Esther’s Prayer [RSVCE]

14 And Esther the queen, seized with deathly anxiety, fled to the Lord; 2 she took off her splendid apparel and put on the garments of distress and mourning, and instead of costly perfumes she covered her head with ashes and dung, and she utterly humbled her body, and every part that she loved to adorn she covered with her tangled hair. 3 And she prayed to the Lord God of Israel, and said:

“O my Lord, thou only art our King; help me, who am alone and have no helper but thee, 4 for my danger is in my hand. 5 Ever since I was born I have heard in the tribe of my family that thou, O Lord, didst take Israel out of all the nations, and our fathers from among all their ancestors, for an everlasting inheritance, and that thou didst do for them all that thou didst promise. 6 And now we have sinned before thee, and thou hast given us into the hands of our enemies, 7 because we glorified their gods. Thou art righteous, O Lord! 8 And now they are not satisfied that we are in bitter slavery, but they have covenanted with their idols 9 to abolish what thy mouth has ordained and to destroy thy inheritance, to stop the mouths of those who praise thee and to quench thy altar and the glory of thy house, 10 to open the mouths of the nations for the praise of vain idols, and to magnify for ever a mortal king. 11 O Lord, do not surrender thy scepter to what has no being; and do not let them mock at our downfall; but turn their plan against themselves, and make an example of the man who began this against us. 12 Remember, O Lord; make thyself known in this time of our affliction, and give me courage, O King of the gods and Master of all dominion! 13 Put eloquent speech in my mouth before the lion, and turn his heart to hate the man who is fighting against us, so that there may be an end of him and those who agree with him. 14 But save us by thy hand, and help me, who am alone and have no helper but thee, O Lord. 15 Thou hast knowledge of all things; and thou knowest that I hate the splendor of the wicked and abhor the bed of the uncircumcised and of any alien. 16 Thou knowest my necessity—that I abhor the sign of my proud position, which is upon my head on the days when I appear in public. I abhor it like a menstruous rag, and I do not wear it on the days when I am at leisure. 17 And thy servant has not eaten at Haman’s table, and I have not honored the king’s feast or drunk the wine of the libations. 18 Thy servant has had no joy since the day that I was brought here until now, except in thee, O Lord God of Abraham. 19 O God, whose might is over all, hear the voice of the despairing, and save us from the hands of evildoers. And save me from my fear!”

Our Esther

O holy and immaculate virgin, with what praises I shall extol thee, I know not:

[For] you are the glory of Jerusalem … you are the splendid boast of our people … God is pleased with what you have wrought. May you be blessed by the LORD Almighty forever and ever.

Vouchsafe that I may praise thee, O sacred Virgin: give me the strength against thine enemies.

FIRST READING A reading from the Book of the Prophet Joel 2:12-18
Blow the trumpet in Zion!
proclaim a fast,
call an assembly;
Gather the people,
notify the congregation;
Assemble the elders,
gather the children

Let the bridegroom quit his room
and the bride her chamber.

let the priests, the ministers of the LORD, weep,
And say, “Spare, O LORD, your people,
and make not your heritage a reproach,
with the nations ruling over them!
Why should they say among the peoples,
‘Where is their God?’”

Then the LORD was stirred to concern for his land
and took pity on his people.

In Fratelli tutti (3 October 2020),

Pope Francis heralds a city, the City of Man

“… so Philadelphia, city of brothers, will reign”

In this city:

“Fraternity thus understood overturns the logic of the apocalypse that prevails today; a logic that fights against the world because it believes that this is the opposite of God, that is idol, and therefore to be destroyed as soon as possible to accelerate the end of time. Faced with the abyss of the apocalypse, there are no longer brothers: only apostates or “martyrs” in a race “against” time. We are not militants or apostates, but all brothers.

Pope Francis the False Prophet

From being an apostle of the Gospel he will become the first preacher of the false messiah.
TAN | HISTORY OF ANTICHRIST by Rev. P. Huchedé

Pope Francis [About] is the False Prophet on two accounts:

1) Having been an apostle of the Gospel, he is not preaching it, therefore he is speaking the words that the one true God has not send him to speak; and

2) From being an apostle of the Gospel, he has become the prophet of the Antichrist, and therefore of Satan, like the ancient prophets of Ba’al.

Galatians 1:6-12 (RSVCE)
There Is No Other Gospel
6 I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and turning to a different gospel—[a] 7 not that there is another gospel, but there are some who trouble you and want to pervert the gospel of Christ. 8 But even if we, or an angel from heaven, should preach to you a gospel contrary to that which we preached to you, let him be accursed. 9 As we have said before, so now I say again, If any one is preaching to you a gospel contrary to that which you received, let him be accursed.

10 Am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I trying to please men? If I were still pleasing men, I should not be a servant[b] of Christ.[c]

Paul’s Vindication of His Apostleship
11 For I would have you know, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not man’s[d] gospel. 12 For I did not receive it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came through a revelation of Jesus Christ.

Deuteronomy 18:15-20 (RSVCE)

A New Prophet Like Moses
15 “The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your brethren—him you shall heed— 16 just as you desired of the Lord your God at Horeb on the day of the assembly, when you said, ‘Let me not hear again the voice of the Lord my God, or see this great fire any more, lest I die.’ 17 And the Lord said to me, ‘They have rightly said all that they have spoken. 18 I will raise up for them a prophet[a] like you from among their brethren; and I will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak to them all that I command him. 19 And whoever will not give heed to my words which he shall speak in my name, I myself will require it of him. 20 But the prophet who presumes to speak a word in my name which I have not commanded him to speak, or who speaks in the name of other gods, that same prophet shall die.

Footnotes
18.18 The prophet like Moses mentioned here refers either to the prophetic movement as a whole or to an individual, either Joshua (successor of Moses) or Samuel. The New Testament sees here a reference to the Messiah; cf. Jn 1.21; Acts 3.22; 7.37.

Hebrews 10:32-39 (RSVCE)

32 But recall the former days when, after you were enlightened, you endured a hard struggle with sufferings, 33 sometimes being publicly exposed to abuse and affliction, and sometimes being partners with those so treated. 34 For you had compassion on the prisoners, and you joyfully accepted the plundering of your property, since you knew that you yourselves had a better possession and an abiding one. 35 Therefore do not throw away your confidence, which has a great reward. 36 For you have need of endurance, so that you may do the will of God and receive what is promised.

37 “For yet a little while,
and the coming one shall come and shall not tarry;
38 but my righteous one shall live by faith,
and if he shrinks back,
my soul has no pleasure in him.

39 But we are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who have faith and keep their souls.

He has said to himself like Sennacherib, king of Assyria

“Thus shall you say to Hezekiah, king of Judah:
‘Do not let your God on whom you rely deceive you
by saying that Jerusalem will not be handed over
to the king of Assyria.
You have heard what the kings of Assyria have done
to all other countries: they doomed them!
Will you, then, be saved?’”

Cf. First Reading, Tuesday [June 23, 2020] of the Twelfth Week in Ordinary Time | Lectionary: 372


The Churches are now open. Let us go before the LORD and like Hezekiah, king of Judah, and before the Tabernacle, pray in the LORD’s presence:

“O LORD, God of Israel, enthroned upon the cherubim!
You alone are God over all the kingdoms of the earth.
You have made the heavens and the earth.
Incline your ear, O LORD, and listen!
Open your eyes, O LORD, and see!
Hear the words of Sennacherib which he sent to taunt the living God.
Truly, O LORD, the kings of Assyria have laid waste the nations
and their lands, and cast their gods into the fire;
they destroyed them because they were not gods,
but the work of human hands, wood and stone.
Therefore, O LORD, our God, save us from the power of this man,
that all the kingdoms of the earth may know
that you alone, O LORD, are God.”


Our Great God and Savior Jesus Christ will answer us. We know how this ends.

Beelzebub: The Devil in Primitive Africa. Structure exposed, being dismantled

Easter Sunday, April 12, 2020, came and went …

Introduction

There is nowhere else in the world the Church is growing as fast as it is growing in Africa [see 2019 data here]. Yet for those who have been brought up there, members of the various tribes on the continent [tribes in Kenya], there is this shadowy world of witchcraft, never been exorcised even after several generations of Christianity/Catholicism.


@thewarourtime at St Michael Catholic Church | Livermore, California

@thewarourtime is second generation catholic from my father’s side and 3rd generation from mother’s side. My late mother’s sister a sister with these, a cousin of hers, I believe, a Catholic priest. Dad was in the seminary, wanting to be a priest, I wanted to be a priest, my son wants to be a priest. Yet growing up, there were these people out there wanting to do you harm, casting spells or doing witchcraft on articles of clothing, one’s possessions, money, etc. so that people were sickened, never were successful or amounted to anything, marriages ruined, etc. How it all worked out and who exactly were witchcraft’s malevolent agents, wrecking havoc, no one knew, yet its specter continually hangs over Africa’s children.

Until now …

The WAR

In the Easter Mass we never had this year:

SEQUENCE: Victimæ paschali laudes

Death and life have contended
in that combat stupendous:
the Prince of life, who died,
reigns immortal.

God has a plan for his creation that Lucifer rebelled against.

Lucifer, lord all on his own over chaos and darkness but promising illusory lordship to his followers.

Beelzebub: The Devil in Primitive Africa. Structure exposed, being dismantled

Beelzebub was, because it is now being dismantled, the witchcraft structure that the Devil set up in Primitive Africa.

Matriarch passing on to duo of eldest daughter and youngest daughter, the latter acting as the seer, prophet.

Power over demons? He has never departed from this signature:

child sacrifice. In this case, males are targetted

sexual depravity. The genius of the plan, mom was a virgin bride!

To spare my mom, such a matriarch, and my sisters, won’t go into details here which immediate family members have.

All their waking hours and nights are to harming God’s creation and especially his children. Colleagues, friends, spouse, siblings, children, irrelevant.

The illusory reward: long-living widows respected in society – gives new meaning to black widow, Africans are black – surrounded seemingly by doting children and their children’s children.

Allah is the best of planners

I have a niece, a Muslim, she has the following as her WhatsApp Avatar:

In such a family that murders male children, and women rule over the survivors, God slipped in and raised his Melchisedech, the very one such a set up was erected to eliminate.


Easter Sunday, April 12, 2020, came and went …

They were unable to establish their kingdom of death. They are trying Melchisedech and arguing he is just one of them [cf. very last Star War: Palpatine and Rey, and for the latter to give in to her anger].

Victori spolia Since they couldn’t establish their kingdom by Sunday, April 12, 2020, it means they lost. Christus Vincit! That means their structures come down, one such structure in Africa is now exposed to be taken down.

Church teaching

Divination and magic

CCC 2115 God can reveal the future to his prophets or to other saints. Still, a sound Christian attitude consists in putting oneself confidently into the hands of Providence for whatever concerns the future, and giving up all unhealthy curiosity about it. Improvidence, however, can constitute a lack of responsibility.

CCC 2116 All forms of divination are to be rejected: recourse to Satan or demons, conjuring up the dead or other practices falsely supposed to “unveil” the future.48 Consulting horoscopes, astrology, palm reading, interpretation of omens and lots, the phenomena of clairvoyance, and recourse to mediums all conceal a desire for power over time, history, and, in the last analysis, other human beings, as well as a wish to conciliate hidden powers. They contradict the honor, respect, and loving fear that we owe to God alone.

CCC 2117 All practices of magic or sorcery, by which one attempts to tame occult powers, so as to place them at one’s service and have a supernatural power over others – even if this were for the sake of restoring their health – are gravely contrary to the virtue of religion. These practices are even more to be condemned when accompanied by the intention of harming someone, or when they have recourse to the intervention of demons. Wearing charms is also reprehensible. Spiritism often implies divination or magical practices; the Church for her part warns the faithful against it. Recourse to so-called traditional cures does not justify either the invocation of evil powers or the exploitation of another’s credulity.

My sisters, my aunties, lookers!

You are interested? Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

This is who they are:


The stories of jinn have a basis in reality.

Which order/choir of angels did Satan most likely belong to before he fell?

Which order/choir of angels did Satan most likely belong to before he fell?


Cf. This answer to Q. Which order/choir of angels did Satan most likely belong to before he fell?


The ordering of the Christian angelic hierarchy in choirs, according to St. Thomas Aquinas in Summa Theologica (1225–1274) is, in descending order:

  1. Seraphim, Cherubim, and Thrones;
  2. Dominations, Virtues, and Powers;
  3. Principalities, and Angels.

(For symmetry perhaps 3. is Principalities, Archangels, and Angels. Distinguishing Arch-Angel from Archangel.)

The place of the Arch-Angels is in the heavenly court. Arch-angel meaning being above all angels [of the 8 (or 9) orders], of any Choir [3 choirs].

Ans. The being, who later became known as, the primeval serpent, the devil or satan, did not belong to any of these 3 choirs.

The Day [morning] Star, Lucifer, son of Dawn [cf. Is 14:12], was a member of the heavenly court; with him the four living creatures, and the seven spirits of God. These were the morning stars [Jb 38:7], first created by God, it seems, in that order.

Then came the rest of the 8 (or 9) orders of the heavenly hosts revealed in scripture: Seraphim, Cherubim, and Thrones; Dominations, Virtues, and Powers; Principalities, [Archangels] and Angels.

The seven spirits of God are the Arch-Angels [cf. Tb 12:15I am Raph′ael, one of the seven holy angels who present the prayers of the saints and enter into the presence of the glory of the Holy One.”]. Only two others are named in scripture: Arch-Angel Michael [Jude 1:9] and Arch-Angel Gabriel [Lk 1:19].

How this was deduced:

From the book of revelation, the four living creatures are present, and the seven spirits of God. This adds up to 11 and not 12 which represents totality, wholeness, and the completion of God’s purpose[Cf. https://www.myjewishlearning.com/article/judaism-numbers/: Judaism and Numbers by Rabbi Geoffrey Dennis]. The missing one must have been one of the heavenly court.


The Day Star, Lucifer, son of Dawn. While the rest of the stars flee as it dawns, only he remains.

“I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven;”/“How you are fallen from heaven, O Day Star, son of Dawn! […]”

Paradise Lost. This is sad …

Is there any throne yet to be destroyed or usurped? David Kalākaua (1836 – 1891), Worshipful Master and at the same time King.

An earlier post reasoned and deduced that the Illuminati[1], directly or through the agency of the secret societies[2], had conquered the final and most priced throne, that of St. Peter.  This post is about another throne, that of the kingdom of Hawai’i, which is quite unique in that its last king was worshipful master and at the same time king.

David Kalākaua, Worshipful Master and King

The author and owner of this The WAR Blog, whilst he sojourned in Hawai’i, happened one day to meet a certain man and during their conversation, noticed that the man was wearing a Masonic ring on his right ring finger [4th digit]. This was a ring that just could not escape notice because Shaquille O’Neal [Shaq] had shown off his own version of this very distinctive ring on National TV:

SHAQ’s Masonic Ring

The man then proceeded to say that he was a 32nd Degree Mason and that such a degree is acquired through study. He also mentioned a nearby lodge in Honolulu and he then revealed something very surprising, which was that King David Kalākaua, the Merrie Monarch, the last king of the Kingdom of Hawaiʻi, was a Freemason and that there were “Masonic stuff” around the base of his statue in Waikiki. The statue is erected in the Waikiki Gateway Park between Kuhio Ave and Kalākaua Ave.

Well, that statue had to be visited and below are the pictures that were taken:

Uncovering King Kalākaua’s Secrets As A Mason

The Extraordinary Life of a King and 33° Freemason (presents freemasonry as benign.)

Masonic Tourist: Celebrating the Masonic Legacy of Hawaii’s Last King July-August 2012 By Mark Zane Mauikanehoalani Lovell, 32° [PDF]

Thursday, March 8, 2012 The King’s Secret

“In 1879, with full Masonic rites, the cornerstone of Iolani Palace was laid, and Kalākaua’s temple, Lodge le Progres De l’Oceanie, still meets today on the palace grounds.

“I think they used to meet in the attic,” said Diamond.

There was a practical reason for Kalākaua’s lodge activities. The monarchs of Europe were also enthusiastic Masons, and through the organization, Kalākaua cemented fraternal ties with other royalty.

“When the Honolulu Masons contacted us and asked if they could loan us the Kalākaua Masonic items, it helped created(sic) the exhibit,” Diamond said. “We don’t normally get the chance to tell this part of the story.”

Kings and potentates, they’re all Masons,” said Lovell. “And here we’d found these items hidden away, just gathering dust.”

There were no guns in the gun safe, by the way. Lovell, who’s in charge of indexing and filing for the organization, thinks it was used as “a hasty attempt to preserve these items at least a half-century ago. It wasn’t climate-controlled and there’s some degradation.

“We’re finding out that Freemasons were integral to the history of modern Hawaii,” Lovell said. “Many of the best-known leaders during the royal era were Masons.”

That doesn’t mean they were on the same page. During the overthrow of the Hawaiian monarchy, Lovell pointed out, there were Masonic lodges fighting on both sides.

(All emphases mine).

That David Kalākaua was a Mason may perhaps explain why and how he ascended to the throne when there were more eligible claimants than he.


[1] Illuminati: Members of Grand Orient Lodges who have been initiated into “The Order and Sect of the Illuminati”. They are a small but powerful group which Include international-minded bankers, industrialists, scientists, military and political leaders, educators, economists, etc. They are men who have accepted the Luciferian plan for the rule of Creation as being preferable to that of Almighty God. They worship Lucifer as required by Albert Pike in his book “Morals and Dogmas”. They acknowledge the authority of no mortal except their leader. They give loyalty to no nation. They direct the CONTINUING LUCIFERIAN CONSPIRACY to prevent God’s plan, for the rule of Creation, being put into practice; they plot to obtain absolute control of this world and everything in it. They use ALL subversive movements to divide masses of the people into opposing camps on political, social, racial, economic, and religious issues, then arm them, and make them fight and destroy each other. They hope to make humanity follow this process of self-destruction until all existing political and religious Institutions have been eliminated. They then plan to crown THEIR leader King-despot of the entire world and enforce the Luciferian dictatorship with Satanic despotism.

Illuminism: The name given to the special rites as written by Professor Adam Weishaupt of Frankfort, Germany, at the instigation of the men who in 1773 constituted the High Priests of Satanism. The ritual of the Illuminati was introduced into the Bavarian Grand Lodge in 1776 as a preliminary step towards infiltrating Grand Orient Lodges into French Freemasonry for the purpose of furthering the plans for ‘The Great French Revolution’ which was scheduled to take place in 1789: A modern version of “The Black Mass” was introduced by Gen. Albert Pike 1871.

International Money-lenders: The Illuminati and their agentur who by reason of their cartels and combines and the use of usury have obtained control of the monetary systems and economy of the so called “Free Nations”. They lead the people of those Nations slowly into economic bondage so they can ultimately enslave them; body, mind, and soul.

Falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus. One may disregard Abp. Fernández’s entire defense of #AmorisLaetita’s Ch. VIII

Archbishop Victor Manuel Fernández, Titular Archbishop of Tiburnia, Rector de la Pontificia Universidad Católica Argentina Santa Maria de los Buenos Aires [EN]

In his defense of Ch. VIII of Amoris Laetitia [translated in English: Chapter VIII of Amoris Laetitia: What is left after the storm | Victor Manuel Fernández], Abp. Fernández claimed that there have been recent changes [in] discipline regarding the divorced in new unions and went to state that:

1) “[T]he prohibition against funerals and any public funeral service” has changed without all the beliefs that supported that praxis falling away.

2) (Canon 2336[sic]) in the Code of Canon Law (1917): “If, spurning the admonition of the Ordinary, they stay in the illicit relationship, they are to be excommunicated according to the gravity of the deed or struck with personal interdict” is no longer in the current Code (1983).

Can 2356. Bigami, idest qui, obstante coniugali vinculo, aliud matrimonium, etsi tantum civile, ut aiunt, attentaverint, sunt ipso facto infames; et si, spreta Ordinarii monitione, in illicito contubernio persistant, pro diversa reatus gravitate excommunicentur vel personali interdicto plectantur.

In his article Clarifying what we can | In the Light of the Law A Canon Lawyer’s Blog, August 23, 2017, Dr. Edward Peters, JD, JCD, Ref. Sig. Ap. disputes these factual claims by Abp. Fernández and argues that:

1) [D]ivorced and ‘remarried’ Catholics are still recognized as figuring among those to whom ecclesiastical burial may be denied.

2) Catholics were not excommunicated under the 1917 Code for being divorced and remarried.

From the plain reading of the Canon 2336 2356 referenced by the Archbishop, it deals specifically with bigamy and the one twice married, and infamous for that very fact, faced the ecclesiastical sanctions of either excommunication or personal interdict only after disregarding the admonitions of the Ordinary and persisting in their bigamy.

This is very significant for the Archbishop to be just confused or mistaken when his truncated English profile reads [compared to the extensive one in Spanish]:

Archbishop Victor Manuel Fernandez holds a Doctorate Degree in Theology and has been the President of the Pontifical Catholic University of Argentina [UCA] since 2009. He was previously Dean of the School of Theology of UCA (2008-2009) and Chairman of the Argentine Theological Society (2007-2009). He is also member of the Pontifical Council for Culture since 2014.

Rev. Fernandez’s service to Higher Education and the Catholic Church is extensive and broader. He was in charge of a parish in Rio Cuarto, Cordoba, where he founded the Seminary, the Sacred Science Institute for Teachers, and the Lay Centre for continued faith formation. He also advised local movements and lay institutions, while providing support to catechetical and ecumenical education programs.

He participated in the 5th General Conference of the Episcopate of Latin America (2007) and was member of its Editorial Committee. He has been an expert in several commissions of the Argentine Conference of Catholic Bishops (Comision Espiscopal Argentina-CEA) and, since 2014, is member of the Commission for Faith and Culture. On that same year, for the 3rd Extraordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops, Pope Francis appointed Rev. Fernandez as Vice-president for the Message and member of the Editorial Commission in charge of the Report of the Synod entitled Relatio Synodi, on “Pastoral Challenges of the Family in the Context of Evangelization”. On September 2015, for the 14th Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops, he was also member of the Editorial Commission in charge of the Report of the Synod on the topic of “Vocation and mission of families in the Church and the Contemporary World.”

Since July 2016, Rev. Fernandez is advisor of the Congregation for Catholic Education. He has more than 350 publications in books and articles both in international and national journals from Argentina, Latin American and Europe.

Since we are dealing with Canon Law and Archbishop Fernández – Rector of a Catholic University and with such extensive relevant educational background – has made false factual claims on which his defense is based, by invoking the venerable legal principle Falsus in uno, falsus in omnibus, one may disregard his entire defense of Ch. 8. of Amoris Laetitia.

For those still wanting to consider the rest of the Archbishop’s defense, be warned that together with the false factual claims, the Archbishop will draw you into his  labyrinth by first questioning what the Church has never taught to be exceptions to the 5th and 7th Commandments [cf. CCC 2263 – 2267 and Catholic Encyclopedia > Theft] and proposing that they be considered as exceptions.

Conclusion

Abp. Fernández’s defense of Ch. 8. of Amoris Laetitia and his arguments contained therein are a non-starter.

It is clear that the Archbishop’s defense supports an agenda which is opposed to the Truth.
