Your greatest evil, the man who resides in the Apostolic Palace, Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, has lots and lots of accomplices. They are located in local chanceries. Their job is to advance the conciliar revolution of which our greatest evil alive today was from its outset a chief architect and principal ideologue and remains yet today its firmest advocate and evangelist.
While it is true that some of the greatest evil's accomplices desire to push the doctrinal and liturgical revolutions of conciliarism at a faster pace than he believes is prudent, they continue to have his full support as he shares their desires entirely, believing only that the conciliar revolution must evolve at a slower pace as the blitzkrieg that occurred after the "Second" Vatican Council engendered opposition that, he believes, might not have developed if the changes had been less perceptible and thus seen as less threatening.
All of this has permitted the anti-Incarnational revolutions of Modernity, with which the lords of conciliarism have made their "official reconciliation," to advance without any kind of real, legitimate or credible check whatsoever, especially when one keeps in mind that the conciliar liturgical rites are sacramentally and barren, thus permitting an vast exodus of Catholics into the midst of the "world" to which the "doors were opened wide" by the jolly old Sillonist and Modernist by the name Angelo Roncalli/John XXIII. It is no accident at all that the social and political revolutions of the 1960s coincided with the doctrinal and liturgical revolutions of conciliarism. These two revolutions have had but one goal: the celebration of "man" over all else under the umbrella of a One World Ecumenical Church. Behold the wretched results.
Snuffing Out Resistance by "Pacifying Spirits"
As there wast some lingering "resistance" to the conciliar revolutions within the conciliar structures, Ratzinger/Benedict decided at the very beginning of his false "pontificate" on April 18, 2005, to "pacify the spirits" of traditionally-minded Catholics in the Motu communities and to entice Bishop Bernard Fellay of the Society of Saint Pius X to enter into the world of "pacified spirits" by presenting what appears to many to be a more "reasonable" and "prudent" face of conciliarism even though, as demonstrated in What Lines Are You Reading Between, Bishop Fellay?, he has just as persistent and outrageous in the offenses that he has given to the Most Blessed Trinity and in the harm that he has done to souls as was his predecessor, Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II. The only "difference," if one can use this phrase, is that Ratzinger/Benedict has whispered "sweet nothings" into the ear of traditionally-minded Catholics attached to the conciliar structures while he has sought to boil them alive by accepting on a more "gradual" basis the exact revolutionary agenda that many of them or their parents before them rejected fifty years previously.
The conciliar revolution has, of course, proceeded apace, justified by loads of conciliar "bishops" by invoking their "pope's" hermeneutic of continuity, which is nothing other than a repackaging of the same condemned Modernist proposition of "evolution of dogma" that was trafficked under the slogan of "living tradition" by Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II. Following the lead of their "pope," the conciliar "bishops" have promoted the entirety of the conciliar agenda as they have paid their own esteem to the symbols of false religions and have entered temples of false worship, engaging in all manner of syncretist activities over the decades, and, of course, as they offend God daily by means of their own false liturgical rites that as just as offensive to the true God of Divine Revelation as any of the Protestant or Talmudic or Mohammedan services in which they have participated.
This is why "complaints" to "Rome" about "bad 'bishops'" is laughable, something that I had to learn all for myself after over three decades of letter writing and visits to various dicasteries up and down the Via della Conciliazione and in the Palazzo Ufficio just outside of Bernini Columns and in the Vatican's extra-territorial offices in the Trastevere district of Rome. The problem is not with one's local "bishop" but with the conciliar "popes" who appointed them.
Local Field Marshals in Chancery Offices Only Carry Out Their Marching Orders from Occupied Rome
After all, how can one get angry with a local conciliar "bishop" who has refused to excommunicate pro-abortion, pro-perversity Catholics who hold positions, whether elected or appointed, in the civil government when the false "pontiff" extends his congratulations to the pro-abortion, pro-perversity President of the United States of America, Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro, and who holds a purely personal visit with the pro-abortion, pro-perversity Catholic Vice President of the United States of America, Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr.?
How can one get angry with a local conciliar "bishop" who supported ObamaCare as a matter of principle when "universal health care" is one of the cornerstones of the "social teaching," such as it is, of the conciliar "popes"?
How can one get angry with a local conciliar "bishop" who believes that those who have entered this country illegally are entitled to special "rights" (something that is far different from treating those here with dignity and compassion, points I noted in detail in Good Catholic Common Sense Must Prevail, part 1 and Good Catholic Common Sense Must Prevail, part 2), when their "pope" believes that the unrestricted flow of people from one country to another without legal checks is a "human right" and that those who have entered countries illegally qualify automatically for all manner of benefits paid for by native-born an naturalized citizens of those countries (see To the Apostate "Bishops" of the United States of America, Regions XIV-XV and the
Eastern Rite, on their ad Limina visit
18 May 2012.)
Recruiting New Troops for the Conciliar Revolution is the Entire Goal of the "New Evangelization"
This is not an insubstantial point. Permit me to elaborate on this not insubstantial point as the recruitment of those who have entered the United States of America illegally (as opposed to those who may have overstayed their visas and never rectified their situations) as a "special class" of citizens with "human rights" that include, among others, access to universal heath care and other social benefits and, at least in some instances, access to the voting booth (see Alinsky's Sheen), which is one of the principal reasons why voter identification laws that have been enacted by various states hav been opposed with such vigor and denounced with demagogic fury by "the left," is an essential means by which the conciliar revolutionaries believe that they can win loyalists in the advancement of the conciliar agenda while at the same time claiming to be champions of "human rights" by supporting pro-abortion politicians who ooze with "care" for those who constitute part of this special class of citizens.
The caesars of Modernity in the United States of America, for example, were supported and enabled at almost every turn by many, although not all, of our true bishops in the past, a "tradition," if one can all it that, that has been continued by the apostates of conciliarism who have engaged in the ultimate "Occupy" movement known in salvation history, "Occupy Catholic Church," a program that takes its inspiration from its parent "movement, "Occupy Vatican."
As has been the case with all other heresies before it, Americanism, which is an indispensable building block of concilairism, has been the product of the "evolution" of thought that received its principal impetus as a result of the Protestant Revolution that began on October 31, 1517, when Father Martin Luther, O.S.A., posted those ninety-five theses on the door of Castle Door in Wittenberg, Germany.
Just look at how the falsehoods of Protestantism have
"evolved" and mutated over the last nearly five hundred years. From the
time of Luther's revolt against the Divine Plan that God instituted to effect His return to Him through the Catholic Church the present day, there
have arisen over 33,000 different Protestant sects. One cannot keep
track of all of the disparate beliefs that are held by these false sects, many
of which do pitched battle with each other, no less the true Faith, on a
One can also look at how the falsehoods of
conciliarism have "evolved" and mutated over the last fifty years.
Formerly Catholic parishes in the control of the counterfeit church of
conciliarism are a conglomeration of different "mission statements,"
some of which state quite frankly that those of perverse "orientations"
are "important" members of their "faith communities" as the "journey" of
"discovery" unfolds in parish life.
Offerings of the Protestant and
Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical service can vary widely--even by the same
presbyter--from one time to another even in the same parish, no less
from parish to parish. (Believe me, I know. I experienced it for far,
far too long, and those experiences became an integral part of the
analysis of the Novus Ordo that I provided in G.I.R.M. Warfare.)
It is not necessary in most parishes in the control of the counterfeit
church of conciliarism for those who worship there to be of like point
on points of doctrine, which is why Catholics in public life who support
the chemical and surgical assassination of innocent preborn children in
their mothers' wombs remain in perfectly good standing in these
parishes (and not infrequently serve as "lectors" and "extraordinary
ministers of the Eucharist").
Americanism Worked in the Past to Americanize Catholic Immigrants In Order to De-Catholicize Them, and It is Working Yet Again
Here is where the dialectical mutation of the
falsehoods of Modernity and Modernism intersect in the lives of ordinary
Catholics, many of whom believe that they can indeed call themselves
members of the Church in good standing while supporting one abject evil
after another or while believing that there is something short of
Catholicism that can serve as the basis of personal and social order.
Thus it is, you see, that the falsehoods of the condemned heresy of
Americanism have played an essential role in helping Catholics all
across the ecclesiastical divide accept the false, naturalistic,
religiously indifferentist and semi-Pelagian principles of Modernity
that are so responsible for the social chaos that is all around us.
Like all other falsehoods, Americanism has its own
"dialectic," if you will, as a result of its numerous false premises
that most Catholics, including many of those who assist at Masses
offered by true bishops and true priests who make no concessions to
conciliarism in any way at all, accept without realizing for a single
moment that they are steeped in one set of contradictions after another,
believing that they can be faithful members of the Catholic Church
while adhering, perhaps inchoately, to beliefs that are inimical to the
Sacred Rights of Christ the King and thus to the common temporal good of
nations as that good must be pursued in light of man's Last End.
Let me try, once again, to enumerate the falsehoods
of Americanism and to explain how they have mutated in the lives of
ordinary Catholics all across the ecclesiastical divide, making
advertence, at least in part, to material that I wrote thirteen months
ago now, providing a bit of original elaboration in the context of this
Americanism is the exaltation of the spirit of
individual human abilities to "build" the "better world" without a
complete and humble submission to everything contained in the Deposit of
Faith that the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity made Man in His
Most Blessed Mother's Virginal and Immaculate Womb by the power of the
God the Holy Ghost, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, entrusted
exclusively to the Catholic Church that He Himself created upon the
Rock of Peter, the Pope, for Its eternal safekeeping and infallible
explication. It is thus the exaltation of religious indifferentism (the
belief that it doesn't matter what religion one belongs to, if any
religion at all, as long as one is a "good" person) over the necessity
of belief in the one and only true Faith, Catholicism, as the only means
of personal salvation and the only means of social order.
To wit, both "liberal" and "conservative" Catholics
in the United States of America believe in the false, naturalistic
premises of the American founding, that is, that is possible for men of
divergent religious beliefs--or of no religious beliefs at all--to work
together as 'brothers" for the common temporal good without regard for
man's Last End, the possession of the Beatific Vision for all eternity.
Those who subscribe to the "leftist' bent of naturalism believe that the
teaching of the Church is of little account in matters of public
policy. Those who subscribe to the "rightist" bent of naturalism
believe, at least for the most part, that it is not necessary to be
openly Catholic when discussing matters of public policy, that
it is "good enough" to speak of "traditional values" in order to work
with Protestants and Jews and others to combat the evils of the day.
Americanism is thus the exaltation of the ability of
human beings to be virtuous on their own without belief in, access to or
cooperation with the Sanctifying Graces that were won by the shedding
of every single drop of the Most Precious Blood of the Divine Redeemer,
Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, and that flow into human
hearts and souls through the loving hands of Our Lady, the Mediatrix of
All Graces. It is thus the exaltation of the spirit of the heresy of
semi-Pelagianism, which asserts that human beings are more or less
self-redemptive as they stir up graces within themselves to accomplish
whatever "they" set their minds to doing.
Americanism is the exaltation of the spirit of
egalitarianism over the truth of the hierarchy that exists in the Order
of Creation and in the Order of Grace, that is, the Order of Redemption,
making it necessary for there to a separation of Church and State in
order that "free men" can choose for themselves how to live. Americanism
is, all of its invocations of a generic "God" notwithstanding, the
exaltation of the deification of man over man's due submission to God
and the authority of His true Church in all that pertains to the good of
souls and to matters of fundamental justice in according with the
binding precepts of His Divine Positive Law and the Natural Law.
Americanism is the exaltation of the spirit of
"civil" and "religious" liberty" over the true sense of liberty that
comes only from the Catholic Faith.
Thus it is that a "dialectic," if you will, was born
with the American founding that has splintered, much like Protestantism
and all other falsehoods, in many different directions, producing
competing political "camps" among Catholics in the United States of
There are Catholics who are committed to the
"leftist" strain of naturalism who see in the tenets of egalitarianism
and statism the means to improve the lot of the poor and the
marginalized, who, we are told, need one "social safety net" program after another to survive, something that suits the caesars and their minions, men and and women whose very continuation in power is contingent on their being a dependent class of citizens who view them and their programs as indispensable to their very survival.
What are witnessing at the present time in the year 2012 insofar as the "left's" championing the cause of illegal immigration as a "human right" is concerned is precisely what occurred in the Nineteenth Century as the Democratic Party embraced Catholic immigrants who came here legally, first from Ireland in the early part of that century and then from southern, central and eastern Europe after the War between the States and the persecutions of Catholics in Germany during Otto von Bismarck's Kulturkampf and in Italy following the overthrow of the Papal States and the active warfare by the anticlerical Masons of the new Kingdom of Italy against the Catholic Church. Such immigrants, although viewed with hostility and suspicion by nativists, who often subjected the "foreigners" to hateful persecutions and mob violence, were embraced by the bosses of the Democratic Party's urban political machines as the means to consolidate support for their candidates.
The Catholic immigrants of the Nineteenth Century, in turn, became grateful to the bosses for providing the means of upward social, economic and even political mobility that made it possible for them to overcome the overt discrimination waged against them by the nativists, many of whom were in the Republican Party. The gratitude and remembrance of what the bosses of the Democratic Party did to assist Catholic immigrants in the Nineteenth Century is why so many of them and their descendants became "loyal' Democrats" who would turn to out to be, at least for the most part, firm defenders of statists such as Thomas Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Lyndon Baines Johnson, William Jefferson Blythe Clinton and, today, Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro. The leaders of the false opposite of the "left" have used illegal immigration as the wedge by which to show their "compassion" by means of the programs that cater to their various needs.
Eager not to lose what they think should be a ready base of voter support, many within in the organized crime family of the false opposite of the naturalist "right" believe that their candidates lost the vote of Spanish-speaking voters this year because of the immigration issue and that such a voter deficit can be overcome by coming to terms with yet another general amnesty along the lines that was granted in 1986 during the presidency of the late Ronald Wilson Reagan. This general amnesty, some in the United States Senate are proposing, would be conditioned somewhat along the lines of an acceptance of the actual fact it would be inhumane to deport entire families while at the same time without penalizing those who have come here legally from other countries, something that is far different than what the conciliar "popes" and his "bishops" have done in making serving as enablers of illegal immigration while giving lip-service, if that, to the Natural Law right of nations to secure their borders.
The belief of many Republicans, however, that doing this, which as I explained in my two-part series from May of 2010 is only just as those who have come here legally should have to be penalized for adhering to the law, would in and of itself align at least some Spanish-speaking voters with their organized crime family of the false opposite of the naturalist "right" because many such voters are said support for "traditional values" overlooks the simple fact that a large percentage of those who have come to the United States of America, whether legally or illegally, in recent decades, have been and will continue to be "Americanized" by the "leftist" strains that they believe are responsible for "caring" for them and for their family members and others from their native countries.
Those among recent immigrants to this country who have not yet made their peace with the chemical and surgical assassination of preborn children and "marriage" for those who are engaged in perverse acts in violation of the Sixth and Ninth Commandments. Such "newer" immigrants to this country will be no different than those who have come here in the past in that they will accept the "American Way" of viewing life, including viewing what they think is the Catholic Faith, and the results will continue to demonstrate themselves socially and electorally as was the case in the past. They thus will come to accept the "American Way" as natural and normal while the Catholics among their number (many Spanish-speaking people who have come here from Latin America have gone over to various Protestant sects) will go the way of the Catholics who came here in the Nineteenth Century by adhering to the political party they believe has been their "friend."
Neither our greatest evil over yonder in the Apostolic Palace or the men who are certainly no less committed to evil in local chancery offices believe that there is one means of order within souls and hence in society, Catholicism. They are full-throated supporters of the "American Way" and the myths of the American founding that have been reviewed so many times on this site as well as by others (see Dr. John C. Rao's Founding Fathers vs. Church Fathers: 666-0). Catholicism as the one and only foundation of personal and social order? Not for those who belong who to the Occupy Vatican movement in Rome or those who belong to the Occupy the Chancery Office movement around the world, including in the United States of America.
Indeed, even the "conservatives" among the conciliar "bishops" reject this fact, believing, as do all other "conservatives," that evils of the day can be retarded by some kind of interdenominational, non-denominational, politically ecumenical, secular, religiously indifferentist and naturalistic means. Such "conservatives" do not believe and, quite indeed, reject the simple fact that there is only only check, albeit far from an absolute guarantor, against the abuse of power by those who hold office in civil
governments. This check is the Social Reign of Christ the King as It is
exercised by the Catholic Church. Neither those Catholics committed to
the "leftist" strain of naturalism or to the "rightist" strain of
naturalism accept this fundamental truth. "Leftists" and "rightists"
have views of the civil state based upon variations of the falsehoods
of the American founding, not upon the Social Teaching of the Catholic
Church. The fact that there are differences between the "leftist" and
"rightist" strains of naturalism amongst Catholics in the United States
of America speaks loudly as to the truth that false premises must
produce divergences and clashes in the minds of those who believe that
they possess the "true" interpretation of those false premises.
It is no wonder, therefore, that Catholics are divided politically. They are divided politically because we have come to accept the belief that such divisions are simply "normal" even though the true Faith is supposed to unite us on First and Last Things, not divide us. As has been noted in my recently concluded video series, matters of moral truth are not on the "table" for discussion or to be put to a vote in a legislature or a voting booth or "decided" by judges or "overruled" by executive fiats.
The True "Counter-Revolution?" Catholicism, Nothing Else
Here is a reminder to those of you who believe that 2016 will be "better" than 2012 while the country continues to descend into the grip of evil under cover of the civil law and in every aspect of popular culture. Such a belief is illusory as most Catholics today have been catechized by falsehoods and thus accept social evils as either "good" in and of themselves or as a regrettably "irreversible" part of social life that we must accept as such while concentrating on material prosperity. Error can never be any kind of foundation of personal and social order.
Well, once again, our true popes have told us that this is so:
. . For there is no true civilization without a moral civilization, and no true moral civilization without the true religion: it is a proven truth, a historical fact. (Pope Saint Pius X, Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910.)
That the State must be separated from the Church is a thesis absolutely false, a most pernicious error. Based, as it is, on the principle that the State must not recognize any
religious cult, it is in the first place guilty of a great injustice to
God; for the Creator of man is also the Founder of human societies, and
preserves their existence as He preserves our own. We owe Him,
therefore, not only a private cult, but a public and social worship to
honor Him. Besides, this thesis is an obvious negation of the
supernatural order. It limits the action of the State to the pursuit of
public prosperity during this life only, which is but the proximate
object of political societies; and it occupies itself in no fashion (on
the plea that this is foreign to it) with their ultimate object which is
man's eternal happiness after this short life shall have run its
course. But as the present order of things is temporary and
subordinated to the conquest of man's supreme and absolute welfare, it
follows that the civil power must not only place no obstacle in the way
of this conquest, but must aid us in effecting it. (Pope Saint Pius X, Vehementer Nos, February 11, 1906.)
God alone is Life. All other beings partake of
life, but are not life. Christ, from all eternity and by His very
nature, is "the Life," just as He is the Truth, because He is God of
God. From Him, as from its most sacred source, all life pervades and
ever will pervade creation. Whatever is, is by Him; whatever lives,
lives by Him. For by the Word "all things were made; and without Him was
made nothing that was made." This is true of the natural life; but, as
We have sufficiently indicated above, we have a much higher and better
life, won for us by Christ's mercy, that is to say, "the life of grace,"
whose happy consummation is "the life of glory," to which all our
thoughts and actions ought to be directed. The whole object of Christian
doctrine and morality is that "we being dead to sin, should live to
justice" (I Peter ii., 24)-that is, to virtue and holiness. In this
consists the moral life, with the certain hope of a happy eternity. This
justice, in order to be advantageous to salvation, is nourished by
Christian faith. "The just man liveth by faith" (Galatians iii., II).
"Without faith it is impossible to please God" (Hebrews xi., 6).
Consequently Jesus Christ, the creator and preserver of faith, also
preserves and nourishes our moral life. This He does chiefly by the
ministry of His Church. To Her, in His wise and merciful counsel, He has
entrusted certain agencies which engender the supernatural life,
protect it, and revive it if it should fail. This generative and
conservative power of the virtues that make for salvation is therefore
lost, whenever morality is dissociated from divine faith. A
system of morality based exclusively on human reason robs man of his
highest dignity and lowers him from the supernatural to the merely
natural life. Not but that man is able by the right use of reason to
know and to obey certain principles of the natural law. But though he
should know them all and keep them inviolate through life-and even this
is impossible without the aid of the grace of our Redeemer-still it is
vain for anyone without faith to promise himself eternal salvation. "If
anyone abide not in Me, he shall be cast forth as a branch, and shall
wither, and they shall gather him up and cast him into the fire, and he
burneth" john xv., 6). "He that believeth not shall be condemned" (Mark
xvi., 16). We have but too much evidence of the value and result of a
morality divorced from divine faith. How is it that, in spite of all the
zeal for the welfare of the masses, nations are in such straits and
even distress, and that the evil is daily on the increase? We are told
that society is quite able to help itself; that it can flourish without
the assistance of Christianity, and attain its end by its own unaided
efforts. Public administrators prefer a purely secular system of
government. All traces of the religion of our forefathers are daily
disappearing from political life and administration. What blindness!
Once the idea of the authority of God as the Judge of right and wrong is
forgotten, law must necessarily lose its primary authority and justice
must perish: and these are the two most powerful and most necessary
bonds of society. Similarly, once the hope and expectation of eternal
happiness is taken away, temporal goods will be greedily sought after.
Every man will strive to secure the largest share for himself. Hence
arise envy, jealousy, hatred. The consequences are conspiracy, anarchy,
nihilism. There is neither peace abroad nor security at home. Public
life is stained with crime. (Pope Leo XIII, Tametsi Futura Prospicientibus, November 1, 1900.)
This, nevertheless, is what they want to do with
human society; they dream of changing its natural and traditional
foundations; they dream of a Future City built on different principles,
and they dare to proclaim these more fruitful and more beneficial than
the principles upon which the present Christian City rests.
No, Venerable Brethren, We must repeat with the
utmost energy in these times of social and intellectual anarchy when
everyone takes it upon himself to teach as a teacher and lawmaker - the
City cannot be built otherwise than as God has built it; society cannot
be setup unless the Church lays the foundations and supervises the work; no, civilization is not something yet to be found, nor is the
New City to be built on hazy notions; it has been in existence and still
is: it is Christian civilization, it is the Catholic City. It has only
to be set up and restored continually against the unremitting attacks of
insane dreamers, rebels and miscreants. omnia instaurare in Christo. (Pope Saint Pius X, Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910.)
The only way to deal with the Antichrists in the world, men and women who have a set of "values," if you will, to which they are absolutely committed without any compromise or exception whatsoever, is to adhere and to profess openly the truths of the Social Reign of Christ the King without fear of the consequences. We are not likely to see "results" in our lifetimes. That does not matter. The only thing that matters is that we persevere in a State of Sanctifying Grace as a member of the Catholic Church until the point of our dying breath while simply planting the seeds for the conversion of conversion of men and their nations to the true Faith, outside of which there is no salvation and without which there can be no true social order.
Conscious of our need to make reparation for our sins as the consecrated slaves of Christ the King through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, may the Rosaries we pray each day to console the good God in this time of apostasy and betrayal help to plant a few seeds for the Triumph of the same Immaculate Heart of Mary when a true pope fulfills her Fatima Peace Plan consecrates Russia, thus ceasing the spread of the errors we see so manifest before us today, with all of the world's bishops to this very heart out of which the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus was formed and with which it beats as one.
May each Rosary we pray help to effect this miracle that the devil fears and for which we must be uncompromising in working to achieve as soldiers in the Army of Christ.
