Although the remote cause of all of the problems that exist in the world, whether individual or social, is Original Sin, which resulted in the darkening of the human intellect, the weakening of the human will and other overthrow of the higher rational faculties in favor of the lower sensual appetites, there are proximate causes of the world's problems, chief among these being the Actual Sins that men commit.
Fallen human nature inclines men to resist the truth, both supernatural and natural, and to act according to the dictates of their passions rather than to obey the immutable precepts of the Divine Positive Law and the Natural Law. Men have visited violence upon each other from the time that Cain slew his brother Abel, something that was pointed out in The 1990s Show That Won't End four days ago now.
The sins of men also take their toll upon the physical world, whose very balance and harmony were rent asunder by Original Sin and whose very climate is affected more by the darkness of the souls of men than by whatever physical pollutants are emitted into the atmosphere or various bodies of water. Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ condescended to conceived as a helpless embryo in the Virginal and Immaculate Womb of His Mother by the power of God the Holy Ghost at the Annunciation to "save creation." He came to save the souls of sinful men by paying back in His own Sacred Humanity during His Passion and Death on the wood of the Holy Cross on Calvary the debt of sin that was owed to him in His infinity God.
The Resident Pantheist at the Casa Santa, however, who has not uttered a word of protest, no less condemn, the courageous expose of Planned Barrenhood's barbarous ways, is going to have a "World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation" on Tuesday, September 1, 2015, the Feast of Saint Giles:
(Vatican Radio) At the end of his weekly General Audience on Wednesday, Pope Francis recalled that next Tuesday, September 1st, the Church will mark the first World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation. Following in the footsteps of the Orthodox Church, Catholics are encouraged to organize prayer and practical initiatives to combat the environmental crisis facing our planet.
Noting that local Churches around the world are planning events to reflect on the ways our lifestyles impact the environment, the Pope said he will be joining bishops, priests, religious and lay people from 5pm in St Peter's Basilica for a special Liturgy of the Word, which local people and visiting pilgrims are warmly invited to attend. (Jorge to Lead World Day of Prayer for Creation.)
As noted in my two-part series on Laudato Si (Dance, Dance, Eco Jorge part one, and Dance, Dance, Eco Jorge, part two), everything in the created world is going to be destroyed by God at the end of time. The world as we know it is passing away. It will be destroyed by fire. How sad it is that Jorge Mario Bergoglio, whose own soul is in great peril of eternal hellfire for all of his unspeakable crimes committed he has committed against the honor and glory and majesty of the Most Blessed Trinity and against the eternal and temporal good of human souls, which have been created by God and redeemed by the shedding of every single drop of His Most Precious Blood of His Co-Equal, Co-Eternal Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, Whose doctrine he continues to distort, mispresent, ignore and pervert with a reckless abandon that is truly of a diabolical nature.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio is one of history's greatest destroyers of the zenith of the beauty of God's creation, a human soul, which has been made in His very image and likeness, and he has let loose a veritable sea of moral destruction that would have made some of the worst barbarians that the world has ever known blush with shame. He is an enabler of the Actual Sins of men, thereby showing himself to be an enemy of souls and of the very created world for which he protests so much care and love, reaffirming adherents of every false religion on earth in paths that can lead them only to Hell, participating in a seemingly endless series of “inter-religious prayer” meetings and services, “prayed” out of the blasphemous Talmud with his Talmudic rabbi pal, the pro-abortion, pro-perversity, Abraham Skorka, muted his voice about the killing and displacement of Catholics and Orthodox Christians in the Middle East by the faithful adherents of the idolatrous false “prophet,” Mohammed, kept silent as national legislatures or courts have “legalized” “gay marriage” and then as various governments have sought to prosecute those who refuse to acknowledge this perversity as having any standing before God or men, and, among so many other things, hidden his pectoral cross under his fascia so as not to offend two Talmudic rabbis in Jerusalem.
Bergoglio has sent very clear signals about his embrace of moral relativism, which he terms “going to the existential peripheries” in the name of “mercy,” to reaffirm Catholics who are divorced and civilly “remarried” without a conciliar decree of nullity, thus making a mockery of the martyrdom of Saint John the Baptist and of the English and Irish martyrs who were steadfast to the point of their torture and death in defense of both Papal Primacy and the indissolubility of a ratified and consummated marriage, and to practitioners of the sin of Sodom, going so far as to meet privately with a woman who had herself mutilated surgically in order to “marry” another woman in the belief that she had become a man (see Mutilating All Truth).
This apostate dispenses “advice” to the lust-lorn that could have come from twin sisters, both deceased, who were born in Sioux City, Iowa (where a certain thirteen year-old we know and love was born), on July 4, 1918, named Esther Pauline Phillips and Pauline Esther Phillips, better known in life as “Ann Landers” and “Abigail Van Buren,” respectively. Wait! Bergoglio is giving the sort of advice given by “Eppie” Lederer and “Popo” Friedman (their respective married names) if one remembers that none other than Ann Landers was at the bedside of the lavender-friendly Joseph “Cardinal” Bernardin when he was dying in 1996 (see Didn't He Show Us the Way, to which I respond: He sure did. The way to hell for all eternity.)
Bergoglio has further enabled the Actual Sins of men by unleashing a slew of his conciliar “bishops” to wage a veritable war upon the virtue of chastity and upon those who dare call the sin of Sodom by its proper name and to remind one and all of its being condemned in Holy Writ, which was written under the direct inspiration and with the infallible guidance of the Third Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, God the Holy Ghost, and that this sin of perversely unnatural vice is one of the four sins that cry out to Heaven for vengeance. Bergoglio has emboldened so-called “theologians” in the lavender-filled nooks and crannies of the counterfeit church of conciliarism to come forth to assert that “stable” “same-sex” relationships can constitute a “quasi-sacrament.” This is crazy, not quasi.
Here is an excerpt of an interiew with one Stephen Goertz that was translated from the German language into English by those who run Novus Ordo Watch Wire:
Question: Then we might also possibly have to raise the question, however, that is now already being discussed in politics: to what extent matrimony is to be put on a par with gay or lesbian relationships.
Goertz: Differences can be recognized for what they are and yet be treated with equal esteem and respect. One could pose the theological question whether a committed, loving homosexual union, which sees itself as a relationship of faith in the God of Israel and Jesus, does not possess a sacramental character. Homosexual relationships could then find ecclesiastical recognition.
Question: Might this also take place by means of external signs one day, such as a blessing of homosexual couples?
Goertz: Even though I do not expect this to be discussed at the synod at this point already, theologically I do not see any problem there in principle. (As found at: Novus Ordo Watch Wire.)
Stephen Goertz, mind you, is considered to be a "moral theologian" as he endorses a form of perverse immorality that is opposed to nature itself. Then again, Goertz revealed also his belief that not enough was understood about "sexuality" when Judaism, Christianity and Islam "developed," meaning that Biblical Judaism, which ended with the expiatory death of Our Lord on the wood of the Holy Cross on Good Friday and the concurrent earthquake that shook so violently that it tore the certain in the Temple in Jerusalem in half from top to bottom, was not the means by which God had spoken infallibly and definitvely to prepare the world for the First Coming of the Divine Redeemer, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, Who merely started a religion that had to "develop" and "mature" over time. This is just classic Modernism's "evolution of doctrine," which was repackaged as "the hermeneutic of continuity" by the supposed "restorer of Tradition," Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, as applied to the natural moral order.
Goertz was right about one thing however when he noted that the "Second" Vatican Council (actually, the Sodomite Giovanni Enrico Antonio Maria/Paul the Sick's Humanae Vitae, July 25, 1968, which gave a "papal" seal of approval to interventions made about "family planning" at the false council at whose second and third sessions he presided) changed the purpose of the marital bond:
Question: In the book of Leviticus, sexual acts between people of the same sex are called “abominations” that are “punished with death”. That sounds rather clear.
Goertz: Here the context is that sexuality had to fulfill the primary purpose of ensuring the continuity of the race. This is obviously no longer our situation, and especially since the [Second Vatican] council no longer our sexual morality. That’s why individual quotes, taken out of context, cannot be used to answer a contemporary moral question. This would be a fundamentalist way of dealing with biblical passages. (As found at: Novus Ordo Watch Wire.)
Goertz, though wrong about Scriptural interpretation, is correct about the conciliar revolution's having changed the primary end of marriage, and this is a point that I made very thoroughly four years ago in Forty-Three Years After Humanae Vitae, Always Trying To Find A Way and Planting Seeds of Revolutionary Change.
Nothing will happen to Stephen Goertz. Nothing has happened to any conciliar "bishop" who is simply following Jorge's lead in completing the painting of everything about the conciliar church of conciliarism in shades of lavender and turquoise, mixed in, of course, with a liberal touch of "rainbow" colors for the sake of communicating "diversity" and "inclusiveness" and "mercy."
Come on, what can happen to Goertz or any number of other conciliar "bishops," including Marcus Buchel, whose dismissal of Biblical condemnations of sodomy was discussed in Willing Servants of Antichrist, part three, when Bergoglio keeps giving very clear signals that he is a member in "good standing" of the homosexual collective, which is not to say that he is one, only that he is a willing enabler of all things homosexual. He has gone far recently as to give his own "papal" "green light" to a lesbian who publishes children's books:
The hippos, kangaroos and penguins adorning the cover of Piccolo Uovo (Little Egg) give little hint of the political and religious storm the children’s book has caused. While following the adventures of an egg may seem harmless enough, its discovery of different family types – including same sex – has prompted a backlash by conservatives who accuse Italian author Francesca Pardi of promoting a pro-homosexuality gender theory.
In the book, the egg encounters a pair of gay penguins, lesbian rabbits successfully bringing up a family, as well as other family models, including a single parent hippo, a mixed race dog couple, and kangaroos that have adopted polar bear cubs.
The book, however, was met with disapproval by Venice’s new mayor, Luigi Brugnaro, who in June banned Piccolo Uovo and about 50 other titles from schools. The decision led more than 250 Italian authors to demand their own books be removed from the city’s shelves, a move one writer described as a “protest against an appalling gesture of censorship and ignorance”.
Now Pardi has found an unlikely supporter in Pope Francis, who through his staff has written to the author praising her work. “His holiness is grateful for the thoughtful gesture and for the feelings which it evoked, hoping for an always more fruitful activity in the service of young generations and the spread of genuine human and Christian values,” wrote Peter B Wells, a senior official at the Vatican secretariat of state.
The letter, dated 9 July and recently seen by the Guardian, was a response to a parcel of children’s books sent by Pardi to the pontiff in June. The collection from her publisher, Lo Stampatello, including seven or eight books which deal with lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender issues (LGBT), was accompanied by a heartfelt letter from the author describing the attacks she has come under in recent months.
“Many parishes across the country are in this period sullying our name and telling falsehoods about our work which deeply offends us,” she wrote. “We have respect for Catholics ... A lot of Catholics give back the same respect, why can’t we have the whole hierarchy of the church behind us?” (“Jorge sends letter praising gay children's book.)
Despite all of the efforts of the spinmeisters at the Press Office of the Holy See to deny the clear truth of the matter, Bergoglio knew exactly what he was going when he wrote his words of encouragement to the lesbian author just as surely as he knew full well that he did was doing in 2013 by telling a man that his homosexuality “did not matter,” when he telephoned an Argentine woman married to a civilly divorced man in 2014 (see Jorge Cooks the Books) and when he met with the mutant earlier this year.
Bergoglio is doing everything he can to desensitize Catholics to the truth about the nature of the family, and thus only natural for him to give encouragement to a lesbian who is doing so by means of supposed children’s books. The Jesuit lay revolutionary from Argentine may be a blaspheming heretic and an apostate. He does, however, know exactly what he is doing, and what he is doing comes from one source, the devil himself.
Moreover, the man considered to be “Pope Francis” by most people in the world, including those who “resist while recognizing” him in clear violation of Catholic doctrine (see Memo from Two Popes and Monsignor Joseph Clifford Fenton to Bishop Richard Williamson: No One Can Resist a True and Legitimate Successor of Saint Peter and Against Mentevacatism) has appointed men such as Blase Cupich to his upcoming “synod of bishops” to help him find “creative ways” to examine that which is fixed by God and is thus part of human nature: the family, an exercise which is nothing other than an attempt to break down the last remaining vestiges of the sensus Catholicus in the souls of those Catholics in the structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism who cannot bring themselves to admit that this is the Great Apostasy and that Jorge Mario Bergoglio is himself a precursor of Antichrist.
Cupich said the following on August 23, 2011, when he received the pallium that supposedly invested him, a layman, with the authority of a worthy successor, once removed, of Ann Landers’ dear friend, Joseph Bernardin:
Today’s readings also remind us that Peter serves as a witness to the full meaning of the resurrection. Notice how Peter senses instinctively that there is something new about this Jesus of Nazareth, he calls him “the Holy One of God”, which literally means the one who is alive with the creative life of God. Peter understands this fully when Jesus is raised from the dead, reminding us that the resurrection cannot be limited to an event that happened two thousand years ago. It is about the Risen Lord, whom Pope Francis constantly tells us, is always doing something new. This is how he puts it in The Joy of the Gospel, and I quote: “Jesus can always break through the dull categories with which we would enclose him, and he constantly amazes us with his divine creativity,” to the point that “new avenues arise, new paths of creativity open up, with different forms of expression, more eloquent signs, and words with new meaning for today’s world.” It occurs to me that the reading from Paul’s Letter to the Ephesians today is a good example of how the early Church experienced the newness brought about by the Risen Lord. Honestly, many preachers prefer to avoid this text, as it has a phrase that makes many squirm–especially men as they hear the words, “wives be submissive to your husbands.” What is overlooked, however, is the opening sentence that husbands and wives are to be subordinate to each other. They each are to become lowly, poor for each other. People in this era of the early Church would have found this quite astonishing, if not revolutionary. Subordination in a family was not a two way street at that time. Christ was doing something utterly new in the human family, changing how people understand their relationships with each other as family. With the upcoming synod, it is clear that the Holy Father is calling the Church to examine our categories of expression about what we believe and be open to new avenues and creativity when it comes to accompanying families. All of this has much to say to us in Chicago, that we not settle for solutions that no longer work, expressions that no longer inspire and ways of working that stifle creativity and collaboration. (Blase Blazes A Path for Adultery and Sodomy)
Time permits only a brief comment on Blase the Blazer’s distortion of Saint Paul’s Epistle to the Ephesians.
Saint Paul is indeed instructing wives to be submissive to their husbands, who are to surround their wives with love, premised first and foremost upon willing their eternal good while at the same time caring for them with tenderness and affection. This submission of wives their husbands the exact kind of submission of Holy Mother Church to her Divine Founder and Invisible Head, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ Himself, which Bishop Richard Challoner noted in his coimmentary on verse 24 of Chapter 5 of Saint Paul's Epistle to the Ephesians:
 Being subject one to another, in the fear of Christ.  Let women be subject to their husbands, as to the Lord:  Because the husband is the head of the wife, as Christ is the head of the church. He is the saviour of his body.  Therefore as the church is subject to Christ, so also let the wives be to their husbands in all things.  Husbands, love your wives, as Christ also loved the church, and delivered himself up for it:
 Church is subject to Christ: The church then, according to St. Paul, is ever obedient to Christ, and can never fall from him, but remain faithful to him, unspotted and unchanged to the end of the world. (Duoay-Rheims Challoner Bible.)
Father George Haydock commented similarly upon the same verses:
Ver. 23. For the husband is the head of the wife. Though St. Paul here speaks of a man, who is a husband, we may rather translate man than husband, being the same sentence and same words as 1 Corinthians xi. 3. where even the Protestant translation has, that the man is head of the woman. --- He (Christ) is the saviour of his mystical body, the Church: though some expound it, that the husband is to save and take care of his wife, who is as it were his body. (Witham)
Ver. 24. As the church is subject to Christ. The Church then, according to St. Paul, is ever obedient to Christ: and can never fall from him, but remain faithful to him, unspotted and unchanged to the end of the world. (Challoner) (Haydock's Catholic Bible Commentary, Ephesians 5:23-24.)
How can the clear comments of acknowledged scholars such as Bishop Richard Challoner and Father George Haydock be accepted as true without recognizing that the counterfeit church of concilairism is not the Catholic Church, that its “popes” have been enemies of Christ the King and His Sacred Deposit of Faith, and that it is irresponsible to pretend that the sort of doctrinal and moral errors, to say nothing of liturgical sacrileges and abominations, can never issue forth from His immaculate spouse, the Catholic Church?
The next article on this site, which may not be posted until September 1, 2015, the Feast of Saint Giles, given the lateness of this current article’s posting, will discuss the conciliar Vatican’s embrace of the man who is responsible, proximately speaking, for the very errors that have shaped its doctrines, liturgical rites, moral teachings and pastoral practices in the past nearly fifty-seven years: Martin Luther, who is getting a piazza named after him in the Eternal City, Rome, Italy.
For the moment, we must take to heart these words of Archbishop Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto when he was the Patriarch of Venice, Italy:
"How necessary it is to stir up again the spirit of faith, at a time when there is a growth of that malignant fever which would discredit everything and deny every dogma of revealed religion! How necessary it is at this present time when people are trying to dismiss the mysteries of our faith, when people are claiming to explain them--while Christ has demanded the submission of the intellect--when they are casting doubt on the most established prophecies, when they are denying the most manifest miracles, whey they are rejecting the sacraments, deriding pious practices, and discrediting the magisterium of the Church and her ministers!
Cardinal Sarto, clearly, had in mind not only the rationalists outside the Church, but also those who, inside the Church, were beginning to dismiss her dogmas because of their own historical presuppositions and their erroneous philosophies. Even if the name Modernism does not appear in this pastoral letter [dated May 21, 1895], Cardinal Sarto had identified its initial symptoms, as he had in Mantua. It was during this period, moreover, that he began to take notice of the works of [notorious Modernist] Alfred Loisy, "forcefully reproving the affirmations contrary to the faith," which they contained, as a witness in the beatification process tells us." (Yves Chiron, Saint Pius X: Restorer of the Church. Translated by Graham Harrison. Angelus Press, 2002, p. 95.)
With Pope Saint Pius X, we reject those who reject and mock the integrity of the Holy Faith no matter how many times a putative "pope" does and says things that have been condemned repeatedly by Holy Mother Church.
We must always cling to the spiritual weapons given us by Our Lady to fight the forces of the world, the flesh and the devil, the forces, that is, of Modernity in the world and Modernism in the counterfeit church of conciliarism, especially by praying as many Rosaries each day as our state-in-life permits.
Our Lady will help us to be ever ready to defend the honor and the glory of the Blessed Trinity to Whom she is Daughter, Mother, and Spouse. She will lead us to be ever mindful of making reparation for our own many sins by offering our daily penances to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through her own Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, ever desirous of spending time with her at Holy Mass and in front of her Divine Son's Real Presence in the Most Blessed Sacrament as a foretaste of the Heavenly glories that will await us if we die in a state of Sanctifying Grace as members of the Catholic Church.
The possession of the glory of the Beatific Vision in Heaven is our goal. And that goal cannot be achieved by a participation in or even silence about the apostasies, blasphemies and sacrileges of conciliarism.
