Credo in unum Deum, Patrem omnipoténtem, factórem coeli et terræ, visibílium ómnium et in visibílium. Et in unum Dóminum Jesum Christum, Fílium Dei unigénitum. Et ex Patre natum ante ómnia saecula. Deum de Deo, lumen de lúmine, Deum verum de Deo vero. Génitum, non factum, consubstantiálem Patri: per quem ómnia facta sunt. Qui propter nos hómines et propter nostram salútem descéndit de coelis. Et incarnátus est de Spíritu Sancto ex María Vírgine: Et homo factus est. Crucifíxus étiam pro nobis: sub Póntio Piláto passus, et sepúltus est. Et resurréxit tértia die, secúndum Scriptúras. Et ascéndit in coelum: sedet ad déxteram Patris. Et íterum ventúrus est cum glória judicáre vivos et mórtuos: cujus regni non erit finis. Et in Spíritum Sanctum, Dóminum et vivificántem: qui ex Patre Filióque procédit. Qui cum Patre et Fílio simul adorátur et conglorificátur: qui locútus est per Prophétas. Et unam sanctam cathólicam et apostolicam Ecclésiam. Confíteor unum baptísma in remissiónem peccatórum. Et exspécto resurrectiónem mortuórum. Et vitam ventúri saeculi. Amen.
No one who does not profess the Nicence-Constantinopolitan Creed as it has been explicated by the Catholic Church, she who is the one and only true Church founded by Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ upon the Rock of Peter, the Pope, the true faith of the true God of Divine Revelation, the Most Blessed Trinity, please God in his "thoughts" or his "feelings" or his participation in false worship.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio possesseth not the Catholic Faith.
While this is pretty obvious by now to any Catholic who has not been brainwashed by the steady dose of the religious indifferentism that has been propagated by the conciliar “popes” and their “bishops” in the past fifty years since the close of the “Second” Vatican Council, there are time when the Argentine Apostate feels compelled to add multiple exclamation points to the fact as if to scream, “Look, you fools, I am not Catholic. I believe in the One World Religion of ‘love.’ I am the very personification of the following warning about me given by Pope Saint Pius X in Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910:
And now, overwhelmed with the deepest sadness, We ask Ourselves, Venerable Brethren, what has become of the Catholicism of the Sillon? Alas! this organization which formerly afforded such promising expectations, this limpid and impetuous stream, has been harnessed in its course by the modern enemies of the Church, and is now no more than a miserable affluent of the great movement of apostasy being organized in every country for the establishment of a One-World Church which shall have neither dogmas, nor hierarchy, neither discipline for the mind, nor curb for the passions, and which, under the pretext of freedom and human dignity, would bring back to the world (if such a Church could overcome) the reign of legalized cunning and force, and the oppression of the weak, and of all those who toil and suffer. (Pope Saint Pius X, Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910.)
Thanks to my wife, principally, and our daughter, a name was devised for this One World Ecumenical Church that Shimon Peres had proposed to his pal Jorge Mario Bergoglio to establish and promote in September of 2014:
United Nations Treaty of Religions United Everywhere, which stands for UNTRUE.
Everything about the counterfeit church of conciliarism is untrue, starting with its claim to be the Catholic Church when it is, of course, her counterfeit ape, a home of veritable figures of Antichrist, men who fear not to blaspheme God, reaffirm adherents of false religions in their falsehoods to the point of their very deaths, stage sacrilegious liturgical events that would have shocked even the pagans of yore, and propagate every manner of false doctrine that has been condemned solemnly by the authority of Holy Mother Church.
Senor Jorge is adding more exclamation points to naked apostasy done by recording a slickly produced video that serves as his “prayer intention” for the month of January. The video, which is embedded into a post at Novs Ordo Watch Wire, features a Buddhist, a Talmudist, a conciliar presbyter, and a Mohammedan stating their “beliefs,” such as they are. Each of these characters is central out of the One World Ecumenical Church Office of Central Casting. Each is a stereotype of religious indifferentism and syncretism by communicating the message that the only thing that matters is “love.”
As it is impossible for me to watch videos on my computer as to do so would eat into the monthly allotment of gigabytes provided us by our lousy internet service, I had to resort to watching this wretched piece of nonstop apostasy on my “smart” phone. It was when watching it for the third time that I paused it whenever the English subtitle changed in order to provide a transcription of words spoken during the video’s one minute, thirty-two seconds of play time.
Those who have the ability to view the video should do so for themselves as it is quite a piece of apostasy, that is, an abandonment of the Catholic Church as the one and only true Church founded by Our Lord Himself wherein alone can be found the path to salvation.
For the purposes of this present commentary, though, I will provide you with the transcript of the script as found in the English subtitles and to explain some of the video's major scene.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio (shown seated, either speaking into the camera or reading from the script as various scenes were played) spoke first:
Most of the planet’s inhabitants declare themselves to be believers.
This should lead to dialogue among religions
We should not stop praying and collaborating with those who think differently. (Subtitles from January, 2016, Apostate's Intentions Video.)
The video then shows the adherents of four religions, including the false religion of conciliarism, explaining what they believed:
I believe in Buddha.
I believe in God. (Jew)
I believe in Jesus Christ. (conciliar presbyter)
I believe in God. Allah. (Mohammedan) (Subtitles from January, 2016, Apostate's Intentions Video.)
Bergoglio is then shown again, saying the following:
May think differently, feel differently, seeking God or meeting God in different ways.
In this crowd, this range of religions, there is only one certainty we have for all: we are all children of God.
The “believers” are then shown individually explaining what unites them all, a false concept of “love”:
I believe in love (Buddhist)
I believe in love. (Jew)
I believe in love. (Mohammedan)
I believe in love. (presbyter)
Bergoglio concludes his own part in the proceedings by asking those viewing the video to join in his apostate “prayer” intention:
I hope that you will spread my prayer request for this month: That sincere dialogue among men and women of different faiths may produce the fruits of peace and justice.
I have confidence in your prayers. (Subtitles from January, 2016, Apostate's Intentions Video.)
Guess what, Jorge?
I have confidence that you on the path to Hell if you do not repent of your apostasies before you die, and you are going to be eighty years old in eleven months, eight days.
Those who have viewed the video will have seen that it ended with the image below, which shows the Buddhist holding a statuette of a slender Buddha, who had probably viewed Tommy Lasorda’s Ultra Slim Fast commercials in the 1980s (see Ultra Slim-Fast ad w/Tommy Lasorda), the Mohammedan holding his false religious sect’s “prayer beads,” which are called the “Seb’hhah” that consists of ninety-nine beads, the Talumdic Menorah, and a statuette of a baby to signify the Baby Jesus.
Apart from the religiously indifferentist nature of this propaganda video in behalf of the One World Ecumenical Church, it is interesting that the very sign of the Catholic Faith, the Holy Cross, is not displayed at any point in the video. A little figurine of the Baby Jesus, but not the Holy Cross, the very instrument on which Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ wrought our salvation and which Holy Mother Church and countless of her martyrs have held high against heretics and infidels throughout the course even since Pentecost Sunday without any degree of hesitation whatsoever.
The Baby Jesus was born to suffer and die thirty-three years later on the wood of the Holy Cross to make atonement for our sins, and it is this one Sacrifice of Himself to His Co-Equal, Co-Eternal God the Father in Spirit and Truth that the Catholic Church re-presents or perpetuates in an unbloody manner in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. The sign of the Catholic Faith is the Holy Cross.
Then again, it is only natural for a false religion that has made its Roman rite liturgy into an exercise of communitarian fellowship with egalitarian features (the abolition of the Communion rail, standing for the reception of what purports to be Holy Communion, the placement of Cranmer tables in the middle of so-called “churches” in the round, a proliferation of the laity into what passes for a “sanctuary” to read and to distribute what are believed to be the Sacred Species, etc.) to abandon the Holy Cross. After all, this false religious sect’s “popes” and “bishops” have refused to invoke the Holy Name of Jesus in “mixed company.”
Still and all, the absence of the Cross in that wretched video leapt out at me as I watched the “believers” place their symbols next to each other as though to emphasize what Bergoglio had said in his script, namely, that we must “respect” those who “think differently, feel differently.”
Belief in the Catholic Faith is not a matter of “feeling.” It is a matter of loving God as He has revealed Himself to us exclusively through His true Church.
Jorge, who will eighty years of age on December 16, 2016, is an aged hippie revolutionary. Truth matters not to this man. The only thing that matters is “love.” Put a black mop head wig on this man and he could sing “All you need is love” with the surviving members of the marijuana smoking revolutionaries responsible for the destruction of the moral lives of so many millions of baby-boomers named “The Beatles.”
Love, however, is act of the will. We must love God as He has revealed Himself to us through His true Church, and we must accept everything that she teaches us in His Holy Name and by His Divine authority without a moment of hesitation or doubt.
A believing Catholic is supposed to pray the Acts of Faith, Hope, and Charity every day in his morning prayers. The certainty with which we must hold the truths of the Holy Faith have been summarized very succinctly in the Act of Faith:
O my God, I firmly believe that Thou are one God in three divine Persons, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. I believe that Thy divine son became Man, died for our sins, and that He will come to judge the living and the dead. I believe these and all the truths which the Holy Catholic Church teaches, because Thou hast revealed them, who canst neither deceive nor be deceived.
Every religion other than Catholicism is false:
For all the gods of the Gentiles are devils: but the Lord made the heavens. (Psalm 95: 5)
The prophet Elias destroyed the devils of Ba’al atop Mount Carmel, signifying a direct connection between the Brown Scapular that Our Lady gave to Saint Simon Stock and firm opposition to any kind of false ecumenism, including any kind of recognition of “worth” accorded to any false religion and its beliefs, rituals and practices:
“‘Nevertheless send now, and gather unto me all Israel, unto Mount Carmel, and the prophets of Baal four hundred and fifty, and the prophets of the groves four hundred, who eat at Jezebel’s table.’
“Achab sent to all the children of Israel, and gathered together the prophets unto Mount Carmel.
“And Elias coming to all the people, said: ‘How long do you halt between two sides? If the Lord be God, follow Him: but if Baal, follow him.’ And the people did not answer him a word.
“And Elias said again to the people: ‘I only remain a prophet of the Lord: but the prophets of Baal are four hundred and fifty men. Let two bullocks be given us, and let them choose one bullock and cut it in pieces and lay it upon wood, but put no fire under: and I will dress the other bullock, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under it. Call ye the names of your gods, and I will call on the name of my Lord; and the God that shall answer by fire, let him be God.’ And all of the people answering said: ‘A very good proposal.’
“Then Elias said to the prophets of Baal: ‘Choose you one bullock and dress it first, because you are many; and call on the names of your gods, but put no fire under.’
“And they took the bullock which he gave them, and dressed it; and they called on the name of Baal from morning even till noon, saying: ‘O Baal, hear us.’ But there was no voice, nor any that answered: and they leaped over the altar that they had made.
“And when it was now noon, Elias jested at them, saying: ‘Cry with a louder voice: for he is a God, and perhaps he is talking, or he is in an inn, or on a journey, or perhaps he is asleep, and must be awaked.’
“So they cried with a loud voice, and cut themselves after their manner with knives and lancets, till they were covered with blood. And after midday was past, and while they were prophesying, the time was come of offering sacrifice, and there was no voice heard, nor did any one answer, nor regard them as they prayed: Elias said to the people: ‘Come ye unto me.’ And the people coming near unto him, he repaired the altar of the Lord, that was broken down:
“And he took twelve stones according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, to whom the word of the Lord came, saying: ‘Israel shall be thy name.’ And he built with the stones an altar to the name of the Lord: and he made a trench for water, of the breadth of two furrows round about the altar. And he laid the wood in order, and cut the bullock in pieces, and laid it upon the wood.
“And he said: “Fill four buckets with water, and pour it upon the burnt offering, and upon the wood.’ And again he said: ‘Do the same the second time.’ And when they had done it the second time, he said: ‘Do the same also the third time.’ And they did so the third time. And the water run about the altar, and the trench was filled with water.
“And when it was now time to offer the holocaust, Elias the prophet came near and said: ‘O Lord God of Abraham and Isaac, and Israel, show this day that thou art the God of Israel, and I thy servant, and that according to they commandment I have done all these things. Hear me, O Lord, hear me: that this people may learn, that thou art the Lord God, and that thou hast turned their heart again.’
“Then the fire of the Lord fell, and consumed the holocaust, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench. And when all the people saw this, they fell on their faces, and they said: ‘The Lord he is God, the Lord he is God.’ And Elias said to them: ‘Take the prophets of Baal, and let not one of them escape.’ And when they had taken them, Elias brought them down to the torrent Cison, and killed them there” (3 Kings 18:19-40)
It was from Mount Carmel that many of the disciples of Elias and Eliseus were called by Our Lady to be present in Jerusalem on Pentecost Sunday, and thus to be added to the ranks of Holy Church to sing her own praises on Mount Carmel, as Dom Prosper Gueranger, O.S.B. related in The Liturgical Year:
They saw this second Eve, they conversed with her, they felt for her that filial affection wherewith she inspired all of the disciples of Jesus. The Liturgy will speak to us at another season of these favoured ones. The promise is fulfilled to-day. In the lessons of the feast the Church tells us how the disciples of Elias and Eliseus became Christians at the first preaching of the Apostles, and being permitted to hear the sweet words of the Blessed Virgin and enjoy an unspeakable intimacy with her, they felt their veneration for her immensely increased. Returning to the loved mountain, where their less fortunate fathers had lived but in hope, they built, on the very spot where Elias had seen a little cloud rise up out of the sea, an oratory to the purest of virgins; hence they obtained the name of the Brothers of Blessed Mary of Mount Carmel. (Dom Prosper Gueranger, O.S.B., The Liturgical Year.)
The readings for the Divine Office for the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel contains the following description of this call:
When on the holy day of Pentecost the apostles, through heavenly inspiration, spoke divers tongues and worked many miracles by the invocation of the most holy name of Jesus, it is said that many men who were walking in the footsteps of Elias and Eliseus, and had been prepared for the coming of Christ by the preaching of John the Baptist saw and acknowledged the truth, and at once embraced the faith of the Gospel. These new Christians were so happy as to be able to enjoy familiar intercourse with the Blessed Virgin, and venerated her with so special an affection, that they, before all others, built a chapel to the purest of Virgins on that very spot of Mount Carmel where Elias of old had seen the cloud, a remarkable type the Virgin ascending.
Many times each day they came together to the new oratory, and with pious ceremonies, prayers and praises honoured the most Blessed Virgin as the special protectress of their Order. For this reason, people from all parts began to call them the Brethren of the Blessed Mary of Mount Carmel; and the Sovereign Pontiffs not only affirmed this title, but also granted special indulgences to whoever called either the whole Order or individual Brothers by that name. (Matins, The Divine Office, Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, July 16.)
It was on Mount Carmel that Elias, who was battling King Achab's false ecumenism of worshiping false idols, thereby betraying the true religion of the time, Judaism, by violating the First Commandment, slew the prophets of Baal (3 Kings 18:19-40).
As a Catholic priest noted nearly seven years ago now, Eliseus, the disciple of Elias, asked for a "double spirit" from his master prior to Elias's being taken up in a fiery chariot (4 Kings 2: 6-13). Elias's mantle fell on Eliseus as he, Elias, was being whisked away in the fiery chariot Elias's mantle was to protect Eliseus from the spirit of false ecumenism that had prevailed on Mount Carmel and was sponsored by the king himself, who as a figure of the Antichrist.
The priest also said that it was that same "double spirit" of Elias was given by Our Lady when she gave Saint Simon Stock her Brown Scapular of Mount Carmel on July 16, 1251, as a protection against all spiritual dangers, including the false ecumenism of our own day which so offends God in our day as it offended Him as it was practiced on Mount Carmel when Elias slew the prophets of Baal. False ecumenism makes a mockery of His First Commandment. The Brown Scapular of Our Lady of Mount Carmel is thus a paramount protection against the false ecumenism of the Modernists that has been practiced with such abandon by the conciliar "popes" and their minions.
The only difference between Jorge Mario Bergoglio and his predecessors in the counterfeit church of conciliarism is that he is making no effort to mask his belief that all religions please God and provide a sure path to salvation. His false religion, conciliarisim, is one of “feelings” and “universal salvation” based on a false concept of “mercy” that reaffirms hardened sinners, including those guilty of unbelief in Our Lord’s Sacred Divinity and/or guilty of unbelief in the Catholic Church as the true Church founded by God Himself.
The apostasies of conciliarism has its roots in Judeo-Masonry, which served as progenitor of sorts to Modernism’s embrace of religious indifferentism and of reaffirming all hardened sinners in their sins, something that Pope Clement XII pointed out in In Eminenti, April 28, 1738, which was the first papal encyclical letter that condemned Freemasonry, which was then in its nascent stages after emerging in England in the year 1717:
Therefore, bearing in mind the great harm which is often caused by such Societies or Conventicles not only to the peace of the temporal state but also to the well-being of souls, and realizing that they do not hold by either civil or canonical sanctions; and since We are taught by the divine word that it is the part of faithful servant and of the master of the Lord's household to watch day and night lest such men as these break into the household like thieves, and like foxes seek to destroy the vineyard; in fact, to prevent the hearts of the simple being perverted, and the innocent secretly wounded by their arrows, and to block that broad road which could be opened to the uncorrected commission of sin and for the other just and reasonable motives known to Us; We therefore, having taken counsel of some of Our Venerable Brothers among the Cardinals of the Holy Roman Church, and also of Our own accord and with certain knowledge and mature deliberations, with the plenitude of the Apostolic power do hereby determine and have decreed that these same Societies, Companies, Assemblies, Meetings, Congregations, or Conventicles of Liberi Muratori or Francs Massons, or whatever other name they may go by, are to be condemned and prohibited, and by Our present Constitution, valid for ever, We do condemn and prohibit them. (Pope Clement XII, In Eminenti, April 28, 1738.)
Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s “Synod ‘15” was all about opening the broad road to reaffirm hardened sinners in their completely uncorrected commission of sin, and it is this same spirit of reaffirmation that is at the foundation of the recent “prayer intention video” as this insidious pest makes it appear as though one religion is as good as another.
Although part two of this series will provide other examples of papal condemnation of the spirit of Freemasonry as well as provide examples of papal condemnations of religious indifferentism and of the prohibited nature of praying with non-Catholics, it is interesting to point out for present purposes that Pope Clement XII issued In Eminenti one day before the Feast of Saint Peter Martyr (Saint Peter of Verona), O.P., who was killed by the heretics of his own day, the Cathars (Albingensians). Saint Peter Martyr did not practice false ecumenism with the Cathars; he sought their conversion, and he was willing to shed his very blood to defend the Holy Faith while avoiding even the appearance of giving any kind of legitimacy to the heretics and their falsehoods.
St. Peter Martyr of Verona was not the first Dominican to die in the cause of truth, but so great was he revered for his sanctity that he was canonized the year after his death; hence he became the type of fearless apostle of the Order.
More remarkable than his death is the record of his life. Born of heretical parents, and surrounded during his whole childhood with the most harmful theories and practices, Peter preserved a purity of faith and morals which was nothing short of miraculous. Continually ridiculed and harangued by his relatives, he remained untarnished in both body and soul. Sent to Bologna to the university of the age of fifteen, he met Saint Dominic, and instantly, with no backward glances at the wealth and power he was foregoing, threw himself at the saint’s feet and begged admission to the Order. He was present at the death of St. Dominic, and shared in the legacy of primitive zeal and courage passed to the sons of a saint.
While still a student, Peter underwent a severe trial. He was publicly reprimanded and placed on punishment because a brother, passing Peter’s cell late at night, thought he had heard women’s voices in the room. The voices were those of angels, who frequently visited the saint: but in his humility he thought it better to accept the punishment and say nothing about it. He was sent to another convent to do penance, and his ordination was delayed. Peter prayed and found great strength in prayer: but, being human, he felt the disgrace keenly, and he one day complained to our Lord: “Lord, Thou knowest that I am innocent of this: why dost Thou permit them to believe it of me?” A sorrowful voice replied from the crucifix: “And I, Peter, what have I done that they should do this to Me?” Peter complained no more. The truth was eventually discovered, and Peter, reinstated in the community, resumed his studies. He prayed daily for the happiness of dying a martyr’s death.
Peter soon became a celebrated preacher and engaged in disputes with the heretics all over northern Italy. Many miracles were worked through his prayers, to the rage of the heretics. In one city, a prominent man had been won to heresy, because the devil, taking the appearance of the Blessed Mother, appeared at the heretics’ meetings and encouraged him to join them. Peter, determined to win the man back to the truth, went to the meeting of the heretics, and, when the devil appeared in his disguise, held up a small pyx in which he had placed a consecrated Host. “If you are the Mother of God,” cried Peter, “adore your Son!” The devil fled in dismay, and many heretics were converted. Enraged by Peter’s success, his enemies made plans to destroy him.
Sold like his Master for thirty pieces of silver, Peter was ambushed and killed on the road to Milan. He went to his death singing, which is the traditional Dominican way to enter heaven. Undaunted by the threats of the heretics, he walked along singing the Easter Sequence, and fell unprotesting beneath the blows of the assassins. One of his murderers, touched by grace at the sight of a saint, was converted, eventually took the Dominican habit, and was popularly known as “Blessed” Carino. To him, as to us, Peter has pointed out the way to heaven when he traced on the dusty of the road, in his own blood, the creed that had highlighted his path: “Credo in unum Deum.” (Sister Jean Mary Dorcy, O.P., Saint Dominic’s Family: Lives and Legends. Dubuque, Iowa: The Priory Press, 1964, pp. 45-46.)
Credo in unum Deum.
It is impossibe to believe in the one God of Divine Revelation, the Most Blessed Trinity, while reaffirming those who believe and worship false gods.
Saint Peter Martyr wrote the words "Credo in unum Deum" in his own very blood.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio spits on those words as he reduces religious faith to a matter of "thinking" or "feeling" "differently, rejecting the timple belief that the Catholic Faith alone is based on Divine Revelation and that unbelief in the truths of the Catholic Faith is a sin.
Dom Prosper Gueranger, O.S.B.’s inspiring account of the life and martyrdom of Saint Peter Martyr teaches us this truth in several ways:
The hero deputed this day by the Church to greet our Risen Lord was so valiant in the good fight that martyrdom is part of his name. He is known as Peter the Martyr; to that we cannot speak of him without raising the echo of victory. He was put to death by heretics, and is the grand tribute paid to our Redeemer by the thirteenth century. Never was there a triumph hailed with greater enthusiasm than this. The martyrdom of St. Thomas of Canterbury excited the admiration of the faithful of the preceding century, for nothing was so dear to our forefathers as the liberty of the Church; the martyrdom of St. Peter was celebrated with a like intensity of praise and joy. Let us hearken to the fervid eloquence of the great Pontiff, Innocent IV, who thus begins the Bull of the martyr’s canonization: ‘The truth of the Christian faith, manifested, as it has been, by great and frequent miracles, is not beautified by the new merit of a new Saint. Lo! a combatant of these our times comes, bringing us new and great triumphant signs. The voice of his blood shed (for Christ) is heard, and the fame of his martyrdom is trumpeted, through the world. The land is not silent that sweateth with blood; the country that produced so noble a warrior resounds with his praise; yea, the very sword that did the deed of parricide proclaims his glory. . . . Mother Church has great reason to rejoice, and abundant matter for gladness; she has cause to sing a new canticle to the Lord, and a hymn of fervent praise to her God: . . . the Christian people has cause to give forth devout songs to its Creator. A sweet fruit, gathered in the garden of faith, has been set upon the table of the eternal King: a grape-bunch taken from the vineyard of the Church has filled the royal cup with new wine. . . . The flourishing of the Order of Preachers has produced a red rose, whose sweetness is most grateful to the King; and from the Church here on earth there has been taken a stone, which, after being cut and polished, has deserved a place of honour in the temple of heaven.
Such was the language wherewith the supreme Pontiff spoke of the new martyr, and the people responded by celebrating his feast with extraordinary devotion. It was kept as were the ancient festivals, that is, all servile work was forbidden upon it. The churches served by the Fathers of the Dominican Order were crowded on his feast; and the faithful took little branches with them, that they might be blessed in memory of the triumph of Peter the Martyr. The custom is still observed; and the branches blessed by the Dominicans on this day are venerated as being a protection to the houses where they are kept.
How are we to account for all this fervent devotion of the people towards St. Peter? It was because he died in defense of the faith; and nothing was so dear to the Christians of those days as faith. Peter had received the charge to seize all the heretics who at that time were causing great disturbance and scandal in the country round about Milan. They were called Cathari, but in reality were Manicheans; their teachings were detestable, and their lives most immoral. Peter fulfilled his duty with a firmness and equity which soon secured him the hatred of the heretics; and when he fell a victim to his holy courage, a cry of admiration and gratitude was heard throughout Christendom. Nothing could be more devoid of truth than the accusations brought by the enemies of the Church and their indiscreet abettors against the measures formerly decreed by the public law of Catholic nations, in order to foil the efforts made by evil-minded men to injure the true faith. In those times, no tribunal was more popular as that whose office was to protect the faith, and to put down all them that attacked it. It was to the Order of St. Dominic that this office was mainly entrusted; and well may they be proud of the honour of having so long held one so beneficial to the salvation of mankind. How many of its members have met with a glorious death in the exercise of their stern duty! St. Peter is the first of the martyrs given by the Order for this holy cause: his name, however, head a long list of others who were his brethren in religion, his successors in the defence of the faith, and his followers to martyrdom. The coercive measures that were once, and successfully, long since ceased to be used: but for us Catholics, our judgement of them must surely be that of the Church. She bids us to-day honour as a martyr one of her Saints, who was put to death whilst resisting the wolves that threatened the sheep of Christ’s fold; should we not be guilty of disrespect to our Mother if we dared to condemn what she so highly approves? Far, then, be from us that cowardly truckling to the spirit of the age, which would make us ashamed of the courageous efforts made by our forefathers for the preservation of the faith! Far from us that childish readiness to believe the calumnies of Protestants against an institution which they naturally detest! Far from us that deplorable confusion of ideas which puts truth and error on an equality, and from the fact that error can have no rights, concludes that truth can claim none! (Dom Prosper Gueranger, O.S.B., The Liturgical Year: Paschal Time, Book II, pp. 374-376.)
Who puts truth and error on an equality?
I think you know the answer to that question. If not, just look for the man dressed in white in a dark room illumined by but a single light, something approaching the very atmosphere in which open devil-worshipers ply their trade, including the Illuninati.
Let us turn now to Dom Prosper Gueranger, O.S.B.’s prayer to Saint Peter Martyr:
The victory was thine, O Peter! and thy zeal for the defence of the holy faith was rewarded. Thou didst ardently desire to shed thy blood for the holiest of causes, and by such a sacrifice to confirm the faithful of Christ in their religion. Our Lord satisfied thy desire; he would even have thy martyrdom be in the festive season of the Resurrection of our divine Lamb, that his glory might add lustre to the beauty of thy holocaust. When the death-blow fell upon thy venerable head, and they generous blood was flowing from the wounds, thou didst write on the ground the first words of the creed, for whose holy truth thou was giving thy life.
Protector of the Christian people! what other motive hadst thou, in all thy labours, but charity? What else but a desire to defend the weak from danger induced thee not only to preach against error, but to drive its teachers from the flock? How many simple souls, who were receiving divine truth from the teaching of the Church, have been deceived by the lying sophistry of heretical doctrine, and have lost the faith? Surely the Church would do all she could to ward off such dangers from her children; she would do all she could to defend them from enemies, who were bent on destroying the glorious inheritance which had been handed down to them by millions of martyrs! She knew the strange tendency that often exists in the heart of fallen man to love error; whereas truth, though of itself unchanging, is not sure of its remaining firmly in the mind, unless it be defended by learning or by faith, as to learning, there are but few who possess it; and as to faith, error is ever conspiring against it, and, of course, with the appearance of truth. In the Christian ages it would have been deemed not only criminal, but absurd, to grant to error the liberty which is due only to truth; and they that were in authority considered it a duty to keep the weak from danger, by removing from them all occasions of a fall; just as the father of a family keeps his children from coming in contact with wicked companions who could easily impose on their inexperience, and lead them to evil under the name of good.
Obtain for us, O holy martyr, a keen appreciation of the precious gift of faith–that element which keeps us on the way to salvation. May we zealously do everything that lies in our power to preserve it, both in our ourselves and in them that are under our care. The love of this holy faith has grown cold in so many hearts; and frequent intercourse with free-thinkers has made them think and speak of matters of faith in a very loose way. Pray for them, O Peter, that they may recover that fearless love of the truths of religion which should be one of the chief traits of the Christian character. If they be living in a country where the modern system is introduced of training all religions alike–that is, of giving equal rights to error and to truth–let them be all the more courageous in professing the truth, and detesting the errors opposed to the truth. Pray for us, O holy martyr, that they may be enkindled within us an ardent love of that faith without which it is impossible to please God. Pray that we may become all earnestness in this duty, which is of vital importance to salvation; that thus our faith may daily gain strength within us, till at length we shall merit to see in heaven what we have believed unhesitatingly on earth. (Dom Prosper Gueranger, O.S.B., The Liturgical Year: Paschal Time, Book II, pp. 378-380.)
Yes, how many simple souls, many of whom today have never received the true teaching of the Church, have been deceived by the lying sophistry of the conciliar revolutionaries, and have lost the Faith as a result?
Is it not true that men today, being deprived of the superabundance of the fruits of Sanctifying and Actual Grace, are more prone to be deceived by error?
Is it not true that error, conspiring against truth, seeks to wrap itself up in the appearance of truth, which is what Jorge Mario Bergogliohas done for the past nearly thirty-four months now, especially during his daily “homilies” during his staging of the Protestant and Judeo-Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical abomination at the Casa Santa Marta, home to the false "pope's" Ding Dong School Of Apostasy.)
Do not we have an obligation to help our families and our friends from being deceived by error?
Consider the words of Pope Leo XIII, contained in Sapientiae Christianae, January 10, 1890:
The chief elements of this duty consist in professing openly and unflinchingly the Catholic doctrine, and in propagating it to the utmost of our power. For, as is often said, with the greatest truth, there is nothing so hurtful to Christian wisdom as that it should not be known, since it possesses, when loyally received, inherent power to drive away error. (Pope Leo XIII, Sapientiae Christianae, January 10, 1890.)
Do not those of us who live in the United States of America, a land that celebrates “free-thinking” and the very heresy of religious liberty that is a cornerstone of the conciliar revolution, find ourselves subjected to the constant assaults upon right reason and truth (and the very foundation of the conciliar revolution is the attack upon the very nature of dogmatic truth, which is a direct attack on the very nature of God Himself), from those who believe that error has “civil rights” and that it is not necessary to be Catholic in public discourse, that being “conservative” is “good enough”?
Consider what the late Father Edward Leen, S.J., had to say about the influence of naturalism upon the minds of Catholics sixty years-one ago before the doctrinal, liturgical and moral revolutions of conciliarism had begun in earnest at the “Second” Vatican Council and thereafter to this very day:
A shudder of apprehension is traversing the world which still retains its loyalty to Jesus expressing Himself through the authority of His Church. That apprehension has not its sole cause the sight of the horrors that the world has witnessed in recent years in both hemispheres. Many Christians are beginning to feel that perhaps all may not be right with themselves. There is solid reason for this fear. The contemplation of the complete and reasoned abandonment of all hitherto accepted human values that has taken place in Russia and is taking place elsewhere, causes a good deal of anxious soul-searching. It is beginning to be dimly perceived that in social life, as it is lived, even in countries that have not as yet definitely broken with Christianity, there lie all the possibilities of what has become actual in Bolshevism. A considerable body of Christians, untrained in the Christian philosophy of life, are allowing themselves to absorb principles which undermine the constructions of Christian thought. They do not realise how much more dangerous it is for Christianity to exist in an atmosphere of Naturalism than to be exposed to positive persecution. In the old days of the Roman Empire those who enrolled themselves under the standard of Christ saw, with logical clearness, that they had perforce to cut themselves adrift from the social life of the world in which they lived–from its tastes, practices and amusements. The line of demarcation between pagan and Christian life was sharp, clearly defined and obvious. Modern Christians have not been so favorably situated. As has been stated already, the framework of the Christian social organisation has as yet survived. This organisation is, to outward appearances, so solid and imposing that it is easy to be blind to the truth that the soul had gradually gone out of it. Under the shelter and utilising the resources of the organisation of life created by Christianity, customs, ways of conduct, habits of thought, have crept in, more completely perhaps, at variance with the spirit of Christianity than even the ways and manners of pagan Rome.
This infiltration of post-Christian paganism has been steady but slow, and at each stage is imperceptible. The Christian of to-day thinks that he is living in what is to all intents and purposes a Christian civilisation. Without misgivings he follows the current of social life around him. His amusements, his pleasures, his pursuits, his games, his books, his papers, his social and political ideas are of much the same kind as are those of the people with whom he mingles, and who may not have a vestige of a Christian principle left in their minds. He differs merely from them in that he holds to certain definite religious truths and clings to certain definite religious practices. But apart from this there is not any striking contrast in the outward conduct of life between Christian and non-Christian in what is called the civilised world. Catholics are amused by, and interested in, the very same things that appeal to those who have abandoned all belief in God. The result is a growing divorce between religion and life in the soul of the individual Christian. Little by little his faith ceases to be a determining effect on the bulk of his ideas, judgments and decisions that have relation to what he regards as his purely “secular” life. His physiognomy as a social being no longer bears trace of any formative effect of the beliefs he professes. And his faith rapidly becomes a thing of tradition and routine and not something which is looked to as a source of a life that is real.
The Bolshevist Revolution has had one good effect. It has awakened the averagely good Christian to the danger runs in allowing himself to drift with the current of social life about him. It has revealed to him the precipice towards which he has was heading by shaping his worldly career after principles the context of which the revolution has mercilessly exposed and revealed to be at variance with real Christianity. The sincerely religious–and there are many such still–are beginning to realise that if they are to live as Christians they must react violently against the milieu in which they live. It is beginning to be felt that one cannot be a true Christian and live as the bulk of men in civilised society are living. It is clearly seen that “life” is not to be found along those ways by which the vast majority of men are hurrying to disillusionment and despair. Up to the time of the recent cataclysm the average unreflecting Christian dwelt in the comfortable illusion that he could fall in with the ways of the world about him here, and, by holding on to the practices of religion, arrange matters satisfactorily for the hereafter. That illusion is dispelled. It is coming home to the discerning Christian that their religion is not a mere provision for the future. There is a growing conviction that it is only through Christianity lived integrally that the evils of the present time can be remedied and disaster in the time to come averted. (Father Edward Leen, The Holy Ghost, published in 1953 by Sheed and Ward, pp. 6-9.)
Once again, you see, no, not just crazy old Droleskey who writes these things. This much hated and reviled writer is only attempting to give voice, however poorly, to the simple Catholic truth summarized so clearly by Pope Saint Pius X in Notre Charge Apostolique on August 15, 1910:
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. (Pope Saint Pius X, Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910.)
Father Edward Leen was simply giving expression in 1953 to simple, timeless and immutable truths that true pope after true pope had reiterated time and time again in the last three centuries now. No Catholicism, no salvation. No Catholicism, no social order. No Catholicism, no peace.
It’s that simple. It is incomprehensible that Catholics who claim to be opposed to conciliarism, which is founded in no small measure in a blithe acceptance of the tenets of Modernity, remain as undiscerning now as Catholics were in the 1950s at the time of Father Leen, believing that they can compromise with error in order to retard or to back the tide of errors that have flooded into the world as a result of the Protestant Revolution and the rise and institutionalization of Judeo-Masonry.
Saint Peter Martyr was willing to lay down his life in defense of the Holy Faith.
So what if our family members and friends revile us and castigate us?
So what if complete strangers start to denounce us for our rejection of conciliarism?
So what if we are humiliated and brought low, brought to nothingness, in the sight of men?
Is not Heaven worth dying to self and to disordered self-love?
Saint Peter Martyr thought so.
What is wrong with us?
The path to Heaven can be trod only by those who are willing to bear the Cross and to lift it high in their daily lives seeking only to live in such a way that we will be ready at all times to die in a state of Sanctifying Grace as a member of the Catholic Church, outside of which there is no salvation and without which there can be no true social order, as we pray as many Rosaries each day as our state in life permits.
It’s the Faith that matters, the entire Faith without any compromises, now and for all eternity.
Aren’t we willing to suffer some more for the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary?
Saint Peter Martyr was willing to do eight hundred years ago.
What’s wrong with us?
Are we willing to write Credo in Unum Deum in our own blood?
We better be, and to get ready we have to rely more and more upon Our Lady's help as we make sure always to wear her Brown Scapular.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon!
Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.
