Christ’s Special Forces

Catholic X Flottiglia MAS in action.

Catholic X Flottiglia MAS in action.

 

I could abuse Winnie now and say that, well, seldom was so much owed by one billion plus to less than three thousand. 

Of course, I do not believe that heresy at the Synod was stopped in its tracks by the petition. But I think that there are voices that weigh more than other voices, and a type of shouting that goes straight to the heart of the matter. Steve Skojec informs us of rumours that the walkout petition reached the ears of the pope. Which does not mean that the Pope cares for Catholicism, of course. It means that people smarter than him have used the petition as a useful argument to persuade Francis – or to give him a way to save face by being persuaded – that it was wise to cave in to Catholics… again. 

Now, these are rumours. They do not say, in themselves, anything new. We knew already that Francis would do whatever he can to promote heresy, if he could be sure he will get away with it. Conversely, we knew also that Francis has a strong record of backpedaling when he sees the wall approaching, and starts to realise how hard that wall will be. 

But notice this: less than three thousand have punched so much above their weight, that I have still not recovered from the shock.

Masses do not make history. Individuals do. At times, a spark will go out that ignites a great fire; this happens because everything was ready, and only the spark failed. But you still need that spark, without which nothing would happen. And you, dear readers, should be willing to be part of it. 

The petition had less than three thousand signatures. But even those less than three thousand were good enough to become matter of serious conversation, and a valid proxy for the nuclear explosion that would have very probably followed any proclamation of heresy at the Synod. 

Traditionalist Catholics aren’t a mass. The Catholic masses did not even notice, or barely registered, that the Synod took place. Traditionalist Catholics are elite troops. They are Christ’s Special Forces. The S.W.A.T. The GSG9. The Spetsnaz. The NOCS, or Decima Flottiglia MAS. A bunch of them have managed to cause great disturbance within the very room where the Evil Clown incessantly brays. Of course they weren’t the decisive factor in heresy being stopped. Only in movies a bunch of people win wars. But they certainly were a factor, and a factor of astonishing proportions compared to their tiny number.

The Church does not work in numbers. Catholic Truths are so solid, and the thirst of men of good will for them is so strong, that deception will never work as long as there are strong men and women ready to stand up in defence of Christ, wherever the danger may come from.

My rosary today is for those 2,800 who have accomplished such a successful mission. I will try  not to think of what would have happened if the signatures had been 30,000, or 100,000, because it would utterly ruin my day. But I am so thankful for the 2,800, and the way the Lord helped those who help themselves. 

Masses do not make history. Individuals do. In blogs, fora, and more private occasions, they stand up for Christ without “ifs” or “buts”. They influence many, because this is what strong people always do. Look at how much could so few achieve. You are not called to be a silent spectator. You are called to act, and to – with God’s grace – punch above your weight.

Many other battles are in front of us. There will be other petitions like this one. The heretical asymmetrical warfare and subversion tactics have only just begun.  

Be one of those individuals. Join Christ’s Special Forces.

  1. How and where do I sign up to join these forces.?

  2. Excellent!

    Here is another money quote:

    “There is also, I’m told, a general fear of social media within the higher echelons of our Church. It is not well understood, and they are unable to gauge effectively the power that it wields in shaping the narrative. This makes them vary wary of provoking a viral firestorm of opposition. The petition, for example, may have only garnered 2800 signatures, but it was brought up during a Synod press conference with Cardinal Pell. It was the reason I was invited to write an op-ed about the Synod in the Washington Post. It was then referenced by Vaticanista Antonio Socci.”

    This is true.

    I have watched this exact thing play out in the two Polish elections this year. Independant bloggers and twitter users were able to demolish the post-communist stooges and give a majoryity gov and presidency to the Catholics. FIrst time since communism fell that the Poles have a majority government.

    This social media aspect is something that we as bloggers need to promote.

    S.A.

    • ‘There is also, I’m told, a general fear of social media within the higher echelons of our Church.’
      Agreed, a real money quote. As the block parties on Twitter testified, these guys are out of their depth. As One Mad Mom puts it so beautifully: meet the laity!
      Deo gratias!

    • Thks.

      Yes it is the money quote.

      What seems funny is also that Francis “thinks he’s got his hand on the pulse of the crowd”. How many tyrants thought exactly that?

    • He’s got the pulse of the wrong crowd, no doubt.
      Which is what causes the slow self-destruction of his papacy.
      He fancies himself popular. The lead prostitute in the brother is also very popular.

  3. DOUTHAT

    Heresy’s Huns
    Have now begun
    To reveal their
    Natures’, true

    Pumped up with pride
    Confuse and divide
    They’re pushing us out
    Of the pew

    But there are real priests
    Who bring us His Feasts
    Expecting no praise
    Or back pat

    Daily Mass, lay their lives,
    Sweet sylphs do despise,
    Christ’s men of surprise
    Never doubt that!!

  4. I signed the petition.

    I’m sure that maybe a million souls now will come out of the woodwork and claim to have signed it.

    But I did.

    And I’m thrilled that it just might have probably pissed the mad Argie-Bargie off.

  5. I signed the petition with not much hope, I admit. Thank you for your encouraging words an your rosary. I will also put your name in mine own rosary.

  6. This is a good post, as we cannot be afraid of speaking the truth of Jesus Christ & his Church, as many ‘Catholics’ are terrified to proclaim and defend the one truth today. Also, Bishop Athanasius Schneider is definitely part of the Catholic ‘Delta Force’.

  7. It’s funny how such a little thing can sometimes make your day. I’ve been asking myself if signing the petition hadn’t been a waste of time. Having read your post, I’m now happy that I did sign it. I’m.smiling for the first time in a long time. God Bless You!

  8. So, this is why my (and others) letter-writing suggestion could have worked, if there were names behind it, and a time period. I sincerely believe that real Catholics can have a serious effect, if there is persistence, because we are on the right side! Thanks for this encouraging message.

    • My personal take on this is that theletters being private, Francis would have ignored them if they had been one million.
      The biggest element of the 2,800 signatures is in the public shaming of the Pope.
      The Pope fears what comes to light, not what remains as a private warning to him.

  9. You’re probably right…. 😉

  10. Signing the petition was worth it even for the secondary benefit of making the papal blood pressure rise a bit! Thanks for your prayers, M, and some Ave Maria’s are being sent up for you, too.

  11. Very great efforts. Appreciated. M. I just felt that it does not matter, 28,000 or million signatures has no effect to this satanic pope for he is so arrogant and ignorant that he takes no critic at all. Did he ever mention any petitions send to him so far. Didn’t he? I’m afraid not.
    He’d suppressed, distorted good synod fathers’ words and sent disinformation to Catholics and public; so we’re going to trust him? Hell not. We should find some effective ways to hit right at his cunning hard head. I suggest we raise our concerns and send to all good cardinals, bishops, priests, lay people, and all good Catholic magazines, newspapers, blogs asking for organizing the ‘Crusade’ against this ‘Destroyer.’ May the Lord help us and St. Michael, the Archangel defend us in battle.
