Insight from St. Bridget

 

Remember those good old days when we read the Rorate headline, “The Horror, the horror”, after Bergoglio’s election? Looking back, those were the good days, compared with the horrifying reality of the Bergoglian church. The following are a scattering of paraphrased quotes from St. Bridget’s revelations  I compiled in the first months after his election when I was preparing an e-book of prophecies that might pertain to the new Bergoglian papacy. The project had to be set aside but lately, reading them again, I was amazed how the words St. Bridget attributes to Our Lord when  read within the context of the Message of Fatima fit so perfectly.  Think of this, Our Lady of Fatima’s plea to us,  “People must amend their lives and ask pardon for their sins … They must not offend Our Lord any more for He is already too much offended.”

It makes me wonder what conversations Our Lord and His spouse have now, in these sad times? What could St. Bridget tell us today?

From The Prophecies and Revelations of Saint Bridget of Sweden

 

“The words of Christ to His bride about a false man, who is called an enemy of God, and about his hypocrisy and all his characteristics.

On the outside he appears to be decorated with good habits, wisdom and bravery in the service and honor of Me, but he is by no means like that. For if the helmet were removed from his head, that is, if it were shown to people how he really is spiritually in his soul, he would be uglier than all men.

His brain is bare because his foolish customs and frivolity clearly demonstrate to good men that he is unworthy of such an honor. For if My wisdom pleased him, he would understand how much his honor is greater than others, thereby clothing himself in the most rigorous of conduct and divine virtues as compared to others.

Instead of having the humility due to his high dignity in being a light for others to teach them good things, he only wants to hear about his own praise and glory, thereby becoming so prideful that he only wants to be called great and good by everyone.

All his thoughts are turned to the present instead of the eternal. He thinks about how to please men and about the requirements for the needs of the flesh, but not about how he may please me and benefit souls.

He has lost all rational discretion whereby he might distinguish between sin and virtue, between worldly honor and eternal honor, between worldly and eternal riches, between the short pleasures of the world and the eternal pleasures.

All the veneration he should have for me, with the beauty of the virtues whereby he might please me, are entirely dead in the service of me. The imitation of my works and the preaching of my words is totally fallen off from him so that nothing remains in him except his gluttonous, insatiable desire to be involved in worldly affairs.

His chest is full of worms, because in his chest, where the remembrance of my suffering and my commandments should be, there is only a care for the things of the world with the desire and greed of the world, which are like worms devouring his conscience so that he does not think of spiritual things.

In his heart, where I would wish to dwell and my love should be, there now sits the most evil scorpion with a stinging tail and an enticing face and tongue; because pleasing and reasonable words proceed from his mouth, but his heart is full of injustice and deceit, because he does not care if the church he is supervising gets destroyed, as long as he can follow his own will.

His arms are like two snakes, because in his malice he reaches out his arms to the simple-minded and calls them to himself with simplicity, but, when he gets a suitable opportunity, he causes them to fall pitifully. Like a snake, he coils himself into a ring, because he hides his malice and unrighteousness, so that barely anyone can understand his treacherous plans.

He is like the most vile snake in my sight, for just as the snake is more detestable than any other animal, so is he more ugly in my sight than any other man, since he counts my justice as nothing and holds me to be as a man who is unwilling to judge righteously.

His back should be like ivory since his deeds should be more mighty and pure than others in order to be able to better carry the weak through his patience and his example of a good life. But now he is like coal, because he is too impatient to endure a single word for my honor, unless he benefits from it. Yet he seems to be mighty to the world.

Therefore, when he thinks he stands, he will fall, since he is as hideous and lifeless as coal before me and my saints.

His intestines stink, because his thoughts and desires smell like rotting flesh before me with a stench that no one can tolerate. Neither can any of my saints tolerate him, but everyone turns his face away from him and demands a judgment over him.

His feet are dead. His two feet are his two dispositions towards me, that is, his will to make amends for the sins he has done and his will to do good deeds. But these feet are altogether dead in him, because all the marrow of love is consumed in him and nothing is left in him except the hardened bones. And in this way he stands before me.

However, as long as the soul is with the body, he can find my mercy.

Explanation:

Saint Lawrence appeared and said: “This bishop (of Rome?) tolerates and pretends not to notice the incontinence of the clergy, and he liberally distributes the goods of the Church to the rich and shows love only toward himself and his own friends. Therefore, I declare to him that the lightest cloud now has ascended into heaven, but dark smoke of fire overshadows it so that it cannot be seen by many. This cloud is the prayer of the Mother of God for the Holy Church. The fire of greed, ungodliness, and unrighteousness darken it so much that the mercy of the Mother of God cannot easily enter the hearts of the wretched.

Therefore, let the bishop quickly turn to the divine love by correcting himself and his subordinates, admonishing them with his good example and word, and leading them to a better life. Otherwise, he will feel the vengeance and justice of the Divine Judge, and his church will be purged by fire and the sword and afflicted by plundering and tribulation so that it will be a long time before anyone consoles her.”

The words of Our Lord Jesus Christ to the Pope: O head of my Church, who sit on my seat which I gave to Peter and his successors to sit on with a threefold dignity and power: First, so that they would have the power of binding and loosing souls from their sins. Second, so that they would open Heaven for the penitent. Third, so that that they would close Heaven to the damned and to those who despise my Law.

But you, who should be healing souls and presenting them to me, you are in truth a murderer of souls. I appointed Peter as shepherd and guardian of my sheep. But you, however, scatter and wound them.

You are worse than Lucifer. for you do not only kill me by driving me off from yourself by your bad deeds, but you also kill souls by your bad example. I redeemed the souls with my blood and entrusted them to you as to a faithful friend, but you deliver them back again to the enemy from whom I redeemed them.

You are more unrighteous than Pilate. for you not only judge me as if I were a powerless lord and worthy of no good thing, no, you also judge and condemn the souls of the innocent and let the guilty go free without any rebuke.

You are more cruel than Judas for you not only sell me, but also the souls of my chosen men for your own shameful profit and vain name’s sake.

Then our Lord said to him: “The sword of my severity will go into your body; it shall enter at the top of your head and penetrate you so deeply and violently that it can never be drawn out. Your chair will sink like a heavy stone and never stop before it comes to the lowest of depths. Your fingers, that is, your assistants and advisers, will burn in the inextinguishable sulfurous fire.

Your arms, that is, your office-holders, who should have reached out for the help and benefit of souls but instead reached out for worldly honor and profit, will be judged to the torment and suffering of which David speaks: ‘His sons shall be fatherless and his wife a widow and others shall take his property.’ Who is ‘his wife’ if not the soul which shall be excluded from the glory of Heaven and be widowed and lose God? ‘His sons’, that is, the virtues they appeared to have, and my simple and humble men who were under them, shall be separated from them. Their honor and property will be given to others, and they will inherit eternal shame instead of their dignity and glory.

Their headgear will sink down into the filth of hell, and they will never be able to get up out of it. Just as they rose above others through their honor and pride, so in hell they will sink so much deeper than others so that it will be impossible for them to ever stand up again. Their limbs, that is, all the priests who followed and helped them in wickedness, will be cut off from them and severed just like the wall that is torn down where not a single stone is left upon another stone and the cement no longer adheres to the stones.

No mercy will come to them, for my love will never warm them nor restore or build them up into an eternal house in Heaven, but instead they shall be excluded from all good and endlessly tormented with their headmen and leaders.

In the following passage, St. Bridget describes a dialogue between God the Father and the Son and the Blessed Virgin and Angels over the fate of the Church occupied by the foul man described above..

“God the Father’s words before the host of the kingdom of Heaven, and the answer of the Son and Mother to the Father asking for mercy for the daughter, that is, the Church.God the Father spoke while the whole host of heaven was listening, and said: “Before you all, I complain over giving my daughter to a man who tortures her greatly and without measure, crushing her feet in the stocks so severely that all the marrow has gone out of her feet.

”The Son answered Him: “Father, she is the one I redeemed with my blood and espoused to myself, but now she has been brutally violated.

”Then the Mother of God spoke and said: “You are my God and my Lord, and Your blessed Son’s limbs were enclosed within my body; He is Your true Son and my true Son. I refused you nothing on earth. Have mercy on Your daughter for the sake of my prayers.

”Thereafter the angels spoke, saying:  “We all rejoiced when your daughter went forth from you, but now we are rightly sad, because she has been given into the hands of the worst man who insults her with all kinds of mocking and abuse. Have mercy on her for the sake of Your great mercy, for her misery is very great, and there is no one to console and save her but You Lord, God Almighty.

”Then God the Father answered the Son, saying: “O my Son, your grievance is my grievance, your word is my word, your deeds are my deeds. You are in me and I am in you inseparably. Your will be done!”Then He said to the Mother of the Son: “Since you did not refuse me anything on earth, I will not refuse you anything in heaven, and your will shall be fulfilled.”And then He said to the angels: “You are my friends, and the flame of your love burns in my heart. Therefore, I shall have mercy on my daughter (the Church) for the sake of your prayers.”

Taken from “The Prophecies and Revelations of St. Bridget of Sweden”, Chapters 23, 24, 41. No longer available from archive.org. Many good Catholic books are being removed from Archive. A similar version is available from Amazon.

The vivid language which Saint Bridget attributes to Christ is probably a shock to some today, but it is an indication of Our Lord’s extreme displeasure at the behavior of those who are so brutally violating the Holy Bride of Christ.

And God the Father of mercy will at last have mercy on His daughter the Church.

  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!

† St. Joseph, protect our families, protect our priests!

Pray the Rosary – so many souls depend on it!

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:

The Judas Pope

On Maundy Thursday, Pope Francis confirmed his devotion to St. Judas by confiding to his marxist friend Eugenio Scalfari that there is no Hell.  As faithful Catholics all over the world were beginning  the holiest time of the year, the Triduum, Here are his words to Scalfari, the ancient atheist who is the Humble Pope’s® dear friend:

“Those who do not repent and cannot therefore be forgiven disappear. There is no hell, there is the disappearance of sinful souls.”

Pope Francis, who claims he is  “by the will of Christ Himself – the supreme Pastor and Teacher of all the faithful”; and that he enjoys, “supreme, full, immediate, and universal ordinary power in the Church”, thus effectively betrayed Christ Himself and two thousand years of Catholic teaching.

“Son of perdition”
Some of the more perceptive commenters have noted the coincidence (?) – the Passion of Christ began with the betrayal of Jesus by Judas on Maundy Thursday and now this unfortunate Pope, another “son of perdition”, sows confusion among the faithful on, of all days, Maundy Thursday. The Church, Mystical Body of Christ is thus betrayed by her earthly Shepherd, beginning the deepest stage of the Passion of the Church. Note Christ’s words in this regard:

“Holy Father, keep them in Thy name whom Thou has given me; that they may be one, as we also are.  While I was with them, I kept them in Thy name. Those whom Thou gavest me have I kept; and none of them is lost, but the son of perdition, that the scripture may be fulfilled.  (John 17,12)

All over the world, forces are aligning for this momentous battle and we will discuss this in more detail soon, God willing. But to get us prepared, please  review this particular post; for it gives some indispensable background for what is to follow.

The Judas Complex and Pope Francis

Odd, isn’t it that Pope Francis has such a tender spot for Judas the betrayer of Christ?  In Monday’s (April  11, 2016) homily at Msgr. Ricca’s residence, Pope Francis opined, “It hurts when I read that small passage from the Gospel of Matthew, when Judas, who has repented, goes to the priests and says: ‘I have sinned’ and wants to give … and gives them the coins. ‘Who cares! – they say to him: it’s none of our business!’ They closed their hearts before this poor, repentant man, who did not know what to do. And he went and hanged himself.” (Vatican Radio) [Note: Pope Francis really did call Judas a “poor, repentant man” !]

Solve et Coagula

Motto of the Bishop of Rome: ¡Hagan lío!
That is, “Raise Hell!”

Solve et Coagula is a formula associated with occult, alchemical freemasonry and is also reflected in the motto of the current occupant of the See of Peter, ” ¡Hagan lío!” Or, it can be expressed another way: in Hegelian  terms, “Thesis, antithesis and synthesis”.  All those terms could be applied to the work of  this Pontiff, who is now “humbly” correcting the words of Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself. In the Bergoglian Reformation words mean whatever His Holiness intends them to mean and so now, life means death.

Today, a reader alerted us to an informative article on the new focus of the  re-constituted Pontifical Academy for Life. The Humble One® dissolved the Pontifical Academy for Life and rebuilt it into his own image. Now,  in typical marxist fashion, the Academy for Life  is working to extinguish life  at both ends of the spectrum.

Judie Brown’s American Life League carried the following article by Dr. Elizabeth Wickham of Lifetree (link in our sidebar).

Palliative Care, the Real Story

By Elizabeth Wickham, PhD

Because of the new appointments to the Pontifical Academy for Life, its workshops and conferences in 2017, plus the one planned for winter 2018, my comments here are directed to the low-profile wing of the euthanasia movement known as the Third Path, which relies on the new field of palliative medicine. Today’s palliative care is falsely advertised as the moral alternative to physician-assisted suicide. Having studied this low-profile wing for over 15 years, I believe the activities at the Pontifical Academy for Life are very troubling.

The New and Improved Jesus

More news from the Bergoglio Reformation, this time on the Pope’s new and improved Jesus.

In this morning’s post, Sandro Magister reported on  our Humble Pope® and his interviewing friend, Eugenio Scalfari who recently wrote of him  in “La Repubblica”. As you are aware, Pope Bergoglio likes to give off-the-cuff interviews to Scalfari, in which no records are kept except that which Scalfari  jots down after the fact, ostensibly relying on his 93 year old memory. Thus allowing for the convenient modernist ambiguity and deniability, although to date Pope Francis has not denied these interviews no matter how scandalous. The following quotes are from Magister.

Scalfari’s La Repubblica article was dated October 9, and in it Scalfari spoke of the “revolution” of this pontificate,

“Pope Francis has abolished the places where souls were supposed to go after death: hell, purgatory, heaven. The idea he holds is that souls dominated by evil and unrepentant cease to exist, while those that have been redeemed from evil will be taken up into beatitude, contemplating God.”

Observing immediately afterward:

“The universal judgment that is in the tradition of the Church therefore becomes devoid of meaning. It remains a simple pretext that has given rise to splendid paintings in the history of art. Nothing other than this.” (Sandro Magister)

* * *

Magister continues:

“There is in his preaching, however, something that tends toward a practical overshadowing of the final judgment and of the opposite destinies of blessed and damned.”

On Wednesday, October 11, at the general audience in Saint Peter’s Square, Francis said that such a judgment is not to be feared, because “at the end of our history there is the merciful Jesus,” and therefore “everything will be saved. Everything.”

In the text distributed to the journalists accredited to the Holy See, this last word, “everything,” was emphasized in boldface.”

A Friend of the Devil is a Friend of Mine…

By their friends…

 

We have often discussed the role of the “errors of Russia” in relation to the Message of Fatima, the Apocalypse and the current papacy. Lately, the Bergoglian avalache has been picking up speed and this morning, Sandro Magister pointed out some interesting developments in the reign of this unfortunate pope. The following excerpts are brief, for the full article please see Sandro Magister,  The Communists the Pope Likes. And Vice Versa“.

Magister begins by noting

… the collaboration with “Avvenire,” the newspaper of the Italian episcopal conference, of the satirical comics author Sergio Staino, with a Sunday strip entitled “Hello, Jesus!”

Here the surprise lies in the fact that Staino is an unwavering communist, was a “flower child” and a champion of free love, was until a few months ago the director of “L’Unità,” the defunct newspaper of the Italian communist party and then of the parties that succeeded it, and is the honorary president of the UAAR, the Union of Atheists and Rationalist Agnostics.

The absentminded Jesus of his strips still lives in Nazareth with Joseph and Mary, gives his father a hand in the woodshop, but his head is already elsewhere, looking to the time when he will leave to finally become – in Staino’s words – “the first of the socialists, the first to fight for the poor.”

Interviewed in “Avvenire” on the day of his debut, Staino recounted that some time ago, when Pope Francis, during a “long telephone conversation” with Slow Food founder Carlo Petrini, was told that back in 1948 Staino’s mother had been denied sacramental absolution for having voted for the communist party, the pope burst out laughing: “Tell the mother of this friend of yours that I will give her that absolution.

September 1, 1910

Today, we begin September by celebrating Pope Francis!

Yes, it is time that we honor the man, his deep and merciful thoughts and his actions by which it is said a man may best be known. On this day 107 years ago, in his Oath Against Modernism, Pope St. Pius X foretold this man, Pope Francis, our first truly humble and merciful pope, and wrote of him. Indeed, his great encyclical Pascendi Domenici Gregis, written in September, 1907 is filled with prophecies about our little Argentinian treasure – reading the words of St. Pius X, it is hard to believe that he did not have our beloved Bergoglio’s illustrious words on Love, “Amoris Laetitia” in mind as he wrote it.

Forgive my sarcasm; I arose this morning to find yet another update on the assault to the faith by Pope Francis the Humble® – covered in articles by Edward Pentin here and Rorate here . One would think that after four hellish years, I would learn to avoid news of this pope before my coffee….

Let’s take a look at a better time, when we had the brave and clear truths spoken by our truly Holy Father, one worthy of the name, Pope St. Pius X, who presciently warned of the False Prophet and his followers who prowl about the Church seeking  the ruin of souls.

“The purpose of this is, then, not that dogma may be tailored according to what seems better and more suited to the culture of each age; rather, that the absolute and immutable truth preached by the apostles from the beginning may never be believed to be different, may never be understood in any other way.” (Pope St. Pius X)

The last truly saintly Pope was Pius X, who promulgated the Oath Against Modernism on September 1, 1910, 107 years ago today. It is instructive to review this oath, which was abolished by Paul VI and is so widely scorned, reviled or simply ignored by those who currently occupy the visible Church today.

Saint Pius X, pray for us, pray for our priests!

With the death of this holy pope, the dark force of modernism was once again free to poison the faith, While ostensibly orthodox, Pope Benedict XV dismantled St. Pius’s Sodalitium Pianum, the network established to assure orthodoxy in the seminaries. Subsequent popes also contributed their efforts to undermining orthodoxy in sundry ways. Although these popes gave lip service to Our Lady’s message at Fatima, none actually went so far as to obey her. And so, modernism flourished under even those pre-Vatican II popes who appeared to be orthodox, until it burst into florid putrescence in the revolutionary Second Vatican Ecumenical Council.

As you review the Oath Against Modernism that follows, bear in mind that every single Conciliar Pope from John XXIII through Benedict XVI had originally sworn this solemn oath, which of course, was violated by those same popes during and after Vatican II. Every single pope until Francis, the quintessential modernist pope. The very apotheosis of Vatican II.

“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. By their fruits you shall know them. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?Even so every good tree brings forth good fruit, and the evil tree brings forth evil fruit. A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can an evil tree bring forth good fruit.” (Matt 7, 15-18)

In the re-presentation below, we have taken the liberty of numbering the points and emphasising some of the more pertinent. The original is available here.

 THE OATH AGAINST MODERNISM

To be sworn to by all clergy, pastors, confessors, preachers, religious superiors, and professors in philosophical-theological seminaries.

“I . . . . firmly embrace and accept each and every definition that has been set forth and declared by the unerring teaching authority of the Church, especially those principal truths which are directly opposed to the errors of this day.

  1. And first of all, I profess that God, the origin and end of all things, can be known with certainty by the natural light of reason from the created world (see Rom. 1:90), that is, from the visible works of creation, as a cause from its effects, and that, therefore, His existence can also be demonstrated.
  2. Secondly, I accept and acknowledge the external proofs of revelation, that is, divine acts and especially miracles and prophecies as the surest signs of the divine origin of the Christian religion and I hold that these same proofs are well adapted to the understanding of all eras and all men, even of this time.
  3. Thirdly, I believe with equally firm faith that the Church, the guardian and teacher of the revealed word, was personally instituted by the real and historical Christ when He lived among us, and that the Church was built upon Peter, the prince of the apostolic hierarchy, and his successors for the duration of time.
  4. Fourthly, I sincerely hold that the doctrine of faith was handed down to us from the apostles through the orthodox Fathers in exactly the same meaning and always in the same purport. Therefore, I entirely reject the heretical misrepresentation that dogmas evolve and change from one meaning to another different from the one which the Church held previously. I also condemn every error according to which, in place of the divine deposit which has been given to the spouse of Christ to be carefully guarded by her, there is put a philosophical figment or product of a human conscience that has gradually been developed by human effort and will continue to develop indefinitely.
  5. Fifthly, I hold with certainty and sincerely confess that faith is not a blind sentiment of religion welling up from the depths of the subconscious under the impulse of the heart and the motion of a will trained to morality; but faith is a genuine assent of the intellect to truth received by hearing from an external source. By this assent, because of the authority of the supremely truthful God, we believe to be true that which has been revealed and attested to by a personal God, our creator and lord.
  6. Furthermore, with due reverence, I submit and adhere with my whole heart to the condemnations, declarations, and all the prescripts contained in the encyclical Pascendi and in the decree Lamentabili, especially those concerning what is known as the history of dogmas.
  7. I also reject the error of those who say that the faith held by the Church can contradict history, and that Catholic dogmas, in the sense in which they are now understood, are irreconcilable with a more realistic view of the origins of the Christian religion.
  8. I also condemn and reject the opinion of those who say that a well-educated Christian assumes a dual personality-that of a believer and at the same time of a historian, as if it were permissible for a historian to hold things that contradict the faith of the believer, or to establish premises which, provided there be no direct denial of dogmas, would lead to the conclusion that dogmas are either false or doubtful.
  9. Likewise, I reject that method of judging and interpreting Sacred Scripture which, departing from the tradition of the Church, the analogy of faith, and the norms of the Apostolic See, embraces the misrepresentations of the rationalists and with no prudence or restraint adopts textual criticism as the one and supreme norm.
  10. Furthermore, I reject the opinion of those who hold that a professor lecturing or writing on a historico-theological subject should first put aside any preconceived opinion about the supernatural origin of Catholic tradition or about the divine promise of help to preserve all revealed truth forever; and that they should then interpret the writings of each of the Fathers solely by scientific principles, excluding all sacred authority, and with the same liberty of judgment that is common in the investigation of all ordinary historical documents.
  11. Finally, I declare that I am completely opposed to the error of the modernists who hold that there is nothing divine in sacred tradition; or what is far worse, say that there is, but in a pantheistic sense, with the result that there would remain nothing but this plain simple fact-one to be put on a par with the ordinary facts of history-the fact, namely, that a group of men by their own labor, skill, and talent have continued through subsequent ages a school begun by Christ and His apostles.
  12. I firmly hold, then, and shall hold to my dying breath the belief of the Fathers in the charism of truth, which certainly is, was, and always will be in the succession of the episcopacy from the apostles.

The purpose of this is, then, not that dogma may be tailored according to what seems better and more suited to the culture of each age; rather, that the absolute and immutable truth preached by the apostles from the beginning may never be believed to be different, may never be understood in any other way.

I promise that I shall keep all these articles faithfully, entirely, and sincerely, and guard them inviolate, in no way deviating from them in teaching or in any way in word or in writing. Thus I promise, this I swear, so help me God.”

After Vatican II, Pope Paul VI (who had, himself, sworn this very Oath) abolished the Oath. The post-Vatican II Catholic Church then, is built on the shifting sands of Modernism, which is a heresy. 

This is the Age of Apostasy, and Pope Francis is bringing us to its calamitous close. The chastisement will only be ended by the Immaculate Mother of God, through a pope who is chastened, truly humble and obedient in performing the long-awaited  Consecration of Russia with the surviving Bishops.

 Please remember, pray the Rosary and confound satan and all his works and pomps.

  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!

~ by evensong for love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary and the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ, King.
Vouchsafe that I may praise thee, O Sacred Virgin! Give me strength against thine enemies!

The Gates of Hell

“Organizers …  kept the church doors closed tightly during Bonino’s talk to prevent the sound of prayer from entering the church.” (Lifesite News)

Why were Catholics shut out of their own church for offering prayers of reparation, while abortionist Emma Bonino was honored within the church? Who is Emma Bonino? Pope Francis calls her  a “forgotten great” and has commended her support of unbridled islamic invasion of Europe. In her talk at the church,  Bonino asserted  the flood of immigrants is  necessary to supplement Italy’s low birthrate, although she is silent regarding her role in the death of Italy’s future.

This brings to mind St. Padre Pio’s prophetic quote,

“The day that people lose their horror for abortion will be the most terrible day for humanity. Abortion is not only a homicide but also a suicide. … The suicide of the human race will be understood by those who will see the earth populated by the elderly and depopulated of children: burnt as a desert,”  (St. Padre Pio)

Let’s destroy the family!

Indeed, Bonino, from a small start with her death-dealing bicycle pump, and her own abortion, can claim magnificent success: already over 6 million Italian babies have been eliminated.  As she led the feminist revolution in Italy in the mid-seventies,  Bonino’s rallying cry was, “No longer wives, mothers and daughters! Let’s destroy the family!(Lifesite News)

Catholic media report that the Bishop responsible for the church which hosted Bonino was silent. Of course he was. Pope Francis is not so merciful if one dares to assert the Catholic faith against his cronies.  And so we see that under the Bishop of Rome, within the church  the culture of death and corruption reigns:  Victor Fernandez, Luigi Capozzi, Battista Ricca, Emma Bonino,  within the church and the doors tightly  shut against the prayers of the faithful. Thus we see now the “sacrilege, outrage and indifference which so offend Our Lord”, and St. Michael, the Angel of Fatima warned about.  And so we too pray with those cast out from the occupied Church.

“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 the tabernacles of the world, in reparation for all the sacrileges, outrages and indifferences by which He Himself is offended. And by the infinite merits of His Most Sacred Heart, and the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I beg of Thee the conversion of poor sinners.”

Lethal Wounds Festering

“The lethal wound festering in the very body of the holy church”,  is a reference to priestly impurity; a  pungent description written by St. Peter Damien († 1072) in his monumental work, The Book of Gomorrah.

A reader pointed out that it has been a very long while since we had an update on Pope Francis and the clerical pederasty crisis. As it happens, I had been about to post the following, but noticed that several excellent blogs have bested me, most notably Mr. Atila Guimaraes at Tradition in Action. I hope you’ll read his articles if you have missed them. One article recounted how a notorious priest abuser, Fr. Inzoli, was defrocked under Pope Benedict XVI, but was “mercifully” reinstated by Pope Francis. Of course, the man went on to offend more and now has met with civil sanctions. Isn’t it strange how selective Bergoglian mercy is? Never hampered by rigidity!

And so, belatedly, we offer our post on the progress of “Zero Tolerance” in the Bergoglian Church.

Thank heavens for our good and humble Pope Francis who early on in his ministry as the Vicar of Christ on earth assured us,

“I feel compelled to personally take on all the evil that some priests – quite a few in number, (although) obviously not compared to the number of all priests – to personally ask for forgiveness for the damage they have done for having sexually abused children,” he told members of the International Catholic Child Bureau.

“The church is aware of this … personal, moral damage carried out by men of the church, and we will not take one step backward with regards to how we will deal with this problem, and to the sanctions that must be imposed.

“On the contrary, we have to be even stronger. Because you cannot interfere with children,” (Reuters, April 11, 2014)

Catholics all over the world rejoiced that at last, we had a “zero tolerance pope”  as he himself proclaimed on May 26, 2014; although several of us crabby old trads took a more jaundiced view, noting his deep affection for his dear friend Msgr. Ricca.

But then came a disheartening deluge of actions which belied this Pope’s resolute stand against sodomitical clerics. We have posted on Pope Francis’s proclivities for corrupt priests and prelates in numerous articles, see “The Figure of a Woman, Anticipating 2017“, “The Wrath of the Lavender Mafia”,  The Vatican’s Lavender Heel“, and “The Danneels Effect“.

And so, we were aware of the Pope’s favoritism towards priests who were openly supportive of homosexuals in the consecrated life. The list is long, from Ricca, to Dominican Father Timothy Radcliffe (who has compared sodomy to the Blessed Sacrament),  to Bishop “Tucho – Heal Me with Your Mouth” Fernandez, here, his friend who helped him write Amoris laetitia. And then there’s  Cardinal de Kesel, who is in a class all by himself, but we will deal with him later.

For now, let’s let Anne Barrett Doyle of Bishop Accountability fill us in on the most egregious example of Pope Francis ignoring and allowing priestly sex abuse of deaf children in their care. According to Doyle’s  article here, Pope Francis ignored pleas from several deaf persons who had been abused at the Antonio Provolo Institute (for education and care of deaf children) in Verona, Italy in 2014.

The abusers in what has tragically become a modern  tradition, were simply transferred to Argentina, where they happily set up shop and proceeded to do what they do best, abuse the bodies and souls of those poor children who are entrusted to them.

From Bishop Accountability:

Argentine authorities arrested this week Father Nicola Corradi, S.M., an Italian priest reported to the Vatican in 2008 or 2009 and again in 2014 by deaf survivors in Verona, Italy. Now 82, Corradi is accused of a range of more recent abuses in Argentina, including forcing hearing-impaired children, ages 10-12, to have oral sex with each other. The alleged crimes occurred at the Antonio Provolo Institute for Deaf Children in the Mendoza province of Argentina.

Authorities charged Corradi, and four other adults, including Rev. Horacio Hugo Corbacho S.M., of molesting eight children at the school. Since the arrest, a total of around 60 children have been identified as possible victims.

In May 2014, an Italian survivors’ group issued a public plea (see 1, 2 and 3) to Pope Francis to bring to justice Corradi and 15 or so other reported child molesters who had worked at Istituto Provolo, a school for deaf children in Verona, Italy. The survivors’ plea to the Pope included the alarming news that Corradi and three other alleged Verona abusers were currently working at the order’s two schools for deaf children in Argentina (one in La Plata and the other in Mendoza).

As Supreme Shepherd, Francis sets the standard, and so the abuse flares again. For those of you who read us regularly, the foregoing comes as no surprise.  In Nov., 2015 we wrote about Pope Francis’s promotion of Archbishop de Kesel in “Appallingly Clear“. But since that post was written,  Pope Francis has made him  Cardinal de Kesel.

Presage of Victory?

An interesting thing happened on October 7, the day we honor Our Lady by her preferred title, Our Lady of the Rosary. You surely remember that 99 years ago, on October 13, 1917, our Blessed Mother identified herself as Our Lady of the Rosary in her last visit to Fatima.

Our Lady of the Rosary has won many battles against enemies of the Church. The earliest that I have found was the victory of Simon de Montfort on September 12, 1213 over the albigensian heretics who were in many respects similar to the neo-gnostics of modern times. Montfort’s mere 700 knights were victorious over many thousands of albigensians because Saint Dominic had taught them the power of the Rosary and had prayed for their success the entire time they fought. After their victory, Simon de Montfort established a Chapel to Our Lady of the Rosary at the Church of Saint-Jacques. Then there was the great victory of Lepanto where Catholic forces empowered by the holy Rosary trounced the muslim Turks and sent them running, thus saving Christendom from annihilation at the hands of the “religion of peace”. Even as recently as 1964, in Brazil, the power of the Rosary was used successfully to rout a pro-communist dictator after Cardinal de Barros Camara and Dona Amelia Bastos led Catholic women in a Fatima-inspired Rosary Crusade. Ah, but that was before the Springtime of Vatican II, wasn’t it?

Yes, the Rosary, when combined with reparation and a firm will to prevail for the glory of God, will conquer all enemies. At present we do not yet see it being used effectively, but perhaps we may before long. The Rosary and Reparation Crusade of the Society of St. Pius X is proceeding and even many who are not supporters of the Society, but simply concerned diocesan Catholics are joining in. Our Lady, as we have been assured by Sister Lucia, has promised us that nothing we ask for by this means will be denied.

“The Rosary is the prayer that always accompanies my life; It is also the prayer of the simple and the saints … it is the prayer of my heart.”

As Eponymous Flower reported,  for her feast day Pope Francis “honored” her with his tweet, “The Rosary is the prayer that always accompanies my life; It is also the prayer of the simple and the saints … it is the prayer of my heart.”

And we know that what the Holy Father says is true because as he himself told us in 2014, he snatched the rosary from the hands of the body of his dead confessor, saying, “give me half your mercy.” He keeps it in a pouch under his cassock, perhaps near his heart? So who says that modernists do not love the Rosary?

And so we have another example of lightning striking the dome St. Peter’s on the same day of the Pope’s tweet to honor Our Lady of the Rosary. That makes twice in recent times, and never before in recorded history. The last time was on the feast day of Our Lady of Lourdes, February 11, 2013, when the St. Gallen Group triumphed with the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI. Funny how these episodes correlate with modernist popes and Our Lady’s feast days.

It does give one pause. If things run in threes, we might ask what is in store for December 8th.

Please, pray the Rosary and confound satan and all 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.

~ by evensong, for love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Vouchsafe that I may praise thee, O Sacred Virgin. Give me strength against thine enemies.
