Jorge and Oscar's False Gospel of False Joy
Thomas A. Droleskey, Ph.D.
The process of dealing with the writing, such as it is, of Jorge Mario Bergoglio, can lead one to take up permanent residence at Bellevue Hospital Center, 462 First Avenue, New York, New York. To read paragraph after paragraph of all manner of Modernist and quasi-Marxist revolutionary program makes the text of Evangelii Gaudium is a synthesis of: the propositions condemned by Pope Pius IX in Qui Pluribus, November 9, 1846, and in The Syllabus of Errors, December 8, 1864; the anathemas pronounced solemnly by Pope Pius IX and the Fathers of the [First] Vatican Council; the the errors and methods of the Modernists condemned by Pope Saint Pius X in Pascendi Dominci Gregis, September 8, 1907; the " social "teaching of The Sillon that was condemned by Pope Saint Pius X in Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910; and the errors and methods of the "new theology" that were dissected and condemned by Pope Pius XII in Humani Generis, August 12, 1950. The text of Jorge Mario Bergoglio's Evangelii Gaudium also contains a healthy dose of "contributions" that are at the core of "Marxism with a Christian face," liberation theology.
In other words, Evangelii Gaudium is the text of one who is anti-everything taught and practiced by the Holy Catholic Church from the time of her founding by her Mystical Spouse and Invisible Head, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. It is the work of one who is anti-Christ in thought, word and deed.
One will see from the following section of Evangelii Gaudium that the Argentine apostate does not care if he alienates those Catholics who have been attempting to hold onto the Catholic Faith within the structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism, those who have fought many a pitched battle against his, Bergoglio's, revolutionary kith and kin in the belief that they were fighting "from within" to "save" Holy Mother Church. Jorge Mario Bergoglio cares not about doctrine, his protestations to the contrary notwithstanding. He cares not about liturgical reverence or personal piety. He cares about "accepting" those who walked away from the Catholic Faith because what they thought that the Catholic Church was too "judgmental," "narrow" and "rigid."
There is a reason for this: he felt rejected by the Girondists or Mensheviks among the ranks of conciliar revolutionaries in the Occupied Vatican on the West Bank of the Tiber. He loved being the rebel, the maverick, when he was living in the slums of Buenos Aires and showing himself to be "unaffected" by what he believes is clericalism and unconstrained by the "shackles" of doctrine and liturgical rules and Catholic tradition that have been handed down from time immemorial. His supposed "outreach" to the "poor" and the "downtrodden" and his "papal" disregard for supposedly "human rules" are poorly disguised efforts to vindicate his own life's work and to extol himself, the supposedly "humble street priest," as the "model" for the "renewal" of what he is thinks is the Catholic Church.
Let him speak for himself:
XI. Jorge Mario Bergoglio's Efforts at Self-Vindication and Exaltation
48. If the whole Church takes up this missionary impulse, she has to go forth to everyone without exception. But to whom should she go first? When we read the Gospel we find a clear indication: not so much our friends and wealthy neighbours, but above all the poor and the sick, those who are usually despised and overlooked, “those who cannot repay you” (Lk 14:14). There can be no room for doubt or for explanations which weaken so clear a message. Today and always, “the poor are the privileged recipients of the Gospel”, and the fact that it is freely preached to them is a sign of the kingdom that Jesus came to establish. We have to state, without mincing words, that “there is an inseparable bond between our faith and the poor”. May we never abandon them.
49. Let us go forth, then, let us go forth to offer everyone the life of Jesus Christ. Here I repeat for the entire Church what I have often said to the priests and laity of Buenos Aires: I prefer a Church which is bruised, hurting and dirty because it has been out on the streets, rather than a Church which is unhealthy from being confined and from clinging to its own security. I do not want a Church concerned with being at the centre and then ends by being caught up in a web of obsessions and procedures. If something should rightly disturb us and trouble our consciences, it is the fact that so many of our brothers and sisters are living without the strength, light and consolation born of friendship with Jesus Christ, without a community of faith to support them, without meaning and a goal in life. More than by fear of going astray, my hope is that we will be moved by the fear of remaining shut up within structures which give us a false sense of security, within rules which make us harsh judges, within habits which make us feel safe, while at our door people are starving and Jesus does not tire of saying to us: “Give them something to eat” (Mk 6:37). (Jorge Mario Bergoglio, Evangelii Gaudium, November 26, 2013.)
The Catholic Church has never abandoned the Spiritual or Corporal needs of anyone, rich or power. She has been given unto her the fullness of graces to minister to the spiritual and corporal needs of all. To contend that "the poor" have been neglected prior to the dawning of the age of the counterfeit church of conciliarism is to show oneself a practitioner of the same methodology as every other revolutionary who has been inspired by the devil to use some particular group, usually the "poor," as the "cause" to which others must join him in other to right alleged wrongs.
In the case of Jorge Mario Bergoglio, of course, the "poor" and those at the "margins" have suffered injustices over the centuries because of the Catholic Church's "web of obsessions and procedures," which is why he must make straw men out of priests and presbyters in the conciliar structures he believes want to "stay in their sacristies" and bask in the protection of their "clericalism." Bergoglio believes that every Catholic, whether in the religious life or in the laity, must not be "shut up within structures that give us a false sense of security, within rules which us harsh judges, within habits that make us feel safe."
It is blasphemous contentions such as these that make me want to end this series here and now as it is pointless to have to point the obvious to those who already have the Catholic Faith and whose sensus Catholicus can recognize error and blasphemy when they see it before their very eyes.
Pope Pius IX, writing in his first encyclical letter, Qui Pluribus, November 9, 1846, condemned contentions that would produce men such as Jorge Mario Bergoglio over the course of time:
7. It is with no less deceit, venerable brothers, that other enemies of
divine revelation, with reckless and sacrilegious effrontery, want to import the
doctrine of human progress into the Catholic religion. They extol it with the
highest praise, as if religion itself were not of God but the work of men, or a
philosophical discovery which can be perfected by human means. The charge which
Tertullian justly made against the philosophers of his own time "who brought
forward a Stoic and a Platonic and a Dialectical Christianity" can very aptly
apply to those men who rave so pitiably. Our holy religion was not invented by
human reason, but was most mercifully revealed by God; therefore, one can quite
easily understand that religion itself acquires all its power from the authority
of God who made the revelation, and that it can never be arrived at or perfected
by human reason. In order not to be deceived and go astray in a matter of such
great importance, human reason should indeed carefully investigate the fact of
divine revelation. Having done this, one would be definitely convinced that God
has spoken and therefore would show Him rational obedience, as the Apostle very
wisely teaches. For who can possibly not know that all faith should be given
to the words of God and that it is in the fullest agreement with reason itself
to accept and strongly support doctrines which it has determined to have been
revealed by God, who can neither deceive nor be deceived?
8. But how many wonderful and shining proofs are ready at hand to convince
the human reason in the clearest way that the religion of Christ is divine and
that "the whole principle of our doctrines has taken root from the Lord of the
heavens above"; therefore nothing exists more definite, more settled or more
holy than our faith, which rests on the strongest foundations. This faith, which
teaches for life and points towards salvation, which casts out all vices and is
the fruitful mother and nurse of the virtues, has been established by the birth,
life, death, resurrection, wisdom, wonders and prophecies of Christ Jesus, its
divine author and perfector! Shining forth in all directions with the light of
teaching from on high and enriched with the treasures of heavenly wealth, this
faith grew famed and notable by the foretellings of so many prophets, the lustre
of so many miracles, the steadfastness of so many martyrs, and the glory of so
many saints! It made known the saving laws of Christ and, gaining in strength
daily even when it was most cruelly persecuted, it made its way over the whole
world by land and sea, from the sun's rising to its setting, under the single
standard of the Cross! The deceit of idols was cast down and the mist of errors
was scattered. By the defeat of all kinds of enemies, this faith enlightened
with divine knowledge all peoples, races and nations, no matter how barbarous
and savage, or how different in character, morals, laws and ways of life. It
brought them under the sweet yoke of Christ Himself by proclaiming peace and
good tidings to all men!
9. Now, surely all these events shine with such divine wisdom and power that
anyone who considers them will easily understand that the Christian faith is the
work of God. Human reason knows clearly from these striking and certain proofs
that God is the author of this faith; therefore it is unable to advance further
but should offer all obedience to this faith, casting aside completely every
problem and hesitation. Human reason is convinced that it is God who has given
everything the faith proposes to men for belief and behavior.
10. This consideration too clarifies the great error of those others as well
who boldly venture to explain and interpret the words of God by their own
judgment, misusing their reason and holding the opinion that these words are
like a human work. God Himself has set up a living authority to establish and
teach the true and legitimate meaning of His heavenly revelation. This authority
judges infallibly all disputes which concern matters of faith and morals, lest
the faithful be swirled around by every wind of doctrine which springs from the
evilness of men in encompassing error. And this living infallible authority is
active only in that Church which was built by Christ the Lord upon Peter, the
head of the entire Church, leader and shepherd, whose faith He promised would
never fail. This Church has had an unbroken line of succession from Peter
himself; these legitimate pontiffs are the heirs and defenders of the same
teaching, rank, office and power. And the Church is where Peter is, and Peter
speaks in the Roman Pontiff, living at all times in his successors and making
judgment, providing the truth of the faith to those who seek it. The
divine words therefore mean what this Roman See of the most blessed Peter holds
and has held.
11. For this mother and teacher of all the churches has always preserved
entire and unharmed the faith entrusted to it by Christ the Lord. Furthermore,
it has taught it to the faithful, showing all men truth and the path of
salvation. Since all priesthood originates in this church, the entire
substance of the Christian religion resides there also. The leadership of
the Apostolic See has always been active, and therefore because of its
preeminent authority, the whole Church must agree with it. The faithful who live
in every place constitute the whole Church. Whoever does not gather with
this Church scatters. (Pope Pius IX, Qui Pluribus, November 9, 1846.)
These words, written by the pope who was hated and the object of assassination plots by the very kinds of Masonic revolutionaries with whom Jorge Mario Bergoglio has been associating during his entire life as a conciliar presbyter, are a complete refutation of the two passages form Evangelii Gaudium cited just above. They are also, however, just another refutation of the "recognize while resist" movement whose adherents must constantly find ways to excuse blatant apostates and blaspheming heretics as legitimate "popes" whose teaching and practices they believe can be rejected after undergoing scrutiny by them.
Au contraire, Pope Pius IX taught in Qui Pluribus that legitimate Roman Pontiffs have provided the truth of the faith to those who seek it.
How can anyone who understands Jorge Mario Bergoglio's statements that contradict the Holy Faith and opens the doors wide to the embrace of error and sin reconcile this with Pope Pius IX's assurance that the Roman Pontiff will always provide "the truth of the faith to those who seek it"?
Moreover, Pope Pius IX taught in Qui Pluribus that the "whole Church must agree" with the leadership of the Apostolic See.
How can those who claim that Jorge Mario Bergoglio is "Pope Francis" that they "agree the leadership of the Apostolic See" when they reject that leadership as not being consonant with the Catholic Faith, something that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ promise us can never happen? Holy Mother Church is both infallible and indefectible. As noted in part two of this series to hold that one can refuse to follow a true, valid and legitimate Successor of Saint Peter is to make a mockery of the infallibility of the ordinary magisterium of the
Catholic Church that reduces the papacy to but a nominal figurehead whose
occupants can stumble their way through allocutions and encyclical
letters by contradicting her defined teaching on numerous points,
something that is as false as the "hermeneutic of continuity" itself. Pope Pius IX demonstrated this with abundant clarity. Why is this so difficult to understand.
Pope Pius IX also used Qui Pluribus to dissect and condemn other manifestations of revolutionary beliefs and methods found throughout the text of Evangelii Gaudium, including the two passages cited just above:
13. You already know well, venerable brothers, the other portentous errors
and deceits by which the sons of this world try most bitterly to attack the
Catholic religion and the divine authority of the Church and its laws. They
would even trample underfoot the rights both of the sacred and of the civil
power. For this is the goal of the lawless activities against this Roman See in
which Christ placed the impregnable foundation of His Church. This is the goal
of those secret sects who have come forth from the darkness to destroy and
desolate both the sacred and the civil commonwealth. These have been condemned
with repeated anathema in the Apostolic letters of the Roman Pontiffs who
preceded Us We now confirm these with the fullness of Our Apostolic power
and command that they be most carefully observed.
14. This is the goal too of the crafty Bible Societies which renew the old
skill of the heretics and ceaselessly force on people of all kinds, even the
uneducated, gifts of the Bible. They issue these in large numbers and at great
cost, in vernacular translations, which infringe the holy rules of the Church. The commentaries which are included often contain perverse explanations; so,
having rejected divine tradition, the doctrine of the Fathers and the authority
of the Catholic Church, they all interpret the words of the Lord by their own
private judgment, thereby perverting their meaning. As a result, they fall into
the greatest errors. Gregory XVI of happy memory, Our superior predecessor,
followed the lead of his own predecessors in rejecting these societies in his
apostolic letters. It is Our will to condemn them likewise. (Pope Pius IX, Qui Pluribus, November 9, 1846.)
Once again, you see, this describes and condemns the entire life's work of Jorge Mario Bergoglio of which Evangelii Gaudium can be said to be his "Little Red Book of Sayings."
Well, time permits only an examination of the two passages cited above. There will be a few more examined in part five tomorrow, the Feast of Saint Nicholas of Myra. Part, however, to be published on the Feast of Saint Ambrose and the Vigil of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, will be a lengthier examination
Jorge Mario Bergoglio has issued a clarion call to build up what Saint Pius X condemned in Notre Charge Apostolique, the One World Ecumenical Church:
We fear that worse is to come: the end result of
this developing promiscuousness, the beneficiary of this cosmopolitan
social action, can only be a Democracy which will be neither Catholic,
nor Protestant, nor Jewish. It will be a religion (for Sillonism, so the
leaders have said, is a religion) more universal than the
Catholic Church, uniting all men become brothers and comrades at last in
the "Kingdom of God". - "We do not work for the Church, we work for
And now, overwhelmed
with the deepest sadness, We ask Ourselves, Venerable Brethren, what has
become of the Catholicism of the Sillon? Alas! this organization which
formerly afforded such promising expectations, this limpid and impetuous
stream, has been harnessed in its course by the modern enemies of the
Church, and is now no more than a miserable affluent of the
great movement of apostasy being organized in every country for the
establishment of a One-World Church which shall have neither dogmas, nor
hierarchy, neither discipline for the mind, nor curb for the passions,
and which, under the pretext of freedom and human dignity, would bring
back to the world (if such a Church could overcome) the reign of
legalized cunning and force, and the oppression of the weak, and of all
those who toil and suffer. (Pope Saint Pius X, Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910.)
The Catholic Church does not
give us encyclical letters or apostolic exhortations full of confusion, full of mixture of truth
Pope Pius XI explained in Mortalium Animos, January
6, 1928, that Catholic Church brings forth her teaching to men with ease
and security, not with confusion and admixture of truth and error:"
For the teaching authority of the Church, which in the divine wisdom was constituted on earth in order that
revealed doctrines might remain intact for ever, and that they might be
brought with ease and security to the knowledge of men, and
which is daily exercised through the Roman Pontiff and the Bishops who
are in communion with him, has also the office of defining, when it sees
fit, any truth with solemn rites and decrees, whenever this is
necessary either to oppose the errors or the attacks of heretics, or
more clearly and in greater detail to stamp the minds of the faithful
with the articles of sacred doctrine which have been explained. (Pope
Pius XI, Mortalium Animos, January 6, 1928.)
We must always remember that this is the time that
God has appointed from all eternity for us to live and thus to sanctify
and to save our immortal souls as members of the Catholic Church. The
graces won for us by the shedding of every single drop of Our Lord's
Most Precious Blood on the wood of the Holy Cross and that flows into
our hearts and souls through the loving hands of Our Lady, the Mediatrix
of All Graces, are sufficient for us to handle whatever
crosses--personal, social and ecclesiastical--that we are asked to
carry. We must give thanks to God at all times for each of our crosses
as we seek to serve Him through Our Lady in this time of apostasy and
betrayal, making sure to pray our Rosaries of reparation as we give unto
the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary the
fruits of all of our efforts to restore all things in Him, Christ the
Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon.
