Crystal Balling With BerGOGlio



What is going to happen in the Catholic Church over the next 2-3 years? No one can know for certain, mainly because we don't know how long Jorge BerGOGlio has to live (or who his successor might be). What is certain, however, is that changes will come constantly as long as BerGOGlio is the earthly leader of the Church. We already know this. Just look at the recent Catholic news and you'll see: 

  • the German Catholic Hierarchy proposing outright schism, and silence from BerGOGlio's Vatican.
  • BerGOGlio's re-writing of the 6th Commandment, and silence from the Curia and Cardinals.
  • BerGOGlio's continued shellacking of Traditional Catholicism, its ancient practices and the Catholics who embrace it, and silence from the greater majority of Bishops who could have and should have defended them all, despite VII's saintly status within the hierarchy.
  • BerGOGlio's pro-homosexual sermons, interviews, writings and behavior that require priests to reconcile the Catechism of the Catholic Church's teaching to that of the "living" Catechism of BerGOGlio - and do so with a straight face in front of their parishioners. 
  • BerGOGlio's brazen worshipping of the Paka-Waka-Mama idol in the very heart of Rome with Cardinals and other clerics - in silence - beside him.

"Trust me!" he says. "Hagan Lio!" he does.

So, how does one reconcile BerGOGlio's God of Surprises, who apparently loves to see homosexuality in His priests, adultery in His children and idol worshipping in His Temple, to the Triune God who punished Sodom and Gomorrah with fire, told Mary Magdalene to cease adultery and banished the idolaters of Mt Sinai to Hell? One cannot, for each is diametrically opposed to the other. So, then, as Catholics, whom are we required to follow when presented with two versions of Truth: God or BerGOGlio? 

The answer is written pretty clearly in Revelations (concerning Heaven): "There shall not enter into it any thing defiled, or that worketh abomination or maketh a lie, but they that are written in the book of life of the Lamb."

Sobering words. Remember them well.

It's hard not to believe that BerGOGlio has a tablet at his bedside (a gift from his Masonic & Gay handlers, perhaps) with all of the changes already listed that he will enact. All he need do at the end of each day is to check off what's been accomplished that has accelerated the making of the Roman Catholic Church into just another subsidiary religion under the control of the United Nations. And each day he awakens to another New Dawn, another New Aggiornamento to repeat the process.

But, I here ask, what of that day forthcoming when Bergoglio doesn't awaken from his sleep? What will happen in the days and weeks beyond that event? 

The man is already a living-saint to some and I will venture to say that Bergoglio will have a meteoric rise to sainthood. He will be remembered and honored in the hallowed halls of the United Nations, the mosques of Abu Dhabi and the United States House of Representatives (which currently enjoys a majority of his fans in residence). Accolades and joyous choruses will be heard from New Ways Ministry and its pro-homosexual adherent churches (no links), who will also name BerGOGlio as their Patron Saint. And Father James Martin, S.J. will be the Honorary Reader who will present BerGOGlio's eulogy to the masses huddled inside the protected walls of St. Peters.

Sadly, though, as the mourners will be restricted to advance ticket holders, all others, i.e. the smelly sheep of the Amazonians, the boat people of Lampedusa and the marginalized poor of Rome itself, will need to be content with an ear to the Vatican walls. (Sorry folks...space is limited and there is, um...the wall, you know? Heh.Heh.)

So...am I prescient or what?

Prayer for Our Government & and Our President

As the impeachment circus comes to a head on this day in the House of Representatives, let us offer this prayer, not only for our country, but for our President. May Our Lord Jesus Christ and his Most Blessed Mother, Patroness of the United States of America, continue to bestow their Graces & blessings upon our country and especially its current President. 

Despite his real or perceived failings, Donald John Trump has been one of the best Presidents this country has had in recent memory...I personally place him next to Ronald Reagan, and far ahead of either of the George Bush's. We will have to wait, though, for history to write his actual place among his equals. Ed.



Prayer for Our Government 
(and for our President, Ed.)

We pray, O almighty and eternal God, who through Jesus Christ has revealed thy glory to all nations, to preserve the works of your mercy, that your Church, being spread through the whole world, may continue with unchanging faith in the confession of your name.

We pray Thee, who alone are good and holy, to endow with heavenly knowledge, sincere zeal and sanctity of life, our chief bishop, the pope, the vicar of Our Lord Jesus Christ, in the government of his Church; our own bishop, all other bishops, prelates and pastors of the Church; and especially those who are appointed to exercise among us the functions of the holy ministry, and conduct your people into the ways of salvation.

We pray O God of might, wisdom and justice, through whom authority is rightly administered, laws are enacted, and judgment decreed, assist with your Holy Spirit of counsel and fortitude the president of these United States, that his administration may be conducted in righteousness and be eminently useful to your people over whom he presides; by encouraging due respect for virtue and religion; by a faithful execution of the laws in justice and mercy; and by restraining vice and immorality.

Let the light of your divine wisdom direct the deliberations of Congress, and shine forth in all the proceedings and laws framed for our rule and government, so that they may tend to the preservation of peace, the promotion of national happiness, the increase of industry, sobriety and useful knowledge; and may perpetuate to us the blessing of equal liberty.

We pray for his excellency, the governor of this state, for the members of the assembly, for all judges, magistrates, and other officers who are appointed to guard our political welfare, that they may be enabled, by your powerful protection, to discharge the duties of their respective stations with honesty and ability.

We recommend likewise, to your unbounded mercy, all our brethren and fellow citizens throughout the United States, that they may be blessed in the knowledge and sanctified in the observance of your most holy law; that they may be preserved in union, and in that peace which the world cannot give; and after enjoying the blessings of this life, be admitted to those which are eternal.

Finally, we pray to you, O Lord of mercy, to remember the souls of your servants departed, who are gone before us with the sign of faith and repose in the sleep of peace; the souls of our parents, relatives and friends; of those who, when living, were members of this congregation, and particularly of such as are lately deceased; of all benefactors who, by their donations or legacies to this Church, witnessed their zeal for the decency of divine worship and proved their claim to our grateful and charitable remembrance. To these, O Lord, and to all that rest in Christ, grant, we beseech you, a place of refreshment, light and everlasting peace, through the same Jesus Christ, Our Lord and Savior.

Amen.

The Atlantic: The Christian Withdrawal Experiment

The current issue of Atlantic features Saint Marys, Kansas, where I called home from 2002-2017. Though I disagree on some points, I otherwise thought it well balanced (it could just have easily been a "hit" piece) and positive to both Saint Marys and the SSPX. The old adage "home is where the heart is" is, for me, an accurate one: I will always hold many fond memories of Saint Marys and am fortunate it remains just a 3 hour drive away. 

The pastor at our SSPX Church in Wichita, is playing the piano in one of the articles photos. In the image below: (L) Father Patrick Rutledge, the parish rector; (C) Fr. Jurgen Wegner, USA District Superior;

Photo from the article

Half an hour down the highway from Topeka, Kansas, not far from the geographic center of the United States, sits the town of St. Marys. Like many towns in the region, it is small, quiet, and conservative. Unlike many towns in the region, it is growing. As waves of young people have abandoned the Great Plains in search of economic opportunity, St. Marys has managed to attract families from across the nation. The newcomers have made the radical choice to uproot their lives in pursuit of an ideological sanctuary, a place where they can raise their children according to values no longer common in mainstream America.

St. Marys is home to a chapter of the Society of St. Pius X, or SSPX. Named for the early-20th-century pope who railed against the forces of modernism, the international order of priests was formed in the aftermath of the Second Vatican Council, the Catholic Church’s attempt, in the 1960s, to meet the challenges of contemporary life. Though not fully recognized by the Vatican, the priests of SSPX see themselves as defenders of the true practices of Roman Catholicism, including the traditional Latin Mass, celebrated each day in St. Marys. Perfumed with incense and filled with majestic Latin hymns, the service has an air of formality and grandeur. To most American Catholics under the age of 50, it would be unrecognizable.

Deutsche Nationale Katholische Kirche

(Updated to correct multiple spelling errors. Ed)

https://www.lifesitenews.com/news/german-bishops-proclaim-homosexuality-normal-adultery-not-grave

The German Bishops Conference apparently has begun the nascent steps of breaking from Rome and birthing the Deutsche Nationale Katholische Kirche*, or simply, the DNKK. This news has, apparently, hardly registered with Catholic Bishops or lay Catholics world-wide, let alone those in Germany. It is certainly another sad day for Catholicism, already reeling amid so many other sad days. 

Every professed Catholic the world over, excepting those ubiquitous CINO's, should be madder-than-hell over this monumental news. Here we have a renegade group of Bishops, supposedly loyal, firstly, to Christ Himself and, secondly, to Holy Mother Church and its visible Head, the Pope (however bad Frances may be, he is still the Pope) deciding enmasse on Spiritual suicide...and getting away with it! I would have thought that as soon as this story unfolded, a strong condemnation would have been fired off from Santa Marta, reminding these Bishops renegades and Pope Cardinal Marx just who is the Head of this earthly Catholic Church and whom is to follow who. The Pope, as a matter of leadership, should have fired those Bishops renegades who led this schism immediately and appointed caretaker bishops from Africa until new Bishops were named.

But then again: collegiality**

So, apparently, life will go on:
  • the Pope will continue to do what he apparently does best: Nothing. 
  • the German Schism will remain in good standing with Rome, but as a fellow Protestant sect.
  • Cardinal Marx will be officially named head of the DNKK on January 3, 2021, the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther's excommunication.
  • Martin Luther himself will be rehabilitated and declared Venerable, Blessed and Saint simultaneously, thus becoming DNKK's protosaint.
  • German Catholics will be forced into making a choice of Christ vs Man; God vs demigods. 
  • The Vatican will lose more money from those Catholics who will follow the DNKK into schism.
And finally, Pope Francis, the visible head of the Roman Catholic Church, will welcome the new Pope Marx to Santa Marta as a fellow Pope and Christian. In a show of solidarity with this new and evolving church, Pope Francis will kiss the feet of this newly-mitered ambassador, declaring with reckless abandon that faithful Catholics have yet another path to Salvation outside the Roman Catholic Church. Later in the week, both Popes will concelebrate a Mass of Thanksgiving, thereby cementing this schism as the Will of Christ, and that Roman Catholics are free to attend DNKK churches to fulfill their Catholic Mass and Sacramental obligations.



And the following day, the worst lightning storm in European and Roman history strikes St. Peter's Basilica, shattering its dome beyond repair. Pope Marx immediately notifies Francis the DNKK will provide the funds needed to rebuild & repair St. Peters to a more proper and grander cathedral, worthy of such a humble servant of the World.

Obviously, some of the above is fact, while some is pure conjecture on my part. But even the conjecture portion has some possible - nay, probable - truth buried within the words. The DNKK already is acting like a Church unto themselves at this very moment, so it is simply a matter of time before conjecture becomes possible, then probable, then fact. It may not happen during what may be left of the Francis pontificate, but it could surely happen during a Francis 2.0 one (see here for corroboration of this theory).

To any German Catholic readers of this blog I say this: do not be misled by these renegades and charlatans. They are not acting as a Catholic Bishop should; as true Shepard's of the Church, and certainly not as Apostolic ones. Do not take what they say as Catholic Truth, until it has been verified as such. And in this matter, the German Bishops are diametrically opposed to God, Our Lord Jesus Christ and Church Teaching. No man on earth can add one jot or tittle to the 6th Commandment or change the reason Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed. To even hint the affirmative is to (1) admit God is fallible and (2) acknowledge a divinity no man on earth can have.

Remember the words of the serpent to Eve: "No, you shall not die the death. For God doth know that in what day soever you shall eat thereof, your eyes shall be opened: and you shall be as Gods, knowing good and evil." 

Are not these men making themselves "...as Gods"?

Remember also these words from Matthew: "And fear ye not them that kill the body, and are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him that can destroy both soul and body in hell."

Feast of the Immaculate Conception

(This is from 2014, but it works quite well for 2019 also. As Our Lady is timeless, so can be any writings of Her. She is my Patroness; your Patroness; our country's Patroness. May She ever be so. Ed)

His Holiness Ven. Pope Pius IX
King of Rome(1846 – 1878)

From piustheninth.com:

POPE PIUS IX PROCLAIMS THE DOGMA OF THE IMMACULATE CONCEPTION

On December 8, 1854, having spent all of his holy life – his boyhood, his priesthood, as bishop, cardinal and Pope – at the feet of the Mother of God, the most Blessed Virgin Mary, and having deeply considered also, in his exile at Gaeta, the earnest petitions of Catholics all over the world in its behalf, Pope Pius IX defined ex cathedra, in the glorious Basilica of Saint Peter's before one hundred and seventy bishops and innumerable pilgrims come literally from the ends of the earth, the divine dogma of Our Lady's Immaculate Conception. The voice of the Sovereign Pontiff broke and tears filled his eyes as he paused before uttering the infallible words:

"We declare, pronounce and define that the doctrine which holds that the Blessed Virgin Mary, at the first instant of her conception, by a singular privilege and grace of the Omnipotent God, in virtue of the merits of Jesus Christ, the Savior of mankind, was preserved immaculate from all stain of original sin, has been revealed by God, and therefore should firmly and constantly be believed by all the faithful...."

As the Holy Father finished speaking, the cannon of the Castle of Sant' Angelo boomed and the bells of the basilicas and churches of Rome long rang out the glorious news, which ushered in the Age of Mary – the last age of the world. The Catholic faithful rejoiced, and grace flooded their souls as they prayed the prayer Our Lady herself had given twenty years before to Catherine Laboure, "O Mary, conceived without sin, pray for us who have recourse to thee."

                                                           




Consecration to the Immaculate Conception

In the presence of God Almighty, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, and with heaven and earth as our witness, we prostrate ourselves at thy feet, O Mary, Our Lady.

We acknowledge Thee as our Mother, as the Immaculate Conception, living tabernacle of the Divinity, as Queen of angels and of men, as Mother of the Church and of the Catholic priesthood, and as refuge of the afflicted. That is why, small and weak that we are, we wish to consecrate to Thee our Institute, our families, our persons, our works, our future, all that pertains to us and is in us, and which God, in His immeasurable goodness, has entrusted to us for our good use.

We also consecrate to Thee the value of our good actions, past, present, and future, leaving to Thee the entire and full right of disposing of us and all that belongs to us. Mary, be our Mother; sanctify us, purify us, correct us, guide us, pray for us and protect us.

Help us to perfectly fulfill the duties of our state of life. Extinguish in us all self-love, which prevents Thy Divine Son, King and Sovereign Priest, from reigning in and around us.

Cover abundantly with thy maternal protection all the parishes, chapels, schools, works and missions entrusted to the Institute, and mayest Thou forever impede the devil from reigning, in any manner, in this Institute which desires to be entirely Thine for the greater glory of God, the exaltation of our Mother the Holy Catholic Church, and for the conversion of sinners. Amen.
