The Audacity of the Changes Introduced into the Church

The Audacity of the Changes Introduced into the Church 

In establishing the Catholic Church, Jesus Christ taught and instructed the Apostles, and these teachings and instructions form the basis of the Catholic Faith and Morals. Being the second Person in the Holy Trinity, Christ is God, and thus any alteration or contradiction of His instructions is a change or a denial of the word of God. For nearly two millennia, the Church endeavored to hold to God’s word; this was the work of her Magisterium.

However, at Vatican Council II, Bishops and periti, imbued with the philosophy of Progressivism, boldly taught an ensemble of new principles at variance with the Catholic Magisterium. They took advantage of the fact that most of the attending Bishops were theologically ill prepared and were not expecting the Council to span a period of four years.

The post-conciliar Popes, also progressivists, de facto imposed on the entire Church many of the progressivist notions. The audacity of the modifications is revealed in the following examples. 

Paul VI introduced the cult of man
in the Conciliar Church (FreeMasonry)

Cult of man

Christ established the Church to both give honor and glory to God and to provide the salvation of souls. This purpose was clearly altered by Pope Paul VI on December 7, 1965, when, in his closing speech to the Council, he proudly admitted to the transformation to a man-centered Church when he proclaimed:

“The religion of God made man has come up against a religion - for there is such a one - of man who makes himself God.” and “…we also, we more than anyone else have the cult of man.”

In his speech, the Pope introduced the label “conciliar Church,” thus emphasizing the Church is now man-centered and he exalted the new state of man in the Church by composing a hymn to the Glory of Man. A typical lyric is:

“Honor to Man, King of the Earth, honor to technique, to labor, to human hardiness, to man, king of the earth and today, prince of heaven.” (1)

New Mass

The Pope further reduced the honor due to God by introducing a new liturgy of the Mass, which is aptly described here: “Similarly, the new liturgy may still pay lip service to the concept of worship to a transcendental God, but in practice it is evolving into a glorification of man.” (2)

These words were written 35 years ago, and today we find that the new liturgy has evolved to enable the celebration of World Youth Day Masses, which publicly dishonor Christ by their rock concert style Mass festivities, their irreverent celebrations and the disrespectful and willy-nilly distribution of the Sacred Hosts at Holy Communion. (3)

Universal salvation

In keeping with the progressivist notion of non-conversion ecumenism, John Paul II held a prayer meeting of several different religious sects at Assisi. He permitted the placing of a statue of Buddha atop the tabernacle in a Catholic church to enable Buddhists to pray to their false god, an obvious infraction of God’s command: “Thou shalt not have strange gods before me.” (Ex 20:3)

In section 35 of his Apostolic Letter Rosarium Virginis Marie, John Paul II proposed replacing the prayer requested by God through His emissary the Blessed Virgin with spontaneous prayer invented at the moment.

He also authorized the publication of the Catechism of the Catholic Church” in which n. 840 declares that Jews, Muslims and members of other religious sects can deny Christ is the Son of God and yet be saved.

Cardinal Ratzinger amplified the declaration by writing in his book God and the World (2000): "The Jews ... are not excluded from salvation”.

Since God said about Christ: “This is my beloved Son in whom I am well pleased” (Mt 3:17) and Christ said about His Father: “No man cometh to the Father but by Me” (Jn 14:6), such “permission” clearly denies the word of both God and His Son. 

Benedict XVI visits the Cologne synagogue in August 2005, one of his many visits to false temples e.g. here, here, here and here
In section 35 of his Post-Synodal exhortation to the Bishops Pastores Gregis, John Paul II contradicted Christ’s words in Mt 12:24: “For many are called, but few are chosen.” Indeed, the Pope wrote:

“In proclaiming the risen Lord, Christians present the One who inaugurates a new era of history and announce to the world the good news of a complete and universal salvation which contains in itself a new world in which pain and injustice will give way to joy and beauty.”

The “new doctrine” of universal salvation was also proclaimed by the French Bishops, who as a body, pronounced against the doctrine of Hell. (4).

In direct contradiction to the command of Christ: “Going therefore, teach all nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost. Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you” (Mt 28:19), both Benedict XVI and Francis denied the necessity of conversion to the Catholic Faith.

At a meeting in Cologne on August 19, 2005, Benedict XVI, when speaking of the “new” non-conversion ecumenism, declared:

“On the other hand, this unity does not mean what could be called ecumenism of return, that is, to deny and to reject one’s own faith history. Absolutely not !”

And in a recent interview, Pope Francis said: “Convert you? Proselytism is solemn nonsense. You have to meet people and listen to them.”

Complacency with homosexuality

Since the end of the Council, perhaps the most damaging de facto moral change is the permissive attitude toward the sins of sodomy and pedophilia, sins so dangerous to the eternal welfare of souls that they cry out to Heaven for vengeance. Each of the post-conciliar Popes have either ignored or implicitly condoned these sins by refusing to take serious and effective steps to halt their worldwide spread among members of both the clergy and the hierarchy.

Catholic high school students in Seattle quote Francis at a 'gay rights' rally. The young people in the Novus Ordo are quite sad to talk to completely clueless on Catholic doctrine.

Pope Francis has publicly admitted the existence of a "gay lobby", also called the "gay mafia," in the Vatican itself. However, more than a year after declaring: “We will see what we can do.” the lobby remains at full strength and Vatican officials themselves have been charged as accomplices to the committing of the sins. (5)

The spread of public acceptance of these mortal sins began in earnest after Vatican Council II and is being greatly aided by the almost total refusal of the Hierarchy to vigorously speak out and take effective action against these sins.

These sins not only contradict Christ’s purpose for His Church, but also ignore Christ’s words: “He that shall scandalize one of these little ones ... it were better for him that a millstone should be hanged about his neck and that he should be drowned in the depth of the sea.” (Mt 18:6).

In summary, there is a clear need to rid the Church of progressivist notions to return it to the purpose for which Christ established it. This is affirmed in the adage: “To not oppose error is to condone it,” and in St. John Chrysostom’s words: “The person who does not become irate when he has cause to be, sins. For an unreasonable patience is the hotbed of many vices: it fosters negligence, and stimulates not only the wicked, but above all the good, to do wrong.” (6)

A Fundamental Inversion in
the Goals of the Church

Robert P. Banaugh, Ph.D. 

On December 7, 1965, in his closing speech at Vatican Council II, Pope Paul VI announced: “The Church had decided to serve man, to help man build a home here on this earth.”

According to Paul VI, the present day authorities of the Catholic Church would no longer be assisting the faithful to fulfill the supernatural purpose for which they were created, which is “to know, love and serve God, and to be forever with Him in Heaven.” Thus, the main goals of the Church, established by Christ for the purpose of giving honor and glory to God and the salvation of souls, were inverted. Not the salvation of souls, but the improvement of human welfare became a major goal for the conciliar Church.  

Paul VI sets a new mission: The church must serve man

Since the Pope was well aware of the words of Jesus - “Seek ye therefore the kingdom of God and His justice and all these things shall be added unto you” (Mt 6:33) - this change in purpose was indeed a most radical change.

In the same speech the Pope also said:

“The conciliar Church, it is true, has also been much concerned with man, with man as he really is today, with living man, with man totally taken up with himself, with man who not only makes himself the center of his own interests, but who dares to claim that he is the end and aim of all existence.

“Secular, profane, humanism has finally revealed itself in its terrible shape and has, in a certain sense, challenged the Council. The religion of God made man has come up against a religion – for there is such a one – of man who makes himself God.”

“And what happened? An impact, a battle, an anathema? That might have taken place, but it did not. It was the old story of the Samaritan that formed the model for the Council's spirituality. It was permeated only with endless boundless sympathy. The attention of our Council was taken up with the discovery of human needs - which become greater as the son of the earth makes himself greater. …

“Do you at least recognize this merit, you modern humanists who have no place for the transcendence of the things supreme, and come to know our new humanism: we also, we more than anyone else, have the cult of man.” (Ibid.)

Four years later on July 13, 1969, Paul VI again emphasized this new elevation of man by declaring:

“Man is both giant and divine, in his origin and his destiny. Honor, therefore, to man, honor to his dignity, to his spirit, to his life."

Thus, according to the Pope, not only would the purpose of the Church be radically changed, but so also would the relation between God and man. The fulfilling of both the new purpose of the Church and the new “status” of man is based upon such intangible notions as dialogue, unity in diversity, building a worldwide community of love through dialogue, attaining a unity in diversity among all peoples of the world, establishing a one world man-defined ‘religion’, etc.

The new objective is clearly unattainable as it contradicts Jesus’ words quoted above as well as God’s words in Jeremiah: 'Cursed be the man that trusts in man and makes flesh his arm and whose heart departed from the Lord' (17.5).

The Council inspired changes in the basic tenets of the faith and its liturgical rites as they were understood prior to the Council. The changes emphasized such actions as the collaboration with authorities of different religious sects, as well as with secular authorities for the improvement of human welfare, the attainment of world peace, etc. To attain the new objectives, Christ’s teachings were blithely ignored, as well as His purpose for His Church. 

Francis sent a letter to Prime Minister Cameron: 'The goal of economics and politics is to serve humanity

For many centuries prior to Vatican II, the Church was devoted to helping the faithful fulfill Christ’s admonition in Matthew 6:33. As a consequence, the Church enjoyed a steady period of growth in the numbers of its members, its clergy and its religious institutions. Throughout the world both her moral authority and her social influence was respected.

In addition, the charitable work of the Church was greatly admired due to the large number of schools and hospitals she had built, supported and operated and made available to many of the poor.

However, soon after the close of Vatican II tens of thousands of religious and clergy abandoned the Church. Their abandonment led to the curtailing of many religious services, the closing of hundreds of Catholic schools and the severe limiting of the ability of Catholic hospitals and charitable organizations to provide medical and charitable services to the poor.

Furthermore, the Catholic Faith was abandoned by hundreds of thousands of Catholics. This devastation of the Church began almost immediately after the close of the Council. It quickly became so evident that, just three years after its close, Paul VI felt forced to declare: “The Church is in the process of auto-demolition.”

The sudden and sharp loss in the religious and moral influence of the Church has been so noticeable that it has raised much discussion among both Catholics and non-Catholics. Sadly, this self-destruction continues unabated due to of the novel teachings and actions by conciliar Church authorities.
