A refreshing rant from Dr Taylor Marshall, critical that such a heretic would be put in charge of The Blah Blah Synod™. Great!
Since I’m still getting emails insisting that I participate in The Blah Blah Synod™, I cannot but add another rant myself:
With any kind of communication, dialogue, whatever, you have a “sender” and a “receiver,” as in the guy who’s talking and the guy who’s listening, and then the roles are changed up. Easy, right?
But there’s a basic prerequisite for the guys doing this: they have to have identities as a base from which to speak. Vacuity, Styrofoaminess, emptiness… that doesn’t work. It’s like the uselessness of a “man of consensus”, who, in such a creepy manner, stares with glazed eyes at the guy who is talking to him and simply agrees with him regardless of what is said.
Anyone who is sincere backs away. You know what’s going to happen. The condescending listening soon turns into a hissy fit of dictatorial edicts which the tyrannical vacuous guy vomits out on everyone, not because he has any identity from which to speak, but rather he is simply a mouthpiece for whatever is politically correct, you know, to himself.
Heretics have no identities, no basis from which to communicate, dialogue, whatever. They will tell you anything and everything as the great “men of consensus.” You are free to have your opinion as long as it is lockstep, goosestep with the “men of consensus.”
Same-sex unions? That’s the right side of history, they say.
Demon idol worship? That’s the right side of history, they say.
Abortion-tainted “vaccines”? That’s the right side of history, they say.
The Sacrifice of the Mass? That’s all in the past and so is irrelevant, they say. Such people hide serious problems, and are to have any attempt at dialogue preempted with condescending insults, they say.
Jesus Christ, the Son of the Living God, who will come to judge the living and the dead and the world by fire? We don’t know of whom you speak, they say. We are the Way and the Truth and the Life, the saviors of the world, they say.
These guys are so arrogant, so narcissistic. There is a saying they have amongst themselves which they will actually publish in extremely obscure academic journals they are certain no believer will peruse. But I did. I hunted down everything. They just say it right out: what we have done to change the doctrine of the Church cannot be undone. I’ve also heard this spoken by the highest of the powers that be. So arrogant. So narcissistic. But I saw right through what they were doing. All of it. Easy peasy. They aren’t as smart as they think. And they certainly have no power over the Son of the Living God as they think they do.
“But Father George! Father George! You think you’re so special to absent yourself from The Blah Blah Synod™! Special! Special! Special! Get some humility, Father George!”
Well, I agree with that. I need to be more humble. That’s for sure. But my way of going about this is not to vaunt heresy over against the Son of the Living God. No. My job as a priest is to get my own little hell out of the way of Jesus by prayer and the Sacraments and solidarity with the Lord’s Little Flock, whereby Christ Jesus, the Sovereign High Priest, will exercise His priestly ministry through me. All the doctrine, all the morality, reverence in the Liturgy, pointing to the words not of our own Blah Blah, but to the inspired and inerrant words of the Sacred Scriptures, an occasion by which the Holy Spirit will form us to be one with the Eternal Word of God, now Incarnate.
To sum it up: you cannot reason with a heretic because the heretic has absented himself from reason. If you try to reason out heresy, you will fail: error cannot be made reasonable. That’s why it’s error. If you keep insisting that you’ll be able to understand the reasonableness of heresy, you will become a heretic.
This guy was not screaming or yelling. He was appropriately projecting his voice to carry across the vacuous audience hall, speaking perfect Italian, making an appeal to Francis. He’s well presented, very polite with the Gendarmerie and the Swiss Guard. I’m guessing he’s wanting to say what he said in this reprimand for quite some time, but wanted to see for himself what Francis presents on such occasions. I wouldn’t be surprised to find out that this was a local priest in Rome, or a professor at a Pontifical University. I suppose there will be a fuller report, but what I heard him saying here was entirely consistent with what any Father of the Church, say an Augustine or a Jerome or an Athanasius would say. But I dare say he was much more soft-spoken than the greats of old would have been upon hearing the heresy and blasphemy vomited out by Francis.
Someone might say that this guy should just put his thoughts out in dialogue at an official Blah Blah Fest in a parish hall over coffee and donuts. No. It doesn’t work that way. What this guy said would be discarded instantly and the guy taken out by force. No dialogue.
But before we get into what he said let’s see what’s so offensive this time from Francis. It’s like there’s always some totally insane heresy with every gesture, every word, every symbol he comes up with on any given day. It’s the drama of Francis getting reprimanded here that puts a rather heavy spotlight on the heresy this time.
That’s the entire audience above for reference. The translations either don’t exist as of this writing or vary. But this is the video, with audio, so we check it assiduously. And I make the corrections myself. The heart of the offending bit is at 18:00-19:07. With a little added context:
“Cari fratelli e care sorelle, la gioia e il dolore che toccano la mia vita riguarda tutti, così come la gioia e il dolore che toccano la vita del fratello e della sorella accanto a noi riguardano anche me. Io non posso essere indifferente agli altri, perché siamo tutti parte di un corpo, in comunione. In questo senso, anche il peccato di una singola persona riguarda sempre tutti, e l’amore di ogni singola persona riguarda tutti. In virtù della comunione dei santi, di questa unione, ogni membro della Chiesa è legato a me in maniera profonda – ma non dico a me perché sono il Papa – siamo legati reciprocamente e in maniera profonda, e questo legame è talmente forte che non può essere rotto neppure dalla morte. Infatti, la comunione dei santi non riguarda solo i fratelli e le sorelle che sono accanto a me in questo momento storico, ma riguarda anche quelli che hanno concluso il pellegrinaggio terreno e hanno varcato la soglia della morte. Anche loro sono in comunione con noi. Pensiamo, cari fratelli e sorelle: in Cristo nessuno può mai veramente separarci da coloro che amiamo perché il legame è un legame esistenziale, un legame forte che è nella nostra stessa natura; cambia solo il modo di essere insieme a ognuno di loro, ma niente e nessuno può rompere questo legame. “Padre, pensiamo a coloro che hanno rinnegato la fede, che sono degli apostati, che sono i persecutori della Chiesa, che hanno rinnegato il loro battesimo: anche questi sono a casa?”. Sì, anche questi, tutti, anche i bestemmiatori, [tutti]. Siamo fratelli: questa è la comunione dei santi. La comunione dei santi tiene insieme la comunità dei credenti sulla terra e nel Cielo. [E sulla terra i santi, peccatori, tutti.]”
And in English with [my comments]:
“Dear brothers and dear sisters, the joy and sorrow that touch my life affect everyone, just as the joy and sorrow that touch the life of the brother and sister next to us also affect me. I cannot be indifferent to others, because we are all in one body, in communion. In this sense, even the sin of an individual person always affects everyone, and the love of each individual person affects everyone. In virtue of the communion of saints, this union, every member of the Church is bound to me in a profound way. [That’s a bit first-person-stated, but this is all the doctrine of Saint Paul on the Body of Christ, what Pius XII called in his encyclical letter: Mystici Corporis Christi. Good so far.] But I don’t say “to me” because I am the Pope; [I say] to each one of us he is bound, we have been bound, and bound in a profound way and this bond is so strong that it cannot be broken even by death. Even by death. In fact, the communion of saints does not concern only those brothers and sisters who are beside me at this historic moment, or who live in this historic moment, but also those who have concluded their journey, the earthly pilgrimage and crossed the threshold of death. They too are in communion with us. [Saint Paul speaks of the members of the churches in this world as “the saints.” All good, as sanctifying grace turns to glory in heaven. It is Christ who reconciles to be one in Christ. Good so far.] Let us consider, dear brothers and sisters, that in Christ no one can ever truly separate us from those we love because the bond is an existential bond, a strong bond that is in our very nature [Oops! That confuses grace and nature. Wrong. Let’s move on, but keep this in mind.]; only the manner of being together with one another them changes, but nothing and no one can break this bond. [“Life is changed, not ended…” Fine… But here it comes:]“Father, let’s think about those who have denied the faith, who are apostates, who are the persecutors of the Church, who have denied their baptism: Are these also at home?” Yes, these too. All of them. The blasphemers, all of them. We are brothers. This is the communion of saints. The communion of saints holds together the community of believers on earth and in heaven, and on earth the saints, the sinners, all.” [Well, that’s a gut-punch. See more fulsome comments next:]
Any nuance of “saved sinners” mentioned at the start does not refer to any sinners being saved from sin, but rather refers to sinners remaining in sin being saved while choosing to remain continuously as sinners, even in heaven, blaspheming, persecuting. Get that? It’s like he’s getting ready to congratulate all those he’s dragging to hell with him for having made it to heaven when they are obviously in hell. What a hell that would be. Being mocked by Francis for having followed his diabolical blah blah to hell.
This is even worse than Martin Luther, who had it that Christ did not save us any more than a blanket of snow covering a manure pile is saved from being what it is. Diversely, if you put lipstick on a pig, it’s still a pig. But while Luther thought heaven might be lots of snow and pretty, Francis has full-on persecution, raping and pillaging and hell going on in heaven because that’s the Communion of Saints! What a fraud.
Let’s be clear. Christ Jesus warns people of their being sent to hell right though the Gospels. In the parables He simply says it: Get away from me you evil doers. I never knew you. Go to hell, not to heaven.
Francis is a universal salvationist heretic: Everyone is saved no matter what and no one goes to hell, even those attempting to spit in Christ’s face at the last judgment.
What that means is that there is actually no salvation from sin or from being sinned against. That means there is no sin, no redemption from sin, and the whole lot of it is a lie.
Tell you what: that’s not the heaven described by Jesus, Paul and the saints. I want to go to heaven with Jesus and those who have been forgiven of sin and never want to sin again, but want to praise and thank God. I myself have sooooo much to be thankful for in this regard. But I can’t do that in hell.
But this is all my take on what Francis said.
Let’s see what the guy in the video is upset about, and then how Francis reacts to him.
If I get the gist of it, he’s saying that Pope is not presenting any kind of reflection of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic faith, and that because Francis is not serving God with such heresy, it is God who rejects Francis. And the guy right at the end quotes and references the great prophet Samuel [15ff].
This hearkens to when Saul was doing his own will, making up his own laws with the perverted theology which has it that because he now had a bit of power as king, he could tell even God: “Non serviam!” I will not serve, just like Satan. Of course, as Samuel prophesies, God rips the kingdom from Saul and establishes David as King.
So, now that we know what this guy was upset about, what was Francis’ reaction?
If you go the full audience video, the response to the rebuke is exactly one minute, from 24:12-25:12, which just treats the guy not like someone with whom to dialog, but who is condescendingly said to be sick perhaps physically, psychically, spiritually. I find the utilitarian usage of the Hail Mary to be disgusting.
Yes, let’s pray the Hail Mary for each other, but not as weaponized: “I’m better than you are.”
This guy reminds me of the great Alexander Tschugguel.
I’m getting multiple frantic emails pushing me to become involved in The Blah Blah Synod™. This blog has already called out the Holy See for advertising New Ways Ministry, which promotes militant homosexualist ideology in the most anti-Catholic manner possible. There is zero openness to accepting the teaching of Sacred Scripture.
Prompted to again take a look at what the Holy See is up to right now by these harassing emails, I see that it’s all progressively worse as the days go by. The “Women Ordination Conference” – entirely lesbian ideologically – is now also advertised.
Clicking on that, we are brought to their page at the Vatican:
There must have been some disgruntlement, so a disclaimer was put up on the opening page:
On the explanatory page from the pop-up:
“Synodresources.org is a tool for listening and a platform for sharing that does not replace the official website of Synod 2021-2023 (synod.va). Rather than vertical, top-down communication, it aims to be horizontal communication. It is no coincidence that synodresources.org was created in the wake of the Newsletter entitled Litterae Communionis, which adopts the ancient patristic custom of exchanging letters between the various Churches. Thus, more than an institutional tool, it can be a useful instrument to carry out pastoral initiatives; it can be a source of information to narrate the synod “of the base”.
Wait… What? This means that homosexualist militants like New Ways Ministry and Women Ordination Conference are equal to Churches. There are so many heresies in that execration that it’s difficult to know where to begin. This is then followed by more lies:
“As such, the publication of any contribution should not be understood as an endorsement of its content by the General Secretariat; nor should anyone interpret such a publication as an act of formal recognition by the Synod Secretariat of the group or community submitting the contribution.”
But, of course, vomiting this out upon the entire Catholic Church and the world is an endorsement and a recognition. It’s a provision of an opportunity for networking for these groups on a world scale. This is grievous scandal, the murder of souls. These actions are consonant with him whom our Lord calls the liar and murderer from the beginning.
I will not comply.
I’m a priest of Jesus Christ, who is alone the Way, the Truth, the Life. Instead of encouraging people to promote their grievous sin, I will endeavor to lead souls to the Divine Son of the Immaculate Conception. I will promote integral Confession of sin with a necessary firm purpose of amendment. I will promote the worthy reception of Holy Communion. I will encourage people to avoid hell and be on their way to heaven.
I never hear a mention of Jesus from these heretics. Not ever. Nada. Zilch. Zero. Why’s that? Because it’s useless to spout lies in front of Jesus. He is Living and unmanipulatable Truth. He provides the Truth. He provides Himself. Look at those wounds of His, standing in our place, Innocent for the guilty. That’s the truth of the situation. We put those wounds there. He heals our wounds. Why ignore Him? Why give a world stage to the promotion of sin?
I recall a diocesan newspaper promoting women’s ordination saying that women want to be ordained for the same reason they want to have abortions: because that frees them from patriarchy. And that was said in a positive manner, so that such reasoning is presented as fabulous, effervescent, all nice. I’m waiting for Planned Parenthood International to be advertised as a dialogue partner. And Pfizer.
Here’s the deal: the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is the marriage of God with His Immaculate Bride, the Church. This was prophesied continuously throughout the Old Testament and fulfilled with the wedding vows of Jesus at the Last Supper united with Calvary: This is my body given for you in Sacrifice, my blood poured out for you in Sacrifice. Total self-giving. A man who is a homosexualist having the pretense to say Holy Mass is blasphemous. A woman pretending to be ordained and pretending to say Holy Mass is blasphemous.
The Blah Blah Synod™ is just a bunch of Blah Blah, only much, much worse.
“Everybody ever is infallible in their believing!” proclaims The Blah Blah Synod™ No. They are not.
Matthew 16 (exclusively about Peter) and Matthew 18 (about believers) indicate that Peter and believers have the same capacity to believe but only Peter has infallibility. When those in Matthew 18 have a disagreement they are to go to Peter. That’s how our Lord set up His Family of Faith. Yep. To reject the very founding of the Church on Peter is to reject the Church, to reject Christ, so set up not just a different or even another church, it is to set up an anti-Christ, anti-church.
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.
So, Cardinal Mario Grech, Secretary-General of the Synod of Bishops, yelled at the US bishops: “Let the pastors not be afraid to listen to the flock.” That’s fraudulent gas-lighting.
I’m not afraid to listen. Let me tell you just how much I’m not afraid. I’m so unafraid that I show people the wounds of Jesus, I show them their biographies written out in the wounds on Jesus’ body, perfectly clear depictions of their self-entitlement to be idiots identities, must more clear then they could ever express themselves. I show them their damned and sinful selves so that they can find their true identities in Christ Jesus, He the Head of the Body, and we, who are to be the members of His Body, as Saint Paul says. As people open their mouths to defend their self-entitlement to sin against doctrine, sin against morality, sin against liturgy, to sin by way of idol-worship, to sin by way of sacrificing children… I have their jaws drop right to the floor so they can enunciate clearly their sins in Sacramental Confession. Other than that, their jaws can just drop so that they now listen, stunned into silence, by the Word of God spoken to them, surely for the first time in their lives. They speak loudly in that manner of stunned silence, with their hearts and minds and souls captured by the Word of our Heavenly Father, now Incarnate, Christ Jesus. Let me be clear:
You can Blah Blah Synod™ all the hell you want, but in doing so you will obscure those wounds of Christ Jesus, you will silence the voice of those wounds, you will muffle the voice of our Heavenly Father speaking that eternal Word of God who is Love, you will never be able to hear the true needs and misery of those who had chosen sin and darkness but now want to come back to the fullness of life and light, but cannot, because of ecclesiastics who hotly desire to forever listen to the dainty desires of sin instead of listening to the confession of, repentance from sins in Sacramental Confession, instead of listening to the ripping to shreds of Jesus with the scourging, instead of listening to the smashing of the crown of thorns into His skull, instead of listening to the nails thudding through His hands and feet into the wood of the Cross, instead of listening to the gurgling of the blood and water gushing from the Heart of Love Himself when the sword is rammed into His side, instead of listening to the command given now to the Father to obey the Son: “Father! Forgive them!”
If we don’t hear that repentant confession of sin, and that’s all we need to hear, we will never be able to see sin as sin, for we ourselves will be so immersed in sin that we will deny sin is sin. We won’t give witness to those who want to listen to a word about the Sacrifice of the Word Incarnate. We won’t give witness by our deeds to those who want to see how it’s done, that is, with ourselves going to Confession.
People are screaming to be heard from the midst of the darkness they don’t know how to escape except in a downward spiral, even suicide. “Listen to me!” they cry. “Listen to me begging to have witness to Jesus shown to me!” But no. The last thing The Blah Blah Synod™ is about is Jesus. Jesus doesn’t count. Jesus is just a symbol to be shoved to the side in thematic liturgies given over to demon-idols. These ecclesiastics don’t hear the pleas for Jesus, the pleas for good doctrine, good morality, good liturgy, for Sacraments and sacramentals. Jesus, the Word, is stifled with all the Blah Blah.
But I’ll tell you what, people have a right before the throne of God, sinful as they are, lost as they are, to have witness from the pastors of the Lord’s Little Flock. And, yes, they are entitled to that witness by the Blood of the Lamb, He who stood in our place, Innocent for the guilty, so that He has the right in His own justice to have mercy on us. He came into this world baiting the ecclesiastics of the day, getting the job done, baiting them into to killing Him. They think they won, but in having founded His mercy on His justice, taking on the death we deserve for sin, Jesus, Innocent, usurps Satan’s right over us (we having given Satan that right over us with original sin and then whatever of our own rubbish sin). Jesus takes us back with such violence! He gets the job done, literally come hell or high water.
When people are not given that witness to Jesus, to which they have a right because of the enormity of what Jesus in His love did for us hanging over the heads of all mankind, when people are not given that witness to Jesus they have a right to take that witness, to make it happen. People aren’t going to bother with the wimpish cowardly Styrofoam ecclesiastics who are inverted, self-absorbed and dainty, those who are men of consensus. No. People are going to go after those who are already witnessing to Jesus, to His doctrine, to His morality, to His Sacrifice of the Mass, and they are going to push that witness of those who are faithful to be even clearer than it ever has been by way of martyrdom. And this martyrdom will be the most exquisite listening of those true pastors to the needs of the many for whom Jesus died, the new members of Jesus’ Little Flock.
That’s how to listen. Can you hear the flesh being ripped off, now? the thorns being smashed into craniums, now? the thud of nails piercing hands and feet and into the wood of uncountable crosses, now? the cries of “Father! Forgive them!”, now?
But that glorious witness will not be given unless we are listening to our Heavenly Father eternally speak that one Word now Incarnate, Christ Jesus.
Give a listen to the biographies of people. It’s all so very clear for all to hear:
Nietzsche was out to kill Zarathustra, to kill everything, in his little mind, of that which is Judeo-Catholic, because it’s all about his own Promethean “will-to-power” unto the Übermensch, the Superman, who leads humanity onward into… what?… merely his own projections of himself, his dark, arrogant, narcissistic self, thinking he’s so special in his self-absorption. But graffiti messages all over the world proclaim to us the amazing news that Nietzsche is dead and stays dead.
Nietzsche, ever the nihilist, because he recognizes, finally, that he himself is nothing, thus wants that everything and everyone be just like him, nothing.
Nietzche’s efforts were said to be the foundation for… wait for it… Adolf Hitler’s Mein Kampf. That would be right.
Let’s see, what does all this bring to mind? No doctrine, no morals, no liturgy, no reason, no justice, no mercy, no truth, no God, no sin, no Savior from sin…
The most striking if Dubious statement of bravado in all this is that synodality is truly such because there is only one vision of one person to be rammed down the throats of all so that all are lock-step goose-stepping out of fear. No rigidity going on there, folks, no sir-eee.
Fulton Sheen spoke of the similarities and the difference between two totalitarian systems:
One says that you shall obey the State in all things, what you think, what you say, what you read, whom you converse with, what your work is, all aspects of your family, every moment from conception to death. This is to be done out of fear of torture, imprisonment, death. Meanwhile, the world is quickly falling under under a kind of interdict, no work, no food, no free speech, no travel, your body is the State’s, but also an even worse interdict, no Sacraments, the worst of punishments, and for no crime.
But another totalitarian system has it that you love the Lord your God with all your heart and mind and soul and all your strength, everything that you are, but you shall do this out of great love, love of God, love of neighbor, and, yes, love of yourself. But Jesus is the very One who is forgotten by the powers that be, who should be all about Jesus, and bringing people to Jesus and His Sacraments.
When Jesus told the adulterous woman (Jn 7:53–8:11): “Go and do not sin again,” this wasn’t some perverted and really creepy invitation of some cleric that he might accompany her while she continued in her adulterous activity. That would be CREEPY! Instead, “Do not sin again!” means “Do not sin again!” And Jesus provided grace with that forgiveness which was then met with repentance and a firm purpose of amendment.
Confessors must accept as the basis of what they do that God provides people with the moral wherewithal to make a firm purpose of amendment and to avoid sin. Otherwise they are already guilty of the excommunicable offense of solicitation of sin during a sacramental confession, saying that it’s just fine to go ahead and continue to sin, you know, while being accompanied in that very sin by a “wise confessor.” Brrr! I don’t want anything to do with getting excommunicated with this kind of B as in B, S as in S. It’s blah-blah-blah that brings one to hell. Even the kids are sick of it (see the video above).
Yet, solicitation of continued sin that is accompanied is the very modus operandi of the Synod on Synodality: “Push off real conversion. The Church will change over the next couple of years. I can keep on sinning. My sin really isn’t sin at all. We’re changing doctrine! We’re changing morality! We are the saviors of the world!”
“But Father George! Father George! You are sinful in condemning the vision of Pope Francis for Future Church, not another Church, but a different Church! It’s the vision of the different and snazzy church of Pope Francis! It’s fabulous! So happy and gay! The vision of Pope Francis! The vision of Pope Francis! The vision of Pope Francis.”
I hear it all the time. Such co-visionaries of Pope Francis say that I am going straight to hell. But let’s take a look at the ♬ Synod on Synodality ♬ Resources ♬ of the vision of Pope Francis:
At the bottom of that screen-grab is a YouTube video, a webinar provided by New Ways Ministry, a militant pro-LGBTQ+ lifestyle group providing propaganda from hell with ever so polite belligerence. They’ve been militating loudly against the Church for many decades. They’ve been severely condemned by the Church right through those decades. They don’t give a damn. And now… now… the sponsor putting that up anti-Church, anti-Christ demonic propaganda, advertising it for the whole world, is the Holy See. The presenter of that webinar is ever so fabulously exuberantly effervescent at the chance to promote sin to the entire world with the blessing of the Church. I could only stand some seconds of it. Yuck.
If you want creepy, this is it.
If you want solicitation to sin, this is it.
I won’t have anything to do with any of it, nor will my parish, not on my watch.
Hier stehe ich. Ich kann nicht anders. Gott helfe mir.
Instead of the execration promoting sin and hell that has become the be-all and end-all of the Holy See, instead, I say, we want Jesus, the Way, the Life, the unmanipulatable Living Truth. But we will surely pay the price for following Jesus, from marginalization to death. But Jesus said that we will also have our reward for following Him to heaven. He will declare to us in front of our heavenly Father:
“It is you who have stood by me in my trials.” (Luke 22: 28)
I would love that to be said about me by Jesus. Yes. All His grace. I would be so thankful. I get teared up thinking about as I write this. Thank you, Jesus.
Here’s the deal. We’re all weak. How can we be sure of standing by Jesus in His trials? After all, right after that bit about being in solidarity with Jesus, it is Jesus who then said to Peter:
“I have prayed that your own faith may not fail; and once you have turned back, you must strengthen your brothers.” (Luke 22:32)
And then, a few verses later:
“Judas, are you betraying the Son of Man with a kiss?” (Luke 22:48)
Remember how they protested too much:
But Peter kept insisting, “Even if I have to die with You, I will never deny You.” And all the others said the same thing. (Mark 14:31)
“Then they all deserted him and ran away.” (Mark 14:50)
In all this I’m not claiming that I wouldn’t desert Jesus, that I wouldn’t run away, that I wouldn’t deny Him, not even that I wouldn’t betray Him. Instead I proclaim: There but for the grace of God go I. Zoom! Away from Calvary. It’s just that I’ve already sinned and put Christ Jesus to death by my sin. And now, gaping, aghast at what I’ve done, with the grace of our Lord and due to no merit of my own, now, because of Jesus, depending on Him, trusting in Him, now I say: “Lord Jesus, please, allow me by your grace to stand with you in your trials.”
I have my own synod. It’s called sitting at the feet of Jesus with my parish, with all of us hanging off of Him, listening. ὁ λαὸς γὰρ ἅπας ἐξεκρέματο αὐτοῦ ἀκούων: the entire people was hanging off of Him, listening. HE, personally, is our Way. We want His Truth, His love, His goodness and kindness… Him.
That the Holy See does this, that all the bishops of the world follow lockstep in persecuting the Church is itself a persecution of the Church, the worst kind, worse than mere bloodshed. This persecution is about killing souls. And the bishops go along with it. For shame. For shame.
Listen closely… Do you hear any bishops complaining about the sinful Synod on Synodality? No? And what about all those “conservative” priests? Nothing? What does that tell you?
The fire destroying the roof and spires of the Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris didn’t hurt the side chapels with their windows and paintings and Altars and Confessionals:
But those are now set to be destroyed for light shows and murals and the glorification of man, so that Liberté means the freedom of being rid of God, Egalité means all become gods, Fraternité means being the mirror image of the ones who wield raw power, who manipulate – in all their self-congratulation – the “dialogue” of Hegelian-Rahnerian dialectic synodality favoring environmentalism.
Murals depicting various cultures will be displayed along with light shows mocking not only God, but the very ones who are to be thereby sealed into cynical boredom with “religion”, an estimated 12,000,000 souls per year. Remember this light show on the front of the Basilica of Santa Maria sopra Minerva in Rome depicting a demonic destruction of the Church?
Or how about this one on the Basilica of Saint Peter, you know, so as to have hope in the new religion of environmentalism? Cute! But what about Jesus and Him crucified?
Just makes you want to go to Confession in repentance of one’s sins and then attend the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in thanksgiving, doesn’t it? It’s all about Jesus, isn’t it? No, nothing about Jesus. Not at all.
The destruction of the altars in Notre-Dame for the sake of this crapola is an attack on the Sacrifice of Jesus, He, the Son of the Living God, who came into this world to stand in our place, the innocent for the guilty, taking on the punishment we deserve for original sin and whatever other rubbish sin, so that He might have the right in His own justice to have mercy on us, granting us the wherewithal in His grace to do what is right, being united with Him, and so be on our way to heaven. But, no…
“Away with the Altars! Away with the Son of God! No more Holy Sacrifice of the Mass! No more forgiveness of sin! No more Confessionals! It’s not about Jesus! It’s about us! Me!”
Side “chapels” in Notre-Dame de Paris will be dedicated to cultures. I bet Pachamama will figure prominently, as will Xi’s genocidal Communism, as well as Germany’s same-sex marriage “culture”. Not just a few fallen cultures, not just some idol worship, not just some idolatrous lust, but – Hey! – with light shows you can depict as much diverse hell as desired a hundred different ways every hour of every day!
The real crime was not any arson of Notre-Dame de Paris in 2019, but the purposed mockery of God and Jesus’ Little Flock with the post-arson hatred of all that is good and holy.
When you see the Abomination of Desolation being caused to be established on the Holy of Holies where it must not be by divine mandate, then know that…
When the Daily Sacrifice comes to an end, then know that…
Any rich person out there reading this? How about transporting those Altars with their relics and those Confessionals to someone who can preserve them, use them? There are plenty of cancelled priests right now also in Paris who would rejoice to be set up with an Altar and Confessional from Notre Dame.
I’m guessing, though, that the Altars will pave the sewers of Paris, and the Confessionals will be saved as kindling to burn the saints at the stake, you know, while the light shows continue, while no one goes to Holy Mass, while no one goes to Confession, while no one gets to know Jesus, while no one is on their way to heaven…
What am I upset about the most? The destruction of the Altars and the Confessionals teaches people the lie that Jesus doesn’t count any more, that He is gone, to be forgotten, that we’re the ones now, we’re gods, we’re our own saviors. So sad all of this.
Go to Confession while you can. Go to Holy Mass while you can. Say the Rosary while you can.
UPDATE: Since Notre Dame is owned by the State, the Church should give up anything to do with that building. How can one tolerate sacrilege by continuing to use the same space? How can it be consecrated when sacrilege continues non-stop?
