Church Militant “Den of Thieves” hits close to home

There’s a lot more to this, and it hits close to home. I knew many of these people, and more. There are impossible coincidences, call them leads, that must be taken up for the good of the Church. This is all much bigger than what is presented here. Church Militant has presented an opening salvo. Those who know it, know it. Great work. Thanks for shaking things up Church Militant!

I gotta tell you, this documentary brought back a lot of memories, had many things from years ago all of a sudden make sense, so many things clicking into place. This set me on my heels. Stunning, literally. This is why I’ve been subdued, not posting on this blog for some time. I guess only now am I realizing how deeply the trauma went. Stupid me. Stupid me. I am so naïve. I need to grow up. This documentary has helped me to do just that. It’s really very personal.

We are blessed to live in such a time. Thank you, Jesus.

Galatians 2:11 Peter stood condemned. Paul charitably corrected Peter.

Ὅτε δὲ ἦλθεν Κηφᾶς εἰς Ἀντιόχειαν, κατὰ πρόσωπον αὐτῷ ἀντέστην, ὅτι κατεγνωσμένος ἦν·

  • Galatians 2:11 — “When Cephas [=Rock=Peter] came to Antioch, I [Paul] opposed him to his face [yep, that’s literal, “to his face”], because he was being perfectly condemned.”

That Paul uses the Aramaic translation of Peter’s name, Cephas – Rock – is an incisive and well deserved emphasis of mockery against Peter, as being a “Rock” is exactly what he was not being. Peter allowed himself to be reduced to the shifting sands of relativism. That description, κατεγνωσμένος, a perfect passive participle – refers to Peter perfectly continuing to be perfectly condemned. This refers to Peter’s blasphemy of our redemption in Christ Jesus with Peter insisting that that redemption is useless, to be discarded, thrown away, spit on, because we should all instead just follow the old pedagogical punishments of circumcision, you know, for the sake of passing political correctness (like that‘s going to save us). Peter was a bullshit artist, and Paul called him out on it.

In fact, etymologically, to be pedantic about it, κατεγνωσμένος, comes from κατά (against) and γνῶσις (knowledge), so: knowledge that is held against someone. Paul’s judgment against Peter was consonant with God’s Living Truth. Thus, Peter stands condemned, perfectly.

  • Paul made the correction and thus became a saint.
  • Peter took the correction and thus became a saint.

That’s so very Catholic. We are to correct and admonish one another, helping each other be humble before Christ Jesus. We gotta get to heaven. We depend also on such admonishments. And it was not Paul who was bullying Peter. Peter was abusing his authority.

Not to correct someone is to be condemned to hell, and to assist others in being condemned to hell.

To correct someone is a great act of charity. One risks being smacked down by the one being corrected.

The ugliest thing in the world is when the one being corrected attacks the one correcting. That’s ingratitude that cries out to heaven for vengeance. God is The Authority. God hates abuse of authority.

Remember that in all this Paul is, in his own words, like an abortion compared to the super-apostles. Peter is “powerful”, the one on whom the Church is founded by the Son of the Living God. Peter could have thrown a self-entitled “Karen” tantrum embarrassing himself all the more, and the entire Church. Can you imagine that cataclysmic disturbance this would have caused in the early Church. The Church would continue, but wounded. Thank God Peter converted once again.

But now there’s a law in the Code of Canon Law which can illegitimately but very possibly be used by the powers that be to hurt with brutal hypocrisy those who would correct ecclesiastical superiors:

  • Canon 1373. A person who publicly incites hatred or animosity against the Apostolic See or the Ordinary because of some act of ecclesiastical office or duty, or who provokes disobedience against them, is to be punished by interdict or other just penalties.

For a bishop, even the bishop of Rome, to use such a law over against someone who is doing them the charitable courtesy of correcting them for evil behavior or the corruption of doctrine and morals is, to repeat, a supreme abuse of authority, for which, all the more, they need to be called out.

Is it easy for the upper echelon to kick those below them in the teeth, sending them into a coma, disallowing them to preach, to hear Confessions, to offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass? This is so very, very cruel. Demonic, really.

Pope Francis once gave good advice about this; “Humility, humility, humility.” Yep.

If one offers a necessary correction, this is, in and of itself, a justified attack on all that which is self-absorbed, promethean, neo-pelagianistic,, neo-gnostic, casuistic, “Karen”-self-entitled entrenchment into rigidity that betrays deeper psychological and spiritual problems… Whew!

The answer by the cowardly hissy-fit crowd is, of course, to say such things about those who instead are just doing their best to be charitable and courteous, whatever the cost.

Those who charitably correct their brothers are not hurt in the least by those who would smack them down. Instead, they are filled all the more with joy at having the opportunity to suffer for the Holy Name of Jesus.

And given all those who are necessarily correcting the powers that be these because of all that needs to be corrected, I’d like to suggest to the powers that be that need correcting not to be so arrogant in slamming those who risk all to make that correction. They are vulnerable, not powerful, and it is an almost inescapable temptation to simply lash out against them. Don’t do it. Just take the correction, and convert. That Christ Jesus will come to judge the living and the dead and the world by fire is no joke. You should, instead, be thankful, first of all to Jesus who redeemed us all and wants that “the many” be saved.

Be one of “the many.”

DOS tells Catholics they have no free exercise of religion. Flying flag-rantly against Jesus.

If you’re an American citizen in good standing and a true Catholic you are disinvited to visit the United States Embassy to the Holy See.

Jn 3:16 is not the only 3:16 in the Bible. There’s Revelation 3:16, about God vomiting the idiots out of His mouth.

  • “But Father George! Father George! It’s just “Pride Month!” Get over it!”

Actually, this is more likely to be a thanksgiving to Pope Francis for his pro-homosexualist statements and his recent appointments of militant homosexualists.

Parolin: “Stop Burke!” Everyone else: “Cardinal Burke is unstoppable.”

Read the whole story over at ChurchMilitant.

My comment: I wrote to my superiors in the Holy See recently about the conditions of why I’m un-jabbed and whether because of that circumstance I would be refused entry into Vatican City for the upcoming meeting of the Missionaries of Mercy. The reply made it extremely clear that my entry would be nigh impossible and probably impossible and that I should use extreme prudence in deciding whether I should even try to attempt to make an attempt to go. Whatever. I’ll wait until next time, if there is such.

Kicking Cardinal Burke in the teeth was a bit more severe. After all, he’s a prince of the Church. I’m hardly a serf. By the time he showed up the other day at the entrance to the Congregation for Saints Italy had already dropped its most draconian restrictions, but the Vatican insisted on singling him out for especially terrible treatment. Meanwhile, un-jabbed and having had covid, he’s got the best anti-bodies in the world, a zillion times better than the jabbed. The jabbed get covid more easily and spread covid more easily. This isn’t about covid. This is about raw power cut off from justice for the sake of raw power. Non-compliance must be punished. Yep. “Stop being pro-life, Cardinal Burke! Stop keeping the commandments! Stop loving the Lord God with all your heart and soul and mind and strength!

I’m so happy I am not on a plane right now to go the Missionaries of Mercy meeting taking place this Divine Mercy Weekend. I would have been turned away, not by Italy, but by the Vatican. There’s no justice nor mercy for the unborn or the born who protect the unborn.

Cardinal Burke was on his way to the Congregation for Saints. That’s interesting. If that involves the cause of someone for beatification or sainthood you gotta know that that person just became a super-patron-saint of the good Cardinal. I love that. :-)

Vatican Bank’s new excuse for their ongoing embezzlement (imnsho): “Russia”. Humorous if it didn’t make you cry.

That’s a screen shot of the opening email screen above. Below is the (slightly edited) text:

Città del Vaticano

Avviso sulla Sicurezza Informatica.

Caro Cliente,

gli effetti della mutata situazione geopolitica e del conflitto in corso tra Russia e Ucraina hanno costretto
tutti gli operatori e i cittadini a considerare con maggiore attenzione la questione della sicurezza digitale
e ad alzare il livello di guardia verso le possibili intrusioni nei sistemi informatici.

Si tratta di un fenomeno che aveva già registrato un notevole incremento negli ultimi tempi e che è
cresciuto ulteriormente in conseguenza dei nuovi scenari generati dal conflitto, tanto in ambito
finanziario quanto in altri settori che interessano la nostra vita quotidiana (commercio, viabilità, salute,
istruzione…).

Anche per tale ragione l’Istituto per le Opere di Religione, che già opera con standard e livelli di sicurezza
digitale molto elevati, ha rafforzato i propri presidi informatici di difesa.

In questo contesto e per la sua tutela, le rinnoviamo l’invito a non rispondere ad eventuali richieste di
informazioni in merito ai suoi dati personali o ai suoi servizi finanziari.

Come lei ben sa, non è prassi del personale del nostro Istituto richiede telefonicamente o via email
l’invio di dati sensibili o di codici.

Qualora avesse anche solo il sospetto di una possibile intrusione nei suoi profili digitali non esiti a
contattarci

Indirizzo email: [/////]

Indirizzo di posta: [/////]

per verificare ed eventualmente reagire prontamente per proteggere il suo patrimonio.

La barriera di difesa dei suoi dati si completa solo attraverso una collaborazione costante tra lei e il

riferimenti sensibili.

Grazie in anticipo per la collaborazione.

Restiamo a sua completa disposizione e non esiti a contattarci per ogni eventuale chiarimento o
segnalazione su quanto sopra esposto.

Information Security Notice.

Dear Customer,

the effects of the changed geopolitical situation and the ongoing conflict between Russia and Ukraine have forced all operators and citizens to consider the issue of digital security with greater attention
and to raise the level of guard against possible intrusions into computer systems.

This is a phenomenon which had already registered a significant increase in recent times and which has
grown further as a result of the new scenarios generated by the conflict, both in the financial sector and in other sectors that affect our daily life (commerce, roads, health, education…).

For this reason too, the Institute for Works of Religion [IOR], which already operates with very high standards and levels of digital security, has strengthened its IT defense systems.

In this context and for your protection, we renew the invitation not to respond to any requests for
information regarding your personal data or financial services.

As you well know, it is not the practice of the staff of our Institute to request the sending of sensitive data or codes by phone or email.

If you have even the suspicion of a possible intrusion into your digital profiles, do not hesitate to contact us Email address: [/////]

to verify and possibly react promptly to protect your assets.

The barrier of defense of your data is completed only through a constant collaboration between you and our staff, to which we invite you to report any suspected attempt of appropriation of your sensitive references.

Thanks in advance for your cooperation.

We remain at your complete disposal and do not hesitate to contact us for any clarification or report on the above.


That would be right. The old double reverse:

  • “We’re the government, and we’re here to help you. There are electronic phishing schemes from which we want to protect you, so, just please electronically send us all your personal details and codes and it’ll all be good, because we never otherwise electronically ask for your personal details and codes as we have throughout the years, you know, because we’re nice!”

This is all CYA in my opinion. This is blaming the victim in my opinion. If what is said is true, then they’ve been hacked and run by “Russia! Russia! Russia!” (as Tucker would say) for very many years indeed, long before Pope Benedict XVI abdicated, really a long time before Putin seriously thought about invading Ukraine.

The IOR (Vatican Bank) have been asking me – electronically – for my personal details and codes and such for all those years. Way back in the day I asked for confirmation from a friend in the Holy See as to the legitimacy of this request. He went to the IOR, “Vatican Bank”, for me to do just this. All legit, he reported. That was years and years ago. Since I still didn’t trust this reporting (sorry), I called the IOR a number of times and had extended conversations with any number of high-up officials. It was all legit, all the accusations of money laundering and the financing of international terrorism to as to force the electronic sending of personal details and codes, you know, to avoid the confiscation of account by IOR. A number of times more recently IOR tried this B.S. again and again. And then, hilariously, the IAS (IFRS) hinted to me about their oversight of the shenanigans of the IOR. Don’t forget, there’s a trial that’s ongoing about weirdnesses regarding hundreds and hundreds of millions of dollars that involves the IOR. Who can the Vatican blame when monies of accounts disappear? Putin! Pfft.

I’ve given up on recovering my two accounts at the IOR long ago. I figure that they’re likely stealing as much money as possible and squirreling it all away before all their B.S. hits the fan.

But maybe I’m wrong about all this. Maybe they’re just not thinking clearly. Maybe I’m not. But none of this adds up: “Send us all your details and codes electronically because we forbid you to enter into Vatican City because of Covid. We’ve asked you to do this electronically for years and years and years, which is why we say that we never ask for that information electronically! And we are continuing to accuse you of money laundering and the financing of international terrorism as we always have so as to force you to cooperate in our embezzling of your accounts. So, there! Take that dear client.”

That actually sounds like a confession to me.

Oh. I forgot. IOR already has all my personal details and codes. So, they don’t need to do this double-reverse phishing. That’s a clever phishing scheme indeed. “We already have all your details and codes so send us your details and codes electronically now so that we can protect you from recent phishing schemes to get your details and codes electronically.”

Yep.

And it’s all done though the domains of Vatican City State “Holy See.” Let’s see…

Hey! Maybe this is a low-level employee at IOR who has no access to the data bases other than email addresses of clients, you know, to send out Christmas and Easter greetings, and he’s phishing for the rest. With some help of the Vatican postal service, it’s all easy peasy. You only need to cash in on a few “dead” accounts, and then run.

Putin is just a scapegoat.

Pope Francis dismisses bishop w/o cause [read: he’s against mandates]. Bishop’s epic response, for the history books. Must read.

That bishop is being used as an example: Go against Covid mandates, get your throat slit by the Pope.

  • No matter that this bishop is so young, with decades of ministry in front of him.
  • No matter that the “vaccines” not only do nothing to immunize against Covid, but have people get it more readily and in a worse manner, and because of which there are untold numbers of injuries and deaths.
  • No matter that the “vaccines” are tainted by the murder of healthy babies for their research, development, testing. That’s irrelevant. Feel the power!
  • No matter that, world-wide, this rubbish is over, with pretty much all “cases” having zero symptoms.

But, that’s all expected, right? Bishops have been cancelling priests all over the world for not getting jabbed, and the Pope has done nothing about it; instead, the Pope is now moving on bishops who do not themselves mandate the “vaccine.”

Good on this bishop for doing the right thing. But there’s more.

The Vatican announced that Pope Francis had relieved him of his duties, but the bishop did not resign. He’s going to force a canonical process against himself, you know, at least to get something on paper. Meanwhile, the Nuncio already told him that he committed no crime. Here’s his fare-ye-well on the diocesan website. Very, very telling. My emphases in bold:


Declaración del Obispo Daniel Fernández Torres [I tidied up the google translation:]

When you receive the news of my substitution as bishop in charge of the Diocese of Arecibo, I want you to know that it is not for me to explain a decision that I cannot explain myself, even if I accept it with the patience of Christ for the good of the Church. Nor is it up to you to judge what only God and history will do at the time.

In reacting to what happened, I feel blessed to suffer persecution and slander (see Matthew 5:10-11) for announcing the truth of the dignity of man in circumstances like the current ones in which “it is uncomfortable: he opposes our actions… ” (Wisdom 2:12). Today I can hold my head high, even being imperfect and a sinner, knowing that I have done the right thing and that gives me a lot of inner peace. I am also comforted by the Hebrew meaning of the name Daniel, which I providentially received at my baptism, “God is my judge.”

I am very sorry that in the Church where mercy is preached so much, in practice some lack the slightest sense of justice. I have not been prosecuted, nor have I been formally accused of anything, and one day the Apostolic Delegate simply communicated to me verbally that Rome was asking me to resign. Now a successor of the apostles is replaced without even undertaking what would be a proper canonical process to remove a parish priest.

I was informed that I had not committed any crime but that I allegedly “had not been obedient to the Pope nor had I had sufficient communion with my brother bishops of Puerto Rico.” It was suggested to me that if I resigned from the diocese I would remain at the service of the Church in case I was needed in another position at some point, an offer that actually proves my innocence. However, I did not resign because I did not want to become an accomplice in a totally unjust action and that even now I am reluctant to think that it could happen in our Church.

This personal experience, on the other hand, has helped me realize in a new way the serious responsibility that all bishops have in the government of the Church, which is apostolic and not pyramidal, synodal and not autocratic. I think that for quite some time many bishops have been watching with concern what is happening in the Church and we have resisted believing what is happening. Today more than ever we must remember our call to be prophets.

  • [IMPORTANT:] These are difficult times, but let’s not lose hope. The words of Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI, being a priest, can encourage us: “It seems certain to me that very difficult times await the Church. Her real crisis has barely begun yet. You have to count on strong shocks. But I am also totally sure of what will remain in the end: not the Church of political worship, already lifeless, but the Church of faith. Certainly she will no longer be the dominant force in society to the extent that she was until recently. But it will flourish again and become visible to human beings as the homeland that gives them life and hope beyond death.”

I humbly celebrate how much we have been able to do together from the Diocese of Arecibo, in these almost twelve years, in youth and vocational ministry, in the struggle for the dignity of human love, family and respect for life, in the freedom of Church against political interference, in the formation of holy priests and in having given a “House” to the Virgin in our diocesan Sanctuary. If for trying to be faithful to God I am replaced in office, it is worth it, because as bishop I can be useful to the Church with my own testimony. I remember the words of Saint John of Ávila: “how honored we are to be dishonored for seeking the honor of God”.

I express my communion in the Catholic faith, with the Pope and my brothers in the episcopate, despite my perplexity at an incomprehensible arbitrariness. And if, from now on, I can be of any service to you, I declare my full availability.

Today and always my greatest gratitude to God and Our Lady of Perpetual Help, our patron saint. Thanks also to all the priests for being a good and faithful clergy. Thank you to all the faithful of my beloved Diocese of Arecibo for your love and prayers. Thank you to all the bishopric staff for being an extended family. Thanks to my family for their unconditional support always. Thanks also to my brothers from different Christian confessions for the times when together we raise our voice in defense of the family.

God bless you all. In Christ dead and risen, +Daniel


Yes, well, if the slitting of this good bishop’s throat by the Pope is being used as an example to cool the jets of any other bishop in the world who is trying to be faithful, it backfired. At least I myself, as a way-out-of-the-way parish priest in the tiniest parish in these USA, am fired up by this bishop’s great example in being faithful to the One Good Shephard, Christ Jesus our Lord, our God, our All.

Thank you, Bishop Daniel Fernández Torres. Thank you.

Two things:

(1) Let’s all of us say a prayer for Bishop Daniel and his Diocese: Hail Mary…

(2) Let’s all of us say a prayer for Pope Francis: Hail Mary…

This kind of thing has been going on for a long time with the priests who are being cancelled daily. But this obscene persecution now of bishops by way of power without justice, power without service, power just to inflict real harm against the Lord’s anointed is a turning point downward in the entire Church in the world because of the way this tyranny has been flaunted by the Pope and the Nuncio and the Vatican Press Office. Again, that you, good Bishop Daniel, for leading the way to Jesus. Jesus is the One, the only One.

Vatican Bank VIRTUS® IAS Money-Launderer & Terrorist Fr Byers: Timeline. To laugh & to cry

The other day I put up a post surmising what a visitor to this blog from the Holy See was perusing for eight and a half minutes, necessarily settling on UPDATE: VIRTUS® same-sex porn encouragement? That would be right. I think I’m correct on that, with the reasons why piling up… So, I’ve taken that post down and this is the rewrite.

It was Father Gordon J. MacRae who first alerted me to some weird hits from the Holy See over on his blog. This is all I saw at first glance (sorry about the screen-shot from the phone):

So, just some guy, thought I, over in the Holy See who googled yours truly over at Father Gordon J. MacRae’s blog, beyondthesestonewalls. Whatever. Then he went to Father Gordon’s Home page and his About page, all in one minute 15 seconds. I wondered if this guy also checked out my blog. If he did, he would have seen the VIRTUS® post up top the first page.

I figured this might be someone in the Holy See implicated by what I had written. I can name names. But, whatever. Boring.

But the angels were at work, as always. I was then informed that the URL of that post on VIRTUS® encouraging showing porn to minors was sent out to secular authorities. Because of various legal, political, financial relationships, that URL also had to makes it’s way from those to whom it was originally sent to ecclesiastical authorities, surely both here and across the pond. But, again, whatever. My attitude was: let’s see what happens. Just to say, I’m guessing that this will intensify in the next days, with more secular authorities becoming involved, those who have some bite, and with Church authorities on the run.

I don’t know why, but I went back to those stats. Maybe there’s something I missed. The guy went to the tag on my name https://beyondthesestonewalls.com/posts/tag/Father+George+David+Byers and, scrolling down that page, probably opened two of the posts coming up with that tag by way of a right-mouse-click menu:

If only you knew those not named but who are involved. But that might be coming.

But wait, thought I. Let me drill down into the detailed view:

Usually, it’s just some generic domain in Vatican City State. I’ve never seen this before: “ias.va“. That must be something financial. Was that the same over on my blog?

Time to go to investopedia for a summary:

  • “International Accounting Standards (IAS) are older accounting standards issued by the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB), an independent international standard-setting body based in London. The IAS were replaced in 2001 by International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS).”

Yes, well, ias.va is just the name of the domain they reserved decades ago for those independently working the IAS standards in this tiny nation-state. They’re not going to rename the domain just because the standards themselves are now called IFRS. No one does that. If they were that persnickety, they might want to update their Windows 7 to something like, I don’t know, Linux. I’m no techy, but I do know that this is typical of the Vatican: yesterday’s technology tomorrow.

But let’s review some points long-time readers are familiar with:

  • For quite some time now, I.O.R. (Vatican Bank) has been sending me various communications informing me that I’m being investigated for money laundering and the funding of terrorism. I’m not so sure that this was based on the activities of IAS, that is, IFRS. As longtime readers know, I’ve been sending IOR snarky replies, calling them out on being discourteous, baiting them to provide me with more information. They actually changed their ways and means each time according to my indications. I’m impressed. While that discourteousness surely was sent to all clients (and I do have two small dormant bank accounts at Vatican Bank), I have to wonder what the insistence was about. Was it about temporarily discrediting me concerning the next points?
  • As all y’all know, the judge in “The Trial” over in the Vatican has, just in these last days, thrown out nine objections of ex-“Cardinal” Giovanni Angelo Becciu, and so the trial is going forward. There are hundreds of millions of dollars in question. This is all extremely embarrassing for everything financial in the Vatican. These hits from IAS (IFRS) came in just as “The Trial” is resuming.
  • It was mid-August 2018 when Archbishop Viganò complained about now ex-“Cardinal” Theodore McCarrick. Apart from that, by way of another situation involving McCarrick, just weeks later, in early-mid September 2018, I headed over to Rome to have a letter put into the hands of Pope Francis, still sealed, bypassing the Nunciature, bypassing the Secretariat of State, bypassing the Pontifical Family. What I did hurt the activities of McCarrick extremely severely. People tell me that was bad for those wanting personal vengeance on him, but let’s put that in perspective with his activities in China, which had to stop. In doing this, I made untold enemies, also with many in high finance. By the way, McCarrick and Becciu were good friends. With McCarrick gone, all bets are off for the survival of the rest.
  • I bet those at IAS (IFRS), being independent, are sick of the lavender mafia running everything into the ground. I bet they were cheering on the former head of intel and security and law enforcement who was fired by Francis the moment he was about to make arrests of those involved. I had met with him…
  • Oh! And wait! There’s more! ;-) I just now, four days later, bothered to look at the timeline of the judge’s 90 minute decision against the ten defendants, including “Cardinal” Becciu, McCarrick’s friend, and the hits on Father Gordon J. MacRae’s blog and mine. The judge’s decision was read out late Tuesday morning, March 1, 2022. Then it was lunch time. Lot’s of interesting conversations over lunch, I bet. One of those was surely with a few people doing financial investigations at IAS (IFRS). The second they got back to their computers, they took stock of the situation with named hits (which is quite impossible).

Let me explain. Those at IAS (IFRS) are professional, independent investigators using the internet, a lot. They know how it works. They’re like any other high-end intel crowd, say, the FBI or CIA or NSA, whatever. They know exactly what they are doing. You will never see such people using such a domain leaving their footprints all over multiple blogs of civilians providing motive of their activities unless they want you to see them at work. Have they successfully baited this response out of me. Sure. I thank them for the opportunity. And encourage them to continue. A message to them: All y’all are on the right path.

Jorge “The Heretic” Bergoglio smashes the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith?

You have heard that it’s been said that on February 14, 2022, Pope Francis let us know about his latest motu proprio, Fidem servare, by which he divided up a bit more incisively the “Holy Office” into a section, effectively, for the old Promoter of Justice crowd and another section for the old Doctrine of the Faith crowd, and that this quite complete break (though under one Prefect) weakens the punch of executive action from the doctrinal section. I’m not so sure about that. Not at all. I think it’s the other way around.

There already was a division along these lines, more or less. But now, those who are faithful are wide open to being condemned as heretics and excommunicated without much oversight. The doctrinal crowd are supposed to follow the old Agendi ratio in doctrinarum examine, which fully encourages the declaration of excommunications which cannot be appealed. From my point of view, this gives the heretics more power to do damage to the faithful of the Lord’s Little Flock. I ask, from my perspective as a nothing-priest in the smallest parish of North America in the most remote area of Appalachia:

Why is it these days that believing in any and all the Catholic Creeds of old – the Apostles Creed (usually recited before the Holy Rosary), the Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed (often recited at Holy Mass) and the Athanasian Creed (usually recited, for instance, during exorcisms) – why is it, I ask, that believing in all the articles of Faith (Traditiones as the first dogmatic decree of the Fourth Session of the Trent called them) these days is bound to make one ♬ feel ♬ that one is oneself a heretic? Am I to ♬ feel ♬ guilty for what would, in any other time, be a basic prerequisite for being a priest, nothing special, just believing in the faith? Am I to ♬ feel ♬ guilty for upholding the integrity of the Sacraments? Am I to ♬ feel ♬ guilty for encouraging with joy and charity the following of the Commandments not as mere sometimes-suggestions but as Commandments which you do out of love of Jesus?

For me, as a priest just trying to do the right thing, this ♬ feeling ♬ of guilt comes about because so very many of my fellow priests and bishops are heretic apostates, and I, in my fallen human nature, ♬ feel ♬ left behind. I gotta tell you, that’s momentarily annoying, like for a nano-second, and is a ♬ feeling ♬ replaced instantaneously by the righteous aggression of an Elijah on Mount Carmel: If you think that the demon-idol Pachamama to whom human sacrifice is made is a demon-goddess who rules over all, then follow her; if you think that the Lord God is the one and only God, then follow Him. There is no middle ground: “Thou shalt not have strange gods before thee.”

We can multiply examples of blasphemy and heresy and apostacy and violent aggression. Should we bring up all the example of insulting Christ Jesus and His Immaculate Mother? Should we bring up the solicitation of sin in the encouragement of absolving people from sin that they don’t think is a sin and for which they are not repentant, “accompanying” them? Are we to be forced to be subject to abortion tainted “vaccines”? Are we to reject that the Sacrifice of Jesus has relevancy to the life of the parish? Etc.

Let me just speak to one example which goes to the very foundation of the Church, which to change is to reject the Church. These are just some random thoughts, incomplete, about infallibility, which are ever more necessary to express in these confusing, ambiguous times, not in any particular order:

  • Infallibility is a negative expression. I’m not talking about ♬ negative vibes ♬ or ♬ negative feelings ♬. Infallibility refers to the inability to fail. That’s it.
  • Now buckle your seatbelt: Infallibility does not refer to any positive inspiration or ♬ positive feelings ♬, even if much more abstractly, as if to some sort of historical movement of dialogue, in which, although plenty of mistakes are made, generally things go toward an evolutionary advancement, because, yeah, you know, like a perpetual dialogue of right and wrong but somehow right includes wrong and that’s somehow more right than just right or wrong because we’re all together in total contradiction to each other, but all together, you know, in Hegelian Rahnerianism… Right? Let’s continue. ;-)
  • Infallibility only refers to Peter upon whose flesh and blood person the Church is founded by Christ Jesus.
  • When Jorge Bergoglio says that everybody is infallible in believing, and says this in Latin (infallibile in credendo) as if he’s citing a maxim of the ancient Fathers of the Church, that’s actually his own heretical statement that was never ever used in the history of the Church until it came out of his own heretical mouth. Again, no one is infallible except Peter and his successors, and only when he is specifically teaching as (1) bishop of Rome, successor of Peter, (2) to the universal Church, (3) on a matter of faith and morals (especially controverted in whatever historical circumstances), and (4) pronounces that what he is saying is already revealed in Sacred Revelation (Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition), which Sacred Revelation has not been somehow more fully provided by God since the death of the last Apostle. Extremely few Popes have made an infallible pronouncement. Jorge Bergoglio has never done this.
  • Popes can be personally heretical and even publicly manifest their personal heretical opinions. This is really bad and evil on their part, but it does not offend against infallibility. They are just being jerks. They cannot do this and fulfill all the conditions for an infallible pronouncement listed just above. Thus:
  • A Pope cannot make an incorrect infallible statement. Many even saintly people said/say that a Pope can infallibly fail. Um… any saint who has said such a thing was not canonized for saying such a thing, but rather for their personal holiness. Thank God that also people who just don’t get it on some things can still be great saints that we all respect.
  • People are simply too soft these days, and think Christ Jesus was a wimp, and couldn’t possibly have meant what He said, namely, in an actual translation of the inspired Greek which NO ONE wants to translate literally: Whatever you bind or loose on earth already perfectly continues to stand and will perfectly continue to stand that way for all eternity in heaven, since before the foundation of the world onward. In other words, mind you, the very person of Peter is expendable before the eternal unmanipulatable unchangeable Truth: before he can fail in an infallible pronouncement he will die, be incapacitated, be martyred, whatever. It simply will not come to pass, ever, that Peter or his successors will be able to fail in an infallible pronouncement.
  • Just because a Pope is personally, manifestly, a total heretic, day and day out, to the scandal of the entire Church and the world, does not mean that he is no longer Pope. It matters not that he does this as Successor of Peter, bishop of Rome, on a matter of faith and morals and to the universal Church. It would be guaranteed that he has not pronounced his heresy as being also already that which is manifest in Sacred Revelation itself. It just cannot happen.
  • It’s not a matter of “Oooh! The pope has failed in his infallibility and so ipso facto he is no longer Pope.” That is to say, by definition, that the pope is not infallible. That’s heresy. But so many hold that today, you know, just because of their unreasoned ♬ feelings ♬. I get that. Scandal makes us angry. Rightly so. But don’t let anger make you into a heretic. He just said something heretical, but not infallibly because he didn’t fulfill all the conditions for infallibility. Right? Yep. That’s exactly right. It’s really annoying, and scandalous, and odious to the salvation of souls, but non-infallible heretical opinions of whatever pope are not infallible. Get it?
  • Just because any pope is personally, manifestly a heretic doesn’t mean that there is any legitimate mechanism by which to remove him, not a bunch of good-guy cardinals holding a meeting, not a trial by all the bishops of the world. Nope. That would be to say that everybody is infallible when the Pope is not. And that’s the very heresy for which such as Jorge Bergoglio would be removed by such a fake mechanism. Right? Don’t be so upset that you become cynical and become a heretic, being condemned to hell for that which you condemn. Irony. More on that below. But it’s a fact: people easily fall into the very heresy that they are combatting. Be careful. A lot of people are not careful. They give into their entitlement to ♬ negative feelings ♬, not because they are right – and they are right – because merely because they are entitled wusses and they gotta throw hissy fits. Dang. Be right, but don’t become what you condemn. Just be crucified with our Lord Jesus by Peter who denies you to your face. As the Master so the disciple. And if Paul should reprimand Peter because Peter thinks he is infallible in his non-infallible opinions about the faith (Galatians 2:11), know that Peter, although having stood condemned, converted and because a saint. Desire the conversion of the apostate heretic.

So, any objection?

  • “But Father George! Father George! You give too much weight to Matthew 16! You should take a look at the verbatim passage in Matthew 18 which is like everyone is infallible! Pope Francis is right! And you’re a fraud, Father George!”

Calm down, calm down. Matthew 18 merely has it that everyone may know the faith as exactly as Peter may know the faith, or even better than Peter knows the faith. But it doesn’t say they are infallible or infallible in their believing. In fact, it speaks of their being fallible, fallen human beings that we are, so that when we’re wrong, we’re to bring that disagreement to Peter, who alone is infallible. Yep.

But what if:

  • But what if Jorge published some statement of what he himself calls a mere dialogue (Amoris laetitia), isn’t that infallible and can’t we throw an entitled tantrum and say he’s not the Pope anymore? Well, you can, and many have, and will continue to do so, wearing themselves out as they pound sand and kick rocks, but that’s just being butt-hurt. Nothing more. It’s just some stupid dialogue. It’s scandalous. It hurts souls. It’s really bad and evil. But that’s it. It hasn’t offended against infallibility.
  • Alright, alright, but what if Pope Francis actually makes an upcoming infallible statement with all the conditions above being met that the church is now different, a dialogue church, in which all truth and morality and liturgy are up for grabs according to historical circumstance where might makes right because everyone is infallible and it’s all about the tyranny of relativism by majority rule (or really the rule of the tyrannical dictator? So glad you asked: As said above, he will firstly die, or be incapacitated or martyred. Get it?

Here’s what I suggest to those who think any pope can change the truth: Get over yourselves with all your pope-worship or across-the-mountain-ism, however you want to define those terms, and just be Catholic? The Truth is not the mean between two poles. The Truth is living. God is Truth. Jesus said: “I am the Truth.” The Truth doesn’t have to dance around between two poles of right and left made up of out-of-control-gyroscopes so that the Truth has to move way to the left of what was the center or way to the right of what was center to keep – ooh! – exactly between those poles that are simply in reaction to one another in all historical vicissitudes. No. Instead:

  • Crux stat dum volvitur orbis. [The Truth of the] Cross remains steadfast while the world spins madly.

And you know I’m going to say this: the only way people are not going to be cynical is by also praying for the conversion of heretics, and that includes the Pope.

By the way. There are heaps of really excellent arguments on both sides that Jorge Bergoglio is the Pope or is not the Pope. I wasn’t there. I don’t know. The Lord knows how to handle our prayers.

I do have some intense experience with the Sankt Gallen mafia, both in Rome (being dragged to the actual politicking session at the Irish College), and almost right to the campus of Sankt Gallen with one of the engineers of same), and being praised and defended by the highest powers that be of…. cough cough… giving a retreat to… gag… gag… but ending the career of… cough cough… I had better stop. What I know is that “Francis”, a close friend of many close friends, might well not be Pope. I don’t know. I wasn’t at particular sessions, certainly I was not present in the conclaves… although… dang… I gotta stop. My point in this post is just to clear up some matters on infallibility.

  • “Dang it Father George! You can’t do that! What about if Jorge is not actually the Pope. That means in theory he could make a fallible infallible pronouncement, as it were, so to speak, right? He could check all the prerequisites you listed above and pronounce, say, on Easter Sunday, 2023, that we have an everyone-is-infallible different church, no longer founded on the person of Peter by the Son of the Living God, but on the notion that everyone is infallible, right, Father George, isn’t that right?!”

Yes, that’s true. But here’s my thought on that. Even though that wouldn’t offend against infallibility because, after all, he’s not actually the Pope in that scenario, I don’t think our Lord will block the angels from taking the imposter out on the spot, seconds before he does that. It’s just too scandalous, too confusing. Our Lord says the time will be shortened, otherwise not even one of the elect would be saved. Let that sink in for a moment. It would be just too much. The time will be shortened to the second before Jorge could do such a thing. I’m quite sure that will be dramatic, like another lightning bolt out of the heavens. :-) But we pray for conversion. Right? Come on… Hail Mary…

P.S. I was once told that I write this blog not to have more clarity in my own thinking (the primary reason of this blog), nor for any apostolate in helping others in the Church and in the world have greater clarity regarding the faith (though I attempt to take this as deadly seriously, however weakly, as Christ Jesus took us deadly seriously, laying down His life for us, Innocent for guilty, on the Cross)… No… I was told that I write this blog for the exclusive motivation of producing admiratio, the vice of drawing attention to oneself simply to draw attention to oneself, that my efforts have nothing to do with a priestly desire to brings souls to the Sacraments, to Jesus, with all the honesty and integrity that demands of all of us.

My answer to is to say that, of course, absolutely, I’m full of pride, and would go to hell for my pride, diabolical as my pride would be if not for the mercy and forgiveness of my dark and wretched soul by Mary Immaculate’s dear Divine Son, Jesus.

But, here’s the deal: I might stand out like a sore thumb because those who are supposed to teach the faith do not teach the faith, and they are terribly offended by my incredibly mediocre efforts. As inept as they are, my own little writings show them up, not because my writings are any good, but they don’t make any effort at all. It’s like on a scale of 1-100, I’ve gone from zero to one, but they’ve remained at zero. My tiny effort looks out of the ordinary because they make no effort at all. In any other time, everyone else would be high up the scale and I would terribly pitied for being so unlearned in the faith. But these are terribly dark times. Amazingly, my little candle flame seems to shine with the force of the sun. Those who should be doing more do not. And they are upset. They are stunned by the mere statement of truth.

Two literary bits to keep in mind:

hilaire belloc


“To the young, the pure, and the ingenuous, irony must always appear to have a quality of something evil, and so it has, for […] it is a sword to wound. It is so directly the product or reflex of evil that, though it can never be used – nay, can hardly exist – save in the chastisement of evil, yet irony always carries with it some reflections of the bad spirit against which it was directed. […] It suggests most powerfully the evil against which it is directed, and those innocent of evil shun so terrible an instrument. […] The mere truth is vivid with ironical power […] when the mere utterance of a plain truth labouriously concealed by hypocrisy, denied by contemporary falsehood, and forgotten in the moral lethargy of the populace, takes upon itself an ironical quality more powerful than any elaboration of special ironies could have taken in the past. […] No man possessed of irony and using it has lived happily; nor has any man possessing it and using it died without having done great good to his fellows and secured a singular advantage to his own soul.” [Hilaire Belloc, “On Irony” (pages 124-127; Penguin books 1325. Selected Essays (2/6), edited by J.B. Morton; Harmondsworth – Baltimore – Mitcham 1958).]

And “The Donkey” by Gilbert Keith Chesterton:

When fishes flew and forests walked
And figs grew upon thorn,
Some moment when the moon was blood
Then surely I was born.

With monstrous head and sickening cry
And ears like errant wings,
The devil’s walking parody
On all four-footed things.

The tattered outlaw of the earth,
Of ancient crooked will;
Starve, scourge, deride me: I am dumb,
I keep my secret still.

Fools! For I also had my hour;
One far fierce hour and sweet:
There was a shout about my ears,
And palms before my feet.

I don’t ♬ feel ♬ guilty in the least for putting up a post like this. It’s my obligation as a priest. I don’t bring on malicious division because of this. No, this is a sword of holy division – even divisiveness – however much I’ve made it dull, the sword which Christ Jesus came to bring. I’m happy to wield this sword, no matter how awkwardly, no matter how ineptly. Simply put: I’m happy to be a priest, even if there are those who think I’m a heretic for believing the faith with the kindness of Galatians 2:11.

Cardinal Parolin: “Kill ’em all! Babies murdered for vaccines donated themselves.”

torture chamber

If you know the Jack Bauer 24 Hours series, you will remember this scene when Jack rips out a “chip” from the stomach of an adversary while the guy is alive, without anesthesia, hastening that guy’s death.

The analogy, of course, is that big-Pharma gets a pregnant woman whose baby has been tested for maturity and perfect health into an ultra-sterile pharmaceutical laboratory to extract that baby and then, immediately, alive and now breathing, extracting organs from that healthy fully developed baby to use for research, testing, development of “vaccines.”

In the article below I make some objectively stated commentary on the words of Cardinal Pietro Parolin. I do not subjectively judge his soul. I know nothing about that. That’s for the Lord to judge, but if someone presents something, communicates something it can be objectively judged. When I call him a liar and murderer from the beginning I’m referring to his words. Just so we’re clear:

Murderer and Liar in Chief, the Cardinal Secretary of State, Archbishop Pietro Parolin, says that the purposed murder of these babies for our own selfish “benefit”, is, well, you know, if it’s just murder for testing instead of also for research and development, then that murder merely for testing is all good, even though testing is intrinsic to any research and development, is one and the same with research and development.

  • “But Father George! Father George! You have to be wrong! Pope Francis says it’s a moral obligation to get the murder-the-baby-jab, and he’s, like, the Pope and everything! So, like, there! Take that! Both the Pope and the Cardinal Secretary of State! Two against one. And they’re, like, big, and you’re, like, not! You’re in big trouble, Father George! Be afraid! Be very afraid!”

Pfft.

Here’s the great Edward Pentin getting written replies from Cardinal Parolin (January 11, 2022):

Cardinal Parolin Appears to Deny Conscience Right Exemption [= he totally rejects religious exemptions] from Vatican’s Pfizer Vaccine

Responding to a query about his Dec. 23 ruling mandating vaccination for all Vatican employees and visitors who haven’t recently recovered from COVID-19, the Vatican secretary of state indicated religious exemptions are not ‘justified’ with respect to mRNA vaccines. [Because, the commandment not to murder the innocent has no place in religion?! Cardinal Parolin is a liar and murderer from the beginning.]

VATICAN CITY — Cardinal Pietro Parolin has said Vatican employees seeking to be exempt from the Vatican’s new vaccine mandate because they oppose the vaccine’s link to abortion “seems not to be justified” as it was only tested rather than produced using the cell lines of aborted fetuses. [Testing requires the same murder, Cardinal Parolin, you liar and murderer from the beginning.]

On Dec. 23, Cardinal Parolin, who is the most senior Vatican official after Pope Francis, ruled that entry to the Vatican now was only to be permitted to those who were vaccinated [a demonic irony] or had recently recovered from COVID-19.

In Jan. 9 written comments to the Register [obviously a cynical political timing to influence SCOTUS], the Vatican Secretary of State said that the Pfizer-BioNTech vaccine administered at the Vatican [“at the Vatican” – All of Vatican City needs an exorcism.] does not use such “cell cultures” in its composition or production but “only in the preliminary stages of vaccine testing in the laboratory.” [As if murdering a baby for testing is any less a murder. What a liar and murderer from the beginning.]

“On the other hand, other vaccines (Astra Zeneca, Johnson & Johnson) are actually produced from cell cultures that were donated [=purpose-murdered] about 40 years ago [time is not morally relevant, otherwise original sin, Redemption, a murder of someone more than 40 years ago is not relevant in regard to judgment for heaven or hell] for scientific purposes” [as if “science” is a license to murder], he added. [This freak Cardinal Parolin says that the baby donates himself or herself to be murdered and therefore it’s all good. What a freak demon. There has been many evil things said by Pope Francis and others in recent years, but this cynical statement about “donation” has to go down as the most evil statement in the entire history of the world, truly. What a liar and murderer from the beginning.]

“Therefore, it seems that not wanting to undergo vaccination with this motivation [of objecting to the vaccine’s abortion link] cannot be justified, since the vaccine that is currently used is precisely the Pfizer one that uses the mRNA method,” he said. [What a liar and murderer from the beginning.]

The Dec. 23 decree mandated vaccines for most employees and visitors, stating that staff without a valid “Green Pass” attesting to vaccination or recovery from the virus would be unable to access the workplace. Those lacking this documentation would be “considered a case of unjustified absence” and effectively suspended without pay.

Cardinal Parolin also decreed that, from Jan. 31, all Vatican employees who serve in contact with the public would be obliged to provide official documentation proving they had received the full anti-COVID vaccine, including the third booster dose. [So, he’s aware it doesn’t work at all.]

Vatican City State was one of the first territories to offer the Pfizer vaccine to its employees, back in December 2020, and both Pope Francis and Benedict XVI reportedly received both shots and the booster jab. [That’s not morally relevant.]

The cardinal, who was relaying information to the Register from “competent persons in these matters” whom he had consulted for his response, also briefly explained the messenger RNA (mRNA) technology that teaches cells how to make a protein that will trigger an immune response inside the body.

Cardinal Parolin said these “mRNA vaccines (the best known of which is Pfizer, the one we use) are produced with a technique that does not involve the use of cell cultures but are synthesized through a method that involves the insertion of fragments of genetic information into the bacteria belonging to the type of Escherichia Coli [bacteria that normally live in the intestines of healthy people and animals, but some strains cause illness].”

“These are subsequently left to multiply for several days in crops which are rich in nutrients,” the cardinal added. “In this way it is possible to extract numerous copies of the DNA sequence from which then the mRNA sequences used for vaccination are produced.” [Meanwhile, there are murdered babies in abundance. These guys are liars and murderers from the beginning.]

Vatican Document References

To buttress his position, the cardinal also made reference to a note “on the morality of using some anti-COVID-19 vaccines” published by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith on Dec. 21, 2020. The note declared it was “morally acceptable to receive COVID-19 vaccines that have used cell lines from aborted fetuses in their research and production process. [I know the CDF well, so well, when I was in Rome, that I did my famous “Day Off” with them, once going to climb the Gran Sasso d’Italia with the whole crowd. None of these guys are infallible. None of them will speak for anyone at the judgement. They’re just weak human beings. Nothing more, nothing less. To cite them as an authority as if they were infallible is something that’s done by liars and murderers from the beginning.]

“The fundamental reason for considering the use of these vaccines morally licit is that the kind of cooperation in evil (passive material cooperation) in the procured abortion from which these cell lines originate is, on the part of those making use of the resulting vaccines, remote,” it added. [Oh, really? Remote by way of time? Time is irrelevant. By way of place? Place is irrelevant. By way of number of people involved? That’s also irrelevant. It’s purposed-murder by big-pharma precisely for research, development and testing of vaccines. It’s all in one direct continuous line of complicit behavior, from the guy with the scalpel to the guy who receives the product of the purposed murder for his own selfish benefit. One Knight of Columbus told me that he was happy to have a baby be murdered for himself.]

The CDF note stated that using such vaccines does not in itself legitimize, even indirectly, the practice of abortion [Of course it does. This is the biggest promotion of abortion since Roe v Wade.], nor does it amount to a moral endorsement of the use of cell lines proceeding from aborted fetuses. [But that’s exactly, precisely and in great particularity what it does.] It also added that pharmaceutical companies and state health agencies are encouraged to produce alternatives “that do not create problems of conscience for either health care providers or the people to be vaccinated.” [So they admit there is a problem of conscience. So they just “encourage” alternatives as big pharma rakes in trillions of dollars.]

Furthermore, it stated that “vaccination is not, as a rule, a moral obligation and that, therefore, it must be voluntary.” [So how is it that these liars and murderers from the beginning are forcing “vaccines”?]

Cardinal Parolin also referred to a 2017 document from the Pontifical Academy for Life that used similar arguments to the CDF note, namely that the cell lines used are “very distant from the original abortions and no longer imply that bond of moral cooperation indispensable for an ethically negative evaluation of their use.” [“Distant”… in what? Perception? You freakoid liars and murderers from the beginning. Again, time and place and numbers of people make no difference in a directly committed murder with which one is complicit, from which one benefits in a direct continuum from the guy with the scalpel to the guy or gal receiving a jab. The moral cooperation is as formal and proximate as that murdered individual glaring at you with Jesus, asking Jesus how long it will be before He takes vengeance on their murderers. Jesus doesn’t scold them; He just instructs them to wait a bit longer. And then He will take vengeance, even against those who protest with their misused words.]

Catholic leaders have taken varying positions on receiving the vaccine, with some such as Bishop Athanasius Schneider and other pro-life Catholics rejecting the use of a vaccine with any link to abortion, and other pro-life faithful, including Princeton Professor Robert George, asserting it is morally acceptable to receive any of the COVID-19 vaccines currently available [which means he’s not pro-life at all].

Cardinal Parolin’s differentiation between what he attests is the moral acceptability of using the Pfizer vaccine as opposed to the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and the Astra Zeneca vaccine, is somewhat similar to guidance issued by the USCCB last March, which stated that the Johnson & Johnson vaccine raised “additional moral concerns” and that the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines consequently should be preferred. However, the USCCB guidance did not indicate there were no moral problems at all associated with the mRNA vaccines, and it also stressed the importance of continuing to “insist that pharmaceutical companies stop using abortion-derived cell lines.” [There are problems, but – ah, the hell with it – go ahead and use them but just say you object. All liars, all murderers from the beginning.]

The Register asked Cardinal Parolin about his new decree regarding anti-COVID restrictions: “Until now, personnel could self-exempt themselves from taking the vaccines against COVID by obtaining a negative test. Now those tests are no longer accepted, will exemptions be made for those personnel who cannot, in good conscience, take the vaccine on grounds of the vaccine having been derived (tested or produced) from aborted foetal stem cells?” [Great question, Edward.]

The full text of Cardinal Parolin’s Jan. 9 response to the Register follows:

mRNA vaccines (the best known of which is Pfizer, the one we use) are produced with a technique that does not involve the use of cell cultures but are synthesized through a method that involves the insertion of fragments of genetic information into the bacteria belonging to the type of Escherichia Coli. These are subsequently left to multiply for several days in crops which are rich in nutrients. In this way it is possible to extract numerous copies of the DNA sequence from which then the mRNA sequences used for vaccination are produced. In the case of mRNA vaccines, cell lines from aborted fetuses were used only in the preliminary stages of vaccine testing in the laboratory, but no cell lines from aborted fetuses are included in either the composition or production. On the other hand, other vaccines (Astra Zeneca, Johnson & Johnson) are actually produced from cell cultures that were donated about forty years ago for scientific purposes. Therefore, it seems that not wanting to undergo vaccination with this motivation cannot be justified, since the vaccine that is currently used is precisely the Pfizer that uses the mRNA method. Concluding, I would refer you to the Note on the morality of using some anti-Covid-19 vaccines issued by the Congregation for the Doctrine of Faith on 20 December 2020, as well as the document of the Pontifical Academy for Life issued on 31 July 2017. [In other words, a non-answer by which you know you’ve already been axed from your job. Such a liar and murderer from the beginning.]


  • “But Father George! Father George! You can’t say things like that! They won’t like you!”

My answer to that? Sigh. There’s no escape. These guys are not only unbelievers, they want to crush believers. What am I going to do? Be silent? They would still know that I’m a believer. I’m already dead. Thanks be to God and Immaculate Mary and my guardian angel. I’m already dead.

CDF Rumors on blessing same-sex couples: solicitation and excommunication

So, rumors have it that the guy in the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith at the Vatican who said that the Church can’t bless same-sex couples is being moved out of the CDF and is being demoted against his hierarchical rank.

And then it’s said that a certain militantly homosexualist ecclesiastic who has been promoting same-sex couples as being blessed by God, created by God, is taking his place and is on the fast track to becoming the prefect of the CDF.

If that’s true, I’m dead. I’ve spoken against that guy very strongly for years and years. I don’t take back anything I said. Is he thick as thieves with another guy who almost single-handedly created the abuse crisis the way it played out first in America and then around the world? Just a question.

That other guy personally told me that he has the goods on pretty much everyone in America, across the pond, and over in the Vatican. I wish he would come forward with what he’s got. Not that that would make any difference. It seems that right now the worst rot out of hell is a virtue. We live in dark times.

Pope Francis says that we’re not supposed to pay attention to rumors. But when things actually happen and Pope Francis himself defends same-sex civil unions, what is one to think? Just a question.

And, by the way, there is no such thing as a chaste same-sex civil union. The only reason the logistics are what they are is because of a disorder. To pander to that disorder is a sin against the virtue of chastity. For an ecclesiastic to promote sin (such as not calling it a sin) is called solicitation, at least when this is done in the Confessional: “Oh! Tsk! Tsk! That’s not a sin anymore!” That brings on an automatic excommunication.

1 October 2021. Vatican Bank steals % of my account with IOR. Reminds me of the Mafia.

Yours truly can’t go to complain about it because no one but no one gets in Vatican City without being vaxed. My, my, that’s quite cynical of them, isn’t it? I can’t email them because they’ve blocked any communication from my IP address when I tried to use electronic communication. My, my, that’s quite cynical of them, isn’t it?

“The Mafia doesn’t exist.” — “The Mafia, there is, but it doesn’t exist.”

Oh, I forgot… those investigations… those court proceedings… anyone in jail yet? No? Why’s that?

The last anyone wrote about any of this was July 2021. It’s now October 2021. So, like…

You offer the TLM but do you accept Vatican II? My clever answer…

We’re quite rambunctious in the parish here, offering the TLM at the main parish Mass every Sunday at 11:00 AM. We thought we might advertise a bit, you know, for the sake of evangelization. Many have waited for decades for the return. So, one of the distinguished members of the parish who is a good friend with the local radio station asked if this bit of religious news be broadcast:

That will be run many times a day for the entire week, for free, as it’s for religious purposes. Great!

But that, of course, will set some ecclesiastics to wondering as to whether I accept the Second Vatican Council.

Submitting to 100% of every Constitution, Decree and Declaration, every word, every syllable, every letter, has been tied in these recent tumultuous decades to the litmus test as to whether one is Catholic, you know, should one dare to appreciate the glories of the Most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass of the Ages, the Traditional Latin Mass, as if assisting at Holy Mass as the Lord’s Little Flock has done throughout the centuries and millennia is somehow bad and evil and automatically calls into question one’s very membership in the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church.

Such brow-beating got me to thinking. What was the situation of the “Fathers” of the Vatican Council II? Did they each have to take an oath to God that they accept everything in each document lest they burned alive at the stake? No, no they didn’t. That’s not how it works. They were free to vote for against the schema. Fully 60% rejected the schemata before even starting, not the 2/3 needed, but they were discarded anyway. Later, they could disagree on points of drafts as they would be presented for review again and again and again, sometimes yes for a paragraph, sometimes no for a paragraph, being invited also to make spoken interventions. Let’s review those documents:

Constitutions

  • Dei Verbum
  • Lumen Gentium
  • Sacrosanctum Concilium
  • Gaudium et Spes

Declarations

  • Gravissimum Educationis
  • Nostra Aetate
  • Dignitatis Humanae

Decrees

  • Ad Gentes
  • Presbyterorum Ordinis
  • Apostolicam Actuositatem
  • Optatam Totius
  • Perfectae Caritatis
  • Christus Dominus
  • Unitatis Redintegratio
  • Orientalium Ecclesiarum
  • Inter Mirifica

To the point: not every one of the Council “Fathers” signed every one of those documents. They didn’t have to. They were free to have their opinions and disagreements for whatever cause. That’s the reason for a Council. + Marcel Lefebvre voted against, say, Dignitatis humanae, but then signed it. See the last entry on the bottom right, and then the continuation on the top left of the next page:

Yes, his full name is + Marcel François Marie Joseph Lefebvre.

This freedom to speak even with parrhesia, as it is said, is rather more human than what is happening today. Now, those pious souls who love assisting at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass offered as it traditionally has been offered throughout the ages must assent to every syllable of every word of every sentence of every paragraph of every article of every document, you know, while gasoline is being poured over them and a lit match is held toward them. “Accept everything all at once, or else!”

Should someone ask me as to whether I accept all the documents with all of their content in such an impolite and discourteous manner, I would answer that we would have to sit down for a few centuries and dialogue about every sentence and part of sentences and groups of sentences, etc. Each word would need Lewis and Short. Each literary context would have to be drawn out. Historical philology would begin to be taught everywhere. This is not being difficult. It is simply that I have no idea what much of what is contained in the documents could possibly mean. There are some statements that are simple, true, pious. There are many scattered throughout that are clearly purposely ambiguous in such manner as to mislead Christ’s faithful.

Since I cannot decipher what those purposely ambiguous statements could possibly mean, and since no one has any authority to say what all those passages mean, in their dozens, hundreds, thousands, tens of thousands, as if speaking infallibly for each of the “Fathers” (all of whom disagreed with each other) and for Pope Paul VI who himself had to intervene in ferocious disputes, and then proclaim somehow that all the Council “Fathers” were always and in all things of one mind and one judgement about all of these things or any of them at all, they having voted wildly differently on all these things, well then, we’re at a stalemate. I just don’t get it.

So, what is this whereby the faithful are smashed down and kicked in the face and told to accept that which no one can say what it means? This is all entirely absurd and an insult to Christ Jesus and to each member of His Little Flock.

Method is also doctrinal. And this method of kicking people in the face and spitting in the face of Jesus is not reasonable, not Catholic. It is anti-Catholic, anti-Christ. And it’s not in the “spirit” of Vatican II voting of the “Fathers”!

Diversely, put the dogmatic canons of Trent in front of me and I will instantly assent to all of them, no problem.

I mean, I can give examples of studied ambiguity in either the documents or the “spirit” of the Council, but – Hey! – I have to same something for the surely to be entertaining “dialogue” that would take place (though a waste of time).

I’ve been doing the analysis of texts for a long time at the highest levels of academia this world and this Church have to offer. It is to laugh. Of course, some of those ecclesiastics will not appreciate being presented with the truth. That’s not the point for them. It’s all about power cut off from truth, cut off from love, cut off from Christ Jesus, who, it should be said, will come to judge the living and the dead and the world by fire. Amen.

Synod on Synods: Fr George is infallible! With humor Fr George says: No I’m not!

This post confirms my analysis of article 1 of Traditionis custodes, which has it that Pope Francis not only rejected the lex orandi, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the Last Supper and Calvary, in all rites of Mass (including the Novus Order, the New Order of Mass), but also, in rejecting the true lex orandi (coopting external rites for that), he also rejected the lex credendi, the law of believing, which is sourced in the true lex orandi, specifically, the actual Sacrifice of Jesus, not just the external rites. See:

ANALYSIS: Traditionis custodes Art. 1 – Table of Distinctions. How Pope Francis rejects the Sacrifice of Jesus & Faith

Just to say, the reason why he doesn’t mind at all that the Most Holy Sacrifice in the rite of the TLM be celebrated in any sewer, commanding that the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass (TLM) must be offered outside of any parish church, is that, for Francis, the actual Sacrifice of Jesus is nothing but a symbol, just like Pachamama is a symbol. The demon idol was thrown in the river and so Francis has no problem in reciprocating, throwing Jesus out of church into another venue.

Here’s the deal: If there is no lex credendi because the lex orandi has been rejected, then it’s the end of the Church as we knew it (it will seem as if the visible Church has disappeared from the face of the earth) and the end of the Church entirely in the eyes of Francis. It’s all tabula rasa, a blank slate, a creative field upon which Francis can project himself. He calls this new church catholic, but he alone is the new law of believing, the new Lex credendi. He wants to redefine the very constitution of the church as dialogue, but that dialogue is directed on high by him (so it’s not dialogue, just condescending bullying).

Let’s confirm all this with what is said in the opening volley for the Synod on Synodality, where we see that the faith is to be entirely made up from scratch according to consultation not only of the sense of the faith of everyone in their believing, but the “infallible” sense of the faith of everyone in their believing. This is the most far reaching heresy of Pope Francis to date.

The key paragraph of that “Note of the Synod of Bishops, 21.05.2021: XVI Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops: “For a synodal Church: communion, participation and mission” is the following:

  • The objective of this phase is to consult the People of God (cf. Episcopalis Communio, 5,2) so that the synodal process is carried out through listening to all of the baptised, who are the subject of the sensus fidei – infallible –in credendo.” — [[Episcopalis communio Art. 5: Start and Purpose of the Preparatory Phase – §1. The preparatory phase begins when the Roman Pontiff officially opens the Synod Assembly, assigning one or more themes to it. §2. Coordinated by the General Secretariat of the Synod, the preparatory phase has at its purpose the consultation of the People of God on the theme of the Synod Assembly.]]
  • What is a “sense” of the faith? The faith is univocally provided supernaturally by the Holy Spirit, the same for all, for pope and priest and parishioner. When by a process of conscience, something is presented for the judgment of conscience (such as whether we are to repent for our sins), this decision is pushed, if you will, by the grace of faith supernaturally provided. But that “sense” of the faith on our part is fallible inasmuch as we are fallen, having all the weaknesses and fears of original sin and our own sin. We rush to suppress the faith unless, taking on this cross of weakness and fear, by grace we assent to all that which is good and holy. This is all true for parishioner and priest and pope alike.
  • What does it mean to be infallible? The only difference for the Successor of Peter is that he is utterly expendable before the eternal truth of God who is not at all expendable. That Successor of Peter is the only one tasked among all the baptized to be in that position as the father of the family of faith on earth, not the other bishops, not the priests, not the sheep of the Lord’s Little Flock, just the Successor of Peter. It is not something that can be called a revelation or a charism or a special inspiration. No, nothing positive like that. It is a negative provision. That’s it. Everyone, including the pope, has the same “sense of the faith” and we can be wrong about the faith, including the pope, because of our weakness and fear consequent to original sin and our own sin. It’s just that the pope is in a unique teaching position established by the Lord. The pope cannot be wrong about faith and morals when he pronounces some teaching as already being revealed in the two-fold source of revelation, Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition, and does this as the Successor of Peter for the entire Church. If he were to make such an infallible ex-cathedra pronouncement and be incorrect, heretical, well, actually, it is not the truth that is expendable, but rather the pope, in such manner that he will not be able to pronounce such heresy. He will either drop dead before it can happen (Pope Sixtus V) or be incapacitated or stopped in some providential manner. The pope is expendable, not the Truth of the Living God.
  • What does it mean to be infallible in believing: “infallibile in credendo“? One can be entirely correct in believing. The Blessed Virgin Mary, because of her Immaculate Conception, had such purity of heart and agility of soul, clarity of spiritual vision, such profundity of understanding, and was so entirely lacking in unhealthy fear that she was correct in her believing. But that’s not to say she was infallible. She wasn’t ever meant to be a subject of infallibility, which is a kind of divine gag-order on the stupidity and imprudence of whatever pope might want to go against the faith. The phrase “infallible in believing” is non-sensical in that not even a pope correctly pronouncing a dogma of the faith as already present in Sacred Revelation is necessarily infallible in believing. That’s WHY there is such a protection of the church over against any pope who may well not be a believer at all, but who may try to say something against the faith. That a pope is infallible is a protection for the church that will be effected regardless of whether or not that particular pope is a believer.

But – Hey! – don’t believe me! Regardless of what is said for the Synod on Synodality, I, Father George, am not infallible!

Instead – Hey! – why not let’s look at Sacred Scripture and see the treasures that are there? Yes, let’s do that.

Warning: this analysis is not something you will find amongst the Orthodox, nor among “ecumenists” who want to pander to the Orthodox. This analysis is not something you will find among any commentary on the Scriptures that I have ever seen. No one wants to see infallibility for what it is. We are all that fearful, and therefore stupid. So – Hey! – let’s just look at what the actual words are, getting the finest nuance provided under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit to the Evangelist Saint Matthew. Let’s look at the dreaded Matthew 16:19 and Matthew 18:18. Let’s be usefully pedantic.

  • Matthew 16:19a — “Whatever you may bind at any given time (second person singular [Peter alone] subjunctive aorist active) upon the earth will (third person singular [Peter alone] indicative future middle) already have been made to be perfectly standing in that way (nominative neuter singular participle perfect passive) in the heavens.”

What do the verbs mean in this context?

Second person singular subjunctive aorist active –

  • The second person singular refers to Peter alone, not to all, not even the other Apostles: Peter alone.
  • The subjunctive here is not so much a kind of conditional or wishfulness, but rather depicts the state of actually choosing an option; from the perspective of the actor, there is freedom to the choice: “Whatever you may bind at any given time.”
  • The aorist time frame, whatever delusion your introductory Greek grammars insist on providing to you, is literally “without borders”, that which can happen in the past, present or even future (as is the case here: see below), though usually something which itself happens in a defined time frame, such as the choice to bind something.
  • Active simply refers to something simply being accomplished.

Third person singular indicative future middle –

  • The third person singular refers to any given object of the action, its state of being.
  • It will simply be what it is (indicative)
  • at that time (future).
  • The middle voice is here used to indicate the status quo to which the actor is also subject, that is, retroactively to his decision to bind something, the truth of that which is described by the following verb, which this singular indicative future middle (“will”) helps to describe.

Nominative neuter singular participle perfect passive —

  • The nominative neuter singular refers to the object which is being bound (passive)
  • that is, in an ongoing fashion (participle)
  • in a perfect manner (perfect); mind you, in Greek, “perfect” never refers to a perfectly accomplished action at one point in time and that’s the end of it, but rather to an action which starts in a perfect manner and perfectly continues in this perfection since its inception: it always was and will be this way, perfectly, with no change: “already have been made to be perfectly standing in that way.” This “perfect” action structures the capacity of the actor, Peter, to act subjunctively, preempting all choices of Peter except for the one which is consonant which the truth which has always been this way in the heavens. Whatever he may choose to bind at any given time will already have been the case, is the case, and will always continue to be the case in the heavens. Peter cannot choose anything which is not already perfectly established in the heavens. What is in heaven is not an affirmation of what Peter might pronounce; what is in heaven simply is what it is, absolute truth. If Peter is wrong about what he intends to pronounce upon, he simply will not be able to pronounce upon it. He is utterly expendable for the sake of the Lord’s Little Flock.

And this is why there is misinterpretation of this passage is that people are afraid of Peter being expendable. That would mean this is all very serious, and that they themselves have to pay attention to doctrine and morality themselves. That’s what people don’t want to see. They run away by saying it means that Peter can say whatever the hell he wants and heaven will have to kowtow to him. Instead, Peter risks life and limb pronouncing infallibly. Almost no popes have done this. The Orthodox and others shouldn’t be envious of infallibility. Not at all.

The bit about loosing is exactly the same, verbatim:

  • Matthew 16:19b — “Whatever you may loose at any given time (second person singular subjunctive aorist active) upon the earth will (third person singular indicative future middle) already have been made to be perfectly standing in that way (nominative neuter singular participle perfect passive) in the heavens.”

Let’s review Matthew 18:18 in utterly pedantic translation, as this is where it gets really interesting as to whether all the baptized are infallible or not:

  • Matthew 18:18a — “Whatever ye may bind at any given time (second person plural subjunctive aorist active) upon the earth will (third person singular indicative future middle) already have been made to be things perfectly standing in that way (nominative neuter singular participle perfect passive) in heaven.”

And then:

  • Matthew 18:18b — “Whatever ye may loose at any given time (second person plural subjunctive aorist active) upon the earth will (third person singular indicative future middle) already have been made to be things perfectly standing in that way (nominative neuter singular participle perfect passive) in heaven.”

There are some differences besides the plural heavens and singular heaven. Matthew 18:18 is addressed also to the laity about any number of things that may be under dispute. But the verbs and their meanings are exactly the same. The important thing to notice is that the context does not grant any infallibility for this other crowd, that is, for anyone except Peter (and his successors). Let’s see how:

Firstly, in Matthew 16:19, where Peter alone among the Apostles is addressed, only Peter is given the keys of the Kingdom of the Heavens. There is no reference at all to such keys for anyone else in Matthew 18:18. That they have the same access to the understanding of the faith as does Peter is contingent for them in agreeing with Peter, for, as we see in context, the process of a dispute will bring them right back to the Church for a decision of Peter. They are not infallible, he is. If they rebel they are ipso facto no longer Catholic. This is what people also forget in this equation, that we are all of us also expendable if we so choose. Peter was certainly judged by the Lord right quick:

  • Peter to Jesus: God forbid! The cross is not for you!
  • Jesus to Peter: Get behind me, Satan!

In the end, Peter also manifested in his own life, being crucified, that love and truth is stronger than our weakness, stronger than our darkness, stronger than death. Love and truth live! And Jesus, Divine Son of the Immaculate Conception, will come to judge the living and the dead and the world by fire. Amen.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is jesus-peter-keys-kingdom-founding-catholic-church.png
  • “Father George! Father George! Why are you so disrespectful to Pope Francis in your pedantic clarity! You certainly ARE infallible Father George! Just like all of us! Pope Francis said so! Stop being such an old meanie! Pope Francis should excommunicate you for, like, saying stuff, contradicting him!”

But – wait… what? – I thought he thought I was infallible, so I can’t be wrong, right?

Bwahahahahaha!

Sigh…

Weep…

Now, if all that seems very dark, let me leave you with a wonderful note on all of this:

Remember the guy at the end of Matthew 18:15-17, the rebel, who didn’t listen to any correction from a friend, nor from multiple witnesses, nor from the church, but just kept rebelling, how Jesus said to treat that rebel like a tax collector? Yes, well, the one writing that account was Matthew himself, he being that rebel, a one-time tax collector, and Jesus says to treat that rebel guy like a tax collector, that is, how Jesus treated such rebels, that is, by making him, now repentant into an apostle and evangelist. I love that. Jesus is the best.

And if that is not sufficient to speak to my own attitude toward Pope Francis, I challenge any priest or bishop in the world to offer more publicly announced Mass intentions – the whole Mass, not just a mention in the Canon or in the prayers of the faithful – than I do. I do that, a lot. I pray for the very person of Pope Francis. I want to see him in heaven. I want to go to heaven. If I didn’t want to see him in heaven I wouldn’t go to heaven. I pray for the grace to be close to Jesus myself. I pray for him, that he has the grace to be close to Jesus.

I extend this challenge also to laity, to have more Masses caused to be offered for the person of Pope Francis than I myself have been doing.

I’m not gonna say that I’m infallible on this[!], but I think that this is the right attitude to have in regard to Pope Francis.

Meanwhile, IOR, Vatican Bank…

I’ve yet to continue with my series on Vatican Bank. I’ve yet to publicly “confess” any “money laundering” and any “financing of international terrorism.”

Meanwhile, I got a letter from the IOR (Vatican Bank). I thought it might a hard-copy of what they had sent out multiple time previously by email concerning the above possible crimes with threats of freezing any accounts for non-compliance. As expected, there’s something else going on. The letter includes graphs and shovel loads of attorney speak to hint that they are going into the red, which is not good for a bank. For instance:

  • “Proposta di variazione unilaterale delle Condizioni di Contratto con decorrenza 1 ottobre 2021.” (Proposal [=imposition] of unilaterally effected changes to the Conditions of Contract beginning 1 October 2021).
  • “In questo periodo storico, la gestione della liquidità e diventata strutturalmente negativa.” (In this period of time, the management of liquidities has become structurally negative.”)

So, what do you do? Put the Vatican up for sale? No, no. What they’re going to do is to reduce any “interest” paid into accounts, even to the point of removing funds from accounts. They take money from you for taking money from you.

This is getting tiring. I think I’ll just have them do a transfer of funds into my bank account here in North Carolina, you know, before 1 October 2021.

Meanwhile, there’s an interesting date on that letter considering the trial at exactly this time of someone indicted for multiple crimes, including fraud for – what was it? – something like 412 million dollars. To be continued.

2nd preliminary response to Vatican Bank investigating me for money laundering & financing international terrorism

/// This is the text of what was blocked by Vatican servers when attempting to send this as an email txt and then as a pdf file. Blocked two days in a row. That’s not mere server housekeeping. So, I publish it here. Too creepy for me. I take out the two names to whom this is addressed in the IOR, Vatican Bank. ///

Dear Mr XXXX XXXXXXX and Mr XXXXXXXX XXXXXXX,

Thank you for your continued service at IOR in such difficult times. The pressure you are all under is witnessed by the anomalous manner with which the request for the updating of personal details of (some) account holders has been proffered. Except for the fact that you work for the Holy See (Vatican City State), I would, in any other circumstances, assume such a request to be an inferior intelligence product devoid of the least effort to provide passable optics of professionalism. While I write this in a lighthearted manner for your entertainment, I find myself insufficient to the task of conveying to you the depth of the gravity of my concern regarding the matters at hand.

As we proceed in future communications to my own confessions of any “money laundering” and any “financing of international terrorism”, please accept these preliminary observations as a professional courtesy in view of the possibility that you are acting in good faith and not with the prestidigitations of those who are merely as clever as serpents. In this communication some requests are also made with the hope that you are trying to be helpful, respecting justice, which is never biased on behalf of one person over against another, never taking advantage of the circumstances of one person and using those unjustly over against another.

The IOR request for the updating of personal details of the (representatives of) clients of the IOR has the inescapably implied motivation of virtue-signaling, with the Holy See (Vatican City State) making the claim in this manner that it has the moral high ground in implementing policies regarding any money laundering and any financing of international terrorism. Perhaps this is an attempt to incite laughter among clients, to be in solidarity with the IOR amidst exasperation with the failures of the Holy See (Vatican City State), failures to which we are all subject in our fallen human nature. And one would laugh, except that it is all so sad.

All are aware that the Holy See (Vatican City State) has been under scrutiny for many decades regarding what is sometimes perceived as malfeasance specifically by way of alleged purposed incompetence resulting in the alleged but equally purposed non-implementation of best-practices. Alleged incompetents and/or malefactors, with the finesse of stilted Romanità, thus proffer an invitation to, or give into logistical demands of criminals leveraging the vice of greed, the fear of extortion, or willing fealty to that which falls under rubrical omertà.

To be detailed below are just a few unavoidable, immediate and irreversible consequences of your sending out an electronic communication (two, within hours, in my case) inescapably implying the possibility that those in reception of that missive may be guilty of money laundering and the financing of international terrorism.

Laudable, predictable interception of such an electronic communication by intelligence services who work for our common security are algorithm-flagged to the end of provoking human intervention. International money laundering and the financing of international terrorism are taken rather seriously in the midst of the always perverted machinations of geopolitical maneuvering and the unfathomable greed and lust for power also of specific individuals. At any rate, it is the discourteous and unprovoked first-instance threat of the freezing of accounts which requires an agent to take certain actions. If you’re willing to provoke a court case with all the discovery that such entails, it must all be quite serious.

While I am very happy that you are applying what might be seen to be merely regularly scheduled due-diligence-policies concerning money laundering and the financing of international terrorism (more on that in a future communication), I’m guessing that you could have refrained from any immediate unprovoked threats of the freezing of any account with IOR, just as you could have refrained from mentioning that investigations into money laundering and the financing of international terrorism is the purpose of these requests for clients to update their individual and unrepeatable details. Surely it would be normal best-practices to request clients to update their details, but without any mention of possible crimes and without any threats, with that simple updating being enough to accomplish your felicitous motivations as good members of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, sending along all updated information and activities of all clients, institutional or otherwise, for the verification and review of the OSCE in all of its 57 member countries. The intelligence services of the USA, also a member of the OSCE, are extraordinarily good at what they do, and will immediately notice any anomalies. Apriori purposed alerting of any malefactors seems counterproductive, allowing criminals to use much more care in their answers, allowing them to move funds before the freezing of any accounts. Bad as that is, that’s only the best-case scenario. There are others.

For the intelligence services of the USA, activities wrought by a foreign country on a citizen of the USA that touch on the mere possibility of such crimes related to priority security issues will immediately trigger a surveillance warrant from the United States Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Court in Washington, D.C., every time, no exceptions. I’m good with that. My life has always been an open book, particularly with our intelligence services. I’m sure you are aware that any FISA warrant also covers anyone related in any manner to the subject of the warrant, including, in this case, individuals who work at the IOR, along with the IOR institutionally, and anyone who may have ordered such an investigation. But you already know that. This must be a rather grave matter.

Despite my status as a citizen of the USA in good standing, such motivation for an inquiry into priority security issues is enough to have me abruptly detained by our Department of Justice for a more thorough inquisition, effectively having me placed in custody for an indeterminate period, even years. But you knew that before you sent your first communication, didn’t you? I’m happy to cooperate in any such investigation, but I would be dismayed on behalf of Christ’s faithful, who may be bereft of a priest to care for their sacramental needs in my remote parish. Should there be any unfortunate misunderstandings it would be convenient for me to have a contact in the Nunciature in Washington, D.C. who would be able to liaise with our Department of State and our Department of Justice. Might you send me the full contact information of that person?

Despite my status as a Catholic priest in good standing, a pastor of a parish, and a Missionary of Mercy of Pope Francis, any bishop would be understandably hesitant to tolerate that such a priest under investigation for money laundering and the financing of international terrorism by the Holy See be allowed to continue in active ministry, at least until such investigations are resolved, which could take years or, much more likely, never come to a conclusion. The most likely resulting scenario of your preliminary communication would, in most every (arch)diocese in the world, be that I am removed from public ministry, probably for life. Many in the Church, perhaps hiding ulterior motivations, congratulate themselves by citing the deadly verbiage of the expedience of Caiaphas: “pro bono eccelesiae,” “for the good of the Church.” But you already knew that before you sent your first communication, didn’t you? Again, should there be any unfortunate misunderstandings it would be convenient for me to have a contact in the Nunciature in Washington, D.C. that would be able to liaise with the Holy See with the end of having me placed back in active ministry should I indeed be temporarily removed. Might you send me the full contact information of that person?

However felicitously these circumstances may be resolved, these communications will remain registered as an “incident” in my life history on both ecclesiastical and governmental levels. This may involve harassment getting an ecclesiastical assignment as mentioned above, or even harassment in travel. For instance, is it not likely, even probable, that all fifty seven member countries of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe will incorporate my name on a watch list, even a no-fly list? Will I be allowed to return to Italy, to the Vatican, for the upcoming encounter of the Missionaries of Mercy with Pope Francis? But you already knew all the possible repercussions before you sent your first communication, didn’t you?

In expectation of whatever name(s) you may be able to send me of those working in the Apostolic Nunciature in Washington D.C. (previous to my “confessing” any “money laundering” and any “financing of international terrorism”), I ask our Lord to shower His blessings upon you.

Father George David Byers, SSL, STD
Pastor of Holy Redeemer Catholic Church
Missionary of Mercy of Pope Francis


So, I’ll get into “confessing” “confessions” of any “money laundering” and any “financing of international terrorism” in another post. I have to write that yet. Stay tuned.

UPDATE: IOR (Eeyore: Vatican Bank) vs Father George, money launderer, financier of international terrorism. Humor.

[[ UPDATE: This post was published yesterday. I saw this post as published yesterday on my phone. But it has disappeared from what is visible on the desktop computer. Interesting. Let’s try to publish it again. Only something like one in five of my posts is sent out to subscribers. If you want to follow this blog you have to come to this URL directly, you know, by putting it in the top menu or whatever your system allows. Sorry for reposting this for those who saw it. Thanks. //// ]]

[[ UPDATE: Since it is Vatican Bank which is investigating me for money laundering and the financing of international terrorism, I wonder if I’m one of the ones for whom the three bullets sent to Pope Francis are intended. There seems to have been a complaint about how the finances are being handled. Plenty of fodder for that by the way. The French police who were alerted to this already in France where they intercepted that letter said that the person sending the bullets is clearly known the Gendarmerie. That’s really creepy. Especially because I’m well known to Vatican Intel, specifically to Giani, who was fired by Francis while he was getting close to discovering all the rubbish. Giani gave my case over to Gauzzi, who succeeded Giani. ]]

[[ UPDATE: I just tried to send another short email just saying that I can’t seem to get through, and that was rejected for now two days in a row. So this is not just the temporary housecleaning of servers. I’m blocked. After attempting to post this again, I’ll try to publish my fuller response. Then I’ll “confess” publicly my “crimes” of any “money laundering” and any “financing of international terrorism.” ;-) ]]


//// Original post from 9 August 2021: ////

So, IOR (pronounced Eeyore) (Istituto per le Opere di Religione: Vatican Bank) has been investigating yours truly for money laundering the financing of international terrorism, threatening to freeze my account. Bwaahahahahaha….

I asked for names in the IOR with whom I might correspond so as to “confess” my “crimes” of any “money laundering” and any “financing of international terrorism” even while they – in first instance communication – threatened to freeze my account.

And they did send me two names. Along with all the metadata, it’s a verified email account, and it’s in proper working order. Heheheh…

Great! So now I tried to send a more fulsome response, getting closer to my upcoming promised “confessions”:

  • I sent that response via simple email txt. It was rejected as an email by the Holy See and sent back. ;-)
  • I then created a pdf of 28 kbs. Tiny. Just txt. I know they have that capability as it’s they also sent me a pdf attachment. That was also rejected as an email by the Holy See and sent back. ;-)
  • Then I sent just a few words in a txt email to the general IOR address, asking for an email capable of receiving more than just two or three words. That was it. That was also rejected by the Holy See and sent back. ;-)

Probably the email system of Vatican City State is down, except that they received it and automatically rejected my email, you know, by way of email. Perhaps it’s just some servers that are down, you know, of the IOR, you know, while they are in the midst of being watched while Cardinal What’s His Face is indicted on many criminal charges including fraud to the tune of 400-500 million dollars (or is it euros?). Quite a bit whatever the case.

Or, maybe they are running scared, realizing the implications of what they’ve done. Too late!

I’ll wait a week or so, and see if they come back on-line (or they unblock me?). But I am tempted to publish my response to them on this blog with some adjunct remarks. We’ll see.

Francis’ Covid-passports: throwing baby parts at Jesus’ face at the Judgment is a passport to hell

This story was on Church Militant. LifeSite carried the story with heaps of details, with reference to the massive protests in twelve European cities. While idiot priests here and there banned people from the Sacraments, Francis has not yet had “Green Pass” check points at the doors of Saint Peter’s Basilica. Don’t think it’s not coming. He’s started with the Vatican Museums and Gardens and such. But Francis has banned reception of the Sacraments on his travels elsewhere and smashed down Vatican workers (just under 5,000 people).

Considering what Mt St Mary’s Seminary did in throwing out all seminarians who do not have vaccines, and considering that some bishops have “restricted” the ministry of un-vaxed priests (effectively suspending them a divinis, from providing sacraments, etc.), and considering that the vast, vast majority of otherwise even seemingly good bishops support and promote the baby-murder-sourced vaccines like any high priests of Satan, I’m guessing that it will be soon that we have a general smackdown in the entire church by both ecclesiastical and secular authorities.

And then we will see a persecution such as has never been seen since the foundation of the world, nor will be seen until the end of the world. Murdering babies for your own benefit is stepping WAY over the line.

No matter how you look at it, Francis is heading toward dismissing from the clerical state (laicizing) all priests throughout the world who do not get vaxed. Francis has already compared unvaxed people to murderers. He’s said that they are wanting suicide because they don’t get vaxed. How could you keep a priest in active ministry that is both murderous and wanting to commit suicide?

With this murder-the-children-for-self-referential-benefit attitude, Pope Francis is the most monstrous child-abuser (because of his influence) in the history of the world.

All vaccines that we have are researched and/or developed and/or tested on babies murdered for the purpose. I’m not going to be participating in the murder of the most vulnerable of the least of the brethren. Ain’t gonna happen. I can’t see myself going before the judgement and throwing baby parts in Jesus face, and in the face of dearest Mary. No.

ALSO: Now that the U.S. Department of Defense is mandating vaccines for the military, don’t think that when they are under order to enforce vaccines that they will be polite about it. In crossing this line and then being given power to force others to get vaxed, how do you think they are going to go about it?

just me pontifical family

That’s a real picture above, though taken as a joke. Those involved will recognize the office. See the “About” page on the menu up top. Below is a screen shot of my first response to their investigation of me:


This post was also tagged as “Humor” not because this isn’t a thing, but because when I mentioned this rubbish after all the Sunday Masses for a bit of humor, the congregation laughed and laughed: Father George, the international criminal! Ooooh! :-)

There is a darker side to all of this, all too sad. That’s why I’ve included those other tags of this post.

Here’s a link to a post earlier in the day for some just as humorous background:

Vatican Bank: Fr George do you launder money and help terrorists?

For me, this is all entertainment, who can bait the other with more alacrity. So far, I think I’m winning. Let’s see if they send me a name. Then it will get interesting, and more humorous. Otherwise, I suppose they will merely freeze the account, you know, probably to take the money for money laundering and the financing of international terrorism.

Church Penal Code Canon Law Book VI revision declared as deck chairs rearranged

https://www.vaticannews.va/en/vatican-city/news/2021-06/penal-law-abuse-canon-law-vi-press-conference.html

  • Canon 1321 §1: everyone is considered innocent until the contrary is proven.

Great! But, oh, I forgot. The prophets were stoned to death, cut in two. Jesus was condemned and put to death. Thomas More was decapitated. Fr James Altman was smacked down…

If anyone dares to say that – Hey! It’s all good now! We’ve made progress! – pretty much they are blaspheming. The Code of Canon Law isn’t going to make those attacking the doctrine and morality and the liturgy of the Church and the Sacraments and attacking Jesus and our Blessed Mother into saints who actually obey the 10 Commandments, much less the Code of Canon Law in any iteration. Perhaps it’s a good revision. But do not put your trust in such horses.

You want proof of the foundation for that cynicism?

When I had to endure sitting through the VIRTUS® course at the Pontifical College Josephinum back in the day, a course unique to seminaries, different from that given to the laity, I had to complain about many points which were entirely pro-homosexualist. One in particular that I cite to this day regards “red flags” when deciding whether or not to report a suspicious person. Out of a long list of possible requirements, there had to be at least two in the list that were present before one would be allowed to report on the suspicious behavior of someone possibly crossing boundaries. One of the things on that list was showing pornography to minors. But you can’t report that behavior, mind you, unless you have another indicator to demonstrate not only a pattern but that which is entrenched in a number of ways.

NO! The second I would see someone showing pornography to minors (or anyone else) is the very second that they will find themselves on the ground sucker-punched, possible jaw-broken, eye-socket broken, and only then have 911 called for their medical treatment and for their arrest. I don’t care if this happened to be a rich layman or a narcissist priest or some bishop or cardinal. Ain’t gonna happen at my church. I’m not going to wait for another red flag that there has possibly been a possible boundary violation.

And I’m not going to say that the porn pusher is to be “considered innocent until the contrary is proven.” No, he’s going to out cold, on the spot. Go ahead, burn me at the stake. Hier stehe ich. I kann nicht anders. Gott helfe mir.

The newly revised Penal Code in Canon Law does outlaw any such activity. However, the very Holy See are the ones who have strongly pushed VIRTUS® and the homosexualist presenters. Remember the “abuse summit” at the Gregorian some years ago? I’m afraid that however good this all sounds, those who are the top of the heap over in the Holy See ought also to be taken out of ministry regardless of prescription. Promoters of Justice will know of whom I speak, perhaps themselves. What I could only call demonic hypocrisy, scandalizing the entire Church, would seem to undo any “prescription” (time limits) on prosecution. Yes, let’s start with the Promoters of Justice, shall we, you know, the homosexualists, those who sollicit crimes under the guise of ladder-climbing and political correctness?

P.S. I note that the effective date of the new penal code isn’t until the end of 2021. That has lots of implications. But one implication is this: good Canon Lawyers can use this time to put cases together to smack down criminals on day one.

Pastorally sensitive is being divisive, and that’s carefully supported in Canon Law

From FoxNews: “The head of the Vatican’s doctrine office is warning U.S. bishops to deliberate carefully and minimize divisions before proceeding with a possible plan to rebuke Roman Catholic politicians such as President Joe Biden for receiving Communion even though they support abortion rights.”


“Minimize divisions”? Let’s take a look at that…

  • Did the Dems vote God out of their party platform, dividing God from everything that happens in the world? Yes.
  • Do the Dems push maniacally to rip kids apart in the womb and after birth, dividing, shredding the image of God in the least of the brethren? Yes.
  • Do the Dems hate the elderly, attacking the Little Sisters of the Poor in their effort to assist the elderly, dividing the elderly from the care they need? Yes.
  • Do the Dems attack the image of God proclaimed in Genesis as male and female with family, thus dividing the image of God? Yes.

Diabolical? Yes. That’s from the Greek, meaning to throw apart, to divide. Division aimed at God and God’s image is diabolical. Do we “minimize divisions” when we not only ignore such diabolical interventions but bless them, consecrate them, proclaim them as holy, to be imitated, by giving Holy Communion to those who divisory in this way? Not at all. The divide is made all the greater between the saints and the malicious, between those who follow Jesus and those who attack Jesus both personally and in the least of the brethren.

In all of this it is very difficult to find anyone who speaks of Jesus. The “good” commentators will speak of “it”, you know, the thing.

They will be respectful, have right doctrine, but, really, it’s very difficult to find someone who will speak the Holy Name of Jesus, that in receiving Holy Communion, the Eucharist – you know, the thing – they are in fact face to Face Jesus, the Divine Son of the Living God, the Divine Son of the Immaculate Conception (she who had Jesus within her womb for nine months and did not rip Jesus to shreds with abortion).

Why can’t we just say Jesus? Why can’t we say that ripping kids up in the womb, kids who are the image of Jesus, and then receiving Jesus Himself at Holy Mass into one’s bosom isn’t consonant, and isn’t to be done, so that such horrific monsters like Joey Biden are to be flat out denied the reception of Jesus for the good of their own souls?

It’s pastorally sensitive to deny Holy Communion, Jesus Himself, to the likes of Joey Biden. Those who maliciously administer Holy Communion, Jesus Himself, to the likes of Joey Biden risk going straight to hell, even if they are merely any bishop, merely any priest, merely any Extraordinary Minister of Holy Communion.

It’s pastorally sensitive to be divisive, dividing the likes of Joey Biden from reception of Jesus.

Jesus said He has brought a sword of division. We had better use that sword of division lest we be divided from eternal salvation.

My first duty as a priest is to be divisive since my first duty as a priest is to bring Jesus, the Great Divider, to His Little Flock, to feed the lambs, to tend the sheep, to feed the sheep, discerning with such divisory spirit just who is a lamb and who is sheep and not a wolf in sheep’s clothing. My first duty is not to feed the likes of this:

Letting the likes of Joey Biden receive Jesus in Holy Communion is to confirm him in being a wolf and risks sending him straight to hell. Those who maliciously allow that, are they not also risking going straight to hell? Are they not wolves in sheep’s clothing as well?

Where’s a real guard-donkey when you need one?

In following up on my priestly vocation from Jesus I agreed to be divisory with Jesus. I volunteered to be a guard-donkey of Jesus’ Little Flock.

Meanwhile, what the hell is that Jesuit guy at the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith doing? He is being terribly divisory, causing division. He casting all apart: diabolical. How ironic.

Now, having said that, am I liable to being smacked down by the very Church I seek to defend, as many priests are being smacked down at this moment for that reason? No, and neither are they. But it is happening to many. Let’s take a look at the law of the Church, the Code of Canon Law to see if I’m amiss on that:

  • Canon 1369 A person who in a public show or speech, in published writing, or in other uses of the instruments of social communication utters blasphemy, gravely injures good morals, expresses insults, or excites hatred or contempt against religion or the Church is to be punished with a just penalty.

Correcting even an ecclesiastical personage even of great rank, even the Holy Father, is none of that. Instead, it’s speaking with the pontifically mandated parrhesia (speaking the truth boldly, with charity, for the salvation of souls). Sure, the truth hurts for those who don’t want the truth. Sure, there might be retaliation from those who have great authority in lording it over the sheep, but that doesn’t mean they are either correct or are doing that charitably.

  • Canon 1373 A person who publicly incites among subjects animosities or hatred against the Apostolic See or an ordinary because of some act of power or ecclesiastical ministry or provokes subjects to disobey them is to be punished by an interdict or other just penalties.

Yes, well, we have to ask if individuals in the Apostolic See or an Ordinary are acting ultra vires, that is, beyond their powers, and so are acting as individuals and not legitimately with some act of power or ecclesiastical ministry. Charitable correction sometimes has to be harsh, as we know with John the Baptist and Jesus. And because some are in need of harsh correction there may appear to be animosity or hatred from the corrector, even when there is none. It is a supreme act of selfless charity to correct someone who is breakneck running straight into hell. Provoking people to disobey administrative acts that provoke sin is not disobedience. It is supreme obedience to keep people from sin.

This modus operandi which I strive to follow in sacerdotal ministry is to fly in the face of sin, and to disregard any order to sin. The objective is the salvation of souls. I have been ordered in decades past in far away places to give Jesus in Holy Communion to manifest pro-abort politicians and to manifest grave sinners who were members of those respective parishes. It ain’t gonna happen. I suffered the consequences, which were draconian, that is, diabolical, that is, divisory. I’m just trying to do what is right in natural law, the 10 Commandments, in Canon Law, particularly before my Judge, Christ Jesus, who will come to judge the living and the dead and the world by fire. Amen.

It just struck me that there will surely be an objection that to be fair in all things “political”, I would also have to refuse Jesus in Holy Communion to, say, someone like Mother Teresa of Calcutta, you know, to make a point that the Church is not siding with any political party (as if any of that makes any sense). No, no. It would be worse: surely the reprimand would be something along the lines of administering Holy Communion to the likes of freakish pro-abortion Joey Biden but then refusing the likes of a Mother Teresa, you know, because Mother Teresa is like, you know, “rigid.”

Is is the great Father James Altman who got me thinking on all this divisoriness. Many incidents in my priestly life come to mind where the actual world divisory was used. I’ve had people say that I’m precisely 180 degrees turned away from being a “man of consensus.” I can only blame that on the Lord Jesus, thanks be God our Father.

  • We are not to unified among ourselves mired together in the lowest common denominator, then calling that such sharing in filth some kind of unity with God. No.
  • We are to be united to God and because of that, with Jesus, we are to wield the sword of division, the eternal Word of God, in such manner that we are all crucified to ourselves so as live through, with and in Christ Jesus.

That’s the end of division and the establishment of true unity in the Most Holy Trinity.
