The Pope of insults; Bergoglio lets it rip, but just who is it that he railing against? Is this psychological projection?

Good grief, three blogs posts and I'm still on my first Sabbath coffee!

What a week, eh? 

The bishops of Malta apostasies and are uncorrected by the Bergoglio and then they demand that priests follow them into Hell at the pain of suspension.

The wonderful Father Philips of Our Lady of the Atonement in San Antonio is aggressively removed by his bishop.

A priest in Columbia is suspended for refusing to go along with the Bergoglian heresy.

The Bishop of Rockford violates the Law on Summorum Pontificum and demands obedience to it by his priests.

And the Bergoglio continues with his barrage of insults against Catholics who follow the faith.

How many revisions does the Pope Francis Little Book of Insults need?

From LifeSiteNews:

ROME, Italy, January 20, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Pope Francis continued his veiled criticism of Catholics opposed to "new horizons" in his homily Tuesday morning, labeling them "parked Christians." He continued with this theme as he has throughout his pontificate, speaking in this morning's homily of the "egotistical mentality" of the "doctors of the law" who "constantly condemn" others.
Francis said Christians should be open to change, saying they cannot “park” and be “lazy” when faced with adversity or remain in their “refrigerator.” For some, he added, life is “living in the fridge, just like that, so that everything remains the same.”
Francis specifically mentioned “lazy Christians, Christians, who do not have the will to continue, Christians, who do not struggle for a change of things, for new things to come, those that if changed would be a good for everybody.” Specifying about whom he was speaking, Francis added, "when I say Christians I mean all: lay, priests, bishops, all of them.”
In his homily at Casa Santa Marta this morning, the Pope said, "Consider the doctors of the law who persecuted Jesus. These men did everything prescribed by the law. But their mindset was distanced from God. Theirs was an egotistical mindset, focused on themselves: their hearts constantly condemned [others]."
The frequency with which Pope Francis has verbally reproached those not aligned with his progressive agenda within the Church has seen a marked increase in recent months. Only ten days ago he lashed out at "doctors of the law” who he said were incoherent, hypocritical, clericalist, and lacking in real authority.

Is the Bergoglian Bishop of Bologna, Matteo Maria Zuppi, the latest episcopal sodomite?

Matteo Maria Zuppi, appointed to this important See by Bergoglio. 

Is there a man left in Bologna who would defend Christ?

Apostate Bishops of the Gay priest playground in Malta, Charles Scicluna and Mario Grech travel together to Rome - LGBTQ in Malta praise them!

Did you know that Malta is a sodomite priest playground? 

Oh, you didn't?

Well, you do now! 

My priest contacts who have confirmed this, have told me that they will not travel there, unless it is on official Church business; and any priest that does go there on vacation, is suspected. 

The sodomites, lesbians, and queers of Malta are quite happy with Charles and Mario.
“In issuing these guidelines, the Maltese Bishops have shown admirable pastoral care. While building on the results of the Synod on the Family and on the teachings of Pope Francis, in continuity with the teachings of preceding popes, the language used by the Maltese Bishops as well as the way in which such complex situations are addressed feel fresh and new, and they truly show that the Church is a Mother who teaches and loves all her children, whoever and wherever they may be,” the group said.
According to Edward Pentin, the two travelled to Rome this week. One would like to think that they were hauled in before the Prefect of the Doctrine of the Faith and then before the Pope and were stripped of their bishoprics.

Ha, not likely!

Rather they were celebrated by the filthy sodomitical scum in clerics that have infiltrated the highest levels of the Church.

Bishop Mario Grech denies threatening his priests. We'll see how true that is!

It has been alleged that Bishop Mario Grech of the Diocese of Gozo in Malta has threatened his priests with suspension if they do not follow his immoral, heretical and sacrilegious attack on the Holy Eucharist, the Sacrament of Penance and Matrimony by allowing people to determine, their own, "peace with God."

Today, Bishop Grech has denied it on Facebook. Not good enough.

Let Grech issue a formal statement in writing and on his web page.

More importantly, why should we believe him? If he is corrupt enough to have been party to the immorality and disgrace of the recent designs on the interpretation of Amoris Laetitia, why should we believe him in this?

The man has already proved to have a darkened intellect and corrupt faith, he is probably a liar as well.

He certainly believes in the Bergoglian "god of surprises." 

The Holy Spirit does not change. 

Bergoglio's "god of surprises," is the Devil.

Ron Rolheiser, OMI - Peddles a false Catholicism for his false religion of Feelgoodism

Image result for ron rolheiserA few days ago, Ron Rolheiser's weekly column appeared again in Toronto's Catholic Register, a media outlet owned by the Archdiocese of Toronto. 

I'm all for freedom of the press which means that the State cannot interfere with a free press. The Catholic Register, however, has no business continuing to publish those things which fall outside of Catholic orthodoxy. It's Editors have once again failed the Catholics of Canada, as it is read nationally, and the Cardinal Archbishop who owns the paper as a Corporation Sole.

We've had Ron grace Vox previously

He has OMI after his name, however, since he refuses to wear his collar, we'll refuse to call him by his proper title. When he goes low, we go low too. 

Rolheiser's work also appears on his own webpage and reportedly, other Catholic news outlets. The Editor at the Register titled the article in question here, "Who are we to judge what is a sin." On Ron's page, he titles it, Orthodoxy, Sin and Heresy.

Let us first acknowledge the Catholic Register's foolish choice of title, let us not blame that on Ron, but on the Editor of the Catholic Register. 

"Who are we to judge what is a sin?" Asks the Register? 

We are Catholics, that is who we are and being Catholics we have every right, duty and obligation to judge what is and is not a sin ,and to govern our lives accordingly.

We cannot judge an individual person's soul but we can certainly judge what is a sin and what isn't a sin.  This is a cute little play on the words of Pope Francis, eh? "Who are we to judge?" Murder is a sin and abortion is murder. Stealing is a sin. Fornication, masturbation, watching pornography, sodomy, homosexual and lesbian behavior and its cultural fascism is a sin. Contraceptive chemicals and prophylactics are a sin. Suicide is a sin, as is aiding and abetting it under the doctor-assisted death. It is suicide for the individual and murder for those who did it. it is mortal sin. Mortal sins at that and one mortal sin can put a person in Hell. That is Catholic teaching, always was and always will be.

Ron explains how he entered a Cathedral for "Sunday Eucharist." Clearly, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is not a term that Ron's "theology" acknowledges. Ron continues then to berate the homily of the priest offering the Holy Mass, clearly a Catholic priest; he mocks him and what he told the people. Well, if it is good enough for Ron to pick apart that priest's homily, then it is good for us to pick apart, Ron's error. 

"The priest used the Gospel text where Jesus says “I am the vine and you are the branches” to tell the congregation that what Jesus is teaching here is that the Roman Catholic Church constitutes what is referred to as the branches and the way we link to those branches is through the Mass and if we miss Mass on a Sunday we are committing a mortal sin and should we die in that state we will go to hell.
Then, aware that what he was saying would be unpopular, he protested that the truth is often unpopular, but that what he just said is orthodox Catholic teaching and that anyone denying this is in heresy. It’s sad that this kind of thing is still being said in our churches."

Not enough for Ron to decry the traditional and true teaching, he then continues by actually undermining the Truth and misleading all by what he writes: 
"Does the Catholic Church really teach that missing Mass is a mortal sin and that if you die in that state you will go to hell? No, that’s not Catholic orthodoxy, though popular preaching and catechesis often suppose that it is, even as neither accepts the full consequences."
The Catechism of the Catholic Church makes it quite clear in Part III, Life in Christ, Section II, The Ten Commandments, Chapter I, "You shall love the Lord your God, ..." 

You can read the whole section at the link, but here is the summary, (of course, you already know this.)

2181 The Sunday Eucharist is the foundation and confirmation of all Christian practice. For this reason the faithful are obliged to participate in the Eucharist on days of obligation, unless excused for a serious reason (for example, illness, the care of infants) or dispensed by their own pastor. Those who deliberately fail in this obligation commit a grave sin.
2189 "Observe the sabbath day, to keep it holy" (Deut 5:12). "The seventh day is a sabbath of solemn rest, holy to the Lord" (Ex 31:15).
2190 The sabbath, which represented the completion of the first creation, has been replaced by Sunday which recalls the new creation inaugurated by the Resurrection of Christ.
2191 The Church celebrates the day of Christ's Resurrection on the "eighth day," Sunday, which is rightly called the Lord's Day (cf. SC 106).
2192 "Sunday . . . is to be observed as the foremost holy day of obligation in the universal Church" (CIC, can. 1246 § 1). "On Sundays and other holy days of obligation the faithful are bound to participate in the Mass" (CIC, can. 1247).
2193 "On Sundays and other holy days of obligation the faithful are bound . . . to abstain from those labors and business concerns which impede the worship to be rendered to God, the joy which is proper to the Lord's Day, or the proper relaxation of mind and body" (CIC, can. 1247).
2194 The institution of Sunday helps all "to be allowed sufficient rest and leisure to cultivate their familial, cultural, social, and religious lives" (GS 67 § 3).
2195 Every Christian should avoid making unnecessary demands on others that would hinder them from observing the Lord's Day.

Shall we send Ron a Catechism? What is it that he does not get about, "Those who deliberately fail in this obligation commit a grave sin?"

Rolheiser deliberately contradicts the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

1033 “...To die in mortal sin without repenting and accepting God’s merciful love means remaining separated from him for ever by our own free choice.  This state of definitive self-exclusion from communion with God and the blessed is called ‘hell’.”
1874 “...This destroys in us the charity without which eternal beatitude is impossible.  Unrepented, it brings eternal death.”
1035 “...Immediately after death the souls of those who die in a state of mortal sin descend into hell.…”

The rest of the article gets worse, particularly as he refers to a Catholic who died in an accident:

"Some years ago, I presided at the funeral of a young man, in his 20s, who had been killed in a car accident. In the months before his death he had for all practical purposes ceased practising his Catholicism. He had stopped going to church, was living with his girlfriend outside of marriage, and had not been sober when he died.
However, his family and the congregation who surrounded him at his burial knew him, and they knew that despite his ecclesial and moral carelessness he had a good heart, that he brought sunshine into a room and that he was a generous young man.
At the reception after the funeral, one of his aunts, who believed that missing Mass was a mortal sin that could condemn you to hell, approached me and said: “He had such a great heart and such a wonderful energy; if I were running the gates of Heaven, I would let him in.”"

The Prophet Ezekiel tells us what God thinks:

If the just man turn himself away from his justice and do iniquity … all his justices which he hath done shall not be remembered. (Ezekiel 18:20)

Sorry Auntie, you don't write the rules of heaven.

Readers here know what mortal sin is; but what about the Feelgoodism religion that Ron is preaching? What about this culpability?

Three conditions are necessary for mortal sin to exist: Grave Matter: The act itself is intrinsically evil and immoral. For example, murder, rape, incest, perjury, adultery, and so on are grave matter. Full Knowledge: The person must know that what they're doing or planning to do is evil and immoral.

Who is excused from that statement? The truly insane, perhaps. 

It is impossible to believe that a Catholic does not know that they must attend Mass on Sunday. Even with the bad catechesis from men such as Rolheiser, can we truly believe that people do not know that it is a sin? Perhaps though, Ron is right. Perhaps they don't. We've just come through the Christmas season when people suddenly remembered to attend Mass. Not out of love for Christ. Not out of the Truth, but out of sentimentalism. A sentimentalist and relativist mindset.

So, if Ron is correct; and most Catholics who die today are really not responsible for anything and will all be forgiven by God, because we're just so good nice; if this were remotely true, whose fault is it?

What responsibility does Ron Rolheiser, OMI, have for the fact that Catholics do not know what is and what is not a mortal sin? Do they know any more after reading his heterodox diatribe?

God said something else through the Prophet Ezekiel before that verse above that Ron, and many other clerics and all of us might consider heading:

16 And at the end of seven days the word of the Lord came to me, saying:
17 Son of man, I have made thee a watchman to the house of Israel: and thou shalt hear the word out of my mouth, and shalt tell it them from me.
18 If, when I say to the wicked, Thou shalt surely die: thou declare it not to him, nor speak to him, that he may be converted from his wicked way, and live: the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but I will require his blood at thy hand.
19 But if thou give warning to the wicked, and he be not converted from his wickedness, and from his evil way: he indeed shall die in his iniquity, but thou hast delivered thy soul.
20 Moreover if the just man shall turn away from his justice, and shall commit iniquity: I will lay a stumbling block before him, he shall die, because thou hast not given him warning: he shall die in his sin, and his justices which he hath done, shall not be remembered: but I will require his blood at thy hand.
21 But if thou warn the just man, that the just may not sin, and he doth not sin: living he shall live, because thou hast warned him, and thou hast delivered thy soul.

Rolheiser's work is sad reading from a sad man. A man who has lost the faith and who has drunk from the cup of modernism and has succumbed to its poison. A man whose work is truly "straw" unlike the Angelic Doctor who would not recognize truth in Ron's work.  

He may wish to ponder what the Holy Prophet has said and given the choice between Ezekiel and Rolheiser, I won't be taking Rolheiser's advise any time soon.

"And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many."


Through his "assistant" here is Ron Rolheiser's response:

1.     What I said in the article needs to be said because many Catholics are not clear on the church’s actual teaching on both missing mass and on mortal sin:
·       Missing mass is a serious and grave thing, but one can ever, from the outside, say it is a mortal sin. That is orthodox Catholic teaching.
·       Mortal sin, and all sin, can never be judged from the outside, it is a thing of conscience, between God and that person. That too is classical Catholic moral theology.

2.     The article does not trivialize either the seriousness of missing mass or of having sex outside of marriage. In a properly, fully formed conscience these would be grave matter; but many people (not least many of our own children) often approach very serious things in a careless, irresponsible manner. That isn’t a judgment on the seriousness of the matter, but on their immaturity. We can be very careless, calloused, and mindless before serious things, and often are. That doesn’t diminish their seriousness, but speaks of what Thomas Aquinas called “invincible, non-culpable ignorance” on our part.

3.     Some persons object that this column confuses people and sends a bad signal to young people (who need clear moral teachings). I admit the danger here and agree that young people need clear moral guidance. But I risk this column nonetheless for two reasons:
i.               We need to give clear moral teaching to our young, but it needs to be accurate moral teaching. Over-simplistic, not-properly-nuanced, thinking can, I agree, frighten some into different behavior, but we are still sending them a false message. We simply may not be that black and white in naming mortal sin, particularly if we want be consistent about its consequences. 
ii.              To say someone has committed a mortal sin says too that, should he or she die in that condition, he or she would go to hell for all eternity. That’s what the word “mortal” means here. Everything we believe about God and all that’s best in us won’t let us draw out that conclusion. Millions of good people die in this state (having missed mass many times and having had sex outside of marriage, without having confessed either of them) and we cannot consign them to hell. It goes against most everything Jesus incarnated and taught.

4.     I wrote this column precisely to help free up many people who worry that some of their loved ones, children, relatives, friends, died and went to hell because they missed mass or had sex outside of marriage and then died, suddenly or otherwise, in a way that didn’t leave them either the opportunity or aptitude for explicit confession or repentance. We need to accept more fully what Jesus taught about God’s understanding and mercy. Where do we see Jesus lay down these kinds of hard, categorical kinds of statements about “mortal” sin? In deciding what is really confused here we might well ask ourselves: Where would Jesus land on this? 

I am sorry if what I have written upsets or confuses some people, but what we have often been casually teaching about missing mass and mortal sin has also confused and upset many people, many of whom have left the church precisely because of this kind of teaching – which, in its unrefined expression, does no honor to either Jesus or the Roman Catholic Church. Both need to be freed from this kind judgment.

Has Maltese Bishop Mario Grech threatened priests with suspension who do not go along with sacrilege?

The Italian blog Messa in Latino, is reporting that Mario Grech, Bishop of Gozo in Malta has threatened suspension to any priest who defies the edict that Holy Communion must be provided to those in adultery, and presumably other sins or that would be discriminatory, who are at "peace with God."

Image result for Mario Grech, Bishop of Gozo

Ci è stato riferito da persone affidabili ed attendili, di cui conosciamo l’identità ma che per ovvi motivi non possiamo rilevare, che in questi recentissimi giorni mons. Mario Grech (vescovo di Gozo, nella foto) di ritorno da Roma ha MINACCIATO i preti della propria diocesi di Malta di “proibire loro la Messa se non supportano le direttive su Amoris Laetitia scritte con il vescovo Sciucluna”. … Quindi: minaccia di sospensione a divinis (o comunque interdetto di celebrare pubblicamente) per i preti maltesi che non daranno la comunione ai divorziati risposati We were told by reliable and trustworthy people, whose identity we know but for obvious reasons we cannot reveal, that in these last few days, Bp. Mario Grech (Bishop of Gozo, in the photo) on his return from Rome THREATENED priest of his diocese in Malta to “prohibit them from saying Mass if they don’t support the directives about Amoris laetitia written with Bishop Scicluna.  … Hence, he threads suspension a divinis (or rather interdict to celebrate publicly) for Maltese priests who do not give Communion to the divorced and remarried.

If this is not true, let Mario come out and deny it!

You can find him on Facebook and Twitter too!

Ask him if it's true. Let's force him to admit it, or deny it!

David Malloy, Bishop of Rockford declares himself Supreme Pontiff!

David Malloy, the Bishop of Rockford has barred his priests from offering the Novus Ordo Missae in the ad orientem posture. The rubrics of the Roman Missal Third Edition are quite clear in the instruction, that the priest, when he says the Orate or the Pax, is "facing the people." It specifically states that in red because it presumes that he is not, facing the people.

Secondly, Mr. Malloy, has banned priests from offering the traditional Roman liturgy without his permission in direct contravention of Summorum Pontificum.

The bishop is a malefactor. He has no authority to do either. He is a disgrace.

While he is at it, maybe he should ban Confession or public recitation of the Rosary?

How much shall we bet that his next move will be to demand his priests give the Blessed Sacrament to adulterers or sodomites who have not repented and have no intention of amendment of life?

Father Z has the details.

Dr. Joseph Shaw of the Latin Mass Society in the U.K. reports at Rorate.

The Bishop is wrong. Only a man with a distorted ecclesiology and a corrupt Catholic heart and mind would diminish the liturgy of the Holy Mass and mock his priests and people in such a manner.

The man is a clericalist and a disgrace. A boil on the Body of Christ.

Let him be anathema. 

He looks rather queer* too, no?

*Queer: strange or odd from a conventional viewpoint; unusually different; singular:
a queer notion of justice.

What would Peter do?

Two videos below, both from the last few days, show two very different aspects of Pope Francis.

On one hand, the Pope has two roles, he is the Chief Shepherd of the Church and the people of God; on the other, Pope of the Vatican City State with all the internationalist and diplomatic entanglements and niceties that go along with it. In fairness to Frances, Pope Benedict XVI and John Paul II in the to be described, would not have done differently.

Yet, the fact that any modern Pope would not have acted differently displays for all the deep-seated evil that has befallen the Church.

First, we have a video of a recent audience where he opines some examples of fortune tellers and that real hope is free and is in Jesus Christ.


In this second video of just a few days ago, the President of the Republic of Guinea Alpha Condé, a Muslim. What is curious about Condé, is the gift he presents to the Pope, an image of the pagan god of fertility, Nmba.

A Muslim gives the Pope a gift of a graven image of a pagan god!

My gosh, where does one even begin to get one's head around that? He's not even a good Muslim!

The Satanic infiltration of Modernism and Freemasonry into the Vatican and its whole diplomatic mission has caused the Vatican City State and its Popes to betray its true mission.

Yesterday, as noted in the traditional calendar before even 1960, was the Feast of the Chair of St. Peter in Rome (now combined on February 22 incorporating it and the Feast of the Chair at Antioch). If St. Peter met the King of an African tribe nearly two thousand years ago, he would have smiled and been warm to him. But he would not have failed to preach to him he must come to Jesus Christ and the Catholic Church in order to be saved.

He most certainly would not have accepted a gift of a pagan idol, even to be nice.

How can we have a Popes who one day, preach against idolatry and fortune tellers and only a few days later, accept a graven image as a diplomatic gift.

This was a big fail from Alpha Condé who should probably receive a "fatwa" for his action.

It is a bigger fail for the Vicar of Christ.

Psalm 95

My cousin Gerald

This is my cousin, Gerald. The photo was taken on December 17, near Hong Kong.

Gerald lived and worked in Moncton, New Brunswick, one of Canada's Maritime provinces. He was from a little hamlet just outside of Saint John. Gerald was my first-cousin, once-removed; that is, his grandmother, Sittoo in Lebanese, and my mother, were sisters, his mother being then, my first cousin. He was also half Irish, and seemed to become, through his friends and his cooking, an honourary Filipino.

I've not seen Gerald since we were young, my not travelling to New Brunswick in too many decades and Gerald not to Toronto. But we kept in touch on Facebook and mostly, he just let me win the argument. 

Gerard's funeral was held yesterday at Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church in Rothesay. 

Gerald died on December 21. He was on vacation in Asia and was in the Philippines on a beach in Casiguran with friends. A storm came up and a woman in the water was in crisis, struggling and drowning in rough water. 

Bearing more the physical resemblance of Vox, than an Olympic swim champion, Gerald ran into the water in spite of the protests of his friends. I am told that he shouted, as he ran to the water, "well somebody has to save her."

Both perished. 

Gerald's body was finally returned home to New Brunswick and to his beloved parents Dolores and Frank a few days ago. May they, and Gerald's siblings, be comforted at this time by the words of Our Lord:

"Greater love hath no man than this;
that a man lay down his life for his friends."

Eternal rest, O Lord, grant unto the soul of Gerald and may perpetual light shine upon him. 

May he rest in peace. Amen.

How many of our Shepherds today actually read their Office?

As I may have written previously, the Fox and I have been praying, for a while now, the Divine Office from the Divino Afflatu, most perfectly reformed by Pope St. Pius X, and with its most recent pre-Bugnini calendar of 1951. Today, is the Feast of the Chair of St. Peter at Rome done away with in 1960 by John XXIII and incorporated on to the February 22 Feast of the Chair of Peter at Antioch, where it resides in both the Divine Office of 1962 and the Liturgy of the Hours which came along only a decade later. 

If one clicks on this link, it is pre-set to compare the day's Divino Afflatu and the Divine Office, just click on the appropriate Hour to compare, Matins, or Matutinum, being the most glaring destruction. Clearly, the liturgical destruction did not begin after the Second Vatican Council, the seeds were already planted and well-watered.

When one compares even the beginning of the impoverishment in 1962 with the Liturgy of the Hours, particularly Matins or the Office of Readings, it is even more profoundly tragic. Yet, not all is lost in the current books, while one can deplore its brevity, and its missing psalms and edited psalms, the Readings themselves, are quite good.

Yesterday, a good priest friend sent me the Reading from Monday of the Second Week in Ordinary Time.

Second Reading
From a letter to the Ephesians by Saint Ignatius of Antioch, bishop and martyr
Have faith in Christ, and love
Try to gather together more frequently to give thanks to God and to praise him. For when you come together frequently, Satan’s powers are undermined, and the destruction he threatens is done away with in the unanimity of your faith. Nothing is better than peace, in which all warfare between heaven and earth is brought to an end.
None of this will escape you if you have perfect faith and love toward Jesus Christ. These are the beginning and the end of life: faith the beginning, love the end. When these two are found together, there is God, and everything else concerning right living follows from them. No one professing faith sins; no one possessing love hates. “A tree is known by its fruit.” So those who profess to belong to Christ will be known by what they do. For the work we are about is not a matter of words here and now, but depends on the power of faith and on being found faithful to the end.
It is better to remain silent and to be than to talk and not be. Teaching is good if the teacher also acts. Now there was one teacher who “spoke, and it was made,” and even what he did in silence is worthy of the Father. He who has the word of Jesus can truly listen also to his silence, in order to be perfect, that he may act through his speech and be known by his silence. Nothing is hidden from the Lord, but even our secrets are close to him. Let us then do everything in the knowledge that he is dwelling within us so that we may be his temples and he may be God within us. He is, and will reveal himself, in our sight, according to the love we bear him in holiness.
“Make no mistake,” my brothers: those who corrupt families “will not inherit the kingdom of God.” If those who do these things in accordance with the flesh have died, how much worse will it be if one corrupts through evil doctrine the faith of God for which Jesus was crucified. Such a person, because he is defiled, will depart into the unquenchable fire, as will any one who listens to him.
For the Lord received anointing on his head in order that he might breathe incorruptibility on the Church. Do not be anointed with the evil odour of the teachings of the prince of this world, do not let him lead you captive away from the life that is set before you. But why is it that we are not all wise when we have received the knowledge of God, which is Jesus Christ? Why do we perish in our stupidity, not knowing the gift the Lord has truly sent us?
My spirit is given over to the humble service of the cross which is a stumbling block to unbelievers but to us salvation and eternal life.

My response to him was, "Well, it is pretty obvious that most churchmen do not read their Office!"

Plagues of Egypt: from the Church in Argentina to the Church Universal and Bergoglian attack on the traditional Mass

BREAKING: Earthquakes throughout Italy felt in Rome

A few days ago, I came across the Argentine Blog, Sagrada Tradicion, and this blog post from September 19, 2010. It was just three years after Summorum Pontificum and just under three years from the election of the man featured in this important article. We knew early from various news sources on Rorate Caeli of the persecution of the traditional Mass by then Cardinal Bergoglio. In light of concerns recently raised by Sandro Magister, a look back at this story from nearly seven years ago, is important to reveal where we may be going.

If Bishop of Rome Bergoglio attempts to undermine the growth and provision of the traditional Latin Rite of the Mass, it will be his undoing.

Let this be a warning to all of us, and to him.

Bergoglio: The Seven Plagues from Egypt for the Argentine Church
Francisco José Fernández de la Cigoña

An Argentine reader, undoubtedly overestimating the strength of the Blog, asks me for help that on my own doing is not going to proceed. And more so, agreeing that Cardinal Bergoglio is the most directly responsible for the current decline of the Church in Argentina.

There is exactly a year, three months and a day -seems to be a criminal conviction- so that the archbishop of Buenos Aires may present the resignation of his archdiocese, or of what remains of it, to the Holy Father. I hope it’s accepted immediately.

And Bergoglio has not only been a calamity for his archiepiscopate, but has extended his evil influence to the whole nation over whose Church prevails for soul’s perdition.

This is the letter of the unknown Argentine friend:

Dear Don Paco Pepe:

I know that you do not have much time, but I have not been able to synthesize more what I want to tell you, I beg you to have the patience to read it until the end:

I have been following your blog for a long time, not remembering very well if I have ever written to you.

Our blog, Catholic Page, is dedicated mainly to provide the audio of the Sunday sermons and some conferences of very good Catholic authors.

But at the same time, I was personally in charge of a Chapel in the Buenos Aires archdiocese (at the request of the previous parish priest), called the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The last four years, with the effort of neighbors, families with many children in general, the chapel that had been closed for 25 years lived the splendor of the traditional liturgy (Novus Ordo in Latin, Gregorian chant, kneeling Communion, etc.). To the point where there was no place for the people who filled the path. Such ceremonies are almost never seen in Buenos Aires. I remember an old woman who said, "How beautiful! It's the same as watching the Pope's Mass on TV." With this you can have an idea of what the Chapel used to be.

The RP Dr. Alfredo Sáenz, SJ celebrated mass regularly. He is one of the most lucid minds of the local and American Catholicism. Author of more than 50 books and international speaker. In a recent trip to Rome where he was one of the experts convened by the Pontifical Council for Culture, which sponsored a Congress on the Church and American Emancipation, he visited Cardinal Cañizares and told him about the "experiment" of the Chapel, for which he received congratulations from both the Cardinal and Mons. Ferrer.

Then more celebrants were added, some four in total, which made it possible for 4 years not to miss the Holy Mass any Sunday or feast of precept, including Holy Week celebrations. 

With this background I want to tell you three episodes.

1 Prohibition of the Tridentine Mass in 2007:

That year, after the publication of the Motu Proprio, we went to the former parish priest, Father Carlos White, to ask him to give place to the Tridentine Mass in our chapel, without canceling the Novus Ordo. He said yes, so that on October 14, 2007, a very solemn Mass was sung. Another was foreseen for the 28th of the same month, but Cardinal Bergoglio (whose plan on the subject didn’t match with this mass), ordered to close it definitively, which was communicated to us by the Parochial Vicar, by the Chaplain of the traditionalists here, by the Pastor and by the Episcopal Vicar of the Zone (always by word). As a result, we had the suspension of the Tridentine Mass in October 2007 until now.

2 Closing of the Sacred Heart Chapel in 2010:

After this outrage, the neighbors decided to remain silent (not to go to Ecclesia Dei) because, knowing the persecutory ways of Bergoglio, we prefer to stay with the Novus Ordo in Latin and as the Church commands, and not risk what we had for the Tridentine Mass. Thus we live in peace for three more years.

But in March 2010 the parish priest changed (Father White left the Archdiocese to the south of Buenos Aires, about 2,000 Km. It is clear that he did not get along well with the Cardinal). The new priest, a man who can be quietly placed within the Third World movement, was not happy with the ways of the chapel and reluctantly tolerated them until, in disagreement with a Corpus Christi procession that had been done for four years and that was not forbidden, interrupted the ceremony and finally closed the chapel, throwing the neighbors and leaving the neighborhood in the hands of the Protestant sects that patrol it.

3 New request for Tridentine Mass in 2010:

As a means of defending our rights, more than 100 faithful who for four years had attended there, integrating a perfectly formed and stable group, we request by letter the application of the Motu Proprio to the parish priest. He replied that it will not be granted because the Cardinal does not allow it (always by word, they do not write when they misbehave). The Zonal Bishop told me exactly the same thing that the cardinal does not allow them. We then turned to the Cardinal who has not answered us for more than a month, despite the repeated calls we made searching for him.

We are about to appeal to Ecclesia Dei these days.

All these events are detailed in our blog (Except the suspension of the Tridentine Mass of 2007 that we will do shortly). We have even published the audio of the interruption of the ceremony that made the parish priest to scold us.

If something of this comes out on your blog, I think it will be a great pressure to try to have Justice restored in our Archdiocese, where progressivism is devastating the Church.

If you have time watch two videos that we publish of a procession of Christ Rey 2009 to give an idea of what happened here. This will no longer be seen on the streets of Buenos Aires.

I have 52 years and 7 children of my only wife with whom I have been married for more than 22 years.

Dear Paco Pepe, I send you a big hug and await your news. Any clarification you need I will do it with pleasure.
