Prepare Ye The Way For Antichrist
by Thomas A. Droleskey
One of the sure signs of the state of apostasy gripping the counterfeit church of conciliarism is the fact that its current "pontiff," Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, and so many of his "bishops" have no regard for the horror of personal sin.
The denigration of the horror of personal sin, far from being simply an "idiosyncrasy" of a few maverick "bishops" within the counterfeit church of conciliarism, is systematic and has been institutionalized into the very fabric of the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo service that was designed by a committee, the Consilium, on which served the notorious Rembert G. Weakland, O.S.B., whose personal corruption is now a matter of the public record, and sanctioned by a man, Giovanni Montini/Paul VI, who was accused publicly of being inclined to the commission of perverse sins against nature (see Paul VI's Moral Corruption: Rumor or Reality?).
A believing Catholic understands the horrors that his own sins caused Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to suffer in His Sacred Humanity during His Passion and Death and how they helped to plunge those Seven Swords of Sorrow through and through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
A believing Catholic understands that the horrors of his own Actual Sins have worsened the state of the Church Militant here on the face of this earth and have worsened the state of the world-at-large.
A believing Catholic hates his sins, each and every single one of them.
A believing Catholic does not base his human self-identification on his inclination to or commission of a particular set of sins.
A believing Catholic prays to live long enough to make reparation for his sins, each and every single one of them, before he dies. Such a Catholic prays for suffering and humiliation and castigation and ostracism and ridicule and mockery and material setbacks so that he can pay back in this life what he owes for his forgiven Mortal Sins and for his Venial Sins and for his general. attachment to sin, especially the sins of worldliness and disordered self-love. Such a Catholic loving accepts crosses as the means to glorify the Most Blessed Trinity and to make reparation for his sins as a totally consecrated slave of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.
A believing Catholic seeks to do penance and to live more penitentially with each passing day all throughout a given year and not only on the days of penance appointed by Holy Mother Church.
Is this the mind of the counterfeit church of conciliarism? See for yourselves:
The same awareness of the present state of the world also influenced the use of texts from very ancient tradition. It seemed that this cherished treasure would not be harmed if some phrases were changed so that the style of language would be more in accord with the language of modern theology and would faithfully reflect the actual state of the Church's discipline. Thus there have been changes of some expressions bearing on the evaluation and use of the good things of the earth and of allusions to a particular form of outward penance belonging to another age in the history of the Church. (Paragraph Fifteen, General Instruction to the Roman Missal, 1997 edition.)
Who says that "allusions to a particular form of outward penance" belongs "to another age in the history of the Church"? Only those who have lost any belief in the horror of personal sins, those, such as "Archbishop" Robert Zollitsch, who deny that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ died in atonement for our sins (and Robert Zollitsch remains uncorrected and without any rebuke from the head of the counterfeit church of conciliarism, Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, five hundred four days after his denial of the propitiatory Sacrifice that Our Lord made to His Co-Eternal and Co-Equal Father in Spirit and in Truth in atonement for our sins), those who believe that the Mass is but a memorial of the Last Supper and not the unbloody re-presentation or perpetuation of the Sacrifice of the Cross, those who are themselves steeped in lives of unrepentant personal sin and who do now want and/or do not see any need to reform their lives in order to save their immortal souls. In others, conciliar revolutionaries and their disciples, building on the work of Protestants and the early Modernists, believe that "allusions to a particular form outward penance" belongs "to another age in the history of the Church." Those who believe this lie, however, do not believe in Catholicism. They believe in a false, man-made religion that is of the devil.
Those who have been convinced by the ethos of conciliarism, especially as it is expressed liturgically in the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo service, substitute irrationality, sentimentality and emotionalism for the truths of the Faith, responding with such inanities as "A 'loving' God would never send anyone to Hell." "Why is it wrong to condemn people who simply want to be 'loved' by others in 'relationships' that the Church disapproves of?' "Who are you to tell me how to live?" "I have my own truth in my heart. I don't need any Church to tell me how to live." "I control what I do with my body. I have my 'rights' I won't listen to the 'dictatorship' of a 'patriarchal' society."
Those who utter such inanities are impervious to rational discussion, responding emotionally with "but, but, but" to every attempt to defending the objective nature of moral truths, which are knowable by reason alone but which have been entrusted ultimately by Our Lord to His Holy Church for their eternal safekeeping and infallible explication in order to protect them from the vagaries of fallen human nature, which inclines us to make excuses in our sins and to denigrate their importance, even going so far as to deny that objectively sinful behavior is sinful at all--or, if it is, that there might be "exceptions" in "hard cases" to the binding precepts of the Divine Positive Law and the Natural Law that a "loving God" would certainly understand.
Such beliefs are, however, empty projections onto God of human desires to make God into something that He is not, which is exactly what Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI does when he projects his false and condemned notion of dogmatic truth onto God despite the fact that his beliefs have been solemnly condemned by the authority of the Catholic Church. It is indeed very difficult for many Catholics yet attached to the structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism to have a sense of horror about their own personal sins when the man they believe, albeit falsely, to be the "pope" commits grave sins, objectively speaking, against the First Commandment, causing Catholics and non-Catholics alike to believe erroneously that it is not a violation of the First Commandment to esteem the symbols, places and beliefs of false religions.
Ratzinger/Benedict himself has been very dismissive of the horror of the the sins committed by those who are nominally attached to the conciliar structures who deliberately miss what they think is a valid offering of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass on Sundays (or is that Saturday evenings?) and Holy Days of Obligation:
"I have nothing against people who, though they never enter a church during the year, go to Christmas midnight Mass, or go on the occasion of some other celebration, because this is also a way of coming close to the light" (EWTN.com - CARDINAL RATZINGER ON THE FUTURE OF CHRISTIANITY, October 1, 2001).
A man who has no regard for the First and Second Commandments is going to have no regard for the Third. How is it possible for the average Catholic to have any sense of the horror of personal sins when the man who is now the conciliar "pontiff" has minimized the horror of the Mortal Sin of deliberately missing Mass on Sunday and Holy Days of Obligation (leaving aside that the Novus Ordo is not a valid offering of Holy Mass; Ratzinger believes it to be--and it does not matter to him that people only go to what he believes in Mass occasionally).
Why should it surprise us then that a complete and total creature of conciliarism and its falsehoods, the conciliar "bishop" of El Paso, Texas, Armado Ochoa, who rebuked one of his presbyters, Michael Rodriguez, for writing the following on August 1, 2010, in the El Paso Times about two of the sins that cry out to Heaven for vengeance, baby-killing and the sin of Sodom:
I sincerely hope and pray that all El Paso Catholics will take to heart the precious and infallible teachings of Holy Mother Church in the moral sphere, particularly those most relevant to our city at this critical juncture.
Remember: Every single Catholic, out of fidelity to charity and truth, has the absolute duty to oppose (1) the murder of unborn babies, and (2) any and all government attempts to legalize homosexual unions.
Any Catholic who supports homosexual acts is, by definition, committing a mortal sin, and placing himself/herself outside of communion with the Roman Catholic Church.
Furthermore, a Catholic would be guilty of a most grievous sin of omission if he/she neglected to actively oppose the homosexual agenda, which thrives on deception and conceals its wicked horns under the guises of "equal rights," "tolerance," "who am I to judge?," etc.
The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops published a pastoral letter on marriage in November 2009, which is endorsed by our own local bishop, his Excellency, Most Rev. Armando X. Ochoa.
This pastoral letter states the following:
"Among the many blessings that God has showered upon us in Christ is the blessing of marriage, a gift bestowed by the Creator from the creation of the human race.
"The Church has taught throughout the ages that marriage is an exclusive relationship between one man and one woman.
"One of the most troubling developments in contemporary culture is the proposition that persons
of the same sex can 'marry.' This proposal attempts to redefine the nature of marriage and the family and, as a result, harms both the intrinsic dignity of every human person and the common good of society.
"It is not unjust to oppose legal recognition of same-sex unions, because marriage and same-sex unions are essentially different realities. The denial of the social and legal status of marriage to forms of cohabitation that are not and cannot be marital is not opposed to justice; on the contrary, justice requires it."
I urge all of the Catholic faithful to treat homosexuals with love, understanding, and respect. At the same time, never forget that genuine love demands that we seek, above all, the salvation of souls. Homosexual acts lead to the damnation of souls.
Recently, a couple of letter writers claimed that in a democracy, it's up to the majority to decide between right and wrong. This form of reasoning is not only false, it's ludicrous!
While it's true that a majority of the citizens in a democracy has the political power to impose its "morality" on society, this juridical reality has no bearing whatsoever on the intrinsic moral value of actions.
That which makes something right or wrong is the objective moral order established by God, which can also be grasped and appreciated through the use of human reason. In philosophy, this is known as natural law.
Even the ancient Greeks had a basic respect for the principles of natural law.
To simplify: One would have to be ghastly morally decrepit to think that if 51 percent of Americans opine that rape is OK, then rape becomes, in effect, all right. Sure, the majority is politically capable of such a vote, but this could never make rape morally right.
There is such a thing as a corrupt democracy, you know!
Abortion and homosexual acts are unequivocally intrinsic moral evils. And friends, this objective truth doesn't depend on the opinion of the majority.
Frighteningly, if the majority chooses to deny the objective moral order, then we will all suffer the pestiferous consequences. (Every Catholic must oppose certain things.)
Other than making reference to a meaningless document issued by bogus "bishops" of a false church, "Father" Rodriguez's article is a fine statement about the obligation that we have to oppose evil. Was he commended for this by his bogus "bishop"? He was not. He was chastised publicly:
As Bishop of the Diocese of El Paso and chief teacher of our local church, I would like to share some pastoral reflections on certain issues that are important for the well-being of all God's people.
First of all, I would like to state that previous columns claiming to speak for Catholic Doctrine were the personal opinions of individuals and do not necessarily express the belief of the Catholic Church.
I continue to pray for peace along our region and offer my condolences to the families on both sides of the border who have lost loved ones to the ongoing unrest. I am also concerned for the families who have had to leave everything behind to escape the violence in Ciudad Juárez. It is my ongoing prayer that our two border cities can work closer to build a more peace-filled community.
The Church has been unmistakable about its consistent defense of the unborn. It continues to call every Catholic and person of good will to understand the Church's teaching on the death penalty and other end-of-life issues. Every child has a right to life.
Likewise, the Church is a supporter of the sanctity of marriage between a man and a woman. These teachings come from a tradition that wants to promote the good of society. My concern in writing this reflection is not to change these teachings, but to offer a more pastoral understanding in dealing with them.
When we talk about abortion and homosexuality, we are talking about human beings dealing with all kinds of concerns and
unresolved challenges. Our Church does not want to simply judge and condemn, but first to offer Christ's love and compassion. God's first and primary law is love and how love of others is at the same time our love for God.
As Church we want to journey with everyone as they search for meaning in their lives. We believe that Christ offers this meaning. The use of harsh words of condemnation is not the approach Christ invites us to have toward one another. Intolerance closes the door to learning and deeper understanding of each other.
Furthermore, it leads to divisiveness within the body of Christ. It is time for us to learn how to work with each other, even when and if we disagree. Too many people have suffered because of a profound lack of compassion and a perceived arrogant intolerance.
Recently, in our scriptural readings, we have seen that when the Israelites entered the Promised Land after the exodus, they encountered the Canaanites, whom they considered to be a sinful race which was to be exterminated. This mind-set persisted until the time of Christ.
With his arrival, he indicated that this outlook was no longer to be held by his followers. Jesus' own response to the marginalized was always one of love. He constantly preached that love is not exclusively for those who are dear to us. He proclaimed that we must love our enemies and pray for our persecutors.
Our love for others is to be like his own, all inclusive. Every individual is made in the image and likeness of God and for this reason all deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.
God is the judge of our lives, and we are called to spread his Gospel of compassion and justice.
While it is important to offer a teaching on human sexuality which may not be popular in modern society, the Church, nonetheless, upholds that each person be treated with dignity and respect.
I urge all of our pastoral agents to reach out to individuals with a homosexual orientation and their families with compassion. This can be done without compromising Church teaching in any way because our pastoral care demands no less from us. (
Catholic Church advocates compassion.)
"Bishop" Armando X. Ochoa is a heretic and a blasphemer, minimizing the horror of personal sin as he misrepresents the teaching that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ has entrusted exclusively to the Catholic Church for Its eternal safekeeping and infallible explication.
The false "compassion" written about by "Bishop" Ochoa is of the devil, not of Our Lord Himself.
Our Lord shows us erring sinners authentic compassion by understanding the weakness that causes us to sin while He despises our sins and exhorts us to amend our lives with promptness. He did not condemn Saint Mary Magdalene when she was caught in the act of adultery. He did not mince words, however, about what she was to do with her life: reform it at once:
Neither will I condemn thee. Go, and now sin no more. (John 8: 11.)
"Go, and now sin no more" does not mean that one is free to "journey with everyone as they search for meaning in their lives." Such a "search" is entirely unnecessary a the purpose of human existence has been spelled out very clearly and very simply in the Baltimore Catechism that was based upon the Roman Catechism that was issued following the Council of Trent:
1. Who made us?
God made us.
In the beginning, God created heaven and earth. (Genesis 1:1)
2. Who is God?
God is the Supreme Being, infinitely perfect, who made all things and keeps them in existence.
In him we live and move and have our being. (Acts 17:28)
3. Why did God make us?
God made us to show forth His goodness and to share with us His everlasting happiness in heaven.
Eye has not seen nor ear heard, nor has it entered into the heart of man, what things God has prepared for those who love him. (I Corinthians 2:9)
4. What must we do to gain the happiness of heaven?
To gain the happiness of heaven we must know, love, and serve God in this world.
Lay not up to yourselves treasures on earth; where the rust and moth consume and where thieves break through and steal. But lay up to yourselves treasures in heaven; where neither the rust nor moth doth consume, and where thieves do not break through nor steal. (Matthew 6:19-20)
5. From whom do we learn to know, love, and serve God?
We learn to know, love, and serve God from Jesus Christ, the Son of God, who teaches us through the Catholic Church.
I have come a light into the world that whoever believes in Me may not remain in darkness. (John 12:46)
6. Where do we find the chief truths taught by Jesus Christ through the Catholic Church?
We find the chief truths taught by Jesus Christ through the Catholic Church in the Apostles' Creed.
He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me. (Luke 10:16)
There is no need to "search for the meaning of life." Just give people a copy of the Baltimore Catechism, or is that too "direct" and "judgmental" for the likes of "Bishop" Armando X. Ochoa?
"Bishop" Ochoa's reference to "human beings dealing with all kinds of concerns and
unresolved challenges" concerning baby-killing and perversity demonstrates yet again the apostate nature of his conciliarist mind. Human beings face temptations to commit sin that come from the devil and his minions as they seek to play upon our fallen human nature to serve him rather than to obey the clear commands of God that are indeed direct and simple and are easy to obey if we cooperate with the graces He sends to us through the loving hands of His Most Blessed Mother, she who is the Mediatrix of All Graces. Abortion and perversity are not "unresolved challenges." They are two of the four sins that cry out to Heaven for vengeance, or does "Bishop" Ochoa admit that this is how they are defined by the teaching authority of the Catholic Church?
The horror of the sin of Sodom was emphasized by Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ when He spoke directly about what happened to the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha when it was practice there rather openly and flagrantly as it is in the midst of our world today, including here in the United States of America:
And into whatsoever city or town you shall enter, inquire who in it is worthy, and there abide till you go thence. And when you come into the house, salute it, saying: Peace be to this house. And if that house be worthy, your peace shall come upon it; but if it be not worthy, your peace shall return to you. And whosoever shall not receive you, nor hear your words: going forth out of that house or city shake off the dust from your feet. Amen I say to you, it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgment, than for that city. (Matthew 10: 11-15.)
Our Lord was wrong, "Bishop" Ochoa? The destruction of the cities of Sodom and Gomorrha by fire and brimstone as a just punishment for the vile sins of their inhabitants? As noted a few months ago now, it wasn't exactly mint jelly that was being spewed out deep under the seabed of the Gulf of Mexico in the last few months.
What about Pope Saint Pius V, who described the horror of the sin of Sodom among the clergy of his day as follows:
That horrible crime, on account of which corrupt and obscene cities were destroyed by fire through divine condemnation, causes us most bitter sorrow and shocks our mind, impelling us to repress such a crime with the greatest possible zeal.
Quite opportunely the Fifth Lateran Council [1512-1517] issued this decree: "Let any member of the clergy caught in that vice against nature . . . be removed from the clerical order or forced to do penance in a monastery" (chap. 4, X, V, 31). So that the contagion of such a grave offense may not advance with greater audacity by taking advantage of impunity, which is the greatest incitement to sin, and so as to more severely punish the clerics who are guilty of this nefarious crime and who are not frightened by the death of their souls, we determine that they should be handed over to the severity of the secular authority, which enforces civil law.
Therefore, wishing to pursue with the greatest rigor that which we have decreed since the beginning of our pontificate, we establish that any priest or member of the clergy, either secular or regular, who commits such an execrable crime, by force of the present law be deprived of every clerical privilege, of every post, dignity and ecclesiastical benefit, and having been degraded by an ecclesiastical judge, let him be immediately delivered to the secular authority to be put to death, as mandated by law as the fitting punishment for laymen who have sunk into this abyss. (Pope Saint Pius V, Horrendum illud scelus, August 30, 1568)
Just a slightly different approach, wouldn't you say? Pope Saint Pius V knew the the death penalty, which the Catholic Church teaches is the Natural Law right of the civil state to impose upon malefactors found guilty after the administration of due process of law of heinous crime, was the fitting punishment for those steeped unrepentantly in the sin of Sodom after repeated efforts to warn them what would happen if they did not reform their lives. Such is the pestilent nature of this sin that Pope Saint Pius V understood that the civil state had a right to root it out to prevent it from spreading and thus ruining entire people and their nations. There is no such thing as "homosexual orientation," only a conscious decision made on the part of recidivist sinners to choose to persist in perverse sins against nature that do indeed cry out to Heaven for vengeance.
Perhaps "Bishop" Ochoa believes that Pope Saint Pius V lacked "compassion?" Nonsense.
Mind you, I am not suggesting the revival of this penalty in a world where it would not be understood and where the offender would be made a "martyr" for the cause of perversity, only pointing out the fact that the Catholic Church teaches that clerics and others in ecclesiastical authority, as well as ordinary laymen, who are guilty of serious moral crimes are deserving of punishment, not protection or rationalizations, by their bishops and the civil state. Such is the difference yet again between Catholicism and conciliarism. There is nothing to "understand," only sinners to correct and save by exhorting them to quit their sins and to reform their lives.
To seek to use false compassion and sloganeering to make complex that which is quite simple is one of the oldest tools of the devil, who is certainly being served quite ably, whether wittingly or unwittingly, by the hierarchy of the counterfeit church of conciliarism that has gone to great lengths to create a "gay-friendly" environment in the parishes and seminaries and schools and universities and colleges and religious education programs under their control (see
Fearing to Offend Men Rather Than God). The false compassion of "Bishop" Armando X. Ochoa and his blasphemous misrepresentation of how Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ dealt with malefactors as He walked the face of this earth is in need of a corrective remedy, one that will be supplied by the words of Pope Saint Pius X that were issued a little over one hundred years ago now:
We wish to draw your attention, Venerable Brethren, to this distortion of the Gospel and to the sacred character of Our Lord Jesus Christ, God and man, prevailing within the Sillon and elsewhere. As soon as the social question is being approached, it is the fashion in some quarters to first put aside the divinity of Jesus Christ, and then to mention only His unlimited clemency, His compassion for all human miseries, and His pressing exhortations to the love of our neighbor and to the brotherhood of men. True, Jesus has loved us with an immense, infinite love, and He came on earth to suffer and die so that, gathered around Him in justice and love, motivated by the same sentiments of mutual charity, all men might live in peace and happiness. But for the realization of this temporal and eternal happiness, He has laid down with supreme authority the condition that we must belong to His Flock, that we must accept His doctrine, that we must practice virtue, and that we must accept the teaching and guidance of Peter and his successors. Further, whilst Jesus was kind to sinners and to those who went astray, He did not respect their false ideas, however sincere they might have appeared. He loved them all, but He instructed them in order to convert them and save them. Whilst He called to Himself in order to comfort them, those who toiled and suffered, it was not to preach to them the jealousy of a chimerical equality. Whilst He lifted up the lowly, it was not to instill in them the sentiment of a dignity independent from, and rebellious against, the duty of obedience. Whilst His heart overflowed with gentleness for the souls of good-will, He could also arm Himself with holy indignation against the profaners of the House of God, against the wretched men who scandalized the little ones, against the authorities who crush the people with the weight of heavy burdens without putting out a hand to lift them. He was as strong as he was gentle. He reproved, threatened, chastised, knowing, and teaching us that fear is the beginning of wisdom, and that it is sometimes proper for a man to cut off an offending limb to save his body. Finally, He did not announce for future society the reign of an ideal happiness from which suffering would be banished; but, by His lessons and by His example, He traced the path of the happiness which is possible on earth and of the perfect happiness in heaven: the royal way of the Cross. These are teachings that it would be wrong to apply only to one's personal life in order to win eternal salvation; these are eminently social teachings, and they show in Our Lord Jesus Christ something quite different from an inconsistent and impotent humanitarianism.
As for you, Venerable Brethren, carry on diligently with the work of the Saviour of men by emulating His gentleness and His strength. Minister to every misery; let no sorrow escape your pastoral solicitude; let no lament find you indifferent. But, on the other hand, preach fearlessly their duties to the powerful and to the lowly; it is your function to form the conscience of the people and of the public authorities. The social question will be much nearer a solution when all those concerned, less demanding as regards their respective rights, shall fulfill their duties more exactingly. (Pope Saint Pius X, Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910.)
As has been noted on this site many times in the past, the spirit of the Sillon that was condemned in no uncertain terms by Pope Saint Pius X is the spirit of the "Second" Vatican Council and the "magisterium" of the conciliar "popes." Was Pope Saint Pius X wrong? Impossible. The words of the last pope to be canonized serve as a stinging rebuke to "Bishop" Alex Ochoa's blasphemous misrepresentation of the life and the work of the teaching of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Is it "harsh" for a physician to warn one of his patients that he risks having a heart attack if he does not lose body weight?
Is it "harsh" for a physician to warn one of his patients who suffers from diabetes to take his medication and to eat properly so that the disease will not worsen.
Is a physician being "judgmental" when he informs a person of a terminal disease that will take that person's life?
How is it being "harsh" to perform the Spiritual Work of Mercy of admonishing the sinner out of true love for the eternal fate of his immortal soul that he is displeasing God, Who wants us to quit our sins, and is risking the fires of Hell for all eternity if he does not reform his life?
We are face to face with what Saint Paul himself prophesied would occur before Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ's Second Coming to judge the living and the dead on the Last Day:
And now you know what withholdeth, that he may be revealed in his time.  For the mystery of iniquity already worketh; only that he who now holdeth, do hold, until he be taken out of the way.  And then that wicked one shall be revealed whom the Lord Jesus shall kill with the spirit of his mouth; and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming, him,  Whose coming is according to the working of Satan, in all power, and signs, and lying wonders,  And in all seduction of iniquity to them that perish; because they receive not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. Therefore God shall send them the operation of error, to believe lying:
 That all may be judged who have not believed the truth, but have consented to iniquity. (2 Thess. 2: 6-10.)
The Challoner commentary on the Douay-Rheims Bible explains verse ten quoted above in the following manner:
 "God shall send"... That is God shall suffer them to be deceived by lying wonders, and false miracles, in punishment of their not entertaining the love of truth.
The devil has sent--and will continue to send--lying wonders and false miracles within the counterfeit church of conciliarism so as to give "credibility" to the sort of false "compassion" that "Bishop" Armando X. Ochoa misrepresents so blasphemously being the approach of Our Lord Himself, which it is is not.
And it is no accident at all, none whatsoever, that the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo service, whose apologists (be they "ultra-progressive," "progressive" or "conservative") have waxed on for decades now about how almost all of the Bible is contained in the triennial cycle of readings for Sunday services and the biennial cycle of readings for weekday services, omits the following passage from Saint Paul's Epistle to the Romans that refers to the sin of Sodom in slightly different terms that those used by Armando X. Ochoa:
 For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and injustice of those men that detain the truth of God in injustice:  Because that which is known of God is manifest in them. For God hath manifested it unto them.  For the invisible things of him, from the creation of the world, are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made; his eternal power also, and divinity: so that they are inexcusable.
 Because that, when they knew God, they have not glorified him as God, or given thanks; but became vain in their thoughts, and their foolish heart was darkened.  For professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.  And they changed the glory of the incorruptible God into the likeness of the image of a corruptible man, and of birds, and of fourfooted beasts, and of creeping things.  Wherefore God gave them up to the desires of their heart, unto uncleanness, to dishonour their own bodies among themselves.  Who changed the truth of God into a lie; and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
 For this cause God delivered them up to shameful affections. For their women have changed the natural use into that use which is against nature.  And, in like manner, the men also, leaving the natural use of the women, have burned in their lusts one towards another, men with men working that which is filthy, and receiving in themselves the recompense which was due to their error.  And as they liked not to have God in their knowledge, God delivered them up to a reprobate sense, to do those things which are not convenient;  Being filled with all iniquity, malice, fornication, avarice, wickedness, full of envy, murder, contention, deceit, malignity, whisperers,  Detractors, hateful to God, contumelious, proud, haughty, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents,  Foolish, dissolute, without affection, without fidelity, without mercy.  Who, having known the justice of God, did not understand that they who do such things, are worthy of death; and not only they that do them, but they also that consent to them that do them. (Romans 1: 18-32.)
Too harsh for you, "Bishop" Ochoa. Perhaps you ought to consider that the words that Saint Paul wrote in his Epistle to the Romans were inspired by the Third Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, God the Holy Ghost. True love, that of Our Lord Himself, wills the good of all others, the ultimate expression of which is the salvation of his immortal soul as a member of the Catholic Church who dies in a state of Sanctifying Grace.
Plain Catholic truth is just too much for conciliar revolutionaries such as "Bishop" Armando X. Ochoa. We must pray for their conversion to the true Faith lest they perish for all eternity in Hell for the lies that they tell in their apparent exercise of the ecclesiastical authority of the Catholic Church. Men such as Armando X. Ochoa are indeed following their conciliar leader, Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, to prepare the way for the coming of Antichrist by saying and doing things that are indeed opposed to the teaching and example of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ Himself.
Obviously, we must face the plain truth about ourselves every night when we make our Nightly Examen of Conscience. We are sinners. We must reform our lives on a daily basis.
We must live more penitentially with every beat of our hearts, consecrated as they must be to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.
We must detach ourselves more and more from the falsehoods of the world, the flesh, and the devil--and from the devil's minions in the counterfeit church of conciliarism.
We must grow in holiness as we pray for the sufferings necessary to pay back what we owe God for our sins, accepting every suffering and disappointment and humiliation and castigation as coming from His loving hand to bend our strong, distorted wills so that we can grow in true love for Him as we offer up all to Him all of the trials of this life through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, praying as many Rosaries each day as our state-in-life permits.
Perhaps it wise once again to recall the words of Pope Pius XI to be assured that the good God is going to bring good of the mess in which find ourselves at this time:
We may well admire in this wonderful wisdom of the Providence of God, Who, ever bringing good out of evil, has from time to time suffered the faith and piety of men to grow weak, and allowed Catholic truth to be attacked by false doctrines, but always with the result that truth has afterwards shone out with greater splendor, and that men’s faith, aroused from its lethargy, has shown itself more vigorous than before . . . . But if the faithful were generally to understand that it behooves them ever to fight courageously under the banner of Christ their King, then, fired with apostolic zeal, they would strive to win over to their Lord those hearts that are bitter and estranged from Him, and would valiantly defend His rights. (Pope Pius XI, Quas Primas, December 11, 1925.)
What are we waiting for?
