Cardinal Schönborn Hospitalized Till January for Lung Infarction

The Viennese archbishop will spend several weeks in a hospital after a lung infarct for hospital treatment 

Edit: Lung infarction is the death of part of the lung's tissue due to a loss of blood supply.  It looks more serious than the Archdiocese is letting on. 

Vienna (kath.net/KAP) The Viennese Archbishop, Cardinal Christoph Schönborn (archive photo), is on the way to recovery after a timely recognized and well-treated lung infarction and is now well again. This is what the Archdiocese of Vienna reported to Kathpress on Wednesday. To rebuild his strength, however, the treating physicians advised Cardinal Schönborn to remain at the hospital for treatment over several weeks. The Viennese archbishop has been in hospital since the beginning of last week.

Cardinal Schönborn "unfortunately can not participate in public masses or appointments during the Christmas period and into January," the Archdiocese stated. He thanked for the many wishes for recovery and "asks all for understanding whose plans were confused by his illness."

"The Vatican is currently a circus that condemns truth and justice to death."


Ariel Levi di Gualdo, Jewish convert, Catholic priest, publisher of the theological Internet magazine "L'Isola das Patmos".

(Rome) Ariel Levi di Gualdo is a sober, calm man, but it hardly remains quiet when he raises his voice. Yesterday, he did so with an interview and the usual clear words. The Jewish convert and Catholic priest said: "The Vatican is currently a circus that condemns truth and justice to death." And also: "The Church today treats those like Pol Pot who disagree within the Church."
In the struggle between Judaism and Christianity, Ariel Stefano Levi di Gualdo decided for Christ and became a Catholic priest: born in 1963, he is a dogmatist specializing in the history of Dogma, a pupil of P. Peter Gumpel. With the convert's fire he sees many things sharply and says so. Before he became a priest, he completed a degree in Sociology, which he completed with the controversial work "Bitter Grasses - The Century of Zionism". At the same time it is a kind of reckoning with Zionism and a departure of the Jew from his Judaism. In the foreword he wrote: "The tremendous tragedy of the Shoah has returned the Jews the lost purity by producing the social taboo of worshiping the Jews, which prevents the public from being told that the Emperor is naked."
In 2014, already a priest, he submitted a polemic against the homosexualization of the church. Already in June 2013, he expressed himself in connection with the resignation of Benedict XVI. about the "destructive mischief" of the gay lobby in the Church.

Violent Grandson of Minnesota Football Legend Resigns After Sex-Abuse Allegations in Central Minnesota

Edit: about 7 years ago in 2012, incredibly, a grandson of famous coach, John Galiardi, made a credible threat of physical violence on Facebook against someone who was merely pointing out the obvious problem with Saint John’s Abbey and Collegeville.  At the time, it was unclear exactly what was going on, but in the last few months things have become clearer.  This story didn’t get much traction nationally and none of the stories mentioned that Johnny Benson-Gagliardi had previously threatened a citizen journalist on Facebook who was exposing his grandfather’s complicity in the ongoing evils of the Modernist Monastery.

Meanwhile, the most recent posting on Pine Curtain and some of the previous stories highlighting this situation, have gotten a few hundred views. Mr. Gagliardi has resigned from his coaching post at Kimball High School.  There is no further information since this was made public at the end of November.

Knights of Malta Sponsor Degenerate Event with Drag Queen

VIENNA, Austria, December 3, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) ― More than 120 people answered a young Catholic hero’s summons to pray outside his nation’s most important cathedral while a sacrilegious pro-LGBT event happened inside.

 Alexander Tschugguel, 26, has released a video in which he described the rosary held outside Vienna’s St. Stephen’s Cathedral on the night of Saturday, November 30. “It was a wonderful evening,” he said. “So many fantastic people were here.”

 Tschugguel said that more than 120 people assembled and prayed three or more rosaries. They also sang Advent hymns. The Catholic activist, who became famous in October after removing pagan idols from a Catholic church in Rome and throwing them in the Tiber, was filmed by Gloria TV addressing the crowd in German.

 The group prayed for those who were attending the pro-LGBT “Believe Together” concert organized in St. Stephen’s Cathedral by the Austrian Knights of Malta and gay rights activist Gery Keszler. Ostensibly to raise funds for HIV/AIDS relief, the event featured Austria’s most famous drag queen Thomas Neuwirth.

What’s especially comical about this interview is how the journalist at Rolling Stone Magazine thinks that the pledge by a large number of young people not to masturbate in November is anti-Semitic.

It looks like the ADL has gone too far.

Regarding birthdays

Think of this the next time you are thinking of someone's birthday, maybe yours....


The Satanic Bible  regarding Birthdays:

The highest of all holidays in the Satanic religion is the date of one’s own birthday. This is in direct contradiction to the holy of holy days of other religions, which deify a particular god who has been created in an anthropomorphic form of their own image, thereby showing that the ego is not really buried. The Satanist feels: ‘Why not really be honest and if you are going to create a god in your image, why not create that god as yourself.” 

Every man is a god if he chooses to recognize himself as one. So, the Satanist celebrates his own birthday as the most important holiday of the year. After all, aren’t you happier about the fact that you were born than you are about the birth of someone you have never even met? Or for that matter, aside from religious holidays, why pay higher tribute to the birthday of a president or to a date in history than we do to the day we were brought into this greatest of all worlds? Despite the fact that some of us may not have been wanted, or at least were not particularly planned, we’re glad, even if no one else is, that we’re here! You should give yourself a pat on the back, buy yourself whatever you want, treat yourself like the king (or god) that you are, and generally celebrate your birthday with as much pomp and ceremony as possible.”
(Anton Szandor LaVey, (Air) Book of Lucifer – The Enlightenment, Avon Books, 1969, Ch XI, “Religious Holidays,” p. 96)
Modern Pelagian Catholics, screaming about paganism in the Vatican, are completely immersed in pagan practices themselves.  So sad.
Judaized aka Gnosticized, Pelagianized, and Paganized.....  what more can Satan want?

Independent Bishop: “Islam is One of Satan’s Religions”

[NPD] A faithful patron of the Munich Pegida erected a 3 meter high wooden cross, as a symbol of the Christian faith and the fundamental roots of Europe.  So Heinz Meyer, his boss of Pegida Munich, came up with something original for his event on 23.06.17.  He was able to find  a Catholic bishop from the United States for the evening, Bishop Markus Ramolla, who performed the dedication and blessing of the cross.  At the opening of the event Meyer introduced the cross engraved with the words "Deus Vult".  "Deus Vult" was the battle cry of the ancient Crusaders and means something like "God wills it".  As can be heard in the following video, this cross will be a companion of Pegida München for the next few years.  In addition, Heinz Meyer recalled the year 1683, where the Turks at the gates of Vienna intended the conquest and Islamization of Europe, but were defeated despite numerical superiority.

The opponents of Pegida once again proved their disrespect.  Even as the clergyman spoke his prayer in front of the cross, the incorrigible counter-demonstrators were whistling and blaring in between, giving nothing but stupid comments.  The laughter of the evening was afforded by this Antifa photographer, who outraged all seriously about a camera directed at him and after his harassment even the organizer Heinz Meyer screamed in his face:



Conclusion: All in all, this event can be described as successful, even if one can argue about whether a bishop, who probably belongs to the wealthier people of this globe, is really representative of Christianity.  However, after all, he has clearly argued for the defense of European values ​​and openly stated the fact that the Koran unequivocally calls for the killing of Christians.  This man was so honest that he could not make his way home without police protection in a country where there is supposedly freedom of expression.

Chilean Bishops Conference Back Marxist Protesters Burning Churches

Chile's Conference of Bishops have echoed the calls of protesters for a new Chilean constitution as protesters ransack, loot, burn, and desecrate Catholic churches throughout the country.
This past month Chileans have seen their country ravaged by a small minority of revolutionaries, supported by the media, United Nations, and foreign international powers. Their aim is to destroy the legal system of the country and establish a communist tyranny similar to that of Venezuela and Cuba.
The protesters have an apparent affinity for fire, as they have burned down subway stations; supermarkets; small town markets and shops; commercial malls; government offices, such as the civil register for births, marriages, divorces and deaths; and they have set a couple of female police officers on fire.

Even the Catholic Church has not been spared from these acts of arson. Protesters have ransacked churches, removing pews and other works of art only to burn them in a pile outside. They have even gone as far as setting fire to the once-beautiful Iglesia de la Vera Cruz (Church of the True Cross) in Santiago, where an actual splinter from the original cross on which Christ was crucified is venerated. Fortunately, the splinter was saved from the flames.
However, images of the Virgin Mary were not so fortunate. Several were desecrated along with the church buildings themselves, which were spray-painted with images of satanic pentagrams. The host, which devout Catholics believe is the body, blood, soul, and divinity of Jesus Christ when consecrated, was also taken and trampled on. Statues of Catholic priests, which were previously displayed on public avenues, were also destroyed.

Protesters have also graphitized city walls with slogans such as “cura muerto, abono para mi huerto,” Spanish for: “[a] dead priest, [is] fertilizer for my garden.” Other graffiti states that the only church that enlightens is that which is in flames.

Evil USCCB Gives $750,000 to Promote Sodom

[Lepanto Institute] Over the summer, the Catholic Campaign for Human Development (CCHD), an anti-poverty program run by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), provided a $750,000 Strategic National Grant to the Ignatian Solidarity Network(ISN).  Shortly after the June announcement of the grant, the Lepanto Institute reportedthat the ISN regularly held workshops promoting homosexual and transgender activism.  In response to concerned Catholics regarding the promotion of sexual perversion from ISN’s workshops – which included presentations by same-sex “marriage” advocacy organizations like New Ways Ministry and Dignity USA – the USCCB’s Communications Manager for Social Mission, Alexandra Carroll claimed that ISN“was not encouraging or promoting anything contrary to Catholic teaching.”
But over this past weekend, from November 16-18, ISN held its annual Ignatian Family Teach-In for Justice, which again included condemned homosexual advocacy groups and pro-homosexual messaging.  As with previous events, the Teach-In included pro-homosexual speakers and workshops on homosexual integration into the life of the Catholic Church.  The difference in this year’s Teach-In, in contrast with all the previous ones, is that this year’s was funded, in part, by the CCHD.
It should be noted that the Catechism of the Catholic Church is explicitly clear that homosexual acts are “acts of grave depravity” and are “intrinsically disordered.”  This means that engaging in homosexual activity, which includes all forms of romantic affection, are mortally sinful.  The catechism, paragraph 2357 says:
“Basing itself on Sacred Scripture, which presents homosexual acts as acts of grave depravity, tradition has always declared that “homosexual acts are intrinsically disordered.” They are contrary to the natural law. They close the sexual act to the gift of life. They do not proceed from a genuine affective and sexual complementarity. Under no circumstances can they be approved.

"Not Just Saint Peter's Basilica, But the Entire Vatican Should be Exorcised"

Pachamama in St. Peter's Basilica
Theologian and pastor Don Alfredo Morselli speaks with the usual openness about idolatry in the Vatican and encourages an exorcism to purify the Vatican. Il Fatto Quotidiano interviewed him.
Q: Share the appeal of Catholics who complain idolatrous acts during the Amazon Synod. Do you consider them as such?
Don Morselli: I do not know what to call cultic acts of worshiping realities that are not God.
FQ: Some deny it, eg. Bishop Felipe Arizmendi Esquivel, emeritus bishop of San Cristobal de las Casas in Mexico.
Don Morselli: I know: He said that "they are not goddesses; there has been no idolatrous worship. They are symbols of Amazonian realities and experiences that have not only cultural but also religious motives, but not worship, because this is due only to God." It reminds me of a certain priest who was invited to dinner on Friday. When he was served meat so as not to embarrass his hosts, he blessed the meal with the words, "I baptise you cod." That's exactly what happened now. They baptized the idols "cod".
QQ: Why is it idolatry?
Don Morselli: St. Thomas Aquinas defines as worship a cult, in which one uses one's body to worship God, and since we are of two intellectual and sensitive natures, we must offer God a double worship: the spiritual, the spiritual, the spiritual the whole devotion of the soul; and the physical, which consists in the external humiliation of the body (S. Th. II-IIae q. 84 a., 2 co.). In the Vatican Gardens, they have their faces on the ground and the rump in the air: this was clearly an "external humiliation of the body" (and the humiliation of the spectators' eyes), that was an act of worship. In St. Peter's Basilica, she was carried around in procession with songs and prayers ...
Q: Can you not, like Bishop Esquivel, see it as a "symbol of experience" and not as an idol?
Don Morselli: To be an idolater one does not have to consider an idol that one worships to be an idol. It is enough to worship something that is not God. Jesus commanded the devil: "You will worship the Lord your God and serve him alone" (Mt 4:10, Lk 4: 8). The Pachamama, call her "goddess," call her "experience," call her "worth," but it is not "He alone." You do not throw yourself in front of it!
Q: Don Bux said that St. Peter's Basilica should be exorcised. What do you think about it?
Don Morselli: How could I contradict such an outstanding scholar? Moreover, the Scriptures say, "The gods of the nations are demons" (Ps 95: 5). And: "They sacrificed to spirits who are not deities, and gods whom they did not know before, newcomers who had come recently, and whose fathers were not afraid" (Deut 32:17). In any case, when we look at the various scandals, it does not just take an exorcism: it would be wise to bless the rainwater when it rains in Rome. This is faster and it will exorcise the whole Vatican and not only St. Peter's. I speak - so it is clear - of the human misery of some churchmen and not of the Holy Church. And I believe that Church history is always, as John Paul II said, "Church history is a history of holiness".
Q: Could not the Pachamama rituals be seen as an act of inculturation of the faith?
Don Morselli: Cardinal Biffi said culture comes from cultivating and cultivating is a thing that is good and fitting to do. It is not all civilization that produces a people's culture, but only when a people cultivates itself according to the truth. Only God "has done well" (Mk 7:37), but man, through original sin and consent to the devilish temptations, can produce sinful acts that can be reflected in the general practices of a people. And that is not civilization: idolatry and pantheism can not be considered as such.
Q: Do you expect to be accused once more of being an enemy of the Pope?
Don Morselli: I have inherited the spirit of Dubia from Cardinal Caffarra: you can ask the pope questions, but you do not set him down and do not fight him. Just as in politics, when one no longer had any arguments, those "fascists" who were not communists were called "enemies of the pope". But I am a friend of the Pope, of all Popes, Peter to Francis, unlike those who in the past had opposed John Paul II and Benedict XVI. had rebelled and now raise Francis on the shield. One can not cast out the Pope with the Pope and read the ordinary teaching in a spirit of break. However, the doctrine of faith is to be assumed in its unquestioning totality.

Don Nichola Bux: "Perform an Exorcism on Saint Peter's Basilica"


St. Peter's Basilica is to be exorcised to cleanse him of the demons. This is the advice of the well-known liturgist Don Nicola Bux for the Santa Marta after the PachamamagateThe counselor and personal friend of Benedict XVI. explains why this is necessary. Bruno Volpe from La Fede Quotidiana spoke with him.
Q: Monsignor Bux, in some pictures you can see the controversial Pachamama not only in the Roman church of Santa Maria in Traspontina, but also in Saint Peter. What do you think?
Don Nicola Bux: "The true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and in truth; for that is how the Father wants to be worshiped "(Jn 4:23).
"In the Spirit" means that worship is not limited to a sacred place, like the Temple of Jerusalem for the Jews. "In truth" means that it is not contaminated by idolatry or syncretism, something created by our hands. The church is not just a gathering place, but the dwelling place of God among the people. That is why it is called the "house of God." It is the "heaven that descends to earth," the presence of the Lord coming to save. The annual consecration day of a church commemorates this. That is the Catholic identity: if it is lost, everything is destined for collapse.
A sacrilege was committed, that is, a holy place was desecrated or unworthily treated. Sacrilege is a grave sin, says the Catechism of the Catholic Church, especially when it is directed against the Eucharist (CCC, 2120), which is present, preserved and worshiped in the churches. The sacred space helps man not to forget God: If the church, as it has been for several decades, becomes a multipurpose hall for concerts, conferences, and other human protagonism, where does man go to seek God?
The Communists have transformed the churches into ballrooms, gymnasiums, factories, etc., so that the human soul stops in its search for man and stops searching for God. If it is the clergy themselves who put an idol on the throne in caricature of the true God and the work of Satan, then, as the Scriptures teach, the Lord will surely leave the temple, and a cleansing will be necessary to bring Him back.
The temple is a symbol of our soul: if we defile it with demonic acts, the Holy Spirit gives it up. Let us not forget what the apostle writes in admirable words:
"He who spoils the temple of God, God will destroy him. For the temple of God is holy and you are" (1 Cor 3:17).
Cardinal Sarah, Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Order of the Sacraments, could perform an exorcism in St. Peter's Basilica, thus purifying the basilica.

The Incas Sacrificed Beautiful Children to Pachamama


 One of the ice mummies: a child brought to the gods as human sacrifices by the Incas.


(Lima) The work of archaeologists in Peru was reported at the end of September without any direct connection with the Amazon Synod.  It was a research activity that has particular relevance in view of the recent, so pervasive presence of Pachamama portrayals.

The Pachamama, which literally means "World Mother," rather than "Mother Earth," was a deity of South America that ruled over one of several worlds (Pacha means world, Pachakuna are the worlds), which also means cosmos and era.

The Incas, the high culture of South America encountered by the Spaniards as they explored the newly discovered continent, worshiped the Pachamama as a dragon goddess.  They sacrificed animals to their gods and other deities, as well as humans on special occasions.  The human sacrifices that could be proven so far were all children.

The archaeologists now know so much: These children, who were sacrificed to the pagan gods by the Incas and who were found by archaeologists on the tops of volcanoes, could come from different parts of the empire.  The archaeologists, especially Polish, know at least a dozen places in Peru where the Incas sacrificed some 500 years ago to their gods on the tops of mountains or volcanoes.  These human sacrifices were part of the Capacocha ritual.

Dagmara Socha, bio-archaeologist of the Centro de Estudios Andinos (CEAC) of the University of Warsaw in Cuzco, studied together with Rudi Chavez Perea, director of the Santuario Andinos Museum of the Catholic University of Santa Maria (Universidad Catolica de Santa Maria) in Arequipa (Peru), carried out the project on the remains of these children for several years.

This year, researchers focused on the children sacrifices placed on two volcanoes, the 6,288 meter high Ampato and the 5,665 meter high Picchu Picchu.  Several decades ago, the American anthropologist Johan Reinhard found the mummies of these children in a sitting position on stone platforms.  At present, these ice mummies are kept refrigerated at the Museo Sancturios Andinos.

According to Dr. Socha believed the Incas that at the time of sacrifice, children would become mediators between the gods and humanity.  The Incas, said the scientist, considered the children as pure and immaculate.  Therefore the human sacrifices had to be impeccable and virginal.  Accordingly, they were carefully selected.  Their status should have made it easier for the gods to make concrete decisions.

However, the scientists do not yet know the exact criteria in choosing the sacrificed children.  Socha told Szymon Zdziebłowski of Science in Poland, a website of the Polish Ministry of Science, that they needed "extraordinary qualities" such as beauty or a certain social background.  In one of the girls, whose remains were found on a platform on the Picchu Picchu, the researchers found a deliberate deformation of the head, which was extended specifically.  It is well known that this practice was not applied in the mountains, but in the plains and coasts of the Inca Empire.  This could mean that this girl came from a family living in a region far from the place of sacrifice.

 Using their teeth, the scientists were able to determine that the girl had either starved for a certain time or had suffered a severe trauma at the age of three.  At the time, the girl was allegedly brought to Cusco by her parents to be prepared for her offering for three years.  The trauma may have been caused by the separation from the parents, either first in Cuzco or already at home.  Then the child would have been brought to the capital by representatives of the theocratic Inca Empire.

Some of the mortal remains of six children examined by Dagmara Socha this year were mummified, if not all.  Other remains are poorly preserved and some have burn marks.  Socha explains that the Incas erected sacrificial platforms in places exposed to lightning.  There is ample evidence that these platforms have been repeatedly hit by lightning.  In the cosmology of the Incas, lightning represented
connections between the various god-worlds (Pachakuna) and the human world.

 While the altitude of the sacrificial sites meant that the sacrificed children were preserved as permafrost corpses, so-called ice mummies, some were indeed very well preserved, this is not always due to the lightning strikes for their clothes.

 According to the Incas, a person struck by lightning was being bestowed with great honor, as a god expressed interest in him.

The mummies studied by the Polish archaeologist are now in a similar state as before their discovery.  The mummies did not have to be moved.  Scientists used X-rays to minimize interference with the remains.  This made it possible to discover also many objects that were given to the children as grave goods: gold brooches for fastening the robes, wooden objects such as ritual cups, but also a gold tube and even petals.

The best-known example of a surviving human sacrifice of the Incas is the boy from El Plomo, who was found in 1954 near the summit of the 5424 meter high Cerro El Plomo in Chile.  At the time of his sacrifice, he was eight years old.  His skin was soft at the time of the discovery, as if he had just passed away.  The sacrifice was almost 500 years back.  The boy then was mummified by being transported to lower altitudes and becomes almost rock hard.

 All in all, 192 sacrificial ceremonial sites have been located on 192 mountains in the former Inca Empire.  So far, 27 surviving human sacrifices of the Capacocha ritual have been discovered on 14 mountains.  All were found over 5400 meters above sea level, which explains their conservation.

The Capacocha ritual was part of the religiously motivated state cult in the Inca Empire.  The boy of El Plomo was sacrificed after 1483, when central Chile was incorporated into the Inca Empire, and before 1533, when the Spaniards reached the area and put an end to the human sacrifices.

 
 Coronica (1615): human sacrifice on the mountains

 According to the scientists, the children were stunned with coca leaves and fermented drinks before being "buried" alive.  At least in the high-altitude sacrificial sites, they quickly froze, largely maintaining the squatting posture in which they had to sit.  In this position they were then worshiped - eerily scary - like living dead.

 Don Felipe Waman Puma de Ayala, an Indio, born around 1550 in the Spanish Viceroyalty of Peru, in what is now southern Peru, wrote a history of more than a thousand pages of Andean peoples, including 398 drawings (see illustration) ).  His mother tongue was Quechua, the language of the Inca Empire.  As a boy, he learned Spanish.  One of his drawings also shows how a child sacrificed on a mountain is worshiped.  His chronicle ends with his death in 1615. The description describes that in pre-Christian (pre-Columbian) time, human sacrifice was common.  The mentioned drawing expresses this, but also that at the beginning of the 17th century the sacrificed children were still worshiped by some of the Indians.

In detail, Don Felipe Waman portrays Puma de Ayala's sacrificial customs for the various deities, including Pachakamaq.  All were sacrificed in addition to other offerings and children in greater or lesser numbers.

 Its primer Nueva Corónica y Buen Gobierno was made fully accessible on the Internet a few years ago by the Copenhagen-based Congolese Bibliotek, in whose possession it is located.

Basically, it should be not that in past epochs ago, more or less, human sacrifices existed in all peoples and cultures in pre-Christian times.  That the true God does not want human sacrifices, He made clear already in Genesis, the First Book of the Bible, in the prevented sacrifice of Isaac by his father Abraham.  In the time of Abraham, and long after that, human sacrifices in the Middle East were obviously common practice.  In Divine Pedagogy, the great work of civilization, God led Abraham and his descendants away from human sacrifice for the time being because of the incomprehension of human beings, as an intermediate stage, as an animal sacrifice, although God Himself did not want that.  Where Christianity came, this cruelty was overcome, which illustrates its outstanding civilizational significance - and makes the contrast to the return of pagan amazons as the Pachamama in the context of the Amazon Synod all the more evident.
