INTRODUCTION 

The need for confirmation [1] by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, that Jesus Christ, true God and true man, is the only vehicle for the salvation of man - and not the Roman Catholic Church - explains the wave of disharmony originally caused by such document within Ecumenical circles and other religions of the world.

If 2,000 years after the Incarnate Word of God founded His Church, commanded it to Evangelize the world and equipped it with true supernatural powers [2], over 80% of the world population is not Christian, and those who called themselves Christians have been fighting, bickering and, in too many cases, murdering each other in the Name of God, there is obviously a problem somewhere, and we know, with great certainty, that God is not part of the problem.

Since God is not the problem, it is obvious that the root of the problem is man's arrogance, his Imperial Ego, which is fueled by the Prince of Arrogance - satan himself.


PURPOSE OF DOCUMENT

NOTE:  When we use the term "Catholic Church", it does not refer to the Roman Catholic Church. We utilize the term "Catholic Church" in the manner that it was intended. "Catholic" = "Universal", that is the Church founded by Jesus Christ to serve as a universal instrument to spread the Good News and assist His children to return to the Father.

The purpose of this document:

(a) Is not to contradict the fact that Jesus Christ is indeed the only avenue to the salvation of man;
(b) Is not to contradict the fact that He founded the Catholic (Universal) Church;
(c) Is not to contradict the fact that the Bishop of Rome has been the acknowledged Successor of Peter until recently.

To contradict any of the above facts would be like negating the fact that the sun rises at dawn and sets at dusk.

So... What is then the purpose of this document? The purpose of this document is to:

(a) Identify why the Evangelization effort by the Roman Catholic Church has failed;
(b) Point it out in the spirit of the document Dominus Iesus;
(c) Indicate what it will lead to; and
(d) Suggest what can the faithful at large do about it.


DETAILS

A man, when shaving with a razor blade, looks into a mirror. Otherwise, he will lacerate his face. Likewise, a surgeon cannot conduct a surgical procedure blindfolded.

Then, let us, members of the Body of Christ and the true constituents the true Catholic Church, look closely into the mirror so that we may be able to identify the problems which have plagued the Evangelization effort in the last 2,000 years.

At the first close look, we will be horrified. The reflected image is grotesque but, there is hope. God is indeed with us, the Catholic Faith has a treasure trove filled with the Sacraments and God wants to help us to bring out the beauty of Christ, as reflected by the Catholic Faith, as it was originally intended.

Why identify the problems now? Because then, and only then, we can correct the errors that we have perpetuated and move forward to the full fraternal unity which Jesus Christ, God Incarnate, called us to.

Drifting Away From the Roman Catholic Church
(and consequently the Catholic Faith and eventually God)

Perhaps the best way to illustrate the problem is reprinting below translated excerpts of a letter miguel de Portugal wrote to the Portuguese Episcopate on November 1993. [3]

Recently there have been many debates and reports regarding the rapid spread of religious sects in Portugal. It is reported that the Bishop of Setubal [4] declared that the Portuguese Church has to find new ways to counter head-on the religious sects."

As with any problem, if there is not a good definition of the problem, it cannot be resolved. The question that we must ask ourselves in Portugal and in the whole world is: Why are the faithful abandoning the Roman Catholic Church and flocking to sect-like religious organizations and other Christian institutions.

The definition is not difficult:

(a) Whomever is not fed in one place, abandons it for another one where nourishment is promised;
(b) Whomever is thirsty and cannot find water where he is at, abandons it for the place where water is promised;
(c) Whomever searches for the truth in the Roman Church and all he sees are lies and hypocrisy, abandons the Church and will go to the first place where the truth is promised.

Let us take one single case as an example. "How does the youth views the Catholic Church?

(a) If they attend Mass... they do not understand the miracle which is taking place... In addition homilies are seldom directed toward their immediate needs. Then, why would they want to attend Mass?
(b) They see their parents piously attending Mass on Sundays and then witness them... idolizing the material world and indiscriminately breaking the Laws of God the rest of the time.
(c) They see that their shepherds, the clergy... more immersed in the material world than they (the youth) themselves are.
(d) They witness so many people who live in mortal sin and yet take Holy Communion without the required Sacrament of Reconciliation.
(e) On the one hand they are told about the Eucharist Presence of Jesus Christ... and witness that... the majority of the Clergy and the adults faithful do not give it... reverence...

If that is the respect that the ecclesiastic, family and social leaders of the youth give to the Living God, it is logical that the youth not be very impressed with that "God".

With the above general review of the key causes behind the dwindling of the ranks of faithful and vocations, let us stand a few steps further back and look at the Administration of the Catholic Church as a religious institution.

Function of the Hierarchy

The Function of the Hierarchy is clearly and unequivocally stated in the Holy Scriptures. [5]

Then the twelve (apostles), calling together the multitude of the disciples, said: It is not reason that we should leave the word of God and serve tables. ...look ye out among you seven men..., whom we may appoint over this business. But we will give ourselves continually to prayer and to the ministry of the word.

Unfortunately, the Hierarchy seem to have lost their way centuries ago and considered that it was more important to build up the Roman Catholic Church by temporal means than by spiritual means. Thus, at the Christianization of Emperor Constantine the Catholic Church began its journey to become an Imperial temporal force, the Roman Catholic Church, to the detriment of its charter to Evangelize the world.

The Dominus Iesus Document Reflects an Imperial Church

Some elements within the Vatican, in keeping with centuries old inbred philosophy of operation, seems to be more interested in making sure that the Roman Catholic Church retained its Imperial Supremacy than to portray it as what it really is: The best equipped vehicle available on earth to bring mankind to God through Jesus Christ.

True words poured as a torrent through the Dominus Iesus Document, yet the Elitist Imperial Spirit of the Opus Dei [6a] permeated the entire document pushing people away instead of drawing them to the fold, thus, causing great distress to His Holiness John Paul II.

Dear brothers and sisters - when one has a good "product", a "product" endorsed and promoted in the spiritual domain by the Creator Who sustains an awesome Universe, and no one is "buying", and many are actively rejecting, there has to be a problem in the "promotion and/or perception of the product".

Many leaders within the Roman Catholic Church have lost control and sight of the reality that the Catholic Church was established for man and not that man was created for the Roman Catholic Church. If man had not fallen from Paradise, obviously the Catholic Church would not be needed to help man to return to God since man already lived in communion with God in Paradise. Therefore, it is a theological fact that the Catholic Church was established for man.

What has been done is essentially deify the human Institution - that is, deify the Administrators of the Roman Catholic Church. This movement has reached scandalous levels and, in essence, blocks many of the avenues to the Salvation in Christ utilizing the Sacraments which are part of the Catholic Faith.

For Example

As Dominus Iesus rightfully teaches, Jesus Christ is the Head of the Catholic Church. The members of the Catholic Church constitute the rest of the Body of Christ. Therefore we are a "Whole" - The Mystical Body of Christ.

The Virgin Mary was declared the Mother of the Church [6b]. Absolute truth: She is the Mother of Jesus and He, from the cross, gave us to Her as Her children. Thus, the Head and the rest of the Body - the entire Mystical Body of Christ, is indeed Mary's child.

For the purposes of the Imperial agenda, the Roman Catholic Church is being presented as the Mother of the faithful more and more. "Mother"? The Roman Catholic Church? If Mary is the Mother of the Roman Catholic Church and the Roman Catholic Church is the Mother of the faithful, does that make Mary the grandmother of the faithful?

Is this just another Imperial slip?

No, it is not a slip. It is a very calculated procedure. Our true Mother, the ever Virgin Mary, has now been supplanted by the Roman Catholic Church too.

Therefore, through the Imperial propaganda the human component of the Roman Catholic Church has taken the place of Christ as well as the position occupied by the Virgin Mary, our true Mother.

Out the window goes Jesus Christ, out the window goes His Most Holy Mother - and man, controlling the Roman Catholic Church, is then enthroned.

In a masterfully subtle way, and without lying, the Dominus Iesus document implies to mankind that to be saved one must go through the Roman Catholic Church. Thus, whomsoever controls the Church, controls the salvation of mankind.

What a lie! A lie like that of the Donation of Constantine whereby he allegedly donated the Roman Empire to the Pope. A lie of such magnitude that the Roman Catholic Church had no other option than to acknowledge the lie during the 19th Century.


EPILOGUE  I

For the additional comfort of the Faithful, let us test the concept that it is only through Rome that Salvation can be attained which is heavily promoted by the Administration of the Roman Catholic Church.

 If that were the case, given the state of the world today due to the failed Evangelization effort of the Roman Catholic Church - the majority of its past Administrators would be either in hell or in Purgatory until the End of Time. Why? The Parable of the Talents [Matthew 25: 14-30], which ends with the following verse: "And the unprofitable servant cast ye out into the exterior darkness. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth." illustrates the reason quite well.

Therefore, Rome should be very happy that there were other avenues through which souls could attain salvation through Jesus Christ, otherwise, they would compose the single largest group of souls residing in hell.


EPILOGUE  II

As if all of the above were not enough to show how ridiculous is the Roman Church's stance about their exclusive claim to Salvation - now echoed by the latest claimant of the Papacy - Cardinal Bergoglio, aka Francis - let us see what Jesus has to say about it though this exchange with John:

Master, we saw a certain man casting out devils in thy name, and we forbade him, because he followeth not with us. And Jesus said to him: Forbid him not; for he that is not against you, is for you. [Luke 9: 49-50]

Shame on them! This is how stupid the Roman Catholic Church Administrators think the faithful are. Nonetheless....

....The Stage is now set.


EPILOGUE  III

THE  ACT  BEING PLAYED....

The False Prophet [the Anti Christ (7)] was enthroned - and now, out of the limelight - to make the final arrangements for the...

THE FINAL ACT.....

The entrance of False Christ (8).

WHAT IS THE FAITHFUL TO DO BESIDES PRAYING ?

The Faithful may do "this" and "this".

INTRODUCTION
 

In the First Part [1] of this document we explained the Theology which confirmed the reality that there is Salvation outside the Roman Catholic Church. To do so we used the same document that Ratzinger's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith originally published, Dominus Iesus.

Ratzinger's "proof" was quickly dismantled and we can see the L'Osservatore Romano [2] admitting that there is indeed Salvation outside the Roman Catholic Church.

Now we have the second non-Pope after John Paul II, the Argentinean Jorge Bergoglio, once again trying to pass as a Divine Truth the lie that there is only Salvation from within the Roman Catholic Church  [3][4][5].

In Part III of this document [6] we are going to quote directly from the Roman Catholic Church Catechism and in an unassailable manner dismantle their claim about said requirement once and for all.


PURPOSE

The purpose of this document is only one - To Glorify God!

BACKGROUND and DETAILS

Since the nefarious advent of Bergoglio to the Vatican, his Opus Dei powered Public Relations machinery [7] has transformed him into the "Darling of Humanity" - after all, even to questions asked regarding crucial moral issues, Bergoglio keeps repeating: "Who am I to judge."

Of course we know his whole "Papacy" is no more than a charade designed to draw as many souls as possible to error, thus to great suffering for those who are accounted amongst The Elect [8].

Remember - a soul predestined to Paradise cannot be lost [9]. However, through induced error such soul may experience great suffering on Earth and in Purgatory.

Seeing the populist attraction Bergoglio was exercising on all - non practicing Catholics, non Catholic Christians, atheists, agnostics, non Christian, New Agers, etc. - he was in effect increasing the count of souls who he will eventually lead to grave error - by their acceptance of the falsified  Second Coming of Christ [10].

So we had recourse to God pleading for the minimization of the suffering of The Elect in the face of the surging Rock Star popularity of Bergoglio.

God heard our prayers and responded via Bergoglio's Catechesis during the General Audience of June 25, 2014. In said Catechesis, which the reader may be able to read in Italian from the original Vatican page [3], in English from a Vatican Radio publication [4] and from a local US site [5], Bergoglio tipped his hand as follows:
[quotes from the Vatican Radio publication]
[ highlights by The M+G+R Foundation]

.... it is impossible to be a Christian "by oneself"; that belonging to the Church means being formed by members who have in their own turn received the faith – that is to say – to be part of a living tradition; that the Church – the community of faith – is the essential and necessary mediator of grace, including the grace of knowledge of and relationship with the Lord.

"There are those who believe you can have a personal, direct, immediate relationship with Jesus Christ outside of the communion and the mediation of the Church," said Pope Francis. "These are," he went on to say, "dangerous and harmful temptations." It was a theme to which he returned in the English-language summary that was read out after his main catechesis in Italian. "Our relationship with Christ is personal but not private; it is born of, and enriched by, the communion of the Church."

The Holy Father went on to say, "Our shared pilgrimage is not always easy: at times we encounter human weakness, limitations and even scandal in the life of the Church." Nevertheless, he continued, "God has called us to know him and to love him precisely by loving our brothers and sisters, by persevering in the fellowship of the Church and by seeking in all things to grow in faith and holiness as members of the one body of Christ."

In just a few words Bergoglio has caused those undecided-about-him Catholics, non practicing Catholics, non Catholic Christians, atheists, agnostics, non Christian, New Agers, etc. to run... and run fast away from the Roman  Catholic Church. He has confirmed, to one and all, that all of his entreats are just lies designed to draw as many people into the Roman Catholic Church and, unbeknownst to them, to the grave errors that said institution is about to spring upon humanity.


CONCLUSION

How could we not be overjoyed? Even if we had ten million followers in a Twitter account (an account which we do not have), we could not have proven to the world the truth about Bergoglio.

God did it for us, using Bergoglio himself.

Do you now understand what we mean when we say that: Even satan must serve God?

Part III




A REMINDER

As you read the following lines keep in mind that we consider: (a) the Catholic Faith the faith with most revealed truths - thus the most effective faith to establish a solid link with God; (b) and there was a real, valid and necessary Petrine Ministry which used to be fulfilled by the Bishop of Rome.



INTRODUCTION


In the First Part [1] of this document we explained the Theology which confirmed the reality that there is Salvation outside the Roman Catholic Church. To do so we used the same document that Ratzinger's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith originally published, Dominus Iesus.

In the Second Part [2] we dismantled the efforts of  the second non-Pope after John Paul II, the Argentinean Jorge Bergoglio, who was, once again, trying to pass as a Divine Truth the lie that there is only Salvation from within the Roman Catholic Church  [3][4][5].

In Part III of this document we are going to quote directly from the Roman Catholic Church Catechism and in an unassailable manner dismantle their claim about said requirement once and for all.


PURPOSE

The overall purpose of this three-part document is to ensure that the fewest number of Christians - mostly Catholic - do not fall in the death trap of adoring the False Christ who will be sprung upon the unsuspecting humanity right before the true Second Coming of Christ.

DETAILS

Quoting from the appropriate section [6] of the official Catechism of the Roman Catholic Church...

845... "Outside the Church there is no salvation"

846 How are we to understand this affirmation, often repeated by the Church Fathers? Re-formulated positively, it means that all salvation comes from Christ the Head through the Church which is his Body:

Basing itself on Scripture and Tradition, the Council teaches that the Church, a pilgrim now on earth, is necessary for salvation: the one Christ is the mediator and the way of salvation; he is present to us in his body which is the Church. He himself explicitly asserted the necessity of faith and Baptism, and thereby affirmed at the same time the necessity of the Church which men enter through Baptism as through a door. Hence they could not be saved who, knowing that the Catholic Church was founded as necessary by God through Christ, would refuse either to enter it or to remain in it.

They insist in confusing the faithful with the proverbial "smoke and mirrors" as they present the Body of Christ exclusively as the Roman Catholic Church. The Body of Christ is composed by all who strive to live and uphold the teachings of our Lord Jesus Christ - it does not matter what group he/she belongs to. Otherwise we would be going against a fundamental teaching of Jesus Christ:

Master, we saw a certain man casting out devils in thy name, and we forbade him, because he followeth not with us. And Jesus said to him: Forbid him not; for he that is not against you, is for you. [Luke 9: 49-50]

Any claim of exclusivity goes against the crystal clear instructions of Jesus Christ - and that, using the term frequently used by the Roman Catholic Church Administration, is heresy!

But that is not all. If one is to believe that there is no Salvation outside the Roman Catholic Church then, the members of the following Christian Churches - which appear in the Holy Scriptures - were not saved.

Jerusalem
Antioch
Corinth
Ephesus
Laodicea
Thessalonia
Smyrna
Pergamus
Thyatira
Sardis
etc., etc. Just to mention a few

A consideration which is utterly ridiculous!

Now they try, with the use of more of the proverbial "smoke and mirrors", to confuse the issue further:

831... Each particular Church is "catholic"

832 "The Church of Christ is really present in all legitimately organized local groups of the faithful, which, in so far as they are united to their pastors, are also quite appropriately called Churches in the New Testament.... In them the faithful are gathered together through the preaching of the Gospel of Christ, and the mystery of the Lord's Supper is celebrated.... In these communities, though they may often be small and poor, or existing in the diaspora, Christ is present, through whose power and influence the One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church is constituted."

833 The phrase "particular church," which is the diocese (or eparchy), refers to a community of the Christian faithful in communion of faith and sacraments with their bishop ordained in apostolic succession. These particular Churches "are constituted after the model of the universal Church; it is in these and formed out of them that the one and unique Catholic Church exists."

As you may see, their point is that unless a group of individuals, who are striving to live by word and deed the Word of God, is not under the authoritative boot of a bishop ordained in apostolic succession, that group will not be saved.

Perhaps they have forgotten that many of the churches in the area between the time of the Crucifixion of Jesus and the destruction of the Temple of Jerusalem were established by Paul who was not a member of the original twelve. As a matter of fact, Paul was "ordained" by Jesus via a direct supernatural intervention while using Ananias - a disciple, but not one of the Twelve - for the imposition of hands upon Paul. [Acts 9:1-20]

May those who have eyes, See and those who have ears, Hear!


CONCLUSION

We close the third part of this trilogy of documents by, once again, reminding all of the crystal clear position of our Lord Jesus Christ - the True, and only, Head of the Mystical Body of Christ:

Master, we saw a certain man casting out devils in thy name, and we forbade him, because he followeth not with us. And Jesus said to him: Forbid him not; for he that is not against you, is for you. [Luke 9: 49-50]

Which is confirmed and expanded by Mark:

Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, who followeth not us, and we forbade him. But Jesus said: Do not forbid him. For there is no man that doth a miracle in my name, and can soon speak ill of me. For he that is not against you, is for you. For whosoever shall give you to drink a cup of water in my name, because you belong to Christ: amen I say to you, he shall not lose his reward. [Mark 9:37-40]

miguel de Portugal directs now to the Temple Masters of our time - the Administrators of the Roman Catholic Church -  in the Holy Name of God,  the same words Jesus used when addressing the Temple Masters of His time:

Woe to you scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites; because you go round about the sea and the land to make one proselyte; and when he is made, you make him the child of hell twofold more than yourselves. [Matthew 23:15]


EPILOGUE

Never forget that....

....as I have been with Moses, so will I be with thee: I will not leave thee, nor forsake thee. [Josue 1:5]

and

Who then shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation? or distress? or famine? or nakedness? or danger? or persecution? or the sword?

As it is written: For thy sake we are put to death all the day long. We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. But in all these things we overcome, because of him that hath loved us.

 For I am sure that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor might, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. [Romans 8:34-39]

In the Fourth Part we are going back to the Holy Scriptures to bring to an end our demonstration that there IS Salvation outside the Roman Catholic Church.

We will not explain this matter any further less those who are to be entrapped by the False Christ  ".... at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them." [Matthew 13:15]

 

INTRODUCTION

We received a letter from a reader which brought up a point regarding this matter which we felt needed to be clarified. This concluding document is, in essence, our response to Mr. TK.


DETAILS

The Letter

Regarding your post of July 1, 2014 [3] - There IS Salvation Outside the Roman Catholic Church Regardless of what the Catechism of the Roman Catholic Church claims....
 
I truly hope and pray that every soul may go to heaven.  I know it is totally up to God but, how do you reconcile John 6, in particular, and not recognize it as the means for eternal salvation:

53 Jesus replied to them: In all truth I tell you, if you do not eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you have no life in you.

54 Anyone who does eat my flesh and drink my blood has eternal life, and I shall raise that person up on the last day.

I think you would help more souls if you would state and clarify this truth.  I think that is what the Catholic Church teaches.  Where else can one go to receive Him as He said (Eastern Orthodox included)?
 

Our Response

We thank you for this opportunity to address this global issue for the last time, being so the Will of God.

Of the Seven Sacraments it is the Holy Communion which provides supernatural nourishment to the soul when the bread and wine have been properly transubstantiated into the Body and Blood of Christ. Although it sounds as cannibalism it is not and it was never intended to be understood as that. Through the Grace of God, I actually know what happens to the bread and wine at the Consecration so, to me, the fact that it provides unequaled supernatural nourishment to the soul is an absolute reality and not because someone told me.

With that said, let us ask ourselves the following questions:

(a) How did the repented thief manage to be in the Kingdom with Jesus "this day"?

[39] And one of those robbers who were hanged, blasphemed him, saying: If thou be Christ, save thyself and us. [40] But the other answering, rebuked him, saying: Neither dost thou fear God, seeing thou art condemned under the same condemnation?

[41] And we indeed justly, for we receive the due reward of our deeds; but this man hath done no evil. [42] And he said to Jesus: Lord, remember me when thou shalt come into thy kingdom. [43] And Jesus said to him: Amen I say to thee, this day thou shalt be with me in paradise. [Luke 23]

Obviously he did not fulfill what too many understand as an absolute requirement, as it seems to be spelled out in John 6: 53-54

(b) Why didn't Jesus tell His Apostles/Disciples to recruit the man who was "casting out devils in Thy Name" but "who followeth not us"?

[37] John answered him, saying: Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, who followeth not us, and we forbade him. [38] But Jesus said: Do not forbid him. For there is no man that doth a miracle in my name, and can soon speak ill of me. [39] For he that is not against you, is for you. [Mark 9]

After all, if they did not fulfill what too many understand as an absolute requirement, as it seems to be spelled out in John 6: 53-54, they would be lost forever.

(c) How did those who, in the very early stages of Christianity did not consume the properly transubstantiated bread and wine, enjoyed the promised Eternal Life?

After all, if they did not fulfill what too many understand as an absolute requirement, as it seems to be spelled out in John 6: 53-54, they would be lost forever.

(d) What about God's chosen ones - Abraham, David, Moses, John the Baptist? None of them consumed the Transubstantiated bread and wine. Did they miss the promised Eternal Life? Of course not!

They obviously did not fulfill what too many understand as an absolute requirement, as it seems to be spelled out in John 6: 53-54.

Last, but not least, what about those who have never heard of Jesus because of the monumentally failed Evangelization effort?

Let us use the official Catechism of the Roman Catholic Church (4) to answer that question.

"Outside the Church there is no salvation"

847 This affirmation is not aimed at those who, through no fault of their own, do not know Christ and his Church:

Those who, through no fault of their own, do not know the Gospel of Christ or his Church, but who nevertheless seek God with a sincere heart, and, moved by grace, try in their actions to do his will as they know it through the dictates of their conscience - those too may achieve eternal salvation.

848 "Although in ways known to himself God can lead those who, through no fault of their own, are ignorant of the Gospel, to that faith without which it is impossible to please him, the Church still has the obligation and also the sacred right to evangelize all men."

The Catechism is absolutely correct here. We can, in all humility, state so because through the Grace of God, and not because of his intellect, miguel de Portugal knows the way in which "God can lead those who, through no fault of their own, are ignorant of the Gospel, to that faith without which it is impossible to please him."

Given the above, it is obvious that the consumption of the Transubstantiated bread and wine is not an absolute requirement for the salvation of a soul but, as we do not tire of repeating, it is a tremendous help - probably the greatest help that a human could possibly have - in journeying through Time towards Eternity.

Back to what John wrote and look at it as it was originally intended.

53 Jesus replied to them: In all truth I tell you, if you do not eat the flesh of the Son of man and drink his blood, you have no life in you. 54 Anyone who does eat my flesh and drink my blood has eternal life, and I shall raise that person up on the last day.

Jesus is the Word of God made Flesh. If we consume - eat and drink - the Word of God, we will have Eternal Life.

We have warned the Faithful about the dangers of Biblical Literalism. (5) Let's face it, if we "go literal", precious little of the Catholic Faith would remain standing. For example, in the Last Passover Meal Jesus said:

....This is my body, which is given for you. Do this for a commemoration of me. [Luke 22:19]

Passover Meal takes place once a year and is conducted in accordance to the instructions God gave Moses and to which Jesus adhered to (Remember?  Do not think that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets. I am not come to destroy, but to fulfill. [Matthew 5:17]).

Now then, if we "go literal", the Mass should be offered only once a year, on the day of Passover the date of which is to be determined according to the parameters used by Jesus and not the Temple Masters. (6) In addition, the format would be exactly that which Jesus used.

In closing, we wish to remind one and all that, just as The sabbath was made for man, and not man for the sabbath. [Mark 2:27], organized religion was made for man, and not man for organized religion. Man was made for God! Period!


CONCLUSION

We will not explain this matter any further less those who are to be ensnared by the False Christ ".... at any time they should see with their eyes, and hear with their ears, and understand with their heart, and be converted, and I should heal them." [Matthew 13:15]
