"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”

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.”

(Coll. selecta SS. Eccl. Patrum, Caillau and Guillou, Vol. 32, pp. 411-412)

wow... inspirational for today as it was back in the day...this needs to be saved, shared and referred to repeatedly (like shampoo instructions).

One thing the faithful need to confront, is that though Canon Law gives us the right to bring our concerns to the Bishops (canon 212) it is pretty obvious that the Bishops do not give a damn (I except Bishop Gracida).

Since schism is the sin of separating yourself from any other part of the Church, what does that say about the bishops.

I do not speak of good or Catholic Bishops. But I also realize that the schism these Bishops are participating in does not come from the Catholic faith, but from the unholy ideologies they hold dearer to their heart than the faithful's money.

Vox, this is why I love you so much, You let us say our piece!! You do not get scandalized when people tell it like it is. Thank you for that. Also, you and I are on the same page regarding Bergoglio. He is not the Pope. He is trashing the Church and soon the Church will be underground, I ask your readers to read Ann Barhnardt's latest article. Face what Bergoglio really is. She expresses it so well. Thank you again for your openness to comments. Peace.

Barbara Jensen said...

The article from Ann B. starts with 'Toldya: Bergoglio's other Gustavo'. It is in the archives for November bye now.

Hasta el dia de hoy no me ha tocado ser testigo de un solo clerigo que, ante esta terrible crisis diga: "aqui estoy, crucifiquenme". "Estoy listo para dar mi vida por Jesucristo".
Nosotros, fieles laicos, debemos combatir a quienes actualmente ocupan el Vaticano, pero tambien debemos tener cuidado de no ser enganados por todos esos cardenales, obispos, arzobispos, sacerdotes que no estan dispuestos a dejar de ser "pro-vaticano segundo"...Sarah, Burque, Schneider, Vigano.
Mucho ojo con lo que estos jerarcas dicen y escriben.

Over at The Remnant, a blog I have admired for many years, Mr. Matt, has recently posted a long letter detailing the many heresies of Bergolio. The letter is to Bergolio begging him to change course. All posted comments are thanking and praising Mr Matt. Any attempt at criticism of this approach is banned. Mr Matt constantly refers to him as “Holy Father”. My point was what next: A letter to Satan asking him respectfully “knock it off”. Friends, this is a war. Bergolio and the overwhelming majority of Cardinals and Bishops are the enemy. The time for groveling letters and petitions is past. They simply give support to the great majority of Catholics who remain legarthic. Bergolio is neither a Father or Holy. Those who perpetuate this myth play into the hand of the enemy. I can honestly say I had the same reaction as Mr Vox when the man walked onto the logia on that sad day in 2013. Very disappointed in The Remnant.

BadCatholic I agree,

We need to hold meetings and Synods to condemn the rascals...

Peter Lamb said...

Aqua and Susan,

Very well said. Welcome! Sede vacante.

susan said...

Peter Lamb, no. The whole point of everything is that Benedict is still the pope.

I don't think Bergolio is the pope. Even if he was elected validly (and there are reasons to suspect he was not) he has removed himself from the office with pertinacious heresy. His breaking of the First Commandment in the Vatican garden sealed it. We are not to judge the pope but we must make judgments, God gave us instructions in scripture.
We will resist Bergolio and his Francis Church.

Garden Cat said...

Francis is Pope; Francis is not Pope. Benedict's resignation was valid; Benedict's resignation was not valid. People, what does it matter? At this point, it's irrelevant. Get past all that and realize that Francis calls himself Pope, and those around him call him Pope. No one calls Benedict Pope, and Benedict does not call himself Pope. Think of it this way - possession is 9/10ths of the law, and Francis possesses all that is afforded a Pope of the Catholic Church. And since there is no human way to oust him, give up the whole idea that he has precluded himself from the Chair of Peter by his actions. Again, what does it matter? The man isn't going anywhere. Let's focus our words and actions on that which is productive. Frankly, I'm sick of the whole "Will the real Pope please stand up" thing. It's a waste of time and energy, and it has become really wearisome.

BadCatholic: These people that insist that he is who he says he is are only concerned about the 'unity' of the Church. They are terrified of 'schism'. They're definitely conflicted, because they have to realize that we cannot follow Satan and his demons into hell. He is anything but 'Holy' and anything but a 'Father'.
