THE CHURCH’S FORBIDDEN TEACHINGS
What your Catholic teacher should have told you, but was afraid to.
These are the teachings once taught from the pulpit and in Catholic schools. Today they have been banished. We have heard teachers in Catholic schools tell us that if they teach them, their jobs are in jeopardy. And of course they cannot admit this publicly. The result is that the number of children graduating from Catholic schools and continuing to attend Mass is down around 2%. Given that Church discipline binds Catholics to Sunday Mass, these children are living in a constant state of sin. St Jerome estimates that the number of such souls saved is pitifully small. That is, Catholic children are overwhelmingly on the way to eternal damnation. These pages go over the teaching banned from the classroom.
August 2017: How Evil Is Abortion?
God created life. He decides when each life is over, and ready for judgement. There are circumstances when we can take life, but they are few and quite obvious. For a man to destroy life, that is acting as a Creator. That is, we are playing a part which belongs only to God. Not only is it murder of an innocent, but it is a sin of pride, that of pretending to be God. So abortion offends God in more ways than one.
The greatest evil of abortion is the offence against God, and its consequences. But there are other evils arising from this most dreadful sin.
Abortion is not a valid choice, although the enemies of the Church present it as such. We cannot choose death for ourselves or anyone else.
How many young Australians have been murdered since abortion became accepted? Maybe 80 000 per year, or approaching half a million over the last half-century. Those children never entered the world of school, play, work, marriage. Their lives were snuffed out at the very beginning, making their mothers’ wombs the most dangerous places for a child to be.
There is an economic price to pay also. How many teachers are now unemployed because their pupils never saw the light of day? How many tradesmen are having trouble finding work because there are not enough families seeking houses? How many pensioners will find themselves in poverty because there are not enough taxpayers contributing to their allowance?
Abortion is part of a war declared against men by Satan, who hates flesh. He is a spirit, vastly superior to us, and his envy that Christ became a man devours him. He wishes death to us, and while we are alive, he wishes pain, torment, anguish and misery. In abortion he knows success, particularly when he can get men to do his work for him. And he gets even profession Catholics to lead the way in championing this evil. His crowning glory is to achieve an abortion in which the mother dies.
What we are seeing today is the return of the demon god Moloch, to whom children were sacrificed. That’s what we are doing – sacrificing our babies to a demon. Once we start dealing with demons, there is no rest. Accept contraception, and the devil’s servants clamour for abortion. Next they want the destruction of marriage, by easy divorce, by same-sex unions, paedophilia, pornography, polygamy, bestiality and necrophilia. Not one of these evils has encountered a strong resistance from our clergy.
Given that abortion is tax-supported, we are now all supporting the death of those who have a right to live. The arguments of the opponents of life are that a foetus (the word means ‘baby’) is not alive, but if it is, then it’s not a life worth keeping. People who would take the streets to defend the right of the left-handed spotted frog do not hesitate to demonstrate against the Church’s teaching on abortion.
The medical procedures used to kill babies include the cutting up of the child, so that a doctor is needed to count the pieces to ensure that no bits are left inside the mother by mistake.
The bottom line is that if men and women behave chastely before marriage, then marry and have the children God wishes to send them, the evil of abortion disappears. Abortion happens because of the poor example from the media, which encourage unlimited and free sex, without any regard to the consequences.
Can a woman claim ignorance that the foetus is a true human? Not likely. Medical science established that life begins at conception. If a woman goes to great lengths to avoid any discussion of the morals of abortion, she is not truly ignorant.
We in the West are producing about 1.2 life babies per mother. Muslim immigrants in Europe have many children, some as many as ten per mother, and many Muslims have several wives. The most common name for babies in some parts of Europe is Muhammad. And Muslims make up about half the children below 20 years old. In 50 years or less, we’ll have a lifetime to regret all the abortions we condoned, as our country is taken from us.
Now the forces of Hell, having experienced a lack of determination among our bishops to defend the unborn, have gone on the attack, and make no secret of their agenda, to wipe out all opposition.
The hour is late. Perhaps too late to change our laws. But not too late to tell our Catholic children the truth.
August 2017 About Hell
“Don’t talk about Hell!” said the priest. “Christ never talked about Hell.” I wondered how widespread among priests was his firmly-held opinion, and how he managed to get through a seminary without learning about Hell.
Where Hell is, we don’t know. But the indications are that it is well below the earth’s surface. The pains are so great that if we were to suffer any one of them for a fraction of a second, it would mean death. But in Hell there is no death, but a life of eternal death.
The Pains of Hell
1 You have met God, and experienced His infinite love, and if you died in the state of mortal sin, you rejected forever this source of great happiness.
2 At last you see the true situation. On earth your discernment was limited, but now you see the infinite offence of sin to an infinite God. The remorse is unbearable.
3 You are faced with the realisation that this will never change. It will never lessen. You will not find any way to ease the pain. It just goes on and on.
4 All of the pains of Hell attack the body, yet without destruction. You greatly desire that the fire would consume and destroy, but your body remains susceptible to the pain. There is no hope of unconsciousness.
5 It is completely dark, with no relief for the eyes. But you perceive the souls around you, and the disgust of their offences against God.
6 You also see the demons, in shapes which are revolting to the senses. They will keep you company in eternity.
7 There are torments which stem from the sins committed during mortal life. These are beyond our earthly imagination, but in this we shall have demons to administer whatever punishment they deem appropriate. Their creative intellect far surpasses ours, and they hate flesh, since they are spirits and believe themselves greatly superior to us.
8 The damned suffer despair. They want to love God, but instead hate Him and curse Him with gross blasphemies.
9 As you fall into Hell, so you lie for eternity. Falling from a height, perhaps you will be doubled over. You cannot move, turn over, make yourself less uncomfortable. You are chained to the same spot, in the same hole or cave forever, with not a moment’s relief.
10 It is hot. So hot we cannot imagine the heat from our experience with the fire we have here. The heat goes through body and soul. Not a part is left untouched.
11 There is an overwhelming smell of rotting flesh, enough to kill. It never changes, never gets easier to bear.
12 Unremitting loneliness. No one to converse with, except demons who hate you and want only to design more effective ways to make you suffer. You are in a huge prison, with millions of inmates, but yet you are in solitary confinement, and forever.
Some saints have described Hell
1 St Faustina
"I, Sister Faustina Kowalska, by the order of God, have visited the Abysses of Hell so that I might tell souls about it and testify to its existence...the devils were full of hatred for me, but they had to obey me at the command of God, What I have written is but a pale shadow of the things I saw.
But I noticed one thing: That most of the souls there are those who disbelieved that there is a hell." (Diary 741)
"Today, I was led by an angel to the Chasms of Hell. It is a place of great torture; how awesomely large and extensive it is!
2 St Bridget
St. Bridget justly says in her revelations: "The heat of Hell-fire is so great that if the whole world were wrapped in flames, the heat of the conflagration would be as nothing in comparison with it."
3 St Augustine
Hence we learn that that earthly fire bears no more resemblance to the fire of Hell than the feeble flame of a wax taper to the white heat of a glowing furnace. Remember this, O sinner, and lay it well to heart. St. Augustine tells us that the most fearful fire on earth is, in comparison with the fire of Hell, like a painting of fire compared to a real fire.
When thou seest a fire, call to mind the fire of Hell. And since thou couldst not endure to put thy hand for a single instant into that fire, think what the heat of Hell-fire must be, surpassing as it does so infinitely the small fire thou seest before thee. If thou canst not bear this, how canst thou endure the other?
4 St Teresa of Avila
Some Saints and devout souls, like St Teresa of Avila and Sr. Josefa Menendez where taken in spirit to hell.
5 St Gemma Galgani
Others like St Gemma Galgani were shown horrible vision of the devil and the demons: Writing to her spiritual director Gemma says: "...Come quickly, Father, or at least make the exorcism from a distance. The devil has pursued me in every possible way. Oh, if you only knew how I have suffered. How pleased he was this night. He seized me by the hair and dragged me about exclaiming, 'Disobedience, disobedience, now there is no more time to begin again. Come, come with me,' and he tried to carry me off to Hell. He tormented me like this for more than four hours, and thus I passed the night." (More on St Gemma's heroic battles with the demons here)
6 The Children of Fatima
The three children of Fatima, Blessed Jacinta Marto, Blessed Francisco Marto and Sr. Lucia Dos Santos where shown by the Blessed Virgin Mary a terrifying vision of hell when they were only ages 9 and 10 years old- and this frightening vision completely changed them to their deepest inner spirit. Even though they were but young children, after the vision given them by the Blessed Virgin, they would not hesitate in the least bit to make great sacrifices to prevent souls from going to hell. Among other things that the Blessed Virgin Mary and the angel of God taught them was this important prayer:
“Oh my Jesus; forgive us our sins. Save us from the fires of hell. Lead all souls into heaven, especially those most in need of Thy mercy”.
How many will go to Hell?
The Church teaches that Hell awaits those who die in the state of mortal sin. That is, if you deliberately miss one Sunday Mass, and die without having repented, you go to Hell. Or if you use a contraceptive in order to defeat God’s plan to conceive a child, and fail to repent before dying, you are lost.
Sure, you can pretend that you will go to confession next week. But who guarantees that you will have another week?
Have Catholic colleges ever used a text book which promotes contraception? Those responsible for this would appear to have committed the sin of scandal, leading young minds into sin.
How many children do we find at Mass on Sunday? Catholics are using contraceptives and aborting children at around the same rate as others. They are having children at the same rate also.
In a parish on the northside of Brisbane, about 3.5% of the parish goes to Mass on Sunday. Others may go at Easter and Christmas, but on the face of things more than 96% of the parish is living in the constant state of mortal sin.
Given that there is no certainty that the rest of the parish is living a Catholic life, there is the possibility that the number on the path to Hell is much higher, closer to 100%.
One way to get people to live a good life is to teach them about Hell. But Hell is one of those forbidden topics. It’s not forbidden formally, but teachers will admit in private that they are afraid to discuss Hell in any detail. As for the pulpit, it is possible that priests no longer believe, or perhaps they are afraid of losing their parishes.
A century ago Our Lady appeared to three children, and showed them a vision of Hell. What would be the reaction of Catholic bureaucrats if there was a report today that a Lady had shown a video of Hell to a seven-year-old girl?
August 2017: The Joys of Heaven
Contrary to the beliefs of social justice warriors and bureaucrats, an earthly paradise is not going to happen this side of judgement. This life offers pain, suffering and misery. No amount of stealing from the rich to bribe the poor will produce equality and happiness, except temporarily and in small amounts.
What is in store for that tiny number of people who manage to save their souls? This side of the end of the world, those in Heaven are without their bodies. They will be addedlater.
1 What do the saints tell us?
Saint Faustina: Today I was in heaven, in spirit, and I saw its unconceivable beauties and the happiness that awaits us after death. I saw how all creatures give ceaseless praise and glory to God. I saw how great is happiness in God, which spreads to all creatures, making them happy; and then all the glory and praise which springs from this happiness returns to its source; and they enter into the depths of God, contemplating the inner life of God, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, whom they will never comprehend or fathom. This source of happiness is unchanging in its essence, but it is always new, gushing forth happiness for all creatures.
Saint Alphonsus: Now I am in heaven, Philip II, king of Spain, is in heaven as well. We both are enjoying the eternal rewards of paradise, but they are very different for us. My happiness is much greater than his, for it is not like when we were still on earth, for then he was royalty and I was a commoner. We were as far apart as the earth and sky, but now it has been reversed: As lowly as I was compared to the king on earth, I now exceed him in glory in heaven. However, we are both happy, and our hearts are completely satisfied.
Saint Philip Neri: If we only got to heaven, what a sweet and easy thing it will be there to be always saying with the angels and the saints, ‘Sanctus, sanctus, sanctus.
Saint Anselm: No one will have any other desire in heaven than what God wills; and the desire of one will be the desire of all; and the desire of all and of each one will also be the desire of God.
Saint John Vianney: O my dear parishioners, let us endeavor to get to heaven! There we shall see God. How happy we shall feel! If the parish is converted we shall go there in procession with the parish priest at the head. … We must get to heaven.
Saint Bernadette: My crown in heaven should shine with innocence and its flowers should be radiant as the sun. Sacrifices are the flowers Jesus and Mary chose.
Saint Catherine of Siena: Forever they rejoice in love at the sight of me, sharing in that goodness which I have in myself and which I measure out to them according to the measure of love with which they have come to me. They are established in love for me and for their neighbors. And they are all united in general and special love, both of which come from one and the same charity. They rejoice and exult, sharing each other’s goodness with love and affection, besides that universal good which they all possess together. They rejoice and exalt with the angels, and they find their places among the saints according to the different virtues in which they excelled in the world.
2 What is it like?
Revelation tells us that the new Jerusalem shone with the glory of God, and its brilliance was like that of a very precious jewel, like a jasper, clear as crystal. The twelve gates were twelve pearls, each gate made of a single pearl. The great street of the city was of gold, as pure as transparent glass.
Is that Heaven? We don’t know. Is Heaven a physical place? Perhaps, but we may learn that time and space were created for this life only.
Heaven is ‘a place of unspeakable glory where the elect of God live with one another in the immediate presence of God and of the Lamb and where they behold Him in all His glory face to face. It is a place where the curse of sin and all of its effects have been removed forever from all who dwell there; they, being made joint heirs with Christ, inherit all things and live with unmixed joy in a state of perfect happiness incapable of being described or exaggerated forever and ever.’
‘Not only will they see Christ face to face, but they will walk with Him and talk with Him. Christ shall treat them as brothers and shall speak to them as His intimate friends.’
3 What is Missing from Heaven?
Heaven has no remnant of sin. That has been left behind either on judgement or after a period in Purgatory. Sin can exist on earth and in Hell. Nowhere else. The glorified soul is grateful that it is no longer possible to offend God. And that temptation no longer exists.
There is no sickness, possibility of injury, growing older, weariness, weakness, envy. What about hunger and thirst? These exist, but not in the way we knew them on earth. We hunger and thirst for God, and this hunger and thirst is all at once satisfied and renewed.
No unpleasant noise, smell, heat, cold or conversation can exist. No fear, sorrow, regret. But what about the souls of your friends who did not make it? It would seem dreadful to lose a relative or close friend to eternal punishment. But in Heaven we see God’s justice and mercy directly, no longer through a glass darkly.
4 What is new?
1 The glorified soul is no longer troubled by gravity. There is no weight. No working against the forces of nature. We stay where we want to be.
2 We see God face to face. At present, seeing God would result in death. But in Heaven, God is a friend we can converse with. He loves each of us, and we can spend eternity in His company.
3 We’ll meet our relatives and friends, and spend time with the saints and the angels.
4 We can go where we want, travelling at the speed of thought. Yet at all times we are face to face with God.
5 The glorified soul, even with its body, can pass through solid objects at will.
6 The laws of physics are altered so that we are not dependent on breathing and eating to survive.
7 Happiness beyond our imagining is our reward for loving God during mortal life. This happiness never grows dim. It is renewed at every moment. It is as though everything stays the same, but changes in intensity.
8 After judgement, our bodies will function perfectly, and subject to our complete control. Many earthly customs will continue, such as festival occasions which we’ll share with friends.
9 Each of us will shine with a brightness exceeding that of the sun, but with intensity according to the grace we obtained during mortal life.
10 Each person will have a beauty far surpassing anything experienced on earth. Ugliness is banished to the underworld.
11 We shall have the whole universe as our playground.
5 Why Waste Time?
Catholics know that Hell exists, and is a place they really don’t want to spend eternity. They know that Heaven is wonderful, and they expect to go there.
But few Catholics spend their days in contemplation of their final destiny. The overwhelming majority attend Mass rarely if ever. They use contraceptives, have abortions, and do not pray.
The free offer of Heaven to all, and the awfulness of the alternative, would appear to present little difficulty when making a choice. Perhaps the real reason no one really cares is that few priests and bishops ever mention the four last things.
A casual Catholic might argue that if Hell is so bad and Heaven so good, and the decision made on earth is fixed for all eternity, then the bishops and priests would be shouting this from the housetops.
So when Catholics face judgement, it is possible that this lack of teaching will be taken into account by the Divine Judge. But God’s justice is infinite, and He will seek to make up the difference in accounting at the hands of His priests and bishops.
