Francis Has More "Surprises" In Store For Us
Thomas A. Droleskey
With a busy daily agenda of conducting his daily sessions of his Ding Dong School of Apostasy and of hosting Talmudic rabbis, which requires him to make sure that the kitchen help at the Casa Santa Marta keep a Kosher kitchen, and of meeting with Sikhs, Lutherans, Methodists, Orthodox, Mohammedans and giving interviews to brother apostates and atheists, Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis just had no time, it appears, to travel to the Cova da Iria near Fatima, Portugal, on the occasion of the ninety-sixth anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun yesterday, Sunday, October 13, 2013, the Twenty-first Sunday after Pentecost and the Commemoration of Saint Edward the Confessor. Thus it is that the statue of Our Lady of Fatima was brought from the Shrine of the Most Holy Trinity in Portugal to the Vatican over the weekend, and we can only pray Rosaries of reparation for the offenses given to her in the process.
Just Another Tool of the "New Evangelization"
Although Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis participated in a prayer vigil in the Piazza di San Pietro on Saturday evening, October 12, 2013, that included a variety of traditional Marian devotions, he uses the Catholic veneer of such events to carefully place his drops of conciliar poison into the minds of those who believe that the mere appearance of Catholicism is enough to "prove" a putative pope's orthodoxy.
It is important to provide a context to understand the simple fact that the weekend's events in the Occupied Vatican on the West Bank of the Tiber River were simply another massive conciliar show designed to advance the heretical "new evangelization" that has nothing to do with seeking with urgency the conversion of non-Catholics to the Catholic Church, outside of which there is no salvation and without which there can be no true social order, and thus has nothing to do with the Mother God, who has specifically sought out the conversion of heretics and infidels at the request of her Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
The conciliar official who presided over Saturday evening's prayer vigil was none other than one "Archbishop" Salvatore Rino Fisichella, the President of the "Pontifical" Council for the New Evangelization.
Who is Salvatore Rino Fisichella?
Well, have you no powers of recollection?
Let me refresh your memories for you.
The conciliarists also get pretty touchy when one
criticizes the "suffering 'pope'" for his committing, in the objective
order of things, Mortal Sins against the First and Second Commandments
by esteeming the symbols of false religions with his own priestly hands
and when he terms their places of false worship as "sacred" to the true
God of Divine Revelation. And this is to say nothing of how touchy
officials in the Vatican become when anyone should question whether
"Pope" John Paul II fulfilled Our Lady's Fatima request for the
consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart with all of the world's
bishops or when anyone should question whether Our Lady's actual Third
Secret has been released. Would anyone care to deny this for the public
record? Can we say the word "suspension" of any priest, whether truly
ordained or not, who has questioned these matters?
The conciliar revolutionaries have also gotten very
touchy over criticism directed at the president of the "Pontifical
Academy for Life," "Archbishop" Rino Fisichella (whose first name is
Salvatore but is referred to most commonly in the media by his middle
name, Rino) who had said last year that the conciliar "bishop" of
Recife, Brazil, Jose Cardoso Sobrinho, who had excommunicated the
physicians who killed the twin preborn babies of a nine year-old girl
was incorrect, making it appear to all the world, especially those who
understand the plain use of language, that he condoned those killings.
Here is just a reminder of a story that I carried earlier this year:
ROME, February 16, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com)
– Archbishop Rino Fisichella, the head of the Vatican’s Pontifical
Academy for Life (PAV), has told the Associated Press that he has no
intention of stepping down after five senior members of the Academy
issued a statement last week expressing their loss of confidence in his
“I won’t respond to these people. Too much space already has been given to them,” Fisichella told AP.
Fisichella’s response follows comments late last
week from Fr. Frederico Lombardi, the head of the Holy See Press Office
and a subordinate of the cardinal Secretary of State Tarcisio Bertone,
who told media that the statement has not been received by either the
pope or Bertone. Lombardi, who has gone on record supporting Fisichella,
told the Catholic News Agency that issuing the statement to the press
was an “astonishing” move.
The author of the statement, Luke Gormally, an
Ordinary Member of the Academy and the former director of the Linacre
Centre for Healthcare Ethics in London, told LSN that he did not intend
to pursue the matter any further.
Gormally told LSN, “Certainly, for the immediate future I have no further action in mind.”
The five signatories to the statement say they believe that Archbishop Fisichella’s speech at the Academy’s
plenary meeting made it clear that he does not grasp the meaning of the
Catholic Church’s absolute prohibition on the killing of unborn children.
His speech, they said, “had the effect of
confirming in the minds of many academicians the impression that we are
being led by an ecclesiastic who does not understand what absolute
respect for innocent human lives entails.” They called this an “absurd”
Fisichella, they said, maintained that the article
he wrote last year, which appeared to condone the abortion of the twin
children of a nine-year-old rape victim in Brazil, had been “vindicated”
by a clarification issued in July 2009 by the Congregation for the
Doctrine of the Faith (CDF).
Fisichella wrote in his article, published in the Vatican’s newspaper L’Osservatore Romano,
that the doctors who aborted the twins did not deserve excommunication
and accused the pro-life local bishop of Recife, Brazil, Jose Cardoso
Sobrinho, of acting hastily and failing to meet the pastoral needs of
“There are others who merit excommunication and our
pardon, not those who have allowed you to live and have helped you to
regain hope and trust,” he wrote.
These assertions were roundly refuted at the time by a statement from
the Brazilian diocese detailing the assistance that the girl and her
family had been receiving from the local priest and the diocese before
she was spirited away by a pro-abortion group for the abortion. This
response was never given space in either the secular press or in
L’Osservatore Romano and no official response to it was ever publicly
made by any office of the Vatican, although Bishop Cardoso was later
honoured for his actions by the pro-life group Human Life International.
Gormally told LSN today that his statement had
originally been meant only as his own response to LSN’s request for
information on the outcome of the PAV plenary meeting, but that later
other members expressed an interest in signing. The group later released
it to other news outlets.
He said he is “content” with the situation as it is
and said that the statement has achieved what it set out to do by
clarifying for the public what he believes the true situation is with
the Academy. The statement said that within the Vatican Curia, it is
“widely perceived” that Fisichella is an “inappropriate” president of
Gormally told AP that an article by
Catholic News Service, in which Fisichella had declared that there was
“harmony” at the PAV plenary meeting, had been a work of deliberate
“disinformation.” The statement, he said, had corrected this situation.
On Friday, February 19, Vatican Spokesman Fr.
Frederico Lombardi said the statement by the five PAV members “was
received neither by the Holy Father, nor by the cardinal Secretary of
State, who would seem to be the natural recipients,” nor, he said, had
it been presented at the plenary assembly of the Pontifical Academy for
Life, “which would have been the natural place to address the matter.”
“It’s a bit strange that persons who are members of
an academy address a request of this kind without addressing it to the
competent authorities. It’s astounding and seems incorrect that such a
document should be given public circulation,” Lombardi said.
However, Fr. Lombardi himself has had a hand in the
growth of the controversy surrounding the PAV and Archbishop
On March 21 2009, just days after Fisichella’s
article was published, Fr. Lombardi, while accompanying the pope on a
visit to Africa, told media that in his speech to Angolan dignitaries
Benedict XVI had in no way intended to condemn “therapeutic abortion.”
In his speech, Pope Benedict had observed, “How bitter the irony of
those who promote abortion as a form of maternal healthcare!”
Lombardi, aware of the growing scandal surrounding
Fisichella’s statements, hastened to assure journalists that the
comments had nothing to do with the Brazilian case, and openly endorsed
He said, “In this regard the considerations of
Archbishop Rino Fisichella apply, when he lamented in L’Osservatore
Romano the hasty declaration of excommunication by the archbishop of
Recife. No extreme case should obscure the true meaning of the remarks
by the Holy Father, who was referring to something quite different … The
Pope absolutely was not talking about therapeutic abortion, and did not
say that this must always be rejected.”
Fr. Lombardi later declined LSN’s direct request for a clarification of his remarks. (Vatican Archbishop, Spokesman Come Out Swinging against Pro-Life Critics; see also So Long to the Fifth Commandment, the Statement of those "Pontifical Academy for Life" members who criticized Fisichella, Dr. Marian Therese Horvat's The Holy See Abandons its Pro-Life Position, and Rotten To The Very Roots.)
See Vatican officials criticized. See Vatican officials circle the
wagons and shoot at the critics. See defections from the Holy Faith up
close and personal. And is Benedict/Ratzinger who has indeed appointed
Fisichella to oversee his "new evangelization" effort? (See Benedict Creates Office to Evangelize the West.) It is impossible to make any of this up. It's just not possible to do so. (As found in: Touchy, Touchy, June 30, 2010.)
Yes, the man who justified what he called a "therapeutic abortion" presided over a Marian prayer vigil.
Too rich for my peasant blood.
Saturday evening's program began with a video message from Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis that was played to the people assembled in the Pizza di San Pietro after it had been introduced by Salvatore Rino Fisichella. The false "pontiff's video message managed to place a few drops of conciliar poison to remind those assembled that the "luminous" mysteries are now an accepted part of Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary:
This evening I am united to all of you in praying the Holy Rosary
and in Eucharistic adoration under the gaze of the Virgin Mary.
Mary’s gaze! How important this is! How many things can we say
with a look! Affection, encouragement, compassion, love, but also disapproval,
envy, pride and even hatred. Often a look says more than words; it says what
words do not or dare not say.
At whom is the Virgin Mary looking? She is looking at each and
every one of us. And how does she look at us? She looks at us as a Mother,
with tenderness, mercy and love. That was how she gazed at her Son Jesus at all
the moments of his life – joyful, luminous, sorrowful, glorious – as we
contemplate in the mysteries of the Holy Rosary, simply and lovingly. (Figure of Antichrist's Video Message to Those Assembled For the -Prayer Vigil at the Shrine of
This is no way to honor the Psalter of the Mother of God.
Moreover, there may be more revolutionary changes to the Our Lady's Psalter, her Most Holy Rosary, which she gave to Saint Dominic de Guzman in 1208 to fight the Albigensian heresy, if a proposal made by a member of Opus Dei (see Not the Work of God) manages to sprout legs and wins the approval of Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis, a man who is constantly telling us about "God's surprises" in order to better condition Catholics yet attached to the structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism to accept the doctrinal, liturgical, moral, pastoral and structural "surprises" he has in store for them in the coming months and years.
Mr. Juan Carlos Araneta, who has been kind enough to translate four articles on this site into the Spanish language in the past year, provided me with the text below, which he found on a "Facebook" (I don't have such a page and I am not interested in having one) page of an organization that bills itself as Adoremus in Aeternum:
Will Francis/Bergoglio put the proposal into practice? Why not? He seems to like what they did to correct those who usurped Headquarters before him.
A new book suggests supplementing it with new mysteries about the "hidden life" of Jesus; version for non Catholics
The Church has many prayers, but none may be as popular as the Rosary, which has more than fifteen centuries of history and still raises new In the last Book Fair held in Buenos Aires, Juan Carlos Villa Larroudet presented a thorough investigation and a bold proposal: " Complete" the current Rosary with the meditation on the "hidden life" of Jesus and some other changes.
"I discovered that the Rosary is not a prayer to the Virgin but the prayer is recited to God by Our Lady meditating on the life of Jesus. 's A prayer to Jesus," said Villa Laroudet to the Nation . After more than five years of study and consultation with the historical and doctrinal sources, this Buenos Aires engineer and father of ten children also plans to create a new prayer that could be prayed by non-Catholic Christians . He calls it " ecumenical rosary " and gathers fifty phrases of a Carthusian Dominican monk.
They presented their research at the Fair and pose - encapsulated in a book of Agape , El Rosario . History, rediscovery and proposals - a doctor of theology, Father Danilo Eterovic and Doctor in Social Sciences, Isidoro Ruiz Moreno.
Villa Larroudet is a member of Opus Dei, the Sovereign Military Order of Malta and the Confraternity of the Blessed Sacrament based in the Cathedral of Buenos Aires. He accepted the suggestion of Ruiz Moreno share his knowledge in a book on the Rosary, in 2007. Since then traveled in search of the direct sources to the Holy Land, Lourdes, Fatima, Lisieux, Warsaw, convents Dominicans in Toulouse, Rome and Paris. Also made a Charterhouse experience at Ivora in Brazil and a nostalgic visit to Trier. The author intends to send copies of his book to Pope Francis, Benedict XVI and the new Archbishop of Buenos Aires , Mario Poli.
"I think it will be well received because the Church is keen to promote holiness in the laymen. Jesus lived during his hidden life as we, the laity, while working. Secular life is more than that of a priest so to speak . "
Convinced that in the Rosary we meditate the life of Jesus , noted that in the current structure of that sentence missing years of his "hidden life." That is, the facts prior to its public manifestation, at age 33. So Villa Larroudet proposes to add to the joyful, luminous, sorrowful and glorious, the "everyday" , for which he takes the liberty of unifying two mysteries in one and transfer other one to another group. This is the case of the last joyful mystery, which meditates on "Finding Jesus in the temple with the doctors." Villa Larroudet suggests that this is the first of the mysteries of everyday life, but with another name: " Jesus is revealed to his parents." In its place he proposes to incorporate a new mystery: " The Adoration of the Magi."
The second of the everyday mysteries would reflect on when " Jesus returned with his parents to Nazareth" and then, when he says that " Jesus grew in wisdom, age and grace before God and men." The third mystery of the new group, then it would be "Jesus grew in wisdom and in contact with the scriptures." The fourth: " Jesus grows up working as a craftsman. " And fifth: " Jesus grows in grace before God and men exercising charity."
Another change raised by the author is to incorporate bright " triumphant entry of Jesus into Jerusalem " in the place that remembers " the institution of the Eucharist." Transferred the latter to the Sorrowful mysteries group , there flogging join the Lord and the crowning with thorns .
"The rosary that it presents to us is not a path bounded and rigid, but a wide current of great richness and variety," says the foreword of the book by Fr. Emilio Cardenas, specialist in "Mariology." Cardenas followed from Warsaw the investigation of Villa Larroudet's research in which, says the priest, " the Rosary manifests its powerful Biblical substrate, its parallelism with the liturgy, its reference to the prayers of repetition of the first Christians, very profound wealth of the spirituality of the monks and the surprising response of the masses." (As provided by Mr. Juan Carlos Araneta, who found it on the Facebook page of Adoremus in Aeternum. This is the link to the Spanish language original of this article: UN MIEMBRO DEL OPUS JUDEI PROPONE CAMBIOS AL ROSARIO.)
The Rosary is not a prayer to Our Lady?
Well, then, why did Our Lady only pray the Glory be as Saint Bernadette Soubirous prayed the Rosary kneeling in front of her at the Grotto of Massabielle in 1858?
Yes, conciliarists always have to pride themselves in their "discoveries" to tamper, if not destroy, everything to do with the Catholic Faith.
They are not alone in making "discoveries," however, as a review of the remarks that Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis delivered in person on Saturday evening, October 12, 2013, and those he delivered yesterday during the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical service reveals a "discovery" of its very own: not a single mention of the actual content of Our Lady's Fatima Message.
That's right, no word about the consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart.
No word about praying for the conversion of poor sinners by means of her Most Holy Rosary.
Indeed, other than mentioning in his video message that he would pray the Rosary with those assembled in Pizza di San Pietro on Saturday evening, Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis never once uttered any kind of exhortation to pray the Rosary for the conversion of sinners and in reparation for the sins committed against her Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis did not mention anything about the Miracle of the Sun that occurred ninety-six years ago yesterday, and it was impossible for him even to remind those assembled in the Vatican and watching the event on television or live streaming to include the actual words spoken by Our Lady as she appeared in the Cova da Iria near Fatima, Portugal, for the last time:
"I want to tell you that a chapel is to be built here in my honour. I am the Lady of the Rosary. Continue always to pray the Rosary every day. The war is going to end, and the soldiers will soon return to their homes."
Lucia made some requests, being informed that people must amend their lives and ask forgiveness of their sins if they wanted healings or conversions. "Do not offend the Lord our God any more, because He is already so much offended." (Our Lady's words at Fatima.)
No, Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis made no mention whatsoever of the fact that Our Lady herself told Lucia dos Santos that "people must amend their lives and ask forgiveness of their sins if they wanted healings or conversions," adding, "Do not offend the Lord our God any more, because he is already so much offended."
The blaspheming figure of Antichrist, Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis, profane the ninety-sixth anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun to make Our Lady's Fatima apparitions appear to be a "prophetic" call to be "open" to "God's surprises."
No one who is the least bit intellectually honest or who can say that he loves Our Lady and is devoted to her Fatima Message can do and say the things that Jorge Mario Bergoglio says and does as he is offending God greatly, and Our Lady did show Jacinta and Francisco Marto and Lucia do Santos where poor sinners go who die without reforming their lives, Hell, when she appeared to them on July 13, 1917, and asked for devotion to be spread to her Immaculate Heart, calling also for the consecration of Russia to the same Immaculate Heart:
"I want you to come here on the 13th of next month, [August] to continue to pray the Rosary every day in honour of Our Lady of the Rosary, in order to obtain peace for the world and the end of the war, because only she can help you."
"Continue to come here every month. In October, I will tell you who I am and what I want, and I will perform a miracle for all to see and believe."
Lucia made some requests for sick people, to which Mary replied that she would cure some but not others, and that all must say the rosary to obtain such graces, before continuing: "Sacrifice yourselves for sinners, and say many times, especially when you make some sacrifice: O Jesus, it is for love of You, for the conversion of sinners, and in reparation for the sins committed against the Immaculate Heart of Mary."
"You have seen hell where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to my Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. The war is going to end; but if people do not cease offending God, a worse one will break out during the pontificate of Pius XI. When you see a night illumined by an unknown light, know that this is the great sign given you by God that he is about to punish the world for its crimes, by means of war, famine, and persecutions of the Church and of the Holy Father.
"To prevent this, I shall come to ask for the consecration of Russia to my Immaculate Heart, and the Communion of Reparation on the First Saturdays. If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted, and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions of the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, various nations will be annihilated. In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to me and she will be converted, and a period of peace will be granted to the world."
Mary specifically told Lucia not to tell anyone about the secret at this stage, apart from Francisco, before continuing: "When you pray the Rosary, say after each mystery: 'O my Jesus, forgive us, save us from the fire of hell. Lead all souls to heaven, especially those who are most in need.' "
Lucia asked if there was anything more, and after assuring her that there was nothing more, Mary disappeared off into the distance. (Our Lady's words at Fatima.)
Everyone can be presumed to know this?
Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis had the attention of the Catholic world focused on him yesterday, Sunday, October 13, 2013, and he ignored giving Catholics and non-Catholics alike a catechesis on Our Lady's call to pray her Most Holy Rosary, to sacrifice much for sinners, to make reparation for sins and to pray for the conversion of poor sinners.
He did not do so.
Then again, he is full of "surprises," such as placing a beach ball on a jersey from World Youth Day 2013 on the altar of Our Lady in the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore on Monday, July 29, 2013, the Feast of Saint Martha.
Using Our Lady to Prepare Us For More Conciliar Surprises
Here is an excerpt of Jorge Mario Bergoglio's "homily" that he delivered yesterday during the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical service in the Pizza di San Pietro:
Considering Mary in the light of the readings we have just heard, I
would like to reflect with you on three things: first, God surprises us,
second, God asks us to be faithful, and third, God is our strength.
First: God surprises us. The story of Naaman, the commander of the army of the
king of Aram, is remarkable. In order to be healed of leprosy, he turns
to the prophet of God, Elisha, who does not perform magic or demand
anything unusual of him, but asks him simply to trust in God and to wash
in the waters of the river. Not, however, in one of the great rivers
of Damascus, but in the little stream of the Jordan. Naaman is left
surprised, even taken aback. What kind of God is this who asks for
something so simple? He wants to turn back, but then he goes ahead, he
immerses himself in the Jordan and is immediately healed (cf. 2 Kg
5:1-4). There it is: God surprises us. It is precisely in poverty, in
weakness and in humility that he reveals himself and grants us his
love, which saves us, heals us and gives us strength. He asks us only to
obey his word and to trust in him.
This was the experience of the
Virgin Mary. At the message of the angel, she does not hide her
surprise. It is the astonishment of realizing that God, to become man,
had chosen her, a simple maid of Nazareth. Not someone who lived in a
palace amid power and riches, or one who had done extraordinary things,
but simply someone who was open to God and put her trust in him, even
without understanding everything: “Here I am, the servant of the Lord;
let it be with me according to your word” (Lk 1:38). That was her
answer. God constantly surprises us, he bursts our categories, he wreaks
havoc with our plans. And he tells us: trust me, do not be afraid, let
yourself be surprised, leave yourself behind and follow me!
us all ask ourselves whether we are afraid of what God might ask, or of
what he does ask. Do I let myself be surprised by God, as Mary was, or
do I remain caught up in my own safety zone: in forms of material,
intellectual or ideological security, taking refuge in my own projects
and plans? Do I truly let God into my life? How do I answer him? (Antipope consecrates world to immaculate heart of Mary.)
Leaving aside Bergoglio's description of Our Lady's reaction to Saint Gabriel the Archangel for a follow-up commentary in a few days, suffice it to note for the moment that he meant to "set up" his listeners to convince them that they must be as ready to accept "surprises" from God as he says Our Lady was, including each and every major "surprise" he means to announce and then implement as he puts the final touches on the One World Ecumenical Church. (See, for example, Francis Rallies The Forces Of Antichrist).
One of those "surprises" includes in the utterly unsurprising announcement that the Anglican "ordinariate" established by Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI in Anglicanorum Coetibus, November 4, 2009, would be permitted to use a prayer composed by the arch-heretic Bishop Thomas Cranmer, who used his Lutheran theology to implement a full scale Protestant Revolution in England following King Henry VIII's definitive break with Rome in 1534 with Parliamentary passage of the Act of Supremacy and presided over the writing of liturgical books that were deemed to be heretical by Pope Saint Pius V in Regnans in Excelsis, March 5, 1570.
Here is a Vatican Insider report on this utterly unsurprising development:
On Thursday 10 October, the Personal Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham, a diocese immediately subject to the Holy See which Benedict XVI created for Anglicans who decide to enter back into communion with Rome, will now have its very own liturgical rite. Mgr. Keith Newton, the former Anglican bishop who heads the Ordinariate, will preside a Mass with the community’s new Missal at 6.30 pm in the Church of Our Lady of the Assumption and St Gregory, in London’s Soho area. The text has been approved by the Congregation for Divine Worship which incorporates elements of the Anglican tradition.
In the Apostolic Constitution Anglicanorum Coetibus, Benedict XVI specified that Anglicans would be able to enter into communion with the Catholic Church while maintaining aspects of the Anglican spiritual and liturgical tradition that are “a treasure to be shared”. This principle was enforced by the Vatican when it approved the Ordinariate’s very own rite for the celebration of marriages and funerals. But now that a new Missal is about to come into official use, the process of integration is complete. The new liturgical rite includes both material from the Anglican Book of Common Prayer - the 1662 text which became the main point of reference for prayer in the Anglican Church - and the Roman Rite followed by the Catholic Church.
What is particularly interesting is that the Ordinariate’s liturgy also contains prayers written by former Archbishop of Canterbury, Thomas Cranmer, who had a part to play in the separation of the English Church from union with the Holy See during the reign of Henry VIII and is considered the father of Anglican spirituality. Cranmer was burnt at the stake in Oxford on 1556 during Queen Mary of England’s brief attempt to restore Roman Catholicism. The approved rite also includes a number of traditional English hymns by composers such as Howells, Elgar and Bairstow. The Roman Rite is prevalent in those areas of the Missal where ambiguities could have arisen in relation to Catholic theological doctrine on the Eucharistic presence.
After communion with Rome was official, some suggested that the Ordinariate of Our Lady of Walsingham should adopt the Sarum Rite, used at Britain’s Salisbury cathedral before the Reformation. Instead, it opted for a rite that recognised the spiritual fruits of the Anglican tradition, as Mgr. Newton had explained at the international “Sacra Liturgia” conference in Rome last June. The Ordinariate’s priests will not be obliged to use the new Missal. They will also be able to celebrate Mass according to the Roman Rite in both its ordinary and extraordinary forms reintroduced by Benedict XVI in the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum. ( Ordinariate has a new text for Liturgical Service.)
This is in full conformity with the very letter of Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI's "apostolic constitution, Anglicanorum Coetibus:
III. Without excluding liturgical celebrations according to the Roman
Rite, the Ordinariate has the faculty to celebrate the Holy Eucharist
and the other Sacraments, the Liturgy of the Hours and other liturgical
celebrations according to the liturgical books proper to the Anglican
tradition, which have been approved by the Holy See, so as to maintain
the liturgical, spiritual and pastoral traditions of the Anglican
Communion within the Catholic Church, as a precious gift nourishing the
faith of the members of the Ordinariate and as a treasure to be shared. (Anglicanorum Coetibus.)
This is what Pope Saint Pius V had to say about the supposed "pope of tradition's" efforts to maintain the "liturgical, spiritual and pastoral "traditions" a heretical and schismatic sect that was born in the blood of over 72,000 Catholics, whose deaths were called for and applauded by Thomas Cranmer, who got what he deserved at the hands of Queen Mary in 1556 during the Catholic restoration in England that ended with the queen's death in 1558:
Prohibiting with a strong hand the use of the true religion, which after
its earlier overthrow by Henry VIII (a deserter therefrom) Mary, the
lawful queen of famous memory, had with the help of this See restored, she has followed and embraced the errors of the heretics.
She has removed the royal Council, composed of the nobility of England,
and has filled it with obscure men, being heretics; oppressed the
followers of the Catholic faith; instituted false preachers and
ministers of impiety; abolished the sacrifice of the mass, prayers,
fasts, choice of meats, celibacy, and Catholic ceremonies; and has
ordered that books of manifestly heretical content be propounded to the
whole realm and that impious rites and institutions after the rule of
Calvin, entertained and observed by herself, be also observed by her
subjects. She has dared to eject bishops, rectors of churches
and other Catholic priests from their churches and benefices, to bestow
these and other things ecclesiastical upon heretics, and to determine
spiritual causes; has forbidden the prelates, clergy and people to
acknowledge the Church of Rome or obey its precepts and canonical
sanctions; has forced most of them to come to terms with her wicked
laws, to abjure the authority and obedience of the pope of Rome, and to
accept her, on oath, as their only lady in matters temporal and
spiritual; has imposed penalties and punishments on those who would not
agree to this and has exacted then of those who persevered in the unity
of the faith and the aforesaid obedience; has thrown the Catholic
prelates and parsons into prison where many, worn out by long
languishing and sorrow, have miserably ended their lives. All these
matter and manifest and notorious among all the nations; they are so
well proven by the weighty witness of many men that there remains no
place for excuse, defense or evasion. (Regnans in Excelsis, the decree issued by Pope Saint Pius V on March 5, 1570, excommunicating Queen Elizabeth I, Queen Mary's half-sister.)
No, the decision announced on Thursday, October 10, 2013, the Feast of Saint Francis Borgia, to permit the Anglican transferees to conciliarism use prayers composed by Thomas Cranmer is not surprising at all.
Indeed, there is little that is "surprising" about conciliarism, including the blasphemous "prayer of consecration" that Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis composed for use yesterday
An Utterly Blasphemous "Consecration"
Here is the text of Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis's utterly blasphemous "consecration" of the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary:
Holy Mary Virgin of Fatima, with renewed gratitude for your maternal presence we join our voice to that of all the generations who call you blessed. We celebrate in you the works of God, who never tires of looking down with mercy upon humanity, afflicted with the wound of sin, to heal it and save it.
Accept with the benevolence of a Mother the act of consecration that we perform today with confidence, before this image of you that is so dear to us. We are certain that each of us is precious in your eyes and that nothing of all that lives in our hearts is unknown to you.
We let ourselves be touched by your most sweet regard and we welcome the consoling caress of your smile.
Hold our life in your arms: bless and strengthen every desire for good; revive and nourish faith; sustain and enlighten hope; awaken and animate charity; guide all of us along the path of holiness.
Teach us your own preferential love for the little and the poor, for the excluded and the suffering, for sinners and the downhearted: bring everyone under your protection and entrust everyone to your beloved Son, Our Lord Jesus.
Amen. (Absent a copy of this text on the Vatican website, one was found at: The Call to Fatima, a conciliar-friendly website.)
Every desire for good?
What about sanctity?
"Preferential love for the little and the poor"?
Please notice how Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis uses the very language of one of the progenitors of "liberation theology," Father Gustavo Gutierrez, to claim that Our Lady has a "preferential love for the little and the poor."
Each of us is little and poor in the eyes of the sinless Mother of God. She prays for each of us to save our souls as members of the Catholic Church. She has nothing to do with conciliarism's "preferential option for the poor" that Giovanni Montini/ Paul The Sick accepted while address the Conference of Latin American "Bishops" (CELAM) in Medellin, Colombia, on August 24, 1968, and that he made all his own in Octagesima Adveniens, May 15, 1971:
23. Through the statement of the rights of man and the seeking for
international agreements for the application of these rights, progress has been
made towards inscribing these two aspirations in deeds and structures (16).
Nevertheless various forms of discrimination continually reappear-ethnic
cultural, religious, political and so on. In fact, human rights are still too
often disregarded, if not scoffed at, or else they receive only formal
recognition. In many cases legislation does not keep up with real situations. Legislation is necessary, but it is not sufficient for setting up true
relationships of justice and equity. In teaching us charity, the Gospel
instructs us in the preferential respect due to the poor and the special
situation they have in society: the more fortunate should renounce some of their
rights so as to place their goods more generously at the service of others. If,
beyond legal rules, there is really no deeper feeling of respect for and service
to others, then even equality before the law can serve as an alibi for flagrant
discrimination, continued exploitation and actual contempt. Without a renewed
education in solidarity, an overemphasis of equality can give rise to an
individualism in which each one claims his own rights without wishing to be
answerable for the common good.
In this field, everyone sees the highly important contribution of the
Christian spirit, which moreover answers man's yearning to be loved. "Love for
man, the prime value of the earthly order" ensures the conditions for peace,
both social peace and international peace, by affirming our universal
brotherhood (17). (Giovanni Montini/Paul The Sick, Octagesima Adveniens, May 15, 1971.)
This was nothing other than an attempt to graft a Marxist diatribe onto the Gospel of the Divine Redeemer, Christ the King, and it had nothing to do with commemorating the eightieth anniversary of Pope Leo XIII's Rerum Novarum, May 15, 1891.
Indeed, the so-called "preferential option for the poor" that Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis tried so blasphemously to lay at the doorstep of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary and to graft it onto her Fatima Message, which called for the consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart, actually is an effort on the part of the adversary himself to continue to spread the errors of Russia that have enveloped almost every nation on the face of this earth.
One will notice as well that there is no mention of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in the alleged "consecration" or "entrustment" uttered yesterday by Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis.
So much for the Fatima Message.
So much for spreading devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Contrast Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis's "consecration" of the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary with the text of Pope Pius XII's consecration:
Queen of the Most Holy Rosary, Help of Christians, Refuge of the human race, conqueror in all God's battles, we humbly prostrate ourselves before thy throne. We are confident of obtaining mercy, grace, and help in the present calamities, not for our own merits to which we make no claim but only because of the great goodness of thy Maternal Heart.
In this tragic hour of human history we confide, entrust, and consecrate to thy Immaculate Heart the Holy Church, Mystical Body of thy son, Jesus, which bleeds now from so many wounds and is so sorely tried. We consecrate likewise to thy Immaculate Heart the whole world torn as it is by deadly strife, afire with hatred and paying the penalty of its own wickedness.
Be moved to pity by the sight of so much destruction and ruin of souls, by the grief and agony of fathers and mothers, husbands and wives, brothers, sisters, and innocent children. Look with compassion on the lives cut off in the flower of youth, on the bodies mangled in horrible slaughter, on the many torn with anguish, and on all those in danger of being lost forever.
Mother of Mercy, obtain for us peace from God and the grace that is able in an instant to change the heart of man, the grace that brings and fosters peace, and makes it lasting. Queen of Peace, pray for us and give to the warring world that peace for which the nations long, a peace in the truth, in the righteousness, and in the love of Jesus Christ.
Turn their weapons aside and let peace possess their souls so that God's kingdom may be set up in quiet order. Stretch out a helping hand to the unbeliever and to all who live in the shadow of death. Give them peace and grant that enlightened by the truth they may repeat with us before the one Saviour of the world, 'Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to men of good will.'
Give peace also to the peoples separated from us by error or strife and in particular to those who have professed a special devotion to thee and in whose homes thine ikon was always an object of veneration. It is hidden away now maybe to await the dawn of better days. Bring them back to the one fold of Christ under the one true shepherd. Grant perfect peace and freedom to the holy Church of God. Stem the flood of modern paganism. Let the love of purity increase among the children of God. Make us live as true followers of Christ, as zealous apostles, so that God's servants may grow in merit and increase in number. And as the whole human race was consecrated to the heart of thy Jesus that through hope in Him He might become for all the sign and pledge of victory and salvation, so we in like manner consecrate ourselves forever to thee and to thy Immaculate Heart, O Mother and Queen of the world. This we do so that thy love and protection may hasten the triumph of God's kingdom. Thus may all nations at peace with one another and with God proclaim thee blessed, and sing with thee from pole to pole the unending Magnificat of glory, love, and thanksgiving to the Heart of Jesus in which alone they can find truth, life, and peace. Amen. (Pope Pius XII, Act of Consecration of the World to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, 1942. As found in The Raccolta, 1957, pp, 281-283.)
There is a difference in theology and style between the consecration of our last true pope thus far, Pope Pius XII, and that of the sixth head of the counterfeit church of conciliarism, Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis. This is because Papa Pacelli was a Catholic and Antipapa Bergoglio is a blaspheming heretic who wishes to use even the Immaculate Heart of Mary as an instrument in conciliarism's "new evangelization."
Although Pope Pius XII did not consecrate Russia collegially to the Immaculate Heart of Mary ten years later, his singular act of consecration, which some say he thought fulfilled Our Lady's requests because he had not been sufficiently informed of her apparition to Sister Lucia dos Santos in 1925 to request the collegial consecration with all of the bishops of the world, stands in great contrast to anything that enters the revolutionary, Modernist mind of Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis:
We know — and the knowledge has filled Our heart with hope and with deepest comfort — that you love and honor the Virgin Mother of God with ardent affection and that you venerate her sacred images. It is known that in the Kremlin itself there was constructed a church — today unfortunately no longer being used for divine worship—dedicated to our Lady assumed into heaven; and this is a most clear testimony of the affectionate devotion which your forebears had and you have for the beloved Mother of God.
Now We are well aware that the hope of salvation can never be absent wherever hearts are turned with sincere and ardent piety to the most holy Mother of God. Though attempts be made by men, no matter how powerful or impious, to extirpate the Christian religion and Christian virtue from the minds of the citizens, and though Satan himself may strive with every means to foster this sacrilegious struggle—as is described in the words of the Apostle of the Gentiles: "For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities and the powers, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places"—yet notwithstanding, when Mary interposes her powerful protection, the gates of hell cannot prevail.
She, in fact, is the most loving and most powerful Mother of God and of us all, and never was it heard that anyone has had suppliant recourse to her and has not experienced her most efficacious protection. Continue, therefore, as you have been doing, to venerate her with fervent piety, and to love her ardently and to invoke her with these words which you have been accustomed to address to her: "To you alone has it been given, O most holy and most pure Mother of God, unfailingly to have your petitions ever answered."
We, together with you, are raising to her Our suppliant invocations, that the Christian Faith, which is the honor and support of human society, may be strengthened and increased among the peoples of Russia, and that all the wiles of the enemies of religion, all their errors and their deceptive artifices, may be driven far from you; that public and private morality may be brought into conformity with the teachings of the Gospels; that those especially who among you profess themselves as Catholics, although deprived of their pastors, may resist with fearless fortitude the assaults of the impious, if necessary even unto death; that just liberty, which is the right of the human person, of citizens, and of Christians, may be restored to all as it should be, and in the first place to the Church, which has the divine mandate of teaching to all men truth and virtue; and finally that true peace may come with its shining light to your beloved nation and to all men throughout the world, and that this peace, founded securely upon justice and nourished by fraternal charity, may lead all mankind to that common well-being of citizens and peoples which is the fruit of mutual concord.
May our most loving Mother be pleased to look with clemency also upon those who are organizing the ranks of militant atheists and upon those who are collaborating in promoting such activities; may she deign to obtain for their minds that light which comes from God and direct their hearts through divine grace unto salvation. (Pope Pius XII, Carissimis Russiae Populis, July 7, 1952.)
This act of consecration, if it had been performed with all of the world's bishops, would have fulfilled Our Lady's Fatima Message. (For a fuller discussion about Our Lady's call for the collegial consecration of Russia to her Immaculate Heart, please see one of yesterday's revised articles, Our Lady Does Not Act on Her Own.)
Do you think that Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis is capable of even thinking of making such a consecration as was made by Pope Pius XII?
One must keep in mind that one who is not a Catholic is incapable of thinking as a Catholic no matter if he considers himself to be one and no matter how "devoted" he claims to be to the Mother of God herself.
There is not one wretched thing about conciliarism that has the approval of the Mother of God.
No, not the "new ecclesiology."
No, not false ecumenism.
No, not "inter-religious prayer services."
No, not "inter-religious dialogue."
No, not "religious liberty."
No, not "separation of Church and State."
No, not "the hermeneutic of continuity" or its cousin, "living tradition."
No, not "episcopal collegiality."
No, not the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical service and all of its Jansenist "reforms" (the liturgy as a "meal" and not the unbloody re-presentation or perpetuation of the Sacrifice of the Cross, the obliteration of the distinction between the presider and the laity, the proliferation of laity in the sanctuary, endless expressions of lay "participation" in the service, plenty of room for improvisation).
Our Lady does approve anything about the counterfeit church of conciliarism as it mocks her Divine Son, Christ the King, and the Sacred Deposit of Faith that He has revealed exclusively to His Catholic Church for its eternal safekeeping and infallible explication in all of Its Holy Purity.
Father Maximilian Kolbe explained that modern ecumenism was the antithesis of the Immaculata:
"Only until all schismatics and Protestants profess the Catholic Creed with conviction, when all Jews voluntarily ask for Holy Baptism – only then will the Immaculata have reached its goals.”
“In other words” Saint Maximilian insisted, “there is no greater enemy of the Immaculata and her Knighthood than today’s ecumenism, which every Knight must not only fight against, but also neutralize through diametrically opposed action and ultimately destroy. We must realize the goal of the Militia Immaculata as quickly as possible: that is, to conquer the whole world, and every individual soul which exists today or will exist until the end of the world, for the Immaculata, and through her for the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus.” (Father Karl Stehlin, Immaculata, Our Ideal, Kansas City, Missouri, Angelus Press, 2007, p. 37.)
One can see that Heaven's Peace Plan has nothing in common with the the lies that have been told by the blaspheming apostates who are the officials of the counterfeit church of conciliarism. To allege that one can be "consecrated" to Our Lady of Fatima while promoting that which is repugnant to the honor and glory and majesty of the Most Blessed Trinity and thus harmful to souls, both temporally and eternally, is to show oneself to be a dangerous revolutionary who seeks to turn the Most Blessed Mother into a witness in behalf of that which she hates, conciliarism's continued propagation of the synthesis of all heresies, Modernism.
Consider these two passages from Yves Dupont's Catholic Prophecy: The Coming Chastisement:
"It was revealed to me through the intercession of the Mother of God all heresies will disappear. The victory over heresies has been reserved by Christ for His Blessed Mother. In the latter days, the Lord will in a special manner spread the renown of His Mother. Mary began salvation, and by her intercession it will be completed. Before the second coming of Christ, Mary, more than ever, must shine in mercy, might, and grace in order ot bring unbelievers into the Catholic faith. The power of Mary in the latter days will be very conspicuous. Mary will extend the reign of Christ over the heathens and the Mohammedans, and it will be a time of great joy when Mary is enthroned as Mistress and Queen of Hearts.
"An unusual chastisement will take place towards the end of the world." (Venerable Mary of Agreda, as cited by Yves Dupont, Catholic Prophecy: The Coming Chastisement, TAN Books and Publishers, p. 33.)
The power of Mary over all devils will be particularly outstanding in the last period of time. She will extend the Kingdom of Christ over the idolaters and the Moslems, and there will come a glorious era when Mary is Ruler and Queen of Hearts." (Saint Louis-Marie Grignion de Montfort, as cited by Yves Dupont, Catholic Prophecy: The Coming Chastisement, TAN Books and Publishers, p. 33.)
We must be sure to to make Our Lady the Queen of our hearts as we renew our consecration to her Divine Son, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, through her own Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, praying as many Rosaries each day that our state-in-life permits and seeking to offer up to the Most Blessed Trinity through that same Immaculate Heart of Mary whatever merit we might earn from our patient, loving and grateful bearing of the daily crosses we face in our own lives and the crosses that exist in the world and in the Church Militant on earth in this time of apostasy and betrayal.
We can never blaspheme Our Lady by using her to condition us to accept conciliarism's "surprises" as coming form God and expect to get to Heaven.
We must carry the cross as the consecrated slave of Christ the King through Mary our Immaculate Queen.
We have to suffer to get home to Heaven.
Isn't the possession of the glory of the Beatific Vision of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost for all eternity worth whatever suffering comes our way?
May we pray to Our Lady for the grace of Final Perseverance as we persevere in our resolve now to avoid any contagion with conciliarism and its blasphemies.
