Luther’s Pope

And now, several generations after the disastrous “Springtime of Vatican II”,  comes Luther’s own pope, the pope of surprises. Who will tell him that these surprises are stale?

I think that the intentions of Martin Luther were not mistaken

On October 31, 2016, Pope Francis signed a joint declaration with the president of the Lutheran World Federation, Munib Younan, in Sweden. This was to mark the beginning of what is planned to be a year-long “celebration” of Martin Luther’s break with Eternal Rome. This declaration, in part, stated:

Through dialogue and shared witness we are no longer strangers. Rather, we have learned that what unites us is greater than what divides us. While we are profoundly thankful for the spiritual and theological gifts received through the Reformation, we also confess and lament before Christ that Lutherans and Catholics have wounded the visible unity of the church. Theological differences were accompanied by prejudice and conflicts, and religion was instrumentalised for political ends.”

We have discussed the timeless teaching of Holy Mother Church regarding the Lutheran heresy recently, and will continue to provide more concrete and specific information on Martin Luther and his revolution in the coming weeks.

False ecumenism and jihad

After the brutal islamic ritual murder of Father Jacques Hamel in France recently, the Catholic world waited in vain for any sign of protest from Pope Francis. This coldly calculated silence from the Bergoglian Vatican will only serve to welcome more such attacks on our priests and faithful. In order to understand what has brought us to this point, where islamists can murder our priests with impunity while our Most Humble and Merciful Pontiff® castigates Catholics, we offer a post from June, 2014 wherein John Vennari of Catholic Family News explains this phenomenon.

False Ecumenism and Jihad

This Sunday, June 8, Pope Francis will allow for the first time in history Islamic prayers from the Quoran to be recited at the Vatican. The service is said to be in the cause of Peace in the Middle East (see report below). Members of Judaism will be part of the interfaith gathering as well. This radical initiative is scandalous on at least four counts:

1) The Prayers of Islam worship a false god; not the true God who is the Blessed Trinity; not the true God Jesus Christ, who said “No man comes to the Father but through Me.” Speaking on the modernist notion that various religions worship the same God, the eminent theologian Father Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange explained that such a tenet denies the principle of non-contradiction, which is the most fundamental principle of reason. Father Garrigou-Lagrange explains, “It is injurious to say that God would consider with equanimity all religions while one teaches truth and one teachers error, when one promises the good and one promises the evil. To say this would be to affirm that God would be indifferent to good and evil, to what is honest and shameful.”[1]

Joined at the Hip

In yesterday’s post, we spoke of the video message Pope Francis made to a gathering of charismatic ecumenicals on Saturday, May 23. One thing was inadvertently omitted from that post and it directly pertains to today’s post. In his talk to the John17 group, Pope Francis said,

“Dear brothers and sisters, division is a wound in the body of the Church of Christ. And we do not want this wound to remain open. Division is the work of the Father of Lies, the Father of Discord, who does everything possible to keep us divided.”

That was on Saturday. The next day, Sunday, May 24, Cardinal Walter Kasper spoke to a theological gathering in Washington, D.C., and said the following,

“The unity of the church and the unity of humanity are fatefully interwoven today. Therefore, it is our sacred duty … that we do not accept the division between Christians. The divisions within the church are … structures of sin. They thwart God’s plan for salvation. They are deep wounds in the body of Christ and the blame lies … with all sides.”

Cardinal Tagle also spoke to the gathering and he dutifully carried out the Pope’s agenda of warning Catholics against looking at the pre-Vatican II church with nostalgia, and to embrace and live out the council’s sense of openness to the modern world.

“Many people want to witness to Christ in some idealized past that they long for with nostalgia,” he said. “No, we witness to Christ now, here, where we are in our world.”

Kasper called for,  “An ecumenism of love, of encounter, of listening and friendship”. In closing he recalled the remark of Karl Rahner that the council “was only the beginning of a beginning”, then, “With the current pontificate, a new phase of its reception has begun.”

All of the foregoing is simply business as usual, and my purpose in reporting it is to emphasize that the Bergoglio/Kasper Agenda is proceeding with a passionate intensity and speed as never before. We have just about 19 weeks or so and we should, each of us, during this time attempt to alert at least one other Catholic to the danger to our faith, and of course, continue our Fatima program of Rosary, reparation, First Saturdays, and living our total consecration. Each Catholic that you wake up will then add their prayers and reparation and ideally, warn others. If we truly love Our Lady, we can do no less!

Remember, Pray the Rosary and Confound the Devil!
