Although it had been my intention to give our reigning caesar a bit of attention, the publicity hound from Argentina continues to hog the spotlight insofar as this website is concerned.
Admitting that it is absolutely impossible for one man, especially whose website lacks the financial wherewithal to subsidize itself, to chronicle and comment upon all that is happening in this era of apostasy and betrayal, I have made a decision to refrain from spending long hours, sometimes lasting until four o'clock in the morning, to complete articles that wind up repeating points made repeatedly on various other occasions.
There are times, however, when a fairly immediate response to a particularly egregious remark or action by Jorge Mario Bergoglio.
Such is the case at present, which involves nothing other than the sacred honor of the very Mother of God, the Blessed Virgin Mary, she who made possible our salvation by her perfect Fiat to the will of God the Father at Annunciation.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio continues to demonstrate that almost everything he believes concerning what he represents as the Catholic Faith is but a mere invention of his very warped Modernist mind.
For example, Jorge Mario Bergoglio is on a crusade to portray himself as a latter-day "prophet," a veritable Twenty-first Century version of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ who is being criticized and persecuted by the "Pharisees" of today just as Our Lord Himself had been in His. Bergoglio, who prides himself on being so very humble and simple, you understand, does not realize that he has reached the point of self-caricature with his incessant screeds against a tiny fraction of people inside of his counterfeit church of conciliarism who are in any way attached to the slightest expression of the authentic, immutable patrimony of Catholic Tradition, including, of course, even the modernized version of the Immemorial Mass of Tradition that is called the "extraordinary form" of the "one" Roman Rite in the conciliar church. There is really no further need to comment on this self-caricature, other than to point out that it is but of many examples of Bergoglio projecting onto the Divine Redeemer his own "random" thoughts.
Similarly, it has not been enough for Bergoglio to blaspheme Our Lady by projecting onto her the disorderly inclinations that are part of the fallen human nature she was preserved from by virtue of her Immaculate Conception. Bergoglio has shown us that he has no knowledge of and/or contempt for the doctrinal effects of the Perfect Integrity that Our Lady enjoyed as a result of her Immaculate Conception.
Bergoglio reached a new low in this regard even by his own foul standards of blasphemous indecency when he said the following at the Casa Santa Marta during yesterday's session of his Ding Dong School of Apostasy:
The Mother of Jesus was the perfect icon of silence. From the proclamation of her exceptional maternity at Calvary. The Pope said he thinks about “how many times she remained quiet and how many times she did not say that which she felt in order to guard the mystery of her relationship with her Son,” up until the most raw silence “at the foot of the cross”.
“The Gospel does not tell us anything: if she spoke a word or not… She was silent, but in her heart, how many things told the Lord! ‘You, that day, this and the other that we read, you had told me that he would be great, you had told me that you would have given him the throne of David, his forefather, that he would have reigned forever and now I see him there!’ Our Lady was human! And perhaps she even had the desire to say: ‘Lies! I was deceived!’ John Paul II would say this, speaking about Our Lady in that moment. But she, with her silence, hid the mystery that she did not understand and with this silence allowed for this mystery to grow and blossom in hope.” (Ever Talkative Apostate: Silence guards one's relationship with God.)
First of all, a man who is never silent is the last person in the world to speak about the necessity of silence.
Secondly, there is only one word that can be used to describe Bergoglio, and it is the one chosen as the title of this brief commentary: Blasphemer.
Our Lady, the Queen of Martyrs, accepted the will of God the Father for His Co-Equal and Co-Eternal Son, her own sole begotten Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, without regret or complaint. She suffered, to be sure, as no human being had suffered before her or would suffer after her until the end of time. She suffered because she saw the unspeakable wretched effects that our sins, having transcended time, had on the very Body that she had given Our Lord in her Virginal and Immaculate Womb. Our Blessed Mother suffered in complete compassion with her Divine Son and was grieved greatly by the ingratitude of sinful men for whom He was shedding every single drop of His Most Precious Blood to redeem and who she would bring to spiritual rebirth in great agony as she stood so valiantly at the foot of His Holy Cross.
The Venerable Mary of Agreda the true disposition of Our Lady as she accompanied her Divine Son on the Via Dolorosa to Mount Calvary:
As a reward for their tears and their compassion these women were enlightened so as to understand this doctrine. In fulfillment of the prayerful wish of the blessed Mother the pharisees and ministers were inspired with the resolve to engage some man to help Jesus our Savior in carrying the Cross to mount Calvary. At this juncture, Simon, of Cyrene, the father of the disciples Alexander and Rufus (Mark 15, 21), happened to come along. He was called by this name because he was a native of Cyrene, a city of Lybia, and had come to Jerusalem. This Simon was now forced by the Jews to carry the Cross a part of the way. They themselves would not touch it, yea would not even come near it, as being the instrument of punishment for One whom they held to be a notorious malefactor. By this pretended caution and avoidance of his Cross they sought to impress the people with a horror for Jesus. The Cyrenean took hold of the Cross and Jesus was made to follow between the two thieves, in order that all might believe Him to be a criminal and malefactor like to them. The Virgin Mother walked very closely behind Jesus, as She had desired and asked from the eternal Father. To his divine will She so conformed Herself in all the labors and torments of her Son that, witnessing with her own eyes and partaking of all the sufferings of her Son in her blessed soul and in her body, She never allowed any sentiment or wish to arise interiorly or exteriorly, which could be interpreted as regret for the sacrifice She had made in offering her Son for the death of the Cross and its sufferings. Her charity and love of men, and her grace and holiness, were so great, that She vanquished all these movements of her human nature. (The Venerable Mary of Agreda, The Mystical City of God, Volume III: The Transfixion, p. 637-638.)
"She never allowed any sentiment or wish to arise interiorly or exteriorly, which could be interpreted as a regret for the Sacrifice She had made in offering her Son for the death on the Cross and its sufferings. Her charity and love of men, and her grace and holiness, were so great, that She vanquished all these movements of her human nature."
So much for "Lies! I was deceived," Bergoglio. Blasphemer.
Our Lady was no less composed in the integrity of the interior movements of her soul as she stood at the foot of her Divine Son's Cross:
665. When the most prudent Mother perceived that now the mysteries of the Redemption were to be fulfilled and that the executioners were about to strip Jesus of his clothes for crucifixion, She turned in spirit to the eternal Father and prayed as follows : "My Lord and eternal God, Thou art the Father of thy onlybegotten Son. By eternal generation He is engendered, God of the true God, namely Thyself, and as man He was born of my womb and received from me this human nature, in which He now suffers. I have nursed and sustained Him at my own breast; and as the best of sons that ever can be born of any creature, I love Him with maternal love. As his Mother I have a natural right in the Person of his most holy humanity and thy Providence will never infringe upon any rights held by thy creatures. This right of a Mother then, I now yield to Thee and once more place in thy hands thy and my Son as a sacrifice for the Redemption of man. Accept, my Lord, this pleasing offering, since this is more than I can ever offer by submitting my own self as a victim or to suffering. This sacrifice is greater, not only be cause my Son is the true God and of thy own substance, but because this sacrifice costs me a much greater sorrow and pain. For if the lots were changed and I should be permitted to die in order to preserve his most holy life, I would consider it a great relief and the fulfillment of my dearest wishes." The eternal Father received this prayer of the exalted Queen with ineffable pleasure and complacency. The patriarch Abraham was permitted to go no further than to prefigure and attempt the sacrifice of a son, because the real execution of such a sacrifice God reserved to Himself and to his Onlybegotten. Nor was Sara, the mother of Isaac, informed of the mystical ceremony, this being prevented not only by the prompt ness of Abraham s obedience, but also because he mistrusted, lest the maternal love of Sara, though she was a just and holy woman, should impel her to prevent the execution of the divine command. But not so was it with most holy Mary, to whom the eternal Father could fearlessly manifest his unchangeable will in order that She might, as far as her powers were concerned, unite with Him in the sacrifice of his Onlybegotten. (The Venerable Mary of Agreda, The Mystical City of God, Volume III: The Transfixion, pp. 643-644.)
Similar testimony is provided to us by Saint Alphonsus de Liguori in Victories of the Martyrs as he drew upon the writings of various saints to describe Our Lady's disposition during her Divine Son's Passion and Death:
We have now to witness a new kind of martyrdom--a
Mother condemned to see an innocent Son, and one whom she loves with the
whole affection of her soul, cruelly tormented and put to death before
her own eyes.
There stood by the cross of Jesus his Mother.
St. John believed that in these words he had said enough of Mary's
martyrdom. Consider her at the foot of the cross in the presence of her
dying Son, and then see if there be a sorrow like unto her sorrow. Let
us remain for awhile this day on Calvary, and consider the fifth sword
which, in the death of Jesus, transfixed the heart of Mary.
As soon as our agonized Redeemer had reached the
Mount of Calvary, the executioners stripped him of his clothes, and
piercing his hands and feet "not with sharp but with blunt nails," as
St. Bernard says, to torment him more, they fastened him on the cross.
Having crucified him, they planted the cross, and thus left him to die.
The executioners left him; but not so Mary. She then drew nearer to the
cross, to be present at his death; "I did not leave him (thus the
Blessed Virgin revealed to St. Bridget), "but stood nearer to the
"But what it avail thee, O Lady." says St.
Bonaventure, "to go to Calvary, and see this Son expire? Shame should
have prevented thee; for his disgrace was thine, since thou were his
Mother. At least, horror of witnessing such a crime as the crucifixion
of a God by his own creatures should have prevented thee from going
there." But the same saint answers, "Ah, they heart did not then think
of its own sorrows, but of the sufferings and death of thy dear Son,:
and therefore thou wouldst thyself be present, at least to compassionate
Him. "Ah, true Mother," says Abbot William, "most loving Mother, whom
not even the fear of death could separate from thy beloved Son!"
But, O God, what a cruel sight was it there to
behold this Son in agony on the cross, and at its foot this Mother in
agony, suffering all the torments endured by her Son! Listen to the
words in which Mary revealed to St. Bridget the sorrowful state in which
she saw her dying Son on the Cross: "My dear Jesus was breathless,
exhausted, and in his last agony on the cross; his eyes were sunk,
half-closed, and lifeless; his lips hanging, and his mouth open; his
cheeks hollow and drawn in; his face elongated, his nose sharp, his
countenance sad; his head had fallen on his breast, his hair was black
with blood, his stomach collapsed, his arms and legs stiff, and his
whole body covered with wounds and blood."
All these sufferings of Jesus were also those of
Mary; "Every torture inflicted on the body of Jesus," says St. Jerome,
"was a wound in the heart of the Mother." "Whoever then was present on
the Mount of Calvary," says St. John Chrysostom, "might see two altars,
on which two great sacrifices were consummated; the one in the body of
Jesus, the other in the heart of Mary." Nay, better still may we say
with St. Bonaventure, "there was but one altar--that of the cross of the
Son, on which, together with his divine Lamb, the victim, this Mother
was also sacrificed;" therefore the saint asks this Mother, "O Lady,
where art thou? near the cross? thyself with thy Son." St. Augustine
assures us of the same thing: "The Cross and nails of the Son were also
those of his Mother; with Christ crucified the Mother was also
crucified." Yes; for, as St. Bernard says, "Love inflicted on the heart
of Mary the tortures caused by nails in the body of Jesus." So much so,
that, as St. Bernardine writes, "At the same time that the Son
sacrificed his body, the Mother sacrificed her soul."
Mothers ordinarily fly from the presence of their
dying children; but when a mother is obliged to witness such a scene,
she procures all possible relief for her child; she arranges his bed,
that he may be more at ease; she administers refreshments to him; and
thus the poor mother soothes her own grief. Ah, most afflicted of all
Mothers! O Mary, thou hast to witness the agony of thy dying Jesus; but
thou canst administer him no relief. Mary heard her Son exclaim, I thirst,
but she could not even give him a drop of water to refresh him in that
great thirst. She could only say, as St. Vincent Ferrer remarks, "My
Son, I have only the water of tears." She saw that on that bed of
torture her Son, suspended by three nails, could find no repose; she
would have clasped him in her arms to give him relief, or that at least
he might there have expired; but she could not. "In vain," says St.
Bernard, "did she extend her arms; they sank back empty on her breast."
She beheld that poor Son, who in his sea of grief sought consolation, as
it was foretold by the prophet, but in vain: I have trodden the winepress alone; I looked about and there was none to help; I sought, and there was none to give aid. But who amongst men would console him, since all were enemies? Even on the cross he was taunted and blasphemed on all sides: And
they that passed by, blasphemed Him, wagging their heads. Some said to
his face, If thou be the Son God, come down from the cross. Others, He saved others, Himself He cannot save. Again, If He be the King of Israel, let Him come down from the cross.
Our Blessed Lady herself said to St. Bridget, "I heard some say that my
Son was a thief; others that he was an impostor; others, that no one
deserved death more than he did; and every word was a new sword of grief
to my heart."
But that which the most increased the sorrows which
Mary endured through compassion for her Son, was hearing him complain
on the cross that even his Eternal Father had abandoned him: My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me?
Words which the divine Mother told the same St. Bridget could never,
during her whole life, depart from her mind. So that the afflicted
Mother saw her Jesus suffering on every side; she desired to comfort
him, but could not.
That which grieved her the most was to see that she
herself, by her presence and sorrow, increased the sufferings of her
Son. "The grief," says St. Bernard, "which filled Mary's heart, as a
torrent flowed into and embittered the heart of Jesus." "So much so,"
says the same saint, "that Jesus on the cross suffered more from
compassion for his Mother than from his own torments." He thus speaks in
the name of our Blessed Lady: "I stood with my eyes fixed on him, and
his on me, and he grieved more for me than for himself." And then,
speaking of Mary beside her dying Son, he says, "that she lived dying
without being able to die." "Near the cross of Christ his Mother stood
half-dead; she spoke not; dying she lived, and living she died; nor
could she die, for death was her very life."
Passino writes that Jesus Christ himself one day,
speaking to blessed Baptista Varani of Camerino, assured her that when
on the cross, so great was his affliction at seeing his Mother at his
feet in so bitter an anguish, that compassion for her caused him to die
without consolation; so much so, that the Blessed Baptista, being
supernaturally enlightened as to the greatness of this suffering of
Jesus, exclaimed, "O Lord, tell me no more of this Thy sorrow, for I can
no longer bear it."
"All," says Simon of
Cassia, "who then saw this Mother silent, and not uttering a complaint
in the midst of so great suffering, were filled with astonishment." But
if Mary's lips were silent, her heart was not so, for she necessarily
offered the life of her Son to the divine justice for our salvation.
Therefore, we know that by the merits of her dolors she cooperated in
our birth to the life of grace; and hence we are the children of her
sorrows. "Christ," says Lanspergius, "was pleased that she, the
cooperatress in our redemption, and whom he had determined to give us
for our Mother, should be there present; for it was at the foot of the
cross that she was to bring us, her children forth." If any consolation
entered that sea of bitterness in the heart of Mary, the only one was
this, that she knew that by her sorrows she was leading us to eternal
salvation, as Jesus himself revealed to St. Bridget: "My Mother Mary, on
account of her compassion and love, was made the Mother of all in
heaven and on earth." And indeed these were the lat words with which
Jesus bid her farewell before his death: this was his last
recommendation, leaving us to her for her children in the person of St.
John: Woman, behold thy son. From that time Mary began to
perform this good office of a mother for us; for St. Peter Damian
attests, "that by the prayers of Mary, who stood between the cross of
the good thief and that of her Son, the thief was converted and saved,
and thereby she repaid a former service." For, as other authors also
relate, this thief had been kind to Jesus and Mary on their journey into
Egypt; and this same office the Blessed Virgin has ever continued, and
still continues, to perform." (Saint Alphonsus de Liguori, Victories of the Martyrs.)
Although Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II paved the way for Jorge Mario Bergoglio's latest blasphemy, which is very common amongst his revolutionary Jesuit confreres, Bergoglio is so bold as to place sentiments in the mind of the Blessed Virgin Mary that deny the doctrinal effects of her Perfect Integrity and that ignore the plain witness provided us by saints and mystics. "Reality," for Jorge Mario Bergoglio, is whatever he conjures it up to be.
Father Frederick William Faber explained Our Lady's disposition as she stood by the foot of the Holy Cross as follows:
Another peculiarity of the Crucifixion is the length
of time during which the tide of suffering remained at its highest point
without any sign of ebbing. The mysteries, which filled the three
hours, seem too diversified for us to regard them, at least till we come
to the Dereliction, as rising from less to greater in any graduated
scale. They are rather separate elevations, of unequal height, standing
linked together like a mountain-chain. But the lowest of them was so
immensely high that it produced most immeasurable agony in her soul. The
anguish of death is momentary. The length of some of the most terrific
operations which can rack the human frame seldom exceeds a quarter of an
hour. Pain pushed beyond a certain limit, as in medieval torture, is
instantaneous death. In human punishments which are not meant to kill,
the hand of science keeps watch on the pulse of the sufferer. But to
Mary the Crucifixion was three hours, three long hours, of mortal agony,
comprising hundreds of types and shapes of torture, each one of them
intolerable in itself, each pushed beyond the limits of human endurance
unless supported by miracle, and each of them kept at that superhuman
pitch for all that length of time. When pain comes we wish to lie down
unless madness and delirium come with it, or we are fain to run about,
to writhe, gesticulate, and groan. Mary stood upright on her feet the
whole while, leaning on no one, and not so much as an audible sigh
accompanied her silent tears. It is difficult to take this thought in.
We can only take it in by prayer, not by hearing or reading.
It was also a peculiarity of the
Crucifixion that it was a heroic trial of her incomparable faith. Pretty
nearly the faith of the whole world was in her when she stood, with
John and Magdalen, at the foot of the Cross. There was hardly a particle
of her belief which was not tried to the uttermost in that amazing
scene. Naturally speaking, our Lord's Divinity was never so obscured.
Supernaturally speaking, it was never so manifest. Could it be possible
that the Incarnate Word should be subject to the excesses of such
unparalleled indignities? Was the light within Him never to gleam out
once? Was the Wisdom of the Father to be with blasphemous ridicule
muffled in a white sack, and pulled about in absurd, undignified
helplessness by the buffooning guards of an incestuous king? Was there
not a point, or rather were there not many points, in the Passion, when
the limit of what was venerable and fitting was overstepped? even in the
reserved narrative of the Gospels, how many things there are which the
mind cannot dwell on without being shocked and repulsed, as well as
astonished! Even at this distance of time do they not try our faith by
their very horror, make our blood run cold by their murderous atrocity,
and tempt our devotion to withdraw, sick and fastidious, from the
affectionate contemplation of the very prodigies of disgraceful cruelty,
by which our own secret sins and shames were with such public shame
most lovingly expiated? Is not devotion to the Passion to this day the
touchstone of feeble faith, of lukewarm love, and of all self-indulgent
penance? And Mary, more delicate and fastidious far than we, drank all
these things with her eyes, and understood the horror of them in her
soul, as we can never understand it. Think what faith was hers. (Father
Frederick Faber, The Foot of the Cross, published originally in England
in 1857 under the title of The Dolors of Mary, reprinted by TAN Books
and Publishers, pp. 259-262.)
Yes, Our Lady had Faith all throughout her immense sufferings as she watched her only-begotten Son suffer and die for our redemption. She felt the pangs of bitter agony as she suffered as on with her Divine Son. Never once, however, did she accuse God the Father of being a "deceiver."
Indeed, the deceiver himself could not comprehend what kind of woman Our Lady to be as Christ the King was about to undergo His Passion and Death:
223. Finding himself then full of uncertainty concern ing the experiences of the demons and of Himself with Jesus and Mary, this enemy of the human race questioned himself by what power he had been vanquished and put to flight in his attempts to ruin the dangerously sick and the dying and in his other encounters with the Queen of heaven. As he could not clear the mystery for himself, he resolved to consult those of his associates who excelled in malice and astuteness. He gave forth a roar or tremendous howl in hell, using the language understood by the demons, and called together those who were subject to him. All of them having been gathered together, he made them a speech, saying: "My ministers and companions, who have always followed me in my just opposition, you well know that in the first state in which we were placed by the Creator of all things, we acknowledged Him as the universal source of all our being and thus also respected Him. But as soon as, to the detriment of our beauty and pre-eminence, so close to the Deity, He imposed upon us the command, that we adore and serve the person of the Word, in the human form, which He in tended to assume, we resisted his will. For although I knew, that this reverence was due Him as God, yet as He chose to unite Himself to the nature of man, so ignoble and inferior to mine, I could not bear to be subject to Him, nor could I bear to see, that He did not favor me rather than the creature man. He not only commanded us to adore Him, but also to recognize as our superior a Woman, his Mother, a mere earthly creature. To these
grievances I took exception and you with me. We objected to them and resolved to deny Him obedience. On account of our behavior at that time we are punished and made to suffer the pains of our present condition. Although we are aware of these truths and acknowledge them with terror among ourselves, it will not do to confess them before men (Jas. 2, 19). And this I put as a command upon you all, in order that they may not know of our present difficulty and weakness."
224. "But if this Godman and his Mother are really to come, it. is clear, that their coming into this world shall be the beginning of our greatest ruin and torment,
and that, for this reason, I must seek with all my strength to prevent it and to destroy Them, even at the cost of overturning and destroying all the world. You all know how invincible has been my strength until now, since such a great portion of the world obeyed my command and is subject to my will and cunning. But in the last few years I have noticed on many occasions, that your powers seemed to have decreased and weakened, that you were oppressed and overcome, and I myself feel a superior force, which restrains and intimidates me. Several times I have searched with you through the whole world, trying to find some clue for this loss and oppression which we feel. If this Messias, who is promised to the chosen people of God, is already in the world, we not only fail
to discover Him on the whole face of the earth, but we see no certain signs of his coming and we perceive none of the pomp and outward show naturally attendant upon such a person. Nevertheless I have my misgivings, lest the time of his coming from heaven onto this earth be already near. Therefore we ought all be eager to destroy Him and the Woman whom He shall choose for His Mother. Whoever shall distinguish himself in this work, shall not complain of my thankfulness and reward. Until now I have found guilt and the effects of guilt in all men, and I have seen no such majesty and grand magnificence as would induce the Word to become man and which would oblige mortals to adore Him and offer Him sacrifice, for by this homage we shall be able to recognize Him. The certain indication of his coming and the distinguishing mark of the Messias will no doubt be, that neither sin nor its consequences, common to other children of Adam, will ever be able to touch Him." (The Venerable Mary of Agreda, The Mystical City of God, Volume III: The Transfixion, pp. 643-644.)
Lucifer has chosen Jorge Mario Bergoglio to be a particularly potent instrument to destroy the truth about Our Lady, and the sad reality for him is that he will have to accept without complaint the adversary's "thankfulness and reward" for his bold efforts of proclaiming blasphemy to be true. Only his conversion back to the true Faith from which he defected in his youth and his public abjuration and desire to do penance for his criminal speech against the Mother God can save him.
Alas, Bergoglio is convinced that he is that latter-day "prophet" who is be persecuted by the "Pharisees." His pride knows no limits. His blasphemy knows no limits. there is only one word to describe "Pope Francis": Blasphemer. Why is there any need to write any more about this horrible man? His own words display him to be, whether wittingly or unwittingly, a tool of Lucifer himself.
We are four days away from Christmas joy! Let us be earnest about making reparation for our own sins and for those of the whole world, including the horrific sins of Jorge Mario Bergoglio, especially by praying some extra Rosaries for each of the next four days.
The triumph of Our Lady's Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart will be made manifest in God's good time, at which point it's curtains for blasphemies such as Jorge Mario Bergoglio, which could be why he is working very furiously to do the bidding of the "spirit" who speaks to and moves him, a spirit who is from Hell, not Heaven.
Viva Cristo Rey! Vivat Christus Rex!
