Saint Paul the Apostle of the Gentiles - a "rigid Doctor of the Law," the Law of Jesus Christ!

Today is the Third Sunday after Epiphany and in the modernist rite, the Third Sunday in Ordinary Time. Truly, could they not have kept the true and proper name for this period?

St. Paul is damning today in his denouncement of our modernist churchmen and he does this in the texts of the both liturgies.

First, let us look at the Reading I, II & III of Matins, which I have combined here to one.

It is from his Letter to the Galatians 1 - 14, wherein he blames the Galatians themselves to be imposed upon by new teachers.  

Paul, an apostle, not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead, And all the brethren who are with me, to the churches of Galatia. Grace be to you, and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ, Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present wicked world, according to the will of God and our Father: To whom is glory for ever and ever. Amen.
I wonder that you are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ, unto another gospel. Which is not another, only there are some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach a gospel to you besides that which we have preached to you, let him be anathema. As we said before, so now I say again: If any one preach to you a gospel, besides that which you have received, let him be anathema. For do I now persuade men, or God? Or do I seek to please men? If I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.
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. For you have heard of my conversation in time past in the Jews' religion: how that, beyond measure, I persecuted the church of God, and wasted it. And I made progress in the Jews' religion above many of my equals in my own nation, being more abundantly zealous for the traditions of my fathers.   

Saint Paul makes it quite clear that there can be no other Gospel, no other teachings from what he and the Apostles have taught. When the Lord Jesus said, “adultery” is a sin, it is. Those who tried to trick him were the “doctors of the law.” Yet today, we see the Pope himself condemning Catholics as “doctors of the law” for following what Jesus taught and expects of us to believe and preach. St. Paul warns us of those who would dare to change doctrine and preach “another Gospel.” He goes as far as to declare them “anathema.” This Jewish Apostle to the Gentiles even goes on to the “Jews’ religion” and how that it is clearly another religion, not the religion of Christ and therefore, one which can now only conclude is no longer a true religion since Christ is “all in all,” as he tells us in Colossians 3:11.

If that is not enough to convince one that our churchmen have gone astray, let us now look at what most Catholics at Mass today heard in the Second Reading from 1 Corinthians 1:10-13,17 (I have included 14-16) in italics.

Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no schisms among you; but that you be perfect in the same mind, and in the same judgment.

For it hath been signified unto me, my brethren, of you, by them that are of the house of Chloe, that there are contentions among you. Now this I say, that every one of you saith: I indeed am of Paul; and I am of Apollo; and I am of Cephas; and I of Christ. Is Christ divided? Was Paul then crucified for you? or were you baptized in the name of Paul? I give God thanks, that I baptized none of you but Crispus and Caius; Lest any should say that you were baptized in my name. I give God thanks, that I baptized none of you but Crispus and Caius; Lest any should say that you were baptized in my name. And I baptized also the household of Stephanus; besides, I know not whether I baptized any other. 
For Christ sent me not to baptize, but to preach the gospel: not in wisdom of speech, lest the cross of Christ should be made void.

Catholic people, brothers and sisters, wake up!

We are being deceived by leaders in the Church, from Friars Minor who march in parades with anarchists (more on that tomorrow) to bishops on the island where Paul landed. From dioceses in remote Columbia where priests are persecuted for the truth to Rome itself, where the Supreme Pontiff denigrates a good man of patriotic love with that of Adoph Hitler. These men, from Daniel Horan to Jorge Bergoglio have failed to preach the Gospel. They have burnt incense before idols, they preach a gospel “according to men.”

We must pray for wisdom. We must open up the Divine Office, or at least the Liturgy of the Hours to read what the Church really prays, what those great Fathers have written to us. We must get to Confession and to Mass. Find a traditional Latin Mass, make it your life. If you cannot, then find the most faithful priest and reverent new rite Mass that you can. Leave liturgical abuse, leave the lies that these people proffer and get back to the Truth!

The future does not look bright. I have a young relative, a lovely girl from a neo-Catholic family, who, at 14, was encouraged to march in Washington, with the anarchists, the racists, the demons who see abortion as a sacrament, the LGBT adherents, the BLM radicals. It was posted on Facebook as if it were a good thing, and congratulations were received all around. This is our Catholic future, radicalized young people, encouraged to think of a legitimately elected president as questionable, someone to fear, and encouraged to believe that marching and protesting can somehow alter that fact. What are these radicalized young people to think now?
And the pope, sits there and pronounces he will wait until he (Donald Trump) does something before he "judges him". He leads the demonic resistance, this Bergolio! Catholics are confused, utterly confused, and the longer this goes on, the worse it will get.

The Apostasy began at the very top & it is there is must be annihilated. The supporters of the four Cardinals must come out & reveal themselves. If the formal correction has been made but not answered we should urge the calling of an Imperfect Council to unequivocally declare that the faithful should not follow this pope. The need to convene a conclave to elect a new, valid & licit pope should get underway immediately. The seriousness of the situation doesn't allow for sitting back & waiting months for a response to the Dubia which PF has already made abundantly clear he is not going to answer. The true successors of the First Apostles must protect Apostolic Succession at all costs.

Kathleen, I was just looking at reports of this march in Washington, realizing that it is too late to stop the progress of the degeneracy. Those who consider themselves as marching "on the right side of history" are completely brainwashed. Trump supporters (and Trump himself) fear any accusation of not being completely on the side of sodomites and gender-confused. Being on their side means supporting the radical agenda of sodomy celebration and gender de-construction from birth on.

Since the attack on reason, family and God has sodomy and gender ideology as its most important weapon, and since the vast majority of youth compares anyone disagreeing with the agenda with Hitler, we have no reason to hope that the devil's progress will be slowed down significantly.

They have won. None dares to speak against sodomy, even in Trump's camp.

The key to understanding the devil's lies which have taken hold over good people is knowing the purpose of sex. If it is for pleasure, then supporters of paedophilia and bestiality (among many other mental/spiritual illnesses) are as entitled to it as are sodomites. If it something one can not refrain from engaging in (some bishops make this claim), for they were "born this way" and they have a right to "sexual health", then it is inhumane to attempt to stop them.

This is how the Church let humanity down, when it began praising sex and sexualization of children, called sexual education.

The key to human progress toward God is a proper understanding of who we are. We are not on earth to inexperience maximum pleasure. Pursuit of pleasure degrades us, destroys our character, blinds us to truth.

There are very few people today who understand it. The current pope does not. He supports sex-ed and said that the Church talks too much about abortion.

It is too late.

Great post, Vox. On the Byzantine Catholic calendar, today's Epistle was 1 Timothy 1: 15-17.

Also, Galatians 1: 11-19 is the Epistle for the 20th Sunday after Pentecost. 1 Corinthians 1: 10-18 is the Epistle for the 8th Sunday after Pentecost, which stresses the unity of the Church (the Gospel is Matthew 14: 14-22 - the miracle of the loaves and fishes).
