Pope Francis’ new Mayan Rite of the Mass is a trojan horse of pagan worship.

Pope Francis’ new Mayan Rite of the Mass is a trojan horse of pagan worship — and is on the brink of being unleashed to the entire world. Born from Francis’ Pachamama Synod glorifying pagan practices in the Amazon, Francis is now injecting pagan worship directly into the heart of the Mass — scandalizing billions of Catholics around the world.

15 Archaeological Proofs of Old Testament Accuracy

12. In 2015, the royal bulla (or seal) of the biblical king Hezekiah (r. 715– 687/6 BC) was found in the most ancient part of Jerusalem. It was dated to between 727 and 698 BC. Hezekiah dug the famous tunnel bearing his name (2 Kings 20:20; 2 Chronicles 32:2–4,30; Isaiah 22:11). I was thrilled to be able to walk through it in 2014.

13. The prophet Isaiah lived from c. 740 to c. 681 BC. A bulla with his name on it was found in 2018 in Jerusalem, most excitedly within six and a half feet of the Hezekiah bulla. The two men are associated in the Bible 14 of 29 times that Isaiah’s name occurs.

Guardian Angel Story: As I started walking, I heard this crystal-clear command: “STOP, GO BACK, NOW!”

When I was younger and stronger I worked as a lumberjack, though there and then the term used was “cutter,” in the far away wilderness of northern Maine right next to the Canadian border. It was on an  ordinary day, during an ordinary routine that my “invisible companion” just showed up.

The fact that Christ’s death “paid for” or atoned for our sins does not mean that everything is finished regarding our salvation.

Our Lord himself “did things” for our salvation even after the crucifixion, since the Bible says Christ’s resurrection justifies us. Romans 4:24-25 speaks of “Jesus our Lord, who was put to death for our trespasses and raised for our justification.” St. Paul says, “If Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins.” This shows that our justification, and even the act of remitting our sins, was not finished when Jesus said, “It is finished” on the cross.

In fact, we have to do something in order to be saved because if Christ paid for all of humanity’s sins, then the difference between who is saved and who is damned can be found only in something the believer does, such as receiving grace through baptism and remaining in communion with Christ until death.

If overlayed on top of each other, both St. Veronica’s Veil and the Veil of Manoppello align perfectly with one another and with the Shroud of Turin.

Throughout the history of the Catholic Church, saints, mystics, and scientific studies revealed the possible real face of Jesus Christ.

The Veils of St. Veronica, the Divine Mercy image, and the Shroud of Turin all provide clues as to the true Holy Face of Christ. Many of these images are either considered relics, or are revealed through Church-approved apparitions.

“Death is to men what their fall was to the angels.”

St. Thomas teaches,

[A]s Damascene says (De Fide Orth. ii) “death is to men what their fall was to the angels.” Now after their fall the angels could not be restored [Cf. I:64:2]. Therefore, neither can man after death: and thus the punishment of the damned will have no end. … [So] just as the demons are obstinate in wickedness and therefore have to be punished for ever, so too are the souls of men who die without charity, since “death is to men what their fall was to the angels,” as Damascene says (Summa Theologica, Supplement, q 99, art 3).
