I feel it is my responsibility to pass on information that you must discern – We need to know the truth. Our souls depend on knowing the truth, especially when it comes to our Faith.
There has been so much going on….Actually, I am overwhelmed with all that has been happening within our Church, Government, and our Familys. So much division, lies and anger coming from all quarters.
I remember well what a wonderful African Priest once told me. This Priest was the one who told me to kneel before the Blessed Sacrament as he prayed to the Lord that my back be healed. I was healed by the way. He said to me the most important thing I should pray for was discernment. He said discernment helps with all of the other gifts. Discernment is indispensable.
We can see that is definitely true in the times we are now living. It would be so easy to travel down the wrong path these days by just “following along”. We can no longer do that. We can no longer trust everything we hear from those in the pulpit. The reason being is that many of those who have been trusted with protecting souls have gone astray.
I will provide you links to many articles that you can fact check. The sources that I am providing, I think, are very reliable and honest in their writings.
The issue at stake here is in regard to the letter on the family written by Pope Francis. 4 Cardinals have made public what they call the “dubia” written to Pope Francis asking for clarification on his statements in this letter. Pope Francis chose not to answer them.
Article: “Considerations on the dubia of the four cardinals” by John R. T. Lamont, Phil.
Cardinals Brandmüller, Burke, Caffarra and Meisner have performed a signal service to the Church by sending five dubia on the apostolic exortation Amoris laetitia to the Holy See, requesting an authoritative clarification of the meaning of that document, and then making public the text of the dubia when no response to them was given. Cardinal Burke has performed a further service to the Church by explaining this initiative in an interview with Edward Pentin of the National Catholic Register on Nov. 15th 2016, and stating that if no response was given to the dubia the cardinals would have to make a formal act of correction of a serious error.
As is proper, the dubia were formulated in a manner appropriate to an official request of this kind, and the formal act of correction to which Cardinal Burke refers is an act with a legal character. Catholics may find it helpful to be given a presentation of the canonical, historical and theological background to the dubia and the suggested act of correction, and to the situation that has led to the action of the Cardinals. This background is no doubt well known to the four Cardinals, but it is less accessible to those who lack their specialised knowledge. This article is intended to help with the comprehension and appreciation of their initiative. More here.
Kazakhstani bishop hails ‘courageous’ cardinals who wrote to Pope Francis asking for clarity
A Kazakhstani bishop has issued a strong defence of the four cardinals who wrote to the Pope asking for clarity on Amoris Laetitia, saying that they are the victims of “hush-up strategies and slander campaigns”.
In an article for the website Rorate Caeli, Bishop Athanasius Schneider seemed to be responding to an open letter from the Bishop Fragkiskos Papamanólis, the retired Bishop of Syros, who accused Cardinals Raymond Burke, Carlo Caffarra, Walter Brandmüller and Joachim Meisner of heresy, scandal and risking a schism.

Spadaro’s Hypothesis of Adultery as Moral Duty Also Found in Amoris Laetitia
Father Spadaro has been a busy man.
Between forcing Ross Douthat to issue a correction over his reporting of a Twitter spat and to insinuating that this publication is “one of the anti-papal American blogs that were the ‘echoes’ of false news” to appearing to accuse papal critics of being under the influence of the devil to his general portfolio of bizarre online behavior, the “pope’s mouthpiece” is beginning to talk almost as much as the pontiff he works for — and in no less troubling a fashion.

Bishop Schneider likens treatment of four Cardinals to Soviet regime: ‘We live in a climate of threats’
ROME, Italy, December 6, 2016, (LifeSiteNews) — Before a packed room in Rome’s Centro Lepanto on Monday, Bishop Athanasius Schneider of Kazakhstan urged the faithful to ardently hold on to the Church’s Magisterium on the indissolubility of marriage within the current state of ongoing ambiguities.
“When Christ preached 2,000 years ago, the culture and reigning spirit were radically opposed to Him. Concretely religious syncretism ruled, also Gnosticism among the intelligent leaders, as well as permissibilism among the masses — especially regarding the institution of matrimony. […] The sole purpose of the Son of God was to reveal the truth to the world.”
With these words, Bishop Schneider opened his presentation in the presence of Cardinals Raymond Burke and Walter Brandmüller and Auxiliary Bishop Andreas Laun of Salzburg, Austria.
Schneider continued with a presentation on the history of the Church’s dealings with marriage and its irregularities beginning from the Old Testament to modernity with specific references to early Christian writings by Henry VIII of England and Napoleon I, and recent discussions.

Head of Greek Bishops Accuses Four Cardinals of Heresy, Apostasy, & Schism
Steve Skojec November 22, 2016
The number of attacks on the four cardinals for their presentation of dubia on Amoris Laetitia are mounting rapidly. Two out of three of the new American Cardinals — Joseph Tobin of Newark and Cardinal Cupich of Chicago — spoke out just yesterday against the four cardinals. Tobin, described the dubia as “troublesome” and went on to say, More here. (1P5)

“In this supreme moment of the need of the Church,
those who should speak
will fall silent.”
― Prophecy of Our Lady of Good Success
to Venerable Mother Mariana in 1611,
speaking about the “reign of Satan”
that Our Lady said would occur around the end of the 20th Century,
culminating finally with “a dark night” that the Church will suffer
when it will “lack a Prelate and Father to guide it”. More here.
Comments by Bishop Schneider on Schism (interview with EWTN)…reprinted from IP5
Schism is a mortal sin against the faith of the Church which the Catechism of the Catholic Church describes as breaking the first of the Ten Commandments, “You shall worship the Lord your God and him only shall you serve.” We are required to nourish and protect, with prudence and vigilance, the faith handed to us by the apostles and the individual gift of faith given us as a grace by God. We must do everything in our power, with assistance of the Holy Spirit, to reject all that is opposed to the Faith.
As Bishop Schneider warns, an unspecified number of clergy are in a state of internal schism against the divine truth of Christ, and they are employing evil means to hide the reality of their schism including the tactic of intimidation and moral violence. To justify their schism these ecclesiastics are also attempting to project the accusation of schism against clergy, such as the Four Cardinals, who are prudently and earnestly seeking to protect the faith. The personal insults and attacks directed at the cardinals who submitted the dubia indicates the truth about who are the real schismatics, for schism is a sin against charity.
Reprinted from OnePeterFive: Rorate Caeli has released a translation of a remarkable interview, originally published in 2008, with Cardinal Carlo Caffarra of Bologna. In it, he references correspondence he had with Sister Lucia, the principle visionary of Our Lady at Fatima:
Q. There is a prophecy by Sister Lucia dos Santos, of Fatima, which concerns “the final battle between the Lord and the kingdom of Satan”. The battlefield is the family. Life and the family. We know that you were given charge by John Paul II to plan and establish the Pontifical Institute for the Studies on Marriage and the Family.
>Yes, I was. At the start of this work entrusted to me by the Servant of God John Paul II, I wrote to Sister Lucia of Fatima through her Bishop as I couldn’t do so directly. Unexplainably however, since I didn’t expect an answer, seeing that I had only asked for prayers, I received a very long letter with her signature – now in the Institute’s archives. In it we find written: the final battle between the Lord and the reign of Satan will be about marriage and the family. Don’t be afraid, she added, because anyone who operates for the sanctity of marriage and the family will always be contended and opposed in every way, because this is the decisive issue. And then she concluded: however, Our Lady has already crushed its head.
Talking also to John Paul II, you felt too that this was the crux, as it touches the very pillar of creation, the truth of the relationship between man and woman among the generations. If the founding pillar is touched the entire building collapses and we see this now, because we are at this point and we know it. And I’m moved when I read the best biographies of Padre Pio , on how this man was so attentive to the sanctity of marriage and the sanctity of the spouses, even with justifiable rigor on occasion.
Does this come as any surprise to those watching the events currently unfolding in the Church? We have referenced various apparitions in the past that are related to this, beginning with Our Lady of Good Success, in the 17th century:
“Thus I make it known to you that from the end of the 19th century and shortly after the middle of the 20th century…the passions will erupt and there will be a total corruption of morals… As for the Sacrament of Matrimony, which symbolizes the union of Christ with His Church, it will be attacked and deeply profaned. Freemasonry, which will then be in power, will enact iniquitous laws with the aim of doing away with this Sacrament, making it easy for everyone to live in sin and encouraging procreation of illegitimate children born without the blessing of the Church… In this supreme moment of need for the Church, the one who should speak will fall silent.”
When we reflect on the division among prelates at the Synod, Our Lady of Akita comes to mind:
“The work of the devil will infiltrate even into the Church in such a way that one will see cardinals opposing cardinals, bishops against bishops. The priests who venerate me will be scorned and opposed by their confreres…churches and altars sacked; the Church will be full of those who accept compromises and the demon will press many priests and consecrated souls to leave the service of the Lord.” (OnePeterFive)
The following article is very interesting which also needs to be discerned. Catholic Relief Services, an organization most Catholics have known about for years….Are they another Judas???
Catholic Relief Services, Judas, and Mammon (OnePeterFive)
In the 16th Chapter of Luke, Our Blessed Lord gives a parable of an unjust steward, and concludes: “No servant can serve two masters. He will either hate one and love the other, or be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon.” One example of this dichotomy is richly exemplified in the person of Judas Iscariot. More here.
You know what is really scary: how the satanists are infiltrating our schools and government. listed below is a number of satanic events that have taken place in our country. They truly have become emboldened and we need to stop them. This information was taken from “America Needs Fatima”.
The Satanic Temple infiltrating our schools (9 so far) to “teach” our children the “virtues” of Satanism. They have already started in a school in Portland, Oregon and they will spread to Tacoma, Washington this coming December 14.
Professed Satanists running for public office (California).
The Greater Church of Lucifer setting up shop in a family-friendly shopping district in Old Town Spring, Texas.
This past August 15th, the Feast of the Assumption, after conducting a Black Mass and mocking Our Lord Jesus Christ, Satanists in Oklahoma performed what they call the Consumption of Mary. This involved decapitating Her holy image, pulling a pig’s heart from inside the statue and eating it, then smashing what remained of Her sacred image. This was done in a public venue; people paid money to watch this on a stage.
In 2015, Bert’s Entertainment Complex in Detroit unveiled the Satanic Temple’s 9-foot tall statue of the demon Baphomet with two children next to it. In addition, this statue was designed to allow children to climb up and sit on the demon’s lap.
Fox TV recently aired a new series on prime-time television called Lucifer. The program was designed to mainstream the devil, making him appear to be a likeable and misunderstood young man.
Oklahoma City granted Satanists a permit to hold a public sacrilege in front of St. Joseph Old Cathedral on Christmas Eve, December 24, 2015. One Satanist poured stage blood over a statue of the Virgin Mary treated with “sulfur powder and ash.”
The Satanic Temple attempted to hold a black mass at Harvard University, a time-honored institution meant for America’s best and brightest.
In Phoenix, Arizona, Satanists tried to introduce an opening prayer (to Satan) at the City Council meetings. They failed. However after a long legal battle, they succeeded in eliminating all prayer from city council meetings.
