Here’s your Uvalde School District police chief. If I didn’t know better, I’d say that was the face of a popular and ambitious young priest in the Roman Queeria. He’s got the “come hither, Monsignore” pinched-lip smirk down pat.

I’ve seen more than enough of these pinched-lipped smirks in men to be … triggered. Nahmsayin?

This evil POS gave the order to “stand down”.

On a totally unrelated note, have you guys noticed how many sex perverts there are in the FBI? And how the FBI clearly and undeniably protects and cultivates sex perverts?

He said it would happen… and it is.

And because iniquity hath abounded, the charity of many shall grow cold.

Et quoniam abundavit iniquitas, refrigescet caritas multorum.

Happy (Bumped) Feast of St. Philip Neri!

Since yesterday, May 26th, St. Philip’s Feast Day, was also the great Feast of the Ascension this year, St. Philip got bumped to today, and in certain places his Mass could be said instead of St. Bede. I was able to hear a St. Philip Mass today, which was really cool.

Thank you, again, for everything, don Fili.

Cast yourself into the arms of God and be very sure that if he wants anything of you, He will fit you for the work and give you strength.

How did a totally impoverished drop-out of ambiguous sexuality who couldn’t hold a job as mop boy at Wendy’s buy $5000 worth of rifles and holographic sights?

On a totally unrelated topic, have you guys noticed how many sex perverts there are in the FBI? And in Federal “law enforcement” in general? It’s weird.

Nice lip gloss. $5000 if it’s a penny. 👆🏻

Anyway, the EOTech holographic sight alone is $800 or so, plus installation.

The question IS NOT “how did he get guns?” He bought them.

The question is, WHERE DID HE GET THE MONEY?

Question-Suggestion: Are there homeschooling resources and products for dual-mother tongue (English-Spanish) kids…?

…because I suspect interest in homeschooling among Latino parents in the former U.S. is going to surge. If children already speak Spanish, they should learn Spanish grammar and literature in addition to English in their homeschooling environments.

Are there homeschooling curricula for Bilingual kids?

If not, SOMEONE SHOULD JUMP ALL OVER THAT, because people are going to be asking for it.

Toes and Footprints… and HOPE.

The Ascension, Master of the Heisterbacher Altar with Stefan Lochner, ARSH 1440, Bamberg, Staatsgalerie

Today is the Feast of the Ascension, 40 days after Easter.  I love the images of the Ascension in which only Our Lord’s toes are shown as He zooms up to Heaven.  Some images show Our Lord’s footprints remaining on the Mount of Olives, as does the image above.  I also love how the stunned awe of the Apostles is captured in their faces in this altarpiece, especially the Apostle in green on the left.

There is an excellent and exhaustive blog post dedicated to Toes and Footprints HERE, which I recommend.

The Ascension is the Second Glorious Mystery of the Rosary, and the fruit of this mystery is HOPE. In these dark days, we need all the hope we can muster. And then some.

Remember the Toes!

Happy Feast!

The Papacy Is…

You HAVE read J. Michael Miller’s ARSH 1979 dissertation, “The Divine Right of the Papacy in Recent Ecumenical Theology” of course, HAVEN’T YOU?  It is a Rosetta Stone-esque synthesis of the massive Teutonic Theological Academy’s writings in the mid-20th century on the “need” to “fundamentally transform” the irrelevant, illegitimate and expired Monarchical model of the Papacy by essentially dissolving the Petrine Office into a collegial, synodal Petrine Ministry or Function.  Why?  To appease the Lutherans (and Anglicans to a lesser degree) of course! And to conform the Papacy to the new, modern, democratized world!

And also, if we’re going to be perfectly blunt, because the Freemasons need the Papacy destroyed in order to bring their “one world religion” and one world government, together referred to as the “New World Order”, to fruition.  The number one target of the Freemasons since their formation in London in ARSH 1717 has been the Papacy.  All wars and revolutions instigated by Freemasonry over the past 300 years have had as a key objective the elimination of monarchy from the face of the earth, precisely as a stepping stone to the REAL GOAL of eliminating the Papacy. American Revolution. French Revolution. Italian Revolution. World War I.  Etc.

Perhaps it would help to define some terms.  So, some definitions, just for those who might not have actually read or watched anything I have presented on the topic of the Bergoglian Antipapacy, but are reading this:

THE PAPACY IS IRREVERSIBLE:  This means that the Papacy can not be ABOLISHED.  In reading the Miller dissertation, and then the rest of the Teutonic Academic writings of the late 20th century, one sees the argumentation of the far-left, with Hans Kung and Johannes Neumann at Tubingen in the 1960s (contemporaneously with Ratzinger) at the forefront, that the Papacy could and should be ABOLISHED ENTIRELY, that the Papacy is “reversible”.  The total abolition (reversal) of the Papacy is what the question of Irreversibilty addresses.  It has NOTHING to do with Papal resignations. Relative “moderates” such as Walter Kasper and Karl Rahner argued that total abolition would be too aggressive a play, and that the Papacy should rather be “demythologized” by being gradually essentially dissolved from an Office into a broad collegial synodal ministry, which is essentially the Lutheran model.  This is referred to as the Hypothesis of Dissolution.

THE PAPACY IS IMMUTABLE:  This means that the Papacy cannot be changed from the Monarchical form established by Jesus Christ Himself.  The Teutonic Theological Academy of the late 20th century from Walter Kasper to Karl Rahner to Joseph Ratzinger broadly agreed that the Papacy was mutable, that is, CHANGEABLE, and should be changed to “update” it and make it “relevant to a modern, democratized world” and to appease schismatics.  This error of “demythologization” is the soil from which Pope Benedict XVI Ratzinger’s Substantial Error of February ARSH 2013 grew, and is how it came to pass that he proffered an attempted PARTIAL resignation with the intention of “fundamentally transforming the Petrine Office into a collegial, synodal, shared ministry consisting of an active member and a passive, contemplative member”, which thus rendered the attempt invalid by the law itself per Canon 188, thus resulting in the See never being vacated.  Thus, per Canon 332.2 which states that the College of Cardinals have NO AUTHORITY with regards to Papal Resignations, the only determiner of validity being Canon Law itself, a completely invalid, non-canonical, UNREAL, faux-conclave was what what was convened in March of ARSH 2013, and spewed forth from its deepest bowels Antipope Jorge Mario Bergoglio.

Petrine OFFICE:  The Petrine Office (munus) is a state of BEING.  Joseph Ratzinger IS the Pope.  George Washington WAS the first President of the United States.  When Queen Elizabeth dies, Price Charles WILL BE the King of England.  In order to resign an OFFICE, one must resign BEING the Officeholder.  One cannot resign an Office by declaring that one will no longer exercise a specific activity that derives from that Office.  One cannot resign the Presidency by declaring that one will no longer exercise the duties of Commander in Chief, but will continue to come to the White House every day, be called “Mr. President”, deliver the State of the Union address, and issue Presidential pardons.

Petrine MINISTRY: The Petrine Ministry (ministerium) is a collection of ACTIVITIES that are derivative of the Petrine Office.  The exercise of the Petrine Ministry (sometimes called “Petrine FUNCTION” by the Teutonic Theological Academy) is NOT required in order to hold the Petrine Office.  We know this from logic, because a man who is stricken with illness (as most men are at the end of life), in a coma (as Pope JPII was in the hours after he was shot), or imprisoned (as numerous Popes have been) and are thus totally incapable of carrying out the MINISTERIAL ACTIVITIES of the Papacy, such as teaching, legislating, adjudicating and presiding, DO NOT LOSE THEIR OFFICE.  It is impossible – IMPOSSIBLE – to argue honestly that “Office” and “Ministry” are synonymous, MOST ESPECIALLY IN THE LEGAL SENSE, because the two words belong to two completely different categories: BEING (office), and DOING (ministry).  This is why Canon 332.2 explicitly states that a Papal resignation MUST resign the MUNUS, which is at its root simply a recapitulation of the Natural Law (aka COMMON SENSE). Saying, “I’m not going to answer the phone anymore, I’ll stand aside so someone else can do that, but I’ll still be here…” is NOT resigning. In the case of the Papacy, no valid resignation, NO VALID CONCLAVE POSSIBLE. Period.

I hope this helps.

A much-needed respite. Men chanting a Marian Antiphon in a gorgeous Italian church, with an “Old Roman” drone. Heaven sounds like this…

Longtime readers of this space know, and most agree, that “Old Roman” chant with that SUBLIME drone underneath is one of my favorite things, and should be revived. Immediately. We have the ability. Talk about “reform”.

Many people say that it sounds… almost muslim, except it is consonant (good), not dissonant (hellish). Musloid screeching is hellishly dissonant. For a reason. What people then soon realize is that the musloids STOLE and then PERVERTED true pious chant into their satanic dissonant screeching from the Old Roman chant they heard first in South-Central and South-West Europe.

Here is the Orbis Factor troped Kyrie.

And HERE is one of the more edifying things I’ve seen recently. This is just hours old… So heavenly….

NonVeni Crosspost: Jesus doesn’t require any “secret codes” for men to be saved. The Church is VISIBLE, including at her Earthly Head.

NonVeni Mark hit one out of the park answering common questions about Pope Benedict’s substantial error. It’s so good I’m cross-posting it in full.

I’m reminded after reading this of the so-called “Siri Thesis”, in which some sedevacantists today hold that Cardinal Giuseppe Siri was elected and became Pope in ARSH 1958 at the conclave following the death of Pope Pius XII, but was forced out by Freemasons, and thus ++Siri was the “hidden Pope” until his death in ARSH 1989.  The problem with this is obvious: If ++Siri were the Pope “in pectore” and he never said one word to anyone, including before or immediately after his death through a last testament, that would make ++Siri a moral monster, subjecting the Church to FOUR Antipopes (John XXIII, Paul VI, JPI, JPII). This is madness, and the smearing of the character of a very holy man. Just think how selfish, cowardly and effeminate ++Siri would have had to have been to commit such an act of violence against Holy Mother Church and the Papacy.

In the same vein, trying to delude oneself into thinking that Pope Benedict is playing some monstrous game of 15-D underwater chess crossed with Pink Slip Chicken at the proverbial quarry, is not only wrong, but assumes a moral monstrosity on the part of Pope Benedict that would be right up there with Judas Iscariot.

Substantial Error on Pope Benedict’s part is by far the most charitable motive, and the most clearly visible. Coercion, which may well be in play as we all suspect, would still require a cowardice and a fear of martyrdom on Pope Benedict’s part, which may or may not be true. “Pray for me that I not flee for fear of the wolves.”

Here is Mark’s piece, in full. Pay special attention to the point about the heresy of GNOSTICISM, that is, the notion that salvation requires some sort of secret knowledge or code which only a self-proclaimed “elite” have access to.  No. Our Lord doesn’t play those sorts of morally revolting games. Put another way, Jesus Christ isn’t a jerk. EVERY PERSON is loved by Him infinitely, and He wills the salvation of EVERY human being. “Secret Codes” with regards to His One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church, outside of which THERE IS NO SALVATION, is internally contradictory. The Church cannot be both VISIBLE as the synthesis of her four marks (One, Holy Catholic and Apostolic), and simultaneously INVISIBLE, requiring a secret code, held by an imagined “elite” to see. The Church is always HIGHLY VISIBLE, including at her earthly head, perhaps even most especially when she is in ECLIPSE. Eclipses are terrifyingly visible.

I’ll conclude with a comment left by longtime reader and fellow devotee to Our Lady under her title of “Virgin of Revelation“, Debbie:

Thank you Mark. This makes much more sense to me, as I too wanted Pope Benedict to be playing “15 dimensional chess”. It seemed to me to be the kinder and more charitable position. But in reality it is not….it’s deceptive as you point out. It is GOD who will use BXVI’s substantial error to play 15 dimensional chess.


Four Questions for the BiP crowd who maintain Benedict knew what he was doing, did it on purpose, and remains the only true pope with his own full knowledge and consent

 

The “full knowledge and consent” part will become important, gravely important, in a moment. First, a few words of introduction.

In this post, we address those commentators who believe with moral certitude that Benedict is still the one true pope, but profess against the Substantial Error theory of Benedict’s invalid resignation. These include Estefania Acosta, Patrick Coffin, and Andrea Cionci. While they all 100% see Benedict’s resignation as invalid, or they might say not even attempted, and hence, Bergoglio was never pope, their theory is that the invalidating act was executed by Pope Benedict on purpose, in order to protect the Church and the papacy from the ascendant anti-church. With forces rapidly closing in, Benedict, in a masterstroke of Teutonic brilliance, pulled off the switcheroo right under everyone’s noses, using code words, subtle phrasing, and delaying its effect for 17 days but then letting that 17th day pass without ever signing anything. He modeled all this on a strategy built centuries ago by European monarchs to protect their thrones via feigned regency. Benedict knew what he was doing, it has nothing to do with an imagined Expanded Petrine Ministry. He intended to retain the full papacy, to declare the Seat “impeded,” and this is in fact (and in law) what he did. If my summary of their position is inadequate, I am open to correction.

I have attempted private communications on this and have found the responses lacking. There have since been several essays made public, so I’m not breaching any confidences. Most recently, Coffin published the English translation of Cionci’s open letter to Ann Barnhardt and Dr. Mazza. I greatly respect everyone in this fight who come to it with integrity. I will fully admit to being wrong if my questions can be answered in an orthodox way, but also in a way that fits with the evidence at hand. What we cannot accept is circular reasoning or “begging the question…” We cannot allow answers like “your assertion is obviously incorrect because my base premise is the true one.” I am not here to attack anyone, I am here to attack arguments. Actually, I’m not really even offering counter-arguments, because we are in mutual agreement on so much of the evidence at hand. I’m simply pointing out the logical consequences, if their arguments and conclusions are correct. So let us begin.

 

Question One: If Pope Benedict executed his non-resignation (grave matter) with full knowledge and full intent, how is it that he is not in a state of mortal sin for doing so? The three conditions have been met (grave matter, full knowledge, full assent of the will). A valid pontiff, crowned by Christ himself, executes one of the greatest deceptions in the history of the Church, and he is a brilliant strategist for doing so? How can that be? While God can and does allow good to come out of evil, God never condones the doing of evil in the hope of a good outcome. God doesn’t do “the ends justify the means,” ever. And while Pope Benedict could have theoretically gone to Confession the evening of 28 Feb 2013, he could not have received valid absolution, because valid absolution requires a firm purpose of amendment, and in cases where the effect of certain sins can be rectified, then rectification is a necessary component of the penance. In which case he persists in mortal sin, NINE YEARS later. Which brings us to…

Question Two: If Pope Benedict executed his intentional grave deception in order to save the Church from the wolves, what then of the Faithful? Not a word from Benedict about the apostasy of his “successor” who all the world thinks is pope? This is the most grave mortal sin of SCANDAL. Benedict has willfully (according to their theory) lead a billion souls to believe a heretical, blaspheming, demon-worshiping apostate is the true pope of the One True Church. How many people have been led astray, accepted heresy and easy sin, and gone to their eternal reward in such condition? I will tell you how many: 70 MILLION. That’s how many Catholics have died in the last nine years, two months. Pope Benedict is (according to their theory) intentionally sitting by, petting his cat, knowing he is still the only true pope, knowing that Bergoglio is an antipope, perfectly happy to have 70 million souls going to their Particular Judgment thinking Bergoglio was pope and his magisterium authentic. If so, this is an awful test of God’s bounteous mercy, and it makes Benedict a monster.

Aside: I will admit, and this is damning with faint praise, but we do know Benedict Ratzinger is capable of deception. Why? Because it was Cardinal Ratzinger as head of the CDF who authorized the fake news text of the 13 May 2000 announcement by Cardinal Sodano of the true Third Secret of Fatima. A total deception, and one that curiously has direct implications into what we are discussing here. Funny that. There was also that time he claimed he was forced to continue wearing papal white because no other colors were available.

Question Three: What was it, exactly, that Benedict did actually resign (or intend to resign) when he read out the Declaratio? It is clear from the text that he intended to resign something, leaving aside the question of whether or not it was effective. In the key phrase of the document, he is clearly resigning, or intending to resign SOMETHING. Look at the English, look at the original Latin, or watch the video. “I renounce the ministry” … while we can argue whether or not the words took effect, we cannot claim he did not say those words. Canon Law demands that we respect the meaning of words, the context, and the mind of the legislator:

Can. 17. Ecclesiastical laws must be understood in accord with the proper meaning of the words considered in their text and context. If the meaning remains doubtful and obscure, recourse must be made to parallel places, if there are such, to the purpose and circumstances of the law, and to the mind of the legislator.

Question Four: Since Gnosticism is heresy, how are the faithful to approach the “Ratzinger Code” in an orthodox manner? The evidence for the Substantial Error theory is all out in full view for anyone to see, not just for those with eyes to see, if you know what I mean. We all agree on the visual evidence; a five year old could see it. We all know how Benedict’s further writings, and his words in the Seewald interviews, point to something other than what is commonly accepted, but that much is evident from the actual meaning of his words, not code words. Saying that the common lay faithful need access to a secret code to discern who is true pope seems… rather problematic. Implying that knowledge of this secret code is necessary to find and follow the true Church and achieve one’s salvation is… you see what I mean. So how to approach this in an orthodox manner?

Honest questions deserve honest answers.


I confess, I wanted this idea of intentional obfuscation to be true for quite some time, before the Code Theory even existed. I wanted Benedict to be the 15 dimensional chess player, the brilliant Bavarian who outsmarted all the traitors. But the practical consequences on the ground these nine years later are too much to bear. I will also admit, it is highly irregular and it does hold water that the day of 28 Feb 2013 came and went without Ratzinger actually signing anything before or after he got on the helicopter. Italian canonists were calling it out in real time. I see this as a third way he may have retained the papacy whole and entire.

Hold fast, folks. Things are happening.
