The Catholic Church in the West is being beset by the evils of Modernism, both from without, in a world growing daily more secular, and (what is much worse) from WITHIN. There appears to be a concerted effort to water down the Church’s doctrines, her unshakable teachings, thus removing all obstacles or rules that once protected these doctrinal teachings from being abused. Nowadays, those obstinately wishing to indulge their sinful passions, whilst still partaking of the holy Sacraments, are finding plenty of ambiguous, distorted, ecclesiastical documents, and half-baked sermons and ambivalent utterances of the current Pontiff, that can be used or twisted to justify their sacrilegious Communions.
Tomorrow is the eve of All Saints Day, known as “Halloween” (meaning, “the eve of all that is holy”). On All Saints Day the Church Triumphant rejoices in all her blessed saints and angels in glorious array surrounding the Throne of the Triune God in Heaven. Traditionally it has been understood that the evil spirits and demons of Hell, in bitter hatred, make a final thrust the day before to drag as many souls away from God as possible. This gave rise to the crazy, macabre celebrations of Halloween, more popular today among the secular, unchristian masses than the true feast they, in theory, originated from. However, perhaps this is a good moment to bring up this “New Modernist Talking Point” once again….
I’m fairly confident the witch shown in the photo for this article is not a real witch. I am guessing this may be Mass held on Halloween, maybe at a Catholic parish with a school.
BUT, it raises a very good point …
If a “real” witch were to come to Mass and, therefore, a manifest sinner who causes public scandal … should Communion be denied?
According to recently promoted “New Modernist Talking Points,” Holy Communion is not a “prize for the perfect” but “medicine for sinners.”
Practicing witchcraft is not a sin because the witch is just in an “irregular relationship” with satanism and witchcraft.
Those who believe in witchcraft are not disordered but just “differently ordered,” and we should “accompany” them without judging them.
There are, most certainly, many lifelong contributing factors that led to this person deciding to become a witch. So, in that sense, this person is a “victim” of circumstances that make it far too difficult to choose not to be a witch … not being a witch is then an “ideal” to strive for.
Therefore, according to modernists, by all means give the witch Holy Communion.
May God have mercy upon us. With the Church, it’s teachings and it’s prelates falling short of reflecting the true teachings of Jesus, the day can’t be too far off when corrections will be made, with or without vatican’s intervention. I believe it’s no longer within man’s power, or will, to make those corrections. God WILL have HIS say, make no mistake.
Isn’t this an oxymoron question?? 1. Why would a real witch want to receive communion? 2. If a real one approached for communion, would that person reject the Body, because that would be a contradiction to the witch’s soul? 3. If the witch put the Body in her / his mouth, wouldn’t she spit it out or throw it up? 4. If the priest doesn’t know about the approaching witch, he is innocent of giving the Body to her, unless she reveals herself at the moment, then he would need to make an immediate decision!
Correct me if this isn’t logical or practical.
“There appears to be a concerted effort to water down the Church’s doctrines, her unshakable teachings,”
If the Church’s teachings really are unshakable, then perhaps we should stop all this seemingly endless whining. The teachings will be just fine.
No way they can be shook, is there?
Put witches on the bonfire, the good old Trad way. If they don’t burn, they aren’t witches, so we can let them go.
Mary’s right – blatant oxymornity here. Might be even sillier than the “Satan as Liar.” post a few days ago. But then, maybe it’s not. What do others think?
“God WILL have HIS say, make no mistake.”
Course He will, Nev – that’s His job. So let’s all relax, and leave it to Him.
I believe Fr Heilman is using the term “witch” in a slightly humourous way here, seeing as how it’s Halloween tomorrow. He’s saying that real witches are not those of children’s stories who go about on broomsticks with pointed hats and making spells, 😉, but those who defy Catholic teachings on how to receive Holy Communion worthily, i.e., you should not be in a state of mortal sin.
And Toad’s offerings?
Bah, not worth bothering about…

Well, we’ve been saying this for 500 years, “Holy Communion is not a “prize for the perfect” but “medicine for sinners.” For us Lutherans it is doctrine. But then we also say,
“Therefore, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an
unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of
the Lord. A man ought to examine himself before he eats of the bread
and drinks of the cup. For anyone who eats and drinks without recognizing
the body of the Lord eats and drinks judgment on himself.”
I Corinthians 11:27-29 (NIV)
And there is the answer straight from the Apostle Paul.
Sorry Kathleen, I didn’t think about Halloween, nor did I catch the irony. Oops. But I do think my logic was valid if it was a true situation at Communion.
I have consistently recommended The Devils Final Battle by Fr. Paul Kramer which goes into depth about the western church a good bit and the Communist/Fatima Party Line in the “Vatican Apparatus” that a lot of us Traditionalists term the “Novus Ordo” or New Order. I also recommend just because you brought it up, the blog “Novus Ordo Messes” on my site. As I believe the modernist camp as striven to leave no stone unturned in the ruthless trampling of all considered orthodox and holy. God Bless you!
If it was truly a Catholic priest or Mass would you have this issue, if someone was so bold as to try and disgrace the house of God? Or would they walk in and see the immense amount of reverence and adoration that the laity give to Our Lord in the presence of the Blessed Sacrament and know that they are either there for the right intentions or not? Is this not the common teachings and expressions of Our Lord when He speaks of banquets in the New Testament? As to say that the bodies of souls who die in the state of sin when face to face with Perfection, Our Creator, that they turn out of sheer embarrassment for their own souls that are so defiled in His sight and condemn THEMSELVES to Hell for all eternity? Is that not true justice? When the perpetrator admits their wrong doings out of there own mouths without even going to court, and takes the punishment willingly and in accordance to the measure of the crime? Just some food for thought, God Bless you!

Oh Mary, no need to say “sorry”: your questions were indeed logical ones. I just thought that Fr Heilman was using the occasion of Halloween (celebrated by dressing up as witches, Devils, Zombies, etc.) to point out that there are other sorts of “witches” too who justify receiving Holy Communion unworthily, thanks to the dismal way Catholic doctrine is being taught in so many places by a compromised clergy (and Pope?) immersed in the errors of Modernism. Hence the source he uses…
Yet it’s also true that there are many people meddling in spiritualism today, and even (horror of horrors) in Satanism, so it is certainly not impossible that one of them should try to steal a consecrated host for evil, greatly sacrilegious purposes! The warning from the CCC:
2116 – All forms of divination are to be rejected: recourse to Satan or demons, conjuring up the dead or other practices falsely supposed to “unveil” the future. Consulting horoscopes, astrology, palm reading, interpretation of omens and lots, the phenomena of clairvoyance, and recourse to mediums all conceal a desire for power over time, history, and, in the last analysis, other human beings, as well as a wish to conciliate hidden powers. They contradict the honour, respect, and loving fear that we owe to God alone.
2117 – All practices of magic or sorcery, by which one attempts to tame occult powers, so as to place them at one’s service and have a supernatural power over others – even if this were for the sake of restoring their health – are gravely contrary to the virtue of religion. These practices are even more to be condemned when accompanied by the intention of harming someone, or when they have recourse to the intervention of demons. Wearing charms is also reprehensible. Spiritism often implies divination or magical practices; the Church for her part warns the faithful against it. Recourse to so-called traditional cures does not justify either the invocation of evil powers or the exploitation of another’s credulity.
No she’s not real lol
