Advent 2018, metanoia – orthodoxy

5 December 2018

Why is the present-day Church in such a deep crisis? Much of the blame for this falls on John XXIII’s aggiornamento and the postconciliar spirit.

What then should bishops, priests and religious do in Advent time, the time of repentance? They should separate from the spiritual poison of the aggiornamento and of the postconciliar spirit promoting heresies which destroy the essence of Christianity.

Currently, the renewal of baptismal vows concerns the following areas:

1) Contemporary heresies

In terms of faith, it is necessary to break with heresies which deny the most fundamental truths. It is necessary to create such conditions as to be able to identify heresies and to dissociate oneself from them. The truths of faith will thus shine brightly again. Furthermore, it is necessary to preach the full and living Word of God and to lead the believers to conversion and to the path of following Christ!

2) Syncretism with paganism

The Christian territories are undergoing a process of strong popularization of paganism. We witness the promotion of Oriental meditations (yoga, Zen…), various pagan philosophies, yin and yang and practices, martial arts connected with meditations, feng shui – superstitious house decoration with elephants, frogs, turtles, door wind chimes believed to welcome spirits.

Islamization of Christian territories is systematically programmed, the aim of which is the extinction of Christianity. It is done under the intensive cooperation of the Vatican. It is an organized jihad in the form of immigration. The conditions for Islamization were created by the Second Vatican Council’s document Nostra Aetate which contains a false statement saying that Christians and Muslims worship the same God. Yes, there is only one God, but He is God in three Persons. This God is not the same as Allah who is the highest (akbar) of the 360 pagan gods of Mecca. This Allah Akbar commands its followers to behead Christians and to force them into falling away from Christ.

3) Antimorality

Liberal theology relativizes God’s commandments and promotes the legalization of sodomy. The exhortation Amoris Laetitia introduces a subjective approach to God’s commandments, whereby it removes the awareness of sin and the need for repentance and destroys the universal moral principles. Christianity becomes tasteless salt and a stumbling block for the world.

4) Child stealing

Why are children stolen? It is the consequence of the legalization of sodomy. So-called same-sex couples, many of them being paedophiles, want children. This is the cruellest abuse of children stolen from their parents under the guise of so-called prevention of domestic violence. The stolen children are sexually abused and are a source of great enrichment for so-called foster families (child trafficking). The Vatican’s silence on and indifference to this child abuse means complicity in a crime against humanity! Christ’s verdict concerning this is as follows: “Whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for Me.” (Mt 25:45)

5) Occultism

In the second half of the 20th century, Europe and America saw an expansion of paganism. An inseparable part of paganism is the occult. Instead of rejecting it, the Vatican issued the conciliar declaration Nostra Aetate on a regard for pagan cults which offer sacrifices to demons and Satan. This is a sin against the First Commandment of the Decalogue. Warnings against pagan idolatry are found in many many places of the Scripture. Divination, magic, spiritualism and their manifold forms have penetrated the whole of Christianity after Vatican II. One can also mention the practices of yoga, Oriental meditations, Zen. The occult is a basis for various psychological methods, such as rebirthing, channelling (spiritualism), the false theory of reincarnation, sects like the Sri Chinmoy cult, Transcendental Meditation founded by Maharishi Mahesh Yogi, the Hare Krishna movement or satanic sects. The Church’s silence on paganism and occultism is unjustifiable.

Occult backgrounds are also behind horoscopes, dream books, biorhythm charts, numerology, talismans, miraculous plants, stones… Confused Catholics resort to the help of so-called energies, in fact, demons.

And what about so-called alternative medicine? It includes many forms that are associated with occultism, such as homeopathy, acupuncture, acupressure, Chinese massages, healing by so-called life magnetism, the Silva method, reiki…

6) Masonry, NWO

Before the Council, it was clear to every Catholic that a Catholic cannot be a Freemason. It carried the penalty of excommunication. Nor could one be a member of any club subsidiary to Masons (Lions, Rotary).

John Paul II approved a new Code of Canon Law by which he allowed Freemasons into the Church. Now they hold the highest positions in the Church’s administration. This is also the fruit of the Vatican II aggiornamento. That is why Islamization and gender ideology are promoted today not only by backstage elites but also by the Vatican.

7) Faith in Christ (orthodoxy)

Liberal bishops and priests are the biggest obstacle to the restoration of the Church. They do not permit it to happen. They do not enter the kingdom of God themselves and prevent others from entering (cf. Mt 23:13).

Archbishop Zollitsch has declared the greatest heresy, saying that Christ did not die for our sins but only out of solidarity with the suffering. Many theologians today do not believe in the historical and real resurrection of Jesus Christ. They mask their unbelief with phrases about eschatology, symbols, supra-historicity, or myths. But the truth of the faith is: Jesus is true God and true man; He died for our sins and truly rose from the dead, which is the evidence of His divinity.

8) The receiving of Jesus

Faith is based on a concrete step of receiving Jesus, i.e. entering into a personal relationship with Him. In the hour of death, theoretical or academic faith will not save anyone. Jesus died for my sins and delivered me from the slavery of the devil! (Acts 26:18) I have to accept this truth and put the Lord Jesus first in my list of priorities. Every honest bishop or priest must decide to follow Him like the Apostles and martyrs.

Jesus says to the Bishop of Laodicea: “Because you are neither cold nor hot, I will spit you out of My mouth!” (Apoc 3:15-17)

9) Testament from the cross

Jesus addressed His Mother from the cross with the word: “Woman”. The Mother of Jesus is the second Eve. Just as we have the genetic code of sin in us from Eve, so also we have to receive into our innermost being – “in sua” (eis ta idia) (Jn 19:27) – the grace of God given to Mary so that through her and the Holy Spirit we can be transformed into Christ. All the great saints had a deep devotion to the Virgin Mary. Stand by the cross, look into the eyes of Jesus as a true disciple and receive with faith a spiritual heart transplant through the words “Behold, your mother”, which is the fulfilment of the prophecy: “I will give you a new heart”. (Ez 36)

10) The receiving of the Holy Spirit

The Church was born through the descent of the Holy Spirit. Today, many theologians have expelled the Holy Spirit by heresies and replaced Him with the spirit of the world (aggiornamento). It is necessary to receive the Holy Spirit in fullness like the Apostles on the day of Pentecost. But that is still not enough. It is necessary to walk in the Holy Spirit after the example of the Apostles. This means to allow the Holy Spirit to transform us, like the Apostles, into Christ so that we follow Jesus even at the cost of physical death. Then we will be true witnesses (martyres), and not church managers or circus clowns in soutanes.

It would be worthwhile if the bishops and priests could publicly, best from the pulpit, renew their baptismal vows on any of the Advent Sundays.
