In order to fulfill her obligation to transmit the Faith
- Anointing of the sick.
- Holy orders
The authentic faith of the Catholic Faith is not vague, subjective, wishy-washy.
Unfortunately in some parishes it has become like that.
At a recent Mass in a village in France, the parents who wanted to baptize their baby
had to, as is required in France, to publicly announce it and give their reasons for why
they wanted it.
In her statement the woman said that they wanted to baptize the child because it was "a strong
symbol and tradition in her family". The priest was standing next to her as she was speaking,
and he did not make any mention to the fact that baptism is the most fundamental Sacrament
without which we can not become co-heirs with Christ.
This is the church today.
It is no doubt linked to the protestant Alpha program that has been rolled out in catholic churches
all over the world, in an effort to attract people to the church.
Because in this program the Sacraments are not mentioned once.
And the bishops themselves do not have a problem with the Alpha program being rolled out in
But in any case, any human efforts to "attract" people are doomed to fail anyway, because it is
Jesus that attracts.
The efforts of destruction
The retreats in The Foyers of Charity in Chateauneuf-de-Galaure, where Marte Robin lived,
are based on the teaching of Saint Louis-Marie Grignion de Montfort.
It has brought very many people into the faith and it has inspired many people to consecrate
their life to the Lord.
Now there is to be released a book about Marthe Robin which seeks to prove that she was a
fraud, written by the deceased "eminent writer and catholic expert" Conrad De Meester.
Conrad De Meester had drawn up his report regarding Marthe Robin, it had been submitted
to Rome, they did not believe it.
On the contrary; Marthe Robin was declared Venerable by Pope Francis, a key step to
beatification, and the Pope recognized her as being "heroic in virtue".
At her funeral there was 4 bishops and over 200 priests.
But there is a section of the French Catholic Church that wants to become even more
protestant than they are already, and they have never accepted Marthe Robin.
It is hardly a coincidence that this manuscript is published a few months after the conclusion
of the independent exterior research commission, whose identity is unknown, commissioned by the
Foyers of Charity themselves; not with a view to a trial intending to find Father Finet, (the priest
that Marthe worked with in setting up the Foyers) guilty or innocent, but with a view to accord
a space for listening to testimonies from former pupils.
And to find out exactly what had taken place, in order to eliminate the risks of that happening again.
Father Finet has been dead for 30 years.
This retreat center is one of excellence and this was part of their continuous efforts to
The vast majority of the testimonies from 143 former pupils of the school (school founded by
Marthe Robin and Père Finet) were positive regarding the priest, but 14 stories recounted
"body touches" on the area of the neck, chest, arms, back, buttocks and legs, and questions of
sexual nature during confession.
As already mentioned, the research commission's identity is kept secret and equally the rapport itself.
A large number of the former students are saying that they testified in good faith, but they now feel
that they have been abused by the commission, as they do not know into which category their
testimony has gone. They are wondering if they have become "victims" without knowing it.
Did for example a simple buttoning of an apron become a "body touch"?
They underline that Père Finet was like a father to them, and had fatherly gestures.
The former students and Father Finet's family are urging The Vatican to review the case in a
fully transparent manner and to interrogate the members of the commission.
But, in the meantime, what better time than to make a profit from releasing this book...
"Do not put your trust in princes, in human beings, who cannot save."
«Put no trust in a neighbor; have no confidence in a friend; guard the doors of your mouth from her who lies in your arms; for the son treats the father with contempt, the daughter rises up against her mother, the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; a man's enemies are the men of his own house.»
(Micah 7: 5-6)
«It is better to take refuge in the Lord than to trust in man.»
«Thus says the Lord: “Cursed is the man who trusts in man and makes flesh his strength, whose heart turns away from the Lord. He is like a shrub in the desert, and shall not see any good come. He shall dwell in the parched places of the wilderness, in an uninhabited salt land. “Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord. He is like a tree planted by water, that sends out its roots by the stream, and does not fear when heat comes, for its leaves remain green, and is not anxious in the year of drought, for it does not cease to bear fruit.” The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately sick; who can understand it?»
The devil, who is everywhere, also present in the church, suffers a lot from jealousy.
He hates the success this retreat has had in bringing people
to Jesus. He wants an end to it. But he will not succeed.
The Foyers of Charity are established all over the world, that is all the "evidence" anyone should
need to the authenticity of Marthe Robin.
