Mercy is found in Truth

A few weeks ago and upon hearing reports of the then rumour that Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke was to be removed from his curial post, I wrote the following. Given the events of the last few weeks methinks it worthy of reprinting a portion:

+ + +

A few years ago, I read a story on the Internet, which I can no longer find; it was written by a man that once suffered from same-sex attraction.

He wrote that he was outraged that then Bishop Burke of LaCrosse in Wisconsin would speak out firmly against sodomy. This man sent letters to the Bishop, hateful and spiteful letters. A few years later, he had a conversion to Christ and His Church. By then, Raymond Leo Burke was the Archbishop of St. Louis, in Missouri. The man that harassed him so many times sought him out in St. Louis and was surprised when the Archbishop accepted his request for a meeting. He came to the Archbishop and apologised. Archbishop Burke then went to a closet to retrieve a shoebox. Inside the shoebox were all the letters of harassment and hate that the man had sent to him. Archbishop Burke explained that he would regularly pray over the letters for the man and gave him back his letters with his blessing.

I have a personal friend that knows Cardinal Burke personally, I told him this story and his reply was, "I don't know that I've ever heard that but I believe it because that is exactly the kind of thing that Cardinal Burke would do." 

Welcome and thank you.

To the many, many thousands of readers of this blog in the last few days and weeks who have come here for the first time, welcome and thank you.

You have come from all across Canada and the United States, from France, Malaysia, Australia, Brazil and Ireland; from Belgium, Croatia, Spain, Denmark, Italy, Slovakia, Japan, South Africa, Moldava, Cameroon and The Netherlands, India, Argentina; and of course we are always happy to see our visitors from the Vatican City State.

Please forgive me if you find me a bit harsh. I am filled with anger, righteous I hope; over the events of the last month in particular.

Let us pray for one another.

Orthodox or Heterodox: Choose your side

Father Alan MacDonald at Southern Orders says it is time to stop the use of words liberal and conservative as these are political terms. 

I agree.


Frankly, if you are "liberal" then you are heterodox. Simply speaking you are a bad Catholic and modernist and many of you are priests and bishops and cardinals and maybe even more!


Who are any of you to disturb so many on these fundamental matters of faith. You twisted the truth, you manipulated the process and you have offended the faithful; and I include in this the Bishop of Rome, Jorge Bergoglio!

Who are any of you where a mother who homeschools her five children and schools them in the faith says to me, "I am so confused" with reference to the Synod.

Who are any of you to cause a gentle and devout woman who assists her brother in caring for their elderly mother to ask, "is he an antipope?"

Who are you to cause a young man suffering from same-sex attraction and struggling with chastity to tell the Catholic man counselling in him, "the pope says it's okay now, I have a new boyfriend."

These are three little cases of three little people that are known to me. This is the fault of those that allowed the Synod to be lead by heterodox modernists with an agenda that ultimately is an abomination to the Blessed Sacrament and Eternal Truth.

The disturbance of the hearts and spirits of simple Catholics in the last few weeks is the proof that you have done the work of Satan!

The gloves are off and I'm not leaving the Church! You will not put me out.

Choose your sides friends.

And get ready to do battle.

Oh, and thank the Lord for Africa and Poland!

Holy Family was "irregular" -- Father Thomas Rosica, CSB



If there were any more evidence that the priests and others behind the scenes manipulating the Synod, no more evidence is necessary than that of one of Father Thomas Rosica's latest "Tweets." I found it quite telling actually that he submitted himself to be interviewed by Michael Voris during the Synod from Hell. Considering his past slander of Mr. Voris and his own emails harassing me from WYD Madrid that I have a "poor choice of friends" referring to Michael, things sure have changed. As English language spokesman and given Voris' audience and his credibility Rosica now must give the respect to Voris that he and the staff at CMTV deserve. 

The next year is not going to be easy and it will be one of continuing crisis leading up to the next Synod. The proof that these men are not done their manipulation, their heterodoxy, their heresy and their deceit, take one look at this Tweet by our friend.



So, the Holy Family was "irregular."

Please Father Rosica, I'm just a simple guy; why don't you use the combox to elucidate more on this pathetic and vulgar sentence? Is the picture below something with which you wish to compare the "one from Nazareth?"

An irregular family?

As I've been blocked by Rosica from sharing it on Twitter, there is more than one way to skin a cat, eh? This is what these so-called communication experts can't seem to figure out.

We're on to you.

We are not our parents and grandparents.

You will not get away with this.

Pure evil.


PostScript:


Father Tom Rosica is Executive Producer at Salt + Light (a failed Catholic cable channel of no hope with 1000 viewers, I get more blog hits a day than they have viewers). He is President of a 200 year old Catholic University which just sold off its property, has no students is reduced to a chaplaincy and exists only now as a "charter," -- it has a charter!). He is a Consultor to the Pontifical Council on Social Communications and a former Chaplain at Toronto's Newman Centre (where he attempted to have Catholics arrested for protesting the appearance of Vatican II peritus, ex-priest and heretic Gregory Baum.

If he meant that Mary was a virgin, Jesus was God in the Flesh, Joseph was told all of this by an angel, these are not the first things we think of when we refer to the Holy Family. To refer to the Holy Family as irregular is repugnant, it is blasphemous.

It also reveals clearly the intent.

This sham of a Synod, the secrecy engineered by Urdo, Forte, Lombardi and yes, Tom Rosica and sanctioned by the Pope himself and their intent to change doctrine by stealth is now plain to the world.

I know Tom Rosica. I know how he works since 20 years ago when I volunteered to teach Gregorian chant at the Newman Centre. This is pure Rosicanism.

They are not finished, they are coming back with a vengeance and we must be vigilant to stop them.

Calling the Holy Family "irregular' was no accident.

It was intentional - it was a signal to canonise those "irregular" families such as divorced and remarried, same-sex couples with adopted children or those conceived through a turkey-baster!

Raymond Leo Cardinal Burke - the complete interview of the Lion or Rome!

The man I've come to all in the last few weeks, the Lion or Rome, has done a great service to the Catholic world.

Here is the entire interview:

http://www.buzzfeed.com/ellievhall/interview-with-cardinal-raymond-burke-the-full-transcript#28ofd2

Excellent.

No stopping the Synod backlash - responsibility is with Pope Francis himself

Now that the Synod is wrapping up, we await the final report and whatever gift we are given tomorrow, Sunday.

Every Catholic must be indebted to Cardinal Burke, Cardinal Napier, Cardinal Pell to the Polish Bishops' Conference and to others whom we are not directly aware not within the English-speaking world. Make no mistake, the people behind the machinations and deception this week intended to change doctrine. It is a homosexual and modernist cabal deep inside the Church. They are masonic, they hate the Church, they hate Christ, they hate you and me. They are malefactors and they will be back again.

Two weeks ago, it was about the civilly divorced and remarried. The actions this week show the truth -- this Synod has been about:

  • The approval of sodomy and alternative family arrangements.
  • A dismissive attitude towards mortal sin.
  • A profanation of the Most Blessed Sacrament.
  • And as Cardinal Kasper revealed in his racist rant about Africa, a confederation of national churches under a first among equals. 


The scandal, the utter tragedy in all of this is to see the Holy Father, Pope Francis approve of all of it by not only his silence but by his apparent participation in political games of note-passing and head-nodding in the Synod hall. This is action beneath the Vicar of Christ, the Pope. It is an insult to Our Blessed Lord and to the Body of Christ -- the Church and you and I as members of Her.

It is time to put away two things; the first is this, the Holy Spirit does not directly elect the Pope. Second; papolatry is a violation of the First Commandment, it is not Catholic and never was. We have to face this friends, Christ is the Head, the Pope is His servant. He can make mistakes in prudential judgement and action and in the case of the last 18 months, there have been many.

Never could I have imagined a most senior Cardinal (Burke) ever calling out a Pope and state that the Pope is actively and positively doing "harm" to the Church. We've seen him lectured to do his "job" in a brilliant and humble column by Father Longenecker and the process denounced by Father Vincent Twomey. There is more, to be sure, including this report from Rorate.

We are facing a crisis unknown for at least five-hundred years and the protestant revolution. In fact, it may become the greatest crisis in seventeen-hundred years and the time of Arius. Do not underestimate that which we are facing and it must be said that the person responsible for this is Pope Francis himself. He called this Synod and appointed the antagonists, gave approval and promotion to the public heretic, racist, lying, calumniator, Kasper and he has not taken one step which the Catholic people need to see to reign him in or denounce him. Cardinal Kasper attempted yesterday to destroy a person's career to hide his own mistakes and Pope Francis says nothing.

These men, these malefactors have done great harm; they have disturbed the hearts and souls of millions of Catholics and they are doing evil.

Yesterday, I spoke with a good friend who has been counselling a young man that is struggling with same-sex attraction and chastity. The young man announced to him yesterday that he has a new "boyfriend" and he referred to the change that the Church has taken to justify it. You and I know that there is no "change" but as Cardinal Napier indicated, the damage is done.

Learn from the Prophet Ezechiel; "If, when I say to the wicked, Thou shalt surely die: thou declare it not to him, nor speak to him, that he may be converted from his wicked way, and live: the same wicked man shall die in his iniquity, but I will require his blood at thy hand."

Saint Luke and Saint Matthew both tell us of Our Lord's words, "he that shall scandalise one of these little ones that believes in me, it were better for him that a millstone should be hanged about his neck, and that he should be drowned in the depth of the sea." Jesus held nothing back. The people that have committed this scandal these last few weeks have done the work of Satan. The two paragraphs above apply. God will not be mocked and He is just. The young man referred to earlier has free choice, but those that confused him this week will be judged by God for what they did.

There is no blaming the media this week. The Church has a self-inflicted wound. The results of this Synod and an indictment of the Papacy of Jorge Bergoglio. Pray for the Pope that he upholds the faith and does not fall into heresy. The wolves that drove out our Benedict are still there, and with Pope Francis, they seem to have an open ear. We love Pope Francis, we must pray for him and convict ourselves for not doing so; but we cannot accept heresy! We cannot accept a change in doctrine through stealth or in any other way. 

Gird your loins and put on the helmet of salvation. Go to confession, go to Mass. Seek out proper liturgy. Pray the Mass and receive Holy Communion devoutly. Be vigilant. Do not break faith with the Truth.  The Truth is found in Tradition. When in doubt you follow what we have always followed. Truth is in Tradition, doctrine does not change. Revelation is not new, there are no "surprises." 

We are in a battle friends. Our Mother is besieged and violated. It is up to you and me to fight for Her. This is the glorious duty that we have that is not to be diminished. This is our time. This is our Crusade. This is our great blessing.

Ave Maria!

Viva Cristo Rey!






Edward Pantin responds to Cardinal Kasper's calumny

Friday, 17 October 2014

Cardinal Burke out, Cardinal Pell models St. Nicholas ... almost.

Cardinal Raymond Burke himself has confirmed the rumour that his time as Prefect of the Apostolic Signatura has come to an end. 

He is free now to lead the resistance against the modernist, masonic, homosexualist, heretical agenda being pushed upon the Catholic faith. 

Cardinal Pell pounds the table and demands and end to the manipulation! He will probably be fired next  by the Vicar of Christ!

Make no mistake, the Holy Spirit is not blessing this Synod, but He is there. He is there in the likes of Cardinals Burke, Napier and Pell and others. He is not there in the manipulation, the deceit, the managed game being played by Baldisseri, Rosica, Lombardi, Kasper, Forte and the rest of these men. Men that are not serving Christ and His Church and we the flock but there on own greed and lust and agenda of corruption and filth. Notes being passed back and forth like childish children or political hacks. Nods of approval or disapproval. This is not of God.

This Synod is a sham and it has been from before it even began. It is about a watering down of the faith by stealth. It is about sacrilege.

The cannot believe in the Real Presence, they cannot fear God. There can be no other explanation.

The buck stops somewhere for this disaster.

Qui tacet consentire videtur.



Cardinal Kasper obfuscates and denies and slanders

German Cardinal Walter Kasper continues to obfuscate the truth of what he said in Rome about Africa and its bishops.

Two days ago, the friend of Jorge Bergoglio, Bishop of Rome said that Africans "should not tell us too much what to do." When this broke on Zenit, pressure was exerted upon Zenit to remove the story and His Eminence denied it was said.

The journalist issued his own statement (below) which included a recording and states that the interview took place in St. Peter's Square in the presence of two other journalists, the Cardinal could clearly see that he was being recorded and at no time indicated that the conversation was off-the-record.

Now, instead of simply acknowledging his error and apologising to all involved, Cardinal Kasper attempts to discredit and defame journalist Edward Pentin accusing him of not using "reputable journalistic methods."

It is time for the Pope to start acting more like the Vicar of Christ and less like Barrack Obama.

This is unbecoming of a Cardinal. It is unbecoming of a Pope to allow this kind of behaviour to continue by someone professing to speak for him.

Kyrie, eleison.

Cardinal Kasper's Confusion

 Thursday, October 16, 2014 6:43 PM Comments (12)
Cardinal Walter Kasper denies giving reporter Edward Pentin an interview after the conversation appeared on Zenit Oct. 15.  Yet the interview did take place. 
Pentin approached the cardinal outside the synod hall on Oct. 14.  The recording is here.
The problem is Pentin had identified himself at that time as a Register correspondent, which he is. And the Register did publish Pentin’s story with the Cardinal’s remarks (which can be read here).
Pentin is a freelance writer so he also pitches news to other outlets, including Zenit. After filing the story on the cardinal’s interview with the Register but before it was published online, he posted the transcript at Zenit. Pentin has since apologized for not making known to the cardinal his intention to publish at Zenit.
But the cardinal's confusion should end there. The cardinal was shocked that his words appeared at Zenit. But he shouldn’t be shocked by the interview’s content. The words are his — and now anyone can listen to them. Really the confusion is why would he say them?

Nothing will ever be the same again

When the Masonic Press Agency tell you that the Master of the Grand Lodge of Italy says, "nothing will ever be the same again" you might want to consider it all part of their plan. 

Freemasonry was condemned by Leo XIII in Humanum genus.

United with their sodomites brothers they are now openly defying the doctrine and we are living it out.

They will not win.

They have played their hand.

God will not be mocked.

Newfoundland Archbishop calls to recognise homosexual unions!


As if the Catholic faithful of Newfoundland have not suffered enough at the hands of sodomite pederast priests and the corrupt Archbishops that covered up, now we have this report here by Pacheco on the Archbishop of St. John's desire that "same sex unions are accepted and respected in the church life."

You are confusing human respect with sodomite practice and sin.

You are a heretic, Sir.

You have betrayed your priesthood.


You have betrayed your people.


You are not fit to be an apostle!

You have betrayed Our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. 

Bring it on boys. Come on out, All of you. Come out, come out!

O Lord, deliver us from the filth of these wolves.

JORGE BERGOGLIO SELLS OUT SACRED PAPAL SISTINE CHAPEL FOR MONEY FROM PORCHE -- VIOLATES NORMS OF THE CONGREGATION OF DIVINE WORSHIP - AN ABOMINATION OF DESOLATION?

Pope Francis allows Sistine Chapel to be rented out for private corporate event

Private corporate event run by Porsche to be held amid Michelangelo's frescoes for first time

Pope Francis has for the first time allowed the Sistine Chapel to be rented out for a private corporate event, with the proceeds to go to charities working with the poor and homeless.
The concert, to be performed amid the splendour of Michelangelo's frescoes on Saturday, will be attended by a select group of about 40 high-paying tourists who have signed up to an exclusive tour of Italy organised by Porsche.
But as the unprecedented deal was announced, the Vatican announced that it would limit the number of visitors allowed inside the chapel to the current total of six million, amid fears that the frescoes are being damaged by the breath and sweat of so many tourists.
The Vatican would not divulge how much it will earn from the event, but the five-day tour of Rome arranged by the Porsche Travel Club costs up to 5,000 euros per head, meaning an overall price of 200,000 euros.
Participants are promised "a magnificent concert in the Sistine Chapel, with its ceiling frescoes painted by Michelangelo".
The concert will be performed by a choir from the Accademia di Santa Cecilia in Rome, which traces its origins back to the 16th century.
They will then sit down to a "gala dinner" in the midst of the Vatican Museums, "surrounded by masterpieces by world-famous artists such as Michelangelo and Raphael".
"It's a one-off event and a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity," a spokeswoman for the Porsche Travel Club told The Telegraph. "It will be the highlight of the trip."
The Pope is keen to put the Vatican's incomparable cultural heritage treasures to good use for the benefit of the needy.
Shortly after he was elected in March last year he called for a "poor Church for the poor".
Monsignor Paolo Nicolini, the administrative director of the Vatican Museums, said firms like Porsche would be asked to make a donation for the use of the Sistine Chapel, with the money then passed onto Catholic charities of the Pope's choice.
"It is an initiative which will support the Pope's charity projects. It is aimed at big companies which, through the payment of a fee, can contribute to charity activities," he said.
Concerts have been held in the Sistine Chapel before, but they have been for private Church audiences, including events held in honour of Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI.
It is believed this is the first time that the chapel, which was built by Pope Sixtus IV between 1473 and 1484, has been leased out to a company for a commercial event.
The Vatican would not say whether it was planning to strike similar deals with other companies.
The restriction on visits to six million a year could mean the introduction of a reservations-only booking system, rather than the current free-for-all in which tourists can book visits online, through travel agencies or queue outside the gates of the tiny city state.
"I am convinced that the Vatican Museums, in particular the Sistine Chapel, have reached the maximum number of visitors possible," said Antonio Paolucci, the director of the Vatican Museums.
The chapel has been fitted with new lighting and climate control systems which are designed to reduce the damage to the delicate frescoes.

Q:  What can a pastor say to a Catholic who feels bewildered by these winds of change?

A:  The faithful should take courage, because the Lord will never abandon his Church.  We should think about how the Lord calmed the sea in the storm and his words to his disciples:  “Why are you afraid, you men of little faith?” (Mt. 8:26).  If this time of confusion seems to put their faith at risk, they have to only work even harder to live a life that is truly Catholic.  But I am aware that to live in these times is a source of great suffering.

Q:  It is becoming difficult not to think of this as a time of chastisement.

A:  I think about this first of all concerning myself.  If I am suffering at this time because of the situation in the Church, I think that the Lord is telling me that I have need of purification.  And I also think that, if the suffering is so widespread, this means that the whole Church is in need of purification.  But this is not because of a God who is waiting only to punish us.  This is because of our own sins.  If in some way we have betrayed doctrine, moral teaching or the liturgy, it follows inevitably that we will undergo a suffering that purifies us to put us back again on the narrow way.

Read the rest there, including my little friend who delights in mocking everything that this humble and holy lion says.

Is Cardinal Kasper racist and a liar or does he suffer from dementia?


It is not bad enough that Cardinal Kasper appears to be a racist with his statements about Africa, now it appears that he is also a liar. Either that, or the octogenarian Cardinal suffers from an onset of dementia and has no business being a involved with the synodal process.

The friend and confident of Jorge Bergoglio, Bishop of Rome in a conversation with Kath.net, denied the alleged statements made yesterday about Africa and its bishops published by Zenit and now removed.

“I am shocked. I have never spoken like this about Africans, and I would never do so. Zenit has, in the past days and weeks, never reached out to me, nor has it had an interview with me,” Kasper is reported to have said.

Zenit took down the interview which appears below "Is Cardinal Kasper a racist."

In response, the interviewer Edward Pentin, reprints the interview and provides the following statement:



In response to a statement from His Eminence Cardinal Kasper denying giving the interview that appeared in ZENIT Wednesday 15th October, I issue the following response:
His Eminence Cardinal Walter Kasper spoke to me and two other journalists, one British, the other French, around 7.15pm on Tuesday as he left the Synod hall.
I transcribed the recording of our conversation, and my iPhone on which I recorded the exchange was visible. I introduced myself as a journalist with the [National Catholic] Register, and the others also introduced themselves as journalists. I therefore figured the interview was on the record and His Eminence appeared happy to talk with us. In the end, I posted the full interview in ZENIT rather than the Register. ZENIT removed the article on Thursday in response to Cardinal Kasper’s denial.
His Eminence made no comment about not wanting his remarks published. It depends on the context, but normally in such a situation, comments are considered on the record unless otherwise requested.
The recording can be downloaded below. A couple of the questions came from the other two journalists and I included them as part of the interview. Some of the quality of the English has also been improved for publication.

00:00
07:53

If there was a misunderstanding, I apologise, but I stand by the interview that was published as a correct account of the exchange.
How much longer will Pope Francis allow this scandal to continue?
