Upon giving us another handful of unworthy Cardinals, Francis told them not to call themselves “Princes of the Church”. How very fitting.
The hate of this man for everything Catholic permeates every aspect of it. So much so, that even his allies and consorts must be downplayed and made little, so that the bigger aim of the destruction of the Church – the same Church out of which Jorge Bergoglio scrounged his entire existence – may be pursued as aggressively as possible.
The church of Francis revels not only in its self-destruction, but in the dirtying of everything that is good and pure. Priests must smell, and Cardinals must smell in a very preeminent way. Perverted priests get to bask in the limelight, whilst the relatively orthodox (I use the term loosely) ones are not even received; nay, they do not even get their letters answered.
Francis hates everything that is Catholic. He hates in a particular way everything that reminds him – and us – of the unique role of the Church and of the demands she makes on us. A strong Church will always be a living condemnation of everyone like Francis, in whichever age they lived. A weakened, dirtied, perverted church is much better suited to inoculate in the weak, the lazy, and the stupid the germs of this socialist religion without God, in which you kneel in front of the poor but not in front of the Tabernacle.
Smell away, Cardinals old and new. You don't deserve anything better, none of you. All the humiliation Francis showers on you are, in the end, merited. Because you stink.
You all stink of Francis now.
It appears Francis spoke in front of an audience and, for the first time in many months, managed not to say anything unCatholic.
I am not surprised. The man is clearly lazy. So lazy, in fact, that he does not even bother to remember today what he said yesterday (cue the constant praise of tolerance, building bridges and the like and the persistent insults to everyone he does not like).
One who is so lazy that he does not care for a modicum of coherence will also be too lazy, at times, to insert some “off the cuff” heretical comment in the speeches written for him. He must have thought he would just go through the text and be done with it. Yerba Mate awaits.
This is the only way we get an orthodox Pope this day: when he can't be bothered to be unorthodox. In Francis orthodoxy is not a feature, it's a bug.
I wish him salvation. But I wish that the Church can be freed of this scourge soon, too.
After one entire (work) day of feverish expectation, the news has just reached me that Justice Kennedy will n ot retire… Yet.
However, the fact that he had his 30 years celebration brought forward one year seems to indicate that he will still resign at some point before next June, hopefully at the end of Summer.
It does not have to be all bad. Three or four more months of Trumpism will help our cause anyway, and will strengthen the resolve of the Senate to give the entire Western civilisation another decent judge. In the meantime, it is clear Gorsuch is all we hoped for, and possibly some more.
My childish enthusiasm and excitement of the entire day has gone. I also am under no illusion that, when Kennedy resigns, his replacement will be an epic battle. But I wanted this fight, and I will now have to wait.
It appears that justices of the US Supreme Court give a kind of solemn reception to their employees every 5 years in office : 5, 10, 15, and so on.
You will be pleased to know that Justice Kennedy, who also follows the custom, has just given such a reception, for year… 29.
It does not take a genius to understand what this means.
God willing, the announcement will be made tomorrow. This would be huge.
Mind, a huge battle will ensue as there will be no shortage of RINO Senators reflecting whether it is not better to profile themselves as “middle of the road”, “uniparty” little weasels and find excuses to stop the appointment of a decent candidate. But it seems to me that they would be underestimating the mood in the Country at large.
This can be huge. Gorsuch was the replacement for the loss of Scalia, but another like Gorsuch instead of Judas Kennedy would tip the scale for very long. And if Baader-Meinhof …. apologies…. Bader Ginsburg decides to retire too – or else the Grim Reaper asks to have a word with her – that would be huge, squared.
I can't contain my excitement. I have been waiting all month. 29 years reception? Really?
Finger crossed. Lots of prayers. Tomorrow could be one of those days that change the course of history.
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle!
Pity Nancy Pelosi, old botoxed hag marching towards hell with a very solid faith in her divinity. As to the others, perhaps a couple of words are in order.
Firstly, Catholicism has never said that homosexuality is compatible with anything. On the contrary, Catholicism has always maintained that homosexuality is a sexual perversion, and not one iota will ever change in Christ's and the Church's teaching. Therefore, when the old hag claims that homosexuality is compatible with Catholicism, she is saying that Catholicism is a fraud and she does not know jack of Catholicism. She is, therefore, being stupid twice.
Secondly, I wonder whether there are still people who believe in basic decency in Washington or among Democratic voters at large. If you come to the point of thinking that sodomy is in any way normal, it is clear that your mind has already been perverted to the point of not seeing the stench and the filth of sexual perversion. And yes, the two go hand in hand, because it is impossible to be disgusted by sodomy and still think that homosexuality is compatible with anything different from a perverted mind.
Thirdly, these people just forget plain common sense. They think the human brain has worked the wrong way until their own botoxed mug appeared on the scene. Even the Bolscheviks loathed homosexuality, and the Gospel had nothing to do with it. It was just plain thinking, of which even those people were capable.
Pity the old botoxed hag. So old, so vain, so stupid, and such a damn fool.
Canada is becoming more and more interesting as an example of Nazi Liberal sub-culture. Predictably, this will hit the local church squarely in the face. A well-deserved punishment for the cowardice and stupidity of the local clergy.
As Gloria TV reports, every priest will be assumed to be a potential criminal starting from 2020: fingerprints taken, never allowed to be alone with children, and – astonishingly – with parents legally allowed to assist to the first confession of the children preparing for Communion (I detect the pungent smell of sacrilege here, and observe that, if needs be, a normal grate would do the job admirably; and failing that, a camera without audio; but we live in stupid times).
What this means is that the Canadian Government is treating priests as a risk category; like a man released from jail for sexual offences, say. He might be good, but boy, he is a… a….. priest!! How can you trust those people?
In a way I understand the Canadian Government: the Canadian clergy must be abundantly infested with perverts, and perverts must be kept away from children. I would welcome the sacking of every perverted priest all over the planet. However, the grave issue of perverted priests should never be allowed to impinge on the Sacraments.
One also wonders whether other obvious categories “at risk” (teachers certainly, and then so-called religious that are not Catholic, including Muslim ones; I remind you here that the so-called religion of peace has no problems with the screwing of a girl of nine) are treated in the same way. Perhaps they are, perhaps they aren't. You never know what Nazi Anti-Clerical Nanny has in store for you.
However, what clearly emerges is this: fifty years of faggotry within the Priesthood have created a situation of such alarm, that a liberal wordly Country now thinks it can decide how the Church administers the sacraments.
Well done, Canadian fag priests and their enablers. Well done, effeminate Canadian clergy. You are now all potential pedophiles. Can't say you don't deserve it. Can't say I think differently, either. You smell like the sheep, and must be kept at distance.
I want you to know I am not sad about this at all.
I have written many times about Garrigou Lagrange's affirmation that it is reasonable to suppose that the majority of those living in Catholic Countries avoid hell. Very reassuring, for sure.
However, Garrigou Lagrange was writing this in the Fifties, when Catholic Countries or territories like France, Italy, Spain, Austria or Bavaria were almost totally, and extremely solidly Catholic.
Nor were those the Catholics of today. Very many of them not only went to Mass at least every Sunday, but stood pretty near to the Sacraments, knew about salvation more than Francis ever imagined and had, crucially, a great fear of the Lord, which is the beginning of wisdom.
If we compare them with today, we see how Catholicism has today become such a thin varnish that I seriously, seriously doubt Garrigou Lagrange would make the same claim today.
Today's “catholics” not only don't go to Mass, but they consider it utterly normal to call themselves (if they must) Catholic whilst making their own religion. They tattoo themselves (grave matter!) without a second thought; try to tell them this is grave matter and you will likely be insulted. They contracept, fornicate, often abort. They distance themselves from everything of the Church past and present that does not square with their own personal theology. Most importantly, they have no compunction about any of this.
In all ages, people have sinned. But in a strong Catholic culture with a strong fear of the Lord, repentance followed the sin, and most people were reasonable enough to be afraid of what a sudden death might do to them.
Perhaps even more importantly, a strong Catholic culture naturally enforced Catholic behaviour in the public square. When I was in grade school, not one of the pupils either in my or in my siblings' classes was the son of concubines (this was very easy to see then, because the wife had to take the family name of the husband). Not one. The scenario is inconceivable today even in once Catholic Italy. You want more? I knew the first guy who lived more uxorio when I was fifteen (a young teacher at my school). I knew of the first non Jewish boy who was not baptised when I was nineteen, and I still remember mine and my classmates' shock. I never had a school mate with tattooes.
It was all normal then, but it seems unbelievable today. Today we live in an age of mass rebellion. Still, we think that we should have access to the same mercy our forefathers (who would have been terrified I do not say of concubinage, but of a tattoo!! Something considered the preserve of godless Mariners, Pirates and jail inmates) earned with their fear of the Lord and their access to the Sacraments.
There is a big difference between, say, the girl who sleeps with her bethroted and is afraid of hell for that and the girl who sleeps with her boyfriend and thinks that she is right, because lurv. The first one is, clearly, also in danger of damnation, but she will always have access to a mercy the second one has cut herself out of. Still, there seems to be this thinking according to which God's mercy is something due to us, whilst we rebel to Him not out of weakness, but of sheer hubris. This thinking is so spread today that it is, actually, the default position among many who call themselves Catholic, let alone those who don't.
Fools, all of them. Fools in this generation as in every other before or after, because the rules don't change according to what you think about them. And yes, let us hope that the Lord will look with more mercy on the poorly instructed; but don't expect Him to have the same attitude with those who thought they had no need of, or even resented the instruction.
If we asked our Grand-Grandmother what the probable destiny of a person is who never darkened a church in decades, lived in sin and boasted of it, and died suddenly or anyway unrepented, said grand-grandmother would think we are pulling her leg, and we certainly weren't born Sherlocks. She might dismiss our statement as a bad joke. She might even (if she takes us seriously) slap us in the face for our obvious lack of fear of the Lord. Interestingly, it is very reasonable to assume that our Grand-grandmother would refuse to recognise the vast majority of our Catholic neighbours as Catholic in any way, shape or form. She would, on the whole, be pretty right.
Heck, I wonder how many children in once Catholic Italy are today actually not even baptised, as their vaguely deist parents think that 'ceremonies are not important' and 'God does not care for formalities'. These are, of course, the offspring of parents who did not believe fornication can lead you to hell if there is lurv, and such rubbish.
Let's get rid of the rules. I want to have it my own way. Father Faggot, whom I still despise, seems to think the same anyway. I think him an idiot, but I will use his godlessness whenever it's convenient to me.
Does it mean, then, that we live in a time in which the majority are Reprobates? I cannot see how it could be any other way, and it seems to me that those born now are in a much worse situation than those born only 20 or 30 years ago. Logically, it really cannot be any other way.
If the difference between a strong Church which rigidly enforces Catholic living and the pathetic, effeminate church of today showering her mercy talk on every fornicator is non existent or very little, then the Church has no importance. If a life of fornication gives me the same chances of salvation as a life of abstinence, let me grab those titties! If salvation is showered in the same way on a faithless and on a faithful generation, we and all our forefathers are idiots.
However, we aren't idiots. We are, actually, pretty smart; because we have the fear of the Lord, which is the beginning of wisdom. A wisdom of which most of this generation seems utterly deprived. It was this wisdom that kept old sinners near the Sacraments and, in the end, out of hell. The current crop of heathens and self-appointed mini-messiahs has nothing of it. They march toward their judgment in the utter persuasion of their goodness, and in the entitled expectation of whatever salvation they think might exist. They literally think that if there is a God they deserve salvation because they love polar bear cubs.
This is the the thinking of heathens. We know (or do we know it still?) where most of them end.
So yes, we are probably living in an age of mass Reprobation; and this mass Reprobation is made evident to us every day, in that we see that very many around us actually live like picture book reprobates: fornication, concubinage, rejection of the sacraments, tattooes , abortions, soon euthanasia….
and not a care in the world beside climate change.
It is the 13 March 2513. 500 years ago, in the midst of a great crisis of faith, a heretical Pope was elected to the See of Peter.
No one remembers the event. No one – apart from people passionate of history, particularly of church history – remembers him. The second part of the XX and the first part of the XXI Century are recollected as times of great confusion, but the population at large does not care to remember those obscure times.
There is no need for it. A string of very strong Popes (Pius XIII to Pius XVII, who reigned between 2053 and 2144) fully restored Catholic orthodoxy in less than three generations, and the Church influence on Europe, America and Africa has been so strong since that the obscure times of heresy are barely remembered beside the moniker “one hundred years of heresy” or, more shortly, “the troubles”. Most Catholics don't know about Francis more than they do about the Synodus Horrenda.
There were some smaller challenges during this time. In the middle of the XXIII Century, a movement originating from Germany tried to make adultery and sodomy a venial sin and were therefore called the “Venialists” or, as they called themselves, the “Merciful”. But Pope Benedict XIX completely destroyed the heresy starting from 2352, and in twenty years the name was barely remembered.
Not that it was all so linear as it seems centuries later, mind. It never works that way. Pope Pius XIII was elected only in 2053, after his disgraceful predecessor Francis IV started to offer communion to Muslims and worked at an “interplanetary ceremony” able to unite Muslims, Jews, Hinduist, Sikh and Atheists in a “Common worship” meant to become the standard of a “unifying church of the persons of good will” (the project failed when the Pope died). What we barely notice today was a very bumpy road that went on for many decades then, for several decades from Francis I to Francis IV. But in the end, Truth triumphed. As always.
What did the Church do with Francis I to IV? What she always does with heretics: condemn, destroy, forget.
How many remember Huss or Wyclyffe? Ever wondered why? The Church destroys her heretics in a most definitive way: she obliterates them from the public consciousness.
No, you don't really need to know what Huss, or Wyclyffe or the Sillon movement preached. The Church has taken care that most people will never pose themselves the question. She destroys heretics even in their tombs. They deal with heretics so you don't have to.
And so we are here in 2513, in an age of unprecedented prosperity and religious revival. All is good in Vatican land.
You just have to be patient.
The next (disgraceful) Consistory is about to happen, and I read around about a possible confrontation between those Cardinals who still think they are Catholic and those those who don't want to make public they aren't, with even a rebuke of the Evil Clown in the cards.
It all seems rather far-fetched to me.
Amoris Laetitia has been released fourteen months ago, and not one Cardinal has dared to condemn either the document or the one officially taking paternity of it. To think that the reaction will happen now is tantamount to think that it is the mere absence of the physical presence of the Pope that prevents the Cardinals from doing their job; as if being in the physical presence of the Pope were an indispensable component of any reaction to heresy, with the obvious consequence that Francis would only need to avoid meeting every Cardinal he doesn't like to avoid ever being corrected. I admit as an excuse for inaction it would be wonderful if it were realistic, but it's too dumb even for a two-seconds scrutiny. So no, the Cardinals have no excuses and, actually, no clothes.
I am afraid that the reality is much sadder that a matter of geography and proximity: there simply is, as I write this, not one Cardinal around willing to stand up to the Pope. Not one. Francis could meet all the Cardinals he wants, and they would not be any problem at all. Actually, they would thank him for being so kind that he allows them to flatter him without any shame.
Of course, hope is the last to die. But I suggest you put this in your day dreaming drawer rather than thinking a public correction from the Four Kitten (much less a vast number of Cardinals) is in any way, shape or form in the cards.
We are going to have to go through this alone, and perhaps the next generation and the one after that, too. We should realistically apprise the situation and realise that as I write this even more FrancisCardinals are about to be appointed.
We might be surrounded by perverts, atheists, communists, and kitten in red for a long, long time.
Whilst my readers are, generally speaking, a pretty intelligent bunch, there are always people lurking here who seem to lack the ability to connect the dots and think long-term. For their benefit, and for the instruction of the (sadly) non-Catholic, it is fitting to reiterate why the correction is so important.
Truth cannot be changed. Doctrine, properly intended, cannot be changed either. Catholics will always be held to Truth, no matter what Francis says, because Francis cannot dispose of what is not his. There has never been, and there will never be, the possibility for the faithful to follow a doctrine they must know is wrong merely because the priest, the bishop, the cardinal or the pope say so.
However, the job of the clergy is to help the faithful to properly instruct themselves and their conscience, and to be good shepherds of the sheep entrusted to them. They have, therefore, the grave responsibility of denouncing heresy wherever it may come from. Not, mind, in order to avoid that the faithful are justified in being heretical (they never are) but in order to help them to stay out of trouble.
Now, doctrine will not change whether the correction comes or not, and no one will be justified in thinking that truth has suddenly changed. However, if no correction comes all future generations will be witness of the greatest betrayal of the sheep ever perpetrated by their own shepherds, and the latter's silence will shame them for all centuries to come. If, on the other hand, the correction does come, this will make it far more difficult for those seeking excuses to hide behind the finger of Francis' satanical “mercy”, and the posterity will record with at least a modicum of satisfaction that when the crisis was at its top, at least some Cardinals (and those who will follow them if they take the lead) had some Catholicism left in them.
The Church's existence is not at stake because the Church is indefectible. Truth is also not at stake because Truth is unchangeable. Souls are – ultimately – also not at stake because – ultimately – God does not allow Francis and his troops of atheists, heretics, perverts and cowards to decide who goes to hell.
What is at stake is the reputation of this disgraceful generation of our clergy, and the way it will be seen by God above and by all the generations after us: as an absolutely total disgrace without any hint of redemption and any extenuating circumstances, or as an almost total disgrace with a minority of voices ready and willing to fight for Christ. In our lifetime, the correction would deal a mortal blow to Francis' reputation, absolutely blowing his papacy in the air and shaming its the incinerated rests for all millennia to come.
If I were any one of the four Cardinals I would have very, very uneasy nights, knowing that whilst the Catholic world and all Catholic posterity are waiting for me to do my job I have been pathetically meowing for more than a year. Which, in the age of instant information, is a very long time indeed. And I am not sure that, if these four refuse to do their job, their punishment in hell will not be worse than the one meted to the silent cowards; then in my book, a silent coward is still not as bad as a grandstanding one.
The recent, tragic fire in London has not failed to produce the predictable amount of individual destinies and sob stories; something which in more serious times would have been considered very bad journalism for cleaning ladies and is now, actually, mainstream all over the West.
One of these stories is the one of the two Italian concubines living in the tower. At least, this is how a despicable fake Catholic internet publication describes them (without using the word, of course; “couple” is so much more XXI Century).
The horrible publication reports that the woman, in her last phone conversation with her mother in Italy (I know, heartbreaking; but I don't do cheap journalism for cleaning ladies so let's skip on this) would have said to her mother: “I am about to go to heaven”.
There is, in the horrible fake Catholic publication, no hint that the two would have needed to manage a perfect contrition to I do not say go to heaven straight, but – judging from what is plain to see – merely to avoid hell. The sob story is reported as a tale of hope and courage, with no one questioning the apparent self-evident truth of the public adulterer in a state of mortal sin committing a huge sin of presumption with her last breath, and still managing to be canonised by the whining press because hey, we are all teddy bear lovers after all.
Of course, we all wish the unfortunate people a perfect contrition and, one day, a place in paradise. But it is utterly indicative of our times that I might be one among very few pointing out to the extreme danger of damnation in this situation, and to the total absence – in the atrocious, fake Catholic publication reporting the news – of any sign that would induce one to have a reasoned hope that they avoided hell (something like the two kneeling together and praying the Blessed Virgin to forgive their sins with sincere sorrow; but you know how it works). Instead, we have the stunning “I am about to go to heaven” claim which, actually, sounds like the… perfect contrary of a perfect contrition.
This is what the Age of Stupidity has done to people. When they think of heaven, it is only the grotesque version they read about in cheesy Facebook posts. Even the very near approaching of death is – unless we have not been told something – not enough to elicit in people the fear of the Lord, that is: the beginning of wisdom.
Pray for the dead. But for heaven's sake, administer some truth to the living.
So, you are an old, lewd boor who does not believe in Transubstantiation at all. What do you do?
1. You call the Eucharist a “humble meal”, a Protestant expression denoting the lack of Transubstantiation.
2. You refuse to kneel in front of the Blessed Sacrament, because you don't kneel in front of a piece of bread.
3. You want to give communion to adulterers, because a bit of bread and wine does not do harm to anyone.
Francis is an arrogant boor, but at least in this he shows clearly a coherent thinking.
Methinks, workers in hell are digging an extra pit just for him.
Let us imagine a lowlife is savagely beating a prostitute in the middle of the night, when he sees a major fire developing in a London residential tower and promptly alerts the Fire Brigade. Who would comment on this saying “thank God for wife-beating”?
The fact is, wife-beating is (if you are Christian or at least sensible; if you are Muslim it's different) objectively wrong. Therefore, you don't thank God for something objectively wrong just because it caused a chap to save many lives.
It is, therefore, entirely absurd to say “thank God for Ramadan” just because it caused people to be out on the street in the night and promptly alert the Fire Brigade and/or help the locals. Islam is evil, and Ramadan is its fruit. That's all there is to say.
This, even assuming that these roaming Muslims were so decisive in promptly alerting the firefighters and/or giving assistance ; which I don't believe a bit, because in London you always have people around at night (yes, even in certainly not glamorous North Kensington) and the flames attracted major attention and a huge crowd in very short time.
Let us stop with this PC nonsense. The Ramadan-followers are the reason why we are having major terrorism problems.
A common trait of the Modernists of the last 50 years is the canonisation of V II, which was – they say – a true “outpouring of the Spirit” (Who had been clearly dozing up to then), leading the sheep to pastures new.
The Evil Clown is, obviously, the embodiment of this mentality, with the addition of abundant steroids. You would, therefore, think that Francis would leave Humanae Vitae alone.
This thinking has a fundamental flaw: it assumes that heretics operating within the Church have coherence and moral integrity. Both assumptions are clearly wrong.
The worship of V II is only acceptable inasmuch as it proposes and spreads heretical thinking. If it is even feebly orthodox it must be disposed of.
It is therefore not at all surprising that – as Roberto de Mattei revealed – the Evil Clown be now working on a “reinterpretation” of Humanae Vitae allowing for artificial contraception and, very possibly, who knows what else.
I can't wait for Cardinal Burke presenting new Dubias, obviously after having explained to us that the document meant to pervert Humanae Vitae upholds it. Don't wait for an answer from Francis, either. With opponents as weak and dumb as Burke & Co. he can go on undisturbed and proceed to Amoris Laetitia.
Prepare yourself for Conteaceptionis Laetitia and who knows what after that, courtesy of the immense cowardice of our Bishops and Cardinals.
Thanks, Cardinal Burke & Co. May the Lord give each and every one of you the just reward for your brilliant CINO, feebly meowed fake opposition to heresy.
But don't worry, dear reader. The Church of Francis isn't changing her teaching at all.
She is merely giving the faithful a heretical option in order to be more inclusive.
The horrible tragedy which unfolded in London last night led me to think – as always – of the eternal destiny of the dead whilst the media focuse – as always – on easy emotions.
As I write this, we don't know how many dead we will count. Around 500 lived in the tower destroyed by the fire, but we now know the fire brigade rescued many in the initial phase of the fire and was able to get to the 20th (not only the 12th) of the 24 floors.
A tragedy of such dimensions took place in what appears to have been a “council house” (things aren't called they way they are anymore these days, so who knows), which I suppose (like many others) vastly over represented with heathens and atheist, but certainly also with many good Christians living behind those walls.
The latter (the Christians) certainly had it easier to manage a perfect contrition, and the Lord in His mercy may have saved them from the worse. But as to the others…
how many, who have lived in perfect godlessness, discover God when death approaches? How many, linked to the cruel, false religion of a child rapist in the middle of Europe, have been able to claim invincible ignorance after dying in their perverted cult?
The crude reality is that if you live like an atheist or an infidel you will probably die an atheist or infidel. No, there are no brownie points for an early death. Death is, actually, never one day earlier than God has decreed or allowed. What counts is the state of the soul at the moment of death, and no emotional reporting of the Buggers Broadcasting Communism will change a iota in that.
As always, let us use these shocking event for a sobering reminder: the day of the Lord comes like a thief in the night. When my hour strikes, will I be prepared?
Pray for the dead of the fire, and take care that these moment instil in you a stronger desire to be prepared at all times.
