Not much of your time will be wasted on this Fifth Sunday after the Epiphany and the Commemoration of Saint Cyril of Alexandria and the Commemoration of Saint Apollonia, as there is little that remains to be said about Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s revolutionary plans for the completion of what Joseph “Cardinal” Ratzinger wrote in 1982 was “a long overdue task,” namely, the “razing” of the last bastions of true Catholicism.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio has spent nearly eleven months now outlining his agenda, albeit randomly, in what can be called his daily “re-education” program at the Casa Santa Marta on the grounds of the Occupied Vatican on the West Bank of the Tiber River and, of course, in his “apostolic exhortation,” Evangelii Gaudium, November 26, 2013 (see Jorge and Oscar’s False Gospel of False Joy, part one, Jorge and Oscar’s False Gospel of False Joy, part two, Jorge and Oscar’s False Gospel of False Joy, part three, Jorge and Oscar’s False Gospel of False Joy, part four, Jorge and Oscar’s False Gospel of False Joy, part five, Jorge and Oscar’s False Gospel of False Joy, part six and Jorge and Oscar’s False Gospel of False Joy, part seven).
It does not take any kind of special intelligence or prophetic insight to know that the counterfeit church of conciliarism, which is accepted by all but a handful of people in the world, Catholics and non-Catholics alike, is going the way of all flesh. That is, all false religions are born of the will of men, mere contingent beings who did not create themselves and whose bodies are destined for the corruption of the grave, and thus must spiral down the road to rank unbelief no matter their adherents’ protestations of having remained “faithful.”
Consider how rapidly Martin Luther’s revolution against the Divine Plan that God Himself instituted to effect man’s return to Him through His Catholic Church deteriorated into a moral sewer of degradation that he could never understand was the direct result of his own false theology:
The assumption that Protestantism brought a higher and purer moral life to the nations that came under its influence does not need elaborate refutation. It is a fact of uncontroverted history that “public morality did at once deteriorate to an appalling degree wherever Protestantism was introduced. Not to mention robberies of church goods, brutal treatment meted out to the clergy, secular and regular, who remained faithful, and the horrors of so many wars of religion,” we have the express testimony of [Martin] Luther himself and several other leaders of the revolt, such as [Martin] Bucer and [Philip] Melancthon, as to the evil effects of their teaching; and this testimony is confirmed by contemporaries. Luther’s own avowals on this matter are numberless. Thus he writes:
“There is not one of our Evangelicals, who is not seven times worse than before he belonged to us, stealing the goods of others, lying, deceiving, eating, getting drunk, and indulging in every vice, as if he had not received the Holy Word. If we have been delivered from one spirit of evil, seven others worse than the first have come to take its place.”
“Men who live under the Gospel are more uncharitable, more irascible, more greedy, more avaricious than they were before as Papists.”
Even Erasmus, who had at first favoured Luther’s movement, was soon disillusioned. Thus he writes:
“The New Gospel has at least the advantage of showing us a new race of men, haughty, impudent, cunning, blasphemous . . . quarrellers, seditious, furious, to whom I have, to say truth, so great an antipathy that if I knew a place in the world free of them, I would not hesitate to take refuge therein.”
That these evil effects of Protestantism were not merely temporary–the accidental results of the excitement and confusion which are peculiar to a stage of transition (although they were no doubt intensified thereby)–is shown from present-day statistics. The condition of domestic morality is usually best indicated by the statistics of divorce, and of illegitimate births, and by the proportion of legitimate children to the number of marriages; while statistics of general criminality, where they can be had, would convey a fair idea of the individual and public morality in any given place. According to these tests Protestant countries are at the present day much inferior to Catholic countries in domestic and public morality.
The following examples will help to illustrate this:
Italy, Spain and Ireland are perhaps the most Catholic countries of the world, while Britain, the United States of America, with Denmark and Scandinavia, are the most Protestant. Legalised divorce does not exist at all (1930-1931) in any country of the former group. It exists in all the countries of the latter group; and the number of divorces is increasing year by year. In England and Wales there were 3,740 divorces in 1928, being about one divorce to every 114 marriages. In the United States of America the number of divorces in 1916 was 112,031, being one divorce in every 10 marriages. Ten years later (viz., in 1926), the number of divorces reached the appalling total of 181,000, being about one to every seven marriages. The statistics of illegitimate births tell a similar tale. Thus in 1927 the proportion of illegitimate births was at 44 per 1,000 for England and Wales, and 29 per 1,000 for the Irish Free State.
Again, the Irish Free State has a very high proportion of births to marriages, one of the highest in Europe. England, where the birth-rate has now fallen to nearly 16 per 1,000, has the lowest birth-rate in the world as compared with the marriage rate. While all Catholic countries have a fairly high birth-rate, the birth-rate is so low in some Protestant or non-Catholic countries that the human race there is hastening to extinction. This is in fact what has occurred to the original Protestant settlers in the New England States of America, who have practically disappeared, being in large measure supplanted by the Irish, the Canadians and others.
Exact statistics of criminality are difficulty to obtain; and trustworthy comparisons between different countries are more difficult still. Anyone, however, who remembers the constant recurrence of the ceremony of presenting “white gloves” to the judges of the criminal courts in Ireland owing to the complete absence of criminal indictments a few years ago, when the country was in its normal state, and contrasts this fact with the records of the criminal courts of Great Britain and U.S.A. may draw his own conclusions.
It has been not inaptly said that “greed, robbery, oppression, rebellion, repression, wars, devastation, depredation, would be a fitting inscription on the tomb of early Protestantism.” We shall see that the latter effects of the new religion, though not so violent or dramatic, have fulfilled the promise of its earlier years. (Father Edward Cahill, S.J., The Framework of a Christian State, first published in 1932, republished by Roman Catholic Books, pp. 102-104.)
The organization of the Europe of the thirteenth century furnishes us with one concrete realization of the Divine Plan. It is hardly necessary to add that there were then to be seen defects in the working of the Divine Plan, due to the character of fallen man, as well as an imperfect mastery of physical nature. Yet, withal, the formal principle of ordered social organisation in the world, the supremacy of the Mystical Body, was grasped and, in the main, accepted. The Lutheran revolt, prepared by the cult of pagan antiquity at the Renaissance, and by the favour enjoyed by the Nominalist philosophical theories, led to the rupture of that order.” (Father Denis Fahey, The Mystical Body of Christ in the Modern World, p. 10.)
What is called “mainstream” Protestantism has degenerated over course of nearly five hundred years into such a state of chaos and disarray that its false doctrines, such as they are, have wound up being based upon the unwillingness of its adherents to keep the binding precepts of the Divine Positive Law and the Natural Law. Obviously, this unwillingness is itself the result of Martin Luther’s reaffirmation of his own life of wanton sin and debauchery as he claimed that it was impossible to keep the moral law, which is why the best that man, whom he considered nothing other than a “dung heap,” could do was to make a “profession of faith” in Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ on his lips and in his heart as he “confessed” his sins and thus knew of immediate forgiveness thereafter.
To wit, the heretical and schismatic Anglican sect, which was born of lustful King Henry VIII’s unwillingness to accept the indissolubility of the Sacrament of Holy Matrimony, has become increasingly irrelevant over the course of time as it has further falsified the basics of the Apostles’ Creed while accommodating itself to the “needs” of the “people” in the circumstances of the “real world.” A false church born of a divorce desired by a lustful king that came to propagate false doctrines and false, sacramentally barren liturgical rites has come to accept contraception, abortion, women “priests” and women “bishops” and the sin of Sodom itself after listening to “the will of the people.”
This is the path on which the counterfeit church of conciliarism has been trodding over the course of the past fifty-five years now. The path of destruction is exactly that blazed by the Protestant sects as its “popes” and “bishops” and priests or presbyters have sought to demythologize almost every word of Sacred Scripture, including the miracles wrought by Our Lord Himself, and to use its own false, blasphemous, sacramentally barren liturgical rites as the means to tickle the itching ears of its own demigod, “the people,” whose “needs” must be “met” at all costs in the name of a false gospel of “charity” and “mercy.”
As noted in Always Asking All The Wrong Questions, part one and Always Asking All the Wrong Questions, part two, the outcome of this year’s “extraordinary synod” of non-bishops is easy to predict: every accommodation will be made to those in “non-traditional families” while the “pope” and his “bishops” protest all along that they are “not changing doctrine” even though they would not recognize or accept Catholic doctrine even if Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ appeared to them in the very Flesh. Nothing must stand in the way of the “needs” of “the people.”
The former conciliar “archbishop” of Baltimore, Maryland, Edwin “Cardinal” O’Brien, who is a protege of the late Terence “Cardinal” Cooke and the late John “Cardinal” O’Connor, has more or less admitted that this is going to be the case:
U.S. Cardinal Edwin O’Brien doesn’t know what will come out of the Synod of Bishops on the family set for October, but the former archbishop of Baltimore believes it will be significant.
“Hold onto your seats,” O’Brien told a gathering of seminarians and faculty at St. Mary’s Seminary and University in Baltimore. “I think Pope Francis wants to stir things up and allow people to raise questions. I don’t think we’re going to see a change in doctrine, but we will see a change in tone, and we might see some disciplinary modifications.”
Those modifications might include adjustments in annulment procedures, O’Brien said.
“I think most bishops are very concerned that they have more say in annulments in a responsible way,” he said Jan. 27.
O’Brien’s comments were part of a wide-ranging address that touched on the retirement of Pope Benedict XVI, the election of Pope Francis and a look at how Pope Francis has governed the church in his first year.
O’Brien, grand master of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem, was present in the room when Pope Benedict announced he was stepping down in 2013. The cardinal was also part of the conclave that elected the new pope.
As head of the Buenos Aires, Argentina, archdiocese, the future Pope Francis dealt as an outsider with the Curia that helps govern the church, O’Brien said, an experience that helped shape how he would interact with the curia when Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio became pope.
“He’s seen its strengths and its weaknesses,” O’Brien said, noting that the pope’s establishment of an eight-member Council of Cardinals from around the world shows that the pope believes he needs advisers both within and outside the Curia.
The principal job of the Council of Cardinals, O’Brien said, is to “completely rewrite the central administration of the Catholic church.” The cardinal said the Curia will somehow have to relate to the new Council of Cardinals.
“I think a year from now, we’ll hardly know what the structure was, there will be so many different things that will have taken place,” O’Brien said. “Maybe the heads of some conferences of bishops will be involved. I don’t know. But we will know by the end of February because the group of eight will meet again and come up with formal recommendations.”
O’Brien highlighted several themes of Pope Francis’ young papacy, among them the importance of expanding the pope’s circle of advisers, subsidiarity, solidarity with the poor, evangelizing at the periphery of the culture and acting as a missionary church.
The cardinal cited the pope’s interview with an Italian atheist magazine editor and the pope’s strong focus on mercy as examples of his willingness to reach out to others. The pope has opened up discussions with those who feel alienated from the church, O’Brien said.
The pope is modeling an example of being prepared to go anywhere and share the faith with anyone, O’Brien said.
Inspired by the pope’s focus on the poor, O’Brien said he has become more conscious of how many times the Old and New Testaments make references to the poor. It reminds him to question himself and think about what the readings mean in light of what the pope is asking people to do in reaching the poor.
Noting that Pope Francis often compares the church to a mother, the cardinal said a mother never deserts her children.
“She’s always available to listen and always to extend mercy,” he said. (Cardinal says pope wants to ‘stir things up,’ let people ask questions.)
As a good mother, Holy Mother Church never reaffirms her children in states of Mortal Sin. She never extends false mercy or false charity or false hope to those who are rebelling against the very law of God. Holy Mother Church seeks to correct her wayward children. Anyone with a modicum of the sensus Catholicus can see that this is so. Ah, then again, the sensus Catholicus has been wiped out in the souls of most Catholics, especially those who have known nothing but conciliarism and its false liturgical rites throughout their lives, thus making it very natural for them to accept Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s “changes” after living their entire lives in a “church” and endless “change” and “novelties.”
Quite in contrast to the eagerness by which the conciliar revolutionaries desire to accommodate the “needs” of the “people,” Saint Anthony Mary Claret treated situations of illicit marriages and relationships as a Catholic, not as one who wanted to cater to the whims of “the people” by tickling their itching ears:
Here he was met by disturbing news. In this town of pilgrimage [Cobre] where the island’s most famous shrine was located, his missionaries had found hardly a dozen legitimately married couples! He praised their diligence in having substantially raised this figure prior to his arrival but–even so! This shocking situation required a strong hand–the hand of a patient but uncompromising prelate. The unhappy fact was that the Spanish-descended Cubans rarely condescended to marry their Negro and mulatto concubines, even when their half-caste progeny might number as many as nine or ten. Rightly suspecting that this intolerable state of affairs might prove typical, he attacked the problem vigorously. A committee was appointed to study each case individually. On its recommendations, he let it be known, all such unions must be regularized or, where impediments existed, dissolved!
It was a most trying undertaking, fraught with complications, both tragic and absurd. Persons who expressed their willingness, even eagerness, to legalize their unions were frequently not free to receive the Sacrament of marriage. Others, without the excuse of impediments under Church law were sometimes overcome with indignation to hear that they were expected to make wives of their colored concubines. There were emphatic affirmations that Spain prohibited mixed marriages, a fallacy the archbishop had no need to consider. In all her colonial history Spain had never forced any such regulation. However, for any who persisted in this persuasion in spite of Padre Claret’s assurances, his command was clear. They must immediately terminate their illicit unions. It would be a painful problem–the provision for their innocent children–but it would have to be faced. Although he praised God that many of these easy-going folk accepted their prelate’s reprimands contritely and docilely obeyed his injunctions to amend their lives, Cobre had certainly given him a first-hand acquaintance with the repugnant moral deterioration that had engulfed a traditionally Christian nation. (Fanchon Royer, The Life of St. Anthony Mary Claret, published originally by Farrar, Straus and Cudahy in 1957 an republished in 1985 by TAN Books and Publishers, pp. 130-131.)
Saint Anthony Mary Claret did not accept sophistries used to disguise moral relativism. Quite unlike Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis the Possessed, Saint Anthony Mary Claret preached Catholic doctrinal truth to the people of Cobre, Cuba, knowing that this truth possesses the inherent power to attract and to covert an unprejudiced soul who is willing to cooperate with the graces sent to them by Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through the loving hands of Our Lady, she who is the Mediatrix of All Graces.
Countless are the examples of Catholic bishops and priests, many of them raised to the altars of Holy Mother Church, who worked to reform the morals of the people who had been entrusted to their pastoral care.
Another Spaniard, Saint Francis Solano, for example, preached a sermon in the public square in Lima, Peru, in 1610 during which he prophesied of the great earthquake that God would visit upon Lima to chastise the people there for their ingratitude and immorality:
By the time Francis had reached the market, the theme of his sermon was clear. God was love, yet man was constantly thwarting that love. Many times this was because of thoughtlessness, but there were also countless times when it was because of sheer selfishness, and even malice. Well, atonement for sin must be made by means of penance.
“Unless you do penance, you shall likewise,” Our Lord had said to his disciples.
“I will say these words, too,” Francis thought. “Oh, Heavenly Father, may they help some souls tonight to turn away from sin!”
Naturally many at the market were astonished when they saw the Father Guardian of Saint Mary of the Angels making his way through their midst. Since his return from Trujillo he had appeared in the streets only rarely, and certainly never in the evenings. Then in a little while there was even more astonishment. Father Francis had come not to buy for his friars, or even to beg. He had come to preach!
At first, however, since business was brisk, not much heed was paid to his words. Merchants vied with one another in calling out the merits of their wares while customers argued noisily for a lower price. Beggars whined for alms. Babies cried. Dogs barked. Donkeys brayed. Older children ran in and out of the crowd intent upon their games. Music was everywhere–weird tunes played by Indian musicians on their wooden flutes, gay Spanish rhythms played on guitar and tambourine. At the various food students succulent rounds of meat sizzled and sputtered as they turned over slow fires. Then suddenly a thunderous voice rang about above the noisy and carefree scene:
“For all that is in the world is the concupiscence of the flesh, and the concupiscence of the eyes, and the pride of life, which is not of the Father but is in the world.”
It was as though a bombshell had fallen. At once the hubbub died away, and hundreds of Lima’s startled citizens turned to where a grey-clad friar, cross in hand, had mounted an elevation in the center of the marketplace and now stood gazing down upon them with eyes of burning coals. But before anyone could wonder about the text from Saint John’s first epistle, Francis began to explain the meaning of concupiscence: that, because of Original Sin, it is the tendency within each person to do evil instead of good; that this hidden warfare will end only when we have drawn our last breath.
“If we were to die tonight, would good or evil be the victor within our hearts” he cried. “Oh, my friends! Think about this question. Think hard!
Within just a few minutes Lima’s marketplace was as hushed and solemn as a cathedral. All eyes were riveted upon the Father Guardian and all ears were filled with his words as he described God’s destruction of the ancient cities of Sodom and Gomorrha because of the sins committed within them.
“Who is to say that here in Lima we do not deserve a like fate?” he demanded in ringing tones. “Look into your hearts now, my children. Are they clean? Are they pure? Are they filled with love of God?”
As the minutes passed and twilight deepened into darkness, the giant torches of the marketplace cast their flickering radiance over a moving scene. As usual, crowds of people were on hand, but now no one was interested in buying or selling. Instead, faces were bewildered, agonized and fearful. Tears were streaming from many eyes as Francis’ words continued to pour out in torrents, urging repentance while there was still time.
“Can we say that we shall ever see tomorrow?” he cried, fervently brandishing his missionary cross. “Can we say that this night is not the last we shall have in which to return to God’s friendship?”
As these and still more terrifying thoughts struck home one after another, the speaker stretched out both arms, bowed his head, and in heartrending tones began the Fifth Psalm. At once the crowd was filled with fresh sorrow and made the contrite phrases their own:
“Have mercy on me, O God, according to Thy great mercy.
“And according to the multitude of Thy tender mercies, blot out my iniquity.
“Wash me yet more from my iniquity, and cleanse me from my sin.
“For I know my iniquity, and my sins is always before me.
“To Thee only have I sinned, and have done evil before Thee: that Thou mayest be justified in Thy words, and mayest overcome when Thou art judged . . .”
Soon wave upon wave of sound was filling the torch lit marketplace as priest and people prayed together. Then Francis preached again, doing his est to implant a greater sorrow for sin and an even firmer purpose of amendment in the hearts of his hearers. Finally, looking neither to right nor left, he prepared to depart for Saint Mary of the Angels. But on all sides men and women pressed about him, sobbing and begging for his blessing.
“Father, please pray for me!” cried one young girl. “I’ve deserved to go to Hell a thousand times!”
“Last year, I robbed a poor widow of ten pounds of gold!” declared a swarthy-faced Spaniard. “May God forgive me!”
“‘I’m worse than anyone,” moaned a wild-eyed black man.
“Tonight, I was going to kill a man . . . and for money!”
So it was that first one, then another, cried out his fault and expressed a desire to go to Confession at once. But Francis had to refuse all such requests. Yes, he was a priest. It was his privilege and duty to administer the Sacraments. But he was also a religious, and bound by rule to various observances. One of them was that he must be in his cell at Saint Mary of the Angels by a certain hour each night.
“There are other priests in the city who can help you, though,” he said kindly. “Go them now, my children. And may the Holy Virgin bring you back to her Son without delay.” (Mary Fabyan Windeatt, Saint Francis of Solano: Wonderworker of the New World and Apostle of Argentina and Peru, published originally by Sheed and Ward in 1946 and republished by TAN Books and Publishers in 1994, pp. 167-172.)
This is just a slight contrast with the approach taken by Jorge Mario Bergoglio and his band of conciliar revolutionaries who doubts the ability of the truths of the Divine Positive Law and the Natural Law, when preached with conviction for love of Christ the King and for the souls for whom He shed every single drop of His Most Precious Blood on the wood of the Holy Cross to redeem, to touch hearts and to reform lives in an instant.
The false compassion of the counterfeit church of conciliarism that is going the way of all heretical sects is of the devil, not of Our Lord Himself.
Our Lord shows us erring sinners authentic compassion by understanding the weakness that causes us to sin while He despises our sins and exhorts us to amend our lives with promptness. He did not condemn Saint Mary Magdalene when she was caught in the act of adultery. He did not mince words, however, about what she was to do with her life: reform it at once:
Neither will I condemn thee. Go, and now sin no more. (John 8: 11.)
“Go, and now sin no more” does not mean that one is free to “journey with everyone as they “accompany” them on their “challenges.”
More and more Catholics are living in sin now than at any time in the past because the truths of the Catholic Faith have never been taught to them at home or in their supposedly Catholic schools and it has never been preached to them from the pulpit.
The sheep of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ’s true flock is starving for the milk of his Sacred Truth and of His supernatural helps offered in the Sacraments, including the Sacrament of Penance.
Alas, the sheep hath not this truth and these supernatural helps. They are literally starving for them spiritually. And the world is suffering mightily because of the self-serving “compassion” that Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis the Possessed offers in the place of the Holy Faith in all of Its doctrinal integrity and purity and in place of the true Sacraments.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio does not believe we just have to “live” with things the way they are, that the family, for instance, is never going to be “restructured” the way it once was. He is so proud of this false “insight,” offered first when he was the conciliar “archbishop” of Buenos Aires, the capital of one of the very countries in South America that Saint Francis Solano served as a missionary over four hundred years ago now, and that he saw fit to have circulated to the priests and presbyters of the Diocese of Rome prior his session with nearly five months ago now at the Basilica of Saint John Lateran in Rome:
Vatican City, 16 September 2013 (VIS) – This morning, following the usual morning Mass at Santa Marta, the Holy Father proceeded to the Basilica of St. John Lateran to meet with the Clergy of Rome.
In preparation for the meeting and to meet the Pope’s request, Cardinal Vicar Agostino Vallini circulated among the priests of the diocese of Rome a reflection on priestly identity in the light of the Aparecida Document presented by the then Cardinal Bergoglio during the Fifth Conference of Latin American Bishops.
In the paper, the then archbishop of Buenos Aires discussed how in Aparecida one became aware of changing times, “not in the many partial ways that anyone might find in the daily actions one performs, but rather in the meaning that gives unity to all that exists”.
“The defining aspect of this change of epoch is that things are no longer in their place. Our previous ways of explaining the world and relationships, good and bad, no longer appears to work. The way in which we locate ourselves in history has changed. Things we thought would never happen, or that we never thought we would see, we are experiencing now, and we dare not even imagine the future. That which appeared normal to us – family, the Church, society and the world – will probably no longer seem that way. We cannot simply wait for what we are experiencing to pass, under the illusion that things will return to being how they were before”.
In the document, Bergoglio presents the mission as a proposal and challenge in the face of these changes, and encourages the pastor to be “an ardent missionary who lives the constant desire to seek out the remote, not content with simple administration”, and reiterates that “a transformation in pastoral action and a consequent transforming pastoral action can only occur when mediated by the interior transformation of the agents of pastoral care and the members of the community they form. … To become once again a Church driven by evangelical momentum and audacity, we must again become faithful and evangelised disciples”. (Francis the Possessed Unleashed.)
“Evangelised disciples” of what?
Of concilairism, which has aided and abetted the Protestant-Judeo/Masonic attack on the Sacred Deposit of Faith and thus made the triumph of naturalism possible, replete with all the rampant moral deterioration that must take place when the actual truth of the Holy Gospel of Christ the King is not preached and when most people in the world are deprived of Sanctifying Grace.
Contrary to what Jorge Mario Bergoglio, there will be a restoration. Pope Saint Pius X told us one hundred three years ago at the end of The Oath Against Modernism that we are to “pray for the restoration that is to come.”
I don’t know about you, but I take the word of Pope Saint Pius X over that of Francis the Possessed.
Obviously, that restoration will not occur until after a major chastisement, which our own sins and those of the whole world of the blaspheming, heretical lords of conciliarism so richly deserved. However, Our Lady did promise us in the Cova da Iria near Fatima, Portugal, that her Immaculate Heart shall triumph in the end, and indeed it will.
To seek to use false compassion and sloganeering to make complex that which is quite simple, something that Jorge Mario Bergoglio does regularly, is one of the oldest tools of the devil, who is certainly being served quite ably, whether wittingly or unwittingly, by the hierarchy of the counterfeit church of conciliarism that has gone to great lengths to create an environment that sanctions sin, including unnatural sins of perversity, in the parishes and seminaries and schools and universities and colleges and religious education programs under their control.
The false compassion of Jorge Mario Bergoglio and his blasphemous misrepresentation of how Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ dealt with malefactors as He walked the face of this earth is in need of a corrective remedy, one that will be supplied by the words of Pope Saint Pius X that were issued a little over one hundred three years ago now:
We wish to draw your attention, Venerable Brethren, to this distortion of the Gospel and to the sacred character of Our Lord Jesus Christ, God and man, prevailing within the Sillon and elsewhere. As soon as the social question is being approached, it is the fashion in some quarters to first put aside the divinity of Jesus Christ, and then to mention only His unlimited clemency, His compassion for all human miseries, and His pressing exhortations to the love of our neighbor and to the brotherhood of men. True, Jesus has loved us with an immense, infinite love, and He came on earth to suffer and die so that, gathered around Him in justice and love, motivated by the same sentiments of mutual charity, all men might live in peace and happiness. But for the realization of this temporal and eternal happiness, He has laid down with supreme authority the condition that we must belong to His Flock, that we must accept His doctrine, that we must practice virtue, and that we must accept the teaching and guidance of Peter and his successors. Further, whilst Jesus was kind to sinners and to those who went astray, He did not respect their false ideas, however sincere they might have appeared. He loved them all, but He instructed them in order to convert them and save them. Whilst He called to Himself in order to comfort them, those who toiled and suffered, it was not to preach to them the jealousy of a chimerical equality. Whilst He lifted up the lowly, it was not to instill in them the sentiment of a dignity independent from, and rebellious against, the duty of obedience. Whilst His heart overflowed with gentleness for the souls of good-will, He could also arm Himself with holy indignation against the profaners of the House of God, against the wretched men who scandalized the little ones, against the authorities who crush the people with the weight of heavy burdens without putting out a hand to lift them. He was as strong as he was gentle. He reproved, threatened, chastised, knowing, and teaching us that fear is the beginning of wisdom, and that it is sometimes proper for a man to cut off an offending limb to save his body. Finally, He did not announce for future society the reign of an ideal happiness from which suffering would be banished; but, by His lessons and by His example, He traced the path of the happiness which is possible on earth and of the perfect happiness in heaven: the royal way of the Cross. These are teachings that it would be wrong to apply only to one’s personal life in order to win eternal salvation; these are eminently social teachings, and they show in Our Lord Jesus Christ something quite different from an inconsistent and impotent humanitarianism.
As for you, Venerable Brethren, carry on diligently with the work of the Saviour of men by emulating His gentleness and His strength. Minister to every misery; let no sorrow escape your pastoral solicitude; let no lament find you indifferent. But, on the other hand, preach fearlessly their duties to the powerful and to the lowly; it is your function to form the conscience of the people and of the public authorities. The social question will be much nearer a solution when all those concerned, less demanding as regards their respective rights, shall fulfill their duties more exactingly. (Pope Saint Pius X, Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910.)
As has been noted on this site many times in the past, the spirit of the Sillon that was condemned in no uncertain terms by Pope Saint Pius X is the spirit of the “Second” Vatican Council and the “magisterium” of the conciliar “popes.”
Was Pope Saint Pius X wrong?
The words of the last true pope to be canonized serve as a stinging rebuke to Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s blasphemous misrepresentation of the life and the work of the teaching of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
Is it “harsh” for a physician to warn one of his patients that he risks having a heart attack if he does not lose body weight?
Is it “harsh” for a physician to warn one of his patients who suffers from diabetes to take his medication and to eat properly so that the disease will not worsen.
Is a physician being “judgmental” when he informs a person of a terminal disease that will take that person’s life?
How is it being “harsh” to perform the Spiritual Work of Mercy of admonishing the sinner out of true love for the eternal fate of his immortal soul that he is displeasing God, Who wants us to quit our sins, and is risking the fires of Hell for all eternity if he does not reform his life?
We are face to face with what Saint Paul himself prophesied would occur before Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ’s Second Coming to judge the living and the dead on the Last Day:
And now you know what withholdeth, that he may be revealed in his time.  For the mystery of iniquity already worketh; only that he who now holdeth, do hold, until he be taken out of the way.  And then that wicked one shall be revealed whom the Lord Jesus shall kill with the spirit of his mouth; and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming, him,  Whose coming is according to the working of Satan, in all power, and signs, and lying wonders,  And in all seduction of iniquity to them that perish; because they receive not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. Therefore God shall send them the operation of error, to believe lying:
 That all may be judged who have not believed the truth, but have consented to iniquity. (2 Thess. 2: 6-10.)
The Challoner commentary on the Douay-Rheims Bible explains verse ten quoted above in the following manner:
 “God shall send”… That is God shall suffer them to be deceived by lying wonders, and false miracles, in punishment of their not entertaining the love of truth.
The devil has sent–and will continue to send–lying wonders and false miracles within the counterfeit church of conciliarism so as to give “credibility” to the sort of false “compassion” that Francis the Possessed misrepresents so blasphemously being the approach of Our Lord Himself, which it is is not.
Plain Catholic truth is just too much for conciliar revolutionaries such as Jorge Mario Bergoglio.
We must pray for their conversion to the true Faith lest they perish for all eternity in Hell for the lies that they tell in their apparent exercise of the ecclesiastical authority of the Catholic Church.
Men such as Jorge Mario Bergoglio and his ban of conciliar revolutionaries are indeed preparing the way for the coming of Antichrist by saying and doing things that are indeed opposed to the teaching and example of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ Himself.
The counterfeit church of conciliarism is thus going the way of all heretical sects into the abyss of rank unbelief and moral licentiousness. Catholics must face this truth once and for all as they reject its officials as nothing other than imposters who have been raised up by the devil himself to prepare the way for Antichrist.
Importantly, though, we must face the plain truth about ourselves every night when we make our Nightly Examen of Conscience. We are sinners. We must reform our lives on a daily basis.
We must live more penitentially with every beat of our hearts, consecrated as they must be to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.
We must detach ourselves more and more from the falsehoods of the world, the flesh, and the devil–and from the devil’s minions in the counterfeit church of conciliarism.
We must grow in holiness as we pray for the sufferings necessary to pay back what we owe God for our sins, accepting every suffering and disappointment and humiliation and castigation as coming from His loving hand to bend our strong, distorted wills so that we can grow in true love for Him as we offer up all to Him all of the trials of this life through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, praying as many Rosaries each day as our state-in-life permits.
Perhaps it wise once again to recall the words of Pope Pius XI to be assured that the good God is going to bring good of the mess in which find ourselves at this time:
We may well admire in this wonderful wisdom of the Providence of God, Who, ever bringing good out of evil, has from time to time suffered the faith and piety of men to grow weak, and allowed Catholic truth to be attacked by false doctrines, but always with the result that truth has afterwards shone out with greater splendor, and that men’s faith, aroused from its lethargy, has shown itself more vigorous than before . . . . But if the faithful were generally to understand that it behooves them ever to fight courageously under the banner of Christ their King, then, fired with apostolic zeal, they would strive to win over to their Lord those hearts that are bitter and estranged from Him, and would valiantly defend His rights. (Pope Pius XI, Quas Primas, December 11, 1925.)
