MINUTE OF FAITH: La fe católica se enfrenta a un desafío que nunca antes había tenido (Michael Voris)

Duración 7:47 minutos


It's is a sad thing in today's Church that with the obvious need to evangelize mostly fallen away or lukewarm Catholics, the first thing that needs to be done is to deconstruct all the lies and half-truths and sentimental Catholicism that has been injected into the minds of so many. Unlike centuries and ages before when the Church was evangelizing barbarians and pagans and so forth, those people did not have misconceptions about Catholicism and the Catholic faith. In fact, they knew nothing except their false gods or no gods. They were essentially blank slates when it came to Catholicism and the Truth. But today, the authentic faith faces a challenge it has never had to before at least on this scale and that is to actually tear down all the false notions about the Faith that so many people have.

So, evangelization has in effect become not just a positive activity of telling people what they do not know but also a negative activity of subtracting from their minds and poorly formed intellects what they incorrectly know or understand. And you cannot look to the leadership in the Church for this. So much of the problem has derived from them — errant dissident heretical clergy, gay, careerists, misguided, cowardly, poorly formed themselves, you name it. The teachers themselves in many cases have become suspect or in some cases actually the enemy of the Faith.

So, all these various New Evangelization efforts are essentially worthless because they don't touch on the salient point that in the people's minds they are talking to are wild misconceptions about morality and mortality — about objective truth and natural law and so forth — all of this owing again to a clergy that has gone off the rails and abandoned its sacred duty to teach the truths of Our Blessed Lord. They have become disfigured social justice warriors and spiritual monsters — unable or unwilling to spread the truth of the Faith because in many many cases they simply don't believe the truth of the Faith. They have lost their supernatural faith and have therefore become dangerous.

Fortunately, Holy Mother Church is bigger than these men. They may occupy some of the important offices, temporarily, but they don't get to erase the history of the doctors and the saints and the mystics and the fathers. Those preachings and teachings and writings survive, and this is where Church Militant comes in. Given the horrible state of affairs in the Church, and they are horrible because they deprive people of the fullness of the Truth, we are introducing a little effort to help people gain access to the sacred truths and simply bypass the madness spewing from these spiritually insane clerics.

If you'll notice on our homepage — — we have a new drop-down tab that we are simply calling Catholicism. When you click on that tab a list of various brief articles, arranged alphabetically, will appear that takes less than one minute to read, covering a huge variety of topics of the Catholic faith. We are beginning with 50 and will be adding a couple every day, looking to building it up to hundreds and hundreds.

Think of them as a little minute catechism or minute of faith — a little booster shot for you. We have deliberately kept them very short so that they can easily be digested. Of course, if you want to know more, there are all sorts of references to where you can find out more. And — bonus — we have also developed them in such a way that you can print them out, each one will be completely contained to just a single page, and you can give them to your friends and family and co-workers, buddies at school, whoever.

We did this specifically because we know people's attention spans these days are extremely short, and these take less than one minute to read. So, please begin immediately taking advantage of these little Catholic nuggets of the glories of the Faith.

Now, to this point, we are able to launch initiatives like this because of your support for our Premium programming. That's why we are asking you to sign up today for a Premium subscription. It's only $10 a month. With that $10, we are, of course, able to produce Premium shows, but we get the value added, you get the value added, of keeping us in existence so we can do other things, as well like the Catholicism tab.

Many of the Catholicism articles link to Premium shows, for example, which cover the topic in much greater detail because while these are good for starters, certainly, they do not and should not encompass all someone needs to know about a specific teaching. Your Premium membership allows us to do all this and more. In fact, without your Premium memberships, we can't exist.

We are, as you know, completely independent of the establishment Church, many of whom hate us and work to destroy us because we say what they won't and teach what they refuse. We have hundreds of hours of programming available on practically every topic imaginable in the Church. Many, many people have converted to the One True Faith because of these programs, while other Catholics have moved from lukewarm to on-fire for the Faith.

We like to say around the studio that we are great plagiarizers, and we are, this is not our teaching, it is the teaching of Holy Mother Church, the One True Faith, we just copy it, make videos about it and represent it but all glory and honor to our Heavenly Father and the Holy Trinity.

So, please consider becoming or renewing your Premium membership, again, just $10 a month. Our Premium subscribers provide the lifeline for us to be able to challenge the heterodoxy so openly manifest in our parishes today, in addition to allowing us to bring you the unvarnished glory of the authentic faith.

So please, just click on the link and sign up today. And thank you in
advance for all your generosity, prayers and support.

What a sad thing to experience the dying process without God!

This Vortex episode was originally written and shot on January 10th. Russ passed away January 11th.

Duración 9:25 minutos


Many of you may know through various social media that my father's health is declining, and he's been in and out of the hospital and rehab for about two months now. It's tough, as many of you may know, watching a parent decline and go through the end-of-life struggles of being anxious and worried for their children after they have died — of the constant hospitalizations and tests and poking and prodding and drugs and the whole scene.

To sit and be present to this, day after day, is quite draining, and it got me to thinking, what do those who don't have faith do? How do they get through this kind of thing — those who are dying, as well as those who are watching those who are dying? What a sad thing, indeed, to experience the dying process without God. And not just a sentimental vision of God which so many Catholics these days suffer from but a truthful, full, square-on understanding of just how momentous the approaching moment is.

As of this recording, the doctors can't say that my father's death is imminent, but it is clear that his time is drawing to an end, whether that's weeks or maybe months. Which means as it does and will for every one of us that he will close his eyes on this life forever and be escorted into the presence of the Living God, Who created him to be with Him for all eternity. And he will undergo the judgment of his life — every single thought, word, deed, action that he ever did or should have done and failed to do. For this reason, very close friends and I are at his bedside praying with him, mostly the Rosary but also specific prayers for the dying.

He has received the anointing of the sick, numerous times, the apostolic blessing, absolution — all that his Mother Church can provide. Everything in his life has prepared him for this final moment, and his eternal destiny hangs in the balance. Much of the medications he is on to battle pneumonia and settle his breathing have resulted in his being less aware, but before he started declining he was extremely aware of the final truth of his life and daily prepared himself to stand before his God. Acutely aware of the truth of eternal life and death that would soon be his lot, he became even more prayerful and even worried when he was too tired from aging to be able to say all his prayers.

This is how a Catholic should die — with a complete understanding of the enormous and final fate that lies before him and spiritually prepared to go before his God, Who is both loving Father, yes, but also the just judge. My father is one of a dying generation when it comes to this sort of understanding of the Faith. He never bought into the happy-clappy idiocy of the contemporary Church, which never ever teaches about this moment except draping it in a syrupy sentimentality that obscures the reality.

The sentimental Catholicism so prevalent these days deprives people of the truth of their ends. It paints a picture that everyone just waltzes into Heaven. It is constantly preaching the non-Catholic doctrine that we have a reasonable hope that all men are saved — a most insidious novelty. This is why my father was always so incredibly supportive of our work here at Church Militant and St. Michael's Media — why he would always encourage me to call out the phonies and dissent and error spewing from so many pulpits and clerics — to give them no rest or quarter for their errant mumblings. He recognized that those errors were from the diabolical as all spiritual error is.

My dad was on the exact same wavelength as other great Catholic men like Charlie Rice who was happy to host two seasons of one of our Premium programs, Right Reason or Fr. Pablo Straub who appears at the beginning of every episode of The One True Faith and also hosted his own show with us, Fr. Pablo Says. The instant each of these men met here at our studios, there was an immediate and lasting connection, the binding tie being of the sublime truth of the Catholic faith and its ultimate end, the salvation of their souls. It was such a quiet joy for me to sit back and watch the three of them interact and just be Catholic together.

They knew life, and they fully grasped its purpose. Each of them is and was all about Our Blessed Lord, and it was so evident. Three older gentlemen, two of whom have since gone to Our Lord and the third more than likely soon to go, each completely absorbed in their love of the God Whom they could not see but carried so closely within themselves. And there is a reason each of them was so supportive of what we do here because they saw in our work the truth of the Faith — the One True Faith established by Jesus Christ, the Son of God, outside of which there is no salvation.

Each of these men, my dad, Charlie and Fr. Pablo, were happy to host some Premium shows, here, at Church Militant. They wanted a demonstration of their love for Our Lord and His Holy Catholic Church to last beyond their own personal times here on earth. It's why we are inviting you today to sign up to be a Premium member or if you were in the past and your membership lapsed to renew your membership. It's just $10 a month and with that you get access to the tremendous insights of three men completely in love with Our Lord and His Church.

Two, as we said, have gone to Him, and my dad is soon to embrace the single reality for which he was created and known by God before all time. Sentimental Catholicism is a joke, it's a fraud, and it's a deception of the enemy. It plays on your emotions with the intent of obscuring the truth from your intellects. God commanded us to love Him with every aspect of our beings, including our minds, which are the only part of us capable of apprehending the Truth and Jesus Christ is the Truth.

Satan wants us thinking on the way to our deathbeds that everything is OK. Our sins are no big deal. Going to Mass isn't really important, that basically, I'm a good person because I'm not a mass murderer. But then once we actually arrive at the last days of our life on our deathbeds, it's a whole different scene. Now, the ancient enemy, the serpent, goes on the attack, accusing us, for he is the accuser and launching his last and most violent attacks against us, seeking to cause us to despair. And if you have spent a life in willful blissful ignorance, sinning and thinking it's no big deal because God never damns anyone, it will be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to overcome the demonic assaults that await you as they await all of us.

How we live is how we die. Did we live in accord and preparation to meet our God or did we marginalize it all and blow it off, presuming on the mercy of God when we did nothing to merit it? The purpose of this life is onefold — to die in a state of grace.

Everything we do here at Church Militant is geared to help you and us achieve that one end. It's why we are always asking you to sign up for a Premium membership because every single show we produce is painted on that canvas — man, in what state will you be when you go before your God? Nothing and we do mean absolutely nothing is more important than the answer to that question.

Thank you in advance for your support and Premium membership. And please keep my father in your prayers.
