Let’s list just a few of the things with which I am certainly discordant with the powers that be:
You have heard that it was said that the Ancient Rite of Mass, the TLM, is not valid as the Lex orandi, the law of praying, Jesus’ Sacrifice, and therefore is not valid as a source of Lex credendi, the law of believing, and is therefore simply hurtful rubbish which must be trashed, obliterated from the face of the earth.
But I say to you that anyone who knowingly and wittingly and willfully and freely holds that to be true is a blasphemer, a heretic, an apostate, an excommunicate.
You have heard that it was said that idol worship, say, of murderous demon Pachamama, is just some nice weaving of dialogue and that we have to incorporate demon worship into the Sacrifice of the Mass, the Novus Ordo.
But I say to you that anyone who worships a demon idol will become like that demon idol. See Psalm 115: 4-8 — “Their idols are merely things of silver and gold, shaped by human hands. They have mouths but cannot speak, and eyes but cannot see. They have ears but cannot hear, and noses but cannot smell. They have hands but cannot feel, and feet but cannot walk, and throats but cannot make a sound. And those who make idols are just like them, as are all who trust in them.”
You have heard that it was said that those who do not repent, those who fully intend to sin again, say by way of adultery, are to receive the absolution that they do not want, that they are rejecting.
But I say to you that we must recognize the moral capacity of people and power of God’s grace and then say with Jesus, having brought someone to repentance: “Go and do not sin again.” To say that all, for instance, Latinos, have no moral capacity and so must be merely accompanied in their sin is racist and an insult to Jesus.
You have heard that it was said that same-sex marriage is not to be sanctioned, but that same-sex civilly sanctioned unions are good.
But I say to you that this destroys the image of God, which is one male, one female, marriage and family life. Any same-sex whatever is an attack on the image of God.
You have heard that it was said that the pro-abortion “vaccines” are necessary in charity, to protect others.
But I say to you that the murder of children in the womb for the research and/or development and/or testing of these “vaccines” is not protecting others, but murdering others. Also, it makes those getting the “vaccine” (as with all vaccines) into super spreaders who maybe get sick less themselves or maybe die less. Murder for hire, for self-benefit, is never good, never charity, and will make you risk going to hell forever.
/// There are thousands of things which I cannot tolerate in conscience for myself, which I cannot teach others to do, regardless if it is a guy named Bergoglio or ________________ (fill in the blank) who is pushing whatever idiocy. I don’t care what abuse of authority attempts to coerce me to commit sin. I’m not going to do it.
Do you want to take me out of active ministry, also hurting Jesus’ Little Flock? I feel badly for Jesus’ Little Flock, but for me, what is that punishment compared to going to heaven for eternity for having done the right thing without compromise, standing with Jesus in His trials?
Do you want to suspend me a divinis, from offering the Sacraments and from preaching, also hurting Jesus’ Little Flock? I feel badly for Jesus’ Little Flock, but for me, what is that punishment compared to going to heaven for eternity for having done the right thing without compromise, standing with Jesus in His trials?
Do you want to excommunicate me, also hurting Jesus’ Little Flock? I feel badly for Jesus’ Little Flock, but for me, what is that punishment compared to going to heaven for eternity for having done the right thing without compromise, standing with Jesus in His trials?
Do you want to burn me to death at the stake, thus also hurting Jesus’ Little Flock? I feel badly for Jesus’ Little Flock, but for me, what is that punishment compared to going to heaven for eternity for having done the right thing without compromise, standing with Jesus in His trials?
Seriously, I would rather stand by Jesus in His Trials. I say that with hope that, even if I am as weak as Peter, or worse, Jesus will not abandon me:
Luke 22:28-34 “You are those who have stood by me in my trials. And I confer on you a kingdom, just as my Father conferred one on me, so that you may eat and drink at my table in my kingdom and sit on thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. “Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift all of you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers.” But he replied, “Lord, I am ready to go with you to prison and to death.” Jesus answered, “I tell you, Peter, before the rooster crows today, you will deny three times that you know me.”
[[[ This is a guest post of Aussie mum. We all owe her a debt of gratitude. Hail Mary… ]]]
Our Lady of Guadalupe, “Ahh… a close up of her face”.
Yes, the gentle face and compassionate gaze of a true mother looking upon her children, her Immaculate Heart the complete opposite of the malicious heart of Pachamama. It therefore startled me when I discovered that the month of August dedicated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary is also dedicated to her antithesis.
The Mother Earth fertility goddess, a demonic construct mocking our Blessed Mother, has been given various names in different parts of the world. She (Mother Earth) is best known in Latin America as “Pachamama” (translation: “World Mother”) in the Quechua language of the Inca, and “Tonantzin” (translation: “Our Mother”) in the Nahuatl language of the Aztecs, and is associated with the Sun-god with whom she supposedly brings forth and maintains creation.
In addition to the dedication of the whole of August to Pachamama in lands once hers and now seemingly hers again, her son and husband, the Sun-god Inti, has also returned to the region. He features on the current coat of arms of Argentina, Bolivia and Ecuador, and on the current national flag and state ensign of Argentina (see link below) and Uruguay; he also appears on the traditional, but not current, flag of Peru.
We are told in the 3rd article linked to above (sciencemag) that recent archaeological discoveries in Mexico are “testimony to an industry of human sacrifice (on a scale) unlike any other in the world”. Surely today’s abortion industry is “an industry of human sacrifice”, and given its slaughter of 40,000,000 to 50,000,000 infants globally per year (WHO stats) it functions on a scale greater than that of the Aztecs and Inca combined. Cannibalism also accompanied human sacrifice, at least in the Aztec Empire, and such goes on in our world today as well but now it is aborted baby body parts cannibalised for research and for use in manufacture (e.g. vaccines, face creams).
Clearly, barbarism is not confined to the past. In fact it is a recurring theme throughout history. We are trapped in a fallen world under demonic headship unless we are incorporated into Christ and remain faithful to Him, which explains why human sacrifice and its associated cannibalism disappeared from Latin America after the Catholic religion was introduced there in the 16th century, only to resurface in our modern world in the form of the abortion industry and its spin-offs as adherence to the Catholic religion wanes world-wide.
Because our world is now post-Christian, immersed in the culture of death as was pre-Christian societies, “modern” men and women tend to take a sympathetic approach to the horrific religious practices of the Inca and Aztecs. The following snippets of an extract from Lehigh University re the film “The Other Conquest” is a disturbing example. “… blood was seen as especially pleasing to the gods, especially blood from the heart, … many of the ritualistic practices involved the cutting out of hearts, and almost all of the practices resulted in cannibalism of the victim … This was an important and irreplaceable aspect of the culture … To be chosen as the sacrifice was an honor and a type of heroism … Carrasco’s subtle references to the Sun God and the Mother Goddess, as well as the dramatic ritualistic sacrifice scene, seem less abrupt and confusing when a viewer can understand them within the organizational framework of a well organized and methodical ancient religious tradition. The Aztecs were not the hateful barbaric cannibals a top-level knowledge of their religion can paint them as. Rather, they were an organized group who committed some unorthodox practices based on their highly revered religious traditions.”
It therefore comes as no surprise that modern man, wishing to defend the indefensible, also portrays the overthrow of the Aztec Empire by Catholic Spain in a most cynical light. They don’t want to know what really happened when the Spanish arrived – the replacement of false religion and its culture of death with the true religion and its culture of life – and incorrectly claim (1) that the natives didn’t really convert to the Catholic religion but embraced the Virgin Mary as just another iteration of Mother Earth, and / or (2) that all religions are basically the same and so it makes no difference which one is followed.
Actually, the post-Christian world is worse than the pre-Christian in that pre-Christian societies had no previous contact with the Catholic religion but our modern world has and yet it prefers idols of one kind or another. No wonder our Blessed Mother exhorted: “Do not offend the Lord our God any more because He is already so much offended” (Fatima, October 1917), and made clear that her divine Son requires reparation for sins committed against her Immaculate Heart (Fatima, July 1917). How incensed He must be when men and women who have the opportunity to know and love His Mother are instead indifferent, ignoring her suffering united to His on Calvary – such immense suffering endured for our sakes – and yet are open to honouring an horrific Mother Earth fertility goddess. As we all know Pope Francis even welcomed the Pachamama idol to Rome (Oct, 2019); two months later he denied that Mary is Co-Redemptrix (Dec 12th 2019, Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe).
Oh, how we need to pray for Pope Francis. Not even the most corrupt popes of the past went this far!
Medieval Times (late 5th to the end of the 15th century) showed us that Christendom – a Catholic civilisation – is attainable, while Modern Times (16th to the 21st century) shows us what happens when the Catholic religion is widely rejected.
The following events stand out as marking the beginning of our times:
(1a) 1517 Germany – the Protestant Reformation, a revolt led by Luther sparking a world-wide Religious Revolution that would replace the Church with the anti-Church if it could.
(1b) 1517 Turkey – the Abbasid Caliphate replaced by the Ottoman Caliphate, making Turkey the centre of the Islamic world with a bridge into Europe via Constantinople (Istanbul).
(2) 1519 Mexico – the beginning of the end of the Aztec Empire as the Spanish arrived under Cortez, finding a level of barbarity they could neither understand nor tolerate. Conversion to the Catholic religion would overcome the deeply ingrained culture of death but most of the conquered population were resistant to converting.
(3) 1531 Mexico – God’s response to (1) and (2) above: He sent His Mother into what had been the heart of the Aztec Empire (Dec 9th) as the Woman of the Apocalypse, “clothed with the sun, with the moon under her feet …” (Apocalypse 12:1). Her appearance was miraculously pictured upon Juan Diego’s tilma and she directed that she be called “Holy Mary of Guadalupe” (Dec 12th).
Note: What the native people “read” in the picture of Our Lady of Guadalupe and a summary of the surrounding events can be found at:
The most obvious reason for the appearance of Our Lady of Guadalupe is that she came to convert the Aztecs, and that is certainly true. Their “‘reading’ of the Sacred image brought whole tribes from all over Mexico, led by their chiefs and rulers, to be received into the Faith. And so it happened that the worship of pagan idols was overcome” and “more than 8,000,000 natives in seven years (were converted) to the Catholic Faith.” (Father Rahm cited in Thomas Mary Sennott, Acheiropoeta: Not Made by Hands: Miraculous Image of Our Lady of Guadalupe .., p. 27). However, there is much more to Our Lady of Guadalupe’s appearance:
– It was the one and only time in history that the Mother of God has appeared as the Woman of the Apocalypse, and as such it is of particular universal significance;
– It stands at the head of other Marian apparitions of world-wide import that followed (Rue de Bac, 1830; Lourdes, 1858; and Fatima,1917);
– And unlike pictures painted to commemorate other Marian apparitions, science – for all its supposed brilliance and authority – is unable to explain how the original was made (it has no brush marks), why it has lasted (its “canvas”, a tilma made of fabric that decays within 30 years) or how its visual effects are accomplished.
Moreover, the original picture of Our Lady of Guadalupe has miraculously lasted throughout Modern Times (just on 5 centuries) to date, suggesting that what she came to do is not yet complete. Could it be that Our Lady of Guadalupe and Our Lady of Fatima “bookend” Modern Times; that is, that Modern Times is the battleground upon which the triumph of her Immaculate Heart will stand?
I have not yet explained how the Reformation, Islam and all four apparitions mentioned above are linked, but I have taken up so much space already in the comment box and am very unwell presently, so I will have to leave it at this for now.
Dearest Aussie mum. Thank you so much for this. We pray for your health and strength. I am distressed at the words “very unwell.” You give us much encouragement with the clarity of your faith. We look forward to a continuation of this your heroic effort.
Cardinal Cupich has forbidden the Hail Mary to said publicly in church after Mass. Some have opined that this is because of one “Karen” who complained that Jesus’ mother wasn’t a mirror image of herself. Could be, that.
Some have opined that this might remind one of the three Hail Marys that were recited after the Traditional Mass. More likely, that.
A third possibility comes to mind, which I would call a strong probability: I bet that the Hail Mary was forbidden because this would be inimical to the rapid development of Pachamama Masses. Many bishops are running as fast as they can into this hell of kowtowing to Francis’ worship of the murderous demon idol Pachamama, the abomination of desolation which he has caused to be enthroned in the Holy of Holies where it must not be by divine mandate, on the very altar of Jesus’ Sacrifice in Saint Peter’s Basilica. Yep, I bet that’s why the Hail Mary cannot be publicly recited in church. Consonant with this for Blase is that he’s requiring priests to get vaccinated with the murder-of-babies vaccine. Yep, more little ones sacrificed to the demons.
But of course, while these cowards kick dearest Immaculate Mary in the face, repeatedly, they fear Saint Michael, and so the prayer to Saint Michael is forbidden by Blase to be recited publicly in church after Mass. In doing that, such as Blase only succeed in being even more offensive, as if this were a challenge to Saint Michael, and to Jesus Himself.
Here’s the ultra sad testimony of this priest of the Archdiocese of Chicago… What we’re seeing is what some have called moral injury. He’s at peace, he says, having thought about all this really a lot, he says, really thought about it, he says, repeating himself: he is at peace, he is at peace, he is at peace. He protesteth too much methinks.
So sad. I mean, you can almost hear his tears falling on the altar…
When, Lord, will it end? Please, Lord, shorten the time for the sake of the elect.
Hey! :-) Here’s an idea: Let’s say the prayers traditionally said after the TLM Mass for this priest:
Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee; blessed art thou amongst women, and blessed is the fruit of thy womb, Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen. (x3)
Hail, Holy Queen, Mother of Mercy, our life, our sweetness, and our hope. To thee to we cry, poor banished children of Eve. To thee do we send up our sighs, mourning and weeping in this valley of tears. Turn, then, most gracious advocate, thine eyes of mercy toward us, and after this exile, show unto us the blessed Fruit of thy womb, Jesus. O clement, O pious, O sweet Virgin Mary. Pray for us, O holy Mother of God. That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Pray for us, O Holy Mother of God, that we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ.
Let us pray. O God, our refuge and our strength, look down with mercy upon the people who cry to Thee; and by the intercession of the glorious and immaculate Virgin Mary, Mother of God, of Saint Joseph her spouse, of the blessed Apostles Peter and Paul, and of all the Saints, in Thy mercy and goodness hear our prayers for the conversion of sinners, and for the liberty and exaltation of the Holy Mother the Church. Through the same Christ Our Lord. Amen.
Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in the battle, be our protection against the malice and snares of the Devil. May God restrain him, we humbly pray: and do thou, O prince of the heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into Hell Satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world for the ruin of souls. Amen.
Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us. (x3)
So, I’m forever asking people to pray for Pope Francis. I pray for Pope Francis. I mention his name in the Roman Canon (the Eucharistic Prayer) as expected. I always add an intention for him at the prayers of the faithful Not only that, but I offer Masses – many Masses – for Pope Francis. I announce these Mass intentions publicly, also on Sundays. Yes. I would ask anyone accusing me of being against Pope Francis as to whether they – motu proprio – go out of their way to do the same, or, if they are amongst the laity, have this accomplished by priests.
Moreover, I pray for Pope Francis and encourage people to pray for him even against heavy criticism which has it that if I pray for him, that must mean that I agree with everything he says. He says some nice things, some innocuous things, some ambiguous things, some dangerously ambiguous things, some downright wrong things. Don’t we all?
Hell would be where I would already be if many kind souls including a number of cloistered nuns (God reward them!) were not praying for me. I make mistakes. I commit sin. Thank God, I go to confession. Thank you, dear Lord Jesus.
But let’s not be ostriches. Let’s not be worshippers of Saint Peter’s successors. Saint Peter, when he was not Saint Peter, ran away and then thrice denied our Lord. Later he fell under the rather severe though entirely correct reprimand of Saint Paul. But Peter did become Saint Peter. Get it? We help each other in God’s grace to stay on the straight and narrow. If we don’t do this, we will all go to hell together.
Ezekiel 33:1-9 — The word of the LORD came to me: “Son of man, speak to your countrymen and say to them: When I bring the sword against a land, and the people of the land choose one of their men and make him their watchman, and he sees the sword coming against the land and blows the trumpet to warn the people, then if anyone hears the trumpet but does not take warning and the sword comes and takes his life, his blood will be on his own head. Since he heard the sound of the trumpet but did not take warning, his blood will be on his own head. If he had taken warning, he would have saved himself. But if the watchman sees the sword coming and does not blow the trumpet to warn the people and the sword comes and takes the life of one of them, that man will be taken away because of his sin, but I will hold the watchman accountable for his blood.’ “Son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; so hear the word I speak and give them warning from me. When I say to the wicked, O wicked man, you will surely die,’ and you do not speak out to dissuade him from his ways, that wicked man will die for his sin, and I will hold you accountable for his blood. But if you do warn the wicked man to turn from his ways and he does not do so, he will die for his sin, but you will have saved yourself.”
We’re all in this together. We will all look together on Him whom we have all pierced through, men of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, including you and me. I myself – and I know this for a fact – have crucified the Son of the Living God with what has resulted in me because of original sin and because of all my own rubbish sin. So have you, and you and you and you… Right?
Does that mean that any one of us, say, Pope Francis, is above correction if he happens to do or say something so entirely ambiguous and misleading or just downright wrong that out of human respect the terrible scandal that is endangering people’s eternal salvation cannot be corrected? No. Those browbeating others into political correctness and all worldly niceness are simply acting ultra vires, beyond their powers. What remains as fact is that when people’s eternal salvation is endangered, a pastor who has the obligation to protect the sheep is to protect them regardless of whom the wolf du jour happens to be. Period. No, really, even one who is no more than a jackass:
Though I’m nothing but a jackass, I do try to do the best I can. I just want do the right thing, lest Jesus’ Little Flock goes to hell, lest I go to hell. Also, I’m just representing the real concerns of people who are wondering on giving up on the faith because of the inanity and total cowardice going on in high places. I am addressing those concerns for those souls as I MUST do in conscience.
But let’s be specific, shall we? Where’s there’s smoke, there’s fire, right? But my question is as to where the fires of hell are really burning, and why the smoke of Satan has infiltrated. Not in any particular order:
(1) PACHAMAMA: I do take issue with Pope Francis worshipping the death-mongering demon idol Pachamama in Vatican Gardens, and I do take issue with Pope Francis causing, for all of us to see, the enthronement of this abomination of desolation where it must not, by divine mandate, be, that is, in the Holy Place, the high altar of Jesus’ Sacrifice above Saint Peter’s relics in Saint Peter’s Basilica in Rome. A Pope doing that. It’s a matter of conscience for me not to go along with the Pachamama prayers and liturgies which are proliferating by the sycophantic. It is a matter of conscience to correct the scandal. There are weak people, souls redeemed by our Lord whom He also wants to save, who go along with all this demonic execration. Is it a matter of bad optics that a priest charitably corrects the Holy Father for the sake of saving souls? Is this causing division? Any division is not my doing. It’s on the one who’s doing the wrong thing, who are set on keeping people from understanding how to remain with our Lord in the midst of chaos. I have remained, do now remain, and will remain in solidarity with Jesus, Divine Son of the Living God, Divine Son of the Immaculate Conception. Jesus is insulted. He hates when He sees His mother grimace at all of this evil.
(2) TRADITIONIS CUSTODES: I do take issue with Pope Francis rejection of the lex orandi (the law of praying) found with Jesus’ Most Holy Sacrifice as presented in the Mass of the Ages, the Traditional Latin Mass. That lex orandi, that Sacrifice, is the self-same lex orandi found in all rites, whatever they happen to be: Coptic, Syromalabar, Syromalankara, Ukrainian, Ambrosian… so very many. Francis says that such lex orandi, such a Sacrifice of our Lord Jesus at the Last Supper and Calvary, is only to be found in the Novus Ordo in the Roman Rite. But since this is the same lex orandi in the Novus Ordo that he rejected for the TLM, he is also rejecting the lex orandi of the Novus Ordo. He is rejecting that the Novus Ordo presents the lex orandi, rejecting that the Novus Ordo is the Last Supper and the Sacrifice on Calvary. He is rejecting the lex orandi in all other rites throughout the world. Reject one as the bearer of the lex orandi, the Last Supper and Sacrifice on Calvary, and you reject all. That’s why it’s called A LAW: it’s the same in all rites. Francis has wrongly equated the rite and the lex orandi. And just to say: that ancient saying, lex orandi lex credendi (the law of praying is the law of believing) to which he refers, means that the rejection of the lex orandi is the rejection of the lex credendi. The entire faith from the Last Supper until today issuing from the Last Supper and Calvary has been rejected by Pope Francis. So, Traditionis custodes is an evil law, and therefore no law whatsoever, neither demanding obedience or disobedience as it is simply nothing. It is to be ignored. That’s on him just for himself. This is his private opinion no matter how public he has made it, how official he has made it. It is not an ex-cathedra infallible statement. But he has caused grievous scandal. I cannot be part of that by some sort of sycophantic silence, letting people be scandalized right in front of me. Nope. Can’t do it. I can’t do that in conscience. Just because I take issue with what Pope Francis can say or do doesn’t mean I’m rejecting him as the Bishop of Rome. As I say, I pray for him, and, ever so ironically, I offer Mass for him. It’s just that I offer that lex orandi, that Sacrifice Most Holy, in the form of the Traditional Latin Mass. I do not support schism. I do not support disrespecting the Holy Father. Not to correct him is extremely disrespectful. Not to correct him is to be sycophantic. To be sycophantic is by definition to be disrespectful. To be sycophantic is by definition the fulfillment of hatred. I don’t want that for anyone. So, I help people understand. I do correct Pope Francis. That is done out of love, obviously at risk to myself, parrhesia and all that.
(3) LGBTQI+: I do take issue with heart stopping ambiguity about anything LGBTQI+, whereby a good thing is said here but then a horrific statement cancelling that is provided there. Pope Saint Pius X rejected such ambiguity as being as bad or worse than any blatant heresy. Indeed, the mind-numbing ambiguity sucks more people in, wears more people out, dispirits people, leads them out of the Church into and beyond the truly darkest of existential peripheries. I just can’t stomach that. I vomit that lukewarmness out of my mouth. It literally makes me sick to my stomach. I just cannot watch people right in front of me take scandal from Pope Francis’ ambiguity. I pray for Pope Francis, but I will present the fullness of the faith to Jesus’ Little Flock as I am bound to do by Christ Jesus Himself. I’m not going to deny Jesus even if by way of omission. I don’t want to be denied by my heavenly Father. No compromise with Jesus, no grey areas. All grey areas bleed red blood, Jesus’ blood. I can’t do that. I will teach the truth with charity for the salvation of souls. Might it seem like I’m optically messaging diversely amidst the big-community conversation? Sure. Good. I’m happy to be as divisive as Jesus. Let’s see… where’s that sword of division of His now? Ah, yes… Here it is. In my heart. I’m convicted by the truth of the Lord Jesus, whose own Most Sacred Heart was pierced through.
(4) AMORIS LAETITIA: Everything I mentioned for LGBTQI+ is good for the entirety of Amoris laetitia…
(5) DIVISIVENESS: Pope Francis repeats ad nauseam that he wants unity. I disagree with any desire for a unity which disregards Jesus. I’m with Jesus. I’m with the Church. I’m with Sacred Scripture, Sacred Tradition and the authentic interventions of the Supreme Magisterium of the Church. It is the Living Truth, Christ Jesus, who unites us in Himself, He the Head, we the members of the One Body of Christ. Always and everywhere. No compromise. Ever. And if this eats away at the consciences of people and makes them angry so that they ferociously complain – wait for it – I LOVE THAT! GREAT! Finally I’m getting through. These people just might be saved in the end. I’m glad to take the blowback for Jesus as He uses me. I’m happy to be in solidarity with Jesus who went way out of His way to provoke people with the truth He provided with such great clarity and charity that we in our cynicism crucified Him. Anyone who measures success in the priesthood by a priest not getting complaints has never even once read the Gospels with eyes open. Ever. If they have, and have rejected the Living Truth of the Sign of Contradiction, well, I pray for their conversion to Mary’s Divine Son. Division! More division! That’s what I say. The women of Jerusalem wept. The high priests shook their fists and said that we have no king but Caesar. Such division! I love it. Would that we would have more of it. But who is there? I’m the worst candidate, but if it comes to this, and, among some few others, it does, I say: Here I am Lord! Be Yourself the Cause of Division through me! And that’s not a blasphemy or pride. It’s humble thanksgiving for having the opportunity in my own small way to thank the Lord for all that He’s done for me, especially in forgiving me, and now, for having me be His priest, His instrument of His own Truth for the salvation of souls. Who cares if some have their feathers ruffled if in the end because of that they get to heaven? Yes. Here I am, Lord.
But.. but… -splutter-splutter- you’re imprudent then Father George! Imprudent! Just like that ol’ meanie Jesus!
Let’s discuss that, the prudence of Jesus: should he have been a man of consensus? You can take that and shove it where the sun don’t shine.
Now you’re being rude and inappropriate and boundary-crossing, Father George!
Really? Do you really want me to cite you God’s own extremely graphic insults in the Sacred Scriptures as inspired by the Holy Ghost? See, for example, Ezekiel 23:19 in the context of the condemnation of Religion bowing to State in all political correctness. This is an insult for those prostituting themselves to political correctness! Bwahahaha!
But, that’s a digression. Let me take all this a bit further, let’s talk about the Vaccine. ;-)
(5) MURDERING BABIES FOR VACCINES:https://lozierinstitute.org/wp-content/uploads/2020/12/CHART-Analysis-of-COVID-19-Vaccines-02June21.pdf Click on that link to find out that all available vaccines to date in these USA have purpose murdered babies so as to research and/or develop and/or test “vaccines.” Oh, I forgot. Those pushing for vaccines also cite that article with the idea that it’s all cute but we will continue to push vaccines anyway. Pope Francis now has started up having vaccine passports for certain parts of Vatican City. Pope Francis has had vaccines mandated in Vatican City and for multiple Papal trips. I have to take Pope Francis up on that because people are very specifically taking scandal because of this actions and those of the sycophants who follow him. The question is always: “Are you with Pope Francis or not?” It’s never: “Are you with Jesus or not?”
(6) FOLLOW YOUR OWN CONSCIENCE APART FROM THE CHURCH: There are plenty of “Conferences of Bishops” of particular states, such as Colorado, which are offering letters of religious objection to the vaccine (even though this is also a matter of the natural law available to everyone). Great! But then all of them, as far as I know, praise whatever it is that individuals and their consciences come up with, for or against the vaccine. No. The vaccine is evil intrinsically. As Saint Pope Paul VI said in Humanae Vitae about contraception: It’s intrinsically dishonest. And that would be a mortal sin. Pope Francis’ Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith put out a statement affirming conscience as well, but then added, like, you know, most of the time the mandates are not right. Lots of wiggle room for steamrolling people there. And Pope Francis is smashing people down. Imagine what he would do if bishops or priests who were to greet him on his trips or who would want to continue to work in Vatican City would refuse to get the vaccine. This is a scandal, and I must do my part for the tiny portion of the Lord’s Little Flock in this parish to do the right thing, to set the record straight. How is it that even the most “orthodox” amongst priests and bishops and browbeating fellow priests to encourage people to do whatever the hell they want and it’s all good? Oh, I forgot: the stated purpose of the Synod on Synods, to say that everyone is infallible. Yep. More on that in a future post.
That baby is reaching out of the uterus and grabbing hard on the finger of the surgeon. In organ harvesting “vaccine” times, this baby’s organs would be ripped out of him. But that’s all good and holy, is it? That baby is the image of Jesus. How are you going to rationalize that to Jesus and His blessed Mother. No. Pope Francis and the bishops and priests who support him are risking going straight to hell because of their approval and encouragement of the vaccines. I have to reprimand them for the sake of their own eternal salvation, from Pope Francis on down. If I don’t, I will go to hell. But I want to go to heaven.
BUENOS AIRES, Argentina – The Prayer to Pachamama posted by Caritas Venado Tuerto – Walter Sanchez Silva/CNA – August 6, 2021
The Diocese of Venado Tuerto’s Caritas branch apologized Tuesday for having posted on its social media a prayer to Pachamama, an Andean deity. [But they didn’t apologize. They just told Christ’s faithful to F-off, as we will see.]
“The pachamama is a symbol of fertility, of the earth and the sacredness of life. It is a myth full of spiritual meaning (that) can be used to advantage,” said the now-deleted Aug. 1 post. “Some religious festivals have a sacred meaning and are occasions for gathering and fraternity. These are the new paths for the Church and for the achievement of an integral ecology. Holy Father Francis [Descriptive instead of titular. Sycophantic.]. #somoscaritasarag #caritasvt #equipomagrevenadotueto,” the post said. The prayer read:
“Hail Pachamama, sweet source of our life, may you be forever venerated. [The demon-idol is praised as the Almighty Creator of Life. In their blasphemy of using the Scriptural greeting of Saint Gabriel to the Immaculate Virgin Mary (Luke 1:28) as traditionally translated in Spanish as “Dios to Salve” (“God redeems you”, the blasphemers are obviously trying to replace Mary as Mother of God with Pachamama “Mother Earth”, saying that some amorphous “god” of the broader inanimate universe has brought the demon to be life giving. Hell…]Blessed are the fruits of your womb [because everyone alive brought forth by Pachamama is a god], our daily bread [and in a time of almost no one believing that the Most Blessed Sacrament is the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus, every demon-child of Pachamama is held to be the Eucharist themselves], may you be blessed now and forever [But don’t think that looks to heaven in future. No, no. There is just the nihilism of death. Mind you, living children are buried alive in Sacrifice to the demon Pachamama in honor of this darkness, you know, as a way to bribe, placate the death mongering demon]. Look with compassion, Holy Mother, upon the human pack that destroys you out of ambition. [That refers to people getting food…] Blessed be your clemency Pachamama [a death mongering demon is clement?]. My land preyed upon by madness. You are the source of life and joy. Pachamama, holy land, Holy Mother, Virgin Mary.” [You know, really, truly, I’m starting to understand the Spanish Inquisition of the past. I’ll tell you this as an absolute certainty, Jesus, Divine Son of the Immaculate Conception is not joyful about this, and He will come to judge the living and the dead and these freak idolaters with the fire of truth and holiness.]
[…] The posting of the prayer drew massive pushback on social media, leading to its deletion. Cáritas Venado Tuerto posted Aug. 3 on Facebook:
“We want to apologize to those who felt offended by our post about Pachamama [In other words, they are not apologizing. They are simple telling everyone that they are stupid, so stupid, in fact, that they got offended. And that, for the blaspheming idolaters of demon Pachamama is really stupid. This is a non-apology apology. Just. Wow.], the intention was to communicate our communion with Francis who in the Apostolic Exhortation Querida Amazonia says to us: ‘It is possible to take up an indigenous symbol in some way, without necessarily considering it as idolatry. A myth charged with spiritual meaning can be used to advantage and not always considered a pagan error. Some religious festivals have a sacred meaning and are occasions for gathering and fraternity, albeit in need of a gradual process of purification or maturation. A missionary of souls will try to discover the legitimate needs and concerns that seek an outlet in at times imperfect, partial or mistaken religious expressions …’ (79). ‘Such a spirituality will certainly be centered on the one God and Lord, while at the same time in contact with the daily needs of people who strive for a dignified life…’ (80)” [This is the rationalization of an antichrist, who rejects our Lord and His Blessed Mother, accompanying idol worship of demon Pachamama: ///sarcasm on /// “No! We said it’s not necessarily idol worship! So we can go ahead and bury children alive in honor of Pachamama so as to accompany demons and their idolaters, you know, until they, you know, like, go to hell and stuff like that there, so, like, it’s all good and stuff.” /// sarcasm off /// Francis has taken the demon idol Pachamama and has caused this Abomination of Desolation to be enthroned where it must not be by divine mandate. Just because Francis says Pachamama worship is not Pachamama worship does not mean he is telling the truth.] […]
Here’s the deal: God created all to unite all of creation in the Second Person of the Most Holy Trinity, now Incarnate, Christ Jesus. He came among us by way of His Immaculate Virgin Mother as overshadowed by the power of the Holy Spirit. He created creation in such manner that she, His Mother, could have all that is necessary for her to be a good mother to Him and to all of us. I try to express this in simple ways on this blog, such as with a years long series of posts called “Flowers for the Immaculate Conception”, flowers created by her Son that we might have the joy of giving those demonstrations of thankfulness of love to her, and she might have the joy of receiving them, and Jesus might have the joy of seeing her joy.
Giving a flower to Mary by way of her Divine Son Jesus is much better than worshipping the death demon idol Pachamama, causing the living symbol of that demon (red flower) to be enthroned as the Abomination of Desolation where it must not be by divine mandate.
Meanwhile, Pope Francis says that the lex orandi, the law of praying, which gives rise to the lex credendi, the law of believing is invalid, reducing the law of praying (Jesus offering Himself in Sacrifice for us – the Innocent for the guilty – in obedience to the Father, so as to have the right in His own justice to have mercy on us)… reducing the law of praying to being a mere rite, dissing that rite, thus dissing our assent to the faith in that very sacrifice. In doing this for one rite he does it for all rites, including the Novus Ordo, the New Order of Mass. Thus, he wipes away all faith from Adam until now, so that he is free in his own mind to create a new faith. Don’t think that the choice of the demon-death-idol-Pachamama, to whom people are sacrificed, is just a mistake. An oversight. No. We live in dangerous times.
Immaculate Virgin Mary (not Pachamama!) pray for us now and at the hour of our death. Amen.
Traditionis custodes: “Art. 1. The liturgical books promulgated by Saint Paul VI and Saint John Paul II, in conformity with the decrees of Vatican Council II, are the unique [=only, l’unico] expression of the lex orandi of the Roman Rite.”
Let’s demonstrate the heresy in article one of Traditionis custodes:
(1) Francis pits the two rites (Traditional Latin Mass and the New Order of Mass) against each other, delegitimizing the TLM as not being at all an expression of the lex orandi, the Law of Praying merely because of having different rubrics. In other words, Francis equates rubrics and the Law of Praying. Wrong! That’s a hellish insult of Christ Jesus.
(2) All rites of Holy Mass throughout the Church throughout history constitute the Law of Praying each of them and together, for the Law of Praying is that, in the Holy Mass, Christ Jesus is offering Himself to the Father with us at the Last Supper united with Calvary, all this regardless of the rite, regardless of the century, regardless of the place, regardless of the culture, regardless of the people assisting at that particular Holy Mass in that particular rite. The Law of Praying is univocal, one expression of the Law of Praying, the one Sacrifice of Jesus, the Divine Son of the Living God, Divine Son of the Immaculate Conception, who redeems us, and please God saves us in this Law of Praying.
(3) The mention in article one above of lex orandi is inescapably a reference to an ancient formula variously reported from a disciple of Saint Augustine, Prosper of Aquitaine. The most common received maxim, continuously cited by all, entirely correct right through the centuries, is Lex orandi lex credendi. “The law of praying is the law of believing.” In other words, the One Sacrifice of Jesus in every rite of Mass is that by which, in which we believe all of divinely provided faith.
(4) To reduce this Most Holy Sacrifice of Jesus to mere rubrics and then delegitimizing one set of rubrics, one rite of Mass which has been offered from time immemorial until this very day, is to attack Jesus personally, to attack His Sacrifice, to attack that which we believe in divinely provided faith about that one Sacrifice of any and all rites regardless of any rubrics. To equate rubrics and faith is an attack on the faith, delegitimizing all faith from time immemorial until this very day. The only true faith is to be found in the rubrics of the New Order of Mass with the New Order of Faith insisted upon by self-absorbed and self-congratulatory Promethean Francis.
(5) Oh, and don’t think this is about also disabusing the New Rite of Mass of abuses. There can be no abuses in the mind of Francis, for he committed the worst abuse of all, spoken of by Daniel, by Jesus and in the Apocalypse, setting up, establishing, enthroning that Abomination of Desolation, that demon idol Pachamama on the Altar of Jesus’ Sacrifice, the Papal Altar in Saint Peter’s Basilica, where by divine mandate it must not be.
(6) Daniel also mentions that there will be ending of the Daily Sacrifice at this time. What Francis has done is equating rubrics and faith for one rite while entirely ignoring the Holy Sacrifice of Christ Jesus is not only to say that one rite of Mass, the TLM, is illegitimate and an incorrect source of believing, but he has simultaneously said the Sacrifice of the Mass in all rites – that pesky of law of praying – is incorrect and must be discarded, including the Sacrifice of the Mass in the New Rite of Mass. Get that? In the eyes of Francis, the Daily Sacrifice has ended, the Faith has ended. He can make it up as he goes along.
(7) In the Synod on Synods, now already in motion with consultation, it is first of all said right up front that the faith doesn’t matter in the least, for it is all relative to whatever consultation comes up with, it being that the entire population is infallible. More on that latter. But what it means is that if dialogue results in Pachamama being a nice thing, then idol worship and blasphemy and sacrilege will be the “faith.” If same-sex marriage is dialogued out to be a nice thing, then that will be the “faith.” Etc. And of course, all of those things and more will have special liturgies in the New Order of Mass. There are already Pachamama liturgies.
(8) Therefore we already have a total lie in the very title of the document. For Pope Francis, the bishops are destroyers of Tradition, of the faith, which is why he says that they are custodians of Tradition. This is also a heresy. Trent, in defining this, spoke of Tradition as that which is handed on almost as if by hand, quasi per manus, having it that this is actually done by the Holy Spirit. But the Holy Spirit is blasphemed as the Spirit of ___________ (fill in the blank).
(9) In those same years as Augustine and Prosper of Aquitaine, it is Saint Vincent of Lérins who had his own correct maxim cited and held by all, always and everywhere: “Moreover, in the Catholic Church itself, all possible care must be taken, that we hold that faith which has been believed everywhere, always, by all.” Let’s see: “Quod ubique, quod semper, quod ab omnibus creditum est”:
That would be the faith, the law of believing, the lex credendi, which shines forth from the law of praying, the Sacrifice of Jesus offered in whatever rite with whatever rubrics, as offered by all peoples of all ages and everywhere.
What Francis has wrought in Traditionis custodes is heresy, blasphemy, and is not a law of any kind, and therefore is not to be obeyed, disobeyed, nothing, for it is simply nothing.
ALSO, don’t think I’m angry with Pope Francis, or bitter, or some stupid thing like that. I think that what he does is terribly wrong, but I publicly pray for him, I publicly not only mention him in the Roman Canon, but frequently offer Holy Mass for him, though somewhat ironically, of course, offering the Traditional Latin Mass in the parochial church as the main parish Mass on Sunday. And that intention is pronounced in the hearing of all the people.
I want to be a good son of the Church. I want to go to heaven. One of the things I do toward that end is to go to confession. I try to go weekly. When I get the chance, I go more than that.
I apologize for any typos and such in this screed. I typed as fast as I could possibly go early this morning. I’m too worn out to go back over it. I’m just a weak and fallen human being. I’m no better than Francis on my own. We all need to look to the grace of Jesus, Divine Son of the Immaculate Conception. We all need to help each other get to heaven. I want to see Pope Francis in heaven. That’s the only way I’ll ever get to heaven. No one is out of reach of the Sacrifice of the Mass. But Jesus does want us to assent, to believe in the Holy Sacrifice. Jesus wants that His law of praying is our law of believing. I’m with Jesus. I am Francis’ good servant, but God’s first. Amen.
Aussie Mum writes her cri du cœur in a recent comment box which I’ve transferred here:
“For the past few weeks I haven’t had sufficient concentration to read much nor the strength to do much at all but have done my best today to read through this post regarding the papacy as it is very much on my mind. Like most everyone else who is troubled by Pope Francis’ words and actions I have no way of knowing if he is simply a bad pope or even if he is pope at all – only time will tell – but he certainly causes confusion and division. We can and should pray for him and for those he has led astray (those who believe and follow the heterodoxy he has encouraged and those others who have left the Church in disgust), and for us who remain that we do not fall into heresy or be led into schism.
“I am very concerned about the possibility of unintended schism by faithful Catholics. Servant of God Father John Hardon (1914-2000): ‘By the time of St. Jerome (342-420), the word (heresy) became fixed to designate a group cut off from the Church by reason of heterodox doctrine, as distinguished from schism which separated through disobedience to hierarchical authority’.
“Father, would you please consider doing a post on how to remain in union with the pope and avoid schism when one is not sure if the pope is the pope and when some (many?) in the hierarchy appear corrupt (heterodox and perhaps even apostate)? In other words, how do we go about obeying hierarchical authority in the present climate?”
Thank you, Aussie mum. Blessings upon you. Here are some succinct points of consideration. Perhaps you or our readers might have some others. I mean, I am weighed down by all of this, and many more things. Random and in no particular order whatsoever:
Be a little lamb of Jesus’ Little Flock. As one of our readers in Texas put it, something like: Run squealing with joy into the arms of our Heavenly Father. Yes, that is what we do as Jesus presents us a gift to our Heavenly Father; after all, our Heavenly Father so loved the world that He sent His only begotten Son to grab us, bring us to heaven, to do just that.
Be joyful to be under the maternal protection and maternal solicitude of the Immaculate, Virgin, Mother of God; it is this greatest of all women, greatest of all human beings, who brings us to Jesus by also being our Mother with her intercession under the Cross and right now, asking the Holy Spirit, her Divine Spouse, to sanctify as members of the very Body of Christ, Jesus the Head of the Body and we the members of that same one Body of Christ.
We are to keep us with the sacraments, being baptized, confirmed, keeping up regularly with Confession and the reception of Christ Jesus in the Most Blessed Sacrament, our Eucharistic King, getting the Last Rites if we are in need… If bishops and priests are wimping out – cowards! – by refusing to provide the sacraments, at least we are regularly to make an act of perfect contrition (sorry to God for offending Him, instead of merely ourselves merely fearing the loss of heaven and our fearing the loss of hell) in conjunction with the intention to go to individual confession when this is possible, if ever.
Daily prayer, Rosary and devotions and – if possible – Adoration, which at least we have in our little parish. Don’t forget Kateri Tekakwitha who united herself throughout the day with Jesus wherever Holy Mass was being celebrated throughout the world, wherever He might be in the Most Blessed Sacrament.
Don’t be entitled to the kind of anger that is not righteous but instead is merely our fallen cynical bitterness as rationalization for our own lack, you know, as in the attitude that so hates the actual person of Pope Francis or other Bergolianesque personages that we use them as an excuse to lose hope in being saved ourselves, recognizing ourselves to be weak, but then not turning to Jesus, but rather entrenching in our own rubbish, blaming them even while shaking our fists at God, shrieking that we would be faithful but all bets are off now that others present unfaithfulness to the church and the world. We’re never entitled to apostasy and schism. We are only entitled to look to the wounds of Jesus and know that He wants us with Him in His Church with His Mother.
Review that which is the unchangeable truth in, say, the canons of the Council of Trent, which we can find presented in felicitous format in, say, the Penny Catechism or any and all of the Baltimore Catechisms.
Review the lives of the saints even as did the soldier Ignatius on his convalescent bed of pain in monastery when a canon ball had hit his knee in battle. The “old man” Ignatius (fiery) became Saint Ignatius, now fiery with the ardent flames of love of the Holy Spirit. We need encouragement and we need to encourage each other.
On that note, I’m on the phone most of the day – hours and hours – with priests and laity looking for encouragement and providing encouragement. All times are difficult times as we always have our fallen human nature to deal with since Adam until the last man is conceived, but the green wood is now turning dry and we absolutely must support each other and help each other get to heaven. Eternity is eternity. We support each other as did groups of martyrs going to their deaths, singing the Te Deum in thanksgiving to God for the opportunity to suffer for the Name, singing hymns to dearest Mother Mary, happy, so happy to be the children of God.
We are to be full of gratitude for the sacraments that we have received – in other words, do a review of one’s life of sacraments! – rejoicing in pastoral solicitude of the Supreme Pastor, Christ Jesus, the Almighty, who crushes the evil coward pastors and pastors the flock Himself with the few faithful priests who run to His throne and to His dear Mother. Isn’t Jesus ever so good and kind? Yes, Jesus is very good, very kind.
In that thanksgiving, we are not to hold grudges against even the worst of sinners, no matter their position of influence or position in the Church, no matter how much objective sin they have committed, no matter how much scandal they have given, no matter how many (even by the hundreds of millions) they have even hotly desired that they be on their way to hell… you know… not to overlook all of that hell, but rather to ask Jesus that they be converted, which might reverse even quite a bit of the damage they have done. I want to put a caveat on that, however, with 1 John 5:16 – “If anyone sees his brother sinning, if the sin is unto death, he is to pray and [God] will give him life. This is only for those sinning not unto death. There is a sin unto death. I do not speak about that, that he must pray.” – Praying for those whose (objective sin) is mortal, deadly, grievous, is a terrible burden. We are weak. We might pray for them. I do. But one must not be condemning them as if Jesus’ grace is not as powerful as their sin; that would be blasphemy. But one can simply refrain from praying for them. If one does pray for the terribly evil and corrupt (objectively speaking, right?), one must absolutely be keeping up with the sacraments and prayer, and do this with grace-given humility, and perhaps not only have a good confessor who might provide a brief word of encouragement even during the sacrament.
In keeping the mysteries of the Holy Rosary before us, thanking Jesus and Mary (not pretending to time travel but thanking them right now!) as those Hail Marys fly by, make it real: recognize, for instance, that Jesus chose all twelve apostles, one who betrayed Him and committed suicide, one who denied Him, all of whom ran away (thank God John came back to stand in solidarity with dearest Mary under the Cross).
Don’t run away from reality: “I don’t pay attention anymore because it depresses me! I’m an ostrich with my head in the sand!” Jesus severely reprimanded those of us who refuse with such malice to read the signs of the times. Jesus created us with reason and He graces us to have the fortitude to use it. If we have run so far away from God, have the humility to admit that for all of us, even me, even you (and that’s the hard part and why we run, right?), and then rejoice to rejoice that the Son of the Living God obeyed the Father to reach into our world just that far to grab us at great cost, so very much does He love us. Notice what’s going on. Bring that not to yourself with all subsequent frustration and despair, but to dearest Jesus, as a little lamb of His Little Flock.
As that little lamb, jump into Jesus’ arms as He carries us next to His Sacred Heart in the midst of the battle with the wolves, or as Jesus Himself puts it, with the vixens (the b****es). In other words, slightly diversely, “Don’t let the bas****s get you down.” :-) Jesus just says it like it is, as did his cousin John. Also, “Throw us not into the battle alone, but you (carrying us in your arms) deliver us in battle from the Evil One.” Yep. Not a bad prayer, that one, a deprecatory exorcism, you know, just to make a most literal persnickety translation. Don’t be doing imprecatory exorcisms wherein little you or little me command Satan when even Saint Michael did not do this, but rather, let’s also know our place, and simply ask God to put Satan down. This is not “less powerful”. Jesus does not despise the authority of His Church or the manner in which He Himself established the ministry of exorcism. Even if you’re a priest, you must have the direct express mandate of the bishop in order to directly address Satan. No, not even that pious little “prayer” which is actually a full blown exorcism. That too. And you. Don’t do it. Just humbly ask Jesus. Saint Michael is powerful not because he arrogantly bucks authority, but because of his humility. But this is a rabbit hole for most people. Don’t take the bait running down that hold. There will be a Serpent there. Just follow the authority of the Church. BTW, no one but no one has refuted what I’ve written in that post. They only disobeyed the Church and just got themselves into serious trouble for bucking the Church. I don’t know how many exorcisms I’ve been mandated by bishops to do right around the world because of arrogant people bucking the authority of the church on just this point.
Pray for priests. It is they who offer Holy Mass, provide absolution, Last Rites. We need priests who are believers, who go regularly to confession, who regularly provide the sacraments to those in need, who preach the immutable absolute unmanipulatable truth who Jesus is in season out of season, wanting to go heaven with Jesus’ Little Flock.
It’s a sin to allow oneself to take scandal. It’s a sin to despair. It’s a sin to leave the Church. We are to be crucified with Jesus in the Church. As the Master so the disciple. We must rejoice in the joy we have to rejoice in when we are privileged to be on the cross with Jesus in the very short time we have in this world before please God – being on way to heaven. And it is not a sin to hope to go to heaven! It is imperative to have that hope. And there is great joy in hope, which is also a present reality, founded in such as receiving an absolution (at least in the manner of an act of perfect description in the circumstances describe above) in receiving Holy Communion, as least “spiritually” if that is all that is possible, either because of persecution inside or from outside the Church.
Don’t ever think that it is legitimate to obey an evil edict, for what is evil is never a law. It is instead supreme obedience to obey the Canon Law of the Church, to obey natural law, to obey the commandments. It is not obedience to obey some bishop, even the bishop of Rome, who acts ULTRA VIRES , meaning, beyond one’s legitimate capacities. Those powers of office never include the right to command anyone to sin.
Know that those who arrogantly, viciously, maliciously, and with great hatred of God and man persevere in all that which is truly bad and evil, they will themselves run themselves into hell and want to be there, never going to heaven because they will never want to go to heaven, always entrenching in hell in ever more arrogance, viciousness, malice and hatred. Thank God that they will not be in heaven. I want to go heaven and I don’t want to have hell in heaven. I thank Jesus that there is a hell for the bad actors. I would rather they repent before they die. I can’t judge myself, but I think that by the grace of God I have repented of any rubbish I’ve committed in my life. I pray that I keep this repentance and enjoy the great grace of final perseverance, enduring to the end, singing in my soul the Te Deum and Marian hymns right to heaven. I hope. And that’s a great joy in all hope. I wish everyone had that hope and joy. But, that’s on them. Let’s not ourselves lose hope and joy because of them.
So, I’m repeating myself. Please add to the list in the comments box. I’ve written as fast as I can on my keyboard (which is quite fast). It’s what’s in my little heart. There is salvation in much counsel. תְשׁוּעָה בְּרֹב יוֹעֵץ (Proverbs 11:14) [That’s cited in deep red somewhat visible Hebrew cursive lettering in the header-picture of this blog, on the left, between the lightning and the feet of Jesus, above the words in white color]. In other words, help us out with how to get through the battle of heresy and immorality while avoiding apostasy and schism…
One last thing, to repeat: We’re never entitled to apostasy and schism. We are only entitled to look to the wounds of Jesus and know that He wants us with Him in His Church with His Mother. We are only entitled to look into her eyes and answer her: “Come, all you who pass by the way, look and see whether there is any suffering like my suffering.” (Lamentations 1:12) Can you really tell her that you hate her Son’s Church and you hate that Jesus stayed with His Little Flock, suffering for them in the midst of the Church, He the Head of the Body and we the members… that we hate that, hate Him, hate ourselves, hate others, hate… her… dearest Mary?
Firstly, a review of Pachamama: 27 October 2019, at the closing Mass for the Synod on the Amazon, after having recently blessed and having recently participated in the worship of blood-thirsty demon-idol Pachamama in the Vatican gardens, Pope Francis caused the enthroning of the blood-thirsty demon-idol Pachamama on the Papal Altar of Saint Peter’s Basilica in Rome, just above the bones of Saint Peter. It the last picture above note the Pachamama symbol toward the bottom of the bowl. Such a plant with red flowers is a thousand times more the fake living presence of fake Pachamama, more of a demon-idol and than any wood carving could ever be.
Just my opinion, but Jesus Himself spoke directly to you and me of Pope Francis in the apocalyptic chapters of the synoptic Gospels. Here’s my persnickety translation of the Greek. Look up these chapters and read them. More posts on that later.
“When you see the desolating abomination being caused to be enthroned where by divine mandate it must not be…” (Mark 13:14)
Obviously, someone is causing the demon idol to be situated, established, in this case, enthroned. We’re the ones seeing this. Pope Francis is the one who is causing this to be done. Usually that last phrase is translated something along the lines of “where it shouldn’t be.” No, no. The verb used is used quite exclusively for that which must be or not be by divine mandate.
“When you see the desolating abomination spoken of by Daniel the prophet having been caused to be enthroned in the holy place…” (Matthew 24:15)
“In the Holy Place…” Yep. And I dare you, look up the passage in Daniel.
For good measure, read Luke 21 and Apocalypse 12. Yep.
Moreover, in the passages above, we sometimes read of a “time, times and half a time,” variously interpreted as 3.5 years or whatever. The vocabulary for time in all these cases (kairos) refers to divinely appointed periods of time, such as a year of jubilee, or a liturgical season, or high holy days for whatever liturgical event is taking place. Daniel, however, spells out “time, times, and half a time” for us in terms of the number of days in three and half years: 1,260 days (see more below). Pope Francis caused the enthronement of the demon-idol Pachamama on the Altar of Jesus’ Sacrifice, the Papal Altar, in Saint Peter’s Basilica on 27 October 2019. This was singularly the worst, most evil thing that any Pope or Jewish High Priest had ever done outside of denying Jesus and maneuvering for Jesus’ death (in which we have all participated).
Well, that would be true, except that Daniel adds another detail, another singularly most evil thing, both evil things being consonant with each other. Daniel has it that an unimaginably violent persecution will take place (1) not only when the abomination is set up, enthroned where it must not be, (2) but also when the Daily Sacrifice is abolished.
Tangent: I have no idea about symbolic numerology in the Scriptures or Jewish writings. But if we were to take all this literally, which seems to be intended by Daniel, then, most particularly, he speaks of an unimaginable persecution in terms of actual days over years. ///
Back to the Pachamama: Recall that Pope Francis had Alexander Tschugguel hunted down for throwing a Pachamama demon-idol into the Tiber River, and that this viciousness of Pope Francis went on for weeks and months. That high profile hunting would never have been done in any other pontificate, because no one would have cared about some stupid demon-idol having gone missing from a smallish Catholic church. The police would have simply mumbled “good riddance” to any priest at that Carmelite church hosting the demon-idol, and not one other person in the world would ever have heard about it. But Pope Francis was angry. It went worldwide.
Anyone who would cause a demon-idol to be established, enthroned on the Papal Altar above the bones of Saint Peter does not seem to care in the least about Jesus, the Divine Son of the Living God, dear Son of the Immaculate Conception. Instead, it seems that Jesus is just another idol, as if to say: If you believing Catholics throw Pachamama out of a church then I will throw your Traditional Mass out of all parish churches along with the Jesus of your entrenched Tradition.
Just my opinion, all of this, but Jesus does want us to read the signs of the times and severely reprimands us for not doing so. I’m trying my best.
Bringing to an end the Daily Sacrifice:
These days I get phone calls from priests in good standing and with assignments talking about leaving so as to join the SSPX. For me to get such calls is merely the tip of an iceberg. Priests don’t want to participate in throwing Jesus out of any parish church because of a persecution from within the Church. Will they leave? Will they be sanctioned by bishops and be forced to leave?
Pope Francis (1) demanded that all workers in Vatican City State be vaxed or placed in wildly different conditions, or lose their job, and then Pope Francis (2) demanded that anyone whomsoever he would meet on his trip to Iraq had to be vaccinated, and then Pope Francis (3) is required that anyone who wants to assist at a Papal Mass and receive Holy Communion is to be banned, forbidden, unless they are vaxed. The very next step – just hypothesizing here, but stating the most probable – is that Pope Francis (4) will require bishops, priests and deacons and religious to be vaxed, you know, because he thinks that would be a good example to the world, and that would, of course, usher in forced vaccines right around the world. Very many priests will refuse, and will be suspended or worse, meaning that uncountable parishes will be bereft of the sacraments.
Pope Francis says he laments abuses of the Novus Ordo, but there is no abuse possible for him, since enthroning the demon-idol Pachamama during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass on that very altar is not any kind of abuse whatsoever. I can only imagine with this – in all probability – that there will be enculturated forced concelebrations of all priests with their bishop that will have a Pachamama enthronement theme (because it’s all about themes). And with this the vast majority of priests will be sanctioned for not participating in such diabolical hellish behavior. And that will mean that the Daily Sacrifice will be smashed down quite entirely.
Just my opinion…
Is what this painting depicts below really so very evil?…
I’d like to go down to see jerky-boy priest, blasphemer and committer of sacrilege, who was filling-in for the pastor of this parish just west of Guadalajara, Mexico, and explain to his face just what a sacrilege and blasphemy it is to place the Most Blessed Sacrament, our Eucharistic King, into the demon-idol Pachamama as if that demon-idol were a monstrance. But I still have pneumonia.
But hey! I invite him to come up here so that I can sufficiently instruct him. Here’s a update-video explaining just who this is who did this and, diversely, what the actual pastor – who was away – thinks about him and what he did. Hint, the pastor’s zeal is quite inspiring. I’m sure he took care of the instruction part:
There are good priests everywhere. We need to recognize that and support them also over against weak and effeminate (arch)bishops.
After Pope Francis condemned any condemnation of paganism on Pentecost 2021, you know, because we live in the time of the “Spirit”, something which actually backs up his promotion of the demonic Pachamama on the Papal Altar of Saint Peter’s Basilica in Vatican City, it just seems to me that the direction in which Pope Francis thinks he’s going to lead the Church is such that not only will the Traditional Mass be smacked down at least in some way, but even any Monsignor-Richard-J-Schuler-esque type of Novus Ordo which does not enthrone Pachamama or which does not enthrone that which is Pachamama-esque on the Altar – or as a replacement of the Tabernacle. There has been lots of talk to enculturate the worst of the fallen world into the Mass.
It’s like the Pope is throwing a tantrum and saying: “We’re not here to execute you. This is a cultural revolution, making a mess.”
Oh, but let’s not forget the people who have already literally been sacrificed to Pachamama, buried alive, you know, in the life-creating-mother-earth-who-sometimes-is-angry-enough-with-us-to-kill-us-all. Making the world hate priests on such a grand scale just because they love Jesus, and holding them up as enemies of culture, enemies of all, is a precursor to that which obscenely dark, demonic, violent.
And voicing all that is what people warn against doing: “Don’t overreact!” they say. “That’s what they want,” they say. “Then they mock you and say, ‘Look at how crazy you are’,” they say.
Yeah, well, what I say is this: To hell with Pachamama. I’m not going to hell with Pachamama.
What I am going to do is to offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, Christ Jesus, at the Last Supper united with Calvary. No dialogue. No conversation. No being “men of consensus.” No compromise. No undefined “spirit” of Vat II. Instead, it’s God or nothing. And it’s going to be God, come high water or any hell anyone wishes to bring upon Jesus’ Little Flock.
And no, Pope Francis, this isn’t “ideology”. God has granted this wretched sinner the grace to love Him. This is about God who is Love. This is about God who is Truth. This is about His love and His truth which is stronger than any political correctness you would scare people into. God’s love and God’s truth is stronger than fear, casting out all fear. Perfect love is not consonant with perfect fear. Fear is a tool of Marxism. God is love. God is not an ideology. Wow. There. I said it. The most dangerous words in the Church today. I’ve declared myself: I’m a believer! Yay!
I’m sick of the lies that are rewarded throughout the Church. I’m sick of the homosexualism that destroys the image of God (male+female+family) but is rewarded throughout the Church.
But I’ll tell you this: I’m not crunched down in on myself, all bitter and hateful. No. It is the love of God and Jesus’ Little Flock which compels me to be crucified to myself so as to carry about the death of Jesus, that glorious death manifesting the glory of God’s love for us, so that others may see that Jesus is risen, alive, and wants us in heaven, He who – consonant with all this – will come to judge the living and the dead and the world by fire.
I’m offering Holy Mass exclusively ad orientem (as presumed in the Novus Ordo rubrics). I’ve started to regularly offer the Traditional Latin Mass, also, of course, ad orientem. There is a thirst for JESUS in Jesus’ Little Flock. Murderous demonic idol Pachamama is not what Jesus’ Little Flock wants. Instead, it is Jesus to whom Jesus’ Little Flock go, and then go with Jesus to heaven. For myself, I don’t want to go to hell. I want to go to heaven.
I hope to see you there as well, Pope Francis. But really, stop attacking believers. Stop attacking Holy Mass. Stop promoting Pachamama Marxist ideology. Stop it with the fear and self-absorption of Promethean Neo-Pelagianism. Go right beyond what you call the darkest of existential peripheries, right into the hell broken out on Calvary, and witness all of hell ripping Christ Jesus, the Lamb of God, to shreds. See Jesus’ Love. See Jesus’ Truth. Serve Jesus.
After Holy Mass a group of us met in the “counter’s room” which doubles as a sacristy and triples as Faith Formation classrooms. One fellow in particular has been speaking much to me about dearest Mary, Jesus’ good mom. I told him that I blame him if I’m preaching so much about Mary. I added that if keep this up, I’m going to cry during the homily, the truths about Jesus and Mary being too overwhelming for me. He immediately countered by saying that they would all be crying with me, and to keep going.
I remember someone telling me that choking up like that (and I’ve already done that very many times) – and much more anything to do with actual tears – is a terrible sign of weakness, effeminate, womanly, and is not to be done by a man. Never. And it was a woman who told me this, a Mother General of her religious order no less. Sigh. So, I guess I am the most inept of all, weakness incarnate. But I knew that already, as I’ve crucified the Son of the Living God, dearest Mary’s Divine Son, with my sins. How can I begin to preach to others? But such is the intercession of maternal heart of Mary Immaculate, and the outrageous forgiveness of her Divine Son.
I preach about Mary because it brings it all home in a way, I think, that pleases Jesus. And so now I suppose I am being presumptuous, thinking that I surely know what it is that is going on in the perspective of Jesus on the Cross. I’m sure I am awfully presumptuous in some way. From hidden faults acquit me, O Lord! I’m a fallen human being. BUT, it just seems so very right about what is going on between Jesus and His Immaculate Mother. I can’t help it. I’m quite sure that Jesus is telling me: “Ah, little Georgie, if you only knew what goes on between my Heart and my Mother’s Immaculate Heart. But you cannot bear it now. But, yes, we are in solidarity with each other…” I tried to preach about this solidarity last night. I lead up to it…
I do mention Pope Francis’ take on the Gospel. Here are some of his words of his I didn’t much get into during the homily for your convenience. I wanted to speak more about Mary. You might not quite get the motivation for my incisiveness below if you’ve not listened to the homily about Mary from Jesus’ perspective. I’ve written on this before. I’ve added some commentary: ///
“It is more the time for joyfully proclaiming the Gospel than for combatting paganism. [Ooops! These are not mutually exclusive. Throwing the demonic pagan death-cult Pachamama into the Tiber river is entirely consonant with God’s life of grace that will not have us tolerate a fear of our own death in testifying that Pachamama is straight out of hell. Is it really no longer a time to call out the brood of vipers, the sons of Satan, who hate God and man? Why is that? Not only has Pope Francis been complicit in the worship of pagan death goddess idol Pachamama, but now he’s commanding that no one else is to condemn paganism? I mean, this is in the Ten Commandments: Thou shalt not have strange gods before ye! Pope Francis wants to rid the Church of the Ten Commandments?!] It is the time for bringing the joy of the Risen Lord, not for lamenting the drama of secularization. [Wait, wait, wait. Pope Francis, bringing the joy of the Risen Lord is in and of itself part and parcel of lamenting the drama of secularization embodied in, say, Pachamama, which you promote. What the hell are you talking about? This is the first time you’ve offered Holy Mass on this altar after enthroning Pachamama there quite a while back and the first thing you do is to hold up paganism and then the protection of the secularization of the world and the Church. Is this your bid to excuse yourself concerning Pachamama? And now you entrench by wanting the whole Church to follow your lead right into hell (objectively speaking) by teaching others to break the Ten Commandments?] It is the time for pouring out love upon the world, yet not embracing worldliness. It is more the time for testifying to mercy, than for inculcating rules and regulations. [Woah woah woah. You see what he did there? He just said that rules and regulations (like the Ten Commandments in context) is itself worldliness. That’s, like, demonic. For Pope Francis, the Ten Commandments are not love and mercy, you know, love of God and love of neighbor and love of parents, but rather are an embracing of worldliness, a lack of love and mercy.] It is the time of the Paraclete! It is the time of freedom of heart, in the Paraclete. [Saint Paul says much the same, except that Saint Paul says our freedom as the children of God in grace is not to be an excuse to throw away the Ten Commandments, not at all.]
“The Paraclete is also the Advocate. In Jesus’ day, advocates did not do what they do today: rather than speaking in the place of defendants, they simply stood next to them and suggested arguments they could use in their own defence. That is what the Paraclete does, for he is “the spirit of truth” (v. 26). He does not take our place, but defends us from the deceits of evil by inspiring thoughts and feelings. [Whoa, whoa, whoa: “feelings”? This is where Ignatius and Freud meet up, and where Ignatius is killed off with a discernment of spirits of fallen human feelings that do not follow reason and which are part of the cross we now carry after original sin. “Inspiring… feelings.” The feeling that I’m being inspired with right now is this: barf barf barf. In grace, we follow right reason to make an act of the will to do what is honest before God and man, often very much against any fallen “feelings.”] He does so discreetly, without forcing us: he proposes but does not impose. [Actually, the Holy Spirit quite forcefully puts us next to the Blessed Virgin Immaculate Mother of God so as to have us look upon the wounds of our Savior. That‘s what the Holy Spirit does. Sure, we can reject this, but this is what The Holy Spirit does. We don’t make existential decisions in the Holy Spirit apart from Christ Incarnate and Crucified.] The spirit of deceit, the evil one, does the opposite: he tries to force us; he wants to make us think that we must always yield to the allure and the promptings of vice. Let us try to accept three suggestions that are typical of the Paraclete, our Advocate. They are three fundamental antidotes to three temptations that today are so widespread.
“The first advice offered by the Holy Spirit is, “Live in the present”. The present, not the past or the future. The Paraclete affirms the primacy of today, against the temptation to let ourselves be paralyzed by rancour or memories of the past, or by uncertainty or fear about the future. The Spirit reminds us of the grace of the present moment. There is no better time for us: now, here and now, is the one and only time to do good, to make our life a gift. Let us live in the present! [“The grace of the present moment”… What does that even mean? Mere advice? I’m waiting for Jesus here. We are to live in Him by the sanctifying of the Holy Spirit. God holds all of time in His hands as just another creation. We are with those of all time as we are all brought in that one hour before Christ Jesus on the Cross. We are all of us in all times in the present moment, and we are all in that present moment through all time inasmuch as we are in union with Christ as the members of the Body of Christ. Without Christ, this “live in the present” thing is mere existentialism. This is not what the great spiritual writers speak about. Instead, any present moment, say, with Jesus in Holy Communion, puts us right before all the members of the Body of Christ. Or am I being ideological, using “trite” words like “trademark”?]
“The Spirit also tells us, “Look to the whole”. The whole, not the part. The Spirit does not mould isolated individuals, but shapes us into a Church in the wide variety of our charisms, into a unity that is never uniformity. The Paraclete affirms the primacy of the whole. There, in the whole, in the community, the Spirit prefers [“prefers”…] to work and to bring newness. [Because individuals who are redeemed and saved and made into tabernacles of the Holy Spirit, who carry about the death of the Lord in them, that most glorious death in all love, are nothing? It’s all about “The People”, “The Proletariat”, not about us individually being brought into the One Body of Christ? The Holy Spirit sanctifies individuals, all of them with free will and a conscience. Not a Body Politic.] Let us look at the apostles. They were all quite different. They included, for example, Matthew, a tax collector who collaborated with the Romans, and Simon called the zealot, who fought them. They had contrary political ideas, different visions of the world. Yet once they received the Spirit, they learned to give primacy not to their human viewpoints but to the “whole” that is God’s plan. [No, no. They didn’t keep their fallen human drama, their fallen human viewpoints, their sin. They actually abandoned all of that, all of them. They abandoned all to follow Christ. They didn’t carry secondary anti-Christ ideology but now were simply giving a bit more primacy to Christ. No. Pope Francis is speaking B and in B, S as in S.] Today, if we listen to the Spirit, we will not be concerned with conservatives and progressives, traditionalists and innovators, right and left. [Oh, yes we will. If any of those labels regards doctrine and morality, and in context, that’s exactly what you mean, Pope Francis, and that’s exactly what these things refer to in our common parlance, well then, we will reject all that lacks integrity and honesty. Yep.] When those become our criteria, then the Church has forgotten the Spirit. [No, no. I’ve remembered the Body of Christ, of which we are the members, you know: “What you have done to the least of these you have done to Me.” Therefore, no contraception, no abortion, no euthanasia, no homosexualist “civil unions” or “marriages” etc., etc., etc. This is about Christ Jesus, not your political categories foisted upon the faith by which you condemn all those who by the grace of God try to follow the Ten Commandments accepting all doctrine, all morality.] The Paraclete impels us to unity, to concord, to the harmony of diversity. He makes us see ourselves as parts of the same body, brothers and sisters of one another. [Again, what about the BODY OF CHRIST? You can’t say, can you? Try it: “BODY OF CHRIST.” You know, let’s give Holy Communion to the pious soul and also to the monster Joe Biden who comes up to Holy Communion while picking his teeth with the little ribs of aborted babies. That’s your unity is diversity? The Holy Spirit, as Cardinal Siri says, speaks univocally. Yep. Read Gethsemane. The living Truth is the same for all: Sacred Tradition, consonant with the Sacred Scriptures.] Let us look to the whole! [We will all look together to Him whom we have all pierced through, men of every tribe and tongue and people and nation, to Him who is, who was and who is to come, the Almighty. Just say it. With the Body of Christ we have… wait for it… the Body of Christ, not some lowest common denominator of hell. All members of the Body of Christ are equally to have acceptance of the full integrity of doctrine, the full integrity of morality, like, you know, the Ten Commandments.] The enemy wants diversity to become opposition and so he makes them become ideologies. Say no to ideologies, yes to the whole. [Say yes to the Body of Christ, for all else is ideology. And what you have given us, Pope Francis, is pure and unadulterated ideology, really quite Marxist in your presentation.]”
There is no other saint I know of who is more archeologically established than Saint George. We have found the ruins of early centuries church buildings built in his honor at the very time of his death throughout the still anti-Catholic Roman Empire, from throughout Europe to throughout the Near and Middle East and everything in between.
Saint George is trashed because of Renaissance paintings of Saint George on a white horse slaying a dragon so as to save a maiden. “All fiction!” it is shrieked. “Don’t be a martyr, be a man-of-consensus with the world!” is the brow-beating, bullying insistence which advice the soft and self-absorbed readily accept.
But the white horse is that of Jesus in the Apocalypse. In that Apocalypse the dragon is the great Serpent and Satan who is possessing the Caesars of the day. In that Apocalypse the maiden is the Church and the Mother of God. In the Apocalypse those who are killed in witness to Christ Jesus are the victors by their faithfulness right through death. The renaissance paintings are not original to those painters: They were merely representing frescoes in catacombs which depicted all martyrs like Saint George and at the time of Saint George in this fashion. Men who were martyred, women who were martyred, all depicted riding on white horses slaying the dragon, victorious over Satan by being faithful right through death.
Likewise, the virgin martyrs are dismissed as those to whom modern teenagers cannot relate. The first to be cancelled is Saint Philomena. In recent scientific studies, it is established absolutely that her catacomb stone reads: “Pax tecum Philomena” with no other possibility, and that the small glass vase found in that place contains the blood of a girl carbon-dated to the time of Philomena. Yep.
A priest working in the Holy See at the time I attended the presentations of these scientific studies actually hunted me down in Rome and insisted that it cannot be that I, a student at the Pontifical Biblical Institute, could promote the viability of placing Saint Philomena in the liturgical calendar once again. He was frantic, as if possessed. Yep.
The problem is both virginity and martyrdom, and martyrdom because of the virginity because of giving oneself over to Christ Jesus, to be “hidden with Christ in God” as Saint Paul says. We can’t have that today, shriek the inverted.
But that’s all years ago. Now what we have presented to us is that Jesus and His dear mother are irrelevant in every way. We must ignore them; we must obey the fallen world, we must worship Satan, Pachamama. Yep.
I will worship our Heavenly Father through, with, and in Jesus by the Holy Ghost and I will thank our dearest Immaculate Virgin Mary for interceding even for me as advocate, mediatrix, co-redemptrix. Thank you Jesus. Thank you Mary.
Dear Pope Francis, remember when you said that women with lots of children – more than two? – were nothing but rabbits? Yes, well, I’m child number four of my own mom, whom, according to you, Pope Francis, is therefore just another brainless idiot who is merely a copulating damned rabbit. You reduce my dear mother to a rabbit. And you laugh. Why do you hate my mom and motherhood, Pope Francis? Am I indignant? Yes, rightly so. Do I think you are a fraud with your hateful, misogynistic and altogether damned by God “teachings”? Yes.
Dear Pope Francis, to be consistent with your self-absorption, your propose Pachamama as a mother-creator of all there is, replacing the Most Holy Trinity, having the pretense in your own dark world that this idol worship is honoring motherhood. But your image of motherhood is so deficient that you can only come up with a wooden carved idol representing all that is death and darkness and demonic. Do I think you are a fraud with your hateful, misogynistic “teachings”? Yes.
Dear Pope Francis, remember when you said that many of your predecessor Supreme Pontiffs are damned heretics, you know, because they said, according to you, that Jesus is not fully our redeemer, but that Mary is also our redeemer? You should recall this, since it was on the Vigil of the great Solemnity of the Annunciation to Mary, 24 March, 2021. But your predecessor Supreme Pontiffs never pronounced such heresy. You are either ignorant or a malicious liar who is purposely causing scandal, purposely making your predecessors look like damned fools so as to make yourself a Promethean figure, the greatest, the only One!
Dear Pope Francis, you take those Supreme Pontiffs out of context. Taking their text without their context is your specious pretext. Your predecessor Supreme Pontiffs refer to Mary as Co-Redemptrix simply because it is fitting in justice that one of us – Mary – not divine, asks for the grace of redemption and salvation both of which entirely come from her Divine Son, Christ our God, Jesus. The “Co-” of “Co-Redemptrix” does not necessarily refer to equality, such as is to be seen in the usage of “co-worker” among those at the same level of service on a manufacturing assembly line. There is another usage for the prefix “co-” such as ourselves being “co-workers” with the Almighty Creator in the care of His Creation, such as is Adam’s vocation to till the ground, walking in the presence of the Most High. There is an infinite difference between the Creator and the creature even while the Creator calls His creature to be a mere co-worker in the garden all around us.
Dear Pope Francis, let me be pedantic in answer to your condescending insults to your predecessor Supreme Pontiffs and the very Mother of God. What is meant by your predecessor Supreme Pontiffs with their usage of “Co-Redemptrix” has reference to the fact that it is fitting in justice that a non-divine human being perfectly ask for the graces of redemption and salvation which only Christ our God can provide. That’s it. Mary does this. She is Co-Redemptrix.
Dear Pope Francis, you nevertheless claim that your predecessor Supreme Pontiffs are the most damned of all heretics because of their making, you say, the Blessed Virgin into some kind of goddess. They did not claim Mary to be a goddess. These assertions of yours, Pope Francis, are most dark, most evil. Your statements are blatant lies. It is as if to see the fires of hell flashing in your eyes, you who continuously claim that you are most humble of all, that only your humility can accomplish all you want, you know, because what you want is of sole importance.
Dear Pope Francis, do you laugh in scorn at Jesus and other members of the Body of Christ who are indignant with your insulting of Jesus’ mother, having it that she cannot be Co-Redemptrix? Well, let me tell you Pope Francis, it has been said and written about the Immaculate Virgin Mother of God, the most humble of all, more than you:
And my spirit rejoices in God my Savior for He has looked upon the humility of his slave, for behold, from now on all generations will call me blessed.
Dear Pope Francis, it seems that you hold Mary to be an idiot who cannot know our need perfectly so as to intercede for us perfectly, that which is needed for her to be Co-Redemptrix. But do you not commit THE psychological sin of projection of yourself unto her? She is the Immaculate Conception, you are not. She has purity of heart and agility of soul and clarity of vision and understanding so perfect – and truly beyond anything Promethean you think you have – that she can in fact see our need perfectly and, in solidarity with her Son under the cross, she can herself present that need perfectly to Jesus, who is alone our Redeemer and Savior. Jesus knows our need all too well, tortured to death on the Cross from the original sin of Adam and all the sins of all men throughout time until the last man is conceived, but, again, it is fitting in justice that she makes perfect intercession for us. It is fitting that she fulfil Genesis 3:15, She is in solidarity with Jesus, with His providing the graces of redemption and salvation which smash down the guilt of sin by filling us with God’s life. And she can see our need perfectly by simply looking to her Son upon the Cross taking on all that sin for this redemption and salvation. It is fitting in justice. She is our Co-Redemptrix.
Dear Pope Francis, the ever Virgin Mary miraculously gave birth to Jesus, remaining a Virgin to indicate that she conceived Jesus in Faith by the power and overshadowing of the Holy Spirit, remaining a Virgin still as she has not completed giving birth in faith to the members of the Body of Christ throughout time, but right there on Calvary. Haven’t you heard that it was said by Saint Paul how very many times that Jesus is the Head of the Body of Christ and we are the members of the Body of Christ? The mother of the Body of Christ is the same. The Fathers say that Mary did not give birth to a monster, just a head, but to the Head of the Body and the members of the Body. The members of the Body are birthed throughout time with her intercession she made under the Cross for us, her birth pangs, that perfect intercession. You, Pope Francis, cannot begin to understand the pain of motherly love she went through. You insult her. She is Co-Redemptrix precisely in her motherhood of Jesus and in becoming our mother. It is fitting in justice. You have been a novice master of Jesuits and you do not know these things, Nicodemus? She is not a goddess, but she is the Immaculate Virgin Mother of God. She did not redeem us or save us, but she continues to give birth to the Body of Christ throughout time.
Dear Pope Francis, she remained under the Cross while all the Apostles ran away, including Peter, your predecessor. But they ran out of fear. They could not look at the Mother of God, the Co-Redemptrix, in the face. Neither can you. You coward. Go ahead and try:
Dear Pope Francis, you can’t do it, you can’t look into her eyes, can you? What’s the matter, Pope Francis? Not enough humility? You insult the Immaculate Virgin Mother of God just as you insulted my own earthly mother. In saying that Jesus’ mother cannot intercede for us with motherly solicitude – that which would instead make her Co-Redemptrix -you are also saying that she cannot be our mother by that maternal intercession under the Cross with her Son being tortured to death right in front of her.
Dear Pope Francis, I’m sorry. I forgot. That makes sense for you. You are actually not insulting her in your own mind, because then, if she were not our mother but Jesus’ mother alone, then she would not exceed your limit of children, a limit which if crossed makes any woman a rabbit. You wouldn’t dare claim that Mary is a god-damned rabbit like my mom. My mom had four children, I being the baby of the family. You damn her for her four children. But Jesus’ mom is safe from your demonic attack because according to you she only had one Son, Jesus. But you actually do condemn her as a monster, the mother of a god-damned demonic monster who only has a Head, Jesus, but no Body, no Body of Christ, no Corpus Christi mysticum.
Dear Pope Francis, who are you, really, holding yourself to be so clever, Promethean, the all-enlightened one, so self-absorbed, so very humble in your own eyes, so very much better than Jesus’ Immaculate Mother?
Dear Pope Francis, the Immaculate Virgin Mother of God, Co-Redemptrix, Queen Mother, Queen of Heaven and Earth, of angels and men, also interceded for you, though you are so very, very ungrateful; you so easily insult her as you insult your predecessors, ingratiating yourself with the fallen world, with heretic Protestants who hate Jesus’ good mom, ingratiating yourself with freakish “catholic” heretics from whom you gain applause, ingratiating yourself, you think, with the great red dragon, the ancient serpent and Satan. She is powerful in exorcisms. But you insult her?!
Dear Pope Francis, you run away, not Mary. She was strong enough to stay with her Son. But you run, run, run. You coward. John came back, and, aside from Judas Iscariot, all the other Apostles would beg her forgiveness. But you? You insult her as being too clouded in her vision, too dark in her heart, too clumsy in her soul to be in solidarity with Jesus in our redemption and salvation, unable to intercede for us so perfectly for those graces of Redemption and Salvation that she cannot be Maternal Co-Redemptrix?
Dear Pope Francis, you claim that Jesus’ good mother cannot be The Woman singled out in Genesis 3:15, The Woman of Cana whose Hour of Intercession is to be during Jesus’ Hour on the Cross, The Woman singled out under the Cross to be our Mother, The Woman who is the Ark of the Covenant, clothed with the Son, with a crown of stars about her head, the exalted enemy over against the great red dragon, the ancient Serpent and Satan?
Dear Pope Francis, you say that the Immaculate Virgin Mother of God cannot do this? Who in hell are you to raise your heel to crush Jesus and His Blessed Mother and ours? Who in hell are you to raise yourself above her and above her Son who willed this humble economy of salvation with such mercy based on such justice?
Dear Pope Francis, Jesus stood in our place, the innocent for the guilty, to have the right in His own justice to have mercy on us. He did this with His dear mother accompanying Him, true accompaniment. It is wondrous to behold.
Dear Pope Francis, you instead hold up Pachamama as a goddess, as the mother-creatrice of the universe. Who in hell are you, Pope Francis?
Dear Pope Francis, do you hold yourself to be Saint John, who returned after he fled, so as, in your mind, to ever so condescendingly accompany Mary under the Cross? And when you march up to Calvary, do you not violently thrust Mary aside, saying that you know better how to to intercede for the world, more than Jesus own mother? You make a show of yourself. You make of yourself our true intercessor, a kind of god, one whom people can worship. And what does all that self-absorbed proclamation of yourself get you, Pope Francis?
Dear Pope Francis, you are violating Jesus’ good mother by insulting her Immaculate Conception, insisting she is too stupid to intercede for us, too lacking in understanding to fulfil appropriate justice that one of us ask Jesus for the graces of redemption and salvation (that being the definition of what it is to be Co-Redemptrix). Just because the archangel Gabriel does not strike you dead for insulting Mary on his own feast day in the traditional liturgical calendar (24 March, 2021) does not mean that Jesus is pleased with what you do against her, His mother. You rape her with your insults. Am I indignant with you, Pope Francis? Yes.
Dear Pope Francis, let me be pedantic for you, for it is you who lack understanding. We see in the logic of the Hebrew text of Genesis 3:15 in context that the Mother of the Redeemer stands apart from Adam’s sin, that she is immaculate, that she is enemy number one of the great red dragon, the ancient Serpent and Satan. We see in Luke 1:28 (in understanding the perfect participle in New Testament Greek), that Mary perfectly continues to stand perfectly transformed in grace since the instant she received her vocation (in context) to be the Virgin Mother of God (receiving that eternal vocation when she is conceived). Therefore:
Dear Pope Francis: It is because she is immaculate that she has the purity of heart and agility of soul and the clarity of vision and the breadth and depth of understanding to see what we need perfectly and intercede for us in perfect solidarity with her Son: she gave birth to Jesus, the Head of the Body, and by these birth pangs of her intercession for us, she gives birth to us as the members of the Body. Her perfect maternal solicitude is precisely what makes her Co-Redemptrix.
Dear Pope Francis: How dare you think to know what she went through, as if you could judge her from your fallen perspective. How dare you insult her as being incapable of perfect intercession, meaning that she cannot fulfil the appropriate justice of intercession. How dare you say that see cannot in this way of perfect intercession be Co-Redemptrix. How dare you insult your predecessor Supreme Pontiffs. How dare you insult the Sacred Scriptures…
Dear Pope Francis: Mary is our advocate as our intercessor, our mediatrix in this way of all graces, our Co-Redemptrix with such maternal solicitude to have us be members of the very Body of Christ. Yes.
Dear Pope Francis, are you that Pope who is a sign of unity below the one mother of the One Body of Christ? I think not.
Dear Pope Francis, GO TO CONFESSION. I’ll tell you this, unless you confessed, I wouldn’t give you Viaticum, I wouldn’t provide you the Last Rites. I’m not going to hell for the likes of scum like you Pope Francis. Sure, if you confess, I’ll absolve you, give you Viaticum, provide you the Last Rites, with joy. But if you do not submit to the mercy of God in all justice, I’m not going to accompany you to hell. I’m your Missionary of Mercy, but I cannot and will not act ultra vires, beyond my powers as a son of the Church: I will not condemn the justice of God and therefore the mercy of God. You’re on your own at the judgment. Just go to Confession.
Dear Pope Francis, don’t get me wrong. We love you to pieces, it’s just that we do so with objective reality: I want you to go to heaven. That would give greater glory to God. But I love God more than you, enough to want you to run from this oh-so-clever sophistry. I invite you once again to look into her eyes: she’s your Co-Redemptrix if you want:
People put forward all sorts of “nice” arguments in favor of priestly celibacy, economic, logistical, practical, in favor of availability for anything and everything from missionary work to being moved from parish to parish and so on. I don’t buy any of those arguments. All of those could be overcome in one way or another. Putting priestly celibacy on the level of expedience is the fastest way to get rid of celibacy altogether, as these are all disciplinary. The debate – dialogue if you want – would be unending.
Forget all that rubbish! Let’s talk about doctrine. Let’s talk JESUS. He’s never mentioned in this except for things like – and this is truly stupid – “Jesus was celibate.” Yeah, well, He’s a special case isn’t He? So, drop that dumb argument as well. Along the same lines, forget the bit about the Apostles not being married. They were in special circumstances as well.
On the other side, with Peter being married (remember the mother-in-law having the fever account?), that doesn’t hold either, as it seems from what we can surmise from Matthew 19:12 (I’ll get to that) and Paul’s letter to Titus, Peter surely became celibate. Not only would Peter be following up on Matthew 19:12, but he would be in line with this continuing tradition as spoken of later by Saint Paul, the the clergy are to be married but once, that is, to the Church. It would be insanity to say that “married only once” only refers to not being divorced and remarried, or to polygamy that they did not practice at that time. So, again:
Let’s speak of Jesus:
Jesus stood in our place, Innocent for the guilty, having the right in His own justice to have mercy on us, redeeming us from original sin and personal sin.
If we want, He forgives us, sanctifies us, makes us one with Himself, with the Body of Christ, Jesus the Head of the Body, we the members of the Body, as St Paul says.
We were created as the image of God, male and female, marriage and the family, as is eloquently pointed out in Genesis.
Jesus redeems that image and saves us by it by way of His own marriage with His bride the Church, as spoken about countless times explicitly throughout Old and New Testaments.
The marriage vows of Jesus, rendered in mercy founded on justice, are recited by the priest in the first person singular at the Sacrifice of the Mass, the Last Supper united with Calvary, at the Consecrations, those wedding vows:
This is my Body being given for you… in sacrifice
This is my Blood being poured out for you… in sacrifice
The priest is married to the Church by the Sacrifice he daily offers at the altar. How dare anyone say that a priest is NOT married. What an insult to both Jesus and the priest. How dark and hateful is that insult. How damnable.
Having said all that, let’s mention a few hateful assertions:
The stupid man says: “Priests should get married because that will cut down on abuse.” No, that superstitiously throws one sacrament at another sacrament as if that’s going to solve grave psychological issues and sin. All you are going to get is more incest.
The stupid man says: “Let’s ordain priests to say Mass but nothing else.” No, that just sets up people going to Holy Communion without any opportunity to confess their sins and be forgiven, which is the point of the Sacrifice of Jesus in the first place.
The stupid man says: “Let’s have women priests.” No, that just sets up an anti-image of God anti-redemption. Jesus redeems with a marriage, Himself with His BRIDE the Church (as we see throughout all the Scriptures). This is to redeem the image of God in us as at creation: male and female as the image of God in marriage and the family. The image of God is NOT lesbian, nor homosexual.
The stupid man says: “Let’s have temporary priests.” No, that’s like a self-serving divorce, the ol’ “Here for the good times, gone for the bad times.” This is about not sticking around as a father of the family. No father = extreme high risk of bad kids. The stats are insane on that. Check them out. I’ve always seen the same in revolving door parishes where the priests are changed out even multiple times a year, where priests are not pastors, just administrators, just there for the quicky, so to speak, and then gone, leaving their parishes entrenched in clericalized power groups wanting to kill each other. Really, that’s NOT what Jesus wants.
Having said all that, what does Jesus want?
Jesus wants a priest after His own Heart, who is humble of heart, who has integrity and honesty, who loves the truth and virtue and goodness and kindness, shunning evil and corruption and wickedness and lies and all manner of darkness.
Jesus wants a man who is a tabernacle of the Holy Spirit.
Jesus wants a man who will sacrifice himself for his family of faith, not counting the cost, even life.
Jesus wants a man who will rejoice to see Him, Jesus, exercising His own ministry of High Priest in the parish, letting Jesus take the lead, no matter what.
Jesus wants a man who knows full well and rejoices in the fact that he recites his own wedding vows daily to his Bride the Church as he recites in the first person singular the wedding vows of Jesus to His Bride the Church at the Consecrations at Holy Mass: my body being given for you… in sacrifice, my blood being poured out for you… in sacrifice.
By the way, just to say, if priests would only be who they are supposed to be in being fathers of their parish families, knowing they are married to the Church, encouraging people to go to Confession and doing the same himself, providing for them what Christ Jesus and the Church have always wanted to be provided with Truth and Morality (the splendor of the Truth), there would never have been such an abuse crisis, or financial corruption, or seeking after “power”, or whatever other self-centered rubbish fallen human beings can come up with.
But I’ll tell you this, no liberal jerky-boy Bishop wants to speak of Jesus when it comes to priestly celibacy as that would destroy every bit of liberal agenda they have on any given topic. Destroy priestly celibacy, destroy the Church (as everything about the Sacrifice of Jesus will be ignored. We will have no understanding of marriage, or the redemption of the image of God. Nothing.
And don’t think that procrastination in dealing with already married Anglican clergy or the practice of some in the “Orthodox” churches is that which bears doctrine. It doesn’t.
That’s a lot of fallenness to deal with, you say? Sure. What did you expect. This goes to the absolutely heart of our faith, to the Sacred Heart of our Lord Himself.
This is about Jesus, so let priests know that they are married to the Church.
And, please, don’t be so afraid to share this and similar posts.
The day before the Amazon “Synod” officially started, there was a pagan worship of idols ceremony in Vatican Gardens. It was bad enough, thought I, that demonness Pachamama idols were displayed for worship, an idol to which children up to puberty are sacrificed in the Amazon. But then I saw one report on some sort of Pachamama consort, another idol that was also displayed directly next to the Pachamamas. I had no idea what he was talking about since everything I had seen about the incident only showed the Pachamamas, but no consort. Maybe I didn’t want to see it. Just too disgusting. Apparently the picture of the consort was rare because it was so very incredibly disgusting. Was it that the POV of the photographers and videographers of the event was such that the Pachamama Idol Consort was just out of view, perhaps blocked by someone’s shoulder or head in front of the cameras? But that was on purpose. Any picture of the carved idol Consort would be just too damning.
In these months and weeks I’ve been too busy to research much of anything of the idiocies over in Rome, what with Mass and Confessions and Adoration and Hospitals and Nursing Homes and going on Communion Calls, cumulatively putting on thousands of miles in this vast territory of my parish in these months. I’m supposed to be a Missionary of Mercy in these back ridges of Appalachia, right? The days are very long and I have little time for demon worshippers in Rome.
But then, in looking up I think it was boat picture for a post on Pachamama, I saw it, the Pachamama Consort. The picture I saw wasn’t from a private individual, but from Catholic News Service.
It’s said that Pope Francis was caught off guard, that he was confused, an elderly imbecile who didn’t know what to make of all this, even that he was trying to be benevolent by remaining there for the entire and very lengthy ceremony in the Vatican Gardens. No. I don’t buy that. You can’t stare at the male-consort-idol next to Pachamama demonness idols to whom children are sacrificed for so long and not stop the idol worship ceremony, and not walk away from it… immediately…
And you don’t then bless the Pachamama idol. And you don’t then allow Pachamamas into a Church near the Vatican.
And you don’t then threaten severe prosecution of those upstanding individuals who threw the idols into the river.
And you don’t then have Pachamama brought in procession. And you don’t then have a worship ceremony of Pachamama in Saint Peter’s Basilica.
And you don’t then have Pachamama set upon the altar in Saint Peter’s for the closing Mass: the plant that is a zillion times more representative of Pachamama than any idol, the bowl having an Inca pictogram of Pachamama etched on the side.
Don’t leave the Church, just don’t follow Pope Francis in his promotion of idols.
UPDATE: By the way, this is a typical Marxist way of behaving. When I was in a parish of an openly and viciously Marxist priest in Eastern Nicaragua, taking note of things, I saw some artwork in his rectory, a painting of Jesus crucified. Jesus, our dear Savior, was also depicted with a ridiculously oversized, well, you know. Typical Marxism.
God will not be mocked.
Jesus will come to judge the living and the dead and world… by fire… Amen.
“To make sure that none of us is lost, we must repent from the bottom of our hearts. Since we have been commanded to go out and rescue idolaters and to instruct them, is it not even more important to save souls who already know God? If we are all to be saved, we shall have to help one another and support the weak in their struggle to live a good life. When one of us does wrong, it is for the others to warn him and persuade him of his error.”
But those faithful to Jesus are called idol worshippers because they insist Jesus is Divine and sinless, our only Redeemer and Savior.
Recently the Apostolic Nuncio to these USA, during the general assembly of the bishops, demanded concrete signs of submission to the “magisterium” of Pope Francis. I took that as a bullying threat because, well, there is no such thing.
Here’s the deal: No Pope has his own magisterium. His teaching is to be the teaching of Jesus, and of Jesus’ Church throughout the ages. For instance, if a Pius IX or a Pius XII pronounces something ex-Cathedra, say, about the Immaculate Conception or about the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, that’s nothing different from what the Church has always believed. I would never reduce such teaching merely to the idiosyncratic wierdnesses of some particular individual Bishop of Rome. No. This is Catholic teaching of the ages.
Pope Francis has never pronounced anything in an ex-Cathedra manner. Moreover, the thing most pushed for compliance, for submission, is Amoris laetitia. But Pope Francis called that a dialogue in it’s opening paragraphs. It’s means nothing on the level of teaching or “magisterium.”
If such pressure is given – and the pressure is a green light to not give believing priests assignments, and eventually to dismiss them from the clerical state – it can only refer to insisting on submission to the most unorthodox interpretations.
Thus, I guess it’s being demanded to put Pachamama idols on our altars with the Holy Sacrifice of Jesus. I guess we’re supposed to put Pachamama consort idols of a fully sexually erect man up on the altar as in the Vatican Gardens pagan worship ceremony at which Pope Francis blessed the idol. I guess we’re supposed to say that Jesus sinned against His mother. I guess we’re supposed to say that women with more than two children are rabbits (my mom had four children). I guess…
Should I go on?
My challenge to you +Christophe Pierre, is to come up with a list of things to which we bishops and priests must adhere so as to be counted among the supporters of Pope Francis.
You would think this would be about Jesus.
But no. This is all self-referential. Prometheam. Pelagian. Self-absorbed.
I will not submit to idiocy. I am a Catholic priest. I am priest of Jesus Christ. A priest forever in the line of Melchizedek. I will not submit to Satanic idiocy.
P.S. One might speak of the magisterium of JPII and, for instance, that saints efforts with the JPII Institute for Marriage and the Family. But all that is only hailed because it is reflective of that which is Catholic. It is Catholic. It is the magisterium of the Church. Nothing that Pope Francis has been vomiting out has anything to do with such doctrine, such morality, such integrity, such honesty, such honor.
If there’s no honor, there’s no obedience from me.
Hier stehe ich. Ich kann nicht anders. Gott helfe mir. Amen. And Amen.
Today was the infamous “Day Off.” I was at the hermitage. I looked over the LifeSiteNews translation and review of the Amazon Synod notes. I prayed a bit. Then, as one might do on a day off, I indulged in some recreation.
What with all the explosions and drownings and burnings and such, I thought I might add my own version to the meme.
Above is my two to the body, 1 to the head drill. I think this one was out 21 feet. I made this to fit on legal size paper. Not too bad, though I was pretty slow as the practice is getting a little more sparse with the cheap ammo at Walmart taking a hike. That doesn’t help anyone, actually.
Anyway, burning the demon Pachamama was next on the list to do:
The traffic you hear is in town, in Brevard, passing by a friend’s house where the burning took place.
This is in no way done so as to insult anyone in the Amazon. It is to make a commentary on idol worship.
Condescension about the tribesmen of the Amazon region? It’s said that they can’t live chastely, because, you know, they are equated as persons with ejaculation, of whatever kind and style, the “sacrament” of, it seems, so many in filthy, filthy Rome. In other words, they have no free will, no capacity for natural moral law. But the manipulators of the Amazon Synod (or the prestidigitators as Cardinal Siri called analogous manipulators), are they not talking about themselves?
The locals of the Amazon shouldn’t be offended by my comments, but rather with the Europeans and those in Rome who are playing them for themselves. I’m indignant on behalf of the locals in the Amazon Region. Those who hate God and neighbor in REPAM and the Brazilian bishops conference who forbid the evangelization of these peoples should be rejected by the locals of the Amazon Region.
So, with all the Pachamama news going on – and it always gets worse, much worse – I did something I don’t recommend anyone do. I Google-Image searched for Pachamama. That was a mistake. Pachamama is simply the slut of the Andes’ demons, so that what is in her womb is, in this superstition scenario, a demon.
The more I learn about Pachamama, the more I am horrified the the Immaculate Virgin Mother of God has been compared to and even equated with this demon goddess.
Amoris laetitia had a section dedicated to pastoral care for prostitutes, which no one paid attention to or made excuses for because they couldn’t wrap their “pious” minds around it. It was just too horrible to think that it could possibly be true. Whilst I lived in Rome for so very many years I would meet South American priests from Pachamama territory who would say precisely and with no ambiguity what the prevailing pastoral practice is; even admitting that they would “visit” the prostitutes themselves. Yep. Here’s a post I wrote about this with it’s own update:
Update: There is some pretty heavy interest in high places right now over some of the more controversial posts I’ve put up about the past couple of Synods. If I had to write an apologia about this, I would just say that my opinions are on behalf of those who suffer much in this world, who are marginalized and kept suffering it seems to me on purpose. That unnecessary suffering really just needs to stop, and stop now.
Original Post: It seems that paragraph 49 refers to prostitution to avoid poverty. Communion for active prostitutes has been part of pastoral praxis by some for decades and a continuous side debate for some of the liberation theology / arm-chair moral theology crowd. So:
49. Here I would also like to mention the situation of families living in dire poverty and great limitations. The problems faced by poor households are often all the more trying.36 For example, if a single mother has to raise a child by herself and needs to leave the child alone at home while she goes to work, the child can grow up exposed to all kind of risks and obstacles to personal growth. In such difficult situations of need, the Church must be particularly concerned to offer understanding, comfort and acceptance, rather than imposing straightaway a set of rules that only lead people to feel judged and abandoned by the very Mother called to show them God’s mercy. Rather than offering the healing power of grace and the light of the Gospel message, some would “indoctrinate” that message, turning it into “dead stones to be hurled at others”.37
36 Cf. Relatio Finalis 2015, 15.
37 Concluding Address of the Fourteenth Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops (24 October 2015): L’Osservatore Romano, 26-27 October 2015, p. 13.
I mean, what does that mean in light of footnote 351 other than to provide, say, Communion for active prostitutes? The solution, it seems to me, isn’t to argue for decades about Prostitutes going to Communion, but rather to open safe houses which can immediately set about finding jobs and shelter and education.
Who throws dead stones of doctrine at anyone? Is the reference to priests like me?
Does this throwing stones reference (coming not long after paragraph 27 in which the adulterous woman of the Gospel of John is mentioned) mean that Jesus was a fool damned by our Heavenly Father for telling the adulterous woman to “sin no more,” Himself stoning this woman into marginalization from the faith by His damnable indoctrinated doctrine-stone of “sin no more”? That’s not what the document says about Jesus, instead reporting in paragraph 27 that, “alone with Jesus, she meets not condemnation but the admonition to lead a more worthy life (cf. Jn 8:1-11).” In other words, the Gospel lies that Jesus told her to “sin no more,” which would inescapably imply that she knew she had in fact sinned (both objectively and subjectively), and that the condemnation is only avoided by taking in the forgiveness with repentance and a firm purpose of amendment. All that, for the document, is simply a heap of indoctrinated stones to throw. So, instead, the document insists that Jesus said that she is to live a more worthy life, inescapably implying that her life was already worthy, but just needed to be, you know, more worthy.
And that leads us back to paragraph 49, where the worthiness of adultery by prostitution, while not as worthy as a life which doesn’t include prostitution, is nevertheless so worthy that it is to be rewarded by such casuistry with, say, Holy Communion.
Look: Just open a safe house. I’ve worked in such places, offered confessions and Holy Mass in such places, given Holy Communion to prostitutes galore in such places. I’ve even ended up in a wheelchair and crutches because of such places. Really, I’ve been there, done that. Just get them the help they need. Don’t just say have a nice day with Holy Communion at a street Mass in the red-light district and not provide for them. Do provide for them both physically and spiritually.
Just call me the dumpster priest. But don’t try to make me take up a program that will keep prostitutes in prostitution. To hell with that.
And, by the way, you know all those people steeped in Tradition, that is, those Legion of Mary people? You have to know that I’m one of them, and you have to know that they started out by evangelizing at brothels.
Or is this really about thinking that prostitutes can’t repent? A prostitute once told me that a clergy guy (Episcopalian I think) would walk into her room for quick sex, first taking his clergy collar off, then unzipping himself, as if the collar in the back pocket would make what he was doing out front somehow moral. When she asked him about his visits to herself later (after she was converted from prostitution), he said that he didn’t think that people like her could possibly ever convert. Is that the message that we have here?
I would like to ask someone, but it seems that speaking with parrhesia isn’t to be met with answers of parrhesia. But if I’m wrong on that, I sure would appreciate an answer.
And, oh, by the way, this paragraph 49 cannot refer to something like thievery either for the mom or the boy, can it? We have better theology of private property than that.
I mean, I just can’t believe that this paragraph was written or published. Prostitutes are always in grave danger of disease, damage, dismemberment, and death by physical force or despair along. Get them out of the situation immediately. Don’t argue about their subjective guilt. If you want a lack of mercy and hurling stones, THAT kind of sophistry that keeps them in their prostitution is example number one.
Addendum about the recommendations of the Amazon Synod:
We’ve been hearing there’s a thing about ordaining uneducated men to the priesthood just for Mass, but not granting them faculties for Confessions. That’s consistent with the idea that these people cannot sin because, you know, they are pristine pre-original sin Garden of Eden people. Pfft.
I gotta wonder if the proposed deaconettes (sacramentally impossible) will do dances with pachamamas as part of an Amazonian Rite of Mass, and if that will turn into the shrine prostitutes we read about in the Old Testament. Remember, there’s no sin! (That’s sarcasm for the secularites reading this.)
