The Mass


 This Image is against the Catholic Faith


In 1982, a couple, on pilgrimage to the Holy Land, Mr. and Mrs. Haas, took some pictures. When they returned to the United States, they found in the negatives a picture of "Jesus Christ" they never saw and never took. Going back to the Holy Land, the couple didn't find this picture anywhere. But they loved it so much that they started to get prints made and to spread it. Many people began then to say that with this picture. many beautiful things happened. This picture is now spread from the United States in several countries.

In the leaflet accompanying it, we can read the text of a communication of "Jesus" to Denise Morgan (Sunday Oct. 24, '92 ) saying:

"My eucharistic presence is here, real and alive with this image.
Reverence and respect it in your homes as you would the Blessed Sacrament."



A) About the real Presence

Council of Trent. 13th Session, Oct. 11, l551

"First of all, the holy Council teaches and openly and plainly professes that after the consecration of bread and wine, our Lord Jesus Christ, true God and True man. is truly, really and substantially contained in the august sacrament of the Holy Eucharist under the appearance of those sensible things."

It is clear, here, that the only possible matter of the Holy Eucharist is bread and wine. To say that the Eucharistic Presence can actually be in an image, in a piece of paper, is heresy.

B) About the cult of sacred images

Council of Trent, 25th Session April 4, 1563:

"The images of Christ (...) are to be placed and retained especially in the churches and (…) due honor and veneration are to be given them, not however that any divinity or virtue is believed to be in by reason of which they are to be venerated, or that something is to be asked of them. Or that trust is to be placed in images, as was done of old by the Gentiles who placed their hope in idols, but because the honor which is shown them is referred to the prototypes, which they represent, so that by means of the images (..) we adore Christ (..) whose likeness they bear. "

To adore this image, saying that it is Christ Himself who is in it, is then idolatry.


To adore this image of "Jesus, Our Savior" is a double mortal sin of heresy and idolatry.
Consequently, to know this and to spread this image is a cooperation in this double mortal sin, and is a mortal sin in itself.

With Ecclesiastical approbation
