Grand Illusions

by Thomas A. Droleskey

Much has been made in the past month or so of the installation of three some Anglican non-bishops (Keith Newton, John Broadhurst, Andrew Burnham) as non-priests in the counterfeit church of conciliarism just two weeks after they officially transferred their allegiances from one part of the One World Ecumenical Church to another. Several articles on this site, including, Another Year of the Same Conciliar Apostasy, part three, have indicate that these "conversions" have been premised on the acceptance of the so-called Catechism of the Catholic Church that is filled with conciliar errors and on the continued use of liturgical books that were deemed to be heretical by Pope Saint Pius V in Regnans in Excelsis, March 5, 1570. No matter how many "Anglo-Catholics" leave the false Anglican sect to join the false conciliar sect, my kind readers who have waited so patiently for this brief article as I wait patiently to hear from most of you at our post office box, these conversions are nothing other than grand illusions of "progress" as they do not represent an acceptance of the Catholic Faith as It has been taught from time immemorial and have not been preceded by an abjuration of errors.

The former Anglican non-priests who are now conciliar non-priests are in the same position now when they were part of the Anglican sect. That is, the laymen who play act as the governing "bishops" in the "worldwide" Anglican sect that was founded by the lustful, bloodthirsty degenerated named King Henry VIII, tolerate a whole variety of different theological opinions. So do the priests and laymen posing as "bishops" in the counterfeit church of conciliarism, where a wide divergence of views, up to and including an outright denial that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ died on the wood of the Cross in atonement for our sins that was stated very clearly by "Archbishop" Robert Zollitsch on Holy Saturday, April 11, 2009, is tolerated. "Bishops" and "priests" and consecrated religious and ordinary Catholics can express any manner of heretical and or erroneous views while remaining in perfectly good standing as "Catholics" in the counterfeit church of conciliarism. One can even support the chemical and surgical assassination of the innocent preborn in their mothers' wombs under cover of the civil law and, at least in most instances, receive not a word of rebuke from their local conciliar "ordinaries," less yet from the false "pontiff," Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI. This is absolutely no different than the situation that obtains in the Anglican sect. No different at all.

To wit, officials in the counterfeit church of conciliarism tolerate those, such as the eminent Dr. Paul Byrne, who take the objectively true and correct position concerning the moral inadmissibility of the transplantation of certain vital organs that are necessary for human survival and that cannot be obtained other than killing the "donor" from which they are to be taken (see Dr. Paul Byrne on Brain Death, From The Michael Fund Newsletter). Most of those same officials, however, openly endorse vital organ transplantations despite the fact that a living human being must be killed to obtain a heart or a liver. One of these conciliar officials is a Polish "archbishop," Zygmunt Zimowski, who is the President of the "Pontifical" Council for Pastoral Assistance to Health Care Workers, who has told us recently that the false "pontiff," Ratzinger/Benedict, is no longer listed as an organ donor because the body of a man considered to be the Supreme Pontiff must be preserved whole and intact (see Vatican says Benedict no longer an organ donor). This means, of course, that Ratzinger/Benedict endorses vital organ transplantation, as oblivious to the binding precepts of the First Commandment as he is to those of the First and Second Commandments that he has broken as he has personally esteemed the symbols of false religions and called their places of "worship" as "sacred."

How can anyone take as a sign of "progress" the alleged conversion of the Anglicans to such a confused sect as "progress" is truly a masterstroke of the grand illusions worked up by the adversary to keep deceiving Catholics that the "pope of tradition" who believes that "religions" can fight irreligion and that the civil state has no obligation to recognize the true religion and that past dogmatic statements and papal pronouncements are conditioned upon the historical circumstances in which they were made is tempering the effects of the "Second" Vatican Council even though it has been and continues to be his goal to institutionalized the work of this false council and the "magisterium" of the conciliar "popes," most especially his own and that of the man he will beatify on what the conciliarists call "Divine Mercy Sunday," Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II?

Another grand illusion that is being blown into the face of well-meaning "conservative" and traditionally-minded Catholics who are as of yet attached to the conciliar structures involves the possible issuance of a non-papal "motu proprio" to promote the long-expected but much denied "reform of the reform." Although I have written about this several times in the past few years (see, among so many others: A Trap Goes Snap, Once Again, It is All About Truth, Keep Trying, Keep Trying, With Perfection Staring Directly At Them, Turning Perfection Aside For A More Perfect Banality, Taking The Obvious For Granted, Enough Spin To Make Our Heads Spin and Transforming the Extraordinary Into the Ordinary), suffice it to say for the moment that the present excitement about a "reform of the reform" is yet another trick designed to Catholics yet again into thinking that "progress" is going to be made in getting the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo service "right" once and for all. Those who are permitting themselves to be deceived yet again by the talk of a "reform of the reform" must ignore that the "papal" spinmeister, "Father" Federico Lombardi, S.J., has denied that the forthcoming "motu proprio" is intended to "restrict" the "liturgical renewal intended by the 'Second' Vatican Council:"

"It is true that a motu proprio has long been under study to lay down the transferral of a technical legal competence - as, for instance, that of the dispensation for the 'ratum sed non consummatum' matrimony from the Congregation for Divine Worship to the tribunal of the Sacred [Roman] Rota. But there are no grounds nor reason to see in this an intent to promote a control, of a 'restrictive' kind, by the Congregation, of the fostering of the liturgical renewal willed by the Second Vatican Council." (From: Rorate Caeli Blogspot.)


This is the same Federico Lombardi who made it appear as though a "therapeutic" abortion was morally permissible and who was at the forefront of conveying the "pope's" thoughts concerning the use of a certain prophylactic in some cases to prevent the spread of a particular disease that can be contracted principally by unnatural sins of vice against the Sixth and Ninth Commandments. In other words, more conciliar confusion and obfuscation.

What we do know for certain is that Ratzinger/Benedict has long desired to merge certain elements of the modernized version of the Immemorial Mass of Tradition with those of the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo service:

"Neither the Missal of Pius V and John XXIII -- used by a small minority -- nor that of Paul VI -- used today with much spiritual fruit by the greatest majority -- will be the final 'law of prayer' of the Catholic Church." ("Father" Federico Lombardi, Zenit, July 15, 2007.)

From this point of view, then, the new prayer for the Jews in the liturgy in the ancient rite does not weaken, but postulates an enrichment of the meaning of the prayer in use in the modern rite. Exactly like in other cases, it is the modern rite that postulates an enriching evolution of the ancient rite. In a liturgy that is perennially alive, as the Catholic liturgy is, this is the meaning of the coexistence between the two rites, ancient and modern, as intended by Benedict XVI with the motu proprio "Summorum Pontificum."

This is a coexistence that is not destined to endure, but to fuse in the future "in a single Roman rite once again," taking the best from both of these. This is what then-cardinal Ratzinger wrote in 2003 – revealing a deeply held conviction – in a letter to an erudite representative of Lefebvrist traditionalism, the German philologist Heinz-Lothar Barth. (Sandro Magister, A Bishop and a Rabbi Defend the Prayer for the Salvation of the Jews.)


Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI is ever seeking a "synthesis" of faith and a "synthesis" of the liturgy as he tries to weaves together the various and sometimes quite contradictory practices of the "movements" and "communities" and factions within his false church into a place where everyone can be reasonably free to express themselves as long as they maintain "fidelity" to the "Second" Vatican Council and the "magisterium" of the conciliar"popes." The Anglo-Catholics have simply transferred themselves from one bad situation that is the work of Antichrist to yet another.

Even some of the "opposition" to conciliarism is delusional on occasion. This is true in the case of "Bishop" Elias Donhal, who has gained fame for a video denouncing Ratzinger/Benedict for his upcoming Assisi III "World Day of Peace. Just a brief word or two as the cracked fingers are telling me it's time to stop beating dead horses now.

"Bishop" Elias Dohnal belongs to a "church" of his own creation: the Ukrainian Orthodox Greek Catholic Church. "Bishop" Dohnal is not, however, a member of any of the schismatic and heretical Orthodox churches. No, he is a man who was installed as a conciliar presbyter in the former Czechoslovakia in 1971. He is not even a priest and is probably not even a true bishop as he will not name who consecrated him as one (and even if he was consecrated by some Orthodox bishop, my friends, he would still not be a bishop as he is not a true priest). Making a long and complex story quite short, "Bishop" Elias Dohnal broke from the Ukrainian Greek Catholic Church on March 3, 2008, to express his opposition to many of concilairism's apostasies, including false ecumenism, while remaining deeply involved in the errors of Catholic Pentecostalism that goes by the name of the "Catholic Charismatic Renewal," believing that his strict interpretation of Pentecostalism is a model for all other "charismatics."

Did you fall for this one, folks? Yes, it's even the case that some of opposition, no matter how well stated and correct, to conciliarism is itself an illusion of the adversary to give Catholics false hope in this time of apostasy and betrayal.

We must place our abiding hope and trust in the Triumph of the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary as we pray as many Rosaries each day as our states in life permit. We give no quarter to false optimism or to morbid pessimism. We are Catholics, men and women who understand that our situation is today exactly as God knew from all eternity that it would be, meaning that there is work for us to do as His consecrated slaves through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of His Most Blessed  Mother to plant a few seeds for the restoration of the Church Militant on earth and thus of Christendom in the world.

We cannot permit ourselves to be so agitated by various news stories that we lose sight of the fact that we are living through a chastisement that involves one grand illusion after another. We keep our eyes affixed to the standard of the Holy Cross, giving thanks to the good God that He has willed it so for us to be alive at this time in salvation history, that we, despite our sins and failings and shortcomings, can bear witness to the immutable truths of the Catholic Faith as we seek to sanctify our souls and to bear our share of hardship, no matter what it might be or from what source it might arise, patiently, bearing true Charity in our hearts even for those who are the enemies of Christ the King and Mary our Immaculate Queen in the conciliar church and in the world and for those who might be the chosen instruments of our own purification in this passing, mortal vale of tears.

Those who are sober and alert as the stalwart champions of Christ the King and Mary our Immaculate Queen will, with the help of Saint Joseph, the Terror of Demons, and Saint Michael the Archangel and their own Guardian Angels and patron saints, be able to better cooperate with the graces sent to them by Our Lady to help others avoid falling prey to the grand illusions of our times and to embrace the truth of our ecclesiastical situation today without any fear of any consequences whatsoever.

Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon!
