Thoughts of a dry brain

For some reason, readers have asked for an encore of this old post from 3 years ago. So much has happened since this was posted a few years back. But since you asked, here goes another trip down memory lane…

 

The Never-ending Springtime of Vatican II
The Never-ending Springtime of Vatican II

 

A funny thing happened today. Odd how little things can build up and suddenly, boom! Your life has changed irreversibly in just one small moment. For years now, my husband and I have been sneaking down to Mass at the SSPX Chapel an hour and a half drive from us. In heavy traffic, the drive can take twice as long. I say that we sneak, because most Sundays, we have to settle for a TLM at a Novus Ordo Parish we will call St. Nowhere in a city closer to us. The Latin Mass community at that Church has strong antipathy towards the SSPX and I was shunned for nearly a year after merely mentioning that I support them financially.  The priest at St. Nowhere, we’ll call Father X, told members of the TLM Community that the Bishop does not allow parishioners to attend SSPX Mass and inferred that to do so was grounds for excommunication. Now I did not hear him say that because as luck would have it, I was at SSPX Mass that Sunday.  But the same priest asked me once, why I missed Mass the previous Sunday. I am ashamed to say I did my infamous little, “Oh look, there’s a butterfly!” ditsy old lady thing and slipped away from him.

However, today, that viral video of the candlelight procession by the SSPX community in Kansas was sent to me by a prominent member of our local Latin Mass Society. I responded rather more strongly than I should have and just to be honest about things, I copied it to the St. Nowhere priest. After going that far, I was flush with the exuberance one gets from derring-do, and so I decided to forward my response to a couple other Catholics who attend St. Nowhere’s Latin Mass in case they might like to know of my wickedness. I attached an explanatory note to them as well. Since the cat’s out of the bag,  I may as well let you all in on it, in fact, just shout it from the housetops! Here is a merged version of what I wrote in both emails:

Thank you for the video, Marie (Not her real name). I have been a supporter of SSPX for years now and whenever I am well enough to travel, we make the grueling (for us) trip to (-SSPX Chapel_).

I have heard that Father _X_  has said we may not attend Mass there and also heard that the Bishop does not approve. So have tried to keep silent, but can do so no longer.

The neo-modernists of the Bergoglio/Kasper/Danneels faction are using homosexuals and divorcees not for the good of their souls, not for true mercy for these poor people, but solely to attack Our Lord in His Sacrament of Love. What a horrible hoax to play on poor sinners! Not to show them the way to true repentance and the fulness of grace and everlasting happiness in Heaven, but to further damn them to hell by compounding their mortal sins.

The pawns in all this are the sinners, who are being mislead by the very shepherds who should help them.
What kind of “field hospital of the faith” is P. Francis running? It deliberately infects poor sinners, already suffering mortal wounds, with more fatal disease, while denying them the simple cure!

It seems hypocritical for some who call themselves traditional Catholics to keep acting as though the SSPX is evil. I know them and they are genuinely the Remnant of the Faith that will, by their constant reparations and rosaries bring Our Immaculate Mother’s victorious return and restore the Faith.

At SSPX Chapel, there are prayers before every Mass for Pope Francis, they are respectful and I have personally been excoriated by Father _V_ for being uncharitable about the Pope. I am guilty as charged! Father V  urges us to offer penance and prayers for the pope and the hierarchy, as Our Lady of Fatima requested.

I love the Church and that is why I cannot continue to give tacit approval of what I see happening in this papacy. It is difficult to grasp how in the name of mercy, those living in a persistent state of mortal sin are being welcomed into receiving the Blessed Sacrament, yet I am to be cast out, for simply attending a Society Mass? Amazing.

In this farcical Synod, they are discussing institutionalizing Eucharistic sacrilege. To attempt to excommunicate me for attending a reverent Mass when all this sacrilege and desecration of the Blessed Sacrament is being rammed through, is beyond ludicrous. But we will see how it plays out. Meanwhile, we will go on down to (SSPX Chapel) next Sunday. There, we have Rosary before Mass with prayers for the Pope, a reverent Missa Cantata, followed by an hour of Eucharistic adoration with prayers for the Pope and the Synod. The congregation did their own Eucharistic Rosary procession last Sunday for the Synod. These people are praying and offering penances for the Church in this time of trial, so by all means, they should be excommunicated!

By the way, apropos Father Rosica at the Synod Press briefing, where he mentioned polygamy: If they open up to polygamy in Africa, that will destroy the beautiful, faithful African Church, the most vital and fervent ground of the Faith today, which is giving us saints and martyrs for the glory of God and His Church. It is a terrible blow, all in the name of Kasper’s damnable “mercy”. I won’t be a part of it.

Before long, I will be probably unable to travel to (SSPX Chapel)  for Mass. When that happens, Father will come here to offer Mass. If you know of anyone interested in attending, feel free to give them my contact information.

I will hush now. Thank you,

Well, it is now 1 a.m. and time for Matins, yet am still at the computer getting ready to post this. As I think back on the events of the day, I am having second thoughts. Some of our family still go there to the TLM at St. Nowhere’s and they will have to face the disapproval of Father X and the TLM community. Perhaps it was thoughtless of me. Then I wax indignant again. With all the problems facing faithful Catholics in this dysfunctional Church, why does it fall to me to be the stereotypical bad guy?

Wish I could recall that quote from Orwell, you know, the one about how subversive it is to tell the truth in a sick society? But it is late and I am old, and very tired, and my Church is in ruins.

Oh God come to my assistance, O Lord, make haste to help me.

 

[UPDATE, February 5, 2016: My husband and I are still forbidden to receive Holy Communion at the Diocesan Traditional Latin Mass. Father X has wholeheartedly embraced the new “Mercy Agenda” of Pope Francis. Those who still attend the TLM there never need fear they will hear the intolerant words of Jesus against adultery, for all that is cast aside in favor of the serene theology of Cardinal Kasper and the tender mercies of Pope Francis.]

“In the end, my Immaculate Heart will triumph!”

Queen of the most Holy Rosary, establish the reign of thine Immaculate Heart in my heart, in the Church, and in the world!

St. Joseph, protector of the Church, protect our priests!

Remember, pray the Rosary and confound Satan!

Note: the title refers to a poem by T.S. Eliot

Grace Has Fled

Grace has indeed fled, as it did in the betrayal at Gethsemane, the Judas Hour. St. Peter, ever the man of action, struck Malchus, and in his zeal, would have led the disciples into yet another unsuccessful rebellion which would have ended the Church right at the beginning. But Jesus replaced the ear of the High Priest’s servant in order that the will of the Father might be obeyed. Peter, the first Pope, refused to follow Our Lord’s example of obedience, he fled and denied Our Lord. You see, that unpleasant word, obedience, simply will not vanish! For Jesus leads us to victory by obedience, through martyrdom if necessary as we noted in the conclusion of our last post.

In his prophetic book, “The Vatican”, Father Malachi Martin tells us through his protagonist, Cardinal Lansing:

“Grace is the first fruit of the Spirit (that) Christ sent into the world. If grace has fled, it is because we have made its bearer unwelcome. Now, like John of the Cross, we must work in our very souls to make it welcome again – not as a visitor merely, but as chief resident in this Church. … Most of all, We must pray. And we must do penance. And then pray some more. And do still more penance. … Unless  we do that, then in all our strategies and plans to outwit our enemies we will be just as they are. And if that happens, there will be no reasons any longer to fight them. They will have won, no matter who ends up with the power.”

In his semi-fictional bestseller,  “The Vatican”,  Fr. Martin reveals to us the way that the secret societies behind international banking gained control over the Church and nearly brought her to destruction.  The hero, Father Richard “Rico” Lansing, eventually becomes Cardinal, then in a dramatic turn of events, he is nominated for the papacy. He explains the “Bargain” which allows international freemasonry (described as the “International Assembly”) to control the Vatican finances.

Speaking to the Cardinals in conclave, Cardinal Lansing says,

“Our struggle is and always has been over one thing: power. Not the power of classes. Not ecclesiastical or social or political power. But the very same power St. Paul singled out at the very beginning of Rome’s history. The power of one brilliant fallen Archangel and his hordes. The power of darkness.

“And as that Apostle pointed out, our struggle with that power can be waged only with the weapons given to us by Christ, whose servants we are. Moral power is ours. Spiritual power is ours. That is all. And that is enough.”

Lansing then reviewed the papacies of the past five popes of his time, fictional counterparts of Pius XII, John XXIII, Paul VI, John Paul I and John Paul II. He continued,

“Marking the pontificates of each of those men was one fatal error, the use of their spiritual office to obtain leverage in the political, and diplomatic, and civic, and cultural worlds; and then using that leverage instead of the spiritual power and moral authority that was uniquely theirs.”

“And here, Your Eminences, we are at the root cause of our pain, our struggle, and our own deathly peril: our failure and the failure of our popes, to use the Church’s spiritual power to exercise its moral authority.”

Father Martin, through the character Cardinal Lansing then makes the point that eleven pontiffs were given the Bargain to sign and all did so. “Each of these pontiffs mortgaged the power of Christ’s Church to the power of Mammon.”  …

“This Bargain is about power. … Under the Holy Spirit of Christ, you are here to decide only one thing: on whom that same Spirit should confer that plenitude of divine power which Christ conferred on Peter the Apostle, and has conferred on all of Peter’s successors in this diocese of Rome. Power to forgive. Power to obligate. Power to teach. Power to decide the right and the wrong of all human affairs. Power for the peace of God. Power to war on God’s enemies. Power despite weakness. Power in the absence of holiness.”

“If any one of our popes, if any of us, or those who came before us, had used our power, Christ’s power in us, with half the zeal and dedication as the Assembly had used its power, the entire history of the Church and the world in the twentieth century would have been different. … Once and for all, then, let us refuse to … strike yet another bargain … with the world. A bargain by which we obligate ourselves to make the Church as like as possible to the world around it. … Because in this whole cosmos there can be no bargain, even a temporary one, between God and Mammon, … between God’s Church and God’s enemies.”

Locusts and Horsemen

 

From Lifesite News this morning, we see that there is credible information that it was our humble Pontiff himself who insisted that Msgr. Luigi Capozzi, assistant to Cardinal Cocopalmerio be given the prestigious apartment in which he gave his drug and sex orgies. A little over a year ago, we wrote extensively on this in a series of articles which referred back to Chapter 9 of the Apocalypse and tracing the current plague of infestation to Paul VI. I will not quote the extensive references here but refer you to the links at the end of this article.

For those readers who are interested in placing these most recent scandals in the Bergoglian Vatican within the context of the Apocalypse , I urge you to read the earlier posts, which are linked below. In them you will come to see the sacred revelations unfold and the connections between the Vatican Banking scandals,  the Lavender Mafia and the satanic infestation of the Vatican.

In one article, I wrote,

And now, under Pope Francis, we see the homosexual corruption and the financial corruption nicely tied together in one tidy little pile under the Pope’s dear friend Monsignor Battista Ricca, whom he appointed to the Vatican Bank.

Three Gay blades, making a mess!

 

And now, the latest scandal, for which we have to thank his Eminence Cardinal Cocopalmerio and his secretary,  Msgr. Luigi Capozzi, but ultimately Pope Francis, who promotes and sustains all the corruption.  Although Capozzi was arrested by the Vatican police some  two months ago, when they found him so high on cocaine that he had to be treated at a Vatican clinic, and although the homosexual orgy which he was hosting took place in what was officially space belonging to Cardinal Cocopalmerio, not one statement condemning this disgusting behavior has been made by the Bergoglian Vatican. It is the silence of a rotting corpse. ( . . . )

And today, we see that this pope, who vowed “transparency” and proclaimed his intention to clear up corruption, is continuing his stubborn silence and is actually fostering it by continuing to stand by his corrupt choices. Now that one brave Monsignor has risked his life and his reputation in order to begin to expose the extent of the corruption, we should all expect the inevitable mud-slinging which results from any attack on the perverted narcissists roosting in the Vatican. And even some corrupt prelates, who are themselves complicit in similar tolerance for the Lavender liturgies infesting their own dioceses, will appear to support the reform.

But one of the gravest threats is that proposed by the “useful idiots” (a marxist term of endearment for foolish people who abet their plans) who cry out for the government to clear out the church. That will harm the church further and the result will be that which Paul VI (who should know!) foretold:

“Yes, the smoke of Satan is in the sanctuary. Due to the presence of Satan, Catholics are destined to become an infinitesimally small part of humanity.”

Pope Francis has already taken some measures to protect Church wealth and property as we wrote in two articles in May this year, “Shoring Up the Ruins?” and Shoring Up the Ruins, once more“. From them:

Nota Bene:

A special office has been set aside in the Vatican Bank, Institute for Works of Religion. It begs the question, what does the Vatican expect to happen?

Note that the Guidelines were set up this past February, about the time that the cover was being blown off the Chilean scandal and the Pope himself was becoming inextricably entangled in the scandal. Note also that several close to the pope have become implicated in this scandal or others, for instance, unrepentant Cardinal Errazuriz and Cardinal Maradiaga. Add to this Cocopalmerio’s problems and the homoerotic “artwork” of Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia and you see that there has developed an undeniable stench in this papacy.

The Pope’s  “Testament”, far from being a spiritual testament similar to that of St. Paul as Pope Francis claims,  is a thinly veiled attempt to prevent the seizure of finances and properties in the event of legal judgements against the numerous prelates who are to be convicted. There may be much more scandal coming to light and it appears that the Vatican considers that the Pope himself may not be immune.

It’s fascinating to see how  quickly and decisively the Vatican can act when its finances and properties are threatened. Quite unlike its response when souls are being destroyed.

As St. Hildegard said, Wretches that we are, who shall deliver us?

Readers, I took that last quote from our post on St. Hildegard, “The Figure of a Woman”. In that post, we closed with the explanation:

“The quote above refers to the filth of the Lavender/St. Gallen faction which now occupies the Church. Once the monstrous head is disposed of by Divine intervention, all the corruption will be revealed. Those who survive, that is, the few faithful remaining at that time, will be awestruck at the extent of the evil when at last the entire truth becomes known. But even though it will be “late”, the Immaculate Mother of God will prevail and the Church will be restored. Bergoglio, Kasper, Danneels, all will go the way of past evils; what is Good, True, and Beautiful shall prevail.”

If you look a bit closer, to what I have written above, you will note several things:

Unless the faithful are led by the light and grace of God, through the Immaculata, we will miss this precious opportunity to cleanse the Church. For the evil can not be driven out by earthly wisdom, worldly tactics, which ignore God, for that mistaken approach is what led the popes into the mess they are in. We have written extensively about the corruption of the Vatican through its finances, that is, ignoring the spiritual power given to it by Christ, the true Head of the Church and instead relying on political and financial arrangements to advance its hegemony through worldly means.

The second thing is very subtle and requires a further post to elucidate, but as the faithful ignore the means given by God to cleanse the Church, that is recourse to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and her Message of Fatima, God in His providence will step in and cleanse the Church in His time honored way, as we related in the “Sixth Trumpet Update 2018”. 

In that post, we wrote:

While the material chastisement of the horsemen is looming on the near horizon, the pope of our chastisement is pursuing the demolition of the faith and the nearly total destruction of the channels of sanctifying grace with brutal intensity.

Both the material and the spiritual chastisements will continue apace until mankind repents, however few remain. The longer that God is disobeyed, the more spiritual assistance will be withdrawn and the ancient enemy will appear to prevail everywhere.  We are approaching rapidly the time when we will have to rely on the Rosary and the level of consecration to Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary that we have achieved.

It will no longer be a matter of growing in grace but of a gritty determination to remain faithful through our consecrations to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  With the ever-increasing power of satan in the world, distractions and disorientation will provide immense obstacles to those attempting to remain faithful.
Watch and pray,

“Have in mind therefore in what manner thou hast received and heard: and observe, and do penance. If then thou shalt not watch, I will come to thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know at what hour I will come to thee.” (Apoc. 3,3).

And so we close for another day.

Satan and the Priesthood

As long-time readers know, we have posted on the dangers to the sacred priesthood since the inception of this blog several years ago, stressing the connection between the message of Fatima and the spread of heresy, apostasy and the corruption of the sacred priesthood.

I had hoped that the fact that Archbishop Viganò issued his testimonial on the traditional (true) Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary would be duly noted and celebrated as the victory of the Immaculata which it is. Even though Abp. Viganò referred to the date as the Queenship of Mary, that is the term assigned by the Novus Ordo church to replace that of the title intended by Pope Pius XII. Since 1960, the post-conciliar church has been determined to supplant and minimise devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and their efforts seem to be bearing fruit in the lack of honor to the Immaculata in her latest victory.

For make no mistake, it is only through true and total devotion to the Immaculate  Heart of Mary that the evils of doctrinal and moral dissolution will be purged from the Bride of Christ. Those who congratulate themselves that their efforts are bearing fruit at last will soon see something they did not at all anticipate. Soon, God willing, we will discuss this further. But for now, we offer, from 2015:

An essential part of the message of Fatima is the warning of the corruption of the priesthood. Sister Lúcia spoke of this to Father Agustin Fuentes:

“Father, the devil is in the mood for engaging in a decisive battle against the Blessed Virgin. And the devil knows what it is that most offends God and which in a short space of time will gain for him the greatest number of souls. Thus, the devil does everything to overcome souls consecrated to God, because in this way, the devil will succeed in leaving souls of the faithful abandoned by their leaders, thereby the more easily will he seize them.

That which afflicts the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Heart of Jesus is the fall of religious and priestly souls. The devil knows that religious and priests who fall away from their beautiful vocation drag innumerable souls to Hell … The devil wishes to take possession of consecrated souls. He tries to corrupt them in order to lull to sleep the souls of laypeople and thereby lead them to final impenitence.” (Sister Lucia of Fatima to Father Agustin Fuentes, December, 1957)

In an earlier article, we quoted Pope Benedict’s address to the Curia in 2010 where he in turn, quoted from St. Hildegard von Bingen. However, although I have been unable to obtain that letter of hers wherein she related her vision of the Church, I have recently come across another version of the same vision in Volume 2 of “The Life and Revelations of Anne Catherine Emmerich  by Rev. Carl Schmoger, C.SS.R. (TAN). This more detailed rendering of St. Hildegard’s vision provides significant insight, so we include it here. From pages 98-101:

“Confined to my bed by sickness, I had in the year of the Lord, 1170, a beautiful vision of a Lady more lovely and attractive than human mind can paint. Her form reached from earth to sky, her countenance shone with splendor, her eyes were fixed on heaven. She wore a shining robe of white silk and a mantle embroidered with precious stones, emeralds, sapphires, pearls and flowers of gold; on her feet were shoes of onyx. But her face was soiled with ashes, her robe was torn on the right side, her mantle was stained, her shoes were covered with mud. In a clear, plaintive voice she cried: “Hear O ye heavens! My face is disfigured! – Be afflicted, O earth, for my vesture is rent! – And thou, O abyss, tremble, for my shoes are soiled! The foxes have holes and the birds have nests, but I, I have none to assist or console me, I have no support on which to lean! – I was hidden in the bosom of the Father until the Son of Man, conceived and born of a Virgin, shed His blood in which He espoused me and endowed me with His grace, that in the pure regeneration of spirit and water, I might bring forth those anew whom the serpent’s venom had infected.

But my nurses, the priests who should have preserved my countenance resplendent as the aurora, my robe brilliant as the lightning flash, my mantle glittering as precious stones, my shoes white as snow, have sprinkled my face with ashes, have torn my robe, soiled my mantle, and stained my shoes. They who should have adorned me have allowed me to perish.  They sully my countenance when they handle and eat my Bridegroom’s Flesh and Blood in spite of the impurity of their life, their fornications, their adulteries, and their rapacity in selling and buying, a thing unlawful to them. Yes, they cover His Flesh and Blood with opprobrium. It is like casting a new born babe to swine.

As man became flesh and blood at the very instant that God formed him from the slime of the earth and breathed into him the breath of life, so the same power of God, at the words of the priest, changes the offering of bread, wine and water upon the altar into the true Flesh and true Blood of Christ, my Spouse; which, however, on account of the blindness occasioned by Adam’s fall, man cannot see with his corporal eyes. The wounds of my Spouse remain fresh and open, as long as those of sinful man are not closed. They are outraged by those priests who, instead of preserving me pure and serving me in holiness, seek with insatiable avidity to heap up riches and benefice on benefice. They tear my vesture by their infidelity to the law, to the Gospel, to the priesthood. They stain my mantle by their neglect of the precepts laid down for them, instead of fulfilling them joyfully and perfectly by continence like unto the beauty of the emerald, by alms-giving like unto the sapphire, and by the practice of all other good works which honor God as so many precious stones. They soil my shoes by walking not in the right path, the rough and difficult path of justice, and by failing to give good example to their inferiors; but in my shoes I perceive the hidden light of truth among a few.

The false priests deceive themselves; they crave the honor attached to their functions while dreading the trouble. But it is impossible for them to have one without the other, since to no one who has not labored will wages be given. When God’s grace touches a man, it urges him to labor for the reward. God now punishes man by raining evils upon him. He covers the earth with them as with a mist until its verdure disappears and it is clothed with darkness. But the abyss will tremble when He will come in His wrath, making heaven and earth the instruments of His vengeance and man’s destruction.

Arrogant princes and nations will rise up against you, O ye priests who have hitherto neglected me! They will drive you forth, they will rob you of your wealth, because you have neglected your sacred ministry. They will cry: “Cast out of the church these adulterers, these robbers full of iniquity!” In so doing, they think they render God a service, saying you have polluted His Church; therefore the Scriptures say, “Why have the nations raged and the people devised vain things?” By God’s permission the nations will rise up against you; they will have vain thoughts of you; they will esteem as naught your priestly dignity and consecration. The princes of the earth will unite to cast you down. Your rulers will drive you from their territories, since your crimes have driven the innocent Lamb far from you.

And I heard a voice from heaven saying: “This vision represents the Church – wherefore, O daughter of man, who dost see these things and hear these lamentations, announce it to the priests who have been instituted and ordained to guide and instruct the people, for to them in the person of the apostles it has been said: “Go into the whole world and preach the Gospel to every creature.” When God created man, He delineated in him every creature, as are written upon a scrap of parchment the seasons and numbers of a whole year; therefore it was that God named man “every creature”.

And I, poor woman, saw again a drawn sword floating in the air, one edge toward heaven, the other toward the earth. And it was raised above a spiritual race that the prophet foresaw when he exclaimed in astonishment: “Who are these, that fly as clouds, and as doves to their windows?”  (Isaiah 1x.8); for they who are raised above the earth, separated from ordinary men, they who should live holily, showing forth in their actions the  simplicity of doves, are evil in their works and manners. And I saw the sword strike the priestly race in many places as Jerusalem was destroyed after the Savior’s Passion; and I saw also, that in the time of tribulation God will spare many pure and upright priests who fear Him, as He said to Elias that he had left in Israel a thousand men who had not bent the knee to Baal. May the inextinguishable fire of the Holy Spirit be enkindled in you to convert you to better things!”

There is much to think about in this vision of St. Hildegard’s. It is axiomatic in applying the revelations of Scriptures and Saints that “What has been will be again”. And thus, Pope Benedict obviously was correct in offering the Curia – and the priests of the Church – the prophecies of St. Hildegard as relevant to our times. Note that Pope Benedict canonised Saint Hildegard – who was already traditionally deemed a saint, thus pointing to the relevance of her prophesies. Please consider this prayerfully, for the testimony of Abp. Viganò bears witness to the prophecies we have been speaking of.

The gist of the above vision appears to substantiate Sister Lucia’s contention that Satan is especially targeting priests to corrupt them and by that corruption, dragging countless numbers of Catholics to hell. In scripture, very often, sins of impurity of the flesh are linked with sins of impurity in belief and worship. Thus adultery and fornications and other foul sins can also apply to heresy and apostasy from the faith. And we see now how closely the sins of sodomy, adultery and fornication are linked. All are based in narcissism and an arrogant determination at self-aggrandisement. Once a poor sinner is caught up in this morass, he becomes blind and maimed and covered with putrescence, although unable, in his spiritual blindness, to see what is obvious to those who retain the clear vision of faith and the light of grace.  Therefore it is essential for those who retain the faith to offer penance and prayers for the relief of these sinners.

We must know that if we have the faith, it is through no great merit of our own, but through the ineffable mercy of God, and this faith is not given us for our sole comfort but entrusted to us that we help others repent, be converted and saved. So many arrogantly “consider themselves Catholics” without knowing their faith. They follow blindly after blinded Churchmen, themselves steeped in corruption. The poor prelates today, stuck on stupid, as it were, cannot help themselves. Pope Francis cannot see what a ridiculous caricature he has made of the papacy; he needs our prayers, our penances on his behalf.

The Church offers us many stellar examples of saints who generously suffered to bring forth an increase in sanctity for poor sinners. St. Hildegard, St. Catherine Siena, St. Jean Vianney, St. Padre Pio, Anna Emmerich and so many more inspire us. Although we may not rise to their heroism,  we must offer everything, each silly little detail of our daily trials and burdens, for the repentance and conversion of sinners, especially those among our clergy.

“Most Holy Trinity, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, I adore Thee profoundly, and I offer Thee the Most Precious Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of the same Son Jesus Christ present in all the Tabernacles of the world, in reparation for all the sacrileges, outrages, and indifferences by which He Himself is offended. Through the infinite merits of His Most Sacred Heart and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of Thee the conversion of poor sinners.” (The Prayer of the Archangel Michael of Fatima)

Please prepare to renew your total consecration to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on her next great feast day, that of her Nativity, September 9! And let us thank her every day for inspiring and strengthening Archbishop Viganò to proclaim the truth of the wicked infestation in the Church, even including this wicked man presuming to be the Vicar of Christ on earth.

There has never been a better time to  Pray the Rosary with confidence and joy!

  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 Sacred Heart of Jesus, Thy kingdom come! Viva Cristo Rey!
  Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death.
  St. Joseph, protect us, protect our families, protect our priests.
  St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, defend our priests.

Please pray for the Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary!

Vouchsafe that I may praise thee, O Sacred Virgin! Give me strength against thine enemies!

Pope Francis Must Resign

Pope Francis must be the first to set a good example for cardinals and bishops who covered up McCarrick’s abuses and resign along with all of them.

 

I’ve added an update at the end of the article. Please note the significance: Abp. Vigano issued this Testimony on the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary!

When I arose this morning at 3 a.m., a reader had texted me the link to the testimony of Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò,  the former apostolic nuncio to the United States which has been made public thanks to Lifesite News and writer Diane Mantagna’s translation. Please refer to the Lifesite News article for the complete story. That link is HERE.

Archbishop Viganò stated that “The main reason why I am revealing this news now is because of the tragic situation of the Church, which can be repaired only by the full truth, just as she has been gravely injured by the abuses and coverups. I do this to stop the suffering of the victims and to prevent new victims, and to protect the Church: only the truth can make her free.” Viganò said the second reason he chose to write his testimony is “to discharge my conscience before God of my responsibilities as bishop of the universal Church. I am an old man and I want to present myself to God with clean conscience.”

I have taken the liberty of emphasizing pertinent sections as it is lengthy.

TESTIMONY

by
His Excellency Carlo Maria Viganò Titular Archbishop of Ulpiana Apostolic Nuncio

In this tragic moment for the Church in various parts of the world — the United States, Chile, Honduras, Australia, etc. — bishops have a very grave responsibility. I am thinking in particular of the United States of America, where I was sent as Apostolic Nuncio by Pope Benedict XVI on October 19, 2011, the memorial feast of the First North American Martyrs. The Bishops of the United States are called, and I with them, to follow the example of these first martyrs who brought the Gospel to the lands of America, to be credible witnesses of the immeasurable love of Christ, the Way, the Truth and the Life.

Bishops and priests, abusing their authority, have committed horrendous crimes to the detriment of their faithful, minors, innocent victims, and young men eager to offer their lives to the Church, or by their silence have not prevented that such crimes continue to be perpetrated.

To restore the beauty of holiness to the face of the Bride of Christ, which is terribly disfigured by so many abominable crimes, and if we truly want to free the Church from the fetid swamp into which she has fallen, we must have the courage to tear down the culture of secrecy and publicly confess the truths we have kept hidden. We must tear down the conspiracy of silence with which bishops and priests have protected themselves at the expense of their faithful, a conspiracy of silence that in the eyes of the world risks making the Church look like a sect, a conspiracy of silence not so dissimilar from the one that prevails in the mafia. “Whatever you have said in the dark … shall be proclaimed from the housetops” (Lk. 12:3).

On being Catholic in the time of dry wood

This is perhaps the most humiliating time ever to be a Catholic. Most of us, if the truth were told would prefer to be in the days of outright persecution rather than experience the humiliation and degradation of the faith brought to us by the homosexual predators who have destroyed so many souls and with them the holiness of the Church. This morning’s news reveals more arrogant unrepentant bishops exonerating themselves. They refuse to accept the blame! Over and over again, Catholics are heard making remarks like, “I am so sick!”, “I am heartbroken!” and worst of all, the plaintive cry, “Where is Jesus in all this?”

Passion of Christ and His Bride

 If Catholics continue to ignore the spiritual weapons Our Lady of the Rosary offers us, they will bring upon themselves and us all, a rapidly worsening chastisement, which will be all-encompassing, that is, both material and spiritual. And if you do not believe that the spiritual chastisement can get any worse than McCarrick, Bergoglio et al., you will perhaps be in for a rude awakening. Reparation. Reparation. Reparation.

At long last the network of homosexual predators and enablers who have usurped power in the Church is being noticed and many prominent Catholics are speaking out and declaring indignantly, “Something must be done!” However, any successful remedy depends upon a correct diagnosis.   Ill-considered actions run the risk of worsening the situation.

The Smoke of Satan, an Apostate Pope and the Message of Fatima

 

Among the many insights which Father Malachi Martin shared with us, are the following three which pertain especially to this woe-filled pontificate:

Lucifer enthroned in the Vatican

In his book, Windswept House, Father Martin states that the Enthronement of Lucifer occurred June 29, 1963 and elsewhere he stated that the follow-up Enthronement must be performed at the Vatican within 50 years of that date, which would have been June 29, 2013, I believe. In other words, shortly after Jorge Bergoglio took over the Vatican, and moved in with his dear friend, Msgr. Ricca.

Assuming, for the sake of argument, that the full enthronement did occur June 29, 2013, a case could be made that such an enthronement would have given the current Pope previously unheard of power to destroy the edifices of the faith. It seems quite likely to have occurred. And most recently, this past June 29, the Feast of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul, Pope Francis created  Bishop Toribio Ticona a cardinal.  Ticona is Titular of Timici, Prelate Emeritus of Corocoro in Bolivia,  It is public knowledge that while working in Corocoro, at the same time, in the Bishopric of Oruro he maintained a marital life with a woman, the wife and children are proud to call themselves the wife and children of the “Bishop of Patacamaya” as is also known Bishop Toribio Ticona. Cardinal Ticona is also a marxist. 

Thus, Pope Francis marked the five-year anniversary of the enthronement with a public display of the Vicar of Christ granting a high honor to a man who personifies infidelity to his priestly vow of chastity. This is perfectly reasonable in this satanic ape of the papacy: for now, the Pope honors deceit, infidelity in the service of the first of God’s creatures to proclaim, “Non Serviam”. To be clear, by his actions, this Pope honors not our Lord Jesus Christ, but His ancient enemy, who “will not serve”.

The Smoke of Satan has entered the Temple of God

Nine years to the day after that enthronement, on 29 June, 1972, Pope Paul lamented,

“We believed that after the [Second Vatican] Council would come a day of sunshine in the history of the Church. But instead there has come a day of clouds and storms, and of darkness … “And how did this come about? We will confide to you the thought that maybe we ourselves admit in free discussion, that may be unfounded, and that is that there has been a power, an adversary power. Let us call him by his name: the Devil. … It is as if from some mysterious crack, no, it is not mysterious, from some crack the smoke of Satan has entered the Temple of God.

In his book, The Kingdom of Darkness, Father Martin describes what is meant by “the smoke of Satan”, describing an interview Pope Paul Vi gave to his close friend, Jean Guitton not long before he died. When Guitton asked the Pope about his often-quoted remark regarding the smoke of Satan, Paul VI replied,

“Yes, the smoke of Satan is in the sanctuary. Due to the presence of Satan, Catholics are destined to become an infinitesimally small part of humanity.”

A Pope under the control of Satan

Antonio Socci, in his book, “The Fourth Secret of Fatima” relates the following episode which was recorded from a radio interview Father Malachi Martin gave on the Art Bell Show,

A listener intervenes on the precise content of the Secret: making reference to confidences received from a Jesuit, he speaks of a Pope who “would be under the control of Satan. Pope John was reeling, thinking that it could have been him.” Father Martin responds: “Yes, it seems that this person would have had a means of reading or would have been given the contents of the secret.” Then he got to the heart of the matter: “it is sufficiently vague to cause hesitation, but it seems to be that.”

If the Church had the misfortune to fall under the sway of an apostate pope and his Vatican who were under the control of the ancient enemy, we would see events unfolding precisely as they are now, using every opportunity to affirm defiance to the truth of Christ Our Lord. We would see the Pope:

  • Instructing the Order of Consecrated Virgins that their consecrated virginity is optional and can even be set aside.
  • Publicly honoring churchmen who are openly engaged in lifestyles which defy their vows of chastity.
  • Affirming that, “If anything, it is the communists who think like Christians.”, while at the same time, vilifying and betraying faithful Catholics.
  • Teaching that Judas was a “poor, repentant man” in direct opposition to Our Lord Jesus Christ Who taught that Judas was “the son of perdition” who was not saved.
  • Denying the nature of Hell, in direct defiance of the word of God and the message of Our Lady of Fatima.
  • Asserting to a young man who was the victim of priest sexual abuse that his homosexuality was actually ordained by God and that he should be happy with it. Note that priest sexual abusers spread their impure practices by initiating young men into their ranks with what is referred to as the rite of sodomy. That is in fact, how this vile practice spreads, for the most part. For the Pope to assert that “God made you like this and loves you like this” is to claim that it was God and not a predator priest who caused this aberration.

In the next few months, we will see further milestones achieved as the diabolical sect labors to complete their facade over what they believe are the ruins of the true Church.

Thus, step by step, each objective is achieved and we shall see the pope at last, call down fire from heaven (Apoc 13, 13). All this is not happening in a vacuum, however. The portion of the Secret which refers to the material chastisement is also rapidly being fulfilled, although many Christians, even and especially those of the traditionalist persuasion, are tragically misled in this regard.

For now, we conclude with this oft-ignored caution from Our Blessed Mother,

“If my requests are heeded, Russia will be converted and there will be peace; if not, Russia will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions against the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, various nations will be annihilated.” (July 13, 1917)

Father Martin continued,

“In Rome, there is a force which at the present moment is immovable. It cannot be dislodged by ordinary human means. This is where, again, one’s faith in Our Lady of Fatima comes in because she said that only she can save the Church because that is what her Son has willed. It is not so because it was her own choice, but because it what Christ has chosen. Christ chose that His Mother should be the one to come and finally save the Church. If you read carefully what Our Lady told Sister Lucia, you get a strong message that things are going bad. Many of the elect will lose their faith.”

Another quote:

“The Luciferians have a very tight schedule. They have an inner Luciferian prophecy that says that unless the prince is properly installed in the citadel, namely in the Vatican, they have lost. Now in order to install the prince and complete the enthronement, they have to get rid of this Pope.” (Referring to Pope John Paul II.)

Shoring up the ruins?

Is the Vatican moving to protect church properties in other countries from confiscation in legal judgements?   The Pope has issued Guidelines  to the Cardinals, through the Secretariat of State, setting up an office at the Vatican Bank for the purpose of the transfer of assets.  Although the pope assures that his intentions are for a spiritual testament, I cannot help but wonder why a spiritual testament like St. Paul’s, as he claims, would require a document notarized by the Vatican and handled by the Vatican Bank. 

Pope Francis appears to be attempting to shore up the ruins of his disastrous papacy with his recent meeting with the Chilean Bishops. Ever the master of PR, he charged them with “an absolute lack of respect for canonical procedure and, even more, reprehensible practices which must be avoided in the future.” This despite the fact that he recently presided over a celebration of the Neocatechumenal Way at which Archbishop Anthony Apuron was among the honored guests, seated with other Bishops and dignitaries, despite having been convicted of several charges pertaining to sexual abuse of minors and ordered to resign as Bishop.

The list of the Bergoglian  priests, Bishops, Archbishops and Cardinals who have been associated with homosexuality or clerical sex abuse is so extensive that we cannot cover it here, but for some time now we have suggested that all this rot reminds us of St. Hildegard von Bingen’s prophecy in The Figure of a Woman:

And behold! That monstrous head moved from its place with such a great shock that the figure of the woman (The Church, Bride of Christ) was shaken through all her limbs. And a great mass of excrement adhered to the head; and it raised itself up upon a mountain and tried to ascend the height of Heaven. And behold, there came suddenly a thunderbolt, which struck that head with such great force that it fell from the mountain and yielded up its spirit in death. And a reeking cloud enveloped the whole mountain, which wrapped the head in such filth that the people who stood by were thrown into the greatest terror. And that cloud remained around the mountain for a while longer.

The people who stood there, perceiving this, were shaken with great fear, and said to one another: “Alas, alas! What is this? What do you think this was? Alas, wretches that we are! Who will help us, and who will deliver us? For we know not how we were deceived. O Almighty God, have mercy on us! Let us return; let us hasten to the covenant of Christ’s Gospel; for ah, ah, ah! We have been bitterly deceived!“ And lo, the feet of the figure of the woman glowed white, shining with a splendor greater than the sun’s.

There is another development in this disgusting scandal. Sandro Magister, in his post today (LINK) reports on recent activities of the Humble Pope, who now appears to be signalling a retreat. But what I found most interesting is the following:
