Barnhardt Podcast #080: A Lament for Notre Dame

[Direct link to the MP3 file]

In this episode we discuss the fire at the cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris and how this event is not only the loss of a magnificent artistic and cultural achievement but is oddly symbolic: the destruction of a church from within… from the top. Over a billion dollars have been pledged to rebuild the cathedral, but in a new way, with new materials, representing the “New France” — and the “new Church.” A melancholy episode during the week when we meditate on the passion of Christ and His Church.

Holy Thursday: The Office of Tenebrae Is Now A Recitation of Current Events

The liturgical highlight of my year is upon us: the Offices of Tenebrae in Holy Week.  Go to all three if you possibly, possibly can.

Every year, the Pslams, lessons, lamentations, responsories and Canticles leap off the page with stunning relevance.  He went through everything before us and for us.  Contempt.  Calumny. Kangaroo trials. The ascendancy of the wicked all around Him. And finally, and certainly worst, betrayal.

The Thursday Offices of Tenebrae, terrifyingly, read like a recitation of current events, with Antipope Bergoglio and his coven, to everyone’s horror but no one’s surprise, as Judas and the Temple priests and guards.

Here is the Responsory after the eighth lesson in the Third Nocturn of Matins for Holy Thursday, which hit me especially hard this year:

Could ye not watch one hour with Me, ye that were ready to die for me? Or see ye not Judas, how he sleepeth not, but maketh haste to betray Me to the Jews?  Why sleep ye? Arise and pray, lest ye enter into temptation.

Today’s point to ponder: While the Apostles dozed off, and couldn’t stay awake, JUDAS WAS WIDE AWAKE, AND EXTREMELY ACTIVE, SPEEDILY EXECUTING HIS PLAN TO BETRAY OUR LORD – BECAUSE OUR LORD’S EUCHARISTIC LOVE FOR US, BECAUSE IT IS SUPERNATURAL, EMBARRASSED JUDAS AND HIS PLANS FOR EARTHLY POWER AND POPULARITY.

Read John 6.  It is all right there. There is nothing new under the sun.

Agony. Agony. Agony. Judas, worst of the traffickers, approached the Lord with a kiss: He like an innocent lambrefused not the kiss of Judas; For a few pence he delivered Christ to the Jews. Agony. Agony. Agony.
Judas, worst of the traffickers, approached the Lord with a kiss: He like an innocent lamb refused not the kiss of Judas; For a few pence he delivered Christ to the Jews.

 

Spy Wednesday: The Proto-Doxxing

Remember, Judas didn’t betray Our Lord for the money.  He did it because Judas was so embarrassed and enraged by The Bread of Life Discourse (John Chapter 6) which concluded with a massive crowd, ready to make Jesus King – and thus Judas and the rest of the Apostles very powerful men of Jesus’ “court” – walking away in disgust calling Our Lord “crazy”. The embarrassment and loss of power which he was so close to grasping (he thought) drove him insane with anger, hatred and bitterness toward Our Lord that he resolved to bring about His murder.  And I’m sure in his mind he told himself that he was totally justified, and doing the world a favor.

“Eat His flesh and drink His blood?  What is that nut talking about?”

NOTHING incites hatred so much as embarrassment.  Judas, like such a high percentage of clerics and prelates today, hate Our Lord because they don’t believe in the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Eucharist, and are EMBARRASSED at any mention or indication of It.

In short, they don’t actually believe any of that “Catholic bulls***”.

 

 

Notre Dame Will Be Repaired at Taxpayer Expense, but as a “Shared Cultural Space”. And That Is How It Will Become a Mosque.

Notre Dame Will Be Repaired at Taxpayer Expense, but as a “Shared Cultural/Spiritual Space”. And That Is How It Will Become a Mosque.

This will be done with the FULL support and cooperation of Antipope Bergoglio and his coven occupying the Vatican.

The “repurposing” of Churches into “Shared Ecumenical Spaces” after the Notre Dame model will become all the rage, and will probably become legally mandated.  Fire nor earthquake needed.  Just the Compass and Square of Freemasonry under the sword of islam.

As someone else said and said well yesterday, God is JUST GETTING STARTED with France.  And it won’t stop with France.

PRAISE GOD, but KEEP PRAYING: Mr. Bob Quarteroni has seen a priest, and is in this priest’s care

Across the transom just now from the SSPX priest that made efforts to contact Mr. Quarteroni.

“It looks like the publicity has had some effect. It motivated the local priests to reach out to poor Bob.

One of my parishioners has been looking into the situation. Apparently the local parish priest has the matter in hand.”

“Act, and God will act.” –St. Joan of Arc

Persist.  Persevere.  Some of you emailed me with reports of your Novus Ordo priests refusing to get involved – one even trying to cite Canon Law and another (of course) citing Antipope Bergoglio’s rantings against “proselytism”.  Don’t despair.  Don’t lose hope.  Keep going!

Other human beings matter.  This is the Fruit of the Second Joyful Mystery of the Rosary – the Visitation.  FRATERNAL CHARITY.

OTHER.

HUMAN.

BEINGS.

MATTER.

Please, keep praying during this Holy Week for Mr. Quarteroni’s heart to be melted like wax, and that he receive the forgiveness, pardon and peace that Our Lord so desperately wants to give him.  And pray for the priests involved.

Our Lady, Assumed into Heaven, pray for us!
Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on us!

(By the way, this is the man you are praying for)

Reuters linked on Drudge Sub-headline: “Conservatives still see Benedict, not Francis, as Pope”

I post this only to show that it isn’t just “that seriously crazy Barnhardt and her three remaining schizo fanboys” that even countenance the notion that Pope Benedict is the Pope and “Francis” is an antipope.

Don’t fall for the gaslighting campaign that you are not only crazy, but crazy and ALONE in so much as even questioning Bergoglio’s legitimacy. Reuters wouldn’t have put that bullet point sub-headline there if it were just a handful of people raising the alarm.

No matter why Reuters wrote and published that bullet, even if was an attempt to smear “conservatives”, the fact is that today millions more people who do not live in Traddyland nor read any “Trad, Inc.” sites have now been exposed to the idea that a non-trivial number of people recognize Pope Benedict as still being the Pope and Bergoglio an antipope.

That is all.

Letter From an Absentee Father to His Children

(This is a repost by request from ARSH 2017. Pay close attention to the text in bold, and then be sure to read the update at the bottom. It is hopeful.)

Dear Children,

It has been over four years since I abandoned you and declared myself your “father emeritus”, but I wanted to write this letter to you in the hopes that it would console you.  As I said when I was walking out the door, I have not ceased to be your father, I have just chosen to only be your father in the passive, contemplative, inactive, absentee sense. After all, who is to say how many “fathers” a child can have?  What’s important is not who is or is not your father, but rather what fatherhood MEANS.  Fatherhood for me means withdrawing from the active duties of fatherhood while maintaining the spiritual aspect, and in doing this, stepping aside and making way for another man to become your “active father”.  In doing this, I have expanded fatherhood, thus permanently transforming fatherhood into a collegial, synodal paradigm. At least, that is what I tell myself.

I want you to know that I am fully aware that since I abandoned Your Mother and all of you, that a raging psychopath calling himself your “active father”  has moved into your house and is now raping and beating Your Mother before your eyes on a daily basis. I am also aware that he is beating you, emotionally abusing you, poisoning you, and is exposing you to his cabal of friends, almost all of whom are sodomites/boy rapists.

I want you to know that I am aware of this, and assure you of my closeness to you in prayer.  I hope this consoles you.

Further, I want you to know that things are going to get much, much worse.  Don’t ask me how I know this.  Let’s just say that when I was still your Active Father, I … was made privy to certain… secrets.

The psychopath and his sodomite/boy raping friends are going to rape and beat Your Mother so badly that it will literally require a supernatural miracle to save her life.  She will not die, but she will be raped and beaten unto death.  All of this will be done before your very eyes.  In fact, the psychopath and his sodomite gang will luxuriate in the fact that you, the children, will see this happen.

As for you, my dear, dear children, many of you will not survive this.  You will be beaten, berated, poisoned and some of you will also be raped.  For many of you, this abuse and terror will be so intense that you will abandon Your Mother and commit de facto suicide.  Others of you will turn into exactly the same kind of psychopathic monsters as your “active father” and his gang.  The only promise I can make to you is that at least ONE of you will survive.  It is possible that ALL BUT ONE of you, my children, will be lost.

But take heart!  I am aware of what is happening to you, and I am close to you in prayer.

Now, you may be wondering why it is that I don’t call the police, notify someone, or take any action against the psychopath that is raping and beating Your Mother, and trying as hard as he can to kill all of you.

This is rather difficult to explain, and even more difficult to write, but I will try to explain it simply.  You see, while I am completely responsible for abandoning you, I am also largely responsible for creating the psychopath that is now calling himself your “active father”, all of his sodomite/boy raping gang, and the entire matrix within which they subsist.

In order for me to help you, I would have to admit that not only did I make a terrible, terrible mistake – in fact, in Law it is called a “SUBSTANTIAL ERROR”, but I would also have to admit that my entire adult life, going back at least 55 years now, was built upon a completely erroneous and false worldview even down to the level of metaphysics.  While I would never do the things that the psychopath who calls himself your “active father” is doing to Your Mother or to any of you children, I did work very hard years ago to create the environment of which he and his gang are a direct product.  And then, four years ago, I ran away to be your “father emeritus” and left the door standing wide open, and the psychopath and his gang walked into Our Family Home, and began their program of systematic rape and murder.

Now, kids, I love you, but I’m sure you understand that I simply cannot admit to any of these mistakes, no matter how glaringly obvious they are, and no matter how badly all of you and Your Mother are hurt by them.  To say that my entire adult life and work has been not just merely erroneous, but has been, quite possibly, the most catastrophic thing ever to happen to Our Family is simply impossible.  No one could expect me to humiliate myself like that, and nothing is worth that kind of humiliation.  Nothing.  I’m sure you all understand the position I am in.  This is why I can’t say anything, much less call the police or alert any of your uncles.  Not that alerting your uncles would help – there are only a handful left that aren’t in the psychopath’s gang, and all of your good uncles are effeminate and no good in a fight anyway. Very much like me.

I hope that while Your Mother is being raped and beaten unto death, and you yourselves are picked-off one by one, that you will be consoled knowing that I have been saved any public humiliation, and, I repeat, that I am fully aware of what is happening to you, and that I am close to you in prayer.

My advice is, appease the psychopath that calls himself your “active father”, and maybe he will kill you last. That’s what I am going to do.

Pray for me, and be consoled by my awareness of what is happening to you and my closeness to you in prayer-

Your “Contemplative Father Emeritus” (at least that’s what I call myself)

Pope Benedict XVI Ratzinger, the one and only living Pope, and by far the worst Pope in history.

 

UPDATE:

After reading and re-reading Pope Benedict’s Apostolic Letter, I must add this postscript, and do so happily. Pope Benedict said,

“What must be done? Perhaps we should create another Church for things to work out? Well, that experiment has already been undertaken and has already failed.

I dare say that this could be the first step in Joseph Aloysius Ratzinger coming to grips with Vatican II and His culpability therein. If so, it is a glorious leap forward for the Pope and the Church, Ratzinger himself being so deeply tied to the Council, to admit its failure. Some will say, “He is talking about Protestantism.” Don’t be so sure. I don’t think he would refer to the Lutheran revolt and schism as an “experiment”. The Holy Ghost is afoot. Stay hopeful! Pray for Pope Benedict! He has so few people left that don’t hate him, or are aggressively indifferent to him.
