Dumbing Down the Papacy: 1976-2024

Jorge Mario Bergoglio has finally gotten around to dealing with "Archbishop" Carlo Maria Vigano, who has probably been on his "to do" list for six years now. 

The conciliar show trial that is about to take place is yet another reminder of the existence of false opposites within the counterfeit church of conciliarism as both the Jacobins/Bolshevik "ultra-progressives" and the Girondist/Menshevik "traditionalists" accept much of the conciliar revolution, including its inversion of the ends proper to Holy Matrimony. No one can be a "defender" of faith he does not possess, and to accept, as "Archbishop" Vigano does, the "teaching" of Giovanni Battista Enrico Antonio Maria Montini/Paul VI and Karol Joszef Wojtyla/John II about subordinating the proccreation and education of children to the "unitive" end of the good of the spouses and to believe, as Vigano does, that the dogmatic evolutionism and uber-ecueminism of Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict XVI was a defender of "tradition" disqualifies one from being a defender of Catholicism as, to quote Saint Robert Bellarmine, "." 

The first four pages or so of this commentary provides some purely speculative analysis as to why Senor Jorge is acting against Vigano now at the same time a study on redefining the exercise of Papal Primacy and the expected publication of a putative document that totally prohibits the staging of the modernized version of the Immemorial Mass of Tradition before reprising other material that has been included in other commentaries in the past.

There have been a few susbstantive and grammatical revisions made since this commentary was posted around nine hours ago.

Pray daily for the restoration of a true pope on the Throne of Saint Peter!

On the Nativity of Saint John the Baptist, June 24, 2024

Today's great feast, coming as it does six months, one day prior to Christmas Day, is only one of three in the liturgical calendar of the Catholic Church that commemorates a physical birth (or Nativity). Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ's Nativity in Bethlehem in celebrated on Christmas Day, December 25. Our Lady Nativity is celebrated on September 8. And Our Lord's Precursor, the son of Saint Elizabeth, Saint John the Baptist, is privileged to have his own Nativity celebrated this very day. This is a tremendous feast day in the life of the Catholic Church. 

Saint John the Baptist, the last of the Old Testament prophets, prepared the way for the coming of Our Lord prior to the assumption of His Public Ministry. Freed from Original Sin in the womb of his mother, Saint Elizabeth, who was Saint Anne's cousin, at the moment of Our Lady's Visitation, Saint John the Baptist preached fearlessly to convert sinners from their sinful ways and to prepare them to accept his Cousin, God Incarnate, as their Redeemer. He also knew that he had to decrease in stature in the world as Our Lord increased following His symbolic baptism in the Jordan River, during which, of course, God the Father sent a dove, symbolizing God the Holy Ghost, spoke to tell us in no uncertain terms, "This is My beloved Son, in Whom I am well pleased" (Matthew 3: 17), a proclamation that would God the Father repeated at Our Lord's Transfiguration (Matthew 17: 5).

Saint John the Baptist fearlessly proclaimed the truth. He lost his head for doing so. In like manner, of course, we must proclaim the truth, doing so out of fidelity to Our Lord as He has revealed Himself to His true Church, and in true Charity for the eternal good of others, recognizing at all times that we are but weak vessels of clay, full of faults and failings, who must make much reparation to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary for our sins.

It is not easy to speak truth to those in power. Saint John the Baptist knew this.

Those in power, such as King Herod the Tetrarch, who was married illicitly to his brother's wife even though his brother was still very much alive, frequently believe themselves to be beyond criticism and that each of their decisions are binding upon the consciences of all others, a power that Our Lord has given exclusively to true popes, who can indeed bind our consciences.

Those in civil power, however, tend to think of themselves as demigods whose musings on this or that subject carry great significance. No matter who the President of the United States of America is, for example, it is invariably the case that some sort variation of one false, naturalistic presupposition after another is supposed to be accepted by the populace as the foundation for the common good domestically and for peace internationally. These "demigods" can't possibly be wrong, of course. They believe that their shallow words and empty and sometimes contradictory statements are received from on high (actually, their words and actions come from below!) and anyone who dares to dissent from them is suspect of being a "domestic terrorist." 

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.

Jorge Mario Bergoglio: The Antithesis of the Holy Virtues of Saint John the Baptist

This very brief follow-up to today's other revised reflection based on prayers found in The Raccolta in honor of Saint John the Baptist, the last of the Old Testament Prophets. Readers will see that these beautiful prayers explain the holy mission of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour’s Precursor and Cousin and explain everything that Jorge Mario Bergoglio, an Anti-Saint John the Baptist, if you will, is not and will never be.

Antidotes to Pelagianism: Saints Paulinus of Nola and Saint Alban, the British Protomartyr

Given the fact that "Archbishop" Carlo Maria Vigano is to undergo a Vatican trial of schism (of which he is guilty, of course, as a true pope, who is the equivalent of a "bad" father or an errant civil leader, must be reverenced and obeyed, not disparaged and defied), I must once again suspend work on other projects to focus entirely on this new development, which comes fully six years after Vigano began his public criticism of Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who is not known for his patience with such types. 

Although I do not what, if anything, I can write that I have not written before, I will probably do some original writng by way of a preface and conclusion to observations made in other commentaries as the L'Affaire Vigano is simply yet another dog and pony show between the false opposites of Jacobins/Bolsheviks and Girondists/Mensheviks within the structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism. Side shows are entertaining, but they are designed by the adversary to distract the masses from the truth. 

For the moment, though, as we are in the madness of an election season that will a summit of sorts when the decreipt octogenarian in the White House, who I believe will be so pumped with various pharaceutical products to give him the veneer of being in charge of his faculties as to far exceed the expectations that most have for him, and the septuagenarian former occupant of the White House, who is prone to use his New York impatience with foolishness to sound shrill to the squeamish, I thought I would provide and excerpt from an article written last year about the former president's indictment in the classified documents case to note that the Pelagianism of the moment today was fought by Saint Paulinus of Nola, whose feast is observed universally on June 22, by Saint Alban, the British Protomartyr, whos feast is observed in some places. 

Pelagaianism at the root of the anti-Incarnational civil state of Modernity. This belief in human self-redemption must lead to the triumph of statism and practical atheism over the course of time, and this brief snippet from a commentary published a year ago today is meant to explain what I mean in this regard.

On the Feast of Saint Aloysius Gonzaga, S.J. (2024)

Saint Aloysius Gonzaga was a great lover of the Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in His Real Presence in the Most Blessed Sacrament and of Our Lady. Saint Aloysius was intensely united to the sufferings that Our Lord endured in His Passion and Death, offering up his own sufferings prior to death, sufferings that he contracted as a result of helping a man with the plague in Rome, in union with that of Our Lord's own Passion and Death.

Saint Aloysius was also devoted to the angels, which makes sense as he had an angelic purity of his own. We need to invoke his holy intercession to help us to have as a pure a heart as he did as we attempt to make reparation to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary for our own sins, especially any and all against Holy Purity.

As it was at the aforementioned Saint Aloysius School in Great Neck, New York, where I learned the truths of the Catholic Faith as they were taught with clarity by the Reverend Sisters of Mercy (and one lay teacher, Miss Greta McCarthy, a young Irish immigrant who knew the Holy Faith very well, who became Mrs. Greta Foley after the end of the 1961-1962 school year; she died in 2012), I owe Saint Aloysius so very much. I have been devoted to him from the time that I entered Kindergarten in September of 1956.

The late hours involved in the completions of new articles the past two weeks finally caught up with me after posting yesterday's commentary. Although I was kept busy with various projects that needed my attention in the organization of belongings following our move six weeks ago, I was simply too tired to complete my next commentary. Work will continue later today, Friday, June 21, 2024, and I hope to have it posted by tomorrow, Saturday, June 22, 2024, the Feast of Saint Paulinus of Nola (and, in some places, of the British protomartyr, Saint Alban) and also the fifty-fifth anniversary of my graduation from Oyster Bay High School, Oyster Bay, Long Island, New York.

There Is Really Nothing "New" Here, Boys and Girls

Headlines are being made about a recently released document by the conciliar Dicastery for Promoting Christian Unity concerning a “downgrading” of papal primacy in favor of false ecumenism and synodality. Stories written in tone of breathlessness and of disbelief have various people in the resist while recognize movement tearing their garments and gnashing their teeth.

All I can say to this is spare me the drama as there is nothing really “new” here, boys and girls.

Although it will take me a considerable amount of time, perhaps up to two solid weeks, to prepare a detailed analysis of the new document, “The Bishop of Rome,” as the text is long and require me to spent even more time than it took to complete my last two commentaries, I am dusting off material from past commentaries based on Joseph Alois Ratzinger’s view of papal primacy expressed in Principles of Catholic Theology and that received antipapal expression as Benedict XVI in The Ravenna Document, October 13, 2007, issued by the International Theological Commission, Karol Josef Wojtyla/John Paul II’s Ut Unum Sint, May 25, 1995, and an address that Walter “Cardinal” Kasper gave to Anglicans on May 24, 2002, to explain that the new document contains nothing substantially “new.” The only thing that is truly new, as such, is the fact that was once discussed in theoretical terms has become a plan for concrete action to make what most people think is the papacy a subordinate entity to the One World Ecumenical Church.

The Joke's on Those Who Think That Blaspheming Bergoglio is a True Pope, part two

The concluding part of this two-part series is an analysis of much of the Judeo-Masonic/Sillonist address that Jorge Mario Bergoglio gave on Friday, June 14, 2024, the Octave Day of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Commemoration of Saint Basil the Great, to the leaders of the nations that make us the G-7 conference. I am sorry that this took so long to complete. However, the work involved demanded a thoroughness that simply made the commentary impossible to complete in a short time frame.

Non-tax-deductible financial gifts are needed. Thank you

The Joke's on Those Who Think That Blaspheming Bergoglio is a True Pope, part one

I had intended to write another article about the myth of "brain death" and the human vivisection this myth makes possible.

However, Jorge Mario Bergoglio was very busy on Friday, June 14. 2024, the Octave Day of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Commemoration of Saint Basil the Great, as he addressed those who make their living a "comedians" and, thereafter, addressed those who do not realize that they are comedians at the G-7 meeting.

This part deals with the blaspheming "comedians" of what passes for "popular culture" and part two will deal with Jorge's address to the comedians posing as world leaders.

Once again, non-tax-deductible financial gifts are requested. (Perhaps no one is reading these articles? Oh, well!)

The Supreme Masters of Sophistry Strike Again!

The Supreme Court of the United States of America issued a unanimous decision in the case of Food and Drug Administration v. Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine yesterday, June 13, 2024, within the Octave of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Commemoration of Saint Anthony of Padua, stating the the Alliance for Hippocratic Medicine had no legal standing to challenge the FDA's approval of the human pesticide, RU-486 (and like baby-killing potions), in 2000 and its subsequent "revisions" that have permitted the widespread sale and distribution of a substance that it is lethal to preborn babies and also harmful to their bodies, both bodily and, much more importantly, spiritually.

I will go to work later today on my next commentary. My annual reflection on Saint Basil the Great was published about twelve minutes ago. Please scroll below.

On the [Commemorated] Feast of Saint Basil the Great

Today's republished article, which was written fourteen yeqrsago now and revised again in 2018, attempts to draw comparisons between Saint Basil the Great's battles with the Arians and our own battles with the lords of the counterfeit church of conciliarism and their apologists. I had forgotten, prior to re-reading the article, just how many little nuggets from Dom Prosper Gueranger's The Liturgical Year are contained in its text.

Here is one just nugget:

"Peace is just what Basil desired as much as anybody; but the peace for which he would give his life could be only that true peace left to the Church by our Lord. What he so vigorously exacted on the grounds of faith proceeded solely from his very love of peace. And therefore, as he himself tells us, he absolutely refused to enter into communion with those narrow-minded men who dread nothing so much as a clear, precise expression of dogma; in his eyes their captious formulas and ungraspable shiftings were but the action of hypocrites, in whose company he would scorn to approach God's altar. As to those miserably misled, 'Let the faith of our fathers be proposed to them with all tenderness and charity; if they will assent thereunto, let us receive them into our midst; in other cases, let us dwell with ourselves alone, regardless of numbers; and let us keep aloof from equivocating souls, who are not possessed of that simplicity without guile, indispensably required in the early days of the Gospel from all who would approach to the the faith. The believers, so it is written, had but one heart and one soul. Let those, therefore, who would reproach us for not desiring pacification, mark well who are the real authors of the disturbance and so not point the question of reconciliation on our side any more.'"(Dom Prosper Gueranger, O.S.B., The Liturgical Year.) 

The authors of disturbance today are not those of us who point out the errors and blasphemes and sacrileges of the conciliar "popes," including Jorge Mario Bergoglio, but those who are silent about and/or enable these offenses, a silence that prevails these days among so many "conservative" and "traditionally-minded" priests and presbyters in the structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism.

Oh, remember that the Ordering Books page contains links to purchase some of nine of my books that were published between 2019 and 2021.

A new commentary should be posed within ten mintues.

Also, once again, non-tax-deductible financial gifts are needed at this time.

Thank you.

May God have mercy on us all in this time of chastisement.

Our Lady of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, pray for us.

Saint Basil the Great, pray for us.
