"And They That Passed By Blasphemed Him"

by Thomas A. Droleskey


And the inscription of his cause was written over: THE KING OF THE JEWS. And with him they crucify two thieves; the one on his right hand, and the other on his left. And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith: And with the wicked he was reputed. And they that passed by blasphemed him, wagging their heads, and saying: Vah, thou that destroyest the temple of God, and in three days buildest it up again; Save thyself, coming down from the cross.

In like manner also the chief priests mocking, said with the scribes one to another: He saved others; himself he cannot save. Let Christ the king of Israel come down now from the cross, that we may see and believe. And they that were crucified with him reviled him. (Mark 15: 26-32)


Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ is indeed being mocked by chief priests today, starting with Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, who has dared to offend God grievously by esteeming with his own priestly hands the symbols of false religions, who has dared to enter two synagogues and one mosque, who is daring to enter two more synagogues in Israel and the one in Rome in the coming months. Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI is spitting on Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ each time he does these things, which are, each and every single one of them, objectively speaking, Mortal Sins against the First Commandment. Anyone who denies that entering into and treating with respect places of false worship without seeking the unconditional conversion of those adhere the devils worshiped therein is intellectual dishonest or bereft of the sensus Catholicus (thereby lacking any knowledge of the necessity of defending the honor and glory and majesty of the Most Blessed Trinity) or is a coward who is afraid to speak to the truth of the Faith for one reason or another.

God will not be mocked. The God of Revelation does not want members of the Catholic Church, no less those who believe themselves to be bishops and priests, to give even the slightest degree of credibility to any false religion. The God of Revelation, which consists of Sacred Scripture and Sacred (Apostolic) Tradition, hates each and every false religion. He has no respect for false religions, which have the power to save no one and are instruments of disorder in souls and thus of disorder and chaos within nations. Those who show respect for false religions by esteeming their symbols and praising their nonexistent "ability" to contribute to the "betterment" of nations and the world are themselves enemies of God as they find themselves condemned by these very words e of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ Himself:

But he that shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone should be hanged about his neck, and that he should be drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe to the world because of scandals. For it must needs be that scandals come: but nevertheless woe to that man by whom the scandal cometh. And if thy hand, or thy foot scandalize thee, cut it off, and cast it from thee. It is better for thee to go into life maimed or lame, than having two hands or two feet, to be cast into everlasting fire. And if thy eye scandalize thee, pluck it out, and cast it from thee. It is better for thee having one eye to enter into life, than having two eyes to be cast into hell fire. See that you despise not one of these little ones: for I say to you, that their angels in heaven always see the face of my Father who is in heaven. (Matthew 18: 6-10.)


It is a scandal for a man thought, albeit erroneously, by 99.9999% of the people in the world to be the Vicar of Christ on earth, the Successor of Saint Peter, the Visible Head of the true Church on earth, to enter into a synagogue and to listen without complain to a Talmudic hymn speaking of the "waiting" for the Messiah as he is treated as an inferior.

It is a scandal for a man thought, albeit erroneously, by 99.9999% of the people in the world to be the Vicar of Christ on earth, the Successor of Saint Peter, the Visible Head of the true Church on earth, to take off his shoes and then enter into a Mohammedan mosque, assuming the Mohammedan "prayer" position as he turns in the direction of Mecca.

It is a scandal for a man thought, albeit erroneously, by 99.9999% of the people in the world to be the Vicar of Christ on earth, the Successor of Saint Peter, the Visible Head of the true Church on earth, to refer a mountain in Japan, Mount Hiei, upon which the Tendei sect of Buddhism worship their devils,

It is a scandal for a man thought, albeit erroneously, by 99.9999% of the people in the world to be the Vicar of Christ on earth, the Successor of Saint Peter, the Visible Head of the true Church on earth, to praise a false religion, voodoo, as Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II did in Benin on February 6, 1993:

You have a strong attachment to the traditions handed on by your ancestors. It is legitimate to be grateful to your forbears who passed on this sense of the sacred, belief in a single God who is good, a sense of celebration, esteem for the moral life and for harmony in society. (First section of Voodoo You Trust.)


It is a scandal for a man thought, albeit erroneously, by 99.9999% of the people in the world to be the Vicar of Christ on earth, the Successor of Saint Peter, the Visible Head of the true Church on earth, to ignore these words of Sacred Scripture, written under the inspiration of the Third Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, God the Holy Ghost, as he esteems the symbols and even the essential "goodness" of false religions:

Or, that the idol is any thing? But the things which the heathens sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God. And I would not that you should be made partakers with devils.

You cannot drink the chalice of the Lord, and the chalice of devils: you cannot be partakers of the table of the Lord, and of the table of devils. Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than he?  (1 Cor. 10: 19-22.)


There are priests, some truly ordained and others not, in the structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism who know these things to be true. Some even know that the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo service is evil. These men know that the nature of dogmatic truth cannot be explained away by the absurd and dogmatically condemned thesis contained in Ratzinger/Benedict's "hermeneutic of continuity and discontinuity." They know that the conciliar "popes" have abandoned the Catholic Church's mission to seek with urgency the unconditional conversion of all men to her maternal bosom. They know that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ is meant to reign as the King over men and over nations. Some even doubt the legitimacy of their ordination to the priesthood (there is one man who had himself ordained by the retired bishop of his diocese the day before his conciliar "installation" service, others, including a chancery official of a small diocese, from what I have been told by an eyewitness, were conditionally "ordained" by a priest who claimed that he had been consecrated a bishop secretly years before).

Most of these men, however, are content to keep their mouths shut about the apostasies and sacrileges and blasphemies that they see emanating from the Vatican and their local chancery office, rationalizing away their own participation in sacrilege by continuing to "offer" a liturgy that know is, at the very least, deficient and thus offensive to the Most Holy Trinity. Unable to break free from human respect or worries about financial stability or a number of other highly subjective reasons, these men stay in the conciliar structures without ever uttering a word in defense of the honor and majesty and glory of God that have been so offended by the conciliar "popes" and the conciliar "bishops."

The words these priests utter in private about the horrors of the day remain in private. The faithful who look to them for their spiritual nourishment unto salvation never hear these men castigate false ecumenism or religious liberty or separation of Church and State or the incorporation of pagan rituals into conciliar-sponsored liturgies. The faithful never hear these putative priests excoriate the Novus Ordo and its profanities in such terms as the "FM" (Faux Mass, FreeMasonic Mass) or hear the sarcasm that drips from their lips when they refer to "Paul the Sick," "Giovanni Paolo Seconda Il Grande Frode," "Papa Rat." They never hear the private reactions to such things as altar girls (one fairly prominent conservative presbyter said to me in 1994, "Tom, I am praying to Saint Joseph for a happy and quick death for this man [John Paul II]).

Well, on second thought, this is not entirely correct. One true priest who was in my acquaintance for quite a while, used to telephone the host of a radio program, using a false name as he played the "role" of a woman who had a son who was married to a "Jewess" and whose daughter was in a "Modernist convent" and who railed about "the Jews" being responsible for the problems of the world. The act was so popular that the hosts of the radio program produced a compact disk (cd) featuring the "best" of this "woman's" phone calls to them. The "act" was very funny. It was also a sign of how little the priest was willing to say in public, how he had to take "cover" under the guise of a make-believe character to gve public voice to a caricature of his private thoughts.

Apart from such instances, however, most of the the faithful yet attached to the conciliar structures will never never hear the discontent, the questions, the sarcasm, the mockery or the outright rejection of conciliarism from those conciliar priests who have convinced themselves that the line popularized by William Szathmary (better known as Bill Dana) in his "Jose Jiminez" character, first created for The Steve Allen Show over fifty years ago now, "Ees not my job, man," exculpates them from ever uttering a word publicly about things that they know--and sometimes admit to friends privately--are offensive to God and thus harmful to the souls who look to them for the supernatural helps that they need to get home to Heaven. These men are content to watch as the conciliar "popes" and their "bishops" mock Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ as His Church Militant on earth undergoes her Mystical Passion, Death and Burial.

This mockery from the conciliar "popes" and "bishops" is constant. It is unremitting. It cries out to Heaven for vengeance. Forty years of conciliar mockery produced by false ecumenism and inter-religious "dialogue" and inter-religious "prayer" service and profane, blasphemous liturgies have robbed most Catholics of their sensus Catholicus. Most Catholics are awash in the illogic of sentimentality and emotionalism. Some might close their eyes to things that bother them in the hope that what they see are merely aberrations that do not reflect on the essence of conciliarism itself, an attitude that I know from first-hand experience leads to blaming the bad "bishops" for travesties that are indeed of the essence of conciliarism and that have the full approval and "blessing" of the conciliar "popes." It is thus difficult for the average Catholic to find fault with a "pope" who goes to a mosque or to a synagogue or who asks the non-"archbishop" of Canterbury to join him in giving a "joint blessing" to the faithful.

The average Catholic is quite selective about what he wants to hear and believe. They do not want to believe that "pope" sold out the long-suffering Catholics of the underground church in Red China two years ago as many of us noted at the time (A Betrayal Worthy of the Antichrist) and others have documented after nearly two years of continued persecution of these Catholics by the Communist authorities with whom Ratzinger/Benedict seeks a full "reconciliation" (China’s Underground Church: Anguish and Dismay over Vatican Betrayal). They do not want to believe that "pope" seeks to neutralize the Society of Saint Pius X and other traditionally-minded Catholics even though he, Ratzinger/Benedict has said that it is his goal to do so:

So if the arduous task of working for faith, hope and love in the world is presently (and, in various ways, always) the Church's real priority, then part of this is also made up of acts of reconciliation, small and not so small. That the quiet gesture of extending a hand gave rise to a huge uproar, and thus became exactly the opposite of a gesture of reconciliation, is a fact which we must accept. But I ask now: Was it, and is it, truly wrong in this case to meet half-way the brother who 'has something against you' and to seek reconciliation? Should not civil society also try to forestall forms of extremism and to incorporate their eventual adherents - to the extent possible - in the great currents shaping social life, and thus avoid their being segregated, with all its consequences? Can it be completely mistaken to work to break down obstinacy and narrowness, and to make space for what is positive and retrievable for the whole? I myself saw, in the years after 1988, how the return of communities which had been separated from Rome changed their interior attitudes; I saw how returning to the bigger and broader Church enabled them to move beyond one-sided positions and broke down rigidity so that positive energies could emerge for the whole. Can we be totally indifferent about a community which has 491 priests, 215 seminarians, 6 seminaries, 88 schools, 2 university-level institutes, 117 religious brothers, 164 religious sisters and thousands of lay faithful? Should we casually let them drift farther from the Church? I think for example of the 491 priests. We cannot know how mixed their motives may be. All the same, I do not think that they would have chosen the priesthood if, alongside various distorted and unhealthy elements, they did not have a love for Christ and a desire to proclaim Him and, with Him, the living God. Can we simply exclude them, as representatives of a radical fringe, from our pursuit of reconciliation and unity? What would then become of them?

"Certainly, for some time now, and once again on this specific occasion, we have heard from some representatives of that community many unpleasant things - arrogance and presumptuousness, an obsession with one-sided positions, etc. Yet to tell the truth, I must add that I have also received a number of touching testimonials of gratitude which clearly showed an openness of heart. But should not the great Church also allow herself to be generous in the knowledge of her great breadth, in the knowledge of the promise made to her? Should not we, as good educators, also be capable of overlooking various faults and making every effort to open up broader vistas? And should we not admit that some unpleasant things have also emerged in Church circles? At times one gets the impression that our society needs to have at least one group to which no tolerance may be shown; which one can easily attack and hate. And should someone dare to approach them - in this case the Pope - he too loses any right to tolerance; he too can be treated hatefully, without misgiving or restraint. (LETTER ON REMISSION OF EXCOMMUNICATION LEFEBVRE BISHOP)


Those who desire "full communion" with Ratzinger/Benedict have to be very, very selective to ignore the brutal honesty he displayed when explaining to his conciliar "bishops" why he had "lifted" the "excommunications" from the four bishops of the Society of Saint Pius X. Bishop Bernard Fellay, the Superior-General of the Society of Saint Pius X, has learned this method of selectivity rather well, choosing to ignore entirely Ratzinger/Benedict's use of the words "extremism," "obstinacy," "narrowness," "one-sided positions, "rigidity," "arrogance and presumptuousness" to describe the attitudes of the members of the Society of Saint Pius X. One will see in Bishop Fellay's "communique" (Bishop Fellay's Response to Ratzinger's letter) in response to Ratzinger/Benedict's "explanatory letter" that he has learned very well how to become a clone of Bishop Fernando Areas Rifan. It will not be long before Bishop Fellay himself uses the words "extremism," "obstinacy," "narrowness," "one-sided positions, "rigidity," "arrogance and presumptuousness" to describe members of the Society of Saint Pius X, whether priests or laity, who oppose his "reconciliation" with and total assumption into the One World Ecumenical Church of conciliarism.

What will Bishop Fellay do with priests in the Society of Saint Pius X who call the Novus Ordo "poisonous?" I know of one such priest who was instrumental in convincing a priest in the conciliar structures to stop offering what he called "that poisonous Mass" six years ago now. What will happen to Society priests who call the Novus Ordo what it is, that is, poisonous? Indeed, what will happen to those priests who have left the diocesan structures to join up with the Society because they recognized the Novus Ordo to be poisonous and because of the conciliarists' belief concerning "Jews and their supposedly viable covenant"? Will these priests have to re-learn how to be as silent in a "reconciled" Society of Saint Pius X as they were in the structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism as they offended God every day by presiding over the Novus Ordo with all of the laity in the sanctuary and mariachis and guitars and the prayers that never speak of sin and God's judgment on our immortal souls and the need for external acts of penance?

Unlike Bishop Fellay and unlike the priests in the structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism who have convinced themselves that it is possible to live in a schizophrenic world wherein they can be "personally opposed" to conciliarism without seeking to "impose" their "private" beliefs upon anyone else, Father Basil Meramo, until recently the Prior of the Society of Saint Pius X in Orizaba, Vera Cruz, Mexico, understands that Catholics have an obligation to oppose the falsehoods of the "Second" Vatican Council and the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo service. His courageous words stand in stark contrast with the intellectual dishonesty of Bishop Fellay, whose attitude at this time could make him the Superior General of the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter.

Father Meramo gave a sermon in Mexico on February 2, 2009, the Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary, that has been translated into English by Mr. Atila S. Guimaraes of the Tradition in Action site. A portion of that letter is excerpted here in order to demonstrate that a priest is supposed to stand four-square with Christ the King without fearing the consequences of his doing so (and Father Meramo was removed as the Prior of Orizaba as a result of this very sermon), quite a contrast with those in the ranks of the conciliar priesthood, quite a contrast with Bishop Fellay himself and the double-speak that is meant to surrender as many Society members as possible to Ratzinger/Benedict once the "negotiations" are concluded successfully (see Nothing to Negotiate):

A Storm in the Church

This same reproach is valid for us, dear brethren. The one who has the knowledge and the wisdom to steer the boat of the Church is Christ. Even when to me she seems to be at the point of shipwreck, I must not fear, and even less to compromise with the enemy moved by fear. “Men of little faith!”

Benedict goes to New York Synagogue in April 2008

Our Lord does not want us to be men of little faith or cowards, for cowardice comes from a lack of virility, be it natural or supernatural. Lack of faith is typical of a coward. It is proper for virtue to grow in difficult times and not to diminish, become fearful or retreat. The brave soldier goes to war to win or die, not to retreat – this is betrayal.

This is also happing inside the Church: there are very few men who are truly men in the Church! Men were lacking at Vatican Council II. If only one cardinal had stood up and strongly indicted the heresies and errors of Vatican II, declaring them publicly to be such, he would have made the world tremble. But that man was not there. There are many people who see and know, but who dares to oppose the powers that be? Here is the difficulty: the lack of virility and faith. And because of this, things are happening, beloved brethren, in the Church and, unfortunately, also in Traditionalism, and unfortunately also in the Society.

This letter that I wrote (1) can cost me my skin (…) but I cannot accept that, instead of seeing things as they are, (…) a person would say that this [accord] was made thanks to the blessing of the Most Holy Virgin Mary. And if Bishop Fellay dares to say this, I summon him before God to be chastised by the Most Holy Virgin Mary for using her holy name in such a falsehood. If I am mistaken, I ask that chastisement to fall on me. I cannot be clearer. Bread is bread and wine is wine. Here there is one selling out the Church, selling out the Society, selling out me and you, but I won’t allow anyone to sell me out or to buy me. (…)

Benedict goes to the UN

This problem is taking place with the General Superior (of the Society of St. Pius X) (…) who is selling out the Society by allying himself with the Vatican, which has not stepped back in anything. Where does Benedict XVI go? He goes to the Synagogue, he goes to the United Nations, and now he goes to the Society (SSPX) – another concubine in the pantheon of false religions.

This is not admissible. This is a tactic of Rome. I want you to know, dear brethren, that Rome of the Roman Empire was able to dominate the world by means of religious compromises. This is why Rome had a pantheon with all the principal gods of the important peoples who were subjugated by it. Since religious alliances were established and Rome had the same gods of the enemies, then there were no mutual attacks. Rome accepted the same gods of the Greeks in order to dominate the Greeks; Rome adopted the same gods of this or that people in order to dominate them. This was its tactic to govern.

This same tactic continues today in that Rome, which St. Peter - the first Pope of the Church - called Babylon. He was not in the Middle East; he was in Rome and he called it Babylon because it was the Babylon of the religions. He didn’t spare words, because it had an altar to every god. All known religions had their representatives there. (…) A Pope quoted in the Breviary – whose name I don't remember at this moment – said that at the end [of history] Rome will again have, as in the beginning, all the religions. It will return to its ancient paganism, rejoicing in hosting all religions. It will return to its old religious prostitution.

F029_BlueMosque.jpg - 72900 Bytes

Benedict goes to pray in the Blue Mosque in Turkey

This is what we are witnessing today. And now they need Traditionalism to also be there with its rights – just like the Muslims or the Adventists have rights – but not the real rights of Tradition. (…)

This is why Benedict XVI went to the UN. What do you think he was doing there? He had nothing to do as a Catholic. So things go… So the kings and presidents of this world go. So goes religion riding the Beast. The woman in scarlet, the great harlot as the Apocalypse says. Don’t be scandalized at this because the Bible speaks very plain language and sometimes our effeminate ears are scandalized to hear the truth. But they are not scandalized to see all the pornography they see day and night on the Internet, TVs, movies, spectacles and fashions. They are not scandalized, yet they will warn you: “Be careful about the sermon of Fr. Basilio when he uses the expression great harlot.” This is the scandal of Pharisees.

So this woman goes about in her scarlet dress, like the prelates who wear purple and the cardinals wear red – the color of royalty, nobility. She rides the Beast fornicating with all the kings of the world. So religion goes.

And into this adulterous and apostate cohabitation, they want to incorporate the Society (SSPX) founded by Msgr. Lefebvre. But I, as a member of the Society – which will always be my family whether they expel me or not - I publicly, officially and until death oppose this cohabitation. And if one day I will cease to oppose it, is because I will be dead. I would desire this for continuing to say what I am saying, for if this happens, there would be another saint-martyr. I nourish this desire because so I would go straight to Heaven, without stopping in Purgatory. God be praised [should this happen]!  (A Bold Show of Dissatisfaction in the SSPX Ranks;  please read Father Meramo's remarks in their entirety; the Tradition in Action website has also published and English translation of Father Meramo's January 26, 2009, "open letter" to Bishop Fellay, Fellay’s Decision to Merge Confronted by Intellectual Priest. These letters have been censored by the Society of Saint Pius X hierarchy. Please circulate them widely to your friends who are as of yet attached to the conciliar structures by means of the falsehoods propagated by the Society of Saint Pius X about the nature of the Church and her infallibility.)

Where are the likes of Father Meramo in the ranks of the conciliar priesthood?

Where are the likes of Father Meramo in the ranks of the Motu communities?

They are almost nowhere to be found. (Stay tuned for yet another article on this subject.)

Men who believe themselves to be validly ordained to the Priesthood and Victimhood of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ refuse to make themselves victims in defense of the Deposit of Faith that He has entrusted exclusively to the Catholic Church for Its eternal safekeeping and infallible explication.

Most of these men are deaf, dumb and blind when the man whose name they mention in the "Eucharistic Prayer" of the Novus Ordo or the Canon of the Mass in the modernized version of the Immemorial Mass of Tradition denies the Catholic Faith very openly, as Ratzinger/Benedict did on the Feast of Pope Saint Gregory the Great, Thursday, March 12, 2009, as he addressed a delegation of the Chief Rabbinate of Israel:

It gives me great pleasure to welcome you, the delegation of the Chief Rabbinate of Israel, together with Catholic participants led by the Holy See's Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews. The important dialogue in which you are engaged is a fruit of the historical visit of my beloved predecessor Pope John Paul II to the Holy Land in March 2000. It was his wish to enter into a dialogue with Jewish religious institutions in Israel and his encouragement was decisive to attaining this goal. Receiving the two Chief Rabbis of Israel in January 2004 he called this dialogue a "sign of great hope”.

During these seven years not only has the friendship between the Commission and the Chief Rabbinate increased, but you have also been able to reflect on important themes which are relevant to the Jewish and Christian traditions alike. Because we recognize a common rich spiritual patrimony a dialogue based on mutual understanding and respect is, as Nostra Aetate (n. 4) recommends, necessary and possible.

Working together you have become increasingly aware of the common values which stand at the basis of our respective religious traditions, studying them during the seven meetings held either here in Rome or in Jerusalem. You have reflected on the sanctity of life, family values, social justice and ethical conduct, the importance of the word of God expressed in Holy Scriptures for society and education, the relationship between religious and civil authority and the freedom of religion and conscience. In the common declarations released after every meeting, the views which are rooted in both our respective religious convictions have been highlighted, while the differences of understanding have also been acknowledged. The Church recognizes that the beginnings of her faith are found in the historical divine intervention in the life of the Jewish people and that here our unique relationship has its foundation. The Jewish people, who were chosen as the elected people, communicate to the whole human family, knowledge of and fidelity to the one, unique and true God. Christians gladly acknowledge that their own roots are found in the same self-revelation of God, in which the religious experience of the Jewish people is nourished.

As you know, I am preparing to visit the Holy Land as a pilgrim. My intention is to pray especially for the precious gift of unity and peace both within the region and for the worldwide human family. As Psalm 125 brings to mind, God protects his people: "As the mountains are round about Jerusalem, so the Lord is round about his people, from this time forth and for evermore". May my visit also help to deepen the dialogue of the Church with the Jewish people so that Jews and Christians and also Muslims may live in peace and harmony in this Holy Land.

I thank you for your visit and I renew my personal commitment to advancing the vision set out for coming generations in the Second Vatican Council's declaration Nostra Aetate.  (To the delegation of the Chief Rabbinate of Israel and of the Holy See's Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews, March 12, 2009.)


Please note that Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI used the present, not the past, tense when he said the following:

The Jewish people, who were chosen as the elected people, communicate to the whole human family, knowledge of and fidelity to the one, unique and true God. Christians gladly acknowledge that their own roots are found in the same self-revelation of God, in which the religious experience of the Jewish people is nourished.


"The Jewish people...communicate to the whole human family, knowledge of and fidelity to the one, unique and true God"? This is apostasy. The Jewish people communicate infidelity to "the one, unique and true God," the Most Blessed Trinity, by refusing to acknowledge the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity made Man in His Blessed Mother's Virginal and Immaculate Womb by the power of God the Holy Ghost to be the Divine Redeemer. Their "religious experience" is "nourished" by the blasphemous Talmud. Their religion is false. It is odious in the sight of God, Who desires the conversion of each and every adherent of the Talmud to the true Faith before they die.

Did Saint Peter, the first pope, reaffirm his fellow Jews in their false, superseded religion on the first Pentecost Sunday when he gave the first papal discourse?

Was Saint Stephen content to leave his fellow Jews in their false, superseded religion when he preferred death to denying the Sacred Divinity of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ?

Was Saint Vincent Ferrer wrong to seek with urgency the conversion of thousands upon thousands of Jews and Mohammedans to the true Faith in southern France and throughout the Iberian Peninsula?

Was the Mother of God herself wrong to seek the conversion of the Catholic-hating Jew named Alphonse Ratisbonne when she appeared to him on January 20, 1842, in the Church of San Andrea delle Fratte in Rome, Italy, as she appears on the Miraculous Medal?

Was Saint John Chrysostom wrong when he spoke these words in the Fifth Century A.D.?

Many, I know, respect the Jews and think that their present way of life is a venerable one. This is why I hasten to uproot and tear out this deadly opinion. I said that the synagogue is no better than a theater and I bring forward a prophet as my witness. Surely the Jews are not more deserving of belief than their prophets. "You had a harlot's brow; you became shameless before all". Where a harlot has set herself up, that place is a brothel. But the synagogue is not only a brothel and a theater; it also is a den of robbers and a lodging for wild beasts. Jeremiah said: "Your house has become for me the den of a hyena". He does not simply say "of wild beast", but "of a filthy wild beast", and again: "I have abandoned my house, I have cast off my inheritance". But when God forsakes a people, what hope of salvation is left? When God forsakes a place, that place becomes the dwelling of demons.

(2) But at any rate the Jews say that they, too, adore God. God forbid that I say that. No Jew adores God! Who says so? The Son of God says so. For he said: "If you were to know my Father, you would also know me. But you neither know me nor do you know my Father". Could I produce a witness more trustworthy than the Son of God?

(3) If, then, the Jews fail to know the Father, if they crucified the Son, if they thrust off the help of the Spirit, who should not make bold to declare plainly that the synagogue is a dwelling of demons? God is not worshipped there. Heaven forbid! From now on it remains a place of idolatry. But still some people pay it honor as a holy place. (Saint John Chrysostom: Eight Homilies Against the Jews)


Who says the Jew adores God? Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, that's who. Who says that God is worshiped in the synagogue? Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, that's who. Who pays the synagogue "honor as a holy place"? Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, that's who.

Saint John Chrysostom had a word or two for those in the priesthood in the conciliar structures (diocesan and Motu) who know that Ratzinger/Benedict's words and actions betray the Faith (and the eternal good of non-Catholics, including Jews) but who refuse to speak out against such heresy and blasphemy and break once and for all from the false church that dares to reaffirm people in false religions time and time again:

Do not think, then, that you are doing your brothers a favor if you should see them pursuing some absurdity and should fail to accuse them with all zeal. If you lose a cloak, do you not consider as your foe not only the one who stole it but also the man who knew of the theft and refused to denounce the thief? Our common Mother (the Church) has lost not a cloak but a brother. The devil stole him and now holds him in Judaism. You know who stole him; you know him who was stolen. Do you see me lighting, as it were, the lamp of my instruction and searching everywhere in my grief? And do you stand silent, refusing to denounce him? What excuse will you have? Will the Church not reckon you among her worst enemies? Will she not consider you a foe and destroyer?  (Saint John Chrysostom: Eight Homilies Against the Jews)


These are words for men in the diocesan priesthood and the Motu communities to consider. Is Ratzinger/Benedict right to praise Judaism? If he is not, then how can you remain silent? What do you want? To collect your paychecks. To become a non-bishop in the conciliar structures? To keep your health insurance benefits? What do you want? It is certainly not fidelity to the Catholic Faith. Saint John Chrysostom accuses you as follows:

And do you stand silent, refusing to denounce him? What excuse will you have? Will the Church not reckon you among her worst enemies? Will she not consider you a foe and destroyer?  (Saint John Chrysostom: Eight Homilies Against the Jews)


How can any one, no less one who thinks himself to be an alter Christus, remain silent when a man who thinks, albeit falsely, that he is the Vicar of Christ enters synagogues and mosques and esteems the symbols of false religions and expresses the hope that adherents of false religions will live in "peace and harmony" in the Holy Land? How can anyone not exclaim with urgency the words of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, Who remained the Jewish people that there will be no peace in Jerusalem until they say, "Blessed is He Who cometh in the Name of the Lord"?

Then you shall begin to say: We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. And he shall say to you: I know you not, whence you are: depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you shall see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out. And there shall come from the east and the west, and the north and the south; and shall sit down in the kingdom of God. 30 And behold, they are last that shall be first; and they are first that shall be last.

The same day, there came some of the Pharisees, saying to him: Depart, and get thee hence, for Herod hath a mind to kill thee. And he said to them: Go and tell that fox, Behold, I cast out devils, and do cures today and tomorrow, and the third day I am consummated. Nevertheless I must walk today and tomorrow, and the day following, because it cannot be that a prophet perish, out of Jerusalem. Jerusalem, Jerusalem, that killest the prophets, and stonest them that are sent to thee, how often would I have gathered thy children as the bird doth her brood under her wings, and thou wouldest not? Behold your house shall be left to you desolate. And I say to you, that you shall not see me till the time come, when you shall say: Blessed is he that cometh in the name of the Lord. (Luke 13: 26-35.)


Catholicism is the one and only foundation, although never, given the fallen nature of man, an infallible guarantor, of personal and social order. Our Blessed Lord and Saviour gave the Apostles the charge to convert all men and all nations to the true Faith so that they can live in peace with each other by seeing in all others His very impress on their immortal souls. Catholics are never content to leave unbelievers in their false religions until death, understanding that they have a responsibility, at the very least, to pray for the conversion of all non-Catholics to the true Faith, no less than to distribute, as Our Lady herself instructed Sister Justine Bisqueyburo in the Convent on Rue de Bac, blessed Green Scapulars to those whom God's Holy Providence places in our paths. It is not possible for men, such as Jews and Mohammedans, whose souls are held prisoner to the devil by means of Original Sin to leave in "peace and harmony" with each other as they are in enmity with God.

Bishop Fellay, aping his conciliar masters, has referred to the Jews as our "elder brothers in the Faith," an utterance that was dissected with laser-like precision by His Excellency Bishop Donald A. Sanborn in Logical Chickens Coming Home to Roost: A Commentary on Recent Events in SSPX. And as a reader was most kind to point out to me, Father Alban Goodier wrote in The Public Life of Our Lord Jesus Christ that He is meant to be accepted by Jews as their true elder brother, not the other way around:

"From that time Jesus began to shew to his disciples that the Son of Man must go to Jerusalem and suffer many things and be rejected by the ancients and chief priests and scribes and be put to death and after three days rise again   And he spoke the word openly." 

"Now on a sudden all was changed.  He no longer sought to avoid them; He would go into the very jaws of death.   He no longer spoke of His power and authority; He spoke as one who was already doomed.  He had just crowned His teaching by the promise that the gates of hell should not prevail against His Church; yet this was immediately followed by emphatic predictions, that He must go into the centre of danger, that there He must suffer, must be rejected, must die.  And not only must the people reject Him; that, more or less, the Twelve could understand.  Already many had begun to desert Him, many more had never followed Him at all.  The talk they had heard in the bazaar had let them see that the crowds were not to be trusted.  But the rejection, so He told them, would be far more serious than that.  He would be rejected by the ancients, by the chief priests, by the Scribes, by every authority which they held sacred, and all but infallible, and representative of God Himself. In the end, so they had always dreamed, He would win them to His side; by His miracles, by His words, by the evidence of Himself, He would convince these leaders as He had convinced them.  The Old Law would at last recognize its Messias; the priests of the Temple would see in Him their elder Brother,  the prophets would be proved to have been fulfilled in Him.  Ancients, priests, and Scribes would be convinced, and Jerusalem the Golden would own its lawful King."  (Father Alban Goodier, The Public Life of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Chapter XX, First Prophecy of the Passion, p. 2.)


Yet it is in these our times that men who think themselves to be priests and who know these things to be true nevertheless keep silent. Some rationalize away their silence by saying to themselves, "What can I do about this? I'm just following orders." These men, whose ranks will soon should reckon once again with the words of Saint John Chrysostom:

Do not think, then, that you are doing your brothers a favor if you should see them pursuing some absurdity and should fail to accuse them with all zeal. If you lose a cloak, do you not consider as your foe not only the one who stole it but also the man who knew of the theft and refused to denounce the thief? Our common Mother (the Church) has lost not a cloak but a brother. The devil stole him and now holds him in Judaism. You know who stole him; you know him who was stolen. Do you see me lighting, as it were, the lamp of my instruction and searching everywhere in my grief? And do you stand silent, refusing to denounce him? What excuse will you have? Will the Church not reckon you among her worst enemies? Will she not consider you a foe and destroyer?  (Saint John Chrysostom: Eight Homilies Against the Jews)


Father Basil Meramo has spoken out. He has already paid a price for having done so. Although men such as himself will indeed be rooted out of the Society of Saint Pius X in the coming months, Father Meramo is not really alone. Others continue to speak up, having taken Father Meramo's defense of the Faith to its logical conclusion by recognizing that it is impossible for the Catholic Church to be responsible for any of this, that those who defect from the Faith cannot hold office or exercise authority legitimately in the Catholic Church.

Former members of the Society of Saint Pius X such as Bishops Daniel Dolan and Donald Sanborn and Clarence Kelly and Fathers Anthony Cekada, Joseph Collins, Thomas Zapp, William Jenkins, Eugene Berry, and Martin Skierka put loyalty to the Faith above loyalty to a human institution, the Society of Saint Pius X. The priests of the Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen recognized the apostasies of conciliarism as early as the 1970s. The then Father Robert F. McKenna, O.P., and Father Francis Fenton and Father Martin Stepanich, O.F.M., S.T.D., and others recognized this as well, trusting completely in the Providence of God and the maternal care that would be provided to them by His Most Blessed Mother. God did not abandon these good priests. He has rewarded them. Our Lady has protected them. No matter the divisions and disagreements that have occurred among some of them, each was given special graces to recognize that these words of Pope Gregory XVI, contained in Singulari Nos, June 25, 1834, remind us that error can never be found in the Catholic Church:

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.


There are those who think that "God would never permit" such an apostasy as we are facing at present to occur, that "God would never permit" such large numbers of people to be deceived. It is worth repeating here what I have written several times in the past:

No sedevacantist, priest or layman, entered into a mosque and treated it as a holy place by taking off his shoes and assuming the Mohammedan prayer position as he turned in the direction of Mecca.

No sedevacantist, priest or layman, twice entered into Talmudic synagogues to show signs of respect and esteem for a dead religion that is the militant foe of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and His true Church.

No sedevacantist, priest or layman, received the symbols of false religions with respect and esteem and equanimity and joy.

No sedevacantist, priest or layman, prayed with Protestant and Orthodox heretics as the "virtues" of inter-religious "dialogue" were praised yet again without one mention of the necessity of those outside of the true Church to convert with urgency and unconditionally to her maternal bosom.

No sedevacantist, priest or layman, dishonored the Mother of God by refusing to speak of her publicly before thousands upon thousands of people in various events.

No sedevacantist bishop or priest distributed what purports to be Holy Communion in the hand or has countenanced the reception of what purports to be Holy Communion to thorough-going pro-aborts, each of whom remains in perfectly "good standing" in the conciliar structures.

Sedevacantists have not invented these things. The conciliar "pontiffs," manifesting their contempt for the Faith in their brazen displays of apostasy and sacrilege and blasphemy, have done these things, knowing that most Catholics will applaud them for having done them and that there are others who will be silent as they "strategize" about how to "fight for the Faith" when the fight is right before their very eyes and before the eyes of everyone else in the world.

To return to the words of Pope Leo XIII in Sapientiae Christianae:

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.


No one can be forced to "see" the truth of our situation for what it is, that the conciliar revolutionaries are not Catholic and that they belong to a counterfeit church bereft of Holy Orders and of the graces that flow therefrom. That any of the bishops and priests, among so many others, listed above saw it so clearly so long ago, right in the midst of a most diabolically clever use of the media to convey images of Catholicism and Catholicity, is the working of the graces won for us by the shedding of every single drop of the Most Precious Blood of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and that flowed into their hearts and souls through the loving hands of Our Lady, the Mediatrix of All Graces. We must remember that it is very easy to go "back," to refuse to "kick against the goad," to "conform" to what the "mainstream" believes is "respectable" and "prudent."

The "mainstream" is not to be followed.

God permitted one hundred percent of the human race to be deceived in the Garden of Eden.

God permitted all but eight members of the human race to be deceived and deluded prior to the Great Flood.

Almost all of the Chosen People who had been led out of their bondage to the slavery of the Egyptian Pharaoh by Moses built and worshiped a molten calf whilst Moses was receiving the Ten Commandments from God on Mount Sinai.

All but a handful of people stood by Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ as He suffered and died for us on the wood of the Holy Cross on Good Friday.

All but one bishop, Saint John Fisher of Rochester, England, defected from the Faith at the time of the Protestant Revolt in England when King Henry VIII took this thoroughly Catholic country out of the Church.

All but thirty bishops defected from the Faith at the time Queen Elizabeth I took England out of the Church once again in the 1660s following the brief restoration that took place under the reign of her half-sister, Queen Mary, from 1553 to 1558.

The "mainstream" is not be followed. We need apostolic courage in these times of apostasy and betrayal. God's greater honor and glory must be defended against the against of men who have proved themselves to be precursors of the Antichrist.

How do we think that we are going to recognize, no less resist and reject, the Antichrist when he comes we are so complacent and smug in the face of the groundwork that is being laid by his conciliar minions for his coming? Will the emotionalism of sentimentality and the delusion of positivism not prevail then in the minds and hearts of most men?


Bishop George Hay, writing over 200 years ago, reminded us that Catholics who act as Ratzinger/Benedict does by entering into synagogues and mosques and other places of false worship deprive themselves of communion with the Catholic Church:

The spirit of Christ, which dictated the Holy Scriptures, and the spirit which animates and guides the Church of Christ, and teaches her all truth, is the same; and therefore in all ages her conduct on this point has been uniformly the same as what the Holy Scripture teaches. She has constantly forbidden her children to hold any communication, in religious matters, with those who are separated from her communion; and this she has sometimes done under the most severe penalties. In the apostolical canons, which are of very ancient standing, and for the most part handed down from the apostolical age, it is thus decreed: "If any bishop, or priest, or deacon, shall join in prayers with heretics, let him be suspended from Communion". (Can. 44)

Also, "If any clergyman or laic shall go into the synagogue of the Jews, or the meetings of heretics, to join in prayer with them, let him be deposed, and deprived of communion". (Can. 63) (Bishop George Hay, (The Laws of God Forbidding All Communication in Religion With Those of a False Religion.)


No man in the conciliar priesthood who loves God should be indifferent about offenses given to His honor and glory and majesty. He must flee from everything to do with the falsehoods of conciliarism and the nonexistent legitimacy of its false shepherds.

We turn, as always to Our Lady, who holds us in the crossing of her arms and in the folds of her mantle. We must, as the consecrated slaves of her Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, through her Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, pray as many Rosaries each day as our states-in-life permit, trusting that we might be able to plant a few seeds for the Triumph of that same Immaculate Heart.

We may not see until eternity, please God and by the graces He sends to us through the loving hands of His Most Blessed Mother, the fruit of the seeds we plant by means of our prayers and penances and sacrifices, given unto the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary. We must remain confident, however, that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ wants to us, as unworthy as we are, to try to plant a few seeds so that more and more Catholics in the conciliar structures, both "priests" and laity alike, will recognize that it is indeed a sin to stand by He is blasphemed by Modernists, that He--and His true priesthood--are to be found in the catacombs where no concessions at all are made to conciliarism or its wolves in shepherds' clothing.

Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon!

Viva Cristo Rey!
