Processing Along the Path to Antichrist
Thomas A. Droleskey
Assisi III will take take place one day from now, that is, on Thursday, October 27, 2011, the Vigil of the Feast of Saints Simon and Jude, on the twenty-fifth anniversary of the time that Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II, whose "feast" day was observed in conciliar churches on a worldwide basis on Saturday, October 22, 2011, 2011. Although the subject of an article of its own at some point, it is nevertheless interesting to note that the late false "pontiff's" "feast day" was supposed to be confined to the Diocese of Rome and all of the dioceses in Poland (see Decree concerning liturgical worship in honour of not so blessed John Paul II), a decision that was later reversed to permit conciliarists around the world to commemorate the day on which Wojtyla/John Paul was "installed" (not crowned) as the head of the counterfeit church of conciliarism. There is nothing stable, nothing secure in the counterfeit church of conciliarism, not even when it comes to their manufactured feast days for men who would never have been considered candidates for beatification or canonization by the Catholic Church.
Assisi III has been billed as being "different" from Assisi I, October 27, 1986, and Assisi II, January 24, 2002 (see Another Year of the Same Conciliar Apostasy, Part One, Another Year of the Same Conciliar Apostasy, Part Two, Another Year of the Same Conciliar Apostasy, Part Three, Not Interested in Assisi III, and Night and Day.) It is different in only one essential respect: the representatives of false religions will not pray publicly in the Basilica of Saint Mary of the Angels as occurred previously. The conciliarists are provided them with assigned rooms in the hostel adjacent to the basilica where they can worship their demons privately between 1:45 p.m. and 2:30 p.m. This is no less offensive to God than what has occurred earlier as the conciliar officials are conceding that the prayers of the leaders of false religions are efficacious in His sight, that God looks favorably upon false religions as instruments of "peace" to combat "secularism."
This is how the conciliarists have described the time for "reflection and/or personal prayer:"
Time of silence for reflection and / or personal prayer. Each participant will be assigned a room at the hostel adjacent to the Convent of St. Mary of the Angels. (Text was translated from the Italian original by Google Translate. Here is the link to the Italian original for those of you conversant in that language: Program of the Day.)
There will be a time, however, for the gathered syncretists and devil-worshipers to join together with Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, who decided to call for another Assisi event after the killing of Christians by Mohammedans in Egypt late last year to renew their "commitment to peace," which begs the question as to how it is possible for men who worship devils to be "instruments of peace" when they refuse to believe in and then submit to the Prince of Peace Himself, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Here is how translated text from the program of the day describes for the "solemn renewal of the commitment to peace:"
16:30 Final meeting:
- Opening welcome by Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran (President of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue)
- Renewal of Solemn Commitment for Peace. When reading only background music for the duration of the commitments
- Introduction of His Holiness Bartholomew I (Archbishop of Constantinople, Ecumenical Patriarch)
- Lutheran World Federation
- His Eminence Aleksandr (Moscow Patriarchate)
- Baptist World Alliance
- Metropolitan Gregorios (Syrian Patriarchate - Orthodox of Antioch)
- Rev. Dr. Setri Nyomi (World Communion of Reformed Churches)
- Guillermo Hurtado (Representative Non-Believers)
- Conclusion of the Holy Father Benedict XVI
- Moment of silence
- A symbolic act (on and delivered to the Heads of Delegations lamps). During the delivery of the lamps Choir performs "Simple Prayer". After the singing boys withdraw from the delegation heads lamps.
- Monition Cardinal Kurt Koch (President of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity)
- Exchange of peace among the delegates.
- Leave the Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI
- Final song "Canticle of the Creatures" (performed by the Choir of the Diocese of Assisi)
18:00 The Holy Father and the heads of delegation who want to stop briefly in front of the tomb of St. Francis.
18:30 Buses depart in the same order of arrival at a time of Assisi train station. First buses will leave with the delegates, then the Mini-Bus with the heads of delegation. (Program of the Day.)
This madness is a violation of both the First and Second Commandments. It is syncretism and religious indifferentism no matter how many times the false "pontiff" and his toadies say that it is not.
Consider, for example, the translated words of Peter "Cardinal" Turkson the president of the "Pontifical" Council for Justice and Peace, held on Tuesday, October 18, 2011, to discuss the meaning of the Assisi III event, which is being billed as a "pilgrimage" for "truth" and "peace" by "pilgrims" from around the world:
This is why Benedict XVI wishes to bring the experience of Assisi 2011, as well as in the sign of prayer and fasting, under the figure of the pilgrimage, which involves ascent, purification, convergence towards a higher intake of a community commitment. The truth makes freer and more able to be together peacemakers.
The search for truth is a precondition for better acquainted, to overcome all forms of prejudice, but also of syncretism, obscuring their identities. That we all share a common path in the search for truth is to recognize
its specificity, based on what makes us alike - we are all capable of
truth - and several together. Not all, in fact, possess the truth in the same way, the it, then,
received a gift does not preclude a more detailed and feel fellow
travelers of every man and woman, because it is never exhausted.
Sincerely and humbly seek the truth means, then, renew a look of benevolence toward others, to accept one another, communicate better and work
together for the common good, which can converge on the level of natural
reason. It is not always possible dialogue on a theological or doctrinal, while it seems easier to dialogue on the life and works.
The search for truth is also provided to reduce the fanaticism and fundamentalism, for which peace is achieved by the imposition on others of their convictions.
It is, again, the condition for overcoming the babel of languages and that secularism will marginalize the human family, the One who is the Beginning and the End.
It is, ultimately, the premise for any moral renewal of individuals and institutions. (Program of the Day.)
Catholics "share a common path in the search for truth? We have the Truth. He is the the Second Person of the Most Blessed Trinity made Man in the Virginal and Immaculate Womb of His Most Blessed Mother. Search for truth? Work together for the "common good" when social order depends upon the right ordering of souls as members of the Catholic Church, outside of which there is no salvation and without which there can be no true social order.
Once again, my few and mostly penurious readers who like to look at the Donations page updates without ever responding to them (a gentle and most subtle little hint), consider these words of Pope Leo XIII that were addressed to Italian Catholics on the dangers of Freemasonry and related organizations and everything to do with the Masonic spirit of religious indifferentism:
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.)
"Cardinal" Turkson's remarks are alien to the Catholic Faith. They are alien to truth. They are alien to the good of the souls of the "religious leaders" who are being invited to Assisi.
Each of the leaders of the false religions who will be participating in tomorrow's blasphemous, sacrilegious travesty of paganism is well aware that Catholics believe concerning Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. They have heard all about Him. They know about the Catholic Church and her teaching. They do not, therefore, have to be treated as Saint Paul did with the Greeks when he preached to them about the "unknown God" at Areopagus in Athens during his missionary travels (cf. Acts 17: 23). The conciliarists, however, act as though they can put aside "doctrinal and theological issues" in order to concentrate on the what "unites" the world's "religions," each of which is said to have an "element of truth."
Here is what Pope Saint Pius X wrote about putting aside doctrinal "differences:"
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.
This being said, what must be
thought of the promiscuity in which young Catholics will be caught up
with heterodox and unbelieving folk in a work of this nature? Is it not a
thousand-fold more dangerous for them than a neutral association? What
are we to think of this appeal to all the heterodox, and to all the
unbelievers, to prove the excellence of their convictions in the social
sphere in a sort of apologetic contest? Has not this contest lasted for
nineteen centuries in conditions less dangerous for the faith of
Catholics? And was it not all to the credit of the Catholic Church? What
are we to think of this respect for all errors, and of this strange
invitation made by a Catholic to all the dissidents to strengthen their
convictions through study so that they may have more and more abundant
sources of fresh forces? What are we to think of an association
in which all religions and even Free-Thought may express themselves
openly and in complete freedom? For the Sillonists who, in public
lectures and elsewhere, proudly proclaim their personal faith, certainly
do not intend to silence others nor do they intend to prevent a
Protestant from asserting his Protestantism, and the skeptic from
affirming his skepticism. Finally, what are we to think of a Catholic
who, on entering his study group, leaves his Catholicism outside the
door so as not to alarm his comrades who, “dreaming of disinterested
social action, are not inclined to make it serve the triumph of
interests, coteries and even convictions whatever they may be”? Such is
the profession of faith of the New Democratic Committee for Social
Action which has taken over the main objective of the previous
organization and which, they say, “breaking the double meaning which
surround the Greater Sillon both in reactionary and anti-clerical
circles”, is now open to all men “who respect moral and religious forces
and who are convinced that no genuine social emancipation is possible
without the leaven of generous idealism.” (Pope Saint Pius X, Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910.)
Pope Pius XI exploded the sophistry of false ecumenism's efforts to combat "irreligion" as it is impossible to fight evil with the devil's instruments, which every single false religion just happens to be:
Is it not right, it is often repeated, indeed, even consonant with duty,
that all who invoke the name of Christ should abstain from mutual
reproaches and at long last be united in mutual charity? Who would dare
to say that he loved Christ, unless he worked with all his might to
carry out the desires of Him, Who asked His Father that His disciples
might be "one." And did not the same Christ will that His disciples
should be marked out and distinguished from others by this
characteristic, namely that they loved one another: "By this shall all
men know that you are my disciples, if you have love one for another"? All
Christians, they add, should be as "one": for then they would be much
more powerful in driving out the pest of irreligion, which like a
serpent daily creeps further and becomes more widely spread, and
prepares to rob the Gospel of its strength. These things and
others that class of men who are known as pan-Christians continually
repeat and amplify; and these men, so far from being quite few and
scattered, have increased to the dimensions of an entire class, and have
grouped themselves into widely spread societies, most of which are
directed by non-Catholics, although they are imbued with varying
doctrines concerning the things of faith. This undertaking is so
actively promoted as in many places to win for itself the adhesion of a
number of citizens, and it even takes possession of the minds of very
many Catholics and allures them with the hope of bringing about such a
union as would be agreeable to the desires of Holy Mother
Church, who has indeed nothing more at heart than to recall her erring
sons and to lead them back to her bosom. But in reality beneath these
enticing words and blandishments lies hid a most grave error, by which
the foundations of the Catholic faith are completely destroyed. (Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos, January 6, 1928.)
Pope Pius XI was explaining the impossibility of Catholics working with Protestants to combat "irreligion." Not even he, I do not think, could have imagined a day when putative "popes" would be claiming that it would be possible to work with those who deny the very Sacred Divinity of Christ the King to do so.
Pope Leo XIII reminded us that it is impossible for there to be unity among men unless they are united in the same Faith, the Catholic Faith:
Agreement and union of minds is the necessary foundation of this
perfect concord amongst men, from which concurrence of wills and
similarity of action are the natural results. Wherefore, in His
divine wisdom, He ordained in His Church Unity of Faith; a virtue which
is the first of those bonds which unite man to God, and whence we
receive the name of the faithful - "one Lord, one faith, one baptism"
(Eph. iv., 5). That is, as there is one Lord and one baptism, so should
all Christians, without exception, have but one faith. And so the
Apostle St. Paul not merely begs, but entreats and implores Christians
to be all of the same mind, and to avoid difference of opinions: "I
beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you
all speak the same thing, and that there be no schisms amongst you, and
that you be perfect in the same mind and in the same judgment" (I Cor.
i., 10). Such passages certainly need no interpreter; they speak clearly
enough for themselves. Besides, all who profess Christianity
allow that there can be but one faith. It is of the greatest importance
and indeed of absolute necessity, as to which many are deceived, that
the nature and character of this unity should be recognized. And, as We
have already stated, this is not to be ascertained by conjecture, but by
the certain knowledge of what was done; that is by seeking for and
ascertaining what kind of unity in faith has been commanded by Jesus
Christ. (Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum, June 29, 1896.)
It was Pope Pius XI who explained clearly there is one and only one foundation of peace, the God-Man Himself
It is possible to sum up all We have said in one
word, "the Kingdom of Christ." For Jesus Christ reigns over the minds of
individuals by His teachings, in their hearts by His love, in each
one's life by the living according to His law and the imitating of His
example. Jesus reigns over the family when it, modeled after the holy
ideals of the sacrament of matrimony instituted by Christ, maintains
unspotted its true character of sanctuary. In such a sanctuary of love,
parental authority is fashioned after the authority of God, the Father,
from Whom, as a matter of fact, it originates and after which even it is
named. (Ephesians iii, 15) The obedience of the children imitates that
of the Divine Child of Nazareth, and the whole family life is inspired
by the sacred ideals of the Holy Family. Finally, Jesus Christ
reigns over society when men recognize and reverence the sovereignty of
Christ, when they accept the divine origin and control over all social
forces, a recognition which is the basis of the right to command for
those in authority and of the duty to obey for those who are subjects, a
duty which cannot but ennoble all who live up to its demands. Christ
reigns where the position in society which He Himself has assigned to
His Church is recognized, for He bestowed on the Church the status and
the constitution of a society which, by reason of the perfect ends which
it is called upon to attain, must be held to be supreme in its own
sphere; He also made her the depository and interpreter of His divine
teachings, and, by consequence, the teacher and guide of every other
society whatsoever, not of course in the sense that she should abstract
in the least from their authority, each in its own sphere supreme, but
that she should really perfect their authority, just as divine grace
perfects human nature, and should give to them the assistance necessary
for men to attain their true final end, eternal happiness, and by that
very fact make them the more deserving and certain promoters of their
happiness here below.
It is, therefore, a fact which cannot be questioned
that the true peace of Christ can only exist in the Kingdom of Christ
-- "the peace of Christ in the Kingdom of Christ." It is no less
unquestionable that, in doing all we can to bring about the
re-establishment of Christ's kingdom, we will be working most
effectively toward a lasting world peace. (Pope Pius XI, Ubi Arcano Dei Consilio, December 23, 1922.)
There is no need for candlelight processions to "search for truth." Men must be invited to convert to the true Faith, and it is not good enough for the Divine Redeemer, Christ the King, that men claiming to be "popes" make gratuitous references to Him when speaking before those of different religions without even once explaining to them that the salvation of their own immortal souls is imperiled by persisting in false religions that are hideous in the sight of God and ruinous of the souls of men and thus destructive of the "world peace" they claim to be fostering by means of their ecumenical travesties that they seek to dress up with the veneer of Catholicism.
A communique issued by the Italian district of the Society of Saint Pius X calling upon Catholics to make reparation before Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ's Real Presence in the Most Blessed Sacrament for the events that start to unfold this evening in the Basilica of Saint Peter as a Catholic prayer service in preparation for the Assisi III even takes place tomorrow. The communiqué, quoted on the English language edition of an Italian website, is very good--as far as it goes, that is:
“We invite all faithful and friends to join together
in prayer and in this day of fasting, for the following three reasons:
1) To compensate for the celebration of a historic event which more that
any other, has humiliated the Catholic Church, putting her on the
same level as false religions; 2) In order for Christ our Lord to remove
the veil that is covering the hearts of Churchmen, making them recognise that
only one Peace is possible between men: that of Christ in the Kingdom
of Christ. Pax Christi in Regno Christi; 3) So that our Lord may
eliminate the growing breeding grounds for war across the world, which
seem to be His answer to the “peace” meeting in Assisi.” (From the Vatican Insider.)
While this statement is quite good as far as it goes, leaving aside any speculation as to what it might mean for the Society of Saint Pius X's "reconciliation" with the conciliar authorities or who, other than the priests of the Society's Italian district, may have approved its issuance, it is premised upon the belief that the conciliar officials are "churchmen" when they are but apostates who expelled themselves from the bosom of Holy Mother Church long ago (see The Chair is Still Empty). The Catholic Church is no way responsible for such travesties as will commence this evening in Rome and continue tomorrow in Assisi before being concluded on the Friday, October 28, 2011, the Feast of Saints Simon and Jude, in Rome:
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.)
The Assisi III "peace plan" of the madmen who belong to the rubber room of conciliarism is not Heaven's Peace Plan. Our Lady's Fatima Message is Heaven's Peace Plan. Nothing else. Don't be fooled by the conciliar revolutionaries.
If we are faithful to the
revelations of the Most Sacred Heart given by Our Blessed Lord and
Saviour Jesus Christ to such mystics as Saint Gertrude the Great and
Saint John Eudes and to Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque, then we can be confident
that these great saints will intercede for us from Heaven so that we can
imitate their complete self-surrender to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus as
we, who have been given the privilege to live after Our Lord sent His
Most Blessed Mother to the Cova da Iria in Fatima, Portugal, to
establish devotion her Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, attempt to lead
all souls, including adherents of every single false religion, to the font of Divine Mercy through the Immaculate Heart of
Mary out of which It was formed and to which It is perfected united.
We are loved by the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. As clients of the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, may it be the singular longing of our own hearts to be content that this all-encompassing, matchless love of Love Incarnate rather than compromise on any point of the Holy Faith at any time for any reason, no less to do so to be respected by those of false religions in an effort to use their "elements of truth" to work for "peace and justice."
May these words of Pope Leo the Great inspire us to oppose conciliarism's ecumenical travesties such as will start this evening and continue through Friday:
But it is vain for them to adopt the name of catholic, as they
do not oppose these blasphemies: they must believe them, if they can
listen so patiently to such words. (Pope Saint Leo the Great, Epistle XIV, To Anastasius, Bishop of Thessalonica, St. Leo the Great | Letters 1-59 )
