Just In Time For Christmas
by Thomas A. Droleskey
At the close of a year in which Bishop Richard Williamson of the Society of Saint Pius X has been thrown under the busy by his superiors and by none other than Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI himself and a veritable bevy of conciliar "bishops" for expressing views in a television interview on the nature and the extent of the crimes of Adolf Hitler's Third Reich (see Those Who Deny The Holocaust,
Recognize and Capitulate,
Voices From Hell,
Disciples of Caiphas,
As We Forgive Not Those Who Trespass Against Us,
Under The Bus,
No Crime Is Worse Than Deicide,
Let Your Yea Be Yea,
Yes, Sir, Master Scribe, and
Nothing New Under the Conciliar Sun), the ancient enemies of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and His Catholic Church show themselves to have changed not one bit in the past 2,009 years since the Nativity of Our Lord in Bethlehem. Adherents of the false religion of Talmudic Judaism show themselves to have nothing but the most execrable hatred for Our Lord imaginable. Nearly fifty years of rank appeasement of these enemies of the Faith has diminished the Jewish hatred for Our Lord and His Holy Name not one little bit.
Consider this one example of this manifest hatred that so many adherents of Talmudic Judaism have for Our Divine Redeemer and the very place where He instituted the priesthood and the Eucharist for our sanctification and salvation:
More Jewish anti-Christian graffiti at the Cenacle,
by Joshua Lapide
“We killed Jesus” and “Christians out”, extremists write. Urinating on the door has become an almost daily event. Graffiti are linked to a statement made by an Israeli deputy ministry claiming that the Vatican wants to claim sovereignty on Mount Zion.
Jerusalem (AsiaNews) – A further outrage was committed last night against the Franciscan church adjoining the Cenacle on Mount Zion, next to the Room of the Last Supper (pictured, Benedict XVI’s visit in May 2009).
Obscene graffiti on the doors leading to the church read “We killed Jesus", "Christians out" (in English and Hebrew) and "F... off", which were adorned with a "Star of David", apparently so as to leave no one in doubt about the religious affiliation of the perpetrators.
To make the point further, the assailants had urinated on the door and left a long trail of urine leading to it.
According to churchmen at the site, the urination on the door of the shrine has become an almost daily event. Christian sources blame recent false statements attributed by the press to an Israeli deputy minister, suggesting the Vatican wants to claim sovereignty over Mount Zion, for inciting extremist Jewish elements to increase these, by now habitual, attacks.
A few days ago, more graffiti on the wall of the Basilica of the Dormition, near the Cenacle, also read “Death to Christians” (see “"Death to Christians": Hebrew graffiti next to Upper Room in Jerusalem,” in AsiaNews, 12 December 2009). (ISRAEL - VATICAN More Jewish anti-Christian graffiti)
Death to Christians": Hebrew graffiti next to Upper Room in Jerusalem
The graffiti was immediately removed to avoid exacerbating tension between Christians and Jews. Those responsible are probably young Orthodox Jews. In the area of close to the Upper Room many other offences against priests, nuns and holy sites. Doubts about the ability (or willingness) of the State to protect the places of Christendom.
Jerusalem (AsiaNews) – Graffiti in Hebrew, with the words "Death to Christians" appeared two days ago near the Upper Room, one of the most precious holy sites of Christendom. The vandalism took place in the Vatican in Rome the Plenary of the Bilateral Permanent Working Commission between the Holy See and the State of Israel was being held.
The graffiti in black paint appeared along the wall of the Basilica of the Dormition on Mount Zion, a few meters from the place where Christians remember the birth of the institution of the Eucharist and the Church at Pentecost. The writing was immediately removed in order not to exacerbate tensions between Christians and Jews.
Church sources say that the authors are probably young Jewish nationalists, members of some yeshiva (Jewish seminary). Is not the first time that these young people have tried to offend the Christian presence and the holy sites in that area. Often, on the doorstep of the church of the Cenacle Room, run by the Franciscans, these groups carry out their physiological needs in open contempt of the site; other times, in dozens of cases, they spit at priests or nuns passing along the street; once they destroyed a stone cross along the wall.
The Church of the Cenacle is not the Upper Room itself, the place where Jesus instituted the Eucharist. This holy place is now owned by the government of Israel, although since the 14th century it had belonged to the Franciscan Custody of the Holy Land. In the 16th century the Ottomans expelled the Franciscans, but they have never renounced their right to the property.
The graffiti incident took place while discussions were taking place in Rome regarding the return of the Cenacle and other holy sites to the Catholic Church. In this regard, Daniel Ayalon, Deputy Foreign Minister and head of the Israeli delegation, before and after the meeting said that "Israel would not give up its ownership of the Upper Room or other holy places under its direct sovereignty."
This episode and other offences cast a shadow of doubt on the ability (or willingness) of the State of Israel to protect the holy places and especially the Upper Room. (AsiaNews, 12 December 2009).
Ah, yes, the joys of inter-religious dialogue and false ecumenism. Isn't it wonderful to behold? (Perhaps a certain priest with a lot of time on hands to to write blog entries might say to those of us complaining about the use of the profane word mentioned in the first article above from Asia News, "Ah, come on. Give 'em a pass. Boys will be boys.")
Appeasing the ancient enemies of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ has resulted in no reduction of the hatred of the Holy Name of Jesus and of His true Church. Appeasing the ancient enemies of Our Lord and the true Faith has resulted in only one thing: an almost total loss of the sensus Catholicus on the part of most Catholics who remain in the structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism concerning the necessity of even praying for the conversion of those who adhere to the false religion of Judaism.
All of this has come, obviously, just in time for Christmas Day. Our Lord was born into a world that was not ready to receive Him:
In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him: and without him was made nothing that was made. 4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
There was a man sent from God, whose name was John. This man came for a witness, to give testimony of the light, that all men might believe through him. He was not the light, but was to give testimony of the light. That was the true light, which enlighteneth every man that cometh into this world. He was in the world, and the world was made by him, and the world knew him not.
He came unto his own, and his own received him not. (John 1: 1-11.)
Although there was a peace or a stillness over the world when Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ was born in the cradle in the stable in the cave in Bethlehem on Christmas Day, His own Chosen People were looking for a "political messias" who would "save" them from the horrors of the Roman occupation of Palestine. The Romans were cruel oppressors who crushed opposition and crucified those who dared to resist them. The Romans had managed to secure the cooperation of a Jewish puppet king, Herod the Great, and of the Pharisees who would later arrest Our Lord and hand him over to the Roman governor at the time, Pontius Pilate, for crucifixion, considered a form of execution for criminals held in especial contempt. Many of the Jews, especially those of the Zealot party, at the time of Our Lord's Nativity in Bethlehem, expected that the long-awaited Messias would manifest Himself thunderously out of the side of a mountain, throwing off the yoke of the hated Romans in order to restore Israel to its "rightful" place the world in geopolitical terms.
It is no different now. No different at all.
In like manner, you see, so many people today, including so many Catholics, are looking for their "salvation" in politics, projecting Catholic thoughts into the minds of people who believe that human legislatures have the authority to permitting the killing of innocent preborn babies under the cover of law according to the "will" of the "people." There are other Catholics who actually support such killing under all circumstances and in all places without exception, subordinating the binding precepts of the Divine Positive Law and the Natural Law to the political platforms of various candidates and political parties across the ideological spectrum. Whether they be of the false opposite of the naturalist "right" or the false opposite of the naturalist "left," so many Catholics shun the Social Teaching of the true Church founded by the Babe Who was born for us this day in order to justify themselves and their "activity" before men in their quest to "reorder" a world that can be reordered only by the conversion of individual men and of their nations to His own Social Reign.
It is really no wonder that the ancient enemies of the Catholic Church have been emboldened in the past five decades as many Catholics, robbed, at least for the most part in the Latin Rite of the conciliar structures, of the true Sacraments have come to believe that it is simply not necessary to seek the conversion of non-Catholics, including Jews, to the true Faith, that to "tamper" with anyone's "personal" religious convictions is to threaten their very dignity as human beings (see United in Apostasy). The "payback," however, is plain to behold amongst the Jews of Israel and their brethren in the United States of America who work mightily to promote one moral evil under cover of law after another--some even getting "papally knighted" as they do so!--and as the leaders of various Talmudic organizations make one demand after another upon the conciliar "pontiff," Ratzinger/Benedict himself.
Indeed, Ratzinger/Benedict's appeasement of the false religion of Talmudic Judaism is just par for the conciliar course as he, the nonexistent "restorer" of Tradition, praises one false religion after for its ability to 'build" the "better" world, doing so just yesterday, December 17, 2009:
VATICAN CITY, 17 DEC 2009 (VIS) - Today in the Vatican, the Holy Father received the Letters of Credence of eight new ambassadors to the Holy See: Hans Klingenberg of Denmark; Francis K. Butagira of Uganda; Suleiman Mohamad Mustafa of Sudan; Elkanah Odembo of Kenya; Mukhtar B. Tileuberdi of Kazakhstan; Abdul Hannan of Bangladesh; Alpo Rusi of Finland, and Einars Semanis of Latvia.
Addressing the diplomats as a group, the Pope referred to the need for "a just relationship between human beings and the creation in which they live and work" In this context, he underlined the need for "environmental responsibility" because "the continual degradation of the environment constitutes a direct threat to man's survival and his development, and threatens peace among individuals and peoples".
Benedict XVI encouraged the political authorities of the countries the ambassadors represent, and those of all nations, "not only to increase their efforts in favour of environmental protection but also - since the problem cannot be faced only at the national level - to produce proposals and provide encouragement in order to reach vital international agreements that may prove useful and just for all sides".
After then highlighting the importance of "converting or modifying the current development model of our societies", the Pope pointed out that "the Church proposes that this profound change ... be guided by the notion of the integral development of the human person".
"If it is true", said the Holy Father, "that over history religions have often been a factor of conflict, it is also nonetheless true that religions lived according to their profound essence have been, and still are, a force for reconciliation and peace. At this moment in history religions must, through open and sincere dialogue, seek the path of purification in order to conform ever more closely to their true vocation".
"Peaceful coexistence of different religions in each nation is sometimes difficult", he continued. "More than a political problem, this co-existence is a religious problem which lies within the bosom of each one of those traditions. Believers are called to ask God about His will concerning each human situation".
"For people of faith or people of good will, the resolution of human conflicts and the delicate coexistence of different religious expressions can be transformed into an opportunity for human coexistence within a social order full of goodness and wisdom, the origin and impulse of which lies in God. Such coexistence, respecting the nature of things and the inherent wisdom that comes from God, is called peace", said Pope Benedict.
"The peace we so long for will not come into being save by the joint action of individuals, who discover the true nature of God, and of leaders of civil and religious society who - respecting the dignity and faith of all people - know how to give religion its noble and authentic role in creating and perfecting the human person. This overall reworking, at once temporal and spiritual, will enable a new beginning towards the peace that God wishes to be universal". (RELIGIONS ARE A FORCE FOR PEACE AND RECONCILIATION .)
Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI is an apostate. He has no understanding as to the simple fact that God hates false religions. He does not accept the truth that each false religion is from the devil and was condemned by King David himself in Psalm 95, verse 5:
For all the gods of the Gentiles are devils: but the Lord made the heavens.
What doesn't everyone who is "una cum Benedicto" just go out and get the following bumper sticker that could be attached to the "Popemobile?"
Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI believes that "peace" is the result of the "coexistence" of false religions with the true religion? He believes in heresy. He makes a mockery of the teaching that the Prince of Peace Himself has given to Holy Mother Church to proclaim Him and His true religion alone as the only path to peace in human souls and thus of an authentic peace in the world. Ratzinger/Benedict stands condemned by numerous papal teachings, including the following:
Everyone should avoid familiarity or friendship with anyone suspected of belonging to masonry or to affiliated groups. Know them by their fruits and avoid them. Every familiarity should be avoided, not only with those impious libertines who openly promote the character of the sect, but also with those who hide under the mask of universal tolerance, respect for all religions, and the craving to reconcile the maxims of the Gospel with those of the revolution. These men seek to reconcile Christ and Belial, the Church of God and the state without God. (Pope Leo XIII, Custodi di Quella Fede, December 8, 1892.)
The same applies to the notion of Fraternity which they found on the love of common interest or, beyond all philosophies and religions, on the mere notion of humanity, thus embracing with an equal love and tolerance all human beings and their miseries, whether these are intellectual, moral, or physical and temporal. But Catholic doctrine tells us that the primary duty of charity does not lie in the toleration of false ideas, however sincere they may be, nor in the theoretical or practical indifference towards the errors and vices in which we see our brethren plunged, but in the zeal for their intellectual and moral improvement as well as for their material well-being. Catholic doctrine further tells us that love for our neighbor flows from our love for God, Who is Father to all, and goal of the whole human family; and in Jesus Christ whose members we are, to the point that in doing good to others we are doing good to Jesus Christ Himself. Any other kind of love is sheer illusion, sterile and fleeting.
Indeed, we have the human experience of pagan and secular societies of ages past to show that concern for common interests or affinities of nature weigh very little against the passions and wild desires of the heart. No, Venerable Brethren, there is no genuine fraternity outside Christian charity. Through the love of God and His Son Jesus Christ Our Saviour, Christian charity embraces all men, comforts all, and leads all to the same faith and same heavenly happiness. . . .
Here we have, founded by Catholics, an inter-denominational association that is to work for the reform of civilization, an undertaking which is above all religious in character; for there is no true civilization without a moral civilization, and no true moral civilization without the true religion: it is a proven truth, a historical fact. The new Sillonists cannot pretend that they are merely working on “the ground of practical realities” where differences of belief do not matter. Their leader is so conscious of the influence which the convictions of the mind have upon the result of the action, that he invites them, whatever religion they may belong to, “to provide on the ground of practical realities, the proof of the excellence of their personal convictions.” And with good reason: indeed, all practical results reflect the nature of one’s religious convictions, just as the limbs of a man down to his finger-tips, owe their very shape to the principle of life that dwells in his body. (Pope Saint Pius X, Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910.)
Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI believes none of this. He is an apostate as he refuses even to tell adherents of false religions who are presented before his very person by the Providence of God that they must convert to the true Faith, no less as he praises them and tells them that "peace" consists in the "coexistence" of the true Faith with false ones. While the civil authorities may have to tolerate false religious sects so as not to disturb the common good and to create unnecessary conflict, this is a far, far different thing than stating that "coexistence" itself is the foundation of peace. It is not. Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI is a liar. (There I go again. "Judging" a priest, that is. Mind you, I am not judging anyone's subjective culpability before God. That is known only to God. We are to use the reason that God gave us to judge the words and actions of men, including bishops and priests, when those words and actions are contrary to Faith and/or Morals and thus puts into jeopardy the very salvation of souls.)
Christmas Day is but one week away now. One week. No matter the crosses of the moment, each of which has been fashioned for us from all eternity from all eternity by the loving hand of God for His greater honor and glory and for our sanctification as we carry each cross with gratitude as the consecrated slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, we will rejoice on Christmas Day that a Saviour has been born for us so as to die on the wood of the Holy Cross, making it possible for us to born to the life of grace in the baptismal font and to thus have a possibility to be born into the joys of eternal life with Him in Heaven for all eternity. Every set of Joyful Mysteries that we pray between now and Christmas Day will help us to be more prepared to welcome
Our Lord is coming! Let us prepare to use this Ember Friday in Advent as an opportunity of intensifying our penances prior to Christmas so that we can put aside our own deeds of darkness and shun entirely the deeds of the apostates of conciliarism.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon.
