"Uncompromising Catholic Militancy"


[In response to someone who begged him (Saint Pius X) to "go soft" on the Modernists, He retorted]: "Kindness is for fools! They want them to be treated with oil, soap, and caresses but they ought to be beaten with fists! In a duel you don't count or measure the blows, you strike as you can! War is not made with charity, it is a struggle a duel. If Our Lord were not terrible he would not have given an example in this too. See how he treated the Philistines, the sowers of error, the wolves in sheep's clothing, the traitors in the temple. He scourged them with whips!"

Ecclesiastical Approbation

In Today's Catholic World carries the approbation in writing of the (True) Petrine Hierarchy in exile i.e., connected with Pope Gregory XVII. It faithfully adheres to the rules for Catholic Journals mandated by Leo XIII in the Apostolic Constitution Officiorum ac Munerum, January 25, 1897 - so heavily re-stressed by Pius X in Pascendi Dominici Gregis, September 8, 1907.

St. Ignatius of Antioch - "Let no one do anything of concern to the Church without the bishop. Let that be considered a valid Eucharist which is celebrated by the bishop or by one whom he ordains [i.e., a presbyter]. Wherever the bishop appears, let the people be there; just as wherever Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic Church." (Letter to the Smyrneans 8:2 - 110 A.D.)

Eternity
Every Catholics Goal: Heaven


"He (St. James) began his spiritual war against the devil, the world and the flesh, with assiduous prayer, and extraordinary fasts and watchings: and the fervour of his first beginnings was, by his fidelity in corresponding with divine grace, crowned with such constancy and perseverance, as never to suffer any abatement."

THE LIFE OF ST. JAMES OF LA MARCA OF ANCONA: MODEL OF PERSEVERANCE
In Today's Catholic World (TCW)
November 28, 2007 A.D.
(Minneapolis)

The following interesting story of the life of the holy Franciscan: St. James of La Marca of Ancona (Confessor) - comes from Father Alban Butler's: The Lives of the Primitive Fathers, Martyrs, and other Principal Saints, Vol. XI Edinburgh, 1799 A.D., ppg. 474-476, Imprimatur. St. James (whose feast is today - Nov. 28th) was a renowned model of perseverance and fervor, who fully understood his and every mans main business in life:
To save their soul.


St James of La Marca of Ancona, C. (d. 1476)

"The small town of Montbrandon, in the Marca of Ancona, the ancient Picenum, a province of the ecclesiastical state in Italy, gave birth to this saint. His parents, though of low condition, were very virtuous, and educated him in sentiments of true piety and religion. A neighbouring priest taught him Latin, he was young when he was sent to the university of Perugia, where his progress in learning soon qualified him to be chosen preceptor to a young gentleman of Florence. This student's father, who was a magistrate in that city, was much taken with the virtue and prudence of our saint, engaged him to accompany his son to Florence, and procured him a considerable post in that republic. St. James observed, that in the hurry of worldly business men easily forget to converse sufficiently with God and themselves, and that shutting themselves up in it, they become part of that vortex which hurries time and the world away without looking any farther: also, that whilst we hear continually the discourse of men, we are apt insensibly to take in, and freight ourselves with the vices of men. Against these dangers, persons who live in the world, must use the antidote of conversing much with God. This James did by assiduous prayer and recollection, in which exercises he found such charms that he resolved to embrace a religious and penitential life.

These were the dispositions of his soul when, travelling near Assisium, he went into the great church of the Portiuncula to pray, and being animated by the fervour of the holy religious men who there served God, and by the example of their blessed founder St Francis, he determined to petition in that very place for the habit of the Order. The brethren received him with open arms, and he was sent to perform his noviciate is a small austere convent near Assisium, called, Of the prisons.

Make a Choice: Eternal Heaven or Eternal Hell
Image of a French Holy card published by R. Pannier, Paris, in the late 19th century. In French, top of the card: “Eternity. You, mortal, who has an immortal soul, study, meditate, ponder over this great word: ETERNITY.” Frame: “Do the good while there is time. Ponder over Death to live well and to die well. Think about death, give up sin, stay out of the world, give yourself up to God. Death is certain, only its hour is uncertain.” Inside the frame: “Prepare for a good death through a good life, for time is short. Today is my turn, tomorrow yours. I have been, you shall be what I am. Pray for the souls in Purgatory. They expect your prayers and the relief of their plight. Make a choice. Eternal Heaven. Eternal Hell.”


He began his spiritual war against the devil, the world and the flesh, with assiduous prayer, and extraordinary fasts and watchings: and the fervour of his first beginnings was, by his fidelity in corresponding with divine grace, crowned with such constancy and perseverance, as never to suffer any abatement. After the year of his probation was completed, he returned to the Portiuncula, and by his solemn vows offered himself an holocaust to God. For forty years he never passed a day without taking the discipline; he always wore either a rough hair shirt, or an iron coat of mail armed with short spikes: allowing himself only three hours for sleep, he spent the rest of the night in holy meditation and prayer: flesh meat he never touched, and he eat so little that it seemed a miracle how he could live. He said mass every day with wonderful devotion.

Out of a true spirit of humility and penance he was a great lover of poverty, and it was a subject of joy to him to see himself often destitute of the most necessary things. He copied for himself most of the few books he allowed himself the use of, and he always wore a mean threadbare habit. His purity during the course of his whole life was spotless; and he shunned as much as possible all conversation with the opposite sex, and made this very short, when it was necessary for their spiritual direction; and he never looked any woman in the face. In the practice of obedience he was so exact, that once having received an order to go abroad, when he had lifted up the cup near his mouth to drink, he set it down again, and went out immediately without drinking; for he was afraid to lose the merit of obedience by the least delay. His zeal for the salvation of souls seemed to have no bounds, and for forty years together he never passed a single day without preaching the word of God either to the people or to the religious of his own Order. His exhortations were vehement and efficacious: by one sermon at Milan he converted thirty-six lewd women to a most fervent course of penance.


Franciscan Monastery
Picture of an Anonymous Franciscan Friar c. 1920

Being chosen archbishop of that city he fled, and being taken, he prevailed by entreaties and persuasions to be allowed to pursue his call in the functions of a private religious missionary. He accompanied St. John Capistran in some of his missions in Germany, Bohemia, and Hungary, and was sent thrice by popes Eugenius IV. Nicholas V. And Calixtus III. into this last kingdom. He wrought several miracles at Venice and at other places, and raised from dangerous sicknesses the duke of Calabria and king of Naples. A question was at that time agitated with great warmth, particularly between the Franciscan and Dominican friars, whether the precious blood of Christ, which was separated from the body during his passion, remained always hypostatically united to the divine word; and St. James was accused by the inquisition of having advanced the negative: but was dismissed with honour.

The saint died of a most painful cholic in the convent of the Holy Trinity, of his Order, near Naples on the 28th of November, in the year 1476, being ninety years old, of which he had spent seventy in a religious state. His body is enshrined in a rich chapel which bears his name in the church called Our Lady's the New, at Naples. He was beatified by Urban VIII. And canonized in 1726 by Benedict XIII. Who had been himself an eye-witness to a miracle performed of a person that had recourse to his intercession. See his life by Mark of Lisbon, bishop of Porto, and in verse by Sanazar: also the life of Benedict XIII. by Touron, T. 6."

Catholics are called to nothing short of perfection

"Let us not pass rapidly over truths so calculated to inspire us with a holy horror of even the smallest violations of the adorable will of God, so capable of exciting our zeal, our vigilance, our efforts to shun even the smallest evil. Like him "who will not understand that he may do well," we should be in danger of "falling, and being cast out" by the Lord; or like those "fools who despise wisdom and instruction," we should deserve to be ourselves "despised" by the Most High, and delivered up to our own reprobate sense. Rather let us meditate on these salutary truths, and endeavor to derive from them that pious fear which "neglecteth nothing," and which has always before it the great maxim of our divine Master, "He that is faithful in that which is least, is faithful also in that which is greater; and he that is unjust in that which is little, is unjust also in that which is greater."
(Extract from Abbe M. Orsini, Rev. Fr. Henry Formby, and John Gilmary Shea's, book on the Holy Rosary 1887 A.D.)

St. Thomas Aquinas teaches the Catholic obligation to denounce sinners: "I answer that, With regard to the public denunciation of sins it is necessary to make a distinction: because sins may be either public or secret. On the case of public sins, a remedy is required not only for the sinner, that he may become better, but also for others, who know of his sin, lest they be scandalized. Wherefore such like sins should be denounced in public, according to the saying of the Apostle (1 Tim. 5:20): “Them that sin reprove before all, that the rest also may have fear,” which is to be understood as referring to public sins, as Augustine states (De Verb. Dom. xvi, 7). On the other hand, in the case of secret sins, the words of Our Lord seem to apply (Mt. 18:15): “If thy brother shall offend against thee,” etc. For if he offend thee publicly in the presence of others, he no longer sins against thee alone, but also against others whom he disturbs. Since, however, a man’s neighbor may take offense even at his secret sins, it seems that we must make yet a further distinction. For certain secret sins are hurtful to our neighbor either in his body or in his soul, as, for instance, when a man plots secretly to betray his country to its enemies, or when a heretic secretly turns other men away from the faith. And since he that sins thus in secret, sins not only against you in particular, but also against others, it is necessary to take steps to denounce him at once, in order to prevent him doing such harm. (Summa, II-II, q. 33, art. 7.)

TCW'S - PROPHECIES FOR THE ELECT (EDITION #3) - PAPAL PROPHECY OF ST. JOHN BOSCO
In Today's Catholic World (TCW)
November 25, 2007 A.D.
(Minneapolis)

The following Catholic prophecy is from St. John Bosco. It speaks of chastisements to nations for sin (a form of God's mercy in this short life) and relates Heaven's voice to the Shepherd of the shepherds/Venerable Old Man- a (seemingly displaced) Pope. The Editor of TCW believes a large portion of this important prophecy is applicable right now.

St. John Bosco: Prophet for Our (End) Times


St. John Bosco's Famous Papal Prophecy: "The Venerable Old Man"

(Extracted from the book: The Prophets and Our Times, by Fr. Culleton, 1941 A.D. Imprimatur)


173a. St. John Bosco (d. 1888)

"War comes from the south, peace from the north. French laws no longer recognize the Creator, but the Creator will make himself recognized and will visit her thrice with the rod of His wrath. In the first visit he breaks her pride by conquest, plundering ruined harvest and butchery of men and beasts.

"In the second visit the great Prostitute of Babylon, which makes decent people sigh and call the Brothel of Europe, will be left without a leader and will be a victim of disorder.

"Paris! ... Paris! Instead of arming yourself in the name of the Lord, you fortify yourself with Houses of Immorality. They will be destroyed by you yourself. Your idol, The Pantheon, will be burnt to ashes in order that this may come true: ‘violence uttereth lies against me.’ Your enemies will reduce you to want, to hunger, to fear, and will make you the abomination of nations. Ah, woe to you, if you do not recognize the hand that strikes you! I want to punish immorality, the despising of, and the contempt for My law, says the Lord.

"In the third visit you will fall into the hands of foreigners. Your enemies standing afar off will behold your palaces in flames. Your homes will become a heap of ruins bathed with the blood of your heroes who are no more.

"But there will be a great warrior from the North carrying a banner and on the right hand that supports it is written: "The Irresistible Hand of the Lord." At that very moment there went out to meet him the Venerable Old Man of Lazio, holding aloft a brilliantly glowing torch. The banner then increased in size and turned from black to snow-white. In the middle of the banner, in letters of gold, there was written the name of Him who is able to do all things.

"The warrior with his men bowed and shook hands with the Venerable Old Man.

"Now Heaven’s voice is addressed to the Shepherd of the shepherds. You are now in conference with your advisors. The enemy of the good does not stand idle for one moment. He studies and practices all his arts against you. He will sow discord amongst your consultors; He will raise up enemies amongst my children. The powers of the world will belch forth fire, and they would that the words be suffocated in the throats of the custodians of my law. That will not happen. They will do harm - harm to themselves. You must hurry. If you cannot untie the knots, cut them. If you find yourself hard pressed, do not give up but continue until the head of the hydra of error is cut off. This stroke will make the world and Hell beneath it tremble, but the world will be safe and all the good will rejoice. Keep your consultors always with you, even if only two. Wherever you go, continue to bring to an end the work entrusted to you. The days fly by, your years will reach the destined number; but the great Queen (Mary) will ever be your help, and in times past so in the future She will always be the exceeding great fortress of the Church.

"Ah, but you, Italy, land of blessings! Who has steeped you in desolation? Blame not your enemies, but rather your friends. Can you not hear your children asking for the bread of faith and find only those who smash it to pieces? What shall I do? I shall strike the shepherds, I shall disperse the flock, until those sitting on the throne of Moses search for good pastures and the flock listens attentively and is fed.

"Over the flock and over the shepherds My hand will weigh heavy. Famine, pestilence and war will be such that mothers will have to cry on account of the blood of their sons and of their martyrs dead in a hostile country.

"And to you, Rome, what will happen? Ungrateful Rome, effeminate Rome, proud Rome! You have reached such a height that you search no further. You admire nothing else in your Sovereign except luxury, forgetting that you and your glory stands upon Golgotha. Now he is old, defenseless, and despoiled; and yet at his word, the word of one who was in bondage, the whole world trembles.

"Rome! To you I will come four times!

"The first time, I shall strike your land and the inhabitants thereof.

"The second time, I shall bring the massacre and the slaughter even to your very walls. And will you not yet open your eyes?

"I shall come a third time and I shall beat down to the ground your defenses and the defenders, and at the command of the Father, the reign of terror, of dreadful fear, and of desolation shall enter into your city.

"But My wise men have now fled and My law is even now trampled under foot. Therefore I will make a fourth visit. Woe to you if My law shall still be considered as empty words. There will be deceit and falsehood amongst both the learned and the ignorant. Your blood and that of your children will wash upon your stains upon God’s law. War, pestilence, famine are the rods to scourge men’s pride and wickedness. O wealthy men, where is your glory now, your estates, your palaces? They are rubble on the highways and byways.

"And you priests, why have you not run to ‘cry between the vestibule and the Altar,’ begging God to end these scourges? Why have you not, with the shield of faith, gone upon the housetops, into the homes, along the highways and byways, into every accessible corner to carry the seed of My word? Know you not that this is the terrible two-edged sword that cuts down my enemies and that breaks the Anger of God and of men?

"These things must come one after another. They are inexorable.

"Things are happening too slowly.

"But the August Queen of Heaven is present.

"The power of the Lord is in His hands. He scatters His enemies as a cloud. The Venerable Old Man attires himself in all his ancient raiment.

"There will come again a violent hurricane.

"Iniquity is consummated. Sin will have its end. And before two full moons of the month of the flowers will have run their course, the rainbow of peace will rise above the earth.

"The Great Minister will see the bride of his King arrayed in festive fashion.

"Throughout the world the sun will appear so luminous that the like of which never has been seen since the tongues of fire descended on the Cenacle until this day, nor will such a sun ever be seen again until the very last of days.

173b. "It was a dark night. Man could no longer tell which way to take in order to return to their homes. Of a sudden there appeared in the heavens a very bright light that illuminated the steps of the travelers as though it were midday. At that moment there was seen a host of men and women, of young and old, of nuns, monks and priests with the Holy Father at the head. They were going out from the Vatican and were arranging themselves in line for procession.

"Then there came a furious storm which clouded that light somewhat and made it appear that light and darkness were engaged in battle. In the meantime they arrived at a little square covered with dead and wounded, some of whom cried aloud and asked for help.

"Very many were dropping out of the line of procession. After having walked for a time that would correspond to two hundred risings of the sun (200 days) they all realized that they were no longer in Rome. Struck with fear they all ran to the Holy Father to defend him personally and to attend his wants. Instantly two angels were seen carrying a banner, going they presented it to the Holy Father and said: ‘Receive the banner of He Who fights and scatters the strongest armies of the world. Your enemies are dispersed. Your children with tears and sighs beg you to return.’

"Looking at the banner one could see written on one side, ‘Queen conceived without sin’; and on the other side, ‘Help of the Christians.’

"The Holy Father joyfully took the banner, but looking closely at the small number of those who remained with him, he became very sad.

"The two angels added; ‘Go quickly to console your children. Write your brothers dispersed throughout the world that there must be a reform in the morals of men. That cannot be obtained except by distributing to the people the bread of the Divine Word. Catechize the children. Preach the detaching of the heart from the things that are of the earth. ‘The time will come,’ concluded the two angels, ‘when the poor shall evangelize the people. Vocations will come from among those working with the spade, the axe, and the hammer to the end that they fulfill the words of David: God has raised up the poor from the land in order to place them on the thrones of the princes of His people.’

"Having heard that the Holy Father began the march. The farther he went the greater did the procession behind increase. When finally he set foot in the Holy City, he wept bitter tears for the distress in which he found the people and the large number now missing. As he entered St. Peter’s he intoned the ‘Te Deum’ to which a choir of angels replied singing: ‘Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to men of good will.’

"With the ending of the hymn there came an end to the thick darkness and the sun shone with a brightness all its own.

"The cities, towns, and villages were thinly populated. The land had been leveled down as if by a hurricane, by a tempest, and a hail storm. People went from one another saying in tones of great emotion: ‘there is a God in Israel.’

"From the beginning of the exile until the singing of the ‘Te Deum,’ the sun rose in the East two hundred times (200 days). The time that passed for the fulfilling of those things (all spoken above) corresponds to four hundred risings of the sun. [END]

Cardinal Manning citing the universal testimony of the Fathers of the early Church about The Apostasy "The apostasy of the city of Rome from the vicar of Christ and its destruction by Antichrist may be thoughts so new to many Catholics, that I think it well to recite the text of theologians of greatest repute. First Malvenda, who writes expressly on the subject, states as the opinion of Ribera, Gaspar Melus, Biegas, Suarrez, Bellarmine and Bosius that Rome shall apostatise from the faith, drive away the Vicar of Christ and return to its ancient paganism. ...Then the Church shall be scattered, driven into the wilderness, and shall be for a time, as it was in the beginning, invisible hidden in catacombs, in dens, in mountains, in lurking places; for a time it shall be swept, as it were from the face of the earth. Such is the universal testimony of the Fathers of the early Church." -Henry Edward Cardinal Manning, The Present Crisis of the Holy See, 1861, London: Burns and Lambert, pp. 88-90

The Church Approved La Civilta Cattolica: Christ's Vicar (Pope Pius IX) ordered the Jesuits to publish the journal Civilta Cattolica (Catholic Civilization) in Rome. One of its prime purposes was to combat attacks (by the Church's enemies) against the doctrine of St. Thomas Aquinas. The papal secretariat of state cleared every article before publication.

CONTEMPORANEOUS REPORTS
Florence, the 10th of November, 1881

Rome (Our Correspondence) - The Jew Vitale confirms what the Jew Israel revealed about the bloody Passover rite. He reveals the bloody Passover rites celebrated by him and his uncle Solomon that took place in Monza and Milan. He describes St. Little Simon's dreadful martyrdom and talks about his purpose and motivations.


By means of the interrogations reported in previous correspondence, the Jew Israel revealed all he knew about St. Little Simon's murder and the reasons for it. Thus, they started questioning the man who knew and revealed far more about it, according to the information that follows. This man is Vitale, factor, as it is written in the acts of the trial, or on the agent of Brunetta, Israel's mother. Israel is the man who was already questioned (as we have previously noted). We have already reported elsewhere that the name Vitale is nothing but a mere anagram for the word levita (levite). Likewise, the name Arbid is nothing but a mere anagram for rabbi. Jews often change their names when this suits them. Vitale had shown an extraordinary persistency in addition to a very peculiar cunning in feigning ignorance, during his first interview. Therefore, on the 13th of April, Sir Podestà of Trent set a trap into which Vitale was lured. He was put (Folio XXXIX verso) inside a wardrobe below the stairs (in armario quod est sub scala). The wardrobe was then locked (quod armarium postea fuit clausum). Afterward, Samuel's son, Israel, who had already been questioned and had pleaded guilty, was taken before the Court. Israel was standing beside the above-mentioned locked wardrobe with the unseen Vitale inside, as previously mentioned. Then Israel was asked "that he name those who were present when the child was murdered" (qui Israel, stans apud dictum armarium clausum, in quo erat Vitalis ut supra, fuit interrogatus: quod nominet qui fuerunt praesentes infrascripti, Samuel, Thobias, Vitalis et ipse Israel, una cum ceteris aliis).

Israel answered that both he and those whose names were written were present (qui Israel respondit quod fuerunt presentes infrascripti, Samuel, Thobias, Vitalis et ipse Israel, una cum ceteris aliis).

After he had said these things, they didn't make him speak further. He was led to prison. (quibus sic dictis, dictis Israel non passus est ultra loqui: sed reductus fuit ad carceres). Then, they had Vitale come out of the wardrobe. He was questioned in order to make him tell the truth. He answered that Sir Podestà had to be satisfied already with what Israel had confessed (respondit quod Dominus Potestas debet remanere contentus de eo quod confessus est dictus Israel).

Then, questioned about what Israel had said, he answered that Sir Podestà himself had heard very well what Israel had declared (respondit quod bene audivit ipse dominus potestas quod dixit).

They were not able to make him speak further at that time, except for when he was questioned on where the child had been murdered: he answered he had been killed in the kitchen (respondit quod fuit interfectus in coquina). When they asked him how he knew the child had been killed in the kitchen, he said nothing (interrogatus quid scit quod fuerit interfectus in coquina? Et tunc nihil respondit). Nevertheless, he promised he would tell the truth if they did not put him to death. So he was left alone and taken to prison (deponatis me: ego dicam veritatem: et tunc fuit depositus).

He had clearly understood there was no use in persisting in holding his tongue, after Israel had pleaded guilty, as Vitale heard, while standing inside the ward-robe. In part, Vitale himself had inadvertently confirmed Israel's confession. Therefore, on the 14th of April (Folio XL recto) as on the following 17th of the same month (Folio XLI verso), he finally began to speak the truth about the murder down to the smallest detail, as previous and following witnesses had done . As far as its cause was concerned - in which we are particularly interested here - he added further unknown, unheard-of details to those referred by Israel.


St. Simon of Trent
St. Simon of Trent was mercilessly butchered by members
of the Body of Antichrist (The Jews) for their satanic blood ritual


Those details are the subject of the current correspondence.

On the 18th of April, when he was questioned why he needed to obtain the above- mentioned child's blood (Folio XLI verso: ad quem finem cupiebat habere de sanguine dicti pueri), he answered that he needed his blood to put it into their unleavened pastries to be eaten at Passover (respondit: ut de illo sanguine haberet; et poneret in pasta de qua faciunt suas azimas: quas azimas postea comedunt in die pasce eorum). We cannot avoid stressing that Vitale, like Israel as well, when questioned on the cause of the murder, he did not say he had the aim of insulting the Christian Easter; for his aim was to only celebrate their [own feast] (ut de illo sangune haberet et poneret in pasta de qua faciunt suas azimas). This is better explained as follows; for when he was asked about the reason why they punctured the child and tore his flesh in such a way (ad quem finem ita pupugit puerum et ita dilaceraverunt carnes eius?) -- as it was natural to insist upon knowing if there were any other reasons for this behavior - and why it was their custom to consume the blood of Christian children (et ad quem finem comedunt sanguinem pueri cristiani), he answered he had already spoken of it (respondit se dixisse) by saying only: "There is no other reason, as far as I know, except for the need we Jews have to get Christian blood in order to properly celebrate our Passover." In order to point this out, he soon added: "It is necessary for Jews to get Christian boys' blood every year in order to put it into their unleavened pastries" (salvo quod est necesse ipsis iudeis habere de sanguine pueri cristiani, singulo anno, est de illo ponere in fugatiis azimorum), repeating what he had already declared, without even mentioning that the reason for it was to insult Christ and Christians. That impious rabbinical rite surely involves that second reason. But it is a subordinate reason, for the main one is to comply with a necessary, lawful rite of celebrating Passover. Since est necesse iudeis habere de sangune pueri cristiani, singulo anno: et de illo poneret in fugatiis azimorum, as we already knew from John of Feltre, Jew Sacchetto's son Israel, Samuel's son Vitale, and from Lady Brunetta's agent, almost in the very same words.

But we did not know yet what Vitale was to reveal as he continued speaking: he had learned what he said above from his elders -- that is to say, Samuel and Moses the Elder, both living in Trent, and from Solomon, Vitale's uncle, who was living in Monza, under the territorial jurisdiction of Milan (Prout dicit audivit a maioribus suis: videlicet a Samuele et a Moise antiquo habitatoribus Tridenti: et a Salomone patruo eius Vitalis, qui habitat Monzie territorii mediolanensis).

Vitale had lived with his uncle for almost three years. During this period, at Passovers, he used to eat some unleavened pastries with blood in them, as said before, according to what his uncle had told him (apud quem patruum ipse Vitalis stetit circas tres annos. Quo tempore, in die pasce sui, comedit de azimis cum sanguine, ut sopra: prout sibi dixit dictus eius patruus).

It would not be difficult for learned people of Monza to ascertain whether, in their history or archives, there are traces of these Jewish Passovers celebrated within their walls in the XVth century (and probably before and after that century), involving the consumption of their children's blood, by pious Solomon and Vitale, both living in the ghetto of Monza. It is unquestionable that judges from Trent may have in some way told the authorities of Monza about pious Passover customs of their Solomon. However, the fact is that it is unquestionable, since no kind of torture but the strength of truth could ever have extorted such a verisimilar confession from Vitale. In fact, nobody would have been able to figure out or suggest this: Vitale had spent three years of his life in Monza, together with his uncle Solomon, and each of those three years he and his uncle had eaten unleavened pastries flavoured with the blood of Monza at Passovers. Thus we can understand how authoritative and worthy of respect many local customs which deal with such Jewish murders are, especially going back to the Middle-Ages. In fact, we all know very well that Jews had been accustomed for long years to complying with their Passover laws by means of Christian blood in three towns: Tungros in Germany, Trent in the Tyrol, and Monza in Italy, which were considered very far apart from one other, especially in that period. What about elsewhere? And what about the period before and after this? And when could they have done it? In fact, theirs was a law, a universal and common one. This is to be revealed in detail during the trial we are examining.

Now, going on with Vitale's interrogation, he was asked once again (Folio XLI verso) if he had eaten unleavened buns flavoured with Christian boy's blood (An, hoc anno, ipse Vitalis comederit de azimis, in quibus esset de sanguine pueri cristiani).

He replied they had made some unleavened buns on Friday. Samuel and Moses told him they had put in those buns some Christian boy's blood, killed by them on Thursday. He said he otherwise did not know who put the blood in the buns. Bonaventura, Samuel's cook and baker, at any rate, did not (Respondit: in die Veneris Sancti fecerunt de azimis: sive fugatiis. Et Samuel et Moises dixerunt sibi quod n civ azimis, sive fugatiis, posuerunt de sanguine pueri cristiani, quem in die Iovis interfecerant. Et dicitse aliter nescirequis posuerit dictum sanguinem in azimis, sive fugatiis: nisi fuerit Bonaventura cocus, qui facit panem).


Heaven or Hell
"One who dies a Jew will be damned." -St. Vincent Ferrer


The interrogation of that day came to an end, as for the cause and purpose of the murder. On the 9th of June (Folio XLII recto and following) Vitale started talking about the occurrence and its rite (since he was the only one who had been present from beginning to end). He was then required to say the truth. He replied he was at Samuel's house during Jewish Easter [i.e., Passover], which fell on Thursday, the Christians' Holy Day. At the beginning of the night, unaware of the exact time, he went into the room before the Synagogue. The following people were inside: Moses the Elder, Samuel, his son Israel, Mohar, son of Moses the Elder, Mohar's son Bonaventura, the cook Bonaventura and Thobias. Samuel tied a handkerchief (unum faziolum) around the neck of a baby boy who was there. Moses the Elder, sitting on a bench (Banco Scampno), was holding the baby on his knee, while Moses and Samuel were tightening the handkerchief around baby's neck to prevent him from screaming aloud. Moses pulled out bits of flesh from his right jaw by means of some pincers he held in his hands. Samuel and Thobias did likewise. Thobias gathered in a bowl blood that was dripping at times from baby's jaw. Sometimes, Mohar held the bowl, as well. All the aforementioned persons had needles in their hands and they punctured the baby with them, while pronouncing some words in Hebrew that Vitale did not know. Then, with the same pincers, they pulled out some flesh from the outer right leg of the baby. He said he did not pay attention to who did it initially and who went on pulling out flesh from the baby's right leg. He said the blood dripping from the leg was gathered in a bowl. He ignored who was holding it. Then, Samuel and Moses, sitting on a bench, took the baby and put him between them. They made him stand, holding him upright with his hands like that. Moses was sitting by the baby's right side, holding him upright and holding his right arm extended. Samuel was doing the same thing, while sitting by the baby's left side. Thobias was holding his feet. In this way, being held upright and with his arms extended, the baby looked crucified. While he was held in this position, the aforementioned Jews gathered around the baby and punctured him with needles they had in their hands. Vitale punctured the baby, as well, as he said above. While they were doing such things, the baby died (Interrogatus quod melius dicat veritatem: respondit quod in die pasce ipsorum iudeorum, quod fuit in die Iovis, quem cristiani dicunt Sanctum diem, circam principium noctis, et aliter precise nescit dicere horam, ipse Vitalis existens in domo Samuelis, ivit in cameram, quae est ante Sinagogam; ubi etiam erant infrascripti: Moises Antiquus, Samuel Israel eius filius, Mohar filius Moisi Antiqui, Bonaventura filius Mohar, Bonaventura coquus, Thobias. Et ubi dictu Samuel ligavit unum faziolum (handkerchief) circa collum cuiusdam pueri ibi existentis; quem puerum Moises Antiquus, sedens super quodam bancho scampno, habebat super genibus: et quem faziolum dicti Moises et Samuel stringebant circa collum pueri, ne audiretur dum clamaret. Et Moises, cum tenalea quadam, quam habebat in manibus, extirpavit modicum de carne pueri maxille dextre. Et similiter fecerunt Samuel et Thobias. Qui Thobias, cum scutella quadam, aliquando colligebant (sic) sanguinem defluentem a maxilla pueri; et aliquando etiam Mohar tenebat scutellam. Et omnes suprascripti, et ipse Vitalis, habebant acus in manibus, cum cuibus pungebant dictum puerum; dicendo certa verba in hebraico, quae ipse nescit, et deinde, cum eadem tenalea, extirpaverunt de carne pueri in tibia dextra, ad latus exterius. Et nescit quis fuerit primus, nec secundus qui extirpaverunt carnes de tibia dextra. Et dicit quod sanguis, qui defluebat ex dicto vulnere tibie, colligebatur in una scutella. Et nescit quis teneret dictam scutellam. Et postmodum Samuel et Moises, sedentes super quadam bancho ibi posito, receperunt dictum puerum, et illum, inter se sedentes, erexerunt in pede. Et illum tenebant erectum in pedibus, manibus, hoc modo: quia Moises, sedens ad latus dextrum pueri, tenebat rectum puerum in pede, et tenebat brachium dextrum extensum. Similiter faciebat Samuel, qui erat ad latus sinistrum pueri, et Thobias (ut credit de Thobia) tenebat pedes pueri; ita quod puer, sic stans erectus et extensus cum brachiis, videretur crucifixus. Et puero sic stante, omnes suprascripti iudei circumstantes cum acubus, quas in manibus habebant, pungebant dictum puerum, et ipse etiam (Vitalis) pupugit, ut sopra dixit: et dum haed fierent, puer mortuus est).


His Holiness, Venerable Pope Pius IX
Ven. Pope Pius IX
"You must fight energetically, since you know very well what great wounds the undefiled Spouse of Christ Jesus has suffered, and how vigorous is the destructive attack of Her enemies. -His Holiness, Ven. Pope Pius IX

Those readers who believe those have been the most atrocious details of the murder, are totally wrong. This will be clear soon. Let's go on, for the moment, with the Levite Vitale's revelations.

From his revelations, we know that the Jews in Trent drew out (extirpaverunt) Blessed Little Simon's blood together with his flesh by the use of pincers (tenalea quadam), not by means of a small knife, which would have been easier and thus more natural. Now, why did they do this with pincers instead of a small knife? This is because, in the past, they had already used small knives to get the Christian baby's blood, as was the testimony during the course of the trial. The bodies cut by knives, instead of nippers, were found in their houses. So they were charged with having opened their veins to get the blood from bodies. Therefore, in order to deter people from thinking that Jews had committed those crimes, and to make people believe those wounds were not made by hand, they stopped cutting the flesh with a knife and started using nippers to draw out blood and tear the flesh of the babies who were kidnapped to honor their Passover by the use of the blood from those babies. We are going to hear Moses the Elder and Samuel about this, who are well-experienced Jews as far as Rabbinism's holy rites are concerned.

Then, Vitale (Folio XLIII recto) was questioned about what needles were used by them to puncture (quae acus erant ille cum quibus pungebant). He answered they were some copper needles (quod erant certe acus de rame). When they showed him some various needles... he chose a certain needle with a ball-grip (Elegit quandam acum a pomedello), saying that this needle with a ball-grip was similar to the needles they had used, as above (Dicens quod illa acus a pomedello est similis acubus, quibus usi fuerunt ut sopra). They were those kind of needles that in Italian are called spilletti or spillettoni, which have a round head, like a ball-grip. In Venetian they are called aghi col pomelo: acus a pomedello.

When he was questioned why they had hurt the baby in such a way and why they punctured him like that (Quare ita vulneraverunt dictum puerum et quarem illum ita pupugerunt), he replied they hurt him to have his blood, as he said above, and therefore they punctured him and stretched his arms in Jesus' memory (Respondit quod ideo vulneraverunt ut haberent sanguinem, ut sopra dixit: et quod ideo pupugerunt et extenderunt manus, in memoriam Iesu). As far as Vitale knew, it seems clear from his reply that the very first intention for that crime was ut haberent sanguinem (that they might have the blood), then availing themselves of the opportunity, to Hebraically renew the memory of Passion in memoriam Iesu.

Asked if this renewing Jesus' memory was for good or for bad purpose, he replied (interrogatus: in memoriam bonam, vel in memoriam malam) that they did it to show that they despised Jesus, the God of the Christians, and said that every year they renew His passion (Respondit quod fecerunt in contemptum et vilipendium Iesu Dei cristianorum: dicens quod omni anno faciunt memoriam dictae passionis).

When they asked him in what manner they renewed this memory (Quomodo faciunt illam memoriam), he answered that the Jews renewed this memory every year by putting some Christian boy's blood in their unleavened bread (Respondit quod ipsi iudei facunt memoriam dicte Passionis omni anno, quia ponunt de sanguine pueri cristiani omni anno in eorum azimis, sive fugatiis).

Vitale did not answer in this last reply of his (it was to be his last reply of his last interrogation) that the Jews renewed Jesus' Passion by despising Him, by positioning the boy as if he were crucified, or by means of those barbarous acts done in order to martyr him. He answered that they used to do this by flavouring their buns with Christian blood. However they were guilty of despising Jesus' memory and His Passion all the same, without expressly thinking about it. Their very purpose was to murder Christian children and take their blood to use in their pastries in honour of their Passover. This had always been their first answer to those who asked them their motivatations and the purpose for those murders. They would not mention the second answer, about insulting the memory of Jesus' Passion, if they were not asked to talk about it by the persistence of the inquiring judges' questions. Only then, when they were expressly questioned, did they seem to reflect upon that and remember they had committed such crimes not only to get blood for their unleavened cakes, but that they also used to practice those impious Passover rites of theirs in order to insult Christ and Christians. This was clear enough in the interrogation we have been discusssing up to now. It will be clearer in the following interrogation which we will report. Jews wouldn't have had any difficulties in admitting that secondary cause for the murder, if it were instead the primary one, for everyone knows of their hatred and contempt for Christ and Christians. That other Jewish rite of complying with their Passover by means of Christian blood, was most secret and arcane. They first were supposed to have confessed the well-known cause, reserving the occult one for further persistence and tortures, if they did not need further insistencies and tortures in order to remind the well-known cause. This is a clear evidence of the fact that the main cause, if it is not the only reason for their crime which first came to their minds and tongues, was not the well-known cause, but the occult one. The Christian court was very interested in the well-known cause as well, even if it was secondary. This had to be ascertained in order to point out the evidence for the reason of Blessed Little Simon's martyrdom, who was killed because of the hatred for the memory of Christ. It had to be determined even because those crimes against Jesus Christ and Christianity in Christian countries, where Jews were hardly tolerated, were expressly considered in the civil and ecclesiastical Laws under which which judges had to investigate, prosecute and punish.

That is enough as for the present correspondence. (END)

"Numerous are the waves, and great the tossing of the sea, but we have no fear of going down, for we stand upon the rock. ...The Church is stronger than heaven. Heaven and earth shall pass away, but My words shall not pass away. What words? Thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build My Church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it."
(From the Homily, Built Upon The Rock by St. John Chrysostom)


"By about twelve years shall the millennium have passed when the resplendent mantle of legitimate power shall emerge from the shadows where it was being kept by the schism. And beyond harm from the one [the usurper antipope] who is blocking the door of salvation, for his deceitful schism shall have come to an end."

A TRUE CATHOLIC SEMINARY IN UNION WITH POPE GREGORY XVII & SUCCESSORS?
In Today's Catholic World (TCW)
November 11, 2007 A.D.
(Minneapolis)

In Today's Catholic World is posting (for the first time ever) a picture of the Official Pontifical Funeral Mass that was held near Houston, Texas on May 5th 1989 A.D., for His Holiness, Gregory XVII. Pope Gregory XVII died in exile on May 2, 1989 in Villa Campostano, Albaro, Italy (and was buried in Albaro, Italy without the proper ceremony he deserved). Shortly before his death, Pope Gregory XVII expressed sincere grief for making (at times) gravely imprudent actions during his hidden (and suffering) pontificacy, when he said: *"I have made a mistake, I understand it today. ... I say this because I have great remorse."

However, the Hostage Pope stated: "I have faith in the forgiveness of the Lord and, therefore, I am calm."

*Note: These historical quotes come from the last recorded interview of Pope Gregory XVII given on September 18, 1988 A.D. - as recorded in the book: The Unelected Pope; Giuseppe Siri, Cardinal of the Holy Roman Church (1993), by Benny Lai, pp. 296-297. -ED

It seems very possible His Holiness had a sense of resolve before his death - as when he made these statements he was operating the Vatican underground and had taken concrete actions to carry on the true Petrine episcopal hierarchy- after his "rescue" by the providential priest-
the Rev. Fr. Peter Khoat Van Tran on (the historic date for the Church)
June 14, 1988 A.D. at the Istituto Ravasco convent in Rome.


"It is faith and hope... which must guide us here. In the first place by giving us the courage to tackle these problems, by assuring us in advance that there ARE solutions within the order willed by our Lord for His Church. Though He allows His Church to be tested, He does not allow us to doubt His promises nor the help which He always gives her, and which He is ready to give to these timorous Catholics who today do not dare to take action." -Fr. Noel Barbara, The Restoration Of The Episcopate And The Papacy

**Papal Restoration Campaign


"God will raise a holy Pope..."

Brother John of the Cleft Rock (14th Century): "Towards the end of the world, tyrants and hostile mobs will rob the Church and the clergy of all their possessions and will afflict and martyr them. Those who heap the most abuse upon them will be held in high esteem. At that time, the Pope with his cardinals will have to flee Rome in tragic circumstances to a place where they will be unknown. The Pope will die a cruel death in his exile. The sufferings of the Church will be much greater than at any previous time in her history. But God will raise a holy Pope, and the Angels will rejoice. Enlightened by God, this man will rebuild almost the whole world through his holiness. He will lead everyone to the true Faith. Everywhere, the fear of God, virtue, and good morals will prevail. He will lead all erring sheep back to the fold, and there shall be one faith, one law, one rule of life, and one baptism on earth. All men will love each other and do good, and all quarrels and wars will cease."
