Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetro, the Islamophile, is unwilling to admit that faithful, orthodox Mohammedans carried out the bloody attacks in Paris, France, yesterday evening, Friday, November 13, 2015, the Feast of San Diego de Alcala (Saint Didacus) and the Commemoration (in some places) of Saint Stanislaus Kostka, that killed one hundred eighteen people in a “concert hall,” a place where some American “rock” band named Eagles of Death Metal was about to “perform” its diabolical noise, and forty others elsewhere in a series of coordinated attacks around the capital of once Catholic France, the eldest daughter of Holy Mother Church.
The reigning American caesar is unwilling to admit that the “tolerant” Judeo-Masonic Eurosocialist social engineers after whom he has modeled his “transformative” presidency have created the conditions that have made it possible for the Mohammedans they have welcomed with open arms to use the very instruments of “liberty, equality and fraternity” that they, the Eurosocialists, have celebrated since July 14, 1789, as weapons of mass terror and destruction. Europe, which has depopulated itself as a result of contraception, abortion and perverse sins in violation of the Sixth and Ninth Commandments, is awash in blood as a result of the overthrow of the Social Reign of Christ the King that was wrought by Martin Luther’s bloody revolution against the Divine Plan that God Himself instituted to effect man’s return to Him through His Catholic Church that the anti-Theistic revolutions of Modernity, including the French Revolution, have used to institute the “Reign of Man.” Behold the bloody results! Behold!
Yet it is that Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro champions the cause of “shared values” while stating that he does not know who is responsible for the terror attacks that have caused the bigamous adulterer who is President of the French Republic, Francois Hollande, a Catholic who became an atheist, to close the borders of France to one and all.
Here are our reigning Eurosocialist, Islamophbile caesar’s remarks, which will be interrupted by a few pointed interjections:
THE PRESIDENT: Good evening, everybody. I just want to make a few brief comments about the attacks across Paris tonight. Once again, we’ve seen an outrageous attempt to terrorize innocent civilians. This is an attack not just on Paris, it’s an attack not just on the people of France, but this is an attack on all of humanity and the universal values that we share. (Statement by the Caesar on the Situation in Paris.)
Interjection Number One:
An attack on “all of humanity and the universal values we share.”
Who cares about the humanity of the preborn child who is slaughtered with impunity under cover of the civil law in the United States and France and elsewhere in the so-called “civilized” world?The “universal values” shared by the likes of Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro and Francois Hollande champion the causes of “family planning, “diversity,” “tolerance,” “inclusion,” feminism, environmentalism, perversity and the cradle-to-grave statism that has led many European countries to the brink of economic disaster.
The “universal values” shared by the likes of Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro and Francois Hollande are also those of Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who is constantly exhorting in behalf of the madness of “dialogue” and “encounter” in the wake of Mohammedan attacks around the world, including as faithful, orthodox Mohammedans belonging to the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria blow up ancient Christian churches in Iraq and Syria and slaughter Christians by the hundreds, if not thousands.
Back to caesar’s statement of last evening:
We stand prepared and ready to provide whatever assistance that the government and the people of France need to respond. France is our oldest ally. The French people have stood shoulder to shoulder with the United States time and again. And we want to be very clear that we stand together with them in the fight against terrorism and extremism.
Paris itself represents the timeless values of human progress. Those who think that they can terrorize the people of France or the values that they stand for are wrong. The American people draw strength from the French people’s commitment to life, liberty, the pursuit of happiness. We are reminded in this time of tragedy that the bonds of liberté and égalité and fraternité are not only values that the French people care so deeply about, but they are values that we share. And those values are going to endure far beyond any act of terrorism or the hateful vision of those who perpetrated the crimes this evening. (Statement by the Caesar on the Situation in Paris.)
Interjection Number Two:
Once Catholic Paris has come to stand for the triumph of the “Rights of Man” as its philosophes and revolutionaries made war against the Rights of God and His Holy Church by putting to death thousands upon thousands of innocent human beings who were said to be “counter-revolutionaries.” Priests and consecrated religious were persecuted and killed. Members of the laity were persecuted and killed. The blood shed so tragically in Paris last evening, Friday, November 13, 2015, is but a continuation of the bloodletting that has been taking place in Paris ever since the storming of the Bastille on July 14, 1789, that inaugurated a supposedly “new era” to which the counterfeit church of conciliarism made its “official reconciliation” by means of Gaudium et Spes, December 7, 1965, the Feast of Saint Ambrose and the Commemoration of the Vigil of the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary:
Let us be content to say here that the text serves as a countersyllabus and, as such, represents on the part of the Church, an attempt at an official reconciliation with the new era inaugurated in 1789. Only from this perspective can we understand, on the one hand, the ghetto-mentality, of which we have spoken above; only from this perspective can we understand, on the other hand, the meaning of the remarkable meeting of the Church and the world. Basically, the word "world" means the spirit of the modern era, in contrast to which the Church's group-consciousness saw itself as a separate subject that now, after a war that had been in turn both hot and cold, was intent on dialogue and cooperation. From this perspective, too, we can understand the different emphases with which the individual parts of the Church entered into the discussion of the text. While German theologians were satisfied that their exegetical and ecumenical concepts had been incorporated, representatives of Latin American countries, in particular, felt that their concerns, too, had been addressed, topics proposed by Anglo-Saxon theologians likewise found strong expression, and representatives of Third World countries saw, in the emphasis on social questions, a consideration of their particular problems. (Joseph Ratzinger, Principles of Catholic Theology, pp. 381-382)
Pope Leo XIII denounced efforts to "reconcile the maxims of the Gospel with those of the revolution" that seeks to "reocncile Christ and Belial, the Church of God and the state without God":
Everyone should avoid familiarity or friendship with anyone suspected of belonging to masonry or to affiliated groups. Know them by their fruits and avoid them. Every familiarity should be avoided, not only with those impious libertines who openly promote the character of the sect, but also with those who hide under the mask of universal tolerance, respect for all religions, and the craving to reconcile the maxims of the Gospel with those of the revolution. These men seek to reconcile Christ and Belial, the Church of God and the state without God. (Pope Leo XIII, Custodi Di Quella Fede, December 8, 1892.)
Ah, the “reconciliation” celebrated by the “restorer of tradition,” Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, who eschewed the supposed more radical elements of the French Revolution as opposed to the American Revolution, which readers of this site undermined the integrity of the Holy Faith in this country by lulling Catholics into silence about their Faith in public in exchange for the ability to live without overt, state-sponsored persecution (noting that great acts of violence were committed by mobs against Catholics in this country in the Nineteenth Century), was nothing other than a reconciliation between Christ and Belial.
Paris had become a sewer of sacrilege and blasphemy in the three years before the French Constitution of 1792 and the three-year Reign of Terror that began in the same year.
Unspeakable acts of sacrilege occurred on the high altar of the Cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris had been committed in the name of the “Rights of Man” in the French Revolution’s violent war against God and sacred shrines
The relics of saints were treated the same contempt with which the Jews had treated Our Lord prior to their being burned in an effort to obliterate their memories and to rip out all devotion to them in the hearts of the “new citizen” in a land of “egalitarianism” where only those who agreed with the principles and tactics of the revolution had “equal rights” as these “new citizens.”
Paris was the see city, if you will, where women were encouraged to act, speak and to dress as men as contemporary feminism was born before coming to full maturation in the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia in 1917.
The heresies of “religious liberty” and “separation of Church and State,” although not entirely new as the former had been championed by the supposedly more “moderate” revolutionaries who had rebelled against King George III’s rule over the American colonies as the latter had been promoted by Martin Luther at the beginning of the Protestant Revolution to afford the princes who supported him the opportunity to govern in an amoral manner without fear of “Roman interference or interdict, replaced the Social Reign of Christ King and thus fostered the very conditions that had laid France to waste ever since.
Indecent, impure, immodest fashions have originated in Paris, bringing many men and women to both temporal and eternal ruin. Although, sadly, not a stranger to sin and debauchery even during the years of Christendom, the French Revolution brought forth a veritable celebration of sin and sacrilege that provided a model for the rest of the so-called “civilized world.”
Paris is truly the city where Judeo-Masonry’s Christophobia came into its own in the name of “liberty,” “equality” and “fraternity” as the blood of thousands upon thousands was shed to make any thought of a true return to Christendom impossible.
Barack Hussein Obama’s celebration of the wicked contributions of Paris, of course, calls to mind the comments that the Francophile anti-Catholic named Thomas Woodrow Wilson made to the then Father Francis Clement Kelley, who met with him on behalf of the American bishops to plead the case for the Catholics being slaughtered by the Masons in Our Lady’s country, Mexico, in the second decade of the Twentieth Century:
Wilson replied [in 1915, to Father Francis Clement Kelley, who was a representative of James Cardinal Gibbons, the Archbishop of Baltimore, for whom Wilson had such contempt that he addressed him as Mister Gibbons]: 'I have no doubt but that the terrible things you mention have happened during the Mexican revolution. But terrible things happened also during the French revolution, perhaps more terrible things than have happened in Mexico. Nevertheless, out of that French revolution came the liberal ideas that have dominated in so many countries, including our own. I hope that out of the bloodletting in Mexico some such good yet may come.'
"Having thus instructed his caller in the benefits which must perforce accrue to mankind out of the systematic robbery, murder, torture and rape of people holding a proscribed religious conviction, the professor of politics [Wilson] suggested that Father Kelley visit Secretary of State Williams Jennings Bryan, who expressed his deepest sympathy. Obviously, the Wilson administration was committed to supporting the revolutionaries (Robert Leckie American and Catholic, Doubleday, 1970, pp. 274.)
The bloodletting that began in the French Revolution has produced a monstrous state of affairs in France that Pope Pius VI denounced as such in 1792, twenty-two years before his predecessor, Pope Pius VII, denounced religious liberty as enshrined in the French Constitutional Charter of 1814:
The necessary effect of the constitution decreed by the Assembly is to annihilate the Catholic Religion and, with her, the obedience owed to Kings. With this purpose it establishes as a right of man in society this absolute liberty that not only insures the right to be indifferent to religious opinions, but also grants full license to freely think, speak, write and even print whatever one wishes on religious matters – even the most disordered imaginings. It is a monstrous right, which the Assembly claims, however, results from equality and the natural liberties of all men.
But what could be more unwise than to establish among men this equality and this uncontrolled liberty, which stifles all reason, the most precious gift nature gave to man, the one that distinguishes him from animals?
After creating man in a place filled with delectable things, didn’t God threaten him with death should he eat the fruit of the tree of good and evil? And with this first prohibition didn’t He establish limits to his liberty? When, after man disobeyed the command and thereby incurred guilt, didn’t God impose new obligations on him through Moses? And even though he left to man’s free will the choice between good and evil, didn’t God provide him with precepts and commandments that could save him “if he would observe them”? …
Where then, is this liberty of thinking and acting that the Assembly grants to man in society as an indisputable natural right? Is this invented right not contrary to the right of the Supreme Creator to whom we owe our existence and all that we have? Can we ignore the fact that man was not created for himself alone, but to be helpful to his neighbor? …
“Man should use his reason first of all to recognize his Sovereign Maker, honoring Him and admiring Him, and submitting his entire person to Him. For, from his childhood, he should be submissive to those who are superior to him in age; he should be governed and instructed by their lessons, order his life according to their laws of reason, society and religion. This inflated equality and liberty, therefore, are for him, from the moment he is born, no more than imaginary dreams and senseless words.” (Pope Pius VI, Brief Quod aliquantum, March 10, 1791; Religious Liberty, a “Monstrous Right“).
France has not recovered from the revolutionary spirit that overtook her in 1789 and was unleashed again and again with great fury in 1830, 1848, and 1871. The anti-Theistic revolution undertaken in the name of the "people" and the "rights of man" was a violent outpouring of hatred of God and His Catholic Church. As mentioned earlier in this commentary relics of countless saints, including the patron saint of Paris, Saint Genevieve, and Saint Vincent de Paul were destroyed by the fierce hatred of these revolutionaries for anything to do with the true Faith, a revolutionary zeal against all things authentically Catholic that is shared by none other than the Jacobin named Jorge Mario Bergoglio.
To the third except from Caesar Obama/Soetoro’s remarks of last evening, Friday, November 13, 2015:
We’re going to do whatever it takes to work with the French people and with nations around the world to bring these terrorists to justice, and to go after any terrorist networks that go after our people.
We don’t yet know all the details of what has happened. We have been in contact with French officials to communicate our deepest condolences to the families of those who have been killed, to offer our prayers and thoughts to those who have been wounded. We have offered our full support to them. The situation is still unfolding. I’ve chosen not to call President Hollande at this time, because my expectation is that he’s very busy at the moment. I actually, by coincidence, was talking to him earlier today in preparation for the G20 meeting. But I am confident that I’ll be in direct communications with him in the next few days, and we’ll be coordinating in any ways that they think are helpful in the investigation of what’s happened.
This is a heartbreaking situation. And obviously those of us here in the United States know what it’s like. We’ve gone through these kinds of episodes ourselves. And whenever these kinds of attacks happened, we’ve always been able to count on the French people to stand with us. They have been an extraordinary counterterrorism partner, and we intend to be there with them in that same fashion.
I’m sure that in the days ahead we’ll learn more about exactly what happened, and my teams will make sure that we are in communication with the press to provide you accurate information. I don’t want to speculate at this point in terms of who was responsible for this. It appears that there may still be live activity and dangers that are taking place as we speak. And so until we know from French officials that the situation is under control, and we have for more information about it, I don’t want to speculate.
Thank you very much. (Statement by the Caesar on the Situation in Paris.)
This lawless supporter of child-killing here and everywhere else in the world, this demagogue who has widened the gulf between the races, sought to delegitimize all opposition to his statist policies on the part of his hapless enablers in the organized crime family of naturalism of the false opposite of the naturalist “right,” thumbed his nose at the Constitution and the laws enacted by Congress to protect the territorial integrity of the United States of America and imposed a draconian takeover of the American health industry, already a merchant of death in its own bloody right, in the name of “compassion,” while trying to make the Little Sisters of the Poor to permit a third-party insurance carrier to provide "family planning" services to their employees, does not know what happened last night.
Unfortunately for the man who blamed the carefully planned and orchestrated attack on the American facility in Benghazi, Libya, that took place on Tuesday, September 11, 2012, on a motion picture that mocked Mohammedanism while knowing full well that the film had nothing to do with the attack, we do know what happened last night in Paris:
The carnage inside the music venue ended around midnight local time when French police stormed inside, killing three Kalashnikov-toting gunmen who witnesses said wore flak jackets as they slaughtered horrified spectators. The victims had gathered to see the American rock band Eagles of Death Metal, and a handful managed to escape to tell of the horror taking place inside where the killers shouted "This is for Syria!" and "Alahu Akhbar!" as they cut down patrons from a balcony before the band took the stage.
One man was reportedly arrested, and Twitter accounts linked to ISIS celebrated the attacks, but no terror organizations immediately claimed responsibility. A gunman at one of the attacks, at Petit Cambodge, a Cambodian restaurant in the city's fashionable 10th arrondisement, was also reportedly heard shouting "This is for Syria!" as he sprayed gunfire at horrified patrons, witnesses said. Another attack took place at a Forum Des Halles, a shopping mall. It was unclear how many people were kiled at each of the attacks. (DEADLY PARIS TERROR ATTACKS More than 150 are believed to be dead after terrorist gunmen conduct a series of coordinated cold-blooded assaults in several crowded sites.)
Caesar Obama/Soetoro does not want to admit what he knows: that it was Mohammedans, not “right wing domestic terrorists” (viz. those who oppose the chemical and slaughter of the innocent preborn in their mothers’ wombs and those who “homophobes” who oppose the promotion and the commission of the sin of Sodom), who were responsible for what happened last evening in Paris, France.
Naturally, the Occupy Vatican movement itself does not want to use the words “Islamic terrorism” as to do so would be to offend their partners in the diabolical exercise that goes by the names of “encounter” and “dialogue” which is supposed to teach those who have such “minor” differences about belief in the Sacred Divinity of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour how to “encounter” each other while learning more about the “other”:
Just hours after dozens of people were killed in a spate of violence in Paris Friday night, the Holy See joined other nations in condemning the attacks.
“We are shocked by this new manifestation of maddening, terrorist violence and hatred which we condemn in the most radical way together with the Pope and all those who love peace,” said a statement released Friday evening in Rome by the Vatican spokesman, the Rev. Federico Lombardi.
“We pray for the victims and the wounded, and for all the French people,” it continued. “This is an attack on peace for all humanity, and it requires a decisive, supportive response on the part of all of us as we counter the spread the homicidal hatred in all of its forms.”
A spokesman for the Holy See said Pope Francis had been informed of the attacks. (Vatican Condemns Terrorism and Hatred in Paris.)
Hey, I thought that Jorge Mario Bergoglio said that Our Lord never “condemns,” that He can only show love? (See Condemning Himself to Hell Every Day, part two.)
Ah, I guess that applies only to sins against the Sixth and Ninth Commandments and to overt terrorist attacks as Bergoglio, for example, has never condemned the “gay marriage” law in France or the Belgian legislature’s enactment of a bill last year making child-killing up to the age of eighteen a legal fact of life. The Argentine Apostate is too busy condemning those who deny “climate change” and who are opposed to the sort of “open borders” policy embraced by the likes of Obama/Soetoro and most European leaders, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, that have let the terrorists they condemn now and again into the “tolerant” countries of the West in order to use their hypocritical “toleration” against them to engage in wanton acts of raw terror.
While the deaths of those killed in Paris last evening are certainly tragic, it is also tragic that one hundred eighteen human souls redeemed by the shedding of every single dropped of the Most Precious Blood of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ spent their final moments on earth before they faced their Divine Judge, Christ the King, at their Particular Judgments preparing to watch and listen to music from hell itself performed by some band called “Eagles of Death Metal.” While we pray for the souls of those who were killed last night, including fifty or so killed in other venues in Paris, spending one’s time in a supposed concert hall to listen to the hellish noise that is “rock music” performed by a band whose title includes the word “death” is a tragedy in and of itself that no one in the secular media will term as such.
As always, of course, it is important to understand root causes, both remote and proximate, which is what the late Father Denis Fahey did in The Mystical Body of Christ in the Modern World as he explained how the diabolical "Declaration of the Rights of Man," proclaimed in France 1789 and expanded in 1793, was the polar opposite of the Divine Plan that God Himself instituted to effect man's return to Him through the Catholic Church:
By the grace of the Headship of the Mystical Body, our Lord Jesus Christ is both Priest and King of redeemed mankind and, as such, exercises a twofold influence upon us. Firstly, as a Priest, He communicates to us the supernatural life of grace by which we, while ever remaining distinct from God, can enter into the vision and love of the Blessed Trinity. We can thus become one with God, not, of course, in the order of substance or being, but in the order of operation, of the immaterial union of vision and love. The Divine Nature is the principle of the Divine Vision and Love, and by grace we are ‘made partakers of the Divine Nature.’ This pure Catholic doctrine is infinitely removed from Masonic pantheism. Secondly, as King, our Lord exercises an exterior influence on us by His government of us. As King, He guides and directs us socially and individually, in order to dispose all things for the reception of the Supernatural Life which He, as Priest, confers.
Society had been organized in the thirteenth century and even down to the sixteenth, under the banner of Christ the King. Thus, in spite of deficiencies and imperfections, man’s divinization, through the Life that comes from the sacred Humanity of Jesus, was socially favoured. Modern society, under the influence of Satan, was to be organized on the opposite principle, namely, that human nature is of itself divine, that man is God, and, therefore, subject to nobody. Accordingly, when the favourable moment had arrived, the Masonic divnization of human nature found its expression in the Declaration of the Rights of Man in 1789. The French Revolution ushered in the struggle for the complete organization of the world around the new divinity–Humanity. In God’s plan, the whole organization of a country is meant to aid the development of a country is meant to aid the development of the true personality of the citizens through the Mystical Body of Christ. Accordingly, the achievement of true liberty for a country means the removal of obstacles to the organized social acceptance of the Divine Plan. Every revolution since 1789 tends, on the contrary, to the rejection of that plan, and therefore to the enthronement of man in the place of God. The freedom at which the spirit of the revolution aims is that absolute independence which refuses submission to any and every order. It is the spirit breathed by the temptation of the serpent: ‘For God doth know that in what day soever you shall eat thereof, your eyes shall be opened; and you shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.’ Man decided then that he would himself lay down the order of good and evil in the place of God; then and now it is the same attitude. (Father Denis Fahey, The Mystical Body of Christ in the Modern World, p. 27.)
The “freedoms” let loose by means of the French Revolution included that of blaspheming Christ the King and His Most Blessed Mother, something that Charlie Hebdo, itself the victim of a Mohammedan terrorist attack in January of this year, did eleven months ago when publishing a satirical cartoon just before Christmas. No one is “free” to blaspheme the Divine Redeemer and His Most Blessed Mother. As tragic as the murders of Stepahne Charbonnier and his coworkers at Charlie Hebdo were earlier this year, it is entirely possible that the true God of Divine Revelation used infidels to punish them for their blasphemy against Him and Our Lady.
One of the saddest commentaries of our times is that Mohammedans, adherents of a false, blasphemous religion that was born in violence and bloodshed, are more outraged about blasphemies committed against their false “prophet,” Mohammed, than Catholics are about blasphemies committed against Our Lord and Our Lady and the Holy Faith in the name of “freedom of the press” and “freedom of speech.” Believing Mohammedans take the precepts of their false religion quite seriously, and those precepts teach them to kill to avenge their false “prophet.” Far too many Catholics in the world, having been brainwashed by conciliarism’s “opening to the world,” enjoy blasphemous attacks on Our Lord, Our Lady, Saint Joseph and everything to do with the Holy Faith.
Then again, it is entirely unsurprising that Catholics accept blasphemies against the Divine Redeemer and His Most Immaculate Mother in the name of “freedom of the press” and “freedom of speech” when their “popes” and “bishops” have given them a steady stream of blasphemous words and sacrilegious actions over the course of fifty-six years.
How is it possible for ordinary Catholics to recognize and reject blasphemy when the men who are their “leaders” are blasphemers and countenance blasphemy, indecency, immodesty and vice under cover of the civil of law and all throughout what passes for “popular culture.” The situation is so bad today that Catholics don’t even think about making reparation for acts of blasphemy against Our Lord, Our Lady and Holy Mother Church.
Unlike Mohammedans and other infidels, Catholics do not seek to kill those who blaspheme the true God of Divine Revelation, the Most Blessed Trinity, although it was once the case in Catholic France that such blasphemers were punished by the civil authority (noting that Saint Louis IX accepted papal correction from Pope Clement IV for the harsh measures he, Saint Louis, had taken against blasphemers). Catholics seek to pray for the conversion of those who blaspheme as they spend time in prayer, if possible, before the Most Blessed Sacrament and to Our Lady, especially through her Most Holy Rosary, for their conversion and to make reparation for these offenses against the Divine majesty.
Pope Pius VII, who had been the prisoner of the man who exploited the “principles” of the French Revolution, Napoleon Bonaparte, explained what would happen in France because of the religious liberty granted by the Constitutional Charter that had been approved by King Louis XVIII at the behest of the Congress of Vienna in 1814:
For how can We tolerate with equanimity that the Catholic religion, which France received in the first ages of the Church, which was confirmed in that very kingdom by the blood of so many most valiant martyrs, which by far the greatest part of the French race professes, and indeed bravely and constantly defended even among the most grave adversities and persecutions and dangers of recent years, and which, finally, that very dynasty to which the designated king belongs both professes and has defended with much zeal - that this Catholic, this most holy religion, We say, should not only not be declared to be the only one in the whole of France supported by the bulwark of the laws and by the authority of the Government, but should even, in the very restoration of the monarchy, be entirely passed over? But a much more grave, and indeed very bitter, sorrow increased in Our heart - a sorrow by which We confess that We were crushed, overwhelmed and torn in two - from the twenty-second article of the constitution in which We saw, not only that "liberty of religion and of conscience" (to use the same words found in the article) were permitted by the force of the constitution, but also that assistance and patronage were promised both to this liberty and also to the ministers of these different forms of "religion". There is certainly no need of many words, in addressing you, to make you fully recognize by how lethal a wound the Catholic religion in France is struck by this article. For when the liberty of all "religions" is indiscriminately asserted, by this very fact truth is confounded with error and the holy and immaculate Spouse of Christ, the Church, outside of which there can be no salvation, is set on a par with the sects of heretics and with Judaic perfidy itself. For when favour and patronage is promised even to the sects of heretics and their ministers, not only their persons, but also their very errors, are tolerated and fostered: a system of errors in which is contained that fatal and never sufficiently to be deplored HERESY which, as St. Augustine says (de Haeresibus, no.72), "asserts that all heretics proceed correctly and tell the truth: which is so absurd that it seems incredible to me." (Pope Pius VII, Post Tam Diuturnas, April 29, 1814, POST TAM DIUTURNAS)
Pope Saint Pius X, writing to condemn the complete separation of Church and State in France in 1905, explained the bitter consequences would befall the French people by refusing to submit humbly to the Social Reign of Christ the King as It must be exercised by His true Church:
17. The vague and ambiguous-wording of some of its articles places the end pursued by our enemies in a new light. Their object is, as we have already pointed out, the destruction of the Church and the dechristianization of France, but without people's attending to it or even noticing it. If their enterprise had been really popular, as they pretend it to be, they would not have hesitated to pursue it with visor raised and to take the whole responsibility. But instead of assuming that responsibility, they try to clear themselves of it and deny it, and in order to succeed the better, fling it upon the Church their victim. This is the most striking of all the proofs that their evil work does not respond to the wishes of the country.
18. It is in vain that after driving Us to the cruel necessity of rejecting the laws that have been made -- seeing the evils they have drawn down upon the country, and feeling the universal reprobation which, like a slow tide, is rising round them -- they seek to lead public opinion astray and to make the responsibility for these evils fall upon Us. Their attempt will not succeed.
19. As for Ourselves, We have accomplished Our duty, as every other Roman Pontiff would have done. The high charge with which it has pleased Heaven to invest Us, in spite of Our unworthiness, as also the Christian faith itself, which you profess with Us, dictated to Us Our conduct. We could not have acted otherwise without trampling under foot Our conscience, without being false to the oath which We took on mounting the chair of Peter, and without violating the Catholic hierarchy, the foundation given to the Church by our Savior Jesus Christ.
We await, then, without fear, the verdict of history. History will tell how We, with Our eyes fixed immutably upon the defense of the higher rights of God, have neither wished to humiliate the civil power, nor to combat a form of government, but to safeguard the inviolable work of Our Lord and Master Jesus Christ. It will say that We have defended you, Our beloved sons, with all the strength of Our great love; that what We have demanded and now demand for the Church, of which the French Church is the elder daughter and an integral part, is respect for its hierarchy and inviolability of its property and liberty; that if Our demand had been granted religious peace would not have been troubled in France, and that, the day it is listened to that peace so much desired will be restored in the country.
20. And, lastly, history will say, that if, sure beforehand of your magnanimous generosity. We have not hesitated to tell you that the hour for sacrifice had struck, it is to remind the world, in the name of the Master of all things, that men here below should feed their minds upon thoughts of a higher sort than those of the perishable contingencies of life, and that the supreme and intangible joy of the human soul on earth is that of duty supernaturally carried out, cost what it may and so God honored, served and loved, in spite of all. (Pope Saint Pius X, Une Fois Encore, January 6, 1907.)
The verdict of history is clearly on the side of the great Pope Saint Pius X. Pope Saint Pius X manfully defended the Social Reign of Christ the King that has been abandoned and flushed down the Orwellian memory hole by the conciliar revolutionaries. The conciliar “popes” have celebrated the triumph of the very false principles condemned by our true popes and that have been championed by the lords of Modernity, including those of the ever-so-tolerant France of revolutionary principles who have welcomed Mohammedans into their country with great liberality only to suffer liberally at their hands.
Prophetically, Pope Saint Pius X condemned the efforts on the part of The Sillon to “reconcile” the “spirit of the French Revolution” with the Catholic Faith. Pope Saint Pius X’s prophetic words condemned conciliarism’s adoption of The Sillon’s “spirit of reconciliation” that have seen conciliar “popes” and “cardinals” extol Mohammedanism and is “role” to promote “religion” in civil society:
Here we have, founded by Catholics, an inter-denominational association that is to work for the reform of civilization, an undertaking which is above all religious in character; for there is no true civilization without a moral civilization, and no true moral civilization without the true religion: it is a proven truth, a historical fact. The new Sillonists cannot pretend that they are merely working on “the ground of practical realities” where differences of belief do not matter. Their leader is so conscious of the influence which the convictions of the mind have upon the result of the action, that he invites them, whatever religion they may belong to, “to provide on the ground of practical realities, the proof of the excellence of their personal convictions.” And with good reason: indeed, all practical results reflect the nature of one’s religious convictions, just as the limbs of a man down to his finger-tips, owe their very shape to the principle of life that dwells in his body.
This being said, what must be thought of the promiscuity in which young Catholics will be caught up with heterodox and unbelieving folk in a work of this nature? Is it not a thousand-fold more dangerous for them than a neutral association? What are we to think of this appeal to all the heterodox, and to all the unbelievers, to prove the excellence of their convictions in the social sphere in a sort of apologetic contest? Has not this contest lasted for nineteen centuries in conditions less dangerous for the faith of Catholics? And was it not all to the credit of the Catholic Church? What are we to think of this respect for all errors, and of this strange invitation made by a Catholic to all the dissidents to strengthen their convictions through study so that they may have more and more abundant sources of fresh forces? What are we to think of an association in which all religions and even Free-Thought may express themselves openly and in complete freedom? (Pope Saint Pius X, Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910.)
Conciliarism’s respect for the false principles of “liberty, equality, fraternity” have played a very significant role in de-Catholicizing France. The contraception and abortion of the Holy Faith in this once great Catholic kingdom led French Catholics to practice contraception and to have abortions to such an extent that a need for non-French workers, including were Mohammedans who came from formerly French colonies or territories after having fought for France against various independence movements, arose. The Mohammedans thus were able to vanquish France by means of lax immigration laws and the cowardice of her own agnostic politicians, thus winning by means of public policies and by procreation what they had lost to Charles Martel at the Battle of Tours (Poitiers) on October 10, 732.
Pope Pius X explained in Pascendi Dominici Gregis, September 8, 1907, that Modernism leads ultimately to the triumph of all false religions in the world, thus paving the way for the triumph of the secularism heralded by the lords of Judeo-Masonry in the world and the scions of conciliarism alike:
How far this position is removed from that of Catholic teaching! We have already seen how its fallacies have been condemned by the Vatican Council. Later on, we shall see how these errors, combined with those which we have already mentioned, open wide the way to Atheism. Here it is well to note at once that, given this doctrine of experience united with that of symbolism, every religion, even that of paganism, must be held to be true. What is to prevent such experiences from being found in any religion? In fact, that they are so is maintained by not a few. On what grounds can Modernists deny the truth of an experience affirmed by a follower of Islam? Will they claim a monopoly of true experiences for Catholics alone? Indeed, Modernists do not deny, but actually maintain, some confusedly, others frankly, that all religions are true. That they cannot feel otherwise is obvious. For on what ground, according to their theories, could falsity be predicated of any religion whatsoever? Certainly it would be either on account of the falsity of the religious .sense or on account of the falsity of the formula pronounced by the mind. Now the religious sense, although it maybe more perfect or less perfect, is always one and the same; and the intellectual formula, in order to be true, has but to respond to the religious sense and to the believer, whatever be the intellectual capacity of the latter. In the conflict between different religions, the most that Modernists can maintain is that the Catholic has more truth because it is more vivid, and that it deserves with more reason the name of Christian because it corresponds more fully with the origins of Christianity. No one will find it unreasonable that these consequences flow from the premises. But what is most amazing is that there are Catholics and priests, who, We would fain believe, abhor such enormities, and yet act as if they fully approved of them. For they lavish such praise and bestow such public honor on the teachers of these errors as to convey the belief that their admiration is not meant merely for the persons, who are perhaps not devoid of a certain merit, but rather for the sake of the errors which these persons openly profess and which they do all in their power to propagate. (Pope Saint Pius X, Pascendi Dominici Gregis, September 8, 1907.)
Pope Saint Pius X’s description of Modernism’s respect for false religions has been demonstrated by each of the conciliar “popes” as they have lavished upon heretics and infidels without distinction.
In particular, of course, the conciliar “popes” have gone to great lengths to indemnify Talmudists and Mohammedans in their murderous ways, refusing to accept any claim that violence is inherent in each. The conciliar “popes” and “bishops,” echoing the likes of Presidents George Walker Bush and Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro, have called Mohammedanism a “religion of peace” that is “defamed” by supposed “extremists” who are, of course, nothing other than faithful, believing disciples of the false “prophet” Mohammed.
As we know, of course, believing Mohammedans, however, are not interested in “coexistence.” They are interested in conquest, nothing else, and to this end they are taking full advantage of the blindness of both the lords of Modernity in the world and those of Modernism in the counterfeit church of conciliarism. The ultimate expression of this conquest will be nothing short of Rome itself, which has already become the seat of Antipopes, who are preparing the way very able for the coming of Antichrist himself.
As we know so very well, the conciliar revolutionaries are celebrating the virtual conquest of Europe by the Mohammedans, using the slogan of "multiculturalism" to do so, going so far as to praise the "inculturation" of Mohammedanism on the soil of once Catholic Europe. The conciliar "bishops" of Italy have been particularly aggressive in this regard lately. Here is a reminder of what transpired in Turin, Italy, over four years ago now:
The second meeting of delegates from the Bishops Conferences in Europe for relations with Muslims in Europe took place in Turin (Italy) from May 31 to June 2, 2011. The Council of the Bishops’ Conferences of Europe (known by its French initials CCEE) brings together the presidents of the 33 European bishops’ conferences. Presiding over this meeting was Cardinal Jean-Pierre Ricard, Archbishop of Bordeaux and vice-president of the CCEE. Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, President of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, was also present.
On June 1, Archbishop Maroun Lahham, Archbishop of Tunis, spoke, emphasizing that the number of initiatives from the Muslim side in the Islamic-Christian dialogue is clearly increasing. “In this there is an overcoming of a psychology of fear or doubt with regard to a topic,” he remarked somewhat optimistically. Archbishop Lahham does not forget that there are violent demonstrations when an Islamic personage or dogma is called into question (caricatures of Muhammad, the pope’s lecture in Regensburg….), while noting that this sort of violent action is becoming less frequent. But he declared: “the family, the school and the mosque do not educate people in a basic view of equality between Arab Christian and Arab Muslim.” Later in his talk he added, “We must not forget that Islam presents itself as a unique, all-encompassing system in which everything is related (faith, worship, family, children, morality, prophet, economic life, inheritance, etc.). Therefore it is enough to touch just one point in this larger system, and Islam per se feels that is it threatened or offended.” In the same way, the notion of religious freedom has quite different meanings for Christians and Muslims. According to Abp. Lahham, “In Muslim countries (with rare exceptions), the Christian minorities have freedom of worship, in other words, the freedom to practice their faith, in private and in public. Now the Christian concept of religious freedom, especially after Vatican II, means freedom of conscience, in other words, the freedom to choose one’s religion or to choose not to have any religion.”
After this second meeting, the delegates of the Bishops’ Conference published a newsletter online on the CCEE’s website. The bishops confirm that the Catholic Church is following with much interest the “progressive enculturation of Islam in Europe, with a tendency to manifest more its religious and moral than its political dimension.” And that “in order to provide their religious leaders – imams or teachers – with a theological and cultural formation that will allow them suitably to play their religious role in the European context.” In the perspective of the creation of a chair of Islamic theology in the State universities, the Church – they go on to say – is in favor of confessional teaching of religion in public schools being made available to other religious traditions, including Islam.
The bishops candidly declare that they “share with sympathy in the expressions of a desire for democracy, freedom, and of a call for respect of persons, of which the youth from different Arab countries have made themselves the promoters during these months of great political changes, and they express a wish that the process underway may lead to the establishment of a true freedom of religion in these countries, so that Arabian Christians may also enjoy this freedom in the context of an egalitarian citizenship.” – Which only goes to show that, far from what Archbishop Lahham claims, freedom of religion is not guaranteed to the Christian minorities in these countries.
These delegates next claim to have made “a critical evaluation of the term ‘islamophobia’ used to describe the reactions of hostility towards Islam”, and to prefer the terms ‘fear’ and ‘hostility’. They also “exhort Muslims to form positive and transparent relations”…in order to dissipate a hostile attitude towards them. To conclude, the bishops repeated “their conviction that the Catholic Church will pursue the dialogue with the Muslims with renewed commitment, in the footsteps of Vatican Council II and following the teaching of Benedict XVI”, in which Christians and Muslims are finally called to express their faith sincerely without imposing it. – No comment.
One goal among others of the Counsel of the Episcopal Conferences of Europe (CCEE), is to assure the exercise of collegiality in the hierarchical communion cum et sub romano pontifice; the promotion of the new evangelization on the European level; the support for the ecumenical collaboration in Europe, and to reestablish the unity of Christians. These meetings generally take place every three years, and examine the principal questions related to evangelization and the enculturation of the Gospel in the European context. (sources: ccee/apic – DICI#236, June 11, 2011) (Conciliar "Bishops" in Italy Favor "Inculturation of Islam" in Europe.)
Rather than call for prayers and sacrifices to effect the conversion of non-Catholics such as Talmudists and Mohammedans, the “popes” and “bishops” of the counterfeit church of conciliarism have extolled the “virtues” of those who are said to believe in the “one God” without believing that He is a Trinity of Divine Persons and as they blaspheme the Holy Name of Jesus and His Most Blessed Mother.
This is how the ever-insane Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who is about to embark on a trip Africa that may make him a victim of Mohammedan terrorism as the French government issued a statement before last night's attacks in Paris that it could not guarantee the antipope's safety when he travels to the Central African Republic on Wednesday, November 25, 2015 (see French troops 'cannot protect' Jorge in Central African Republic), addressed Mohamemdans during Ramadan in 2013:
To Muslims throughout the World
It gives me great pleasure to greet you as you celebrate ‘Id al-Fitr, so concluding the month of Ramadan, dedicated mainly to fasting, prayer and almsgiving.
It is a tradition by now that, on this occasion, the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue sends you a message of good wishes, together with a proposed theme for common reflection. This year, the first of my Pontificate, I have decided to sign this traditional message myself and to send it to you, dear friends, as an expression of esteem and friendship for all Muslims, especially those who are religious leaders.
As you all know, when the Cardinals elected me as Bishop of Rome and Universal Pastor of the Catholic Church, I chose the name of “Francis”, a very famous saint who loved God and every human being deeply, to the point of being called “universal brother”. He loved, helped and served the needy, the sick and the poor; he also cared greatly for creation.
I am aware that family and social dimensions enjoy a particular prominence for Muslims during this period, and it is worth noting that there are certain parallels in each of these areas with Christian faith and practice.
This year, the theme on which I would like to reflect with you and with all who will read this message is one that concerns both Muslims and Christians: Promoting Mutual Respect through Education.
This year’s theme is intended to underline the importance of education in the way we understand each other, built upon the foundation of mutual respect. “Respect” means an attitude of kindness towards people for whom we have consideration and esteem. “Mutual” means that this is not a one-way process, but something shared by both sides.
What we are called to respect in each person is first of all his life, his physical integrity, his dignity and the rights deriving from that dignity, his reputation, his property, his ethnic and cultural identity, his ideas and his political choices. We are therefore called to think, speak and write respectfully of the other, not only in his presence, but always and everywhere, avoiding unfair criticism or defamation. Families, schools, religious teaching and all forms of media have a role to play in achieving this goal.
Turning to mutual respect in interreligious relations, especially between Christians and Muslims, we are called to respect the religion of the other, its teachings, its symbols, its values. Particular respect is due to religious leaders and to places of worship. How painful are attacks on one or other of these!
It is clear that, when we show respect for the religion of our neighbours or when we offer them our good wishes on the occasion of a religious celebration, we simply seek to share their joy, without making reference to the content of their religious convictions.
Regarding the education of Muslim and Christian youth, we have to bring up our young people to think and speak respectfully of other religions and their followers, and to avoid ridiculing or denigrating their convictions and practices.
We all know that mutual respect is fundamental in any human relationship, especially among people who profess religious belief. In this way, sincere and lasting friendship can grow.
When I received the Diplomatic Corps accredited to the Holy See on 22 March 2013, I said: “It is not possible to establish true links with God, while ignoring other people. Hence it is important to intensify dialogue among the various religions, and I am thinking particularly of dialogue with Islam. At the Mass marking the beginning of my ministry, I greatly appreciated the presence of so many civil and religious leaders from the Islamic world.” With these words, I wished to emphasize once more the great importance of dialogue and cooperation among believers, in particular Christians and Muslims, and the need for it to be enhanced.
With these sentiments, I reiterate my hope that all Christians and Muslims may be true promoters of mutual respect and friendship, in particular through education.
Finally, I send you my prayerful good wishes, that your lives may glorify the Almighty and give joy to those around you. Happy Feast to you all! (Francis the Self-Caricaturist to Muslims for end of Ramadan: Promoting Mutual Respect through Education.)
Consider also what Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI said in 2012 when he visited Lebanon:
Only in this way can there be growth in understanding and harmony between cultures and religions, and in genuine mutual esteem and respect for the rights of all. In Lebanon, Christianity and Islam have lived side by side for centuries. It is not uncommon to see the two religions within the same family. If this is possible within the same family, why should it not be possible at the level of the whole of society? The particular character of the Middle East consists in the centuries-old mix of diverse elements. Admittedly, they have fought one another, sadly that is also true. A pluralistic society can only exist on the basis of mutual respect, the desire to know the other, and continuous dialogue. Such dialogue is only possible when the parties are conscious of the existence of values which are common to all great cultures because they are rooted in the nature of the human person. This substratum of values expresses man’s true humanity. These values are inseparable from the rights of each and every human being. By upholding their existence, the different religions make a decisive contribution. It cannot be forgotten that religious freedom is the basic right on which many other rights depend. The freedom to profess and practise one’s religion without danger to life and liberty must be possible to everyone. The loss or attenuation of this freedom deprives the person of his or her sacred right to a spiritually integrated life. What nowadays passes for tolerance does not eliminate cases of discrimination, and at times it even reinforces them. Without openness to transcendence, which makes it possible to find answers to their deepest questions about the meaning of life and morally upright conduct, men and women become incapable of acting justly and working for peace. Religious freedom has a social and political dimension which is indispensable for peace! It promotes a harmonious life for individuals and communities by a shared commitment to noble causes and by the pursuit of truth, which does not impose itself by violence but rather “by the force of its own truth” (Dignitatis Humanae, 1): the Truth which is in God. A lived faith leads invariably to love. Authentic faith does not lead to death. The peacemaker is humble and just. Thus believers today have an essential role, that of bearing witness to the peace which comes from God and is a gift bestowed on all of us in our personal, family, social, political and economic life (cf. Mt 5:9; Heb 12:14). The failure of upright men and women to act must not permit evil to triumph. It is worse still to do nothing. (Meeting with members of the government, institutions of the Republic, the diplomatic corps, religious leaders and representatives of the world of culture (May 25th Hall of the Baabda Presidential Palace, 15 September 2012.)
We can see how detached heretics such as Ratzinger and Bergoglio and their fellow conciliar fiends are from the reality of Mohammedanism as they cling to myths about this “religion of peace” and a belief in “dialogue” and “understanding” that are propagated equally by the likes of Obama/Soetoro and those who serve under him in the most politically “correct” administration in the history of the United States of America. They are as one in seeking to blame a “radicalized Islam” for crimes that are committed in complete fidelity to the true tenets of Mohammedanism. (See the material in Mohammed, the First Radical Muslim that was contained in my own Silence in the White House and at the Casa Santa Marta.)
We are living at a time when a remarkable confluence of the violent forces of all evil in the world are beginning to battle each other as the adversary paves the way for the coming of Antichrist.
Zionists have oppressed Mohammedans in Israel and elsewhere in the Middle East, resulting in terrorist attack by Mohammedans upon citizens of Israel, which have resulted in dispropionate reprisal attacks by the Israeli Defense Force on entire population centers such as what happened in Gaza earlier this year.
Various sects of Mohammedans, led by the forces of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), continue to fight each other in Iraq and Syria as the “orthodox” members of ISIS seek to liquidate all false religions, including fellow Mohammedans of different stripes.
Leaders of ISIS have now vowed to take their battle to the streets of Moscow in retaliation for Russian President Vladimir Putin’s efforts to save the regime of Syrian President Bashar Hafez al-Assad.
France—and perhaps the rest of Europe in short order hereafter—now finds itself on the target list for its own involvement in Syria as Mohammedan mass murderers are used by Our Lord to chastise the eldest daughter of the Church for its crimes against Him and the souls for whom He shed every single drop of His Most Precious Blood to redeem.
Many private revelations have contained messages that France will be at the epicenter of the battle between a Catholic monarch and Antichrist. Before this can happen, however, the precursors of Antichrist and Antichrist himself must destroy all false religions, including the “religions” represented by Judeo-Masonic ideologies, thereby setting the stage between the final battle between Antichrist and the Catholic Church, now in its mystical burial in the underground during this time of apostasy and betrayal.
Sister Mary of Saint Peter related the revelation given to her by Our Lord on March 29, 1847, that believing Catholics must forge their will against His enemies by their united prayers in reparation to His Face for the crimes they commit against Him to expedite the day when these enemies will destroy each other in fierce battles:
Revelation of March 29, 1847
The Saviour enjoins Sister Mary through her prayers and the instruments of His Passion to make was on the Communists who are the enemies of the Church and her Christ. He tells her that whereas the weapons of the enemy inflict death, the weapons of His Passion restore life. This revelation strikes an unprecedented peak stressing the militancy of the Church on earth, as it demonstrates the power of the individual soul to forge her WILL against the powers of evil through prayer. It must be so for, after all the battle real and actual which goes on between the Church and hell is not a battle of guns and mobilized divisions in uniform, for Satan has none of these at his disposal, but he employs only his formidable WILL of evil to spread disaster. Coping with this force, the Church's militant members forge their WILLS of good, through Christ, to defeat the powers of the infernal regions.
Today after Holy Communion our Lord gave me a new mission, one which ought to frighten me, yet since I know I am nothing but a weak instrument in His hands, I am perfectly at peace.
Our Lord commanded me to make was on the Communists because He said they were the enemies of the Church and of her Christ. He told me also that most of these wolfish men who are now Communists had been born in the Church whose bitter enemies they now openly declare themselves to be. Then our Saviour added:
“I have already told you that I hold you in My hands as an arrow. I now want to hurl this arrow against My enemies. To arm you for the battle ahead, I give you the weapons of My Passion, that is My Cross which these enemies dread and also the other instruments of My tortures. Go forward to meet these foes with the artlessness of a child, and the bravery of a courageous soldier. Receive for this mission the benediction of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.”
Having been favored with this communication, I frequently call on the Blessed Virgin to be the depositary of these sacred weapons which her Divine Son gave me since she is called the Tower of David on which hang a thousand bucklers.
Since our Saviour continued to grant me further lights on this subject I now said to Him. “Lord, give me a skillful hand and train me to use well these weapons which You have entrusted to me for the combat. “To this our Lord answered:
“The weapons of My enemies inflict death but My weapons give life.”
The following is the prayer I frequently recite to fulfill the mission entrusted to me:
“Eternal Father, I offer You the Cross of our Lord Jesus Christ and all the other instruments of His Holy Passion, that You may put division in the camp of Your enemies, for as Your Beloved Son has said. 'A kingdom divided against itself shall fall.'” (The Golden Arrow: The Autobiography of and Revelation of Sister Mary of Saint Peter (1816-1848) On Devotion to the Holy Face of Jesus, edited by Dorothy Scallan and translated by Father Emeric B. Scallan, S.T.B., published originally by William Frederick Press, New York, New York, 1954, and republished by TAN Books and Publishers, Charlotte, North Carolina, 2012, pp. 202-203.)
A kingdom against itself cannot stand, of course, which is why Our Lord Himself ha put division in the camp of His enemies. We are witnessing this division, both here in the United States of America and all around the world and even within the ranks of the false conciliar sect that is chewing itself apart (and will be greatly divided to the point possibly of schism if Jorge Mario Bergoglio is killed by Mohammedans in the Central African Republic). We had better be resolved to choose sides and not to equivocate about the truth of our situation by abandoning all pretense that the counterfeit church of conciliarism is the Catholic Church and/or that we can be friends "with the world" and its "entertainments" while remainging friends of Our Lord and His true Church.
Consider, for example, the story that Louis Martin told his wife Zelie about what Saint Bernadette Soubirou had said to a French commandant who had informed her that the Prussian Army had invaded Nevers, France, during the latter stages of the Franco-Prussian War:
True at the time, there seemed to be no question of any threat to the religious liberties of Europeans. The Franco-Prussian War seemed, on the surface, just like any other war that came to Europe from time to time during hundreds of years in the past. Neither could the Martins be expected to see, in 1870, the repercussions to all humanity from its aftermath, although their offspring was to witness deed of horror following close in its wake.
Yet it is important to note that Zelie and Louis, as did thousands of religious Frenchmen, sensing, as it were, a dawn of doom, began to hope for deliverance aside from that which they knew was not to be anticipated through any stroke of French military prowess. In one final gesture of trust in the power of prayer, they now turned their eyes to Bernadette, the seeress of Lourdes, to hold off military disaster for France. Could the nun of twenty-six, whose name was a household work throughout Europe, save her country from conquest?
Frenchmen now hope against hope that she could and would . . . . Zelie and Louis were among these until that fateful day when news reached Alencon that Prussian troops were already inside the city of Nevers, where Sister Bernarde was stationed at the Motherhouse. Louis took a grim view of the situation and made no attempt to conceal his disquiet.
“Zelie, there is bad news from Nevers,” he announced, rushing into the parlor to acquaint her with the latest development on the the front.
“The Prussians have occupied the city.”
“Oh, Bernadette did not save us. . . . .” moaned Zelie, tears gathering in her eyes. “Are there any details about her?”
“Yes. Reports are that our commandant went to the Motherhouse and asked to speak with Bernadette. He said: 'Sister the Prussians are now at the fates of our city. Tell me, are you not afraid?”
“And what did Bernadette say?”
“She answered: 'Sir, I fear only bad Catholics!”
“Oh Saviour, have pity of France,” cried Zelie. For a while neither spoke and only the clock on the wall ticked away loud seconds. Zelie was unwilling to say more in the presence of the children who stood around listening. Marie aged ten, and Pauline eight, could sense bad news and would worry over it. But on retiring that night, Zelie picked up the thread of their conversation.
“What do you suppose Sister Bernadette meant when she told the commandant that she feared only bad Catholics?”
“I don't know. It is a very difficult matter to understand.”
“But I think I have an explanation. She must have meant that if Catholics as a whole kept the laws of God and served Him as they should they would bring about many conversions and also establish a sort of balance between good and bad. In this way the evil deeds of the erring and misguided would be counteracted by the good deeds of the right-living. But, when Catholics themselves – who know better – join the ranks of those who through ignorance offend and abuse God's laws, what can ever a living Saint like Bernadette do?”
“You seem to explain this very well, Zelie. Surely, war is a punishment for sin. Good Catholics could avert it by serving God as they've been taught. Evidently that is the conclusion the saintly Bernadette came to draw for us.”
That night Lois reflected that the Church counts on the prayers and merits of the good within her fold, but when an overwhelming number of Catholics remain indifferent to god, then even a Saint or a small group of devout Christians her and ther are quite powerless to stay the hand of God. No, Bernadette was not able to avert military disaster for her country. Evidently too many wills opposed hers. The scales of justice were not balance and so it befell that the war broke out and many of the good had to suffer along with the bad. (Dorothy Scallan, The Whole World Will Love Me: The Life of St. Therese of the Child Jesus and of the Holy Face (1873-1897), published originally by The William-Frederick Press, New York, New York, 1954, under the author's pen name, Doris Sheridan, and republished by TAN Books and Publishers, Rockford, Illinois, pp. 41-43.)
Yes, the good must suffer with the bad, and few of us have been so “good” that we do not deserve to suffer death at the hands of infidels without a moment’s notice, which is why we need Our Lady’s help as never before.
That having been noted, the eternal fate of those Catholics who have thrown in their lot with Jorge Mario Bergoglio as their “pope” while celebrating his “mercy” towards those who have no intention of reforming their sinful lives is far worse than that of a repentant sinner who dies in an attack after having started his day’s activities by praying the Acts of Faith, Hope, Charity, and Contrition and begging Our Lady to pray for him now and at the hour of his death with a true love of God as He has revealed Himself to us exclusively through His true Church, the Catholic Church, and with a true detestation of his own sins.
Relying upon Our Lady’s intercession, especially through her Most Holy Rosary, we must stand as strong as the Faith in the midst of attacks that make any one of us a victim in but the blink of an eye in our states and localitiesMay we have recourse to the Holy Name of Mary, which we invoke with love one hundred fifty-three times when we pray the three sets of her Most Holy Rosary, whose power was invoked by Pope Saint Pius V to defeat the Mohammedan Turks in the Battle of Lepanto on October 7, 1571, and which was prayed by the Catholic forces under the command of King John Sobieski of Poland on this very day three hundred thirty-one years ago as he defeat the Mohammedan Turks in the Battle of the Gates of Vienna.
Our Lady said the following to Jacinta and Francisco Marto and their cousin, Luica does Santos, to encourage them keep praying their Rosaries when she appeared to them on September 13, 1917:
"Continue to pray the Rosary in order to obtain the end of the war. In October Our Lord will come, as well as Our Lady of Dolours and Our Lady of Carmel. Saint Joseph will appear with the Child Jesus to bless the world. God is pleased with your sacrifices. He does not want you to sleep with the rope on, but only to wear it during the daytime."
Lucia then began to put forward the petitions for cures, to be told: "Yes, I will cure some, but not others. In October I will perform a miracle so that all may believe." (Our Lady's Words at Fatima.)
Our Lady's Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart will triumph over the forces of Modernity and Modernism. All we have to do is suffer the chastisements of the moment in reparation for our sins and those of the whole world as the consecrated slaves through the same Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, praying as many Rosaries each day as our state-in-life permits, recognizing that the next trip to the supermarket might be the time when some Mohammedan terrorist ends our lives.
It is just up to us to cooperate with graces that Our Lady sends to us to do so as we make reparation to her Divine Son's Holy Face as the consecrated slaves of her own Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart.
Vivat Christus Rex!
Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.
Saint Joseph, pray for us.
Saints Peter and Paul, pray for us.
Saint John the Baptist, pray for us.
Saint Gabriel the Archangel, pray for us.
Saint Raphael the Archangel, pray for us.
Saints Joachim and Anne, pray for us.
Saints Caspar, Melchior, and Balthasar, pray for us.
Saint Josaphat, pray for us.
On the Feast of Saint Josaphat
The saint whose martyrdom we celebrate today, Wednesday, November 14, 2012, Saint Josaphat Kucenewicz, laid down his very life in defense of the truths of the Holy Faith as he sought to convert the Orthodox back to the true Faith from which their ancestors had separated themselves nearly five hundred seventy years before. He did not care about threats. He was not going to be intimidated. He did not complain about the obstacles. He accepted calumnies with perfect equanimity, seeing in his detractors the loving hand of God to purify him for the sake of His greater honor and glory and the sanctification and salvation of souls. Saint Josaphat's martyrdom, however, came, the conciliarists would have us believe, with an "expiration" date, that of October 28, 1958, which was the dawning of the age of conciliarism, an age wherein purported "popes" have told the world that it is no longer necessary to seek to convert the Orthodox, something that they have formalized in the Balamand Statement that was made leaders of various branches of Orthodoxy:
23. Pastoral activity in the Catholic Church, Latin as well as Eastern, no longer aims at having the faithful of one Church pass over to the other; that is to say, it no longer aims at proselytizing among the Orthodox. It aims at answering the spiritual needs of its own faithful and it has no desire for expansion at the expense of the Orthodox Church. Within these perspectives, so that there will no longer be room for mistrust and suspicion, it is necessary that there be reciprocal exchanges of information about various pastoral projects and that thus cooperation between bishops and all those with responsibilities in our Churches can be set in motion and develop.
23. The history of the relations between the Orthodox Church and the Oriental Catholic Churches has been marked by persecutions and sufferings. Whatever may have been these sufferings and their causes, they do not justify any triumphalism; no one can glorify in them or draw an argument from them to accuse or disparage the other Church, God alone knows his own witnesses. Whatever may have been the past, it must be left to the mercy of God, and all the energies of the Churches should be directed towards obtaining that the present and the future conform better to the will of Christ for his own.
24. It will also be necessary--and this on the part of both Churches--that the bishops and all those with pastoral responsibilities in them scrupulously respect the religious liberty of the faithful. These, in turn, must be able to express freely their opinion by being consulted and by organizing themselves to this end.
In fact, religious liberty requires that, particularly in situations of conflict, the faithful are able to express their opinion and to decide without pressure from outside if they wish to be in communion either with the Orthodox Church or with the Catholic Church. Religious freedom would be violated when, under the cover of financial assistance, the faithful of one Church would be attracted to the other, by promises, for example, of education and material benefits that may be lacking in their own Church. In this context, it will be necessary that social assistance, as well as every form of philanthropic activity, be organized with common agreement so as to avoid creating new suspicions. (The Balamand Statement.)
Yes, the martyrdom of Saint Josaphat is considered to be "out-of-date" for the conciliarists, part of the "past" about which there needs to be a "purification of memory." The conciliar revolutionaries believe that those in the Orthodox churches have no need to fear of their eternal salvation. Indeed, these hideous men have told us that a way must be found to exercise the "Petrine Ministry" in a manner that recalls the mythical beliefs of Karol Josef Wojtyla/John Paul II', Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, Walter Kasper and Jorge Mario Bergoglio about the way in which the "Petrine Ministry" is said to have existed in the First Millennium, a myth that was debunked by Pope Leo XIII in Praeclara Gratulationis Publicae, June 29, 1884:
First of all, then, We cast an affectionate look upon the East, from whence in the beginning came forth the salvation of the world. Yes, and the yearning desire of Our heart bids us conceive and hope that the day is not far distant when the Eastern Churches, so illustrious in their ancient faith and glorious past, will return to the fold they have abandoned. We hope it all the more, that the distance separating them from Us is not so great: nay, with some few exceptions, we agree so entirely on other heads that, in defense of the Catholic Faith, we often have recourse to reasons and testimony borrowed from the teaching, the Rites, and Customs of the East.
The Principal subject of contention is the Primacy of the Roman Pontiff. But let them look back to the early years of their existence, let them consider the sentiments entertained by their forefathers, and examine what the oldest Traditions testify, and it will, indeed, become evident to them that Christ's Divine Utterance, Thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build My Church, has undoubtedly been realized in the Roman Pontiffs. Many of these latter in the first gates of the Church were chosen from the East, and foremost among them Anacletus, Evaristus, Anicetus, Eleutherius, Zosimus, and Agatho; and of these a great number, after Governing the Church in Wisdom and Sanctity, Consecrated their Ministry with the shedding of their blood. The time, the reasons, the promoters of the unfortunate division, are well known. Before the day when man separated what God had joined together, the name of the Apostolic See was held in Reverence by all the nations of the Christian world: and the East, like the West, agreed without hesitation in its obedience to the Pontiff of Rome, as the Legitimate Successor of St. Peter, and, therefore, the Vicar of Christ here on earth.
And, accordingly, if we refer to the beginning of the dissension, we shall see that Photius himself was careful to send his advocates to Rome on the matters that concerned him; and Pope Nicholas I sent his Legates to Constantinople from the Eternal City, without the slightest opposition, "in order to examine the case of Ignatius the Patriarch with all diligence, and to bring back to the Apostolic See a full and accurate report"; so that the history of the whole negotiation is a manifest Confirmation of the Primacy of the Roman See with which the dissension then began. Finally, in two great Councils, the second of Lyons and that of Florence, Latins and Greeks, as is notorious, easily agreed, and all unanimously proclaimed as Dogma the Supreme Power of the Roman Pontiffs.
We have recalled those things intentionally, for they constitute an invitation to peace and reconciliation; and with all the more reason that in Our own days it would seem as if there were a more conciliatory spirit towards Catholics on the part of the Eastern Churches, and even some degree of kindly feeling. To mention an instance, those sentiments were lately made manifest when some of Our faithful travelled to the East on a Holy Enterprise, and received so many proofs of courtesy and good-will.
Therefore, Our mouth is open to you, to you all of Greek or other Oriental Rites who are separated from the Catholic Church, We earnestly desire that each and every one of you should meditate upon the words, so full of gravity and love, addressed by Bessarion to your forefathers: "What answer shall we give to God when He comes to ask why we have separated from our Brethren: to Him Who, to unite us and bring us into One Fold, came down from Heaven, was Incarnate, and was Crucified? What will our defense be in the eyes of posterity? Oh, my Venerable Fathers, we must not suffer this to be, we must not entertain this thought, we must not thus so ill provide for ourselves and for our Brethren."
Weigh carefully in your minds and before God the nature of Our request. It is not for any human motive, but impelled by Divine Charity and a desire for the salvation of all, that We advise the reconciliation and union with the Church of Rome; and We mean a perfect and complete union, such as could not subsist in any way if nothing else was brought about but a certain kind of agreement in the Tenets of Belief and an intercourse of Fraternal love. The True Union between Christians is that which Jesus Christ, the Author of the Church, instituted and desired, and which consists in a Unity of Faith and Unity of Government.
Nor is there any reason for you to fear on that account that We or any of Our Successors will ever diminish your rights, the privileges of your Patriarchs, or the established Ritual of any one of your Churches. It has been and always will be the intent and Tradition of the Apostolic See, to make a large allowance, in all that is right and good, for the primitive Traditions and special customs of every nation. On the contrary, if you re-establish Union with Us, you will see how, by God's bounty, the glory and dignity of your Churches will be remarkably increased. (Pope Leo XIII, Praeclara Gratulationis Publicae, June 20, 1884.)
Saint Josaphat's life stands in stark contrast to the heresies of conciliarism that leave so many souls into error and others in peril of losing their souls. Dom Prosper Gueranger explained the courage and zeal of this great martyr's life and his heroic death:
Josaphat Kuncewicz, contemporary with St. Francis de Sales and St. Vincent de Paul, might have been taken for a Greek monk of the eleventh century or an ascetic of the Thebaid. A stranger to the intellectual culture of the West, he knew only the liturgical books and sacred texts use din his own church; as a priest, an archimandrite, a reformer of his own Order of St. Basil, and lastly as archbishop, he combated his life the consequences of the schism of Photius, and closed the struggle by culling the palm of martyrdom. Yet all this took place in the heart of Europe, in the countries then subject to Catholic Poland, during the reign of most of its kings. How is this mystery to be explained?
Immediately after the Mongolian invasions Poland received into her arms, rather than conquered, the Ruthenian nation--that is to say, the Slavs of the Greek rite from the Dnieper and the Dwina, who had formed around their capital and religious metropolis, Kiev, the nucleus of the power now known as Russia. Had she granted a participation in her own national life to these brethren separated from, but not enemies to, the Roman unity, who came to her full confidence in her strength and her justice, Poland would have secured the triumph of the Catholic cause, and her own dominion throughout Slavonia. The union of the newcomers with the Roman pontiff, which a little more political insight and religious zeal might have brought about in the fourteenth century, was not concluded until 1595.
This was the union of Brzsec. By the compact signed in this little town of Lithuania, the metropolitan of Kiev and the other Greek bishops declared that they returned to the communion of the holy Apostolic See. Being the spiritual superiors of the half the nation, they thus completed the union of the three peoples, Ruthenian, Lithuanian, and Polish, then subject to Sigismund III. Now, a religious reform, even if decreed by a council, does not become a reality until men of God, true apostles and if need be martyrs, came forward to consummate it. This was the vocation of St. Josaphat, the apostle and martyr of the Union of Brzsec. What he did not himself carry out was completed by his disciples. A century of glory was secured to the nation, and its political ruin was delayed for two hundred years.
But Poland left in a state of humiliating inferiority the clergy and people of the Graeco-Slavonic rite, who had taken shelter in her bosom; her politicians never admitted practically that Christians of the Greek rite could be true Catholics on a equality with their Latin brethren. Soon, however, the Latin Poles were engaged in deadly combat with the Muscovites, and we know how the former were vanquished. Historians lay down the causes of Poland's defeat:; but they usually forget the principal one, which rendered it irremediable--viz., the forced return to schism of the immense majority of the Ruthenians whom St. Josaphat had brought into the Catholic Church. The consummation of this execrable work contributed, far more than political circumstances or military triumphs, to establish Russia's victory. Poland, reduced to nine or ten million Latins, could no longer struggle against her former rival now become her stern ruler.
The power of the Slavs separated from Catholic unity is on the increase. Young nations, emancipated from the Musselman [Mohammedan] yoke, have formed in the Balkan Peninsula. Fidelity to the Graeco-Slavonian rite, identified in their eyes with their nationality and with Christianity, was alone to save these peoples from being stamped out by the Turkish forces. Victorious over the universal enemy, they cannot forget whence came their safety: the moral and religious direction of these resuscitated nations belongs accordingly to Russia. Profiting by these advantages with consummate skill and energy, she continues to develop her influence in the East. In Asia her progress is still more prodigious. The Tsar, who at the end of the eighteenth century ruled over thirty million men, now governs one hundred and twenty-five millions; and and by the normal increase of an exceptionally prolific population, the empire, within another half-century, will reckon more than hundred millions of subjects.
Unhappily for Russia and for the Church, this power is guided at present by blind prejudice. Not only is Russia separated from Catholic unity, but political interest and the recollection of ancient strifes convince her that her greatness depends upon the triumph of what she calls Orthodoxy, which is simply the Photian schism. yet the Roman Church, ever devoted and generous, opens wide her arms to welcome back her wandering daughter; forgetting the injuries she has received, she asks but to be greeted with the name of mother. Let this word be uttered, and a whole sad past will be effaced.
Russia becoming Catholic would mean an end to Islamism, and the definitive triumph of the Cross upon the Bosphorus, without any danger to Europe, the Christian empire in the East restored with a glory and a power hitherto unknown; Asia evangelized, not by a few poor isolated priests, but with the help of an authority greater than that of Charlemagne; and lastly, the Slavonic race brought into unity of faith and aspirations, for its own greater glory. This transformation will be the greatest event of the century that shall see its accomplishment; it will change the face of the world.
Is there any foundation for such hopes? Come what may, St. Josaphat will always be the patron and model of the future apostles of the Union in Russia and in the whole Graeco-Slavonic world. By his birth, education, and studies, by the bent of his piety and all his habits of life, he resembled far more the Russian monks of the present day than the Latin prelates of his own time. He always desired the ancient liturgy of his Church to be preserved entire; and even to his last breath he carried it out lovingly, without the least alteration or diminution, just as the first apostles of the Christian faith had brought it from Constantinople to Kiev. May prejudices born of ignorance be obliterated; and then, despised though his name now is in Russia, St. Josaphat will no sooner be known than he will be loved and invoked by the Russians themselves.
On Graeco-Slavonian brethren cannot much longer turn a deaf ear to the invitations of the Sovereign Pontiff. Let us hope, then, that the day will come, and that before very long, when the wall of separation will crumble away for ever, and the same hymn of thanksgiving will echo at once under the dome of St. Peter's and the cupolas of Kiev and of St. Petersburg. (Dom Prosper Gueranger, The Liturgical Year: Time After Pentecost: Book VI, pp. 266-269.)
Can you understand now why Our Lady called for the conversion of Russia in the Cova da Iria near Fatima, Portugal, in 1917, as the fruit its consecration to her Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart?
Our Lady was not simply speaking about Communism, which had yet to take over Russia in its entirety, although its spirit was strong following the abdication of Czar Nicholas II and Empress Consort Alexander on March 15, 1917. Our Lady was referring also to the errors of Modernity wrought by Orthodoxy. Saint Josaphat understood the importance of Russia to the entirety of Catholic world order. He laid down his life to convert souls to bring about the conversion of this country that is so near and dear to the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Concerned about what happened last night in Paris, France?
Well, such events are but the result of the spread of errors of Russia that helped to create the world of Modernity long before the Bolshevik Revolution.
Concerned about ObamaDeathCare?
There would be noObamaDeathCare, and there would be no Obama/Soetoro as president of the United States of America if the errors of Russia had not been spreading since 1054 A.D., errors that would influence the mind of Martin Luther and result in his own diabolical revolution against the Divine Plan that God instituted to effect man's return to Him through the Catholic Church. Russia is critical to the re-establishment of Christendom.
To effect the conversion of Russia, of course, Saint Josaphat laid down his very life in a manner described in the Divine Office yesterday for his feast:
In this dignity he relaxed nothing of his former manner of life; and had nothing so much at heart as the divine service and the salvation of the sheep entrusted to him. He energetically defended Catholic faith and unity, and laboured to the utmost of his power to bring back schismatics and heretics to communion with the See of Peter. The Sovereign Pontiff and the plenitude of his power he never ceased to defend, both by preaching and by writings full of piety and learning, against the most shameless calumnies and errors of the wicked. He vindicated episcopal rights, and restored ecclesiastical possessions which had been seized by laymen. Incredible was the number of heretics he won back to the bosom of mother Church; and the words of the pope bear witness how greatly he promoted the union of the Greek and Latin churches. His revenues were entirely expended in restoring the beauty of God's house, in building of dwellings for consecrated virgins, and in other pious works. So bountiful was he to the poor, that on one occasion, having nothing wherewith to supply the needs of a certain widow, he ordered his Omnophorion, or episcopal pallium, to be pawned.
The great progress made by the Catholic faith so stirred up the hatred of wicked men against the soldier of Christ, that they determined to put him to death. He knew what was threatening him; and foretold it when preaching to the people. As he was making his visitation at Vitebsk, the murderers broke into his house, striking and wounding all whom they found. Josaphat meekly went to meet them, and accosted them kindly, saying : "My little children, why do you strike my servants? If you have any complaint against me, here I am." Hereupon they rushed on him, overwhelmed him with blows, pierced him with their spears, and at length dispatched him with an axe and threw his body into the river. This took place on the twelfth of November, 1623, in the forty-third year of his age. His body, surrounded with a miraculous light, was rescued from the waters. The martyr's blood won a blessing first of all for his murderers; for, being condemned to death, they nearly all abjured their schism and repented of their crime. (As found in The Liturgical Year.)
The authentically incorrupt body of this great martyr, Saint Josaphat, was on display under an altar on the right transept of the Basilica of Saint Peter in Rome until a few years ago. The incorrupt body of this great saint who spent himself tirelessly for the conversion of the schismatic and heretical Orthodox was moved to a different, less prominent location in order to make way for the artificially preserved body of the thoroughly corrupt Angelo Roncalli/John XXIII, who promised silence about Communism in order to purchase the presence of "observers" from the schismatic and heretical Russian Orthodox Church at his "Second" Vatican Council.
The aggiornamento of Angelo Roncalli has nothing to do with the conversion of men and nations to the Social Reign of Christ the King and Mary our Immaculate Queen, thus helping to make more possible the madness of a world made mad by the overthrow of this sweet, gentle reign of our King and our Queen. We can never be party to silence on any point of doctrinal or moral truth in "exchange" for some concession given by those steeped in error and/or immorality. Not one compromise. Ever. For any reason.
Keep praying your Rosaries. Entrust all to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary. Pray fervently to Saint Joseph, the Patron of the Universal Church and the Protector of the Faithful.
Cheer up. Worse is yet to come, both civilly and ecclesiastically. We must bear the cross of these times with joy and gratitude. It is a privilege to live in these times with such crosses. Each cross is our path to Heaven. Embrace it well and give all to Christ the King through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, who will defeat all anti-Catholics in the world bar none.
