Reconciling Our Position Regarding
The Catholic Faith
and The Roman Catholic Church
Some individuals become confused because
our position regarding the Catholic Faith - the Faith which contains
the greatest concentration of revealed truths (1) - when it is compared
with our criticism, fully backed by Heaven (2), of the behavior of the
The clarification of this possible
confusion was addressed when one of the frequent visitors to our pages
posed the question in a most logical manner. Therefore, we have chosen
to transform his letter, and our response, into a full fledged document
so that others may be able to receive the clarification they are
I've been thinking about
something a lot during Lenten season, and having been a reader of your
site for some time, I've looked again and again recently but have found
no document (yet) that answers the following question:
If Jesus Christ is truly THE rock upon which the Church is built (which
I believe) (3),
and Peter and his successors were truly made head of the Church (not
THE infallible rock, but a rock, which I also believe) (4), then how does one who
finds the Catholic Faith fulfilling in so many ways - it is, as you
say, "the greatest concentration of Divinely Revealed Truths," (5) (which I believe as
well) - reconcile the uneasiness of keeping the Catholic Faith in spite
of holding a belief which the Catholic Church would call rebellious?
In other words, how do I continue to receive the sacraments and
practice the Catholic Faith (6)
while having this dissent with the core issue of the Church's teaching
about the pope?
Your consideration and prayer regarding this matter - for all of us
struggling with this - is greatly appreciated. And if time (and
the Holy Spirit) allows you a response, please share it with us!
Thanks for all you do.
Thank you! for the opportunity to
address this issue since it is in the mind of many true Christians.
You and I and all those who strive to
live the Faith compose the Church. The Church Administration IS NOT the Church, even
though for centuries they have attempted to brainwash the
Faithful by calling themselves "Mother Church". Mary is our Mother (7)
by Divine Decree from the Cross [John
19:26-27] - we have no other mystical Mother. In
addition, to confirm that Divine Decree, H.H. Paul VI officially
declared Mary to be the Mother of the Church.
Let us review our stance....
Our position has been, is and will ever
be, God Willing, the same as that of the original Peter:
We ought to obey God, rather than
men. [Acts 5: 29]
Thus anything that clearly
goes against the explicit Word of God - even
when proclaimed by the highest authority of the Church Administration
(up to and including the Pope) - does not
over the Word of God. To repeat what Peter said, We ought to obey God, rather than men. [Acts 5: 29]
For example: We uphold a limited claim of Infallibility (4)
("the buck" has to stop
somewhere). However, we completely reject the claim of "Blanket
Infallibility" (on everything) that the Church authorities have been
trying to promote since Vatican I. As we have shown - Holy Scriptures
in hand - not even the original Peter claimed 100 % infallibility;
furthermore, with his words and deeds, Peter proved
his own fallibility.
A review of our document dealing with the current Church Administration
positions on many issues (8)
quickly show that - were there a left, a center and a right Catholicism
- the Vatican would be at miguel de Portugal's left!
today's conditions, should the Faithful refrain from partaking the
Sacraments? Certainly not! No man - even the one who now claims to be
the Pope - should ever come between God and His children. The Faithful
should accept the enormous Graces that God has granted us with properly executed
Sacraments. These Graces are necessary, especially as we approach the
End of These Times.
What the Faithful must be sure of - to the extent possible - is the
validity of the Sacraments. Are the leaders at Mass passing around non
consecrated hosts? (9)
the Sacrament of Matrimony conducted properly (10)
- with adequate
preparation included? Even in the confessional we must diligently seek
orthodoxy. Over 20 years ago miguel de Portugal's confessor, a Catholic
University Chaplain, told him during the Sacrament of Reconciliation
that he really did not need to go to confession any more since his (m
de P's) soul was in such advanced state. Obviously, miguel changed
We shall cap the above with a Biblical
by asking these questions:
+ Where did Jesus go on Saturday? To
the synagogue and, on special days, to the Temple.
+ Where did the Apostles continue to pray and worship in the early
years of Christianity? In the same places.
Then, we ask - "Why should the children of God not partake of the Gifts
God has lovingly prepared for the benefit of their souls even if the
AntiChrist seats in the Chair of Peter?"
Let us not forget that just as The
sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath. [Mark 2:27], the Church Administration was made
for man, and not man for the Church Administration. And, man was made for God!
Let us not forget what Jesus made crystal clear at the Last Supper:
12 Then after he had washed their feet, and
taken his garments, being set down again, he said to them: Know you
what I have done to you? 13 You call me Master, and Lord; and you say
well, for so I am. 14 If then I being your
Lord and Master, have washed your feet; you also ought to wash one
another's feet. 15
For I have given you an example, that as I have done to you, so you do
also. [John 13]
follows that the Administration of the Church is to serve the Church -
composed by the living stones, the Faithful. The Church Administration is not to act as if they
were part of Pharaoh's Court and lord over the people of God. Did He
25.... You know that the
princes of the Gentiles lord it over them; and they that are the
greater, exercise power upon them. 26 It shall not be so among you: but
whosoever will be the greater among you, let him be your minister: 27
And he that will be first among you, shall be your servant. 28
Even as the Son of man is not come to be ministered unto, but to
minister, and to give his life a redemption for many. [Matthew 20]
Once again, we wish to thank you for the opportunity to address these
issues and I pray to God that we have done it as clearly as it is
the reader may readily see: The above crystal-clear teachings from God
have been conveniently "filtered out" by the Church Administration's
"Cafeteria Catholic" filter.
