For all of us who remember that all the Apostles ran away and St. Peter later denied he knew the Lord, most have forgotten how he was willing to die and fight for the Lord at the time they came to arrest him. MORE
Jesus Christ is fully the spiritual King of all mankind, for He is the giver of life, the maker of law, the supreme judge and ruling authority, in the minds and wills and hearts of human beings.
He is King of mankind by natural right, because He is the divine maker and sustainer of the universe and He took human nature unto His divine Person, He is King by acquired right, because he redeemed mankind by the sacrifice of His body and blood.
Dear friends of the faith: In as much as there are different opinions among traditionalists on the status of the church today. It is safe to say that after 50 years no agreements are going to be reached among the Fathers before the Second Coming of Christ. To Illustrate we have the three different Missals that are used among the faithful. The SSPX use’s the 62 Missal. CMRI uses the 53 Missal and the SSPV uses the 43 Missal. So after 50 years, not even a true Pope could solve this problem.
Both suits involve an unusual alliance between priests of the Society of Saint Pius X—the only Catholic priests willing so far to challenge the lockdowns in court—and Orthodox Jews, who likewise are the only willing Jewish plaintiffs in suits against this tyranny. MORE
Sermon by Fr. Gregory Foley What are the signs, the events in human history that the Bible foretells must precede the end of the world and the second coming of Jesus Christ? 1. Jews return to Palestine The first of these signs is the return of the Jews to Palestine.
Although always regarded as a father, Joseph was little known on his own account until the later Middle Ages, following the adoption of his feast by the Franciscans in 1399, and later by the Dominicans. Due in part to the “goddess like granduer” accorded to his wife, Mary, Joseph was reduced to “an abject, even ludicrous old man who figured as “God’s cuckold” in [medieval] legends and plays.” The feast was only added to the Roman Breviary in 1479, and was not compulsory for the whole Catholic church until 1621. An effort by some church leaders, including Jean Gerson, at the Council of Constance in 1416 to have Joseph elevated to a rank next to Mary and above the Apostles, with a universal feast of The Marriage of Mary and Joseph, was a step too far, and not successful.

Many of us don’t always pay attention to the meanings of some of these Gospel’s we hear every Sunday at Mass. I bring this up because in the new Church they use new Bibles and as I have explained before, that in order to bring all the religions together they had to make Jesus just another good prophet. So, wherever it deals in his divinity they made changes.
Pope Leo X, (who was no angel ) concluded the Fifth Lateran Council, (1512-1517), on how to preach, tells us, “They are in no way to presume to preach or declare a fixed time for future evils, the coming of antichrist or the precise day, (date setting), of judgment…”
Pope Benedict XV in 1915 forbade all speculation and discussion of the purported contents of the messages of Our Lady of La Salette that deal with future coming of Antichrist.
Matt: 24- For there shall be then great tribulation, such as hath not been from the beginning of the world until now, neither shall be.  And unless those days had been shortened, no flesh should be saved: but for the sake of the elect those days shall be shortened.  Then if any man shall say to you: Lo here is Christ, or there, do not believe him.  For there shall arisefalse Christs and false prophets, (Many) and shall shew great signs and wonders, insomuch as to deceive (if possible) even the elect.  Behold I have told it to you, beforehand. If therefore they shall say to you: Behold he is in the desert, go ye not out: Behold he is in the closets, believe it not.  For as lightning cometh out of the east, and appeareth even into the west: so shall the coming of the Son of man be.  Wheresoever the body shall be, there shall the eagles also be gathered together.  And immediately after the tribulation of those days,the sun shall be darkened and the moon shall not giveher light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of heaven shall be moved:  And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man (A cross) in heaven: and then shall all tribes of the earth mourn: and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with much power and majesty.
A Prophet is one who speaks in the place of God. Saint John the Baptist, Last of the Prophets. And there were many lepers in Israel in the time of Eliseus the Prophet; and not one of them was cleansed, but only Naaman the Syrian. St. Lk. 4:23-30
Our Lord was demonstrating why those who lack faith seldom see signs and miracles, as He continues, an evil and adulterous generation seeketh a sign: and a sign shall not be given it, but the sign of Jonas the Prophet. St. Matt. 12:39. A prelude to our times as this generation, too, demands signs from God’s witnesses preceding the Second Coming of Christ.
