So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter (2 Thess. 2:15). Guard what has been entrusted to you. Avoid the godless chatter and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge, for by professing it some have missed the mark as regards faith (1 Tim. 6:21-22).

Tradition-minded Catholics can look forward to the day when... .

  1. ... the Faith is confidently taught without communicating ambiguity by priests, bishops and the pope...
  2. ... Catholics wake up to the dangers in our midst and act to defend Holy Mother Church by demonstrating an unwavering conviction to the Truth...
  3. ... dissent is crushed by the Truth spoken in love...
  4. ... respect for Tradition is a given among all Catholics...
  5. ... attention to beauty returns to all Roman Catholic liturgies...
  6. ... parishes become refuges of peace and the adoration of God...
  7. ... evangelization is done boldly and with conviction to the Truth that all people are called to a loving communion with Jesus Christ and His Church...
... because we have hope born of the grace of God.

Until that day arrives, Tradition-minded Catholics must strive for holiness and must work and pray for individuals and the Church.

We must always be ready to give reason for the hope that is within us (1 Peter 3:15)!

Disorder of Malta. Defilement and Fleece.

It would seem that the Order of Malta and Development & Peace have something in common. Is it fair to say that both organizations have been corrupted by the world, the flesh and the devil?

It seems that far too many Catholic relief agencies—one is too many—have lost sight of the Church's primary mission: interceding for the salvation of souls.

A lack of a sense of sin results in senseless behaviour that undermines the mission of the Church.

Meanwhile, these so-called "aid" agencies are permitted to fleece the flock of Christ and infect people's lives with death. They are no different from the secular "aid" agencies that mislead donors and which spread the culture of death among the disadvantaged and those who are most vulnerable.

Pray that groups which call themselves Catholic may be(come again) exemplary in their witness to Jesus Christ.

Exclusive: Order of Malta projects distributed abortifacients, says leaked report 
The 2016 report also said Malteser International's official policy was 'inconsistent with Church teaching'

A 2015 internal report into Malteser International found that some projects were distributing contraceptives which could cause abortion.

The report, seen by the Catholic Herald, was written by three leading bioethicists: Dr Peter Weir, Professor Luke Gormally and Professor John Haas. It was sent to hundreds of Order of Malta members around the world.

The Order of Malta, of which Malteser International (MI) is part, commissioned the report in 2015, after concerns were raised about possible distribution of contraceptives by MI projects.

The report’s authors stated: “We have been informed that MI supplies Levonorgestrel to rape victims on request and intramuscular (IM) Depo-Provera for birth spacing where NFP [natural family planning, which the Church approves] is deemed inappropriate.”

Both substances, the authors noted, “could have an abortifacient as well as a contraceptive mode of action”. MI’s stated policy was not to distribute potential abortifacients.

The wayward practices of Development and Peace.

Development and Peace (D&P), it as been reported on more than one occasion (and noted here), supports un-Catholic activity, activity which is gravely immoral and which constitutes a betrayal of Catholics who gave their money to an organization they thought conformed to Catholic teaching.
“We can’t have Catholic money going to organizations that don’t have respect for human life from the very time of conception onward,” said Jim Hughes, president of Campaign Life Coalition, Canada’s national pro-life, pro-family political lobby group.

“It’s time for the bishops to shake this whole thing up and put into positions of authority people who are going to be careful about whom they hire and which organizations they give money to,” Hughes told LifeSiteNews.

Until such a time that D&P can be trusted to carry out its mission in complete conformity to Catholic teaching, Catholics must stop giving support of any kind to D&P.
