The late Joseph Henry Garagiola, Sr., related an anecdote about his lifelong friend, Lawrence Peter Berra, with whom he had grown up in The Hill section of St. Louis, Missouri, when he, Garagiola, appeared on The Jack Paar Show on Friday, October 2, 1964, on the National Broadcasting Company television network. The Jack Paar Progam was a weekly interview program that aired on Friday nights from 10:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. between 1962 and 1965 that followed something of the same format that Paar used when he hosted The Tonight Show between 1957 and 1962.
Garagiola appeared on the day before the incarnation of all evil in the world, the New York Yankees, would clinch their fifth American League pennant in a row, using his appearing with Jack Harold Paar to spin a few stories about his lifelong friend, Yogi Berra, who was serving as the Yankees' manager that year. One of these went something like this:
“Yogi came up to me the other day and said, ‘Before I say anything, I want to tell you something.’”
Well, before I discuss the conciliar attempt to equate the alleged "dangers" caused by "global climate change" with the daily slaughter of the innocent preborn by surgical means, I believe that it is important to comment upon the announcement made by a seventy-two year-old presbyter, Richard Bucci, concerning his decision to deny what purports to be Holy Communion in the Protestant and Judeo-Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical abomination of desolation to pro-abortion Catholics in public life if they seek to receive during the conciliar services at Sacred Heart Church in West Warwick, Rhode Island. This is truly an admirable and courageous move by “Father” Bucci, one that has earned him the scorn of pro-abortion politicians in the Ocean State, which is awash with such reprobates of the highest order.
Interestingly, Catholics in the State of Rhode Island constitute forty-two percent of the state’s population (U.S. States by Population of Catholics), the highest such percentage of Catholics as a percentage of a state’s population than any other state in the United States of America, although this 2019 figure represents a drop of ten percent from 2004 (see Tracking Religious Affiliaions of Every State), something that is the direct result, of course, of the conciliar revolution as well as Rhode Islanders who have moved elsewhere in the country.
Here is a news story about “Father” Bucci’s courageous announcement:
Father Richard Bucci, a 72-year-old parish priest at Sacred Heart Church in West Warwick, made the announcement last week in the form of a flier that he gave to parishioners and also mailed them to the homes of several lawmakers.
“In accord with the teaching of the Catholic Church for 2,000 years, the following members of the legislature may NOT receive Holy Communion, as are all the officers of the state of Rhode Island, as well as Rhode Island’s members of Congress,” the flier reads.
Fr. Bucci has been criticized in the media by several politicians in response to his flier.
One of those politicians, Rep. Carol McEntee, has called on Fr. Bucci to resign immediately.
Fr. Bucci told LifeSite that he has no intention of taking McEntee’s advice. “I’m not resigning and I’m not retiring either,” he said. “I don’t think that someone who is pushing the slaughter of the unborn should tell a priest what to do.”
Bottom of Form
McEntee also called on Diocese of Providence Bishop Thomas Tobin, “to withdraw and disown this notice and issue a full apology to all individuals who are listed in this notice.”
Bishop Tobin has not commented directly on the story, but diocesan spokeswoman Carolyn Cronin wrote in response to media inquiries last week that it was the “pastor’s duty” to apply the “norms for preparation and reception” of the sacraments.
“For every sacrament, the Church provides detailed norms for preparation and reception,” she wrote. “It is the pastor’s duty to apply them within his parish, in accord with Church law. This includes the proper reception of Holy Communion as outlined by the Code of Canon Law. Because the Church entrusts to each pastor the duty of teaching, sanctifying, and governing his parish, the daily pastoral and administrative decisions are made at the local parish level.”
The fliers also stated that pro-abortion lawmakers will not be allowed “to act as witnesses to marriage, godparents, or lectors at weddings, funerals or any other church function.”
Fr. Bucci told LifeSite that he was partly prompted to issue the flier by an incident at a recent funeral when he had to prevent McEntee from making a eulogy. Fr. Bucci does not permit eulogies during funeral services on any occasion and told LifeSite that it was only afterward that he realized who McEntee was. His other motivation, he said, was to mark the recent anniversary of the 1973 Supreme Court Roe v. Wade decision, which imposed abortion on demand across the country.
Fr. Bucci told LifeSite that he hopes that more Catholic clergy will take similar actions in order to defend the Holy Eucharist and the Church’s clear teaching on the duty of politicians not to vote for intrinsically unjust laws. “I’m saddened that there are not more bishops and priests doing this, because it is commanded in canon law,” he said
Fr. Bucci said that with the exception of one or two nasty calls he has received lots of support since the story became public. (U.S. presbyter bars pro-abortion state politicians from receiving what purports to be Holy Communion in the Protestant and Judeo-Masonic liturgical abomination of desolation.)
Once again, “Father” Bucci’s actions are commendable, although it should be noted that what he is doing should not be anything extraordinary as it is the duty of one who believes himself to be a Catholic priest to protect the integrity of what he thinks is the Blessed Sacrament by refusing to admit public reprobates to receive what purports to be Holy Communion. Once again, to paraphrase the late Father John Anthony Hardon, S.J., let me repeat myself so as to avoid any confusion: Although the Reverend Bucci’s actions are courageous for one ensconced within the structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism, it is a telling commentary on the state of degeneration within that false religious sect that his actions should be at all “controversial” or “extraordinary” as they are basic to the sensus Catholicus that compels one who believes himself to be a pastor of souls to protect the Blessed Sacrament and to avoid giving scandal to the faithful.
Unfortunately for “Father” Bucci, however, many Catholics in the State of Rhode Island have voted to elect one pro-abortion Catholic politician after another, and the current Governor of Rhode Island, Gina Marie Raimondo, United States Senator Jack Reed and, among others, Rhode Island Secretary of State Nellie Gorbea, who won re-election in 2018 with a little over sixty-seven percent of the vote, and we should remember that Madame Defarge herself, Hillary Rodham Diane Clinton, who is waiting in the wings to be tapped as her organized crime family of the false opposite of the naturalist left’s presidential or vice presidential nominee without spending any money to secure such a nomination, received 54.4% of the vote in Rhode Island to Donald John Trump’s 38.9%. This is but a result of the sad, intertwined legacy of Americanism and conciliarism, which, of course, had made its “official reconciliation” with the anti-Incarnational principles of the Modern civil state with the issuance of Gaudium et Spes and Dignitatis Humanae on December 7, 1965, under the authority of Giovanni Battista Enrico Antonio Maria Montini/Paul the Sick (haven’t use this title in a while) at the “Second” Vatican Council.
It is also unfortunately the case for “Father” Bucci that his “pope,” Jorge Mario Bergoglio, has appointed men such as the revolutionary named Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo, chancellor of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, who distribute what they believe is Holy Communion to pro-abortion Catholic public officials and Robert J. McElroy, the supposed “bishop” of San Diego, who has had the temerity to state that the socialist, globalist, statist ideological myth called “global warming” is responsible for more deaths than the global genocide caused by surgical baby-killing alone, to say nothing of the chemical eradication of the preborn and the nearly invisible and unaccepted slaughter of the innocent after being declared “brain dead” so that they can be vivisected for their vital bodily organs:
ROME, February 7, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — A Vatican bishop has defended giving Holy Communion to the pro-abortion president of Argentina and his mistress during their recent visit to the Vatican, saying it is a “problem” only for U.S. Catholics and Cardinal Raymond Burke.
The bishop accused this journalist of being a “fanatic” for challenging him on it.
In comments to LifeSite on February 6, Bishop Marcelo Sánchez Sorondo, chancellor of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, vigorously argued that canon law “obliges” a priest to give the Eucharist to openly pro-abortion politicians who present themselves for Communion. The Argentine prelate said that only someone who has formally been excommunicated can be refused the Sacrament.
“The [Argentine] president is not excommunicated, so I can give him Communion,” Bishop Sorondo insisted. His pro-abortion policies have “nothing to do with it,” he said.
Other positions are only “the opinion of some bishops of your country,” Bishop Sorondo told this correspondent, singling out U.S. cardinal Raymond Burke.
Canon 915 of the Code of Canon Law states: “Those who have been excommunicated or interdicted after the imposition or declaration of the penalty and others obstinately persevering in manifest grave sin are not to be admitted to Holy Communion.”
In February 2007, Cardinal Burke wrote an extensive, 55-page article for Periodica De Re Canonica titled “Canon 915: the discipline regarding the denial of Holy Communion to those obstinately persevering in manifest grave sin.” He went on to serve as head of the Vatican’s highest court for over a decade (2008–2014).
On January 31, a video circulated on social media of Argentine president Alberto Fernández, 61, and his mistress, Fabiola Yáñez, 38, receiving Holy Communion at a Mass celebrated by Bishop Sorondo in the crypt of St. Peter’s Basilica. Following the Mass, Fernández had a 45-minute meeting with Pope Francis during which the issue of abortion was reportedly not raised.
The new Argentine president has made the legalization of abortion one of his political priorities. At a presser following his meeting with the pope, Fernández confirmed that he will not back down on legalizing abortion and said the proposed legislation will be sent to Parliament on March 1.
Fernández divorced his wife in 2005 and has been living with 38-year-old actress Fabiola Yáñez since 2014 (having lived with another woman for nearly 10 years). After his election in December 2019, Yáñez moved to the Presidential Palace in Buenos Aires and acts as first lady despite their not being married.
The video of the couple receiving Communion caused an international scandal among Catholics. One high-ranking prelate told LifeSite that several Argentinians had expressed shock and dismay at their compatriots’ actions.
A frank exchange
In the wake of the controversy, LifeSite sat down with Bishop Sorondo at the Pontifical Academy of Sciences (PAS) headquarters in the Vatican, during a two-day workshop on the Global Education Compact — Pope Francis’s May 2020 initiative aimed at promoting a “new humanism.”
During the back-and-forth (see full exchange below), Bishop Sorondo said refusing Holy Communion to a pro-abortion politician runs contrary not only to the “common interpretation of the Church,” but also to “the bishops’ conferences of the United States, Italy, and Argentina — and the pope.”
When it was pointed out that bishops’ conferences have little authority in the matter, the Argentine prelate pivoted, justifying his position based on Pope Francis’s predecessors.
“Pope John Paul II gave Communion to all the people who are in favor of abortion — all the presidents,” he said.
The PAS chancellor also claimed that Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (who went on to become Pope Benedict XVI), as prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, sent a “second letter” to U.S. bishops “agreeing with the conclusion” that “we can give Communion to [pro-abortion politicians] because they are not excommunicated.”
Weighed against the facts, the bishop’s claim about Cardinal Ratzinger appears rather light. In fact, the cardinal’s main text on the issue strongly opposed giving Communion to pro-abortion politicians. (Lifesite News Exclusive: Vatican Bishop Defends Giving Commuion to Pro-Abortion Argentine President and Mistress.)
Although I have no intention of writing another chapter in the "Communion Wars" of 2020, I do want to point out, if ever so briefly, that the “clarity” Lifesite News believes was given by the then Joseph “Cardinal” Ratzinger in 2004 does not exist as clarity is opposed to the very constitutional of the complex mind that belongs to the nonagenarian dogmatic evolutionist, the now retired but not very hidden from the world “Benedict XVI.”
It should also be noted that Jorge Mario Bergoglio himself has hosted one Catholic pro-abortion public official after another, including then Vice President Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., in 2013, and that he publicly expressed the late Mario Matthew Cuomo when speaking to his son, Andrew Mark Cuomo, and his then concubine, Sandra Lee, when he approached them at the Cathedral of Saint Patrick in the Borough of Manhattan of the City of New York, New York, on Thursday evening, September 24, 2015. “Father” Richard Bucci is in a distinct minority here in the United States of America and around the world in the conciliar structures, which is why we must pray to Our Lady that he will avail himself of any opportunity to provided to him to speak to a true Catholic priest who could help him to make whatever preparations he would need to be validly ordained de novo as an alter Christus.
Not to be outdone, however, Jorge’s own man in San Diego, California, Robert J. McElroy, gave a speech at the University of San Diego on February 6, 2020, stating that “potential deal toll due to man-made temperature rise is ‘larger’ than abortion and ‘threatens the very future of humanity’:
SAN DIEGO, California, February 7, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) – The Bishop of San Diego has made the case that “climate change” could be considered “uniquely preeminent in Catholic social teaching” since the potential death toll due to man-made temperature rise is “larger” than abortion and “threatens the very future of humanity.”
In a speech titled “Conscience, Candidates and Discipleship in Voting,” which Bishop Robert J. McElroy delivered at the University of San Diego yesterday, the bishop said that Catholic voters need to discern where their priorities lie in the upcoming 2020 election.
“Frequently in discussions of the application of Catholic social teaching to voting, the question is raised whether one issue has a unique priority among all of the other issues in its claim upon believers in the current election cycle. Some have categorized abortion in that way. Others, climate change. This question deserves deeper scrutiny,” he said.
The bishop went on to list four points that he said should be considered when setting priorities.
Against the backdrop of these two monumental threats to human life, how can one evaluate the competing claims that either abortion or climate change should be uniquely preeminent in Catholic social teaching regarding the formation of Americans as citizens and believers? Four points should be considered.
- There is no mandate in universal Catholic social teaching that gives a categorical priority to either of these issues as uniquely determinative of the common good.
- The death toll from abortion is more immediate, but the long-term death toll from unchecked climate change is larger and threatens the very future of humanity.
- Both abortion and the environment are core life issues in Catholic teaching.
- The designation of either of these issues as the preeminent question in Catholic social teaching at this time in the United States will inevitably be hijacked by partisan forces to propose that Catholics have an overriding duty to vote for candidates that espouse that position. Recent electoral history shows this to be a certainty.
It is unclear if any deaths in the U.S. have resulted from “climate change.” Abortion, however, has taken the lives of over 60 million in the U.S. alone since 1973. In the last 100 years, there have been over one billion abortions worldwide.
n 2006, while speaking to members of the European People’s Party, Pope Benedict XVI stressed that as far as the Catholic Church is concerned, the “principal focus of her interventions in the public arena is the protection and promotion of the dignity of the person, and she is thereby consciously drawing particular attention to principles which are not negotiable,” he said. First among these, he said, is the “protection of life in all its stages, from the first moment of conception until natural death.”
Bishop McElroy painted a picture of the doom he believes “climate change” will cause.
Existing trajectories of pollutants being placed in the atmosphere by human activity, if unchecked, will raise the temperature of the earth in the coming decades, generating catastrophic rises in human exposure to deadly heat, devastating rises in water levels and massive exposure to a series of perilous viruses. In addition, there will be severe widespread famines, draughts and massive dislocations of peoples that will cause untold deaths, human suffering and violent conflict. The devastating fires in Australia are a sign of what lies before us, and a testimony that, on so many levels, our current pollution of the earth is stealing the future from coming generations. Because the trajectory of danger unleashed by fossil fuels is increasing so rapidly, the next ten years are critical to staunching the threat to our planet.
Last year, over 440 scientific papers were published that cast doubt on climate alarmism and the claim that man-made carbon emissions are causing changes to the climate.
Carleton University professor Michael Hart argued in his 2016 book Hubris that “climate change” advocacy is based on “poor science" and is being used as a Trojan horse for ramming through a social agenda on an unsuspecting population.
“I learned that both domestic and international actors had succeeded in using the poorly understood science of climate change to advance an ambitious environmental agenda focused on increasing centralized control over people’s daily lives,” he told LifeSiteNews in an August 2016 interview.
“Left-wing politicians discovered in climate change renewed ways to press their agenda of social and economic justice through coercive government programs. As John Sununu, the former governor of New Hampshire, sees it, ‘The alarmists have learned well from the past. They saw what motivates policymakers is not necessarily just hard science, but a well-orchestrated symphony of effort ... announce a disaster; cherry pick some results; back it up with computer modeling; proclaim a consensus; stifle the opposition; take over the process and control the funding; and roll the policymakers,’” he said. (McElroy Says Climae Change Potentially More Deadly than Abortoi and Threatens the Very Future of Humanity.)
Time does not permit a piece-by-piece dissection of the lies told by “Bishop” McElroy. However, let me start by explaining to McElroy and to Marcelo Sanchez Sorondo that they are going to have to reckon with Christ the King at the time of their Particular Judgments for their attempting to equate the direct, willful murder of innocent human beings under the cover of the civil with the “potential” for what would be, at best, the indirect deaths of people caused by “climate change,” noting that it is the sins of men that worsen the physical state of the elements as God, the very Creator all things, visible and invisible, does indeed chastise sinners by storms, droughts, floods, hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, Tsunamis and like catastrophes. It the sin of men that cause many, although not all, of the problems in the order of creation, including those in the natural world, just as Original Sin rent asunder the perfect balance and ordering of the world as God Himself had created it. Mind you, this is merely to illustrate what might be the cause if the “science” warning us about “climate change” was accurate and without an ideological predilection, which it is not.
Moreover, our true popes have explained that, yes, the taking of innocent human life in the womb under the cover of the civil law bring the Avenger of innocent blood down on the heads of civil magistrates such as those who are constantly being provided cover by the conciliar revolutionaries:
Those who hold the reins of government should not forget that it is the duty of public authority by appropriate laws and sanctions to defend the lives of the innocent, and this all the more so since those whose lives are endangered and assailed cannot defend themselves. Among whom we must mention in the first place infants hidden in the mother's womb. And if the public magistrates not only do not defend them, but by their laws and ordinances betray them to death at the hands of doctors or of others, let them remember that God is the Judge and Avenger of innocent blood which cried from earth to Heaven. (Pope Pius XI, Casti Connubii, December 31, 1930.)
Pope Pius XI noted that infants hidden in their mothers’ wombs hold first place when there is question of the defense of human life, and, of course, he warned public officials who support the daily slaughter of these innocents that “God is the Judge and Avenger of innocent blood which cried from earth to Heaven.”
Care to comment, “Archbishop” Sorondo?
Care to comment, “Bishop” McElroy.
Pope Sixtus V wrote about abortion as follows while explaining that the horror of the babies’ souls being consigned to Limbo for all eternity was a direct consequence of their execution in their mothers’ wombs:
"For who would not detest a crime as execrable as this — a crime whose consequence is that not just bodies, but — still worse! — even souls, are, as it were, cast away? The soul of the unborn infant bears the imprint of God’s image! It is a soul for whose redemption Christ our Lord shed His precious blood, a soul capable of eternal blessedness and destined for the company of angels! Who, therefore, would not condemn and punish with the utmost severity the desecration committed by one who has excluded such a soul from the blessed vision of God? Such a one has done all he or she could possibly have done to prevent this soul from reaching the place prepared for it in heaven, and has deprived God of the service of this His own creature." (translation by Reverend Brian Harrison, Could Limbo Be 'Abolished'?)
No “priority” given the extinction of innocent human life in the womb?
If “Father” Bucci reads this article, which is possible, I do hope that he can come to see that our true popes spoke as Catholics, not as equivocators whose Modernist suppositions predispose them to accept every fable as true while disparaging authentic Catholic doctrine as fantastic and “unrealistically” “rigid” formulations emanating from the “cold” hearts of modern-day Pharisees.
The conciliar revolutionaries, of course, are very committed to making “climate change” their preeminent cause politically even though the reality of the hysteria over “climate change” has always been a tool of socialists, statists, globalists and other quasi-totalitarians to limit legitimate human freedoms.
Climate "change" ideologues such as Robert McElroy, Marcello Sanchez Sorondo and their allies behind the walls of the Occupied Vatican on the West Bank of the Tiber River, including the man who appointed him, Eco Jorge Mario Bergoglio, are the just the latest in a long line of population, globalist, statist, totalitarian, socialist doomsayers who have been predicting that one catastrophic event after another would "life on earth as we know it, if not life itself" for the past fifty years. The "science" suppporting the myth the castrophic consequences of "man-made" climate change is bogus, and it is propagated by alleged "scientists" who receive grants from various national and/or international governmental entities, anti-population foundations and universities who feed off of each other's bogus evidence in the same manner that news reports about the so-called "Steele Report" that were fed by Federal Bureau of Investigation under the directorship of that great arbiter of what constitutes moral fitness, James Brien Comey, to mainslime media journalists such as Michael Isikoff as the basis of the bureau's false representations to the unconstitutional Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court to obtain permission to spy on an American citizen, Carter Page, who has never been charged with any crime or wrongdoing.
In other words, socialist ideologues who masquerade in white coats as "scientists" and present what appear to be impressive spread sheets contained in "scholarly" articles published by supposedly "respectable" academic journal keep using the same false foundation to come to pre-conceived conclusions that are designed to put pressure on world leaders to curtail a nonexistent "population growth" and to curb their citizens' legitimate freedoms while taxing them into oblivion so that they, the climate change ideologues, can keep earning hefty incomes as they produce their draconian tracts predicting that the "end is near."
Here are some examples of these dire predictions as found at Fifty Years of Failed Eco-Pocalytpic Predictions:
Thanks go to Tony Heller, who first collected many of these news clips and posted them on RealClimateScience.
Modern doomsayers have been predicting climate and environmental disaster since the 1960s. They continue to do so today.
None of the apocalyptic predictions with due dates as of today have come true.
What follows is a collection of notably wild predictions from notable people in government and science.
More than merely spotlighting the failed predictions, this collection shows that the makers of failed apocalyptic predictions often are individuals holding respected positions in government and science.
While such predictions have been and continue to be enthusiastically reported by a media eager for sensational headlines, the failures are typically not revisited.

Gas hydrate dissociation off Svalbard induced by isostatic rebound rather than global warming
Methane seepage from the upper continental slopes of Western Svalbard has previously been attributed to gas hydrate dissociation induced by anthropogenic warming of ambient bottom waters. Here we show that sediment cores drilled off Prins Karls Foreland contain freshwater from dissociating hydrates. However, our modeling indicates that the observed pore water freshening began around 8 ka BP when the rate of isostatic uplift outpaced eustatic sea-level rise. The resultant local shallowing and lowering of hydrostatic pressure forced gas hydrate dissociation and dissolved chloride depletions consistent with our geochemical analysis. Hence, we propose that hydrate dissociation was triggered by postglacial isostatic rebound rather than anthropogenic warming. Furthermore, we show that methane fluxes from dissociating hydrates were considerably smaller than present methane seepage rates implying that gas hydrates were not a major source of methane to the oceans, but rather acted as a dynamic seal, regulating methane release from deep geological reservoirs.

This would be amusing if it were not for the fact that these dunderheads take all this very seriously as they refuse to acknowledge that their draconian predictions were never fuflilled. These madmen must continue in this vein as this is how they make their corrupt living and it is how they can justify increasing efforts to kill off innocent human beings from conception through all subsequent stages. It is also how they seek to control those human beings who are, in the view of these insane people, "unfortunate enough" to use the earth's resources for their own daily sustenance without regard for the "survival of the planet." Yet it is that Jorge Mario Bergolio and his band of Modernist, econmanaical revolutionaries believe in everything bit of junk science that they can get their corrupt hands, which they use to give what they think is Holy Communion to adulterers, publicly known fornicators, praciting sodomites and their "spouses" and to every single politician in the world who supports the surgical execution of the innocent preborn and public recognition and esteem accorded to those engaged in the sin of Sodom, whose consequences were described by Pope Saint Pius V as follows:
That horrible crime, on account of which corrupt and obscene cities were destroyed by fire through divine condemnation, causes us most bitter sorrow and shocks our mind, impelling us to repress such a crime with the greatest possible zeal.
Quite opportunely the Fifth Lateran Council [1512-1517] issued this decree: "Let any member of the clergy caught in that vice against nature . . . be removed from the clerical order or forced to do penance in a monastery" (chap. 4, X, V, 31). So that the contagion of such a grave offense may not advance with greater audacity by taking advantage of impunity, which is the greatest incitement to sin, and so as to more severely punish the clerics who are guilty of this nefarious crime and who are not frightened by the death of their souls, we determine that they should be handed over to the severity of the secular authority, which enforces civil law.
Therefore, wishing to pursue with the greatest rigor that which we have decreed since the beginning of our pontificate, we establish that any priest or member of the clergy, either secular or regular, who commits such an execrable crime, by force of the present law be deprived of every clerical privilege, of every post, dignity and ecclesiastical benefit, and having been degraded by an ecclesiastical judge, let him be immediately delivered to the secular authority to be put to death, as mandated by law as the fitting punishment for laymen who have sunk into this abyss. (Pope Saint Pius V, Horrendum illud scelus, August 30, 1568.)
The conciliar revolutionaries support everything opposed to the sanctification and thus of the souls for whom Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ shed every single drop of His Most Precious Blood to redeem as complete the work of His fearful Passion and Death on the wood of the Holy Cross on Good Friday. The conciliar revolutionaries do not believe nor do they accept the simple Catholic truth that the entirety of social order is premised upon the right ordering of human souls in light of First and Last Things and in cooperation with the ineffable graces that Our Divine Redeemer has for won us and that flow into our hearts and souls through the loving hands of Our Lady, she who is the Mediatrix of All Graces.
No, the conciliar revolutionaries are in league with every single force of Antichrist imaginable, including the "climate change" ideologues who are cut of the same socialist material as are the Modernists in the Occupied Vatican on the West Bank of the Tiber River:
An interesting pattern developed early in the official involvement in global warming. If a person challenged the claim that humans were causing global warming (AGW), it was assumed they were on the political right. If you supported AGW, then you were on the left. This categorization is not related to the science, but to the political nature of the science involved. This occurred in two major parts. The original objective of those using global warming for their political agenda and the marginalizing of those who questioned the science by linking them to industries and their wealthy owners. The author believes the evidence shows that human CO2 is not causing AGW, that the hypothesis is not proved. This article is not written to pick political sides. Rather, it is an attempt to help understand the battles waged and the confusion this created for the public, the politicians, the media, and a majority of scientists.
The world needed the new paradigm of environmentalism. The problem is that a few grabbed it for a political agenda. They used it as a vehicle to take the moral high ground, to claim only they cared about the environment. They argued that everyone else was guilty of environmental destruction because of their avarice and wasteful ways. The debate about global warming is a subset of environmentalism that was also hijacked using the same themes.
At the first Heartland Conference in New York in 2004 Vaclav Klaus twice Prime Minister of the Czech Republic was the keynote speaker. His opening remark that we have just gone through 70 years of communism so why the hell would you want to go back to that brought a standing ovation. It supports the fact that environmentalism and AGW is a political agenda pushed by extremely wealthy and powerful left wing people most of who made their money exploiting the environment. The psychology of that is beyond the discussion here, but consider the hypocrisy of George Soros, Maurice Strong, Bill Gates, the Rockefeller’s, Leonardo DiCaprio, and Ted Turner among many others.
Maurice Strong described himself as “a socialist in ideology, a capitalist in methodology”.
This description appears to apply to them all.
The confusion for the public that wealthy people are also socialists is similar to that about another person. Most people think Adolf Hitler was a right wing fascist, but he was a socialist who also promoted a form of environmentalism. The word “Nazi” stands for National Socialism.
Collectively, most of these wealthy socialists acted through their privileged group called the Club of Rome. The Club was formed in 1968 at David Rockefeller’s estate in Bellagio, Italy. In their 1994 book The First Global Revolution Alexander King and Bertrand Schneider wrote.
The common enemy of humanity is man. In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself.”
They claim the list of enemies is designed to unite people. In fact, it is needed to overcome what they see as the divisiveness of nation-states and to justify the establishment of one-world government or global socialism. They believe that global warming is a global problem that national governments cannot resolve. The changed behavior they want is for all to become socialists.
They finally settled on global warming as the environmental issue best suited for their goal. Of course, the plan was just the beginning. One of my favorite cartoons from the New Yorker showed Moses on the mountain with the Ten Commandments. The caption read “Great idea, who is going to fund it?” Global warming and the identification of human produced CO2 as the problem suited all the political, financial, and pseudo-religious controls a socialist group could desire.
The Kyoto Protocol was presented as a solution to the problem of human-caused global warming. Those who created the Protocol also created the problem. Through the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) they produced the science required to support their claim. It is a well-thought out, well-planned, classic circular argument. One of the early examples occurred in the book Ecoscience: Population, Resources, Environment co-authored by Paul and Anne Ehrlich and President Obama’s current Science Advisor John Holdren. While discussing the non-existent problem of overpopulation they wrote,
Indeed, it has been concluded that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society.
The question is who “concluded that compulsory population-control” could be sustained? The answer is the authors did. The next question is who decides “if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society?” Again, it is the authors. So, they claim there is a problem, then they decide when it is severe enough to warrant complete suspension of legal controls against such totalitarianism. (As found at: The author of this piece is, it would appear, completely ignorant of the truth about the sale of indulgences, a myth that was refuted by someone who is not quoted in a favorable context frequently but who was correct on this matter, James Cardinal Gibbons: Faith of Our Fathers, Chapter XXVIIs, as found on a sedeplentist website. The anti-sedevacantist Tradition in Action featured a series of articles by a Jesuit author about Martin Luther and his lies, including those about the “sale of indulgences,” which was discussed brief in Luther’s Appalling Instabilities & Contradictions.)
The conciliar revolutionaries not only invent their own myths about the Catholic past as they propagate errors in the realm of dogmatic and moral theology that would make many of the heretics of yore blush with shame, they also helped to propagate the myths of every Christophobic force at work in the world today, which is why anti-population propagandists Paul Ehrlich and Jeffrey Sachs, among others, have been invited to speak at Vatican conferences and is why various proteges of George Soros serve on the “Pontifical” Academy for Life and the Pontifical Academy for the Sciences (see Jorge's Band of Theological Racketeers Legitimize Paul Ehrlich, The Green Jorge Stikes Again and Attack Dogmatic Truth, Open the Doors Wide for George Soros.)
The well-meaning "Father" Richard Bucci is in the wrong church as the Catholic Church could never equate such a bogus claim as "climate change" with the taking of innocent human lives in the womb or, worse yet, the destruction of souls engendered by its own false form of worship and its false doctrines and hideous pastoral practices.
We must remember that there is no naturalistic solution to the difficulties posed by the combined forces of Modernity in the world and Modernism in the counterfeit church of conciliarism that seem to beset us with blunt force almost all the time.
We deserve chastisement not only for our sins but for our failure to profess "openly and unflinchingly the Catholic doctrine, and in propagating it to the utmost of our power," being willing to accept crumbs from careerist politicians while turning a blind eye and a deaf eye to the evils they support as a matter of principle and as the basis of public policy. Oh, yes, we, each of us, deserves the chastisement that is upon us.
Father Frederick Faber described the situation of the modern world by explaining how the passage of the life of the Church Militant on earth is summarized in a Corpus Christi procession:
I said that Corpus Christi was naturally a day of processions. Now the whole history of the Church may be viewed as in itself a vast and various procession, seen under all the vicissitudes of war, as a caravan of pilgrim soldiers fighting their way from east to west. Now it is in little straggling bands with the apostles on the Roman Roads, or now encamped with the obscure Proselytes of the Gate round the Jewish Synagogues in the Roman Provinces. Here we behold it, an army of martyrs, with the pontiff at its head in the dim chambers of the Catacombs; there it is out before the world's eyes, all gleaming and glancing with the ensigns of imperial favour and command. One while it is pushing its way across the desert to reach the unevangelized nations; another while it is curbing the inundations of the whole barbarian north. Now it has absorbed the whole civilized world into itself and in its mediaeval splendours; and again it is mingled through the crowd of base literatures, of wicked philosophies, of corrupted civilizations, and of debased diplomacies, never lost to the eye, always cognizable, always suffering, always royal always unlike anything else in the world, like the children of Israel in the Red Sea when the solid waters stood up as a wall on their right hand and on their left.
The procession of the Blessed Sacrament is a compendium of Church History. It is a disclosure of the mind of the Church in all the vicissitudes of her warlike pilgrimage. It makes us feel as past ages have felt and as generations will feel in times to come. It gives us a taste of her supernatural disposition, and helps powerfully to form the same disposition within ourselves. It is not the triumph of the Church because she has finally destroyed her enemies and is victorious. Every day is only bringing new enmities to view, and unmasking false friends. The whole of the extraordinary versatility of human wickedness is simply at work to harass and exhaust the Church by the multiplicity and unexpectedness of its attacks. The empire of the demons abounds in fearful intelligence, backed by no less fearful power, and the Church has to prove it all. There is not a change in the world's destinies which is not a fresh trial for the Church. There is not a new philosophy or a freshly-named science, but what deems, in the ignorance of its raw beginnings, that it will either explode the Church as false, or set her aside as doting. There is no new luxury of our modern capitals, but the devil or the world enter into it with a mysterious possession, in order to make a charm of it against the Church and her mission to the souls of men. Heresy can be pious, reverent, philanthropic, a zealot for public morals, patriotic, liberal, conceding, if so only the Church can be wounded by the stratagem. No! it would be premature indeed if at this day the Church should sing her paean because she has finally destroyed her enemies and is victorious.
Neither is the feast of the Blessed Sacrament a triumph because she is at peace. She never gets beyond a truce, and it is seldom enough that she ever has so much as that. She can never be at peace until the day of doom, nor while there is yet a soul, that is not already reprobate, left unsaved. Her very alliances must needs be full of suspicions from long experience, and in reality they are rather fresh anxieties than permissions for repose. She has often been in alliance with the governments of the world, and thereby has many a soul been saved that would have been lost. But such alliances cost her the blood of martyrs and the toilsome sweat of popes, and at the best she can live in them only as the timid deer in the forest whose every echo is ringing with the hunter's horn. She is less at her ease in a Concordat than in a Catacomb. So with educational and reformatory movements; so with legal efforts for political liberties; so with philosophical and scientific leagues; so even with the graceful enervations of beautiful and refining art. She has her place in all these things, because she has a mission to them all; but she does not, may not, dwell with them in peace.
Neither does she triumph because heresy is stifled all over the earth. For new heresies wax while old ones wane; and each schism as it decays is the fruitful parent of many more. In truth heresies are a condition of her life, and the unwitting cause of nearly all the intellectual magnificence of her dogmatic teaching. Nevertheless it is doubtless a pleasure and a triumph to her children to see how year after year various heresies seem to shed their Christian elements, and to work their way with a blind fatality outside the ring of revealed truth altogether. There is not perhaps a single year in England which does not see some section of protestant opinion repudiate its own starting point and anathematize its own first principles, and so either lose its hold on earnest minds, or drop with indifferent minds into the growing gulf of simple weary unbelief. An Englishman should be the last person in the world to deem the Church was triumphing because heresy is extinct.
Neither again is she triumphing because she has outlived so many foes who at one time seemed to be actual conquerors: though this phenomenon must be a daily subject for her devout thanksgiving and renewed confidence in God. The turbid flood of protestantism, daily subsiding and leaving waste tracks of dismal mud, behind, never covered the earth so dreadfully as Arianism in the early centuries; and as the one passed, so will the other. Protestant prophecies are coming untrue, and making their rash author a laughing-stock year after year. Date after date of the infallible destruction of the Papacy passes on with the harmless course of the four grateful seasons, and the calendar of heretical prophecy is left disdainfully, cruelly unfulfilled; and they will figure in the half antiquarian novels of our posterity as the vagaries of the Rosicrucians, and the sabbaths of the Lancashire witches do in ours, emblems and monuments of the undignified weaknesses of the human mind. Still souls are lost meanwhile, and the Christian eye is fixed far more on that lamentable fact than on the successive extinction of her foes, which it is as natural and common-place a thing for her to expect as that the sun shall rise, or the harvest, plentiful or scarce, shall come in its appointed season.
Neither does she triumph because the Blessed Sacrament is to her a foretaste of the joys of heaven and of its eternal satisfactions. Men do not triumph in anticipations, and the feast of victory must be something more than the pleasure ardour of desire. Nay, truly, if I shall not seem to be uttering a conceit, I will say that this one day is the only day in the year in which she does not seem to think of heaven; rather, she acts as if it had come to her, and she needed not to go to it. And this brings me at once to the real cause of her spiritual triumph. It is because she has Jesus Himself with her, the Living God, in the Blessed Sacrament. It is no commemoration of Him; it is Himself. It is no part of the mystery of the Incarnation; it is the whole mystery, and the Incarnate One Himself. It is not simply a means of grace; it is the Divine Fountain of Grace Himself. It is not merely a help to glory; it is the glorified Redeemer Himself, the owner and the source of all glory. The Blessed Sacrament is God in His mysterious, miraculous veils. It is this real presence of God which makes Catholicism a religion quite distinct from any of the so-called forms of Christianity. It is this possession of her God which is of necessity the lifelong triumph of the Church. Nothing short of this could be a a real or sufficient triumph to the Bride of Christ. (Father Frederick Faber, The Blessed Sacrament, written in 1854, republished by TAN Books and Publishers in 1978, pp. 20-23.)
Although He is not be found everywhere today, there are places scattered about the arlth where God is indeed present Himself in the Most Blessed Sacrament in these days of apostasy and betrayal and persecution.
Why do we fear a little chastisement?
We have His Most Blessed Mother, who has given us numerous aids (the Brown Scapular, the Rosary, the Miraculous Medal, the Green Scapular) for our sanctification and salvation.
Why do we fear a little chastisement?
Why do we fear a big chastisement?
Why do we fear at all?
Suffering is indeed the path to triumph for all eternity in Heaven.
Can't we be generous in offering up the difficulties of the present moment to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary as we pray as many Rosaries each day as our states-in-life permit and as we spend time with Our Beloved where He can be found in fully Catholic venues where no concessions to conciliarism or its wolves in shepherds' clothing?
The fear engendered by Modernity and Modernism will dissipate the more that we envelop ourselves in the things of eternity.
Yes, chastisement is a blessing in and of itself for which we should be most grateful.
The chastisement of the moment is being sent to us in large part to help us find our way out of the strait-jacket that is the Judeo-Masonic lie of naturalism and the related strait-jacket of the conciliar church that has made is peace with and has propagated as her own these very lies.
I know that I have no hope of saving my immortal soul, stained with so many sins over the course of my lifetime, absent the rod of correction which God uses to beat me down into dust and to humiliate me for my stubborn refusal to give my whole heart and soul to Him at all times. We should be grateful for being permitted to live in these challenging times so that the chastisements of the moment may help us to make reparation for our sins as the consecrated slaves of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary so that we will be better able to think, to speak and to act as Catholics at all times as we seek to discharge the Spiritual and Corporal Works of Mercy.
Our Lady's Immaculate Heart will triumph. We simply need to be faithful we accept hardship as the price of our sanctification and salvation:
For which cause I admonish thee, that thou stir up the grace of God which is in thee, by the imposition of my hands. For God hath not given us the spirit of fear: but of power, and of love, and of sobriety. Be not thou therefore ashamed of the testimony of our Lord, nor of me his prisoner: but labour with the gospel, according to the power of God. (2 Tim. 1: 6-8.)
With our Rosaries prayed well and our fervent preparation for the season of Lent that begins in but fifteen days, let us take refuge in the simple fact that millions upon millions who have gone before us marked with the Sign of Faith, that is, the Sign of the Cross, have been willing to embrace that Cross with love, joy and gratitude.
Why can't we do so in the midst of our own difficulties?
Why can't we?
Viva Cristo Rey! Vivat Christus Rex!
