Epiphany 2017 - Post II: The betrayal of Christ by the Jews and the contradiction of Pope Gregory the Great by Pope Bergoglio

Image result for epiphany

How many times has our Bishop of Rome, stated that "proselytism is solemn nonsense," or that "proselytism is a sin." How many times has he prayed in Synagogues and even Mosques, as he did in Africa actually bowing to the vaginal shaped asteroid within the Kabaa in Mecca, how many times has he done that and refused to preach this!

"Concerning this doctrine the Pope of Vatican I, Pius IX, spoke on two different occasions. In an allocution (address to an audience) on December 9th, 1854 he said: We must hold as of the faith, that out of the Apostolic Roman Church there is no salvation; that she is the only ark of safety, and whosoever is not in her perishes in the deluge; we must also, on the other hand, recognize with certainty that those who are invincible in ignorance of the true religion are not guilty for this in the eyes of the Lord. And who would presume to mark out the limits of this ignorance according to the character and diversity of peoples, countries, minds and the rest?
Again, in his encyclical Quanto conficiamur moerore of 10 August, 1863 addressed to the Italian bishops, he said: 
It is known to us and to you that those who are in invincible ignorance of our most holy religion, but who observe carefully the natural law, and the precepts graven by God upon the hearts of all men, and who being disposed to obey God lead an honest and upright life, may, aided by the light of divine grace, attain to eternal life; for God who sees clearly, searches and knows the heart, the disposition, the thoughts and intentions of each, in His supreme mercy and goodness by no means permits that anyone suffer eternal punishment, who has not of his own free will fallen into sin."

From Matins (The Office of Readings in the must abridged modernist Liturgy of the Hours) for the Feast of the Epiphany has these readings from St. Leo the Great (I - III) and two from St. Gregory the Great (VIII and IX):

Reading I: Dearly beloved brethren, rejoice in the Lord; again I say, rejoice. But a few days are past since the solemnity of Christ's Birth, and now the glorious light of His Manifestation is breaking upon us. On that day the Virgin brought Him forth, and on this the world knew Him. The Word made Flesh was pleased to reveal Himself by degrees to those for whom He had come. When Jesus was born He was manifested indeed to the believing, but hidden from His enemies. Already indeed the heavens declared the glory of God, and their sound went out into all lands, when the Herald Angels appeared to tell to the shepherds the glad tidings of a Saviour's Birth; and now the guiding star leadeth the wise men to worship Him, that from the rising of the sun to the going down thereof, the Birth of the true King may be known abroad; that through those wise men the kingdoms of the east might learn the great truth, and the Roman empire remain no more in darkness. 
Reading II: The very cruelty of Herod, when he strove to crush at His birth this King Whom he alone feared, was made a blind means to carry out this dispensation of mercy. While the tyrant with horrid guilt sought to slay the little Child he did not know, amid an indiscriminate slaughter of innocents, his infamous act served to spread wider abroad the heaven-told news of the Birth of the Lord. Thus were these glad tidings loudly proclaimed, both by the novelty of their story, and the iniquity of their enemies. Then was the Saviour borne into Egypt, that nation, of a long time hardened in idolatry, might by the mysterious virtue which went out of Him, even when His presence was unknown, be prepared for the saving light so soon to dawn on them, and might receive the Truth as a wanderer even before they had banished falsehood. 
Reading III: Dearly beloved brethren, we recognize in the wise men who came to worship Christ, the first-fruits of that dispensation to the Gentiles wherein we also are called and enlightened. Let us then keep this Feast with grateful hearts, in thanksgiving for our blessed hope, whereof it doth commemorate the dawn. From that worship paid to the new-born Christ is to be dated the entry of us Gentiles upon our heirship of God and co-heirship with Christ. Since that joyful day the Scriptures which testify of Christ have lain open for us as well as for the Jews. Yea, their blindness rejected that Truth, Which, since that day, hath shed Its bright beams upon all nations. Let all observance, then, be paid to this most sacred day, whereon the Author of our salvation was made manifest, and as the wise men fell down and worshipped Him in the manger, so let us fall down and worship Him enthroned Almighty in heaven. As they also opened their treasures and presented unto Him mystic and symbolic gifts, so let us strive to open our hearts to Him, and offer Him from thence some worthy offering.
Reading VIII: Thus also we remark that afterwards the Redeemer was preached among the Gentiles not by Himself, but by His Apostles, even as, when a little Child, He is shown to them, not by the voice of angels, but merely by the vision of a star. When He Himself had begun to speak He was made known to us by speakers, but when He lay silent in the manger, by that silent testimony in heaven. But whether we consider the signs which accompanied His birth or His death, this thing is wonderful, namely, the hardness of heart of the Jews, who would not believe in Him either for prophesying or for miracles.
Reading IX: All things which He had made, bore witness that their Maker was come. Let me reckon them after the manner of men. The heavens knew that He was God, and sent a star to shine over where He lay. The sea knew it, and bore Him up when He walked upon it. The earth knew it, and quaked when He died. The sun knew it, and was darkened. The rocks and walls knew it, and rent at the hour of His death. Hell knew it, and gave up the dead that were in it. And yet up to this very hour the hearts of the unbelieving Jews will not acknowledge that He to Whom all nature testified is their God, and, being more hardened than the rocks, refuse to be rent by repentance.
On this day, when we celebrate the Manifestation to the Gentiles of Our Lord, let us remember that, notwithstanding the masonic, globalist errors of this and refusal to preach that "there is no salvation outside the Church" except in those cases listed above, the truth is what remains. 

In this modern age, when Jews and infidels and pagans come to the Vatican and with the knowledge available to them; when the Pope refuses to preach the truth; when they refuse to even seek it by "natural law." what hope do either of them have for salvation?

Invincible ignorance for someone in darkest Afghanistan is one thing, I get that; but for those educated, internet connected Jews and Hollywood glitterati who visit with Pope Bergoglio? That is quite another.

What does it say about a Vicar of Christ who bows to Mecca to an idol, an asteroid of all things shaped like a vulva!

What possible prayers could one offer to this?

 Do Jews and Mohammedans not deserve the Truth that they might be saved?

That's right, Vox. The Talmud and the Rabbi are no less an impediment to salvation for the Jews than the Koran and the Imam are for the Saracen.

Thank you for saying so. A lot of Catholics especially in the U.S. of AIPAC fear not only saying so, but in even thinking it. Opposition to Islam has to be on Catholic terms and no others'.

The Church's interests, i.e. the salvation of otherwise perfidious and infidel souls, supersede all political interests. Catholics oppose those who oppose Christ, be they cloak and dagger opponents or brigands beating on the door.

Catholics oppose both Sharia AND the Kahal. Neither has a place under the jurisdiction of Christ the King.

Peter Lamb said...

Talmudic jews and muslims hate Christ with equal passion. Here is the politically incorrect Catholic position on the jews:

“The Jews, who killed both the Lord Jesus and the prophets, and have persecuted us, do not please God, and they are adversaries to all men, prohibiting us from speaking to the Gentiles that they may be saved, to fill up their sin always: for the wrath of God has come upon them to the end.”
— St. Paul, I Thessalonians 2:14-16

“You stiff-necked people, with uncircumcised hearts and ears! You are just like your fathers: You always resist the Holy Spirit! Was there ever a prophet your fathers did not persecute? They even killed those who predicted the coming of the Righteous One. And now you have betrayed and murdered him, you who have received the law that was put into effect through angels but have not obeyed it.”
–St. Stephen, Acts 7:51-53

“It would be licit, according to custom, to hold the Jews in perpetual servitude because of their crime.”
— St. Thomas Aquinas

“Crucifiers of Christ ought to be held in continual subjection.”
— Pope Innocent III

“The Lord made Cain a wanderer and fugitive over the earth, but set a mark upon him, lest anyone finding him might slay him. Thus the Jews, against whom the blood of Christ calls out, although they ought not be killed, nevertheless as wanderers they must remain upon the earth until their faces be filled with shame and they seek the name of Jesus Christ the Lord.”
— Pope Innocent III

“Ungrateful for favors and forgetful of benefits, the Jews return insult for kindness and impious contempt for goodness granted. They ought to know the yoke of perpetual enslavement because of their guilt. See to it that the perfidious Jews never in the future grow insolent, but that in servile fear they always suffer publicly the shame of their sin.”
— Pope Gregory IX

“Let the Gospel be preached to them and, if they remain obstinate, let them be expelled.”
— Pope Leo VII

Peter Lamb said...

“One who dies a Jew will be damned.”
— St. Vincent Ferrer

“The Jews are enemies of God and foes of our holy religion.”
— Padre Pio.

“The Jews were unworthy to perceive the meaning of the divinely-inspired Scriptures which speak of the mystery of Christ. And because they had taken no notice of the truth, they made themselves unworthy of the salvation which flows from Christ.”
— St. Cyril of Alexandria

“Jews are slayers of the Lord, murderers of the prophets, enemies and haters of God, adversaries of grace, enemies of their fathers’ faith, advocates of the devil, a brood of vipers, slanderers, scoffers, men of darkened minds, the leaven of Pharisees, a congregation of demons, sinners, wicked men, haters of goodness!”
— St. Gregory of Nyssa

“The Jews wander over the entire earth, their backs bent and their eyes cast downward, forever calling to our minds the curse they carry with them.”
-St. Augustine

“If someone should kill the beloved son of a man, and then stretch forth their hands still stained with blood to the afflicted father, asking for fellowship, would not the blood of his son, visible on the hand of his murderer, provoke him to just anger instead? And such are the prayers of the Jews, for when they stretch forth their hands in prayer, they only remind God-the-Father of their sin against His Son. And at every stretching-forth of their hands, they only make it obvious that they are stained with the blood of Christ. For they who persevere in their blindness inherit the blood-guilt of their fathers; for they cried out: “His blood be upon us, and upon our children” (Matthew xxvii.25).”
— St. Basil the Great

“Poor Jews! You invoked a dreadful curse upon your own heads in saying: “His blood be on us and our children”; and that curse, miserable race, you carry upon you to this day, and to the End of Time you shall endure the chastisement of that innocent blood. O my Jesus! … I will not be obstinate like the Jews. I will love Thee forever, forever, forever!”
— St. Alphonsus Maria Liguori

“We order all our brother bishops absolutely to suppress the blasphemy of Jews in your dioceses, churches, and communities, so that they do not dare raise their necks, bent under eternal slavery, to revile the Redeemer.”
— Pope Gregory IX

“It is known that the Jewish people are polluted with wickedness, blasphemy, and the shedding of the blood of Jesus Christ so that their wickedness has no limit.”
— St. Felix of Toledo

Dear Dr. Lamb. Thank you for a crucial Catholic reality check on those who refuse the Blood of Christ.

God bless.

Christus vincit, Christus regnat, Christus imperat!

Peter, thank you for posting all those quotes. I had not heard many of them, they are brilliant. Kind of sad that even in traditional parishes I've never heard the truth spoken so clearly.

Mr Lamb, thank you for those great quotes, but, without sources, they are unusable in serious discussion.

The fact that a Pope turned to qibla (direction of Kabaa in Mecca) and prayed inside a mosque is beyond disturbing. The man Bergoglio is either a heretic or an apostate. He crossed so many red lines, you'd have to be blind to not notice something is very wrong with Bergoglio and his circle.

Dear Rab, To my acedemic shame, I've had to make this apology before. I collected very many quotes during the period of my conversion from NWO to sedevacantism. I was reading very widely and collected them for my own benefit. I had no idea, at the time, that I would one day be publishing them - hence the lax acedemics. Sorry! :)

The Jews complain about "Anti-Jewish Elements" in the Catholic Liturgy.

For interest, see how jews regard Christians:

Invincible Ignorance is not a Sacrament. There is still Vincible Ignorance with the Majority of the World which gets enough Grace to come in the Catholic Church but yet refuses by their will to remain in an Ignorant State.

Jaybee said...

Salvation is from the Jews. The mother of God is a Jewish virgin. The parents of the Savior are direct descendants of the House of David. The disciples of Christ called him Rabbi.

God's chosen people are less than 1% of humanity. To continue history's persecution of them is the choice of men whose hearts are too cold to feel the love of Christ. His risen Body is a Jewish body, conceived in the Jewish body of the Queen of Heaven.

To revile the Jewish people is to reject God. This error has by grace been clarified by saints and popes.

This will be my last post, and my last visit, to this blog.


Vox Cantoris said...

Good grief JayBee,

Of course modern, rabbinical, talmudic Judaism hates Our Lord. Modern Judaism is a dead religion. Read what the Talmud says about Jesus!

I don't hate the Jewish people, I am not even anti-Israel and I am Lebanese ancestry with a brother-in-law, a Palestinian Melkite born before Israel.

I am as far from anti-Semitic as one can be. But the Judaism of today is not the Judaism of Our Lord.

Trusting you'll be back.
