As I noted in the last original article that was published on Sunday, September 14, 2014, the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross and the Commemoration of the Fourteenth Sunday after Pentecost and the Commemoration of the Fourteenth Sunday after Pentecost, Life on the Outside of the Bergoglio Bubble, the work that I am doing now teaching four sections of American Government as an adjunct professor leaves me almost no time for writing new articles for this site. Don’t worry, this probably won’t last very long.
Yes, I try to keep up with the goings on in the fantasy world of nonstop apostasy that is the counterfeit church of conciliarism under its current general director, First Citizen of the World Jorge Mario Bergoglio. However, my principal responsibility now is attend to my teaching with as much diligence as I can to help my students to learn the material. In my “spare” time, you see, I have been writing what is turning into a miniature textbook on American Government. Although I cannot use Conversion in Reverse, which received a most unexpected and very generous review from Mr. Frank Rega, the author of Saint Francis of Assisi and the Conversion of the Muslims (see Conversion in Reverse), the project in which I am engrossed at this time does make it pretty clear that the social order of the present day is founded on, shall we say, less sure footing than that of the Middle Ages.
Even though I would like to keep up with work for this site, there is really little need for me to do so. Everything going on right now as the bottom falls out of the looney bin that is the One World Ecumenical Church of Apostasy is just an accelerated recycling of old revolutionary clichés and canards that have been bandied about ever since Giovanni Montini/Paul the Sick (just twenty days now until his “beatification,” remember?). There is absolutely no aspect of the recent insanity that has been commented upon on this site, no matter where it has been situated in cyberspace, at length, indeed, ad nauseam.
The “extraordinary synod on the family”?
Been there done, that (see Always Asking All The Wrong Questions, part one, Always Asking All the Wrong Questions, part two, Jorge Cooks the Books, Going the Way of All Heretical Sects, The Rubicon Was Crossed Fifty Years Ago, part one and A New Sense for a New Faith, part two).
Blase Cupich, the new Joseph Bernardin in Chicago?
Got him covered as well.
This is what I wrote in 2013:
The conciliar "bishop" of Spokane, Washington, Blase Cupich, made it pretty clear the "fight," such as it pretended to be, against ObamaCare is over as he spoke after the election of Joseph Kurtz and Daniel "Cardinal" DiNardo, the conciliar "archbishop" of Galveston-Houston, yesterday, Tuesday, November 12, 2013, the Feast of Pope Saint Martin I:
Archbishop Blase J. Cupich of Spokane, Wash., said in an interview after the vote on Tuesday:
“The nuncio said the Holy Father wants bishops to have a keen pastoral sensitivity, shepherds who know the smell of the sheep. That’s a nice metaphor to use.
“Pope Francis doesn’t want cultural warriors, he doesn’t want ideologues,” he said. “That’s the new paradigm for us, and it’s making many of us think.” (Bishops Select Two Leaders Who Reflect New Tone Set by Argentine Apostate. See also Professional Courtesy.)
Hey, I even went to “Mass” with Blase Cupich at Saint Robert Bellarmine Church in Omaha, Nebraska, back in July of 1995 when I was on a speaking tour of the country. No time to give you the details now, however.
News about the possible “canonization” of the chief proponent of the Americanist heresy that was one of the principal building blocks of Dignitatis Humane, and Gaudium et Spes, December 7, 1965?
Please do not weary me. See From John Carrolll To James Gibbons To Timothy Dolan among, say, hundreds of hundreds of other articles, to say nothing of, you got it, Volume One of Conversion in Reverse: How the Ethos of Americanism Converted Catholics.
Timothy Dolan being the grand marshal in the first “inclusive” Saint Patrick’s Day Parade? '
Well, there’s nothing more to say about this clown than was said last in Vulgar-Tongued Man in Scarlet.
Piereo Marini going back to be the head of the counterfeit church of conciliarism's worldwide liturgical planning committee?
Well, there is no time to give you anything else.
Suffice it to say that I do hope to be putting out another print-on-demand book that reviews the theological closeness between Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI and Jorge Mario Bergoglio. Despite differences around the margins on some subjects and distinctly different styles and emphases, there is no space of substance between these two Modernists. They are, at the very least, closely related ideological cousins.
All of this having been noted and needing to keep this as brief as possible, I did see a post on the Novus Ordo Watch Wire blog that will serve as the introduction to a reminder that George Bergoglio does squat about the Catholic Faith, and he could care less about the squat!
The following clip has recently been making the rounds. It is a brief excerpt from a video made in 2013 when Francis visited Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, for World Youth Day. In it, he declares that it is not important to him whether someone lacking food and education receives a Catholic, Protestant, Orthodox, or Jewish education, as long as he is fed and gets educated. We provide an English translation and a link to the full interview below.
The entire interview, which was broadcast on Brazilian television at the time, can be watched at this link (with English subtitles); the so-called Catholic News Agency has a summary of the conversation posted here. The part excerpted in the video above occurs at the very end of the interview. Let’s take a closer look at what Francis says (note in particular the words underlined):
I think we need to foster a culture of encounter all around the world… all around the world, where everyone feels the need to give to mankind the ethical values that humanity needs and to defend this human reality.
In this regard, I think it’s important that we all work for each other, to eradicate egoism… work for each other according to the values of one’s own faith. Each faith has its own beliefs, but according to the values of one’s own faith, work for the other people. Let’s all get together to work for the others.
If there is a child that is hungry and has no education, what should matter to us is that he gets food and education. I don’t care if this education is given by Catholics, Protestants, Orthodox or Jews. What matters is that this child receives an education and ceases to be hungry. We all have to agree on that.
Nowadays the urgency is such that we cannot fight among ourselves at the expense of the other people.
First we have to work for our neighbor, and then we can have discussions about higher principles where each one of us expresses the reasons of our faiths, trying to reach mutual understanding.
But, especially nowadays, [helping our] neighbor is more urgent. Come out of one’s self to solve the great problems of the world.
I believe that religions... the many confessions — as I prefer to call them — cannot have peace of mind while there is a single child dying of starvation, a single child without education, a single young or old person without health care.
However, it is true that the purpose of religion — of the many confessions — is not charity, but at least in our Catholic faith, in our Christian faith, we are going to be judged by these works of mercy.
The humanist indifferentism Francis unashamedly displays here is breathtaking. It is very apparent that the man sees Catholicism as simply one religion among many, one which he “believes in” and “prefers” perhaps (wink, wink), but one that objectively has no greater status or value than any other religion. Indeed, he encourages people to “work for each other according to the values of one’s own faith”, which “has its own beliefs”. (See Novus Ordo Watch Wire.)
It is with respect to this that I have just a few things to add.
First, the only kind of true education is Catholic education. None other.
This is what Pope Pius XI wrote in Divini Illius Magistri, December 31, 1929:
It is therefore as important to make no mistake in education, as it is to make no mistake in the pursuit of the last end, with which the whole work of education is intimately and necessarily connected. In fact, since education consists essentially in preparing man for what he must be and for what he must do here below, in order to attain the sublime end for which he was created, it is clear that there can be no true education which is not wholly directed to man's last end, and that in the present order of Providence, since God has revealed Himself to us in the Person of His Only Begotten Son, who alone is "the way, the truth and the life," there can be no ideally perfect education which is not Christian education.
8. From this we see the supreme importance of Christian education, not merely for each individual, but for families and for the whole of human society, whose perfection comes from the perfection of the elements that compose it. From these same principles, the excellence, we may well call it the unsurpassed excellence, of the work of Christian education becomes manifest and clear; for after all it aims at securing the Supreme Good, that is, God, for the souls of those who are being educated, and the maximum of well-being possible here below for human society. And this it does as efficaciously as man is capable of doing it, namely by cooperating with God in the perfecting of individuals and of society, in as much as education makes upon the soul the first, the most powerful and lasting impression for life according to the well-known saying of the Wise Man, "A young man according to his way, even when he is old, he will not depart from it." With good reason therefore did St. John Chrysostom say, "What greater work is there than training the mind and forming the habits of the young?"
9. But nothing discloses to us the supernatural beauty and excellence of the work of Christian education better than the sublime expression of love of our Blessed Lord, identifying Himself with children, "Whosoever shall receive one such child as this in my name, receiveth me."
10. Now in order that no mistake be made in this work of utmost importance, and in order to conduct it in the best manner possible with the help of God's grace, it is necessary to have a clear and definite idea of Christian education in its essential aspects, viz., who has the mission to educate, who are the subjects to be educated, what are the necessary accompanying circumstances, what is the end and object proper to Christian education according to God's established order in the economy of His Divine Providence. (Pope Pius XI, Divini Illius Magistri, December 31, 1929.)
Our true popes, of course, taught us that the use of the word Christian is synonymous with Catholic as Christianity has been one mother and teacher, the Catholic Church, she who is alone the repository of the whole of Divine Revelation, which she teaches infallibly and safeguards eternally in name of her Divine Founder, Invisible Head and Mystical Spouse.
Pope Pius XI went on to explain the true end of Christian education is not merely temporal “improvement.” The true end to advance man’s knowledge of his supernatural destiny and how to pursue it as he uses his God-given talents in the midst of the world:
94. The proper and immediate end of Christian education is to cooperate with divine grace in forming the true and perfect Christian, that is, to form Christ Himself in those regenerated by Baptism, according to the emphatic expression of the Apostle: "My little children, of whom I am in labor again, until Christ be formed in you." For the true Christian must live a supernatural life in Christ: "Christ who is your life," and display it in all his actions: "That the life also of Jesus may be made manifest in our mortal flesh."
95. For precisely this reason, Christian education takes in the whole aggregate of human life, physical and spiritual, intellectual and moral, individual, domestic and social, not with a view of reducing it in any way, but in order to elevate, regulate and perfect it, in accordance with the example and teaching of Christ.
96. Hence the true Christian, product of Christian education, is the supernatural man who thinks, judges and acts constantly and consistently in accordance with right reason illumined by the supernatural light of the example and teaching of Christ; in other words, to use the current term, the true and finished man of character. For, it is not every kind of consistency and firmness of conduct based on subjective principles that makes true character, but only constancy in following the eternal principles of justice, as is admitted even by the pagan poet when he praises as one and the same "the man who is just and firm of purpose." And on the other hand, there cannot be full justice except in giving to God what is due to God, as the true Christian does. (. (Pope Pius XI, Divini Illius Magistri, December 31, 1929.)
Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s mind is not illumined by the supernatural light of the example and teaching of Christ. His mind is informed by the lies of Protestantism, Judeo-Masonry and Modernism, which, as Pope Saint Pius X explained in Pascendi Dominici Gregis, September 8, 1907, is the synthesis of all heresies, including those of Protestantism and Judeo-Masonry.
Pope Gregory XVI warned us of the dangers of religious indifferentism in Mirari Vos, August 15, 1832, as did, among so many others, Pope Pius IX in The Syllabus of Errors, December 8, 1864, and Pope Leo XIII in Immortale Dei, November 1, 1885:
13. Now We consider another abundant source of the evils with which the Church is afflicted at present: indifferentism. This perverse opinion is spread on all sides by the fraud of the wicked who claim that it is possible to obtain the eternal salvation of the soul by the profession of any kind of religion, as long as morality is maintained. Surely, in so clear a matter, you will drive this deadly error far from the people committed to your care. With the admonition of the apostle that "there is one God, one faith, one baptism" may those fear who contrive the notion that the safe harbor of salvation is open to persons of any religion whatever. They should consider the testimony of Christ Himself that "those who are not with Christ are against Him," and that they disperse unhappily who do not gather with Him. Therefore "without a doubt, they will perish forever, unless they hold the Catholic faith whole and inviolate." Let them hear Jerome who, while the Church was torn into three parts by schism, tells us that whenever someone tried to persuade him to join his group he always exclaimed: "He who is for the See of Peter is for me." A schismatic flatters himself falsely if he asserts that he, too, has been washed in the waters of regeneration. Indeed Augustine would reply to such a man: "The branch has the same form when it has been cut off from the vine; but of what profit for it is the form, if it does not live from the root?"
14. This shameful font of indifferentism gives rise to that absurd and erroneous proposition which claims that liberty of conscience must be maintained for everyone. It spreads ruin in sacred and civil affairs, though some repeat over and over again with the greatest impudence that some advantage accrues to religion from it. "But the death of the soul is worse than freedom of error," as Augustine was wont to say. When all restraints are removed by which men are kept on the narrow path of truth, their nature, which is already inclined to evil, propels them to ruin. Then truly "the bottomless pit" is open from which John saw smoke ascending which obscured the sun, and out of which locusts flew forth to devastate the earth. Thence comes transformation of minds, corruption of youths, contempt of sacred things and holy laws -- in other words, a pestilence more deadly to the state than any other. Experience shows, even from earliest times, that cities renowned for wealth, dominion, and glory perished as a result of this single evil, namely immoderate freedom of opinion, license of free speech, and desire for novelty.
15. Here We must include that harmful and never sufficiently denounced freedom to publish any writings whatever and disseminate them to the people, which some dare to demand and promote with so great a clamor. We are horrified to see what monstrous doctrines and prodigious errors are disseminated far and wide in countless books, pamphlets, and other writings which, though small in weight, are very great in malice. We are in tears at the abuse which proceeds from them over the face of the earth. Some are so carried away that they contentiously assert that the flock of errors arising from them is sufficiently compensated by the publication of some book which defends religion and truth. Every law condemns deliberately doing evil simply because there is some hope that good may result. Is there any sane man who would say poison ought to be distributed, sold publicly, stored, and even drunk because some antidote is available and those who use it may be snatched from death again and again? (Pope Gregory XVI, Mirari Vos, August 15, 1832.)
15. Every man is free to embrace and profess that religion which, guided by the light of reason, he shall consider true. -- Allocution "Maxima quidem," June 9, 1862; Damnatio "Multiplices inter," June 10, 1851.
16. Man may, in the observance of any religion whatever, find the way of eternal salvation, and arrive at eternal salvation. -- Encyclical "Qui pluribus," Nov. 9, 1846.
17. Good hope at least is to be entertained of the eternal salvation of all those who are not at all in the true Church of Christ. -- Encyclical "Quanto conficiamur," Aug. 10, 1863, etc.
18. Protestantism is nothing more than another form of the same true Christian religion, in which form it is given to please God equally as in the Catholic Church. -- Encyclical "Noscitis," Dec. 8, 1849. (Pope Pius IX, The Syllabus of Errors, December 8, 1864.)
To hold, therefore, that there is no difference in matters of religion between forms that are unlike each other, and even contrary to each other, most clearly leads in the end to the rejection of all religion in both theory and practice. And this is the same thing as atheism, however it may differ from it in name. Men who really believe in the existence of God must, in order to be consistent with themselves and to avoid absurd conclusions, understand that differing modes of divine worship involving dissimilarity and conflict even on most important points cannot all be equally probable, equally good, and equally acceptable to God. (Pope Leo XIII, Immortale Dei, November 1, 1885.)
Then again, Bergoglio believes that silly things like doctrines do not matter to God and thus should not matter to us. He is pure of pure viscera, pure emotion, pure sentimentality. He is, of course, a egomaniacal revolutionary whose adolescent manner of attack that which is hates, Catholicism, is transparent to anyone who has a trace of the sensus Catholicus.
It used to be the case that even Catholic schoolchildren were taught that false religions are offensive to God.
See, for example, the following excerpt from Father Joseph Dehabre’s A Complete Catechism of the Catholic Religion:
6. Will any faith save us?
No; only the true faith, which Christ our Lord has taught, will save us.
‘He that believeth in the Son hath life everlasting; but he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him’ (John iii. 36.)
7. Why will that faith only which Christ has taught save us?
Because by this faith alone and by no other, we are made partakers of Christ, and without Christ there is no salvation.
‘For there is no other name under Heaven given to men whereby we must be saved’ (Acts iv. 12).
8. Is it, then, a sin to say that it does not matter what faith we profess?
Yes, it is a grievous sin to say so, or even only to think so; for we despise God buy it, who has given us the one true faith, and therefore, has sent his Only Begotten Son in the world (Short Hist. of Revealed Religion, Concl. Remd. 1.)
If it did not matter what we believe, it would not have been necessary for God to reveal a religion, and our ancestors might all have remained heathens or Jews. But ‘this is the judgment’, says Jesus Christ: ‘because the light is come into the world, and me love darkness rather than the light’ (John iii. 19); i.e., because many were obstinate in their unbelief, although they saw the truth, or could have seen it, provided they had been sincere.
9. But is it not written: ‘He that feareth God, and worketh justice, is acceptable to Him? (Acts x. 35).
Yes; but he who fears God does also believe all that He has revealed, as Cornelius did (Acts x.). He, on the contrary, who does not believe all that God has revealed does not fear Him either, but rejects His word, and denies His veracity. (Father Joseph Dehabre, S.J., A Complete Catechism of The Catholic Religion, translated from the German by the Reverend Father John Fander and edited by The Reverend James Fox, D.D., and the Reverend Thomas McMillan, C.S.P. New York: Schwartz, Kirwin & Fauss, 1912, pp.74-75.)
Jorge Mario Bergoglio depises God and denies His veracity.
There is nothing more left to say, especially as I have no time to say anymore.
This is enough.
Pray our Rosaries.
Keep close to Our Lady as the consecrated slaves of her Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, through her Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart.
Cling to Our Lady. Cling to her. She stands at the foot of our own individual crosses in this time of apostasy and betrayal just as she stood so valiantly beneath the Cross of her Divine Son as she saw our sins ravage His Sacred Humanity as He paid the price for our redemption by shedding every single drop of His Most Precious Blood.
Lift high the Cross!
