Duties for my family require whatever articles are posted on this site these days be very brief, perhaps even mercifully brief for both you, the reader, and for me, the beleaguered writer.
As I have dealt with the madness of Jorge Mario Bergoglio's having told the the "convergence" "bishop" named Tony Palmer, who belonged to the "Communion of Episcopal Evangelical Churches" and was associated with an organization that goes by the name of "Kenneth Copeland Ministeries,"that he had no intention of converting him (see Will “Coercionism” Accompany “Resignationism”) and his praise of the poor man after he had been killed in a motorcycle accident in the United Kingdom on Sunday, July 20, 2014 (see Accepting Apostasy In Increments, part two), there is no need to do much by way of commenting on the news that Mr. Palmer was buried as a "bishop" in a Protestant and Judeo-Masonic Novus Ordo Protestant liturgical service as a "bishop":
I attended the requiem of the late Bishop Tony Palmer at St. John the Evangelist Roman Catholic Church in the City of Bath on the 6th August. Canon David Ryan the parish priest at St. John’s ( a truly beautiful and Spirit filled believer) kindly gave me a place to stay in the presbytery so that I didn’t have to rush back home after the funeral or seek more expensive accommodation in the city.
I arrived after a rather long and tedious journey by train from Bexhill-on Sea to Bath, arriving a couple of hours before the funeral. (A special word of sincere thanks goes to my dear friends in the USA, Vivian Ruth Sawyer and Thomas Nolan who helped finance my attendance).
St. John the Evangelist church is situated in the city centre five minutes from the railway station, so I had time to rest and eat some pizza, which the house keeper had kindly prepared, before other guests started arriving. The Requiem was purposefully arranged to be at 4p.m. to enable the funeral cortège to get through the heavily congested city centre roads, many of which had road works in progress.
Bishops and priests from the Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches arrived an hour or so before the start of the requiem mass, along with guests from other churches locally and from around the world. Bruno Ierullo and Steve Long the senior Pastor of Catch the Fire Church in Toronto came and represented John and Carol Arnott who had recently been with Bishop Tony and Pope Francis at a meeting in the Vatican of a number of Charismatic Evangelicals from North America.
I felt a little like a lion in a den of Daniels, but my fear diminished as we greeted one another and shared our stories as to why we were there and how Bishop Tony had been influential in all our lives. In one way or another his life and vision had touched each of us individually. I found myself completely at home with these brothers and sisters in Christ who were encourager’s and enablers in so many ways.
(Tony’s family arrived about a twenty minutes before the start of the mass; Emiliana his wife and their two children, Daniele and Gabriella, along with Tony’s sister and other relatives and close friends).
We all shared and discussed different matters and I was able to share the vision of the Companions of Jesus and found all responded favourably. In fact I found again here just as I had done with Tony, that we shared a common vision for unity in the Body of Christ. Bishop David Carr OSL and his brother Bishop Anthony Carr OSL spoke to me about the Order of St. Leonard and were interested in how the Companions of Jesus is a Non-Denominational Order with a very similar vision. (A quote from the OSL website reads, “The primary goal of the OSL was, and is, to bring together all Christians, regardless of differing denominations and streams, without leaving their distinctive groupings, in to a unified fellowship for prayer, mission and to help the disadvantaged.”).
I have forgotten some names of the many who I spoke with, Fr. Steve Hughes, Revd. Esther Squire, Fr.Giles and Bishop James of the CEEC along with a number of local Anglican priests who knew Tony.
Fr. David our wonderful host led us out to greet Tony’s mortal remains as they arrived at the entrance to the Church. Fr. David told us he would like us as ministers to lead the procession up to the sanctuary and for us to remain at the front either side of the altar in the choir stalls. Fr David confessed that he would have loved us to be able to con-celebrate with him, but for now this was impossible. He found he had to remember his vow of obedience to the diocesan bishop and knew we would understand.
Fr. David told us that because Tony was not a Roman Catholic he had to ask his bishops permission to celebrate the requiem and though Tony’ s wife and children are Roman Catholics, permission still had to be given for the requiem. The bishop agreed but said that Tony could not be buried as a bishop as he was not a Roman Catholic bishop. However, Pope Francis said he should and could be buried as a bishop…and so that put an end to that little bit of ecclesiastical nonsense!
The Church was packed and though the Ark Community had wanted to have the funeral to go out live on streamed TV over the internet, there were too many technical problems. The church of St. John the Evangelist is a magnificent building in the centre of Bath, but like so many old monolithic structures it is suffering from age and is in need of a number of repairs. The church this week was full of scaffolding which trellis like covered one side of the church from ground to ceiling, from entrance right up to the sanctuary where the Tony’s Coffin was placed at the foot of the sanctuary in front of the altar.
As I sat with my fellow brother and sister ministers looking down from the choir stalls to the side of the altar, I was struck by the prophetic vision that was before us. I saw Tony’s coffin next to the trellis of iron girders and heard that call to St Francis of Assisi and more recently to Tony Palmer, a call to go and repair the brokenness of The Church. There in this building, in such need of repair, was a picture…of the Body of Christ, The Church of God. There in the coffin lay the remains of a man who like our seraphic father Francis had heeded the call to ‘go and repair my house which as you can see is in ruins’.
Other too heard that call this day and so it is for each of us to continue on this road which The Lord calls us to and which Tony helped re-lay, a road that draws brothers who have been too long divided, together again in Christ Jesus.
The requiem was beautiful, the liturgy fitting for such an occasion, the music was uplifting led by the Vineyard Church Fellowship and the music ministry of St’ Johns church. Daniele and Gabriella both spoke lovingly and passionately of their father. Emiliana read out a letter from Pope Francis that was both touching and profound.
Tony’s mortal remains were taken to the Eyre Chapel Crypt, at Perrymeade Catholic Cemetery, in Bath.
In part of the message Pope Francis sent to the conference of Charismatic Evangelical Christians in the USA through Bishop Tony, Pope Francis said, “ I am speaking to you as a brother. I speak to you in a simple way. With joy and yearning. Let us allow our yearning to grow, because this will propel us to find each other, to embrace one another. And together to worship Jesus Christ as the only Lord of History.”
I pray that we will work and walk together in the power of The Holy Spirit and that the blessing promised in Psalm 133 will be ours. (Bergoglio Insisted that Tony Palmer Be Buried as a Bishop.)
Well, it takes one to know one.
Yes it takes one false "bishop" to recognize another false "bishop" and to accord him full honors on SS One World Ecumenical Church.
Although the point has been made many times before on this site, the plain fact of the matter is that the lords of conciliarism have, despite all of their huffing and puffing about finding a way "around" Pope Leo XIII's infallible declaration in Apostolicae Curae, September 15, 1896, about Anglican orders being null and void according to do the dictates of Modernism's "evolution of dogma (which was sold as a "living tradition" by "Saint Paul John Paul II" and then repackaged by Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI as the "hermeneutic of continuity," a concept that is philosphically absurd and dogmatically condemned), the plain fact of the matter is that Jorge Mario Bergoglio has dealt a mortal blow even to any formal, institutional belief within the counterfeit church of concilairism that the following words of Pope Leo XIII are valid in today's more "enlightened" world:
Wherefore, strictly adhering, in this matter, to the decrees of the pontiffs, our predecessors, and confirming them most fully, and, as it were, renewing them by our authority, of our own initiative and certain knowledge, we pronounce and declare that ordinations carried out according to the Anglican rite have been, and are, absolutely null and utterly void. . . .
We decree that these letters and all things contained therein shall not be liable at any time to be impugned or objected to by reason of fault or any other defect whatsoever of subreption or obreption of our intention, but are and shall be always valid and in force and shall be inviolably observed both juridically and otherwise, by all of whatsoever degree and preeminence, declaring null and void anything which, in these matters, may happen to be contrariwise attempted, whether wittingly or unwittingly, by any person whatsoever, by whatsoever authority or pretext, all things to the contrary notwithstanding. (Pope Leo XIII, Apostolicae Curae, September 18, 1896.)
Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who feareth not the Judgment of the Just God, could not care less about those words. That was "then," this is "now.
Yes, even though the lords of conciliarism used to pay lip service attention to Apostolicae Curae, even Giovanni Eugenio Antonio Maria Montini/Paul the Sick gave every public indication that it no longer mattered when he presented Anglican layman Michael Ramsey, then the “archbishop” of Canterbury, with the episcopal ring that he had worn as the Archbishop of Milan when the two meet in the Apostolic Palace on March 23, 1966. It is this ring that each Anglican layman posing as the “archbishop” of Canterbury has worn when visiting successive false “pontiffs” masquerading as true and legitimate Successors of Saint Peter. The current Laybishop of Canterbur, Justin Welby, wore that ring on June 16, 2014, as he administered a "blessing" to Laypope Bergoglio:
Moreover, “Saint John Paul II” and Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI both attempted to give “joint blessings” with “archbishops” of Canterbury. Here is a reminder of Ratzinger’s having done so on September 17, 2010:
One cannot convince those who do not convinced those who do not want to see the words that Bergoglio speaks and the images of abject apostasy on the part of the conciliar "popes," including the many images that have captured Joge Mario Bergoglio doing and say things that countless millions of martyrs, including the Wonderworker, Saint Philomena, whose feast, though not universally commemorated, sadly, is this day, August 11, 2014, suffered the most cruel tortures prior to giving up their lives rather than give the appearance of doing. The hour is late. Those who do not want to see the truth about the state of the Church Militant in this time of apostasy and betrayal really have no excuse before God to persist in willful blindness.
This is especially the case when one considers that devil is getting bolder and bolder, using champions of false ecumenism and syncretism such as the late layman Tony Palmer and the very alive Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who is off to the Republic of Korea (South Korea) in a few days, to declare that Protestant evangelicals and conciliarists believe in the same false gospel:
In 2012 Palmer’s family moved to England, to allow their son to prepare to enter university there. Palmer had little idea of Bergoglio’s rising star, but received an email three days before the conclave of March 2013 asking for his prayers. When he saw Pope Francis emerge on the balcony, Palmer was thrilled but assumed that their friendship would be over.
Shortly after the New Year, however, he received a call. Francis wanted to know when he was next in Rome, could he come by? On January 14, Palmer spent the morning with Francis in the Vatican residence where he now lives, the Domus Santa Marta.
“We didn’t have an agenda,” Palmer recalled. “He told me that we are brothers and nothing will change our friendship.”
Palmer told him that the following week he would be addressing 3,000 evangelicals at Kenneth Copeland’s international leaders’ conference in Fort Worth, Texas, and would he like to send a word of greeting?
“Let’s make a video,” Francis replied.
“You want me to pull out my iPhone and record you?” asked Palmer, astonished.
“Yes, exactly,” the pope answered.
When he presented the recording to the Pentecostals in Texas, Palmer said that few Protestants knew that the Catholic and Lutheran Churches had signed a historic declaration in 1999 settling the doctrinal issue of the Reformation.
“We preach the same Gospel now,” Palmer told them. “The protest is over.”
Then he played the video, in which Francis addressed them as brothers and sisters and said that with just “two rules” — love God above all, and your neighbor as yourself — “we can move ahead.” He spoke of the sin of separation, and his yearning for reconciliation. “Let us allow our yearning to grow, because this will propel us to find each other, to embrace one another, and together to worship Jesus Christ as the only Lord of History,” he told them. (Jorge's Protestant friend dies, but push for unity lives.)
Yes, they sure do preach the same "gospel" now, don't they?
Unfortunately for such unfortunate men, who are responsible for a devastation of souls far worse than the bloody carnage of bodies being strewn across Iraq and Syria by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the gospel they preach is from the devil, not from Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, Whose Holy Church, guided infallibly by God the Holy Ghost, has maintained His Holy Gospel in all of Its Holy Integrity and Virginal Purity without even a slight taint of error or confusion.
Pope Saint Pius X described and condemned the false gospel preached by Jorge Mario Bergoglio and his Protestant pals when he condemned the errors of The Sillon in Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910:
We fear that worse is to come: the end result of this developing promiscuousness, the beneficiary of this cosmopolitan social action, can only be a Democracy which will be neither Catholic, nor Protestant, nor Jewish. It will be a religion (for Sillonism, so the leaders have said, is a religion) more universal than the Catholic Church, uniting all men become brothers and comrades at last in the "Kingdom of God". - "We do not work for the Church, we work for mankind."
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.
We know only too well the dark workshops in which are elaborated these mischievous doctrines which ought not to seduce clear-thinking minds. The leaders of the Sillon have not been able to guard against these doctrines. The exaltation of their sentiments, the undiscriminating good-will of their hearts, their philosophical mysticism, mixed with a measure of illuminism, have carried them away towards another Gospel which they thought was the true Gospel of Our Savior. To such an extent that they speak of Our Lord Jesus Christ with a familiarity supremely disrespectful, and that - their ideal being akin to that of the Revolution - they fear not to draw between the Gospel and the Revolution blasphemous comparisons for which the excuse cannot be made that they are due to some confused and over-hasty composition.
We wish to draw your attention, Venerable Brethren, to this distortion of the Gospel and to the sacred character of Our Lord Jesus Christ, God and man, prevailing within the Sillon and elsewhere. As soon as the social question is being approached, it is the fashion in some quarters to first put aside the divinity of Jesus Christ, and then to mention only His unlimited clemency, His compassion for all human miseries, and His pressing exhortations to the love of our neighbor and to the brotherhood of men. True, Jesus has loved us with an immense, infinite love, and He came on earth to suffer and die so that, gathered around Him in justice and love, motivated by the same sentiments of mutual charity, all men might live in peace and happiness. But for the realization of this temporal and eternal happiness, He has laid down with supreme authority the condition that we must belong to His Flock, that we must accept His doctrine, that we must practice virtue, and that we must accept the teaching and guidance of Peter and his successors. Further, whilst Jesus was kind to sinners and to those who went astray, He did not respect their false ideas, however sincere they might have appeared. He loved them all, but He instructed them in order to convert them and save them. Whilst He called to Himself in order to comfort them, those who toiled and suffered, it was not to preach to them the jealousy of a chimerical equality. Whilst He lifted up the lowly, it was not to instill in them the sentiment of a dignity independent from, and rebellious against, the duty of obedience. Whilst His heart overflowed with gentleness for the souls of good-will, He could also arm Himself with holy indignation against the profaners of the House of God, against the wretched men who scandalized the little ones, against the authorities who crush the people with the weight of heavy burdens without putting out a hand to lift them. He was as strong as he was gentle. He reproved, threatened, chastised, knowing, and teaching us that fear is the beginning of wisdom, and that it is sometimes proper for a man to cut off an offending limb to save his body. Finally, He did not announce for future society the reign of an ideal happiness from which suffering would be banished; but, by His lessons and by His example, He traced the path of the happiness which is possible on earth and of the perfect happiness in heaven: the royal way of the Cross. These are teachings that it would be wrong to apply only to one's personal life in order to win eternal salvation; these are eminently social teachings, and they show in Our Lord Jesus Christ something quite different from an inconsistent and impotent humanitarianism. (Pope Saint Pius X, Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910.)
We need a true pope.
Pray more Rosaries for this intention.
