I speak of St. Matthew's Church on Loch Raven Boulevard - quite close to one of my early childhood homes. While we usually attended St. Pius X, occasionally we would attend Sunday Mass at St Matthew's. In those days, during the early 1960s, all Catholic Churches embraced their God-given mission. St. Matthew's has now reneged and is actually greasing the skids to hell for many of its parishioners. By affirming sodomites in their mortal sins, they are showing anything but charity towards them, for true charity leads away from sin and to heaven through repentance and the Sacraments. In fact, because they are formally and materially cooperating in mortal sin, many in the parish who participate in this enabling of sodomy are guilty of mortal sin - most especially the pastor, Father Joseph Muth. The proverbial "millstone around the neck" appears to be a parish organization called LEAD; I'll provide screenshots of the website below.
There is quite a detailed article regarding the parish on the website of the Not-At-All Catholic Reporter. You'll see that this LEAD outfit is not concerned at all about leading homosexuals from their life of sin into a truly Catholic life. No, instead they revel in the fact that they have two "married" lesbians (one of them being a former Catholic sister) and that they participated in Baltimore's gay pride parade last summer. Most disturbing is that Auxiliary Bishop Denis Madden said of LEAD, "I was impressed by them. They are good people." If Bishop Madden thinks that folks who are literally leading others to perdition are "good people", I can only surmise that he himself jeopardizes his own soul by giving his own affirmation to sodomy.
Here are the screen shots with some commentary. Then please continue reading below.
What you see to the right are pictures of Baltimore's gay pride parade, a celebration of perversion and
mortal sin. One gets the impression that this webmaster tried to get pictures that weren't too vile, but this one is bad enough.
Now you see on this subpage is a list of the usual "gang of suspects": every gay rights group that has at least a thin "katholyc" veneer. So does that really include the National Coalition of American Nuns? No wonder so many of these orders are dying off! Apparently there is another parish in
Baltimore that is similarly infested: St Ignatius. We'll look at them at another time
Here is the contact information for the prelate of Baltimore, Archbishop William Lori. Contact him and ask him what he intends to do about this situation. As Archbishop, he is the chief shepherd of this parish and he bears responsibility before God for each and every one of those souls that is imperiled by this scandalous situation. Given the fact that the Not-At-All Catholic Reporter has broadcast this debacle nationwide, there is no way that Archbishop Lori can plead ignorance. Insist that Lori disciplines Father Muth; while he's at it, he might want to address serious matters with Auxiliary Bishop Madden as well.
Thanks to the progressive messages of the Pope and all those who surround him, you will see more and more of this kind of madness and filth permeating the Church of Christ. He doesn't have to declare anything formally. All he has to do is put out the 'word' that he is giving permission for sodomy to be an acceptable 'inclusion' into the Church. It's beyond disgusting.ReplyDelete
The Vatican II cult is not the Church - if you cannot see this you are blind.ReplyDelete
Mr Poulin, what actions are you taking to restore the Church to what she once was? It sounds to me that you may have swallowed sedevacantist kool-aide. If so, you place your soul in grave danger. I hope I'm incorrect. At any rate, I'll tolerate no more gratuitous insults and bombastic outbursts.Delete
Just what has all the recognize but resist individuals done to retard the advances of modernism in the church? Going to approved Latin Masses is just another form of control.Individuals who attend approved Latin Masses cannot rock the boat too much. The church will never return until you shine the light of truth on them so everyone can see they have deviated from sacred tradition. As long as you provide them cover by by recognizing them as legitimate authorities they will continue to lead souls away from Jesus and truth toward evil and heresy.Delete
With respect, Catholicism never has, nor ever will need "Restoration". Our Church is indefectible and infallible - always was, is now and always will be. The Bride of Christ is without wrinkle, or blemish - always was, is now and always will be. This is Catholic dogma. Something must deteriorate before it can be restored. The Catholic Church cannot deteriorate - not now, or ever. Our Lord is perfect; He cannot deteriorate. His Church is perfect; it cannot deteriorate. The catholic Church cannot teach error harmful to the salvation of souls - the Holy Ghost will not permit that. So, what we see since Vatican II by way of sacrilege, heresy and the evil described in your post in the novus ordo church cannot be from a deteriorated Catholic Church - it must be, according to Catholic dogma, from something else. Something which is not and cannot be the Catholic Church. This nobody can in Catholic truth deny. Sedevacantism is nothing other than the pure, unadulterated Catholic Faith as professed from the time of Our Lord and His Apostles until 1958. Any Catholic, even a Pope, automatically loses any authority he may have in the Church ipso facto by committing the sin of heresy. His authority comes from God and is withdrawn by God. This is the teaching of Saints, Doctors, theologians, pre- VII canon law and Catholic Magisterium. Sedevacantism is not kool-aide, it is Catholic Truth. Please, I beg you, consider the matter with an open heart.
Yours in Christ,
Mr. Hixson, what have YOU done to correct modernism in the Church? And no, leaving the Church for a sedevacantist gathering accomplishes nothing except the endangerment of your own soul. Satan wants souls to leave the One True Church and he really doesn't care whether they exit "stage left" or "stage right".Delete
If one is Catholic one must accept what Peter Lamb states. There is no way around the truth for those who have conformed themselves to truth.Delete
I think the "word has been out" for many years now. What is happening in St. Matthew's Parish in Baltimore did not start under Pope Francis, but you are correct that it will flourish in his papacy like a pandemic without quarantines.ReplyDelete
Don't we all know of priests who have been persecuted for being anything less
than "inclusive" when it comes to preaching against the homosexual lifestyle.
I personally know of one priest who was sent to a homosexual treatment center under the pretext of a retreat because the gentle older priest's sermon was judged by the 'beloved' bishop to be "insensitive."
These men are Judas-priests. These bishops are heresiarchs and malefactors. Since they are poisoning the souls of the Faithful, they need to be driven from the Church as apostates. They need to be exposed; outed. We need to ask ourselves: are they being blackmailed? Have they covered up on abuse and are now ripe for blackmail? Are they homosexuals? Are they practicing sodomites? Schism is not the answer; why should we leave the Church? No, we remain - even if the Modernists force us to stand outside, shivering in the cold: we remain. We will not wander off to some synagogue of satan.ReplyDelete
You have just described the synagogue of satan, then say you would refuse to leave. St Athanasius was outside the buildings and the Mass of the heresiarchs. You should be too.Delete
This isn't the first time the Bride of Christ has been battered and abused by evil clerics. Even "Peter" has been a source of scandal in many centuries. Vatican II may have included vague terminology that made distorting doctrine easy for the dissenters, but it was an authentic meeting of the bishops in union with the pope. If sedevacantism is true then Jesus is a liar because he promised never to abandon His Church. No, we are in dire times predicted in the books of Daniel and Revelation, but the Holy Spirit will never abandon the rock of Peter no matter how corrupt Peter becomes.ReplyDelete
Let's all commit to praying for the pope and magisterium and fighting error. The Church is indefectable, she cannot err. But Christ told us she would be assaulted and Judas demonstrates that the assault would also come from within. This advent would be a good time for each of us to commit to pray and make reparation for the attacks on Holy Mother Church, especially those coming from the very men who should be defending her most vigorously -- ;the pope and magisterium. Viva Cristo Rey!
Might some Saints be able to help resolve our dilemma?ReplyDelete
St. Francis de Sales: – “Now when the Pope is explicitly a heretic, he
falls ipso facto from his dignity and out of the Church . . . ”
St. Robert Bellarmine: – “A Pope who is a manifest heretic
automatically ceases to be a Pope and head, just as he ceases
automatically to be a Christian and a member of the Church. Wherefore,
he can be judged and punished by the Church. This is the teaching of
all the ancient Fathers who teach that manifest heretics immediately
lose all jurisdiction.”
St. Alphonsus Liguori: – “If ever a Pope, as a private person, should
fall into heresy, he should at once fall from the Pontificate. If,
however, God were to permit a pope to become a notorious and
contumacious heretic, he would by such fact cease to be pope, and the
apostolic chair would be vacant.”
St. Antoninus: – “In the case in which the Pope would become a
heretic, he would find himself, by that very fact alone and without
any other sentence, separated from the Church. A head separated from a
body cannot, as long as it remains separated, be head of the same body
from which it was cut off.”
Are you saying the pope is a heretic?ReplyDelete
Sadly, yes I am. So were his predecessors John XXIII, Paul VI, John Paul II, Benedict XVI.Delete
Thank you for your post. It is sad to see the willfull blindness of folks decieved by vatican II satanic take over of church.Delete
You sedevacantists have no grasp of history whatsoever. In Church history, there have been truly wicked popes - Alexander VI comes immediately to mind. For all the saint-quoting done above, there is no justification even in these quotes for quitting the Church and her ordained clerics, lackluster though they may be. You deceive yourselves, perhaps to your eternal peril, if you think that acceptable.ReplyDelete
These are the last posts I'm going to allow along these veins. You have done nothing here but sit smug in your little schismatic enclaves and tut-tut the very people who are actually trying to address the wrongs that do plague the Church. You are serving no constructive purpose whatsoever - and I think you know that full well.
Thank you for this post, I live in Baltimore and it is somewhat of a shame that a city that is steeped in history of the faith in America that it is difficult to find a parish that strongly upholds the teachings of Christ. I would also point to St. Vincent as another church that works closely with St. Ignatius and one should be wary of (that said I do know that they also do some great work in the some of the poorest neighborhoods). I pray that Archbishop Lori can right the ship in the archdiocese, he has been a strong voice on the Fortnight of Freedom and has recently installed a new vocations director (they are far too few young men that are in the seminary from our diocese). It also seems that many priests seem reluctant to state the truth loudly since the city skews hardly to the left. I can't speak for those parishes in the suburbs, but I know in the city aside from a few parishes most priests tend to stay away from certain moral issues. Sadly, there is also only one TLM at St. Alphonsus and no parishes that I know even willing to offer Mass ad orientem.ReplyDelete
I'm in Baltimore as well and understand your dilemma first hand.ReplyDelete
Problem not only no TLM or mass ad orientem.
In my humble opinion since inception if vatican II bit by bit doctrinal issues that lead the Church away from Christ have been permeating Catholic teaching.
Example my Mother visiting one Christmas. I took her to church in Mt.Royal area the Priest was advocating same sex marriage!
My Mother needless to say sttod and left the mass. This was so humiliating.
Wrote then Catdinal at the time to have gim blatantly disregard my concern.
We very well may be in end times scenario. Guard you soul.
The resistance does not have an answer as it never moves forward.
Sedevacantist seem closer to what is happening, yet again acomplish nothing. Save keeping a remnant alive. Short of conclave resolving these current doctrinal heresy prevelent in vaticanII , what will save the True Church short of a miracle.
Any way G-D Bless, keep fighting the good fight.
