Venerable Fulton Sheen on the Bergoglian Reformation

 

Update: This post updated 5:00 pm 24 July, 2019 to answer reader concerns.

Did Venerable Archbishop Fulton Sheen, in 1950  foretell the Bergoglian papacy?

In his book, Communism and the Conscience of the West, here is what (then) Father Sheen said:

We are living in the days of the Apocalypse, the last days of our era. The two great forces-the Mystical Body of Christ and the Mystical Body of the anti-Christ are beginning to draw battle lines for the catastrophic contest.

The False prophet will have a religion without a cross. A religion without a world to come. A religion to destroy religions. There will be a counterfeit Church.

Christ’s Church the Catholic Church will be one; and the false Prophet will create the other.

The False Church will be worldly, ecumenical, and global. It will be a loose federation of churches and religions, forming some type of global association.

A world parliament of Churches. It will be emptied of all Divine content, it will be the mystical body of the anti-christ. The Mystical Body on earth today will have its Judas Iscariot, and he will be the false prophet. Satan will recruit him from our Bishops.

The Antichrist will not be so called; otherwise he would have no followers. He will not wear red tights, nor vomit sulphur, nor carry a trident nor wave an arrowed tail as Mephistopheles in Faust. This masquerade has helped the Devil convince men that he does not exist. When no man recognizes, the more power he exercises. God has defined Himself as “I am Who am,” and the Devil as “I am who am not.”

False ShepherdNowhere in Sacred Scripture do we find warrant for the popular myth of the Devil as a buffoon who is dressed like the first “red.” Rather is he described as an angel fallen from heaven, as “the Prince of this world,” whose business it is to tell us that there is no other world. His logic is simple: if there is no heaven there is no hell; if there is no hell, then there is no sin; if there is no sin, then there is no judge, and if there is no judgment then evil is good and good is evil. But above all these descriptions, Our Lord tells us that he will be so much like Himself that he would deceive even the elect–and certainly no devil ever seen in picture books could deceive even the elect. How will he come in this new age to win followers to his religion?

The pre-Communist Russian belief is that he will come disguised as the Great Humanitarian; he will talk peace, prosperity and plenty not as means to lead us to God, but as ends in themselves. . . .

The third temptation in which Satan asked Christ to adore him and all the kingdoms of the world would be His, will become the temptation to have a new religion without a Cross, a liturgy without a world to come, a religion to destroy a religion, or a politics which is a religion–one that renders unto Caesar even the things that are God’s.

In the midst of all his seeming love for humanity and his glib talk of freedom and equality, he will have one great secret which he will tell to no one: he will not believe in God. Because his religion will be brotherhood without the fatherhood of God, he will deceive even the elect. He will set up a counter-church which will be the ape of the Church, because he, the Devil, is the ape of God. It will have all the notes and characteristics of the Church, but in reverse and emptied of its divine content. It will be a mystical body of the Antichrist that will in all externals resemble the mystical body of Christ. . . .

But the twentieth century will join the counter-church because it claims to be infallible (when its visible head speaks ex cathedra from Moscow on the subject of economics and politics, and as chief shepherd of world communism.)

Marxist Pope
“…not a true pastor, but a destroyer.”

Now Archbishop Sheen was both very familiar with the message of Fatima about the Chastisement to come, and the threat posed by the “errors of Russia”. Hence the portion of his prophecy above that references the anti-church taking orders from Moscow, which may not seem applicable today. But there is a pretty good case to be made that on this point, as well, Archbishop Sheen was correct. For as we are seeing in the Pan-Amazon Synod, the Vatican agenda is thoroughly Marxist in character and there is in the Instrumentum Laboris not one shred of Catholic doctrine that has not been perverted into its opposite.

It is becoming increasingly clear, even to the Novus Ordo “conservative” Catholics, that Pope Francis is preaching a “religion of man”, emptied of all concept of sin, and even of Jesus Christ crucified. Thus, he is not preaching salvation but damnation.

Update: A very dear reader contacted me to apprise me of Ven.  Abp. Sheen’s endorsement of heretic Teilhard de Chardin towards the end of his life. Yes, I have heard of this, although I have not read the book in which he made those statements. Despite this, the remarks which I have quoted lend insight into the crisis we now face from an apostate pope. I believe Abp. Sheen’s words here quoted help us see that what we are experiencing now was deemed possible many, many years ago, and that knowledge helps us understand and prepare for our spiritual combat.

For example: If I hear a lovely symphony and someone tells me to avoid it because late in life the composer made serious mistakes in judgement,  I would respond that mistakes made after the fact do not, I think, detract from the value of the earlier work, which in itself appears blameless.  I would of course, reject the later error. evensong.

And another from Lifesite news here.

And pretty much every article posted on Pan-Amazon Synod Watch. See our sidebar for link.

We should thank God and our Blessed Mother for mercifully making the truth of the current time glaringly clear for all to see. As Sister Lùcia reminded us, “Penance, penance, penance!”

Above all, Pray the Rosary and Confound the Devil and those who serve him.

†  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!
  St. Joseph, protect us, protect our families, protect our priests.
  St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.

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

Seven Trumpets, 2019

 

Today, we return to a little article that we first did in 2013, right after our humble pontiff moved into the Santa Marta with his dear friends Msgr. Ricca and his “spiritual son” Gustavo Zanchetta. We repost from time to time for those just coming on board. It has been edited and updated once more at 9:43, July 23, 2019.

“And the angel took the censer, and filled it with the fire of the altar, and cast it on the earth, and there were thunders and voices and lightnings, and a great earthquake. And the seven angels, who had the seven trumpets, prepared themselves to sound the trumpet.” (Apoc. 8)

Seven Trumpets

Prior to Fatima, Our Lady appeared at Quito, La Salette, Knock and (after Fatima) at Akita, all of which had a common thread of dire warning. Even though the apparition at Knock was silent, its prophetic relevance is clear from our perspective after 50 years of modernist “renewal”.

Let’s start with Pope Paul’s Trumpets: In an interview with the Italian newspaper Avvenire, French writer Jean Guitton, a close friend of Pope Paul VI, recalled this interesting bit of history,

The False Prophet and a Synod of Darkness

 

Suppose for a moment that the Lamb with Two Horns, that is, the False Prophet, were to gain control of the Church. And that he himself proclaims, he is, “the guarantor of the obedience and the conformity of the Church to the will of God, to the Gospel of Christ, and to the Tradition of the Church, putting aside every personal whim, despite being by the will of Christ Himself the supreme Pastor and Teacher of all the faithful and despite enjoying supreme, full, immediate, and universal ordinary power in the Church.” (Catholic Herald, 10/19/2014)

Much of the material in the following article is taken from Frère Michel de la Sainte Trinite’s “The Whole Truth About Fatima, Vol. III”. . Ed. Note: A long time reader, Tadeu de Jesus Giatti,  has located the correct url to download this book. The link is: https://archive.org/details/TheWholeTruthAboutFatimaVol3

What is certain is that outwardly this false prophet will act as one exercising authority in the name of God and in His service, while in reality it will be completely in the service of the Beast.  It will use fire from Heaven, the authority of the papacy, the anathema, to disarm its enemies and conquer Christians. This is because the Lamb, that is, the False Prophet will then condemn what is holy and consecrate what comes from the Evil One. (The Whole Truth About Fatima, Vol III)

The looming catastrophe of the Pan-Amazon Synod, which will attempt to destroy the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the celibate priesthood  will quite possibly be enforced with a Bergoglian anathema against all who oppose it; although it will be phrased in the usual ambiguity. We can expect that the Synod will initiate the final stage in the attempted modernist overthrow of the Church, opening up the Church to frank schism and the time of heightened suffering. Worsening the crisis will be revelations of more sexual and financial scandals and the long-expected international sanctions, loss of tax exempt status and in many cases, seizure of assets. It would not be surprising to see the arrogant German apostates stripped of their wholly undeserved “Kirchensteuer” (the massive amount of tax revenue the corrupt heresiarchs rake in).

The most critical event in the forecast above (which is only a speculation, for the sake of discussion) will be  the attempt to abrogate the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the attack on the sacred priesthood, both of which are attacks on the very person of Our Lord Jesus Christ. and so we could assume that this will bring us to the culmination of the Chastisement.  Consider if the present occupant of the See of Peter may not be the man to accomplish this. Perhaps it may explain his red-hot hurry to accomplish so many radical changes in such a brutal manner – he is rapidly approaching his expiry date.

THE PROPHETIC WRITINGS, A SOURCE OF PATIENCE, CONSOLATION AND HOPE

“We are here at the most extreme point of the triumph of Impiety, at the hour of the most complete victory of the  “mystery of iniquity”, as Saint Paul says, the  “mystery of the Beast”, as Saint John says (Apocalypse 17: 7). It is a bewildering mystery, this hour of the triumph of  “the Power of Darkness”; yet it belongs to the divine economy of the plan of redemption. For before the triumph of Jesus Christ comes, before His universal Kingdom is instituted, during which “the Gospel of the Kingdom will be proclaimed in the whole world, as a witness before all peoples” (Mt. 24: 14),  “the apostasy must come”,  “the Man of Sin, the Son of Perdition has to manifest himself”; the  “False Prophet”, the False Lamb must do its work of perversion  “that the Scripture may be fulfilled”, as Jesus said concerning the betrayal by Judas:  “I know whom I have chosen, but that the Scripture may be fulfilled.” (John. 13: 18)

Ed. Note: Frère Michel wrote the foregoing in about 1984-85 and see how they apply now.

And in His priestly prayer, Jesus says:  “I watched over them, and not one of them perished except the son of perdition, in order that the Scripture may be fulfilled.” (John. 17: 12) Saint Peter also, after the Ascension says:  “Brethren, the Scripture must be fulfilled which the Holy Spirit declared before by the mouth of David concerning Judas, who was the leader of those who arrested Jesus: inasmuch as he had been numbered among us and allotted his share in this ministry…” (Acts 1: 16)

BEHOLD, I HAVE FORETOLD IT TO YOU” (Matt. 24: 25).

“As it happened in Our Lord’s earthly life, just before the victory of His resurrection, so also this “hour of the Power of Darkness” must be accomplished in the life of His pilgrim Church. So the Scriptures warn us.  … This had to come. This worldwide apostasy, which suddenly has become the major phenomenon of our times, no longer bewilders us; we know that it was written.  It is no longer the defeat of Christianity, the proof of its weakness, the crushing argument against its divine truth… On the contrary, the literal fulfillment of the prophecies comes as a strengthening of our faith, it alone can persuade the unbeliever, and it nourishes our hope.

“These times are diabolical;  But we needed the support, the absolute security of the Divine Word to dare to say it to ourselves and declare it openly. Strong in this revelation, we understand that we must hold on and not let up, (We must) remain in “the camp of the saints”, infiltrated from every side and rotted by traitors, preserve the faith intact even when the division is introduced into our own families and into our churches. In such a situation, we reach the point of thinking that the worst is yet to come. If the hour of Satan’s final assaults has arrived, then we are not finished suffering.” (Frère Michel de la Sainte Trinite. The Whole Truth about Fatima – Vol III)

Indeed, we are not at all finished suffering! And this is why we need to redouble our prayers, especially our Rosaries and Adoration, and our sacrifices. As St. Michael the Archangel urged the children – and us! – Make of everything a sacrifice. Don’t let anything be wasted !

THE MYSTERY OF THE THIRD SECRET

Our Lady of the Rosary appearing at Fatima more than one hundred years ago  as the Woman Clothed with the Sun – “She was of light” as Lùcia said – revealed herself to her children  just before the  Red Dragon appeared  in the East.  This Red Dragon is the Ancient Adversary who calls  forth the two beasts who serve him. Thus we see The Woman appearing  to warn us and prepare us at the very hour when the first Beast of the Apocalypse was taking shape – a Beast which She came to designate and denounce by name – announced equally, in Her third Secret, the events corresponding to the third image of the triptych in chapters 12 and 13 of the Apocalypse. Sister Lùcia told us that the third Secret was in the Apocalypse, which indicates this passage concerning the apostasy of the pastors of the Church, placing themselves at the service of an impious political power – chapter 13, verses 11 to 18.

“As the Secret in its entirety describes the final combat of the forces of Evil against the Immaculate Virgin, we would find there the three satanic powers described by Saint John: in the first part, the devil himself and the vision of hell corresponding to the Dragon of the Apocalypse; in the second part, the hegemony of Russian communism corresponds to the first Beast; finally, in the third part, the apostasy and treason of many pastors of the Church correspond to the description of the false lamb, the false prophet in the service of the Beast.

Moreover, in perfect coherence with our previous demonstrations on the most probable contents of the third Secret, its conclusion, full of an invincible hope and announcing a decisive victory, confirms us in this hypothesis. After the revelation of the third Secret, the Blessed Virgin continues:  “In the end My Immaculate Heart will triumph. The Holy Father will consecrate Russia to Me, and she will be converted, and a certain period of peace will be granted to the world.”

“Such a triumph, announced so solemnly – and which, as we will see, is not without an evocation of the future Jerusalem, the Christendom of tomorrow, of Chapters 21 and 22 of the Apocalypse: ‘and I saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of Heaven from God…’ (Apocalypse 21: 2) – such a triumph of itself indicates above all the spiritual significance of the tragic battle preceding it.

And its temporal expression –  “in the end” – so heavy with implications, allows us to guess the furious struggle, no doubt even the reversals and seeming total defeat that will come before the final victory of the New Eve. Does not this triumph come to close a battle which was above all Her own, the one announced in the proto-Gospel?  “She shall crush thy head.” Yes, it is she who will overcome the diabolical wave sweeping over the Church, the impiety installed even in the sanctuary, and all the obscure (occult) forces which foment apostasy. For clothed with the power of the Most High, She is more fearsome than an army in battle array:  “Fair as the moon, bright as the sun, terrible as an army set in battle array”, according to the words of the Canticle of Canticles (Cant. 6: 10).

The Triumph of her Immaculate Heart  is  the victory of the Faith, which defeats heresy, apostasy and corruption, restoring the Church. This will be the final triumph of the Woman of the Apocalypse, the Mother of the faithful.  Her decisive victory over the Prince of lies, instigator of all heresy, all schism, all impiety and apostasy: “Cunctas haereses tu sola interemisti in universo mundo!” You alone, O Mary Immaculate, Virgin Most Faithful have destroyed all heresies in the whole world!”

Our Lord Jesus Christ came to us through the Blessed Virgin Mary and it is through her that He wills that we return to Him.  She, the Mother of Fair Love calls us through love, with her Rosary., with our scapular and consecration. These simple remedies, so rich in graces should not be ignored!

In St. Paul’s Epistle to Ephesians, we read:

“Finally,  brethren, be strengthened in the Lord, and in the might of His power. Put you on the armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the deceits of the devil. For our wrestling is not against flesh and blood; but against principalities and power, against the rulers of the world of this darkness, against the spirits of wickedness in the high places. Therefore take unto you the armor of God, that you may be able to resist in the evil day, and to stand in all things perfect. Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of justice, And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace: In all things taking the shield of faith, wherewith you may be able to extinguish all the fiery darts of the most wicked one. And take unto you the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit (which is the word of God). ( Ephesians 6, 10-17)

Thank you for reading and for your many prayers; I pray for you always!

Pray the Rosary for love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the salvation of souls!

Rainbow Logic

 

Recently, France has experienced its own “Terri Schiavo” moment and in a tragic recap of that case, Vincent Lambert was denied such basic care as food and even water.  We have all become somewhat accustomed to our church leaders refusing to lead in these moments, and hiding behind bland statements concocted by their “public relations” managers. But this time, in what must be a whole new level of incompetence the head of  the Pontifical Academy for Life,  Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia spoke at length on the subject, stringing cliches together without ever mentioning the commandments of God, or Our Lord Jesus Christ, Whom he purports to serve.

The analysis, including Paglia’s commentary is admirably covered by Lifesite here.

Vincent Lambert was denied even such a basic need as water. Think of that a moment, and realize what it must have been like for him. And the illustrious Paglia – yes, that one, he of the homorerotic mural – referred to the situation as “suspension of artificial feeding and hydration”. Artificial!!

“The painful family conflict over the hypothesis of the suspension of artificial feeding and hydration, since access to the knowledge of the patient’s wishes is excluded – an essential element in assessing the proportionality of treatment – has led to a deadlock that has lasted for years.”

(. . . )

“These events therefore require us to clarify and deepen the role and meaning of medical care and the criteria that govern its use. Pope Francis also reminded us that it is necessary to avoid a blind extension of biological functions, losing sight of the integral good of the person (Address to the World Medical Association Convention on Assisted Suicide, 16 November 2017).

“In the face of these dramatic divisions, it is first of all a question of assuming an attitude of contemplation  and prayer of proximity, so that we can find means of communication that promote reconciliation rather than controversy, at family and social levels. We must also avoid entrusting the solution only to a technical or legal action in order to seek together the broadest possible agreement. It is a journey that requires a commitment, not only personal but also collective, to develop that sense of life that suffering challenges and to confront the radical limit of death. It is a question of awakening the forces that culture has always mobilized in the history of humanity, in all its symbolic expressions, from artistic to religious, offering reasons to live. Only a broader and deeper formation of consciousness can prepare us for such dramatic and complex decisions. Knowing that no one should ever be abandoned. That love must always accompany him. A love that also overcomes death.”

Well, evidently Paglia’s rainbow love cannot overcome thirst. It’s possible that  I can never grasp Paglia’s wisdom, since I do not have my own rainbow glasses. And so, poor me, I cannot see where refusing a drink of water to someone who is quite helplessly ill is an affirmation of the “integral good of the person”.

Paglia advises us  that  we need to “assume an attitude of contemplation” and a “prayer of proximity”  to “find means of communication”.  Do we need our own rainbow glasses when we assume this attitude of contemplation?

And he stresses that  “only” a “deeper formation of consciousness” can “prepare for such dramatic and complex decisions” regarding whether a sick and helpless person should be forced to die without even a drink of water.  It never occurs to him to simply kneel before our dear Lord Jesus Christ in the Blessed Sacrament, and ask Him. Vincenzo Paglia, your REAL boss is calling you! You will only find the answer to these “dramatic” enigmas in Christ Our Lord. Take off your silly glasses, and pray!

Dr. Elizabeth Wickham of Lifetree.org explains,

“Transformed by the new medical specialty of palliative medicine today’s death hastening agenda has supplied us with professionals who are taught and certified in skills needed to patients and families into requesting life-limiting medical treatment.   Archbishop Paglia’s statement fails to properly interpret the Fifth Commandment and to warn the faithful. (Had he done so), The world would have better understood what happened to Vincent Lambert.

“In addition, did you know that the Vatican, under the direction of Archbishop Paglia, is funding the PAL-Life Project launched by the Pontifical Academy for Life in 2018 and designed to expand palliative medicine into both developed and underdeveloped countries?  http://www.academyforlife.va/content/pav/en/projects/pallife.html”

“Indeed, it is a tragedy. Palliative medicine funded by globalist George Soros and now by the Vatican is becoming the new philosophy of end-of-life care in a global economy.  The cases of Vincent Lambert in France, Baby Alphie Evans in the UK, Terri Schiavo in the US, and many others are evidence of this takeover of healthcare. It is time to speak out about these abuses against the Fifth Commandment.

Note the Date – June 29, 2019

 

Last year, on May 29, we posted  Note the date: June 29, 2018”  In that article, we explained the significance of the Feast of Saints Peter and Paul, on June 29 each year. For those who have not read that post, the assertion refers to the Enthronement of Lucifer in the Vatican on June 29, 1963 and then, we suggested that preliminary enthronement was completed, on June 29, 2013,  right after Jorge Bergoglio moved into the Casa Santa Marta with his dear friend, Monsignor Ricca.

My premise is that even though we cannot confirm that the enthronement was completed on June 29, 2013, the Pope’s actions on the feast day of Saints Peter and Paul each year may yield evidence of its significance, perhaps becoming an opportunity for Pope Francis to show his true allegiance and/or his defiance of Christ, the True Head of the Holy Catholic Church.

Last year on that date, Pope Francis took the opportunity to honor Bishop Toribio Ticona with the Cardinal’s hat, thus signalling his approval for Ticona’s leftist politics and Ticona’s well-known scandalous concubinage. By publicly honoring Ticona, the pope was showing his intentions for this October’s Pan-Amazon Synod, as we are beginning to see.

So, what did the Pope do this year, as the Vicar of Christ and successor of St. Peter? How did he honor the first Pope?

We are deeply indebted to Lifesite news, Diane Montagna for the following, the entire post is here.

“In an unexpected and what some in Rome are viewing as an ominous gesture, Pope Francis has given away relics of St. Peter the Apostle to an Orthodox patriarch. Following a solemn Mass on June 29, the liturgical feast of the Apostles Sts. Peter and Paul, the Pope gave a delegation representing Orthodox Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople a bronze reliquary containing nine bone fragments of the first Pope.” . . .

“Pope Francis told (Archbishop Job of Telmessos): “I no longer live in the Apostolic Palace, I never use this chapel, I never [celebrate] Holy Mass here, and we have St. Peter’s relics in the basilica itself, so it will be better if they will be kept in Constantinople.” . . .

“Admitting to being somewhat taken aback by the Pope’s decision, Archbishop Job said: “This is an extraordinary and unexpected event that we did not expect. The relics of the Holy Apostle Peter were always kept in Rome where they were the purpose of pilgrimages. The Orthodox Church has never asked for them since they never belonged to the Church of Constantinople,”

St. Peter’s Protection Leaving Rome

Diane Montagna added, quoting unnamed sources in the Vatican: “… some observers view the gesture as an ominous sign for the Church and for Rome.

“Pope Francis literally gave St. Peter away,” one source in Rome told LifeSite. “Incredible as a gesture.”

“The relics were in the Pope’s private chapel,” a priest noted. “He clearly prefers to make a ‘gesture’ of the relics than to pray before them and receive special graces from his patron, the first Pope.” “It is an entirely secular way of thinking, and what he reaps — secularization — he will sow for the whole Church, in a way no one expects,” he added.

In comments to LifeSite, another priest in Rome noted how important “locus,” i.e. place, is in Catholic thought, and added that it was the Lord’s will that Peter be martyred in Rome.

The priest pointed out that Christian art and literature have depicted Peter fleeing crucifixion in Rome during Emperor Nero’s persecution. According to a Christian tradition, on a road outside the city, Peter met the risen Jesus. In the Latin translation, Peter asks Jesus, “Quo vadis, Domine?,” to which the risen Lord responds: “Romam eo iterum crucifigi” (“I am going to Rome to be crucified again”). The vision gave Peter the courage to return to the city, where he was martyred by being crucified upside down.

“I strongly suspect this is a sign that St. Peter’s protection will be leaving the Vatican,” an observer in Rome said. “What to watch for next: Francis gives relics of St Paul to Protestants. It would be in the same line as the logic of this move. And it would further remove divine protection, preparing St Peter’s for a devastation not seen since the sack of Rome in the 1500s.” . . .

“Often signs are given to us,” one observer commented on Twitter following the news.

“St. Peter leaving Rome for the East means only one [thing]: the judgment has been passed upon Rome.”

Dropping Roses

Readers, a post on my blog makes as much impact as dropping a rose down the abyss of the Grand Canyon. It is an utterly pointless endeavor for me, and so, forgive me for begging, but beg I must. I do not ask that you try to gain the attention of the powerful bloggers. They block me for a reason and we must accept that as the way of the world. So what can be done?

I ask only that you try to get those you know to consider that we do truly have a man occupying the papacy, in control of the  pure and holy Bride of Christ, the One, Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church, who is determined to destroy it. Giving the sacred relics of the first Pope, Saint Peter, to schismatics who reject the Papacy, is an extremely significant event. We need to try our best to get others to pray and to add to their prayers sacrifices, making reparation, pray to Our Lady of the Rosary, entrust to her Immaculate Heart to come to the aid of the Church in this time of dire need.

With this highly symbolic event, the pope signifies his intention to complete the decapitation of the church, the dethroning of the papacy. He had earlier (I do not have the quote at hand right now) said that the monarchy must go. Destruction of the papacy, that is the monarchical structure, is essential to destroy the Church as Father Malachi Martin pointed out and we have cited in many posts.

Soon we will have the Pan-Amazon Synod when the pope’s men will further destroy the structure of the church in her Mass, sacraments and especially, her sacred priesthood, thus fulfilling Cardinal Manning’s ominous prophecy as we wrote inCardinal Manning on Bergoglio’s Reformation“:

“The Word of God tells us that towards the end of time the power of this world will became so irresistible and so triumphant that the Church of God will sink underneath its hand … It will be deprived of protection. It will be weakened, baffled, and prostrate, and will lie bleeding at the feet of the powers of this world.” 

We have discussed this extensively in our earlier posts, and all ignored.  Judas Complex and Pope Francis,  Malachi Martin’s Three Possibilities. and many others.

 

Our Mother of Perpetual Help, 2019

 

NOTE: This post has considerable new material. I hope that regular readers will not dismiss it as just another re-post.

In the year of Our Lord 2019, we face an unprecedented crisis – the world has lost its Faith, and the Vicar of Christ himself is leading the Church which Christ founded into the very heart of darkness. To a world starving for the Bread of Life, this Pope offers the stone of eco-paganism. For more on this, please see Cardinal Brandmüller on Bergoglio’s apostasy here. What can be done? Who can effectively confront this man?

 

Hapless are they who neglect Mary under pretext of the honor to be paid to Jesus Christ! As if the Child could be found elsewhere than with the Mother!”  (Pope St. Pius X, Ad Diem Illum Laetissimum, 1904)

 

Our Mother of Perpetual Help
Our Lady of Perpetual Help
“There is no problem I tell you, no matter how difficult it is, that we cannot resolve by the prayer of the Holy Rosary.”

Today is the Feast of Our Mother of Perpetual Help. In the miraculous image, the Christ Child confronted with the Archangels Gabriel (on His left) and Michael (on His right) carrying the instruments of the Crucifixion, has turned to His most Blessed Mother for solace.

But the most poignant detail in the image is the loosened sandal dangling from the Christ Child’s foot — the image invites us to “complete it” by considering the Blessed Mother tenderly fastening her Divine Son’s sandal, ever attending to His needs. The instruments of Our Lord’s Crucifixion also call to mind that at His Crucifixion Christ gave her to us to be our Mother, a role that she displays in this richly complex image, Mother of Perpetual Help.

Devotion to Our Lady as Our Mother of Perpetual Help is an ancient devotion but it is ever new — we never “progress”  so much that we no longer need God’s grace, which He dispenses through the lovely hands of the Immaculata. For centuries now, she has extended those hands to us, offering us the way to restore the Church, and restore our souls. But centuries have passed, and her warnings and promises have been mostly ignored.

It is disingenuous for today’s Catholic pundits to wring their hands at the crisis as though nobody saw this coming and as though the situation is hopeless. Our Lord assured Sister Lúcia that it is never too late to turn to the Sacred Hearts and Our Lady of the Rosary promised Lúcia that she would triumph in the end. She gave us a plan; it is her message of Fatima.

But here we are, awaiting the next stroke of the pope’s axe to the roots of the faith. The Pan-Amazon Synod will occur 102 years after Our Lady’s last visit at Fatima, Portugal. The prophecies are being fulfilled before our eyes as Pope Francis prepares to enact Saint Hildegard’s “Figure of a Woman” vision — the stinking head will attempt to challenge the true head of the Church. He wants to destroy the sacred priesthood and especially the Most Blessed Sacrament. As he indicated on the Feast of Corpus Christi, reversing the doctrine of transubstantiation to assert that Jesus becomes bread. There is ample evidence that this Pan-Amazon Synod has been over 40 years in the planning and it will be followed by the German Bishops who intend to assert the right to sodomy.

One commentator recently indicated that we “cling to our beads” among other things to help us endure this disastrous state of affairs. Now, Our Lady asked for us to pray the Rosary, not “cling to beads”. And trusting in God is fine as far as it goes, but since Jesus Christ has specifically asked for us to make reparation, to make of all our duties a sacrifice, perhaps we might consider obeying Him along with the trusting. The Holy Ghost has guided us through thousands of years of Divine Revelation, the importance of returning in chastened humility and repentance to obey the commands of God.  It is never too late to return to the message of Fatima!

We must do more than endure, this is a battle and we must win! Take up your Rosaries and pray as though your immortal souls depend on it! For they do and the souls of many others depend on us too. And pray to Our Mother of Perpetual Help, or Our Lady of Victory, or perhaps the Irresistible Novena the Sacred Heart of Jesus.  Whichever devotion you choose to add, please consider sticking with it on through the October Synod. This is very important.

Now is not the time to lose heart. This is the time we have been expecting, indeed, waiting for. Now is the time for us to prove our mettle — we are her children, after all! And we remember, that she “comes forth as the morning rising, fair as the moon, bright as the sun, and terrible as an army, set in array”!

The darkness, even the heart of darkness, has no hold over the Immaculata!

Please also don’t forget, the First Saturdays are so important! If you are truly unable to make them, and these chaotic times do make it next to impossible for many of us — talk with a good priest and ask if he will allow you to make your First Saturday of Reparation on another day. My priest allowed this due to some problems I’m having. Our Blessed Mother sees the thoughts of our hearts and she knows we are doing our very best to make of each day, a day of reparation and show her our love and devotion in many, many ways.

The Little Book of Infinite Love

 

This article was originally scheduled for tomorrow, but I must post it today, I simply cannot wait any longer, for my beloved granddaughters, little Maria Lúcia, who just made her First Holy Communion on Corpus Christi Sunday, and for lovely Irene and for sweet Carmen.

“Always be sure that whatever you do is done in love, for God our Father created us by love, and God the Son, our Savior, redeemed us by love, and God the Holy Ghost sustains us by love. And they have given us their love, the Immaculate Virgin Mary, to be our own dear Mother, to help us live this love in all that we do.”

“The Book of Infinite Love” is a little-known treatise written by a French Visitation nun in the nineteenth and early twentieth century. As we approach the end of the month of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, I thought you might like the following small essay from Mother Louise Margaret Claret, whose mission was to teach that the infinite love of God is manifested through the prodigious overflowing love of the Sacred Heart of Jesus through His priests.

.  .  . The religion of the Sacred Heart is not a simple devotion of sentiment; it is not even a special isolated dogma, it is the synthesis of all Catholic doctrine, of the whole Catholic moral law summed up in the love of Jesus Christ for us and of our love for Jesus Christ. There is then for us a theology of the Sacred Heart. This theology, according to St. Augustine and Bossuet, from the consideration that God is the eternal Heart, (“Deus est caritas” I John, IV, 8) finds in this Charity the purpose if not the explanation of the whole series of Christian mysteries.

. God loves: to love is to give. God has given us everything, and has given Himself to us. He commenced by giving existence to us and to all beings: that is creation!

. God loves: to love is to speak, to make oneself heard by the person who is loved, and that is Revelation, the Sacred Scriptures, God’s law!

. God loves: to love is to make oneself like the person loved; that is the Incarnation.

. God loves: to love is to save the person loved, cost what it may; to die for the person loved: that is the Redemption!

. To love is to wish to be perpetually present to the person loved: that is the Blessed Eucharist, the real presence, the altar!

. To love is to give oneself to each of those whom one loves; that is Holy Communion, the Last Supper!

. Finally, to love is to wish to make happy with oneself for ever all those whom one has loved; that is the eternal happiness of Heaven!—A vast synthesis of love, which is also a synthesis of our faith!

“As for us,” cries St. John, “we believe in the love which God has for us” (I John IV, 16). Everything is included in that. St. Francis de Sales was right when he said:  “In the Church of Jesus Christ everything belongs to love, everything is founded on love and everything is love. God, who has created man after His own image, wishes that in man, as in God, everything be regulated by love and for love.”

The devotion to the Blessed Eucharist and the devotion to the Sacred Heart are not only two sister devotions; in reality, they are only one and the same devotion. They complete each other and develop each other; they blend so perfectly together that one cannot stand without the other, and their union is absolute. Not only can one of these devotions not be prejudicial to the other but, because they complete each other and perfect each other, they also reciprocally increase each other. If we have devotion to the Sacred Heart, we will wish to find It, to adore It, to love It, to offer It our reparation and praise, and where shall we look for It but in the Blessed Eucharist where It is found eternally living?

If we love this adorable Heart, we will wish to unite ourselves to It, for love seeks union, we will wish to warm our hearts by the ardour of this divine fire, but to reach the Sacred Heart, to take hold of It, to put It in contact with our own, what shall we do? Shall we scale heaven to bear away the Heart of Jesus Who reigns triumphant in glory? There is no need to do so. We will go to the Blessed Eucharist, we will go to the tabernacle, we will take the white Host, and when we have enclosed it in our breast, we will feel the divine Heart truly beating beside our own.

The devotion to the divine Heart infallibly brings souls to the Blessed Eucharist, and faith in and devotion to the Blessed Eucharist necessarily lead souls to discover the mysteries of Infinite Love of which the divine Heart is the organ and the symbol. If we believe in the Blessed Eucharist, we believe in Love. It is the mystery of Love. But in itself love is immaterial and imperceptible; to fix our minds and our senses, we seek an outward form for love.

The Love of His Heart

This form, this sensible manifestation, is the divine Heart. The Sacred Heart, the Blessed Eucharist, Love are one and the same thing. In the tabernacle we find the Host; in the Host Jesus; in Jesus His Heart; in His Heart, Love, Infinite Love, divine Charity, God, the principle of life, living and life-giving. But still more: The ineffable mystery of the Eucharist can only be explained by Love. By the love of God, yes, but by the Love of Jesus, God and man. Now the love of Jesus is the love of His Heart; to sum up all in one word, it is His Heart; therefore the Blessed Eucharist is explained only by the Sacred Heart. The Blessed Eucharist is the sublime completion of the love of Jesus for man; it is the highest, the last expression; the paroxysm, if I may so express myself, of this incomprehensible love.

Nevertheless, without the Blessed Eucharist we could have believed in love; the Incarnation would have sufficed for that; a single drop of the bitter chalice of Passion would have been more than superabundant to prove to us that love. We would have been able to love the Heart of Jesus, we would have been under the obligation of loving It, of believing that it is sovereignly good, even if It had not gone to this divine excess of the Blessed Eucharist. But, because It has invented this marvel, how we should love this Sacred Heart so divinely tender, so inexpressibly delicate and liberal; so—shall I dare to say it—so madly and so passionately fond of Its creatures!

Yes, the Blessed Eucharist augments and inflames our love for the divine Heart. But because we know that we shall find this Sacred Heart only in the Blessed Eucharist, because we are thirsty for union with this Heart so tender and so ardent, we go to the Blessed Eucharist, we prostrate ourselves before the Blessed Sacrament, we adore the Host radiating its influence from the monstrance. We go to the Holy Table with ardent avidity; we lovingly kiss the consecrated paten on which the divine Host reposes each day. We surround with honour, respect and magnificence the tabernacle in which Jesus, living and loving, makes His dwelling.

Oh! it is impious to say that the worship of the Sacred Heart can injure devotion to the Blessed Eucharist. What! will the knowledge of Him Who gives the gift, make us despise the gift? No, the more we love the divine Heart, the truer our worship of It is, the more extensive and enlightened it is, the more also will our worship and our love for the divine Eucharist develop and grow strong.

Now, readers, this is why the ancient enemy is filled with such determination to destroy the sacred priesthood, destroy the Holy Sacrifice and replace them with pagan superstitions. He will not succeed but this will bring on a time of great suffering. Dear ones, we know the answer to this satanic assault!

Please, Pray the Rosary and confound satan and those who serve him!

† . 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.

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

Jorge and the Volcano

 

The Pan-Amazon Synod, scheduled for this October, is looming over us, rumbling and bursting with little explosions of lava and sulfurous smoke. Professor Roberto de Mattei has weighed in at Rorate, here, in which he begs the question, “Will the bishops, successors of the Apostles be silent? Will the cardinals, the Pope’s advisors in the governing of the Church be silent, in the face of this political-religious manifesto which perverts the doctrine and praxis of the Mystical Body of Christ?”

The answer would seem to be a mumbled “yes”, as the cowardly leaders of the Church acquiesce once again to the perversion of the Church in the withering reign of this Peronist pope.

I’ve been waiting to see what Sandro Magister had to say, and it was worth the wait. The Amazon Train Has Pulled Out. next Stop, Germany is a succinct explanation of the entire plan, including the “before” and “after”. Of note is this portion of the “after” which will occur in Germany, source of so many luciferian initiatives:

“. . . the synod for the Amazon will also have an “after.” And it will have it precisely in Germany.

Last March the German episcopal conference, gathered in plenary assembly in Lingen, put into the works a national synod with three preparatory “forums” on the following themes:

– “Power, participation, separation of powers,” presided over by Speyer bishop Karl-Heinz Wiesemann;
– “Sexual morality,” presided over by Osnabrück bishop Franz-Josef Bode;
– “Form of priestly life,” presided over by Münster bishop Felix Genn.

Once again the agenda is solidly Martini, and in the introductory talks of the plenary assembly in Lingen it was said “apertis verbis” that the intention is to arrive both at legitimizing homosexual acts (an unfulfilled objective of the synod on young people), and at introducing the ordination of married men in Germany as well (so no longer just in the remote outskirts of the Church like the Amazon).”

Magister’s article also contained a link to a very helpful site, Pan-Amazon Synod Watch which has been set up by the Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira Institute (IPCO) and its sister organizations, the Societies for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP). I have placed their site in our sidebar links at the right side of the page. The Pan-Amazon Synod Watch site will be valuable in the coming months, I believe. One excellent summary on that site is the article by José Antonio Ureta, The Synod at the Service of the Neo-pagan Agenda“.

In it, he examines the Synod’s Instrumentum laboris and shows it to be a total opening of the gates of the Magisterium to two pernicious forms of of Liberation Theology (LT), Indian Theology and Ecotheology. Professor Ureta’s analysis deserves to be read in full and so I will defer to him.

We are rapidly approaching the culmination of this pope’s reign — obviously Bergoglio intends to destroy the sacred priesthood and establish sodomy as a right, but these more sensational aspects of his revolution tend to overshadow the most satanic aspect, which is to destroy the papacy, the monarchical structure of the Church.

Readers, we’ve been living in the shadow of this volcano ever since Jorge Bergoglio first ascended to the See of Peter with his humble declaration to change the Church “irreversibly”. By now, many have become indifferent to the constant  rumbles and smoke of satan, the homosexual predators in high places. But eventually, volcanos do what they are meant to do. . .

This may well prove to be the significant moment we have been expecting for so long. Pray the Rosary!

“I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world”

 

Trinity Sunday, 2019.  For our accustomed post, see: Trinity Sunday.

“At that time, Jesus said to His disciples: All power is given to Me in Heaven and on earth. Going therefore, teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost, teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you. And behold I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world.”

This was really quite “un-ecumenical” of Our Lord, wasn’t it?  I’m surprised our humble pope has not corrected Our Lord for His errors. For, with these few words, Our Lord states some essentials of the faith:

The Holy Trinity
This is the Catholic Faith

  He clearly establishes His divinity: “All power is given to Me”.

  “Teach all nations”, that is, He establishes the teaching magisterium of the Church. Note that He is not instructing them to print Bibles and distribute them for each man to interpret themselves. Nor is He commanding them to preach ecology, population control, “tolerance” for perversion and marxist materialism.

  “Baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost”. In this, He establishes the first and most essential sacrament and also states the foundation of our Catholic faith, belief in the triune God. This refutes the false ecumenism of Pope Francis, which betrays Christ the King.

  “Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you.” This reinforces the teaching authority of the Church, and also proof that faith alone is not sufficient for salvation. 

  “I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world.” Christ will be with the Church through all ages. This is the basis for our hope, even in perilous times like these. 

Pope Francis continues in his efforts to dismantle the framework of the Church, especially by attacking the elements listed above,. Today, in the United States of America, we also celebrate Father’s Day and so we consider the Trinity, particularly the role of God as our Eternal Father. It is natural that those who attack the dogma of the Most Holy Trinity from within the Church itself, should also attack the family, and even the hierarchical structure of the Church itself.

This three pronged attack, on the dogma of the Trinity, the hierarchy of the Church and the family, arises from within the Church, even from the very apex of the Church, from the man who claims to be Vicar of Christ, Pope Francis. Why is this happening? What can we expect and what must be done?

It is happening because of the unholy trinity of age-old sins, i.e.,  the concupiscence of the flesh, and the concupiscence of the eyes, and the pride of life , which is not of the Father, but is of the world. (1 John, 2, 16). These sins have become a deluge in the church under the corrupt and disobedient popes.

Our Lord Jesus Christ founded His Church as an absolute monarchy, with a fallible human being at the head, as His Vicar. This fragile institution is only strong insofar as the Vicar of Christ relies on Him whose Vicar he is to sustain and guide him. Almighty God in His Providence, has designed this so that we may — must! —  work with Him to keep the Church strong. In brief, we get the Pope — and the Church — that we deserve. How can we expect the pope to be faithful, if we ourselves are indifferent to God’s law?

The Vision of Tuy, 1929

 

“The moment has come … ”

With these words, Our Lady of Fatima began the most significant and mystical vision of all the Marian apparitions when she appeared to Sister Lúcia at Tuy on June 13, 1929.

In this post we will attempt to understand the vision and its message for us today in light of the Apocalypse and recent events.

Previously, in Apocalypse 12 we saw that great red dragon, whom Pope Leo XIII referred to as, “the ancient serpent, who is the devil and Satan” go to war against the Woman clothed with the Sun, and prepare to make war with “her seed”, the faithful Church.  Chapter 12 ends:

And the dragon was angry against the woman: and went to make war with the rest of her seed, who keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.  And he stood upon the sand of the sea.

Now, we arrive at Apocalypse 13, which reveals the strategy of the dragon, which is satan. In her book, “Beyond Politics”, Solange Hertz describes the scene for us,

Before St. John’s eyes a diabolic trinity began taking shape which appears to be a blasphemous parody of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost. The Apostle sees a beast coming up out of the sea, followed by another beast coming from the earth. These two are joined in a close relationship with each other and with the Dragon, who is, of course, Satan himself, and who animates and directs them in such a way that the three operate as one. St. John saw the Dragon give the first beast “his own strength and great power,” so that the reprobates “adored the dragon which gave power to the beast.” The second beast also derives his power from the Dragon, but through the medium of the first beast. We are told, “He executed all the power of the former beast in his sight; and he caused the earth and them that dwell therein to adore the first beast,” just as this first beast had caused them to adore the Dragon. Thus the Dragon mimics the role of God the Father in the Blessed Trinity, source of both the Son and the Holy Ghost, whose parts are played by the two Beasts in the diabolic threesome.

What does St. John tell us of this second beast, the one who arises from the earth, which is symbolic of the Church? 

“And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns, like a lamb, and he spoke as a dragon. And he executed all the power of the former beast in his sight; and he caused the earth, and them that dwell therein, to adore the first beast, whose wound to death was healed.” (Apocalypse 13, 11-12)

Thus, we see that this second beast appears as a lamb, but “he spoke as a dragon”. This warns us that although the beast masquerades as the leader of Christians, he has a diabolic agenda. The reader will draw his own conclusions. For now, we simply point out that St. John’s vision of the diabolical trinity also represents a  reversal of Christendom.  In the diabolical vision, the State derives from Satan and then, the so-called “Church” (one world religion of man) derives from the State and serves the State, not God. This is the direct reversal of Christendom in which Christ reigns over all. This vision is the same as that proposed by Pope Paul VI at the close of Vatican II and most thoroughly exemplified by the new Bergoglian church, which occupies the Vatican and seeks now to draw all  into its deadly grasp, the Franciscans of the Immaculate, the Sovereign Military Order of the Knights of Malta, and reached for the Society of St. Pius X (albeit unsuccessfully!). And who is there to withstand him?

Let us compare that vision of St. John’s with the remarkable vision granted to Sister Lucia at Tuy, June 13, 1929.

The Vision of Tuy

The moment has come …

 

Suddenly a supernatural light illumined the whole chapel and on the altar appeared a cross of light which reached to the ceiling.  In a brighter part could be seen, on the upper part of the Cross, the face of a man and His body to the waist;  On His breast was an equally luminous dove,  and nailed to the cross, the body of another man. 

A little below the waist, suspended in mid-air, was to be seen a Chalice and a large Host on to which fell some drops of Blood from the face of the Crucified and from a wound in His breast. These drops ran down over the Host and fell into the Chalice. 

Under the right arm of the Cross was Our Lady with Her Immaculate Heart in Her hand … (It was Our Lady of Fatima with Her Immaculate Heart… in Her left hand… without a sword or roses, but with a crown of thorns and flames…) 

Under the left arm (of the Cross), some big letters, as it were of crystal-clear water running down over the Altar, formed these words: “Grace and Mercy”.

“I understood that it was the mystery of the Most Holy Trinity that was shown to me …”

Then Our Lady said to me:
