Pope Francis clears John Paul II for sainthood

Pope John XX
Pope John XXIII
Pope John Paul the 11
Pope John Paul II

VATICAN CITY (AP)- Pope Francis on Friday cleared two of the 20th century’s most influential popes to become saints, approving a miracle needed to canonize Pope John Paul II and waiving Vatican rules to honor Pope John XXIII.

It was a remarkable show of papal authority and confirmed Francis’ willingness to bend church tradition when it comes to things he cares deeply about. Both popes are also closely identified with the Second Vatican Council, the 1962-65 meetings that brought the Catholic Church into modern times, an indication that Francis clearly wants to make a statement about the council’s role in shaping the church today.

    When people do not know their Bible or have only a surface knowledge of the scriptures they are easily deceived by false belief systems

    The Roman Catholic Church teaches that Christ appointed Peter to be His successor – the Vicar of Christ – on earth. To prove this they use one verse of scripture: Matthew 16:18. It reads “And I say unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church:…” This verse says nothing about Peter having a successor. It does not even imply that there would be a SECOND Vicar of Christ AFTER Peter who would be pope number two! There is nothing here about a papacy.

    But let’s examine this verse. Jesus said “…thou are Peter… The word Peter in the Greek language was “petros” which means a stone. Jesus was saying to Peter, “…I say unto thee, Thou art a stone,…” But then He said, “Upon this rock I will build my church,…” The Greek word for rock in this verse is “petra” which means a massive rock!

    Jesus was saying to Peter, “You are a stone (a little rock). And upon this massive rock I will build my church.” What was this massive rock? It was the rock of Peter’s confession in verse 16, “…Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God.” The church would be built upon Christ Himself! St. Paul said, “For other foundation can no man lay than that which is laid, which is Jesus Christ.”

    There is absolutely nothing in the New Testament that would even hint that Peter had a higher position in the church than the other apostles. The most that he claimed for himself was that he was an apostle. He introduced himself as “Peter an apostle of Jesus Christ, …” (1

      REV. DONALD HILL (Continued …

      Peter 1:1) then he said “The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder,…”(1 Peter 5:1) On one occasion Paul rebuked Peter because he had acted out of order. Paul wrote “But when Peter was come to Antioch, I withstood him to the face, because he was to be blamed.” (Galatians 2:11) It was James – not Peter – who officiated at the first church council in Jerusalem in Acts 15. In 57 or 58 A.D. Paul wrote his famous Epistle to the Romans to the church in the city of Rome. In Ch. 16 he sends personal greetings to about 25 members in the church mentioning them by name. But Peter is not mentioned even though the Roman Catholic Church claims Peter was in Rome at that time ruling as the bishop, and Vicar of Christ.

      Many find it strange that neither Christ in the Gospels nor the apostles in the Epistles left any instructions as to how Peter’s successor was to be chosen. They was nothing written in the New Testament telling the church how they were to appoint or elect popes. Through the centuries different methods have been used and obviously some bad choices were made.

      The papacy is an old institution but it does not go back to Peter. Rome being the capital of the Roman Empire and the church there being large the bishop in Rome gradually gained a lot of influence. The wicked empire Phocas tried to to confer the title of Universal Bishop upon Gregory 1 to spite the Bishop of Constantinople for excommunicating him in 304 A.D. but Gregory 1 refused this honor. However, in 607 A.D. Boniface 3 accepted the title Universal Bishop and became the first pope with full papal honors.

      The idea of making saints is another practice that has no Biblical basis. The word “saint” means one who is sanctified or one who is made holy. In the New Testament all God’s people are saints. Those who have received Jesus Christ as their Savior are saints. That is why some of the New Testament Epistles (letters) are addressed to
      the “saints” in that particular city. See for example 1 Corinthians 1:1, 2 Corinthians 1:1, Ephesians 1:1, and Philippians 1:1, etc.

      The Roman Catholic Church today is not the church Christ founded on the Day of Pentecost (Acts 2) in the First century A.D. You only have to read the New Testament to know this. What they have now is like a quilt. It is a patch work. Through the centuries one new doctrine after another, one new dogma after another, one new practice after another, has been added, and added, and added. There have always been separated congregations that tried to follow the simplicity of the New Testament. At times a number of these congregations with the same basic beliefs have decided to co-operate with each other and do things together instead of independently. These are called denominations. After the Protestant Reformation in 1517 several large denominations came into existence. Some became the “national” churches of their particular countries. Some of these unfortunately adopted certain Catholic beliefs and customs and were not a true return to the purity of New Testament worship. Since then other denominations have appeared that seem to follow the scriptures more faithfully.

        Sorry! It was the year 604 A.D. that Gregory 1 refused the title Universal Bishop.

    DNO, did you have the day off today, Tuesday due to the imminent storm or is your staff off today? Is your computer system down? No need for me to elaborate. I am being discreet and private. You will know what I mean.

    Here are some facts, the cause of divisions, lack of love, disunity and lack of peace. They are caused by those who formed their religions who indoctrinated their followers and who now do likewise as they did. Take good note of who caused them.

    How Old Is Your Church?

    If YOU ARE a Lutheran, your religion was founded by Martin Luther, an ex-monk of the Catholic Church in the year 1517.
    IF YOU belong to the Church of England, your religion was founded by King Henry VIII in the year 1534 because the Pope would not grant him a divorce with the right to re-marry. His wife was still alive. He imprisoned her because she did not conceive a male heir. He married anyway while his wife was imprisoned. She later died.
    IF YOU ARE a Presbyterian, your religion was founded by John Knox in Scotland in the year 1560.
    IF YOU ARE a Protestant Episcopalian, your religion was an offshoot of the Church of England founded by Samuel Seabury in the American colonies in the 17th century.
    IF YOU ARE A Congregationalist, your religion was originated by Robert Brown in Holland in 1582.
    IF YOU ARE A Methodist, your religion was launched by John and Charles Wesley in England in 1744.
    IF YOU ARE a Baptist, you owe the tenets of your religion to John Smyth, who launched it in Amsterdam in 1605.
    IF YOU ARE OF THE Dutch Reformed church, you recognize Michaelis Jones as founder, because he originated your religion in New York in 1628.
    IF YOU ARE a Christian Scientist, you look to 1879 as the year in which your religion was born and to Mrs. Mary Baker Eddy as its founder.
    IF YOU belong to one of the religious organizations known as “Church of the Nazarene”, “Pentecostal Gospel”, “Holiness Church”, “Pilgrim Holiness Church”, “Jehovah’s Witness”, your religion is one of the hundreds of new sects founded by men within the past fifty years.
    IF YOU ARE Roman Catholic, you know that your religion was founded in the year 33 by Our Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of God, and it is still the same Church! Thanks be to God!

    The amount of religions in the world, is a disgrace for people who claim to love God. Some love! Holy Scriptures: “If you do not love others whom you can see, how can you love God whom you cannot see?” Our Lord said, “Your hearts are hard.” Woe to you! May He rebuke you!

      Nice propaganda, don’t you know there is a difference between propaganda and truth.

        Your way is not the way and the right way. Your belief is not the true belief. You do not know the difference between propaganda and truth, you atheist. Others can write garbage and what is not true and you believe them and applaud them.
        I have stated facts and you do not believe. I am not the one who devised it. They are facts of what happened, what divisions that those people have caused in the world which displeased God and continue to displease him as others follow them in their footsteps.
        Too bad for you that you cannot face the facts which is reality. The truth always hurt. The day is coming when you will be faced with the fact and your refusal to believe the facts, to your regret.

      There is nothing from the First Century A.D. in either the New Testament or in secular history that shows any “church” or religious organization existed during that time even similar to the Roman Catholic Church of today.

      What is called the Roman Catholic Church developed gradually through the centuries with doctrine after doctrine, dogma after dogma, and practice after practice being added. Pick out any particular doctrine, dogma, or practice. If it is not found in the New Testament we can give you from history the approximate date it was invented and added to the Catholic Church.

      Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. Evangelist.

        Neither Christ nor His apostles left instructions how the church was to make somebody a saint.
        The New Testament does not contain any such information. In the earliest centuries of church history there was a period of time when sainting somebody was more or less a local matter. If a sufficient number of nearby clergy decided a particular person was worthy of sainthood it was conferred upon the individual. Gradually the bishops gained more say, and finally it was the pope who had the last word.

        Now saint making goes through various stages of recognition. The pope has a prescribed ceremony and a ritual he recites and BINGO :!: But where did this ritual come from :?: Certainly NOT from Christ, nor His apostles. It is NOT found in the Scriptures :!:

        Go to your New Testament. You will find where the word *saints* is used it applies to the true believers and includes all the disciples of Christ. For example look at –

        Romans 1:7,
        1 Corinthians 1:2
        2 Corinthians…

    1 Cor.1:10:17 – Divisions in the Church – Groups and Slogans – I urge you, brothers, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree in what you say and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and in the same purpose. For it has been reported to me about you, my brothers, by Chloe’s people, that there are rivalries among you. I mean that each of you is saying, “I belong to Paul or I belong to Apollos, or I belong to Kephas, or “I belong to Christ.” ”Is Christ divided?” Was Paul crucified for you or were you baptized in the name of Paul? …For Christ did not send me to baptize but to preach the Gospel, and not with the wisdom of human eloquence, so that the cross of Christ might not be emptied of its meaning.

    The Catholic Church is not a denomination. It did not evolve from any religion. It was founded by Our Lord Jesus Christ.
    The Holy Bible was given to the Catholic Church. This means the Catholic Church was the custodian of the Holy Bible and still continues to be. Those who left the Catholic Church took a Bible with them when they decided to form their religion. The others who formed theirs after they did, took it from them. What a melee and a mess some members of humanity have caused.
    Thanks be to God, this is why I stand steadfast in my Catholic Faith and defend It! I know that I belong to The One True Church that Our Lord Jesus Christ founded. As I have always said, “He did not leave us this mass confusion and different churches. He left us One Church. It is The One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church. No other church is superior to It and can surpass It. Our Lord Jesus Christ ordained that His Church is the superior one. I reiterate that He established It.
    This is why we have Popes, the current one, as the Head of the Catholic Church. No other church was given that mandate and not even to form their individual churches. Satan is jealous of the Catholic Church. Satan has many followers who think that the little pocket of the church they belong to is the one true church. No way!
    This is what has happened in this era which obviously saddens Our Lord Jesus Christ. There are too many different religions. How many will make it to Heaven? You want to go to Heaven? To obtain eternal salvation? You must be unified! There are no divisions in Heaven. Those who caused divisions and who are divided will never obtain eternal salvation; not with that state of heart. Surely, if they say they know the bible, they should that.
    Do not take Our Lord Jesus Christ for granted. He cannot be deceived. One day, the enemies of the Catholic Church will be reminded of what I have been stating when the truth will be revealed to them.
    There is Only One Truth and it is the Truth of the Catholic Church. It has the full deposit of Faith as given to It by Our Lord Jesus Christ. Praise be to The Blessed Trinity.

      Oh my!

      Where does it say any of this in the Bible?

      There is not a single verse of scripture to support one of these statements. You are doing exactly what the Roman Catholic Church has done for centuries making it up as you go along!

      Obviously, God who created us knows that we are mortals and are imperfect even though while striving for perfection. Perfection is ongoing and will be until the day we die. Imperfect people are not saints. They first have to be perfected. Those who think that they can bash the Catholic Church and consider themselves saints are highly mistaken by no other than the noon-day devil. They really know nothing about God. Our Lord told us, “Be perfect as our heavenly Father is perfect.”
      Are they perfect? They have depicted the sin of imperfection which is a grievous/mortal sin against, “Love for God and for us who are Catholic members – The Catholic Church.”
      I believe all what the Holy Catholic Church believes and teaches. This is part of my (our) Creed. We are obligated to defend it against its enemies.
      In one of her messages, Our Lady, the Ever Blessed Virgin Mary said to the three children at Fatima, Portugal: “If the government would leave the Church alone there will be peace.”
      I contemplated on this and thought the same applies to those people who call themselves Christians. “If they would leave the Catholic Church alone, there will be peace in their land”, in their home and in their heart. Their hearts lack peace.
      I feel sorry for them that they possess such hearts for they should know that “God rewards the good and punishes the wicked” and they will not escape his wrath and just punishment in time. There are times they get it right here on earth as they age, if they live long enough. If they continue in this state until death, their lot will be in Satan’s cauldron of everlasting fire. They will never deceive me. I do know that no one obtains eternal life/salvation hating the Catholic Church, a Church which Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself established on earth to assist us to obtain eternal salvation. The enemies of the Catholic Church are many especially among Dominicans, those who reside in D/ca and those who reside abroad. They should know what goes around comes around. It applies to them and their attitude. Why then do they not practice love and kindness? This will be their funeral.
      God is with his Church. Our Lord Jesus Christ said: “…The Gates of Hell shall not prevail against It for He will be with It until the end of time.” Our Lord did not refer to those churches that were formed down through the ages. He was speaking to the Church He formed, namely, The One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church. It is called “Holy” because God, The Blessed Trinity, is the Head, the Leader of His Catholic Church. When we say “Church”, we mean The Catholic Church.

      St. Paul said, “Teach and remind people of these things.” The writings of St. Paul as inspired by the Holy Spirit should also teach us much on how to conduct ourselves and how to treat others, with love, dignity and respect.
      There is so much more I could say about what I have stated and more… There is a lot in Holy Scriptures which we could use to defend Our Catholic Church against its enemies who think they know Scripture. They know nothing.
      As the Prophet Simeon said: “…So that the hearts of many may be revealed.” This is what the hearts of the Catholic bashers, the enemies of this Church are revealing, their true, ungodly colors.
      The Great Apostasy spoken of is upon us, those who also leave the Catholic Church to join other churches. This was not a good and holy move on their part. They have renounced the Church Our Lord Jesus Christ, established and turned its enemies, to join man-made churches. So much could more could be stated about that.
      They are Catholic bashers. They have depicted the type of heart they possess. Whenever they hear and read about the Catholic Church, it eats them up; they are envious because they do not have those celebrations in their church and never will. All their bashings cannot change a thing. From my point of view, they are wasting their time and heaping burning coals on their head for their eternal judgment, condemnation, punishment and banishment.
      Our Lord Jesus Christ has taken note of them. His Holy Spirit, the Advocate that He said He will send to earth after his resurrection is in the world but He does not indwell in them. They suppress him because of their ungodliness. If the Holy Spirit indwelled in them, they would not make such comments. They lack godliness.
      They are not smart people. If they knew better, if they loved Our Lord and loved others as He has taught us, they would not expend their God-given time and exert their energy to bash the Catholic Church which has done them nothing. They lack love and respect. One of the ways we know godly people is by their love and respect for others and their religious beliefs and practice.
      You should know that Satan is at the root of this. He governs their heart. They speak, write of the Bible and quote from it, saying that they know it. Well, if they knew it they would not unleash the Jaws of Hell upon the Catholic Church because DNO posted the current news of the Popes’ canonization. Whenever DNO posts matters of the Catholic faith, it is as if the Gates and Jaws of Hell is unleashed by those Catholic bashers. It is nothing less than that.
      They are jealous. This is the envy of Satan which has lodged himself in them. They are not godly people. Their actions have spoken about them and what is imbedded in their hearts.
      If only these people would consider that God takes note of what they do and say, they would refrain from making such comments against the Catholic Church.
      I am a Catholic and a traditional one at that. Our traditions cannot be changed because we are living in a different era. These will always remain until the end of time as God has ordained. He is with His Church and is guiding and leading it, no matter what befalls it.
      The faithful Catholics who persevere to the end are “the remnants” spoken of in Holy Scriptures; not those who left the Catholic Church, those who formed their own churches and who have amassed followers from the Catholic Church to join them. Our Lord never spoke to those churches He never spoke about them because he did not establish them. What is more, they have separated themselves from His Church and caused divisions, disunity and lack of peace. This is a mark of ungodliness, disobedience and rebelliousness which He abhors for it is a sin, most of all against him and his Church.

    Ok so Justice and Truth, you seem to be running all around helter skelter trying to justify them popes.

    Quote for me where Paul states that I am the first pope and I am a catholic.

    Justice and Truth, you are blind and I am sorry about that. Each and every pope that you listed here has presided over an institution that practiced lies, deceit, corruption, theft, rape, murder, genocide, holaucost including the inquisitions, and you call these men saints?

    You must know nothing of the LORD Jesus Christ. He never told his saints to go beat, torture, drown, burn at the stake or in boiling oil, people who do not believe in him or people who read the bible for themselves. He never did.

    He never told his saints to go and burn to death anyone who attempted to translate the Bible from Latin to English. He never did.

    He never told his saints to charge people money so that they (the priests) can remove the souls of their departed love ones from purgatory. He never did.

    He never told his saints to lock Jews up in the ghetto in Italy for over 300 years and force them to wear a yellow star of David on their chests to identify them, years before the Nazis copied that idea. He never did.

    He never told his saints to swear that the pope is the living representative of GOD, or the vicar of Christ on earth or die. He never did.

    He never told the saints to worship my mother because she is the mother of GOD. He never did.

    He never told his saints to pick up sword and shield and smite all non-believers that you can find. He never did. Infact He told his saints that if you are smitten on one cheek turn the other.

    You do not know the LORD Jesus Christ nor his Father, or else you would not be so blind.

    If you truly were Justice and Truth, then you would be seeking truth and justice for the countless number of saints matyred by the catholic church and its succession of popes.

    You are trying to remove saint hood from the victims and establish it upon the heads of the perpetrators. You are blind my fellow sojourner, you are blind…

      You people keep harping on the devotions of the Catholic Church and say that we will go to Hell for practicing our faith. Are you mad or what? This is another one of your ungodly comments which originated from Satan, the enemy of God and of our souls.
      God, who established His Church, approved all Catholic devotions. These devotions were done through the inspiration of His Holy Spirit. Who are you and others, non-Catholics to say that our devotions are not godly? It shows your lack of godliness and spiritual enlightenment. You are speaking for the devil; not for God.
      If God did not approve them, He would have told his Church about it through the Mother of God, her messages including the visionaries and the Catholic Church would have ceased practicing them. You are the ones who are foolish and who will go to Hell. Not the Hierarchy of the Catholic Church and the laity for practicing their Catholic faith, as ordained by God Himself. If you want to know more, take it to the Lord in prayer.
      So much for you knowing what is contained in Holy Scripture. This is why I am emphasizing that you and the rest of the Catholic bashers and enemies know nothing. You are just blowing hot air.
      I do not have to justify anything. If you want to know anything more, do like the godly people, “Go to God in prayer and ask him to reveal it to you.” This is what those who are godly enlightened do.” God grants graces and enlightenment. If you do not possess it to assist you to comprehend what I stated then you lack them. Pray to God and if He sees that you deserve it, it will be granted to you.
      This is why I am a Catholic and continue to be. I know what I have and how it helps me in every aspect of my life, past and present.
      I thank God that no false indoctrinators could turn my head, tickle my ears and influence me to leave my Catholic Church.
      I am no fool and not gullible. I do not follow any fly by night little people who came from nowhere, not knowing who they are, whether they were in prison, stole from others and decided to go to Dominica to set up a church to further bilk gullible Dominicans and to gain status which they never had where they originated from. Learn from others. Pray to the Lord. Do not ask me any more questions for I have no further information to give you or anyone else. I have said enough. If you fail to see the truth of the Catholic Church, you lack godly spiritual common sense, knowledge and good judgment.
      I reiterate, once and for all that if you fail to know which Church is the One True Church, you will find out when you die. I am stating it loud and clear, no one/soul will be going to Heaven who belong in different churches and who bash the Catholic Church, who, while on earth hated the Catholic Church. You should know that St. Paul said: “Nothing defiled will enter the Kingdom of Heaven.” Those who bash the Catholic Church and are its enemies as I have noted on this DNO Website, are defiled. Their hearts, minds, thoughts and souls are defiled. Godly people should know that. Mark my words.
      I am extremely passionate about my Catholic Faith and Church and its devotions which are primarily devotions to the Most Sacred Heart of Our Lord Jesus Christ. I am not a closet, dormant Catholic; very much a Christian Catholic. Thanks be to God! May He be praised!

      I only read your first few words. So you are setting rules for the Catholic Church and are confident that I am wrong in making those statements and standing up for my Faith, Church and beliefs? It is not your Church! It is My Church as a member of it! I have every right to defend it and to speak up and if possible to inform others about it. Why do you not comprehend that? Are you without common sense and knowledge?
      What do you know? Leave the Catholic Church alone and mind your own business. You are not a member. Stay out of the Catholic Church and its business. Leave Catholicism to Catholics! You are an outsider. Outsiders have no place in the Catholic Church and Its business and devotions. They have no right to comment about the Catholic Church and its devotions and to criticize it. You are out of place. We are not interested.
      God has ordained that there will be a Pope who is the Head, Leader of the Catholic Church on earth. Every institution has a head/leader. Dominica has a head/leader. He is the Prime Minister of Dominica. Does your church not have a head/leader? Therefore smarten up!
      Little do you know. You are the one who is blind, blind as a bat that you cannot see the truth, fail to see it right before your very own eyes. Your eyes are veiled. Let me inform you, the church you are attending was not founded by Our Lord Jesus Christ. It is not blest by Our Lord Jesus Christ because it contributed to lack of love and divisions and disunity. People can bless a building or bless anyone. If God does not see that they deserve the blessing, it will not be granted. It takes a godly spiritually enlightened person to know that. As I write, the more I write, the Lord grants me visions, knowledge and enlightenment.
      The only Church Our Lord blest on earth is The Catholic Church for He established It and It alone. If you knew what you were talking about and what you asked, you would not ask it in the first place. However, you asked for it.
      St. Paul was never a Pope. He did not make himself a Pope. The first Pope was St. Peter. Remember what Our Lord said to Peter, “Thou art Peter and upon this Rock I will build my Church…?
      When Our Lord made spoke to Peter in front of the other disciples, He was referring to One Church, the One He founded, Namely, the Catholic Church. He was not referring to those other pockets of churches which were formed years after the Catholic Church was established. Our Lord knew this would happen, this disobedience and rebelliousness among men who would form their own church and which He does not approve of for reasons as I have stated.
      You are just blowing hot air and wasting your time. God has spoken. He has instituted His Church and Popes and no one can change that with their warped mind and thoughts and petty and godless talk.
      This is why some of you left the Catholic Church. You did not make it your business to know your faith and become knowledgeable in it. Your ungodly lifestyle may have contributed to it which caused you to lack God’s blessing and graces.
      The first person who approached you and falsely indoctrinated you against the Catholic Church, its beliefs, teachings and devotions and to leave it, you followed them. Others in turn caused other Catholics to leave the Church. Those indoctrinators could have been the devil in disguise, masquerading in sheep’s clothing which Our Lord spoke of. Woe to them! Today, you people profess to know more than the Catholic Church. You do not, not as the Catholic Church and not over it! You want me to go on TV and proclaim it or have my own TV Station? I would love that!
      I speak and write in no uncertain terms, not watering-down the truth and afraid to stand up for it. Our Lord said: “Be Not Afraid for I am with you!”
      Some of you are so presumptuous. Do you think when Our Lord spoke that He was not speaking to Catholics and He does not love Catholics? That he was referring to the thousands of churches in the world and not the Catholic Church? Is anyone so stupid to even consider that churches that were recently formed, after the Catholic Church would take precedence over It?
      Furthermore, the world Media has shown the status of the Catholic Church in the world by their overall broadcasts of whatever is of significance which occurs in the Church. This should tell its bashers and enemies a lot about it and that It is The One and Only Church which Our Lord Jesus Christ established on earth. If you people do not know that you are spiritually sick. This is what your false indoctrinators made you believe and wrongfully to deceive you.
      I know people who left the Catholic Church and who tried to indoctrinate me and to tell me otherwise. I responded according to my Catholic faith, beliefs and teachings. I paid them no mind. I am not weak of spirit to leave my Catholic Church and to follow that type of crowd. God guides me and not man and not people like you.

    I would like to ask a question to the proud Catholic bloggers. If the pope is infallible how is it that St. Christopher who is the patron saint of travelers, used to be prayed to for protection up until 1969 when he was officially struck off the list of saints by papal decree after it was confirmed that he was fictitious? (Ibid, vol 3, p417)

    Let’s hope staunch Catholics like “Justice” gives us a logical answer.

      Some people genuinely ask questions. They want to learn something. Others ask inquisitively and wickedly as a means of criticism and denunciation. God knows your heart and that your intent is malicious – not godly. I know this too.
      St. Christopher will always be a Saint in the hearts and minds of Catholics. While on earth he performed good works. The present Pope or the past few did not make St. Christopher a saint. This was done in the ancient days. In those days, sainthood was done differently as today. Today, the first step is beatification and the second one is canonization which will only be performed if miracles occurred and based on their holiness, sacrificial life in God. You have heard of them; no need for me to elaborate.
      If you listen to Catholic TV and Radio you could get ample information. They are there for the seeking and asking. As Our Lord said, “Ask and it will be given unto you. Seek and you will find. Knock and the door will be opened.” This door, is the door to his Heart in recognition, love and worship. May you seek with a godly heart and ask in likewise manner so that you will receive exactly what you ask for.
      Go to http://www.ewtn.com. There is a section for questions and answers. There are well-versed priests in Catholic matters who could provide you with a comprehensive response.
      In addition, you will be amazed how many Catholic Radio Stations there are in the U.S. All of them have Websites, too numerous to mention including some members of the laity who have their own Websites where you could ask them and gather Catholic information.
      Have you considered asking the Priest at the Catholic Dominica Radio Station or Father Superior or Monsignor at the Catholic Roseau Diocese?

      A few years ago I taped this from the US Catholic Radio and typed it; have given/sent copies to others. It is worth knowing. Since you asked I remembered that I had this copy and searched for it. It is interesting. Happy to forward it for your reading. This should answer your question. Please make a note of it.

      Great words from St. Christopher by Bert … Author of Voices of the Saints:

      St. Christopher, a third century saint whose Feast Day we celebrate on July 25th.
      Let us clear up that old misconception about him being demoted. He certainly was not. No! He was only removed from the liturgical calendar because all we know about him is that he was martyred in a Turkish town back in the mid-third century but nothing else. But because we know so little about him in terms of his real facts, he was taken off the calendar but not demoted. We sill honor him; we still pray to him. So those St. Christopher medals are still O.K. Sure!
      He is a wonderful model for us because of the way he honored not only the Lord but the stature Sign of The Cross. He was a giant of a man, they say, and he went about searching, to live for the greatest king in the world. He first served a Christian King. When he saw the king make the Sign of the Cross when the devil was encountered, he said, “Why, do you do that?” The King replied: “Because of the devil.” He said: “Well, you are not the greatest King if the devil is more powerful than you so I am going to follow the devil.”
      He went to follow the devil but when the devil bumped into a Cross on the roadway, here is what he said in the legend: As they went along the road, they came upon a Cross and when the devil saw it, he was afraid and fled. Christopher marveled at this and asked the devil what made him run. He said: “There was a man called Christ who was hanging on a Cross and when I see his Sign I am terrified and flee from it.” Christopher said, “Well, then, He is greater than you so I will serve you no more and I will go to find Christ.”
      And he found Christ when he was carrying people across the river. And when he met Christ, he decided that he will follow Him and became the Christ-bearer, Christopher which is what his last name means.
      To me he is an example of the power of the Sign of the Cross in our contemporary life.
      We should make The Sign of the Cross with great fervor and with great intention because of the power and the authority it has over the devil and everything evil. That’s his model for us. So when we make the Sign of the Cross we should be proud, not to make those little wimpy Sign of the Cross but be strong in our own faith.

      Please note: “It was said that he was martyred in Turkey”, no doubt, for the faith, in the Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ. We are aware that Turkey is predominantly a Muslim country. This should tell us who murdered him.
      This persecution of the Catholic Church has been ongoing. I have read much about it in books, one of them is entitled, “The Last Secret” and other Catholic literature. Today we are hearing about it through the general Media.

      You cannot see, hear or do not have that thought because you do not possess a godly heart, mind and live a godly life. You are not even seeking therefore nothing will be revealed to you as other bashers and enemies of the Catholic Church. When you depend on your own ungodly understanding, you will remain blind and deaf to godliness. You are too deaf and blind.
      Holy Scriptures taught us about those who are veiled, their hearts and minds, due to their darkness, the one they are living in. Furthermore, when you are bent on bashing, lambasting and criticism of the Catholic Church, its practices as well as devotions, you have denied yourself godly enlightenment. God will hide himself from you. This is why you will never comprehend the Catholic Church and its practices. You can cease wondering and asking because you do not ask in a godly spirit.

      Who saints? Only when people die they will know how well they have served God and if they will be saints. I doubt that you are even near a living saint. Judge yourself. One of the conditions for being a saint is not to harass and persecute the Catholic Church. It is not an act of love; you do not have love in your heart. Some of you think you know everything. We do not harass and persecute you even though you left the Catholic Church. You do not know more than the Catholic Church and its genuine practicing members. God knows better than you. Do you think I am joking? You will find out in time. You are in the wrong church. Save your soul!

    The Roman Catholics have their own doctrines .if they believe that marriage is between a man and woman then how come the priest nuns and popes don’t get marry? As far as I see that seems to be misleading.further more the catholic church is a misleading religion .they got everything turn upside down and some of the Sunday churches ain’t much better because they are following right in the footsteps of the pope by worship on Sundays because the popes will admit that they were the ones to change the Sabbath from Saturday to Sunday so all the Sunday worshipers who are bashing Roman Catholics need to stop
    because as I said before you all are under the same catholic law worshipping on Sunday so that makes you one of them

    @Frabo July 7, 2013 Your questions have provoke me to answer so I have done that is 3 sections, to avoid a long input–here is my first answer

    (1) You asked: Are “Saints” only from the Catholic Church?

    The answer to that question is no! And every human being who has passed away in the physical, whether that person went to his or her grave with a soul that was alive in Jesus Christ or not, that person remains a sleeping “spirit” person—no one can make that person a saint—for her or she is asleep in his or her grave, until the resurrection of Jesus Christ, for the final judgment—which has to be the judgment of “Eternal Life” in Paradise or the “second death”, which is complete or final separation from the God of Spirit in Love, Truth, and Holiness, for eternity, because God is not the God of the dead, says Jesus Christ.

    • July 8, 2013

      @Frabo June 07 2013

      (2) You asked: How and when does an individual becomes a “Saint?”

      The answer is: A saint can be identified in a person who has accepted Life in Jesus Christ and is living that Life, knowing that he or she is a disciple of Jesus Christ—and his or her physical body now represents the temple of God, by the indwelling of His Holy Spirit, which was meant to be so from the beginning—but Adam chose disobedience which brought him spiritual death and the separation of God’s Likeness, the Life of Love that was in him.

      That person who portrays the Life of a saint is “born again” the “Birth” of Life in Love; it is that Life that makes him or her a New Creature, the Light of Jesus Christ stands as a banner to the world through him or her.

      He or she is aware of a “personal” or “intimate” Love relationship with the God of Spirit and Truth. God gives that person a “spiritual family”—his or her church—which is the founding place to grow in the Spirit through worship and fellowship with that spiritual family in the God’s presence—that kind of practice is known as communion with the God in Spirit and in Truth.

      The walk, of a person who is a saint, before God Almighty, is the walk of Love; this walk is the constant habit of living in the Spirit by faith and not by the sole control of the human senses especially of see and feel—which basically provokes the flesh to heed to temptation which is the “urge of the mind” to satisfy the passion and lust in the physical body.

      Holy Spirit, who has connected to that person through conscience, is that person’s sole guidance and teacher, as Jesus puts his or her mind into renewal for the sake of Spiritual transformation. This form of transformation is that which is the final condition of body and soul of that person, all saints for that matter; it is the perfection and completeness acceptable to the God of Spirit in Love, Truth and Holiness or Righteousness.

      By his or her faith, discernment is the key by which that person knows the seed which has entered the grounds of his or her mind; and the prompting that Holy Spirit gives that him or her, which are the words of faith, by which he or she will rebuke the input of unrighteousness from the mind, before its seed goes into production and demonstration.

      As human beings, we are called to know the Life in Love, which is of God Almighty. When we know this Life, we begin to know God, and so He teaches us how to live a Holy Life—those of us who are practicing or walking this Life in Love are known as “saints” before our God of Love.

      • July 8, 2013

        @Frabo June 07, 2013

        (3) You said: In the Catholic Church you become a Saint when you can no long have any earthly participation. Isn’t that interesting?
        That is not factual and most certainly, not interesting! God caused Life in the Earth as He flourished it for our survival, enjoyment, or leisure.

        All of the features of the Earth is part of Life in us, as human beings—some of us have a body that even reacts to the change of the whether, I know that about my own body, but that is a good thing!

        We cannot exist without participation of the things of the Earth—but I am sure that you are talking about “worldliness” which is the “practice” or “attitude and conducts” of people who has not chosen to serve God, who created them for that purpose.

        For the world in question is “people”—not the buildings and landscape—that is why we learn that “God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him would not perish but have Eternal Life”. Jesus did not die to give Life to the mountains around us—for example.

        And so the apostle John tells us: Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. In that, all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life—is not of the Father but is of the world. And the world is passing away, and the lust of it; but he who does the will of God abides forever 1st John 2: 15-17

      You are no expert. When are you going to learn that you cannot speak on behalf of the Catholic Church and for the Catholic Church? You left the Catholic Church and joined another church which was formed a few years ago 2,000 years after the Catholic Church was established by Our Lord Jesus Christ. How can you know anything and about the Catholic Church? How can you be more of an expert of Catholicism than the Catholic Church?
      You people will never get it. Wait when you die and you will get it and see it and realize your error. May it not be too late for you. Woman, save your soul. Return to the Catholic Church which Our Lord Jesus Christ established on earth, that they may be one. Surely, godly sensibly people who are spiritually enlightened should know that.

    One of the reasons the world is in turmoil is because of false religious teachings. If only the religious preachers had not deviated from the true written word of God, people may live, and enjoy a better way of life.

    The Roman Catholic Church (religion) for that matter, since Church and religion are to different things; one must recognized that the Roman Catholic organization has caused more damage in the world than any dictator, or tyrant could have caused, they supported slavery, and every other manna of evil on earth, including apathy in recent years in South Africa.

    Some of the people they ordained Saints in the past are men known to have committed murder. The fact is the Roman Catholic living so called popes. and I am deliberate in not capitalizing the first letter in pope, some readers may know why, however, he/she who do not know ; don’t worry about it, but these clowns have no Spiritual, or Biblical authority to declare another human a saint.

    The important thing to note is that God said in his word “the dead has no power.” So, declaring a dead man a saint, means nothing, because saints are actually living people, who are believers in the word of God and in his son Jesus Christ, even in his name! We read in the book of Revelation Chapter 13:7-8 “And it was given unto him to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreads, and tongues, and nations, (8) And all that dwell upon the earth shall worship him whose names are not written in the book of life of the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world.”

    Note: the key here is (kindreads: meaning families, tongues means languages; I do not have to define nations, so this is an indication Saints, are indeed living people on this earth!

    Again we read in Matthew 27:52: And the graves were opened; and many bodies of the saints which slept arose. Well some of us who study the word of God knows that when the Bible speak of one who slept is a person who is dead, however these people were Saints before their death, and arose simply means they will be resurrected.

    Finally, in Psalm 50:5; we read “Gather my saints together unto me; those that have made a covenant with me by sacrifice. I know there was a time when living people made sacrifice to God, however, a dead person cannot sacrifice to neither God, nor man, so here exposes the nonsense of these roman Catholic so called popes! Saints are living people on this earth!

        Now, now, unless you know to what church I belong how can you make the statement ” I wish to remind you that your church was founded by a man who was disobedient.”

        You see how stupid you are?

        Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha, I have to laugh, because it seems you have lost a screw somewhere along the way. For your information, as a child I was indoctrinated into the Roman Catholic Church by my grandmother; I removed myself from that mess, at the age of about sixteen years old, by then I discovered the false teaching of the Roman Catholic Church.

        Again I say the Roman Catholic religion teaches the philosophy of man, that of the so called pope, which has nothing to do with the word of God.

        Let this eat your heart out: I reiterate that no man on earth, has any authority to declare anybody a Saint. Saints of God are followers, and worshipers of God Jehovah, and his son Jesus Christ who died on the cross for my sins.

        I am a living Saint of God, in the flesh; I am not a dead saint!

        Rosary, and idols of stones which the followers of the pope kneels and pray too cannot help anyone who prays to them. It is write in the Bible ” In vain they worship me” meaning he does not hear such people when they pray.

        If you are Roman Catholic, the rituals you follow, and indulge into will lead you to no other destination, after this life but straight into the pit of hell fire!

        I do not envy all the nonsense you have written in defense of the Rome, and the despicable specimens at the apex distorting the truth of the Word of God.

        You ask me to lay off your Roman Catholic Church, I will do better than that, ask your pope, or one of his priest to pray for my destruction, the end of life, pray to kill me see if it works.

        When I was a kid, they use to take people money in Wesley to say some Mass on people called Lebearah to kill them.

        To this day nobody die, their lebearah has yet to kill somebody, but such are the nonsense they teach.

        Hahahaahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahah!

        You Justice & Truth, has just exposed yourself to be a bigger fool than I thought you are. You called me a liar, that proves you are mad, I quoted scriptures to support my argument, get a Bible even the Roman Catholic Bible every scripture I quoted shall be fount in the Roman Catholic Bible, I wish you would identify the lie I told.

      Since you made the remark that the world is in turmoil because of false religious teachings,i would like to ask what is the true religious teaching.Is it what you believe and quote from the bible, what a fallacy.The problem for the turmoil is not about religious teaching but Religion period.Take away religion and all these absurdities would cease to exist.

      • July 10, 2013

        Absolutely not Gary, what I believe does not matter, it all boils down to the Word of God as it is written in the Bible, there are no two ways about it! You either accept it or reject it.

        You will never be able to understand (comprehend) the word of God, if you try to understand it from an intellectual or educational point of view, your first duty is to accept Jesus Christ as your personal savior, recognized that he shed his blood on the cross for your sins.

        Then humble your self, and do as he instructed in his word, which is ” Study to show yourself approved unto him rightly dividing the word of truth”. this is not verbatim, but any preacher you ask about that part of scriptures will direct you where to find it in the bible, time does not permit me to direct you to it.

        The bottom lie is this the true religious teachings are as it is written in the Bible, as thus said the Lord. Any other doctrine is false, and you have to be very careful with the way some so called preachers interprets the word to you.

        Ultimately it all boils down to you and God almighty!

    Justice and Truth says:

    (1) “Our Lord Jesus Christ is the First Head of the Catholic Church. He is not on earth”

    (2) Therefore, He gave us a Leader of His Church to listen to and to obey. In other words, the Pope guides the Church, the flock of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

    The two statements above is enough to prove that Justice and Truth is either not a “spokesman” for her Church–the Roman Catholic Church–or if she is, she is doing a good job of exposing the “ignorance” and lack of intimate “knowledge” of God Almighty who is Spirit in Love, Truth, and Holiness–He making Himself the Living God by His Person of Love–Jesus Christ.

    And if Jesus is not in the world, neither is or God of Spirit, no wonder Roman Catholics believe they must bow to human beings like themselves and all the other statues in their surrounding.

    First of all, according to Jesus Himself, “God is Spirit and those who worship Him should worship Him in Spirit and Truth” John 4: 24

    Holy Spirit, who is the “Supernatural Influence” of the “Father Jehovah, who lives in the Son, His name is Jesus–He is the only Leader and only Guide for the purpose of worshiping and everything else which is about Life in us, for God is our Life and the length of our days on earth–there is no other.

    It was God’s plan that man would glorify His Authority of Love, Truth, and Righteousness, from the very beginning, otherwise He would nave continued to allow man to exist in this world, after the fall of Adam.

    And so, God’s plan is to have man reconciled to Him with the completeness and perfection of Life, that is satisfaction to Him, for that was the state of Adam, before he fell.

    This completeness and perfection is happening in man, who by faith has accepted the Blood of Jesus, and living the Life of faith. Hope is the driver of his journey towards Salvation and Reconciliation to the God of Spirit, in Love and Truth.

    Love is the Life we live through the wisdom, understanding, and insights of Holy Spirit as He puts on display the attitude and conducts of Jesus Christ through us, who will trust and obey. Please continue reading below:

    • July 8, 2013

      Number 2 of 3

      Holy Spirit begins His work of Love and Life in us and through us, when He connects to us, but according to God’s Will, through our conscience. His Laws is what reforms or directs our mind to give the glory to God Almighty, Him alone–this glory does not belong to man–regardless of his status in this world–for God has said: No flesh shall glory in His presence. 1st Corinthians 1: 20

      The acceptance of Justice and Truth, who declares that “Jesus is not on earth” is a clear example that she has no sense of Spirituality–that is surely the truth of the Roman Catholic followers–because their work is founded on religion, which are the manmade rules and regulations of human wisdom and philosophy.

      Man is called to maintain a personal or intimate relationship with God Almighty by faith in the Son, Jesus Christ, for that is the only way he will give birth to “Life”. Jesus cautioned us through the man Nicodemus, that “unless one is born again of Water and the Spirit he cannot see the Kingdom of God” John 3: 1-21

      The apostle Paul, whose “theme” in the Bible is “faith”, Paul tells us at Ephesians 2:8-9 “For by Grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast”.

      And so, if “Justice and Truth”, along with the rest of the sheep of Roman Catholic, believe that Jesus is not earth, it is clear that those people do not know anything about the Spirit.

      This means that Holy Spirit is absent from their conscience, their mind continues in its carnal condition, and their soul is dead because there is no God in their heart–why should the rest of us bother with those people’s beliefs and their existence of futility and death. See number 3 entry

      • July 8, 2013

        Number 3 0 3

        But my people of Dominica, if you are certain that you are living the Christian Life–by faith and not by the sole control of your human senses, which may provoke good works but not God’s work –let me remind you of Jesus’s own saying when He walked this earth in the physical, He told His disciples:

        “He who has My commandments and keeps them, it is he who loves Me. And he who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and manifest Myself to him”.

        “If anyone loves Me, he will keep My word; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home with him”. John 14: 21-23

        In fact the whole of John 14 is telling us that Jesus is, and has to be present with us, in this world, for He must do His work of Salvation and Reconciliation in those of us who have chosen to surrender our lives to Him–Eternal Spirit, Christ, God Almighty who lives in Him.

        And so, no matter what the denominational name of our Church, if we are not aware that God is Spirit and we cannot deal with Him if we are not spiritually sensitive, we are in big trouble–especially when we allow our enemy–who is Satan–to plague our mind with all sorts of self conceit.

        Again at John 15: 5, He tells us; 5 “I am the vine, you are the branches. He who abides in Me, and I in him, bears much fruit; for without Me you can do nothing”.

        But what about Matthew 28: 18-20 as Jesus was ascending into heaven, when He gave His disciples the Great Commission, here are His final words to them: And lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

        Jesus is not in the world, they say! And so a Pope must be glorified for the healing of woman with a sick brain! Well God is very about this because He said at Jeremiah 9: 23 23

        Thus says the Lord: “Let not the wise man glory in his wisdom, let not the mighty man glory in his might. Nor let the rich man glory in his riches; But let him who glories glory in this,
        That he understands and knows Me, that I am the Lord, exercising loving-kindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth. For in these I delight,” says the Lord. I rest my case!

        More jargon and hocus-pocus.Why are you writing about things you don’t know about believing you are someone with authority, which you not,so laughable. When you make reference to the followers of the Catholic Church as sheep, what make you think you are not a sheep.You are no different from truth and justice the only difference between you two is in degree of the beliefs held.

      You do not have to believe. God gave you a free mind and will. This is the same free mind and will which will either save you or condemn you. Believe what you believe but keep in mind that one day you will die. There is one truth and one Church that Our Lord established. There will be no thousand churches in Heaven and its believers.
      I am a realistic person. My duty is to defend my Church against its enemies and their evil words as imbedded in their hearts, minds and souls.
      If God forgives them for causing divisions and unloving ways, He will purge it out of them. He knows what to do and He knows when.

      I love reading and listening to Christians when they have different interpretations as to what their Bible says.Why is it you Christians argue over bible which is supposed to be the word of God. I do not know what Christian domination you belong to, but I’m sure there are certain core practices and beliefs which your denomination adherer to and that Christians belonging to the Catholic Church would object to, saying that what you all do is not in the Bible.I have notice that the only thing that unite Christians is their belief in Jesus, but when it comes to the bible, the word of God they have different interpretations.

      When we look around us and see the divine principle in operation and how it works do we really think it is necessary to have a belief in things called saints whether the bible says so or not.As to you believing that for something to be true it has to be in the bible, how sad it is to live your life with such belief.Where is that divine thing called the mind,God has given you and which is in all of us, don’t you think it was given to us to use for a purpose isn’t that the essence of God in us, why shut it off believing in such absurdities. Difference of opinion is advantageous is religion.The several sects perform the office of a censor morum over each other. Is uniformity attainable? Millions of innocent men, women and children since the introduction of Christianity, have been burnt, tortured, fined, imprisoned, yet we have not advanced one inch towards uniformity. What has been the effect of coercion? To make one half the world fools, and the other half hypocrites. To support roguery and error all over the earth.These are words for Thomas Jefferson.

        You have noted above, the years that some churches were formed and by whom after the Catholic Church was established. This is why those who are not Catholics have different interpretation and opinions. They will continue to be as long as they remain outside of the Catholic Church. Those who renounced their Catholic beliefs are among them. This is the reason for all those disputes. They are not to be compared to the Catholic Church and vice versa. They are not one and the same with the Catholic Church. I hope you comprehend this. Pray to God for enlightenment.

        Christians were persecuted and murdered for their faith by non-Christians who hate the Faith of Our Lord Jesus Christ. They are martyrs. Those who died in this manner long ago are in Heaven with God.
        These enemies were spurred on by the devil. Those enemies who persecuted the Christians are also dead and no doubt in Hell.

      This is why I am a Catholic. I did not allow myself to be falsely indoctrinated for those people do not have the truth. God did not give them a mandate to go about seeking Catholics of all to aggressively indoctrinate and influence them to leave the Catholic Church. Anyone who allowed them to influence them in such a manner to leave the Catholic Church and turned its enemies are fools. I feel sorry for them. One day they will see the effect of their foolishness and lack of faith of the One True Church Our Lord Jesus Christ established on earth.
      Catholics must be more vocal and defend their Faith and Church against its enemies as you and Liza who were once practicing Catholics. Catholics God did not rescind your baptism. As God, He never will because He blest these baptisms. No one earth can eliminate this baptism that God has blest. People are foolish to baptize you into their beliefs for you were already baptized. As St. Paul said, “There is one baptism.” They deceived you badly. You are still a Catholic to eternity, Heaven or Hell.

      You call yourselves Christians but you are not true Christians. If you were true Christians you would act in a godly manner towards the Catholic Church and respect it. The Catholic Church does not harass you and persecute you for even leaving It. Why harass It? You are doing the same to me as a member of this Church. First comes love and respect for God, His Church and for others. You lack it. You are not obeying what Our Lord Jesus Christ taught according to Holy Scriptures. God knows it.
      Why concern yourself about what the Catholic Church does, even though it is to canonize saints? You renounced your Catholic beliefs. We are not asking you to believe. We are stating a fact of our Catholic beliefs, Its Doctrines and religious practice which does not concern you or Liza or other enemies. You are in no position to criticize it.
      Why then concern yourself with it? Furthermore your critics cannot change anything. Therefore leave well alone. Leave the Catholic Church alone and leave Catholicism to Catholics. In other words, as a bad neighbor and an evil person, you are too interfering. Mind your own business. This is what God wants you to do and to save your soul. If you have children pray for them and try to save their souls.

      I do not have to show you or anyone anything in the Bible. You should know or you should have known. You were baptized a Catholic, made First Holy Communion and you were Confirmed. If you do not know I will never be able to convince you.
      When you made your first Holy Communion, the prayer of those who did is:

      I renounce Satan with all his works and pomps.
      I give myself to Jesus, by the hands of Mary,
      Forever and ever.

      All those who made their First Holy Communion in Dominica, at that time with the officiation of especially the Redemptorists Priests should have learned this “Vow” as they learned and stated on the Altar Railing.
      You believed then, all what the Holy Catholic Church believes and teaches, no doubt up to a few years ago until you were falsely indoctrinated. What happened to you to cause you to go astray in disbelief?
      I have stated that the Catholic Church does not make saints. God makes saints.
      As St. Paul said, “Those who die ‘in the Lord are not dead. They are alive in God.”
      You should know the process why the Catholic Church beatified and canonized them as saints. This comes through the Holy Spirit. If you did not allow yourself to be adversely indoctrinated to join another church, you would have known this and more.

    The definition of canonizing have to do with.

    “To declare (a deceased person)an officially recognized saint.”

    According to the R.C.there are no living saints.But God in His words (the bible) tells us.

    “As for the SAINTS who ARE on the EARTH.They are the excellent ones in whom is all My delight.”Psalm 16:3

    The next verse is totally opposed to what the R.C church is teaching the poor souls.

    “Precious in the sight of the Lord IS the death of His SAINTS.”Psalm 116:15.

    Paul the apostle wrote to several churches and individuals in the New Testament and addressed them as SAINTS.1Corthians 6:1

    Again He sent a letter to a group of people who were saved by the grace of God and called them SAINTS.Ephesians 1:1

    The word saint simply means, a person who is set aside by God and 4 God.One who is sanctified or holy.
    In order words any person, boy or girl rich or poor, black/white who sees himself as a sinner and trusting the Lord Jesus 4 the salvation of his soul.This person is born again and is called a SAINT of God.amen and amen

        @Dominica_Lover July 8, 2013

        You said “The Bible is a book about stories. Get over all-you selves! It is not real, people who wrote it were sinners too”

        I hate to tell you this, but you have done nothing else except to express the condition of your “mind” and that condition is nothing but carnal; however “the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can it be”. Roman 8:7

        That means God already knew the state of mind you would maintain, at this time of your days on earth, and He spoke about it long before you were conceived in your mother’s womb. Are you claiming that God is not real?

        And so, for your information the Bible is God’s “Inspired Word” He simply chose men to write them down, by the Guidance, Wisdom, and Insights of His “Supernatural Influence” in their conscience–His Name is Holy Spirit.

        It is true that men have re-written and interpreted the English Bible without the guidance of Holy Spirit–and so they have made a mess of God’s Word by using their foolish human wisdom and philosophy.

        Nonetheless those of us who have been anointed by Holy Spirit, are able to know the modern translations and interpretation of the English Bibles, of which man has tampered with God’s Word–Holy Spirit will warn us not use those certain Bibles; that is a truth which I have spoken here.

        And so, God is in Primary control and He will have “Super Power” against the enemy who is trying to have victory, but that cannot happen.

        The Word of God in the Bible, which Holy Spirit has written through His chosen servants, is food for the soul, which has been revived or awakened to live Life in Love.

        The mind of that person, with that soul within, is provoked to “spiritual” hunger by his or her faith. That kind of hunger does not send us to our refrigerator; it sends us to the Bible to ingest and digest the Word of God–which is the “Bread of Life”–the Body of the Man, Himself–the Name is Jesus Christ. He tells us that food stays good always and gives us Eternal Life.

        I take it that you are not hungry for that kind of food, but you better pray for that hunger–and stop your foolish about “stories that is not real and that sinners wrote the Bible”–you have made a great fool of yourself before a huge audience.

        Also, you have lied against “Holy Spirit”, and that is blasphemy–I suggest that you “watch your mouth” or the “thoughts of your mind”! Do take heed.

      As always you really have brain damage which needs to be repaired, if it is not too late to be repaired. :twisted: :mrgreen:
      If only you knew. If only you practiced the faith. If you do, if only you practice it as you should by doing your utmost to obey God’s Commandments and the religious teaching of the Church, approved by The Holy Spirit.
      You do lack godly enlightenment. There are many more people/souls in Heaven who are saints that we do not know of. On Judgment Day you will find out or rather when you die and are faced with your eternal judgment, all godliness you denounced, that you criticized, rejected and refused to honor God of all, the truth will all be revealed to you. May the eternal dilemma and result for you not be wailing and gnashing of teeth.
      The problem with some people who reject God, who do not practice the faith and who do not read godly matters about the faith, sadly for them, they deprive themselves of Gods blessings, graces, virtues, the gifts of the Holy Spirit and enlightenment. Due to this, obviously, they are blinded by the darkness of sin which they have allowed to permeate the entire being. What is worst, “they are trampling on their redemption” and due to their mentality, stand to lose it forever and suffer in Satan’s cauldron of everlasting fire.
      Therefore, this is why they make such negative comments which are false, viewing such matters negatively and what which they know nothing about it, they can never be accurate in whatever they state. Sadly, those who hear and read about their comments will believe them as the gospel truth, leading them astray to also their eternal detriment. God is not pleased with people as you.
      Those who cause others to cease practicing the faith or prevent them from doing so and to go astray, they will be more severely punished and banished forever. This is the Word of the Lord.

      Matthew 12:33:37 – A Tree and Its Fruit – “Either declare the fruit good and its fruit is good, or declare the tree rotten and its fruit is rotten, for a tree is known by its fruit…A good person brings forth good out of a store of goodness, but an evil person brings forth evil out of a store of evil. I tell you, on the Day of Judgment people will render an account for every careless word they speak. By your words, you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.”

      The Lord has spoken. He who is faithful and true to his words and teachings, will never rescind them. Therefore, pay heed before it is too late for you! God, His Church and His Clergy are not mocked!

      • July 8, 2013

        It is so funny that you of all people telling someone they have brain damage simply because they do not share the same Religious belief as yours.I would like to ask you.What makes you think that you got godly enlightenment.Do you think that Godly enlightenment comes from religious beliefs which you cling on to, how sad. Religious dogma can do strange things to the mind of man, it is the perfect fertilizer for keeping man ignorant of himself and the divine principle.

        Hi Justice and Truth
        whenever you are defending your church you must learn to use the Bible if not your rational and humanistic reasoning cannot convince any non-catholic, like one of the previous writers point out (by quoting the bible)only God has the authority to make people saints not any human being. Anyone who accept the Lord Jesus Christ as his Lord and personal Saviour, God saves instantly and declared that person a saint, which mean set-a-part for Christ’s, this is clear in the Bible as the light of day. Please read carefully, ask the Holy Spirit to illuminate your mind so the scriptures that J.J. John-Charles has quoted can become real to you and stop holding-on to the rituals and traditions of the Roman Catholic Church. Also read Hebrews Ch. 1:1-3, may God bless His word to your Heart.

      Brain damage:

      Here is a list of some popes which you do not know about and never will if you do not direct your warped mind in the right direction so that your mentality could be changed:

      Pope Clement I – 1st
      Pope Clement XI – 11th
      Pope Pius X – 10th
      Pope John XXIII – 23rd
      Pope Benedict XV – 15th
      Pope Boniface VIII – 8th
      Pope Leo XIII – 13th
      Pope St. Gregory the Great
      Pope Pius X – 10th
      Pope Pius XII – 12th
      Pope Paul XV – 15th
      Pope Innocent III – 3rd
      Pope John Paul II – 2nd

      Note the numbers after their names. The numbers represent a succession of popes down through the ages. They took names of whom they wished to emulate and as their Patrons.
      Consider how many more came before them and after them, the last being Pope John Paul II, Pope Benedict XVI and now Pope Francis I. Pope Francis took his name in honor of St. Francis of Assissi.

      There are more popes. I took the above names from a prayer book which is entitled, “Prayers Of The Popes.”

      Pope Paul XVI said: “We cannot be Christians unless we pray.” Obviously, worship God as we should.

      Pope St. Gregory the Great said: “If you love the good that you see in another, you make it your own.” – I love to repeat this one as circumstances present themselves.

      One of Pope John Paul II’s Prayer for: “Husbands and Wives” – Marriage solely between one man and one woman as God ordained.

      A Prayer for Husbands And Wives

      Father, You called us to found this family together. Give us the grace to animate it with Your love, may our family always comfort those who live in it and welcome those who enter it. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen!

      One of Pope John XXIII’s Prayer:

      For the Spirit of Jesus in Our Society

      O Jesus, come back into our society, our family life, our souls and reign there as our peaceful Sovereign. Enlighten with the splendor of faith and the charity of Your tender heart the souls of those who work for the good of the people, for Your poor. Impart to them Your own spirit, a spirit of discipline, order and gentleness, preserving the flame of enthusiasm ever alight in their hearts. . . . May that day come very soon, when we shall see You restored to the center of civic life, born on the shoulders of Your joyful people. Amen!

      There is a godly reason why these two will be canonized as other Popes and some laity who have lived a godly, sacrificial life for the Lord and in the Lord.

      You said: “I am so sorry for those people that cannot see the truth”. Let me add that situation is a very sad thing.

      But that sadness is not about the innocent and the humble; God Almighty knows their weakness and their ignorance– He has set aside the day when He will open the eyes of their mind, that they might come to know what is His, Good and Acceptable, and Perfect Will for their Life in Love, because of the Spiritual Blood of Jesus Christ–which is the Life-line of the soul in its awakening and spiritual hunger.

      The sadness is for the proud and the arrogant, who is living in the darkness of night, they do not know the Light of Day–they are spiritually blind and deaf, but they refuse to acknowledge that flaw in them, God will not force healing on those who believe they are “mighty healthy”.

      Too bad that they continue in the state of perish, their mortal body wilting away with a soul that is dead within, because they will not take heed of those whom God has chosen to throw out the Lifeline to them

      No! There are some saints who are black. I will have to search for the correct number that I know who were canonized. One is a man from Haiti. There is also a North American Indian woman who was recently canonized a saint. Their life stories are godly interesting.
      Keep in mind that Catholicism began in Israel, Greece, Italy, etc. Then in the ancient days the Catholic missionaries went throughout the world to preach the Gospel. Years later they went to other countries. Some people accepted Christianity and others did not. Among them were black nations as Africa in those days. However, there are saints in Heaven who are blacks.
      Therefore, do not give up. You, too, may become a saint.
      God created us to know him, love him and to serve him in this world and to be happy with him forever in Heaven.
      Some people deny themselves the grace of God. No exception are those who harass and persecute the Catholic Church. You, ensure you do not miss the boat of eternal salvation. :)

    Are “Saints” only from the Catholic Church? How , and when does an individual becomes a “Saint?” In the Catholic Church you become a Saint when you can no long have any earthly participation. Isn’t that interesting? In other words, you become something when in fact you are nothing – in this life. Another reason I could not ever be a ROMAN CATHOLIC. What they do and say makes no sense what-soever. My Sister would say: “That’s where my Mother put me.” I saw on TV where a “Mother” put her new born child in a dumpster (garbage) and somebody else had to remove the child from that “RUBBISH” environment. Where did your Mother put you?

    • Justice and Truth
      July 7, 2013

      Some things are difficult for you to comprehend because you do not have such a mind especially when you have rejected God. How do you expect to understand?
      You take it upon yourself and your understanding that they cannot have earthly participation. Who taught this to you? You are wrong.
      Have you ever dreamed of a family member or a friend who passed on? God allows them to visit us be it in our dreams.
      Whatever the saints do, it is not without the approval of God. He ordained it. They are praying for us on earth that our souls will not perish, if we are not disobedient and stubborn to resist God. They intercede for us at God’s Holy and Pure Throne. This is why some people who prayed to them received miracles of healing, “granted by God” to show us and prove to us that they are in Heaven and are interceding for us. Based on those miracles, the Catholic Church eventually beatify and then canonize them.
      God makes saints. In order to become a saint it is imperative that you live a godly life, to perfection so that when you die you will be a saint.
      There is a lot occurring in Heaven which you and I do not know about. I like to say, some as you, more so than others. I can only surmise at certain times what is occurring. In especially our times, God has chosen those who served him well on earth to be canonized saints. In the eyes of God they excelled in serving him on earth. They are examples for us who are alive that we might emulate them and obtain eternal salvation. You should envy them that they are in an exalted position and not deny their holiness in Heaven and that they are favored.
      Just as you work for your keep (I hope) so did they work for their eternal salvation. We have to do likewise if we hope to obtain eternal salvation. We will not obtain it by denying it, by only reading Holy Scriptures and praying in the privacy of our homes.
      They are not being canonized for no reason. Are you aware that Holy Scripture taught us, “Humble yourselves before God and He will exalt you in due time?” This is what the Lord meant.
      Earth will know of their godliness and hopefully, I reiterate, emulate them that they, too will obtain eternal salvation and become saints.
      When you die, what the Catholic Church do and say which pertains to God and paying him homage, will make sense to you. When all is revealed to you, if you did not become a Catholic, you will wish that you had become one. For, this is The Church that will lead you to The Most Sacred Heart of Our Lord Jesus Christ and to Heaven.
      The Catholic Church had the Holy Bible first. Pray that when you die it will not be too late for you to comprehend. If so, you will envy the Catholic Christians who were smart enough to practice their faith, remained in it and persevered to the end with the allotted time and short life that God gave them.
      Earth is temporary. Eternity is forever. Do not waste time criticizing the Catholic Church and denouncing its religious practice in the ancient days. Practice the faith for your own mortal and spiritual benefit.

There is no salvation outside of the Catholic Church. God did not establish all those other churches. It is high time that Catholics of all know this so they can spread it around.
        Since I was a child I knew that the Catholic Church was the one God established on earth and I am still in it. I never doubted my faith and no one could sway me from leaving It. Those who laugh last laughs the best. They will get the last laugh.

Some people do not believe in Purgatory but it exists where souls make restitution/ atonement. It is a place of suffering for sins committed which God in his boundless mercy forgave but they still have to make atonement prior to ascending to God’s Holy and Pure Throne. Few people/souls will go directly to Heaven.
      You know what Our Lord said: “Be perfect as your heavenly Father is perfect.” Note how many of them, Dominicans lambaste the Catholic Church and harass and persecute It and its beliefs and religious practice. Are they perfect and practicing what Our Lord Jesus Christ taught us? Do you think when they die they will immediately go to Heaven if God forgave them? I know, NO WAY! They have not depicted love for us Catholics and our Church. They are not smart people who do not practice what Our Lord taught, love for all. They are denying themselves the blessing and grace of God.
      They are not Catholics and so The Church knows nothing about them. The Catholic Church can only beatify and canonize those who are Catholics and whom they know about.
      God knows who are saints in Heaven. There are Catholics whom we do not know are saints in Heaven. Your ancestors could be in Heaven.
      Those who totally gave their lives to God while on earth, performed acts of love and mercy in Jesus Name, without counting the cost and time, going that second mile cheerfully and without complaining will surely become saints. They lived a sacrificial life for God. So much more to say.

      Dahman, it is difficult for you to comprehend because you are not a member of the Catholic Church. Those who are not members will never comprehend the Catholic Church, Its Doctrines and Religious Teaching. Even though you do not comprehend, this does not mean that there is no truth. It is a mistake that some people make, “leaning on their own understanding.”
      Holy Scriptures teaches us we should never do that. We should lean on the understanding of God and ask him for enlightenment to comprehend and not make callous errors and of judgment in denouncing what we do not know. This depicts mortal and spiritual ignorance.

      No one asked you to believe in a man. We Catholics do not believe in a man or men. We believe only in God and worship Him.
      The Popes have been the Head, the Hierarchy of the Catholic Church. Yes! They represent Our Lord Jesus Christ as Head of the Catholic Church “on earth”. Our Lord Jesus Christ is the First Head of the Catholic Church. He is not on earth. Therefore, He gave us a Leader of His Church to listen to and to obey. In other words, the Pope guides the Church, the flock of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
      Other churches have leaders. A business has a head. Other organizations have heads. A household has a head. It is God who ordained them to be. They must be listened to and respected. Otherwise… Why not the Catholic Church without doubt or question? Do you see the sense of it? What more can I state to convince you? Anyway, I have informed you.

      We have a tendency to state that we do not believe in this and that or this person and that person. We do use some words out of context.
      During a Homily pertaining to “The Cross of Our Lord Jesus Christ, a Day we specifically remember every September in memory of him, the priest asked us, the congregation, “Do you believe in Satan?” He went on to explain that we should say, “I do not believe in … I believe in God…” Note the difference.
      Try to comprehend this as the Truth of the Catholic Church which God has ordained. As I always say, it will be revealed to everyone when they close their eyes for the last time on earth.
      This reminds me what Pope Urban VIII (8th) stated: “It is better to believe than not to believe, for if you believe and it is proven true, you will be happy that you believed…”
      Another person stated in an article entitled: “Wise and Otherwise”: “I do not seek to understand that I may believe, but I believe in order to understand. For this I believe–that unless I believe, I should not understand…”
      The Catholic Church has some wise sayings of those Popes, Bishops, Clergy and the laity, past and present. I quote from what is documented. The only person you should believe in is God.
      The words of a religious song: “Christ has no body, feet, arms and legs on earth but our own…” Therefore, God left us a Church and a Leader of His Catholic Church. He is The Pope!
      May God grant you the grace of enlightenment.

        Lots of truths are hidden in the vaults of the vatican (seat of the anti Christ), the truth that they stole from the promise land, Ethiopia, the land to fulfill prophecy
        Did you know Rome was responsible for the death of over 60 million Christians.

      Dahman, you made me laugh. :lol: Our Lord Jesus Christ established his Church on earth. Some disobedient, stubborn and rebellious people refused to join it. Others allowed false indoctrinators that lured them away from it. If they were all Catholics including yourself you would not think that God is representing only Catholics. He meant that everyone on earth would be Catholics. Catholic means “Universal”. This was the intention of God; not the mess that some members of humanity created by forming their own church. They cannot go to Heaven and not directly in that state. This is why they are not Catholics. It is through their own fault.
      I am happy to be a Catholic and thank God that I am one.

Be careful with your words lest you condemn yourself. Always keep in mind that God listens to your ignorant and wicked charade which lacks substance and truth. He takes note of them for your judgment and a mini one while you are living. Do not condemn yourself your earth, while you are still living. Otherwise, woe to you! :twisted: :mrgreen: :twisted:
      It is said that people who speak evil especially of God’s chosen ones, when they die their mouth will remain open.

      You lack enlightenment. They do not decide for God. God decided for them through his Holy Spirit by inspiring them, through the miracles of healing which their doctors confirmed. I wish you would read more and pray to God to enlighten you. Some of you only speak about what is on the surface of your minds. You do not pray to God and ask him to reveal those things to you, depending on your mere mortal and simple understanding. Do not allow Satan to block your mind. Try to learn by reading and praying to God to assist you. What more can I say?

      Little do you know which is why you and/or your ancestor left the Catholic Church and turned its enemy. Bad company corrupts. The truth was revealed to those who died. I hope God had mercy on their souls and will have mercy on yours.
      What do you know? You will never win over the Catholic Church. For God has given the mandate to His One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church. His enemies will not prevail against it.
      When Our Lord spoke to Peter and said: “Thou art Peter and upon this Rock I will build My Church and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it for I am with you always even unto the consummation of the world”, He spoke about The Catholic Church he established on earth. His intention for the world for love, peace and unity was One Church, namely The Catholic Church.
      Your earthly leaders, no exception yourself have turned the world into anything but what Our Lord intended for our peace and harmony.
      See your persecution of this Church. As always, the truth will be revealed to you one day. God is listening and taking note of your lack of godly and mortal ignorance, what which you never knew about and will never know because it is hidden from you. :twisted: :mrgreen: :twisted: :mrgreen: :twisted: :mrgreen: :twisted: :mrgreen:

      What is it desperate about? Are you not stupid to make such a senseless statement? :twisted: :mrgreen: :twisted: :mrgreen:
      God wants you to be a saint. First, you must pay him sincere homage, pray fervently with a loving heart, perform acts of love and cease persecuting the Catholic Church. It is not an act of love for God and for us all who are members of this Church to harass it and make derogatory statements about it. Otherwise you will never make it to Heaven. St. Paul said, “Nothing defiled will ever enter Heaven.”
      You know what Our Lord Jesus Christ told us about love for God and love for one another. Do not tell me you are not aware of that.
      I wish those who say they go by the Bible would practice what is contained in the Holy Bible which is the Word of God.
      Our Lord said: “Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah say” This people honor Me with their lips but their hearts are far from Me. In vain do they worship Me, teaching as doctrine human precepts.”
      Read about it in Matthew. If you do not understand it, pray to Our Lord and hope He will grant you this enlightenment.

    This is ridiculous!! How can a man make a man a saint? People become saints when they receive Jesus as saviour, when they are born again. The apostle Paul wrote churches and address them as saints.Was he writing to dead people? Certainly not. A mere man should understand that this practice is deliberately
    wrong . It should be clear that Roman Catholicism is a cult.

      Those who do not comprehend it, it is because they do not possess a godly mind. Why concern yourself and worry about what you do not know and will never comprehend on earth? It is obvious that you do not comprehend heavenly things. Your mind is still too worldly. Leave it alone!
      You know the Bible? Those who died in Our Lord Jesus Christ’s friendship are not dead. Do you not know what Our Lord taught us and also St. Paul? As Our Lord said, “Are you, too without understanding?”
      People like you will never understand that Our Lord Jesus Christ established His Catholic Church. This is why people like you who do not possess a godly mind persecute it with the help of Satan on your side and vice versa. Wait when you die.

      So many things in the Roman Catholic Church are wrong. There is not one verse of scripture to support –

      The papacy. NO :!: Matthew 16:13-18 do not support having a pope. In the original New Testament Greek language Jesus said *Peter, you are a stone. And upon this massive rock will build my church, …*

      Paul said *Other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ.* (1 Corinthians 3:11)

      Neither is there one verse of scripture to support –

      Baptizing infants.

      Baptizing by sprinkling or pouring.

      Calling the priest Father.

      Praying to Mary.

      Making saints.

      Praying to saints.

      Praying for the dead.

      Giving money to the priest to pray for the dead.

      Forbidding the priests to marry.

      The practice of indulgences.

      Forbidding people to read the Bible in their own language as was done in the so called *dark ages* when the church forbid them to read any Bible except a Latin Bible.

      Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill.

      • February 28, 2017

        Continued:

        Neither is there one verse of scripture telling them to burn at the stake (murder) those who reject certain Catholic doctrines or practices. Do not tell me they don\’t do this! During centuries past multiplied thousands Christians were killed for their faith in the word of God and because they rejected Roman fables. Our Lord Jesus taught us to love our enemies and do good even to those who despitefully use us.

        Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill.
