As one who has experienced clerical bullying and bludgeoning first hand during my years with The Wanderer from 1992-2000 and even from several quarters in the Catholic underground in this time of apostasy and betrayal, I can attest to the simple fact that one of the oldest tricks of prelates and clergy, whether truly ordained or not, accused of immoral or improper behavior and/or the covering and enabling of that behavior is to shoot the messenger, vilify the victims, threaten, character assassinate, mock, disparage and, if all else fails, to claim that the accusers are “mentally ill.”
Although time limitations prevent a fuller explication of things have been mentioned many time in the past on this site, it is nevertheless useful to review some of the means by which conciliar “bishops,” chancery factotums, lawyers, insurance companies and others have sought to avoid the revelation of their wrongdoings before going into full denial and character assassination mode once foul deeds of perverse monsters, who should never have been ordained/installed in the first place, if their intimidation efforts fail to keep the lid on their scandals. The pattern of abuse is always the same. For the sake of brevity, though, let me summarize this pattern once again for those who access these articles:
(1) Denials that anything occurred.
(2) Attempts to claim that they were “framed” or “set-up” or that various remarks were taken out of context and/or various actions must be viewed in “context.”
(3) Accusations that that whistle-blowers or victims are lying and are motivated by malice.
(4) Efforts to intimidate whistle-blowers or, in the case of the counterfeit church of conciliarism, victims of clerical abuse and their family members/friends/supporters with threats of lawsuits, sometimes threatened by chancery officials or attorneys for insurance companies in the employ of a diocese or religious community.
(5) Numerous threats to publicly humiliate the accusers with a recitation of their own sins and faults.
To this list, though, can be added a new characteristic as Oscar Andres Maradiaga Rodriguez (see Jorge and Oscar's False Gospel of False Joy, part one, Jorge and Oscar's False Gospel of False Joy, part two, Jorge and Oscar's False Gospel of False Joy, part three, Jorge and Oscar's False Gospel of False Joy, part four, Jorge and Oscar's False Gospel of False Joy, part five, Jorge and Oscar's False Gospel of False Joy, part six and Jorge and Oscar's False Gospel of False Joy, part seven), who was the principal author and apologist of Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s Evangelii Gaudium, November 24, 2013, has attempted to discount the sin of Sodom by such serial predators as Theodore Edgar McCarrick as a “matter of the private order” that should not be brought to the light of day:
It does not seem correct to me to transform something that is of the private order into bombshell headlines exploding all over the world and whose shrapnel is hurting the faith of many. I think this case of an administrative nature should have been made public in accordance with more serene and objective criteria, not with the negative charge of deeply bitter expressions. (Apostate Oscar Rebuke's His Apotate Pal Jorge's Critics.)
What the apostate from Honduras care to admit is that it is one thing to sin and to be sorry, seeking thereafer to make a good, sincere Confession and resolving to amend one's life. It is quite another to persist in sin unrepentantly, worse yet to draw others into sinful act, no less to do so in order to corrupt and control them. Clerics such as Theodore Edgar McCarrick used their power to corrupt and control others, and this is not a matter of the "private order" whatsoever. This is scandalous behavior that must be exposed to the light of day, something that Saint Peter Damian did in the Eleventh Century:
According to Damian, the vice of sodomy "surpasses the enormity of all others," because:
"Without fail, it brings death to the body and destruction to the soul. It pollutes the flesh, extinguishes the light of the mind, expels the Holy Spirit from the temple of the human heart, and gives entrance to the devil, the stimulator of lust. It leads to error, totally removes truth from the deluded mind ... It opens up hell and closes the gates of paradise ... It is this vice that violates temperance, slays modesty, strangles chastity, and slaughters virginity ... It defiles all things, sullies all things, pollutes all things ... This vice excludes a man from the assembled choir of the Church ... it separates the soul from God to associate it with demons. This utterly diseased queen of Sodom renders him who obeys the laws of her tyranny infamous to men and odious to God... She strips her knights of the armor of virtue, exposing them to be pierced by the spears of every vice ... She humiliates her slave in the church and condemns him in court; she defiles him in secret and dishonors him in public; she gnaws at his conscience like a worm and consumes his flesh like fire. ... this unfortunate man (he) is deprived of all moral sense, his memory fails, and the mind's vision is darkened. Unmindful of God, he also forgets his own identity. This disease erodes the foundation of faith, saps the vitality of hope, dissolves the bond of love. It makes way with justice, demolishes fortitude, removes temperance, and blunts the edge of prudence. Shall I say more?"
No, dearest St. Peter Damian, I think not.
Like every saint before him, and every saint that will ever come after him, St. Peter Damian exhorts the cleric caught in the vice of sodomy to repent and reform his life and in the words of the Blessed Apostle Paul, "Wake up from your sleep and rise from the dead, and Christ will revive (enlighten) you." (Eph 5:14) In a remarkable affirmation of the Gospel message, he warns against the ultimate sin of despairing of God's mercy and the necessity of fasting and prayer to subdue the passions:
"... beware of drowning in the depths of despondency. Your heart should beat with confidence in God's love and not grow hard and impenitent, in the face of your great crime. It is not sinners, but the wicked who should despair; it is not the magnitude of one's crime, but contempt of God that dashes one's hopes."
Then, in one of the most beautiful elocutions on the grandeur of priestly celibacy and chastity ever written, Damian reminds the wayward cleric or monk of the special place reserved in Heaven for those faithful priests and monks who have willingly forsaken all and made themselves eunuchs for Christ's sake. Their names shall be remembered forever because they have given up all for the love of God, he says.
One of the very interesting historical sidebars to Damian's treatise is that he made no preference to the popular practice of distinguishing "notorious" from "non-notorious" cases of clerical immorality--a policy which can be traced back to the 9th century and the canonical reforms on ecclesiastical and clerical discipline by the great German Benedictine scholar and Archbishop of Mainz, Blessed Maurus Magnentius Rabanus (776?-856). Under this policy, the removal of clerics found guilty of criminal acts including sodomy, depended on whether or not his offense was publicly known, or was carried out and confessed in secret.
In cases that had become "notorious," the offending cleric was defrocked and/or handed over to the secular authorities for punishment. But if his crime was known only to a few persons such as his confessor or religious superior, the offending cleric was privately reprimanded, served a penance and then was permitted to continue at his post, or transferred to a similar post in a different diocese. Given the aggressive and predatory nature of the vice of sodomy, it is highly likely that such a policy contributed to, rather than inhibited, sodomical practices among clerics and religious between the mid-800s and the early 1000s. In any case, it was unlikely that Damian, who openly expressed his condemnation of too lenient canonical regulations related to the punishment of clerical sodomites and was so judicious in preserving the integrity of the priesthood and religious life, would have approved such a policy.
Saints are realists, which is no doubt why St. Peter Damian anticipated that his "small book" which exposes and denounces homosexual practices in all ranks of the clergy including the hierarchy, would cause a great commotion in the Church. And it did.
In anticipation of harsh criticism, the holy monk puts forth his own defense as a 'whistle-blower'. He states that his would-be critics will accuse him of "being an informer and a delator of my brother's crimes," but, he says, he has no fear of either "the hatred of evil men or the tongues of detractors."
Hear, dear reader, the words of St. Peter Damian that come thundering down to us through the centuries at a time in the Church when many shepherds are silent while clerical wolves, some disguised in miters and brocade robes, devour its lambs and commit sacrilege against their own spiritual sons:
"... I would surely prefer to be thrown into the well like Joseph who informed his father of his brothers' foul crime, than to suffer the penalty of God's fury, like Eli, who saw the wickedness of his sons and remained silent. (Sam 2:4) ... Who am I, when I see this pestilential practice flourishing in the priesthood to become the murderer of another's soul by daring to repress my criticism in expectation of the reckoning of God's judgement? ... How, indeed, am I to love my neighbor as myself if I negligently allow the wound, of which I am sure he will brutally die, to fester in his heart? ... "So let no man condemn me as I argue against this deadly vice, for I seek not to dishonor, but rather to promote the advantage of my brother's well-being. "Take care not to appear partial to the delinquent while you persecute him who sets him straight. If I may be pardoned in using Moses' words, 'Whoever is for the Lord, let him stand with me.' (Ezek 32:26)"
As he draws his case against the vice of clerical sodomy to a close, St. Peter Damian pleads with another future saint, Pope Leo IX, urging the Vicar of Christ to use his office to reform and strengthen the decrees of the sacred canons with regard to the disposition of clerical sodomites including religious superiors and bishops who sexually violate their spiritual sons.
Damian asks the Holy Father to "diligently" investigate the four forms of the vice of sodomy cited at the beginning of his treatise and then provides him (Damian) with definitive answers to the following questions by which the "darkness of uncertainty" might be dispelled and an "indecisive conscience" freed from error:
1) Is one who is guilty of these crimes to be expelled irrevocably from holy orders?
2) Whether at a prelate's discretion, moreover, one might mercifully be allowed to function in office?
3) To what extent, both in respect to the methods mentioned above and to the number of lapses, is it permissible to retain a man in the dignity of ecclesiastical office?
4) Also, if one is guilty, what degree and what frequency of guilt should compel him under the circumstances to retire?
Damian closes his famous letter by asking Almighty God to use Pope Leo IX's pontificate "to utterly destroy this monstrous vice" that a prostrate Church may everywhere rise to vigorous stature." (Mrs. Randy Engel, The Rite of Sodomy, pp. 53-55)
Writing five hundred years after Saint Peter Damian and Pope Leo IX, Pope Saint Pius V explained the just penalty due clerics caught in the act of unnatural vice:'
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 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.)
Death, not "brotherhood" and "mainstreaming" for the sake of "inclusivity," was what Pope Saint Pius V, faithful to the teaching of Saint Paul the Apostle in his Epistle to the Roman cited above, believed should be imposed on the clergy as well as the laity who were caught in "such an execrable crime" that caused him "such better sorrow" shocked his papal mind as he sought to "repress such a crime with the greatest possible zeal."
A true pope understood the horror of such a detestable sin on the part of the clergy and sought to administer punishment to serve as a medicinal corrective for other priests and to demonstrate to the laity the horrific nature of such a moral crime.
A false "pope"seeks to appear as an agent of mercy when he is actually an apostle of eternal death.
Mind you, I am not suggesting the revival of this penalty in a world where it would not be understood and where the offender would be made a "martyr" for the cause of perversity, only pointing out the fact that the Catholic Church teaches that clerics and others in ecclesiastical authority who are guilty of serious moral crimes are deserving of punishment, not protection, by their bishops. Such is the difference yet again between Catholicism and conciliarism.
Matters of the "private order," Oscar? Take it up with Saint Peter Damian and Pops Saint Pius V, Oscar, you wicked apostate.
Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, of course, instituted the Sacrament of Penance on Easter Sunday when He appeared to ten of the Apostles after His Resurrection for our sins to be absolved by priests in the internal forum of the confessional. We must, however, be truly sorry for our sins and to promise to amend our lives, and what is confessed in the internal form. a phrase that does not appear to be part of Maradiaga Rodriguez's lexicon, of the confessional can never be revealed as the seal of the confessional is sacrosanct.
The perverted faux prelates and clergy of the counterfeit church of conciliarism whose perverted misdeeds have come to light have had no intention of reforming their lives and they have used every opportunity imaginable to indemnify the agenda of the homosexual collective. They do not have guilt because they believe their behavior is not sinful, only a matter of the "private order."
As noted in Another Front in the Conciliar Civil War, part five, much, although not all, heresy is a cover for moral corruption of one kind or another.
For example, Martin Luther’s lust, intemperance and gluttony left him with such a guilty conscience that he permitted himself to believe in the lie that his sacramental confessions did him no good as he thought that he could not reform his life. This led the poor drunken lecher and glutton to conclude that the human being was evil and that the graces won for us by the shedding of every single drop of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ’s Most Precious Blood on the wood of the Holy Cross during His Passion and Death on Good Friday were nothing more than a few snowflakes to cover-up the “dung heap” of human nature. Reform of a “believer’s” life was impossible, Luther concluded, as all that was necessary to be “saved” was to profess the belief in the “Lord” as one’s personal savior. Luther’s revolution against the Divine Plan that God Himself instituted to effect man’s return to Him through His Catholic Church was driven by his insatiable lust. The intemperance and gluttony were the result of his lust as it is frequently the case that those with who guilty consciences have to find a means to anesthetize their guilt and the shame that God permits sinners to experience so that they may repent and reform their lives after making a good, integral confession of their sins.
Similarly, the Protestant Revolution in England, although it was egged on by Talmudists and by crypto-Lutherans close to King Henry VIII, was driven by that monarch’s own insatiable lust for a cunning teenage, Anne of Boleyn. Heresy is not always the result of sins of impurity nor are all sins of impurity the result of heresy. Of course not. However, those steeped in personal corruption and who have no desire to reform their lives are very prone to find a means of their “faith” and a steadfast persistence in their wickedness.
Oscar Andres Maradiaga Rodriguez, speaking for Jorge Mario Bergoglio himself, of course, does not believe that sins against the Sixth and Ninth Commandments are serious “matters.” Their words and their actions lead reasonable men to conclude that they do not believe that those who commit fornication, adultery or sodomy (and its related vices) are sinners, only “believers” who need to be accompanied. And all protestations to the contrary, they do not believe that priests/presbyters who engage in perverse behavior with adults are guilty of anything other than being “human” and having a “need to be loved,” which is why they must bludgeon, browbeat, intimidate, disparage and character assassinate anyone who calls sin by its proper name. The scandals that have been given to the faithful who are attached to the structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism have been caused by false prelates and their confederates who are committed to the homosexual collective’s mainstreaming of perversion as just another expression of “human love.”
Adding an exclamation point to this matter, the greatest clerical bully of them all, Jorge Mario Bergoglio—remember him, the “suffering ‘pope’ of silence”—has been on a tear at the Casa Santa Marta as he strike out not only at Father Carlo Maria Vigano but also at anyone who seeks to “uncover the sins” of his “bishops” who are guilty of protecting clerical abusers, including pedophiles and even those within the ranks of the conciliar “hierarchy” who use their positions of authority to compromise and corrupt seminarians and predators, and thus “scandalize” the faithful:
In these times, it seems like the 'Great Accuser' has been unchained and is attacking bishops. True, we are all sinners, we bishops. He tries to uncover the sins, so they are visible in order to scandalize the people. The 'Great Accuser', as he himself says to God in the first chapter of the Book of Job, 'roams the earth looking for someone to accuse'. A bishop’s strength against the 'Great Accuser' is prayer, that of Jesus and his own, and the humility of being chosen and remaining close to the people of God, without seeking an aristocratic life that removes this unction. Let us pray, today, for our bishops: for me, for those who are here, and for all the bishops throughout the world.” ("The Suffering 'Pope' of Silence" Blisters Vigano and Friends.)
It's always the same with revolutionaries, whether they are in the world of Modernity or in the world of Modernism, as it is of the nature of rebels after they acquire power to use the same tactics of intimidation and fear that they claim were used to “repress” their ascent to power. In other words, revolutionaries are hypocrites as they want to use power arbitrarily and autocratically to repress anyone who dares to criticize their tyrannical ways, and no one is more hypocritical and more tyrannical the master tyrant and bully from Buenos Aires, Argentina, Jorge Mario Bergoglio.
Revolutionaries are worried about those who dissent from their own ideological "orthodoxy" because they are fascists.
Revolutionaries wax on and on about mercy while showing mercilessness to those who disagree with their revolutionary schemes.
Revolutionaries speak of humility while being arrogant and dismissive of those they view with contempt.
Revolutionaries say they eschew those who “judge” others while judging “counter-revolutionaries” with great harshness.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio is now what he has always been, a fascist, a man who uses insults, invectives and methods of active persecution to marginalize, humiliate and punish those he believes must be excluded from his plans of inclusiveness.
As noted on this site so many times in the past, however, the likes of Jorge Mario Bergoglio have been a dime a dozen from the very earliest days of the conciliar revolution, which was itself foisted upon by the faithful by clericalist bullies who hated Catholic Faith, Worship and Morals and who even used the pulpit in the 1970s to denounce members of the laity in various parishes who were known for their outspokenness against the conciliar revolution.
Bergoglio and his fellow fiends have used some of the same methods as employed by Joseph Stalin, Nikita Khrushchev, Leonid Brezhnev and Mikhail Gorbachev to stigmatize those guilty of “thought crimes” with diagnoses of “mental illness” in order to break down their resistance to ideological “truth” by means of psychiatric reprogramming, which is why he sought to persecute the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate by placing them under the supervision of the late “Father” Fidenzio Volpi, O.F.M., and why he is still persecuting the Franciscan Sisters of the Immaculate. It is also why he was merciless and scandalous in his treatment of a group of traditional religious sisters in Argentina when he was Jorge Mario “Cardinal” Bergoglio:Introduction:
"Msgr." Bergoglio is a cold and authoritarian man, in the service of a part of a certain modernist ideology. Now he is a "pope." A change in mentality perhaps, even if our degree of respect for him changes, given the loftiness of his office?
Let us look at the story of the excellent periodical "Página Católica". During the times of his being "archbishop" of Buenos Aires he disbanded the holy Order of nuns that was founded in the 18th century by Mother Antula, María Antonia de Paz y Figueroa, the Congregation of the Daughters of the Divine Savior, that had various colleges and constructed a House of Exercises in Buenos Aires, a jewel of colonial architecture and a placed blessed with so much graces.
Now, coming from the "Holy See", follows another act of despotism towards another Congregation, the Franciscans of the Immaculata with the same ferocity.
Reading the story demonstrates that there isn't any line added because it is sufficient for any Catholic heart to understand and repudiate such a horrible spectacle of ecclesiastical tyranny against the Faith, to holy vocations, and good customs.
Lamentably, it is not possible to reproduce the interviews given to the nuns thrown out on the streets by "Msgr." Bergoglio. But the can be found by opening the webpage of http://pagina-catolica.blogspot.com/2013/07/frailes-de-la-inmaculada-y-un-drama.html

Friars of the Immaculate and a "porteño" drama.
The nuns of the Holy House of Exercises, an analogous case with the Franciscans of the Immaculata?
Modernism demands that the poor pay for their own destruction.
Today the walls of the Holy House of Exercises breath in solitude.
"Your preferred option has to be the poor," the Neo-Modernists tell us who are abundantly governing the Church, every time there is a clamor to celebrate the true Catholic Mass.
Thus, they foment an ideological animosity between Traditionalism and Charity, on one hand and an erroneous and automatic identity between Progressive Neo-Modernism and true charity towards the needy.
In effect, as sound Catholic doctrine teaches, Charity firstly corrects the erring and showing them the pathway to salvation. Thus true love is yearns for the good of the beloved; the good which is ultimately nothing other than to merit everlasting life.
By this, those who long for the diffusion of the traditional doctrine and liturgy, are the first who have opted preferentially for the poor, by trying to provide them the Mass that has brought holiness upon millions of Catholics throughout the last 2,000 years; and even in the mere human order, it is a monument of good taste and the most exquisite of human arts; incomparably more splendid than that "witches' sabbath" of the Neo-Modernists of the Novus Ordo that they have accustomed the universal church.
But those who proclaim themselves advanced in the solicitude of the poor, many times drop their mask without them knowing it.
We know that "pope" Francis has taken that name in order to demonstrate a life developed in poverty. Therefore, we must suppose that the Friars of the Immaculata are truly poor.
Notwithstanding, the decree signed in July 11 by which was intervened upon the Congregation by means of a Pontifical Commissary, that includes only three established conditions:
1. Designate Fr. Fidenzio Volpi, OFM Cap, Apostolic Commissar ad nuntum Santae Sedis of the Congregation, with all the applicable powers.
2. Dispose "that it corresponds upon the Institute of Franciscan Friars of the Immaculata, to reimburse all the expenditure incurred by the Commissary and the personnel that will be eventually designated, as honorary for their services."
3. Besides what has been mentioned, the "Holy" Father Francis has disposed that everyone of the religious of the Congregation of the Friars of the Immaculata are obliged to celebrate the liturgy according to the "ordinary" form and that eventually, the use of the "extraordinary" form (Vetus Ordo) has to be explicitly authorized by the corresponding authorities, for every religious and/or community that asks for it."
Thus, we see the knavishness as it manifests itself. Then, in the end, some poor monks will be bereft of the greatest of all treasures, the Traditional Liturgy of the Church. They have to pay for such a great price!
Those who might have doubts as to what this intervention can possibly mean should consider the following: the decree that we have analyzed can only have two dispositions: rob the Tridentine Mass and determine who will pay for the cost of such operation.
Go forth, standard bearers of the poor knowing that God will repay you abundantly and immediately for your great generosity!
The situation that has been raised has had a similarity with a dramatic case that occurred in Buenos Aires under the "archbishopric" of "Cardinal" Bergoglio. We have spoken for some time about this lamentable subject matter, but let us allow ourselves to return to it even if it be succinctly, then we can illustrate to ourselves about what to expect from the Institute of the Friars of the Immaculata.
Founded in the 18th century by Mother Antula and Maria Antonia de Paz y Figueroa, the Congregation of the Daughters of the Divine Savior has reached a degree of prosperity that, in our time, it has been possessor of various Catholic Colleges with thousands of students, one located in the exclusive Avenue of the Liberator in San Isidro, over all, of the terrain where they erected the Sanctuary of St. Cayetan in Liniers (a lot of money in alms) whose revenue was administered by the nuns.
At an opportune moment, "Cardinal" Bergoglio asked of the Mother Superior to transfer the property of the Sanctuary to the Archbishopric of Buenos Aires. Days later, after consulting her councilor Mother Hilda Ledesma responded to the Cardinal in the negative.
Having had a crystal ball maybe would have avoided the catastrophe of ceding to the disposal of the now "pope" Francis, in order to avoid the despoliation of all the goods and the near extinction of the order, as later accounted.
Because, in no time, he designated an apostolic visitor in the person of a Jesuit friend of Bergoglio: the current bishop Hugo Salaberry de Azul, in the province of Buenos Aires. The excuse: that close to 30 nuns lived in the Holy House of Exercises, some young women who in the majority are from Paraguay won for Christ by the zeal of one nun of that nationality, were there detained against their wills and isolated from society.
The isolation is concluded by the fact that these sisters were instructed in the same convent by professors designated as ad hoc, that which was made to avoid excessive contact with the world in which many nuns are used to nowadays.
A little later, in the first hours of the morning, when some nuns haven't yet groomed themselves, an unfolding of unusual Curial functions informed them that the "Holy See," with the signature of "Cardinal" Re, has designated as Apostolic Commissar on "Msgr." Horacio Garcia, Pro Vicar General of the Archdiocese. The lettered "priest" that was supposed to accompany him excused himself for not being in agreement. In his place came "Fr." Alejandro Russo, current Rector of the Cathedral of Buenos Aires (a favor in return for a favor?)
"Cardinal" Re reigned over the Congregation of the Religious and Institutes of Consecrated Life, who lived here and had one relative in the Archbishopric Curia. A man very close to Bergoglio, who was the one who earned for him the ring of the Fisherman is being flaunted by Francis and that he inherited from a secretary of Paul VI.
The end of this long story, that would give an argument by its vicissitudes to a drama that will be a sure best seller in book stores, ended with the Mother Superior confined to in Cordoba, the sisters returned to the world in such a manner that it can be said that the congregation ceased to exist, and the money and properties in the hands of the "Apostolic Commissariate" whose intervention is prolonged sine die.
An eminent example if how these Pharisees care for the poor, is the case of Mirna, a young Paraguayan woman who had been in the convent since 14 years of age and was bidden farewell by "Msgr." Garcia who put her in the streets without informing her parents, and without even giving her a single cent to look after her needs.
We put on video all of her declarations and we invite our readers to reread an old post of this blog where she tells her story.
At this point of the story our readers allow us to vent with a phrase that is quite irreverent: to those who want to cheat, are good for nothing losers. You who call yourselves progressive, not only do you put souls in grave danger, neither do you know how to look after the needs of the body.
According to the very victims, the Apostolic Commissary disposed that the nuns and novices find out their true vocation, with a method that we can call an immersion in the world: psychoanalysis and including exposure to eroticism. About this, it has already been written in this blog. (Translation provided by Mr. Juan Carlos Araneta.)
This persecution of anyone who is in least bit devoted to the immutable truths of the Catholic Faith and to the Immemorial Mass of Tradition represents a total rejection of everything to do with the “no church” that he believes had shackled him. Those he denounces as Pelagians and Pharisees and restorationists and as "rigid" and "dead" and "cold-hearted" and "corrupt" are reproaches to his conscience and a reminder to him of all that he despised in his youth, all that kept “Bergoglio from being Bergoglio” prior to March 13, 2013. The man who is now having the time of his life, and he is “humbly” letting the world know that this is so.
There is no longer any “conservative” Karol Josef Wojtyla/John Paul II or "traditional" Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict XVI (who is only nine years older than Bergoglio even though the latter refers to him as “the dear old man”) to control his wildest impulses to speak his mind without concern for those things he believes “do not matter” to God, you know, such little things as “doctrine,” “integrity of worship,” “purity of morals” and fealty to pastoral duties.
With all of the myriad problems within the counterfeit church of conciliarism, Jorge Mario Bergoglio sees fit, as circumstances dictate (one year it’s Raymond Leo Burke in his sights and another year it’s Carlo Maria Vigano), to engage in daily screeds against traditionally-minded Catholics, who comprise but a tiny fraction of his false church's membership, and to consider as “divisive” those within it who are opposed to the revolutionary agenda of conciliarism, including, of course, the Protestant and Judeo-Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical service.
Bergoglio’s goal is to break by whatever means necessary, including sheer tyranny and psychological terrorism, any and all “counter-revolutionary cells” such as the one his obsessed, pathological mind that seethes with hatred for the true Catholic Faith believed that the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate represented. He used the late “Father” Volpi to send a clear, unmistakable signal that this will happen to every other community in the Motu world if their clergy dare to utter word one about the "Second" Vatican Council and the Protestant and Judeo-Masonic Novus Ordo service. He is only waiting until his predecessor, Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, dies before picking off every center of "counter-revolutionary" activity, whether real or imagined, he believes is an impediment to his vision of the conciliar revolution.
Although largely anecdotal and not as of yet recounted in a systematic manner in any one place, many of us know numerous instances in which priests and religious have been sent to psychiatric reprogramming centers because they resisted the first wave of the conciliar "reforms" in the middle to latter part of the 1960s. This persecution of those deemed to be "conservative" or "rigid" has continued in many dioceses and religious communities to this very day.
We were told some eleven years ago now of some very compelling stories by a consecrated religious woman who had worked as a nurse prior to entering the religious life, one of which involved a woman religious in the 1960s who was told by her superiors to report to a psychiatrist for “evaluation” because she would not give up her community's traditional habit.
The psychiatrist knew the consecrated religious because she had worked in the same hospital for a while as a nurse. He told to get out of the hospital immediately, that there was nothing wrong with her, but that she should not return to her community as there was an effort to imprison those priests and religious who resisted the conciliar changes. The psychiatrist led the religious woman, who told the story to our narrator, herself in traditional religious life, to a door where she could exit without being noticed, although she had seen many of her “disappeared” sisters sitting in wheelchairs in a doped-up state on her way into the psychiatrist's office.
This particular story has credibility as I know of men who have been candidates for the conciliar presbyterate who have been screened out in many dioceses and religious communities because they have been deemed to suffer from "rigidity."
As I have recounted on other occasions, the secular Talmudic psychologist who screened candidates for the Diocese of Rockville Centre for many years, the late Dr. Leonard Krinsky, came to some interesting conclusions following about me in May of 1979 following a psychological evaluation of me. Dr. Krinsky, now deceased, wrote that my concept of the priesthood as the sacerdos was preconciliar and self-centered, noting that that my desire to live a priestly life of prayer, penance, self-denial and mortification were "possible signs of masochism." Dr. Krinsky’s report concluded by saying that while I was “free of any psychopathology, intelligent, creative, and had the capacity for rich, interpersonal relationships,” I “lacked the sufficient flexibility needed to adapt to the changing circumstances of a postconciliar vocation.”' In other words, I was "too rigid" in my beliefs, something that many other vocations directors, both for dioceses and religious communities told me in the 1970s and 1980s.
I know of scores of men who were persecuted for their "conservatism" after their installation as presbyters in the counterfeit church of conciliarism.
One man, the late Reverend Anthony Dandry, who was a seminarian with me at Holy Apostles Seminary during the 1983-1984 academic year, told me that he had been ordered to seek a psychological evaluation because he wore a biretta and preached about the reality of hell “too much.” Tony Dandry may not have been a true priest. However, he was very devoted to Our Lady, believing that he had been “ordained” as a priest to save souls, not to make his parishioners feel comfortable. After seeking the advice of a true priest, the late Father Benedict Groeschel, within the conciliar structures, though, he arranged to get an evaluation from a psychologist not associated with his diocese, obtaining a clean bill of mental health thereafter.
Yes, good readers, stories related in the past on this site about the abuse of psychiatry and psychology in the former Union of Soviet Socialist Republics,are very relevant to what has been happening and what continues to happen to men and to women in the counterfeit church of conciliarism who are deemed to be “rigid” and thus “mentally deficient” by the “merciful” and “non-judgmental” agents of Antichrist, to say nothing of those who are helping to expose the moral rote within a false religious sect that is doctrinally, liturgically and pastorally corrupt.
Bergoglio has done this consistently for the past sixty-six months, two days now. Consistently. Obsessively. Compulsively. Even though he will turn eighty-two years of age in twenty-three days, on Sunday, December 16, 2018, the Third Sunday of Advent and the Commemoration Feast of Saint Eusebius and the Commemoration of the Third Sunday of Advent, the man is a complete juvenile delinquent who is unceasingly relentless in his quest to tear down and “make a mess” of whatever remaining vestiges of Catholicism exist in the counterfeit church of conciliarism.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio loves to disparage those he holds in contempt but his legendary sanctimony and self-righteousness come to the forefront when his orthodoxy is questioned and when his own record of protecting, enabling and promoting sodomite clergymen charged with abusing others is exposed:
September 12, 2018 (LifeSiteNews) – The world is currently focused on Pope Francis’ involvement in the affair of clerical sex abuser Cardinal Theodore McCarrick. However, the recent claims made by former apostolic nuncio Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò against Pope Francis in the matter are only the beginning of a long record of sex abuse cover-ups by Pope Francis and Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio that stretches back decades.
Although Francis famously claimed in his 2010 book On Heaven and Earth that sex abuse by clergy “has never occurred in my diocese” and “in the diocese it never happened to me,” the evidence to date indicates that Pope Francis is involved in multiple cover-ups of clerical sexual predators in South America, including his own archdiocese. His involvement in at least two of these cases has continued during his papacy.
In a 2017 documentary by the French news program Cash Investigation, six different individuals claiming to be sex abuse victims in the Archdiocese of Buenos Aires told reporters that they had been sexually abused by clergy there, and that they had written to Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio to inform him, but that he had never answered their complaints (see video below).
To this day Pope Francis has only expressed regret for one of these cover-ups, the Barros affair, following a massive public outcry in Chile over his strong-arm tactics against victims. The other cases continue to be hushed-up, ignored, and stonewalled.
The pope recently told sex abuse survivors in Ireland that those who cover up sexual abuse are “caca” (feces) and recently said that such priests should be removed and their accusers should be accompanied in the civil courts. However, Francis has done exactly the opposite, and continues to refuse to meet with victims he not only refused to accompany, but whom he sought for years to discredit with judges.
LifeSite is including links to its sources in the Spanish-speaking and French media regarding these cases so that the public can verify their veracity and to facilitate the reporting by other journalists on this topic.
The case of Julio César Grassi, convicted child sex abuser defended by Bergoglio
Perhaps the most egregious case of obstruction, stonewalling, and negligence regarding a clerical child sex abuser on the part of Jorge Bergoglio was that of Julio César Grassi, a priest famous throughout Argentina for his work with poor and orphan children, and who became the subject of numerous accusations by teen residents of his facilities, which led to his conviction for sex abuse of a minor in 2013 as well as other charges and a sentence of more than 15 years in prison.
While refusing to speak to Grassi’s victims, Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio engineered a campaign to discredit the victims and to influence the judges in the case, which may have resulted in some of the charges being dismissed. Despite these efforts, Grassi was convicted in the case of one victim who was able to identify hidden marks and other characteristics of Grassi’s body, and his conviction has been upheld by multiple appeals courts, including a final ruling by the Supreme Court of Argentina in March of 2016. Nonetheless, Pope Francis continues to allow Grassi to function as a priest. Despite ongoing requests, Francis has not yet met with victims nor apologized to them.
Fr. Julio Cesar Grassi is a priest of the Diocese of Morón, which was under Bergoglio’s metropolitan authority as Archbishop of Buenos Aires. There Grassi personally oversaw a residential facility housing approximately 400 children. The priest’s efforts to raise money for his “Happy Children Foundation” (Fundación Felices los Niños), which managed seventeen facilities throughout the country for over six thousand children, made him a national celebrity and generated the equivalent of millions of dollars in donations annually.
Grassi’s image as a crusader for a humanitarian cause made him a subject of national pride and gave him immense public credibility, as he forged close relationships with some of the wealthiest and most powerful figures in Argentinean society. By the late 1990s he had become a priest celebrity who seemed untouchable.
However, Grassi’s charitable empire began to collapse in 2002 when a series of investigative reports in the Argentinean media revealed a total of five accusations against him of sexual abuse from former residents of his care facilities, some of which had been on file with the police for two years. The alleged victims said that Grassi had made attempts to sexually seduce them and had performed perverse sexual acts on them. The television program Telenoche Investiga, which first reported the case, reported that Grassi also had been accused of sexual predation against seminarians as vice rector of a seminary in 1997. The country was riveted by the claims and Argentineans were divided over the likelihood of their veracity.
As a result of the media investigations, Grassi was soon prosecuted for over a dozen charges of sexual abuse of three of the purported victims. What followed was a 15-year saga in the courts of Argentina, in which Grassi and his team of over twenty high-power attorneys repeatedly attempted to intimidate and discredit Grassi’s accusers.
“Gabriel,” the victim whose testimony resulted in Grassi’s conviction, says that the harassment against him and attempts to steal evidence from him became so strong that he had to be enrolled in a witness protection program. His story is corroboratedby his psychiatrist and advocate, Enrique Stola, who has stated repeatedly to the press that he himself was threatened and that his house had been entered multiple times by people who had beaten him over his involvement in the case.
One of Grassi’s attorneys, Miguel Angel Pierri, was jailed twice after having falsely portrayed himself as a lawyer for one of the purported victims for the purpose of taking the victim to a court and pressuring him to retract his testimony. The “retraction” was later thrown out by the court when the deception was discovered.
To this show of force by the powerful Grassi was added the clout of the four-member Executive Committee of the Argentine Episcopal Conference, including Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio as the conference’s Second Vice President, which sought to portray Grassi’s prosecution as an anti-Catholic conspiracy, a line similar to the one taken by Grassi’s legal team.
In a thinly-veiled reference to the Grassi case, the episcopal conference’s executive committee claimed it was “astounded by the persistence of attacks which, in our day, seek to smear the image of the Church.” While admitting that priests are capable of sinning and expressing a desire to reach the truth, the committee added, “It may be that the hidden side of this campaign is the desire for the Church to lose its trust that society places in it, or for it to cease to expound upon the moral and social consequences of its principles.”
It was this conspiracy-theory approach to the case that Cardinal Bergoglio would maintain after being elected President of the Argentinean Episcopal Conference in 2005, despite the mounting evidence and repeated convictions of Grassi as the years wore on.
Bergoglio’s stealth campaign against Grassi’s victims
Bergoglio was not satisfied, however, with vague accusations of ulterior motives behind the prosecution. While it appears that neither Bergoglio nor the Bishop of Morón undertook a canonical investigation of Grassi, and Bergoglio ignored requests by the victims to discuss their accusations with him, the Cardinal Archbishop of Buenos Aires began a stealth campaign to discredit the victims with the judges in the case and secure a verdict of innocence.
Bergoglio’s effort to prevent the conviction of Grassi went so far as to include the commission of a series of four books devoted to casting doubt on the purported victims’ testimonies and attacking the victims themselves. The books were produced for Bergoglio and the Argentinean Episcopal Conference by the eminent jurist Marcelo Sancinetti. The series was entitled, “Studies on the ‘Grassi case,’” and filled more than 2,600 pages.
The books seek to discredit Grassi’s purported victims, openly calling them “false accusers” and even implying that they are projecting their own homosexual desires onto Grassi. Echoing Grassi’s arguments and those of the Argentine Episcopal Conference, they theorize that the prosecution of Grassi has arisen out of a conspiracy against his “Happy Children Foundation” by several media outlets who were seeking to destroy the organization. In an epilogue Sancinetti goes so far as to compare Grassi to the prophet Daniel placed in a den of lions. (Bergoglio's Long Recod of Cover-Ups and Obstruction of Abuse Cases .)
Mirror, mirror on the wall, Jorge Mario Bergoglio is the biggest clerical bully of them all, which is why he must seek to demonize those who expose the protection of clerical predators and why he must be terrified of the information that will be uncovered by Roman Catholic Faithful, Inc., which has ended a nine year period of dormancy to resume its work of rooting out the nest of homosexuals in the conciliar clergy (see https://rcf.org/.)
As a textbook revolutionary, Bergoglio and his ilk within the counterfeit church of conciliaism have had to agitate the masses into believing that the “past” was bad and that they are providing for a future that relies upon supposedly “simpler” and “purer” means to achieve justice and equity for all. This is what Pope Pius VI had to about the “simpler” and “purer” vision of the Catholics who masked their Calvinism under the guise of Jansenism:
Obscuring of Truths in the Church [From the Decree de Grat., sec. I]
1. The proposition, which asserts "that in these later times there has been spread a general obscuring of the more important truths pertaining to religion, which are the basis of faith and of the moral teachings of Jesus Christ,"—heretical.
The Power Attributed to the Community of the Church, in Order That by This the Power May Be Communicated to the Pastors
2. The proposition which states "that power has been given by God to the Church, that it might be communicated to the pastors who are its ministers for the salvation of souls"; if thus understood that the power of ecclesiastical ministry and of rule is derived from the COMMUNITY of the faithful to the pastors,—heretical.
The Name Ministerial Head Attributed to the Roman Pontiff
3. In addition, the proposition which states "that the Roman Pontiff is the ministerial head," if it is so explained that the Roman Pontiff does not receive from Christ in the person of blessed Peter, but from the Church, the power of ministry, which as successor of Peter, true vicar of Christ and head of the whole Church he possesses in the universal Church,—heretical.'
The Power of the Church for the Establishing and the Sanctioning of Exterior Discipline
4. The proposition affirming, "that it would be a misuse of the authority of the Church, when she transfers that authority beyond the limits of doctrine and of morals, and extends it to exterior matters, and demands by force that which depends on persuasion and love"; and then also, "that it pertains to it much less, to demand by force exterior obedience to its decrees"; in so far as by those undefined words, "extends to exterior matters," the proposition censures as an abuse of the authority of the Church the use of its power received from God, which the apostles themselves used in establishing and sanctioning exterior discipline—heretical.
5. In that part in which the proposition insinuates that the Church "does not have authority to demand obedience to its decrees otherwise than by means which depend on persuasion; in so far as it intends that the Church has not conferred on it by God the power, not only of directing by counsel and persuasion, but also of ordering by laws, and of constraining and forcing the inconstant and stubborn by exterior judgment and salutary punishments" leading toward a system condemned elsewhere as heretical.. . . .
Calumnies Against Some Decisions in the Matter of Faith Which Have Come Down from Several Centuries
12. The assertions of the synod, accepted as a whole concerning decisions in the matter of faith which have come down from several centuries, which it represents as decrees originating from one particular church or from a few pastors, unsupported by sufficient authority, formulated for the corruption of the purity of faith and for causing disturbance, introduced by violence, from which wounds, still too recent, have been inflicted,—false, deceitful, rash, scandalous, injurious to the Roman Pontiffs and the Church, derogatory to the obedience due to the Apostolic Constitutions, schismatic, dangerous, at least erroneous.
The So-called Peace of Clement IX
13. The proposition reported among the acts of the synod, which intimates that Clement IX restored peace to the Church by the approval of the distinction of right and deed in the subscription to the formulary written by Alexander VII (see n. 1ogg),—false, rash, injurious to Clement IX.
14. In so far as it approves that distinction by extolling its supporters with praise and by berating their opponents,—rash, pernicious, injurious to the Supreme Pontiffs, fostering schism and heresy.
The Composition of the Body of the Church
15. The doctrine which proposes that the Church "must be considered as one mystical body composed of Christ, the head, and the faithful, who are its members through an ineffable union, by which in a marvelous way we become with Him one sole priest, one sole victim, one sole perfect adorer of God the Father, in spirit and in truth," under-stood in this sense, that no one belongs to the body of the Church except the faithful, who are perfect adorers in spirit and in truth,—heretical. (Pope Pius VI, Auctorem Fidei, August 28, 1794.)
One can see here a direct papal condemnation of the entire spirit and ethos of conciliarism. Pope Pius VI's Auctorem Fidei condemned, as you can see, the very cornerstones of conciliarism’s desire to “spread the Faith” without reproving heretics in the name of showing “love and compassion.” In other words, Pope Pius VI's Auctorem Fidei show Angelo Roncalli/John XXIII's “opening address” to the "Second" Vatican Council, October 11, 1962, the Feast of the Divine Maternity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, to have been one gigantic exercise in Jansenism.
Bergoglio and his ilk are continuing the work of their revolutionary predecessors in the false sect of conciliarism by seeking to eradicate all vestiges of the past in the name of “novelty" and “innovation” as they create “new structures” that merely give new names to the sect’s failed programs of the past nearly sixty years.
Look, the entirety of the conciliar agenda, including its principal means of indoctrination, namely, the Protestant and Judeo-Masonic Novus Ordo service, has been imposed by bullies who used intimidation and even denunciations of "reactionary" parishioners from the pulpit to prevent any return to make sure that the false Church that flowed from the 'Second' Vatican Council was here to stay.
As will be noted earlier in this commentary, the conciliar revolutionaries sought to eliminate all opposition to their schemes among priests and consecrated religious, and they were brutal in so doing. We will never know the numbers of those priests and religious who were institutionalized and or sent to an early grave by the conciliar revolutionaries’ relentless effort to demonize, demonize, break and silence them. This is why anyone celebrating the impending departure of Donna Whirl in the Archdiocese of Washington, D.C., ought to consider the fact their “Pope Francis” is not going to be appointing, say, “Archbishop” Charles H. Chaput, O.F.M., Cap. to replace the disgraced member of the lavender collective and full-time supporter of pro-abortion, statist and pro-pervert politicians. Jorge will appoint another clone of Jorge.
It can never be stated forcefully enough, however, that the conciliar “popes” have been agents of revolutions against the Sacred Deposit of Faith and thus against God Himself and both the eternal and temporal good of souls. Perversity in and of itself does not prove apostasy, but making excuses for it and/or disparaging its gravity is a sign of a loss of the sense of sin and thus of the Holy Faith, which the conciliar revolutionaries either lost years ago or, in all many cases among the younger of them, never possessed. Men who make war upon the nature of dogmatic truth have declared war against the very immutable nature of God Himself. After that, of course, the Ten Commandments become a means of "dialogue" and not immutable laws that are inscribed on the very flesh of human hearts.
It is only by the graces won for us by Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ on the wood of the Holy Cross that are sent to us through the loving hands of Our Lady, she who is the Mediatrix of All Graces, that those of us who have embraced the truth about the state of the Church Militant on the face of this earth in this time of apostasy and betrayal have done so and can abide in it without wavering, without compromise and without abandoning our own Via Dolorosa for the sake of the “fellowship” and respect of estranged family members, friends, benefactors, colleagues or neighbors. This is why we must keep ever close to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, especially, if possible, by means of Eucharistic piety and by praying as many Rosaries each day as our state-in-life permits.
We are eyewitnesses to apostasy, which is why we need the help of Our Lady, especially through her Most Holy Rosary, now more than ever before,
Offer all of the sufferings of the moment to the Throne of the Most Blessed Trinity as the consecrated slave of Christ the King through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart Mary, whose triumph will be manifest when will least expect it.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon!
Viva Cristo Rey! Vivat Christus Rex!
