Heresy In The Cemetery

Everything for the buddies...

Everything for the buddies…




Stellar article from John Vennari, that I got from Angelqueen. It is long, but well worth your time.

The alleged fact is described in this way:

“Father David told us that because Tony [Palmer] was not a Roman Catholic he had to ask his bishop’s permission to celebrate the requiem and though Tony’s wife and children are Roman Catholics, permission still had to be given for the requiem. The bishop agreed but said that Tony could not be buried as a bishop as he was not a Roman Catholic bishop. However, Pope Francis said he should and could be buried as a bishop, and so that put an end to that little bit of ecclesiastical nonsense

I do not know whether this is true, and I think the Vatican should make a statement on this. I suspect there is more to it, because I cannot believe Francis is as stupid as the man reports. Albeit… one wonders. If Francis has made himself culpable of such a heretical behaviour for the sake of his buddy, this truly tells you everything you need to know about his worth as a Pope. It would also mean that when he said “brother bishop” he really meant it. Heresy pure and simple. 

The article goes on to discuss the particular view of the likes of Francis and the late non-bishop Palmer concerning “unity”. The operative word here is “convergence”. Convergence is, mind, not conversion. Every talk of “convergence” implies that there’s something wrong in the Church qua Church, and a new “something” will one day be created that is a fusion of Catholicism and Protestantism. To talk, or even think, in this way is to deny Christ’s Church, full stop.

No one has, in this perspective, to “convert” to anything, but rather they march in joyous heretical concord toward the creation of some vague and undetermined new entity; which, whatever it is, cannot be the Church of which Francis has said that he believes everything she believes and professes everything she professes.  Quoting Vennari again: “Or as Francis says, “no one is coming home,” but we “meet in the middle” “.

Vennari says it very fittingly:

The new ecumenism that emanated from Vatican II, and that is fostered by Pope Francis, is a head-on-collision with the Catholic doctrine and practice of the past. [7] The Catholic Faith is not the personal plaything of the Pope that he can remold at will to accommodate the ecumenical spirit born of Protestantism. He is bound to teach the consistent doctrine of the centuries without change. To do otherwise is to be unfaithful, irresponsible and unpastoral.

I would add: heretical. I have written often on this blog that Francis works against Catholicism. He works against Catholicism because his mindframe is hostile to Catholicism. I am actually persuaded that he hates it, which is why he spends as much time as he can among Proddies and Heathens, disparages the Vatican as a place rich in leprosy, and freely insults all those who, with their pious behaviour and solid Catholic faith, remind him of Her Truth and Her beauty.

Please follow the link and enjoy the rest of this excellent article. It is consoling to know that the current madness meets such well-argued and articulated resistance.

  1. No offense meant towards Mr. Vennari and by extension, Mr. Michael Daly, who posted on his blog that he attended this Roman Catholic Requiem Mass and also posted that the Pope approved Tony Palmer to be “buried as a Catholic Bishop”, but I’m still having trouble believing this story. Not that I can’t believe that our current Pope wouldn’t do such a thing, but why can’t I find anything about this rather stupendous heresy anywhere except at Mr. Venarri’s and Mr. Daly’s blog?

    Either way, Mr. Vennari’s article is very good, as is usual. But it troubles me that there’s no credible source for this; in fact, nothing that I can find, credible or not, other than Mr. Daly’s blog post. I suppose that should actually encourage me that it’s probably not true, but unfortunately an act such as this is absolutely within the realm of possibilities for Frankie.

    • I think it would be because of the following:
      1.There were few witnesses.
      2. The press is so accustomed to heresy and so ignorant of such things they do not consider it worth of the 337th article about how the Pope is destroying everything Catholic.
      I have read around the man who has reported about the event is told to be serious and reliable and as you say, it matches with Francis’ character.
      Having said that, I wasn’t there.

  2. Dear Mundabor, Have a look at this link:
    Look at this weeks newsletter, page 3. It couldn’t get much worse. Or could it?
    Terry Pearson

  3. How dissapointing are the recent actions of this Pope. Pray that “May his days be few: and his bishopric let another take.” – Ps. 108:8

    I don’t like saying this but I am forced to do so


    • No sin at all. A Catholic has the possibility to pray for the painless demise of a Pope if this is motivated by love for the Church and fear of the damage the pope will continue to inflict, rather than personal hate.
      I am happy with resignation too, btw, but if the radio would announce tomorrow that he has died you would not see me cry one single tear.

  4. The theory: “The pope is not the master of Tradition, he is instead subject to Tradition”. Fr. Hesse

    The reality: “He now is the pope and he can do whatever he wants. Many will be surprised with what Francis will do. In order to do this, a rupture with traditions will be needed, to leave behind the corrupt Vatican curia to give way to a universal church”. Boff

    The only constraints on Freakie Francis are self imposed, as he himself has described in his interview at liberal AmericaMagazine: “This discernment takes time. For example, many think that changes and reforms can take place in a short time. I believe that we always need time to lay the foundations for real, effective change.”

    For “discernment”, Francis means being politically savvy. That will include not only propaganda to lull the masses, but also appointing liberal bishops and canon law judges, etc.
