“Moral principles do not depend on a majority vote. Wrong is wrong, even if everybody is wrong. Right is right, even if nobody is right.”
Those enemies most crafty and sly have filled with bitterness and sadness the Church, spouse of the Immaculate Lamb. They have given Her wormwood to drink; they have placed their impious hands over everything that for Her is most dear. Where the Seat of Saint Peter and the Cathedral of the Truth has been erected to be a light for the nations, they have erected the throne of domination of impiety betting that with luck, having struck down the pastor, they can disperse their congregation. Oh invincible champion, help the people of God against the perversity of the spirits that attack them and give them the victory!
Do you know where this quote comes from? This is from the FULL St. Michael prayer composed by Pope Leo XIII after his terrifying locution, hearing satan declare his intent to attack and wipe Holy Mother Church from the face of the earth.
(We laity are supposed to use the shortened version of the St. Michael prayer because the long version is for use in the context of an exorcism, and laypeople must NEVER, EVER, EVER attempt anything even approaching an exorcism. I’m convinced that a lot of the horrific, demonic problems in the black American (rap/hip-hop) culture have their origin in the so-called “black church” with their fake “bishops” and their “exorcisms”, which actually just opened the door to massive demonic oppression – through the so-called black Christian “churches” themselves.
For a priest to attempt an exorcism without specific faculties and permission to do so from his bishop is also extremely dangerous and NEVER to be attempted. EVER. Interestingly, this is how we know that Novus Ordo ordinations and even the most terrible bishops today DO have full Apostolic Succession – there are countless anecdotes of exorcists engaging a demon without having first acquired permission from the bishop, and the demon is totally non-compliant and mocks the priest for having no delegated authority. Once the authority is obtained, even from a terrible bishop, the demons are forced to comply.)
Aside from the obvious prophetic nature – “having struck down the pastor, they can disperse the congregation” – I love how the phrase “betting with luck” is used. Folks, that’s all satan has. Betting that with LUCK his plans will come to fruition. Satan is that weak. He is warring against God Almighty, and when it comes down to it, satan’s entire arsenal consists of the concupiscence of fallen man and – wait for it – LUCK. Luck doesn’t even exist. Everything is in the Divine Providence. Talk about shooting with blanks.
Do you see why Our Lord expects us to have no fear, and to be filled with hope and confidence?
I hope this helps.
Let me once again thank one and all for your continued support and encouragement as we fight for Jesus Christ, His Holy and Indefectible Bride the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church, and for the Vicar of Christ the Roman Pontiff, and the Petrine See.
To say that the past few days have been momentous would be putting it very, very mildly. While I obviously can’t spill my guts, I do want to give you all HOPE. And boy howdy, can I ever. Folks, keep praying. Our Blessed Lord is up from His little post-prandial snooze in the back of the boat. He’s up. Be filled with hope! Be of good cheer! Be bold in prayer! Remember our team of intercessors, Blessed Emperor Charles I and Zita, St. Vincent Ferrer, St. Catherine of Siena, St. Athanasius, St. Peter, St. Joseph, and Our Lady Undoer of Knots.
If I may ask, would you all join me in prayers of Thanksgiving for graces already received, most particularly those of the past few days? Don’t worry – Our Lord knows EXACTLY what you will be referring to. Just say, “the Ann stuff”. And, it is always good to offer Thanksgiving IN ANTICIPATION for graces that we know will continue to come, because we have FAITH and HOPE. Might I suggest the Glorious Mysteries of the Rosary? The Fruit of the First Glorious Mystery (The Resurrection) is FAITH, and the Fruit of the Second Glorious Mystery (The Ascension) is HOPE. And, of course, the Fruit of the Fifth Glorious Mystery (the Crowning of Our Lady as Queen of Heaven) is TRUST in Mary’s intercession.
Now, back to the business at hand. Have you bought and read J. Michael Miller’s doctoral dissertation, “The Divine Right of the Papacy in Recent Ecumenical Theology” yet? The online version is only NINE BUCKS. What possible, possible reason could there be to NOT engage this veritable Rosetta Stone of a text?
Today, let’s look at Footnote 55 in Chapter 8 on page 184. This is particularly interesting in light of the absolutely bizzarro “Triune Papacy” hypothesis that Ratzinger considered as the opening to his ARSH 1978 essay “Der Primat des Papstes und die Einheit des Gottesvolkes”, (The Primacy of the Pope and the unity of the People of God), which was his contribution to the compendium on the Petrine Office which he, Ratzinger edited, “Dienst an der Einheit.”
I type up the text so that it will populate into search engines, and a photo of the citation is below. Emphases mine.
55. Patrick J. Burns in “Communion, Councils, and Collegiality: Some Catholic Reflections,” in Papal Primacy and the Universal Church, 171, states: “Current historical research on the origins of Roman primacy and episcopal collegiality will inevitable produce more qualified Catholic interpretations of the canons of Vatican I.” Ratzinger takes a somewhat different approach. With the Orthodox, Rome need not demand more than the way papal primacy was understood in the first millenium. The East must cease rejecting as heretical the subsequent Western development and admit that the Catholic Church is legitimate and orthodox under the form it has taken in the Latin West, whereas the West would recognize the Eastern Church as legitimate and orthodox under the form it has taken. In this way the formulations of Pastor Aeternus are bypassed and no longer present a problem. See his, “Prognostics sur l’avenir de l’oecumenisme,” Proche-Orient Chretien 26 (1976) 214-215, or the English summary in T[heological] D[igest] 25 (1977) 202-203. Cf. A[ugustin]. Schmeid’s agreement with Ratzinger in “Das Papsttum im okumenischen Gesprach,” Theologie der Gegenwart 21 (1978) 170.
Ummmmmmm, you think this might merit a look-see? Just a little peek-a-boo, just for giggles? Considering that the standard of schism is, in fact, unity with the Petrine See?
So, I am putting the call out for help on German and French citations, AND if I could ask for any Germans who might have time this week to track down Walter Kasper’s book, “Wozu noch einen Papst?” Folks, that title translates, “Why a Pope?”
Ummmmm, because Jesus Christ said so. But you know that “Wozu…” is going to be the full warplan of Walter Kasper against the Papacy laid out in detail. Again, this MIGHT be something of relevance and importance, considering that Walter Kasper has his hand up his personally installed Antipope puppet’s back and is calling the agenda of the Antichurch, and has been for six years now.
Again, deepest thank to one and all, and keep up the prayers of supplication AND of Thanksgiving!!
“There’s nothing we can do….”
“It is how it is, and it’s never going to get better, only worse, so just accept it….”
“When it comes right down to it, and if we are being perfectly honest, we aren’t very confident that “prayer” is worth anything, at least anything outside our own personal lives.…”
Acedia is a terrible but largely unknown vice. Most people today have never heard the word. The most succinct definition is when you don’t care, and you don’t care that you don’t care.
I was told by a wise priest once, within the Sacrament of Confession no less, that the greatest demonic spirit of oppression over Rome and the Institutional Church was ACEDIA. People go to Rome, and the grace is sucked out of them by ACEDIA and soon they are completely unwilling to do ANYTHING, including pray, and then, like cancer, this spirit of Acedia metastasizes and spreads itself throughout the world. And guess how the resulting time vacuum in the lives of those in Acedia gets filled in this day and age? Social media and TeeVee/movies.
Not only that, but they eventually become, ironically, MILITANT in their Acedia, demanding that others ratify and join in their inaction, impotence and despair. Finally, it reaches a level so dire that the person wallowing in Acedia lashes out and attacks those who will not join in their cult of despair, trying, like the demons, to drag as many others down with them as they can.
In these dark days, one and all would do well to be on the lookout for the terrible vice of Acedia, first in oneself, and then in others, and flee from it with all haste.
The Rosary, as always, combats Acedia, most directly in the Third Glorious Mystery, the Descent of the Holy Ghost Upon the Apostles and Mary. The Fruit of this Mystery is: Love of God, and ZEAL.
I hope this helps.
St. Alphonsus Liguori on the danger of keeping bad company. One of his best sermons, and that is truly saying something.
As I said in Sunday’s post, the fact that pretty much every other Catholic website or blog is either totally silent or engaging in gaslighting and/or calumny in an effort to sweep the illegitimacy of Pope Benedict’s attempted partial abdication under the rug is telling. “Trad, Inc.” isn’t a very big market, but it IS a market, and I have have heard with my own ears more than one major name in the Tradisphere say, “Francis is great for business! Traffic is up, subscriptions are up, donations are up!”
How strange that they can’t see (or maybe they can) that the whole “ignore it, dismiss it, deny it” tactic is EXACTLY what is being done with regards to the sex abuse stuff. Folks, priests chasing after and molesting lads is considered “no big deal” and “just the way it is” outside of North America. It is very similar to the way Europeans view adultery. The French consider it completely normal and not at all scandalous for a man to have a mistress. Europeans were completely mystified by the whole Clinton-Lewinsky scandal in the late 90’s. To be scandalized by priests and bishops literally raping lads and young men is considered by these “elites” to be proof of unsophistication to the point of stupidity. “Oh, grow up. There will always be queers hanging around sacristies. That’s just how it is….” They think that if they just keep ignoring it and denying it, that the “American hillbillies” will forget about it and move on. There is about as much impetus to purge the priesthood of sodomites as there is to purge the world of ballet of sodomites. That is, ZERO.
And so it is with the Substantially Erroneous failed partial abdication of Pope Benedict XVI. Just ignore it, and it will eventually go away…. Just keep saying, “There is no evidence, no matter what.”
Here’s the thing. There is a veritable MOUNTAIN of evidence. I have been poring over texts, and readers have been sending in citations, and it just keeps going and going. One of the most prolific sources of citations is none other than Cardinal Walter Kasper. Folks, this business of essentially dissolving the Petrine Office has been Kasper’s life’s work. He has been writing about this basically NON-STOP for darn near fifty years.
Looking at the timeline, it has become clear that Cardinal Walter Kasper is at the absolute epicenter of the whole conspiracy to “depose” Pope Benedict (his life-long enemy) and install the puppet Bergoglio.
Walter Kasper is the head of the group called the “Sankt Gallen Mafia” and has been since the death of Cardinal Carlo Martini. Martini died on 31 August, ARSH 2012. Note that date. Martini, like Kasper, was a massive proponent of essentially dissolving the Petrine Office and decentralizing the Church into a loose confederation or “synod” of “bishops conferences”.
Pope Benedict XVI said that he started contemplating his partial attempted abdication “several months” before he announced it. That would put it right after Martini’s death and Kasper’s ascension to the top of the Sankt Gallen Mafia.
The faux-conclave convened in March of ARSH 2013 and Walter Kasper’s lapdog, Bergoglio, was named Antipope. Antipope Bergoglio immediately referred to Kasper as his “favorite theologian” and began implementing Kasper’s evil agenda point for point. Kasper wanted Bergoglio as his puppet front precisely because Bergoglio is an idiot who was and is dependent on Kasper and others to provide him with his talking points. Bergoglio was dismissed after only six months from doing a Ph.D. in Germany in the 1970s because he wasn’t intelligent enough to do the work, and has ever since then been trying to ingratiate himself to and prove himself the equal of the German intellectuals. It’s really quite sad.
I strongly suspect that it was Walter Kasper, who had hated and been the enemy of Joseph Ratzinger since the 1960s, that pressured, coerced, threatened, blackmailed, whatever it was, Pope Benedict XVI to leave in the autumn of ARSH 2012.
Let’s look at some citations. First, let’s look at a chilling citation from Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger’s 1996 book “Salt of the Earth”. The book is written in a question-and-answer interview format with Peter Seewald. Here is page 257. I will transcribe the text so that it populates online in search engines. Emphases mine.
SEEWALD: DO YOU THINK THE PAPACY WILL REMAIN AS IT IS?
RATZINGER: In its core it will remain. In other words, a man is needed to be the successor of Peter and to bear a personal final authority that is supported collegially. Part of Christianity is a personalistic principle; it doesn’t get vaporized into anonymities but presents itself in the person of the priest, of the bishop, and the unity of the universal Church once again has a personal expression. This will remain, the magisterial responsibility for the unity of the Church, her faith, and her morals that was defined by Vatican I and II. Forms of exercise can change, they will certainly change, when hitherto separated communities enter into unity with the Pope. By the way, the present Pope’s [John Paul II] exercise of the pontificate – with the trips around the world – is completely different from that of Pius XII. What concrete variations emerge I neither can nor want to imagine. We can’t foresee now exactly how that will look.
He neither could nor wanted to imagine…. Well, that’s not ominous or anything.
Now let’s turn to Walter Kasper. Let’s start with a paper written in ARSH 2002 by Kilian McDonnell, a Benedictine monk. The title of the 19 page paper is, “WALTER KASPER ON THE THEOLOGY AND THE PRAXIS OF THE BISHOP’S OFFICE” with the introduction stating, “The author reviews the discussion between Kasper and Ratzinger on the ontological priority of the universal Church, and then summarizes several studies by Kasper on the papacy and episcopacy at Vatican I….” Yeah, nothing of any relevance or interest here, right folks?
Let’s go to pages 12 and 13, which are numbered pages 722-723 in the journal:
Kasper does not enter into the long discussion, preconciliar, conciliar, and postconciliar on the importance of involving bishops in the governance of the universal Church. But the discussion is both an inner-Catholic question and an ecumenical imperative. In his encyclical Ut unum sint (no. 96), John Paul II issued a call for practical suggestions on how the Petrine ministry might be exercised. “Such a dialogue,” Kasper suggests, “would make sense only if it led to a new historical formation of the office of Peter. A new form would be similar to that which the office of Peter had in the first thousand years, but in a form appropriate to the differences in historical periods and the relationships of the various churches.”51 This appears to point to an exercise of the Petrine function which is more participatory in style, involving the bishops of the world.
Kasper could call on a number of historical studies to support the con- tention that the Petrine office has historically experienced a number of epochal transformations, and none of its historical forms is identical with the office, including the one that obtains today. “One must indeed say that in the present form of its exercise, the Petrine ministry has far from completely exhausted its ecumenical possibilities.”52 In any new form the essential nature of the Petrine office would have to remain unchanged. But the call for a new form needs to be understood in reference to Kasper’s reading of the development of Catholic ecclesiology, read through the eyes of Vatican I and II. He is obviously convinced that the Catholic sense of the Church demands a strong, even vigorous, papacy. Any new form issuing from Pope John Paul II’s call for help in rethinking the Petrine ministry would not mean a diminished Petrine role, but, on the contrary, as he said in a different context, “an even bigger role.”53 The new expression of the Petrine office would include a significant role for the whole episcopacy in the governance of the Church.
This business of demythologizing, decentralizing and essentially trying to turn the Papacy into a Synod of Bishops has been Kasper’s life’s work. His Sankt Gallen Mafia predecessor, Cardinal Martini, wanted EXACTLY the same thing. Kasper is referred to as a “center-conservative” only because in comparison to monsters like Hans Kung and Johannes Neumann who advocated the TOTAL ABOLITION of the Papacy, Kasper was “conservative” by comparison, and Ratzinger was an arch-conservative… by comparison.
Now let’s go to page 18 of the same paper, and THIS extremely prescient nugget:
But Kasper doubts the necessity, in view of the cultural pluralism in the world, to have pastoral questions determined in all of their details in a binding way by the universal Church, so that factually no room to maneuver remains to the individual bishop as he seeks a pastoral solution appropriate to the specific conditions of his diocese, conditions he alone knows in their particularities. This question comes to mind in view of the document of the CDF “On the Reception of Communion for the Faithful Who Have Divorced and Remarried” (1994),73 as also in the case of the many small determinations of the “Instruction on Some Questions Concerning the Cooperation of Laity in the Ministry of the Priest” (1997),74 even though one agrees with the basic concerns of this instruction.
If there is not a certain flexibility given in the concrete application of the universal discipline, then the individual pastor will not concern himself with the application of universal norms he considers cannot be put into practice; when this happens then one is rightly faced with a pastoral practice out of control. Centralism, in this case, effects exactly the opposite of what is intended and lessens the authority of both pope and the bishops. Then the bishop must helplessly stand by and see the continuation of a “pastoral practice from below,” which is full of problems. The local bishop is hindered in finding appropriate solutions in his diocese on his own pastoral responsibility by his loyalty to Rome and by loyalty to the universal detailed legislation which issues from the Curia. In this perspective, fewer documents and individual instructions from Rome would increase the au- thority of the office of Peter in the really basic issues touching the unity of the Church.75
In concluding, Kasper reflects on the meaning for the pastoral practice of a bishop in a world experiencing two opposing movements. On the one hand, the ecumenical and technological globalization efforts are pushing the world toward the global village. But there is a contrary movement in which all things are being westernized, issuing in a new form of the tradi- tional identities of a plethora of cultures, resulting in a conflict of cultures. The forces impelling toward the unity of the global village are being resisted by the clash of cultures. A peaceful future is only possible when the unity of the multiplicity of cultures is achieved. Such a unity in multiplicity is also of great importance for the Church. When the faith and the essence of the Church is inculturated into the multiplicity of cultures then evangelization is possible. In carrying out the mandate to evangelize in the present situation of unity in the multiplicity of cultures the Church will grapple anew with its own unity in multiplicity.
Now you know why Antipope Bergoglio demands the destruction of Europe and more specifically EUROPEAN CHRISTIAN CULTURE by trafficking in musloid conquerors. Because this has been his master Walter Kasper’s agenda for decades.
Now let us turn to the book “The Theology of Walter Kasper: Speaking Truth in Love” published in ARSH 2014.
What I need is for our German readers to attack “Wozu noch einen Papst?” I mean, the guy wrote an entire book called, “Why is there still a Pope?” Do you think MAYBE there is something of interest and relevance in such a book? And hey, no one else is going to do this, so either we do it, or it doesn’t get done.
“In the papacy, as in every church office, the authority of Jesus should take on a “Kenotic form.”
Kenosis is a Lutheran theology (shocker!) that uses Christ’s self-emptying (Philippians 2:7) to essentially deny the Social Kingship of Christ, and to demythologize at best and outright deny at worst, the Petrine Office. A King without a Kingdom, a Papacy with no authority.
Yep. Walter Kasper, who is a proven liar (remember the Edward Pentin scandal when Kasper denied saying that the African bishops need not be paid any attention, except Pentin had recorded the whole thing on his phone and posted the audio file? Pentin’s career would have been FINISHED had he not been able to rebut Kasper’s filthy lying mouth with the recorded audio. Kasper was perfectly happy not just to lie through his teeth, but to destroy a man’s career, reputation and livelihood in the process) is at the very epicenter of the faux-abdication and subsequent usurpation by Antipope Bergoglio. This whole thing is a Walter Kasper production. Don’tcha think maybe someone should be asking some questions?
Blessed Emperor Karl and Servant of God Zita, pray for us!
St. Vincent Ferrer, pray for us!
St. Catherine of Siena, pray for us!
St. Peter, pray for us!
Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on us!

The Associated Press’ Rome correspondent Nicole Winfield REALLY hates child molesters. Hence her relative zeal for reporting on Antipope Bergoglio’s corruption.
Today she has broken the completely not-shocking news that Antipope Bergoglio knew of the formally lodged complaints of sodmitical predation (complete with naked selfies!) of one of his very favorite Argentinian prelates, Gustavo Zanchetta, for YEARS. Of course he did. Antipope Bergoglio elevated Zanchetta to the episcopacy almost immediately upon usurping the Petrine See in ARSH 2013. And where did Antipope Bergoglio send his beloved Gustavo Zanchetta upon naming him a bishop? To Oran, a backwater diocese Northwest of Buenos Aires on the Bolivian border, nestled at the base of the Andes.
So? Antipope Bergoglio sent one of his pet sodomites to a backwater. Why is that of any significance?
Because, as I have reported here and tried unsuccessfully to get actual journalists to pick up, Jorge Bergoglio, through his very, Very, VERY intimate “friend” Gustavo Vera (it is widely known in Argentina that Bergoglio and Vera were sodomite lovers – hence Bergoglio’s installation of Vera in the luxury hotel that Bergoglio lives in in the Vatican – a choice made not out of “humility”, but in order to facilitate “encounters of exquisite tenderness and caressing”) is up to his eyebrows in the trafficking of child sex slaves. Gustavo Vera is known to essentially hold the monopoly on boy prostitutes working the gay bars of Buenos Aires. Vera uses his racketeering front of heading an NGO dedicated to – wait for it – fighting child traffficking, and his drifting in and out of government office to A.) protect his monopoly pimping boys to sodomites in the gay bars by cracking down on freelance rent boys working in the streets outside the bars and B.) facilitate running his pipeline of children which are essentially bought from destitute Bolivian Indian peasants living in remote, high Andean mountain villages in Bolivia.
The fact that Antipope Bergoglio IMMEDIATELY put the boy-chasing sodomite (but I repeat myself) Gustavo Zanchetta in Oran, the critical bordertown on the Gustavo Vera child trafficking pipeline between Bolivia and Buenos Aires, is no surprise whatsoever. The fact that there was a seminary there that Zanchetta was given license to use as his own personal harem/hunting ground was just a consolation for Zanchetta being sent to a backwater town.
Once Zanchetta’s flaming sodomite activities reached critical mass, with PHOTOGRAPHIC EVIDENCE, Antipope Bergoglio brought Zanchetta to Rome and installed him in a very plush position overseeing the Vatican’s massive real estate holdings in Rome. Zanchetta now lives a life of luxury and no doubt gets as much sodomy as he wants with whatever AGE he wants. Why? Because he could blackmail the crap out of Bergoglio.
Why don’t Zanchetta and all of the rest of the filth blackmail Bergoglio? Well, A.) in a sense, they already are. They live in protected luxury and get all the sodomy (and drugs) that they want, so why jeopardize this form of mutually agreeable blackmail/quid pro quo? And B.) Bergoglio is well-known in Argentina for enforcing his rule with contracted physical violence and being involved in political assassinations. In short, like Archbishop Viganò, they all know that to cross Antipope Bergoglio is to take your life in your own hands.
I spoke to some journalists about picking up the Argentinian aspects of Jorge Bergoglio’s criminality, but all declined giving the extremely weak excuse that the whistleblowers are people with morally dubious backgrounds. AS IF WHISTLEBLOWERS FROM THE CHILD PROSTITUTION SCENE IN BUENOS AIRES ARE GOING TO BE CLOISTERED CARMELITE NUNS????
The reason that Antipope Bergoglio has so very conspicuously NEVER traveled to Argentina as the “heroic son returning in glory” since usurping the papacy is because he is known as a wildly corrupt criminal and is HATED by the Argentinian people. Bergoglio’s criminal and sodomitical activity is discussed OPENLY on Argentinian television.
But, as with so much these days, the preferred way to deal with this is to TURN A BLIND EYE.
Turning a blind eye is one of the most ubiquitous manifestations of effeminacy today, because confronting sin is perceived to be something that would “reduce one’s own personal pleasure or comfort” even though it is the right thing to do. Turning a blind eye is also one of the NINE ways of cooperating in sin.
JUST DON’T TALK ABOUT IT. IGNORE IT, AND IT WILL GO AWAY. IT’S JUST A FEW AMERICAN CRANKS TALKING ABOUT IT. JUST DISMISS THEM AS “INSANE”, AND THEN WAIT FOR IT TO BLOW OVER. JUST KEEP SAYING, “THERE IS NO EVIDENCE”, EVEN WHEN THERE IS. THERE IS NOTHING WE CAN DO, ANYWAY. JUST WAIT FOR HIM TO DIE, AND THEN MAYBE SOMETHING CAN BE DONE, BUT NOT BY US.
Huh. I just noticed…. The talking points above are EXACTLY the same as those used by the people who refuse to acknowledge the substantially erroneous nature of Pope Benedict’s attempted partial abdication. EXACTLY. THE. SAME.
Here is a short compendium of posts I made last year, all sourced from Argentine readers (“The Argentine Armada”) who desperately want the truth about Antipope Bergoglio, which is so widely known and discussed in Argentina, to make it into the English-speaking world.
Freemasonry exists for the purpose of destroying the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church. The explicit tactic in this, as openly stated by Freemasons is
1.) the destruction of all Monarchies, especially in Europe because European Monarchs were Catholic. It started with France, and ended in November ARSH 1918 with the abdication of Charles I of Austria, now known as Blessed Karl and German Emperor Wilhelm II. Fascinatingly, Emperor Charles I did NOT abdicate. He… wait for it… “RENOUNCED PARTICIPATION IN STATE AFFAIRS.” That has an oddly familiar ring to it, no?
Emperor Wilhelm II of Germany warned the Archbishop of Cologne, Cardinal Felix von Hartmann, of the Freemasonic warplan, and Hartmann wrote a letter on November 8, ARSH 1918 to the Apostolic Nuncio (Vatican Ambassador) to Germany who was, at the time, Archbishop Eugenio Pacelli – who was to become Pope Pius XII in March of ARSH 1939.
The letter opened thusly:
His Majesty the Emperor just has let it be known to me that, according to news that came to him yesterday, the Grand Orient [Freemasonic Lodge] has just decided first to depose all Sovereigns – first of all him, the Emperor – then to destroy the Catholic Church, to imprison the pope, etc., and finally to establish on the ruins of the former bourgeois society a world republic under the leadership of American Big Capital….”
Emperor Wilhelm II of Germany abdicated the next day, 9 November ARSH 1918, and Emperor Charles I of Austria “renounced participation in state affairs” two days after that, on 11 November. Charles I DID NOT ABDICATE.
2.) the attempted destruction of the Papacy is the next necessary Freemasonic step in destroying the institutional Church and establishing a one world government and humanist religion.
Remember the piece posted just below this one in which the “demythologizing” of the Papacy is exposed as a buzzword in the Modernist agenda driven toward dissolving the Petrine Office – which is an Absolute Monarchy directly established by Christ Almighty – and replacing it with a counterfeit “collegial, synodal Petrine Ministry”?
In the piece just below that you will recall, Joseph Ratzinger opens his ARSH 1978 piece, Der Primat des Papstes und die Einheit des Gottesvolkes (The Primacy of the Pope and the unity of the People of God) with this paragraph:
Das Thema Papsttum gehört nicht zu den populären Themen der Nachkonzilzeit. Es hatte ein gewisses Maß an Selbstverständlichkeit, solange ihm in politischen Raum die Monarchie entsprach. In dem Augenblick, in dem der monarchische Gedanke praktisch erloschen und durch die demokratische Idee abgelöst ist, fehlt der Primatslehre das Bezugsfeld in unseren allgemeinen Denkvoraussetzungen. So ist es gewiß kein Zufall, daß das Erste Vatikanum von der Primatsidee, das Zweite aber von dem Ringen um den Begriff der Kollegialität beherrscht wurde.
“The topic of the papacy is not one of the popular themes of the post-conciliar era. It had a certain measure of implicitness as long as it corresponded to the monarchy in political space. At the present moment, when the idea of monarchy has practically died out and been replaced by the democratic idea, the doctrine of primacy lacks the frame of reference in our general presuppositions. So it is certainly no coincidence that the First Vatican Council was dominated by the primacy idea, but the Second by the struggle for the concept of collegiality.”
Ratzinger then continued on in the piece to implicitly accept the notion of the “expiry” of the monarchic model of the Papacy. If you read Miller’s dissertation, you will clearly see that Ratzinger, even as the MOST CONSERVATIVE voice in the bunch, has still fallen for this lie, planted in the German academic zeitgeist by Freemasons decades before, and really dating back to the Lutheran Revolt itself.
Let’s look back now to Pope Leo XIII and his explicit warning of this Freemasonic treachery given in his Encyclical Letter on Freemasonry “Humanus Genus”. Let’s blockquote paragraph 15:
15. But against the apostolic see and the Roman Pontiff the contention of these enemies has been for a long time directed. The Pontiff was first, for specious reasons, thrust out from the bulwark of his liberty and of his right, the civil princedom; soon, he was unjustly driven into a condition which was unbearable because of the difficulties raised on all sides; and now the time has come when the partisans of the sects openly declare, what in secret among themselves they have for a long time plotted, that the sacred power of the Pontiffs must be abolished, and that the papacy itself, founded by divine right, must be utterly destroyed. If other proofs were wanting, this fact would be sufficiently disclosed by the testimony of men well informed, of whom some at other times, and others again recently, have declared it to be true of the Freemasons that they especially desire to assail the Church with irreconcilable hostility, and that they will never rest until they have destroyed whatever the supreme Pontiffs have established for the sake of religion.
For those of you who have spent the $9 and bought the online version of J. Michael Miller’s doctoral dissertation and read even the tiniest section of it, four words in that pullquote from Pope Leo XIII will have jumped off the page at you. Those four words: FOUNDED BY DIVINE RIGHT.
Miller’s dissertation is a 300 page discussion of the difference between TWO sets of terms:
MUNUS (Office) ——— MINISTERIUM (ministry/function)
IUS DIVINUM (Divine Law) ————- IUS HUMANUM (Human Law)
These terms are then applied to the concepts of REVERSIBILITY and MUTABILITY, namely, can the Papacy be reversed – that is, TOTALLY ABOLISHED (Kung and Neumann said “yes”, most others, “no”) and can the Papacy be CHANGED, even radically (nearly all cited said “yes”, and not only “yes”, but “yes, and it MUST be changed”).
Which brings us to just yesterday, wherein VaticanNews itself glowingly reported on Antipope Bergoglio’s letter to the “Pontifical Academy for Life” which was pure, unadulterated Freemasonic agitprop. Understand that Freemasonry is the worship of man (humanism), of man as god-in-the-making. Humanism is the very name of this wicked false religion. “Fraternity” and “Equality” are the mantras Freemasons use to advance toward their goal of a tandem one world government and religion. Now look at Antipope Bergoglio’s remarks, reported and posted on the VaticanNews website under the headline, “Pope (sic) to Academy for Life: Promote Humanism of Fraternity”:
A difficult task for the Church
In response, the Pope (sic) said, the Church is called to react against the negativity that “foments division, indifference, and hostility.” This is a difficult task for the Church, which is in danger of failing to recognize the gravity of the contemporary emergency. “It’s time,” he said, “for a new vision aimed at promoting a humanism of fraternity and solidarity between individuals and peoples.”
In the video below, recorded in October of ARSH 2013, Auntie Blanche McCarrick, serial lifelong sacriligious sodomite predator, says the following:
“About, maybe, just before we went into the general conversations when everybody could talk, a very interesting and influential Italian gentleman came, asked to come to see me, and I said “Sure”, and he came to see me at the seminary, at the American College, where I was staying. We sat down. This was a very brilliant man. Very influential man in Rome. And he, we talked about a number of things. He had a favor to ask me from back home in the United States. But then he said, “What about Bergoglio?” And I was surprised at the question. I said, “What about him?” He said, “Does he have a chance?” I said, “I don’t think so, cause I, no one’s mentioned his name. He hasn’t been in … I don’t think its on anybody’s mind to vote for him.” He said, “He could do it, you know.” I said, “What could he do?” He said, “He could reform the Church.” He gave him five years, he could put us back on target. “He’s 76.” He goes, “Yeah, five years. If he had five years, if the Lord working through Bergoglio in five years could make the Church over again.” I said, “That’s an interesting thing.” He said, “I know you’re his friend.” I said, “I hope I am.” He said, “Talk him up.”
IF I WERE A BETTIN’ GIRL, I WOULD LAY MONEY THAT THIS “VERY INFLUENTIAL MAN IN ROME” WAS THE HEAD OF THE ROME MASONIC LODGE (GRAND ORIENT) AT THE TIME, GUSTAVO RAFFI, OR HIS SUCCESSOR, STEFANO BISI.
But NAH, there’s nothing to see here, folks. There is absolutely no evidence of anything whatsoever so shut up stupid insane schismatic stupid crazy stupid crazy stupid schismatic!
Like St. Vincent Ferrer, I think that in these days we should especially enjoin as intercessors Blessed Karl (Charles I of Austria) and his wife Zita, who is now a Servant of God. They lived being forced out of their rightful monarchical state by the Freemasons, but Blessed Charles, with Zita at his side, stood firm and refused to abdicate. How can they but be powerful advocates and intercessors in these dark days now that the Freemasonic plot that forced them from their rightful throne has now reached its ultimate target of the Petrine See itself? Personally, I could kick myself for not making this connection sooner. Here is a lovely picture of their wedding day. By all accounts they were truly beautiful people, both inside and out.
Blessed Karl and Servant of God Zita, pray for us!
St. George, pray for us!
St. Joan of Arc, pray for us!
St. Michael the Archangel, pray for us!
Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on us!
The importance of the precision between the terms “munus” (OFFICE) and “ministerium” (MINISTRY) can not be overstated.
Have you bought and read Archbishop J. Michael Miller’s ARSH 1979 doctoral dissertation, “The Divine Right of the Papacy in Recent Ecumenical Theology” yet? The text is a 300 page Rosetta Stone – in AMERICAN ENGLISH, no less – on the 20th Century mostly-German madness (although the American Cardinal Dulles figures in) to “fundamentally transform” the Papacy precisely along the lines of OFFICE vs MINISTRY. My paper copy has arrived, so it is now much easier to flip through and cross-reference the text, and what has absolutely leapt out at me ties together a quote by +Fulton Sheen, a quote from +Ganswein’s infamous May 20, ARSH 2016 speech at the Gregorianum in Rome, and the news that just broke that Antipope Bergoglio is ordering the final, complete dissolution of the Papal Household, which until Paul VI changed its name was called since the SECOND CENTURY the “Papal Court.”
The key term that just keeps cropping up is “DEMYTHOLOGIZE”. As in, “demythologize the papacy”.
DEMYTHOLOGIZE: reinterpret (a subject) so that it is free of mythical or heroic elements; reinterpret what are considered to be mythological elements of (the Bible)
In so-called “ecumenical” circles, it was the Lutheran heretic Rudolf Bultmann who brought the term to prominence in the early 20th century, having said, “We cannot use electric lights and radios and, in the event of illness, avail ourselves of modern medical and clinical means and at the same time believe in the spirit and wonder world of the New Testament.”
Speak for yourself there, Rudy.
+Miller’s dissertation is 300 pages of arguing the necessity of demythologizing the Papacy for the sake of “ecumenical unity” by moving away from the notion of the Petrine Office as a divinely instituted, unchangeable monarchy and focusing instead on the changeable “Petrine ministry” which is continually “emerging” through the workings of “the Spirit”. (I get the feeling that “the Spirit” ain’t who most people think….) Miller’s concluding section (pages 285-287) titled “Recommendations For Future Dialogue” contains such nuggets as:
”First, ecumenical dialogue might well gain in clarity if the term “ius divinum” is abandoned in the future.”
”A second term to be avoided is ‘the primacy’. Because it can refer to either Petrine primacy or to papal primacy, it is ambiguous. We recommend therefore that the term ius divinum be replaced, and that the Petrine function always be distinguished from its realization in the historic papacy.”
”Thirdly, the consequences of agreeing to accept a Petrine function should be drawn out to show its ecumenical significance. This allows non-Catholics to reconsider their present need for a ministry of unity directed to the universal church, without limiting their reflections to the present form of papacy.”
”Catholics must ask themselves whether the papal ministry must necessarily be exercised as it has been in the past and is in the present.”
The “demythologizing” of the Papacy has cropped up as a trendy buzzterm, and we see it used by no less than +Ganswein himself, in his May ARSH 2016 speech, which was approved by Pope Benedict:
”It was “the least expected step in contemporary Catholicism,” Regoli writes, and yet a possibility [Papal retirement] which Cardinal Ratzinger had already pondered publicly on August 10, 1978 in Munich, in a homily on the occasion of the death of Paul VI. Thirty-five years later, he has not abandoned the Office of Peter — something which would have been entirely impossible for him after his irrevocable acceptance of the office in April 2005. By an act of extraordinary courage, he has instead renewed this office (even against the opinion of well-meaning and undoubtedly competent advisers), and with a final effort he has strengthened it (as I hope). Of course only history will prove this. But in the history of the Church it shall remain true that, in the year 2013, the famous theologian on the throne of Peter became history’s first “pope emeritus.” Since then, his role — allow me to repeat it once again — is entirely different from that, for example, of the holy Pope Celestine V, who after his resignation in 1294 would have liked to return to being a hermit, becoming instead a prisoner of his successor, Boniface VIII (to whom today in the Church we owe the establishment of jubilee years). To date, in fact, there has never been a step like that taken by Benedict XVI. So it is not surprising that it has been seen by some as revolutionary, or to the contrary as entirely consistent with the Gospel; while still others see the papacy in this way secularized as never before, and thus more collegial and functional or even simply more human and less sacred. And still others are of the opinion that Benedict XVI, with this step, has almost — speaking in theological and historical-critical terms — demythologized the papacy.
Now, let’s tie it all together with the famous quote from +Fulton Sheen on the Antichrist and the Antichurch:
That’s the key, right there. That is why the words “munus” and “ministerium” matter so very much. In the context of the Papacy, the OFFICE is DIVINELY INSTITUTED and is protected by a specific and unique SUPERNATURAL GRACE.
Now, think about the Antichurch. The Antichurch, by definition is NOT Divinely instituted – it is exactly the opposite, it is set up by satan. Therefore, the Antichurch will contain NO DIVINELY INSTITUTED OFFICES, only man-made “ministries”, including its visible head or heads – its Antipope/s.
Pope Benedict XVI went out of his way to say he was NOT resigning the Petrine OFFICE, but only the “active ministry”. +Ganswein confirms this repeatedly and in no uncertain terms above.
Now we have Antipope Bergoglio, who EVERY DAY has even the “elect” denying the GRACE OF STATE and UNIQUE SUPERNATURAL PROTECTION of the Papacy, because that is the only way they can hold the false premise of Bergoglio being the Pope, which they are for various and sundry reasons desperate to do. (Ahem, MONEY, ahem, careerism, ahem, EFFEMINACY)
So, what has happened over the past almost six years, is that the entire world, including the so-called “elect” have become completely desensitized to and even vicious partisans and defenders of the false notion of a “papacy” devoid of any supernatural grace. DEMYTHOLOGIZATION!!
In other words, the pump has been totally primed for the full manifestation of the graceless, satanically instituted Antichurch with “even the Elect” merrily skipping into it, and congratulating themselves as they go for their “theological sophistication and dazzlingly humble submission to authority”.
Anyone who DARES point out that Antipope Bergoglio CLEARLY, OBVIOUSLY does NOT enjoy the GRACE OF STATE promised by Christ Himself to the Petrine OFFICE, ius divinum, is browbeaten, gaslighted, calumniated – whatever. Every time you read a so-called “Trad Catholic” talking head arguing that Antipope Bergoglio is “in bounds”, “totally within historical precedent” and that “maybe Vatican I was wrong” and that having faith in the supernatural protection and grace of state attached to the PETRINE OFFICE, which, remember, Pope Benedict went out of his way to NOT resign, is some sort of manifestation of stupidity, insanity, affective immaturity or “hyper-Uber-ultramontanism”, realize what is going on. +Fulton Sheen nailed it. Everything in the Antichurch MUST be devoid of Divine content. Including its head/s. But we know that many of the “elect” will be deceived by it. Thus, the “elect” MUST come to accept a thing they wrongly call “the papacy” that is totally devoid of supernatural grace, and not only that, but ACTIVELY REJECT THE TRUE POPE.
Now, to news that broke just the other day: Antipope Bergoglio is looking to dissolve the Papal Household/Papal Court. Of course he is. Because this is all part of the satanic pogrom of trying to convince the world that the PETRINE OFFICE, a DIVINELY INSTITUTED AND SUPERNATURALLY PROTECTED MONARCHICAL OFFICE no longer exists. Only a “synodal ministry”.
Except it does exist, and will continue to exist. No matter what they try to do.
St. Peter, pray for us.
