Francis Says ¡Viva la Revolución!
by Thomas A. Droleskey
Each false claimant to the Throne of Chair Peter since the death of Pope Pius XII on October 9, 1958, and the "election" of Angelo Roncalli/John XXIII nineteen days later has pushed the boundaries of the conciliar revolution beyond a variety of "barricades" that they believe were erected when during the "preconciliar" era of the "Catholic ghetto," to use a phrase popularized by Joseph "Cardinal" Ratzinger in Principles of Catholic Theology, which was published in 1982.
Angelo Roncalli/John XXIII started the conciliar revolution when he called for the "Second" Vatican Council on January 25, 1959, Feast of the Conversion of Saint Paul, and as imposed a Jansenist "simplification" of the liturgy that included, among many other things, the suppression or downgrading of the feast days of various saints, meaning, of course, that God the Holy Ghost had failed Holy Mother Church by permitting true popes to establish feasts in honor of saints, including that of Saint Philomena the Wonderworker, whose "authenticity" was said to be doubtful (see Father Francesco Ricossa's Liturgical Revolution).
There is quite an irony in Roncalli/John XXIII's having suppressed saints he believed to be of doubtful authenticity as he, an enemy of Christ the King and thus of the souls for whom Our King shed every single drop of His Most Precious Blood on the wood of the Holy Cross to redeem, will be raised to the conciliar Cranmer tables as a "saint" without any miracles at all along with the time of the prodigious "saint maker" himself, Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II, whose "simplification" of the processes of beatification and canonization in the counterfeit church of conciliarism has deconstructed, misrepresented and distorted the very nature of sanctity (see Two For The Price Of One, part one and Two For The Price Of One, part two).
Giovanni Montini/Paul The Sick presided over the final three sessions of the "Second" Vatican Council, issuing each of that council's revolutionary documents in his own name as he sought to bind the consciences of Catholic on its very closing day, December 8, 1965, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary:
APOSTOLIC BRIEF "IN SPIRITU SANCTO' FOR THE CLOSING
OF THE COUNCIL - DECEMBER 8, 1965, read at the closing ceremonies of
Dec. 8 by Archbishop Pericle Felici, general secretary of the council.
The Second Vatican Ecumenical Council,
assembled in the Holy Spirit and under the protection of the Blessed
Virgin Mary, whom we have declared Mother of the Church, and of St.
Joseph, her glorious spouse, and of the Apostles SS. Peter and Paul,
must be numbered without doubt among the greatest events of the Church.
In fact it was the largest in the number of Fathers who came to the seat
of Peter from every part of the world, even from those places where the
hierarchy has been very recently established. It was the richest
because of the questions which for four sessions have been discussed
carefully and profoundly. And last of all it was the most opportune,
because, bearing in mind the necessities of the present day, above all
it sought to meet the pastoral needs and, nourishing the flame of
charity, it has made a great effort to reach not only the Christians
still separated from communion with the Holy See, but also the whole
At last all which regards the holy ecumenical council has, with the
help of God, been accomplished and all the constitutions, decrees,
declarations and votes have been approved by the deliberation of the
synod and promulgated by us. Therefore we decided to close for all
intents and purposes, with our apostolic authority, this same ecumenical
council called by our predecessor, Pope John XXIII, which opened
October 11, 1962, and which was continued by us after his death.
We decided moreover that all that has been established
synodally is to be religiously observed by all the faithful, for the
glory of God and the dignity of the Church and for the tranquillity and
peace of all men. We have approved and established these things,
decreeing that the present letters are and remain stable and valid, and
are to have legal effectiveness, so that they be disseminated and obtain
full and complete effect, and so that they may be fully convalidated by
those whom they concern or may concern now and in the future; and so
that, as it be judged and described, all efforts contrary to these
things by whomever or whatever authority, knowingly or in ignorance be
invalid and worthless from now on.
Given in Rome at St. Peter's, under the [seal of the] ring of the
fisherman, Dec. 8, on the feast of the Immaculate Conception of the
Blessed Virgin Mary, the year 1965, the third year of our pontificate. (APOSTOLIC BRIEF - IN SPIRITU SANCTO.)
Giovanni Montini/Paul The Sick saw to it that each of the conciliar church's heretical building blocks (the new ecclesiology, episcopal collegiality, false ecumenism, inter-religious "dialogue," religious liberty, separation of Church and State, a "new teaching on the Jews" that was brought to fruition in Nostra Aetate, October 27, 1965, five years after Roncalli/John XXIII "absolved" Jews of any guilt in the Crucifixion of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ) were "religiously observed by all the faithful," which is why he appointed men as bishops, many of whom shared his own lavender proclivities, who were brutal in their treatment of priests and consecrated religious who dared to question, no less reject, the conciliar agenda. Montini/Paul The Sick gave away his tiara, genuflected before the heretical and schismatic Greek Orthodox Patriarch of Constantinople and called the United Nations the "last hope of concord and peace" on earth (see Address to the United Nations, October 4, 1965) and, of course, promulgate false rites of episcopal consecration and priestly ordination in preparation for the promulgation of the Protestant and Judeo-Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical service.
Albino Luciani/John Paul I only served as the head of the counterfeit church of conciliarism for thirty-four days, that is, from August 26, 1978, to September 28, 1978. In that short period of time, however, he became known as the "smiling pope" who "personalized" the papacy in conciliar captivity by refusing to be crowned with the tiara, although it remained on his coat of arms, and by becoming the first of the conciliar "popes" to use the first person singular to refer to himself, establishing a precedent that each of his successors (Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II, Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI and Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis) has followed most very assiduously. (Yes, Luciani/John Paul I also used the royal "we" to refer himself occasionally. However, he did popularize the use of "I," which the egotist Wojtyla/John Paul II used incessantly.)
Although appearing to many of us at the time as a firm defender of orthodoxy, Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II was a complete revolutionary, which is any efforts on the part of commentators recently who have expressed the belief that Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis wants to "canonize" John Paul II in order to appease "conservatives" upset about the "canonization" of John XXIII are laugh-out-loud absurd. Wojtyla/John Paul II engaged in the most bizarre "papal" liturgies that the world had ever seen up to that point, liturgies that not even any of the heretics of yore would have dared to have imagine possible. The Polish "pope" promoted false ecumenism, "prayed" and gave "joint blessings" with leaders of non-Catholic religions, entered synagogues, venerated mosques, praised one false religion after another as he praised the "blessings" of "religious liberty" and "separation of Church and State."
Guided by his hand-selected appointee as the prefect of the conciliar Congregation for the Deconstruction, Deformation and Destruction of the Faith, Joseph Alois "Cardinal" Ratzinger, John Paul II established a trap to neutralize, marginalize and then silence traditionally-minded Catholics in the conciliar structures in exchange for being considered "obedient Catholics," a scheme that has caused so many formerly militant, right-thinking Catholics who once took pains to avoid the popular culture and to avoid the use of masculine attire for their girls as they assured their boys to dress modestly as Catholic gentleman to surrender to the prevailing "almost anything goes" ethos of the Novus Ordo world. Part of this surrender has involved a blithe acceptance, if not actual embrace, of hideous Novus Ordo service itself that some in the Motu world used to reject in the strongest terms imaginable. Over and above, Wojtyla/John Paul II's other crimes against the good of souls, which, of course, included his promotion and protection of clerical abusers and, very notoriously, the infamous Marcel Maciel Degollado, the morally corrupt founder and cult leader of the Legionaries of Christ (see Legionaries of Cash and Cover-Up and Unimaginable Deceit and Duplicity).
Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict XVI?
Well, there is little more to add than which is included in Mister Asteroid Is Looking Pretty Good Right About Now. Ratzinger/Benedict attempted to "stabilize" the conciliar revolution by his infamous, philosophically absurd and dogmatically condemned "hermeneutic of continuity," which was nothing more and nothing less than Modernism's "evolution of dogma" that had been presented to us by Wojtyla/John Paul II as "living tradition" (Deft? Daft Is More Like It, part two). Ratzinger/Benedict gave his "papal" imprimatur to supposedly "unofficial" documents issued by the International Theological Commission and the Joint International Commission for the Theological Dialogue Between the Conciliar Church and the Orthodox Church while using his general audience addresses to deconstruct and misrepresent the teachings and the lives of very Saints and Doctors to make them perjured witnesses in behalf of conciliarism. And this is to say nothing of his "unofficial" books issued during the time he served as the head of the counterfeit church of conciliarism.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis is, as has been mentioned, well, at least a few times before on this site in the past one hundred forty-five days now, simply a hard-core Jesuit revolutionary of the 1970s who just keeps saying the same thing over and over and over again.
It is important to keep this in mind as there is nothing that Bergoglio/Francis has said in the past one hundred forty-five days that is any way new as many of us, this writer included, have heard it preached from the pulpits during our Novus Ordo days or, in the case of those of us who had contact with Jesuits in the 1970s (as I did when considering a priestly vocation with the Society of Jesus), had lectures given to us privately about the "changes" that those of us deemed "conservative" and "rigid" would just have to accept.
Those who have been following Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis closely for the past one hundred forty-five days now realize that nothing he said during his seven day stay in Brazil or in his eighty-one minute press conference on the airplane taking him back to Rome was original in the slightest. Taken together will all of his other actions since March 13, 2013, though, what he has said recently provides a clear signal to those who have not been paying careful attention to his remarks prior to now that the "hermeneutic of continuity" is dead. There will be no more attempts to "reconcile" the "closed-in-on-itself" "no church" of the "Pelagian" past with the "welcoming" "yes" church of what's happening now (Clerow "Flip" Wilson's Reverend Leroy's "Church of What's Happening Now" comes to mind here) that serves the "poor" and "downtrodden" and "dialogues" with all others as it is transformed into a "church of encounter." It's full speed ahead for the Roncalli-Montini revolution without any effort to amalgamate "traditionalists," whom Bergoglio/Francis has disparaged as "restorationists" and "Pharisees" and "rigid" and "stubborn" and "Pelagian" into its agenda. And Bergoglio/Francis has quite a revolutionary agenda to pursue.
Where Episcopal Collegiality Meets Living With Sins That Cry Out to Heaven for Vengeance, Including Willful Murder
One of the chief goals of the conciliar revolution has been, of course, the devolution of power from the Vatican to the national episcopal conferences. Bergoglio/Francis explained this in an answer he gave during the airplane press conference a week ago today, that is, on Monday, July 29, 2013:
Francis: The steps I have taken in these four and a half months, come from two sources: the content of what had to be done, it all comes from the source of the General Congregations that we Cardinals had. They were things that we Cardinals asked for to the one who’d be the new Pope.
I remember that I asked for many things, thinking of someone else.
That is, we asked, this has to be done… for instance, the Commission of eight Cardinals, we know that it’s important to have an outside consultation, not the consultations that take place, but from the outside. And this is in line — here I make a sort of abstraction, thinking, however, to explain it — in the line increasingly of the maturation of the relation between the Synodality and the Primacy.
That is, these eight Cardinals favor Synodality, they help the different episcopates of the world to express themselves in the government itself of the Church. Many proposals were made, which have not yet been put into practice, such as the reform of the Synod’s Secretariat, the methodology; such as the Post-Synodal Commission which has a permanent character of consultation; such as the Cardinals’ Consistories with topics that aren’t so formal, such as, for instance, canonization, but also subjects, etc. Well, the source of the contents comes from there. (Press Conference in English.)
In actual truth, however, the only things are left for the conciliar revolutionaries to transfer downward from the various Vatican dicasteries to the national "episcopal" conferences are the actual appointment of men to be "bishops," pending "ratification" by the "Bishop of Rome," and complete authority to render decisions on doctrinal matters that have been under the purview of the conciliar Congregation for the Deconstruction, Deformation and Destruction of the Faith. Other than those matters, however, the conciliar creation called national episcopal conferences (each has a smattering of true bishops as those of the Uniat rites are, at least for the most part, validly consecrated as bishops) already have great latitude.
Indeed, some of them have been pioneers in blazing the path for such things as the approval of the "Plan B emergency" abortifacient in some cases and for Catholics who are divorced and remarried without even the fig leaf of a conciliar decree of nullity to receive what purports to be Holy Communion in the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo service. The German "bishops" have already approved the use the "Plan B" abortifacient. (See German bishops OK emergency contraception assault cases. For a refutation of the false claims made by the German conciliar "bishops," please see Crushed By The Weight Of Error, Part Two and Victim Of His Own Obliviousness.) And the "happy 'bishop'" himself, Timothy Michael Dolan, approved the use of this baby-killing potion when he was a member of the Wisconsin Conference of Catholic "Bishops" (see Where The Lesser Of Two Evils Lead: The Gates Of Hell).
Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis himself has indicated "openness" on finding a "solution" to providing his conciliar church's sacramentally invalid rites that would follow, amazingly enough, the example of the heretical and schismatic Orthodox Church, meaning that the Divine Constitution of Holy Mother Church is incomplete and thus needs to be supplemented by "teaching" and pastoral example" of "sister churches" who are said to have a "partial communion" with the conciliar church:
Guido Vecchi: Holy Father, during this trip you have spoken many times about mercy. In regard to access to the sacraments of divorced persons who have remarried, is there a possibility that something will change in the discipline of the Church? That these sacraments be an occasion to bring these people closer, rather than a barrier that separates them from the other faithful?
Francis: This is a subject that is always asked about.
Mercy is greater than the case you pose.
I believe this is the time of mercy.
This change of era, also so many problems of the Church — such as the witness that’s not good of some priests, also problems of corruption in the Church, also the problem of clericalism, to give an example — have left so many wounds, so many wounds.
And the Church is Mother: she must go to heal the wounds with mercy.
But if the Lord does not tire of forgiving, we have no other choice than this: first of all, to cure the wounds. The Church is Mother and must go on this path of mercy. And find mercy for all.
But I think, when the Prodigal Son returned home, his father didn’t say: “But you, listen sit down: what did you do with the money?” No! He had a feast! Then, perhaps, when the son wished to speak, he spoke.
The Church must do likewise. When there is someone… not just wait for them: go to find them! This is mercy. And I believe that this is a kairos: this time is akairos of mercy.
But John Paul II had this first intuition, when he began with Faustina Kowalska, the Divine Mercy… he had something, he had intuited that it was a necessity of this time.
With reference to the problem of Communion, it’s not a problem, but when they are in a second union, they can’t. I think that it’s necessary to look at this in the totality of matrimonial ministry. And because of this it’s a problem.
But also — a parenthesis — the Orthodox have a different practice. They follow the theology of the economy, as we call it, and give a second possibility, they allow it. But I think this problem — close the parenthesis — must be studied in the framework of matrimonial ministry.
And because of this, two things: first, one of the subjects to be consulted with these eight of the Council of Cardinals, with whom we will meet, the 1st, 2nd and 3rd of October, is how to go forward in matrimonial ministry, and this problem will arise there.
And, a second thing: Fifteen days ago, the secretary of the Synod of Bishops was with me, for the topic of the next Synod. It was an anthropological topic, but speaking and speaking again, going and returning, we saw this anthropological topic: how faith helps the planning of the person, but in the family, and to go, therefore, to matrimonial ministry.
We are on the way for a somewhat profound matrimonial ministry.
And this is everyone’s problem, because there are so many, no? For instance, I’ll mention only one: Cardinal Quarracino, my predecessor, said that for him half of all marriages are null. Why did he say this? Because they get married without maturity, they marry without remembering that it’s for the whole of life, or they marry because socially they must marry.
And the matrimonial ministry also comes into this. And also the judicial problem of the nullity of marriages, this must be reviewed, because the Ecclesiastical Tribunals are not enough for this. The problem of the matrimonial ministry is complex. Thank you. (Press Conference in English.)
Moral theology has nothing to do with anthropology.
The Vatican's "Synod of Bishops" office cannot make that which is repugnant to God morally licit in the name of a "more profound matrimonial ministry."
The words of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ about remarriage are very clear as not even Holy Mother Church herself can declare a ratified and consummated marriage invalid:
 And it came to pass when Jesus had ended these words, he departed from
Galilee, and came into the coasts of Judea, beyond Jordan.  And great multitudes followed him: and he healed them there.  And there came to him the Pharisees tempting him, and saying: Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife for every cause?  Who answering, said to them: Have ye not read, that he who made man from the beginning, Made them male and female? And he said:  For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife, and they two shall be in one flesh.
 Therefore now they are not two, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let no man put asunder.  They say to him: Why then did Moses command to give a bill of divorce, and to put away?  He saith to them: Because Moses by reason of the hardness of your heart
permitted you to put away your wives: but from the beginning it was not
so.  And I say to you, that whosoever shall put away his wife, except it be for fornication, and shall marry another, committeth adultery: and he
that shall marry her that is put away, committeth adultery.  His disciples say unto him: If the case of a man with his wife be so, it is not expedient to marry. (Matthew 19: 1-10.)
Readers of this can can review Mr. Michael Creighton's Modern Problems of Marriage for a thoroughly Catholic study of the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony that the conciliar revolutionaries desire to reduce to the level of sentimentality and emotionalism as they rely upon the "example" of the schismatic and heretical Orthodox.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis's approach, which relies heavily upon the Synod of "Bishops" and his Commission of Commissars, is boilerplate conciliarism, and it is in perfect continuity with the mind of his equally Modernist predecessor, Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict XVI:
In the third part of his essay, Pope Benedict replies to those who
demand that the Catholic Church respect the choice of the divorced and
remarried when "in conscience" they believe it just to receive
communion, in contrast with the juridical norm that bans it.
Benedict XVI begins with a consideration that seems to close any sort of loophole:
the prior marriage of two divorced and remarried members of the
faithful was valid, under no circumstances can their new union be
considered lawful and therefore reception of the sacraments is
intrinsically impossible. The conscience of the individual is bound to
this norm without exception." A norm, the indissolubility of marriage,
that is of "divine law" and "over which the Church has no discretionary
But immediately afterward, he adds:
the Church has the authority to clarify those conditions which must be
fulfilled for a marriage to be considered indissoluble according to the sense of Jesus' teaching."
And, he writes, the ecclesiastical
tribunals that should ascertain whether or not a marriage is valid do
not always function well. Sometimes the processes "last an excessive
amount of time." In some cases "they conclude with questionable
decisions."In still others "mistakes occur."
In these cases,
therefore – the pope recognizes –, "it seems that the application of
'epikeia' in the internal forum is not automatically excluded," meaning a
decision of conscience:
"Some theologians are of the opinion
that the faithful ought to adhere strictly even in the internal forum to
juridical decisions which they believe to be false. Others maintain
that exceptions are possible here in the internal forum, because the
juridical forum does not deal with norms of divine law, but rather with
norms of ecclesiastical law. This question, however, demands further
study and clarification. Admittedly, the conditions for asserting an
exception would need to be clarified very precisely, in order to avoid
arbitrariness and to safeguard the public character of marriage,
removing it from subjective decisions". (No Communion for Outlaws. But Benedict Is Studying Two Exceptions.)
In other words, the "two-headed pope monster" is of one mind on this matter.
Both Ratzinger/Benedict and Bergoglio/Francis are trying to maintain the Catholic doctrine of the
indissolubility of marriage while at the same time "rediscovering" the
"sense" of a teaching that is very clear. This is just another
manifestation of their mutual lack of understanding of the
nature of the immutability of God, Who is immutable. Ratzinger/Benedict
thus proceeds to analyze almost every point of Catholic doctrine and
pastoral praxis on the basis of the agnosticism critiqued by Pope Saint
Pius X in Pascendi Dominici Gregis. That is, the "two-headed pope monster"
does not believe that anything about the Catholic Faith is ever truly
settled once and for all, something that Pope Saint Pius X noted in Pascendi Dominci Gregis:
It remains for Us now to say a few words about the Modernist as reformer. From
all that has preceded, it is abundantly clear how great and how eager
is the passion of such men for innovation. In all Catholicism there is
absolutely nothing on which it does not fasten. They wish philosophy to
be reformed, especially in the ecclesiastical seminaries. They
wish the scholastic philosophy to be relegated to the history of
philosophy and to be classed among absolute systems, and the young men
to be taught modern philosophy which alone is true and suited to the
times in which we live. They desire the reform of theology:
rational theology is to have modern philosophy for its foundation, and
positive theology is to be founded on the history of dogma. As for
history, it must be written and taught only according to their methods
and modern principles. Dogmas and their evolution, they affirm, are to
be harmonized with science and history. In the Catechism no dogmas are
to be inserted except those that have been reformed and are within the
capacity of the people. Regarding worship, they say, the number of
external devotions is to be reduced, and steps must be taken to prevent
their further increase, though, indeed, some of the admirers of
symbolism are disposed to be more indulgent on this head. They cry out
that ecclesiastical government requires to be reformed in all its
branches, but especially in its disciplinary and dogmatic departments
They insist that both outwardly and inwardly it must be brought into
harmony with the modern conscience which now wholly tends towards
democracy; a share in ecclesiastical government should therefore be
given to the lower ranks of the clergy and even to the laity and
authority which is too much concentrated should be decentralized The
Roman Congregations and especially the index and the Holy Office, must
be likewise modified The ecclesiastical authority must alter its line of
conduct in the social and political world; while keeping outside
political organizations it must adapt itself to them in order to
penetrate them with its spirit. With regard to morals, they
adopt the principle of the Americanists, that the active virtues are
more important than the passive, and are to be more encouraged in
practice. They ask that the clergy should return to their
primitive humility and poverty, and that in their ideas and action they
should admit the principles of Modernism; and there are some who, gladly
listening to the teaching of their Protestant masters, would desire the
suppression of the celibacy of the clergy. What is there left in the
Church which is not to be reformed by them and according to their
principles? (Pope Saint Pius X, Pascendi Dominici Gregis, September 8, 1907.)
Everything must be "discovered" and expressed anew.
What the "two-headed pope monster" is saying, therefore, on the
issue of giving what is thought to be Holy Communion to those engaged in
adulterous marriages is that "we will uphold the teaching on the
indissolubility of marriage by changing the meaning of what constitutes
an indissoluble marriage, thereby making it possible for those who are
divorced and civilly remarried to resort to a 'solution' within the
confessional that is pastorally sensitive to their 'difficult'
circumstances." Bergoglio/Francis is willing to go even beyond that, it appears. Why not? Everything for this man is up for grabs.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis's desire for a further devolution of conciliar decision-making to the level of the national "episcopal" conferences also makes it more possible for the apparatchiks who work within their nooks and crannies to run amok in their open support for fellow statists, feminists, environmentalists, evolutionists, communists, socialists, pro-aborts and pro-perverts in the civil government who are, of, course, "for the poor" by means of increasing the power of the civil state to confiscate the private property of citizens by means of excessive, unjust taxation to support programs that wind up ending the poverty only of the statists while impoverishing and enslaving ordinary citizens. (Yeah, that was one sentence. Got a problem?)
This is one of the reasons that Bergoglio/Francis is as blase about the execution of innocent human beings by chemical and surgical means as he is about another of the sins that cry out to Heaven for vengeance, the sin of Sodom. He explained in his press conference a week ago today that there was no "need" to speak about abortion at World Youth Day as the Catholic Church has spoken on this crime, thus vitiating the need for him to say anything further even though Brazil itself is on its way to legalizing the surgical assassination of the innocent preborn:
Patricia Zorzan: Speaking on behalf of Brazilians. The society has changed, young people have changed, and we see many young people in Brazil. You have spoken to us about abortion, matrimony between persons of the same gender. In Brazil a law has been approved which extends the right of abortion and has allowed matrimony between persons of the same gender. Why didn’t you speak about this? [Repeated in Italian]
Francis: The Church has already expressed herself perfectly on this. It wasn’t necessary to go back to this, nor did I speak about fraud or lies or other things, on which the Church has a clear doctrine.[Repeated in Italian]
Patricia Zorzan: But it’s an issue that interests young people…
[Repeated in Italian]
Francis: Yes, but it wasn’t necessary to talk about that, but about positive things that open the way to youngsters, isn’t that so? Moreover, young people know perfectly well what the position of the Church is.
[Repeated in Italian]
Patricia Zorzan: What is the position of Your Holiness, can you tell us?
[Repeated in Italian]
Francis: That of the Church. I’m a child of the Church. (Press Conference in English.)
Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis would speak as follows about abortion if really was a child of the Catholic Church, which he is not as he expelled himself from her maternal bosom by virtue of holding to one revolutionary Modernist proposition after another:
Those who hold the reins of government should not forget that it is the duty of public authority by appropriate laws and sanctions to defend the lives of the innocent, and this all the more so since those whose lives are endangered and assailed cannot defend themselves. Among whom we must mention in the first place infants hidden in the mother's womb. And if the public magistrates not only do not defend them, but by their laws and ordinances betray them to death at the hands of doctors or of others, let them remember that God is the Judge and Avenger of innocent blood which cried from earth to Heaven. (Pope Pius XI, Casti Connubii, December 31, 1930.)
Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis is not son of the Catholic Church as he does not believe that this statement, issued by a true pope, is true. He believes, of course, in the false notion of "mercy" as found in the "Divine Mercy" devotion of Sister Faustina Kowalska. This obviates him from any responsibility of speaking "harshly" about "difficult" matters, whether to the very civil leaders, whose ear he had and to whom he spoke while in Brazil two weeks ago now, who are promotion moral evils or to the young at "World Youth Day 2013" who are supposed to know that which is not taught to them in their local parishes and that might be considered "negative" rather than "positive."
Young Catholics are also supposed to know that it is opposed to the First Commandment to honor false religions, no less to "pray" with leaders of false religious sects or to call for "respect" to be shown to their symbols or their places of false worship.
Young Catholics are also supposed to know about the Virtue of Modesty and what constitutes the near occasion of sins.
Young Catholics are also supposed know that the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is the unbloody re-presentation or perpetuation of the one Sacrifice that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ made to His Co-Equal and Co-Eternal God the Father on the wood of the Holy Cross in atonement for our sins and that they are required to be reverent, devout, recollected and silent during its offering.
Anyone familiar with the spectacle of indecency, irreverence, immodesty, sacrilege, blasphemy and heresy that unfolded in Rio de Janeiro two weeks ago knows that the young Catholics who gathered there are as clueless about the Catholic Faith as the "pastors" who sent them there and the "lay pope" who tickled their ears with the sweet sounds of "positive" messages.
The truth is, of course, that hundreds upon hundreds of millions of young Catholics have been corrupted by the rot of explicit classroom indoctrination in matters pertaining to the Sixth and Ninth Commandments from their tenderest years in full violation of Pope Pius XI's explicit prohibition of such indoctrination as found in Divini Redemptoris, December 31, 1929, thus making them more vulnerable to prey upon each other and to be predisposed to accept as ordinary and natural the indecency, immodesty, vulgarity and obscenity found in the world around them, including in so-called "music" and on television, in motion pictures and in their various means of social media.
Most Catholics in the world today know nothing about authentic Catholic teaching because they have never been exposed to what their "pope" calls the "Pharisaical" "views" of "restorationist, and that's just the way their Petrine Minister wants it.
For Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis, of course, it is is always Social Work First, Social Work Last and Social Work Only.
Civil leaders who support abortion and special rites for those engaged in unspeakably perverse acts in violation of the Sixth and Ninth Commandments must be treated with respect, especially if they are said to be working for the "poor" by means of proposing, implementing, maintaining, increasing and expanding government "services" in their behalf. As far as the false "pontiff" is concerned, the daily slaughter of the preborn by chemical and surgical means is something for the national "episcopal" conferences to handle, and the principal charge he gave to the leaders of the Latin American "episcopal" conference eight days ago was to involve the laity more in decision-making and worship.
All of this suits the statist friends of the statist merchants of death who populate such entities as the United States Conference of "Catholic" "Bishops" quite nicely as they have long sought to use one ruse after another to embrace pro-abortion, pro-perversity public officials in the name of "helping the poor, thus continuing the sad Americanist legacy that characterized the very establishment of the National Catholic War Council (which by turns became the National Catholic Welfare Conference, the National Conference of Catholic Bishops/United States Catholic Conference before it became known as the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops) during World War I to aid the statist, anti-Catholic bigot named President Thomas Woodrow Wilson.
apparatus grew in size over time, serving as a major supporter of the
leftist policies of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt that were in
direct contravention of Pope Pius XI's call in Quadragesimo Anno,
May 15, 1931, to respect the Natural Law principle of subsidiarity
(that those institutions, starting with the family, closest to those in
need should supply for their wants). The bureaucracy of the American
bishops became so filled with unreconstructed leftists and statists by
the 1960s that many "conservative" Catholics considered the then named
United States Conference of Catholic Bishops to be nothing other than a
policy arm of the administration of the social engineer named President
Lyndon Baines Johnson. The entity of the American bishops, first true and then mostly false, served as a prototype for the sort of national episcopal conferences that were created by Giovanni Montini/Paul The Sick just as the heresy of Americanism was the prophetic harbinger of religious liberty and separation of Church and State.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis thus has as little problem with the likes of Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro as Roger Michael Mahony because the current American statist caesar, who is being enabled at every possible turn by the hapless group of pandering naturalists in the organized crime family of the false opposite of the naturalist "right," is "for the poor," wants to "include" "gays" in society, impose universal health care upon the citizenry and come to the aid of those who have entered and stayed in this country illegally.
As is the case with many of the world's conciliar "bishops" and with ninety percent or so of those who work in the administrative agencies of the counterfeit church of concilairism's "episcopal" conferences, Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis believes that it is possible for there to be a more "just" society and "economic fairness" in the name of "human dignity" and "brotherhood." He believes that the economic conditions in individual countries and around the world can be improved even though the civil laws enshrine and protect grave moral evils that are also promote widely in what passes for "popular culture."
In other words, Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis believes in a lie. He may believe in this lie sincerely. And he adheres to this lie even though the pagan authors of antiquity knew that disorder in the soul led to disorder in societies and very the teaching of the Catholic Church about the horror of personal sin in the lives of unrepentant sinners and upon the entirety of nations is yet another indicative that the man simply is not a Catholic.
Perhaps it is good to have yet another reminder that it is impossible to realize temporal prosperity while pursuing things repugnant to the peace and happiness of eternity, including offending God by promoting false doctrines and hideous worship, to say nothing of killing the innocent and treating sodomy as a special category of human self-identification:
The more closely the temporal power of a nation aligns itself with the spiritual, and the more it fosters and promotes the latter, by so much the more it contributes to the conservation of the commonwealth. For it is the aim of the ecclesiastical authority by the use of spiritual means, to form good Christians in accordance with its own particular end and object; and in doing this it helps at the same time to form good citizens, and prepares them to meet their obligations as members of a civil society. This follows of necessity because in the City of God, the Holy Roman Catholic Church, a good citizen and an upright man are absolutely one and the same thing. How grave therefore is the error of those who separate things so closely united, and who think that they can produce good citizens by ways and methods other than those which make for the formation of good Christians. For, let human prudence say what it likes and reason as it pleases, it is impossible to produce true temporal peace and tranquillity by things repugnant or opposed to the peace and happiness of eternity. (Silvio Cardinal Antoniano, quoted by Pope Pius XI in Divini Illius Magistri, December 31, 1929.)
Catholicism is the only and only foundation of personal and social order. Nothing else, certainly not Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis's conciliar revolution.
Today is the Feast of the Dedication of Our Lady of the Snow, the Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore.
Remember, a miraculous fall of snow on the Esquiline
Hill in Rome Italy, on August 5, 355 A.D., one thousand, six hundred
fifty-eighty years ago today, made
clear an outline of the great basilica that was to be built in honor
Our Lady, which is called today the Basilica of Saint Mary Major. The
outline of Basilica di
Sancta Maria Maggiore was to be found in the snows on Esquiline Hill.
In this great basilica, can be found the Crib in which the Newborn
Christ-Child was placed upon His birth in Bethlehem, the body of Saint
Jerome, who had laid his head in that crib, and the relics of Saint
Matthias. The ceiling of its nave is
covered with the first gold that was brought back by the Spaniards
the Americas. This feast reminds us that it is God's will for us
to give public honor to His Most Blessed Mother, who has been sent to
by Him on numerous occasions through the centuries to give us various
aids (the Rosary, the Brown Scapular, the Miraculous Medal, the Green
Scapular) to give us home to Heaven.
We must trust that Our Lady will help to manifest the
Triumph of her Immaculate Heart and thus ushering in her Reign, the
Reign of Mary, as her Divine Son's Social Reign is restored in as
miraculous manner as snow fell in Rome so miraculously on the night of
August 4, 355. Every Rosary we pray will help to bring about this
miracle as the Church Militant on earth resurrects from her mystical
burial. Each of our acts of penance in reparation for our sins will help
to bring about this miracle.
It is not given to us to know the day or the other
when the conciliarists will be vanquish as, to quote the late William C.
Koneazny once again, Our Lady "throws the bums out." It is enough for
us to do our parts each day to sanctify our immortal souls as we give
honor and glory to the Most Blessed Trinity through Our Lady's Sorrowful
and Immaculate Heart. We must be patient in bearing the crosses of this
present moment, praying as many Rosaries as our state in life permits.
We must beg Our Lady to ask us to be faithful to this simple statement
of Catholic truth by Pope Saint Pius X that has never been uttered by
any conciliar "pope," including Francis the Revolutionary:
This, nevertheless, is what they want to do with
human society; they dream of changing its natural and traditional
foundations; they dream of a Future City built on different principles,
and they dare to proclaim these more fruitful and more beneficial than
the principles upon which the present Christian City rests.
No, Venerable Brethren, We must repeat with the
utmost energy in these times of social and intellectual anarchy when
everyone takes it upon himself to teach as a teacher and lawmaker - the
City cannot be built otherwise than as God has built it; society cannot
be setup unless the Church lays the foundations and supervises the
work; no, civilization is not something yet to be found, nor is the New
City to be built on hazy notions; it has been in existence and still is:
it is Christian civilization, it is the Catholic City. It has only to be set up and restored continually against the unremitting attacks of insane dreamers, rebels and miscreants. omnia instaurare in Christo. (Pope Saint Pius X, Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910.)
To Our Lady's Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart belongs the triumph that will vanquish the lords of Modernism once and for all.
Isn't it time to pray a Rosary now?
