Not With The Approval of Our Lady
Thomas A. Droleskey
As noted a few years ago, Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI and his band of conciliar "bishops" are Anti-Apostles All, men who refuse to seek the conversion of non-Catholics to the true Faith. This is, of course, a sign that they themselves have defected from the Faith and thus see no reason to seek the unconditional conversion of others to the maternal bosom of the Church whose very missionary work began on the first Pentecost Sunday. Numerous articles on this site have pointed out the simple fact that Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI rejects what he calls the "ecumenism of the return," placing him at complete odds with the entire missionary work of the Catholic Church that begun nearly two millennia on the first Pentecost Sunday.
Here are just four passages, oft-repeated on this site, from papal encyclical letters that summarize the true mission of the Catholic Church concerning non-Catholics, a mission that is not shared by the lords of the counterfeit church of conciliarism:
"It is for this reason that so many who do not
share 'the communion and the truth of the Catholic Church' must make use
of the occasion of the Council, by the means of the Catholic Church,
which received in Her bosom their ancestors, proposes [further]
demonstration of profound unity and of firm vital force; hear the
requirements [demands] of her heart, they must engage themselves
to leave this state that does not guarantee for them the security of
salvation. She does not hesitate to raise to the Lord of mercy most
fervent prayers to tear down of the walls of division, to dissipate the
haze of errors, and lead them back within holy Mother Church, where
their Ancestors found salutary pastures of life; where, in an exclusive
way, is conserved and transmitted whole the doctrine of Jesus Christ and
wherein is dispensed the mysteries of heavenly grace.
"It is therefore by force of the right of Our
supreme Apostolic ministry, entrusted to us by the same Christ the Lord,
which, having to carry out with [supreme] participation all the duties
of the good Shepherd and to follow and embrace with paternal love all
the men of the world, we send this Letter of Ours to all the Christians
from whom We are separated, with which we exhort them warmly and
beseech them with insistence to hasten to return to the one fold of
Christ; we desire in fact from the depths of the heart their salvation
in Christ Jesus, and we fear having to render an account one day to Him,
Our Judge, if, through some possibility, we have not pointed out and
prepared the way for them to attain eternal salvation. In all Our
prayers and supplications, with thankfulness, day and night we never
omit to ask for them, with humble insistence, from the eternal Shepherd
of souls the abundance of goods and heavenly graces. And since,
if also, we fulfill in the earth the office of vicar, with all our
heart we await with open arms the return of the wayward sons to the
Catholic Church, in order to receive them with infinite fondness into
the house of the Heavenly Father and to enrich them with its
inexhaustible treasures. By our greatest wish for the return to
the truth and the communion with the Catholic Church, upon which depends
not only the salvation of all of them, but above all also of the whole
Christian society: the entire world in fact cannot enjoy true peace if
it is not of one fold and one shepherd." (Pope Pius IX, Iam Vos Omnes, September 13, 1868.)
Weigh carefully in your minds and before God the nature of Our
request. It is not for any human motive, but impelled by Divine Charity
and a desire for the salvation of all, that We advise the reconciliation
and union with the Church of Rome; and We mean a perfect and complete
union, such as could not subsist in any way if nothing else was brought
about but a certain kind of agreement in the Tenets of Belief and an
intercourse of Fraternal love. The True Union between Christians is that
which Jesus Christ, the Author of the Church, instituted and desired,
and which consists in a Unity of Faith and Unity of Government.
Nor is there any reason for you to fear on that account that We or any
of Our Successors will ever diminish your rights, the privileges of your
Patriarchs, or the established Ritual of any one of your Churches. It
has been and always will be the intent and Tradition of the Apostolic
See, to make a large allowance, in all that is right and good, for the
primitive Traditions and special customs of every nation. On the
contrary, if you re-establish Union with Us, you will see how, by God's
bounty, the glory and dignity of your Churches will be remarkably
increased. May God, then, in His goodness, hear the Prayer that you
yourselves address to Him: "Make the schisms of the Churches cease," and
"Assemble those who are dispersed, bring back those who err, and unite
them to Thy Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church." May you thus return to
that one Holy Faith which has been handed down both to Us and to you
from time immemorial; which your forefathers preserved untainted, and
which was enhanced by the rival splendor of the Virtues, the great
genius, and the sublime learning of St. Athanasius and St. Basil, St.
Gregory of Nazianzum and St. John Chrysostom, the two Saints who bore
the name of Cyril, and so many other great men whose glory belongs as a
common inheritance to the East and to the West.(Pope Leo XIII, writing specifically to the Orthodox in this passage from Praeclara Gratulationis Publicae, June 20, 1894.)
"So, Venerable Brethren, it is clear
why this Apostolic See has never allowed its subjects to take part in
the assemblies of non-Catholics: for the union of Christians can only be
promoted by promoting the return to the one true Church of Christ of
those who are separated from it, for in the past they have unhappily
left it. To the one true Church of Christ, we say, which is visible to
all, and which is to remain, according to the will of its Author, exactly the same as He instituted it. . . . Let,
therefore, the separated children draw nigh to the Apostolic See, set
up in the City which Peter and Paul, the Princes of the Apostles,
consecrated by their blood; to that See, We repeat, which is 'the root
and womb whence the Church of God springs,' not with the intention and
the hope that 'the Church of the living God, the pillar and ground of
the truth' will cast aside the integrity of the faith and tolerate their
errors, but, on the contrary, that they themselves submit to its
teaching and government. Would that it were Our happy lot to do
that which so many of Our predecessors could not, to embrace with
fatherly affection those children, whose unhappy separation from Us We
now bewail. Would that God our Savior, "Who will have all men to be
saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth," would hear us when We
humbly beg that He would deign to recall all who stray to the unity of
the Church! In this most important undertaking We ask and wish that
others should ask the prayers of Blessed Mary the Virgin, Mother of
divine grace, victorious over all heresies and Help of Christians, that
She may implore for Us the speedy coming of the much hoped-for day, when
all men shall hear the voice of Her divine Son, and shall be 'careful
to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.'" (Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos, January 6, 1928.)
The conciliarists do not speak in the same language as our true popes.
The conciliarists do not speak with the same tongue of our first pope, Saint Peter.
The lesson sung or read at Holy Mass today explains that people from all over the Mediterranean region understood the preaching of the Apostles in their own language even though the Apostles, headed by Saint Peter, our first pope, spoke in their own tongue:
 And when the days of the Pentecost were accomplished, they were all together in one place:  And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a mighty wind coming, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting.  And there appeared to them parted tongues as it were of fire, and it sat upon every one of them:  And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and they began to speak
with divers tongues, according as the Holy Ghost gave them to speak.  Now there were dwelling at Jerusalem, Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven.
 And when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were
confounded in mind, because that every man heard them speak in his own
tongue.  And they were all amazed, and wondered, saying: Behold, are not all these, that speak, Galileans?  And how have we heard, every man our own tongue wherein we were born?  Parthians, and Medes, and Elamites, and inhabitants of Mesopotamia, Judea, and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia,  Phrygia, and Pamphylia, Egypt, and the parts of Libya about Cyrene, and strangers of Rome,
 Jews also, and proselytes, Cretes, and Arabians: we have heard them speak in our own tongues the wonderful works of God. (Acts 2: 11.)
Saint Peter and the other Apostles spoke Aramaic. Yet it was that that the multitude gathered around them understood them in their own language. Yes, the Apostles had been given the gift of tongues on the first Pentecost Sunday after the Third Person of the Most Blessed Trinity had come down tongues of flame on those gathered around Our Lady in the same Upper Room in Jerusalem where Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ had instituted the Holy Priesthood and the Holy Eucharist at the Last Supper on Maundy Thursday fifty-three days before.
The gift of tongues, however, does not consist of speech that is unintelligible. The gift of tongues consists of precisely what the Apostles did on Pentecost Sunday: to speak in one language and then be understood by those who speak different languages. The Catholic Faith, you see, is meant to be spoken with one tongue, clearly and without any trace of error or ambiguity or uncertainty or even a shadow of apparent contradiction. The Catholic Church speaks with but one voice, that of the immutable teaching deposited in her by her Divine Founder and Invisible Head, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, and protected in Its transmission by the charism of infallible guaranteed by the abiding guidance and protection of the Third Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, God the Holy Ghost.
Holy Mother Church does indeed speak with one tongue, with one voice. This is reflected so perfectly in the her Roman Rite, which transmits the immutability of God Himself and thus of the Holy Faith by means of the Latin language.
A liturgical rite is meant to reflect permanence. God
is unchanging. Our need for Him is unchanging. His truths are
unchanging. As the liturgy is meant to provide us with a sense of same
sort of security we find in our earthly dwellings, our homes, as a
foretaste of the security we will know in our Heavenly dwelling if we
persist until our dying breaths in states of Sanctifying Grace, it is
obviously the case that it should reflect the permanence and
transcendence of God and of the nature of His revelation. The Immemorial
Mass of Tradition conveys this sense of permanence by virtue of the
fixed nature of the rites (the gestures, the stability of the liturgical
calendar, the annual cycle of readings, the repetition of the readings
of a Sunday Mass during the following week if no feast days or votive
Masses are celebrated on a particular day). It also conveys the sense of
permanence and transcendence by its use of Latin, a dead language.
As Dr. Adrian Fortesque pointed out
in his works, Latin is by no means a necessity for the celebration of
the Mass. The various Eastern rites are offered in different idioms. And
Latin itself was once the language of the people. Indeed, one of the
ways to rebut the charge made so sloganistically by Protestants that
Catholics desired to "hide" the Bible from the people prior to the
Protestant Revolt is to point out that when Saint Jerome translated
the Bible from the Hebrew and the Greek into the Latin Vulgate, he did
so to make it accessible to the people. Latin was the language of the
people at that time. The fall of the Roman Empire in the West, however,
led to Latin's falling into disuse as the vernacular of the people.
This was an "accident" of history, admitting, obviously, that all things
happen in the Providence of God. This "accident," however, wound up
serving to convey the sense of permanence and transcendence which is so
essential to the Adoration of the Blessed Trinity in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
The Catholic Church speaks with one voice in her language because the Holy Faith knows only one language: truth, which is always expressed with changing clarity.
The readings for the Divine Office for the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel on July 16 reminds us that some of those gathered in Jerusalem on that first Pentecost Sunday were Jews who lived on Mount Carmel who were to build a chapel in honor of Our Lady atop the very mountain where Elias had battled the false ecumenism of King Achab:
When on the holy day of Pentecost the apostles,
through heavenly inspiration, spoke divers tongues and worked many
miracles by the invocation of the most holy name of Jesus, it is said
that many men who were walking in the footsteps of Elias and Eliseus,
and had been prepared for the coming of Christ by the preaching of John
the Baptist saw and acknowledged the truth, and at once embraced the
faith of the Gospel. These new Christians were so happy as to be able to
enjoy familiar intercourse with the Blessed Virgin, and venerated her
with so special an affection, that they, before all others, built a
chapel to the purest of Virgins on that very spot of Mount Carmel where
Elias of old had seen the cloud, a remarkable type the Virgin ascending.
Many times each day they came together to the new
oratory, and with pious ceremonies, prayers and praises honoured the
most Blessed Virgin as the special protectress of their Order. For this
reason, people from all parts began to call them the Brethren of the
Blessed Mary of Mount Carmel; and the Sovereign Pontiffs not only
affirmed this title, but also granted special indulgences to whoever
called either the whole Order or individual Brothers by that name. (The Divine Office, Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, July 16.)
As noted before, it was on Mount Carmel that Elias,
who was battling King Achab's false ecumenism of worshiping false idols,
thereby betraying the true religion of the time, Judaism, by violating
the First Commandment, slew the prophets of Baal (3 Kings 18:19-40).
A traditional Catholic priest, Father Denis McMahon, noted at the Requiem Mass offered for Father Vincent Bowes, O.C.D., three years ago (see Bookended From Birth to Birth) that Eliseus, the disciple of Elias,
asked for a "double spirit" from his master prior to Elias's being taken
up in a fiery chariot (4 Kings 2: 6-13). Elias's mantle fell on Eliseus
as he, Elias, was being whisked away in the fiery chariot Elias's
mantle was to protect Eliseus from the spirit of false ecumenism that
had prevailed on Mount Carmel and was sponsored by the king himself, who
as a figure of the Antichrist.
Father McMahon said that it was that same "double
spirit" of Elias that was given by Our Lady when she gave Saint Simon Stock
her Brown Scapular of Mount Carmel on July 16, 1251, as a protection
against all spiritual dangers, including the false ecumenism of our own
day which so offends God in our day as it offended Him as it was
practiced on Mount Carmel when Elias slew the prophets of Baal. False
ecumenism makes a mockery of His First Commandment. Father Vincent
Joachim of the Holy Family, Father McMahon said, stressed time and time
again the importance of the Brown Scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel
as a protection against the false ecumenism of the Modernists that has
been practiced with such abandon by the conciliar "popes" and their
minions. Father Vincent Bowes, O.C.D., the beloved Father Vincent
Joachim Bowes of the Holy Family, loved God and He mourned that He was being
so offended by men who claimed to be representatives of the Catholic
Church on earth.
Are we as offended by false ecumenism as the late Father Bowes?
More to the point, perhaps, are we offended by false ecumenism because it offends the honor and glory of God and deceives souls, redeemed at such a high price as the shedding of every single drop of the Most Precious Blood of Jesus? (Are you still offended by false ecumenism, Bishop Fellay?)
As we as offended by false ecumenism as is Our Lady, who has sought the conversion of so many souls by favoring them with apparitions, sometimes replete with warnings:
Many years ago in the village of Plantees, France,
there lived a farmer named Pierre Port-Combet, who used to work on
Sundays and Feast Days. At one time he had been a Catholic, but he had
fallen away from the truth Faith and joined a Protestant religion called
Calvinism. He had a great dislike for Catholics and anything about the
Pierre had married a devout Catholic woman
named Jeanne. They had six children and Jeanne tried to raise them as
good Catholics. But even though Pierre had made a vow to allow his wife
to raise their children as Catholics, he gradually led their six
children into the Calvinist religion! Jeanne was broken hearted about
this because it meant that her husband and children were in great danger
of loosing their souls. And since Pierre would not listen to her
pleadings, the best she could do was to go to Mass, pray, and make
This area of France was very Catholic at the
time. There was a law that all people should not work on Sundays and on
special Holy Days, so that they could go to Mass and spend the rest of
the day in prayer and holy reading. But Pierre loved to break this law,
especially on Our Lady's Feast Days, because he did not like the
On March 25, 1649, the Feast of the
Annunciation, Pierre showed his dislike for the Catholic Church by
working near a road where villagers could see him, as they traveled on
their way to Mass. He pretended to work, by using his knife to cut into a
willow tree, which grew beside the road. But as soon as he cut into the
willow, the tree bled! Pierre was shocked as the blood flowed out of
the tree and splashed onto his hands and arms. At first Pierre thought
he was wounded, but finding that he was not injured, he stabbed the
willow tree another time, and again the tree bled!
Around this time, Pierre's wife passed by on
her way to church. Seeing that her husband's arms were covered with
blood, she rushed over to help him. While she was looking for the wound,
Pierre tried to explain to his wife what had just taken place. Jeanne
tried to calm her husband and cut the tree with his knife, but nothing
happened. When Pierre noticed that no blood came from the tree, he
grabbed the knife from his wife and cut off a willow branch. The blood
came gushing out of the tree!
By now Pierre was terribly frightened! He
called to Louis, a neighbour who was just passing by, and begged him to
come and see what happened. But when Louis took the knife and tried to
cut the tree, no blood came out. As the other villagers passed by they
began to realize that the blood from the tree was a warning from God to
Pierre, so that he would come back to the Catholic Faith and not work on
Before long, Pierre
was brought to court for working on this special Feast Day and he had
to pay a fine. And when the Bishop heard about the miracle of the
bleeding willow tree, he ordered some priests to look into the matter.
Pierre and others who saw the miracle were questioned. In the end it was
decided that this miracle was a stern warning from God to Pierre, so
that he would mend his ways!
Pierre had a change of
heart and realizing that he was wrong, he would often go to pray near
the willow tree. But when some of his Calvinist friends saw him, they
threatened to hurt him if he left the Calvinist religion. Because of
this Pierre refused to go back to the Catholic Church.
Heaven was watching over Pierre and after
seven years, on March 25, 1656, Our Lady appeared to him. On that day,
Pierre was working in the field and saw a Lady standing far away on a
little hill. The Lady wore a white dress, a blue mantle and had a black
veil over her head, which partly covered her face. As the Lady came
toward Pierre, she suddenly picked up speed and in a flash, she stood
beside him. With her beautiful, sweet voice, the Lady spoke to Pierre,
"God be with you my friend!"
For a moment, Pierre stood in amazement. The Lady spoke again, "What is being said about this devotion? Do many people come?"
Pierre replied, "Yes many people come,"
Then the Lady said, "Where does that heretic live who cut the willow tree? Does he not want to be converted?"
Pierre mumbled an answer. The Lady became more serious, "Do
you think that I do not know that you are the heretic? Realize that
your end is at hand. If you do not return to the True Faith, you will be
cast into Hell! But if you change your beliefs, I shall protect you
before God. Tell people to pray that they may gain the good graces
which, God in His mercy has offered to them."
Pierre was filled with sorrow and shame and
moved away from the Lady. Suddenly realizing that he was being rude,
Pierre stepped closer to her, but she had moved away and was already
near the little hill. He ran after her begging, "Please stop and listen
to me. I want to apologize to you and I want you to help me!"
The Lady stopped and turned. By the time
Pierre caught up to her, she was floating in the air and was already
disappearing from sight. Suddenly, Pierre realized that the Most Blessed
Virgin Mary had appeared to him! He fell to his knees and cried buckets
of tears, "Jesus and Mary I promise you that I will change my
life and become a good Catholic. I am sorry for what I have done and I
beg you please, to help me change my life…"
On August 14, 1656, Pierre became very sick.
An Augustinian priest came to hear his confession and accepted him back
into the Catholic Church. Pierre received Holy Communion the next day on
the Feast of the Assumption. After Pierre returned to the Catholic
Faith, many others followed him. His son and five daughters came back to the Catholic Church as well as many Calvinists and Protestants. Five weeks later on September 8, 1656, Pierre died and was buried under the miraculous willow tree, just as he had asked.
Fr. Fais, the parish priest from the nearby
town of Vinay, helped a lady to buy the field where Pierre had spoken to
Our Lady. In time the chapel of Our Lady of Good Meeting was built on
the spot where Our Lady had spoken to Pierre. Soon, a large church was
built over the spot of the miraculous tree, and named in honour of Our
Lady of the Willow. Some good person also carved a statue of Our Lady
similar to the way Pierre had described the Blessed Virgin Mary. When
this statue was placed in the church, many people came to honour Our
Lady of the Willow.
But alas, because of the sinfulness of man,
this beautiful shrine did not last and was ruined by members of the
horrible French Revolution. These wicked men took the statue of Our Lady
of the Willow and chopped it to pieces! Oh, what a terrible way to
treat Our Lady's image! However, all was not lost! A good lady gathered
up the pieces of the statue and hid them until the French Revolution was
over. A piece of the willow tree was also saved from the hands of these
After the horrible French Revolution, people
came again to honour Our Lady of the Willow at this sacred spot. The
statue of Our Lady was repaired and in time the shrine was placed in the
hands of the Oblates of Mary Immaculate. Now some priests were caring
for the shrine and could help the many people who came there.
In 1856, two hundred years after the
apparition of Our Lady to Pierre, Blessed Pope Pius IX decreed that the
statue of Our Lady should be crowned on September 8 of that year. More
than 30,000 people were present at the shrine for the crowning of Our
Lady of the Willow, and at least four hundred priests were also present
at the ceremony. And this same Pope ordered that another crowning should
take place in 1873!
On March 17, 1924, Pope Pius XI declared that
Our Lady of the Willow Church was now a minor basilica. Here the statue
of Our Lady of the Willow is venerated. A box containing a piece of the
old willow tree lies under her altar and Pierre's grave is at the foot
of the altar.
Many people come to honour Our Lady of the
Willow at this shrine and many have left little plaques in thanksgiving
to Our Lady, for some special grace which she has given them. Also more
than a hundred miracles are reported to have taken place at this shrine.
Thank-you Jesus and Mary for your great mercies.
Our Lady of the Willow, Pray for Us! (Our Lady of the Willow Tree.)
Does Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI speak like this to those who have fallen away from the Catholic Faith? How can he? He has fallen away himself precisely because he rejects what he has called "the ecumenism of the return."
Ratzinger/Benedict and his band of conciliar revolutionaries, however, promote their false ecumenism without the approval of the Mother of God Who was with the Apostles and the others in the Cenacle on the very first Pentecost Sunday.
Consider this instruction that Our Lady gave to the Venerable Mary of Agreda about the eternal fate of those churchmen who refuse to convert souls to the Catholic Faith:
427. My daughter, when in the course of this history
I so often call thy attention to the lamentable state of the world and to that of the holy Church in which thou livest, and when I so often express my maternal solicitude that thou imitate me, remember, my dearest, that I have great reasons for obliging thee to lament with me and for wishing thee to weep over that which I bewailed in my mortal life ; and which would afflict me in my present state, if in it I were capable of sorrow. I assure thee, soul, thou hast reached times, in which thou oughtest to shed tears of blood because of the calamities coming over the children of Adam. Since thou canst not at one and the same time attain a full knowledge of them all, I remind thee of what from my place in heaven I see going on in the whole world among the believers of the holy faith. Turn then thy eyes upon those
multitudes and behold the greater part of the children
of Adam in the darkness and errors of unbelief, rushing
without hope of salvation to eternal perdition. Behold
also the children of the faith and of the Church, how
heedless and forgetful of this damage they continue to
be, so that there are none who seem to deplore it. For in
contempt of their own salvation, they care not about
that of others and, their faith being dead and their love
extinct, they sorrow not for the loss of souls created by
God and redeemed by the blood of the incarnate Word.
428. All are the children of the eternal Father who is
in heaven (Matth 23, 9) and all are obliged to have a
care of their brethren according to each one s condition.
This obligation rests more especially upon the children of
the Church, who can live up to it by their prayers and
supplications. But this duty lies still more directly upon
those who have influence, upon those who are nourished
by the Christian faith, and who enjoy more of the benefits of the liberal hand of the Almighty. Those who
through the law of Christ are favored with temporal
advantages and who make use of them for the service
and the delights of the flesh, are they who, as the powerful; are to be more powerfully tormented (Matth 23, 9).
If the pastors and the chiefs of the house of the Lord
seek only a life of ease, without caring to engage in true
earnest labor, they will make themselves accountable for
the ruin of the flock of Christ and for the carnage brought
on by the infernal wolves. O my daughter, into what a
lamentable state has the Christian people been cast by
the powerful, by the pastors, and by the wicked ministers,
whom God has given them in his secret judgments ! O
what confusion and chastisements await them! Before
the tribunal of the just Judge they will have no excuse;
since the Catholic truth undeceives them, their conscience
loudly protests, while they wilfully remain deaf to all
429. The cause of God remains neglected and without
a champion; his possessions, which are the souls, are left
without increase; all as it were look but to their own
interest and preservation, each one according to his own
diabolical cunning and according to his state of life.
Truth is obscured, flattery raises its voice, avarice is unbridled, the blood of Christ is trodden under foot, the
fruits of the Redemption are held in contempt; no one
wishes to risk his own comfort or interest in order to
save what has cost the Savior his blood and life. Even
the friends of God are influenced by the evils ; for they do
not make use of their charity and its holy liberty as they
ought; and most of them allow themselves to be over
come by their cowardice and content themselves with
working for themselves alone, forsaking the common
cause of the souls of others. Hence thou mayest under
stand, my daughter, that now, after the evangelical
Church has been established by my divine Son and fertilized by his own blood, those unhappy times have come,
of which the Lord himself complains through his holy
Prophets, saying : what the palmerworm hath left the
locust has eaten, and what the locust left the bruchus
consumed, and the residue is destroyed by the mildew;
(Joel 1, 4) and in order to gather some fruits from his
vineyard, the Lord goes about like the gleaner after the
vintage, who seeks some remaining grape, or some olive,
which is not dried up, or carried away by the demons (Is. 24, 13).
430. Tell me now, my daughter, how is it possible, if
thou still hast a true love for my divine Son and for me,
that thou find consolation or rest in thy heart at the sight
of the loss of souls, which He redeemed by his blood and
I have sought with blood-mingled tears? Even today,
if I could shed them, I would begin to do so with new
weeping and compassion ; and since it is not possible for
me now to weep over the dangers threatening the Church,
I wish that thou do it and that thou spurn consolation in
a misfortune so calamitous and so worthy of lament. Weep bitterly then, and lose not the merit of such a
sorrow; and let it be so deep, that thou findst no relief
except in affliction for the sake of the Lord whom thou
lovest Think of what I did, in order to stave off the
damnation of Herod and to prevent it for those who wish
to avail themselves of my intercession. In the beatific vision I pray without ceasing for the salvation of my
clients. Let not the labors and tribulations sent to thee
by my divine Son intimidate thee from helping they brethren and acquiring them for the possession of Christ
Amidst the injuries done to Him by the children of
Adam, do thou labor to recompense them in some measure by the purity of thy soul, which I desire shall be
rather that of an angel than of an earthborn woman. Fight the battles of the Lord against his enemies and in
his name and mine, crush their head, reign over their
pride and cast them into hell. Do thou also counsel the
ministers of Christ with whom thou conversest, to use
their power in doing the same, to defend the souls in
lively faith and, in them, the honor and glory of the
Lord; for thus shall they repress and vanquish them
with divine power. (Venerable Mary of Agreda, The Mystical City of God, Book IV: Coronation, pp. 382-385.)
How can we approve of or being silent about false ecumenism when Our Lady has spoken thus?
Please explain how any believing Catholic can remain supportive of or silent about false ecumenism and the harm that it does to Catholic truth and thus to the good of souls. No Catholic can support false ecumenism. No Catholic can remain silent about it, no, not even for a "place," Bishop Fellay, in what you once called on more than one occasion "the conciliar zoo."
We must reject conciliarism and its false church and its false shepherds as protect ourselves with the shield of the the Brown Scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel and fight against the enemies of souls in the conciliar, who are enemies of the sanctification and salvation of the human race, with the weapon that is Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary. Our Lady said to Saint Dominic de Guzman in the year 1208,
"One day, through the Rosary and the Scapular, I will save the world."
May this Pentecost Sunday unite us now as never before in our efforts to plant seeds for the conversion of souls and thus of the whole world, starting first with the daily conversion of our our souls as we seek to make reparation to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary for our own many sins.
May it be our privilege to be presented by Our Lady herself to her Divine Son at the moment of our Particular Judgments as her children who were faithful to her Most Holy Rosary and clothed with the mantle of her Brown Scapular during our lives and the hour of our deaths!
A blessed Pentecost Sunday to you all.
