The Blah Blah Synod™ / Error has no rights

Above, Pius X gets it right, that error has no rights.

Below, the Hegelian dialectic, which throws objective truth under the bus, especially in Pope Francis’ Rahnerian version of this (evolutionary pantheism), which he uses for his Blah Blah Synod™.

Error has no rights. Even Pope Francis’ Blah Blah Synod™ has no rights.

Pope Francis to Diplomats (Jan 10 2022)

“It is […] important to continue the effort to immunize the general population as much as possible. This calls for a manifold commitment on the personal, political and international levels. First, on the personal level. Each of us has a responsibility to care for ourself and our health, and this translates into respect for the health of those around us. Health care is a moral obligation. Sadly, we are finding increasingly that we live in a world of strong ideological divides. Frequently people let themselves be influenced by the ideology of the moment, often bolstered by baseless information or poorly documented facts. Every ideological statement severs the bond of human reason with the objective reality of things. The pandemic, on the other hand, urges us to adopt a sort of “reality therapy” that makes us confront the problem head on and adopt suitable remedies to resolve it. Vaccines are not a magical means of healing, yet surely they represent, in addition to other treatments that need to be developed, the most reasonable solution for the prevention of the disease.”

  • [[My comment: Francis’ “reality” is that he is happy to murder the baby in the womb to research and develop and test “vaccines” upon their organs ripped from them. He pretends that he is the big-man, clever, the one who has it all figured out, that murder of the least of the brethren is the way to go and that he’s just condescending enough to lead the way for us. I reject that.]]

[…] “Agendas are increasingly dictated by a mindset that rejects the natural foundations of humanity and the cultural roots that constitute the identity of many peoples. As I have stated on other occasions, I consider this a form of ideological colonization, one that leaves no room for freedom of expression and is now taking the form of the “cancel culture” invading many circles and public institutions. Under the guise of defending diversity, it ends up cancelling all sense of identity, with the risk of silencing positions that defend a respectful and balanced understanding of various sensibilities. A kind of dangerous “one-track thinking” [pensée unique] is taking shape, one constrained to deny history or, worse yet, to rewrite it in terms of present-day categories, whereas any historical situation must be interpreted in the light of a hermeneutics of that particular time, not that of today.”

  • [[My comment: Francis cancelling people who want to worship God with the Ancient Rite is not consistent with his words here. He’s trolling, gaslighting. He’s monstrously tyrannical.]]

“Multilateral diplomacy is thus called to be truly inclusive, not canceling but cherishing the differences and sensibilities that have historically marked various peoples. In this way, it will regain credibility and effectiveness in facing the challenges to come, which will require humanity to join together as one great family that, starting from different viewpoints, should prove capable of finding common solutions for the good of all. This calls for reciprocal trust and willingness to dialogue; it entails “listening to one another, sharing different views, coming to agreement and walking together”. [2] Indeed, “dialogue is the best way to realize what ought always to be affirmed and respected apart from any ephemeral consensus”. [3] Nor should we overlook “the existence of certain enduring values”. [4] Those are not always easy to discern, but their acceptance “makes for a robust and solid social ethics. Once those fundamental values are adopted through dialogue and consensus, we realize that they rise above consensus”. [5] Here I wish to mention in particular the right to life, from conception to its natural end, and the right to religious freedom.”

  • [[My comment: the hypocrisy here is stunning: Francis insists on murdering babies in the womb for his abortion-tainted “vaccines.” Francis insists on making hateful prejudicial remarks against those who follow Jesus, the Living-and-Absolute-Truth. Francis insists on “values”, which puts morality on the level of the perception of the subject: “I value this or that…” you know, from the perspective of a fallen human nature. “Values” are the fastest way to guillotine the Catholic Church. I reject this.]]

Clericalism = Liturgical Abuse. Pope Francis’ liturgical abuse defines clericalism

Pope Francis says that he is against liturgical abuse. But he is by far the worst offender.

The Lord’s Little Flock has a right by way of the Blood of the Lamb to the Liturgy offered without the abuse of priests whose liturgical abuse screams “Look at me! Look at me!” No, we must look to Christ Jesus. Only He is the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world, who draws us to Himself on the Cross, on Calvary. But you would never know about Jesus with the demon-idol worship of Pope Francis.

Covid-“vaccine” = suicide jab?

Just a question. If getting a “vax” makes you more susceptible to getting and spreading Covid, isn’t this some kind of suicide?

Meanwhile, Pope Francis says it is suicidal not to get the jab. What?

And if you thought that your having had Covid, and all your care with social distancing, and your masks were enough to please Pope Francis, think again. Pilgrims to Saint Peter’s Basilica in Rome were turned away because they had the wrong style of mask. Masks have basically zero effect on anything anyway. This is just trolling, gaslighting.

Meanwhile, I really hope that the Vatican is not selling what they claim to be appropriate masks. That would remind me of the Lord needing to make a whip of cords so as to rid the Temple of riff-raff.

Anyway, getting an abortion-tainted jab is spiritual suicide. How is it that you will be able to explain to the Lord that you thought the murder of children in the womb for your own supposed benefit was a good thing when He Himself was a baby in the womb of His dear Immaculate Mother for nine months.

Blah Blah Synod™ homosexualist militants demand my compliance: No.

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is synod-on-synodality-logo.png

A demand was delivered to me on 8 January 2022, an apoplectic insistence that I comply immediately with “The Process” of this Hegelian-Rahnerian “revolution in the way we do Church.”

No. I won’t even send in a response saying, “No.” It’ll just be ignored, well, except offer some comments on this blog.

The entirely self-absorbed “let’s-talk-about-ourselves-and-not-ever-about-Jesus” Synod on Synodality, The Blah Blah Synod™, is not about communion, not about participation, not about mission. It’s about attacking doctrine, morality, liturgy, it’s about attacking Christ Jesus and all those who follow Him, His persecuted Little Flock, maginalizing believers, silencing them, stopping them dead.

Let’s take a look at the synodresources.org resources page. The haters of truth hate when the truth about them from themselves is shown to the world, you know, because they hate the truth. Here’s a screen shot:

Wait… What? Let’s click on that militant promotion of same-sex sex by the Holy See. Let’s see…

This group was always condemned right through the decades even by the U.S. Bishops Conference for the groups militant in-your-face promotion of same-sex sex. And now Francis and the Holy See are promoting this demonic execration. Let’s scroll down just a bit on the synodresources.org resources page. Ah yes, a video, an hour and six minutes. It’s fabulous, effervescent:

Meanwhile, Pope Francis praises, yet again, the co-founder of NWM:

Here’s the deal: There is not even ONE mention of Jesus and His teaching, His revelation, His commandments. Not even ONE mention. Not ONE. Well, now, that’s a different church alright, another church… but, actually, no, that’s not any kind of church. What they is exclusive of God. What they are on about is changing doctrine, albeit over time, but that’s the long term goal. They say it. But God is Truth, and God’s Truth, who He is, is not blah blah blah. Even the kids know that.

I will not blah blah blah. I will instead speak of the Eternal Word of the Father, now Incarnate of the Immaculate Virgin Mother of God, who, taking us deadly seriously, laid down His life for us, demanding that we take Him deadly seriously, if we love Him, keeping His commandments. Listen up you freakoid bishops: Jesus will come to judge the living and the dead and the world by fire. And you also He will judge.

Where did the gold, frankincense and myrrh go? Be joyful, Pope Francis. Be joyful.

For his homily on Epiphany, Pope Francis spewed words of disdain for those who believe and worship as the Church has always believed and worshipped, and reductively characterized the magi as those we should imitate in their vacuous desire (in Francis’ mind) for all that is new New NEW NEW! NEW!!! (here). I was going to fisk that out, but it’s all too depressing.

Instead, I’d like to share with you what happened to me, yesterday, January 7, the day after Epiphany. This event took place as I read the Gospel “toward the North”, as they say. The Mass prayers and readings were those of Epiphany. The Gospel was that of the magi falling down in adoration of the Christ Child, offering their gifts.

Firstly, note that whenever I begin Holy Mass, I don’t know what I’m going to preach about. I like to be available to the Holy Spirit even though Pope Francis declares that this would have to be impossible for me, offering the Ancient Rite as I do. Perhaps my lack of preparation is presumption, laziness, careless neglect, even sinful. Certainly my parishioners tell me frequently enough that I’m never at a loss for words, never an unspoken thought kind of thing. But throughout the day before Mass I am in a state of begging the Holy Spirit to instruct me as I preach. I know that I myself have nothing to say, no matter how much I might prepare. I am nothing. I must, as it were, give the mic to the Holy Spirit. I hope that is not blasphemy. Obviously, I am inept at everything I do. But I hope that sometimes something for some souls will help point them to virtue and truth. So…

Whilst reading the Gospel… it’s like my heart – suddenly, with the words about the magi falling down in adoration – it’s like my heart was actually ripped from my chest and it was everything I could do not to fall to my knees. But then, right then, right there, there was a rubric written out right in the very text of the Gospel that the priest reading the Gospel is to fall to his knees in adoration with the magi!

  • (hic genuflectitur)

I did so, so happy to have some seconds to recover after my heart was ripped out of my chest. Rising again, I didn’t want to make a spectacle of myself. I forced myself to continue reading. My voice faltered. I got choked up, I teared up. I was, despite the words of Pope Francis against priests who offer the Ancient Rite of Holy Mass… I was “surprised by the Holy Spirit.” And now I knew what I was going to preach about, namely, what happened to the gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh brought by the magi.

I wasn’t there with the magi. I don’t know what happened to their gifts. I’m just telling you my ♬ experiencemy feelings

When I say that it was like my heart was ripped out of me, what I’m trying to say is that my veiled eyes were less veiled, my heart was made less dull. I was convicted, as it’s said, by the Holy Spirit. I knew myself to be so unworthy to be in the presence of these great men and the total solidarity they had with the Holy Family. But I wasn’t concentrating on myself. It was all about their urgency to adore the Christ Child and then the dire straits they were in to provide those gifts to be used for the members of the Body of Christ, the boys who would be slaughtered in place of Jesus.

Here’s the deal. I think these wise men were Jews descended from Jews who stayed behind in Babylon after the Cyrus sent the Jews back to Jerusalem. I think these wise men knew all the prophesies about the Messiah, the Suffering Servant, the Lamb of God who will save His people and the whole world from sin, the Redeemer, the Savior, the Son of God.

Their gifts mirrored everything in the Jewish Scriptures, that the Divine Christ was to be Priest, Prophet and King. You can categorize all the Scriptures into those three categories. Gold is for the only King who would always be eager to provide for His subjects, Frankincense is for the Priest who would Himself be the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world, myrrh is for a Prophet who would be killed for speaking Truth and should therefore have his body packed with myrrh for burial. But wait. No. He might die, but He was to rise from the dead. So… wait… what?

They already knew the Child King was to be born in Bethlehem, but purposely went out of their way to shake up filthy, wretched, demonic, murderous King Herod, and all the rest of Jerusalem with him. These wise men already knew that they themselves should be killed by Herod for speaking of this new King. They already knew that Herod would want to kill the Child King, a rival King incomparably greater than him. But they knew Herod could never do such a thing. They fully believed it would have to be the babe Himself who would later lay down His life for His people, for the whole world. They were just provoking Herod and all the people on purpose, so that the event wouldn’t go by unnoticed even from the beginning. I love that.

And the gifts? They brought them knowing what would have to happen regardless of whether they provoked Herod and all Jerusalem with him. No matter what, it would soon be known that the Messiah was now born as the one and only King of the Jews. Herod would still try to kill Jesus, the Savior. Herod would still try to kill all the infant boys two years old or under. They knew that before they even started their journey.

Their gifts were brought, it seems to me, for the Holy Family to give to the families of those whose boys would die for Jesus. Those boys wouldn’t grow up to provide for their families, for their then elderly parents, but those families would now have gold to provide for themselves as they became older. The families of the boys being slaughtered by Herod would, unlike Jesus in future times, need the myrrh for packing around the corpses of those infant boys for their burial. The families of the boys, shaken by these events, would offer that frankincense in honor of Jesus who had been among them, in honor of the prayers of the lives of the infants slaughtered for Jesus. Joseph received a dream from an angel about the impending slaughter: “Take the child and His mother and flee to Egypt! Do it! Do it now!” What are they going to do with gold too heavy, frankincense too abundant, myrrh for a day so long in the future when it would not be used by Mary anyway (for she knew her Son would rise from the dead and she would not be at the tomb with Mary of Magdala early Sunday morning). The Holy Family didn’t have caravans of camels, but only a donkey for Mary and her newborn.

But Francis decries such an experience as impossible to the priest who offers the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, of Jesus, in the Ancient Rite. We priests must be rejecting the surprises of the Holy Spirit. We cannot be convicted by the Holy Spirit.

Pope Francis, you are wrong. Why limit the Holy Spirit? Be surprised that the Holy Spirit can also enliven the heart and soul of a wretch like me even whilst offering the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in the Ancient Rite. I am a sinner, a terrible sinner. But the Holy Spirit is more powerful than I am. I hope, Pope Francis, that you do not doubt that the Holy Spirit can work even with me, wretch that I am.

Be joyful, Pope Francis.

Be joyful.


I can’t help myself. It’s just my ♬ feelings ♬ again. But this comes to mind about the rhetoric of Francis when he prejudicially lumps together all those who offer and assist at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in the Ancient Rite:

  • Miss McCarthy replied that Lillian Hellman was “a bad writer, overrated, a dishonest writer.” When Mr. Cavett asked what was “dishonest” about Miss Hellman, Miss McCarthy answered, “Everything.” Miss McCarthy continued, “I once said in an interview that every word she writes is a lie, including ‘and’ and ‘the.'”

Does that sound like I’m criticizing Pope Francis? Yes, I suppose it does. Does he deserve it for the good of his own soul? Yes, I suppose he does. You know, Galatians 2:11 and all that. Be of good heart.

Damned herodian bishops! I choked up, teared up, got upset…

“Get the vaccine!” they shriek, that abortion-tainted vaccine.
“Kill Him! Kill ‘em all! Get me a vaccine! For me! My precious!”

These slimy murderous bishops. All y’all make me sick.

Damned Satanists. Just like Herod.

Judas betraying Jesus with a kiss doesn’t mean I have to slobber all over Him as well.

From a reader about priests and popes who are jabbed and what we are to think and do about that:

  • “Conundrum: How do those who do not wish to receive the vaccine for ‘religious’ reasons explain to their non Catholic (and Catholic) friends when Pope Francis, the Pope Emeritus, their Bishops and their parish priests have all received the vaccine?”

Jesus was really disgusted that Judas betrayed the Son of Man with a kiss. Must we further the disgust of Jesus by also betraying him? People have free will, also priests and popes have free will. Just because they may choose to do something against Jesus in the least of the brethren doesn’t mean we are to take scandal and follow that bad and evil example.

Since when does someone else’s (objective) sin give me permission to sin as well? Leaning on that at the judgment will be a ticket to hell.

Priests and popes are not infallible in committing sin. No.

Using Francis against himself for the TLM. Sardonic humor, incisive truth. Yikes!

Thanks go to the many who collaborated to bring this extremely helpful if utterly sardonic extended bit of humor to light. Even the length is cynically sarcastic, mimicking the useless verbosity of the Bergoglio-esque modus operandi. One is overwhelmed, suffocated, convinced by the massive weight of the horror, the truth, setting one free, ever so humorous, but ever so sad. But I love it. Totally.

https://rorate-caeli.blogspot.com/2021/12/important-studyfrom-traditionis.html

Ultimately, is this useful? Should this actually be used against the insistence of some (arch)episcopal sycophant of Francis? I mean, it would be difficult for, say, a Cardinal Cupich to deny the truths of this humor. But do we set up a precedent? Are we to be “disobedient” with sarcasm?

I mean, I don’t know, let’s figure this out. What is the law when the mens legislatoris (the mind, the intention, of the legislator) is so extremely, excruciatingly clear regardless of what some “It’s-only-the-text-of-the-actual-precept-canon-lawyer” has to say?

I would challenge any (arch)bishop and/or Canon lawyer to read that piece linked above. It’s humorous, but there is a deadly, deadly, deadly serious side to it. The accuracy and completeness and nuance of the citations are stunning, overwhelming. This is academia at it’s best, interpretation of the law at its best. This goes right to the heart of the Church, the Sacred Heart of the Church. This is about the salvation of souls. Sometimes humor speaks more loudly than direct commentary. But this is all direct commentary simultaneously. Yikes! Congratulations to this author, to the translator, to the publisher. Awesome. Great work.

The author, by the way, has been out in the peripheries more than Bergoglio could ever dream of being out in any peripheries. This guy absolutely cares for the sheep and lambs of the Lord’s Little Flock in every way. He gets it. The “authenticity” of this guy makes him someone to be reckoned with. He’s a giant of a Catholic among Catholics. And he has all the degrees in the world. All the street-cred of a true believer.

And after wading though this, I’m quite convinced that this sarcasm is also intended by Francis and +Roche. In other words, for Francis and +Roche, this is what is actually happening:

  • “If you conservative idiots are so stupid as to take Traditionis custodes and the Responses to the Dubia by the CDW seriously, then you’re not even worth taking seriously. Go ahead and hyper-obey, all angry and cynical, which is where we want you to be. But if all y’all are smart enough to catch on to our “no-law-is-a-good-law” way of going about things, then, by all means, we got you where we want you. Go ahead and do whatever you want with the TLM. Celebrate it all the time. We don’t care. That’s not the point. What we want is for you to ignore all law, to ignore the Church, to get into the habit of ignoring any Pope who comes along in the future. We are baiting you, and you have taken the bait. Hahahahaha!”

But what Francis and +Roche don’t understand is that true believers have the wisdom to see through the demonic cynicism. We will remain believers. We will continue to follow all just laws, all just precepts. We will continue to follow Jesus. We won’t be doing any demon idol worship. And Jesus has the last laugh as we use Francis and +Roche against themselves and still remain with Jesus. :-)

So, just to be clear: There is no TLM or any Sacrament or Sacramental of the Ancient Rite which is either invalid or illicit. We know the mens legislatoris, diabolically cynical as it might be. It’s all gaslighting. To them, it’s humorous. But I’ll remain deadly serious about the salvation of souls with Jesus, who was absolutely deadly serious.

Can you imagine saying Holy Mass on the front lines for the guys and putting the demon-idol Pachamama in front of them? I can’t. I won’t. The demonic hierarchy can go to their own place. I will not follow. I will remain with Jesus, by His grace, in His joy.

Disobedience to Traditionis custodes and Dubia: interdicts and other penalties

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

Some notes on terminology:

  • “animosities” – This generally refers to riling people’s emotions to such a point that their emotions rule their reasoning capacities. We would normally call this inciting prejudice. However, this wouldn’t be an evil if it were to be directed at someone who, until he absolutely repented, couldn’t be trusted for anything whatsoever, such as Stalin, Hitler, Pol Pot, Mao. So, the question is as to whether there is that which, in the law itself, helps us to distinguish what kind of animosity it is with which we’re dealing.
  • “hatred” – “In the words of the Scriptures, “I loved Jacob, but I rejected Esau” (Romans 9:13). God hates the sin and the sinner in such manner that He provides all that is needed for the sinner to repent and stop the sin, stop being a sinner, now being loved. Hatred can be a tool of love. So, the question is as to whether there is that which, in the law itself, helps us to distinguish what kind of hatred it is with which we’re dealing.

Distinguishing factors in the law:

Whenever we find a subordinating conjunction, we must needs pay attention, as it promises to make the necessary distinction for us. We find the legally significant word – “because” – in this law. Thus: “BECAUSE of some act of power or ecclesiastical ministry or provokes subjects to disobey them.”

The punishment to be imposed irregardless of the simple fact of inciting animosities or hatred or to also to provoke disobedience in those who are subject to such acts of power or ecclesiastical ministry is, however, subject to the veracity of “some act of power or ecclesiastical ministry” actually being legitimate, that is, lawful, and does not issue from someone acting ultra vires, that is, beyond their powers, beyond their lawful capacities. Did Pope or Prefect or some subsequent bishop anywhere in the world act ultra vires, beyond their powers?

Penalties imposed:

Once it is decided by an ecclesiastical court that no one was acting ultra vires and that the alleged perpetrator is actually guilty of a crime before God and man, then “an interdict or other just penalties” are to be imposed.

As even Wikipedia points out, “an interdict today has the effect of forbidding the person concerned to celebrate or receive any of the sacraments, including the Eucharist, or to celebrate the sacramentals.” That can be tantamount to condemning someone to hell. And I have always said that a “just penalty” would include whatever comes to the imagination of the powers that be, including burning at the stake.

Mind you, for many decades untold numbers of priests have NOT been put under interdict – as that might involve discovery on both sides as appeals are made – but rather priests have simply been marginalized with no due process and with no court at all. And anyway, how do you make an appeal when everyone on up the ladder have already been acting ultra vires on the very point under contention?

So, priests simply trying to do the right thing have been taken out of assignments, their living quarters taken away, having their pay cut, then their insurance cut, and then a request for the priest’s dismissal from the clerical state is made to the Holy See because the cleric is a “liability.” That’s granted, though usually with a fake ultimatum: Either you will spend the rest of your life in a “treatment center” for nothing that needs treatment (fidelity to Christ and the legitimate authority of the Church) or you will be dismissed from the clerical state. Just like that.

Oh, and that picture at the top? That’s the chopping block and axe used for the decapitation of Saint Thomas More in the most civilized of societies, of course. “Most civilized” always refers to the most blood-thirsty.

Anyway, back to any priest thinking about disobedience to Traditionis custodes and to the “legislation” of the answers to the CDW Dubia. I always go back to Aquinas on the law: If a law is unjust, is evil, it is therefore not a law, and is not to be obeyed or disobeyed, but ignored, for it is nothing. Of course, no sycophantic powers that be are going to listen to Aquinas, or Natural Law, or Divine Law, or Canon Law. No, they’re just going to make you feel their power, like Judas demonstrated his “power” over Jesus.

We can pray that bishops invoke Canon 87 in favor of the salvation of souls. One would think that this is what it’s all about, right?

Do I think that Pope Francis and the Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship (CDW) are acting ultra vires with Traditionis custodes and the Dubia responses? Yes. I’ve written on this quite extensively. I think these documents of Traditionis custodes and the Dubia reponses are an insult to Christ Jesus and His Sacrifice of the Mass and that, in this case, the underlying evil is such that it colors any obedience to the unjust law, such that one is complicit in the underlying evil.

By the by, there are other things

  • I’m not going to give absolution to someone who has no repentance, having them receive Holy Communion in the state of mortal sin. That’s called sollicitation to sin, an automatic excommunication for a priest hearing confessions. I’m not going to do it. Any demand that I do such a horrible thing is illegitimate, acting ultra vires. I’m just going to ignore that.
  • I’m not going to participate in the Synod on Synodality. I’ll have nothing to do with New Ways Ministries other than to tell them that they must repent. That’s it. They know the doctrine and morality of the Church. They know the Sacred Scriptures. The Holy See gives them a stage to promote their horror. To demand that I participate in this is acting ultra vires. I’m just going to ignore that. — et cetera, almost ad infinitum

As Thomas More said at the end of the trial by which he was unjustly condemned, it wasn’t because of his not taking any oath that he condemned, but rather, and simply, it was because of the marriage. And in this case, with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, we are dealing with the marriage of Christ and His Immaculate Bride, the Church, with the consecrations being His wedding vows. But the response I’ve heard right through the decades is that we are NOT to use our reason and our faith, but we are instead to have Jesus’ Truth filtered for us by brave theologians. Pfft.

This isn’t rocket science. Insulting Jesus is bad and evil and I’m not going there. No discussion.

What I have done here is to invoke the legitimacy of Galatians 2:11:

  • “When Cephas came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he stood condemned.”

Invoking Galatians 2:11 is a supreme act of charity and justice and mercy. Am I to be condemned for that? Jesus will also have something to say about any powers that be acting ultra vires.

I don’t care about unjust penalties in this life, whatever the cost. I want to go to heaven.

Disobeying Traditionis custodes and Dubia legislation because theology is wrong?

You have heard that it was said that one cannot at all disobey a precept in it’s praxis if what is to be done is at least amoral, not relevant to morality, even though the mere reasons given for that precept by the legislator are in and of themselves heretical, blasphemous, demonic even.

Let’s take an example, the demand of offering the Ancient Rite of the Holy Mass in some sewer because the precept has it that the Ancient Rite of Holy Mass has NOTHING to do with the life of the parish and therefore it can not be offered in any parish church. Offering the Holy Mass correctly and with reverence, albeit in a weird place, like the bunk of a barracks in Auschwitz, is certainly at least amoral, though in the circumstances I would say it is most laudable, heroic. But not to offer the best to our Lord on His Altar in His Church when you otherwise could is a grave sin of omission of reverence due to our Lord and to His Holy Sacrifice.

And I cannot be silent about the statement publicized throughout the world that the Holy Sacrifice has NOTHING to do with the life of the parish, and that’s why it’s thrown out, why Jesus is thrown out. That statement, that heresy, that blasphemy, that diabolical interference, is evil, and is part and parcel with the pragmatic aspect of the precept. The two are intertwined. One cannot follow the precept and not fall into heresy, blasphemy and diabolical horror.

  • Non serviam. Hier stehe ich. Ich kann nicht anders. Gott helfe mir.

I know, I know. I’m being ironic, sarcastic. But it’s well deserved. It falls on them.

CDW +Arthur Roche: Stop licking fake wounds! [Bonus: Jesus in the rains of Birmingham]

Traditiones custodes has it that if the Ancient Rite of the Sacrifice of the Mass is to take place, it cannot happen on an altar in a parish church, insisting that Jesus is to be thrown out bodily, literally. Then, in the recent answer to the first “Dubia” about this hatred of Jesus, there is an insistence not only on throwing Jesus out of His own church, but that there can be no mention even in a parish bulletin that the Ancient Rite, the Last Supper united with Calvary, is taking place somewhere in the parish territory. There is a reason given: because Jesus in His Holy Sacrifice has nothing to do with the life of the parish. That’s, like, demonic, blasphemous, is it not?

Archbishop Arthur Roche the other day commented on those Dubia comments to the National Catholic Register, saying that “the challenge is to get on with it without licking one’s wounds when no one has been injured.”

The Archbishop dares to mock God Himself. Not one lamb of Jesus’ Little Flock could possibly care less about being mocked by the Archbishop. What we don’t like is that JESUS HAS BEEN WOUNDED, INJURED. We don’t want Jesus to be mocked and reviled and mistreated. But that Jesus is marginalized, discriminated against, called irrelevant to the life of the parish is what is hotly desired by the Archbishop, who doesn’t, who cannot see Jesus.

G.A. Studdert-Kennedy’s poem of long ago effectively mocks the Archbishop today, with a rejection of that effeminate softness that cannot bear to witness Jesus’ wounds and injuries:

When Jesus Came to Birmingham

When Jesus came to Golgotha, they hanged Him on a tree,
They drove great nails through hands and feet, and made a Calvary;
They crowned Him with a crown of thorns, red were His wounds and deep,
For those were crude and cruel days, and human flesh was cheap.

When Jesus came to Birmingham, they simply passed Him by.
They would not hurt a hair of Him, they only let Him die;
For men had grown more tender, and they would not give Him pain,
They only just passed down the street, and left Him in the rain.

Still Jesus cried, ‘Forgive them, for they know not what they do, ‘
And still it rained the winter rain that drenched Him through and through;
The crowds went home and left the streets without a soul to see,
And Jesus crouched against a wall, and cried for Calvary.

////////////// I stand, we stand in solidarity with Jesus. We’re happy to be crouching against a wall in the winter rains, drenched through and through, all of crying for Calvary, and the Archbishop simply shrieking: Depart you followers of Jesus, the Pachamama and New Ways Ministries liturgies are with me! And we calmly respond: “Cease! The Sacred Heart of Jesus is with me!”

  • “When Cephas came to Antioch, I opposed him to his face, because he stood condemned.” – Galatians 2:11

I think that citation of Saint Paul is still permitted by divine mandate, whatever the most tender entitled snowflakes otherwise think in the Roman Curia. Get out your bibles and look it up.

But I’m not done with my rant yet. It’s Christmas. And we’re passing Jesus in the manger, and we don’t hear the angels singing, we don’t even notice Him there in the manger, except to say, with some cynicism we hope is not too deeply ingrained: “How cute!” And then we go get “vaccine” jabs that were researched, developed, tested on the image of Jesus in the womb, the least of the brethren. The Pope and his minions, the faithless bishops, the vast majority, almost 100%, praise the abortion-tainted “vaccines”, even require them, even use the jab as a requirement to give or get the Sacraments. “Kill Jesus to get Jesus in the Sacraments.” And when they are done with the babies, they throw their corpses against a wall in the winter rains to be washed into a sewer.

You think this is mean to say this on Christmas morning? No, no. It is what brings us joy, Christmas joy, joy in the Holy Spirit, joy for seeing that God knew what he was getting into upon this earth and was born amongst us anyway, knowing what we would do to Him for having too much goodness, too much kindness, too much truth. Thank you, Jesus, for taking us seriously, deadly seriously. Thank you for being born during the reign of terror of Herod, for going into exile in an enemy country, for then being crucified for us, for not caring about all that violence, but with joy just setting out to get the job done, to “get on with it” (as +Roche said) with enthusiasm, gladly paying the price of our redemption, taking on the suffering we deserve for sin, standing in our place, Innocent for the guilty, having the right in His own justice to have mercy on us. And He does. And He intended this from the first moment of His conception, with joy. He intended this in the manger, with joy. He intended this on the Cross, with joy.

That Jesus would have joy in bringing us to heaven is a great joy. Thank you, Jesus, for being borne amongst us so as to have us be borne into heaven where you desire to give us as a gift to our heavenly Father. Amen.

Oh, and that picture at the top? That’s Herod in his party palace moments before having John the Baptist’s head cut off for John’s having witnessed to Jesus as the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world. There’s an analogy in there somewhere methinks.

Vatican vax mandate: new super-green-pass

This image has an empty alt attribute; its file name is pope-francis-parrot.png
  • Vatican employees now required to be vaxxed or COVID-recovered, no negative test-to-work option. The Vatican says receiving an abortion-tainted shot that does not stop viral transmission is an ‘act of love.’ […] The new super green pass has taken out the option for someone who has tested negative for COVID to access places with green pass requirements. This means that only the jabbed or the recently recovered will be able to have full access to establishments in Italy, and now the Vatican.”

Francis to the world’s bishops, you know, the bishops of the world, you know, to the worldly bishops: “Be my parrot!” I’m guessing it won’t be long before Francis will mandate the bishops to mandate all priests.

As for me, I could not possibly care less about what Francis says about his desires to inject abortion tainted “vaccines” into everyone. I want to go to heaven. The way to go to heaven is to stand in solidarity with the least of the brethren in the womb. I’m not better than them. I’m not going to kill them to get a “vaccine.” Jesus said of them: what you have done to the least of them you have done to me. I stand in solidarity with Jesus. I’m not getting jabbed.

This is so cynical of Pope Francis to do this moments before Christmas celebrations. On the first eve before Jesus’ birth, Jesus was… wait for it… still in the womb of Mary, at just the right age to be removed from her womb, Jesus still alive, but then to have his living organs ripped out to be researched, developed and tested to the end of creating “vaccines”, killing Jesus. “What you have done to the least of these…”

I’m soooo afraid of the dubious Dubia! Not. Breaking the “It’s not up-to-date” clock.

You have heard that it was said that a “Freudian slip” appears in the closing sentence of the recent incredibly cruel and petty truly hateful dubious Dubia published the other day. However, that would be out of character for such profoundly cultured giants in the history of entitled will-to-power. I think this is simply more mocking of Christ’s Little Flock:

  • “From the offices of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, 4 December 2021, on the 58th anniversary of the promulgation of the Constitution on the Scared Liturgy Sacrosanctum Concilium. — ✠ Arthur Roche – Prefect

Bunch of self-absorbed Promethean Pelagian trolls, are they not? The thing is, the CDW otherwise consistently insists on mocking that Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy of the Second Vatican Council, shrieking that any citation of it (retain Latin, retain chant, retain ad orientem…) is anachronistic, invalid, as it is only the weirdnesses subsequent to the Council until today (Clowns, Pachamama usurpation of Jesus’ Altar, no blessings in the Book of Blessings, etc.) that can legitimately be desired by the faithful. Yes, little Arthur says: “The very Liturgy is scared of us! We’re in power! Feel our power!”

Meanwhile, the Lex orandi, the Law of Prayer, which is precisely the very Sacrifice of Jesus at the Last Supper united with Calvary – My Body betrayed for you in Sacrifice, my Blood poured out for you in Sacrifice – is defined in that manner, note well, by the accompanying letter to Traditionis custodes, with its citation of Pope Benedict to that effect. That Lex orandi is rejected for the Ancient Rite, and therefore for all rites, including the Novus Ordo. That the Ancient Rite is not any kind of expression at all of the Latin Rite is as much to say that the Ancient Rite is not at all any kind of expression of the Sacrifice of Jesus at the Last Supper united with Calvary. That’s rank heresy, blasphemy.

+Roche is saying that it is Jesus Himself who should be scared, since it is God Himself, the Word Incarnate, laying down His life for us, the Innocent for the guilty, who is being rejected, forbidden, marginalized beyond any peripheries, all by way of the power of +Roach and Pope Francis. Well, Jesus is not scared. He stays on the Cross:

I’ll tell you who should be scared. It should be +Roche and Pope Francis who should be scared to go before the judgment and meet up with the Immaculate Conception holding Jesus. This will be the judgment, will it not? Looking into her eyes?

Meanwhile, Jesus and His Sacrifice are never not-up-to-date, never out-of-date, are never needing to get-with-the-times. Jesus said that when He is lifted up on the Cross, He will draw all to Himself of all times and places, men of every nation, tribe, people, race, language, whatever. Jesus melts the clocks. He draws all into that one hour of our redemption, please God also of our salvation. With Jesus, ever Ancient, ever New, we are always up-to-date, in the time and place where Divine Providence has placed us, that is, always next to dearest Immaculate Mary always next to Jesus under the Cross.

To sum up: In the same way that that Jesus’ Sacrifice, which happened so long ago, is dismissed as irrelevant to the life of the parish, as they say, this is the same way that original sin is dismissed as having any relevance to us today, and is the same way that the importance of the purposed murder of babies ripped from the womb to get their living organs for research, development and testing of “vaccines” for the bottom line of Big Pharma is irrelevant to any moral decision making. Making original sin and redemption and any sin irrelevant because time has gone by is demonic.

Dearest Jesus, thank you for making time as your creation which you hold in your hands. Thank you for bringing us together across time. Thank you for drawing us to yourself, melting those clocks. Thank you for making the likes of +Roche and Pope Francis scared of you, so that they might have the opportunity to be converted to you by your grace. Let them put their fingers into the nail-prints, let them put their hands into your side, your Heart. Let them discover that you are not irrelevant in your Sacrifice, dear Jesus. Let them say, “My Lord and my God,” and believe it by way of your timeless grace. And thank you, Jesus, for making us fearless, you who have insisted so many times: “Do not fear!” “Be not afraid!” And I’m not afraid, we’re not afraid, dear Jesus, thanks to you. Your Little Flock takes consolation that you will come to judge the living and the dead and the world by fire. Amen.

“I know nothing of Canon Law.” “You’re lying, because you’re right about the Dubia.” And he was vindicated.

CDW Vatikan Politburo criminalizes TLM Mass times in church bulletins. What we do…

Pope Francis in conjunction with the Congregation for Divine Worship apparently just made it a criminal offense to advertise Mass times for the TLM in any parish bulletin. I say criminal because, of course, just about any priest (there are exceptions) just about anywhere (there are exceptions) who would do that would immediately be removed from all priestly duties, have his salary and insurance and living quarters ripped away from him, and be set on an involuntary path to be laicized as a liability to the church and the world. This kind of thing has happened hundreds, thousands of times over the decades, and for much less than advertising Mass times.

Well, here’s the deal: I haven’t had a parish bulletin since the beginning of 2020, since the beginning of Covid lockdowns, when our governor of the State of North Carolina decided that he was not only an executor, but also a dictator-legislator who could impose draconian penalties on churches for meeting in church during times of Covid even while with entirely cynical discrimination he was giving State Liquor Stores a pass. If I had a church bulletin they would bring that to court as proof to have me remanded to prison. After all, I had Holy Mass in church during their stupid lockdowns, and the doors were unlocked!

Well, those times have receded a bit, but we still can’t have a church bulletin, because – gasp! – what if I were to advertise TLM Mass times in the bulletin? The politburo at the CDW in the Holy See would come down hard and impose all manner of increasingly severe penalties. I mean, do they get kickbacks from George Soros for this kind of pettiness? It’s truly what you would expect from some communist mayor of whatever small town in Nicaragua. I know, because I was there in the mid-1980s. So, so petty.

People have been asking about Christmas Mass times. I honestly don’t know what to say. If I speak about Mass times am I breaking the “spirit” of the law, going against the “vision” of Pope Francis? Am I to have my throat slit as a priest by the powers that be. Soooo…. soooo petty.

We simply don’t have a parish bulletin. :-)

Insane CDW anti-Christ dubia responses? But my parish does this! Hahahahaha!

Above, at Holy Redeemer very early Sunday mornings.

Below, just a bit later, at Prince of Peace:

For those readers who are “stunned” at my appraisal of the CDW’s efforts, and there are some ecclesiastics who are, as they say, “stunned”, I say this: the dubia answers state that Jesus’ Holy Sacrifice has NOTHING to do with the life of the parish. And that, my friends, is not just evil, but demonic. Objectively, it’s blasphemy, objectively, a mortal sin of scandal over against the Lord’s Little Flock.

Imagine, at the last judgment, with Jesus, the Lamb of God who takes away the sins of the world, with His wounds still in His hands and feet and side, His Heart, in front of you, and you screaming that Jesus is irrelevant, that only you are important, even as you run into hell: feel the POWER!

Here’s the deal, in this tiniest of all parishes in North America, we who are nothing, all agree with this:

  • Credo in unum Deum, Patrem omnipotentem, factorem caeli et terrae, visibilium omnium, et invisibilium. Et in unum Dominum Jesum Christum, Filium Dei unigenitum. Et ex Patre natum ante omnia saecula. Deum de Deo, Lumen de lumine, Deum verum de Deo vero. Genitum, non factum, consubstantialem Patri: per quem omnia facta sunt. Qui propter nos homines, et propter nostram salutem descendit de caelis. Et incarnatus est de Spiritu Sancto ex Maria Virgine: Et homo factus est. Crucifixus etiam pro nobis: sub Pontio Pilato passus, et sepultus est. Et resurrexit tertia die, secundum Scripturas. Et ascendit in caelum: sedet ad dexteram Patris. Et iterum venturus est cum gloria, judicare vivos et mortuos: cuius regni non erit finis. Et in Spiritum Sanctum, Dominum, et vivificantem: qui ex Patre Filioque procedit. Qui cum Patre et Filio simul adoratur, et conglorificatur: qui locutus est per Prophetas. Et unam sanctam catholicam et apostolicam Ecclesiam. Confiteor unum baptisma in remissionem peccatorum. Et exspecto resurrectionem mortuorum. Et vitam venturi saeculi. Amen.

And… and… we’re belligerent about it, entrenched, rigid. [gasp!]

CDW Dubia: Jesus isn’t part of the parish

  • “The Motu Proprio Traditionis custodes in art. 3 § 2 requests that the Bishop, in dioceses where up to now there has been the presence of one or more groups celebrating according to the Missal prior to the reform of 1970, ‘designate one or more locations where the faithful adherents of these groups may gather for the Eucharistic celebration (not however in the parochial churches and without the erection of new personal parishes)’. The exclusion of the parish church is intended to affirm that the celebration of the Eucharist according to the previous rite, being a concession limited to these groups, is not part of the ordinary life of the parish community.” (CDW Dubia answer)

So, Jesus’ Sacrifice means nothing whatsoever to the life of the parish. Nothing. God-Incarnate laying down His life for us, the Innocent for the guilty, so that He might have the right in His own justice to have mercy on us, to bring us to life by grace in this world, grace which will turn into glory forever in eternal life… that means NOTHING to the life of the parish? Really?

You lost me there Pope Francis, and whatever henchmen at the CDW. You lost me there.

I stand with Jesus. Not with you, you creepy dark souls. You reject Jesus who is the Way, the Truth and the Life. You lead us to hell, you liars, dead men running to eternal death. I’m not with you. I remain with Jesus. He is my life. He is the life of my parish. Do whatever the hell you want to take out your little vengeance on me now, you idiots. Don’t you realize you only bring me, us, to greater faith? Jesus wins. Jesus always wins.

Right this second I’m going to up the parish church to offer the TLM that you hate so much.

  • “But Father George! Father George! They’re just talking about progressivist ideological symbolism as the life of the community, not about Jesus! Be nice, Father George!”

Sure, what they’ve done is reduce Jesus to ideological symbolism to be manipulated for raw power, just another unit to be disregarded in Hegelian dialectic of Rahnerian pantheism. That’s it. I want nothing to do with their Dubia and their penalties, their blah-blah-blah so very hateful of God, neighbor and themselves (objectively speaking, of course). Too creepy. Too dark.

CDW’s head-on collision with TLM: Humor

The henchmen of Pope Francis, all really very nice people, incredibly nice – so nice that it’s overwhelming: nice nice nice nice nice!!! – these henchmen claim that they own The Bridge, Christ Jesus, The Bridge between heaven and earth, and claim that they own The Pontifex, Christ Jesus, The Bridge Builder, who rightly called Himself The Way, and even claim that the Sacrifice of the Mass, the Last Supper united with Calvary, is not an expression whatsoever of the Roman Rite [absolutely a statement of its invalidity in their eyes]… these henchmen of Pope Francis feel entitled with all their claims to drive all over the Way they claim they own, feel entitled not to pay attention to anyone on The Bridge, feel entitled to smash into anyone in their way, feel entitled to FEEL THE POWER, these henchmen of Pope Francis, I say, are, instead, similar to the gnat-like idiot-car in the video above coming up against a real vehicle, you know, the TLM. Guess who wins in the end? See the video above. Rather humorous, really.

Anyway, here’s the deal: I’m a priest and I’m actually extremely busy doing priest-stuff, providing people the sacraments and the benefit of the sacramentals. I had an exhaustive day yesterday (18 December, 2021) sprinting about in multiple counties, getting groceries for the elderly, multiple sessions of Confessions, Holy Mass, lots of sacramental work altogether. I dropped after getting home from the church late at night…

So, I’m so very sorry. I apologize. I didn’t get a chance to begin to start to study any official statements from the CDW or any chance after that would-be study to begin to start to consider any official statements from the CDW. But I did play some YouTube commentaries about the CDW aggression over the blue-tooth speakers of Sassy the Subaru while I raced about all over WNC. My listening was often cut because of being out of WiFi range in the back ridges of these Blue Ridge, Smoky Mountains. So, what the CDW did, whatever that is, is all a rumor to me right now.

If there is any truth to the commentary, what the CDW has done is to make for a head-on collision with the letter I received from my bishop just yesterday. He sent it before the CDW statement was unleashed to the world over the internet. My bishop’s letter was annulled by the CDW even before he sent it. Obviously, the bishops were not consulted by the CDW.

If there is any truth to the commentary, I have plenty of questions, particularly about the CDW annulling the universal law of the Church (Canon Law), stomping on the rights of priests regarding the Holy Sacrifice, that is, without this smackdown being approved in forma specifica by the Holy Father. I have heard of plenty of cases over many decades in the past where this lack of specific approval to individual points annulled the legal force of whatever idiotic decree, especially draconian life-long penalties. I’m no Canon lawyer, but something seems rotten somewhere. We need some honest Canon lawyer. And I don’t just mean a traddy. Too many “traditionalists” are mere panderers. We’ve seen that recently. Way too many. They go on something like this: “Yes, well, it’s not approved quite exactly correctly but we don’t want to talk about that because we want to be nice and maybe they’ll be nice to us in return so I won’t really give you honest legal commentary but hide the truth from ye all, you know, to be nice.” I don’t want that. This is too important. Just the facts. True men of Tradition are NOT afraid to speak the facts. True men of Tradition don’t play politics with the Sacrifice of the Mass. I think Taylor Marshall’s term for this is fake-traddies playing “patty-cake” with the enemies of the Church. Brutal, but true.

Also, if the commentary has any truth to it, what was done seems maliciously set on purposely causing a situation that can be called “odious.” That’s a technical term, actually. If some bit of disciplinary legislation even from the supreme legislator (the Pope) is odious to the faithful (and I will ask the faithful over the next couple of weeks), then the bishop has full rights to exercise Canon 87 in favor of the salvation of souls. But the bishops have to be up to the task for the sake of the salvation of souls. That’s what the Church is supposed to be all about, right? The. Salvation. Of. Souls. In the video above, what this would mean is that our friend in the truck would just push the idiot-car right off The Bridge altogether and keep moving. Canon 87. But, of course, it is already threatened that there will another idiot-car, and another, annoying, but perhaps effective when there are dozens of idiot-cars, thousands, millions… But…

But… No. That’s when the truck revs up a bit. I’m sure you understand the analogy. Christ Jesus and His Sacrifice will not be killed off a second time. Jesus, once risen from the dead, will never die again.

I think I have too much fun. It’s just that I already know that Christ Jesus, Divine Son of the Immaculate Conception, Divine Son of our dearest, dearest Mother, has conquered. And He will come to judge the living and the dead and the world by fire, judge those who are occupied with the cura animarum, who are tasked with the salvation of souls, who are tasked with not insulting the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

Today, I will have no time to read anything from the CDW. I’m literally sprinting from now until nightfall with actual priestly things to do: Adoration, Confessions, Masses, Communion Calls, Last Rites, over multiple counties, in multiple churches, in people’s homes, in nursing homes…

Also, I refuse to have my joy in Christ Jesus dragged down by anyone, much less anyone who is set on insulting the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, who is set on insulting Christ’s own priests. Is that what they are doing? Eventually in these next weeks I’ll be able to read what the CDW has written, I guess, somewhere on the internet.

But lemme tell you: Christ Jesus, the High Priest, takes note when His Sacrifice is smacked down, and when His own priests are smacked down by those who should know better. Sure, His priests might be thrown into dumpsters all around the world, but then they get to go to heaven. Jesus always wins. Again, I refuse to have my joy in Christ Jesus dragged down by anyone.

BTW: It seems to me that when it comes to Holy Mass, anything that is done is done within an ecumenical Council, not by way of rumors on the internet. When does all this take effect? Now? When the Acts of the Apostolic See are published? The CDW has already amended the 16 July 2021 motu proprio of Pope Francis. Who’s the legislator? What is this legislation? What?

Meanwhile, I’ll be doing my best to run away from the fake-liturgical-police:

The one thing the haters don’t have at all is humor. They are joyless, odious. That cannot be the case with those who remain with the Sacrifice of Jesus. No. Let us retain our joy in the Holy Spirit. Jesus has conquered. Let’s stand with Him in His trials. Let’s hear with great joy from the Eternal Judge: “Enter into the joy…”
