Q. Are all the prayers and works of a person in a state of sin sinful?
A. It is a heresy, condemned by the sacred Council of Trent, to say that all the prayers and works of a person in a state of sin are sins. St. Bernard says that prayer is the mouth of a sinner, although it is without supernatural excellence, since it is not accompanied by charity, yet is useful and efficient in obtaining a release from sin; for, as St. Thomas teaches the prayer of the sinner is indeed without merit, but it serves to obtain the grace of pardon; for the power of obtaining it is based not upon the worth of him who prays, but upon the divine bounty, and upon the merits and promise of Jesus Christ, who has said, “Every one that asketh receiveth.” The same may be said of the prayers offered to the divine mother.”
Q. St. Thomas Aquinas taught the world was created in a most perfect condition, but today, children are taught it was created out of chaos—an explosion. What is the reason why the Catholic view is not taught today?

Q. What takes many Catholic mothers ‘courage to admit’?

Q. Give a theory which is taught as true in public schools, justifies abortion, “mercy” killing of the elderly and of mentally handicapped children, experimenting on human beings for their body parts and the harvesting of humans for body parts, etc. and which promotes genetic population control?
A. The wicked and Satanic theory of evolution—that man has no dignity since he has no soul and evolved from Apes and that man is just a superior animal so why give its life any dignity at all?
Q. What is the best way to reduce man to the level of an animal?
A. Teach children that we all have evolved from Apes and that we are nothing more than superior animals with no immortal souls, with no dignity, and with no loving God above.
Q. True or False: It’s a delicate art raising Holy children without over strictness.
A. True, and it is impossible to raise good Catholic families today without a lot of self-denial.
Q. What must necessarily be the ‘action’ taken by the Remnant Faithful today— in order to raise Holy Catholic families?
A. To make Holy Catholic families today, it takes a lot of guts (self-sacrifice) and by following the true faith, such mothers and fathers will naturally be led to make certain logical sacrifices, like renouncing bad TV shows, Cable, and bad movies and bad books, in order to have large families that are well behaved and holy who stand out and can do a lot of good with just being who they are as an example to others.
Q. What Pope said, “There can be no doubt that truth alone should imbue (inspire) the minds of men, therefore, NOTHING BUT THE TRUTH SHOULD BE TAUGHT” (to children).
A. Pope Leo XIII in The Church Speaks to the Modern World. “What the church cannot possibly do is to declare satisfactory a school regime based upon the principle that anybody should be free to teach what it pleases him to call truth, even though it may be error.”
Q. Defending one’s faith always means defending one’s ___________.

Q. Why does society abort and kill children? How did our society get to this point?
A. Because it has stopped honoring Parents. It has broken the 5th Commandment because we have broken the 4th. It does not appreciate the importance of babies because it does not appreciate the importance of parents. G.K. Chesterton.
Q. Why can’t progressives and revolutionaries identify with an unchanging ideal like a Holy Family Unit, True Indissoluble Catholic Marriage, the Rearing of Children and Authentic Catholic Education?
A. Because they keep attacking Tradition where these ideals are to be found. G.K. Chesterton.
