Putting Lipstick On The Conciliar Pig
Thomas A. Droleskey
One of the advantages in growing older is that one comes to realize over the course of the decades that there is very little new that happens in human affairs. This is why, over and above my coming to understand the false principles upon which the modern civil state is founded, I am not in the least "excited" about any candidate for public office. We've "been there, done that," folks. Those who want to get "excited" about the next "most important election ever" can do so. Having lived through Republican statists and Democratic statists, having actually worked within the context of electoral politics for others and for myself, having studied and taught politics and government for almost the entirety of my life, I know that there is only one thing that can come from naturalists: more naturalism. That's about as succinct that I can be on this subject, about which so many articles have been written on this site (for a brief listing of such articles, please see
No Christ the King? No Rosary? No Good Cause).
Similarly, I have lived through getting "excited" about new "episcopal" appointments made by the conciliar "popes." Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II gave us the "pro-life" John Joseph O'Connor as the conciliar "archbishop" of New York, a man who would protect moral perverts within his clergy and who, apart from telling a Catholic man that "God was smiling" on his "conversion" to Talmudic Judaism, told a the Masonic B'Nai Brith organization in March of 1998 that "Catholicism and Judaism were meant to coexist side by side until the end of time. This not what I teach. This is what my boss, Pope John Paul II, teaches, and I work for my boss." Jewish rabbis were amazed at what they heard. Here is an account offered by a "papal" knight, the late Rabbi Leon Klenicki, a pro-abortion rabbi who was present at that Anti-Defamation League dinner in 1998:
Once we invited him [John "Cardinal O'Connor] to talk at one of the Anti-Defamation League dinners. He was there to help present a booklet we had put out. During his speech, he told a story about how he once went to a Reform synagogue and he was the only one there with a yarmulke. Several Reform rabbis who were there looked at each others--I think they couldn't believe it--but everybody was laughing. The Cardinal had a serious point, too. Later that night, he said that he was in pain because there are Jews who do not want to exercise their Judaism because of assimilation or other reasons. It is their duty to practice their faith, he said, to prove that God exists and to refute the Holocaust. He sounded very much like a rabbi when he spoke. The crowd was all around him afterwards, shaking his hand and embracing him. I told him if he ever needed a job I knew a congregation that could use him. (Page 148 of Full of Grace: An Oral Biography of John Cardinal O'Connor.)
"Cardinal" O'Connor's conciliar successor as the "bishop" of Scranton, Pennsylvania, James Clifford Timlin, was, despite all of his external "generosity" to John Paul II's Ecclesia Dei motu proprio of July 2, 1988, a protector of perverted clergy, including the morally corrupt Society of Saint John, which has now reorganized itself under the protection of a new enabling conciliar "bishop,"
Rogelio Ricardo Livieres Plano of the Diocese of Ciudad del Este, Paraguay.
Great "hope" was held out in the Twin Cities of Saint Paul and Minneapolis when John Roach, the conciliar "archbishop" there from May 28, 1975, to September 8, 1995, was replaced by the "conservative" "Bishop" Harry Flynn, who was appointed as Roach's coadjutor "archbishop" by John Paul II on April 24, 1994. "Archbishop" Flynn turned out to be a supporter of the "rainbow" agenda of the lavender brigade, showing himself to be an enemy of truth and a servant of the servants of the enemies of Christ the King when he had the rector of the Basilica of Saint Paul denounce the recently deceased Father Paul Marx., O.S.B., as an "anti-Semite" at the beginning of a Human Life International conference in 1997 because Father Marx had explained that many adherents of the Talmud were in the forefront of promoting chemical and surgical baby-killing in the United States of America and around the world.
"Archbishop" Flynn let the nest of liturgical abuses at Saint Joan of Arc Church in Minneapolis, Minnesota, that go beyond even the "officially" approved abuses contained within the liturgical abuse par excellence, the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo service. They're still at it at
Saint Joan of Arc Church under Flynn's conciliar successor, John Clayton Nienstedt, featuring such New Age pagan links as

Then there was the "hope" engendered amongst "conservative" and traditionally-minded Catholics in the People's Republic of Bernardiana, er, the Archdiocese of Chicago, when the conciliar "Archbishop" of Portland, Oregon, Francis Eugene George, O.M.I., was installed as the successor of the late Joseph "Cardinal" Bernardin, who was a true bishop, on May 7, 1997. "Cardinal" George knew all about the moral depravity of the disgraced former conciliar "bishop" of Springfield, Illinois, Daniel Leo Ryan, and chose to protect him against Roman Catholic Faithful founder and president Stephen Brady's courageous expose of the truth about Ryan's unprenentant, recidivist abuse of his clergy and others. "Cardinal" George also knew all about "Father" Daniel McCormack
whom George protected and reassigned even after he had definite knowledge of his morally perverse criminal behavior (STATEMENT OF FRANCIS "CARDINAL: GEORGE, O.M.I. ARCHBISHOP OF CHICAGO).
This is the same Francis "Cardinal" George who has only mildly slapped the hands of the radical "Father" Michael Pfleger, the pastor of Saint Sabina Church in Chicago, Illinois, who has invited endless numbers of pro-aborts to preach from his pulpit, including the nefarious "Reverend" Al Sharpton and the pro-abortion singer named Harry Belefonte back in the year 2003. Pfleger, who has been a strong and indefatigable supporter of pro-abortion President Barack Hussein Obama, has preached from the "pulpit" that once belonged to the "Reverend" Jeremiah Wright at Trinity "United Church of Christ" in Chicago. What has "Cardinal" George done other than to slap Pfleger's hands? Nothing. Indeed, "Cardinal" George praised Pfleger openly only two days ago at an event where Pfleger received a "racial justice" award from George himself (see Full Remarks of Francis "Cardinal" George). And, of course, Francis "Cardinal" George went to Utah two months ago to praise the "common ground" that exists between Catholics and Mormoms (see
Union of Americanistsand an article by a sedeplenist that focuses on the false nature of Mormonimsm,
Sick Ecumenism or Dereliction?)
He did, however, grabbed the late Gregory Morrow, a spirited octogenarian who attempted to defend the Faith as best as he could within the conciliar structures in Chicago, by the lapels outside of a church once to demand that he, Greg Morrow, stop "hounding" him about the problems in the archdiocese., including the retention of many Bernardin-era appointees in the archdiocesan chancery office and the continued use at the time of general absolution in some parishes. Ah, yes, the "courage" of these "conservative" conciliar "bishops."
Hope was held out by the conciliarists in the revolutionary stronghold known as Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in 2002 when Chairman Mao, er, Rembert George Weakland, O.S.B., was disgraced into retiring on May 24 of that year. Weakland's replacement was the "happy" "bishop," Timothy Dolan, a "conservative" from the Archdiocese of Saint Louis, Missouri. Timothy Dolan is a true conciliar revolutionary man, committed to false ecumenism and religious liberty and separation of Church and State.
"Archbishop" Dolan went to great lengths when he was still the conciliar "archbishop" of the Milwaukee to apologize for the "appearance" caused by Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI's "lifting" of the "excommunication" imposed by Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II on Bishop Richard Williamson. Timothy "I am to be a happy bishop" Dolan, who had already appointed him as the conciliar successor to Edward "Cardinal" Egan (see Making John L Sullivan Look Like Mister Peepers), called for a meeting with Talmudic leaders in Milwaukee so as to get their "pulse" on "inter-faith" relations in the wake of the "embarrassment" caused by the "appearance" of Ratzinger/Benedict's actions:
The executive director of Milwaukee’s Jewish Council for Community Relations received an unexpected invitation last week.
Paula Simon was part of a small group of the city’s Jewish and Catholic leadership invited to the home of Archbishop Timothy Dolan, to discuss interfaith relations in the wake of Pope Benedict XVI’s decision to end the Vatican’s ban against a bishop who had denied the Holocaust. The invitation from the archbishop came just days before he, head of Milwaukee’s Catholic diocese for seven years, was named by the pope to succeed Cardinal Edward Egan as archbishop of New York City’s diocese.
“He wanted to get a pulse of the Jewish community,” Simon said. “He wanted to make sure that we understood that what the pope did did not reflect what he [Archbishop Dolan] felt.”
Simon, in a telephone interview with The Jewish Week, said the archbishop apologized for the impression given by the pope’s action that the Catholic Church condones denial of the Holocaust’s historical authenticity. “We’re embarrassed. This is inappropriate,” she reported the archbishop as saying about lifting of the excommunication of Bishop Richard Williamson, who has said the Holocaust was exaggerated and no Jews died in the Nazi gas chambers.
“He could have sent a quick note or e-mail” to express his feelings, Simon said. “It could have been done in a phone call.”
“You can’t put a value on that kind of relationship,” she told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. “It’s not lip service. It’s real.”
Simon cited the meeting, and the archbishop’s unsolicited outreach to Milwaukee’s Jewish community, as the latest examples of Dolan’s “personal commitment to interfaith issues” that have included one-on-one meetings with Jewish leaders as well as more formal interaction.
Other representatives of Milwaukee’s Jewish community and spokesmen for national Jewish organizations praised Archbishop Dolan as a charismatic member of the clergy who will help to restore Jewish-Catholic relations that have stalled in recent years because of several divisive issues. They said the archbishop, with a more effusive personal style, is likely to bring a new tone to interfaith activities here, which were cool under Cardinal Edward Egan, New York’s outgoing archbishop.
During an introductory press conference here on Monday, the archbishop called his work in Jewish-Catholic dialogue in Milwaukee, and before that in St. Louis, “intensely rewarding and enriching.”
With Dolan’s arrival here, “The issue of dialogue is back on the agenda,” said Abraham Foxman, national director of the Anti-Defamation League.
Foxman said ties between the Jewish community and the Catholic Church, which grew warmer in the early 1960s after the Vatican II changes supported by Pope John XXIII, have cooled in the last few years because of such issues as the Latin prayer for the conversion of Jews, attempts by some hardliners to repeal Vatican II and the statements of Bishop Williamson.
“These are chips in the relationship,” Foxman said, adding that the leader of New York’s Catholics automatically becomes a leading voice in interfaith work because of the size of the city’s Jewish and Catholic populations. “We need to put Jewish-Catholic relations back on the track.”
While the archbishop is considered a hardliner on many Catholic issues like abortion and celibacy of priests, his conservative outlook is not expected to detract from his work with the Jewish community, Foxman said. “He is an open person, open to people and ideas.”
As a participant in the Conference of Bishops’ interfaith activities, Archbishop Dolan worked closely with Baltimore’s Cardinal William Keeler, who chaired the conference’s Committee for Ecumenical and Interreligious Affairs, and served as the church’s point man with the Jewish community. With Cardinal Keeler, at 77, in poor health, Archbishop Dolan — likely to be elevated soon to cardinal — will be in position to play a greater role in ecumenical affairs on a national scale, the Jewish interfaith leaders said.
“I never got the sense that he wanted to backtrack on [the ecumenical liberalizations advanced by] Vatican II,” said Rabbi David Cohen, spiritual leader of Congregation Sinai in Milwaukee, who had worked with the archbishop on interfaith activities.
“He will perforce become much more active,” said Rabbi A. James Rudin, the American Jewish Committee’s senior interreligious adviser.
Archbishop Dolan, 59, is an author who has written three books on Catholic spirituality, and a raconteur who is viewed as warmer and more accessible — according to members of the Catholic and Jewish communities — than his predecessor, Cardinal Egan.
In one well-publicized incident, Archbishop Dolan presided at an open-air Mass while wearing a “cheese-head” hat popular among Green Bay Packer fans.
Rabbi Rudin said Archbishop Dolan “is going to bring back some of the style of O’Connor,” referring to Cardinal John O’Connor, a gregarious man who preceded Cardinal Egan as leader of the New York Diocese. “I think New York’s Jewish community will take to him, and he to the community.”
Simon said the archbishop “understands the intrinsic value of interfaith relations, particularly relations with the Jewish community.”
While the Milwaukee diocese was forced in recent months to reduce its budget because of the deepening recession, Archbishop Dolan retained funding for the department that conducts ecumenical activities with the Jewish community, she said. “That attests to his commitment.”
When hosting interfaith meetings, the archbishop would call the Jewish participants in advance to determine their kashrut preferences, said Rabbi Ronald Shapiro of Milwaukee’s Congregation Shalom.
The rabbi was invited by the archbishop to take part in a memorial service for the late Pope John Paul II, recite Kaddish in the pope’s memory and explain the meaning of the Aramaic prayer.
Archbishop Dolan was part of an interfaith mission that visited Auschwitz in 2005 under the aegis of Sacred Heart University’s Center for Christian-Jewish Understanding.
“Though I had no doubt that he [previously] understood the significance of the Holocaust,” the visit to the death camp “reinforced the responsibility that religious leaders have” in fighting discrimination.
“He was deeply moved at Auschwitz,” said Rabbi Tsvi Blanchard, who was also on the 2005 mission.
Rabbi Blanchard, director of organizational development at CLAL – The National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, said the archbishop “really understands human vulnerability.”
Rabbi Marc Berkson, spiritual leader of Congregation Emanu-El B’ne Jeshurun in Milwaukee and past president of the Wisconsin Council of Rabbis, called the archbishop “a very pragmatic man. His involvement with the Jewish community deepened over time.”
Rabbi Berkson tells of a speech Archbishop Dolan gave at a Friday night service at Milwaukee’s Congregation Shalom in 2005.
Beginning his speech with a remark that “If I seem a bit distracted it’s only because, usually, I’m the only one in the room wearing a yarmulke,” the archbishop went on to talk about Jewish scriptures, John XXIII, John Paul II, Martin Buber and Abraham Joshua Heschel.
“I am so shaken and saddened by the crimes, bigotry, violence and hatred that have been visited upon you by spiritual relatives of mine whose hideous actions pervert the genuine teaching of Jesus and His Church,” he said.
“The talk he gave that night was damn impressive,” Rabbi Berkson said. “You guys are very lucky to be getting him in New York.”
During his speech in Congregation Shalom, the rabbi said, Archbishop Dolan called that Shabbat’s bar mitzvah boy to the bima and gave him the pink skullcap the archbishop had worn on his head.
The youth wore the pink kipa the next day at his bar mitzvah, and “the kid still treasures that kipa,” Rabbi Berkson said.
Simon said the archbishop, following the recent meeting with Jewish leaders, communicated his feeling about the Bishop Williamson controversy to priests in the Milwaukee diocese. “His heart is there. His passion is there. Theologically, he is there.”
At the meeting, she asked Archbishop Dolan about reports that he would be leaving for New York. “The rumors were flying last week.” The archbishop confirmed that he was among six finalists for the New York position.
“I am disappointed that he’s leaving,” Simon said. But she is not surprised. “Many people thought he was a rising star when he came to Milwaukee.” (Dolan’s Warmth Praised: Jewish-Catholic Relations Seen Getting Boost With New Archbishop)
Dolan has compounded this obeisance to the false religion of Talmudic Judaism in his capacity as the conciliar "archbishop" of New York, where he succeeded another "conservative," Edward "Cardinal" Egan, who served as an enabler of pro-abortion Catholic politicians by refusing to speak out against them and who, as the conciliar "bishop" of Bridgeport, Connecticut, claimed that his priests and presbyters were not under his control as they were in the formal employ of the parishes, obviating the truth that he was the who appointed these men to their parish positions. In addition to praising the work of the Anti-Defamation League of B'Nai Brith, an unreconstructed supporter of baby-killing and perversity under cover of the civil law, Dolan has in the past praised the "Judeo-Christian Humanism" of the American founding (see Make That Judeo-Masonic Humanism, Thank You).
Like examples could go ad infinitum, ad nauseam. I am just too tired to list them all. The point is, of course, that the only thing that you are going to get from a conciliarist is concilairism, that which is at war with Catholicism.
How so? Here's a little review, just in case you've eaten too much during the Easter Octave and have minds that a little heavy from all of that feasting from which I am restrained from indulging until more of that which is really easy for me to gain and very hard to lose, body weight, is lost than has been dumped in the past seven weeks, of the many ways in which a prototypical conciliar revolutionary, Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, defects form the Catholic Faith:
Ratzinger/Benedict denies the nature of dogmatic truth, cleaving to philosophically absurd notion that dogmatic truth can never be expressed adequately at any one point in time, that each expression of dogma is necessarily "conditioned" by the historical circumstances in which it was pronounced. Condemned by the [First] Vatican Council, Pope Saint Pius X in Pascendi Dominici Gregis, September 8, 1907, and The Oath Against Modernism, and by Pope Pius XII in Humani Generis, August 12, 1950.
Ratzinger/Benedict specifically rejects the "ecumenism of the return," thereby making a mockery of the exhortations of one true pope after another for such a return of non-Catholics to the true Church.
Ratzinger/Benedict embraces concilairism's definition of "religious liberty" as he praises the nonexistent ability of false religions to "contribute" to the "betterment" of nations and the world. Condemned by Pope Pius VII in Post Tam Diuturnas, April 29, 1814, Pope Gregory XVI in Mirari Vos, August 15, 1832, and by Pope Pius IX in Quanta Cura, December 8, 1864.)
Ratzinger/Benedict endorses the "separation of Church and State," a thesis called absolutely false by Pope Saint Pius X in Vehementer Nos, February 11, 1906, and rejects the obligation of the civil state to recognize the Catholic Church as its official religion and to pursue the common temporal good in light of man's Last End, an obligation reiterated by pope after pope following the rise of the religiously indifferentist civil state of Modernity.
Ratzinger/Benedict has entered two mosques and three synagogues, engaging in acts of apostasy and blasphemy as he, who believes himself to be the Vicar of Christ on earth, has permitted himself to be treated as an inferior as he has treated places of false worship that are hideous to God as worthy of respect, thereby scandalizing His little ones no end.
Ratzinger/Benedict has termed Mount Hiei in Japan, where the adherents of the Tendei sect of Buddhism, worship their devils, as "sacred."
Joseph Ratzinger has long rejected the official philosophy of the Catholic Church, the Scholasticism of Saint Thomas Aquinas, in favor of the condemned precepts of the so-called "New Theology," the subject of an article, The Memories of a Destructive Mind: Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger's Milestones
, on a Society of Saint Pius X website that may well "disappear"--along with other "damaging" citations that will have to be removed as part of the conciliar process of "purification of memory"--once a formal "regularization" takes place. (See also: Attempting to Coerce Perjury
Ratzinger/Benedict holds to a view of the Doctrine of Justification that, in essence, hinges on the belief that the Fathers of the Council of Trent, who met under the influence and protection of God the Holy Ghost, were wrong (as is explained in Attempting to Coerce Perjury.
Ratzinger/Benedict has called for a "world political authority" that violates the sovereignty of nation-states and is based in a concept of universal "brotherhood" and a "respect" for all religions that is nothing other than Judeo-Masonic-Communistic. (See Give Me Two Bayers, Please

Ratzinger/Benedict has wished a "blessing" on the Marxist-trained, pro-abortion statist named Barack Hussein Obama and on all
Ratzinger/Benedict has permitted the Vatican's semi-official newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano

Ratzinger/Benedict has refused to discipline or even contradict conciliar "Archbishop" Robert Zollitsch, the head of the conciliar "bishops'" conference in the Federal Republic of Germany, after Zollitsch denied, on Holy Saturday, April 11, 2009, of all days, that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ died on the wood of the Holy Cross in atonement for our sins. Here is just a little chart to demonstrate exactly how long that Ratzinger/Benedict has remained silent about the heretical and blasphemous comment:
The total number of days between Saturday, April 11th, 2009 and Friday, April 9, 2010 is 363 days.
This is equal to exactly 11 months and 29 days.
The total time span from 2009-04-11 to 04-09-2010 is 8,712 hours.
This is equivalent to 522,720 minutes.
You can also convert 223 days to
31,363,200 seconds (This is a long time, my friends, to be silent about this heresy.)
Ratzinger/Benedict has repeatedly spoken in pantheistic terms about evolutionism and the ideology of environmentalism (Listen to the Voice of God
Ratzinger/Benedict has repeatedly spoken out against the death penalty in full contradiction of the consistent teaching of the Catholic Church in her explication of the binding precepts of the Divine Positive Law and the Natural Law.
Ratzinger/Benedict has defamed the memory of the English Martyrs by permitting "conservative" Anglicans to seek entry into his own false church by retaining "traditions" that arose in a rejection and corruption of Catholic Faith and Worship (see Defaming The English Martyrs
Still Defaming The English Martyrs
- Ratzinger/Benedict treats the leaders of false religions as valid "ministers" of God and accords them full public honors as he praised the nonexistent ability of their false beliefs to "contribute" to the building of a "better world."
Ratzinger/Benedict approved the "beatification" of Father Antonio Rosmini, forty of whose propositions were condemned personally by Pope Leo XIII before the then "Cardinal" Ratzinger" reversed those condemnations in 2001, to give credence to his own New Theology that was condemned by Pope Pius XII in Humani Generis
, August 12, 1950. (See Beatifying Their Own
Ratzinger/Benedict XVI personally endorsed the blasphemous The Nativity Story

Obviously, this list could go on and on. No "conservative" conciliar "bishop" has complained about any of this. They have silent, if not openly supportive of their "pope."They have given their full support to the "magisterium" of the conciliar "popes" who have given such tremendous offense to the honor and glory and majesty of the Most Blessed Trinity and have misled so many of the souls for whom Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ shed every single drop of His Most Precious Blood on the wood of the Holy Cross. For Ratzinger/Benedict to be correct, of course, the Third Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, God the Holy Ghost, would have had to "hide" the "knowledge" that is possible to understand Catholic teaching in different ways at different times in the manner described throughout the false "pontiff's" priestly life, including during his notorious
Christmas address to the members of the conciliar curia on December 22, 2005. Preposterous. Blaspehmous.
Thus it is, my good and very few readers, that news of the newly appointed coadjutor "archbishop" to replace Roger "Cardinal" Mahony as the conciliar "archbishop" of Los Angeles, California, when the latter turns seventy-five years of age on February 27, 2011, Jose Horacio Gomez, represents simply another case of putting lipstick on the conciliar pig. "Archbishop" Gomez, who was born on the Feast of Saint Stephen the Protomartyr in that grand year of 1951, is the currently reigning conciliar "archbishop" of San Antonio, Texas. He has been a member of Opus Dei (see
Not The Work of God) and is thus absolutely committed to putting a "conservative" gloss on the conciliar revolution. Just as Napoleon Bonaparte was completely committed to the institutionalization of the demonic naturalistic ideals of the French Revolution and its "rights of man," so are conservative conciliar revolutionaries completely committed to the full implementation of the conciliar agenda, different with ultra-progressive revolutionaries such as Roger Mahony only on the margins and not at all on the substance of conciliarism's defections from the Catholic Faith.
Here is a "sneak preview" of what one can expect from "Archbishop" Gomez's reign as the conciliar "archbishop" of Los Angeles, California, by the time he is scheduled to retire on December 26, 2026, presuming that God has not intervened by then to put an end to the conciliar madness once and for all:
The annual hootenanny of known as the Los Angeles Religious Education Conference, which is held in the City of Anaheim in the Diocese of Orange, California, will continue, although the conference will take a more "conservative" tone as the years progress. Next year's conference will be a "celebration" of Roger "Cardinal" Mahony's quarter-century of malfeasance as the conciliar "archbishop of Los Angeles, California.
The Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo service will continue to offend God every day in every parish in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. Those of us who know that the Novus Ordo service is evil, that is a perversion of the true worship to be given to God, will have to make many acts of reparation for these offenses.
Inter-religious "prayer" services will continue to be offered, thus offending God in the matter of the strict observance of the First and Second Commandments.
Unless there is that direct intervention by God Himself, the year 2017 will be characterized by events throughout the conciliar church, including in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles under the "conservative" Jose Horacio [and by then] "Cardinal" Gomez, who might stand a chance to be the first American conciliar "pope" once he is elevated to the conciliar college of cardinals, in honor of the quincentenary of Martin Luther's posting his ninety-five theses on the door of Castle Church in Wittenberg, Germany, on October 31, 1517.
"Archbishop" Gomez will issue statements now and again in support of "religious liberty" and "separation of Church and State," although, unlike Mahony, a friend of every pro-abortion politician, Catholic and non-Catholic alike, in California, will be not so subtly supportive of "pro-life" naturalists of the "right" in matters of electoral politics.
The nefarious activities of Catholic Charities in support of the flood of illegal immigration that has brought the State of California to its financial knees will continue unabated.
"Archbishop" Gomez will put a halt over the course of time to the promotion of the lavender agenda in his archdiocese, something that will anger the "gay" community and and will put a stop over the course of time to the appearance of dissident speakers and programs in the archdiocese, thus encouraging "conservatives," who will be tactfully silent when "Archbishop" Gomez engages in inter-religious dialogue and serves as an advocate for those who have entered the country in open and flagrant violation of just immigration laws.
- Explicit classroom instruction in matters pertaining to the Sixth and Ninth Commandments will continue unabated.
In other words, it will be conciliar business as usual in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles with a gloss of conservative "lipstick" to hide the fact that a grotesque "Trojan Pig," if you will, contains within itself one proposition after another that has been condemned by the authority of the Catholic Church.
We fight for the Catholic Faith in Its entirety without any taint of corruption by or compromise with conciliarism. The Faith of our Fathers teaches us that the Catholic Church cannot give us defective liturgies that are offensive to God and that her true pontiffs cannot give us error on matters of Faith and morals. It is this Faith, the true Faith, that has been maintained in the Catholic catacombs by true bishops and true priests who have made no concessions to conciliarism or to the nonexistent "legitimacy" of its false shepherds This teaching has been presented in very clear terms:
CANON VII.--If any one saith, that the ceremonies, vestments, and outward signs, which the Catholic Church makes use of in the celebration of masses, are incentives to impiety, rather than offices of piety; let him be anathema. (Session Twenty-Two, Chapter IX, Canon VII, Council of Trent, September 17, 1562, CT022.)
Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ did not became Incarnate in Our Lady's Virginal and Immaculate Womb by the power of God the Holy Ghost so that we could live our Catholic lives in the midst of obfuscation and uncertainty about what is authentically Catholic and what is not. The Catholic Faith is meant to be clear and easy for the mind to grasp as we give the assent of the mind and the will to all that she teaches as her Divine Bridegroom, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, has revealed them, Who canst neither deceive nor be deceived.
Pope Pius XI made this point abundantly clear in Mortalium Animos, January 6, 1928:
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.
Can it get any clearer? There is never any need to "reconcile" the Faith and Worship of the Catholic Church with the false beliefs and blasphemous liturgical rites of the counterfeit church of conciliarism. No amount of lipstick on the conciliar pig can hide fact of the sacrileges and blasphemies and apostasies and errors that have offended God and hurt souls so much in the past forty to fifty years. A "conservative" Catholic wants to maintain conciliarism and to "reconcile" it to the Catholic Faith much as possible, not reject it entirely in favor of the unalloyed Catholic Faith that makes no concession to error whatsoever.
We pray to Our Lady during this Easter Octave, confident that the Triumph of her Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart will vanquish the foes of the Faith in the world and in the counterfeit church of conciliarism once and for all. Every Rosary we pray, offered to the Most Holy Trinity through that same Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, will plant a few seeds for this triumph, especially as we spend time in prayer before her Divine Son's Real Presence in the Most Blessed Sacrament.
What are we waiting for?
Immaculate Heart of Mary, triumph soon.
Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!
Saint Joseph, Patron of Departing Souls, pray for us.
Saints Peter and Paul, pray for us.
Saint John the Baptist, pray for us.
