Juxtaposition tells the story

Vatican Bank on 30 September 2022
IOR just got enriched by… a lot… and a lot of banks in the world just got lots poorer. September 30, 2022, is the deadline set by Pope Francis on which all assets throughout the Vatican, the Holy See, including extraterritorial arrangements, are to be transferred from wherever they are into the IOR, Vatican Bank.
That ensures that however much oversight over such monies that has been provided over against money money laundering by way of concordat or agreements with other nations, any enforceable controls have entirely disappeared, you know, except for smokescreens. Once it’s all in IOR, a shroud of darkness descends. Not that that’s the motive, but…
How much money laundering? By whom? Is it done by way of, say, Hezbollah or other terrorist groups?

“Den of Thieves” Sankt Gallen & Anti-Mafia
So far, in this series:
- Church Militant “Den of Thieves” hits close to home
- “Den of Thieves” Vatican Bank and money laundering: AUM “accreditation”
- “Den of Thieves” Coincidences! Che Bella!
- “Den of Thieves” Death threat! Bellissima!
The “Den of Thieves” documentary is about how some few people, allegedly dazzled with money, allegedly cynically used the desire of others, that desire being to provide for the common good as motivated by genuine religious piety. It’s not that those others who were being used were “important” or “had extraordinary talents.” No. They were simply convenient stooges in the eyes of the cynical, nothing, pawns to be removed at will.
This resonates with me because it seems to me that, at a certain point, I was set to be one of the stooges for this alleged money laundering scheme, just another convenient, useful idiot in the eyes of those same cynical people. It was a perfect storm of coincidences. Nothing more. I’m nothing, nobody, but certainly eager in my naïveté. Apologies for dragging you though some personal history, but what is recounted here about my being thrown into the dark side of the Church and then about anti-Mafia connections feeds into what I think may be a lead someone might want to take up regarding the alleged money laundering of the (Catholic) American University of Madaba, Jordan (AUM) and the alleged money laundering of Vatican Bank. No apologies, however, for my throwing in some humor with this. We gotta lighten it up, right?
Encouragement to get to know the dark side
Just by happenstance logistical circumstance, as a nobody seminarian, way back in the day, I became friends with a newly ordained priest who was actually a believer, solidly Catholic, pious, one of the few truly brilliant minds in the Church today. Over the decades he became concerned that I was too entrenched in being oblivious to the real world, the way things are, the glaring wounds slashed upon, hammered into the Body of Christ. Over a period of some months he tried to convince me that part of being faithful is to recognize all the unfaithfulness there is all around us, also in the Holy See, the Roman Curia, Satan prowling to murder souls. I had been too content with seeing myself as evil, but, please God, saved by Jesus Christ. Out of sloth, I didn’t want to also much notice the needs of the Lord’s Little Flock.
One day, many years having gone by but still repeating his mantra against my naïvité, he then added that a certain papabile (someone quite likely to be elected Pope in a future conclave) with whom he was acquainted ex officio, needed a driver, and that I would be perfect for this, as it would be my chance to get to know the dark side, those individuals in the Church who had chosen not to follow Jesus. Finally I would be put face to face with the needs of the Lord’s Little Flock that my friend knew all too well. But, he warned me repeatedly, this papabile is likely a homosexualist. Well, that was no surprise. I had been surrounded by that in the seminary and throughout my priesthood. This simply meant that I was to meet up with sociopathic rationalizations now more than ever.
This is the kind of thing an ecclesiastical library rat – the most extreme in wanting to be nobody so as to make the silence of a highly protected library effective – would be happy to do, as it would permit (1) continuing in the joy of being nobody, (2) it would afford entertainment (which was otherwise walking about Rome memorizing Greek and Hebrew paradigms) and (3) might possibly aid in the betterment of the Church, however that would work out, trusting my friend that he knew what he was doing. He was an occasional Confessor for me and, on occasion, also a spiritual director. I was well aware that this was also for the good of my soul, meant to rip me out of the entirely too-easy-life of the naïve.
My friend then said he’s going to make a phone call to set this up. Some days later, he told me that I was expected at that papabile’s residence at my convenience. I put this off for weeks, but at his insistence, I went. Was I being set up to be a spy, reporting back to my friend? Sure. Obviously. That’s also the point. I trusted him and still do trust him to this day, entirely. Is that being naïve? I was learning.
On the periphery of Sankt Gallen
In the space of just a year and a half I was catapulted into extreme Church politics, gaining in perspective. This included moving amongst the movers and shakers and other papabili of the time. For instance, I gave a retreat to a certain group of priests and power-monsignors of the Archdiocese of Milan as a favor to Cardinal Martini, S.J., a fellow “Scripture scholar” of the Pontifical Biblical Institute, if you’ll forgive my adding myself in name to such a gnostic group. After that retreat, Martini tried to draw me in closer, having his minions, now inside the Jesuit Biblicum, put pressure on me to do translations for his non-stop verbiage published at the time everywhere in the world. On one occasion, I was brought to within a few miles of Sankt Gallen when that particular papabile for whom I was a “driver” threw an apoplectic tantrum as he remembered some real-time church politics taking place there. This actually scared me. He was frantic: “Turn into that parking lot! Now! – Now turn around! – Go, go, go!” I had no idea what Sankt Gallen was back then. Needless to say, this incident indicates that I wasn’t quite in the inner circle, though I would continue to be invited to accompany the power-Cardinals at whatever Pontifical event. I’ve been given the name “the janitor”, but now I was “the driver”. Still a nobody, thanks be to God. Sorry, just a little humor to lighten it up a bit:
Again, for me, all this was entertainment in the midst of stratospheric academics. It was an opportunity to do what I never do, provoking or responding to ferocious discussions on the most essential refinements of perspective that was “steering the policy” (a phrase I hate) regarding the world and the Church. I would try to point out that our redemption wrought in Christ is the driving engine of history, that Jesus is the Lord of History. Deaf ears for that pronouncement.
In those years I could and would wend my own way throughout, say, the Secretariat of State, from the “Tower” to the Terzo Piano, always starting from the wrong door, say, the back door of the back door, just to gaslight security, teaching them a lesson in just how unprepared they are, just to do it. Conversely, I would be brought into even the most remote offices and back corridors throughout Vatican City State. For instance, I was left home alone, if you will, for hours, with the secret archives specifically of the Congregation for Bishops, right in front of me, I’m guessing as a test. The chain of custody, if you will, wouldn’t be lost if there were cameras. But maybe I was the stooge. Or simply trusted. There’s my naïveté.
Weirdly, I was invited, pressured really, by a number higher-ups and papabili throughout the years to investigate the maze of tunnels also used for electrical conduits and old pneumatic communications systems crisscrossing below Vatican City, throughout the Roman Curia, and everything inclusive in between, and one of which was still used. My questions, retrieving answers, and countered with recommendations, were all about security. I heard later that one of those recommendations for the residence “Santa Marta” involving what I’ll call “security windows”, with a certain chemical barrier, was taken up with the most up-to-date technologies. Another recommendation was taken up for the Holy Office after my own computer was disappeared, which is laughable; whoever it was got a lot of Greek and Hebrew paradigms and exegetical notes. Ooo! The Hail Mary in Greek! The Lord’s Prayer in Syriac! Many offices in the Curia had been hit that very night.
My friend who threw me into this maelstrom told me frequently that I was beginning to be “feared in the Roman Curia.” This was a warning. And this wasn’t because I was important. It’s because I was an unknown quantity. People hate that. He himself was taken aback as all this was taking on a life of its own. He didn’t elaborate, but the original papabile to whom I was “assigned”, so to speak, often mentioned… incidents… meetings… in which I was brought up by this or that Cardinal Prefect, this or that Archbishop Secretary, including various and sundry at the top of the Secretariat of State. There were objections about me that were met with strong defenses. That particular papabile (who set me up with Martini), named names, stating who my friends were, repeating their names again and again over the years. This surprised me, as I had never met or talked to such people, and wondered what that was all about.
I am not bragging about this. It makes me feel unclean. But learning about the dark side was good for my priesthood. Being at least slightly less naïve has provided that I can be a bit more available to Jesus for what He wants of me in navigating all the hell there is in this dark world.
But such a life history can and did have unintended consequences. Whenever one moves in the circles of those who are also, say, at the center of international finances, to the point of teaching financiers philosophical nuances of rationalizations for whatever economic systems, that is, to the point of manipulating world leaders, or those who in turn manipulate world leaders, through larger than life institutions such as the United Nations, the World Economic Forum, the World Bank, various parliaments and influential mega-rich individuals, it is then that one is also noticed by the intelligence community. They want to know who such a person is, for better or worse. And that’s just really annoying for them. I was annoying for them. Again, it’s not because I’m important. It’s because I’m happy to be the useful idiot for the good of my own soul. The question for those who notice this regards whether I’m willing to be even more of an idiot than I already am. Trusting my friend is one thing. Trusting intel is quite another.
Recruitment tactics of anti-Mafia GICO
Years after being thrown into the dark side, so, now in the mid-2000s, I was at targeted for recruitment by the Gruppo d’investigazione sulla criminalità organizzata (Organized Crime Investigation Group = GICO), which is a specialized department of the Guardia di Finanza, the Guardians of Finance, an Italian law enforcement agency, a subsection of their Department of Defense. That should tell you something about those in the Roman Curia I was hanging around with. Some of the GICO are Tier 1 operators. They investigate and finish what they start regarding international drug trafficking, smuggling, financial crimes, money laundering, terrorism, what always goes hand in hand with money laundering, which is the financing of terrorism, not to mention their attempts to tamp down human and sex trafficking. They also have much to do, therefore, with customs and border protection. But most especially, with intensity, any GICO adrenaline rush is being everywhere and everything all that which is anti-Mafia. They’re the ones.
My recruitment, at first, wasn’t meant to tear me away from the inner sanctums of the library of the Pontifical Biblical Institute, where I was daily, literally, the first to enter and the last to leave. Academic endeavors having nothing to do with the Mafia were one of the aspects of my life lending me, strangely, the street cred needed to move among those who were to be my named targets for spying, that is, some particular Cardinals of the Holy Roman Church. On the Italian peninsula, where there’s money, there are also all-too-clever mafiosi. There were two individuals involved in my recruitment to assist with anti-Mafia activities, one I’ll call The Thug, the other The buffoon.
The thug entered my life after I once again arrived in Italy, and had sent boxes of books back to Rome. The thug had waylaid those boxes, sending them instead to his anti-Mafia office he was temporarily using at the docks down in Naples. Killing two birds with one stone, I first attended the celebrations for San Gennaro on 19 September and then went to “his” office. He himself didn’t appear, though we had had many phone calls leading up to this would-be meeting. He threatened me with all sorts of trumped up charges, such as tax evasion for using old and tattered dictionaries instead of buying new ones in Italy. Pfft. More seriously, I had sent restricted medicine to myself from oversees, a supply of some months as it takes forever to get a doctor in Rome and this was medicine on which I depend to stay alive from day to day. My bad. I had brought a supply on the plane with me, but I would need this other medicine soon enough. My anti-Mafia friend had waylaid this at the airport in Rome. I complained that I would have to go overseas to get the medicine and then return again, continuously. I told him honestly that I didn’t know it was restricted. Kicking me in the face was now counterproductive for him, so he let me have the meds as well.
This anti-Mafia thug, never letting up, was forever bragging about his accomplishments, what rank he held in the anti-Mafia and what his role had been in famous Mafia take-downs up to that point. He was poised to become part of the top council of the anti-Mafia. I’m guessing that such stories, true or not, were meant as a threat as much as some sort of credibility statement. He would literally hunt me down wherever in Italy I was, befriending me by, say, taking me on day-trips to whatever ecclesiastical pilgrimage site. I played along with such shenanigans because in doing so, one learns much about motivations. Indeed, the whole time he would speak of what he wanted me to take on as assignments from him, so that I would report to him about – you guessed it – the Cardinals whose names and residences he correctly iterated. He had this witnessed, though such conversations would not be public. I was to to be a spy, but this time for the Italian Ministry of Defense. One of the more ironic day trips was to Orvieto. He said he wanted to get my comment on Signorelli’s mural of the anti-Christ in the side chapel of that zebra-Cathedral. Clever.
For a really cool slide-show about the zebra-esque “Duomo” from Google Maps: HERE. Really awesome. And he was right. I was truly impressed. But I think my explanation of the anti-Christ went right over his head.
By now any threats were over, and he had moved on to bribery. For instance, for the summer months of my return to Italy I was living on the top of a mountain some 100 kms North of Rome. I would commute by bus which normally went to the top of that mountain. He had said that he had arranged with the chief at the local police station at the base of the mountain to give me a ride, personally, wherever I wanted whenever I wanted. Imagine the hatred that chief would have for that guy, and by extension, for me. Immediately after such arrangements were made, the bus was cancelled at the bottom of the mountain, and likewise the train. Just when I arrived. Again and again. Coincidence?
This left all the bus passengers flustered. Even though a number of times it would be raining, and even though it was a hike of many miles up the all too steep mountain, an old volcano, I wouldn’t take the bribe. I was asked about my not taking the bribe some time later. The guy was really angry. I had made a fool of him. Bribery is the flip side of extortion. The thug was so very sleazy that I didn’t trust him at all. Hence, my nickname for him, the thug.
Soon after this failure, still in the mid-2000s, I was at targeted for recruitment once again by GICO, this time intensifying the pressure by using someone a bit more clean, more refined, more polite, with a judicial grasp of the Italian language, a talent preemptively winning all arguments in Italy. This buffoon was the top Italian military attorney, now also getting his degree in Canon Law as he was the named liaison between the Italian Department of Defense and the Holy See. The Italian military cooperates with the Holy See in just about everything security-wise, and there is a lot of legal maneuvering what with ever refined concordats and such. He had moved into my priests’ residence in Rome and after no time he was wanting to arrange that I become a pastor of a certain parish in southern Italy in order to help them arrest certain mafiosi by their bugging of my Confessionals, etc.
Unlike the thug, he did this recruiting as if it were all good, above board. He did this publicly, hoping to legitimize his request by attempting to make such an agreement with me in front of important and well connected ecclesiastics in Rome, one of them a well known professor, a consultant for the Holy See, entrenched in the Middle East, and a Pontifical Confessor at one of the major papal basilicas in Rome, always at hobnobbing events, known to everyone in the Holy See and amongst the worldly politicians of the day. Since I’m actually a priest, there’s no way I’m going to betray the Seal of Confession. They would all have known of the automatic excommunication awaiting any priest who breaks the Seal of Confession. I said this plainly. This attorney guy failed as well.
Yet, for him to get to that point, finalizing arrangements for this rather sensitive operation with the Holy See, this attorney guy would have already done his due diligence in my regard. Such a background check, if you will, would have not been possible unless it had been put directly in front of the guy in this series whom I nickname Bellissima. In proportion to this being out of the ordinary, coming from the Italian Department of Defense, such a request would be duly noted, remembered. More than that, Bellissima would have been acutely aware that I had gotten a Propaganda Due “P2” guy out of the Holy Office right at that time. That was quite the nuclear explosion all on its own, and was confirmed for me years later by the head of Intel for the Holy See. But I digress.
But perhaps this buffoon guy was actually doing me a favor, giving me the opportunity to publicly manifest a rejection, thus distancing myself from any mafia-esque disgruntlement. But I’m not “important” enough for that kind of cover which is at best ineffective. There would still be a question mark over my name. Even a buffoon would know this, and so would anyone hearing of this. After my rejecting his offer to assist in taking down some individuals in the Mafia, he could have come to me later, privately, and said, “Well played! Hahaha. So, what’s your real answer?”
Back to alleged money laundering at the American University of Madaba and Vatican Bank
Fast forward a few years when it’s now crunch time for the new American University of Madaba, Jordon, which was seemingly, allegedly, from the beginning, set up as a front for money laundering as pointed out in Church Militant’s documentary “Den of Thieves” (which I’ve repeatedly showcased at the top of every installment in this series). It’s now 2010 and AUM, though incorporated in, of all places, New Hampshire, has zero accreditation in the USA, not even in New Hampshire. It all seems to be just a lot of deceptive fakery. Important donors, to the tune of millions of dollars, were getting skittish. It was all about to implode. The perfect storm.
When it was discovered that I was willing to work and teach in Israel and then be transferred to within an easy bike ride of the American University of Madaba, and that I had already assisted a university level Catholic institution to get their accreditation, and that I could easily have supplied the Holy Mass and sacraments and whatever, say, optional courses in philosophy, theology, Scripture (even though AUM was not explicitly mentioned in that trajectory of life laid out for me), well, that information would allegedly have been shared with Bella in New Hampshire. I’m thinking Bella is the guy who assisted AUM with incorporation, with “accreditation”, and, most importantly, with the money laundering. I’m thinking that Bella knew absolutely nothing about me. But happy to capitalize on such an opportunity in giving AUM a little boost, he immediately called his friend, Bellissima, with whom he’s as thick as thieves, so as to say: “We have a convenient stooge, a useful idiot, someone who’s nobody, who can help AUM’s standing.”
See previous installments of this series about Bella and Bellissima. It would have been quite impossible for Bellissima not to have known about my activities in the Holy See and then with the anti-Mafia. For all of them, I’m exactly, precisely the person that would have to be kept far away from AUM. As I mentioned in a previous posting in this series, a threat, delivered with consummate politeness yet thuggery of enforcing the threat was called into my own ecclesiastical higher-ups, putting a kibosh on my getting on the plane to Tel Aviv within hours, that cancellation causing catastrophic difficulties in many countries. I was entrenched in being a nobody and that was the problem. I couldn’t be verified as a friendly, and there was a question mark as to why I had been hanging with papabili and anti-Mafia for years.
All just my opinion. I’m not implicating anyone, not naming anyone. The underlying allegations of money laundering are made by someone else whom I don’t know, whom I’ve never talked with, in the video up top of this post. What I write here might perhaps be considered as a lead by some few. I don’t know. I’m just putting my own experiences out there. At least for me, this narrative answers the most questions the most consistently and the most simply. Perhaps it’s all fiction. I don’t know. To me, it raises questions.
As the Lord’s providence would have it, I would again cross paths with both Bella and Bellissima not long thereafter. And it wasn’t pleasant.

Den of Thieves: Death threat! Bellissima!
So far, in this series:
1. Church Militant “Den of Thieves” hits close to home
2. “Den of Thieves” Vatican Bank and money laundering: AUM “accreditation”
3. “Den of Thieves” – Coincidences! Che Bella!
This post is about a personal trajectory that would inescapably involve me personally with the American University of Madaba (AUM). This came to a dead stop, so to speak, with the strangest death threat I ever heard about, and it’s the weirdness that, I think, is telling. I never would have connected the dots without the Church Militant documentary “Den of Thieves.” I am most grateful for life-altering questions in my life being answered.
Time lines are useful. Let’s see:
- Mid-2005: Pope Benedict XVI blesses the cornerstone of an important new project for the Middle East, the American University of Madaba in Jordan. Yours truly, meanwhile, is 24/7/365 working on a Doctoral Thesis in the Library of the Pontifical Biblical Institute in Rome.
- Mid-2010: I’m invited to go back to Jerusalem where I lived for seven months during Saddam Hussein’s missile attacks decades earlier. I was to go to a certain institution which I had visited a thousand times, even in the most terribly violent of circumstances when not even one other person of whatever religion or law enforcement position would show up. I only mention that to demonstrate what is perhaps a stupid lack of fear, as a confession of idiocy. But it is what it is. No fear. This will become important as the timeline continues. While at that particular institution, I was to teach at a certain academic institution which grants doctorates for the Holy See in certain matters. From there I would be brought across the Allenby Bridge by a certain most significant personage in the Middle East so as to be established at a certain pilgrimage center in Jordan. Meanwhile, my CV has been growing significantly. That pilgrimage destination is an easy bike ride in proximity to the American University of Madaba. In mid-2010, it was crunch time for AUM, as it was now five years since construction started in 2005 as donors were getting nervous about everything to do with AUM. There wasn’t much in the way of professors to make the AUM “Catholic”, as promised. AUM had absolutely nothing in the way of accreditation in the USA where AUM is incorporated. As a coincidence I might mention that by this time in my life I had already aided another university level international Catholic institution to get their accreditation and had taught at university level for many years. It would have been a perfect fit. To be clear, no one had mentioned any purpose of putting me at AUM in any capacity. However, my participation in the circumstances would have been entirely inescapable. I didn’t know this at the time. I didn’t know such a place existed.
- Still mid-2010: To get things started, I had to get a visa as a religious worker in Israel. The problem was that already for a year and a half the Israeli consular services were on strike, and were not granting visas to, say, Catholic priests and nuns, so that institutions were limited or shut down, such as hospitals and clinics and schools and orphanages. Yet, with most unique arrangements worthy of a movie, I was given a visa, which had to be only in person, only in Washington, D.C.
- Days later: With everything in my life packed up stateside, and with tickets in hand, and just hours from heading to the airport, someone, I don’t know who, called my ecclesiastical higher-ups stateside and reported that, what with increased violence in the Middle East (which increase is normal for thousands of years), it was probable that I would be murdered. That’s the stupidest thing I’ve about ever heard in my life, and the strangest. This has nothing to do with the personages in the Middle East who arranged this trajectory in my life. The one offering that cautionary threat over the phone hours before I got on the plane, you know, as a supposed courtesy, offered a further threat, this time to my ecclesiastical higher-ups: Since they were now forewarned by this out-of-the-blue phone call, they would also consequently be blamed publicly by the caller if they allowed me to get on the plane to Tel Aviv in some hours time. So, that’s (1) a threat for me and (2) a threat for my higher-ups. Effective. That’s someone who is practiced.
- Minutes after that phone call, I had to call Israel and inform those who had already placed me on quite literally do-or-die schedules to take me off. That was like a nuclear bomb going off in the Old City of Jerusalem. The chaos of the next hours and days for them trying to get coverage for me also involved three European countries and the disruption of very many lives. It’s not something anyone will forget. This proves the innocence of most anyone connected with the underlying alleged fiasco simmering below the surface. Whatever about Bella, mentioned previously in this series, the identity of the one proffering the threat was likely someone seemingly entirely removed. Needless to say, I did not get on the plane.
- A couple of years raced by, and I was soon pastor of the parish where I am now. I’ve been here for nine years. Only now, with the documentary “Den of Thieves” do some things begin to make sense for me.
So, what’s my conjecture about the identity of the one relating the death threat? It may be significant as a lead in trying to understand what’s happening. I asked the one who received that phone call many times about the identity of the caller. The response was anger and refusal. So, that’s a dead end, as it were. But I think Bella (see the post prior to this one in this series) found out I was going over to the Middle East and was on a trajectory to be situated right next to the American University of Madaba and, knowing nothing about me, was happy to relate the news that someone was found who would be an asset to the University in such manner as to calm down and encourage anxious donors. Being happy about this, he had to call a best buddy, a gentleman we’ll call Bellissima, who in turn works in the Holy See, wherein the IOR, Vatican Bank, is found. Criminal homosexualist Bella has for decades been “thick as thieves” with criminally homosexualist Bellissima.
Bellissima already knew me by way of reputation. He could offer a report on my usefulness as a stooge or the danger of my being anywhere in the vicinity of the American University of Madaba in Jordan. Why is it that as soon as he heard my name he would immediately make a death threat to keep me far away from all operations in the Middle East is fodder for yet another post.

“Den of Thieves” – Coincidences! Che Bella!
So far, in this series:
1. Church Militant “Den of Thieves” hits close to home
2. “Den of Thieves” Vatican Bank and money laundering: AUM “accreditation”
This post is simply about some rather interesting coincidences regarding international finance and money laundering. I have a certain guy in mind whom we’ll call Bella for convenience. These coincidences are such that some people in the know may consider them to be leads for investigation. I’m not making any connections, nor any allegations. I’m certainly not identifying anyone. But it’s all rather shocking.
- Bella lived and worked in New Hampshire. Of all places in the world for the American University of Madaba, Jordan, to be incorporated, AUM has done that in New Hampshire. Interesting. Who did that for AUM, someone somehow associated with Bella? Just a question of coincidence.
- Bella is particularly skilled in international finance. AUM is particularly proud of it’s academic skills in regard to international finance. AUM has allegations of malfeasance against it in regard to international finance. I know, I know, just a coincidence. Here’s a screen shot:
- Bella is extremely skilled in risk retention strategies, perhaps the best alive today in the whole world. And that’s an understatement. AUM is particularly proud of it’s academic skills in regard to risk retention. I know, I know, just a coincidence. Here’s a screen shot:
- Bella seems to be administering some 900+ million dollars in a particular account, but that could be mistaken. I don’t have the bandwidth or access or financial background to check that. A researcher mentioned this. AUM, meanwhile, was being given a 900 million dollar loan as mentioned in the video. It seems that this was already delivered before the would-be fall guy in the video backed out. Not it’s just sitting in an offshore account. I know, I know, just a coincidence. Happens all the time. And I’m waiting for the researcher to come up with something a bit more convincing. But the coincidences I’m not mentioning in conjunction with this are… just… wow. I know, I know, all just coincidences.
- Bella has had entirely life-changing difficulties with the law, going to prison for financial malfeasance. There are now grave allegations against AUM for financial malfeasance. I know, I know, all just coincidences.
These coincidences continue. And this series will continue.

“Den of Thieves” Vatican Bank and money laundering: AUM “accreditation”
The “Den of Thieves” documentary mentions that the American University of Madaba (AUM) has questionable accreditation. So, I thought I would delve into that a bit. Here’s the reporting of accreditation of the American University of Madaba on their own website:
Let’s take a look at each of the elements therein:
[[My opinion: Recall that AUM is in Jordan but is incorporated in New Hampshire, USA. Going on ten years now, AUM brags still today that the Governor of NH at the time merely provided that AUM, in seeking accreditation, is subject to the statutes regulating the granting of accreditation. But that’s not accreditation. It’s like: “Go ahead! Try to get accreditation! Make my day!” As it is, a notation at the end of AUM’s web-page states that AUM is still seeking accreditation in the USA, you know, if you were wondering.]]
[[My opinion: There’s no date on that. So, it’s likely that those two years have passed. The date is of central importance. Moreover, to be “eligible to proceed with an application for candidacy” means exactly nothing. Specifically, it “is not candidacy.” Should one brag about this?]]
[[My opinion: This is from “American Medical Technologies”. It’s not a statement of accreditation. It’s merely acknowledging the fact that, in the opinion of American Medical Technologies, that there may be some who may be eligible to sit for certification exams which are given not by the American University in Madaba, but by a third party. So, is the University merely a coaching team for, like, sitting for ACTs or SATs, in this case, something for AMT? I mean, AUM seems to assist students with what seems to be analogous to the GED…]]
[[My opinion: Ooo! Arabic! It says that the Higher Education Accreditation and Quality Assurance Commission certifies that the American University of Madaba is generally accredited and lists specific programs that are accredited. And although it speaks of the fact that this takes place in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, that doesn’t mean that it is the government of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan which is granting any accreditation. A disclaimer was appended:
- “Accreditation is not a legal permission but, rather, deals with the qualitative nature of the educational system. AUM is a private, not-for-profit University, and has been accredited in Jordan since 2011 by the Higher Education Accreditation Commission (HEAC), which operates independently of the Ministry of Higher Education and Scientific Research, thus providing an independent evaluation of the university. AUM also intends to seek accreditation in the United States.”
“Independent.” I have not been a member of any teaching faculties of universities in Jordan, so I’ll just have to take their word for the acceptability of HEAC. The United States does run on a voluntary system of accreditation, and there is a statement from HEAC that submission was voluntary.

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.

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

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.”
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.
(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:
- A Code of Silence in the U.S. Catholic Church: Affidavits
- Omertà in a Catholic Chancery — Affidavits Expanded
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:
“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.”
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!”
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, for Parolin, is not morally relevant, and therefore original sin, Redemption, a murder of someone more than 40 years ago is not relevant in regard to judgment for heaven or hell, for Parolin. But Jesus holds all of time in His hands as a creation…] 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 to us. That’s on them only.]
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. You are accountable to God for any murder you commit, no matter how long ago. By way of place? Place is irrelevant. You are accountable to God for any murder you commit or willingly benefit from even if the murder was in a sterile big-pharma laboratory. By way of number of people involved? That’s also irrelevant. It’s purposed-murder of the least of the brethren, of Jesus, by big-pharma precisely for research, development and testing of “vaccines”. Is it truly better to murder one Innocent Man than that a whole nation perish? That murder is a sin. 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. Yep. This is risking the unforgivable sin.]
The CDF note stated that using such vaccines does not in itself legitimize, even indirectly, the practice of abortion [Of course it does. It is abortion. What liars and murderers from the beginning. 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. Testing is essential to these procedures. These people have to ask themselves as to whether they themselves are malicious.] 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. I wonder if and how much “encouragement” big pharma gave the Vatican.]
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 [the most pro-abortion freakoids on the planet] 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 (see Rev. 6:9). 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. Go along to get along. $$$ 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.

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:
- Dei Verbum
- Lumen Gentium
- Sacrosanctum Concilium
- Gaudium et Spes
- Gravissimum Educationis
- Nostra Aetate
- Dignitatis Humanae
- 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.”
- 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.
- “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?
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.
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?
