Fatima Blog: Buddhist relics in Catholic monastery!

“I am the way, the truth, and the life…”  Jesus Christ

Warning to Catholics  

1. See – The facts

A world tour of Buddhist propaganda has now come to Peru. The news would have no greater significance if it were not, as was widely reported, the fact that the “tour” will include a visit to Cusco from February 26 to 28, during which relics of Buddha and some of his main followers will be exhibited in a certainly unexpected place: the Convent of Santo Domingo!

Although Buddhism is not presented as a religion but rather as a philosophy and spirituality, in fact it has a strong religious content, being a branch of pantheistic Gnosticism, which is the doctrine most opposed to the Gospel because it denies the very concept of one single, personal and absolute God. This denial makes Buddhism, in its essence, an anti-Christian belief.

Furthermore, Buddhist currents such as Lamaism from Tibet – where many of the said relics come from — worship a series of “protector devils” to whom even human sacrifices are rendered, including the practice of cannibalism.[1]

2. Judge – The Analysis

How, then, can Catholic premises be made available to promote this belief opposed to the true Faith? This is puzzling, especially considering that, as the Scriptures teach, “all the gods of the Gentiles [pagans] are devils” (Ps. 95:5); therefore, St. Paul says, “But the things which the heathens sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God. And I would not that you should be made partakers with devils. You cannot drink the chalice of the Lord, and the chalice of devils: you cannot be partakers of the table of the Lord, and of the table of devils” (I Cor. 10:20-21).

Considering the definitive statement of our Lord Jesus Christ: “He who is not with me is against me” (Luke, 11, 23), we have gone from bewilderment to confusion. Do the authorities of the Convent of Santo Domingo not realize the tremendous religious turmoil into which they cast the faithful by turning the historic Cuzco church into a propaganda vehicle for a false belief? This is all the more so since it will not be a simple display of the said relics, but they will practice Buddhist rituals such as “blessings” with supposed healing effects to attract the unwary, and others. Do the authorities of the convent not fear that these cults, as Saint Paul says, desecrate the convent by “sacrificing to demons and not to God”?

How all this recalls the famous pronouncements by H.H. Pope Paul VI, taken up by his successors John Paul II and Benedict XVI, about the mysterious process of “self-destruction” that affected the Church after Vatican II, making the “smoke of Satan enter the temple of God!” [2]

3. Act – The Duty of Catholics

St. Dominic founded the Order of Preachers to spread the only Truth and refute the errors against it, never to compromise with them! His first major victory was the extinction of the Albigensian heresy, which arose precisely from Eastern Gnosticism, of which Buddhism is a branch. Faced with such a bafflingly serious deviation from its mission, as seen above, the Catholic faithful cannot stand idly by. We must manifest, respectfully but firmly, our disagreement and rejection of that disgraceful display.

Through the sacrament of Confirmation we become “soldiers of Christ,” that is, the Holy Spirit gives us the gift of fortitude to bear witness and defend the Faith. And God will ask us accounts for the good or bad use we make of that precious gift. This is a great opportunity to show that we have not received it in vain.

Let’s let us respectfully make our protest heard. Join it right now by sending a message to the authorities of the Convent of Santo Domingo, the Prior of the Dominican Fathers, and the diocesan authority, asking them to take measures to stop this desecration and make sure that it never happens again.

If you prefer, you can copy the text suggested below:

4. THE PROTEST (copy and send to the addresses indicated)

 

Deeply shocked, I deplore the offense done to my Catholic faith by converting the convent of Santo Domingo into a propaganda venue for pagan beliefs diametrically opposed to the Faith in Jesus Christ. I believe that such an exhibition is a very serious and unacceptable desecration and therefore request that it be canceled and never a Catholic campus in our city be used again for such events.

Sincerely,
(name and ID number)

Undoubtedly, the religious confusion is the most serious aspect of the terrible current crisis.

May Our Lady of the Rosary, Queen and Patron of Peru, preserve the noble Peruvian nation from this confusion.  May She grant all Catholics the wisdom and determination to overcome it.

One thought on “Fatima Blog: Buddhist relics in Catholic monastery!”

  1. I think this is a good example of a false universalism that has infected our Catholic people; It is a universalism that seems to assume that the Catholic faith is somehow in the wrong or unenlightened, and needing influence from the “mysterious religions” so that it can be “truly enlightened”. Like said above–gnostic ideas rear their ancient heretical heads again! I once saw a Priest celebrate Mass with a loaf of bread, who walked away from the Altar during the words of institution, and broke the loaf in the midst of the congregation, scattering particles of consecrated species everywhere. Now–try to convince me that this priest believed in the real presence of Christ in The Mass. Clearly he did not–and was teaching others to not believe. And Jesus said: “Temptations will come, but woe to Him who does the tempting.” And clearly, the priest exhibitting Buddhist relics, does not believe that Jesus is The Christ. Our Lady of Fatima told us that is was time to get real. Well, lets do that! Let’s “Catholic Up” as Dr. Phil might say.
