Jorge Orders Protection for His Pro-Abortion, Pro-Perversity Statist Comrades

All that wasted time.

All that wasted effort.

All that agitation.

All that spinning of the wheels.

All that rending of garments and gnashing of teeth.

All the petitions.

All those speeches.

All those marches.

All those rallies.

All the letters to Rome.

All the calls to chancery offices.

All to utterly no avail.

What am I talking about?

Well, as I one who wasted his time, spent effort, got himself and others agitated, spun his wheels, rent his garments and gnashed his teeth, signed petitions, gave and listened to speeches, attended marches and rallies, wrote letters to Rome and called chancery offices, I am talking about the Sisyphus-like crusades that consumed the lives of so many Catholics all across and up and down the vast expanse of the ecclesiastical divide to get pro-abortion and pro-sodomite Catholic politicians “excommunicated” by local and Roman officials.

Although I came to realize by the late-1990s that “Rome” was not going to act, I did spend a whole lot of time writing articles and pontificating in college classrooms and in various lectures and speeches about the scandal caused by leaving Catholic enablers of baby-killing and sodomy in “good standing” in what I had believed to be the Catholic Church. Gee, I even wrote an entire book, Christ in the Voting Booth, twenty-three years ago in the very mistaken belief that we could use the political forum to promote the Social Reign of Christ the King while recognizing at the same time that there was little likelihood that the turn toward statism in the United States of America was going to be reversed by political action, and this is to say nothing about actually running for public office three times on the New York State Right to Life Party line.

So much wasted time.

So much wasted effort.

So much wasted talk.

So much money needlessly raised and wasted.

Alas, it was always completely unrealistic for anyone, including this writer, to believe that the supposedly “pro-life” “pope,” Karol Josef Wojtyla/John Paul II, to “excommunicate” pro-abortion, pro-sodomite Catholics in public life as he, along with his “bishops” that many of us were criticizing for their alliance with pro-abortion statists in the organized crime family of the false opposite of the naturalist “left, had excommunicated himself by virtue of believing in, adhering to, openly professing and publicly promoting propositions that had been anathematized by our true popes and/or true general councils. As a conciliar presbyter who later made his peace with the established disorder of things within the counterfeit church of conciliarism rightly upbraided me in the 1990s, “There are other issues than abortion within the Church.” Yes, of course, including what I came to recognize fifteen years ago this month: that the conciliar “popes” were veritable figures of Antichrist and that a counterfeit ape of Catholicism had emerged from the “Second” Vatican Council to make war against all that was authentically Catholic.

Karol Josef Wojtyla/John Paul II was presented with an ultimatum by about forty Catholic members of the United States House of Representatives, including then Representative Robert K. Dornan (Republican, California), who threatened to go to Rome en masse to insist on Drinan's removal from electoral politics if Rome did not act to do beforehand. (Dornan has spoken about this publicly, including at a panel I hosted for the Society of Catholic Social Scientists at the American Political Science Association Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C., in 1997.) Drinan went on to support the winner of the Democratic Party primary, held in September of 1980, to replace him in the House of Representatives, a chap by the name of Barney Frank. Drinan openly supported then Representative Geraldine Ferraro's (Democrat, Queens, New York) views on abortion in the 1984 general elections, pitting him on a Crossfire program on the Cable News Network (CNN), hosted by that program's original co-hosts, Tom Braden and Patrick J. Buchanan, in August of that year against Father Vincent P. Miceli (who had been a Jesuit until 1983), who eviscerated him in their debate.

Drinan was the president of the pro-abortion Americans for Democratic Action for a few years in the 1980s, giving a blistering speech in behalf of "reproductive rights" in the summer of 1984 in that capacity. Despite this, however, he has been honored by several "Catholic" universities, including the Saint John's University School of Law, Jamaica, New York, where he gave the commencement address in 1995, and at Saint Joseph's College, Brentwood, New York, in 1998, two years after he supported then President William Jefferson Clinton's veto of the conditional, partial ban on partial-birth abortions. That Drinan remained in good standing in the conciliar church, which professes its opposition to baby-killing, and had been accorded such accolades by "Catholic" institutions was just another symptom of the bankruptcy of Faith, especially as it pertains in this instance to the conciliar novelty of Collegiality, that permeates the conciliar structures.

Pro-abortion Catholics in public life during the reign of both Wotyla/John Paul II and Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict XVI lived and died as "Catholics" in perfectly good standing in what they thought was the Catholic Church but is actually her counterfeit ape. And they were lauded by alleged prelates and clerics long after their deaths.

You want a review of some of the more notorious examples of Catholics in public life who received the Protestant and Judeo-Masonic Novus Ordo "Mass of Christian Burial" despite their support for baby-killing and/or perversity during the years of the "pro-life" Wojtyla and the "traditional" Ratzinger.

Why, of course, I am more than happy to oblige the twelve of you who will be reading this article:

The late New York State Senator Edward Speno was permitted to have a "Mass of Christian Burial" at Saint Raphael Church in East Meadow, Long Island, New York, in 1972, two years after he had voted in favor of the bill to permit surgical baby-killing-on-demand in the first trimester of pregnancy following his death from a sudden heart attack. (See the appendix below for material I unearthed about Speno in an article published some years ago now.)

The late Thomas P. O'Neill was eulogized as a splendid Catholic by the man who later served as the conciliar archpriest of the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore, the protector of perverted priests, including one who started an organization to promote something so unspeakable that it will not be repeated here, by the name of Bernard "Cardinal" Law, in 1994 despite O'Neill's constant support for abortion "rights."

The aforementioined Father Robert Drinan, S.J., known as "Father Death," who served in the United States House of Representatives from January 3, 1971, January 3, 1981, remained a priest in "good standing" in the conciliar church until his death on January 28, 2007 despite his unrepentant support of surgical baby-killing under cover of law, including the procedure known as "partial-birth abortion." Drinan was also instrumental in helping the Kennedy clan to plot a strategy to separate their "private" beliefs about abortion from their public policies ( See - Opinion: How Support for Abortion Became Kennedy Dogma).  Drinan's "Mass of Christian Burial" was held at the Jesuit church in downtown Washington, D.C., Saint Aloysius Church, on February 1, 2007. Edward Moore Kennedy was one of those who "eulogized" "Father Death. Nancy Pelosi was another:

Sen. Edward Kennedy noted, "Here on earth, God's work must be our own" and said that Drinan did that work "armed with moral clarity and courage." Speaker Pelosi said of Drinan, "It was because of his faith that he was one of our greatest champions for human rights," and she quoted him as telling Georgetown students "to go forth into society not as mere legal tradesmen, but as moral architects." (Robert Drinan, Infanticide, and the "Unthinkable" | First Things)

Edward Moore Kennedy believed that supporting abortion was "God's work." Ah, yes, just some more of Kennedy's "accomplishments" praised by Sean "Cardinal" O'Malley (see Sean O'Malley: Coward and Hypocrite).

The late Associate Justice William Brennan of the Supreme Court of the United States of America was given a "Mass of Christian Burial" at Saint Matthew's Church on July 29, 1997. This was permitted by the then conciliar "archbishop" of Washington, D.C., James "Cardinal" Hickey, despite the fact that Brennan cast one of the seven affirmative votes in the cases of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, January 22, 1973, and despite the fact that Brennan served also as one of the seven affirmative votes in the case of Griswold v. Connecticut, June 7, 1965, that invalidated a long-unenforced Connecticut state statute that banned the sale of contraceptives to married couples, a case that provided a good deal of the "legal reasoning," such as it was, for the Roe and Doe cases, especially by inventing the so-called "right to privacy" as found in what were called the "penumbras" (little shadows or emanations) from could be found various provisions of the Bill of Rights and made applicable to the states through the Fourteenth Amendment's liberty and due process of law clauses.

William Brennan's "Mass of Christian Burial" was a travesty from beginning to end. The pro-abortion, pro-Communist, pro-Fidel Castro, pro-South Central Los Angeles rioters United States Representative Maxine Waters was so impressed by that travesty, which featured an auxiliary "bishop," William Lori, now the conciliar "bishop" of Bridgeport, Connecticut, in attendance as the official representative of the archdiocese, that she asked that its program be inserted into the Congressional Record (see Appendix A below).

One of those who gave a "eulogy," a tribute that used to be forbidden, at least formally, even by the rules of the counterfeit church of conciliarism, at this travesty was then President William Jefferson Blythe Clinton. United States Senator Edward Moore Kennedy did so as well. Another featured eulogist was none other than Father "Death" himself, the pro-abortion Reverend Robert Drinan, S.J., who was himself buried as a Catholic priest in "good standing" in the conciliar structures following his death on January 20, 2007.

The late United States Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan (D-New York) was permitted to have a "Mass of Christian Burial" at Saint Patrick's Cathedral in the Borough of Manhattan of the City of New York, New York, in 2003 despite his consistent support for abortion "rights," mitigated, some believe, because he did vote to partially ban partial-birth abortions. To oppose a particular form of child-killing while maintaining the "right" of women to murder their children by other means does not constitute a "mitigation" of one's support for a sin that cries out to Heaven for vengeance.

Noting the fact that Mario Matthew Cuomo died on January 1, 2015, during the conciliar presidency, shall we say, of Jorge Mario Bergoglio, a final example from the Wojtyla-Ratzinger years of a pro-abort being buried in good standing out of Catholic church in conciliar captivity was the notorous pro-abort named Geraldine Ann Ferraro-Zaccaro, who died on March 26, 2011 (see To Fall Into The Hands of the Living God and  Just Another Ordinary Outrage Permitted by a Conciliar "Ordinary").

Get the idea?

Sure, I knew the twelve of you would.

Moreover, how many people remember that it was back that was in early January of 1995, eighteen years ago now, that the conciliar "bishop" of Evreux, Normandy, France, Jacques Gaillot, was removed by Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II after years upon years of protests by Catholics about his words and actions, including his open and unapologetic support for the human pesticide, the French abortion pill, RU-486? (See Farley Clinton's February 2, 1995, article in The WandererGaillot Stripped of His Bishopric. I had my own commentary on the matter at the time that ran in the same newspaper.) That it took something approaching a revolution from Catholics attached to the conciliar structures in France to effect Gaillot's removal after years of complaints--and even admonitions from Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II himself--speaks volumes about the paralysis caused by the conciliar novelty of episcopal collegiality, one of the triumphs of the Modernist spirit in favor of democracy that had been described so clearly by Pope Saint Pius X in Pascendi Dominci Gregis, September 8, 1907.

Those still fighting in the trenches on Mindanao, however, continue to rend their garments, gnash their teeth, spin their wheels, push boulders up hills only to have them come crashing down again and again, write endless numbers of articles, provide hours upon hours of “podcasts” about the “crisis in the Church,” rail against a “liberal” “pope,” and who cling to so-called “conservative non-prelates who support the new ecclesiology, false ecumenism and who adhere to the heretical teaching about marriage and the family advanced by the “Second” Vatican Council and enshrined in such “untouchable” documents as Humanae Vitae, July 25, 1968, and Familiaris Consortio, November 24, 1981, now have a new “bone” upon which to chew and about which to write columns and record podcasts. The new “bone” comes in the form of a letter to the conciliar “archbishop” of Los Angeles, California, Jose Gomez, from the prefect of the conciliar sect’s misnamed Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Luis Ladaria, warning Gomez against action against pro-abortion Catholics in public life, especially President in Name Only Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., the man who is making James Earl Carter, Jr.’s, presidency seem competent by way of comparison, as to do so without engaging in “dialogue” with those politicians would be “divisive” and would make it appear as though the destruction of innocent human lives in their mothers’ wombs by chemical and surgical means is more important than other moral issues:

The head of the Vatican’s doctrine office is warning U.S. bishops to deliberate carefully and minimize divisions before proceeding with a possible plan to rebuke Catholic politicians such as President Joe Biden for receiving Communion even though they support abortion rights.

The strong words of caution came in a letter from Cardinal Luis Ladaria, prefect of the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, addressed to Archbishop José Gomez of Los Angeles, president of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. The USCCB will convene for a national meeting June 16, with plans to vote on drafting a document on the Communion issue

There is division among the bishops, with some pressing for Biden and other Catholic public figures to be excluded from Communion over their abortion stance, and other bishops warning that such a move would be politically polarizing.

Ladaria, in his letter, said any new policy “requires that dialogue occurs in two stages: first among the bishops themselves, and then between bishops and Catholic pro-choice politicians within their jurisdictions.”

Even then, Ladaria advised, the bishops should seek unanimous support within their ranks for any national policy, lest it become “a source of discord rather than unity within the episcopate and the larger church in the United States.” (Vatican Warns US “Bishops” Over “Get Tough” Communion Proposals.)

Interjection Number One:

Is the fact that willful murder one of the four sins that cry out to Heaven for vengeance subject to debate and “dialogue”?

The fact that unanimity has never existed among the American “bishops” within the counterfeit church about a Catholic candidate or officeholder’s support for the deliberate destruction is a singular disqualification from holding any office of public trust, whether elected or appointed, is, in and of itself, a sign that the conciliar sect’s moral teaching is in direct contradiction to the clear teaching of the Catholic Church as summarized by Pope Pius XI in Casti Connubii, December 31, 1930:

Those who hold the reins of government should not forget that it is the duty of public authority by appropriate laws and sanctions to defend the lives of the innocent, and this all the more so since those whose lives are endangered and assailed cannot defend themselves. Among whom we must mention in the first place infants hidden in the mother's womb. And if the public magistrates not only do not defend them, but by their laws and ordinances betray them to death at the hands of doctors or of others, let them remember that God is the Judge and Avenger of innocent blood which cried from earth to Heaven. (Pope Pius XI, Casti Connubii, December 30, 1930.)

Even most “conservative” “bishops” within the counterfeit church of conciliarism are incapable of speaking in such a manner as they are incapable of thinking in such a decisively clear Catholic manner. The conciliar “bishops” cannot “teach” cum una voce because that which is false, conciliarism, is itself a source of division and discord and thus is incapable of producing a true unity indicative of true Catholicism.

Look, the time for “dialogue” past a long, long time ago. The failure of the American bishops, both validly consecrated (and there were many such bishops in 1973) and invalidly consecrated, to use the medicinal remedy of excommunication to discipline pro-abortion Catholics in public life in the 1970s in the immediate aftermath of Roe v. Wade only emboldened those Catholics, most of whom belonged to the organized crime family of the false opposite of the naturalist left, in their support for baby-killing and then, as the years progressed, to support “doctor-assisted suicide,” euthanasia, and the whole range of ever-evolving perversities associated with the rotten agenda of the homosexualist collective. This, in turn, made it possible for there to arise pro-abortion Catholics in the organized crime family of the false opposite of the naturalist right, the earliest examples of which were Rudolph William Giuliani, Richard Riordan, Thomas Ridge, Rick Lazio, Susan Molinari, Susan Collins and George Elmer Pataki.

While, according to what Monsignor Michael Wrenn in 1997 when he was the pastor of Saint John the Evangelist Church in the Borough of Manhattan, City of New York, New York, John “Cardinal” O’Connor had a “private arrangement” with former New York Governor Mario Matthew Cuomo not to approach for what purported to be Holy Communion in the Protestant and Judeo-Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical travesty, this was never made public, nor was a similar “arrangement” that Edward “Cardinal” Egan had made with Rudolph William Giuliani (see Public Scandal Is Never A Private Matter).

Furthermore, how did over twenty-four years of "engagement and dialogue" change the late William Brennan, a Catholic who cast a vote in favor the decisions of the Supreme Court of the United States of America in the cases of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, January, 22, 1973, while he served as an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States of America, decisions he reaffirmed in subsequent cases?

How did twenty years of "engagement and dialogue" change the late Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, Thomas P. O'Neill (D-Massachusetts)?

How did over thirty years of “engagement and dialogue” change the late New York State Senators Ralph Marino and John Marchi?

How is any ongoing “engagement and dialogue” changing prominent Catholic pro-aborts Kathy Hochul, Lieutenant Governor of the State of New York, or New York State Senator Sean Ryan?

How did over thirty-six years of "engagement and dialogue" change the late United States Senator Edward Moore Kennedy (D-Massachusetts)?

How did over thirty-three years of "engagement and dialogue" change the late United States Representative Geraldine Anne Ferraro-Zaccarro (D-New York).

How did over forty-two years of "engagement and dialogue change the late Governor of New York, Mario Matthew Cuomo?

How did over forty years of “engagement and dialogue” change the thirty-third degree Freemason Charles Rangel, the disgraced former United States Representative from Harlem in the Borough of Manhattan and the longtime Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee?

How has over thirty-three years of "engagement and dialogue" changed the reprobate named Rudolph William Giuliani?

How has nearly thirty years of "engagement and dialogue" changed current Governor of New York, Andrew Mark Cuomo?

How has forty years of “engagement and dialogue” changed United States Representative Nancy Patricia D’Alesandro Pelosi?

How has twenty years of "engagement and dialogue" changed United States Senator Kirsten Gillebrand (D-New York)?

How has forty-eight years of "engagement and dialogue" changed the President In Name Only Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr. (D-Delaware; see, for example, Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., Demagogue Update).

How has forty years of “engagement and dialogue” changed United States Senators Susan Collins, Patricia Murphy, Richard Durbin, Edward Markey, Maria Cantwell, Timothy Michael Kaine, Patrick Leahy, Lisa Murkowski, Jack Reed, Robert Menendez, Alex Padilla, or Catherine Cortez Masto?

How has twenty years of “engagement and dialogue” changed California Governor Gavin Michael Newsom or his comrade Xavier Becerra, the militantly pro-death United States Secretary of Health and Human Services?

How did decades upon decades of “engagement and dialogue” change former officeholders such as Arnold Schwarzenegger, Gray Davis, Edmund Gerald Brown, Jr., Barbara Mikulski, Richard Riordan, Rick Lazio, Susan Molinari, George Elmer Pataki, David Paterson, Christopher Dodd, Peter Rodino, Carol Mosely Braun or Robert Torricelli?

How has a decade of “engagement and dialogue” changed New Jersey Governor Philip Murphy?

How is any ongoing “engagement and dialogue” changing former Rhode Island Governor and current United States Secretary of Commerce Gina Marie Raimondo or current Rhode Island Secretary of State Nellie Gorbea?

The conciliar sect’s nearly half of a century of "engagement and dialogue" has been and continues to be an abysmal failure as it does the work of the devil himself, not the work of Christ the King, Whose Social Kingship over men and their nations its leaders reject both in theory and in practice. Indeed, the conciliar sect’s half century of “engagement and dialogue” remains what it has been: a gigantic smokescreen to make possible the indemnification of “social justice” Catholics in public life who do not understand that there can be no true justice in the world as men persist in their sins unrepentantly and as they themselves suborn each of the four sins that cry out to Heaven for vengeance.

All right, let me return now to the article about Luis Ladaria’s letter to “Archbishop” Jose Gomez:

Ladaria made several other points that could complicate the plans of bishops pressing for tough action:

— He said any new statement should not be limited to Catholic political leaders but broadened to encompass all churchgoing Catholics in regard to their worthiness to receive Communion.

— He questioned the USCCB policy identifying abortion as “the preeminent” moral issue, saying it would be misleading if any new document “were to give the impression that abortion and euthanasia alone constitute the only grave matters of Catholic moral and social teaching that demand the fullest accountability on the part of Catholics.” (Vatican Warns US “Bishops” Over “Get Tough” Communion Proposals.)

Interjection Number Two:

Luis Ladaria is not acting on his own. He is doing exactly what Jorge Mario Bergoglio wants him to do. In this regard, therefore, perhaps it should be good to call to mind that the false “pontiff” who has engaged in a lifetime war against the Catholic Faith made a point of refusing to talk about abortion when he addressed a joint session of the United States Congress on Thursday, September 24, 2015, as he, after pausing for effect, emphasized his opposition to the death penalty:

This conviction has led me, from the beginning of my ministry, to advocate at different levels for the global abolition of the death penalty.  I am convinced that this way is the best, since every life is sacred, every human person is endowed with an inalienable dignity, and society can only benefit from the rehabilitation of those convicted of crimes.  Recently my brother bishops here in the United States renewed their call for the abolition of the death penalty.  Not only do I support them, but I also offer encouragement to all those who are convinced that a just and necessary punishment must never exclude the dimension of hope and the goal of rehabilitation. (Bergoglio's Address to U.S. Congress.)

The pestilential apostate from Argentina made it perfectly clear that he was on the side of then President Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro and that he was more than ready for a “President” Hillary Diane Rodham Clinton. It was no accident that Chelsea Clinton Mezvinsky was one of the invitees to speak at the recent Vatican conference on “mind and body” that was the subject of Jorge’s False Church Enables Enemies of Christ the King and Souls Without a Thought of Offending God last month.

Luis Ladaria was telling Opus Dei’s own Jose Gomez that his fellow lay Jesuit revolutionary,  Jorge Mario Bergoglio, would have no problem mandating adherence to his program of complete support for the George Soros agenda “open borders,” “racial justice,” redistribution of income, sustainable development goals, including the forcible reduction of the use of fossil fuels, the homosexualist agenda, state-enforced censorship of “hurtful” and/or “hateful” speech, and an unalterable opposition to capital punishment as absolute conditions for the reception of what is believed to be Holy Communion within the structures of his false religious sect if Gomez and other American “bishops” of the Girondist/Menshevik variety insist on banning pro-abort and pro-sodomite Catholics from the “Communion” line.

Obviously, Bergoglio’s handpicked stooge Ladaria is endorsing what can be called the “seamless garment on steroids,” thus making the morally, doctrinally, and liturgically corrupt Joseph “Cardinal” Bernardin to be a “prophet” of an ever-evolving “consistent ethic of life” whose one and only goal is to indemnify adherents of the false opposite of the naturalist “left” in each and every single one of their policy prescriptions, including those that endorse abject evils and enshrine them under cover of the civil law, as part of the conciliar church’s ever-evolving depositem fidei.

There is a special irony in all this, however: neither “progressivists” nor the “conservatives” within the structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism believe that the principal purpose of civil government is to foster those conditions that make it more possible for men to sanctify and thus to save their souls as members of the Catholic Church, outside of which there is no salvation and without which there can be no true social order. Neither the “progressivists” nor the “conservatives” within the structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism believe that the good of nations depends upon right order within the souls of men, an order that is impossible without having belief in, access to, and cooperation with Sanctifying Grace,

The “progressivists” and the “conservatives” within the structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism are thus completely united in their rejection of the following words of Pope Saint Pius X summarizing the purpose of civil government and in rejecting Pope Leo XIII’s admonition concerning the dangers posed by the religiously indifferentist civil state:

That the State must be separated from the Church is a thesis absolutely false, a most pernicious error. Based, as it is, on the principle that the State must not recognize any religious cult, it is in the first place guilty of a great injustice to God; for the Creator of man is also the Founder of human societies, and preserves their existence as He preserves our own. We owe Him, therefore, not only a private cult, but a public and social worship to honor Him. Besides, this thesis is an obvious negation of the supernatural order. It limits the action of the State to the pursuit of public prosperity during this life only, which is but the proximate object of political societies; and it occupies itself in no fashion (on the plea that this is foreign to it) with their ultimate object which is man's eternal happiness after this short life shall have run its course. But as the present order of things is temporary and subordinated to the conquest of man's supreme and absolute welfare, it follows that the civil power must not only place no obstacle in the way of this conquest, but must aid us in effecting it. The same thesis also upsets the order providentially established by God in the world, which demands a harmonious agreement between the two societies. Both of them, the civil and the religious society, although each exercises in its own sphere its authority over them. It follows necessarily that there are many things belonging to them in common in which both societies must have relations with one another. Remove the agreement between Church and State, and the result will be that from these common matters will spring the seeds of disputes which will become acute on both sides; it will become more difficult to see where the truth lies, and great confusion is certain to arise. Finally, this thesis inflicts great injury on society itself, for it cannot either prosper or last long when due place is not left for religion, which is the supreme rule and the sovereign mistress in all questions touching the rights and the duties of men. Hence the Roman Pontiffs have never ceased, as circumstances required, to refute and condemn the doctrine of the separation of Church and State. (Pope Saint Pius X, Vehementer Nos, February 11, 1906.)

The fact that the conditions favorable to a Catholic state do not exist at this time does nothing to detract from the immutability of the Catholic teaching explicated so clearly by Pope Saint Pius X.

Indeed, the fact that the conditions favorable to a Catholic state do not exist at this time is the result of the proliferation of a deliberate, planned attack by the adversary himself upon it by using the combined, interrelated errors of Protestantism and Judeo-Masonry to uproot the Holy Cross as the foundation of personal and social order in Europe and to make sure it was not the foundation of such order here in the United States of America.

Father Denis Fahey made this exact point in The Mystical Body of Christ in the Modern World:

By the grace of the Headship of the Mystical Body, our Lord Jesus Christ is both Priest and King of redeemed mankind and, as such, exercises a twofold influence upon us. Firstly, as a Priest, He communicates to us the supernatural life of grace by which we, while ever remaining distinct from God, can enter into the vision and love of the Blessed Trinity. We can thus become one with God, not, of course, in the order of substance or being, but in the order of operation, of the immaterial union of vision and love. The Divine Nature is the principle of the Divine Vision and Love, and by grace we are ‘made partakers of the Divine Nature.’ This pure Catholic doctrine is infinitely removed from Masonic pantheism. Secondly, as King, our Lord exercises an exterior influence on us by His government of us. As King, He guides and directs us socially and individually, in order to dispose all things for the reception of the Supernatural Life which He, as Priest, confers.

Society had been organized in the thirteenth century and even down to the sixteenth, under the banner of Christ the King. Thus, in spite of deficiencies and imperfections, man’s divinization, through the Life that comes from the sacred Humanity of Jesus, was socially favoured. Modern society, under the influence of Satan, was to be organized on the opposite principle, namely, that human nature is of itself divine, that man is God, and, therefore, subject to nobody. Accordingly, when the favourable moment had arrived, the Masonic divnization of human nature found its expression in the Declaration of the Rights of Man in 1789The French Revolution ushered in the struggle for the complete organization of the world around the new divinity–Humanity. In God’s plan, the whole organization of a country is meant to aid the development of a country is meant to aid the development of the true personality of the citizens through the Mystical Body of Christ. Accordingly, the achievement of true liberty for a country means the removal of obstacles to the organized social acceptance of the Divine Plan. Every revolution since 1789 tends, on the contrary, to the rejection of that plan, and therefore to the enthronement of man in the place of God. The freedom at which the spirit of the revolution aims is that absolute independence which refuses submission to any and every order. It is the spirit breathed by the temptation of the serpent: ‘For God doth know that in what day soever you shall eat thereof, your eyes shall be opened; and you shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.’ Man decided then that he would himself lay down the order of good and evil in the place of God; then and now it is the same attitude. (Father Denis Fahey, The Mystical Body of Christ in the Modern World, p. 27.)   

Although Holy Mother Church accommodates herself to the concrete realities in which her children live, she makes no concession to errors that have resulted in the triumph of religious indifferentism and overt hostility to the true Faith. No one but no one in the “hierarchy” of the counterfeit church of conciliarism believes that Catholicism is the absolute prerequisite for a just social order and that the civil state can never endorse than which is opposed to the peace and happiness of eternity, something that Holy Mother Church taught consistently from time immemorial until she was eclipsed by the conciliar robber barons during the anti-pontificate of Angelo Roncalli/John XXIII and the “Second” Vatican Council that he convened to make an “opening” to the “modern world.”

Here is a reminder of the teaching that is rejected by the progressivists and the conservatives within the structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism, a rejection that has caused these two false opposites to do battle with each other about matters contained within the binding precepts of the Divine Positive Law and the Natural Law and thus can never be any subject of debate, discussion or “dialogue”:

So, too, the liberty of thinking, and of publishing, whatsoever each one likes, without any hindrance, is not in itself an advantage over which society can wisely rejoice. On the contrary, it is the fountain-head and origin of many evils. Liberty is a power perfecting man, and hence should have truth and goodness for its object. But the character of goodness and truth cannot be changed at option. These remain ever one and the same, and are no less unchangeable than nature itself. If the mind assents to false opinions, and the will chooses and follows after what is wrong, neither can attain its native fullness, but both must fall from their native dignity into an abyss of corruption. Whatever, therefore, is opposed to virtue and truth may not rightly be brought temptingly before the eye of man, much less sanctioned by the favor and protection of the law. A well-spent life is the only passport to heaven, whither all are bound, and on this account the State is acting against the laws and dictates of nature whenever it permits the license of opinion and of action to lead minds astray from truth and souls away from the practice of virtue. To exclude the Church, founded by God Himself, from the business of life, from the making of laws, from the education of youth, from domestic society is a grave and fatal error. A State from which religion is banished can never be well regulated; and already perhaps more than is desirable is known of the nature and tendency of the so-called civil philosophy of life and morals. The Church of Christ is the true and sole teacher of virtue and guardian of morals. She it is who preserves in their purity the principles from which duties flow, and, by setting forth most urgent reasons for virtuous life, bids us not only to turn away from wicked deeds, but even to curb all movements of the mind that are opposed to reason, even though they be not carried out in action. (Pope Leo XIII, Immortale Dei, November 1, 1885.)

For the moment, therefore, is enough to note that Americanism has bifurcated most Catholics into the warring camps of the organized crime families of naturalism. Constant agitation thus replaces the peace in souls that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ means for us to have by thinking, speaking and acting at all times with the integrity of Catholics who live up to this clarion call of Pope Leo XIII in Sapientiae Christianae:

But in this same matter, touching Christian faith, there are other duties whose exact and religious observance, necessary at all times in the interests of eternal salvation, become more especially so in these our days. Amid such reckless and widespread folly of opinion, it is, as We have said, the office of the Church to undertake the defense of truth and uproot errors from the mind, and this charge has to be at all times sacredly observed by her, seeing that the honor of God and the salvation of men are confided to her keeping. But, when necessity compels, not those only who are invested with power of rule are bound to safeguard the integrity of faith, but, as St. Thomas maintains: "Each one is under obligation to show forth his faith, either to instruct and encourage others of the faithful, or to repel the attacks of unbelievers.'' To recoil before an enemy, or to keep silence when from all sides such clamors are raised against truth, is the part of a man either devoid of character or who entertains doubt as to the truth of what he professes to believe. In both cases such mode of behaving is base and is insulting to God, and both are incompatible with the salvation of mankind. This kind of conduct is profitable only to the enemies of the faith, for nothing emboldens the wicked so greatly as the lack of courage on the part of the good. Moreover, want of vigor on the part of Christians is so much the more blameworthy, as not seldom little would be needed on their part to bring to naught false charges and refute erroneous opinions, and by always exerting themselves more strenuously they might reckon upon being successful. After all, no one can be prevented from putting forth that strength of soul which is the characteristic of true Christians, and very frequently by such display of courage our enemies lose heart and their designs are thwarted. Christians are, moreover, born for combat, whereof the greater the vehemence, the more assured, God aiding, the triumph: "Have confidence; I have overcome the world." Nor is there any ground for alleging that Jesus Christ, the Guardian and Champion of the Church, needs not in any manner the help of men. Power certainly is not wanting to Him, but in His loving kindness He would assign to us a share in obtaining and applying the fruits of salvation procured through His grace.

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. So soon as Catholic truth is apprehended by a simple and unprejudiced soul, reason yields assent. (Pope Leo XIII, Sapientiae Christianae, January 10, 1890.)

We must be consigned to the losing proposition of always arguing about the inarguable if we do not speak forthrightly as Catholics in the midst of the world, which includes not compromising on any matter of Catholic teaching and moral truth for the sake of suborning evil or, in the case of the current president, accept what he believes are his own “infallible” pronouncements about “exceptions” to the absolute inviolability of all innocent human life that have long been the bete noir of the American “bishops” themselves.

Jorge Mario Bergoglio wants to silence the “conservatives” and stop the “pro-lifers,” whom he equates as followers of former President Donald John Trump, from punishing a “champion” of “social justice,” Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr.

There is one final section of the report on Luis Ladaria’s letter to Jose Gomez that needs to be covered before offering a bit of final commentary:

— He said that if the U.S. bishops pursue a new policy, they should confer with bishops’ conferences in other countries “both to learn from one another and to preserve unity in the universal church.”

— He said any new policy could not override the authority of individual bishops to make decisions on who can receive Communion in their dioceses. Cardinal Wilton Gregory, the archbishop of Washington, D.C., has made clear that Biden is welcome to receive Communion at churches in the archdiocese.

Among the leaders of the campaign to rebuke Biden is Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco, who recently issued a pastoral letter arguing that Catholic politicians who support abortion rights should not receive Communion. A few days later, Bishop Robert McElroy of San Diego published an essay saying such an initiative “will bring tremendously destructive consequences.”

Ladaria’s letter was dated May 7. It was first reported Monday by Catholic News Service and the Jesuit magazine America. (Vatican Warns US “Bishops” Over “Get Tough” Communion Proposals.)

This is the equivalent of telling the victims of Andrew Mark Cuomo’s promiscuous predatory behavior and/or the victims of Figlio di Sfachim’s decision to send patients with the CCP/Wuhan/China/Chinese/Covid-19/Coronavirus into nursing homes to seek the advice of Christopher Cuomo concerning whether to hold his brother to account for his crimes before God and men. Perhaps Luis Ladaria would have Jose Gomez, Salvatore Cordileone, Thomas Tobin, Joseph Strickland, and Raymond Burke consult Reinhard Marx and his brother German “bishops” about whether it is too “harsh” to deny pro-abortion, pro-sodomite Catholics what purports to be Holy Communion in the Protestant and Judeo-Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical abomination. On second thought, this is precisely what Luis Ladaria wants the American “bishops” to do, and he has made it clear that their boss, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, sides with Wilton Gregory and Robert McElory, not Jose Gomez nor Salvatore Cordileone. Bergoglio is using his front man, Luis Ladaria, to end the "Communion Wars" (this article dealt with Timothy Michael Dolan’s epic cowardice  in dealing with the likes of Andrew Mark Cuomo and other pro-aborts within his jurisdiction) that are unique to the conciliar sect’s American “bishops” as no one conciliar “episcopal conference” in the world is at all concerned about the status of pro-abortion and pro-sodomites in public life being considered as Catholics in good standing.

Jorge Mario Bergoglio knows precisely what he is doing. He knows that he has just cut the legs out from every “conservative,” “pro-life” “bishop” in the United States of America and has also made it next to impossible, humanly speaking, for any Catholic to argue about pro-abortion Catholic politicians with his relatives, friends, coworkers, fellow parishioners, or acquaintances no matter where they fall along the vast expanse of the ecclesiastical divide in this time of apostasy and betrayal. Indeed, two of the pro-abortion Catholics in public life are relatives of readers of this site. These reprobates can now pull out the “pope” card in any “dialogue” that their truly Catholic relatives want to have in order to warn them of the eternal consequences that they will face if they persevere until they die in their support for evils cry that out to Heaven for vengeance.

“Are you more Catholic than the pope?” such people might ask.

Here is the answer one must give in such a “dialogue”: “The “pope” is not the pope precisely because he is not a Catholic, and neither are you.”

Bergoglio runs a protection racket for pro-abortion, pro-sodomite statists, pantheists, socialists, communists, other assorted globalists, Big Pharma, and the censorious lords of Big Tech. The only thing he is not running is the Catholic Church as he is the current head of its counterfeit ape. This is a point that those “conservative,” “pro-life” Catholics within the structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism who believe in what the late Father Anthony Cekada correctly termed the “cardboard pope” must come to understand as they gnash their teeth, rend their garments, and spend a great deal of time writing lamentations over the “bad” pope who is, after all, no pope at all.

What “conservatives” and outright resist while recognize Catholics must come to understand is that abortion, as horrific as it is, is lower on the hierarchy of evils than crimes against God. Heresy, apostasy, blasphemy, and sacrilege are direct sins against the honor, glory, and majesty of God and make a mockery of His Sacred Deposit of Faith and turn the Sacred Worship that is His due into a spectacle of communitarian self-congratulations.

As horrific as the chemical and surgical execution of the innocent preborn is one of the four crimes that cry out to Heaven for vengeance, we must remember that the greatest criminals alive today are the spiritual robber barons of the counterfeit church of conciliarism who promote one false, heretical proposition after another on an almost daily basis as they reaffirm hardened sinners in their lives of eternal perdition and castigate believing Catholics.

The conciliar revolutionaries have sought to undermine and eclipse all notion of dogmatic permanence and liturgical reverence.

The conciliar revolutionaries have made it appear as though the “Church of Christ” is not coextensive with the Catholic Church.

The conciliar revolutionaries have made it appear as though false religions please God and are a legitimate means of human sanctification and salvation.

The conciliar revolutionaries have made it appear as though the Old Covenant God made with Moses is perfectly valid and was never superseded by the New and Eternal Covenant that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ instituted at the Last Supper on Holy Thursday and that He ratified by shedding every single drop of His Most Precious Blood during His Passion and Death on the wood of the Holy Cross on Good Friday.

The conciliar revolutionaries have endorsed countless errors that have been condemned by our true popes, whose reaffirmations of immutable truths contained in the Sacred Deposit of Faith and/or inhere in the very nature of things have been scuttled by use of various euphemisms (“living tradition,” “hermeneutic of continuity”) to mask the old Modernist precept of dogmatic evolutionism that has finally been called as such and embraced with enthusiasm by various and sundry of Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s henchmen within the counterfeit church of conciliarism.

Crimes against God and His Holy Deposit Faith are graver in His sight than are even the crimes that cry out to Heaven for vengeance (willful murder, the sin of Sodom, withholding the day laborer’s wages, defrauding the widow). Yet it is that these crimes are being committed each day as God Himself is profaned every time the liturgical abomination of desolation promulgated by Giovanni Battista Enrico Antonio Maria Montini/Paul VI is staged.

This is to say nothing of the way in which the honor and glory of the Most Holy Trinity is blasphemed by billions of ordinary people worldwide on a daily basis nor to discuss sins of impurity, indecency, scurrilous speech and the wholesale usury that is at the foundation of the world’s economic system. It impossible for there to be right order in civil societies when such order does not exist in the souls of men who not only persist in their sins unrepentantly but who have sought to protect their sins under the cover of the civil law and to celebrate them widely.

Once again, therefore, consider these words of Silvio Cardinal Antoniano, who lived from December 31, 1540, to August 16, 1603, as quoted in Pope Pius XI’s Divini Illius Magistri, December 31, 1929:

The more closely the temporal power of a nation aligns itself with the spiritual, and the more it fosters and promotes the latter, by so much the more it contributes to the conservation of the commonwealth. For it is the aim of the ecclesiastical authority by the use of spiritual means, to form good Christians in accordance with its own particular end and object; and in doing this it helps at the same time to form good citizens, and prepares them to meet their obligations as members of a civil society. This follows of necessity because in the City of God, the Holy Roman Catholic Church, a good citizen and an upright man are absolutely one and the same thing. How grave therefore is the error of those who separate things so closely united, and who think that they can produce good citizens by ways and methods other than those which make for the formation of good Christians. For, let human prudence say what it likes and reason as it pleases, it is impossible to produce true temporal peace and tranquillity by things repugnant or opposed to the peace and happiness of eternity. (Silvio Cardinal Antoniano, quoted by Pope Pius XI in Divini Illius Magistri, December 31, 1929.)

God the Holy Ghost saw fit to instruct us in Sacred Scripture, including in the passage from the Book of Proverbs:

[34] Justice exalteth a nation: but sin maketh nations miserable. (Proverbs 14: 34.)

Christ the King will not be mocked. He will suffer the sins of men so that they and their nations might be brought to repentance. He is not, however, indifferent that which Him to suffer in His Sacred Humanity during His Passion and Death on the wood of the Holy Cross, sin, and that wounds the Church Militant on earth and impedes the pursuit of the true common temporal good of men and their nations.

This is the time of the Great Apostasy. It is time for all Catholics to take seriously the following words of Dom Prosper Gueranger, O.S.B., about Pope Saint Leo the Great concerning the nature of the papacy itself that has been undermined perhaps even more by the “resist while recognize” crowd than by the conciliar revolutionaries themselves:

When the Lord, as we read in the Evangelist, asked His disciples Who did men, amid their divers speculations, believe that He, the Son of Man, was; blessed Peter answered and said Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And Jesus answered and said unto him Blessed art thou, Simon Barjona for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but My Father, Which is in heaven and I say also unto thee, that thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build My Church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it; and I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Thus therefore standeth the ordinance of the Truth, and blessed Peter, abiding still that firm rock which God hath made him, hath never lost that right to rule in the Church which God hath given unto him.

In the universal Church it is Peter that doth still say every day, Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God, and every tongue which confesseth that Jesus is Lord is taught that confession by the teaching of Peter. This is the faith that overcometh the devil and looseth the bands of his prisoners. This is the faith which maketh men free of the world and bringeth them to heaven, and the gates of hell are impotent to prevail against it. With such ramparts of salvation hath God fortified this rock, that the contagion of heresy will never be able to infect it, nor idolatry and unbelief to overcome it. This teaching it is, my dearly beloved brethren, which maketh the keeping of this Feast to-day to be our reasonable service, even the teaching which maketh you to know and honour in myself, lowly though I be, that Peter who is still entrusted with the care of all other shepherds and of all the flocks to them committed, and whose authority I have, albeit unworthy to be his heir.

When, therefore, we address our exhortations to your godly ears, believe ye that ye are hearing him speak whose office we are discharging. Yea, it is with his love for you that we warn you, and we preach unto you no other thing than that which he taught, entreating you that ye would gird up the loins of your mind and lead pure and sober lives in the fear of God. My disciples dearly beloved, ye are to me, as the disciples of the Apostle Paul were to him, (Phil. iv. 1,) a crown and a joy, if your faith, which, in the first times of the Gospel, was spoken of throughout the whole world, Rom. i. 8, abide still lovely and holy. For, albeit it behoveth the whole Church which is spread throughout all the world, to be strong in righteousness, you it chiefly becometh above all other peoples to excel in worth and godliness, whose house is built upon the very crown of the Rock of the Apostle, and whom not only hath our Lord Jesus Christ, as He hath redeemed all men, but whom also His blessed Apostle Peter hath made the foremost object of his teaching. (Pope Saint Leo the Great, as found in Matins, The Divine Office, Feast of Pope Saint Leo the Great.)

Well, it is all there, isn’t it?

One must engage in all kinds of intellectual gymnastics to believe that the contagion of heresy is not rife within the counterfeit church of conciliarism, which is why all those who are not yet convinced of the truth of our ecclesiastical situation in this time of apostasy and betrayal should re-read these words:

This is the faith which maketh men free of the world and bringeth them to heaven, and the gates of hell are impotent to prevail against it. With such ramparts of salvation hath God fortified this rock, that the contagion of heresy will never be able to infect it, nor idolatry and unbelief to overcome it. (Pope Saint Leo the Great, as found in Matins, The Divine Office, Feast of Pope Saint Leo the Great.)

Jorge Mario Bergoglio has esteemed the symbols of idolaters. So have Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI and “Saint John Paul II” before his own election as the head of the false conciliar sect on March 13, 2013, and Bergoglio has shown repeatedly that he has no belief in the integrity of the Catholic Faith. So have his predecessors in the past sixty-two and one-half years.

Dom Prosper Gueranger praised Pope Saint Leo the Great as follows in The Liturgical Year:

One of the grandest Saints in the Church’s Calendar is brought before us today. Leo, the Pontiff and Doctor, rises on the Paschal horizon, and calls for our admiration and love. As his name implies, he is the Lion of holy Church; thus representing, in his own person, one of the most glorious of our Lord’s titles. There have been twelve Popes who have had this name, and five of the number are enrolled in the catalogue of Saints; but not one of them has so honored the name as he whose feast we keep today: hence, he is called “Leo the Great.”

He deserved the appellation by what he did for maintaining the faith regarding the sublime mystery of the Incarnation. The Church had triumphed over the heresies that had attacked the dogma of the Trinity, when the gates of hell sought to prevail against the dogma of God having been made Man. Nestorius, a Bishop of Constantinople, impiously taught that there were two distinct Persons in Christ—the Person of the Divine Word, and the Person of Man. The Council of Ephesus condemned this doctrine, which, by denying the unity of Person in Christ, destroyed the true notion of the Redemption. A new heresy, the very opposite of that of Nestorianism, but equally subversive of Christianity, soon followed. The monk Eutyches maintained that, in the Incarnation, the Human Nature was absorbed by the Divine. The error was propagated with frightful rapidity. There was needed a clear and authoritative exposition of the great dogma, which is the foundation of all our hopes. Leo arose, and, from the Apostolic Chair, on which the Holy Ghost had placed him, proclaimed with matchless eloquence and precision the formula of the ancient faith—ancient, indeed, and ever the same, yet ever acquiring greater and fresher brightness. A cry of admiration was raised at the General Council of Chalcedon, which had been convened for the purpose of condemning the errors of Eutyches. “Peter,” exclaimed the Fathers, “Peter has spoken by the mouth of Leo!” As we shall see further on, the Eastern Church has kept up the enthusiasm thus excited by the magnificent teachings given by Leo to the whole world.

The Barbarian hordes were invading the West; the Empire was little more than a ruin: and Attila, “the Scourge of God, was marching on towards Rome. Leo’s majestic bearing repelled the invasion, as his word had checked the ravages of heresy. The haughty king of the Huns, before whose armies the strongest citadels had fallen, granted an audience to the Pontiff on the banks of the Mincio, and promised to spare Rome. The calm and dignity of Leo—who thus unarmed confronted the most formidable enemy of the Empire and exposed his life for his flock—awed the barbarian, who afterwards told his people that, during the interview, he saw a venerable person standing, in an attitude of defense, by the side of Rome’s intercessor: it was the Apostle St. Peter. Attila not only admired, he feared the Pontiff. It was truly a sublime spectacle, and one that was full of meaning;—a Priest, with no arms save those of his character and virtues, forcing a king such as Attila was, to do homage to a devotedness which he could ill understand, and recognize, by submission, the influence of a power which had heaven on its side. Leo, single-handed and at once, did what it took the whole of Europe several ages to accomplish later on.

That the aureola of Leo’s glory might be complete, the Holy Ghost gifted him with an eloquence which, on account of its majesty and richness, might deservedly be called Papal. The Latin language had, at that time, lost its ancient vigor; but we frequently come across passages in the writings of our Saint which remind us of the golden age.

In exposing the dogmas of our holy Faith, he uses a style so dignified and so impregnated with the savor of sacred antiquity, that it seems made for the subject. He has several admirable Sermons on the Resurrection; and speaking of the present Season of the Liturgical Year, he says: “The days that intervened between our Lord’s Resurrection and Ascension, were not days on which nothing was done: on the contrary, great were the Sacraments then confirmed, and great were the mysteries that were revealed.” (Dom Prosper Gueranger, O.S.B., The Liturgical Year, April 11, Feast of Pope Saint Leo the Great.)

“Peter has spoken by the mouth of Leo.”

Yes, it is always Saint Peter who speaks through the mouth of a true and legitimate Successor of Saint Peter.

Have the conciliar “popes” spoken truth or have they, quite instead, propagated falsehoods with ready abandon and made it appear as though their invocation of a “living tradition” and/or a “hermeneutic of continuity” can disguise their belief in the philosophically absurd and dogmatically condemned Modernist precept of dogmatic evolutionism. Indeed, the conciliar revolution has degenerated to the point where some of Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s “theologians” speak openly in support of dogmatic evolutionism without making any advertence whatsoever to the euphemisms used by Giovanni Battista Enrico Antonio Maria Montini/Paul VI, Karol Josef Wojtyla/John Paul II, or Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict XVI.

The devil, not Saint Peter, has spoken and continue to speak through the mouths of the current line of antipopes.

In this regard, therefore, it is important to pray, fast and to make sacrifices for those of good will in the conciliar structures to recognize these stark truths that compel any honest Catholic to realize that the conciliar apostates are spiritual robber barons who had seized the buildings of the Catholic Church to perpetuate the greatest fraud known in salvation history:

When the Lord, as we read in the Gospel, asked his disciples who did men, amid their divers speculations, believe him the Son of Man to be, blessed Peter answered and said: Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. And the Lord answered and said unto him: Blessed art thou, Simon Bar-Jona: for flesh and blood hath not revealed it unto thee, but my Father, which is in heaven: and I say also unto thee: That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my Church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it; and I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven; and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven; and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. But the dispensation of truth perdures, and blessed Peter, persevering in the strength of the rock which he hath received, hath not relinquished the position he assumed at the helm of the Church.

In the universal Church it is as if Peter were still saying every day: Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God. For every tongue which confesseth the Lord is taught that confession by the teaching of Peter. This is the Faith that overcometh the devil and looseth the bonds of his prisoners. This is the Faith which maketh men free of the world and bringeth them to heaven, and the gates of hell are impotent to prevail against it. This is the rock which God hath fortified with such ramparts of salvation, that the contagion of heresy will never be able to infect it, nor idolatry and unbelief to overcome it. And therefore, dearly beloved, we celebrate today's festival with reasonable obedience, that in my humble person he may be acknowledged and honoured who doth continue to care for all the shepherds as well as sheep entrusted unto him, and who doth lose none of his dignity even in an unworthy successor. (As found in Matins, Divine Office, Feast of Pope Saint Clement, November 23.)

With only one exception, all of the documents which attest Clement's intervention in the affairs of distant churches have perished with time; but the one that remains shows us in full action the monarchical power of the bishop of Rome at that primitive epoch. The church of Corinth was disturbed with intestine quarrels caused by jealously against certain pastors. These divisions, the germ of which had appeared even in St. Paul's time, had destroyed all peace, and were causing scandal to the very pagans. The Corinthians at last felt the necessity of putting an end to a disorder which might be prejudicial to the extension of the Christian faith; and for this purpose it was requisite to seek assistance from outside. The apostle had all departed this life, except St. John, who was still the light of the Church. It was not great distance from Corinth to Ephesus where the apostle resided: yet it was not to Ephesus but to Rome that the church of Corinth turned. Clement examined the case referred to his judgment by that church, and sent to Corinth five commissaries to represent the Apostolic See. They were bearers of a letter, which St. Irenaeus calls potentissimas litteras. It was considered at the time so beautiful and so apostolic, that it was long read in many churches as a sort of continuation of the canonical Scriptures. Its tone is dignified but paternal, according to St. Peter's advice to pastors. There is nothing in it of a domineering spirit; but the grave and solemn language bespeaks the universal pastor, whom none can disobey without disobeying God Himself. These words so solemn and so firm wrought the desired effect: peace was re-established in the church of Corinth, and the messengers of the Roman Pontiff soon brought back the happy news. A century later, St. Dionysius, bishop of Corinth, expressed to Pope St. Soter the gratitude still felt by his flock towards Clement for the service he had rendered. (Dom Prosper Gueranger, O.S.B., The Liturgical Year.)

Well, just at is way, way past time for “dialogue” with Catholic pro-aborts and pro-perverts in public life, it is really, way, way past time for those who believe that such a thing as a heretical pope is even ontologically possible, no less who keep insisting that there have been heretical popes in the past even though this falsehood has been refuted definitively and repeatedly over the past three decades or so, to come to grips with these clear statements about the Catholic Faith that make it abundantly clear that the Holy Faith has entirely, or it is not held at all:

There are some person, dear listeners, who hold almost everything with a firm faith that Catholics hold: but there is one thing or another, which they have not yet been able to accept completely, such as that purgatory exists, that sacred images are to be venerated, that the sovereign Pontiff is the vicar of Christ and the head of the whole Church. And since there are many things that they believe, and only one or two things that they do not believe and consider it is not important if taken together with the other articles, they think they are situated very well on the foundation of Christ. What is the difference, they say, even if I err in that one thing, which I still cannot believe, and at the judgment will the Lord be concerned about that? And will he not be mindful of the many difficult things I believe? Indeed, this is the way in which they flatter themselves; I serious rebuke them and say that they have fallen from grace and have laid their foundation on sand, and will have no part with ChristEither the faith is had completely, or it is not had at all. There is one Lord, one faith, one baptism. I ask you (to clarify the matter with a crass example), when you order a pair of shoes from a shoemaker, if when they are finally made you find they are an inch shorter than your feet, do you not put them on and wear them? Your will say “I cannot wear them” But they are only an inch too short, so why can't you wear them, since they are just a little bit short of the right measurement? As, therefore, your shoes are either the right size for your feet or they have no value at all, so also the faith is either integral, or it is not the faith. Therefore no one should deceive himself. If we want to build a house which cannot be moved by wind or rain, we must lay the foundation of both rocks, that is, on Christ and Peter. (Sermons of St. Robert Bellarmine, S.J., Part II: Sermons 30-55, Including the Four Last Things and the Annunciation., translated from the Latin by Father Kenneth Baker, S.J., and published in 2017 by Keep the Faith, Inc., Ramsey, New Jersey, pp. 152-154.)

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.)

“Pope Francis” is not the “pope” as it is impossible for a Catholic to adhere to his teaching without defecting from the Catholic Faith as he, Bergoglio, did in his youth in Argentina.

Moreover, each of the conciliar “popes” and “bishops” have violated the First Commandment by praising false religions, participating in inter-religious “prayer” services and even, in the case of most of them, esteeming the symbols of false religions themselves. Bergoglio’s indifference to the slaughter of the innocent preborn is just the logical denouement of a regime of sixty-two and one-half years of apostasy, sacrilege, heresy, error and betrayal that is now culminating in a frank, outright admission that the dogmatic evolutionism condemned in The Syllabus of Errors, December 8, 1864, the [First] Vatican Council’s Dogmatic Constitution on the Catholic Faith, April 24, 1870, Saint Pius X’s Pascendi Dominci Gregis, September 8, 1907, and Pope Pius XII’s Humani Generis, April 12, 1950.

Although we may not live to see the resolution of this era of apostasy and betrayal, we can continue to try to plant the seeds for the restoration of a true pope on the Throne of Saint Peter and the vanquishing of the heresies that abound at this time as we pray as well that Catholics of good will in the conciliar structures will respond to Our Lady’s graces with alacrity to see the truth, something that it took me much too long—inexcusably long—to see and accept.

We can do this by offering up our entire liberty—everything—as the consecrated slaves of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of  Mary, being content to let her make use of whatever merits we might earn according to her sweet dispositions that are to be found in the depth of her maternal heart that longs for the children redeemed by the shedding of every single drop of her Divine Son’s Most Precious Blood to save their souls. All we need to do is to live more penitentially by offering up to her Divine Son through that same Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart our acts of reparation for our many sins as we beg her for the graces of final perseverance.

The Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph in the end.

We have nothing to fear.

Appendix B

Edward Speno's Early Support for Abortion

New York State Senator Edward Speno who voted for the original baby-killing law in New York on March 18, 1970, maintained his "good standing" what he thought was the Catholic Church. His bishop, Bishop Walter Philip Kellenberg, who was named by Pope Pius XII as the founding bishop of the Diocese of Rockville Centre on April 16, 1957, did not discipline him in the slightest. God, however, had other plans for Speno, who died suddenly of a heart attack at the age of fifty, less than a year after he voted to permit baby-killing under cover of the civil law in the State of New York. This is the section from Speno's obituary in The New York Times:

Although the Senator, a Catholic, was identified with his church on school aid, he broke with the hierarchy last year and voted for abortion liberealization. He explained his stand by saying that he did not want to impose his personal beliefs on others. (The New York Times, "Senator Edward Speno Dies; Favored Parochial School Aid, February 17, 1971. This is one of those articles that I had to purchase to get the exact quote that I wanted before typing in the text manually. I may not be--and have never claimed to be an intellectual., great or otherwise. I am, however, a pretty decent researcher.)

Edward Speno did not "want to impose his personal beliefs on others." He was reminded at the moment of his own Particular Judgment that morality exists in the very nature of things. The tenets of the Natural Law are knowable by reason. The Catholic Church is merely the eternal guardian and infallible explicator of those tenets so as to remove confusion from the minds of men so clouded by, at least in some instances, Original Sin (and its vestigial after-effects in the souls of the baptized) and Actual Sins to aid them in understanding the Natural Law more clearly and to strengthen their wills by means of Holy Mother Church's sanctifying offices to speak up in their defense. There also happens to be Fifth Commandment: Thou shalt not kill.

As Pope Leo XIII explained in Sapientiae Christianae, January 11, 1890:

Now, if the natural law enjoins us to love devotedly and to defend the country in which we had birth, and in which we were brought up, so that every good citizen hesitates not to face death for his native land, very much more is it the urgent duty of Christians to be ever quickened by like feelings toward the Church. For the Church is the holy City of the living God, born of God Himself, and by Him built up and established. Upon this earth, indeed, she accomplishes her pilgrimage, but by instructing and guiding men she summons them to eternal happiness. We are bound, then, to love dearly the country whence we have received the means of enjoyment this mortal life affords, but we have a much more urgent obligation to love, with ardent love, the Church to which we owe the life of the soul, a life that will endure forever. For fitting it is to prefer the good of the soul to the well-being of the body, inasmuch as duties toward God are of a far more hallowed character than those toward men.

Moreover, if we would judge aright, the supernatural love for the Church and the natural love of our own country proceed from the same eternal principle, since God Himself is their Author and originating Cause. Consequently, it follows that between the duties they respectively enjoin, neither can come into collision with the other. We can, certainly, and should love ourselves, bear ourselves kindly toward our fellow men, nourish affection for the State and the governing powers; but at the same time we can and must cherish toward the Church a feeling of filial piety, and love God with the deepest love of which we are capable. The order of precedence of these duties is, however, at times, either under stress of public calamities, or through the perverse will of men, inverted. For, instances occur where the State seems to require from men as subjects one thing, and religion, from men as Christians, quite another; and this in reality without any other ground, than that the rulers of the State either hold the sacred power of the Church of no account, or endeavor to subject it to their own will. Hence arises a conflict, and an occasion, through such conflict, of virtue being put to the proof. The two powers are confronted and urge their behests in a contrary sense; to obey both is wholly impossible. No man can serve two masters, for to please the one amounts to contemning the other.

As to which should be preferred no one ought to balance for an instant. It is a high crime indeed to withdraw allegiance from God in order to please men, an act of consummate wickedness to break the laws of Jesus Christ, in order to yield obedience to earthly rulers, or, under pretext of keeping the civil law, to ignore the rights of the Church; "we ought to obey God rather than men." This answer, which of old Peter and the other Apostles were used to give the civil authorities who enjoined unrighteous things, we must, in like circumstances, give always and without hesitation. No better citizen is there, whether in time of peace or war, than the Christian who is mindful of his duty; but such a one should be ready to suffer all things, even death itself, rather than abandon the cause of God or of the Church. (Pope Leo XIII, Sapientiae Christianae, January 10, 1890.) 

Did Edward Speno know this?

Well, perhaps he was taught this at Niagara University, which is under the control of the Congregation of the Mission (the Vincentian Fathers of Saint Vincent de Paul) when he studied there from 1938 to 1944. Perhaps. He sure did not learn it from his own bishop, Walter P. Kellenberg (who was the bishop who confirmed me at Saint Aloysius Church on March 21, 1961).

Why not?

Well, the bishop who consecrated Father Walter P. Kellenberg, a native of the Borough of the Bronx in the City of New York, as a auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of New York on October 5, 1953, was none other than Francis Cardinal Spellman, who, as noted in the body of this commentary, enabled the Sangerite forces on Puerto Rico fifty-seven years ago to make it more possible for United States Senator John Fitzgerald Kennedy (D-Massachusetts) to become the first Catholic to be elected to the American presidency later that year, 1960.

Although Bishop Walter Kellenberg did not insist that the pastor, Father Francis Bain, of Saint Raphael's Church in East Meadow, New York, who refused Speno a "Mass of Christian" Burial reverse himself, he did permit such a "service" to be staged at Sacred Heart Church in North Merrick, New York. This was the first known instance, at least to me, of a Catholic who cooperated formally in making surgical baby-killing "available" under cover of the civil law receiving what purported to be a Catholic funeral service. Many have been the occasions since this that this has been done, scandalizing "pro-life" Catholics and "pro-life" non-Catholics alike.
