To Be Loved by The Jews

by Thomas A. Droleskey

At that time, Jesus said to the multitudes of the Jews: "Which of you shall convince Me of sin? If I say the truth to you, why do you not believe Me? He that is of God, heareth the words of God. Therefore you hear them not, because you are not of God." The Jews therefore answered, and said to Him: Do not we say well, that Thou art a Samaritan, and hast a devil? Jesus answered: "I have not a devil, but I honor My Father, and you have dishonoured Me. But I seek not My own glory; there is One that seeketh and judgeth. Amen, amen, I say to you, If any man keep My word, he shall not see death for ever." The Jews therefore said: Now we know that Thou hast a devil. Abraham is dead, and the prophets; and Thou sayest: If any man keep My word, he shall not taste death for ever. Art Thou greater than our father Abraham, who is dead? and the prophets are dead. Whom dost Thou make Thyself? Jesus answered: "If I glorify Myself, My glory is nothing. It is My Father that glorifieth Me, of Whom you say that He is your God. And you have not known Him; but I know Him. And if I shall say that I know Him not, I shall be like to you, a liar. But I do know Him, and do keep his word. Abraham your father rejoiced that he might see My day: he saw it, and was glad." The Jews therefore said to Him: Thou art not yet fifty years old, and hast Thou seen Abraham? Jesus said to them: "Amen, amen, I say to you, before Abraham was made, I AM." They took up stones therefore to cast at Him; but Jesus hid Himself, and went out of the temple. (John: 8: 46-59.)


We are in Passiontide. The passage from the Gospel according to Saint John that was read at Holy Mass yesterday refers to Our Lord's specific denunciation of the faithless Jews who refused to believe the signs of His Sacred Divinity that He had clearly given to them in the preceding three years of His Public Ministry. No one else had spoken with His authority. He healed the crippled and restored sight to the blind. He raised Jairius's daughter and His beloved friend Lazarus from the dead. The Jews, though, did not believe in Him. They did not want to humble themselves before Him. They did not want to admit that the very One Who had been prophesied by the Prophets was in their very midst. To admit that their very Messias was in their midst would have meant changing their lives by surrendering their authority to Him, Who they disparaged as the Son of a carpenter from Nazareth, out of which nothing good could possibly come.

Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ explained to them why they did not believe the signs that He had performed. He explained this to them plainly without any degree of equivocation, telling them that they were not of God. So committed were the Pharisees to their own power and their own sense of self-importance that they made made themselves out like unto God. They showed themselves to be completely unwilling to accept even the possibility that the Messias was among them, determining to kill Him when He proclaimed Himself to be Co-Equal with God the Father as He said, "Amen, amen, I say to you, before Abraham was made, I AM."

The Jews of Our Lord's time were of the world. They persisted in their unbelief even as Our Lord continued to condemn them for their refusal to open the eyes of their souls to see Who He was and why He had come, namely, to redeem them from their sins. The confrontation between Christ the King and His sworn enemies is recounted all throughout Passion Week, including in the Gospel that is proclaimed on Wednesday of Passion Week, April 13, 2011:

At that time, it was the feast of the Dedication at Jerusalem, and it was winter. And Jesus walked in the temple, in Solomon's porch. The Jews therefore came round about Him, and said to Him, How long dost Thou hold our souls in suspense? If Thou be the Christ, tell us plainly. Jesus answered them, "I speak to you, and you believe not: the works that I do in the name of My Father they give testimony of Me; but you do not believe, because you are not of My sheep. My sheep hear My voice, and I know them, and they follow Me. And I give them life ever­lasting, and they shall not perish forever, and no man shall pluck them out of My hand. That which My Father hath given Me is greater than all, and no one can snatch them out of the hand of My Father. I and the Father are one." The Jews then took up stones to stone Him. Jesus answered them, "Many good works I have showed you from My Father; for which of those works do you stone Me?" The Jews answered Him. For a good work we stone Thee not, but for blasphemy; and because that Thou, being a man, makest Thyself God. Jesus answered them, "Is it not written in your law, I said, You are gods? If He called them gods to whom the word of God was spoken, and the Scripture can not be broken, do you say of Him, Whom the Father hath sanctified, and sent into the world, Thou blasphemest, because I said, I am the Son of God? If I do not the works of My Father, believe Me not: but if I do, though you will not believe Me, believe the works, that you may know and believe that the Father is in Me, and I in the Father." (John 10: 22-38.)


The Jews were ready to stone Our Lord because He spoke the truth to them, a truth that they did not want to hear. The adherents of the Talmud today are not, at least for the most part, the actual physical descendants of Abraham, being descended from Russian Khazars, although they share the same intense hatred for Divine Redeemer, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, as did those who were the actual physical descendants of Abraham, a point made clear by Father Louis Campbell, the pastor of Saint Jude Shrine in Stafford, Texas, a few years ago:





Jesus Christ is the Great Prophet foretold by Moses, Whom all nations and peoples must hear and obey, lest they be "destroyed from among the people." Jesus was not a mere prophet, like Moses, Jeremiah, or Isaiah. In Jesus there resided the prophetic gift in all its fullness. When God speaks, we must listen in fear and trembling (cf. Isaias 66:5).

Though they have rejected the Great Prophet, the Jews still think that the promises made to Abraham are theirs, and that all the lands promised to the ancient Israelites are theirs by right, and will be theirs in fact. This means that no one else who occupies these lands, be they Palestinians, Lebanese, or whatever, have any rights, and that they can be dispossessed of the lands they have occupied for millennia. The ancient Israelites, whose heirs they imagine themselves to be, were commanded by God to exterminate the Philistines, were they not? And who are the descendants of the Philistines? Why, the Palestinians and the Lebanese, of course! Their rights can be ignored with impunity.

Then there are those of the Christian Fundamentalist Right in the Unites States, the Christian Zionists, who support Israeli claims, egged on by such false prophets as Jerry Falwell, Hal Lindsey, Jack Van Impe, and John Hagee. Thousands of evangelical Christians recently arrived from all 50 states in Washington, where they have enormous political influence, for the first annual summit of Christians United for Israel, Hagee being the main organizer.




"For the first time in the history of Christianity in America," Hagee said, "Christians will go to the Hill to support Israel as Christians." They will urge the US government "not to restrain Israel in any way in the pursuit of Hamas and Hezbollah… We want our Congress to make sure that not one dime of American money goes to support Hamas and Hezbollah or the enemies of Israel."


Then Hagee declares: "When they see what's going on in the Middle East, a whole range of enemies arrayed against God's people, they see God's word being played out on their television sets. They see Israel triumphing over its enemies as proof that God's promises remain" (http://news.bbc.co.uk/go/pr/fr/-/2/hi/americas/5193092.stm).

It is as if Jesus Christ never came and established a New Covenant in His Blood, and founded the Holy Catholic Church. God's promises were fulfilled in Jesus Christ and in those who follow Him. Hagee, and those like him, have an Old Testament theological viewpoint, and have betrayed Jesus Christ, in Whom the Scriptures are fulfilled. Who are God's people but those who have believed in His word and obey His commands, whether Jews or not? According to St. Paul, "There is neither Jew nor Greek; there is neither slave nor freeman; there is neither male nor female. For you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ's, then you are the offspring of Abraham, heirs according to promise" (Galatians 3:28,29).

The Jews are children of Abraham according to the flesh only, natural descendants. Some of them, that is. Are those whom we call Jews today the descendants of the Jews who were dispersed among the nations after the destruction of Jerusalem by the Romans in 70 A.D., or even of the ten tribes that were carried off into captivity by the ancient Assyrians in 721 B.C.? On the contrary, most Jews today are the so-called Ashkenazi Jews, descended from the ancient Khazars of Eastern Europe. Despite their prominence in the Jewish community they do not have Jewish blood, but were converted to Judaism in the ninth century. They do not have Jewish blood, and they follow the modern Jewish Talmudic religion. How does that make them "God's people," and the "inheritors of the promises"?

On May 14, 1948, on the day in which the British Mandate over Palestine expired, the Jewish People's Council gathered at the Tel Aviv Museum and declared the establishment of the State of Israel. The new state was recognized that night by the United States, and three days later by the USSR. The Vatican, out of concern for the safety of the Holy Places and the rights of the Palestinians, many of whom are Catholic, did not recognize the modern state of Israel until John Paul II, fervently pro-Jewish, gave it official Vatican recognition on April 20, 1984.

Contrary to what the Jewish Zionists expect, they will not reign as masters of the world from Jerusalem. The servile nations will not come to Mount Zion bearing gifts. Pray for the Jews! They will be all but exterminated except for the remnant who will turn to Jesus Christ and be saved.

And contrary to what the Christian Zionists expect, the Temple will not be rebuilt, and 144,000 Jews will not be converted to reign with Jesus Christ from the Temple in Jerusalem for a thousand years. (Father Louis Campbell, "And I Saw No Temple Therein".)


So much for the nonsense of Catholic apostates such as Glenn Beck who proclaimed recently that he stands for Israel because it is a "democracy" and, unlike the Mohammedan countries that surround it, it protects women and the "rights" of those who are engaged in unrepentant acts of perversity against the Sixth and Ninth Commandments. Never mind the fact that the State of Israel was founded as thousands upon thousands of Palestinian Arabs, many of whom were Christians, were forced out of their own homes and placed into the equivalent of concentration camps that have been termed, most euphemistically, as "refugee camps." Never mind the fact that the Jews were expelled from Jerusalem in 70 A.D. as a result of their rejection of Our Lord Himself and of the preaching of His Gospel that He entrusted to His Apostles, dispersed as a sign of God's disfavor with them. (See also Worthy Successors of Herod the Great and Moral Monsters.)

No, Glenn Beck tells us that we are supposed to "stand for Israel" because it is a "democracy" and protects the women and the "rights" of those who are committing the sin of Sodom that cries to Heaven for vengeance. How can anyone, no less a Catholic, take such a naturalist blowhard seriously as a force for "good" in the world? It is not to be "anti-Semitic" to point out that no one but no one in the United States of America is permitted to be successful in the mainstream media without bowing at the altar of the Talmudists. Ah, yes, so many people want to be loved by the Jews of today who are just as fierce in their combat against Christ the King now as were the Jews during Passiontide when He submitted Himself to their unspeakably cruel designs.

Glenn Beck, naturalist buffoon that he is, is far from the most outrageous of public figures who worship at the altar of the Talmudists. Almost every elected official in public life waxes romantically about the "democracy" that is said to be the State of Israel despite its murderous, amoral policies created and implemented by men who consider the lives of non-Jews to be quite expendable in order to retaliated against and thus deter terrorist attacks upon innocent Israelis, each of whom is certainly deserving of being protected from such attacks as they are human beings made in the image and likeness of God, Who wills their conversion to the true Faith before they die. Very few public officials in the United States of America have dared to criticize the massive retaliatory policies of the Israeli Defense Force that have wreaked such death and destruction in Lebanon and the West Bank and Gaza.

The only calculus used by the Zionists of the State of Israel and by their Mohammedan antagonists in such organizations as Hamas and Hezbollah is realpolitik: will a particular military strategy achieve its goals even if civilians must die in the process. Trying to assess military operations in light of the Just War Theory is anathema to men who reject the Sacred Divinity of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, He Who is the Prince of Peace Incarnate? Never! Not for the adherents of the Talmud.. Fueled by their captivity to the devil by means of Original Sin, Mohammedans and adherents of the Talmud are content to target the innocent and condemn them to death to achieve "goals" that lead only to more violence and more killing in the future.

Future generations of Hamas fighters and recruits for Hezbollah will result from the indiscriminate bloodletting unleashed by the moral monsters of Tel Aviv, continuing a cycle of bloodshed that delights the devil no end as the very land in which Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ was conceived in His Most Blessed Mother's Virginal and Immaculate Womb, born in the cradle in the stable in the cave in Bethlehem, raised to adulthood in Nazareth, and preached before His Passion, Death and Resurrection in Jerusalem suffers yet from the consequences of the Abrahamic Jews' rejection of Him as the Messiah and from the presence of infidels who blaspheme Him as they deny His Sacred Divinity.

Much American blood has been expended needlessly in the prosecution of wars in Iraq to make the Middle East "safe for Israel" even though the Zionist state is perfectly capable of defending itself and despite the fact that the power vacuum created by the United States in Iraq has empowered and emboldened the influence of the Islamic Republic of Iran there. And it has been the influence of Iran that has helped to usher in the bloodletting against Chaldean Rite Catholics in Iraq. Which brave American policy maker who stands so ready to defend everything done by the State of Israel has dared to speak out publicly against the slaughter of Catholics in Iraq that have been made possible by the unjust, immoral American invasion and occupation of that country, an enterprise that was planned mostly by neoconservative Jewish war hawks (see Longer Than World War II)? None. None whatsoever.

What is true of the obsequious cowards in the government of the United States of America who receive vast amounts of campaign contributions from donors who are adherents of the Talmud is, of course, much more true of the apostates who masquerade as officials of the Catholic Church in the counterfeit church of conciliarism. The conciliar "popes" and their "bishops" have been bowing and scraping at the altar of the Talmudists ever since the "pontificate" of Angelo Roncalli/John XXIII. Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI has gone so far as to say the following as regards contemporary Jews:



In its work, the Biblical Commission could not ignore the contemporary context, where the shock of the Shoah has put the whole question under a new light. Two main problems are posed: Can Christians, after all that has happened, still claim in good conscience to be the legitimate heirs of Israel's Bible? Have they the right to propose a Christian interpretation of this Bible, or should they not instead, respectfully and humbly, renounce any claim that, in the light of what has happened, must look like a usurpation? The second question follows from the first: In its presentation of the Jews and the Jewish people, has not the New Testament itself contributed to creating a hostility towards the Jewish people that provided a support for the ideology of those who wished to destroy Israel? The Commission set about addressing those two questions. It is clear that a Christian rejection of the Old Testament would not only put an end to Christianity itself as indicated above, but, in addition, would prevent the fostering of positive relations between Christians and Jews, precisely because they would lack common ground. In the light of what has happened, what ought to emerge now is a new respect for the Jewish interpretation of the Old Testament. On this subject, the Document says two things. First it declares that “the Jewish reading of the Bible is a possible one, in continuity with the Jewish Scriptures of the Second Temple period, a reading analogous to the Christian reading, which developed in parallel fashion” (no. 22). It adds that Christians can learn a great deal from a Jewish exegesis practised for more than 2000 years; in return, Christians may hope that Jews can profit from Christian exegetical research (ibid.). I think this analysis will prove useful for the pursuit of Judeo-Christian dialogue, as well as for the interior formation of Christian consciousness. (Joseph "Cardinal" Ratzinger, Preface to The Jewish People and Their Scriptures in the Christian Bible.)

It is of course possible to read the Old Testament so that it is not directed toward Christ; it does not point quite unequivocally to Christ.  And if Jews cannot see the promises as being fulfilled in him, this is not just ill will on their part, but genuinely because of the obscurity of the texts and the tension in the relationship between these texts and the figure of Jesus.  Jesus brings a new meaning to these texts – yet it is he who first gives them their proper coherence and relevance and significance.  There are perfectly good reasons, then, for denying that the Old Testament refers to Christ and for saying, No, that is not what he said.  And there are also good reasons for referring it to him – that is what the dispute between Jews and Christians is about.” (Joseph "Cardinal" Ratzinger, God and the World, p. 209.)

To the religious leaders present this afternoon, I wish to say that the particular contribution of religions to the quest for peace lies primarily in the wholehearted, united search for God.  Ours is the task of proclaiming and witnessing that the Almighty is present and knowable even when he seems hidden from our sight, that he acts in our world for our good, and that a society’s future is marked with hope when it resonates in harmony with his divine order.  It is God’s dynamic presence that draws hearts together and ensures unity.  In fact, the ultimate foundation of unity among persons lies in the perfect oneness and universality of God, who created man and woman in his image and likeness in order to draw us into his own divine life so that all may be one. ("Pope" Benedict XVI, Courtesy visit to the President of the State of Israel at the presidential palace in Jerusalem, May 11, 2009.)

9. Christians and Jews share to a great extent a common spiritual patrimony, they pray to the same Lord, they have the same roots, and yet they often remain unknown to each other.  It is our duty, in response to God’s call, to strive to keep open the space for dialogue, for reciprocal respect, for growth in friendship, for a common witness in the face of the challenges of our time, which invite us to cooperate for the good of humanity in this world created by God, the Omnipotent and Merciful. (Ratzinger/Benedict at Rome synagogue: ‘May these wounds be healed forever!’ )

The Pharisees of Our Lord's day would not accept His Sacred Divinity even though He It plainly manifest before their very eyes.

Similarly, there are Pharisees amongst us today who would claim that it is impossible" to recognize apostasy, which is the spirit of Antichrist, represented by the words and deeds of the conciliar "popes," including the words above that have been written or uttered by "Pope" Benedict XVI, including in his recently released book (see Impressed With His Own Originality and Accepting "Popes" As Unreliable Teachers).

Alas, recognizing apostasy is not a matter of "law." Truth is clear. It is plain. One does not need advanced degrees in theology to recognize that which is Catholic from that which is not. One cannot dissent from a single iota of the Catholic Faith and remain a member therein. No "declaration" is necessary for one to expel himself from the Church. A canonical declaration of such an expulsion is based on a finding that one has expelled himself from the Faith by violating the binding precepts of the Divine Positive Law. The fact of one's expulsion before any canonical declaration is evident to God and is made manifest to mere mortals by one's words and deeds.

How else could "conservative" and traditionally-minded Catholics in the structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism conclude that the likes of Edward Moore Kennedy and Geraldine Anne Ferraro-Zaccaro should have been denied their "Masses of Christian Burial" because of their unrepentant support for chemical and surgical baby-killing until the point of their deaths? To conclude that Catholics pro-aborts in public life have excommunicated themselves is not to "presume" anything about them. It is merely to note a fact that is observable by the use of our sensus Catholicus. Did not Saint Basil himself separate himself from his bishop when he, Saint Basil, was only a lector even though the bishop had not been "declared" outside of the pale of Holy Mother Church?  

Similarly, the conciliar "popes" have given us every evidence that they defected from the Catholic Faith long before their apparent "elections" to the Throne of Saint Peter. Their words and deeds of these men during their false "pontificates" are simply public ratifications of their lifelong apostasies concerning the nature of dogmatic truth as they have embraced the "new ecclesiology" and false ecumenism and religious liberty and separation of Church and State and as they have offended the greater honor and glory and majesty of God by publicly esteeming the symbols of false religions and praising their nonexistent ability to "contribute" to the betterment of the world.

No true pope of the Catholic Church has ever sought to appease the ancient enemies of the Catholic Church who deny the Sacred Divinity of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. The conciliar "popes" have done this consistently over the course of the past fifty-two and one-half years now. Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI explained that it was "necessary" to change what he believes is the "Church's" "relationship to the faith of Israel" in light of the crimes committed by agents of the Third Reich of Adolf Hitler during World War II, an apostate assertion that was dealt with last on this site in Saint Vincent Ferrer and Anti-Saint Vincent Ferrers. Ratzinger/Benedict has personally bowed to the public and private pressures brought upon him by adherents of the Talmud to "revise" the Good Friday Prayer of the Jews that is used in the modernized version of the Immemorial Mass of Tradition that was promulgated by Angelo Roncalli/John XXIII in 1961 and he was quick to respond to criticism directed at him by Talmudic rabbis for the "lifting" of the "excommunication" that had been imposed on Bishop Richard Williamson of the Society of Saint Pius X even though the latter had put into question the exact nature and extent of the crimes of the Third Reich (see Nothing New Under the Conciliar Sun).

The currently reigning "false pontiff" has also given audiences to rabbis who have been concerned about the "beatification" process of Pope Pius XII. This is without precedent in the history of the Catholic Church. It is, however, but a continuation of the soon-to-be beatified Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II, who set the stage for Ratzinger/Benedict's regular visits to Talmudic synagogues, which are, of course, dens of the devil himself.

The teaching of the Catholic Church is clear and consistent when it comes to religious intercourse with adherents of the Talmud and their synagogues:

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.)


It does not take any act of "presumption" to conclude that the conciliar "popes" have committed acts that have placed themselves outside of the pale of the Catholic Church or that some of these hideous actions have been undertaken by a desire to be loved by the perfidious Jews of today who make war upon the Catholic Faith just as much now as the Jews of Abraham made war upon Our Lord in the days leading up to His Passion and Death and as they made war upon the Apostles thereafter until the Romans destroyed Jerusalem in 70 A.D.

Thus it is that the same enemies of the Catholic Faith who were given truly unprecedented access to "lobby" their interests in the Vatican since the "pontificate" of John XXIII are aglow over the forthcoming "beatification" termed as the "Pope of the Jews" by a reporter for "Rome Reports," the aforementioned Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II.

A Talmudic rabbi named Jack Bemporad, who is of the "Reform" branch of Talmudism that supports chemical and surgical baby-killing and perversity and other grave evils in civil society under the cover of the civil law and is the founder of the "Center for Interreligious Understanding," praised John Paul II in an interview that was aired recently on Rome Reports, stating that he gave a "blessing" of the late "pontiff" in January of 2005 along with three other Talmudic rabbis. Would Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, the very One Whose Vicar on earth Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II believed himself to be, have permitted adherents of a false religion that denies His own Sacred Divinity to "bless" Him?

This is not politeness. This is apostasy by way of signifying that rabbis whose religion is from the devil can in some way administer a "blessing" in the Holy Name of the true God of Divine Revelation. This is impossible. This is a public manifestation by the devil of his mockery of what he thinks is the Catholic Church and the papacy. Yet, of course, it is by such actions that the conciliar "popes" have taught Catholics and non-Catholics alike that God is pretty much pleased with all "believers" as long as they are acting in good "conscience," something that is simply not do. Again, there is no precedent for this within the history of the Catholic Church, which has never bestowed papal knighthoods upon those who are committed to the promotion of one evil after another in civil society as has been done by the conciliar "popes" (see Continuing to Knight Infidels).

The conciliar "popes" have indeed gone to great efforts to be loved by the Jews, who are simply not of God, demonstrating that they, the conciliar "popes" cannot possibly love God as He has revealed Himself to us exclusively through His true Church that he founded upon the Rock of Peter, the Pope. This effort to be liked and respected and understood by the Jews, who are not of God, has been justified in an effort to oppose "secularism," a contention that is preposterous as it is the very forces of Judeo-Masonry that have resulted in the anti-Incarnational, religiously indifferentist civil state of modernity that has been a vessel out which has flowed every poison of naturalism imaginable.

Pope Pius IX noted this in an epilogue following condemned propositions seventy-nine and eighty in The Syllabus of Errors, December 8, 1864:

79. Moreover, it is false that the civil liberty of every form of worship, and the full power, given to all, of overtly and publicly manifesting any opinions whatsoever and thoughts, conduce more easily to corrupt the morals and minds of the people, and to propagate the pest of indifferentism. -- Allocution "Nunquam fore," Dec. 15, 1856.

80. The Roman Pontiff can, and ought to, reconcile himself, and come to terms with progress, liberalism and modern civilization.- -Allocution "Jamdudum cernimus," March 18, 1861.

The faith teaches us and human reason demonstrates that a double order of things exists, and that we must therefore distinguish between the two earthly powers, the one of natural origin which provides for secular affairs and the tranquillity of human society, the other of supernatural origin, which presides over the City of God, that is to say the Church of Christ, which has been divinely instituted for the sake of souls and of eternal salvation.... The duties of this twofold power are most wisely ordered in such a way that to God is given what is God's (Matt. 22:21), and because of God to Caesar what is Caesar's, who is great because he is smaller than heaven. Certainly the Church has never disobeyed this divine command, the Church which always and everywhere instructs the faithful to show the respect which they should inviolably have for the supreme authority and its secular rights....

Venerable Brethren, you see clearly enough how sad and full of perils is the condition of Catholics in the regions of Europe which We have mentioned. Nor are things any better or circumstances calmer in America, where some regions are so hostile to Catholics that their governments seem to deny by their actions the Catholic faith they claim to profess. In fact, there, for the last few years, a ferocious war on the Church, its institutions and the rights of the Apostolic See has been raging.... Venerable Brothers, it is surprising that in our time such a great war is being waged against the Catholic Church. But anyone who knows the nature, desires and intentions of the sects, whether they be called masonic or bear another name, and compares them with the nature the systems and the vastness of the obstacles by which the Church has been assailed almost everywhere, cannot doubt that the present misfortune must mainly be imputed to the frauds and machinations of these sects. It is from them that the synagogue of Satan, which gathers its troops against the Church of Christ, takes its strength. In the past Our predecessors, vigilant even from the beginning in Israel, had already denounced them to the kings and the nations, and had condemned them time and time again, and even We have not failed in this duty. If those who would have been able to avert such a deadly scourge had only had more faith in the supreme Pastors of the Church! But this scourge, winding through sinuous caverns, . . . deceiving many with astute frauds, finally has arrived at the point where it comes forth impetuously from its hiding places and triumphs as a powerful master. Since the throng of its propagandists has grown enormously, these wicked groups think that they have already become masters of the world and that they have almost reached their pre-established goal. Having sometimes obtained what they desired, and that is power, in several countries, they boldly turn the help of powers and authorities which they have secured to trying to submit the Church of God to the most cruel servitude, to undermine the foundations on which it rests, to contaminate its splendid qualities; and, moreover, to strike it with frequent blows, to shake it, to overthrow it, and, if possible, to make it disappear completely from the earth. Things being thus, Venerable Brothers, make every effort to defend the faithful which are entrusted to you against the insidious contagion of these sects and to save from perdition those who unfortunately have inscribed themselves in such sects. Make known and attack those who, whether suffering from, or planning, deception, are not afraid to affirm that these shady congregations aim only at the profit of society, at progress and mutual benefit. Explain to them often and impress deeply on their souls the Papal constitutions on this subject and teach, them that the masonic associations are anathematized by them not only in Europe but also in America and wherever they may be in the whole world.


Anyone who claims that it is an act of "presumption" to conclude that men who have propagandized in behalf of the very Judeo-Masonic principles condemned by Pope Pius IX in The Syllabus of Errors are not members of the Catholic Church is playing fast and loose with the truth as such men do not have the favor of God whatsoever. To assert otherwise is to make a mockery of God and His Divine Revelation and to reduce the authentic, immutable teaching of the Catholic Church to be a chain of time-conditioned statements that need to be "understood" in light of the "changing" circumstances of the times, a belief that itself has been condemned solemnly by the authority of Holy Mother Church repeatedly. God will not be mocked. Men who propagandize in behalf of the principles of Modernity as they make appeals to a philosophically absurd and dogmatically condemned "hermeneutic of continuity and discontinuity" cannot be members of the Catholic Church, a sine qua non for holding office with her ranks legitimately.

There have been courageous souls in the past century who have responded to Pope Pius IX's plea to defend the faith "against the insidious contagion" of the false sects of Judeo-Masonry that have striven with great zeal to convince Catholics that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ has no social rights whatsoever and that the best condition of the civil government is one that gives recognition to none while permitting each to flower as it will without hindrance. One of these courageous souls was, of course, the late Father Denis Fahey, who reminded us that Talmudic Judaism means to eradicate all public mention of Christ the King from social discourse, which is why naturalist buffoons such as Glenn Beck are so useful to the adherents of the Talmud as they preach a form of political ecumenism that is absolutely and totally identical to that of the lords of conciliarism who have such a desire to be loved by the Jews.

Father Fahey wrote the following in The Kingship of Christ and the Conversion of the Jewish Nation:

As I was not able to bring out this book when it was originally written, it has been laid aside for years. In the meantime, the need for setting forth the full doctrine of the Kingship of Christ has been forcibly brought home to me by the confusion created in minds owing to the use of the term “Anti-Semitism.” The Hitlerite naturalistic or anti-supernatural régime in Germany gave to the world the odious spectacle of a display of Anti-Semitism, that is, of hatred of the Jewish Nation. Yet all the propaganda about that display of Anti-Semitism should not have made Catholics forget the existence of age-long Jewish Naturalism or Anti-Supernaturalism. Forgetfulness of the disorder of Jewish Naturalistic opposition to Christ the King is keeping Catholics blind to the danger that is arising from the clever extension of the term “Anti-Semitism,” with all its war-connotation in the minds of the unthinking, to include any form of opposition to the Jewish Nation’s naturalistic aims. For the leaders of the Jewish Nation, to stand for the rights of Christ the King is logically to be “anti-Semitic.”

In March, 1917, Pope Benedict XV wrote to the Archbishop of Tours: “In the midst of the present upheavals, it is important to repeat to men that by her divine institution the Catholic Church is the only ark of salvation for the human race . . . . Accordingly, it is more seasonable than ever to teach . . . that the truth which liberates, not only individuals, but societies, is supernatural truth in all its fulness and in all its purity, without attenuation, diminution or compromise: in a word, exactly as Our Lord Jesus Christ delivered it to the world.” These sublime words of the Vicar of Christ have nerved me to do all in my power to set forth the opposition of every form of Naturalism, including Jewish Naturalism, to the supernatural Reign of Christ the King. In addition, for over twenty years I have been offering the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass every year, on the Feasts of the Resurrection, Corpus Christi, SS. Peter and Paul and the Assumption of Our Blessed Mother, for the acceptance by the Jewish Nation of the Divine Plan for order. Thus I have been striving to follow the example of our Divine Master. Blessed Pius X insists that “though Jesus was kind to those who had gone astray, and to sinners, He did not respect their erroneous convictions, however sincere they appeared to be.”the need of combining firmness in the proclamation of the integral truth with loving charity towards those in error is insisted on, even more emphatically, by Pope Pius XI: “Comprehending and merciful charity towards the erring,” he writes, “and even towards the contemptuous, does not mean and can not mean that you renounce in any way the proclaiming of, the insisting on, and the courageous defence of the truth and its free and unhindered application to the realities about you. The first and obvious duty the priest owes to the world about him is service to the truth, the whole truth, the unmasking and refutation of error in whatever form or disguise it conceals itself.”

A day will come when the Jewish Nation will cease to oppose order and will turn in sorrow and repentance to Him Whom they rejected before Pilate. That will be a glorious triumph for the Immaculate Heart of Our Blessed Mother. Until that day dawns, however, their naturalistic opposition to the True Supernatural Order of the world must be exposed and combated. (Father Denis Fahey, Foreword, The Kingship of Christ and the Conversion of the Jewish Nation.)


This is our duty as Catholics. We are not to support the lords of conciliarism who want to be loved by the Jews, who are of this world and are thus not of God. We are not to support the witting or unwitting dupes of naturalism in the blathering world of talk radio and cable television. We are to stand for the rights of Christ the King openly and unapologetically without fear of the consequences as we pray very fervently for the conversion of those who adhere to the Talmud and as we bear ourselves kindly toward those of their number whose God's Holy Providence places in our paths, providing them with truly blessed Green Scapulars as we pray "Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death" for each of them by name without fail every day. God wills the good of all men, the ultimate expression of which is the salvation of their immortal souls as members of the Catholic Church. It is not act of true Charity to reaffirm one in a false religion by acts of omission or commission. Indeed, it is a dereliction of our duties as Catholics not to perform the Spiritual Works of Mercy for those who are in the grip of the devil evil though they may not realize it themselves.

Do we desire to be loved by the Jews? No, I am not referring at this point to adherents of the Talmud. Not necessarily. I am referring, however, to the desire of fallen creatures to be loved and respected by the world, which is so much in the grip of the influence of the false, diabolical currents of Protestantism and Judeo-Masonry.

Each of us has made our compromises with the spirit of the world, the flesh and the devil. It is hard, humanly speaking, to oppose the world and its false currents all the time as one's relatives and friends and acquaintances and co-workers (and in today's crazy world where many Catholics spend most of their waking hours in chat rooms where complete strangers can give one much merit by castigating you without ever having spoken to you beforehand) denounce one for being "too strict" or "unrealistic" in insisting upon firm standards of modesty (see Revolutions Have Consequences, part two) refusing to accept most motion pictures (I will have a comment about Cristiada, which is about the Cristeros of Mexico, upon its release as the trailer for it, which appearing very good, may not tell us the whole story at this point) or the diabolical horror that is "rock music" or the naturalistic farce that is American electoral politics and public policy-making. Fine. Let them say what they want. Who cares? One of the ways by which we can make reparation to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary for our desire to be loved and respected and honored by a world that is in the grip of Judeo-Masonry is to accept the humiliations that come our way with joy and gratitude as coming from the loving hand of God Himself.

Remember, the Pharisees of Our Lord's day did not act on their own. Our own sins, having transcended time, played a large role in motivating them to act as they did in hating the very One Who had created them and was about to redeem them so that they could be sanctified as members of His Catholic Church. We play the part of those very same Pharisees whenever we turn away from Our Lord and His true Church by means of sinful thoughts, words, desires and deeds. We play the part of the adherents of the Talmud today when we refuse to speak as Catholics in public life and when we plunge headlong in the traps of naturalism posed by the devil as we spend time listening to the babbling inanities of naturalists rather than praying more Rosaries as Our Lady requested of Jacinta and Francisco Marto and Lucia dos Santos ninety-four years ago now.

Dom Prosper Gueranger, O.S.B., emphasized this point in his reflection on the Feast of the Seven Dolors of Our Lady in Passion Week:

How many there are, who once drank at the vein of living waters, and afterwards turned away to seek to quench their thirst in the muddy waters of the world, which can only make them thirst the more! Let them tremble at the punishment that came upon the Jews; for, unless they return to the Lord their God, they must fall into those devouring and eternal flames, where even a drop of water is refused. Jesus, the by mouth of His prophet, tells the Jews that the day of affliction shall overtake them; and when, later on, He comes to them Himself, He forewarns them, that the tribulation which is to fall on Jerusalem, in punishment for her deicide, shall be so great that such hath not been from the beginning of the world until now, neither shall be.(2)-{St. Matt. xxiv. 21} But if God so rigorously avenged the Blood of His Son against a city that was so long a place of the habitation of His glory, and against a people that He had preferred to all others, will He spare the sinner who, in spite of the Church's entreaties, continues obstinate in his evil ways? Jerusalem had filled up the measure of her iniquities; we, also have a measure of sin, beyond which the justice of God will not permit us to go. Let us sin no more: let us fill up that other measure, the measure of good works. Let us pray for those sinners who are to pass these days of grace without being converted; let us pray that this divine Blood, which is to be so generously given to them, but which they are about again to trample upon, may again spare them. (Reflections for the Fifth Friday of Lent)


As Our Lord told Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque, it is the sins of Catholics that grieve His Most Sacred Heart as much as did the rejection of His own people during His Passion and Death as we, the members of His Catholic Church, have turned away so frequently from the supernatural helps that He gives us through the loving hands of His Most Blessed Mother, she who is the Mediatrix of All Graces:


Consider that it was no less afflicting and sad for Jesus Christ to see the ingratitude of the majority of the faithful, who would have only coldness and indifference for Him in the Sacrament of His love. He saw the little esteem, nay, even the contempt with which they would treat this greatest proof of His love. He saw that no matter what He might do to be loved by the faithful, even dwelling always amongst them in the Blessed Eucharist, neither this excess of His love, nor His benefits, nor His very presence would be capable of making the greater part of them love Him or would prevent them from forgetting Him. he saw that those churches in which He was to be sacramentally present would be left for most of the time without adorers. He saw what little reverence, nay, what disrespect would be shown in His presence. He saw clearly how the greater part of His followers, who spend long hours in vain amusement and useless visits and complete idleness, would rarely find a quarter of an hour to spend before Him in the Blessed Sacrament. He knew how many others would visit Him only under compulsion and without either devotion or reverence. And finally, He saw the very small number who would eagerly visit Him and devoutly adore Him. He saw clearly that the greater number take no more notice of Him than if He were not really present in the Blessed Sacrament or than if He were a person of no consequence.

The harsh treatment which He received from the Jews, Gentiles and heretics was indeed very painful to Him, but they were His open enemies. But could we ever thought it possible that those who recognize His benefits, that those who make profession of being faithful to Him, that His own children should not only be insensible to His benefits and in no way touched with compassion at the sight of the grief caused by such contempt, but that they should treat Him with contempt by their irreverences and sacrileges? Our Saviour might well say: "If pagans and Turks and infidels had treated Me so, I might have endured it." "for if my enemy had reviled me, I would verily have borne it". (Ps. 54:13), but that Christians, Catholics whom I have not only redeemed, but have fed and nourished with my Body and Blood, should have nothing but contempt for Me, that they should treat Me with ingratitude, is too much. "But thou a man of one mind, my guide and my familiar: who didst take sweetmeats together with me! (Ps. 54: 14-15)

What must be the sentiments of this most generous and tender Heart of Jesus which has so loved men, and which finds in the hearts of those men only coldness and contempt? "I am become a reproach among my enemies." (Ps. 30: 12). If after exposing Myself to the contempt and hatred of My enemies in the midst of the outrages which I suffer, I could at least find a large number of faithful friends who would console Me! But it is quite the contrary: "They that saw me without fled from me." (Ps. 30:12) The greater number, seeing that I have disguised Myself under the feeble appearance of bread in order to have the pleasure of dwelling among men, abandon Me and forget Me as a person who has no place in their hearts, "I am forgotten as one dead from the heart." (Ps. 30:13)  (Father John Croiset, The Devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, republished by TAN Books and Publishers.)


If we are faithful to the revelations of the Most Sacred Heart given by Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to such mystics as Saint Gertrude the Great and Saint John Eudes and to Saint Margaret Mary Alacoque, then we can be confident that these great saints will intercede for us from Heaven so that we can imitate their complete self-surrender to the Sacred Heart of Jesus as we, who have been given the privilege to live after Our Lord sent His Most Blessed Mother to the Cova da Iria in Fatima, Portugal, to establish devotion her Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart, attempt to lead all souls, including adherents of the Talmud, to the font of Divine Mercy through the Immaculate Heart of Mary out of which It was formed and to which It is perfected united.

We are loved by the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. As clients of the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, out which that Heart of all hearts was formed, may it be the singular longing of our own hearts to be content that this all-encompassing, matchless love of Love Incarnate rather than compromise on any point of the Holy Faith at any time for any reason, no less to do so to be loved by the Jews, that is to be part of a world that is in the grip of the devil.

May these words of Pope Leo the Great, whose feast we celebrate today, inspire us to oppose conciliarism's false accommodation to the spirit of Modernity and to the "goodness" of false religions lest we condemn ourselves by refusing to do so with holy fervor:

But it is vain for them to adopt the name of catholic, as they do not oppose these blasphemies: they must believe them, if they can listen so patiently to such words. (Pope Saint Leo the Great, Epistle XIV, To Anastasius, Bishop of Thessalonica, St. Leo the Great | Letters 1-59 )
