EXODUS II: Escaping the New World Order (Part TWO)



EXODUS II:  Escaping the New World Order (Part TWO)
By:  Eric Gajewski

There are still so many people who are ignorant of the New World Order.  What do I mean when I say a New World Order and what is the Old World Order?  The Old World Order was Christendom.  We will only have true peace in this world once hearts come back to Christ and the Catholic Faith through the Blessed Virgin Mary.  There is NO other path.  A good portion of the world was once unified in Faith in the Catholic religion but over centuries due to heresy Christendom has been broken down.  The Gospel of our Lord has been replaced by Vatican II and a “feel good humanitarianism” which is only paving the way for the False Prophet and Antichrist.  It is void of the true Gospel and Faith.  How do we escape all that which surrounds us today? Whether it be false doctrine or the immoral filth being shoved down our throats.  Let me now continue on in this analysis between the crisis of Moses time and our own.

FORTY YEARS OF FIDELITY TO CATHOLIC TRADITION

FORTY YEARS OF FIDELITY TO CATHOLIC TRADITION
 40th Anniversary of the Priesthood of Monsignor Jean-Michel Faure

Sent by Monsignor Lefebvre as an apostle to our American lands, he was first Superior of the District of South America (FSSPX), Director of the Seminary of the Reja (FSSPX), District Superior of Mexico (FSSPX), and as Mgr. " Archbishop Lefebvre's right-hand arm in Latin America for decades, the Father enjoyed unlimited confidence on the part of the Archbishop (he was the only one who had access to his private correspondence) and in fact, it is said that Monsignor Lefebvre wanted to consecrate him Bishop, but The Father refused in humility. Thanks to this great friendship and trust, Father Faure had the grace to know and understand as few as our Founder . " By this fidelity to the good fight without compromises with the enemies of the catholic faith, was persecuted by the liberals that they copied the Brotherhood and they betrayed to the Founder.

Brandon Smith: “Next Phase of Collapse Will Include the End of the Dollar as We Know It”

Brandon Smith: “Next Phase of Collapse Will Include the End of the Dollar as We Know It”

The Federal Reserve Is A Saboteur – And The “Experts” Are Oblivious
I have written on the subject of the Federal Reserve’s deliberate sabotage of the U.S. economy many times in the past. In fact, I even once referred to the Fed as an “economic suicide bomber.” I still believe the label fits perfectly, and the Fed’s recent actions I think directly confirm my accusations.
Back in 2015, when I predicted that the central bankers would shift gears dramatically into a program of consistent interest rate hikes and that they would begin cutting off stimulus to the U.S. financial sector and more specifically stock markets, almost no one wanted to hear it. The crowd-think at that time was that the Fed would inevitably move to negative interest rates, and that raising rates was simply “impossible.”

Breaking: China Attacks India – Strong Implications for WW III

Breaking: China Attacks India – Strong Implications for WW III
Breaking news as China attacks India in an event that could culminate in World War III:
“As Prime Minister Narendra Modi was preparing to meet Donald and Melania Trump at the White House, China on Monday launched a scathing attack on the Indian Army accusing it of stopping the construction of a road in what it called its “sovereign territory” in the Sikkim section of the India-China border.”
This conflict did not remain just a war of words for long as the Russian media is collectively reporting that the Chinese crossed the border and destroyed two Indian bunkers in the Sikkim region of the Chinese-Indian border.
Yes it is absolutely true, China and crossed the Indian border and has attacked and destroyed two bunkers. This is very serious. Because of arch-rival India’s involvement, it would not take much to encourage Pakistan to become involved as well.

Spiritual Wickedness in High Places: Malachi Martin on The End of Religion (As We Know It)

Spiritual Wickedness in High Places: Malachi Martin on The End of Religion (As We Know It)
(Note: The following was one of the last interviews by Malachi Martin before his death in 1999.)

      Ever since Nimrod and the Tower of Babel, the Power Elite have never given up on their feverish dream of a One World Government.

      Former Jesuit Malachi Martin's novel, Windswept House (Doubleday/ Main Street Books), offers a lurid behind the scenes look at a cabal of Vatican insiders who want to use the Roman Catholic Church as a foundation for a politico-religious New World Order.

      The plot of the novel involves a group of Church officials who scheme with a group of like-minded corporate executives to manipulate the Church into a ready-made infrastructure for a One World Religion -- a universal umbrella for everybody from Episcopalians to voodoo practitioners.

      The new ecumenicalism is clothed in Globalist garb. The agenda includes promoting issues like population control, environmentalism and secular humanism, which the plotters hope will eventually lead to the complete secularization of religion.

Signs in the sun: The sun is set to 'change form,' says NASA
 During a solar minimum, certain types of activity, such as sunspots and solar flares will drop - but NASA also expects the development of long-lived phenomena including coronal holes.

The sun's magnetic field weakens during solar minimums, thus providing less shielding to the earth. With our protective shield thus weakened, the number of galactic cosmic rays that reach the earth's upper atmosphere increases.

A growing rift among the “Fatimists”

A growing rift among the “Fatimists”
As Cornelia Ferreira mentioned in her inaugural post here at akaCatholic, Fatima Through the Lens of Vatican II: As Illustrated by Raymond Cardinal Burke:
The WAF/Blue Army has long broadcast the Vatican’s Party Line on Fatima. Now an International Public Association of Pontifical Right, it claims it’s “the only Fatima organization in the world which speaks ‘in the name of the Church’ and ‘with the authority of the Church on Fatima.”
Its “charisma” is “the New Evangelization of the world through the authentic Message of Fatima.” Its “responsibility” is to “guard the purity of the message.”

ONE WORLD RELIGION WATCH: Canadian archbishop promotes Gay Pride ‘multi-faith’ service

Novus Ordo: Canadian archbishop promotes Gay Pride ‘multi-faith’ service 
A Canadian "Catholic" bishop has announced in his archdiocesan bulletin that a pro-homosexual “Pride … multi-faith service” will take place next month at a Catholic retreat center run by religious sisters within the archdiocese. 
A priest in the Archdiocese who is on the committee organizing the event has previously criticized Catholic teaching on marriage and sexuality as “embarrassing” and as an attempt to “suppress” homosexuals who “wish to live a more open, honest and healthier lifestyle.”
The announcement titled “Pride St. John’s Multi-faith Service” appeared in the June 25 bulletin for the Archdiocese of St. John, Newfoundland, overseen by Archbishop Martin Currie.
“As part of the St. John’s LGBTQ+ Pride Celebrations this year, there will be a second Multi-Faith Service. People of faith will come together to share their reflections on the theme: Moving Forward with Hope,” states the bulletin.


Novus Ordo: "Religion does not interest me because it does not address the issues"

Novus Ordo:  "Religion does not interest me because it does not address the issues"
The New World Order wants to put an end to Dogmatism.  Here is further proof.
Despite very little publicity, "Disarming Beauty" has become an editorial success. Its author presides over the movement Communion and Liberation, and approaches the profound crisis that affects our time in a new way.

JULIÁN CARRÓN
President, Communion and Liberation
"We see it in relationships with friends, in relationships at home with children, in relationships with colleagues... that it is difficult to agree on even the most elementary things. This means that the nature of the crisis reaches such a deep level that it affects everyone's life."

Cardinal Pell, Vatican finance chief, charged over historic allegations of sexual abuse

Cardinal Pell, Vatican finance chief, charged over historic allegations of sexual abuse 
“Police have charged Cardinal George Pell with historical sexual assault offenses,” Deputy Commissioner Shane Patton of the Australian state of Victoria announced. “Cardinal Pell has been charged on summons and he is required to appear at the Melbourne Magistrates Court on July 18 this year for a filing hearing.”

“Cardinal Pell is facing multiple charges in respect of historic sexual offenses and there are multiple complainants relating to those charges,” Patton continued.
In a statement to journalists at the Vatican press office early Thursday morning, Pell said Francis had granted him a leave from his role as prefect of the Secretariat of the Economy to return to Australia and answer the charges against him. “I’m looking forward finally to having my day in court,” said Pell. “I’m innocent of these charges. They are false. The whole idea of sexual abuse is abhorrent to me.”

Homosexual Vatican Monsignor Arrested: Drugs And Gay Parties

Homosexual Vatican Monsignor Arrested: Drugs And Gay Parties
Il Fatto Quotidiano writes, that the Holy See's Gendarmerie disrupted a homosexual drug-party in an apartment of the Palazzo del Sant'Uffizio in Rome, where also the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith is located. The apartment belongs to a monsignor, who was caught red-handed. According to Il Fatto Quotidiano, he is the secretary of a cardinal who heads a dicastery of the Roman Curia and who had proposed the monsignor to become a bishop.

The monsignor was brought to the Roman clinic Pio XI in order to be detoxified. He is now in a monastery in Italy. His apartment was not destined for simple monsignors. He also drove an exclusive car with Vatican license plates, which are reserved for higher Vatican dignitaries.

Il Fatto Quotidiano writes that the cardinal, for whom the monsignor was working, is well over 75. This is only true for two cardinals at the Roman Curia, Cardinal Angelo Amato (79) of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, and pro-gay Cardinal Francesco Cocopalmerio (79) of the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts.

Francis Imposes Concelebration For Priests Living in Rome

Francis Imposes Concelebration For Priests Living in Rome
You shouldnt be going to the New Mas at all!  It is illicit and schismatic!
 Roberto de Mattei writes in Corrispondenza Romana about a secret working paper of the Congregation for the Clergy, which is circulating in Roman Seminaries and Collegios, i.e. houses where priests, who study in Rome live. The paper wants that the young priests stop saying Holy Mass and participate instead in mass-concelebrations.

According to De Mattei, already on April 1st 2017 Pope Francis tried to denigrate the celebration of Mass as "individualism" and recommended concelebration instead, while addressing priests, who study in Rome.

According to De Mattei, the working paper writes in bold that "the concelebrated Mass is to be preferred to the individual celebration". The paper invites the superiors of the Collegios to encourage this by having up to three concelebrations a day.

De Mattei points out, that this new disposition violates Canon 902 of the Code of Canon Law according to which priests "can concelebrate the Eucharist" but "they are completely free to celebrate the Eucharist individually."
 

Just War According To Catholic Teaching

Just War According To Catholic Teaching
 The great Saint Augustine provided the basis of Catholic doctrine about just war.
Considering whether war is always bad or if there are circumstances when it can be just, he wrote:
According to the Gospel of Saint Luke, Saint John the Baptist preached a baptism of penance inviting all to convert and change their lives. People from all walks of life came to him and asked what they must do to change. This precursor of Christ answered each according to his circumstances. “And the soldiers also asked him, saying: And what shall we do? And he said to them: Do violence to no man; neither calumniate any man; and be content with your pay” (Luke 3:14).

EXODUS II: Escaping the New World Order (Part One)



EXODUS II:  Escaping the New World Order (Part One)
By:  Eric Gajewski

There are many similarities between the present Church crisis and the crisis facing the Israelites in the Old Testament.  No, we are not talking about the puppet state of “Israel” claiming to be the descendants of the “Chosen People” for that is one the biggest shams of our modern times.  Rather, we are talking about the Catholic Church, Christ’s Church, which is now infiltrated from within but also “surrounded” out in the secular world.  Catholics are God’s chosen no matter their nationality and we are faced with a crisis which has no human answer but alone is reserved for God.  The Church is the One Ark of Salvation outside of which no man can be saved.  Ultimately, He will deliver us from the New World Order through the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary.  Moses, once cried, “Let my people go” and the same voice can be heard today.  Let us walk through the Book of Exodus and provide some analysis from Scriptures that resonate loudly and are applicable in our times.

Satanic New World Order Unmasked: Hexagram & "Star of David"

New World Order Unmasked: Hexagram & "Star of David"

Six-Pointed Star: Its Origin and Usage by O. J. Graham  The first mention of the star was in Amos 5:26 regarding the trek from Egypt to Canaan. Then in 922 B.C., when Solomon married the daughter of Pharoah and went into magic and witchcraft and built an altar to Ashtoroth and Moloch. The book traces the six pointed star from Egypt to Solomon, to Arab Magic and Witchcraft, to Druid use(references are documented). The book traces the star through Freemasonry usage to Mayer Amschel Bauer, who, in the 17th century, changed his name to depict the red six-pointed star (or shield) which he had hung on his door in Germany, and thus began the family of "Red Shield" or Rothschild. The research carried on through this family, to their court of arms, to Cabala, to Astrology, to Hitler and his putting a yellow six-pointed star on all Jews during the holocaust, to the Zionist symbol, and finally to the flag of the State of Israel and beyond.

Crisis in the Church: British author challenges dubia cardinals, calls abuse of "Pope" ‘satanic

Crisis in the Church: British author challenges dubia cardinals, calls abuse of "Pope" ‘satanic
British Author = Satanic
ROME - In an essay published by “Vatican Insider” today in three languages, a British Catholic author has challenged the four cardinals who submitted a set of dubia, or doubts, about Amoris Laetitia to "Pope" Francis to drop their opposition, arguing they’re largely wrong on the merits and fueling abuse directed at the pontiff and his supporters.
“We cannot come to any other conclusion than "Pope" Francis …has legitimately made possible the reception of Holy Communion for the divorced and remarried in certain carefully considered cases where grace is working in their souls, and a sincere desire to strive for holiness is present,” Stephen Walford writes.
“If we cannot accept this premise,” Walford adds, “then we are not accepting the teaching of previous popes.”

(Coming To America) Shock Footage: Protester Shot Dead On Live TV During Venezuelan Riots
Socialism never works.  The New World Order will fail.
We’ve repeatedly warned our readers that a collapse of life as we know it in America would quickly devolve into violence, looting and outright anarchy. As the economic landscape in America deteriorates it is likely only a matter of time before millions of starving Americans make their way to the streets in protest. When that happens they’ll be met with a heavily armed response. It’ll start with tear gas and rubber bullets, but that won’t be enough to stave off the starving and hopeless masses, so we can fully expect real bullets to start flying in short order.

Martial Law by Executive Order

Martial Law by Executive Order
Martial Law is coming as Planet x gets closer.  It will occur after the after economic collapse.

“The National Defense Resources Preparedness Executive Order of March 16, 2012 did to the country as a whole what the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act did to the Constitution in particular- completely eviscerates any due process or judicial oversight for any action by the Government deemed in the interest of “national security.” Like the NDAA, the Executive Order puts the government completely above the law, which, in a democracy, is never supposed to happen. The United States is essentially now under martial law without the exigencies of a national emergency.

Breaking: "Massive Cyberattack" Spreads Across Europe, Hits Ukraine, Russia, UK, Denmark

Update: in addition to the below listed companies, all of which appear to have been targeted in the global cyberattack including Russia's Rosneft and metals giant Evraz, Danish shipper Maersk, UK ad company WPP, the Ukraine central bank, government and airport, more targets are emerging including Norway's national security authority which has said that a Ransomeware attack is ongoing in Norway "similar to the attack on Maersk", while Russia's Home Credit Bank said all domestic branches are closed because of the cyber attack.
As the Spectator adds, companies in Spain are also now affected by the cyberattack which appears to be a modification of the "WannaCry" virus, and has been named "Petya."
A Moscow-based cyber security firm, Group-IB, said it appeared to be a coordinated attack simultaneously targeting victims in Russia and Ukraine, according to Reuters.


The imminent EMP threat

The imminent EMP threat
There are four countries, two orbiting satellites and the object we know as Planet X that can and probably will cause an imminent EMP event over America. How Planet X does this is covered in my book. My book has several chapters dedicated to knowledge and preparation. In this article I’ll cover the rest of the threat.
The four countries are Iran, North Korea, Russia and China. I consider the two top candidates Russia and North Korea. It’s Russia that has provided North Korea with EMP weaponry. North Korea and Iran both have satellites that pass over the U.S. mainland daily. We don’t know what’s aboard those satellites; it could well be EMP weaponry.


(VIDEO) The Jewish Ritual Murder of Christian Children

The Jewish Ritual Murder of Christian Children
WARNING: Sensitive Material
 Whenever the accusation of ritual murder is made against the Jews they always claim that this a libel against them and act as if this has already been proved somewhere. They rely upon people’s incredulity that a group of people living in their midst could carry out such heinous crimes. Yet there has never yet been a case of libel brought against any of their accusers in the ritual murder cases and there have literally been hundreds of recorded instances of it, throughout the time we have had Jews living among us. These cases against the Jews were tried in some of the highest courts in the land, with the Jews having the best lawyers along with the King’s protection, yet they were still found guilty in the vast majority of cases.

Caution Francis Doesn't Speak: "Francis Wants Dialogue With Everybody Except With His Own Cardinals"

Caution Francis Doesn't Speak: "Francis Wants Dialogue With Everybody Except With His Own Cardinals"
Francis enjoys doughnuts and dialogue time with seemingly everyone except some Cardinals.  Let us all pray for an end to the Vatican II Revolution
On June 22nd the vaticanista Edward Pentin explained on EWTN that "Pope " Francis does not answer the Dubia of the four Cardinals, because he “wants this ambiguity” about communion for adulterers and envisions casuistic decisions.

He further explains that the division in the Church, the conflicting views of bishops’ conferences around the world, are created “by a sort of apostasy”. (sorta??)

For Pentin it is unlikely that the "Pope" will respond to the Dubia. He finds it ironic that “the Pope" does want to dialogue with everybody else but not with his own Cardinals.”

UNWORTHY COMMUNION by Fr. Franz Hunolt, 1887

UNWORTHY COMMUNION by Fr. Franz Hunolt, 1887


And whilst they were eating, he said: Amen I say to you, that one of you is about to betray me. And they being very much troubled, began every one to say: Is it I, Lord? But he answering, said: He that dippeth his hand with me in the dish, he shall betray me. The Son of man indeed goeth, as it is written of him: but woe to that man by whom the Son of man shall be betrayed: it were better for him, if that man had not been born. And Judas that betrayed him, answering, said: Is it I, Rabbi? He saith to him: Thou hast said it.--Matth 26: 21-25

Fellay and Fr. Simoulin

Fr. Simoulin, currently based at the St. Joseph College of Carmes in France, is one of the most notorious accords of the Neo-FSSPX. Since he was Superior of the District of Italy, when negotiations with Rome began in 2001, Father Simoulin did not hide his desire to reach an agreement:
If tomorrow the conciliar church, by mistake or even by calculation, but always by providential disposition, gave us the means, without having to deny anything, change nothing, promise nothing, but serve the Church and the truth - serve The Catholic Church buried beneath it to help revive it with all its supernatural forces (Mass, sacraments, doctrine, moral discipline) and gradually get rid of the spirit of the council, are we really obliged to refuse to contact and consider the arrangement of Our situation, under the pretext that they are all criminals? ... They also tell me: that Rome is converted and then we will see. My answer is identical; It is not Catholic to depend on a miracle. Rome will not be converted if no one works in it, if no one is recognized as "valid interlocutor", in a true theological debate to return the truth to his throne. ( Rome Felix , February 2001)

Days of Lot: Sesame Street celebrates LGBT during Gay Pride Month

Days of Lot: Sesame Street celebrates LGBT during Gay Pride Month 
In a surprise "Pride Month" move, the iconic children’s show, Sesame Street, announced its support for the LGBT movement.
The show’s official Twitter account displays an image of Sesame Street’s biggest celebrity character, Elmo, next to his multi-colored Muppet friends – a clear tribute to the "Gay Pride" rainbow flag.
In a kind of one-two punch, the combined illustration and message abandon any notion of childhood innocence while simultaneously promoting the politicization and sexualization of kids.

Rumors About Secret Vatican Commission Confirmed

Rumors About Secret Vatican Commission Confirmed
For two months rumours have been spreading that a secrete Vatican commission is about to reinterpret Paul VI's encyclical Humanae vitae, which forbids artificial contraception.

On June 16th Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, the president of the Pontifical Academy for Life, whose truthfulness is under dispute, denied these rumours on catholicnewsagency.com: “I can confirm that there is no pontifical commission called to re-read or to re-interpret Humanae vitae.”

But on June 26th the vaticanista Andrea Gagliarducci confirmed, that such a secrete commission indeed exists. Only, it is not called a "pontifical commission" but a "study group". It will publish a paper on Humanae vitae.

The group is lead by Monsignor Gilfredo Marengo (62), a relativist and supporter of Amoris Laetitia, and sponsored by Archbishop Paglia's Academy for Life.

Our Lady of Perpetual Help – June 27

Our Lady of Perpetual Help – June 27

Prof. Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira
 
Devotion to Our Lady of the Perpetual Help was born on the Island of Crete. This explains the Byzantine influence one notices in the picture. The persons represented in this picture may shock the modern sensibility accustomed to saints depicted with the faces of dolls. This picture was made in different times and is very expressive.

The devotion to Our Lady of Perpetual Help was spread in the Church by the Redemptorist priests. It is a very beautiful invocation since it expresses Our Lady’s invariable mercy toward us. Perpetual help means an assistance, an act of mercy, an act of uninterrupted piety that never ceases toward us. The word never means that this assistance will not cease anywhere, any time or for any reason. That is, even if a person is in the worst possible situation, Our Lady always will help one who prays to her.
