Vatican Breach of Church Law Speaks of a Diabolical Force in Rome
David Martin | The Daily Knight
Back around Vatican II, the enemies of the Faith began infiltrating the Church with the idea that Jesus was a revolutionary who “hated the establishment” and who “had no use for churches” but who came to dispense with rules and bring us ‘peace and joy.’
Unfortunately, we see this pacifist thinking reflected in so many sermons today, especially those of Pope Francis who habitually casts aside rules and accuses the keepers of Christ’s law of being “rigid” while he and his Vatican now implement all manner of globalist, feminist, and LGBTQ political agenda that have reduced the Holy City to a hell-hole of heresy.
What Francis needs to remember is that the laws and doctrines of Christ are set in stone and do not change. Nor can our observance of the law be relaxed to meet the times but must be observed strictly. What this means, among other things, is that Catholics may not divorce, engage in adultery, use birth-control, or miss Mass on the Lord’s Day.
Tagging faithful Catholics as “rigid” is just cheap political talk to try to instill disregard for God and his Laws. It is Lucifer who promotes the breaking of the Commandments and he will use all his craft to try to instill rebellion to the rule. This deception is being executed today through a fallen body of bishops under Francis.
Christ Never Broke The Rules
To encourage this breaking of rules, they’ll cite how Jesus “broke the Sabbath” by curing on that day, but Jesus was not breaking the Sabbath because God had never established a rule that one could not be cured on the Sabbath. When Christ told the people that it was permitted to cure and do good on the Sabbath (Matthew 12:12) he was making official what already was the case, namely, that it was perfectly licit and appropriate to do this. That was God’s design from the beginning. It was the envious Jews who had perverted the Mosaic Law by saying that one couldn’t be cured on the Sabbath. That was their invention, not God’s.
We read in St. John how on the Sabbath the ill and infirm would gather around a miraculous pond having five porches in which “lay a great multitude of sick, of blind, of lame, of withered; waiting for the moving of the water.” (John 5: 3)
The evangelist continues:
“An angel of the Lord descended at certain times into the pond; and the water was moved. And he that went down first into the pond after the motion of the water, was made whole, of whatsoever infirmity he lay under. And there was a certain man there, that had been eight and thirty years under his infirmity.
“Him when Jesus had seen lying, and knew that he had been now a long time, he saith to him: Wilt thou be made whole? The infirm man answered him: Sir, I have no man, when the water is troubled, to put me into the pond. For whilst I am coming, another goeth down before me. Jesus saith to him: Arise, take up thy bed, and walk. And immediately the man was made whole: and he took up his bed, and walked. And it was the sabbath that day.” (John 5: 6-9)
Driven by Envy
The Jews then had a hissy fit because the man was healed, saying, “It is the sabbath; it is not lawful for thee to take up thy bed” (5: 10), but they were acting out of malice. If curing on the Sabbath had been against the Law of Moses the sick people would not have been there, nor would God have cured them, nor would the elders have allowed them to wait for a cure but would have forbidden their presence there. But as it stands, the people were cured on the Sabbath and the Jews tolerated it but when they learned that Jesus by his power and divinity had cured the man they flared up with anger and persecuted him, saying, ‘thou shalt not cure on the Sabbath!’ (5: 16)
No Dispensing of the Commandments
Needless to say, Christ never dispenses with his commandments. There is no such thing as a ‘licit dispensation of God’s law’ but only a dispensation of a particular course of action that is allowed by the law. For instance, God commands that we keep the Lord’s Day holy by attending Mass but the same God also says that if a person is seriously ill he can miss Mass on Sunday with no loss of God’s friendship. It’s all part of the same law, the law itself is not dispensed with.
The Way to Heaven is Rigid
Though Francis may find this hard, the way to Heaven in fact is very “rigid” and “narrow,” not broad and flexible. The incessant breaking of Church law today under the guise of mercy only testifies to a diabolical force in the Vatican and fulfills the Virgin Mary’s prophecy at La Salette: “Rome will lose the Faith and become the seat of Antichrist.” (1846)
“Strive to enter by the narrow gate; for many, I say to you, shall seek to enter, and shall not be able." (Luke 13:24) Herein we see that most Christians will not enter Heaven because their observance of the commandments is too lax and mixed with self-interest, i.e. aspirations for money, acclaim, pleasure, etc., which keep them from entering the Kingdom. Dispensing with God’s laws kills any chance to enter. Christ meant what he said when he told us, “How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life: and few there are that find it!” (Mt. 7:14)
In the very next verse he says:
“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” (Mt. 7:15) Of these quacks he says, “By their fruits you shall know them.” (Mt. 7:16)
A Warning Against Temptation
We have to be careful about the present occupant of the Chair of Peter because by derisively accusing traditional law-abiding Catholics of being ‘rigid without mercy’ he is tempting them to turn against the rigid way of Christ. He’s giving the Church a complex about the hard-gospel of Jesus Christ – the way of the cross.
Let’s face it, the way to the Kingdom is tough so with the world now on a collision course and worldwide reparation due for sin the flock should close its ears to all the pontifical rhetoric and focus on their eternal salvation, remembering the exhortation of St. Paul that we work out our salvation “with fear and trembling.” (Philippians 2:12)
