Sorry Cardinal Sarah, I'm not buying what you're selling!

Image result for lectionary

You are probably familiar with how Cardinal Sarah, in his earnest attempt to keep the "Reform of the Reform" alive, was slapped down last year over the "ad orientem" posture matter. I wrote then that the idea of the ROTR was dead and that the "bastard rite" was not reformable. 

The tools needed to put lipstick on the pig are already there. The mock of the Mass brought to you by Giovanni Montini already has all that which is necessary to bring it more in line with the traditional. Use the Graduale Romanum of 1975 for the chant, face east, use incense, Penitential Rite A and the Roman Canon (EPI), incense, and so on. But this is all window dressing, it is lipstick on a pig. The fundamental problems remain in the Offertory, the theology behind that Missal and, yes the Lectionary.

Others have written erudite articles on this. Dr. Shaw, Father Zuhlsdorf and more, Father Raymond J. DeSouza has come out backing it and then, backed off. You can read them.

I'm a little behind on this post, so there is no sense me rehashing them, but I will give a few of my thoughts, given my over thirty years of work in both "forms" of the Roman Rite.

  • The one improvement that could benefit the traditional Lectionary is the structured Advent weekday readings. This follows the ancient Lenten lectionary in the traditional rite where each day has prescribed readings rather than ferial or Sunday repetition.
  • An Old Testament Lesson could be added to Sundays and First Class Feasts.
  • There are no other benefits, notwithstanding Sacrosanctam Concilium.

The loss would be greater. Embers. Rogations. Vigils. Octaves, the yearly repetition of beautiful Catholic doctrine. The Mass is not a bible study.

When one reads the Divine Office, particularly even with the 1961 revisions, one sees the intricate connections between the Office and the Mass. It is especially evident in the Divino Affaltu and the Sanctoral cycle. The readings in the Office are related to the readings of the Mass and the chants of the Mass are also intricately woven in to the readings.

At one time, I hoped for a unified calendar and lectionary. That was when I worked with both, "forms". I see now that folly.

The calendar is the other challenge put forth by the good Cardinal, and I do not doubt his sincerity, but it is simply not possible. The modern must give way to the traditional. The traditional feast days for saints would require restoration. What about the Embers, the Rogations, Vigils, Octaves, Christ the King?

No, get back to paying attention to bringing the Novus Ordo back where it belongs, at least to the point of the "1965 Missal."

But get your hands off the traditional.

God bless you little Charlie

The British press complain about the media circus. Perhaps, had they done their jobs earlier, this little baby would have had a chance.

Where was Elizabeth Regina in all of this? Where was she in this crime? Sitting by whilst the State allowed her subject suffer to the point of no return. A disgraceful Queen, a failed Monarch. Shame on her.

England is a criminal state. A nation that has lost its soul. A land that has lost its faith and deserves what it is going to get. Oh yes, it is going to get just what it deserves.

The little boy was baptized. When he dies, he will be a saint in heaven.

May he intercede then for England's conversion and that of its monarch before she dies and is judged. May Charlie delight for eternity before the very Throne of God.

Moving beyond the term "papolatry" to the realisation of the subversive element

I've used the term "papolatry," as have others, to describe the almost idolatrous nature of the treatment of the current Bishop of Rome and his sycophants promotion of his every word and breath being from his "god of surprises." We see it in the case of priests on Twitter, the Vatican's own press (more on that tomorrow), and people such as Austin Ivereigh, parroting every word of Bergoglio's as if it was the new divine revelation and we are too stupid to get with the party. 

The word, papolatry, is of Protestant origin and used as a smear on Catholicism. The point of using it, at least on my part, is to show how we have ascribe to the pope that which the Protestants have accused us of doing.

A reader, Mr. Benjamin Van Dyck, has written in the combox about the term, "papolatry" and more. It is a comment which I am going to publish because it is a salient and profound assessment of the current situation.

I thank Mr. Van Dyck for his wisdom.

I do not use the term "papolatry" because it was conceived in Protestantism. Besides, the sycophants of Pope Francis are not actually adoring him as a god, but irrationally extending pontifical infallibility beyond the criteria posed by His Divine Majesty. It has been the typical modus operandi of the subversive elements within the Church whenever they had the Pope under their sway. When the Pope contradicted their agenda, however, this 'extended papal infallibility' of theirs disappeared like snow before the sun. Very 'convenient' for them.
There is some kind of confusion of terminologies going on throughout the internet. I see words like "ultramontanism" and "clericalism" employed to describe the tyrannical behaviour of the present Pope of Rome and his yes-men, while these words were originally used as synonymous with Catholicism, and specifically the teachings of the First Vatican Council. People must stop doing this, because the enemy of "ultramontanism" and "clericalism" is sitting right there upon the august Apostolical See, abusing his authority to push forth his ecclesiastical hippie revolution.
I am convinced that God has permitted Pope Francis to be unleashed on the Church so that the Ratzingerian paradigm of equilibrium between so-called 'conservatives' and 'progressives would be shattered irrevocably. I remember well how stagnant this situation was in the days of Benedict XVI as Pope, and how the Ratzingerians insisted on the impossible pretense that the errors of Paul VI were not inherently erroneous, and that the texts could be reconciled with the Apostolic Tradition. They would even refuse the Roman Mass to those who were unwilling to burn this grain of incense to 'Mother Synthesis' on the altars of Hegel. Pope Francis, since his election, has been painfully embarrassing them to the point where those who continue to write seriously about the Ratzingerian "Hermeneutics of Continuity", read as if their articles are pieces of intended satire.
Let the Princes of the Church recognise the divine visitation, and attack the problems within the Church at their root; the invisible coup d'état wrought by Judeo-Masonry during the Second Vatican Council. Let them finally admit that "Dignitatis Humanae", "Nostra Aetate" and "Amoris Laetitia" must be condemned as objectively saturated with the depraved spirit of the maçonnerie, instead of continuing to insist that they be "read in the light of Tradition", which is impossible. When one shines the light of Tradition upon them, hideous devils are seen, not continuity. Francis is but the bitter fruit of a bitter tree.

The Papolatry given to this Francis of Rome has now even been articulated by Cardinal Müller

From the Eponymous Flower and Katholiches
[Katholisches] "Every Catholic, especially every bishop and every cardinal, has a positive and constructive relationship with the Pope. But this is anything but courtly manners and the groveling of subordinates, against which Pope Francis always spoke."
"That means that not everything he does and says is, from the outset, already perfect and unquestionable."
"There should be no personal cult and a pope-touching tourism."
Cardinal Gerhard Muller, prefect of the Roman Congregation for the Congregation of the Doctrine and the Faith, no longer in office, on Pope Franziskus, report of the German Press Agency (DPA), quoted from Der Spiegel v. July 19, 2017.

Now, can we get this Cardinal to speak up about a few more things of which he knows?

Muller's replacement, The new Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Archbishop Luis Ladaria, has now said:

‘I am in a deep and spontaneous harmony with the Pope’.

"Deep and spontaneous harmony"? What if the Pope is wrong? Truly, the job of the Prefect and the curia in general is to serve the pope, but they are to serve Christ first. The presumption is, of course, that the pope is serving Christ.

This writer has referred many times to "papolatry." It is a sin. It is a violation of the First Commandment of God. The Pope is a man. He is the servant of the servants of God. He is to be respected and obeyed in so far as he is carrying out the true faith and teaching true doctrine in line with his predecessors and the Magisterium.

When he deviates from the truth, he is to be corrected. If he refuses to be corrected, then he is to be ignored and if necessary, publicly scolded for his apostasy and heresy. These are not personal sins, this is public scandal. However, his heresy and apostasy is magnified when his minions in clerics and the faithful people in their ignorance and blind obedience, give unto any pope, that which is reserved to God alone. Add to this, a character of infallibility that is just not what the Church teachers or has ever taught. Protestants, Neo-Caths and Sedevacantists carry this papal authority too far. The First Vatican Council in its declaration of infallibility did not give power to the pope, it defined it, and, it limited it. 

Do not ascribe to the Bishop of Rome that which he does not have!

Why are Catholics doing what Protestants have accused Catholics of doing, worshiping the pope as if his passing of gas has the scent of frankincense? His is not the odour of sanctity, it is more like sulphur.

Stop this papolatry!

No pope, not John Paul II not Francis is to be given such treatment. It is all around Francis, people are blind, they are sycophantic, but they are waking up. Unfortunately, there are those around him who are lusting at the ability to exploit peoples good intentions and ignorance and this pope's megalomonia for their own evil purposes.

May God deliver us soon from this Peronist Pope and the Jesuit and sodomite regime that has seized control of the Church.

Arturo Sosa the Apostate Catholic, Judas Priest and "baptised" Buddhist presiding over the gaying of the Jesuits

Arturo Sosa, S.J., is the Superior General of the Society of Jesus - the Jesuits, he has This once great Society of priests has been taken over by sodomites and homosexualists, modernists, heretics and pagans. We see it daily in our Twitter feeds with the likes of James Martin and others.

The Jesuits have  become infiltrated with sodomites, pretty clear from this Facebook page.

Now, Sosa, has appeared in a Buddhist ceremony. 

Notice how he looks at the camera.

Yes, you pathetic pagan, you've been caught.

OnePeterFive has the pathetic details.

What secrets are hidden behind Pope Ratzinger's decision?

No doubt, you have probably heard of the report coming from Germany on the more than 500 boys abused physically and sexually at the Catholic boys choir school in Regensburg. Georg Ratzinger, the brother of Pope Josef Ratzinger denies any involvement.

Do not blame the victims.

It often takes twenty, thirty even forty years for the victims of violence and sexual abuse to find within themselves, the strength to deal with the matter and confront their tormentors. You must give the benefit of the doubt to the victims. A lawyer working on these matters once told me that, at first, he did not believe these accusations, it was just too convenient. But not long after he began defending the Church in a legal sense, he realised that the victims were telling the truth. His advice was to deal with the matter properly, lovingly and effectively with openness and compassion. Believe me when I write, I am simpatico with those victims and have empathy for them for reasons that are harmonious and consistent with their own experiences.

Image result for ratzinger brothers

Which brings me to the point with which I wish to get.

There has been suspicion that Josef Ratzinger knew what had happened in Regensburg and that he would be accused of being the "Pope with the abusive brother priest." 

If Josef Ratzinger renounced the papacy to protect his brother, himself or the Church from scandal, then that renouncement was under duress. 

Yet, the reality is, we do not know the truth. Therefore, there can be no mistaking that Jorge Bergoglio is indeed the Bishop of Rome and that makes him, the Pope. He has been accepted by the priests of Rome. 

But let us be clear, there is no expanded "petrine office." 

One day, the truth will be known, for now, this is all we have and we have to suffer it.

No, I am wrong, we have Our Lord Jesus Christ with whom we shall remain notwithstanding the rats and cockroaches that have overrun the sinking ship.

Offensive picture and post?

It seems that my post with the picture of Jesuit Anthony Spadaro and the Filipino Cardinal Tagle has elicited some criticism. Some of my readers have been offended, that I provoked ridicule upon these men and that it was uncharitable and elicited uncharitable comments.

Far be it from me to deny any priest a drink of Stolichnaya or Bailey's or Grande Marnier. Heck, one was over for dinner on Tuesday night, and he enjoyed some Rose in the gardent before dinner with Fox and I and then a nice bottle of Monasterio with the barbecued lamb. 

But when one considers the volume on that bar, the picture over it, the suffering of Catholics in the Middle East and the distress at the state of the crisis which we have found ourselves in due to these men, I have a hard time showing any sympathy to these two.

Cocaine parties.

Homosexual orgies.

Appointing of pro-abortionists to commissions. 

Here we have a priest and cardinal, both confidants of the Bishop of Rome appearing in a photo showing complete disregard for the state of the world but rejoicing in the lap of luxury.

The scandal is caused by those who scandalise, not by those who report it.

"Pope" Bergoglio doubts his own orthodoxy - doubt no longer George!

What kind of intellectual pygmy in the realm of theology and philosophy is this Bishop of Rome who would need to ask if his crowning work, the abominable Amoris Laetitita, is "orthodox."

But he is no "intellectual pygmy." He knows exactly what he is doing.

Perhaps this is more of a "mafia" style. You know, a Mafia Don is caught in the act of something untoward by an underling and he says, "What did you see?" eliciting the response, "See? I didn't see anything?"

In a stunning revelation, his official "interpreter," Austrian Cardinal Christophe Schönborn, revealed that he had assured Bishop of Rome Bergoglio that this filthy and scandalous document penned by a committee of miscreants was "orthodox." and that assurance gave him "comfort."

Featured Image

The mask fell long ago on this papacy and the filthy minions around it. It is only now that it has become more clear to so many more.

The Spadaro's, Martin's and other priestly, clericalist boobs on Twitter can try to defend this monstrous intellectually bankrupt papacy, but it is no longer possible.

May God deliver us from this persecution without delay and send us a truly holy Pope who will restore all things in Christ.

Destroying Christianity from within

Pretty smart for an atheist, eh?

Well, Holy Father, do you have more to tell us?

Pope Benedict XVI sent a message to be read at the Requiem of Cardinal Meisner.

What struck me particularly in the last conversations with the Cardinal, now gone home, was the natural cheerfulness, the inner peace and the assurance he had found. We know that it was hard for him, the passionate shepherd and pastor of souls, to leave his office, and this precisely at a time when the Church had a pressing need for shepherds who would oppose the dictatorship of the zeitgeist, fully resolved to act and think from a faith standpoint. Yet I have been all the more impressed that in this last period of his life he learned to let go, and live increasingly from the conviction that the Lord does not leave his Church, even if at times the ship is almost filled to the point of shipwreck.

Papa Joseph Ratzinger abandoned the ship. The rats on the ship will be running scared now that he has revealed his thoughts. Will his jailers let him get away with this statement, or will his, be the next, "Requiem."

There was a time in which I had great love and affection for this man. He was the grandfather I never knew, the father I missed, my favourite uncle now long gone.

It's time for the so-called, "Emeritus," to come clean with the rest of us about the reality in which we are now living.

Does the CCCB liturgy head, Father Terry Fournier, believe in Transubstantiation?

Nota Bene: I have most certainly written to the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops regarding this. They have not responded. They never do. They have had plenty of time to respond to my letter and to this article. They have not. 

Do not sit out there and accuse this writer of "grave sin" because I reported what the priest interviewed should have corrected right after it appeared in the press. Did he not read it? Did he not see what the reporter wrote? Should he not have contracted the reporter to retract or clarify? Should he not have written here or responded to the email stating that he asked The Star for a correction or clarification?

How dare you sit in judgement of this writer.

Go ask the priest!

There has been apoplectic hysteria in the secular media about the circular letter from the Church on the proper matter for the bread to become consecrated as the Body of Our Lord at the Holy Mass. The issue has been quite misconstrued and distorted by an ignorant press. The fact is, the Church has always held this position, since the matter of "gluten-free" anything became an issue. 

We have Monsignors using money from who knows where to buy cocaine for a sodomite orgy in the Vatican - a situation totally ignored by the secular press, but this is what they have spent a week reporting to discredit the Church for the few Celiac sufferers who cannot consume Blessed Sacrament under one species, even though the other is available.

Anyone who cannot receive Body of the Lord under the form of bread, can receive the Blood of Christ under what was wine, even a child and even at the traditional Latin Mass.

Look, if there is no gluten, then it is not wheat flour, it does not make bread and there is no confection of the Blessed Sacrament, no transubstantiation, period!

This is not a new instruction by the Church, it is simply a restatement of the facts for the reason that the abuse is occurring by errant priests and bishops and the result is that the Sacrament simply isn't!

Invalid matter does not make for a Sacrament!

The Toronto Star is a notorious and near-bankrupt rag of anti-Catholic bigotry and leftism and it has joined the parade. What the Star writes on the matter is not the point, it is who is interviewed and what is said that must be exposed to the Catholic faithful.

Andrea Adam, a rather poorly catechized Catholic mother has a child suffering from Celiac's disease. Mrs. Adam would not accept her parish priest's decision that gluten-free hosts would not be provided. The Toronto Star reporter states that "in the end, Adam took her daughter to Ottawa, where she was able to receive Holy Communion with a gluten-free host."

I've got news for Andrea Adam.

Your daughter was not, "able to receive Holy Communion."  S
he received a substance made from non-wheat flour that was nothing more than that.

Did know priest ever tell the poor woman this? 

Note that this was Ottawa, under the nose of Archbishop Terence Prendergast, S.J.!

Now, for more.

Terry Fournier is a priest of the Diocese of Sault Ste. Marie and is National Director of Office of Liturgy (English Sector) for the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops. Fournier is quoted in the Toronto Star article as follows:

Did you catch that?

"Symbolizes the blood of Christ."

The reporter does not place the phrase, which symbolizes the blood of Christ, in quotation marks. 

Why is this? Did Father say, "don't quote me," with a wink, wink and a nudge, nudge? Is there a reason why the writer quotes him, but does not, at the same time?

I think Father Terry Fournier and Bishop Crosby, President of the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops, should confirm whether the Grand Pub-ha of the liturgical mess of the 
mass that occurs in Canada actually believes in Transubstantiation and the Real Presence, Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Our Lord Jesus Christ in the Eucharistic species under the appearance of bread and wine.

Yes, or no, Father Fournier, which is it?

Oh, and, Your Grace, what of that parish in Ottawa with the invalid matter?

Vatican targets and insults faithful Catholics - The Unholy See

The gross insult to faithful, American (and many Canadians by extension) Catholics by Tony Spadaro is below. If one says that the Bishop of Rome did not know about it he surely does now. 

In this screed, he also targets Michael Voris and the folks at ChurchMilitant. By extension, this Jesuit attacks individual Catholics, including those of us who blog and think along the same lines as Michael Voris which to me, is to think with the Church. The Church of my childhood, the Church of my parents, the Church of my Maronite ancestors.

We did not ask for this. We were living in peace until that March in 2013. We have continued, in spite of the insults, degradation and heretical statements of the Bishop of Rome to continue to remain loyal to the Our Lord Jesus Christ and His Church and the Rock of Peter and to do the work necessary and to which we have been called. In my case, it is the weekly chanting of the true and proper Mass in a community two hours from my home. A community growing, with many children, with an organist now ready to go on to Catholic college and her 12 year old sister preparing to take over playing 14 Gregorian Masses, five Creeds and more. My work continues in Toronto with the assistance and training for the proper and true Roman Mass. I will not be stopped. You must not be stopped.

This screed is a disgrace but it must be seen by all of us as a badge of honour.

Never, did I think, I would live to be insulted by the Bishop of Rome.

Evangelical Fundamentalism and Catholic Integralism in the USA: A surprising ecumenism

Antonio Spadaro S.J., Editor-in-chief of La Civiltà Cattolica

Marcelo Figueroa, Presbyterian pastor, Editor-in-chief of the Argentinean edition of L’Osservatore Romano
In God We Trust. This phrase is printed on the banknotes of the United States of America and is the current national motto. It appeared for the first time on a coin in 1864 but did not become official until Congress passed a motion in 1956. A motto is important for a nation whose foundation was rooted in religious motivations. For many it is a simple declaration of faith. For others, it is the synthesis of a problematic fusion between religion and state, faith and politics, religious values and economy.

Religion, political Manichaeism and a cult of the apocalypse
Religion has had a more incisive role in electoral processes and government decisions over recent decades, especially in some US governments. It offers a moral role for identifying what is good and what is bad.
At times this mingling of politics, morals and religion has taken on a Manichaean language that divides reality between absolute Good and absolute Evil. In fact, after President George W. Bush spoke in his day about challenging the “axis of evil” and stated it was the USA’s duty to “free the world from evil” following the events of September 11, 2001.  Today President Trump steers the fight against a wider, generic collective entity of the “bad” or even the “very bad.” Sometimes the tones used by his supporters in some campaigns take on meanings that we could define as “epic.”
These stances are based on Christian-Evangelical fundamentalist principles dating from the beginning of the 20th Century that have been gradually radicalized. These have moved on from a rejection of all that is mundane – as politics was considered – to bringing a strong and determined religious-moral influence to bear on democratic processes and their results.
The term “evangelical fundamentalist” can today be assimilated to the “evangelical right” or “theoconservatism” and has its origins in the years 1910-1915. In that period a South Californian millionaire, Lyman Stewart, published the 12-volume work The Fundamentals. The author wanted to respond to the threat of modernist ideas of the time. He summarized the thought of authors whose doctrinal support he appreciated. He exemplified the moral, social, collective and individual aspects of the evangelical faith. His admirers include many politicians and even two recent presidents: Ronald Reagan and George W. Bush.
The social-religious groups inspired by authors such as Stewart consider the United States to be a nation blessed by God. And they do not hesitate to base the economic growth of the country on a literal adherence to the Bible. Over more recent years this current of thought has been fed by the stigmatization of enemies who are often “demonized.”
The panorama of threats to their understanding of the American way of life have included modernist spirits, the black civil rights movement, the hippy movement, communism, feminist movements and so on. And now in our day there are the migrants and the Muslims. To maintain conflict levels, their biblical exegeses have evolved toward a decontextualized reading of the Old Testament texts about the conquering and defense of the “promised land,” rather than be guided by the incisive look, full of love, of Jesus in the Gospels.
Within this narrative, whatever pushes toward conflict is not off limits. It does not take into account the bond between capital and profits and arms sales. Quite the opposite, often war itself is assimilated to the heroic conquests of the “Lord of Hosts” of Gideon and David. In this Manichaean vision, belligerence can acquire a theological justification and there are pastors who seek a biblical foundation for it, using the scriptural texts out of context.
Another interesting aspect is the relationship with creation of these religious groups that are composed mainly of whites from the deep American South. There is a sort of “anesthetic” with regard to ecological disasters and problems generated by climate change. They profess “dominionism” and consider ecologists as people who are against the Christian faith. They place their own roots in a literalist understanding of the creation narratives of the book of Genesis that put humanity in a position of “dominion” over creation, while creation remains subject to human will in biblical submission.
In this theological vision, natural disasters, dramatic climate change and the global ecological crisis are not only not perceived as an alarm that should lead them to reconsider their dogmas, but they are seen as the complete opposite: signs that confirm their non-allegorical understanding of the final figures of the Book of Revelation and their apocalyptic hope in a “new heaven and a new earth.”
Theirs is a prophetic formula: fight the threats to American Christian values and prepare for the imminent justice of an Armageddon, a final showdown between Good and Evil, between God and Satan. In this sense, every process (be it of peace, dialogue, etc.) collapses before the needs of the end, the final battle against the enemy. And the community of believers (faith) becomes a community of combatants (fight). Such a unidirectional reading of the biblical texts can anesthetize consciences or actively support the most atrocious and dramatic portrayals of a world that is living beyond the frontiers of its own “promised land.”
Pastor Rousas John Rushdoony (1916-2001) is the father of so-called “Christian reconstructionism” (or “dominionist theology”) that had a great influence on the theopolitical vision of Christian fundamentalism. This is the doctrine that feeds political organizations and networks such as the Council for National Policy and the thoughts of their exponents such as Steve Bannon, currently chief strategist at the White House and supporter of an apocalyptic geopolitics.[1]
“The first thing we have to do is give a voice to our Churches,” some say. The real meaning of this type of expression is the desire for some influence in the political and parliamentary sphere and in the juridical and educational areas so that public norms can be subjected to religious morals.
Rushdoony’s doctrine maintains a theocratic necessity: submit the state to the Bible with a logic that is no different from the one that inspires Islamic fundamentalism. At heart, the narrative of terror shapes the world-views of jihadists and the new crusaders and is imbibed from wells that are not too far apart. We must not forget that the theopolitics spread by Isis is based on the same cult of an apocalypse that needs to be brought about as soon as possible. So, it is not just accidental that George W. Bush was seen as a “great crusader” by Osama bin Laden.
Theology of prosperity and the rhetoric of religious liberty
Together with political Manichaeism, another relevant phenomenon is the passage from original puritan pietism, as expressed in Max Weber’s The Protestant Ethic and the Spirit of Capitalism, to the “Theology of Prosperity” that is mainly proposed in the media and by millionaire pastors and missionary organizations with strong religious, social and political influence. They proclaim a “Prosperity Gospel” for they believe God desires his followers to be physically healthy, materially rich and personally happy.
It is easy to note how some messages of the electoral campaign and their semiotics are full of references to evangelical fundamentalism. For example, we see political leaders appearing triumphant with a Bible in their hands.
Pastor Norman Vincent Peale (1898-1993) is an important figure who inspired US Presidents such as Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and Donald Trump. He officiated at the first wedding of the current president and the funeral of his parents. He was a successful preacher. He sold millions of copies of his book The Power of Positive Thinking (1952) that is full of phrases such as “If you believe in something, you get it”, “Nothing will stop you if you keep repeating: God is with me, who is against me” or “Keep in mind your vision of success and success will come” and so on. Many prosperity prosperous televangelists mix marketing, strategic direction and preaching, concentrating more on personal success than on salvation or eternal life.
A third element, together with Manichaeism and the prosperity gospel, is a particular form of proclamation of the defense of “religious liberty.” The erosion of religious liberty is clearly a grave threat within a spreading secularism. But we must avoid its defense coming in the fundamentalist terms of a “religion in total freedom,” perceived as a direct virtual challenge to the secularity of the state.
Fundamentalist ecumenism
Appealing to the values of fundamentalism, a strange form of surprising ecumenism is developing between Evangelical fundamentalists and Catholic Integralists brought together by the same desire for religious influence in the political sphere.
Some who profess themselves to be Catholic express themselves in ways that until recently were unknown in their tradition and using tones much closer to Evangelicals. They are defined as value voters as far as attracting electoral mass support is concerned. There is a well-defined world of ecumenical convergence between sectors that are paradoxically competitors when it comes to confessional belonging. This meeting over shared objectives happens around such themes as abortion, same-sex marriage, religious education in schools and other matters generally considered moral or tied to values. Both Evangelical and Catholic Integralists condemn traditional ecumenism and yet promote an ecumenism of conflict that unites them in the nostalgic dream of a theocratic type of state.
However, the most dangerous prospect for this strange ecumenism is attributable to its xenophobic and Islamophobic vision that wants walls and purifying deportations. The word “ecumenism” transforms into a paradox, into an “ecumenism of hate.” Intolerance is a celestial mark of purism. Reductionism is the exegetical methodology. Ultra-literalism is its hermeneutical key.
Clearly there is an enormous difference between these concepts and the ecumenism employed by Pope Francis with various Christian bodies and other religious confessions. His is an ecumenism that moves under the urge of inclusion, peace, encounter and bridges. This presence of opposing ecumenisms – and their contrasting perceptions of the faith and visions of the world where religions have irreconcilable roles – is perhaps the least known and most dramatic aspect of the spread of Integralist fundamentalism. Here we can understand why the pontiff is so committed to working against “walls” and any kind of “war of religion.”
The temptation of “spiritual war”
The religious element should never be confused with the political one. Confusing spiritual power with temporal power means subjecting one to the other. An evident aspect of Pope Francis’ geopolitics rests in not giving theological room to the power to impose oneself or to find an internal or external enemy to fight. There is a need to flee the temptation to project divinity on political power that then uses it for its own ends. Francis empties from within the narrative of sectarian millenarianism and dominionism that is preparing the apocalypse and the “final clash.”[2] Underlining mercy as a fundamental attribute of God expresses this radically Christian need.
Francis wants to break the organic link between culture, politics, institution and Church. Spirituality cannot tie itself to governments or military pacts for it is at the service of all men and women. Religions cannot consider some people as sworn enemies nor others as eternal friends. Religion should not become the guarantor of the dominant classes. Yet it is this very dynamic with a spurious theological flavor that tries to impose its own law and logic in the political sphere.
There is a shocking rhetoric used, for example, by the writers of Church Militant, a successful US-based digital platform that is openly in favor of a political ultraconservatism and uses Christian symbols to impose itself. This abuse is called “authentic Christianity.” And to show its own preferences, it has created a close analogy between Donald Trump and Emperor Constantine, and between Hilary Clinton and Diocletian. The American elections in this perspective were seen as a “spiritual war.”[3]
This warlike and militant approach seems most attractive and evocative to a certain public, especially given that the victory of Constantine – it was presumed impossible for him to beat Maxentius and the Roman establishment – had to be attributed to a divine intervention: in hoc signo vinces.
Church Militant asks if Trump’s victory can be attributed to the prayers of Americans. The response suggested is affirmative. The indirect missioning for President Trump is clear: he has to follow through on the consequences. This is a very direct message that then wants to condition the presidency by framing it as a divine election. In hoc signo vinces. Indeed.
Today, more than ever, power needs to be removed from its faded confessional dress, from its armor, its rusty breastplate. The fundamentalist theopolitical plan is to set up a kingdom of the divinity here and now. And that divinity is obviously the projection of the power that has been built. This vision generates the ideology of conquest.
The theopolitical plan that is truly Christian would be eschatological, that is it applies to the future and orients current history toward the Kingdom of God, a kingdom of justice and peace. This vision generates a process of integration that unfolds with a diplomacy that crowns no one as a “man of Providence.”
And this is why the diplomacy of the Holy See wants to establish direct and fluid relations with the superpowers, without entering into pre-constituted networks of alliances and influence. In this sphere, the pope does not want to say who is right or who is wrong for he knows that at the root of conflicts there is always a fight for power. So, there is no need to imagine a taking of sides for moral reasons, much worse for spiritual ones.
Francis radically rejects the idea of activating a Kingdom of God on earth as was at the basis of the Holy Roman Empire and similar political and institutional forms, including at the level of a “party.” Understood this way, the “elected people” would enter a complicated political and religious web that would make them forget they are at the service of the world, placing them in opposition to those who are different, those who do not belong, that is the “enemy.”
So, then the Christian roots of a people are never to be understood in an ethnic way. The notions of roots and identity do not have the same content for a Catholic as for a neo-Pagan. Triumphalist, arrogant and vindictive ethnicism is actually the opposite of Christianity. The pope on May 9 in an interview with the French dailyLa Croix, said: “Yes Europe has Christian roots. Christianity has the duty of watering them, but in a spirit of service as in the washing of feet. The duty of Christianity for Europe is that of service.” And again: “The contribution of Christianity to a culture is that of Christ washing the feet, or the service and the gift of life. There is no room for colonialism.”
Against fear
Which feeling underlies the persuasive temptation for a spurious alliance between politics and religious fundamentalism? It is fear of the breakup of a constructed order and the fear of chaos. Indeed, it functions that way thanks to the chaos perceived. The political strategy for success becomes that of raising the tones of the conflictual, exaggerating disorder, agitating the souls of the people by painting worrying scenarios beyond any realism.
Religion at this point becomes a guarantor of order and a political part would incarnate its needs. The appeal to the apocalypse justifies the power desired by a god or colluded in with a god. And fundamentalism thereby shows itself not to be the product of a religious experience but a poor and abusive perversion of it.
This is why Francis is carrying forward a systematic counter-narration with respect to the narrative of fear. There is a need to fight against the manipulation of this season of anxiety and insecurity. Again, Francis is courageous here and gives no theological-political legitimacy to terrorists, avoiding any reduction of Islam to Islamic terrorism. Nor does he give it to those who postulate and want a “holy war” or to build barrier-fences crowned with barbed wire. The only crown that counts for the Christian is the one with thorns that Christ wore on high.[4]

Liars, filthy perverted and corrupt Churchmen

Surely, we are to give the benefit of the doubt to someone who states that something said against him or something attributed to him is untrue, is denied by him. 


Yet; I find myself believing Steve Skojec and Maike Hickson more than Greg Burke, parroting the instruction of his boss, who acts like a tinpot South American despot and the Cardinal that had not courage to stand up to the despot and now finds himself on the outside.

I am to give the benefit of the doubt to these men. Yet, I find it near impossible.

A Bishop of Rome, not a Holy Father, who denies the miracle of the loaves and fishes, that the real miracle was "sharing." Yes, "Pope" Bergoglio said this, look it up. 

A so-called "Pope" who delights in insulting the folk traditions of simple and faithful Catholics such as spiritual bouquets, calling them "rosary counters." Gosh, we could go on but there is not enough time in this post because truly, "time is greater than space," to write it all down. 

What filthy scoundrels. 

Cocaine parties. Sodomite orgies. Financial corruption. Priests such as James Martin, endangering souls by praising the homosexualist culture with impunity and without correction.

We are to believe these filthy, perverted, corrupt churchmen?

Like hell.

The Five Questions for Cardinal Muller - and the rest of us!

Steve Skojec and Maike Hickson of OnePeterFive have the breaking news of information from Germany and the dismissal of Cardinal Muller as Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.

Image result for muller francisThe story is based upon anonymous sources in Germany. Hickson, fluent in German, frequently writes on German matters and through German contacts. While this is not evidenciary and would in a court be considered, hearsay, and; one could say that it is in the realm of "fake news," given the pattern of this "papacy" and the continuing revelations of sodomy, drugs and orgies along with financial corruption in the Vatican, can it be discounted?

Muller was summoned to a meeting with Pope Bergoglio, expecting a normal business agenda. He was presented verbally with five questions, as follows:
According to this report, Cardinal Müller was called to the Apostolic Palace on 30 June, and he thus went there with his working files, assuming that this meeting would be a usual working session. The pope told him, however, that he only had five questions for him: 
  • Are you in favor of, or against, a female diaconate? “I am against it,” responded Cardinal Müller.
  • Are you in favor of, or against, the repeal of celibacy? “Of course I am against it,” the cardinal responded.
  • Are you in favor of, or against female priests? “I am very decisively against it,” replied Cardinal Müller.
  • Are you willing to defend Amoris Laetitia? “As far as it is possible for me,” the Prefect of the Congregation for the Faith replied: “there still exist ambiguities.”
  • Are you willing to retract your complaint concerning the dismissal of three of your own employees? Cardinal Müller responded: “Holy Father, these were good, unblemished men whom I now lack, and it was not correct to dismiss them over my head, shortly before Christmas, so that they had to clear their offices by 28 December. I am missing them now.”
Thereupon the pope answered: “Good. Cardinal Müller, I only wanted to let you know that I will not extend your mandate [i.e., beyond 2 July] as the Prefect of the Congregation for the Faith.” Without any farewell or explanation, the pope left the room. Cardinal Müller at first thought that the pope left in order to fetch a token of gratitude, and thus he waited patiently. But, there was no such gift, nor even an expression of gratitude for his service. The Prefect of the Papal Household, Archbishop Georg Gänswein, then had to explain to him that the meeting was over, and that it was time for him to leave.
At the time of this writing, we have not been able to obtain confirmation of these events from Cardinal Müller, nor from his secretary, to whom we reached out for comment. Similarly, we requested a comment from Greg Burke at the Vatican Press Office, but as of press time, we have received no response.
If this report is true – and, given the sources, we have little reason to doubt it – we can well imagine why Cardinal Meisner would have been distressed after hearing about this meeting in the hours before his death. Did these five questions with their yes or no answers, if indeed they were asked of Cardinal Müller, constitute a sort of reverse dubia? Were the Cardinal’s responses, insofar as they were in accordance with orthodox Catholic thought, the reason he was not asked to continue in his role as Prefect of the CDF? Of the five questions, three (female diaconate, priestly celibacy, and the promotion of Amoris Laetitia) have been widely discussed as part of the pope’s “reform” agenda. (It seems worthy of mention in this regard that Archbishop Luis Francisco Ladaria Ferrer, S.J., who has been tapped as Müller’s replacement as CDF Prefect, was appointed last year as President of the Commission for the Study of the Diaconate of Women.) But is the female priesthood really expected to be reviewed in relation to the female diaconate, even though Pope Francis has already personally affirmed the understanding that Pope John Paul II ruled definitively against the possibility? And what of the final alleged question — the one pertaining to the pope’s dismissal of three priests from the CDF last year without cause? If such a question were asked, was it merely a test of unquestioning obedience? Recall that the pope’s reported answer, when asked by Cardinal Müller about the dismissal of these three priests, was simply to say, “I am the pope, I do not need to give reasons for any of my decisions. I have decided that they have to leave and they have to leave.”
The whole article can be read at: 

Clearly, there is a massive fight in the curia. There are Catholics there who fear for what is happening under this Bishop of Rome, I will not state, this "Holy Father." It is time for them to come clean and state unequivocally the facts and to stand behind it with their identities.
It is time for Cardinal Muller to disclose all before Christ and the Catholic faithful. 

There is nothing more than the souls of millions of Catholics at stake, to say nothing of those Jews, Muslims, Hindus, Atheists and Protestants who will never now salvation because the Church of Man has taken over the Church of Christ and called him a liar.

There is one liar, from the beginning and there are those in the Church who do his bidding.

Now, to those five questions.

How do you answer?

The end of Summorum Pontificum?

There are rumours in French Catholic media, that according to a "friend" of the Bishop of Rome, Jorge Bergoglio, once the SSPX is reunited, and if Benedict XVI is dead, he will abolish Summorum Pontificum.

My thoughts.

If this is true, then it is one more reason for the SSPX to say, "no."

They are already Catholic. There is no schism and there never was. So, let's put that silly argument to rest right now.

What I will state is this.

If he does, he is the Son of Satan and the mask will be off.

It is no more simple than that.

New Bergoglian CDF Prefect Ferrer implicated in paedophile priest cover-up!

So, as long as he is not a priest, he is not the Church's responsibility?

Another scandal, this time, the new Jesuit Prefect Luis Laderia Ferrer who, together with Cardinal William Levada, laicised a child-molester priest and did not tell the police. That defrocked pervert priest later went on to rape 8 boys. 

The Church is in a crisis of filth and perversion. Where are the Cardinals and Bishops who will call this out and demand full disclosure and accountability?


Another sex scandal at the Vatican! This time it involved a confidante of Pope

Not a week passed, and the Vatican has already shaken the third turn-sex scandal. This time he is involved in a confidant of Pope Francis, Jesuit Luis Ladaria Ferrer, appointed Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in just last Sunday.

Recall - last Thursday treasurer of the Vatican, Australian Cardinal George Pell, has been formally accused of committing a sexual assault against dzieci.Kardynał Pell, who was prefect of the Secretariat. Economics, which is equivalent to the finance minister in the Vatican, the personality number three in the Catholic Church and the highest in the history of the Vatican dignitary, who has been accused in connection with the scandal concerning sexual abuse among the clergy.

Not yet faded echo of the scandal, and the Holy See rocked again. They tried to hide it for a few months, but the case is issued. It was important for the secretary of Cardinal, one of the closest collaborators of the Pope. Secretary of the organized gay party building above Sant'Uffizio (Holy Office), the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, where he is also taking cocaine. Moved "criminally" to the monastery at Monte Cassino he got there again in another sex scandal.

Read: Again unprecedented scandal at the Vatican! Cocaine and gay party in the Holy Office and the monastery at Monte Cassino. Is Pope Francis stand it?

The head of that secretary-homoseksulaisty and drug addict was Cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Mueller z Niemiec, prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, which Pope Francis dismissed last Saturday. The new prefect was the Spanish Jesuit and Archbishop Luis Francisco Ladaria Ferrer. Now it turns out, however, that he may be involved in a pedophile scandal.

"There had been two days of the decision of Pope Francis to change the position of Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, and already dark clouds hung over the head of his successor, Jesuit Luis Ferrer Ladarii" - writes on Facebook Jacek Pałasiński, long-press correspondent in Rome.

Newspaper, la Repubblica "L'Espresso article was published, the new prefect conceal one of the most notorious pedophile scandals in Italy. The authors describe a case of a pedophile priest Gianni Troty that, the decision was Archbishop Ferrer and his then-supervisor - b. Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith Williama Levady, was sentenced in 2012. The maximum sentence provided for the code of canon, ie. The dismissal from the clerical state .

Unfortunately - adds a journalist - was accompanied by judgment note, according to which, information about the judgment and reasons for leaving Father. Troty of the priests and the Order of the Little Works of Divine Providence, had not spread. Unless b. Trota priest again commits lewd acts on children.

"I obediently silent church structures, the Italian investigative authorities have not been notified, precisely because of the decision of Archbishop. Ferrera. And, unfortunately, Father. Trota again committed. He remained in the same small town as a coach ... children's football teams, boyish and girlish. The parents knew nothing about his past. Approx. ten boys and ten girls again was molested by him. Only in 2015. As a result of accusations of one of the boys parents b. Fr.. Trota was arrested last year and sentenced to 8 years in prison for molesting one of the boys. Soon they have to start another process for another rape. "In practice - write Fittipaldi and Foschini - destroyed an entire generation inhabitants of this town" - writes Pałasiński.

How to react to this information now Pope Francis? And if the Pope Francis will cope with the task of cleaning the church?

At the Cocco

"Pope" Bergoglio confirms himself as a globalist, one world government proponent! Not a word of Christ!

How long have evangelicals and others spoken of the formation of a "United States of Europe," as the Beast of the Apocalypse controlled by the Antichrist. How often did they call Rome, meaning the Catholic Church, the Whore of Babylon?

It's too bad that this Bishop of Rome, this "Pope" won't dialogue and encounter with his Cardinals on the doctrine of the faith at least as often as he meets with the atheist Eugenio Scalfari and the Masonic mouthpiece known as La Repubblica

He is promoting the antithesis of subsidiarity. It is evil. 

Not a word of Christ. 

Read it. You decide what we are dealing with.

Francesco Scalfari interview: "My plea to the G20 on migrants'
Last Thursday I received a phone call from Pope Francis. It was about noon and I was at the paper with my phone rang and a voice greeted me: it was His Holiness. I recognized him immediately. “Could you come over today? At 4?” I’ll be there for sure.
I dashed home and at 3:44 I was in the little sitting room at Santa Marta. The Pope came in a minute later. We embraced and then, seated facing each other, we started to swap idea, feelings, analyses of what is going on in the Church and then in the world.
Pope Francis told me that he was very worried about the summit meeting of the G20. “I’m afraid that there will be very dangerous alliances between Powers that have distorted visions of the world: America and Russia, China and North Korea, Russia and Assad in the war in Syria.” What is the danger of these alliances, Holiness? “The danger regarding immigration. We, you know this well, have as the principle problem and, unfortunately growing in the today’s world, that of poverty, of the weak, of the excluded, of whom emigrants are members. On the other hand there are countries where the majority of the poor don’t come from migratory streams but from social calamities of that country; others, instead, have little local poverty but they fear the invasion of migrants. That’s why the G20 worries me.”
Do you think, Holiness, that in global society as that in which we live the mobility of peoples is on the upswing, poor or not poor as they may be? “Let’s not fool ourselves: poor peoples have an attraction the continents and countries of old wealth. Above all Europe. I, too, have often thought about this problem and I have arrived at the conclusion that, not only for but also for this reason, Europe must assume as soon as possible a federal government and a federal parliament, not from individual confederated countries. You yourself have raised this topic many times, and have even spoken of it in the European parliament. It’s true, I’ve raised this many times.” And you received great applause and even standing ovations. “Yes, that’s so, but unfortunately that doesn’t mean much. They will do that if they figure out the truth: either Europe becomes a federal community or it won’t count for anything in the world.”
I have often written that Francis is a revolutionary. Think of beatifying Pascal, thinks the poor and immigrants, it calls for a federated Europe, and - last but not least - puts me in the car with his arms.
A pope like this we never had.
