Francis, The Talking Apostate!
by Thomas A. Droleskey
Boy, do they have an apostate!
The apostates who concluded their voting at around 7:10 p.m. Rome time, got a real doozy of an apostate. His audition must have gone over better than Timothy Michael Dolan's.
They got Francis, The Talking Apostate!
Jorge Mario Bergoglio, now the sixth in the line of the false popes of the Catholic Church's counterfeit ape, the counterfeit church of conciliarism, is a walking, talking mass of confusion along the lines of Timothy Michael Dolan, albeit without Dolan's backslapping, glad handling and constant stream of ad-lib jokes.
Here is Jorge Mario Bergoglio with his two immediate predecessors as heads of the Occupy Vatican Movement:
Three Apostate Amigos: Ratzinger, Bergoglio and Wojtyla
Here are some basic facts about Antipope Francis I:
- Born on December 17, 1936, Jorge Mario Bergoglio is only nine years, eight months younger than His Apostateness, Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, Antipope Emeritus. Appearing very frail, if not unsure of himself, and known to hate being away from Buenos Aires, Bergoglio is likely to resign in the model of Ratzinger/Benedict's new and improved "democratic" concept of what the conciliarists term "the Petrine Ministry" (see Whittling Away At The Last Catholic Bastion).
- The runner-up in the voting that took place on April 18, 2005, that resulted in the election of then Joseph "Cardinal" Ratzinger, Bergoglio had the support of the likes of the notorious, nefarious protector of predator clergymen and propagandists of the lavender agenda named Roger Mahony (see Corrupt Chickens Come Home To Roost In Roger's Nest Of Apostates). Isn't that all you need to know?
- Bergoglio's election represents a total victory for the forces of Angelo "Cardinal" Sodano, the Occupy Vatican Movement's Secretary of State and his successor, Tarcisio "Cardinal" Bertone, both of whom desired a successor to Ratzinger/Benedict who would not undertake any serious reform of the curia.
- As will be demonstrated below, Bergoglio is a supporter of the late Father Luis Guissani's Communion and Liberation movement that was inspired by the work of such "new theologians" as the late Fathers Hans Urs von Balthasar and Henri de Lubac, carrying with it, of course, the full backing of Joseph Ratzinger (see Proud Of His Blasphemy And Of His Blaspheming Mentor).
- Bergoglio is unsympathetic to the restoration of the Immemorial Mass of Tradition within the conciliar structures, about which even some of those in the "recognize but resist" movement are already gnashing their teeth and rending their garments as they continue to lament the retirement of their champion, the "restorer of tradition," Ratzinger/Benedict.
To amplify this last point, an observation made by a "recognize but resist" Catholic journalist in Argentina noted the following as found on the Rorate Caeli blogspot:
Of all the unthinkable candidates, Jorge Mario Bergoglio is perhaps the worst. Not because he openly professes doctrines against the faith and morals, but because, judging from his work as Archbishop of Buenos Aires, faith and moral seem to have been irrelevant to him.
A sworn enemy of the Traditional Mass, he has only allowed imitations of it in the hands of declared enemies of the ancient liturgy. He has persecuted every single priest who made an effort to wear a cassock, preach with firmness, or that was simply interested in Summorum Pontificum.
Famous for his inconsistency (at times, for the unintelligibility of his addresses and homilies), accustomed to the use of coarse, demagogical, and ambiguous expressions, it cannot be said that his magisterium is heterodox, but rather non-existent for how confusing it is.
His entourage in the Buenos Aires Curia, with the exception of a few clerics, has not been characterized by the virtue of their actions. Several are under grave suspicion of moral misbehavior.
He has not missed any occasion for holding acts in which he lent his Cathedral to Protestants, Muslims, Jews, and even to partisan groups in the name of an impossible and unnecessary interreligious dialogue. He is famous for his meetings with protestants in the Luna Park arena where, together with preacher of the Pontifical House, Raniero Cantalamessa, he was "blessed" by Protestant ministers, in a common act of worship in which he, in practice, accepted the validity of the "powers" of the TV-pastors.
This election is incomprehensible: he is not a polyglot, he has no Curial experience, he does not shine for his sanctity, he is loose in doctrine and liturgy, he has not fought against abortion and only very weakly against homosexual "marriage" [approved with practically no opposition from the episcopate], he has no manners to honor the Pontifical Throne. He has never fought for anything else than to remain in positions of power.
It really cannot be what Benedict wanted for the Church. And he does not seem to have any of the conditions required to continue his work.
May God help His Church. One can never dismiss, as humanly hard as it may seem, the possibility of a conversion... and, nonetheless, the future terrifies us. (RORATE CĂLI: The Horror!A Buenos Aires journalist describes Bergoglio.)
That is a pretty good summary of the man, I believe.
Do not believe the mainstream media's reports about Bergoglio as being a "conservative" on doctrine. He is not. His opposition, for example, to "marriage" for those engaged in perverse sins against the Sixth and Ninth Commandments is coupled with a "respect" for individual homosexuals, meaning that it is permissible to identify oneself by virtue of being inclined to the commission of sins against nature. This is absurd as no one is to identify himself by his tendency to commit a particular sin. What defines us as human beings is that we bear the Divine impress on our immortal souls, and what defines us as Catholics is that we have been incorporated in the Mystical Body of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ that is the Catholic Church at the moment of our Baptism.
Then again, absurdity and contradiction are part and parcel of who Jorge Mario Bergoglio is, a total creature of concilairism, ordained as a member of the Society of Jesus on December 13, 1969, although it is unclear to me at this point whether the invalid conciliar rite of presbyteral installation was used. Paradox and absurdity are part and parcel of who is man is. How can you expect otherwise? He is trained according to the Hegelian methodology advanced by the likes of Von Balthasar and De Lubac that Ratzinger just spent the past eight years advancing under the banner of the "hermeneutic of continuity."
What is my evidence for this?
Well, how about Bergoglio's own words, contained in an interview published by Communion and Liberation's 30 Days magazine?
I will provide Francis, The Talking Apostate's own words and then provide a few very brief words of commentary:
BERGOGLIO: Staying, remaining faithful implies an outgoing. Precisely if one remains in the Lord one goes out of oneself. Paradoxically precisely because one remains, precisely if one is faithful one changes. One does not remain faithful, like the traditionalists or the fundamentalists, to the letter. Fidelity is always a change, a blossoming, a growth. The Lord brings about a change in those who are faithful to Him. That is Catholic doctrine. Saint Vincent of Lerins makes the comparison between the biologic development of the person, between the person who grows, and the Tradition which, in handing on the depositum fidei from one age to another, grows and consolidates with the passage of time: «Ut annis scilicet consolidetur, dilatetur tempore, sublimetur aetate». (30Giorni | What I would have said at the Consistory (Interview with Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio by Sefania Falasca)
Paradox and contradiction worthy of His Apostateness, Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, Antipope Emeritus. "One does not remain faithful, like the traditionalists or the fundamentalists, to the letter"?
Boy, have they got an apostate on their hands, a man who is as free with the teaching of saints such as Saint Vincent Lerins as the man who defeated him at the 2005 conciliar conclave. This is what Saint Vincent Lerins actually taught about Catholic Tradition:
"Do not be misled by various and passing doctrines.
In the Catholic Church Herself we must be careful to hold what has been
believed everywhere, always and by all; for that alone is truly and
properly Catholic." (Saint Vincent of Lerins, quoted in Tumultuous Times by Frs. Francisco and Dominic Radecki, CMRI, p. 279.)
"But he appears so humble and simple," some might say.
I say, so what? Humility and simplicity without the Catholic Faith mean nothing. And Francis, The Talking Apostate hath not the Catholic Faith.
Q. Is this what you would have said at the Consistory?
BERGOGLIO: Yes. I would have spoken about these three key points.
Q. Nothing else?
BERGOGLIO: Nothing else… No, perhaps I would have mentioned two things of which there is need in this moment, there is more need: mercy, mercy and apostolic courage.
Q. What do they mean to you?
BERGOGLIO: To me apostolic courage is disseminating. Disseminating the Word. Giving it to that man and to that woman for whom it was bestowed. Giving them the beauty of the Gospel, the amazement of the encounter with Jesus… and leaving it to the Holy Spirit to do the rest. It is the Lord, says the Gospel, who makes the seed spring and bear fruit.
Q. In short, it is the Holy Spirit who performs the mission.
BERGOGLIO: The early theologians said: the soul is a kind of sailing boat, the Holy Spirit is the wind that blows in the sail, to send it on its way, the impulses and the force of the wind are the gifts of the Spirit. Without His drive, without His grace, we don’t go ahead. The Holy Spirit lets us enter the mystery of God and saves us from the danger of a gnostic Church and from the danger of a self-referential Church, leading us to the mission.
That means also overthrowing all your functionalist solutions, your consolidated plans and pastoral systems …
BERGOGLIO: I didn’t say that pastoral systems are useless. On the contrary. In itself everything that leads by the paths of God is good. I have told my priests: «Do everything you should, you know your duties as ministers, take your responsibilities and then leave the door open». Our sociologists of religion tell us that the influence of a parish has a radius of six hundred meters. In Buenos Aires there are about two thousand meters between one parish and the next. So I then told the priests: «If you can, rent a garage and, if you find some willing layman, let him go there! Let him be with those people a bit, do a little catechesis and even give communion if they ask him». A parish priest said to me: «But Father, if we do this the people then won’t come to church». «But why?» I asked him: «Do they come to mass now?» «No», he answered. And so! Coming out of oneself is also coming out from the fenced garden of one’s own convictions, considered irremovable, if they risk becoming an obstacle, if they close the horizon that is also of God.
This is valid also for lay people… (30Giorni | What I would have said at the Consistory (Interview with Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio by Sefania Falasca)
The danger of a self-referential Church?
Overthrowing all your functionalist solutions, your consolidated pastoral systems?
Coming out of oneself is also coming out from the fenced garden of one's own convictions, considered irremovable, if they risk becoming an obstacle, if they close the horizon that is also of God?
How is this not identical to what Joseph "Cardinal" Ratzinger, evoking the spirit of Hans Urs von Balthasar, wrote in Principles of Catholic Theology in 1982?
Does this mean that the Council should be revoked?
Certainly not. It means only that the real reception of the Council has
not yet even begun. What devastated the Church in the decade after the
Council was not the Council but the refusal to accept it. This becomes
clear precisely in the history of the influence of Gaudium et spes.
What was identified with the Council was, for the most part, the
expression of an attitude that did not coincide with the statements to
be found in the text itself, although it is recognizable as a tendency
in its development and in some of its individual formulations. The task
is not, therefore, to suppress the Council but to discover the real
Council and to deepen its true intention in the light of the present
experience. That means that there can be no return to the
Syllabus, which may have marked the first stage in the confrontation
with liberalism and a newly conceived Marxism but cannot be the last
stage. In the long run, neither embrace nor ghetto can solve for
Christians the problem of the modern world. The fact is, as Hans Urs von
Balthasar pointed out as early as 1952, that the "demolition of the
bastions" is a long-overdue task. (Joseph Ratzinger, Principles of Catholic Theology, p. 391.)
Pope Pius VIII, writing in his one and only encyclical letter, Traditi Humilitate Nostrae,
May 24, 1829, during his very brief pontificate warned us about those
such as Hans Urs von Balthasar, Joseph Ratzinger and Jorge Mario Bergoglio, men who have sought to "raze" the foundations of
Although God may console Us with you, We are nonetheless sad. This
is due to the numberless errors and the teachings of perverse doctrines
which, no longer secretly and clandestinely but openly and vigorously,
attack the Catholic faith. You know how evil men have raised
the standard of revolt against religion through philosophy (of which
they proclaim themselves doctors) and through empty fallacies devised
according to natural reason. In the first place, the Roman See is
assailed and the bonds of unity are, every day, being severed. The
authority of the Church is weakened and the protectors of things sacred
are snatched away and held in contempt. The holy precepts are despised,
the celebration of divine offices is ridiculed, and the worship of God
is cursed by the sinner. All things which concern religion are
relegated to the fables of old women and the superstitions of priests.
Truly lions have roared in Israel. With tears We say: "Truly they have
conspired against the Lord and against His Christ." Truly the impious
have said: "Raze it, raze it down to its foundations." (Pope Pius VIII, Traditi Humilitate Nostrae,
May 24, 1829.)
Francis the Talking Apostate is busted. Unfortunately for him, though, he does not realize this.
Q, What should one do?
BERGOGLIO: Look at our people not for what it should be but for what it is and see what is necessary. Without preconceptions and recipes but with generous openness. For the wounds and the frailty God spoke. Allowing the Lord to speak… In a world that we can’t manage to interest with the words we say, only His presence that loves us, saves us, can be of interest. The apostolic fervor renews itself in order to testify to Him who has loved us from the beginning.
Q. For you, then, what is the worst thing that can happen in the Church?
BERGOGLIO: It is what De Lubac calls «spiritual worldliness». It is the greatest danger for the Church, for us, who are in the Church. «It is worse», says De Lubac, «more disastrous than the infamous leprosy that disfigured the dearly beloved Bride at the time of the libertine popes». Spiritual worldliness is putting oneself at the center. It is what Jesus saw going on among the Pharisees: «… You who glorify yourselves. Who give glory to yourselves, the ones to the others». (30Giorni | What I would have said at the Consistory (Interview with Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio by Sefania Falasca).)
Generous openness to what? The devil, that's what.
Quoting De Lubac on spiritual worldliness, which means ridding the Catholic Church of the belief that she alone possesses truth and has the sole right from God to teach, govern and sanctify men?
You want another example?
Sure, below you will find an an excerpt from an speech Jorge Mario Bergoglio gave upon the release of Father Luis Guissani's The Attraction of Jesus that was republished in yet another Communion and Liberation magazine, Traces, which is based in Argentina:
The book presented today, El atractivo de Jesucristo,
is not a theological treatise, it is a dialogue of friendship; these
are table conversations between Father Guissani and his disciples. It is
not a book for intellectuals, but for people who are men and women. It
is the description of that initial experience, which I shall refer to
later on, of wonder which arises in dialogue about daily experience that
is provoked and fascinated by the exceptionally human and divine
presence and gaze of Jesus Christ. It is the story of a personal
relationship–intense, mysterious, and concrete at the same time–of an
impassioned and intelligent affection for the person of Jesus, and this
enables Fr. Giussani to come to the threshold, as it were, of Mystery,
to speak familiarly and intimately with Mystery.
Everything in our life, today just as in
Jesus’ time, begins with an encounter. An encounter with this Man, the
carpenter of Nazareth, a man like all men and yet different. The first
ones, John, Andrew, and Simon, felt themselves to be looked at into
their very depths, read in their innermost being, and in them sprang
forth a surprise, a wonder that instantly made them feel bound to Him,
made them feel different.
When Jesus asked Peter, “Do you love Me?”,
“his ‘Yes’ was not the result of an effort of will, it was not the fruit
of a ‘decision’ made by the young man Simon: it was the emergence, the
coming to the surface of an entire vein of tenderness and adherence that
made sense because of the esteem he had for Him–therefore an act of
reason;” it was a reasonable act, “which is why he couldn’t not say
We cannot understand this dynamic of
encounter which brings forth wonder and adherence if it has not been
triggered–forgive me the use of this word–by mercy. Only someone who has
encountered mercy, who has been caressed by the tenderness of mercy, is
happy and comfortable with the Lord. I beg the theologians who are
present not to turn me in to the Sant’Uffizio or to the Inquisition;
however, forcing things a bit, I dare to say that the privileged locus
of the encounter is the caress of the mercy of Jesus Christ on my sin.
In front of this merciful embrace–and I
continue along the lines of Giussani’s thought–we feel a real desire to
respond, to change, to correspond; a new morality arises. We posit the
ethical problem, an ethics which is born of the encounter, of this
encounter which we have described up to now. Christian morality is not a
titanic effort of the will, the effort of someone who decides to be
consistent and succeeds, a solitary challenge in the face of the world.
No. Christian morality is simply a response. It is the heartfelt
response to a surprising, unforeseeable, “unjust” mercy (I shall return
to this adjective). The surprising, unforeseeable, “unjust” mercy, using
purely human criteria, of one who knows me, knows my betrayals and
loves me just the same, appreciates me, embraces me, calls me again,
hopes in me, and expects from me. This is why the Christian conception
of morality is a revolution; it is not a never falling down but an
always getting up again. (The Attraction of the Cardinal.)
This is quintessentially Modernist as the Modernists taught that man's belief in God and His Divine Son spring forth from an inner impulse and not by virtue of having had the supernatural virtues of Faith, Hope, and Charity infused into his soul in the Sacrament of Baptism. Pope Saint Pius X dissected this heresy very well in Pascendi Dominci Gregis, September 8, 1907:
7. However, this Agnosticism is only the negative part of the system of the
Modernists: the positive part consists in what they call vital immanence. Thus
they advance from one to the other. Religion, whether natural or supernatural,
must, like every other fact, admit of some explanation. But when natural
theology has been destroyed, and the road to revelation closed by the rejection
of the arguments of credibility, and all external revelation absolutely denied,
it is clear that this explanation will be sought in vain outside of man himself.
It must, therefore, be looked for in man; and since religion is a form of life,
the explanation must certainly be found in the life of man. In this way is
formulated the principle of religious immanence. Moreover, the first actuation,
so to speak, of every vital phenomenon -- and religion, as noted above, belongs
to this category -- is due to a certain need or impulsion; but speaking more
particularly of life, it has its origin in a movement of the heart, which
movement is called a sense. Therefore, as God is the object of religion, we must
conclude that faith, which is the basis and foundation of all religion, must
consist in a certain interior sense, originating in a need of the divine. This
need of the divine, which is experienced only in special and favorable
circumstances. cannot of itself appertain to the domain of consciousness, but is
first latent beneath consciousness, or, to borrow a term from modern philosophy,
in the subconsciousness, where also its root lies hidden and undetected.
It may perhaps be asked how it is that this need of the divine which man
experiences within himself resolves itself into religion? To this question the
Modernist reply would be as follows: Science and history are confined within two
boundaries, the one external, namely, the visible world, the other internal,
which is consciousness. When one or other of these limits has been reached,
there can be no further progress, for beyond is the unknowable. In presence of
this unknowable, whether it is outside man and beyond the visible world of
nature, or lies hidden within the subconsciousness, the need of the divine in a
soul which is prone to religion excites -- according to the principles of
Fideism, without any previous advertence of the mind -- a certain special sense,
and this sense possesses, implied within itself both as its own object and as
its intrinsic cause, the divine reality itself, and in a way unites man with
God. It is this sense to which Modernists give the name of faith, and this is
what they hold to be the beginning of religion.
8. But we have not yet reached the end of their philosophizing, or, to speak
more accurately, of their folly. Modernists find in this sense not only faith,
but in and with faith, as they understand it, they affirm that there is also to
be found revelation. For, indeed, what more is needed to constitute a
revelation? Is not that religious sense which is perceptible in the conscience,
revelation, or at least the beginning of revelation? Nay, is it not God Himself
manifesting Himself, indistinctly, it is true, in this same religious sense, to
the soul? And they add: Since God is both the object and the cause of faith,
this revelation is at the same time of God and from God, that is to say, God is
both the Revealer and the Revealed. (Pope Saint Pius X, Pascendi Dominci Gregis, September 8, 1907.)
This is not a minor point at all. It is quite essential to
the entire belief system of concilairism. Luis Mario Bergoglio was only repeating what he had been taught by the late Father Luigi Guissani, a belief about man's "inner sense" and "relation to God" that has been propagated throughout the Joseph Ratzinger's entire priesthood.
The only substantive difference between Bergoglio and Ratzinger is that the latter attempted, at least sometimes, to put a sober face on his staging of the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo service. Bergoglio is a full-fledged child of the "papal" extravaganza "Masses" staged by Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II. Just take a little look see at this: Conga Liturgy in Argentina. For the inspiration of this so-called liturgy, please see Origins of the Conga Liturgy. (I know. I know. You're not supposed to have this much fun in Lent. I know.
One can see in this particular sacrilege, committed in 2011 at an outdoor venue, that Bergoglio violated the Novus Ordo's rubrics by "offering" the bread and wine at the same time even though the General Instruction to the Roman Missal specifies that they are to be offered separately. And the crucifix in the background appears to feature a resurrected corpus of Our Lord rather than a crucified one. The little snippet that I watched, though, indicates that this is simply garden-variety "inculturation of the Gospel" as prescribed in Paragraph 395 of the General Instruction to the Roman Missal:
395. Finally, if the participation of the faithful and their
spiritual welfare requires variations and more thoroughgoing adaptations
in order that the sacred celebration respond to the culture and
traditions of the different peoples, then Bishops' Conferences may
propose such to the Apostolic See in accordance with article 40 of the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy for introduction with the latter's consent, especially in the case of
peoples to whom the Gospel has been more recently proclaimed. The special norms given in the Instruction On the Roman Liturgy and Inculturation should be carefully observed.
Regarding procedures to be followed in this matter, the following should be followed:
In the first place, a detailed preliminary proposal should be set before
the Apostolic See, so that, after the necessary faculty has been
granted, the detailed working out of the individual points of adaptation
Once these proposals have been duly approved by the Apostolic See,
experiments should be carried out for specified periods and at specified
places. If need be, once the period of experimentation is concluded,
the Bishops' Conference shall decide upon pursuing the adaptations and
shall propose a mature formulation of the matter to the Apostolic See
for its decision. (Paragraph 395, General Instruction to the Roman Missal.)
Attorney James Bendell, who is a champion of the Catholic Faith, echoed my belief, expressed above, that Ratzinger had an aesthetic sense about him, stating that "With this guy we're likely to get trained seals with bicycle horns." Mr. Bendell, who is from New Jersey originally and shares my northeast humor and cultural references as were both born in that marvelous year of 1951, then sent a photograph of what a "Pope Francis" liturgy may look like in the near future:
See also: Turkish seal show. (The photograph and link were provided by Mr. Bendell, who was also the inspiration of the "Origins of the Conga Liturgy" link.)
Francis, the Talking Apostate is also an complete ecumaniac, something that can be shown below as the new conciliar "pontiff" was "blessed" in 2006 by Argentine Protestant televangelists:
Yes, that's the master apostate of the Capuchin Fathers, Father Raniero Cantalamessa, who specializes in the preaching of heresy to the heretics who have pretended to sit on the Throne of Saint Peter, standing as then "Cardinal" Bergoglio knelt to receive his "blessing" from the Protestant televangelists. What kind of "blessings" can Protestants give? Oh, well, those that come from the devil.
Speaking of the adversary, he has a great friend in "Pope" Francis, who has gone out of the way to pay his obeisance ancient enemies of the Catholic Faith in their Talmudic garb: Bergoglio Celebrates Hanukkah at Buenos Aires Synagogue, December of 2012. One will notice that the then false "cardinal" who is now the false "pontiff" was wearing a yarmulke. In other words, he is a South American version of Timothy Michael Dolan, and he has the credentials to prove that this is so.
Indeed, the new "pope" comes with a freshly Talmudic Seal of Approval from the pro-abortion, pro-perversity, Christophobic organization known as the Anti-Defamation League:
We congratulate the new Pope and wish him well in his important new responsibility. We believe that the election of Francis I is a significant moment in the history of the Church. We look forward to working with him to continue to foster Catholic-Jewish relations as we have with his predecessors. There is much in his record that reassures us about the future.
Under his leadership in Buenos Aires, Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio made important strides in maintaining positive Catholic-Jewish relations following the transformational papacies of Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI - pontiffs who launched historic reconciliation between the Catholic Church and the Jewish people.
Cardinal Bergoglio maintained a close relationship with the Jewish community in Argentina. He has celebrated various Jewish holidays with the Argentinian Jewish community, including Chanukah where he lit a candle on the menorah, attended a Buenos Aires synagogue for Slichot, a pre-Rosh Hashana service, the Jewish New Year, as well as a commemoration of Kristallnacht, the wave of violent Nazi attacks against Jews before World War II.
In 2010, during a commemoration of the 1994 bombing, Cardinal Bergoglio called it “a house of solidarity” and added “God bless them and help them accomplish their work,” which showed his dedication and support in standing up against extremism.
In 2010, he together with Argentinian Rabbi Abraham Skorka, published the book “On Heaven and Earth” addressing issues of interfaith dialogue. The new Pope’s sensitivity to the Jews emerges from this work in his comments on the Church’s approach to the Jewish people since Vatican II, the Holocaust and the Arab-Israeli conflict. (ADL Congratulates New Apostate Francis.)
Yes, you just can't get more Kosher than that, can you?
Let's have a little review as to why all of this is wrong. Just a little review, mind you:
Lastly, the beloved disciple
St. John renews the same command in the strongest terms, and adds
another reason, which regards all without exception, and especially
those who are best instructed in their duty: "Look to
yourselves", says he, "that ye lose not the things that ye have wrought,
but that you may receive a full reward. Whosoever revolteth, and
continueth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that
continueth in the doctrine the same hath both the Father and the Son. If
any man come to you and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into
your house, nor say to him, God speed you: for he that saith to him, God
speed you, communicateth with his wicked works". (2 John, ver. 8)
Here, then, it is manifest, that all fellowship with those who have not the doctrine of Jesus Christ, which is "a
communication in their evil works" — that is, in their false tenets, or
worship, or in any act of religion — is strictly forbidden, under pain
of losing the "things we have wrought, the reward of our labors, the
salvation of our souls". And if this holy apostle declares that the very
saying God speed to such people is a communication with their wicked
works, what would he have said of going to their places of worship, of
hearing their sermons, joining in their prayers, or the like?
From this passage the learned translators of the Rheims New Testament, in their note, justly observe, "That,
in matters of religion, in praying, hearing their sermons, presence at
their service, partaking of their sacraments, and all other
communicating with them in spiritual things, it is a great and damnable
sin to deal with them." And if this be the case with all in general, how
much more with those who are well instructed and better versed in their
religion than others? For their doing any of these things must be a
much greater crime than in ignorant people, because they know their duty
better. (Bishop George Hay, The Laws of God Forbidding All Communication in Religion With Those of a False Religion.)
The spirit of Christ, which dictated the Holy Scriptures, and the spirit which animates and guides the Church of Christ, and
teaches her all truth, is the same; and therefore in all ages her
conduct on this point has been uniformly the same as what the Holy
Scripture teaches. She has constantly forbidden her children to hold any
communication, in religious matters, with those who are separated from
her communion; and this she has sometimes done under the most
severe penalties. In the apostolical canons, which are of very ancient
standing, and for the most part handed down from the apostolical age, it
is thus decreed: "If any bishop, or priest, or deacon, shall join in prayers with heretics, let him be suspended from Communion". (Can. 44)
Also, "If any clergyman or laic shall go into the synagogue of the Jews, or the meetings of heretics, to join in prayer with them, let him be deposed, and deprived of communion". (Can. 63) (Bishop George Hay, ,who served as the Vicar Apostolic of the Lowland District of Scotland, mind you, my friends, from December 3, 1778, to August 24, 1805: The Laws of God Forbidding All Communication in Religion With Those of a False Religion.)
This being so, it is clear that the Apostolic See cannot on any
terms take part in their assemblies, nor is it anyway lawful for
Catholics either to support or to work for such enterprises; for if they
do so they will be giving countenance to a false Christianity, quite
alien to the one Church of Christ. Shall We suffer, what would indeed be
iniquitous, the truth, and a truth divinely revealed, to be made a
subject for compromise? For here there is question of defending
revealed truth. Jesus Christ sent His Apostles into the whole world in
order that they might permeate all nations with the Gospel faith, and,
lest they should err, He willed beforehand that they should be taught by
the Holy Ghost: has then this doctrine of the Apostles completely
vanished away, or sometimes been obscured, in the Church, whose ruler
and defense is God Himself? If our Redeemer plainly said that His Gospel
was to continue not only during the times of the Apostles, but also
till future ages, is it possible that the object of faith should
in the process of time become so obscure and uncertain, that it would
be necessary to-day to tolerate opinions which are even incompatible one
with another? If this were true, we should have to confess
that the coming of the Holy Ghost on the Apostles, and the perpetual
indwelling of the same Spirit in the Church, and the very preaching of
Jesus Christ, have several centuries ago, lost all their efficacy and
use, to affirm which would be blasphemy. But the Only-begotten Son of
God, when He commanded His representatives to teach all nations, obliged
all men to give credence to whatever was made known to them by
"witnesses preordained by God," and also confirmed His command with this
sanction: "He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he
that believeth not shall be condemned." These two commands of Christ,
which must be fulfilled, the one, namely, to teach, and the other to
believe, cannot even be understood, unless the Church proposes a
complete and easily understood teaching, and is immune when it thus
teaches from all danger of erring. In this matter,
those also turn aside from the right path, who think that the deposit of
truth such laborious trouble, and with such lengthy study and
discussion, that a man's life would hardly suffice to find and take
possession of it; as if the most merciful God had spoken
through the prophets and His Only-begotten Son merely in order that a
few, and those stricken in years, should learn what He had revealed
through them, and not that He might inculcate a doctrine of faith and
morals, by which man should be guided through the whole course of his
moral life. (Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos, January 6, 1928.)
Another day, another apostate.
Another day, another enemy of Christ the King and of the souls for whom He shed every single drop of His Most Precious Blood on the wood of the Holy Cross on Good Friday to redeem.
Although Jorge Mario Bergoglio is not a true and legitimate Successor of Saint Peter, which means that Latin America is still waiting for its first true pope on the Throne of Saint Peter, he is a Jesuit, the first of his order to claim, albeit falsely, the papacy. This makes relevant once again the following speculative prophecy provided the readers of this site by Mr. Michael Creighton that was cited originally in All Signs Point To Antichrist:
Mr. Creighton's Speculative Comment:
Old Italian Prophecy: "When the White Pope and the Black Pope shall
die during the same night, then there will dawn upon the Christian
nations the Great White Day."
If this prophecy to be taken literally, then we may
speculate that the white pope (Joseph Ratzinger) and black pope (Peter
Turkson is expected to be elected) may die on the same day and
Christendom will be restored. They are not true popes but called pope.
No, Peter Turkson did not get elected. However, a Jesuit did. And even though Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who is more Marian than his predecessor, is not nor has ever been the Father General of the Society of Jesus, he was the provincial of the Jesuit Fathers in Argentina and he is now, at least in a manner of speaking, the top Jesuit in the conciliar structures. Why is this relevant. Well, because the head Jesuit is called the "Black Pope."
How will Holy Mother Church be restored?
Miraculously, something that Mr. Creighton noted in his e-mail to me of eight days ago now:
This fits with prophecies about restoration after calamity:
Ven. Elizabeth Canori-Mora (d. 1825)
"St. Peter then chose the new pope. The Church was again organized..."
"... the sky was covered with clouds so dense and
dismal that it was impossible to look at them without dismay... the
avenging arm of God will strike the wicked, and in his mighty power he
will punish their pride and presumption. God will employ the powers of
hell for the extermination of these impious and heretical persons who
desire to overthrow the Church and destroy it's foundation. ....
Innumerable legions of demons shall overrun the earth and shall execute
the orders of Divine Justice... Nothing on the earth shall be spared.
After this frightful punishment I saw the heavens opening, and St. Peter
coming down again upon earth; he was vested in his pontifical robes,
and surrounded by a great number of angels, who were chanting hymns in
his honor, and they proclaimed him as sovereign of the earth. I saw also
St. Paul descending upon the earth. By God's command, he traversed the
earth and chained the demons, whom he brought before St. Peter, who
commanded them to return into hell, whence they had come.
"Then a great light appeared upon the earth
which was the sign of the reconciliation of God with man. The angels
conducted before the throne of the prince of the Apostles the small
flock that had remained faithful to Jesus Christ. These good and zealous
Christians testified to him the most profound respect, praising God and
thanking the Apostles for having delivered them from the common
destruction, and for having protected the Church of Jesus Christ by not
permitting her to be infected with the false maxims of the world. St.
Peter then chose the new pope. The Church was again organized..." (Prophecy of Ven. Elizabeth Canori-Mora (d. 1825) as recorded in Fr. Culleton's book The Prophets and Our Times, 1941 A.D. Imprimatur)
"After the three days of darkness, St. Peter and
St. Paul, having come down from Heaven, will preach in the whole world
and designate a new Pope. A great light will flash from their bodies and
will settle upon the cardinal who is to become Pope. Christianity,
then, will spread throughout the world. He is the Holy Pontiff, chosen
by God to withstand the storm. At the end, he will have the gift of
miracles, and his name shall be praised over the whole earth. Whole
nations will come back to the Church and the face of the earth will be
renewed. Russia, England, and China will come into the Church."
(Prophecy of Blessed Anna Maria Taigi (1769-1837 A.D.) who was Beatified
by Pope Benedict XV in 1920.)
Our days are indeed short. We do not
know the day or the hour of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour's Coming for us
at the end of our lives. To prepare for this terrible moment of our
Particular Judgments is never easy. It is even more difficult in these
days of apostasy and betrayal, which is why we must not only flee from
the false church of conciliarism but also be humble sheep to shepherds
who have been courageous enough to serve us despite all of the
humiliations that they must endure for doing so. We must be grateful for
having access to the daily offering of the Immemorial Mass of Tradition
offered by such shepherds and for having a refuge from a world of
insanity that flows from the abomination of desolation that is the Novus Ordo and its false doctrines and the paradoxes and contradictions contained within the conciliar
ethos that gave birth to it and is communicated by it, as witnessed by
the travesty that Bergoglio presided over in 2011.
Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus
Christ gave us His Most Blessed Mother to be our Mother as she stood so
valiantly by the foot of His Most Holy Cross as He shed every single
drop of His Most Precious Blood to redeem us. He has instructed her to
give Saint Simon Stock the Brown Scapular, which was worn with such
great priestly dignity by Saint John of the Cross, a true son of Carmel,
and to give Saint Dominic de Guzman her Most Holy Rosary and to give
Saint Catherine Laboure the Miraculous Medal. He has let His Most Blessed
Mother teach us through her apparition to Juan Diego that He wants the
entirety of the Americas converted to His Social Kingship as she is
honored publicly by men and their nations, and He has warned us through
her apparition at La Salette in France of impending doom in the Church
and the world as a result of the sins of men. And He has told His Most
Blessed Mother to console us with her Fatima Message, which is why we
really should be earnest in praying as many Rosaries each day as our
In the midst the chastisement that Our Lord desires us to suffer through at this time, we must pray to Saint Anthony, the Hammer of Heretics and a true son of Saint Francis of Assisi, to hammer Luis Mario Bergoglio into abandoning the conciliar religion to accept Catholicism in the holy integrity of its doctrines and liturgy. Saint Francis of Assisi hated heresy. The great Saint of Assisi who bore the brand marks of Our Crucified Lord on his holy body is thus very dishonored and defamed by a heretic taking his name as putative pope. Saint Anthony of Padua, Hammer of Heretics, hammer the truth into the apostate head of yet another talking apostate who has dared to take the holy name of your holy founder, Saint Francis of Assisi.
Remember, every Ave Maria we pray helps us to
prepare for the hour of our deaths as we seek to repair the damage
caused by our sins and those of the whole world. May we be generous in
praying our Rosaries as the consecrated slaves of Our Blessed Lord and
Saviour Jesus Christ through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary,
remembering, a true Charity demands, to pray fervently for the
conversion of the conciliar revolutionaries before they die. We must
never be unbent in our sins and we must never be unaware of how we must
give God the honor and glory that are His due as members of the Catholic
Church who have fled to the catacombs to seek true succor from true
bishops and true priests.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon!
Vivat Christus Rex! Viva Cristo Rey!
