    Receiving Scorsese isn’t the half of it. He’s now received Andres Serrano, the ‘artist’ who created ‘P*ss Christ’, a crucifix in a bottle of his own urine. It sold for a six-figure sum. The Pope gave him a’mischievous smile’ and thumbs up. I gather this was a reception to mark an exhibition of the Vatican’s contemporary art collection. Serrano has had a number of exhibitions with grossly offensive titles. There isn’t a bodily secretion that he hasn’t featured. I won’t go into details, you can read about this person online. My Facebook feed has been full of it. Of course some people think that the Pope is trying to open dialogue with him, and this would be an admirable thing to do in a private meeting. I cannot believe his two predecessors would have done this. I’m only relieved that Pope Benedict isn’t alive to see this.

    Things have gotten so abominable I try my best to look for positives , light in the dark

    One great, great positive is that these demons in human forms, these perverts and heretics no longer hide. They are way out there in the open for all to see.

    This is a great, great good .

    The separation of the sheep from the goats is happening and will progress in God’s own time and in God’s way. It is true, however, that people are growing tired of the LGBTQ agenda.

    It gives scandal. But we must not let the scandalous behavior in any way derail our faith.

    Sorry I got word that this video of Archbishop Vigano is false, someone just made it all up. Please ignore.

    Why do people do stuff like this? It's crazy.

    Wow, such odd behavior. It makes you wonder if the events, and intense interrogations took a psychological toll on Melanie. Something went wrong. :( I can see why there was no full approval. Very sad.

    Padraig, could those 'other places', with their 'filthy desecrations that the preceding centuries have never seen' include the recent unspeakable sacrileges in Los Angeles?

    Well the Nuns of Perpetual Indulgence don't help matters along any.

    But I believe what the Good Lord is referring here is to Sacriligeous communions. The Eucharist received without Faith by people who do not believe it really is the Lord that comes and receive Him in a State of Mortal sin. This is especially so of the Clergy, the priests, Bishops and Cardinals. When the Sacred Heart appeared to St Margaret Mary he pointed to the Crown of Thorns around His heart and said it had been placed there by clergy doing this. In so doing He showed quite clearly that this was the worst of the worst.

    But aren't Sacrilgeous communions something that has always been happening?
    Yes. But in the first place in previous days there were a lot of restrictions on the reception of the Eucharist, daily communion was the nearly the sole domain of priests. Now Sacriligeous communions are everywhere. A recent survey in the USA , for instance showed that most Catholics (tow thirds) do not believe in the Real Presence.

    Just one-third of U.S. Catholics agree with their church that Eucharist is body, blood of Christ


    Transubstantiation – the idea that during Mass, the bread and wine used for Communion become the body and blood of Jesus Christ – is central to the Catholic faith. Indeed, the Catholic Church teaches that “the Eucharist is ‘the source and summit of the Christian life.’”

    But a new Pew Research Center survey finds that most self-described Catholics don’t believe this core teaching. In fact, nearly seven-in-ten Catholics (69%) say they personally believe that during Catholic Mass, the bread and wine used in Communion “are symbols of the body and blood of Jesus Christ.” Just one-third of U.S. Catholics (31%) say they believe that “during Catholic Mass, the bread and wine actually become the body and blood of Jesus.”


    In addition to asking Catholics what they believe about the Eucharist, the new survey also included a question that tested whether Catholics know what the church teaches on the subject. Most Catholics who believe that the bread and wine are symbolic do not know that the church holds that transubstantiation occurs. Overall, 43% of Catholics believe that the bread and wine are symbolic and also that this reflects the position of the church. Still, one-in-five Catholics (22%) reject the idea of transubstantiation, even though they know about the church’s teaching.

    The vast majority of those who believe that the bread and wine actually become the body and blood of Christ – 28% of all Catholics – do know that this is what the church teaches. A small share of Catholics (3%) profess to believe in the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist despite not knowing the church’s teaching on transubstantiation.

    About six-in-ten (63%) of the most observant Catholics — those who attend Mass at least once a week — accept the church’s teaching about transubstantiation. Still, even among this most observant group of Catholics, roughly one-third (37%) don’t believe that the Communion bread and wine actually become the body and blood of Christ (including 23% who don’t know the church’s teaching and 14% who know the church’s teaching but don’t believe it). And among Catholics who do not attend Mass weekly, large majorities say they believe the bread and wine are symbolic and do not actually become the body and blood of Jesus.


    The survey also finds that belief in the real presence of Christ in the Eucharist is most common among older Catholics, though majorities in every age group (including 61% of those age 60 and over) believe that the bread and wine are symbols, not the actual body and blood of Christ.

    So those who receive the Body of the Lord unbelieving murder and torture Christ anew, most particularly the priests, Bishops, and Cardinals who do so and enable and permit others to do so. This is happening throughout the world in huge , huge numbers. It has gotten so bad that my guess would be that there is hardly a Mass said anywhere in the World were a blasphemous Communion does not occur.

    This was not so in previous ages. As Pope St John Paul ii said we have lost our sense of sin. Many Catholics have no idea at all what a Mortal Sin is.

    In talking to St Margaret Mary the Sacred Heart mentioned another thing that is going ahead full steam in our days like never before and that is the Black Mass. He was referring to Black Masses which were en vogue at the very court of King Louis. Not only were their black Masses being said but the very people who ran France were involved.

    What is worse today is that the very highest in the Church, Bishops and Cardinals who run the Church and are involved. I know this because I was shown this in prayer the last time I was in Rome one Saturday night when I was shown three very high level Black Masses taking place round Rome all at the one time.

    Malachi Martin mentioned this. I know many people can take or leave Malachi Martin ; but he was right on the button with this.

    Sr. Anne of Yahweh is somewhat of a specialist on La Salette and Melanie Calvat. She believes Melanie was a true Saint who died in Altamura, southwest of Bari, in Italy. She was completely unknown by the townspeople of Altamura and went to Mass every day. Here is the latest video from Sr. Anne revealing exciting news regarding Melanie Calvat. Items of her clothing have been found which were deposited by her Confessor, a Redemptorist priest. These items contain apparently miraculuous blood stains purportedly originating from souls in Purgatory. This video is imo convincing pushback against the idea that Melanie was just a hysterical woman. However, as the video proposes, series study and scientific confirmation of these items and phenomena is now required.

    Fr Amorth referred to these abominations as well.

    I think the two big things that makes an Exorcist into Superman are these.

    Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary.


    I was listening to a little video today about the remarkable Father Dolindo. Jaw dropping humility.

    Jaw dropping.

    It was only recently that I discovered the Servant of God Don Dolindo Ruotolo, a Neapolitan priest and a Franciscan tertiary, through his beautiful prayer of surrender to the Divine Will. He was a near contemporary of Padre Pio, who said on meeting Don Dolindo that he “could see paradise in his soul”.

    Don Dolindo’s story contains some of the same exceptional signs of sanctity and some of the same no-nonsense spirituality as Padre Pio’s, especially his death in the odour of sanctity in 1970, aged 88, after 65 years as a priest. He was a scholar and mystic, as well as a great pastor, renowned exorcist and spiritual director, who was famed for miraculous cures and healing from spiritual afflictions. In 1940 he published a criticism of some tendencies he discerned in the historical-critical method of biblical scholarship. He also produced his own monumental work of biblical commentary with the aim of making the Scriptures more accessible.

    He had a great devotion to our Blessed Lady and described himself as “Mary’s little old priest”. In the last years of his life, afflicted by acute arthritis, partial paralysis and many ailments, he wrote a book on the rosary. He suffered from very severe physical ailments, yet did not let these impede his helping others. When his own sickness was deemed incurable, he wrote a mock prescription which read: “Obedience to the will of God to be taken at all times, with regular doses of Hail Marys.”

    Interestingly, references to sickness and death are common in his writings and sayings. When the Naples Metro system was first opened he famously ignored the signs which said, “Do not cross the tracks. Danger of death!” When witnesses asked him why he did this he responded by telling them he didn’t believe it; after all, he hadn’t died, had he? And he would then proceed to point out how some people apply exactly the same logic when the Church says something is a mortal sin – that is, there is a danger of death – and say similarly: “I don’t believe it. After all, nothing has happened to me yet.”

    As well as his physical ailments, he lived a life of such extreme poverty that his family disowned him. He was constantly available to the sick and poor. He left a dying promise that anyone needy could knock on his tomb if they needed his help. Increasing numbers of people make their way to the Neapolitan church where he is buried and knock thrice in the name of the Trinity.

    The simplicity of what he writes about surrender attracted me. He advises saying regularly 10 times, “Jesus, I surrender myself to you. Take care of everything.” He provides a kind of dialogue with Jesus in response to this, who says: “But having surrendered, really do surrender, don’t go on worrying and revisiting the issue. Don’t be like a child who asks a parent for something and then goes and tries to get it themselves anyway.”

    The human heart is made to surrender to the Lord, but the human psyche fears to give up control. To follow this habit of asking Jesus to take care of everything, and then actually stepping back and letting him, will require many repetitions, I think. But it is actually a very simple way to holiness.

    Lovely. He is a great favorite! The surrender novena is a great favorite of mine.

    Fr Ripperger was asked once if he was ever frightened during exorcism. He said no because he has Our Lady with him.

    I was sad to learn that the Father's family disowned him. Being a young Italian this would have been a really, really big deal for him...well I suppose for anyone really. But being Celibate and have no family of his own it must have been a killer. I know for instance how very much Padre Pio loved his own family.

    Back in the day becoming a priest would have been a big status deal, money , rank power. It's clear that Fr Dolindo did not play into all this. It reminds me of St Pope Pius X, as a priest, Bishop, Cardinal and Pope he gave everything away to the poor. Every last cent. One time he was walking around the Vatican Gardens with a Doctor when the Doctor warned Pope Pius he had forgotten to lock the doors to his appartments. The saint told the Doc not to worry as there was nothing of value there.

    We find this time and time with the saints, they give every last cent away. Very touching.

    Fr Dolindo has the most lovely face as with all the saints. But it is easy to see suffering, the Cross writ large.
