Celebrating Apostasy and Dereliction of Duty
Thomas A. Droleskey
The biggest show in town is not Huckleberry Hound. No, the biggest show in town will soon be the faux "beatification" of the apostate named Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II, a magnificent actor who fooled so many believing Catholics for over a quarter of a century while he promoted propositions that had been anathematized by the Catholic Church and engaged in one blasphemous, sacrilegious "liturgical" spectacle after another around the world.
Yes, the man who protected moral derelicts within his doctrinally, liturgically and morally corrupt "hierarchy will be "beatified" on Low Sunday, May 1, 2011, by his kindred spirit in Modernism by way of the "New Theology," Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI. Although this brief article will not be covering all of the same points made in "Canonizing" A Man Who Protected Moral Derelicts, "Beatifying" Yet Another Conciliar Revolutionary, "Connecting" with Betrayal, Baal, Yes, Most Holy Trinity, No, "Thumbs Up" From a Communist for an Apostate and Baal, Yes, Holy Trinity, No, I do believe that it would be useful to remind readers of the simple fact that Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI has a vested interest in "beatifying" his conciliar predecessor as to do so would further "validate" the "springtime of the church" that is believed to have "flowered" as a result of the "Second" Vatican Council and the magisterial of the conciliar "pontiffs."
Here is a report on the "festivities" that are planned prior to the "beatification" of Wojtyla/John Paul II on Sunday, May 1, 2011, which the late "pontiff" himself renamed as "Divine Mercy Sunday" in honor of the devotion spread by Sister Faustina Kowalska that he "blessed" as it conveys his embrace of the heresy of "universal salvation" that was so near and dear to his phenomenological heart:
Perhaps the grandest beatification ceremony ever celebrated – the May 1
beatification of Pope John Paul II – will be divided into stages to
maintain a solemn spirit across three days of prayerful preparation,
celebration and thanksgiving.
Cardinal Agostino Vallini, the Pope's vicar for the Diocese of Rome,
called the long beatification weekend a "spiritual journey" at an April 5
press conference held to present the details of the much awaited event.
The actual ceremony is set for the morning of May 1, sandwiched
between an evening prayer vigil and a thanksgiving Mass the following
As pilgrims arrive to the Eternal City by bus, ferry, and even
"charter trains" on April 30, they are invited to join together at the
Circus Maximus – a great field in the center of Rome once used for
chariot races – for a prayer vigil. The vigil will be both "universal
and very Roman," said Cardinal Vallini as he described the major
elements of the gathering.
It is to be divided in two parts. The first is a celebration of the
memory of the late pontiff. A choir and orchestra will provide the music
as the image of Our Lady of Rome, Maria Salus Populi Romani, is
processed into the venue.
Three people who were deeply affected by Pope John Paul II will be
present to give their testimonies. His spokesman, Joaquin Navarro-Valls,
his personal secretary, Cardinal Stanislaw Dziwisz, and the religious
sister miraculously healed of Parkinson's disease through his
intercession, Sister Marie Simon-Pierre, will all speak of the Pope's
effect on their lives.
A second moment will be the prayer of the luminous mysteries of the
Rosary. The Circus Maximus will be connected by video to five Marian
shrines around the world and each of the five decades of the Rosary will
be dedicated to an intention held dear by Pope John Paul II.
Those taking part in the live video feed include: the sanctuary of
Divine Mercy at the Lagniewniki Shrine in Krakow, Poland; the Kawekamo
Shrine in Bugando, Tanzania; Our Lady of Lebanon Shrine in Harissa,
Lebanon; the Basilica of Holy Mary of Guadalupe in Mexico City; and the
Fatima Shrine in Portugal. The prayer intentions will be for the youth,
the family, evangelization, hope and peace for nations and the Church.
Pope Benedict himself will join by video for a final prayer and to impart the apostolic blessing on the faithful.
Father Federico Lombardi, SJ, the Vatican spokesman, said that
parishes and Catholic communities everywhere are invited to take part in
simultaneous prayer initiatives.
Though the prayer vigil is scheduled to finish at 10:30 p.m., the
prayerful preparation and "spiritual journey" will continue through the
night. A total of eight parishes will be open through the night to
provide places for worship and confession as the faithful make the
pilgrimage across the historic city center to St. Peter's Square for the
morning beatification ceremony.
Many of the faithful are expected to spend the night under the stars
as they await the start of the beatification celebration. The Opera
Romana Pelligrinaggi—the agency charged with coordinating the
events—will have drinks and snacks available at refreshment stands to
keep pilgrims sustained as they wait for the square to open in the early
hours of the morning.
A Twitter account has also been set up through the Vatican's Pope2You
website, whereby pilgrims can "tweet" about the experience as it
unfolds and those interested around the world can follow along.
At 9:00 a.m., the throng of pilgrims will join together in an hour of
prayer, beginning with the Divine Mercy Chaplet and finishing with an
invocation of mercy over the whole world.
The beatification ceremony and Mass will then be presided over by the
Pope, with cardinals concelebrating. When the Pope pronounces John Paul
II a "blessed" and thus one step closer to official sainthood, an
enormous image of the Pope will be unveiled in the square.
For the enormous turnout - estimated at around 400,000 - there will
be 14 "maxi-screens" set up in the square and down the street leading
out of it so the faithful can follow along.
There will be 500 priests distributing communion to the faithful in
St. Peter's Square and the outer Pius XII Square. Another 300 will be
available to offer the Eucharist to those pilgrims who are expected to
fill the street leading up to St. Peter's.
Churches around Rome will also offer communion during the beatification Mass for those who seek it.
A half hour after the Mass and following a visit from Pope Benedict
and the cardinals to render him homage, John Paul II's coffin will be
available for veneration within St. Peter's Basilica. The coffin,
however, will not be opened.
It will remain in its place until the last person who wishes to see
it has done so. Fr. Lombardi said that this could even mean that visits
extend into May 2.
On May 2, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone will preside over the final
moment of the beatification celebrations. He will preside over an
open-air thanksgiving Mass in St. Peter's Square to wrap up the
three-day spiritual journey.
One of the priests joining Cardinal Vallini and Fr. Lombardi at the
April 5 press conference, Fr. Cesar Atuire of Opera Romana
Pelligrinaggi, used the famous Italian words of John Paul II to invite
all comers. For pilgrims who might come if not for perceived
difficulties with accommodations or other services, he said, "Non
abbiate paura!" (Do not fear!)
Costs are being kept down by an "ethics card" signed as a contract between organizers and local businesses to keep them honest.
"There is space for everyone and the organization we are putting in
place will be able to serve all comers," concluded Fr. Atuire.
Pilgrims, he said, can aid in the preparation process by registering online at www.beatusjpii.org. (Vatican plans 'spiritual journey' for John Paul II beatification.)
There is no need to summarize yet again the wealth of apostate statements made by and sacrilegious events presided over by Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II, although I do want to refer readers yet again to the wealth of information provided by Father Luigi Villa about the false "pontiff" that is quite useful even though Father Villa refuses to see that he has made one of the best cases imaginable against the legitimacy of Wojtyla/John Paul II's "pontificate" (see http://www.ourladyofgoodsuccess.com/frames-3-4-2005/chiesa-viva/Chiesa%20viva%20430%20S%20en.pdf), cautioning readers that the article contains
graphic photographs of indecently dressed individuals, including Wojtyla
himself, and should not be viewed by the young or by others who desire
to avoid such photographs, most of which were taken at public events
that were without any precedent in the history of the Catholic Church.
What is important to stress at this juncture, I believe, is that just as there must be a "new theology" for a new religion and a new liturgy for a new religion and A New Fatima For A New Religion so must there be new "saints" for the new religion of conciliarism. The "beatification" of Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II is the capstone of a process that has seen the "beatification" of the first of the conciliar "popes," Angelo Roncalli/John XXIII, which took place on the same day as that of the true pope who condemned every Modernist proposition that Roncalli embraced throughout the course of his priesthood, Pope Pius IX. Wojtyla/John Paul II chose the date for the joint "beatifications" of Pope Pius IX and Roncalli/John XXIII quite well. The date was September 3, 2000, the traditional feast day of the last truly canonized pope of the Catholic Church, Pope Saint Pius X, who condemned Modernism and who condemned The Sillon whose false philosophy is at the foundation of conciliarism's worldview and was endorsed by Roncalli even after it was condemned by our last sainted pontiff in Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910.
Wojtyla/John Paul II also set in motion the "beatification" of a precursor of conciliarism, Father Antonio Rosmini, when he approved Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI's decision to overturn Pope Leo XIII's posthumous condemnation of forty Rosmini's propositions that dovetail almost exactly with those of the magisterium of the conciliar "pontiffs," especially those of Wojtyla/John Paul II and Ratzinger/Benedict XVI.
Ratzinger/Benedict and his fellow
conciliarists believe that they can dismiss such solemn oaths and The Oath Against Modernism (September 1, 1910) and past
papal encyclical letters and dogmatic pronouncements with ready abandon,
finding their Hegelian sense of "continuity in discontinuity." However,
it is also necessary for the conciliarists to "canonize" this
revolution against the Catholic Faith by seeking to "beatify" and
"canonize" their "own" for the "people" to venerate and invoke.
really nothing new. Even secular revolutionaries "canonize" their own.
Vladimir Lenin's artificially preserved body has been on display in
Moscow since his death in 1921, having to undergo daily embalming
treatments to preserve its "incorrupt" character. Similar efforts have
been made to preserve the bodies of Mao Zedong and Ho Chi Minh and Kim
Il Sung. Indeed, it is quite an irony that Angelo Roncalli personally
authorized the efforts to make it appear as though his body would be
incorrupt after death, placing him in a league with the Soviet
revolutionaries whose machinations he agreed not have criticized at the
"Second" Vatican Council in exchange for the presence of "observers"
from the heretical and schismatic Russian Orthodox Church. The "saint
making factory" of the counterfeit church of conciliarism is, therefore,
working overtime to make sure that its heralds are honored in the
"liturgy" that their revolutionary efforts helped to bring to fruition.
The case of the "beatification" of Antonio Rosmini was
just as much a slap in the face to Pope Leo XIII as the placement of a
"mural" (or whatever form of art it is) of Angelo Roncalli in full papal
regalia looking down upon the altar of Pope Saint Pius X in the
Basilica of Saint Peter is to the great foe of the Modernism so favored
by Roncalli. The case of the "beatification" of Antonio Rosmini was just
as much a slap in the face to the Scholastic Philosophy that is held in
such contempt by Ratzinger/Benedict and his fellow Modernists as the removal of
the authentically incorrupt body of Saint Josaphat from its original place in the Basilica of Saint Peter (and its replacement with the artificially preserved body of Roncalli)
it was to efforts of the great Seventeenth Century Archbishop of Krakow
to seek the conversion of the heretical and schismatic Orthodox to the
true Faith. The case of the "beatification" or Antonio Rosmini is yet
another statement on the part of the conciliar revolutionaries that
theirs is the path of a true "synthesis of the Faith" and that their
"protagonists" are no less holy than those who opposed them. It does
take, after all, succeeding generations to discover how something
condemned in the past can be seen as true in the future.
Ratzinger/Benedict is thus laying the groundwork for his own "beatification" by his successor in the conciliar structures just as surely as Angelo Roncalli/John XXIII carefully planned how his corpulent body would be preserved after death. It is necessary for the conciliarists to propose "anti-saints," if you will, in order to lend legitimacy to the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo service and the new ecclesiology and episcopal collegiality and religious liberty and separation of Church and State and false ecumenism and its mania for inter-religious "dialogue" and "prayer" services. Most importantly of all, however, the "beatifications" of those possessed by the apostate, sacrilegious spirit of conciliarism lends legitimacy to this false religion's unremitting warfare against the nature of dogmatic truth in spite of the direct condemnations issued under the direction of God the Holy Ghost by the [First] Vatican Council and our true popes, condemnations that merely give ecclesiastical recognition of an effort to contradict the principle of non-contradiction, thereby making a mockery of the very nature of God Himself and His Divine Revelation.
The conciliar 'beatifications" are meant to lend legitimacy to Focolare, Cursillo, the "Catholic" Charismatic Renewal, Opus Dei, Cursillo, the
Sant'Egidio Community, the Shalom Catholic Community, the Chemin Neuf
Community, the International Community of Faith and Light, Regnum
Christi, Communion and Liberation, the Emmanuel Community, the Seguimi
Lay Group of Human-Christian Promotion, and, among many, many others,
the Neocatechumenal Way which have made the counterfeit church of
conciliarism into little more than an ape of the High Church, Low Church paradigm from which some "Anglo-Catholics" have fled recently, a collection of
groups and individuals who are not characterized by "a perfect union and
agreement of wills."
Let me reiterate once again that John Paul II and Benedict XVI have been fervent apostles of the "New Theology," which is nothing other than a repackaged form of Modernism,
and it is this that they have sought to "canonize" by "beatifying" and "canonizing" their own.
No one can hold the
ideas that they have propagated or have said or done the things that
they have and remain 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,
The need of this divinely instituted means for
the preservation of unity, about which we speak is urged by St. Paul in
his epistle to the Ephesians. In this he first admonishes them to
preserve with every care concord of minds: "Solicitous to keep the unity
of the Spirit in the bond of peace" (Eph. iv., 3, et seq.). And as
souls cannot be perfectly united in charity unless minds agree in faith,
he wishes all to hold the same faith: "One Lord, one faith," and this
so perfectly one as to prevent all danger of error: "that henceforth we
be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every
wind of doctrine by the wickedness of men, by cunning craftiness, by
which they lie in wait to deceive" (Eph. iv., 14): and this he teaches
is to be observed, not for a time only - "but until we all meet in the
unity of faith...unto the measure of the age of the fullness of Christ"
(13). But, in what has Christ placed the primary principle, and the
means of preserving this unity? In that - "He gave some Apostles - and
other some pastors and doctors, for the perfecting of the saints, for
the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ"
(11-12). (Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum, June 29, 1896.)
In other words, there is no
such thing as an "irreducible" minimum number of truths that one must
hold in order to be a Catholic. It is all or nothing. There is zero
evidence from our Church Fathers and there is zero doctrinal support for
any contention that one remains a Catholic by holding a certain number
of unspecified truths while defecting from others. It is all or nothing.
Never lose sight of the fact that John Paul II was a committed Vatican II revolutionary. He told us this the day after his "election" in 1978. I didn't want to believe him. I thought that he just "had" to say these things, that the Polish "pope" was going to restore the Church after the nightmare that was the "pontificate" of Paul VI. Nope. The Polish "pope" meant every one of these words. Every single one of them:
First of all, we wish to point out the unceasing importance of the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council, and we accept the definite duty of assiduously bringing it into affect. Indeed, is not that universal Council a kind of milestone as it were, an event of the utmost importance in the almost two thousand year history of the Church, and consequently in the religious and cultural history of the world?
However, as the Council is not limited to the documents alone, neither is it completed by the ways applying it which were devised in these post-conciliar years. Therefore we rightly consider that we are bound by the primary duty of most diligently furthering the implementation of the decrees and directive norms of that same Universal Synod. This indeed we shall do in a way that is at once prudent and stimulating. We shall strive, in particular, that first of all an appropriate mentality may flourish. Namely, it is necessary that, above all, outlooks must be at one with the Council so that in practice those things may be done that were ordered by it, and that those things which lie hidden in it or—as is usually said—are "implicit" may become explicit in the light of the experiments made since then and the demands of changing circumstances. Briefly, it is necessary that the fertile seeds which the Fathers of the Ecumenical Synod, nourished by the word of God, sowed in good ground (cf. Mt 13: 8, 23)—that is, the important teachings and pastoral deliberations should be brought to maturity in that way which is characteristic of movement and life. (First Urbi et Orbi Radio message, October 17, 1978.)
Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II kept his word to be faithful to the "Second" Vatican Council. Perhaps that is reason enough for the conciliarists to "beatify" him no matter his track record of "episcopal" appointments and the protection of men who were as morally derelict in the discharge of their duties as he was of his. Revolutionaries must always seek to lionize their own.
I was a fool for not believing that Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II meant every word of what he had uttered on October 17, 1978. I was a fool for ignoring all of the other signs that we right in front of my eyes until I decided to open them once and for all following the "altar girls" fiasco in 1994, at which point I became, even though I did not realize it at the time, a member of the "resist and recognize" movement. Even then, however, my eyes weren't entirely open as it did not dawn on me that the articles that I wrote critical of "John Paul II's" "apologies" and his sitting as an equal with the Grand Rabbi of Jerusalem and a Mohammedan imam on March 25, 2000, and his refusal to discipline the "bishops" responsible for the protection of perverted clergy (see Time For Plain Talk, written in my early resist and recognize days) simply would not be necessary under the pontificate of a true and legitimate Successor of Saint Peter.
As I have noted in several articles in the past four years, those in the Motu communities and other venues using the modernized version of the Immemorial Mass of Tradition will have to start "celebrating" the feasts of some of the "saints" "canonized" by the counterfeit church of conciliarism, quite possibly including that of the soon-to-be "Blessed" "Pope John Paul the Great." This "feast" will not be an "optional memorial," to use the parlance of the Novus Ordo rubrics. We will find out soon enough, within a matter of weeks whether Karol Wojtyla's "feast day" will be ranked as a "feast," which is a rank higher than that of a mandatory "memorial" in the new liturgical order of things in the conciliar world. This would be a bitter pill for at least some priests and presbyters in the Motu world to swallow. Swallow it they will, however, just as they swallow the continued offenses given to God by Ratzinger/Benedict as he esteems the symbols of false religions and praises their places of worship as "sacred." Swallow it they will, although many of them are upset with the pending "beatification."
How are priests and presbyters in the Motu world of conciliarism going to refuse to "celebrate" an "obligatory feast" that will be mandated for use even in the Motu communities, especially one most of them know that the Catholic Church would never beatify or canonize a man who knowingly turned a blind eye to perverse abuse visited upon so many innocent souls, many of whom left all semblance of the Faith entirely as a result, by his "bishops" and "priests," going so far as to reward fellow protectors of the perverse such as Bernard "Cardinal" Law with promotions or prestigious sinecures in Rome? How long is it possible to suspend one's outrage in the face of the wreckage done to the souls for whom Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ shed every single drop of His Most Precious Blood on the wood of the Holy Cross. For what? For ecclesiastical "safety"? For "recognition" by men who publicly offend and blaspheme God and thus do grave damage to souls above and beyond their protection of the perverse and decadent within their ranks? For Wales? For the "Wales" of being in "good standing" with men who are not in good standing with Christ the King? For what? For what?
Obviously, those who of us who attach ourselves to true bishops and true priests in the Catholic underground who make no concessions to conciliarism or its false officials will not be celebrating apostasy and moral dereliction on Low Sunday. What we should be doing is spending time in prayer before Our Lord in His Real Presence, and I would most humbly ask our traditional clergy to consider offering a period of solemn exposition of Our Lord in the Most Blessed Sacrament on Low Sunday, May 1, 2011, as the faithful are begged to pray in reparation for the offenses given to God by the false "pontiffs" and especially for the "beatification" of Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II by a fellow apostate. Perhaps part of a period of reparation would include an outdoor procession, weather permitting, to a statue of Our Lady as her Most Holy Rosary, which was "updated" by Wojtyla/John Paul II in 2002, is prayed. These are just suggestions from a truly miserable sinner who is in constant need of making reparation for his own many sins on a daily basis as the consecrated slave of Christ the King through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary our Immaculate Queen.
We pray to Our Lady every day,. confident that the Triumph of her Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart will vanquish the foes of the Faith in the world and in the counterfeit church of conciliarism once and for all. Every Rosary we pray, offered to the Most Holy Trinity through that same Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, will plant a few seeds for this triumph, especially as we spend time in prayer before her Divine Son's Real Presence in the Most Blessed Sacrament.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon.
Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!
Saint Joseph, Patron of Departing Souls, pray for us.
Saints Peter and Paul, pray for us.
