On May 19, 1886, the following decree was issued at Rome: “Several bishops and prudent members of Christ’s flock, knowing that certain men possessed of doubtful faith, or belonging to the Masonic sect, strongly contend at the present day for the practice of Pagan custom of cremation, founding special societies to spread this custom, fear lest the minds of the faithful may be worked upon by those wiles and sophistries so as to lose by decree esteem and reverence towards the constant Christian image of burying the bodies of the faithful – a usage hallowed by the solemn rites of the Church.
In order, therefore, that some fixed rule may be laid down for the faithful, to preserve them from the insidious doctrines above mentioned, the Supreme Congregation of the Holy Roman and Universal Inquisition is asked:
“1. Is it lawful to become a member of those societies whose object is to spread the practice of cremation?
“2. Is it lawful to leave orders for the burning of one’s own body or that of another?
“Their Eminences the Cardinals General Inquisitors, after grave and mature consideration, answered:
“To the first question, No; and if it is a question of societies connected with the Masonic sect, the penalties pronounced against this sect would be incurred.
To the second, No.“When these decisions were referred to our Holy Father, Pope Leo XIII., His Holiness approved and confirmed them, and directed them to be communicated to the bishops, in order that they might instruct the faithful upon detestable abuse of burning the bodies of the dead, and might do all in their power to keep the flock entrusted to their charge from such a practice.”
We have given this decree in full, so that the exact position of the Church’s teaching concerning cremation may be clearly seen. There is nothing intrinsically wrong in burning the bodies of the dead. The practice might become necessary at times of excessive mortality or of danger to the living, e.g. after a battle or during a plague. But in ordinary times cremation disturbs the pious sentiments of the faithful; it is not in keeping with the beautiful rites of Christian burial; and it has been introduced by enemies of the Church for the purpose of shutting her out from one of her most touching functions. These reasons justify the condemnation above quoted. To go into various sanitary, legal, and economical arguments for and against cremation would be beyond the scope of the present work.

Throughout the history of Christianity, Popes have admitted that Christians are the younger brothers of the Jews. This is so, and accordingly it is necessary to look at the scriptural meaning of this declaration, because the elder brothers (Jews) must serve the younger brothers (Christians):
“Isaac besought the Lord for his wife, because she was barren and He heard him, and made Rebecca to conceive. But the children struggled in her womb, and she said: If it were to be so with me, what need was there to conceive? And she went to consult the Lord and He answering, said: Two nations are in thy womb, and two peoples shall be divided out of thy womb, and one people shall overcome the other, and the elder shall serve the younger” (Gn 25:21-23).
“Joseph seeing that his father (Jacob) had put his right hand upon the head of Ephraim, was much displeased, and taking his father’s hand he tried to lift it from Ephraim’s head, and to remove it to the head of Manasses And he said to his father: It should not be so, my father for this is the firstborn, put thy right hand upon his head. But he refusing, said: I know, my son, I know, and this also shall become a people, and shall be multiplied; but his younger brother shall be greater than he; and his seed shall grow into nations. And he blessed them at that time, saying: In thee shall Israel be blessed, and it shall be said: God do to thee as to Ephraim, and as to Manasses. And he set Ephraim before Manasses” (Gn 48:17-20).
In conclusion, I look for a time of great trials for all true believers. It will be a time when individuals will have to examine their position as members of a congregation, their own private beliefs, and separate ‘institution’ from ‘self’ if necessary. To all who have the courage to examine their position in Christ Jesus I say: “Return to the strong hold, ye prisoners of hope, I will render thee double as I declare today” (Zc 9:12).
In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen (Mt 28:19).
There are two significant events which happened in the last few years which we should look at in this year of 2014:
1. The Zionist stranglehold on the money and banking system of the world is 99.99% complete. It appears that there only remains Syria, Sudan and North Korea from their grip, and usually the Zionists get their objective through war. See the following website:
2. The current ‘pope’ Francis as Cardinal Bergoglio brought his camera crew onto a train to demonstrate his humility.
The drawing which follows, taken from the Masonic Guide Book, shows the sign of a Master Mason when he wants to make himself public.
In the following photograph of Cardinal Bergoglio, please note the right hand inside his jacket, showing himself as a ‘Master Mason.’
Should this picture be ‘accidental’, then a repudiation of Masonry and Zionism would be in order for the man who does not occupy the Papal Palace of the Vatican.
As encouragement to the faithful Catholics I remind them of what Jesus said: “That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build My Church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it” (Mt 16:18). The Masonic and Zionist ‘gates of hell’ shall not prevail!
There is a very small minority of Cardinals, Archbishops, Bishops, Priests, Deacons, Sisters, Brothers, and laity who do not accept the Masonic and Zionist rulership presently in the Vatican and throughout the world. These faithful wait in silent hope and expectation for the word of God to be fulfilled: “He that sat on the throne, said: Behold, I make all things new. And He said to me: Write. For these words are most faithful and true. And He said to me: It is done. I am Alpha and Omega: the Beginning and the End. To him that thirsts, I will give of the fountain of the water of life, freely. He that shall overcome shall possess these things, and I will be his God, and he shall be My son” (Apoc 21:5-7).
I had stated previously that the Jews have lost their inheritance and title of the ‘chosen people’ because of their rejection of the Messiah, and the murder of Jesus, the Christ, the Messiah. However, Saint Paul asserts that the Jews will be converted:
“I say then: Has God cast away His people? God forbid! God has not cast away His people which He foreknew…What then? That which Israel sought, he has not obtained but the election has obtained it. And the rest have been blinded…Now if the offence of them be the riches of the world and the diminution of them the riches of the Gentiles, how much more the fulness of them?…If, by any means, I may provoke to emulation them who are my flesh and may save some of them. For if the loss of them be the reconciliation of the world, what shall the receiving of them be, but life from the dead?…And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief shall be grafted in, for God is able to graft them in again… For I would not have you ignorant, brethren, of this mystery (lest you should be wise in your own conceits) that blindness in part has happened in Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles should come in, and so all Israel should be saved, as it is written: There shall come out of Sion, he that shall deliver and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob” (Rm 11:1,2,7,12,14,15,23,25,26).
The ‘sons of God’ are the One True Catholic Church, which is the Eternal Virgin Eucharistic Church.
The ‘sons of men’ are the supporters of Freemasonry and Zionism which is to be found in the multitudinous ‘churches’ of Protestantism. The ‘sons of men’ are the supporters of the devil, they are Satanists.
In the 1960’s the Roman Catholic Church left the True Church under the rules of the Second Vatican Council. This council was called by the Freemason Pope John XXIII. He abolished the condemnation of Freemasonry from the Code of Canon Law, among other acts of sabotage. This ‘ecumenical church’ watered down the faith handed on to us from the Apostles and the first Jewish converts. This ‘ecumenical church’ admitted Zionists and Freemasons to their ranks at the highest level.
On the other hand, Protestantism embraced and taught Freemasonry, so much so that Masonry became more important than Jesus Christ, and fostered their hatred for Catholics with more gusto than teaching the Gospel of Christ. Protestantism and Freemasonry are synonymous, and since Masonry is financed and supported by the Zionists, then Protestantism is the ‘spiritual’ mouthpiece for the satanic Kingdom of Zion which violently opposes of the Kingdom of God. As such then, the antichrist cults of Zionism and Freemasonry are the mouthpiece of Satan, and the ‘gates of hell.’ Therefore, by their support and enrollment in Masonry and Zionism, protest-ant-ism is the very ‘gates of hell’. Whoever denies the Seven Sacraments of the Church, denies Christ and is an antichrist. Protestantism is antichrist.
At this time in the world, Sodomy is legalized in almost every country. The National Protestant ‘Church’ in Washington, DC, USA has declared that they are ‘open for business’ to conduct ‘gay marriages.’ In some countries it is a crime to speak against homosexuals. To call homosexuals ‘gay’ is to agree with the devil that sodomy is ok. To agree with the devil is to deny God and to deny Holy Scriptures. It is not right to call ‘homosexuals’ by slur names like queer, faggots, powderpuffs, gay, fairies, perverts, etc., no they should be called as God refers to them in Holy Scripture:
“Thou shalt not lie with mankind as with womankind because it is an abomination…If any one lie with a man as with a woman, both have committed an abomination: let them be put to death. Their blood be upon them.” (Lv 18:22; 20:13);
“effeminate” (Pr 18:8; Is 3:4 3:4; Ho 4:14; Job 36:14; 3K 14:24, 22;47; 4K23:7);
“lusts, men with men, reprobate sense, they who do such things, are worthy of death, and not only they that do them, but they also that consent to them that do them” (Rm 1:26-32).
“changing of nature, disorder in marriage” (Ws 14:24-26)
“effeminate…liers with mankind” (1Co 6:9,10).
“crime against nature” (Jdg 19:24).
“who defile themselves with mankind” (1T 1:9).
It is here that I separate the ‘Jews’ into two categories, the rulers and the ordinary people. The ordinary Jew believed in Jesus, the Christ, the Messiah, while the rulers were jealous of Him and, as seen above, plotted and murdered Him. Jesus said to His Disciples: “Behold we go up to Jerusalem, and the Son of man shall be betrayed to the chief priests and the scribes, and they shall condemn Him to death, and shall deliver Him to the Gentiles to be mocked and scourged and crucified…” (Mt 20:18,19).
When the accusation is made that the Jews crucified Jesus, this statement is not fully accurate. The statement should read that the rulers of the Jews crucified Jesus. The ordinary Jew followed Jesus and it is from these humble ranks that Christianity has spread to the ends of the earth! God has blessed them. On the other hand, it is from the ‘rulers of the Jews’ that the Satanic cult of Satanism (Zionism) was formed. It is from these ‘rulers’ that the ‘sons of men’ has expanded throughout the earth..
Christianity flourished under the Catholic Church in the first 500 years. It spread throughout the world, gave us the Bible, and established the call of the Apostle Paul: “One body and one Spirit as you are called in one hope of your calling. One Lord, one faith, one baptism. One God and Father of all, Who is above all, and through all, and in us all” (Ep 4:4-6). This is the final victory of the Church.
About the year 500, the Coptics falling to pride and disobedience established their Egyptian church which is currently headed by a Pope Tawadros II.
About 1000 AD the Orthodox broke away and established their church each area ruled by a Patriarch. (In essence a patriarch is the ‘pope’ of his area).
About 1500 AD the Protestants broke away from the Church and today it is reported that they have some 30,000 different sects or cults. For further information on this see:
The history of the pride, greed, disobedience by the rulers of the Jews is evident, and their
opposition to God and His anointed continued until the arrival of Jesus, Who is the Messiah, the Christ.
The ‘rulers’ of the Temple, ‘sons of men,’ were so jealous of Jesus Christ, that like the fratricide of Cain against Abel, the rulers of the Jews (sons of men as opposed to the sons of God – (Gn 6:2) murdered Jesus, by hanging Him on the Cross. It was in this very act that the ‘Jews’ lost their inheritance of the ‘chosen people,’ they preferred a murderer to the Messiah! The rulers got what they did not reckon on: “Trust in Him, all ye congregation of people: pour out your hearts before Him. God is our helper for ever. But vain are the sons of men, the sons of men are liars in the balances: that by vanity they may together deceive. Trust not in iniquity, and cover not robberies: if riches abound, set not your heart upon them. God has spoken once, these two things have I heard, that power belongs to God, and mercy to Thee, O Lord; for Thou wilt render to every man according to his works” (Ps 61:913).
Scripture bears witness to this claim that it was the rulers, the ‘sons of men’ ‘sons of the devil’ who murdered Jesus: “Peter seeing, made answer to the people: Ye men of Israel, why wonder you at this? Or why look you upon us, as if by our strength or power we had made this man to walk? The God of Abraham and the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob, the God of our fathers, has glorified His Son Jesus, Whom you indeed delivered up and denied before the face of Pilate, when he judged He should be released. But you denied the Holy One and the Just and desired a murderer to be granted unto you, but the Author of Life you killed, Whom God has raised from the dead of which we are witnesses…And now, brethren, I know that you did it through ignorance as did also your rulers” (Ac 3:12-15). Peter emphasizes ‘you did it through ignorance as did also your rulers.’
“Paul rising up and with his hand bespeaking silence, said: Ye men of Israel and you that fear God, give ear…Men, brethren, children of the stock of Abraham, and whosoever among you fear God, to you the word of this salvation is sent. For they that inhabited Jerusalem and the rulers thereof, not knowing Him, nor the voices of the prophets which are read every Sabbath, judging Him, have fulfilled them, and finding no cause of death in Him, they desired of Pilate that they might kill Him. And when they had fulfilled all things that were written of him, taking him down from the tree, they laid him in a sepulchre” (Ac 13:16,26-29). Paul emphasizes ‘and the rulers thereof.’
“The (Jews) stirred up the people and the ancients and the scribes. And running together, they took (Stephen) and brought him to the council…And all that sat in the council, looking on him…Then the high priest said: Are these things so? (Stephen answered): “You stiffnecked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, you always resist the Holy Ghost. As your fathers did, so do you also…Which of the prophets have not your fathers persecuted? And they have slain them who foretold of the coming of the Just One of whom you have been now the betrayers and murderers. Who have received the law by the disposition of angels and have not kept. Now hearing these things, they were cut to the heart and they gnashed with their teeth at him. And they, crying out with a loud voice, stopped their ears and with one accord ran violently upon him. And casting him forth without the city, they stoned him” (Ac 6:12; 7:1,51-57). Stephen emphasizes ‘ancients and the scribes… you have been now the betrayers and murderers.’
Apart from the ‘sons of men’ (sons of the devil), the ‘sons of God’ stayed faithful to God and there are 12 generations form Adam to Noah and the Flood. The number 12 signifies order, or government. But a number of the ‘sons of God’ were bewitched by the beauty of the ‘sons of men’ and left the worship of God to join in the enticements of the sons of the devil: “And God seeing that the wickedness of men was great on the earth, and that all the thought of their heart was bent upon evil at all times, it repented Him that He had made man on the earth. And being touched inwardly with sorrow of heart He said: I will destroy man, whom I have created, from the face of the earth, from man even to beasts, from the creeping thing even to the fowls of the air, for it repents Me that I have made them” (Gn 6:5). This brought on the Flood in which only the ‘sons of God’ survived and all the ‘sons of the devil’ were destroyed.
When Noah and his sons and wives came out of the Ark, the earth was pristine and clean with no sin. However sin entered into the second son whose name was Ham. Noah cursed his seed, and it from this offspring came Nimrod and those who built the tower of Babel and later Babylon. Consistently in the descendants of Noah, Abraham, Moses, Saul, David, Solomon and the following leaders rebellion against God Almighty was exercised.
The sons of Solomon divided Israel into 2 kingdoms, the north kingdom with 10 tribes was called ‘Israel’ and the south with 2 tribes was called ‘Judah.’ In the history of the divided kingdoms there were 19 kings in the northern kingdom of Israel, and scripture records that not one of them did that was pleasing to the Lord. In the southern kingdom there were 20 kings and only 8 of them did that which was pleasing to the Lord. The rebellion against God the Almighty is recorded in the Book of Machabees, and for some unearthly reason, the success of Judas Machabeus against the enemies of Israel is astonishing when one considers that with a small army he put to flight the nations fighting against him, and then he goes and makes a concord with the Roman Empire for protection! That lack of trust in the Saviour of Israel ended in the Roman conquest and enslavement of Israel, the destruction of the Temple, and the Jewish inability to perform the rites and sacrifices which God commanded. It is written: “But if you and your children, revolting, shall turn away from following Me, and will not keep My commandments, and My ceremonies, which I have set before you, but will go and worship strange gods, and adore them, I will take away Israel from the face of the land which I have given them, and the Temple which I have sanctified to My Name, I will cast out of My sight, and Israel shall be a proverb, and a byword among all people” (3K9:6,7). The Roman Empire was the false gods of the Jews.
We bring this salutation yet command, to the weary world, so oppressed by the forces of evil, to bring the message of hope, salvation and victory. The ‘sons of God’ (Gn 6:2) are about to inflict the final defeat now and for ever the wickedness of the sons of the devil, also known as the ‘sons of men’ (Gn 6:5).
“For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him that made it subject, in hope, because the creature also itself shall be delivered from the servitude of corruption into the liberty of the glory of the children of God. For we know that every creature groans and travails in pain, even till now. And not only it, but ourselves also, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for the adoption of the sons of God, the redemption of our body.” (Rm 8:20 23).
How did this being ‘made subject to vanity’ come about?
The first of the seven deadly sins ‘pride’ was invented by the Archangel Lucifer and he followed this with disobedience to the Creator, Almighty God. This fallen angel is now known as Satan and devil. He used his invented sin of pride on Eve and Adam, and in turn got them to disobey God. After God confronted the first parents and the ‘blame game’ was completed, they were cast out of Paradise. Two sons were born to them, Cain and Able. Pride entered into Cain and he murdered his younger brother Able. The Lord God said to the murderer Cain: “Now therefore cursed shall you be upon the earth, which has opened her mouth and received the blood of your brother at your hand…a fugitive and a vagabond shall you be upon the earth…And Cain went out from the face of the Lord, and dwelt as a fugitive on the earth at the east side of Eden. (Gn 4:11,12,16).
The sin of pride was always present in the sons of the devil as “Cain knew his wife, and she conceived, and brought forth Henoch and he built a city, and in his pride he called the name thereof by the name of his son Henoch” (Gn 4:17), as it is written: “…their sepulchres shall be their houses for ever, their dwelling places to all generations, they have called their lands by their names” (Ps 48:12).
The lineage of Cain is contained in the same chapter, and includes the names of the two wives of Lamech who was the last of the ‘sons’ of Cain.’ This Lamech murdered Cain, and so the ‘sons of men’ began and ended before the Flood with murder. There are 11 names mentioned in the generation of Cain, and 11 is the number for sin. The last woman’s name mentioned of the ‘sons of men’ is ‘Noema’ which means ‘pleasure.’
In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
What is the fuller meaning of this blessing?
It is the summation of all that Almighty God has given us in action and in Holy Writ from the beginning of time. This can best be summarized in the Tabernacle of the Testimony which housed the Ark of the Covenant (Ex 25:16;27:21).
The traditional Catholic Church was built in the shape of a Cross, with the design following the Tabernacle of the Testimony. We have established the Tabernacle which contains the Body of Christ in Holy Eucharist in the position where the Ark of the Covenant is placed inside the Veil.
We replace the Veil with the Altar Rails.
This Sanctuary, the Holy of Holies, represents the Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, but even with more meaning.
Where the Candlestick and Show-bread were placed is represented the Holy Ghost and Holy Eucharist.
The entrance to the Tabernacle of Testimony represents Jesus, Who is the Door, as He says: “Amen, amen, I say to you, I am the door of the sheep” (Jn 10:7).
Where the Altar of Incense is placed we join our hands at our breast and beseech Our Lord: “I have cried to Thee, O Lord, hear me, hearken to my voice, when I cry to Thee. Let my prayer be directed as incense in Thy sight, the lifting up of my hands, as evening sacrifice” (Ps 140:1,2).
And so, with this blessing, we honor:
God the Father, Author of Creation;
God the Son, Author of Salvation; and
God the Holy Ghost, Author of our Sanctification.
In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen.
