Common Witness and Service are the watchwords. Unity in Christ and His Church is still not possible. Lutherans simply don't believe what we believe! Luther's errors long ago refuted by the Catholic Church and Bergoglio cannot change that!

Egbert II van Heemskerck - Calvin and Luther in Hell
The "Reformation" has brought no "gifts." It has lead millions of souls to Hell. No gifts, unless you call the uncrowning of Our Lord Jesus Christ as King over society, "a gift." This Reformation created a "religion of man," and of self, out of which came Illuminism, Freemasonry, sexual libertinism, marxism, globalism and radical secularism. Some gifts Jorge, some gifts.

Luther was a liar and a deceiver and his work has long ago been condemned.

This malefactor, this heretical priest tore Europe apart and it has never recovered. He tore the Holy Mass and Holy Sacraments apart and Holy Scripture. He tore seven books out the Old Testament and called the Epistle of St. James the Apostle, "straw." Had he been able, he would have removed it.

Yet, what does our Bishop of Rome, Jorge Bergoglio say?

"Luther took a great step by putting the Word of God into the hands of the people."

Is he just ignorant of the truth, facts and logic, or is he trying to deceive?

Cost and access to Holy Scripture

The Holy Bible was already available in German and the first bible in English was produced in 1380 by John Wycliffe, an Oxford Professor. It was hand-written. Why? Because there was no printing press invented until 1450! 

Then as now, the cost of producing a book, in this case the Holy Bible, was comprised of two things, the material with which to construct it and the time and labour associated with that production. Now think about this for a moment. In Ontario, from where I write this, a generally low skilled clerical wage is about $20.00 per hour. It would take ten months, -- ten months to hand write the Holy Bible. That would equal a total of $36,000 in labour costs, plus benefits and I am not even considering any artistic illumination. While a monk would not have been paid, we can begin to appreciate the cost of production of a bible. Consider the time. It would then need to be bound. Is it fair to conclude that a Holy Bible anytime prior to the inventing of the printing press would have been in today's equivalent of $50,000 or more? Is it any wonder that churches and universities and libraries chained the bible and other books? How many Protestants accused Catholics of doing that to keep Catholic from reading it? 

Medieval literacy 

According to Bergoglio, Luther put the bible in the hands of the people to read. Who could damn well read? The literacy rate in 1500 ranged from as low as 5% in rural Germany to a high approaching 40% in England thanks to the Monastery system. These rates plummeted after Henry VIII's dissolution, a man who was ironically granted the title, "Defender of the Faith" by the Pope for his treatise on the Seven Sacraments and his condemnation of Martin Luther as a heretic whom, Henry wanted executed for heresy!

So, if bibles were available, they were unaffordable and most people could not read. The printing press, of course, began to change this. The very Council of Trent also used the printing press to codify and unify the Mass in 1570, the Mass we still have today according to the 1962 Missal. Before that, Missals were handwritten. You can imagine again how few there were and how they may have varied from place to place.

But Francis buys in, he buys in to the Protestant lie.Good grief, if we wanted pulp like this we could read a cartoon tract from the late Jack Chick, instead, we get it regurgitated from the Bishop of Rome himself. Are we that stupid, that ignorant of history to think that there was public education throughout history and the Internet? Do these churchmen think that we are that ignorant and stupid as Hillary Clinton thinks Americans are?

Today's headlines.

From Reuters: Pope, in Sweden, says Reformation had positive aspects

From Crux: Pope in Sweden heaps praise on Martin Luther

We must desire that those who follow this heretic come home to the Catholic Church. All "Christians" have this obligation, all Catholics have the duty to pray for them and for unity and reconciliation and to teach them the truth. Some people, such as Jorge Bergoglio, call that "proselytising." He goes further to call it a "sin" against oecumenism. One cannot sin against a word or an act. One sins against God.

True oecumenism will come from clarity

We must speak with clarity and indeed, charity to our Lutheran, Anglican, Presbyterian, Baptist, Evangelical brothers and sisters and those others such as Jehovah's Witnesses, Mormons, Seventh-Day Adventists and more. It is our duty to proclaim the fullness of the Jews' Judaism is found in Jesus Christ and His Church and to Muslims that their Jesus is not the real Jesus and to Hindus, Buddhists and other pagans that they too, must come to Jesus Christ and His Church. 

We must never force or coerce, we cannot and we do not. Why does this Bergoglio think that we do? We must propose but we must do so with clear and unambiguous teaching and proclamation.

In reference to those who follow the heretical Lutheran sect, this "prayer" below, by the Bishop of Rome fails them. He fails us as Catholics.

Church has refuted Luther
Image result for luther death mask
Luther's death mask 

Martin Luther's errors have long been refuted by the Catholic Church. Try as he might, Bergoglio cannot ever refute them or overturn them.


The followers of the heretic Luther do not believe in Transubstantiation. They do not believe in the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Jesus Christ truly present. Their doctrine is a false doctrine. Christ is "spiritually" present above, around, as long as we want him to be. When their "service" is over, the wine is poured down the drain and the bread back in the box for next time. They have openly "gay" so-called "bishops." They have women dressed up as "bishops." Their "bishops" do not even pretend to believe in apostolic succession.

How can you have a "common eucharist" with people who do not accept what It is!


Now, I would rather be accused of wearing a tin-foiled hat than being naive. Do we know see the link between the gutting of the Congregation for Divine Worship? Will the Novus Ordo Missae, which was very subtle in its Lutherenesque influence now be reformed for a something more formal? Are these men hand-picked by Francis, which of course is his juridical right, about to foist upon the Catholic world, another new liturgy that will be without doubt, the "abomination of desolation?"

This prayer spoken by Bergoglio is for unity of heart and mind. It is not a prayer of a restoration of faith.  It calls instead for "common witness and service in the world" and continues to leave people, individual followers of the heretic Luther, without the Sacraments of Confirmation, Penance and the Holy Eucharist, it leaves them without Extreme Unction, it leaves their clergy without validity, uneducated and without grace of office to fall into more error. 

What a tragedy, that the Bishop of Rome should visit baptised Christians and not tell them the truth, but leave them wanting.

O Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on us for failing to proclaim your Truth.

Piero Marini - Coming soon to the Bergoglian Church

The appointment of Piero Marini to the Congregation of Divine Worship shows the farce that is this papacy.

Let us look back at a brief pictorial exercise of some of this malefactors finer liturgical presentations.

Because with Piero Marini, the Sacrifice of Christ is not enough.

Only a Freemason could think this is worthy.

The Novus Ordo is irreformable. It is a dying liturgy. It will not transform, it will not convert. It is an insult to God.

Get out of it if you can. Get to the traditional Mass, the Ordinariate Mass and if the SSPX is  your only option, take it!  If not, find the best priest and the most properly celebrated new Rite Mass you can.

Another earthquake in Italy - Norcia monastery of Sts. Benedict and Scholastica destroyed! - Quake felt in Rome, Bergoglio to Lund to praise Luther

A 6.6 magnitude earthquake struck this morning in Italy again, destroying the Basilica of Sts. Benedict and Scholastica in Norcia. The Basilica was already damaged after the previous quake. People have been rescued, no deaths are yet confirmed.

The quake was felt in Rome, again.

Today is the Feast of Christ the King; a feast proclaimed by Pope Pius XI to acknowledge the Social Kingship of Jesus Christ and to refute the "Reformation Sunday" on the Last Sunday of October proclaimed by Protestants. Tomorrow, Jorge Bergoglio, one of the two apparent Bishops of Rome, will travel to Lund, Sweden to thank God for Martin Luther.

Antonio Socci reports on Cardinal Müller to German Radio: We have two popes!

"He resigned for obscure reasons but in reality, he remains Pope." 

Image result for benedict francis

Antonio Socci quotes Cardinal Müller the Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith speaking to Vatican Radio's German language station. 


Written 28 Oct, 2016

Winston Churchill said that the Kremlin (at that time under the Communist regime) was "a dilemma wrapped in a mystery wrapped in an enigma".

Something similar could be said today of the Vatican. Perhaps it is also this aura of secrecy - in addition to the solemnity and beauty of the "location" - that a [TV] series, as banal and surreal like "The young pope" is so successfull.

Much more exciting than the [TV] fiction are the mysteries of the real Vatican. Where, for the first time in Church history, a pope - after months of heavy attacks - "resigned" (for unknown reasons), but in fact remaining pope.

A Vatican where today two popes live, without anyone explaining how this is possible, since it has always been taught that there can be only one Successor of Peter.

[A Vatican] Where - probably - something important is happening these days behind the impenetrable silence of the sacred palaces.

Unfortunately, the media has seemed, for a while, uninterested in information about the Church and the Holy See, perhaps because they are too busy in the celebrations and the "hosannas".

The fact is that no one, at least in Italy, seems to have noticed an explosive interview with the number 2 of the Church, Cardinal. Gerhard Ludwig Müller, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (the role held by Card. Ratzinger at the time of John Paul II).

It was Benedict XVI who called him there [at the CDF] and later Francis confirmed him there and made him a  Cardinal. However, because of deep divergences on doctrinal reforms wanted by Francis in the two synods on the family, relations between the two have led to the substantial isolation of Müller respect to Francis's executive team.


Therefore Müller, who is also the editor of the complete works of Ratzinger, the day before yesterday gave an interview to the German version of Vatican Radio where, the first time, a top Vatican official poses the problem of the coexistence of  the two popes, and where he meekly reveals that there is an ongoing debate beyond the Tiber [ie at the Vatican] where, he proposes a surprising scenario will take place.

The Cardinal said:

"For the first time in the history of the Church we have the case of two legitimate living popes. Certainly only Pope Francis is THE Pope, but Benedict is the emeritus, so somehow he is still tied to the papacy. This unprecedented situation needs to be addressed theologically and spiritually. On how to do it, there are different opinions. I have shown that even with all the diversity that relate to the person and the character - which are given by nature - that the internal link must also be made visible. "

But - the journalist asks - what does "this inner connection" consist of? Müller's answer:

"This is to profess [to proclaim the faith in] Jesus Christ, Who is the 'ratio essendi ', the true foundation of the papacy, Who holds the Church together in the unity in Christ ... ".

It seems an abstract , theological, answer, but it actually refers to Muller's words earlier, making us understand that the "Petrine ministry" of Benedict XVI continues still. Something that is confirmed in the continuation of the interview

In fact, the journalist asks: "What do two popes together offer the Church?" (two who are popes simultaneously)?

Müller's response:
"Both exercise an office that they didn't give to themselves, nor are they able to define: an office that is already 'defined' by Christ Himself, as it has been understood by the believing conscience of the Church. And each man  experiences within the papal office - as in every other ecclesial office - a weight that one can only bear with the help of grace. "

These are surprising words. Because here Müller does not at all say - as has so far been heard - that Benedict XVI is basically no longer Pope, he does not say at all that is a pensioner who has no role in the Church, he does not say at all that he is something similar to the "bishops emeriti," as Pope Bergoglio affirms.

He [Muller] says, that Francis and Benedict XVI, "both exercise an office" that is the "Papal office". And he says that this unprecedented situation, of "two legitimate living popes", "needs to be addressed theologically and spiritually. "

Therefore Müller seems to be going in the same direction as in the sensational conference, on 21 May, at the Gregorian [University in Rome], of Msgr. Georg Gänswein, secretary of  Benedict XVI and the Prefect of the Pontifical Household of Francis.


In that talk, which had an explosive effect in the Vatican (but the Press ignored it), Gänswein said among other things:

"Before and after his resignation, Benedict has understood and understands his task as a participation in the 'Petrine' Ministry. He left the Papal Throne and yet, with the step [he took] on 11 February 2013, did not abandon this Ministry at all. Instead, he integrated the personal office with a collegial and synodal dimension, almost a ministry in common. "


"Since the election of his successor Francesco on March 13, 2013, there are not, then, two popes, but 'de facto' there is an expanded ministry, with an active member and a contemplative member. This is why Benedict XVI has not given up his name, nor the white cassock. For this the proper form with which to address him is still 'Holiness'; and for this, also, he did not retire to a monastery in isolation, but he is within the Vatican, as if he had only made a step to the side to make room for his successor and for a new stage in the history of the papacy. "

Therefore, not a step backwards, but only a step to the side. The Bishop Conference. Gänswein was explosive, but one had to wait a couple of months to get a reaction: an interview with a canonist of the Curia, where Gänswein was never mentioned, which entitled : "A shared papacy cannot exist "

The 'Bergoglian' journalist Andrea Tornielli, author of this interview, began by saying that Francis himself had already replied: " 'There is only one pope. Benedict XVI is the Emeritus'. Last June, during the return flight from Armenia, Francis had responded in a clear and precise manner to a question on the theories concerning the possibility of a 'shared' papal ministry.

If the pope had already responded what need was there to also get a canonist talking two months later? Perhaps because the matter was not at all closed? maybe because - as Müller says today - "there are different opinions"?

In fact the previous statements of Msgr. Gänswein and the statements of Card. Müller today, demonstrate that the issue is entirely open.


But above all it was Benedict XVI himself to open the issue, not only with choice of an emeritus papacy, but also with the words of his last speech, where he explained that the Petrine ministry was "forever" in his life and added: "My decision to give up the active exercise of the ministry, does not revoke this fact".

Then in his recent best-selling book, "Last Conversations", Pope Benedict dedicated a page to explain his current situation and he did this with a few sober words, but in perfect congruity with the intervention of his secretary in may and with that of Müller. He says that his was not "an escape, but another way to remain true to my ministry." And he adds that he continues to be pope "in a deeper, more intimate, sense".

Today Müller says that "the internal link" that ties the two popes together and binds them to guard the "Depositim Fidei" (that is to defend the Catholic Faith) , "must be made visible"


Maybe it's a lifeboat that Benedict is offering to Francis, in order to help him to continue his work, but remaining within the railroad tracks of orthodoxy - thus avoiding bad choices (and Bergoglio makes many of them) and tragic schisms.

In light of all this one better understands the collaborative tones that Benedict uses with Francis in his book; and also the new volume[book] by Muller attempts to reconcile the two pontificates under the title "Benedict & Francis. Successors of Peter at the Church's service "

Bergoglio embarrassed by Catholics - prefers false ecumenism to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass! Praises Luther's bastard bible!

Image result for pope francis luther

n an interview with the Jesuitical publication the Bishop of Rome, Jorge Bergoglio praised Martin Luther for his bible and putting it in the hands of people and expressed his regret at being scheduled to offer Mass in Lund.

Luther, you will recall, removed seven books from the Old Testament and attempted to gut the New, particularly the Book of James as it would not support his heresy.

Bergoglio wanted to only experience an ecumencal "prayer" with the heresiarch's descendants and intended to neglect the few Catholics in Lund.

Yes, you read that correctly, 

The man is an abomination. A disgrace to the Church. A danger to Catholics. A betrayer of  Christ. 

He is an egotistical arrogant man, only relenting to offer Mass because he was badgered and did not want to disappoint them.

What a disgrace.

ROME - At first, Pope Francis did not want to celebrate a Catholic Mass in Sweden in order to preserve Monday’s ecumenical witness at the joint Catholic-Lutheran commemoration of the Reformation in Lund, he revealed in an interview released today.
He later changed his mind after reflecting on his role as pastor of the Catholic community, and in response to a request from the local Church. But he put the Mass on the following day, Tuesday, in order to “avoid confusing” the ecumenical event with the Catholic one.
The pope revealed his decision-making process in an interview with the Swedish Jesuit journal Signum released in English October 28 on the website of Civiltà Cattolica magazine.
In the interview with Father Ulf Jonsson, a fellow Jesuit, the pope also discusses his relationships with Lutherans from his days as a Jesuit and later archbishop in Buenos Aires, and said Catholics could learn from the Lutheran tradition in the areas of church reform and Scripture.
Noting how the words “Catholic” and “sectarian” were in contradiction, he said: “This is why at the beginning I wasn’t planning to celebrate a Mass for the Catholics on this trip. I wanted to insist on an ecumenical witness.”
“Then I reflected well on my role as pastor of a flock of Catholics who will also come from other countries, like Norway and Denmark,” he said. “So, responding to the fervent request of the Catholic community, I decided to celebrate a Mass, lengthening the trip by a day.”
By celebrating the Mass on Tuesday, rather than Monday, “the ecumenical encounter is preserved in its profound significance according to a spirit of unity - that is my desire,” the pope said.
“This has created organizational issues, I know, because I will be in Sweden for All Saints Day, which is important here in Rome. But in order to avoid misunderstanding, I wanted it to be so.”
The future pope first stepped inside a Lutheran church aged 17 in Buenos Aires for the wedding of a Lutheran colleague at the laboratory where he worked part-time. Years later, while teaching as a Jesuit at the Colegio Máximo, he became close to a Lutheran professor of spiritual theology, Anders Ruuth, after he invited him to lecture there.
“That was a truly difficult time for my soul,” he recalled. “But I had a lot of trust in him and opened my heart to him. He helped me a lot in that moment.”
Pope Francis also described attending the so-called Swedish church in Buenos Aires while an auxiliary bishop in the early 1990s, and later - as cardinal-archbishop - having what he describes as a “good relationship” with the pastor of the Danish Lutheran church in Buenos Aires, with whom he had a disagreement over “a law concerning religious issues in Argentina.”
Asked what the Catholic Church could learn from the Lutheran tradition, Pope Francis said Martin Luther “wanted to remedy a complex situation” but his reform ended up splitting the Church because of the confusion of temporal and spiritual.
But he said reform in the Church was “fundamental, because the Church is semper reformanda (always to be reformed),” adding that prior to the 2013 conclave “the request for a reform was alive” in the cardinals’ discussions about the state of the Church.
He said Catholics could also learn from Luther’s emphasis on Scripture.
“Luther took a great step by putting the Word of God into the hands of the people,” he said.

Pope Francis sets his sites on Congregation of Divine Worship - is this the undermining of Cardinal Sarah?

If you needed more indication that the Reform of the Reform is dead, then this is it. The Novus Ordo liturgy is irreformable. There is no saving it. Get out of it and get to the traditional liturgy only or as often as you can. It is what you will need to strengthen you for this storm we are in. It cannot convert, it cannot convict.  

Cardinals Burke, Ranjith, Bagnasco, Pell are out. This is a wholesale change and not with recent precedent. Usually, one or two members are changed at a time providing continuity. Not this time. Every single member has been replaced and Cardinal Sarah has been isolated.

Worse, the Bugnini syocophant, Piero Marini is back.

So what does this mean?

It means that you need to do everything you can to get out of the Novus Ordo Mass and more importantly if you cannot, the novus ordo mentality - novus ordo, the New Order! You need to get to the traditional Mass and away from these devils.

Priests, you must learn the traditional liturgy and prepare to transition to it. They will force upon you something that you cannot accept. It has been prophesied by many mystics and we are now living it.

It is the official and formal death of the Reform of the Reform. It is a repudiation of everything Joseph Ratzinger cared about and attempted to reform. Let him enjoy now the fruits of his horrible renunciation of the papacy. He will suffer with this. Good. Let him repent of his decision and abandoning his flock, abandoning his children to the wolves. 

It means that this Pope is planning something with the Mass and he needs his people to carry it out. It is also curious that it comes immediately before his trip to Lund to praise the heresiarch Martin Luther.

It also means, in my view, a stealth attack on the traditional Mass through some kind of "reform" or an outright and open attack on Summorum Pontificum.

Let them try because to quote Michael Moore, "it will be the biggest "blank you" in the history of the papacy!

Image result for pope angryThe move will be considered an attempt to rein in the Cardinal, Pope overhauls Cardinal Sarah’s department

Pope Francis today appointed a raft of new members to Cardinal Robert Sarah’s liturgy department, choosing a series of pastoral moderates to replace more conservative-minded figures.

The move will be read as the Pope’s attempt to rein in the cardinal who has consistently called for priests to celebrate Mass facing East, something the Pope reprimanded him for earlier this year.

Image result for cardinal sarah pope francisAmong the new members of the department – formally known as the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments – are Piero Marini, a long-serving master of papal ceremonies and a key proponent of the liturgical reforms of the Second Vatican Council.

Others named as members, who will effectively oversee Cardinal Sarah’s work and vote on decisions, include Cardinal Pietro Parolin (Vatican Secretary of State) and New Zealand Cardinal John Dew.

Cardinal Sarah, from Guinea, has consistently called for priests to turn their backs on the congregation while celebrating Mass (Really, how long to we need to put up with these derelict Catholic writers, it's time to drain the swamp. Vox) and has struck a very different tone to the Pope’s merciful approach to families in difficult circumstances. Francis this week spoke at the St John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family in place of the cardinal, where he stressed the importance of priests accompanying families struggling to live up to the
Church’s teaching on family life.

The complete list of department members is as follows:

Trump says Clinton policy on Syria would lead to World War III

We've known this right?

If you've read this blog for the last week, you know my views on American policy in Syria and the blood on the hands of Obama, Clinton, McCain and others.

America has aided and abetted the so-called Islamic State as it butchered tens to hundreds of thousands of Christians, Yazidis and other Moslems in its march across thousands of square miles. The malefactor in the White House sat there. He will be held to account for creating the monster. He deserves trial and prison and God's judgement.

Clinton is no better, she is worse.

Donald J. Trump has it all figured out.


Is God warning us? Is he warning Francis and the Church?

Only weeks after a devastating earthquake in Italy, two more have occurred and both were feld in Rome.

Is there a message here?

We are a few days from the trip to be made by the Bishop of Rome to Lund, Sweden, to commemorate with heretics the revolution in the Church and Europe unleashed by Martin Luther. A revolution that gave rise not only to Protestantism, but out it, illuminism, freemasonry and communism now pushing us all to globalism and dictatorship. It is the exaltation of man over God. It is the dictates of the State over the individual. It is the manipulation of the masses by the few.

True ecumenism is what is desired, what is longed for by Catholics. Calling those who have fallen for the lies of Luther, Zwingli, Calvin, Knox and countless others, home, home to the One, True, Faith is our desire. No triumphalism but a family reunion. 

Rather than call them home, this Pope, and frankly his last five predecessors have compromised and souls have been lost.

The place for the Pope is in Rome, not Lund.

"Blessings and honour and glory and power be unto him. Amen."

Who sat by whilst these people lost their lands, those their homes, their churches, their children? 

Who did this to them? 

Who funded the monsters? 

Who delivered to them, their weaponry?

Who stood by and played golf whilst this happened?

Accursed be them.

Archbishop of Zagreb bans Cardinal Burke from Offering Holy Mass in the Traditional Rite!

GloriaTV is reporting that the Archbishop of Zagreb, Josip Cardinal Bozanić has barred Raymond Cardinal Burke from offering the Holy Mass according to the traditional rite, what Benedict XVI referred to in Summorum Pontificum as the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite. 


On Twitter, Edward Pentin is stating that the "organizers arranged the whole thing without informing" the chancery or archbishop. This may be what he has been told from them.

First, no cardinal, no bishop can ban the offering of Holy Mass according to the traditional rite. However, a bishop does have the right to refuse another bishop entry into his diocese without his permission. At the rank of Cardinal, this is different; Cardinal Burke needs no permission to enter any diocese as he is a, Cardinal. The complication comes in with Zagreb's archbishop also being a Cardinal.

If the organizers did not advise the chancery, that was their mistake. It was imprudent and foolish.

The Archbishop of  Zagreb, however, has acted inappropriately and needlessly created an ugly situation that did not need to happen.

There is a new phrase in Rome, and Cardinal Burke has become a verb.

He was "burked" and now so too, has the Mass.

The Archbishop of Zagreb owes Catholics an explanation and Cardinal Burke, an apology.
