Simon the magician was a LAYMAN
Simon the magician wished to buy a spiritual power in order that afterwards he might sell it. For it is written (I, qu. iii [Can. Salvator]), that "Simon the magician wished to buy the gift of the Holy Ghost, in order that he might make money by selling the signs to be wrought by him." Hence those who sell spiritual things are likened in intention to Simon the magician: while those who wish to buy them are likened to him in act. Those who sell them imitate, in act, Giezi the disciple of Eliseus, of whom we read (2 Kings 5:20-24) that he received money from the leper who was healed: wherefore the sellers of spiritual things may be called not only "simoniacs" but also "giezites." Question 100 Article 1
Question 100. Simony
Does real remuneration alone make a man guilty of simony, or also oral remuneration or remuneration by service?
I am a Layman with no authority in the Church. I am not a Theologian.
I am however the first one on Social Media to call out ALL Rad Trad Influencers and make them aware that they are just Laymen with no Authority in the Church. Once I did that - then ALL Rad Trad Influencers started to say I'm just a Laymen with no authority in the Church or I'm just a Dad with a Webcam etc..
It really was ridiculous to watch all these Laymen act as if they could change anything in the Church. It was a pathetic spectacle.
Now I am the first one again to call out ALL Rad Trad Influencers and accuse them of the sin of Simony.
If that's the correct term to use.
What ALL Rad Trad Influencers do is:
1. Beg for Money
2. Sell the Catholic Faith for money
3. Charge money to preach the Catholic Faith
4. Beg for Donations.
5. Set up Go Fund Me accounts etc.
6. Tell you NOT to give money to your Parish but to give money to them instead.
7. They say I have 16 children and you need to support them!
8. My wife is sick and you need to pay her medical bills....
They basically Monetize the Catholic Faith on Social Media.
What Does Monetization Mean? Monetization literally means to convert something into money. In practice, this means turning things into revenue-generating activities, services, or assets.
Again ALL Rad Trad Influencers do this. ALL.
What is really irritating is that ALL Rad Trad Influencers accuse other Rad Trad Influencers of Grifting.
A grifter is a con artist: someone who swindles people out of money through fraud. If there's one type of person you don't want to trust, it's a grifter: someone who cheats others out of money. Grifters are also known as chiselers, defrauders, gougers, scammers, swindlers, and flim-flam men.
This needs to stop.
No Layman has no right to make money off the Catholic Faith on Social Media. None.
Go out and get a job! St Paul made Tents!
I pray that the Pope Excommunicate any Catholic who Monetize the Catholic Faith on Social Media....
I still wonder about what Our Lady of La Salette had said:
Priests and religious orders will be hunted down, and made to die a cruel death. Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)
Why would LAYMEN hunt down their Priests and make them die a cruel death?
Well because these LAYMAN were Excommunicated and their source of income dried up and they refused to get a job.
I think its that simple - these LAYMEN hate the Clergy.
One final thought - ALL these Rad Trad Influencers are always Tweeting pics of themselves
1. Smoking Cigars
2. Drinking Whiskey Or Gin
3. Eating Steaks.
4. Showing Off Their GLOCKS.
5. Pumping Iron At The Gym
Why give money to any of these self indulgent sensual fornicators?
FSSP FORMING THEIR OWN CHURCH
“Evil books will be abundant on earth and the spirits of darkness will spread everywhere a universal slackening of all that concerns the service of God. They will have great power over Nature: there will be churches built to serve these spirits. People will be transported from one place to another by these evil spirits, even priests, for they will not have been guided by the good spirit of the Gospel which is a spirit of humility, charity and zeal for the glory of God. On occasions, the dead and the righteous will be brought back to life. (That is to say that these dead will take on the form of righteous souls which had lived on earth, in order to lead men further astray; these so-called resurrected dead, who will be nothing but the devil in this form, will preach another Gospel contrary to that of the true Christ Jesus, denying the existence of Heaven; that is also to say, the souls of the damned. All these souls will appear as if fixed to their bodies) Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)
ARCHBISHOP VIGANO IS THE TWO FACE NAPOLEON:
LA SALETTE PROPHECY ON TWO FACE NAPOLEON:
“May the curate of my Son, Pope Pius IX never leave Rome again after 1859; may he, however, be steadfast and noble, may he fight with the weapons of faith and love. I will be at his side. May he be on his guard against Napoleon: he is two-faced, and when he wishes to make himself Pope as well as Emperor, God will soon draw back from him. He is the master-mind who, always wanting to ascend further, will fall on the sword he wished to use to force his people to be raised up. Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)
BARON ALEXANDER VON TSCHUGGUEL IS THE FORERUNNER TO THE ANTICHRIST:
LA SALETTE PROPHECY ON FORERUNNER TO ANTICHRIST
"A forerunner of the Antichrist, with his troops drawn from many nations, will wage war against the true Christ, sole Savior of the world; he will shed much blood and will seek to annihilate the cult of God so as to be regarded as a god." Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)
MARIE JULIE JAHENNY PROPHECY ON FSSP RAD TRADS:
"During the time of the approach of the punishments announced at La Salette,an unlimited amount of false revelations will arise from hell like a swarm of flies; a last attempt of Satan to choke and destroy the belief in the true revelations by false ones." Marie Julie Jahenny of La Faudais (d.1891)
PROPHECY OF MELANIE ON TWO POPES:
"I didn't see, I don't see any Great Pope or Great Monarch before an extremely great tribulation, horrifying, terrible and general for all Christendom. But before that time, twice there will be a short lived peace; TWO shaky, servile, doubtful popes" Mélanie
THIRTY FIVE YEARS OF CHASTISEMENTS
God will abandon mankind to itself and will send punishments which will follow one after the other for more than thirty-five years. Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)

“The great chastisement will come, because men will not be converted; yet it is only their conversion that can hinder these scourges. God will begin to strike men by inflicting lighter punishments in order to open their eyes; then He will stop, or may repeat His former warnings to give place for repentance. But sinners will not avail themselves of these opportunities; He will, in consequence, send more severe castigations, anxious to move sinners to repentance, but all in vain. Finally, the obduracy of sinners shall draw upon their heads the greatest and most terrible calamities. Mélanie
“We are all guilty! Penance is not done, and sin increases daily. Those who should come forward to do good are retained by fear. Evil is great. A moderate punishment serves only to irritate the spirits, because they view all things with human eyes. God could work a miracle to convert and change the aspect of the earth without chastisement. God will work a miracle; it will be a stroke of His mercy; but after the wicked shall have inebriated themselves with blood, the scourge shall arrive Mélanie
“What countries shall be preserved from such calamities? Where shall we go for refuge? I, in my turn, shall ask, What is the country that observes the commandments of God? What country is not influenced by human fear where the interest of the Church and the glory of God are at stake? (Ah, indeed! What country, what nation upon earth?) In behalf of my Superior and myself, I have often asked myself where we could go for refuge, had we the means for the journey and for our subsistence, on condition that no person were to know it? But I renounce these useless thoughts. We are very guilty! In consequence of this, it is necessary that a very great and terrible scourge should come to revive our faith, and to restore to us our very reason, which we have almost entirely lost. Mélanie

"I protest highly against a different text, which people may dare publish after my death. I protest once more against the very false statements of all those who dare say and write First that I embroidered the Secret; second, against those who state that the Queen Mother did not say to transmit the Secret to all her people."
