Circus Jorge is nearing its conclusion. .
Although there have been plenty of fireworks, it remains my contention that there will no schism within what can be called the Worldwide Conciliar Communion that has shown itself to be but an auxiliary of the Worldwide Anglican Communion and an adjunct of Judeo-Masonry. This contention is buttressed by the fact that Jorge’s chosen weapon of revolutionary warfare is that of the devolution of decision-making on so-called “pastoral matters” from the dicasteries of the in and around the Vatican to the diocesan level, something that was example in parts two and five of this ongoing series.
That is, although Bergoglio knows that there is resistance to his plans to tear down the last remaining bastions of Catholicism within his false religious sect among the Girondist/Menshevik conciliar revolutionaries, each of whom accepts the fundamental heretical premises and doctrines of conciliarism, he knows that those revolutionaries will be picked off one-by-one as their time for retirement approaches or they appear to be spending “extravagantly” on their own residences.
Bergoglio will look for any pretext, including a feigned concern for protecting children, to remove the Girondist/Menshevik “bishops” that he believes pollutes a “pure” reading of the Gospel of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ while leaving in place his fellow Jacobin/Menshevik revolutionaries who are have records of financial profligacy and, at least in some cases, have covered up their own moral crimes and/or those of their clergy. Bergoglio’s plan, therefore, to wait out the Girondist/Mensheviks until they can be replaced as time and circumstances dictate. This is a thinly-disguised ecclesiastical Stalinism, something that comes very naturally to a fellow traveler of Marxists and other Socialists.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio has shown that the his circus inside the Aula Paulo Sicko is nothing but a farce leading up to “inconclusive” results on supposedly “controversial” matters such as the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony and the sin of Sodom that will permit him to impose his own predetermined conclusions that are being mouthed by the likes of Reinhard Max, Blase Cupich, Vincent Nichols, Walter Kasper, Godfried Daneels, Mark Coleridge, Donald Wuerl, et al. after the “really big shew” ends on Sunday, October 25, 2015, which is the Feast of Christ the King in the Catholic Church, although not in the counterfeit church of conciliarism, where it is the “Thirtieth Sunday in Ordinary Time.” The Argentine Apostate has shown that his “Synod ‘15” is a farce that, contrary to his “humble assertions,” is not about “free and open debate” on matters of truth that are not debatable, by using his daily screeds at the Casa Santa Marta to respond to some of the interventions made by the Girondist/Menhsevik revolutionaries he plans to depose sooner rather than later. (It is probably going to be “sooner” rather than “later” given “Father” Federico Lombardi’s recent denial of a report in an Italian newspaper, Quotidiano Nazionale, that his fellow lay Jesuit from Argentina has a treatable form of brain cancer, which means that the report is true, of course. Remember, the conciliar Vatican called for a “day of reparation” back in 1976 when allegations were published about Giovanni Battista Enrico Antonio Maria Montini/Paul the Sick’s perverse behavior, detailed in the appendix below. Denials made by the Vatican press office in this time of conciliar captivity are as worthless as a Josh Earnest press conference at the White House and/or as worthless as any testimony given under oath at any time by anyone named Hillary Dianne Rodham Clinton.)
In other words, Bergoglio is as hypocritical as his fellow revolutionary and partner in crimes against God and man, Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro, in promising “openness, “transparency” and “civility” while stifling opposition by the use of secret meetings and the harshest of demagogic language ever used by any of the current line of antipopes that traces its lineage back to the sad, dark day that the Rosicrucian Sillonist named Angelo Roncalli emerged on the balcony of the Basilica of Saint Peter on Tuesday, October 28, 1958, the Feast of Saints Simon and Jude. The only thing that is “transparent” about Bergoglio and his fellow revolutionaries in the counterfeit church of conciliarism (and of Obama/Soetoro and his fellow Stalinists in the realm of the anti-Incarnational, statist world of Modernity) is their contempt and uncivility towards anyone and everyone who attempts to counter emotionally-based heresy and error with even a compromised defense of Catholic doctrine.
Here is but one out of so many recent examples of Bergoglio’s effort to blunt the efforts on the part of the Girondist/Menshevik revolutionaries, each of whom accepts the “fundamental” heresies and errors of conciliarism (evolution of dogma, the new ecclesiology, episcopal collegiality, false ecumenism, inter-religious “dialogue” and syncretistic “prayer” services, religious liberty, separation of Church and State) and uses false liturgical rites that are sacramentally barren, who are opposing his false belief that there is somehow a disparity between Catholic doctrine and “mercy”:
Hypocrisy does not have a colour, rather it plays with halftones. It creeps in and seduces "chiaroscuro", with "the charm of the lie." The Pope was referring to the scene portrayed by the scripture reading of the day from the Gospel of Luke - Jesus and the disciples are in the midst of a crowd who are trampling on eachother- highlighting the outspoken warning of Christ to his disciples: "Beware of the yeast of the Pharisees" . "It is a very small thing" yeast, observed Pope Francis, but Jesus talks about it as if to say "virus". As "a doctor" who says "to his collaborators" to pay attention to the risks of an "epidemic":
"This yeast is a virus that will cause you to get sick and die. Beware! This yeast brings darkness. Beware! But there is one that is greater than this: it is the Father who is in heaven. 'Are not five sparrows sold for two pennies? Yet not one of them is forgotten before God. Even the hairs of your head are all numbered '. And then, in the final exhortation: 'Do not be afraid! You are worth more than many sparrows'. In front of all these fears that leave us this way and that way, and that gives us the virus, the yeast of pharisaical hypocrisy, Jesus tells us: 'There is a Father. There is a Father who loves you. There is a Father who cares for you '. "
And there's only one way to avoid infection, says Pope Francis. It is the way indicated by Jesus: pray. It is the only solution, he concluded, to avoid falling into that ''self-righteous attitude that is neither light nor darkness, "but is" in the middle " of a journey that" will never reach the light of God":
"Let us pray. Please a lot. 'Lord, protect your Church, which is all of us: guard your people, that gathered and were trampling each other, each other. Protect your people, because you love the light, the light that comes from the Father, from your Father, who sent you to save us. Protect your people so they do not become hypocrites, they don't fall into a lukewarm kind of life. Look after your people because they have the joy of knowing that there is a Father who loves us so much. " (Beware of the virus of hypocrisy.)
The real hypocrites, of course, are the conciliar revolutionaries themselves, including the Girondists/Mensheviks serving as Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s useful foils and straw men to advance his goals, as none of them—that is correct, not one of them—is a member of the Catholic Church. Each adheres to a variety of condemned propositions. All that the Jacobins/Bolsheviks are doing at this time is to manifest the logical consequences of those condemned propositions as they use junk anthropology, junk sociology and junk psychology to make it appear that those who are sinning unrepentantly, whether naturally or perversely, are actually acting in “good conscience” and are thus able to participate fully in the life of what purports to be the Catholic Church without any having reformed their lives in response to exhortations given them by their supposed shepherds to do so.
What is going on in “Synod ‘15” has nothing to do with Catholicism. Nothing. It has everything to do with the typical Marxist tactic, adapted so very well for use in the United States of America and in the Catholic Church in the two decades leading up to the “Second” Vatican Council by the late Talmudic “community organizer, Saul Alinsky (see Willing Servants of Antichrist.)
The only crisis that the family is facing today is one that has been produced by the inter-related heresies of errors of Protestantism and Judeo-Masonry that spawned the anti-Incarnational, naturalistic, religiously indifferentist civil state of Modernity, whose caesars and caeserttes have made relentless war upon the binding precepts of the Fourth through Tenth Commandments after the Protestants had attempted to “redefine”—and to renumber!—the First through Third Commandments, not ignoring the fact that it was Martin Luther who made divorce and remarriage a bedrock principle of his diabolically-inspired revolution against God’s Divine Plan to effect man’s return to Him through His Catholic Church. Luther and those who followed him made it possible for some of the neo-pagan currents of the Renaissance to emerge victorious, especially during the so-called “Enlightenment” and the social revolutions that occurred in its wake.
The tactics of the Modernists in the counterfeit church of conciliarism are the same as their statist comrades (that’s a deliberate choice of words, of course) in the world of Modernity. That is, to quote the wretched pro-abortion, pro-perversity, see-no-evil in black on black killing sprees Mayor of Chicago, Illinois, Rahm Emmanuel, said when he was Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro’s first Chief of Staff, “Never let a good crisis go to waste,” and if a “crisis” does not exist, you see, then one or more must be manufactured or engineered in order to claim that some kind of “action” is necessary to remedy the situation(s). This is all designed to advance revolutionary goals and to enhance the power, if not the wealth as well, of the revolutionaries and their ability to control the masses and to punish those who oppose their nefarious schemes that have their origin in hell itself.
The very thing that caused Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to suffer once in His Sacred Humanity during His Passion and Death, sin, has been glorified and exalted as a human right by the lords of Modernity, and relativized into nothing other than an expression of “love” by the lords of Modernism in the counterfeit church of conciliarism, including, of course Bergoglio and those who enjoy his favor at “Synod ’15,” including Blase Cupich, the conciliar “archbishop” of Chicago, Illinois.
Here is a report on what the conciliar “archbishop” of Chicago, Illinois (home of a near north side team that was really swept aside by the unsung champions of the downtrodden masses in the Borough of Queens, who must meet another challenge ahead of them next week in either Kansas City, Missouri, or Toronto, Ontario, People's Republic of Trudeau), said in a press conference after Circus Jorge on Friday, October 16, 2015, the Feast of Saint Hediwg.
October 16, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) -- Archbishop Blase Cupich of Chicago — who is participating in the Synod of the Family at Pope Francis’ personal invitation — said at a press scrum in the Vatican press office this afternoon that the conscience is "inviolable" and that he believes divorced and remarried couples could be permitted to receive the sacraments, if they have "come to a decision" to do so "in good conscience" - theological reasoning that he indicated in response to a follow-up question would also apply to gay couples.
During the lengthy press briefing, the archbishop also spoke approvingly of the so-called "Kasper Proposal," which would permit divorced and remarried Catholics to receive Communion in some cases. Cupich explained that he had distributed Cardinal Walter Kasper's book, The Gospel of the Family, in which the cardinal had laid out this proposal, to all of the priests in his diocese.
“In Chicago I visit regularly with people who feel marginalized: the elderly, the divorced and remarried, gay and lesbian individuals and also couples. I think that we really need to get to know what their life is like if we’re going to accompany them,” he said.
hen asked to give a concrete example of how he would accompany the divorced and remarried in their desire to receive the sacraments, Cupich replied: “If people come to a decision in good conscience then our job is to help them move forward and to respect that. The conscience is inviolable and we have to respect that when they make decisions, and I’ve always done that.”
When asked by LifeSiteNews if the notion of accompanying people to "the Sacrament" who had a clear indication of conscience to do so also applied to gay couples in the Church, Cupich indicated an affirmative answer.
“I think that gay people are human beings too and they have a conscience. And my role as a pastor is to help them to discern what the will of God is by looking at the objective moral teaching of the Church and yet, at the same time, helping them through a period of discernment to understand what God is calling them to at that point,” he said. “It’s for everybody. I think that we have to make sure that we don’t pigeonhole one group as though they are not part of the human family, as though there’s a different set of rules for them. That would be a big mistake.” (Cupich Lays Out a Path for Sodomites to Receive Commnion in the Conciliar Church.)
What need is there to yet refute such utter apostasy?
Scores upon scores of articles on this site have done so just in the past thirty-one months alone, and there will be time to review such a apostasy again after Circus Jorge folds its tent in two days and the assembled “bishops” go home to deal with the elevated expectations that their “pope” has created in the minds of those Catholics want to commit their sins while never being chastised by anyone at any time for doing so.
Suffice it to say for the moment that there was a brilliant, courageous refutation of the very apostasies being promoted by “Pope Francis” and his fellow Jacobin/Bolshevik conciliar interventions given by a Romanian physician, Dr. Anca-Maria Cernea, on Monday, October 19, 2015, the Feast of Saint Peter of Alcantara, who was the confessor of Saint Teresa of Avila.
Here is the text of Dr. Anca-Maria Cerena’s intervention as found on Lifesite News:
Your Holiness, Synod Fathers, Brothers and Sisters, I represent the Association of Catholic Doctors from Bucharest.
I am from the Romanian Greek Catholic Church.
My father was a Christian political leader, who was imprisoned by the communists for 17 years. My parents were engaged to marry, but their wedding took place 17 years later.
My mother waited all those years for my father, although she didn’t even know if he was still alive. They have been heroically faithful to God and to their engagement.
Their example shows that God’s grace can overcame terrible social circumstances and material poverty.
We, as Catholic doctors, defending life and family, can see this is, first of all, a spiritual battle.
Material poverty and consumerism are not the primary cause of the family crisis.
The primary cause of the sexual and cultural revolution is ideological.
Our Lady of Fatima has said that Russia’s errors would spread all over the world.
It was first done under a violent form, classical Marxism, by killing tens of millions.
Now it’s being done mostly by cultural Marxism. There is continuity from Lenin’s sex revolution, through Gramsci and the Frankfurt school, to the current-day gay-rights and gender ideology.
Classical Marxism pretended to redesign society, through violent take-over of property.
Now the revolution goes deeper; it pretends to redefine family, sex identity and human nature.
This ideology calls itself progressive. But it is nothing else than the ancient serpent’s offer, for man to take control, to replace God, to arrange salvation here, in this world.
It’s an error of religious nature, it’s Gnosticism.
It’s the task of the shepherds to recognize it, and warn the flock against this danger.
“Seek ye therefore first the Kingdom of God, and His justice, and all these things shall be added unto you.”
The Church’s mission is to save souls. Evil, in this world, comes from sin. Not from income disparity or “climate change”.
The solution is: Evangelization. Conversion.
Not an ever increasing government control. Not a world government. These are nowadays the main agents imposing cultural Marxism to our nations, under the form of population control, reproductive health, gay rights, gender education, and so on.
What the world needs nowadays is not limitation of freedom, but real freedom, liberation from sin. Salvation.
Our Church was suppressed by the soviet occupation. But none of our 12 bishops betrayed their communion with the Holy Father. Our Church survived thanks to our bishops’ determination and example in resisting prisons and terror.
Our bishops asked the community not to follow the world. Not to cooperate with the communists.
Now we need Rome to tell the world: “Repent of your sins and turn to God for the Kingdom of Heaven is near”.
Not only us, the Catholic laity, but also many Christian Orthodox are anxiously praying for this Synod. Because, as they say, if the Catholic Church gives in to the spirit of this world, it is going to be very difficult for all the other Christians to resist it. (Romanian doctor makes blunt, powerful plea.)
This speaks for itself, does it not, and it is the fruit, by and large, of the fact that unlike Bergoglio, who says he has met Communists and atheists who are “good people” and who has been so all-embracing of the murderous tyrants named Fidel and Raul Castro (and of Obama/Soetoro himself), Dr. Anca-Maria Cernea suffered under Communism. It should also be noted that her own patriarch, Archbishop Lucian Muresan, was consecrated as a bishop in 1990 by his predecessor, Bishop Alexander Todea, who had been consecrated on November 19, 1950. This means that she, Dr. Anca-Maria Cernea, has had access to a true liturgy of the Catholic Church throughout her entire life despite not understanding the fact that the man before the very man, Bergoglio, she was rebuking so very forcefully, is but the sixth in the current line of antipopes.
We must pray for Dr. Anca-Maria Cernea and for her bishops(!) to come to an acceptance of the true state of the Church in this time of apostasy and betrayal (perhaps a Catholic bishop in Europe can travel to Romania to visit the bishops there?), namely, that anyone who defects from one article of the Holy Faith defects from It in Its entirety and is thus no longer a member of the Catholic Church.
Among others, Saint Francis de Sales and Popes Leo XIII and Benedict XV made this very clear:
With reference to its object, faith cannot be greater for some truths than for others. Nor can it be less with regard to the number of truths to be believed. For we must all believe the very same thing, both as to the object of faith as well as to the number of truths. All are equal in this because everyone must believe all the truths of faith--both those which God Himself has directly revealed, as well as those he has revealed through His Church. Thus, I must believe as much as you and you as much as I, and all other Christians similarly. He who does not believe all these mysteries is not Catholic and therefore will never enter Paradise. (Saint Francis de Sales, The Sermons of Saint Francis de Sales for Lent Given in 1622, republished by TAN Books and Publishers for the Visitation Monastery of Frederick, Maryland, in 1987, pp. 34-37.)
The Church, founded on these principles and mindful of her office, has done nothing with greater zeal and endeavour than she has displayed in guarding the integrity of the faith. Hence she regarded as rebels and expelled from the ranks of her children all who held beliefs on any point of doctrine different from her own. The Arians, the Montanists, the Novatians, the Quartodecimans, the Eutychians, did not certainly reject all Catholic doctrine: they abandoned only a certain portion of it. Still who does not know that they were declared heretics and banished from the bosom of the Church? In like manner were condemned all authors of heretical tenets who followed them in subsequent ages. "There can be nothing more dangerous than those heretics who admit nearly the whole cycle of doctrine, and yet by one word, as with a drop of poison, infect the real and simple faith taught by our Lord and handed down by Apostolic tradition" (Auctor Tract. de Fide Orthodoxa contra Arianos).
The practice of the Church has always been the same, as is shown by the unanimous teaching of the Fathers, who were wont to hold as outside Catholic communion, and alien to the Church, whoever would recede in the least degree from any point of doctrine proposed by her authoritative Magisterium. Epiphanius, Augustine, Theodore :, drew up a long list of the heresies of their times. St. Augustine notes that other heresies may spring up, to a single one of which, should any one give his assent, he is by the very fact cut off from Catholic unity. "No one who merely disbelieves in all (these heresies) can for that reason regard himself as a Catholic or call himself one. For there may be or may arise some other heresies, which are not set out in this work of ours, and, if any one holds to one single one of these he is not a Catholic" (S. Augustinus, De Haeresibus, n. 88). (Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum, June 29, 1896.)
No, “partial credit” does not cut it to retain one's membership in good standing within the maternal bosom of Holy Mother Church:
Such is the nature of Catholicism that it does not admit of more or less, but must be held as a whole or as a whole rejected: ‘This is the Catholic Faith, which unless a man believe faithfully and firmly, he cannot be saved’ (Athanasian Creed). There is no need of adding any qualifying terms to the profession of Catholicism: it is quite enough for each one to proclaim ‘Christian is my name and Catholic my surname,’ only let him endeavor to be in reality what he calls himself.
Besides, the Church demands from those who have devoted themselves to furthering her interests, something very different from the dwelling upon profitless questions; she demands that they should devote the whole of their energy to preserve the faith intact and unsullied by any breath of error, and follow most closely him whom Christ has appointed to be the guardian and interpreter of the truth. There are to be found today, and in no small numbers, men, of whom the Apostle says that: "having itching ears, they will not endure sound doctrine: but according to their own desires they will heap up to themselves teachers, and will indeed turn away their hearing from the truth, but will be turned unto fables" (II Tim. iv. 34). Infatuated and carried away by a lofty idea of the human intellect, by which God's good gift has certainly made incredible progress in the study of nature, confident in their own judgment, and contemptuous of the authority of the Church, they have reached such a degree of rashness as not to hesitate to measure by the standard of their own mind even the hidden things of God and all that God has revealed to men. Hence arose the monstrous errors of "Modernism," which Our Predecessor rightly declared to be "the synthesis of all heresies," and solemnly condemned. We hereby renew that condemnation in all its fulness, Venerable Brethren, and as the plague is not yet entirely stamped out, but lurks here and there in hidden places, We exhort all to be carefully here and there in hidden places, We exhort all to be carefully on their guard against any contagion of the evil, to which we may apply the words Job used in other circumstances: "It is a fire that devoureth even to destruction, and rooteth up all things that spring" (Job xxxi. 12). Nor do We merely desire that Catholics should shrink from the errors of Modernism, but also from the tendencies or what is called the spirit of Modernism. Those who are infected by that spirit develop a keen dislike for all that savours of antiquity and become eager searchers after novelties in everything: in the way in which they carry out religious functions, in the ruling of Catholic institutions, and even in private exercises of piety. Therefore it is Our will that the law of our forefathers should still be held sacred: "Let there be no innovation; keep to what has been handed down." In matters of faith that must be inviolably adhered to as the law; it may however also serve as a guide even in matters subject to change, but even in such cases the rule would hold: "Old things, but in a new way." (Pope Benedict XV, Ad Beatissimi Apostolorum, November 1, 1914.)
Pope Pius XI, writing in Mortalium Animos, January 6, 1928, also rejected any notion of a distinction between "fundamental" and allegedly "non-fundamental" doctrines of the Catholic Faith:
Besides this, in connection with things which must be believed, it is nowise licit to use that distinction which some have seen fit to introduce between those articles of faith which are fundamental and those which are not fundamental, as they say, as if the former are to be accepted by all, while the latter may be left to the free assent of the faithful: for the supernatural virtue of faith has a formal cause, namely the authority of God revealing, and this is patient of no such distinction. For this reason it is that all who are truly Christ's believe, for example, the Conception of the Mother of God without stain of original sin with the same faith as they believe the mystery of the August Trinity, and the Incarnation of our Lord just as they do the infallible teaching authority of the Roman Pontiff, according to the sense in which it was defined by the Ecumenical Council of the Vatican. Are these truths not equally certain, or not equally to be believed, because the Church has solemnly sanctioned and defined them, some in one age and some in another, even in those times immediately before our own? Has not God revealed them all? For the teaching authority of the Church, which in the divine wisdom was constituted on earth in order that revealed doctrines might remain intact for ever, and that they might be brought with ease and security to the knowledge of men, and which is daily exercised through the Roman Pontiff and the Bishops who are in communion with him, has also the office of defining, when it sees fit, any truth with solemn rites and decrees, whenever this is necessary either to oppose the errors or the attacks of heretics, or more clearly and in greater detail to stamp the minds of the faithful with the articles of sacred doctrine which have been explained. But in the use of this extraordinary teaching authority no newly invented matter is brought in, nor is anything new added to the number of those truths which are at least implicitly contained in the deposit of Revelation, divinely handed down to the Church: only those which are made clear which perhaps may still seem obscure to some, or that which some have previously called into question is declared to be of faith. (Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos, January 6, 1928.)
Unfortunately for Dr. Anca Maria-Cernea, her courageous plea in defense of Catholic truth fell on mostly deaf ears, including the ears that belong to the homosexualist (supporter of the homosexual agenda) named Vincent Nichols, the conciliar “archbishop” of Westminster, England, whose summary of his English language group’s examination of the third part of the revolutionary Instrumentum Laboris that has served as the basis of Circus Jorge’s “deliberations” included the following statement:
On the pastoral care of the divorced and remarried, the group looked at what an appropriate pastoral accompaniment of such couples should be. Such accompaniment must examine the situation of their marital condition, and also explore what it means to say that they are not excluded from the life of the Church.
The group proposed a pathway of discernment or ‘reverential listening’, attentive to the story of those who seek understanding and support. The first purpose of this attentive accompaniment would be to foster deeper discipleship with Christ based on the enduring bond of baptism, rather than addressing the question of admission to the sacraments of penance and Holy Communion.
This process of reverential listening would require an agreed framework with some clear elements. These elements might include:
- attending to the story of the first marriage, to its possible invalidity, seeing either if there is any reason for deeper investigation in the external forum, or if there are reasons for further examination in the internal forum, with recourse to a delegate of the bishop where one is established for this purpose
- attending to the wounds caused by the divorce, in the individuals, in their children, families and communities, including the community of the Church and the ways in which the responsibilities of the first marriage are being honored;
- attending to an account of the second marriage, its stability, fruitfulness and the responsibilities which flow from it;
- a focus on spiritual formation and spiritual growth, with an exploration of the impact of these events on the relationship with Christ; on the sense of repentance expressed for hurt and sin; on the current relationship with Christ, and with the parish community; on the continuing formation of conscience and the development of a more mature judgement of conscience on the present situation.
On the theme of spiritual communion, the group noted it is possible that persons, whose objective state of life – an irregular union – puts them in contradiction with the full meaning of the Eucharist, may not be subjectively culpable of any continuing state of sin. They may thereby rightly have a loving desire for Eucharistic union with Christ. While their objective state may prevent them from receiving the Body and Blood of Christ, they may properly develop the practice of Spiritual Communion, and thereby become more open to the saving grace of Jesus Christ and union in the Church.
On the subject of the admission of divorced and remarried to the sacraments, the group would request that the Holy Father, taking into account the rich material which has emerged during this synodal process, consider establishing during the Jubilee Year of Mercy a Special Commission to study in depth the ways in which the disciplines of the Church which flow from the indissolubility of marriage apply to the situation of people in irregular unions, including situations arising from the practice of polygamy.(Relatio – Circulus Anglicus “C”.)
Yes, you read that right: polygamy was cited as one of the “irregular situations” for which there needs to be a “pastoral strategy” and “reverential listening” concerning how the indissolubility of the Sacrament of Holy Marriage needs to be applied.
When did Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ ever engage in “reverential listening” to those who wanted to be reaffirmed in their sins?
When did any of Holy Mother Church’s martyrs do so?
As we know, the counterfeit church of conciliarism is a religion of man, not of the true God of Divine Revelation as He has revealed Himself to us through His true Church.
The mind of Jorge Mario Bergoglio on matters of morality was summarized perfectly by Pope Pius XII when he addressed the Thirtieth General Convention of the Society of Jesus in 1957 as our last true Sovereign Pontiff thus far condemned those who based their view of morality on the state of things as they are, not as God wills them to be.
This gold nugget of a quotation of Pope Pius XII’s address to the Thirtieth General Convention of the Society of Jesus in 1957 was contained in article on Catholic college education authored by the late Monsignor George A. Kelly, Ph.D:
The more serious cause, however, was the movement in high Jesuit circles to modernize the understanding of the magisterium by enlarging the freedom of Catholics, especially scholars, to dispute its claims and assertions. Jesuit scholars had already made up their minds that the Catholic creeds and moral norms needed nuance and correction. It was for this incipient dissent that the late Pius XII chastised the Jesuits’ 30th General Congregation one year before he died (1957). What concerned Pius XII most in that admonition was the doctrinal orthodoxy of Jesuits. Information had reached him that the Society’s academics (in France and Germany) were bootlegging heterodox ideas. He had long been aware of contemporary theologians who tried “to withdraw themselves from the Sacred Teaching authority and are accordingly in danger of gradually departing from revealed truth and of drawing others along with them in error” (Humani generis).
In view of what has gone on recently in Catholic higher education, Pius XII’s warnings to Jesuits have a prophetic ring to them. He spoke then of a “proud spirit of free inquiry more proper to a heterodox mentality than to a Catholic one”; he demanded that Jesuits not “tolerate complicity with people who would draw norms for action for eternal salvation from what is actually done, rather than from what should be done.” He continued, “It should be necessary to cut off as soon as possible from the body of your Society” such “unworthy and unfaithful sons.” Pius obviously was alarmed at the rise of heterodox thinking, worldly living, and just plain disobedience in Jesuit ranks, especially at attempts to place Jesuits on a par with their Superiors in those matters which pertained to Faith or Church order (The Pope Speaks, Spring 1958, pp. 447-453). (Monsignor George A. Kelly, Ph.D.,The Catholic College: Death, Judgment, Resurrection. See also the full Latin text of Pope Pius XII's address to the thirtieth general congregation of the Society of Jesus at page 806 of the Acta Apostolicae Sedis for 1957: AAS 49 . One will have to scroll down to page 806.)
This describes the report by Vicent Nichols and Diarmuid Martin perfectly. It also describes the very mindset of the lay Jesuit revolutionary, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, and his band of conciliar revolutonaries. Bergoglio is simply implementing now what he has believed all along, and he learned it from the Jesuit revolutionaries from whom he took his training during the "Second" Vatican Council. Those Jesuit revolutionaries believed exactly what Pope Pius XII had condemned
Although the late Monsignor Kelly, whom I knew and consulted on occasion in the 1980s and 1990s, tried to “save” that which was beyond saving because it was in the hands of apostates, the history he provided should illustrate the fact that not all was well in the 1950s, the supposed “golden era” of Catholicism in the United States of America. All manner of revolutionaries, including those within the Society of Jesus, got imprimaturs from like-minded Americanist bishops, men such as John Dearden, Francis Spellman, Richard Cushing, Albert Meyer, et al,, to push the envelope, especially in the field of bioethics, as far as they could during the waning years of the pontificate of our last true pope thus far, Pope Pius XII.
Pope Pius XII, however, knew of the “proud spirit of free inquiry more proper to a heterodox mentality than to a Catholic one.” His demand that the Jesuits not “tolerate complicity with people who would draw norms for action for eternal salvation from what is actually done, rather than from what should be done” applied to those who formed the likes of the late Joseph Louis Bernardin in the Archdiocese of Atlanta, Georgia, and a certain man named Jorge Mario Bergoglio in Argentina. The stage for the conciliar revolution was pretty well set by the time of the death of Pope Pius XII, who demanded that the likes of those “educating” Bergoglio “be cut off as soon as possible from the body of” the Society of Jesus as they were “unworthy sons.”
The “Second” Vatican Council and the “magisterium” of Giovanni Battista Enrico Antonio Maria/Paul the Sick, merely gave free rein to the bevy of not-so-clandestine Modernists who were simply waiting for the “liberal” “pope” to be elected so as to institutionalize all of their false beliefs, starting with ecumenism and a praxis-based concept of morality that was and remains nothing other than the old “situation ethics” that had been popularized by some of the “mainstream” Protestant sects and by supposed “philosophers," psychologists, social workers, sociologists and all-around nitwits.
It is indeed very ironic that Jorge Mario Bergoglio and his fellow revolutionaries, most especially men such as Walter Kasper, Reinhard Marx, Godfried Daneels, Johan Bonny (see “Bishop” of Antwerp, Belgium, wants Church to Accept Homosexual Relationships), Vincent Nichols, “think it a strange and intolerable thing” to tell sinners to “give up their habits of sin, which have now gained all the force of nature by long possession.” Jorge and his crew believe that to call upon hardened sinners to give up their sins is “judgmental” and “intolerant,” and this is precisely why the Argentine Apostate is making sure that his agenda is made irreversible to the point that no one among “conservative” or supposedly “traditional” Catholics can hold out hope of a “long shot” within the ranks of the conciliar church to effect a “restoration.”
There can be no “restoration” coming out of any false church as such an entity is founded in rebellion against God as He Has revealed Himself to us exclusively through His Catholic Church. God is not “evolving.” Our understanding of His Divine Revelation is not “evolving.” God is immutable, and He hates heresy.
Father Frederick William Faber made this point abundantly clear in The Dolors of Mary/The Foot of the Cross:
The love of God brings many new instincts into the heart. Heavenly and noble as they are, they bear no resemblance to what men would call the finer and more heroic developments of character. A spiritual discernment is necessary to their right appreciation. They are so unlike the growth of earth, that they must expect to meet on earth with only suspicion, misunderstanding, and dislike. It is not easy to defend them from a controversial point of view; for our controversy is obliged to begin by begging the question, or else it would be unable so much as to state its case. The axioms of the world pass current in the world, the axioms of the gospel do not. Hence the world has its own way. It talks us down. It tries us before tribunals where our condemnation is secured beforehand. It appeals to principles which are fundamental with most men but are heresies with us. Hence its audience takes part with it against us. We are foreigners, and must pay the penalty of being so. If we are misunderstood, we had no right to reckon on any thing else, being as we are, out of our own country. We are made to be laughed at. We shall be understood in heaven. Woe to those easy-going Christians whom the world can understand, and will tolerate because it sees they have a mind to compromise!
The love of souls is one of these instincts which the love of Jesus brings into our hearts. To the world it is proselytism, there mere wish to add to a faction, one of the selfish developments of party spirit. One while the stain of lax morality is affixed to it, another while the reproach of pharisaic strictness! For what the world seems to suspect least of all in religion is consistency. But the love of souls, however apostolic, is always subordinate to love of Jesus. We love souls because of Jesus, not Jesus because of souls. Thus there are times and places when we pass from the instinct of divine love to another, from the love of souls to the hatred of heresy. This last is particularly offensive to the world. So especially opposed is it to the spirit of the world, that, even in good, believing hearts, every remnant of worldliness rises in arms against this hatred of heresy, embittering the very gentlest of characters and spoiling many a glorious work of grace. Many a convert, in whose soul God would have done grand things, goes to his grave a spiritual failure, because he would not hate heresy. The heart which feels the slightest suspicion against the hatred of heresy is not yet converted. God is far from reigning over it yet with an undivided sovereignty. The paths of higher sanctity are absolutely barred against it. In the judgment of the world, and of worldly Christians, this hatred of heresy is exaggerated, bitter, contrary to moderation, indiscreet, unreasonable, aiming at too much, bigoted, intolerant, narrow, stupid, and immoral. What can we say to defend it? Nothing which they can understand. We had, therefore, better hold our peace. If we understand God, and He understands us, it is not so very hard to go through life suspected, misunderstood and unpopular. The mild self-opinionatedness of the gentle, undiscerning good will also take the world's view and condemn us; for there is a meek-loving positiveness about timid goodness which is far from God, and the instincts of whose charity is more toward those who are less for God, while its timidity is searing enough for harsh judgment. There are conversions where three-quarters of the heart stop outside the Church and only a quarter enters, and heresy can only be hated by an undivided heart. But if it is hard, it has to be borne. A man can hardly have the full use of his senses who is bent on proving to the world, God's enemy, that a thorough-going Catholic hatred of heresy is a right frame of man. We might as well force a blind man to judge a question of color. Divine love inspheres in us a different circle of life, motive, and principle, which is not only not that of the world, but in direct enmity with it. From a worldly point of view, the craters in the moon are more explicable things than we Christians with our supernatural instincts. From the hatred of heresy we get to another of these instincts, the horror of sacrilege. The distress caused by profane words seems to the world but an exaggerated sentimentality. The penitential spirit of reparation which pervades the whole Church is, on its view, either a superstition or an unreality. The perfect misery which an unhallowed touch of the Blessed Sacrament causes to the servants of God provokes either the world's anger or its derision. Men consider it either altogether absurd in itself, or at any rate out of all proportion; and, if otherwise they have proofs of our common sense, they are inclined to put down our unhappiness to sheer hypocrisy. The very fact that they do not believe as we believe removes us still further beyond the reach even of their charitable comprehension. If they do not believe in the very existence our sacred things, how they shall they judge the excesses of a soul to which these sacred things are far dearer than itself? (Father Frederick Faber, The Foot of the Cross, published originally in England in 1857 under the title of The Dolors of Mary, republished by TAN Books and Publishers, pp. 291-295.)
The counterfeit church of conciliarism has been awash in heresy from its beginnings as it is premised upon Modernism’s condemned precept of “the evolution of dogma” that is nothing other than a denial of the very immutability of God Himself. It is thus no exaggeration to state that the counterfeit church of conciliarism is premised upon a denial of God’s very Divine Nature as He has revealed It to us exclusively through His Catholic Church.
From the denial of God’s Divine Nature flows quite logically the heresies associated with the Divine Constitution of his Holy Catholic Church by means of the “new ecclesiology,” false ecumenism, “inter-religious prayer” services and “episcopal collegiality. Similarly, the denial of God’s Divine Nature is responsible for the rejection of the Social Reign of Christ the King over men and their nations in favor of the heresy of “religious liberty” that is so responsible for producing havoc all throughout the supposedly “civilized world,” starting in the new places that gave birth to it, the United States of America and the “First Republic of France.” And it is with this "civilized world" that the counterfeit church of conciliarism has made its "official reconciliation" and that is being celebrated by many of the performers under the big tent at Cricus Jorge.
The counterfeit church of conciliarism is awash in abominable sacrileges, starting with the Protestant and Judeo-Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical service and its other false sacramentally barren rites (“episcopal consecration,” “priestly ordination,” “confirmation,” “anointing of the sick”) and the wretched displays of wanton debauchery spawned thereby.
Ah, but our relatives, former friends and acquaintances think that we are the problem for holding fast to the truths of the true Faith that Jorge’s new “cardinals” despise just as much as he does.
We must always remember these words of Saint Athanasius:
May God console you!...What saddens you...is the fact that others have occupied the churches by violence, while during this time you are on the outside. It is a fact that they have the premises -- but you have the Apostolic Faith. They can occupy our churches, but they are outside the true Faith. You remain outside the places of worship, but the Faith dwells within you. Let us consider: What is more important, the place or the Faith? The true Faith, obviously. Who has lost and who has won in this struggle? The one who keeps the premises or the one who keeps the Faith?
True, the premises are good when the Apostolic Faith is preached there -- they are holy if everything takes place there in a holy way...
You are the ones who are happy. You who remain within the Church by your faith, who hold firmly to the foundations of the Faith which has come down to us from Apostolic Tradition. And if an execrable jealousy has tried to shake it on a number of occasions, it has not succeeded. They are the ones who have broken away from it in the present crisis.
No one, ever, will prevail against your faith, beloved brothers. And we believe that God will give us our churches back some day.
Thus, the more violently they try to occupy the places of worship, the more they separate themselves from the Church. They claim that they represent the Church, but in reality, they are the ones who are expelling themselves from It and going astray.
Even if Catholics faithful to Tradition are reduced to a handful, they are the ones who are the true Church of Jesus Christ. (Letter of St. Athanasius to his flock.)
"What is more important, the place or the Faith? The true Faith, obviously. Who has lost and who has won in this struggle? The one who keeps the premises or the one who keeps the Faith?"
These are words to remember. No place, not even places where the Holy Mass was once offered by true bishops and true priests, is more important than the Faith. We must seek out that true Faith today as we make no concessions to conciliarism or to the nonexistent legitimacy of its false shepherds, recognizing, of course, that we are not one whit better than anyone else and that we have much for which to make reparation as the consecrated slaves of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, praying as many Rosaries each day as our states-in-life permit.
Every Rosary we pray, offered up to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, will help to make reparation for our sins, which are so responsible for the state of the Church Militant on earth and for that of the world-at-large, and those of the whole world, including the conciliarists who blaspheme God regularly by means of lies such as the "hermeneutic of continuity and discontinuity." The final triumph belongs to the Immaculate Heart of the very Mother of God who brought forth her Divine Son on Christmas Day and presented Him in the Temple on the same day as her own ritual purification that is commemorated this Saturday, the Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
The conciliarists lose in the end. Christ the King will emerge triumphant once again as the fruit of the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of His Mother and our Queen, Mary Immaculate. The Church Militant will rise again from her mystical death and burial.
Keep praying. Keep sacrificing. Keep fulfilling Our Lady's Fatima Message in your own lives.
Isn't it time to pray a Rosary right now?
Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon!
Viva Cristo Rey! Vivat Christus Rex!
Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.
Saint Joseph, pray for us.

From Mrs. Randy Engel's The Rite of Sodomy
[Atila] Guimarães quotes Franco Bellegrandi, a former member of the Vatican Noble Guard, part of the papal military corps, who witnessed the unfortunate changes that occurred at the Vatican after Pope Paul VI took office.
Bellegrandi repeats the charge that while Archbishop of Milan, Montini, dressed in civilian clothes, was picked up by the local police on one of the archbishop's nocturnal visits to the male brothels of the city.
The former Vatican guard describes the homosexual colonization process that he says began under Pope John XXIII, but which accelerated under Montini's rule--a process with [which] the reader should by now be thoroughly familiar. Bellegrandi says that old employees were turned out of their jobs at the Vatican to make room for Montini's favored brethren afflicted with the same vice. They in turn brought along their favorite catamites--"effeminate young men wearing elegant uniforms and make-up on their faces to dissimulate their beards," says Bellegrandi.
Bellegrandi says that he was told by an official of the Vatican security service that Montini's actor friend was permitted free access to the pontifical apartments and was seen taking the elevator late at night.
One of the statements made by Bellegrandi that attracted my attention was that Montini no sooner took office than he was subject to blackmail by Italian Freemasons. In exchange for their silence regarding Archbishop Montini's furtive sojourns to Switzerland to rendezvous with his actor-lover, who appears to have been quite open about his relationship with the prelate, the Masons demanded that the pope eliminate the Church's traditional ban on cremation after death. The pope complied. (Mrs. Randy Engel, The Rite of Sodomy, p. 1156)
An elderly gentleman from Paris who worked as an official interpreter for high-level clerics at the Vatican in the early 1950s told this writer that the Soviets blackmailed Montini into revealing the names of priests whom the Vatican had clandestinely sent behind the Iron Curtain to minister to Catholics in the Soviet Union during the Cold War. The Soviet secret police were on hand as soon as the priests crossed over the Russian border and the priest infiltrators were either shot or sent to the gulag.
The extent to which Pope Paul VI was subject to blackmail by the enemies of the Church will probably never be known. It may be that, in so far as the Communists and the Socialists were concerned, blackmail was entirely unnecessary given Montini's cradle to grave fascination and affinity for the Left. On the other hand, the Italian Freemasons, M16, the OSS and later the CIA and the Mafia were likely to have used blackmail and extortion against Montini beginning early in his career as a junior diplomat, then as Archbishop of Milan and finally as Pope Paul VI.
There can be no question that Pope Paul VI's homosexuality was instrumental in the paradigm shift that saw the rise of the Homosexual Collective in the Catholic Church in the United States, at the Vatican and around the world in the mid-20th century.
Pope Paul VI played a decisive role in the selection and advancement of many homosexual members of the American hierarchy, including Joseph Cardinal Bernardin, Terence Cardinal Cooke, John Cardinal Wright and Archbishop Rembert Weakland and Bishops George H. Guilfoyle, Francis Mugavero, Joseph Hart, Joseph Ferrario, James Rausch and their heirs.
The knowledge that a homosexual sat in the Chair of Peter--knowledge that spread like wild-fire on the "gay" gossip circuit--would certainly have served as an inducement for homosexual men to aspire to the priesthood and even prompt them to contemplate the unthinkable--a religious order or community composed exclusively of sodomites.
Most important, the long-guarded quasi-secret of Paul VI's homosexual life has, for decades, contributed to the silence and cover-up by the American hierarchy on the issue of homosexuality in general and the criminal activities of pederast priests in particular.
But it is a secret no longer.
The final piece of the puzzle has been put in place.
