This article somehow got itself posted before it had been completed. While it is possible that I could have pressed the “publish” button rather than the “save” button lat evening, I don’t remember doing so.
Anyhow, this third installment in my current series reviewing Bergoglio’s last year was meant to be prefaced with an introduction to several recent events, including efforts made by those who do recognize while resist the false “pontiff” to refute the principles of sedevacantism.
As this article did get published, however, I will save those comments for part four, permitting readers to review the text as published. Work on part four thus commences immediately.
This installment provides an overview of Bergoglio’s activities from March 30, 2013, to May 8, 2013, documenting various “firsts” in his “Petrine Ministry,” including the first of his verbal volleys against faithful Catholics.
Saturday, March 30, 2013, Protestant and Judeo-Masonic Easter Vigil service:
Jorge Mario Bergoglio has been a broken record for the past year as he has repeated pet themes of his repeatedly, For a phonograph needle to get stuck in the groove of a vinyl record however, it has to be lowered on to the record in the first place, and thus it is that Jorge Mario Bergoglio used the Protestant and Judeo-Masonic Easter vigil service last year to talk about “God’s surprises” for the first of many times. Don’t worry. This series is going to keep a running track of how many times Bergoglio’s “broken record” themes kept getting stuck.
To the first “Pope Francis” mention of “God’s surprises:”
We stop short, we don’t understand, we don’t know what to do. Newness often makes us fearful, including the newness which God brings us, the newness which God asks of us. We are like the Apostles in the Gospel: often we would prefer to hold on to our own security, to stand in front of a tomb, to think about someone who has died, someone who ultimately lives on only as a memory, like the great historical figures from the past. We are afraid of God’s surprises. Dear brothers and sisters, we are afraid of God’s surprises! He always surprises us! The Lord is like that. . . .
On this radiant night, let us invoke the intercession of the Virgin Mary, who treasured all these events in her heart (cf. Lk 2:19,51) and ask the Lord to give us a share in his Resurrection. May he open us to the newness that transforms, to the beautiful surprises of God. May he make us men and women capable of remembering all that he has done in our own lives and in the history of our world. May he help us to feel his presence as the one who is alive and at work in our midst. And may he teach us each day, dear brothers and sisters, not to look among the dead for the Living One. Amen. ( 30 March 2013, Fake, Phony, Fraud Abomination of an Easter Vigil.)
In other words, Bergoglio’s “holy spirit,” who is not very holy as he comes from Hades, had all manner of “surprises” in store for the world during the tenure of the Argentine Apostate as “Pope Francis.” Bergoglio was explaining last year that the “newness” of the past fifty years has “transformed” the old and is thus part of “God’s surprises” for as we learn not to hold on to that in which we had taken “false security,” namely, the immutable teaching and immoral liturgy of the Catholic Church. He was also justifying the “newness” that he has in store for Catholics and non-Catholics alike before he returns to Buenos Aires, Argentina, at some point so that he can pick up his newspapers personally while taking the bus to his day job.
For those of you keeping score at home, that’s reference number one to “God’s surprises,” meaning that Catholics must remove themselves from their “comfort zones” of “security” within the “bastions” of what they believe to be the Catholic Church.
April 6, 2013:
Jorge Mario Bergoglio began to make his rapprochement with feminists within the older communities of religious women, especially in the United States of America, by an appointing a feminist Franciscan revolutionary to serve as the secretary of Congregation for the Institutes of Consecrated life and the Societies of Apostolic Life. “Father” Jose Rodriguez Carballo was thus placed n a position to assure nervous leaders of formerly Catholic communities of religious men and women that the days of supposed “witch hunts” of the like represented by the slap on the wrist given to the Leadership Conference of Women Religious in the United States of America in 2012 were over once and for all:
The Spaniard will bring his rich international experience as head of a major religious order to his new post of responsibility. Together with Cardinal Braz de Aviz, he is expected to play a key role in working to overcome and heal the tensions between the Vatican, and in particular the Congregation for the Doctrine for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF), and the leadership of the umbrella organization of some 59,000 American women religious – the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR).
In April 2012, the CDF issued a highly critical doctrinal assessment of the situation of the LCWR, accusing them of taking positions that undermine Catholic teaching on the priesthood and homosexuality and of promoting “certain radical feminist themes incompatible with the Catholic faith.” In the light of that report, Pope Benedict appointed the US Archbishop Peter Sartain of Seattle to supervise the reform of the LCWR within five years.
In recent months it had been widely rumored in the USA and Rome that Benedict XVI would appoint an American bishop or religious priest to that key post in the Vatican congregation to reinforce that tough line, but this did not happen. Informed sources in Rome now say that by choosing Carballo, Pope Francis has clearly opted for a different, more Gospel-inspired approach to consecrated life in general and, also, to help overcome the ongoing, painful tensions with the American religious women. (Apostate Layman/Petrine Minister Picks Franciscan as Secretary of the Congregation for Religious.)
The Order of Friars Minor has been just as much a den of feminism as the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWC) in the United States of America. Indeed, many Franciscans here in the United States of America came to the rescue of the LCWC following the wrist-slapping administered by the then prefect of the conciliar Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, William “Cardinal” Levada, that was based a 2009 summary offered by “Bishop” Stephen Blair of the Diocese of Toledo that included the following points:
The decision of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) to undertake a doctrinal Assessment of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious (LCWR) was communicated to the LCWR Presidency during their meeting with Cardinal William Levada in Rome on April 8, 2008. At that meeting, three major areas of concern were given as motivating the CDF’s decision to initiate the Assessment:
o Addresses at the LCWR Assemblies. Addresses given during LCWR annual Assemblies manifest problematic statements and serious theological, even doctrinal errors. The Cardinal offered as an example specific passages of Sr. Laurie Brink’s address about some Religious “moving beyond the Church” or even beyond Jesus. This is a challenge not only to core Catholic beliefs; such a rejection of faith is also a serious source of scandal and is incompatible with religious life. Such unacceptable positions routinely go unchallenged by the LCWR, which should provide resources for member Congregations to foster an ecclesial vision of religious life, thus helping to correct an erroneous vision of the Catholic faith as an important exercise of charity. Some might see in Sr. Brink’s analysis a phenomenological snapshot of religious life today. But Pastors of the Church should also see in it a cry for help.
o Policies of Corporate Dissent. The Cardinal spoke of this issue in reference to letters the CDF received from “Leadership Teams” of various Congregations, among them LCWR Officers, protesting the Holy See’s actions regarding the question of women’s ordination and of a correct pastoral approach to ministry to homosexual persons, e.g. letters about New Ways Ministry’s conferences. The terms of the letters suggest that these sisters collectively take a position not in agreement with the Church’s teaching on human sexuality. It is a serious matter when these Leadership Teams are not providing effective leadership and example to their communities, but place themselves outside the Church’s teaching.
o Radical Feminism. The Cardinal noted a prevalence of certain radical feminist themes incompatible with the Catholic faith in some of the programs and presentations sponsored by the LCWR, including theological interpretations that risk distorting faith in Jesus and his loving Father who sent his Son for the salvation of the world. Moreover, some commentaries on “patriarchy” distort the way in which Jesus has structured sacramental life in the Church; others even undermine the revealed doctrines of the Holy Trinity, the divinity of Christ, and the inspiration of Sacred Scripture. (Doctrinal Assessment of the Leadership Conference of Women Religious.)
For a review as to why this “doctrinal assessment” was incomplete and delusional, please see Apostates Reprimanding Apostates.
Suffice it to say that “Father” Jose Rodriguez Carballo’s appointment was a clear signal to the pagans and wiccans in the conciliar religious communities that a new day had arrived, the day of Jorge the Feminist. It is no wonder that Father Hans Kung has been so pleased with Bergoglio’s “Petrineinistry” in the last year.
April 8, 2013:
Another “Pope Francis” “first” occurred on April 8, 2013: Jorge Mario Bergoglio, following the example of Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, praised the lecherous drunkard and heretic named Martin Luther for the first time:
On Monday morning, Pope Francis received in audience Dr. Nikolaus Schneider, Präses (“President”) of the Evangelical Church (Lutheran) in Germany, who was accompanied by his wife, and a small group of associates.
The head of the Holy See Press Office, Father Federico Lombardi, SJ, described the meeting as “very friendly”, noting the Präses expressed his appreciation for the choosing of the name Francis, “because it is the name of a saint that truly speaks to all Christians in a very effective manner.” The Evangelical leader also spoke about his concern for the victims of the recent flooding which has caused so much suffering in Argentina.
Father Lombardi said their ecumenical discussions focused on the value of the ecumenism of the martyrs, to which the Pope gives particular weight, since the blood of the martyrs is something which profoundly unites the various Christian denominations in a common witness to Christ.
Dr. Schneider also spoke about the upcoming anniversary of the Reformation in 2017, which is of course an extremely important commemoration for the Evangelical Church in Germany. The Pope took the opportunity to remind the Präses of the words of Pope Benedict XVI in Erfurt, where Martin Luther lived and worked, which have a particular ecumenical significance in regards to the figure of Luther in particular, as well as for relations between the Catholic Church and those ecclesial communities emerging from the Reformation. ( Francis the Hun meets head of German Non-Evangelical Sect Founded by Lecherous Drunkard Named Martin Luther.)
Ecumenism of the martyrs?
Excuse me, Jorge, baby, you fool and heretic, the Catholic Church teaches otherwise:
It [the Holy Roman Catholic Church] firmly believes, professes, and proclaims that those not living within the Catholic Church, not only pagans, but also Jews and heretics and schismatics cannot become participants in eternal life, but will depart “into everlasting fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels” [Matt. 25:41], unless before the end of life the same have been added to the flock; and that the unity of the ecclesiastical body is so strong that only to those remaining in it are the sacraments of the Church of benefit for salvation, and do fastings, almsgiving, and other functions of piety and exercises of Christian service produce eternal reward, and that no one, whatever almsgiving he has practiced, even if he has shed blood for the name of Christ, can be saved, unless he has remained in the bosom and unity of the Catholic Church. (Cantate Domino, February 4, 1442.)
Who is a member of the Catholic Church?
Well, not Dr. Nikolaus Schneider or the members of his Lutheran sect:
Actually only those are to be included as members of the Church who have been baptized and profess the true faith, and who have not been so unfortunate as to separate themselves from the unity of the Body, or been excluded by legitimate authority for grave faults committed. “For in one spirit” says the Apostle, “were we all baptized into one Body, whether Jews or Gentiles, whether bond or free.” As therefore in the true Christian community there is only one Body, one Spirit, one Lord, and one Baptism, so there can be only one faith. And therefore, if a man refuse to hear the Church, let him be considered – so the Lord commands – as a heathen and a publican. It follows that those who are divided in faith or government cannot be living in the unity of such a Body, nor can they be living the life of its one Divine Spirit. (Pope Pius XII, Mystici Corporis, June 29, 1943.)
Protestants have no “Christian witness” to give. Period. End of discussion.
Then again, the conciliarists have no “Christian witness” to give as they reject articles of the Faith and seek to redefine Catholic teaching on morality into nothing rank subjectivism.
It is no wonder that Martin Luther can be praised by conciliar “popes” when Germany has produced such deniers of articles of the Catholic Faith as Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, Robert Zollitsch, Reinhard Marx, who was recently elected to replace Zollitsch as the head of the conciliar “bishops” conference of Germany and who denies the existence of Hell, Ranier Woelki and, of course, Walter Kasper himself. Each is a firm disciple of Martin Luther.
April 13, 2013, Here Come the Commissars:
What more needs to be said about Jorge and the Commissars than was said in my four part series offering commentary on Chief Commissar Oscar Andres Maradiaga Rodriguez’s identical lectures given three days apart in Irving, Texas, and Miami, Florida, late last October? Here are the links to that series: Commissar of Antichrist Speaks, part one, Commissar of Antichrist Speaks, part two, Commissar of Antichrist Speaks, part three and Commissar of Antichrist Speaks, part four.
Yes, it was thirty-one days after his “election” that Jorge Mario Bergoglio began to assemble his own personal politburo to circumvent the conciliar curia, thereby establishing a “new” structure as the first of many of his “surprises”:
(Vatican Radio) Pope Francis has appointed a Group of Eight cardinals to advise him in the governance of the Universal Church. In a communique issued Saturday the Secretariat of State announced that the Holy Father decided to set up the Council following on from discussions that emerged during the General Congregations in the lead up to the Conclave which elected him the 265th Successor to St Peter.
The group of Cardinals will be coordinated by Card. Oscar Andrés Maradiaga Rodríguez and is drawn from across the Universal Church. It will also help Pope Francis revise the Apostolic Constitution on the Roman Curia Pastor bonus.
The group is composed of :
Card. Giuseppe Bertello, President of the Governatorate of Vatican City State; Card. Francisco Javier Errazuriz Ossa, Archbishop emeritus of Santiago del Cile (Chile);
Card. Oswald Gracias, Archbishop of Bombay (India); Card. Reinhard Marx, Archbishop of München und Freising (Germany);
Card. Laurent Monswengo Pasinya, Archbishop of Kinshasa (Democratic Republic of Congo);Card. Sean Patrick O’Malley. O.F.M. Cap., Archbishop of Boston (U.S.A.);
Card. George Pell, Archbishop of Sydney (Australia);Card. Oscar Andrés Maradiaga Rodríguez S.D.B., Archbishop of Tegucigalpa (Honduras); Mons. Marcello Semeraro, Bishop of Albano, Council secretary.
The first meeting of the Council will take place October 1-3, 2013. Pope Francis however is already in contact with all of the above mentioned Cardinals.
Briefing press Saturday the Holy See Press Office Director, Fr. Federico Lombardi, noted that the communiqué comes exactly one month since Pope’ Francis election to the Pontificate and shows that the Holy Father “listens attentively” to the suggestions of the College of Cardinals – his closest collaborators.
He also noted that the Group will have no legislative power and that its main function is to “help” and “advise” the Pope. Fr. Lombardi added that the Group will not in any way interfere in the normal functions of the Roman Curia, which helps the Pope in the daily governance of the Church. (Senor Bergoglio appoints Group of Eight Apostates to advise on Curia reform.)

April 16, 2013: Let the Insults Begin!
It was on April 16, 2013, that Jorge Mario Bergoglio began his obsessive-compulsive name-calling campaign against anyone and everyone who holds to the immutable teachings of the Catholic Church. This man has a deep-seated hatred of the authentic teaching of Holy Mother Church and a contempt for those who are committed to its protection.
What began on April 16, 2013, continues to this very day. However, let the record show that the first insult, that of “stubborn,” was hurled by Bergoglio at the Casa Santa Marta on that day:
Vatican City (AsiaNews) – Vatican II “was a beautiful work of the Holy Spirit,” and yet, 50 years later, there is no “Church continuity”. There are “stubborn” members who even want to turn back and “tame the Holy Spirit.” Pope Francis took the opportunity to speak about the Council 50 years since it opened, inspired by the passage in the Acts of the Apostles that tells the story of Stephen who, before he was stoned, described as “stubborn” those who oppose the Holy Spirit.
The Holy Father spoke during the Mass he celebrated this morning in the chapel of Santa Marta (pictured), dedicated to Benedict XVI, who turns 86 today, so that “the Lord may be with him, comfort him and give him much consolation.” Francis personally extended his good wishes to Benedict XVI with whom he spoke by phone.
Vatican Radio reported that, during the homily, when he commented Stephen’s words and remembered Jesus’ rebuke to the disciples of Emmaus, “Oh, how foolish you are! How slow of heart to believe all that the prophets spoke!”, the Pope said that “always, even among us, there is resistance to the Holy Spirit.”
“To put it plainly, the Holy Spirit gives us trouble. Because it moves us, makes us walk, impels the Church to go forward. And we are like Peter at the Transfiguration, ‘Ah, how nice to be this way, all together!’ . . . As long as it does not bother us. We want the Holy Spirit to doze off . . . we want to tame the Holy Spirit. That is wrong. Because He is God and He is the wind that comes and goes and one does not know from where. It is God’s power; it is what gives us consolation and strength to go on. But, going ahead! This bothers us. Comfort is better.”
“Today,” the pope went on to say, “it seems that we are all happy” for the presence of the Holy Spirit, but that “is not true. Such temptation is still topical. Case in point, let us think about the Council.”
“The Council was a beautiful work of the Holy Spirit. Consider Pope John. He looked like a good parish priest; he was obedient to the Holy Spirit and he did it. But after 50 years, have we have done everything the Holy Spirit told us in the Council? In the continuity of growth of the Church that was the Council? No. We celebrate this anniversary, we make a monument, as long as it does not bother us. We do not want to change. What is more, some people want to go back. This is stubbornness, this is what we call, trying to tame the Holy Spirit, this is what we call becoming foolish and slow of heart.“
“The same thing happens even in our personal lives, “the pope added. In fact, “the Spirit moves us to take a more evangelical way,” but we resist. The final exhortation is “Do not resist the Holy Spirit. The Spirit sets us free, with Jesus’ freedom, with the freedom of God’s children.”
“Do not resist the Holy Spirit. This is the grace I wish we would all ask for from the Lord: to be docile towards the Holy Spirit, that Spirit that comes from us and makes us go forward on the path of holiness, the beautiful holiness of the Church, the grace of docility towards the Holy Spirit.” (“Stubborn” are those who would turn back from Vatican II, Senor Bergoglio says.)
It is Jorge Mario Bergoglio who has repeatedly blasphemed God the Holy Ghost, Who is immutable, as he maintains his own stubborn, hard-headed adherence to the doctrinal, moral, liturgical and pastoral revolutions wrought by the “Second” Vatican Council and the magisterium of the conciliar “popes. The man’s beliefs are nothing other than a denial of the very nature of God Himself and of the very Divine Constitution of the Church that He founded upon the Rock of Peter, the Pope.
For Jorge Mario Bergoglio to be correct, God the Holy Ghost either did not direct the council fathers of Holy Mother Church’s twenty general councils to formulate dogmas that condemn the apostasies, blasphemies, sacrileges and innovations of conciliarism or He “decided” after over nineteen hundred years to jettison the direction given in the past. Neither is possible.
It is very clear that Jorge Mario Bergoglio does not believe in Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ as He has revealed Himself to us exclusively in His Catholic Church. He believes in a redeemer of his own making, which is nothing other than paganism wrapped up in Catholic-sounding words now and again, something that has been explained this site at great length over the years.
April 21, 2013:
Jorge Mario Bergoglio revealed his “inner feminist” when he announced his intention to appoint women to key positions in the Vatican:
POPE FRANCIS plans to appoint lay women to top jobs in the Vatican and to dilute the power of Italian cardinals in a radical shake-up of the Catholic Church’s government following a series of scandals.
In a move branded as “revolutionary” by Vatican watchers, the Pope last weekend appointed eight cardinals to advise him on the governance and reform of the Curia, the church’s bureaucracy which has been tainted by controversies over child sex abuse by priests, leaks of papal files and allegations of corruption.
In an interview with The Sunday Times, Cardinal Oscar Andres Rodriguez Maradiaga of Honduras, whom Francis named to head the panel and who is now seen as a “power behind the papal throne”, predicted a difficult fight ahead for the Argentine pontiff.
“What we’ve seen during this month and the reactions of the whole world have conveyed hope to millions of the faithful and brought closer many people who felt distant from the church,” said Maradiaga, who is the Archbishop of Tegucigalpa.
But he cautioned: “His task will not be an easy one, especially when he has to make some necessary changes.”
Tipped as a papal contender in the conclave which picked Francis, Maradiaga, 70, is known for his dynamism. He is a pilot, plays the saxophone and the piano and speaks six languages. As the head of Caritas Internationalis, the church’s charitable arm, he has criticised the Curia and shares the Pope’s vision of “a poor church, for the poor”.
Asked about hopes that the Pope will appoint more women to top Vatican jobs, Maradiaga replied: “This wish is eagerly shared by [all] the continents.”
Last month Francis, in a break with tradition, washed the feet of two young women at a juvenile detention centre, a surprising departure from church rules that restrict the Holy Thursday ritual to men.
“Francis’s predecessor [Benedict XVI] started to promote women by appointing them to be the secretaries of some departments. But if there are cases where a woman can do a better job than a man as the head of a department, then why not?” said a Vatican prelate.
Maradiaga spoke of the need to give the global church a greater voice amid calls for change in the 200-member, European-dominated College of Cardinals, traditionally the Pope’s primary advisers.
“The holy father wants to listen to voices from the whole church and therefore has nominated cardinals from every continent [to the panel],” said Maradiaga.
During pre-conclave meetings, he said, several cardinals had criticised the “very large and disproportionate number of cardinals from Europe compared with the other continents and within Europe a greater number of Italians”. The cardinals had urged “a greater presence from the rest of the church”.
Only one Italian, Giuseppe Bertello, the governor of the Vatican, has been put on the new panel. The Pope intends to dilute the domination of both cardinals and top Vatican officials from Europe — and especially Italy — and to shift the focus from the developed north to the developing south, which contains most of the world’s Catholics.
Asked how future reforms could help to turn the page on past scandals, including allegations of money laundering that had involved the Institute for Religious Works, better known as the Vatican Bank, Maradiaga said: “The Curia fulfils a well deserving role and the majority of those who serve within it are people of excellent quality.
“If some have failed we’ll find a way to turn these weaknesses into opportunities,” he added.
The new panel headed by Maradiaga is Francis’s first significant decision, so much so that it is seen as a radical step towards more democracy in the church.
Alberto Melloni, an Italian church historian, called it “the most important step in the history of the church for the past 10 centuries”.
Although the panel will have an advisory role, it will bypass the Vatican bureaucracy and give the Pope what Maradiaga calls “first-hand information” from bishoprics worldwide.
Before the last conclave several cardinals had appealed for more “collegiality” in the way the church is run and for sharing more power with local churches. The panel’s other members are from Chile, America, Italy, Germany, Australia, India and the Democratic Republic of Congo. Many have called for a radical shake-up of the Curia.
Archbishop Claudio Maria Celli sets out the new Pope’s desire to change the Catholic Church.
Some cardinals have called for term limits on Vatican jobs to prevent priests from becoming career bureaucrats and for better financial reporting to clean up the Vatican’s finances. Budget cuts are also likely.
In a taste of austerity to come, Francis last week scrapped the tradition that the Vatican’s 4,000 employees are paid a bonus when a pope is elected. He chose instead to give the money, €500 (£430) for each worker, to charity.
Given the scale of his task, Maradiaga will have less time to fly the Beechcraft King Air that friends lend him. He comes from a family of pilots and said that he had been fascinated by aviation since he was a child.
“I was able to learn to fly and every now and again I do so. It makes me feel closer to the Lord,” he said. (Petrine Minister’s strongman blasts old guard aside.)
Ever steeped in the anti-Incarnational premises of Modernity with which Modernism has made its “official reconciliation,” revolutionaries such as Oscar Andres Rodriguez Maradiaga believe that endless change in the direction of egalitarianism and democracy.
Women must be “empowered” even though the fairest flower of our race, the Blessed Virgin Mary, without whose perfect fiat to the will of God the Father we would not have been saved, described herself as the handmaid of the Lord.
The most prominent woman appointed by Jorge Mario Bergoglio thus far is Francesca Chaouqui, who was appointed to a panel to help the homosexual clerical abuser, “Monsigor” Battista Ricca, to reform the Institution of Religious Works, commonly known as the Vatican Bank. News about her appointment made headlines for several reasons, including the immodest, suggestive photograph of herself that she posted on her “Facebook” page that was removed shortly after the announcement of her appointment on July 19, 2013:
After that of the prelate of the IOR, another appointment is raising strong objections at the Vatican and outside of it.
It is that of thirty-year-old Francesca Immacolata Chaouqui, the only Italian among the eight members of the newly created pontifical commission reporting on the organization of the financial-administrative structure of the Holy See, instituted by Pope Francis on July 18:
An extraordinary coup for an expert in communication like Francesca Chaouqui, who works at the multinational Ernst & Young but is also an assiduous informer for Dagospia.com, the number one collector in Italy of leaks and dirt concerning the world of the Vatican.
Not only that. From her Twitter page it emerges that Francesca Chaouqui has a direct connection with Gianluigi Nuzzi, whom she says she admires.
Nuzzi is the journalist who received and published the confidential documents taken from the desk of Benedict XVI by his butler Paolo Gabriele, who was afterward arrested and sentenced. (A New Scandal: The Appointment of Francesca Chaouqui.)
It turned out that Francesca Chaouqui’s immodesty was not the only scandal surrounding her appointment. The fact that she worked for the pro-abortion, pro-perversity Ernst and Young accounting firm is a scandal in and of itself, something that Mrs. Randy Engel documented thoroughly in Vatican hires world’s leading pro-homosexual corporations as advisors.
Yes, Jorge is all for “women,” isn’t he?
April 25, 2013: No Conquering Redeemer
Continuing his relentless tearing apart of the Holy Faith, the revolutionary named Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis, who is ever so humble, you know (and if you don’t, he will tell you), explained in of his impromptu sermonettes during the staging of the Protestant Judeo-Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical service on April 25, 2013, the Feast of Saint Mark, that the Gospel must be preached without a “spirit of conquest:”
The Pope presided over Mass this morning, the feast of the Evangelist St. Mark, at the Domus Sanctae Marthae. Among those present were members of the Secretariat of the Synod of Bishops, accompanied by their secretary general, Archbishop Nikola Eterovic.
Francis, noting that today’s Gospel narrates Jesus’ Ascension, emphasized that, before he was taken up into heaven, the Lord sent his Apostles to proclaim the Gospel “to the ends of the earth, not just in Jerusalem or in Galilee. … The horizon is wide and, as you can see, this is the nature of the Church’s missionary action. The Church goes forward with this proclaiming to all, to all the world. But she does not go forward alone: she goes with Jesus. … The Lord works with all those who preach the Gospel.”
The Bishop of Rome also referenced the First Letter of Peter, which defines the Christian style of preaching; “humility, service, charity, fraternal love. But—’Lord, we have to conquer the world!’ That word, ‘conquer’, doesn’t belong. We have to preach to the world. The Christian cannot be like the soldiers who, when they win the battle, make a clean sweep of everything. The Christian announces the Gospel by his witness more than by his words, and this goes two ways…: a great spirit is not frightened by great things, of going forward toward unending horizons, and the humility of being aware of the little things.” (Liturgical Travesty at Casa Santa Marta: Preaching the Gospel to the World Without Spirit of Conquest.)
Perhaps Emperor Constantine must have misread that sign in the sky on October 28, 312, before the Battle of Milvian Bridge against Emperor Maxentius. Yes, Emperor Constantine saw a Cross in the sky above the following words: In hoc signo vinces” (“In this sign you will conquer”) as conquest has nothing to do with the apostate work of the counterfeit church of conciliarism.
Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, Whose very Holy Cross was found on this day by Sant Helena, the mother of Emperor Constantine to whom that sign in the sky had been given, wants us to conquer the force of the world, the flesh and the devil in our souls on a daily basis. He wants us to help others to do so.
Yes, the battle for the sanctification and salvation of our immortal souls, redeemed as they were by the shedding of every single drop of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ’s Most Precious Blood on the wood of the Holy Cross, is a daily conquest, one that we cannot achieve on our own power whatsoever. We must rely upon the ineffable graces He won for us on the wood of that Holy Cross and that flow into our hearts and souls through the loving hands of Our Lady, she who is the Mediatrix of All Graces.
The battle for Christendom was won both by shedding of the blood of the early martyrs, including the saints we commemorate today–Pope Saint Alexander and Saints Theodulus, Eventius and Juvenal. The blood of the martyrs is indeed the seed of Holy Mother Church.
Just as is the case with our immortal souls, however, the battle for Christendom is a constant conquest of the enemies of Christ the King and Holy Mother Church. It is a battle that will end only after the defeat of the forces of the devil, which will indeed be a conquest for Christ the King and His Holy Church’
Christus Vincit, Christus Regnat, Christus Imperat!
April 27, 2013: Let the Insults Continue!
Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s obsessive-compulsive name-calling campaign against faithful Catholics continued eleven days after it had begun as he used the word “Pharisee” for the first time to refer to them:
“Look to Christ who has sent us to preach the Gospel to proclaim His name with joy”: this call by Pope Francis addressed a group gathered this Saturday on the fourth week of the Easter in the chapel of Vatican Guest House “Domus Sanctae Marthae”.
The Christians should have no fear of the “joy of the Spirit.”
That withdrawal to self would be defeated.
At the service, the staff of the Vatican post office and the charitable organization “Santa Marta” participated.
“Santa Marta” has supported children of needy families, every nationality and religion in Rome for 90 years.
“It seemed as if this happiness can never be worn down,” the Pope said on the text of the reading of the day (Acts 13:44-52) on trust in Christ, the community of the disciples in Antioch, when they had gathered to hear the word of the Lord.
Thus, Francis wondered why the community of “withdrawn Jews”, “a small group”, “good people”, such were jealous when they saw the multitudes of Christians, and so began to persecute them.
“Simply because the community had a closed heart, because it was not open to the novelty of the Holy Spirit,” said Francis, “They believed that everything had already been said that everything was as they thought that there must be, and therefore they felt themselves to be the defenders of the faith and began to speak against the apostles, to slander them … “
“The slander …” exclaimed the pope: “And so they went to address the pious women who had power. They filled their heads with ideas, with things, and urged them to talk to their husbands, which they would proceed against the apostles. This is an attitude of this group and also of all other groups in history, the closed groups: to negotiate with the powerful, solve the problems, but between ourselves’ … Just as those who had done on the morning of the resurrection, when the soldiers had gone, to tell them, ‘We have seen the’ … ‘ Shut up! Go … ‘. And with the money they have covered everything.”
Precisely, for the Pope, the attitude of this “closed religiosity” which does not have the freedom to be open to the Lord: “Your community life is in constant defense of the truth – because they believe that defending the truth is always slander, chatter … Really, they are a community of talkers who talk against it, destroy the others and look inward, always inward as closed off by a wall. The free community, however went ahead with the freedom of God and the Holy Spirit, suffering also under the persecution. And the word of the Lord spread through the whole region.”
Preceding the spreading of the witness is just the property of the congregation of the Lord, “because the good thing is this: it spreads more! The good does not retract into itself. This is a criterion, a criterion for being Church [sic], for our conscience: how are our communities, religious communities, parishes? Are they communities that are open to the Holy Spirit, Who always brings it forward to spread the word of God, or are they closed communities with very specific commandments that are unloaded on the shoulders of the faithful as the Lord had said of the Pharisees?”
The persecution begin “just for religious reasons and because of jealousy.” Yet the disciples “were not only full of the joy of the Holy Spirit, they spoke of beauty, they provided a route.”
The closed and confident community, seeking their safety in negotiating with the powerful or the money, “speaks with spiteful words, they insult, they condemn. That’s just their attitude. Maybe they forget when they were little the caresses of the mother. Such communities know nothing of tenderness, they know something of the duty how to do something, they know how to lock in an apparent observance of the commandments. As Jesus had told them, ‘You are like a grave, like a tomb, white, beautiful, but nothing more.’ We think today of the Church, which is so beautiful: this Church continues on. Think! many of the brothers and sisters who are suffering because of this freedom of spirit and are persecuted now in many parts of the world. But these brothers and sisters are fulfilled in the suffering and joy of the Holy Spirit.”
Finally Francis directed them to see Jesus, “He sends us to preach the Gospel with joy to proclaim His name, full of joy.” The Pope underlined that you never could have “fear of the joy of the Spirit,” a fear that leads to closing in upon itself. (Apostate Francis Criticizes the “Closed Religiosity” of the Jews.)
Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ was not and is not any kind of a “novelty,” although the prophetic words spoken of Him by Isaias may seen somewhat novel to most Catholics all across the the vast expanse of the ecclesiastical divide at this time.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis was not criticizing contemporary Talmudic Judaism last year. He wouldn’t ever dream of doing that!
No, he was criticizing the “closed-minded community” of those Catholics who refuse to accept the “novelties of the Holy Spirit” today, that is, those Catholics who refuse to accept the apostasies, blasphemies and sacrileges of his false sect, the counterfeit church of conciliarism.
Unlike his predecessor as the Petrine Minister of the Occupy Vatican Movement, Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis is not stressing the philosophically absurd and dogmatically condemned “hermeneutic of continuity” that is nothing other than a relabeling of Modernism’s “evolution of dogma.” No, Bergoglio/Francis continues to be on a veritable crusade, a word that he would loathe to use, of course, to berate “closed-minded” traditionalists into accept that which can never come from the Third Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, God the Holy Ghost, “novelties.” No sale, Jorge. No sale.
May 2, 2013: Insult Number Three: “The ‘no church'”
It was “stubborn” and closed-minded on April 16 and “Pharisee” on April 27. The first reference to the “no church” was made on the Feast of Saint Athanasius:
Pope Francis focused on the first reading from Acts which recounts the first steps of the Church which, after Pentecost, went out to the “outskirts of faith” to proclaim the Gospel. The Pope noted that the Holy Spirit did two things: “first it pushed” and created “problems” and then “fostered harmony within the Church.” In Jerusalem, there were many opinions among the first disciples on whether to welcome Gentiles into the Church. There were those who said “no” to any agreement, and instead those who were open:
“There was a ‘No’ Church that said, ‘you cannot; no, no, you must not’ and a ‘Yes’ Church that said, ‘but … let’s think about it, let’s be open to this, the Spirit is opening the door to us ‘. The Holy Spirit had yet to perform his second task: to foster harmony among these positions, the harmony of the Church, among them in Jerusalem, and between them and the pagans. He always does a nice job, the Holy Spirit, throughout history. And when we do not let Him work, the divisions in the Church begin, the sects, all of these things … because we are closed to the truth of the Spirit. “
But what then is the key word in this dispute in the early Church? Pope Francis recalled the inspired words of James, Bishop of Jerusalem, who emphasized that we should not impose a yoke on the neck of the disciples that the same fathers were not able to carry:
“When the service of the Lord becomes so a heavy yoke, the doors of the Christian communities are closed: no one wants to come to the Lord. Instead, we believe that through the grace of the Lord Jesus we are saved. First this joy of the charism of proclaiming the grace, then let us see what we can do. This word, yoke, comes to my heart, comes to mind”.
The Pope then reflected on what it means to carry a yoke today in the Church. Jesus asks all of us to remain in his love. It is from this very love that the observance of his commandments is born. This, he reiterated, is “the Christian community that says yes”. This love, said the Pope, leads us to be faithful to the Lord” … “I will not do this or that because I love the Lord”:
“A community of’ yes’ and ‘no’ are a result of this’ yes’. We ask the Lord that the Holy Spirit help us always to become a community of love, of love for Jesus who loved us so much. A community of this ‘yes’. And from this ‘yes’ the commandments are fulfilled. A community of open doors. And it defends us from the temptation to become perhaps Puritans, in the etymological sense of the word, to seek a para-evangelical purity, from being a community of ‘no’. Because Jesus ask us first for love, love for Him, and to remain in His love. “
Pope Francis concluded: this is “when a Christian community lives in love, confesses its sins, worships the Lord, forgives offenses, is charitable towards others and manifests love” and thus “feels the obligation of fidelity to the Lord to observe the commandments.” (A Robber Church that says ‘Yes.” That “robber church” title is in tribute to the late +Mr. Patrick Henry Omlor, R.I.P.)
First, the dispute that prompted the Council of Jerusalem did not revolve around whether to admit Gentiles to the Faith. As noted above, the dispute centered on whether Gentile converts had to undergo Jewish ritual circumcision to be baptized. There was no thought of excluding the Gentiles because they were pagans, only a question as to whether it was necessary to receive circumcision in order to be baptized and thus gain admission to the Catholic Church:
 And some coming down from Judea, taught the brethren: That except you be circumcised after the manner of Moses, you cannot be saved.  And when Paul and Barnabas had no small contest with them, they determined that Paul and Barnabas, and certain others of the other side, should go up to the apostles and priests to Jerusalem about this question.  They therefore being brought on their way by the church, passed through Phenice, and Samaria, relating the conversion of the Gentiles; and they caused great joy to all the brethren.  And when they were come to Jerusalem, they were received by the church, and by the apostles and ancients, declaring how great things God had done with them.  But there arose some of the sect of the Pharisees that believed, saying: They must be circumcised, and be commanded to observe the law of Moses.
 And the apostles and ancients assembled to consider of this matter.  And when there had been much disputing, Peter, rising up, said to them: Men, brethren, you know, that in former days God made choice among us, that by my mouth the Gentiles should hear the word of the gospel, and believe.  And God, who knoweth the hearts, gave testimony, giving unto them the Holy Ghost, as well as to us;  And put no difference between us and them, purifying their hearts by faith.  Now therefore, why tempt you God to put a yoke upon the necks of the disciples, which neither our fathers nor we have been able to bear?
 But by the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, we believe to be saved, in like manner as they also.  And all the multitude held their peace; and they heard Barnabas and Paul telling what great signs and wonders God had wrought among the Gentiles by them.  And after they had held their peace, James answered, saying: Men, brethren, hear me.  Simon hath related how God first visited to take of the Gentiles a people to his name. . . .
 For it hath seemed good to the Holy Ghost and to us, to lay no further burden upon you than these necessary things:  That you abstain from things sacrificed to idols, and from blood, and from things strangled, and from fornication; from which things keeping yourselves, you shall do well. Fare ye well.  They therefore being dismissed, went down to Antioch; and gathering together the multitude, delivered the epistle. (Acts 15: 1-14; 28-30.)
(Bishop Challoner commented as follows in his Douay-Rheims Bible on the prohibition on eating blood and things strangled: “From blood, and from things strangled: The use of these things, though of their own nature indifferent, was here prohibited, to bring the Jews more easily to admit of the society of the Gentiles; and to exercise the latter in obedience. But this prohibition was but temporary, and has long since ceased to oblige; more especially in the western churches.”)
This is a little different that the construction on it given by Jorge Mario Bergoglios, who was yet again attempting to equate today’s traditional Catholics with the Pharisees, the party of exclusion and “no.”
Second, far from demonstrating the existence of a “no church,” this account provided us by Saint Luke in the Acts of the Apostles has been used by Holy Mother Church from time immemorial as one of the proofs that the Sacred Deposit of Faith consists of both Sacred Scripture and the unwritten teaching of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ that constitutes Sacred or Apostolic Tradition. The Council of Jerusalem proves this as well as being a death-knell to the belief that the Mosaic Law, which was obliterated and superseded when Our Lord breathed His last on the wood of the Holy Cross and the curtain in the Temple was torn in two from top to bottom as the earth shook.
Third, Jorge Mario Bergoglio/Francis would like us to believe that decision reached in the Council of Jerusalem was the result of the synthesis between the “yes church” and the “no church.” This is madness. It also also blasphemy against the Third Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, God the Holy Ghost, Who directed Saint James the Lesser, the first Bishop of Jerusalem, to decree as he did.
Then again, the counterfeit church of conciliarism is the true “no church” as it believes in a “Holy Spirit” who is capable of “changing his mind” according the circumstances of the times in which men live, one of the fundamental Lincoln Log building bogs of conciliarism, a place where it can be said that there is “justification by revolution alone.”
Here is a little news flash for Jorge Mario Bergoglio and his band of conciliar revolutionaries: God does say “no” to us. He has included explicit prohibitions in eight of the Ten Commandments. Each of the Ten Commandments contain implicit prohibitions that have been explicated by Holy Mother Church, she who is the sole repository and infallible explicator of their meaning. And God does say “no” to those who persist in mortal sins, including those of apostasy, to the point of their dying breath.
May 8, 2013: Ding Dong School Is In Session
Jorge Mario Bergoglio continued to use his Ding Dong School of Apostasy at the Casa Santa Marta to spread his revolutionary propaganda that come straight out of a 1970s Jesuit homiletic guide. It was on May 8, 2013, that Jorge told us for the first of many times that “evangelizing is not proselytizing.”
It is probably best to “frame” the screed below by using the same “Miss Frances” approach that I used ten months ago in Francis Takes to Ding School of Apostasy:
“Now, boys and girls, this is very similar to what a man who used to host Ding Dong School a long, long time before me, a man we can call Uncle Charlie [Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II), said while speaking to those nice, peace loving people who follow the teaching of a rolly-poly fat man by the name of Buddha who lived a long, long time ago, back in 1995, and those who follow the great religion of Hinduism and those who are followers of the lover of peace-loving prophet named Mohammed as he spoke in Sri Lanka, a little bitty island nation in a far, far away world of adventure and mystery called Asia–that is the largest piece of land in the world, boys and girls–just below the great, great country of India, a land where many people hold cows as sacred and thus do not eat fat, thick, juicy hamburgers the way you and I do”:
(Vatican Radio) Evangelization is not proselytizing. This was the focus of Pope Francis’ remarks to faithful gathered for Mass on Wednesday morning in the Chapel of the Domus Sanctae Marthae residence in the Vatican. The Pope reiterated that the Christian who wants to proclaim the Gospel must dialogue with everyone, knowing that no one owns the truth, because the truth is received by the encounter with Jesus.
Pope Francis stressed the courageous attitude of Paul St Paul at the Areopagus, when, in speaking to the Athenian crowd, he sought to build bridges to proclaim the Gospel. The Pope called Paul’s attitude one that “seeks dialogue” and is “closer to the heart” of the listener. The Pope said that this is the reason why St Paul was a real pontifex: a “builder of bridges” and not of walls. The Pope went on to say that this makes us think of the attitude that a Christian ought always to have.
“A Christian,” said Pope Francis, “must proclaim Jesus Christ in such a way that He be accepted: received, not refused – and Paul knows that he has to sow the Gospel message. He knows that the proclamation of Jesus Christ is not easy, but that it does not depend on him. He must do everything possible, but the proclamation of Jesus Christ, the proclamation of the truth, depends on the Holy Spirit. Jesus tells us in today’s Gospel: ‘When He shall come, the Spirit of truth, shall guide you into all the truth.’ Paul does not say to the Athenians: ‘This is the encyclopedia of truth. Study this and you have the truth, the truth.’ No! The truth does not enter into an encyclopedia. The truth is an encounter – it is a meeting with Supreme Truth: Jesus, the great truth. No one owns the truth. The we receive the truth when we meet [it].
But why did Paul act as he did? First, the Pope said, because “this is the way” of Jesus who “spoke with everyone” with sinners, publicans, teachers of the law. Paul, therefore, “follows the attitude of Jesus”:
“The Christian who would bring the Gospel must go down this road: [must] listen to everyone! But now is a good time in the life of the Church: the last 50 or 60 years have been a good time – for I remember when as a child one would hear in Catholic families, in my family, ‘No, we cannot go to their house, because they are not married in the Church, eh!’. It was as an exclusion. No, you could not go! Neither could we go to [the houses of] socialists or atheists. Now, thank God, people do not says such things, right? [Such an attitude] was a defense of the faith, but it was one of walls: the LORD made bridges. First: Paul has this attitude, because it was the attitude of Jesus. Second, Paul is aware that he must evangelize, not proselytize.
Citing his predecessor, Pope Benedict, Francis went on to say that the Church “does not grow by means of proselytizing,” but “by attraction, by witnessing, by preaching,” and Paul had this attitude: proclamation does not make proselytization – and he succeeds, because, “he did not doubt his Lord.” The Pope warned that, “Christians who are afraid to build bridges and prefer to build walls are Christians who are not sure of their faith, not sure of Jesus Christ.” The Pope exhorted Christians to do as Paul did and begin to “build bridges and to move forward”:
“Paul teaches us this journey of evangelization, because Jesus did, because he is well aware that evangelization is not proselytizing: it is because he is sure of Jesus Christ and does not need to justify himself [or] to seek reasons to justify himself. When the Church loses this apostolic courage, she becomes a stalled Church, a tidy Church a nice, a Church that is nice to look at, but that is without fertility, because she has lost the courage to go to the outskirts, where there are many people who are victims of idolatry, worldliness of weak thought, [of] so many things. Let us today ask St Paul to give us this apostolic courage, this spiritual fervor, so that we might be confident. ‘But Father,’ [you might say], ‘we might make mistakes…’ … ‘[Well, what of it,’ I might respond], ‘Get on with you: if you make a mistake, you get up and go forward: that is the way. Those who do not walk in order not to err, make a the more serious mistake. (Miss Frances at Wednesday Mass: build bridges, not walls.)
This was, of course, very similar to what the soon-to-be-“canonized” Karol Wojtyla/John Paul II said in Sri Lanka on January 21, 1995:
1. I am very pleased to have this opportunity during my visit to Sri Lanka to meet representatives of the various religions which have lived together in harmony for a very long time on this Island: especially Buddhism, present for over two thousand years, Hinduism, also of very long standing, along with Islam and Christianity. This simultaneous presence of great religious traditions is a source of enrichment for Sri Lankan society. At the same time it is a challenge to believers and especially to religious leaders, to ensure that religion itself always remains a force for harmony and peace. On the occasion of my Pastoral Visit to the Catholics of Sri Lanka, I wish to reaffirm the Church’s, and my own, deep and abiding respect for the spiritual and cultural values of which you are the guardians.
Especially since the Second Vatican Council, the Catholic Church has been fully committed to pursuing the path of dialogue and cooperation with the members of other religions. Interreligious dialogue is a precious means by which the followers of the various religions discover shared points of contact in the spiritual life, while acknowledging the differences which exist between them. The Church respects the freedom of individuals to seek the truth and to embrace it according to the dictates of conscience, and in this light she firmly rejects proselytism and the use of unethical means to gain conversions. (Meeting with representatives of other religions (January 21, 1995)
This is what I wrote in Francis Takes Us To Ding Dong School Of Apostasy ten months go now:
“No, boys and girls, we cannot do what Saint Francis Xavier did in seeking converts in India in the Sixteenth Century. We must speak to others in what we call ‘dialogue’–that’s a conversation, children, where you say one thing and someone else says another and we learn from one another about the world of truth that opens up for us when we encounter Our Lord–rather than threatening them with a know-it-all attitude of ‘I know more than you do and you better convert because I own the truth.’ Faith, you see, boys and girls, comes from within inside each one of us. You don’t want to scare someone by telling them that you have ‘the’ truth. Other people must encounter Our Lord from within themselves.”
And thus it goes whenever the Ding Dong School of Apostasy is in session at the Casa Santa Marta.
Today is Ember Saturday in the First Week of Lent. We must be about the business of prayer, fasting, mortification, almsgiving and penance, entrusting all of our efforts to serve Christ the King through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary, especially by means of her Most Holy Rosary.
