Not Exactly Black and White
Thomas A. Droleskey
Patrick Joseph Buchanan has written a new book, Suicide of a Superpower: Will American Survive to 2025?, that notes undeniable demographic trends that point to declining percentages of whites as a total of the population in the United Sates of America. Mr. Buchanan's facts are unassailable. They are undeniable. They are also nothing new.
The late Father Paul Marx, O.S.B,, noted repeatedly in his lectures around the world that indigenous Europeans would continue to decrease in numbers as a result of their declining birthrates, which were caused by the almost universal use there of contraceptive abortifacients and by the genocide of the innocents that had been unleashed as a result of the decriminalization of surgical baby-killing in one European country after another. This has been the chief reason why so many European nations have been willing to provide permanent residency and then citizenship to immigrants from Mohammedan nations as there is a dearth in the indigenous labor pool. The Mohammedans in Europe are having children aplenty. They are changing the character of the social, economic, political and even the legal system in these nations.
Europe was once the citadel of Christendom. Despite its flaws, the Christendom of the High Middle Ages was characterized by a common Faith, Catholicism, that united men and provided them with the infallible teaching and supernatural helps that they needed to sanctify their souls and thus contribute to the common temporal good of their kingdoms. This theme is explored at some length in volume one of Conversion in Reverse, which should be e-published relatively soon. Suffice it to say for present purposes that the devil had to attack the glories of Christendom with violence so that the seeds of disruption could be planted in Europe to such an extent that many of its residents today have reverted back to the barbarism from which they were converted by the work of Catholic missionaries in the First Millennium into the beginning of the Second Millennium. There is no reversing this trend. Europe is finished. The Mohammedans will win by procreation what they lost in battle in Tours and Lepanto and at the Gates of Vienna.
This process of European suicide, although having antecedent roots during aspects of the Renaissance and the rebirth of the moral relativism of the likes of Michel de Montaigne and the amorality of Niccolo Machiavelli and the Judaizing thought of others, is simply the consequence of the Protestant Revolution's overthrow of the Social Reign of Christ the King that made possible the triumph of the devil and the so-called "rights of man" that are invoked by nominal Catholics and Protestants and naturalists alike all throughout Europe. It is suicide for any nation whenever large numbers of people believe that they are demigods who are the ultimate moral arbiters of right and wrong.
Catholicism was not the foundation of the United States of America. Many of the men who founded this nation had a founding hatred for Christ the King. No one who hates and mocks the Second Person of the Most Blessed Trinity made Man in the Virginal and Immaculate Womb of His Most Blessed Mother by the power of the Third Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, God the Holy Ghost, can do anything other than plant the seeds of social destruction with his false ideas and blasphemous dismissal of Our Lord, Christ the King, and of His true Church as irrelevant to the conduct of personal and social life.
Protestantism is no foundation of personal and social order. It is of the devil. It is a revolution against the true Faith. Its liturgical rites, such as they are, given honor to the devil himself, not to the Most Blessed Trinity. Who says so? The devil himself, who always boasts of his accomplishments:
It is indeed a remarkable
fact that, as the devil made use of Luther, an apostate monk, to abolish
the Mass and deny the Real Presence; in like manner, God made use of
His arch-enemy, the devil, to prove the Real Presence. He repeatedly
forced him publicly to profess his firm belief in it, to confound the
heretics for their disbelief, and acknowledge himself vanquished by Our
Lord in the Blessed Sacrament. For this purpose, God allowed a certain
Mme. Nicola Aubrey, an innocent person, to become possessed by Beelzebub
and twenty-nine other evil spirits. The possession took place on the
eighth of November, 1565, and lasted until the eighth of February, 1566.
Her parents took her to Father de Motta, a pious
priest of Vervins, in order that he might expel the demon by exorcisms
of the Church. Father de Motta tried several times to expel the evil
spirit by applying the sacred relics of the holy cross, but he could not
succeed; Satan would not depart. At last, inspired by the Holy Ghost,
he resolved to expel the devil by means of the sacrament of Our Lord's
Body and Blood. Whilst Nicola was lying in a state of unnatural
lethargy, Father de Motta placed the Blessed Sacrament upon her lips,
and instantly the infernal spell was broken; Nicola was restored to
consciousness, and received Holy Communion with every mark of devotion.
As soon as Nicola had received the sacred Body of Our Lord, her face
became bright and beautiful as the face of an angel, and all who saw her
were filled with joy and wonder, and they blessed God from their inmost
hearts. With the permission of God, Satan returned and again took
possession of Nicola.
As the strange circumstances of Nicola's
possession became known everywhere, several Calvinist preachers came
with their followers, to "expose this popish cheat," as they said. On
their entrance, the devil saluted them mockingly, called them by name,
and told them that they had come in obedience to him. One of
the preachers took his Protestant prayer book, and began to read it with
a very solemn face. The devil laughed at him, and putting on a most
comical look, he said: "Ho! Ho! My good friend; do you intend to expel me with your prayers and hymns? Do you think that they will cause me any pain? Don't you know that they are mine? I helped to compose them!"
"I will expel thee in the name of God," said the preacher, solemnly.
"You!" said the devil mockingly. "You will not expel me either in the name of God, or in the name of the devil. Did you ever hear of one devil driving out another?"
"I am not a devil," said the preacher, angrily, "I am a servant of Christ."
"A servant of Christ, indeed!" said Satan, with a sneer. "What! I tell you, you are worse than I am. I believe, and you do not want to believe. Do you suppose that you can expel me from the body of this miserable wretch? Ha! Go first and expel all the devils that are in your own heart!"
The preacher took his leave, somewhat
discomfited. On going away, he said, turning up the whites of his eyes,
"O Lord, I pray thee, assist this poor creature!"
"And I pray Lucifer," cried the evil spirit, "that he may never leave you, but may always keep you firmly in his power, as he does now. Go about your business, now. You are all mine, and I am your master."
On the arrival of the priest, several of the
Protestants went away -- they had seen and heard more than they wanted.
Others, however, remained; and great was their terror when they saw how
the devil writhed and howled in agony, as soon as the Blessed Sacrament
was brought near him. At last the evil spirit departed, leaving Nicola
in a state of unnatural trance. While she was in this state, several of
the preachers tried to open her eyes, but they found it impossible to do
so. The priest then placed the Blessed Sacrament on Nicola's lips, and
instantly she was restored to consciousness. Rev. Father de Motta then
turned to the astonished preachers, and said: "Go now, ye preachers of
the new Gospel; go and relate everywhere what you have seen and heard.
Do not deny any longer that Our Lord Jesus Christ is really and truly
present in the Blessed Sacrament of the altar. Go now, and let not human
respect hinder you from confessing the truth." (Father Michael Muller,
C.SS.R., Exorcism of Nicola Aubrey.)
Thus it is that Patrick Joseph Buchanan's principal thesis of his book, which he outlined in a recent article (A.D. 2041: End of White America?), that there existed a "unity" in the United States of America as a result of its "Christian" roots and beliefs that has been undermined now by the flood of non-white immigrants, particularly from Latin America and Asia and Mohammedan nations, is simply false on its face. Protestantism is a suicide pact with the devil that was born in an overt effort on the part of Martin Luther and the German princes who supported him to end the temporal power of the Catholic Church and to "liberate" man from the very teaching offices and supernatural helps that are the only means for him know what God has revealed and how to save his soul.
Pope after pope has told us that Catholicism is the only foundation of personal and social order. Here are just two examples:
As for the rest, We greatly deplore the fact that,
where the ravings of human reason extend, there is somebody who studies
new things and strives to know more than is necessary, against the
advice of the apostle. There you will find someone who is
overconfident in seeking the truth outside the Catholic Church, in which
it can be found without even a light tarnish of error. Therefore, the
Church is called, and is indeed, a pillar and foundation of truth.
You correctly understand, venerable brothers, that We speak here also
of that erroneous philosophical system which was recently brought in and
is clearly to be condemned. This system, which comes from the
contemptible and unrestrained desire for innovation, does not seek truth
where it stands in the received and holy apostolic inheritance. Rather,
other empty doctrines, futile and uncertain doctrines not approved by
the Church, are adopted. Only the most conceited men wrongly think that
these teachings can sustain and support that truth. (Pope Gregory XVI, Singulari Nos, May 25, 1834.)
Just as Christianity cannot penetrate into the
soul without making it better, so it cannot enter into public life
without establishing order. With the idea of a God Who governs all, Who
is infinitely Wise, Good, and Just, the idea of duty seizes upon the
consciences of men. It assuages sorrow, it calms hatred, it engenders
heroes. If it has transformed pagan society--and that transformation was
a veritable resurrection--for barbarism disappeared in proportion as
Christianity extended its sway, so, after the terrible shocks which
unbelief has given to the world in our days, it will be able to put that
world again on the true road, and bring back to order the States and
peoples of modern times. But the return of Christianity will not
be efficacious and complete if it does not restore the world to a
sincere love of the one Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church. In the
Catholic Church Christianity is Incarnate. It identifies Itself
with that perfect, spiritual, and, in its own order, sovereign society,
which is the Mystical Body of Jesus Christ and which has for Its
visible head the Roman Pontiff, successor of the Prince of the Apostles.
It is the continuation of the mission of the Savior, the daughter and
the heiress of His Redemption. It has preached the Gospel, and has
defended it at the price of Its blood, and strong in the Divine
assistance and of that immortality which has been promised it, It
makes no terms with error but remains faithful to the commands which
it has received, to carry the doctrine of Jesus Christ to the uttermost
limits of the world and to the end of time, and to protect it in its
inviolable integrity. Legitimate dispenser of the teachings of
the Gospel it does not reveal itself only as the consoler and Redeemer
of souls, but It is still more the internal source of justice and
charity, and the propagator as well as the guardian of true liberty, and
of that equality which alone is possible here below. In applying the
doctrine of its Divine Founder, It maintains a wise equilibrium and
marks the true limits between the rights and privileges of society. The
equality which it proclaims does not destroy the distinction between the
different social classes. It keeps them intact, as nature itself
demands, in order to oppose the anarchy of reason emancipated from
Faith, and abandoned to its own devices. The liberty which it gives in
no wise conflicts with the rights of truth, because those rights are
superior to the demands of liberty. Not does it infringe upon the rights
of justice, because those rights are superior to the claims of mere
numbers or power. Nor does it assail the rights of God because they are
superior to the rights of humanity. (Pope Leo XIII, A Review of His Pontificate, March 19, 1902.)
The extent to which the appearance of social order was preserved in the United States of America for over one hundred seventy years or so was the result of the working of God the Holy Ghost by means of the Sanctifying and Actual Graces He made present through the ministrations of Catholic priests at altars of sacrifice. It is no accident at all that this appearance of social order, which was built on the fabric of religious indifferentism and semi-Pelagianism that are at the heart of Judeo-Masonry, began to collapse as soon as what most people thought was the Catholic Church began to make its "reconciliation" with the false, anti-Incarnational principles of Modernity and deprived Catholics and thus everyone else in the world of that which had supported social structures even after the overthrow of the Social Reign of Christ the King: Sanctifying and Actual Graces.
Most, although far from all, Catholics in the United States of America began over the course of time to view the Church through the eyes of the world rather than seeing the world through the supernatural eyes of the true Faith. Having been taught by the American bishops of the Nineteenth Century that the principles of the American founding were perfectly compatible with the Catholic Faith, many Catholics became convinced the the slogans associated with "democracy" and "human rights" and "equality" and "individualism" could be employed to reject those parts of the Sacred Deposit of Faith that they disliked and/or found inconvenient to accept or embrace. In other words, Catholics were Protestantized in their thinking, and to be Protestantized in one's thinking is become a total naturalist over the course of time, a person who is incapable of understanding their own lives in light of First and Last Things, considering all pain and misfortune and suffering with moans and complaints rather than with gratitude to the good God for giving them endless opportunities to make reparation for their sins through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Protestantism's endorsement of the "family planning" and "population control" agenda of Margaret Sanger and other such eugenicists influenced Catholic theologians in the United States of America and elsewhere throughout the world. And it is Protestantism's endorsement of contraception that led to the acceptance of abortion. The West, including the United States of America, has been committing cultural and demographic suicide from the time that Martin Luther posted those ninety-five theses on the door of Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany, on October 31, 1517. Catholics have even embraced a so-called "natural" form of "family planning" that even some traditionalist priests say very openly and unapologetically is a "Catholic alternative to contraceptive," a mentality that was condemned by Pope Pius XII in his Address to Midwives on the Nature of Their Profession, October 29, 1951, just about sixty years ago now (see Forty-Three Years After Humanae Vitae, Always Trying To Find A Way and Planting Seeds of Revolutionary Change).
Finally, there is no necessary reason to fear a majority nonwhite population if we lived in a land informed by the Catholic Faith. We are witnessing before our very eyes the return of the soon-to-be white minority descend into levels of barbarism that would make the Goths and the Vikings and the Tartars and the Huns of the First Millennium seem like veritable civilized folk. Whole generations of young people have been immersed in a culture of complete amorality and narcissistic selfism. Large numbers of people waste their days watching television or playing video/computer games, sporting tattoos and body piercing of one sort another as they display themselves publicly in forms of undress in a shameless manner that have been hitherto entirely unknown in the history of man. Even Adam and Eve felt shame because they knew they were naked after having eaten the fruit of the Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil that God had forbidden them to eat.
All men, no matter their race or ethnicity (or any mixture thereof), are capable of aspiring to the heights of sanctity as members of the Catholic Church. The cultural identities of the kingdoms of Europe were shaped over the course of centuries following their conversion to the Faith. What was naturally good and thus inoffensive to God or harmful to souls was maintained. Those practices and beliefs that were offensive to God and thus detrimental to right ordering of men and their nations were eradicated. And while many like to wax rhapsodically about the ethnic "purity' of this or that group of Europeans, very few of the old barbaric tribes or pagans were untouched by invasions by other peoples that influenced their bloodlines and thus of their very social lives over the course of time.
What is true, however, is that each of the Catholic lands of human had their own distinct cultural identities. Different customs concerning music and literature and art and dining emerged over the course of time. These are legitimate customs, and it is to the shame of the Irish-American bishops of the United States of America in the Nineteenth Century who sought to suppress these customs in the name of a spirit of "Americanization" that was nothing other than an acceptance of a culture built upon the lies of Protestantism and Judeo-Masonry. It is also the case that there were differences in practices of personal piety and public devotions from one country to the next. It is impossible to "force" a particular culture to become something that it was not meant in the natural order of things.
Although it is true that racial, ethnic and linguistic unity are important constituent elements of a civilization, it is also true that such unity is impossible in a pluralist society such as exists in the United States of America and elsewhere in the West. This is impossible as there needs to be a common supernatural frame of reference around which to organize social life. Father Denis Fahey explained this in The Mystical Body of Christ in the Modern World:
Accordingly, we call civilization the natural social order. Catholicism is the Church, the supernatural social order. These two orders are absolutely distinct.; they are not by means independent. In the natural social order, all achievements are not of equal value. Certain things, good in themselves, are only so for a country, an epoch, a race. They represent a civilization. Other things that are so truly human and spiritual that, though they had their origin in a particular country, at a particular epoch, and were the achievements of a particular race, they are yet capable of entering into the common patrimony of humanity. They represent civilization. Such are, for example, in metaphysics, the explicit notion of the first principles, the four causes, the divisions of being subject and object, potency and act, substance and accident; in politics and law, the notions of the common good, of natural law, of positive law as derived from natural law and obliging in conscience; in art, the spiritual eclat, which is to be found, for example, in the Divina Comedia of Dante, the Cathedral of Cologne, the eyes of Murill's Madonnas.
The conquests that form part of a particular civilization may be legitimately loved and defended. Such, for example, are a language and a form of government. But it is a higher task to defend, in a particular civilization, the specifically human and universal values which have had their origin therein. Such a defence turns to the profit of humanity as a whole, of Latins and Germans, of Saxons and Celts, of West and East. In acting thus, we are defending directly civilization itself and indirectly the Church. The interests of the Church are not directly involved, for the Church belongs to the supernatural order. In such a combat, however, we are indirectly defending her, for the purer a civilization is, the better will it favour (in the order of dispositive causality), the acceptance of the supernatural life of faith and love. On the other hand, to defend the Church is to work in the most efficacious manner possible for the preservation of civilization. The action of the Catholic Church ever aims at protecting, restoring and purifying the civilizations with which she comes in contact.
We must, therefore, never lose sight of the hierarchical order of values, or we shall be involved in endless confusion. The supernatural values authentically represented by the Church come first. Then come the natural values. Amongst these, those which are universal, which form the purest treasure of human intelligence, for example, that a man is not merely matter, hold the first place. After them take their place the natural values that are less universal and more concrete, finally material goods. Most of the errors condemned in the Syllabus of Pope Pius IX attack supernatural values. Some, however, such as those reproved in Propositions 58-64, are directly opposed to universal natural values.
On the one hand, then, as in the present order of the world, it is not possible for a man to develop his natural powers in a fully harmonious manner without supernatural life, the attitude towards the Mystical Body of Christ, the Catholic Church, charged with the diffusion of the Divine Life, is the spiritual principle of the soul of a civilization and the real touchstone of its values. On the other hand, wherever the action of the Church has been favoured, she has conferred untold benefits in the order of civilization. She has striven, everywhere, to keep clearly in view the end of all true culture, the formation of true human personality, that is, resemblance to our Lord Jesus Christ. While so doing, however, she has never failed to inspire and promote ordered natural development. It is the truth of the Church's action on culture which is stressed by Pope Saint Pius X in his Encyclical Letter Il Fermo Proposito, addressed to the Bishops of Italy in 1905: [Droleskey note: I am, solely for the sake of my own time, simply copying and pasting the text quoted by Father Fahey while omitting his own few interjections ]:
4. Over and above spiritual goods, however, there are many goods of the
natural order over which the Church has no direct mission, although they flow as
a natural consequence from her divine mission. The light of Catholic revelation
is of such a nature that it diffuses itself with the greatest brilliance on
every science. The force of the evangelical counsels is so powerful that it
strengthens and firmly establishes the precepts of the natural law. The
fruitfulness of the doctrine and morality taught by Jesus Christ is so limitless
that providentially it sustains and promotes the material welfare of the
individual, the family, and society. The Church, even in preaching Jesus Christ
crucified, "stumbling-block and foolishness to the world," has become the
foremost leader and protector of civilization. She brought it wherever her
apostles preached. She preserved and protected the good elements of the ancient
pagan civilizations, disentangling from barbarism and educating for a new
civilization the peoples who flocked to her maternal bosom. She endowed every
civilization, gradually, but with a certain and always progressive step, with
that excellent mark which is today universally preserved. The civilization of
the world is Christian. The more completely Christian it is, the more true, more
lasting and more productive of genuine fruit it is. On the other hand, the
further it draws away from the Christian ideal, the more seriously the social
order is endangered. By the very nature of things, the Church has consequently
become the guardian and protector of Christian society. That fact was
universally recognized and admitted in other periods of history. In truth, it
formed a solid foundation for civil legislation. On that very fact rested the
relations between Church and State; the public recognition of the authority of
the Church in those matters which touched upon conscience in any manner, the
subordination of all the laws of the State to the Divine laws of the Gospel; the
harmony of the two powers in securing the temporal welfare of the people in such
a way that their eternal welfare did not suffer.
5. We have no need to tell you, Venerable Brethren, what prosperity and
well-being, what peace and harmony, what respectful subjection to authority and
what excellent government would be obtained and maintained in the world if one
could see in practice the perfect ideal of Christian civilization. Granting,
however, the continual battle of the flesh against the spirit, darkness against
light, Satan against God, such cannot be hoped for, at least in all its
fullness. Hence, raids are continually being made on the peaceful conquests of
the Church. The sadness and pain these cause is accentuated by the fact that
society tends more and more to be governed by principles opposed to that very
Christian ideal, and is even in danger of completely falling away from God.
6. This fact, however, is no reason to lose courage. The Church well knows
that the gates of hell will not prevail against her. Furthermore, she knows that
she will be sorely afflicted; that her apostles are sent as lambs among wolves;
that her followers will always bear the brunt of hatred and contempt, just as
her Divine Founder received hatred and contempt. So the Church advances
unafraid, spreading the Kingdom of God wherever she preaches and studying every
possible means she can use in regaining the losses in the kingdom already
conquered. "To restore all things in Christ" has always been the Church's motto,
and it is especially Our Own during these fearful moments through which we are
now passing. "To restore all things" -- not in any haphazard fashion, but "in
Christ"; and the Apostle adds, "both those in the heavens and those on the
earth." "To restore all things in Christ" includes not only what properly
pertains to the divine mission of the Church, namely, leading souls to God, but
also what We have already explained as flowing from that divine mission, namely,
Christian civilization in each and every one of the elements composing it. (Pope Saint Pius X, Il Fermo Proposito, June 11, 1905.)
For St. Thomas, as we have seen in a previous chapter, contemplation is the end of civil government, not that civil government is meant to aim at it as its proportionate end, but because it can prepare for it as for a higher end, superior to political ends and preferable to them. Thus, when a tiller of the soil makes ready the ground for planting, he is preparing for the flowers and fruits that will spring from the cultivated soil. Civilization, as we have already said, has directly in view the development of human nature here below., but mediately it is ordained to the Kingdom of God, that is, to the order of eternal and supernatural life begun here below, and it is from the Kingdom of God that it must receive the supreme rule and measure. Civilization is the development of the truly human life of the State. It belongs of itself to the natural order: metaphyics, art, science, politics, civic virtues. But it cannot attain its full development except under the supernatural sky of the Church. Christian civilization is the overflow of the Kingdom of heaven. It is the impress of the Mystical Body of Christ on man's natural social organization. (Father Denis Fahey, The Mystical Body of Christ in the Modern World, pp. 135-138; .p. 139.)
The right ordering of a nation is not a matter of black and white or brown and yellow.
The right ordering of a nation governed according to just principles that keep the scope of the powers of the civil state as limited as necessary does not the fortunes of a political party that might suffer as a result of a change in its demographic composition.
The right ordering of a nation is entirely dependent, as Father Fahey noted, upon the impress of the Mystical Body of Christ upon it.
Pope Saint Pius X explained in Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910, that civilization could be built only on the foundation of the true city, the Catholic City, and absolutely nothing else:
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.)
It is very difficult even for some Catholics to speak in these terms when they are steeped in the mythologies of the American founding without for one moment recognizing, no less admitting publicly, that Catholicism is the one and only foundation of personal and social order.
One of the supreme ironies in all of this is that the chief conciliar revolutionary these days, Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, having been formed by a welter of errors that seek to "reconcile" Modernity with what he thinks is Catholicism, not only rejects the contention that Catholicism is the one and only foundation of personal order, he embraces what "conservative" Catholics rightly find abhorrent: international organizations to control all manner of public policy, including international financial markets:
VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- A Vatican
document called for the gradual creation of a world political authority
with broad powers to regulate financial markets and rein in the
"inequalities and distortions of capitalist development."
The document said the current global financial crisis has revealed
"selfishness, collective greed and the hoarding of goods on a great
scale." A supranational authority, it said, is needed to place the
common good at the center of international economic activity.
The 41-page text was titled, "Toward Reforming the International
Financial and Monetary Systems in the Context of Global Public
Authority." Prepared by the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, it
was released Oct. 24 in several languages, including a provisional
translation in English.
The document cited the teachings of popes over the last 40 years on the
need for a universal public authority that would transcend national
interests. The current economic crisis, which has seen growing
inequality between the rich and poor of the world, underlines the
necessity to take concrete steps toward creating such an authority, it
One major step, it said, should
be reform of the international monetary system in a way that involves
developing countries. The document foresaw creation of a "central world
bank" that would regulate the flow of monetary exchanges; it said the
International Monetary Fund had lost the ability to control the amount
of credit risk taken on by the system.
The document also proposed:
-- Taxation measures on financial
transactions. Revenues could contribute to the creation of a "world
reserve fund" to support the economies of countries his by crisis, it
-- Forms of recapitalization of banks with public funds that make
support conditional on "virtuous" behavior aimed at developing the real
-- More effective management of financial shadow markets that are largely uncontrolled today.
Such moves would be designed to make the global economy more responsive
to the needs of the person, and less "subordinated to the interests of
countries that effectively enjoy a position of economic and financial
advantage," it said.
In making the case for a global authority, the document said the
continued model of nationalistic self-interest seemed "anachronistic and
surreal" in the age of globalization.
"We should not be afraid to propose new ideas, even if they might
destabilize pre-existing balances of power that prevail over the
weakest," it said. (Vatican document calls for global authority to regulate markets.)
Goodbye, legitimate sovereignty of individual nations, not that there's very much left to find these days, you understand.
Goodbye, private property.
Hello, One World Governance.
Although Vatican spokesflack "Father" Federico Lombardi, S.J., has said that the new document is not a work of the "papal magisterium" (true enough when one considers that Ratzinger/Benedict is not a legitimate Successor of Saint Peter). It is simply "an authoritative note of a Vatican agency." In other words, it's one of those unofficial, "nonbinding" Vatican documents that get released now and again that make it appear as though they have the absolute and official support of the conciliar church. Lombardi when out of his way to state that the "authoritative note of a Vatican agency should be not considered as what "Pope Benedict says."
This is very curious when one considers the simple fact that Ratzinger/Benedict himself called for such a global authority in Caritas in Veritate, June 30, 2009:
In the face of the unrelenting growth of global interdependence, there
is a strongly felt need, even in the midst of a global recession, for a
reform of the United Nations Organization, and likewise of economic institutions and international finance,
so that the concept of the family of nations can acquire real teeth.
One also senses the urgent need to find innovative ways of implementing
the principle of the responsibility to protect and of
giving poorer nations an effective voice in shared decision-making. This
seems necessary in order to arrive at a political, juridical and
economic order which can increase and give direction to international
cooperation for the development of all peoples in solidarity. To manage
the global economy; to revive economies hit by the crisis; to avoid any
deterioration of the present crisis and the greater imbalances that
would result; to bring about integral and timely disarmament, food
security and peace; to guarantee the protection of the environment and
to regulate migration: for all this, there is urgent need of a true
world political authority, as my predecessor Blessed John XXIII
indicated some years ago. Such an authority would need to be regulated
by law, to observe consistently the principles of subsidiarity and
solidarity, to seek to establish the common good, and to make a commitment to securing authentic integral human development inspired by the values of charity in truth.
Furthermore, such an authority would need to be universally recognized
and to be vested with the effective power to ensure security for all,
regard for justice, and respect for right. Obviously it would have to
have the authority to ensure compliance with its decisions from all
parties, and also with the coordinated measures adopted in various
international forums. Without this, despite the great progress
accomplished in various sectors, international law would risk being
conditioned by the balance of power among the strongest nations. The
integral development of peoples and international cooperation require
the establishment of a greater degree of international ordering, marked
by subsidiarity, for the management of globalization. They also require
the construction of a social order that at last conforms to the moral
order, to the interconnection between moral and social spheres, and to
the link between politics and the economic and civil spheres, as
envisaged by the Charter of the United Nations. (Caritas in veritate, June 29, 2009.)
It is no wonder that the "Pontifical" Council for Justice and Peace cited the "popes" of the "past forty years" as its "authority" on the global financial markets authority that would transfer more and more power to bureaucrats and bankers who despise the mere mention of the Holy Name of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ as our true popes warned us specifically about such entities:
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.. . .
But stranger still, alarming and saddening at the
same time, are the audacity and frivolity of men who call themselves
Catholics and dream of re-shaping society under such conditions, and of
establishing on earth, over and beyond the pale of the Catholic Church,
"the reign of love and justice" with workers coming from everywhere, of
all religions and of no religion, with or without beliefs, so long as
they forego what might divide them - their religious and philosophical
convictions, and so long as they share what unites them - a "generous
idealism and moral forces drawn from whence they can" When we consider
the forces, knowledge, and supernatural virtues which are necessary to
establish the Christian City, and the sufferings of millions of martyrs,
and the light given by the Fathers and Doctors of the Church, and the
self-sacrifice of all the heroes of charity, and a powerful hierarchy
ordained in heaven, and the streams of Divine Grace - the whole having
been built up, bound together, and impregnated by the life and spirit of
Jesus Christ, the Wisdom of God, the Word made man - when we think, I
say, of all this, it is frightening to behold new apostles eagerly
attempting to do better by a common interchange of vague idealism and
civic virtues. What are they going to produce? What is to come of this
collaboration? A mere verbal and chimerical construction in which we
shall see, glowing in a jumble, and in seductive confusion, the words
Liberty, Justice, Fraternity, Love, Equality, and human exultation, all
resting upon an ill-understood human dignity. It will be a tumultuous
agitation, sterile for the end proposed, but which will benefit the less
Utopian exploiters of the people. Yes, we can truly say that the
Sillon, its eyes fixed on a chimera, brings Socialism in its train.
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
mankind." (Pope Saint Pius X, Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910.)
The principles of The Sillon in France that were condemned by Pope Saint Pius X a century ago now are vital constituent elements of conciliarism's world view, which was shaped also by the principles of the heresy of Americanism that were condemned by Pope Leo XIII in Testem Benevolentiae Nostrae, January 22, 1899. Each of the falsehoods of Modernity have contributed in a variety of ways to producing the madness of the apostasy that is conciliarism, a madness that believes an global agency can be created to regulate international financial markets by relying upon the very Talmudic financiers and bureaucrats who run the world's finances.
Father Denis Fahey is excoriated to this day because he did not shrink from pointing out the truth as to who is charge of the warfare against the Social Reign of Christ the King in the world that has made of the conciliar "popes" but mere mouthpieces, at least more often than not, for the Talmudic agenda:
The Jewish nation has gradually become the
most strongly organised non-secret visible force working for the
elimination of the supernatural outlook in society and for the
installation of naturalism. The supernatural outlook insists that we are
a race whose highest life, the divine life of grace, by which the
Blessed Trinity dwells in our souls, was lost by the fall of Adam, but
restored by our Lord Jesus Christ. Naturalism denies the existence of
any life higher than natural life and maintains that social relations
must be organised on that basis. As members of Christ we are bound to
work for the return of society to our loving Saviour, so that social
organisation may be permeated with the reality of the supernatural life
of grace. Pope Pius XI insists on this in the encyclical on the Kingship
of Christ. Let us now take two examples of how our efforts to combat
naturalism will bring us into conflict with the Jews in their
preparations for the naturalistic Messias. The first example will deal
with the political, the second with the economic, organisation of the
States and nations are bound to acknowledge
the Catholic Church as the one true Church. Pope Pius XI shows that the
naturalistic spirit has gradually come to infect society, because “by
degrees the religion of Christ was put on the same level as false
religions, and placed ignominiously in the same category with them.”
Previously Pope Pius VII had written: “By the fact that the freedom of
all forms of worship is proclaimed, truth is confused with error, and
the holy and immaculate Spouse of Christ, outside of which there can be
no salvation, is placed on the same level as heretical sects, and even
as Jewish perfidy.” Now, since the French Revolution, states have placed
all forms of error on the same level as the Mystical Body of Christ,
and Jews have been admitted as full citizens of the once Christian
states. By granting full citizenship to members of the Jewish religion,
the state, to all intents and purposes, gives free rein to the
naturalistic moulding process pursued by the Jewish nation, in view of
the elimination of membership of Christ and the inauguration of the new
messianic, era. It thus shows itself indifferent in the struggle between
the true supernatural Messias, who has come, and the naturalistic
messias, to whom the Jews look forward.
In regard to the economic organisation of
the world, Pope Pius XI insists that “then only will it be possible to
unite all in harmonious striving for the common good, when all sections
of society have the intimate conviction that they are all members of a
single family and children of the same heavenly Father and further, that
they are one body in Christ, and everyone members one of another (Rom.
XIII, 5).” To have lasting peace in society we Catholics, then, must
strive to bring back the great truth that employers and employed must
treat one another as members of Christ. It is, as we have seen, part of
what we promise Christ as King, when we make submission to our Heavenly
Father along with Christ as Priest at Mass. Now, the aim of the Jewish
nation is to substitute for the supernatural Messias in whom we are
members of one body, the rule of the natural messias. Accordingly, in
virtue of Catholic principles, we must oppose the efforts of the Jews to
get control of the economic organisation of society. How can we succeed
in getting employers and employed to treat one another as members of
Christ, if we allow social organisation to pass into the hands of those
who have persistently denied and rejected His divine mission and for
whom the supernatural Kingdom of His Mystical Body is simply a
fraudulent attempt to turn Israel aside from its destiny.
We have, therefore, to resist and defeat
Jewish efforts to dominate social organisms and mould them along
naturalistic lines, in opposition to our Lord and His Mystical Body. The
guilds of the Middle Ages, which reflected the solidarity of the
members of the Mystical Body of Christ in economic organisation,
rendered wonderful services to their members in times of sickness and
need, thus efficaciously preventing Jewish money lenders from gaining
control of families and property. We too in our day must safeguard the
poor and needy from being tortured by Jewish money lenders. Our action
in this connection however, must not be merely the negative one of
combating illegalities and getting laws suitably amended, but the
positive one of setting up organisations which will render services
similar to those rendered by the guilds. Besides this safeguarding of
the poor and needy, there is the more far reaching question of the
creation of money and the regulation of the volume of exchange medium
used by Christian peoples. That power must not be allowed to fall into,
some would say to remain in, Jewish hands, or to fall into the hands of
nominal or erstwhile Christians, Masons and others, who are dependent
upon, or in alliance with Jews. We must combat Jewish attempts to bring
under their domination individual Catholics and Catholic countries, even
more vigorously than we must struggle against Freemasonry, because the
Jews form a more strongly organised and more cohesive naturalistic force
It is not easy to combat Jewish naturalism
in public life and at the same time keep oneself free from racial
hatred, which is itself but a form of naturalism. Yet it must be done.
On March 25th 1928, the Congregation of the Holy Office abolished the
association called The Friends of Israel, which in action and language
had departed from the mind of the Church and of the Fathers and had
adopted a mode of procedure abhorrent to the liturgy, thus falling into
naturalism. Nevertheless in that same decree, the Church insists upon
the fact that she “habitually prays for the Jewish people which was the
custodian of the divine promises down to Jesus Christ, and this, in
spite of, nay rather on account of, their subsequent blindness. Actuated
by this spirit of charity the Apostolic See has protected this people
against unjust treatment and, as it condemns every kind of hatred and
jealousy between nations, so in a special manner it condemns hatred of
the people once chosen by God, namely, that hatred commonly designated
Particular attention must be called to the phrase
once chosen by God. It is the second time that the Holy See uses the
phrase in recent years, the other being in the text of the prayer
approved of by Pope Pius XI for the consecration of the human race to
the Sacred Heart of Jesus. The Holy See is evidently insisting
upon the fact that there is no longer any chosen people or race, except
in so far as the Jews, who were the custodians of the divine promises
until the time of Jesus Christ, despite their official rejection of the
Supernatural Messias, have not ceased to be the members of His own race.
Certain nations have at times shown themselves, to some extent at
least, dazzled by the belief that they were the chosen people or race,
in the natural order. The pagan cult of race is but a modern
manifestation of naturalism.
The Jews look upon
themselves now as the Chosen People, because they hold that they are the
people destined to bring happiness to the world in the messianic era
yet to come. Catholic writers would do well not to pander to this
naturalism, by speaking of the Jews simply as the Chosen People, for
thus they increase the confusion of thought in modern times. The
Jews were chosen to be the custodians of the divine promises until the
coming of Jesus Christ, of whom they were to be the fount according to
the flesh. They have not ceased to be the race in which the “Word was
made flesh,” and as such, they are the object of special love on the
part of our Lord. But the naturalism by which they rejected Him and
continue to hold that the happiness of the world is to come through
their messianic aspirations is false and must be everywhere combated.
therefore, a twofold programme set out before us. We must, on the one
hand, defend our Lord’s rights and, on the other, seek to tear away the
veil from the eyes of those whose blindness hurts Him in a special way.
This is the programme set before us in these words of the Encyclical
Letter, Quas Primas of Pope Pius XI. “If the faithful generally would
understand that it is their duty to fight bravely and continually under
the banner of Christ their King, then, fired with apostolic zeal, they
would endeavour to win over to our Lord those who are estranged from Him
or know Him not, and would valiantly defend His rights.”
Pope Pius X insisted in most
appealing fashion upon the need for courage on the part of Catholics in
the modem world, in the discourse he pronounced on the 13th December
1908 at the beatification of Joan of Arc. To St. Joan’s mind the
coronation and anointing of the King of France were ever present,
because that anointing did homage to the universal Kingship of Christ
and linked up political power with the government of the Lord Jesus. She
was the saint sent to remind the world, at the decline of the Middle
Ages, of the formal principle of order in the world, the acknowledgment
of the Kingship of Christ. The saintly Pope spoke of the heroism of
Blessed Joan, and contrasted it with the timidity of so many Catholics
in our day: “In our time more than ever before, the chief
strength of the wicked lies in the cowardice and weakness of good men . .
. All the strength of Satan’s reign is due to the easy going weakness
of Catholics. Oh! if I might ask the Divine Redeemer, as the prophet
Zachary did in spirit: What are those wounds in the midst of thy hands?
the answer would not be doubtful: With these was I wounded in the house
of them that loved me. I was wounded by my friends, who did nothing to
defend me, and who, on every occasion, made themselves the accomplices
of my adversaries. And this reproach can be levelled at the weak and
timid Catholics of all countries.” (Father Denis Fahey, The Mystical Body of Christ in the Modern World, pp.269-272; 274- 277.)
One of the chief goals of Judeo-Masonry has been to make it socially unacceptable for Catholics to speak in such terms. This warfare against Christ the King and Mary our Immaculate Queen has been very successful. Many souls have been deceived and led into the errors of naturalism, becoming apologists for political parties and/or for a generic Christianity that is not of God.
Father Fahey explained how Catholics must never flinch, that they must never be intimidated by the false invocation of the phrase "anti-Semitism" to cease their opposition to the Talmudic program of naturalism:
As I was not able to bring out this
book when it was originally written, it has been laid aside for years.
In the meantime, the need for setting forth the full doctrine of the
Kingship of Christ has been forcibly brought home to me by the confusion
created in minds owing to the use of the term “Anti-Semitism.” The
Hitlerite naturalistic or anti-supernatural régime in Germany gave to
the world the odious spectacle of a display of Anti-Semitism, that is,
of hatred of the Jewish Nation. Yet all the propaganda about that
display of Anti-Semitism should not have made Catholics forget the
existence of age-long Jewish Naturalism or Anti-Supernaturalism.
Forgetfulness of the disorder of Jewish Naturalistic opposition to
Christ the King is keeping Catholics blind to the danger that is arising
from the clever extension of the term “Anti-Semitism,” with all its
war-connotation in the minds of the unthinking, to include any form of
opposition to the Jewish Nation’s naturalistic aims. For the leaders of
the Jewish Nation, to stand for the rights of Christ the King is
logically to be “anti-Semitic.”
In March, 1917, Pope Benedict XV wrote to the Archbishop of Tours: “In
the midst of the present upheavals, it is important to repeat to men
that by her divine institution the Catholic Church is the only ark of
salvation for the human race . . . . Accordingly, it is more seasonable
than ever to teach . . . that the truth which liberates, not only
individuals, but societies, is supernatural truth in all its fulness and
in all its purity, without attenuation, diminution or compromise: in a
word, exactly as Our Lord Jesus Christ delivered it to the world.”
These sublime words of the Vicar of Christ have nerved me to do all in
my power to set forth the opposition of every form of Naturalism,
including Jewish Naturalism, to the supernatural Reign of Christ the
King. In addition, for over twenty years I have been offering the Holy
Sacrifice of the Mass every year, on the Feasts of the Resurrection,
Corpus Christi, SS. Peter and Paul and the Assumption of Our Blessed
Mother, for the acceptance by the Jewish Nation of the Divine Plan for
order. Thus I have been striving to follow the example of our Divine
Master. Blessed Pius X insists that “though Jesus was kind to those who
had gone astray, and to sinners, He did not respect their erroneous
convictions, however sincere they appeared to be.”the need of combining
firmness in the proclamation of the integral truth with loving charity
towards those in error is insisted on, even more emphatically, by Pope
Pius XI: “Comprehending and merciful charity towards the erring,” he
writes, “and even towards the contemptuous, does not mean and can not
mean that you renounce in any way the proclaiming of, the insisting on,
and the courageous defence of the truth and its free and unhindered
application to the realities about you. The first and obvious duty the
priest owes to the world about him is service to the truth, the whole
truth, the unmasking and refutation of error in whatever form or
disguise it conceals itself.”
A day will come when the Jewish Nation
will cease to oppose order and will turn in sorrow and repentance to Him
Whom they rejected before Pilate. That will be a glorious triumph for
the Immaculate Heart of Our Blessed Mother. Until that day
dawns, however, their naturalistic opposition to the True Supernatural
Order of the world must be exposed and combated. (Father Denis Fahey, Foreword, The Kingship of Christ and the Conversion of the Jewish Nation.)
As is noted all the time on this site, even on those reduced occasions when new articles appear as I work now on volume two of my book, we are living through a period of terrible chastisements. There is no naturalistic or religiously indifferentist way out of this mess. The path out of this mess runs through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary and the fulfillment of her Fatima Message.
To combat the naturalism that is at the foundation of the modern civil
state--and with which the counterfeit church of conciliarism has made
its "official reconciliation"--that is at the root of social disorder
domestically and the erosion of national sovereignty by international
organizations and multinational corporations we must, of course, be
cleansed in the Sacred Tribunal of Penance as the merits of the Most
Precious Blood of Jesus are poured out upon our immortal souls as a
laver of redemption. We must be cleansed of our own enslavement to sin and
selfishness as we give unto the Most Blessed Trinity through the
Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary whatever merits we might earn
from our prayers and good works and penances and sufferings and
mortifications and from the calumnies that we must endure for refusing
any "communion" at all with wolves dressed up as "shepherds" who are
committed to and propagate the falsehoods of conciliarism. And we must
be ever earnest about fulfilling Our Lady's Fatima Message in our own
lives, praying as many Rosaries each day as our states-in-life permit.
Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon!
