Rev. Fr. Leonard Goffine’s
The Church’s Year
Why is this day thus named?
Because on this day the Church blesses ashes, and places them on the heads of her faithful children, saying: “Remember man, thou art dust, and unto dust thou shaft return.”
Why is this done?
St. Charles Borromeo gives us the following reasons for this practice: that the faithful may be moved to sincere humility of heart; that the heavenly blessing may descend upon them, by which they, being really penitent, will weep with their whole soul for their sins, remembering how earth was cursed because of sin, and that we have all to return to dust; that strength to do true penance may be given the body, and that our soul may be endowed with divine grace to persevere in penance.
Is the practice of putting ashes upon our heads pleasing to God?
It is, for God Himself commanded the Israelites to put ashes on their heads for a sign of repentance. (Jer. XXV. 34.) Thus did David (Ps, CI. 10.) who even strewed ashes on his bread; the Ninivites, (Jonas III. 5.) Judith, (Jud, IX. 1.) Mardochai, (Esth. IV 1.) Job, (JobXLII. 6.) etc. The Christians of the earliest times followed this practice as often as they did public penance for their sins.
Why from this day until the end of Lent are the altars draped in violet?
Because, as has been already said, the holy season of Lent is a time of sorrow and penance for sin, and the Church desires externally to demonstrate by the violet with which she drapes the altar, by the violet vestments worn by the priests, and by the cessation of the organ and festive singing, that we in quiet mourning are bewailing our sins; and to still further impress the spirit of penance upon us, there is usually only a simple crucifix or a picture of Christ’s passion, left visible upon the altar, and devoutly meditating upon it, the heart is mostly prepared for contrition.
Modern society is the product of a Cabalist (satanic) conspiracy against God & man.
Born in Ireland on July 3, 1883, Denis was the youngest of three sons of the devout Catholic couple Timothy and Brigit Fahey. An avid reader with a keen intellect, he was educated by the Holy Ghost Fathers.
Denis Fahey joined their Order in 1900 at age 17 and was ordained to the priesthood in Rome in 1910.
Fr Fahey studied world history in depth while in Rome, and analyzed the push to “Modernism” being imposed upon society. Undoubtedly he was influenced by the struggles of then Pope Pope Pius X (left) whose writings included: Syllabus Condemning the Errors of the Modernists (Lainentabili Sane), Modernism (Pascendi Dominici Gregis) both in 1907, Our Apostolic Mandate (On the “Sillon”) in 1910 and The Oath Against Modernism 1910. Fr Fahey realized that the Pope was battling the stealth philosophy of Modernism, which is Organized Naturalism.
Organized Naturalism can be more clearly understood as the foundation of Freemasonry. Naturalism is a materialist philosophy that rejects the existence of the soul or a universal moral order and purpose (God.) This is Satanism. Fr Fahey studied the Protocols of the Learned Elders Zion and recognized it as the evil blueprint for a New World Order. Mankind is viewed as livestock rather than possessing the unique soul created in the image and likeness of God. For Fr Fahey a Catholic priest, this enemy must be challenged.
Fahey wrote, “These forces are three in number, one being invisible, the other two visible. The invisible host is that of Satan and the other fallen angels, while the visible forces are those of the Jewish Nation and Freemasonry.”
(The Kingship of Christ and the Conversion of the Jewish Nation, p. 61)
Quoting the writings of Cardinal Pie of Poitiers, Fr. Fahey wrote:
“Naturalism denies the very existence of revelation. It follows that the inevitable law and the obstinate passion of Naturalism is to dethrone Our Lord Jesus Christ and to drive Him from the world. This will be the task of Anti-Christ and it is Satan’s supreme ambition.
(The Kingship of Christ and Organized Naturalism. Pg. 3)
He also wrote,”Modern History since 1789 is, to a large extent, the account of the domination of state after state by the naturalistic supra nationalism of Freemasonry, behind which has been steadily emerging the still more strongly organized naturalistic supra nationalism of the Jewish Nation.”
(The Kingship of Christ and Organized Naturalism)
Fr Fahey was smeared as an “anti-Semite”, the stop-think phrase used by those who refuse to face mankind’s dire predicament.
The argument rages on today whenever anyone in Catholic circles writes about Fr Fahey.
“Two nations for whom Fr. Denis had a deep love were his own nation and the nation that gave birth to the Messiah, the Jewish nation. Loving Christ and His mother as he did, Fr. Fahey was deeply hurt by the calumny that he was anti-Semitic in any way.”
FREEMASONRY, CABALISM FOR GENTILES
In 1950, Fr Fahey republished a work by Msgr. George F. Dillon, DD, ” The War of Anti-Christ with the Church and Christian Civilization.” After reading a summary, Pope Leo XIII approved the work and funded the publication of an Italian version. He openly denounced the collaboration between the Bavarian Illuminati and the Freemasons, as well as the collaboration between Lord Palmerston and the Carbonari. He was also critical of the Alta Vendita document, Napoleon Bonaparte’s supposed ties with the Masons, and the secretive character of the Fenian organization.”
The republished book was entitled, Grand Orient Freemasonry Unmasked as the Secret Power Behind Communism.,1950.
“The central theme of the book alleges that atheistic Illuminism, through the infrastructure of Grand Orient Freemasonry, driven by the ideology of the philosophes laid the foundations for a large scale, ongoing war against Christendom in general and the Catholic Church in particular. The document claims that this had been manifested primarily through manipulating the outbreak of various radical liberal republican revolutions. Particularly those which are focused on atheism or religious indifferentism in their anti-Catholicism.”
As his Wikipedia entry shows, Father Fahey, who died in 1954, was a tireless crusader for God. Fahey promoted the Catholic social doctrine of Christ the King and was involved in Irish politics through his organization Maria Duce.
“Fahey firmly believed that “the world must conform to Our Divine Lord, not He to it.” This often saw Fahey in conflict with systems which he viewed as promoting “naturalism” –particularly Communism, Freemasonry and rabbinic Judaism.”
He left behind a large body of work that upheld his view that mankind indeed is under siege by powerful Satanists.
