“The lethal wound festering in the very body of the holy church”, is a reference to priestly impurity; a pungent description written by St. Peter Damien († 1072) in his monumental work, “The Book of Gomorrah“.
A reader pointed out that it has been a very long while since we had an update on Pope Francis and the clerical pederasty crisis. As it happens, I had been about to post the following, but noticed that several excellent blogs have bested me, most notably Mr. Atila Guimaraes at Tradition in Action. I hope you’ll read his articles if you have missed them. One article recounted how a notorious priest abuser, Fr. Inzoli, was defrocked under Pope Benedict XVI, but was “mercifully” reinstated by Pope Francis. Of course, the man went on to offend more and now has met with civil sanctions. Isn’t it strange how selective Bergoglian mercy is? Never hampered by rigidity!
And so, belatedly, we offer our post on the progress of “Zero Tolerance” in the Bergoglian Church.
Thank heavens for our good and humble Pope Francis who early on in his ministry as the Vicar of Christ on earth assured us,
“I feel compelled to personally take on all the evil that some priests – quite a few in number, (although) obviously not compared to the number of all priests – to personally ask for forgiveness for the damage they have done for having sexually abused children,” he told members of the International Catholic Child Bureau.
“The church is aware of this … personal, moral damage carried out by men of the church, and we will not take one step backward with regards to how we will deal with this problem, and to the sanctions that must be imposed.
“On the contrary, we have to be even stronger. Because you cannot interfere with children,” (Reuters, April 11, 2014)
Catholics all over the world rejoiced that at last, we had a “zero tolerance pope” as he himself proclaimed on May 26, 2014; although several of us crabby old trads took a more jaundiced view, noting his deep affection for his dear friend Msgr. Ricca.
But then came a disheartening deluge of actions which belied this Pope’s resolute stand against sodomitical clerics. We have posted on Pope Francis’s proclivities for corrupt priests and prelates in numerous articles, see “The Figure of a Woman, Anticipating 2017“, “The Wrath of the Lavender Mafia”, “The Vatican’s Lavender Heel“, and “The Danneels Effect“.
And so, we were aware of the Pope’s favoritism towards priests who were openly supportive of homosexuals in the consecrated life. The list is long, from Ricca, to Dominican Father Timothy Radcliffe (who has compared sodomy to the Blessed Sacrament), to Bishop “Tucho – Heal Me with Your Mouth” Fernandez, here, his friend who helped him write Amoris laetitia. And then there’s Cardinal de Kesel, who is in a class all by himself, but we will deal with him later.
For now, let’s let Anne Barrett Doyle of Bishop Accountability fill us in on the most egregious example of Pope Francis ignoring and allowing priestly sex abuse of deaf children in their care. According to Doyle’s article here, Pope Francis ignored pleas from several deaf persons who had been abused at the Antonio Provolo Institute (for education and care of deaf children) in Verona, Italy in 2014.
The abusers in what has tragically become a modern tradition, were simply transferred to Argentina, where they happily set up shop and proceeded to do what they do best, abuse the bodies and souls of those poor children who are entrusted to them.
From Bishop Accountability:
Argentine authorities arrested this week Father Nicola Corradi, S.M., an Italian priest reported to the Vatican in 2008 or 2009 and again in 2014 by deaf survivors in Verona, Italy. Now 82, Corradi is accused of a range of more recent abuses in Argentina, including forcing hearing-impaired children, ages 10-12, to have oral sex with each other. The alleged crimes occurred at the Antonio Provolo Institute for Deaf Children in the Mendoza province of Argentina.
Authorities charged Corradi, and four other adults, including Rev. Horacio Hugo Corbacho S.M., of molesting eight children at the school. Since the arrest, a total of around 60 children have been identified as possible victims.
In May 2014, an Italian survivors’ group issued a public plea (see 1, 2 and 3) to Pope Francis to bring to justice Corradi and 15 or so other reported child molesters who had worked at Istituto Provolo, a school for deaf children in Verona, Italy. The survivors’ plea to the Pope included the alarming news that Corradi and three other alleged Verona abusers were currently working at the order’s two schools for deaf children in Argentina (one in La Plata and the other in Mendoza).
As Supreme Shepherd, Francis sets the standard, and so the abuse flares again. For those of you who read us regularly, the foregoing comes as no surprise. In Nov., 2015 we wrote about Pope Francis’s promotion of Archbishop de Kesel in “Appallingly Clear“. But since that post was written, Pope Francis has made him Cardinal de Kesel.
Here is a snippet from that article, “Appallingly Clear”:
“There is a need for respect and reverence for people who are homosexual.” – Archbishop de Kesel, just appointed to the see of Brussels by Pope Francis/Danneels.
From time to time, we need to restate the purpose of this blog.
The purpose of Return to Fatima is not to defend the Pope from criticism, it is to uphold the constant teaching of our Lord Jesus Christ, to point out the obvious signs that the Pope and hierarchy have betrayed our trust and betrayed Our Lord Himself, and to recommend to readers the clear true Message of the Mother of God at Fatima, the only message that can turn the tide of filth that is flowing through the Vatican and corrupting the church and the world.
It should be appallingly clear to all that the spiritual chastisement is upon us. Satan is ravishing the Church and befouling her, and God’s justice, so long delayed will be swift and severe beyond all warning or comprehension. No readers, I will not temper my words regarding Pope Francis, this evil man who is now comporting himself within the sanctuary of the church, raising a stench that only the Immaculate Mother of God can dispel.
“And Christ’s wounds remain open because of the sins of priests.” (St. Hildegard von Bingen)
But stay with me just a moment longer. You need to understand another serious problem here.
All the things that were stated above are a matter of public record. And yet, we have organizations, such as the former Blue Army, currently the World Apostolate of Fatima, who continue to deny the true message of Fatima. These organizations assure the faithful that the Consecration of Russia has been done, when it is perfectly clear that the Consecration of Russia has not been done as Our Lady requested. They continue to promote this pope as though he were truly holy, never once uttering the truth about the many, many flagrant instances of Pope Francis supporting priest and Bishop sex abusers and pedophile enablers. These organizations present themselves as telling Catholics the true message of Fatima, but they are misleading people. If the Consecration had been performed as they say, and if the Pope were truly as holy as they assert, would you expect to see the worsening violence throughout the world, the disunity of Catholics, or the filth that is so rampant in the Church now? Do you really think that this the “reward” that Our Lady gives her obedient children? Of course not!
And so, those who are led away by false Fatima organizations within the institutional church simply refuse to see; they are disoriented.
But the spiritual chastisement does not go away. And souls are being destroyed … The WAF could use their powerful media presence to shine a light on these purulent wounds festering in the Church, in the very summit of the Church. They could help people to see the severe spiritual chastisement for what it is, so that all Catholics could use the means Our Lady of the Rosary has given us and hasten the victory of her Immaculate Heart, restoring the Church. But because they do not defend their flock, the crisis worsens and these sins cry out to heaven. How long do you think God will stay His justice?
We have lost so many good men lately, and it seems as though the remainder have lost all conviction, even as the evil gather intensity …
To those still reading, note that your total Consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary is more important now than ever before. Let’s all renew our efforts between now and May 13.
Please consider making the effort to keep First Saturdays of Reparation, to say your Rosary daily with all possible devotion – now that is truly worthy of reverence!
Please spread the true Message of Fatima in so far as you are able. However, do not fault yourself if you are not able, for Our Lord sees our intentions, and He is greatly comforted by our humble and contrite hearts. That is why offering, moment by moment, our daily duties, with a generous spirit of sacrificial love is so blessed right now. Many souls are helped by this!
† Please, pray the Rosary and confound the devil!
† Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of our hearts, Mother of the Church, do thou offer to the Eternal Father the Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ, for the conversion of poor sinners, especially our Pontiff.
† Most Precious Blood of Jesus, save us, save our priests!
† Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us!
† St. Joseph protect us, protect our families, protect our priests!
~ by evensong, for love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ, King.
Vouchsafe that I may praise thee, O Sacred Virgin! Give me strength against thine enemies!
