offering Truth to each and every one around the world, by the very power of The Holy Spirit.
She is the Mystery of Salvation and the Mystery of Delight, the Bride of Christ; the New Jerusalem; the Light for the world, the very pinnacle of the Work of Jesus Christ.
The whole universe, had it the ability to recognise, acknowledge and appreciate the wonders of God would marvel
most at the Holy Catholic Church of John Paul II.
P   The Forms and Roots of Atheism
19. An outstanding cause of human dignity lies in Man's call to communion with God. From the very circumstances of his origin, man is already invited to converse with God. For man would not exist were he not created by God's love and constantly preserved by it.

And he cannot live fully
according to truth
unless he freely acknowledges that love
and devotes himself to his Creator.

Still, many of our contemporaries have never recognised this intimate and vital link with God or have explicitly rejected it. Thus atheism must be accounted among the most serious problems of this age and is deserving of closer examination.
The word atheism is applied to phenomena which are quite distinct from one another. For while God is expressly denied by some, others believe that man can assert absolutely nothing about Him. Still others use such a method so to scrutinise the question of God as to make it seem devoid of meaning.

Many, unduly transgressing the limits
of the positive sciences,
contend that everything can be explained
by this kind of scientific reasoning alone,
or by contrast,
they altogether disallow
that there is any absolute truth. P 

Here the great Vatican Two document, Gaudium et Spes, sets out some very, very interesting points, even if they are not surprising to the real-Catholic.
If we recall conversations with 'Catholics' who have been badly influenced by the defunct apostasy of modernism, we might recall how these poor people contended that there is no
absolute truth.
I recall having more then one heated debate about this matter, once I recovered from the astonishment that anyone believing in God could possibly believe that there is no
absolute truth!!
The false doctrine so touted by modernism that the truth is what each person believes. The false idea behind this, based on a false idea of charity, is that this notion of truth can be applied to every religion around the world. Thus we can accept all other religions as having truth - because they believe it!
How many good people have fallen for this nonsense? How many people have totally ignored what common sense they have and embraced this madness?
Worse, many of these deceived people then took it upon themselves to pity the real-Catholics who held fast to
the Truth concerning Jesus, looking upon them as archaic, long outmoded.
These are the very same people who claim to follow
the spirit of Vatican Two.
Well, the above quotation from Vatican Two documents puts that deception in its correct perspective, for it highlights the real Spirit of Vatican Two - and the Truth is the real Spirit of Vatican Two.

the Council Fathers
included all those
who did not accept absolute truth,
basing their deception on scientific reasoning alone,
as atheists!

The Council Fathers did not say they were bad Catholics or ignorant ones. No, they said that such unbelievers were part and parcel of atheism!!
That is very simple to understand, for if a person did not believe in absolute Truth, then why believe in God? Why believe in Jesus Christ? Why believe in The Universal Church and the Vicar of Christ, the Bishop of Rome?
If there is no absolute Truth, then why believe in anything.
In fact, this is exactly what modernists believed - they believed that everything changes, even the Doctrines of The Church; every one of them!
That is why we constantly heard about
change and change so that our minds could eventually become used to the idea that even the Catholic idea about God must change!
We perceive here, the modernists believed that it was an
absolute truth that there is no absolute truth!! L
