Lock, Stock and Barrel

More testimony from Bella Dodd came from an eye witness, an acquaintance of mine, now deceased, who actually heard Bella Dodd speak in the early 1950s.

Bella Dodd said that the Communists, at that point (1950s), had their men in the highest places in the Catholic Church. These men were working to bring about change so that the Church would no longer be effective against Communism. In the early 1950s, describing the changes that would take place in the future, Bella Dodd predicted “in 10 or 15 years, you will not recognize the Catholic Church. “

She explained that the tactic was to destroy not the institution of the Church, but rather the Faith of the people, and to even use the institution of the Church, if possible, to destroy the Faith through the promotion of a pseudo religion – something that resembles Catholicism, but is not quite the real thing.

Mrs. Dodd also claimed that the Communists were a driving force for the United Nations, and that the Communist owned the World Council Of Churches “lock, stock and barrel.” This is especially noteworthy since the world Council of Churches was a pioneer in “dialogue” and ecumenism. The World Council of Churches boasts that it is “the most nearly comprehensive instrument in the ecumenical movement in the world today.”

In Defiance

For the first time in our sacred history, in defiance of 2,000 years of Catholic Teaching, it is ecclesiastical policy to accept members of false religions as they are, rather than combat their errors and work to convert them to the one true Church of Christ. This is especially evident in the well-known statement by Cardinal Walter Kasper, then-prefect of the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity. Kasper said:

“… today we no longer understand ecumenism in the sense of a return, by which the others would ‘be converted’ and to return to being ‘Catholics’. This was especially abandoned at Vatican II.”

This statement, which scorns the thrice defined dogma that “outside the Church there is no salvation, “actually reflects the true “Spirit of Vatican II. “Father Joseph Ratzinger, in his 1966 book, `Theological Reflections of Vatican II’ , said the same thing about the Council’s new orientation to non-Catholics. Ratzinger explains:

“ The Catholic Church has no right to absorb the other Churches …[A] basic unity – of Churches that remain Churches, yet become one Church – must replace the idea of conversion, even though conversion retains its meaningfulness for those in conscience motivated to seek it.

Nine Promises

There are the Nine Promises from Our Lord to those who practice Devotion to the Holy Face. These promises were collated in the 1880s by the original propagators of the Devotion. The first two are promises given to Saint Gertrude and Saint Mechtilde and the remaining seven were given by Our Lord to Sister Marie de Saint-Pierre:

1. “They shall receive in themselves by the impression of My Humanity, a bright irradiation of My Divinity, and shall be so illuminated by It in their and most souls, they buy their inmost souls, that by their likeness to My Face, they shall shine more than any others in eternal life. [Saint Gertrude, Insinuations, Book IV, Ch. VII]

2. Saint Mechtilde asked Our Lord if those who celebrate the memory of His Holy Face should never be deprived of His amiable company. Our Lord replied, “Not one of them shall be separated from Me. “ [Saint Mechtilde, `Of Spiritual Grace’, Book 1, Ch. XIII]

3. “ Our Lord has promised me [says Sister Marie de Saint-Pierre] that He will imprint His Divine likeness on the souls of those who honor His most Holy Countenance. [January 21, 1847] “This adorable Face is, as it were, the seal of the Divinity, which has the virtue of reproducing the likeness of God in the souls that are applied to it.” [November 6, 1845]

4. “By My Holy Face you shall work miracles.” [October 27, 1845]

5. “By My Holy Face you will obtain the conversion of many sinners. Nothing that you ask in making this offer will be refused to. If you knew how pleasing the sight of My Face is to my Father.” [November 22,1846]

6. “As in an earthly kingdom you can procure all you wish with a coin marked with the princes effigy, so in the Kingdom of Heaven you may obtain all you desire with a precious coin of My Holy Humanity, which is My Adorable countenance. “ [October 29, 1845]

7. “All those who honor My Holy Face in a spirit of reparation will, by so doing, perform the office of the pious Veronica. “ [October 27, 1845]

8. “According to the care you take in making reparation to My Face disfigured by blasphemies, so will I take care of yours which has been disfigured by sin. I will reprint therein My image and render it as beautiful as it was on leaving the Baptismal font. “ [November 3, 1845]

9. “Our Lord has promised me, “says Sister Marie de Saint Pierre, “that all those who defend His cause in this work of reparation, by words, by prayers, or in writing, He will defend before His Father; at their death He will purify their souls by effacing all the blots of sin and will restore to them their primitive beauty.” [March 12, 1846]
