Sister Saint-Pierre

For our final considerations, we will discuss how Sister Saint-Pierre served as a precursor and foundation to Our Lady’s visitations at Fatima. For the sake of brevity, we limit our focus to three points.

First: Our Lord [to Sister Saint-Pierre] and Our Lady of Fatima both warned of the need for prayer and penance for the salvation of souls.

Our Lord showed Sister Saint-Pierre “the multitude of souls falling into Hell “and told her to “pray -fervently” for their conversion. He gave her the Golden Arrow prayer, pledging it as a “torrent of grace” for sinners.

Likewise, Our Lady of Fatima showed the children the vision of Hell. Likewise, Our Lady of Fatima showed the children the vision of Hell. She then said: “You have seen Hell where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to My Immaculate Heart.”

Mortalium Animos

This is one of the many reasons why the Church always forbade the type of ecumenical practice propagated since Vatican II, because it places the One True Religion established by Our Lord on the same base level as man-made creeds.

In fact, 2000 years of Catholic Teaching condemning ecumenism is summarized in Pope Pius XI’s 1928 encyclical, Mortalium Animos, which was a prophetic, wholesale condemnation of Vatican II‘s ecumenism. It was here that Pope Pius warned:

“… it is clear that the Apostolic See can by no means take part in these assemblies, or it is in any way lawful for Catholics to give such [ecumenical] enterprise their encouragement and support. For if they did so, they would be giving countenance to a false Christianity, quite alien to the one Church of Christ. “

Likewise, the Scriptural condemnation of religious affiliation with non-Catholics is masterfully demonstrated by Bishop George Hay, especially in his book The Sincere Christian, under the heading, “On Communicating In Religion with Those who are Separated from the Church of Christ. “

Where There Is No Hatred of Heresy, There Is No Holiness.

This new orientation, that claims that non-Catholics need not convert because they are “in some mysterious way “part of the Church of Christ, defies the Churches perennial teaching on the necessity of non-Catholics to abandon their errors and return to the one true Church of Jesus Christ, as was summed up in Pius XII’s 1949 Instruction on the Ecumenical Movement:

“True reunion can only come about by the return of dissidents to the the one true Church of Christ the Catholic Church.”

Further, this refusal to combat heresy particularly the heresy of Protestantism, brings to mind the words of the renowned 19th Century writer, Father Frederick Faber, who said, “Where there is no hatred of heresy, there is no holiness. “

What Then

It is certain, my Lord, that in these days withdrawl from the world means no sacrifice at all. Since worldly people have so little respect for Thee, what can we expect them to have for us? Can it be that we deserve that they should treat us any better than they have treated Thee? Have we done more for them than Thou hast done that they should be friendly to us? What then? What can we expect- we who, through the goodness of the Lord, are free from that pestilential infection, and do not, like those others, belong to the devil? They have won severe punishment at his hand and their pleasures have richly earned them eternal fire. So to eternal fire they will have to go, though none the less it breaks my heart to see so many souls traveling to perdition. I would the evil were not so great and I did not see more being lost every day.

God Never Fails To Help

“At about this time there came to my notice the harm and havoc that were being wrought in France by these Lutherans in the way in which their unhappysect was increasing. This troubled me very much, and, as though I could do anything, or be of any help in the matter, I worked before the Lord and entreated Him to remedy this great evil. I felt that I would have laid down 1000 lives to save a single one of all the souls who were being lost there. And, seeing that I was a woman, and a sinner, and incapable of doing all I should like in the Lord’s service, and as my whole yearning was, and still is, that, as He has so many enemies and so few friends, these last should be trusty ones, I determined to do the little that was in me namely, to follow the evangelical counsels as perfectly as I could, and to see that these few nuns who are here should do the same, confiding in the great goodness of God, Who never fails to help those who resolve to forsake everything for His sake.

As they are all that I have ever painted them as being in my desires, I hoped that their virtues would more than counteract my defects, and I should thus be able to give the Lord some pleasure, and all of us, by busying ourselves in prayer for those who are defenders of the Church, and for the preachers and learned men who defend Her, should do everything we could to aid this Lord of mine Who is so much oppressed by those to whom He has shown so much good that it seems as though these traitors would send Him to the Cross again and that He would have nowhere to lay His Head.”

How Does The Catholic Sin Against Faith?

The Catechism then asks “How does the Catholic sin against Faith? “

Answer: “A Catholic sins against Faith by apostasy, heresy, indifferentism and by taking part in non-Catholic worship.”

By taking part in non-Catholic worship!

This, indeed, is a powerful indictment against the present ecumenical practice that has swept through and disfigured the Church since the Council.

Thanks to ecumenism, we witnessed the unprecedented scandal of Catholic prelates, Priests and laity praying in public with members of false religions, and even conducting this interdenominational worship [which is no worship at all] inside Protestant churches. We see our highest leaders in the Church dialoguing with heresy, rather than combating it openly and courageously.

Heavens Warnings

Our emphasis up to this point has been Heavens warnings about violations of the Second and Third Commandments, which are the sins of blasphemy and the profanation of Sundays. Yet Our Lord, in the above quotation is complaining of more. He mentions specifically “violations of the first three Commandments, which include the First Commandment:

“ I am the Lord thy God, though shalt not have strange gods before Me. “

What then constitutes a sin against the First Commandment? The answer is found in the Catechism of the Council of Trent, the Catechism of Pope Saint Pus X, and the Baltimore Catechism:

In summary, the First Commandment forbids idolatry, superstition, spiritism, tempting God, sacrilege, and sins against Faith.
