In 1 John 1-6 It says “If we say that we have fellowship with him,(Jesus) and walk in darkness, we lie, and we are not practicing the TRUTH. 1 John. 1-6
UN-interpreted Truth Is as Useless as Buried Gold. I read this statement in my local newspaper which was written by Lytton Strachey, an English Biographer (1880-1932). It’s one of those statements you would expect from some pope or from Christ Himself. Our Lord did teach “seek and you shall find, knock and it shall be opened unto you.” On the other hand the church also teaches that there isn’t any new Divine Revelation and that the deposit of faith is contained in the Scriptures and oral tradition as defined by the Councils and the Popes when speaking ex cathedra.
You can go to Heaven without the Tridentine Mass, but you cannot go to heaven without the True Catholic Faith.
We are not really astonished at this “slippage ” in a Catholic sense. Acting and reacting like a Catholic requires the Faith. The virtue of faith is the principle of a truly Catholic life, and in most Catholics today, as we commonly observe them going about their business at home, at church, and in society this principle, if not dead, remains fruitless. In other words, the Catholic religion makes little impression in their lives and little difference that would set them apart from their non-Catholic contemporaries.
Recommended devotions beside the Sacraments for 2019, in these Immoral and Apocalyptic Times.
I. Prayers daily. Rosary preferred.
2. Read the readings and Gospel in your Missal for each day of the week. If you don’t have a daily missal then read a passage or two in the New Testament. Go through the whole book, over and over again tell the end of the year.
Dear Catholics: There is a Joseph in the old Testament, in the New Testament and in the Last Testament.
The Truth is a broken record. It’s the same tune over and over again. The Church teaches that there is no new Divine Revelation and that all Divine Revelation ended with the last book of the Apocalypse and is contained in the Traditions of the Church. Anything of faith is old not new.
Who I want to propose to you because of today’s feast, is the person who is all of these things in one and that would be our own dear St. Luke. St. Luke first of all was a physician, a doctor. Why he might be our favorite doctor and the one we would recommend before all others is because he has God’s ear on this. I think he is probably hooked up with St. Raphael and together they are the patrons of God’s healing. There is no better physician to have than that. In fact, there is a reason when all earthly physicians fail us we turn to St. Luke and we turn to St. Raphael to obtain God’s healing for us.
Luke 12: 1-10 Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees
Christ warns us against hypocrisy, the fear of the world and covetousness. He admonishes all to watch.
 And when great multitudes stood about him, so that they trod one upon another, he began to say to his disciples: Beware ye of the leaven of the Pharisees, which is hypocrisy.  For there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed: nor hidden, that shall not be known.  For whatsoever things you have spoken in darkness, shall be published in the light: and that which you have spoken in the ear in the chambers, shall be preached on the housetops.  And I say to you, my friends: Be not afraid of them who kill the body, and after that have no more that they can do. But I will shew you whom you shall fear: fear ye him, who after he hath killed, hath power to cast into hell. Yea, I say to you, fear him.
Taken from.”Deliverance Prayers,” by Father Chad Ripperger In recalling what the Church has always taught, Father Ripperger reminds us of the following “Sins Against Faith.” Willful doubt of any article of faith: deliberate ignorance of the truths of faith which ought to be known; neglect in instructing oneself in the faith according to one’s state in life; rash credulity (e.g. giving credence to private revelation to easily or believing in a private revelations which has been condemned by the lawful Church authorities.) apostasy; heresy; indifferent-ism (to believe that one religion is as good as another, and that all religions are equally true and pleasing to God, or that one is free to accept or reject any or all religions); reading or circulating books or writings against the Catholic belief or practice in such wise as to jeopardize one’s or another s faith; to remain silent when asked about one’s faith; engaging in schismatic or heretical worship; joining or supporting masonic groups who are out to undermine the faith or other forbidden societies.
At Mass they say the confiteor twice, once for the religious and then for the laity. This comes from the two witnesses
Enoch was married, Elias not so. Jesus and John the Baptist were the two witnesses in their day. Which brought about the end of the Jewish customs for Christianity. The Jews expected Elias to return during the Passover but they forgot about Enoch.
And they killed both of them.
Remember that NO ONE comes back from the other world except for the Testimonial Judgement on that last Pentecost Sunday, Saturday week in the WEST.
As Catholics we should be trying to exercise charity whenever we voice our opinions on issues, especially those that pertain to matters of faith.
Most traditionalists seem to be in agreement that we appear to be living in “The Great Apostasy” (Schism) spoken of by St. Paul in II Thess. II. However, most seem to be unaware that confusion among the faithful is one of the main signs of this apostasy. Simply put, no confusion, no apostasy. They go together.
People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) asked Maine officials on Wednesday for permission to build a large grave to mark the site of a truck crash that resulted in thousands of lobsters spilling out onto a highway. VIDEO
When John the Baptist appeared at the Jordan river, proclaiming that the kingdom of God was at hand (cf. Mt. 3:1-12; Mk. 1:2-8; Lk. 3:2-18) the Jews flocked to hear him. The expectation of the Promised Redeemer, the Messias, was strong at this time, and here was a Prophet announcing his proximate arrival and calling on the people to repent of their sins in order to be prepared to receive him.

If someone told you that Catholicism was a religion of world domination, you might be taken aback, even shocked. But if you were an instructed social Catholic you would, on reflection, see that there is an essential truth in this crudely put statement. You might respond by agreeing, but adding the rider that the Catholic religion seeks to dominate the world not by arms, but by alms; alms not so much for the materially poor as for the spiritually poor.

Heaven having been closed now for about 4000 years is once again opened on Ascension Thursday. “He ascended into heaven, sitteth at the right hand of God , the Father Almighty; FROM THENCE He shall come to judge the living and the dead.”
The Limbo of the Fathers also called Paradise and the Opening of Heaven
a place and state of rest wherein the souls of the just who died before CHRIST’S ASCENSION were detained until he opened HEAVEN to them; referred also as “Abraham’s bosom.
