“Still it must be confessed that the number of the enemies of the cross of Christ has in these last days increased exceedingly, who are striving, by arts, entirely new and full of subtlety, to destroy the vital energy of the Church, and, if they can, to overthrow utterly Christ’s kingdom itself.” Saint Pope Pius X, Pasendi Domini Gregis
Mandeville, LA – Truth has never been assaulted so harshly as when “Catholics” make heresy popular by asserting it isn’t heresy. Enter Senator Tim Kaine, little Margaret Sanger’s running mate, a “pro-abortion Catholic” and thus one departed soul from the Presidency. Where is Senator Kaine’s Bishop to privately counsel him to retract, confess, make penance and amend his way!? The teaching on abortion is as clear as Evian water, and no, you don’t get to moderate it or conform it to your personal tastes:
“Therefore We base Our words on the first principles of a human and Christian doctrine of marriage when We are obliged once more to declare that the direct interruption of the generative process already begun and, above all, all direct abortion, even for therapeutic reasons, are to be absolutely excluded as lawful means of regulating the number of children. (14) Equally to be condemned, as the magisterium of the Church has affirmed on many occasions, is direct sterilization, whether of the man or of the woman, whether permanent or temporary.” Pope Paul VI, Humanæ Vitæ
Many Catholics and our Protestant brethren think that the Church’s teaching on abortion and contraception is a modern invention, constructed to respond to Roe v Wade or cobbled together as part of a greedy bureaucratic fundraising tactic i.e. help the Church oppose abortion and teach the moral dangers of contraception by sending your donation of $100 in the envelope provided. This is of course a by-product of the heretical Revolutions begun by Henry VIII and Luther that has produced today’s sporting activity of public Catholic bigotry and the denial of the Church’s singular teaching authority. Here’s some inconvenient truth on the matter. The Doctors and Fathers of the Church have been repeating Christ’s teaching on abortion and contraception since St Peter and St Paul. Paul not only affirms the teaching on who is the giver of life but who is the giver of the Church’s teaching on life.
“For I give you to understand, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not according to man.  For neither did I receive it of man, nor did I learn it; but by the revelation of Jesus Christ….But when it pleased him [God], who separated me from my mother’ s womb, and called me by his grace.” Galatians 1, 11-15.
This teaching on life and abortion is rich and is repeated consistently throughout the Christian ages as we see in the St Jerome in the 4th century (among hundreds of others available here).
“I cannot bring myself to speak of the many virgins who daily fall and are lost to the bosom of the Church, their mother . . . Some go so far as to take potions, that they may insure barrenness, and thus murder human beings almost before their conception. Some, when they find themselves with child through their sin, use drugs to procure abortion, and when, as often happens, they die with their offspring, they enter the lower world laden with the guilt not only of adultery against Christ but also of suicide and child murder” ST. JEROME, Letters 22:13 [A.D. 396]).
To the charge that Mr Kaine is alone responsible for the custody of his soul and for his own “beliefs” I counter that, that is a copout without Magisterial Authority. We ALL have a duty to inform him of his error and offer fraternal correction but the clergy has the Sacred DUTY to do so as Pope Pius X reminded the Christian world in Pascendi Domini Gregis.
“To the Patriarchs, Primates, Archbishops, Bishops
and other Local Ordinaries in Peace
and Communion with the Apostolic See.
Venerable Brethren, Health and Apostolic Benediction.
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. There has never been a time when this watchfulness of the supreme pastor was not necessary to the Catholic body; for, owing to the efforts of the enemy of the human race, there have never been lacking “men speaking perverse things” (Acts xx. 30), “vain talkers and seducers” (Tit. i. 10), “erring and driving into error” (2 Tim. iii. 13). Still it must be confessed that the number of the enemies of the cross of Christ has in these last days increased exceedingly, who are striving, by arts, entirely new and full of subtlety, to destroy the vital energy of the Church, and, if they can, to overthrow utterly Christ’s kingdom itself. Wherefore We may no longer be silent, lest We should seem to fail in Our most sacred duty, and lest the kindness that, in the hope of wiser counsels, We have hitherto shown them, should be attributed to forgetfulness of Our office.”
It is up to Kaine’s bishop and his local prelate to condemn his lethal and heretical statements, failure to do so is, as the Holy Father states above is “[their] most sacred duty.” Pray they have the Graces to do so, my brothers. There is still a chance that Mrs. Clinton will be our next President and the destruction of millions of yet to be born souls hangs in the balance. Our sacred duty as laity is to pray and correct our ways and lead by example. Let’s get started.
