The counterfeit church of conciliarism is falling victim to its own falsehoods as the Catholics who are as of yet attached to its structures in the belief that they are “fighting from within” the Catholic Church try to save that which is false from collapsing.
All of the efforts, no matter how noble and well-intentioned, to save various historic churches where God is offended by the staging of the Protestant and Judeo-Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical service are doomed to failure. Even temporary reprieves, which are issued by conciliar authorities from time to time, do not last long. Moreover, to what avail is it to save historic church buildings when the true Catholic Faith is not to be found there and when the conciliar authorities are not interested in saving the parishes in whose boundaries they exist by seeking converts from the ranks of the non-Catholics who have displaced Catholics as the predominant part of these parishes’ population?
Well-meaning efforts to “save” the counterfeit church of conciliarism from the natural process of decadence that must occur within any false religion are very misguided as there is no such thing as “partial-credit” Catholicism.
The counterfeit church of conciliarism teaches that the meaning of dogmatic truth can change from time to time as it is said to be impossible for human language to convey with precision and stability the many-varied aspects of it. The Catholic Church has solemnly anathematized such a concept.
The counterfeit church of conciliarism teaches that the “Church of Christ” subsists in the Catholic Church. The Catholic Church teaches that she is the only and only Church of Christ.
The counterfeit church of conciliarism teaches that “inter-religious prayer” is the path to “peace” between men and among nations. The Catholic Church forbids such prayer as offensive to God, Who has appointed her as the sole means for promoting His greater honor and glory and of the sanctification of the faithful.
The counterfeit church of conciliarism teaches that the Old Covenant has never been revoked. The Catholic Church teaches that it has.
The counterfeit church of conciliarism teaches that adherents of false religions have a “right” from God Himself to propagate their false beliefs in society. The Catholic Church has condemned “religious liberty” as a “monstrous right” (Pope Pius VI, (Pope Pius VI, Brief Quod aliquantum, March 10, 1791; Religious Liberty, a “Monstrous Right“) and as a heresy (Pope Pius VII, Post Tam Diurturnas, April 29, 1714) and as “insanity” (Pope Gregory XVI, Mirari Vos, August 15, 1832) and as “injurious babbling” that would result in the pursuit of material pleasures as the chief purpose of human existence (Pope Pius IX, Quanta Cura, December 8, 1864.)
The counterfeit church of conciliarism teaches that “separation of church and state” is beneficial to men and their nations. The Catholic Church has condemned such an arrangement. Pope Saint Pius X said that the thesis of “separation of Church and State is a thesis absolutely false, reminding us that the Sovereign Pontiffs had never ceased to condemn it as circumstances required them to do so (Pope Saint Pius X, Vehementer Nos, February 11, 1906.)
Well-meaning efforts to “save” the counterfeit church of conciliarism must always result in failure as this false church is only suffering from continuing to suffer the fate of its sister false church, the Anglican sect, from a fate of declining church attendance, loss of belief in the tenets of the Apostles Creed, agnosticism, popular support for every moral evil imaginable in the name of “compassion” and “mercy” and “tolerance” and “diversity.” That which it is false of its nature can never be “willed” into being good and pleasing to God.
Holy Mother Church is in the catacombs again during this time of her Mystical Burial just as she was before the Edict of Milan in 313 A.D. Most of her great churches and cathedrals were built after that edict, symbolizing Holy Mother Church’s ascent from the underground into the open. The situation is reversed today as the remnant Catholic Church has gone underground today while her structures are in the hands of apostates whose false beliefs have expelled them from her maternal bosom. And it may very well be the case that most of our formerly Catholic church buildings that do not get auctioned off or sold or torn down by the conciliar revolutionaries will be torn down by the caesars themselves. Anyone who does not realize that era of real, bloody persecutions sponsored by the state authorities in supposedly “civilized nations” is right around the corner is not thinking too clearly.
As has been noted on this site in the past, that “progress” can be made to “save” the counterfeit church of concilairism from the natural fruit of its own decadence will be condemned to the fate of the mythical Sisyphus, who had to spend eternity perpetually trying to roll a huge boulder up a hill, only to have it roll down on him time and time again. Each new crisis engendered by the words and actions of the conciliar revolutionaries brings its own “burst of energy” from well-meaning Catholics, who believe that “Rome” is going to “listen” to the “people” sooner or later. The reality, however, is this: (a) most Catholics in the world support the conciliar revolution completely; and (b) “Rome” is the seat of apostasy at this time.
Remember, there were several celebrated cases of Japanese Imperial Army holdouts in The Philippines who holed up, principally on the Island of Mindanao, for over thirty yeas following the Japanese Empire’s surrender August 15, 1945 (the formal surrender was signed on September 2, 1945).
This is quite pertinent as one considers the efforts Catholics yet attached to the structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism to “hold out” themselves in various outposts in order to do “battle” for the Faith against some conciliar revolutionary “priest” who has been installed as a pastor by a conciliar “bishop” to undo the work of a validly ordained priest who tried to hold back the floodgates of the revolution as best he could with the equipment that had been given to him. As a now retired–and battle scarred–combatant in these battles, both as an activist and as one engaged in advocacy journalism, I can report that these battles, although stemming from the highest of motives to help Holy Mother Church, are indeed the equivalent of taking pot shots at “enemy targets” from a jungle tree on Mindanao. The “enemy” has won. The war is over. The battles are useless.
To be sure, the process of decadence has accelerated in the past four hundred forty-six days since the “election” of layman Jorge Mario Bergoglio to be the head of the counterfeit church of conciliarism. Bergoglio, however, is merely scraping away whatever remaining trappings of recognizable Catholicism remains in his false church, eagerly embracing almost everything that “conservative” and “traditionally-minded” Catholics in the conciliar structures have fought against or mocked time and time again.
Case-in-point: Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s consistent embrace of the so-called “Catholic Charismatic Movement,” capped by his appearance yesterday, Sunday, June 1, 2014, Sunday within the Octave of the Ascension and the Commemoration of Saint Angela Merici, at the public display of emotionalism and irrationality that passes for a gathering of such “spirit-filled” people at Rome’s Olympic Stadium.
Although a transcript of the false “pontiff’s” remarks is not available now, there is a report on the Vatican Insider website from which a few comments can be offered:
“At first I thought Renewal was a samba school,” the Pope joked and the whole stadium roared with laughter. Then he warned: “When someone thinks they are important, that’s when the plague hits.” Finally, he kneeled down as faithful prayed at the end of his speech, asking the Lord to bless him, just as Francis had asked of them to do straight after his election on 13 March 2013, from the central Loggia of St. Peter’s Basilica.
“Someone is missing here, possibly the most important people: grandparents. They are the guarantors of our faith.” Francis’ words totally threw the organisers of the Charismatic Renewal Convocation (Renewal in the Spirit – RNS), who only expected four people to speak at today’s meeting at the Olympic stadium: a priest, a young boy, a married couple and a disabled person.
“Like good wine, the elderly have freedom given to them by the Holy Spirit,” the Pope said, recalling the presentation of Jesus in the Temple, where he met two elderly people, Simeon and the prophetess Anna. “The elderly are the Church’s wisdom and yet we cast them aside,” the Pope said. That elderly lady, Anna, canonized “gossip” because instead of gossiping, she went around saying that the Saviour had come. Grandmothers and grandfathers are our wisdom and strength.” “May the Lord always give us elderly people who pass onto us the memory and wisdom of the Church and the sense of joy with which Simeon and Anna greeted promises from afar,” Francis said.
He asked the thousands of priests gathered to “be close to the people and to God.” “Lord, look at your people who await the Holy Spirit; look at the young; look at the families; look at children; look at the sick; look at priests; at the consecrated men and women; look at us bishops. Look at everyone and grant us that holy inebriation, the inebriation of the Spirit, which allows us to speak in all languages, the languages of charity, always standing by the side of those brothers and sisters who need us. Teach us not to fight over power, teach us to be humble, to love the Church more than our party, to receive the Spirit, Lord send your Spirit upon us.”
After recalling the masses he celebrated in Buenos Aires with RNS, the Pope said: “Thank you. I feel at home with you.” “Married couples are sinners just like everyone else, but they want to continue with love, in all its fecundity. They continue in the faith, bearing children.” This was Francis’ response to the words pronounced by a young bride who greeted Francis on behalf of all families. “Let us pray to the Lord and ask him to protect the family in the crisis with which the devil wants to destroy it,” the Pope said. “Families are the domestic church where Jesus grows in the love of a married couple, in the lives of their children. This is why the devil attacks the family so much,” Francis explained. The devil doesn’t want it and tries to destroy it. The devil tries to make love disappear from there.”
Francis crossed a section of the stadium pitch on foot to get to the stage. He was accompanied by the president of RNS, Salvatore Martinez and the Regent of the Papal Household, Fr. Leonardo Sapienza. Some of the delegates who stood along the course which had been marked out for the Pope, shook his hand. In the meantime, the crowds cheered, sang and called out Francis’ name. In his brief greeting to the Pope, Martinez reminded faithful that Francis wanted them to call out Jesus’ name, not his.
Martinez started singing “Jesus is Lord” in Spanish and Francis joined in. “Holy Father,” RNS’ president continued, “clearly there are no football teams here today, no Roma, no Lazio; our coach is the Holy Spirit and you are our captain, you are the one proposing the team strategy: if we send Jesus onto the pitch, we’ll win. Everyone will win, above all the sick.” “You kept your word when we said that after thirty six years we wanted to move our Convocation from Rimini to Rome and you said to us: “I’ll come”,” Martinez said to Francis. But keeping our word meant asking for a miracle of love: 1300 volunteers worked to get the stadium ready last night.” The crowds exploded into joyful cheering at these words and Martinez continued: “The great gift is the unity which will be the sign of our credibility. We were born with Paul VI, we grew up and matured with John Paul II and now here we are with you. Pentecost is not some red number in the calendar. This is an open-air cenacle. Pray for us and over us.” (Babbling Jorge Appears With Those Who Babble.)
What does Jorge Mario Bergoglio mean by “love” in families?
He means “acceptance” of the “diversity” that exists within families today without any kind of judgmental attitudes.
Isn’t it great that Jorge says the devil is trying to destroy families?
The adversary is clever. He will use his own minions, of which Jorge, who hid his pectoral cross as week ago today when paying a “courtesy” call upon two Talmudic rabbis who hate the Cross of the Divine Redeemer, Christ the King (see On the Road to Gehenna with Jorge, Abe and Omar, part three), is one of the most useful, to denounce him even though they do his bidding for him constantly.
To wit, the conciliar authorities have helped to destroy the integrity of the family by their endorsement of “natural family planning” (see Forty-Three Years After Humanae Vitae, Always Trying To Find A Way and Planting Seeds of Revolutionary Change), “Saint John Paul II’s” “theology of the body,” explicit classroom instruction in matters pertaining to the Sixth and Ninth Commandments, de facto endorsement of contraception by many conciliar priests and presbyters in the confessional and from the pulpit and in their writings and the upcoming de facto endorsement of the “internal forum” solution to dispense even with formalities of the conciliar nullity process to permit Catholics who are divorced and civilly remarried without a conciliar decree of marital nullity receive what purports to be Holy Communion in the Protestant and Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical service (see Jorge Cooks the Books).
Many of the lords of conciliarism, at least on the local levels without interference from “Rome,” have promoted the agenda of the Homosexual Collective up to and including baptizing the children of lesbian “couples,” promoting perverted works of art, reaffirming those steeped in lives of unrepentant sins against nature by means of “support” groups, using “gay speak” and designing churches to make those inclined to such sins feel “at home,” and corrupting the young with “educational” programs that have been designed to catechize them about the necessity of “diversity” and “tolerance.”
Yes, the devil is very much at work against the family, and he has had willing partners among the lords of conciliarism.
Then again, Pentecostalism is evil as the gift of tongues has nothing to do with uttering unintelligible sounds and waving one’s harms or falling prone on the ground. The gift of tongues is what Saint Peter exercised on the first Pentecost Sunday as he spoke in Aramaic but was able to be understand by his audience in each of their own native languages. That’s the gift of tongues, not the “Heebie-geebies, the spirits are about to speak” emotionalism of the so-called “Catholic Charismatic Renewal.”
Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s actual address, which become available today, Monday, June 2, 2014 (Monday within the Octave of the Ascension and the Commemoration of Saints Marcellianus, Peter and Erasmus), demonstrates his complete endorsement of a “spirit” who leads people as he wills without regard to the truths of the Catholic Faith, of which God the Holy Ghost in the infallible guarantor:
Vatican City, 2 June 2014 (VIS) – Yesterday afternoon fifty-two thousand people gathered for the National Convocation of “Renewal in the Spirit”, from 55 countries, applauded Pope Francis’ entry into the Olympic Stadium in Rome where he joined in with the chorus in Spanish of “Vive Jesus, el Senor”, a hymn that the bishop of Rome said he enjoyed greatly when he celebrated Mass in the cathedral of Buenos Aires with members of this movement. Two bodies for the coordination of Catholic Charismatic Renewal throughout the world: ICCRS (International Catholic Charismatic Renewal Services) and CFCCCF (Catholic Fraternity of Charismatic Covenant Communities and Fellowships).
The Pope answered the questions posed to him by priests, young people, families, the sick and the elderly, asking the first among them to remain close to Christ and to his faithful, and warning the second not to keep their youth “locked away in a safe” but rather to “bet on great things”. He reminded families of their roles as a domestic church, and commented that the sick imitate Jesus in the difficult moments of life, and that the elderly are the wisdom and memory of the Church. Finally, he prayed that God might grant to all the “holy intoxication of the Spirit, that enables us to speak many languages, the languages of charity, always close to those brothers and sisters who need us. Teach us not to fight between ourselves over a little more power, … teach us to increasingly love the Church that is our ‘team’, and to keep our hearts open to receive the Holy Spirit”.
In his address, he affirmed that Renewal in the Spirit is “a great force in the service of the proclamation of the Gospel in the joy of the Holy Spirit. … In the early times, it was said that you always carried a Bible with you, a New Testament. … If not, return to this first love, always carry the Word of God with you, in your pocket, in your bag!”
He urged them never to lose the freedom that the Holy Spirit gives us, warning them of the danger of “excessive organisation”. “Yes, you need organisation, but do not lose the grace of letting God be God!”. He also warned them of the danger of becoming “controllers” of God’s grace, administrators of race who decide who may receive the prayer of effusion or baptism in the Spirit, and who instead may not. “If any of you do this, I beg you, do not do this any more. You are dispensers of God’s grace, not controllers!”, he underlined.
“Evangelisation, spiritual ecumenism, attention to the poor and needy and welcome to the marginalised, and all on the basis of adoration; the foundation for renewal is adoring God”: thus Pope Francis defined the path of Renewal in the Spirit, to explain the future direction he hoped they would take.
“First of all”, he said, “conversion to the love of Jesus, that changes life and makes a Christian a witness to God’s love. I hope that you will share with all in the Church the grace of Baptism in the Holy Spirit. I expect from you an evangelisation with the Word of God that proclaims that Jesus lives and loves all humankind. May you give witness of spiritual ecumenism with all those brothers and sisters of other Churches and Christian communities who believe in Jesus as the Lord and Saviour. May you remain united in the love that the Lord Jesus asks of all for all mankind, and in prayer to the Holy Spirit to reach this unity, necessary for evangelisation in the name of Jesus. Be close to the poor and needy to touch in their flesh the wounded flesh of Jesus. Seek unity in Renewal because unity comes from the Holy Spirit and is born of the unity of the Trinity. Where does division come from? The devil! Division comes from the devil. Flee from internal struggles, please!”.
In conclusion, Francis called upon them to “Go forth onto the streets and evangelise, proclaim the Gospel. Remember that the Church was born to go forth, that morning of Pentecost. … Let yourselves be guided by the Holy Spirit, with that same freedom. And please, do not cage the Holy Spirit! With freedom!”. (Jorge: Do Not “Cage” My False Spirit.)
“Cage the ‘Holy Spirit'”?
Once again, nothing is new under Jorge’s sun, such as it is.
Here is what he said on June 13, 2013, the Feast of Saint Anthony of Padua:
Pope Francis addressed the two extremes that threaten the progress of the Church at mass Wednesday morning: Fear of any change to the status quo which stops the Church moving forward and a tendency to follow every change dictated by today’s culture, which he described as an ‘adolescent progressivism’ that risks ‘de-railing’ believers.
Instead, the way forward for the Church, as indicated by the Holy Spirit, is that of “freedom,” in continuously discerning God’s will and, he added, rules which kill charisms should not be imposed. The problem and temptation, said Pope Francis, is that we cannot control the Holy Spirit.. Emer McCarthy reports: RealAudioMP3
The Pope’s homily centered around Jesus’ words in the Gospel of the day, (MT 5:17) ” Do not think that I have come to abolish the law or the prophets.” He said this Gospel passage which follows the Beatitudes is “an expression of the new law” which is more demanding than that of Moses. This law, the Pope added, is “the fruit of the Covenant” and cannot be understood without it. “This Alliance, this law is sacred because it brought the people to God.” Pope Francis likened the “maturity of this law” to a ” bursting bud that reveals a flower.” Jesus “is the expression of the maturity of the law”. The Pope noted that Paul speaks of two times “without breaking continuity” between the law of history and the law of the Spirit:
“The hour of the law’s fulfillment, is when the law reaches its maturity when it becomes the law of the Spirit. Moving forward on this road is somewhat risky, but it is the only road to maturity, to leave behind the times in which we are not mature. Part of the law’s journey to maturity, which comes with preaching Jesus, always involves fear; fear of the freedom that the Spirit gives us. The law of the Spirit makes us free! This freedom frightens us a little, because we are afraid we will confuse the freedom of the Spirit with human freedom. “
Pope Francis continued, the law of the Spirit, “takes us on a path of continuous discernment to do the will of God” and this can frighten us. The Pope warned that this fear “brings two temptations with it.” The first, is to “go backwards” to say that “it’s possible up to this point, but impossible beyond this point” which ends up becoming “let’s stay here”. This, he warned, “is the temptation of fear of freedom, fear of the Holy Spirit.” A fear that “it is better to play it safe.” Pope Francis then told a story about a superior general who, in the 1930’s, went around compiling a list of regulations for his religious, “a work that took years.” Then he travelled to Rome to meet a Benedictine abbot, who, upon hearing all he had done, replied that in doing so he “had killed his Congregation’s charism”, “he had killed its freedom” since “this charism bears fruit in freedom and he had stopped the charism”.
“This is the temptation to go backwards, because we are ‘safer’ going back: but total security is in the Holy Spirit that brings you forward, which gives us this trust – as Paul says – which is more demanding because Jesus tells us: “Amen, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not the smallest letter or the smallest part of a letter will pass from the law”. It is more demanding! But it does not give us that human security. We cannot control the Holy Spirit: that is the problem! This is a temptation.”
Pope Francis noted that there is another temptation: that of “adolescent progressivism”, that de-rails us. This temptation lies in seeing a culture and “not detaching ourselves from it”.
“We take the values of this culture a little bit from here, a little bit from there , … They want to make this law? Alright let’s go ahead and make this law. Let’s broaden the boundaries here a little. In the end, let me tell you, this is not true progress. It is adolescent progressivism: just like teenagers who in their enthusiasm want to have everything and in the end? You slip up … It’s like when the road is covered in ice and the car slips and go off track… This is the other temptation at the moment! We, at this moment in the history of the Church, we cannot go backwards or go off the track! “
Pope Francis concluded : the track “is that of freedom in the Holy Spirit that makes us free, in continuous discernment of God’s will to move forward on this path, without going back and without going off-track”. Let us ask the Lord for “the grace that the Holy Spirit gives us to go forward.”
Mass was concelebrated by Cardinal João Braz de Aviz, accompanied by priests, religious and lay staff of the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life. (Universal Public Face of Apostasy At Abominable Liturgical Service That Pleases Only The Devil: True progress is in trusting the Spirit.)
It is not to “cage” God the Holy Ghost to remain faithful to everything that Our Lord has revealed to us exclusively through His Catholic Church “according to the same dogma, the same sense, the same acceptation” (cf. Pope Saint Pius X, Pascendi Dominci Gregis, September 8, 1907).
Bergoglio’s “freedom” is Protestant Pentecostalism. It is from the devil. It leads to Hell.
Thus it is that the entire so-called “Catholic Charismatic Renewal” is simply a manifestation of the diabolical phenomenon known as Protestant Pentecostalism, which is practiced with great fervor by the rabidly anti-Catholic Assemblies of God of which the disgraced “televangelist” Jimmy Swaggart was a “minister,” that does away with the Sacred Deposit of Faith and thus the very Divine Constitution of the Church that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ founded upon the Rock of Peter, the Pope, to substituted alleged individual and collective “inspirations” from the “spirit” for the immutable truths contained in the Sacred Scripture and Sacred (Apostolic) Tradition.
Pentecostalism has, of course, influenced the counterfeit church of conciliarism very directly through its allegedly Catholic variation, the so-called “Catholic Charismatic Renewal,” sometimes referred to as the “Charismatic Movement,” stressing the relationship of the “individual” to the “Holy Spirit,” Who could guide believers in individual, personal ways by direct inspiration rather than through the direction of a bishop or a priest, no less by the Magisterium of the true Church that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ founded upon the Rock of Peter, the Pope, the Catholic Church. Individuals can be “sanctified” directly by the “Holy Spirit” absent any reliance upon the Sacraments that Our Lord Himself instituted and entrusted exclusively to the Catholic Church for their valid administration according to her approved rites.
Pentecostalism is thus a false spirituality founded in emotionalism and religious indifferentism. It has been so from its inception. It remains so today, making of religious faith and practice a purely experiential reality that can never be understood or expressed intelligibly.
Pope Leo XIII was quite aware that this spirit of American “individualism” was infecting how Catholics in this country viewed Holy Mother Church, understanding quite correctly how this infection would spread over the course of time if the American bishops did nothing to check it by condemning it in no uncertain terms. This is one of the reasons that Pope Leo wrote his Apostolical Letter, Testem Benevolentiae Nostrae, January 22, 1899, to James Cardinal Gibbons, the Americanist Archbishop of Baltimore, Maryland, from October 3, 1877, to March 24, 1921. Pope Leo condemned the false spirit of Pentecostalism that he knew would undermine the integrity of the Catholic Faith over time:
Coming now to speak of the conclusions which have been deduced from the above opinions, and for them, we readily believe there was no thought of wrong or guile, yet the things themselves certainly merit some degree of suspicion. First, all external guidance is set aside for those souls who are striving after Christian perfection as being superfluous or indeed, not useful in any sense -the contention being that the Holy Spirit pours richer and more abundant graces than formerly upon the souls of the faithful, so that without human intervention He teaches and guides them by some hidden instinct of His own. Yet it is the sign of no small over-confidence to desire to measure and determine the mode of the Divine communication to mankind, since it wholly depends upon His own good pleasure, and He is a most generous dispenser ‘of his own gifts. “The Spirit breatheth whereso He listeth.” — John iii, 8.
“And to each one of us grace is given according to the measure of the giving of Christ.” — Eph. iv, 7.
And shall any one who recalls the history of the apostles, the faith of the nascent church, the trials and deaths of the martyrs and, above all, those olden times, so fruitful in saints-dare to measure our age with these, or affirm that they received less of the divine outpouring from the Spirit of Holiness? Not to dwell upon this point, there is no one who calls in question the truth that the Holy Spirit does work by a secret descent into the souls of the just and that He stirs them alike by warnings and impulses, since unless this were the case all outward defense and authority would be unavailing. “For if any persuades himself that he can give assent to saving, that is, to gospel truth when proclaimed, without any illumination of the Holy Spirit, who gives unto all sweetness both to assent and to hold, such an one is deceived by a heretical spirit.”-From the Second Council of Orange, Canon 7.
Moreover, as experience shows, these monitions and impulses of the Holy Spirit are for the most part felt through the medium of the aid and light of an external teaching authority. To quote St. Augustine. “He (the Holy Spirit) co-operates to the fruit gathered from the good trees, since He externally waters and cultivates them by the outward ministry of men, and yet of Himself bestows the inward increase.”-De Gratia Christi, Chapter xix. This, indeed, belongs to the ordinary law of God’s loving providence that as He has decreed that men for the most part shall be saved by the ministry also of men, so has He wished that those whom He calls to the higher planes of holiness should be led thereto by men; hence St. Chrysostom declares we are taught of God through the instrumentality of men.-Homily I in Inscrib. Altar. Of this a striking example is given us in the very first days of the Church.
For though Saul, intent upon blood and slaughter, had heard the voice of our Lord Himself and had asked, “What dost Thou wish me to do?” yet he was bidden to enter Damascus and search for Ananias. Acts ix: “Enter the city and it shall be there told to thee what thou must do.”
Nor can we leave out of consideration the truth that those who are striving after perfection, since by that fact they walk in no beaten or well-known path, are the most liable to stray, and hence have greater need than others of a teacher and guide. Such guidance has ever obtained in the Church; it has been the universal teaching of those who throughout the ages have been eminent for wisdom and sanctity-and hence to reject it would be to commit one’s self to a belief at once rash and dangerous.
A thorough consideration of this point, in the supposition that no exterior guide is granted such souls, will make us see the difficulty of locating or determining the direction and application of that more abundant influx of the Holy Spirit so greatly extolled by innovators. To practice virtue there is absolute need of the assistance of the Holy Spirit, yet we find those who are fond of novelty giving an unwarranted importance to the natural virtues, as though they better responded to the customs and necessities of the times and that having these as his outfit man becomes more ready to act and more strenuous in action. It is not easy to understand how persons possessed of Christian wisdom can either prefer natural to supernatural virtues or attribute to them a greater efficacy and fruitfulness. Can it be that nature conjoined with grace is weaker than when left to herself?
Can it be that those men illustrious for sanctity, whom the Church distinguishes and openly pays homage to, were deficient, came short in the order of nature and its endowments, because they excelled in Christian strength? And although it be allowed at times to wonder at acts worthy of admiration which are the outcome of natural virtue-is there anyone at all endowed simply with an outfit of natural virtue? Is there any one not tried by mental anxiety, and this in no light degree? Yet ever to master such, as also to preserve in its entirety the law of the natural order, requires an assistance from on high. These single notable acts to which we have alluded will frequently upon a closer investigation be found to exhibit the appearance rather than the reality of virtue. Grant that it is virtue, unless we would “run in vain” and be unmindful of that eternal bliss which a good God in his mercy has destined for us, of what avail are natural virtues unless seconded by the gift of divine grace? Hence St. Augustine well says: “Wonderful is the strength, and swift the course, but outside the true path.” For as the nature of man, owing to the primal fault, is inclined to evil and dishonor, yet by the help of grace is raised up, is borne along with a new greatness and strength, so, too, virtue, which is not the product of nature alone, but of grace also, is made fruitful unto everlasting life and takes on a more strong and abiding character. (Pope Leo XIII, Testem Benevolentiae Nostrae, January 22, 1899.)
In other words, Pentecostalists contend that one must open oneself up to the belief that there should be “liberty” within the Church to discuss “new” things in imitation of the falsehoods of the American founding itself. It is also to open oneself up to reject the hierarchical nature of the Church herself.
That is, a belief in American individualism and egalitarianism, each of which are false naturalistic principles having nothing to do with the Faith (the first individualist and egalitarian was Lucifer, after all), leads one down the path of the layman seeking equality in the sanctuary with the ordained priest, of the abolition of Communion rails, of standing for the reception of what purports to be Holy Communion, of the use of vulgar tongues, subject to all manner of change and misinterpretation and deconstruction and positivism, in the Sacred Liturgy, of the rejection of the magisterial authority of the Catholic Church as binding upon one’s conscience at all times and in all things. And the rejection of the magisterial authority of the Catholic Church leads one open to adopting Protestant Pentecostalism as the means by which one “knows” about God, deluding himself into thinking that God the Holy Ghost is leading him individually on a new path that deviates from the one prescribed by the Catholic Church. There is thus a direct path from Americanism to the “Catholic Charismatic Renewal” of conciliarism–in all of the other “movements” that have sprung up like weeds in the past forty-nine years since the close of the “Second” Vatican Council.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio has made it clear that the “spirit” does not want to return to the “formality” of the “past.”
Jorge Mario Bergoglio has made it clear that the “spirit” likes his clown liturgies.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio has made it clear that the “spirit” likes liturgies staged facing the people.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio has made it clear that the “spirit” just loves religious liberty and separation of Church and State even though both are responsible, proximately speaking, for the rise of so many socially accepted and institutionalized evils, including child euthanasia laws in Belgium (see Hitler Prevails After All).
Jorge Mario Bergoglio has made it clear that the “spirit” has led him to seek the blessings of Protestant Penecostalists and to coauthor a book with a pro-abortion, pro-perversity Talmudic rabbi.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio just loves to “move with the spirit,” who just kind of “blows with the times.”
Unfortunately for Jorge Mario Bergoglio, the “spirit by which he “moves” is diabolical, and it is thus a diabolical spirit that drives him to be obsessed about those who want to go back to a “past” where Catholics understood that God and His Holy Truths are immutable, an immutability that was reflected in the transcendent glory, permanence, beauty and universality of the Immemorial Mass of Tradition that Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ taught to the Apostles in all of its essential elements between his Resurrection on Easter Sunday and His Ascension to His Co-Equal and Co-Eternal Father’s right hand on Ascension Thursday.
Here is news for Jorge Mario Bergoglio: Only an evil spirit can inspire him to hide his pectoral cross in the presence of two Talmudic rabbis who hate the very instrument upon which the Divine Redeemer, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, offered Himself up to His Co-Eternal and Co-Equal God the Father in atonement for our sins.
Part two of this commentary will take a look at some of the future plans that Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s false “spirit” might have in store for a false church, the counterfeit church of conciliarism.
We must have recourse in this month of June to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus as His consecrated slaves through His Blessed Mother’s Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart. One of the ways that we can do do this by reciting the Litany of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus every day in reparation for the blasphemies, outrages, sacrileges, apostasies and heresies of the conciliar revolutionaries.
The Most Sacred Heart of Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ is consoled each time we pray His Most Blessed Mother’s Most Holy Rosary with care and fervor.
Entrust yourselves, therefore, to Our Lord’s Most Sacred Heart through the Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Remember that Our Lord won the graces for us to carry the crosses of the present moment with joy and gratitude, wanting us to beg Him for those graces as we intercede with the Mediatrix of All Graces, His own Most Blessed Mother.
