Look at this spectacle.
This is all a hoax that is far worse that Richard and Mayumi Heene's "Balloon Boy" of four years ago as this hoax mocked Christ the King on the day His universal Social Kingship over men and their nations was celebrated in the Catholic Church, which is in the catacombs at this time, around the world.
The counterfeit church of conciliarism is such hoax that over three thousand men and women leave the religious life every year. After all, why remain under the evangelical counsels, such as they are in the fake, phony fraud conciliar sect, when one can live in the world and continue to dress and act and go about one's daily basis as he or she did in a religious community?
The secretary of the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life said in an October 29 address that over 3,000 men and women religious leave the consecrated life each year.
In the address – a portion of which was reprinted in L’Osservatore Romano – Archbishop José Rodríguez Carballo said that statistics from his Congregation, as well as the Congregation for the Clergy, indicate that over the past five years, 2,624 religious have left the religious life annually. When one takes into account additional cases handled by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, the number tops 3,000.
The prelate, who led the Order of Friars Minor from 2003 until his April 2013 curial appointment, said that the majority of cases occur at a “relatively young age.” The causes, he said, include “absence of spiritual life,” “loss of a sense of community,” and a “loss of sense of belonging to the Church” – a loss manifest in dissent from Catholic teaching on “women priests and sexual morality.”
Other causes include “affective problems,” including heterosexual relationships that continue into marriage and homosexual relationships, which are “most obvious in men, but also present, more often than you think, between women.”
The world, the prelate continued, is undergoing profound changes from modernity to postmodernity – from fixed reference points to uncertainty, doubt, and insecurity. In a market-oriented world, “everything is measured and evaluated according to the utility and profitability, even people.” It is “a world where everything is soft,” where “there is no place for sacrifice, nor for renunciation.”
In a culture of neo-individualism and subjectivism, he added, “the individual is the measure of everything,” and people feel “unique in excellence.” “Modern man talks a lot” but “cannot communicate in depth.”
The solution, he said, is a renewed attention to the centrality the Triune God in religious life, which in turn “brings with it the gift of oneself to others.” There must be a clear emphasis on the “radical nature of the Gospel,” rather than the “number of members or the maintenance of works.” (Vatican Revolutionary Blind to the Truth.)
More often than you think?
Perversion is rife in the religious houses and convents of communities, once strongly Catholic, now in the control of the conciliar revolutionaries. This is not news.
Moreover, Jose Rodriguez Carballo, whom you first met seven months in Francis The Feminist, was, as noted in the article above, the General Minister of Orders of Friars Minor for ten years until appointed to the conciliar for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life. Did Carballo do anything to clean up this nest of Eastern "mysticism," feminism, environmentalism and perversion? Hardly. Carballo did nothing to discipline the Franciscans who issued the following statement after William "Cardinal" Levada slapped the wrists of the Leadership Conference on Women Religious nineteen months ago:
Leaders from the seven Franciscan provinces in the U.S. publicly backed a group of American nuns on Thursday, calling a Vatican crackdown on the women "excessive."
The Franciscan friars are believed to be the first Catholic religious order to voice support for the Leadership Conference of Women Religious since the Vatican announced a full-scale makeover of the group in April.
The Vatican said the LCWR, which represents most of the nation's 57,000 nuns, does not adequately advocate against gay marriage, abortion and women's ordination.
The Vatican's "doctrinal assessment" also faulted the sisters for sponsoring conferences that featured "a prevalence of certain radical feminist themes incompatible with the Catholic faith."
Noting that many members of LCWR belong to female Franciscan orders, the friars pledged solidarity with the sisters and called the Vatican assessment "excessive, given the evidence raised."
The sisters have been wrestling with complex contemporary issues, the Franciscans said, and those deliberations should not be equated with disobedience to Catholic doctrine.
"The efforts of LCWR to facilitate honest and faithful dialogue on critical issues of our times must not result in a level of ecclesial oversight that could, in effect, quash all further discernment," the Franciscans said.
Catholics since the Middle Ages have disagreed about how to apply church doctrine to public policy, the friars argued, and seldom were those disputes deemed "equivalent to questioning the authority of the Church's magisterium."
Many church observers suspect the Vatican crackdown was at least partially a response to prominent Catholic sisters' support for President Obama's health care overhaul, despite bishops' objections.
"Rather than excessive oversight of LCWR, perhaps a better service to the people of God might be a renewed effort to articulate the nuances of our complex moral tradition," the friars said.
The LCWR itself has called the Vatican's assessment "unsubstantiated" and a source of "scandal and pain." (Franciscan friars back American nuns in Vatican spat.)
The Franciscans who issued this statement last year, of course, are in perfect harmony with the "theology" of the likes of Jorge Mario Bergoglio and Oscar Maradiaga Rodriguez, whose revolutionary outline for the Bergoglio "Petrine Ministry" is being critiqued (see Commissar of Antichrist Speaks, part one and Commissar of Antichrist Speaks, part two; part three will be completed for tomorrow's posting, God willing and Our Lady interceding).
It must also be remembered that Jose Rodriguez Carballo is the conciliar official who is persecuting the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate who have now petitioned Bergoglio himself to have an exclusive to offer/stage the 2013 version of the Immemorial Mass of Tradition:
To read the decree
issued by the Vatican congregation for religious shortly before the
voyage of Francis in Brazil, with the explicit approval of the pope
himself, one must agree more with the latter than with the former.
The decree bears the date of July 11, 2013, the protocol
number 52741/2012, and the signatures of the prefect of the
congregation, Cardinal Joao Braz de Aviz, a focolarino, and of the
secretary of the same congregation, Archbishop José Rodríguez Carballo, a
Braz de Aviz is the only high-ranking official in the curia
of Brazilian nationality, and because of this he has accompanied
Francis on his voyage to Rio de Janeiro. He has a reputation as a
progressive, although that of a scatterbrain fits him better. And he
will probably be one of the first to go when the reform of the curia
announced by Francis takes shape.
Rodríguez Carballo instead enjoys the pope's complete
trust. His promotion as second-in-command of the congregation was backed
by Francis himself at the beginning of his pontificate.
It is difficult, therefore, to think that pope Bergoglio
was unaware of what he was approving when he was presented with the
decree before its publication.
The decree installs an apostolic commissioner - in the
person of the Capuchin Fidenzio Volpi - at the head of all the
communities of the congregation of the Franciscan Friars of the
And this in itself is cause for astonishment.
Because the Franciscans of the Immaculate are one of the most
flourishing religious communities born in the Catholic Church in recent
decades, with male and female branches, with many young vocations,
spread over several continents and with a mission in Argentina as well.
They want to be faithful to tradition, in full respect for
the magisterium of the Church. So much so that in their communities they
celebrate Masses both in the ancient rite and in the modern rite, as
moreover do hundreds of religious communities around the world - the
Benedictines of Norcia, to give just one example - applying the spirit
and the letter of the motu proprio “Summorum Pontificum" of Benedict
But precisely this was contested by a core group of
internal dissidents, who appealed to the Vatican authorities
complaining of the excessive propensity of their congregation to
celebrate the Mass in the ancient rite, with the effect of creating
exclusion and opposition within the communities, of undermining internal
unity and, worse, of weakening the more general "sentire cum Ecclesia."
The Vatican authorities responded by sending an apostolic
visitor one year ago. And now comes the appointment of the commissioner.
But what is most astonishing are the last five lines of the decree of July 11:
"In addition to the above, the Holy Father Francis
has directed that every religious of the congregation of the Franciscan
Friars of the Immaculate is required to celebrate the liturgy according
to the ordinary rite and that, if the occasion should arise, the use of
the extraordinary form (Vetus Ordo) must be explicitly authorized by the
competent authorities, for every religious and/or community that makes
The astonishment stems from the fact that what is decreed
contradicts the dispositions given by Benedict XVI, which for the
celebration of the Mass in the ancient rite “sine populo" demand no
previous request for authorization whatsoever:
"Ad talem celebrationem secundum unum alterumve Missale,
sacerdos nulla eget licentia, nec Sedis Apostolicae nec Ordinarii sui"
While for Masses "cum populo" they set out a few conditions, but always guaranteeing the freedom to celebrate.
In general, against a decree of a Vatican congregation it
is possible to have recourse to the supreme tribunal of the apostolic
signatura, today headed by a cardinal, the American Raymond Leo Burke,
considered a friend by the traditionalists.
But if the decree is the object of approval in a
specific form on the part of the pope, as it seems to be in this case,
recourse is not admitted
The Franciscans of the Immaculate will have to comply with
the prohibition on celebrating the Mass in the ancient rite beginning
Sunday, August 11.
And now what will happen, not only among them but in the whole Church?
It was the conviction of Benedict XVI that "the two forms
of the usage of the Roman Rite can be mutually enriching." He had
explained this in the heartfelt letter to the bishops of the whole world
with which he had accompanied the motu proprio "Summorum Pontificum":
But from now on this is no longer the case, at least not for all. For
the Franciscans of the Immaculate, forced to celebrate the Mass only in
the modern form, there remains just one way to take to heart what
Benedict XVI also hoped: to "demonstrate" in this form as well, "more
powerfully than has been the case hitherto, the sacrality which attracts
many people to the former usage."
The fact is that one pillar of
the pontificate of Joseph Ratzinger has been cracked. By an exception
that many fear - or hope - will soon become the rule. (Sandro Magister, For the First Time, Francis Contradicts Benedict.)
Jose Rodriguez Carballo cannot figure out that the cause of the defections of over three thousand men and women from religious communities rife with heresy, apostasy, sacrilege, natural and unnatural sins against Holy Purity, pantheism, environmentalism, Communism, Eastern mysticism, feminism and blasphemy is the result of the very conciliar revolution of which he, Jose Rodriguez Carballo, who was born in 1953, the same year as my only brother (who is two years, eighteen days my junior), has been and continues to be an integral player.
The principal player, however, in the conciliar revolution for the past nearly eight months, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, has had a very busy week repeating each of his usual hobby horses at the daily sessions of the Ding Dong School Of Apostasy at the Casa Santa Marta as he goes about bravely slaying one straw man after another. One of these screeds, given on Tuesday, October 29, 2013,dovetailed perfectly with Oscar Andres Maradiaga Rodriguez's lectures in Irving, Texas, on Friday, October 25, 2013, the Feast of Saints Chrysanthus and Daria, and in Miami, Florida, on Monday, October 28, 2013, the Feast of Saints Simon and Jude:
"The first Christians "depicted it as an anchor: hope was an anchor, an
anchor tied to the banks" of the afterlife. And our life is just walking
towards this anchor. The question comes to mind: where we anchored to
ourselves, each of us? Are we anchored right there on the shore of that
far away ocean or we are anchored to an artificial lagoon that we
created, with our rules, our behaviour, our rhythms, our clericalism,
our non-ecclesial ecclesiastical attitudes, huh? Are we anchored there?
Everything comfortable, all secure, huh? That is not hope. Where is my
heart anchored, there in this man-made lagoon, with really impeccable
behaviour...,” Francis said.
Then the Pope spoke about another symbol of hope: childbirth: “We
are waiting - he observed - this is a delivery. And hope is in this
dynamic", of "giving life." But, he added, "the first fruits of the
Spirit can not be seen". Yet I know that "the Spirit works". He works in
us "like a mustard seed, that inside is full of life, strength,
progressing" to become tree. The Spirit works like yeast. This, he
added, "is how the Spirit works: you do not see it, but it is there.
It's a grace we must ask for.”
"It is one thing to live in hope, because in hope we are saved and
another thing to live as good Christians, and nothing more. Waiting with
ardent expectation for the revelation or living true to the
commandments, being anchored to the shore of the beyond or parked in our
own artificial lagoon.”
Finally, Francis thought of Mary, “a young girl, when, after she
heard she was to be a mother changed her attitude and went, and helped
and sang a song of praise. When a woman becomes pregnant she is a woman,
but she is never (just) a woman is a mother. And hope has something of
this. It changes our attitude: we are who we are, but we are not only
that, we are looking towards there, anchored there." (Ding Dong School Session on October 29, 2013.)
How can one not feel physically ill when reading Bergoglio's words blaspheming Our Lady.
No, this is not the first time that Bergoglio has denied the doctrinal effects of Our Lady's Immaculate Conception, which include her Perfect Integrity, in order to project onto her the disorderly orderly inclinations of one who suffers from vestigial after-effects of Original Sin. Bergoglio has done this several times before in the past eight months, demonstrating once again that he is in complete accord with his predecessor, Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, who did so in his three-volume work of heresy, Jesus of Nazareth, and as he gave his personal approval for the world premiere of the Protestant-produced The Nativity Story to be shown at the Paul The Sick Audience Hall in the Vatican on November 26, 2006, the First Sunday of Advent.
Nonetheless, however, Bergoglio's blasphemy against Our Lady is still sickening beyond words, especially as he is trying to say that we must change our "attitudes" about the "past" just as he contends that she did at the Annunciation.
The entirety of the passage quoted just above indicates yet again just how obsessed Jorge Mario Bergoglio is in his Lieutenant Philip Gerard-like quest to hunt down and eradicate all remaining vestiges of recognizable Catholicism in the counterfeit church of conciliarism.
Bergoglio once again--and I have lost track of how many times as he sometimes does this several times a week, if not two or three times on the same day--attempted to justify his own revolutionary agenda by the use of his disordered, undisciplined, demagogic attacks on those who are "anchored" in o an artificial lagoon that we
created, with our rules, our behaviour, our rhythms, our clericalism,
our non-ecclesial ecclesiastical attitude" as we keep ourselves in a "comfortable" "man-made lagoon." Catholics must be "open" to where the "spirit" leads them. Unfortunately for Bergoglio, though, his "spirit" is not of God, it is of Antichrist.
As a demagogue, you see, Jorge Mario Bergoglio uses his visceral attacks as he is incapable of true scholarly discipline. His is a revolution of emotion and the senses, which is why the more disciplined revolutionary agenda outlined by Oscar Andres Rodrigues Maradiaga Rodriguez is far more significant, especially when one considers the fact that Bergoglio has become boringly predictable with his daily screeds, the extent of which is impossible for one person to critique on a daily basis without going insane.
Bergoglio, however, is a proud little demon. He is good enough to show us exactly where his "spirit" leads him, providing us with bold displays of his desire for a "new way" to "unite" "believers" and unbelievers.
Bergoglio's spirit was on full display yesterday, the Commemoration of All Souls, as he staged the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo service at the Campo Verrano Cemetery, in white vestments, of course, as the color black is frowned upon in the conciliar church, by debuting yet another so-called "Resurrexifix":
(As found on: Rorate-Caeli Blogspot)
White vestments in alleged Masses for the dead.
Well, this is what Pope Pius XII had to say in Mediator Dei, November 20, 1947, about that kind of "spirit," which is nothing other than the recrudescence of the "spirit" of the illegal Synod of Pistoia whose proportions were condemned by Pope Pius VI in Auctorem Fidei, August 28, 1794:
Assuredly it is a wise and most laudable thing to
return in spirit and affection to the sources of the sacred liturgy. For
research in this field of study, by tracing it back to its origins,
contributes valuable assistance towards a more thorough and careful
investigation of the significance of feast-days, and of the meaning of
the texts and sacred ceremonies employed on their occasion. But it is
neither wise nor laudable to reduce everything to antiquity by every
possible device. Thus, to cite some instances, one would be
straying from the straight path were he to wish the altar restored to
its primitive table form; were he to want black excluded as a color for
the liturgical vestments; were he to forbid the use of sacred images and
statues in Churches; were he to order the crucifix so designed that the
divine Redeemer's body shows no trace of His cruel sufferings; and
lastly were he to disdain and reject polyphonic music or singing in
parts, even where it conforms to regulations issued by the Holy See.
Clearly no sincere
Catholic can refuse to accept the formulation of Christian doctrine more
recently elaborated and proclaimed as dogmas by the Church, under the
inspiration and guidance of the Holy Spirit with abundant fruit for
souls, because it pleases him to hark back to the old formulas. No more
can any Catholic in his right senses repudiate existing legislation of
the Church to revert to prescriptions based on the earliest sources of
canon law. Just as obviously unwise and mistaken is the zeal of one who
in matters liturgical would go back to the rites and usage of antiquity,
discarding the new patterns introduced by disposition of divine
Providence to meet the changes of circumstances and situation.
This way of acting
bids fair to revive the exaggerated and senseless antiquarianism to
which the illegal Council of Pistoia gave rise. It likewise attempts to
reinstate a series of errors which were responsible for the calling of
that meeting as well as for those resulting from it, with grievous harm
to souls, and which the Church, the ever watchful guardian of the
"deposit of faith" committed to her charge by her divine Founder, had
every right and reason to condemn. For perverse designs and ventures of
this sort tend to paralyze and weaken that process of sanctification by
which the sacred liturgy directs the sons of adoption to their Heavenly
Father of their souls' salvation. (Pope Pius XII, Mediator Dei, November 20, 1947. See also Francis The Ecclesiastical Agitator.)
Fifty-five years of propagandizing in behalf of a false religion in this time of the Great Apostasy that the Order of Friars Minor in conciliar captivity have now issued a prayer card to ask Catholics to ask Saint Francis of Assisi AND "Pope Francis" to "pray for us."
Courtesy of Mr. Frank Rega, the author of Saint Francis of Assisi and the Conversion of the Muslims, here is an image of the prayer card:
(See: What's Wrong With This Picture?)
There is, of course, plenty wrong with this photograph just as there is plenty wrong, starting with, say, everything, with conciliarism and its false doctrines, sacrilegious liturgy, corrupted moral teachings and truly man-made pastoral practices that are from the devil and can lead to only one place, Hell itself.
We must have nothing to do with Francis and his Balloon Boyz, and those in the Motu world who think that they can live in their own alternative universe while not bothering too much with the heretics and their balloons ought to reckon with the fact that Bergoglio is coming after each of them in his good time. He will countenance no semblance of "Pelagianism" in his false church. Part of his perverse "mission" to lead everyone in the conciliar sect out of what he thinks is a "man-made" lagoon and into the "joys" of the "Resurrexifix" and white vestments at purported funeral Masses. Yes, indeed, their day is coming very soon, which means that they better have their balloons at the ready or come to break with all human respect and recognize, no matter the cost, that none of this can come from the Catholic Church.
With prayers to the Poor Souls in this month November, especially as we offer our Rosaries for them as the consecrated slaves of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, may the souls who profit from our prayers, penances, mortifications, sacrifices, sufferings, humiliations and good works this month help to provide Holy Mother Church with final relief from her sufferings at this time as we hope that our prayers will bring them such relief by virtue of their speedy entry into Heaven.
