GUEST POST: “The Perverse Opinions of Those Who Distort the Form of Government Established by Christ the Lord in His Church”

The following is a guest post by Mr. Mark Docherty of the NonVeniPacem Blog.

“At open variance with this clear doctrine of Holy Scripture are the perverse opinions of those who distort the form of government established by Christ the Lord in His Church”

Note well the two-pronged attack on error, via proper Authority and Jurisdiction, woven throughout this quote:

“We therefore teach and declare that, according to the testimony of the Gospel, the primacy of jurisdiction over the universal Church of God was immediately and directly promised and given to Blessed Peter the Apostle by Christ the Lord.

“For it was to Simon alone, to whom he had already said, “You shall be called Cephas” (John 1:42), that the Lord, after the confession made by him, saying, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God”, addressed these solemn words: “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah. For flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but my Father, who is in heaven. And I say to you, that you are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my Church, and the gates of Hell shall not prevail against it. And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven. And whatever you shall bind on earth shall be bound, even in heaven. And whatever you shall release on earth shall be released, even in heaven.” (Mt 16:16-19).

“And it was upon Simon alone that Jesus, after His Resurrection, bestowed the jurisdiction of Chief Pastor and Ruler over all His fold, by the words: “Feed my lambs. Feed my sheep.” (John 21:15-17).

“At open variance with this clear doctrine of Holy Scripture, as it has ever been understood by the Catholic Church, are the perverse opinions of those who, while they distort the form of government established by Christ the Lord in His Church, deny that Peter, in his single person, preferably to all the other Apostles, whether taken separately or together, was endowed by Christ with a true and proper primacy of jurisdiction; or of those who assert that the same primacy was not bestowed immediately and directly upon Blessed Peter himself, but upon the Church, and through the Church on Peter as her Minister.

If anyone, therefore, shall say that Blessed Peter the Apostle was not appointed the Prince of all the Apostles and the visible Head of the whole Church Militant; or that the same, directly and immediately, received from the same, Our Lord Jesus Christ, a primacy of honor only, and not of true and proper jurisdiction; let him be anathema.
Pope Pius IX, PASTOR AETERNUS, 18 July 1870

What can we learn from this?

-Pio Nono was never vague or squishy

-The form of government of the Church, and the primacy of juridical and jurisdictional authority of the Church, was dictated by Christ Himself

-Since it was established by God Himself, it is immutable; not to be messed with in any way, no matter what the majority of 1960s German theologians thought HERE

-The Papacy was then, is now, and ever shall be until the consummation of the world, a Divinely Instituted Monarchy with full and universal power

-The transfer of the keys is conferred directly from Christ to Peter and to his successors (not through the cardinals, not upon the Church, nor through the Church to Peter… if at one time this seemed like a distinction without consequence, recent events have borne out its extreme importance)

-Yes, the Cardinals have the authority to elect a new pontiff, provided that the See is vacant (ahem, canon 359). But even if the See is indeed vacant and they validly elect a new pontiff, the papacy is bestowed upon the new pope directly by Christ Himself, not by the Cardinals, and not by the Church.

Let’s assume for a moment for the sake of argument that the 2013 “conclave and election” were valid, in the sense that Benedict’s failed partial abdication was not at issue. Let’s say the Cardinal electors followed all the rules, and voted legitimately. But the man they elected is an arch-heretic Marxist masonic non-Catholic, avowed enemy of the faith, who operates only in the material, non-supernatural realm of politics, economics, sociology, and ecology, extolling mankind to strive towards an earthly utopia as the ultimate good.

If that were to happen, is Christ really bound to confer the crown? While we have had awful, immoral, degenerate popes in the past, we have never, ever had a man like this one-world government, one-world religion poseur, squatting on the Chair of St. Peter. Never.

Think about this.

Now if the election/conclave were invalid, or in fact was not merely invalid, due to some procedural violations of UDG 81/82, but did not even take place, what would that mean? Would Christ transfer the keys to a man who was faux-elected in a faux-conclave that didn’t really take place? We are talking about ontological reality, not appearances. Sometimes appearances have nothing to do with reality, because as we learned, “An act of deception, no matter how cleverly conceived or convincingly executed, cannot change the objective reality of a given situation” HERE.

So if someone were to tell you that “the Church” has the power to grant or deny the papal office out of some majority opinion, or even super-majority opinion, or even “Universal Acceptance,” they would go against settled doctrine, and it would mean any pope could be deposed by mob rule.

If then they say that the super-majority (it’s certainly not “universal acceptance”) didn’t directly CAUSE the “resignation” to be valid nor CAUSE the subsequent “election” to be valid, but rather they invert the premise and say that the visible existence of the super-majority, while not causal, is in fact the PROOF SET of God accepting and acting, well then they would be claiming that the will of men forces the hand of God. God has NO CHOICE, and must act in accord with mob rule. Either this, or else they would have to claim that no no no, God accepts and acts on his own, of course, but then imposes His decision onto the minds of the super-majority, overriding their individual free will, and thus forcing the result of Universal Acceptance, in some sort of divine brainwashing.

These are circular arguments within circular arguments.

Note well, canon 332.2 is not a general norm, nor some kind of obscure/arcane law, but rather deals precisely with the occasion of a pope choosing to resign, and the required conditions for the validly of the resignation.

The majority of the Catholic world is operating as if this canon does not exist or does not matter:

Can. 332§2. If it happens that the Roman Pontiff resigns his office, it is required for validity that the resignation is made freely and properly manifested but not that it is accepted by anyone.

This tells us that:

-A papal abdication depends upon the free and proper manifestation of the resignation itself.

-The Cardinals have no authority to “accept” said resignation – their acceptance or rejection of the resignation has zero bearing the on the ontological reality of its validity; rather, its validity depends on it being freely and properly manifested. Christ is the arbiter, and Christ has bound Himself to the Law specifically to preclude the possibility of an “unknowable chaos” and guarantee the visibility of the Church, including at its earthly head.

We also have canon 188 fully in play in this matter, as there is a mountain of evidence that Benedict intended to create, and today believes he is participating in, an “Expanded Petrine Ministry,” which would be a most colossal “substantial error:”

Can. 188. A resignation made out of grave fear that is inflicted unjustly or out of malice, substantial error, or simony is invalid by the law itself.

So again, if someone claims that “universal acceptance” of the election by the Cardinals, or even by the whole Church, guarantees both the acceptance of the election AND the acceptance of the antecedent resignation, remind them of a couple things:

-Whatever his reasons, Pope Benedict did not resign the Munus in his Latin Declaratio

-Pope Benedict (in his mind) created, defined, and executed his future role, which should have been at the sole discretion of the new Supreme Pontiff, had one actually been elected

-“Pope Emeritus” is not a real thing, is not provided for anywhere in canon law, and is an impossibility: When a bishop retires his office and becomes an ‘emeritus’ per can. 402.1, he becomes bishop emeritus of his diocese precisely because he remains a bishop but without the office… one cannot “remain pope” without the office

Benedict demonstrates his continued pontifical duties in various ways, including writing books and granting interviews, refusing to live in seclusion, imparting “MY Apostolic Blessing”, addressed as His Holiness, continuing to sign correspondence “HHPBXVI,” wearing the papal garb (because ahem “no other clothes were available”), prevented the fisherman’s ring from being destroyed, newly minted Cardinals are brought before him for his blessing…

-Benedict testified numerous times about his belief in the indelible nature of accepting the papacy, once pope always pope, that he is not fleeing but remaining “in a new way” in the enclosure of St. Peter, to fulfill the “essential spiritual nature” of the papacy as its contemplative participant, while delegating the governance aspect to the active participant

-All of the above point to an invalid non-resignation of the Munus per can. 332.2, and by “substantial error” per can. 188, and subsequently a “conclave” and “election” in March of 2013 that never happened. This is not a conspiracy theory, it’s not crazy, it’s not schismatic. It’s the truth.

I (Mark Docherty) don’t have a degree in canon law, nor any advanced degrees of any kind. I have a diploma from a public high school and a B.S. in Food Marketing (from a Jesuit institution, no less… AMDG, y’all). But I can tell you this: Words have meaning; in the law, and in actions. That words are to be taken at face value, both in the law and in specific acts, is actually part of canon law (more to come on this). Everything presented here is done so according to the plain meaning of words, and you don’t need to be a genius to decipher it. Otherwise, it would be Gnosticism.

I’ll leave you with this little bit from the Catechism of the Catholic Church:

The Church’s ultimate trial

675 Before Christ’s second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers.574 The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth575 will unveil the “mystery of iniquity” in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth. The supreme religious deception is that of the Antichrist, a pseudo-messianism by which man glorifies himself in place of God and of his Messiah come in the flesh.576
676 The Antichrist’s deception already begins to take shape in the world every time the claim is made to realize within history that messianic hope which can only be realized beyond history through the eschatological judgment. The Church has rejected even modified forms of this falsification of the kingdom to come under the name of millenarianism,577 especially the “intrinsically perverse” political form of a secular messianism.578
677 The Church will enter the glory of the kingdom only through this final Passover, when she will follow her Lord in his death and Resurrection.579 The kingdom will be fulfilled, then, not by a historic triumph of the Church through a progressive ascendancy, but only by God’s victory over the final unleashing of evil, which will cause his Bride to come down from heaven.580 God’s triumph over the revolt of evil will take the form of the Last Judgment after the final cosmic upheaval of this passing world.581

The one about BRAVERY AND COWARDICE

Preface:
I originally wrote and posted this on March 29, ARSH 2010. This was fully a year before I went viral for the first time after my koran burning. I had a little bit of a non-agricultural readership, but nothing like now. I began screaming and yelling about politics and broad-market economics in ARSH 2008 when I saw that the U.S. was in the process of being overthrown, and lots of agricultural people thought I was nuts, and I doubtless turned a bunch of people off. That’s why I was getting emails from people advising me to watch my mouth and not “get myself crossways with the Powers That Be.”

Getting crossways with The Powers That Be was the making of me. Have I mentioned lately how happy I am in the Van Down By The (Second) River? God is good.

Read this until you get it. Unless and until you people man up and stop cowering in fear, unless and until you fully understand that the only way you can possibly win is being willing to lose everything, up to and including your life, the outcome is utterly certain: evil will triumph. You and your children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren will live and die under satanic totalitarian rule. Yes, Christ will win in the end, but as billions of human beings before you would happily remind you, Jesus Christ returning in glory to grease all of the bad guys before you die IS NOT A GIVEN.

Cowardice is a sin. Courage is a virtue. Man up and take care of business. For the love of God.

 ———————————–

“Ann,

Why do you write stuff and make videos like that? Why don’t you lay low? If this gets serious you’re going to be in big trouble. You might be in trouble already.”

Because bravery and cowardice are a zero-sum game. When a man cowers, he isn’t just merely shielding himself from danger and nothing more. What he is doing is shirking off on to some other man his share of bravery that justice demands. Because the good German people cowered and failed to stand up and stop what they clearly saw happening in the mid-to-late 1930s, their collective failure in courage cumulated and compounded. Where their failure in courage all eventually ended up was on the shoulders of these guys, 75 years ago today.

See how that works? Good will always prevail, but there is no limit to the amount of suffering that will be required for that victory to occur. If men stand up early on, the suffering will be minimized because it will be spread over many people. The worst that might happen is that some folks go to bed scared for a while, but widespread bravery will allow good to prevail without much suffering. If, however, there is a decided lack of courage displayed by a large group or society early on in an advance by the powers of evil, that aggregated courage requirement will be borne by a relative few at a later time. The longer this goes on, the worse it will be for the few who have to bear the weight of the cowardice of the broad society.

So, why am I so mouthy? Simply put, because I don’t want your son to end up sprawled on some city street with his legs blown off by a Marxist-Islamist-Freemasonic-Bergoglian RPG bleeding to death because he had to shoulder my personal failure in courage. Got it? That is all.

Reaffirmed in perpetuity,

Happy Update on the Praiseworthy Patristics Project to Ponder and Patronize!

Excellent news!  The Praiseworthy Patristics Project to Ponder and Patronize has raised enough funds to lock-in the project, and work has already begun!

As mentioned initially, the end product will be a high quality hardbound resource for commentaries on the Sunday Mass and Major Feast readings from the Patristic and Medieval Church Fathers. This resource would enable priests to develop homilies of depth and quality, returning to the vast catechetical treasury of the Fathers, so needed, and so largely, and catastrophically, ignored for over half a century now.

This volume, when finished, would make a great gift for priests and seminarians, and a fine addition to one’s parish or home library.

I can’t wait for the finished product.  I suspect it will sit on my shelf next to my collection of St. Alphonsus Liguori’s sermons.

YUUGE: Antipope Bergoglio Admits that Cardinals Specifically Tasked Him with Fulfilling Ultimate Freemasonic Goal of Eliminating the Papacy – the Last Monarchy

The goal and purpose of Freemasonry since its inception in London in ARSH 1717 has been the elimination of the Papacy, and then establishment of a dual-pronged One World Government and tandem One World Religion marketed under the name “Humanism.” Freemasons fomented, subsidized and profiteered off of almost every war in the Christian West with the goal of eliminating all monarchies, with the Papacy as the target. American Revolution, French Revolution, Italian Revolution, WWI, WWII.

The Papacy, instituted by Christ and unchangeable, is an Absolute Monarchy. In fact, it is totally unique in that it is a juridical office, in the form of an elected Absolute Monarchy which enjoys a Supernatural negative, “preventative” protection.

Here is the overlooked quote from Antipope Bergoglio from last week:

“The Vatican City State as a form of government, the Curia, whatever it is, is the last European court of an absolute monarchy. The last. The others are now constitutional monarchies, the court is diluted. Here there are still court structures that must fall,” he said.

“People want to reform. For example, the palace of Castel Gandolfo, which comes from a Roman emperor, restored in the Renaissance, today is no longer a papal palace, today it is a museum, it is all a museum,” he said.

Pope Francis (sic) said that it is not his reform, but something “the cardinals have requested.”

The scheme of the court is what has to disappear. And this was requested by all the cardinals, well, most, thanks be to God,” Pope Francis (sic) said.

As has been documented in this space, the discussion of “fundamentally transforming” the Papacy into a “collegial, synodal, shared ministry” has been discussed openly and at length for over 50 years, with the Miller Dissertation being a compendium of the discussion – a Rosetta Stone, if you will.

At the heart of this drive has been Cardinal Walter Kasper, who became the de facto leader of the Sankt Gallen Mafia with the death on August 30, ARSH 2012 of Cardinal Carlo Martini, the life-long enemy of Joseph Ratzinger, and openly-acknowledged “king maker” at the Cardinals Retreat and faux-conclave held in the Sistine Chapel March 10-13, ARSH 2013.

Chapter 8 of the Miller dissertation opens with a quote from Walter Kasper: “The present crisis of the Papacy is one of legitimation.” As in, the Papacy is no longer tenable in the modern, democratized world, and must be radically changed. This radical change, which would involve the dissolution of the Petrine Office in favor of a shared Petrine ministry or function, is also necessary in order to appease all schismatics, with Lutherans first among them, but also Anglicans, and even the Eastern Orthodox.

If any one man can be called Antipope Bergoglio’s puppetmaster, it is, without question, Walter Kasper.

The odious sacrilegious sodomite Bobby Mickens reported openly on this a few months ago. Papal resignation must become the expectation, the the monarchical Papacy must be totally eliminated- according to the enemies of Jesus Christ and his Holy Church.

I would add at this point that Antipope Bergoglio has become a massive liability to his LutherMasonSodomite handlers. He is widely seen as the protector and enabler of sodomite sex predators that he is, and has lost most of whatever good will he enjoyed just a year ago.

Unless Pope Benedict XVI is acknowledged as the one and only living Pope and the See occupied by him and him alone since April ARSH 2005, Antipope Bergoglio will be told to “resign”, another invalid, faux-conclave will be called (because Canon 359 clearly states that it is ontologically impossible for a valid conclave to be called while the See is occupied, no matter what) and then say hello to Antipope Tagle.

We have to get this right. Quickly.

Blessed Emperor Charles and Zita, pray for us.

Our Lady, undoer of knots, pray for us.

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on us.

WhatsItGonnaTake Episode #871,307. Antipope Bergoglio Calls Tradition “Ashes”.

Ashes:

More Ashes:

Here’s Pope St. Pius V and a bunch of other idiots rolling in ashes like so many pigs in slop.

Here’s Pope St. Gregory the Great and a bunch of other rigid integralists wallowing in ashes.

But remember, folks, Trad Inc., for whom Antipope Bergoglio is described over cocktails and boozy dinners in Trastevere as “great for business”, “subscriptions up, traffic up, donations up… this is the best thing that’s ever happened to us!”, MAY NOT BE QUESTIONED.

You can question infallible ecumenical councils that defined legit DOGMA, like, say, Vatican I – no prob. I mean, all the cool Trad Inc. kids are doing it, amirite?

You can spend all day every day tearing the divinely instituted and supernaturally guaranteed Papacy in se to absolute shreds, no worries. After all, all the Oxon toff convert priests are doing it, so it MUST be okay. Because over-educated British snobs have NEVER been wrong about ANYTHING. EVHUR.

But don’t you DARE so much as ASK THE QUESTION if maybe, perhaps, something ain’t right with “Francis”, what with his being a raging LutherMason who is, at absolute bare-bones minimum, the single biggest fag hag in human history, running around in a cheap polyester Halloween costume-grade white cassock while His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI, remaining “in a new way within the enclosure of St. Peter”, imparts “MY Apostolic blessing” from the Vatican.

Follow.

Money.

Pray for Pope Benedict XVI, because, as the man said, “é ancora Papa.”

Oh, dear. Confirmed: The English Title of Socci’s Book was Changed Against His Strenuous Objection.

It has been confirmed that Angelico Press changed the name of Antonio Socci’s book against his will from:

“The Secret of Pope Benedict XVI: Why He Is Still Pope” – a declarative statement, to:

“The Secret of Pope Benedict XVI: Is He Still the Pope?” – a question, which falsely paints Socci as “agnostic and ambivalent” on the validity of Pope Benedict’s attempted partial faux-resignation, when Socci is no such thing, and strenuously objected to the change, as did the translator of the book.

The publisher thought the book would “sell better” with the inaccurate, squishy, non-committal title. Truth, and justice to the author? Meh. Not a priority, so much. And so Angelico overrode Socci and the translator and changed the title.

In justice to Mr. Socci, in particular, it is a good thing that the objective truth is now being made public. It always comes out. It’s just a matter of when.

Pray for Pope Benedict XVI because, as Mr. Socci said, “é ancora Papa.”
