Why I no Longer Reject Vatican II and the Traditional Catholic Priests or Receiving Sacraments from Them (On Baptism of Desire, Baptism of Blood, Natural Family Planning, Una Cum etc.)

As for over the last two years, I have changed many of my old positions and do no longer adhere to the strict interpretation as expressed in many of our old articles. Now I follow the Doctors, Saints and Theologians of the Church, my conscience, and the teaching of St. Alphonsus, which teaches us that it is the law of conscience that determines whether an uncertain action is lawful or not. Therefore, if you feel good in your conscience about approaching this or that priest for Mass or the Sacraments (even a Vatican II priest) then you can do so. Therefore, if a position is uncertain or unclear to you (such as Baptism of Desire or Blood), do what you think is right according to your conscience. No one can force you to embrace an uncertain position under pain of sin, and therefore, do not worry about approaching a priest you feel good about approaching, if you feel you need to receive the consolations of Mass and the Sacraments from this priest.

Please read this article, which more fully explains the situation to another questioner:


Even though I said in this article (above) that the Vatican II priests are not validly ordained and hence not real priests, I in fact am not sure that this is the case anymore. Therefore, you may have a different opinion, or you may share this position. Many in the traditional camp have varied positions on this topic, and no one can force the other to accept his or her position under pain of sin. Therefore, follow your conscience and do what you think is right.

So the the question as to where you should go to mass I answer: Go to any mass or priest that you feel good about approaching according to your conscience. If you feel it is right to go to this or that mass and receive the sacraments from this or that priest, then do so. Your conscience is clean, and that is all that matters.

I also do no longer adhere to the position that Vatican II or the Protestants, Muslims, Buddhists or various Traditionalists Groups and Peoples etc. are heretical or damned, or that the various teachings, Saints and adherents to Vatican II (and other canonized by Vatican II) such as Saint Mother Theresa or Saint Pope John Paul II was heretical or damned or not Catholic (or not the Pope) – or that they are unworthy of this title. Why have I changed position? That is simply because the law of conscience is true, and because damnation is something evil, and because Vatican II is more open to the law of conscience and universal salvation, whereas the pre-Vatican II Church was not.

For more information on this topic and why I have changed position, and why damnation is evil and why the Vatican II Church teaches something good with being more open to universal salvation and the law of conscience, see these posts (please see both of them, they are really important):

https://against-all-heresies-and-errors.blogspot.com/2019/05/q-why-damnation-and-eternal-torments-is-evil.html

Simply said, salvation for everyone is something infinitely desirable and endlessly good, whereas eternal damnation in torments and fire is the most evil thing that could ever be imagined, and it is stupid to believe (and just silently accept) that our fellow human beings must be damned simply because they held a different faith, or simply because God wills it, or only because they failed in their life. That is why I admire Vatican II now, since they have distanced themselves from repressing and evil teachings like an eternal Hell with torments and fire for our fellow human brothers, sisters, fathers, mothers, children and neighbours! and now, they (the Church), instead of focusing on unforgiveness and damnation, the Catholic Church (which is the Church of God) focuses on forgiveness, hope and salvation for everyone – which is an eternal true and endlessly good doctrine, since it follows true justice and our conscience which wills eternal good towards everyone (even ones enemies, that they may become good so that we may be able to love each other and become best friends), and not only towards ones own.

Concerning our "Various Traditional Catholic Issues and Groups Exposed" topic. This was the expression of my old beliefs, but is also the still current beliefs of my other old co-worker (or co-owner of the websites) that I have come to distance myself from. Even though the owner of the "prophecyfilm12" mail address still espouses those same views (the strict and old) I do not, and I would tell you that they (the Traditional and Vatican II Catholic groups and people we formerly condemned) are Catholics (i.e., those who believe in Baptism of Desire and Blood, NFP, Una Cum and Pope Francis etc.) and that they can be approached for the Sacraments and Mass if you feel good about doing so and you believe this is the right and Catholic choice.

One will simply not become a heretic for embracing (even obstinately) Baptism of Desire or Blood when Saints and even Popes and the Church tacitly approves of it and even formally approves of it in its teachings (such as in Code of Canon Laws and Catechisms and Theological Manuals and Books). So the Church teaches Baptism of Desire and Blood (but not perhaps dogmatically in the sense MHFM and others would like to have it), but we are heretics for believing in it? No, that is not true. If Pope Pius XII could believe in and teach Baptism of Desire and even NFP (which he did) then so can we. And it does not matter if we "know better" or have "been corrected" by others, such as by groups as ourselves or Most Holy Family Monastery, – for we are entitled to our own opinion on this matter if we desire to adhere to the teachings of the Saints and Pope Pius XII who all taught Baptism of Desire. Only when the Church has formally condemned Baptism of Desire and Blood or NFP (and such like controversial topics) and not given any more room for doubt, would it be unlawful to embrace those positions (unless, of course, you have a valid reason to doubt or deny those teachings, such as the teaching on Hell, which is an evil teaching and an evil thing). But has this happened? Has Popes really condemned Baptism of Desire or Natural Family Planning in name so that there are no arguments among Catholics about what is the truth? No, they have not! Why else all the arguments and differences in opinions? Popes such as Pius XII even spoke of BOD and NFP or Rhythm as Doctrine. So what does it tell us? That the Pope did not view the quotes as we (as in my old views) or MHFM does. It is easy to take a dogma or encyclical and just interpret it 100% strict and even dismiss all Saints and Theologians of the Church, but it is not wise to do so. When all the Theologians and Doctors of the Church teach Baptism of Desire and Blood, then we need to listen. If none of them interprets the dogmas as we or MHFM does, then we are free to accept their explanations and reject that of others. And it does not matter how "convincing" MHFM or anyone else is or however much they condemn you, – if you are uncertain (and you have a right to be and to remain uncertain, for the Church does not teach that you must accept the explanations of random people or be guilty of mortal sin) and if your conscience feel good about adhering to Baptism of Blood or Desire (both of which are doctrines which the Church approved theologians teaches), then you are free to adhere to their explanations. I suppose even you see the logic and reason in this position, i.e, that you are free to embrace the approved theologians' position on any topic that your conscience agrees with, and reject the position (or feel uncertain about without incurring sin) the position of non-approved sources, until the Church has formally and undeniably settled this matter.

If Thomas Aquinas (approved Saint and Doctor of the Church) could be saved believing in Baptism of Desire, then so can you, even if we or MHFM condemns you, since you are entitled to be unsure when the Church seems to contradict Herself by both teaching and condemning it, – if you now believe the doctrine could be condemned. Otherwise, the true explanation is that Baptism of Desire is not condemned, and that MHFM and others are over-interpreting the encyclicals and councils.

In conclusion: On topics that are uncertain and unsettled or sensitive (such as Mass or the Sacraments) follow your conscience and ask the advice of others, such as priests and friends, and do not only strictly follow the strict interpretations of online theologians (or the so-called "the only ones you can trust") that often over-interprets things and "only follow their own ways" to the rejection of everyone else, even if they are Popes, Priests, Monks, Approved Theologians, Catechisms or even Code of Canon Laws.

You have a right to be uncertain and to adhere to something that you believe is true (such as the approved sources). Therefore, do not worry about going to a specific Priest or Mass if you desire to do this, or to adhere to this or that teaching if you feel more comfortable in embracing it according to your beliefs and conscience. For if your conscience is clean on this topic, then you are acting right and even do a good thing, since you follow justice and honesty.

  1. I think everything typed was very logical.

    But, consider this, suppose you were to write a
    awesome headline? I am not saying your content is not good., however suppose you added something that makes people desire more?
    I mean "Why I no Longer Reject Vatican II and the Traditional Catholic Priests or Receiving Sacraments from Them (On Baptism of Desire, Baptism of Blood, Natural Family Planning, Una Cum etc.)" is
    kinda plain. You could look at Yahoo's front page and watch how they write post headlines to grab
    people interested. You might add a related video or a related pic
    or two to get people interested about everything've written. Just my opinion,
    it could bring your website a little livelier.

    1. The only thing that is shameful and stupid is to see Christians say that favouring the salvation of every man, woman and child, including all the evil or satanic.

      What is evil or satanic with fighting for everyone's eternal salvation and happiness? There is nothing evil with it, rather, it is you who are evil in promoting eternal damnation, torment, unlove, unhope and unhappiness, you fool!

      If it is to do Satan's work to rebell against an evil God and to save everything so that no one will be eternally damned or unhappy, then yes, Satan has had his part in this work for sure and for that I am eternally grateful and happy ;)

  5. You have become a coward and everything you were devoted to expose and fight. You are a fraud.

    1. PART 1

      If I am a coward I will strive to better my self. However, when it comes to thinking of something better than what God has done, I cannot be accused of being a coward, since I am a heretic according to his own law, which means I would be damned and that is also the reason why you yourself have judged me as condemned and as I will burn in Hell unless I "repent and convert", and as a matter of fact, this would also happen to me if God now is a Dictator and damns people for eternity!

      However, since the law of conscience and true justice of honest laws are true even if a God wants otherwise through being unjust, I am not in actuality damned, even if it might look like that on paper, because God cannot actually damn me for being more just than him, as should be obvious, since God also claims to be just and honest, and hence, he must be the one who comply with us and not the other way around. Hence, in the end, there will be no damnation, and everyone will be saved, just as Origen (c. 184 – c. 253) taught centuries ago!

      However, I can understand that most people will be afraid to fight against God for the salvation of the damned sinners, since they themselves fear being damned and labelled heretics (I mean, who wants to be eternally damned and live in eternal torments and misery?). Hence, their fear and unwillingness to stand up to a justice above God's injustice and evil Hell is understandable, although not excusing according to true conscience or justice since following true justice and conscience should not be neglected just because you fear of being persecuted by it or even damned even if the persecutor is God himself.

      Truly, blessed be those persecuted for justice sake, for great will be their reward in Heaven! (Matthew 5:12)

    2. PART 2

      Also, if no one truly fights for justice and everyone is afraid, how will ever an injustice be overthrown, and true justice prevail and take its place? That is why justice is such an important virtue that must never be neglected, because if no one is truly just, no true justice, honesty or love will exist for everyone (that is why men on earth desires to be just, so that our society may become a better and more peaceful place, so that we all can become more lovable and understanding with each other's differences). And if God's evil Hell does not prove this fact by it self that an injustice leads to evil -- i.e., of what happens when one lets someone become or remain unjust without hindering it -- then I don't know what does! I mean, what if evil Dictators like Stalin or Hitler was not rebelled, prevented, or fought against or killed? Who knows what kind of worse world we would have lived in now if Communism and Nazism had succeeded, and not been defeated. You see, that is the evil fruit of not being just and by being a true coward not daring to fight against injustices!

      St. Maximin Kolbe did not cower away fighting against the Nazis even though he was killed in the end for doing so (he even offered to die in the place of a persecuted Jew in the Concentration Camp he was sent to and the soldiers accepted his kind offer!). Hence, if anyone every desires to prevent us from being just or doing justice or if they try to forbade us from doing so, let us rebell and not do as they wish, because an honest and just and lovable man like Kolbe and others will be fighting for true justice and love even if evil people in authority condemns us for it! That is just how it works with honesty and a good conscience, i.e., that it forces us to be just even if we are condemned for it when this is what we truly believe in and are not cowards looking after own own interests to the neglect of our brothers and sisters and children!, and the same justice and fighting spirit applies with God himself if God now is not completely just on any point and he needs to be rebelled against, just like with any other dictator like Hitler or Stalin. And the point in which God is clearly and obviously unjust about is eternal Hell and damnation, since no one in actuality desires this to happen to our fellow brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers, the elderly or our children, and also angels, animals and all other spirits, but rather, everyone desires their ultimate happiness, love, hope for the better, conversion from evil and salvation!, and not damnation or eternal unforgiveness and torments!

    3. PART 3

      Now the only logical solution to this evil doctrine of eternal damnation -- since the salvation of every creature is without measure in importance and more important than God's own will if he desires them evil, and also because love, hope and forgiveness is a truth and justice above even God himself if he denies this truth with the untruth of unlove, unhope, unforgiveness and eternal damnation! -- is to rebell against God on this point and bring forward, with unrelenting force!, a truer justice above his own Dictatorial behavior or "justice", and instead make him comply with us -- even trough force if he refuses --, since we are right and he is not! And that is exactly what I am trying to do and what I have done.

      Even God's Church on Earth, the Vatican II, has started to embrace this position and approach, which is why they have distanced themselves from the doctrines of eternal unforgiveness, unhope, unlove, separation and damnation in insufferable torments and fire with demons torturing and eating us alive[†] FOR ALL ETERNITY!, because they understand in their hearts and consciences that such positions are evil and untrue and against love and forgiveness!, so they the just people and God's Church the Vatican II now embrace a more open approach of Universal Salvation for everyone, even the damned themselves which, according to many in the Vatican II, is an acceptable and true doctrine that even they will be saved. And the more the world and the future progresses, the more this doctrine of forgiveness and salvation will be evolved and expanded upon, and I believe the doctrine of Hell will even become a declared heresy in the future!, since this doctrine of eternal damnation in insufferable torments for our brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers and children in a fiery Hell without ever being forgiven is unjust and a heresy and a crime against humanity and the worst crime ever to have existed or been thought about by anyone at anytime, God or man!

      [†]Yes, the descriptions of Hell are so horrifying that no explanation can enough explain to us how horrifying Hell is; yet do not worry, for the devils and demons will be our friends in the next life and them ours and not our enemies or tormentors, since we forgive and love them just as they forgive and love us! So have hope!

    4. Universalism was condemned by Pope St. Gregory the Great and many Popes, Saints and Doctors of the Church." The more the world progresses " With an estimated 1 billion abortions worldwide since the late 1950's even Stalin and Mao would have a few laughs at that one. You have been given free will and can believe anything or nothing. You can create your own religion as you just have admitted but none of it will bring Salvation. In essence you believe that since Christ through the Apostles the Fathers and Saints of the Church brought us to 1958 and Pope Pius VII that those 1900+ years were filled with error but the "new" religion of Vatican II is perfect accept for a few adjustments that you have made personally. This then is your platform. A platform that has no legs to stand on in Holy Scripture, Dogma or tradition. It is akin to a man dying of a disease but will not take the cure because he doesn't believe he's sick. Not Believing in Hell will save no one. We are all sinners Christ gave us the cure but we have to accept it. Denial of sin is not the cure but the culprit. When we believe that we know better than God and believe we know the mind of God we are just following the evil ones words "You shall not die..." '...you shall be as Gods". There are only two paths one is away from God usually ending in atheism and death. The other is to God and eternal life.

    5. Jay, what is your point? That previous Popes, Saints and Doctors of the Church – and even the bible and dogmas themselves – did wrong and teaches wrong in declaring or thinking that our children must be damned in insufferable torments FOR ALL ETERNITY, and therefore, we should believe in this too, even though we know better!? No, that is not how true justice or true love for your neighbor, mother, father, brother, sister or children works!, but rather, when we understand something better (i.e., that we do not desire this eternal damnation, torment, unlove, unhope and unforgiveness to happen to our loved ones), then we accept this position and change for the better and for the more just approach, for if we do not, we deny love and we deny forgiveness, and also deny justice, because a justice must be embraced and followed as a truth EVEN IF AN UNJUST DICTATOR GOD CONDEMNS US FOR IT! And even you know that this argument is true, i.e., that a truth must be followed and believed in even if someone in power condemns us for it, persecutes us for it and punishes us for it! That is why people rightly resisted Hitler and his evil murders in the Concentration Camps, and why no just person thought what Hitler did was “just” or a “good” thing to happen to these innocent people. Only evil, deceived and brainwashed people would think eternal Hell, or Concentration Camps, torture and murder is “just” or a “good” thing! Wake up blind sheep!

      Why do you think God’s Church today have changed position on eternal damnation, separation, and torments and now embrace a Universal approach of Salvation so that all our brothers, sisters, mothers, fathers and children can be saved and be and live in happiness and love (even if they have another faith than ours!) – ass opposed to ETERNAL torments, unhappiness, unlove, unhope and eternal hate!? That is because THEY HAVE STARTED TO BECOME TRULY JUST AND NOT ONLY BEING BRAINWASHED SHEEP THAT FOLLOW A DICTATOR GOD (LIKE A HITLER OR STALIN) INTO WHATEVER HE TEACHES even if this be completely evil and unjust – such as eternal hell and damnation or evil, unjust tormenting and murdering concentration camps for those we love. World War II and Hitler’s Hell of Concentration Camps was also a wake up call, since when this injustice happened to our dear loved neighbours and others, the Church understood better that suffering and tormenting of our neighbours and loved ones and evil, unjust Dictatorship must not be followed and accepted, but rather rebelled against and condemned, and that evil and injustices must be resisted and fought against!, which is also why the Church and the Popes protected the Jews, the other religious, the homosexuals and handicapped people and other oppressed people that were persecuted, even if the “God” Hitler and his evil oppressing and persecuting “Heaven” on Earth state wanted otherwise. Had the Popes rather obeyed Hitler’s or Stalin’s unjust “laws” like brainwashed, blind and evil sheep, they would have been evil and been branded with eternal shame in the history of the world and also in Heaven and earned our scorn and despise. But now, they are remembered for (such as Pope Pius XII) with honor, since they protected the Jews and other persecuted people!

    6. The argument that previous Popes, Saints and Doctors of the Church did wrong in believing in eternal damnation and separation of our loved ones and separated brethren and therefore, we must continue to believe wrong and unjust also even if we today know better, is stupid and evil and is not true justice, but rather, it is an injustice worthy of condemnation and scorn! I mean, should you really propagate the damnation of our loved ones – even small children – only because ONE GOD desires this when this position is clearly unjust and evil!, why is why no truly just and honest person on earth ever wants this to happen to their neighbour, friend, spouse or child?! That is why only brainwashed “believers” believe in a Hell, whereas unbelievers and a few believers and others who have not let themselves be brainwashed and who dare to think for themselves believe in something better and in forgiveness, since they follow a truer justice, since they desires us better, so that we may live with love, family and friendship, and not in eternal torments, unforgiveness and hate!

      Also, if you are honest, you will easily admit that you do not desire eternal damnation to happen to anyone. So why then believe in it? Stop being afraid of God, and stop denying justice just because you are afraid to be damned! Rather, like the Church of today, believe in something better, and open up a “new” but true faith that is a Faith that must be the true God’s real faith since it it truly Universal (as “Catholic” is truly meant to mean and be, since this is its true meaning. i.e., Universal) rather than believing in Evil just because one evil Dictator “God” of damnation and separation desires so! Also, if the current known “Catholic God” of the Bible and the pre-Vatican II Church is not the true Universal God that desires everyone’s salvation, love and eternal happiness, family and friendship etc., then he must NOT have been the true God to begin with but only an impostor, and the true God is yet to be revealed. That is why I admire Pope Francis when he said he do not believe in the Catholic God (a statement which the Pope was ridiculed and condemned for by Traditionals including myself, since I did not know better back then, so please forgive me, Pope Francis!), he he made this statement, I believe, because this “Catholic God” of the Bible is not truly Universal and actually wants to damn men and women, animals and even children!

    7. I, just like Pope Francis, desires something better for our dear and loved neighbours and friends that all can love and give love and receive love and friendship, and therefore, we who think the same desires something who is truly “Universal” and who wants to forgive and save, and not eternally damn people, angels and souls! Heck this evil God of the Catholic Church even damns unbaptized Children in a Limbo where they will be eternally exuded from the happiness of Heaven (as if unbaptized children are “unworthy” of being saved and must be treated like worthless trash just like black people also were treated unjustly before in time, just because they were born different!) and even animals would not go to Heaven, according to Saint Bridget’s Revelations, and so they would just die and not exist anymore! What a tragedy and eternal loss of true love from all animals if this would be true!*. I mean, how evil is this? There is truly no end to the evil this doctrine of “eternal damnation” and “separation” entails, and people who fail to resist this evil doctrine will break their conscience and become unjust, since they do not resist an obvious evil when it is presented to them. If a person would be evil for not resisting Hitler or the evil he did when this was obvious to them, then why does not the same apply with God or eternal damnation? Answer: it does apply, and the same arguments with Hitler and his injustices is true also with God, because being a Dictator gives no real reason or true justice for being or doing evil unto others; and doing this or that or that your own will desires this and that you think you have the authority and say to make others obey you is also not an argument, because if you are unjust, you must be resisted and deposed and someone else who is truly just take your place, even if you be God himself! So stop being a judger of persons (i.e., stop being a follower of ONE GOD BEFORE TRUE JUSTICE AND LAW AND LOVE AND FORGIVENESS) and start to become just, Jay, because your current approach is truly shameful and unjust, since you advocate and defend that your own children and loved ones, and also your loved neighbors, brothers and sisters, SHOULD BE ETERNALLY DAMNED IN TORMENTS SO EXCESSIVE AND UNMERCIFUL THAT YOU WOULD DIE AND BE UNMERCIFULLY TORMENTED EVEN BY BEHOLDING THEM! If a man or woman tormented someone else, such as men, women, the elderly and children or animals, on earth with unmerciful torments without wanting to forgive them or release them, they would be evil and hated by the world and persecuted and despised; yet in your hypocritical judgment, you excuse a God that does the same AND EVEN WORSE!, since he desires this torment, hate, unlove, unhope and unforgiveness etc. to happen not only for a time, but also for ALL ETERNITY!

    8. [*]The Doctrine that unbaptized children and animals and men and angels or demons will be damned and tormented forever is not true, because everything living has a right to be forgiven and change for the better and to continue living and to give love and to receive our love! And yes, I have been told that our wish will be fulfilled, i.e., that everything will be saved in the end – even the Devil himself! – just as the early Church theologian Origin taught centuries ago! This makes me truly happy since this means true justice and love (that desires forgiveness and love towards others) not only exists on the Earth, but also in Heaven!, and that this injustice of eternal hate, separation, torment and damnation will be overcome and beaten, and not become a tragic fact actually happening to our loved ones. I mean, how could anyone live or exist happy in Heaven when seeing billions and billions and billions of our loved ones (that all can love and give love and receive or love) being tormented in merciful torments in a Hell and we did nothing about it? How could anyone be “just” in Heaven and have a good conscience or be happy if he did see this evil happening to our loved others and yet does nothing about it? No, that is not possible and even Heaven will be an unhappy place and unjust if this injustice and crime against love and humans, souls, animals and angels etc. were allowed to continue, for we all desire goodness for others in our hearts for our dear loved ones and our loved neighbours, – and not eternal torments, unhope and unlove, – and therefore, the doctrine of Hell and damnation is evil and leads to evil and would make us unjust even in Heaven if we did not rebel against God or just “accepted” such a faith ONLY BECAUSE HE DESIRES THIS!. – Truly, if God damns anyone, let me be damned myself even if I would be a Saved person according to his law since I follow justice and conscience, because I refuse to submit to this evil Dictator God of damnation and his evil doctrine of eternal Hell in torments, unhappiness, unlove and unhope, but I will rather always rebel against God and advocate the salvation and forgiveness of everyone, even in Heaven! And for this thought I would also be more just than God himself, since I desire everyone’s goodness, whereas God does not. That is also why God will fall in the judgment and not I; and why I and those who think like me (such as the just on Earth and Origen) will have our will and justice, and not God, since he is unjust!
