Open Letter to President Trump: Immigration

Aug 11, 2017 — David Martin

Mr. President:

Concerning the new immigration bill to be deliberated by Congress when it returns from its August recess, it should be emphasized that immigration into the U.S. is a privilege, not a right. In the same way a stranger has no right to walk into somebody’s house without permission, so a foreigner has no right walking into America without permission from the government. This permission to migrants should be based most especially on evidence that they truly honor and love America.

The Revolution of Vatican II was Misinterpreted?

Jul 25, 2017 — David Martin

It is often voiced by conservatives disheartened by the changes in the Catholic Church that Vatican II was a good council, but that it was misinterpreted. If these good people were better informed as to what took place at the Council, they would never say any such thing. Though Vatican II started with the best resolves, it was hijacked in the opening session by rebel bishops because the pope had planned the Council without their advice and against their designs.

We gather that Cardinal Tisserant, the key draftsman of the 1962 Moscow-Vatican Treaty who presided at the opening session, was part of this plot to usurp the Vatican Council. According to Jean Guitton, the famous French academic, Tisserant had showed him a painting of himself and six others, and told him, “This picture is historic, or rather, symbolic. It shows the meeting we had before the opening of the Council when we decided to block the first session by refusing to accept the tyrannical rules laid down by John XXIII.” (Vatican II in the Dock, 2003)

Notorious Abortionist to Speak at Catholic Church in Italy

Jul 21, 2017 — David Martin

Abortionist Emma Bonino is proud of the 6,000,000 babies she is directly or indirectly responsible for killing since 1968, and remains an avid abortionist to this day. This is not to mention her continued rant as a political activist to promote divorce, homosexuality, transgenderism, gay-marriage, the abolition of the armed forces, the disbanding of NATO, the liberalization of porn laws, mandatory sex education, and the Communist insurgence of the west under the guise of immigration. No repentance whatsoever.

Yet, Pope Francis in 2016 told an interviewer for the Corriere della Sera that Bonino was “among the great ones of Italy,” and defended her on the grounds that she “thinks very differently from us.” He recommended “patience,” saying, “You have to look at people, what they do.”

Benedict XVI: The Barque of Peter is Sinking

Jul 19, 2017 — David Martin

The Church continues to lament the passing of Cardinal Meisner of Cologne, who was an outspoken opponent of Amoris Laetita which breaks with tradition by allowing divorced and civilly remarried people to receive Communion. Surprisingly, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI sent a letter of tribute to be read at Meisner’s funeral on July 15. In the letter he says:

“What particularly impressed me from my last conversations with the now passed Cardinal was the relaxed cheerfulness, the inner joy and the confidence at which he had arrived. We know that this passionate shepherd and pastor found it difficult to leave his post, especially at a time in which the Church stands in particularly pressing need of convincing shepherds who can resist the dictatorship of the spirit of the age and who live and think the faith with determination. However, what moved me all the more was that, in this last period of his life, he learned to let go and to live out of a deep conviction that the Lord does not abandon His Church, even if the boat has taken on so much water as to be on the verge of capsizing.”

Open Letter to President Trump

May 27, 2017 — David Martin

Mr. President:

With all due respect for the person of Pope Francis and the Petrine Office he holds, we urge you not to read the encyclical letter Laudato Si given to you by the pope during your recent Vatican visit, as it is a masterpiece of New Age deception which advocates a borderless one-world government under the governance of a “world political authority.” Its whole point is to place man in touch with his environment. It builds its bridges to the planet, not to Almighty God, and as such, cannot be instrumental in advancing world peace. 

The encyclical was actually written by the pope’s ghost writers Archbishop Victor Manuel Fernandez Guttierrez and Bishop Mario Toso for the purpose of spearheading the U.N. “Sustainable Development Goals” of making “Mother Earth” a safer place through population control (abortion). The encyclical’s vehement fight against man-made climate change has earned it enthusiastic acclaim from the very people [globalists] that have been battling you since the day you announced you were running for president.

Francis: Keepers of Doctrine are Fanatics

May 24, 2017 — David Martin

Solicitous concern over the purity of doctrine reflects the truest love of God and neighbor, since doctrine, as with any of the Ten Commandments, is not an ideal that may be watered down or dismissed to suit ones fancy, but an eternal command set in stone for man’s sanctification. In the same way a healthcare expert does not tolerate poison in the diet, so a true priest will never tolerate poison in the spiritual diet. It has to be pure, which means it has to be clear, without which it is poison.

But Pope Francis has now come out and slammed conservative Catholics who earnestly maintain that purity of doctrine be preserved. Concerning such people, the pope said in his Friday morning homily: “They are fanatics about things that are not clear, such as these fanatics who go about there, sowing discord in order to divide the Christian community.”

Attention President Trump:  May 24 Meeting with Pope Francis

May 16, 2017 — David Martin

Mr. President:

If part of your objective in meeting with the pope next week is to diplomatically establish common ground in such a way that he will appreciate your immigration policy and see you as an advocate of world peace, express your appreciation of how the the Catholic Church from the very beginning has always built a wall against moral corruption and built its bridge to Almighty God. Point out how this has always proved to be the path to true peace and how you are simply applying this in a political way. Thereby you will show respect for the Church he heads while providing a little nudge for him to return to the tradition of the Faith from which he has been dissenting.

Pope Planning Pentecostal Celebration with Charismatics

May 5, 2017 — David Martin

Pope Francis has invited thousands of Catholic “charismatics” and members of Pentecostal and Evangelical churches to Rome to celebrate Pentecost and mark the 50th anniversary of the so-called Catholic Charismatic Renewal.

Francis, who has a history of participating in charismatic-interfaith events, will lead a prayer vigil on June 3, the eve of Pentecost, at Rome’s Circus Maximus, and will offer Pentecost Mass the next morning in St. Peter’s Square.

The question is raised as to why Francis would entertain a sect that is manifestly errant and which the Church has already spoken against. In May 1969, Pope Paul VI publicly denounced “the illusion of a free and charismatic Christianity” which ‘‘does not build, but demolishes,” and deplored those who “have recourse to gratuitous charismatic suppositions in order to fill up the interior emptiness created by their own loss of confidence in the guidance of the Church.”

Priest Charged with Assault for Defending Eucharist during Traditional Latin Mass

Apr 23, 2017 — David Martin

This concerns a humble and holy priest from Brazil, Fr. Batista da Silva, who was accosted by a transgressor who maliciously disrupted his Ash Wednesday Mass while shouting obscenities against the priest, and who then proceeded to defile the Holy Eucharist after the priest mildly advised him that he would not be permitted to receive Communion in the hand as he demanded. After tripping and falling down through his own fury, parishioners were able to peaceably secure the man for the purpose of extracting the defiled Host from his hand, which was done successfully and without further incident. Their objective was to simply halt the altercation and defend the Holy Eucharist from sacrilege.

Criminal indictments have now been brought against Fr. Batista on the grounds that he incited violence against the man. It should be pointed out that Fr. Batista was offering the Latin Tridentine Mass, which explains the man’s hostility, since the Latin Mass is what enrages the devil’s fury more than anything else. This isn’t the first time the Latin Mass has incited the malice of the ancient serpent. Since when hasn’t it?

Lamentation of the Church during the 100th Anniversary of Fatima

Mar 20, 2017 — David Martin

O Church of Our Divine Saviour
Set up to be faithful and true,
Through the ages you were radiant with glory,
But what hast happened to you!

Your nuns have become foolish maidens,
Your priests are polluted with error,
Your prophets utter strange delusions
While the flock is led to despair.

Did Francis Formally Profess Heresy?

Mar 6, 2017 — David Martin

In an interview with Catholic World Report (CWR) in December 2016, Cardinal Raymond Burke, archbishop and patron of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, said that if a pope were to “formally profess heresy he would cease, by that act, to be the Pope.”

The cardinal was reiterating Church teaching, as expressed by famed canonist Franz Wernz in his Ius Canonicum: “In sum, it needs to be said clearly that a [publicly] heretical Roman Pontiff loses his power upon the very fact.” Burke stressed that he was “not saying that Pope Francis is in heresy,” but was simply pointing out that it “could happen” that a pope could formally profess heresy.

Francis Laments Hypocritical Catholics?

Feb 24, 2017 — David Martin

Pope Francis on Thursday suggested that it is better to be an atheist than to be a Catholic who leads a hypocritical double life. At his private morning Mass at his residence, he said, “How many times have we all heard people say ‘if that person is a Catholic, it is better to be an atheist’.”

It indeed would be better to be an atheist than to come to Mass every single day with the intention of changing the Church. Those who seek change and who are dissatisfied with tradition, i.e. the modernists, are the true hypocrites, because in the name of God they reject His Church, while seeking a new religion that incorporates heretics and homosexuals.

Was Jorge Bergoglio the Cause of St. Faustina’s Greatest Suffering?

Feb 20, 2017 — David Martin

On December 17, 1936, the renown mystic St. Faustina, known for her role in establishing the devotion to the Divine Mercy, penned two entries into her diary which warrant close examination today. Entries 823 and 824 appear to be closely related and occur chronologically without interruption. Without further ado, the first part of her statement [entry 823] is as follows.

“I have offered this day for priests. I have suffered more today than ever before, both interiorly and exteriorly. I did not know it was possible to suffer so much in one day. I tried to make a Holy Hour, in the course of which my spirit had a taste of the bitterness of the Garden of Gethsemane. I am fighting alone, supported by His arm, against all the difficulties that face me like unassailable walls. But I trust in the power of His name and I fear nothing.” — Diary of St. Faustina, 823

Francis Apparently not Happy with Roman Posters

Feb 14, 2017 — David Martin

Pope Francis seems to have taken offense over an anonymous poster campaign which called into question his mercy. On February 4, Romans woke up to more than 200 posters of a stern-faced pope plastered all over the city, with a caption that asks, “But where is your mercy?”

The unidentified posters accused Francis of having “ignored cardinals” and “decapitated the Order of Malta” — references to a bitter dispute between the order and the Vatican that benched a conservative cardinal.

But what would Jesus do about immigration?

Feb 6, 2017 — David Martin

This may appear as a cartoon, but it contains a dead serious message. No one gets to Heaven unless they obey God and pass the test.  As St. Theresa said, “Heaven is earned very hard.” As pilgrims upon earth, we are migrating as it were to our future home, but no one just walks through the Pearly Gates. There is much vetting to get in, and many are turned away.

“For many, I say to you, shall seek to enter, and shall not be able.” (Luke 13:24)
