Quote of the Day
"With the exception of formal hatred against God, which constitutes the  deadliest of all sins and of which the creature is rarely culpable -- unless he  be in Hell -- the gravest of all sins are those against faith. The reason is evident. Faith is the foundation of the supernatural order, and sin is sin insofar as it attacks this supernatural order at one or another point; hence that is the greatest sin which attacks this order at its very foundations...  Hence, heretical doctrines -- and works inspired by them -- constitute the greatest of all sins, with the exception of formal hatred of God, of which only the demons in Hell and the damned are capable. Liberalism, then, which is heresy, and all the works of Liberalisn, which are heretical works, are the  gravest sins known in the code of the Christian law."
 
(Fr. Felix Sarda y Salvany, Liberalism is a Sin, Rockford IL: TAN,  p. 19; emphasis in the original. This work, at the time of its  publication in 1899, was given the highest praise and endorsement by the Holy  Office.)

We at Biblical Foundations International believe that we cannot possibly possess the spiritual discernment to adequately assess the crisis of our times unless we are obedient to the requests of Our Lady of Fatima, and of so many popes and doctors of the Church, to devoutly pray the Rosary -- at the very least, five mysteries of the Rosary daily, and all fifteen mysteries, if you can.

In addition to whatever other intentions you mention, please pray specifically that God will show you the truth regarding the full extent of the current apostasy, and that He will give you the grace to conform to that truth, whatever sacrifice is entailed.

Gerry's "Whenever" Word Updated sporadically

Gerry speaks March 29 - April 5 in CA & AZ after 8-year absence

PLEASE NOTE REVISED ITINERARY: April 2 talk in Milpitas CA (San Jose area) regrettably CANCELLED due to only 4 pre-registrations!  

 

Dear Friends:

 

Yesterday (Friday, March 28), I left my home in Scranton, Pennsylvania and flew to Los Angeles to begin a one-last-time lecture tour of California and Arizona.

 

On this tour I'm delivering a brand-new talk entitled “As It Was in the Days of Noah: The Striking Parallels between the Cultural Collapse preceding the Primeval Flood and Our Own Turbulent Times.”

 

This afternoon, Saturday, March 29, I delivered this talk in Calabasas, a suburb of Los Angeles. After various meetings I'll have over the next several days with individuals here in southern California, and then in Nevada, I'll drive to Arizona to give several talks there (see below).

 

My talk’s title of course derives from Christ’s words recorded in Luke 17:26: “As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be in the days of the Son of Man,” i.e., of His return to earth in judgment.

 

I am very excited about this trip, for four reasons:

 

1) First, I’ve not spoken in Arizona for eight years now!

 

Those who’ve listened to my “Consistent vs. Counterfeit Catholicism” 6-CD set — and if you haven’t, it’s available from our online store, www.gerrymatatics.org/shop — know that I embarked on a final multi-year “megatour” in February 2006 because, after two decades of intense spiritual and intellectual wrestling with the mystery of the origins and true nature of the current Catholic crisis of our times, I felt God in His undeserved mercy had given me an understanding of the matter which moved me to promise Him that I would return one last time to every place I’d ever spoken in my previous 20-year career as a Catholic apologist, in order to share this interpretive key to making sense of the crisis.

Gerry Replies

Is Gerry Matatics a ''sedevacantist''?

Gerry Replies (slightly revised November 21, 2007):

I'm a Catholic, pure and simple (though hopefuly not too simple) -- and have been, ever since my conversion from Protestantism 21 years ago, by a miracle of God's grace. I love the Catholic Faith and wish only to profess it in all its purity and fullness. I love the Catholic Church and wish only and always to be a faithful member of Her, since She has repeatedly and solemnly defined as a dogma that there is no salvation outside of her.

Every Catholic -- however he or she might prefer to be positive in his presentation of the Faith -- must necessarily oppose and reject all those persons and things that are incompatible with Catholicism.

guest writers

A Commentary on Rome's Lifting of the SSPX "Excommunications" of 1988

[Note from Gerry Matatics: I do not necessarily agree with every opinion of this guest writer (a friend of mine) -- I do not share, for example, his certitude on the validity of the SSPX bishops' consecration (expressed in his closing sentence), nor do I agree with him on other matters not touched upon in his essay -- but his essay essentially says what I've been saying when asked what I think of the recent  developments between Rome and the SSPX, and he has kindly granted permission for his essay to be reproduced here "as is." I shall have my own essay on the SSPX posted on my website later this month.]

Our Lady of Guadalupe (feast day December 12)

The Story

"And the land was polluted with blood," by idolaters who sacrificed their sons and daughters to devils (Psalm 105:38). Such was Mexico when Hernando Cortes arrived there in 1519. Some ten million native Nahuatl Indians formed a vast confederation of tribes at this time. These tribes were dominated by the powerful Aztecs who, for all their intelligence, industry, and valor, were equally barbaric, enslaved by an extravagant system of idolatry which placated its numerous gods with gruesome orgies of human sacrifice and cannibalism. For centuries torrents of blood literally flowed from the temple pyramids, with as many as 20,000 humans being sacrificed in one day.

"Hurray for Gerry Matatics! I am excited about his coming to the truth about the traditional Catholic Church. [Having studied his analysis of the root cause of the current apostasy,] I am convinced that that is what has happened. And Gerry is right on target. He is to be commended for his bold stance in the face of error. My husband and I recently moved to East Texas to be involved and closer to the traditional Church. We would gladly support Gerry because we need more Catholics like him. I too am a convert from Protestantism and want to be very strong in defending the true Church. I would love to hear Gerry speak down here."

D. V., East Texas

LaSalette

Statue of Our Lady of La Salette, at the site of her (Church- approved) apparition on September 19, 1846, in the French Alps. On that occasion the Blessed Virgin announced, weeping, that "in the last days, Rome will lose the Faith and become the seat of the Antichrist... the Church will be in eclipse." Our apostolate is dedicated to Our Lady of La Salette and to spreading her much-opposed message.
