"The Holy Roman Church firmly believes, professes and preaches that all those who are outside the Catholic Church, not only pagans but also Jews or heretics and schismatics, cannot share in eternal life and will go into the everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels, unless they are joined to the Church before the end of their lives..."

(Pope Eugene IV, Council of Florence, Cantate Domino, 1441)



Why the Catholic Faith?

Because it is the only true Christian faith and is necessary for salvation. How do we know this is so? Because God incarnate, Jesus Christ assured his Apostle Peter that the gates of hell would not prevail against the Christian Church.


Letter to a faithul on the Greek Schismatics

St. Andrew - November 30, 2007

Dear M...;

What follows are just some random thoughts that occurred to me after our conversation. I would like to 'tweak' it and embellish it and improve it generally. But I know myself and if I do not send this to you as it is it will sit on my hard drive years after I'm buried. So, please accept it as is that is 'rough.' But I think you can appreciate the points made nevertheless and you can even embellish them yourself.

So the response of the simple soul, who cannot even read but seeks salvation, to the Greeks goes as below.

Referring to the Greeks:
Where is their Padre Pio? We have 79 stigmatists before him!!!
Where is their St. Anthony finding things for everyone?
Their Saint Thomas Aquinas

Or their St. Francis of Assisi who had well over 4,000 followers living with him in the woods within 5 years after he began to do so. There were tens of thousands in his order by the time he died and to this day there are many thousands. Not the least of which was the great

Saint Francis Paulo also a stigmatist. It was in a Church dedicated to him that in about 1840 the Catholic hating Jew Ratisboone was miraculous converted by an apparition of Our Lady which lasted only some 30 seconds!! She appeared as Our Lady on the Miraculous Medal. Which by the way has countless miracles associated with it. What do the Greeks have to compare!?

Where is their Saint Vincent Ferror, who converted some 3,000,000 including thousands of Jews. He lived 600 years after the Greeks left the Church.

Where is their St. Bernadette whose body is to this day as fresh as the day she died 100 years ago! There are 100's of deseased incorrupt Catholic saints. The Greeks have NONE!!

Where is their,
St. Ignatius
St. Francis Xavier, who converted some 60,000
St. Theresa sending flowers to everyone
St. Philip Nero whose rib cage broke from an expanded heart so filled with the love of God
St. Joseph Coopertino who flew so many times above the congregation at Mass that they had to hide him from the public.
St. Dominic who via Our Lady gave us the Rosary. This Rosary ended the Albegensiam heresy in France.

All of these were long after the Greeks left. And as you well know this is does not even scratch the surface of all of the saints and their miracles.

But also where is their Lourdes with thousands of cures many highly documented.

Their Guadalupe and its Tilma. It is an historical fact that that the Indians in Mexico were still worshiping Satan and offering human sacrifices to him in 1530. When Our Lady put her image in the tilma some 15,000,000 converted in just a few years. That is how Mexico became a Catholic nation. Where is the Greek tilma.

Where is the Greek Shroud of Turin?

Luciano, (Eucharist miracle plus 100's of others)

Their Sun dancing in the sky at Fatima, witnessed by 70,000 to100,000 people

THEY HAVE ABSOLUTLY NO VERIFIABLE MIRACLES!! Hence God is not with them.

Note the First 25 Popes were all martyrs, do the Greeks claim them or are they not saints? Do the Greeks accept them?! If so why not all Popes?

St. Augustine, was he a rejecter of the Papacy? Were the Fathers rejecters of the Popes. I remind you and others that the Greeks reject the very idea of a Pope, like the Protestants. This has nothing to do with whether or not he is infallible. They despise the very office. They then invent reasons why it is not from God. The scriptures are quite clear on this point. So the issue for the Greeks is the same as the issue for the Protestants. 'No Pope is going to tell me what to do!!!' This is the same issue as that of Lucifer. 'I will not serve!!' As for sophisticated arguments, Saint Michael with his incomprehensible (for us), intellect did not use sophisticated arguments against his rival Lucifer. Lucifer claimed, no doubt with great argumentation that he was as God and worthy therefore to be worshipped. He convinced millions of angels to do so. Saint Michaels argument and battle cry, was 'WHO IS AS GOD!?' What could be more simple?

Hence the Greeks use most sophisticated arguments to circumvent the most simple truth (s). Jesus Christ founded a Church and it is built upon the rock of Peter and it resides in Rome atop where this Peter is buried. It does not reside somewhere in Greece such as Athens.

And this Church has existed as a continuous chain up to this day with or without a reigning Pope. What makes one a member of this Catholic Church? A person properly baptized and believing in the exact same faith as the Apostles and under the Pope, should we have one. Jesus Christ promised the gates of Hell would not prevail over the Church, therefore the faithful. He did not promise it would always be large. Look how small it was when it began. Only 120 souls. But no matter how small, it rests within the faithful. And these faithful, must be of the same faith as the Apostles, believe in the Papacy, and that there will be a valid Pope again some day. Many can pooh-pooh this but these same would have pooh-poohed the idea prior to Vatican II that the Church would ever get into the state it finds itself today in just a few years after Vatican II. Even non believers would not have believed the Church could sink so low so fast. But today was prophesied. That in the end times all the faithful will know each other. That the Church will be in eclipse, meaning you can barely find it. This was PREDICTED!!! Not to mention Our Lords words, 'When the Son Of Man returns do you think He will find faith on the earth? And of course the prophecy of the great Apostasy!! Who can deny this is it. We are living through it now. The fact that we are living through at least two or more prophecies argues for our being the true Church, not against it.

Do not forget the Devil was given 100 years to destroy the true Church. Not the Greek Church the true Church. The devil already has the Greeks damned so he can leave them alone in their proud complacency.

So we have many 'slams' against this Church which Jesus Christ started. Where is the argument that is the PROOF, that this one true original Church was the Greek Church??!!

One thing this proves is that those 'Tennessee' men never made a true act of faith. Intellectually they accepted the arguments for Catholicism but in their hearts they were not believers. They, and even perhaps yourself need to make an act of faith . An act of faith is to believe in an unseen Dogma (truth) based upon less than undeniable proof because the one testifying to this truth is almighty God. Hence we believe in the real presence of the Eucharist only because God has told us it is there. We have other reasons to believe it but they are not conclusive. Therefore we can only have certitude of this teaching when we understand that God has taught it to us. How did God speak to us? He spoke through His Church, the teacher of men. When we recite the Creed we say, 'I believe IN the Holy Catholic Church'…. We do not say that we believe the Catholic Church but we believe IN it. This IN means we believe that God is in this Church and that He speaks through this Church. How do we know that God speaks through this one Church? By the manifestation of His presence in it. And that presence is proved by all of the thousands of miracles in it that only God can perform And it follows therefore that if there is only one true Church from which God speaks from then it is the only Church that has miracles proving His presence. If He worked miracles in other Churches then we could not know which is the one true Church in which He rests. Hence any miracle that another Church claims to have is a false miracle. YOU CAN VERIFY THAT! Ask your Greek friends for the documentation of their 'miracles.' Forget their silly sophistry about what someone said or believed at a council 1,500 years ago.

As for the charge that it is untenable not to have a Pope for many years? SAYS WHO!!?? And why?!

As for the 'principle' that only one member of the Godhead can send another person in it, again I ask, 'Says who!? and Why??!! What we know about the Trinity is revealed not determined by reason.

So the simple soul with eyes to see and ears to hear can know the true Church and save his soul even though he cannot read about the councils or from the Fathers.

That's all for now M.... Hope this helps you. Pray the Rosary for the grace of discernment and you will receive it for certain. Feel free to discuss this with me again. We don't want to loose any more of the few faithful 'faithful' that are left. As of today surprisingly there are still some faithful whom I have not yet met.

I send my blessing to you.

How Old is Your Church?

If you are a Lutheran, your religion was founded by Martin Luther, an ex-monk of the Catholic Church, in the year 1517.

If you belong to the Church of England, your religion was founded by King Henry VIII in the year 1534, because the Pope would not grant him a divorce with the right to re-marry.

If you are a Presbyterian, your religion was founded by John Knox in Scotland in the year 1560.

If you are a Protestant Episcopalian, your religion was an offshoot of the Church of England, founded by Samuel Seabury in the American colonies in the 17th century.

If you are a Congregationalist, your religion was originated by Robert Brown in Holland in 1582.

If you are a Methodist, your religion was launched by John and Charles Wesley in England in the year 1744.

If you are a Unitarian, your religion was founded by Theophilus Lindley in London in the year 1774.

If you are a Mormon (Latter Day Saints), Joseph Smith started your religion in Palmyra, New York in the year 1829.

If you are a Baptist, you owe the tenets of your religion to John Smyth, who originated it in Amsterdam in the year 1606.

If you are of the Dutch Reformed church, you recognize Michaelis Jones as founder, as he originated your religion in New York in the year 1628.

If you worship with the Salvation Army, your sect began with William Booth in London in the year 1865.

If you are a Christian Scientist, you look to 1879 as the year in which your religion was born, and to Mrs. Mary Baker Eddy as its founder.

If you belong to one of the religious organizations known as "Church of the Nazarene", "Pentecostal Gospel", "Holiness Church", "Pilgrim Holiness Church", "Church of God in Christ" or "Jehovah's Witnesses", your religion is among the literally hundreds of new sects founded by men within the past one hundred years.

If you belong to the Novus-Ordo sect, sometimes referred to as the "Post-Vatican II" religion, your religion was founded in the mid-1960's by "Pope Paul VI", with the assistance of an array of heretics, infidels, pagans and Freemasons. While somewhat loosely based on the teachings of Roman Catholicism, this religion nonetheless promotes ideas and notions which are in absolute contradiction to the unchangeable tenets of the Catholic Faith.

If you are a Roman Catholic; if you attend only the Traditional Roman Rite Latin Mass and receive the traditional Sacraments according to the time-honored, unchangeable rites of Holy Mother Church, your Church--the One True Church-- was founded in the year 33 by Our Lord, Jesus Christ, and has remained unchanged until this very day.




Why is it so hard to understand?!

FEENEYITES Say You DO need:

Water Agree with words of Jesus Christ
The Sacraments Agree with the Council Trent
The Church Agree with the infallible Popes
The Faith Agree with sacred scripture

B.O.D.*ITES Say You DON'T need:

Water Disagree with words of Jesus Christ
The Sacraments Disagree with the Council Trent
The Church Disagree with the infallible Popes
The Faith Disagree with sacred scripture
