MEDJUGORJE PILGRIMAGE| MANY ARE CALLED YET FEW ARE CHOSEN???


MEDJUGORJE PILGRIMAGE ..MANY ARE CALLED YET FEW ARE CHOSEN???
 

..its true some have boasted they have traveled to MEDJUGORJE numerous times in an effort to hale the spiritual health...

 
..yet the price of air fare can be prohibitive to some making such a foray from far off lands only a dream...

...I am sure Jesus never meant the cost of grace to be so monetarily rare..since in the New Testament it tells us...

 

22:17 And the spirit and the bride say: Come. And he that heareth, let him say: Come. And he that thirsteth, let him come: and he that will, let him take the water of life, freely
-Revelation 22:17 (Doauy Rheims)


..and so contradictory to the Gospel of Christ we have those who are missing out on great graces we are told by Medjugorje Promoters...... and so God is not just since we see there are
those who won’t be going on Pilgrimage to MEDJUGORJE because  of pecuniary reasons...

..and so they have missed out on the gifts of God...



......& so this begs the question is God unfair since we see many cannot afford to travel to Medjugorje... so those people who are economically able are part of the predestined few who are to reap the benfits of MEDJUGORJE?????...we can see that such favouritism  is repugnant to the equanimous heart of God whose grace is rendered freely to all not just those who can afford it....Medjugorje in fact is targeted at a wealthy demographic who as a result of spiritual pride have shunned the true way of the Gospel turning their backs on their neighbour who through the precepts of Charity they should be aiming at winning so that we all should dwell in God univocally  by finding Christ in the poor and ministering in a theologically apposite manner...through the treatise of the Gospel

..here are some of the OTHERS who will not be flying to MEDJUGORJE because they are not chosen by our LADY or called as some fanatical supporters fatuously testify....
 
 


 
[9] For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that being rich he became poor, for your sakes; that through his poverty you might be rich.
-2 Corinthians 8:9  (Douay Rheims)

 
 


 

 
 
..let us find Christ in the poor by supporting our local Church Organizations such as Saint Vincent DePaul or the Knights of Columbus instead of wasting money going on Pilgrimage to unapproved apparition sites such as MEDJUGORJE...amen
 

MARIA DIVINE MERCY CONDEMNED


MARIA DIVINE MERCY CONDEMNED



Like Medjugorje... Maria Divine Mercy has been condemned by the local Ordinary/Authority


 
...APOSTATES INOBEDIENTIAE SCHISMATICS & MATERIAL HERETICS....
....EXCOMMUNICATED A JURE LATAE SENTENTIAE......
 
To wit...regarding Maria Divine Mercy...
 


 
..APOSTATE IRREGULARITATIS SCHISMATIC & FORMAL HERETIC....
...EXCOMMUNICATED A JURE LATAE SENTENTIAE....

 
 
..and so the messages of Mary Divine Mercy just like those from Medjugorje may not be disseminated or promoted to the faithful ....
 
..as one of the fruits of the rejection of authority at the Medjugorje miasma the faithful now have the pernicious false visionary Maria Divine Mercy to pollute the oxygen of faith and confuse the sensus laicorum....
...from the rejection of the precepts of Mother Church we have the schismatics of Medjugorje and now we have the schismatics from Maria Divine mercy...
...excommunicated from the Church a jure latae sententiae by order of their disdain for established traditions they have cut themselves off from the communion of saints and made themselves through delinquent deliberation and irreducible ignorance enemies of the Church militant..by order of their petulant refusal to abide by the voice of God...
 
Vatican 2 Lumen Gentium
 
"This sacred Council teaches that the Bishops, from divine
institution, have taken the place of the Apostles, as the pastors of the
Church: he who hears them, hears Christ; he who spurns them, spurns Christ,
and Him who sent Christ".
 
“20. That divine mission, entrusted by Christ to the apostles, will last until the end of the world,(147) since the Gospel they are to teach is for all time the source of all life for the Church. And for this reason the apostles, appointed as rulers in this society, took care to appoint successors.
For they not only had helpers in their ministry,(4*) but also, in order that the mission assigned to them might continue after their death, they passed on to their immediate cooperators, as it were, in the form of a testament, the duty of confirming and finishing the work begun by themselves,(5*) recommending to them that they attend to the whole flock in which the Holy Spirit placed them to shepherd the Church of God.(148) They therefore appointed such men, and gave them the order that, when they should have died, other approved men would take up their ministry.(6*) Among those various ministries which, according to tradition, were exercised in the Church from the earliest times, the chief place belongs to the office of those who, appointed to the episcopate, by a succession running from the beginning,(7*) are passers-on of the apostolic seed.(8*) Thus, as St. Irenaeus testifies, through those who were appointed bishops by the apostles, and through their successors down in our own time, the apostolic tradition is manifested (9*) and preserved.(10*)
Bishops, therefore, with their helpers, the priests and deacons, have taken up the service of the community, (11*) presiding in place of God over the flock,(12*) whose shepherds they are, as teachers for doctrine, priests for sacred worship, and ministers for governing.(13*) And just as the office granted individually to Peter, the first among the apostles, is permanent and is to be transmitted to his successors, so also the apostles' office of nurturing the Church is permanent, and is to be exercised without interruption by the sacred order of bishops. (14*) Therefore, the Sacred Council teaches that bishops by divine institution have succeeded to the place of the apostles, (15*) as shepherds of the Church, and he who hears them, hears Christ, and he who rejects them, rejects Christ and Him who sent Christ.(149)(16*).....Although the individual bishops do not enjoy the prerogative of infallibility, they nevertheless proclaim Christ's doctrine infallibly whenever, even though dispersed through the world, but still maintaining the bond of communion among themselves and with the successor of Peter, and authentically teaching matters of faith and morals, they are in agreement on one position as definitively to be held.(40*) This is even more clearly verified when, gathered together in an ecumenical council, they are teachers and judges of faith and morals for the universal Church, whose definitions must be adhered to with the submission of faith.(41*)
 
..and so Bishops possess the charism of infallibility when they pronounce doctrine and in the case of Medjugorje the Bishop has acted within the bounds and norms of his office by Church tradition as a governor of this place and so he is required to be obeyed by precept out of charity...and until now messages have not been submitted for his approval before being disseminated to the faithful...and so disobedience reigns and is the spirit and fruit of this place....
 
Luke 10:16
 
He that heareth you, heareth me; and he that despiseth you, despiseth me; and he that despiseth me, despiseth him that sent me.
..now this being said the proponents of Medjugorje and Maria Divine will never let fear of the Lord (temperance) and common sense (prudence) cloud their judgement on discernment of truth (facetious solipsism)….
 
..and so we will have this obdurate refusal of the truth of God and contention within the Church effectively working against the Kingdom of God on earth…amen

MEDJUGORJE PILGRIMAGE AND PRIVATE REVELATIONS....


MEDJUGORJE PUNDITS HAVE DECEIVED THE FAITHFUL

..now one sees if they look through the lense of perspicacious scrutiny blatant extirpation of TRUTH has occured....

..the faithful have been deceived and led into scandal against the Bishop of MEDJUGORJE as well as the Vatican....

According to many proponent sites which promote the MEDJUGORJE pilgrimage phenomenon the dissemination of private revelations does not require any approval from the Church since due to an erroneous interpretation of a 1966 decree it is claimed to wit...


..and so they falsely lead people into a false sense of security...telling the faithful that no permission is necessary for the seers of medjugorje to spread their messages..however this is a lie...



According to a decree in 1966 by the Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine and the Faith, seers do not need ecclesiastical approval for private revelations:

A. Ecclesiastical permission is not required for publication of revelations, visions, miracles or for the
frequenting of non-recognized places of apparitions.

A decree of the "Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine and the Faith" was published in the "Official Acts of
the Holy See" (A.A.S.) 58/16, dated December 29.1966.

Articles 1399 and 2318 of Canon Law are abrogated by this decree.

This decree of abrogation was approved October 14, 1966 by His Holiness the Sovereign Pontiff Paul VI. who ordered at the same time its publication.

This approval by the Holy Father took place during an audience accorded to His Eminence Cardinal Ottaviani,
Pro-Prefect for the "Sacred Congregation for the Doctrine and the Faith."

The decree was made in Rome. November 15, 1966. It bears the signatures of:

A. Cardinal Ottaviani. Pro-Prefect

P. Parente. Secretary

The decree took effect three months after its publication, hence on March 29.1967.

Canon 1399

The Canon 1399 forbade by right the publication of certain books such as those that deal with revelations, visions, prophecies and miracles.

This Canon has been repealed. This means that as far as these publications are concerned, the prohibition is lifted as to their being bound by ecclesiastical law. This means that henceforth: Catholics are permitted without need of Imprimatur, or of NIhil Obstat. or any other permission. to publish accounts of revelations, visions, prophecies and miracles. Of course these publications must not put in danger the Faith or the Morals: this is the general rule which every Catholic must follow in all his actions, even journalists. especially Journalists.

There is hence no longer any prohibition concerning the narrative of seers. be they recognized or not by Ecclesiastical Authority.

All the more reason is it permitted for Catholics to frequent places of Apparitions, even those not recognized by the Ordinaries of the diocese or by the Holy Father Granted that the Catholic visitors who frequent these places must respect the Faith and the Morals. However, they are not subject to any ecclesiastical discipline, not even for their public prayers.

Permission is required only for the celebration of Holy Mass or any other religious service.

Canon 2318

Canon 2318 carried penalties against those who violated the taws of censure and prohibition.

This Canon is abrogated since 1966. None can incur ecclesiastical censure for frequenting places of Apparitions even those not recognized by the Ordinaries of dioceses or by the Holy Father.

Also. "those who would have incurred the censures treated in Canon 2318 will be like absolved by the very fact of the abrogation of this Canon." (Cardinal Ottaviani)

So the visionaries do not need the permission of the Bishop of Mostar to make public their private revelations


…HOWEVER THIS IS MANIFESTLY FALSE!!!!


To claim as many proponents of the medjugorje phenomenon do that the BISHOP has no authority is formally schismatic and if voluntarily or involuntarily believed for that matter causes one to become excommunicated from the Church a jure latae sententiae..which means by transgressing the law of the Church by letter through a misdeed in an ipso facto manner which states…


CCC-2089Incredulity is the neglect of revealed truth or the willful refusal to assent to it. "Heresy is the obstinate post-baptismal denial of some truth which must be believed with divine and catholic faith, or it is likewise an obstinate doubt concerning the same; apostasy is the total repudiation of the Christian faith; schism is the refusal of submission to the Roman Pontiff or of communion with the members of the Church subject to him."


…members of the Church in communion with the Roman Pontiff would include the Bishop of MEDJUGORJE…


..when one excommunicates oneself in such a way they remove the efficacy of grace as it flows from the sacramental life..in effect it cuts one off from the living water of the Church..true such an a jure excommunication can be removed through confession however if this is not recognized the state of one’s soul in this frame of being is effectively stultified..stunted so to speak..and places one in grave danger of being cut off from eternal salvation by the sin of presumption which is a sin against the HOLY GHOST…


The correct rendering of the Church regarding the dissemination of private revelation falls under Canon 823 and 824 which call for the review of any private revelation to fall under the jurisdiction of the local Bishop the Bishop’s Conference or the Vatican itself…


Now there never has been any permission given at Medjugorje for anyone to spread these messages..this is obdurate refusal to abide by the Canons of the Church and so results in schism and heresy…


The correct rendering of the stance of the Church regarding private revelation is as follows…


Publication of PRIVATE revelation

On October 23, 1995 the CDF clarified about private revelations:

With regard to the spreading of texts of presumed personal revelations, the Congregation makes it clear that:

1. The interpretation by some people of a decision approved by Paul VI on October 14, 1966, and promulgated on November 15 of the same year, by virtue of which writings and messages coming from presumed revelations might be freely spread within the Church IS ABSOLUTELY NOT VALID. This decision actually referred to the 'Abolition of the Index of Banned Books,' and said that - once relative censures were lifted - the moral obligation in any case not to spread or read those writings which endangered faith and morals still remained.

2. A reminder, therefore, that for the diffusion of texts of presumed private revelations, the norm of the Code in force, Canon 823, para 1, which gives pastors the right 'to demand that the writings of the faithful which touch faith or morals be submitted to their own judgment before publication', remains valid.

3. Presumed supernatural revelations and writings which regard them are in the first instance subject to the judgment of the diocesan bishop and, in particular cases, to that of the episcopal conference and the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith.

It is a misconception that the faithful do not need permission to publish alleged private revelations since the abolition of Canon 1399 and 2318 of the former Canonical Code by Pope Paul the VI in AAS 58 (1966) on October 14, 1966. The truth is that Pope Paul VI only abolished the Index Librorum Prohibitorum, and that Canon 823 and 824 of the current 1983 Code of Canon Law define the right and duty of the bishop to censor all material concerning faith or morals.

The canonization of a mystic or an imprimatur given to a book of revelations do not mean a private revelation is authentic, because the church does not pronounce on alleged revelations when it pronounces on the holiness of an individual and because the Imprimatur only guarantees that a book is free from all doctrinal and moral errors



..let us lead each other by the light of truth so that we may abide one another in the grace of God.....amen

MEDJUGORJE VERDICT

MEDJUGORJE THE DEADLY SINS: PRIDE

 
 
Pride is the Excessive love  of one's own excellence, for which Satan was Damned. It is ordinarily accounted one of the Seven Vices (Capital Sins). rebel_angels3.jpg (14276 bytes) Saint Thomas, however, endorsing the appreciation of Saint Gregory, considers it the Queen of all Vices, and puts Vainglory in its place as one of the Deadly Sins. In giving it this pre-eminence he takes it in a most formal and complete signification. He understands it to be that frame of mind in which a Man, through the love of his own worth, aims to withdraw himself from Subjection to Almighty God, and sets at naught the Commands of Superiors.

It is a Species of Contempt of  God and of those who bear HIS COMMISSION. Regarded in this way, it is of course a Mortal Sin of a Most Heinous sort. Indeed Saint Thomas rates it in this sense as one of the Blackest of Sins. By it the Creature refuses to stay within his Essential Orbit; he turns his back upon God, not through Weakness or Ignorance, but solely because in his Self-Exaltation he is minded not to submit. His attitude has something Satanic in it, and is probably not-often verified in Human Beings.

A less Atrocious kind of Pride is that which Impels one to make much of oneself Unduly and without Sufficient Warrant, without however any disposition to cast off the Dominion of the CREATOR. This may happen, according to Saint Gregory, either:

littlegoldcross.gif (962 bytes) because a man regards himself as the source of such advantages as he may discern in himself,
littlegoldcross.gif (962 bytes) or because, whilst admitted that GOD has bestowed them, he reputes this to have been in response to his own MERITSMerits,
littlegoldcross.gif (962 bytes) or because he attributes to himself GIFTS which he has not;
littlegoldcross.gif (962 bytes) or, finally, because even when these are real, he unreasonably looks to be put-ahead of others.

Supposing the conviction indicated in the First two Instances to be seriously entertained, the Sin would be a Grievous One and would have the added Guilt of Heresy. Ordinarily, however, this Erroneous Persuasion does not exist; it is the Demeanor that is Reprehensible. The Last two cases, generally speaking, are not held to constitute Grave Offences. This is not true, however, whenever a Man's Arrogance is the occasion of Great Harm to another, as, for instance, his undertaking the Duties of a Physician without the Requisite Knowledge. The same Judgment is to be Rendered when Pride has given rise to such Temper of  SOUL that in the pursuit of its Object, one is not deterred by anything, even Mortal Sin.

Vainglory, Ambition, and Presumption are commonly enumerated as the Offspring Vices of Pride, because they are well-adapted to serve its Inordinate Aims. Of themselves, they are Venial Sins unless some Extraneous Consideration puts them in the ranks of Grievous Transgressions. It should be noted that Presumption does not here stand for the Sin against HOPE. It means the Desire to Discern what exceeds one's Capacity

-CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA

...and of course after reading the above excerpt from the Catholic Encyclopedia it becomes readily evident that such a spirit of Pride encapsulates the spirituality at MEDJUGORJE...the outward piety at this place only serves to cloak the hypocritical interior disposition of the adherents...we readily see contempt of the local Ordinary and since he is the one who bears the seal of Christ's Commission we see that pride is the impetus which fuels so much disobedience and spiritual sanctimony at this place....as well we see that people here are so conceited as to claim they have requisite knowledge above the Authority of the local Ordinary to which Jesus has granted Authority to discern and so this is a grave sort of pride which will be the occaision of harm and scandal among the faithful which may lead them into incredulity of Church precepts regarding established magisterial powers..which may end in schism...let us strive for humility so that we may avoid pride by undertaking to learn more about the  pursuit of virtue ...amen

MEDJUGORJE APPARITIONS OF THE VIRGIN MARY the CHURCH EXSCINDED


MEDJUGORJE APPARITIONS-LIKE A BAT OUT OF HELL

....the signification of the phrase like a bat out of hell..to appear suddenly out of thin air with a rapid darting frenzied uncontrollable haste....




Like a bat out of hell- adv. Phr.-very quickly, “once all the bats were confined in hell.They still have wings like the devil.One day someone left the gates open and they quickly darted out and escaped to earth...” popular folklore...indeed the bat is a noctural animal and so the metaphor serves to represent the false spirituality of medjugorje which is turned away from the light and abides by the darkness of our own fallen natures..



..the purpose of using bats as a metaphor for false spirituality does in no way seek to villify these industrious creatures who serve a relevant purpose in nature as do all God's created things...

...as a result of the false ecumenism directly related to the subjective erroneous interpretation of the lay directives of Vatican 2 ..the charismatic movement appearedwith a new intemperate frenzied spirituality which was indeed hard to reign...


...subsequently many false apparitions have been able to gain a foothold within the imaginations and affections of the faithful...without the precepts of practical Authority guarding the gates of the reason we have seen a proliferation of the enlightened human spirit of rationalism threatening the Authority of the Church and the apostolic succession which Jesus instituted in the Great Commission....


..and so we have a poor expression of the prudential mode of being among the body of the faithful which has allowed error to supplant true Church teaching effectively clouding the mind of the sensus laicorum and leading it into a false sense of security...




..indeed we have formal and material schismatics who believe they are resting safely within the bosom of the Church yet due to the messages purveyed by false visionairies who have no Church approbation we see that obedience to Church officials has been ignored....


..and so we have people praying the rosary fasting and wrapt in adoration while openly excommunicating themselves a jure latae sententiae.. "the culprit will be excommunicated at once, by the fact itself [statim, ipso facto]". which means by breaking defined laws of the Church... to wit..such people fall into the sin of indredulity..and all their good works become a mockery of the Church rather than an undergirding of truth...in short they do everything for themselves and for their own profit just as a spiritual merchant and they do not work out of charity for Jesus and his communion of the saints....


From the Catholic Encyclopedia


Formerly a man was rightly considered a schismatic when he disregarded the authority of his own bishop; hence the words of St. Jeromequoted above. Before him St. Cyprianhad said: "It must be understood that the bishop is in the Church and the Church in the bishop and he is not in the Church who is not with the bishop" (Epist., lxvi, 8).


SCHISMATIC- from Catechism of the Catholic Church 2089


2089 Incredulity is the neglect of revealed truth or the willful refusal to assent to it. "Heresy is the obstinate post-baptismal denial of some truth which must be believed with divine and catholic faith, or it is likewise an obstinate doubt concerning the same; apostasy is the total repudiation of the Christian faith; schismis the refusal of submission to the Roman Pontiff or of communion with the members of the Church subject to him."


….at Medjugorje there is definite voluntary in some cases and involuntary in other cases doubt concerning the Authority of the local Ordinary who is in communion with the Pontiff to guide and protect the faithful indeed the Catechism tells us concerning doubt…


2088 The first commandment requires us to nourish and protect our faith with prudence and vigilance, and to reject everything that is opposed to it. There are various ways of sinning against faith:

Voluntary doubtabout the faith disregards or refuses to hold as true what God has revealed and the Church proposes for belief. Involuntary doubt refers to hesitation in believing, difficulty in overcoming objections connected with the faith, or also anxiety aroused by its obscurity. If deliberately cultivated doubt can lead to spiritual blindness.



ARCHANGEL RAPHAEL

...since spiritual blindness is a symptom of latent pride we see that direct disobedience to prelates whose authority is vested in them for our good is a direct insult to God and will result in a loss of God’s friendship since lack of obedience shows lack of trust qua lack of faith therefore we must guard ourselves from error in order to help God establish a unified Church militant ...

.....let us pray to the Archangel Raphael to heal those in spiritual blindness..just as Raphael healed the blind Tobit and so lead us on the true path of God's righteousness...amen

MEDJUGORJE APPARITIONS OF THE QUEEN OF PEACE??


MEDJUGORJE APPARITIONS OF THE VIRGIN MARY??
 
 

 ....now many have claimed supernatural visions of the Virgin Mary at MEDJUGORJE...however according to the Church it cannot be ascertained that we are dealing with supernatural manifestations...according to two local Ordinaries it may be duly noted that they have cautioned the faithful against any prevarications pertaining to Church directive which may be attributed to  the Queen of Heaven...the reasonable person must if they are a sincere lover of God and his Church realize that nothing supernatural is occurring at MEDJUGORJE apart from the normal effects of the action of grace as it proceeds from the efficacy of the sacraments of the Church...

 

....the presence of the sacraments does not validate any apparition..only sound discernment can do this...

 

....the presence of the sacraments as a pastoral redolence is a direct result of the exaggerated sense of curiosity owing to the deceptions and the clear disobedience of some who have chosen to go against clear directives of the spiritual superiors at this place who have asked that all messages of the apparent Madonna be handed over for review before being disseminated to the faithful..yet this has never been done which is a direct transgression of Canon 823 & 824 regarding the dissemination of private revelations...and so we can clearly see that the virtue of HUMILITY is not being nurtured by the spirit of MEDJUGORJE..we see a false humility which seeks to exhalt itself over the agents of God and such a spirituality is anti-Christ...

 

..to wit the hall mark of HOLY HUMILITY is subjection to the precepts of our spiritual superiors...so as to ensure that  holy precepts should frame our actions and influence the movement of our will towards the things of God so we may be conformed in unity and charity....so that we may see the will of God in the will of his agents..namely his Bishops and prelates...

 

..and so let us guard ourselves from false humility which ever seeks its itself and the will of itself and ever loathes the rebukes of others for fear that it must look inward and see the myriad faults..since this is the true path of the cross of self-mortification...which Jesus speaks of in the Gospel....

 

..let us see what the wise spiritual doyens say about the importance of the virtue of HUMILITY..

 

 
He does not show humility who accuses himself (for who will not accept rebukes from himself?), but he who, being rebuked by another, does not decrease his love toward him.


-Saint John of the Ladder

 


 
"The virtue of humility consists in keeping oneself within one's own bounds, not reaching out to things above one, but submitting to one's superior"

 
“The vices opposed to humility are,

  1. pride: by reason of defect, and
  2. a too great obsequiousness or abjection of oneself, which would be an excess of humility. This might easily be derogatory to a man's office or holy character; or it might serve only to pamper pride in others, by unworthy flattery, which would occasion their sins of tyranny, arbitrariness, and arrogance.”

-Saint Thomas Aquinas

 

 
Nothing is more opposed to God than pride, for self-deification is concealed in it, its own nothingness or sin. Thus more than anything humility is acceptable to God, which considers itself nothing, and attributes all goodness, honor, and glory to God alone. Pride does not accept grace, because it is full of itself, while humility easily accepts grace, because it is free from itself, and from all that is created. God creates out of nothing. As long as we think that we can offer something of ourselves, He does not begin His work in us. Humility is the salt of virtue. As salt gives flavor to food, so humility gives perfection to virtue. Without salt, food goes bad easily, and without humility, virtue is easily spoiled by pride, vainglory, impatience - and it perishes. There is a humility which a man gains by his own struggles: knowing his own insufficiency, accusing himself for his failings, not allowing himself to judge others. And there is a humility into which God leads a man through the things that happen to him: allowing him to experience afflictions, humiliations, and deprivations.


-Saint Philaret of Moscow



“God resisteth the proud, and giveth his grace to the humble”

-Saint James (James 4:6)



 
“Learn of me, because I am meek, and humble of heart: and you shall find rest to your souls”

-Saint Matthew ( Matthew 11:29)



 
“Publicly proclaiming oneself a sinner yet obstinately nurturing a bad opinion of an Agent of God without trying to make remediation through obeyance of a precept  is the worse form of hypocrisy and arrogance…since by doing so one betrays the cloak of false humility which covers the interior disposition of inordinate self love…thus perpetuating the spirit of the Pharisees..”
