In the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost. Amen (Mt 28:19). – Part 1.

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).

Tabernacle&CourtCross

ArkInside

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.

Pope Francis and Petrus Romanus

I have been praying that Pope Francis would be Petrus Romanus as prophesied to feed his flock. So far I am dismayed at what I see.

Read this report: “By KARL RITTER Associated Press VATICAN CITY March 15, 2013 (AP)
Like his predecessor, Pope Francis reached out to Rome’s Jewish community at the very start of his pontificate, pledging to continue to strengthen the increasingly close ties between Catholics and Jews. Just hours after he was elected the first Latin American pope in history, Francis sent a letter to Rome’s chief Rabbi Riccardo di Segni, saying he hoped to “contribute to the progress that relations between Jews and Catholics” have seen since the 1962-1965 Second Vatican Council.
In an interview Friday with The Associated Press, di Segni said the dialogue between Catholicism and Judaism was “complicated” but added that the new pope’s background “gives me trust and hope” that relations will continue to improve…”
The article goes on to say: “Benedict‘s first official act as pope was a letter to Rome’s Jewish community and he became the second pope in history, after John Paul, to enter a synagogue. However, he met harsh criticism when he lifted the excommunication of a bishop who turned out to be a Holocaust-denier.”

Why? Why is this so important? The Vatican Curia (Administration which runs the governemnt) is beset with such horrendous problems and scandals so that they forced Pope Benedict to quit, that this demands Francis’ immediate attention and let the Zionists wait until later. The conversion of the Jews can only come about when the Vatican house is in order. “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” (Rm 11:25).

Pope Francis must assert that he, the Roman Pontiff is the Vicar of Christ. As Vicar he has the spiritual and temporal authority over the whole world. Francis is not asserting this.

In another AP report on 15 Mar 13 it was stated: “In an ecumenical gesture, Pope Francis refrained from imposing the sign of the cross…”
This contradicts Sacred Scripture:, Jesus said: “All power is given to Me in Heaven and in earth. Going therefore, teach ye all nations: baptizing them in the Name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost, teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you. And behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world” Mt 28:18-20.

As I read his actions and hear his words, I must conclude that Pope Francis is not Petrus Romanus. If not, who is he? I will deal more with this tremendous question shortly.
