If you want evidence that Cardinals are not what they used to be, look at the photo above and the linked article from the Eponymous Flower, and reflect on the following:
- Cardinals used not to use the vulgar gesture the Cardinal uses in the photo; and yes, in Germany everyone understands the meaning. It is also very difficult to think that the Cardinal might have done it “by mistake”. Look at how his second finger is carefully held by his thumb.
- Cardinals used to know what they were talking about. A man so confused that he is able to state, in front of journalists, that he “thinks” that “unanimity prevailed” should take the habit of thinking twice before he speaks. It’s not so difficult to see whether a vote was unanimous or not. Plus, it is clearly a lie that it was.
- Cardinals used to be Catholic. This one here clearly isn’t. Beside the other lie (that AL would be in sync with the two Synods) it is just plain Protestant to say that if a document clearly states something at variance with what the Church has always believed, it is fine for any Catholic to believe the lie.
Cardinals are not as they used to be.
This one is, for sure, much nearer to Friedrich Engels than Jesus Christ.
Obeying all the commandments, all of them…’ Yes, it’s true, but this paralyzes you too, it makes you forget so many graces received, it takes away memory, it takes away hope, because it doesn’t allow you to go forward.
No, this is not “fake news”.
This is the possibly drunken, possibly drugged, but also very possibly possessed Evil Clown, reported verbatim using Vatican Radio as a source.
Seriously, people, I am fed up with this. Normally you shouldn’t question the profession of a Pope’s mother, but this is not a normal Pope, and I can’t avoid wondering how probable it is that the Lord would allow such a scourge to be born out of saintly, or even halfway good parents.
This is becoming so obvious, so embarrassing even for wannabe Catholics, so openly evil, that I don’t think there is an insult this man hasn’t merited.
This man worship sins. He must be so filthy inside that he cannot avoid proclaiming his perverted beliefs. His rambling, drunken rants go here and there without a sure purpose, until they land where the man always has them landing: countless variations of the leitmotiv of how sweet sin is, how useful being sinful is, how being a sinner makes you a better Christian, and all that rubbish he always seems to be revolving around.
Make no mistake, this is a serious hijo de puta. No, I mean a serious one. And it is really the time that we start crying it from every nook and cranny of the blogosphere, lest the simple and the idiots (who are many) may not be deceived by this bastard, or may be deceived only when they have made the conscious decision to do so.
This man should be targeted with foul tomatoes every time he dares to put his filthy mug out in St Peter’s square. He should be the daily object of derision, insult and mockery. He should be taken away from the sight of children. We are not even at Luther level here. We are slowly verging toward open Satanism, as this thinly veiled adoration of sinfulness clearly seems to indicate.
Francis’ words show once again to every thinking Catholic some elementary facts.
The first is that the offence to God caused by Vatican II is so great, that a devastating punishment is now being inflicted on all of us.
The second is that the Catholic feeling is now so dimmed, reduced to such a thin varnish under the omnipresent, all-powerful religion of niceness, that such words from a Pope cause nothing but polite disagreement and soft critical remarks (let me say it once again: this is one figlio di puttana. There. This is Catholicism for you. Extreme times require extreme measures).
The third is that the Lord is doing us, even as he punishes us as we have richly deserved, the great grace of putting us in front of such an obviously evil creature, that everyone who still has a shred of Catholicism in himself can see very clearly, through the white habit, the black soul of this deeply evil man. I think often with great horror what bigger punishment, and bigger danger, a more subtly evil Pope would have been. This idiot here wouldn’t cheat a well-instructed seven years old. This is a great grace.
Always remember: the battle is won already. Our Lady has already crushed Satan’s head. The final victory is ours already now, Francis or no Francis. But this does not mean we are justified in not fighting the battle, however assured the outcome. Join the fight, and spread among your fellow Catholics the news of an unhinged, satanical, utterly evil Pope who must be kept away from the sight of children.
Please, Lord, make him die. Make him die soon. Make him die before the utter devastation he is inflicting to the body of your Church is so bad that it needs decades and decades to be healed. Lead him – even him! – to heaven, allowing him the grace of final repentance, if this is Your will.
But in Your Mercy, please free us from this unhinged, utterly evil, satanical man.
Every day that God sends on Earth I am afraid of looking on Canon212 , fearing very much that Francis has made himself heard with another heretical, blasphemous, perverted, communist, or otherwise stupid initiative and/or statement. I am sure millions share my feelings, though only a tiny part of them visits the Catholic blogosphere regularly.
Like many of my readers, I ma of the opinion that whilst the absolute number of Catholics who read Catholic blogs is relatively small, the influence they have is huge.
Let us imagine that you are the usual Catholic; one, that is, with a thin varnish or Catholicism covered by a thick layer of ignorance, with on top of that the cherry of lazy disposition (the usual Catholic is generally Catholic enough to know, or at least sense, that if he were to deepen his knowledge of Catholicism some uncomfortable truths would be unearthed, which now lay comfortably hidden beneath the thick strata of ignorance). As you hear, here and there, about Francis’ “novelties” and “refreshing approach” to all matters Catholic you are curious, or vaguely disturbed, or outright uncomfortable, and go browsing on the Internet to know what is what. That’s where you find… us, the countless bloggers and commenters.
Suddenly you, usual Catholic of the garden variety (thin layer of doctrine buried under thick layer of ignorance) have no doubt anymore about what is what. A Pope despised and considered heretic by faithful, well- educated, well-instructed Catholics is what.
You may, being one of the garden variety, not really deepen the matter (see above: “uncomfortable truths”, of which you have already read enough in one internet seating to last you a long time). However, one thing you know: Francis is as much Catholic as Tony Blair is Labour. Yes, literally and legally a member of the group and (at the one or other time) its head; but certainly one who does not represent the grassroots and, in general, the very group he belongs to. Now, Garden Variety Catholic may dismiss the Labour grassroots without any trouble; but he has enough sensus catholicus to know that when countless faithful Catholics throw stones at the Pope, the face is irretrievably gone.
Francis, a man whose mother’s profession is more and more mysterious to me, senses this very well. Whilst certainly not a genius, he has enough brain to understand that this pesky Catholics are ruining his party. Instead of Johnny going away at the same time as Judy, he sees the Catholic public opinion (the serious one; the people the other listen to in order to decide what is what) has gone away with the faithful bloggers, and the only thing he can do is motivate a record number of Catholics to vote for Trump whilst even the effeminate Europe slowly but surely rejects – and despises – his socialist, globalist, anti-Catholic propaganda.
We are, literally, ruining his party, and even if Monsignor Ricca dances with him (which he might well do) he has no reason to smile; which is why he becomes more and more bitter, obnoxious, boorish, and outright despicable by the month. The dream of the historic papacy is gone. What remains now is a wrecking ball papacy, out of spite, arrogance, boorishness and utter and complete evil.
In the presence of astonishing cowardly bishops it is clear that Francis will not be challenged during his disgraceful papacy. He will go on wreaking havoc inside the Church like a Castro on steroids; but we will, at least, ruin his party, and deny to him credibility and dignity both in life and in history.
And as we are no cowardly “Knights” of Malta, or pussycat bishops, there is absolutely nothing he can do about it.
O Lord God, to whom vengeance belongeth; O God, to whom vengeance belongeth, shew thyself.
2 Lift up thyself, thou judge of the earth: render a reward to the proud.
3 Lord, how long shall the wicked, how long shall the wicked triumph?
4 How long shall they utter and speak hard things? and all the workers of iniquity boast themselves?
5 They break in pieces thy people, O Lord, and afflict thine heritage.
6 They slay the widow and the stranger, and murder the fatherless.
7 Yet they say, The Lord shall not see, neither shall the God of Jacob regard it.
8 Understand, ye brutish among the people: and ye fools, when will ye be wise?
9 He that planted the ear, shall he not hear? he that formed the eye, shall he not see?
10 He that chastiseth the heathen, shall not he correct? he that teacheth man knowledge, shall not he know?
11 The Lord knoweth the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.
12 Blessed is the man whom thou chastenest, O Lord, and teachest him out of thy law;
13 That thou mayest give him rest from the days of adversity, until the pit be digged for the wicked.
14 For the Lord will not cast off his people, neither will he forsake his inheritance.
15 But judgment shall return unto righteousness: and all the upright in heart shall follow it.
16 Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?
17 Unless the Lord had been my help, my soul had almost dwelt in silence.
18 When I said, My foot slippeth; thy mercy, O Lord, held me up.
19 In the multitude of my thoughts within me thy comforts delight my soul.
20 Shall the throne of iniquity have fellowship with thee, which frameth mischief by a law?
21 They gather themselves together against the soul of the righteous, and condemn the innocent blood.
22 But the Lord is my defence; and my God is the rock of my refuge.
23 And he shall bring upon them their own iniquity, and shall cut them off in their own wickedness; yea, the Lord our God shall cut them off.
This Psalm is all I could think after knowing, today, of the shameful capitulation of the Knights of Malta, and their decision to bend over to the bullying of Francis.
Francis’ bullying makes me angry, for sure. But even more so the cowardice of little people, unworthy of the glorious order of which they are part, and ready to sell it (and, make no mistake, Catholic orthodoxy with it) for a comfortable life or who knows what ulterior motives.
What a shame. What use it is to be a sovereign entity, if this sovereignty isn’t used when it is most important to do so. What kind of knighthood is this, that decides to serve evil rather than good; what kind of miserable sellouts are people who first make very clear they will not be trampled (and have all the means to avoid it; if they are honest, that is) and then fold like the bad shepherd when the evil wolf, Francis, barks twice.
Shame on them. Shame on them all. In no time, the SMOM will be transformed in another fake catholic, condom-distributing, heresy-promoting organisation.
The Evil Clown does not win because of his intrinsic qualities as a bully. He wins because of the utter paucity of the people supposed to stand against him. People among which Cardinal Burke is considered a lion. And by the by, can’t wait for the man’s take on all this. We will know whether there is one who has kept his dignity.
What a shame. These peopel have not deserved any of their rich privileges. They do not deserve sovereignty. They are little lackeys of an evil man.
Traitors. Sellouts. Evil just as Francis is evil.
Don’t even try to make excuses for them. With their declarations of the past days they have themselves brought the judgment upon themselves. This is a sellout pure and simple. They have nowhere to hide.
For shame. I hope they lose their sovereignty. I hope they cease to exist. They have not deserved it.
I do not know how much time the Cardinals have informally given Francis to answer the Dubia, but it is reasonable to assume it will not be beyond Easter 2017. Unless the man does us all (and himself) a favour and dies, he will have to start thinking seriously about this at some point.
It is, in my eyes, very improbable that an open condemnation from the Cardinals will lead, in a landslide effect, to his deposition after a vast number of pussycats suddenly starts to roar. Normally, pussycats don’t roar. Francis should be very worried about his salvation, but not really worried about his job.
However, there can be no doubt at all that being the first Pope in almost 700 years officially censored by his own Cardinals would irremediably destroy this papacy, even if not one single Bishop and Cardinal besides those who have already spoken will take position on the side of Christ. Bishop Fisher’s opposition to Henry VIII was and is nothing to do with numbers, and Church history always sees past the complicity and cowardice of the day. If the Cardinals speak, Francis’ pontificate will be nuked for all eternity.
Now put yourself in the position of an atheist, heretical, Communist Pope. What do you do? Is it I do not say reasonable, but sane to willingly go into a fight he knows he has lost on day one in the judgment of history? Atheists may think that there is nothing but nothingness when they die; but they are still, generally speaking, vain enough to worry of what people will think of them when they are dust. The extremely vain Francis is not likely to be an exception.
Nor can you say that the man prefers to remembered as a Revolutionary Pope, and be fondly remembered by Castroites. Whilst nothing is impossible with this man, it would be stupid beyond words: no one remembers Honorius as a brave trailblazer, not even alternative Catholics and revolutionary SJWs. Atheists and Communists will remember Francis rather as a hypocrite than as an innovator. But they will, far more likely, ignore him altogether.
No. The only rational thing to do at this point is to, unpleasant as it is for him, swallow this big, fat, ugly frog. Loss of face will follow, but I doubt Francis is much concerned about his face in general. He will continue to insult Catholics to the last day of his life, and keep off-the-cuffing heretical excrement until he is six feet under. He will seek petty revenges and become even crankier than he already is. He will seek ever new ways to provoke and scandalise Catholics. But he will fall short of spreading his rubbish in form of new official documents again. One thing is being despised in life, another is knowing one will be the laughing stock of countless generations to come.
This, obviously, assumes that Francis isn’t a total ass, and is still able to think and act rationally rather than being an old, cranky idiot quarrelling with everyone and everything out of spite and blank hatred for humanity.
Which, in the end, is the big question.
Father Spadaro (Jesuit, obsessive Twitter-maverick, and told to be “near to the Pope”), has officially proclaimed and promoted heresy.
The quote is this one:
When the concrete circumstances of a divorced and remarried couple make feasible a pathway of faith, they can be asked to take on the challenge of living in continence. Amoris Laetitia does not ignore the difficulty of this option, and leaves open the possibility of admission to the Sacrament of Reconciliation when this option is lacking.
“In other, more complex circumstances, and when it has not been possible to obtain a declaration of nullity, this option may not be practicable. But it still may be possible to undertake a path of discernment under the guidance of a pastor, which results in a recognition that, in a particular case, there are limitations which attenuate responsibility and guilt – particularly where a person believes they would fall into a worse error, and harm the children of the new union.
This is clearly an alternative religion.
A religion in which Christ’s command “may be not practicable”. A religion in which it is always possible to define a “lesser evil” and prefer it to a “worse evil” that can be picked at pleasure. A religion in which the priest is made an accomplice (only for those, of course, who at that level of evil still decide they do need to talk to a priest) in the obdurate sin of the unfaithful.
No, this certainly isn’t Catholicism. It isn’t any form of Christianity, either. It’s the new religion of the adulterers, the communists, and the perverted.
Father Spadaro is either possessed, or perverted himself, or extremely evil. There is no way a sane Catholic with a shred of fear of the Lord remaining in him, and who certainly knows better, would ever go on record with the words above unless Satan had taken, in one way or other, complete control over him.
In Christian times, people like this one were burnt at the stake. With Catholic saints painted (centuries later) as present and presiding over the proceedings as in the painting above from Pedro Berruguete. The painting may be historically accurate, or not. I have no time or inclination to make a research. But it certainly shows how Catholic painters thought in Catholic times.
Pray for the soul of the poor bastard.
Or wait for the retractation if the protests are loud enough. This is the way these people work.
There is an achingly beautiful article from Hilary White on One Peter Five that I would suggest my reader take the time to read. It is, if you wish, a tale of redemption, the announcement that the Cavalry has finally showed up or, as the author beautifully said,
For us English, living on short rations in our bomb shelters, it is like hearing that the Americans have finally decided to join in.
The fundamental premise of the article is a handful of concepts that I repeat often: 1) Pope Francis is the unavoidable consequence of a rot that has been forming in the last fifty years. He is, if you wish, the explosion of a huge bubo that had been growing in the past half century whilst the vast majority praised the full airport masses of popes who kept appointing heretics as bishops, and kept tolerating heresy in many overt or covert ways at all level of Church life. 2) Francis has now come, as a plague allowed by the Lord to show us whereto our madness leads; to show us, in a word, that we can’t have Vatican II and orthodoxy at the same time. 3) These are great times for a faithful Catholic, because we can live and die in allegiance to Christ when all the world is against us. This is, as I have also stated, our very own “finest hour”.
However, I must disagree with the author of the linked article concerning two points: whether the war has already started, and whether the Cavalry has really showed up.
At the cost of being cynical, I must repeat that I still do not have much trust in the will of the four Cardinals to really start a conflict. If I were from Missouri, I would say “show me”. The Cardinals have pointed their cannons on Fort Sumter, but they haven’t started the cannonade yet. After months of silence from our hierarchy (including the four), I’d say I will wait until I see the smoke from the guns before I consider this war started.
In the same vein, up to now the interventions in favour of the four Cardinals have been few and far between: a couple of bishops here (I recall three in total), half a Cardinal there. Not much. If, for example, the entire Polish Bishops’ Conference were to release a hard-worded statement demanding that Francis answers the dubia, and does it in the proper way, then I would be persuaded that a strong front line is forming or, if you wish, that a Confederate Army is now operative. What I see up to now is… not much.
Then there is the big question of what happens next. I would like to share Ms White’s optimism that the dubia are the sign that things will soon improve, but I can’t get myself to think it. Decades of cowardice are not likely (bar a huge Divine intervention) to be overcome in a matter of months or in a few years. The poison of V II runs deep in the veins of the Church (actually, it runs pretty deep even in the veins of the Four Cardinals). The confrontation, if it comes, is likely going to end, at least initially, with the crushing of the opposition of Francis and the complicit silence of most of our clergy. What happens next is everyone’s bet, but when I look at our bishops I see an army of 8,000 kitten unfit to wage I do not say a war, but a loud meowing.
Then there is the matter of the apparition of Our Lady in Quito. I believe in the apparition, and am therefore braced for much, much worse than we see today. At some point, I expect Francis – or his successors – to try to “merge” Catholics and Lutherans, or declare Marxism part of the social teaching of the Church, or such like. I expect the bubo to not only explode, but to spread his pus everywhere, probably for decades. Fifty years of madness aren’t forgotten because of four not entirely sane (remember: they are part of the same madness!) Cardinals. Actually, I have a hunch that fifty years of drunken madness might well have to be paid with fifty years of excruciating pain.
But yes, it is a great time to be a Catholic. We will, possibly in the next half century, live and die believing in the faith of our Father amidst a world that ridicules and insults us.
It is a great Grace the Lord is giving us.
At some point, from somewhere, a handful of great generals and fearless heroes like General Lee and “Stonewall” Jackson will appear, and these Lees and Jacksons will lead us to victory; because whilst Lee’s and Jackson’s eventual defeat was almost inevitable, our own victory is already providentially ordained.
But I doubt that this will happen in my lifetime, and encourage my readers to prepare themselves to decades of conflict whatever happens; even if the Four Cardinals abandon us, or are left completely isolated, or are declared heretics by the Evil Clown.
As to myself, as I write this I can’t even have the consolation of at least seeing the start of the war.
In a further demonstration of how far the cancer of Modernism has spread within the highest ranks of the Church, One Peter Five reports, in an article about the Dubia, this stunning affirmation of Cardinal Lehmann.
“For that matter, what, then, is hindering us from taking married deacons – who perform a great service in the Church – and then ordaining them so that they may also take over priestly duties?”
The easy answer to this is “Church discipline and what would happen to such a bishop afterwards, you old nincompoop”. The more elaborate answer is: “why are you still allowed to wear your red habit? Nay, your priestly habit?”
A retired Cardinal inviting his colleagues to such acts of open disobedience has no business whatsoever being a priest, much less a bishop, much less a Cardinal.
And a hypocrite, too. The man never performed such an act of open disobedience when he was intent in climbing the ladders of the hierarchy, but he now wonders what prevents any of his German colleagues from being immediately suspended and, likely, kicked out altogether eventually.
This man was made a Bishop in 1983, and then a Cardinal in 2001, by John Paul the Not-So-Great. He was, by the way, at the head of the German Bishop’s conference. Goats and gardeners come to mind.
The cancer has been spreading for a long time.
This man should be invited to retract his scandalous affirmations or being defrocked. But hey, in the time of FrancisMercy this seems somewhat improbable.
The best punishment for this idiot would be to ignore him utterly and completed (notabene: it would really be burning at the stake, but he is Pope so that doesn’t count). However, for the benefit of the very ill instructed it might be good to say one thing or two about the idiocy of this man.
Francis has no idea himself – nor could he – how any “reconciliation” can be achieved that avoids conversion of Proddies to Catholicism and goes beyond the uneducated “hey, let’s ignore our difference; they are only the squabbles of theologians” he goes peddling around. Once confronted with hard facts, his only answer is to sow confusion. He is a peasant invited to speak in front of theologians, and who has nothing more to say to them than a Rodney King-style “can we all just get along?”.
No, you git. We can’t. The matter of heresy or orthodoxy strike at the very core of what we are called to be. It isn’t just something that makes for embarrassing conversions at the Thanksgiving table. Only someone who has no idea of what the Church is can consider being voluntarily out of it a matter of secondary importance.
The “joint statement” is a stunning example of complicity in heresy and, it seems to me, outright blasphemy. Mind, this is joint, so Francis has to answer for it, too.
“We experience the pain of those who share their whole lives, but cannot share God’s redeeming presence at the eucharistic table. We acknowledge our joint pastoral responsibility to respond to the spiritual thirst and hunger of our people to be one in Christ.”
What a Catholic (not Francis, of course) and a Lutheran understand under “eucharistic table” are two completely different pairs of shoes. Only a peasant bent on sowing confusion could sign a statement that simply ignores his duty to defend the Truth and Dogma of Transubstantiation and downplays it to an utterly undefined, and acceptable even for darn Lutherans, “redeeming presence”.
Then notice the utter stupidity of comparing the allegedly secondary, momentary episode of the “eucharistic table” with the “whole lives”: these two Protestant idiots obviously consider it as very “off” that once two people share their lies together, this annoying “detail” of the “eucharistic table” should remind them that one is a heretic, and the other has married a heretic.
In the end, none of the two asses had any solution that goes beyond the mere ignoring and downplaying. None had a thought going beyond the most childish platitudes. These are two peasants trying to reinvent the wheel, and lamenting the fact that the feat appears somewhat difficult to achieve.
There is only one Church and only one Truth. The only way for those who are out is to get in. No Pope, no matter how stupid, heretical, or perverted, can change a iota on that.
Congratulation, Frankie boy. You have shown the world, once again, how stupid you are.
Remember Trotsky’s theory of “Permanent Revolution”? Its nucleus was that any Country in which the Proletariat “triumphs” will be surrounded by baddy Capitalists States, and to avoid defeat the only way was to feed a Permanent Revolution continuously striving to export the revolution to them.
Francis, a man evidently stuck in Marxist ideas, now tries to do pretty much the same. His idea of “Mercy Revolution” is doomed to fail, because outside of his Marxist bubble and his circle of admirers and interested adulterers Catholic just aren’t buying it. Therefore, he must export his mercy Revolution and tell us that heaven itself is in a state of constant flux.
“What is the Kingdom of God? Well, perhaps the Kingdom of God is a very well-made structure, everything tidy, organization charts all done, everything and the person who does not enter (into this structure) is not in the Kingdom of God. No, the same thing can happen to the Kingdom of God as happens to the Law: unchanging, rigidity… the Law is about moving forward, the Kingdom of God is moving forward, it is not standing still. What’s more: the Kingdom of God is re-creating itself every day.”
Movement equals change. Change equals imperfection. Everything that grows must one day die, everything than change can’t be perfect before and after the change. Not only is this elementary logic, this is what the Church has always taught. God’s Laws can only be as immutable as God himself. God can’t “move forward”. It is absurd to say that perfection can “re-create itself” every day and be perfect. If the law moves forward, the Gospels are 2000 years behind. This is, in fact, exact what Francis believes.
This man is making of heaven a revolutionary project. Not only is this extremely arrogant and blasphemous. It is just plain stupid.
May God have mercy of such an idiot.
Frankly I wouldn’t bet my pint.
In the days approaching the Big Fat Heresy Fest, Pope Francis has thought it appropriate to let us know once again what tool of Satan he is.
LifeSiteNews reports that, speaking to a group of heretics very possibly bent for hell, he has told them that Proselitysm is “poison”. What a dastardly tool of Satan this cretin is.
This is obviously not new, and in fact it is difficult to think at this point what heresies can this man spit out of his filthy mouth that he has not spitted already. However, it is fitting for us to warn the less intelligent and very badly instructed faithful – the smart and well-instructed ones obviously need no warning – of what a tool of Satan this old, lewd man is.
O you, occasional reader who has stumbled on this site by some fortuitous circumstance, know this: the Pope sitting on the throne of Peter is a shameless heretic, a lewd enabler of trannies and other perverts, a hater of sanctity and purity, an enemy of the Church, possibly a homosexual, and certainly a man of limited intellect and boundless arrogance.
Yes, it is possible that a heretic sits on the Throne of Peter. It has happened in the past, it will happen in the future. Yes, it does not mean that Truth can change, as in fact it did not change in the time of Honorius and Liberius, of Formosus or of John XXII. Yes, it means that you – you, my dear occasional reader – have the duty to inform yourself about your faith and follow it rather than blindly follow the new religion of Francis, which would be blasphemous Papolatry without a shred of Catholicism in it.
God will free us from this scourge at the time His Mercy has appointed for it. It might well be that this punishment goes on for many decades. But you, my dear reader, you will follow the truth today, tomorrow, forever; safe in the knowledge that no one can touch what has been transmitted to us.
The only effect a heretical Pope can have is to lead with him to hell souls of whom the Lord, in His Justice, has decreed that they have merited hell anyway. Not one soul, not a single one will the dastardly heretical Pope be able to prevent from attaining Salvation, of whom the Lord has decreed that it will be saved. Francis is no thief of good souls; he is no more than a huge rubbish collection truck, meant for the unloading of a huge load of filth in Satan's eternal furnace.
I pray, and so must you, that the Lord in His Mercy will call us with the blessed, allowing us the grace of final repentance that we would never, ever be able to merit on our own. But we must collaborate with His Mercy, and in this way do His work as much as it is in our power.
There is nothing so shockingly extraordinary in the events of these years. Nothing, I mean, more extraordinary than V II was, in fact, an extraordinary act of arrogance and outright revolt. It is that extraordinary rebellion that now brings us its extraordinarily poisoned fruit. We look at 2016 in the historical perspective of the last 60 years and suddenly Francis makes a lot of sense, and becomes as logical as the indigestion after the gluttonous meal, as the big headache after the big drinking.
Stop one moment, dear reader, and reflect. We reap what we sow. It is an unchangeable, Divine law that it must be so.
Let the scale of the headache be the indication of the scale of the drunkenness.
From the Catholic Encyclopedia:
Schism (from the Greek schisma, rent, division) is, in the language of theology and canon law, the rupture of ecclesiastical union and unity, i.e. either the act by which one of the faithful severs as far as in him lies the ties which bind him to the social organization of the Church and make him a member of the mystical body of Christ, or the state of dissociation or separation which is the result of that act.
This definition coincides with what the average Pewsitter answers when he is requested to define schism: someone separates himself from the union with the Church.
Mind, here, that the definition – and the common parlance – refers schism to the Church, not to the Pope. One is not in schism purely because he separates himself from the Pope, or the Pope separates himself from him. One is in schism because he has cut himself off from the Church.
Let us, therefore, imagine Francis (he about whom nothing is unimaginable) state that those who support the death penalty have separated themselves from the body of the Church and are now officially in schism. Most certainly, every well-instructed Catholic would refuse to give obedience to the Evil Clown in such a matter. However, they would most certainly not be in any schism whatsoever. They would be as part of the Church as they always were. They would also (being Catholics) most certainly not go around creating a parallel “church” under, say, Pope Pius XIII Williamson (no, I think even he would never do that). They would never declare themselves “severed” from the Church in any way whatsoever. They would simply point out that the Pope is a heretic, and a heretical Pope will not be obeyed in everything that is heretical or going against the Church.
I also would find confusing to state, in such a circumstance, that the Pope is in schism himself. No, he clearly isn’t, because he has never declared severed the ties who bind him to the social organisation of the Church. In order to do so, he would have to resign and declare himself separated from the Church, which he will clearly never do. One might say that he has put himself in a factual state of schism (as in the case of the notorious Dutch Schism), but even in this case this factual separation would concern him, not you; and would still make of him the Pope exactly in the same way as the Dutch bishops remained bishops, continued to validly ordain priests, and were never deposed.
What Francis would be doing, and what he actually does with Fornicationis Laetitia and his many satanical statements, is “restricting belief to certain points of Christ’s doctrine selected and fashioned at pleasure, which is the way of heretics“.
Pope is heretic. Faithful remain faithful to the Church, and refuse to obey the Pope. No schism happens. Pope is deposed, or not. If Pope is not deposed, his appointments of Cardinals are valid – and therefore his successors are validly elected – until a Council decides on the matter of the orthodoxy of both his papacy and his successors. If Pope is deposed, Council decides about the validity of his acts and appointments whilst being a heretical Pope.
We, the simple Pewsitters, do not decide any of that. We cannot depose Popes. We are worried about dying in the state of Grace. To do this, it is highly advisable to do our best to help the right side. But it’s not for us to foresee when, and how, the Lord will put an end to this. It is also not for us to talk of schism, because no matter how heretical the Pope becomes, we remain and want to die in communion with the Church. Church, obviously, seen as the Bride of Christ, not the Vatican Gay Mafia, no matter how bad the latter may become.
The Church is the “society founded by Our Lord Jesus Christ”, not Francis’ Gay Sauna. It is not for Francis to declare you in or out, if he is being heretical in so doing.
You are still in. He is still a heretic. That’s it.
Once again, it seems to me this talk of “schism” derives from excessive and wrong consideration for the figure of the Pope. It is as if some people would think that if the Pope officially converted to Islam the Catholics would have to a) do the same or b) be in schism, because ubi Petrus ibi ecclesia and if the Pope is now within Islam, then so must you. Nonsense.
Francis will cause no schism. He will cause (more or less) widespread disobedience to his heresy, but he will not be able to cause any schism, or to cause obedient Catholics to declare themselves in schism, or to separate even only one of the faithful from the “society founded by Our Lord Jesus Christ”.
Pray for the painless death of the Evil Clown. Pray also for his conversion as sincerely as you can, though I think his death is by far the most probable and the only assured outcome. Pray that the Lord may soon put an end to this scourge. But never, never go around talking of schism.
Let him be a heretic.
You will remain faithful.
The Remnant reports of a DCLeaks revelation that George Soros’ OSF prepares weekly (laudatory) reports about the social and political activism of the Evil Clown.
Now, this does not mean that Francis prepares these reports, or helps them to be prepared. It does not mean that Francis himself is in Soros’ pocket, either. But what this makes clear is that the two are perfectly aligned in their own utterly diabolical Weltanschauung.
Francis has appointed himself the high priest of the religion of Soros: a satanical sect promoting everything that is evil from environmentalism to Muslim invasion to the destruction of borders.
The naive part of the Catholic world needs to wake up to the reality of a Pope working against all that the Church represents day in and day out.
They can choose to close their eyes, but they must pay attention: at some point, obstinate naivety becomes willing silence in the face of an evil that was certainly recognised, if brushed away because of convenience and cowardice.
We live in very stupid times if we think that countless adults, people who are fully functional in all other spheres of life, can systematically ignore or excuse this Pope’s behaviour and get away with it.
A child of seven can commit a mortal sin.
Think of this, you Pollyannas out there, and shiver.
I am pretty sure you already know about the scandal first unveiled by LifeSiteNews (actually, by Wikileaks). However, I think I might add a reflection or two of my own.
The first reflection is that when an openly evil man like Soros, who is against everything the Church stands for, thinks he can influence Vatican prelates through financial support it is obvious that something very, very wrong is going on within the Vatican walls. This would be true even if neither Cardinal Maradiaga nor Pope Francis were open to such kind of influence. It would be true because of the very fact that the like of George Soros think that they could influence the Vatican. Put in another way, the leaks show how corrupt Francis is even if he does not willingly accept the help of the likes of Soros. He is morally corrupt exactly because he thinks like them without need of monetary corruption.
The second reflection concerns, more directly, Cardinal Maradiaga. In his case the corruption is, more likely than not, monetary besides being moral. This does not mean, of course, that Maradiaga uses such donations to put money in his own pocket (though I want to go on record and say I would not be surprised at all if this were the case: one who thinks so evil can do a lot of evil). Still, it seems to me impossible that Cardinal Maradiaga does not know about such donations, and does not consider them an easy way to maintain a net of people through whom he can distribute favours and exercise influence.
The third and last reflection is, I am sure, in the mind of many: is this not the tip of the iceberg? How many “catholic” organisations are funded, directly or indirectly, by the open, public enemies of the Church? Should not Pope Francis, who always has such a big mouth about transparency, order an impartial review about such “donations”, and force all his bishops to answer about what happens in their own dioceses as well? Not holding my breath…
The smoke of George Soros has entered the Church.
Francis doesn’t seem fazed at all.
And it came to pass the Evil Clown appointed a “commission” to study the bloody obvious, and debate about heresy.
Predictably, he included the open dissenter Phyllis Zagano. Equally as predictably, the usual stupid feminist “I want a prick, or at least to be a priest” organisation
“praised the commission’s “gender-balanced” and “lay-inclusive” appointments and mentioned Zagano by name”.
Therefore, yours truly poses himself two questions: why the Evil Clown does this, and what will come out of it.
The first question has an easy answer: Francis does this in order to sow more confusion about the Priesthood, give some fodder to the feminist pigeons, and enhance his image as the Pope of dissenters, heretics, and perverts. He can’t change the priesthood more than he can change the rules of physics; but what damage he can do, he will. of course, the “commission” will end up stating the bloody obvious, but he will find the way to insert a foot note or two insinuating that maybe, just maybe, things aren’t so clear after all.
However, I think something more subversive than talk will come out of it.
Think of this: the V II church reacted to the Sixties and Seventies by parroting the Protestants with the new position of the “extraordinary minister for making oneself important”. They are, by universal admission, not ordained. Yet, they parrot the priest as much as they can. A lot of small “c” catholics live with it perfectly well, feel like little priest as they stand there with the chalice like idiots, and do not see a problem at all.
It stands to reason that this time the same will happen with the office of the Deacon: the Vatican will reaffirm that a Deacon is ordained, and can therefore only be male. However, it will waffle at length about “inclusion”, and end up with the institution of the equivalent of the “extraordinary minister” for the Diaconate. This office might be called the “extraordinary Deaconette”, for example, and be allowed to do as much of what the deacon does (which, I think, will be a lot. What does a lay deacon do? I think he visits the infirms, gives spiritual counsel to people, helps the priest in organising the work of the parish, things like that) and be called an “extraordinary Deaconette”, or some such like rubbish. The rabid feminists will condemn the “exclusion” but welcome the “step forward” (and demand a prick), the Pollyannas will be all excited that (phew!) “doctrine hasn’t been changed”, and the secular press will praise the Pope who, though clearly uncomfortable with Catholicism, does all he can to
demolish reform it.
Outlandish, you say?
