Where is Chinese Catholic Bishop Su?

Bishop Zhimin “James” Su has not been seen since 1997 when he was abducted by Chinese Secret Police

Bishop Su was hunted down, and, disappeared forever in 1997

Bishop Su, like other faithful Catholics, was considered counter revolutionary, an enemy of the atheistic state.

Why?

Because he always refused the demands of the revolutionary communist regime to join the Chinese Catholic Patriotic Association, the always schismatic Catholic Church, led by the communist regime … always separate from Rome.

In 1994 when he was 60 years old, bishop Su, like countless other faithful in China, had already spent almost 25 years in hellish prisons and slave labor camps.

He had been arrested no fewer than five times.

It is unknown if Bishop Su is still alive or if he has been killed during his incarceration.

It is almost certain that he remained faithful to Christ and to the Church.

And it is time to release him!

Catholic Bishop Murdered Because He Did Not Join The Chinese Communist Church

DW5TggMV4AAxLyn.jpgThe family of Bishop Xueyan “Peter Joseph” Fan, the Bishop of Baoding, found his body, in a plastic bag, dumped in the gutter in front of their home in April 1992.

His emaciated body, with bones poking through his flesh, revealed visible signs of extreme torture.

His legs were tied together with a white cloth, very tight and difficult to undo.

From the marks on his legs it appeared that the Communists had broken both.  Each had a blackened color that appeared discolored from heat and pressure.

His head was swollen from injuries on his cheek and forehead.

What had Bishop Fan done?

Chinese Communist officials had ordered that he renounce the Pope.

Our Lady of America: When will A few American Bishops Put Her Image in The Basillica in Washington, D.C. ??

Our Lady wants we the people to pray. Why can’t we have her in our Basillica?  What is the reason, dear Bishops of America?  Her messages are approved!  What a help we are missisng!!  Please! Please! Please!   

“I desire, through my children in America, to further the cause of faith and purity among peoples and nations. I will teach them to become pure like to my heart …..”

What would America be like today had she heeded the words of Our Lady who appeared to Sister Mary Ephrem (Mildred Neuzil)  She promised the gift of purity.  She promised greater wonders than those of Lourdes and Fatima.

Canonical Approval:  Archbishop Leibold , Cincinnati Ohio,approved the apparition in a letter dated May 31, 2007.  He gave his Imprimatur to the revelations from the  Blessed Virgin Mary under her title of ‘Our Lady of America’

And we missed out!  The statue is not enshrined yet in the Basilica where her beautiful presence would  be a constant reminder of her promises to America for the people who stream by and stop to say a prayer at her shrine in the Basilica.

Sister was born in Brooklyn, N.Y. on August 2, 1916.  In 1929 she entered the Sisters of the Precious Blood in Rome City, Indiana.  In 1959 she became a contemplative of the Indwelling Trinity in Fostoria, Ohio.  In 1938 she began to have mystical experiences during which Our Lady appeared to her with messages for her children in America.

She revealed to Sister the image as pictured, and, messages that continued until she died in her convent on January 10, 2000.  She was 83.  Our Lady asked that her statue be made according to the likeness she gave to Sister, and, that it be then solemnly carried in procession, in the Basilica of the National shrine of the Immaculate conception in Washington, D.C. and enshrined there.

Our Lady wished to be honored there in a special way as “Our Lady of America, the Immaculate Virgin”

She promised that the placement of her statue in the National shrine would be a safeguard for our country, and the placement of her image or statue in the home would be a safeguard for the family. 

In 1959 the Basilica of the national Shrine of the Immaculate Conception was dedicated in Washington, and the Bishops of the United States consecrated the country to the Immaculate Conception

On November 11, 2006 the United States Bishops re-consecrated the country to her.

Two days later on November 13, 2006 Archbishop Raymond Burke requested that the statue be displayed at the Bishops conference and on November 15, 2006 Archbishop Burke blessed the statue.

The blessing occurred precisely on the 50th anniversary of the request that Our Lady of America had made on November 15, 1956, in which she asked to be placed in and honored in the National Shrine.

Archbishop Richard Garcia of California had said:  “To have the enthronement of Our Lady of America statue is a timely testimony to us all of the blessing Our Lady is for all of us who live in the United States of America.  Our Lady guides and protects us in this critical time of our history when we need to value even more closely what she as a Mother has taught us:  to hold Christ in the center of our lives and to value the family and its unity, and, to do the will of the Father and to evangelize by pointing others to Christ.

Later Bishop Garcia said:  “Our Lady of Guadalupe is important for all the Americas but to have Our Lady of America and the Immaculate Conception as a special patroness for our nation will bring about the peace we so yearn for and will be a resolution to many social issues, including euthanasia and abortion.

Marian devotions, including those to Our Lady of America, can also lead the faithful to really listen to Christ’s message that all must be bearers of the Gospel and bring about Christ’s love.”

Our Lady promised that greater miracles than those granted at Lourdes and Fatima would be granted here in the United States, if the people responded to her requests.

Let us pray that the U.S. Bishops honor Our Lady of America’s request soon and place her statue in the National Shrine as a safeguard for our country.

Franciscan Father Jose Perez, Cristero Martyr June 2, 1928

It was during the time of the  Cristeros (soldiers of Christ)  and the civil revolt against the Mexican Government, which was enforcing the anti clerical articles of the Constitution, was being pushed by Plutarco Elias Calles, the President.

These articles dated from the year 1917. They sought to eliminate the power of the Catholic Church through persecution and execution.

Franciscan Father Jose Perez, on his way home from saying Mass, was stopped by Federal soldiers, who roped the priest and tied him to one of their horses. It was in June of 1928.

“We have a bull to sell” taunted one of the soldiers.

Forced to go barefoot, Father Perez was dragged on the stone path all the way to Torimaro where he and other Catholic prisoners were exhibited in the public square.

Days later, on June 2, 1928, Mexican Federal soldier, Colonel Severiano ordered the execution of the Friar.

At 5 in the morning Father Jose Perez was shot under a mesquite.28168214_216777958870496_2945954130059707021_n.jpg

Pope Francis Doesn’t “Want To Create Another Mindszenty Case” Really?

images 4.jpgPope Paul VI shows Rome to a beleaguered Cardinal Jozsef Mindszenty, in 1971, upon his arrival in that city after fifteen years as a guest in the American Embassy in Budapest, Hungary, following his arrest and  torture of unspeakable dimensions, followed by a show trial and imprisonment. The red curtains of Communism had draped themselves throughout Europe, and now were blowing in the wind towards the Vatican … even within the eternal city  ……… 

Rich with a millenial history, the Catholic Church in Hungary links its origins to the very origins of the Magyar nation and people.  By the will of its first founder and organizer the King, Saint Stephen, who in the year 1000 had received the royal crown and function from Pope Sylvester.  The Primate Cardinal Mindszenty, was the first public dignitary of the country.

This special role of the Catholic Church in Hungary, just emerging from a victorious battle with the Nazi – Fascist government of Szalassi, set a background into which the Communists did not dare to unleash an immediate frontal attack in the 1940’s. Cardinal Mindszenty’s strong voice and his ability to nourish his flock with his words also held the ‘Hungarian Communist Party ‘ at bay.

But then it happened!

In January 1946 the Communists suddenly tore off their mask.  The first attack was launched against the Church.  False flags and propaganda flew!

On November 19 the secretary of the Primate, Zakar Andras, was seized on the street by the police.  On the same day the dwelling of the Primate was surrounded by a police cordon.

On November 23 the police prohibited the transfer of the remains of Bishop Apor Vilmos, killed by Russian soldiers in his residence in Gyor, from the crypt of the Church of the Carmelites to a tomb erected in the Cathedral.  Fearing a popular demonstration, the Government flooded the city with 200 police agents and called out the fire department to block the main thoroughfares.

On December 23, two priests of the Curia of Esztergom were taken into custody, Rev. Boka Imre, an economist, and the Rev. Fabian Janos, an archivist. Silent Church  Gussoni/Brunel

On the evening of December 26, 1948, Cardinal Mindszenty was arrested.  He was taken to 60 Andrassy St.60-andrassy-avenue-an.jpg

60 Andrassy today.  A museum called ‘The House of terror,’  its cellar, where the tortures and butcheries were carried out still has “the smell of something” which can’t be eliminated.  The ‘hanging posts’ still stand in the gloom.  Looking up towards the extended roof, one can see the word ‘terror’ written backwards.

Cardinal Mindszenty was locked in the cellar cells.  After almost 40 days of submission to a combined drug and psychic “treatment,” he was transformed into a “wax puppet”  download.jpgCardinal Mindszenty at his show trial.

No one has ever known with certainty just what drugs, tortures and abominations were used to reduce Cardinal Mindszenty to this condition.  There exist ample documented proofs that “something” of a terrible, inhuman and shameful nature had happened to him.

The Hungarian Communist Government presented a confession written by the Cardinal in his own handwriting, which was shaky.  It contained 64 errors in spelling which were inconceivable for a man of precision and accuracy.

The Government had no witnesses.  It produced a pipe, supposedly taken from the residence of the Cardinal, which contained incriminating documents.  However, they became the accusers of themselves … because …

A few hours  before his arrest the Cardinal had written a letter which was sent to all the hierarchy in Hungary.  One to each.  Clearly written words about an hour before his arrest say:

“Since I have not taken part in any plot whatsoever, I will never resign.  I will not talk.  If, after this, you should learn that I have admitted this or that, that I have resigned my office (even if this be authenticated with my signature) you must know that such a declaration can only be the consequence of human frailty … In the same manner do I declare null and void any confession which may be attributed to me as of today and thereafter …”  The Church of Silence  Gussoni/Brunello

Cardinal Mindszenty received a life sentence.  During the Hungarian Revolution of 1956 he was freed and became a guest of the American Embassy in Budapest, Hungary.  He languished there another fifteen years during which he was not allowed to speak with anyone in Hungary.  The Embassy was guarded to prevent his being kidnapped.  Books tell of how uplifting was the knowledge to the Hungarian people of his very presence in the Country.  For this reason the Communists wanted him out.

Of great note for our linking matters here, it must be told that there was communication between the American Government, and, the Hungarian Government and … sorrowfully … the Vatican  due to his presence and its’ effect on the Hungarian people who loved him so.  He was a stalwart reminder of the Catholic Church.

But, someone loved Communism more than they loved the Roman Catholic Church! Was it the Pope who condoned the Treaty of Metz which was abided by at Vatican II?  The treaty in which the Catholic Church agreed not to mention Communism if the Russians could attend?

Here is more light on the question of Pope Paul VI and whether he approved of Communism:

  1. In preparation for a visit to the United States of Pope Paul VI in 1964 there was to be a meeting between President Johnson and the Pope.  One of the talking points was “that it really is time for the Cardinal to be removed from our Legation in Budapest. ” Only the Pope can do it  and even he will have trouble.”  October 3, 1965 Washington D.C. 11AM       Office of the Historian: Foreign Relations of the United Staates 1964-1968, Volume XII, Western Europe  302  Memorandum From the Presidents special Assistant for National Security Affairs (Bundy) to President Johnson   https://history.state.gov/historicaldocuments/frus1964-68v12/d302April 21,
  2. 1971 Peter Janos, Hungarian Foreign Minister visited Pope Paul VI for 45 minutes.  They spoke in French re:  Church State Relations in Hungary.  The Pope told his Secretary, Cardinal Casaroli (communist) that ” he was satisfied with the meeting and Peter was cordial.”  Peter:  wants “Holy See to impose on Mindszenty absolute silence should he ever leave Hungary”  LOT Files  https://history.state.gov/historicaldocument/frus1949v08/d57
  3. SUBJECT:  CARDINAL MINDSZENTY                                                                                         Cardinal Casaroli in a press conference about a solution to this problem:   “Pope is anxious for a solution to this problem.”  Cardinal Casaroli was unwilling to reveal his details about June 6 meeting with Paul VI other than “Pope not overly optimistic about dislodging Mindszenty but willing to give it a try.” Historical Documents as above pdf.  page 66

I leave it to you, the reader, to guess what is going on.  Pope Paul VI, by some kind of a ruse, had Cardinal Mindszenty removed from the Embassy for a trip to Rome.  They embraced.  They had dinner.  They said Mass together.

While the Pope ‘entertained’ the battle weary, but not beaten Cardinal Mindszenty, the reign of Janos Kador, the Communist, began to take giant strides in Hungary.

Cardinal Mindszenty was never to see his people again or to set foot on the soil of his beloved homeland.  His betrayal was imminent. Pope Paul VI tried to strip him of his title as Primate of Hungary and exiled him.  Cardinal Mindszenty however refused to give up his title of Primate of Hungary.  This fact always had intense meaning for the Hungarian people.

Cardinal Mindszenty is Incorrupt!

It is confident that he is in his heavenly home.  He died in 1975 and was buried in a Marian Cemetery in Hungary.  In 1991 his body was interred and found incorrupt.mindszenty.jpg

This picture of the incorrupt body of Jozsef Mindszenty is from the official website of the cause for his sainthood.  It is on a letter addressed to Andrew Rebel.

Dear Mr. Rebel,                                                                                                                                         Yes this is the photo of the body of Cardinal Mindszensy.  He was disinterred in 1991 and it was incorrupt.  Signed  Briggita Nagy, Assistant                                                                            Further information can be obtained from the website of Bishop Emeritus of Corpus Christi Texas, U.S.A   Bishop Rene Gracida  https://abyssusabyssum.wordpress.com

A word about Cardinal Zen.  We pray that he does not have to go through the same horrendous suffering.  Were the words of Francis a shaded threat on the part of Pope Francis … that he did not want to “create a Mindszenty case over ” Cardinal Zen.  With the tendency of the Holy Father to be lenient … approving … of Communism, we fear for the good Chinese Cardinal.  Would Francis do that?

We love you, Cardinal Zen.   You talk just like Cardinal Mindszenty did.  I have some of his homilies and indeed the language is strikingly similar.

Pray for us, Most Holy Cardinal Jozsef  Mindszenty …

 

 

 

Blood Drenched Altars: A Catholic Commentary (Excerpt from The Book)

This tragedy, involving the Mexican Government and the Cristeros, has been played on many stages.  By a multitude of different backgrounds.  In all the languages of men.  By a host of understudies whose souls were in tune with hers.

Christopher Hollis, in his ‘Thomas More’, has unveiled one of these tragedies for the understanding of men and women of the English tradition.

Speaking of the effects of More’s execution on the English nation he wrote:  They killed holiness.

Before that collosal fact …that they killed holiness … all the excuses and the explanations fade into nothingness.images 9.jpg

They Killed Holiness!!!

It is the mark of a Christian Saint that he possesses the imagination that jumps back across a thousand or two thousand years of history.  His whole life is lived under an excitement similar to that of the first disciples when they first heard the amazing news that the Tomb was empty.  To him that news is so amazing that he never forgets to be surprised at it.  He never comes to take it for granted that Christ died for him.

The news is so important that it is mere madness to give one’s mind to any other business and thus neglect it.  Such a man was Thomas More – a man of the world, a lawyer, and a statesman, but one to whom law and statesmanship were important only in so far as they could be used to further the purposes of Christ.

There was not room in England for such a man and the Tudor state.  No one can write about Mexico without writing the tragedies of many Mores.

If there was no room in the Tudor estate for even one Thomas More, there is no room in the Calles state for the many of Mexico.  If there is no room for them, there is no room for the Church.

She is always in the wings.  Another arm may lower the curtain but, since history repeats itself, her arm will raise it again.  For the Church can never go out of Mexico any more than a mother can go out of the life of her child.

A struggle against religion is a struggle against the incomprehensible and unreachable.  It is a struggle against the spirit in its most intimate and profound form and it is now proved that in this struggle the arms of the State, even the strongest, do not succeed in inflicting mortal blows on the Church which comes out triumphantly from the hardest of tests.

adoring_angels.jpg    The state cannot be victorious against the incomprehsible and unreachable.

The state can be victorious only in conflict with another State.  It can then conclude its victory by pressing a change of regime, for instance, a territorial cession or the disarming of any army, or other earthly things. The state can not be victorious against the incomprehensible and unreachable.
