“The last temptation is the greatest treason:
To do the right deed for the wrong reason.” ( “Murder in the Cathedral”, T. S. Eliot)
In the eleventh century, Saint Peter Damien wrote that, “The popes had politicized the papacy by appropriating its spiritual functions for secular ends.”
In the twentieth century, Father Malachi Martin wrote the following about recent popes, Pius XII, John XXIII, Paul VI, John Paul I and John Paul II,
“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.”
This error that Father Malachi Martin and St. Peter Damien refers to, that is, politicizing the papacy by appropriating its spiritual functions for secular ends has been evident in virtually every single act of the current papacy. Its corollary is evident not only in the pope and hierarchy but throughout almost the entirety of the responses of the laity. I refer to the indifference to using the Church’s spiritual power to exercise its moral authority.
No, he has not broken his self-righteous silence, but if we look back on a recent event, we may understand his motives. Pope Francis is not going to back down from his complicity with the Lavender/St. Gallen Mafia which put him in office. In the first place, he is as he boasts, “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 second place, he believes that for an older homosexual man to force his will on a young, but physically mature boy is beneficial to the boy. This is not a new concept, it is thousands of years old. And today, sodomy between a man and a boy is a well respected tradition of initiation within the very circles that have gained control in the Church. As we explained in “The Pitchman“:
“God made you like this”
“Juan Carlos, that you are gay does not matter. God made you like this and loves you like this and I don’t care. The pope loves you like this. You have to be happy with who you are.”
Pope Francis said that during an interview with Juan Carlos Cruz, one of the victims in in the Chilean clerical sex abuse scandal. Cruz, who now declares himself a homosexual, is thus lauded by Pope Francis in a way that echoes the talking points of NAMBLA.
According to NAMBLA, one of their stated goals includes: “to educate society about the positive and beneficial nature of man/boy love, and to support men and boys involved in consensual sexual and emotional relationships with each other.”
Passing strange isn’t it? The Vicar of Christ speaking as though he were a “card-carrying” member of NAMBLA, (the North American Man Boy Love Association). They firmly avow that they are doing young men a service; as one member once assured me, “I was making good citizens of them.”
Pope Francis uttered that blasphemous lie in the same breath with which he assured Cruz that he is the Pope. That is to say, he used his position as Vicar of Christ to deceive a young victim of a homosexual priest-predator.
Oh yes, Juan Carlos Cruz must “be happy” with who he is, for “God” made him that way. Whose “God” might that be? Why, the “God” of Pope Francis, of course. This demonstrates to us that this pope will not in any substantive way hinder the homosexual agenda in the Church. And Catholics throughout the Church are angry and betrayed as they should be. He does not believe that he can be removed from his position. “Supreme Pastor and Teacher of all the faithful!”
Most Catholic commentators realize this, and are in favor of the civil and criminal investigations which are cropping up across the United States and beginning in other countries as well. Their sentiments were reflected by a commentator I admire very much, Rorate’s Joseph Shaw, “Yes, let it all come out, even if some of the abusers turn out to be people we like and have trusted. As St Catherine of Siena said: “We’ve had enough exhortations to be silent. Cry out with a thousand tongues – I see the world is rotten because of silence.” (LINK)
Of course, he is right. These sins do cry out to heaven and the truth must be told. But we should bear in mind also that there is an agenda behind this. We will soon see this crisis used to strip the Church of her properties, her wealth and her very last shred of dignity. And tragically, our Pope of Affliction will do not one thing to defend the pure and holy Bride of Christ. For this is the hour of Judas, and the power of darkness. The ancient enemy of Christ and His Church holds all the power of the world’s nations, as well as all the earthly power in the Church. Since those who lead the Church now and even most of the laity, no longer believe in the spiritual power of the Church, no longer wish to avail themselves of the powerful but humble weapons given to them by Our Lady of the Rosary at Fatima, it seems that we must proceed, as Jesus Christ our Savior did, to trudge the path to Calvary. How long, oh Lord, how long?
† 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 Immaculata.
Note to my friends and loyal readers. I have worked overly hard to share with you an interpretation of what is happening and why it is happening in order to emphasise one thing only. All of this, every single item of every event that is occurring is for one reason only. In every event, God Who loves you so much that He willed to save you at the cost of His suffering and death, wants you to turn from your own ways of doing things, your own solutions to your problems, and avail yourself of His mercy and Hig generous graces, which are ONLY to be found in the one, true faith He established.
The Church remains pure and holy, even as Her founder, Our Lord Jesus Christ. When He lay in the dirt, bruised, bleeding, spit upon and seeming defeated, He remained the pure and spotless Victim, offered for our sins. And when His dead body was laid in our Blessed Mother’s arms, even then, He was preparing His Resurrection. The devil rejoiced to see His broken body and His Sorrowful Mother’s copious bitter tears. He rejoices now, as he sees Catholics fleeing the Church in disgust.
By leaving, they deprive themselves of the sanctifying grace which is essential for their soul’s survival in these times. Despite what they may think, sanctifying grace, the true life of God for your soul, only comes from the true sacraments in the true church. Those who have broken from the faith are abandoning the only means for their salvation. We are obligated to pray and offer penance for them, but do not look back at them.
Let them go, for Our Lord knows His own and they know Him. Those who insist on following Him in their own way, well, they are dross, let them go. Only by obedience to God’s merciful message of Fatima, through devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, ever obedient, will we be saved.
Please do not allow others to mislead you by spreading errors about the Society of St. Pius X. It is the true Remnant that will save the Church. Do not take my word but pray your Rosary and Our Lady will lead you to the Truth!
I will rest a while but have arranged for several re-posts of popular articles at the appropriate time. I do hope that you will continue to pray for our priests who are suffering a white martyrdom now, perhaps to prepare them for what is to follow.
From Lifesite News this morning, we see that there is credible information that it was our humble Pontiff himself who insisted that Msgr. Luigi Capozzi, assistant to Cardinal Cocopalmerio be given the prestigious apartment in which he gave his drug and sex orgies. A little over a year ago, we wrote extensively on this in a series of articles which referred back to Chapter 9 of the Apocalypse and tracing the current plague of infestation to Paul VI. I will not quote the extensive references here but refer you to the links at the end of this article.
For those readers who are interested in placing these most recent scandals in the Bergoglian Vatican within the context of the Apocalypse , I urge you to read the earlier posts, which are linked below. In them you will come to see the sacred revelations unfold and the connections between the Vatican Banking scandals, the Lavender Mafia and the satanic infestation of the Vatican.
And now, under Pope Francis, we see the homosexual corruption and the financial corruption nicely tied together in one tidy little pile under the Pope’s dear friend Monsignor Battista Ricca, whom he appointed to the Vatican Bank.
And now, the latest scandal, for which we have to thank his Eminence Cardinal Cocopalmerio and his secretary, Msgr. Luigi Capozzi, but ultimately Pope Francis, who promotes and sustains all the corruption. Although Capozzi was arrested by the Vatican police some two months ago, when they found him so high on cocaine that he had to be treated at a Vatican clinic, and although the homosexual orgy which he was hosting took place in what was officially space belonging to Cardinal Cocopalmerio, not one statement condemning this disgusting behavior has been made by the Bergoglian Vatican. It is the silence of a rotting corpse. ( . . . )
And today, we see that this pope, who vowed “transparency” and proclaimed his intention to clear up corruption, is continuing his stubborn silence and is actually fostering it by continuing to stand by his corrupt choices. Now that one brave Monsignor has risked his life and his reputation in order to begin to expose the extent of the corruption, we should all expect the inevitable mud-slinging which results from any attack on the perverted narcissists roosting in the Vatican. And even some corrupt prelates, who are themselves complicit in similar tolerance for the Lavender liturgies infesting their own dioceses, will appear to support the reform.
But one of the gravest threats is that proposed by the “useful idiots” (a marxist term of endearment for foolish people who abet their plans) who cry out for the government to clear out the church. That will harm the church further and the result will be that which Paul VI (who should know!) foretold:
“Yes, the smoke of Satan is in the sanctuary. Due to the presence of Satan, Catholics are destined to become an infinitesimally small part of humanity.”
A special office has been set aside in the Vatican Bank, Institute for Works of Religion. It begs the question, what does the Vatican expect to happen?
Note that the Guidelines were set up this past February, about the time that the cover was being blown off the Chilean scandal and the Pope himself was becoming inextricably entangled in the scandal. Note also that several close to the pope have become implicated in this scandal or others, for instance, unrepentant Cardinal Errazuriz and Cardinal Maradiaga. Add to this Cocopalmerio’s problems and the homoerotic “artwork” of Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia and you see that there has developed an undeniable stench in this papacy.
The Pope’s “Testament”, far from being a spiritual testament similar to that of St. Paul as Pope Francis claims, is a thinly veiled attempt to prevent the seizure of finances and properties in the event of legal judgements against the numerous prelates who are to be convicted. There may be much more scandal coming to light and it appears that the Vatican considers that the Pope himself may not be immune.
It’s fascinating to see how quickly and decisively the Vatican can act when its finances and properties are threatened. Quite unlike its response when souls are being destroyed.
As St. Hildegard said, Wretches that we are, who shall deliver us?
Readers, I took that last quote from our post on St. Hildegard, “The Figure of a Woman”. In that post, we closed with the explanation:
“The quote above refers to the filth of the Lavender/St. Gallen faction which now occupies the Church. Once the monstrous head is disposed of by Divine intervention, all the corruption will be revealed. Those who survive, that is, the few faithful remaining at that time, will be awestruck at the extent of the evil when at last the entire truth becomes known. But even though it will be “late”, the Immaculate Mother of God will prevail and the Church will be restored. Bergoglio, Kasper, Danneels, all will go the way of past evils; what is Good, True, and Beautiful shall prevail.”
If you look a bit closer, to what I have written above, you will note several things:
Unless the faithful are led by the light and grace of God, through the Immaculata, we will miss this precious opportunity to cleanse the Church. For the evil can not be driven out by earthly wisdom, worldly tactics, which ignore God, for that mistaken approach is what led the popes into the mess they are in. We have written extensively about the corruption of the Vatican through its finances, that is, ignoring the spiritual power given to it by Christ, the true Head of the Church and instead relying on political and financial arrangements to advance its hegemony through worldly means.
The second thing is very subtle and requires a further post to elucidate, but as the faithful ignore the means given by God to cleanse the Church, that is recourse to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and her Message of Fatima, God in His providence will step in and cleanse the Church in His time honored way, as we related in the “Sixth Trumpet Update 2018”.
In that post, we wrote:
While the material chastisement of the horsemen is looming on the near horizon, the pope of our chastisement is pursuing the demolition of the faith and the nearly total destruction of the channels of sanctifying grace with brutal intensity.
Both the material and the spiritual chastisements will continue apace until mankind repents, however few remain. The longer that God is disobeyed, the more spiritual assistance will be withdrawn and the ancient enemy will appear to prevail everywhere. We are approaching rapidly the time when we will have to rely on the Rosary and the level of consecration to Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary that we have achieved.
“Have in mind therefore in what manner thou hast received and heard: and observe, and do penance. If then thou shalt not watch, I will come to thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know at what hour I will come to thee.” (Apoc. 3,3).
And so we close for another day.
For our series of posts on the homosexual corruption in the Chuch:
† Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of our hearts, Mother of the Church, do thou offer to the Eternal Father the Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ, for the conversion of poor sinners, especially our Pontiff. † Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, Thy kingdom come! Viva Cristo Rey! † St. Joseph, protect us, protect our families, protect our priests.
Please pray the Rosary, so many souls depend on it!
A disturbing and unexpected side-effect of the Chilean clerical sex abuse scandal has been the conversation reported by Juan Carlos Cruz, one of the three young men who reported priest sex abuse.
“Speaking to Spanish newspaper El País, Cruz said: “He [the Pope] told me, ‘Juan Carlos, that you are gay does not matter. God made you like this and loves you like this and I don’t care. “The pope loves you like this. You have to be happy with who you are.”
In an earlier post, we noted, “See what a master of Public Relations this pope is. He is using the unfortunate victim of clerical abuse, Cruz, to demonstrate, “Look at him, he’s a sodomite, and he’s happy! God loves Him this way, therefore sexual abuse is not abuse at all. It is merely an initiation rite into the elite!”
Thus, the pope skillfully spins the priest sex abuse scandal into a happy outcome. It can’t have been so tragic for the lad, after all, because Cruz accepts sodomy as his lifestyle now. The impression is given that if he likes it now, he must not have been too traumatized by it then. Poor Cruz doesn’t even realized that he is continuing to be a victim.
In fact, the North American Man Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) has been making just that point for years now. Their motivation is clearly self-interest, as is the Pope’s in this case. By assuring Cruz that “God loves you like this” and “The pope loves you like this”, the pope is jovially conveying the message that no harm was done, because Cruz obviously prefers sodomy so much that he makes it his personal identity.
“One of the more disturbing and deceptive aspects of the film is the usually awkward Elio suddenly becoming aggressive towards his attraction for Oliver; even after being rebuffed – he grabs the older man’s crotch. This sort of misrepresentation is reminiscent of NAMBLA and child molester talking-points who repeatedly claim that abused children instigated and enjoyed their own molestation. This delusional thought pattern by male pedophiles was horrifically explored in the 1994 documentary “Chicken Hawk: Men Who Love Boys,” in which several men explained how children supposedly flirted and seduced them.
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.
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” !]
In an earlier post “How long, O Lord, How Long” from April 2015, we wrote:
Our Lord told Sister Lucia in an apparition in Rianjo, Spain in the summer of 1931, “Make it known to My ministers, given that they follow the example of the King of France in delaying the execution of My command (to consecrate Russia), they will follow him into misfortune. It is never too late to have recourse to Jesus and Mary.“
Sister Lucia reported later that Our Lord also complained to her, “They did not wish to heed My request! … Like the King of France they will repent of it, and they will do it, but it will be late. Russia will have already spread its errors in the world, provoking wars and persecutions against the Church. The Holy Father will have much to suffer.” (from Fatima.org)
Our Lord was referring to His request to King Louis XIV of France on June 17, 1689 to solemnly consecrate his country to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Our Lord made His request known through St. Margaret Mary Alacoque and no French King publicly obeyed the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Eventually, on June 17, 1789, 100 years later, King Louis XVI was stripped of his power by the National Assembly and less than four years later, was beheaded. It is said that while he was in the Bastille, King Louis XVI attempted to consecrate France, but by that time, of course, it was far too late to achieve the desired results.
Also, in that post we observed that Pope Francis would use the Synod to force through his “irreversible changes” just prior to the Centenary of Fatima. We noted that the centenary of Fatima coincides with three other anniversaries, all of which are inimical to the Faith, that is, the 500th anniversary of Luther’s Revolution, the 300th anniversary of the establishment of Freemasonry and the 100th anniversary of the Russian Revolution. Quite a convergence of historical forces.
In our last post, on January 26, we concluded,
The reason for this repost right now is to help readers to understand that a deadline has passed. In the earlier instance in France, passing the deadline resulted in: the horrific Reign of Terror of the French Revolution, the destruction of the French monarchy, a further step in the destruction of Christendom which had begun with Luther’s revolt and lastly, the leap in power of the occult forces which appear to be all but fully in control now.
Which leads to the inevitable question – what “irreversible” chain of events has now been set in motion?
The Centenary of Fatima – A Convergence
Of the four anniversaries marked in 2017, three commemorated the powers that war against Christ, His Church and His Immaculate Mother. The three occult powers – freemasonry, protestantism and marxism, form a diabolical trinity of their own and now seem to be coalescing and gaining strength against the Woman. For the moment, they appear on the ascendency.
Although freemasonry publicly claims its founding in 1717, that is a masterful deception for this society which lives by deceit. It was from this synagogue of satan that the protestant revolution and the marxist revolution were financed and sustained.
And so we see that 2017 was a momentous occasion, wherein the battle lines were more clearly drawn as the forces assembled. It might seem a bit daunting, this Woman against the staggering array of dark forces which now appear to control even the Church. But we recall Lepanto, where thousands of battle hardened mohammedan warriors fled in terror at the sight of the Woman looming up before them, high above the vast fleet. Our Lady of the Rosary vanquished the enemy at Lepanto as the small but brave fleet of Christendom admitted afterwards. It was She and her Rosary that won the day, make no mistake.
The Vicar of Christ Leads the Way
As the forces coalesce and align for the momentous battle, one would expect to see the Vicar of Christ lead His Church to celebrate the Immaculata, Our Lady of Victory, rallying her children for the battle, helping to lead them to victory. But what did this Humble Pope of Surprises® do instead?
The unfortunate man who now occupies the See of Peter did lead his decimated and confused flock; but where? In the entire centenary year, where did Pope Francis lead the Church? Why he went to Fatima!
The Pope Goes to Fatima
Pope Francis travelled to Fatima Portugal for a two day visit May 12- 13, 2017 for the canonization of the two youngest of the Fatima seers, Francisco and Jacinta Marto.
On May 12: The Pope asked tens of thousands of pilgrims to reflect on “which Mary” they choose to venerate, “the virgin Mary from the Gospel” or “one who restrains the arm of a vengeful God?”
Note the Pope’s dishonest rhetorical device – a loaded question leading his audience to conclude that one must choose between the “Mary of the Gospel” or the Mary depicted at the vision of the Third Secret of Fatima. The Pope’s reference to “one who restrains the arm of a vengeful God” refers to the Vatican’s own text of the Third Secret released in June 2000:
“at the left of Our Lady and a little above, we saw an Angel with a flaming sword in his left hand; flashing, it gave out flames that looked as though they would set the world on fire; but they died out in contact with the splendour that Our Lady radiated towards him from her right hand: pointing to the earth with his right hand, the Angel cried out in a loud voice: ‘Penance, Penance, Penance!’ “
Pope Francis’s remark is thus an attack on Our Lady of Fatima and an attack against the teaching of Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself. For the public ministry of Our Lord began with His call to penance (“From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say: Do penance, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” (Matthew 3, 17) and the the last book of the Bible, the Apocalypse also contains Our Lord’s call to penance and warning of chastisement (“Such as I love, I rebuke and chastise. Be zealous therefore, and do penance.” (Apoc. 3, 19).
In a subsequent talk, he continued to abuse the Blessed Virgin and her Message of Fatima,
“Those who emphasise God’s punishment of sinners, he said, commit “a great injustice” to him by not recognising that sinners “are forgiven by his mercy.” … “Mercy has to be put before judgment,” he said, “and, in any case, God’s judgment will always be rendered in the light of his mercy.”… “With Mary, may each of us become a sign and sacrament of the mercy of God, who pardons always and pardons everything,” he said.
Note his charge, “Those who emphasise God’s punishment of sinners”. This applies to Our Lady of Fatima who revealed the reality of hell and the eternal punishment of sinners in a frightening vision and warned the children, “You have seen hell, where the souls of poor sinners go.” Thus, the pope accused God’s own most Blessed Mother of committing “a great injustice” to God. In this, he managed to attack both Our Lady and her Message of Fatima. And, as always, he never mentions sin or the need for penance.
On the papal airplane, ostensibly speaking of the false apparitions at Medjugorje, he struck at her yet again,
“I prefer Our Lady as mother, our mother, and not Our Lady as head of the post office who sends a message at a stated time.” …
“This isn’t Jesus’ mother,” he said. “And these alleged apparitions don’t have much value. I say this as a personal opinion, but it is clear. Who thinks that Our Lady says, ‘Come, because tomorrow at this time I will give a message to that seer?‘ No!”
Now, we all know that long before the deception of Medjugorje, Our Lady of the Rosary instructed the children of Fatima to come to the same place, at the same time for six months to receive her message.
It was quite clever of Pope Francis to embed his criticism of Our Lady of Fatima into his criticism of the false apparitions of Medjugorje, wasn’t it? So that was how Pope Bergoglio began the commemoration of the Centenary of Our Lady of Fatima in May. And so we see that Francis was leading his flock in his speeches at Fatima. And his flock, all over the world, appeared to follow docilely; other than a few rigid, pharisaical trads, few took note of this and in parishes everywhere, there was rejoicing among the dwindling flock that Pope Francis had “honored” Our Lady of Fatima on her 100th anniversary.
Then, in October, we commemorated the final month of the Fatima visits. Or did we?
What honor did Pope Francis surprise us with to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the great Miracle of the Sun at Fatima? I know, perhaps he honored her with a stamp?
The Pope’s Achievement
As October drew to a close Pope Francis chose instead of honoring Our Lady of the Rosary to honor one of her most vitriolic enemies, once again offending Our Lord Jesus Christ and His most Blessed Mother, this time in a formal and unmistakable manner:
For the centennial of Our Lady of Fatima, Pope Francis issued a commemorative postage stamp. Oops, actually he didn’t.
Actually, Pope Francis instead honored the arch-heretic Martin Luther, who destroyed so many souls by preaching many of the same errors spouted by this very same Pope. The stamp pictures a crucifixion scene from which the Mother of God has been erased and her place given to Luther. St. John is erased too, and supplanted by Philip Melancthon, the heretic who assisted Luther in his work of destruction.
And that brings us to the close of the year as Pope Francis and his Lavender Mafia used the holy feast ofChristmas to celebrate their triumph with the sordid squalor of their “Nativity Scene” in St. Peter’s Square.
As we see, the Pope continues to lead: he has insisted, quite rigidly, I might add, on his magisterial interpretation of Amoris Laetitia allowing those persistent in mortal sin to receive the Body and Blood of Christ in the Blessed Sacrament.
And he has firmly stood by his choice of the disgusting pederast-enabler Juan Barros in Chile. And again, he has refused to rescind the the honor he awarded a notorious international abortion promoter, Lilianne Ploumen, who is one of the world’s most virulent abortion promotors. For more on Ploumen’s work, see here.
Now, in 2018 as we look back over the events of 2017, we see clearly where Pope Francis is leading the Church. But very few Bishops and even fewer Cardinals will stand up and speak the truth to the faithful. In fact, the vast majority of them follow along, bleating and tweeting docilely. And just as in the example we were given by Our Lord Himself, these events are little noted as the dark tide of history sweeps past, hastening to its inevitable conclusion.
And what of the faithful? Many drift away into various methods of insulating themselves from the stresses of this intense spiritual combat, comforting themselves with devotions which do not require sacrifice. Many others drift into a narcissistic devotion to their own infallibility, blind to the snare that befell Luther, they attack faithful Catholics, lacking the humility to subject themselves to any authority but their own. In this, they resemble protestants much more than the faithful Catholics they purport to be.
Let them go, let them continue to tweet and post pictures of themselves and their food on facebook for their gullible followers. The time of winnowing passes rapidly.
And all shall be well
And all manner of thing shall be well…
For the love of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, 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. †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!
Pope Francis, bless his heart, never lets an opportunity pass to give scandal to the faithful and offend our dear Lord Jesus Christ just a bit more. This Christmas he has outdone himself utterly! Note that instead of the heavenly star leading us to the creche at Bethlehem, we have a star falling downward over a desolate jumble of images which distract from the birth of Our Lord. The Blessed Virgin is depicted spraddle-legged like a coarse woman, lacking in dignity and piety but the obvious “star of the show” is the homo-erotic man posing in the typical, over-the-top style affected by the Lavender Mafia, who now flaunt their triumph in the Bergoglian Reformation of the Vatican..
Thus Pope Francis gives us a reminder that Advent is a penitential season. This chaotic, disturbing image which the Vatican presents in place of a respectful commemoration of the true Nativity of Christ our Savior is an excellent image of this false church of the Bergoglian Reformation which has eclipsed the true Church. The backdrop of Bergoglio’s “Nativity” (Of what??) appears to be a ruined facade, and behind that backdrop is the Vatican, occupied by the Enemy at present. Actually, an iconic image, isn’t it? It is no wonder that the Abbey of Montevergine, which donated the innovative ‘Nativity of Mercy,’ houses the Marian image that has been adopted as patroness by LGBT activists in Italy, according to Lifesite News’s Diane Montagna, here.
At Return to Fatima, we have asserted many times (here)that when the popes ignored the Message of Fatima and refused to obey Our Lady of the Rosary, the hierarchy of the Church began to fall into error; until at last we saw Pope John XXIII fulfill the prophecy of Apocalypse 8 as Wormwood. For it was he who made bitter the sacred waters of the faith, causing many souls to die; and who, of course, is hailed as a “saint” by the modernist occupiers.
In our post, “The Fifth Trumpet“, we explained that the second Fallen Star is Pope Paul VI who opened the bottomless pit, and brought in the smoke of satan, allowing the demons of hell access to the heart of the Church, This was also foreseen by Pope Leo XIII who saw the Vatican literally crawling with demons, swarming all over it.
Our archives contain many posts applying Apocalypse 8-13 to these exact times. We also have articles about Father Malachi Martin’s warning of the enthronement of Lucifer in the Vatican. Now note this well: The preliminary enthronement of Lucifer which occurred in the time of Paul VI, the second Fallen Star, had to be completed by the enthronement within 50 years of Lucifer within the Vatican. Not by proxy as occurred the first time, but fully and completely within the Vatican itself.
We posited that this was done shortly after Bergoglio took possession. According to Fr. Malachi Martin, unless this was accomplished within 50 years, the ancient enemy would have failed. Now it is self-evident that the Ancient Enemy has not failed under Pope Francis but has gotten ever bolder.
Those who doubt this have only to observe the satanic mockery presented as a Nativity Scene at the Bergoglian Vatican this year. And see the Fallen Star enshrined there for all to hail the Ancient Enemy who now believes that he rules.
And now, what next? What do you think may happen? Perhaps we may find some insight if we return to the Apocalypse. The second Fallen Star opened the bottomless pit (the preliminary enthronement), which allowed the smoke of Satan into the Church, and brought into the heart of the Church the locusts, predatory modernists and sodomites which attack the Church in her doctrines and her practice. This action, initiated by Pope Paul VI was in time brought to fruition by the election of Jorge Bergoglio as Pope Francis. And he has fulfilled the plan almost perfectly, as we see in the Nativity Scene of 2017, exactly one hundred years after our Lady warned of this in her true message at Fatima.
Returning to Apocalypse 9, after the time of the Fifth Trumpet (Paul VI, culminating in Bergoglio), comes the Sixth Trumpet.
A king, the angel of the bottomless pit; whose name in Hebrew is Abaddon, and in Greek Apollyon; in Latin Exterminans, One woe is past, and behold there come yet two woes more hereafter. And the sixth angel sounded the trumpet: and I heard a voice from the four horns of the great altar, which is before the eyes of God, Saying to the sixth angel, who had the trumpet: Loose the four angels, who are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, who were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year: for to kill the third part of men.
And the number of the army of horsemen was twenty thousand times ten thousand. And I heard the number of them. And thus I saw the horses in the vision: and they that sat on them, had breastplates of fire and of hyacinth and of brimstone, and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions: and from their mouths proceeded fire, and smoke, and brimstone. And by these three plagues was slain the third part of men, by the fire and by the smoke and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths. For the power of the horses is in their mouths, and in their tails. For, their tails are like to serpents, and have heads: and with them they hurt. And the rest of the men, who were not slain by these plagues, did not do penance from the works of their hands, that they should not adore devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and wood, which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk.
Neither did they penance from their murders, nor from their sorceries, nor from their fornication, nor from their thefts. (Apoc. 9).
And so we see an intimation of what is to come, that is the Horsemen. We explained who these horsemen were in our earlier post, The Sixth Angel. Please note this. This shall come about precisely because of the Laodicean indifference of the majority of Catholics.
The Laodiceans who continue to occupy the pews in this new Church of Bergoglio defend the Bergoglian Nativity Scene, steadfastly refusing to see what is clear to all who have not abandoned the faith. As St. John states in the Apocalypse, the locusts cannot harm those whose faith is strong, that is green, living things, (souls remaining in the state of grace) but only those whose faith has grown lukewarm, that is Laodiceans, to whom Our Lord says,
“…Thou art neither cold, nor hot. I would thou wert cold, or hot. But because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold, nor hot, I will begin to vomit thee out of my mouth. Because thou sayest: I am rich, and made wealthy, and have need of nothing: and knowest not, that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked. … Such as I love, I rebuke and chastise. Be zealous therefore, and do penance. Behold, I stand at the gate, and knock. If any man shall hear my voice, and open to me the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with Me.” (link)
“These are times of sifting. Our Divine Lord is standing in the Church: “His fan is in His hand, and He will thoroughly cleanse His (own) and He will gather the grain into His barn, and will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.” It is a time of trial, when “some of the learned shall fall,” and those only shall be saved who are steadfast to the end.”
With each new assault on the Faith, many faithful Catholics are outraged and angered and as the predations of this papacy continue, many lose faith. We must not lose faith! Let your outrage be the impetus for renewing your consecration to the Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Please reread Our Lord’s message to the Laodiceans above. Now is the time to open our hearts to the necessary chastisement! When God chastens us, the proper response is repentance in humility and obedience – not belligerent revolt. If we accept this spiritual chastisement as the merciful work of Our Lord; accepting it as Sister Josefa Menendez accepted the Crown of Thorns offered her by Our Lord Himself, we too shall be victorious over this deluge of sin and misery. For after the Passion and Death, there will come the glorious Resurrection.
Pope Francis and his Lavender Mafia have been allowed to obscure the true Nativity with their disgusting mockery, but we the faithful children of Mary see the Nativity as it is, for it is imprinted on our hearts.
Remember always, “Pray the Rosary and confound satan and all his works and pomps”.
“Our Lord Jesus Christ has always defended the honor of His Mother.” (Sister Lucia of Fatima to Father Fuentes)
O my Jesus, forgive us our sins and save us from the fires of hell. Lead all souls to heaven, especially those most in need of Thy mercy.
“By thy pure and Immaculate Conception, O Mary, obtain for me the conversion of Russia, Spain, Portugal, Europe, and the whole world.” (Our Lord Jesus Christ gave us this prayer; it is an essential part of the Fatima Message.)
Our Lady of the Rosary, help of Christians, Victorious over all heresies, lead us to victory!
~ by evensong and peregrine, for love of the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, Queen of the most Holy Rosary, Queen of our hearts.
V: Vouchsafe that I may praise thee, O Sacred Virgin!
R: Give me strength against thine enemies!
“Fear them not. For nothing is covered that shall not be revealed: nor hid, that shall not be known.”
Our natural inclination is to turn away from what is especially degrading. we want to cover our revered leaders when they appear before the world in shameful, naked disarray, protect them from the scorn of the hateful world. And so Catholics have attempted, with little success to shore up the ruins as our “Holy Fathers” have continued to shelter and even promote the most pernicious evils within the bosom of the Church. The result has been disastrous, of that there can be no doubt and the evil within has grown in the shadows and now is bursting forth, as was inevitable.
In previous posts we have discussed the latest scandal at the Vatican, and suggested reference to St. Catherine of Siena. Today, we will close with considering the foregoing in light of the prophecies of Pope Leo XIII and Cardinal Manning.
The fact that Msgr. Capozzi partied in regal splendor in the same apartment that Cardinal Ratzinger lived in when he was head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, and drove a luxury car with the very prized Vatican plates, making him immune from police searches proves that he was highly regarded by powerful Vatican personages. Without that indulgent support of a Prince of the Church, Capozzi could not have had his orgies, or the flat, or the luxury car he used for drug smuggling. Thus, whether or not Pope Francis admits it, this scandal is laid at his humble feet. It would be a serious mistake to disregard the importance of this episode.
a reliable senior member of the curia has told the Register that he has heard from “multiple sources” that the story is true, including from another senior curial figure. He said the extent of homosexual practice in the Vatican has “never been worse,” despite efforts begun by Benedict XVI to root out sexual deviancy from the curia after the Vatileaks scandal of 2012.
“The precise details of the reported events in the CDF therefore remain open to question, but the substance of the story appears to be true. If so, many would find such behavior taking place in the Holy Office not only unconscionable but also highly sacrilegious.
And so, we see that under Pope Francis, homosexual activity in the Vatican “has never been worse” and that even to seasoned observers of the tragic auto-demolition of the faith, this latest sordid event is deemed sacrilegious. Yet most Catholic media either downplay the event or ignore it entirely. You see in so much of the coverage the unsubstantiated claim that “Pope Francis is furious!” Note that Bergoglio’s purported “fury” does not clarify whether Pope Francis is furious that homosexual prelates are dragging the Vatican into the gutters or whether he is furious because this sordid episode came to light. But since Bergoglio has chosen to live in the Guest House of his intimate friend Msgr. Ricca, and even to promote him to Prelate of the Vatican Bank, one must suspect it is the latter cause which perturbs his serenity.
I apologise for the past few articles regarding the corruption in the Vatican. It is unpleasant to talk about but
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.
Today, we’ll follow up on some loose ends from our last post, explaining them in the light of current trends in the Bergoglian Vatican.
From Chapter 9, The Apocalypse, verses 1-5, we read:
“And the fifth angel sounded the trumpet, and I saw a star fall from heaven upon the earth, and there was given to him the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit: and the smoke of the pit arose, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened with the smoke of the pit. And from the smoke of the pit there came out locusts upon the earth. And power was given to them, as the scorpions of the earth have power: And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, nor any green thing, nor any tree: but only the men who have not the sign of God on their foreheads. And it was given unto them that they should not kill them; but that they should torment them five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion when he striketh a man.”
As we stated previously, Paul VI was the Fallen Star to whom the key to hell had been given. The Fallen Star was given a key, with which he opened the bottomless pit. The smoke of the pit arose, darkening the sun, and out of the smoke came locusts. The darkness of the sun is a spiritual disorientation, thus, another reference to the conciliar church. The locusts could not harm any green thing, but only harm “men who have not the sign of God on their foreheads”. The reference to not harming “any green thing” refers to being unable to harm those with living faith, that is, truly faithful Catholics. The scripture reference to five months indicates that these locusts will only hold power for a limited time. We believe that the five months indicates the roughly 50 years of the infestation of the Church by the spiritual, moral, and financial corruption of Popes John, Paul and their successors, culminating in this current occupant, the Pope of Affliction.
Although John XXIII during his brief reign, did much to set the stage for the current mess in the Vatican, it was Paul VI who really got the homosexual and satanic powers established. On his watch, several transforming trends raced through the church, contributing to the current disaster. We all know the role Paul VI had in corrupting the Mass and the sacraments, abolishing the Oath Against Modernism and so on. But Paul achieved so much more for his Master!
