Here is the book referenced in Class 10 :

http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/8442

I can't recommend it highly enough. Hilaire Belloc really ought to be compulsory reading in all schools, Catholic and non-Catholic alike. He's not perfect. But he's a real historian. And he has the Faith. Here's a sample:

"When you have full evidence, even of a thing extraordinary, you must admit its truth. ... If, for instance, I learn, as I can learn from contemporary records and from the witness of men still living, that at the battle of Gettysburg infantry advanced so boldly as to bayonet gunners at their guns, I must believe it although the event is astonishing.
If I learn, as I can learn, that a highly civilized and informed government like that of the French in 1870, entering into a war against a great rival, had only the old muzzle-loading cannon when their enemies were already equipped with modern breech-loading pieces, I must accept it on overwhelming evidence, in spite of my astonishment.

When even the miraculous appears in a record—if its human evidence is multiple, converging and exact—I must accept it or deny the value of human evidence."

Unfortunately, the recently updated version of Conference 1 with Fr. Pfeiffer does not work either.

Does anyone know if a original copy can be uploaded?

Thank you Cleopas for pointing it out. I hadn't realized there was an fixed audio version.
I replaced it and now one posted in its place seems to be working.

DV the "one posted in its place" only works until 0.15 and then shuts down.

Can Pablo and Big Rhino Production help us out with this dilemma?

Maybe you have an old link. I played this one for 16 min. with no interruptions.
Do give it another try.

Transcription of Class 1
The basic theme of the Conference is Pascendi, Modernism and its effect on our times.
Every two years we cover with the seminarians the 'Pascendi' - the encyclical of Pope St. Pius X 1907 on Modernism. This encyclical on Modernism is actually of the old servilian inspired. We know that that St. Pius X's understanding of the modernist mind is the understanding of all modern civilisation; the understanding of our modern world. It's all here. What is interesting about this 1907 encyclical and about the heresies of l907 not one was already old in l907. They had already been around in a big way in the Catholic Church for at least 60 years - nearly 100 years. In 1822 Pope Gregory XVI was one of the popes who, himself, may have been a masonic infiltrator in the Church and he wrote Mirari Vos's, an absolutely magnificent encyclical. He was one of the first Popes who in 1820 where we see modernism begin to take its effect in the Catholic Church. It is almost 100 years old in seminaries and in the thinking of Catholic men by the time that St. Pius X condemned it in 1907. Now it is 2017 so we are 200 years after the real onset of modernism in Catholic seminaries, Catholic theology and St. Pius X attacked it very heavily. The Pope of the l9th century condemned it, Mirari Vos - in fact some of the errors of modernism were already condemned by Gregory XVI. Those first infiltrators in the Church they laid the foundations for the future destruction of the Church. The essential summary of what modernism is - all that it is - is evolution. The difference between modernism and evolution is the spelling. That's it! Modernism equals evolution, evolution equals modernism.

St. Pius X points out two essential elements of modernism. In fact it is one, one thing, evolution and vital immanence. Vital Immanence is well described by St. Pius X. Vital Immanence is the engine of evolution. Charles Darwin and the modern heretics teach that evolution is a reality but they don't explain it It's just the way things are. The one who gives the best explanation in one source was the teaching of many hundreds of different heretics pulled together in one unified heresy - and the one who understood it perfectly and condemned it is St. Pius X. So the key to modernism is evolution. Evolution is THE principle of our times.

How does evolution work?
Understanding vital immanence which is of course just part of evolution and understanding what evolution is philosophically and` theologically is exceedingly essential. When we think of evolution, one of the deceptions, one of the interesting deceptions about evolution - when we think of it we think of Charles Darwin, we think of a bunch of monkeys and we think of a stupid monkey evolved into a stupid guy and then it became you. That is how we think of evolution. We think of nothing - exploding a big bang and over time things happening. Any rational man who looks at that is going to think that is idiotic. But we believe that that's evolution. The material process by which things just happen. And what just happens is that nothing was there, it exploded in a magnificent explosion - a big bang - we don't realise there's theology behind it. This theology in fact is found in - we go won't go too much into Galileo and Bruno.

Giordano Bruno was put to death in the year 1600 for the heresy of believing that the earth was not the centre of the universe and that the sun spun around it, but he had an entire philosophy and theology which came from the Renaissance. Neo Paganism and the things that he taught are now taught, more or less, everywhere. So remember that that no error ever suddenly comes into a culture. It takes time. Whenever you decide to do something like, for instance - get up in the morning - it takes time for you to actually do it. Most people, except weird people wake up and get out of bed. Other people push the snooze button and the snooze button and the snooze button. Some people actually know they have to get up at 7am. so they set the alarm for 5am. Then they start putting the snooze button on for two hours to actually get up at 7am. not realising they would sleep better if they just got up at seven. This is all part of human nature. We cannot go suddenly and quickly into things. St. Thomas explains the simple reason why. He says it is because we have a body. To use an example for instance - here is an angel - now he's going up. What does he have to do in order to change and go down? The angel was aiming at God at the very beginning of time. They were given one test, and in that test they switched from up to straight down. In an angel there is no movement. There is a movement from up to down. But because they don't have a body they do not have to go through this process. - the process of turning around. The angel is aiming up and then bang, he is aiming down.

So you ask the question - in heaven if a saint is racing with an angel who wins? The angel still wins. Why? Because if a saint is on the moon and he wants to go to the earth - he decides to go to the earth and he gets there about as quick as Scotty just like in star trek he gets beamed up and he gets beamed down. But there is a process by which you are on the moon and your body has to move at light speed to the earth. Angels don't do that. Angels are on the moon and then, they're on the earth.

They don't travel between the two places. They simply are on the moon then they are on the earth.

Human beings have to go through the turn. Fr. Libietis gave a summary of this in the history of the SSPX. He did a good job and of the Society's turn of aiming towards God to aiming towards modernist Rome. And the turn didn't happen suddenly with Archbishop Lefebvre aiming towards God and condemning the modernists but then slowly, slowly, slowly went through the process of turning and we could say here, as an example of 2006 we were at mid turn. In 2012 we finished the turn.

In 1998 we were aiming straight up that way. 2012 we were aiming that way - (down Fr. showing on board). And the process took time. In 2006 the example Fr. Libietis gives is Look at the general statement of the Chapter of 2006. It makes a very essential shift from 88 and 74. What it says is we cannot have an agreement with modernist Rome - a practical agreement - until we have a dogmatic agreement. We think that means the same thing.` No, it doesn't. in 1974 what did Archbishop Lefebvre say? We cannot go back, we must continue to disobey modernist Rome until the light of faith shines over Rome again. See the difference? Both are about doctrine! Light of faith shines in Rome - no problem. Light of faith does not show in Rome - problem.

What about 2006? If we doctrinally agree no problem. If we disagree problem. Why is that wrong?

Because we can both agree that we want to bomb Moscow; we both agree that we want to join a sheikdom; we can both agree that we want to become Muslim; we could both agree that we want to be Catholic; we both agree that we want to love God; we both agree that we want to hate God. We can agree on anything; there's no objective necessity to agree to that which is true, or that which is good. But people ASSUME that it means the older version when in fact it means the new. Now this has been happening for the last 200 years in the Catholic Church. In the first stage we all believed what the church has always taught.1800, 1600. Later on, we still believe in what the Church has taught but we start to change the language and we start to say, yes we believe it but in modern terms. We believe it with modern thinking. We don't ever want to become eceumenical we don't ever want to abandon the faith. We believe it in modern terms and modern thinking and that is when the church becomes totally modernist. There is a turn. St. Pius X points out the process and the key to that turn.

What made it happen? is the heresy of modernism. First thing he says in the encyclical (side-talk where document is not immediately accessible) so in the very beginning, one thing we know about St. Pius X and the Popes before is the name of the encyclical Pascendi Dominic Gregis - the feeding of the flock of Christ. He realises that we are now in such a great crisis that we're back to the bare essentials. St. Peter recognised Christ three times; St. Peter accepted Christ again after He rose from the dead, and our Lord asked Peter Simon, son of John, lovest thou me? Yea Lord you know that I love you. Feed my lambs, feed my lambs. This is the first duty of the Pope - to feed the lambs. Feed my lambs, feed my lambs, feed my sheep and St. Pius X is noting here by calling from the beginning of the encyclical with Feed the Flock of Christ. Feed the flock of the Lord.

So it says in the first paragraph that:

The office divinely committed to Us of feeding the Lord's flock has especially this duty assigned to it by Christ, namely, to guard with the greatest vigilance the deposit of the faith delivered to the saints, rejecting the profane novelties of words and oppositions of knowledge falsely so called.

And here we deal with the greatest of them all. One of the challenges we have by the way in trying to cover Pascendi - normally when we cover Pascendi with the seminarians it usually takes five weeks. Five or six weeks to go through this encyclical, and to go through the teaching and the meaning/understanding what modernism is and how it works because we see it everywhere in the world today. We cover the encyclical in the seminary every two years and the seminarians cover it at least three times before they get ordained. The reason for that is that when we understand this system we understand how the modern world creates heresies. Modernism is not just a heresy like St. Pius X says it is not just a heresy - it is a heresy-producing factory. It's a system. It's a system of producing heresies. This system has been in place actually for 6000 years. Modernism is the closest thing we can get to the understanding of Satan's mind. This is the death of the satanic way of thinking; the death of operating. And it takes a long time to get this satanic mode into an entire culture. In 2017 it is throughout the entire culture and so we have to answer it by understanding the essence of this heresy. And we have to answer it by giving the response to the heresy which is a complete Catholic vision. The whole Catholic vision - this is the only response. There is no other one.

St. Pius X recognizes something about our Catholic Church we do not just teach doctrines
This is one of the first attacks of the early modernists in the last 400 years. We're so busy fighting against the Protestants. The Protestants were very intelligent; they would argue the various - trying to take a section of scripture and twist it - take scripture and twist it - take scripture and twist it and they would argue and argue and argue and use Sacred Scripture to twist the teachings of Christ. So Catholic apologists would become very intellectual in their fighting against the Protestants. And a kind of intellectualism entered into the Catholic Church. The end result of it was that there was already a problem at the end of the middle ages that the Catholic theologians were becoming so intellectual that they were losing sight of the supernatural life - the spiritual life, and there was a reaction. The reaction was we don't care about your dogmas you talk about your dogmas you're a dogmatic councils we have to live a moral life. We must live a moral life, we don't need to worry about dogmas. Live a moral life. And then after a while they noticed that the Protestants are moral - many of them. Catholics are immoral - many of them. Some Catholics are more immoral than Protestants. Good Catholics are moral. Good Protestants are moral so then why arn't we together. It is called 'diabolize'. I can't write Greek - the devil - two words - means to 'tear apart'. This is the first step of modernism - to tear apart.

The devil.
First separate morality and dogma, then corrupt dogma, then re-unite. And the morals become corrupted. Tear apart>rebuild a new culture. And they are going to do that at every single phase of the game. We are now in 1907 extreme crisis mode. Catholics are dying and losing the faith all over the world. Those who call themselves Catholics don't really believe the teachings of the church. Remember 1907 everyone goes to the latin Mass. Every lady wears dresses below the knees. It wasn't the twenties yet. Every family has children - officially. In France Catholics have tried birth control for the last 300 years. Birth control was being discredited amongst Catholics already throughout the world. St. Pius X said in 1907 we are in the most grave crisis - the sheep are dying of starvation. The sheep are becoming immoral. The world is in the worst state it than it has ever been since creation. And he was right. It just got worse. Therefore we are in the most grave, urgent situation we must feed the flock of Christ.

We must DEFEND the flock of Christ against this most egregious error and heresy of modernism. So the encyclical is a long one. Bishop Williamson's summary (see below) does and excellent job of giving summaries, and he has one line for every paragraph. And then he has the breakdown of the overall subject. Obviously every detail cannot be in a summary like this, but the essentials are there. He covers a lot of what the modernist is. The point of St. Pius X shows that the monster has many heads but he is only one. In the very beginning St. Pius X says modernists claim they act confused. They act confused, but they are NOT confused. The act disjointed, they are NOT disjointed. These are the hallmarks of Satan. And later on they will say that it is the collectio - the collection - the synthesis - the grand sewer of all heresies. We must understand it as one heresy that pulls together all the other heresies into one united front. Remember what Our Lord Jesus Christ said, the kingdom of hell is not divided against itself. When you look at all the false religions - there are many false religions. Thousands of them. And many of them hate each other. So it appears as though they are divided against themselves. They are not. There are devils assigned to the Hindus, devils assigned to the various levels of Protestants, conservative Protestants, liberal Protestants and all the varieties of Protestants. Devils of course are assigned to atheists. Devils assigned to all false religions. And they fight amongst each other. Just like thieves they are all thieves but it doesn't mean that they are going to work together. They can kill each other. But what is their unity. Unity is they're all thieves. Unity is they all belong to the kingdom of Satan. But there is also a deeper unity in that there is a unity of ideas amongst the leaders. In the church of Satan they are trying to bring down the whole of western culture and western civilisation and trying to end Christianity. There is a unity amongst the leaders and in their ideology to reach crisis mode by 1907. Now one hundred years later we will discover the same errors and heresies of that time - only they are more fresh.

The Modernist Universe
Four elements. According to tradition there are four elements of the universe. Fire, water, earth and sky. And it tells us in Sacred Scripture - it is interesting when you understand about paganism and what the Jesuits discovered in the 1600's in their studies of pagan religions - that every pagan religion is a corruption of the true religion. Every one! So according to tradition all the elements of the universe can have properties of either fire, water, earth or the air. All the different elements can be broken down to these types of elements. They have certain characteristics. Fire and air for instance are elements which tend to rise. Earth and water are elements that tend to fall. So, with fire for instance, heat rises; cold falls but in any case these are the four elements.

These four elements are the foundation of the formal Church's colours which originally is red for fire of course; white for earth because of the linen because linen gets dirty and you have to clean it all the time. Earth always has to be cleaned. So white is the earth and the blue, which became green somehow, which is sky and water - the blue became green which is water which is life and that's simple. Then the sky gets the purple. So these are the four colours. And then they were found in the Old Testament in the Temple and in the New Testament they are the colours we wear for Mass as St. Thomas describes them. Then there came Greek philosophers who corrupted the original revelation and said the earth is composed of one of these four material elements. All heresies are a corruption of the truth. Remember Adam was the first philosopher; Adam was the first theologian; Adam was the first Pope, and Adam was the first king. And there were not four Adams. There was only one. Adam was the first Pope and he was the first philosopher, the first theologian and the first king. And the new Adam - guess what he is? He's Pope - he was head of the Pope - the new Adam was Christ. He is head of the whole human race; he is a theologian; he is a philosopher and he is a king - of all humanity. The new Adam describes the old Adam also. So all of these heresies are corruptions. We say traditionally the world is made up of four elements.

There are four elements of the universe of the modernists. There are inside elements and outside elements. The inside elements inside a man are the conscious and the unconscious. The outside elements are called visible phenomena - ONLY as visible. It is important to know. You see, a dog for instance is visible. But dog has never been seen. You see the brown hair, four legs, eyeballs, barking, road kill. You do not see dog. Dog is there before the semi runs him over. Dog is not there after he has been squashed by the semi. Dog has been squashed out - it's gone. Dog was there dog is gone. We see this in all things. So, the dog is an invisible thing. The visible elements are the colour, the hair and so on and the dog is invisible. And all things visible are visable that way. Modernists, however, tell us the visible ONLY as visible is real. So if we put these things across - these two things they call the real world. Conscious and the visible phenomena. Then there is this thing called beyond phenomena. There are some modernist principles that St. Piux X lays out and the one thing he says about all modernist principles: None of them have a foundation; none of them have proof and none of them can be questioned.

So, no foundation, no proof, cannot be questioned = undeniable infallible fact. These are the principles. So St. Pius X has worked it out that these people are insane. They are evil but they are also insane. Now we see here - so these are the four - subconscious, conscious, visible phenomena and beyond phenomena. The whole universe is made up between these things. Now we even know that in the world of the sub conscious this is called beyond the real. We do not want to say UNreal - that's almost a clear statement - we will avoid that. Beyond the real. There's a real world of the conscious and the visible phenomena. Then there is beyond the real world - go inside of a man's heart you've got the SUBconscious which no one can understand. And beyond the real on the outside beyond phenomena which no-one can understand - now all that which is beyond the phenomena and subconscious is beyond the understanding of man. No man can understand these things.

Why not?
Because they cannot be understood. That's it! They cannot be understood period. It is just a dogma.

What we have to realise is that these are the four elements subconscious, conscious, visible phenomena and beyond the phenomena. The real world is the one of the consciousness and the one with the visible phenomena. This is the world of real decisions and the world - this world is ruled by the philosopher. St. Pius X points out the modernists have seven heads. He names them there.

You will see in Bishop Williamson's summary. (See below) They are numbers 1, 2 and 3 - philosopher, believer and theologian on Part 2. You will see at the bottom 4, 5, 6 and 7 - historian, critic and apologist and reformer. Then you come back to the first page 4, 5, 6 and 7 small sections. 4 is historian, 5 is critic, 6 is apologist, 7 is reformer. 1, 2 and 3 is here at the top - the philosopher, believer and theologian and that's the seat the heart of latter Part 2 which is on the page. So the way this summary works - the very beginning, then the heart of the matter p.2 then back to page 1 for the continuation of the encyclical. 29:21 and that's the summary of the entire encyclical.

So the four elements : beyond the phenomena and subconscious - these two which are far from each other because between them are the visible and the conscious - these are not real and so they are beyond reality and therefore they are not the place of philosophers; they are not the place of historians; they are not the place of critics; they are not the place of apologists. They are the place of religion and the place of theologians, and the place of spirituality. So what you see here is the foundation of all modern beliefs about religion. No man can prove anything about religion. It's a religious thing. The religious thing cannot be proven because religion is in the subconscious which is beyond reality - cannot be understood. And religion goes way outside of reality to the other side beyond the phenomena and that's also not real. So religion is the place of beyond the phenomena, it's a place of the subconscious.

The philosopher, the historian, the psychologist, psychiatrist - these men deal in the realm of the conscious and the visible. The priest, monk, theologian - the spiritual person deals in the realm of the subconscious and beyond the phenomena.

Then, when we begin our evolution history we draw the same chart. The outside is the same size (draws big circle) and this is beyond the phenomena (Fr. points). and this is the visible ...(draws tiny circle in centre of big circle) and this is the conscious and subconscious (second small circle beside visible circle). There are the same elements . To put it in perspective - in the very beginning of evolution the beyond the phenomena is huge. The visible is relatively small and the conscious is really small. The subconscious is quite large. Beyond the phenomena is quite large. What happens over time? What happens over time is evolution. So, over time the visible world expands and the subconscious world shrinks. That is the key to understanding. It is a very important key to understanding how modernism works. So - the subconscious - this is the world of spirituality. Beyond the phenomena the world of spirituality.

Go back 2,000 years the spiritual world was really big. But as man evolves and learns more the spiritual world gets smaller. Smaller on the outside, smaller on the inside. The only one who understands the spiritual world is the priest so, in olden times, priests and medicine men and anyone who could dance around a fire and say uuurrr! they had a lot of power. And remember about modernism. It is very important to understand modernists don't hate anyone. They equally despise everyone. They don't hate anyone. They equally despise everyone. That's why one modernist can have a personal hatred for religious people, another can have a great love for religious people in the same way you might hate dogs or you might like dogs. You hate dogs you hate dogs! If you like dogs you like dogs! But in any case they are still dogs. They never become people. They never change their nature. So in the modernist world, for instance, they have a great respect for religion; a great love for religion; and a great appreciation of religion because it deals with the world beyond the phenomena and it deals with the subconscious world. They have a great love and respect for it. But the thing is that they are just lower beings. They can personally love and personally respect some other modernist but they don't understand. Note that this world is always changing. Here is why St. Pius X said, noting this aspect of modernism, the fact that it is always apparently changing. It is not changing at all. (Inertia). A car is going a hundred miles an hour down the road. It's passing Boston Kentucky. It's in Boston yes, for about twenty seconds. Well now its in (another) town. It's changed. Now its in Lexington, now it's going over the Appalacian mountains no it's the same car going a hundred miles an hour. At one point it's in Boston, another point it is in (another) town, another point it is in Lexington another point in the Appalachian mountains till it hits the ocean. So, it's the same car. St. Pius X points out - to note concerning modernism - this process of the ever expanding world of the so-called real - their world - ever shrinking the world outside of them makes modernists the enemy, not only of the Catholic religion, but of all religion because that is the conclusion of what it all is. The conclusion of it all is there is only going to be a world of two elements. Hillary and Obama!

There will only be two elements. There is going to be the conscious element ruled by psychiatrists and psychologists and there is going to be the visible phenomena. GOD exists in the beyond the phenomena and God is believed on the inside. Therefore St. Pius X says the end of modernism is always going to be atheism. In fact that is not going to be the final conclusion. The final conclusion is going to be the worship of Satan. But before we get to that there is going to be evolution. God who was once powerful is going to shrink and shrink and shrink until its all over. It is the same principle as Muslims when they move into a country. First they are nice citizens when only one percent of the population and then they are tolerable citizens when they occupy ten percent of the population. And then they are warring citizens when they are twenty-five percent of the population. Then they take over the entire place and kill off everybody else. When they have finished with everyone else then they kill each other. So the Muslims never stop. Jews never stop. Modernists never stop. Anything contrary to them means necessary death.

Transcription Class 2

Remember that at the conclusion of modernism there is only going to be two elements visible and conscious. Religion is going to be completely gone. St. Pius X points out that there are stages of this modernist world. (Pointing to the board)


upload_2017-7-30_15-26-10.png




(Fr. continues)..this is how the whole process works. Pointing to the three diagrams ...This is a summary of the whole process (of modernism). How the process works will be here in this lower chart - Beyond the Phenomena is big gets smaller. The visible gets bigger. Remember about the visible world and the conscious we must understand that this world is not in the world of free will. It is not a world of freedom. It's a very cold and hard communistic world. You will notice that communism is essentially the same. One thing that's becoming very noticeable in the world in general. You'll notice it happening in music, in culture in general. The difference is between peoples; the difference is between religions; the differences between music - in this part of the world, in country areas as in the eighties - whatever - you don't listen to country music, you listen to rock-n-roll. If you listen to rock-n-roll you don't listen to country. Now you can't tell the difference between any of them. Everybody listens across the board. Everything is becoming the same all across the board. There is a unification happening. This unification is not by accident. It is a preparation for the coming of the antichrist. If you put the forces BEHIND modernism into the picture they are satanists and they are preparing the world for the coming of the antichrist. In order for the world to be ready for the antichrist the people have to be ready. St. Basil points this out in one of his sermons on the crucifixion of Christ. He says, look at the year 3AD. Annas, Caiaphas, Herod, Pilate. All of them were just as evil in the year 30 as they were in the year 33. All of them were ready to crucify Christ right away in the year 30 just as they were in the year 33. We don't notice any change in Annas, Caiaphas, Herod or Pilate. In other words, the great leaders genuinely tend to be evil, and if they are not evil they easily succumb to evil - just pay them enough money or give them enough pleasures.

But why is it that it took three and a half years to crucify Christ?

As St. Basil points out, the reason he says is - the crowd. The crowd has to be transformed into a mob. And crowd and mob are about the same thing. There was a process of changing the crowd into a mob. That's what had to happen. When the crowd was ready to turn into a mob THEN they crucified Christ. So, likewise, in the preparation for the antichrist who will be the most wicked leader of all time, the crowd of men had to be transformed into a mob. They had to be ready so that when the man of evil comes they will stand up and follow him. They will stand up and adore him; they will blindly obey him; they will follow him. That's what they're going to do when the antichrist comes. The forces that created this heresy of modernism,which essentially is really the closest we can get to the satanic mind - slowly being pushed into everyone's hands. We notice that the modernist thinking, the modernist spirit, the modernist mentality, the modernist ideology is now almost in every person. Now that it is almost in every person the world is ready for the antichrist to come. He was well on the way to being almost in every person in 1907. He is almost in every person in 2017. We have to note that it is the same heresy that is heading in this direction. The direction being the only world is going to be a cold, visible, material world ruled by a bunch of Mr. Spocks.

You will notice in the 1950's movies about science fiction and notice in the forties and fifties and so on all the time when you saw aliens,or when you see disease and massive death and destruction - it was always the scientist. The scientist says well I don't believe in morality; of killing or not killing - it's just the reality, it's just what happens - all this goes through a guy's head - falls apart - this is what happens in culture and I can only tell you the scientific thing. I can only tell you the material thing. I can only tell you what science has to say. And at the end of the world there's going to be only scientists and these scientists are going to rule every aspect of society. Remember that whenever there was a crime there's always a criminal. Somebody is benefitting from the crime. Who is the criminal that is benefitting from modernism? Who is the criminal that's getting more and more powerful, more and more wealthy? It is the scientist. The scientist is the modern doctor. These are the ones - they are governing and ruling the world and then of course the journalists. Journalists are like the historian. You will find that all they are is the seven heads showing themselves.

The goal is to destroy all religion; destroy all free will; destroy freedom of any kind including natural freedoms. Like for instance - remember hearing it on Alex Jones radio about three or four years ago - even longer than that - it was a radio thing. And a guy is there that sees the future. There was a guy who called up Ralph's Hamburgers. He calls up the phone and says, hello Hi Ted Johnson, how are you? I a calling to order a double cheeseburger . Well with your heart condition you really shouldn't be having that. And your doctor said because of your diabetes you really shouldn't have that. But we will give you the hamburger so long as you sign off this little form and pay $275 for the burger. We have this nice salad which is approved by the doctor for you. You want to go to the bar with your girlfriend? Or do you want to come over and get it? So the guy calls up the fast food place. Fast food place knows his medical history; fast food place knows what he's allowed to eat; what he's not allowed to eat. Fast food place has approved foods for him and he has no choice but to get the 25c salad or the $275 hamburger if he wants it.

So you can see the world is heading into the situation where it's going to become illegal to be fat; it's going to be illegal to be unhealthy; it is going to become illegal to say any word that is not considered appropriate - so called political correctness and the penalty will be torture, prison death. People generally are looking forward to that kind of a world. A recent survey, the average person did not want to be a total slave in every aspect of his life ending in torture and pain. So how do you prepare for that world? You prepare for it by lies. You prepare for it by deception. Here are the seven deceptions. But there are many other ones. Modernism is such a huge heresy. One of the great miracles of St. Pius X is to summarise such a mass of heresies in this little document. He says, you MUST understand it because the modernist wants you to believe that he is divided. Remember this is what we're after. In modernism we're going into a world in which there is no God; no free will. Everything is going to be controlled by the government on the outside by the psychiatrist, by the psychologist and by the social worker on the inside. Social workers, psychiatrists, psychologists will control your home. And the doctor will control your food. The scientist and the government will control every movement of your life and everyone has a total of one option, except of course the king and the modernist himself. He has other options. But everyone else has only one. That's the goal. If you want to destroy people in a culture like that- the only way to do it is through deception. St. Pius X wants to point out that deception and then he wants to take practical steps which he did do to wage war against it. It was a great miracle that he did so. The world was ready for Vatican II in 1907 or l903 when he was elected Pope. There already was masonic cardinals, there was already great wickedness throughout the entire world - the world was ready for the New World Order. One Italian peasant stood up and changed it all. We'll see in history St. Pius X was one of the greatest church men and greatest saint that ever lived in his ability to take practical steps to obliterate. First of all we've got to understand. There is one way to draw it10:45 He said imagine that you've got a trench and we're going to have i, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 7 holes. Seven different guys are shooting at you.

St. Pius X points out you've got to kill these seven guys.

We don't realise there is a trench underneath these seven guys and you're only shooting at one guy. When this guy (No. 1)is shooting at you - you shoot him, and he actually drops down and pops up in the other hole; he drops down and pops up in the next hole. drops down and pops up in the next hole. It's like cutting the grass. Try getting rid of the weeds by cutting the grass. But they keep always coming back. It's not going to work. You have to kill the roots; you've got to destroy the tunnel system. This is one organised modernist system. He's got seven heads. There is a structure of order in these heads:

First one is Philosopher
Second one is Believer
Third one is Theologian
Fourth one is the Historian
Fifth one is the Critic
Sixth one is the Apologist
Seventh one is the Reformer​

Now remember. It is one guy. If you understand Philosopher you understand the other six. If you understand Reformer you understand the other six. But the most important of them is 'Philosopher. One guy, one trench system which makes it look like seven different guys. They do not want you to know they are connected. He wants you to believe these are - you may have heard this term before - independent pockets of resistance. That's what they want you to believe. One of the signs. You want to have an independent pocket. We're all independent. We are not connected. One, two, three, four, five, six, seven. Independent pockets of resistance. So, these are the guys: Philosopher, Believer, Theologian, Historian, Critic, Apologist, Reformer. If I understand the majority of the encyclical at the beginning is explained 'Philosopher'. He's the most important. He's the real man. He's the scientist, the background - he's the guy. They all follow him from that. Remember about philosophy. Every human being is a philosopher.

Philosophy: the actual term is : Love of Wisdom. The Science of ALL things through the highest causes. To put it briefly, philosophy is the science of ALL things. Through the highest cause - or the deepest cause. The highest or the deepest cause - philosophy is the science of ALL things. How many scientists - one science. Every human being is a philosopher. No man can be without philosophy. Philosophy governs every one of our lives. If I can change the philosophy of man I have changed him. If I do - if I can destroy true philosophy in a man, I have destroyed him. There is the war - philosophy!

  • Theology in the real world, in the true world, not in the world of the modernist is actually the same as philosophy with one exception only. Theology is the science and study of all things but with divine revelation helping us out. Through the light of divine revelation, with the help of grace.
  • Philosophy? Not considering the help of divine revelation and the help of grace.
The real world is a theological world, not a philosophical world. It's a theological world. Because God made us with grace - Adam, and he made us for heaven. So this philosopher is the most important. And you've got the heavy explanation of what philosophy is in paragraph 6 through 13 of Pascendi. Understanding 6 through 13 is understanding everything in the encyclical. How the modernist works and then, once you understand that, you can take the system and plug it in, plug it in, plug it in anywhere.

So, he's got seven heads. One of the first things that the modernist tells you each science is independent. Each science is unrelated to every other science particularly religious sciences and physical sciences. These sciences should never be connected because, remember, going back to our chart - what's the principle? That beyond the phenomena these things are not real. The things in the centre are real. Remember the lines never cross. So therefore, in theology we learned God created all things in six days. That's fine. We believe that. But we know, in science, that the world evolved over millions of years. There should be no conflict between the man that knows that the world has evolved over millions of years through scientific evolutionary processes, and the same man knows that God truly created the world in six days. This is not a problem. This is not a contradiction. Why not? Because I believe in my spiritual mind that God created the world in six days - that has a lot of meaning. It just means a lot. Six is a very important number.

You know I was born on the 6th June. Six is such an important number to me. It's the ancient number of the man. Six days is very important you know - so whatever means a lot to me I firmly believe in my spiritual mind that God created the world in six days. But in my REAL mind I know that the world has evolved for millions of years. There shouldn't be any conflict. The Catholic religion and evolution have no conflict one with another. St. Pius X says when a modernist tells you that no less - he's a liar. He's a liar! Why does he tell you that? In order that you might put your guard down. Come back tomorrow and he will tell you you can't believe in the six days any more. Come back the next day and he will tell you that your spirituality is only for morality. Remember, about thirty years ago the average human being believed in morality. Being good, avoiding evil in our world content was a matter of religion. Whereas the REAL world's construction and make-up was a matter of science.

But we now know that it is a matter of science that homosexuality is the normal behaviour
for some human beings. Therefore it is NOT a matter of morality. We now know that
homosexuality has exited the realm of morality and is in the realm of science.​

Therefore, it is not the right for a religious individual to comment on homosexuality. And if people of religion speak against homosexuality they are going against the known dictates and proven science therefore they can be imprisoned; they can lose their tax exemption status; they can be fined; they can be shut down. Because they are not staying in the world of religion. How did that happen? Remember the chart - visible world grows and religious world shrinks. Yesterday the priest would tell you you cannot be married ten times; yesterday the priest could tell you that you could not be homosexual, practice the vice of homosexuality and go to heaven. Now, the priest can no longer tell you that because science has advanced.

Is science going to stop advancing? No!
I myself have already seen just walking by TV sets in the airport seeing barred things here and there four or five years ago - already an English TV show whatever it was - I don't know the name of it - in which these people got together and they had a bishop who was an African bishop defending that Christianity has been good for humanity and they have scientists defending that Christianity was bad for humanity. The African bishop did a good job of explaining. At the very beginning they ask people do they think religion is good for humanity and about 70% raised their hands saying it was good for humanity.Then they had a debate - at the end of the debate about 30% of people raised their hands and said that religion was good for humanity. In fact the African bishop explained quite well, in the part that I saw of religion, of humanity going to hell in a hand basket without religion. The scientist was an idiot, but obviously the crowd was kind of a rigged crowd. It was a rigged, arranged TV show to get people to realise that religion has been the cause of all the wars in society. Religion has been the cause of all violence. Look at the Muslims fighting the Christians; the Protestants fighting the Catholics. It's religion that's the problem. So therefore, in order to have an ordered society the stage is that we must be rid of religion. St. Pius X points that out - so remember this is an ongoing application of the movements of the modernist universe. Four elements, subconscious, conscious, visible phenomena only as visible, and beyond the phenomena. Beyond the phenomena- realm of religion; subconscious on the inside realm of religion. Always shrinking. Conscious - realm of the psychiatrist, the psychologist and the doctor. The visible reality - the realm of the philosopher, the scientist these things are going to continue to grow.

How does it happen? The modernist explains this one science of all things. What happens? In the very beginning everything begins with the first step is agnosticism. Man comes into the world. Phenomenism, narcism vital immanence and then creation. So the first step is agnosticism. Remember this about everything. The first step in theology - agnosticism; the first step in history - agnosticism. The first rule of the critic - agnosticism. First rule of the apologist - agnosticism. First rule of the Reformer - agnosticism.

The real world begins with agnosticism.
And here are the keys to understand about agnosticism. The key element : I CANNOT know God. So you can replace God with Mohammad Ali; you can replace God with George Bush; with Donald Trump; with the Muslim religion ; with anything. Remember it's a system. If I cannot know God I can plug out God. Plug in anything. My first knowledge is that I am absolutely certain that I cannot know God and no-one can know God. Remember, the idea of agnosticism is that it is beyond knowledge. So you don't know the five notions of the Blessed Trinity. You don't know the five notions of the Blessed Trinity - you don't have them memorised. But all you have to do is be told them, and then you will know them. You may not know all the details of the principles of geometry but you can look them up and you will know them. This is what is known by agnosticism - it is impossible to know, no matter how intelligent you are. No matter how studied you are you CANNOT KNOW. This is the key to the success of the modernist in his argumentation.

With regard to anything that is not visible: first principle - that which is not a principle cannot be known by anyone period - finished! Remember in our Creed God created all things visible and invisible. He did not only create visible things, he created invisible things. Not just the Angels but in fact the invisible elements of our universe. He created visible and invisible things. The fact is that nature is ALWAYS invisible like darkness, tableness, whiteboardness, wallness - all that is invisible. Stickness (holding up his pointer) - but it is real and it's created by God. So the modernist says, it is NOT real. And that is how he begins (agnosticism). But later on he's going to tell you - the only person that can know this stuff - well, it happens to be...well...me. And here is the key difference between modernism and subjectivism. First step - agnosticism. Whenever you meet anyone on any subject - I"m a theologian and I can tell you that the Catholic church teaches that there are five notions in the Blessed Trinity Look, I never heard that before I don't know anything about it. And I know that you can't know that because if it was known it would have been on the news; if it was known I would have known about it already. It cannot be known. Now you will notice in the world today this kind of argument is normal amongst everybody. How come I never heard about it? How come I didn't see it? How come I don't know it? If I don't know it, no matter what it is - it cannot be known and no-one can know it. That's Rule No. 1 - agnosticism.

St. Pius X says, how does this begin?

Later on in paragraph 41 it says modernism lives in pride as in its own house. Modernism lives in pride as in its own house. Pride is the foundation. Pride is what makes modernism powerful inside of hearts; pride is what makes modernism work inside hearts. Agnosticism, in no matter what the subject is...my wife, she is an expert on philosophy and she's an expert on science, and history, she's an expert on history. She's always an expert on one subject that is, the subject you're talking about right now. You can change that subject as many times as you like and you will discover she is the expert on ever single stinking one of them. That's actually modernism. It is not JUST pride, but it is pride turned into a system. It's pride turned into a way of operating in every aspect of life. Normal pride doesn't actually act like that. Normal pride is you know, I play basketball - I'm better than all you guys. But at least I can bounce the ball. So if I have never dribbled a ball in my life I'm not going to tell you I am better than all you guys. It was a musician told me about that about twenty years ago. I went to a wedding and they had this band- there was a rock-n-roll band and the youngest guy in the band was 106 or something. I don't know - the Beatles or something. What on earth has happened to you guys? He said that when we used to start playing he says you know what now happens, a guy comes in and wants to be a drummer. He's been on the drum for two days. He knew how to hit it and time or whatever. He's not going to be a lead drummer and he's not an expert in drums. Another guy comes in and he's picked up a guitar twice and doesn't even know where the notes are. He can't even strum the guitar and play crap music. He's an expert. Everybody's an expert in everything and this is the hallmark of our age and one of the goals where the modernist is leading.

If you believe that, the real person does that and he becomes useless. But in fact there is only going to be one true expert. So agnosticism is the beginning.

The difference between subjectivism and modernism.
Subjectivism teaches that whatever you believe is right, whatever I believe is right, we all believe different things and they're all right. One is right for you and one is right for me. Modernism does not teach that. Modernism is completely objective. Modernism believes that there's only one objective truth. And it's the hard truth whether you like it or not. There's only one truth. This truth, however, changes. Why does it change? Because of evolution. Since the truth changes - if you grab on to a truth that you understood when you were five when you come back at ten it's useless because the truth has changed between five and ten. Therefore, how is the only way I can come in contact with true objective truth. The only way is the latest expert. Expert, latest expert. Whatever the latest expert says is true.

You know, I once had an argument with a society priest - one example - I mention this sometimes in sermons or in talks. About ten years ago - a little more than ten years ago - with an SSPX priest we argued about : margarine and butter. A very theological argument. And he said, you know scientists proved in the 1970's that butter is bad for your health and you need margarine. Margarine is good for you, butter is bad. And so for about 30 years margarine was really good butter really bad but they discovered in the late nineties that margarine is bad and butter is good. So butter became good again. So if you had margarine in 1979 you're healthy. If you had butter in 1979 you're dying. If you have margarine in 2009 you're dying. If you have butter in 2009 you're healthy. Why? Because the scientist's view of margarine and butter changed and therefore the effects of of margarine and butter on the body changed. That is really true. But that is how modernism works. And we had this argument, and we argued and argued until I said the body is the same kind of body that it was before. If margarine was bad for yesterday it's still bad today. If butter was good for you yesterday it is still good today. But the scientist said one thing one day, and another thing another day. They said the truth one day and an error the other day. No, he said, truth both days - the truth changed.

Now this applies to everything. What is the consequence of truth changing? It means my only contact with truth is expert and authority. I must accept whatever the expert and the latest authority says. That is what I have to do. Or else I cannot know any truth. So that is a very important principle of modernism, or conclusion of modernism. We have to accept what the experts say. We have no choice. This is called pure tyranny. Absolute pure tyranny. Because the expert can say example, I have already dealt with multiple cases and an application of this is social workers. A social worker comes to your house a police officer comes to your house social worker says in my professional opinion this child should not be with that mother. Get him out of here. The police officer is required to move the child. The social worker says this parent is beating this child to living hell this parent is an alcoholic this parent is a serial killer this parent is a murder or any other thing only in my professional opinion as a trained social worker this child must go. That's it! No proof is required; no explanation is required - that is modernism. Modernism by itself is in every aspect of our society today. Getting back to the beginning, agnosticism is the first step. (1. Agnosticism)

When man began to evolve he realised that the world outside of him was big. And he wanted an explanation. He asked the question, why? And he did not know the answer. In not knowing the answer he decided to invent something that would explain the answer. He said 'GOD'. Anything that cannot be explained or understood - God did. As he grows in his understanding God gets smaller while the understanding gets bigger. But in the very beginning he understands there is a God. And so we go from the first philosopher who asks the question, why? To the first believer he believes that the answer to that question is God because he doesn't know anything else. He feels the need for an explanation of why he's hungry; and explanation of why, when he eats certain things that makes him happy; eats other things he dies. He wants to understand why he has certain feelings of anger, certain feelings of happiness; certain feelings of pleasure; certain feelings of good days, bad days. He has thoughts. He doesn't understand why any of these things are happening. What's the answer? GOD.

Who's going to explain these things?

So he's going to become a believer. That's the next stage. He's going to become a believer. What's going to happen is there is a process which is the engine of modernism - Vital Imminence. There is this power. (2. Vital immanence) There is this power inside of man that makes him create something. This is an evolutionary process. Remember, first you have nothing. And that 'nothing' has a power inside of it that makes the first big bang. Then you have fire - stardust. You'll see it in Rock-n-roll songs; you'll see it in modern scientific explanations; in modern moral explanations; in modern schools they always tell you, we are stardust. We came from a fire and an explosion. That's what that fire is. It's called the fire of hell. That explosion was a creation of hell in the beginning of time when Lucifer was driven into hell by St. Michael. And Lucifer wants to make himself the God of all men, saying you came from fire. This is theological. This is spiritual. So, when the ruler of the fire comes to rule over us we will accept him. We've known him well. We understand his thinking. We understand the way he operates. And we believe and follow him. That is what is going to happen when the antichrist comes under the direction of Lucifer. What makes it work? Vital Immanence.

You will be like unto God. You have the power inside of you to create - really create! Make something out of nothing. There was an ape and he made man. There was a dog and he made horse. There was a fish and he made amphibian and amphibian made reptile and reptile made bird. And so we're always creating new things. There is an immanent vital power inside of us. And the basic understanding of it is that God is the first product of this immanent vital power.

Is God real?
O yes he is. God is very real. How do we know God is real? Because there are outside needs, outside influences came inside of me and then they were vomited out. Outside influences came inside of me and and they were pooped on. God is poop and God is vomit. It's real. God is brought forth out of my inner self - he's vomited forth. So when a modernist says God is real - yes, I believe in a real God - he's a real God who came forth from man hence the modernist says, as St. Pius points out God is both the creatOR and the creatED. God is creator and created. He creates the spiritual things in the world - he was created by man - vital immanence.

No one can know>vital immanence>production of realities. Now we can know those realities Agnosticism disappears; knowledge is replaced; the world of agnosticism disappears and we only have the world of the visible and the conscious.

Transcription Class 3

Take the Encyclical on page 4. You have there Lamentibili Sane. This is another syllabus of errors. Anybody know the author of first syllabus of errors was? (Answer Pius IX). Yes, the great Pius IX in 1864 and Archbishop Lefebvre in his last conference, he says that the syllabus of errors of l864 'Lamentabili Sane' of 1907 and Pascendi of l907, he says these were explosive at the time. They dropped a bomb in in the middle of the Disney world dream - dreamworld. It tried to shake the Catholics back to Catholic thinking - back to reality. The objective truth of the Catholic faith. So, in this Lamentabili Sane - it is the addendum to the encyclical 'Pascendi'. He has a whole list of all the errors. There are 65 errors that are listed. In the Syllabus of errors it is something like up to 72 or 80. These errors are, one after the other, just condemned, condemned, condemned. So there is no ambiguity, there is no confusion. So the great St. Pius X he exposes the modernists; shows their teaching and that is what were studying. Fr. Pfeiffer is covering and is summed up in B.W. paper. He also gives the remedies - Fr. Pfeiffer will cover that at the end of the encyclical on how to combat modernism. The Pope enlists all the forces of the church - Bishops, Priests to combat modernism and stay faithful to the Catholic Church and tradition.

Archbishop Lefebvre said that these documents divided Catholics already. We saw Vatican II divided into the conciliar church and the Catholic Church. But this division had been going on since liberalism hit the scene and that is basically with Protestantism, then the French Revolution. Referring to a diagram (see below) Father Hewko continues... this is from the eyes of the faith which is the only real vision of history that matters because everything in Scripture is through the eyes of God. So when a kingdom falls or a kingdom builds up it is always centred on the faith. The Israelites, when they are good they are loyal to God and obeyed His commandments. When they are bad, which happens a lot - it's up and down - the history of the Israelites. When they were bad it's because they fall to ecumenism, mixed marriages, and they abandon the faith. Ecumenism and apostasy. If we could have one big history of the world from Adam and Eve and the creation of Almighty God - Adam was created. Then you have the history of the Israelites. I will not go through all of the Old Testament here, but there will be after the flood of Noah the stages from Noah, Abraham - I am not going to go through all that. Bishop Williamson has, in the past, done a very good summary of Venerable Vartholomew Holzauser (see attachment pdf's). He talks about the seven ages of the Church. You're all familiar with that right? For many years Bishop Williamson has been summarising that, we were taught it in the seminary. And it is very, very good. From Adam and Eve you have the beginning of the Israelites. The Jews are chosen and they were supposed to receive the Messiah, the Redeemer which is the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity who took our flesh at the Incarnation. This is the centre of all history - the Incarnation.

It is not fair to history to put it in this compact picture right here, but here you've got 6,000 years before Christ. And this is bigger, (referring to diagram) the 2000 years after Christ. So you can see it is not 100% accurate obviously - but I a just making a point with this. So the Israelites are chosen by God to prepare for him. The Gentiles are the nations such as the Roman and the Greek, Pagan nations that fell from the primitive revelation and had crumbs of it in their false beliefs.

So, when Christ actually DID come, after the 6,000 years from Adam to the second Adam you have the launching of the whole mission of the Catholic Church down to the Second Coming of Christ. So between the first coming and the Second Coming the Fathers of the Church always talk about - you have the vision of history. All history is centred on Christ - His Coming before and when he came and then once He came the First Coming to the Second Coming. That's all human history. So, in a nutshell, in a very brief nutshell, and I know this is open to every kind of criticism but it is the only way we can get it from an eagle's vision. The vision of history.

The first ages of the Church
Y
ou have the age of the Apostles who are commanded by Christ, Go preach to all nations, go spread the Catholic faith, all those who believe are baptised, not in the name of Allah, not in the name of Buddah , but in the Name of the true God - the Father, The Son and the Holy Ghost. Those who are baptised will be saved and those who reject it will be condemned. Christ is not an option. And he proves it by his miracles and his Ascension into Heaven. The Apostles and our Blessed Mother watched our Lord ascend - physically ascend. He was brutally beaten 40 days before in the Passion. Everything about our Lord proves He's God and all the miracles. The modernists are so wretched as we're going to see pretty soon. How they attack our Lord Jesus Christ himself. They attack the Gospels . They attack all the fundamentals of the Catholic faith and that is why St. Pius X raised such a fury against the modernists and rounded all the clergy to fight against it. In those days, 1907 - most of the Bishops backed him, and only a few were going against him and the syllabus of errors. Now the proportion has gone to the reverse. All the Bishops have gone AGAINST St. Pius X and the syllabus of errors and the position of Archbishop Lefebvre obviously. They have gone all against him, and only a few now - how many bishops now? You see this picture?

Here is the general in the middle of combat. Archbishop Lefebvre is in war. It's 1988 - this is on the night before Rome (Cardinal Ratzinger) called him and said, Look, we're going to send you a limousine come down to Rome and we'll have more discussions. And Archbishop Lefebvre said, enough of discussions you play games with me, you try to fool me, you give me promises, you promise me we can keep our seminaries we can keep the Latin Mass we can even preach against modernism. You promised me I could have a bishop but we cannot work together because we are going in completely opposite directions. We cannot work together. You, modernist Rome, want to dechristianise, uncrown Christ the King, and spread your modernism everywhere. We want to fight for Christ the King and stay faithful to what Christ and the Church has handed down. We cannot work together. So, in this combat when he's about to be excommunicated the very day after - I had the happiness as a seminarian to be here sitting on this side of the altar. The four bishops are there consecrated! Their mission? Hold the Catholic faith; take care of the sheep; feed the flock; you don't have jurisdiction only the Pope can give that. That's clear that's understood. But your mission as Bishops - keep the faith until Rome comes back to tradition. Is that so difficult to understand. That is why we're all here.And why the seminary exists. We have to maintain the fight til Rome comes back to tradition. So Bishop Fellay who happened to be the first major burser

of the SSPX - tThe burser is the one who holds the purse. I won't say any more, because as you know there was one amongst the twelve apostles who also held the purse. I won't say more, but pray for all of them. And Bisop de Galleretta has been silent. Bishop Williamson, as you know has fallen into defending the Novus Ordo Mass and excusing the council. Bishop Tissier de Mallerais gives us hope that he can turn around. He's written the life of Archbishop Lefebvre. He was one of those priests who May 5th 1988 just a month before this - almost two months before this (the consecration) - he told Archbishop Lefebvre, with a few of the priests, sign the protocol - sign the protocol. And Archbishop Lefebvre did sign and that night before the Tabernacle he said, I betrayed you Lord, I know I betrayed you. He took his signature off the next day because he saw it was a trap. It WAS a trap!

So, here, the General (ABL) in 1988 June 30th - one of the greatest events probably in the history of the church, equivalent to St. Athanasius what he had to do to defend the faith - and now the four bishops have all fallen. Bishop Tissier de Mallerais should know better. He's kind of just silent - going along. But pray for all of them. But this is the state of the war right now.

So Christ, His mission was - spread the faith! Don't change it, don't compromise it and what's the very definition of tradition anybody? What is tradition? Others and the Catholics understood the Catholic definition of -


What is tradition as opposed to Scripture?
Scripture is always the written word of God written down and approved by the Catholic Church which books are canonical at the exclusion of books that are not canonical. So what is tradition - in a nutshell? It is the deposit of faith, the handing down - 'tradere' means to hand down. Hand down the baton. So tradition - and Archbishop Lefebvre mentioned this many times in his sermon. It's the handing down of the deposit of faith down the centuries until Christ comes at his Second Coming.


And what is the deposit of the faith?
Everything contained in Scripture and tradition. That can't be changed. So what's the duty of the Apostles, and all the saints and Popes down the centuries until Christ comes again? Hand down the Deposit of the Faith. Again! It's a simple command. Like Archbishop Lefebvre, his command to his four bishops was very simple. Hold the faith until we have a perfectly Catholic Pope. Then you can surrender your episcopal authority to the decision of the Pope. But until then you don't compromise, you don't play games, you don't make false dialogues and agreements with modernist Rome. That's why we're in this battlefield of the resistance right now.

So, back to the overall picture. The Apostles go out. The Bible is not actually written - all combined together as one book until about the year 399. After the apostles go out we have the first martyrs. You have the age of the martyrs, you have the age of the Fathers. Again, this is a little artificial because the first 300 years is going to be all blood - martyrdom. Then 400's 500's 600's - 1000th year then l517th year 1717 1917 1962 (beginning of Vat.II). (See diagram below). So what you've got is - the devil - remember St. John in the Apocalypse he talks about -


The Four Horses
The first horse is the white horse (Father points to the age of the Apostles) the apostles go out to spread the faith. St. Thomas bilocates to South America. St. Thomas would be martyred in India. The other apostles would spread throughout all of Kuwait, Iraq, Turkey and into Europe, and St. Andrew even into England. Then down into Africa. So the devil would have his revenge - with the Muslims he will - all those countries that were once Catholic fell to the Muslims about 600 years later. So, the age of the martyrs, the age of the Fathers. The martyrs is the red horse, the Fathers is the black horse - the Fathers combat the black heresies that attack the Catholic faith. After the ten persecutions of Rome ending in the year 313 with the Edict of Milan under the great Constance - in the year 313 he will put the Edict of Milan, and lift the persecutions. He will self-convert to the Catholic faith. He will be baptised a Catholic at his deathbed. There are the heresies - that is the black horse – these are all the attacks against our Lord Jesus Christ. Heresies of all sorts attack him. He's not God, or he IS God, but does not have a real body; or he has a real body but he's not God at all – Arianism. Or Christ has only one will, and not two wills. Monothelitism and then all these attacks against him.

The Church, the Councils, all the Vatican Councils down to Vatican I defend the Catholic faith and condemn heresies. That is what the Councils do in the history of the Church. They are always dogmatic, and they are called together by the Pope with all the Bishops of the world - or all those Bishops that can make it - and they defend and teach the Catholic faith clearly under propositions. They condemn the errors clearly. So there's no confusion. All the Catholic people know don't eat grass over there you are going to get poisoned. Don't walk over to the the cliff over there or the wolf will push you over and eat you. Stay in the green pastures of Catholic tradition. We are the sheep and Mother Church guides the sheep - Our Lord guides. So the great Fathers of the Church - these Fathers were the first to know the Apostles like St. Justin, St. Polycarp - they knew St. John. So you have the first wave of those who keep the Catholic faith AFTER the Apostles are called the Fathers of the Church. That's why,if you know Protestants and I am sure most of you do, they are all about the Bible - the Bible right? Try to get them to read tradition - the first wave of those after the Apostles will all believe everything the Bible teaches but also of Catholic tradition. The seven Sacraments, the Primacy of Peter, Purgatory, Hell, Heaven, the Judgement - all these truths of the Catholic faith which are not NAMED in the bible for example, the Blessed Trinity - we believe in the Blessed Trinity but it doesn't SAY that in the Bible. But we believe it. The word for Purgatory does not exist in the Bible but it's in the Book of Machabees and it fills some of the epistles of St. Paul. The Church, guided by the Holy Ghost makes clear the teachings of Scripture. St. Peter says there's many things in Scripture that many, by private judgement, will interpret the Bible to their own destruction. Who can name one of the princes of darkness that even quoted Scripture to Christ?

He quoted the psalm 4. It was Lucifer who tempted Christ. Jump off the pinnacle of the Temple and ABC and NBC news will be there filming, and the Angels will come and catch you. Then everyone will proclaim you as the Messiah. Christ says to him, Begone Satan! The Fathers of the Church are the defenders of the faith. Among them is St. Athanasius and St. John Chrysostrom, St. Basil the Great, St. Hilary of Poitier. The last of the Fathers will be up to year 1100 - St. Bernard. St. Bernard is the last of the Fathers. As Catholics we have a great veneration for the Fathers of the church. St. Thomas Aquinas - they are part of the ordinary Magisterium - the teaching of the church. Whatever is in conformity with Scripture and the unanimous consent of the Fathers we have to believe as Catholics. Whatever goes AGAINST the Scriptures and the unanimous consent of the Fathers and the Councils of the Church is all part of tradition. Tradition can't change and remember it is the handing down of the deposit of the Faith. So it is just handing down what's been given from the Blessed Trinity. The Age of the Fathers they are defending against the black horse of heresies.


Then comes the Age of the Monastics.
That is the spreading of the catholic faith all the way up to the high Middle Ages. You have the monks going out to convert the world. And they convert it by building cities of prayer, holiness, study and farming all centred around the altar. You have a miniature Catholic city in the monastery under the Rule of St. Benedict. It will be St. Benedict's Rule that is going to spread the farthest and be the most palatable for people. He is going to make saints. Over 55,000 saints out of the Benedictine Order. Pope Pius XII will call St. Benedict 'The Father of Europe' - because many cities in Europe that has saints names they've started with monasteries, and around them people moved and became Catholic. The Catholic faith spread this way.

St. Boniface would go where? Germany to convert the German barbarians. Who will go to England? Another Benedectine monk with about thirty monks. St. Augustine of Canterbury. And who will go to Ireland? St. Patrick who went and lived several years in the Monastery of Lerin in Southern France. He will live as a monk, he will be ordained a priest, he will go to Rome and he will be commissioned to go convert Ireland. And then all throughout France - all throughout all of Europe you have monasteries being established - the spreading of the Catholic faith. These monks, many of them are Missionary monks. They will live in the monastery but also go out. Like St. Bernard to go preach the Crusades in the 10 and 11 hundreds. So the faith spread. Poland becomes Catholic, France of course is Catholic. Spain becomes completely Catholic, Italy becomes Catholic, Ireland and all of Europe. In the Ukraine 988 the great St. Vladimir will become Catholic. He's looking for the true religion. Of course his grandmother was Catholic - St. Olga. He will have Muslims come and he will ask them about their faith - their religion. They said we can't drink any wine, it is forbidden by our religion. Well, he said, my people love vodka and wine so that can't be the true religion (laughter). Then the Jews came and they kept bashing this person, Our Lord Jesus Christ. So we had finally a Catholic priest come out from Constantinople. Those were the Eastern Rite priests. They came from St. John who died in Ephesus - well his bones were there and he lived there with the Virgin Mary. St. John would begin the spreading of the faith there, and what developed there was the Byzantine rite of the Mass. The Roman rite will start with St. Peter when he is crucified in Rome. The Eastern rite priests would come out and St. Vladimir will hear about the faith. He said, I want all my people to become Catholic with me. All of Ukraine everyone embraced the Catholic faith. Like Mexico in l531 the priests were baptising day and night. It became a Catholic nation. What you have here, and in France in the seven and eight hundreds the great Charlamagne unifies all of his kingdom which stretches from Germany to Spain with all of France and all of Belgium - all that is Catholic and is unified with the Roman rite. The Gregorian chant; the tridentine Mass, that we know it was the same Mass and he unified all of his kingdom. So the faith spreads and catches fire and this is the building up of the high Middle Ages crusade.


The Middle Ages
was the Catholic civilisation rooted in Sacred Scripture, in the Fathers of the Church and in the Classical Tradition. The Classical Tradition is the pagan ancients - for example, Aristotle and Plato with their philosophy. This will be baptised by the Catholic Church. St. Thomas Aquinas says all commentaries on the metaphysics of Aristotle. He doesn't even have to crack much of Aristotle - he baptises him. So that is just one example - but remember Christ said, when I be lifted up (points to Crusade in Middle Ages) I will draw all things to myself. So Christ assumes - he draws the best of all the ancient world. The Israelites prepare for Him and all the Scriptures the Old Testament - and even the Gentiles, the Roman law, the Barbarian raw material and the Greek philosophy. All this will be baptised by the Church. So that St. Basil will write to his nephews and say, alright we're going to learn about these Pagan gods in school. But take what's good and leave what's bad. Imitate the bravery of Hercules; imitate the virtue of Apollo; imitate but don't imitate what is evil in them. So that is what he is going to write to his nephews. The Church will do that, take what is good and leave what's bad in the Pagan world.

You have the real flowering of what is called the Ages of the Faith from about 500 to l500. This is like the thousand year glory of the Church. And Dom Guéranger will call this the public life of our Lord. The Palm Sunday where he's acknowledged as King by all the world. The whole world is Catholic.

We will stop there and pick up at the next class but just let me close with a few quotes from St. Pius X. This all ties in. Look at Lamentabli -


These are all condemned starting with No. 1
1. The ecclesiastical law which prescribes that books concerning the Divine Scriptures -that is what books are true and approved by the Church - are subject to previous examination does not apply to critical scholars and students of scientific exegesis of the Old and New Testament.

So remember what Fr. Pfeiffer was stressing - who's going to be the new gods that explain everything? The experts! the scholars! the scientists! The bible is subject to be believed except by the scholars and the exegesis critics who are going to say, well you can't believe Adam and Eve really, it is just a story. Jonah and the whale was just a fictional story; Noah's Ark was just a story. These wretched so-called scholars smashed the Holy Sciptures and the Faith. St. Pius X is hammering them here and exposes these rats.

No. 2.
The Church’s interpretation of the Sacred Books is by no means to be rejected; nevertheless, it is subject to the more accurate judgment and correction of who? -the so called scholars and exegetes. (An exegetes is a Scripture scholar = one who studies Scripture). St. Pius X here is condemning in no. 2 that, alright the Church has her interpretation of what we're supposed to believe in the Bible, BUT these modern scientists have a more accurate interpretation. So, Sodom and Gomorrah was just a fictional story to scare people from the sin of perversion. So you see how wretched and perverse modernism really is. This is just touching the surface. They completely overthrow all the scriptures and make a mockery of Catholic tradition. That is why Archbishop Lefebvre - he saw clearly - you cannot work with these rats. Even if the rats are in white or purple or red you cannot work with them until they come back to Catholic tradition. And that is, as St. Pius X will say, and Father Pfeiffer I am sure, will repeat it many times. What is one of the simple antidotes against moderism - anybody? for the common Joe, the sheep in the field? (Answr)The Catholic Catechism of St. Pius X, the Council of Trent and the old Baltimore Catechism. Not the new ones, beware of the new ones. But the old ones. And that gives the simple baby-food, or bite-size Catholic faith. Anyone can follow it, anyone can understand it. Children of five years old they can recite the Catechism - they know the faith. It's in their blood! And that is the biggest defence against the rotten modernists. The modernist will start developing with Protestantism. We will come to this - the decline to the One World Order and the apostasy we will come to that next time.​
