Recognize and Capitulate
Thomas A. Droleskey
Much has happened in the past few days while we have been on the road escaping the harsh winter conditions of southwestern Ohio that took quite a toll on our motor home. Some of the events have been so fast-breaking in nature that it is probably a good thing not to have been able to follow them as they were occurring as a commentary written at one moment might have been obsolete a few moments later.
What I want to do in this commentary is supplement the commentary that I provided in
Those Who Deny The Holocaust, attempting to keep the focus of those who read this site on the truth that many great crimes against men have taken place in Modernity because crimes against God are committed on a regular basis under cover of the civil law.
Crimes Against God Are More Evil Than Crimes Against Men
As noted in
Those Who Deny The Holocaust, we must keep in mind the simple fact that the denial of the Incarnation of the Second Person of the Most Blessed Trinity as Man in Our Lady's Virginal and Immaculate Womb by the power of the Third Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, God the Holy Ghost, is what links the false religion of Talmudic Judaism to the ethos of Freemasonry. Both reject belief in the Incarnation as a necessity for there to be order within the souls of men and thus within the nations in which they live. To deny the Incarnation leads, obviously, to a denial of the Holocaust, that is, of the Redemptive Act offered by Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to His Co-Equal and Co-Eternal Father in Spirit and in Truth on the wood of the Holy Cross in atonement for our sins.
It is the denial of the Incarnation, Nativity, Hidden Years, Public Ministry, Passion, Death and Resurrection of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ that leads men to seethe with anger and hatred against those they hold responsible, whether rightly or not, for problems in their own lives or in the larger sociopolitical life of their nations. The failure to see the image of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ in every person makes it easier for fallen men to seek to eradicate those they have grown to hate or resent or for whom they harbor some seemingly "unforgivable" grudge. Indeed, admitting a few exceptions here and there, fallen men must descend into levels of self-indulgence, barbarism and violent rage when they do not have belief in, access to and cooperation with the Sanctifying Graces won them by the shedding of every single drop of the Most Precious Blood of the God-Man on the wood of the Holy Cross and that flow into their hearts and souls through the loving hands of Our Lady, she who is the Mediatrix of All Graces.
As Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ entrusted the mission of teaching and sanctifying the peoples of the world exclusively to the Catholic Church that He founded upon the Rock of Peter, the Pope, we are not to look to the "teachings" of false religions (including, but not limited to, Judaism, Mohammedanism, Protestantism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, etc.) or of naturalistic philosophies and ideologies to guide us in our daily lives. We have been created by God to know, to live, and to serve Him as He has revealed Himself to us through His Catholic Church so that we can scale, in cooperation with Sanctifying and Actual Graces, the heights of sanctity in our own daily lives and thus be ready at all times for the moment of our Particular Judgments and thus to enjoy our Last End, the beholding of the glories of the Beatific Vision of God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Ghost for all eternity in Heaven. Catholicism alone is the one and only foundation of personal and social order.
Catholicism is not an absolute guarantor of personal and social order. Our human nature is wounded by the vestigial after-effects of Original Sin and by our own Actual Sins, which is why we must be serious about recovering by penance what we have lost by sin. It is possible for a believing Catholic to struggle with one or more serious sins throughout his life. It is possible for injustices to be committed in a confessionally Catholic nation. These important admissions have been noted, it is nevertheless true that men must be lost absent the true Faith, which is the necessary precondition for personal and social order. The truth Faith is necessary for each man on the face of this earth in order to see in all men the image of the Divine Redeemer and of treating all men as he would treat Him, Who died for us on the wood of the Holy Cross so that we would have life forever in Heaven.
As Pope Pius XI noted in Ubi Arcano Dei Consilio, December 22, 1922, and in Quas Primas, December 11, 1925:
When, therefore, governments and nations follow in all their activities, whether they be national or international, the dictates of conscience grounded in the teachings, precepts, and example of Jesus Christ, and which are binding on each and every individual, then only can we have faith in one another's word and trust in the peaceful solution of the difficulties and controversies which may grow out of differences in point of view or from clash of interests. An attempt in this direction has already and is now being made; its results, however, are almost negligible and, especially so, as far as they can be said to affect those major questions which divide seriously and serve to arouse nations one against the other. No merely human institution of today can be as successful in devising a set of international laws which will be in harmony with world conditions as the Middle Ages were in the possession of that true League of Nations, Christianity. It cannot be denied that in the Middle Ages this law was often violated; still it always existed as an ideal, according to which one might judge the acts of nations, and a beacon light calling those who had lost their way back to the safe road.
There exists an institution able to safeguard the sanctity of the law of nations. This institution is a part of every nation; at the same time it is above all nations. She enjoys, too, the highest authority, the fullness of the teaching power of the Apostles. Such an institution is the Church of Christ. She alone is adapted to do this great work, for she is not only divinely commissioned to lead mankind, but moreover, because of her very make-up and the constitution which she possesses, by reason of her age-old traditions and her great prestige, which has not been lessened but has been greatly increased since the close of the War, cannot but succeed in such a venture where others assuredly will fail. (Pope Pius XI, Ubi Arcano Dei Consilio, December 23, 1922)
Thus the empire of our Redeemer embraces all men. To use the words of Our immortal predecessor, Pope Leo XIII: "His empire includes not only Catholic nations, not only baptized persons who, though of right belonging to the Church, have been led astray by error, or have been cut off from her by schism, but also all those who are outside the Christian faith; so that truly the whole of mankind is subject to the power of Jesus Christ." Nor is there any difference in this matter between the individual and the family or the State; for all men, whether collectively or individually, are under the dominion of Christ. In him is the salvation of the individual, in him is the salvation of society. "Neither is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under heaven given to men whereby we must be saved." He is the author of happiness and true prosperity for every man and for every nation. "For a nation is happy when its citizens are happy. What else is a nation but a number of men living in concord?" If, therefore, the rulers of nations wish to preserve their authority, to promote and increase the prosperity of their countries, they will not neglect the public duty of reverence and obedience to the rule of Christ. What We said at the beginning of Our Pontificate concerning the decline of public authority, and the lack of respect for the same, is equally true at the present day. "With God and Jesus Christ," we said, "excluded from political life, with authority derived not from God but from man, the very basis of that authority has been taken away, because the chief reason of the distinction between ruler and subject has been eliminated. The result is that human society is tottering to its fall, because it has no longer a secure and solid foundation." (Pope Pius XI, Quas Primas, December 11, 1925.)
Without seeking to minimize crimes committed against men, we must also recognize that there is a hierarchy of evils. Crimes against God and His Revelation and His greater honor and glory and majesty are greater evils than those committed against men and property. We must defend the honor and majesty and glory of God with all of the strength that He can give us through Our Lady's hands, never fearing the "reaction" of those who hate Him and His true Church, those who deny His Incarnation and thus deny His Sacred Divinity, those who appropriate the term Holocaust to apply it to a misrepresentation of historical events, those who seek to persecute and calumniate with the false, emotionally-laden charge of "anti-Semitism" those of us who dare to identify them as promoters of pornography and contraception and abortion and perversion and usury and all manner of other evils in the world. As I noted three days ago in
Those Who Deny The Holocaust, it is not "anti-Semitic" to oppose those who hate Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and who seek to promote the very thing, sin, that caused Him to suffer in His Sacred Humanity during His Passion and Death and cause His Most Blessed Mother's Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart to be pierced through and through with Seven Swords of Sorrow.
Americanism and Judeo-Masonry's Attacks on the Social Reign of Christ the King
Adherents of Talmudic Judaism do not realize that the crimes associated with the Third Reich ware made possible by the overthrow of the Social Reign of Christ the King wrought by the Protestant Revolt, an overthrow that their ancestors in this false religion took full advantage of as the lodges of Freemasonry, also hostile to the necessity of belief in and submission to the Deposit of Faith that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ has entrusted solely to the Catholic Church for Its eternal safekeeping and infallible explication, sought to create the religiously indifferentist civil state that has given them, adherents of Talmudic Judaism, complete freedom to propagate their blasphemous falsehoods and to attack the true Faith under cover of the civil law in the name of "civil" and "religious" liberty. The Constitution of the United States of America, so admired by Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, created the prototype of this "free" nation that has been used by the Holocaust deniers for their own nefarious purposes.
Monsignor Henri Delassus explained the admiration for the American founding that was held by the Universal Israelite Alliance, seeing in it the means to convince Catholics that their first attachments must be to "democracy" and to the Judeo-Masonic concepts of "universal brotherhood" and religious indifferentism (in the name of pluralism's "toleration" of "divergent beliefs"). Indeed, as Monsignor Delassus pointed out, the father of the insidious Americanist heresy, which is one of the cornerstones of conciliarism itself, Father Isaac Thomas Hecker, believed in these very false concepts, making him a prophetic precursor of Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI in serving the interests of those who deny the one and only Holocaust:
How so? Fr. Hecker tells us: "A call is made to men who possess this new synthesis of truth who are able to solve the problems of eliminating antagonisms, of being reconciled with the need of our era; of men who will take hold of all the aspirations of modern genius effected by science, of social activity, of politics, of spirituality (accordingly, spirituality itself would be called upon to defend the Church and to procure her universal triumph), of religion, and of the transformation of everything by means of the defense and universal triumph for the Church" (The Life of Fr. Hecker.)
Those who are not made aware of the world's current direction by the information that they derive from the newspaper--and this is the vast majority--will undoubtedly be surprised, in speaking to them of "Americanism" and of an "American Catholicism," we begin by calling their attention to the "Universal Israelite Alliance," entering through there upon a question, the Jewish Question, that presently fascinates the world and that is studied under every point of view, but which does not take into account, appears to be removed from, American Catholicism. This is nevertheless not imaginary on our part. The Universal Israelite Alliance is the center, the home, the bond of the antichristian conspiracy, by which Americanism seems to us to provide a support that it is not aware of which would not be given if it were understood and upon which this book is determined to direct its attention ...
One of the most malicious men of this [19th] century, the Jew [Jules Isaac] Cremieux, who was made grand Master of the French Grand Orient, who profited by the Revolution of 1848 [in France] by being raised to the Ministry of Justice, and by the disasters of 1870 which gave French citizenship to all the Jews of Algeria, founded in 1860 a cosmopolitan society which he endowed with the name of Universal Israelite Alliance. This association is not, as its name would have one believe, one of international Jewry, a bond to better facilitate links between Jews scattered around the surface of the globe; its aims bear upon something much more higher. It is an association open to all men without distinction of nationality nor of religion, under the high direction of Israel.
In order to be convinced of this, it is sufficient to open the publication that represents it, The Israelite Archives. "The Universal Israelite Alliance," it says there (xxx, pp. 514-515, for the year 1861), "must enter into all religions as it has penetrated all countries. I call to our association the brothers of every religion, that they would come to us! ... That enlightened men of all cults will unite themselves with this Universal Israelite Alliance" (ibid.) And why? "To break down the barriers which separate that which ONE DAY MUST BE UNITED. See there, Messieurs, the beauty, the great mission of Our Universal Israelite Alliance" (ibid.)
Profiting from their dispersion over every point of the globe, the Jews wish to be in humanity as a sort of leaven, in order to make of human society, presently divided into nations and various religions, "one sole and solid fraternity,"--the Israelite Archives say it less hypocritically: "A Jerusalem of new order, a holy extension from the East to the West, that must EXIT IN ITSELF in the double city of the Caesars and the Popes" (XXV, PP. 600-651, 1861) ...
The Jewish race "Jerusalem" intends to establish its reign over the entire world. "East and West," by establishing its authority upon the ruins of all existing powers. "Caesars and Popes." All authority must disappear in order to make way for the domination of Juda, which "will take the place" of all the existing powers in the spiritual order as well as in the temporal order ...
... We see here that other idea advanced, the idea of the United States of Europe, parallel to the United States of America ...
Here again, one could compare a strange accord between the ideas of the Americanists and the tendencies of those who obey the promptings given by the Universal Israelite Alliance. A most ardent promoter of Americanism, in a discourse given in 1894 to the International Scientific Congress of Catholics at Brussels, had this to say:
"We have thought that the opportunity has been provided us of giving to the ENTIRE WORLD a great lesson. When we study the map of Europe, we see there, marks of small divisions. Lines traversing these maps in every sense. They do not indicate only territorial divisions, they signify also: jealousy, hatred, hostility, divisions of hearts, that commits God knows how many millions of armed men for the destruction of the world. Thus, from all these nations, Providence has allowed immigration among us. All nations find themselves at home here [in the USA]; they have been living among themselves, fraternally, without any hostility. This is the privilege that God has granted to America, that of destroying the traditions of national jealousies that of that you have perpetuated in Europe, by melting them down in America unity."
Read on: "Americanism" [this pompous Americanist continues] "has received from God the mission of giving to the entire world this lesson: the time has come to put an end to the past: abolish frontiers, place all the people in the melting pot of the rights of man by the molding of united humanity, as we [in America] have been founded, we emigrants from all countries, in American unity. And peace shall reign in the world."
Yes, the peace of the slave under the tyranny of one man or of one race.
As of all the other ideas of the Americanists, that of he abolition of frontiers seems to appeal to our Christian democrats. . . .
So then, if the Talmudists [Orthodox Jews] differ from the liberals [Reform Jews], it is only upon knowing which is the better means to employ in order to accomplish the mission that Israel claims to have received ... The Talmudists continue to await a messiah of flesh and bone, who will make them masters of the universe; the liberals say that they do not have any other messiah to expect than the Revolution, "the principles" of which are dissolving of all society and preparing it for their rule. In order to spread these modern "principles," in order to have them bring about the fruits that they are awaiting, they deem it necessary to separate themselves from those observances to which their fathers had been attached, when they believed that their fidelity would hasten the coming of the personal messiah. This is a cumbersome burden, and what's more the Jew of this old way could not "make himself acceptable." He would nevertheless make himself acceptable in the eyes of the people among whom he wished to exercise a "proselytization."
And in what does this conversion consist? Is it to encourage the faithful of various religions to enter into Judaism? The Jews have never had the thought of making a conversion of this sort; they are a people a race apart, "the premier aristocracy of the world," the only ones who are truly men; they would never hear of elevating beings such as those who are human only in appearance ...
In the first place [The Universal Israelite Alliance] acts upon kings and parliaments in order to apply pressure on them, "this singular, indefatigable influence" that [Gourgenot] des Mousseaux already noted in 1869 [see, The Jew, Judaism and The Judaization of the Christian People, by Mousseaux].
What over and above does it demand? LAICIZATION.
There is no person, who is not blind, who cannot fail to see the prodigious efforts that are being made over the last century towards secularization, that is to say, efforts to remove all religious character from everywhere and everyone. Already, on the very origin of the Revolution, [Count Joseph] de Maistre, had remarked that his had been its essential character. "Examine," he said, "all the enterprises of this century, you have to see (these men of the Revolution) constantly occupied in the separation from divinity." It would take too long to show here the many aspects under which the question of laicization or secularization is presented: it spreads itself among all, and in every governmental organ, accordingly, all the forces of society are employed in the success of this work ...
Could Americanism, itself also, have come to lend itself to this work that is certainly not intentional? This is what we have already said is to be feared. It is well to examine this thing more closely.
What is certain, what is incontestable, is that between the Jewish spirit and the Americanist spirit there is a point of contact with the principles of '89 [i.e., the principles of the French Revolution].
We have heard the Jews proclaim and declare the course they are drawing. For the Americans their social and even religious state rests entirely upon these principles; they highly praise them, and the Americanists themselves would have us that "American ideas are those in which GOD wants all the civilized people of our time to be at home." So they conscientiously make of themselves evangelists." ( Monsignor Henri Delassus, Americanism and the Anti-Christian Conspiracy, translated by Mr. Daniel Leonardi and published by Mr. Hugh Akins of
Catholic Action Resource Center, Orlando, Florida, October, 2007--first printing in France, 1899, pp. 2-8.)
The Social Reign of Christ the King, overthrown by the Protestant Revolt and held in contempt by the scions of Judeo-Masonry and the Catholic-hating founders of the United States of America (see
A Founding Hatred for Christ the King), is the only true and effective safeguard against the misuse of civil rule by kings or presidents or emperors or ideological zealots. It is precisely the overthrow of the Social Reign of Christ the King that made possible the rise of absolute monarchs who abused their power, knowing that there the Successor of Saint Peter was "powerless" to discipline them, and made possible the rise of the tyranny of the mob that goes by the name of republicanism (representative government). Fallen men become their own "popes," their own ultimate "arbiters" over right and wrong if they do not recognize and submit to the authority of the Catholic Church in all that pertains to the good of their own souls, upon which depends the good of all social order.
Innocent Blood Must Flow When Christ Is Not King of Men and their Nations
Nations that lack a due submission to the Catholic Church in all that pertains to the good of souls must degenerate into agents of the shedding the blood of innocent human beings under cover of law. This is what happened immediately in England under King Henry VIII when he had himself declared "Supreme Head of the Church in England" by Parliament in 1534 as over 72,000 Catholics who remained faithful to the true Church were put to death between that time and 1547, the time of his, Henry Tudor's, Particular Judgment. The French Revolutionaries killed between 150,000 to 200,000 people. Nearly 100 million people were killed by the various Communist revolutionaries (Soviet, Chinese, Vietnamese, Cuban, Spanish, Korean, Cambodian). And, yes, significant numbers of innocent human beings were put to death by the Third Reich of Adolf Hitler, starting with the German generals in 1934 who refused to join the National Socialist Party and continuing with the extermination of the elderly and the infirmed and the eugenically "deformed" under its "eugenics laws" prior to the killing of those who were rounded up, tattooed like cattle and placed in concentration camps. A Catholic bishop, Clemens von Galens of Munster, Germany, denounced the eugenics laws from his pulpit with great courage and apostolic zeal.
The crimes of Nazi Germany against innocent human beings are real crimes, committed at the hands of men who had a contempt for Christ the King and His true Church. These crimes happened. Let true historians--and there are some--who are not tinged with discredited naturalist ideologies of "racial purity" or "racial superiority" continue to put forth the very sound evidence that was cited by Bishop Richard Williamson in the television interview he gave on November 2, 2008, that aired on January 21, 2009. Let those who are open to learn the truth of the nature and the extent of the Nazi crimes consider these facts and reject the claims of those who have used hyperbole about them to attempt to promote a Christophobic agenda in popular culture in Western nations. The truth will win out over time. It will be revealed most certainly for all to see, whether they like it or not, at the General Judgment of the Living and the Dead on the Last day. It is not to be an "anti-Semite" to examine with dispassion the fruits of true historical research.
The fact remains, however, that Dachau existed. Buchenwald existed. Auschwitz existed. Trblinka existed. Human beings were stripped of their property. They were forced into slave labor. Many of them were tortured. And even if the number of Jews who were killed in these camps is in the range cited by Bishop Williamson, that between 200,000 to 300,000, that is indeed a genocide imposed upon innocent human beings by the authority of a godless civil state headed by men who believed in a diabolical ideology that saw itself as the means of secular salvation. And we must remember as well that Catholics were rounded up, tattooed, forced into slave labor, tortured and killed. One of those who was rounded up and sent to Auschwitz was the foe of all forms of naturalism, Father Maximilian Kolbe, who was devoted to building the City of Mary Immaculate, an enterprise the the devil, so close to the black hearts of the Nazis, hates with a passion.
Alas, the crimes committed by the doctors and judges and military officers of the Third Reich were made possible because of the fact that those whose lives they deemed to be "racially impure" or otherwise expendable because of physical or mental "deformity" or for being a critic of their Third Reich, which was to rule over the world for a thousand years, were viewed in merely naturalistic terms and not through the eyes of the true Faith as creatures of the true God Who had made them to be His own for all eternity. As the Third Reich, like all other modern civil states, rejected the right of the Catholic Church as having ordained by God Himself to be the ultimate authority on all that pertains to the good of souls, those who wielded power in that regime enacted "racial purity" and "eugenics" laws with complete legal impunity. Who could stop them? They had the legal "authority" under the Constitution of the Weimar Republic to enact "emergency laws." Constitutions that admit of no higher authority than the words of their own text are like silly putty in the hands of a child: instruments that can be manipulated for whatever ends those who hold the reins of power desire. Nations that reject the Social Reign of Christ the King are governed according to the dictates of those who exercise civil power, men who care not for His Sacred Rights or who fear not the moment of their own Particular Judgments.
As Bishop Clemens von Galens noted in one of his sermons against the Nazi eugenics laws on Sunday, August 3, 1941:
“For some months we have been heating reports that inmates of establishments for the care of the mentally ill who have been ill for a long period and perhaps appear incurable have been forcibly removed from these establishments on orders from Berlin. Regularly the relatives receive soon afterwards an intimation that the patient is dead, that the patient's body has been cremated and that they can collect the ashes. There is a general suspicion, verging on certainty. that these numerous unexpected deaths of the mentally ill do not occur naturally but are intentionally brought about in accordance with the doctrine that it is legitimate to destroy a so-called “worthless life”” in other words to kill innocent men and women, if it is thought that their lives are of no further value to the people and the state. A terrible doctrine which seeks to justify the murder of innocent people, which legitimises the violent killing of disabled persons who are no longer capable of work, of cripples, the incurably ill and the aged and infirm!”
I am reliably informed that in hospitals and homes in the province of Westphalia lists are being prepared of inmates who are classified as “unproductive members of the national community” and are to be removed from these establishments and shortly thereafter killed. The first party of patients left the mental hospital at Marienthal, near Munster, in the course of this week.
German men and women! Article 211 of the German Penal Code is still in force, in these terms: “Whoever kills a man of deliberate intent is guilty of murder and punishable with death”. No doubt in order to protect those who kill with intent these poor men and women, members of our families, from this punishment laid down by law, the patients who have been selected for killing are removed from their home area to some distant place. Some illness or other is then given as the cause of death. Since the body is immediately cremated, the relatives and the criminal police are unable to establish whether the patient had in fact been ill or what the cause of death actually was. I have been assured, however, that in the Ministry of the Interior and the office of the Chief Medical Officer, Dr Conti, no secret is made of the fact that indeed a large number of mentally ill persons in Germany have already been killed with intent and that this will continue.
Article 139 of the Penal Code provides that “anyone who has knowledge of an intention to commit a crime against the life of any person . . . and fails to inform the authorities or the person whose life is threatened in due time . . . commits a punishable offence”. When I learned of the intention to remove patients from Marienthal I reported the matter on 28th July to the State Prosecutor of Munster Provincial Court and to the Munster chief of police by registered letter, in the following terms:
“According to information I have received it is planned in the course of this week (the date has been mentioned as 31st July) to move a large number of inmates of the provincial hospital at Marienthal, classified as ‘unproductive members of the national community’, to the mental hospital at Eichberg, where, as is generally believed to have happened in the case of patients removed from other establishments, they are to be killed with intent. Since such action is not only contrary to the divine and the natural moral law but under article 211 of the German Penal Code ranks as murder and attracts the death penalty, I hereby report the matter in accordance with my obligation under article 139 of the Penal Code and request that steps should at once be taken to protect the patients concerned by proceedings against the authorities planning their removal and murder, and that I may be informed of the action taken".
I have received no information of any action by the State Prosecutor or the police.
I had already written on 26th July to the Westphalian provincial authorities, who are responsible for the running of the mental hospital and for the patients entrusted to them for care and for cure, protesting in the strongest terms. It had no effect. The first transport of the innocent victims under sentence of death has left Marienthal. And I am now told that 800 patients have already been removed from the hospital at Warstein.
We must expect, therefore, that the poor defenceless patients are, sooner or later, going to be killed. Why? Not because they have committed any offence justifying their death, not because, for example, they have attacked a nurse or attendant, who would be entitled in legitimate selfdefence to meet violence with violence. In such a case the use of violence leading to death is permitted and may be called for, as it is in the case of killing an armed enemy.
No: these unfortunate patients are to die, not for some such reason as this but because in the judgment of some official body, on the decision of some committee, they have become “unworthy to live,” because they are classed as “unproductive members of the national community”.
The judgment is that they can no longer produce any goods: they are like an old piece of machinery which no longer works, like an old horse which has become incurably lame, like a cow which no longer gives any milk. What happens to an old piece of machinery? It is thrown on the scrap heap. What happens to a lame horse, an unproductive cow?
I will not pursue the comparison to the end so fearful is its appropriateness and its illuminating power.
But we are not here concerned with pieces of machinery; we are not dealing with horses and cows, whose sole function is to serve mankind, to produce goods for mankind. They may be broken up; they may be slaughtered when they no longer perform this function.
No: We are concerned with men and women, our fellow creatures, our brothers and sisters! Poor human beings, ill human beings, they are unproductive, if you will. But does that mean that they have lost the right to live? Have you, have I, the right to live only so long as we are productive, so long as we are recognised by others as productive?
If the principle that men is entitled to kill his unproductive fellow-man is established and applied, then woe betide all of us when we become aged and infirm! If it is legitimate to kill unproductive members of the community, woe betide the disabled who have sacrificed their health or their limbs in the productive process! If unproductive men and women can be disposed of by violent means, woe betide our brave soldiers who return home with major disabilities as cripples, as invalids! If it is once admitted that men have the right to kill “unproductive” fellow-men even though it is at present applied only to poor and defenceless mentally ill patients” then the way is open for the murder of all unproductive men and women: the incurably ill, the handicapped who are unable to work, those disabled in industry or war. The way is open, indeed, for the murder of all of us when we become old and infirm and therefore unproductive. Then it will require only a secret order to be issued that the procedure which has been tried and tested with the mentally ill should be extended to other “unproductive” persons, that it should also be applied to those suffering from incurable tuberculosis, the aged and infirm, persons disabled in industry, soldiers with disabling injuries!
Then no man will be safe: some committee or other will be able to put him on the list of “unproductive” persons, who in their judgment have become “unworthy to live”. And there will be no police to protect him, no court to avenge his murder and bring his murderers to justice.
Who could then have any confidence in a doctor? He might report a patient as unproductive and then be given instructions to kill him! It does not bear thinking of, the moral depravity, the universal mistrust which will spread even in the bosom of the family, if this terrible doctrine is tolerated, accepted and put into practice. Woe betide mankind, woe betide our German people, if the divine commandment, “Thou shalt not kill”, which the Lord proclaimed on Sinai amid thunder and lightning, which God our Creator wrote into man's conscience from the beginning, if this commandment is not merely violated but the violation is tolerated and remains unpunished!
Sort of sounds like the United States of America today, does it not? And that is precisely the point, my friends. Nations that reject the Social Reign of Christ the King are sometimes formed by the shedding of innocent blood. As all nations that reject the Social Reign of Christ the King are founded on false, naturalistic principles, however, each will wind up shedding innocent blood, sooner or later, as there is no external constraint upon those who exercise power as existed during the era of Christendom in the Catholic Middle Ages. Nearly fifty million babies have been butchered in the United States of America under cover of law by surgical abortion alone, countless millions more as a result of abortifacient contraceptives. "Civil liberty" absent a due subordination of men and their nations to the Social Reign of Christ the King must result in an abyss of lawless and corruption, as Pope Gregory XVI noted in Mirari Vos, August 15, 1832:
This shameful font of indifferentism gives rise to that absurd and erroneous proposition which claims that liberty of conscience must be maintained for everyone. It spreads ruin in sacred and civil affairs, though some repeat over and over again with the greatest impudence that some advantage accrues to religion from it. "But the death of the soul is worse than freedom of error," as Augustine was wont to say. When all restraints are removed by which men are kept on the narrow path of truth, their nature, which is already inclined to evil, propels them to ruin. Then truly "the bottomless pit" is open from which John saw smoke ascending which obscured the sun, and out of which locusts flew forth to devastate the earth. Thence comes transformation of minds, corruption of youths, contempt of sacred things and holy laws -- in other words, a pestilence more deadly to the state than any other. Experience shows, even from earliest times, that cities renowned for wealth, dominion, and glory perished as a result of this single evil, namely immoderate freedom of opinion, license of free speech, and desire for novelty.
Here We must include that harmful and never sufficiently denounced freedom to publish any writings whatever and disseminate them to the people, which some dare to demand and promote with so great a clamor. We are horrified to see what monstrous doctrines and prodigious errors are disseminated far and wide in countless books, pamphlets, and other writings which, though small in weight, are very great in malice. We are in tears at the abuse which proceeds from them over the face of the earth. Some are so carried away that they contentiously assert that the flock of errors arising from them is sufficiently compensated by the publication of some book which defends religion and truth. Every law condemns deliberately doing evil simply because there is some hope that good may result. Is there any sane man who would say poison ought to be distributed, sold publicly, stored, and even drunk because some antidote is available and those who use it may be snatched from death again and again?
It is no wonder that the methods of the lawless, godless country where the first concentration camps were started in 1918, Russia under Leninist rule, were adopted by the National Socialists of the Third Reich for their own purposes despite the ideological differences between their brand of socialism and the Bolshevism of Vladimir I. Lenin. Men who reject Christ the King will wind up turning into monsters of one degree or another despite the "nuances" of their naturalistic ideas. Hitlerism was made possible by attacks on the Social Reign of Christ the King made by the Protestant Revolt and Judeo-Masonry. Bolshevism in Russia was in fact funded by Talmudic agents to introduce godlessness into Russia, whose conversion is so near and dear to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
To bring true historical research to bear on the crimes of the Nazi regime is not justify any of those crimes or give any credibility to a diabolical ideology that is founded on rejection of the true Faith and deification of the mythology of the "superiority" of the "Aryan race." Catholics are committed to truth in the Order of Redemption (Grace) and in the Order of Creation (Nature). To be skeptical of "mainstream" history is a duty in an naturalistic world built on the lies of Protestantism and Judeo-Masonry.
A Common Kinship: Hatred for Creatures Made in the Image and Likeness of God
As noted three days ago in Those Who Deny The Holocaust, the very people who have played the "victim card" ever since the events of World War II were exaggerated to suit their own purposes have viewed those they deem as sub-human or "racially impure" or otherwise expendable (the Palestinians, the Lebanese, the Egyptians, the Jordanians, the Americans on board the U.S.S. Liberty, etc.) with contempt and scorn, subjecting them to dispossession, imprisonment, torture, execution or bombardment precisely because they, the deniers of the Holocaust, do not see in their victims the image of the Divine Redeemer, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. It is those who deny the Holocaust who have profited from the lies told about the nature and the extent of the crimes committed by the Third Reich as they have attacked the Catholic Faith worldwide and imposed a genocide of their own upon those who happen to get in the way of the interests of international Zionism. Adherents of the Talmud who believe in their "right" to do with non-Jews as they please are thus of one dark mind and one black heart with the Nazis whose crimes they exploit endlessly for their own Christophobic purposes.
Nothing For Which to Apologize
Bishop Richard Williamson has nothing for which to apologize. It is most regrettable that he has chosen to do so. Although not under a strict obligation to answer every question put to him by an interviewer, a Catholic who chooses to answer a question must do so honestly, whether he is speaking on matters that pertain to the Faith or matters that pertain to the secular sciences. That Bishop Williamson issued an apology to the conciliar Vatican speaks volumes about the extent to which various Talmudic rabbis influence the conciliar agenda and are dictating, at least in part, the terms of what could be the impending "full admission" of the Society of Saint Pius to membership in the One World Church of the counterfeit church of conciliarism, which is being built "brick by brick," to borrow a phrase, as various disparate elements, including it appears, members of the "Traditional Anglican Communion," are brought together despite possessing differences on matters of doctrine that have been defined solemnly by the authority of the Catholic Church.
The March to Oblivion Continues
Everything happens within the Providence of God. The details of Bishop Williamson's interview were certainly not known by Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI at the time the document to "lift" the "excommunications" of the four bishops, including Bishop Williamson, who were consecrated by the late Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre in Econe, Switzerland, on June 30, 1988. The firestorm that has resulted since the televising of the interview on January 21, 2009, has served to illustrate to many within the Society of Saint Pius X that the conciliar Vatican is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the One World Church and that the false "pontiff" will stop at nothing to cater to the people who deny the Holocaust, as he did on Wednesday, January 28, 2009, as he, Ratzinger/Benedict, repeated the Talmudic "holohoax" propaganda about the "millions" who died in the concentration camps:
VATICAN CITY, JAN. 28, 2009 (Zenit.org).- Benedict XVI expressed solidarity with Jews and strongly condemned the use of concentration camps during World War II in his response to the uproar caused by lifting the excommunication of a holocaust-denying bishop.
Speaking today after delivering his weekly general audience address, the Pope addressed for the first time a rift that began Saturday when the Vatican lifted the excommunication of Lefebvrite Bishop Richard Williamson.
The bishop had appeared days earlier on Swedish television claiming that historical evidence denies the gassing of Jews in Nazi concentration camps. He also alleged that no more than 300,000 Jews were killed during World War II.
Bishop Williamson was one of four prelates of the Society of St. Pius X who were illicitly ordained to the episcopate by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre in 1988. The excommunication was also lifted for the other three bishops, and was meant to be a step toward healing the division caused by the ordinations some 20 years ago.
Today the Pontiff acknowledged the horror of the Holocaust, and especially the death camps such as Auschwitz, which he said "carried out the brutal massacre of millions of Jews, innocent victims of a blind racial and religious hate."
The Pope expressed his "hope that the memory of the Shoah moves humanity to reflect on the unpredictable power of evil when it conquers the human heart," and that the Holocaust "be for everyone a warning against forgetting, against negating or reductionism, because violence committed against even one human being is violence against all."
"No man is an island," Benedict XVI continued, referring to the English Poet John Donne (1571-1631).
"May the Shoah teach especially, as much the old generations as the new ones, that only the tiring path of listening and dialogue, of love and pardon, leads peoples, cultures and religions of the world to the desired encounter of fraternity and peace in the world," he said. "May violence never again humiliate the dignity of man!"
Jesuit Father Federico Lombardi, director of the Vatican press office, said immediately following the audience that the Pope's statements on the Holocaust "should be more than sufficient to respond to the questions of those who doubt the position of the Pope and the Catholic Church."
Since the weekend, reports had been circulating that the Rabbinate of Israel would indefinitely sever ties with the Vatican, which were established in 2000 when Pope John Paul II visited Israel, and cancel a meeting of the Commission for Religious Relations of the Holy See set for March.
The Vatican and the state of Israel have had their own, separate relationship since establishing diplomatic ties in 1993, and the current situation does not affect state relations.
Father Lombardi said today he hoped that "the difficulties presented by the Rabbinate of Israel can be the object of a subsequent and more profound reflection," and that Vatican-Jewish relations "can go forward fruitfully and serenely."
In an interview that aired today on Italian television, Oded Wiener, the director-general of the Rabbinate of Israel, affirmed the importance of relations with the Vatican: "I think that it is fundamental as much for us as for the Vatican itself."
Regarding Benedict XVI's comments after the general audience, Wiener underlined: "In the first place I believe that the declaration of the Pope this morning have been extremely important, for us and for the entire world. There is no place for people such as Williamson that deny the existence of the Holocaust."
"I think it has been a big step forward," he added.
The Israeli ambassador to the Holy See, Mordechay Lewy, said he was "very happy for a declaration from such a high level by the Holy See that clarifies and helps to overcome these misunderstanding."
"I think that it is erroneous, now, to personalize the question concentrating on a single bishop," he added.
With regard to the intention of Benedict XVI to travel to the Holy Land in May, the Israeli ambassador said "the Pope is welcome in Israel today, as he was welcomed yesterday and the day before."
Apart from his acceptance of the distortion and misrepresentation of historical facts, Ratzinger/Benedict's comments on the "Shoah" are pure naturalism, pure Judeo-Masonry. A "desired encounter of peace and fraternity in the world?" Contrast such Masonic sloganeering with the language of Pope Saint Pius X's Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910:
Alas! yes, the double meaning has been broken: the social action of the Sillon is no longer Catholic. The Sillonist, as such, does not work for a coterie, and “the Church”, he says, “cannot in any sense benefit from the sympathies that his action may stimulate.” A strange situation, indeed! They fear lest the Church should profit for a selfish and interested end by the social action of the Sillon, as if everything that benefited the Church did not benefit the whole human race! A curious reversal of notions! The Church might benefit from social action! As if the greatest economists had not recognized and proved that it is social action alone which, if serious and fruitful, must benefit the Church! 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."
And now, overwhelmed with the deepest sadness, We ask Ourselves, Venerable Brethren, what has become of the Catholicism of the Sillon? Alas! this organization which formerly afforded such promising expectations, this limpid and impetuous stream, has been harnessed in its course by the modern enemies of the Church, and is now no more than a miserable affluent of the great movement of apostasy being organized in every country for the establishment of a One-World Church which shall have neither dogmas, nor hierarchy, neither discipline for the mind, nor curb for the passions, and which, under the pretext of freedom and human dignity, would bring back to the world (if such a Church could overcome) the reign of legalized cunning and force, and the oppression of the weak, and of all those who toil and suffer.
We know only too well the dark workshops in which are elaborated these mischievous doctrines which ought not to seduce clear-thinking minds. The leaders of the Sillon have not been able to guard against these doctrines. The exaltation of their sentiments, the undiscriminating good-will of their hearts, their philosophical mysticism, mixed with a measure of illuminism, have carried them away towards another Gospel which they thought was the true Gospel of Our Savior. To such an extent that they speak of Our Lord Jesus Christ with a familiarity supremely disrespectful, and that - their ideal being akin to that of the Revolution - they fear not to draw between the Gospel and the Revolution blasphemous comparisons for which the excuse cannot be made that they are due to some confused and over-hasty composition.
We wish to draw your attention, Venerable Brethren, to this distortion of the Gospel and to the sacred character of Our Lord Jesus Christ, God and man, prevailing within the Sillon and elsewhere. As soon as the social question is being approached, it is the fashion in some quarters to first put aside the divinity of Jesus Christ, and then to mention only His unlimited clemency, His compassion for all human miseries, and His pressing exhortations to the love of our neighbor and to the brotherhood of men. True, Jesus has loved us with an immense, infinite love, and He came on earth to suffer and die so that, gathered around Him in justice and love, motivated by the same sentiments of mutual charity, all men might live in peace and happiness. But for the realization of this temporal and eternal happiness, He has laid down with supreme authority the condition that we must belong to His Flock, that we must accept His doctrine, that we must practice virtue, and that we must accept the teaching and guidance of Peter and his successors. Further, whilst Jesus was kind to sinners and to those who went astray, He did not respect their false ideas, however sincere they might have appeared. He loved them all, but He instructed them in order to convert them and save them. Whilst He called to Himself in order to comfort them, those who toiled and suffered, it was not to preach to them the jealousy of a chimerical equality. Whilst He lifted up the lowly, it was not to instill in them the sentiment of a dignity independent from, and rebellious against, the duty of obedience. Whilst His heart overflowed with gentleness for the souls of good-will, He could also arm Himself with holy indignation against the profaners of the House of God, against the wretched men who scandalized the little ones, against the authorities who crush the people with the weight of heavy burdens without putting out a hand to lift them. He was as strong as he was gentle. He reproved, threatened, chastised, knowing, and teaching us that fear is the beginning of wisdom, and that it is sometimes proper for a man to cut off an offending limb to save his body. Finally, He did not announce for future society the reign of an ideal happiness from which suffering would be banished; but, by His lessons and by His example, He traced the path of the happiness which is possible on earth and of the perfect happiness in heaven: the royal way of the Cross. These are teachings that it would be wrong to apply only to one's personal life in order to win eternal salvation; these are eminently social teachings, and they show in Our Lord Jesus Christ something quite different from an inconsistent and impotent humanitarianism.
Bishop Bernard Fellay, the Superior-General of the Society of Saint Pius X, has issued several statements denouncing the comments that Bishop Williamson made in his recently televised interview and has silenced the latter from speaking about political and historical matters, thus showing himself to be a very effective agent of the One World Church who has made a conscious decision to cast aside truth in favor an open, formal alliance when men who blaspheme God as they, the conciliar revolutionaries, esteem the symbols of false religions.
Bishop Fellay has made a conscious decision to seek an open, formal alliance with men who deny the nature of dogmatic truth by inventing out of whole cloth fantastic slogans such as "the hermeneutic of continuity and discontinuity," a concept that flies in the face of the dogmatic pronouncements (the Vatican Council, 1870, Pascendi Dominici Gregis, September 8, 1907, The Oath Against Modernism, September 1, 1910) of the Catholic Church and in the face of simple logic and has not a single, solitary shred of Patristic support whatsoever.
Bishop Fellay has made a conscious decision to seek an open, formal alliance with men who reject the "ecumenism of the return" and who embrace the falsehoods of religious liberty and separation of Church and State that were condemned by pope after pope prior to the conciliar revolution that began with the "election" of Angelo Roncalli/John XXIII in 1958. He is leading those who follow him into the same path of oblivion as that which those who broke from the Society of Saint Pius X following the episcopal consecrations of June 30, 1988, to form the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter have charted, a path that leads to silence about offenses committed against the honor and glory and majesty of the Most Blessed Trinity.
Then again, the Society of Saint Pius X has been built on false ecclesiology that has convinced several generations of traditionally-minded Catholics that they can "resist" the decrees of a man they recognize to be the Vicar of Christ on earth. Even in my "conservative" days I was, in effect, influenced by this false ecclesiology by choosing to ignore those conciliar decrees and "papal" statements that I found troubling. I was wrong.
There has never been a period, no less one lasting for forty years, in the history of the Catholic Church when Catholics have had to "sift" papal pronouncements and decrees on a regular basis, no less set up ecclesial structures, including marriage tribunals (!), to parallel those in "full communion" with the "pope" whom they say that they recognize as they disobey him regularly. There has never been a period in the history of the Church where a parallel ecclesial structure, one that has not broken formally with the Holy See (such as the Orthodox), has put into question the validity of a liturgy approved by the Holy See or performed conditional ordinations or confirmations because the rites approved by the Holy See were suspected of being defective. Schisms there have been. The schismatics of the past at least had the honesty to admit that they had broken from some pope. The Society of Saint Pius X has argued that it recognizes men as "popes" but has reserved the "right" to "choose" which of their decrees to obey, which to consider valid, which to consider "binding" upon the faithful.
Those who believe that Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI is a true pontiff, a true Successor of Saint Peter, must submit to him. The Society of Saint Pius X has refused to do this until now because its leaders have in the past seen the doctrinal deficiencies of the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo service and have taken issue with the apostasies and blasphemies of sacrileges associated with concilairism and the conciliar"pontiffs." Rather than drawing the conclusion that it is impossible for the Catholic Church to be responsible for these apostasies and blasphemies and sacrileges, which would mean admitting that "The Nine" were correct, something that is a worse apostasy for many in the Society of Saint Pius X than associating formally and openly with the arch-heretic Ratzinger, the leaders of the Society of Saint Pius X are aping the weasel-mouth statements of those who have compromised the Faith in the past as the "high price of recognition" by the conciliar Vatican, starting by caving in to the demands made by those who deny the one and only Holocaust, the ones about whom Pope Saint Pius X himself said the following:
POPE: We are unable to favor this movement [of Zionism]. We cannot prevent the Jews from going to Jerusalem—but we could never sanction it. The ground of Jerusalem, if it were not always sacred, has been sanctified by the life of Jesus Christ. As the head of the Church I cannot answer you otherwise. The Jews have not recognized our Lord, therefore we cannot recognize the Jewish people.
HERZL: [The conflict between Rome and Jerusalem, represented by the one and the other of us, was once again under way. At the outset I tried to be conciliatory. I said my little piece. . . . It didn’t greatly impress him. Jerusalem was not to be placed in Jewish hands.] And its present status, Holy Father?
POPE: I know, it is disagreeable to see the Turks in possession of our Holy Places. We simply have to put up with it. But to sanction the Jewish wish to occupy these sites, that we cannot do.
HERZL: [I said that we based our movement solely on the sufferings of the Jews, and wished to put aside all religious issues].
POPE: Yes, but we, but I as the head of the Catholic Church, cannot do this. One of two things will likely happen. Either the Jews will retain their ancient faith and continue to await the Messiah whom we believe has already appeared—in which case they are denying the divinity of Jesus and we cannot assist them. Or else they will go there with no religion whatever, and then we can have nothing at all to do with them. The Jewish faith was the foundation of our own, but it has been superceded by the teachings of Christ, and we cannot admit that it still enjoys any validity. The Jews who should have been the first to acknowledge Jesus Christ have not done so to this day.
How can those who belong to a religious community named after Pope Saint Pius X mock their patron saint by recognizing as a legitimate "pontiff" a man who does indeed believe that Judaism enjoys "validity," a man who has violated the Canon Law of the Catholic Church, thus depriving himself of communion within her, by entering into synagogues and a mosque, treating them as places of legitimate worship? Are the following pronouncements to be ignored in order for there be another brick added to the building of a new room in the One World Church?
The spirit of Christ, which dictated the Holy Scriptures, and the spirit which animates and guides the Church of Christ, and teaches her all truth, is the same; and therefore in all ages her conduct on this point has been uniformly the same as what the Holy Scripture teaches. She has constantly forbidden her children to hold any communication, in religious matters, with those who are separated from her communion; and this she has sometimes done under the most severe penalties. In the apostolical canons, which are of very ancient standing, and for the most part handed down from the apostolical age, it is thus decreed: "If any bishop, or priest, or deacon, shall join in prayers with heretics, let him be suspended from Communion". (Can. 44)
Also, "If any clergyman or laic shall go into the synagogue of the Jews, or the meetings of heretics, to join in prayer with them, let him be deposed, and deprived of communion". (Can. 63) (Bishop George Hay, (The Laws of God Forbidding All Communication in Religion With Those of a False Religion.)
Now all these facts are public, you have seen them in the newspapers and the media. What are we to think? What is the reaction of our Catholic Faith? That is what matters. It is not our personal feelings, a sort of impression or admission of some kind. It is a question of knowing what our Faith tells us, faced with these facts. Let me quote a few words - not my words - from Canon Naz’s Dictionary of Canon Law, a wholly official and approved commentary on what has been the Catholic Church’s body of law for nineteen centuries. On the subject of sharing in the worship of non-Catholics (after all, this is what we now see Pope and bishops doing), the Church says, in Canon 1258-1: ‘It is absolutely forbidden for Catholics to attend or take any active part in the worship of non-Catholics in any way whatsoever.’ On this Canon the quasi-official Naz Commentary says, and I quote, ‘A Catholic takes active part when he joins in heterodox; i.e., non-Catholic worship with the intention of honouring God by this means in the way non-Catholics do. It is forbidden to pray, to sing or to play the organ in a heretical or schismatic temple, in association with the people worshipping there, even if the words of the hymn or the song or the prayer are orthodox.’ The reason for this prohibition is that any participation in non-Catholic worship implies profession of a false religion and hence denial of the Catholic Faith. By such participation Catholics are presumed to be adhering to the beliefs of the non- Catholics, and that is why Canon 2316 declares them ‘suspect of heresy, and if they persevere, they are to be treated as being in reality heretics.’
“Now these recent acts of the Pope and bishops, with Protestants, animists and Jews, are they not an active participation in non-Catholic worship as explained by Canon Naz on Canon 1258-1? In which case, I cannot see how it is possible to say that the Pope is not suspect of heresy, and if he continues, he is a heretic, a public heretic. That is the teaching of the Church. (The Angelus, July 1986, transcripts of talks given by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre on March 30 and April 18, 1986.)
One must indeed submit to a true Roman Pontiff. However, no true Successor of Saint Peter publicly manifests himself to be an enemy of God by denying the nature of dogmatic truth, esteeming the symbols of false religions and entering into and treating with respect and reverence places of false worship (as well as propagating the condemned Lutheran notion of Justification, among so many other things). No one on the face of the earth has to submit to such a man as a "pope" as such a man has expelled himself from the bosom of the Catholic Church:
The Church, founded on these principles and mindful of her office, has done nothing with greater zeal and endeavour than she has displayed in guarding the integrity of the faith. Hence she regarded as rebels and expelled from the ranks of her children all who held beliefs on any point of doctrine different from her own. The Arians, the Montanists, the Novatians, the Quartodecimans, the Eutychians, did not certainly reject all Catholic doctrine: they abandoned only a certain portion of it. Still who does not know that they were declared heretics and banished from the bosom of the Church? In like manner were condemned all authors of heretical tenets who followed them in subsequent ages. "There can be nothing more dangerous than those heretics who admit nearly the whole cycle of doctrine, and yet by one word, as with a drop of poison, infect the real and simple faith taught by our Lord and handed down by Apostolic tradition" (Auctor Tract. de Fide Orthodoxa contra Arianos).
The practice of the Church has always been the same, as is shown by the unanimous teaching of the Fathers, who were wont to hold as outside Catholic communion, and alien to the Church, whoever would recede in the least degree from any point of doctrine proposed by her authoritative Magisterium. Epiphanius, Augustine, Theodore :, drew up a long list of the heresies of their times. St. Augustine notes that other heresies may spring up, to a single one of which, should any one give his assent, he is by the very fact cut off from Catholic unity. "No one who merely disbelieves in all (these heresies) can for that reason regard himself as a Catholic or call himself one. For there may be or may arise some other heresies, which are not set out in this work of ours, and, if any one holds to one single one of these he is not a Catholic" (S. Augustinus, De Haeresibus, n. 88).
There is nothing to add at this juncture that has not been contained in Nothing to Negotiate and
Those Who Deny The Holocaust. We must pray and fast as the One World Church is erected on a brick-by-brick basis. Like the Hebrew slaves of old, Bishop Bernard Fellay is helping to supply the straw and the mortar to build this One World Church.
Saint John Bosco's Zeal for Souls
Today is the Feast of Saint John Bosco. It had been my hope to have written an article specifically devoted to this saint, a priest who was so zealous for the conversion of souls that he would bribe stage coach drivers to get to Confession. Our retreat from the harsh winter conditions in Ohio made this impossible for his feast day today. I will endeavor to write an article soon in honor this saint whose novena we pray every evening, remembering the intentions of our benefactors as we do so.
Suffice for present purposes to note that Saint John Bosco, unlike Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI and his band of conciliar revolutionaries who have laid the One World Church trap for the Society of Saint Pius X, sought to convert souls when he was but a teenaged boy:
There were in John's class, at the school in Chieri, several Jews who were in difficulties about their Saturday's work. For them it was the Sabbath, when all work was forbidden. But the older boys used to laugh at them as if it were an extra vacation day. John, who saw that it was a question of conscience, used to send them a list of the work given out, with the explanations. In consequence, they vowed him an eternal friendship, and one of them, who used to frequent the restaurant where John worked, became very intimate with him. One day this young fellow, whose name was Jonas, got mixed up in a school scrape and, anxious about the consequences, came to consult his friend.
"If you were a Christian," said John, "I should take you straight off to Confession, but that can't be done."
"Why not? We can go to Confession if we like."
"Perhaps, but you have no Sacrament of Penance, no power to forgive sins, no guarantee of secrecy."
"I will go to a Catholic priest if you like."
"You can't unless you are baptized and believe in Jesus Christ."
"What would they say at home?"
"If God calls you to this, He will protect you."
"What would you do if you were in my place?" asked the young Jew.
"I would begin to study the catechism," said John.
The advice was taken; John prayed. Light and conviction came to Jonas, but the catechism was discovered. Irate parents took it to the Rabbi and accused John of betraying the friendship and ruining the soul of their son. Both friends had a good deal to suffer; there were even threats of violence. Jonas had to leave home, but he stood firm in his determination to become a Catholic. In the end, friends came to his assistance, the young Jew was baptized and the tumult died down. Several others followed him into the Church. (F. A. Forbes, Saint John Bosco, reprinted by TAN Books and Publishers, Rockford, Illinois, pp. 25-27.)
Such zeal for souls would be condemned in most places in the counterfeit church of conciliarism today. Indeed, the priest who is still the Preacher to the "Papal" Household, Father Raniero Cantalamessa, O.F.M., Cap., said the following in 2005 for which he has never been corrected by "Pope" Benedict XVI:
If Jews one day come (as Paul hopes) to a more positive judgment of Jesus, this must occur through an inner process, as the end of a search of their own (something that in part is occurring). We Christians cannot be the ones who seek to convert them. We have lost the right to do so by the way in which this was done in the past. First the wounds must be healed through dialogue and reconciliation. ("Appropriate Attitude Toward the Jewish People" Zenit, September 30, 2005.)
By the way this was done in the past? By whom? Saint Peter? Saint Stephen the Protomartyr? Saint Paul? Saint John Chrysostom? Saint Vincent Ferrer? Fathers Maria-Alfonse and Theodore Ratisbonne? Saint John Bosco? Pope Saint Pius X? By whom? Bishop Bernard Fellay wants to be in full, open "communion" with Father Raniero Cantalamessa, who believes that God positively wills the existence of false religions?
Saint John Bosco placed all of his apostolic endeavors under the protection of Our Lady Help of Christians and Saint Francis de Sales. May we ask for Our Lady's help in this time of apostasy and betrayal by praying as many Rosaries each day as our states-in-life permit, asking her to have the zeal of Saint John Bosco and of Saint Francis de Sales, who brought back thousands of people steeped in one of the devil's favorite false religions, Calvinism, to be serious about the conversion of our own souls on a daily basis so that we, having made reparation for our sins to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through her own Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, will be able to resist the wiles of the conciliarists and to remain firm in the Faith by cleaving only to those true bishops and true priests who make no concessions to conciliarism whatsoever.
Our Lady's Immaculate Heart will triumph in the end. May our prayers and sacrifices and humiliations and mortifications offered up to her Divine Son through that Immaculate Heart help to bring down the One World Church and to restore the Church Militant, now in the burial of the catacombs, thereafter.
Viva Cristo Rey!
