The Voice of a Stranger. Of Wolves, Faithless Hirelings, Antipopes, and the Critical Necessity for the Smelly, Unlettered Sheep to Discern the Voice of the Good Shepherd

MORE VISIBLE, OBVIOUS PROOF THAT BERGOGLIO IS AN ANTIPOPE USURPER, AND THAT THE EVENTS OF FEBRUARY ARSH 2013 WERE A FREEMASONIC ATTEMPTED COUP. POPE BENEDICT XVI IS THE ONE AND ONLY LIVING VICAR OF CHRIST, HAVING PROFFERED AN INVALID PARTIAL RESIGNATION.

“THE CATHOLIC CHURCH AND THE ANTI-CHURCH CURRENTLY CO-EXIST IN THE SAME SACRAMENTAL, LITURGICAL AND JURIDICAL SPACE”.

This is a quote from Fr. Linus Clovis from a speech he gave to the Rome Life Forum on 18 May, ARSH 2017.  This is a clear, succinct definition of the current situation, and as with all statements that are true and clear, it carries a tremendous capacity to both edify and console.

The virile man wants to know what is going on around him. He wants a clear, accurate description of objective reality, no matter how ugly, because the virile man is constantly seeking to formulate and execute the best possible response and path forward.  The virile man does not ever plop down on the ground, declare the situation too difficult or too unpleasant, and disengage in favor of a quietistic, passivistic, self-righteous pity-party.  I am reminded of the great line uttered by then-Colonel Chesty Puller at the Battle of Chosin Reservoir: “We’ve been looking for the enemy for some time now. We’ve finally found him. We’re surrounded. That simplifies things.” Puller’s line could be applied without change to the situation in the Church today.

When it comes to the supernatural reality of The One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church, this process of synthesizing the dataset and finding the one true answer is obligatory, precisely because we know that The Church is Real, it is Visible, and the Gates of Hell will not prevail against it.  We KNOW that there is a visible, knowable truth in this situation, and that the response and path forward is not only discernible, but is discernible by laymen – that is, “the sheep”.

DO NOT for a moment be browbeaten into believing the lie that unless you have a degree in Theology, are a Canon Lawyer, or are a cradle Catholic, that you are unqualified to engage your intellect and discern the “voice of the shepherd” from that of the faithless hirelings and the wolves. This lie is in direct opposition to the Good Shepherd Discourse – the words of Our Lord and Savior Himself.  I am hard-pressed to think of a group of people who have been as much of a collective failure over the past fifty years as Catholic Theologians, Canonists and cradle Catholics. Remember, these are the very people who sat and watched in a state of complete flaccidity the near-total destruction of the Catholic Church and the de facto apostasy of something like 90% of Catholics in the West, and did basically nothing to stop it.  The notable exception would, of course, be Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre.  How many dissertations have been written and man-hours consumed trying to square the circle of the OBVIOUSLY failed Second Vatican Council? How much time has been wasted on the pipe dream of “reforming” the Novus Ordo liturgy? How exactly does one “reform” something that was conceived in malice in the first place?  Meanwhile, back at the ranch, north of 95% of Catholics today contracept without any hesitation or qualm, and north of 60% say they are in favor of sodomitical pseudo-marriage. Given this, I am further hard-pressed to think of a group of people who so lack the self-awareness to recognize their own truly catastrophic failure, and will still, with straight faces, appeal to their academic credentials, and even more laughably to their ETHNICITY as a proofset of their exclusive competence.

Furthermore, precisely because we will all stand alone before Jesus Christ at our Particular Judgments, and God being a loving, merciful God, the Divine Providence has unfolded such that the words of Christ to the disciples of John the Baptist echo through time with the same strength and volume as the day they were first uttered: Go and relate to John what you have heard and seen.  The answer is obvious.  It is right in front of you. Christ always, always lays a path. That path is narrow, and there are gates along the path that we all must pass through, but THERE IS A CLEAR, OBVIOUS, VISIBLE PATH.

And so, slowly, slowly, more people are acknowledging the obvious: Bergoglio is an Antipope.  Further, they are realizing that it was the invalidity of Pope Benedict’s “partial resignation”, which, again, is GLARINGLY OBVIOUS given all of the evidence, first and foremost being Ratzinger’s words, followed by Ratzinger’s peculiar and totally unprecedented actions, and requires the willful suspension of disbelief at the absolute minimum to ignore.

It bears mentioning at this point that there are more people acknowledging the truth of the Bergoglian antipapacy than it would appear.  Most “trad Catholic” websites are actively, aggressively purging all mention of this Antipapacy qua antipapacy from their comment boxes, and many dedicate a non-trivial amount of time to ad hominem attacks and outright defamation, causing many people to recoil for fear of being called “crazy”, “dippy” and most pathetically, “sedevacantist”.  I have said it before and I will say it again: to hurl the accusation of “sedevacantism” at a person who argues that the entire issue is the fact that Pope Benedict XVI is the one and only living Pope, and has been all along, is not only flatly mendacious, it is a tacit admission of failure.  Since they can’t honestly engage the dataset without having a big fat knot form in the pit of their stomach, a knot which indicates that they need to acknowledge a truth that would A.) cost them donation revenue OR, B.) cost them their job, retirement benefits, or potential for career advancement and/or C.) cause them to be shunned from their (oftentimes extremely dubious) social circles, the only response they can make is to lash out in anger, sadly falling for the satanic gambit of making a binary objective state, namely the occupancy or vacancy of the See of Peter, into a political football and schoolyard taunt implying mental instability and a tendency toward subscribing to irrational conspiracy theories.

What I hear from people consistently is that the explanation of what has happened with regards to the invalid partial resignation of Ratzinger, and the subsequent Bergoglian antipapacy is entirely logical, and beyond that is completely backed-up by all of the objective evidence AND Canon Law, and ties together not only the myriad prophecies of both the ascendancy of an apostate church seated in Rome, but also reconciles the words of Our Blessed Lord, especially with regards to His promises to us about the special nature and protection that the Petrine See would carry throughout time.

One of satan’s most clever chess maneuvers has been the setting up of the board such that the Office of the Papacy is under attack by both sides.  Clearly, Antipope Bergoglio is consciously hellbent on destroying the Church, and also the Papacy itself, because the Papacy is the Rock upon which Christ built and sustains The Church. Antipope Bergoglio’s power comes not from Christ, because Bergoglio is of the antichrist, and may well be the False Prophet Forerunner of the Antichrist, the anti-John the Baptist.  Antipope Bergoglio’s power comes from pure thuggery, and capitalizing on the faithlessness, blackmailable degeneracy, fear and intense effeminacy of the clergy today. Bergoglio desires, consciously, to utterly and permanently destroy The Church and stand astride its broken corpse, establishing an apostate anti-church which will hail him as its founder.

BUT, what we also see, and what more and more people are noticing, is that the people of the so-called “Trad-right” of the spectrum who refuse to acknowledge the Bergoglian antipapacy qua antipapacy are ALSO frantically tearing down the papacy, because the only way they can come anywhere close to coherence is to argue stridently that which NOT ONE OF THEM would have argued five years ago today, namely that the Papacy is and always has been of minimal import, and that everything Bergoglio has said and done is completely within the bounds of Our Lord’s promises to Peter, which really didn’t mean much at all, as it turns out.  In other words, to confess Bergoglio as Vicar of Christ, one must necessarily adopt a completely Protestant view of the Petrine Primacy.  And so, while satan’s black pieces have the king in check, white, with each move, abandons and exposes the white king, preferring instead to form a defense around a small, dimwitted, psychopathic BLACK PAWN.

Which brings up another point to ponder.  If, solely for the sake of argument, we say that Bergoglio is, in fact, the pope (which he isn’t and never has been), and that everything he has done is completely “within bounds” with regards to the special protections of the Petrine Office, and given that evil never, ever rests… WHY DIDN’T THIS HAPPEN A LONG TIME AGO?  If the Pope has the capacity to literally destroy the Church, or as Professor Josef Seifert put it, “destroy the entire moral doctrine of The Catholic Church” – a statement which has gotten Professor Seifert FIRED by his FrancisApostateChurch Archbishop – why, oh why, didn’t satan do this a LOOOOOOONG time ago?  Why didn’t Paul VI Montini, sodomite, Commie-lover and all-around bad man, do it?  Why didn’t Alexander VI Borgia, between sex romps with Giulia Farnese and goodness knows what other whores, do it?  Why didn’t Pope Benedict IX, a man that St. Peter Damian accused of homosexuality, pedophilia and bestiality, and called “a demon from hell in the disguise of a priest”, WHY DIDN’T HE DO IT?

The answer is simple and obvious to anyone who believes in the words of Our Blessed Lord.  None of these men were able to do what Bergoglio has done and continues to do, because all of these men were The Vicar of Christ.  As such, they were given the supernatural NEGATIVE PROTECTION that is intrinsic and unique to the Papacy, and is a key reason why so many of us converts entered The Church.  Someone HAS to be in charge.  The buck HAS to stop with someone.  And precisely because, after reading about some of the deplorable scoundrels that have occupied the See of Peter over the years, what do we see?  Not one of them ever overturned the table, or even tried.  In nearly 2000 years, only a supernatural protection could explain the continuous existence of the Church Militant and the consistency of its infallible teaching.

The reason Antipope Bergoglio continues to do that which would be metaphysically impossible for a Pope to do, is because Bergoglio isn’t the pope.  With Antipope Bergoglio, satan is unhindered by the Petrine Promise, and thus we have on this chessboard a black pawn who can move to any square, at any time, and not only does white raise no objection, white is ignoring its own king and actively protecting and enabling the black pawn.

The challenge from here forward will be to discern when the apostate anti-church which is currently still occupying the same sacramental, liturgical and juridical space as the One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church, finally breaks away.  A word of consolation: while I obviously can’t predict what exactly the “breaking away” will look like, I can say this with confidence: It will be obvious to those not blinded by their own effeminacy.  God is not a jerk, and He isn’t trying to give us “the shake”.  When it happens, we will know it.  Sadly, MANY people, including many people who profess “Traditional Catholicism” will follow Antipope Bergoglio into the apostate anti-church, and will do it proudly. And many so-called Trad Catholics are actively singing the praises of the schismatic Eastern Orthodox and declaring Vatican I and formally defined dogma to be “wrong”.  I am reminded of Our Lord’s words in John 16: “the hour cometh, that whosoever killeth you, will think that he doth a service to God.”

Finally, the only way to be able to discern the sound of a beloved’s voice is by having a personal relationship with said person.  In this case, the only way to be able to discern the Voice of the Good Shepherd, Our Lord Jesus Christ, is to have a PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP with Him.  The two main ways of accomplishing this are The Sacraments and PRAYER.  No prayer, no relationship.  No relationship, no way to discern His Voice. For rote prayer, nothing beats the Rosary.  Such richness of contemplation!  Also, every day should include, if possible, time before Our Lord reposed in the Tabernacle, with you “just looking at Him”, while He just looks back at you.

I will conclude with Canon 748:

Can. 748 §1. All persons are bound to seek the truth in those things which regard God and His Church and by virtue of divine law are bound by the obligation and possess the right of embracing and observing the truth which they have come to know.”

On the Feast of Blessed Karl, more info about his non-abdication under Freemasonic coercion (via Dr. Mazza)

Read about Emperor Blessed Karl and how Freemasons drove him into exile – but Blessed Karl never abdicated. He merely surrendered administrative duties. Sound… familiar?

The following two new citations on Blessed Karl come via Dr. Mazza.


Emperor Karl would not abdicate, because he had received his crown from God, through the representative of the church, and he had sworn a solemn oath to lead and protect the people God had entrusted to him. He would not renounce that oath. He only agreed to withdraw from the exercise of power—temporarily, he hoped—to spare his poor, hungry, suffering people the further bloodshed of a civil war. When he was forced from power, he signed a carefully worded statement that he would allow the people of Austria to choose how they wished to be governed. This plebiscite was never held. On the day of his death, Emperor Karl made a formal statement that this document, “the November manifest,” was “null and void, because it was forced on me.” So he even considered his temporary withdrawal as null and void.

During Emperor Karl’s exile in Switzerland, the Masons visited him three times, offering to restore him to power, and even to increase his empire if he so desired, if he would just give them power over two areas of legislation: marriage, and the education of children. He refused, telling his wife Zita that he did not underestimate their power, and that “things will go very badly for us from now on,” but “I could not accept from the devil what I had received from God.”

Emperor Karl was “dethroned” by the Hungarian parliament and sent as a prisoner to the island of Madeira. The Masons came to Madeira, twice, first offering enticements, then threatening dire punishments, unless he abdicated. Despite their bribes and threats he refused every time.

from speaker Suzanne Pearson, based on documents from cause of Beatification for Blessed Karl

 ——

The Hungarian coronation oath, on most occasions, followed the Roman ritual for the coronation of kings, ‘De benedictione et Coronatione Regis’.

Importantly, the coronation as king of Hungary was seen as a type of wedding: the word for ‘oath’ (which is what the king’s words to the people of Hungary is called, in Hungarian, ‘eskü’, and the word for wedding (‘esküvő’) are related. So the king ‘married’ Hungary, and this was indissoluble. This oath is known from the 13th century and the ‘more ungarico’ was regularly referenced by the papal representatives at the ceremonies.

In this context, it is important to understand the importance of the Holy Crown of St Stephen. The ‘holy crown’ was a gift from the Virgin Mary to St Stephen, the first king of Hungary, and it is more than just a symbol of Hungary; in rituals it is physically considered to be Hungary. According to legend, on his deathbed in 1037, after summoning the nobility and priests, Stephen “called upon his subjects to remain true to the faith, and then, looking up, he raised his arms to the skies and offered his country and soul to the protection of the Virgin Mary.” The kingship of Hungary, the crown and the connection with the Virgin Mary, who was declared Queen and patroness of Hungary by Stephen in 1038, remained to the fore in royal ritual thereafter. At coronation ceremonies, the crown must be raised by the Archbishop of Esztergom (Gran, in German) aloft, before the people, before being passed to the nádor (the count palatine), who again raised it before the representatives of all the tribes and parts of Hungary, who were asked if they accepted the nominee as king.

They assembled representatives of the people needed to raise a cry of ‘Agreed’ and only then could the ceremony continue. The coronation, in this way, echoed pre-Christian Magyar practices of marrying the king to the people and to the land: all coronation mounts, on which the newly-crowned king would swear an oath to the four cardinal points to protect the kingdom and the people with his life and blood, for his life, were made of soil from every district of the kingdom – this tradition continued right down to the last coronation in 1916 (coronations took place in Székesfehérvár, St Martin’s cathedral in Pozsony/Bratislava, and the coronation of the last two kings of Hungary took place in St Matthias’s church in Buda).

The oath as king of Hungary was for life and indissoluble; a king could not divorce his crown, his land, his people. No Hungarian king has abdicated; some have died on the battlefield (Louis II at Mohács), others have had regents; women have been kings: Maria Theresia was in 1741 crowned ‘rex Hungarica, et regina noster’.

How the Masonic Filthy Face Diaper of Terroristic Submission breaks multiple Commandments

I was asked twice within 24 hours to write this up, so here you go:

Masks are a violation of the FIRST COMMANDMENT

The mask is an outward, visible sign of submission and assent to the Covid Religion, which is actually the final iteration of Freemasonry, heavily fused with islam and the occult. The mask is exactly like the armbands of the Nazis and Blackshirts. Covidism is the One World Religion-Political System that has been long prophesied and anticipated. Purging the world of it will require war, as its converts will not abandon it, even if it is abandoned by the government tomorrow. Belief in masks as a magical talisman that provides a preternatural protection against “disease” (which is what they are) is a species of witchcraft mentality.

Masks are a violation of the SECOND COMMANDMENT

The mask is a blasphemy, as it covers the face, which is intended to dehumanize mankind, created in the image and likeness of God, and is also an attack on the Incarnate Christ. It is absolutely no coincidence, nor any sort of surprise to anyone who knows anything about Freemasonry, which claims “humanism” as its mantra, that DEHUMANIZATION is the true agenda, because Freemasonry is actually Satanism. The wearing of masks by priests during the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is a blasphemy and sacrilege of the highest order, as it presents the image of Christ Himself in the Alter Christus of the sacramental priesthood as a participant in the luciferian Covidreligion – Christ Himself bowing to satan and assenting to the lie of Covidism and its occult “magic garment” talisman.

Masks are a violation of the THIRD COMMANDMENT

Worldwide, churches are closed and Masses canceled, and people are banned from entering churches and worshipping God in His Physical Substantial Presence in the Eucharist if they do not don the mask in submission to the Freemasonic Covidreligion. Christian holidays are canceled, and even the private in-home celebration of Christian holidays are banned in the name of the Freemasonic Submission Mask and deference to the false religion it signifies. Interestingly, Christian singing and chanting is also being banned. Satan is REALLY showing his cards. Pay attention.

Masks are a violation of the FOURTH COMMANDMENT

From the beginning, the ELDERLY have been the number one target of the murderous Covidreligion. “Flu vaccines” in Northern Italy, marketed heavily to the elderly, were seeded with Coronaviridae in ARSH 2019. People sick with any respiratory virus were sent to nursing homes in order to poison and kill the elderly. Now, the elderly are thrown into de facto home imprisonment, many live in a state of constant fear… of seasonal cold/flu, which will never go away, many cut off from their families. The elderly are being actively killed by cancellation of surgeries, therapies and diagnostics while hospitals stand empty and nurses perform dances for social media. Depression and failure to thrive is killing the elderly, and euthanasia is being pushed now more than ever. The mask and the terror it is meant to incite and maintain is the number one weapon is this war against the elderly.

Masks are a violation of the FIFTH COMMANDMENT

Masks are physically filthy and actively dangerous. Living with a perpetually warm, damp fabric over the mouth which is constantly touched is a bacteriological disaster. Redirecting exhalation up into the eyes is medically insane. Staphylococcus, streptococcus, conjunctivitis, periodontal infection (Trench Mouth) and acne are just a few of the conditions caused by masks and facial veiling. Increased Carbon Dioxide respiration is dangerous and impairs human function. Cancellation of surgeries, therapies and diagnostics in the name of Covidreligion is killing people, and this is by malicious design.

Masks are a violation of the EIGHTH COMMANDMENT

There is no pandemic, only a seasonal cold/flu, and masks are a lie designed to dehumanize, terrorize, and purge charity from human hearts. Masks have zero salutary benefit, are physically filthy, and are actively dangerous to human health. Everything about masks as peddled by Covidreligion is a conscious, premeditated terroristic lie. The conventional use of SURGICAL MASKS in surgery theaters, hence the name, is purely to protect surgical personnel from patients’ squirting and spraying blood, pus and effluvium entering the mouth during surgery. Human beings are not poison, to be avoided and defended against. To don a mask is to assent to the lie of the Covidreligion and its irrational, narcissistic, luciferian creed.

As always, I hope this helps.

FILTHY SATANIC LIAR: Antipope Bergoglio’s Twitter account spewing OUTRIGHT LIES

Abject lies.  Being told in order to avoid the justice they deserve, and in order to convince the world that fighting back against the Freemasonic One World CovidPoliticalReligion and Tyranny – this act of war and the greatest crime against humanity EVER PERPETRATED – is morally inadmissible.

Surrender your weapons and submit to the One World Government and enter the Antichurch.  Wear your Masonic Burqa to publicly demonstrate your conversion, submission and loyalty.  Fighting back is morally inadmissible, so just give up now.

The Apostles told Our Lord as they were getting ready to head out from the Upper Room to the Garden of Gethsemane that they had two swords among them, and Our Lord said, “It is enough.”  IN THE AFFIRMATIVE.  Our Lord APPROVED THE QUANTITY and indicated that more swords would not be necessary – TWO WERE GOOD.  SATIS EST.

AFTER LITERALLY JUST TELLING THEM THAT IF THEY DIDN’T HAVE A SWORD, THEY SHOULD SELL THE CLOAK OFF THEIR BACK AND BUY A SWORD.

Evil, satanic liars, with their puppet frontman being an apostate criminal Antipope who is almost certainly the False Prophet Forerunner of the Antichrist, and certainly the visible head of the Antichurch, being constructed, occupying and eclipsing the same juridical, sacramental and liturgical space as the One True Church… for now.

[36] But they said: Nothing. Then said He unto them: But now he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise a scrip; and he that hath not, let him sell his coat, and buy a sword.
At illi dixerunt : Nihil. Dixit ergo eis : Sed nunc qui habet sacculum, tollat; similiter et peram : et qui non habet, vendat tunicam suam et emat gladium.

[37] For I say to you, that this that is written must yet be fulfilled in Me: And with the wicked was he reckoned. For the things concerning Me have an end.
Dico enim vobis, quoniam adhuc hoc quod scriptum est, oportet impleri in me : Et cum iniquis deputatus est. Etenim ea quae sunt de me finem habent.

[38] But they said: Lord, behold here are two swords. And He said to them, It is enough.
At illi dixerunt : Domine, ecce duo gladii hic. At ille dixit eis : Satis est.

 

Q&A: Ann, if Pope Benedict is still the Pope, why does it even matter?

Q: Ann, even if Pope Benedict is still the Pope, why does it even matter?

A: If Pope Benedict is the one and only living Pope (which he is), that means that Jorge Bergoglio is NOT the Pope, and never has been. Every heretical utterance and act that Antipope Bergoglio has made is completely outside the domain of the Papacy, and leaves no stain of scandal on the Papacy, and Antipope Bergoglio has zero participation in the Magisterium. The words, “Well, Pope Francis said…” can never be uttered and used as a cudgel against Christ and His Church for all eternity, because there is no “Pope Francis”, only the criminal usurper fraud Antipope Bergoglio.

“Pope Francis” is not real. “Pope Francis” is a lie. The REAL matters. The Truth matters. Who the Pope is, and who the Pope isn’t matters. If the identity of the Pope were irrelevant, then the Papacy itself would be irrelevant, because it would be invisible. The Pope is the Vicar of Christ, and therefore the visible head and principal of unity of the Church Militant. Unity with the Pope is the standard of schism. Therefore, who the Pope is matters.

Because the Pope has the authority that Christ has directly given to him, the very Keys to the Kingdom of Heaven, the very power to bind and loose, that authority can never, ever be ascribed to a man who does not actually possess it, and does not therefore enjoy the supernatural protection guaranteed by Christ to Peter and all of Peter’s successors. To falsely ascribe Petrine authority to a man who is not the Pope is to hand Satan the ability to cause total chaos, and to cause countless souls to be deceived and scandalized unto eternal damnation.

The greatest act of violence that can be done to the Papacy is not to deny that the Papacy exists, but rather to call a man who is not Peter, “Peter”.

The Truth matters, and it matters because the Truth is a Person, Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To deny that the Truth matters is to deny that God matters. Our Lord is the Way, the TRUTH and the Life, and ONLY through Him, with Him and in Him can we see the Father. There is no lie in God. There is no error in God. There is no unreality in God, who is reality. “I AM WHO AM. Before Abraham was, I AM.”

To love God is to love Truth. To love Truth is to love God.

Indifference to Truth is indifference to God.

Indifference to God is indifference to Truth.

The Third Glorious Mystery of the Rosary is the descent of the Holy Ghost upon the Apostles and Mary at Pentecost. The fruit of this Mystery is love of God, zeal, which illuminates this question.

I hope this helps.

For my own protection: Someone is fraudulently ordering stuff from Home Depot using my identity and old address

I learned long ago that when nefarious, criminal stuff starts happening, TELL SOMEONE IMMEDIATELY.

If you’re famous, call a press conference. If you’re not famous, be as public as you can be.

Someone in Ellsworth, Maine is ordering stuff using my identity. This COULD be some sort of attempt at a frame-job. I don’t know. This is 100% fraudulent, and the last time I was anywhere near Maine was ARSH 1982 when I visited Marshfield, Massachusetts. And I have not owned the property nor lived in Colorado for 7.5 years, nor had the Colorado phone number shown since early ARSH 2013.

Note the criminal got the county wrong: Lone Tree is in Douglas County, not Jefferson.

If anyone wants to research this, feel free.

Vatican I defined the dogma of Papal Infallibility precisely so that we could easily recognize Antipope Bergoglio as an Antipope, and thus Pope Benedict’s attempted resignation as invalid. Vatican I wasn’t a mistake. It is proof of God’s loving Providence

Here is the entirety of Chapter 4 of Session 4 of Vatican 1.  It’s a short, clear and worth three minutes of your time to read.  Emphases mine.

Chapter 4.
On the infallible teaching authority of the Roman Pontiff

1. That apostolic primacy which the Roman Pontiff possesses as successor of Peter, the prince of the apostles, includes also the supreme power of teaching. This Holy See has always maintained this, the constant custom of the Church demonstrates it, and the ecumenical councils, particularly those in which East and West met in the union of faith and charity, have declared it.

2. So the fathers of the fourth Council of Constantinople, following the footsteps of their predecessors, published this solemn profession of faith: The first condition of salvation is to maintain the rule of the true faith. And since that saying of our lord Jesus Christ, You are Peter, and upon this rock I will build my Church [55], cannot fail of its effect, the words spoken are confirmed by their consequences. For in the Apostolic See the Catholic religion has always been preserved unblemished, and sacred doctrine been held in honor. Since it is our earnest desire to be in no way separated from this faith and doctrine, we hope that we may deserve to remain in that one communion which the Apostolic See preaches, for in it is the whole and true strength of the Christian religion [56].

What is more, with the approval of the second Council of Lyons, the Greeks made the following profession:
“The Holy Roman Church possesses the supreme and full primacy and principality over the whole Catholic Church. She truly and humbly acknowledges that she received this from the Lord himself in blessed Peter, the prince and chief of the apostles, whose successor the Roman Pontiff is, together with the fullness of power. And since before all others she has the duty of defending the truth of the faith, so if any questions arise concerning the faith, it is by her judgment that they must be settled.” [57]

Then there is the definition of the Council of Florence:
“The Roman Pontiff is the true vicar of Christ, the head of the whole Church and the father and teacher of all Christians; and to him was committed in blessed Peter, by our lord Jesus Christ, the full power of tending, ruling and governing the whole Church.” [58]

3. To satisfy this pastoral office, our predecessors strove unwearyingly that the saving teaching of Christ should be spread among all the peoples of the world; and with equal care they made sure that it should be kept pure and uncontaminated wherever it was received.

4. It was for this reason that the bishops of the whole world, sometimes individually, sometimes gathered in synods, according to the long established custom of the Churches and the pattern of ancient usage referred to this Apostolic See those dangers especially which arose in matters concerning the faith. This was to ensure that any damage suffered by the faith should be repaired in that place above all where the faith can know no failing [59].

5. The Roman pontiffs, too, as the circumstances of the time or the state of affairs suggested, sometimes by summoning ecumenical councils or consulting the opinion of the Churches scattered throughout the world, sometimes by special synods, sometimes by taking advantage of other useful means afforded by divine providence, defined as doctrines to be held those things which, by God’s help, they knew to be in keeping with Sacred Scripture and the apostolic traditions.

6. For the Holy Spirit was promised to the successors of Peter not so that they might, by his revelation, make known some new doctrine, but that, by his assistance, they might religiously guard and faithfully expound the revelation or deposit of faith transmitted by the apostles.

Indeed, their apostolic teaching was embraced by all the venerable fathers and reverenced and followed by all the holy orthodox doctors, for they knew very well that this See of St. Peter always remains unblemished by any error, in accordance with the divine promise of our Lord and Savior to the prince of his disciples: I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail; and when you have turned again, strengthen your brethren [60].

7. This gift of truth and never-failing faith was therefore divinely conferred on Peter and his successors in this See so that they might discharge their exalted office for the salvation of all, and so that the whole flock of Christ might be kept away by them from the poisonous food of error and be nourished with the sustenance of heavenly doctrine. Thus the tendency to schism is removed and the whole Church is preserved in unity, and, resting on its foundation, can stand firm against the gates of hell.

8. But since in this very age when the salutary effectiveness of the apostolic office is most especially needed, not a few are to be found who disparage its authority, we judge it absolutely necessary to affirm solemnly the prerogative which the only-begotten Son of God was pleased to attach to the supreme pastoral office.

9. Therefore, faithfully adhering to the tradition received from the beginning of the Christian faith, to the glory of God our savior, for the exaltation of the Catholic religion and for the salvation of the Christian people, with the approval of the Sacred Council, we teach and define as a divinely revealed dogma that when the Roman Pontiff speaks EX CATHEDRA, that is, when, in the exercise of his office as shepherd and teacher of all Christians, in virtue of his supreme apostolic authority, he defines a doctrine concerning faith or morals to be held by the whole Church, he possesses, by the divine assistance promised to him in blessed Peter, that infallibility which the divine Redeemer willed his Church to enjoy in defining doctrine concerning faith or morals. Therefore, such definitions of the Roman Pontiff are of themselves, and not by the consent of the Church, irreformable.

So then, should anyone, which God forbid, have the temerity to reject this definition of ours: let him be anathema.

Given at Rome in public session, solemnly held in the Vatican Basilica in the year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and seventy, on the eighteenth day of July, in the twenty-fifth year of Our Pontificate.


Pray for Pope Benedict XVI the one and only living Pope, and for all who have been and are being scandalized and led into error, schism, and apostasy by the Bergoglian Antipapacy.

Please pray for the Repose of Maria Teresa, to whom I owe much.

A friend of mine to whom I have much gratitude, Maria Teresa, died this evening.

I have already organized a full 30 day Gregorian for her. But it is still so sad.

Christians don’t FEAR death, we are disgusted by it.

Maria Teresa, thank you, thank you, thank you for your bold and fearless decision to bring to us our friend these 30+ years ago. Well done, good and faithful servant. We love you, Signora. Rest In Peace.

St. Agnes, pray for us!!!

We’re getting close. If this isn’t full-blown False Prophet Forerunner of the Antichrist manifestation… Apostasy “from the top”, exactly as prophesied by the Blessed Virgin herself.

Antipope Jorge Bergoglio is not now and never has been the Pope.

Pope Benedict never validly resigned. His attempted partial resignation was invalid per Canon 188 because it was made in substantial error, and was likely coerced. Pope Benedict is still the one and only living Vicar of Christ. Bergoglio is an Antipope. OBVIOUSLY.

Pray for Pope Benedict, the Papacy and Holy Mother Church, the Spotless and Indefectible Bride of Christ, outside of which there is no salvation.

Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on us.
