Always Open to Strange Gods
by Thomas A. Droleskey
The true popes of the Catholic Church have taught us repeatedly that it is impossible for Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ's Mystical Bride on earth to give us error of any kind.
Pope Gregory XVI, writing in Singulari Nos, issued on June 25, 1834, nearly one hundred seventy-five years ago now, made this point abundantly clear:
As for the rest, We greatly deplore the fact that, where the ravings of human reason extend, there is somebody who studies new things and strives to know more than is necessary, against the advice of the apostle. There you will find someone who is overconfident in seeking the truth outside the Catholic Church, in which it can be found without even a light tarnish of error. Therefore, the Church is called, and is indeed, a pillar and foundation of truth. You correctly understand, venerable brothers, that We speak here also of that erroneous philosophical system which was recently brought in and is clearly to be condemned. This system, which comes from the contemptible and unrestrained desire for innovation, does not seek truth where it stands in the received and holy apostolic inheritance. Rather, other empty doctrines, futile and uncertain doctrines not approved by the Church, are adopted. Only the most conceited men wrongly think that these teachings can sustain and support that truth.
To wit, the Catholic Church never approved radical changes in her Sacred Liturgy, no less those that were designed to appeal to Protestants and founded in a belief that "outward forms of penance" belong to another age "in the history of the Church." (See Paragraph 15 of the General Instruction to the Roman Missal.)
The Catholic Church never approved a form of the Sacred Liturgy that was so unstable and which admits in its own "governing" documents of an endless variety of adaptations and "options" as to make it differ dramatically from one parish to another within the same community, no less from one time of the same day to another in the same day in the same parish.
The Catholic Church never spoke in ways that were ambiguous or unclear, leading her children to be uncertain about whether the unchanging truths of the unchanging and unchangeable God were now considered to subject to "change" by means of "interpretations" that cast the truths of Faith in different terms than they had been understood from time immemorial.
Pope Pius XI made this point abundantly clear in Mortalium Animos, January 6, 1928:
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.
The Catholic Church never made it appear as though false religions were pleasing to God or that it was in anything other than a grave and most heinous violation of the First Commandment to speak favorably of false religions, no less to esteem their symbols and to praise their nonexistent "ability" to contribute to the "building" of the "better world," a blasphemous contention that is of the essence of Judeo-Masonry:
Pope Pius XII made it clear that the Catholic Church never accorded any respect to false religions:
Her deportment has not changed in the course of history, nor can it change whenever or wherever, under the most diversified forms, she is confronted with the choice: either incense for idols or blood for Christ. The place where you are now present, Eternal Rome, with the remains of a greatness that was and with the glorious memories of its martyrs, is the most eloquent witness to the answer of the Church. Incense was not burned before the idols, and Christian blood flowed and consecrated the ground. But the temples of the gods lie in the cold devastation of ruins howsoever majestic; while at the tombs of the martyrs the faithful of all nations and all tongues fervently repeat the ancient Creed of the Apostles. (Pope Pius XII, Ci Riesce, December 6, 1953.)
"Her deportment has not changed in the course of history, nor can it change whenever or wherever, under the most diversified forms, she is confronted with the choice: either incense for idols or blood for Christ."
It seems as though many Catholics attached to the structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism refuse to accept the simple fact that the teaching and the pastoral deportment of the Catholic Church concerning false religions is subject to no change or alteration whatsoever. Such Catholics, no matter where they fall along the vast expanse of the ecclesiastical divide during this time of apostasy and betrayal, do not want to face--or to publicly admit--that Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI has indeed offended God greatly by means of the constant esteem he has given and the praise he has bestowed upon false religions and their symbols and their beliefs.
As I have noted in several other commentaries recently, including Accustomed to Apostasy and Respect Those Who Break the First Commandment? Respect Those Who Break the Fifth Commandment, most Catholics have become so accustomed to "papal" "blessings" given jointly with Protestant ministers and so accustomed to "papal" praises being sung of the "similarities" between Mohammedanism and Talmudic Judaism and so accustomed to the praxis of "papal" religious indifferentism, all protestations to the contrary notwithstanding, that they no longer have any outrage at all for the honor and glory and majesty of the Most Blessed Trinity: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost.
Sadder still is that many of those who do understand the horrors committed by Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI have chosen to keep their peace about them, believing in the delusion that God is going to restore the Church Militant on earth by a man who violates the First Commandment openly and blatantly, a man who denies the very nature and essence of God in the deepest of his core beliefs concerning how expressions of dogmatic truth are "conditioned" by the circumstances which gave rise to them.
Men may be indifferent to violations of the First Commandment committed by others. God is not indifferent to such violations. The Catholic Church has always forbidden any semblance of respect being paid to false religions. She has always forbidden inter-religious "prayer" or "dialogue" with false religions. As I noted four days ago now in Wonder No More, it is a denial of the Divine Constitution of Holy Mother Church to assert that she can "learn" anything from those who adhere to any false religion as everything that pertains to Divine Revelation has been entrusted to her entirely and exclusively by her Divine Founder and Invisible Head, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Although I have provided a great deal of evidence from the perennial teaching of the Catholic Church on the strict observance of the precepts of the First Commandment that bind each and every Catholic under pain of Mortal Sin, a very good collection of quotations on this matter has been gathered by a friend of mine, Mr. Mark Stabinski, who is not a sedevacantist, and were included in a recent article of his. He has given me permission to provide readers of this site with a few excerpts from his fine work:
Summarily, I am thus compelled to ask my traditionalist brethren: Is there none among you - either priest or private person - to come to the public defense of our King and Queen when they are publicly blasphemed? Who will come to the public defense of the Holy Trinity that is publicly denied - and especially by those purportedly holding the highest of offices in Holy Mother Church?
And for those among you who intend to persist in your silence: What keeps you silent - cowardice or indifference? Do you fear men more than you fear God?
Do you think that once having put your hand to Our Lord's plough, you now have His permission to turn back to the world and call that which is evil, good, using the most convoluted methods and fraudulent arguments?
I survey the traditionalist landscape and I hear, save for a mere handful of writers, nothing but - at best- silence, and at worst - traditionalist apologies for repetitive sins against the Faith, transgressions that deserve no apology.
I truly hope and fervently pray that this present invective will inspire in this readership a great outpouring of righteous rage against those who continue daily to both betray our Lord and further pervert the mission of His Holy Church. Nothing would make me happier than to be forced to retract and, yea, literally made to eat the words from this page.
To pray with non-Catholics is forbidden
These citations from the Scriptures, Saints and Councils demonstrate that prayer with non-Catholics is forbidden:
Are heretics and schismatics excommunicated? Yes; they have no part in the Communion of the Saints. (St. Thomas Aquinas, Catechism of the Summa)
If any ecclesiastic or layman shall go into the synagogue of the Jews or to the meeting-houses of the heretics to join in prayer with them, let them be excommunicated. If any bishop or priest or deacon shall join in prayer with heretics, let him be excommunicated (II Council of Constantinople)
That Christians and ecclesiastics should pray for Christian unity under the direction of heretics and, what is worse, according to an intention which is radically impregnated and vitiated with heresy, is absolutely impossible to tolerate! (Pope Pius IX)
One must neither pray nor sing psalms with heretics, and whoever shall communicate with those who are cut off from the communion of the Church, whether clergy or layman: let him be excommunicated. (Council of Carthage)
No one shall pray in common with heretics and schismatics. (Council of Laodicea)
I will not pray with you, nor shall you pray with me; neither will I say "Amen" to your prayers, nor shall you to mine! (St. Margaret Clitherow)
We decree that those who give credence to the teachings of the heretics, as well as those who receive, defend or patronize them, are excommunicated. [...] If anyone refuses to avoid such accomplices after they have been ostracized by the Church, let them also be excommunicated. (IV Lateran Council)
The following teachings demonstrate that interfaith unions are condemned:
To know whom to avoid is a great means of saving our souls. [...] Thus, the Church forbids the faithful to communicate with those unbelievers who have forsaken the faith by corrupting it, such as heretics, or by renouncing it, such as apostates. (St. Thomas Aquinas)
Thou shalt not sow thy vineyard with different seeds, lest both the seed that thou hast sown and the fruit of the vineyard be sanctified together. (Deut 22:9)
And the good seed are the children of the kingdom; and the cockle are the children of the wicked one. (St. Matthew 13:38)
Is it permitted for Christians to be present at, or to take part in, conventions, gatherings, meetings, or societies of non-Catholics which aim to associate together under a single agreement everyone who, in any way, lays claim to the name of Christian? It is not! [...] It is clear, therefore, why this Apostolic See has never allowed its subjects to take part in the assemblies of non-Catholics. There is only one way in which the unity of Christians may be fostered, and that is by furthering the return to the one true Church of Christ for those who are separated from her. (Pope Pius XI)
Those who are members of the Church are not to be permitted to go into the cemeteries of any of the heretics for the purpose of prayer or veneration. If they do, they are to be excommunicated. (Council of Laodicea)
Wherefore, since outside the Catholic Church there is nothing perfect, nothing undefiled, the Apostle declaring that "all that is not of faith is sin" (Romans 14:23), we are in no way likened with those who are divided from the unity of the Body of Christ; we are joined in no communion. (Pope St. Leo the Great)
Do not work together with unbelievers, for what does justice have in common with injustice? (II Cor 6:14)
There are some, you know, who are accustomed to go around with the Name [of Christ] on their lips while they indulge in certain practices at variance with It and an insult to God. You must shun these men as you would wild beasts: they are rabid dogs that bite in secret; you must beware of them! (St. Ignatius of Antioch)
Whoever is separated from the Church must be avoided and fled from; such a man is wrong-headed; he is a sinner and self-condemned. [...] But if some of the leaders of schism persist in their blind and obstinate foolishness, and if advice for their own good fails to bring them back to the way of salvation, let the rest of you [...] break away from their ensnaring falsehood. [...] One must withdraw from those who are engaged in sin; rather, one must fly from them, lest by joining in their evil course and thus taking the wrong road, one should [...] become involved in the same guilt oneself. (St. Cyprian, Church Father)
I will stop here, although I could continue on citing many more Catholic authorities almost ad infinitum. Such warnings abound in the annals of Holy Mother Church.
Objective reason must conclude that either the pre-Vatican II sources cited or the post-Vatican II sources cited are correct. To know the answer, we need only ask which is the Catholic Faith as it was first handed down to the Church by the Apostles and thereafter sacredly guarded by the Apostles' Successors, often even at the cost of martyrdom.
[Mark Stabinski, "The Shameful and Collaborative Silence of Traditionalists." I have informed Mr. Stabinski that I cannot in good conscience provide a hot link to his article as it is on a page of website that also includes a link to a truly atrocious article contending, quite blasphemously and replete with horrific history that is countered so well by Fathers Francisco and Dominic Radecki, CMRI, in Tumultuous Times, that an "erroneous teaching in the Church can contradict a correct one." As my wife dear wife noted, there is theologian who believed this to be so. His name was Father Martin Luther." Pope Pius IX condemned anyone who would dare to limit the infallibility of Holy Mother Church in Proposition 22 of The Syllabus of Errors: "The obligation by which Catholic teachers and authors are strictly bound is confined to those things only which are proposed to universal belief as dogmas of faith by the infallible judgment of the Church. -- Letter to the Archbishop of Munich, "Tuas libenter," Dec. 21, 1863. (Proposition condemned by Pope Pius IX, The Syllabus of Errors, December 8, 1864.)
No can remain in the bosom of the Catholic Church and make it appear as though false religions are pleasing to the true God of Revelation.
As repetition is the mother of learning, it is useful to point out that anyone who places even a drop of poison into the well of the Faith defects from It and is no longer a member of the Catholic Church:
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.)
Those who remain indifferent to or accepting of blasphemies and sacrileges committed against the honor and glory and majesty of God can no longer call themselves Catholics:
But it is vain for them to adopt the name of catholic, as they do not oppose these blasphemies: they must believe them, if they can listen so patiently to such words. (Pope Saint Leo the Great, Epistle XIV, To Anastasius, Bishop of Thessalonica, St. Leo the Great | Letters 1-59 )
Is Mount Hiei in Japan, where the Tendei sect of Buddhists worship their devils, "sacred" to the true God of Revelation? Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict thinks so. How can we listen so patiently to such words?
Would Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ have spoken these words about the Al-Hussein Bin Talal mosque in Amman, Jordan?
Places of worship, like this splendid Al-Hussein Bin Talal mosque named after the revered late King, stand out like jewels across the earth’s surface. From the ancient to the modern, the magnificent to the humble, they all point to the divine, to the Transcendent One, to the Almighty. And through the centuries these sanctuaries have drawn men and women into their sacred space to pause, to pray, to acknowledge the presence of the Almighty, and to recognize that we are all his creatures. (Meeting with Muslim religious leaders, members of the Diplomatic Corps and Rectors of universities in Jordan in front of the mosque al-Hussein bin Talal in Amman, Saturday, May 9, 2009.)
Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI spoke these words. Did he please the true God of Revelation when he did so? How can we listen so patiently to such words?
Would Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ have spoken these words about the mosque of the Dome of the Rock in the very city where He wrought our Redemption on the wood of the Holy Cross, Jerusalem?
I cordially thank the Grand Mufti, Muhammad Ahmad Hussein, together with the Director of the Jerusalem Islamic Waqf, Sheikh Mohammed Azzam al-Khatib al-Tamimi, and the Head of the Awquaf Council, Sheikh Abdel Azim Salhab, for the welcome they have extended to me on your behalf. I am deeply grateful for the invitation to visit this sacred place, and I willingly pay my respects to you and the leaders of the Islamic community in Jerusalem.
The Dome of the Rock draws our hearts and minds to reflect upon the mystery of creation and the faith of Abraham. Here the paths of the world’s three great monotheistic religions meet, reminding us what they share in common. Each believes in One God, creator and ruler of all. Each recognizes Abraham as a forefather, a man of faith upon whom God bestowed a special blessing. Each has gained a large following throughout the centuries and inspired a rich spiritual, intellectual and cultural patrimony.
In a world sadly torn by divisions, this sacred place serves as a stimulus, and also challenges men and women of goodwill to work to overcome misunderstandings and conflicts of the past and to set out on the path of a sincere dialogue aimed at building a world of justice and peace for coming generations. (Courtesy visit to the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem at the Mount of the Temple, May 12, 2009).
Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI spoke these words. Did he please the true God of Revelation when he did so? How can we listen so patiently to such words?
Would Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ have prayed in front of the remnant of a wall at the very Temple that was destroyed as a final and most public testimony of the Most Blessed Trinity on the fact that Temple worship had come to an end and no longer had the power to save anyone, no less to pray in a manner that would deny His own Sacred Divinity?
God of all the ages,
on my visit to Jerusalem, the “City of Peace”,
spiritual home to Jews, Christians and Muslims alike,
I bring before you the joys, the hopes and the aspirations,
the trials, the suffering and the pain of all your people throughout the world.
God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob,
hear the cry of the afflicted, the fearful, the bereft;
send your peace upon this Holy Land, upon the Middle East,
upon the entire human family;
stir the hearts of all who call upon your name,
to walk humbly in the path of justice and compassion.
“The Lord is good to those who wait for him,
to the soul that seeks him” (Lam 3:25)! (Prayer at the Western Wall, May 12, 2009.)
Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI did so. Did he please the true God of Revelation when he did so? How can we listen so patiently to such words?
Most Catholics today, sadly, do listen patiently to such words. I know. I was among their ranks for far, far too long as I listened silently to Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II blaspheme God before I began the absurd exercise of criticizing a man I believed to be a true Successor of Saint Peter, refusing to recognize that a true pope can never speak and act in ways that give credibility to false religions.
Most Catholics have become so accustomed to the apostate deportment of the counterfeit church of conciliarism and its "popes" that they believe that such statements are actually indicative of "charity" and "toleration" for a "diversity" in a "search for truth" rather than hideous offenses against God that millions upon millions of Catholics throughout the history of the Church preferred death than to even give the impression of believing and acting by their own words and deeds. Most Catholics have come to believe that "it is no big deal" for men who consider themselves, albeit falsely, "popes" to embrace the very Judeo-Masonic spirit that was described so succinctly by Pope Leo XIII in Custodi di Quella Fede, December 8, 1892:
Everyone should avoid familiarity or friendship with anyone suspected of belonging to masonry or to affiliated groups. Know them by their fruits and avoid them. Every familiarity should be avoided, not only with those impious libertines who openly promote the character of the sect, but also with those who hide under the mask of universal tolerance, respect for all religions, and the craving to reconcile the maxims of the Gospel with those of the revolution. These men seek to reconcile Christ and Belial, the Church of God and the state without God. (Pope Leo XIII, Custodi di Quella Fede, December 8, 1892.)
Apart from "The Nine" and the other courageous priests I mentioned in Embracing The Faith No Matter the Consequences, there were more than a handful of lay Catholics back in the 1960s and 1970s who refused to accept any liturgical or doctrinal compromises with the Catholic Faith. Most of us just went along, sometimes getting angry, refusing to recognize that no liturgical service of the Catholic Church and no sermon delivered by a Catholic priest is supposed to make us "angry" as we attempted to bury our heads in the sand and resisted the truth that Holy Mother Church is as spotless and as immaculate as Our Blessed Mother, that she, Holy Mother Church, can never make us angry or sad by means of the rubrics contained in her approved liturgical rites or by means of falsehoods preached from the pulpit that are either approved or tolerated by alleged ecclesiastical officials.
One of these members of the laity who refused to accept error as truth was the late Mrs. Anne Bernadette Redmond McMahon, the mother of Father Denis McMahon.
Father McMahon preached at the conclusion of her Requiem Mass at Saint Gertrude the Great Church yesterday, Pentecost Tuesday, June 2, 2009, about a true story, which occurred when he was a young boy, concerning how a priest, a fellow sporting a beard and looking like a "hippie," preached from the pulpit of the Church of the Resurrection (which, it appears, is in Brooklyn, New York, across Long Island Sound from my beloved Oyster Bay) that, "It is not Transubstantiation, it is 'transignification. Our Lord is only symbolically present in the Eucharist."
Father McMahon, pointing to his late mother's coffin and raising his voice with great and thunderous emphasis, said, "This solider of Christ the King got up from the pew and told us children that we were leaving." And leave they did.
Mrs. McMahon then went to the rectory door, where she was greeted by the pastor, a monsignor in the Archdiocese of New York. Father McMahon said that the following exchange took place:
"It's transignification, not Transubstantiation. Our Lord is only symbolically present in the Eucharist."
"What?" exclaimed the startled pastor. "What?"
"That's what's being preached from the pulpit in your church right now."
Father McMahon explained that the wind came out of the monsignor as though a pin had been stick into a balloon. There was nothing he could say. More accurately, of course, there was nothing that he would say about the apostasy that was being preached from the pulpit of the church whose parish had been entrusted to his own pastoral care. (This summary does not do justice to Father McMahon's sermon. Please watch the Requiem Mass at St Gertrude the Great 06/02/09.)
And thus it is with so many Catholics today, clergy and laity alike, who are as of yet attached to the structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism. They choose to say nothing as the honor and majesty and glory of God are blasphemed publicly by man who has been
at war with Catholicism his entire priestly life. They choose to act as though they do not have a direct and personal responsibility to defend the honor and majesty and glory of God by means of their words and actions.
Mrs. Ann McMahon, her son noted yesterday, rose up for the love of Most Holy Trinity: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost. God the Son, the exact representation of the Father's being, sought to do only that which the Father willed, including becoming Man in Our Lady's Virginal and Immaculate Womb and dying on the wood of the Cross to redeem the rational creatures that had been created through Him. The breath of the mutual love between the Father and His Co-Eternal and Co-Equal Son brought forth God the Holy Ghost. And it was for love of this incredible God, the one and only true God of Revelation, that the widowed mother of ten children, Mrs. Ann McMahon, rose up to oppose apostasy when she heard it with her own ears.
It must be no different with us.
We must, for love of this incredible God, the true God of Revelation, the Most Holy Trinity, never be open to strange gods as the conciliar "popes" have been and continue to be right in front of our very eyes. We must, for love of this incredible god, the true God of Revelation, the Most Holy Trinity, denounce blasphemy and sacrilege and apostasy as we flee from everything to do with a "religion" that can sanction the sort of deportment that millions of the Catholic Church's martyrs refused in the full knowledge that they would, by so refusing, be forfeiting their earthly lives so as to provide with the seed of their own blood.
How can any Catholic remain silent when the man who believes himself to be the "pope" call a mosque "sacred"?
How can any Catholic remain silent when the man who believes himself to be the "pope" treats false religions and valid and speaks of their "ability" to "build" the "better world"?
How can any Catholic remain silent when the man who believes himself to be the "pope" prays as a Jew at the wall of Temple destroyed as a result of the very punishment inflicted by Our Lord Himself on Jewish infidelity during His life on earth and obstinacy in the face of over thirty-seven years' of the preaching of the Gospel after His Ascension in to Heaven and the descent of God the Holy Ghost upon the Apostles and our dear Blessed Mother on Pentecost Sunday?
How can any Catholic remain silent when the man who believes himself to be the "pope" esteems the symbols of false religions with his own priestly hands, as occurred at the John Paul II Cultural Center in Washington, D.C., on Thursday, April 17, 2008?
How can any Catholic remain silent when the man who believes himself to the "pope" can sit quietly as Talmudic hymns are sung that deny the Sacred Divinity of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ as "hope" is expressed that the Messiah will come one day?
How can any Catholic remain silent when the man who believes himself to be, albeit falsely, a true Successor of Saint Peter on earth refuses to do what Saint Peter himself did on the first Pentecost Sunday, exhort Jews to convert to the true Faith?
How can any Catholic remain silent when the man who believes himself to be the "pope" refuses to exhibit the zeal for souls of a Saint Vincent Ferrer, O.P., who sought the unconditional conversion of Jews and Mohammedans to the true Faith in his own day at the end of the Fourteenth and the beginning of the Fifteenth Centuries?
Men like "Father" John Jenkins and "Archbishop" Robert Zollitsch make nice targets to criticize for their words and actions. Catholics must come to recognize that the problem is with conciliarism itself, a false religion that is as abominable in the sight of God as any and every other false religion, a false religion whose "popes" are blithe in their treatment of other false religions, thereby communicating to Catholics and non-Catholics alike that it does not, at least on a practical level, make any difference what one believes as long as we practice what the Catholic Church forbids: inter-religious dialogue (called "obstinate wrangling" by Pope Pius XI in Mortalium Animos, January 6, 1928) and inter-religious "prayer" services and everything else to do with the false ecumenism that is at the heart of the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo service.
We must, for love of the true God of Revelation, the Most Holy Trinity, flee from the profane, abominable liturgies and the false doctrines and blasphemies and the sacrileges of the counterfeit church of conciliarism, entrusting our souls exclusively only to those true bishops and priests in the Catholic underground who make no concessions to conciliarism or its false shepherds whatsoever.
A widowed mother of ten, Mrs. Anne Bernadette Redmond McMahon, had this courage decades ago now to stand up for the love of God. What's wrong with us?
What's wrong with us is that we are sinners, of course. Each sin we commit darkens the intellect and weakens the will. We prefer to live in the comfort of fairy tales and delusions rather than to face the truth about ourselves and our need for making reparation for our sins to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary. We prefer the comfort of human respect and "safety" and "respectability" rather than to share in the ignominy of Our Crucified Saviour, Whose Most Sacred Heart was pierced with a lance and poured out Blood and Water, the very sacramental elements of the Church that was born on Pentecost Sunday.
The time for such comfort and delusion and fairy tales has long since passed. We cannot be silent in the face of outrages committed against the honor and glory and love of God by the conciliar "popes." We must for love of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus as the consecrated slaves of His Most Blessed Mother's Immaculate Heart give the Most Holy Trinity our all, including whatever calumnies that come our way by stating that anyone who can esteem a false religion publicly is an enemy of Christ the King and of the souls for whom He shed every single drop of His Most Precious Blood on the wood of the Holy Cross.
We need to beg Our Lady to send us the graces won for us by her Divine Son by the shedding of every single drop of His Most Precious Blood on the wood of the Holy Cross so that we can be courageous enough to eschew all human respect for the love and honor and glory of God, recognizing that the Catholic Church and none of her true popes can ever give us anything that places in doubt the integrity of the First Commandment by being open at all times to strange "gods" that are, of course, nothing other than devils.
Isn't it time to pray a Rosary now?
Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon!
Vivat Christus Rex! Viva Cristo Rey!
Saint Joseph, pray for us.
Saints Peter and Paul, pray for us.
