From the always excellent Rorate Caeli, a quotation from leo XIII’s Testem Benevolentiae.
The underlying principle of these new opinions [he is speaking of Americanism] is that, in order the more easily to attract those who differ from her, the Church should shape her teachings more in accord with the spirit of the age and relax some of her ancient severity and make some concessions to new opinions. Many think that these concessions should be made not only in regard to ways of living, but even in regard to doctrines which belong to the deposit of the faith. They contend that it would be opportune, in order to gain those who differ from us, to omit certain points of her teaching which are of lesser importance, and to tone down the meaning which the Church has always attached to them. It does not need many words, beloved son, to prove the falsity of these ideas if the nature and origin of the doctrine which the Church proposes are recalled to mind. … Let it be far from anyone’s mind to suppress for any reason any doctrine that has been handed down. Such a policy would tend rather to separate Catholics from the Church than to bring in those who differ.
This sounds like a declaration of war, ante litteram, to Francis and his troop of Modernists.
The war is now. In fact, it’s always war and it will always be war. Satan does not sleep.
The war is now. Francis and his troop of heretics are the enemy.
Remember this as the long-dreaded days of the Synod approach; days which might well end with a nulla di fatto, but could also plunge the Church in her most terrible crisis ever.
I am confident that Francis, who is a heretic but also a Jesuit and a coward, will understand what is good for him and will avoid pushing the nuclear button.
But the simple reality is, there is no knowing the limits of the arrogance and stupidity of this man.
Let us pray St Michael the Archangel that he may defend us in this particular battle.

War indeed, Sir…and a war I wrote of last October (http://hector1088.blogspot.com/2014/10/war-is-upon-you.html) and re-posted in a modified form this past month (http://hector1088.blogspot.com/2015/09/war-is-upon-you-part-deux-and-bishops.html)
It doesn’t take a General or a Papal Theologian on his knees to see this war playing out before our very eyes and to go on the offensive.
St. Michael needs to swing his flaming sword, and soon…
Many well-known catholics (I deplore using the word “traditionalst”) in Italy are now being very outspoken as regards to the issue of the seat of Peter vacant being vacant as of Vatican ll.
That is a wrong way, that leads exactly nowhere. The solution of the problem begins with the acknowledgment of the problem. Escape in a fantasy world will not bring any result.
The voice in the desert of those traditional Catholics in Italy have been raised with one intention that this false, evil pope must be unseated before he turns the Church upside down. Saint Michael, be our protection against the wickedness and snares of this devil.
