Pope Admits He’s the Devil

Edit: Many a truth is said in jest.

VILNIUS, Lithuania (AP) — The Latest on Pope Francis' visit to the Baltic countries (all times local):
Pope Francis has acknowledged that his reputation pales a bit compared to St. John Paul II — at least as far as Poles are concerned.
Greeting journalists Saturday en route to Lithuania, Francis was given a book about the former pope by Polish photographer Grzegorz Galazka. Receiving the large book with a beaming John Paul on the cover, Francis quipped: "(Pope John Paul II) was a saint, I am the devil."

Bishop “Very Close” to Pope Congratulates Masonic Lodge




(Buenos Aires) An Argentinian bishop and Jesuit congratulated the Masonic lodge of his episcopal city upon its founding. The event itself is spectacular. The bishop, however, is not just any ordinary.



Congratulation of the bishop: "Keep working in the service of humanity and universal brotherhood.

The Bishop of Lomas de Zamora, Msgr. Jorge Rubén Lugones, sent to the Masonic Lodge "Giuseppe Mazzini" No. 118 his "congratulations" on the 126th anniversary of its founding.

The letter is dated 11th September and was addressed by the Bishop to Mr. Martin Sarubbi of the "Venerable Lodge Giuseppe Mazzini No. 118.”

Bishop Rubén Lugones, like Pope Francis, belongs to the Jesuit Order. Along with "cordial greetings" he wrote to the lodge brothers:

"May this celebration encourage you to continue to work for your ideals of love, service to humanity, and universal brotherhood.”

With great satisfaction, the lodge published the letter on September 17 on Facebook:

"Today we received this greeting from the diocese of Lomas de Zamora. We publicly thank you for the reverence and reaffirm our commitment to work together for greater freedom, equality and fraternity by setting aside anachronistic differences. "

By "anachronistic differences" is meant the ecclesiastical prohibition of the lodge membership for Catholics. Since the founding of Freemasonry 300 years ago, the Church has been teaching its incompatibility with the Catholic faith because of its grave, ideological differences.

Who is Bishop Jorge Rubén Lugones?

The 66-year-old bishop was born in the state of Buenos Aires. In 1999, Pope John Paul II appointed him Bishop of Nueva Orèn. He was consecrated by Jorge Mario Bergoglio, then Archbishop of Buenos Aires. Since 2008 he has been Bishop of Lomas de Zamora. At the Argentine Episcopal Conference he is a member of the Commission for the Pastoral Care of Indians and for the Commission for Social Affairs.

The journalist Sergio Rubin, longtime confidant and first biographer of the current Pope, described Jorge Rubén Lugones as "close to the pope" in the Argentine daily Clarin last June.

The Lodge Giuseppe Mazzini no. 118

The lodge Giuseppe Mazzini No. 118 describes itself as a "philanthropic, philosophical and progressive society". On their website, it says:

"Freemasonry is an initiate, esoteric, elitist, and knightly order that seeks to develop the ethical, moral, and spiritual enrichment of its members."

And further:

"Faith in a God whom it calls the Great Builder of the Universe, along with love, service to humanity and universal brotherhood, forms the foundations of our system."

Symbol of the lodge Giuseppe Mazzini no. 118




According to the lodge's website, the Masonic "system" means "an educational, philosophical, traditional and symbolic system", "seeking knowledge to reach the truth". However, this "truth" does not mean the Christian truth, or more precisely, the truth personified in Jesus Christ ("I am the truth") in the Christian understanding. Rather, Freemasonry was founded precisely because it rejects the Christian (divine) offer of truth, and instead seeks a hidden truth independently of it.

The decoupling of Freemasonry from Christianity is described as follows:

"It does not prohibit or impose a religious belief or practice on its members."

Judgment of the Church about Freemasonry unchanged

The congratulation of Bishop Jorge Rubén Lugones took place despite the repeated condemnation of Freemasonry by the Church, most recently in 1983 by the Roman Congregation of the Faith under its then prefect Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger:

 "Judgment of the church unchanged
The question was raised as to whether the Church's judgment on Freemasonry has changed due to the fact that the new CIC does not explicitly mention it as the earlier one.

This Congregation is able to answer that this fact is based on the same editorial criterion as for other associations, which were also not mentioned, because they are integrated into broader categories.

The Church's negative verdict on Masonic unions remains unchanged because its principles have always been considered inconsistent with the doctrine of the Church, and therefore its membership in them is prohibited. Believers belonging to Masonic associations are thus in a state of grave sin and can not receive Holy Communion.

Authorities of the local Church are not entitled to comment on the nature of Masonic unions in a judgment overriding the above, in accordance with the declaration of this Congregation of 17 February 1981 (see AAS 73/1981; Pp. 240-241).

Pope John Paul II confirmed this declaration, which was adopted at the ordinary session of this Congregation, in the audience granted to the undersigned Cardinal Prefect and ordered its publication.

Rome, at the seat of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, 26 November 1983.
Joseph Cardinal RATZINGER
Prefect"

Giuseppe Mazzini

Freemasonry is considered the declared enemy of the Church. Her urgent goals include the suppression of the Church ch’s influence on people. In doing so, it concretely fights Catholic morality. The role of Freemasonry in the anti-Semitic incitement of the Enlightenment and in the French Revolution is well documented. The same applies to a great extent to their role in the nineteenth century in combating and destroying the Papal States.

The high-grade freemason Giuseppe Mazzini (1805-1872), after whom the lodge no. 118 is named, is a telling example of the revolutionary spirit of the lodge brothers and their hostility towards the Church. In Genoa in 1827, he experienced his Masonic initiation. At the beginning of the 1830s, during his imprisonment in Savona, he was awarded the 32nd degree, which was a prerequisite for being admitted to the level of the "Highest Revenge" in the Carboneria secret society. In 1866 he was awarded the 33rd degree. At the same time he was admitted to the Supreme Council of the Scottish Rite. As a Republican and Antimonarchist, he also had to leave Italy, united in 1861, and lived in exile in London. In 1870, when the military struggle against the Papal State reached its final phase, he immediately returned to Italy and organized new unrest. Because of his rejection of the monarchy, he had to leave Italy again after the successful destruction of the Papal State. Shortly before his death in 1872, his Catholic sister tried to persuade him to do penance, to repent and return to the Church. He answered her, "I have no regrets." He died on March 10, 1872 without spiritual assistance under a false name in the mansion of a lodge brother and surrounded by leading Masons. Such a ritual not only happens as a farewell, but is intended to prevent the dying man from becoming "weak" on his death bed, and returning to the faith of the archenemy, the Church.

More recently, several former Masons have left  books offering a glimpse behind the scenes of the lodges.

A more in-depth analysis was provided in 2009 by sociologist and columnist Lorenz Jäger with his study, "Behind the Grand Orient. Freemasonry and revolutionary movements." [Not available in English. At least not on Amazon.] 

Wreath with lodge symbol: Award by the lodge no. 118




An illuminating insight, albeit dressed in a historical novel, is also offered in 2015 by the lawyer Norbert Nemeth, club director of the liberal parliamentary club in the Austrian National Council (comparable to the parliamentary executive director of a parliamentary group with the difference that the club director is not a member of parliament) entitled, "In the shadow of Gracchus".

Because of the proximity of Bishop Rubén Lungone's SJ to Pope Francis, one can not expect a reaction from Rome to the unusual writing and the thus celebrated rapprochement between Church and lodge.

Cupich Aims to Destroy Faithful Priest Who Burnt Sodomy Flag

Edit: The previous pastor died as sordidly as he lived, a friend of Cardinal Bernardin, he was an avid supporter of the evils of sodomy. Meanwhile, +++Cupich has marshaled his evil forces and thrown Father abruptly from his rectory. There have been numerous death threats and vandalism from the NOH8 crowd. This is an exact duplicate of the treatment meted out to the late Bishop Rogelio Liveres.

 Has anyone read the story of Lot?

And you’d think that this priest had burned an icon or desecrated the Sacrament.
 
[Mahound’s Paradise] Just hours ago, new Chicago Auxiliary Bishop Mark Bartosic arrived unannounced at Resurrection Parish on Chicago's Northwest side and told Pastor Paul Kalchik that he had just minutes to get his belongings together and vacate the premises or the police would be called to arrest him for trespassing.

Fr. Kalchik was about to perform a wedding.

Soon after, Fr. Kalchik left for an undisclosed location, accompanied by his brother who had been visiting the parish.

Brazilian Paper: “Pope Benedict Has Parkinson’s”



What about the state of health of Benedict XVI? Is this for real? The most recent picture of the head of the church (2005-2013), to whom many glances are directed in the current Church crisis.

(Rome) In Germany, media reports, Benedict XVI. has compared his resignation with the resignation of Pope Pius XII. in 1944, when he feared being taken hostage by the National Socialists (see When did Benedict XVI comment on the pope's crisis?). In Brazil it is also reported that the former Pope suffers from Parkinson's.

The Bild-Zeitung published extracts yesterday from a letter that Benedict XVI. sent in November to an unnamed German cardinal. The letter is startling, because the eighth German Pope of Church history seems to indicate that he has resigned in fear of his life. So far he has repeatedly insisted that his historically unprecedented renunciation took place voluntarily.

Since then, new questions have been raised in the room.

Meanwhile, Bergoglians have been enthusiastic about the picture article. First and foremost, because it distracts from Pope Francis, who is in severe distress because of the US abuse scandal. Especially, however, because the Bild newspaper spread the thesis with its article that Benedict XVI.’s resignation is due to the current Church crisis. His opponents had always claimed the opposite. Those forces that hindered Benedict's pontificate wherever they could applauded his resignation frenetically. At present, however, they are obviously reaching for every straw to support Francis. The Vatican still seems to have no clear ideas about how to deal with the incriminating Viganò dossier.



Benedict XVI. in the Vatican Gardens (published August 22, 2018)

The Bergoglian also finds satisfaction in the fact that the Bild article shows a conflict among friends: not conservatives against progressives, as has been shown for decades, but Ratzinger against Ratzingerians. That's why they immediately pointed to Cardinal Walter Brandmüller. He was the unknown cardinal to whom Benedict XVI. wrote a "letter of anger". This dramatization fits into the "image", namely the Bild newspaper, which belongs to the globalist media and never stands on the side of Benedict XVI in ecclesiastical questions.

In Brazil, meanwhile, the magazine Veja reported on "The Martyrdom of Benedict XVI". 

But first a look back:

Last February, the media reported "death rumors surrounding former Pope Benedict". His brother, Msgr. Georg Ratzinger, was "concerned about the state of health" of Benedict XVI. In an interview with Neue Post, he spoke of a "paralysis" that affected "my brother Joseph.” “The biggest concern is that the paralysis could eventually go to the heart. And then it can be over quickly.” And further: "I pray every day for a good hour of death for me and my brother. For both of us. That's a big wish we have."

The Vatican press office hastened the brother of Benedict XVI. to deny:

"The alleged news of a debilitating or degenerative disease is wrong."

On the health of Benedict XVI. the Vatican explained:

"He feels the burden of the years, as is normal at his age".

Now, the Brazilian magazine Veja reported on Benedict XVI that "the Pope suffers from the symptoms of Parkinson's, a disease that could have contributed to his decision.”

The magazine appeals "exclusively" to Church representatives who "are close to the emeritus pope":

"Benedict XVI. suffers from Parkinson's and already felt the signals of the disease when he stepped down. "

His daily routine was "very limited because of the disease".

Veja does not mention the source of information that remains anonymous because it is not authorized to speak publicly about the health of the former Pope.

In support of the claim, Veja refers to the illness of Pope John Paul II. He had "suffered from Parkinson's since 1996". Only in 2001 did his personal physician speak of it for the first time in an interview. In addition Veja: The "Polish Pope died in 2005, without the Vatican officially confirming his condition.”

According to the Brazilian weekly magazine, the Vatican behaves now with Benedict XVI. just like that. The official reading is:

"The emeritus Pope is fine. His 'illness' is his 91 years."

The latest known picture of Benedict XVI. was on 22 August by the Vatican Foundation Joseph Ratzinger - Benedict XVI. posted on Facebook. It shows Benedict with Don Simone Billeci, lecturer at the Theological Faculty of Sicily. Don Billeci presented Benedict in the garden of the monastery Mater Ecclesiae, the unpublished dissertation, previously edited by him, by Michael Johannes Marmann. Marmann's dissertation was supervised by Ratzinger during his teaching career at the University of Regensburg. The preface to the publication is by Cardinal Gerhard Müller.

Cardinal Zen: Vatican-China Agreement Will Be Disastrous for Entire Church — Parolin Doesn’t Have Faith, He Should Resign

Edit:
a few days ago there was an article in the Catholic Herald about the unofficial custodian of China relations with the Vatican and millions of Chinese Catholics, the disgraced and rotten Archbishop Theodore McCarrick. In the Italian Monthly, 30 Days, he was already on record.

Cardinal Zen sharply criticized the Vatican-China agreement and calls for the resignation of Cardinal Secretary Parolin "He should resign, I do not believe he has faith"

Hong Kong (kath.net) Joseph Cardinal Zen, the well-known Emeritus Archbishop of Hong Kong, sharply criticized the Vatican agreement with China. This is reported by Reuters. This agreement is an "incredible betrayal" of the Catholic faith. At the core of the agreement is that Chinese Catholics recognize the Pope, for which the Vatican will recognize the excommunicated bishops of the communist state church. In the end, two Catholic bishops would have to give up their diocesan seats.

Zen was especially critical of Cardinal Secretary of State Parolin. "He should resign, I do not think he has any faith, he's just a good diplomat in a very secular sense." The consequence of this agreement is serious for the whole world. It will be unbelievable for the Church. That's why, according to Zen, the Vatican agreement is kept as secret as possible. According to Zen, the agreement with the Vatican will be accepted by at most half of the Roman Catholic Church in China. "I'm afraid they'll do something irrational, they'll make a revolution."

Pope in Denial: Classic Projection

Edit: this is the strategy of people who abuse their power. Notice the lack of any argument. He’s talking about himself.

While God’s holy Church is made up of sinners, it also has its share of hypocrites who love to cry “scandal” to point out the failings of others and make themselves appear pure, Pope Francis said at morning Mass.

“The devil doesn’t have anything to do with repentant sinners because they look to God and say, ‘Lord, I’m a sinner. Help me,’ and the devil is impotent,” the pope said Sept. 20 during Mass in the Domus Sanctae Marthae.
“But with the hypocrites he is strong,” Pope Francis said. “He is strong, and he uses them to destroy, to destroy people, destroy society, destroy the church.”

French Gynecologist Says, “Abortion is Murder”



TV interview with Bernard de Rochambeau: "Abortion is Murder".

(Paris) Statements by Bertrand de Rochambeau,  President of the gynecologist association Syngof, the largest association of women's gynecologists and obstetricians in France, caused a great stir in France. The well-known gynecologist made only a factual statement.

De Rochambeau said on September 11 in an interview for Quotidien TV channel TMC, why he does not perform abortions. His clear and logical justification: Because abortion is murder. The doctor said:

"We are not here to kill lives".

De Rochambeau relies on freedom of conscience. The French abortion law, Loi Veil, enshrines the right to conscientious objection.

The journalist responded by saying that the law did not speak of killing a human being and asked de Rochambeau if abortion was murder. The gynecologist answered without hesitation:

"Yes Madam!"

"That's my belief, because that's the reality."

Thus, he drew on himself, just as the show was broadcast, the aggressive reaction of the French Minister of Health, Agnes Buzyn. "Nothing and no one" should "hinder" abortion, said the Minister in a press release signed with Marlène Schiappa, State Secretary for Gender Equality.

The writer Schiappa is a radical feminist from a Trotskyist family, who became a member of the Socialist Party (PS) in protest against her father. Since 2017 she belongs to Macron's movement La République en Marche (REM). With her State Secretariat, she promotes gender ideology and participated last June as the first French member of government in San Francisco (USA) at the oldest “Gay Pride” in the world. Since last year she is in dispute with France's gynecologist. Israel Nisand, President of the French professional association of gynecologists and obstetricians, was "shocked" by "false figures" spread by Shiappa. The Secretary of State had claimed that 75 per cent of all births in France were terminated, and described this as a form of medical "violence against women."

Hematologist Buzyn was not affiliated with her appointment to the government of President Emmanuel Macron. Since then she also belongs to the movement REM. Buzyn had already been a staunch defender of Loi Veil, the French abortion law named after Simone Veil (1927-2017). Those who are not pro-abortion advocates would have no chance to become health ministers in a French left-wing government. Acting President Macron has been a member of the Socialist Party until 2016 and was Minister of Economic Affairs under President Hollande. Agnes Buzyn, a Jew like Simone Veil, was first married to Pierre-François Veil, a son of Simone Veil.

In their statement, Buzyn and Schiappa reviled Bertrand de Rochambeau:

"We must not allow any attack on women's rights to free access to the intended termination of pregnancy, no matter which side it comes from."

Similar statements were made by senior government representatives of the medical association and feminist organizations. The statements of de Rochambeau were called "scandalous and intolerable". They are a "stain on the entire profession".

Syngof made it clear that de Rochambeau did not speak in his role as chair of the advocacy group, but stressed at the same time that "the right to freedom of conscience is not up for discussion".

US Psychologist: Those Who Use the Term Clericalism Are Participating in the Coverup

Edit: we noticed this word being childishly thrown around by some of the usual suspects, and it is so widespread that it’s being used by more trusted news sources also. This is a problem with heresy, and laicism (secularism) is being posed as the solution. 

Those who are familiar with the depredations to religion caused by government agencies, particularly in the United States, not to mention the deep moral depravity of government officials would do well to question more government and lay oversight. 

Does anyone still recall the Franklin Savings and Loan scandal?

US psychologist Richard Fitzgibbons has dealt with priests for almost 40 years. In all these cases involving children or adolescents, the perpetrator was previously involved in homosexual relationship

Washington DC. (Kath.net) The well-known US psychologist Richard Fitzgibbons criticized in a contribution to "LifeSiteNews" the explanations that the abuse crisis of the Catholic Church has something to do with clericalism. If you do this, you engaging in part of a coverup of the problem. Fitzgibbons recalled that the recent Pennsylvania Grand Jury Report clearly stated that there was clearly a homosexual problem. 73 percent of the victims can be assigned to this category.

In his opinion, the abuse crisis is rooted in psychological and spiritual conflicts among bishops and priests. It is about narcissism and "profound weakness in male confidence," which can lead to a homosexual relationship system.

In his clinic, he had treated victims of priests for almost 40 years. In any case involving children or adolescents, the perpetrator was previously involved in homosexual relationships. Fitzgibbons is director of the Institute for Marital Healing and has worked with thousands of couples for the last 34 years.

McCarrick’s Crimes Are “Private Matters” According to Pope’s Advisor



Cardinal Maradiaga, one of the closest pope's confidants, says after being heavily criticized after the revelations, he has received "death threats".

(Rome) As far as Pope's confidant Cardinal Maradiaga, Archbishop of Tegucigalpa and coordinator of the C9 Cardinal's Council is concerned, ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick's crimes committed under canon law are a "private matter" and an "administrative issue".

Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga is one of the busiest figures in the current pontificate, earning him the nickname "vice-pope". Indeed, the Primate of Honduras and former President of Caritas Internationalis is said to have ambitions after Francis’ succession.

Religion Digital, the main progressive news portal in the Spanish-speaking world, published an interview with the Cardinal, which sounded a bit different in tone than he has recently.

Aberro-lobby in the Vatican a media fantasy

In January 2016, in an interview with the daily newspaper El Heraldo de Honduras, he confirmed the existence of a "gay lobby in the Vatican" that puts "pressure" on Church leadership to make decisions in their favor. Among other things, Maradiaga said at the time:

El Heraldo: Was there an infiltration of the gay community into the Vatican or a similar attempt?

Cardinal Maradiaga: Not only that, the Holy Father himself has said that there is a "lobby" in that sense. The Holy Father is slowly trying to clean it up. These are things ... you understand and there are actions to serve them pastorally, but what is wrong can not be true.

Now he is saying:

"The gay lobby in the Vatican is something that exists more in the printing ink of the media than in reality."

Cardinal Maradiaga



Cardinal Maradiaga: Papal critics have "no faith"

The comment was based on the former apostolic nuncio, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, who in his famous dossier, published on the 26th of August, lists Cardinal Maradiaga as one of the ex-Cardinal McCarrick's patrons. The former Vatican top diplomat, sneered Maradiaga ironically, should know himself that the "gay lobby in the Vatican" is above all a media fantasy.

In general, the interview surprised by its non-answers, which in turn and in their way, nevertheless, also gave information.

The cardinal was specifically addressed on the Viganò dossier and the McCarrick case:

Religion Digital: The Viganò dossier accuses the Pope of covering up Cardinal McCarrick's homosexual relationships with seminarians and calls for his resignation. What do you think about this?

Cardinal Maradiaga: Making a private issue into a bomb that explodes in the world and whose splinters violate many people's beliefs does not seem right to me. I think that a management question should be spread on calmer and more objective criteria, and not with a load of bitter expressions. I think that Msgr. Viganò, whom I knew, is not the same person who writes and says these things.

Religon Digital: If it is true that Viganò informed the Pope, then why did not Francis act?

Cardinal Maradiaga: Actually, I do not know to what extent the Holy Father acted or not. This is an issue beyond my knowledge and competence. I believe that the Pope is a man of God who always acts with faith and wisdom.

Maradiaga's thesis: All is just a conspiracy against Francis

Already in the past, the Honduran cardinal had complained of a conspiracy against Pope Francis. It’s an allegation in which he repeatedly linked criticism against him with criticism of Francis, and was a victim of Franciscan critics who would attack him to actually hit Francis. Religion Digital has no problem picking up on this thesis and accentuating it.

Religion Digital: Is the Viganò dossier part of a conspiracy of the extreme right in the US that does not accept the Magisterium of Francis?

Cardinal Maradiaga: From the first moment one could perceive that there has been a reaction against Pope Francis, who wants to interfere with his teaching. Tensions are inevitable in the face of diversity, but to seek the truth and love the Church is a duty for all, especially when acting out of faith. Accepting or not accepting the person of the Pope does not come from the secular optics of sympathy and antipathy, but from that of the faith. When faith is lacking, the foundation is missing.

It is also not new that Cardinal Maradiaga, without responding directly to the criticism, denies that critics of the administration of Pope Francis have faith.

Homosexuality and priesthood

Religion Digital: Is there a gay lobby in the Vatican?

Cardinal Maradiaga: I have the impression that the idea of ​​a gay lobby in the Vatican is disproportionate. This is something that exists more in the printing ink of newspapers than in reality. It is obvious to me that the purpose of all these expressions, charged with poison and slander, is to strike the Holy Father. But if they have no faith, the actors of this media circus will not give up their lies.

Religion Digital then wanted to get from the pope's confidant an answer to a question that has become particularly explosive and topical in the context of recent scandals. However, the cardinal owes a clear answer to a clear question. Most readers of Religion Digital and probably most of the faithful can not do anything with his answer. The non-Catholics, certainly not.

Religion Digital: Can a homosexual who has achieved a clear psychological and sexual maturity become a priest?

Cardinal Maradiaga: All Bishops' Conferences in all countries of the world are aware of the absolute and apodictic principles of the Church, such as those set forth in Ratio Fundamentalis Institutionis Sacerdotalis.

The progressive medium was satisfied with that. Inquiries were waived.

Religion Digital: Did Cardinal McCarrick support the election of Francis, and did the Pope feel indebted to the North American Cardinal?

Cardinal Maradiaga: First and foremost, one has to understand the ultimate significance of this assertion in the case of Msgr. Viganò. It seems to me baseless. He was not in the conclave. I honestly do not believe it.

But that's not all.

"Hitman” and "death threats"

Two days after Religion Digital, the Italian daily Il Giornale also published an article with a sensational headline citing a conversation with Cardinal Maradiaga:

"The war in the Church does not know a truce: 'Eminence, if you speak, we'll kill'”

The author is Fabio Marchese Ragona, a journalist who has maintained close contacts with the Cardinal for many years. The subject is alleged death threats against the Honduran Cardinal..

"After the allegations and attacks of the past months, also through the dossier of Msgr. Carlo Maria Viganò, which targets the Pope and other cardinals, one of Francis' closest associates received anonymous phone calls, in Spanish, with serious death threats: If he publicly opposes those who accuse him, he will be dead."

While Cardinal Maradiaga, in an interview with Religion Digital, reneged on all his critics and those of Pope Francis, in an interview with Il Giornale he tries to give the impression that all his critics are threatening him with death.

Already on August 29, he had in an interview, described the Vaticanist Edward Pentin (EWTN, National Catholic Register) as a “hitman.” With several revelations published last spring, Pentin, a reputable professional journalist, had weighed in heavily on the Cardinal.

Allegations scratch the papabile image

But it is not only Pentin's revelations that scratch the papabile image of the archbishop of Tegucigalpa. A few days ago, a priest raised new charges, which according to Maradiaga's own account, was suspended without stating a reason and without any possibility of defending himself. The priest is the native Spaniard Bernardo Font, who addressed Pope Francis in July with an open letter.

Like ambassador widow Martha Reichmann Valladares, he feels cheated by Maradiaga.

Recently, the cardinal denounced the social networks he accuses of spreading criticism against him as "fecal networks." With respect to Il Giornale, he now more or less stated that any criticism of his person was a form of murder threat.

Observers doubt that such a defense strategy can last long, but above all that it helps Pope Francis.

They defended Maradiaga in the end of January and declared the then criticism of the cardinal for settled. But the criticism did not stop, and new revelations were added, so that in July Maradiaga had to sacrifice his right hand, Auxiliary Bishop Juan Jose Pineda, in order to keep himself. Pineda's departure, in turn, has a lot to do with homosexuality and the question of whether or not homosexuals can and should become priests, which Maradiaga answered only very evasively.

Cardinal Müller: “Corruption of Doctrine Always Brings Corruption of Morals Behind It”


“It is not clericalism, whatever that may be, but turning away from the truth and moral licentiousness are the roots of evil." Preaching for the priestly ordination of Brother Michael Sulzenbacher SJM. By Gerhard Cardinal Müller

ROM (kath.net) kath.net documents the preaching of the former Prefect of the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith, Gerhard Cardinal  Müller, upon the priestly ordination of Michael Sulzenbacher SJM in Rome in the church of Sant'Agnese in  on 15.9.2018 in full length - kath.net thanks Cardinal Müller for the friendly permission to publish [This was stolen from e-commerce website kath.net. Be sure to hit their paypal

Dear brother Michael Sulzenbacher,

I admire - in human terms - your courage and - spiritually speaking - your trust in God. In difficult times, you will approach the sacred altar. With your Adsum you express the readiness to sacrifice your whole being and life to God. This is the decisive step on your earthly pilgrimage and an hour of grace for the whole people of God.

But the Church, founded by God and made up of human beings, is, according to its human side, in a deep, man-made crisis of its credibility. In this dramatic moment, we suspect and fear the possible negative consequences of scandals and leadership mistakes. Involuntarily we think of the splitting of Western Christendom in the sixteenth century or the secularization of spiritual life in the wake of the Enlightenment and the French Revolution.

It is not clericalism, whatever that may be, but the turning away from the truth and moral lawlessness are the roots of the evil. The corruption of doctrine always entails the corruption of morality and manifests itself in it. The grave rejection of the sanctity of the Church without remorse is the result of relativizing the dogmatic foundation of the Church. This is the real cause of the shock and disappointment of millions of faithful Catholics. Analyzing the causes of secession from the one Church of Christ in the sixteenth century, the church historian Hubert Jedin (1900-1980) stated in the first volume of his "History of the Council of Trent": "The word reform hid heresy and the emerging schism.” (I, 151).

At that time as well as today there is much talk of reform.

What is behind the iridescent and media-friendly propaganda formula "reform of the Curia and the whole Church", if not - as I hope - the renewal in the truth of the revelation, and the following of Christ, is meant? It is not the secularization of the Church, but the sanctification of men for God, that is true reform.

It is not reform but a heresy to think that the doctrine of the Church can be kept, but for the sake of the weak man, one must invent a new pastoral which diminishes the claims of the truth of the Word of God and of Christian morality.

The salvation of sin is based on the truth that Jesus is the Son of God. Without the truth of the Incarnation, the Church would shrink to a mere innerwordly improvement agency. For our yearning for God and the desire for eternal life, it would have no meaning. The priest would only be the official of a social-religious movement. The Church does not gain in relevance and acceptance when she adds the drag of the spirit of the times to the world, but only when she brings the torch to it with the truth of Christ. We should not care about secondary issues and work on the agenda of others who do not want to believe that God alone is the origin and the sole purpose of man and of all creation.

For the real danger to today's humanity is the greenhouse gases of sin and the global warming of unbelief and the decay of morality when no one knows and teaches the difference between good and evil. The best environmentalist and nature lover is the Herald of the Gospel that there is only survival with God, not just limited and brief, but forever and ever.

In the opinion that Christian dogma is no longer the basis and criterion of morality and pastoral, a christological heresy emerges. This is to contrast Christ, the teacher of divine truth, and Christ the Good Shepherd. Christ, on the other hand, is one and the same person. He did not keep silent before Pilate, but "offered his good confession and acted as a witness to the truth." (1 Tim 6,14). To the relativism of Pilate, who embodies the cynicism of worldly power, Jesus contrasts the redeeming power of the truth of God: "Yes, I am a king, for that I am born and come into the world to bear witness to the truth, and everyone that is of the truth will hear my voice." (John 18:37).

One and the same Christ says of himself "I am the way and the truth and the life" (Jn 14: 6), who is also, as the bonus pastor, (Good Shepherd) the pastoral of the Church in person, revealing the mystery of His person and mission "I am the good shepherd, the good shepherd gives his life for the sheep." (Jn 10:11).

To be a witness to the truth of Christ and Servant of the Good Shepherd: this is the mystery and origin of the sacramental priesthood in the Church of the New Covenant.

The only high priesthood of "the sublime shepherd of his sheep" (Hebrews 13:20) excludes any other path to God other than through Jesus Christ, but the sacramental and ecclesiastical realization of redemption once for all by Christ himself, the ministry the mission of the apostles. In the Holy Orders, the apostolic authority and mission passes to the bishops and priests.

So, dear brother, at this hour the word of St. Paul to his fellow apostle and follower of Timothy: "Escape from false doctrine, be servant of the Word, proclaimer of the true faith, and fighter for the truth of Christ, so you will grasp the eternal life to which you have been called and for which you give the good confession to many witnesses.” (1 Tim 6,12). These many witnesses today are all gathered here: your mother and father, who gave you the first witnesses to believe in Christ, the "savior of the world" (John 4:42), with your grandparents, siblings, and brothers all relatives and friends, the confreres of your community, the many priests and deacons, and finally also me. As a bishop, I have the authority of Christ to give you share in the authority and mission of the Messiah through the laying on of my hands and the consecration prayer. Thus, in the person of Christ, the Head of the Church, with the power of the Holy Spirit, you can teach, guide and sanctify the believers (PO 2) so that they may come to the knowledge of the truth, love God above all and neighbor as himself even.

He is a true pastor who, with the love of God, looks upon the people entrusted to him and, in his spiritual activity and Christlike way of life, aligns himself with the high priest to whom he serves. The good shepherd is different from the hired one because He loves people with the heart of Jesus and Mary and because he uses his life for the flock of the Lord. The apostle is "the co-worker of God, servant of Christ, steward and dispenser of divine secrets" (1 Cor 4: 1, 2 Cor 6:1). He is concerned only with one thing, "in full reverence for the Lord, to win men for Christ." (2 Cor 5:11). He has been given the ministry of reconciliation for proclamation and sacramental mediation. And that is why consecrated priests, like the apostles, are "sent by Christ, and it is God who admonishes them: be reconciled to God." (2 Cor 5:20).

Certainly he also stands in the ranks of the faithful and needs on the way of the earthly pilgrimage - like all of us - the grace for his spiritual work and the forgiveness of God for his sins and omissions. But the truth of the faith he proclaims and the salvation he conveys in the sacraments does not, thank God, depend on the depth of his spirituality or the high morality of his life, but on the objective salvific effect of the sacraments. For Christ uses man, but He does not depend on them in His saving action. For He alone is the "author of eternal salvation" (Heb. 5: 9). While Christ was without sin, all believers and their shepherds need forgiveness. The confession of our sins belongs in the confessional. But if consecrated persons lead a double life in cynical contempt for their vocation, these deeds belong to the spiritual judgment. Evil acts must be condemned by the ecclesiastical authority, the wrongdoers judged to be punished according to the law. Anyone who considers ecclesiastical criminal law incompatible with the Gospel of love does not act out of mercy but out of contempt for the people who have been deceived of their rights and dignity. "Woe to the world with its seduction, there must be trials, but woe to the person who caused them." (Mt 18,7). This applies in a special way to those who, through the ministry, have become role models, typos, for the faithful, and are sanctified in the holy consecration with the Holy Spirit.

So I would like to remind you, dear brother, and all of us, before receiving the holy ordination, the apostle Peter's admonition to his fellow priests: "Carry as shepherds on the flock of God entrusted to you, not out of compulsion, but on a voluntary basis as God wills it, not out of greed, but out of affection: do not be rulers of your communities, but examples for the herd. For when the chief shepherd appears, you will receive the never-fading garland of glory." (1 Pet 4: 2-4).

And in the reverse direction, all believers should feel responsible to their pastors when they read in the Hebrew letter: "Think of your leaders who have proclaimed the word of God for you, look to the end of their lives, and imitate their faith ... Obey them, and submit to them, for they watch over you and must give an account of them, and they shall do it with joy, and not with sighs, pray for us. " (Heb 13: 7, 17f).

Dear Brother Michael, We pray for the grace that you will become a good priest after the Heart of Jesus and His dear Mother Mary. So be it! Amen.

Pope: “The Whole Mass Lasts 40 Minutes”



Pope Francis: "The whole Mass lasts 40 minutes, but the sermon does not take more than eight minutes".

(Rome) On September 15, Pope Francis visited the Mediterranean island of Sicily. Pope Francis said in his address to the faithful gathered on the Europaplatz in Piazza Armerina in the diocese of the same name:

"How many times have I heard, 'Ah, Father, I pray, but I'm not going to Mass, I'm not going there'. But why? Because the sermon bores me. It takes 40 minutes! '"

Then Francis answered that a sermon lasting 40 minutes was impossible, because the whole Mass was to last forty minutes, but the sermon doesn’t take more than eight minutes.

The Pope said:

"No, the whole Mass takes 40 minutes, but the sermon doesn’t last more than eight minutes.”

The Hunt for Viganò Begins


The Man Called By Jorge Bergoglio To Hunt Down Archbishop Vigano







Here is the man who has been given the task by Bergoglio to hunt down #Viganò. Let us pray that all the Holy Angels bring confusion and obstruction to everything he; Domenico Giani; does to that end!

"If Viganò is afraid for his life to the point where he has to destroy his cell phone and go into hiding overseas, it is not only out of fear of being tracked down by a staffer of the apostolic nunciatures and missions of the Holy See spread throughout the world — the "long arm" of the Secretariat of State that has ordered discovery of Viganò's whereabouts — but also if not principally out of dread for the intelligence capabilities of the Vatican City State's paramilitary Corps of Gendarmes of the Vatican City State currently led by Domenico Giani.

An ex-officer of Italy's much-feared financial police force called the Guardia di Finanza, the current Commandant of the Corps and Inspector General of the combined police and security forces of the Vatican City State is also the lead bodyguard of Pope Francis, just as he was for Pope Benedict. Every member of the Police and Security Forces of the Corps of Gendarmes, just like every member of the fabled Swiss Guards, is a former member respectively of Italy or Switzerland's military or police forces.

When Abp. Viganò served as secretary general of the Vatican City State, General Giani reported to him. Now, in a dramatic turn of events, it is Gianni who has been ordered by his superiors not only to ensure the personal security of the Pope, but equally coordinate in the hunt for Viganò.

[Ordo Militaris Radio] In 2008, the Vatican City State joined INTERPOL, the world's largest international association of police forces with offices based in 192 countries. As a result, the Vatican now has access to tremendous resources and databases through its official police contacts and INTERPOL office locations throughout the globe.

The Vatican intelligence services even have a Gruppo Intervento Rapido (GIR), or "rapid-intervention group," which is known to possess highly sophisticated and innovative technological and logistical assets used in the furtherance of its assignments.

The greatest danger to the life of Viganò is said to arise from Freemasonic elements of the Santa Alleanza or Entità possessing absolutely no moral scruples who will do everything in their power to prevent the archbishop from making any additional disclosures not only embarrassing to the Holy See, but even more, capable of destroying the reputations and concrete chances of certain cardinals from being elected to the Throne of St. Peter.

Outside of Italy, and even inside the country, it is not generally known to Catholics just how well inserted ideological Freemasons are into the intelligence services of the military apparatus of Italy and other European nations, and consequently the Vatican City State, which derives a number of its police, security and intelligence forces from among those nations' ranks.

While it is known that powerful groups of freemasons such as Propaganda Due ("P2"), who in the past had successfully infiltrated Vatican institutions such as the Institute for the Works of Religion (Vatican bank), have been disbanded by the Italian government, it is not known to many that successor groups of dangerous ideological Freemasons have succeeded in reconstituting themselves under different labels and taking control of key dicasteries of the Roman Curia.
Viganò and his heroic whistleblowing pose more than a threat to him personally, they pose a very real and credible threat to entire networks of very talented individuals who will stop at nothing to destroy the Catholic Church as we know it from within, once and for all.

The Vatican's search for Viganò, therefore, is not so much a mission of the Santa Alleanza to accomplish than an exercise of unholy powers to fulfill."

Please, no applause at the farewell


Claudio Scimone (1934-2018)

(Rome) On September 6, the well-known Italian conductor Claudio Scimone died in his hometown of Padua. With his last will he set an example and rejected a bad habit.

During his studies with Dimitri Mitropoulos and Franco Ferrara, he worked as a music critic in the 1950s. He gained international fame with the chamber orchestra I Solisti Veneti, founded by him in 1959, which he directed until his death. The discography recorded with this orchestra by Scimone includes around 300 recordings. Scimone's Vivaldi discography alone includes more than 250 works. He has conducted a variety of orchestras worldwide, from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in London to the New Japan Philharmonic in Tokyo, the Belgian Radio Symphony Orchestra and the French Radio to the Bamberger Symphoniker, to name a few. Overall, the number of concerts conducted by Scimone on all continents is estimated at over 6000.

From 1961-1974 he taught chamber music at the Conservatory in Venice first, then that of Verona. From 1974-1993 he was director of the Conservatory of Padua. From 1979-1986 he directed the orchestra of the Gulbenkian Foundation in Lisbon in addition to Solisti Veneti, whose honorary conductor he became after that time. His academic research was mainly works of the 18th and 19th centuries. These included the reconstruction of the Vivaldi opera "Orlando Furioso".

The Requiem for the maestro took place last Saturday at his request in the Chiesa degli Eremitani in his hometown of Padua. Napoleon Bonaparte had closed the church and the former Augustinian monastery in 1806, where once Martin Luther spent the night of his trip to Rome in 1511, when the then Augustinian priest spoke better of Rome than the "reformer" Luther a few years later.

The monastery is no longer there, but the church with its magnificent frescoes from the 14th century has served the Catholic cultus again since 1808. Not only did the maestro want his funerary office to be held here, but in death he gave a lesson on decent behavior and liturgical bad habits.

In the church, his last will was read out, asking the congregation not to follow the fashionable bad habit of applauding in the church or cemetery "but to say goodbye to them both inside and outside the church" to renounce applause to match the seriousness and meaning of the moment.

This desire was followed by the more than a thousand present, including the President of the Italian Senate, the church rights activist Elisabetta Alberti-Casellati (Forza Italia), which is why the coffin of the great musician and Christian believers reposed in complete silence after the Requiem, at which his Soloisti Veneti played, as he was carried from the church, accompanied only by the prayers of the priest and the ringing of the death knell, as it is customary in Italy as "Ausläuten".

TV Station of Italian Bishops’ Conference Puts “Table” in Most Important Pilgrimage Site in Christendom


The Laurantanian Basilica of the House of Loretto 


(Loreto) "What do you do to avoid celebrating ad orientem?" With these words, the traditional website Messa
in Latino commented on the "table" that was set up in the Santa Casa, in the Holy House of the Annunciation of the Angel to Mary.

In this way, the celebration of the Novus Ordo with the back to the east and the image of grace becomes possible.

"There has never been anything like that in the Holy House!"

The reason claimed for the transformation were apparently the  "necessities" for the depiction of the Mass at the TV station TV2000, which is owned by the Italian Episcopal Conference.

"What is scandalous for believers watching TV2000 in showing them the direction of celebration as it has been for centuries in the Holy House?"

So far, no criticism by believers in this regard has become known. It is therefore rather the responsibility of TV2000, "who do not like that in the Holy House of Loreto the doctrinal provisions on celebration were observed," said Messa in Latino.

Among other things, Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger, the later Pope Benedict XVI, celebrated several times (1988, 1991, 1999 ...) in the Santa Casa and in each case ad orientem.”  In 2000, the Roman Congregation for Divine Worship and the Order of the Sacraments clarified that:

"It would be a grave mistake to think that the main direction of sacrifice is to the celebrating community ... the spiritual attitude (of the celebrating priest) must always be the representative of the whole Church versus the divine Jesus Christ".

Tabernacle and knee benches removed




The new "table" in the Holy House of Loreto

The new "table" in the Holy House is not the first intervention in the famous pilgrimage church. In 2010, the Tabernacle and the Holy of Holies were removed from the Santa Casa. The reason given for the move was the growing number of tourists who would not enter the house as pilgrims. However, this made the house of Mary a kind of "museum".

In addition, at the turn of the year 2017/2018, the pews were replaced in the basilica. The meaning of this action is explained to the faithful only with "rennovation mania." There were pews before that, too. The difference between the old and new pews is that the new ones have no more knee benches. The faithful people, who are in the majority flocking to pilgrimage, have to “toss out" kneeling, says Messa in Latino commenting at that time. A signature petition of believers did not succeed. The incumbent prelate of the basilica points out that the decision to purchase the new pews was made shortly before his appointment in May 2017. Now they are just there, and you can not change that anymore.

Historically the most important place of pilgrimage in the Catholic world

The sanctuary of Our Lady of Loreto, also known as the Lauretan Basilica, is located in the Italian Marches and is the historically most important place of pilgrimage of the Catholic world. Since the end of the Crusades there is the house of the Holy Family of Nazareth. In this house the angel announced to Mary the Incarnation of God. While the house has been in Loreto for about 750 years, the foundations of the house can be seen in the Annunciation Basilica of Nazareth.




The Holy House before the removal of the Tabernacle (2010)

Today's pilgrimage church towers like a divine castle on a ridge and offers an impressive view of the Adriatic Sea. It dates from the 15th century. The magnificent facade was begun in 1571. A fateful year. In the Battle of Lepanto south of the Adriatic, Christians were able to defeat the Turkish fleet and thus stop the Islamic advance on Europe, at least at sea. In gratitude for the victory, the Christian commander in chief, John of Austria (Don Juan d'Austria), Marcantonio Colonna and Sebastiano Venier, released their galley prisoners who had been sentenced to rowing on ships for crimes. For their part, these pilgrims made a pilgrimage to Maria Loreto and brought their galley chains as a gift to the Blessed Mother. From them were forged the great church grates, which can still be admired today in the basilica.

The place is so important that the great nations and linguistic spaces have donated chapels in it, so there is a French, Slavic, American, Polish, Spanish and also a German chapel.

Popes and saints visited the sanctuary, among the younger ones were St. Therese of Lisieux and St. Gianna Beretta Molla.

But nothing seems to be safe from the rage of innovation.

No Episcopal Appointments from Rome in a Month



For a month, no episcopal appointments have taken place. What is happening in the Congregation of Bishops?  In the picture their Prefect Marc Cardinal Ouellet.

(Rome) Bishops have not been appointed by the Holy See for nearly a month. Since last August 18, the Vatican press office has not announced a new episcopal appointment.

"Something is happening in the Congregation for the Bishops," said the Spanish news site InfoVaticana, which is being targeted by the Vatican for its critical coverage of Pope Francis' administration.

Every day at noon a daily bulletin is published by the Vatican Press Office. It has its own section "Resignations and Appointments". Since mid-August, retirements have been announced but no appointments of new bishops.

Due to the total number of dioceses around the world, there are usually several new appointments every week. For example, in the last week of May, Pope Francis appointed three archbishops, four bishops and two auxiliary bishops.

Prefect of the Roman Episcopal Congregation is the "Ratzingerian" Marc Cardinal Ouellet. Since his election, Pope Francis largely marginalized the Prefect. In episcopal appointments, especially those involving diocese that are "strategically important," appointments have often been made to the Congregation for the past five years. Cardinal Wuerl from the McCarrick circle, now charged by a grand jury, was influenced by Francis to make appointments the United States. His resignation is in the air.

The "break" in episcopal appointments coincides with the publication of the Pennsylvania Report, which severely incriminates Catholic clerics over the sexual abuse of minors.

Sex Abuse is a Big Joke for Pope



Edit: this was posted by Zenit English  The comments section on Twitter is savage.

Lifesite Editor, Henry Westen writes:

The photo of smiling faces, unfortunately, lends itself to the interpretation that top leaders in the Church do not take the abuse crisis seriously. One can only imagine what victims abused by Catholic clergy are experiencing while viewing such a photo.
At least they got one to retire at 75, the customary time for a bishop to submit his resignation.  It is doubtful that anything will remedy this situation but real and meaningful sacrifices and restoration of the practice of the Church’s precepts...

Anyway, if you think that Viganò’s fears of being murdered are unfounded, it wouldn’t be the first time witnesses and whistleblowers were threatened with death.
He’s covered up before, as with notorious Modernist, progressive, Rossi.

Vatican Confirms Investigation of Sistine Choir

(Rome) In addition to investigating the misconduct of a bishop in the United States, Pope Francis also ordered a review of the finances of the Pontifical Choir of the Sistine Chapel. This was confirmed today by the Vatican Press Office, without giving any further details.

The two topics are unrelated.

The daily La Stampa, which is also the producer of the ecclesiastical news portal Vatican Insider, and is coordinated by the papal house Vaticanista Andrea Tornielli, reported that Francis had established an investigation against Maestro Massimo Palombella, the musical director of the world-famous Sistine choir, and investigative director Michelangelo Nardella. The charge, according to the Turin newspaper, is for embezzlement, fraud and money laundering.

Critics are convinced that since the emergence of Mgr. Domenico Bartolucci in 1997, the famous choir "is only a shadow of its former greatness," said Vatican writer Sandro Magister in 2010.

Pope Benedict XVI. emphasized his sympathy for Maestro Bartolucci, who was not only the person, but also his understanding of sacred music and its repertoire. The musical reference Bartolucci, who celebrated throughout his life in the traditional form of the Roman Rite, was the Gregorian chant and the polyphonic tradition of Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina (1525-1594). The famous composer himself was choirmaster of the Sistine Chapel.

In 2010, Benedict XVI created. the then 93-year-old Bartolucci cardinal. At the same time he appointed, however, at the suggestion of his Cardinal Secretary of State Tarcisio Bertone the Salesian Palombella to the new choral master. An appointment that triggered considerable criticism not only in traditional circles.

Main critic was the Vaticanist Sandro Magister.

The Pontifical Choir of the Sistine Chapel has existed since 1471. Its task is entirely in the musical arrangement of the liturgical celebrations of the Pope.

The Media Has Long Known Pope’s Dishonesty as He Protected Progressive Predators Like Daneels

“If Coverup Fails”

Edit: this whole media frenzy could have been launched years ago since most of the information has been available for years. Even Mark Shea knew that Bergoglio had rehabilitate the perfidious Daneels.  What’s really interesting is how dead the consciences of these men are!

In 2010 it became known that the then Bishop of Bruges had abused his nephew for years. Cardinal Danneels wanted to cover up the incident, as a secret recorded conversation proves

Brussels (kath.net) In 2010, it became known that Roger Vangheluwe, the then reigning Bishop of Bruges, had been abusing his nephew for years. On April 23, 2010 Vangheluwe offered Pope Benedict XVI. his resignation, which one hour later (!) was accepted. On the same day, Archbishop of Mechelen-Brussel, who was already retired, and former Primate of Belgium, Godfried Cardinal Danneels (archival photo), said: "There has not even been the appearance of an attempt to cover up the matter or to spread over it the mantle of secrecy."

Before the resignation, there was a conversation between the victim, his family and Cardinal Danneels. On August 28, 2010, the Belgian newspaper "De Standaard" published the transcript of this conversation. This was recorded secretly, it documents the perfidy with which Cardinal Danneels at that time tried to cover up the deed of his episcopal brother and to silence the victim.

Mark Vangheluwe, the victim, published the book "Letter to the Pope" in 2017. In it he describes his years of attempts to make his uncle admit his guilt and take responsibility. At the end of this development was the conversation of April 2010. Roger Vangheluwe was thereby cornered. Now he bet on Danneels, who would have probably launched a last attempt for him to get the coals out of the fire for him.

Benjamin Leven has translated on his blog the transcript of the Flemish and provided comments, read yourself in German( see link below). Leven was editor-in-chief of the journal "Gottesdienst" and "praxis gottesdienst" in Trier from 2013 to 2015 (both published by Herder Verlag) and has been the editor of Herder Korrespondenz in Berlin since October 2015, since February 2017 in Rome.

Pope Sends Felicitations to Murderous Sandanistas



Papal sympathies for the Sandinista government of Daniel Ortega

Edit: earlier, he called down divine wrath upon them.  What happened? 

(Managua) On August 30th, US columnist and native Argentinian Andrés Oppenheimer lamented Pope Francis' silence on the situation in Nicaragua. Oppenheimer called the papal behavior "shameful" and demanded an opinion on the "death of at least 322 people in the past four months in protests against the government." Other sources speak of over 400 dead killed by government units or paramilitary groups affiliated with the left-wing government. Meanwhile, it was known that Pope Francis would take a position, just not in the sense of Oppenheimer.

Anyone who has known the history of Nicaragua since the 1970s knows how much the local Jesuits and Marxist liberation theology had on the Sandinista revolution, the overthrow of Somoa and the establishment of a socialist dictatorship. In connection with Pope John Paul II's visit to Nicaragua in 1983, this break through the middle of the Church became particularly visible internationally. In the 1980s, the Western European New Left came up with enthusiasm for what was then the latest "socialist experiment.”

While the Jesuit and Minister of Culture Ernesto Cardenal in 1958 greeted John Paul II at the airport, sarcastically falling to his knees, he was greeted at the same time with a question that he defied the call to resign his ministry, as Church law prohibits clerics from the exercise of political office. At the adjoining Pope's Mass in Managua, the regime and its clerical supporters occupied the square in front of the Pope's pavillion with convinced Sandinistas who whistled and shouted at the Pope. That was the tolerance of Catholic Marxists towards the Pope.

In 1983, the Sandinists, whether clerical or anticlerical, and their European supporters saw the pope in Rome as an enemy. In 2018 they will see one of their own in him.

Tempora mutantur.

Greetings from Pope Francis to Comandante Ortega

As it is now known, Pope Francis actually commented on Nicaragua on August 31, a day after Oppenheimer's column, albeit quite differently from what the columnist had hoped.

Pope Francis sent a message of greeting to Nicaraguan Sandinista President Daniel Ortega via the Apostolic Nunciature in Managua. The occasion was the National Day, celebrated on 15 September, commemorating the 197th anniversary of the country's independence from Spain.

Yesterday, the "Comrade" Rosario Murillo, Vice President of Nicaragua and wife of President Ortega, "pleased" the public announced the contents of the papal letter.

"I deeply appreciate the wonderful, fitting letter of the Holy Father, Pope Francis, to Comandante Daniel Ortega and the people of Nicaragua. And we appreciate the attention of Lord Nuncio, with whom he sent us the letter of the Holy Father, that we might celebrate together in these days of the Fatherland and of the heart.”

And what exactly did Pope Francis write to the Comandante?

"His Excellency, Mr. José Danel Ortega Saavedra
President of the Republic of Nicaragua
Managua
On the occasion of the National Day of Nicaragua, I cordially greet all the sons and daughters of this beloved land and assure you of my prayer that Jesus Christ, the Prince of Peace, will grant you the graces of a brotherly reconciliation and a peaceful and united life together.
Francis PP. "

Liaisons dangereuses McCarrick–Bergoglio

Moral Theologian: Bergoglio’s Election Was Illegally Organized



Pope Francis with Cardinal McCarrick: "Bergoglio is my friend".

(Rome) In the case of McCarrick and the entanglement of Pope Francis, the well-known moral theologian and Dominican, Fr Giovanni M. Cavalcoli, has spoken up and has conceded to those who say that the election of Pope Francis was organized in an illegal manner.

The case of ex-Cardinal McCarrick, formerly Archbishop of Washington and formerly of Newark, severely burdens the Catholic Church in the United States. Due to the so-called Viganò dossier of the former Apostolic Nuncio in the US, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, the case became a burden for the universal Church. The former top diplomat of the Vatican accuses Pope Francis, of rehabilitating and promoting McCarrick and repealing  Pope Benedict XVI’s sanctions, although he had been informed of his sexual depravity. Msgr. Viganò also accuses Francis of having chosen McCarrick's friends and confidants, whom the nuncio regards as a “homo-lobby", since his election. Three of McCarrick’s protégés Francis has even raised to Cardinals.

"Homo statue" in the church, but the pastor does not understand the criticism


Before the conclave, a "very influential" person visited him

Implicitly, the head of the Church is accused of promoting "homo-heresy" (Dariusz Oko) in the Church: through precipitously rising careers for aberrosexuals or aberrophiles who have covered for an aberrosexual milieu in the Church or (aberrosexual) sexual abuse of minors (or still cover them up).

The fact is that homophilic circles inside and outside the Church are massively trying to overturn church doctrine on homosexuality. Examples of this are breaking out in all directions in the West. One of the most recent examples is the parish of San Martino in Azzano, in the municipality of Seravezza in the Italian province of Lucca, where in the summer a statue was erected in the parish church showing two men kissing each other. The statue was only removed when it came to protests in the social networks. Neither the pastor, Don Hermes Luppi, nor other parish officials could understand the criticism of the Homo statue.

"Bergoglio is my friend!"

Now the moral theologian P. Cavalcoli has spoken with a "spontaneous reaction" to the traditional website Messa in Latino to the case McCarrick and the allegations against Pope Francis. He commented on a highly explosive statement by Msgr. Antonio Livi, the former Dean of the Philosophical Faculty of the Lateran University, adding a no less controversial statement.

Father Cavalcoli OP




Msgr. Livi has participated in a meeting on 1 October 2013 at the Villanova Uiversity. This is the oldest and most respected Catholic college in Pennsylvania, the state where the homosexual Pennsylvania Report (Homo) exposed large-scale sexual abuse of minors by clerics. The RAI Vaticanist Aldo Maria Valli had drawn attention to this meeting at the end of August.

McCarrick acted as a speaker (see video below) a few months after the election of Pope Francis,1 and boasted that Jorge Mario Bergoglio was his longtime friend. In his own words the emeritus archbishop of Washington, at that time Cardinal, who, according to his own admission obviously had contributed to the election of Bergoglios himself, said:

"Bergoglio is my friend!"

Visit from a "very influential" person

McCarrick revealed in his enthusiasm that in the period following the resignation of Benedict XVI.,  the conclave was visited by a "very influential" person, "a gentleman". So it was a layman, not a cleric. He had spoken to him about the then archbishop of Buenos Aires and promoted his election as pope. If the papal election succeeds, said the great unknown, whose name McCarrick did not reveal, Bergoglio will reform the Church within five years.

At the same time, McCarrick left no doubt that he was delighted with Bergoglio's successful election. The cardinal used terms and phrases that are typical of Pope Francis. McCarrick's familiarity and agreement went so far that in his speech the Cardinal openly called on Bergoglio to radically rebuild the College of Cardinals, the World Episcopacy and the Roman Curia. McCarrick expressed the certainty that Pope Francis would be able to appoint Cardinals within two years (ie by 2015) after the way he is, thereby implementing the hoped-for fundamental transformation.

Francis "will change the papacy"

McCarrick literally expressed his hope that this Pope will "change the papacy."

So did the ex-cardinal of today mean that Pope Francis should appoint aberrosexual fanatics in his name as cardinals?


For Francis to appoint more Cardinals just like me.



In fact, Francis made three close McCarrick friends cardinals (CupichTobinFarrell ). All three belong to the modernist direction in the Church and all three spoke out in word and deed for a change in Church doctrine and attitude to aberrosexuality.

Former nuncio Carlo Maria Viganò reports in his dossier on how much he marveled at a visit to Rome, Cardinal McCarrick after the election of Francis and in spite of  the sanctions imposed on him by Benedict XVI. to go in undisturbed in Santa Marta and go out. As we know today, he had risen to Francis’ closest circle.

Vaticanist Aldo Maria Valli concluded:

"Is it not time, in the name of the ever-emphasized transparency, that a clarifying word be said to the Liaisons dangereuses McCarrick-Bergoglio?"

Election of Pope Francis was orchestrated in an illegal manner

Monsignor Antonio Livi became even clearer, saying that Bergoglio's choice was orchestrated in an "illegal" manner.

Moral theologian P. Cavalcoli OP said:

"Msgr. Livi is right in saying that Bergoglio's election was illegally orchestrated by the modernist group of St. Gallen, who also evidently included McCarrick, who spoke at the convention in the style of the well-known, arrogant boast of the modernists. "

Cavalcoli, however, added:

"But that does not mean that his choice was invalid, and Francis is not the true Pope. If he was not, the College of Cardinals would have let us know. The vote was not Illegal but how the vote was procured. It is forbidden - as dictated by logic - that the Cardinals come to a concord among themselves before the conclave. If that was not the case, why would the conclave be needed? 
The election of a pope is not a political election, preceded by election propaganda, but an act of free, personal conscience, which is why every cardinal decides without external influence and in complete independence before God and the elective body. "

In short, a papal election must be made without a prior visit by "very influential" persons.

"Call Them Modernists"

Fr. Cavalcoli added a request to his thoughts:

"An Advice on the Terms: To name these villains, the term 'progressive' should not be used, which is completely innocent. Call them what they really are: modernists, say, heretics like the Rahnerians. For progress and tradition are essential factors in the life of the Church that complement each other, such as inhaling and exhaling.”
