Francis The Syncretist
by Thomas A. Droleskey
I am sick.
Sick, sick, sick.
Sick for the honor and glory and majesty of the Most Blessed Trinity.
Sick for the honor of Our Lady.
Sick for the hundreds of million people, Catholic and non-Catholic alike, who might be paying attention to World Youth Day in the belief that its ambiance, liturgies, music and words represent Catholicism.
It is not necessary to make this commentary any longer than is absolutely necessary as those who do not understand the simple fact that the Catholic has never been nor can ever been responsible in any way for creating, promoting, sustaining and celebrating the blasphemies, outrages, sacrileges and various Judeo-Masonic-Pagan that constitute the entirety of "World Youth Day," which was the brainchild of the late Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II, who introduced these extravaganzas on the grandest scale imaginable.
Permit, therefore, just a few observations about the syncretist ceremonies that took place on Tuesday evening, July 23, 2013, the Feast of Saint Apollinaris and the Commemoration of Saint Liborius, and yesterday morning, Wednesday, July 24, 2013, the Vigil of the Feast of Saint James the Greater and the Commemoration of Saint Christina. After all, I forced myself to watch both spectacles after the fact by accessing the videos of each on the Vatican website. I must not let such an expenditure of time go to waste.
Send In The Clowns
To watch the entirety of the video of what was billed as the "Opening Mass" of "World Day 2013" is to behold one of many realizations of the following visions of the Venerable Anne Catherine Emmerich, admitting that there is no true Holy Father now to be consoled by apparitions from Heaven:
the strangest things that I saw, were long processions of bishops.
Their thoughts and utterances were made known to me through images
issuing from their mouths. Their faults towards religion were shown
by external deformities. A few had only a body, with a dark cloud
of fog instead of a head. Others had only a head, their bodies and
hearts were think like vapors. Some were lame; others were paralytics;
others were asleep or staggering.
saw what I believe to be nearly all the bishops of the world, but
only a small number were perfectly sound. I also saw the Holy Father--God-fearing
and prayerful. Nothing left to be desired in his appearance, but he
was weakened by old age, and by much suffering. His head was lolling
from side to side, and it dropped onto his chest as if he were falling
asleep. He often fainted and seemed to be dying. But when he was praying,
he was often comforted by apparitions from Heaven. Then, his head
was erect, but as soon as it dropped again onto his chest, I saw a
number of people looking quickly right and left, that is, in the direction
of the world.
"Then, I saw
that everything that pertained to Protestantism was gradually gaining
the upper hand, and the Catholic religion fell into complete decadence.
Most priests were lured by the glittering but false knowledge of young
school-teachers, and they all contributed to the work of deception.
those days, Faith will fall very low, and it will be preserved in
some places only, in a few cottages and in a few families which God
has protected from disasters and wars." (Quotes found
in Yves Dupont's Catholic Prophecy book, which was published
by TAN and Books Publishers in 1970.
I saw a strange church being built against every rule. . . No angels were supervising the building operations. In that church, nothing came from high above. . . There was only
division and chaos. It is probably a church of human creation, following
the latest fashion, as well as the new heterodox church of Rome, which
seems of the same kind. . .
I saw again the strange big church that was being
built there (in Rome). There was nothing holy in it. I saw this just as I
saw a movement led by Ecclesiastics to which contributed angels, saints
and other Christians. But then (in the strange big change) all the work
was being done mechanically (i.e. according to set rules and formulae).
Everything was being done according to human reason. . .
I saw all sorts of people, things, doctrines, and
opinions. There was something proud, presumptuous, and violent about it,
and they seemed to be very successful. I did not see a single Angel nor
a single saint helping in the work. But far away in the background, I
saw the seat of a cruel people armed with spears, and I saw a laughing
figure which said: "Do build it as solid as you can; we will put it to
the ground" . . . . (as found in Yves Dupont, Catholic Prophecy: The Coming Chastisement, TAN Books and Publishers, 1970, p. 61)
First, of course, there was on Tuesday evening the spectacle of flag waving youths marching and dancing their way up to the steps that that ascend to the sacrilegious "table" upon which God's Holy Name is invoked blasphemously in a sacrilegious liturgy that is the very antithesis of the dignity, solemnity, reverence and sobriety that must characterize a true offering of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
One conciliar commentator breathlessly expressed his wondrous awe and enthusiasm for this spectacle that had nothing to do with the ineffable Sacrifice of the Cross that is Holy Mass:
(Vatican Radio) Copacabana beach was the place to be on Tuesday evening as thousands of people flocked to the famed spot to be part of the Mass celebrating the opening of World Youth Day. Our correspondent Seàn Patrick Lovett was there and sends this report.
I braved the elements and walked six and a half kilometres all the way down the beach to the Mass site. I know it’s six and a half kilometres because there are giant hydrogen balloons floating in the air to tell you how far you have to go. Then I walked back. That’s thirteen kilometres. I did it for you – because I know you’d love to be where I am, to experience what I’m experiencing. And I’m so grateful I did.
Whatever you may or may not have seen on television – believe me it was nothing compared to being there in person. The sights, the sounds, the smells, the sheer old-fashioned excitement of it all: Woodstock (the music), the Olympics (the flags), and a massive beach party (the surf), all rolled into one. And the young people kept on coming: Brazilians mostly (they live here), closely followed by Argentinians (we know why), and then…the rest of the world. Complete strangers stopping to ask you where you are from, others turning to smile (sheepishly, when they’re the same age you are – as if to say “It’s OK…we’re all young at heart”). Everyone wanting you to take their picture. Everyone laughing, singing, dancing – even the occasional bishop doing everything he could to be trendy while trying to keep the sand out of his sash. Street vendors did a roaring trade, selling everything from caps to caipirinhas, from banners to bananas. And the young people kept on coming (some of them later because a portion of the metro broke down for a while). They filled the streets and covered the beach, some even splashed about among the waves of the Atlantic. Then the ceremony itself began – and suddenly it was show-time, with a precision and a pageantry worthy of any Olympic opening ceremony. The WYD Cross arrived and I saw a young girl burst into tears when she reached out to touch it – and couldn’t. I saw a disabled young man being carried over the heads of the crowd like a rock-star – because his wheelchair got stuck in the sand. Then the Mass began – and suddenly it was prayer-time, with an attention and participation worthy of any open-air cathedral. I felt the specialness of it all, the uniqueness of the moment, and the privilege of being able to be there. (World Youth Day opens at Copacabana.)
Sean Patrick Lovett is a total creature of conciliarism, bereft of the following simple facts: that (a) Woodstock was a celebration of diabolical music, gross immodesty, indecency, impurity and the use of hallucinogenic substance; that (b) the Olympics are a Judeo-Masonic display of immodesty and a celebration of the human spirit, unaided by Sanctifying and Actual Graces, to accomplish great athletic feats for a crown of laurels that fades; that (c) no one is supposed to laugh or dance, no less sing to the tunes being sung at Copacabana Beach on Tuesday evening, at an alleged procession of a cross, albeit one without the corpus of the Divine Redeemer, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ; that (d) no Catholic in his right mind thinks of Holy Mass as a "pageantry" or compares it in any way to the opening of the Olympics in a praiseworthy manner; that (e) no Catholic refers to the beginning of Mass as "show-time."
Yet it is, of course, that a "show" is precisely what takes place during every staging of the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical service. It is only that the "show" becomes more extravagant, more bizarre, more pagan and more carefully choreographed by the forces of Hell at travesties such as World Youth Day.
Third, the black-clad singers, led alternately by men and women from the lectern from the stage, swayed back and forth in a perfect choreography of movement that must have been rehearsed for months beforehand. The performance was worthy of any black "Gospel Choir," and it was no doubt inspired by that particular brand of Protestant liturgical music. The black-clad singers sang music that was secular and pagan, going so far as to drown out the principal "celebrant" of the Novus Ordo service, Orani João Tempesta, the conciliar "archbishop" of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, a man who was born seventeen months, one day before this writer's birth, which means that he should know better, as he was pronouncing the Portuguese equivalent of Domine non sum dignus prior to consuming part of the oversized part of the supersized host that he believed to have been the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The music was nearly endless, accompanied by incessant flag waving, hand waving and applause throughout the abomination.
Fourth, in a note that will be of some interest to those with long memories, I believe that I saw none other than Bishop Fernando Areas Rifan of the Society of Saint John Mary Vianney in Campos, Brazil, standing on the the steps leading up to the main stage at one point in the procession. I could be wrong. However, he was at World Youth Day 2011 in Madrid, Spain, where he went so far as to attend a program put on by adherents of one of those heretical "lay movements" that have received such encouragement from the conciliar "popes," the Neocatechumenal Way (Rifan can be seen in the following video at the 1:33 and 2:06 marks). . The man I saw dressed as a bishop in Novus Ordo Mass vestments sure looked like Bishop Rifan, and given the fact that he has permitted himself to be swallowed up whole by the conciliar behemoth following Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II's "regularization" of the Society of Saint John Mary Vianney on January 18, 2002, I believe that my observation when watching the video yesterday is correct, especially when one considers the fact that he is on the program of World Youth Day to discuss the "extraordinary form of the 'one' Roman Rite" to those attendees who might be interested (see Young love for the old).
This just happens to call to mind Bishop Bernard Fellay's November 10, 2004, castigation of Bishop Rifan's sellout to the conciliar authorities that Bishop Fellay, the Superior General of the Society of Saint Pius X seems to have flushed down his own inner memory hole as he tried to get "recognize" for his own group, steeped as it is in the falsehoods of the "resist while recognize" theology that were condemned by Pope Pius VI in Auctorem Fidei, August 28, 1794:
I just would like to give you some steps on one
person who is the head of Campos. Before he was consecrated a bishop,
Fr. Rifan, just a few months before, said in Rome to the Vicar General
—who repeated it to Fr. Schmidberger, so we have it from a direct source
—said, "I have no problem with celebrating the New Mass, but I don’t do it because it would cause trouble to the faithful." So
when Rome is consecrating Rifan a bishop, they know already that he has
no objection to celebrating the New Mass. I think it is important to
see that. That is the first step.
I may say that there is even a step before. Before
that, he goes with the diocesan Corpus Christi procession, and he says
to those who oppose it, "If we would not have done that, we would have jeopardized the agreement with Rome." It shows you the direction.
The next step will be the jubilee of the diocese of
Campos. For that occasion, of course, the local bishop is having a
great ceremony, and Rome invites Bishop Rifan to go to
that New Mass, to be there. And Bishop Rifan goes there. He does not
participate in the sense of concelebrating the Mass, but he is there
present with all his ecclesiastical ornaments, with a surplice and so
on. He is really there at this New Mass.
The next step will be the Requiem [i.e., the Novus Ordo "Resurrection"] Mass for the bishop who had kicked them out, Bishop
Navarro. At that Requiem Mass, you have Bishop Rifan there, and also the
nuncio. The nuncio invites Bishop Rifan to go to Communion, and Bishop
Rifan receives Communion at this New Mass.
The next step will be the Mass of Thanksgiving of
the new cardinal of Sao Paolo. This time, Bishop Rifan is there again
present at that New Mass; he is in the choir. He is not in his surplice;
nevertheless, at the time of consecration, with the other priests and
bishops celebrating, he raises his hands and says the words of
consecration. A seminarian saw him.
And now, the 8th of September this year, we have
photos and even a video of the Mass concelebrated by Bishop Rifan on the
occasion of the centennial of the coronation of Our Lady of the
Aparecida, who is the patroness of Brazil. He is concelebrating the New
Mass, a New Mass where you have really scandalous happenings: ladies
giving Communion in the hand, a ceremony of coronation where, among all
the cardinals and bishops, there is a lady who is crowning our Lady, and
so on. Trying to defend himself, he said "But I did not say the words of consecration." I may say, that makes it even worse, because that means he is cheating.
That’s the evolution: now he is two years a
bishop, and he is already concelebrating the New Mass. You see, and
that is the natural development which was announced from the start by
the officials in Rome, Cottier, now Cardinal Cottier and Msgr. Perl. At
the time of the agreement between Campos and Rome, Cottier said: "Now they have recognized the Council. The next step will be the new Mass." He even said, "There is a natural, psychological dynamic." And you see in Bishop Rifan a real, natural, clear demonstration of this phrase. (EXTRACT from Bishop Fellay's November 10, 2004 conference in Kansas City, MO regarding Bishop Rifan's actions.)
I cannot help but call to mind at this point a to a luncheon which I had been invited in October of 2004 that I knew would be something along the lines of an inquisition.
The invitation that I received came from a very
well-meaning Catholic concerned only about the good of Holy Mother
Church. Although this Catholic was in attendance at the luncheon, the
main purpose of the invitation was to permit a traditionally-minded
conciliar presbyter, one who is quite knowledgeable and for whom I
continue to pray every day, to skewer me at great length, getting very
red in the face on occasion when I would not accept his sophistries and
rationalizations, for writing an article, "The High Price of
Recognition," that had been published in Catholic Family News.
That article, which my principal inquisitor had not even read prior to
lambasting me, demonstrated in a very systematic and logical fashion how
Bishop Fernando Areas Rifan of the Society of Saint John Mary Vianney
in Campos, Brazil, was singing quite a different tune following the
"reconciliation" he entered into on January 18, 2002, with the
counterfeit church of concilairism than he had done during the lifetime
of the late Bishop Antonio de Castro Mayer, a firm opponent of the
Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo service and of the false
ecumenism of the conciliar "popes." The inquisition ended in a Mexican
standoff, and it was the last time that I was to visit with the
inquisitor and his associates, although each remains in my prayers every
day without fail. Sharon even piped in at one moment when the presbyter asked where all of the criticism of Rifan was going to lead, angering the man greatly when she said, "It's supposed to lead to martyrdom."
If you will pardon a personal point of privilege here, I would like to ask the presbyter who lambasted me nine years ago if my analysis of Rifan's sellout and subsequent, self-confessed "simulation" of a Novus Ordo liturgical service at the Shrine of Our Lady of Aparecida, Brazil, on September 8, 2004, the Feast of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, was not right on the money. He knows know that it was, which is why I ask him to take seriously the fact that I am not wrong now in stating that none of this can come from the Catholic Church, that it is all the work of a counterchurch that is but the counterfeit ape of the Catholic Church. Attend a session celebrating Kiko Arguello's Neocatechumenal Way? Attend World Youth Day 2013? No, although I was wrong about the true state of the Church Militant in this time of apostasy and betrayal in 2004, I was not incorrect about what Bishop Fernando Areas Rifan's sellout meant at the time and where it was meant to lead over time, that is, to World Youth Day.
Fifth, the distribution of what purported to be Holy Communion at Tuesday evening's spectacle in the dead of winter on Copacabana (gee, I thought that's where Billy Martin got fired from the incarnation of all evil in the world, the New York Yankees, the first time when involved in a melee at the nightclub by that name in the Borough of Manhattan in City of New York on May 16, 1957) Beach (yes, I know full well that what the nightclub was named after, thank you), was a typical free-for-all during such extravaganzas as presbyters filed out from the stage to wade into the crowds, who pressed up to the rail to receive the unconsecrated host. I watched all of this in horror because I was at "papal" liturgies in such circumstances during the days of Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II, seeing a presbyter say to a woman on the sidewalk of Franklin Parkway in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on Thursday, October 4, 1979, who was passing one after another another to those around here, "Hey, lady, you can't do that!" Why not? Everything goes in such extravaganzas.
In other words, the opening liturgy of World Youth Day 2013 was produced, choreographed and staged by agents of Antichrist even though they do not see this as being so. It was an exercise in pure Judeo-Masonic-Pagan syncretism.
Syncretism at the Shrine of Our Lady of Aparecida, Brazil
Yesterday's festivities at the Shrine of Our Lady of Aparecida, upon which construction was begun in 1955 and completed in 1984, which means that it is a travesty from beginning to end that has hosted such abominations as those featured recently (see Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo Travesty, replete with Circus Music at what is called "The Entrance of the Bible" and Ray Charles, Stevie Wonder, Jose Feliciano and Helen Keller Introduce the Bible), was a syncretism of certain elements of Catholicism, such as the singing of the Panis Angelicus during the distribution of what purported to be Holy Communion in Jorge Mario Bergoglio's first public liturgical staging while in Brazil, within the context of the Novus Ordo as presented in Portuguese, replete with "Eucharistic Prayer III," and the Protestantized prayers and rubrics.
Bergoglio/Francis's sermon, delivered in Portuguese according to the prepared text as he is not fluent enough in his neighboring country's principal language to speak it fluently in an extemporaneous manner, which is one of the reasons he was smiling greatly as he spoke on the balcony of the shrine in Spanish after the conclusion of the ceremony, was a rehash of many of the "homilies" he has given during the daily sessions of his own Ding Dong School Of Apostasy at the Casa Santa Marta within the walls of the Vatican, including the following tripe that he has stated on more than one occasion in the past four months, twelve days:
2. The second attitude: openness to being surprised by God. Anyone who is a man or a woman of hope – the great hope which faith gives us – knows that even in the midst of difficulties God acts and he surprises us. The history of this Shrine is a good example: three fishermen, after a day of catching no fish, found something unexpected in the waters of the Parnaíba River: an image of Our Lady of the Immaculate Conception. Whoever would have thought that the site of a fruitless fishing expedition would become the place where all Brazilians can feel that they are children of one Mother? God always surprises us, like the new wine in the Gospel we have just heard. God always saves the best for us. But he asks us to let ourselves be surprised by his love, to accept his surprises. Let us trust God! Cut off from him, the wine of joy, the wine of hope, runs out. If we draw near to him, if we stay with him, what seems to be cold water, difficulty, sin, is changed into the new wine of friendship with him.
3. The third attitude: living in joy. Dear friends, if we walk in hope, allowing ourselves to be surprised by the new wine which Jesus offers us, we have joy in our hearts and we cannot fail to be witnesses of this joy. Christians are joyful, they are never gloomy. God is at our side. We have a Mother who always intercedes for the life of her children, for us, as Queen Esther did in the first reading (cf Est 5:3). Jesus has shown us that the face of God is that of a loving Father. Sin and death have been defeated. Christians cannot be pessimists! They do not look like someone in constant mourning. If we are truly in love with Christ and if we sense how much he loves us, our heart will “light up” with a joy that spreads to everyone around us. As Benedict XVI said here, in this Shrine: “the disciple knows that without Christ, there is no light, no hope, no love, no future” (Inaugural Address, Fifth General Conference of the Bishops of Latin America and the Caribbean, Aparecida, 13 May 2007, 3). (Liturgical Travesty in the Shrine of Our
Lady of the Conception, Wednesday, July 23, 2013.)
Bergoglio/Francis was trying to place the discovery by Brazilian fishermen in October of 1717, two hundred years before the Miracle of the Sun in the Cova da Iria near Fatima, Portugal, by the way, of the statue of Our Lady of Aparecida with "surprises" that he belongs God has "sprung" on the Catholic Church in the past five years. This is beneath contempt as it blasphemously dishonors Our Lady, whose statue is house in a den of utter iniquity and paganism.
One must recall what the false "pontiff" said about on May 19, 2013, about "God's surprises" to understand the extent of this blasphemy:
1. Newness always makes us a bit fearful, because we feel more
secure if we have everything under control, if we are the ones who
build, programme and plan our lives in accordance with our own ideas,
our own comfort, our own preferences. This is also the case when it
comes to God. Often we follow him, we accept him, but only up to a
certain point. It is hard to abandon ourselves to him with complete
trust, allowing the Holy Spirit to be the soul and guide of our lives in
our every decision. We fear that God may force us to strike out on new
paths and leave behind our all too narrow, closed and selfish horizons
in order to become open to his own. Yet throughout the history of
salvation, whenever God reveals himself, he brings newness and change,
and demands our complete trust: Noah, mocked by all, builds an ark and
is saved; Abram leaves his land with only a promise in hand; Moses
stands up to the might of Pharaoh and leads his people to freedom; the
apostles, huddled fearfully in the Upper Room, go forth with courage to
proclaim the Gospel. This is not a question of novelty for novelty’s
sake, the search for something new to relieve our boredom, as is so
often the case in our own day. The newness which God brings into our
life is something that actually brings fulfilment, that gives true joy,
true serenity, because God loves us and desires only our good. Let us
ask ourselves: Are we open to “God’s surprises”? Or are we closed and
fearful before the newness of the Holy Spirit? Do we have the courage
to strike out along the new paths which God’s newness sets before us, or
do we resist, barricaded in transient structures which have lost their
capacity for openness to what is new?
2. A second thought: the Holy
Spirit would appear to create disorder in the Church, since he brings
the diversity of charisms and gifts; yet all this, by his working, is a
great source of wealth, for the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of unity,
which does not mean uniformity, but which leads everything back to harmony.
In the Church, it is the Holy Spirit who creates harmony. One of
Fathers of the Church has an expression which I love: the Holy Spirit
himself is harmony – “Ipse harmonia est”. Only the Spirit can
awaken diversity, plurality and multiplicity, while at the same time
building unity. Here too, when we are the ones who try to create
diversity and close ourselves up in what makes us different and other,
we bring division. When we are the ones who want to build unity in
accordance with our human plans, we end up creating uniformity,
standardization. But if instead we let ourselves be guided by the
Spirit, richness, variety and diversity never become a source of
conflict, because he impels us to experience variety within the
communion of the Church. Journeying together in the Church, under the
guidance of her pastors who possess a special charism and ministry, is a
sign of the working of the Holy Spirit. Having a sense of the Church
is something fundamental for every Christian, every community and every
movement. It is the Church which brings Christ to me, and me to Christ;
parallel journeys are dangerous! When we venture beyond (proagon) the Church’s teaching and community, and do not remain in them, we are not one with the God of Jesus Christ (cf. 2 Jn 9). So let us ask ourselves: Am I open to the harmony of the Holy
Spirit, overcoming every form of exclusivity? Do I let myself be
guided by him, living in the Church and with the Church? (Super Duper Apostate at Pentecost: Newness, harmony and mission.)
Yes, you see, traditionally-minded Catholics are "pessimists" who are not open to "God's surprises," who are in "mourning" because of the state of the Church Militant in this time of apostasy and betrayal because they "want to build unity in accordance" with what he thinks are "human plans" that create "uniformity and standardization." Well, behold the pluralism and "creativity" on display at World Youth Day and tell me that we should be making acts of reparation for these offenses to Christ the King, whose statue overlooks the harbor of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and His Most Blessed Mother?
Mind you, it is true that Catholics are not pessimists. We are not pessimists, though, because the Supernatural Virtues of Faith, Hope and Charity have been infused into our immortal souls at Baptism. Although concerned about the state of the Church Militant at this time of apostasy and betrayal, mindful of the role that our own sins have played in worsening both the state of the Church and that of the world-at-large, we know that there will be the Triumph of the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary when a true pope consecrates Russia to her with all of the world's true bishops.
And while Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis may yet mention Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary during the remaining four days of his time in Brazil, he did not do so at any point during his time while visiting that country's principal Marian shrine, including in his "homily."
A final observation about Francis The Anti-Apostle's visit to Aparecida yesterday must include noting how warmly he greeted the heretical and schismatic representatives of Orthodoxy and a man who appeared to be the principal Talmudic rabbi. Bergoglio/Francis kissed the principal rabbi and a compatriot on the cheeks. One must expect a display of false ecumenism during conciliarism's extravaganzas celebrations of syncretism.
No Mention of Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary to Addicts and the Mentally Ill
Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis's other public appearance yesterday came when he made a visit to the Hospital of Saint Francis of Assisi of the Providence of God in the Tijuca section of northern Rio de Janeiro, having taken a helicopter from Sao Paolo, Brazil, area where the Shrine of Our Lady of Aparecida is located. The false "pontiff" was greeted by a variety of employees and patients, most of whom are being treated for drug/alcohol addiction or for psychiatric illnesses of one sort or another, some of whom were dressed as court jesters or clowns or sporting, I kid you not (you do recall the late Jack Paar, right?), rabbit ears, each of whom is just as much a claimant to the "papal" throne as he is.
Bergoglio/Francis's brief address to the patients and staff, which is administered by a group of Third Order Franciscans that was founded in 1985 by the conciliar authorities, contained many very good points, including opposing the legalization of hallucinogenic substances as a "solution" to drug abuse. Alas, the false "pope" never once exhorted the recovering addicts or the mentally ill to seek to cooperate with Sanctifying Grace, a phrase he has not used at any time during his "Petrine Ministry" and is not to be found anywhere in the text of the "two-headed 'pope' monster's" Lumen Fidei, July 5, 2013, or to pray Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary for assistance, telling them instead that had to "stand up" on their own. No, I kid you not:
To embrace someone is not enough, however. We must hold the hand of
the one in need, of the one who has fallen into the darkness of
dependency perhaps without even knowing how, and we must say to him or
her: You can get up, you can stand up. It is difficult, but it is
possible if you want to. Dear friends, I wish to say to each of you, but
especially to all those others who have not had the courage to embark
on our journey: You have to want to stand up; this is the indispensable
condition! You will find an outstretched hand ready to help you, but no
one is able to stand up in your place. But you are never alone! The
Church and so many people are close to you. Look ahead with confidence.
Yours is a long and difficult journey, but look ahead, there is “a sure
future, set against a different horizon with regard to the illusory
enticements of the idols of this world, yet granting new momentum and
strength to our daily lives” (Lumen Fidei, 57). To all of you, I repeat:
Do not let yourselves be robbed of hope! And not only that, but I say
to us all: let us not rob others of hope, let us become bearers of hope! (Defeating the darkness of drug dependency.)
Those who are addicted to various substances and/or are suffering from mental illnesses of one sort or another need not only an outstretched hand from others in the pattern of the Good Samaritan. No, they need Sanctifying Grace as they rely upon Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary. It is precisely the lack of Sanctifying Grace in the world and the lack of "papal" exhortations to pray the Rosary, which was destroyed by one ostensibly devoted to it, Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II, that leads more and more people into lives of hopeless addiction or despair as without the graces won for us by Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ by the shedding of every single drop of His Most Precious Blood on the wood of the Holy Cross that flow into our souls through the loving hands of Our Lady, she who is the Mediatrix of All Graces, we can do nothing but fall into the very hopelessness that Bergoglio/Francis says he wants to cure. Impossible.
Well, that is all for now. It is a late hour, and I meant to update the donations page for the first time in nine weeks as there has been minimal support from the readership of this site in that time (and by minimal it is meant to say around twelve people, only three of whom have sent anything via the snail mail). However, there should be more in the coming days of the spectacle of end times that is World Youth Day that is unfolding before our very eyes.
In the meantime, please do pray as many Rosaries as your state-in-life permits for the conversion of Francis the Syncretist and his band of revolutionaries as we seek to make reparation for the manifold offenses they give to both the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and to the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Do not be discouraged or disheartened.
Our Lady's Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart will triumph in the end.
Isn't it time to pray a Rosary now?
Vivat Christus Rex! Viva Cristo Rey!
Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.
