Arrupe’s Pope

In an interview with Maike Hickson (Lifesite News), George Neumayr, discussing his new book about Jorge Bergoglio, “The Political Pope”, remarked about Pope Francis and his relationship with Pedro Arrupe, Superior General of the Jesuits::

“He was a protege of Arrupe, who identified Bergoglio as a rising liberal star in the order. That is why he made him a provincial at the age of 36. Arrupe presided over the order during its most intense period of liberalization and used Bergoglio as a liberal enforcer at the infamous worldwide gathering of Jesuits in 1975 that sealed the order’s socialist and modernist direction.”

That remark tells us some very significant things. To understand it better, let’s look at what Father Malachi Martin told us about the Jesuits, his own order, in his book, “The Jesuits, the Society of Jesus and the Betrayal of the Roman Catholic Church”.

In this book, which is understandably the most bitter by far of his books, Father Martin explains in great detail the origins and original purpose of the Society of Jesus founded by St. Ignatius of Loyola. He then provides an exhaustive history of the Society’s change under Pedro Arrupe and its ongoing revolution against the Catholic Faith and particularly against the papacy.  Unfortunately, this article must be brief and thus will only have time for a few extracts. Father Martin’s “The Jesuits” is very worthwhile reading to understand the full implications of this Jesuit Pope, our first dedicated Marxist Pope completely obedient to the ideals set forth by Arrupe.

As you read, please keep in mind Our Lady of Fatima’s warning, which we discussed in an earlier post (“If … if not”):

“If My requests are heeded, Russia will be converted and there will be peace; if not, she will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions against the Church. The good will be martyred, the Holy Father will have much to suffer, various nations will be annihilated. In the end, My Immaculate Heart will triumph.”

In his book, Father Martin describes how the Jesuits, under the control of Father General Pedro Arrupe constructed a Trojan Horse with which to subvert the Church from Vatican II onwards, making use of the fervor for “renewal” to achieve Arrupe’s vision for the Church. That they have succeeded beyond anyone’s wildest dreams is undeniable, and the proof is that even Malachi Martin did not foresee the monstrosity we are faced with today, a truly Jesuit pope in the very mold of Father Arrupe himself.

Neumayr identified the Jesuit gathering in 1975 as a seminal point. Malachi tells us about the importance of that time in his book, The Jesuits.

It was Paul VI who, very late in the day of his papacy, realized that the original dual purpose of the Society of Jesus had been changed. Under his pontificate, an extensive critical dossier about the Society was compiled. It is enough for the moment to say of that dossier that its contents were damning. It was a portrait, in effect, of a Jesuit Order that, like a weathervane atop a roof, had been turned by a different wind. For Jesuits, the papacy no longer held primacy of position. The corporate aim of the Society was now to place itself and the Church at the disposal of a radical and purely sociopolitical change in the world, without reference to –  indeed, in defiance of – papal strategy, policies, and aims. (op cit, p. 42)

Paul did make one last but equally ineffective attempt to recall the allegiance of the Society to the papacy during the ninety-six-day international assembly of Jesuit leaders, the 32nd General Congregation of 1974-1975. His effort met with total incomprehension and stubborn— some said even self-righteous— opposition from the Order. Pope and Jesuits simply could not agree. The Jesuits would not obey. Paul was too weak to force the issue farther.

The Jesuit response was typified by Father M. Buckley:“When you have people [the Jesuits] who do not think they have made errors either in content or procedure, and when they are suspected, resisted or reproved by the very man they are attempting to serve . . . you have . . . a very serious religious problem.”  Indeed, a very serious problem, because within six years  “Arrupism” controlled all Major Superiors in Rome and throughout the Provinces, as well as most of the leading Jesuit theologians, writers, and social activists.

In hindsight, it was merely the beginning of problems. Paul VI was  declining in health, a fact that was duly noted by Arrupe’s forces who were well versed in in the finer points of romanità. Martin states brutally of this poor pope, “His grand strategy for his Church was taken over and prostituted by others, reducing him to an impotence that scarred his last disease-ridden years until his death on August 6, 1978.”

Now, 1978 is an interesting and eventful year, as we shall see. Paul VI was followed by Albino Luciani, who took the conciliatory name of John Paul I. Malachi Martin describes his relation with the Jesuits thusly:

Even before he became Pope, he had apparently made up his mind unfavorably about the Society. And apparently the Society had already made up its mind about Pope John Paul I. No sooner had he been elected than the Jesuits asserted themselves.

Father Vincent O’Keefe*, the most prominent of the four General Assistants to Arrupe, and the one being groomed to succeed Arrupe one day as Father General of the Order, told a Dutch newspaper in an interview that the new Pope should reconsider the Church’s ban on abortion, homosexuality, and priesthood for women. The interview was published.

Pope John Paul I was incensed. This was more than contempt. It was an assertion that the Society of Jesus knew better than the Pope what morals Catholics should practice. And it was an assertion that the Society had the authority to speak out; that is, it was a direct appropriation of the authority that belonged exclusively to the papacy.

John Paul I summoned Arrupe and demanded an explanation. Arrupe humbly promised to look into the whole matter. But John Paul could read the handwriting on the wall as clearly as any Pope. On the basis of Paul VI’s critical dossier, …, the Pope composed a hard-hitting speech of warning. He planned to deliver it to the international assembly of Jesuit leaders and Father General Arrupe at another of their General Congregations to be held in Rome on September 30, 1978.

John Paul I never got to give that speech to the Jesuits, for he was found dead in his bed the morning of September 29.

Return for a moment to the Neumayr interview. Link here. I am not able to delineate for you the excellent points made by Neumayr in his interview with Maike Hickson but trust you will make use of it, for he demonstrates, by Bergoglio’s own words, the warm regard in which Jorge Bergoglio holds the many Marxists he has been associated with; for example:

  • He told the Italian press that he wasn’t “offended” if people call him a communist since he has “met many Marxists in my life who are good people.”
  • He appointed Óscar Rodríguez Maradiaga to his Council of advisors.  It came out through the WikiLeaks disclosures that Maradiaga has been working with George Soros operatives to promote socialism in the Church.
  • Others: Leonardo Boff, Fr. Luís Espinal, Esther Ballestrino – “I owe a huge amount to that great woman”, Leónidas Barletta,  Archbishop Óscar Romero and Dom Hélder Câmara.

Malachi Martin ended his book on the Jesuits by speculating that the order may be suppressed by a future pope, may reform itself miraculously recovering its original Ignatian spirituality, or failing that, God may intervene, for it is after all,  His Society, named after Him.  But Martin did not anticipate the Jesuits putting their own man into the papacy. By doing so, they appear to be forcing God’s hand.

It becomes clear that Russia’s errors, dialectical materialism, marxism, have spread throughout the world and to the top of the Church hierarchy, now possessing the Pope.  And yet, many people are now sacrificing and praying, obedient to Our Lady of Fatima’s request. Recently, this Pope identified himself as the “Bishop in white” of the Fatima prophecy.  What was he telling us?

Several disparate elements seem to be coming together now. Never has the world been so poised at the brink of global catastrophe as we are now. And the vast majority of the population is so far beyond Christian that  if asked if God is dead, they would shrug and remark that the question was irrelevant to them.

My point in writing this is simply to note that events seem to be lining up in a specific way and it may be appropriate to draw our conclusions accordingly.  Personally, I am beginning to conclude that there is little to be gained, by trying to convince others. I have been attempting that for the past 4-5 years with diminishing success.

Pray the Rosary !

  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.

The Destroyer Pope

I am not able to post at present but reprint an earlier post which was occasioned by the insightful remarks of a reader, Terry McCarthy.  With the passage of time, his assessment has proved quite accurate, don’t you think?

Regarding the current pontiff, I see the purpose of his almost daily heretical pronouncements as a way to destroy the concept of papal infallibility, and along with it, the immutability of doctrine. The fact that most Catholics do not seem to be much concerned about his heresies shows that they probably have already lost faith in the Church’s unchanging doctrine and are heretics themselves. The pope will soon be declared just another fallible church leader like the Anglicans’ Archbishop of Canterbury and all his declarations will be considered mere personal opinions subject to challenge by the “faithful”. Without the umbrella of infallibility, there is no genuine Vicar of Christ to unify the Church, thus Father Martin’s prophecy of the scattering of the sheep will be fulfilled.”

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

We wholeheartedly agree. This pope is the “destroyer pope” of prophecy.  Earlier this year, we covered a bit of it in our post, “The Judas Complex and Pope Francis”, where we remarked on this apostate pope’s “homily” wherein he described Judas as a “poor, repentant man”.

Thinking on this strange Pope’s even stranger affinity for Judas recalled to mind Father Malachi Martin’s writing about the Judas Complex among the Modernist Churchmen who infest the Church. His 1990 book, “The Keys of This Blood”, has a final portion titled “Coda, the Protocol of Salvation” which contains a fascinating analysis of the precise situation in which we find ourselves today, under a pope who asserts himself as more merciful and practical than Jesus Christ, whom he insists he represents. Indeed, as he himself reminds us, 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”.

In the earlier post, “The Judas Complex and Pope Francis”, we said,

Malachi Martin states, “the essence of the Judas complex: (is) the compromise of one’s basic principles in order to fit in with the modes of thought and behavior that the world regards as necessary for its vital interests”, and he asserts that this compromise was both the specific sin wherein Judas expressed his pride and also the sure norm we can use to identify the work of the “anti-church” which has infested the Church for generations now.

Fr. Martin asserts that,
“The greatest single act of malfeasance in high ecclesiastical and ecclesial office has been the tolerance and propagation of confusion about key beliefs among the Catholic rank and file, this tolerated confusion being a direct result of a tolerated dissidence by Catholic theologians and bishops concerning those same key beliefs. For to tolerate confusion is to propagate confusion.

“A primary and fundamental duty of every ecclesiastical office … (is) the clear, unmistakable teaching and enforcement of the basic rules and fundamental beliefs the Church holds and declares to be necessary for eternal salvation. There can be no compromise on both points: teaching and enforcement. If Roman Catholics have any rights in the Church, they have a primary right to receive such unequivocal teaching and to be the subjects of such forthright and unhesitating enforcement.”

Fr. Martin identifies four key areas that have been effectively undermined by this confusion:

  • The Eucharist. This means the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, undermined by Paul VI’s Novus Ordo, and now demolished at the hands of the Humble Pope of Mercy®
  • The oneness and trueness of the Roman Catholic Church, undermined by false ecumenism, now being brought to its logical conclusion under Pope Francis.
  • The Petrine Office of the Bishop of Rome, undermined by collegiality.
  • The morality of Christian reproductive activity undermined by protestant heresy of the sovereignty of individual conscience.

This last point has been carried farther than even Father Martin foresaw with the Bergoglio/Kasper agenda of asserting the “rights” of those living in persistent mortal sin, such as sodomy, fornication and adultery, to receive Holy Communion.

Each of the above four points is becoming ever more clear as Pope Francis pushes his agenda with brutal determination while the sycophant catholic media abet him and our weak and effeminate prelates look away.

Martin explains that these modernist Judases intend to eliminate the Primacy of the Pope and replace the Petrine Privilege with a gaggle of national churches, each attuned their their own local culture and needs. In order to achieve the liquidation of the Petrine Office they require the consent of its occupant,

” and the easiest way in which that could happen would be the election to the throne of Peter of a papal candidate who, prior to his election, is known as favoring such a liquidation. Domination of a papal Conclave by that sort of mind would be a prerequisite for success in this epoch-making venture. For epoch-making it is: to transform the almost two-thousand-year-old tradition of the Roman Catholic Church by ending officially and once and for all the papal primacy such as it has evolved over the centuries and has been asserted by every ecumenical council of the Church, including the Second Vatican Council.”

The current occupant fits this description perfectly, wielding the full power of the papacy in order to abolish it by means of collegiality and synodality.”

There really can be no doubt any longer that we have in the current occupant an apostate pope who serves his master, the Lord of this world and is quite literally hell bent on destroying the Church. The St. Gallen Group, or if you will, by their own name, the St. Gallen Mafia of Cardinal Danneels and his ilk elected him, with the complicity of Benedict XVI. He serves his masters well, and as others have remarked, we are perhaps on the cusp of the greatest persecution of Christians the world has ever seen.

Again and again, Pray the Rosary and confound the devil!

†  Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of our hearts, Mother of the Church, do thou offer to the Eternal Father the Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ, for the conversion of poor sinners, especially our Pontiff.

Homosexual Clerics and the Hatred for Life

I apologise for the past few articles regarding the corruption in the Vatican. It is unpleasant to talk about but

“There is a need for respect and reverence for people who are homosexual.” – Cardinal de Kesel

needs to be placed in perspective. The corruption pouring forth now from the Bergoglian Vatican has actually been a growing undercurrent for well over 100 years. It was given fresh impetus with Vatican II and  now, as Our Lord and His most Blessed Mother are driven out by the pride, presumption and lust of the current occupants, the Vatican’s thin veneer should burst to reveal the tawdry squalor within.

As upsetting as the Capozzi sex-capades are, even more disappointing is the indifference of so many Catholics to this and the many other scandals under Pope Francis.  The healthy Catholic response to the homosexual orgy and drug smuggling that fueled it, should be righteous indignation. But many Catholics today have become so indoctrinated to be “tolerant” of grave sin that they no longer object to the openly homosexual clergy and do not even become concerned when Pope Francis clears out the pro-life members of the Pontifical Academy for Life and appoints people like the Anglican Nigel Biggar who supports abortion and Katarina le Blanc who  ghoulishly uses the stem cells from aborted babies in her research, thus supporting trafficking in murdered preborn infants.

In the midst of this most recent outbreak of scandal, I returned to a book I treasure, written almost one thousand years ago by a great saint in the Church. Although even the Catholic Encyclopedia tries to cast aspersions on his work, St. Peter Damian’s inspired genius is as appropriate for today as it was those many centuries ago, and today we have the excellent translation (here) by Matthew Cullinan Hoffman as well.  St. Peter Damian’s “Liber Gomorrhianus” or “Book of Gomorrah” is far and away the most impassioned denunciation of sexual perversion ever penned by a Catholic saint.

St. Peter Damian wrote in the eleventh century, a time in which as Hoffman notes,  “The popes had politicized the papacy by appropriating its spiritual functions for secular ends.” Incredible isn’t it to see how history just keeps repeating itself and I guess it will do so until we finally grasp its lessons!

St. Peter Damian knew that it was necessary to define the problem in clear, unambiguous terms, avoiding all polite euphemisms.  His writings show that  he was aware that some could construe them as a source of scandal to the vulnerable. He also knew that his words and actions would arouse undying enmity from the vicious men who engage in these behaviors. But he so loved Our Lord Jesus Christ and the Church, the most pure Bride of Christ, that he fearlessly denounced “the cancer of sodomy” and urged the Pope for a reform to purify the Church.

Who is Jorge Mario Bergoglio?

Who is Jorge Mario Bergoglio?  Who is this man who has succeeded in making such a mess of the Church?  In a recent discussion, this question arose and after some lively exchanges, a consensus was reached. To understand it, let’s return to Father Malachi Martin’s writings from back in the final decade of the last century.

Father Malachi Martin has certainly been a sign of contradiction and yet even today, despite the efforts of his many detractors, much of what he wrote has proved prescient, especially under the current occupant of the See of Peter.  One of Martin’s most sensational claims  was that in an occult masonic ceremony performed on June 29, 1963, Lucifer was enthroned in the Vatican. The event was described in Martin’s book, Windswept House, which was published in the late 1990’s. In an interview with Bernard Janzen,  published in The Tempter’s Hour”, Father Martin spoke about the book and its message:

“95% of the events (related in the book) are factual, but they are cloaked in novelistic form.” He stated that the primary theme of the book is “The Roman Catholic Church …. is in apostasy.” Father explained that  an apostate is one who denies basic truths of the Church, such as hell, divine grace, or personal sin, such as in reducing sin to merely social offenses, [as the present occupant does].

Father Martin then stated:

“At the present moment  (1997) a sizable majority of Catholics are in apostasy. They have been led into apostasy by churchmen in apostasy. At least a sizable minority of cardinals, bishops, priests and religious are in apostasy. They no longer profess the basic truths of Christianity, let alone Catholicism….They are apostates and yet they are in charge. They are in charge of the Church.”

Now, nearly a generation later, it is clear that the “sizable minority” of apostate cardinals and bishops has become the vast majority. Father Martin then explained that a sub-theme of Windswept House is that,

“In a short time, humanly speaking, there will be no visible holy Roman Catholic Church organization.” Further, “This is referred to as auto-demolition. [See here for more on this.] In the 1960’s there was this diabolical consecration, this enthronement of Satan within the Vatican. … It is a historical fact. … done by Luciferians from all over the world and therefore, in a certain sense, Lucifer has power in Rome. He doesn’t own Rome yet (in 1997), but I’m sure he hopes to own some future Pope so that the house will be truly his. The only man who can expel Lucifer from Rome is the owner of the house. And that owner is the Pope. It is the Pope that must carry out the exorcism, the cleaning of the house.”

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

Note that Martin said this in 1997. So you can see how impatient the Danneels/Kasper faction must have been when not only did Pope John Paul II hang on, but then Benedict took office and issued his Moto Proprio for the perpetuation of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Despite Pope Benedict’s many shortcomings, this freeing-up of the Holy Sacrifice was a great blessing for the faithful seeking to find Christ amidst the conciliar wreckage.

Now, we must be clear: According to Father Martin, the enemy required that the initial enthronement of June 29, 1963 must be completed within fifty years by the Installation of their Prince  in the Citadel. That Prince is the person to whom it is given to complete the irreversible changes of the Catholic Faith; someone with a hardened resolve to totally eclipse the true Church with the necessary church of this world.

Best Friends Forever!

With the June 29, 2013 deadline approaching,  those serving the ancient enemy within the Church  had to force Benedict’s resignation. We discussed the forced resignation in our post, “Was Pope Benedict SWIFTed?”  Once he was properly “installed” one of the first decisions Pope Francis made was to live with his dear friend, the notorious sodomite Mgsr. Ricca, and also to appoint him to a prestigious post at the Vatican Bank (IOR). Thus another link with the forces of international finance and the Lavender Mafia/St. Gallen Group.

I expect many readers will recoil at all that I have written above. There was a time when I would have too! I was repelled by Father Martin’s writing on the Enthronement of Lucifer in the Vatican when I first read it. But that was before Jorge Mario Bergoglio.  Now, I completely agree that there is some evil force behind all this, and that it serves the power-brokers of this world, powers that hate human life, hate Our Lord Jesus Christ and wish to destroy any sign of Him in this world. I have stated often that I believe Pope Francis intends nothing less than the abolition of the Mass. But he is also forging ahead with his demolition of the structures of the faith.

Many other bloggers have documented how Bergoglio has dismantled the Pontifical Academy for Life and now has begun demolishing the Pontifical John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family, Sandro Magister has a most informative article on just this subject here.

Father Malachi Martin wrote much  about what he thought might happen, but that was before the turn of the century. What would he think about our situation now? Would he recognise in Jorge Mario Bergoglio the man called forth by the dark ceremonies of 1963?  What do you think? And what do you think will happen next?

As always, 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.
  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!

The Truth of the Lord Endures Forever

As a result of the canonization of Francisco and Jacinta, the little saints of Fatima, we are seeing a beautiful torrent of graces from heaven. Years ago, when he was asked why no pope has Consecrated Russia, Father Malachi Martin said that it was because grace was not given to them, essentially because not enough faithful have obeyed Our Lady’s request for rosaries and reparation, especially the First Saturdays.  But we have been working, all of us who heed the true message of Fatima, and consequently, we have had the Church’s Canonization of the youngest Fatima saints. Our Lady had already “canonized” them, in her promise that she would take them to heaven soon; but when the pope gave the Church’s approval, I believe that heaven smiled on us all and has shown us mercy in Cardinal Burke’s effort towards fulfilling Our Lady’s request.

Please, more than ever, offer your fasting, penances and rosaries – and Eucharistic adoration if possible! For the success of the very brave initiative of Cardinal Burke and the wonderful Catholics of Voice of the Family.  I will not reprint it all here when it is so well done at Lifesite News, but please follow these links  if you have not already:

Cardinal Burke Calls for Consecration of Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary

We are witnessing St. John Paul II’s prophesy of an ‘anti-Church’: Catholic priest

Dear readers, you have endured so many of my posts, bemoaning the tragic state of the hierarchy today, and now, at last, we have begun to see some really hopeful actions! But if we do not support them with our renewed prayers and sacrifices, how will they sustain this brave effort?

Just a few days ago, this pope canonized Saint Francisco Marto  and Saint Jacinta Marto of Fatima. He was unable to do it however, without perverting the message of Fatima and even taking a slap at Our Lady afterwards.   But in response to this canonization, Heaven has showered graces and we are now blessed with a true miracle, which I believe has come from Jacinta and Francisco themselves. These humble little saints never missed an opportunity to make reparation for sinners, to beg for their conversion and to pray for the Pope.

And now, Cardinal Burke and those who support him,  at last are calling for the Pope to obey Our Lady of Fatima – to Consecrate Russia, to promote the First Saturdays of Reparation, to promote the Brown Scapular. This is the miracle of grace we have been praying and offering penance for. Please support this brave initiative with all your hearts and do not fail to thank God and our newest saints of Fatima – Jacinta and Francisco! – for this generous blessing.

What will be the Society’s Response?

We must also pray that Bishop Fellay and the SSPX stand with Cardinal Burke and these others who are calling for the Consecration of Russia and the First Saturdays. For many months, Bishop Fellay and the Society of St. Pius X have been waging a Crusade of Rosaries and Reparation, begging for just this moment. Now, here it is, what will be the Society’s  response?

The question of what the Society of St. Pius X will do is not an idle one. Many traditionals have been watching the Argentine pope’s tango with the Society leaders and wondering … This is a crucial moment to see if Bishop Fellay is truly a leader in the spirit of Archbishop Lefebvre! We must pray for them.

What about the other Bishops?

Will they stand idly by? Who is brave enough to stand with Cardinal Burke? After years of failing to defend the faith and failing Our Lady of Fatima as well,  will they now heed the call from Our Lady of Fatima? We must pray for these Bishops and pray for our priests!

If you have not already, please read Father Clovis’s remarks at the Rome Life Forum, he is saying quite unmistakably the truth about the anti-church. Readers, this is a crucial turning point, we must not fail now, because if we do, there will be only darkness hereafter as Bergoglio and his wrecking crew finish their seeming demolition.  Any Bishop who does not stand with Cardinal Burke is not just failing the faithful, he is failing the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Wouldn’t it be a splendid thing if this pope repented! We must pray! And we must back up our prayers with obedient and generous sacrifices! Pray to Sts. Jacinta  and Francisco for help with this, believe me, it really does work!

Now is the time for us to renew our prayers, our acts of reparation with a gratitude we may not have felt earlier!

We close with a couple of Psalms from Prime ifrom the  Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Psalm 53

Save me, O God, by Thy name, and judge me in Thy strength.  O God, hear my prayer: harken to the words of my mouth.  For strangers have risen up against me; and the mighty have sought after my soul: and they have not set God before their eyes.

For behold God is my helper: and the Lord is the protector of my soul. Turn back the evil upon my enemies; and destroy them in Thy truth.  Freely will I  sacrifice to thee, and will give praise, O God, to Thy name: because it is good: For Thou hast delivered me out of all trouble: and mine eye hath looked down upon my enemies.

Psalm 84

Thou hast blessed Thy land, O Lord, Thou hast turned away the captivity of Jacob. Thou hast forgiven the iniquity of Thy people. Thou hast covered all their sins. Thou hast softened all Thine anger; Thou hast turned Thyself from Thy wrathful indignation. Convert Thou us, O God our Savior and turn away Thine anger from us. Wilt Thou be angry with us forever, or wilt Thou stretch out Thy wrath from generation to generation?

Thou wilt turn again, O God and quicken us and Thy people shall rejoice in Thee. Show us O Lord, Thy mercy and grant us Thy salvation. I will harken what the Lord God shall say within me for He will speak peace unto His people; unto His saints and unto them that are converted in heart.

Surely His salvation is nigh unto them that fear him, that glory may dwell in our land. mercy and truth have met; justice and peace have kissed. Truth is sprung from the earth and justice hath looked down from heaven. For the Lord shall put forth His goodness and our land shall yield her fruit. Justice shall walk before him and shall set his footsteps in the way.

Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Ghost; as it was in the beginning, is now and ever shall be, world without end. Amen.

  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, guardian of the Holy Family, protect our families, protect our priests!

  St. Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle.

  St. Francisco of Fatima, pray for us! pray for the Church!

  St. Jacinta of Fatima, pray for us! pray for the Pope!

The Centenary of Fatima and the Passion of the Church

Father Malachi Martin was bound, unfairly he believed, but nevertheless bound by an oath against revealing the Third Secret, or more properly, the third portion of the Secret of Fatima. But this chafed him so that he increasingly indicated insights into the secret’s meaning as time went by and the devil’s own chaos increased in the Church. It must have been a terrible burden to know that if only he were able to speak out, so many souls might have repented and been saved! But Father took solace in obedience, knowing as he did that it was by way of the arrogant disobedience of Popes that this assault from hell came about.

And so, even though bound by his oath, Father allowed certain insights. If we review all the hints he gave us in his books and interviews, they fall into a pattern roughly consisting of three portions,

  1. A material chastisement
  2. A spiritual chastisement
  3. The action of Russia in both chastisements.

Frère Michel de la Sainte Trinité  also believed that Russia was the key player in both the physical and spiritual events of the chastisement. Additionally,  Frère Michel stressed that the physical chastisements began with the Second World War and since Russia has not been consecrated properly – and thus cannot be exorcised of Satanic control – the ongoing war will only continue, eventually enveloping the entire world with one horrific conflagration of intense terror. The force behind this will of course, be Russia, or more precisely, satanic marxism.

Satanic marxism is also behind the spiritual chastisement which continues apace until the Church is eventually reduced to a very small  and seemingly impotent remnant. There should be little doubt that Pope Francis is a satanic marxist and is the Pope that Father Malachi Martin alluded to as the last pope of this era and who would be under the control of Satan. It has been said before that the Age of Apostasy began with Martin Luther and will end with Luther’s own Pope. That would appear to be Francis.  St. Hildegard has told us what to expect of this pope and Blessed Elizabeth Canori Mora has also warned us of what is to come.

In a previous post we quoted Antonio Socci’s account of Pope Benedict’s revelation at Fatima in 2010:

But a resounding explicit confirmation came from Benedict XVI himself, who, during an unexpected pilgrimage to Fatima on May 13, 2010, affirmed: “He deceives himself who thinks that the prophetic mission of Fatima is concluded.”

He added: “there are indicated future realities of the Church which little by little are manifesting themselves… and therefore it is the sufferings of the Church which are announced.”

But could such prophecies be found in that text [of the vision]?

These two phrases of the Pope in that discourse at Fatima prompt reflection:

“Man has the power to unleash a cycle of death and terror, but he is not able to stop it.” And then: “The faith in vast regions of the earth risks being extinguished, like a flame without fuel.”

From these words of Pope Benedict one discerns, therefore, that there is truly something else in the Third Secret and that it is dramatic for the world and the Church. The volume in fact draws from the letters of Sister Lucia and from the unpublished diary “My Way.” Impressive among things previously unpublished, is the account of how Sister Lucy overcame the terror that prevented her from writing down the Third Secret.

The Unpublished Account

At around 4 p.m. on January 3, 1944, in the chapel of the convent, before the Tabernacle, Lucia asked Jesus to make known His will: “I then felt a friendly hand, maternal and affectionate, touch my shoulder.”

And the Mother of God said to her: “be at peace, and write what I have commanded you, but not, however, that which has been given to you to understand its meaning,” intending to allude to the meaning of the vision which the Virgin herself had revealed.

Immediately afterward, said Sister Lucia, “I felt my spirit inundated by a mystery of light that is God and in Him I saw and heard: the point of a lance like a flame that is detached, touches the axis of the earth, and it trembles: mountains, cities, towns and villages with their inhabitants are buried. The sea, the rivers, the clouds, exceed their boundaries, inundating and dragging with them, in a vortex, houses and people in a number that cannot be counted. It is the purification of the world from the sin in which it is immersed. Hatred, ambition, provoke the destructive war.

After I felt my racing heart, in my spirit a soft voice said: ‘In time, one faith, one baptism, one Church, Holy, Catholic, Apostolic. In eternity, Heaven!’ This word ‘Heaven’ filled my heart with peace and happiness in such a way that, almost without being aware of it, I kept repeating to myself for a long time: Heaven, Heaven.” (Antonio Socci)

From this came the strength to write the Third Secret. …

January 28, 2017

With yesterday’s repost, we renew our discussion of Apocalypse 8 in order to examine an intriguing quote from Sister Lucia. When asked to comment on the Third Secret she suggested that we faithful read the Apocalypse, especially Chapters 8  through 13. Several Popes have also indicated that the message of Fatima is apocalyptic, as has Father Malachi Martin. In fact, it is quite possible that by reviewing Chapters 8 through 13 we may even gain some insight into what this Pope of Surprises has in store for us; what do you think?

And now we continue with Part 3, which has been updated and much new material added:

“And the second angel sounded the trumpet: and as it were a great mountain, burning with fire, was cast into the sea, and the third part of the sea became blood:  And the third part of those creatures died, which had life in the sea, and the third part of the ships was destroyed.” (Apoc. 8, 8-9)

Our last post in this series, Fatima, Vatican II and the Chastisement 2, did not fully address the verse above. I appreciate that this was pointed out to me. We did mention the common opinion that the burning mountain referred to Islam, but did not note the fact that it may also, and much more probably, refer to Russia. Indeed, Our Lady’s last appearance at Fatima on October 13, 1917, was just days prior to the Bolshevik Revolution of November 7, 1917.

Yes, as Father Sylvester Berry points out in his book, The Apocalypse of St. John, the burning mountain is most certainly a country and with the hindsight we have now, 100 years after Our Lady of Fatima warned that if Russia was was not consecrated,  she (Russia) “will spread her errors throughout the world, causing wars and persecutions against the Church. The good will be martyred; the Holy Father will have much to suffer; various nations will be annihilated.”  Fr. Berry:  “The vision shows that, despite the preaching of the Gospel, some great nation will bring war and bloodshed upon a large portion of mankind. It also predicts great persecutions against the Church. Nations will seek to destroy the Church at all hazards.”

In another earlier post, Islam and the Errors of Russia, we explored the connection between the two evils, Islam and Russia. This will all be clear soon, as the chastisement reveals its contours more clearly. But for now, just note: Blessed Elena Aiello prophesied in the year 1960 (note well the date.) that “Russia will battle America and will overcome Europe. … will raise her flag over the Dome of St. Peter’s.”  Indeed, some have noted that with Pope Francis, we already have a marxist pope, who owns a symbol of the errors of Russia, that is, a hammer and sickle on which Christ Our Saviour hangs, crucified.

Additionally, Sister Lucia herself told Dr. William Walsh, in answer to his inquiry whether the United States of America would be overcome by Communism unless the Consecration was done, “Yes”.

Let’s continue with Father Berry’s remarks on the end of Chapter 8:

A Progressive Accumulation of Evils

“The prophecies of this chapter have been fulfilled many times in the past. No doubt they will often be verified in the future. It should be noted, however, that a progressive accumulation of evils is predicted. At first, it affects individuals only (Apoc. 8: 7). Then a nation or an entire church is involved (Apoc. 8: 8), and a number of great heretics fall away from the Faith (Apoc. 8: 10). Finally, the whole Church suffers from a weakening of Faith and discipline (Apoc. 8: 12). This gradual progression of evil, this “mystery of iniquity” (2 Thess. 2: 7), which was working even in the days of St. Paul will finally usher in the Antichrist. … Whatever interpretation be adopted, there can be no doubt that this verse heralds the beginning of a new and important epoch in the history of the Church.”

This quote is from Father Sylvester Berry’s essential book, “The Apocalypse of St. John”.  As we continue with this series, keep in mind that God our Father has given us His own Son for our Savior and the Blessed Virgin Mary for our Mother and will sustain us in all our needs. The times are approaching when when must hold firm to this faith.

Grace has fled

Grace has fled from the Church and from the world.

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

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

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

Speaking to the Cardinals in conclave, Cardinal Lansing says,

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Frère Michel on the Age of Apostasy, updated

Before we return to the Apocalypse, let’s put a few pieces together. Father Malachi Martin and Frère Michel de la Sainte Trinité could have had an interesting discussion, couldn’t they? You all know very well Father Martin’s writings about the enthronement which occurred in the reign of Paul VI. Let’s keep it in mind as we review what Frère Michel tells us here:

From The Whole Truth About Fatima, Vol. III

It is Jesus Himself Who first predicted this terrible crisis of the Faith which will open the “last times”. Along with famines and earthquakes, wars and persecutions, Our Lord clearly predicts that there will also be grave deficiencies even within the Church:

«Then they will deliver you up to tribulation, and will put you to death; and you will be hated by all nations for My name’s sake. And then many will fall away, and will betray one another, and will hate one another. And many false prophets will arise, and will lead many astray. And because iniquity will abound, the charity of the many will grow cold. But whoever perseveres to the end, he shall be saved.» (Mt. 24: 9-13)

«… For false christs and false prophets will arise, and will show great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect. Behold, I have foretold it to you.» (Mt. 24: 24)

Finally, we are familiar with these stupefying words of Jesus:

«Yet when the Son of man comes, will He find, do you think, faith on the earth?» (Lk. 18: 8)

This question of Our Lord, explained by His other prophecies on the last times – which are utterly definite and unconditional – takes on an even more dramatic resonance. The apostasy will come, Jesus evokes its most extreme extension, and He leaves us in uncertainty.

THE APOSTOLIC PREACHING

The Apostles understood this tragic teaching very well. There are countless texts where they evoke this menacing apostasy. They multiply warnings against its artisans, the false prophets and false doctors of all sorts, who come from the Church’s very bosom and are already at work against Her, striving furiously to destroy the Faith of the faithful. But “in the last days”, they make it clear, the false prophets will multiply most dangerously. We must reread chapters II and III of Saint Peter’s Second Epistle:

«But there were false prophets also among the people, just as among you there will be lying teachers who will bring in destructive sects. They even disown the Lord Who bought them, thus bringing upon themselves swift destruction.» (2 Pet. 2: 1)

«This first you must know, that in the last days there will come deceitful scoffers, men walking according to their own lusts, saying, “Where is the promise of His coming? For since the fathers fell asleep, all things continue as they were from the beginning of creation.”… But beloved, do not be ignorant of this one thing, that one day with the Lord is as a thousand years, and a thousand years as one day. The Lord does not delay in His promises, but for your sake is long-suffering, not wishing that any should perish but that all should turn to repentance. (2 Pet. 3: 3-9)

We must reread Saint Jude, taking up the same theme:

The Destroyer Pope

A reader , Terry McCarthy, remarked on our last post,

“Regarding the current pontiff, I see the purpose of his almost daily heretical pronouncements as a way to destroy the concept of papal infallibility, and along with it, the immutability of doctrine. The fact that most Catholics do not seem to be much concerned about his heresies shows that they probably have already lost faith in the Church’s unchanging doctrine and are heretics themselves. The pope will soon be declared just another fallible church leader like the Anglicans’ Archbishop of Canterbury and all his declarations will be considered mere personal opinions subject to challenge by the “faithful”. Without the umbrella of infallibility, there is no genuine Vicar of Christ to unify the Church, thus Father Martin’s prophecy of the scattering of the sheep will be fulfilled.”

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

We wholeheartedly agree. This pope is the “destroyer pope” of prophecy. John Vennari has an excellent column on the demonic words and actions of Pope Francis, see here. And we have, in many previous posts, discussed the prophecies, both scriptural and from approved private revelations which foretell of just such a time as this. Just search on he category, Catholic prophecy in our search bar on the right side.

In fact, earlier this year, we covered a bit of it in our post, “The Judas Complex and Pope Francis”, where we remarked on this apostate pope’s “homily” wherein he described Judas as a “poor, repentant man”.

Thinking on this strange Pope’s even stranger affinity for Judas recalled to mind Father Malachi Martin’s writing about the Judas Complex among the Modernist Churchmen who infest the Church. His 1990 book, “The Keys of This Blood”, has a final portion titled “Coda, the Protocol of Salvation” which contains a fascinating analysis of the precise situation in which we find ourselves today, under a pope who asserts himself as more merciful and practical than Jesus Christ, whom he insists he represents. Indeed, as he himself reminds us, 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”.

In the earlier post, “The Judas Complex and Pope Francis”, we said,
