The Dutch Bishops Then and the German Bishops Now Want to Destroy Priestly Celibacy



Pope Paul VI defended priestly celibacy with a remarkable speech on February 1, 1970.

(Rome) Exactly 50 years ago, Pope Paul VI. gave an important speechfor priestly celibacy. The reason for this was attacks by bishops who wanted to abolish celibacy. The parallels are obvious: Back then it was Dutch bishops, today they are German bishops. The geographic and linguistic direction from which the attack comes has remained the same. The difference is in the attitude of the ruling pope. Pope Francis' word during his visit to Colombia that he would never agree to an end to celibacy was - as experience shows - unfortunately worth nothing. This statement is hard and painful. Who would have thought of reporting it of a pope, but what is worth a word if the opposite of that is done
The absence of a formal act of consent is ultimately irrelevant when it is initiated, encouraged, encouraged and tolerated in practice, which is denied according to words, see the behavior in connection with the admission by Amoris laetitia of people in serious sin to communion, see the behavior towards the German Bishops' Conference in connection with the admission of Protestant spouses to Communion, see the behavior in connection with the Amazon synod .
In March 2017, in an interview with the weekly newspaper Die Zeit, Francis declared his willingness to speak about the admission of married priests. The same Francis, a few months later, on September 9, 2017, in Colombia, appeared to be vigorously defending the sacramental priesthood - and also celibacy - in front of a mass audience that was less liberal than the readership of the Die ZeitThat there are no vocations at the present time is a "fairy tale," thundered Francis:
"And don't come here to tell me: 'No, of course, there aren't that many calls for a special consecration because - that's clear - with this crisis we are experiencing ...' Do you know what that is? Are these fairy tales? Is that clear? Even in the midst of this crisis, God calls."

The Pope’s Revenge — Archbishop Gänswein Fired

Curia Archbishop Georg Gänswein is the most recent victim of Pope Francis.

(Rome) Francis has been described as vindictive and vengeful by several authors critical of the Pope. The retaliation for the latest book by Cardinal Robert Sarah and Benedict XVI follows: Pope Francis removes Archbishop Georg Gänswein from his office as Prefect of the Pontifical House.

There have been similar rumors several times in the past, but now it's fixed. However, official confirmation of the latest Bergoglian sentence is still pending. "Apart from the media advance notice, Santa Marta is once again afraid of it," said a Vatican employee. This should be less to be expected, because Pope Francis has so far not been deterred by critical voices in his intentions, least of all if they come from faithful circles.

The "Black Pope", Jesuit General Arturo Sosa Abascal, formulated the situation on September 16, 2019 after six and a half years of the current pontificate:

"Pope critics know that Francis will not change his mind."

[Katholisches] The words were geared towards the Amazon Synod still pending at that time and its main intention to abolish priestly celibacy. This is exactly what the book of Cardinal Robert Sarah, Prefect of the Roman Congregation for Divine Worship and Order of the Sacraments, and Benedict XVI. did. Together they made a plea for priestly celibacy and the sacrament. With their “hands off celibacy” they drew a red line, the first unspoken addressee of this is Pope Francis. The post-synodal letter on the Amazon Synod is still pending, but it shows what faithful Church groups have feared since 2014: Francis creates an exception to the rule that leads to the intended dam break. The German bishops have been waiting impatiently for a long time. A whole series of bishops in the German-speaking world, in Austria and Switzerland it is no different, can hardly wait to dispose of celibacy on the dung heap of history. He is said to be carried to the grave with unctuous ramblings. That is why the Bergoglian bishop generation is not embarrassed (see Married Priests? What bishops of the German-speaking area say about this).

The book by the cardinal and the past pope, which makes it clear that Pope Francis crosses the red line with a softening of celibacy and breaks the tradition of the Church, caused an outburst of anger in Santa Marta. The result was a scandalous media theater, staged by the papal inner-circle, with which confusion about the authorship of Benedict XVI. was generated. Since the secular mass media has a wider reach, well-meaning Catholics still believe Benedict XVI. had denied authorship and must somehow have been "concocted" by Cardinal Sarah. In reality, the fake news campaign aimed to counteract the effectiveness of the book and its defense of priestly celibacy. Contrary to the widespread claim that celibacy is "only" a law of the Church and therefore can be changed at any time, it is "of divine and apostolic origin" (Roberto de Mattei), see also Cardinal Sarah: "Celestial celibacy is not just a law the Church". Celibacy, however, stands in the way of the "sexual revolution" and its view of sexuality. This has been the mainstay of the fight against celibacy since the 1960s.

Archbishop Gänswein came, because of his double position as private secretary of Benedict XVI. and as Prefect of the Pontifical House of Francis immediately and directly into the line of firing. He now also feels the revenge of Santa Marta, which affects him, but of course also and not least,  this means Benedict XVI. It remains to be seen whether the retaliation will be packed into a dismantling of the Papal Prefecture. Whatever the packaging should look like, Msgr. Gänswein is removed from his office, the motivation and the papal intention are clear.

The convinced Bergoglian and pope biographer Austen Ivereigh already asked in an interview on August 10, 2019 to isolate Benedict XVI, whose authority has remained unbroken in large Church circles worldwide. Ivereigh's invitation to Santa Marta was:

"We have to get the circle around Benedict XVI. under control."

Note the personal pronoun "we", which, besides Ivereigh, means the papal inner-circle and Pope Francis himself. The first, closest and most important “circle” of Benedict XVI. is his private secretary and long-time, loyal employee of Archbishop Georg Gänswein.

Ivereigh was the spokesman for Cardinal Cormack Murphy-O’Connor, a member of the ecclesiastical “gang of four”, which he referred to as Team Bergoglio, and Ivereigh himself revealed their existence. The four-member cardinal group (Kasper, Lehmann, Murphy-O'Connor and Danneels), according to the British journalist and author, organized the election of Jorge Mario Bergoglio as Pope as the executive arm of the inner-Church secret circle of St. Gallen.

A struggle is raging in the Church “between two churches”, as the historian and President of the Lepanto Foundation Roberto de Mattei analyzed, one of which could not be the Church of Jesus Christ.

[Update, 12.05 p.m.] Curial Archbishop Georg Gänswein was "put on leave”  by Pope Francis. Informally, it is embellished that Gänswein should have more time to look after Benedict XVI. And take care of him. Vatican circles currently do not expect the post of Prefect of the Pontifical House to be filled. Access to the Pope, one of the prefect's main tasks, was handled by Francis from the start through other hands. Archbishop Gänswein's duties were largely reduced to the duty of attendance when receiving state visits and as an extra for papal activities.

Francis Pats Self on Back as He “Abolishes” Pontifical Secret

Edit: Why do Jesuits have a magazine called America? They hate America!

As if to say that leftists were right all along, he claims to do this. If he wants to do something about addressing sex abuse coverups, he should just resign since he’s engaged in that. Himself.

[America] In a decision of enormous importance, long called for by survivors of abuse and their advocates, Pope Francis has abolished the pontifical secret for sexual misconduct cases concerning clerics.
The “pontifical secret” is not related to the seal of the confessional, which remains absolute (and inviolable) in Catholic teaching and practice. Rather, the pontifical secret refers to confidentiality in the church’s judicial handling of clerical sex abuse and other grave crimes (as well as secrecy in other areas, such as some matters concerning the appointment of cardinals and bishops). The secrecy ensures that cases are dealt with in strict confidentiality. Vatican experts have said it was designed to protect the dignity of everyone involved, including the victim, the accused, their families and their communities.

"Pedro Arrupe Was a Prophet"



Pope Francis meets with the Jesuits of Thailand on November 22, 2019 in Sampran.

(Rome) In its current issue ( issue 4067 ), the Roman Jesuit magazine La Civiltà Cattolica published a copy of the encounter between Pope Francis and the Jesuits of Thailand, penned by his confidant P. Antonio Spadaro SJ. Comparable to the flying press conferences, these internal meetings give better insight into the thinking of Pope Francis than his official speeches. The summary publication after each meeting is made with papal approval. The head of the Church knows that his answers will be made publicly available.
A question from the Thai confreres referred to the Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS). It has had an office in Berlin since 1996, in Switzerland since 2010 and in Austria "it was able to work intensively again in 2015". Francis reaffirmed his call for boundless migration and declared refugees a "theological place".
Pope Francis: Working with refugees has become a real “theological place” for the Jesuits. I consider it a theological place. That was the will of P. Pedro Arrupe [1], who emphasized the importance of this mission in his last speech here in Thailand. Father Arrupe was a prophet to me: his "swan song" was the foundation of the Jesuit refugee service right here in Bangkok. Then he suffered a stroke on the return flight from Thailand to Rome. [2]
The refugee phenomenon has always existed, but today it is better known for its social differences, hunger, political tensions and, above all, war. For these reasons, migration movements are increasing. What is the answer the world gives? The policy of segregation. Refugees are waste. The Mediterranean was turned into a cemetery. The impressive cruelty of some detention centers in Libya touches my heart.
Here in Asia we all know the Rohingya problem [3]I have to admit that some of the stories I hear across borders in Europe shock me. Populism is gaining strength. In other areas, there are walls that even separate children from their parents. Herod comes to mind. However, there are no walls to stop drugs.
As I told you before, the migration phenomenon is compounded by war, hunger and a "defense philosophy" that makes us believe that it is possible to defend ourselves only through fear and strengthening the borders. On the other hand, there is exploitation. We know exactly how the church works - how many sisters are involved in this area! - works hard to save girls from prostitution and various forms of slavery. The Christian tradition has a rich evangelical experience in dealing with the refugee problem. 
We also remember the importance of welcoming the stranger that the Old Testament teaches us. But also many small folk welcome customs, such as providing an empty chair on a festive day in the event for when an unexpected guest arrives. If the Church is a field hospital, one serving the most injured, then we have to go to these hospitals the most.

I return to the “theological place”:  the will of Father Arrupe gave work with the refugees a great boost, and above all he asked for one thing: prayer, more prayer. The speech he made to the Jesuits who worked with the refugees here in Bangkok was not to neglect prayer. We have to remember it well: prayer. In other words, do not forget the other, the spiritual, in this physical periphery. Only in prayer will we find the strength and inspiration to go well and fruitfully into the “disorder” of social injustice.
Hardly any superior general is more controversial than Pedro Arrupe, whom a part of the Jesuit order venerates like a saint. On February 5, 2019, his beatification process was opened, which Pope Francis sympathizes with.
Another question that Pope Francis was asked by the Jesuits present was about pastoral action towards the remarried and divorced. Francis does not seem to like the question. In contrast to the refugee question, for which he took a lot of time and answered in detail, he stayed briefly on this point and redirected to the next question. The willingness to respond and the length of it indicates a priority setting.

What is remarkable about his short answer is a confusing juxtaposition, which the Pope formulated as a contradiction: on the one hand there is a "Church" answer, which is "not Christian", and his answer, which he identifies as "teaching".
Pope Francis: I could answer you in two ways: in a casuistic way, but which is not Christian, although it can also be ecclesiastical; or according to the Magisterium of the Church, as it is written in the eighth chapter of Amoris laetitia, that is, to make a way of accompaniment and differentiation in order to find solutions. And that has nothing to do with the situation ethics, but with the great moral tradition of the Church.
But I see that the time is up. But let's take another quick question…

[1] P. Pedro Arrupe (1907 to 1991) was from 1965 to 1981 28th Superior General of the Jesuits. He promoted an alliance of Christianity and socialism and also the young Fr. Jorge Mario Bergoglio.
[2] Pope John Paul II used Arrupe to disempower and to initiate the election of a new superior general.

[3] The Rohingya are a Muslim group that lives mainly in Bangladesh, but also in the border area of Myanmar, the former Burma. It is controversial whether it is an autochthonous group, or whether it has only recently infiltrated from the more populated Bangladesh. Since they organized themselves as an independent group and appeared politically, there has been a conflict with the Burmese government.

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.

Get Ready for Attempts to Wreckovate Notre Dame

Edit: as a set of very rich globalists and shadowy deep state individuals promise
To pay for the rebuilding of the Cathedral. France’s head of state and the Pope make overtures that they will build a kind of inclusive replacement. Clearly they want to erase France’s legacy.

As one Rolling Stone magazine  of degenerate music and entertainment puts it, ”The building was so overburdened with meaning that its burning feels like an act of liberation,

It’s frightening to think that the impending renovation (as opposed to restoration) will have in store for Catholics in Paris. Indeed, there are suggestions that a new renovation, which could be as controversial as the previous 19th century gothic renovation, could capture a new contemporary Church, like the hideous renovation of the Lourve.

One invading politician in Quebec even suggested the fire was divine intervention:

Québec Solidaire member Eve Torres suggested that the tragedy was “a result of a divine intervention related to the prohibition of religious symbols in France,” according to LaPresse.ca.
The Pope of surprises undoubtedly sees an opportunity to vent his will to destroy here.

Vatican Warmly Receives Aberrosexual Lobby

(Rome) Today, for the first time, homosexual activists were officially received in the Vatican, but unlike the visitors initially announced and expected. Nevertheless, it was a historic event in the history of the Church.

Last week, French sociologist and gay activist Frederic Martel announced that Pope Francis would welcome an international group of homosexual activists. He referred to an Argentine compatriot and personal friend of the Pope, the former Supreme Court Judge and homosexual left-intellectual Raul Eugenio Zaffaroni.

Martel's announcement caused a great deal of commotion after the Vatican had just left the Christian World Family Congress in Verona a week ago. While the supreme ecclesiastical body has distanced itself from Christian associations committed to marriage and the family, does the Pope receive homosexual activists? The optics hung doubly wrong.

Martel, citing Zaffaroni, had also announced a "historical speech" by Pope Francis in favor of homosexuality. Yesterday, he dialed back. The speech was "canceled". Thus Pope Francis had missed "a historic opportunity". The apology, however, added to the sociology, as the Pope is under constant observation of his critics in the Church.

Vatican spokesman Gisotti also denied yesterday that Francis will be giving a "historical speech" today. He did not deny the audience. The decisions seem to have fallen only at the last moment. The trick was to send a signal of "openness" to the gay lobby, but not to give the inner-church resistance to the papal course too much impetus.

The result showed today. It was not Pope Francis who received the delegation of homosexuals, but Cardinal Secretary of State Parolin. It was also the cardinal who last week announced the distancing of the Holy See from the World Family Congress.

Behind the scenes, it seems that the last one has been worked out, because it seems hardly believable - however extravagant Zaffaroni may be - that the former Supreme Court Judge invented the audience with the Pope and his "historical speech" and even signed his own signature.

By noon this morning [5 -April], the invited homo-activists knew about the exact program. Homosexual organization Egale Canada tweeted:

"Today in the Vatican, we are witness to a historic meeting with the Secretary of State of the Holy See, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, to discuss the situation of discrimination and violence against LGBTI [He forgot “P”] people in the world." 


“We expect a historic meeting in the Vatican"

Vatican spokesman Alessandro Gisotti then gave, unlike after numerous private audiences, an official statement.

"Cardinal Pietro Parolin received today in the Vatican a group of 50 persons, who work in different ways against the criminalization of homosexuality."

The Cardinal Secretary of State was on this occasion, Zaffaroni and Martel had already announced, "a study on the criminalization of homosexual relations in the Caribbean" passed.

"Cardinal Parolin gave a short greeting to those present, reaffirming the position of the Catholic Church in defending the dignity of every human being and against any form of violence.
“After listening to the comments of some of the participants in the meeting, Cardinal Parolin assured that he would inform the Holy Father about the content of the study. "

The "Globo Homo” was very pleased with the audience, even if it was not given by the Pope himself. The International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association (ILGA) tweeted:

"ILGA World attended the historic meeting and called for a deeper dialogue."


ILGA World in the Vatican


ILGA World, the Globo Homo umbrella organization, also published a detailed statement.

In fact, the audience was "historic" even without Pope Francis. For the first time, the Gay Lobby was officially able to incorporate its more ventral positions into the Vatican, and was recognized by the highest government representative of the Pope, the Secretary of State, as a dialogue partner at state, not pastoral level. The attendees were not received as persons with their individual destinies, but - for the first time in history - as representatives of the organized gay lobby.

Egale Canada wrote on Twitter:

"We are proud to participate in this moment in history. This is the first time that #LGBTI activists have met #Vatican. At a meeting with Cardinal Parolin, we called on Pope Francis (@Pontifex) to make a statement condemning the criminal laws that persecute LGBTI people.”

How much balancing act does the Church engage in behind the closed doors for the Christian World Family Congress and the open doors to the organized gay lobby?

Francis Goes on Retreat With Pet Predator Bishop

"The City With Burning Desires"

Edit: this reminded us of Confessions of St. Augustine:

To Carthage I came. There I put my ear to the cauldron and heard from within and all around a song of unholy loves.1

(Rome) On the evening of the First Sunday of Lent, the fasting exercises of the Pope and the Roman Curia began. Through Twitter, Francis asked for the prayer "for me and my co-workers". Bishop Gustavo Oscar Zanchetta is among "my co-workers" who attend the retreat.

At 6 pm on Sunday evening, this year's fasting exercises for the curia started. They take place again in the retreat house "Divin Maestro" in Ariccia. They are being held by the Olivetan Abbot Bernardo Francesco Gianni of the Abbey of San Miniato al Monte in Florence. The Olivetans are a reform branch of the Benedictine Order, which originated exactly 700 years ago, 1319, as a hermit movement. The monks are also known as "White Benedictines" because of their religious habits. In 1960, the Olivetans joined as a Congregation of the Benedictine Confederation. The congregation has 26 independent monastic monasteries worldwide.

The theme of the retreat, which lasts until March 15, is: "The City of Burning Desires. For paschal vistas and gestures in the life of the world." The first part refers to the Florentine poet Mario Luzi (1914-2005), who was spiritually close to the Renouveau Catholique (Catholic Renewal). On the occasion of his 90th birthday, the then Italian President Carlo Azeglio Ciampi appointed him senator for life. Luzi died five months later, without being able to speak in Parliament. The theme was chosen by Abbot Bernardo Francesco Gianni, who published on the lyricist on the occasion of Luzi's death.

In his last tweet, before the beginning of the retreat, Pope Francis wrote:

"I ask all of you to remember in prayer to me and my collaborators of the Roman Curia, who begin this evening the week of spiritual retreats."

Among "my coworkers" Pope Francis also included the Argentine Curia Bishop Gustavo Oscar Zanchetta, who in 2017 left his diocese Oran in a without a leader and vanished for half a year. With his disappearance, he submitted the resignation request, which the pope immediately accepted. There remained an irritated diocese, which did not know how it happened. Later, Zanchetta suddenly reappeared in the Vatican and received a high-ranking position from Francis in the Apostolic Property Administration APSA, which was specially created for him. At that time it was already known that he had left the finance and administration of two dioceses in chaos, first as vicar general of his home diocese, then as bishop of his diocese of Oran. An employment in the Vatican's property management was therefore particularly surprising.

Shortly before Christmas 2018 it became known that the financial disorganization of his diocese was not really the reason for the nightly departure as bishop, but allegations of an aberrosexual double life and the sexual harassment of his seminarians.

On January 4, the Vatican press office reported that an Argentine bishop had been charged with investigating the case. Bishop Zanchetta will "leave the job" during the investigation. Should the suspicions be confirmed, the case will be forwarded to the Special Commission for the Bishops."

The interim Vatican spokesman, Gisotti justified the Vatican's approach so that at the time of Zanchetta's resignation as the diocesan Bishop of Oran, only allegations were known of an authoritarian style of leadership, but still no allegations of sexual misconduct.

Shortly thereafter, a veritable media bomb exploded: The Argentine daily El Tribuno published a 2015 submission that showed that the Vatican had been informed of sexual misconduct even then, two years before Zanchetta's escape from his diocese. The complaint had been made by the two Vicars General, the Rector of the seminary and other prelates of the diocese. It was also about authoritarianism in the Bishop's dealings with his priests, but also about the bishop's "obscene selfies" found on his smartphone and about the bishop's sexual harassment of seminarians.

In 2016, the rector of the seminary turned "very worried" to the Apostolic Nunciature in Argentina over the behavior of Bishop Zanchettas towards the seminarians in the first year of studies, who let them attend classes in the episcopal residence. The behavior of the bishop demanded "urgent measures" to protect the seminarians, said the rector to the Nuncio.

Since then, the credibility of the Holy See has been severely shaken in the matter. Francis, however, sticks to his agenda as if nothing had happened. So far also Bishop Zanchetta. In any case, the protection of seminarians from lustful bishops does not seem to be a primary goal of this pontificate. Francis protected Cardinal McCarrick till the last possible moment, as he did with Auxiliary Bishop Pineda of Tegucigalpa. It is still the case for Bishop Zanchetta. All have taken advantage of their own seminarians. In all cases, Francis did not act until the media exposed the sexual activities too loudly.

The British Catholic Herald headlined yesterday:

"The Bishop who is being investigated for sexual misconduct is with Pope Francis at spiritual retreats".

To requests of the Catholic Herald regarding the current state in the case of Zanchetta, the Vatican press service has not responded.

Francis Has Handed the Helm of the Church to Gay Lobby




Pope Francis with sodomite group of the Archdiocese of Westminster.

(Rome) The LGBT + Catholics Westminster Pastoral Council met with Pope Francis. "An encounter that weighs like an encyclical," said Riccardo Cascioli, editor-in-chief of Nuova Bussola Quotidiana (NBQ). The problem is not the reception of people with homosexual inclinations, who are anchored in the bosom of the Church to know and struggle for their sinfulness. The problem is the reception for organized homosexual groups whose goal is to change the teaching of the Church and to entertain their deviancy.

The Pope of gestures

Pope Francis knows that gestures and above all media propagated images of these gestures have more effect than a thousand words. His pontificate is founded in no small portion on this conception. Pope Francis is the "Pope of gestures".

"That's why there's little to interpret," says Cascioli, when one sees the warm welcome Francis granted to Westminster's gay community. Francis can also be very different, as the reception for US President Donald Trump showed.

The homo community of Westminister, which is sponsored by Cardinal Vincent Nichols, was already the subject of a review by the Congregation of the Faith, as Cardinal Gerhard Müller had the say there. The instructions given by him seem to have received little attention.

It was the homosexuals themselves who joyfully announced the papal attention on Monday.

Desired meeting

The meeting took place on March 6 and formed the conclusion of the pilgrimage to Rome, which was led by the Jesuit, Fr. David Stewart.

There has been no shortage of preferred treatments in Rome. At the general audience on St. Peter's Square, the Homo group received "privileged seats". At the end of the general audience they were invited to an "encounter with Pope Francis".




Good-humored Pope with "LGBT + Catholics Westminster"

These are not "random photos" that have been distributed on the Internet, but a planned meeting that was desired by the Holy See. This is confirmed by the attached message from Cardinal Nichols. If it was not the Pope himself, the gathering was favored, at least by his entourage. Martin Pendergast, the well-known homosexual activist, was able to introduce the group to a beaming Pope Francis.

An obvious "sign of acceptance and humanity" as Pope Francis asks of the Church, Cascioli says with an ironic undertone.

Of course, the method is "exhausting," according to the NBQ editor-in-chief, "to pretend that nothing will change so that everything changes." It is exhausting for contemporaries to see through the observers, those affected, the bishops, the faithful, and to understand what is being played at. The method consists in hollowing out the doctrine of faith through practice until it is empty, without ever admitting it, ever speaking about it, and without giving any justification for it. So one day comes the moment when it is determined that everything has changed and no one knows or wants to know how it could have happened.

A sin yesterday, today a virtue?

Until yesterday, practiced homosexuality was an unnatural sin, even an outrageous sin calling for the vengeance of God. This is how St. Pius X taught it, and so it is still today in the Catechism of the Catholic Church (KKK, 1867). This is not the invention of a pope. It is the Holy Scripture that teaches it.

Today, however, homosexuality seems to be a virtue.

On what basis did this change occur? What has changed? Maybe nature?

There are no answers to that, at least not from the Vatican. There it was simply decided, without saying it, without admitting it and without explaining that it is simply different now. Just because. Anyone who criticizes this, who - as Francis speaks - is a "rigorist", a "teacher of the law", a stickler for the law, a stubborn dogmatist, a "hard-hearted" who throw stones.

The Pope's requests to speak frankly and freely, to cultivate the synodality, on closer inspection, quickly turn out to be cheap words that the facts can not match.

The Jesuitization of the Church

The essential feature of papal action "is the ambiguity,” says Cascioli.

"Let your yes be yes, your no a no; everything else comes from evil” (Mt 5:37).

This message from the Lord who delivers the Gospel seems to be nothing more than an "impossible" relic of the past - according to Pope Francis. Jesuit general Arturo Sosa will argue that there were no tape recorders at that time, which is why these words may have been handed down incorrectly. Who knows exactly.

Some critics speak of a Jesuitization of the Church, and do not mean that positively.

From Rome it echoes differently, and many babble about it: "The Pope takes all. We are all sinners.” Does he help people with that, or is it simply bowing and scraping as the price of relativism? There is no doubt that Francis sets his gestures out of this spirit of acceptance, according to Cascioli.

"But the gesture also has an objective message, and that goes way beyond. Objectively, this gesture legitimizes sin.”

The gay lobby has taken command in the Church 

The Pope did not meet individuals on 6 March, to whom he personally turned. He met with an organized group that considers and promotes their homosexuality for something good and great. He met with a structured lobby that denies human nature and aims to change Church doctrine and Scripture. The latter is even clearer as far as God's plans are concerned, as larger parts of the Church doctrine since the Second Vatican Council. The clear statements of Scripture begin with the Creation account (Gen 1:27), where it is plain that God created man "as a man and a woman".

At least he could  justify the paradigm shift practiced. Was God wrong? Has the Church taught wrong things for about two thousand years?

"There is no escape from such questions. It can not be that an act is a sin in one day and the most natural thing the day after. This is not a deepening of the doctrine but its denial," says Cascioli.

The meeting with the Homo group wanted by the Pope makes it even easier to understand later why the anti-abuse summit in February avoided the issue of homosexuality, although several bishops raised the problem. For Cascioli, one thing is clear:

"If it's still not clear, the gay lobby has taken command in the Church."

For those who are too innocent in thought, and for those who do not want to admit it, there are two more comments to better understand what is happening.


Note 1

The English aberrosexual group celebrated the morning praise "in memory of the victims of homophobia and transphobia" during their stay in Rome in the Church of San Bartolomeo all'Isola. The church is run by the community of Sant'Egidio. In it, however, the Church does not remember this "sacrifice" but "the martyr of our day". If you grasp this point, you have understood something.

"I think that no one can escape the fact that there is an attempt to put the alleged victims of even more alleged discrimination against the Christian martyrs of the twentieth century, who were killed for their love for Jesus Christ, on a par."

Here an ideologically motivated operation is taking place to profane the place that Pope John Paul II intended to commemorate millions of Catholics killed by the totalitarians of the previous century.

Note 2

The meeting of the Pope with the Homo group and their press release revealed that the Archdiocese of Westminister even has a "Pastoral Council of LGBT + Catholics". Probably, according to Cascioli, this is not even an isolated case.

"That means that in different dioceses the language of the Church is no longer spoken, but that of the world. The gender ideology has fully invaded pastoral care. "

Every second and fourth Sunday in London, there is a Mass for the LGBT + at Farm Street Church, dedicated to the Immaculate Conception. The church was chosen by Cardinal Nichols. The Mass is celebrated by Jesuits.

At the World Family Meeting in August 2018, for the first time, program items sponsored by aberrosexuals were honored. The "wish" came expressly from Rome. In the Youth Synod in October 2018, there was found in the preparation document, the aberrosexual self-description  LGBT. It was missing in the final document because the pressure on the synod was so great.

"As you can see, the reality is much greater. There are already bishops and cardinals who, out of conviction or convenience, have adapted to the new dictatorship and want to impose it on the whole Church. "
[+Nichols has always been an enabler of sodomy and its glorification.]

Was McCarrick a Communist Agent?





(Rome) While the Pope Francis' summit on sexual abuse of minors is taking place in the Vatican, new revelations about the ex-homosexual cardinal and ex-priest Theodore McCarrick have become known.

According to Vatican planning, the Abuse Summit wants to avoid the main motive of sexual abuse: homosexuality [Let's not try to be neutral about this scourge, call it aberrosexuality.] At least 80 percent of all abuse victims of clerics are male adolescents 11 and up.

Now, new revelations surrounding homosexual McCarrick, whose case set the abuse summit  rolling, became known. Besidss this, there is a connection between homosexuality and the summit. This is especially true because of the great influence that McCarrick exercised by his offices, his rank, the Papal Foundation initiated by him and not least by the Sodo-Cliques.

Church Militant's American Michael Voris reported "explosive" news late yesterday evening:

"The Communists have been incredibly successful in infiltrating the church. McCarrick was one of her men. "
Voris is convinced that the Abuse Summit is a major diversionary tactic of homosexual clerics in the Church. For decades, the same cliques have covered McCarrick, who - following Frédéric Martel's statement in his new book "Sodoma" - was one of the heads of the homosexual network.

Michael Voris




Church Militant relies on information from former communists who "played a key role" after the Second World War in building a secret network of communist training and education centers in Europe. Their information "implies" a direct involvement by McCarrick, Voris said.

According to him McCarrick was in his early years, "secretly trained in Europe by Soviet Communists" with the aim to implant him as a communist "in the heart of the Church.”

When Stalin took control of the Soviet Union in the 1920s, it was one of his plans, so much is certain, to weaken the influence of the Catholic Church, if not entirely eliminating it. This was "part of the communist world domination plans that Our Lady warned in Fatima in 1917.”

A central point of the plan, according to Voris, was the "infiltration of seminaries with young men who were to work to undermine the Church's moral code".

This strategy was confirmed by Bella Dodd (1904-1969), a senior member of the US Communist Party (CPUSA). She herself, according to her own information, placed 1,100 men in US seminars. The teacher Dodd was a leading communist activist and trade unionist in the 1930s and 1940s. She began to withdraw herself internally  from communism in the course of a purge of exclusion from the party in 1949. Under the leadership of Fulton Sheen, then Auxiliary Bishop of New York, she returned to the Catholic Church and became an opponent of dialectical materialism.

Dodd revealed that according to Stalin's order, "immoral men", especially homosexuals, were to be introduced to the Church.

"Dodd's testimony is important because it not only reveals the infiltration plan, but also the connection between communism and homosexuality in this plan," which was not limited to the US.

When the Iron Curtain fell in 1989 and the Soviet empire collapsed in 1991, information from the KGB became known that the Polish seminaries had been infiltrated with hundreds of Communist agents. "The reality that the Church was besieged from within for decades shook Polish Catholics to the core," Voris said. At the same time, Catholics in Lithuania had to realize that their "hierarchy was interspersed with Soviet agents."

"Liberation theology had been carried to Latin America by KGB agents to undermine the Catholic Church through the Jesuit Order."

To train young men who would not be noticed in their home countries, various training centers were set up. One, according to Church Militant, existed in St. Gallen, Switzerland, where McCarrick was around 1950. He came from a poor family. The father had died young and the mother struggled with simple work to make ends meet.





Bella Dodd

In 2001, McCarrick told the New York Times about his time in Europe right after graduating from college. He had "no plans for his life" back then. "A friend" invited him to Switzerland, where he stayed for a whole year, without saying where he had the money for such a trip and the long stay. Something that at that time only wealthy could afford.

That McCarrick was in St. Gallen is known by James Grein, one of his sexual abuse victims. Church Militant points out that one of the Communist training centers in the West was located in Sankt Gallen, where recruited young men were trained, among other things, to be introduced to the Church.

McCarrick told the New York Times he found his priestly calling during his time in Europe. Voris:

"McCarrick would have been the ideal candidate for Soviet recruitment: a fatherless young man with homosexual inclinations and no particular ambition in life. It was a perfect match for the pattern, especially the homosexual dynamic, which made it easy to control it by blackmail. "

The fact is that McCarrick entered the seminary of the Archdiocese of New York on his return to the United States and was consecrated there in 1958.

"If McCarrick was actually recruited as a Soviet agent to undermine the Church, he fulfilled his clients' wishes perfectly."

"He rose quickly and spread moral, doctrinal and spiritual confusion on every level, inflicting injuries - not just his victims among the seminarians and other young men."

Indeed, if McCarrick had been a communist agent steeped in Marxist thought and a socialist worldview at an early age, that would explain a great deal how his way in the Church in the United States was struck by his rise to power..

The so-called "Social Justice" wing in the Church of the United States became a leader under McCarrick who is one of its central figures. Under US President Bill Clinton, he was even able to extend his influence to the government by sitting for three years in the Foreign Affairs Committee on Religious Freedom from 1996 onwards. From 1999 to 2001 he was also a member of the US Commission for International Freedom. The membership in both committees enabled him numerous foreign trips. During a ceremony, Clinton joked that these constant trips abroad were more for diplomats than archbishops.

While Benedict XVI. Restricts McCarrick's room for maneuver and imposed sanctions on him for the strong suspicion of sexual misconduct, Pope Francis rehabilitated him and made him his special envoy to the Communist People's Republic of China. As such, McCarrick was involved in preparing the secret agreement between the Holy See and Beijing, signed in September 2018, and caused critic s to call him a "seller of the Chinese Church."

The proof of Michael Voris is thin, which he knows himself. But he is right in pointing out that the evidence is too numerous to dismiss the revelations. McCarrick had "routinely bribed" and paid Roman curial officials with "benefits and probably cover-ups".

"He has been instrumental in propagating social justice that has dominated the life of the Church in the United States for decades - a movement that hides behind a language of charity, but regularly reveals its left-wing policies and its links with socialist organizations of which many are offshoots of Saul Alinsky. "

Voris also links Saint Gallen with the secret circle of high and highest progressive Church representatives founded by Cardinal Martini in the 1990s, which played a central role in the election of Pope Francis. The association of Church progressive to political left is obvious. The decidedly political action of Pope Francis confirms this. In fact, his election not only brought with it the immediate lifting of the sanctions imposed on him, but also granted him unprecedented influence in the Vatican.

Voris concludes from his information and agrees that McCarrick's case is not only closer to sexual abuse, but much broader. His entire influence on the Church in the United States and on the Universal Church should be scrutinized - and his year in Switzerland.

Catholic Priests in China Feel Betrayed by the Vatican -- Facial Recognition Tracks Chinese People on New Year's

(Beijing) The authorities of the People's Republic of China expect a record number of lunar new year human movements to be celebrated in China. Mass exodus is systematically monitored by the regime for the first time using facial recognition systems.The Catholic priests of the communist empire are also monitored.
About 1.5 billion Chinese will participate in the largest mass movement in the world. Whether by train, plane, car or even on foot, most Chinese are still on the move for the next 35 days to celebrate the Chinese New Year, which is all about the pig. This superlative human movement started on March 21st and will last until March 1st. The Chinese traditionally return to their family homes to celebrate New Year's celebrations with relatives and friends to celebrate the New Year. There are no lack of bottlenecks in the means of transport and on the transport routes to transport such crowds.
The official New Year's date in China is February 5, 2019. Authorities are officially expecting 2.99 billion people. Thousands of additional trains and aircraft are used to deal with this. According to the authorities estimate, air traffic alone is expected to increase by 12 percent over the previous year.
New high-speed lines are being put into operation for the New Year, including the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong line.
For the first time, the new social credit system will also be used. Human movements are monitored and controlled with the most systematic facial recognition possible. The system uses a gigantic database and new artificial intelligence technologies.

Underground priests feel "betrayed" by the Vatican

Catholic priests are also being monitored in the People's Republic of China. To officially serve as a priest, you must join the regime approved Patriotic Association. AsiaNews has released the news of such an "official" priest. He reports that underground priests with whom he is associated, feel betrayed by the Vatican, especially since the agreement between Beijing and the Holy See. Despite the agreement, the Patriotic Association continues to work for a Chinese national church independent of the Holy See and dependent on the communist regime.

Only the Patriotic Association is recognized by the state

The priest therefore calls on the Vatican to discuss the role of the Patriotic Association in future talks with Beijing.
The reason for this message is an alarming development for the priest. Several priests of the faithful underground church with whom he is friends are about to give up their priesthood. They feel betrayed by the Vatican. Pope Francis declared after the signing of the Episcopal Agreement "The last word is mine," but the role of the Patriotic Association has not been clarified. The Patriotic Association "is a controlling body of the Chinese Communist Party and wants to build a self-sufficient church independent of the Holy See."
Pope Benedict XVI, in his 2007 Letter to Chinese Catholics, declared the Patriotic Association "incompatible with Catholic doctrine," said the priest. Pope Francis repeatedly emphasized that the letter of his predecessor is "still valid".
But the reality gives a different impression, said the priest. Francis draws on bishops and priests of the Patriotic Association, as a kind of "lesser evil." Membership in the Patriotic Association is still a prerequisite for being recognized by the state as a priest. Benedict XVI. stated, however, that membership of organizations and bodies that deny the indispensable principles of the faith and the ecclesial community is not permitted.
The Patriotic Association is doing just that, as the 60th anniversary of its founding has once again proved.
The priest tells of various underground priests who are so disappointed by recent developments that they feel abandoned and betrayed by the Vatican. Several people know that they have returned to their hometowns or want to return. They are "victims of the Sino-Vatican Agreement," said the priest.
"I'm afraid there are many priests throughout China who are going through this now: they were faithful and defended the Catholic faith, but suddenly they were betrayed by Rome. They can not rape their consciences and even less can they act against their faith. "
The priest's concern is that his confreres may lose their "missionary vocation". If the secular power knows their priesthood and they do not even get hold of the Church, "are they really like the crucified Christ, and can only cry with all their might, 'Father, why have you forsaken us?'"
