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.
"France, Italy, Spain and England will be in war; blood will flow in the streets; Frenchman will fight with Frenchman, Italian with Italian; subsequently there will be a general war which will be appalling. For a time, God will no longer be mindful of France or Italy, because the Gospel of Jesus Christ is no longer known. The wicked will deploy all their malice."
"Rome will lose the Faith and become the Seat of the Antichrist."
Dr. Chojnowski: The 3 prophecies above, all coming from the Secret entrusted to Melanie by Our Lady at La Salette, seem to speak about our own day. The most important thing in Paris has now catastrophically burnt, the stage is set or it is on-going, for massive civil unrest. Frenchman is already Fighting Frenchman and Italy does not seem to be far behind. Is this the time in which, "God will no longer by mindful of France or Italy, because the Gospel of Jesus Christ is no longer known." The wicked ar…
Dr. Chojnowski: As far as we are aware, having discovered hundreds of photos of Sister Lucy I and Sister Lucy II, there are no photos of Sister Lucy between the years 1949 (i.e., Sister Lucy I) to her (i.e., Sister Lucy II) appearance with Paul VI at Fatima for the 50th Year Anniversary of the Fatima Apparitions on May 13th, 1967. Even though the investigation and the efforts of the investigator have not yet entered into the second part of the investigation, the part in which they try to discover what happened to the real Sister Lucy dos Santos and who the imposter was who they put out as "Sister Lucy" from 1967 on, we do believe that the real Sister Lucy was alive through the end of 1957 and even through most of 1958, primarily because of the interview which Tradition in Action has translated and which appears below. The persistent theme of this interview is that Mankind needs to take seriously the apparitions of Our Lady and her Messages in order to avoid the terrible Chas…
“The See of Peter and the posts of authority in Rome being occupied by antichrists, the destruction of the Kingdom of Our Lord is being rapidly carried out even within His Mystical Body here below (…) This is what has brought down upon our heads persecution by the Rome of the antichrists.” (Letter to the future bishops, 29 August 1987) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2j1MIqYLwAY
Dr. Chojnowski: As you can see from this video and the interview with Fr. Bisig, the Fraternity of St. Peter is exactly how Fr. Poisson portrayed it in the interview published on this website. He sees himself as part and parcel of the Novus Ordo church and urges us to join. Time for another quote by Archbishop Lefebvre: “To whatever extent pope, bishops, priests or faithful adhere to this new Church, they separate themselves from the Catholic Church.” (July 29, 1976, Reflections on the Suspension a divinis)
What to expect as we move ahead with Sister Lucy Truth.
1) 6 More Facial Recognition Reports. 2) Handwriting Analysis of various writings of "Sister Lucy". 3) Another Plastic Surgeon's report. 4) An Analysis of the Ophthalmological data related to the Two Sister Lucys.
We are working hard and trying to get as much out as we can as soon as we can. Please read what we have posted already, sign up for email notifications of material to come, spread the word about our investigation and findings, keep us in your prayers, say the St. Bridget Prayers with the Sister Lucy Truth Board and do not forget to help us fund this project by giving a tax-deductible donation to Sister Lucy Truth.
(Getty) If an American diocese granted permission for the Society of St Pius X (SSPX) to celebrate nuptial Masses within their territory, you might assume a reasonably well-informed layman would hear something about it. Yet, unless you read the Archdiocese of New Orleans’s newspaper, it probably slipped your notice. On March 9, the Clarion Herald published an article by Fr Garrett O’Brien announcing that “Archbishop Gregory Aymond approved a new policy for marriages witnessed by SSPX priests in our area.” According to the archdiocese’s newly updated policy manual, SSPX priests “are able to receive the…
