The Precious Priest

The Precious Priest

Feast of the Holy Rosary

The Celtic term Sogarth Aroon means beloved or precious priest. It is taken from a poem written by 19th century Irish poet John Banim, memorializing the tender care provided him by his local parish priest. The term reflects centuries of persecution of Irish Catholics by the British, who often were left priest-less and without the Sacraments. Any priest found who could minister to the Irish in those dark days was indeed “precious.” A shining modern example of a “precious priest” would be the Irish priest Father Willie Doyle, a chaplain during World War I. The works written on his life tell the tale of a deeply spiritual and devoted priest loved by the men he served.

 

Banim’s poem rightfully commends those brave priests and devoted parish priests who risked their lives and health to fulfill the obligations imposed at ordination. But the downside of the circumstances experienced both by Irish and British Catholics, (and later, to those behind the Iron Curtain), resulted in a dangerous attitude which carried over to American soil. In America, as Irish and American Catholic history attests, Irish immigrants were persecuted for their faith and once again exposed to a lack of priests on the American frontier. Certain areas of the U.S. were still considered missionary territory when the false Vatican 2 council convened.

 

So priests indeed remained precious.  And Catholics remained “priest-hungry,” especially in light of the priest shortage that began long before the death of Pope Pius XII.  Following their exodus from the Novus Ordo church in Rome in the 1960s-70s, Catholics generally believed that unless they had access to Mass and Sacraments, they could not receive the graces necessary to gain heaven. This mistaken belief, fostered by Traditionalist clergy who surfaced after the introduction of the Novus Ordo Missae, prompted Catholics exiting the Novus Ordo to find priests without any thought of checking their credentials or studying the matter to see what the Church has required in similar times to guarantee purity of faith.

 

Those convinced they must have Mass and Sacraments at any cost made little gods of these “priests,” when most of them were not even validly ordained. And even though there were legitimate questions raised by the disenchanted and complaints made about their validity, liceity or conduct, there were always “loyal” followers who shouted the naysayers down, willing to do anything to keep their precious priests. And so the compromises and denial began, and eventually anyone with a collar calling themselves a priest — regardless of any purported credentials — became eligible to head a congregation. The focus was not the truth, it was not what Christ taught while on earth, it was not the constant teaching of the Church throughout the ages. The focus was on the precious priests and a handful of precious “bishops” willing to ordain more of them and consecrate other bishops.

 

Gimmee, gimmee, gimmee. I want my Sacraments and my Mass, my graces, my ticket to heaven. I want my precious priest to make myself look legitimate to my family and community, to carry my questions and troubles to. Everyone else has a pastor and a church, why can’t I have one?  This is “Catholic” entitlement at its best. “After all,” they will scream at you, “the Church as it was constituted by Christ will last forever, right? We will always have the Mass and the Sacraments. And if you don’t accept that, then you are not Catholic, you crazy stay-at-home people. I don’t care what Francis says; I don’t obey him in the things he teaches that aren’t really Catholic.” But do you really think a true pope could ever publicly teach something that is not Catholic?!

 

NEWSFLASH: The Church as Christ constituted it consisted of Christ, the invisible Head; St. Peter the visible head; the Apostles subject to St. Peter and his successors and only then, the priests subject to their bishops who granted them short-term, delegated jurisdiction, subject to expiration, review and revocation. If you don’t obey Francis in all things, then you have already admitted the Church doesn’t have a true pope and you are not part of that church. No one who refuses to obey a real pope can remain a member in good standing, or a member of any kind; it is a dogma of faith. And while Traditionalists are condemning stay-at-homes for denying the Church’s indefectibility, they are making a laughingstock of themselves.

 

Christ constituted the Church with Peter as its necessarily visible head; the bishops can function validly only in communion with and with the approval of a canonically elected Roman Pontiff. All of this is Church teaching binding on Catholics. So if Christ promised that the Church as He constituted it would last forever, where is Peter given that Francis is not a true pope?  How can Traditionalists accuse others of impugning indefectibility when they cannot even fulfill the Church’s definition of that dogma themselves?

 

Are they calling Christ a liar for allowing this extended vacancy of the papal see if they claim that the Church must always exist as Christ constituted it, and yet it does not? Because in essence, that is what they are doing, although few will admit it. They have no basis as a movement or whatever they wish to call themselves for championing indefectibility when they themselves do not satisfy the definition of that term. The only person Christ guaranteed as indefectible in faith was the Roman Pontiff; not the priests, not the bishops, not even the cardinals.

 

The Church is indefectible, yes; but as approved theologians have noted, the Church primarily is the Vicar of Christ, and only secondarily the entire body of faithful including the hierarchy. The laity can be considered the Church only in times of persecution and calamity, and even then, only if they abide by the teachings of the continual magisterium and ecclesiastical discipline.  The Sogarth Aroon was indeed precious; he exists no more. This is the Divine Punishment Christ has laid upon us for disobeying His Vicars and valuing exterior religion over the interior life.

 

Hear His words in Chapter II of the Apocalypse, where he tells St. John concerning the Church of Ephesus: “Be mindful from whence thou art fallen… do penance, and do thy first works.… Or else I will move thy candlestick out of its place, except thou do penance.” The candlestick Rev. E.S. Berry interprets here as the Church, removed from the faithful “by means of persecution, heresy, apostasy and schism. Only too often has this threat been carried out in the history of the Church.” In another place he writes, “Candlesticks represents all churches throughout the world for all time (The Apocalypse of St. John, 1921). But of course, Traditionalists and others claiming the name Catholic do not believe this could ever happen to them.

 

More importantly, the prophet Daniel foretold the Sacrifice would cease. That his words apply to the Holy Sacrifice and not just the Jewish sacrifice is the unanimous teaching of the Ancient Fathers, St. Alphonsus Liguori, St, Francis de Sales and others.  The Vatican Council teaches that when the Fathers agree unanimously on the meaning of a Scripture passage, this constitutes a rule of faith; it cannot be refuted.  The Catholic Mass did cease; Traditionalists had no right to celebrate it, and no, Quo Primum did not give them that right. For the very validity of their orders and possession of any remining jurisdiction (in the early years following the death of Pope Pius XII) was in question.

 

If validly ordained, they were bound under Canon Law to offer Mass privately, with no one in attendance, and no one receiving the Sacraments, because whatever jurisdiction they may have possessed quickly expired, in nearly all cases. Those doubtfully ordained could not function in any way until a true pope ruled on the validity of their orders. Even the attempt to function rendered their acts null and void, according to Canon Law and the teaching of Pope Pius XII. But those following the church in Rome, even though they may find Francis contemptible, will not accept the fact he was a heretic pre-election, and Traditionalists refuse to seriously consider the abundant proofs that John 23 was never validly elected, wiping out his so-called successors.

 

Drexelius in his classic spiritual work Heliotropium comments that the theologians teach God’s will is expressed in His laws and precepts; these include the laws made by His Vicars, which He has bound in Heaven. Unless we do God’s will, we cannot hope to merit eternal salvation. We find proof of this in Holy Scripture, where we read: “Not everyone who saith to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of Heaven, but he that doth the will of My Father who is in Heaven” (Matt. 7: 21). St. Cyprian tells us that the will of God is what Christ has done and taught. For Christ came down from Heaven, “not to do My own will, but the will of Him that sent Me” (John 6:38).

 

In the Garden of Gethsemane shortly before His death, Christ renewed His intent to obey His Father in all things. He willed to suffer a horrible agony and death to accomplish that obedience and our redemption. He told His disciples that on the other side of this horrible suffering and ignominy was new life, the Resurrection. And still they begged Him not to do His Father’s will; to escape His fate instead. Many beg us to escape our own suffering and forget we must obey. They urge us to attend illicit or invalid Masses and receive invalid or sacrilegious Sacraments; to place ourselves under some invalidly ordained and/or consecrated cleric. Like Christ, we have only one choice we can make if we are to accomplish our eternal goal.

A blessed New Year to all

Jan. 1, 2019

We praise Thee and bless Thee dear Jesus, because by Thy coming and death on the Cross, Thou hast accomplished our redemption. How can we possibly repay Thee for the gift to us on ChristMass of Thyself? By praying and watching with Thee and refusing to be duped by the false christs and prophets now roaming the world, seeking whom they may devour. Time marches on, to eventually culminate in the coming grand finale to all we have experienced here on earth since we lost the visible Church.  There are signposts along the way, and we must keep track of them. Several have been brought to my attention recently that I need to share.

  1. The darkening of the sun

In Matthew 24:21 “For there shall be then great tribulation, such as hath not been from the beginning of the world until now, neither shall be….29: And immediately after the tribulation of those days, the sun shall be darkened and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of heaven shall be moved.” Recent articles on the Internet describe the intent of scientists to actually darken the sun in order to lessen the effects of global warming, a global warming another Internet article indicates these same self-glorifying scientists have also created themselves (https://www.msn.com/en-au/news/techandscience/china-and-russia-are-working-on-a-controversial-heating-experiment-to-modify-the-earths-atmosphere/ar-BBR35EL?li=AA4Zor).

Notice Our Lord says, “The sun shall be darkened…” He doesn’t say the sun shall grow dark or become dark. The way this is put suggests something external actually shall be done to darken the sun.  Rev. Leo Haydock says this darkness of the sun refers to Jesus Christ, Light of the World, a light that will no longer be allowed to shine. The moon, he says, is the Church, which ceases to give Her light (teaching of Christ) and “will appear as involved in darkness.” The stars falling from heaven are interpreted elsewhere in Holy Scripture as bishops apostatizing from the faith, but Rev. Haydock says they will simply cease to shine.  Like the Church, they cannot give light they no longer possess. Rev. E. S. Berry interprets the darkening of the sun as the weakening of Catholic faith. It seems that the spiritual sense must first precede the literal, which has happened. The neo-Modernists have both darkened the sun that is the Church by the plot hatched to destroy Her and by their science have worked to also achieve the physical reality. The spiritual interpretation of Scripture is foremost. But it does not preclude the actual physical fulfillment of the prophecy as well. Both can occur, the physical mirroring the spiritual reality.

  1. The sounding of trumpets

People from around the world have reported they are hearing the sound of trumpets and other strange, unearthly sounds, beginning in 2008. The sounds heard in Canada resemble faraway church bells. Those in Germany and other parts of Europe sound like the brass section of a mighty orchestra tuning up, as do those in Hawaii. Sounds heard in Slovakia and Japan are more fearsome, resembling the roar of a deadly predator stalking its prey. Apoc. 14:2: “And I heard a voice from heaven, as the noise of many waters, and as the voice of great thunder; and the voice which I heard, was as the voice of harpers, harping on their harps.” Some of the noises featured on videos could be described as the noise of many waters, the sounds of thunder and the music of harps. Signs were seen in the sky as described in Holy Scripture by the prophet Elias (the “little foot,” cloud 1 Kings 18:41). Carmelite writers interpret the small cloud as a figure of the Virgin Mary, and some believe that foot is the very one that will crush the head of Satan in the end times. Elias’ successor Elisha was shown an army of angels with fiery chariots, to protect him from his enemies, (2 Kings 6: 16-17).

Following the destruction of the Jewish temple in 70 A.D., the Jewish historians Josephus Flavius and Tacitus described a vision they had seen in A.D. 75,  several years after the destruction of the Temple in Jerusalem (70 A.D.) and a year or two following the Roman massacre of Jews at the Judaean fortress Masada. These Jews had fled to Masada following the Temple destruction and died there in 73 or 74 A.D. This vision was similar to that seen by Elisha, but minus the angels. The historians report armed battalions and chariots were seen racing through the clouds. Some also reported the vision was accompanied by a minor earthquake.

There is also this verse from Isaias: “And it shall come to pass, that in that day the Lord will strike from the channel of the river even to the torrent of Egypt, and you shall be gathered together one by one, O ye children of Israel. Isaias 27:13: And it shall come to pass, that in that day a noise shall be made with a great trumpet, and they that were lost, shall come from the land of the Assyrians, and they that were outcasts in the land of Egypt, and they shall adore the Lord in the holy mount in Jerusalem. Likewise the first pope, St. Peter, told those witnessing Pentecost (Acts 2: 14-21): “This is that which was spoken of by the prophet Joel: And it shall come to pass, in the last days, saith the Lord, I will pour out of my Spirit upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy, and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream dreams. 

“And upon my servants indeed, and upon my handmaids will I pour out in those days of my spirit, and they shall prophesy. And I will shew wonders in the heaven above, and signs on the earth beneath: blood and fire, and vapour of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and manifest day of the Lord come. And it shall come to pass, that whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved.” Many have interpreted the signs they see and hear as warnings from heaven that God is greatly displeased with those on earth. Here also is yet another prediction that the sun will grow dark.

  1. Earthquakes in Apocalypse

These trumpet sounds could coincide with the sounding of the trumpet in Apoc. 11:15. St. John the Evangelist speaks five separate times of earthquakes; three of them are great. The first reference occurs in Apoc. 6:12, where a great earthquake appears to inaugurate the chastisement. The second great earthquake occurs when the seven angels receive their trumpets. At this time, another angel casts a censor on earth filled with the prayers of the saints. The third and fourth mention of an earthquake occurs in chapter 11, verses 13 and 19. In verse 13 a “great” earthquake kills 7,000 and in verse 19 an earthquake accompanies an occurrence that could refer to the triumph of the Church.

The fifth earthquake mentioned can be found in Apoc. 16:18. There is an intermediate vision followed by the emptying of the seventh bowl. The intermediate vision describes the battle of Armageddon (which could have both a literal AND a spiritual meaning) but seems to relate to Chapter 19 and the defeat of the nations with their head, Antichrist. Apocalypse 16:16-21 provides us with a perfect description of the devastating results of an earthquake which is widespread and measures 10 or more on the Richter scale; also the phenomena preceding it.

Earthquakes in Apocalypse can be said to refer to all manner of upheavals in nature, the fall of governments, wars, persecutions, the eventual violent death of evil emperors/leaders etc. Because the Apocalypse is intended to be taken in a spiritual sense, the earthquakes are not interpreted literally by some commentators. Still, perhaps the great earthquakes, at least, are truly to be taken for earthquakes. Rev. Berry seems to interpret at least some of them in this manner.

Coverage of the 7.0 Alaska earthquake Nov. 30, 2018 was eclipsed by the death of former Pres. George H.W. Bush; broadcast media paid little attention and by the time Bush’s funeral finally took place it was old news. But according to National Geographic’s official site, a worldwide earthquake that no one felt — because it was mainly confined to the oceans — occurred three weeks prior to the 7.0 quake, on the morning of Nov. 11, 2018. The waves caused by this quake “didn’t just zip by; they rang for more than 20 minutes. And yet, it seems, no human felt them.” It was a “slow” earthquake scientists believe, of about 5.0 magnitude (https://www.nationalgeographic.com/science/2018/11/strange-earthquake-waves-rippled-around-world-earth-geology/).  But perhaps it was a harbinger of the Alaska quake, the strongest in recent history. Alaska’s most devastating quake, a whopping 9.2, occurred on March 27, Good Friday, in 1964. It was no coincidence it happened during the middle of Vatican 2.

  1. Paris is burning

This was foretold by Our Lady at La Salette in 1846: “At the first blow of His thundering sword, the mountains and all nature will tremble in terror, for the disorders and crimes of men have pierced the vault of the heavens. Paris will burn and Marseilles will be engulfed. Several cities will be shaken down and swallowed up by earthquakes. People will believe that all is lost. Nothing will be seen but murder, nothing will be heard but the clash of arms and blasphemy.”

St. John Bosco also predicted: “In the second visit the great Prostitute of Babylon, which makes decent people sigh and call it the Brothel of Europe, will be left without a leader and will be a victim of disorder. “Paris! Paris! Instead of arming yourself in the name of the Lord, you fortify yourself with Houses of Immorality. They will be destroyed by you yourself. Your idol, The Pantheon, will be burnt to ashes in order that this may come true: ‘violence uttereth lies against me.’ Your enemies will reduce you to want, to hunger, to fear, and will make you the abomination of the nations. Ah, woe to you, if you do not recognize the hand that strikes you! I want to punish immorality, the despising of and the contempt for My law, says the Lord. …

Marie Mattel of Tilly (d. 1899) She saw in a vision great darkness, accompanying thunder and the destruction of nearly all of Paris through fire as well as the destruction of Marseilles and other cities. (Prophets and Our Times, Gerald Culleton).

What are we to make of these prophetic indicators? It is true that they are happening with increasing frequency and seem to be sent as pointed reminders of the times in which we live. Is the final act of this terrifying performance we have been witnessing drawing any closer? Perhaps, but no one can be certain. Traditionalists and those in other non-Catholic sects seem to dismiss these signs as merely “preparatory visions,” not pertaining to the times in which we live. They refuse to believe we live in the times of Antichrist, but no one has dared challenge Pope Pius IX’s teaching that without the pope the Church cannot exist.

This being the case, Traditionalism as well as the church in Rome are both phantoms; the papacy and the Mass could scarcely be lost today when they don’t even exist. So how will Antichrist fulfill Scripture prophecy when he comes, and how can he be Antichrist if he is unable to fulfill them? In the end, will these people reject Holy Scripture as the Modernists before them? And this simply because it does not meet their expectations of the Abomination of Desolation, which Pope Paul IV infallibly taught would be exactly what it was and is?

Sept. 23-25 observations and thoughts on America

+ Maternity of the Blessed Virgin Mary +

Dear Readers,

This week began with the feast of the Holy Rosary on Saturday. It concludes this Friday Oct. 13, and in this same time period we marked the 59th anniversary of the death of Pope Pius XII Oct. 9, the Maternity of the Blessed Mother Oct. 11, the founding of America by Christopher Columbus Oct. 12 and the feast of St. Edward the Confessor Oct. 13. The constellation witnessed Sept. 23-25 has passed without event, although it was definitely an unusual and unprecedented “sign in the heavens,” which seems to correspond to Apoc. 12:1. As noted prior to these dates on this blog, the heavenly configuration was most likely a warning from Our Lady of what is to come.

On Jan. 25-26, 1938, another such warning was seen in the sky. This was the sign predicted on July 13, 1917 by Our Lady that God would give to the world, signaling the beginning of yet another war. In referring to the light, Sr. Lucia dos Santos called it a “great sign,” and “unknown light” which would appear in the sky “during the reign of Pope Pius XI,” as Our Lady had predicted. Our Lady also said it would be: “… the sign God gives you that He is about to punish the world for its crimes by means of war, hunger, persecution of the Church and the Holy Father.” And while Pope Pius XII has been much maligned as the pope who not only allowed Vatican II to happen but actually paved the way for the false council, he indeed was a pope persecuted in ways that those calling themselves Catholics today do not even understand.

“As Our Lady’s prophesied ‘unknown light’ illuminated the evening skies of Europe and North America, the top Communist, Freemason, and Rothschild agent Christian Rakovsky was giving Stalin’s chief interrogator the strategy to approach Hitler with the idea of the Hitler-Stalin pact. This was the idea which led directly to World War II … The ‘unknown light’ shown in the Western Europe evening sky throughout the entire first half hour of the Rakovsky interview at which point it faded. But the same unknown light shown in the evening skies of North America almost till the end of the interview,” (http://realnews247.com/rakovsky_interrogation.htm). And so Our Lady pinpointed not only the time of the actual pact that precipitated the war, but placed it unmistakably in a time frame that will soon be known to be the beginning of the end of the juridic Church. Please see also the new guest post under recent articles by Lauri Brown that further demonstrates Fatima’s message is in perfect agreement with the liturgy of the Church.

Though many seem not to have made the connection, the very same tactics used by the secret societies to destroy the Church are in play today to destroy this country. It began in earnest with the election of Barack Obama, whose citizenship was (and still is) contested just as Roncalli’s Church membership was later contested. Many things were done secretly by Obama that are just now coming to light, as with the usurpers. This was the general undermining preceding the final blows. Today we see the destruction of this country’s culture by the ultra-leftists, bent on ramming Socialism and Communism down the throats of Americans. Christian manger scenes forbidden, 10 Commandment monuments removed, business owners forced to violate their consciences to satisfy public sinners, war monuments destroyed that represent the history of this nation, the dishonoring of Christopher Columbus — the list goes on and on.

Probably the most striking likeness to the destruction of the Church’s devotions, Her Mass and Her Sacraments was evidenced last month when a fourth-grade teacher in Mesa, Arizona substituted the word “humans” for the word “men” in the Declaration of Independence, instructing students to recite the “gender-neutral” version during class-time. One congressman strongly objected to the substitution, declaring the “sacred words” of the Declaration are immutable and incapable of change. But who was publicly protesting when the Canon of the Mass was being falsified — Christ’s own words?  If Christ Himself can be knocked into the gutter, nothing will stop America’s enemies from discarding the words of mere men. Having destroyed the Church, what hope does this country have of saving itself? Unbeknownst to all but a few, the role America has played in that destruction defies belief, and unfortunately she will pay the price for it. Only the Immaculate Conception, her appointed patroness, can save her now.

As the Church goes, so goes the world, so that is the bell that tolls for America. Freedom may be the torch the lady in the harbor holds, but no one is ever free to sin; and that is precisely what these freedoms have come to mean in this country. Men freely created her Declaration of Independence and Constitution as a grand Masonic experiment and can just as freely dismantle it. The Declaration of Independence even says as much. Christ Himself gives us the answer:  “If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you: if they have kept my word, they will keep yours also,” (John 15:20).

Fatima’s predictions will be realized in God’s own good time, regardless of anniversaries or signs in the sky. We continue to watch, sickened by what we see, but knowing that God is with us “even to the consummation.”

Blessings,

T. Benns

Sept. 23-25 observations and thoughts on America’s demise

+ St. Francis Borgia +

Dear Readers,

The final week of the Fatima apparitions is upon us, beginning with the feast of the Holy Rosary on Saturday.

Today we see the destruction of this country’s culture by the ultra-leftists, bent on ramming Socialism and Communism down the throats of Americans. Christian manger scenes forbidden, 10 Commandment monuments removed, business owners forced to violate their consciences to satisfy public sinners, war monuments destroyed that represent the history of this nation, the dishonoring of Christopher Columbus — the list goes on and on.

Probably the most striking likeness to the destruction of the Church’s devotions, Her Mass and Her Sacraments was evidenced last month when a fourth-grade teacher in Mesa, Arizona substituted the word “humans” for the word “men” in the Declaration of Independence, instructing students to recite the “gender-neutral” version during class-time. One congressman strongly objected to the substitution, declaring the “sacred words” of the Declaration are immutable and incapable of change. But who was publicly protesting when the Canon of the Mass was being falsified — Christ’s own words?  If Christ Himself can be knocked into the gutter, nothing will stop America’s enemies from discarding the words of mere men. Having destroyed the Church, what hope does this country have of saving itself? Unbeknownst to all but a few, the role America has played in that destruction defies belief, and unfortunately she will pay the price for it. Only the Immaculate Conception, her appointed patroness, can save her now.

As the Church goes, so goes the world, so that is the bell that tolls for America. Freedom may be the torch the lady in the harbor holds, but no one is ever free to sin; and that is precisely what these freedoms have come to mean in this country. Men freely created her Declaration of Independence and Constitution as a grand Masonic experiment and can just as freely dismantle it. The Declaration of Independence even says as much. Christ Himself gives us the answer:  “If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you: if they have kept my word, they will keep yours also,” (John 15:20).

Fatima’s predictions will be realized in God’s own good time, regardless of anniversaries or signs in the sky. We continue to watch, sickened by what we see, but knowing that God is with us “even to the consummation.”
