Of course, the evil Novus Ordo religion headed by the apostate, Mr. Jorg Bergoglio aka Francis has gone on hitch free to claim that an apostate Mother Theresa of Calcutta is a “Catholic saint” and those who claim to be Catholic are hailing the sacrilege.
This even shows us again the evil that is Novus Ordo religion and how it seeks to destroy all Catholic ideas corrupting it and feeding the false version to the whole world that swallows it hook, line and sinker.
The enemies of the Church are celebrating!
But we need to speak up ever more loudly educating people on the falsehood going on.
How did such a person as Mother Theresa came to be considered a saint?
She is known for her charitable works in India But charitable works alone cannot make one a saint. We know that She was not even a Catholic given her false teachings and acts. Please refer to this article to understand why Mother Theresa was not even a Catholic! Refer to this article
Of course we know that she is not a saint since to be a saint, one must be Catholic. The false religion of Novus Ordo is just entertaining itself but the problem is that it is teaching people that it is the Catholic Church that is declaring Mother Theresa saint. This is why we have to refute them.
The entire mess comes from the table of John Paul II who destroyed Catholic canonization process to make way for his own “canonization” and that of his friends in Novus Ordo religion!
Before we go into that we need to look again at the idea of canonization in the Catholic Church.
The Nature of Canonizations
Canonization in the Catholic Church is quite a serious endeavor. The Catholic Church canonizes or beatifies only those whose lives have been marked by the exercise of heroic virtues and heroic sanctity, and only after these have been proved by common repute for sanctity and by conclusive arguments. The chief thing to note, however, lies in the meaning of the term canonization. The Catholic Church seeing in those canonized nothing more than friends and servants of God whose holy lives have made them worthy of His special love. The Church does not pretend to make gods for worship as enemies of the church assert. The Church declares saints whose lives are to be emulated by the Church militant, that is those who are yet alive in this world and also through these saints, God’s graces are obtained through devotion to them.
A saint MUST be found to be of heroic virtue and sanctity. In order to be heroic a Christian virtue must enable its owner to perform virtuous actions with uncommon promptitude, ease, and pleasure, from supernatural motives and without human reasoning, with self-abnegation and full control over his natural inclinations. A heroic virtue, then, can simply be defined as a habit of good conduct that has become a second nature, a new motive power stronger than all corresponding inborn inclinations, capable of rendering easy a series of acts each of which, for the ordinary person, would be beset with very great, if not insurmountable, difficulties.
Also the person being declared must have heroic sanctity. This means that the person’s
attachment to things of God and his holiness of life must be at a heroic level different from what the ordinary Christian can attain.
The main origin of canonization and beatification must be sought in the Catholic doctrine of the worship (cultus), invocation, and intercession of the saints. As was taught by St. Augustine: Catholics, while giving to God alone adoration and worship strictly so-called, honors are given to the saints because of the Divine Supernatural gifts which have earned them eternal life, and through which they reign with God in the heavenly fatherland as His chosen friends and faithful servants. In other words, Catholics honor God in His saints as the loving distributor of supernatural gifts. The worship of latria (latreia), or strict adoration, is given to God alone; the worship of dulia (douleia), or honor and humble reverence, is paid the saints; the worship of hyperdulia (hyperdouleia), a higher form of dulia, belongs, on account of her greater excellence, to the Blessed Virgin Mary.
The Church erects her altars to God alone, though in honor and memory of the saints and martyrs. This is why Catholic altars are adorned with images and pictures of saints. There are Scriptural warrants for such honors to the saints and angels. The Bible asked that angels should be venerated, (See Exodus 23: 2; Joshua 5: 13-14; Daniel 8:15-17 and Daniel 10:4-17; Luke 2:9-12; Acts 12: 7-10; Revelation 5:11….; and 7:1….; Matthew 18:10; etc.), whom holy men are not unlike, as sharers of the friendship of God. And if St. Paul asked the brethren (Romans 15:30; 2 Corinthians 1:11; Colossians 4:3; Ephesians 6:18-19) to help him by their prayers for him to God, we must with even greater reason maintain that we can be helped by the prayers of the saints, and ask their intercession with humility while still fighting for our salvation with fear and trembling. If we may beseech those who still live on earth, why not those who live in heaven?
Enemies of the Church will ask, but Christ is our only mediator? Yes. We reply. The saints are Branches of Christ as Christ told his followers “I am the vine and you are the branches” (John 15:5)
Many theologians have affirmed that when the Church declares someone a saint, through a decree of the pope, that act is infallible! In order words, when the Church says someone is a saint, indeed the person is a saint! Since the Church guided by the Holy Ghost cannot err in such matters.
In local Churches, many people are regarded as saints and put up for public adoration along with those declared by the pope. But in the year 1234, Pope Gregory IX decaled that it was ONLY the pope that will thenceforth have the final say as to who can be venerated as a saint. He therefore started a process of investigations into the lives of those already venerated as saints. He still left it to local churches to select who can be put up as a saint and which will be confirmed by Rome.
But given the abuses, and the accusations coming from the Protestants “reformers”, the central administration of who become saints became the SOLE prerogative of the pope. It was pope Urban VIII that promulgated this in 1642.
The Catholic Process of Canonization
In the main, canonization is a rigorous process! After it is done, it becomes universal and obligatory for the whole church. The first process of achieving canonization of an individual is to institute a petition through the local bishop to the office of the pope and a three step process is begun.
The three basic steps to formal sainthood: First, a formal inquiry is opened and if a person's “heroic virtues and sanctity” are initially confirmed the candidate is called “venerable.” Beatification, usually by the pope, is the second step, and the candidate is called “blessed” Canonization is the third and final step, when a candidate is formally declared a saint.
When the petition is received, the congregation for rites appoints the postulator and the process of investigating what has been submitted by the bishop begins. Also appointed is the “office of the Devil’s Advocate”, this is a person who works as a postulator as well but whose work is negative! He looks for ONE thing that will disqualify the person for sainthood. If the person is a priest and have written books, he will search these books for ONE idea that the person had preached that borders on heresy or error.
During this time, the person is being investigated, people are asked to pray to God in the person’s name to obtain two miracles, usually a cure of a disease, to prove that the person is indeed in heaven and that God can work miracles through the person’s intercession. If two miracles are obtained, these are rigorously investigated by a panel of clergy men and scientists and the Devil’s Advocate, to prove that the cure obtained is beyond the natural realm and is UNQUESTIONABLY a miracle. Many atheists have been involved in this process.
It is only after this rigorous process that the decree of sainthood is issued and a ceremony carried out to present the person to the Universal Church for honor and adoration.
The process is even rare such that the Popes do not honor all the credible cases presented to them because of just one dent on the person. This is why the popes canonized quite a few saints. But there are quite many numbers of saints and Martyrs.
The first known canonization in the Church is that of Saint Udalric, Bishop of Augsburg which took place under Pope John XV in the year 993. Thereafter, recourse to the judgment of the popes was had with greater frequency.
Since then the Popes have proceeded with caution.
The Masonic Takeover of the official Catholic Church
The Masons who replaced the Catholic Church with their false religion of Novus Ordo are apostates. They really do not believe in sainthood. Their actions betray them. They simply did not want to canonize saints or they simply canonize too many to show how a non-sense the idea of sainthood is.
Let us make a simple comparison. Pope Leo XIII canonized just 12 saints. Pius XI canonized 27 reigning for nearly 30 years. Pius XII canonized 33 saints. These are moderate examples of what frequency is in canonizations.
The Modernists, like John XXIII canonized 10 in his short pontificate since he was busy trying to hatch a true plan to finish off the Catholic Church. He himself is not a true fan of the idea of sainthood. The Jewish Freemasonic Infiltrator, Paul VI canonized 21 which he found time to do being too busy promulgating dozens of false documents.
Please NOTE that after 1958, all “canonizations” were unlawful canonizations since there were done by anti-popes. The Catholic Church cannot recognize these as true Canonizations no matter who is involved or being canonized.
It was John Paul II, of the most unfortunate memory, that finally found a way to destroy the Catholic process of sainthood. In other words, he started a major process of deceit to show the world that there is nothing in canonizations done by the Catholic Church. The world is deceived because the world thinks that the acts of John Paul II were indeed Catholic.
His “reforms” of the “Canon Law” in 1983 saw the removal of nearly 101 canons related to issues of canonization and made sure that canonizations become something at the whim of the “pope”. He in Particular removed the office of the Devil’s Advocate who makes sure that no error is admitted.
So, the anti-Popes of Novus Ordo religion have completely moved from refusing to canonize to canonizing anyone they wish. They destroyed the process and canonized many heretics and apostates while insisting that these abominable acts are done by the Catholic Church.
John Paul II did this first to prepare for his own pretend canonization and also to canonize those who are helping them with the destruction of the Catholic Church. Anyone who promotes Vatican II atrocities is canonized. But occasionally they put in known “saints”, that is those who are truly saintly although not canonized to hide their mess. In particular they “canonized” Padre Pio, an enemy of the “reforms” to pretend that they too recognize holiness. Nothing could be further from the truth.
John Paul II himself “canonized” a record 110 “saints” and “beatified” 1, 327 people! This is why “Cardinal” Silvio Oddi called this great increase “Saints factory of John Paul II”!
Benedict XVI not a fan of canonizations himself “canonized” 45 people and beatified 817 people Francis is already on the same track of giving “sainthood” on anyone influential who promotes the destruction of the faith. Francis has already canonized 29 people and beatified 55!
These false popes manufacture miracles to “prove” that their own people are also capable of eliciting miracles. A clear example is the “miracles” attributed to the Apostate, Mother Theresa of Calcutta.
Mother Theresa’s false Miracle
As we have said already, the care the Catholic Church traditionally has taken in proclaiming our Blesseds and Saints is well-known and admirable. Painstaking inquiries are made to prove the complete orthodoxy of the servant of God’s writings and sayings, practice of heroic virtue, and exemplary life to be offered as a model for the whole Church. In addition, a miracle is needed for beatification, and another to be named a saint.
Thorough inquiries are made to examine the writings and words attributed to the candidate to be sure that everything adhered strictly to the Magisterium and Tradition of the Holy Church. Even a slight doubt about the orthodoxy of a statement recorded by the person under examination has been enough to stop the process of beatification from going forward. I cite the well-known case of Anne Catherine Emmerich, a truly holy woman, whose process of beatification was halted on the order of Pope Clement XIV because of questionable interpretations of her visions made by her secretary Clemens Bretano. It is uncertain whether she approved such theses. But because of this doubt, she cannot be beatified and as such presented as an official model for Catholics.
But the Novus Ordo religion does not care about orthodoxy or heroic virtues and sanctity. They just care about popular appeal and promotion of non-Catholic principles!
Please refer again to the article about the apostasy of Mother Theresa here.
Normally the process of beatification can only begin after the candidate is deceased for five years, and after proof of one miracle is given. Miracles are something the Church does not take lightly. In cases of physical cures, it must be clear, without a shadow of a doubt, that the cure cannot have a natural cause.
Now, in the case of Mother Teresa, John Paul II waived the five-year waiting period due to popular sentiments. Then, in 2002 the Vatican recognized one miracle, the cure of Monica Besra, a 35-year-old villager from northern India cured of an ovarian tumor. Besra and the Missionaries of Charity claim that the tumor vanished in September 1998 when a medallion with an image of the late Albanian nun was applied to the site of her pain.
However, Dr. Ranjan Mustafi, chief gynecologist who treated the woman at Balurghat District Hospital in West Bengal, says that it was quite possible that his patient was cured by four anti-TB drugs she was taking at the time, which could have dissolved the tumor. He said he admires Mother Teresa greatly and thinks she should be beatified for her work among the poor. But not for this case. “She [Besra] had a medical disease which was cured by medical science, not by any miracle,” he says.
His hospital superiors back him up, saying that records show she responded to the treatment steadily. Five doctors in Rome consulted by the Vatican on the case disregarded this scientific probability and hastily agreed there was no medical explanation for the cure. Mustafi said he was never contacted by the Vatican.
Monica Besra, of course, believes in the miracle, but admits that she was receiving medical treatments from the doctors at the state-run Balurghat Hospital at that time. “Those who love Mother will believe,” she says simply. That she loves Mother Teresa there is no doubt. But it is not sentiment that determines the value of a miracle in the normal processes of the Catholic Church.
The canonization of Mother Theresa is false and cannot be a catholic act. Those who go ahead with this deceit are in heresy. Every true catholic must desist from invoking the name of Mother Theresa since such an invocation is a mortal sin against the dignity of God. The essence of the Novus Ordo “canonizations”, truly is to suggest that holiness is not something special. It is attained easily such that even heretics and apostates are saints! John Paul II himself even suggested that there are saints who are not Catholics!
For the interest of salvation, people should see again the deceit coming from the Vatican and flee!
