The words of Paul himself condemn today's Shepherds

If the Apostle Paul were alive today and preaching in the Catholic Church, he would be called out as an anti-Semite, as a Pharisee and as rigid, pre-Vatican II fundamentalist devoid of memory, dialogue and encounter.

In the Office of Matins for the Second Sunday after Easter, we read a goodly amount from the Book of Acts.

If Judaism is still alive, if there is a dual covenant, where are their Prophets today? Where are the Jewish sages and mystics calling for the imminent arrival of the real Messiah, as opposed to some old rabbi on a billboard? Where is their temple?

Paul, was asked to give "exhortations" by the leading Jews of Antioch. He did not fail.

Judaism is dead and some day the Lord will hold to account those hirelings who allowed his original Chosen People to die in the darkness devoid of the True Light which enlighteneth the world.

Woe to those who are no more than hirelings.

Lesson from the Acts of the Apostles
Acts 13:13-33
13 Now when Paul and they that were with him had sailed from Paphos, they came to Perge in Pamphylia. And John departing from them, returned to Jerusalem.
14 But they passing through Perge, came to Antioch in Pisidia: and entering into the synagogue on the sabbath day, they sat down.
15 And after the reading of the law and the prophets, the rulers of the synagogue sent to them, saying: Ye men, brethren, if you have any word of exhortation to make to the people, speak.
16 Then Paul rising up, and with his hand bespeaking silence, said: Ye men of Israel, and you that fear God, give ear.
17 The God of the people of Israel chose our fathers, and exalted the people when they were sojourners in the land of Egypt, and with an high arm brought them out from thence,
18 And for the space of forty years endured their manners in the desert.
19 And destroying seven nations in the land of Chanaan, divided their land among them, by lot,
20 As it were, after four hundred and fifty years: and after these things, he gave unto them judges, until Samuel the prophet.
21 And after that they desired a king: and God gave them Saul the son of Cis, a man of the tribe of Benjamin, forty years.
22 And when he had removed him, he raised them up David to be king: to whom giving testimony, he said: I have found David, the son of Jesse, a man according to my own heart, who shall do all my wills.
23 Of this man's seed God according to his promise, hath raised up to Israel a Saviour, Jesus:
24 John first preaching, before his coming, the baptism of penance to all the people of Israel.
25 And when John was fulfilling his course, he said: I am not he, whom you think me to be: but behold, there cometh one after me, whose shoes of his feet I am not worthy to loose.
26 Men, brethren, children of the stock of Abraham, and whosoever among you fear God, to you the word of this salvation is sent.
27 For they that inhabited Jerusalem, and the rulers thereof, not knowing him, nor the voices of the prophets, which are read every sabbath, judging him have fulfilled them.
28 And finding no cause of death in him, they desired of Pilate, that they might kill him.
29 And when they had fulfilled all things that were written of him, taking him down from the tree, they laid him in a sepulchre.
30 But God raised him up from the dead the third day:
31 Who was seen for many days, by them who came up with him from Galilee to Jerusalem, who to this present are his witnesses to the people.
32 And we declare unto you, that the promise which was made to our fathers,
33 This same God hath fulfilled to our children, raising up Jesus, as in the second psalm also is written: Thou art my Son, this day have I begotten thee.
V. But thou, O Lord, have mercy upon us.
R. Thanks be to God.

R. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, hath prevailed to open the Book, and to loose the seven seals thereof.
* Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.
V. Worthy is the Lamb That was slain to receive power, and riches, in wisdom, and strength, and honour, and glory, and blessing.
R. Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, * and to the Holy Ghost.

R. Alleluia, alleluia, alleluia.

Amen brother!
Christians - the Messiah came. Jesus.
Jews - the Messiah has not come.

If one asks a truly orthodox practicing Jew you will be told we have had no prophets since
Malachi. They certainly even though the Jewish doctors of the time recognize John the Baptist as a prophet. He was a memeber of the House of Aaron as was his father and therefore a priest. They certainly did not see Christ as a prophet. Their efforts to introduce mysticism into their faith caused them to start a new movement called the Kabbalah.

It's all part and parcel of Ecumania. Just as Liberal crazies the world over expect Multiculturalism to work so long as they shove highly incompatible people together and preach to them the wonders of liberal 'tolerance', the Churchmen have been doing likewise.

I found this commentary by Dan Dicks on the Pope's ill-advised decision to incompetently attack Libertarianism, and I recommend watching the whole thing, but I particularly want to point to around the 6:30-7:00 minute mark where after highlighting the globalist plan for a One World Religion to suit their New World Order, he plays a clip of Cardinals ourgith ignoring Pope Benedict XVI in a highly insulting and telling way that I found rather chilling, and considering that Dan pointed this out years ago, it's kinda telling when the alt secular media managed to be rightly suspicious of Pope Francis while many Catholics were blindsided by him.

There is no dual covenant. St. Paul speaks of the Jews who reject Christ as branches that have been cut off from the good olive tree. They may once again become part of the good olive tree, provided that they accept Christ and believe in Him. "And they also, if they abide not still in unbelief, shall be grafted in: for God is able to graft them in again." (Rom 11:23)

A dual covenant makes a mockery of St Paul's words.

But the children of the kingdom will be cast out into the exterior darkness: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Matt 8:12 No?

I made an earlier comment here with a link to a Youtube video.

Turns out the portion I was discussing is untrue. The Cardinals were not refusing to shake Benedict's hand. Rather Benedict was introducing them and inviting them to shake the other man's hand.
