Seventeenth Sunday After Pentecost

 Rev. Fr. Leonard Goffine's

The Church's Year

At the Introit of the Mass the justice and mercy of God are praised:

INTROIT Thou art just, O Lord, and thy judgment is right; deal with thy servant according to thy mercy. Blessed are the undefiled in the way; who walk in the law of the Lord. (Ps. CXVIII.) Glory be to the Father and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost, as it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

COLLECT Grant to Thy people, we beseech Thee, O Lord, to avoid the defilements of the devil, and with a pure mind to follow Thee, the only God. Through our Lord Jesus Christ Thy Son, who liveth and reigneth with Thee, in the Unity of the Holy Ghost, God, world without end, Amen.

EPISTLE (Ephes. IV. 1- 6.) Brethren, I, a prisoner in the Lord, beseech you that you walk worthy of the vocation in which you are called. With all humility and mildness, with patience, supporting one another in charity, careful to keep the unity of the spirit in the bond of peace. One body and one spirit, as you are called in one hope of your calling. One Lord, one faith, one baptism. One God, and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in us all. Who is blessed for ever and ever. Amen.

ADMONITION Implore God continually for grace to accomplish and make certain your vocation by practicing these virtues, recommended by St. Paul.


One Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all. (Ephes. IV. 5. 6.)

These words of the great Apostle of the Gentiles show clearly, that it is not a matter of indifference, what faith or religion we profess. Yet in our times so poor in faith, we often hear the assertion from so-called enlightened men: “It is all the same to what religion we belong, we can be saved in any, if we only believe in God and live uprightly." This assertion is impious! Consider, dear Christian, there is but one God, and this one God has sent only one Redeemer; and this one Redeemer has preached but one doctrine, and has established but one Church. Had God wished that there should be more than one Church, then Christ would have founded them, nay, He would not have preached a new doctrine, established a new, Christian Church; for the Jews also believed in one God. But Jesus cast aside Paganism and Judaism, promulgated a new religion, and founded a new Church. Nowhere does He speak of Churches, but always of one Church. He says that we must hear this Church, and does not add, that if we will not hear this Church, we may hear some other. He speaks of only one shepherd, one flock, and one fold, into which all men are to be brought. In the same manner He speaks always of one kingdom upon earth, just as there is only one kingdom in heaven; of only one master of the house and one family, of one field and one vineyard, whereby He referred to His Church; of one rock, upon which He would build His Church. On the day before His death, He prayed fervently to His Heavenly Father, that all who believe in Him, might be and remain one, as He and the Father are one, and He gave His disciples the express command to preach His gospel to all nations, and to teach them all things, whatsoever He had commanded them. This command the apostles carried out exactly. Everywhere they preached one and the same doctrine, establishing in all places Christian communities, which were all united by the bond of the same faith. Their principal care was to prevent schisms in faith, they warned the faithful against heresy, commanded all originators of such to be avoided, and anathematized those who preached a gospel different from theirs. As the apostles, so did their successors. All the holy Fathers speak with burning love of the necessary unity of faith, and deny those all claim to salvation who remain knowingly in schism and separation from the true Church of Christ.

Learn hence, dear Christian, that there can be but one true Church; if there is but one true Church, it naturally follows that in her alone salvation can be obtained, and the assertion that we can be saved by professing any creed, is false and impious. Jesus who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life , speaks of but one Church , which we must hear, if we wish to be saved. He who does not hear the Church, He says, should be considered as a heathen and publican. He speaks furthermore of one fold, and He promises eternal life only to those sheep who belong to this fold, obey the voice of the shepherd and feed in His pasture. The apostles were also convinced that only the one, true Church could guide us to salvation. Without faith it is impossible to please God, writes St. Paul to the Hebrews, (XI. 6.) and this faith is only one, he teaches the Ephesians. (IV. 5.) If the apostles had believed that we could be saved in any religion, they would certainly not have contended so strenuously for unity, they would not have declared so solemnly, that we should not belong to any other than to Christ alone, and that we must receive and obey His doctrine. As the apostles taught so did their successors and all the Fathers agree that there is no salvation outside of the true Church. St. Cyprian writes: "If any one outside Noah's ark could find safety, then also will one outside the Church find salvation." (De unit. eccl. c. 7.) From all this it follows, that there is only one true Church which insures salvation, out of which no one can be saved.

But which is this Church? The Roman Catholic, Apostolic Church, for she alone was founded, by Christ, she alone was watered with the blood of the apostles and of thousands of holy martyrs, she alone has the marks of the true Church of Christ, [see the Instruction for the first Sunday after Easter] against which He has promised that the powers of hell shall not prevail. Those who fell away from the Church three hundred years ago do, indeed contend that the Church fell into error and no longer possessed the true, pure gospel of Jesus. Were they right, Jesus might be blamed, for He established this Church, promising to remain with her and guide her through the Holy Ghost until the end of the world. He would, therefore, have broken His word, or He was not powerful enough to keep it. But who dare say this? On the contrary, she has existed for eighteen hundred years, whilst the greatest and most powerful kingdoms have been overthrown, and the firmest thrones crumbled away. If she were not the only true and saving Church, founded by Christ, how could she have existed so long, since Jesus Himself said: Every plant which my heavenly Father hath not planted, shall be rooted up. (Matt. XV. 13.) If she were not the Church of Christ, she would have been destroyed long ago, but she still stands today, whilst her enemies' who battled against her have disappeared, and will continue to disappear; for the gates of hell shall not prevail against her, says our Lord. He has kept His promise and will keep it, notwithstanding all the oppositions and calumnies of her implacable enemies.

You see, therefore, my dear Christian, that the Catholic Church is the only true, the only saving Church; be not deceived by those who are neither cold nor warm, and who say: "We can be saved in any religion, if we only believe in God and live uprightly," and who wish to rob you of your holy faith, and precipitate you into the sea of doubt, error, and falsehood. Outside of the Catholic Church there is no salvation; hold this firmly, for it is the teaching of Jesus, His apostles, and all the Fathers; for this doctrine the apostles and a countless host .of 'the faithful have shed their blood. Obey the teaching of this Church, follow her laws, make use of her help and assistance, and often raise your hands and heart to heaven to thank God for the priceless grace of belonging to this one, true Church; forget not to pray for your erring brethren, who are still outside of the Church that the Lord may lead them into her, that His promise may be fulfilled: There will be one fold, and one shepherd.

Tenth Sunday After PentecostGOSPEL (Matt XXII. 35-46.) At that time, The Pharisees came to Jesus, and one of them, a doctor of the law, asked him, tempting him: Master, which is the great commandment of the law? Jesus said to him: Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and with thy whole soul, and with thy whole mind.

This is the greatest and the first commandment. And the second is like to this: Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments dependeth the whole law and the prophets. And the Pharisees being gathered together, Jesus asked them, saying: What think you of Christ; whose son is he? They say to him: David's. He saith to them: How then doth David in spirit call him Lord; saying: The Lord said to my Lord, Sit on my right hand, until I make thy enemies thy footstool? If David then call him Lord, how is he his son? And no man was able to answer him a word: neither durst any man from that day forth ask him any more questions.

What is meant by loving god?

It means to find one’s pleasure, happiness and joy in God, because He is he highest and most perfect Good; to rejoice in His infinite majesty and glory; to direct one’s thoughts, words, and actions towards Him as our only end: to do His will in all things, an be prepared always rather to lose everything, even life itself, than His friendship.

What is meant by loving God with our whole heart, our whole soul, etc. ?

These different expressions all properly mean the same thing, namely, that we should cling to God with a true, sincere and heartfelt love, but by our heart our will may be understood, that power by which we wish God all glory, and desire nothing more than that He be known, loved, and honored by all men. The soul signifies the intellect by means of which we should endeavor to arrive at the knowledge and love of God, praise and glorify Him above all things. The mind may signify our memory, with Which we continually remember God and the innumerable benefits bestowed on us by Him, praise Him for them, thank Him, and always walk irreproachably before Him. Finally, we love God with all our strength, if we employ all the powers and faculties of our body in His service, and direct all our actions to Him as to our last end.

Is it true love, if we love God only because He is good to us?

This is grateful love, which is good and praiseworthy, but it is not perfect love, because the motive is self-love and self-interest.

What, therefore, is perfect love?

When we love God only because He is in Himself the highest Good, and most worthy of all love. In this manner we should endeavor to love Him; not through self-interest not through hope of reward, not through fear of punishment, but only because He, as the greatest Good, contains all goodness and, therefore, deserves to be loved only on account of Himself. Such love had St. Francis Xavier, which he very beautifully expressed in the following canticle, composed by himself:


O God, I give my love to Thee,
Not for the heaven Thou'st made for me,
Nor yet because who love not Thee
Will burn in hell eternally.
In dying throes on Calvary,
My Jesus, Thou didst think of me,
Didst bear the lance, the nails, the tree,
Rude scoffs, contempt and infamy,
And pangs untold, all lovingly, -
The scourge, the sweat the agony,
And death itself, -all, all for me,
A sinner and Thy enemy.
Why therefore, should not I love Thee,
O Jesus, dead for love of me?
Not that I may in heaven be,
Not that from hell I may be free;
Not urged by dread of endless pain,
Not lured by prize of endless gain,
But as Thou, Lord, didst first love me,
So do I love and will love Thee.
To Thee, my King, I give my heart,
For this alone that God Thou art.

Can fear exist with love?

Servile fear cannot, but filial fear may. Servile fear is rather a fear of punishment than a fear of offending God. Where such fear exists, love cannot dwell; for in love, writes St. Augustine, (in Joann. Tr. 9.) there is no fear, for perfect love casteth out fear. ( I John IV. 18.) Filial fear, on the contrary, is the fear of offending God. This fear leads to love and is also an effect of love; it is the beginning of wisdom. (Eccles. I. 16.) Let us cherish this fear, for it will drive away sin, as sentinels expel thieves; (Ecclus. I 16.) it will replenish us with joy, and gladness, and obtain for us in our last moments divine blessings and a holy death. (Ecclus.. I. 27.)

How may we obtain a perfect love of God?

By meditating on His infinite, divine perfections, such as His almighty power, His wisdom, His splendor, His beauty, etc.; by contemplating His boundless love for us, in the incarnation, sufferings, and death of His only-begotten Son; by frequently practicing this virtue; by fervent prayer; and by making acts of love, such as are found in good prayer-books.

When should we practice the virtue of love of God?

As soon as we have arrived at the age of reason; when the world, the devil and the flesh, endeavor to withdraw us from God, by their apparent goods and pleasures; when we have separated ourselves from God by mortal sin; when we receive the holy Sacraments, particularly holy Communion; when we receive a particular grace from God; when we use food and drink and other lawful enjoyments; when we contemplate God's creatures; often during the day.; and especially in the hour of death.

[Concerning the love of our neighbor , see the twelfth Sunday after Pentecost].

Why is the commandment to' love God and our neighbor' called the greatest commandment?

Because in it are contained all the other commandments, for Christ says, in it consists the whole law. He who loves God with his whole heart, does not separate himself from God by infidelity, does not practice public or private superstition and idolatry; he does not murmur against God, does not desecrate the name of God by cursing and swearing; he does not profane the Sabbath, because he knows that all this is displeasing to God. On the contrary, he hopes in God, keeps Sundays and days of obligation holy, and observes all the commandments of the Church, because God wishes that we hear the Church; he honors his parents, inflicts no evil upon his neighbor; does not commit adultery, doe's not steal, calumniates no one, does not bear false witness, does not judge rashly, is not envious, malicious or cruel, but rather practices the corporal and spiritual works of mercy; and all this, because he loves God and his neighbor.

What is the meaning of the question What think you of Christ?

Christ asked the Pharisees this question in order to convince them, from their own answer, that He was not only the Son of David, but that He as the only-begotten Son of God was the Lord of David and of all men from eternity. (Fs. II. 7.) , Unhappily, even today there are men who like the Pharisees deny the divinity of Christ, the Son of the living God, consider Him merely a very wise and virtuous man, and do not receive His doctrine, confirmed by so many miracles. Beware, my dear Christian, of these men who rob you of the peace of the soul, and the consoling hope of a future resurrection and eternal life, together with faith in Christ, the divine Redeemer. But if you believe Christ to be the Son of God and our Lord, Law­giver, Instructor, and Redeemer, follow His teaching, and do not contradict indeed what you profess with your lips.

PRAYER O most amiable Jesus! who hast admonished us so affectionately to love God and our neighbor, pour the fire of Thy love into our hearts, that all our deeds and actions, all our thoughts and words may begin and end with Thy love. Grant, that we may love Thee with all the powers of our body and. soul, ,and thereby be so united to Thee, that, like St. Paul, no temptation, no tribulation, no danger, not even death, may be able to separate us from Thee. Grant us also, that we may love our neighbors, friends, and enemies as ourselves for Thy sake, and thus be made worthy to possess Thee as our Redeemer and merciful judge.

Rome and Slaves

 By Anna Von Reitz

One of the crucial bits of knowledge we are seeking to impart is that Rome never died. The Ancient Evil still survives.
The Roman Civil Law has continued to live on, as the Municipal (City) Law and what we call Maritime Law.
In the morass resulting from The American Civil War, two entities both of which practiced Roman Law remained on the field.
Both were Roman forces, one obviously and overtly so, one commanded by a foreign king, but still owned and operated by Rome.
The British Territorial Raj nominally directed by the British Monarch in his role as the Overseer of the Roman Catholic Church's Commonwealth faced off against the Municipal United States Government which was also under the Roman Pontiff's control.
It's best to remember that in Ancient Rome, slaves are how the Romans enriched themselves, above all else.
No Roman Government ever approved of guaranteed freedom for anyone, and it is not a mistake that the Municipal United States Government fought for the South.
Nor is it a mistake that the British Territorial (Commonwealth) Government that fought for the Northern Confederacy also approved of slavery --- so long as it made a profit, because they were under the Roman thumb, too.
The Revenue Act of 1863 was booted up because of the bankruptcy of the Northern Confederacy and its British-led Commonwealth Allies announced by Abraham Lincoln in March of that same year; it happened the day after he, Lincoln, issued the first-ever Executive Order as Commander-in-Chief and established the Lieber Code as instructions for the U.S. Army going forward.
This Revenue Act of 1863 is the origin of the "Bureau of Revenue" which began operations as the Internal Revenue Service shortly after the armed hostilities ended.
The Revenue Act of 1863 was enacted under the assumed "War power authority" of the Territorial Government and made trade in a huge list of goods "Federally Privileged." One had to be licensed to buy and sell such diverse things as playing cards, gunpowder, and feathers, and all these things were subjected to an Excise Tax.
Now, it is plain to see from the Constitutions and other records that no American Government ever considered buying and trading in all these goods to be privileged in any way. According to our treaties and agreements the only Federally regulated goods are alcohol, tobacco and firearms ---- and the word "firearms" does not generally fall under the definition of "arms" which we are guaranteed.
Americans could not be subjected to such a scheme, but the defeated Municipal United States citizenry could be, and they were. This is where it becomes so glaringly evil and self-serving for the then-Territorial Congress to gratuitously "confer" Municipal citizenship on the freed plantation slaves ---- the infamous "Fourteenth Amendment citizenship" ---- so as to enslave them all over again, to corporate masters. Soon the victims were stuck paying taxes and licenses of all kinds to pursue careers of common right, too.
They even had to pay for and prove up for a Marriage License.
All of this is illegal and unlawful, but they got away with it, right here in a free country, by sleight of hand, by pretense, by legal presumption, by false registrations, and undisclosed, misrepresented enrollments and foreign implied and unilateral contracting processes and adhesion contracts that have never been valid on our soil and don't apply under American Common Law or any Constitution.
Freed black plantation slaves, and Chinese railroad workers and "resettled" Native peoples and former Southern Rebels were all lumped together as part of the Municipal Government citizenry, and prosecuted under Roman Civil Law for debts they didn't owe, taxed for privileges that were never privileges, and forced to foot the bill for the war-mongering Territorial Raj.
The usurping Territorial Government sought to disarm these second class citizens from the start, the better to parasitize them; so, the first federal gun control laws were enacted, but they only impacted people of color, Federal Civil Servants, and Southern Rebels. For them, buying a gun was against the law in a country that guaranteed the right to keep and bear arms. . These laws were called "Slave Codes" and the only way this evil encroached upon this country was that other Americans who were not effected by these codes didn't protest and come to their aid.
We saw the same trick in Nazi Germany sixty years later, only this time the marginalized portion of the population happened to be Jewish.
It really doesn't matter who the scapegoats are, it only matters that some people are labeled as second class citizens, and separated from the bulk of the population using some excuse --- skin color, religion, ethnic background, disease, age, or what-have-you --- because then the Old Roman System can crank up and begin selectively enslaving people.
Once that begins it is only a matter of time until they enlarge upon the slave population to include nearly everyone, and settle down to feed, like the parasites they are, on the labor, creativity, assets, and skills of others.
Under the Roman Civil Law (on land) and the Maritime Law (on sea) all this is perfectly legal and has been for thousands of years. And this is how the free peoples of America, Europe, and the Commonwealth have been misidentified and enslaved by these fraud artist parasites and made to kneel to Rome, which is today less than a piss ant in reality.
The "Slave Codes" were gradually expanded to include the rest of the population of America and most European countries by 1940, and nobody was the wiser. If you have any doubts about the slave status of the Municipal United States citizens, read the Buck Act published in 1940 by their Territorial United States brethren.
Thank you, Dustin, yes, an excellent article on the subject of racially motivated gun control can be found here, cited below, but keep in mind that the same kind of oppression was applied to the Jews on the basis of religion, and nearly any such excuse for scapegoating can be applied. It is completely plausible that Democrats would try to impose gun control on Republicans, or on rich people, or on University graduates, or on people who aren't vaccinated.
It's the same Old Evil using the same Old Legal System to promote the same Old Result --- the abuse of a smaller population by a larger population, followed by the gradual enslavement of almost all those partaking in this "System" for a very few Patricians sitting on top of the stinking pile.
We forgot that what impacts one of us, impacts all of us.
So let's all just recognize it for what it is: an Ancient Evil with known results.
As the Chinese began with the people of Tibet, they will end with the people in Beijing. As the U.S. Territorial Government began by enslaving and denigrating people of color and Southerners, they have also gradually enslaved themselves.
And now, all of that must be recognized for the sham and the crime that it is, and the Old Roman System has to be recognized, broken apart, and cast aside forever.
When they try to separate us, we must ever more solidly unite.
When they try to undermine our law and substitute their law for ours, we have to kick them to the curb. And when they tell their lies and start in with their deceits, we have to call them on it, each and every time, until they grow weary and starve for lack of prey.
At all times and in all ways, we must guard ourselves against prejudice and bigotry and blame, hypocrisy, fear, and herd behavior. We must stand with Patrick Henry and Daniel Webster and learn the Credo of Freedom as our Victory Song.
Nobody is free until we are all free.

And then, say it again. And again. And again....

Why This International Peace Proclamation Works

 By Anna Von Reitz

Many people are frankly astounded by the impact that the recent International Peace Proclamation has had already. They are scratching their heads.
Many people, including President Andrew Johnson, have tried all means at their disposal to end the endless "civil war" that has been used as an excuse to pillage and plunder this country and its people for sixteen decades.
If all those officials couldn't do it over all those years, how is it that a simple one-page proclamation could make such a difference?
It's simple really. Nobody else, including President Johnson, had the standing to make it stick.
Johnson, for example, was acting as the Vice-President and later President of a British Territorial United States Company, soon to be restructured as a Crown Corporation. As such, he was CEO of a foreign, for-profit business. While in that office he could stop it from waging more war, but he had no power to resolve the war itself.
The same can be said for many other earnest efforts the loyal men and women in similar positions have tried to make, only to learn the hard way that they don't have the empowerment to end it.
Only the sovereign and independent Union States and their States of the Union operating in international and global jurisdictions, have the power and the standing and the right and the responsibility to declare the end of a war on our shores.
So, okay, the actual States have been summoned into Session and they have held a Roll Call Vote establishing a Peace Treaty ending The American Civil War, also called The War of Secession.
Are the Federal Subcontractors, two giant commercial corporations, obligated to follow suit, and if so, why?
They are obligated in this case because they are our employees and upholding the peace is now a condition of their employment or dependency.
They are further obligated because although they appear to be under separate direction --- the Municipal citizens operating under the direction of Rome, and the Territorial Citizens under the direction of the Crown and the Queen, both are ultimately owned by the Pope --- what appears to be two completely separate things are both sock puppets in his hands.
That being so and being fully exposed, Pope Francis is not able to pretend that there are any two actual sides to the purported conflict. The Americans have gone home to rebuild, and the two foreign commercial subcontracting corporations both belong to him.
If there is any continued fighting, it's because Pope Francis isn't pulling the plug and telling his respective Boards and Officers to give it up. If he doesn't, he would be guilty of war-mongering, and on top of that, we would happily charge him anywhere from between three and eight hundred times the damages, depending on the nature of the continuing offense.
He would also have to pay the entire cost of any continuing war, quite apart from any damage claims.
War is only profitable, when you can promote it without being caught, and profit from it without accruing the moral taint ---- which the Holy See has endeavored to do, successfully, for over a century and a half ---but no more.
Despite people like Ben Fulford screaming for blood in the streets, those of us who have watched the play from beginning to end are not swayed; this entire false conflict was deliberately staged, carried out with deceitful malice, for material gain.
That being so, we already know the best revenge and we are serving it cold.

Anything but peaceable action would play into their hands and allow them to unleash their venom on innocent people all over again, so instead, we are pressing onward like the force of the tide, keeping our heads. and focusing our minds.
