Tolerance applies only to persons, but never to truth. Intolerance
applies only to truth, but never to persons. Tolerance applies to erring;
intolerance to the error. Archbishop Fulton Sheen
Message from the Manager
to the fourth edition of our Newsletter for 2017. April has been a
joyful month with the greatest feast of the year, Easter Sunday,
falling in the middle and the wonderful new feast of Divine Mercy
following a week later. The Resurrection of Christ gives us the
beautiful theological virtue of Hope, without which we could not
survive. We could not imagine what life would be like if we did not
have hope in the Risen Christ. He came to save us, to open the gates of
Heaven so that we have the unimaginable joys of our homeland, Heaven,
to which can now look forward. God has given us the feast of Divine
Mercy to let us know that, though He is a just God, His Mercy is
endless. It is a timely reminder of the powerful Sacrament of
Confession. The graces of this sacrament bring us back to the heart of
Christ. It does not matter whether we are hardened sinners who have not
been to Confession for thirty years or we go as frequently as possible,
God loves each and every one of us uniquely and rejoices when we go to
Confession. He waits patiently for each of us to come to Him and
unburden our souls.
2017 is a special year. It is one hundred years since Our Blessed
Mother appeared to the three young children at Fatima. Jacinta,
Francisco and Lucia were given the great privilege of seeing and
hearing her. Each of the children was inspired in slightly different
ways and took on special responsibilities: the humble Francisco was
determined to console Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament (and was told
to say many rosaries), the lively, stubborn Jacinta became more serious
and performed many sacrifices, offering up her tremendous sufferings to
save souls from going to hell and Lucia, asked to be educated at Our
Lady’s request remaining on earth to spread the message of the apparitions.
This message of praying the rosary daily, performing sacrifices and
offering up our sufferings to the Immaculate Heart of Mary (and the
Sacred Heart of Jesus) is a message of peace. At present the media
indicates that the world is on the brink of a nuclear war so let us
prove them wrong and intensify our rosaries for world peace.
On a happier note, there will be incredible celebrations at Fatima this
year on 13th May, the date of Our Lady’s First Appearance. It is
significant that she first appeared in May as it is Our Lady’s month;
her final appearance was on the same date in October, the month of the
Holy Rosary. We have received word that the Pope plans to canonize
Jacinta and Francisco. It is expected that a million and a half people
will be present. Special rosaries have been commissioned to commemorate
this wonderful event and we have some available. The recently
published, superbly presented book, Fatima Mysteries, has arrived from
Ignatius Press. For those who are travelling to Fatima, CTS has
produced “Fatima, A Pilgrim’s Companion”, which contains the story of
Fatima, prayers, meditations and excellent description of Fatima, the
Chapel, Basilica, Museum, Aljustrel, Cabeco, the Parish Church of St
Anthony and much more. There is a small map but there is not enough
detail for it to be used if this is your first pilgrimage there.
We extend our heartfelt thanks to all our readers and supporters and
sincerely ask that you please continue so that our wonderful apostolate
can continue. May God bless you all in this beautiful Centenary Year of
Our Lady of Fatima.

During the apparitions Our Lady asked Lucia to learn to read and write
which she did under the guidance of the Dorothean Sisters. Thus when the
Bishop of Fatima-Leiria requested Sr Lucia to write down everything she
could remember about Jacinta she was able to do so. These memoirs are
further developed in Book II, both are easy to read in Sr Lucia's own very

"The tragedies foretold in Fatima did not come to an end with the
demise of Communism. The crisis has not been resolved. From a certain point
of view it is still as serious as it ever was, as it is primarily a crisis
of faith, hence a moral and social crisis." — Pope Benedict XVI
To celebrate the 100th anniversary of these important apparitions and
messages for the modern world, this author-photographer team travelled
throughout Europe to tell the story of Fatima and its impact on the destiny
of individuals and nations. With stunningly beautiful full-colour
photographs on every page, and in-depth detail and insights on all aspects
of the story and message of Fatima, they probe the mysteries of Fatima
thoroughly. This excellent, magnificent book comes in a sturdy hardcover
and is lavishly illustrated; it is highly recommended.
Mary is Our
Blessed Mother and the month of May is dedicated to her. She wants to lead us to her Son, Jesus and daily recitation
of the rosary is a light that will lead us to peace; it is a light that

profound' prayer and to contemplate the depths of Christ's love. The Holy Rosary Illustrated (Hirten) $4.50

wrecked catechetics: Christian ‘praxis’, no doctrine but
only life-situational catechesis and discovery method.
wrecked the liturgy: abandoned the Sense of the Sacred,
also rubrics and imposed their own ‘relevance’.
wrecked morality: situation ethics with dilemma

are a chameleon facet of the Duped Mutants. They run with the hare and
hunt with the hounds. They claim to be orthodox in faith & morals,
but always uphold the right of the Trendies to hold dissident
views contrary to the Magisterium. Thus they pave the way and assist the
Trendies to operate.
strongly resent, and become angry at any challenge to the orthodoxy of
the Trendies — polarizing they called it in the 1970s, divisive
in the 1980s. By the 1990s, they held an Anglican-style comprehensiveness—“it’s
a big Church” — or perchance they no longer bothered with verbal
ju-jitsu because they had become senior ecclesiastics misusing their
authority to defend their friends, the Trendies.

even priests and bishops are targeted by Change Agents to programme them

humanism. They have been reprogrammed to use classroom techniques and
texts directed to that end.
THE CHANGE AGENT

and Catholic schools suffer from both Duped Mutants and Change Agents.
They use the Evolution Hypothesis, Personal Development, Sex
(mis)Education, and now the so-called Safe Schools
Coalition with its Role Play and humiliation
to make the pupils into secular humanists without God or
morality. The evidence is everywhere.
A Secular Humanist is usually an atheist or at least an agnostic. Some
follow the psychiatry of Jung and hold that religious beliefs are not
objectively true but may be useful illusions for a neurotic or a crutch
agenda is furthered by teaching methods which do not directly impart
ideas but insinuate falsehoods. They re-program the minds of
then students with ideas, ideals and attitudes which have not been
weighed by conscience in its interaction of intellect with his will, but
persuade his feelings.
Trendies are simply religious Change Agents. They surfaced in Australia
in the early 1970s as the descendants of the Modernists Their message and
methods were analyzed and condemned by St. Pius X in 1907 in Pascendi.
He accurately described today’s Trendies: they often appear uncertain,
even contradict themselves and speak ambiguously. These are tactics for
insinuating a new doctrine or raising the doubt on an old one. If
challenged, the Trendies can usually step sideways and quote something
else they said or wrote: “What I really meant was...” — or like a
cricketer getting his bat inside the crease when in danger of being run
term Modernist emphasizes their psychological motivation, their
craving to be accepted by other ‘scholars’. But the term also denotes the
content, or rather, lack of content, in their message, for it is largely
a rejection of what Catholics have always been bound to believe. There
are few affirmations in the Trendy/Modernist creed: it mainly lists their
disbeliefs. They are relativists and nihilistic.
their loyalty is not to the truth but rather to a political correctness
of the cognoscenti, their fellow “enlightened” thinkers. They
make popularity a Christian virtue, but not popularity with the despised
common people, only with their fellow Trendies.
Dogmatic Theologians began to cast doubt upon, or openly deny miracles.
The Resurrection of Christ was redefined: “His physical remains which
were placed in the tomb were not involved in His Resurrection —
his bones may still be lying around Palestine.” This links with a similar
denial of the virginity of His Mother in conceiving Him.
Moral Theologians are relativists, too in their worldly disregard for
objective morality, the Ten Commandments from God, and the Theology of
the Body. They reject Humanae Vitae, ignore the Catechism of
the Catholic Church and Veritatis Splendor on Church
authority to teach morals.
Trendies have the itching ears
syndrome:- For the time will come when people
will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will
accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own likings, and will
turn away from listening to the truth and wander into myths.2 Timothy 4:3-4.
STRATEGY of the Trendies and
strategy is a reductionist religion to please modernity, vainly hoping to
win converts. Resistance to them is now strong and
better organized, as the New Evangelization takes hold, the real Good
News. TACTICS used by Trendies and Semi-Trendies
A general tactic is the misuse
of group dynamics. In itself, Group Dynamics is
simply a fact of human interaction. Yet it can be used as a
manipulative technique, to engender error and promote sin.

seminaries; in State, Catholic and private schools; in special courses
and lectures; and particularly when breaking up into small discussion
groups with leaders well-trained as Duped Mutants.
group facilitator, or the lecturer, exploits the fear of being
thought different, to tempt the orthodox to abandon their
beliefs: “Of course, no one believes that anymore,” and looks
around scornfully to intimidate any protest. He dismisses as childish,
and suited only “to immature pre-scientific minds of the Middle Ages”,
such revealed realities as angels, original and actual sin, Hell,
transubstantiation, etc. All are subtly or openly dismissed: human
respect is a potent weapon.

beliefs: “You’re insecure about change, aren’t you?” Counter it by
contrary rhetoric: “You’re insecure with revealed religion,
aren’t you?” Challenge a question with your own question!
Or proceedings open with a declaration that no one may
contradict anything said by anyone else. This clears the way for the
Change Agents and Duped Mutants to attack, ridicule or weaken “what
we used to believe”, in favour of the enlightened majority riding a
newchurch wave — and heading for a dumper.
A false dichotomy is alleged between pre-Vatican II and
post-Vatican II, by slipping in caricatures: “We used to think
Baptism took away original sin but now we know it’s a celebration of
NEWMAN ON THE TRENDIES
In 1879 Leo XIII made Blessed John
Henry Newman a cardinal, and in his official speech, Newman said:
one great mischief I have from the first opposed myself. For thirty,
forty, fifty years [i.e. back in his Anglican days] I have resisted to
the best of my powers the spirit of Liberalism in religion. Never did
Holy Church need champions against it more sorely than now, when alas, it
is an error overspreading, as a snare, the whole earth...” Hence:-
“Liberalism in religion is the doctrine that there is no positive truth
in religion but that one creed is as good as another... It is
inconsistent with any recognition of any religion as true. It teaches
that all are to be tolerated, for all are matters of opinion. Revealed
religion is not a truth but a sentiment and a taste and it is the right
of each individual to make it say just what strikes his fancy...”

YOUR ENNEAGRAM in full technicolour
AN ENNEAGRAM is the set of nine
personality types in Jungian psychology tennea is nine in
Greek). Human faces are also homely indicators: it’s amazing how many
colours the human face can turn. This study of the technicolour enneagram
may need adaptation for those whose basic skin pigmentation is olive,
red, yellow, black or brown, etc.
FLESH-coloured is normal. People who
stay this colour are stable, though not necessarily virtuous.
GREY, especially ashen grey, is the
colour of shock, and is always a physical condition, even if brought on
WHITE indicates loss of blood from
the face, and is due to sickness or emotions such as anger.
RED indicates excess blood due to
fever, alcohol, anger.
PINK, especially a change to pink
from something paler, indicates embarrassment or shame.
BLACK means wrath or evil intent.
GREEN accompanies sea-sickness and
other nausea, and is also attributed to the emotional nausea of envy.
BLUE indicates intense cold and
shallow breathing (oxygen deprivation) and is always a physical

of colour enneagrams suggest that the hypothesis of nine colours breaks
down because, they say, there is a tenth possibility, for a face to turn
purple with apoplexy.
Lord and Vatican II spoke of discerning “the signs of the times”, so this
discernment of colour in faces of friends and foes is highly recommended.
