MEDJUGORJE...IVAN TO RESUME WITNESS ....DISOBEDIENCE & SCANDAL...

MEDJUGORJE...IVAN TO RESUME WITNESS OF DISOBEDIENCE


...according to a new fact of the matter in the ongoing MEDJUGORJE saga...the public sees more spurning and rebellion coming out of the MEDJUGORJE camp...


..of course this is not the spirit of Mary most humble..to be humble one has to be obedient to rightful authority...

...the CDF has antecedently issued to the BISHOPS of U.S.A..a directive that no public ceremonies involving MEDJUGORJE should be undertaken ..however this directive has been flippantly ignored...so pitting the CHURCH and its believers against themselves...

...from the divine doctor one sees the wages of DISOBEDIENCE to established CHURCH authority...

..MORTAL SIN...


a mortal sin is one that is contrary to charitywhich is the cause of spiritual life. Now by charity we love God and our neighbor. The charity of God requires that we obey His commandments, as stated above (Question 24, Article 12). Therefore to be disobedient to thecommandments of God is a mortal sin, because it is contrary to the love of God.
Again, the commandments of God contain the precept of obedience to superiors. Wherefore also disobedience to the commands of a superior is a mortal sin, as being contrary to the love of God, according to Romans 13:2, "He that resisteth the power, resisteth the ordinance of God." It is also contrary to the love of our neighbor, as it withdraws from the superior who is our neighbor the obedience that is his due.

...of course one must concede that willful disregard of a directive from the CDF which is the proper organ of CHURCH itself must be considered a mortal sin...

...the type of witness we have here is witness to persecution of CHRIST...such witness is a cause of scandal and a sure sign that the spirit of man instigated by the spirit of the devil is the cause..rather than the humble and pure spirit of GOD...let us all be aware of false prophets....amen...

All things temporal are annexed to spiritual things, as to their end, wherefore it is lawful to sell temporal things, but their relation to spiritual things cannot be the matter of a lawful sale.

because sale is opposed to the source of spiritual things, since they flow from the gratuitous will of God. Wherefore Our Lord said (Matthew 10:8): "Freely have you received, freely give."
Therefore by buying or selling a spiritual thing, a man treats God and divine things with irreverence, and consequently commits a sin of irreligion.

-summa theologica Thomas Aquinas

.....of course the matter at hand here is the relation between the price of admission and the commodity of or the value of the VIRGIN MARY'S blessing...in this case we see the sin of the simony since the proper dispensation has not been received...the CHURCH herself has never verified the authenticity of the blessing of the VIRGIN MARY...as well this site has no authority to sell blessings of the saints..since they are not Church sanctioned .....

Items may be sold; blessings may not. Any blessed item that is sold should be sold for its intrinsic value apart from the blessing. To sell the blessing itself would amount to simony.
The Catechism of the Catholic Church addresses this:
Simony is defined as the buying or selling of spiritual things. To Simon the magician, who wanted to buy the spiritual power he saw at work in the apostles, St. Peter responded: “Your silver perish with you, because you thought you could obtain God’s gift with money!” Peter thus held to the words of Jesus: “You received without pay, give without pay.” It is impossible to appropriate to oneself spiritual goods and behave toward them as their owner or master, for they have their source in God. One can receive them only from him, without payment. ...CATHOLIC ANSWERS APOLOGIST...JIM BLACKBURN

MEDJUGORJE | THE FIVE STONES...SEMI-PELAGIANISM....

MEDJUGORJE | THE FIVE STONES...SEMI-PELAGIANISM...


...according to the seers of MEDJUGORJE...the alleged apparition of the Virgin Mary...has given us valuable tools that we may gain salvation through our own effort...such a formula for salvation reeks of the heretical notions adopted by the Semi-Pelagians...this heretical group was popular in the fourth and fifth century in France...and among the false beliefs this movement presented were three compromises to the workings of grace...


(1) the beginning of faith (though not faith itself or its increase) could be accomplished by the human will alone, unaided by grace;

 (2) in a loose sense, the sanctifying grace man receives from God can be merited by natural human effort, unaided by actual grace; 

(3) once a man has been justified, he does not need additional grace from God in order to persevere until the end of life


...we see from the message of MEDJUGORJE and its Five Stones of Salvation..that there is a parity between the two cults...when the Virgin of MEDJUGORJE tells us that we must pray the rosary, fast, read the bible, confess our sins monthly and receive Communion frequently...so by following this formula we are assured salvation..of course..this is false...it is evident that such a formula raises the work of human wills above the efficacy and buttressing power of grace...



...what good is Eucharist and penance without a proper examination of conscience, and what good is fasting without mercy, indeed...what good is any formula without proper instruction in the faith...as well a soul must live the Gospel in the active life...in order that it may defend itself from spiritual pride and gluttony...

..so one sees with -out the infused virtues of the spirit and the acquired virtues of living the Gospel..one cannot attain salvation by following a formula...for to say so is simply purveying the error of Semi-Pelagianism by telling the credulous faithful that natural human effort may merit the prize of more grace from God..such a belief undermines the omnipotence of God..and stays the power of coercion into the hands of the creature...let us all guard ourselves from false prophets...through the exercise of prudence....amen

MARIA DIVINE MERCY| LATEST MESSAGE..FALSE...THE CHURCH IS INDEFECTIBLE....

MARIA DIVINE MERCY| LATEST MESSAGES...ANTINOMOUS...


...all the Catholic faithful properly formed and educated in the tenets of the faith will readily understand that the Church cannot fail...for it is the mystical body of Christ..and so the Church itself is indefectible...

..since as Thomas Aquinas tells...



Head and members form as it were one and the same mystical person. (ST III Q.48 a.2)

...and...

due to this union of Christ with his members..one must understand that by order of institution the Church is indefectible...since Augustine bears testimony to this fact...



The Church will totter when her foundation totters. But how shall Christ totter? ... as long as Christ does not totter, neither shall the Church totter in 103, 2, 5)


..yet according to a most recent message from the false seer MARIA DIVINE MERCY..


...CONDEMNED BY THE ARCH BISHOP OF DUBLIN...

.we are told by Jesus himself that the Church will fall...and so if one applies right reason to the analysis of the message one will readily see that this message is FALSE...

..according to the Papal Encyclical SATIS COGNITUM of Pope Leo XIII...


The indefectibility of the Church is a gift from Christ to the Church by which she is preserved to the end of the age as the "institution of salvation". She can neither perish from the world nor depart from "her teaching, her constitution and her liturgy". (Ott, 296) This gift of indefectibility is essential to Christ's purpose in establishing His Church as the means of continuing His saving work to all the nations and peoples of the world until the end of the age. Regarding this purpose, Pope Leo XIII wrote, "What did Christ the Lord achieve by the foundation of the Church; what did He wish? This: He wished to delegate to the Church the same office and the same mandate which He had Himself received from the Father in order to continue them." (Satis cognitum, 4)

....yet the message below tells us the opposite...we are told by Jesus that his Church will be destroyed..and this contrary to the teaching of the Popes...

My dearly beloved daughter, I reveal to you today one of the greatest mysteries of the end times.
The sequence of events leading up to the last day is akin to My Crucifixion, which will be re-enacted in every stage, right up to the day when I will come again to salvage the world.
When I was in the Garden of Gethsemane, I was isolated, alone and grief-stricken, because very few believed that I spoke the Truth. My Love for My Father sustained Me, but My Love for humanity meant that the torment which I endured, including mental and physical torture at the hands of Satan, was accepted by Me, albeit with tremendous effort.,
How I suffered in that Garden. How I begged My Father for relief. How heartbroken I was when the evil one showed Me how the world would end. He taunted Me, laughed at Me, spat at Me and scoffed, when he showed Me the souls of My enemies, who would, one day, tell the world that they served My Church.  This was like being shown My beloved apostles, denounce Me and then pledge their allegiance to Satan.He showed Me the souls of the faithful, whose voices would be deemed to be that of radical bigots and who would be accused of terrible crimes. I saw those who said that they represented Me, persecute the prophets and the visionaries, as well as those who would seek their destruction. I had to endure great darkness when I saw the world, which I once inhabited, become not only blind as to Who I Am, but who would never have been told about Me.
I was thrown to the ground, My Face pressed into the soil, kicked, whipped and My clothes torn off by Satan. He tormented Me, beyond My human capacity and under extreme endurance of the physical body. Despite this, I was given the strength to continue to face My inevitable Crucifixion, which terrified Me. My Love for man, however, superseded My human fear.
My sacred servants, who will refuse to denounce Me, will also suffer a similar isolation. They will be disgraced and cast aside. Their isolation, will not be condemned by My Church, because of fear within it.
When I was scourged, those who carried out the most cruel and vile acts upon My Body rejoiced. I was deemed to be a wicked man and a false prophet and so they scourged Me. They boasted of their holiness, their righteousness and their knowledge of Holy Scriptures, while they vilified My Body. They failed to accept the prophecy that their Messiah would come to save them. Those who will proclaim My Second Coming will endure the same treatment.
When they stripped Me naked, they wanted to humiliate Me further and so they dressed Me in a red rag that barely covered Me, to further desecrate My Body. But, when they plunged thorns, like needles, into My Head, they declared that the Son of Man was an imposter and therefore not worthy of acceptance. They tore My Eye out of its socket, but the pain was inconsequential, compared with their declaration, that I was not accepted as the Saviour of God’s children.
All of these things are to be re-enacted soon, when I, Jesus Christ, as Head of My Church, will be discarded and My Crown taken away from Me. A false leader, the antichrist, will be substituted as My Head, and unlike the Sacrificial Lamb, he will wear a glittering crown of gold. Beneath this façade will lie a rotten core, and along with the lies, falsities, blasphemies and heresies that will pour from his mouth, he will deliver everything as if it were like the honey, which pours from the honeybee’s hive. Be under no illusion, the beast will have a beautiful appearance, his voice soothing, his demeanour grand. He will be handsome and appealing, but out of his mouth will pour venom that will poison your soul.
When I carried My Cross, I could not do this on My Own. It was so heavy that I could only take one step at a time and walk very slowly. My Body was torn in many places and because of the Blood loss I fainted many times, so weak was I. I was blinded in one eye and the thorns on My Head meant that the Blood, which poured from My Wounds, had to be continually wiped away by those who walked alongside Me. Otherwise, I would never have been able to take another step forward.
The same will be true of My Remnant Church, the last stable of My Body. They will march, just like I did, with a heavy cross, but despite the pain, the abuse, the suffering and the bloodshed, they will endure until the end. For My Precious Blood will flow over their souls in tandem with My Own Sorrow – My Own Crucifixion.  And, on the day, when they will no longer hold the daily Sacrifices of the Mass, My Presence will become extinct.  When the day arrives for My Body – My Church on earth – to be finally plundered, crucified and desecrated, all will change forever.
It is My Body, My Church, while still alive in the world, which sustains life. But when it is destroyed, life, as you know it, will be over. When My Church is betrayed, sacrificed and discarded, just like My Crucifixion, this will mark the end of time.

Your Jesus

....since we the faithful are told in the above message that the Church will be DESTROYED...we know from the testimony of the Church Fathers that this message is not reconcilable with TRUTH..and so it must rejected as ERROR...let us move ahead cautiously in unity and follow the magisterium of the Church in matters of Private Revelation...amen

MEDJUGORJE | UTILITARIANISM IN VIENNA....

MEDJUGORJE | UTILITARIANISM IN VIENNA....


“Thank you to Our Lady of Medjugorje who has changed so many lives in the world for the better.” 
Cardinal Christoph Schönborn
Vienna, November 16, 2014




...According  To Cardinal Christoph Schonborn...a staunch advocate for the MEDJUGORJE phenomenon...he has been quoted in public forums...as affirming the supernaturality of MEDJUGORJE...yet..the Vatican itself has never affirmed the supernaturality of the visions..and so this is an occaison of scandal..since it leads others to have an incorrect understanding of the Church position on the phenomenon of MEDJUGORJE..and so fosters sin against the virtue of obedience...

..for we see...



According to St. Thomas (II-II:43:1scandal is a word or action evil in itself, which occasions another's spiritual ruin. It is a word or action, that is either an external act—for an internal act can have no influence on the conduct of another—or the omission of an external act, because to omit what one should do is equivalent to doing what is forbidden; it must be evil in itself, or in appearance; this is the interpretation of the words of St. Thomasminus rectum. It is not the physical cause of a neighbor's sin, but only the moral cause, or occasion; further, this moralcausality may be understood in a strict sense, as when one orders, requests, or advises another to commit thesin (this is strictly inductive scandal, which some call co-operation in a broad sense), or in a large sense, as when a person without being directly concerned in the sin nevertheless exercises a certain influence on the sin of his neighbor, e.g. by committing such a sin in his presence (this is inductive scandal in a broad sense)

....also...

..we have the concept of Utilitarianism at play here in the Cardinal's words...since the Church itself has cautioned us not to do evil so that a good may come out of it...and by disregarding the official Church proclamations of not allowing the dispersion of any messages concerning MEDJUGORJE to be verified as supernatural we see open defiance of Church norms...

..since the Church in the Catechism has condemned the error and notion of Utilitarianism...



CCC 1755 A morally good act requires the goodness of the object, of the end, and of the circumstances together. An evil end corrupts the action, even if the object is good in itself (such as praying and fasting "in order to be seen by men").

The object of the choice can by itself vitiate an act in its entirety. There are some concrete acts - such as fornication - that it is always wrong to choose, because choosing them entails a disorder of the will, that is, a moral evil.

CCC 1756 It is therefore an error to judge the morality of human acts by considering only the intention that inspires them or the circumstances (environment, social pressure, duress or emergency, etc.) which supply their context. There are acts which, in and of themselves, independently of circumstances and intentions, are always gravely illicit by reason of their object; such as blasphemy and perjury, murder and adultery. One may not do evil so that good may result from it.

....we the faithful must have recourse to prudence and also eschew the error of Utilitarianism..for if we reach a good end through a bad action then we cancel out the good...and when we destroy the notion of good without justification..then we do not seek GOD out as he is in himself..since GOD is lacking in evil...and to do evil in order to gain GOD..is a paradox..and so in the end..we may  fool ourselves into mistaking concord of wills for peace..and Quietism for Contemplation...let us all examine ourselves according to the Norms of Mother Church ......and seek unity...amen

MEDJUGORJE | UPDATE....THE TREES OF VIRTUE...

MEDJUGORJE....THE TREES OF VIRTUE....



.....according to the tenets of Catholic Faith we must walk in faith and virtue...without prudence to guide the faculties and appetites of the soul our frailties make us falter..without obedience to the spiritual precepts of our superiors our will cannot be inclined to God..since God is the one who through the Holy Spirit has moved our superiors to act in his stead...when our superiors act within reason and do not condone sin then we are bound by the vows of Baptism and Confirmation to obey without enmity or rancor...for not to do so would allow spiritual poison to fester within the soul..thereby cutting off the living waters of grace...

...as we hear it told from the Prophet Ezekiel.....47:1-12



The vision of the holy waters issuing out from under the temple: the borders of the land to be divided among the twelve tribes.
[1] And he brought me again to the gate of the house, and behold waters issued out from under the threshold of the house toward the east: for the forefront, of the house looked toward the east: but the waters came down to the right side of the temple to the south part of the altar. [2]And he led me out by the way of the north gate, and he caused me to turn to the way without the outward gate to the way that looked toward the east: and behold there ran out waters on the right side. [3] And when the man that had the line in his hand went out towards the east, he measured a thousand cubits: and he brought me through the water up to the ankles. [4] And again he measured a thousand, and he brought me through the water up to the knees. [5] And he measured a thousand, and he brought me through the water up to the loins. And he measured a thousand, and it was a torrent, which I could not pass over: for the waters were risen so as to make a deep torrent, which could not be passed over.
[1] Waters: These waters are not to be understood literally (for there were none such that flowed from the temple); but mystically, of the baptism of Christ, and of his doctrine and his grace: the trees that grow on the banks are Christian virtues: the fishes are Christians, that spiritually live in and by these holy waters, the fishermen are the apostles, and apostolic preachers: the fenny places, where there is no health, are such as by being out of the church are separated from these waters of life.
[6] And he said to me: Surely thou hast seen, O son of man. And he brought me out, and he caused me to turn to the bank of the torrent. [7] And when I had turned myself, behold on the bank of the torrent were very many trees on both sides. [8] And he said to me: These waters that issue forth toward the hillocks of sand to the east, and go down to the plains of the desert, shall go into the sea, and shall go out, and the waters shall be healed. [9] And every living creature that creepeth whithersoever the torrent shall come, shall live: and there shall be fishes in abundance after these waters shall come thither, and they shall be healed, and all things shall live to which the torrent shall come. [10] And the fishers shall stand over these waters, from Engaddi even to Engallim there shall be drying of nets: there shall be many sorts of the fishes thereof, as the fishes of the great sea, a very great multitude:
[11] But on the shore thereof, and in the fenny places they shall not be healed, because they shall be turned into saltpits. [12] And by the torrent on the banks thereof on both sides shall grow all trees that bear fruit: their leaf shall not fall off, and their fruit shall not fail: every month shall they bring forth firstfruits, because the waters thereof shall issue out of the sanctuary: and the fruits thereof shall be for food, and the leaves thereof for medicine
.....and so one sees mystically...that the fruits of virtue will never fail...since they will yield up fruit every month..which is to say corresponding to the 12 gifts of the Holy Spirit...charity, joy, generosity, peace, patience, goodness, self-control, chastity, modesty, gentleness, kindness, modesty...this is why Ezekiel tells us that each month the gifts of the spirit shall yield their virtues...which is to be taken in a mystical  sense and not as a span of measure...now if we do not have Obedience..we have obstacles to sanctified grace within..since as Jesus told his Apostles in scripture....

He that heareth you, heareth me; and he that despiseth you, despiseth me; and he that despiseth me, despiseth him that sent me

Luke 10:16

....and so we say that those who willfully ignore directives from the CDF and the Bishops in charge of the MEDJUGORJE phenomenon...such people willfully reject God...who has deigned that such Bishops impose their precepts for the safety of the faithful....we may say that such people may display virtue due to the actions of the phenomenon at MEDJUGORJE..however such people display only a character of a figure of virtue..in an outward sense...but inwardly they are void of such virtues and gifts since they willfully disobey Church directive by disseminating said messages as supernatural in public forums....amen....

MEDJUGORJE | UPDATE..MARY THE MODEL CONTEMPLATIVE...


MEDJUGORJE | UPDATE..MARY THE MODEL CONTEMPLATIVE...

And they came with haste; and they found Mary and Joseph, and the infant lying in the manger. [17] And seeing, they understood of the word that had been spoken to them concerning this child. [18] And all that heard, wondered; and at those things that were told them by the shepherds. [19] But Mary kept all these words, pondering them in her heart. [20] And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God, for all the things they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.

LUKE 2:16-20



…anyone who is beholden of the spirit of discernment will understand that the Virgin Mary herself was a model of the contemplative…for the Gospel itself is a witness to this fact…Mary ever meek, humble & quick not to dare silence…ever kept the mysteries of Christ hidden under the mantle of her inner faculties of imagination and intellect…so she was wont to speak..lest she betrayed the hidden life of Christ…

..however  one sees the OPPOSITE in the phenomenon of MEDJUGORJE..we have a Mary who is not the model of contemplation..but the model of an astute quidnunc..which is to say from the early days of the history of the phenomenon..Mary was always industrious in the ways of chatter-hearts fault finders and gossipers…for she did not keep her promise of ending the alleged apparitions after three days..but continued on apparently to this day..in an apparently aeviternal mode of insipid heraldry…

…for we hear it told from the visionaries themselves in tape recordings and from interviews that the Gospa was to appear only three more times..yet apparently the Gospa had a defect of intention for she did act evidently through an acute mental mendacity by telling the children one thing and proceeding consequently in the contrary…



·         Mica IVANKOVIC: …Then I told them to ask if the Blessed Virgin Mary would be willing to appear in the church. They responded that she smiled and said that she would. Then Mirjana asked at what time. I didn’t ask them this. The Gospa said: “At the same time.”

And she asked more. How many [more] times she was going to appear to them. They said in unison: “Three times.” Then Mirjana-I don’t remember now whether it was Mirjana or somebody else-asked [her] to leave a sign.

JAKOV: That was me.


..from the HIDDEN SIDE OF MEDJUGORJE pg 361...from taped interviews at the BISHOP OF MOSTAR office...


·         Mica IVANKOVIC: Then only Mirjana asked: “At what time?” She [the Gospa] said: “At the same time!” Then Mirjana asked again how many more times she would appear. She said: “Three more times!”

? (most probably Father KOSIR): Who said that?

ONE of the visionaries: The Gospa.

? (most probably Father KOSIR): Which of you said that?

MIRJANA (most probably): I.

?:… (incomprehensible). Ivo Sivric’s remark: Everyone is talking at once.

Father ZOVKO: Well, this interests me. “Three more times!” Well, when is all this going to end?

ALL the visionaries (in unison): On Friday.

Mica IVANKOVIC: Later on they said: “On Friday.”

Father ZOVKO: Where is it going to end on Friday?

JAKOV: In the church.

MIRJANA: Except perhaps if the Gospa tells us that she would prefer to appear on the hillside on the last day…

..and so since the facts do not reflect the reality of the situation we see that the reality of the situation does not reflect the TRUTH...and what has been occurring in a protracted sense is the officious concealment of evidence for the sake of building a pilgrimage industry upon the credulity of sincere souls...as AGUSTINE tells..the truth must be told ..for a lie is repugnant to the nature of GOD who is perfect goodness...and so through lies we will not reach GOD..for the Gospel bears testimony to this fact....

Not every one that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven: but he that doth the will of my Father who is in heaven, he shall enter into the kingdom of heaven. [22] Many will say to me in that day: Lord, Lord, have not we prophesied in thy name, and cast out devils in thy name, and done many miracles in thy name? [23] And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, you that work iniquity. [24] Every one therefore that heareth these my words, and doth them, shall be likened to a wise man that built his house upon a rock, [25] And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and they beat upon that house, and it fell not, for it was founded on a rock

-Matthew 7:21-25
..here the rock represents spiritually faith of the will and intellect which is bound to the reasonable deliberations & proclamations of those commissioners of Christ's exhortation...in the case of private revelations it is the Local Ordinary..until further study of an episcopal conference (ZADAR COMMISSION)..which has been done at Medjugorje...and finally the Pope...(at this time the POPE's decision is that  of the conference)..it is one of not affirmed supernatural and so promotion of the messages of medjugorje as supernatural utterances cannot be exercised in public forums or gatherings of the faithful....
