A Positive Effect Of Last Week’s Chaos
In another amusing development, the Beatification of Paul VI has been almost ignored in the uproar caused by last week's events.
Think of it: it is clear that Pope Paul's Beatification was planned as the final apotheosis of the Great Push Towards Hell. On the day Francis gloriously proclaims a New Religion for our time, his Glorious Predecessor, the man who saw the beginning of this Glorious Push brought to completion in the Council, is also remembered. Look, world, how the Spirit is Guiding them both!
No doubt, Stage I of the Revolution had to be celebrated in the same day as Stage II made its formal, triumphal appearance in the world. The Synod Fathers would have been praised as the new and more daring generation of Council Fathers, building what they once started to new, breathtaking heights. Francis, the Humble Innovator, would have stood there in front of the entire planet, hailed by atheist, perverts, dissenters, and assorted enemies of the Church as he says to those he has just betrayed that he is merely continuing on the path of the V II “tradition”. By beatifying Paul in death, he would have beatified himself in life.
It wasn't to be. A burning defeat is what TMAHICH got instead. The final address to the Bishops had to be hastely rewritten, trying to mask Francis' complicity with the heretics – actually: Francis' steering of the heresy – and attempting to paint him as the good old uncle, saying “tut-tut” to both Traditionalists and Heretics in that oh so gentle, amiable way of his when he is not massacring some beautiful Catholic order.
In all this mess, Pope Paul was as irrelevant in death as he was in life. A fitting destiny for the man who refused to stop the already clear drive towards betrayal, and allowed all this madness to start in earnest.
Two words on this beatification (Paul does not deserve better) to close. I do not know if the man is in hell, and it is to be hoped he saved his sorry Modernist head in the end. He certainly got the grace of a slow death with the sacraments and abundant time to repent, so one can only hope he made the most of it. Still, Beatifications are not binding for Catholics. Therefore, Yours Truly will hold this beatification to be the same as everything Francis does:

Francis’ heavy-handed bungling of the sinod also seems to have finally prompted Ratzinger to speak in opposition to some of what has been going on: http://www.catholicworldreport.com/Blog/3466/pope_emeritus_benedict_xvi_dialogue_cannot_substitute_for_mission.aspx
He is actually criticizing (albeit indirectly) Francis for the first time. Unbelievable – and very welcome.
I have read it. I think I will write about it during the weekend…
My grandfather use to say , “Paolo sest te taglia la testa”
If I were Benedict I would have sent Burke as my representative.
In one of Father Malachi Martin’s novels, maybe Windswept House, the fictional character (Paul Vi) is on his deathbed. His confessor comes out of the room ashen-faced.
I truly hope the confessor at least heard a good confession…
Perche il diavolo fa le pentole, ma non i coperti.
I ignore if the same is spoken in English.
No real translation in English I would say.
(though in my parts we say “coperchi”).
Some people say “the truth will out”, but it does not give the sense.
Sorry, Mundy, it was a misspelling.Of course it’ s ” coperchi”, not ” coperti”
Ah, I thought it was a regional usage. Not so improbable, after all…
