If that abide in you, which you have heard from the beginning, you also shall abide in the Son and in the Father. And this is the promise which he hath promised us, life everlasting” (1 Jn. 2:22-26).

- St. Athanasius (fourth century): "Everyone who wants to be saved, above all must maintain the Catholic faith; And he who does not keep it whole and inviolable, will surely perish forever.”

A Little Humor

“Amen I say to you, unless you be converted, and become as little children, you shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.” Mt. XVIII, 3

If This Is Not The End Of Times, Then It Must Be The Rehearsal!

In some countries things are more "advanced", and they try to lead us all in the same direction.
What crazy times we live in!
They want priests to get married, and married people to get divorced.
They want heterosexuals to live together without marriage, because love should be "free," and they want homosexuals to "get married."
They want women to dress like men, and men to dress like women.
They want to hail as "brave" those who come out of the closet, and they demonize as "intolerant" and "fascist" anyone who is proud of their heterosexuality.
They want to recognize the “right” for an adult male to believe and act as a little girl (and be protected as such) and at the same time they want to pervert children, from a very young age, by indoctrinating them with such things as Gender Ideology that deforms their sexuality.
They want to encourage sexuality of minors but they don’t want to increase birth rates or school dropouts because of pregnancies (that is why they have micro-abortives and abortions).
They want to protect the lives of animals and, at the same time, they allow a pregnant teenager to murder her child without their parents knowing.
They talk about the rights of children, but they deny them the right to have a father and a mother (with homosexual adoptions) or the most basic right to life, with the authorization of "legal" abortion.
They want to encourage free sex changes and abortions, even though there are no resources for free coverage of many serious illnesses or medical coverage for all the people, or when there is no adequate space in hospitals.
They want to exalt "freedom", in order to eliminate the conscientious objection of doctors and nurses who do not want to practice abortions, but they want to legally prevent a psychologist from trying to reverse the homosexual tendency in someone who asked them to do it.
They want to prohibit any sign or public religious cult, which they consider a violation to "secularism" and "disrespectful" to non-believers, but they want to allow, in the name of "freedom", people to commit sacrileges and to profane religious images and temples.
And all this without analyzing what happens inside the Church, which is besieged by fifth columnists who are trying to make a global masonic cult that includes all religions.
If this is not the end of times, then it must be the rehearsal!

This is the Time to Build

Remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead, a descendant of David: such is my gospel, for which I am suffering, even to the point of chains, like a criminal. But the word of God is not chained. Therefore, I bear with everything for the sake of those who are chosen, so that they too may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus, together with eternal glory. This saying is trustworthy: If we have died with him we shall also live with him; if we persevere we shall also reign with him. But if we deny him he will deny us. If we are unfaithful he remains faithful, for he cannot deny himself. (2 Tim. 2:8-13)

Dear brethren, some of you are worried about the situation in the church, and about the strength of your own faith, feeling alone in your worries and anxieties; but it should not be so. It is now time to remember how the Lord was on the Cross. How is He every day in all of the tabernacles in the world? He is lonely. We always have Him there ready to keep us company. You shouldn’t feel alone.

Standing by the cross of Jesus were his mother and his mother’s sister, Mary the wife of Clopas, and Mary Magdalene (Jn 19:25). Where were the others? Remember what St. Paul said, “an athlete cannot receive the winner’s crown except by competing according to the rules” (2 Tim. 2:5). The Lord will help you to understand this in your particular situation. Remember Jesus Christ, raised from the dead, a descendant of David. This is the good news that the Apostle preached, for which he suffered and was chained. But, the Word of God is not chained.

Continuing, the Apostle said, telling everyone, “Therefore, I bear with everything for the sake of those who are chosen, so that they too may obtain the salvation that is in Christ Jesus, together with eternal glory.” This teaching is worthy of faith: If we have died with Him, we will live with Him. The very same St. Paul tells us, and encourages us in our efforts to continue living the faith and to keep it alive.

The Lord gave us the freedom to do good or to do evil; it’s our choice. But it is true that He who only does good, and Who does it freely, is reproached, His teaching questioned, and He is put into doubt. This is the time to build what others have destroyed. The Lord’s teachings are living and actual, because He is unchanging.

You wonder, “Who strengthens me in the faith? I am alone.” You are strengthened in faith in the Tradition of the Catholic Church, the Sacred Scriptures, the Magisterium. The strength of the Word of God which condemns the sin of sodomy, or of adultery. The Lord our God said this. Was not St. Paul alone? Are you afraid? What do we have to be afraid of? No one can force our silence because the Lord is with us, because we preach His Divine Word, His Word of Eternal Life. The Apostles died out of love of God. Are we going to be afraid? Our time is not worse than St. Paul’s, and he condemned those who were living in sin. So will we be afraid in the face of a group of Shepherds who pretend to scare us?

We have to raise our voices to speak the Truth, each one in his particular state, and in the way that the Lord wants him to do. We have to evangelize. Evangelize? Yes. All that the Church teaches us in Tradition, the Catechism, the Sacred Scriptures. Because if not, we will only find the word of man and not the Word of God. We know the Word of God, the Lord shows Himself to us in the Magisterium of the Church that we have received, and He wants us to bring Himself to others.

Dear brethren, right now it seems as if the Lord has loosened the reigns on the Church, but He has never let them go. Our time is not worse than others. We cannot complain when our brethren die as martyrs for the Faith. We have to spearhead the fight with the Word on our side. And the we will find our strength in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. The world and its fleeting powers should not matter to us, because the Lord is the One Who defends His Word and His Truth. He who is anxious is one who sees the world and not Heaven.

You wonder, “How do I know if I am acting according to the Will of God if I find myself alone and without help from anyone?” Well, because the Lord is with us, and even more, he warns us of the dangers. The Church perfectly tells us what is good and what is evil. TRADITION is the unquestionable authority. Here you have the answer. Follow the Faith that Tradition has passed on, and may the Lord be with you.

It is time to preach the Word of God, the teachings that we have received which, unalterable, are as relevant yesterday, as they are today, as they will be tomorrow. It is time to fight with the Word on our side; it is time to run our race without measuring our strength; it is time to think only about our final crown.

It is the time to build what others have destroyed.

Hail Mary Most Pure.

Fr. Juan Manuel Rodriguez de la Rosa

Advice On How to Govern, Given by Don Quixote to Sancho Panza

Incredible validity of the teachings of Cervantes for the art of governing


“Sancho: attend, my son, to thy Cato here who would counsel thee and be thy polestar and guide to direct and pilot thee to a safe haven out of this stormy sea wherein thou art about to ingulf thyself; for offices and great trusts are nothing else but a mighty gulf of troubles:

1. “First of all, my son, thou must fear God, for in the fear of him is wisdom, and being wise thou canst not err in aught.”

2. “Secondly, thou must keep in view what thou art, striving to know thyself, the most difficult thing to know that the mind can imagine. If thou knowest thyself, it will follow thou wilt not puff thyself up like the frog that strove to make himself as large as the ox.”

3. “Glory in thy humble birth, Sancho, and he not ashamed of saying thou art peasant-born; for when it is seen thou art not ashamed no one will set himself to put thee to the blush; and pride thyself rather upon being one of lowly virtue than a lofty sinner. Countless are they who, born of mean parentage, have risen to the highest dignities, pontifical and imperial, and of the truth of this I could give thee instances enough to weary thee.”

4. “Remember, Sancho, if thou make virtue thy aim, and take a pride in doing virtuous actions, thou wilt have no cause to envy those who have princely and lordly ones, for blood is an inheritance, but virtue an acquisition, and virtue has in itself alone a worth that blood does not possess.”

5. “Let the tears of the poor man find with thee more compassion, but not more justice, than the pleadings of the rich. Strive to lay bare the truth, as well amid the promises and presents of the rich man, as amid the sobs and entreaties of the poor.”

6. “If perchance thou permittest the staff of justice to swerve, let it be not by the weight of a gift, but by that of mercy. If it should happen thee to give judgment in the cause of one who is thine enemy, turn thy thoughts away from thy injury and fix them on the justice of the case. Let not thine own passion blind thee in another man's cause; for the errors thou wilt thus commit will be most frequently irremediable; or if not, only to be remedied at the expense of thy good name and even of thy fortune.”

7. “If any handsome woman come to seek justice of thee, turn away thine eyes from her tears and thine ears from her lamentations, and consider deliberately the merits of her demand, if thou wouldst not have thy reason swept away by her weeping, and thy rectitude by her sighs.”

8. “Abuse not by word him whom thou hast to punish in deed, for the pain of punishment is enough for the unfortunate without the addition of thine objurgations.”

9. “Bear in mind that the culprit who comes under thy jurisdiction is but a miserable man subject to all the propensities of our depraved nature, and so far as may be in thy power show thyself lenient and forbearing; for though the attributes of God are all equal, to our eyes that of mercy is brighter and loftier than that of justice.”

10. “If thou followest these precepts and rules, Sancho, thy days will be long, thy fame eternal, thy reward abundant, thy felicity unutterable; thou wilt marry thy children as thou wouldst; they and thy grandchildren will bear titles; thou wilt live in peace and concord with all men; and, when life draws to a close, death will come to thee in calm and ripe old age, and the light and loving hands of thy great-grandchildren will close thine eyes.”

“What I have thus far addressed to thee are instructions for the adornment of thy mind.”

Involution: The Current Apostasy Resembles Behavior in Pagan Times

  • God is not glorified or thanked anymore, and modern man surrenders to his passions.
  • "Sexual perversion is so widespread, is a consequence of the apostasy of our century, which resembles the pagan times indicated by St. Paul": Mgr John Straubinger.

“For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and injustice of those men that detain the truth of God in injustice: Because that which is known of God is manifest in them. For God hath manifested it unto them. For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made. His eternal power also and divinity: so that they are inexcusable. Because that, when they knew God, they have not glorified him as God or given thanks: but became vain in their thoughts. And their foolish heart was darkened. For, professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. And they changed the glory of the incorruptible God into the likeness of the image of a corruptible man and of birds, and of fourfooted beasts and of creeping things.

“Wherefore, God gave them up to the desires of their heart, unto uncleanness: to dishonour their own bodies among themselves. Who changed the truth of God into a lie and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. For this cause, God delivered them up to shameful affections. For their women have changed the natural use into that use which is against nature. God delivered them up. And, in like manner, the men also, leaving the natural use of the women, have burned in their lusts, one towards another: men with men, working that which is filthy and receiving in themselves the recompense which was due to their error. And as they liked not to have God in their knowledge, God delivered them up to a reprobate sense, to do those things which are not convenient. Being filled with all iniquity, malice, fornication, avarice, wickedness: full of envy, murder, contention, deceit, malignity: whisperers, detractors, hateful to God, contumelious, proud, haughty, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, foolish, dissolute: without affection, without fidelity, without mercy.”

Romans, 1, 18-31

Let Us Repent Following the Example of the Prodigal Son by Saint Alphonsus Maria de Liguori

How can worldlings, living in sin, amidst earthly pleasures and dangerous occasions hope for a happy death? God forewarns sinners that in death they shall seek Him, and shall not find Him: "You shall seek me, and shall not find me." (Jn 7:34.) God says, that then will be the time for vengeance, not for mercy: “Revenge is mine, and I will repay them in due time” (Dt. 32:35).

Reason tells us the same; for at the hour of death, a worldly man will find himself weak in mind; his heart obscured and hardened because of his evil habits: his temptations will be stronger; and how will he be able to resist at the hour of death, who during life was so often and so easily conquered?* An all-powerful Divine grace would be needed to change his heart; but is God obliged to give him this grace? Has he deserved it, with the unholy life he has led?... And yet this is a question of eternal happiness or eternal misery… How is it then possible that, reflecting on this, he who believes in the truths of faith does not give up everything to give himself entirely to God, who will judge us according to our works?

- oOo -

O my Heavenly Physician, cast Thine eyes upon my poor soul, look upon the many wounds I have inflicted upon myself by my sins, and have pity on me. I know that Thou canst and wilt heal me; but to be healed Thou desirest that I repent of the injuries I have done Thee. Yes, I do repent of them with all my heart; heal me, then, now that Thou canst heal me. “Heal my soul, for I have sinned against Thee” (Psalms 40:5). I have forgotten Thee, but Thou hast not forgotten me; and now Thou makest me feel that Thou wilt also forget my past offenses against Thee if I detest them. “But if the wicked do penance, I will not remember all his iniquities.” (Ezech. 18:21). Behold, I now detest and abhor them above every evil… forget, then, O my Redeemer, all the grief I have caused Thee. In future, I will lose all, even life itself, rather than Thy grace. And of what use to me are all the goods of this world without Thy grace?... Ah, assist me:_ for Thou knowest how weak I am! Hell will not cease tempt me; already it prepares for me a thousand assaults, to make me once more its slave. No, my Jesus, do not forsake me. From this day hence forth I will be the slave of Thy love. Thou art my only Lord, Thou hast created me, Thou hast redeemed me, Thou hast loved me beyond all others… Thou alone deserves to be loved, Thee only will I love.

*Editor’s Note: It is true that after a life of constant sin there may be exceptional cases of genuine repentance and perfect contrition at the time of death, having time for it, but exceptional cases, such as Dimas’ story, are that . However, the norm is that one dies as one lives, for the hardness of heart that generates a constant sinful life hardly breaks. Hence the importance of always living in a state of sanctifying grace, or of recovering it, if unfortunately it has been lost. If we have had a bad life, let us follow, in time, the example of the prodigal son and let us keep on the grace and friendship of God.

People Who Are Shallow, Egotistic and Mundane Are Empty
