Flowers for the Immaculate Conception (Pope = Immaculate Conception? ed.)

img_20181103_130007251_hdr~21631665395346723260..jpg

Imagine the best possible in a Pope, perhaps the martyrdom of Saint Peter.

Imagine the worst in a Pope, perhaps the denial of Peter not yet Saint Peter.

Either way, the Pope is the Pope, the Successor of Peter. So, we pray for him, stand by him, are in solidarity with him.

Does that mean that we, say, deny that Peter denied our Lord, or that we have to say that all Popes throughout their lives, throughout their pontificates are always and in every way saints? No, it doesn’t mean that. It means that we are obliged to pray for the father of the family of faith here upon this earth, you know, father, papa, Pope.

It still needs to be pointed out how much people jump into cynicism and condemn just for the sake of being fake news. For instance, recall how many throughout the Catholic world condemned Pope Francis to hell for “downplaying the importance of the papacy”, they said, by insisting as he did on being the Bishop of Rome. Damn him for insisting on being the Bishop of Rome, they said, when he should be saying that he’s the most illustrious, magnificent effervescent utterly grand Fill-in-the-Title, they said.

The fake news crowd were stunningly ignorant of all things Catholic, for it is because the Holy Father is first of all Bishop of Rome that he is the Successor of Peter, not the other way around. Get that?

How ironic that these same people, now so jaded, won’t these days use any titles for Pope Francis at all, and instead talk about how useless the papacy is, anyway, verging on condemning our Lord for founding the Church on the likes of Peter and, mind you, Peter’s successors, that is, on the person of the one Bishop of Rome.

Are you ready for irony? This proves that these same people, in proportion to how much they refuse to speak of the Bishop of Rome, the Successor of Peter, the Holy Father, the Supreme Pontiff, or even of the Pope, but merely of Francis, or Jorge, or Bergoglio… this shows proportionally just how ultramontanistic they are. It speaks to how much they have never understood our Lord founding the Church on the weak person of Peter, of the weak persons of the Successors of Peter. It speaks to how much they have no strength of faith, no security in the faith, wanting the Bishop of Rome to be their savior, but not Jesus. They know any Bishop of Rome is just another sinner like all the rest of us, and insisting that he himself be the Immaculate Conception know that they are setting up their rejection of him, that is, of the Church, that is, all the truth and morality that our Lord insists upon for us. That’s the point. That’s why people run to the fake news crowd. The fake news crowd become the Saviors. Fake news is all about power, dark power.

But the Pope is not the Immaculate Conception. I dare say he knows that. We pray for him as we pray for each other. Mary Undoer of Knots prays for him as she does for us.

Breathlessly, people throw all this to the side and say that I’m saying that everything that the Pope says and does is what any canonized saint would do. No. That’s malicious.

Some might say it’s just jaded cynicism, but, it seems to me that to get to the point of jaded cynicism one first of all and repeatedly must let oneself fall into malice, purposed hatred. Ah, but Mary prayers also those in such a sorry state. She wants us in heaven. All of us. Hopefully, we are among “the many.”

Flowers for the Immaculate Conception (Pope Francis on Mary’s virginity ed.)

img_20181015_152307078~26695188314271810272..jpg

You have heard recently that it was said that Jesus’ good mom, Mary, the immaculate ever virgin mother of God, had no intention whatsoever of remaining a virgin at all. This is to insult Mary as being stupid.

Consider that when the angel sent to her to announce that she was to be the Mother of the Divine Son of God, she asked how this could be since she knows not man. Mind you, she was betrothed to Joseph, to be married to him, but she is ruling out making babies with Joseph. She knows not man. She will not ever know man. She’s not ever going to give up on being a virgin. She knew absolutely that she was called by God to be virgin forever.

That doesn’t mean that she was ruling out following the command to be fruitful and multiply; that doesn’t mean she was ruling out being a mother.

When the angel explained that she would conceive inside her womb by the power of the overshadowing of the Holy Spirit, so that the One who is to be born of her will truly be the Divine Son of God, and when the angel again explained to her that during the very birth that Divine Son of God would be called “Holy” – necessitating that there be no blood offending Jewish purity laws (which would be impossible unless it would be a miraculous birth) – only then did she consent: “Yes!”

So, to repeat, saying that Mary had no intention to remain forever a virgin is to insult her as stupid or as being a liar. We recall what Pope Francis said about insulting one’s mother:

Of course, I have no intention to punch Pope Francis for having insulted Jesus’ good mom. I’ll leave that to Jesus (but see below). I do recall, however, that in mid-January 2015 Pope Francis insulted my mom by telling women generally not to breed like rabbits: as it is, I’m the fourth child of my own mother. She wasn’t a rabbit.

Now, having said all that: I forgive Pope Francis. I assume that he’s had a typical Jesuit anti-Catholic training in the seminary, and that he was taught to be dismissive of the Sacred Scriptures and the Fathers of the Church and the Councils of the Church. I assume that he thinks that he’s better than everyone before him because he lives today, you know, the old trick of being Promethean and all that, you know, because that’s the trick that everyone who taught him were playing when he was in the seminary. I assume that he’s no theologian, that he thinks it’s nice to speak of Mary as being “normal girl”, that he’s simply a political animal, you know, sincere in his vacuity, but sincere nonetheless. So, whatever. That’s on him. I forgive him.

That I forgive him – I’m his own Missionary of Mercy, right? – that forgiveness doesn’t mean I don’t hate it that people are scandalized, that people are not fed, that the brethren are not at all confirmed in the faith, that the Pope is not the sign of unity. I do hate all that. But I forgive him. And he does say the occasional good thing, you know, now and again. And he has, of course, never abused the gift of infallibility, nor could he.

Here’s the deal: I’ve done much worse. I’ve crucified the Son of the Living God, of the Immaculate ever Virgin Mary by way of my after-the-fact participation in original sin, by way of my own sin. We’re not made more righteous by throwing a tantrum and condemning others. We’re not made more righteous by being cynical and unforgiving.

Regardless of whatever Pope Francis says to insult Mary, I myself will continue to give flowers to the Immaculate Conception, asking that she ask her Divine Son Jesus to forgive Pope Francis for such insults and outrages.

You know what happens then? Then I am peaceful in heart and soul once again. Thank you, Jesus; thank you, Mary.

You know when obfuscation is afoot… (Pope Francis’ advisers on crisis)

img_20181005_091411369~24292028539677911720..jpg

Both “packages” delivered to the Holy Father have had their effect with the Holy Father. I am most grateful for the results that continue to be seen regarding both. However, sometimes those who advise the Holy Father are specialists at spinning. That’s most unfortunate. They do not serve the Holy Father well.

As the Holy Father has now ordered to be bandied about, there is a mea culpa in the works for the upper echelons. I wonder how that will really work. It seems that the announcement was written by someone quite at the center of things who himself has plenty for which to say mea culpa. If I am correct about who this is (there are certain turns of phrase), well then, as he has done for very many years in cooking the books and being thick as thieves with the worst of the worst abusers of power, he has redirected the crisis to other than what it is, making it seem like a pedophilia crisis instead of a homosexualist bully crisis. So, what I would like to see is the following:

  • Start with in interrogation of all those who have worked in the abuse office in the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith since it started some decades ago, and ask about cooking the books.
  • Continue with decisions of dismissal from the clerical state wrought against priests who have suffered the books being cooked against them, and take a look at the ultimatums those priests were given, such as (1) leave the priesthood or (2) stay in the priesthood but be locked up under the care of those who rape priests in their clinics with plethysmography and porn. This ultimatum was given many times.
  • Close down all “treatment” centers to which bishops send priests which promote self-abuse and homosexualism, then dismiss from the clerical state all priests and bishops who have sent priests to such gateways to hell.
  • Do a full investigation on kickback schemes that give the money of the faithful to risk retention groups which insist on immediate settlements with no attorneys with (cough cough) service fees being given to bishops and chancery officials. Dismiss from the clerical state all priests and bishops who have participated in such racketeer influenced corruption.
  • Dismiss from the clerical state all priests and bishops who have ensured that priests are not named defendants so that they cannot possibly enjoy due process, claiming that their Judas-esque practices are wrought for the good of the Church (pro bono ecclesiae).
  • Dismiss from the clerical state all priests and bishops who have scandalously pushed homosexualist ideologies, smashing down faithful priests and bishops who desire to speak of the beauty of the image of God in one man – one woman marriage and family.

But instead, if it goes the way that a certain person would like it to go (who’s not assigned to Rome as his main occupation by the way) it may be that we will only get an over-generalized non-personalized non-particularized expression of regret blaming people for complaining: “I regret that you stupidly suffered conflicting emotions because of your own stupid immaturity regarding our power.” Something like that. I hope not.

The consequences. Oh, I’m sure that young seminarians, who have nothing to do with any of this rubbish that all went on before they were born, will be blamed for everything: We’re going to be really tough on seminarians, those bad and evil seminarians. Listen, when I was a seminarian way back in the day, there were some bad seminarians, sure, but they were SO OBVIOUS. The problem was the super gay protecting staff, faculty and administration and the bishops who protected them.

The consequences. Oh, I’m sure that priests who have nothing to do with any of this rubbish will be treated like trash. Just like bad cops are hated most by good cops, so the vast majority of priests are upset with the Judas-priests. But all are lumped together so that good priests are punished but, actually, the bad priests slip through. Meanwhile, the Holy See and the bishops are off the hook because of deflecting so well.

The consequences. Abuse of power continues and it only gets much, much worse, so that seminaries are turned into treatment centers where candidates are trained into sin. Truly. This is the direction this has been going for some decades.

Solutions. It’s all about Jesus. Priests and bishops, from the top down, all of them, all of us, have to get to know Jesus. THE ONLY WAY TO GET TO BE FRIENDS WITH JESUS IS TO GO TO CONFESSION. PRIESTS AND BISHOPS MUST GO TO CONFESSION REGULARLY

I would make this a rule in universal law. If priests and bishops do not go to Confession at least a couple of times a month they are to be dismissed from the clerical state. Period. Honestly, that would pretty much bring all B.S. to an end. Jesus would reign among His priests. All would be right with the world.

Adoration, Confession, Peter’s Keys

img_20180930_065154316~23791718072667000370..jpg

Our weekly Sunday morning holy hours 6:00-7:00 AM at Holy Redeemer sometimes have a quiet moment or two, during one of which I took this picture. We have the rosary or a chaplet, lauds, chants. After exposition, to make sure we have some quiet, I stay on my knees before the Blessed Sacrament for the first ten minutes. But after that, I go back to the Confessional. I mean, people kneeling before our Lord makes for a busy confessional. Always so very inspiring, making any priest, even me, happy to be one with Jesus in His priesthood.

I would just like to point out the bit of yellow that you see through the window on the outside of the door. That’s the flag of the Holy See, the Papal Flag. We have to remember, do we not, that the Holy Father, whatever anyone might think about him, whatever Jesus might think about him, still has the power of keys, still delegates such powers with the apostolic mandate of bishops, who still sub-delegate that to the priests.

I make no apologies for being in solidarity with the Bishop of Rome – the most attacked-by-Satan bishop in the world – praying for him. I always mention him during Mass (not all do, you know), and at the end of the intercessions, the bidding prayers. I mean, I have cloistered nuns who pray for my wretched soul. When I complain to them that they are getting me in trouble with all those prayers because Jesus will ask me what I actually did with all those graces, they instantly say that such trouble with Jesus is alright since – “Look at it this way” they say – just think of where you would have been if we weren’t praying for you at all. Oh my.

Viganò’s extra-judicial trial of Francis. Ending abuse of power with the same?

pope francis cardinal mccarrick

Archbishop Viganò has published a second letter. LifeSite has a PDF, Scio cui credidi. In it, he describes the dynamic of what is going on:

“The pope’s unwillingness to respond to my charges and his deafness to the appeals by the faithful for accountability are hardly consistent with his calls for transparency and bridge building.”

Sure. That’s right. Almost 100%. But there’s one little bit that’s wrong in which one forgets the old maxim:

  • Bonum ex integra causa (It’s good if it’s all good).
  • Malum ex quocumque defectu (It’s bad if there is any defect whatsoever).

The presentation of Archbishop Viganò is almost 100%, but doesn’t quite make it all the way. So, what do we actually have here?

This is actually a final judgment rendered in an extra-judicial trial conducted by Archbishop Viganò over against the one who is called the Supreme Pontiff for a reason. The Bishop of Rome cannot legitimately be tried in an ecclesiastical court with or without the trappings of ecclesiastical fanfare, by Council or not. Saying something, whatever, and then demanding an answer is no way to go about things with the Pope. Making an accusation and being met by silence doesn’t always mean that one consents, the old Qui tacet, tacet consentire (the one who keeps silence, keeps silence in order to consent).

If one puts this kind of pressure on the Holy Father, there is all of a sudden something much bigger at play. It is a utilitarian usage of abuse (an insult to real victims) in order to bring about another agenda, the downfall not of a particular bishop of Rome, but the downfall of the papacy itself, the downfall of the Catholic Church. It’s all about power. It always is. Abuse of power is always ugly. It’s the old taunting “Nyeah nyeah nyeah nyeah nyeah.” That’s NOT to say that there isn’t something to the charges. It’s the way of bringing items to the Holy Father that really does count.

Long time readers will know that I myself brought a couple of matters to the attention of the Holy Father quietly, without publicizing what those two matters were other than to say that one deals with the Holy See and the other with the McCarrick affair. There was a response, an awesome response, as I have reported. Anyway…

Fighting abuse of power with the abuse of power is no way to end the abuse of power. In doing exorcisms, one might notice that Satan is especially good at mind games in getting people to abuse power. That’s what he does.

“But it’s all about the children!” splutter the self-righteous abuse of power mongers. No, it’s not about the children, except to make a utilitarian usage of them, again. That’s offensive. There are other ways.

I’ll make you a bet:

  • I’m not a betting man, but I bet you that McCarrick will be dismissed from the clerical state in the not-too-distant future. The winner and loser of this bet have to say a Hail Mary for McCarrick and another for Pope Francis and another for the Church. Either way, do it.

Don’t get me wrong: 

I’m all for helping the Holy Father discern all that which is good and holy. I’ve done that with Benedict XVI. I’ve done that with Francis. Let me slightly edit Saint Paul’s words to the Ephesians (3:14-21), replacing “you” with “the Pope” so as to let you know my wishes for Pope Francis:

“I kneel before the Father, from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named, that he may grant [the Pope] in accord with the riches of his glory to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in the inner self, and that Christ may dwell in [the Pope’s] heart[-] through faith; that [the Pope], rooted and grounded in love, may have strength to comprehend with all the holy ones what is the breadth and length and height and depth, and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, so that [the Pope] may be filled with all the fullness of God. Now to him who is able to accomplish far more than all we ask or imagine, by the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations, forever and ever. Amen.”

  • What Saint Paul is talking about cuts through any mind games, any politics.
  • What Saint Paul is talking about is enough to bring any Pope to confirm his brothers in the faith.

What surprises me…

What surprises me is the almost non-existent theology regarding the papacy even by those who claim to be theologians, and orthodox to boot. Almost no one knows what Infallibility is about, what it’s consequences are. The extra-judicial judgment thing is just one more sign of ignorance as to what being the Bishop of Rome is all about.

Update: Packages given to Pope Francis – Most Holy Father: Thank you!

pope francis evangelii gaudium

Package One: Concerning that which goes to the very heart of the McCarrick fiasco the entire dire situation brought to the Holy Father as presented by this package was for himself utterly reversed and put in good order. That’s most stunning in itself, that in which one can rejoice for the good of the priesthood, for the good of the Church. The one involved was burdened with the weight of the universe and that weight has been lifted. But there’s more. The Holy Father caused this to be brought about by those involved with a manner that truly restorative, wrought with a profound ecclesial sense, majestic, really, with apologies, and bringing a sense of the presence of the angels and of our Lord Himself. The blessed Immaculate Virgin was also mentioned. Devout. Pious. Humble. A motive for joy. Thank you, Holy Father, for making this come about. Awesome.

Package Two: This may have instigated an investigation in a most unexpected place with the most unexpected persons. If so, this may have blown out of the water and merely temporarily nixed any more generalized Apostolic Visitation to these United States so as to examine the actions or benign neglect of any bishops across the board. Temporarily.

Apologies: If I was a little bold in putting this before the Holy Father accompanied by a request that was unexpectedly unnecessary – mea culpa – then, in that case of being little too bold, mi pento e mi dolgo con tutto il cuore. However, it might be noticed that the weeks clicked by without me doing anything else whatsoever, just waiting on the Holy Father to do His thing. And he did.

An extra bit in which to rejoice: As some things played out, a particular name of a particular Archbishop, one with whom I am presently involved in certain matters (not a diplomat) came to the fore in a most significant way. Very impressive, very heartening. Awesome.

As I might have said before on this blog, also in regard to the Holy Father:

Nothing is as it seems!

Conquering today’s demonic abuse of power with hellfire? Yep!

Today’s crisis is all about abuse of power. In our fallen state and without grace we think free will is power over God Himself. We can in fact choose to destroy the image of God: male and female God created them, in the image of God God created them. Male and female was rejected for sex without procreation, making sex about pieces of meat only, so why not same-sex sex? And why not smash down youngsters just when they are able to procreate so as to pervert them into a lust after the power to think one can trounce God by destroying the image of God as male and female? Today’s crisis. It’s about abuse of power. It’s about arrogance challenging God Himself.

People see this abuse of power as hell fire setting people ablaze with demonic machinations of mind games about what is to be bullied into being acceptable and tolerated until it is celebrated. And so it is.

And people fight this often on the same level, lowering themselves to the demonic mind games of bullying, just trying to be louder and more obnoxious. But that gets no one anywhere except perhaps hell. Let’s take a 24 second caricature of a caricature of the burning fires of hell:

As was mentioned on this blog a couple years back, sometimes people think that the fires of hell mean real fire (only), because they are afraid of WHO that fire actually is, namely, God, that is, God’s love. Yes, in hell. It’s not universal salvationistic-esque to say that God loves all regardless of whether or not they love Him, regardless of whether they are in heaven or in hell or here upon this earth for that matter. The difference involves the reception of that love or not:

  • Those in heaven rejoice in this ardent fiery love.
  • Those on earth who follow Jesus are purified by this fiery love.
  • Those in purgatory are purged by this fiery love.
  • Those on earth who reject Jesus are thrown into agonizing frustration by this fiery love.
  • Those in hell, upon whom God’s love shines, scream in the agony that this love brings to them – “IT BURNS!” – for they want nothing to do with such love; their intellectual burning frustration sets their souls on fire. They perceive this love as hatred because that’s what they are all about. They hate themselves, others, God.

Irony is scary, isn’t it? But we are to fight hell fire with hell fire because hell fire is actually the love of God. If we one with God’s love we can see that the scariest thing – hell fire – is not scary at all if we are one with God’s love. That means we can take on the entire onslaught of hell while in our weak state in this world, because it’s not our strength on which we depend: it’s all about Jesus. He’s the One. He’s the only One.

We can and must rejoice in irony, all the more if it is scary, as we know that it is then bearing such magnificence of truth in love.

But maybe I’m “evil”. Hilaire Belloc might say so. Perhaps we should all be so “evil”, just as Jesus was on the cross, bearing as He did the very reflection of the evil from which He was redeeming us, saving us. So majestic. I can’t help but put it up again:

hilaire bellocTo 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).]

Pope Francis and calls for abdication. Are Non-Yes-Men demonic heretics?

pope francis asperges

Those who would attempt to force Pope Francis to abdicate as Bishop of Rome and therefore relinquish the Papacy – say by the act of an ecumenical council (which would not be legitimately called anyway) demonstrate their lack of faith, and perhaps even their being demon possessed. Such a robber council of theirs would, of course, attempt to be polite and nice and claim that they are granting the Holy Father due process, when, instead, the Supreme Pontiff cannot legitimately be subjected to any such process. The process itself would demonstrate the lack of faith of those who put it in place, and who thus grant themselves more authority than the Pope. In short, those who want tribunal style due process for the Pope are heretics. Two things that necessarily go together so that the point can be made:

  • The Pope is not to be submitted to any tribunal style process.
  • He is not to be forcibly removed.

That’s not to say that those who bring charges against the Pope, that is, to him, shouldn’t bring all the proofs of what they say. This can be done with charity. And if they should suggest to the Holy Father that he abdicate, that is not to say that they are lacking in faith or charity. What they do is a far cry from what they do who would plot to force the Successor of Peter from his being the Bishop of Rome. There’s a difference.

If Pope Francis were to ask me what I thought about all of this (That’s not going to happen!), I would say this to him:

“Most Holy Father, distress has come upon the Church and the world because of ambiguous, contradictory, unclear, misleading utterances from you, some of your advisers, from some in the Roman Curia, from some Cardinals and Bishops around the world. Just because a matter of faith and morality is settled dogmatically, and just because you haven’t attempted to use the gift of infallibility to go against matters of faith and morality that have been settled dogmatically doesn’t mean that you have God’s blessing not to confirm your brothers in the faith in an integral, consistent, clear manner, thus rightly leading the Church and the world to Jesus, to the Living Truth who is Charity, our Way, our Life, our joy in the Holy Spirit.”

And then, should he see the point, accept that, repent of all the ambiguity, etc., but feel that he is not up to the task of being clear, of confirming his brothers in the faith, then, in that case, I would suggest to him that he should resign.

That’s the way I see things. I think I can defend that with Saint Thomas’ teaching on fraternal correction. Tell me where I’m wrong. Pretty much everyone is hailing me to be a fringe traditionalist heretic on all this, demonic even. But I don’t see it. Explain why I should be exorcised.

Ringwraith stabbing: my trip to Rome. Hilaire Belloc “On Irony” ;-)

Image result for ringwraith stabbing

Did you ever see the Lord of the Rings? Do you remember when Frodo Baggins was stabbed by the poisonous sword of the Ringwraith?

frodo ringwraith

It wasn’t those to whom I spoke. It wasn’t those about whom I was speaking. The “Ringwraith” in this case was the political atmosphere storming about Vatican hill. Get near that in any serious way as I did when I went up into the Apostolic Palace the other week to deliver some packages going to the heart of the current crisis and you’ll get stabbed by that Ringwraithness. Again, this doesn’t at all refer to those to whom I spoke or about the packages so delivered.

Getting stabbed doesn’t necessitate becoming a Ringwraith. It just means that you have to struggle a bit. I’m sure we all have an experience like that of Frodo. And we all have “Elvish medicine” by which to conquer.

I’d like to think of that medicine as giving a flower to the Immaculate Conception. After all, she saw her own Son get crushed by Satan and all the powers of hell and saw Him risen from the dead.

To put it another way: When Jesus lays down His life, it is in that very action that He also lays down our lives with His, we being members of the Body of Christ, we being children of Jesus’ good mom, you know, like the Master so the disciple. That’s for all of us.

But that is a burden to carry in this world. I don’t know how those on the straight and narrow in the Vatican can survive. It’s all God’s grace. They carry an enormous burden. They are getting stabbed by Ringwraithness on a continuous basis, 24/7/365. For them: Hail Mary…

But there is more. There is irony. It is so fierce that people can scream running away. Don’t run. Don’t be afraid. Perhaps a re-read of some irony will help:

hilaire bellocTo 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.

093018_5day_cone_no_line_and_wind3329229798193229496.png

The 2:00 AM Monday marked with a black-circled “D” for a Tropical Cyclone having winds of less than 39 miles per hour is right over the parish in Andrews, NC. There is a threat of some flooding, though not at any of our church campuses or the rectory. There is no threat from the wind.

However, the weird thing with lots of rain and even no wind is that trees simply fall down. The root system cannot grab anything steadfast. The mountain cliffs against which the roads are forged are the super weak shale. As the trees fall in their dozens, roads are blocked throughout the mountains, and, of course, power lines are snapped in half.

What’s different about this storm is that FEMA has decided to pre-position crews to either side of Wilmington NC, so that they can get to work right away. I gotta wonder how well that will work, since the flooding is the real problem in south-eastern NC. The waters build up and recede over something like six weeks. For the first couple of weeks, if I remember rightly, the water can be so high that emergency vehicles simply can’t move. Anyway, all our emergency utility crews are moving down to the coast.

Some close friends live in Wilmington, but they have moved away from the worst areas for the next days or weeks, depending. They helped me with some communication logistics so that I could put together a certain dossier, one of the two packages to bring over to the Holy Father the other week. I’m thinking that the two packages I delivered to him backed him into a corner and lit a bit of a fire under him. I don’t mean to put pressure on him. After all I did deliver it to him, not to some newspaper or some blog.

Popes and anti-Popes

Richard Bonomo sent in a question:

Reading one of your recent blog posts on the the Pope (Kryptic call for assassinating the Pope?) this reminds me of the times I’ve said similar things: if a sitting Pope was on the verge of formally declaring something that is not true, to BE true, God would intervene — one way or the other — to prevent this from happening, including, possibly, killing the man (heart attack, collapsing ceilings, meteor, etc.).

However, the case of a potential anti-pope is different. I am no expert on Church history, but I do seem to recall that there have been times when there were multiple claimants to the See of Peter, and that men of good will were to be found lined up behind all of them, believing the one they supported was in fact the Pope, and the other(s) was(were) not

There is no shortage of people who claim that “Pope Francis” is an anti-Pope, and that either Pope Emeritus Benedict continues to reign as Pope, or the See is vacant. I am fairly sure you have read all of the variations of this, so I will not waste your time summarizing them.

Most of this smells like wishful thinking to me. I assume that “Pope Francis” really is Pope Francis, and that Pope Benedict meant what he wrote in his letter of resignation, and that he is treating his retirement in a manner appropriate to an academic such as himself, retaining some of the trappings of being a professor (Pope) without actually BEING a professor (Pope).

However, I DO find myself wondering if a man accepts an office validly who accepts that office with the intention of sabotage.

If your theory that Pope Francis has been (if I understand correctly) putting on an act with the intention of baiting people with the plan of doing a long-overdue house cleaning once malefactors and the confused are out in the open, then this is, of course, not a concern.

However, what if your theory is wrong?

Well, if Pope Francis is a dupe of a cabal of immoral men who wear the robes of cardinals who seek to take over the Church for their own purposes, or to impose a moral regimen that is not of God, then, assuming the election was otherwise conducted properly, I imagine he would still be Pope, that is assuming that his intentions were, in fact, to fulfill the office as it is supposed to be fulfilled.

On the other hand, if Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio was a willing member of that cabal, and he accepted his election to the papacy for the occult purpose of enacting an agenda which is perverse, then did he accept office validly? Is he Pope Francis, or “Pope Francis” in such a case?
I, for one, do not know how to work this out, nor do I know whom to ask who could give a definitive opinion. Of course, if this last possibility turns out to be true, I really have no idea what I could do, except to pray and be aware.

In any case, our personal holiness, and the sacrificial and sacramental life of the Church must be maintained and not neglected while these matters are sorted out.

============

Answer: Benedict XVI is surely after all this time to be held to be willingly NOT the bishop of Rome, therefore not Pope. That’s why Francis rightly called himself Bishop of Rome. Everyone thought he was demeaning the papacy, but only because they are heretics about the papacy.

Even if one is malicious in accepting the election, it is valid. It’s not ordination. Infallibility is not something positive. It will get you dead right quick if you intend to do something supremely wrong.

Parish and priest friends Status: Jesus is the Priest; He’s the One, the only One.

img_20180902_064649388~26640832127153422283..jpg

For being the tiniest parish in North America, our 6:00 AM Holy Hour of Reparation is doing very well, thank you. Also, Masses these last couple of weeks were very well attended. Also, lots of Confessions! Also, lots of invites for meals and lots of offers of specially prepared treats, like home-made “turtles” (chocolate, caramel, etc.). Moreover, the priests in the area are doubling down on invites to the priests to come to their parish next for a good priest prepared meal for some good priestly fraternity. All good.

Meanwhile, I hear of yet more rubbish even by the hour from across the pond.

Putting those two things together, do you know what this tells me? This tells me that Jesus is the Priest; He’s the One; He’s the only One, and He is very much active in His parishes and in His (arch)dioceses. Vatican City – The Holy See should pay attention.

IOR Vatican Bank: extortion of a crisis

In this video, Dr Marshall provides a very helpful timeline of events.

What is said in this video is entirely consistent with what was known of the situation. Things have developed of course in the years of Pope Francis’ pontificate. People have taken it upon themselves to manipulate things. This aspect of the crisis is an important key to understanding unintelligible actions from on high.

Extortion is not impossible. Consider that the Holy See and Vatican City State are two entities. If descriptions of the same and laws regarding the same, both internally and internationally, were to be conflated one with the other, what kind of extortion might that permit?

Again, this is a homosexualist crisis. Considering the players behind the scenes, some of whom who have not yet been named, I’m guessing that the idea is to use this as a method of extortion to change the teaching of the Church regarding homosexuality. We have already seen proposed changes. Settlements for “pedophilia” cases, and eventual litigation with much longer tentacles, are merely leverage to push for a change in the teaching of the Church.

Just my opinion. But when you see who is as thick as thieves with who, and with what connections, and the power they have even over the Holy Father, I would say that my opinion is well founded, enough to try to break things open. Oh, I forgot! I’m on my way to Rome today to try to do just that.

Murder as suicide: Did Pope Francis get his intervention? So far so good.

joint

I’ve written previously of this relatively recent incident – a conversation at a meal at a private house with many military officers and others – but I refrained from mentioning the involvement, so to speak, of Pope Francis in that conversation. Perhaps I should be more fulsome in these hectic, confusing, dark times. Here’s more detail about that evening with some of the top of our intelligence community. I think it’s safe to say all this now, two full months later. If it had anything to do with Pope Francis in the first place, whatever was happening with the murder as “suicide” thing is a danger which is surely now passed, I guess, maybe. But one should keep up with situational awareness, including those around Pope Francis. After all, there are those who wish harm upon the Holy Father, who do not hesitate to use extortion. Have we forgotten this scene with Mehmet Ali Agca?

fatima pope john paul assassination

I should emphasize that this was a strange evening. In walking into the house… well… it took like 40 minutes to get beyond the entrance as a discussion on what happens at GTMO was so intense, but I digress. Back to the mid-meal bit about Pope Francis:


Intel officer lady standing up and changing the topic: “Hey Father Byers: Pope Francis… Is his papacy viable? Is he worth it?” [This question about “it”, that is, making an intervention on his behalf, was clearly the point of this encounter with some twenty people, many who are in counterintelligence, counterterrorism and are at the top of their game. Everything went silent at this question and some of the main players were able to catch my eyes while they pointed at her, at her question, nodding their heads so as to say: This is it, the reason for this whole evening: Pay attention to the question. For that moment you could hear a pin drop. One stated the importance of the question to the immediate agreement of the others. The question about Pope Francis being “worth it” refers to… what? Since this crowd was making a big deal out of their knowing about every terrorist plot there is as a preface to this question, what am I supposed to think? It’s only a guess, but it is probable that they were taking seriously one of the many thousands of terrorist murmurings that are always being mumbled round about against the Vatican and the Holy Father, both “chatter” and direct threats. It’s only a guess, but it seems a question was posed higher up as to whether making an intervention on behalf of Pope Francis would be in the interests of these United States. Pope Francis, mind you, states that President Trump is not a Christian. Pope Francis, mind you, can offer Mass on the South side of the border fence. Pope Francis, mind you, doesn’t hesitate for a second to interfere in political / economic controversy. On and on. So, Pope Francis being “worth it” is a question. Indeed, I have to think that even the details of methodology were discovered, as we will see below, the whole murder as “suicide” thing.]

Father Byers to all present (paraphrased, as this part of the evening lasted about an hour): “Always, no matter what, any Pope’s security is worth an intervention. Stopping anything untoward against the leader of 1.3 billion people benefits the common good on so many levels and in so many ways. We believe that the papacy is not just some office, stuff to do, but is founded on the person of the successor of Peter himself. To strike at him is to make an attack on the One who has constituted him as Bishop of Rome. But let me tell you why in particular Pope Francis is ‘worth it.'” [A most intense discussion ensues for about an hour. At about the 45 minute mark, this happened…]

A senior GTMO interrogator knowing just about every terrorist plot and clearly with an ax to grind intel officer to me, shaking his head in rejection of my arguments: “Pffft!”

Father Byers baiting the same Senior GTMO interrogator: “Hey! You would know a best friend of mine who lives not quite around here, but, you know, right in this region. He would get permissions exclusively from the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs – not the Chiefs – but only from the Chairman. He’s the one who would deliver detainees from black site to black site all around the world. We’ll call him a logistics guy. You would have met him many times. He would know you well.” [Since this conversation I’ve come to know yet another deliverer of detainees, logistics guy, who has been to GTMO many times. Interesting. It seems I’m getting to know all of them.]

Senior interrogator at GTMO: [He didn’t respond other than with two unmistakable tell-tale body language signs]:

  • Momentary fear in the eyes; he knows he can now be exposed, either as outright verified or as using the GTMO thing as a cover. I do have friends, one being frantic to say it is impossible to verify such things. But that’s irrelevant as, either way, the fear of this guy at the meal reveals the veracity of something serious going down.
  • Simultaneous to the fear in the eyes thing, he suffered a slight, bodily caving-in of the chest, accompanied with a slight shrinking in his chair, just a centimeter back and down, but visible, fearful, not wanting to believe what he just heard, a flight response of fear. He’s knows he’s just been had, totally. I really shouldn’t do this. Perhaps this is my weakness: being an enfant terrible, as the French say. Sometimes it seems it’s just too easy. Maybe it’s made to be too easy. Yet…

Top counterterrorism, counterintelligence guy to me, obviously the senior officer in this discussion but privately, now at the end of the meal and making our way outside the house: “I think you are right about Pope Francis.” [I was giving an impossibly positive spin on Pope Francis’ actions, trying to demonstrate that he’s worth the effort to save with an intervention. I think he repeated some four times in two minutes as we were walking outside and then again outside that he thinks that I’m right about Pope Francis. So then he says:] “I have an assignment for you.” [“assignment” – he’s baiting to find out if I’m the guy who stole my identity decades ago so as to do “assignments,” or if I’m me. Perhaps he knows I can have a chat with the head of security at the Vatican.] “Pay close attention to what Bill Binney [NSA metadata predictor of critical incidents and then whistle blower] says is the first thing to know about himself, that he would never intentionally commit suicide.” [He repeated that, emphasizing, for the sake of my assignment, that he would never intentionally commit suicide. Mind you, Bill Binney had not been mentioned that entire evening. That’s the first time I had ever heard of him. I’m guessing that all this murder as “suicide” thing refers instead to Pope Francis, since, as I say, in the midst of all this, this guy keeps repeating that he thinks I’m right about Pope Francis. I’m connecting the dots here, and I know I’m only guessing, but it seems that there was enough metadata to predict an op over against Pope Francis, one that would involve murder made to look as suicide. How devastating would that be for the Church and the world? The darkness and despair would be hard to imagine.]

chess board robert van der steeg impossible world

To be even more fulsome, I should also include here that other chess pieces also came up in the evening’s conversation, including the demise of Miriam Waldu, the “Front of House” for Pope Francis who was murdered a couple years ago in the midst of the gay-marriage referendum of Italy. She was a shot over the bow. Extortion. Strange that her case was jacked up to a full blown murder investigation almost immediately and then absolutely nothing has been said of her since then. Nothing. As I’ve said previously, I think she was the one the FBI had been bragging to me about, a girl from ultra dirt poor Eritrea snatched up by our intel when it was happenstance noticed that she was the best in the world for instantaneous face recognition, able to recite the relevant biography for any of many thousands of pictures shown to her quickly only once, perfect, then, for “Front of House” for the leader of 1.3 billion people.

Another similar person in the employ of the Holy See came up as well. That guy seemed to have plenty of malice about him, and so I unmasked him. Sorry. I’m the King’s good servant but God’s first. You know the drill. That part of the discussion during the meal was all about his “demise” by way of what I still hold to have been a surely reversible cardiac incident. He was an Italian CIA asset working in the CDF. His identity and intelligence connection was confirmed for me not only by his American trainer – a close CIA friend – but by the head of intel / security at the Vatican).

I can’t imagine what kind of extortion Pope Francis is under, but that’s a story for later.

Kryptic call for assassinating the Pope?

pope-francis

I’m just going over some drafts I wrote some weeks ago. I thinks it’s time to publish some of them. I think it’s important to emphasize that the most malicious heresy against papal infallibility is the one which has it that the papacy as such is merely an office and is not identified with the very person of the successor of Peter, the Bishop of Rome. To divide the two is to sunder the Holy Father as effectively as any method of assassination could take him out. That’s not to say that everything he says is infallible. It is to say that when he speaks as the Bishop of Rome, the Successor of Peter, to the universal Church, on a matter of faith and morals, especially in deciding a controversy, that is, when he solemnly pronounces on such a matter in such a way with such a quality, and not merely as a dialogue, it is then that his own person is also on the line. Just to be clear:

Jesus spoke of the name of Peter, the Rock, indeed, about himself, personally, upon whom Jesus founds His Church. The papacy is not a mere office, stuff to do, replaceable by a committee, or even a Council without a Pope. It papacy is one with the person of the Pontiff.

The papacy, and the promise of infallibility, has a very direct and immediate effect on the person of Supreme Pontiff himself. If the individual Bishop of Rome, Francis or John or Paul or Benedict by name, whatever, is to fail in infallibility, he is to fail in his own person. Failing with infallibility is not an option (something somehow not understood as self-evident by pundits, lefties and righties alike). The viability of infallibility and the viability of the very person of the Pope have everything to do with each other. Let’s just say it: The Successor of Peter, the Bishop of Rome will die or be utterly incapacitated before he can fail in infallibility. That’s how it works. The physical person of the Successor of Peter is expendable, utterly. Jesus’ guarantee of being with the Church until He returns is at the expense of the Bishop of Rome.

People hate this because they are so soft, so unwilling to admit that Jesus would establish a situation in which, not truth, but one of us is expendable. The identification of the Rock with Peter, of the Keys with Peter’s decision, demands that Peter be incapacitated in whatever manner before he pronounces and declares that which is against the faith and morality, for, as it is, the truth is already and irrevocably established since forever in the heavens. In other words, God will permit or provide such incapacitation or death. No one else is to do this, no gnostic individual, no group of ecclesiastics no matter how exalted they are in their own minds. Tender snowflakes that we are, this absolutely infuriates us and we crucify the Truth by saying that the Pope can change doctrine or, you know, make a mistake which would invalidate his office. This is insipid stupidity.

When people then go the extra step, saying that any one person or any such exalted group could go ahead and eliminate the Supreme Pontiff by a decree declaring him to be an anti-Pope, they insist this can be done if there is a physical, tangible sign, you know, so they can (falsely) claim that they are not gnostics. In that case, the real Pope would be the wrongly declared to be “anti-Pope,” you know, because the gnostic know it alls said so, those who in their own minds are infallible and speak for the Holy Spirit. How ironic. In another time these same people, so right in their own minds, might well have been burned at the stake as heretics. But we are soft today.

Now, what is that sign to be anyway, that someone kills the Pope? That’s about the only thing it could be. Are these pundits calling for the assassination of the Pope, giving some self appointed assassin the divine mandate to act on God’s behalf, providing the sign God surely wants to give? Yes. In my opinion, they are doing just that. Heresy is just that mean, just that ludicrous, just that callous, just that vicious, just that demonic, you know, because of being tender snowflakes who are self-justified in crucifying the disciple like the Master. Read the end of Romans chapter one, say, from verse 1:18 to the end.

I’ll tell you this, Jesus, who established Peter as the Rock, will come to judge the living and the dead and the world by fire. Amen.

Just after I bought my ticket for Rome: “Fortis fortuna adiuvat.” No! Angels!

DOJ

After my passport numbers went up on line from my favorite travel agency, these hits about my itinerary overseas above were then followed by the same from the FBI’s national research center near Fairmont / Clarksburg WV (CJIS), the largest institution of the agency for centralized info on criminal justice. This is something new, as I’ve learned to expect just a visit from the George Bush Center for Intelligence with a server named so as to be seen. Courteous. I can feel the love! But what changed so as to occasion CJIS?

FBI-Atlanta was kind enough to let me know the other week that I’m involved with the DARPA – COMPASS program. That may have replaced my original decades old perpetual interdepartmental cannot-be-unmasked-for-more-details program of tracking that Main State and later the FBI described to me with a letter and then an alternative identity (effectively a third!) without me asking for it. The COMPASS program carries a certain risk. A target of COMPASS, i.e., a person of interest, can be such because of being at risk or as constituting a risk. Since I’ve always been treated extraordinarily well, I’m guessing I’m in the at risk category, and COMPASS, as DARPA’s new toy, is the now by far the most effective mathematical analysis prediction “machine” (if you will) concerning individuals somehow in the midst of gray zone activities. It’s much easier to just throw me in the mix and forget about it along with the now small multitude of ambiguous characters. That’s what COMPASS is for: easing the burden of work, doing more with less.

In that case, I’m guessing that the tracking promised by Main State in the early 1990s has been delegated to the usual CAPPS systems which continuously updates passenger name records (PNR) for everyone on any given flight manifest. If there’s a high enough risk score attached to that PNR, an inquiry is automatically sent along to the TSA of DHS and, when they are frustrated at being locked out as to why there is a high score, they send the inquiry along. It’s imagined that CJIS can come up with a reason for the high risk score, and, pushing a bit more when that’s found to be untrue, the inquiry is simply overruled by Main State and I’m cleared for the flight, all updating in the COMPASS spreadsheets for use in their surely infallible algorithms. ;-)

So, it’s highly doubtful that there will be a pesky no-fly list notification while, ticket in hand, I attempt to get a gate and confirmed seat assignment at Hartsfield-Jackson international terminal. After all, I’m forever “accompanied”, to use Pope Francis’ terminology, on flights since as long as I can remember, back into the 1980s. I’ve never been on any SSSS or TSDB lists as far as I know, though in 1990 and then again in 2009 some entirely expected fun was to be had at Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion. Smiling chutzpah always wins the day.

The last time I went through the TSA shake down in Atlanta the agents instead stepped waaaay back and let me and my carry-on stuff pass totally unchecked despite plenty of metal in the carry-on stuff and literally many pounds of surgical metal holding my leg together. When I protested their lack of concern about the carry-on stuff and all the metal I had on me they instead said that it didn’t matter, and that I could go through, that I’m good, because their checking me didn’t matter. That just left me bewildered. Less checking than for the pilot, the only other guy in line. It’s not like they were busy…

My seating is always switched out at the last second so as to place me with diplomats (with their usual retinue) or with various branches of the military or with Federal Air Marshals or of other reps of institutes and agencies, always. Or maybe these are the only people who fly these days. One memory in particular regards a most polite and well mannered diplomat who enlisted my help to get safely to the Excelsior in Rome, a kind of beyond the star system hotel next to the U.S. Embassy, reminiscent of the “Continental” of John Wick fame. Goodness!

My usual unusual accompaniment during the flight should be more interesting than the usual interestingness.

Some would wish good luck, good fortune. No. Life has nothing to do with such imagined things as hoped by the creators of the all-power-encompassing COMPASS program, which, ironically, is based entirely on chance, luck, the demon goddess “Fortuna.” What a living hell that is…

Instead, everything has come together seemingly miraculously, in the Providence of our Lord, with the ministrations of the angels, to ensure that what needs to be done is accomplished. But after that, it seems to me, I’ll be quite on my own. But that’s O.K. That’s also according to the will of the Lord. And I’m happy with that.

Delivering packages to His Holiness

A lady in the parish who raises Czech King Shepherds for law enforcement and other spectacular uses got an interestingly colored but full cross on the back Palestinian donkey the other day and sent me this video of some loud braying. Donkeys are like this. When they bray, it’s very loud indeed.

This donkey, yours truly, is not getting ready to bray. Instead, I am today getting ready to be a beast of burden who will carry the melodies of others across the pond, all the way to somewhere, say, depending, oh, between 125 and 350 meters from the obelisk in front of Saint Peter’s Basilica over in Rome. Strange way to measure distance. Anyway, I’m talking about two packages of whistle blowers, victims of one kind or another.

  • The first necessitates a crossing of international borders this morning just to deliver the package thus far. The legal expertise that has gone into this package is unparalleled for a number of reasons, including an eye witness account of the malice of vicious, ruthless homosexualist politicking from the those in particular positions. This goes to the very heart of what is known thus far, and far beyond. This would be enough for Pope Francis to do what I hope he has been baiting all along and will now proceed to the lopping off of some heads. It’s all way too much, and has been so since the beginning. I’m hoping that his delay has been caused by the unending addition of names being continuously added to the decapitation list. But now, perhaps this very package will convince him that this exercise in baiting has run its course, and that now is the time to act. If not…. just… wow…
  • The second package is enough, all on it’s own, to solidify testimony given by Archbishop Viganò. If this were the only evidence, it would prove Viganò’s case. The best legal mind on the planet (no exaggeration) has his eye on the language used in this particular package. God bless this victim, whose credibility and good standing has been proven by the Pope’s own authorities. :-) This is a case of the suffering of a poor man, who, being the stomped on underdog cast into the darkest of existential peripheries, should catch the notice of Pope Francis, and his compassion, such that, again, he will ascertain that enough is enough, and now is the time to act.

By the way, just to say, none of this has to do with “the children.” It never did. There is much more going on. All the best analysts I know (in the background, but at the heart of things) come to the same conclusion from premises of facts that we have come to know from first hand sources. We can all list a number of interconnected end-of-the-world type extortions being put before Pope Francis. This is why I have always asked your prayers for him. That I am making these deliveries (please God!) is also a result, I am quite sure, of your good prayers.

I recall the last time I tried to do something about this myself. It was the time when I was being tossed quite literally into a dumpster. As I was told, repeatedly, as a reprimand, it was a certain someone in Rome who wanted my demise. I laugh, as I am content with any circumstances in this life. I have my eyes lifted to the heavens. That‘s what’s important. Jesus is the One. Jesus is the only One.
