Oh well …
The Supreme Pontiff, Pope Jackass, moves the Corpus Christi procession from Rome to the “peripheral” Ostia. It has been done before, and this is not the first Pope who wants to move to “the peripheries”. However, this comes after a 40 year uninterrupted tradition of celebrating in the very centre of Rome. It s, as you expected, not casual.
This one is the Pope of the curas villeros. He does not see anything “wrong” in a SJW priest. However, he does see much wrong in tradition: those things which are passed on, are transmitted from one generation to the next. It is, therefore, fitting that he want to disrupt a beautiful Roman tradition by making of it something else; something which he will then certainly link to his own social justice novel wannabe gospels for the benefit of the dumb and the uncatechised.
We do not care for Pope Jackass. We care for Catholicism.
Do not yield to curiosity or “the event”.
Please boycott every activity linked to these people until they have become Catholic again. Cardinals , bishops, all of them. They have become the subject of jokes.
Let us make them history.
After Bishop Ticona has vehemently denied having a mistress and her children on the side, Adelante la Fe has published more details.There are addresses and schools , there are multiple witnesses, and solemn oaths. In short, the bishop is in trouble.
However this ends, it is clear that Francis’ ignorance and arrogance have, once again, prevailed over common sense and sound stewardship.
You don’t appoint a cardinal because he is an Indio and his father was a shoeshine. You have the men you want to have your reputation measured on carefully vetted, and you only appoint those above suspicion. You entrust the task of vetting candidates to people who know what they’re doing and can speak frankly to you.
Francis appoints Bishops and Cardinals accordingly to whim, sympathy and ideological proximity (= shared hate for the Church). He is obviously not able to select decent men for the task, men whom he can trust. He is, possibly, never told the inconvenient truths about the one or other canfidate for fear of his stubbornness and temper. He is, possibly, truly so stupid and arrogant that he is informed of the problems and decides to go on nevertheless out of pure childish, stubborn idiocy.
Francis is seriously, seriously incompetent. There is nothing that he can manage to get right, not even the appointment of wrong Bishops and Cardinals. He is, I am sure, at this point the joke of half the planet’s priests – nay, make it three quarters – when they can talk to each other in confidence.
In the tragedy we are living, at least it is the source of some sad amusement to see in how many ways this nincompoop can embarrass himself. In a real South American dictatorship it would be, leaving apart the poor victims, hilarious to watch. As it is, it is just a huge disgrace with some laughs thrown in for mercy.
Can’t wait for Francis scalding all the Bolivian Bishops, because it’s obviously their faults, and they resigning en masse.
So, has the newly appointed Cardinal (emeritus) Ticona wife and children? We don’t know because we weren’t there. However, the Cardinal defends himself saying that the rumours that he has a wife are unfounded. Well I believe that! What I would want to see is Bishop Ticona denying that he had a mistress.
You may wonder why I am so suspicious of the old.
This is because is an advocate of the poor as per link above. I deeply mistrust priests who are advocates of worldly causes. It seems to me that, more often than not, such advocacies reflect, firstly, loss of faith, and secondly, something to hide.
Does this have to be true in the case of Bishop Ticona?
Perish the thought.
It can simply be that Francis has fund a way to elevate to the Cardinalate another one of his social justice warriors and full-fledged clan members without being – like Errazuriz and Maradiaga – implicated in scandals. Stranger things happened at sea.
Still: beware the advocates of the poor.
Even when they do not come bearing mistresses.
Bradley Manning, who is now smuggling himself under the name “Chelsea”, has announced her/his/its imminent suicide with several tweets, including one from the top of a roof. We are informed that whatever that person is (I vote “a he, but raving mad”) is now safe at home. The tweets have been conveniently deleted.
Several thoughts come to mind.
1. The idea of staging oneself in the act of committing suicide is another prime example of the childishness and self-centredness of this mutilated guy. These people have “me,me,me” all over their mind.
2. In sane times, mad people were charitably put in the madhouse to avoid them harming themselves or others. In mad times, mad people are considered sane. Except they obviously still aren’t. Therefore, they will harm themselves in the middle of the very people supporting or celebrating their madness. The Revolution eats her own trannies.
3. The virtue-signalling of the left walks over corpses. Even my cat knows that trannies are extremely unstable people. Some hard leftists wanted this whatever-he-has-mutilated-himself-to to run for office. The mind boggles. Of course, some people must have considered the higher probability of suicide following the strain of a Senate campaign, the polemics and the unavoidable defeat, and thought: “who cares?” It actually seems Kensington was simply ignored; which, to these people, is kryptonite.
4. We don’t know whether Manning was just putting himself on a stage like a Tranny Diva, or was in fact really on the verge of committing suicide. In both cases, my most charitable word of support is: repent. If that happens, there is hope. Unless that happens, all the “support” will have one very predictable outcome: hell.
In the end, the guy did not throw himself from the roof. Perhaps he realised he would be called a dick for that.
Which, after ridding oneself of one’s, must have been too much to bear.
The result of the Irish referendum was predictable already, but perhaps it is even more brutal than expected. Only one county against the slaughter of innocent unborn babies, all the others in favour. This Country has already passed so-called same-sex legislation, and it was not realistic to think that if a countries embraces iniquity when it does not alter their personal lives they will do so when it is about having their lives disrupted by, erm, a God-sent human life.
This is, of course, no excuse for the Evil Clown or his clergy. As a whole, and starting from Francis, they have been either silent concerning the Irish referendum, or so tame that it was exactly the same in the end.
Nor am I thinking here only of the pre-ballot day behaviour. The defence of human life must be a constant preoccupation, not an occasional remark. Pope Francis’ pathetic PR stunt about the phone call with the woman thinking of an abortion is not anywhere near actually speaking out clearly and forcefully.
Francis will visit Ireland in a few month. You can bet whatever you want that there will be nothing more than a mild reference to the fact that the Church allows itself to respectfully disagree with the referendum’s outcome, without obviously taking everything from the rights and dignity of women blablah, blah, blah and blah.
Christianity is disappearing from this Continent because the clergy is not interested in keeping it in. This has been happening for 55 years now, and no, the efforts of the likes of John Paul The Not So Great were also way short of the mark, albeit thry appear now gigantic when compared to the deeds of our “no obsesding about abortion” jackass in white.
It is no use keeping the pious illusion that our hierarchy is merely incompetent. It is either cowardly or complicitous. Very often, it is both.
When, in one thousand years, the collapse of Christianity in the XX and XXI Centuries will be examined, there is no chance that anyone will attribute it to a wrong strategy, or to changed external influences. The Church is called to shape external influences and fight them with all her strenght, not simply acquiesce to them and say “hey, it’s the times we live in”. You can win or lose. But you fight the good fight.
Francis has shown once again that, if you asked him, he would tell you that the present times have a major problem:
They are still too Catholic.
I can easily imagine him, one day, as pit neighbour in hell of the Irish Prime Minister, who calls the pro life legislation a shame for the Country. But at least, this evil guy is not the Pope.
Today Ireland decides whether to change its Constitution to allow a mother to legally kill her unwanted baby in the womb.
You would think the Pope makes his voice heard.
As I write this, I have not read anything. Certainly nothing that would make real headlines, that would force millions of people to think that even such a Pope is against abortion.
But as we all know, Francis does not want to “obsess” about abortion.
Mind: a couple of days after this referendum is concluded, he will make a low-volume statement against abortion; this will be promptly picked up by all the Pollyannas out there in order to berate us and tell us how evil we are for our unspeakable calumnies of The Spirit’s Chosen One.
Francis will always say what is convenient on the moment, and will always shut up when it’s convenient on the moment. Trifles like integrity, behaving like a Catholic, or even saving face do not interest him. He is the perfect Teflon Jesuit, ready to hate you with a passion for criticising him, but never thinking for a moment of the coming criticism before he behaves like the ass he is. He is like the child constantly provoking the cut and then complaining when he gets scratched.
This shameless duplicity, exhibited day in and day out for everyone to see, used to blind an awful lot of people only three or four years ago, when many refused to believe that a Pope could be such a moral vacuum, and tried to create a halfway decent pope out of casual statements uttering something Catholic here and there. The game has become much more difficult now, and more and more people can see that the Emperor not only has no clothes, but he has little brains and quite the evil mind, too.
And no, you don’t need to be very intelligent in order to be very evil. Stupidity is quite sufficient for the purpose.
Pray for the poor Irish babies.
Not even the Pope, nowadays, defends them.
It will take some time, but it can be done. However, it will require such amount of arrogance and impiousness that I doubt any of my readers would be able to even imagine such a plan.
First, you need to emasculate the priesthood. Make hell a thing of the past, duty and courage old-fashioned habits. Your priests must be peace and love betaboys unwilling to displease anyone, much less accept conflict. The ridicule they will attract will deter many a manly young man from even seeking the priesthood. If any still do, disqualify them as psychologically unfit and keep them out. If many do, repeat hundreds of thousands of times. At some point they will get it.
The new pansy priest will, naturally, attract the fairies. Slowly, they will become more and more, and they will start coopting each other in the seminaries; with the pansies seeing everything but, being pansies, doing nothing.
In time, you will have a huge “paedophile priest scandal” in your hands, as a number of the fairies will either assault pre-puberty boys or sleep with homo boys (statutory rape, and who cares that Tyrone was a 17 1/2, 180 pounds, very horny homo: for the law it is still “child abuse”). This will cause more damage as the priest is now seen as a triple threat: weak, pervert, and dangerous.
After a couple of decades of this multiple attack, the numbers will really start to dwindle and the average age to rise. At this point it will be very useful to have an extremely arrogant, completely shameless and unimpeachably godless heathen as a Pope. He will, as he always does, insult his very own as a bunch of old people, and who cares that he is not a spring chicken himself.
After the humiliation and the insults, and thanks to the help of said godless Pope, it will be the right time to start a new demolition phase: a massive influx of married priests. This will ensure even more decadence as the married pansies now hired will fear their masculine wives way more than a God in Whom they never believed, causing even more disgust among the terrified pewsitter; who then will, in great number, decide that it can’t be a sin to avoid going to a Mass presided by Mr Cuck Francisidiot, basically a bad replica of an Anglican SJW, and to pray at home waiting for sanity to show up again. They will, in fact, sit out the worst phase: the one with Pope Georgina, another Jesuit; the one famous for canonising Liberace, Elton John, and Judas.
The plan will succeed. To a point. Sadly for them, what the godless pansies and fairies don’t know is that the Church is Indefectible, and will survive all of them; triumphing in his heavenly and earthly glory when they are all rotting in hell, and considering the worst of the V II disease a horrible, horrible trial like the Arian heresy, and certainly a worse one, but one out of which the Church emerged triumphant in the end ; and vowing to never forget that the unprecedented crisis was the deserved fruit of unprecedented rebellion.
Still, one must say that the demolition of the priesthood is marching on with great energy and the enemy of the Church will continue to ravage it.
At least, as much as they can.
No worries, Canon 915 has not been changed…
Every single time Francis does something atrocious, there is the one or other theologian explaining to us that Francis has not proclaimed a new dogma, or abolished Canon 915, or the like.
Yeah, well, interesting as an intellectual curiosity. Still, I think that the approach is totally wrong, and that we must stop circling around the real problem. If there is a hurricane going on, I am not really interested in the way the ozone layer reacts to it, nor am I reassured by the newly imparted knowledge. There is a hurricane going on, this is what counts.
Canon 915 is not just another canon. It reflects perennial teaching of the Church. Therefore, the prohibition of Canon 915 cannot be changed, sabotaged, or otherwise circumvented by anyone, and be him the Pope.
Every article reassuring you that Canon 915 has not…

President (Thank, God!!) Trump’s remarks about the animals of MS-13 have prompted the usual scandal from the bleeding hearts of the left. From the many who ran to accuse Trump of calling all illegals “animals” (usual fake news) to, predictably, Father James “Georgina” Martin getting, ahem, all hot and bothered at Trump’s testosterone and making comparisons with Hitler, there was no scarcity of hypocrite virtue-signalling and fake righteous outrage.
It used to work, you know. There was a time where the Rottweilers (see what I am doing here?) of the left only had to bark, and the emasculated “conservatives” would fall in line very fast, apologising to everyone and his cat for any offence that might have been taken, or imagined, or dreamed of.
Those times have gone.
The White House in the Age Of Trump doubles down on the statement, outs the leftists for the bunch of screeching bitches they are, and proceeds to not only take solid ground, but go on the counterattack on this. I sincerely hope that the hysteric defence of extremely brutal criminals from the left will become one of the themes of the coming electoral campaign. Trump truly is the guy who could do it.
But let us talk about animals more in general.
Calling cruel, evil, or simply very dumb people “animals” is so common that the usage is everywhere. Pope Francis himself referred (seek the link for yourself) to priests who deny baptism to the children of single mothers in that way. It is really, really common.
The Bible does the same, and it is the Word of God. Go to Gateway pundit or any other interactive bible with a search function and you will see the usage recurring in a variety of contexts in both the Old and the New Testament. Our Lord himself, when talking of casting pearls before swine, is obviously referring to humans, and in this sense has the phrase been used ever since.
Even more in general, the comparison does not even have to be offensive. Our Lord is the Lamb of God. Is there any homosexualist priest who finds this offensive?
But let us enter an even wider field, and let us put the matter in its proper context.
An animal, in the strict sense of the word (that is: not a human) cannot sin. A human is capable of great evil. What does this tell us?
Pope Francis is worse than any animal. It is likely that it would have been better for him to be born a physical jackass, than a figurative one.
The Evil Clown is about to appoint another dozen or so Cardinals with voting rights. This prompt me to some very sad considerations.
The crisis of the Church is not primarily a crisis of heresy. If is a crisis of mediocrity, conformism and tepid or, rather, lost faith.
Cardinal Burke has been wetting his lips for now 18 and more months about a possible correction. In the meantime, Francis has appointed – including the next batch at the end of June – some twenty or more Cardinals. This, mind, not during his Pontificate. Merely since the time Burke and his band of pathetic kitten recognised Bergoglio as a clear and present danger for the Church, even with the rather lax standards of V II prelates.
You could say that Bergoglio is trying to demolish everything Catholic, and you would be right. But the worst is to see that everyone is too nice, and too attached to their splendid palaces, to do anything about it.
Meanwhile, mainstream milquetoast Catholics think that Burke is a brave guy for muttering some words of dissatisfaction here and there, or for even playing paper tiger when he has a compliant audience. But this started around twenty FrancisCardinals ago, when the situation was much better than it will be at the end of June. Whilst Cowardinals shut up or posture, Rome sinks in a lake of Bergoglian heresy and socialism.
I am not a Quietist, and I therefore refuse to just sit back and think that the Holeeee Spiiirit will take care of it just like that. God works through men, and it is not enough to just sit back and do nothing.
We aren’t Cardinals or Bishops. But what we can do as simple faithful – within our family and circle of friends; as commenters or bloggers, or as tweeters, and so on – we should do. The time is coming when Bergoglian positions will be mainstream even within the college of Cardinals. The only way to counter this disaster is to react as simple faithful; not allowing the Burkes of the world to think that what they are doing is less than dereliction of duty and utter silent betrayal, and relentlessly fighting against the ¡Hagan lío! troops. Be vocal. Pray more. Introduce fast in your life. Do penance for yourself and for them. But be vocal, lest more people are confused.
The silence, or pathetic meowing, of the Cowardinals creates more bad Cardinals: the smoke of Bergoglio has entered the Church from the front door, whilst the kitten were meowing for the joy of the Pollyannas. Only God can, at this point, put an end to this. But when it happens it will be through the actions of men, not sending angels down from heaven.
We are being betrayed by the paper tigers no less than by the Evil Clown and his minions. The enablers are also accomplices. May they repent for their betrayal.
Pope Marcellin(i)us was famously asked to sacrifice to Pagan gods or die, and decided for the former. He was accused of blatant violation of the First Commandment, and his own bishops put him on trial, famously asking him to “judge thyself “.
To my knowledge, no one went to analyse the subtle dealings of the man. No one looked for expressions of irony as he was making his sacrifice, and then said “good old Marcellinus! As always, in his very intelligent and sophisticated way he let us know how much he disapproves of pagan gods “. Similarly, no one said “Marcellinus had to do it. He was held prisoner!” This even if, in fact, his accusers knew for a fact, and not out of their fantasies that in case of refusal Marcellinus would have been executed alright. Moreover, there were no strange theories alleging that Marcellinus sacrificed to Pagan gods

Decidedly, royal princesses are not what they used to be.
Forget the Cinderella story. This one here has been around the block a couple of times, has already gone through a divorce and, being a TV star of some notoriety (the fact I can’t remember her Christian name even today is of no relevance), is most certainly not the retiring wallflower. She will eat the poor dum-dum alive; but then again it’s the bed he made.
This here seems to me not much a royal marriage as the prequel to a royal divorce. I might be wrong of course, but the ingredients are there. In fact, you might say that the impact between the still very rigid, formal environment of the Royals and the emancipated ways of the American TV star would be, in themselves, stuff for a TV show. But what, in the end, grates me the most of all this is the total decay of the very concept of marriage it exhibits, with Harry allowed to do what cost the crown to Edward VIII and not even one passing remark about what the Country used to be when it still had some fear of the Lord . Because you see: even in Protestant England, at that time marriage was more than a TV show.
Now we will have the populace enjoy this counterfeit of religion in Series One, and then enjoy again all the dirt when the divorce comes, in Series Two. Actually it is fair to say this: that if this had been a royal so-called same sex marriage, the novelty factor would have caused more interest instead of huge scandal.
Cyclists, motorcyclists and sports car fans out there: enjoy the free roads!
It should not be said this marriage was good for nothing.
Let us reflect for a moment on what is happening on the Ecumenical Sacrilege FrancisChurch is concocting.
The situation in which a Pope is openly implying that he will side with heresy if the group of heretics is compact enough would, in any other age, have caused a huge uproar all over Christendom. If the Church had a modicum of decency left, we would see countless bishops and entire bishops’ conferences – from Poland to Argentina, and from Sri Lanka to Uganda – demanding that the Pope cease and desist, or be dealt with as the Church deals with heretics.
I have no doubt that some meowing is taking place behind the scene. However, it is difficult to think that it will be more than that: meowing. Francis has already demonstrated on several occasion – from the second Synod to Amoris Laetitia, and from his treatment of the FFI to his dealing with paedophile scandal – that he not only does not care for politely expressed reservations, but despises and mocks those who express them.
A bully on one side, an army of eunuchs (in the best of cases) on the other. This is why we are in the situation in which we find ourselves here. This is why Francis can not even think of, but publicly state that he will consider supporting sacrilege. The faithful are being failed just as much by cowardly clergy as by an obviously heretical Pope.
One day Francis will die; and on that day, many a Cowardinal and bishop will discover in himself a heroism never imagined before, and never seen in action when the time was ripe. Plus, we will have the army of lukewarm idiots happy with Cowardinals who never did anything more than posturing, and absolving their clergy from any sin because they coughed when Francis was proclaiming heresy. And I do not know whom to despise more: Francis with his open work of demolition or those bishops and Cardinals – almost all of them, in fact – who are happy to wait that he dies and do pretty much nothing (or: nothing plus some Dubia, or a letter, or an interview here or there) to stop this man and his German minions in their track.
This crisis is the fruit of systemic failure in the selection of bishops and cardinals; a failure that has been going on for more than 50 years now and which had to bring to the present situation, because tampering with truth is like throwing oneself from a cliff: it can’t stop half way.
Whenever we think of how bad Francis is, we must reflect on how satanic Vatican II was. Unless this sinks in there will be no chance of the situation ever improving in a serious way, then you can’t cure the disease without a proper, accurate diagnosis.
The German President, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, has dared to go public calling for the Church to allow sacrilege.
Truly, we live in astonishing times. A head of state calls for the Church he does not belong to to allow sacrilege. What is wrong with these people?
Would Herr Steinmeier call for Muslims to eat pork? Would he dare to tell Jews to eat bloody meat? How dare he, a Protestant, to open his mouth in matters of which he clearly understands nothing?
This is an unprecedented scandal; made worse still by the sad track record the Germans have in matter of religious persecution.
Mr Steinmeier should be forced to resign by a compact wall of Catholic outrage. The fact that he probably even orchestrated this shame with Cardinal Marx really tells you what is happening in Germany.
We truly live in an age of utter insanity; an insanity aided and abetted by our very own clergy.
If we lived in sane times, the astonishing mass defection and sacrilege of the German bishops would never take place. We do not live in sane times, and we are therefore witnessing the spectacle of a Pope saying to his bishops of one Country “I will support your sacrilege and heresy if you are unanimous in your decision to be heretical and sacrilegious”. It beggars belief.
What we might be about to witness is a situation where the “dissenting” German bishops agree to the sacrilege and heresy in situation which they think they can still sell – to the dumb and the reprobate – as exceptional circumstances prior to conversion , whilst all the others will immediately proclaim the new rule as “communion by conscience”. And already writing this gives the scale of the insanity.
The situation is, as we all know, very similar to the Dutch Schism. However, Paul VI never implied – weak as he was – that he would endorse the Dutch Schism if the Dutch bishops all agree to it. Therefore, the Dutch Schism remained a situation of centrifugal forces not countered from Rome, rather than aided and abetted by it.
If this happens, we will have another first in the history of the Church: Rome siding with Schismatics. The mind boggles. This would be more than a nuclear scenario, as the atomic mushroom of open confrontation and conflagration of the Pope declared Schismatic and deposed would still be infinitely better than a situation in which the Pope is in schism with 2000 years of Catholicism, and nothing happens.
If this happens – and it might happen very soon – we must come to terms with what this means for us; particularly if, as it is most probably the case, no national churches will be found willing to declare the German Church in heresy, much less the Pope a heretic. Count here on the usual sofisms, meant to persuade the DumDums that “nothing has changed”.
I will, in this scenario, adopt what I think is the most rational position, that is:
1. Shout from the roofs that Francis is a heretic and should be deposed.
2. Recognise that, as long as this is not the case, the Pope is still Pope. Unworthily, but factually. A mad dog is still a dog until he is put down. A mad Pope is still Pope until he is deposed or deceased. A Pope in schism – an apparently absurd, but perfectly feasible situation – would still be such until he dies or he is deposed; then not a single Pope decides who is in schism according to whim, but the history and tradition of the Church; in such a way, that a Pope can put himself in contrast with all his predecessors, and still be the successor of all of them. Once again: a heretical Pope is, until deposed, still Pope. And those who refuse obedience to him do so not because he is not Pope, but because he is a heretical one!
The “first unofficial rule” of the Italian Army is: Gli ordini sbagliati non si eseguono (“wrong orders are not carried out”). But they are still orders! The saying is, wisely, that they are not carried out; not that, as they are wrong, they do not exist!
3. I will only agree that the See is vacant if the SSPX proclaims the fact. I consider it improbabile. They will rather, in case, proclaim the necessity for the Cardinals to restore the dignity of the Church. Failing which, we will have a heretical Pope, and the Lord will show us, in His own time, the way how things can be restored.
We might be about to face the Apocalypse, and I ask you from right now to not put your faith in a handful of gregarious, corrupt, weak German bishops and Cardinals. It is unlikely that they care for the Apocalypse, or believe in God in the first place. If they find it more convenient for them to give up and agree with the “majority”, they will do just that.
If the Apocalypse comes, it will find us more Catholics than ever, calmly observing the reality around us, understanding the roots of it, praying that it goes away soon, and confident that Providence will adjust everything in its own time. But even in this scenario it will not be for us to decide who is Pope and who isn’t. We will leave thus decision to Catholic organisations more qualified than us, because we aren’t the ones who can decide who is the Commander in Chief.
But his orders, we will refuse to carry out anyway.
So, shall we just avoid the controversies surrounding Pope Francis and limit ourselves to praying the rosary and writing about edifying material? If you have followed this blog even only a couple of days, you know my answer.
There is an awful lot of material, online and in books, for those who want to deepen their knowledge of traditional Catholicism. This blog, and many others, have plenty of information on the matter for the one who is willing to search. Thank God, the Internet has put this information within the reach of pretty much everyone in the English speaking world.
Blogging is, however, a more immediate form of communication than a book; and it therefore allows a faster reaction when things go wrong. A war is raging, and Satan is clearly very influent in the Vatican. I for myself am not going to spend the time I have for blogging in further explanations about the Works of Mercy or the meaning of the word “charity”. Plenty of resources for that; actually even on this blog, but pretty much everywhere.
No, this is not the time to retreat to a kind of devotional blogging, or spiritual blogging retreat. This is the time to follow St Michael. The reduction of Catholic blogging to online Catholic fare without reference to the war that is raging is tantamount to giving Francis all the liberty he wants, and to wreck everything he wants, safe in the knowledge that Catholic bloggers will focus on the Joyous Mysteries, or on pious toughts on the day of the Ascension.
Let those who think their role is to explain the Catechism to readers do so at the best of their ability. There are many Catholic bloggers out there and everyone can useful in his own way. But without me, and thank you very much.
In times of war you need, first of all, warriors. Cooks may be useful, byt they don’t win wars. The Crusaders never stopped thinking whether it would have been better to stop the war and start spiritual exercises instead. They knew it was the time for war, and they acted accordingly.
Pray your rosary, my dear reader.
And then go on the Internet and blog, comment, retweet, “like”, do all you can to help in the war that is raging.
There is a time for peace and a time for war. In the times of Francis, we need to soldier on on the side of St Michael.
It seems absurd, and it isn’t.
The pattern is always the same. Vocal minorities claim persecution. Then legislation is enacted to “protect” them in some way. Then it becomes deeply offensive to go against the new PC mantra. Then it must be a criminal offence to do so.
The problem with the UK is the extreme, if you allow me the word, “dumbification” of the Country after sixty years of decaying religious feeling and BBC-fueled PC shallowness. Millions are just unable to see when their liberties are infringed upon, because their Facebook pages are too full of sugary platitudes to allow them to start using their brains.
The double standard is also already built in. You don’t get any prizes for supposing that Muslims will go largely unscathed, Catholics will be prime targets if not tomorrow, the day after tomorrow.
The premise is stupid already. Different religions ar eintriniscally incompatible with each other, which is why they are different in the first place. Therefor,e any proclamation of the truths – real or supposed – of one religion must be offensive to another one.
“God has no son”, blaspheme the Muslims. Shall it be six years, then?
Oh, and I forgot.
You know that in the end religion might simply be a convenient excuse, don’t you?
The real aim of these guidelines is the critics of “trangenders”; that is, those peopl emad enough to believe that they are not who they are, and who in more charitable times were protected from themselves by putting them in suitable mental institutions. Not anymore, of course, and the staggering suicide rate shows all the cruelty of “tolerance”.
Mind, the Country has more resources than this, and will react at some point. But this kind of attacks has been going on for more than ten years now, and it is time for the Conservative to become Conservative again and start thinking straight. Because if they don’t, the British people might at some point wake up in other ways. At that point it might get ugly; because, whilst sadly “dumbified”, this is still a fairly tough nation, very difficult to indoctrinate for very long with the easiness with which you can brainwash the Germans.
What happened at the Met Gala at the beginning of the week is an alarming signal of how badly things have decayed within the Church.
- The fact that Cardinal Ravasi & Co. did not hesitate to lend Catholic articles for a mini-exhibit shows, even assuming their orthodoxy, the stupidity of these people. The gala was, and is supposed to be, a show of everything that is wrong and stupid in the modern world. It’s a “fashion show” for scandalous “celebrities”, you cretins! What did you expect? What is next, the exhibition of Catholic memorabilia at a “gay parade”? These people really do not know anymore what Catholicism is!
- The presence of the likes of Cardinal Dolan at the event shows, once again, the desire of these people to mix with and be seen by the wrong crowd, and I mean the wrongest possible crowd. Only a Pollyanna on steroids could think that they were there to convert. They were there to be converted. Actually, they were there to show that they already are.
- The event also saw, unsurprisingly, the presence of Father Martin, aka “Georgina”. How are Cardinals like Dolan and Ravasi not able to keep undesirables out of an event they are helping to succeed with such a massive favour as an entire exhibition? Answer: because they are just not interested in doing it. Actually, they revel in the idea that the heathens they worship will see them as “open minded” and “tolerant”.
- Neither Dolan nor Ravasi can claim that they actually did not know that the gala would become a mockery of Catholicism, reduced to object of fun or outright mockery for rich atheists and curvy bimbos. They actually had to know, because they frequent those people often enough. The brutal truth is that they are so desensitized to everything Catholic that they possibly even found it fun. Cardinal Dolan, whose sheer lack of intelligence and decency antennae is quite alarming at this point, keeps trying to crack jokes about it.
- The entire spectacle was so shameless, that even Piers Morgan was scandalised. (Caution: Link to Daily Mail!). And Dolan keeps trying to be funny!? Really, how bad have things become?
It is time for us bloggers, and for journalists, and for commenters to start saying loud and clear that people like Dolan and Ravasi have no business wearing a thabit at all, much less the Red Hat. They should not be allowed to be I do not say Cardinals or Bishops, but priests in the local parish; because they are so totally sold to the world that it is unjust to inflict them on any community of Catholics.
When Piers Morgan must teach you the basics of Catholic decency, you know it’s time to apply at McDonald’s and finally give a contribution to society.
Eric Schneiderman was the Attorney General for the once great state on New York. His position basically put him on a huge political trampoline, with only the sky as the limit.
The man was also a vocal feminist, tweeting like a histerical Hollywood actress about the #metoo thingy.
This particular example of Aggressive Libtard has fallen very, very hard today as allegation of massively abusive, violent behaviour have been published, no less, on the chic-Libtard New Yorker; which, by the way, tells you they must have seen the accusations as very credible, as Libtards tend to ptotect their very own.
This isn’t Rhett Butler asserting his marital rights; not even some twisted version of “Fifty Shades of Libtard”. If the allegations are true, this is a vicious level of violence. Forget Rhett Butler, think American Psycho: The Prequel instead. Such are the people Libtard put in power, and propel towards the highest echelons of American politics.
Schneiderman was Attorney General. If the allegations prove truthful, there can be no doubt he derived an additional, twisted pleasure from abusing his power, like a real-life version of the main character in the movie Indagine su un Cittadino sopra ogni sospetto.
A twisted, sick individual in both cases. But the Libtard one very real.
Well, how should I put it.
#YouToo, damn cretin.
Many people in Italy know the story of the 1268-1271 Conclave in Viterbo. The Cardinals were unable to reach an agreement, with very hardened fronts. The populace became increasingly frustrated with this and recurred to various measures to “persuade” the Cardinals to make a decision. First, they locked the Cardinals inside the palace (some say this was the first Conclave); then, they reduced their food rations. When not even this worked, they proceeded to take away the roof of the building, leaving the Cardinals literally in the cold.
Promptly, a new Pope was elected.
There is no denying that, by every present and former standard, undue pressure was exercised on the Cardinals, a pressure threatening, at the end, their very lives.
It is, to my knowledge, not known that anyone asked for the Conclave to be considered invalid (which was always a possibility, even before JP II’s rule – the Western Schism was originated exactly by such a claim!) and, as a result, for every conclave after that to be illegitimate.
This was, also, only an episode. If you know a bit of Church History you know that during its course there were such long periods of such sustained corruption that it is improbable that episodes of bribery and intimidation were, if more discreet than in Viterbo, not uncommon.
Why I say to you all this ? Because it seems to me that Bishop Gracida’s suggestion, that the Cardinal should call the election of Francis invalid following procedural matters, is very dangerous if very well-intentioned.
It would end up in what Italians call ” a trial to intentions”, with anectodical evidence and the stupid, vainglorious bragging of the one or the other used to undermine a Papal election.
Ask yourself this: if the Pope coming out of the Conclave had been Plus XIII, and a stupid Cardinal or three were to brag about the intelligence and efficacy of their own lobbying efforts, would you now ask that the Cardinals call the election illegitimate?
What, then, about the future? Shall every future Pope have to live under such threat unless and until the rules are changed?
It seems to me that the problem here is not the election, but the Pontificate. The remedy for this is simple: the Pope is forced to uphold orthodoxy or he is deposed as a heretic.
This was what was originally planned, but the Cowardinals – led by Cowardinal In Chief, Burke – then discovered the cojones for this were just not available. Still, this is and remains the main way, bar an Imperfect Council which would be extremely expensive and difficult to organise, and which, if such support among Bishops is present, would certainly gather the support of enough Cardinals to go the shorter way and make the process credible.
The Cowardinals need to grow a pair, and this should be the beginning and the end of any discussion about Francis. Procedural fantasies that endanger the credibility of every future papal election are, in my eyes, not helpful.
Let me tell you this: the pronouncement of the German church about allowing communion to protestant is going to come. I know how gregarious the Germans are, and how they always end up supporting what the majority has decided. It’s the new post-Adolf religion, and no one questions it.
This is why Francis is now asking for a unanimous decision about this sacrilege. He has clearly already been told how things will end.
I do not know what other proof people need to persuade themselves that vast parts of (soon, very probably all of) the Church in Germany have become official enemies of Christ.
When you have a Cardinal opposing the Crucifix in public buildings and promoting sacrilege, what is more to understand? When you have bishops who are such cowards, and so greedy, that they acquiesce to the request of institutionalised sacrilege for the sake of the Kirchensteuer, how can you keep seeing these people as worthy representatives of the Church they are called to defend?
Seriously: if, absurdly, a Muslim were to be appointed Cardinal in Munich, would he have the same openly anti-Catholic positions as cardinal Marx?
I am calling all German Catholics who read this blog to officially leave the Kirchensteuer-system, and tell their local priest why.
The Kirchensteuer is the main reason for all this sacrilege and enmity with God. It must end if we want to see some improvement.
The Rosary Reblog
May is the Month of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
What better occasion than to make a resolution to start to pray the Rosary every day, than the month of May!
Among the heavenly investments I have mentioned in a past blog post, the Rosary is – after Mass attendance, of course – very probably the best. Padre Pio and countless other saints insisted on the Rosary. Praying the Rosary devoutly every day is a beautiful sign of predestination. I cannot imagine a better way to enrich your prayer life – nay, your life – than to pray the Rosary.
When I die, I want my last rosary to be not older than the day before. And I can die every day. Therefore…
If you should read this blog for years and take from it the habit of praying…

The Italian magazine La Nuova Bussola Quotidiana reports that Alfie was, possibly, poisoned to avoid the persistence of the inconvenient situation in which a child ordered to die refuses to obey orders. I wasn’t there, but I know La Nuova Bussola Quotidiana as a very honest Catholic voice. Church Militant reports in English.
Normally, I avoid conspiracy theories. But this does not seem a conspiracy to me, or a theory. It seems fully in line with the mentality pervading the British so-called “health” system.
I hope that there will be a full investigation on this, and I actually hope that the Italian Justice will also start its own investigation as little Alfie died an Italian citizen.
The author of the article sums it up well:
This is what Alfie’s martyrdom did, as well as converting many hearts: It forced us to unite against a monster, to look at the brutality of a eugenics system disguised as democracy. A system with unlimited power over the person and considered a civil religion by English politics and justice. A power that crushes so many other fragile lives and spreads a utilitarian mentality that one must begin to fight if one does not want to do the same end.
One day, Theresa May may well be “euthanased”.
Unfortunately, she isn’t smart enough to understand it.
I have written several times that Pope Francis is dumb. I mean, really stupid. His recent tweet about “banning all weapons” is the latest example of what happens when you make a stupid man Pope.
The man feels unsafe because there are weapons. The idea that he might feel unsafe because there are unsafe people around does not occur to him. No, it is weapons who, magically, cause the problem.
The irony of this is that this extremely dumb tweet, stupid at any time, looks, if possible, even dumber after the announcement of North Korea’s nuclear disarmament, an event clearly made possible by the massive threat of massive use of a massive, massive, massive amount of weapons.
But really, this is dumb on so many level a kindergarten child sees the stupidity of it. How is the man, or the U.N., or anyone else, react to the fact that some people have arms? Will they send tweets reminding North Korea of how unsure weapons make them?
This man is stupid. And I mean, embarrassingly stupid.
A great grace God has given us in
the middle of our deserved punishment for the rebellion of Vatican II.
