(November is the Month the Church Dedicates to the Holy Souls in Purgatory)
"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, Venerable Pope Pius IX

IN TODAY' S CATHOLIC WORLD'S BULLET POINT BRIEFS
November 25, 2005 A.D.
(Minneapolis) -Nov 25- On November 14th, In Today's Catholic World launched the new feature called Bullet Point Briefs or (BPB's), which are periodic listings, important bullet point headlines/briefs for the Church in Eclipse. Today on the feast day of the Glorious Martyr, St. Catherine of Alexandria, TCW presents a second installment of BPB's.
Today's Bullet Point Briefs (BPB's):
1. "The HEXAGRAM" [Magen David 6-pointed star] was adopted by the Zionist Organization at the First Zionist Congress in 1897." (Cavendish, p. 1300) It has no connection to Judaism practiced before Christ.
2. Senator Joseph McCarthy Roman Catholic - American Hero: Senator Joeseph McCarthy 50 years after his death is still making news. See: the following link.

3. Update on Challenge to Owner of NovusOrdoWatch.com: The owner of NovusOrdoWatch.com was emailed three separate times (documented) by the editor of TCW, David Hobson, with the *challenge (re-printed from 11/14/05 below). As of today (11/25/05) there has been no reply. TCW encourages its readers to ask themselves, who is "The Wizard Behind the Curtain" of NovusOrdoWatch...
*(Callenge from 11/14/05): The Editor of In Today’s Catholic World challenges the owner of NovusOrdoWatch.com to put his name on his website. Although the site seems to be doing some good, it also seems at best, less than heroic to post important information and then hide bravely in the shadows. (TCW) will keep its readers posted on this website's? / person's reply to the challenge.
4. New picture added to the website StSimonofTrent.com plus additional text:You can view the new additions to the website dedicated to St. Simon of Trent (whose sacred cult, the Roncallian V2-Sect has desperately tried to suppress) by clicking here.
The Catholic Church Celebrates the Feast Day of the
Holy Infant Martyr, St. Simon of Trent, on March 24th
6. Thanksgiving Liberalism ???
A reader of TCW sent a letter to the editor asking:
Question: "Should Catholics celebrate this Protestant holiday? The way I see it No because this is a day that should be celebrated as everyday is for what God has given to us."
TCW's Answer: "No is right - today (as all days are) is a Catholic Day... in fact it is the Feast of St. John of the Cross. The Puritans were absolutely anti-Catholic... this myth about people fleeing Heretical [Anglican] England to freely practice 'their religion' is absurd... I have never heard of Catholics being aboard the Mayflower."
7. An Important "Re-Post" from an Earlier BPB... A Traditional Convent is Taking Aspirants: A true Catholic Convent is beginning near Los Angeles, California. Female candidates who may be discerning the religious life may contact the Editor of (TCW) who will put them in contact with the Mother Superior.

"Although small, it [Fr. O'Sullivan's book on Purgatory] is destined to do great good among Catholics, many of whom are incredibly ignorant of the great doctrine of Purgatory. As a consequence, they do little or nothing to avoid it themselves and little to help the Poor Souls who are suffering there so intensely.... (Excerpt from the Approval of His Eminnence The Cardinal Patriarch of Lisbon, March 4, 1936 for the book on Purgatory, Read Me or Rue It.)
PURGATORY - HELP THE HELPLESS TODAY - EVERY CATHOLIC'S DUTY
November 22, 2005 A.D.
(Minneapolis) - Nov 22 - The entire month of November is dedicated by the Church in a special way to the Poor Souls in Purgatory. The suffering souls who are detained in the terrible fires of Purgatory (fires that would make the hottest flames on earth seem soothing) depend on the prayers and sacrifices of The Church Militant, to release them form their agony, as they cannot help themselves. To help The Church Suffering, (TCW) is printing the Forward and then is providing a link to the full text of the important booklet entitled, Read Me or Rue It by Fr. Paul O'Sullivan. This invaluable work gives concise instruction on what Purgatory is, how to help those who are detained in its fires now, and how the one reading it, can avoid this painful prison entirely.
"READ ME OR RUE IT"
This title is somewhat startling. Yet, Dear Reader, if you peruse this little book, you will see for yourself how well deserved it is. The book tells us how to save ourselves and how to save others from untold suffering. Some books are good and may be read with profit. Others are better and should be read without fail.
There are, however, books of such sterling worth by reason of the counsels they suggest, the conviction they carry with them, the urge to action they give us that it would be sheer folly not to read them.
Read Me or Rue It belongs to this class. It is for your best interest, Dear Friend, to read it and reread it, to ponder well and deeply on its contents. You will never regret it; rather, great and poignant will be your regret if you fail to study its few but pregnant pages.
HELP, HELP, THEY SUFFER SO MUCH!
I. We can never understand too clearly that every alms, small or great, which we give to the poor we give to God.
He accepts it and rewards it as given to Himself. Therefore, all we do for the Holy Souls, God accepts as done to Himself. It is as if we had relieved or released Him from Purgatory. What a thought! How He will repay us!
II. As there is no hunger, no thirst, no poverty, no need, no pain, no suffering to compare with what the Souls in Purgatory endure, so there is no alms more deserving, none more pleasing to God, none more meritorious for us than the alms, the prayers, the Masses we give to the Holy Souls.
III. It is very possible that some of our own nearest and dearest ones are still suffering the excruciating pains of Purgatory and calling on us piteously for help and relief.
Is it not dreadful that we are so hardened as not to think more about them, that we are so cruel as to deliberately forget them!
For the dear Christ's sake, let us do all, but all, we can for them.
Every Catholic ought to join the Association of the Holy Souls.
"Have pity on me, have pity on me, at least you my friends, because the hand of the Lord hath touched me. " (Job 19:21).
This is the touching prayer that the Poor Souls in Purgatory address to their friends on Earth, begging, imploring their help, in accents of the deepest anguish. Alas, many are deaf to their prayers!
It is incomprehensible how some Catholics, even those who are otherwise devout, shamefully neglect the souls in Purgatory. It would almost seem that they do not believe in Purgatory. Certain it is that their ideas on the subject are very hazy.
Days and weeks and months pass without their having a Mass said for the Holy Souls! Seldom, too, do they hear Mass for them, seldom do they pray for them, seldom do they think of them! Whilst they are enjoying the fullness of health and happiness, busy with their work, engrossed with their amusements, the Poor Souls are suffering unutterable agonies on their beds of flame. What is the cause of this awful callousness? Ignorance: gross, inexplicable ignorance.
People do not realize what Purgatory is. They have no conception of its dreadful pains, and they have no idea of the long years that souls are detained in these awful fires. As a result, they take little or no care to avoid Purgatory themselves, and worse still, they cruelly neglect the Poor Souls who are already there and who depend entirely on them for help.
Dear Reader, peruse this little book with care and you will bless the day that it fell into your hands.

Pope Benedict XIV (Papal Reign 1740-1758 A.D.)
Author of the Famous Encyclical Vix Pervenit (On Usury and Other Dishonest Profit) Promulgated on November 1, 1745
"The sin rests on the fact that sometimes the creditor desires more than he has given. Therefore he contends some gain is owed him beyond that which he loaned, but any gain which exceeds the amount he gave is illicit and usurious. One cannot condone the sin of usury by arguing that the gain is not great or excessive, but rather moderate or small; neither can it be condoned by arguing that the borrower is rich..."

THE CATHOLIC CHURCH'S TEACHING ON THE SIN OF USURY - POPE BENEDICT XIV'S ENCYCLICAL:
ON USURY AND OTHER DISHONEST PROFIT
November 20, 2005 A.D.
(Minneapolis) -Nov 20- The Editor of In Today's Catholic World is also a commerce business owner (with employees). In business there are situations that arise daily that require knowing and then applying the Church's teachings that pertain to the marketplace.
Businesses need, typically, large sums of available capital to run effectively and/or to expand operations. So how does a business obtain the needed funds? The answer to this question, although widely unknown to most (today) usually touches on some part or aspect of the "forgotten" sin of usury.
For a clear and concise understanding of this [purposely?] forgotten sin of usury (which by and large is the Evil Engine that Fuels the American and "Global Economy"; provided below is Pope Benedict XIV's Encyclical Vix Pervenit, (On Usury and Other Dishonest Profit). TCW is posting this famous Encyclical, in order to help Catholics be successful with their most important business, the business of saving their souls, and also for Catholic Businessmen to receive God's blessing and not wrath by obeying His Church's immutable Laws, whose faithful compliance with has historically, quite often shown tangible results (success) in the marketplace.
(On Usury and Other Dishonest Profit)
Encyclical of Pope Benedict XIVPromulgated on November 1, 1745 A.D.
To the Venerable Brothers, Patriarchs, Archbishops, Bishops and Ordinary Clergy of Italy. Venerable Brothers, Greetings and Apostolic Benediction.
Hardly had the new controversy (namely, whether certain contracts should be held valid) come to our attention, when several opinions began spreading in Italy that hardly seemed to agree with sound doctrine; We decided that We must remedy this. If We did not do so immediately, such an evil might acquire new force by delay and silence. If we neglected our duty, it might even spread further, shaking those cities of Italy so far not affected.
Therefore We decided to consult with a number of the Cardinals of the Holy Roman Church, who are renowned for their knowledge and competence in theology and canon law. We also called upon many from the regular clergy who were outstanding in both the faculty of theology and that of canon law. We chose some monks, some mendicants, and finally some from the regular clergy. As presiding officer, We appointed one with degrees in both canon and civil law, who had lengthy court experience. We chose the past July 4 for the meeting at which We explained the nature of the whole business. We learned that all had known and considered it already.
2. We then ordered them to consider carefully all aspects of the matter, meanwhile searching for a solution; after this consideration, they were to write out their conclusions. We did not ask them to pass judgment on the contract which gave rise to the controversy since the many documents they would need were not available. Rather We asked that they establish a fixed teaching on usury, since the opinions recently spread abroad seemed to contradict the Church's doctrine. All complied with these orders. They gave their opinions publicly in two convocations, the first of which was held in our presence last July 18, the other last August 1; then they submitted their opinions in writing to the secretary of the convocation.
3. Indeed they proved to be of one mind in their opinions.
I. The nature of the sin called usury has its proper place and origin in a loan contract. This financial contract between consenting parties demands, by its very nature, that one return to another only as much as he has received. The sin rests on the fact that sometimes the creditor desires more than he has given. Therefore he contends some gain is owed him beyond that which he loaned, but any gain which exceeds the amount he gave is illicit and usurious.
II. One cannot condone the sin of usury by arguing that the gain is not great or excessive, but rather moderate or small; neither can it be condoned by arguing that the borrower is rich; nor even by arguing that the money borrowed is not left idle, but is spent usefully, either to increase one's fortune, to purchase new estates, or to engage in business transactions. The law governing loans consists necessarily in the equality of what is given and returned; once the equality has been established, whoever demands more than that violates the terms of the loan. Therefore if one receives interest, he must make restitution according to the commutative bond of justice; its function in human contracts is to assure equality for each one. This law is to be observed in a holy manner. If not observed exactly, reparation must be made.
III. By these remarks, however, We do not deny that at times together with the loan contract certain other titles-which are not at all intrinsic to the contract-may run parallel with it. From these other titles, entirely just and legitimate reasons arise to demand something over and above the amount due on the contract. Nor is it denied that it is very often possible for someone, by means of contracts differing entirely from loans, to spend and invest money legitimately either to provide oneself with an annual income or to engage in legitimate trade and business. From these types of contracts honest gain may be made.
IV. There are many different contracts of this kind. In these contracts, if equality is not maintained, whatever is received over and above what is fair is a real injustice. Even though it may not fall under the precise rubric of usury (since all reciprocity, both open and hidden, is absent), restitution is obligated. Thus if everything is done correctly and weighed in the scales of justice, these same legitimate contracts suffice to provide a standard and a principle for engaging in commerce and fruitful business for the common good. Christian minds should not think that gainful commerce can flourish by usuries or other similar injustices. On the contrary We learn from divine Revelation that justice raises up nations; sin, however, makes nations miserable.
V. But you must diligently consider this, that some will falsely and rashly persuade themselves-and such people can be found anywhere-that together with loan contracts there are other legitimate titles or, excepting loan contracts, they might convince themselves that other just contracts exist, for which it is permissible to receive a moderate amount of interest. Should any one think like this, he will oppose not only the judgment of the Catholic Church on usury, but also common human sense and natural reason. Everyone knows that man is obliged in many instances to help his fellows with a simple, plain loan. Christ Himself teaches this: "Do not refuse to lend to him who asks you." In many circumstances, no other true and just contract may be possible except for a loan. Whoever therefore wishes to follow his conscience must first diligently inquire if, along with the loan, another category exists by means of which the gain he seeks may be lawfully attained.
4. This is how the Cardinals and theologians and the men most conversant with the canons, whose advice We had asked for in this most serious business, explained their opinions. Also We devoted our private study to this matter before the congregations were convened, while they were in session, and again after they had been held; for We read the opinions of these outstanding men most diligently. Because of this, We approve and confirm whatever is contained in the opinions above, since the professors of Canon Law and Theology, scriptural evidence, the decrees of previous popes, and the authority of Church councils and the Fathers all seem to enjoin it. Besides, We certainly know the authors who hold the opposite opinions and also those who either support and defend those authors or at least who seem to give them consideration. We are also aware that the theologians of regions neighboring those in which the controversy had its origin undertook the defense of the truth with wisdom and seriousness.
5. Therefore We address these encyclical letters to all Italian Archbishops, Bishops, and priests to make all of you aware of these matters. Whenever Synods are held or sermons preached or instructions on sacred doctrine given, the above opinions must be adhered to strictly. Take great care that no one in your dioceses dares to write or preach the contrary; however if any one should refuse to obey, he should be subjected to the penalties imposed by the sacred canons on those who violate Apostolic mandates.
6. Concerning the specific contract which caused these new controversies, We decide nothing for the present; We also shall not decide now about the other contracts in which the theologians and canonists lack agreement. Rekindle your zeal for piety and your conscientiousness so that you may execute what We have given.
7. First of all, show your people with persuasive words that the sin and vice of usury is most emphatically condemned in the Sacred Scriptures; that it assumes various forms and appearances in order that the faithful, restored to liberty and grace by the blood of Christ, may again be driven headlong into ruin. Therefore, if they desire to invest their money, let them exercise diligent care lest they be snatched by cupidity, the source of all evil; to this end, let them be guided by those who excel in doctrine and the glory of virtue.
8. In the second place, some trust in their own strength and knowledge to such an extent that they do not hesitate to give answers to those questions which demand considerable knowledge of sacred theology and of the canons. But it is essential for these people, also, to avoid extremes, which are always evil. For instance, there are some who judge these matters with such severity that they hold any profit derived from money to be illegal and usurious; in contrast to them, there are some so indulgent and so remiss that they hold any gain whatsoever to be free of usury. Let them not adhere too much to their private opinions. Before they give their answer, let them consult a number of eminent writers; then let them accept those views which they understand to be confirmed by knowledge and authority. And if a dispute should arise, when some contract is discussed, let no insults be hurled at those who hold the contrary opinion; nor let it be asserted that it must be severely censured, particularly if it does not lack the support of reason and of men of reputation. Indeed clamorous outcries and accusations break the chain of Christian love and give offense and scandal to the people.
9. In the third place, those who desire to keep themselves free and untouched by the contamination of usury and to give their money to another in such a manner that they may receive only legitimate gain should be admonished to make a contract beforehand. In the contract they should explain the conditions and what gain they expect from their money. This will not only greatly help to avoid concern and anxiety, but will also confirm the contract in the realm of public business. This approach also closes the door on controversies-which have arisen more than once-since it clarifies whether the money, which has been loaned without apparent interest, may actually contain concealed usury.
10. In the fourth place We exhort you not to listen to those who say that today the issue of usury is present in name only, since gain is almost always obtained from money given to another. How false is this opinion and how far removed from the truth! We can easily understand this if we consider that the nature of one contract differs from the nature of another. By the same token, the things which result from these contracts will differ in accordance with the varying nature of the contracts. Truly an obvious difference exists between gain which arises from money legally, and therefore can be upheld in the courts of both civil and canon law, and gain which is illicitly obtained, and must therefore be returned according to the judgments of both courts. Thus, it is clearly invalid to suggest, on the grounds that some gain is usually received from money lent out, that the issue of usury is irrelevant in our times.
11. These are the chief things We wanted to say to you. We hope that you may command your faithful to observe what these letters prescribe; and that you may undertake effective remedies if disturbances should be stirred up among your people because of this new controversy over usury or if the simplicity and purity of doctrine should become corrupted in Italy. Finally, to you and to the flock committed to your care, We impart the Apostolic Benediction.
Given in Rome at St. Mary Major, November 1, 1745, the sixth year of Our Pontificate.

PHONY TRADITIONALIST PUBLICATIONS: GRUNER'S CFN & REMNANT KEEP THEIR READERS IN DARK
November 19, 2005 A.D.
(Minneapolis, MN) - Nov 19 - On September 12, 2005 A.D., eMediaWire independently picked up on the Historic "Cardinal Siri" news release from In Today's Catholic World, giving it immediate top ranking for reliability and news worthiness.
eMediaWire, who's clientele is primarily Professional Journalists, documented that the piece on "Cardinal Siri" was accessed by
more than 96,000 news viewers, which included 1825 verified Professional Media Outlets throughout the world.
(It is quite obvious that the Phony Opposition "Traditional Catholic" Publications (and websites): Catholic Family News, The Remnant, Traditio, Seattle Catholic, etc., etc ... purposely withheld this significant story on the documented death threats to "Cardinal Siri" who acknowledged he was the True Pope to a well known Traditional priest (Fr. Khoat, who is still living) from their readers. Why??? .... it is because of their Pride, and that these "objective" Journalists would be out of their (novus ordo) "JOB$"! -The Editor)
Note: key parts of the News Release from 09/12/05 (concerning "Cardinal Siri", who was elected the True Pope at the 1958 Conclave) that eMediaWire gave its highest rating, regarding reliability and newsworthiness, and which was accessed by more than 96,000 primarily news viewers (Journalists, etc.,) can be found immediately below:
In Today's Catholic World Sheds New Light On Vatican's
Irregularly Elected Pope In 1958 Conclave
In Today's Catholic World (TCW), the Catholic news service, has reported compelling testimony from a Vietnamese priest, Fr. Khoat, that Joseph Cardinal Siri was the rightfully elected Pope on October 26, 1958.
(PRWEB) September 12, 2005 -- In Today's Catholic World, the Catholic news service, has reported compelling testimony from a Vietnamese priest, Fr. Khoat, that Joseph Cardinal Siri was the rightfully elected Pope on October 26, 1958.
This controversy began when at the 1958 Conclave, during the early evening of October 26, 17 days after the death of Pope Pius XII, white smoke rose from the chimney of the Sistine Chapel for a full five minutes, indicating a Pope had been elected, had accepted, and had chosen a name. Khoat says that Siri had chosen the name Gregory XVII. At that time, Vatican radio had announced for a full 30 minutes, "Habemus Papam," i.e., "We have a Pope." As preparations to greet the newly elected Pope were underway, the smoke turned back to black. Vatican officials were said to be at a loss to explain what had happened to cause the sudden reversal.
Now, for the first time in 47 years, the controversy surrounding the 1958 Papal Conclave has surfaced in several large daily newspapers in Europe at the initiative of a Vatican spokesman.
The London Tablet has reported on September 3, 2005 that Cardinal Francesco Pompedda, the former prefect of the Apostolic Signatura, told the Italian daily La Stampa that the Society of St Pius X, whose bishops have been excommunicated, could only be reconciled to the Holy See if it recognized Vatican authority. . . . He added that the traditionalists should explicitly recognize "the validity of papal elections from the death of Pius XII up until today". Cardinal Pompedda observed that some traditionalists have questioned the validity of papal elections during that period (beginning with the 1958 conclave, which convened on October 25th, 15 days after the death of Pope Pius XII.)
In 1987, the controversy was temporarily revived in some small religious papers in Europe due to an article written by French journalist Louis Hubert Remy. After interviewing Cardinal Siri in Genoa with several others, Remy entitled his article: "The Pope: Could he be Cardinal Siri?"
In 2003, former FBI consultant Paul L. Williams published The Vatican Exposed and claimed that he had looked at FBI documents which indicated that US intelligence was aware that Siri had been elected first at the 1958 Conclave, and had taken the name Gregory XVII.
In 1990, the late author and Vatican insider Malachi Martin had written about Siri's election at the 1963 Conclave in his book Keys of this Blood. Martin claims that Siri was elected, but refused to accept.
In 1988, on the heels of the French article on Siri by Remy, an American researcher, Mr. Gary Giuffre, published a series of articles about Siri and the 1958 Conclave in a small religious newsletter.
Many traditionalist Catholics, including some lay supporters of the Society of St. Pius X, question the legitimacy of all the sweeping changes made since 1958, and some of those feel Siri was the rightful Pope. This small segment views John XXIII (1958), Paul VI (1963-1978), John Paul II (1978-2003), and now Benedict XVI as antipopes who were never validly elected.
In the September 2004 issue of Inside the Vatican, Fr. Charles-Roux, who said Mass on the set of Mel Gibson's movie The Passion of the Christ, and now an elderly priest, is quoted as saying that John XXIII was irregularly elected in 1958.

INFANT BAPTISM IN EMERGENCY
ALL MARRIED CATHOLICS ARE REQUIRED TO KNOW THIS IMPERATIVE CHURCH TEACHING
**(EXPLAINED EXACTLY AFTER BRIEF INTRODUCTION)
"I BAPTIZE THEE IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, AND OF THE SON, AND OF THE HOLY GHOST."
"In difficult childbirth the infant may be baptized conditionally in the womb, but ought to be baptized again conditionally after birth (canon 746)."
"An abortive foetus should be baptized absolutely if evidently alive, otherwise conditionally (canon 747)."
(Text: "A Dictionary Of Canon Law", Second, Revised Edition, 1919 Imprimatur)
INFANT BAPTISM IN EMERGENCY- ALL MARRIED CATHOLICS ARE REQUIRED TO KNOW DETAILS OF IMPERATIVE CHURCH TEACHING
November 17 2005 A.D.
(Minneapolis) -Nov 17- The following information was submitted to the Editor of In Today's Catholic World by a *mother who prefers to remain anonymous, concerning the mostly forgotten today (i.e. as it was discarded by the "Pro-Death" V2 apostate smiley "bishops") Catholic Teaching on Infant Baptism in Emergency. Mothers who have lost a baby before the expected normal delivery date and who were not familiar with the Church's teaching on Infant Baptism in Emergency, should not lose heart, but be consoled that:
"It is commonly taught that an infant who dies without Baptism will not be unhappy. Moreover we have every reason to believe that an infant who dies thus will at least share an eternity of complete natural [not supernatural] happiness [Limbo]. Such thoughts should be a genuine consolation to the mother of an infant who dies without Baptism if there is no fault or blameworthy neglect on her part." - Father A. Francis Coomes, S.J., [from the] Mothers' Manual p. 142, Imprimatur 1945.
*Thoughts from a True Catholic Mother: "When there is a time in someone's life, where they may have the unfortunate incident of a miscarriage or early delivery, there is an expedient need for baptism in both cases. The poor little one who you have prayed and longed for, waited to meet and nurture, love and play with... ceases to be. Your baby has gone. In these horrific and emotional times, you must also be aware and completely ready to baptize the baby. I, myself, have been left in the wake of these steady blows. Months later, I still spend my days thinking about and dreaming about who, or what my baby would have been. My one solace is in the fact that we were able to baptize her by emergency, in the precise manner the Catholic Church teaches (and that the Novus Order has pushed aside and does not offer to those tiny souls and mothers hearts in pain...).
The rite of baptism is the vital part... Many unborn/unrecognized children pass to the wayside... forgotten. Mine will always be remembered, and hopefully, we will meet her someday. There is a little known Emergency Baptismal Rite (Reprinted below -TCW) that Catholics must be aware of. This comes from a book titled, "Mothers' Manual", copyrighted in 1941, with the official approval : (Imprimi potest: Joseph P. Zuercher, S.J.; Nihil Obstat: William M. Drumm; Imprimatur: Joannes J. Glennon) 1945. One part of this book tells you how and when to baptize in emergency circumstances."
Note: The following imperative information under the heading, (CATHOLIC TEACHING ON INFANT BAPTISM IN EMERGENCY) [below] contains the exact procedure of administering baptism to infants in an emergency. This procedure is required to be thoroughly known by all married Catholics.
**CATHOLIC TEACHING ON INFANT BAPTISM
INFANT BAPTISM IN EMERGENCY
It is commonly taught that an infant who dies without Baptism will not be unhappy. Moreover we have every reason to believe that an infant who dies thus will at least share an eternity of complete natural happiness. Such thoughts should be a genuine consolation to the mother of an infant who dies without Baptism if there is no fault or blameworthy neglect on her part.
However since Baptism is the only certain assurance we have for the possession of heaven, the importance of exerting every effort to see that a child is properly and duly baptized cannot be too strongly stressed. Nothing should be left undone to secure it.
METHOD OF BAPTISM
As long as the proper intention is had, when there is danger of the child's dying without Baptism, ANYONE having the use of reason, whether Catholic or non-Catholic, can and should baptize.
Baptism is conferred by pouring water on the head of the one to be baptized and pronouncing at the same time the words:
"I BAPTIZE THEE IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, AND OF THE SON, AND OF THE HOLY GHOST."
In the case of premature delivery the fetus, no matter at what stage of pregnancy, should be baptized unconditionally if life is certain; it should be baptized conditionally if life is doubtful. Any motion on the part of the premature fetus may be taken as a sign of certain life. Lack of motion however (as shall be seen) is not a sure sign of death. The formula for conditional Baptism is:
"If You Can Be Baptized, I BAPTIZE THEE IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER, AND OF THE SON, AND OF THE HOLY GHOST."
If the fetus when it is delivered is enclosed in membranes, THESE MEMBRANES SHOULD ALWAYS BE BROKEN by holding them between the thumb and forefinger of each hand and tearing them open so that Baptism may be conferred directly on the premature child.
For the fetus delivered in the early stages of pregnancy, Baptism by immersion is a surer and better method.
The manner of administration by immersion is as follows: When the membrane has been broken, the fetus is completely immersed in water and withdrawn while the person who is baptizing pronounces the words of Baptism.
If immersion in such cases is not immediately possible, rather than permit a dangerous delay, the water may be poured directly over the whole fetus that has been exposed by the tearing of the membranes.
Mothers cannot be too well instructed in this matter of Baptism. In the case of a miscarriage or in any danger of death for an unbaptized child, they should either endeavor to have the Baptism performed by others or should perform it themselves. Those who attend a pregnant woman at the time of a miscarriage or a hemorrhage should be on the alert to detect a fetus in any discharge that takes place and to perform the necessary Baptism. An actually decaying condition of the fetus is the only certain sign of its death. In all other cases therefore at least conditional Baptism should be given, even though there is no evidence of life whatsoever.

St. Alphonsus Maria de Ligouri
"To do God's will -- this was the goal upon which the saints constantly fixed their gaze.
They were fully persuaded that in this consists the entire perfection of the soul."
(St. Alphonsus Maria de Ligouri, from his treatise entitled, Uniformity With God's Will)
A CATHOLIC'S GOAL ALWAYS - UNIFORMITY WITH GOD'S WILL
November 15 2005 A.D.
(Minneapolis) -Nov 15- Today on the Feast day of the illustrious Dominican St. Albert Magnus, Doctor of the Church, In Today's Catholic World is posting a treatise of yet another Holy Church Doctor, St. Alphonsus Maria de Ligouri.
One very often may find themselves during a day asking themselves: "What do I do next... how can I please Our Lady and Our Lord ... how do I acquire peace of soul?" The specific answer to these important question(s), is not as difficult or perplexing as it may seem. All one needs to do is to look to the holy St. Alphonsus Liguori who provides the solution when he teaches: We must always strive to be in uniformity with God's Will.
The lazy sophism often heard next, from idlers who spend most of their time [life?] in front of the idiot box is, "How do you know what God's Will is anyway??"... as if this "stupid quip" is supposed to "close the matter" for all time, as they quickly "grab the remote" and dive head first back into their self-induced dissipation and resultant despair. Our Blessed Lord would never ask something of us that is beyond our ability. And he does ask, in fact requires, us to strive to be in uniformity with His Will, which is possible if we faithfully petition Him for the necessary grace.
In Today's Catholic world is providing for its readers an excerpt from the famous treatise by St. Alphonsus called, Uniformity with God's Will.
Uniformity with God's Will
by St. Alphonsus Maria de Ligouri
(Extracted from Chp. 3, Happiness from perfect Uniformity)
St. Mary Magdalene de Pazzi
... fell into an ecstasy of love upon hearing the words, "will of God".
By uniting themselves to the divine will, the saints have enjoyed paradise by anticipation in this life. Accustoming themselves to receive all things from the hands of God, says St. Dorotheus, the men of old maintained continual serenity of soul. St. Mary Magdalene of Pazzi derived such consolation at hearing the words "will of God," that she usually fell into an ecstasy of love. The instances of jangling irritation that are bound to arise will not fail to make surface impact on the senses. This however will be experienced only in the inferior part of the soul; in the superior part will reign peace and tranquillity as long as our will remains united with God's. Our Lord assured his apostles: "Your joy no man shall take from you . . . Your joy shall be full." He who unites his will to God's experiences a full and lasting joy: full, because he has what he wants, as was explained above; lasting, because no one can take his joy from him, since no one can prevent what God wills from happening.
The devout Father John Tauler relates this personal experience: For years he had prayed God to send him someone who would teach him the real spiritual life. One day, at prayer, he heard a voice saying: "Go to such and such a church and you will have the answer to your prayers." He went and at the door of the church he found a beggar, barefooted and in rags. He greeted the mendicant saying:
"Good day, my friend."
"Thank you, sir, for your kind wishes, but I do not recall ever having had a 'bad' day."
"Then God has certainly given you a very happy life."
"That is very true, sir. I have never been unhappy. In saying this I am not making any rash statement either. This is the reason: When I have nothing to eat, I give thanks to God; when it rains or snows, I bless God's providence; when someone insults me, drives me away, or otherwise mistreats me, I give glory to God. I said I've never had an unhappy day, and it's the truth, because I am accustomed to will unreservedly what God wills. Whatever happens to me, sweet or bitter, I gladly receive from his hands as what is best for me. Hence my unvarying happiness."
"Where did you find God?"
"I found him where I left creatures."
"Who are you anyway?"
"I am a king."
"And where is your kingdom?"
"In my soul, where everything is in good order; where the passions obey reason, and reason obeys God."
"How have you come to such a state of perfection?"
"By silence. I practice silence towards men, while I cultivate the habit of speaking with God. Conversing with God is the way I found and maintain my peace of soul."
Union with God brought this poor beggar to the very heights of perfection. In his poverty he was richer than the mightiest monarch; in his sufferings, he was vastly happier than worldlings amid their worldly delights.

"After the three days of darkness, St. Peter and St. Paul, having come down from Heaven, will preach in the whole world and designate a new Pope. A great light will flash from their bodies and will settle upon the cardinal who is to become Pope. Christianity, then, will spread throughout the world. He is the Holy Pontiff, chosen by God to withstand the storm. At the end, he will have the gift of miracles, and his name shall be praised over the whole earth. Whole nations will come back to the Church and the face of the earth will be renewed. Russia, England, and China will come into the Church."(Prophecy of Blessed Anna Maria Taigi (1769-1837 A.D.) who was Beatified by Pope Bendedict XV in 1920.)
IN TODAY' S CATHOLIC WORLD LAUNCHES BULLET POINT BRIEFS
November 14, 2005 A.D.
(Minneapolis) -Nov 14- In Today's Catholic World is starting a new feature today called Bullet Point Briefs or (BPB's), which will be a periodic listing at times of important bullet point headlines/briefs for the Church in Eclipse.
Today's Bullet Point Briefs (BPB's):
1. A True Cardinal Found: There is very credible evidence that there is currently living a 100% valid True Catholic Cardinal appointed by "Cardinal Siri" Gregory XVII. (TCW) obtained this information on 11/13/05 from an authority on Gregory XVII's Pontificate and will keep its readers posted.
2. Traditional Convent is Taking Aspirants: A true Catholic Convent is beginning near Los Angeles, California. Female candidates who may be discerning the religious life may contact the Editor of (TCW) who will put them in contact with the Mother Superior.
The Highest Calling
3. People are Seeing the Truth: (TCW) is receiving many emails from people who are seeing the reality of the usurped papacy, and are leaving the Counterfeit Church of Darkness (i.e. the Roncallian V-2 sect) to enter the True Church. All credit goes to Our Lady of LaSalette!
4. Valid Holy Priest Offers His Services: A True Priest who was ordained in 1955 has contacted (TCW) and said he will travel/fly to administer the True Sacraments throughout the US and abroad. This priest is flying to Alabama today to give first confessions and first communions to a family with 14 children (four of who are crippled). The Editor is honored to know this priest and suggests to Catholics who do not have a valid Mass to go to in their area, to contact (TCW) to possibly arrange to have this trusted priest come to your town.
True Sacraments for the Church in Eclipse
5. Michael Matt Editor of The Remnant Affirms His Ecumenical Involvement: It was confirmed in a phone conversation with Michael Matt editor of The Remnant and with myself David Hobson, editor of this Catholic news service, In Today’s Catholic World, that he [Michael Matt] plays on a well organized Ecumenical softball league, that is officially and blasphemously called, "The *Church League". The "Church" League consists of Lutherans, Novus Ordo "Catholics", Protestant Pentecostalists, such as the like that call themselves "The Vineyard", Novus Ordo False Traditionalists (this is Michael Matt's team where he plays outfield) and also Jews with full braids from perfidious Synagogues!
Again, the official name of this league that Michael Matt Editor of The Remnant has been a fee paying member of for at least two years is officially called The "Church" League. I, David Hobson confronted Matt with the fact that it is an error and a total scandal to use the holy word, Church, to describe this league and he, (Matt) disagreed, as he still is a member of this ecumenical mob that refuses to play hardball.

*Note from Editor: If words like "Church" are of such little consequence then why does this full-time Journalist Matt, who claims to be Catholic, write?
Words absolutely do matter, and this is precisely where the battle ground has always been fought. There is not a more sacred word than the word Church, as The Church is Christ's One and Only Undefiled Spouse that He willingly and lovingly gave his last drop of blood, and last beat of His broken heart to save (its members) from eternal suffering and separation from Himself. No one can support these attackers of the Catholic Church
(i.e. False "Catholic" Journalist's like Michael Matt and their vile pulp) without sin.
6. Canadian Author and Friend of the False Traditionalist (deceased) Michael Davies, Believes Siri Fact: Mrs. Anne Cillis from Canada who is well known in the Novus Ordo Pseudo-Traditional Circles, believes full hearted in the fact that Cardinal Siri was elected in 1958 as the lawful pontiff and was pushed aside by the Church’s enemies from within. (TCW) hopes Mrs. Cillis will tell her fellow Canadien “Friends" like Nick Gruner and John Vennari the truth about the Siri Fact soon and not hide this under a bushel for political expediency.
7. Challenge to Owner of NovusOrdoWatch.org: The Editor of In Today’s Catholic World challenges the owner of NovusOrdoWatch.com to put his name on his website. Although the site seems to be doing some good, it also seems at best, less than heroic to post important information and then hide bravely in the shadows. (TCW) will keep its readers posted on this website's? / person's reply to the challenge.

"Cardinal" O'Connor (an intimate friend of anti-pope JP2) Pictured Smiling with Two Full Aproned Freemasons
Venerable Anne Catherine Emmerich (1774-1824 A.D.), a German Augustinian nun, stigmatist (bore the wounds of Christ), and miracle-worker, who subsisted entirely on water and Holy Communion for many years, received numerous visions of the future crisis in the Church and the infiltration of the Masons. In her visions, she describes men in aprons destroying the Church with a trowel, The Masons wear aprons and their symbol is the Mason's trowel. The following excerpts are from page 565 of, Life of Anne Catherine Emmerich, Vol. 1, by Rev. K.E. Schmö:ger.
Picture of Ven. Anne Catherine Emmerich
"I saw St. Peter's. A great crowd of men was trying to pull it down whilst others constantly built it up again. Lines connected these men one with another and with others throughout the whole world. I was amazed at their perfect understanding. "The demolishers, mostly apostates and members of different sects, broke off whole pieces and worked according to rules and instructions. They wore WHITE APRONS bound with blue riband. In them were pockets and they had TROWELS stuck in their belts. The costumes of the others were various. "There were among the demolishers distinguished men wearing uniforms and crosses. They did not work themselves but they marked out on the wall with a TROWEL where and how it should be torn down. To my horror, I saw among them Catholic Priests. Whenever the workmen did not know how to go on, they went to a certain one in their party. He had a large book which seemed to contain the whole plan of the building and the way to destroy it. They marked out exactly with a TROWEL the parts to be attacked, and they soon came down. They worked quietly and confidently, but slyly, furtively and warily. I saw the Pope praying, surrounded by false friends who often did the very opposite to what he had ordered..."
LETTER TO THE EDITOR FROM READER OF IN TODAY'S CATHOLIC WORLD SHEDS LIGHT ON MASON'S DARK PLANS AGAINST THE CHURCH
November 13, 2005 A.D.
(Minneapolis) -Nov 13- TCW is printing a letter to the editor from a daily reader who sheds light on the Dark Apostasy we are in the midst of, that was perpetrated by the Church's most sinister and dirtiest of enemies: The Masons, and seconded to this day by the both un-heroic "non-judgmental" (conservative) & "prudent" (novus ordo traditionalist) "Catholics": who are "obediently" waiting for the well-fortified Masonic V-2 Roncallian regime, (sacrilegiously holed up in Rome for more than 45 years now) to "Rule on the Matter", as many/all of them are today (Sunday) devoutly watching NFL football until they triumphantly fall asleep on the sofa.
Thank you very much for your generous reply to my inquiry about where to find the True Mass in my country. It is as I suspected, the Vatican II church has made a clean sweep. Your counsel as to course of action is of the theological virtues and I thank you for sharing this with me. I have been struggling with this and the website you recommended ThePopeinRed.com was of much assistance. May the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary continue to inspire you and your work!
If I may respond on the matter of the Siri election.
The ultimate obstruction (2 Thess 2.7) to the 'great work' of the Sionists and their instruments the Masons has always been the Chair of Peter, the Roman Pontiff and the Pontifical Mass together with all True Masses - the clean oblation offered from the rising to the setting of the sun. Our Lady of La Salette speaks of a suffering pope and his successor, neither of whom would live to see the triumph of the Church of God. Even though we know from the dogmas of Faith alone, and apart from any other evidence, that we are living through the time of the Great Apostasy (2 Thess), none of the anti popes can fit her description. From all the data we have, the Siri thesis fits. It integrates and explains all the factual data that we have. In fact, the Church has so much data around the Third Secret of Fatima and around the Vatican II Council and its aftermath that, to my mind, all the unknowns have started to coalesce into one empty space. And that shape of things that were and are and are coming looks a lot like this: (*See heading below, The Mason's Plan of Destruction Exposed -The Editor)
The Man Known to the world as Cardinal Siri who was actually Elected as Christ's Lawful Vicar on Earth,
on October 26, 1958 A.D., and chose the name [Pope] Gregory XVII. He *died in 1989.
[*Pope Gregory XVII was under a documented constant death threat from the Masons to keep silent about His Papacy until his "death" in 1989. There is credible evidence that this Holy Father was purposely given an extremely high dosage of the heart medicine digitalis which resulted in him dying a cruel death (i.e. he was murdered). Who knows what horrific psychological and/or physical tortures were endured by His Holiness, the Hidden Pope, during His silent and sorrow filled reign. -The Editor]
"I saw the Pope praying, surrounded by false friends who often did the very opposite to what he had ordered..."
(Prophetic Vision of Venerable Catherine Emmerich c. 1821, alluding to Masonic infiltrators "in" the Church she calls "false friends".)
*The Mason's Plan of Destruction Exposed
A masonic coup d'etat in the Oct. 26, 1958 Conclave probably ordered by the Supreme Council of the 33rd together with its grand worshipfuls in the Templar Order / B'nai B'rith without and executed within by the Desposyniac Cardinals of the Prieure of Sion (P2 or PS). Remember Oct. 13, 1307 - unlucky for some, the day the Church acted to expel the Knights Templar - they vowed to overturn the Chair of Peter and return the Church double for the death of their grand worshipful Jacques Molay. From the coup would follow the reign of the anti popes whose purpose would be fourfold.
This would be to instrumentalise the Vatican in order to:
(1.) extinguish the sacraments (2.) deconstruct the Chruch in Her four Marks (3.) subvert the Magisterium.
This would prepare the way for the one whom the Templar Order and the Novus Ordo Seculorum ultimately would recognise as 'the Michael' - blasephmously taking the name of the Archangel as we are informed by the current 'Michael' , H.R.H. Prince Michael Stewart, Duke of Albany and president of the European Council of Princes in his equally blasephmous tome: The Forgotten Monarchy of Scotland. In Sacred Scripture, this personage is styled the False Prophet - the one who is to lead the universal church of all faiths and nations.
Sister Lucia told Fr. Fuentes in a 1957 interview, that we are in the last times.
(4.) But the *fourth reason for the anti papacy is almost more than I can prepare myself to write. Remember the final interview of
Sr. Lucia of the Immaculate Heart of Mary with Fr. Fuentes Dec. 26, 1957. In that prophetic interview she said:
"Father, the devil is in the mood for engaging in a decisive battle against the Blessed Virgin. And the devil knows
what it is that most offends God and which in a short space of time will gain for him the greatest number of souls."
The Third Secret [of Fatima] begins: "In Portugal will the dogmas of the Faith always be preserved."
The Consecration of the Chalice for the Elect
De Fidei is liturgically set forth in the most sacred treasure possessed by Holy Church, the Latin Rite, as it was developed from the institution of Christ and the Apostles and cannonised in perpetuity at the Council of Trent. According to the Catechism of Trent, the basic words of the institution themselves are Christ's own. For the consecration of the The Wine, they are:
"HIC EST ENIM CALIX SANGUNIS MEI, NOVI ET AETERNI TESTAMENTI; MYSTERIUM FIDEI;
QUI PRO VOBIS ET PRO MULTIS EFFUNDETUR IN REMISSIONEM PECCATORUM."
The Catechism infallibly instructs us that the words: "'Of the New Testament' have been added that we might understand the blood of Christ the Lord to be given not under a figure, as was done in the Old Law, of which we read in the Epistle to the Hebrews that without the blood a testament is not dedicated; but to be given to men in truth and in reality, as becomes the New Testament. Hence, the Apostle says: "Christ therefore is the mediator of the New Testmant, that by means of his death they who are called may receive the promise of eternal inheritance ..." The additional words for you and for many, are taken, some from Matthew, some from Luke, but were joined together by the Catholic Church under the guidance of the Spirit of God. They serve to declare the fruit and advantage of His Passion. For if we look to its value, we must confess that the Redeemer shed His blood for the salvation of all; but if we look to the fruit which mankind have received from it, we shall easily find that it pertains not unto all, but to many of the human race. When therefore, Our Lord said: "For you", He meant either those who were present, or those chosen from among the Jewish people, such as were, with the exception of Judas, the disciples with whom He was speaking. When He added, "And for many" He wished to be understood to mean the remainder of the elect from among the Gentiles.
With reason, therefore, were the words 'for all' not used, as in this place the fruits of the Passion are alone spoken of, and to the elect only did His Passion bring the fruit of salvation. And this is the purport of the Apostle when he says: "Christ was offered once to exhaust the sins of many"; and also the words of Our Lord in John: "I pray not for the world, but for them whom Thou hast given me, because they are thine."
Thus, the dogma of the Faith of Holy Church affirms the words of the consecration of the wine in the ancient Rite. The Novus Ordo Rite removes the Mystery of Faith from the consecration of the wine. This now becomes the proclaimation of the faithful as in: "Let us proclaim the mystery of faith. Christ has died, Christ has risen, Christ will come again." Whereas, according to Trent, the sacrament of His blood is the Mystery of Faith. And the church of the Novus Ordo Rite specifically consecrates the chalice of the Sacrament of His Blood "for all" placing itself under the anathema of Trent. This consecration has become the basis of the emerging ecumenical church of all faiths and nations. Also anathema.
"...the devil knows what it is that most offends God and which in a short space of time will gain for him the greatest number of souls." So, the fourth reason, why the foes of Holy Church instituted an anti papacy was to bring the Catholic Church of the Latin Rite under the solemn and binding anathemas of Sts. Peter and Paul and their successors through ignorance and obedience.
Many who believe they profess the Catholic Faith today and many who have fallen away from the Novus Ordo find themselves under these anathemas reserved for the worship that blasphemes Christ - along with the protestants who had the Church reformed out from under them at the national level in the 16th century by members of the same esoteric orders bound by oath to the same 'great work' as those who succeeded at the 1958 Conclave. As Sr. Lucia remarked in her prophetic interview of 1958: "people will be saved or damned together."
Pray the Rosary and Offer Sacrifices for those Outside of the Catholic Church
Yours in the Peace of Christ,

Sermon and Deeds of the Antichrist
(Close-up of The Devil instructing the Antichrist)
Chapel of San Brizio, Duomo, Orvieto
"When the time for the Advent of the Antichrist approaches, peoples minds will grow cloudy from carnal passions, and dishonor and lawlessness will grow stronger. Peoples appearances will change, and it will be impossible to distinguish men from women due to their shamelessness in dress and style of hair. (Excerpt from the Famous Prophecy of St. Nilus for Our Times)
1600 YEAR OLD PROPHECY FROM DOCTOR OF THE CHURCH BEING FULFILLED TODAY
November 12, 2005 A.D.
(Minneapolis) -NOV 12- On just about any day of the year the Catholic Church will have at least a small group of Saints She puts before the faithful to venerate and emulate. November 12th, outside of it being the feast day of the Holy Pope and Martyr St. Martin I, is also the feast day of St. Nilus, Doctor of the Church, who lived in the 5th Century. St. Nilus gave a prophecy that has been passed down for centuries in the Church which gives a "time-table of events" concerning The Apostasy we are in the midst of and the coming of Antichrist. Today on St. Nilus feast day, (TCW) is printing his famous and grave prophecy for its readers in its entirety, but first provides a bit more background on who this illustrious Catholic Saint is:
St. Nilus, a Doctor of the Church, 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 (by mutual consent) 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.
[Statue of St. Nilus 5th Century A.D.]
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 warned and threatened people in high places, abbots and bishops, governors and princes, including 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 5th century. His feast is kept on November 12 in the Byzantine Calendar. He is commemorated also in the Roman Martyrology on the same date. St. Nilus probably died around the year 430 A.D.
The Prophecy of St. Nilus given in the 5th Century A.D. for Today
"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, peoples minds will grow cloudy from carnal passions, and dishonor and lawlessness will grow stronger. Then the world will become unrecognizable. Peoples 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…"
*Note: In regards to this prophesied "sword of chastisement" the editor of In Today's Catholic World highly suggests reviewing the following pertinent link: The Three Days of Darkness

Katz a.k.a "pope" John Paul II shown smiling with members of B'nai B'rith (Jewish Freemasons) March 22, 1984
"Papacy and Freemasonry, those are the two powers active throughout the world and each is seeking to dominate it.... Either Roman Catholicism will lift us up again to the level of Christian civilization or else Judeo-Masonry will drag us down the path of barbarism and decadent paganism... Popes have reiterated their appeal for defense and have clearly shown the place and the duty of Catholics -- all too frequently the place has been left deserted and the duty has been betrayed in a shameful manner. However, even if in our day we are witnessing the terrific confirmation of these truths, it is necessary to remember that they were proclaimed by several Popes."
(-Monseigneur Jouin, from his Speech - Papacy and Freemasonry December 8, 1930)
B’NAI B’RITH FREEMASONS CHOKED UP OVER LOSING ONE OF THEIR OWN
November 11, 2005 A.D.
(Minneapolis) -NOV 11- In Today's Catholic World is reprinting the actual "tribute" that the Satanic B’NAI B’RITH Freemasons gave on their official website 04/03/05 to their man [antipope] John Paul II shortly after he died (i.e outside of the True Faith from all human ways of judging). Also today's post features a decree from a True Pope, Saint Pius V, which shows the True Church's teaching regarding Jewish perfidy and additional important information on the soul killing Antipope John Paul II's documented Jewish "past".

B’NAI B’RITH MOURNS PONTIFF’S PASSING
Jews Worldwide Honor His Unique Legacy Of Enhancing Mutual Respect
WASHINGTON, D.C., April 3 — “During Pope John Paul II’s tenure, the mutual understanding between Jews and Christians attained a breadth and a depth unprecedented in their two millennia of co-existence,” declared Joel S. Kaplan, president of B’nai B’rith International, today. “His visionary leadership will be sorely missed.” He continued, “From over 50 nations, the members of B’nai B’rith extend their heartfelt condolences to the world’s Catholics for their great loss.”
Jewish papal observers agree that Pope John Paul II’s revolutionary commitment to improving Catholic-Jewish relations stemmed, in part, from his own personal persecution by the Nazis during his young adulthood. Plus, his post-war decades in Poland provided him with an eyewitness view of Communism’s inherent antisemitism. Thus, his intellectual, emotional, and even spiritual attitudes toward Judaism were altered forever.
Within a year of his election to the papacy, John Paul II visited Poland and pointedly stopped at Auschwitz, where he publicly knelt in prayer to commemorate the Jews murdered there. In 1986, he became the first pope to ever visit a Jewish house of worship when he dramatically entered Rome’s Great Synagogue and embraced its chief rabbi. There, and many times afterwards, he spoke of the “irrevocable covenant” between God and the Jews. Commentators interpreted this as his endorsement of the Jewish people’s “deed” to the Land of Israel described in the Bible. Over his 27 years as pope, BBI presidents had private audiences with him, in their role as the “voice of international Jewry.”
Pope John Paul II established formal diplomatic ties between the Vatican and Jerusalem in 1993, and actually visited the holy city in 2000. During his stay, he prayed at the “Kotel,” the remaining Western Wall of King Solomon’s Temple, and he even followed Jewish custom by inserting a written prayer into a crevice between the wall’s stones.
The True Church's Teaching on Jewish Perfidy by His Holiness, Pope St. Pius V
"The Jewish people fell from the heights because of their faithlessness and condemned their Redeemer to a shameful death. Their godlessness has assumed such forms that, for the salvation of our own people, it becomes necessary to prevent their disease. Besides usury, through which Jews everywhere have sucked dry the property of impoverished Christians, they are accomplices of thieves and robbers; and the most damaging aspect of the matter is that they allure the unsuspecting through magical incantations, superstition, and witchcraft to the Synagogue of Satan and boast of being able to predict the future. We have carefully investigated how this revolting sect abuses the name of Christ and how harmful they are to those whose life is threatened by their deceit. On account of these and other serious matters, and because of the gravity of their crimes which increase day to day more and more, We order that, within 90 days, all Jews in our entire earthly realm of justice -- in all towns, districts, and places -- must depart these regions." (Pope St. Pius V, from His Papal Bull, "The Jewish Race", Feb. 26, 1569)

Documented Evidence that Karol Wojtyla
[a.k.a antipope John Paul II] was Born and Died a Jew
Not John Paul the "Great", but John Paul the Jew
(CNN News Service Confirms Karol Wojtyla's Mother was Jewish)
Anti-Pope John Paul II in Jewish Synagogue
"Their [The Jews] synagogue is a house of prostitution, a lair of beasts, a place of shame and ridicule, the domicile of
the devil..." -Words of St. John Chrysostom, Holy Doctor of the Catholic Church
Karol Wojtyla's (a.k.a John Paul II) mother, who died in early years, was born as Kaczorowska. This name is not Polish but Polonised and is composed of the typical Jewish name "Katz" (Polonised as "Kacz") and the village she came from named "Orowsk". As the son of a Jewish mother, Karol Wojtyla is, according to Jewish law, a genuine Jew. "Katz", alias John Paul II, begged Jewry for forgiveness, although their organizations (World Jewish Congress and Zionism) "initiated World War II", with 55 million dead.
Beria headed Stalin's Commission for Internal Affairs (NKVD) and other Soviet intelligence and security organizations from 1938 until 1953 when his attempt to succeed Stalin failed and he was executed. In the book, *Beria Stalin's First Lieutenant, his [Beria's] activities are described in gory detail. For example Beria kept a special room adjacent to his office for the torturing of small children... Beria killed countless numbers of Catholics, some estimate in the 10's of millions, yet in school we never learn about him. And if we did learn about him, or other Jewish Communist mass murderers, the book would never mention that any of them were Jews.
Lavrenti P. Beria
The Holocaust Against Catholics
He [anti-pope JP2] asked a people for forgiveness who were responsible and from whose midst the mass murderers of genocidal communism emerged and who (like the infamous Lavrenti P. Beria) murdered as Soviet commissars more than 56 million people, the greatest mass murder in the history of man, which included seven million alone bludgeoned in the Ukraine where (Eastern Rite Catholics have historically been numerous.) Anti-Pope John Paul II did neither demand atonement nor humility from Jewry for these horrible crimes, committed in the past and continuing at present. Now the New Religion known as the Vatican II Sect, cannot wait to "officially canonize" thier man "Katz" as possibly the greatest example of holiness to walk on earth outside of Jesus Christ who was ignominiously tortured and butchered to death by the "poor" JEW$.
Dec. 1, 2003 A.D. At the usurped Vatican, the Rabbi Marvin Hier delivers a menorah, a Hebrew Candelabra, to anti-pope John Paul II, as a reward for his "lifelong friendship"; with the Jewish religion. A practical denial of two thousand years of Catholic teaching about the perfidy of the Jewish "religion". It is a historic fact that Antipope John Paul II continued brazenly in his public acts of anathematized Judaism until the day he died.

Q. 537. What does anti-pope mean, and who were the anti-popes?
A. Anti-pope means a pretended pope. The anti-popes were men who by the aid of faithless Christians or others unlawfully seized and claimed the papal power while the lawful pope was in prison or exile. Baltimore Catechism #3, Lesson 12, Q. 537
ENEMY #1 OF THE TRUE CHURCH - THE PRETEND TRADITIONALISTS WHO PROP UP THE PRETEND POPES
November 7, 2005 A.D.
(Minneapolis, MN) - Nov 7 - A True Catholic must always do their best to avoid all heretics and schismatics, thus logically they must sever with those who profess the anti-Catholic Roncallian V-2 belief; as obedient Catholics of old rejected, the Arians, Albigensians, Protestants, Jansanists etc. Members of the True Church, the Church in Eclipse, must keep in mind that the biggest enemy right now to the True Faithful, is not the rank and file novus ordo lunatics and their crazy antics and dress, but the false Traditionalist phony opposition novus ordo groups such as the SSPX, Una Voce, John Vennari's Catholic Family News, Michael Matt's Remnant etc., who "obey" the anti-popes (i.e. Roncalli to Ratzinger) and are currently especially lauding the wrongful authority of the most recent Modernist Minion of the Devil... "Cardinal" Ratzinger a.k.a antipope Benedict XVI.
I David Hobson, Editor of (TCW) had dinner with a Catholic Historian last week in Cincinnati who verified my reasoned thought that all the antipopes prior to the V2 Roncalli strain, offered the Traditional Latin "Mass". (Remember, these anti-popes are devils incarnate and the enemies of God, yet they still could [and did] celebrate the Latin Mass with no grace or fruit to them or their deceived subjects similarly as the Eastern schismatics do today.
"It is fitting, therefore, that you keep aloof from such persons, and neither in private nor in public speak to them. But flee from all abominable heresies and those who cause schism… Brethren, do not be deceived. If any man follows him who separates from the truth, he shall not inherit the kingdom of God; and if any man does not stay away from the preacher of falsehood, he shall be condemned to Hell… If anyone walks according to a foreign doctrine, he is not of Christ, nor a partaker of His passion. Have no fellowship with such a man, lest you perish along with him, even though he should be your father, your son, your brother, or a member of your family." -St. Ignatius of Antioch
The pseudo-Traditionalists like Grunner, Ferrara, the "Rabbi Loving" Michael Davies- boring crew followers i.e as the "Violent Phenomenologist" Michael Matt, Peter Miller's bland Seattle Catholic E-Newspaper... Fr. Moderator's not so Traditional Traditio website etc. etc.; are ”tooth and nail‘, trying to destroy the True Church.
As stated above these pseudo-Traditional Catholics who put the “Latin Mass” of antipope John XXIII before de fide [The Faith], these know-nothings, with their well financed large presses are the Catholic Church's Enemy #1. The pseudo- Traditionalists are without any doubt, the most useful idiots and greatest tool for ushering in the Freemasonic "One World Religion" envisioned centuries ago by the enemies of The Faith and christened at the Apostate Vatican II Council whose sole aim is to hasten the coming of its leader (Antichrist)!
No true Catholic can give money to i.e. support the SSPX, Catholic Family News (which is owned by the Destroyer of Good, Nicholas Gruner) Michael Matt's banal Remnant Newspaper and other cheap pulp satellites without committing a sin, (i.e. if one understands the issues and facts) as this would be aiding and abetting the True Church's Enemy #1!
Time is Short, Eternity is Forever
“I make an urgent appeal to the earth. I call on the true disciples of the living God who reigns in Heaven; I call on the true followers of Christ made man, the only true Saviour of men; I call on my children, the true faithful, those who have given themselves to me so that I may lead them to my divine Son, those whom I carry in my arms, so to speak, those who have lived on my spirit. Finally, I call on the Apostles of the Last Days, the faithful disciples of Jesus Christ who have lived in scorn for the world and for themselves, in poverty and in humility, in scorn and in silence, in prayer and in mortification, in chastity and in union with God, in suffering and unknown to the world. It is time they came out and filled the world with light. Go and reveal yourselves to be my cherished children. I am at your side and within you, provided that your faith is the light which shines upon you in these unhappy days. May your zeal make you famished for the glory and the honour of Jesus Christ. Fight, children of light, you, *the few who can see. For now is the time of all times, the end of all ends." (-Words spoken to Melanie Calvat by the Blessed Virgin Mary at LaSalette, France 1846 A.D.)
