The East Thunders: Eastern Orthodox Bishops and Melkite Catholics Condemn Attack on Syria. And the Great "Pontiff of Dialogue" ....... not even a Monologue against the attack so far.
A Statement Issued by the Patriarchates of Antioch and all the East for the Greek Orthodox, Syrian Orthodox, and Greek-Melkite Catholic Patriarch.
A Statement Issued by the Patriarchates of Antioch and all the East for the Greek Orthodox, Syrian Orthodox, and Greek-Melkite Catholic
Damascus, 14 April 2018
God is with us; Understand all ye nations and submit yourselves!
We, the Patriarchs: John X, Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch and all the East, Ignatius Aphrem II, Syrian Orthodox Patriarch of Antioch and all the East, and Joseph Absi, Melkite-Greek Catholic Patriarch of Antioch, Alexandria, and Jerusalem, condemn and denounce the brutal aggression that took place this morning against our precious country Syria by the USA, France and the UK, under the allegations that the Syrian government has used chemical weapons. We raise our voices to affirm the following:
This brutal aggression is a clear violation of the international laws and the UN Charter, because it is an unjustified assault on a sovereign country, member of the UN.
It causes us great pain that this assault comes from powerful countries to which Syria did not cause any harm in any way.
The allegations of the USA and other countries that the Syrian army is using chemical weapons and that Syria is a country that owns and uses this kind of weapon, is a claim that is unjustified and unsupported by sufficient and clear evidence.
The timing of this unjustified aggression against Syria, when the independent International Commission for Inquiry was about to start its work in Syria, undermines of the work of this commission.
This brutal aggression destroys the chances for a peaceful political solution and leads to escalation and more complications.
This unjust aggression encourages the terrorist organizations and gives them momentum to continue in their terrorism.
We call upon the Security Council of the United Nations to play its natural role in bringing peace rather than contribute to escalation of wars.
We call upon all churches in the countries that participated in the aggression, to fulfill their Christian duties, according to the teachings of the Gospel, and condemn this aggression and to call their governments to commit to the protection of international peace.
We salute the courage, heroism and sacrifices of the Syrian Arab Army which courageously protects Syria and provide security for its people. We pray for the souls of the martyrs and the recovery of the wounded. We are confident that the army will not bow before the external or internal terrorist aggressions; they will continue to fight courageously against terrorism until every inch of the Syrian land is cleansed from terrorism. We, likewise, commend the brave stand of countries which are friendly to the Syria and its people.
Lest We Forget, the Month When the Take-Over Happened and The Church Entered the Twilight Zone.
Just passing, some 20 minutes ago, was the 60th Anniversary of the Passing into Eternity of Pope Pius XII. Since then, the world has come to believe that Catholic Doctrine has changed, the Catholic Mass has changed, the Catholic Sacraments have changed, the Catholic Priesthood has been infested with Sodomites and Violators of the Innocence of Youth, the Social Doctrine of the Church has changed into Marxism Lite or Not So Lite. Catholic Universities are where you go to have your faith destroyed, not bolstered. Catholic schools teach the vilest of immoralities, allow unnatural situations, have undergone a Mass Falling Away into Apostasy and Secularism. Catholic Politicians Try to Out Do themselves Fighting to Implement Laws which directly Violate the Natural and Divine Laws. Catholic customs gone, Catholic devotion gone, Catholic modesty gone, a…
"On the 101st anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima, we are presenting one expert report on the issue of an imposter Sister Lucia. Hopefully, the release of this report demonstrates that we are approaching this issue very seriously and have engaged some of the top doctors, scientists, and companies in the world. There will be much more to come, and we need your support now more than ever. The investigation is intensifying.
As seen in this report (and others) the analysis of the photographic images refers to Subject A (0-18 years old), Subject B (20-40 years), Subject C (60 years old), and Subject D (75 years+). Attached is an example of a photograph from each Subject. These are the four groups we divided the images into to organize the analysis. We are currently of the opinion that Subject A and Subject B are the same individual. We are also relatively confident (though not certain) that Subject C and Subject D are the same individual. As Dr. Garcia notes, we are confident Subject A/…
"Birds of a Feather, Flock Together." The Friends of Montini:
Montini and the Modernists:
Once in Milan, the 57-year-old Montini found himself suddenly free, after 30 years, from all Curial oversight and papal restraint. Archbishop Montini set a new course for himself that would leave an indelible mark on his bishopric and future pontificate. He gathered about him a coterie of like-minded liberal fellow travelers, anarchists, Communists, Socialists, Mafiosi, and members of Milan’s artistic and literary avant-garde. As virtue attracts men of virtue, so vice attracts men of vice. The rumor mills of Milan began to run full throttle.
It soon became very clear that Montini was not a Marian priest. He was, in fact, a Maritainist priest, an altogether different being.
From almost the first day of his arrival, the Milanese, who have a great devotion to the Mother of God, started to complain that Archbishop Montini lacked “Marian sensitivity,” a charge reinforced by the archbishop’s…
I would like to post an update of where we are in the Sister Lucy Truth investigation. Here is what we are doing now:
1) The investigator --- whose name I will reveal when he finishes wring his report --- is writing his report on the runs of facial recognition technology dealing with the pictures of "Sister Lucy" throughout her life. This should be done shortly and will be available for the public. 2 Facial Recognition runs have been done, and another, from a third or even fourth company is is being planned.
2) The investigator also wants to employ the best hand writing analysts from around the world to deal with this Sister Lucy Case, which the investigator is now treating AS A CRIMINAL CASE. That means the evidence must be extensive and definitive. There is also another facial recognition analysis of the "Sister Lucy" question, this will be included in the report. The investigator is also nursing the other investigation along. Both of these reports, including t…
Since the Message of La Salette contained stark attacks on the clergy, even the uppermost in the Church, along with warning the world about the Masonic usurpers of the French throne, Melanie Calvat was driven out of France by the government and bishops. She was even, at one point, living in cognito in Italy because of the French threat to her and her Message. The powers that be in the Church --- although not the popes ---- decided that if the Message of La Salette was thought to be forbidden, it would stifle the "outrageous" thought that clergy would actually be the primary object of Our Lord's wrath and Our Lady's warning. These warnings and messages are approved by the popes and the Church. Only the intentionally blind would say that they have not come true, at least with regard to the Apostasy and loss of the Faith predicted. The rest is yet to come.
See a good biography of Melanie Calvat at the link below. My article which presents the Secret of La Salette is next…
INTRODUCTION“The Saint Prophecies great Schisms and Tribulations in the Church.” “The time is fast approaching in which there will be great trials and afflictions; perplexities and dissensions, both spiritual and temporal, will abound … there will be very few Christians who will obey the true Sovereign Pontiff and the Roman Church with loyal hearts and perfect charity. At the time of this tribulation a man not canonically elected will be raised to the Pontificate, who, by his cunning, will endeavour to draw many into error and death. […] except those days were shortened, according to the words of the Gospel, even the elect would be led into error, were they not specially guided, amid such great confusion … Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Our Lord Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor, but a destroyer.” “What I have dreamed is never to come, it is too painful and I hope that the Lord will…
Notice regarding Fr. James McLucas: August 25, 2018
In reviewing information recently published in a Pennsylvania grand jury report regarding clergy of several dioceses in that state who are the subject of allegations of sexual abuse of children, the Diocese of Arlington has learned that one of the priests named – Father James McLucas –was a chaplain and instructor at Christendom College in Front Royal from approximately 1991 to 1995. In a response to the grand jury report, Fr. McLucas strongly denied the allegations.
Father McLucas has not engaged in any priestly ministry in the Diocese of Arlington since 1995, and Christendom College reports that no complaints have been received regarding Fr. McLucas’s conduct during his time there. The incidents referred to in the Pennsylvania report are alleged to have occurred a number of years after he left Christendom.
The Diocese of Arlington encourages anyone who knows of any misconduct or abuse on the part of any cleric or employee of the …
