I have received emails from very kind readers expressing exasperation that, according to Voris and Church Militant, people are now “starting” to discuss the possibility that Bergoglio is, in fact, an Antipope, per the post immediately below. Very kind readers are frustrated that I (and others) are not being “credited” with researching and explaining the mountain of Canon Law and observable evidence demonstrating the invalidity of Pope Benedict’s attempted partial abdication in February ARSH 2013, and the subsequent Bergoglian Antipapacy.
This brings up a great point. Folks, speaking for myself, I DO NOT CARE A WHIT if I get any “credit” for anything with regards to exposing the Bergoglian Antipapacy. I’m not doing this for any personal glory – God knows. I don’t care if others get credit and I get zero. ALL THAT MATTERS IS GETTING THE TRUTH OUT, AND PREVENTING AS MANY PEOPLE AS POSSIBLE FROM BEING SCANDALIZED AND/OR DECEIVED BY THE BERGOGLIAN ANTIPAPACY. I’m just glad that invalidity is being discussed. This is a step forward. Praise God.
Folks, rest assured that we are all – every one us – going to get FULL CREDIT for everything we do (and don’t do) in this mortal coil. It’s called THE GENERAL JUDGMENT. And the thought of it should cause every one of us to fear and tremble, as St. Paul put it. Every deed, for good or ill, will be exposed, and Our Lord will judge all. Any good that I might do in my life, in this or any other context, will eventually be credited to me by Christ Himself, but I really don’t care much about that right now. What occupies my thoughts, and should occupy everyone’s thoughts, is being credited with the evil that we do and the sins we commit, both sins of commission and sins of omission. If you are spending any time worrying about “getting credit” from men for “good deeds” or “accomplishments” in this world, your eye is on the wrong ball. BIG TIME.
In the Lord’s Prayer, there is no petition for “getting credit” for good deeds, but there is a petition for HAVING OUR DEBTS FORGIVEN, AS WE FORGIVE OUR DEBTORS. Worry about your debts, and have faith in Our Lord’s justice and goodness with regards to any possible “credits”. But Our Lord made crystal clear that one should have ZERO expectation of ANY “credit” in this world. Quite the opposite, in fact. So, don’t self-sabotage by expecting any “worldly credit” for anything.
And so, we continue, without any thought of, much less demand for “credit”. All that matters is getting the truth out, and helping prevent scandal. If we are thinking about and even angrily demanding to receive a laurel crown while we are still running the race, and are yet FAR from the finish line, we are doomed. For now, just run the race. One foot in front of the other. Forgive us our debts….
