Pseudo-Christian mass murderer, Vladimir Putin, attended the Russian Orthodox Easter service at the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow on Sunday, April 24th (photo above). See the one-minute video here. Putin can be seen piously “blessing himself” by making the “sign of the cross” with one hand as he sanctimoniously holds a candle with the other. Irony? The loss of life, misery, and destruction in Ukraine since Putin ordered Russian troops to invade nine weeks ago is incalculable.
Pope Francis invoked the promises of the supposed Marian apparition at Fatima in 1917 when he consecrated Ukraine and Russia to the “immaculate heart of the blessed virgin Mary” on March 25th. Many Catholics joyfully assumed a peace would miraculously transpire following the consecration, but one month later the Russians continue with their bloody invasion of Ukraine.
Roman Catholics are required to consume the consecrated Jesus wafer at least once per year under threat of acquiring a mortal sin. Catholics who opt for the once-per-year minimum are encouraged to “discharge their obligation” at Easter mass, hence the phrase, “Easter duty.”
“The Chosen” streaming show aimed to present the story of Jesus and the apostles in a “hip,” contemporary way. A few misguided bloggers encouraged me to watch, but a quick google search showed that the LDS/Mormon church was involved in the production. The show’s creator, Dallas Jenkins, recently opted to utilize an “edgy” reverse-marketing campaign using billboards appearing to be vandalized by anti-(c)hristian haters and orchestrated by Satan. The entire “The Chosen” project is demonic.
Last Sunday, Roman Catholics celebrated “Divine Mercy Sunday.” What’s that? A Polish nun, Maria Faustyna Kowalska (d. 1938), claimed to have been visited by Jesus regularly. The ersatz-Jesus allegedly gave Maria Faustyna instructions on a cultish “divine mercy” painting and a “divine mercy” collection of rote prayers to be recited with the rosary beads. All of this as part of meriting salvation. Fellow-Pole, Karol Wojtyla aka pope John Paul II, had Kowalska canonized as a saint in 2000 and the cult within a cult continues to grow.
It’s surprising that the “hate speech” charges against Finnish parliamentarian, Päivi Räsänen, were withdrawn. Räsänen spoke out against same-sex marriage as contrary to Biblical teaching. This is only a short respite. The L*** steamroller steadily advances.
Conservative Catholic prelates around the world have been nervously observing the German Catholic church’s Synodal Path initiative (2019-2023), which is discussing multiple radical reforms. The possibility of schism within the RCC stemming from the synod is very real.
Controversial U.S. representative, Marjorie Taylor Greene, raised the ire of Roman Catholics this week when she stated “Satan (is) controlling the (Catholic) church” because it’s soft on illegal immigration. Greene qualified her remarks afterwards, saying they were directed at the American Catholic bishops, not the rank-and-file Catholic laity/voters. Actually, the Roman Catholic church is demonic because it propagates a false gospel of salvation by sacramental faux-grace and merit.
