"And I beheld, and heard the voice of one eagle flying through the midst of heaven,
saying with a loud voice: Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth....
[Apocalypse (Revelation) 8:13]

Fr. Campbell- The Gospel to All Nations

The Gospel to All Nations

“With most of them” – those who followed Moses in the Sinai desert – “God was not well pleased” (1Cor.10:5). They murmured against God: “Would that we had meat for food! We remember the fish we used to eat without cost in Egypt, and the cucumbers, the melons, the leeks, the onions, and the garlic” (Num.11:4,5). Their punishment, says St. Paul, was that “they were laid low in the desert” (1Cor.10:5). His advice to us: “Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them tempted, and perished by the serpents. Neither murmur, as some of them murmured, and perished at the hands of the destroyer” (1Cor.10:8-10).

Rebellion against God is the rule today, and men risk perishing “at the hands of the destroyer.” In their arrogance, they have rejected God’s Divine Son, Jesus Christ, and refuse to hear Him speaking through His Church. “He who hears you, hears me,” Jesus told His Apostles. The Church is God’s voice to the world. Those who will not hear the Church do not hear the voice of God. “If he refuse to hear even the Church,” said Jesus about the wrongdoer, “let him be to thee as the heathen and the publican” (Mt.18:17).

Why is it an impossible dream to create conditions of freedom “everywhere in the world”? If the Church is impeded in her divine mission to teach all nations, mankind will not learn the way of truth that leads to freedom. The secular humanists, through their satanically inspired false philosophy, have gained control of all things political, economic, and even religious. Freedom? The peoples of the earth are actually losing their freedom in a New World Order in which true Catholics are persecuted, and truth is perishing from the earth.   

One of the underpinnings of present human society, at least in the Western world, is the Masonic doctrine of “freedom of religion,” which really means “freedom from religion.” The Church of the Novus Ordo (New Order) has accepted their philosophy, and teaches officially the false doctrine of religious freedom, instead of insisting on the rights of the Church. Now all are free to choose falsehood instead of God’s revealed truth, and the Holy Catholic Religion is reduced to the level of the manmade false religions.

Pope Pius IX speaks of “that erroneous opinion, most fatal in its effects on the Catholic Church and the salvation of souls, called by Our Predecessor, Gregory XVI, an ‘insanity,’ viz., that ‘liberty of conscience and worship is each man's personal right, which ought to be legally proclaimed and asserted in every rightly constituted society…’” (Encyclical Quanta Cura, Condemning Current Errors, December 8, 1864, n.3). Insanity!

The Holy Pontiff continues: “And, since where religion has been removed from civil society, and the doctrine and authority of divine revelation repudiated, the genuine notion itself of justice and human right is darkened and lost, and the place of true justice and legitimate right is supplied by material force, thence it appears why it is that some, utterly neglecting and disregarding the surest principles of sound reason, dare to proclaim that ‘the people's will, manifested by what is called public opinion or in some other way, constitutes a supreme law, free from all divine and human control; and that in the political order accomplished facts, from the very circumstance that they are accomplished, have the force of right.’ But who does not see and clearly perceive that human society, when set loose from the bonds of religion and true justice, can have, in truth, no other end than the purpose of obtaining and amassing wealth, and that (society under such circumstances) follows no other law in its actions, except the unchastened desire of ministering to its own pleasure and interests?” (n.4).

Prophetic words! Some pomp and pageantry and a little flag waving may be good for the nation’s morale, but one’s enthusiasm is considerably dampened when one realizes what is going on behind the scenes. Who really runs the country? The Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) has its men planted in virtually all the top government positions. According to Rear Admiral Chester Ward, once a member of the CFR, “The most powerful clique in these elitist groups have one objective in common – they want to bring about the surrender of the sovereignty of the national independence of the United States. A second clique of international members in the CFR comprises the Wall Street international bankers and their key agents. Primarily, they want the world banking monopoly from whatever power ends up in the control of global government.”

And what is the power base of the international bankers? The Federal Reserve Bank, which most assume is owned and controlled by the government of the United States, is really in the hands of the international bankers, who skim the cream off the top of the national product, leaving the watery leftovers to an increasingly impoverished populace. We are becoming a nation of drones, carrying out the plans of the secular humanists who have a global outlook, and care nothing for our national sovereignty. Thomas Jefferson was already saying it: “I believe that banking institutions are more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies.” Baron Mayer Rothschild, founder of the Rothschild banking dynasty, boasted: “Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation and I care not who writes its laws.”

Pope Pius IX, already quoted above, tells us what must be the true foundation of human society: “Teach that ‘kingdoms rest on the foundation of the Catholic Faith; and that nothing is so deadly, so hastening to a fall, so exposed to all danger, (as that which exists) if, believing this alone to be sufficient for us that we receive free will at our birth, we seek nothing further from the Lord; that is, if forgetting our Creator we abjure his power that we may display our freedom.’ And again do not fail to teach ‘that the royal power was given not only for the governance of the world, but most of all for the protection of the Church;’ and that there is nothing which can be of greater advantage and glory to Princes and Kings than if, as another most wise and courageous Predecessor of ours, St. Felix, instructed the Emperor Zeno, they ‘permit the Catholic Church to practice her laws, and allow no one to oppose her liberty’” (n.8).

God spoke through the Prophet Osee: “My people have been silent, because they had no knowledge” (Osee 4:6). But now we DO know, and we must speak the truth. God is revealing to us the plans of the wicked, who will soon perish at the hands of the destroyer, the devil, unless they repent. But Our Lord Jesus Christ reassures us: “Do not be afraid, little flock, for it has pleased your Father to give you the kingdom” (Lk.12:32).
