Everything about the false conciliar religion has been premised upon false ecumenism, which has spawned a cottage industry of "inter-religious" "prayer" services, workshops, conferences, “dialogue” sessions, and heretical “joint agreements.”
Indeed, Karol Josef Wotyla/Saint John Paul II made a commitment to the false ecumenism that had been initiated by Giovanni Battista Enrico Antonio Maria/Blessed Paul VI a central feature of his 9,666 day tenure as the universal public face of apostasy, starting with the address that he gave to the "cardinals" on Tuesday, October 17, 1978:
First of all, we wish to point out the unceasing importance of the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council, and we accept the definite duty of assiduously bringing it into effect. Indeed, is not that universal Council a kind of milestone as it were, an event of the utmost importance in the almost two thousand year history of the Church, and consequently in the religious and cultural history of the world.
However, as the Council is not limited to the documents alone, neither is it completed by the ways applying it which were devised in these post-conciliar years. Therefore we rightly consider that we are bound by the primary duty of most diligently furthering the implementation of the decrees and directive norms of that same Universal Synod. This indeed we shall do in a way that is at once prudent and stimulating. We shall strive, in particular, that first of all an appropriate mentality may flourish. Namely, it is necessary that, above all, outlooks must be at one with the Council so that in practice those things may be done that were ordered by it, and that those things which lie hidden in it or—as is usually said—are "implicit" may become explicit in the light of the experiments made since then and the demands of changing circumstances. Briefly, it is necessary that the fertile seeds which the Fathers of the Ecumenical Synod, nourished by the word of God, sowed in good ground (cf. Mt 13: 8, 23)—that is, the important teachings and pastoral deliberations should be brought to maturity in that way which is characteristic of movement and life. (First Urbi et Orbi Radio message, October 17, 1978.)
Karol Josef Wojtyla/John Paul II sure found "those things which lie hidden in" the "Second" Vatican Council" as he made manifestly explicit what he believed was "implicit" in his vaunted "Second" Vatican Council, fooling the sappy likes of me by throwing some conciliar fairy dust in our eyes as he talked about getting priests back in their clerical garb and consecrated religious sisters back into their habits and demanding doctrinal orthodoxy from theologians even though he was not doctrinally orthodox and let most of the ultra-progressive conciliar revolutionaries remain in perfectly good standing as sons and daughters of what he claimed was the Catholic Church.
What those of us who were fighting what we thought was the “good fight” of the Catholic Faith at this time did not realize—and what so many within the structures of the false conciliar sect have yet to recognize—is that is as impossible for concilairism to protect the Sacred Deposit of Faith as it is based upon false principles of Protestantism and Judeo-Masonry. It cannot do anything but spread error and harm souls. We are merely witnessing the manifestation of the inherent degeneracy of conciliarism's false premises.
One need not document all the ways that Wojytla/John Paul II promoted false ecumenism as it has been done so on this site many times and in countless other places. The man of the Assisi "World Day of Peace" travesties who praised every false religion under the sun, thereby violating the First and Second Commandments repeatedly, institutionalized religious indifferetism to such an extent that even many Catholics within the conciliar structures who run "pro-life" websites and blogs wax glowingly about "other Christians" as though there is any other religion than the true one, the Catholic Faith.
However, it might be useful to use the late apostate’s addresses on January 25, 2003, the Feast of the Conversion of Saint Paul the Apostle, on the occasion of the end of what is called “Christian Unity Week in the counterfeit church of conciliarism as neither the conciliar “popes” nor their partners in ecumaniacal crimes can celebrate the Chair of Unity Octave since the latter’s aim was to effect their ancestors’ unconditional conversion to the Catholic Church, outside of which there is no salvation and without which there can be no true social order.
The following is an excerpt of a “homily” delivered at the Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls before a group of fellow heretics composed of representatives of Protestant “ecclesial communities” and Orthodox churches:
1. "We have this treasure in earthen vessels" (2 Cor 4:7).
These words, taken from the Second Letter to the Corinthians, have been the guiding theme of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity which concludes today. They shed light on our meditation during this evening liturgy of the Feast of the Conversion of Saint Paul. The Apostle reminds us that we carry the "treasure" which Christ has given us in earthen vessels. All Christians are thus called to press forward on their earthly pilgrimage without letting themselves be overwhelmed by difficulties or afflictions (cf. Lumen Gentium, 8), in the certainty that they will overcome all obstacles thanks to the help and the power which come from on high.
With this conviction, I am happy to pray this evening together with you, beloved brothers and sisters of the Churches and Ecclesial Communities present in Rome, united by the one Baptism in the Lord Jesus Christ. I offer a heartfelt greeting to all of you. (Karol Josef Wojtyla/John Paul II "Homily," January 25, 2003.)
Brief Comment Number One:
United by one baptism?
Agreement and union of minds is the necessary foundation of this perfect concord amongst men, from which concurrence of wills and similarity of action are the natural results. Wherefore, in His divine wisdom, He ordained in His Church Unity of Faith; a virtue which is the first of those bonds which unite man to God, and whence we receive the name of the faithful - "one Lord, one faith, one baptism" (Eph. iv., 5). That is, as there is one Lord and one baptism, so should all Christians, without exception, have but one faith. And so the Apostle St. Paul not merely begs, but entreats and implores Christians to be all of the same mind, and to avoid difference of opinions: "I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no schisms amongst you, and that you be perfect in the same mind and in the same judgment" (I Cor. i., 10). Such passages certainly need no interpreter; they speak clearly enough for themselves. Besides, all who profess Christianity allow that there can be but one faith. It is of the greatest importance and indeed of absolute necessity, as to which many are deceived, that the nature and character of this unity should be recognized. And, as We have already stated, this is not to be ascertained by conjecture, but by the certain knowledge of what was done; that is by seeking for and ascertaining what kind of unity in faith has been commanded by Jesus Christ. (Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum, June 29, 1896.)
The true Faith is to be found only in the Catholic Church. The Orthodox churches and the Protestant sects, which are called “ecclesial communities” by the conciliar revolutionaries, are false. They are filled with false doctrines and false liturgical rites, each of which is inspired directly by the adversary himself.
Pope Pius XII reminded us that the only members of the Church of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ is the Catholic Church, none other:
Actually only those are to be included as members of the Church who have been baptized and profess the true faith, and who have not been so unfortunate as to separate themselves from the unity of the Body, or been excluded by legitimate authority for grave faults committed. "For in one spirit" says the Apostle, "were we all baptized into one Body, whether Jews or Gentiles, whether bond or free." As therefore in the true Christian community there is only one Body, one Spirit, one Lord, and one Baptism, so there can be only one faith. And therefore, if a man refuse to hear the Church, let him be considered - so the Lord commands - as a heathen and a publican. It follows that those who are divided in faith or government cannot be living in the unity of such a Body, nor can they be living the life of its one Divine Spirit. (Pope Pius XII, Mystici Corporis, June 29, 1943.)
Pope Pius XII’s firm reiteration of Catholic teaching was, of course, rejected by the Giovanni Battista Enrico Antonio Maria Montini/Paul VI and the Fathers of the “Second” Vatican Council when they voted to approve Lumen Gentium on November 21, 1964, the Feast of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which included the following phrase, whose insertion was suggested by a Lutheran “observer” to a council peritus, Father Joseph Alois Ratzinger:
This Church constituted and organized in the world as a society, subsists in the Catholic Church, which is governed by the successor of Peter and by the Bishops in communion with him, although many elements of sanctification and of truth are found outside of its visible structure. These elements, as gifts belonging to the Church of Christ, are forces impelling toward catholic unity. (Lumen Gentium, November 21, 1964.)
Despite all of the efforts made by defenders of all things conciliar to try to explain how the passage from Lumen Gentium above was not a contradiction of Pope Pius XII’s Mystici Corporis, it is nevertheless the case that Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict XVI’s “new ecclesiology” of “full communion” and “partial communion” received its official sanction in Lumen Gentium. The seeds were thus planted for a wider and more “generous” application of the “new ecclesiology that Ratzinger himself defended in an interview with the Frankfort Allgemeine newspaper on September 22, 2000, forty-seven days after the issuance of Dominus Iesus on August 6, 2000, the Feast of the Transfiguration of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Back to Wojtyla/John Paul II’s 2003 “homily” at the Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls:
It is my great desire that the Church of Rome, which Providence has entrusted with a unique "presidency in charity" (Ignatius of Antioch, Letter to the Romans, Introduction), may increasingly become a model of fraternal ecumenical relations. (Karol Josef Wojtyla/John Paul II "Homily," January 25, 2003.)
Brief Comment Number Two:
This was a total distortion and misrepresentation of Saint Ignatius of Antioch’s Letter to the Romans, which was principally an exhortation to the Romans to pray for his martyrdom and to refuse to save him from his fervent desire to shed his blood for Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
“Saint John Paul II” made it appear as though Saint Ignatius of Antioch, whose feast is celebrated annually on February 1, did not believe that the Church of Rome was the see established by our first pope, Saint Peter, to govern every church in the whole word until Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ’s Second Coming in glory on the Last Day and only “presided in charity, meaning honorifically.
Saint Ignatius was the second successor of Saint Peter as the Bishop of Antioch, and his epistle to the Romans was an exhortation to the Catholics in Rome to let him die as martyr in the Eternal City. Dom Prosper Gueranger, O.S.B., explained in The Liturgical Year that God’s Holy Providence had so arranged Saint Ignatius’s martyrdom to take place in Rome as a means of demonstrating the supremacy of the See of Saint Peter over the entire Church:
Two days more, and the happy season of Christmas will be over! This is the vigil and its termination, and lo! there comes to gladden us one of the grandest Martyrs of the year—Ignatius surnamed the Theophorus, the Bishop of Antioch. A venerable tradition tells us that this old man, who so generously confessed the faith before Trajan, was the child whom Jesus took into his arms, and showed to his Disciples as a model of that simplicity which we must all have if we would enter into the kingdom of heaven. Today he appears before us, standing near the Crib in which this same Jesus gives us his own divine lessons of humility and simplicity.
But, in this the Court of our Emmanuel, Ignatius stands near to Peter, the Feast of whose Chair we kept a few days since; for the Prince of the Apostles mad him his second successor in his first See of Antioch. From so honoured a position Ignatius derived that courage which made him resist a powerful Emperor even t his face, defy the wild beasts of the amphitheatre, and triumph by a glorious martyrdom. As if were to show the supremacy of the See of Rome, Divine Providence willed that he, with his chains upon him, should go to see Peter, and finish his course in the Holy City, and thus mingle his blood with that of the Apostles. Rome would have been imperfect without the glory of Ignatius’ martyrdom, which is the pride of her Coliseum, rich as it is with the blood of so many thousands of martyrs. (Dom Prosper Gueranger, O.S.B., The Liturgical Year, Christmas, Book II, pp. 456-457.)
“Saint John Paul II,” following the example of Giovanni Battista Enrico Antonio Maria/Paulus Infirmorum Inveniantur, did not hesitate to distort and corrupt the lives of the saints to make them perverted witnesses in behalf of conciliarism’s false premises, starting with false ecumenism itself. This is something, of course, that the Wojtyla/on Paul II’s two successors as the “president” of the counterfeit church of conciliarism, Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict XVI and Jorge Mario Bergoglio, have been more than up to this task of distorting salvation history and corrupting the teaching of the lives of the saints.
Well, before turning your attention to the currently presiding head of the counterfeit church of conciliarism’s own annual perversion of the Feast of the Conversion of Saint Paul the Apostle, perhaps it might be instructive to provide two more excepts from the late apostate from Poland’s “homily” of fifteen years ago to demonstrate that the names of the conciliar presidents may change, but the apostasy always remains the same:
2. As Christians, we know that we are called to bear witness before the world to the "glorious Gospel" which Christ has given to us (cf. 2 Cor 4:4). In his name, let us unite our efforts in order to be at the service of peace and reconciliation, justice and solidarity, especially at the side of the poor and the least of the earth.
In this context, I would like to recall the Day of Prayer for World Peace held in Assisi one year ago, on 24 January. That interreligious event sent a powerful message to the world: every authentically religious person is obliged to ask God for the gift of peace, with renewed determination to promote and build peace together with other believers. The theme of peace remains as urgent as ever. It makes particular demands on the followers of Christ, the Prince of Peace, and it represents a challenge and a commitment for the ecumenical movement.
3. In response to the one Spirit who guides the Church, we wish this evening to offer thanks to God for the many abundant fruits which he, the giver of every good gift, has lavished upon the path of ecumenism. In addition to the Assisi meeting, which saw the participation of high-level representatives of almost all the Churches and Ecclesial Communities of East and West, how can I fail to mention the visit to Rome last March of a Delegation from the Holy Synod of the Orthodox Church of Greece? In June I joined Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I in signing the Common Declaration on safeguarding the environment. In May I had the joy of visiting Patriarch Maxim of Bulgaria, and in October I was visited by Patriarch Teoctist of Romania, with whom I also signed a Common Declaration. Nor can I forget the visit of the Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr George Carey, at the conclusion of his mandate, my meetings with Ecumenical Delegations of Ecclesial Communities of the West, and the progress made by the various mixed Commissions of dialogue. (Karol Josef Wojtyla/John Paul II "Homily," January 25, 2003.)
Brief Comment Number Three:
Yes, Karol Josef Wojtyla/John Paul II wanted to use false ecumenism as a means of protecting the environment. Nothing really ever changes in the fantasy world of conciliarism, up to and including finding “common ground” with non-Catholics about the “environment.”
“Saint Paul II” used various of his “World Day of Prayer for Peace” messages to exhort Catholics to “protect creation,” and his successor, Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, said that it was necessary to protect “creation” in order to have “peace” in the world:
14. If you want to cultivate peace, protect creation. The quest for peace by people of good will surely would become easier if all acknowledge the indivisible relationship between God, human beings and the whole of creation. In the light of divine Revelation and in fidelity to the Church’s Tradition, Christians have their own contribution to make. They contemplate the cosmos and its marvels in light of the creative work of the Father and the redemptive work of Christ, who by his death and resurrection has reconciled with God “all things, whether on earth or in heaven” (Col 1:20). Christ, crucified and risen, has bestowed his Spirit of holiness upon mankind, to guide the course of history in anticipation of that day when, with the glorious return of the Saviour, there will be “new heavens and a new earth” (2 Pet 3:13), in which justice and peace will dwell for ever. Protecting the natural environment in order to build a world of peace is thus a duty incumbent upon each and all. It is an urgent challenge, one to be faced with renewed and concerted commitment; it is also a providential opportunity to hand down to coming generations the prospect of a better future for all. May this be clear to world leaders and to those at every level who are concerned for the future of humanity: the protection of creation and peacemaking are profoundly linked! For this reason, I invite all believers to raise a fervent prayer to God, the all-powerful Creator and the Father of mercies, so that all men and women may take to heart the urgent appeal: If you want to cultivate peace, protect creation. (Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, "World Day of Peace Message for 2010.)
While the paragraph that preceded the one cited contained proper qualifications about a moral equivalence between human beings and the created world, it was—and, of course, it remains—utter madness to believe that “protecting the natural environment in order to build a world of peace” is a duty “incumbent upon each and all.”
The peace of the Divine Redeemer, Christ the King, exists in the souls of men who at peace with Him by abiding in a state of Sanctifying Grace, which is to be found only in the Catholic Church, outside of which there can be no salvation and without which there can be no true social order.
Writing in his first encyclical letter, Ubi Arcano Dei Consilio, December 22, 1923, Pope Pius XI explained that Catholicism is the only foundation of true peace:
Because the Church is by divine institution the sole depository and interpreter of the ideals and teachings of Christ, she alone possesses in any complete and true sense the power effectively to combat that materialistic philosophy which has already done and, still threatens, such tremendous harm to the home and to the state. The Church alone can introduce into society and maintain therein the prestige of a true, sound spiritualism, the spiritualism of Christianity which both from the point of view of truth and of its practical value is quite superior to any exclusively philosophical theory. The Church is the teacher and an example of world good-will, for she is able to inculcate and develop in mankind the "true spirit of brotherly love" (St. Augustine, De Moribus Ecclesiae Catholicae, i, 30) and by raising the public estimation of the value and dignity of the individual's soul help thereby to lift us even unto God.
Finally, the Church is able to set both public and private life on the road to righteousness by demanding that everything and all men become obedient to God "Who beholdeth the heart," to His commands, to His laws, to His sanctions. If the teachings of the Church could only penetrate in some such manner as We have described the inner recesses of the consciences of mankind, be they rulers or be they subjects, all eventually would be so apprised of their personal and civic duties and their mutual responsibilities that in a short time "Christ would be all, and in all." (Colossians iii, 11)
Since the Church is the safe and sure guide to conscience, for to her safe-keeping alone there has been confided the doctrines and the promise of the assistance of Christ, she is able not only to bring about at the present hour a peace that is truly the peace of Christ, but can, better than any other agency which We know of, contribute greatly to the securing of the same peace for the future, to the making impossible of war in the future. For the Church teaches (she alone has been given by God the mandate and the right to teach with authority) that not only our acts as individuals but also as groups and as nations must conform to the eternal law of God. In fact, it is much more important that the acts of a nation follow God's law, since on the nation rests a much greater responsibility for the consequences of its acts than on the individual.
When, therefore, governments and nations follow in all their activities, whether they be national or international, the dictates of conscience grounded in the teachings, precepts, and example of Jesus Christ, and which are binding on each and every individual, then only can we have faith in one another's word and trust in the peaceful solution of the difficulties and controversies which may grow out of differences in point of view or from clash of interests. An attempt in this direction has already and is now being made; its results, however, are almost negligible and, especially so, as far as they can be said to affect those major questions which divide seriously and serve to arouse nations one against the other. No merely human institution of today can be as successful in devising a set of international laws which will be in harmony with world conditions as the Middle Ages were in the possession of that true League of Nations, Christianity. It cannot be denied that in the Middle Ages this law was often violated; still it always existed as an ideal, according to which one might judge the acts of nations, and a beacon light calling those who had lost their way back to the safe road.
There exists an institution able to safeguard the sanctity of the law of nations. This institution is a part of every nation; at the same time it is above all nations. She enjoys, too, the highest authority, the fullness of the teaching power of the Apostles. Such an institution is the Church of Christ. She alone is adapted to do this great work, for she is not only divinely commissioned to lead mankind, but moreover, because of her very make-up and the constitution which she possesses, by reason of her age-old traditions and her great prestige, which has not been lessened but has been greatly increased since the close of the War, cannot but succeed in such a venture where others assuredly will fail. (Pope Pius XI, Ubi Arcano Dei Consilio, December 23, 1922.)
The conciliar revolutionaries do not believe in a word of this, going so far as to use the “ecumenical movement” as the means for “religious leaders” to work together to “protect creation” as one of those multiple “keys” to world peace. (Benedict had so many “keys” to world peace that is key ring must have been bigger than the one carried by Captain Kangroo in the original opening of the late Bob Keeshan’s children’s television program. See 1958 Captian Kangaroo Opening Theme. For a photograph of the keys themselves when the key ring went up for auction five years ago, see Keys to the Treasure House)
The late Polish Heretic’s elegy of praise for his partners in ecumaniacal crime mirrors that of his two successors.
This is what Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict XVI said in 2012 at the Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls:
Our expectation of the visible unity of the Church must also be patient and trusting. Only in this frame of mind do our prayers and our daily commitment to Christian unity find their full meaning. The attitude of patient waiting does not mean passivity or resignation but rather a prompt and attentive response to every possibility of communion and brotherhood that the Lord gives us.
In this spiritual climate I would like to extend special greetings, first to Cardinal Monterisi, Archpriest of this Basilica, and to the Abbot and the community of Benedictine monks for hosting us. I greet Cardinal Koch, President of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, and all the co-workers of this Dicastery. I address my cordial and brotherly greetings to His Eminence Metropolitan Gennadios, Representative of the Ecumenical Patriarchate, and to Reverend Canon Richardson, Personal Representative in Rome of the Archbishop of Canterbury, and to all the Representatives of the various Churches and Ecclesial Communities gathered here this evening.
In addition, I am particularly glad to greet several members of the Working Group composed of spokespeople of the various Churches and Ecclesial Communities present in Poland, who prepared the booklets for the Week of Prayer this year. I would like to express my gratitude to them and my hope that they will continue on the way of reconciliation and fruitful collaboration. I am also pleased to greet the members of the Global Christian Forum who are in Rome in these days to reflect on increasing the number of participants in the ecumenical movement to include new members. Further, I greet the group of students from the Ecumenical Institute of Bossey of the World Council of Churches. (Ratzinger/Benedict January 25, 2012, "Homily" at the Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls.)
Different names, same apostasy, and every single bit of it is premised on the heresy that Christian unity does not exist and thus has been “achieved” by means of “dialogue” while each denomination goes about its own business of preaching false and corrupted versions of the Gospel of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
As the Antipope Emeritus, who turns ninety-one years of age on April 16, 2018, mentioned Kurt “Cardinal” Koch, this is as good a time as any to give a brief bit of attention to the Swiss ecumaniac’s recent exhortation for all Christians to be converted to false ecumenism:
To be effective evangelisers, the Catholic Church and other Christian churches must constantly undergo their own conversion to a stronger commitment to Christian unity, said Cardinal Kurt Koch, the Vatican’s chief ecumenist.
“So that the evangelising task can be carried out in a credible way, the Church itself continually needs a self-evangelisation that includes conversion to the ecumenical search for Christian unity,” the Swiss cardinal wrote in the Vatican newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano.
In preparation for the annual Week of Prayer for Christian Unity from January 18-25, Cardinal Koch’s article focused on the connection between mission and Christian unity, a connection that gave birth to the ecumenical movement among Protestants more than 100 years ago and one that the Catholic Church has acknowledged since the Second Vatican Council.
“Witness to the love of God, which is an integral and fundamental part of Christian identity, must be given in an ecumenical communion,” said Cardinal Koch, President of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity.
God sent His Son into the world to save human beings and gather them back into one family, he said. The Church, as a sacrament of unity, is called to work to re-establish its own unity and to draw others into the one family.
The Church, Cardinal Koch said, can be the “sacrament of salvation for the world only if it does not offer the world the deplorable spectacle of its own division.” (Apostate Koch Says That Christians Mut "Convert" to False Ecumenism.)
The lords of the counterfeit church of conciliarism are always in “search” of “truth,” “peace” and “unity.”
In this, of course, they must ignore the truth that Holy Mother Church is indeed one and that no one can find the peace of the Divine Redeemer.
As should go without saying, the entirety of the counterfeit church of conciliarism is premised upon a rejection and/or distortion of everything contained in the Sacred Deposit Faith as it is an instrument of Modernist perdition. Its “popes” and “bishops” have merely recycled the same Modernist propositions condemned by Pope Saint Pius X in Pascendi Dominici Gregis, September 8, 1907, and by Pope Pius XII in Humani Generis, August 12, 1950, when condemning the New Theology’s dressing up of Modernism in a different guise.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio, to borrow a phrase from “Saint Paul II,” is simply making explicit what was implicit in the false teaching of the “Second” Vatican Council, although the following excerpt from his most recent address to the ecumaniacs gathered four days ago at the Basilica of Saint Paul Outside the Walls demonstrates once again that there is little that is truly original in what this lay Jesuit revolutionary says about false ecumenism:
In this joyful conviction, I offer a cordial and fraternal greeting to His Eminence Metropolitan Gennadios, the representative of the Ecumenical Patriarch, to His Grace David Moxon, the personal representative in Rome of the Archbishop of Canterbury, and to all the representatives of the various Churches and Ecclesial Communions gathered here to celebrate the Feast of the Conversion of Saint Paul. I am also pleased to greet the members of the Joint Commission for Theological Dialogue between the Catholic Church and the Orthodox Churches, and I offer them my best wishes for the fruitfulness of the plenary session to be held in these coming days. I also greet the students from the Ecumenical Institute at Bossey, and the young recipients of study grants from by the Committee for Cultural Collaboration with the Orthodox Churches, centred in the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity.
Also present today are men and women religious from various Churches and Ecclesial Communities who have taken part in an ecumenical meeting organized by the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and for Societies of Apostolic Life, in conjunction with the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, to mark the Year for Consecrated Life. Religious life, as prophetic sign of the world to come, is called to offer in our time a witness to that communion in Christ which transcends all differences and finds expression in concrete gestures of acceptance and dialogue. The pursuit of Christian unity cannot be the sole prerogative of individuals or religious communities particularly concerned with this issue. A shared knowledge of the different traditions of consecrated life, and a fruitful exchange of experiences, can prove beneficial for the vitality of all forms of religious life in the different Churches and Ecclesial Communities. (Jorge Says Howdy to Fellow Non-Catholics.)
Perhaps this is a good juncture to let Dom Prosper Gueranger. O.S.B., used the life and martyrdom of Saint Igantius of Loyola refute the claims about “seeking unity” with the schismatic and heretical Orthodox churches:
Successor of Saint Peter in the See of Antioch! pray for the Churches of thy Patriarchate, that they may return to the true Faith and Catholic unity. Intercede for the holy city of Rome, which thou didst water with thy blood, and which is now in possession of thy sacred relics, that were saved from the lion’s jaws. Watch over the maintenance of ecclesiastical discipline and over the maintenance of ecclesiastical discipline and order, of which thou hast left such admirable rules in thy Epistles; and obtain for the Church that all the members of her hierarchy may be united in the bonds of duty and love, that thus she may be beautiful in the strength of her unity and terrible to the enemies of God, as an army set in array. (Dom Prosper Gueranger, O.S.B., The Liturgical Year, Christmas, Book II, p. 461.)
As noted earlier, “Saint Paul II” had misrepresented Saint Ignatius as one who believed that the See of Rome was merely a “presider” over other churches in communion with it, not its sovereign ruler, and Jorge Mario Bergoglio has been as explicit as the “pope” sandwiched between them in rejecting an “ecumenism of the return,” which means “imposing” one’s set of beliefs upon those who have different “beliefs,” thus making Catholic Faith, Worship and Morals into plaything of rank subjectivism.
Bergoglio has taken this another step beyond by referring to beliefs as mere “opinions” as he rejects all “apologetic approaches:”
The woman of Sychar asks Jesus about the place where God is truly worshiped. Jesus does not side with the mountain or the temple, but goes to the heart of the matter, breaking down every wall of division. He speaks instead of the meaning of true worship: “God is spirit, and those who worship him must worship in spirit and truth” (Jn 4:24). So many past controversies between Christians can be overcome when we put aside all polemical or apologetic approaches, and seek instead to grasp more fully what unites us, namely, our call to share in the mystery of the Father’s love revealed to us by the Son through the Holy Spirit. Christian unity will not be the fruit of subtle theoretical discussions in which each party tries to convince the other of the soundness of their opinions. We need to realize that, to plumb the depths of the mystery of God, we need one another, we need to encounter one another and to challenge one another under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, who harmonizes diversities and overcomes conflicts. (Jorge Says Howdy to Fellow Non-Catholics.)
This means, of course, that the very apologetic work of Saint Francis de Sales, whose feast we celebrate today, Monday, January 29, 2018 (see Saint Francis de Sales: Apostle of Charity and Zealous Foe of Calvinism), was for naught as the Apostle of Charity did indeed seek to convince Calvinists of the unsoundness of their false teachings.
Ah, the Catholic Church seeks with urgency the conversion of all non-Catholics to her maternal bosom.
The Apostles did so, and all but one died a martyr’s death for being faithful to the mission that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ gave them before He Ascended to His Co-Equal, Co-Eternal God the Father’s right hand in glory on Ascension Thursday.
Countless millions of Catholics have risked everything, including life itself, to seek the conversion of non-Catholics to the true Church.
Indeed, the whole point of the Chair of Unity Octave that is celebrated by the Catholic Church during her mystical burial at this time of apostasy and betrayal is to pray for the conversion of all non-Catholics to the true Faith, including Jews, pagans (Buddhists, Hindus, animists, Yazidis, etc.), Protestants, the Orthodox, heretical Catholics and, among others, the Mohammedans. (The next article on this site will deal with the Argentine Apostate’s benign treatment of Mohammedans, which is really no different than that of his immediate two predecessors in the conciliar presidential chair.)
The counterfeit church of conciliarism’s Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, on the other hand, is premised on the acceptance of the inherent “goodness” of all false religions and that “Christianity” is in need of “dialogue” in order to become “one.”
True to the Sacred Deposit of Faith, our true popes have acquitted their duties to Holy Mother Church’s Divine Founder, Invisible Head and Mystical Bridegroom by rejecting false ecumenism and by exhorting all outside the Barque of Peter to enter lest their immortal souls perish for all eternity.
Pope Pius IX wrote an Apostolical Letter, Iam Vos Omnes, September 13, 1868, that was addressed specifically to Protestants a year ahead of the [First] Vatican Council to exhort them to quit their errors and to return to the true Church in which their ancestors had been nourished unto eternal life:
It is for this reason that so many who do not share 'the communion and the truth of the Catholic Church' must make use of the occasion of the Council, by the means of the Catholic Church, which received in Her bosom their ancestors, proposes [further] demonstration of profound unity and of firm vital force; hear the requirements [demands] of her heart, they must engage themselves to leave this state that does not guarantee for them the security of salvation. She does not hesitate to raise to the Lord of mercy most fervent prayers to tear down of the walls of division, to dissipate the haze of errors, and lead them back within holy Mother Church, where their Ancestors found salutary pastures of life; where, in an exclusive way, is conserved and transmitted whole the doctrine of Jesus Christ and wherein is dispensed the mysteries of heavenly grace.
It is therefore by force of the right of Our supreme Apostolic ministry, entrusted to us by the same Christ the Lord, which, having to carry out with [supreme] participation all the duties of the good Shepherd and to follow and embrace with paternal love all the men of the world, we send this Letter of Ours to all the Christians from whom We are separated, with which we exhort them warmly and beseech them with insistence to hasten to return to the one fold of Christ; we desire in fact from the depths of the heart their salvation in Christ Jesus, and we fear having to render an account one day to Him, Our Judge, if, through some possibility, we have not pointed out and prepared the way for them to attain eternal salvation. In all Our prayers and supplications, with thankfulness, day and night we never omit to ask for them, with humble insistence, from the eternal Shepherd of souls the abundance of goods and heavenly graces. And since, if also, we fulfill in the earth the office of vicar, with all our heart we await with open arms the return of the wayward sons to the Catholic Church, in order to receive them with infinite fondness into the house of the Heavenly Father and to enrich them with its inexhaustible treasures. By our greatest wish for the return to the truth and the communion with the Catholic Church, upon which depends not only the salvation of all of them, but above all also of the whole Christian society: the entire world in fact cannot enjoy true peace if it is not of one fold and one shepherd. (Pope Pius IX, Iam Vos Omnes, September 13, 1868.)
Pope Pius IX feared to have to render an account to Christ the King if he had, "through some possibility," "not pointed out and prepared the way for them to attain eternal salvation. Jorge Mario Bergoglio, a brutal ecclesiastical tyrant, does not.
Pope Pius IX was a Catholic and thus a true and legitimate Successor of Saint Peter.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio is a heretic who is nothing other than an insane dreamer, rebel and miscreant.
Pope Leo XIII also sought with urgency the unconditional conversion of non-Catholics to the true Faith, addressing the Orthodox as follows in Praeclara Gratulationis Publicae, June 20, 1884.)
Weigh carefully in your minds and before God the nature of Our request. It is not for any human motive, but impelled by Divine Charity and a desire for the salvation of all, that We advise the reconciliation and union with the Church of Rome; and We mean a perfect and complete union, such as could not subsist in any way if nothing else was brought about but a certain kind of agreement in the Tenets of Belief and an intercourse of Fraternal love. The True Union between Christians is that which Jesus Christ, the Author of the Church, instituted and desired, and which consists in a Unity of Faith and Unity of Government. (Pope Leo XIII, referring to the Orthodox in Praeclara Gratulationis Publicae, June 20, 1884.)
Condemning the nascent ecumenical movement of his own day that would triumph at the "Second" Vatican Council and in the "magisterium" of the conciliar "popes," Pope Pius XI was just as direct in inviting non-Catholics to convert to the the Faith:
Let, therefore, the separated children draw nigh to the Apostolic See, set up in the City which Peter and Paul, the Princes of the Apostles, consecrated by their blood; to that See, We repeat, which is "the root and womb whence the Church of God springs," not with the intention and the hope that "the Church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth" will cast aside the integrity of the faith and tolerate their errors, but, on the contrary, that they themselves submit to its teaching and government. Would that it were Our happy lot to do that which so many of Our predecessors could not, to embrace with fatherly affection those children, whose unhappy separation from Us We now bewail. Would that God our Savior, "Who will have all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth," would hear us when We humbly beg that He would deign to recall all who stray to the unity of the Church! In this most important undertaking We ask and wish that others should ask the prayers of Blessed Mary the Virgin, Mother of divine grace, victorious over all heresies and Help of Christians, that She may implore for Us the speedy coming of the much hoped-for day, when all men shall hear the voice of Her divine Son, and shall be "careful to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace." (Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos, January 6, 1928.)
The Catholic Church is indeed "the pillar and ground of the truth, which is why she can never cast aside the "integrity of the faith" in order to tolerate the errors of non-Catholics. Her shepherds have unhesitatingly invited all non-Catholics to submit to the teaching and government of the Catholic Church, which was founded by Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ upon the Rock of Peter, the Pope.
Alas, Jorge Mario Bergoglio believes that it is a virtue to tolerate the errors of non-Catholics. There is, of course, a certain logic in this as he is steeped in heresy and error himself, expecting us to tolerate him as a "pope" despite this fact.
Perhaps Jorge Mario Bergoglio would like to tell Our Lady herself, to whom he professes a devotion while promoting doctrines and presiding over liturgies that are repugnant to her, that she was wrong to seek the conversion of Catholic apostate Pierre Port-Combet, who had apostatized to become a devotee of the hideous revolutionary named John Calvin:
Then the Lady said, "Where does that heretic live who cut the willow tree? Does he not want to be converted?"
Pierre [Port-Combet, who had become a Calvinist] mumbled an answer. The Lady became more serious, "Do you think that I do not know that you are the heretic? Realize that your end is at hand. If you do not return to the True Faith, you will be cast into Hell! But if you change your beliefs, I shall protect you before God. Tell people to pray that they may gain the good graces which, God in His mercy has offered to them."
Pierre was filled with sorrow and shame and moved away from the Lady. Suddenly realizing that he was being rude, Pierre stepped closer to her, but she had moved away and was already near the little hill. He ran after her begging, "Please stop and listen to me. I want to apologize to you and I want you to help me!"
The Lady stopped and turned. By the time Pierre caught up to her, she was floating in the air and was already disappearing from sight. Suddenly, Pierre realized that the Most Blessed Virgin Mary had appeared to him! He fell to his knees and cried buckets of tears, "Jesus and Mary I promise you that I will change my life and become a good Catholic. I am sorry for what I have done and I beg you please, to help me change my life…"
On August 14, 1656, Pierre became very sick. An Augustinian priest came to hear his confession and accepted him back into the Catholic Church. Pierre received Holy Communion the next day on the Feast of the Assumption. After Pierre returned to the Catholic Faith, many others followed him. His son and five daughters came back to the Catholic Church as well as many Calvinists and Protestants. Five weeks later on September 8, 1656, Pierre died and was buried under the miraculous willow tree, just as he had asked. (Our Lady of the Willow Tree.)
There is not one wretched thing about conciliarism that has the approval of the Mother of God.
No, not the "new ecclesiology."
No, not false ecumenism.
No, not "inter-religious prayer services."
No, not "inter-religious dialogue."
No, not "religious liberty."
No, not "separation of Church and State."
No, not "the hermeneutic of continuity" or its cousin, "living tradition."
No, not "episcopal collegiality."
No, not the Protestant and Judeo-Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical service and all of its Jansenist "reforms" (the liturgy as a "meal" and not the unbloody re-presentation or perpetuation of the Sacrifice of the Cross, the obliteration of the distinction between the presider and the laity, the proliferation of laity in the sanctuary, endless expressions of lay "participation" in the service, plenty of room for improvisation).
Our Lady does approve anything about the counterfeit church of conciliarism as it mocks her Divine Son, Christ the King, and the Sacred Deposit of Faith that He has revealed exclusively to His Catholic Church for its eternal safekeeping and infallible explication in all of Its Holy Purity, and this is why Jorge Mario Bergoglio. We turn, as always to Our Lady, who holds us in the crossing of her arms and in the folds of her mantle. We must, as the consecrated slaves of her Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, through her Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, pray as many Rosaries each day as our states-in-life permit, trusting that we might be able to plant a few seeds for the Triumph of that same Immaculate Heart.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon!
Viva Cristo Rey!
