In Death As In Life: The Antithesis of Christ the King
Thomas A. Droleskey
The hour is very early, around 1:45 a.m. on Ember Wednesday in Advent, December 19, 2012. I was busy working yesterday on my other project as I have been told by a professional web developer that I must "create traffic" by adding what are called "back links" in order to generate "hits" for Meeting the Mets: A Quirky History of a Quirky Team. Thus it is that I spent a bit of time writing a post about a recent development in the world of baseball, a post that winds up, of course, with an commentary about the insanity of paying men millions upon millions of dollars to play games.
Yes, the book is Catholic from beginning to end. Although there is a great deal of good baseball, complemented by a lot of quirky facts and amusing diversions, I know that the mainstream media will continue to pitch a "shut out" against the book even though a local sports radio show host in the Cincinnati, Ohio, area, enjoyed it thoroughly. You can help spread the word if you would be so kind as to do so. Thanks.
Anyhow, even though I wrote on my home page about twenty-four hours ago now that I did not think that there was any need to rework material that I had written in "Blessed" Paul The Sick sixty-four days ago now, it occurred to me that a few observations are in order prior to reviewing yet again the "heroic virtues" that distinguished the priestly and episcopal career of Giovanni Montini/Paul VI.
The first observation, and I promise that this will be brief, involves the rapid decomposition of the body of the second conciliar "pontiff" that I discussed in passing sixty-four days ago now.
An article in Salon, an online magazine controlled by those who adhere to the false opposite of the naturalist "left," seven and one-half years ago discussed the terrible smell that was emitted by the body of Paul the Sick after his death on August 6, 1978, as was displayed to the public in the Basilica of Saint Peter in the Vatican City State:
John Paul II will not be the first pope to decompose in public. In August of 1978, the body of Paul VI "took on a greenish tinge,"
and fans were installed in the Basilica to disperse the smell. Twenty
years earlier, a maverick doctor persuaded the Vatican to let him try an
experimental embalming technique on the body of Pope Pius XII, with disastrous consequences—the body turned black and disintegrated in the casket. Pope John XXIII, who died in 1963,
seems to have been treated better: When his embalmed body was
disinterred in 2001, it looked to be in pretty good shape. (Why didn't they embalm the pope?) [Thomas A. Droleskey note: Well, it turns out that Angelo Roncalli/John XXIII made sure to get himself a better embalming job than was done on Pope Pius XII in order to make it appear as though his body was incorrupt.]
The following thought occurred to me when corresponding with a Catholic writer about the rapid decomposition of Paul VI after his death. The dead body of Paul the Sick, who died on the Feast of the Transfiguration, was, if you think about it, the antithesis of the Transfigured Body of Our Lord on Mount Thabor. Our Lord's Body was glorified in the presence of Saint Peter and the sons of Zebedee, Saints John and James, with the glory that He had with the Father in Heaven from all eternity and that which He manifested after His Resurrection from the dead on Easter Sunday. The body of the false "pontiff," a man who was doctrinally, philosophically, liturgically and morally corrupt, decomposed quickly all on its own. The best that could be done with the body after the formaldehyde was pumped into it was to turn it into that greenish tint.
Yes, the man whom the late Father Vincent Bowes, O.C.D., said that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ had told him was both an Antipope and an Antichrist (see Bookended From Birth to Birth), had his quickly decomposed body testify in death that he was the antithesis of the Transfigured Body of Christ the King, Whose Social Kingship over men and their nations he completely rejected.
Perhaps fittingly, therefore, the man whose "heroic virtues" will be reprised, lifted whole out of "Blessed" Paul The Sick, in the appendix below, the man whose cause for "beatification" will advance officially tomorrow, December 20, 2012, the Vigil of Saint Thomas the Apostle, Giovanni Montini/Paul VI "accepted" an abstract portrait of himself that was displayed in Smithsonian magazine in April of 1977:
Smithsonian Magazine, April, 1977, Page 60-61
"Those great patrons of the arts, the Renaissance popes, usually commissioned the artist in their employ - Raphael, Titian, Velazquez - to paint their portraits. The result was some of the greatest paintings ever produced.
"Since then the practice has fallen off (along with the art of portraiture). So it was with some surprise that the world learned last fall that a portrait had been painted of Pope Paul VI, even though he did not commission it or, for that matter, sit for it. Moreover, it was in a semiabstract style unlike that of any previous papal portrait.
"The artist was a 42-year-old German named Ernst Gunter Hansing. Pope Paul did not at first respond to having his picture painted with any enthusiasm, but he later relented. Hansing was given a small studio in the building that houses the Vatican gas station, and for the next two and a half years, during 13 separate visits to Rome, he observed his subject from the front row at papal audiences.
"The finished portrait has been accepted by the Pope. His Holiness described the painting as "a mirror of the situation in the Church today." Earlier, on seeing a working sketch, he made what was probably his closest approach to art criticism. It was gracefully oblique: "One almost needs a new philosophy to grasp the meaning of this in its context."
From the Nov. 8, 1971 issue of TIME magazine:
Behind a locked door in Vatican City waits a present for Pope Paul VI that may conceivably please its recipient but has already shocked many who have seen photographs of it. The gift is a large (about 71 ft. by 12 ft.) portrait of His Holiness, painted in a semi-abstract mode, in which the Pope's emaciated, suffering face and folded hands are the focus of splintering shafts of light. German Painter Ernst Guenter Hansing, 42, sketched his subject during twelve protracted stays at the Vatican over a period of 21 years. Though he never had a private sitting, he was given a front-row seat at papal ceremonies in which to work. "I wanted more than just a picture of a person," says Hansing, a Lutheran. "I wanted to show the tension-fraught situation of the church, caught in a multiplicity of issues, as reflected in the countenance of the Pope." (Freaky Painting of Paul VI Celebrates 30 Years in the Vatican. See the Appendix B below for a list of the demonic symbols in this "portrait," which was described to me by one Catholic writer as an exercise in "art realism," that is to say, that it was a true portray of the inner Modernist, Montini. The list was provided me by a reader who was familiar with occult expert Craig Heimbichner's analysis of this portrait.)
Oblique? Giovanni Montini/Paul VI? The man who "suspended" Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre and nearly slapped him in the face could not call garbage by its proper name. To do so would have been to hurt the feelings of the Lutheran artist an thus to damage the cause of false ecumenism.
Then again, maybe Montini/Paul VI, a Modernist who was open to the modern in culture and whose very tomb, which is in a slanted position, was different than that of all true popes before him (and even different than that of Roncalli/John XXIII), really meant to try to "grasp the meaning" of the image of himself that he "accepted" to be displayed in the Vatican. The meaning of the Masonic and diabolical images found in the grotesque portrait of a man whose priestly and personal lives and false "pontificate" were grotesque from beginning to end was made clear to him at the moment of his death on August 6, 1978, as his mortal remains decomposed so rapidly that the Vatican spinmeisters at the time had to say that the cause was the "heat of the Mediterranean sun" (News & Archive section of Novus Ordo Watch for a photograph of the "pope" whose skin had blackened shortly after death. I vividly remember seeing this on television at the time.)
As the conciliar priest who coined the term Paul the Sick noted to me when we stood in front of Montini's tomb in the crypt of Saint Peter's Basilica in October 1984, "Everything about this man had to be modern. His doctrine. His philosophy. His taste in art and music and architecture. His liturgy. Yes, right down to this hideous tomb itself. Everything."

A life of sin? Yes, for those who don't know, please consider the following:
[Atila[ Guimarães quotes
Franco Bellegrandi, a former member of the Vatican Noble Guard, part of
the papal military corps, who witnessed the unfortunate changes that
occurred at the Vatican after Pope Paul VI took office.
Bellegrandi repeats the charge that while Archbishop of
Milan, Montini, dressed in civilian clothes, was picked up by the local
police on one of the archbishop's nocturnal visits to the male brothels
of the city.
The former Vatican guard describes the homosexual
colonization process that he says began under Pope John XXIII, but which
accelerated under Montini's rule--a process with [which] the reader
should by now be thoroughly familiar. Bellegrandi says that old
employees were turned out of their jobs at the Vatican to make room for
Montini's favored brethren afflicted with the same vice. They
in turn brought along their favorite catamites--"effeminate young men
wearing elegant uniforms and make-up on their faces to dissimulate their
beards," says Bellegrandi.
Bellegrandi says that he was told by an official of the Vatican
security service that Montini's actor friend was permitted free access
to the pontifical apartments and was seen taking the elevator late at
One of the statements made by Bellegrandi that attracted my attention
was that Montini no sooner took office than he was subject to blackmail
by Italian Freemasons. In exchange for their silence regarding
Archbishop Montini's furtive sojourns to Switzerland to rendezvous with
his actor-lover, who appears to have been quite open about his
relationship with the prelate, the Masons demanded that the pope
eliminate the Church's traditional ban on cremation after death. The pope complied. (Mrs. Randy Engel, The Rite of Sodomy, p. 1156)
An elderly gentleman from
Paris who worked as an official interpreter for high-level clerics at
the Vatican in the early 1950s told this writer that the Soviets
blackmailed Montini into revealing the names of priests whom the
Vatican had clandestinely sent behind the Iron Curtain to minister to
Catholics in the Soviet Union during the Cold War. The Soviet secret
police were on hand as soon as the priests crossed over the Russian
border and the priest infiltrators were either shot or sent to the gulag.
The extent to which Pope Paul VI was subject to blackmail by the
enemies of the Church will probably never be known. It may be that, in
so far as the Communists and the Socialists were concerned, blackmail
was entirely unnecessary given Montini's cradle to grave fascination and
affinity for the Left. On the other hand, the Italian Freemasons, M16,
the OSS and later the CIA and the Mafia were likely to have used
blackmail and extortion against Montini beginning early in his career as
a junior diplomat, then as Archbishop of Milan and finally as Pope Paul
There can be no question that Pope Paul VI's homosexuality was
instrumental in the paradigm shift that saw the rise of the Homosexual
Collective in the Catholic Church in the United States, at the Vatican
and around the world in the mid-20th century.
Pope Paul VI played a decisive role in the selection and
advancement of many homosexual members of the American hierarchy,
including Joseph Cardinal Bernardin, Terence Cardinal Cooke, John
Cardinal Wright and Archbishop Rembert Weakland and Bishops George H.
Guilfoyle, Francis Mugavero, Joseph Hart, Joseph Ferrario, James Rausch
and their heirs.
The knowledge that a homosexual sat in the Chair of Peter--knowledge
that spread like wild-fire on the "gay" gossip circuit--would certainly
have served as an inducement for homosexual men to aspire to the
priesthood and even prompt them to contemplate the unthinkable--a
religious order or community composed exclusively of sodomites.
Most important, the long-guarded quasi-secret of Paul VI's homosexual
life has, for decades, contributed to the silence and cover-up by the
American hierarchy on the issue of homosexuality in general and the
criminal activities of pederast priests in particular.
But it is a secret no longer.
The final piece of the puzzle has been put in place.
"Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us." Mrs. Randy Engel, The Rite of Sodomy, pp. 1156-1157)
Yes, sounds like a perfect candidate for "beatification" in the counterfeit church of conciliarism if the assembled non-cardinals give their approval to the "miracle" that took sixteen years to manifest itself and is based upon the diagnosis of a condition in an unborn child by doctors ever eager to convince women to kill their babies by claiming the existence of "problems" that simply do not exist. What could be better? A phony "pope" who lived a life of moral degradation with a phony "miracle" to speed him along the path fo a "beatification" even though his embalmed body turned black before it had been shown to the public and was said to reek of a horrible smell (something that was blamed on the heat of the Mediterranean sun beating down on the poor man's mortal remains)?
Sure, "Blessed" Paul the Sick will fit right in with Jose Maria Escriva Balaguer y Albas and Mother Teresa, a syncretist, and Antonio Rosmini, forty of whose propositions were condemned by Pope Leo XIII in 1887 only to be "rehabilitated" in 2001 by Joseph "Cardinal" Ratzinger (see Beatifying Their Own), and most notoriously, Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II (see "Beatifying" Yet Another Conciliar Revolutionary, "Canonizing" A Man Who Protected Moral Derelicts, Unimaginable Deceit and Duplicity, Not The Work of God, To Be Loved by the Jews, Perhaps Judas Was the First to Sing "A Kiss is Just a Kiss", Enjoy the Party, George, Enjoy the Party, and Anticlimactic "Beatification" for an Antipope).
What's next? Well, after Albino Luciani/John Paul I gets himself approved for "beatification," the only thing to do after this is to await the death of Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI so that his own "cause" for "canonization" could be introduced by his own successor. That way, you see, each of the five conciliar "popes" would carry with them a "seal of sanctity" with which conciliar apologists could bludgeon critics by saying irrationally, "These men were saints, not heretics and blasphemers as you keep insisting." That's why this is being done. Make no mistake about this whatsoever.
Mind you, I have just provided a summary of some of the more salient low lights that qualify Giovanni Montini to be "beatified" as "Blessed" Paul the Sick. For a more extensive analysis, including some of the correspondence that the late Abbe de Nantes, Georges de Nantes, who denounced the "Second" Vatican Council as soon as it was over in 1965 (see The Abbé de Nantes: Fidei Defensor), had with Montini/Paul VI, please see Paul VI Beatified?, by Father Luigi Villa.
Giovanni Montini/Paul VI was no kind of "virtuous" man, no less a Catholic. Montini/Paul VI, apart from living his life of sin and being a lifelong admirers of socialism, was a bitter and vindictive man who did not like to have his conscience singed by anyone. He reacted violently to criticism from the Abbe de Nantes and Bishop Antonio Castro de Mayer, nearly slapping Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre in the face when they had the following exchange in the Apostolic Palace on September 11, 1976:
Montini: "Why do yo not accept the Council? You signed the decrees."
Lefebvre: "There were two that I did not sign."
Montini: "Yes, two, religious liberty and Gaudium et Spes."
(Archbishop Lefebvre's mental note: "I thought at
the time: 'I signed the others out of respect for the Holy Father. He
[Montini] went on.")
Montini: "And why not religious liberty?"
Lefebvre: "It contains passages that are word for word contrary to what was taught by Gregory XVI and Pius IX."
Montini: "Let's leave that aside! We are not here to discuss theology."
(Archbishop Lefebvre's mental note: "I thought to myself: 'This is unbelievable.'") (Bishop Bernard Tissier de Mallerais, The Biography of Marcel Lefebvre, Kansas City, Missouri, Angelus Press, pp. 491-492.)
Word-for-word contrary to what was taught by Popes Gregory XVI and Pius IX. Concilairism is contrary to the Faith as, among other things, the "Cult of Man" can make no room for the Social Reign of Christ the King that was exemplified during the time in which lived the life of the saint whose feast we celebrate today, Saint Hedwig, the maternal aunt of Saint Elizabeth of Hungary, who was married to Henry, the duke of Poland:
Hedwige was illustrious for her royal descent, but
still more for the innocence of her life. She was maternal aunt to St.
Elizabeth, the daughter of the king of Hungary; and her parents were
Berthold and Agnes, Marquis and Marchioness of Moravia. From childhood
she was remarkable for her self-control, for at that tender age she
refrained from all childish sports. At the age of twelve, her parents
gave her in marriage to Henry, duke of Poland. She was a faithful and
holy wife and mother, and brought up her children in the fear of God. In
order the more freely to attend to God, she persuaded her husband to
make with her a mutual vow of continency. After his death, she was
inspired by God, whose guidance she had earnestly implored, to take the
Cistercian habit; which she did with great devotion in the monastery of
Trebnitz. Here she gave herself up to divine contemplation, spending the
whole time from sun-rise till noon in assisting at the holy Sacrifice.
The old enemy of mankind she utterly despised.
She would neither speak of worldly affairs, nor
hear them spoken of, unless the affected the interests of God for the
salvation of souls. All her actions were governed by prudence, and it
was impossible to find in them anything excessive or disorderly. She was
full of gentleness and affability towards all. She triumphed completely
over flesh by afflicting it with fasting, watching, and rough garments.
She was adorned moreover with the noblest Christian virtues; she was
exceedingly prudent in giving counsel; pure and tranquil in mind; so as
to be a model of religious perfection. Yet she ever strove to place
herself below all the nuns; eagerly choosing the lowest offices in the
house. She would serve the poor, on her knees, and wash and kiss the
feet of lepers, so far overcoming herself as not be repulsed by their
Her patience and strength of soul were admirable;
especially at the death of her dearly-beloved son, Henry duke of
Silesia, who fell fighting against the Tartars; for she thought rather
of giving thanks to God, than of weeping for her son. Miracles added to
her renown. A child, that had fallen into a mill-stream and was bruised
and crushed by the wheels, was immediately restore to life when the
saint was invoked. Many other miracles wrought by her having been duly
examined, Clement IV, enrolled her among the saints; and allowed her
feat to be celebrated on the fifteenth of October, in Poland, where she
is greatly honoured as patroness of the country. Innocent XI extended
her Office to the whole Church, fixing it on the seventeenth of October. (Dom Prosper Gueranger, The Liturgical Year.)
The once thoroughly Catholic
land of Poland (in which most of Silesia is located) is now littered with men claiming to be "bishops" who
have, following the example of Paul the Sick, renounced the Social Reign of Christ the King, good conciliarists
that they are, of course (see Distracting Us With More Side Shows, part three from 2010).
Our own country is littered with men claiming to be "bishops" who have
never accepted the Social Reign of Christ the King, men whose belief
that the insidious "market place of ideas" would help everyone,
including men such as Barack Hussein Obama, to find "common ground" has
made possible the legal institutionalization of various evils that they
are now powerless to resist. None of this can come from the
Catholic Church. Not one little bit of it. It came from the likes of Paul the Sick and his "successors," including the future "beatus," Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI if God does not intervene by then.
Yes, a world where Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus
Christ does not reign as King and where His Most Blessed Mother is not
honored as its Immaculate Queen is one where most every man will live
and think and act and speak naturalistically, not supernaturally
according to the Mind of the Divine Redeemer as He has discharged It
exclusively in the Catholic Church. The Faith must be shunted aside in
favor or the pursuit of wealth or popularity or career success or in
favor of this or than naturalistic"system" of economic, social and
political "order" to which which must be rendered an assent of faith and
a due submission of will at all times. And while there were other forces that have been at work in the world for nearly seven centuries that are certainly responsible for this situation, it is also true that the "reconciliation" by the likes of Angelo Roncalli/John XXIII and Montini and Luciani and Wojtyla and Ratzinger with the false principles of Modernity have made it possible for the last "bastions" of Catholicism against the world to be torn down. Only one who is willfully blind can ignore this truth.
We must grow in love more and more with God as He
has revealed Himself through His true Church. We will come to hate our
sins the more. We will seek to do voluntary penances for our sins and
those of the whole world. We will be more attentive to the needs of the
members of the Church Suffering in Purgatory. We will have more
apostolic zeal for the salvation of souls, seeking to distribute Green
Scapulars to those whom God's Holy Providence places in our paths each
day. We will live for the Faith, not for the passing things of this
We must be champions of Christ the King as His
consecrated slaves through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary,
never fearing the onslaughts of the figures of Antichrist that walk
amongst us as long as we pray the Holy Rosary every day as well as to
wear and to fulfill the conditions associated with the Brown Scapular of
Our Lady of Mount Carmel, making sure to make reparation for our own sins which are so responsible for worsening the state of the world and the state of the Church Militant in this time of apostasy and betrayal.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us.
