"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.)

Khoat Van Tran's group in 1988 to help Pope Gregory XVII operate the underground Vatican, and most generously responded): Fr. Khoat and a select group of clerics were **working closely with the hidden Pope-Gregory XVII (who was constantly monitored and under duress, during his forced exile in Genoa, Italy). His Holiness "expired" on May 2nd, 1989, yet formulated and implemented a strategy to "save" the True Petrine Hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church.

**Papal Restoration Campaign

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."

    In Today's Catholic World (TCW)
    August 19, 2007 A.D.

    Having just returned from a several-day business trip (spending time in Portland, OR and Los Angeles, CA.) the Editor of TCW is most sad to note that Catholic modesty (regarding proper dress-code) is GONE. Whether hurrying through airports, getting a quick bite to eat, or checking into a hotel - not one maiden in either state conformed to Mary-Like fashions.

    More than five years ago I came across an article on proper Catholic dress by a Mr. Bill Wyler entitled, Attire. Here it is for the readers of TCW below:


    by Bill Wyler, a Catholic layman, 1997

    "Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will be done,
    on Earth as It is in Heaven"

    We as Catholics are to strive for...

    Mary-Like Modesty

    Our Motto is to...

    "Conceal not Reveal"

    "A woman shall not be clothed with mans apparel,
    neither shall a man use woman's apparel: for he is
    abominable before God that doeth these things."
    (Deuteronomy xxii, 5)

    This is the Most Perfect Model for Modesty


    Modesty of Women throughout History,
    when Society was Catholic

    (4th Century)

    (6th Century)

    (10th Century)

    (13th Century)

    (14th Century)

    (15th Century)

    (16th Century)

    (19th Century)


    As we can see above, the modesty of Catholic women of the first 13 centuries pretty much imitated Our Lady's dress completely, from head to toe. The code during this time was "fashion cater to modesty," not "modesty cater to fashion." We see a change in this trend in the 14th century with the introduction of the Renaissance. Now although the women then did not dress wantonly (see glossary below), their modesty was not the Perfect Model's. Some of them flaunted their hair, while others wore a bit of pompous clothing. Still, none of it outlined or uncovered the sensual areas of the body. Later during the heretical Reformation of the 16th Century, the women of Protestant nations began to expose more than decency allowed of the upper regions of the body. During the 19th century, contrary to the wide-spread notion that women were modest, women were practically intimidated by the fashion industry, going through extravagant measures into twisting and outlining their figure, to keep up with the latest trend. As a reaction to this being "bottled-up" and confined by clothing, women in the 20th century catered to the flapper craze. This new rebellious fashion freed them from the restrictive hour-glass shape of the "gay 90's" to the opposite extreme by the clothing being straight, and narrow, making them look boyish. This idea of "breaking free" from the slavery of 19th century pseudo-modesty made women reveal rather than conceal a little more each decade, to the point in which we end up with the scandalous fashions of the modern catholic woman today. Although Catholic women since the Reformation were not as modest as those from the first 1300 years of the Church, they still none the less kept the same standard of decency according to the natural law. 

    During the Renaissance, men became immodest and indecent as well. In the 14th century some men wore skin-tight pants, and in opposition the clergy of that time branded this clothing not only indecent but effeminate. For a man to fall into the "vice of women" (to entice sensually), by outlining his body with clothing is very effeminate. During the revolutionary 18th century the royal men displayed so much pomp and effeminacy in attire, that they could not properly act the fatherly role as head of state. This effeminacy was probably a factor in their weakness against their usurpation. After the revolutions men regained their modesty for the most part, but by then it was too late. The devil knew from history that behind every man is a woman. If he could get the woman to fall first, he could then use her to break the man next. For every Adam there was an Eve, for every David there is a Bathsheba, and for every Henry VIII there is an Anne Boleyn. 

    The standard of decency for women throughout the centuries, was always to cover the legs and not outline nor display them at all. This changed with the 20th century's "new tradition" of decency for Catholic women. Although this new decency was proposed by neither the Church (anyway, she cannot do such a thing as to redefine the natural law) nor by Catholic custom, many Catholics none the less decided that since the heretics were showing a new decency, they could do the same. If enough people do it, then it's right, was these Catholic's motto, as if the norm dictated right and wrong, and not the natural law anymore. Saint Augustine once said, "wrong is wrong whether everyone is doing it and right is right whether no one is doing it." We as Catholics should know we do not base our morality on the status quo, but on God and the natural law (neither of which change.) 

    The wealthy tend to cater to a new trend before the poor do; rich and famous women (including the activists) made the "new decency" fashionable in the first place. The middle and poor class Catholic women wanting to be fashionable (envy and avarice play a part here) ended up following suit. 

    Who did start the "Fad" of Catholic Women wearing Pants instead of Modest Skirts?  Was it a Traditional Catholic Woman who was striving to be a Saint?  Let's see what history tells us...

    "A pair of baggy trousers gathered at the ankles and worn with a short belted tunic was sported by Amelia Jenks Bloomer of Homer, New York, in 1851. She had copied the pants costume from a friend, Elizabeth Smith Miller. But it was Mrs. Bloomer, an early FEMINIST and staunch supporter of reformer Susan B. Anthony, who became so strongly associated with the MASCULINE-TYPE outfit that it acquired her name. Pants, then MEN'S wear, appealed to Amelia Bloomer...Amelia Bloomer REFUSED to wear the popular fashion. Starting in 1851, she began to appear in public in baggy pants and a short tunic. And as more women joined the campaign for the right to vote, Mrs. Bloomer turned the trousers into a UNIFORM OF REBELLION...CHALLENGING the long TRADITION of who in the family wore the PANTS."  —article on the origin of bloomers/women wearing pants, taken from "Panati's Extraordinary Origins of Everyday Things" by Charles Panati

    So what can we gather from all this? That a feminist miscreant desired to wear the other sex's clothes to express a demand for "women's rights" and to spark a rebellion against the traditional mores in decency. Feminists challenged the tradition of the man being the head of the family by wearing his clothes. Later on in the 1930's, the Communists would finalize this revolution in women's clothing. Using gnostic "theology", the communists deemed women nothing more than imperfect men, who in order to be as perfect as men, had to express masculinity and repress their feminine attributes. They made it the ideal fashion, in their propaganda, that women, in order to express true equality with men in all things, would also have to wear the masculine clothing for men only, called Pants. So we can see that this custom of women wearing pants is nothing more than a feminist tradition. It certainly does not come from the long held decency code passed down from Catholic woman to Catholic woman throughout the 19 centuries of the Church's influence on society. 

    There is a reason that the custom of women wearing pants DIDN'T start with Catholic women in a Catholic Society. It was deemed unnatural and indecent since the time of Christ until this decadent century. The custom would be deemed unnatural because Catholic women in history thought (and were right) that pants are for men, and dresses are for women. There was no question about it. It is indecent because women's bodies are more sensual, so women wore dresses to cover up more. According to physiology, women are centrifugal (fleeing away from the center) in their perspective, seeing things from within themselves, outwardly. Men on the other hand are centripetal (seeking from the center) in their perspective, seeing things from without themselves, inwardly. [...] This is the reason that women's bodies are more sensual than a man's. Their bodies are made to be appealing, so that they can attract a mate (who is designed to look in from afar). That is why there is more of an area on women that is semi-private than there is on men. Women are by nature designed to be more sensual due to the centripetal-centrifugal relationship. 

    That's just the way things are. We can't change what is sensual on a person and what isn't. If it was deemed indecent for women to expose or outline above the knee in the first 19 centuries of the Church, it is still indecent for women to expose or outline above the knee in the 20th. A man's sensual area is in the hip region, so the legs would not have to be completely covered up and pants would be suitable. The sensual area of a women's body, being from above the knee, to the elbow, and up to the neck, requires clothing that could effectively cover this large region. Its always been this way and you can't change what is sensual unless you dare change human nature, which as Catholics we know we can't change the natural law. That is the reason why dresses were for women and pants were for men in the first place. 

    Another reason that women never wore pants and only modest skirts is in respect to their femininity. According to physiology, the female form exhibits rounder and less extreme contours and more obtuse angles. A male body form is more sharp edged, angular, rugged and broken. This can be seen not only in the skeleton, and musculature, but also in each sex's face and movements. A man's face has sharp features, a woman's more soft and round in appearance. A man's motion is more thought out and jagged with "countless endings", while a woman's movements are "endlessly continuous". Clothing is supposed to reflect these masculine and feminine traits. A man is to wear masculine clothing, and a woman is to only wear feminine clothing. So that a man's garb should express his masculinity by tending to be straight and narrow, while a woman's attire should be round, soft, graceful and flowing. So it comes as no surprise that Catholic women throughout history only wore full length dresses, not only to be modest, but also because that clothing (being soft, wide, and flowing) is in accordance to their feminine nature. Men dressed accordingly to their nature as well. Pants being sharp and narrow, are harmonious with masculinity. Pants are anything but graceful. Unisex clothing is for unisex people. It would be abhorrent if a man were to wear the clothing of a woman, so why is it not abhorrent if women wear masculine clothing such as pants? The Church has defined what is indecent or not on women, when it said this, about covering up, at the very least, the sensual areas...

    "A dress cannot be called decent which is cut deeper than two fingers breadth below the base of the throat, which does not cover the arms at least to the elbow, and which scarcely reaches a bit below the knees. Dresses of transparent materials are also indecent."  
    -The Sacred Congregation of Religious, under Pius XI 

    "One cannot sufficiently deplore the blindness of so many women of every age and station. Made foolish by a desire to please, they do not see to what degree the indecency of their clothing shocks every honest man and offends God. Most of them would formerly have blushed for such apparel as for a grave fault against Christian modesty. Now it does not suffice to exhibit themselves on public thoroughfares; they do not fear to cross the threshold of churches, to assist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, and even to bear the seducing food of shameful passions to the Holy Altar, where one receives the Heavenly Author of Purity."
    - Pope Benedict XV

    "As long as certain audacious modes of dress remain the sad privilege of women of dubious reputation and almost a sign by which they may be known, no-one else would dare to wear that same dress upon herself: but the moment that it appears upon persons beyond all reproach, she will hesitate no longer to follow the current, a current which will drag her perhaps to the worst fall." -Pope Pius XII, May 22, 1941

    "O Christian mothers, if you knew what a future of anxieties and perils, of ill-guarded shame you prepare for your sons and daughters, imprudently getting them accustomed to live scantily dressed and making them lose the sense of modesty, you would be ashamed of yourselves and you would dread the harm you are making for yourselves, the harm which you are causing these children, whom Heaven has entrusted to you to be brought up as Christians." - Pope Pius XII

    "Certain fashions will be introduced which will offend Our Divine Lord very much. Those who serve God ought not to follow these fashions. Our Lord is always the same." -Our Lady of Fatima, warning the people of the 1920s of the fashions that were to come for Catholic women. It wasn't a warning of the fashions that were to come for protestants and pagans since they were already indulging in indecent fashions. It was a warning to the Children of God, who are going to imitate them.

    So Catholic women have to ask themselves who are they using as their Perfect Model for modesty, the Blessed Virgin Mary or the feminist infidel Amelia Bloomer? 

    The reason for covering the body in the first place is to "unshape" it. If people think wearing skin-tight clothing serves the purpose of covering, they are dead wrong. Skin-tight does nothing but uncover the shape of the body. [...] 

    The first step of the feminist influence in the Church was Catholic women wearing pants. It would follow next that there would soon be female lectors, nun's wearing pants, altar girls, female "Doctors" of the Church, and maybe Priestesses with a Popess! 

    Rebellion has to start somewhere, and if you don't nip it in the bud, it will continue to grow. 

    Before Adam fell, Eve sinned first, and it was through her that the father of mankind gave us original sin. Vatican II's evil, done by men, would never have happened so soon or at all, if the backbone (women) of the Church had not first fallen. Imitating Eve in falling first, Catholic women of the years preceding this Council already were becoming lax in their modesty. Without the strength of modest women, men would fall into lechery and begin to become blind to what the Faith is, and isn't. 

    I would like to conclude with a quote of a Catholic prophecy:


    (Background of St. Nilus)
    St. Nilus was one of the many disciples and fervent defenders of St. John Chrysostom. He was an officer at the Court of Constantinople, married, with two sons. While St. John Chrysostom was patriarch, before his exile (398-403), he directed Nilus in the study of Scripture and in works of piety. St. Nilus left his wife and one son and took the other, Theodulos, with him to Mt. Sinai to be a monk. The Bishop of Eleusa ordained both St. Nilus and his son to the priesthood. The mother and other son also embraced the religious life in Egypt. From his monastery at Sinai, St. Nilus was a well-known person throughout the Eastern Church; by his writings and correspondence he played an important part in the history of his time. He was known as a theologian, Biblical scholar and ascetic writer, so people of all kinds, from the emperor down wrote to consult him. His numerous works, including a multitude of letters, consist of denunciations of heresy, paganism, abuses of discipline and crimes, of rules and principles of asceticism, especially maxims about the religious life. He warns and threatens people in high places, abbots and bishops, governors and princes, even the emperor himself, without fear. He kept up a correspondence with Gaina, a leader of the Goths, endeavoring to convert him from Arianism. He denounced vigorously the persecution of St. John Chrysostom both to the Emperor Arcadius and to his courtiers. St. Nilus must be counted as one of the leading ascetic writers of the fifth century. His feast is kept on November 12th in the Byzantine Calendar; he is commemorated also in the Roman Martyrology on the same date. St. Nilus probably died around the year 430 as there is no evidence of his life after that.

    Now the prophecy:

    "After the year 1900, toward the middle of the 20th century, the people of that time will become unrecognizable. When the time for the Advent of the Antichrist approaches, people's minds will grow cloudy from carnal passions, and dishonor and lawlessness will grow stronger. Then the world will become unrecognizable. People's appearances will change, and it will be impossible to distinguish men from women due to their shamelessness in dress and style of hair. These people will be cruel and will be like wild animals because of the temptations of the Antichrist. There will be no respect for parents and elders, love will disappear, and Christian pastors, bishops, and priests will become vain men, completely failing to distinguish the right-hand way from the left. At that time the morals and traditions of Christians and of the Church will change. People will abandon modesty, and dissipation will reign. Falsehood and greed will attain great proportions, and woe to those who pile up treasures. Lust, adultery, homosexuality, secret deeds and murder will rule in society. At that future time, due to the power of such great crimes and licentiousness, people will be deprived of the grace of the Holy Spirit, which they received in Holy Baptism and equally of remorse. The Churches of God will be deprived of God-fearing and pious pastors, and woe to the Christians remaining in the world at that time; they will completely lose their faith because they will lack the opportunity of seeing the light of knowledge from anyone at all. Then they will separate themselves out of the world in holy refuges in search of lightening their spiritual sufferings, but everywhere they will meet obstacles and constraints. And all this will result from the fact that the Antichrist wants to be Lord over everything and become the ruler of the whole universe, and he will produce miracles and fantastic signs. He will also give depraved wisdom to an unhappy man so that he will discover a way by which one man can carry on a conversation with another from one end of the earth to the other. At that time men will also fly through the air like birds and descend to the bottom of the sea like fish. And when they have achieved all this, these unhappy people will spend their lives in comfort without knowing, poor souls, that it is deceit of the Antichrist. And, the impious one! — he will so complete science with vanity that it will go off the right path and lead people to lose faith in the existence of God in three hypostases. Then the All-good God will see the downfall of the human race and will shorten the days for the sake of those few who are being saved, because the enemy wants to lead even the chosen into temptation, if that is possible... then the sword of chastisement will suddenly appear and kill the perverter and his servants."

    In essence the prophecy has basically said that Catholics (those who are orthodox in the faith) would change the traditions and morals of the Church and specifically points out that one of these is *modesty*. It even remarkably states that with these new fashions you could not see the difference between the masculine and feminine clothing as to blur what sex the person was. Also that if you tried to correct these people that they would feel no shame in what they were doing, and classify it as the norm or at least trivial. If you tried to ask advice from the Catholic Pastor, although good with knowing dogma, they would fail to distinguish the "right-hand way from the left" in morality. These are wicked times and we need to, "Therefore, brethren, stand fast; and hold the traditions which you have learned, whether by word, or by our epistle," (2 Thess. ii, 14), if we are ever going to be saved, despite the reluctance our Pastors have to condemn these modern fashions right up from the beginning of this century. In their giving us the "greenlight" in these matters, "easing" our conscience, they are doing more harm than the apparent good. People forget that although the Saints might have differed on different points of dogmatic doctrine (prior to the Church explicitly ending the differences with a magisterial decree), they all agreed as to what was modest in attire. There was not a single Canonized Saint or Church Father who deviated from the decency code in over 1800 years. We as Catholics are not allowed to differ from their perspectives. We are to condemn and to condone what they condemned and condoned. It is when we deviate from THEIR NORM, that we can say we are no longer of their One, Holy, Catholic, Apostolic Faith. For in order to be Catholic we must be of the same religious body, and in order to be of the same body, we must profess the same religion of Christ in Faith *and* morals. We must use the traditions and habits of the Saints, that they all had in common, throughout the centuries of the Church. If we fail in achieving this common denominator, we can expect to fail in achieving our Supernatural End as well.



    The vice which incites others to look upon the individual be it in dress, word, or deed. 


    Unchaste immodesty in dress, word, or deed, i.e. dressing indecently when it comes to accenting or exposing the sensual areas of a man or woman.  

    Modest Covering

    In modesty that which hides or blurs the outline of the body for decency. Skin-tight, transparent, or flesh tone clothing do not conceal and are not to be deemed a modest covering. 


    That which conforms to standards or propriety, good taste, or morality. In modest dress, at the bare minimum that which covers the sensual areas of man and woman in public. As Catholic traditional decorum indicates, the natural law has it that the sensual areas of a man are around the hipbone, and that of a woman is from the knee, to the neck, to the elbows. The only times the sensual areas may be exposed, is in private for health or conjugal reasons. In certain places and times more modesty is required when it is necessary to do so, i.e. going to Church etc. 


    That which appeals to the senses, and usually incites them to venereal pleasure.

    "Whosoever therefore will be a friend of this world becometh an enemy of God." -St. James iv. 4

    "You carry your snare everywhere and spread your nets in all places. You allege that you never invited others to sin. You did not, indeed, by your words, but you have done so by your dress and your deportment. ... When you have made another sin in his heart, how can you be innocent? Tell me, whom does this world condemn? Whom do judges punish? Those who drink poison or those who prepare it and administer the fatal potion? You have prepared the abominable cup, you have given the death dealing drink, and you are more criminal than are those who poison the body; you murder not the body but the soul. And it is not to enemies you do this, nor are you urged on by any imaginary necessity, nor provoked by injury, but out of foolish vanity and pride." -St. John Chysostom (Instruction on Women's Dress)

    In Today's Catholic World is posting four chapters from the well-respected priest, Father Joaquin Saenz y Arriaga's book, entitled: The New Montinian Church. This book (published in 1971) exposes the dark plot against the Holy Catholic Church perpetrated by Judeo-Masonry: with an emphasis on detailing the evil actions of the enemy of the cross, Giovanni Battista Montini (A.K.A. Antipope Paul VI).

    Fr. Joaquin Saenz y Arriaga books were so good- that Antipope Paul VI "excommunicated" him -truly a must read for members of the True Church Militant today. Presented (below) is a brief *introduction about this holy priest and then a link to four selected chapters from this important book.

    ...Fr. Saenz ranks among the world's top Catholic traditionalists.

    *Father Joaquin Saenz y Arriaga of Mexico, Doctor of Philosophy, Theology and Canon Law, international author and lecturer, was ordained a Jesuit priest of the Roman Catholic Church, April 30, 1930: he celebrated his first Mass in the city of Guadalajara, Jalisco on May 2nd.

    An untiring defender of the orthodox Catholic Church, he traveled the world in his battle to preserve Catholic tradition and the St. Pius V Mass. One of 3 spiritual leaders at both Marches-On-Rome in the early 70's, Fr. Saenz ranks among the world's top Catholic traditionalists. Withdrawing from the Jesuit Order when it became corrupted, he settled in Mexico City, running a Catholic residence for students. To many of his countrymen, he symbolized their fight against spreading Communism in Mexico. He is the learned writer of more than 60 books, devoted to exposure of the moral and theological corruption that quietly infiltrated the post-conciliar Church resulting from Vatican II, including: "For Christ and Against Christ," "Apostolate," "The New Mass Is Not the One Catholic Mass" and "Vacant See".

    Fr. Saenz's 648 page book "THE NEW MONTINIAN CHURCH" was published August 15, 1971 in Mexico and became the cause of this militantly loyal, orthodox priest's excommunication in 1972. Eventually, the book was fully published in Spanish and Italian ... but not English (note: until c. 1985 -ED) . The *four chapters that follow are especially appropriate to happenings in the Church today.

    August 2, 2007 A.D.

    In Today's Catholic World is honored to present a collection of the illustrious Doctor of the Church, St. John Chrysostom's (347-407 A.D.) sacred Homilies Against The Jews.

    The Editor of TCW recommends all to print out these (eight) sermons, from this renowned Church Father, and distribute them: as the tyrannical Talmudics - who TCW repeatedly publicly scoffs and rebukes [duty of all sound Catholic Journals] - are bent on making all True Catholics criminals in the eyes of the various masonic nation-states [i.e. *arrested, etc., ...] for expounding timeless Catholic doctrine against them [the Body of Antichrist].

    Much of the content of these classic homilies deal with a grievous problem at that time of a very small minority of weak "Catholics" - who would (in grave violation of Church law) - occasionally participate in perfidious Jewish rituals, festivals etc. St. John Chrysostom condemns this terrible abuse and exhorts his listeners to bring back any strayed brethren - adding, to not hesitate, if necessary, to lay down their very lives to help reclaim these poor souls.

    This same type of heroic zeal (urged by St. John Chrysostom to rescue Catholics from the Jews in his day) should be exerted in rescuing ones own "Catholic" family and/or friends from the Jewish conceived, owned and operated Roncallian V-2 sect (which is illegally holed-up in Rome and currently headed by the manifest heretic/Jewish contriver Joseph Ratzinger).

    *Reports are coming in from Europe that individuals are now being jailed for specific "hate crimes" [exposing Jewish perfidy] on the Continent. -ED

    Homilies Against The Jews

    by Church Father, St. John Chrysostom

    "For the martyrs have a special hatred for the Jews since the Jews crucified him for whom they have a special love.
    The Jews said: 'His blood be on us and on our children' the martyrs poured out their own blood for him whom the
    Jews had slain. So the martyrs would be glad to hear this discourse."
    -St. John "The Golden Mouthed" Chrysostom

    St John Chrysostom
    St. John Chrysostom, Bishop C
    Doctor of the Church

    "The temple was already a den of thieves when the Jewish common- wealth and way of life still prevailed. Now you give it a name more worthy than it deserves if you call it a brothel, a stronghold of sin, a lodging-place for demons, a fortress of the devil, the destruction of the soul, the precipice and pit of all perdition, or whatever other name you give it."
  • Homily I: "Tell me this. If a man were to have slain your son, would you endure to look upon him, or accept his greeting? Would you not shun him as a wicked demon, as the devil himself?"

  • Homily II: "How do you Judaizers have the boldness, after dancing with demons, to come back to the assembly of the apostles?"

  • Homily III: "If you separate yourself from the flock, your enemy will surely catch you."

  • Homily IV: "...what goes on in the synagogue is godlessness."

  • Homily V: "[Christ] said to Peter: "Upon this rock I will build my Church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it." You Jews tell me how you can attack this prediction of his."

  • Homily VI: "You did slay Christ, you did lift violent hands against the Master, you did spill his precious blood. This is why you have no chance for atonement, excuse, or defense."

  • Homily VII: "...the temple will never rise again ...the sacrifices of the Jews and their priesthood have completely ended."

  • Homily VIII: "We must not grow weary... we must not became exhausted, we must not lose heart."

  • "Rome will lose the faith and become the seat of the Antichrist... The Church will be in eclipse..."
    (Words spoken by Our Lady of La Salette to Melanie Calvat in 1846 A.D., a fully approved Church Apparition)

    "One must neither *pray nor sing psalms with heretics, and whosoever shall communicate with those who are cut off
    from the communion of the Church, whether clergy or layman, let him be excommunicated."

    Benedict XVI recalls "emotional" visit to Cologne synagogue
    World Jewish Congress
    (Official Website)

    August 25, 2005

    Pope Benedict XVI has said that his historic visit to a synagogue had been an emotional highlight of his trip to Germany, and he praised the participants in World Youth Day for helping to bring "a springtime of hope" to the world. Reflecting on his four-day visit to his homeland during his general audience at the Vatican, Benedict noted in particular his visit with his "Jewish brothers" as well as his meeting with members of Germany's Muslim community.

    "And how can I not relive with emotion the visit to the Cologne synagogue, where the oldest German Jewish community is based?" he asked.

    His visit was the second by a Pope to a Jewish temple. The Pontiff also said that during his meeting with Muslim leaders, he expressed his concerns about terrorism. He said he hoped "that fanaticism and violence are eradicated and that together we can collaborate on always defending the dignity of the human person and protecting (his or her) fundamental rights."

    Our Lady of Fatima "Father, the Blessed Virgin is very sad because no one heeds her message; neither the good nor the bad. The good continue on with their life of virtue and apostolate, but they do not unite their lives to the message of Fatima. Sinners keep following the road of evil because they do not see the terrible chastisement about to befall them. Believe me, Father, God is going to punish the world and very soon. The chastisement of heaven is imminent. In less than two years, 1960 will be here and the chastisement of heaven will come and it will be very great. Tell souls to fear not only the material punishment that will befall us if we do not pray and do penance but most of all the souls who will go to hell." (Exact words of Sister Lucy (visionary at Fatima) in an interview with Father Augustin Fuentes on December 26, 1957 A.D., giving clear forewarning that the imminent chastisement of heaven for man's sins would unmistakably *occur before 1960 A.D. *(which it precisely did 10 months later, on October 26, 1958 A.D., with the usurpation of the Papal Chair from Christ's Lawful Vicar, Pope Gregory XVII)

    Universal Testimony of the Fathers of the Early Church on The Apostasy:

    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."

Millions of others listening via radio throughout Italy and Europe heard the Official Vatican Radio broadcaster shout exultantly: "A pope is elected!"; June 14, 1988 picture of His Holiness Pope Gregory XVII with Fr. Khoat and (on far right, one of the Hostage Pope's wicked captors, Mgsr. Grone) at the Istituto Ravasco convent in Rome. Pope Gregory XVII in a series of clandestine meetings in the late 1980s told Fr. Khoat, Monsignor Carlo Taramasso, an Italian Prelate (Bishop), and a distinguished layman that the white smoke was not an error (mix-up), but indeed signified His election and acceptance as Roman Pontiff and that he was *under a decades-long death threat.

    "He, Pope Gregory XVII, admitted in front of me that 'He was Pope Gregory XVII'. His (this) confirmation took place in Rome on June 14, 1988."
