Cardinals Opposing Cardinals, Bishops Against Bishops…

“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 (other priests): churches and altars will be 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.”

Message of the Blessed Mother, Akita, Japan, October 13, 1973

The message of Akita is approved by the Catholic Church. It was given to an ill Japanese nun who bore the stigmata by the name of Sister Agnes Sasagawa. Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger, as head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) under Pope John Paul II, who read the Third Secret of Fatima, said, “The messages of Fatima and Akita are essentially the same.”

The collective messages of Akita are arguably the most severe to humanity and the consequences of sin in the history of the Church. This one aspect of the message above we see in the daily press around the world. Many people believe the Church has had a silent schism going on now for approximately two generations.   There are some priests with a wink and a nod “father friendly” have allowed their parishioners to cherry pick what they choose to follow. If one priest is not amenable to a certain doctrine, the individual can simply travel to another neighboring parish and find another priest who will allow them to feel comfortable with their views on just about any subject.

However, with Pope Francis we now see the battle more in the open. Many can see the whites of the eyes no matter where one stands on any issue. Thus, the vitriol and division not seen for ages is presently in the pews of the world. There is little charity and tolerance one for the other—-and it is building faster and more ferocious than ever before. Some people who have had a hidden agenda contrary to Church teaching are now brazenly flaunting their views. This confusion and lack of discipline has not been seen for as long as one can remember. Woe and behold if one disagrees with another who promotes a homosexual agenda as you will be banished to the marshlands and considered intolerant. Don’t expect a Christmas card or dinner invitation if you express a view not their own.

The Reformation five hundred years ago was fought principally over doctrine. The division we see today is being fought over morals. Even the Reformers didn’t try to change the words of Scripture, yet that is precisely what is going on now. Sister Lucia of Fatima said before she died that the last battle in the Church would be fought over marriage and family. We are now in that battle and it is separating the men from the boys. Those who truly uphold Magisterial teaching, and those who want a watered down faith to conform to the culture of the day are engaging in a great spiritual war.

We presently have cardinals and bishops in the U.S., and other world cities not only allowing in stealth an LGBT agenda, but actually promoting it. Speakers and advocates were the leading crusaders for homosexual rights throughout the land. It was not a convocation for shrinking violets, but the bold and bolder now openly promoting a godless and anti-Scripture agenda. Cardinal Muller, head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith under Pope Francis said, “Dubia Cardinals raise legitimate questions.”

I am reminded of the onslaught of the Jews in Germany and Europe prior to, and during, World War II. Jews all over the world after the war wondered how the holocaust could have happened. Historians wrote in amazement there was no early uprising with the signs around European Jews pointing to what inevitably happened. History tells us people of good will found it unfathomable that any nation or race could ever do something as heinous and so in the open. Jews being driven to the gas chambers said, “Can this be happening? It is not possible.” There was a complete denial of the facts in spite of what had been going on for a generation in Germany with a complete loss of faith that started with brain washing the youth on the humanistic philosophies of George Hegel and Friedrich Nietzsche. Win the youth, win the country. The USA and the West have been indoctrinated by godless philosophies and have been brought down morally by the breakdown of solid teaching on marriage and family. This has been a huge agenda of practical atheism. If a nation removes God from the classroom, the state can then easily manipulate the profession of teaching.

Each day we see the news, there is a thought going through everyone’s mind: Can you top this? Did you see the news today? Is this really happening with the moral decay in our culture? Where does it stop? Where does this end?

The answer is, it does not stop until courageous people express the truth rather than accepting the moral slide as inevitable. The problem is, most people lack the conviction to speak up for fear of what others think.

As Timothy wrote to the faithful, “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a workman who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth.   Avoid such godless chatter, for it will lead people into more and more ungodliness. “ II Tim. 15-16.

    One thing to keep in mind are the two beautiful encyclicals on Catholic morality by Popes
    John Paul II and Benedict XVI – Veritatis Splendor and Charity in Truth, both emphasizing
    that true charity is under-girded by true morality. The Holy Spirit spoke boldly through these
    two great Popes, and their morality encyclicals, and the job of Pope Francis should have been to
    implement them, rather than to water them down. We must judge Pope Francis by the infallible tradition
    he inherited, and insist he guard the deposit of faith.

    Funny how the pope and many other prelates cannot see the destruction being caused. I mean, why are the clerics taking chances with their avant garde approach to moral issues? Pope Benedict is the greatest theologian of our time. He is compassionate in his explanations but hardly of a compromising nature. He said the real Church would grow smaller but be more subservient to the truth and to Christ. I hope I am part of that because a spiritual war is coming, worse than the one we are now in.

  • The pastor began throwing Traditional Catholics out of church during Eucharistic Adoration with the help of the police at Ss. Cyril and Methodius Slovak Catholic Church in the Archdiocese of Detroit which has been taken over by very wicked people and turned into a Luciferian temple. Good people have been brutally persecuted all over the inside of the church and in the parking lot and run out one holy individual and family after another as the self interested were treated to funtertainment, fear based faith (you had better conform to the evil or else), annual Archdiocese extortion fundraising campaigns, modernist material, pastor adoration, and false teaching free dinners. The lack of proper leadership and proper protection for God’s people in His Catholic Church has been absolutely appalling as so many cowardly people looked the other way as long as it wasn’t them being bitterly persecuted. Our Remedy: Almighty God our Father of Mercies’ Work of Reparation to the Holy Face of Jesus which must be taught to Christ’s Remnant who do not know of it. Christ’s authentic Catholic Remnant consists of people of all ages and vocations who are willing to and with great courage resist the grave evil seeking to consume us from inside of Christ’s Catholic Churches masquerading as good and His people do so God our Sovereign Authority’s way by making reparation as He wills for each one with purity of intention and devoid of self interest in imitation of and in union with Christ, for all those who hold themselves above reproach including treasonous Catholic priests (note not all are). Christ’s Remnant is willing to teach all others correctly at all costs to self for the sake of all others, again with purity of intention and devoid of self interest. They are authentic Catholic and they remain faithful to Catholic Sacred Tradition. How does one know them? They speak out publicly against injustices. Goh, Team!! IN OUR TRIUNE GOD WE TOTALLY TRUST.

      That’s a fairly serious charge waged against a church or leadership. Actually, diabolical almost.

      Can you document your words from any legitimate news source or religious source? Thanks.

  • Tito

    Ok, but it was not Timothy who wrote the quoted text. It comes from St. Paul’s letter to him.

  • Sienna

    What about Our Lady’s warning? “As I told you, if people do not repent and better themselves, the Father will inflict a terrible punishment on all humanity. It will be a punishment greater than the Flood, such as one will never have seen before. Fire will fall from the sky and will wipe out a great part of humanity, the good as well as the bad, sparing neither priests nor faithful. The survivors will find themselves so desolate that they will envy the dead. The only arms which will remain for you will be the Rosary and the Sign left by my Son. Each day recite the prayers of the Rosary. With the Rosary pray for the Pope, the bishops and the priests.”
    The Bishop of San Jose recently made a public declaration that homosexuals are welcome to the Sacraments.
    North Korea is pointing nuclear weapons at the U.S. West Coast. What happened to Sodom and Gomorrah? God rained down fire. What happened to Pompeii (which was a haven for homosexual activity)? A volcano blew up on it. And there is a comet heading toward earth arriving on the vigil of the 100th Anniversary of Fatima. The same one that dropped fireballs on Russia a few years ago. Does no one think that this is too much of a coincidence, especially because of the clue Our Lord gave us at the last apparition of Fatima at Tuy, Spain?
    I knew the Bishop of Akita (a city in the diocese of Niigata), who succeeded Bishop Ito. He was under great pressure by the people of Japan to condemn the apparition of Akita, but he refused and said that there could be no change in the approval and it would stand as Bishop Ito declared.

    The Akita Prayer of the Eucharist emphasizes the True Presence:

    Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, TRULY present
    in the Holy Eucharist !

    I consecrate my body and soul to be entirely one with Your Heart,
    Being sacrificed at every instant on all the altars of the world,
    And giving praise to the Father, pleading for the coming of His Kingdom.

    Please receive this humble offering of myself. Use me as You will for the glory of the Father
    And the salvations of souls.

    Most Holy Mother of God, never let me be separated from Your Divine Son.
    Please defend and protect me as Your special child. Amen.

    I believe this to be the truth. In Germany the Jews went through what in psychology is known as “normalcy bias” which means that in their thought process what was happening before their eyes could not possibly be true it was just too difficult to comprehend. Same thing happening today.

    Thanks Tedd Flynn…you had made a good observation but on some points kinda bit not certain if Pope Francis is leading the Church in right direction…Let me express my views…God had not given us a clear view of the Big Picture like the Vicar of Christ, how the Church must pass the Great Tribulation & Final Confrontation victoriously…
    Satan favorite verse is 2Thess 2:1-11 because it prophesied how his coming will be…the role he plays in this drama of Passion, Crucifixion & Death of the Mystical Body of Christ as Jesus the Head of the Church suffered to be raised in a Glorious Body…and so the Church must follows the same path for the Mystical Body to be Resurrected to a Glorious Church after the Triumph….
    The Akita prophecy on the Church is subject to Divine Providence it’s a prediction and it can either happen fully or delay subject to intervention of the faithfuls as God deems necessary by His Loving Mercy…
    We must put our utmost fidelity to Church & Pope as Mama Mary said in Fr.Gobbi’s blue book in order for us to be on Her side during the Triumph.
    I admire the Wisdom of Pope Francis in the Art of War against the Church enemies in this age using the strength of the media which Satan controls and his cohorts in propaganda with the mighty help of intercession coming from Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI they had won the battle in Amoris Laetetia by exposing the heart of the Clergys..As you said it has never been seen before that a bishops & cardinals opposing each other in full view but the Two Popes did a masterful strokes and strikes the enemies right at their own gameplan…
    Amoris Laetetia, the Our Father translation and the coming Decentralization is all part of Church Mysterious road to travelrse to effect the 2Thess 2:1-11 prophecy by shaking all the Clergys and the RCC reduced to a handful of faithful people and the True Soldier of Christ emerging ready for battle…
    You see there are only three ending in the drama of the AntiChrist prophecy and the ProtoEvangelium Gen3:15…1.The AntiChrist will be crushed near the Seat of Peter…2. The AntiChrist at the very Seat of Peter and 3. While enjoying his rule for a moment at the Seat of Peter…So bros/sis. all this must come to pass but Mama Mary assured us already so that our faith in the Church & Pope will not waiver “In the End My Immaculate Heart will Triumph”..So let’s all STAY IN THE ARK.Godbless! S&IHMMP4us.Amen

    The seduction of accommodating lawlessness disguised as ‘judge not less ye be judged’ and kindness took centuries, but steamrolled last century into this century. There are certain human philosophies that became evident. Paul the Apostle wrote that ‘itchy ears,’ will raise up false teachers. We should all reach out with compassion and understanding; but with prudence make sure that we share that cooperating with God’s Grace brings reward; but as prudence dictates in any particular venue there should always include over a time period and repeated from time to time that not all who say Lord, Lord shall inherit the Kingdom of God, but only those who do the will of my Father who is in Heaven. In this day of accommodation we need compassionate steady assertiveness.
    The inspiration of The Holy Spirit, as Jesus Christ promised with give us prudent words to at least plant seeds among one another. We each have to let ourselves be convicted by The Holy Spirit and be instruments that others be convicted. I know my life’s decisions and example, leaves me with deep penance for the rest of my life.
    We know that God will end the apostasy for His Namesake in His Time. But souls can be saved with prayer, words, and actions that give Glory to God. Recently, with assertive kindness I related to an unbeliever that we do not want to go to God so sure of things opposed to God’s Ways that have been revealed, otherwise we would oppose God forever and for the Peace and Joy of everyone, just like we have prisons to separate from society those who oppose the law, hurting others; there’s a place for those who do not accept God’s Ways that give true love, harmony, peace, joy, and all things good. At least it gives food for thought.
