The Rev. Richard G. Cannuli, OSA, has passed away on the 2019 feast of the Transfiguration of the Lord.
A bi-ritual Catholic priest and visual arts professor at Villanova University, who studied under the Russian master iconographer Vladislav Andrejev, Cannuli had in 2011-2012 been given the grace by the Heavenly Father to write His icon of The Divine Heart Encompassing All Hearts. He was a part of the Apostolate of the Divine Heart almost from its beginning.
In love with God the Father and Jesus Christ, through the Holy Spirit, God at last granted Fr. Cannuli, aged 72 years, the greatest, deepest and incessant desire of his heart: to see Him as He is [cf. 1 Jn 3:2] and this precisely on the feast day of the Savior’s Transfiguration.
Let us be loud and clear:
Jesus answered: He it is to whom I shall reach bread dipped. And when he had dipped the bread, he gave it to Judas Iscariot, the son of Simon. And after the morsel, Satan entered into him (Jn 13:26-27).
[Christ]: Holy Father, keep them in Your name, whom You have given Me, that they may be one as We are one. While I was with them, I kept them in Your name. Those You gave me, I have kept and none of them is lost, but him who was destined to be lost, that Scripture may be fulfilled (Jn 17:11-12).
Judas Iscariot, the spiritual son of his ‘father,’ Satan – the betrayer of Christ, just as Satan was the original betrayer of the Almighty Father – is in Hell for eternity. Not because the Father and the Son did not continually present him with Their mercy, but because Judas wilfully rejected this until his last dying breath. Even though Our Lady also tried to save him with her prayers.
Judas betrayed Christ, but what led to his eternal damnation was pride, the same original sin of Satan. Judas thought he ‘knew it all.’ He was too proud to humble himself and accept the mercy of Him who did not come to be an earthly king, or to accept the help of the Woman.
Anyone who claims, or attempts to claim, otherwise either has insufficient knowledge of the Faith or is a wolf of the revisionist kind.
Judas Iscariot is in Hell. Together with Martin Luther and Adolf Hitler.
Here is the answer to this question provided by Saint Augustine:
Delight in Him from whom you have received everything that delights you. In that I do not include sin, for sin is the one thing that you do not receive from Him. With that one exception, everything you have comes from Him.
To the Pachamama-believers / wannabes / revisionists:
Everything you have comes from God. Not from ‘Mother Earth.’ You are deeply insulting the Father and Creator of all – the Heavenly Father – by claiming that Pachamama gives you providence.
Pachamama is not just “Mother Earth.” The literal translation of Pachamama is “World Mother.”
Who is your real Mother – Mother Earth or Our Lady?
Who did Christ give to John (Jn 19:27) as our Mother?
Answer these questions for yourself and you will know in your heart of hearts what you truly believe.
They have no knowledge those who carry about their wooden idols, and keep on praying to a god that cannot save. There is no other god besides Me, a righteous God and a Savior; there is no one besides Me (Is 45: 20-21).
Pachamama is neither “neutral” nor “inculturation.” It is the sacrificial goddess of Machu Picchu, the new female version of the ever-ancient Ba’al.
If you venerate or worship Pachamama, especially with the ‘prayer’ shown to the left, you are committing idolatry and violating the First Commandment.
Pachamama is a material object that cannot fulfill any requests made to it. Only the One, True God can answer your prayers; the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Nothing else can, no matter how much you try.
There is one Mother: the Virgin Mary, Mother of God. The Queen of heaven and earth by God’s explicit will. She is second only to the Holy Trinity.
The earth is not “a mother” and can never be a mother, no matter how much it sustains us. It does not and cannot “have a feminine face,” because the earth is a material object, not a person.
That is reality.
There is one Creator: God the Father. Him, we worship and adore, with every fiber of our being, through His Son, Jesus Christ, in the Holy Spirit. No one else do we give absolute worship; only the Most Holy Trinity.
We give relative worship to the icons of God and His saints. No one else do we give this kind of worship.
The earth, created and given to us by God to live on and sustain us, is not God. It is not even a god. It deserves care. Being a material object, not a Divine Person, it has no entitlement to relative worship or absolute worship.
To loudly and proudly proclaim that, in 25 years, you have never baptized an indigenous person who is formally unbaptized, and would not do so if asked, is to loudly and proudly proclaim that (1) you believe such souls belong to you (they do not) and (2) you believe none of them deserve to have restored within them the likeness of God (who are you to judge?).
True cultural and colonial oppression.
The following words of Christ, the Lord, apply:
You shut the door of the kingdom of heaven in people’s faces. You yourselves do not enter, nor will you let those enter who are trying to (Mt 23:13).
Saint Michael the Archangel: Leo XIII and Consecration Prayers to the Great Defender contains within it Pope Leo XIII’s prayer to the Archangel Michael as originally released in the Raccolta (1930) by Benzinger Bros., with the approved (1902) supplement. Included in the book is also the English translation of the long-form consecration prayer to Saint Michael as said at the Celestial Basilica of Monte Gargano, Italy.
“You shall not have strange gods before Me.
“You shall not make for yourself a graven thing, nor the likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or in the earth beneath, nor of those things that are in the waters under the earth. You shall not adore them, nor serve them: I am the Lord your God, mighty, jealous, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me: And showing mercy unto thousands to them that love Me and keep My commandments” (Ex. 20:1-2).
The question was asked, “Is Hell just for demons?” The brief answer is a definitive “no.” Hell is not just for the Devil and his demons, but also for people who die in unrepentant mortal sin. Hell is not a metaphor as so many like to make it out to be in our present times, neither is ‘hell on earth’ the real Hell.
