How much the Son, Jesus Christ, loves the Heavenly Father! Christ does not just love us with the whole of Himself to the extent of having died on the Cross for us. He loves the Father – His Father and our Father – with the entirety of His being. It is a love inconceivable and utterly crazy to some, but awe-inspiring to see. Infinite Love loves Infinite Love infinitely.
Special indulgences granted by the Apostolic Penitentiary for the pandemic situation
By decree dated 3/19/2020 and issued by the Holy See, the Apostolic Penitentiary of the Catholic Church has granted the following special indulgences for the present global pandemic situation:
- Plenary indulgence to those with COVID-19 under quarantine, if with detachment from sin they unite themselves virtually in the Holy Mass, the recitation of the Rosary, the Via Crucis, or other forms of devotion; or if, at least, they recite the Creed, the Pater Noster, and a pious invocation to the Blessed Virgin Mary, offering this trial in a spirit of faith in God and in charity towards their brethren, with the intention of fulfilling the usual conditions (sacramental confession, communion, and prayers for the Holy Father) as soon as it is possible;
- Plenary indulgence as per #1 for all healthcare workers, relatives, and others presently taking care of those affected by COVID-19 and at risk of contagion;
- Plenary indulgence, under the same conditions as #1, for all the faithful who, given the present pandemic situation, offer their visit to the Blessed Sacrament or Eucharistic Adoration, or the reading of Scripture for half an hour, or recite the Rosary, or recite the Chaplet of Divine Mercy, to implore Almighty God to end this pandemic, relieve the suffering of those with COVID-19, and the eternal salvation of those who have died;
- Plenary indulgence at the point of death for all the faithful, who are unable to receive the Anointing of the Sick and Last Rites, as long as they are suitably disposed and have been in the habit of reciting some kind of prayer during their life. The usual three conditions are supplied by the Church. It is recommended to use a Cross or Crucifix while asking [God] for this indulgence (Enchiridion indulgentiarium, #12).
This present decree is valid despite any possible contrary dispositions.
Idolatry violates the First Commandment
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.
America, Do Not Kill
America, you have forgotten the most basic rule of order that underpins all humanity: Do Not Kill. The 5th Commandment of God. You are now reaping the wages of what you have sown without mercy in the heart and soul of your nation for over 250 years.
Stop killing with your words and actions, and the slaughter of your people will cease. Keep sowing hatred and division in your hearts and minds out of lust for power, for purported omnipotence, purported supremacy, and the slaughter of your own, by your very own, will increase not decrease.
RETURN TO SANITY, STOP KILLING!
ASK FOR FORGIVENESS AND THE GRACE OF ILLUMINATION
STOP THE SLAUGHTER!
You are the Judases of the Catholic Church
For all those calling for the resignation of Pope Francis, the valid and licit Vicar of Christ on earth, only the following suffices:
You are the Judases of the Catholic Church and of God Himself, despite all your claims to the contrary.
Ubi Petrus, ibi Ecclesia, ibi Deus.
You have a choice in front of God with regard to how you want to be judged when your time comes. Do you want to be judged with Infinite Mercy? Or do you want to be judged with Infinite Justice?
The choice is yours.
God shames the proud, the entitled and the strong
God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise. God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. God chose me for there is no other more sinful and more unworthy. God is showing the path to simplicity and truth, and that He does this through such lowly dirt as me – Saint Francis of Assisi.
The Second Coming and false prophets in the Catholic Church
Some, even in the Catholic Church itself, are claiming openly that we are at the time of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. This claim is demonstrably false.
First, no one knows the exact time of the end – the day and the hour – not even the Son; only the Almighty Father knows (Mt 24:36, Mk 13:32). Anyone who claims otherwise has either been deceived, is an outright liar, or is a drunk – or thinks he knows more than God and can revise Scripture.
Second, before the very time of the end, the era of peace – the era of the reign of Spirit, the era of the fourth stage of deification, the Kingdom of the Divine Will on earth – as described in Revelation 20 has to occur. It has not yet come. Only after that time period will the final battle take place, followed by the Second Coming of Christ in glory.
Third, the global illumination of all consciences as described in Joel 3:12 has not yet taken place. That illumination takes place before the Second Coming.
Fourth, as a consequence of the global illumination of consciences, all the various Christian denominations will unite under the aegis of the Catholic Church. All the schisms will be healed. Judaism and Christianity will also become united (CCC §674). This shall take place so that the light of the Gospel can reach all nations. It will take place before the final battle and the Second Coming. As we can see, none of that has yet occurred. Neither has the Great Persecution.
So, all of the above beg the question, “Where are we in salvation history?”
Ours, right now, is the time of the Third Passover – that time of the intermediate coming of Christ. What we are going through are the labor pains to usher in the era of peace, the era of the reign of the Father in the heart of the souls, the nous, of humanity. Here is a part from Saint Bernard of Clairvaux’s writings to clarify things for you about our present time:
At an hour you do not expect, the Son of Man will come . . . Do not just think about his first coming when he came “to seek and to save the lost;” think, too, of that other coming when he will come to take us with him . . . But there is a third coming between the two to which I have referred and those who know of it can rest in it for their greater happiness. The other two are visible but this one is not. In the first, “the Lord has appeared on earth and has spoken to us;” . . . in the last, “all mankind shall see the salvation of God.” But the one that comes between them is secret; it is that in which the elect alone see the Savior within themselves and their souls find salvation. In his first coming, Christ came in our flesh and in our weakness; in his coming in the midst of time, he comes in Spirit and power; in his final coming, he will come in his glory and majesty (Saint Bernard, Sermons 4 et 5 for Advent).
This is the time of the coming of the Kingdom on earth as it is in Heaven; the time we have all been praying for since Christ taught us the Our Father prayer. That is the time we are living in. Those who are expecting a manifest reign of Christ on earth are making the same error Judas Iscariot did when, at the time of the First Coming, he expected Christ to physically establish His kingdom on earth and overthrow Roman rule.
