The gender issue in Lent 2019

March 14, 2019

Dear bishops, priests and faithful,

we have entered the Lenten season, the essence of which is repentance. Jesus says clearly, and His words apply to everyone, “Unless you repent, you will all perish!” And this is a very serious thing!

Not only the existence of Christianity but even the existence of the Czech nation is in store today. Neglecting what we ought to do is a serious sin. When speaking about the Last Judgment, Jesus uses harsh words, “And these will go away into everlasting punishment…” Why? “Whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for Me.”

The Parliament is currently working to implement a law enabling 12-year-old children to change their gender. These are crimes not only against God and His order but also against humanity. To be silent on them means to participate in the crime! What should the Church do? Avert the curse from the nation by showing true repentance and call down God’s blessing again. Without it, the fight against autogenocidal laws will remain ineffective!

The system of lies has been cunningly introduced in the Church through heresies by means of a method of ambiguous terms. The same method is now used in legislation to introduce gender laws.

One can perhaps justify the passivity of the faithful by the fact that the Catholic mentality is unable to distinguish between Church authority and God’s authority. This is what secret enemies of Christ and of the Church have exploited. However, one cannot justify that this passivity continues even after years when the fruits and the curse have become so visible that any sincere person can recognize it. The highest authority in the Church has been abused to set the whole Church structure against God, against the saving truths and against God’s order. The fruit is spiritual paralyzation and curse, which becomes manifest by a gradual loss of conscience and reason. Bishops and priests are obliged to confess on behalf of the entire Church: “We have sinned!” and to enter on the path of truth and repentance. Otherwise the process of self-destruction will not stop. What does true repentance consist in? The Apostle Peter said, “Separate yourselves” from the pharisaical spirit which crucified Jesus Christ!

As God’s prophet, Archbp. C. M. Viganò has pointed out the crimes in the Church structure and called for repentance and a revival process. What is the response? Deadly silence. In this situation, desperate efforts to advocate Francis who covers up heresies and crime is a sign of unity in rebellion against God and against the Spirit of truth. And this is a sin against the Holy Spirit.

Dear bishops, it is through your fault that Catholics are bound by the pharisaical spirit and kept in blindness. One must choose: Christ or Antichrist! Orthodox doctrine or heresies! Faithfulness to Peter or Francis!

Dear faithful, if you repent, you will also obtain the grace for the bishops and priests to feel grief at the state of the Church. And once they feel this grief, like the above-mentioned brave Archbishop, they will stop appealing in the Mass to unity with the invalid Pope who leads the Church and the nations to self-destruction.

If you, bishops and priests, passively continue in unity with the spirit which now occupies the Church structure, this spirit of apostasy keeps you within its boundaries and makes any good efforts of yours ineffective. Your efforts thus become mere evasive or pious phrases. May Archbp. Viganò and our Czech priest Prof. Piťha be an example to you today. Standing up for truth costs something. One risks much, or everything, but obtains eternal life. It is pointless saying that we must fight for truth if we are not willing to separate ourselves from lies. We would end up like Pilate. Eventually, he condemned Christ.

The people who are in the structure, which is under the sway of lies and curse by reason of heresies, are forced to – as the Lord Jesus said, “close their eyes, lest they should see, close their ears, lest they should hear, and harden their hearts, lest they should turn, and their sins be forgiven them.” (cf. Mk 4:12)

Appealing to Francis or to something he wrote against the gender issue in Amoris Laetitia or elsewhere is hypocrisy. He uses such statements just to have an alibi, but his works show the opposite. This is clear even to a sensible atheist. Contemporary religious clericalism covering up heresies, apostasy and immorality is worse than atheism, though both are bad.

Today, Catholics are neither the salt nor the light to this world but rather a stumbling block. They are taught to avoid the most essential thing, without which no one can be saved, and that is repentance. Why are they doing it? There was no one to tell them about the essence of Christianity, namely, “Deny yourself, take up your cross, and follow Me.” It is a mystery of the old self being crucified with Christ (Gal 2:20; Rom 6:6). Catholicism, built just on the spirit of religious phrases and hypocritical clericalism, does not bear the fruit of repentance and salvation.

Thousand-strong anti-gender and pro-family demonstrations were held on Saturdays and Sundays for several months in Ukraine last year. They were organized by both the Protestants and the Orthodox in different towns. What have the Catholics in the Czech Republic done against the gender ideology of death? Hats off to a handful of pilgrims to Hostýn and Velehrad. But what about the others?

These days, the Parliament has debated the right to a gender change from the age of 12. On 26 March, it will discuss the law on so-called same-sex marriages again. Pirates and feminists are trying to break into the Parliament building and influence the atmosphere, while their supporters are standing outside with banners. The Catholics, however, are sitting at home and waiting till the cows come home. What support can an MP expect if he sees that the Catholic Church is totally indifferent to the introduction of crime? We ask: Are you able to hold a peaceful demonstration outside the Parliament building at least on 26 March, and thus to support the MPs who defend Christian values?

Recover from delirium and come back to the reality! This spirit of paralyzation and clericalism is also maintained by pious phrases in Radio Proglas, Katolický týdeník, TV Noe and, unfortunately, in the CBK (CBC) too. All must repent! This is the only way to save the nation and to restore the Church! However, every Catholic Christian must start with repentance even if the Church structure will continue to boycott the truth.

Dear brothers and sisters, you know well that the grace of repentance can only be obtained by prayer. Therefore, let everyone make a commitment during Lent to devote one hour daily to interior prayer between 8 and 9 p.m. At 9 p.m., priests give their blessing. It would be ideal if the family, or at least two members of the family, can pray together. You can pray traditional prayers, such as the Rosary or the Stations of the Cross.

True prayer must result in works. For example, write a letter to an MP to encourage him in the fight for the protection of children and preservation of the family. But it is also necessary, after the example of Ukraine, to rise, take to the streets and stand outside the Parliament building. If you make these little steps of faith, God will work a miracle: He will save us from the planned autogenocide of the nation and the Church! Be aware of your responsibility for yourselves as well as for the future generation!

Questions of truth for a theologian:

1) Is the Church to blame for the invasion of gender ideology?

2) Does the Church nowadays proclaim heresies that deny the essential truths of Christianity? Yes or no?

3) Considering manifest heresies, is Francis a valid or invalid Pope?

4) Did Vatican II open the door to the Spirit of truth and repentance or to the spirit of the world through aggiornamento? Today we reap the fruits of Vatican II. Yes or no?

5) Were the conciliar and post-conciliar Popes obliged to fight the spreading heresies of neo-Modernism and syncretism or not?

6) Is the canonization of these Popes by Francis valid or invalid?

Questions of truth for every Christian:

7) Who is Christ to you? Does He have the first place in your life? Do you find time to talk to Him in interior prayer, or do you devote hours to Web surfing, TV, modern music, and the vanities of the world?

8) Are you willing to stand up against the whole Antichrist’s system in the Church and in the world for the salvation of your soul and for the sake of Jesus Christ?

9) Are you willing to put a definite stop to religious phrases and self-deception in your life?

10) Do you think seriously of death, God’s judgment and eternity? Or are these just pious terms for you? Where would you be today, at this very moment, if God called you away?

Conclusion:

The restoration of the Church must begin from you, whether you are a simple believer, a priest, a religious or a bishop!

Let us ask an existential question: What would happen if the CBC announced to the Vatican and to the whole Catholic world that they no longer recognize Francis as the rightful successor of the Apostle Peter, separate themselves from the curse and no longer mention his name in the Mass?

Answer: It would be a shock. But we have got used to shocks. Francis and various heretics in the highest places shock us regularly. We have become accustomed to shocks from Germany, such as the proposal to abolish the papacy (Card. Lehmann); Card. Kasper shocks us in many ways and so does Archbp. Zollitsch who says that Christ did not die for our sins; and we have recently been shocked by Card. Marx who promotes homosexual weddings in Catholic churches. They fear neither people nor God! And we, Czech people, should fear to take a small step in an attempt to restore the Church and the papacy? Whom and what are we afraid of? People or God? We are afraid of our own shadow! (St. Catherine of Siena)

What will be the consequences of this step of separation from the invalid Pope? Czech Catholics will set an example of a true renewal of the Church to the whole world. Will we use this chance which God is giving us?
