Standing On Principle Only To Please The Jews
by Thomas A. Droleskey
As should be known by now, this writer carries no brief or any sympathy whatsoever for the antitheistic, racialist, nationalistic socialism of Adolf Hitler and his Third Reich. Hitler had planned to hang Pope Pius XII to death on the obelisk in the Piazza San Pietro and to place a "puppet pope" on the Throne of Saint Peter. Defend Hitler? Defend the Third Reich? Not on this site, my friends. Not on this site.
Thus it is that I do not want to hear from those who want to babble on about "German patriotism" during World War II and the "obligations" of soldiers to obey commands. Post your comments where you will. I have no time whatsoever to deal with defenders of the Third Reich or those who look with any sympathy upon its supposed "original intentions."
Mind you, this has nothing to do with the facts of history concerning the nature and the extent of the crimes committed by agents of the Third Reich before and during World War II. Legitimate historical research is important to get to the facts without such research being "approved" by Talmudic minders so as to use their own cottage industry that capitalizes on their version of history as a wedge to force Catholics into accept their "received truth" without reservation.
Indeed, it is precisely because the conciliar officials have surrendered themselves entirely to these Talmudic minders in order to demonstrate "sensitivity" about the suffering visited upon Jews by the agents of the Third Reich that those hideous apostates have altered the immutable teaching of Holy Mother Church concerning the abrogation of the Old Covenant effected by Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ's Sacrifice of Himself to His Co-Equal and Co-Eternal God the Father on the wood of the Holy Cross in atonement for our sins, thus rendering the entire Jewish religion invalid and hideous in the sight of the true God of Divine Revelation, the Most Blessed Trinity.
As noted a few days ago, Talmudic propagandists have thrown around the phrase "anti-Semitism" ever since World War II to categorize anyone who dares to reiterate the simple, immutable teaching of the Catholic Church about Judaism. The conciliar revolutionaries have done the bidding of their Talmudic minders at almost, although not quite every, turn, starting with the wretched false "pontificate" of the soon-to-be "canonized" Angelo Roncalli/John XXIII (see Two For The Price Of One, part one and Francis: The Latest In A Long Line Of Ecclesiastical Tyrants).
The now retired Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, the supposed "man of faith" (yes, a heretical faith, thank you very much), explained in the most plain and direct terms imaginable that what he represented as the Catholic Church had "defined in a new" its relationship with the "faith of Israel":
Secondly, it was necessary to give a new definition to the
relationship between the Church and the modern State that would make
room impartially for citizens of various religions and ideologies,
merely assuming responsibility for an orderly and tolerant coexistence
among them and for the freedom to practise their own religion.
Thirdly, linked more generally to this was the problem of religious
tolerance - a question that required a new definition of the
relationship between the Christian faith and the world religions. In
particular, before the recent crimes of the Nazi regime and, in general,
with a retrospective look at a long and difficult history, it was
necessary to evaluate and define in a new way the relationship between
the Church and the faith of Israel.
These are all subjects of great importance - they were the great
themes of the second part of the Council - on which it is impossible to
reflect more broadly in this context. It is clear that in all these
sectors, which all together form a single problem, some kind of
discontinuity might emerge. Indeed, a discontinuity had been revealed
but in which, after the various distinctions between concrete historical
situations and their requirements had been made, the continuity of
principles proved not to have been abandoned. It is easy to miss this
fact at a first glance.
It is precisely in this combination of continuity and discontinuity at
different levels that the very nature of true reform consists. In this
process of innovation in continuity we must learn to understand more
practically than before that the Church's decisions on contingent
matters - for example, certain practical forms of liberalism or a free
interpretation of the Bible - should necessarily be contingent
themselves, precisely because they refer to a specific reality that is
changeable in itself. It was necessary to learn to recognize that in
these decisions it is only the principles that express the permanent
aspect, since they remain as an undercurrent, motivating decisions from
within. On the other hand, not so permanent are the
practical forms that depend on the historical situation and are
therefore subject to change.
It is clear that this commitment to
expressing a specific truth in a new way demands new thinking on this
truth and a new and vital relationship with it; it is also clear that
new words can only develop if they come from an informed understanding
of the truth expressed, and on the other hand, that a reflection on
faith also requires that this faith be lived. In this regard,
the programme that Pope John XXIII proposed was extremely demanding,
indeed, just as the synthesis of fidelity and dynamic is demanding.. (Christmas greetings to the Members of the Roman Curia and Prelature, December 22, 2005)
Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI was and remains in retirement a blaspheming heretic, and it is well past time for anyone who claims to be in the least bit intellectually honest to stop using emotionalism to project their own fondest desires into the mind of a man who lost the Catholic Faith early in his youth.
Yes, why is it so very difficult for those traditionally-minded Catholics as yet attached to the counterfeit church of conciliarism who live in "fear of losing it all" to recognize that for Ratzinger/Benedict's proposition quoted above to have been correct, the very Third Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, God the Holy Ghost, not only hid this "knowledge" that
had to be "learned," but He permitted solemn dogmatic councils to falsely teach that the Old Covenant had been abrogated and that had falsely condemned the whole concept of viewing
dogmatic statements in light of the historical circumstances in which
This is not difficult to see, although it is difficult for some, it appears, to accept as it means recognizing that all of their emotionally-laden efforts to denounce what is a dogmatic-canonical teaching of the Catholic Church, namely, that those who defect from the Faith in one thing cannot hold ecclesiastical office legitimately, is true and that it applies at this time.
Ratzinger/Benedict's December 22, 2005, proclamation of the "hermeneutic of continuity," which he had discussed in 1971 and 1990 very clearly, means that, ipso facto, the Catholic Church
has no infallibility whatsoever and that God the Holy Ghost misdirected
the Fathers of the [First] Vatican Council and that the true popes who
reiterated the condemnation were themselves mistaken, that the Catholic Faith is at the mercy of whoever happens to be the pope at any given time, something that Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis is "running with" on a daily basis as he denounces "small-minded rules" and "liturgical formalities."
Why this blasphemy against God the Holy Ghost?
To please the Talmudists. That is why.
And this is why the Diocese of Rome took "stood on principle" to deny convicted Nazi war criminal Erich Priebke a Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical "Mass of Christian Burial":
The traditionalist Society of St. Pius X offered to celebrate a
funeral for convicted war criminal Erich Priebke after the diocese of
Rome said the service would be allowed only in a private home, but
violent protests outside the chapel forced cancellation of the Mass.
Some 500 protesters had gathered Tuesday outside the SSPX district
headquarters in Albano, south of Rome, when a hearse carrying Priebke's
body arrived. People shouted "murderer" and beat on the hearse.
Violence broke out after the arrival of a small group of people
described by witnesses as neo-Nazis. Riot police intervened and two
people were taken into custody, but the protesters remained and,
according to Priebke's lawyer, made it impossible for friends and
relatives of the former Nazi SS officer to get to the chapel.
The lawyer, Paolo Giachini, told reporters outside the SSPX
headquarters that the funeral Mass had not taken place, but that he had
fulfilled his obligation to arrange a funeral. "Now it's up to the
authorities to decide what to do with the body," since he was unable to
find a city where Priebke could be buried.
Priebke died Oct. 11 at the age of 100. A former captain in the Nazi
elite force known as the SS, he was convicted of carrying out a 1944
massacre of 335 Italian civilians in the Ardeatine Caves outside Rome.
At the time of his death, he was serving his sentence under house
Priebke continued to claim he was only following orders when he took
part in the Ardeatine Caves' massacre and, shortly before he died, he
affirmed his belief that the Holocaust was an invention.
The diocese of Rome had refused Giachini's request to allow a funeral to take place in a church or chapel.
In a statement issued Monday, the diocese said, "Considering all the
circumstances of the case, the ecclesial authorities believed that
prayer for the deceased and entrusting him to the mercy of God -- the
aims of a religious funeral -- should take place in the strictest
"Prayers for the dead were never denied," the diocese said, but the
church had a right to insist the rites be "reserved and discreet."
Bishop Marcello Semeraro of Albano, secretary of Pope Francis'
Council of Cardinals, told Rome's Corriere della Sera newspaper
Wednesday that the church would never prohibit prayers for someone, but
canon law does allow a bishop to deny a public funeral to a "manifest
sinner" when it would scandalize the faithful.
In Priebke's case, he said, "the crime was public and notorious, the
lack of conversion was public and notorious, and the scandal it would
have raised in the Christian community was public and notorious."
After agreeing to host the funeral, the Italian district of the
Society of St. Pius X issued a statement on its website saying, "A
Christian who was baptized and received the sacraments of confession and
the Eucharist, no matter what his faults and sins were, to the extent
that he dies reconciled with God and the church, has a right to the
celebration of the holy Mass and a funeral."
The statement said the SSPX condemns "every form of anti-Semitism and
racial hatred, but also hatred under all its forms. The Catholic
religion is one of mercy and forgiveness." (Nazi war criminal's SSPX funeral stopped by protests.)
The case of Erich Priebke is a troubling one as he did not repent publicly of crimes, which he sought to justify by his "duty" to "obey commands." Unjust commands, however, do not oblige the conscience, and one is duty bound before God not to obey. Priebke's claim that the executed Italians were "terrorists" is self-serving as the German forces had no business occupying Rome and subjecting everyone there, Catholic and non-Catholic alike, to terrorism, including wanton, arbitrary murders committed on the street. Monsignor Hugh O'Flaherty, the great "Scarlet Pimpernel of the Vatican," directed a network of priests and Catholic lay volunteers to protect Catholics, Jews and escaped American and British prisoners-of-war from the German forces, led by the the Nazi Chief of Police, Colonel Herbert Kappler, under whom Erich Priebke served.
Kappler, however, converted at the hands of Monsignor O'Flaherty in 1959. He repented of his crimes. Priebke, on the other hand, show no public evidence that he had ever repented of his crimes, and indeed continued to justify them until shortly before his death, leaving behind the following "testament" that was released by his attorney:
The Argentinian government has also refused to allow his body to be returned to be buried next to his wife.
[Priebke Attorney Paolo] Giachini revealed last week that even in his last spoken testament, his client expressed no remorse for his deeds. "It's my way of seeing the world, my ideals, what was the world view for us Germans and is still linked to a sense of self love and honour," Priebke said, according to his lawyer. Some extreme right militants on Facebook organized a meeting under Priebke's former home to honour him with "a fascist salute". (Uncertainty hangs over German war criminal Priebke's funeral.)
You see, this is where I part company with anyone and everyone who would make Erich Priebke a "victim" in death. Although there is much hypocrisy and grandstanding going on right now, something that will be explored shortly, the fact that a baptized Catholic went to his Particular Judgment justifying seeing the world through the lens of Nazism as matching "his ideals" and that he still considered this false ideology to be linked to "a sense of self love and honour" is very problematic. Only a priest would know whether Priebke made a good Confession (to a true priest!) before he died and expressed repentance for the crimes that his public statement above continued to justify. And it makes no difference where some pro-Nazi bishops and priests in Italy and Argentina had helped him after his escape from prison in 1946. The statement quoted just above is a terrible way of preparing for death, of preparing for the moment of one's Particular Judgment.
A Catholic can have no part in Nazism or its defense. None whatsoever.
Pope Pius XI explained this in no uncertain terms in Mit Brennender Sorge, March 17, 1937:
Beware, Venerable Brethren,
of that growing abuse, in speech as in writing, of the name of God as
though it were a meaningless label, to be affixed to any creation, more
or less arbitrary, of human speculation. Use your influence on the
Faithful, that they refuse to yield to this aberration. Our God
is the Personal God, supernatural, omnipotent, infinitely perfect, one
in the Trinity of Persons, tri-personal in the unity of divine essence,
the Creator of all existence. Lord, King and ultimate Consummator of the
history of the world, who will not, and cannot, tolerate a rival God by
This God, this Sovereign Master, has issued commandments whose value is independent of time and space, country and race. As God's sun shines on every human face so His law knows neither
privilege nor exception. Rulers and subjects, crowned and uncrowned,
rich and poor are equally subject to His word. From the fullness of the
Creators' right there naturally arises the fullness of His right to be
obeyed by individuals and communities, whoever they are. This obedience
permeates all branches of activity in which moral values claim harmony
with the law of God, and pervades all integration of the ever-changing
laws of man into the immutable laws of God.
None but superficial minds could stumble into
concepts of a national God, of a national religion; or attempt to lock
within the frontiers of a single people, within the narrow limits of a
single race, God, the Creator of the universe, King and Legislator of
all nations before whose immensity they are "as a drop of a bucket"
(Isaiah xl, 15). (Pope Pius XI, Mit Brennender Sorge, March 17, 1937.)
Erich Priebke's "religion" was Nazism, and it remained his "religion" to the point of his death, it appears from the "testament" that he had authorized is attorney to release after his death. This is, to quote a former mentor and later colleague of mine from Saint John's University in Jamaica. Queens, New York, "un-good."
This having been noted, the officials of the Italian district of the Society of Saint Pius X made a pastoral judgment to provide Priebke in death what had been denied to him by the Diocese of Rome. The priests in the Italian district may have been privy to information that cannot be released without breaking the seal of the confessional. They may have weighed very carefully the statement quoted above. They discharged their duties as they saw fit. Not knowing what, if anything, happened in the internal forum of the Sacrament of Penance, it is impossible to comment further about the Society's decision in this instance, although what is known publicly is troubling. [The Society of Saint Pius X issued a clarification after a few days after this commentary was published, indicating that Erich Priebke had gone to confession and had contrition for his sins. The rest is known to God, to Whom each of us must render an accounting of our lives at the terrible moment of the Particular Judgment. May God have mercy on Erich Priebke's immortal soul.]
All well and good.
What the bulk of this commentary is meant to demonstrate, however, is that the notorious crimes of Erich Priebke caused the officials of the Diocese of Rome in this time of the "tender mercies" of Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis to discover they had "spines" and thus "stood on principles" to deny Erich Priebke a public staging of the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo service, for one reason and one reason only: because he was guilty of crimes against Jews, the shedding of whose blood, it appears, matters more to them than that of the innocent preborn who have been killed by chemical and surgical means by the laws passed and court decisions rendered and executive orders issued by countless numbers of Catholics in public life in the United States of America and around the world. Each of these men and women have been--and those yet alive continue to be--notorious public sinners. Many of these pro-baby-killing Catholics in public life have gone to their deaths without ever once publicly repenting of their crimes, and some of them have been accorded the grandest and most elaborate "Masses of Christian Burial" in spite of this fact. Ah, yes, this is the "time of mercy," according to Bergoglio/Francis.
Edward Moore Kennedy (D-Massachusetts) following his
death on Tuesday, August 25, 2009. Various American "bishops" praised
him for his commitment to the poor and his determination to enact a
Federal takeover of the health care industry. Never mind that Kennedy's
"commitment to the poor" championed one statist "solution" after another
as the poor became enslaved to and engaged in the mesh of bureaucratic
regulations that convinced them they were the "victims" of circumstance
who needed to have their every need provided for by the civil state.
Never mind that Kennedy's "determination" to enact a Federal takeover of
the health care industry was unjust and in violation of the Natural Law
principle of subsidiarity. No, Teddy Kennedy was a "hero" to the poor
and the downtrodden, to the uninsured, to women and to those steeped in
unrepentant sins of perversity. Abortion? Well, isn't that just one itsy
bitsy little issue that ought not to get in the way of praising him for
his alleged "virtues"? (See Another Victim of Americanism; Behold The Free Rein Given to Error; Behold The Free Rein Given to Error; Unfortunate Enough to Be A Baby; Unfortunate Enough to Be A Baby; Beacon of Social Justice?; Spotlight On The Ordinary; What's Good For Teddy Is Good For Benny; Sean O'Malley: Coward and Hypocrite: More Rationalizations and Distortions.) Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis would have been praising him if he had been "elected" in 2005 instead of Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI (remember, he did come in a distant second to the now retired Ratzinger/Benedict).
Pro-abortion Catholics in public life can live and
die as "Catholics" in perfectly good standing in what they think is the
Catholic Church but is actually her counterfeit ape. And they can be
lauded by alleged prelates and clerics long after their deaths.
You want another review of some of the more notorious examples of Catholics in public life who received the Novus Ordo "Mass of Christian Burial" despite their support for baby-killing
Why, of course, I am more than happy to oblige the
twelve of you who will be reading this article:
The late New York State Senator Edward Speno was
permitted to have a "Mass of Christian Burial" at Sacred Heart Church in North Merrick, Long Island, New York (his own pastor, Father Francis Bain, refused such permission), in 1972, two years after he had
voted in favor of the bill to permit surgical baby-killing-on-demand in
the first trimester of pregnancy following his death from a sudden heart
attack. (See the appendix below for material I unearthed about Speno in
an article published six months ago now.)
The late Thomas P. O'Neill was eulogized as a
splendid Catholic by the man who is now the conciliar archpriest of the
Basilica di Santa Maria Maggiore, the protector of perverted priests,
including one who started an organization to promote something so
unspeakable that it will not be repeated here, by the name of Bernard
"Cardinal" Law, in 1994 despite O'Neill's constant support for abortion
The "late" Father Robert Drinan, S.J., known as
"Father Death," who served in the United States House of Representatives
from January 3, 1971, January 3, 1981 (endorsing one Barney Frank to be
his successor when the conciliar Vatican forced him to refrain from
seeking a sixth term in 1980), remained a priest in "good standing" in
the conciliar church until his death on January 28, 2007 despite his
unrepentant support of surgical baby-killing under cover of law,
including the procedure known as "partial-birth abortion."
Drinan was also
instrumental in helping the Kennedy clan to plot a strategy to separate
their "private" beliefs about abortion from their public policies ( See How Support for Abortion Became Kennedy Dogma.)
Drinan even received an award from Saint Joseph's College in Patchogue,
New York, in the late-1990s for his work in behalf of "peace and
justice," a travesty that I covered for The Wanderer at the time.
Drinan's "Mass of Christian Burial" was held at the Jesuit church in
downtown Washington, D.C., Saint Aloysius Church, on February 1, 2007.
Edward Moore Kennedy was one of those who "eulogized" "Father Death.
Nancy Pelosi was another:
Sen. Edward Kennedy noted, "Here on earth, God's work must be our
own" and said that Drinan did that work "armed with moral clarity and
courage." Speaker Pelosi said of Drinan, "It was because of his faith
that he was one of our greatest champions for human rights," and she
quoted him as telling Georgetown students "to go forth into society not
as mere legal tradesmen, but as moral architects." (Robert Drinan, Infanticide, and the "Unthinkable" | First Things)
Edward Moore Kennedy believed
that supporting abortion was "God's work." Ah, yes, just some more of
Kennedy's "accomplishments" praised by Sean "Cardinal" O'Malley (see Sean O'Malley: Coward and Hypocrite).
The late Associate Justice William Brennan of the
Supreme Court of the United States of America was given a "Mass of
Christian Burial" at Saint Matthew's Church on July 29, 1997. This was
permitted by the then conciliar "archbishop" of Washington, D.C., James
"Cardinal" Hickey, despite the fact that Brennan cast one of the seven
affirmative votes in the cases of Roe v. Wade and Doe v. Bolton, January 22, 1973, and despite te fact that Brennan served also as one of the seven affirmative votes in the case of Griswold v. Connecticut,
June 7, 1965, that invalidated a long-unenforced Connecticut state
statute that banned the sale of contraceptives to married couples, a
case that provided a good deal of the "legal reasoning," such as it was,
for the Roe and Doe cases, especially by inventing
the so-called "right to privacy" as found in what were called the
"penumbras" (little shadows of emanations) from could be found various
provisions of the Bill of Rights and made applicable to the states
through the Fourteenth Amendment's liberty and due process of law
William Brennan's "Mass of Christian Burial" was a
travesty from beginning to end. The pro-abortion, pro-Communist,
pro-Fidel Castro, pro-South Central Los Angeles rioters United States
Representative Maxine Waters was so impressed by that travesty, which
featured an auxiliary "bishop," William Lori, now the conciliar "bishop"
of Bridgeport, Connecticut, in attendance as the official
representative of the archdiocese, that she asked that its program be
inserted into the Congressional Record, from the appendix below has been taken. One of those who gave a "eulogy," a tribute that is
forbidden, at least formally, even by the rules of the counterfeit
church of conciliarism, at this travesty was then President William
Jefferson Blythe Clinton. United States Senator Edward Moore Kennedy did
so as well. Another featured eulogist was none other than the aforementioned Father "Death"
himself, the pro-abortion Reverend Robert Drinan, S.J.
The late United States Senator Daniel Patrick
Moynihan (D-New York) was permitted to have a "Mass of Christian Burial"
at Saint Patrick's Cathedral in the Borough of Manhattan of the City of
New York, New York, in 2003 despite his consistent support for abortion
"rights," mitigated, some believe, because he did vote to partially ban
partial-birth abortions. To oppose a particular form of child-killing
while maintaining the "right" of women to murder their children by other
means does not constitute a "mitigation" of one's support for a sin
that cries out to Heaven for vengeance.
Those pro-abort Catholics in public life today know that they can
live and die without any penalty being imposed upon by the spiritual
robber barons of the counterfeit church of conciliarism. Vice President
Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., Nancy Patricia D'Alesandro Pelosi
(D-California), the Minority Leader of the United States House of
Representatives, United States Senators Patrick Leahy (D-Vermont), Susan
Collins (R-Maine), John Kerry (D-Massachusetts), Jack Reed (D-Rhode
Island), Robert Menendez (D-New Jersey), Barbara Mikulski (D-Maryland),
Richard Durbin (D-Illinois), Thomas Harkin (D-Iowa), and Patricia Murray
(D-Washington) are just some of those who know that they will
never suffer any penalties in this life for defying the binding precepts
of the Divine Positive Law and the Natural Law by their support of the
chemical and surgical assassination of innocent preborn children in
their mothers' wombs. (See "Lucky" Mario May Not Be So "Lucky" In The End.)
Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis himself issues not one word of any castigation to the pro-abortion politicians who come a calling to visit him at the Casa Santa Marta inside of the walls of the Occupied Vatican on the West Bank of the Tiber River. One of his closest friends is a pro-abortion, pro-perversity Talmudic rabbi, Abraham Skorka. Ah, yes, the "time of mercy." Ain't it grand?
None of these now deceased pro-abortion Catholic public officials,including Geraldine Ann Ferraro-Zaccaro, who was given a full send conciliar send-off at the Church of Saint Thomas More in the Borough of Manhattan, the City of New York, New York, on March 31, 2011, ever abjured their support for chemical and surgical baby-killing under cover of the civil law. Each belongs to a pantheon of dead Catholic politicians who died in "good standing" in the structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism without once publicly abjuring their support for one of the four sins that cry out to Heaven for vengeance, willful murder. Having had the Particular Judgment rendered on her immortal soul by our exacting Judge Who gives us until our dying breath to repent of our sins, each of these individuals had to come face to face with the truth of the following words contained in Pope Pius XI's Casti Connubii, December 31, 1930:
Those who hold the reins of government should not forget that it is the duty of public authority by appropriate laws and sanctions to defend the lives of the innocent, and this all the more so since those whose lives are endangered and assailed cannot defend themselves. Among whom we must mention in the first place infants hidden in the mother's womb. And if the public magistrates not only do not defend them, but by their laws and ordinances betray them to death at the hands of doctors or of others, let them remember that God is the Judge and Avenger of innocent blood which cried from earth to Heaven. (Pope Pius XI, Casti Connubii, December 31, 1930.)
Some would protest that the now-deceased Catholic pro-aborts and their very much alive friends today are "personally opposed to abortion but I can't 'impose' my morality upon others" slogan to justify their support for baby-killing under cover of the civil law. Such people, and, sadly, I have a few formerly close friends and once-respected colleagues who remain among their number, have zero Catholic ground on which to stand before God on that one, something that Pope Leo XIII made clear in Immortale Dei, November 1, 1885:
Hence, lest concord be broken by rash charges, let this be understood by all, that the integrity of Catholic faith cannot be reconciled with opinions verging on naturalism or rationalism, the essence of which is utterly to do away with Christian institutions and to install in society the supremacy of man to the exclusion of God. Further, it is unlawful to follow one line of conduct in private life and another in public, respecting privately the authority of the Church, but publicly rejecting it; for this would amount to joining together good and evil, and to putting man in conflict with himself; whereas he ought always to be consistent, and never in the least point nor in any condition of life to swerve from Christian virtue.
Few in number are the conciliar "bishops" who dare to speak truth to power, who dare to remind those who support chemical and surgical baby-killing and special rights, including "marriage," for those engaged in unrepentant perverse sins in violation of the Sixth and Ninth Commandments of these terrible words of Our Divine Redeemer, Christ the King, as contained in the Gospel according to Saint Mark:
Thus it is that the 'brave stance" of the Diocese of Rome denying the late Erich Priebke a public staging of the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo "Mass of Christian Burial" is utter hypocrisy designed to curry favor with the ancient enemies of Christ the King as the conciliar officials have never, at least not to my own knowledge, denied a public "Mass of Christian Burial" to a pro-abortion, pro-perversity Catholic who have served in public life and had the blood of the innocent dripping on their hands up to the moment of the Particular Judgments.
Taking away nothing at all from the horrific nature of crimes committed by Erich Priebke and the inexcusable nature of his self-defense, the blood of the innocent preborn is no less precious in the sight of God than any other innocent human being put to death under cover of the civil law and/or by wanton servants of various political ideologies.
Moreover, it must be recognized that the most notorious public sinners on the face of this earth are the conciliar revolutionaries themselves, men who have blasphemed God, dared to promulgate sacrilegious and invalid liturgical rites, prayed publicly with leaders of false religions and esteemed the symbols of those religions, propagated one condemned proposition after another.
Indeed, Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis is offending God almost every time he opens his mouth to denounce the "no church" and as he reaffirms public officials who support grave moral evils under the cover of the civil law as he praises them for finding ways to "serve the poor." He is the most notorious public sinner on the face of this earth right now, and the man who lives a short distance away from him is just as guilty in the eyes of God (see Mister Asteroid Is Looking Pretty Good Right About Now).
Yes, the conciliar officials offend God daily. Daily. Their spine only stiffens when it comes to doing showing their "bona fides" to the Talmudists, which includes denouncing terrible people such as us who adhere, despite our own sins and failings, to everything taught by the Catholic Church from time immemorial and who seek to worship him in the Immemorial Mass of Tradition.
Are we willing to pray as many Rosaries each day as our state-in-life permits to maintain our confidence that God does not indeed reward those who are patient in their sufferings for the cause of truth, that He will come to rescue them without delay?
We must be as willing as Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque to suffer for the needs of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, formed out of and united to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, at this time when figures of Antichrist do everything possible to please His enemies while wounding His Mystical Body, the Church Militant, and persecuting those who seek only to follow the path of prayer, penance, sacrifice, suffering, fasting and almsgiving to Heaven as His consecrated slaves through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Vivat Christus Rex! Viva Cristo Rey!

Our Lady of the Rosary, pray for us.
Saint Joseph, pray for us.
Saints Peter and Paul, pray for us.

The Order of Celebration
Prelude Jesu dulcis memoria (Jesus, the sweet thought
of you)-- Tomas Luis de Victoria. O taste and see.--Ralph Vaughan
Entrance Procession Joyful, Joyful, We Adore You.--Henry Van Dyke; Ludwig van Beethoven; Tune: Ode to Joy:
Joyful, joyful, we adore you, God of glory, Lord of love; Hearts unfold like flowers before you, Opening to the sun above.
Melt the clouds of sin and sadness; Drive the dark of doubt away; Giver of immortal gladness, Fill us with the light of day!
All your works with joy surround you, Earth and
heav'n reflect your rays, Stars and angels sing around you, Center of
unbroken praise; Field and forest, vale and mountain, Flowery meadow,
flashing sea, Chanting bird and flowing fountain, Praising you
Always giving and forgiving, Ever blessing, ever
blest, Wellspring of the joy of living, Ocean depth of happy rest!
Loving Father, Christ our brother, Let your light upon us shine; Teach
us how to love each other, Lift us to the joy divine. Mortals join the
mighty chorus, Which the morning stars began; God's own love is reigning
o'er us, Joining people hand in hand.
Ever singing, march we onward, Victors in the midst of strife; Joyful music leads us sunward In the triumph song of life.
Greeting and Sprinkling with Holy Water.

Richard Cushing's Endorsement of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy's Invalid Marriage to Aristotle Onassis
This idea of saying she's excommunicated,
that she's a public sinner—what a lot of nonsense. Only God knows who is
a sinner and who is not. Why can't she marry whomever she wants?
The speaker defending Jackie Kennedy's
marriage to Aristotle Onassis was no gossip columnist or pundit—indeed,
few society reporters were so disposed. He was Richard Cardinal Cushing,
Archbishop of Boston, Prince of the Holy Roman Church and—as it turned
out last week—foremost a friend in need.
The cardinal made his defense of Jackie at a
meeting of Boston's Caritas Guild, composed of the city's licensed
beverage executives, and he chose that platform to stress
caritas—charity. As Cushing knows, it is one of the most elusive of
virtues. Two days after his speech, he announced that the volume of hate
mail he had received as a consequence, some of it "in the language of
the gutter," had persuaded him to resign his see at the end of this year
instead of his previous target date, August 1970.
defense of Jackie by Cushing—who had presided at her first wedding in
1953 and at John Kennedy's funeral ten years later—was not very well
received in Rome either. Before Cushing spoke out, the Vatican's chief
press officer, Monsignor Fausto Vallainc, had expressed the church's
official view that Jackie had "knowingly violated the law of the church"
and was ineligible to receive the sacraments. Although reluctant to
dispute a cardinal, Vatican theologians simply reiterated their
interpretation of the church's law after Cushing's statement.
In announcing his decision to resign well ahead of schedule, Cushing
complained that 98% of the mail he had received since his statement to
the Caritas Guild had condemned his stand. The cardinal sentimentally
pointed out that his own sister had married a Jew outside the church and
that, while Mrs. Onassis might not be able to receive the sacraments,
"she should continue all the private devotions she had as a Catholic."
It was the third time that Cushing had
publicly announced his intention to resign. A product of Boston's
once-Irish urban ghetto, he was named Archbishop of the city in 1944,
and subsequently proved to be one of the great school and church
builders of American Catholicism. Affectionately human and totally
unpredictable, Cushing was, more importantly, a pioneer ecumenicist in
the open style of Pope John, a maverick prelate who found it possible,
at various times, to endorse both the John Birch Society and the
N.A.A.C.P. In poor health for many years—and, at 73, only two years away
from the age limit suggested for episcopal resignations by Pope
Paul—Cushing had good reason to ask to be relieved of duty. The Pope is
said to have a high regard for Cushing and may well decide to refuse his
resignation. On the other hand, if the cardinal mentioned illness or
fatigue in his formal request to Paul, that might persuade the Vatican
this time to accede to his wishes. (Read more: http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article.)
[Thomas A. Droleskey note: Cushing's resignation in 1968 was not accepted by Giovanni Montini/Paul the Sick at the time. Cushing did not
retire until September 8, 1970, after he had turned seventy-five years
of age. He died nearly two months later, on November 2, 1970. Oh, by the
way, Cushing endorsed the John Birch Society because of its
anti-Communism and because its leading founder, the late Robert Welch,
believed that Communism had to be fought with Americanism, not, of
course, the restoration of the Social Reign of Christ the King as we
pray Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary in fulfillment of her Fatima Message to
defeat the anti-Incarnational forces at work in the work. Cushing, a
thorough Americanist, thought that this was all just peachy keen swell.
