Newsweek says, without meaningful explanation, that there is no threat; but who trusts the major media these days? It brings me no less concern; just the opposite! And the projection that striking the U.S. eastern seaboard would be about 7 hours after a major fault collapse in La Palma, gives little time for evacuation to any significant higher ground. The other cause for concern, still relatively unmentioned, is an expected continuation of the volcanic activity over the next 3 months; i.e. the major force behind causing collapse.

Aspirin and the not-so-hidden vax agenda?

September 18th, 2021, Promulgated by Diane Harris

Less than a day ago, the Cleansing Fire Ticker added the ‘aspirin et al’ story here: Hospital system makes workers vow to give up antibiotics, Tylenol to get COVID vaccine exemptions – LifeSite (lifesitenews.com)

One needs to get to the 7th mini-paragraph before the word ‘aspirin’ shows up, but it is there, nonetheless, invoked as a test of the sincerity and commitment of  people seeking a religious exemption from the controversial ‘vax jab.’

Conway Regional Hospital in Arkansas gives its employees who seek a religious exemption the following statement:

  • “Based on your religious exemption request, we ask that you complete the below attestation,” the form, dated September 3, states. “This will help to validate your understanding of the ubiquity of fetal cell use in the testing and development of common medicines and consumer products and support your claim of a ‘sincerely held belief’.” 

The LifeSiteNews article states: “The form features a list of 30 medicines that it claims ‘have used fetal cells in … development,’ including aspirin, Tylenol, ibuprofen, Benadryl, Tums, azithromycin, Sudafed, acetaminophen, and Pepto Bismol.”

The theory behind requiring abstention from aspirin and certain other popular drugs is ostensibly to test the willingness of the user to abstain from other drugs claimed to be dependent upon abortive materials in their development and, we might add, possibly ‘to punish the recipient of the waiver too.’

But it seems highly unlikely that some such drugs have any connection to abortive materials at all, unless sitting side-by-side on a pharmacy shelf qualifies as a connection! Aspirin is a particularly noteworthy case.

LifeSiteNews points out that “Many of the drugs listed by Conway Regional, were actually developed decades before the advent of aborted fetal cell lines in the 1970s.” And, we might add, well before the commercialization of aborted baby parts. “Aspirin, discovered in 1853, began circulating in the United States in 1899” and some of those early forms are still readily available especially in animal husbandry.

  • So, aspirin was used in North America long before the Bayer product reached our shores! The American Indian chewed willow bark aspirin precursors for pain relief. But the vax advocates have an especially serious reason for putting aspirin on their list of the forbidden….

During the early stages of COVID-19, when some autopsies were done on the deceased, before they were forbidden, it was noted that the victims’ lungs were filled with blood-clots. Recently, the death of a nursing infant was tied to its mother’s recent vax, death caused by blood-clots in the infant.  It was noted that a fair number of early Covid victims would have survived if they had taken aspirin to dissolve the clots! So, the question is whether or not banning aspirin use by recipients of a waiver is really about a ‘teaching moment’ or about serving a depopulation agenda.

Michael Matt joins lay Catholics around the world

September 8th, 2021, Promulgated by Diane Harris

by Michael Matt (Remnant)

“In light of so much bad news, I’m pleased to bring you some good news. An international group of laymen (journalists, professors, writers, activists) has signed an open letter to Catholics of the world, demanding retraction of Francis’ cataclysmic motu proprio, Traditionis Custodes, attempting to abrogate the Traditional Latin Mass.

I was very pleased to join this august body as one of the signatories of this letter, which includes the following as its penultimate paragraph:

“Before God and before all men, we solemnly affirm that

we will not allow anyone to deprive the faithful of this treasure which is first and foremost that of the Church. We will not remain inactive in the face of the spiritual suffocation of vocations that the Motu Proprio Traditionis Custodes will bring about. We will not deprive our children of the unique means of transmitting the faith that is faithfulness to the traditional liturgy.”

Rumors out of the Vatican just now are not good, as they suggest Francis is about to make yet another move against the Traditional Latin Mass. Whether these rumors are true or not, the time to strike back is right now.

For the sake of your children as well as the future of our Church, please share this letter with everyone you know.

We will not back down. We must not back down, not this time, not again! The line in the sand is drawn, and Francis drew it.

If he wants a war, he’ll get one. Traditional Catholic laymen are united in one purpose, and we will not let them take the Mass from us again.

Thanks for helping me get the world out.  It’s this Mass that matters.

In Christo Rege,
Michael J. Matt

WE WILL NOT DEPRIVE OUR CHILDREN: International Group of Catholic Lay Leaders Call for Revocation of Traditionis Custodes

 

“What man is there among you, of whom if his son shall ask bread, will he reach him a stone?” (Mt 7:9)

Letter from the Faithful Attached to the Traditional Latin Mass, to Catholics of the Whole World

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

We have been deeply saddened to learn of Pope Francis’ decision to revoke the main provisions of the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum promulgated by Pope Benedict XVI on July 7, 2007. After decades of division and quarrels, Summorum Pontificum was a source of peace and reconciliation for all Catholics.”

What else will abortuaries be used for?

September 7th, 2021, Promulgated by Diane Harris

Consider that all the covid vaccine manufacturers caution against administering the vax to pregnant women. Consider that nursing babies have died soon after their mothers received the vax. Consider that it has yet to be proven that teenagers, male and/or female, administered the covid vaccine, will ever be able to conceive healthy babies.

With such considerations, one might reasonably project that fewer pregnancies will occur, and therefore fewer abortuaries will be built. (And none of this requires a projection of successful political and moral opposition, because the ‘vaccine’ will ‘handle’ the problem, i.e. ‘vaccine as contraceptive.’)

In the Rochester, NY area there is a strong political push to build a new abortuary in the Brighton suburb, for the alleged purpose of attracting the out-of-state business, especially where state legislation (like the recent Texas heartbeat bill) is not as wildly permissive as the Cuomo legacy of death at birth. But what can one expect when the babies and the pregnancies are reduced beyond the operating margins of the bricks and mortar? Will at least some of the abortuaries be closed? Or will they be converted to a different purpose?

A different purpose? Yes. What could that possibly be? What else would fit neatly into the ‘mission statement’ of killing the newborns? How about euthanasia! Cuomo tried several times to coerce the legislators to support euthanasia, with less opposition each time. Now he lacks the power of the gov, but has more time to creatively pursue his most sinful projects, and maybe to name them after his father, since the Tappan Zee was a “bridge too far.” We’ll see.

My sad expectation is that the abortuary so much of Brighton is lobbying for in their own backyard will be catering to euthanasia in the lifetimes of their currently ardent supporters. How ironic!

But here is the true irony. Demographically, the Brighton suburb has a large and strong Jewish population. I learned first-hand of their comital to life when two tragedies rocked the community, both as a result of drunk drivers. One killed two sisters returning home to their family being rear-ended by a drunk driver of a large truck on, I think it was, Route 81. The other was of a teenage Jewish girl walking with friends on the side of the road near Utica, being struck and killed by a car driven by a drunk driver.

Because my own brother almost died from being struck head-on by a drunk driver, I became involved with formation of RAID, Rochester Against Intoxicated Driving, and in being President for about 5 years. When I had to relocate to Texas for business reasons, the members gave me a glass plate with the quote of an ancient sage:

“To save one life is as to have saved the whole world.” 

I treasured that sentiment when I received it, and still do. I knew how sincerely it was meant, not just talking about, but doing. We could always count on a strong showing from Brighton to a variety of events, including the annual motorcade for life, for victim support efforts and in court watch. We could always count on those from Brighton being life-centered.

That is why I am so personally shocked at that community’s support for an abortuary in their midst, and the culture of death which it brings. And which it would likely continue to bring in the future.

Also, it reminds me of how much the Jews suffered in concentration camps in World War II. My husband’s Company liberated Dachau at the end of the war and he sometimes spoke of those still alive as “walking skeletons.” And he spoke of how the German neighbors ‘outside the walls’ insisted they knew nothing of what was happening there, despite the smoke from the crematoria and trainloads of Jews who arrived and never left. My own visits to Auschwitz and Birkenau gave similar testimony.

It is hard for me to understand why Jewish voters in particular would want to bring such a painful reminder into their own community, and not fear what else it might become. Every such decision reminds me of the Birkenau Concentration Camp, where moving a switch sent a train full of people to forced labor, or to death. Like any decision, like a vote, for life or death.

God gives, and NYS takes away

August 31st, 2021, Promulgated by Diane Harris

The difference between a religious exemption and a conscientious objection is wrapped in confusion. The powers-that-be seem to prefer the term “religious exemption” at least for the reason that the state exercises many controls over the tax-exempt entity and can more easily put pressure on such an entity than on the mind and heart of a committed individual.

The conscience ‘knows’ when something is or is not justified, especially after a diligent effort to discern. Government has had an unholy alliance with the power behind the pulpit for decades, threatening preachers, at least in their own minds, that to speak out against abortion, for example, was illegal and could lead to loss of tax exempt status. And, as an extra measure, government silenced the locked-down religious voices for months in 2020, without even an after-the-event peep.

So the state makes it a matter, not of conscience, but of whether or not some religious entity is aligned, as a matter of faith, with the issue in dispute by the individual. Simultaneously, churches and other religious entities conveniently play the game of providing exemptions, which they are powerless to do. All they can do, if inclined, is verify their own teachings, and witness or not to the laws of that faith.

Thus, each case is a one-off, keeping the pool of objections to government manageably small, and miserably weak.

Today’s LifeSiteNews reports the activity in NYS. There are 450,000 healthcare workers whose jobs are being threatened if they do not take the vax. Unless they act as a group they will cave one-by-one, with the strongest consciences suffering the most. Even the exemptions already awarded are being revoked, showing how powerless the individual really is. It explains much about the need to have formed labor unions at the turn of the last century.

If 450,000 (or some relatively large portion thereof) refuse the vax, the outcome might well be different. NYS cannot function healthcare-wise, missing even 100,000. But it takes courage to see the threat as an opportunity to be heard, and as a real tipping point. Will New Yorkers be the ones to stand up? They were the ones who ran into the burning buildings, weren’t they?

I’m praying for the voice in people’s hearts to be heard. And 9/11 is a good time to speak up. NYS is a good place to do so. Now.

Top Doc: mass vax will be deadliest in history

August 29th, 2021, Promulgated by Diane Harris

DALLAS, Texas (LifeSiteNews) – “The forced mass vaccination of Americans will be regarded as one of the most deadly and costly medical mistakes in history, renowned pioneer in the early treatment of COVID-19, Texas cardiologist and internist Dr. Peter McCullough, has said.”

Citing recent data from U.S. Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) and from Israel and Britain, where COVID cases are multiplying among the vaccinated, McCullough, who is editor-in-chief of two medical journals and author of over 600 peer-reviewed studies, including 46 dedicated to COVID-19, said he is “deeply worried” about the future of America.  

“Americans are going to bear the brunt of what invariably is going to be a failed mass vaccination program that will go down as one of the most deadly, one of the most injurious and costly in human history,” McCullough said in a recent podcast. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced in April that it has stopped tracking COVID cases among the vaccinated that do not result in hospitalizations or deaths. The agency is now assuming that new cases are among the unvaccinated unless otherwise advised, which skews numbers to paint the unvaccinated as spreaders of disease.

“This intentional misinformation and propaganda scheme has been used to drive an incredible fury of vaccine mandates” for government agencies, veterans administrations, and hundreds of schools and colleges, even though here have been no outbreaks in these places, McCullough said.

Israel was the first country to mass vaccinate its population under an agreement with Pfizer to exchange vaccine supply for public health data in an experiment on the people “to evaluate whether herd immunity protection is observed during the Product vaccination program rollout.” 

Eighty percent of adults are fully vaccinated there, yet COVID cases and serious hospitalizations have risen 20-fold since early July. The media has highlighted that most serious new cases have been among the unvaccinated, while neglecting to report that the majority (more than 80 percent) of new cases reported by the Israeli Health Ministry are among vaccinated individuals.   

In response, Israel introduced a third “booster shot” of Pfizer’s vaccine which has been administered to more than one million people as of August 16. (See CF Ticker for info on how Pfizer CEO refuses to take the vax.)

In the United Kingdom, more than three-quarters of the adult population (76 percent) have received two doses of vaccine and almost 90 percent of adults have received at least one dose. Yet, the number of COVID patients hospitalized has soared sevenfold since early June this year.  

The most recent U.K. report on “variants of concern” revealed that 54 percent of COVID deaths are among the fully vaccinated. A further 12 percent of deaths are among the partially vaccinated who have received one dose.  

Nonetheless, citing the new, circulating Delta variant, the Biden administration is expected to follow Israel’s example and introduce a third booster shot for all nursing home residents and healthcare workers for September.   

The vaccines were never tested for the Delta variant, and their protection has lasted only months. “It’s clear we can’t vaccinate our way out of this,” McCullough said.

COVID-19, no matter what the variant, is easily treatable at home with simple, available drugs, according to McCullough, who has stated that “about 88 percent of hospitalizations and deaths can be avoided” with early treatment.

Since he came out publicly advising early treatment of COVID patients where the government protocol is to send them home and wait for them to get sick, McCullough has found himself targeted by public health institutions and academia. 

A graduate of Baylor University who worked as a Vice Chair of Internal Medicine at Baylor University Medical Center from January 2014 until February 2021, he recently addressed the Texas Senate Health and Human Service Committee about early COVID-19 treatment protocols.

His contract was then cancelled, and he was recently sued by the Texas-based health system Baylor Scott & White after his affiliation with the system was noted during a public interview. 

The lawsuit coincides with a decision by BSWH to mandate vaccination for its 40,000 employees. 

“I’m deeply worried concerned regarding the future of America and also deeply afraid of loss of freedom of speech and of scientific discourse,” McCullough said. 

“There are deep threats out there to doctors who are really doing their best—to help patients and save lives,” he said 

He cited a July 29 statement from the Federation of State Medical Boards which threatens doctors who spread medical “misinformation” about vaccines with losing their medical license. The federation defines scientific information as “consensus-driven for the betterment of public health.” 

McCullough openly criticized the “totalitarian” nature of vaccine mandates and pointed to government vaccine adverse event data noting that “already 11,221 declared disabled due to the vaccine.” That number has since grown to 16,044.

“These safety events are way out of line. This vaccine is nowhere close to be safe. Every person who takes the needle is thinking about the scoreboard.”

Instead, he said, “Americans are flying blind. They don’t know which vaccine is the safest.”

“Americans are given no information on this. It is basically impossible for them to navigate this vaccine decision. They say simply: ‘Take the vaccine, and it doesn’t matter which one.’”

“None of this makes sense in terms of the program being about COVID-19; it almost seems like it’s about submissiveness, or coercion, or control. The population is basically being forced into mass vaccination.”

Vaccination and conscience: a challenge to Church authority

By Phil Lawler ( bio – articles – email ) | Aug 19, 2021

Let’s get something straight. A Catholic priest cannot “give” anyone an exemption from a vaccine mandate. Except in those very rare cases (at least I hope they are very rare) when the priest himself imposes the mandate, he has no authority to issue exemptions.

What a priest can do is support a request for an exemption, by testifying that the request comes from a faithful Catholic, who is spurred by the demands of a conscience formed by principles of Catholic moral teaching. When he offers that support, the priest is not claiming that the Catholic Church bans vaccination. He is not even necessarily saying that he himself opposes vaccination. He is only saying that this individual—his parishioner, presumably—cannot take the vaccine in good conscience. And if vaccination would violate his conscience, then—here the teaching of the Church is crystal-clear—he must not take the vaccine.

Thus even if many Catholics conclude that they should take the vaccine, a priest could remind public authorities that for his parishioner, who has conscientious objections, a requirement to be vaccinated would be a violation of his freedom to act in accordance with his religious beliefs. Indeed I would argue—have argued—that a priest would have a moral obligation to support a parishioner’s conscientious objection.

It is relevant, certainly, that many Catholic moralists have found it possible to endorse vaccination. But issues of conscience are not decided by majority vote. It is noteworthy that prominent bishops— including the Bishop of Rome—have encouraged everyone to be vaccinated. But no responsible Catholic moralist has suggested that vaccination should be compulsory. In fact the closest thing to a definitive Vatican statement on the question, the advisory from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, explicitly states that Covid vaccination “is not, as a rule, a moral obligation and… therefore it must be voluntary.”

Therefore, when some public or private authority calls for compulsory vaccination—in clear violation of the Vatican directive—shouldn’t Catholic priests do what they can to defend the rights of individual Catholics who resist?

If the resistance came from people who could not frame their objections in terms of Catholic moral principles, their pastors could remain indifferent. But in this case, the objections come from Catholics who are strongly motivated by their faith, and well versed in the Church’s moral reflections on the use of vaccines. The conscientious objectors can cite that same document from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, which says that the use of ethically tainted vaccines is permissible “if there is a grave danger,” and exhorts pharmaceutical companies to produce other vaccines “that do not create problems of conscience.” Here the Vatican explicitly recognizes that the available Covid vaccines do create problems of conscience for a faithful Catholic.

So a conflict arises: between Catholics who cannot in conscience accept vaccination, for reasons the Vatican acknowledges; and public or private authorities who insist on compulsory vaccination, which the Vatican condemns. In these circumstances, it is absurd (if not outright dishonest) to say that priests must not support the conscientious objectors. And a priest who has been ordered to be silent in the face of injustice may find that he faces a crisis of conscience himself.

Nat’l Catholic Bioethics Center re Vax Exemption

August 18th, 2021, Promulgated by Diane Harris
The NCBC published a ‘Vaccine Exemption Resource for Individuals’ on July 21 as a guide to those Catholics whose ‘informed conscience’ has come to the ‘sure judgement’ that the experimental COVID-19 vaccines are either morally, medically, or legally impermissible.

The National Catholic Bioethics Center (NCBC) has produced a template for those seeking a religious exemption from vaccine requirements, explaining “the principled religious basis on which a Catholic may determine that he or she ought to refuse certain vaccines.”

The NCBC published a “Vaccine Exemption Resource for Individuals” on July 21 as a guide to those Catholics whose “informed conscience” has come to the “sure judgement” that the experimental COVID-19 vaccines are either morally, medically, or legally impermissible.

The NCBC based its determination that freedom of conscience must be respected on documentation and instruction from within the Catholic Church, including works from the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the Pontifical Academy for Life, and the Catechism of the Catholic Church (CCC).

The NCBC laid out four key principles by which individual faithful may determine their responsibility to take or refuse medical interventions:

  • Vaccination is not morally obligatory in principle and so must be voluntary.
  • There is a general moral duty to refuse the use of medical products, including certain vaccines, that are produced using human cells lines derived from direct abortions. It is permissible to use such vaccines only under certain case-specific conditions, based on a judgment of conscience.
  • A person’s informed judgments about the proportionality of medical interventions are to be respected unless they contradict authoritative Catholic moral teachings.
  • A person is morally required to obey his or her sure conscience, even if it errs.

In line with the principles set out, the NCBC affirmed that “there is no authoritative Church teaching universally obliging Catholics to receive any vaccine,” thus determining that no binding civil mandate can justly exist.

To aid Catholics who object to medical interventions based on these principles, the NCBC produced a template letter July 7, formulated from the same vaccine exemption criteria laid out in the July 21 letter, for those who might need to satisfy employer vaccination requirements, for example.

The foremost objection to COVID vaccine uptake lies in the moral repugnance of the connection to abortion found in the currently available and experimental COVID jabs. But beside this, the NCBC noted that “a Catholic might refuse a vaccine based on the Church’s teachings concerning therapeutic proportionality.”

A judgement of therapeutic proportionality “must be made by the person who is the potential recipient of the intervention in the concrete circumstances,” the guidance reads, meaning that public health officials cannot determine that a vaccine ubiquitously serves the common good, for instance, on the behalf of individual consciences.

In fact, the NCBC clarified that the “sure judgement” of one’s own conscience regarding the moral liceity of taking any medical intervention “must be obeyed,” rather than instructions from church or secular officials which contradict that judgement.

This is borne out in CCC n.1777, the guidance emphasized: “In all he says and does, man is obliged to follow faithfully what he knows to be just and right. It is by the judgment of his conscience that man perceives and recognizes the prescriptions of the divine law.”

NCBC doubles down on commitment to conscience freedom

While the NCBC made clear that the guidelines enunciated above do not address the medical, moral, or legal objections to vaccinating against COVID-19 in themselves, the Center has previously announced its opposition to mandating the currently available coronavirus shots.

The NCBC emphatically stated that it “does not endorse mandated COVID-19 immunization with any of the three vaccines that have received Emergency Use Authorization as of July 1, 2021, from the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA).”

On Tuesday, the NCBC doubled down on its commitment to conscience freedom, drawing again upon the teaching from the Church on obedience to one’s conscience and the common good.

An August 17 press release from the bioethics group explained the basis of its call for the freedom of conscience relating to medical intervention on “the full range of the teachings of the Church, including its social teachings, which provide guidance on appropriate respect for persons while building up the common good.”

While acknowledging that “the Church encourages people to receive vaccination for COVID-19, even though the currently available vaccines in the U.S. have a remote connection to abortion through the use of certain cell lines,” the NCBC maintained that the production and authorization of a “vaccine that did not rely on abortion-derived cell lines for manufacture and/or testing would remove a major obstacle to COVID-19 vaccination for many.”

Continuing, the Center insisted that “[it] is extremely important to embrace both respect for the common good and conscience as the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) did in December 2020,” which itself states that “vaccination is not, as a rule, a moral obligation” and “therefore, it must be voluntary.”

Owing to the complexity of moral and medical factors pertinent to the conscientious determination to take or refuse the COVID jabs, the NCBC committed to “continue to help people to draw upon the deepest resources of the Catholic faith to address the many challenges posed by COVID-19 with integrity and charity.”

A number of Catholic dioceses and universities in the U.S. are mandating coronavirus vaccines, or instructing their priests not to assist Catholics with religious exemptions. However, religious exemptions filed with most secular employers and institutions in the U.S. do not require the signature or involvement of a pastor.

Catholics also have recourse to general Christian exemptions that are compatible with Catholic doctrine but not based on the magisterium of the Catholic Church.

Has the Bible warned us NOT to take the Vax?

August 12th, 2021, Promulgated by Diane Harris

When the Bible was written, nearly 2000 years ago, the word ‘vax’ or vaccination was not used. The people of that time would not have known what a vaccination is or would be! But that doesn’t mean the LORD didn’t provide His flock adequate warning about the danger to souls in the ‘end-times.’ One such caution is against submitting to the “Mark of the Beast.” A particular warning in Revelation 13:15-18 is startlingly close to threatened government, medical and social efforts to punish those who won’t accept the COVID-19 vax. And, as Revelation warns, refusal has a penalty of death.

But first, now, the effort to force the vax is focused on incentives, financial payments or lottery-type rewards. Already there is a cry of ‘unfairness’ from among those already vaxxed without such reward. We can expect more ratcheting up of rewards (which itself slows down acquiescence by waiting for a ‘better deal,’) even celebrity notoriety, as we noted when the first US Bishop (Bp. Wenski, Miami) rushed to have his picture taken getting ‘the jab.’ It speaks volumes regarding what ‘society’ really values. But moral, ethical or religious pressure initially had been left to the churches, which gives to the evil one a ‘bonus’ of having split the flock, induced mistrust of the shepherds, and confused the lambs.

 

Why doesn’t Cardinal Dolan ‘get it’?

Pope Francis, according to the Curia of the Archdiocese of New York, “… said we have the moral responsibility to get vaccinated.” WRONG! We have the responsibility to consider all our individual moral responsibilities, in the hierarchy of good / better / best, and versus the risks associated with each, making a sincere Prudential Judgment of conscience. In addition to considering our own health, medical history, dependents’ needs and other responsibilities, the numerous serious health impacts experienced by some recipients of the vax, the degree of trustworthiness of the experiential data, and many other unknowns, we seek to form our consciences in Faith. The NY Curial representation of Pope Francis’ order is woefully lacking recognition of our right to follow the Prudential Judgment of a well-formed conscience. Moreover, it is surprising to find nothing supportive of a supposed order from Pope Francis with a biblical basis or catechism reference. Cardinal Dolan ought to be ashamed of his curia. Or at least of himself.

Another problem with the NY Curial Letter is the opening sentence of the 3rd paragraph: “There is no basis for a priest to issue a religious exemption to the vaccine.” Then the writer expresses concern for diocesan “embarrassment” and “personal liability” of the priest. Now we get a peek at what is really driving decisions in the NY Diocese and what they weigh for the good of souls on the other side of the balance. Nada. While there may be no basis for a religious exemption on a case per se, which would require judging each individual’s discernment and conscience, nevertheless there is plenty of opportunity to reply to the civil authorities with Church Teaching on respect for conscience, and application of relevant biblical references.

But apparently Cardinal Dolan’s Curia doesn’t recognize the relevant Word of God, handed down biblically and consistently with Church Teaching for nearly two millennia. The NY House of Card’s asserts that there is a moral obligation to receive the vax without any discernment, which will obviously be read by government authorities as confirming NO basis for dissent, and therefore using the Church’s silence against her own members.

We could also add here the failure to criticize the use of abortive materials in the vaccines, a position so well-articulated by Bishop Athanasius Schneider here:  Bishop Schneider explains why Christians must never take abortion-tainted COVID vaccine (lifesitenews.com) and by Lifesite News here:  THE PROOF: Many aborted babies are used in vaccine creation – LifeSite (lifesitenews.com)

Further, Cardinal Dolan endangers souls and speaks falsely to millions of Christians under his influence by not using the teaching moment to point out the obviousness of the warning in Revelation 13:15-18 as a match between the vax and the Mark of the Beast. Moreover, the reference clarifies that the Mark of the Beast has a satanic source, not charity for neighbor!

  • “We always remain vigilant when any bureaucracy seeks to impose uniform and sweeping requirements on a group of people in areas of personal conscience,” said the bishops, adding, “human-rights violations and a loss of respect for each person’s God-given dignity often begin with government mandates that fail to respect the freedom of conscience.”
  • “… the city of Denver said that employers should make “reasonable accommodations to persons who have either medical or religious exemptions from the vaccine,” with each employer responsible to determine these accommodations.  Colorado’s bishops said that refusal can be reasonable in an individual’s judgment. The Catholic Church teaches that a person may refuse a medical intervention, including a vaccination, if his or her conscience leads them to that decision,” they said in their letter.
  • The Colorado bishops stressed Colorado Catholic dioceses’ commitment to working with public-health officials and other authorities to protect communities, while also “urging that personal freedoms of conscience and expression be fully supported, and the integrity and autonomy of religious institutions be respected.”
  • The National Catholic Bioethics Center lists a form letter on its website for individual Catholics seeking religious exemptions from vaccine mandates. The article also comments on the New York Diocesan ‘approach.’

 

Survey of reasons for refusing the vax

A survey seems to indicate (by omission from the template) that there are no significant religious or spiritual reasons for refusing the vax.  Although it may be that people are not sharing such concerns, or surveyors cannot ‘imagine’ such a concern, it seems likely that the survey is merely superficial by missing a relevant determinant, and/or that Christians aren’t articulating their justifiable concerns:

Side effects 53%

Waiting to see if safe 40%

Don’t trust vaccines 37%

Don’t trust government 27%

Don’t believe I need it 26%

Other 16%

Think other people need it more 11%

Don’t like vaccines 10%

Doctor has not recommended 7%

Concerned about cost 3%

 

How is the vax connected to the Bible?

Within the last year, there was a doctors’ group’s assertion that those rejecting the vax, or the jab as they call it, should be pressured by not being able to travel, to buy food, to go to Church, to even leave their home, and should suffer other egregious withdrawals of common necessities of life. One suspects that group, and others, knew at least in part that there were good and sound reasons the vax would be rejected, as we are seeing now. The frequency of the call to ‘punish’ those who don’t take the vax implies the likelihood there will be some retribution, perhaps even much retribution, with 79% currently blaming the un-vaxxed for the Delta Variant.

 

The Religious Reason

Where does their idea come from? Well, actually, from the Bible, from nearly 2000 years ago, in the Book of Revelation (Here are the Revelation quotes in Chapter/verse order.)

Rev 13:11-18 “Then I saw another beast which rose out of the earth; it had two horns like a lamb and it spoke like a dragon. It exercises all the authority of the first beast in its presence, and makes the earth and its inhabitants worship the first beast, whose mortal wound was healed. It works great signs, even making fire come down from heaven to earth in the sight of men; and by the signs which it is allowed to work in the presence of the beast, it deceives those who dwell on earth, bidding them make an image for the beast which was wounded by the  sword and yet lived; and it was allowed to give breath to the image of the beast so that the image of the beast should even speak, and to cause those who would not worship the image of the beast to be slain. Also it causes all, both small and great, both rich and poor, both free and slave, to be marked on the right hand or the forehead, so that no one can buy or sell unless he has the mark, that is, the name of the beast or the number of its name. This calls for wisdom: let him who has understanding reckon the number of the beast, for it is a human number, its number is six hundred and sixty-six.”

Rev 14:11 And the smoke of their torment goes up for ever and ever; and they have no rest, day or night, these worshipers of the beast and its image, and whoever receives the mark of its name.”

Rev 16:2 So the first angel went and poured his bowl on the earth, and foul and evil sores came upon the men who bore the mark of the beast and worshiped its image.

Rev 19:20 And the beast was captured, and with it the false prophet who in its presence had worked the signs by which he deceived those who had received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped its image. These two were thrown alive into the lake of fire that burns with sulphur.

Rev 20:4 Then I saw thrones, and seated on them were those to whom judgment was committed. Also I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their testimony to Jesus and for the word of God, and who had not worshiped the beast or its image and had not received its mark on their foreheads or their hands. They came to life, and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

Revelation, aka The Apocalypse, is enough for me to not want to take the mark which God’s Word warns us against. But why isn’t this considered as a religious reason to refuse the vax? Why isn’t the Church using such quotes to defend us against the powers of the beast? Or at least to witness openly to God’s WORD? It seems like the voices of those doctors making the threat have a connection to the beast, like the evil one’s bragging about causing so many to go astray and to self-identify as being behind the Marks, i.e. the COVID ‘jabs.’

So, how much simpler could it be? Why aren’t we taking the vax? Because God told us nearly 2000 years ago not to do so. Why aren’t the priests and bishops, standing up for us who are individually facing the oppression of being pressured to do what could cost us our souls?

My friends, perhaps we do not yet see how wounded the Church is from starving the sheep for 80 days during lockdown, and how few even acknowledge their own participation, let alone repentance.

“For the time has come for judgment

to begin with the household of God;

and if it begins with us,

what will be the end of those

who do not obey the gospel of God?”

News from St. John the Evangelist Parish in Spencerport, NY

Fr. Justin Miller, the new Parochial Administrator at St. John the Evangelist Church in Spencerport, NY, is pleased to announce that the Tabernacle has been moved back to the center of the Sanctuary behind the main altar. It had been in a reposition chapel since a renovation around 2004.

Many have already commented how grateful they are for this change, and for the increased reverence and visibility of Jesus in their midst. Fr. Miller expressed appreciation for all the work done by the prior pastor, Fr. Peter Mottola, to establish this project and move it forward, as well as the current church renovation begun under his direction and effort.

Regarding further developments, Fr. Miller noted that the prior Mass schedule provided for Mass in the Extraordinary Form (TLM: Traditional Latin Mass) every Friday and on First Saturdays as well.

Fr. Miller has been in contact with the diocese regarding the future possibility of learning the TLM and receiving a faculty to celebrate Holy Mass in the Extraordinary Form.

In the meantime, a number of Masses in the Extraordinary Form will be scheduled as able, beginning with a High Mass for the Feast of the Transfiguration, with Fr. Peter Van Lieshout, Rector of Sacred Heart Cathedral, as guest celebrant:

High Mass in the Extraordinary Form (TLM)
8:00 AM on Friday, August 6th

Flavors, foods and cosmetics containing aborted materials?

July 30th, 2021, Promulgated by Diane Harris

Aborted Babies In Pepsi, Kraft, And Nestle – Shocking Report | Genuine Christianity Now

The report referred to in the link above appeared in October 2019; i.e. just before covid-19 entered the world stage. The report seems to have then been lost in media frenzy of lockdown, masks, and isolation from support or political action networks.  It was a most timely release of information under the radar!

The surprise is how many well-known products are alleged to be compromised according to these 2019 lists. What  is a consumer to do? Is it a sin to consume products with such allegations? To consume  any products without verification that they are ‘clean’ of aborted materials? When approached by a penitent wanting to confess the very real possibility that he or she may have ingested aborted remains or used them cosmetically or medically, either because of lack of information or because the penitent has done insufficient research to assess the truth, or that the truth is unknowable, the routine pastoral response may be to waive any responsibility on the part of the penitent.  But is such repeated dismissal a willful ignorance? or not? Should consumers be demanding an ethical labeling of products which represent they  use no body parts or abortion technology?  Shouldn’t that same law codify serious penalties for misrepresentation?

Not so strange a concern?

In June 2012, a U.S. election year, there was a two week effort by the USCCB to focus on pro-life issues. Locally, there was a program held at the Notre Dame Retreat House in Canandaigua with a wide range of invited speakers, called “Festival for Freedom.” I remember, as part of the background and preparation work, reading (for the first time) that China was providing capsulized protein supplements containing abortion matter. Somehow, it no long seems as unbelievable as it did in 2012! As a people, we seem to find such dire possibility unthinkable, until it arrives on our front doorstep, with a note in its mouth! Yet, notice a thread which holds together strategies of contraception, abortion, euthanasia, plague and war, and even Bill Gates becoming the largest farmland holder in the U.S. At some level, isn’t the culture of death impelled by fear of starvation, and lack of knowing and trusting a loving God? We don’t pray “Give us this day our annual bread ….”

Warning:

The list from the October 2019 article is attached; click to continue but, beware, it is hard to “not know” after having read through the list. There are denial references too to consider. For those tired of being phoo-phooed by their confessor on these matters, why not bring a copy of the whole article (from the link) to confession and leave it for the confessor to consider? It isn’t enough to merely say “Well, I’ll just avoid the food from, say, China.” No, indeed. China just bought Hellmann’s Mayo.

It begins with Reverence for the Holy Eucharist

July 13th, 2021, Promulgated by Diane Harris

It all begins with a deep reverence for the Holy Eucharist. It’s not about interior decorating. It’s not about a stage setting or theatrics. It’s not about pleasing an ‘audience.’ The subject ‘it’ is the transfer, i.e., the raising, of the Tabernacle to the highest point of reverence and centrality in the Church, and in our lives.


We have had some earlier articles on Cleansing Fire about elevating Tabernacles in various Churches (see *footnote below.) But after experiencing such changes first hand, in my own parish, it became noticeable how properly emphasizing the Eucharistic Presence in the Holy Tabernacle is a catalyst for even greater reverence!

For the last four years, St. Peter’s Parish, under the pastorship and commitment of Father Peter Van Lieshout, has thrived by growing into an even holier worship environment.  While true of all three churches which comprise St. Peter’s Parish, St. Dominic in Shortsville, St. Francis in Phelps, and St. Felix in Clifton Springs, it is St. Felix which completed the triad of each Tabernacle being raised to its rightful high and center position.

We look closer at St. Felix but, first, let’s summarize the change with ‘before’ and ‘after’ pictures, then add some details!

 

‘Before’ picture of St. Felix Sanctuary.

 

 

The picture above shows how the Sanctuary of St. Felix Church looked approximately two years ago. Note the small tabernacle under the Sacred Heart statue, an almost hidden bench under the crucifix, with a flower arrangement on the shelf behind the bench. The piano was then the only musical instrument at St. Felix.

‘After’ picture of St. Felix Sanctuary

 

 

The elevation of the Tabernacle led to creation of a proper altar for celebrating Mass ad orientem, whether for a Traditional Latin Mass or an ad orientem Novus Ordo.

And still there is enough space in the Sanctuary to celebrate the Novus Ordo Mass ad populum. (Celebrant facing the people.) That configuration can be seen in the live-streamed 8:00 AM Mass on Sundays, an accommodation added during the covid lockdown of 2020: www.stpeterparish.us

 

High altar, baldachin & reredos at St. Theresa Church before it closed.

Yet, as the above pictures show, there was opportunity to bring even more reverence to the holy space.

What had been a sadness for St. Theresa’s Church in Stanley, being closed and sold, led to gratitude in Clifton Springs when St. Theresa’s high altar was moved to St. Felix.  

And not only the high altar came from St. Theresa’s, but even the baldachin (roof-like structure over the altar; also called an ‘altar tester’) and reredos (wooden wall reaching from altar to baldachin) were included.

If one looks closely at the ‘after’ picture of the St. Felix Sanctuary, it is possible to see the cross structure from St. Theresa’s underlying the crucifix bearing the Corpus of Christ, already so precious to the St. Felix community.

 

 

“Treasure” found in Choir Loft 

Further, Father Van Lieshout found the old altar rail in the dusty choir loft of St. Theresa’s Church and rescued it from demolition.

He had that altar rail seriously polished, refurbished and re-installed at St. Felix.

The altar rail is now a gleaming tribute to increased reverence, and to the patronage of parishioner Doug Triplett.

 

 

The altar rail contributes to the sense of better defining the sacred space of the Sanctuary, being able to kneel before Christ Himself, and taking a few seconds after Communion to greet interiorly our Heavenly Guest.

The rail also helps those who need support in rising safely from kneeling, without compromising their reverence or giving up a lifelong practice as they age.

 

Other Projects and an Invitation

During this same period of time, St. Felix’s confessional space was also restructured for greater safety and privacy, and an organ added in the choir loft as well. Lest anyone think it is all and only about one church of the three parish churches, we note that all three added altar rails, and a major enhancement was completed of St. Dominic’s Sanctuary as well; but we will save that result perhaps for a future posting! You are warmly invited to come see this testimony of reverence!

Gratitude

Parishioners in all three of St. Peter’s Churches repeatedly express their gratitude to Father Van Lieshout for his pastoral leadership over his four years pastoring St. Peter’s Parish, yet with more than a touch of sadness as  His Excellency, Bishop Salvatore Matano, has recently named the new Rector of Sacred Heart Cathedral — The Very Reverend Peter David Van Lieshout!

But the people of St. Peter’s Parish are still in excellent and very capable, caring hands, being ‘pastored’ by their new Parochial Administrator, Father Anthony Amato.

60 rotten apples doth half a bushel make

June 16th, 2021, Promulgated by Diane Harris

Who are the bishops fighting for pro-abortion politicians? A closer look | News | Lifesitenews

LifeSiteNews’ excellent reporting of detail warns Catholics of certain dioceses of the risk their souls encounter on a regular basis. LSN also exposes the closing of ranks by a number of Pope Francis’ appointees, as well as the real lack of diocesan breadth among the 60-odd prelates.

See also the CF Ticker for outstanding rant by Fr. James Altman against the 60 ‘imbecile’ bishops who refuse to protect the Eucharist against the sacrilege of reception by pro-abortion politicos. Or click this link: Episcopal Carpet Bombing | The Vortex (churchmilitant.com) 

 

Consider the surprise of LSN’s comment regarding who these 60 bishops are:

“The May 13 letter [Feast of Our Lady of Fatima], obtained by The Pillar,  features heads of a few dozen of America’s roughly 200 dioceses. Upon examination, it appears to be a project of a handful of prominent, pro-LGBT, often abuser-connected bishops. Nearly half of the signatures come from just eight liberal prelates and their auxiliaries, for instance.

Principal authors of the memo include Cardinal Wilton Gregory of Washington, on whose letterhead it was sent, and Cardinal Blase Cupich of Chicago, according to The Pillar. At least one reported signer, Archbishop Dennis Schnurr, has said that he was added without his knowledge, and at least two others have withdrawn their signature, including Cardinal Timothy Dolan of New York.”

The flock does, indeed, face a difficult challenge in trying to obey such bishops. Unless or until there is at least a visible effort to remove them, parishioners in such dioceses can look to the well-publicized activities and words of healthier leadership; i.e. true teachers of the Deposit of the Faith.  It is not difficult to ‘adopt a bishop’ by visiting their websites, reading their letters, subscribing to their newsletters or newspapers, offering financial support and obedience to what is true.

And it is not difficult to find such leaders through reporting of their courageous words, like Abp. Cordileone of San Francisco: US archbishop reaffirms call to deny Holy Communion to pro-abortion Catholic politicians | News | LifeSite (lifesitenews.com)

LifeSiteNews asked us to share their news highlights

May 31st, 2021, Promulgated by Diane Harris
Dear readers,

We have some astoundingly important articles for you today. Let me list some of them.

  1. Vaccine researcher admits ‘big mistake,’ says spike protein is dangerous ‘toxin ‘ The ‘terrifying’ new research reported by a viral immunologist and associate professor at University of Guelph, Ontario finds the vaccine spike proteins are being unexpectedly seen in the bloodstream of some Covid-vaccinated persons. The protein is linked to blood clots, heart and brain damage, and potential risks to nursing babies and fertility. This discovery should lead to an immediate halt to all distribution of Covid “vaccines”.
  2. COVID infection elicits long-lasting immunity, nullifying worldwide vaccine push: study. There is now strong evidence that Covid infection and recovery produces antibody- producing cells that will live for the rest of people’s lives. This and other studies have provided strong evidence, as some scientists long ago told LifeSite, the recovery from Covid infection produces long-lasting and life-long immunity, regardless of the claims of government health authorities and vaccine manufacturers who firmly maintain that recovery from Covid does not provide immunity and that people can be re-infected. Those are outright lies to ensure that everyone is vaccinated. In reality, the hundreds of millions who have been infected and recovered do not and should not be vaccinated for health and safety reasons as explained in the article. This is also explosive news.
  3. Number of COVID cases in Delhi crashes after mass distribution of ivermectin. Mass distribution of Ivermectin would appear to be behind the dramatic fall in COVID-19 cases, both in India and Mexico City. The news about the incredible effectiveness of Ivermectin for treating Covid has been exploding in recent days. What this also means is that the public has been subjected to a massive campaign of deliberate, dangerous misinformation about Covid treatments since the pandemic began.
  4. Scientific censorship in Canada: Anti-lockdown doctors seen as ‘major threat’ to government, physician’s college, media. The actions taken by Dr. Phillips and his colleagues to not only speak truth to the government’s lockdown narrative under the threat of sanction, but ultimately serve the best interest of their patients, are nothing short of heroic.
  5. Another major article from the great Archbishop Viganò: The Great Reset from start to finish – With the pandemic, little by little they told us that isolation, lockdowns, masks, curfews, ‘live-streamed Masses,’ distance-learning, ‘smartworking,’ recovery funds, vaccines, and ‘green passes’ would permit us to come out of the emergency, and, believing in this lie, we renounced the rights and lifestyles that they warned us would never return: ‘Nothing will be the same again.’

There is a lot more. These are some of the most important articles for today. Pass them on to others. They should lead to a revolution of reactions against unnecessary, very harmful, even criminal  government policies that have been imposed on a suffering public over the past 14 months.

In Fear and Trembling…

May 29th, 2021, Promulgated by Diane Harris

A frightening article has appeared in LifeSiteNews, reporting the development of a vaccine administration method using a substrate in the form of a host, closely resembling the host we consume in the Holy Eucharist. Can anyone miss the demonic implications of such a project?

LifeSiteNews Excerpts:

“May 28, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – A team of researchers from the Universities of Minnesota and Texas [and the Mayo Clinic] have developed a polymer ‘wafer,’ which bears a striking resemblance to the host used at a Catholic Mass, that they predict could become the vaccine of the future.  The study, published in the peer reviewed medical journal, Journal of Controlled Release, explained that the membrane on the underside of  the tongue leant itself to absorbing drugs very effectively. [They] already proved that the wafer works with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) proteins, and has been designed with a potential future HIV vaccine in mind.”

In a press release from the University of Minnesota, Chun Wang, one of the study’s authors and associate professor in the university’s College of Science and Engineering, expressed hope that the technology could revolutionise the future of vaccines. “This is just a small step in this long journey,” Wang said. “If we continue this line of work, it can bring us to a point where we will have vaccines — they could be based on DNA, RNA, proteins — that can be stored without refrigeration and easily delivered under the tongue at the sublingual site. They will be quickly disseminated throughout the world because they don’t rely on certain equipment and preservation…. This will be particularly good for low-resource regions of the world, even in America….”

Lifesite continues: “Should it come to be used as a means to deliver COVID-19 vaccines, comparisons would certainly be drawn between what has been described as the ‘church’ of COVID and the Catholic Church’s own sacramental rites.”  Archbishop Viganò, former Papal Nuncio to the United States, described the global adherence to the authoritarian COVID measures as being akin to a religious observance. In light of Pope Francis’s reception of the abortion-tainted injections and subsequent dictate that everyone must take the injection, Archbishop Viganò wrote: ‘The bleak Paul VI Audience Hall has been emblematically chosen as the temple in which to celebrate this new sanitary rite, officiated by ministers of the Covid religion in order to assure, certainly not the salvation of souls, but rather the illusory promise of health for the body…. Viganò earlier described the COVID-19 measures as being part of a ‘pseudo-health regime’ governed by people both inside and outside of the Church who were ‘people corrupt in the soul and sold out to Satan.'”

The LifeSite article concludes with the quote: “The apparent result seems to be a new form of scientism, reincarnated to solve the COVID problem with vaccines to be accepted fideistically (with blind faith), and perhaps nominating itself as the new moral authority of this age, one that demands an act of faith towards the modern religion, the scientific one.” (Continued below picture.)

lifesitenews.com

Suddenly, I saw the fiasco reported in CF last June 25 as possibly far more significant than just a few scaredy-cat priests avoiding COVID by disrespectfully using tweezers on the Holy Eucharist, but rather as almost a pilot test to see if priests and laity would actually accept such a practice to secretly administer vaccine to Catholics who would otherwise refuse the experimental potion. (Put ‘tweezer’ into the CF Search bar to come up with several ‘hits’ from the St. John of Rochester events.)  Acceptance of the use of tweezers on the Body of Christ by clergy and laity removes one obstacle, perhaps the linchpin assumption, that could lead to tricking the laity into accepting a vaccine they don’t want or even their cooperating with administration of the mark of the beast to the unwary. Think. Why else would the progressives want to so closely mimic the host? And who but the evil one would have such a vested interest in attacking God’s flock through the Holy Sacrament? Would Pope Francis even permit consecrating matter tainted by vaccine? Well, he already preached that the Body of Christ (the People of God) should accept the vaccine, and turn themselves over to contamination, didn’t he? It’s not much of a stretch, is it?
