No Blessing For You!

Gosh, just when I thought I could just post some nice Advent music, Bergoglio goes and does it again!



The first time was the day after his election when he refused to bless the assembled media Now, it is twice in two days.

When Catholics visit the Pope, they have a right to his Apostolic Blessing.

When non-Catholics visit, they don't demand that he does not bless and in fact, should be insulted that he denied them the grace which could lead to conversion.

Gosh, can't we go just one day without this monster doing something wretchedly evil and un-Catholic?

On the other hand, maybe he does not give the Apostolic Blessing because he's not the ...!

When those who should know better spread the lie of genderism, this is what they don't discuss!

Those in leadership in all walks of life in government, academia, business and even the Church tell you that gender is fluid and that a boy born a boy can really be a girl or whatever, this is what they leave out.

They are evil. 

What parent permitted this?

What authority figure affirmed it?

What doctor performed it?

There was a time when we took mental illness seriously. Now, we simply affirm delusion and if you don't agree with it, you're a hater. There was a time when we would have taken the doctor that butchered this poor girl and removed his license and then put him on trial and the parent would have been arrested for child endangerment and the child taken into protection by the State. Now the State endorses it and demands you accept it as right and just.

Yes, this IS a girl. This poor girl needed help. She needed love, she needed therapy, psychological and spiritual. She deserved care and protection to work through whatever delusions she had that caused her to think herself as a boy. Instead, she was used by an anti-Christ fascist mob for their political ends and will endure suffering the rest of her life that she cannot yet comprehend.

Lest you think this is not occurring on a large scale, dozens are raising money for what they now call, "top surgery."

Walt Heyer found out the truth.

http://waltheyer.com/

Thanks to a reader for this. Notice, the first person interviewed, "Billy," was "fondled" as a confused boy. Perpetrating perverts can sense who is the weak one, who is the target, then the go after their prey. They take a confused child and groom him or her to be one like them. Note that the second one, "Rene" had an absent and alcoholic father. Walt Heyer is also interviewed, he had a crazy grandmother who cross-dressed him and later was sexually abused. Is there a theme here?

And this is what our leaders in government, academia, industry, church and state think is good and fair and just.

God will deal with them friend. In every way.

Bishop Rick Stika does it again!

Vox Cantoris: No parents, you should not let your boys sit ...

Bishop Rick Stika of Knoxville has done it again. He has again proved that he is unfit for the Office of Bishop and was probably never fit for the priesthood in the first place. The man has a serious problem. Clearly, given the amount of time he spends on Twitter, he has a poor prayer life, probably does not say his Office and verifies that Knoxville clearly doesn't need a bishop!

He has blocked me on Twitter. Heck, he's probably blocked you. What this episcopal fraud doesn't realise, the same for Ivereigh and others, is that you can't really stop anyone from reading your Tweets unless you go private. All one needs to do is open a different web browser where one is not logged in and - voila!

Or, you can just wait 'til someone shares his latest idiocy. Such as this.


Image



And if that is not enough, there is this heresy.

Image


With Rick and his ilk, it's always those nasty TLM people that consistently get it wrong, eh? 

Is Rick dividing Jesus? Did Our Lord Jesus Christ not say, "The Father and I are one?" If this is what Rick believes, this is heresy.  

Let us look at paragraph 20 of the Encyclical Mediator Dei by Pope Piux XII.
20. This result is, in fact, achieved when Christ lives and thrives, as it were, in the hearts of men, and when men's hearts in turn are fashioned and expanded as though by Christ. This makes it possible for the sacred temple, where the Divine Majesty receives the acceptable worship which His law prescribes, to increase and prosper day by day in this land of exile of earth. Along with the Church, therefore, her Divine Founder is present at every liturgical function: Christ is present at the august sacrifice of the altar both in the person of His minister and above all under the eucharistic species. He is present in the sacraments, infusing into them the power which makes them ready instruments of sanctification. He is present, finally, in prayer of praise and petition we direct to God, as it is written: "Where there are two or three gathered together in My Name, there am I in the midst of them."[22] The sacred liturgy is, consequently, the public worship which our Redeemer as Head of the Church renders to the Father, as well as the worship which the community of the faithful renders to its Founder, and through Him to the heavenly Father. It is, in short, the worship rendered by the Mystical Body of Christ in the entirety of its Head and members.
How about a look at the 1983 Catechism of the Catholic Church?
1325 "The Eucharist is the efficacious sign and sublime cause of that communion in the divine life and that unity of the People of God by which the Church is kept in being. It is the culmination both of God's action sanctifying the world in Christ and of the worship men offer to Christ and through him to the Father in the Holy Spirit." 
We have this from the ancient Roman Missal which follows the Pater Noster and Libera nos:
He uncovers the chalice, genuflects, takes the Host and breaking it down the middle over the chalice says: 
Per eúndem Dóminum nostrum Jesum Christum Fílium tuum, Through the same Jesus Christ, Thy Son our Lord,
He breaks off a Particle from the Host. Qui tecum vivit et regnat in unitáte Spíritus Sancti Deus, Who is God living and reigning with Thee in the unity of the Holy Ghost,
And then, of course, the Nicene Creed:
"And in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Life-giver, who proceeds from the Father, who with the Father and Son is worshipped and glorified."
I could go on, but I've made my point.

Add yours in the combox.

Bishop Rick, Happy Thanksgiving and get off of Twitter.

Bergoglio favours financial investment - turns out he's a capitalist!


Behind all this pain, death and destruction there is the stench of what Basil of Caesarea called ‘the dung of the devil’. An unfettered pursuit of money rules Quote
Pope Francis Money Quote



The web page for "Peter's Pence has this statement:
"The concrete participation, including economic, in the needs of the universal ecclesial community has taken different forms throughout history. These collections and donations by the individual faithful or entire local churches raise the awareness that all the baptized are called to materially sustain the work of evangelization and at the same time to help the poor in whatever way is possible."

The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops states the following: 
“Today, the Peter's Pence Collection supports the Pope's philanthropy by giving the Holy Father the means to provide emergency assistance to those in need because of natural disaster, war, oppression, and disease.”
Francis Bergoglio was asked about the financial corruption of the pennies of faithful Catholics around the world. It is hard to know if he's more corrupt or stupid. 

Or thinks we are.

That scent you smell emanating from Francis is not frankincense.


Cristiana Caricato (TV2000, Italy): Holy Father, people read in the newspapers that the Holy See has acquired an apartment for hundreds of thousands of euros in the heart of London, and they become a bit disconcerted, because of this use of Vatican finances. Also, in particular, because it involves Peter’s Pence. Did you know of these financial things? And above all, in your opinion, is it correct to use  Peter’s Pence in that way? You have often said that money should not be made with money. You have often denounced the unscrupulous use of finances. However, we see that this operation involves the Holy See. This scandalizes in some way. How do you see this whole event?

Pope Francis: Thank you. First of all, in good administration it is normal for a sum to come from the Peter’s Pence, and what do I do? Put in a drawer? No, this is bad administration. But I look to make an investment, and when there is the need, to give... when there is the necessity, in one year, you take it. Your capital you do not devalue, if it maintains or if it grows a little. This is good administration.

If [it is] an administration of the drawer, it is bad. But you should try to make a good administration, a good investment. Is that clear?

Also an investment, as we say, an investment by widows? What do widows do? [Ed.note: An Italian saying] Two or three here, five here, if one falls, one of the others so that they are not ruined is always on security, this is always moral.

If from Peter’s Pence you invest in a weapons factory, the pence is not a pence there, eh?

If you make an investment and for years, without touching it, the capital does not go, Peter’s Pence should be spent in one year, one year and a half, until the other collection arrives which is made world-wide. And this is good management.

On security, and also, yes, you can buy a property, rent it, and then sell it. But, on security, with all of the securities, for the good of the people of the Pence. This, one. Then, what passed passed: A scandal. They have done things that do not seem ‘clean.’

But, the report did not come from the outside. That reform of the economic methodology, that Benedict XVI had already started, is going forward. And it was the auditor of the internal accounts to say: ‘Here there is a bad thing. Here there is something that is not working.’ And he came to me. And I said, but are you sure? ‘Yes.’ And he let me see the numbers. ‘What should I do?’ [he asked]. [I said:] There is the Vatican justice. Go and give the report to the Promoter of Justice. And in this I remained content, because you see that the Vatican administration now has the resources to clarify the bad things which happen inside, like in this case, that -- if it is not the case of the apartment in London, because this is not yet clear -- but in that [other instance] there were cases of corruption.

And the Promoter of Justice studied the accusations, consulted, and saw an imbalance in the budget. And then, he asked me for permission to make the searches. I said: ‘Is it clear, your report?’ He told me, ‘yes, there is a presumption of corruption in these cases. I should carry out searches in this office, this office, and this office.’ And I signed the authorization.

The searches were done in five offices. And up to today, but we have the presumption of innocence, but there is capital that is not administered well, also with corruption.

I believe that in less than two months they will begin questioning the five people that are blocked [suspended from the Vatican], because there were indications of corruption. You will ask me: ‘And these five are corrupt?’ No, the presumption of innocence is a guarantee, a human right. But, there is corruption, and you will see. With the searches you will see if they are guilty or not.

It’s a bad thing, it’s not good what is happening in the Vatican. But it is clear that the internal mechanisms are beginning to work, those that Benedict XVI had already started to make. And I thank God. I do not thank God that there is corruption, but I thank God that the Vatican monitoring system is working well.

Bruni: The next question is from Phil Pullella of Reuters.

Pope Francis: [small talk]

Philip Pullella (Reuters): [small talk] If you permit me, I would like to follow a little on the question Cristiana asked, if you permit me, with a few more details.

There is a lot of worry in the last few weeks about what happened and about the finances of the Vatican. And according to some people, there is an internal war over who should control the money, according to some people. The major part of the members of the council of the administration of AIF are dismissed. The Egmont Group, a group of these financial authorities have suspended of the Vatican, the secure communication [...] The director of AIF is still suspended, as you said, and still there is no general revisore.  

What can you do or say to guarantee to the international financial community, and to the faithful in general, who are called to contribute to Peter’s Pence, that the Vatican will not return to be considered a pariah a thing [inaudible] that is, to have trust you will continue and not return to the habits of the past?

Pope Francis: Thank you for the question. The Vatican has made steps forward in its administration, for example, the IOR today has the acceptance of all the banks and can act like the Italian banks, normal. Something which was not there a year ago. There is progress.

Then, the Egmont Group, that is not an official international group, a group to which the AIF belongs. And the international control does not depend on the Egmont Group, a private group that has its weight. It is a private group. And MONEYVAL will carry out the inspection it has scheduled for the first months of the next year and it will do it, it will do it.

The director of the AIF is in suspension because there were suspicions of bad administration. The president of AIF was strong with the Egmont Group to take back the documentation. And this the justice cannot do.

In front of this, I consulted with an Italian judge of a high level. 'What should I do?' Justice in front of an accusation of corruption is sovereign in a country. It's sovereign. And no one can involve themselves there inside. No one can say to the Egmont Group, “your papers are here.” No, the papers should be studied, that they add up (FARE) to what seems a bad administration, in the sense of a bad control.
   
It was AIF that did not control, it seems, the crimes of others. And therefore [it failed] in its duty of controls. I hope that they prove it is not so. Because there is, still, the presumption of innocence.

And for the moment, the magistrates, the magistrate is sovereign. He should study how it went. Because on the contrary,, a country should have a superior administration that would harm the sovereignty of the country.

And the [term of the] president of AIF was expiring [November] 19th. I would call him a few days before and he was not in agreement that I was re-calling him [as president of AIF] and announced that the 19th he was leaving. I found a successor, a judge of the highest juridical and economic level, national and international, and at my return, he takes charge of AIF and things will continue like so.

It would have been a contradiction that the monitoring authority to be sovereign over the state. It is something which is not easy to understand, but what is a little disturbed is the Egmont Group, which is a private group. It helps a lot, but it is not the monitoring authority of MONEYVAL. MONEYVAL will study the numbers. It will study the procedures. It will study how [...] the Promoter of Justice. And how the judges have determined the things.

I know that in these days the interrogation of the five who were suspended will begin or has already begun. It is not easy, but we should not be naive. We should not be slaves.

Someone told me -- but I do not believe it -- but they said, 'yes, with this, we have touched the Egmont Group. You scare the people . We are creating a little terrorism…’ Let’s leave that aside. We go forward with the law, with MONEYVAL, with the new president of AIF, and the director was suspended but maybe he is innocent. I would like that, because it is a beautiful thing [if] one is innocent and not guilty. I felt a little bit of noise with this group that was not wanting that the papers be touched that belong to the group.

Pullella: And a guarantee for the faithful that…?

Pope Francis: To guarantee this? Look, it’s the first time that in the Vatican the pot is discovered from the inside, not from the outside, From the outside many times. And they said look there and we had so much embarrassment... But in this Pope Benedict was wise. And he began a process that matured and now the institutions that the auditor had the courage to make a written report against five people… The auditor is working. Really, I do not want to offend the Egmont Group, because they did so much good, help, but in this case the state has sovereignty. And even justice is more sovereign then the executive power, more sovereign. It is not easy to understand but I ask you all to understand this difficulty.

Bergoglio says that he is "incompetent" and goes right ahead and proves it!

Image
"Oh no, what is he going to say this time?"
"The use of nuclear weapons is immoral; this must go in the Catechism of the Catholic Church. And not only the use, but also the possession because if there is an accident or a crazed government -- one's madness can destroy humanity."
Okay... so what about China or Russia with these weapons pointed at North America. Are we allowed to have any as a deterrent or to hit back if they hit us first?

What an idiot.

Well, at least, when asked about the Bolivian Butcher he responded that he could not comment because he was "incompetent."

The Pervert Protecting Pontiff

LA CAGE AUX FOLLES

Fifty years of Novus Ordo garbage

Two week ago, I attended my first Novus Ordo Mass in over two years. A friend was being ordained to the transitional diaconate. I could have done without the serviettes in the sanctuary and the Cardinal's jokes, but other than that, it was tolerable.

When I think back to my childhood and my memories of Mass, I can recall in my mind's eye, six candles lit on the altar at the principal Mass which we always attended (there were maybe five in total) and maybe the Kyrie and Sanctus were sung, but that was it. It was a essentially a Read, or Low Mass with some music sprinkled here and there. Everyone knelt all the time and some had hand missals, my parents certainly did. One Sunday, there was a plywood table covered in one cloth and two stubby candles in the sanctuary and poor Father Michael Carroll, a good and saintly man, looked totally flummoxed. I can remember my mother saying, "Well, this is Vatican II." She didn't like it. That was 1965 and I was nine years old. Two years later, at the first class for the new crop of Altar Boys, we were told, "Congratulations Boys, you're the first class that does not need to learn Latin!"

southern orders : WAS THIS MASS BY BLESSED POPE PAUL VI ...

This was the interim 1965 Missal which was the already slimmed down 1962 but in the vernacular up to the Offertory from then on, it was still Latin. The Prayers at the Foot of the Altar were shortened as in the Requiem, without the Judica Me and could be eliminated if one did the Asperges. The Epistle could be read by a layman (man!), there were fewer genuflections and crosses by the priest, the priest now said, "The Body of Christ" and we responded, "Amen" and the Last Gospel was gone. From there it was downhill. By 1967, Latin was gone, the music was atrocious and every week there was something new. We were told this was the New Mass. We did not know we were yet to get a New, New Mass.

By the time November 30, 1969 came, nobody really noticed. There were so many innovations from 1967 on that it was brought in my stealth. The only difference were the readings and some new "Eucharistic Prayers." The chaos blinded us all.

Nobody asked for this - the laity did not demand it.

If there was a problem, it was the ever-present Sunday and Feast Day Read or Low Mass, but that is for a different post and maybe a series.


The Novus Ordo liturgy of Montini has been a disaster for the faith. There is not one thing good which can be said about it but if you can try, please do, in the combox. 

Please dear reader, abandon it, if you can. Find the traditional Mass, diocesan, FSSP. ICRSS, SSPX, drive as far as you must.

And read this and note the quotes from the alleged Saint, Montini, and tell me you don't here Bergoglio!

"Sometimes the combox is better than the blogger."

In my morning perusal of my favourite blogs (all are on the left column), I read this on Non Veni Pacem. It struck me because the of what my fellow blogger, Mark, wrote:

"Sometimes the combox is better than the blogger."

As a blogger, I could not agree more. It is one reason why the combox is open and free and while moderated, generally uncensored with 99.9% of comments being published. 

There was a reason why on March 13, 2013 I wanted to vomit. It was because I was looking into the face of evil. Not a shepherd, not a vicar, not a pastor, but the face of a man who gave himself over to Satan. I knew it, deep in my bones.

People are awakening. Others think as I; and furthermore, I consider that Ann Barnhardt has been on to all of this for quite a while. 

Read this and please, read every comment.

“The throne of Peter has a demonic spawn squatting on it, orchestrating Hell’s circus”

https://nonvenipacem.com/2019/11/22/the-throne-of-peter-has-a-demonic-spawn-squatting-on-it-orchestrating-hells-circus/


Letter of Saint Athanasius to His Flock (4th Century A.D.)

“May God console you! … What saddens you … is the fact that others have occupied the churches by violence, while during this time you are on the outside. It is a fact that they have the premises — but you have the Apostolic Faith. They can occupy our churches, but they are outside the true Faith. You remain outside the places of worship, but the Faith dwells within you. Let us consider: what is more important, the place or the Faith? The true Faith, obviously. Who has lost and who has won in the struggle — the one who keeps the premises or the one who keeps the Faith?
True, the premises are good when the Apostolic Faith is preached there; they are holy if everything takes place there in a holy way …

Athanasius of Alexandria - The Patristics Project
You are the ones who are happy; you who remain within the Church by your Faith, who hold firmly to the foundations of the Faith which has come down to you from Apostolic Tradition. And if an execrable jealousy has tried to shake it on a number of occasions, it has not succeeded. They are the ones who have broken away from it in the present crisis.

No one, ever, will prevail against your Faith, beloved Brothers. And we believe that God will give us our churches back some day.

Thus, the more violently they try to occupy the places of worship, the more they separate themselves from the Church. They claim that they represent the Church; but in reality, they are the ones who are expelling themselves from it and going astray.

Even if Catholics faithful to Tradition are reduced to a handful, they are the ones who are the true Church of Jesus Christ.”

CHURCH in CRISIS: World's Catholics Resist Pope to His Face

Bishop Athanasius Schneider: Pachamama was worshiped at Vatican and it wasn’t harmless

Bishop Athanasius Schneider has written an article for Kath.net and has authorised an approved English translation at LifeSiteNews

His Excellency lays out the idolatry and blasphemy committed by Bergoglio and the others over the worship of pagan deities in Rome. It reads as a lawyer's opening statement in a devastating trial. He has convicted Jorge Mario Bergoglio and others of being the false prophets that they are and even worse. They are devils. 

"For all of the gods of the gentiles are devils; and the LORD made the heavens."

"Blessed be the name of the LORD."

BERGOLIO DECLARES FAITHFUL CATHOLICS TO BE "NAZIS" - INVENTS NEW "SIN"


In a stunning statement, Jorge Bergoglio has labelled faithful Catholics who speak out against sodomitical behaviour and the political agenda of homosexualism as "NAZIS"
“It is no coincidence that in these times, emblems and actions typical of Nazism reappear, which, with its persecutions against Jews, gypsies and people of homosexual orientation, represents the negative model par excellence of a culture of waste and hatred, and I must confess to you that when I hear a speech [by] someone responsible for order or for a government, I think of speeches by Hitler in 1934, 1936. In the last century we saw so many brutalities against the Jewish people, and we were all convinced that this was over. But today the habit of persecuting the Jews, brothers and sisters, is here reborn. This is neither human nor Christian."
More can be read here.

Who is this pontificating pervert protector speaking of? Is it this writer? Is it you, dear reader? 

The man is a sociopath, he never names his target but only makes innuendo. This is of Christ? This is a pastor?

He continued on to declare the "sin" against the environment in keeping with his recent pagan worship of "mother-earth"

If that is not enough, he reiterated his rejection of a life sentence in prison which he has done numerous times before.

This man is not of Christ. He is evil. That is plain to see. He hates Our Lord Jesus Christ, he refused to genuflect or kneel before the Most Blessed Sacrament of the Altar but he sanctioned and attended the literal worship of a pagan idol.

It is without a doubt in the mind of this writer that Jorge Bergoglio is most perfectly possessed. He is a megalomaniac. A nasty, brutish, pompous dictator.

He is playing us, he is psychologically projecting.

It is Bergoglio that is the NAZI.

It is Bergoglio that is the coprophiliac.

And nobody confronts this evil monster to his face.

Protest against Pope Francis's sacrilegious acts

I add my name.




We the undersigned Catholic clergy and lay scholars protest against and condemn the sacrilegious and superstitious acts committed by Pope Francis, the Successor of Peter, in connection with the recent Amazon Synod held in Rome.
These sacrilegious acts are the following:

On October 4, Pope Francis attended an act of idolatrous worship of the pagan goddess Pachamama.
He allowed this worship to take place in the Vatican Gardens, thus desecrating the vicinity of the graves of the martyrs and of the church of the Apostle Peter.
He participated in this act of idolatrous worship by blessing a wooden image of Pachamama.
On October 7, the idol of Pachamama was placed in front of the main altar at St. Peter’s and then carried in procession to the Synod Hall. Pope Francis said prayers in a ceremony involving this image and then joined in this procession.

When wooden images of this pagan deity were removed from the church of Santa Maria in Traspontina, where they had been sacrilegiously placed, and thrown into the Tiber by Catholics outraged by this profanation of the church, Pope Francis, on October 25, apologized for their removal and another wooden image of Pachamama was returned to the church.  Thus, a new profanation was initiated.

On October 27, in the closing Mass for the synod, he accepted a bowl used in the idolatrous worship of Pachamama and placed it on the altar.
Pope Francis himself confirmed that these wooden images were pagan idols. In his apology for the removal of these idols from a Catholic church, he specifically called them Pachamama,  a name for a false goddess of mother earth according to pagan religious belief in South America.

Different features of these proceedings have been condemned as idolatrous or sacrilegious by Cardinal Walter Brandmüller, Cardinal Gerhard Müller, Cardinal Jorge Urosa Savino, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, Bishop Athanasius Schneider, Bishop José Luis Azcona Hermoso, Bishop Rudolf Voderholzer, and Bishop Marian Eleganti.  Lastly, Card. Raymond Burke has given the same assessment of this cult in an interview.

This participation in idolatry was anticipated by the statement entitled “Document on Human Fraternity”, signed by Pope Francis and Ahmad Al-Tayyeb, the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar Mosque, on February 4, 2019.  This statement asserted that:

“The pluralism and the diversity of religions, colour, sex, race and language are willed by God in His wisdom, through which He created human beings. This divine wisdom is the source from which the right to freedom of belief and the freedom to be different derives.”
Pope Francis’s involvement in idolatrous ceremonies is an indication that he meant this statement in a heterodox sense, which allows pagan worship of idols to be considered a good positively willed by God.

Moreover, despite privately advising Bishop Athanasius Schneider that “You [the Bishop] can say that the phrase in question on the diversity of religions means the permissive will of God…” , Francis has never corrected the Abu Dhabi statement accordingly.  In his subsequent audience address of April 3, 2019 Francis, answering the question “Why does God permit that there are so many religions?”, referred in passing to the “permissive will of God” as explained by Scholastic theology, but gave the concept a positive meaning, declaring that “God wanted to permit this” because while “there are so many religions” they “always look to heaven, they look to God (emphasis added).”  There is not the slightest suggestion that God permits the existence of false religions in the same way He permits the existence of evil generally.  Rather, the clear implication is that God permits the existence of “so many religions” because they are good in that they “always look to heaven, they look to God.”

Worse, Pope Francis has since confirmed the uncorrected Abu Dhabi statement by establishing an “interfaith committee”,  which later received the official name of “Higher Committee,”  located in the United Arab Emirates, to promote the “goals” of the document; and promoting a directive issued by the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue addressed to the heads of all the Roman Catholic institutes of higher studies, and indirectly to Catholic university professors, asking that they give the “widest possible dissemination to the document", including its uncorrected assertion that God wills the “diversity of religions” just as He wills the diversity of color, sex, race and language.

The rendering of worship to anyone or anything other than the one true God, the Blessed Trinity, is a violation of the First Commandment. Absolutely all participation in any form of the veneration of idols is condemned by this Commandment and is an objectively grave sin, independently of the subjective culpability, that only God can judge.

St. Paul taught the early Church that the sacrifice offered to pagan idols was not offered to God but rather to the demons when he said in his First Letter to the Corinthians:

“What then? Do I say, that what is offered in sacrifice to idols, is any thing? Or, that the idol is any thing? But the things which the heathens sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons, and not to God. And I would not that you should be made partakers with demons. You cannot drink the chalice of the Lord, and the chalice of demons: you cannot be partakers of the table of the Lord, and of the table of demons.”
(1 Cor. 10:19-21)

By these actions Pope Francis has incurred the reproach uttered by the Second Council of Nicaea:

“Many pastors have destroyed my vine, they have defiled my portion. For they followed unholy men and trusting to their own frenzies they calumniated the holy Church, which Christ our God has espoused to himself, and they failed to distinguish the holy from the profane, asserting that the icons of our Lord and of his saints were no different from the wooden images of satanic idols.”

With immense sorrow and deep love for the Chair of Peter, we beg Almighty God to spare the guilty members of His Church on earth the punishment that they deserve for these terrible sins.

We respectfully ask Pope Francis to repent publicly and unambiguously of these objectively grave sins and of all the public offences that he has committed against God and the true religion, and to make reparation for these offences.

We respectfully ask all the bishops of the Catholic Church to offer fraternal correction to Pope Francis for these scandals, and to warn their flocks that according to the divinely revealed teaching of the Catholic faith, they will risk eternal damnation if they follow his example of offending against the First Commandment.

Nuncio to the U.S.A. demands obedience to the Francis Magisterium

Christophe Pierre, the Apostolic Nuncio to the United States has spoken at the USCCB Central Committee demanding that all bow down and adore at the name of Francis and his magisterium.

So now, we have the "Francis Magisterium."

Pierre can follow Bergoglio straight into Hell.

Where they both belong.

The Novus Ordo Mass becomes a cult of toxic Marxism - Zita Tradlinger Fletcher reports

Zika Tradlinger Fletcher has reported extensively on Germany's heretical Catholic Church for Catholic Fake News Service. She is a regular reader of Vox Cantoris blog and we have received this report from her while on special assignment.

The Novus Ordo Mass becomes a cult of toxic Marxism

The Novus Ordo Mass becomes a cult of toxic Marxism

One culture within the Catholic Church needing major reform is that surrounding the practice of the New Mass, a.k.a. Novus Ordo Mass.

In this new era, the New Mass is merely a disjointed and substandard way of celebrating the liturgy in the United States. In the wake of the not needed reforms instituted by the Second Vatican Council, the New Mass has become a rallying point for change-obsessed radical sects within the church. The ultra-liberalism practiced by these Novus Ordo Mass groups is radical and empty-headed. They utilize the Novus Ordo Mass structure to wield control over believers — particularly men, who are reduced to a state of discriminatory subjugation in Novus Ordo rites. The stubbornly resistant, anti-Traditional practices of these Novus Ordo Mass adherents border on cultism.

The Novus Ordo Mass fosters heretical structures in the church. The liturgy — spoken in a vernacular, colloquial language no longer the traditional, sacred language usage — places all power in the hands of the people and Susan from the Parish Council. The priest keeps his back turned to the Tabernacle, where the Most Blessed Sacrament is reserved, for most of the ceremony. Aside from making occasional responses, the priest  plays no active part in worship. All people inside the church are not expected to kneel on cue at various points. The priest is at the center of the spectacle. His ministry is not longer differentiated from the people he is supposed to worship with, and the altar rail is the structure that marks the sacred space and reserved for his ministry, and where to receive the Body of Christ Novus Ordo people refuse to kneel at His feet.

Meanwhile, the new modernist innovations oppress men. Men are expected — indeed, in some cases almost commanded — to wear T-shirts, cargo pants, and flip flops, instead of collar shirts, trousers and shoes, and women uncover themselves with revealing clothing, mini skirts and tight yoga pants. No such rules exist for the seniors. It is discrimination, and therefore the New Mass actively endorses agism and attacks decorum. Instead of a unifying form of worship, the New Mass has become an instrument of oppression and a gathering point for Catholic fundamentalists.

In most cases, it is useless to politely disagree with people in the Novus Ordo Mass sect. Their attitude creates blindness — not only to true faith, but to their own behavior. They treat others with pride and animosity, but their conscience fails to kick in because they are convinced their way is holy and other ways are not.

Anyone who may accuse me of not knowing what I'm talking about — a favorite indictment of the Novus Ordo Mass ideologues — would be wrong. My opinion is based on facts and personal experiences.

I grew up in a household of steady and solid faith, which grew stronger over time. My parents stayed married until death. My mother was Catholic who had been to church all her life. In the branches of my family tree were relatives who might best be described as Catholics, and others as Christian. My mother decided to be faithful to the Catholic Church when she was young. From an early age, I believed in Christ because I was Catholic — others tried in vain to convert me to atheism and modernism while I was still in elementary school.

Maybe this sounds like the beginning of a happy story of faith and discovery. It was. My family's journey into the Catholic Church was a long, steady and pleasant road marked by a series of a wonderful treatment by Catholic clergy, religious, schools and parishioners. (It's a miracle that I'm Catholic and became a Catholic journalist.)

The Novus Ordo Mass rears its unveiled head in the unholy, modernist rebellious history at several points. The last Latin Mass my mother remembered attending took place just after the Second Vatican Council, so unwillingly she started going to New Masses when she stayed in the church because they were imposed. The church was going to welcome us Traditional Catholics, she thought. The treatment we got was slightly shy of the Communist gulags.
Needless to say, anything in the church looking remotely Traditional was completely veiled. The people had the humor of a second-rate comedy club crowd and the pastor, arrayed in modern vestments, was more like a prima dona. After over an hour spent every Sunday drowning in pablum, I was incensed, and getting sneered at, we did not feel any closer to God.

Rules, also, were a strange issue. For example, the chapel veil was forbidden to be worn in the church. A confessor there hit one of my family members with a "permanent daily practice"— a positive thought every day, forever, to atone for an alleged life of iniquity. After some while of this torture, my mother spoke with a different priest about the unbearable situation. He advised her that genuine Catholic faith did forbid wearing immodest clothes or allow priests to inflict a "penance" for sins. Immediately we stopped going to Novus Ordo Mass at that parish.

But it wasn't the last time I would run into New Masses — or the Novus Ordo Mass sectarians, present today in many Catholic organizations.

After staying in the church as a teenager, I chose to be a more faithful Catholic by learning and practicing the true Faith and devotions — following the perennial Magisterium of the Church and Tradition, and attending the very few churches where the Latin Mass was celebrated. On one instance, a Novus Ordo priest noticed I was showing up regularly and approached me with a persuasive speech to convert me to the Novus Ordo Mass faction — disguising discrimination as encouragement. "You should come to the Paul VI Mass instead and not wear a veil. Women look the most beautiful in church when they are not veiled," he tried to persuade. "The long hair types are the best kind — the really long ones, past the shoulders. I recommend it to you — you have such pretty red hair, but it would even look nicer if you didn’t wear a veil over it. I think it would be best for you."

Most disturbing about this conversation was his effort to make impiety sound positive. Of course it made no sense that my hair would somehow look better if people could see it. Indignant, I asked him to explain why he thought I should consider not covering my head. “Because it's disrespectful," he replied solemnly.

When asked why it wasn’t respectful to veil the hair that God had glorified in women — and why men in church did have to uncover their heads — he was not able to answer. He reacted badly because I challenged his authority. Anyway, I had no intention of listening. I knew I was called to keep my belief in God in a Traditional church. I never returned to that modernist church afterwards. 

The priest's attitude towards veiling women is typical of Novus Ordo Mass cultists. They seem to believe that women look better in church when people can see them. They try to sell immodesty to girls as a symbol of feminine freedom. They hold that not covering up and not hiding yourself is beautiful although such a practice is the very opposite of natural beauty.

Ultimately, it doesn't matter how pretty, sexy or raunchy clothes may seem to potential wearers — cloths are meant to conceal female beauty and prevent people from ogling women. By not promoting the chapel veil, Novus Ordo Mass fundamentalists rob women of freedom, while trying to make it seem like a liberating choice. Their attitude is not much different from extremists under Communism.

Given such practices, it should come as no surprise that a contingent of women active within the sectarian Novus Ordo Mass environment have sexist and misandrist worldviews. These types believe they are superior to men simply because they are female.

I cite two examples to support my view. One occasion that remains burned into my memory was when I attended a Novus Ordo Mass at a Catholic university. It was a busy Sunday and the Sunday obligation demanded I attend Mass. I did not know it was a Novus Ordo Mass until I stumbled over the doorstep. The atmosphere was typically liberal. I was surprised to recognize some people there. One of them was a professor who was known to be a namby-pamby person. When I saw his wife, I was shocked — and suddenly realized the ugly extent of his weaknesses. His wife was a mere ghost of a woman. She was almost naked from head to toe. Her dress was so short that you could see her underwear. Even her entire legs and her arms were “weapons of mass distraction.” She kept her head high and always walked in front of everybody. She carried a cell phone and looked physically slinky — almost sexy.
The professor, by contrast, looked deprecated and unhealthy. He ambled around and didn’t chat with others in church as she strutted around and in front of him like a peacock. Seeing this, I believed I had witnessed a very dark side to the professor's wife spirituality. Her religion was a mechanism of abusive control.

My second example concerns a younger Catholic age group — many of whom are apparently falling victim to the ultra-liberal Latin Mass ideology promoted in Catholic activity groups and on college campuses. A female acquaintance of mine, about my age, decided to brave the Catholic dating scene — a recipe for disaster, in my personal opinion. Among the stories I heard from her were of liberal Catholic males shopping for dates, asking her and other girls, "Are you willing to get laid?" before marrying them. These men did not want to associate with women whom they couldn't sexually dominate.

Men she met in this liberal Catholic peer group would interview girls about sexuality before deciding to spend time with them — they were arrogant and believed they were somehow morally superior to the women. Instead of standing up for her own dignity, she decided to cave into the pressure — go to liberal services and start wearing shorts. I still don't understand why she wanted to associate with that group, or why she decided to give in to oppression.

It is very unfortunate that younger generations of Catholics seeking to deepen their faith are getting sucked into this vortex of toxic, liberal radicalism. I saw few young families at a Novus Ordo Mass recently when I was invited to attend a speaking engagement at a liberal church. I happened to arrive before the Protestantized Mass was quite over — having nowhere else to go before the event, and wishing to receive Holy Communion, I decided to kneel during the Mass. Unsurprisingly I found myself surrounded by almost naked women who entertained themselves in between chatting bouts by casting disapproving glances at my chapel veil and rosary.

Looking around, I was astonished to see few college-aged men and women among the crowd. The priests seemed to be in their 70s. Clearly these people were too old to celebrate the times before Vatican II. Yet something had drawn them here. Parental influence? Doubtful. It seemed to be a shared spirit of ultra-liberalism. I found it frightening to reflect on how the closed, Novus Ordo Mass mindset had managed to replicate itself over time and spread like a virus.
Unsurprisingly, while there I had another memorably bad experience. I went to receive Holy Communion kneeling and on the tongue. Most liberal-type priests I'd encountered in my lifetime would give me the Eucharist only in the hands. This pastor too. He literally made a scene at the altar and jerked the Eucharist away from me when I put out my tongue to receive it — as if my tongue would contaminate the very Jesus who, according to the Catholic faith, seeks Communion with my soul. I seriously considered walking out of the church at that point, but decided not to receive the Eucharist and make a Spiritual Communion instead, since I wanted to pray. After Mass I gave the priests a piece of my mind.

Liberal clericalism defined the response I received. When I informed an assisting priest that the pastor had been very rude to me at the altar and asked that my views be relayed, he replied: "I won't throw our pastor under the bus. He's the pastor. I refuse to tell him to correct his behavior," the priest said. I reminded him that, as a priest, he was supposed to worship God and value my feedback as a believer. The priest took a step back and looked at me in astonishment, as if the notion of worship to God had never occurred to him. "Very well. I'll tell the pastor what you said," he said condescendingly. "But I don't think he did anything wrong." His attitude was a trademark example of the culture within the Catholic Church that encourages abuse. His first reaction was to default to absolute loyalty to his pastor, then dismiss my views. When pressed further, he flat-out denied all wrongdoing. To liberal modernists, Traditionalists are always the problem — not those who belong to the herd, and certainly not modernist clergy.

With liberal rigidity, the modernist priest argued in defense of his liberal pastor against the traditions of the "Old Mass"—a derogatory term used by Novus Ordo cultists to denote regular Latin-language Masses. He said the Latin Masses I regularly attended were abandoned “over 40 years ago" — as if that devalued them somehow —and insisted they were only "allowed to exist, but not standardly recommended." He claimed the church only allowed Communion on the tongue “in extreme cases." Of course, I know this is not true. He capped his radical fundamentalist arguments by saying the Novus Ordo Mass is a solemn rite equal to Byzantine and Coptic rites and that rules cannot be changed for anyone. He accused me of being "rude" by not expecting them "to change their rites."

I feel it necessary to point out — lest readers be confused by his illogicality — that the Byzantine and Coptic rites originate in the traditions of distinct Catholic churches in foreign countries. The Latin Mass, by contrast, is merely the perennial model of tradition practiced in the United States and all countries since the early Church, and was never abrogated by the Church nor adopted in almost every single country. Therefore the Latin Mass can be compared to Coptic and Byzantine churches as Eternal Rome can be compared to the New Jerusalem. Saints, martyrs and our forefathers will be disenfranchised by changes made to the Latin Mass — just faithful Catholics unable to let go of the sacredness and beauty of the Traditional Latin Mass.

What I gained from this experience was a deeper recognition of how the Latin Mass foments a reverential, beautiful and rich culture within the Catholic Church that Pope Francis is actively working to change.

In his homily earlier last month, Pope Francis warned Catholics against hypocrisy. He described liberal hypocrisy as "appearing one way, but acting in another," and said that a hypocritical attitude "always kills." Jesus did not tolerate hypocrisy, according to Pope Francis, but enjoyed unmasking it. "A Christian who does not know how to accuse himself is not a good Christian," the pope said.

The intolerant atmosphere against the Latin Mass stands in clearly follows Pope Francis's description of what the new Church is being forced to be.

“The post II Vatican Council Church is a fortress, a tent incapable of expanding and offering access to people the richness, spiritual depth and beauty of the Traditional Latin Mass, the Mass of the Angels”, a Traditional Pope would have said. "The church is 'following Tradition’ or it is not the Catholic Church, either it is worshipping, always widening its Traditional room so that all may enter or else it is not the Catholic Church."

Tradition defines true Catholicism. Radical liberal modernists who cling to the guitars, felt banners and empty-headed, mindless hippie rituals of the outdated 60s practices would do well to follow the advice of St. Paul to the Galatians, Chapter 1: “But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach a gospel to you besides that which we have preached to you, let him be anathema.”
