One of the things that struck me after posting part one, of this commentary on Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s latest interview is the total lack of originality on the part of those who have interviewed him. Every one of these interviews have gone over the same subject manner, noting a few exceptions here and there. What is the point of all of this except to feed the egos of the interviewers, who seem as oblivious to the content of Jorge’s other interviews as Bergoglio is to the content of actual Catholic doctrine, and to feed the false “pontiff’s” insatiable need to be in the public limelight?
A review of past interviews (see Francis Says ¡Viva la Revolución!, part three, Francis: Apostle of Antichrist, part one, Francis: Apostle of Antichrist, part two, Francis: Apostle of Antichrist, part three, Nothing Random About This, part one, Nothing Random About This, part two, Nothing Random About This, part three, Nothing Random About This, part four, Nothing Random About This, part five, Memo From Patrolman Ed Nicholson To Jorge Mario Bergoglio: SHUT UP!, part one, Memo From Patrolman Ed Nicholson to Jorge Mario Bergoglio: SHUT UP!, part two), Not Another Interview! and On the Road to Gehenna with Jorge, Abe and Omar, part four, the end, at last) will reveal that Jorge has said nothing new in them that he has not stated endlessly in his daily screeds at the Casa Santa Marta his general audience addresses, his “homilies” and speeches while traveling abroad and in his two manifestos of revolutionary action, Lumen Fidei, June 29, 2013, and Evangelii Gaudium, November 26, 2013. While Jorge loves to repeat himself in the manner of Dr. Frances Rappaport of the original Ding Dong School, whose name is now synonymous with his own pedantic style of speaking down to his listeners, it is nothing other than remarkable see how lazy journalists are these days as they ask questions that have been answered by their interviewees many times before.
Back to the interview (or as much of it as I can stomach until it is time for me to quit work for the night):
Poor and humble Church
“Poverty and humility are at the heart of the Gospel, and I say this in a theological sense, not sociological. You cannot understand the Gospel without poverty, which, however, should be distinguished from pauperism. I believe that Jesus wants bishops to be servants and not princes.” (Jorge Shoots the Breeze While “Resting”.)
Comment Number Six:
Jorge the Egalitarian strikes again.
Here is the most effective refutation of this Protestant and Judeo-Masonic anti-clerical egalitarianism:
It remains for Us now to say a few words about the Modernist as reformer. From all that has preceded, it is abundantly clear how great and how eager is the passion of such men for innovation. In all Catholicism there is absolutely nothing on which it does not fasten. They wish philosophy to be reformed, especially in the ecclesiastical seminaries. They wish the scholastic philosophy to be relegated to the history of philosophy and to be classed among absolute systems, and the young men to be taught modern philosophy which alone is true and suited to the times in which we live. They desire the reform of theology: rational theology is to have modern philosophy for its foundation, and positive theology is to be founded on the history of dogma. As for history, it must be written and taught only according to their methods and modern principles. Dogmas and their evolution, they affirm, are to be harmonized with science and history. In the Catechism no dogmas are to be inserted except those that have been reformed and are within the capacity of the people. Regarding worship, they say, the number of external devotions is to be reduced, and steps must be taken to prevent their further increase, though, indeed, some of the admirers of symbolism are disposed to be more indulgent on this head. They cry out that ecclesiastical government requires to be reformed in all its branches, but especially in its disciplinary and dogmatic departments They insist that both outwardly and inwardly it must be brought into harmony with the modern conscience which now wholly tends towards democracy; a share in ecclesiastical government should therefore be given to the lower ranks of the clergy and even to the laity and authority which is too much concentrated should be decentralized The Roman Congregations and especially the index and the Holy Office, must be likewise modified The ecclesiastical authority must alter its line of conduct in the social and political world; while keeping outside political organizations it must adapt itself to them in order to penetrate them with its spirit. With regard to morals, they adopt the principle of the Americanists, that the active virtues are more important than the passive, and are to be more encouraged in practice. They ask that the clergy should return to their primitive humility and poverty, and that in their ideas and action they should admit the principles of Modernism; and there are some who, gladly listening to the teaching of their Protestant masters, would desire the suppression of the celibacy of the clergy. What is there left in the Church which is not to be reformed by them and according to their principles? (Pope Saint Pius X, Pascendi Dominici Gregis, September 8, 1907.)
Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ is King. His true Vicars are thus Monarchs, not democrats, not egalitarians. Pope Saint Pius X was a true servant of the One Sheepfold of Christ the King. He always upheld the royal dignity of the Supreme Pontiff, never debasing it as Jorge the Vulgar and Visceral continues to do with his actions and his revolutionary propaganda.
Jorge Mario Bergoglio focuses on “his” love for “the people” and their love for “him.” While Catholics pray for a true pope, they revere his person not because of his personality but because he is the Vicar of Christ the King, Monarch. A visceral, egalitarian “democrat” such as Bergoglio is all focused on himself. Moreover, no one truly “loves” “the people” unless he wills their good, the ultimate expression of which is the salvation of their immortal souls as members of the Catholic Church who are ready at all times to meet Christ the King at the moment of their Particular Judgment by living and dying in a state of Sanctifying Grace.
Idolatry of money and wars
“It is proven that with leftover food we could feed people who are hungry. When you see photograph of starving children in different parts of the world, does your head bursts, you cannot understand it. I believe that we live in a global economic system that is not good. At the heart of the economic system there must be man, man and woman, and everything must be at the service of man. But instead we have put money in the center, the god of money. We have fallen into the sin of idolatry, the idolatry of money. The economy moves with the anxiety of having more and paradoxically fosters a culture of waste. Discarding the young when limiting the birth rate. We also discard the elderly because they are no longer needed, they do not produce, they are a passive class … And by discarding the young and the elderly, we discard a people’s future because young people pull forward with strength and because the elderly give us wisdom, they have the remembrance of this people, and must pass it on to the young. Now it is fashionable to discard young people with unemployment. I am very concerned about the unemployment rate of young people, which in some countries exceeds fifty percent. Someone told me that 75 million young Europeans aged under 25 are unemployed. It is a barbarism. We are discarding an entire generation to maintain an economic system that no longer holds, a system which, in order to survive, must fight wars, as great empires have always done. Since we cannot have a third world war, we fight regional wars. What does this mean? It means that they manufacture and sell weapons, and so the budgets of the idolatrous economies, the major worldwide economies that sacrifice man at the feet of the idol of money, obviously, are healed. This sole thought deprives us of the richness of diversity of thought and therefore of a dialogue between people. Proper globalization is wealth. Bad globalization cancels the differences. It is like a sphere, with all points equidistant from the center. An enriched globalization is like polyhedron, all united but each retaining its peculiarity, its wealth, its identity. And this is not happening“. (Jorge Shoots the Breeze While “Resting”.)
Comment Number Seven (or how to deal with anthropocentric insanity):
There are several points to be made in this answer, which is pretty identical to various allocutions that he has given and to some passages in Evangelii Gaudium, November 26, 2013,
First, Jorge Mario Bergoglio, true his false religion of the idolatry of man that is at the essence of concilarism, says that man must be at the center of a just economic system.
The true God of Divine Revelation must at the center of all that we do. A just economic system must be based on principles that flow from the Social Teaching of Holy Mother Church. It is only when Christ the King is at the center of all our activities, including those in the economic sphere, as men pursue the common temporal good in light of their Last End, the possession of the glory of the Beatific Vision of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost for all eternity in Heaven, that a truly just political, social and economic order can be structured and maintained.
There will always be injustice in the world. Greedy, selfish men will always seek to enrich themselves at the expense of others. It is only the right order of temporal affairs in light of eternity that men, vivified and fortified by Sanctifying Grace, can overcome vicious habits and seek to treat others as they would treat Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Himself.
Second, the entirety of the modern economic system whose ills have been decried time and time again by Jorge Mario Bergoglio is built upon a specific and categorical rejection of the Social Reign of Christ the King as It must be exercised by His Catholic Church.
As I am aware that some readers forget the specific content of what they read, here again is the late Dr. George O’Brien’s concise summary of whole the world of Judeo-Calvinist-Masonic capitalism that spawned socialism in response came into existence:
The thesis we have endeavoured to present in this essay is, that the two great dominating schools of modern economic thought have a common origin. The capitalist school, which, basing its position on the unfettered right of the individual to do what he will with his own, demands the restriction of government interference in economic and social affairs within the narrowest possible limits, and the socialist school, which, basing its position on the complete subordination of the individual to society, demands the socialization of all the means of production, if not all of wealth, face each other today as the only two solutions of the social question; they are bitterly hostile towards each other, and mutually intolerant and each is at the same weakened and provoked by the other. In one respect, and in one respect only, are they identical–they can both be shown to be the result of the Protestant Reformation.
We have seen the direct connection which exists between these modern schools of economic thought and their common ancestor. Capitalism found its roots in the intensely individualistic spirit of Protestantism, in the spread of anti-authoritative ideas from the realm of religion into the realm of political and social thought, and, above all, in the distinctive Calvinist doctrine of a successful and prosperous career being the outward and visible sign by which the regenerated might be known. Socialism, on the other hand, derived encouragement from the violations of established and prescriptive rights of which the Reformation afforded so many examples, from the growth of heretical sects tainted with Communism, and from the overthrow of the orthodox doctrine on original sin, which opened the way to the idea of the perfectibility of man through institutions. But, apart from these direct influences, there were others, indirect, but equally important. Both these great schools of economic thought are characterized by exaggerations and excesses; the one lays too great stress on the importance of the individual, and other on the importance of the community; they are both departures, in opposite directions, from the correct mean of reconciliation and of individual liberty with social solidarity. These excesses and exaggerations are the result of the free play of private judgment unguided by authority, and could not have occurred if Europe had continued to recognize an infallible central authority in ethical affairs.
The science of economics is the science of men’s relations with one another in the domain of acquiring and disposing of wealth, and is, therefore, like political science in another sphere, a branch of the science of ethics. In the Middle Ages, man’s ethical conduct, like his religious conduct, was under the supervision and guidance of a single authority, which claimed at the same time the right to define and to enforce its teaching. The machinery for enforcing the observance of medieval ethical teaching was of a singularly effective kind; pressure was brought to bear upon the conscience of the individual through the medium of compulsory periodical consultations with a trained moral adviser, who was empowered to enforce obedience to his advice by the most potent spiritual sanctions. In this way, the whole conduct of man in relation to his neighbours was placed under the immediate guidance of the universally received ethical preceptor, and a common standard of action was ensured throughout the Christian world in the all the affairs of life. All economic transactions in particular were subject to the jealous scrutiny of the individual’s spiritual director; and such matters as sales, loans, and so on, were considered reprehensible and punishable if not conducted in accordance with the Christian standards of commutative justice.
The whole of this elaborate system for the preservation of justice in the affairs of everyday life was shattered by the Reformation. The right of private judgment, which had first been asserted in matters of faith, rapidly spread into moral matters, and the attack on the dogmatic infallibility of the Church left Europe without an authority to which it could appeal on moral questions. The new Protestant churches were utterly unable to supply this want. The principle of private judgment on which they rested deprived them of any right to be listened to whenever they attempted to dictate moral precepts to their members, and henceforth the moral behaviour of the individual became a matter to be regulated by the promptings of his own conscience, or by such philosophical systems of ethics as he happened to approve. The secular state endeavoured to ensure that dishonesty amounting to actual theft or fraud should be kept in check, but this was a poor and ineffective substitute for the powerful weapon of the confessional. Authority having once broken down, it was but a single step from Protestantism to rationalism; and the way was opened to the development of all sorts of erroneous systems of morality. (Dr. George O’Brien, An Essay on the Economic Effects of the Reformation.)
Jorge Mario Bergoglio knows none of this, and it would scoff at it as so much nonsense if someone tried to explained this to him
Third, Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s euphemistic references to child-killing by chemical and surgical means and to the slaughter of the the elderly by means of euthanasia (the false “pontiff” does not understand the fact that that human beings of all ages are being killed in hospices in the name of “compassion” and in hospitals under the aegis of the medical industry’s manufactured money-making myth of “brain death”) never once refer to the fact that these killings are in violation of the binding precepts of the Fifth Commandment. There is, as has been pointed out and over again, absolutely no understanding of the simple fact that it is impossible to establish a just order in the world when men are at war with God by means of their unrepentant sins. And why is it that Jorge can quote numbers and percentages of those unemployed in Europe but never talks about the numbers of those killed by chemical and surgical means in their mothers’ wombs? (See Abortion Statistics and a scholarly article written in 1999 that includes a review of baby-killing methods, Numbers and Methods of Killing Babies.)
Then again, he is the greatest warrior against the true God of Divine Revelation on the face of this earth as he offend His greater honor, majesty and glory by committing apostate acts in violation of the First and Second Commandments and by spreading blasphemous heresies in a vulgar, coarse and demagogic manner as he tickles the itching ears of those who want to be reaffirmed in their sins.
Fourth, Bergoglio’s prescription for the madness of “globalization,” which is nothing other than a recycling of the shopworn ideology found in Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI’s Caritas in Veritate, June 29, 2009. The world does not need “globalism.” The world needs Catholicism.
You want an antidote?
You got it:
Here we have, founded by Catholics, an inter-denominational association that is to work for the reform of civilization, an undertaking which is above all religious in character; for there is no true civilization without a moral civilization, and no true moral civilization without the true religion: it is a proven truth, a historical fact. The new Sillonists cannot pretend that they are merely working on “the ground of practical realities” where differences of belief do not matter. Their leader is so conscious of the influence which the convictions of the mind have upon the result of the action, that he invites them, whatever religion they may belong to, “to provide on the ground of practical realities, the proof of the excellence of their personal convictions.” And with good reason: indeed, all practical results reflect the nature of one’s religious convictions, just as the limbs of a man down to his finger-tips, owe their very shape to the principle of life that dwells in his body. (Pope Saint Pius X, Notre Charge Apostolique, August 15, 1910.)
The divisions between Catalonia and Spain
“All divisions bother me. There is independence for emancipation and independence for secession. Independence for emancipation, for example, are the Americans, who were emancipated from the European states. The independence of nations for secessions are a dismemberment at times quite obvious. Just think the former Yugoslavia. Obviously there are nations with such different cultures that could not be joined even with glue. The case of Yugoslavia is very clear, but I wonder if it is so clear in other cases, for other people who until now have been united. This must be studied on a case-by-case basis. Scotland, Padania, Catalonia. There will be cases that are right, others that are not. But secession from a nation without an antecedent of forced union must be confronted carefully and analyzes on a case by case basis.” (Jorge Shoots the Breeze While “Resting”.)
Without an antecedent of forced union?
Does this man know anything of the wars for Scottish Independence that were fought in the Thirteenth and Fourteenth Centuries, to say nothing of various wars and battles that last as late as the Sixteenth Century and the spillover of the English Civil War (1642-1651) and the so-called “Glorious Revolution” (1688) in England, which resulted in Dundee’s rising in Scotland?
Without an antecedent of forced union?
The false “pontiff” is as ignorant of true history as he is of the Catholic Faith.
Insofar as Catalonia is concerned, one of the driving forces for Catalonian independence is the desire on the part of independence advocates to give the “people” the “right” to vote in favor of surgical baby-killing (see Only with the independence we will be able to decide by ourselves a proper abortion law).
All of this really begs the question, however, as a true pope would have the prudence to speak only in an official capacity, not off the cuff, on matters of this kind.
As Jorge did choose to blab on these matters, though, it should be pointed out that there are times when secession even without a history of forced union are thoroughly justified by the circumstances in order to promote the common good and to seek an escape from a central government whose laws violate the binding precepts of the Divine Positive Law and the Natural Law.

The Prayer for Peace on Sunday, June 8th
“I felt that it was something that eluded us all. Here, in the Vatican, 99 percent of the people said it would not have done, and then that one percent grew. I felt that we were being pushed into something that had never occurred and gradually took shape. It was by no means a political act – and I felt this from the beginning – but a religious act: to open a window on the world”. (Jorge Shoots the Breeze While “Resting”.)
The opposition within the walls of the Occupied Vatican on the West Bank of the Tiber River to the blasphemous “Prayer for Peace” on Pentecost Sunday, June 8, 2014, had nothing to do with defending the honor and glory of the true God of Divine Revelation, the Most Blessed Trinity. It had to do with fear of antagonizing tensions in the Middle East. After all, how could anyone in the Vatican oppose an “inter-religious” prayer meeting after Assisi I, Assisi II, Assisi III and Bergoglio 461 (days in office, that is).
A religious act?
Here is an antidote to that sort of heretical talk:
I am the LORD thy God: thou shalt not have strange Gods before me.
Everything that there is say about the Pentecost Sunday syncretism festival has been said in Antichrist and His Anti-Pentecost and Antichrist Has Shown Us His Calling Card? Do You Care?.
Journey to the Holy Land
“I decided to go because President Peres invited me. I knew that his tenure ended this spring, and so I was obliged, in some way, to go beforehand. His invitation hastened the trip, I had not thought of doing it.” (Jorge Shoots the Breeze While “Resting”.)
A man who is a baptized Catholic had not thought of going to the Holy Land?
Oh well, life is good at the Casa Santa Marta.
Once again, everything that can be said about Jorge’s trip to the Holy Land is to be found in On the Road to Gehenna With Jorge, Abe and Omar, part one, On the Road to Gehenna with Jorge, Abe and Omar, part two, On the Road to Gehenna with Jorge, Abe and Omar, part three and On the Road to Gehenna with Jorge, Abe and Omar, part four (the end, at last).
Jews and Christians
“You cannot live your Christianity, you cannot be a true Christian, if you do not recognize your Jewish roots. I don’t mean Hebrew in the sense of Semitic race, but in a religious sense. I believe that interfaith dialogue should deepen this, the Jewish roots of Christianity and the flourishing Christian Judaism. I understand that it is a challenge, a hot potato, but it can be done as brothers. I pray every day the Divine Office with the Psalms of David. We went through the 150 Psalms in a week. My prayer is Hebrew, and then I have the Eucharist, which is Christian”. (Jorge Shoots the Breeze While “Resting”.)
One is a true Christian by being baptized a member of the Catholic Church and by persisting in a State of Sanctifying Grace while adhering to everything contained in the Sacred Deposit of Faith.
Judaism is a dead, superseded religion. The entirety of Sacred Scripture belongs to the Catholic Church the Old Testament points to Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. Only Catholic prayer, which is Trinitarian prayer, is true and pleasing to God.
“I cannot explain why it happens, but I think it is a very united phenomenon, in general, and without a fixed rule, to the right. Antisemitism usually lurks better in right political currents rather than left, right? And it continues. Including those who deny the Holocaust, a madness. (Jorge Shoots the Breeze While “Resting”.)
Jorge Mario Bergoglio is a shallow demogague.
Well, is there any other type of demagogue?
Catholics are called to be anti-every-false religion (Talmudism, Mohammedanism, Protestantism, Orthodoxy, Buddhism, Hinduism, Shintoism, Animism, etc.).
The true anti-Semites in the world are the conciliar revolutionaries such as Jorge Mario Bergolio as these hideous men are content to leave Talmudists in their false religion, which they praise constantly, even though it is loathsome in the sight of the Most Blessed Trinity and has the capacity to sanctify and save no human being.
Insofar as Jorge Mario Begoglio’s shallow observation about anti-Semitism being found amongst those who adhere to those who adhere to the false opposite of naturalism termed as “the right,” suffice it to say that Adolf Hitler was the leader of the National Socialist Party.
Furthermore, almost every self-respecting American politician of the false opposite of the naturalist “right” pays his due obeisance to Talmudic Judaism and to the Zionist State of Israel, whose murderous, racialist policies they indemnify at almost every turn.
In reality, you see, there is plenty of genuine anti-Semitism to be found in the precincts of the false opposite of the naturalist “left.” Has Jorge ever heard of the man who was Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro’s spiritual mentor for over twenty years, the “Reverend” Jeremiah Wright?
Even a columnist in the Zionist stronghold known as the New York Post observed the following five months ago:
But lately, anti-Semitism has become more a left-wing pathology. It is driven by the cheap multicultural trashing of the West. Jewish people here and abroad have become convenient targets for those angry with supposedly undeserved Western success and privilege. (The Cowardly New Anti-Semitism)
Jorge the Judaizer is a complete creature of revolutionary slogans and propaganda, daring to use the term “holocaust” that the Talmudists have chosen to signify the shedding of the blood of Jews by the agents of Adolf Hitler’s Third Reich as supposedly incomparable to the shedding of the blood of anyone else in the history of the world, including that of the Most Precious Blood of the Divine Redeemer, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, Whose very Holy Name they despise and upon Whose Holy Cross they spit with revulsion.
Moreover, the likes of Adolf Hitler rose to power in Europe precisely because of the Protestant and Judeo-Masonic attacks on the Social Reign of Christ the King that produced the religiously indifferent, anti-Incarnation civil state of Modernity replete with all of its political, social, moral, legal and economic injustices. Catholics are not to blame for the amoral, murderous actions or the racialist attitudes of Adolf Hitler.
The Jews themselves help to make it possible for Hitler to come to power in Germany by over four centuries of attacks on the Social Reign of Christ the King and, more proximately, by financing the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia that Hitler, who was a socialist but not a Bolshevik, used to justify his own consolidation of power in Germany. They were thus the victims of their own schemes against Christ the King and His Holy Church, and it is in no way to denigrate the the nature crimes committed by Hitler’s agents at Der Fuerher’s instructions to reject the specific numerical claims or to point out that the suffering visited upon the Jews was the logical consequence of the loss of Holy Mother Church’s protection of them that followed in the wake of the overthrow of the Social Reign of Christ the King throughout Europe.
Pius XII and the Vatican Archives
“The opening of the Archives will bring a lot of light. On this theme, what worries me is the figure of Pius XII, the Pope who led the Church during the Second World War. Everything was pulled out on poor Pius XII. But we must remember that first he is seen as the great defender of Jews. He hid many in convents in Rome and in other Italian cities, as well as in the summer residence of Castel Gandolfo. There, in the Pope’s house, in his bedroom 42 children were born, the children of Jews and other persecuted refugees. I do not mean that Pius XII did not make mistakes – I too make so many – but his role is to be read in the context of that time. Was it better, for example, for him not to speak so that no more Jews would be killed most Jews, or should he have spoken? I also want to say that sometimes I am overcome by existential hives when I see everyone taking it out on the Church and Pius XII, and they forget the great powers. Do you know that they were perfectly aware of the Nazi railway network that transported Jews to the concentration camps? They had photos. But they did not bomb these railway lines. Why? It would be good to talk a bit about everything”. (Jorge Shoots the Breeze While “Resting”.)
A Brief Comment Number, Yes, I’ve Lost Count of the Number (look, I’m getting older):
In this, my few readers, the false “pontiff” actually makes some sense.
Let me qualify this observation by saying that Pope Pius XII’s actual wartime record has been examined by scholars, who have acquitted our last true pope of all of the calumnies uttered against him by professional exploiters of Hitler’s crimes (see, for example, the appendix found at the end of Showing Us The Value Of A Conciliar Consecration). There is no reason for anyone to doubt Pope Pius XII’s heroism during World War II. Some Talmudists do so to extract from the lords of conciliarism whatever concessions they want concerning Catholic doctrine and praxis and to cow all critics of Judeo-Masonry from opposing efforts to advance their agenda of statism and unbridled moral evils and rank perversity under cover of the civil law.
It is also interesting to note that Jorge Mario Bergoglio never makes reference to the conversion of the Chief Rabbi of Rome, Israel Zolli, to the Catholic Faith after he had been moved by Papa Pacelli’s efforts to save the Jewry of Rome and Europe. Zolli even took Eugenio when he was baptized.
This having been noted, however, Bergoglio did make a very good point to talk about the actions of the Allies during World War II. Credit must be given where credit is due. This does not make Jorge a member of the Catholic Church or a true Successor of Saint Peter. However, one has to be intellectually dishonest not to acknowledge the a good point when one is made.
Priest or head of the Church?
“The size of a priest is that which best shows my vocation. To serve people comes from within. I turn off the light so as not to spend too much money, for example. These are things pastors do. But I also feel Pope. It helps me do things seriously. My co-workers are very serious and professional. I have the help that I need to do my duty. You should not play at being Pope or priest, it would be immature. When a head of state arrives, I must receive him with the protocol and dignity he deserves. It is true that I have problems with the protocol, but we must respect it”. (Jorge Shoots the Breeze While “Resting”.)
Comment Number Whatever:
Jorge returned to his revolutionary form in this answer, whose awkward phraseology is most likely the result of some translator’s hurried efforts to make the text of the interview accessible in the English language.
Jorge tooted his own horn once again as he boasted about turning off the lights in order to save money. Sorry, Jorge, that does not undo your heresy, apostasy, blasphemy and sacrilege.
Secondly, his completely coarse, vulgar, venal nature is such that thinking himself as a “pope” grates against his supposed “people-loving” ways. He has to remind himself that he is a “pope” to that he can take his duties “seriously.” Although I am not any kind of psychoanalyst, it appears to this layman that Jorge Mario Bergoglio’s personality is that of a narcissistic adolescent, a delinquent who thrills at being the rebel. He would prefer not to adhere to protocol when meeting heads of state as it is simply not part of his “egalitarian,” “street-priest” style. It is only the seriousness and professionalism of those around him who help him take things seriously.
As I noted thirteen months ago, Don’t Worry, Jorge, We Don’t Take You Seriously As A Catholic In The Slightest.
Changes and Future Plans
“I have no flash of inspiration, I have no personal project, simply because I never thought that I would have remained here at the Vatican. Everyone knows: I arrived with a small suitcase to go right back to Buenos Aires. What I’m doing is to realize that upon which the Cardinals reflected in the general congregations before the conclave to discuss the problems of the Church. From there come reflections and recommendations. A very concrete one was that the future Pope should be able to count and outside Council, a group of advisers who did not live in the Vatican. The board of the eight cardinal is composed of members from all continents and has a coordinator. It meets here every three months. Now on July 1st we have a four day meeting and we are making changes that the cardinals themselves are asking for. It is not imperative that we make them but it would be unwise not to listen to those who know the situation”. (Jorge Shoots the Breeze While “Resting”.)
The revolutionary program for “reform” has been spelled out by Oscar Andres Maradiaga Rodriguez, the Chief Commissar (see 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) and by Bergoglio himself in Evangelii Gaudium, November 26, 2013 (see Jorge and Oscar’s False Gospel of False Joy, part one, Jorge and Oscar’s False Gospel of False Joy, part two, Jorge and Oscar’s False Gospel of False Joy, part three, Jorge and Oscar’s False Gospel of False Joy, part four, Jorge and Oscar’s False Gospel of False Joy, part five, Jorge and Oscar’s False Gospel of False Joy, part six and Jorge and Oscar’s False Gospel of False Joy, part seven).
As I noted two months ago, Jorge Has Cooked the Books in favor of his revolutionary program. The Commissars are window dressing for public consumption in display of “collegiality.”
The relationship with the Orthodox
“My brother Bartholomew I came to Jerusalem to commemorate the meeting that took place 50 years ago between Paul VI and Athenagoras. That was a meeting after a thousand years of separation. Since Vatican II, the Catholic Church makes every effort to come closer and the Orthodox Church does to. With some Orthodox Churches there is more closeness than with others. I wanted Bartholomew to be with me in Jerusalem, and there it was projected that he also be present at the prayer at the Vatican. For him it was a risky step, because he can be reprimanded, but we must be impressed by this gesture of humility, and for use it is necessary because it is inconceivable that we are divided as Christians, it is a historical sin to which we must make amends”. (Jorge Shoots the Breeze While “Resting”.)
Calling Rodney King Kind of Comment: The master of the “Why Can’t We All Get Along” Ecclesiology, whose antecedent roots can be found in the latent theology of a late drunken motorist who violently resisted arrest named Rodney King, Jorge Mario Bergoglio simply does not understand how there can be “divisions” between Christians. He has already half-jokingly referred to the late Athenagoras telling Giovanni Eugenio Antonio Maria Motnini/soon-to-be “Blessed” Paul The Sick that all of the theologians should be sent to an island in order for “brothers” to iron out “differences” among them.The “take-away” from this is that my satirical commentary, Leading Up to the Decrees of the Third Council of Nicea may turn out to be a pretty accurate prediction of what will come out of the seventeen hundredth anniversary of the First Council of Nicea. For yet another review of the ways in which Orthodoxy defects from the Catholic Faith, please see the appendix found at the end of On the Road to Gehenna with Jorge, Abe and Omar, part four, the end, at last.
Faith, science and atheism
“There has been an increase in atheism during the existentialist age, perhaps due to the influence of Sartre. But then came a step forward, towards spiritual quest, the encounter with God in many different ways, not necessarily related to traditional religious forms. The clash between science and faith peaked during the Enlightenment, but it is not so fashionable today, thank God, because we all realized the closeness that exists between one thing and another. Pope Benedict XVI has a good teaching on the relationship between science and faith. In general, most scientists are now very respectful of the faith and an agnostic or atheist scientist says, “I do not dare enter that field”.” (Jorge Shoots the Breeze While “Resting”.)

Has this man been to the State of Colorado without letting any of us know about the trip?
The mad scientists who have given us cloning, in vitro fertilization, all manner of pharmaceutical products designed to alter the mind and the money and to kill innocent babies in their mothers’ wombs, genetically modified organisms, the manufactured myth of “brain death” in order to vivisect human beings for their body members, the cross-breeding of human and animal genes and other such delights straight from Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World and the Weimar Republic and Hitler’s Third Reich are not at war with the true God of Divine Revelation as He has revealed Himself to us exclusively through His true Church, the Catholic Church?
The conflict between faith and science is not so “fashionable” today?
Then again, a mad theologian has had to have to respect for fellow madmen in various fields, including that of science.
This answer alone shows the shallowness and utter detachment from the dangers of the world in which we live that constitute the mind, such as it is, of Jorge Mario Bergoglio.
The Heads of State and politics
“Many heads of state came and the variety is interesting. Each with their own personality. My attention was drawn by a transversal element among the young politicians, whether center, left or right. Maybe they talk about the same problems, but with new music, and I like it, gives me hope because politics is one of the highest forms of love, of charity. Why? Because it leads to a common good, and a person who can, but does not enter politics to serve the common good, is egoistic. And if instead he uses politics for his own good, this is corruption. About fifteen years ago, the French bishops wrote a pastoral letter, a reflection entitled réhabiliter la politiqu’. It is a beautiful text that helps to understand all these things. (Jorge Shoots the Breeze While “Resting”.)
Comments from Pope Pius XI and Pope Saint Pius X:
Here is what Jorge Mario Bergoglio should have said to each of the heads of state who have visited him, including Barack Hussein Obama/Barry Soetoro (see Smiling Themselves Into the Very Depths of Hell):
Those who hold the reins of government should not forget that it is the duty of public authority by appropriate laws and sanctions to defend the lives of the innocent, and this all the more so since those whose lives are endangered and assailed cannot defend themselves. Among whom we must mention in the first place infants hidden in the mother’s womb. And if the public magistrates not only do not defend them, but by their laws and ordinances betray them to death at the hands of doctors or of others, let them remember that God is the Judge and Avenger of innocent blood which cried from earth to Heaven. (Pope Pius XI, Casti Connubii, December 31, 1930.)
The common good?
The common good must be pursued in light of man’s Last End:
3. That the State must be separated from the Church is a thesis absolutely false, a most pernicious error. Based, as it is, on the principle that the State must not recognize any religious cult, it is in the first place guilty of a great injustice to God; for the Creator of man is also the Founder of human societies, and preserves their existence as He preserves our own. We owe Him, therefore, not only a private cult, but a public and social worship to honor Him. Besides, this thesis is an obvious negation of the supernatural order. It limits the action of the State to the pursuit of public prosperity during this life only, which is but the proximate object of political societies; and it occupies itself in no fashion (on the plea that this is foreign to it) with their ultimate object which is man’s eternal happiness after this short life shall have run its course. But as the present order of things is temporary and subordinated to the conquest of man’s supreme and absolute welfare, it follows that the civil power must not only place no obstacle in the way of this conquest, but must aid us in effecting it. The same thesis also upsets the order providentially established by God in the world, which demands a harmonious agreement between the two societies. Both of them, the civil and the religious society, although each exercises in its own sphere its authority over them. It follows necessarily that there are many things belonging to them in common in which both societies must have relations with one another. Remove the agreement between Church and State, and the result will be that from these common matters will spring the seeds of disputes which will become acute on both sides; it will become more difficult to see where the truth lies, and great confusion is certain to arise. Finally, this thesis inflicts great injury on society itself, for it cannot either prosper or last long when due place is not left for religion, which is the supreme rule and the sovereign mistress in all questions touching the rights and the duties of men. Hence the Roman Pontiffs have never ceased, as circumstances required, to refute and condemn the doctrine of the separation of Church and State. Our illustrious predecessor, Leo XIII, especially, has frequently and magnificently expounded Catholic teaching on the relations which should subsist between the two societies. “Between them,” he says, “there must necessarily be a suitable union, which may not improperly be compared with that existing between body and soul.-“Quaedam intercedat necesse est ordinata colligatio (inter illas) quae quidem conjunctioni non immerito comparatur, per quam anima et corpus in homine copulantur.” He proceeds: “Human societies cannot, without becoming criminal, act as if God did not exist or refuse to concern themselves with religion, as though it were something foreign to them, or of no purpose to them…. As for the Church, which has God Himself for its author, to exclude her from the active life of the nation, from the laws, the education of the young, the family, is to commit a great and pernicious error. — “Civitates non possunt, citra scellus, gerere se tamquam si Deus omnino non esset, aut curam religionis velut alienam nihilque profuturam abjicere…. Ecclesiam vero, quam Deus ipse constituit, ab actione vitae excludere, a legibus, ab institutione adolescentium, a societate domestica, magnus et perniciousus est error.” (Pope Saint Pius X, Vehementer Nos, February 11, 1906.)
As was his wont throughout his priestly life of absolute fidelity to Christ the King, Pope Saint Pius X minced no words when addressing himself to the injustice done both to God and to the nation of France itself by the law of separation. Our sainted pontiff decried the effect of French laws on marriage, family and the education, and he stated in no uncertain terms that at the separation of Church and State is a “thesis absolutely false.” Something that is false in 1906 does not become “true” at a later point by the invocation of a “hermeneutic of continuity” (or “living tradition”) or by Francis the Illusionist’s simply ignoring that which he believes was wrong to begin with as it was part of the “no church” of the past.
Paragraph Three of Vehementer Nos, which has been cited on these pages so many, many times in the past, makes it clear that the Roman Pontiffs “have never ceased, as circumstances required, to refute and condemn the doctrine of the separation of Church and State.” That the conciliar “pontiffs” have embraced and promoted this falsehood is just another proof of the fact that they have not been true and legitimate Successors of Saint Peter as Vicars of Christ cannot teach that which has been condemned in the past.
The abdication of Benedict
“Pope Benedict accomplished a very big gesture. He opened a door, he created an institution, that of possible Popes emeritus. Seventy years ago there were no bishops emeritus. How many are there today? Well, since we live longer, we arrive at an age when we cannot go on with things. I will do the same as he did, I will ask the Lord to enlighten me when the time comes and tell me what I should do. He will tell me for sure.” (Jorge Shoots the Breeze While “Resting”.)
Another This Is Not News Comment:
Wasn’t Henrique Cymerman, the Talmudic journalist who conducted the latest interview with Jorge, aboard the El Al flight that took the Argentine Apostate from Tel Aviv, Israel, to Rome, on Monday, May 26, 2014, as Jorge told us that the “office” of “Pope Emeritus” is now an institution in the counterfeit church of conciliarism?
My potential resignation
“I will do what the Lord tells me to do. Pray and try to follow God’s will. Benedict XVI no longer had the strength and honestly, as a man of faith, humble as he is, he took this decision. Seventy years ago, Popes Emeritus didn’t exist. What will happen with Popes Emeritus? We need to look at Benedict XVI as an institution, he opened a door, that of the Popes Emeritus. The door is open, whether there will be others, only God knows. I believe that if a bishop of Rome feels he is losing his strength, he must ask himself the same questions Pope Benedict XVI did.” (Interview Number I’ve Lost Count of the Number.)
The only thing that is really “new” about Bergoglio’s answer to Cymerman on this point is that he now seems more definite about resigning when the time is right for him to do so after making sure his revolutionary agenda is institutionalized beyond any kind of possible point of return. (For my comments on Jorge’s answer from all of twenty-two days ago, see On the Road to Gehenna with Jorge, Abe and Omar, part four, the end, at last.)
When I thought of retiring with the priests at rest
‘I had a private room for me in a nursing home for elderly priests in Buenos Aires. I would have left the archdiocese at the end of last year and I had already submitted the resignation to Pope Benedict when I turned 75 years old. I chose a room and I said: I want to come and live here. I will work as a priest, helping in parishes. That would have been my future before becoming Pope”. (Jorge Shoots the Breeze While “Resting”.)
Third to Last Comment:
How humble, how self-effacing.
He could have helped out in however many parishes that he wanted. He is layman, not a priest.
The football World Cup
“The Brazilians have asked me for neutrality … (laughs) and I keep my word because Brazil and Argentina have always been antagonists”. (Jorge Shoots the Breeze While “Resting”.)
Second to Last Comment:
As I came to realize much, much later than I should have, competitive sports engenders needlessly hostility, much more so now given the absence of a superabundance of Sanctifying and Actual Grace and the prevalence of so many unrepented sins i the world. Competitive sports are the domains of large corporate advertisers who specialize in pedaling immodesty, indecency and impurity. No human being has any need to watch tattooed people display athletic skills. Our time is better spent praying Rosaries and doing spiritual reading.
The World Cup is a waste of one’s good Catholic time, and this is from one who wasted a good deal of time in his life watching baseball. Who can watch the advertisements for unmentionable products or sit by passively watching the tattooed players and indecently dress fans in the stands and say that he is using his time as Our Blessed Lord Saviour Jesus Christ desires?
How I would like to be remembered
“I never thought of this, but I like it when one remembers someone else and says: “He was a good man, he did what he could, he was not so bad””. (Jorge Shoots the Breeze While “Resting”.)
Never thought of this?
Jorge Mario Bergoglio is not stupid. He must know, barring God’s direct intervention, he is going to be “canonized” immediately upon his death, thereby entering the Conciliar Pantheon of False Idols. It will be “Santo Subito” for “Saint Francis the Merciful, the Humble, the Pious, the Devout, the Kind and the Slayer of Straw Men,” and I mean that it will be announced immediately after his death, thereby making unnecessary any Protestant and Judeo-Masonic Novus Ordo “Mass of Christian Burial.”
There have been several other developments in recent days in the never-never land of the netherworld known as the counterfeit church of conciliarism. I see no point in reviewing such things as yet another “group hug” session between Jorge Mario Bergolio and Justin Welby, the layman who masquerades as the “archbishop” of Canterbury, inside the walls of the Occupied Vatican on the West Bank of the Tiber River on Monday, June 16, 2014 (see Pope Francis and Archbishop Welby discuss ways of working for unity).
Come on, it’s all be said by our true popes:
It is for this reason that so many who do not share ‘the communion and the truth of the Catholic Church’ must make use of the occasion of the Council, by the means of the Catholic Church, which received in Her bosom their ancestors, proposes [further] demonstration of profound unity and of firm vital force; hear the requirements [demands] of her heart, they must engage themselves to leave this state that does not guarantee for them the security of salvation. She does not hesitate to raise to the Lord of mercy most fervent prayers to tear down of the walls of division, to dissipate the haze of errors, and lead them back within holy Mother Church, where their Ancestors found salutary pastures of life; where, in an exclusive way, is conserved and transmitted whole the doctrine of Jesus Christ and wherein is dispensed the mysteries of heavenly grace.
It is therefore by force of the right of Our supreme Apostolic ministry, entrusted to us by the same Christ the Lord, which, having to carry out with [supreme] participation all the duties of the good Shepherd and to follow and embrace with paternal love all the men of the world, we send this Letter of Ours to all the Christians from whom We are separated, with which we exhort them warmly and beseech them with insistence to hasten to return to the one fold of Christ; we desire in fact from the depths of the heart their salvation in Christ Jesus, and we fear having to render an account one day to Him, Our Judge, if, through some possibility, we have not pointed out and prepared the way for them to attain eternal salvation. In all Our prayers and supplications, with thankfulness, day and night we never omit to ask for them, with humble insistence, from the eternal Shepherd of souls the abundance of goods and heavenly graces. And since, if also, we fulfill in the earth the office of vicar, with all our heart we await with open arms the return of the wayward sons to the Catholic Church, in order to receive them with infinite fondness into the house of the Heavenly Father and to enrich them with its inexhaustible treasures. By our greatest wish for the return to the truth and the communion with the Catholic Church, upon which depends not only the salvation of all of them, but above all also of the whole Christian society: the entire world in fact cannot enjoy true peace if it is not of one fold and one shepherd. (Pope Pius IX, Iam Vos Omnes, September 13, 1868.)
Agreement and union of minds is the necessary foundation of this perfect concord amongst men, from which concurrence of wills and similarity of action are the natural results. Wherefore, in His divine wisdom, He ordained in His Church Unity of Faith; a virtue which is the first of those bonds which unite man to God, and whence we receive the name of the faithful – “one Lord, one faith, one baptism” (Eph. iv., 5). That is, as there is one Lord and one baptism, so should all Christians, without exception, have but one faith. And so the Apostle St. Paul not merely begs, but entreats and implores Christians to be all of the same mind, and to avoid difference of opinions: “I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no schisms amongst you, and that you be perfect in the same mind and in the same judgment” (I Cor. i., 10). Such passages certainly need no interpreter; they speak clearly enough for themselves. Besides, all who profess Christianity allow that there can be but one faith. It is of the greatest importance and indeed of absolute necessity, as to which many are deceived, that the nature and character of this unity should be recognized. And, as We have already stated, this is not to be ascertained by conjecture, but by the certain knowledge of what was done; that is by seeking for and ascertaining what kind of unity in faith has been commanded by Jesus Christ. (Pope Leo XIII, Satis Cognitum, June 29, 1896.)
Weigh carefully in your minds and before God the nature of Our request. It is not for any human motive, but impelled by Divine Charity and a desire for the salvation of all, that We advise the reconciliation and union with the Church of Rome; and We mean a perfect and complete union, such as could not subsist in any way if nothing else was brought about but a certain kind of agreement in the Tenets of Belief and an intercourse of Fraternal love. The True Union between Christians is that which Jesus Christ, the Author of the Church, instituted and desired, and which consists in a Unity of Faith and Unity of Government. (Pope Leo XIII, Praeclara Gratulationis Publicae, June 20, 1894.)
So, Venerable Brethren, it is clear why this Apostolic See has never allowed its subjects to take part in the assemblies of non-Catholics: for the union of Christians can only be promoted by promoting the return to the one true Church of Christ of those who are separated from it, for in the past they have unhappily left it. To the one true Church of Christ, we say, which is visible to all, and which is to remain, according to the will of its Author, exactly the same as He instituted it. During the lapse of centuries, the mystical Spouse of Christ has never been contaminated, nor can she ever in the future be contaminated, as Cyprian bears witness: “The Bride of Christ cannot be made false to her Spouse: she is incorrupt and modest. She knows but one dwelling, she guards the sanctity of the nuptial chamber chastely and modestly.”The same holy Martyr with good reason marveled exceedingly that anyone could believe that “this unity in the Church which arises from a divine foundation, and which is knit together by heavenly sacraments, could be rent and torn asunder by the force of contrary wills.” For since the mystical body of Christ, in the same manner as His physical body, is one, compacted and fitly joined together, it were foolish and out of place to say that the mystical body is made up of members which are disunited and scattered abroad: whosoever therefore is not united with the body is no member of it, neither is he in communion with Christ its head. (Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos, January 6, 1928.)
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.)
Still believe that the Catholic Church and the counterfeit church of conciliarism are one and the same. That’s your problem. You are simply wrong. (See Are the Conciliar Church and the Catholic Church The Same?)
The Catholic Church cannot be the author of error, heresy, apostasy, blasphemy or sacrilege. She can never be the author of any kind of novelty or innovation. She does not contradict herself. She speaks with one voice throughout the ages, the voice of her Divine Founder, Invisible Head and Mystical Bridegroom, Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ:
These firings, therefore, with all diligence and care having been formulated by us, we define that it be permitted to no one to bring forward, or to write, or to compose, or to think, or to teach a different faith. Whosoever shall presume to compose a different faith, or to propose, or teach, or hand to those wishing to be converted to the knowledge of the truth, from the Gentiles or Jews, or from any heresy, any different Creed; or to introduce a new voice or invention of speech to subvert these things which now have been determined by us, all these, if they be Bishops or clerics let them be deposed, the Bishops from the Episcopate, the clerics from the clergy; but if they be monks or laymen: let them be anathematized. (Constantinople III).
These and many other serious things, which at present would take too long to list, but which you know well, cause Our intense grief. It is not enough for Us to deplore these innumerable evils unless We strive to uproot them. We take refuge in your faith and call upon your concern for the salvation of the Catholic flock. Your singular prudence and diligent spirit give Us courage and console Us, afflicted as We are with so many trials. We must raise Our voice and attempt all things lest a wild boar from the woods should destroy the vineyard or wolves kill the flock. It is Our duty to lead the flock only to the food which is healthful. In these evil and dangerous times, the shepherds must never neglect their duty; they must never be so overcome by fear that they abandon the sheep. Let them never neglect the flock and become sluggish from idleness and apathy. Therefore, united in spirit, let us promote our common cause, or more truly the cause of God; let our vigilance be one and our effort united against the common enemies.
Indeed you will accomplish this perfectly if, as the duty of your office demands, you attend to yourselves and to doctrine and meditate on these words: “the universal Church is affected by any and every novelty” and the admonition of Pope Agatho: “nothing of the things appointed ought to be diminished; nothing changed; nothing added; but they must be preserved both as regards expression and meaning.” Therefore may the unity which is built upon the See of Peter as on a sure foundation stand firm. May it be for all a wall and a security, a safe port, and a treasury of countless blessings. To check the audacity of those who attempt to infringe upon the rights of this Holy See or to sever the union of the churches with the See of Peter, instill in your people a zealous confidence in the papacy and sincere veneration for it. As St. Cyprian wrote: “He who abandons the See of Peter on which the Church was founded, falsely believes himself to be a part of the Church . . . .
But for the other painful causes We are concerned about, you should recall that certain societies and assemblages seem to draw up a battle line together with the followers of every false religion and cult. They feign piety for religion; but they are driven by a passion for promoting novelties and sedition everywhere. They preach liberty of every sort; they stir up disturbances in sacred and civil affairs, and pluck authority to pieces.(Pope Gregory XVI, Mirari Vos, August 15, 1832.)
7. It is with no less deceit, venerable brothers, that other enemies of divine revelation, with reckless and sacrilegious effrontery, want to import the doctrine of human progress into the Catholic religion. They extol it with the highest praise, as if religion itself were not of God but the work of men, or a philosophical discovery which can be perfected by human means. The charge which Tertullian justly made against the philosophers of his own time “who brought forward a Stoic and a Platonic and a Dialectical Christianity” can very aptly apply to those men who rave so pitiably. Our holy religion was not invented by human reason, but was most mercifully revealed by God; therefore, one can quite easily understand that religion itself acquires all its power from the authority of God who made the revelation, and that it can never be arrived at or perfected by human reason. In order not to be deceived and go astray in a matter of such great importance, human reason should indeed carefully investigate the fact of divine revelation. Having done this, one would be definitely convinced that God has spoken and therefore would show Him rational obedience, as the Apostle very wisely teaches. For who can possibly not know that all faith should be given to the words of God and that it is in the fullest agreement with reason itself to accept and strongly support doctrines which it has determined to have been revealed by God, who can neither deceive nor be deceived? (Pope Pius IX, Qui Pluribus, November 9, 1846.)
As for the rest, We greatly deplore the fact that, where the ravings of human reason extend, there is somebody who studies new things and strives to know more than is necessary, against the advice of the apostle. There you will find someone who is overconfident in seeking the truth outside the Catholic Church, in which it can be found without even a light tarnish of error. Therefore, the Church is called, and is indeed, a pillar and foundation of truth. You correctly understand, venerable brothers, that We speak here also of that erroneous philosophical system which was recently brought in and is clearly to be condemned. This system, which comes from the contemptible and unrestrained desire for innovation, does not seek truth where it stands in the received and holy apostolic inheritance. Rather, other empty doctrines, futile and uncertain doctrines not approved by the Church, are adopted. Only the most conceited men wrongly think that these teachings can sustain and support that truth. (Pope Gregory XVI, Singulari Nos, May 25, 1834.)
In the Catholic Church Christianity is Incarnate. It identifies Itself with that perfect, spiritual, and, in its own order, sovereign society, which is the Mystical Body of Jesus Christ and which has for Its visible head the Roman Pontiff, successor of the Prince of the Apostles. It is the continuation of the mission of the Savior, the daughter and the heiress of His Redemption. It has preached the Gospel, and has defended it at the price of Its blood, and strong in the Divine assistance and of that immortality which has been promised it, It makes no terms with error but remains faithful to the commands which it has received, to carry the doctrine of Jesus Christ to the uttermost limits of the world and to the end of time, and to protect it in its inviolable integrity. (Pope Leo XIII, A Review of His Pontificate, March 19, 1902.)
Not least among the blessings which have resulted from the public and legitimate honor paid to the Blessed Virgin and the saints is the perfect and perpetual immunity of the Church from error and heresy. We may well admire in this the admirable wisdom of the Providence of God, who, ever bringing good out of evil, has from time to time suffered the faith and piety of men to grow weak, and allowed Catholic truth to be attacked by false doctrines, but always with the result that truth has afterwards shone out with greater splendor, and that men’s faith, aroused from its lethargy, has shown itself more vigorous than before. ( Pope Pius XI, Quas Primas, December 11, 1925.)
For the teaching authority of the Church, which in the divine wisdom was constituted on earth in order that revealed doctrines might remain intact for ever, and that they might be brought with ease and security to the knowledge of men, and which is daily exercised through the Roman Pontiff and the Bishops who are in communion with him, has also the office of defining, when it sees fit, any truth with solemn rites and decrees, whenever this is necessary either to oppose the errors or the attacks of heretics, or more clearly and in greater detail to stamp the minds of the faithful with the articles of sacred doctrine which have been explained. (Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos, January 6, 1928.)
Nothing that the conciliar officials do, including trying to dismiss Pope Saint Pius X’s condemnations of Modernism as having been conditioned by the times in which he lived is new as His Apostateness, Joseph Ratzinger/Benedict XVI, said the exact same thing almost as Father Ratzinger, “Cardinal” Ratzinger and “Pope” Benedict XVI:
1971: In theses 10-12, the difficult problem of the relationship between language and thought is debated, which in post-conciliar discussions was the immediate departure point of the dispute.
The identity of the Christian substance as such, the Christian ‘thing’ was not directly … censured, but it was pointed out that no formula, no matter how valid and indispensable it may have been in its time, can fully express the thought mentioned in it and declare it unequivocally forever, since language is constantly in movement and the content of its meaning changes. (Fr. Ratzinger: Dogmatic formulas must always change.)
1990: The text [of the document Instruction on the Theologian’s Ecclesial Vocation] also presents the various types of bonds that rise from the different degrees of magisterial teaching. It affirms – perhaps for the first time with this clarity – that there are decisions of the magisterium that cannot be the last word on the matter as such, but are, in a substantial fixation of the problem, above all an expression of pastoral prudence, a kind of provisional disposition. The nucleus remains valid, but the particulars, which the circumstances of the times influenced, may need further correction.
In this regard, one may think of the declarations of Popes in the last century [19th century] about religious liberty, as well as the anti-Modernist decisions at the beginning of this century, above all, the decisions of the Biblical Commission of the time [on evolutionism]. As a cry of alarm in the face of hasty and superficial adaptations, they will remain fully justified. A personage such as Johann Baptist Metz said, for example, that the Church’s anti-Modernist decisions render the great service of preserving her from falling into the liberal-bourgeois world. But in the details of the determinations they contain, they became obsolete after having fulfilled their pastoral mission at their proper time. (Joseph Ratzinger, “Instruction on the Theologian’s Ecclesial Vocation,” published with the title “Rinnovato dialogo fra Magistero e Teologia,” in L’Osservatore Romano, June 27, 1990, p. 6, cited at Card. Ratzinger: The teachings of the Popes against Modernism are obsolete)
2005: It is precisely in this combination of continuity and discontinuity at different levels that the very nature of true reform consists. In this process of innovation in continuity we must learn to understand more practically than before that the Church’s decisions on contingent matters – for example, certain practical forms of liberalism or a free interpretation of the Bible – should necessarily be contingent themselves, precisely because they refer to a specific reality that is changeable in itself. It was necessary to learn to recognize that in these decisions it is only the principles that express the permanent aspect, since they remain as an undercurrent, motivating decisions from within.
On the other hand, not so permanent are the practical forms that depend on the historical situation and are therefore subject to change. (Christmas greetings to the Members of the Roman Curia and Prelature, December 22, 2005.)
As I noted early last week after the “prayer for peace” meeting” in the Vatican Gardens on Pentecost Sunday, June 8, 2014, it is my view that we are at the point where repeating what has been stated hundreds upon hundreds of times before is counterproductive. Those who want to see the true state of the Church Militant in this time of apostasy and betrayal will do so. We can only pray that more will do so as we thank Our Lord for having sent us the graces through the loving hands of His Most Blessed Mother for having extricated ourselves from the clutches of the conciliar revolutionaries.
This is why, ladies and gentlemen, it is so important to have nothing whatsoever to do with the counterfeit church of conciliarism. It is indeed a counterfeit religion, one that was born in a revolution and has been advanced by revolutionaries of different stripes (Girondists and Jacobins, Mensheviks and Bolsheviks) with one common goal: to make war upon the Catholic Faith as It has been revealed by Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ to His Holy Church Church for Its eternal safekeeping and infallible explication.
We must embrace the fullness of the Catholic Faith without compromise to conciliarism or its false shepherds. We must try to save our souls in the catacombs by consecrating ourselves to Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ through Our Lady’s Sorrowful and Immaculate Heart.. We must spend as much time as our states-in-life permit before her Divine Son’s Real Presence if this is at all possible where one lives.. And we must protect ourselves and our family members from the efforts of Modernity in the world and Modernism in the conciliar church to take us away from the sure path that is Tradition, which has been handed down to us by the Apostles themselves and is to be kept unchanged until Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ’s Second Coming in glory on the Last Day at the General Judgment of the Living and the Dead.
May we beg Our Lady’s help to recognize the errors that confront us and stay firm in our embrace of the fullness of the truths of the Faith, hoping and praying that we will die in a state of Sanctifying Grace and thus be able to enjoy the victory of the martyrs themselves in the presence of the glory of the Beatific Vision, in the company of the Communion of Saints, headed by herself, the Queen of the Angels and Saints,, remembering that the best path to Heaven after the Mass is Our Lady’s Most Holy Rosary.
The final victory belongs to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
May it be our privilege to plant a few seeds for this great triumph and the ushering in of the Reign of Mary and the restoration of the Social Reign of Christ the King.
Viva Christus Rex! Viva Cristo Rey!
