Watch A False Church Implode Before Your Very Eyes
by Thomas A. Droleskey
Quick! Act now before it's too late. Watch a false church implode before your very eyes.
Nah, I'm not talking about the fratricidal warfare taking place within the Society of Saint Pius X that will be the subject of another short commentary on Saturday, June 2, 2012, Ember Saturday in the Octave of Pentecost.
I am, however, referring to the false church in which Bishop Bernard Fellay, the Superior General of the Society of Saint Pius X has sought to become a "full, active and conscious" participant. That church, the counterfeit church of concilairism, is reeling as a result of inevitable decay that must occur in any ecclesiastical body that dares to corrupt Faith and Worship and whose officials around in almost every corner of the world have sought to cover-up, excuse or minimize the gravity of heinous moral crimes committed by clergymen, both those validly ordained and those who have not been validly ordained, while at the same time engaging in a systematic intimidation of victims and their families.
Numerous articles on this site have covered this worldwide tragedy that has devastated the life of the Holy Faith in countless numbers of souls and that has led some victims to commit suicide (see, among many others, Of Worldwide Scope, Always Evading Root Causes, Swinging Clubs To Protect The Club, Surely He Jests, "Canonizing" A Man Who Protected Moral Derelicts, More Than A Matter of Legality, Audio Presentation: Scandal In a Church of Apostasy.WMA, "Fall Guys" Aren't Usually "Stand-Up Guys", Apologizing to Everyone Save For God Himself, Not Going Down With the Conciliar Ship, Touchy, Touchy, Chastisements Under Which We Must Save Our Souls, part two, Not So "Deplorable" After All, and Future Home of the "Reform of the Reform", Ratzinger's Revolution Unravels, part two, Nearly A Decade After Law Was Broken).
As has been noted so many times before on this little
read and much castigated website, one of the most little discussed
effects of the doctrinal and conciliar revolutions has been the almost
total destruction of the sensus Catholicus within the souls of a
large percentage of Catholics alive today. Having been convinced by the
blitzkrieg of liturgical changes that burst upon them in the 1950s
and 1960s, culminating in that perpetual spawner of sacrileges and
outrages that is the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo service,
that ceaseless change was now an ordinary and expected part of what
they believed to be the Catholic Faith, so many Catholics lost almost
all sense of decency and honor, starting with honor for the Most Blessed
Trinity, as they plunged themselves headlong into attitudes that were
either indifferent of the horror of personal sin. Many of these
Catholics, having had their souls deformed in supposedly Catholic
schools and colleges and universities and institutions of professional
learning (law schools, medical schools, etc.) and from the very pulpits
in the church buildings where stagings of the "new Mass" took place,
began to justify aberrant personal behavior in the name of "human
rights," "diversity," "choice," "freedom," "tolerance," "understanding,"
"compassion" and, among so many others, "conscience."
The loss of this sensus Catholicus, on the part of ordinary Catholics, began with the loss of the sensus fidei (the sense of the Faith) by the leaders of the doctrinal and liturgical
revolutions, each of whom fell from the Faith by adhering to, no less
publicly promoting, propositions that had been condemned by the teaching
authority of the Catholic Church and are thus completely
The revolutionaries of the counterfeit church of
conciliarism understood that the only contact that most Catholics had
with their holy religion was when they went to what they thought was
Holy Mass on Sundays (or, in the un-Catholic world of conciliarism, on
Saturday afternoon or evening to get the Sunday "obligation out of the
way"). It was necessary, therefore, to change the Sacred Liturgy into a
singular vessel of perdition into which could be poured the elements of
doctrinal corruption that would pave the way to the ready acceptance and
embrace of moral corruption as being not in the least offensive to a
"loving" God or in any way harmful to their eternal salvation.
A ready acceptance of even perverse sins against
nature has become commonplace in the lives of so many Catholics, most of
whom do not have the benefit of having true Sacraments are are
thus more ready to embrace the false currents of the world that are at
the foundation of the the false representations made to them by the
conciliar revolutionaries. Need we be reminded that such conciliar
revolutionaries as Rembert George Weakland, (see Weak In Mind, Weakest Yet In Faith and Just A Matter of Forgiveness?) and Roger "Cardinal" Mahony (see The Six Hundred Million Dollar Man and His Friends, Yes, Sir, Master Scribe and Apostasy Is His Field),
and, among so many others Howard Hubbard, whose scoffing at New York
Governor Andrew Cuomo's concubinage and support for chemical and
surgical baby-killing and "marriage" for people of the same gender was
discussed in Memo To Howard Hubbard: Public Scandal Is Never A Private Matter,
have helped to promote the "lavender" agenda in so many ways? It is
such a promotion of the what Mrs. Randy Engel calls the "homosexaulist
collective" that has made it more and more possible for ordinary
Catholics, accustomed to doctrinal and liturgical aberrations as
perfectly consonant with the Holy Faith, to cheer at the "advances"
being made by "society" in behalf of "loving couples."
Propagandizing in behalf of perversity is common
throughout the conciliar structures. Such propagandizing begins even in
Kindergarten with the rot that is explicit classroom instruction in matters
pertaining the Sixth and Ninth Commandments, right through Twelfth
Grade. Religious education programs and theological seminars and
"updating" programs are staffed in many instances by open practitioners
of perversity and/or by those who are "sympathetic" to "gays" in the
name of "compassion" and "tolerance" and "diversity." Countless numbers
of alleged liturgies have been held to "celebrate" the "rainbow agenda,"
including very notoriously at Most Holy Redeemer Church in San
Francisco, California, Saint Francis Xavier Church in the Borough of
Manhattan in the City of New York, New York, and Saint Joan of Arc
Church in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Countless also are the formerly
Catholic colleges that promote this sin that cries out to Heaven for
vengeance, doing so with plays and "readings" and entire courses and by
permitting those who are engaged in unrepentant sins of perversity to
identify themselves publicly and to form clubs and groups and
associations that recruit members.
The very language of the conciliar liturgy, yes, even in the Latin editio typica,
is meant to reflect a "new theology" that discards any kind of emphasis
on the need for outward acts of penance as belonging to a "different
age in the history of the Church:"
The same awareness of the present state of the
world also influenced the use of texts from very ancient tradition. It
seemed that this cherished treasure would not be harmed if some phrases
were changed so that the style of language would be more in accord with
the language of modern theology and would faithfully reflect the actual
state of the Church's discipline. Thus there have been changes
of some expressions bearing on the evaluation and use of the good things
of the earth and of allusions to a particular form of outward penance
belonging to another age in the history of the Church. (Paragraph 15, General Instruction to the Roman Missal, 1997; please see As the Conciliar Fowler Lays More Snares, part two.)
Liturgical art, architecture
and music have been influenced by the lavender agenda in so many
parishes in so many archdioceses and dioceses and religious communities
that are in "full communion" with Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI as to
defy an accurate count. Even "conservative" websites carry news of the
scandalous goings-on in Europe that have continued for decades and seem
to get worse and worse over the course of time. This is only natural, of
course, as that which is founded in a rebellion against Our Blessed
Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ and the binding precepts of the Divine
Positive Law and the Natural Law must degenerate more and more over the
course of time. This is what happened as the revolt led by Martin Luther
resulted in a corruption of morals among his own "evangelicals" that
shocked him but which he could see or accept as having been caused by
leading them out of the true Church and the infallible teaching
and sacramental helps that she, Holy Mother Church, gave them to
overcome their sins and to grow in the pursuit of personal sanctity.
(See the Appendix below.)
A like manner of events have unfolded at lightning
speed in our own days. Sacramentally-barren liturgical rites designed
and implemented, to one extent or another, by men steeped in theological
error and personal vice have created. Men must fall into the depths of
moral depravity when they are deprived of the fullness of the Sacred
Deposit of Faith and when they are deprived of the Sanctifying Graces
that they need to resist sin and to recognize that no one but no one is
ever free to identify himself, no less doing so proudly, as one is who
is inclined to, if not actually engaged in, the commission of sins that
cry out to Heaven for vengeance.
The truth about the proliferation of scandals in the
counterfeit church of conciliarism is indeed quite simple, something
that I have tried to point out any number of times in various articles
and in an audio presentation last year (Scandal In a Church of Apostasy.WMA).
Parents and victims have been victimized by "bishops"
and "priests" once they brought their legitimate complaints to them,
who they believed to be shepherds of the Catholic Church.
Parents and victims have been victimized and bullied
and browbeaten by attorneys employed by archdioceses and dioceses and
Parents and victims have been victimized and bullied and browbeaten by attorneys employed by insurance companies.
The conciliar "popes" have refused in most, although
not all, instances, to impose ecclesiastical sanctions on "bishops" and
"priests" guilty of immoral activity and/or of treating the sheep with
cruelty and bitter vindictiveness for daring to come forth with their
true stories of suffering beyond all imagining.
A vast network of those engaged in perverse acts
against nature and/or supportive of such acts has been created in the
conciliar hierarchy of the United States of America and elsewhere in the
world. This network exists in seminaries and religious communities and
parishes and diocesan/archdiocesan chancery offices and schools and
universities and colleges. It is all pervasive.
"Bishops" and "priests" and chancery factotums have
lied openly and repeatedly to parents and victims and to the general
public, Catholics and non-Catholics alike.
The latest who turns out to have lied to the press about his efforts to "convince" accused priests and presbyters not to fight the conciliar process of laicization is none other than the happy "cardinal" himself, Timothy Dolan, who has been the conciliar "archbishop" of New York, since April 15, 2009:
Cardinal Timothy M. Dolan of New York authorized payments of as much as $20,000 to sexually
abusive priests as an incentive for them to agree to dismissal from the
priesthood when he was the archbishop of Milwaukee.
Questioned at the time about the news that one particularly notorious
pedophile cleric had been given a “payoff” to leave the priesthood,
Cardinal Dolan, then the archbishop, responded that such an inference
was “false, preposterous and unjust.”
But a document unearthed during bankruptcy proceedings for the
Archdiocese of Milwaukee and made public by victims’ advocates reveals
that the archdiocese did make such payments to multiple accused priests
to encourage them to seek dismissal, thereby allowing the church to
remove them from the payroll.
A spokesman for the archdiocese confirmed on Wednesday that payments of
as much as $20,000 were made to “a handful” of accused priests “as a
motivation” not to contest being defrocked. The process, known as
“laicization,” is a formal church juridical procedure that requires Vatican approval, and can take far longer if the priest objects.
“It was a way to provide an incentive to go the voluntary route and make
it happen quickly, and ultimately cost less,” said Jerry Topczewski,
the spokesman for the archdiocese. “Their cooperation made the process a
lot more expeditious.”
Cardinal Dolan, who is president of the national bishops’ conference and
fast becoming the nation’s most high-profile Roman Catholic cleric, did
not respond to several requests for comment.
A victims advocacy group, the Survivors Network of those Abused by
Priests, sent a letter of protest to the current archbishop of Milwaukee
on Wednesday asking, “In what other occupation, especially one working
with families and operating schools and youth programs, is an employee
given a cash bonus for raping and sexually assaulting children?”
Experts in the Catholic Church’s response to sexual abuse say that
payouts to dismissed priests are not uncommon. When a man becomes a
priest, the church is expected to care for his needs for a lifetime.
The newly revealed document is the minutes of a meeting of the finance
council of the Milwaukee archdiocese from March 7, 2003, which Cardinal
Dolan attended. The archdiocese was facing a flood of potential lawsuits
by people claiming abuse, and the church’s insurance company was
refusing to cover the costs because it said the church had been
negligent. The minutes noted that “unassignable priests” — those
suspected of abuse — were still receiving full salaries.
The minutes say that those at the meeting discussed a proposal to “offer
$20,000 for laicization ($10,000 at the start and $10,000 at the
completion the process).” Instead of salary, they would receive a $1,250
monthly pension benefit, and, until they found another job, health
The first known payment in Milwaukee was to Franklyn Becker, a former
priest with many victims. Cardinal Dolan said in response to a
reporter’s question at the time that the payment was “an act of
charity,” so that Mr. Becker could pay for health insurance.
According to church documents, Mr. Becker was accused of abusing at
least 10 minors, and given a diagnosis of pedophilia in 1983. The church
paid more than $16 million to settle lawsuits involving him and one
The Milwaukee Archdiocese filed for bankruptcy in January 2011, in the face of potential lawsuits by 23 accusers. (Phony Conciliar Cardinal Authorized Payment to Abusers While in Milwaukee.)
Where was the "charity" for the victims and their families, "Cardinal" Dolan? (In case you have forgotten who he is, please review Making Everyone Happy Except God, Whatever You Want, Making Everyone Happy Except God, Extra! Extra! Read All About It! Dolan Finally Speaks The Truth, Ominous Offenders Offending Ominously, Memo To David Axelrod And Other Social Engineers, John Carroll's Caesar, Victims of Compromise, Taking A Figure Of Antichrist At His Worthless Words, Prisoners Of Their Own Apostasy, Timothy Dolan, Meet Timothy Dolan (And Friends), Still Celebrating Half A Century Of Apostasy and Candidate For Man Of The Year?)
Why have you never denounced your morally corrupt predecessor in Milwaukee, Rembert George Weakland, O.S.B.?
Monthly pensions for morally corrupt clergymen?
This is charity?
Alas, this is just par for the course in the counterfeit church of conciliarism, a place where one group of Vatican operatives is seeking to oust Tarcisio "Cardinal" Bertone, the Vatican Secretary of State (see They Got Leakin' And Stuff) and "ultra-progressives" vie with "progressives" for influence in the "proper" interpretation of the "Second" Vatican Council while the false "pontiff," Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, who has played his own well-documented role in covering the crimes of clerical predators and of refusing to punish their "episcopal" patrons,
attempts to "pacify the spirits" of the Society of Saint Pius X.
What's the big deal about the president of the so-called United States Conference of Catholic Bishops being exposed as a liar when the entire fabric of conciliarism is itself a lie from beginning to end?
Credibility is almost always on the side of the victims, not that of those accused of predatory behavior. Victims must suffer shame and humiliation by coming forth with their stories, which is why so many of them refuse to speak out at first, sometimes refusing to so for decades and only then with reluctance and misgivings. Predators seek to claw back at their accusers. Father Urrutigoity accused me of doing the "devil's work" by submitting a special report to the Diocese of Scranton eleven years ago now on several other aspects of his morally corrupt community's operations. Defenders of Daniel Leo Ryan protested vigorously that Stephen Brady and others, including me, were "destroying the Church" by bringing forth such allegations. And on and on and on as almost no one cared for the next victim. It cannot and it must not be that with us at any time in any situation. Only a false "peace" can be purchased by silence on these matters.
To be sure, an examination of our own consciences
will reveal that at least some of us (my hand is raised right now) have
given scandal to others by our public words and actions. The mind does
not want fathom the horrible truth that one or more souls might have
lost the Faith or have been turned away from any real consideration of
converting to It by things we may have said or done to them or in their
presence, which is why we need to pray to Saint Mary Magdalene and Saint
Augustine and Saint Camillus de Lellis, Saint Mary of Egypt and Saint
Margaret of Cortona and even Saint John of God, who had a rough patch in
his life, that our prayers and penances and mortifications and
sacrifices offered to God through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of
Mary will help to win back the souls who we may have scandalized.
It is a terrible, terrible thing to reckon with the
fact that one might be responsible for the loss of a single soul. It is
thus the case that that while decry the insensitivity to the loss of
souls demonstrated by the conciliar "bishops," we must never
lose sight of how we might have demonstrated this insensitivity in our
own lives. The loss of the Faith in a single soul is indeed very much a
matter of the Faith!
Sinners though we may be, we must never surrender to hopelessness or despair. Never. Not for one moment. We must persevere in our own individual lives against the forces of the world, the flesh and the devil as we cling to Our Lady's coattails. And we must come to persevere in the truths of the Holy Faith, realizing the truths of the Holy Faith must defended with
prophetic courage as we trust in the Holy Providence of God.
Then again, why should Catholics know this today? The
Americanist bishops of yore didn't teach it. Neither have their
successors in the counterfeit church of conciliarism, some of whom have
been very busy driving Catholics into the waiting arms of
Protestant sects and their snake-oil salesmen "ministers" who chortle
heartily every time they snatch a baptized Catholic to become a tithing
member of their congregation and participants in the false worship that
they render unto the devil himself even though they do not realize that
this is what it is they are doing.
The conciliar, which is a marriage of
Modernity and Modernism, has imploded to such an extent that those who
have been baptized and confirmed to defend the Faith as soldiers in the
Army of Christ lay down their arms in a surrender of hopelessness at the
first signs of difficulty that might cause them to suffer a little
personal anguish and difficulty. Some well-meaning Catholics have told me things pretty much along the lines of "What? Openly say that Benedict XVI is not the pope? Not me. No, no, no. I'm not going to be criticized by my relatives and friends. No way."
The Cross? That's for the other guy. It's not for me.
Not now. Maybe if "they" do something else that's very terrible at some
time in the future. Not now.
If it's not now, however, it will be never as those
who learn to believe that refraining from a solid witness to the
Catholic truth is offensive in the sight of the Most Blessed Trinity
will always make a virtue out of cowardice no matter how many times they
convince themselves that they are only making a "mental reservation." The moral corruption of the conciliar hierarchy is just a manifestation of its doctrinal and liturgical corruption.
Saint Anthony Mary Claret explained that each of us must have a holy
indifference to our own personal suffering as we accept whatever
situation that befalls us as occurring within the Providence of God, Who
means to bring good out of each of the circumstances that occur,
whether in our own lives or in the larger life of the world:
God's Providence demands that I have a heart of holy indifference--As
it is arduous and difficult to gain one's last End without complete and
holy indifference, it is likewise so much the easier to gain this End
with it. To thoroughly convince yourself of this, weigh this truth:
(1) God is Infinite Wisdom and Knowledge. He knows
and understands the means that lead with all security to the attainment
of your last End. There are all kinds of means serviceable for the
gaining of your last End--health and sickness, honor and dishonor, an
honored calling to a lowly occupation--provided they are put to good
Now if you know the answer, tell me: What will lead
you most securely to your last End? Is it the enjoyment of robust
health, or is it a sickly condition? Is it a state of being honored and
loved, or one of being insulted and hated? Is it holding a high post, or
having a humble employment? This something that you do not know, nor do
I, nor does anybody else in the world. All those things are mysteries
that no perception can penetrate except only the perception of Him Who
(2) God is Infinite Love, Who always arranged for
souls the surest means for reaching their last End--surest, provided
they always keep themselves in holy indifference and proper balance. God
deals with souls as a mother who fondly loves her tender child.
As a true mother is incapable of giving poison to
her beloved child, even more so is God incapable of providing anything
harmful for a soul that surrenders itself to Him with complete
indifference. O my soul, become for once fully convinced that if God
visits you with illness, that this is the surest way for leading you to
reach your last End; when He allows you to be despised and belittled,
when He placed you in darkness, in desolation, in trials, that is the
surest way for you to advance to your last End.
3) God is Infinite Power,
and He helps infallibly to its last End the soul constant in holy
indifference and proper balance. And who will be so bold and so daring
that he can put an obstacle before God? And what will be the result? A
heap of misfortune for which you cannot weep enough. Reflect well on
this and what follows.
It is quite certain that such a soul must of necessity suffer in
this world more than another soul. You greatly deceive yourself, my
soul, if you imagine that you can escape the troubles which God's Love
holds in store for you as means to your last End. You will never be able
to do so. You will suffer, and you will necessarily have to suffer the
pains and ailments, the contempt and mistreatments which from eternity
God has assigned for you to suffer.
"You will either fulfill what God wants, or you will suffer what you do not want." Saint Augustine.
If you maintain an indifferent heart and bear
everything with patience, you will give God pleasure and He will
fortify you with an inflow of His graces. He will give you a continual
peace and calm and will make the way of the cross something easy and
sweet for you. If you neglect this holy indifference and bear troubles
impatiently, you will displease God and He will deny you all His
strengthening, supporting help and every kind of peace and consolation,
letting you fall under the weight of your cross.
If tis very certain that for all eternity you will
lose that high degree of glory unless you adopt the means God has
appointed. If your heart is not indifferent and you do not use such
means, adopting them willingly, you will weary yourself in vain and will
lost your last End. It is certain that you are in danger of not gaining
your eternal salvation, not even a lower grade of glory.
A soul that has not this holy indifference, falls out
of (moral) necessity into many grave temptations. In such
circumstances, who is not drawn downward by anger, by resentment, by
faintheartedness and melancholy, by pride and fear of contempt? And who
is not moved by impulsiveness and self-will, b interior upsets and
disorder, and by the rebellion of uncontrolled passions?
Ah, to overcome these problems requires a particular
help of God. Now will He give it to a soul unwilling to submit to His
plans, to a soul who, full of anger, rejects the means which God has
provided, a soul unwilling to serve except in its own way, unwilling to
acknowledge Him as Master and Lord, and who insolently resists God's
designs? Let a man place his hopes in the One Whom he can trust, for the
struggle is quite dangerous. (Saint Anthony Mary Claret, The Golden Key
to Heaven, Immaculate Heart Publications, pp. 36-39.)
In other words, God has known from all eternity that we would be living in this time of apostasy and betrayal.
Each of us is a sinner. We must suffer for
our sins. There is no escape from this suffering, and living in this
particular time of apostasy and betrayal is part of the plan in the
economy of God's salvation to effect effect our own salvation as we
suffer and suffer well for our sins and those of the whole world. The
graces won for us by Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ on the
wood of the Holy Cross that flow into our hearts and souls through the
loving hands of Our Lady, she who is the Mediatrix of All Graces, are
sufficient this moment. They are sufficient for every moment and every
need. Why do we worry so?
Each of us has an obligation to do our own duty
before God by making reparation for our own many sins that have worsened
the state of the Church Militant on earth and of the world-at-large in
many ways that we may understand fully only in eternity. We must live
more and more penitentially as the consecrated slaves of the Most Sacred
Heart of Jesus through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary,
praying as many Rosaries each day as our state-in-life permits,
especially during this month of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
This era of apostasy and betrayal will pass. The true sensus Catholicus will be restored. Catholics will once again have a true sense of the
horror of personal sin and they will seek voluntarily to make reparation
for their own sins and those of the whole world as the slaves of the
Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary. Men and their nations will
submit themselves to the Social Reign of Christ the King as It must be
exercised by Holy Mother Church.
Yes, there will be the Triumph of the Immaculate
Heart of Mary when her Fatima Message is fulfilled. We may not live to
see this with our own eyes. Moses was given a glimpse of the Promised
Land, but died before entering there. The Apostles and the martyrs of
the first centuries of Holy Mother Church did not live to see the glory
of Christendom that resulted from their fidelity and their
sacrifices. We must not look for "results" in our own lifetimes.
May the Rosaries we pray each day help to bring about the restoration of the Church Militant on earth and of Christendom in the world.
Isn't it time to pray a Rosary now?
