Was Mel Gibson Blackballed in Hollywood because of his Fatima Movie project?

Tuesday, Jan. 11, 2005 10:18 a.m. EST Mel Gibson’s Secret Meeting with Fatima Visionary
Actor Mel Gibson held a secret meeting with one of the famous visionaries of Fatima, Sister Lucia of Portugal.
z13a
Sisters Sophia and Lucia, Mel Gibson and wife.Sister Lucia, now 98 years of age, is a cloistered nun who as a child saw and spoke with the Virgin Mary in Fatima, Portugal in 1917.
Her visions and those of her two childhood friends, both since passed away, were both prophetic and apocalyptic. The Catholic Church accepted the visions as authentic.
Fatima-based Unity Publishing’s Richard Salbato recently revealed in an online report that after the nuns asked for a private showing of Gibson’s film “The Passion of the Christ,” Gibson not only OK’d the viewing, but the actor flew to Coimbra, Portugal to personally introduce the film to Lucia and her Sisters.
During Lent of 2004, the nuns at the convent in Coimbra where Sister Lucia lives wanted to see the film as a devotional aid in preparation for Good Friday and Easter.
Unable to leave the convent or meet face-to-face with outsiders because of the strict Carmelite rules governing cloistered sisters – and lacking the modern convenience of a DVD player – they sought to contact Mel Gibson’s Icon Productions for help.
According to Unity, word was sent out from the Convent to make contact with Icon or Gibson to get a DVD for the Convent.
Thanks to a girl in Porto, Portugal, Luciana Regadas, who knew a volunteer worker for Icon Productions and Mel Gibson named Lourdes Gutierrez in Florida, this contact was made. Gutierrez, had been involved with the movie in a volunteer capacity, helping to put together two screenings in the Miami, Florida area.
According to Unity, “Mel Gibson had come to Fatima in September of 2003 to ask Our Lady for help in the film and later Jim Caviezel (the actor who played Christ) came to show the film to religious institutions to get their opinions of the movie. He even went to the Convent in Coimbra to show the film but was refused because he insisted on going behind the cloister which is not permitted.”

Gibson and wife meet Lucia.Lourdes Gutierrez, recalled that “Ninety-two e-mails back and forth later and many phone calls, a deal was set to show the film to the nuns. This was difficult because there were no DVDs yet and only 1 inch tapes, which require special cameras and large pull down screens.
“We even got approval for Mel Gibson to see Lucia in a private meeting, but because Mel Gibson might be attacked as using Lucia to promote his film, he, Mel Gibson, and not the convent, insisted that such a visit would be strictly secret.
“In the end only Father Condor, the convent and the Icon Production crew knew of the date of showing the film. We knew the month but that was all. It must have cost Mel Gibson ten to twenty thousand dollars to show this film to the convent because it took a full crew of camera men.
“Mel Gibson later came into Portugal to promote the Portuguese version of the film and then sneaked over to the Convent without anyone knowing and met with Sister Lucia. We were told not to print this or let anyone know unless the Convent or Mel Gibson gave permission for it. This did not come until after the film ran its course in the theaters and the DVD ran its campaign in the stores.”

Gibson Shakes Hands with Lucia.Mel Gibson visited Lucia of Fatima at the Carmel convent last July. He was accompanied by his wife, Robin Moore and Fr. Luis Condor.
According to the convent’s Mother Superior Celina, the actor and his wife are wonderful and very humble people.
“He is very outspoken and a person easily to be liked, and he answered all of our questions about the movie. Some questions were asked by Sr. Lucy, who attended the meeting which lasted for about an hour, was always very alert following the conversation,” she told Unity.
According to Unity, what the nuns or Lucia said about the movie is unknown and may never be known because statements by Lucia or for that matter any Carmelite nun throughout the world are always sent through the bishop or the Holy Father first.
Because of her power of influence, Lucia must be very careful what she says publicly since she is one of the possessors of the so called “Third Secret of Fatima.”
As a child, Sister Lucia and her friends Jacinta and Francisco saw the Virgin Mary in a series of apparitions.
While playing in a field outside of the village of Fatima during World War I they saw a flash of light on top of a small evergreen tree which turned out to be a lady. The Lady asked that they would come back on the 13th for the next six months. At that time, she would tell them who she was and what she wanted.
During the apparitions, the Virgin Mary made some prophecies, telling the children that if man did not stop offending God, a second great war would begin during the reign of Pope Pius XI. Twenty-Two years later, World War II broke out in Europe.
The Apparition, before the rise of the Soviet Union, also warned that Russia, unless converted, would wreak havoc upon the world.
Mary also confided to the girls the so-called Third Secret. The Secret was to be read by the Pope in office in 1960 and then publicized. As it turned out, Pope John XXIII was the pope at that time who read the secret and decided to not reveal its contents.
The contents of the Third Secret were shared with John XXIII’s successors. In June, 2000, Pope John Paul II released the Third Secret.
The message, as recounted by Lucia, was brief but it warned of tribulation for the world and persecution of the Catholic Church, including the shooting of the Pope.
Some Church officials believe that the shooting of John Paul II in in 1982 was a fulfilment of the prophecy while others believe it has yet to be fulilled. Others wonder if the full details of Third Secret had been revealed.
Asked in 1980 why the Secret had yet to be released, Pope John Paul II told a German audience:
“Because of the seriousness of its contents, in order not to encourage the world wide power of Communism to carry out certain coups, my Prederessors in the Chair of Peter have diplomatically preferred to withhold its publication.
“On the other hand, it should be sufficient for all Christians to know this much: if there is a message in which it is said that the oceans will flood entire sections of the earth; that, from one moment to the other, millions of people will perish … there is no longer any point in really wanting to publish this secret message.
“Many want to know merely out of curiosity, or because of their taste for sensationalism, but they forget that ‘to know’ implies for them a responsibility. It is dangerous to want to satisfy one’s curiosity only, if one is convinced that we can do nothing aganst a catastrophe that has been predicted.”
At this point, the Holy Father took hold of his Rosary and said: “Here is the remedy against the evil! Pray, pray and ask for nothing else. Put everything in the hands of the Mother of God!”
John Paul II continued: “We must be prepared to undergo great trials in the not-to-distant future; trials that will require us to be ready to give up even our lives, and a total gift of self to Christ and for Christ.
“Through your prayers and mine, it is possible to alleviate this tribulation, but it is no longer possible to avert it, because it is only in this way that the Church can be effectively renewed. How many times, indeed, has the renewal of the Church been effected in blood? This time, again, it will not be otherwise.
“We must be strong, we must prepare ourselves, we must entrust ourselves to Christ and to His holy Mother, and we must be attentive, very attentive, to the prayer of the Rosary.”

I believe Satan had his cronies put Gibson in just the right set of circumstances to get him drunk and talking in front of a camera. Then everyone could call Mel an anti-Semite and his expulsion from Hollywood justified. It was all a setup.
Was Fatima the real reason behind it all? You decide.

What Christ Did When He Descended Into Hell

Athanasius Contra Mundum

On Holy Saturday, after the Church has commemorated the death of Christ on the Cross, and sung the mournful Tenebrae of Saturday (which before Bugnini we would have done on Friday night) she meditates on the triumphal entry of Christ into hell, before his glorious Resurrection. The part of the Creed where we confess: “Descendit ad inferos” or Descended to the low places (i.e. hell) causes confusion for a lot of people. Why should Christ go into hell?

Here is an excellent old woodcut which explains it.

christus_gessit_inferosHere is a translation of it:

A. The soul of Christ, with no delay intervening, came into the Limbo of the Fathers.
B. The souls of all the Holy Fathers humbly venerate the soul of Jesus.
C. The Soul of the thief, a little after death, is carried by the Angels to Limbo.
D. In the Limbo of the infants there is no…

HELL

30rebel

I have been crying for the past hour or so, while praying the rosary on behalf of my family. I did so because I saw this video:

You can hear the people in hell screaming! Screaming just like they do on TV when the news shows a natural disaster as it occurs, or during a tragedy like 9/11. The first thing that people say is “OH MY GOD!!!!” (save me!).

But in Hell God cannot hear you. Hell is devoid of God. BUT ON EARTH HE CAN HEAR YOU!

This is the trick of the devil. To make you think God has abandoned you on earth because of your sins. NOT TRUE!

Anyone can still be saved. SO… can you imagine your poor Mother or Father in hell? Your relatives? Even your enemies? IT IS ETERNAL!.

Please pray for my soul, that The Blessed virgin Mary will save me from hell. (So that I can in turn save my parents and family).

I promise I will do the same for you.

God Bless you.

Studying the “Christ in Majesty” Mosaic at the National Basilica

1. Flames of Fire in the Halo – The New Testament Scriptures indicate that Christ will judge the world by fire (cf  1 Cor 3:13; Heb 10:27; 2 Peter 3:7-12). Christ is clearly seated in judgment and he will judge the world by fire and also purify those who are to be saved through fire (cf 1 Cor 3:13-15; Malachi 3:3). Further, Both Daniel and the Book of Revelation speak of fire and flashes of lightning around the Throne of God. So it is that these flames indicate the Holiness of Christ and the fact that he will both judge and purify through fire. This fire need not be understood as a physical fire but at least as a spiritual fire.

2, His Angry (?) Look – Many who observe the image say Christ looks angry. At one level this seem likely since on the Day of Judgment there is not going to be any fooling around. The Scriptures speak of this day as a Day of Wrath (Mat 3:7; John 3:36; Rom 1:18; Rom 2:8; Rom 5:9; Col 3:6; 1 Thess 1:10; Rev 6:16; Rev 11:18,  inter al) at least it will be so for those who have rejected God’s offer and have not been saved from the wrath.

But let’s look a little closer at Christ’s face (at Left). Look closely at his eyes. Notice that the one on the right (from our perspective) is more rounded and serene than the one on the left that is narrower and piercing. Notice also that the right eyebrow is more arched and peaceful and the one on the left angled and downward in a severe look. Now take your hand and cover the left side of the face and see that he is more serene and then cover the right side of the face and see that he is severe. This is very common in Eastern Iconography which likes to present both the Justice and Mercy of God on the face of Christ. It is subtle but it is meant to be otherwise we’d have a weird looking face. On the Day of Judgement there will be mercy seen by those who have shown mercy and severe justice to those who have been severe (Mat 5:7; Mat 7:2; James 2:13) for Justice and mercy are alike with him (cf Sirach 5:7). Looking into his eyes I am reminded of the stunning text from Hebrews which says of Christ: No creature is concealed from him, but everything is naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must render an account. (Heb 4:13)

3. What of his other facial features?  – The artist seems to have captured the fact that the Book of Revelation described the glorified Christ as having hair like wool but notice what it says of the color: His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow (Rev 1:14). Perhaps the artist thought snow white hair would be too shocking but we definitely have blond hair here.  The eyes look to be blue or possibly green. Here too our artist has not conformed as well to the description in the Book of Revelation which says, his eyes were like blazing fire (Rev 1:14). This too would be hard to depict artistically. It might look like Jesus had red eye! But perhaps then brown eyes might have been favored over blue since, at least in our age, some inclusivity is desirable in art. Add the blond hair and blues eyes to his white complexion and we clearly have a European Christ. There is only a vague and account of the complexion of Christ in the Scripture: His face was like the sun shining in all its brilliance….His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace (Rev 1:15-16)  These texts speak more of brightness than color. I know that this notion of inclusivity drives some people crazy who prefer color blind society and it would be a joy to get there. But we cannot simply ignore these as factors why some do not like this image of Christ. The Bible’s silence on the skin color of Christ demonstrates that our issues with skin color were not issues pertinent to Scriptural times.

4. What of his red garment?– In Revelation 19 Christ appears riding a strong white horse and John speaks of the robe he wore: He is dressed in a robe dipped in blood, and his name is the Word of God (Rev 19:13).

5.  What of his right arm being bared?: Here too I am mindful of a scripture which says, The LORD will lay bare his holy arm in the sight of all the nations,  and all the ends of the earth will see the saving power of our God (Is 52:10) It is a symbol of his strength and his power to save and put down his enemies.

6. What of the fact that He is seated? As we have noted this is a depiction of the Last Judgment. And of that judgment scripture says, When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his throne in heavenly glory. All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. (Matt 25:41-43)  I am mindful of the old Latin Hymn Dies Irae which says poetically: When the Judge his seat attaineth, and each hidden deed arraigneth, nothing unavenged remaineth.

7. What of the angels at his feet? In the Book of Ezekiel (1:4-21 and 10:1-22), there is a  vision of the four living creatures or Cherubim around a throne, each having four faces, four wings, the stature of a man, four sides, the hands of a man, the soles of a calf. Further, we have already seen that when the Lord returns he will be accompanied by his angels. Finally Psalm 99 says, The LORD reigns, let the nations tremble; he sits enthroned between the cherubim, let the earth shake. Great is the LORD in Zion; he is exalted over all the nations (Ps 99:1-2) Somebody say Amen!

Garabandal apparition of the Devil 1961

From 1961 until 1965 four teenage girls in Garabandal, Spain saw what appeared to be visions of the Virgin Mary, the Infant Jesus, and holy angels. These four children received “messages” about a coming chastisement, a warning that will precede the prophesied chastisement, and a future miracle.

The warning to come first and was promised to occur within a year prior to the miracle. The promised miracle was to manifest itself at a grove of trees near Garabandal. Proponents of the alleged apparitions at Garabandal explain, “It will be the greatest miracle that Jesus will have ever performed for the world.” They go on to explain that after the miracle a “visible supernatural sign will remain in sight until the end of time.” They then warn that if the world does not convert from sin after the warning and the miracle, a great chastisement will follow.

A succession of bishops of Santander, the diocese in which Garabandal is located, have condemned the apparition, as can be seen here: The Alleged Apparitions at Garabandal, Spain

Conchita and the rest of the children signed a document with the bishop agreeing with the findings of the Church and promising never to promote the apparitions again. Does that sound like the Church is open to the possibility that these visions are from heaven? The original visionaries have reportedly lived up to this signed document, but the Garabandal promoters have not.

All of the children have reportedly retracted all belief in the miracles.

Arguments Against The Heavenly Character Of The Visions At Garabandal:

All eight bishops of Santander have, from 1961 up to now, supported by the Holy See in Rome, publicly declared that there is no evidence that supernatural apparitions have taken place in Garabandal. This does not mean the Church is saying that nothing out of the ordinary, beyond the natural, or preternatural happened at Garabandal. It only means that the Church, through a succession of bishops and with the affirmation of the Holy See, has repeatedly insisted that there is no evidence that what happened at Garabandal was of a heavenly origin. What does that imply?

False Prophesies:

A locution told the children that Pope Paul VI would live to see the Great Miracle. This is problematic, because Pope Paul VI entered eternity on August 6, 1978.

In Conchita’s diary one can read (p.164, Dutch edition) that Pope Paul VI knew the date of the Great Miracle.

The “Virgin” promised that St. Padre Pio would witness the miracle. St. Padre Pio entered eternity on September 23, 1968.

One of the locutions received by the children included the prediction that there would be only three more popes until “the end of the times.” Pope John XXIII was the pope at that time. Since then, we have had Popes Paul VI, Pope John Paul I, and Pope John Paul II.

Since Pope John Paul II was Pope John XXIII’s third successor, Pope John Paul II, according to the prophecies associated with the visions at Garabandal, should have been the last pope. This is problematic, because Pope John Paul II entered eternity on April 2, 2005, there has been no warning and no miracle, and Pope Benedict XVI has been validly elected by the conclave of cardinals and has been the reigning pontiff since April 19, 2005.

More Red Flags:

In 1966 Conchita wanted to enter the Carmelite Convent in Pamplona. “Jesus” told her to go back to the world.

Conchita made a museum of her house in Garabandal. She has since sold that house and owns a house in New York and a flat in Fatima as well. Compare that with St. Bernadette in Lourdes.

Conchita reportedly admitted to Father J. Pelletier that she herself had stolen the Host from the tabernacle for the so-called mystical communion.

Just before the visions in Garabandal the four seers had stolen apples. The first vision reportedly began when the girls decided to steal some apples from a schoolteacher’s tree. An unseen force reportedly forced the girls to their knees. In this first apparition they saw what appeared to be a holy angel.

Conchita was reportedly often caught in contradictions.

Strange Claims:

Many of the visions reportedly involved the girls having conversations with the “Lady” about frivolous things, such as how the “Lady” liked their clothing.

The children were reportedly “given” the “Child Jesus” to pass around to one another in a manner very much like the way one would see children handling a toy doll. The children also claim to have touched the “Virgin” many times. However, they acknowledged that they could not feel anything during these occasions.

After seeing the children apparently passing some unseen object around, which was later said to be the Infant Jesus, people asked the girls if they actually touched the Infant Jesus.

The girls replied, “No, you cannot touch either the Blessed Mother or the Infant.”

“But how can this be?” the people asked.

The girls explained, “Well, you see what you hold, but you feel nothing; you feel no weight. If you stretch your hand to touch Our Lady, your hand can go no further because Our Lady is there, but you feel nothing.”

The girls reportedly claimed that they gave sweets to the Infant Jesus.

The “Virgin” asked that the girls not bring blessed sacramentals [rosaries, crucifixes, etc.], because she wanted to bless these objects herself. The vision is reported to have blessed and kisses hundreds of objects. This is troubling for two reasons: first, because only blessed sacramentals affect the devil and fallen angels; second, the Blessed Virgin Mary is not a priest and therefore she cannot confer a priestly blessing.

Conchita reportedly said the Blessed Mother played hide and seek with her.

The Blessed Virgin is also said to have helped find shoes which had been lost by some of the pilgrims.

The Blessed Mother was said to have told the children that she perfumed the brushes of her slippers.

More On The Character Of The Visions:

The visions caused the children to perform unnatural movements with their bodies. The girls were observed and photographed levitating and having ecstatic falls where they were frozen in unnatural positions from which those around them could not move them. On one occasion, one of the children was reportedly lifted over the top of a building. They were led up and down a rocky hill, walking backwards and forwards, with their heads tilted back in an awkward position while moving awkwardly and at an unnatural pace, hundreds of feet to meet the vision. During every vision, the children were forced to their knees in what has been described by some as a quick, undignified manor. Frequently the girls were forced with their heads tilted backwards in a position that appeared abnormal and uncomfortable. During the visions the girls were inspired (or compelled) to perform elaborately embellished versions of the Sign of the Cross that might be construed as a mockery of this simple and ancient act prayer. You may also notice that the the crucifix is not held upright by one of the visionaries during the video, but almost always at odd angles. The girls were also seen, photographed, and videotaped lifting one another other up above their shoulders to kiss the “lady”, whereas, on other occasions, three grown men could not lift them.

All of the children were heard to speak in languages they did not know. On one occasion the girls were heard praying the Lord’s Prayer in Greek.

There were reportedly “signs in the sky” seen by many people on many occasions: moving stars, hosts, images, etc. In one case a fire was seen and the “Virgin” claimed that she had come in this fire.

On one occasion the “holy angel” gave “communion” to Conchita and the host was visible to everyone. She had been instructed to hold out her tongue until the “Virgin” came. Conchita remained in the same position and with her tongue outstretched with the host on her tongue for an extended period of time. Many photographs were taken.

The warning is supposed to be seen and felt by everyone in the world so that all people will know their sins, see their souls as God sees them, thereby having their consciences enlightened and repent. Were that the case we would have no need to be watchful and keep our lamp burning, since God will warn us in time to repent. Moreover, would this not occasion the conversion of everyone who survived the warning? How then would the rest of history, as prophesied in Sacred Scripture play out? How will it be that “the charity of many shall grow cold” as predicted by Our Lord? (Matthew 24:12) Why did Our Lord say, “But when the Son of Man comes, will He find faith on earth?” (Luke 18:8) How will many, if not most of the world be persuaded to follow the Antichrist as prophesied in the Book of Revelation?

If you read the official pronouncements about Garabandal, you will notice they all say the Church cannot say that the events there were supernatural. The supernatural is above all natures, and therefore proper to God alone. So these statements say that the Church cannot say these visions came from God. However, that does not rule out a preternatural influence. The term preternatural is used to distinguish from the divine (supernatural) while maintaining a distinction from the purely natural. The preternatural or praeternatural is that which appears outside or beyond (Latin præter) the natural. The angels, both holy and fallen, are endowed with preternatural powers. Their intellect, speed, and other characteristics are beyond human capacities, but still finite.

Since the prophecies associated with Garabandal, including prophecies attributed to the blessed Virgin Mary, have proven false, they can’t have come from God, The Blessed Virgin, or holy angels, who cannot sin and therefore would not deceive people.

Sacred Scripture Teaches:

But the prophet who presumes to speak a word in my name which I have not commanded him to speak, or who speaks in the name of other gods, that same prophet shall die.’ And if you say in your heart, `How may we know the word which the Lord has not spoken?’ – when a prophet speaks in the name of the Lord, if the word does not come to pass or come true, that is a word which the Lord has not spoken; the prophet has spoken it presumptuously, you need not be afraid of him. (Deuteronomy 18:20-22)

“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thorns, or figs from thistles? So, every sound tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears evil fruit. A sound tree cannot bear evil fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will know them by their fruits.” (Matthew 7:15-20)

Garabandal – A Caution

Garabandal_Hoax

..Garabandal – A Caution
From 1961 until 1965 there was a series of events in the northern Spanish town of Garabandal, which some have believed are due to appearances of Our Lady.  With no intention of casting aspersions on the integrity of those involved in the events at Garabandal, it is appropriate to list 5 important reasons for rejecting the alleged apparitions as spurious.

1. When the children first saw the apparition they were up screaming all the following night.  They claimed it was because they h.ad seen hell.  But Heaven does not inspire us to be lying awake and screaming.  When the children at Fatima saw hell, Our Lady prepared them for it with the promise that they would personally be going to Heaven, and they saw the vision for only an instant.  They were sobered but always at peace.  Peace is a mark of Heaven, agitation of hell.

2.  There was too much of walking backwards, ‘ecstatic falls backward’, and the like.  “Backward” has always been understood as a trademark of the evil spirit.  Defenders of the Garabandal Apparitions  have been quick to point out that, during the ecstatic falls, the girls’ clothing was never disarranged immodestly.  Suffice it to say that even the devil, whose overweening pride and arrogance traps him at times in the grossest blunders, would not have made such an elementary blunder against establishing credibility for the apparitions..

3.  The children were encouraged by the apparition to hold up pebbles from the road for ‘her’ to kiss, and these were then passed round as blessed objects.  This is contrary to all of Catholic tradition.  Why did they not distribute blessed medals, rosaries or scapulars?  The distribution of blessed pebbles does nothing to edify the practice of blessed sacramentals; rather it tends to undermine it.

4.  The priest who allegedly was granted a preview of The Miracle died the following day.  The children were informed that he had ‘died of joy’.  They were later told that, after the Miracle and the Sign, that his body would be found incorrupt.  This was a lapse of prudence on the part of the apparition – because his body was exhumed ‘to find out how he was getting on’ and his body was indeed corrupting.  Some of the more stalwart defenders of the Garabandal Apparitions maintained that his body would be found in-corrupt after the Miracle.   I personally say, this strains credulity too much.  There have been over 200 Catholic saints whose bodies have remained in-corrupt, but never one whose decayed body was restored.  Even fully in-corrupt saints whose remains have been desecrated have never had their bodies miraculously restored.

5. At the last appearance, the Archangel Michael allegedly delivered the message instead of Our Lady because, he said, Our Lady was too upset to carry it to the children.  Is this in character with the Mary of Scripture and the constant tradition and experience of 2000 years?  She who was not “too upset” to meet her Divine Son on the Way of the Cross, and to stand at the foot of the Cross for three hours when all the other disciples had fled – except for John, who came back and remained – would she be too weak to face a parting interview?
The occurrences at Garabandal unquestionably surpass the ordinary course of even.ts, and must be classed as either preternatural or supernatural.  The possibility must be considered that it was due to the intervention of the devil.  It is well known that the victims of diabolical intervention are often  innocent victims, with no more weight of sin than perhaps the average mortal.   If the children  were trapped in this kind of intervention it in no way implies that they called on the devil or were willing accomplices.

What then was the purpose of the Garabandal apparitions?
The proximity in geography to Fatima, and in time to the expected publication of the third Secret of Fatima and the opening of the Second Vatican Council, suggests that the primary purpose of Garabandal was to distract attention from Fatima and especially from the Third Secret, which had been awaited with great anticipation for many years, and whose suppression was not explained in any satisfactory way.  It may be recalled that the area around Lourdes was beset by false apparitions immediately after the Apparitions of the Blessed Virgin to Bernadette.  The devil’s tactic is to distract attention by throwing up a multitude of red herrings.
In the present decades there has been a veritable explosion of alleged apparitions and other preternatural and supernatural manifestations.  In such a time, the prudent Christian will concentrate on the approved 19th-20th Century apparitions of La Salette, Lourdes and Fatima.  These contain all we need for practical guidance through the extremely trying phase of history that we are living through.

[And even as regards La Salette – please be aware that only the very first message from the children has been approved by the competent Church authorities.  The girl Melanie wrote much in later life, embroidering the original narrative.  These writings have been condemned by the Church, and even placed on The Index of Forbidden books].

One last thing: According to Garabandal, the Blessed Virgin Mary has promised that she will one day restore the sight of the blind man Joey Lomangino. This is to happen on the same day as the promised “Great Miracle.” Joey Lomangino is now 86 years old. If this man dies without having his sight restored to him, then this is absolute evidence of the falsity of these apparitions. The Garbandal people will probably try to wriggle out of it – say that the promise was of spiritual, not physical sight, or perhaps say that he recovered his sight secretly hours before death or something like that. But if we see that sort of mental legerdemain, it will be a pretty clear sign about Garabandal, though perhaps not the sort its enthusiasts were hoping for.

Communist infiltration of the Catholic Church

THE GREATEST CONSPIRACY

 

A few months back, during social chit-chat which turned with predictable concern to the modern plague of clerical apostasy, a venerable member of the Society of Jesus recounted various word of mouth histories of Communist infiltration of the Jesuits. These included two men sent to join the Society in Italy and Spain by their respective national Communist Parties – the former having left to return to the Party in the early 1950s after more than a dozen years of study and actual ordination; the latter leaving the Society before ordination a decade ago. More disturbing still was the case of a prominent Jesuit seminary rector in Rome who, after being run over and killed, was allegedly found to be a member of the KGB. We pondered briefly all the imponderables of such infiltration as well as the domino effect it might have set in train, like: how many students were deformed by the seminary professor down the years; how many others, clerical and lay, they in turn, as priests, had corrupted; how many other seminaries and Orders were similarly infiltrated; and, above all, how many of the infiltrators and their warped progeny had risen to the episcopate.

 

In recent years this latter quandary in particular has emerged from the realms of much derided “conspiracy theory” to become a plausible contributory explanation for the otherwise inexplicable levels of corruption, negligence and indifference within Western episcopates. The fact that we will never precisely quantify the degree of infiltration and only rarely identify “plants” beyond all doubt, is no reason to ignore the reality. Besides, it’s not as if we hadn’t been warned. Ex-Communist and celebrated convert Douglas Hyde revealed long ago that in the 1930s the Communist leadership issued a worldwide directive about infiltrating the Catholic Church. While in the early 1950s, Mrs Bella Dodd was also providing detailed explanations of the Communist subversion of the Church. Speaking as a former high ranking official of the American Communist Party, Mrs Dodd said: “In the 1930s we put eleven hundred men into the priesthood in order to destroy the Church from within.” The idea was for these men to be ordained and progress to positions of influence and authority as Monsignors and Bishops. A dozen years before Vatican II she stated that: “Right now they are in the highest places in the Church” – where they were working to bring about change in order to weaken the Church’s effectiveness against Communism. She also said that these changes would be so drastic that “you will not recognise the Catholic Church.”

 

Mrs Dodd, who converted to the Faith at the end of her life, was personally acquainted with this diabolic project since, as a Communist agent, part of her brief was to encourage young radicals (not always card-carrying Communists) to enter Catholic seminaries. She alone had encouraged nearly 1,000 such youngsters to infiltrate the seminaries and religious orders! One monk who attended a Bella Dodd lecture in the early 1950s recalled:

 

“I listened to that woman for four hours and she had my hair standing on end. Everything she said has been fulfilled to the letter. You would think she was the world’s greatest prophet, but she was no prophet. She was merely exposing the step-by-step battle plan of Communist subversion of the Catholic Church. She explained that of all the world’s religions, the Catholic Church was the only one feared by the Communists, for it was its only effective opponent. The whole idea was to destroy, not the institution of the Church, but rather the Faith of the people, and even use the institution of the Church, if possible, to destroy the Faith through the promotion of a pseudo-religion: something that resembled Catholicism but was not the real thing. Once the Faith was destroyed, she explained that there would be a guilt complex introduced into the Church…. to label the ‘Church of the past’ as being oppressive, authoritarian, full of prejudices, arrogant in claiming to be the sole possessor of truth, and responsible for the divisions of religious bodies throughout the centuries. This would be necessary in order to shame Church leaders into an ‘openness to the world,’ and to a more flexible attitude toward all religions and philosophies. The Communists would then exploit this openness in order to undermine the Church.”

 

This conspiracy has been confirmed time and again by Soviet defectors. Ex-KGB officer Anatoliy Golitsyn, who defected in 1961 and in 1984 forecast with 94% accuracy all the astonishing developments in the Communist Bloc since that time, confirmed several years ago that this “penetration of the Catholic and other churches” is part of the Party’s “general line [i.e. unchanged policy] in the struggle against religion.” Hundreds of files secreted to the West by former KGB archivist Vassili Mitrokhin and published in 1999 tell a similar tale, about the KGB cultivating the closest possible relationships with ‘progressive’ Catholics and financing their activities. One of the leftist organs identified was the small Italian Catholic press agency Adista, which for decades has promoted every imaginable postconciliar cause or “reform” and whose Director was named in The Mitrokhin Archive as a paid KGB agent. Interestingly, just prior to the Mitrokhin expose it was little Adista that ultra-Modernist Cardinal Martini utilised to diffuse his dissident rant at the 1999 European Synod, where, among other things, he called for a “new Council”.

 

What is often lost in all of this, however, is that Communism (along with the New Age movement) is simply a chief tool of Freemasonry; it’s policy of Church infiltration just an extension of the Masonic plan clearly laid out in the Alta Vendita and other bona fide Masonic documents recognised by the Popes. Even experts like Anatoliy Golitsyn have failed to grasp this point. In The Perestroika Deception (1996), his collection of very accurate analyses and forecasts submitted to the CIA during the period 1985-95, he hints at a controlling force behind Soviet Communism but lacks “the facilities to study how it might be operating” under cover of some “front” organisation. At the same time he complains that despite public plaudits for the accuracy of his forecasts, Western leaders have regularly ignored his warnings. He fails to see that having financed and nurtured Russian Communism from its inception, the elite Freemasons (in symbiotic alliance with transnationalist billionaires who shape world affairs for more prosaic reasons of power and profit) will not always allow a free hand to the likes of Bill Clinton, who himself attributes “a lot of breaks” in his life to his forty year membership of the Masonic Order of De Molay.

 

There are, of course, logistically implausible and just plain silly conspiracy theories. Yet, as the widespread homosexual infiltration of the postconciliar Church attests, the idea that evil men never seek each other out to work together is sillier still. Moreover, the insistence of liberal propagandists that there is no Masonic conspiracy (aided and abetted by fellow-travellers like themselves) is doubtless the greatest conspiracy of all. As E. Michael Jones explains in his dissection of one such propaganda exercise, by distorting and misrepresenting primary historical sources – like ex-Mason Abbe de Barruel, who wrote in the late eighteenth century that “the object of their [Masonic] conspiracy is to overturn every altar where Christ is adored” – the liberal Establishment seeks to protect and maintain at all costs the nihilistic spirit of the Enlightenment, which Masonic legacy underpins that dissolute and crumbling artifice we call Modernity.

 

As so many of our Shepherds have themselves bowed to the insidious forces of the Enlightenment and embraced Modernity, it might be said that all these ruminations are now superfluous; that with the secular liberal mindset so entrenched within the Church the whole infiltration/subversion thesis has become purely academic. Nonetheless, Catholics especially should know more about all of this; about how to distinguish Masons-and-Reds-under-the-bed ‘conspiracies’ from the real thing. And since the bishops are not about to alert them or explain the difference, this edition, though unsettling for some, will fill a gap.

Manning Johnson, a former Communist Party official and author of “Color, Communism and Common Sense” testified in 1953 to the House un-American Activities Committee regarding the infiltration of the Catholic Church:

“Once the tactic of infiltration of religious organizations was set by the Kremlin … the Communists discovered that the destruction of religion could proceed much faster through infiltration of the (Catholic) Church by Communists operating within the Church itself. The Communist leadership in the United States realized that the infiltration tactic in this country would have to adapt itself to American conditions (Europe also had its cells) and the religious make-up peculiar to this country. In the earliest stages it was determined that with only small forces available to them, it would be necessary to concentrate Communist agents in the seminaries. The practical conclusion drawn by the Red leaders was that these institutions would make it possible for a small Communist minority to influence the ideology of future clergymen in the paths conducive to Communist purposes This policy of infiltrating seminaries was successful beyond even our communist expectations.”

 

THE PONTIFFS vs. THE LODGE

 

“The papal condemnations of Freemasonry are so severe and sweeping in their tenor as to be quite unique in the history of Church legislation. During the last two centuries Freemasonry has been expressly anathematized by at least ten different Popes and condemned directly or indirectly by almost every Pontiff that sat on the Chair of St. Peter.”

 

“The Popes charge the Freemasons with occult criminal activities, with ‘shameful deeds’, with worshipping satan himself (a charge which is hinted at in some Papal documents), with infamy, blasphemy, sacrilege and the most abominable heresies against the State, with anarchical and revolutionary principles and with favouring and promoting what is now called Bolshevism; with corrupting and perverting the minds of youth; with shameful hypocrisy and lying, by means of which Freemasons strive to hide their wickedness under a cloak of probity and respectability, while in reality they are the very ‘synagogue of satan’, whose direct aim and object is the complete destruction of Christianity.”

Deliverance Prayers from Demons and Devils

Prayers for Deliverance from Father Amorth

Prayer Against Malefice [from the Greek Ritual]

Kyrie eleison. God, our Lord, King of ages, All-powerful and All-mighty, You Who made everything and Who transform everything simply by Your will. You Who in Babylon changed into dew the flames of the ‘seven-times hotter’ furnace and protected and saved the three holy children. You are the doctor and the physician of our soul. You are the salvation of those who turn to You. We beseech You to make powerless, banish, and drive out every diabolic power, presence, and machination; every evil influence, malefice, or evil eye and all evil actions aimed against Your servant [name of person/s]. Where there is envy and malice, give us an abundance of goodness, endurance, victory, and charity. O Lord, You Who love man, we beg You to reach out Your powerful hands and Your most high and mighty arms and send the angel of peace over us, to protect us, body and soul. May he keep at bay and vanquish every evil power, every poison or malice invoked against us by corrupt and envious people. Then, under the protection of Your authority may we sing, in gratitude, ‘The Lord is my salvation; whom should I fear? I will not fear evil because You are with me, my God, my strength, my powerful Lord, Lord of peace, Father of all ages.”

Anima Christi

Soul of Christ, sanctify me; Body of Christ, save me; Blood of Christ, inebriate me; Water from the side of Christ, wash me; Passion of Christ, strengthen me; O good Jesus, hear me; within Thy wounds, hide me; let me never be separated from Thee; from the evil one, deliver me; at the hour of my death, call me and bid me come to Thee, that with Thy saints, I may praise Thee forever and ever. Amen.

Prayer against Evil

Spirit of our God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, Most Holy Trinity, Immaculate Virgin Mary, angels, archangels, and saints of heaven descend upon me. Please purify me, Lord, mold me, fill me with yourself, and use me. Banish all the forces of evil from me; destroy them, vanquish them so that I can be healthy and do good deeds.

Banish from me all spells, witchcraft, black magic, demonic assignments, malefice, ties, maledictions and the evil eye; diabolic infestations, oppressions, possessions; all that is evil and sinful; jealousy, perfidy, envy; physical, psychological, moral, spiritual and diabolical ailments; as well as all enticing spirits, deaf, dumb, blind, mute and sleeping spirits, new-age spirits, occult spirits, religious spirits, antichrist spirits, and any other spirits of death and darkness.  Burn all these evils in hell that they may never again touch me or any other creature in the entire world.

I command and bid all the powers who molest me—by the power of God Almighty, in the name of Jesus Christ our Savior—through the intercession of the Immaculate Virgin Mary—to leave me forever, and to be consigned into the everlasting hell, where they will be bound by Saint Michael the archangel, Saint Gabriel, Saint Raphael, our guardian angels, and where they will be crushed under the heel of the Immaculate Virgin Mary.   Amen.

Prayer for Inner Healing

Lord Jesus, You came to heal our wounded and troubled hearts. I beg You to heal the torments that cause anxiety in my heart; I beg You, in a particular way, to heal all who are the cause of sin. I beg You to come into my life and heal me of the psychological harms that struck me in my early years and from the injuries that they caused through my life.

Lord Jesus, You know my burdens. I lay them all on Your Good Shepherd’s Heart. I beseech You–by the merits of the great, open wound in Your heart-to heal the small wounds that reside in mine. Heal the pain of my memories, so that nothing that has happened to me will cause me to remain in pain and anguish, filled with anxiety.

Heal, O Lord, all those wounds that have been the cause of all the evil that is rooted in my life. I want to forgive all those who have offended me. Look to those inner sores that make me unable to forgive. You Who came to forgive the afflicted of heart, please, heal my own heart.

Heal, my Lord Jesus, those intimate wounds that cause me physical illness. I offer You my heart. Accept it, Lord, purify it and give me the sentiments of Your Divine Heart. Help me to be meek and humble.

Heal me, O Lord, from the pain caused by the death of my loved ones, which is oppressing me. Grant me to regain peace and joy in the knowledge that You are the Resurrection and the Life. Make me an authentic witness to Your Resurrection, Your victory over sin and death, Your living presence among us. Amen.
Prayer for Deliverance

My Lord, you are all powerful, you are God, you are Father. We beg you through the intercession and help of the archangels Michael, Raphael and Gabriel, for the deliverance of our brothers and sisters who are enslaved by the evil one.   All saints of Heaven, come to our aid.

An Old Evil ; A New One World Religion

Saint Paul writes in

2 Thessalonians 2:11-17

the following:

NLT – “For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie” and (NAS version added  for clarification) “For this reason God will send upon them a deluding influence so that they will believe what is false,.

All Biblical scholars acknowledge that there will be a great deception in the End Times (the apocalypse). The question we must ask ourselves is, what deception could be so great as to deceive the elect? Matthew 24:24 states: “For false messiahs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect.”

To pursue this in a logical fashion we must follow the example of more intelligent and learned minds that went before us. Biblical scholars teach that we must unlock the meanings of eschatological prophecy by contrasting them with earlier, similar writings and prophecies made from other Holy men who were directed by God. For example, The book of revelation is often contrasted with the writings of the prophets Daniel and Ezekiel.

So, in like fashion, I will provide evidence for my conclusions based on the writings of the past. How will the great apostasy deceive so many people, that even the elect themselves might be tempted (But through the grace of God never fall victim) to fall for the deception? We must look to the old heresies and pagan gods of the past to unlock the secrets of the future. To this point, I present The Cult of Cybele

artemis1

Cybele

Cybele the Phrygian Fertility Goddess, Great Mother, Dindymene, Agdistis, Kubaba

If you click the link I provided above, you will see that I am not the only one who has made the connection between the demon of Cybele, (meaning “Mother of the Mountain” (Kubileya) in Phrygian), her son Attis and the great deception. The goal of the New world religion will be to blur the lines between genders and eradicate the male and female identities until BOTH are female / gender neutral. You may see this as the homosexual and transsexual agendas, alive and well in modern day culture. A student of history might stop me here and point out that the cults of cybele and attis were well known for their orgies and madness. This is where a careful study of Montanism and the link to the new testament comes into play. I will elaborate more on this later but for now let’s read about the history of this cult.

During the second Punic War, Hannibal was having much success subduing towns and villages in Italy and was approaching Rome. The Senate consulted the Sybilline Books and learned that, should a foreign enemy invade Italy, he could be deterred only if the worship of the “Mother of Mount Ida” were brought to Rome.
Always ones to hedge their bets, the Romans sent a delegation to the oracle at Delphi. A treaty was made with Philip V of Macedon and he permitted the Romans to bring back to Rome both the statue and a black meteorite that personified the divine Cybele.”

I find it fascinating that the personification of this demon came in the form of a black meteorite. The KAABA, the supposed resting place / house of God from the Islamic religion, in the city Mecca, is also made of a black meteorite. (Note: Wikipedia can be edited by ANYONE, hence the note therein that the origin of the stone being a black meteorite is “uncertain”. This is disinfo.)

Is there a connection? Well I will leave that to the more conspiratorial minded readers among us to decide. It’s worth noting however the similarities and stark fanaticism  between the two ancient religions are very well documented. A fanatical follower of the demon Cybele named Cathryn Platine on her website states that “The Cybele CULT was the first of the mystery religions.” This quote is paraphrased by me not only because she shows too much reverence to the demon, but because she also threatens to sue anyone who infringes upon her copyright claims. Quite telling of her fanatical mindset.

Another source states the following: (Conspiracy minded note: the end of the aforementioned URL: aa110999Cybele.htm has a reverse 666 placed within it as a subliminal mark of the beast)

Cybele in Rome

When the Second Punic War appeared to be going against the Romans, they consulted their chief oracular tool, the Sibylline Books, which told them that they needed the Great Mother at Rome if they wanted Hannibal to leave the peninsula. In 204, a black stone was shipped from Phrygia to Ostia and brought to Rome where it was worshiped as the Great Mother or Cybele and especially celebrated at the Ludi Megalenses.

The modern day, false apparition of medjugorje has an almost identical synapse and tone in regards to this ancient demon’s supposed messages. See here how she is quoted when speaking to this pagan king:

…following the instructions of the Sibyl at Cumae and the Oracle at Delphi. It is said that when the king at first refused the favour to the Roman envoys, the voice of the goddess herself was heard saying these prophetic words:

“It was my own will that they should send for me … let me go, it is my wish. Rome is a place meet to be the resort of every god.”

Contrast this with the following heretical message from Medjugorje:

“Before God all the faiths are identical.  God governs them like a king in his kingdom.”

But let us get to the meat of the matter. What was this cult all about?

Cybele’s religion was a bloody cult that required its priests and priestesses as well as followers to cut themselves during some rituals. The cult was a mystery religion, which meant that it’s inner secrets and practices were revealed to initiates only. The priests castrated themselves at their initiation; there was wild music, chanting, and frenzied dancing. Cybele’s retinue included many priestesses, including Amazonian, transgendered female priests as well as traditional masculine functionaries such as the dendrophori (tree-bearer) and cannophori (reed-bearer), and transgendered males known as the Gallae.

During the Republic and early Empire, festival days in March and April were celebrated with eunuchs preceding the goddess through the streets, banging cymbals and drums, wearing bright attire and heavy jewelry, their hair long and ‘greased’.

Priests and priestesses were segregated, their activities confined to their temples, and Roman citizens were not allowed to walk in procession with them. Neither Roman citizens nor their slaves were allowed to become priests or priestess in the cult. No native-born Roman citizen was to be allowed to dress in bright colors, beg for alms, walk the streets with flute players or worship the goddess in ‘wild Phrygian ceremonies’.

Attis was worshipped as the god of vegetation and fertility and was seen as consort of Cybele.

At its peek, the Cult of Cybele was rivaled only by that of Isis, and there were temples in all provinces of the Empire.

Cybele was a wife and consort of Attis, another  Phrygian god, who also can be seen as her son. Attis was the god of vegetation and fertility. Cybele was a friend of all. She fell in love with prince Attis, but their love-story was tragic. The intense love of the divine Cybele was too much for the mortal prince, and he went mad, castrated himself and died.

“In their very temples one may see scandalous performances, accompanied by the moaning of the throng: men letting themselves be handled as women, and flaunting with boastful ostentatiousness this ignominy of their impure and unchaste bodies. They parade their misdeeds in the public eye. … Next, being thus divorced from masculinity, they get intoxicated with the music of flutes and invoke their goddess to fill them with an unholy spirit so that they can ostensibly predict the future to fools. What sort of monstrous and unnatural thing is all this? They say they are not men, and indeed they aren’t; they want to pass as women.” [Firmicus: “The Error of Pagan Religions” 4.2]

Following the legend of the self emasculation of Attis, came the gallic practice of of self emasculation. There is significant evidence that males made themselves into eunuchs and that it was an essential aspect to their religion. Such ministerial eunuchism has been a common practice in many goddess rituals throughout history. The act of self emasculation had several purposes, one of which was that it helped the gallus transcend gender altogether. This belief was shared with one faction of the Gnostic movement, the Naassenes, as exemplified in the following text:

 “When you make the male and female one and the same, so that the male not be male nor the female …. then you will enter the Kingdom.” [W. Roscoe, “Priests of the Goddess: Gender Transgression in Ancient Religion.” History of Religions 35 (1996)]

So we see a very old evil displayed before us. How did this crafty old demon, this succubi if you will, decide to turn her old deranged gallic rituals of transgender and madness into a new-world religion? For this we must turn our attention to the early-Church heresy of :

Montanism

The sect was founded by a prophet, Montanus, and two prophetesses, Maximilla and Prisca, sometimes called Priscilla.

Montanus was a recent convert when he first began to prophesy in the village of Ardabau in Phrygia. He is said by Saint Jerome to have been previously a priest of Cybele. (The source dissembles this conclusion by saying that St. Jerome did not likely say this, but they have no evidence to support their conjectures. Montanus is clearly influenced by the demons which entered into him from the gallic ceremonies {Possession})

The same prophetic gift was believed to have descended also upon his two companions, the prophetesses Maximilla and Prisca or Priscilla. Their headquarters were in the village of Pepuza. The anonymous opponent of the sect describes the method of prophecy (Eusebius, V, xvii, 2-3): first the prophet appears distraught with terror (en parekstasei), then follows quiet (adeia kai aphobia, fearlessness); beginning by studied vacancy of thought or passivity of intellect (ekousios amathia), he is seized by an uncontrollable madness (akousios mania psyches). The prophets did not speak as messengers of God: “Thus saith the Lord,” but described themselves as possessed by God and spoke in His Person. “I am the Father, the Word, and the Paraclete,” said Montanus (Didymus, “De Trin.”, III, xli); and again: “I am the Lord God omnipotent, who have descended into to man”, and “neither an angel, nor an ambassador, but I, the Lord, the Father, am come” (Epiphanius, “Hær.”, xlviii, 11). And Maximilla said: “Hear not me, but hear Christ” (ibid.); and: “I am driven off from among the sheep like a wolf [that is, a false prophet–cf. Matthew 7:15]; I am not a wolf, but I am speech, and spirit, and power.” This possession by a spirit, which spoke while the prophet was incapable of resisting, is described by the spirit of Montanus: “Behold the man is like a lyre, and I dart like the plectrum. The man sleeps, and I am awake” (Epiphanius, “Hær.”, xlviii, 4). We hear of no false doctrines at first. The Paraclete ordered a few fasts and abstinences; the latter were strict xerophagioe, but only for two weeks in the year, and even then the Saturdays and Sundays did not count (Tertullian, “De jej.”, xv). Not only was virginity strongly recommended (as always by the Church), but second marriages were disapproved. Chastity was declared by Priscilla to be a preparation for ecstasy: “The holy [chaste] minister knows how to minister holiness. For those who purify their hearts [reading purificantes enim corda, by conjecture for purificantia enim concordal] both see visions, and placing their head downwards (!) also hear manifest voices, as saving as they are secret” (Tertullian, “Exhort.” X, in one manuscript). It was rumored, however, that Priscilla had been married, and had left her husband. Martyrdom was valued so highly that flight from persecution was disapproved, and so was the buying off of punishment. “You are made an outlaw?” said Montanus, “it is good for you. For he who is not outlawed among men is outlawed in the Lord. Be not confounded. It is justice which hales you in public. Why are you confounded, when you are sowing praise? Power comes, when you are stared at by men.” And again: “Do not desire to depart this life in beds, in miscarriages, in soft fevers, but in martyrdoms, that He who suffered for you may be glorified” (Tertullian, “De fuga”, ix; cf. “De anima”, lv). Tertullian says: “Those who receive the Paraclete, know neither to flee persecution nor to bribe” (De fuga, 14), but he is unable to cite any formal prohibition by Montanus.

Let us concentrate on a few very relevant passages taken from above. These heretics spoke of Christ but bore a very NEW-AGE philosophy (And theosophic as well I might add) in their discourse:

The prophets did not speak as messengers of God: “Thus saith the Lord,” but described themselves as possessed by God and spoke in His Person. “I am the Father, the Word, and the Paraclete,” said Montanus. “I am the Lord God omnipotent, who have descended into to man”

They were God himself?  Yet they subdued and seduced many Christians with their talk of chastity and purity:

Chastity was declared by Priscilla to be a preparation for ecstasy: “The holy [chaste] minister knows how to minister holiness. For those who purify their hearts –“

The next part of the quote cements the notion that these people were possessed of a legion of demons:

“–both see visions, and placing their head downwards also hear manifest voices, as saving as they are secret

And finally, the kicker which references Gnostic heresies

“The spirits of the prophets are subject to the prophets.” Montanus declared: “The Lord hath sent me as the chooser, the revealer, the interpreter of this labor, this promise, and this covenant, being forced, willingly or unwillingly, to learn the gnosis of God.”

Thus the female demon, masquerading as a spirit of God found a new way to win converts over to her religion. I believe that this Heresy and cult will be “reborn” as it were in the end times. This supposed mother Goddess, this demon under the false title of Magna Mater is a tool of satan who will be called forth to lead many faithful away from the glory of Our Lord Jesus Christ. We have seen that in the past, they are not afraid to blaspheme the Lord Jesus and his holy saints at every opportunity while masquerading their efforts to subdue the world under the mask of Christianity.

For the sake of brevity I will end this post here. I encourage you however, faithful reader, to research the history of Montanism and put the pieces of the puzzle together for yourself. Anyone can plainly see how the contemptible heresy of referring to Our Lord God, the Creator, better known as THE FATHER, as a female deity, has been promulgated in modern times just as it was in Cybele and Montanus’s day.

Look at the movie “a very merry Muppet Christmas Movie” which uses Whoopie Goldberg, to represent GOD! This is a foul HERESY! A children’s movie designed to warp the minds of young children promulgating the heresies of ancient Rome and early Christianity is a true sacrilege!

But enough …I have said enough. God bless you all, and please be wary of any new-age religious rhetoric that you come across. Always keep in mind this quote from Acts 4:12…

“Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.”!
