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.
True and False Sister Lucy. Is there a "Fourth Secret"?
Dr. Chojnowski: As we try to figure out how best to post the Handwriting Experts Sworn Declaration which indicates that the handwriting of Sister Lucy post-1958 is NOT consistent with the handwriting of Sister Lucy pre-1958 --- hence indicating forgery and doing much to verify the judgment that the post-1958 Sister Lucy was an imposter --- I want to give my readers the heads up as to what was found in a very brief form. The entire 114 page declaration will be available as soon as we are able. The report indicates:
1) The writing of "Sister Lucy" in 1969 was NOT consistent with the writings of Sister Lucy in her memoirs form the 20s, 30s, and 40s, indicating forgery and an imposter operating at the time. 2) The Third Secret text dating from 1944, released by the Vatican in 2000, was AUTHENTIC AND CONSISTENT WITH THE 20s, 30s, and 40s, writings of Sister Lucy I. Although this is not…
Written transcript of Interview with Fr. Joseph Poisson, formerly of the FSSP, given to RadTrad Thomist in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho on January 5, 2019. RadTrad Thomist has sat down with Fr. Joseph Poisson, former priest of the Fraternity of St. Peter, to give an exclusive interview concerning the inner workings of Ecclesia Dei’s Fraternity of St. Peter. What you don’t know about this organization WILL hurt you!
RadTrad Thomist: Father, I would like to start out with your story. Can you tell us who you are and how you became a priest and how you got involved with the Fraternity of St. Peter? Fr. Poisson: I was always Novus Ordo. I come from Ontario. We lived way out on a dairy farm. The closest Latin Mass was in Ottawa. Because it was an international situation [being the capital of Canada] they have never let go of the Latin Mass. They always had the privilege of the Latin Mass. That is how the Fraternity started there, because of the commitment to keep it going. We were 85 to 100 mile…
Continuation of RadTrad Thomist's interview with Fr. Joseph Poisson. Part II, When the Bishop says "Jump"! Fr. Poisson: The solution of the Fraternity, if there is a problem with the bishop, is to change priests. I knew then, since I was being picked on, that I would never be a parish priest. At one point, I could not even go to the bishop’s Mass, the Holy Thursday [Chrism] Mass anymore. Now I wanted nothing to do with it. So I could only be an assistant priest and I was happy with that. That released me from it. Then I was sent to Scranton. RadTrad Thomist. What was your experience of the [Novus Ordo] bishops that you met along the way? P. What can I tell you on that? R. What did they seem to want from you? P. Oh! They just wanted the money! They want the collections. They want their fund raising They want their Fraternity priests to make their [financial] goals. It is just about their money. We give you the church, the privilege to be here, the collections are meant to…
Fr. Joseph Poisson: There was some anger there [concerning my years with the Fraternity of St. Peter.] But some good things came out of it. I learned to say the Mass, I served as MC at the seminary, I learned the rubrics, I learned about how to do the paper work, the book work and how to run a parish. That is all in my blood. I have had that experience. But the basis of all of it was a lie, that the Archbishop had been [legitimately] excommunicated. Whereas, Fr. Bisig and all of them that left Econe should have known that it was not valid. But they were influenced by Cardinal Ratzinger in a bad way. I got over that. I let them figure it out for themselves. I could write a book about this. But if you are not searching for the truth, you don’t care. You have to want to search for the truth, it means a sacrifice. My reputation is gone. No money, no security, no pension, nothing. No car. Nothing. RadTrad Thomist. Probably the best position to be in if you are a priest dedicated to Christ. …
The third part of the secret revealed at the Cova da Iria-Fatima, on 13 July 1917.
I write in obedience to you, my God, who command me to do so through his Excellency the Bishop of Leiria and through your Most Holy Mother and mine.
After the two parts which I have already explained, at the left of Our Lady and a little above, we saw an Angel with a flaming sword in his left hand; flashing, it gave out flames that looked as though they would set the world on fire; but they died out in contact with the splendour that Our Lady radiated towards him from her right hand: pointing to the earth with his right hand, the Angel cried out in a loud voice: ‘Penance, Penance, Penance!'. And we saw in an immense light that is God: ‘something similar to how people appear in a mirror when they pass in…
I also know that Fr. Pfeiffer has wanted to be the first bishop consecrated by Bishop Williamson going back to at least 2013. Bishop Williamson has not only refused to consecrate Fr. Pfeiffer but he has even refused to bless the oils necessary for the administration of the sacraments for Our Lady of Mount Carmel, Boston, Kentucky.
Fr. Hewko must know that Fr. Pfeiffer plans to be "consecrated" a "bishop" by Ambrose Moran. This has been clear since the summer when Fr. Pfeiffer was definitively asserting that Ambrose Moran was a "valid Catholic bishop."
Fr. Poisson seems to be doing the mission runs to the groups that Fr. Hewko once covered. I really do not know where Fr. Hewko will go. Where is Fr. Raphael now? Both have been so critical of the statements of Bishop Williamson, it is hard to believe that they would rejoin him. Here is the announcement by Fr. Hewko and the link to the statement posted by one of the faithful:
Fake Sister Lucy Tells All to Follow the Revolution of Paul VI Here is the content of the falsified and forged letter attributed to "Sister Lucy" dated December 27, 1969. If you refuse to recognize the imposture, how do you get around acknowledging that Sister Lucy endorsed the Modernist Revolution.
English translation of the text:
Part III of RadTrad Thomist's exclusive interview with Fr. Joseph Poisson, former Priest of the FSSP.
Fr. Joseph Poisson: The Fraternity priest in Scranton one year brought the bishop to the Mass on the Epiphany. Then there was a nice supper afterwards, and they said nice things and he said nice things. It is just talk and they sang music to him. It was just stupid. He does not give us the Sacraments, we get the Sacraments from Bishop Timlin. He is just there to look happy and to see the pretty girls in dresses. They are dressed modestly. Everything to make the bishop happy. He never gave us anything. He never gave us the Sacraments. The retired Bishop Timlin gave the Sacrament of Confirmation. Because our bishop would not get into the old rite. Our Lady was really giving me a sign that I was to get out. Another thing that was pulling me towards the SSPX occurred when I went to Nigeria for 9 months. Before I left for Nigeria in 2010, a woman knocked on the rectory in Saint Cather…
