LOGIC: Universal Peaceful Acceptance MUST Proceed from a LAWFUL CONCLAVE. Legality is the REQUIRED ANTECEDENT to UPA.

As far as I can tell, the last remaining argument that Trad Inc. continues to make in arguing that Bergoglio is the Pope (aside from the rock-solid argument that I am both stupid and physically ugly – incredibly compelling arguments which I am admittedly unable to refute), is the concept of “Universal Peaceful Acceptance”.  Namely, the fact that a “moral unanimity” (as opposed to mathematical unanimity) of churchmen – the very same churchmen that Trad Inc. declares on a near-daily basis to be subscribers to A DIFFERENT RELIGION – accept Bergoglio as Pope IN AND OF ITSELF ratifies Bergoglio’s putative papacy on the level of “Infallible Dogma”.

The primary source for this is the Dominican theologian, John of St. Thomas.  John of St. Thomas was right – the problem is that Trad Inc. WILLFULLY edits out or glosses over the utterly essential antecedent that John of St. Thomas and every other commentator on the concept of “Universal Peaceful Acceptance” lay out – THE LEGALITY/LEGITIMACY OF THE ELECTION/CONCLAVE.

Folks, it’s a plain as the nose on your face.  Here is the John of St. Thomas quote:

“In the present controversy we discuss whether or not it is de fide that this specific person, who has been legitimately elected, is the Pope and the head of the Church, as well as the degree of certitude with which this proposition is to be held.”

Our conclusion is the following. It is immediately of divine faith that this man in particular, lawfully elected and accepted by the Church, is the supreme pontiff and the successor of Peter, not only quoad se (in himself) but also quoad nos (in relation to us) —although it is made much more manifest quoad nos (to us) when de facto the pope defines something. In practice, no Catholic disagrees with our conclusion [that his legitimacy is de fide], even though, when he considers it as a theoretical question, he might not think that he believes it with divine faith. (…)”

Once again, the inability of modern people to think in a logical, ordered way raises its ugly head.  The inability to identify which concept is an ANTECEDENT BASE PREMISE, and which concepts then PROCEED AS COROLLARIES FROM the antecedent base premise is, sadly, typical of modern man.  Logic stopped being taught in high school mathematics curricula in the early 1980’s, for all intents and purposes.

So, we have Trad Inc. arguing a CLEARLY inverted proposition, namely that Universal Peaceful Acceptance is the antecedent, and that LEGALITY and/or LEGITIMACY proceeds from UPA.

THIS IS OBVIOUSLY FALSE.  What should jump out at you about this inverted structure?  Well, clearly the election occurs BEFORE the ACCEPTANCE.  Something cannot, by logical definition, be ACCEPTED BEFORE IT EVEN HAPPENS.  Therefore, it is CLEARLY, OBVIOUSLY ERRONEOUS to hold the position that ACCEPTANCE is the ANTECEDENT BASE PREMISE, and that LAWFULNESS/LEGALITY PROCEEDS FROM ACCEPTANCE.

This is COMMON SENSE.  Truth is not a democracy.  The Papacy is bestowed DIRECTLY by Christ only when the man elected in a legally valid conclave ACCEPTS the Office, it is NOT bestowed by the College of Cardinals, nor even by The Church itself.

-Christ does NOT bestow the Petrine Office upon a man when the College of Cardinals LEGALLY AND LEGITIMATELY votes to elect him – Christ alone bestows the Office ONLY when the LEGALLY AND LEGITIMATELY elected man ACCEPTS.

-In the same logical vein, Christ does NOT bestow the Papacy upon a man that is ILLEGALLY, ILLEGITMATELY, NON-CANONICALLY ELECTED, no matter what the College of Cardinals or even the Church Militant “peacefully accepts”.  To argue such is to totally and completely upend reality itself, namely saying that LIES BECOME TRUE when enough people believe and accept them.  To argue that lies can become Truth by a consensus of men is a DIRECT ATTACK ON THE DIVINITY OF Jesus Christ, Who is Himself THE TRUTH.  The only way such arguments can come about is by inverting a logical progression, swapping a logical corollary with its antecedent base premise, thus yielding a truth table that spews satanic lies as “dogmatically infallible truth”.  John of St. Thomas did NOT argue this lie, he specifically identified LEGALITY as the antecedent base premise as clearly shown above, and it is a slander of this saintly and brilliant theologian to claim otherwise. 

-Likewise, Christ does NOT withdraw the Petrine Office from a man who does NOT LEGALLY RESIGN, NO MATTER WHAT THE COLLEGE OF CARDINALS OR CHURCH MILITANT “ACCEPTS”.  This is made crystal clear in Canon 332.2:

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.

And here is the Latin:

§ 2. Si contingat ut Romanus Pontifex muneri suo renuntiet, ad validitatem requiritur ut renuntiatio libere fiat et rite manifestetur, non vero ut a quopiam acceptetur.

So, if a putative papal resignation is LEGALLY INVALID, the Petrine See remains 100% occupied, and thus per Canon 359 the College of Cardinals has absolutely ZERO METAPHYSICAL ABILITY TO CONVENE A VALID CONCLAVE.  If the Petrine See is occupied under ANY circumstance, no real conclave can be called. Period.

Can. 359 When the Apostolic See is vacant, the college of cardinals possesses only that power in the Church which is attributed to it in special law.

Can. 359 — Sede Apostolica vacante, Cardinalium Collegium ea tantum in Ecclesia gaudet potestate, quae in peculiari lege eidem tribuitur.

So there you go.  Now, remember folks, I am, it is reliably reported, stupid, physically ugly, a female who should thus be ineligible to speak in any format or context on anything regarding the Church, and I do not even possess a bachelor’s degree in Bible Lawyering.  So, you know, take all of this objective evidence and logical argumentation with a grain of salt, accordingly.

As always, I hope and pray that this helps.

Pray for Pope Benedict XVI Ratzinger, still reigning, the Papacy, and Holy Mother Church.

St. Peter, pray for us.

Our Lady, Undoer of Knots, pray for us.

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on us.

Welp, I finally found something I am allergic to.

The only thing I knew I was legit allergic to (other than ragweed pollen, but does that even count as a real allergy? Isn’t EVERYONE allergic to ragweed?) is the Sulfa antibiotic family.

Well, I found another substance, and I figure if a non-allergy prone person like me is allergic to this stuff, it deserves a word of warning.  It is a chemical that is routinely found in so-called “natural” soaps (in my case a shower gel – for maximum bodily exposure… great) called cocamide monoisopropanolamine or MIPA for short.

In August (when I bought a different shower gel for the first time), I suddenly started getting what I thought was heat rash.  It was very hot, and I was sweating a lot, so while odd, I didn’t worry much about it.  Well, this “heat rash” spread, then started getting quite nasty.  So nasty, in fact, that despite the fact that I had a very vigorous case of chickenpox when I was 3 1/2, I was looking up signs and symptoms of shingles.  Could it be that with the advent of the chickenpox vaccine that shingles was back in play for people who had chickenpox as kids? As it turned out, no.  Thank God.

I finally forensically mapped out that the rash coincided with my new bottle of shower gel.  Sure enough, ingredient number FOUR is “Cocamide MIPA”, which is an emulsifier, stabilizer and surfactant used in “natural” soaps.  And if you are allergic to it… YIKES.

Remember folks, just because something says “natural” or “hypoallergenic” doesn’t mean that there is zero chance that you could have an allergic reaction to it.  The truth is, most of these labels are just marketing ploys. “Organic” has no actual meaning other than “we’re going to charge you double-to-triple for this”.  “Natural”, “hypoallergenic”, all just buzz words.  And hey, ragweed is “natural”.  So is lactose.  So are peanuts and shellfish.

So, back to the old reliable shower gel for me!  Problem solved. I am stronger now.

And now, a little cultural appropriation, just to say we did.

Signs, Signs, Everywhere Signs: Fragments of Ceiling of St. Peter’s Basilica Fall During Bergoglio’s Mass

It happened to the left side of the high altar. The area was evacuated. This Mass was to consecrate four new bishops, and took place after the pagan shaman ritual in the Vatican Gardens in which demons were invoked to “protect the earth” with Antipope Bergoglio present and presiding.

A Meditation on Credits and Debits

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….

And when the Son of man shall come in His majesty, and all the angels with Him, then shall He sit upon the seat of His majesty. And all nations shall be gathered together before Him, and He shall separate them one from another, as the shepherd separateth the sheep from the goats: And He shall set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on His left.  Matthew 25: 31-33

No, “Francis” is NOT the Pope and never has been, and I’m available to help walk folks through the mountain of canonical and visible evidence in any way I can. No hard feelings.

Patience is the Fruit of the Fourth Sorrowful Mystery: The Carrying of the Cross

Here is ChurchMilitant’s video of the day, just released:

TRANSCRIPT

We’re bringing you these series of reports to help you better understand the stakes.

There are whispers and quiet chatter all over Rome just days before the controversial Amazon Synod kicks off that the conclave which elected Pope Francis might have been invalid; a very close second to the talk of an invalid conclave is that Francis may have committed heresy.

(…)

All of these things, and much more, have started a lot of private conversations in and around Rome, as well as other parts of the Church, explicitly asking the question: Is Francis really the true pope?

So, quiet dinner conversations are punctuated with topics about whether the conclave that elected him was actually valid.

Pray for Pope Benedict XVI, the Papacy, and Holy Mother Church.

St. Michael, guardian angel of the Roman Pontiff, pray for us.

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on us.

Mailbag: Totally unsurprising 401k fraud story

Ann,

I was listening (to Barnhardt Podcast #094) and reached the part about 401-ks and had to stop and write.

I was working for Conagra and in their plan was a company stock buy/sell option. A friend and I (pre-red pill) believed we knew a lot about stocks etc. and as their stock at the time was bouncing up and down in a narrow tunnel (aka sideways channel) of about $6.00 we decided to day trade it within the 401-k.

We set up an excel spreadsheet and bought and sold at/near the tunneling lows/highs. However, our accounts never reflected the profits we showed should have been there.

Turns out the company was collecting all the buy orders and sell orders and then allocating in bulk monthly to the days most advantageous to themselves as holders of stock they were trading against us. So they would allocate our buy orders to the highest priced day of the month, and our sells to the lowest, and this ability ended up being in the rules.

Screwed again. Older, wiser, and poorer. Now I have almost $30k in a lock box behind my mini-14.

Signed,

Ray V.


It’s a small club folks, and YOU AIN’T IN IT.

ACTION ITEM BY REQUEST: Blasphemous Pervert Priest Speaking at SSPX Conference with +Fellay

Yeah, this is BAD.  I suspect the SSPX/Angelus/+Fellay simply didn’t do their homework on this guy, but, COME ON.  Anytime “Theology of the Bawdy” is mentioned, RED ALERT! Duh!

This priest has been invited to speak at Angelus Press’ “Defense of the Family: Fortifying Catholic Marriage” conference this weekend (Oct 4-6) in Kansas City.  Link to conference homepage HERE.

For those who don’t know, Angelus Press is the SSPX’s publishing house.

This Novus Ordo priest of the diocese of Lincoln, NE is named Fr. Sean Kilcawley.  I have transcribed his sickening blasphemy in this video below:

“And a better way of approaching our temptations, instead of asking Our Lord to take them away – which gives us the impression that Jesus enters into our life to take away our temptations so that we can then fix ourselves and eventually be worthy of Him to come back and enter in, is to simply invite Our Lord into our temptation and into our thoughts in the present moment. To say, “Jesus, I want to look at pornography right now.” Or, “Jesus, I’m having an impure thought right now. You’re welcome into my imagination.  You’re welcome to watch these thoughts with me.”

This is SO SICK, and I can tell you right now that every less-than-well-catechized person who would hear this would say, “Oh, okay.  That priest said it’s okay to willfully entertain impure thoughts, and even watch porn, as long as I ask Jesus to watch. And then if I don’t stop, and take it to completion, I guess that means Jesus was cool with it, otherwise He would have stopped me. And it was an SSPX event, so he must be right….”

Action Item: Get this guy OFF the Angelus Press program.

Here, again, is the link to the event.

I would recommend contacting both Angelus Press and the SSPX directly.

Lamb of God, Who takes away the sins of the world, have mercy on us.

And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen.
