Hey! I get it! Bishop Douglas Crosby says “vaccines are not mandatory.” But, let’s take a closer look. It’s not what you think:
He says “vaccines are not mandatory at this time“, which means that vaccines will quickly become mandatory as declared by the bishop.
“I strongly encourage all clergy… to get the […] vaccines as soon as possible if they have not already done so.” Don’t forget that word, though: “I strongly encourage all clergy […] to get the necessary vaccines.” That word “necessary” means “necessary.” His “at this time” (a promised merely temporary time to learn to sin with him) will necessarily morph to “get it now or else.”
He cites Pope Francis’ use of the word “imperative,” which underlines “necessary” and linguistically calls to mind a “command”. Pope Francis has three times actively mandated forced vaccines in Vatican City, on his trip to Iraq, and now on his trip to Slovakia, where he is not exhorting but actually EXTORTING people to get the fake “vaccine” by refusing them entrance to Holy Mass and access to Holy Communion if they cannot prove they have received the “vaccine.” This action that is presented in such fashion is straight out of hell. So, hell no.
Bishop Doug also actively extorts his clergy who desire to provide the sacraments for Jesus’ Little Flock. Bishop Doug says that it is “imperative that [priests] get fully vaccinated,” “in order that” (now a mandatory condition) in order to celebrate Mass and the other Sacraments, so that these non-vax priests may [in context read: will] “not be permitted to hospitals and nursing homes” etc. In other words, no Mass, no Confessions, no Last Rites, no Baptisms, and so on.
He closes by brow-beating with the words “morally obligated.” Pope Francis did this by having it that those not getting the “vaccines” are tantamount to being murderers in their lack of concern. My question is about concern for the babies murdered for the “vaccines.”
This is all straight out of hell. Here in these USA, Cardinal Cupich is pushing for “vaccines”. It seems no one cares if you have ultra-strong natural antibodies, only that you got the injection. Is this not about viciously and falsely taking the “moral high ground” with Satan, the father of lies and a murderer from the beginning? Is it not about about demonic power, feelings of power. Such feelings will disappear the very nanosecond one enters hell, you know, if they are guilty before God. I cannot judge these bishops. Maybe they are incredibly ignorant, or are not feeling well. What do I know? Nothing. But we can and we much judge what is presented exteriorly by anyone. I judge what is presented exteriorly by these bishops, including the bishop of Rome, as being straight out of hell.
Yes, but… it’s complicated… but not really… I’ve been offering Sunday scheduled parish Masses in the parish church with the intention of the Masses for Pope Francis being announced, you know, publicly, even in the form of Mass called the TLM, you know, after 16 July 2021. Yes, I’m still a papist, but… it’s complicated… but not really…
All of us together will stand before Him whom we have all pierced, men of every tribe and tongue and people and nation. All of us deserve hell because of original sin and, all things being equal, our own rubbish sin. Don’t ever, ever put priests or any bishops, including the bishop of Rome, the Supreme Pontiff, on some sort of pedestal constituted by ultramontanist exclamations that because of ordination. Peter (only much later), Saint Peter, denied the Christ our God three times after having spent, mind you, 24/7/365 with Jesus Himself, for three years.
Did Pope Francis effectively deny Jesus on 27 October 2019 when he caused to be enthroned the demon-idol Pachamama on the Papal Altar of Saint Peter’s Basilica which altar above the relics of Saint Peter is consecrated for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass? Yes, he did.
Did Pope Francis effectively deny Jesus on 16 July 2021 when he caused an immemorial rite of Holy Mass providing us with the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity to be dethroned from consecrated altars in consecrated churches and wrongfully, objectively sinfully effectively thrown into a river much as the demon-idol Pachamama was thrown into the Tiber River ever so justifiably by Alexander Tschugguel? Yes, he did.
Did Pope Francis deny the Body of Christ in innumerable ways with forced ambiguity and bullying causing horrific scandal to the demise of innumberable souls? Yes, he did.
Can he turn around and repent as did Peter? Yes, he can. So, it is for us to also pray for him that he does repent. If we write off his soul, assisting him to go to hell, we also send ourselves to hell, for in claiming that it is impossible for anyone to be saved we say that sin is more powerful than our Redemption in Christ Jesus, more powerful than any salvation in Christ Jesus to which, all things being equal, we might just assent in Jesus’ grace. So, I pray for Pope Francis, I mention his name at Holy Mass, and, like I say, I offer Mass for him, for his conversion.
If you pray for Pope Francis that means that you absolutely agree with every last private thought and flatulence of his entirely unrepeatable non-universal person. /// No, that’s stupid. That would be to say that that when we ask for Immaculate Mary’s intercession – Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us SINNERS – that Mary instead is actually complicit in our sin, you know, because she prayed for us. To hold that is rather demonic.
If you pray for Pope Francis that means that you actually think that he is a valid reigning Supreme Pontiff, the Successor of Saint Peter. /// No, that’s not true either. I just withhold judgement, though not in the sense of “Who am I to judge”, but rather because I wasn’t in the room when any electioneering, if any, was going on, something that would, in fact, cancel any would-be validity of any positive outcome for that person in any conclave. Etc., etc., etc. Even if he is an anti-Pope, and malicious on top of that, all the more he needs conversion, right? And that conversion, wrought by sanctifying grace, for total contrition, much like that of Peter, would give great glory to God. I have no idea whether Pope Francis is actually any kind of successor to Pope Benedict, or whether Pope Benedict is still Pope. I just don’t know. All the more do we need to pray.
I have never even once defended anything evil or ambiguous of Pope Francis. Indeed, I’ve attacked those things very openly. I’m no ultramontanist. If I say that he does objectively very evil things, that is not to judge him subjectively, as he is before God. No. I don’t have the beatific vision, the Standard of Goodness, if you will. Therefore, how can I know where he personally stands before God. You don’t have the beatific vision either. Cynicism and bitterness cause one to combine what we see presented on the outside with what is going on inside someone’s soul. That means that we are exasperated to the point of giving up. And that is bad and evil for us.
Please God, I will be a good son of the Church, a Catholic, believing, participating in the sacraments until I die and go before Jesus. Please God that Jesus and His Blessed Mother will have mercy on my wretched soul and allow me to be welcomed into heaven by the souls I have been able to assist through the years to leave purgatory and enter heaven. Please God I will be able to thank Jesus and Mary in heaven, rejoicing also that there are many souls in heaven who converted in their dying breath, even without the sacraments, and, although in purgatory until the end of the world, will also enter into heaven. Yes. So… Hail Mary…
[[ To put it simply: to be a papist is not to engage in papolatry, or better, to engage in papolatry is not only not to be papist, but it is to engage in self-promotion. ]]
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?…
Father Dana is dying of ALS. He’s a friend of friends for me, and I met him a number of times here in North Carolina. What a great priest. Read his cry from the heart by clicking on “Continue reading” above. Hail Mary…
When some of my own unrepeatable circumstances weigh on me, I think of other priests such as Father Dana. His very life of profound faith in the midst of impossible circumstances – his very life now on what will be his death bed being an act of intercession for the entire Church – is a great encouragement to me.
Let’s begin this screed here in the Diocese of Charlotte, NC, USA, with our Vicar General’s email sent out late Saturday night [the day after, 17 July, 2021]. It contained the above PDF from the Most Reverend Bishop. We are now to “begin to study” [indefinite time frame] and only then will we “being to consider” [a consecutive indefinite time frame]. That refers to quite a long space of time, which is prudent, given the weighty but oft contradictory commentary of Canon lawyers, bishops and cardinals, with wildly different and contradictory applications right throughout the world.
This already testifies to the stunningly ambiguous and imprecise nature of both the “Letter” of Pope Francis and the “Motu proprio”. This allows for lots of wiggle room, say, loopholes. In the discovery of those loopholes, those suffering the restriction are to be given the widest possible latitude, the least restrictive interpretation possible.
There is some emotionalism regarding this highly controversial letter because of the Promethean “manner and tone”, angry and sarcastic, the taunting, the baiting. It’s quite bullying, non-Fatherly, quite the iron fist, no mercy, no accompaniment, just a literal casting into the peripheries (further comment on that below). In other words, however imprecise the Canon law in these “documents” of Pope Francis, we know precisely, incisively, painfully, exactly what he means. Burn it all!
It’s prudent to wait some time while more knowledgeable minds opine. I saw a great comment the other day, for instance, which would solve a great deal of anguish:
When there is a matter of discipline, that is, something not absolutely essential to the faith, an odious and unbearable burden foisted upon Christ’s faithful, priests or laity, any demand for obedience to that prescription, that law, can be lifted by the local ordinary with the stroke of a pen. Yes. Very cool, that. I mean, we’re interested in the motivation of Canon Law and other law, that is, the care of souls, the cura animarum. I, for one, expect this care for Jesus’ Little Flock from our Shepherds.
There is concern that “at the moment, and until further notice [uh oh… or is that just being diplomatic? ;-) ] those priests who have already been offering the Extraordinary Form of the Mass [btw: using that language is a most polite but strong rejection of Pope Francis’ efforts, much along the lines of what Cardinal Mueller has just published. ;-) ] may continue to do so.” Great, for the moment, I mean, that does sound a bit ominous, but we’ll see how it works out.
There is also the statement that we will be “moving together as a diocese in a smooth and orderly transition to the new course charted by Traditionis Custodes.” That is also a merely very carefully phrased statement, for it could include dispensations from prescriptions that are most odious to the faithful. ;-)
While there are a myriad internal inconsistencies and contradictions and impossibilities and ambiguities in both the “Letter” and the “Motu proprio” of Pope Francis, there are a couple of observations which I am compelled in conscience to make as a priest of Christ Jesus.
There are circumstances in which the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass offered in the traditional use is cast right out of any parish church. Well, there are consecrated non-parish churches or chapels close to Charlotte, such as Belmont Abby and, certainly, the new seminary chapel. And that makes me laugh out loud with great joy. You can’t get better than that, you know, if you live nearby to those places, you know, like the seminarians. Door to door travel time both ways for someone in my parish would be fully ten hours, not to mention the time to arrive early, assist at the Mass, and a little time to pray afterward. Can you imagine the burden for those who are elderly, weak? How terribly cruel would that be? Very.
The solution for my parish, in the middle of nowhere back-ridges at the end of the diocese, would be to sanction that this form of the Mass be offered in the ultra-filthy slimy Community Center of the town. The Mayor of Andrews has already promised that I can have a few early morning hours every Sunday provided no one else has signed up for that time. And that’s unworkable for a thousand reasons where people travel from a number of other states to get here.
But this brings us to the heart of that which horrified me. There are plenty of good reasons for Holy Mass to be said outside of any parish church. Priests said Holy Mass in their bunks in Auschwitz, for instance. Or how about this:
But this action of Pope Francis is an attack from inside the Church. Not to be done.
To throw out any Rite of Holy Mass, right out of any and all parish churches, is to physically throw Jesus Christ Himself out of His own church, His own sanctuary, His own altar. “Damn you, you damn Jesus!” Isn’t that what’s being said? Just a question. But a valid and necessary question that is, at any rate, perhaps, rhetorical.
Oh, I forgot! I get it now! Pope Francis did this on the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, and Alexander Tschugguel went into the Carmelite church at the end of Via della Conciliazione up from the Vatican, grabbed the demon idol Pachamama, brought it to the Tiber River, and threw it in the river. What Pope Francis is doing – throwing Jesus out of His own church – is it in vengeance for Pachamama being thrown out? Remember that Pope Francis held a worship ceremony for the demon idol Pachamama, and then had the demon Pachamama placed on the Papal Altar in Saint Peter’s (above Saint Peter’s bones). This is the Bdelugma, the abomination of desolation where it should not be (see Matthew 24:15; Mark 13:14).
In other words, Pope Francis has equated Jesus and Pachamama.
“But Father George! Father George! You obviously didn’t read what Pope Francis wrote about how much he hates abuse of the New Order of Mass! What you say cannot be! You’re an old meanie, rigid!”
Well, here’s the deal, for Pope Francis there is no abuse possible in the Novus Ordo Mass, for he himself is the worst abuser of the New Order of Mass, having enthroned the demon idol Pachamama on the Papal Altar.
HERE’S MY PROPHESY:
There will be forced concelebrations of all priests once a month, say, with their bishop at their Cathedrals, with each occasion having having a different theme:
Gay-marriage theme in honor of enculturation of Germany
Demon Pachamama idol theme in honor of enculturation of the Amazon
Dirt-bringing theme in honor of enculturation of aboriginal peoples in Australia
Red-Mass theme in honor of pro-abort politicians, making sure all them get Holy Communion
Need I continue for all 12 months of the year? I think you get the idea. Perhaps you can think of other themes.
If you are a bishop somewhere in this world trying to suck up to Pope Francis, smashing down priests, but having no intention of following up yourself on such diabolical behavior, know that you will be the next target. If this is done to Jesus, don’t think you are safe. And then what will you do? Follow Jesus or deny Him. Those who deny Him in this world be denied by Him before His Heavenly Father.
BONUM EX INTEGRA CAUSA, MALUM EX QUOMUNQUE DEFECTU:
“A thing is good because it is integrally so; a thing is evil on account of any defect. An evil law is no law at all. It can’t be obeyed or disobeyed; it is simply nothing. The law-giver is acting ultra vires, beyond his powers. It is to be ignored.
To put that differently, disobedience of a subject to an evil order from a superior is supreme obedience, an act of charity beneficial to the subject, to the superior, to all others who hear of it.
I AM JOYFULLY ENTHUSIASTIC IN MY HOPE TO SEE POPE FRANCIS IN HEAVEN
I’m not angry, bitter, upset with Pope Francis. I pray for him. Thanks be to God and to the prayers of many, even I rejoice in profound peace. I offered Holy Mass for Pope Francis today. I included bishops who are cancelling priests unjustly. I included priests who are have been cancelled, and those who are in the process of being cancelled unjustly, and know it or don’t know it.
The irony is that the Holy Mass that I offered was in the use of the Traditional Latin Mass at the main parish Mass in the Main parish church this past Sunday, two days after this was forbidden. The letter of my own bishop was sent out late Saturday night, but I knew nothing of it until after Sunday, on Monday morning. :-)
God called us to live in this time. Let us have the joy and peace of the Holy Spirit, come what may. Hail Mary…
OH! AND HERE’S ANOTHER PROPHESY…
I’m thinking that Pope Francis will require all priests to get vaccinated with vaccines which are dangerous and immoral, having been derived from living tissue ripped from babies as they are taken living out of the womb. Priests who are faithful to baby Jesus in the womb of His dear Immaculate Virgin Mother will be dismissed forthwith from the clerical state (laicized) and large numbers of Jesus’ Little Flock will be deprived of the sacraments. Jesus is not happy with that, nor is our Blessed Mother.
ONE LAST PROPHESY…
Those who are close to Jesus and Blessed Mother (say the Rosary!) will find themselves rejoicing in heaven.
That was the Noon Mass. It’s all about the Lamb of God.
I still haven’t read the missive at 7:45 pm, nor was there any note from the chancery. And no, I don’t trust the Vatican communications crowd. They have blatantly lied many times and changed texts. Why should I trust those who repeatedly lie? When I get a copy promulgated in the Acta in Latin I’ll consider considering it.
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.]”
Judas is in hell. Jesus in not in hell to save Judas who wants to be in hell, and would kill Jesus again so as to remain in hell. Let’s see:
As it is said: Judas went to his own place, which is hell. [I wouldn’t want that said of me.]
As it is said: better for that man if he had never been born. [I wouldn’t want that said of me.]
As it is said: he is the son of perdition. [I wouldn’t want that said of me.]
Unlike the other Apostles, Judas’ very office of Apostleship was removed from among the twelve. Another office of Apostleship was created and filled by the Holy Spirit. Matthias is one of the original twelve, so to speak. There are no successor bishops for Judas. He and his office of Apostleship were cut off – anathema – sent to hell. Gone, forever.
Judas is not a saint nor will he ever be a saint.
To say that Christ descended to hell to preach to Judas in prison, you know, to evangelize him, to have mercy on him, to bring him to heaven, is blasphemy, heresy, turning the faith and justice and mercy inside-out, upside-down, back-to-front.
I could go on. But why? There is plenty of commentary on all this throughout the Scriptures and in what we call the sensus fidelium.
I, for one, do not want to be distracted by darkness and ambiguity, the unleashing of hell… no… especially not during the Octave of Easter!
But just knowing there is such darkness and scandal, I beg the Lord: “How long?” This idiocy about “Saint Judas” started decades ago. I witnessed one of the main events bringing this to the academic world. I don’t want to give it space.
However, we have to deal in some way with what is before us. Just using the phrase “Scandal of Mercy” grants one bully-rights, a fake moral high-ground, superiority, the arrogance of the one having such condescending humility that only he will advocate for a mercy against justice. How courageous! How heroic!
But this is not Jesus’ mercy. That is the Islamicist view of mercy, which rejects that mercy is founded on justice, rejects altogether that the Son of God had to take on the punishment for sin that we deserve, the Innocent for the guilty, so that He might have the right in His own justice to have mercy on us. The Islamicists think – ever so unreasonably – that Allah is most merciful apart from justice, apart from reason.
Mercy cut off from justice leads instantly to cynicism, therefore to frustration, therefore to violence, to throwing it all back in Allah’s face, strapping kids with bombs and having them commit suicide like Judas while murdering others. Yep. Don’t think Catholics can’t be just as wicked. Catholics can choose to remain apart from the truth, therefore apart from justice, therefore apart from mercy.
As it is, mercy is a potential part of the virtue of justice as we read in Aquinas’ Commentary on the Sentences. No justice, no mercy. If Jesus doesn’t take on what we deserve for sin, standing in our place, the Innocent for the guilty, He will have no right in His own justice to have mercy on us. It’s the justice that makes the mercy credible.
God will respect our usage of free will. After all, that’s only just, for God created us to use our free will. Judas chose what he chose. God respects that. Judas is not only not going to be rescued from hell, Judas would spit upon such a possibility: Judas does not want to be rescued from hell. Those who are in hell want to be there.
If Christ were to sin against His own creation by disrespecting the free will He Himself gave to Judas, and then went all giggly to hell to help Judas, well then, Judas, still wanting to be in hell, would have the right to set about killing Jesus once again, for, having sinned by disrespecting the very free will with which Jesus created us, Jesus would no longer be God. But it is impossible for God to sin. Jesus did not and does not help Judas in hell; Jesus did not and does not nor will He ever bring Judas to heaven. No. Jesus is God and will always be God, and He will respect the choices we have made with our free will. If we freely choose to be apart from sanctifying grace, if we freely choose to go to hell, Jesus will respect that. And believers rejoice in mercy founded on justice, and love to see justice put into action over against those who have freely chosen to reject mercy as founded on justice.
If mercy that is founded on justice is a scandal for the Jews because of rejecting that the Messiah is to be the Suffering Servant…. if mercy that is founded on justice is foolishness for the rest of the nations because of their foolish cutting mercy off from justice… then so be it.
But mercy that is based on justice is no scandal. People are a scandal to themselves by running after a mercy cut off from justice.
There are those who “proof-text” that Judas is not in hell because Jesus called Judas friend, but that was to give Judas one last chance at repentance, one last chance to break down in tears even after just having given Jesus the kiss of death. Nope. Judas rejected this friendship. He went to His own place. Then Jesus faced all of hell for those who assent in His grace to receive redemption unto salvation. Praise the Lord.
The Lord is risen and He has appeared to Simon Peter! Alleluia!
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:
CLAP APPLAUSE CLAP APPLAUSE CLAP APPLAUSE CLAP APPLAUSE CLAP APPLAUSE CLAP APPLAUSE CLAP APPLAUSE — IT’S THE SUCCESSOR OF PETER ! ! ! — CLAP APPLAUSE CLAP APPLAUSE CLAP APPLAUSE CLAP APPLAUSE CLAP APPLAUSE
No. And No. No to all that Promethean Self-Absorbed Neo-Pelagianism. Saint Peter is sick of it.
The homily below began with a critique of the collect for the feast day. That couple of minutes was edited out. That prayer deserves a much more incisive analysis. We get right into the rather animated homily.
HINT: What the Keys of the Kingdom are really all about is NOT whatever Peter might decide, but about what has already been established in the heavens since eternity. If Peter doesn’t comply, he’s done. If he’s going to teach something about faith or morals that is contrary to the truth already established in the heavens (God is the Living Truth), and he does this for the universal Church precisely as the Rock, personally, Peter, or his successor, especially about something controverted, pronouncing that this is in fact revealed in Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition, well then, he simply will NOT be able to do this. He will either be incapacitated in his health or in any way, or die for whatever reason. This is why infallibility is what it is. Peter or his successors can do all the stupid things they want as long as they are not doing such idiocies as a teaching on faith and morals to the universal Church pronouncing that such absurdities are revealed in Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition.
There are those who say, entirely heretically, that the Pope can fail, but that he will disqualified to be Pope when he does this. No. That would be the definition of what it means to be fail-able, and the revenge that will taken out on him by those disgruntled, who thus give themselves a license to depose him, throw him into exile, or worse, they having made themselves infallible.
One more thing not mentioned: Saint Peter doesn’t have the Keys of the Kingdom in heaven. You will find those with the Pope, Peter’s successor. And don’t think that he hasn’t used them just because he hasn’t used them for an ex-Cathedra statement. The Pope mandates usage of the keys with the successors of the Apostles and the priests to whom faculties are granted for absolving sins rightly confessed by penitent faithful. That’s where you find the Keys being turned for your benefit: in the Confessional.
Let’s just use some commonsense here: There are exactly zero transgenders in the world. One cannot change male to female or vice versa regardless of how much cutting and pasting one does. In fact, that is precisely why such “transition” is faked, because it is such an obvious insult to the Creator and there are those who want to do just that. Period. People are not being humble when they “come out” with some sort of proclamation about their “identity” – as if sexual weirdness is any kind of identity – they are being terribly arrogant. And the Pope is right about the sanctification of transgenders: it can’t happen. And the reason is that there are none. They are just those who insult themselves, others and God. The “trans” bit never takes place. Those actual people can be sanctified should they want to stop insisting in their mockery of God and neighbor. Sure! Great! Jesus is good and kind, always.
The same goes for those who fake being atheists. It is so very much contrary to reason that they live a lie. And they become good at lying, rationalizing. It can turn into a kind of sociopathy. Yes. Jesus is God, and we are so united to Jesus that Saint Paul says that Jesus is the Head of the Body of Christ and we are the members of the Body of Christ.
Dear Pope Francis, you complain about people who simply repeat as an accusation against you what you yourself present as goodness. You use your pulpit to power spread manure like a new fangled power manure spreader and then you say that journalists are lovers of shit, the ol’ coprophiliacs accusation which you so very much love to use. Let’s take a look at what a manure spreader does:
What you say, Pope Francis, about Jesus contaminating Himself, about God contaminating Himself when He comes into this world with all of us who are terrible sinners is wrong, heretical, blasphemous. He came to save us from sin, and He cannot do that if he is contaminated by sin. He can do that by taking on the punishment we deserve for sin, death, standing in our place, the Innocent for the guilty, so that He might have the right in His own justice to have mercy on us. Did Jesus touch a leper to heal him? Yes. Did that make the Author of Life, our Almighty God, Christ our God, unclean either ceremoniously or actually? No. Virtue goes forth from Him. Our ceremonial uncleanness or our sin does not enter into God. No. It is you who are the coprophiliac Pope Francis. You are the man.
Pope Francis cited Saint Paul who said that Christ became sin for us. Well, yes. But He did not sin and was not contaminated with sin. Instead He put Himself in our place. He took on what we deserve. When I look upon Jesus being tortured to death on the cross for our sin I do not see a criminal or a sinner, but the most Innocent Son of the Immaculate Conception, conceived of the Holy Spirit. No contamination. Sigh.
I mean, remember Father Brian Lynch against Wuhan Biden so that Wuhan Joe takes the place of King David murdering Bathsheba’s husband Uriah the Hittite? Just replace the name of Wuhan Joe with Pope Francis: You are the man! You can start this at 3 minutes 16 seconds:
Look, even if Pope Francis doesn’t mean what he actually does say, ever so ambiguously (hurtfully) or just plain wrong (hurtfully) or speaking out of two sides of his mouth, saying one thing and then the opposite right away, pleasing everybody (but not), hurting everyone who just dismisses him, we still need to pray for him. We need to pray for him all the more. It is just so sad.
V. Oremus pro Pontifice nostro Francisco.
R. Dominus conservet eum, et vivificet eum, et beatum faciat eum in terra, et non tradat eum in animam inimicorum eius. [Ps 40:3]
Pater Noster, Ave Maria.
Deus, omnium fidelium pastor et rector, famulum tuum N., quem pastorem Ecclesiae tuae praeesse voluisti, propitius respice: da ei, quaesumus, verbo et exemplo, quibus praeest, proficere: ut ad vitam, una cum grege sibi credito, perveniat sempiternam. Per Christum, Dominum nostrum. Amen.
V. Let us pray for Francis our Pope.
R. May the Lord preserve him, and give him life, and make him blessed upon the earth, and deliver him not up to the will of his enemies. [Ps 40:3]
Our Father, Hail Mary.
O God, Shepherd and Ruler of all Thy faithful people, look mercifully upon Thy servant N, whom Thou hast chosen as shepherd to preside over Thy Church. Grant him, we beseech Thee, that by his word and example, he may edify those over whom he hath charge, so that together with the flock committed to him, may he attain everlasting life. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.
THE SITUATION: If an employee of Vatican City refuses to be “vaccinated” against Covid-19 without provable health reasons for that refusal, penalties might well include “the interruption of the work relationship.” In other words, they might well be terminated. To be consistent, Pope Francis would have to have “vaccination” imposed on bishops and priests throughout the world, and if they refuse, they should to be dismissed from the clerical state, that is, terminated. After all, it’s too easy to harass the laity. So, clergy should be the first to be sent into the darkest of existential peripheries.
Yours truly is one priest who will not be “vaccinated”. There’s no way anyone can force me to do this. Over my dead body. This is a moral issue, but one which is based on one’s knowledge about the “science” involved, on one’s knowledge about the assassinations of human beings in utero for the convenience of someone else. Or didn’t you know that these “medical devices” as they are more properly called were started from or tested on aborted human beings?
ADDRESSING POPE FRANCIS PERSONALLY:
Go ahead, Pope Francis! Show your worst! I would rather go to heaven than submit to your bullying.
You say, “It’s better for one person to die than that a whole nation perish.”
Jesus says, “What does it profit a man to gain the whole world only to lose or forfeit his soul?”
You say, “It’s better for one person to die than that a whole nation perish.”
But Jesus is the Head of the Body of Christ and the little ones in the womb are also the members of the Body of Christ, and Jesus says, “What you done to the least of these you have done to me.”
And, in solidarity, I am that aborted baby, Pope Francis. That’s how I am your Missionary of Mercy.
Herod wanted all the children to die in Bethlehem because that would give him a feeling of power. What are you doing, Pope Francis? Are you distancing yourself from those human beings that were aborted for your convenience. “It happened before today!” You won’t be able to avoid them at the Judgment. They will be there to accuse you of their murder. All of eternity will be right in front of you. Are you saying that you would run up to Mary with a machete and have Jesus ripped out of her womb for development or testing of a “vaccine” for your convenience?
Oh, I forgot, you got the vaccine already, so, I guess we know the answer to that question.
This world is no longer our home. We are in exile here. We must look to the things of heaven, true love of God AND love of neighbor, also the little ones in the womb.
All you really going to countenance that people working in Vatican City will be terminated because they want to follow their informed conscience and NOT get the “vaccine”? Why don’t you do it right? Start with the clergy. Start with me. Go ahead and forcibly dismiss me from the clerical state against my will. Be the Promethean self-absorbed neo-Pelagian! It will be a badge of honor that I will be happy to wear to the gates of heaven, you know, out of respect for the little ones of Jesus’ little flock.
And I will still be a priest forever.
I will not compromise. I love Jesus and His little flock.
Hier stehe ich. Ich kann nicht anders. Gott helfe mir. Amen.
When Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio was first presented to the world as Pope Francis, when pretty much all the more “traditional” Catholics condemned him so severely that one was condemned for asking for prayers for him, I nevertheless insisted that to be a good son of the Church I must pray for him, also at Holy Mass. But what I call the ultra-tradition-al-ism-ist began a cancel campaign for anyone promoting, say, this prayer:
V. Oremus pro Pontifice nostro N. R. Dominus conservet eum, et vivificet eum, et beatum faciat eum in terra, et non tradat eum in animam inimicorum eius. [Ps 40:3]
Pater Noster… Ave Maria…
Deus, omnium fidelium pastor et rector, famulum tuum N., quem pastorem Ecclesiae tuae praeesse voluisti, propitius respice: da ei, quaesumus, verbo et exemplo, quibus praeest, proficere: ut ad vitam, una cum grege sibi credito, perveniat sempiternam. Per Christum, Dominum nostrum. Amen.
The ultramontane heresy of the ultra-tradition-al-ism-ists is that the Pope must be immaculately conceived and is not ever to have personally sinned, so that he has no need of our prayers and no need of Christ Jesus to be his Savior. Because that is not the case (ever), the ultra-tradition-al-ism-ists went all apoplectic in their heresy of ultamontinism and continued in condemning him to the point of condemning those who prayed for him. Too sad. We will all stand before Him whom we have all pierced, all of us, men of every tribe and race and people and nation. What’s there not to understand with this. We pray for the Pope as we pray for each other.
“Father George, you don’t understand. If you pray for Pope Francis that means that you agree with everything he says no matter what and you’re going to go to hell just like him because we said so and everything!
Sigh. Remember Peter, who denied our Lord three times and only later became Saint Peter? I’m guessing that he was martyred because Divine Jesus’ good mom, the Immaculate Virgin, prayed for him, already then assumed to heaven soul and body, Queen of heaven and earth, angels and men. We follow her lead. Get it?
But what about praying the likes of the present POTUS Joe Biden, the most anti-Catholic pro-abort ever? Saint Peter himself has something to say about that (1 Peter 2:11-17):
“Beloved, I urge you as aliens and sojourners to keep away from worldly desires that wage war against the soul. Maintain good conduct among the Gentiles, so that if they speak of you as evildoers, they may observe your good works and glorify God on the day of visitation. Be subject to every human institution for the Lord’s sake, whether it be to the king as supreme or to governors as sent by him for the punishment of evildoers and the approval of those who do good. For it is the will of God that by doing good you may silence the ignorance of foolish people. Be free, yet without using freedom as a pretext for evil, but as slaves of God. Give honor to all, love the community, fear God, honor the king.”
A generation later, in the Letter to Diognetus, from waaaaaaaay back in the day, like the end of the first or beginning of the second century, addressed to the early Christians, all Catholic, of course, we read this:
“For the Christians are distinguished from other men neither by country, nor language, nor the customs which they observe. For they neither inhabit cities of their own, nor employ a peculiar form of speech, nor lead a life which is marked out by any singularity. The course of conduct which they follow has not been devised by any speculation or deliberation of inquisitive men; nor do they, like some, proclaim themselves the advocates of any merely human doctrines. But, inhabiting Greek as well as barbarian cities, according as the lot of each of them has determined, and following the customs of the natives in respect to clothing, food, and the rest of their ordinary conduct, they display to us their wonderful and confessedly striking method of life. They dwell in their own countries, but simply as sojourners. As citizens, they share in all things with others, and yet endure all things as if foreigners. Every foreign land is to them as their native country, and every land of their birth as a land of strangers. They marry, as do all [others]; they beget children; but they do not destroy their offspring. They have a common table, but not a common bed. They are in the flesh, but they do not live after the flesh. 2 Corinthians 10:3 They pass their days on earth, but they are citizens of heaven. Philippians 3:20 They obey the prescribed laws, and at the same time surpass the laws by their lives. They love all men, and are persecuted by all. They are unknown and condemned; they are put to death, and restored to life. 2 Corinthians 6:9 They are poor, yet make many rich; 2 Corinthians 6:10 they are in lack of all things, and yet abound in all; they are dishonored, and yet in their very dishonor are glorified. They are evil spoken of, and yet are justified; they are reviled, and bless; 2 Corinthians 4:12 they are insulted, and repay the insult with honor; they do good, yet are punished as evil-doers. When punished, they rejoice as if quickened into life; they are assailed by the Jews as foreigners, and are persecuted by the Greeks; yet those who hate them are unable to assign any reason for their hatred. /// To sum up all in one word — what the soul is in the body, Christians are in the world. The soul is dispersed through all the members of the body, and Christians are scattered through all the cities of the world. The soul dwells in the body, yet is not of the body; and Christians dwell in the world, yet are not of the world. The invisible soul is guarded by the visible body, and Christians are known indeed to be in the world, but their godliness remains invisible. The flesh hates the soul, and wars against it, 1 Peter 2:11 though itself suffering no injury, because it is prevented from enjoying pleasures; the world also hates the Christians, though in nowise injured, because they abjure pleasures. The soul loves the flesh that hates it, and [loves also] the members; Christians likewise love those that hate them. The soul is imprisoned in the body, yet keeps together that very body; and Christians are confined in the world as in a prison, and yet they keep together the world. The immortal soul dwells in a mortal tabernacle; and Christians dwell as sojourners in corruptible [bodies], looking for an incorruptible dwelling in the heavens. The soul, when but ill-provided with food and drink, becomes better; in like manner, the Christians, though subjected day by day to punishment, increase the more in number. God has assigned them this illustrious position, which it were unlawful for them to forsake.”
So, both Pope Francis and (Pope) Benedict XVI have been vaccinated. In our fallen human nature it would be a huge temptation after compromising oneself to claim the moral high ground by insisting that one’s underlings are going to be just as compromised, forcing the matter by threatening priests that they will be taken out of active ministry or, much more likely these days, simply dismissed from the clerical state, you know, so that they are not liabilities to their respective (arch)dioceses or religious orders or institutes. Yep. I bet you an Ash Wednesday Liturgical Mask that this will come about unless there is an intervention of some kind. For myself, I think that there is Someone whose Sacrifice is more important than this B.S. See the picture above.
If you want to know why I’m so against the vaccine, take a gander at the following:
So, I would rather be dismissed from active ministry than to take this vaccine. I would rather be dismissed from the clerical state rather than to take this vaccine.
Dear Pope Francis, why not next year put me, your Missionary of Mercy, in charge of the Christmas creche in front of the obelisk? Yes. Do it.
My idea for Christmas 2021? A life-size = relatively tiny crib scene, a small manger, smaller than the width of the obelisk, all respectful of the Word Incarnate, of His dear, humble Immaculate Virgin Mother, of quiet Saint Joseph, a few shepherds, a joyful angel. That’s it. Donate the money for the overly ostentatious tree to, say, small parish churches like mine, you know, for the installation of altar rails, of a real altar. Seriously.
Jesus came to us, to these peripheries, with humility, in the quiet of the night, a Light in the darkness. Tiny. Humble. Good and kind. The Living Truth. That’s not just the symbol, the message. Let’s point all to Jesus, to the manner in which He chose to come among us.
