Bergoglian Boomer Bishop Raps: "If There is a God or Not, Boh!"

(Rome) In the Diocese of Cassano all'Jonio in Calabria peculiar bishops seem to have a certain "tradition."  In 2014, Pope Francis appointed Msgr. Nunczio Galantino as the Secretary General of the Italian Bishops' Conference.
Galantino served as "man of the Pope" until 2018 in his office and provided for the "right" course in the Episcopal Conference. In May 2017, Pope Francis was also able to re-appoint the President. This is when Galantino's star began to fade, because two "bosses" frustrate each other. Last summer, Francis promoted him to the Roman Curia and appointed him Prefect of the Apostolic Patrimony Administration (APSA). An office that could soon even be a cardinal's office.
Galantino's tenure as the head of the Bishops' Conference was enough to voice disparaging remarks about devout Catholics praying in front of abortion clinics to rescue unborn children and end abortion. And enough time to bargain behind closed doors with the then Italian left-wing government for a "compromise" on "gay marriage," while the bishops' conference and the Vatican failed millions of Italians opposed to "gay marriage" and the introduction the gender ideology at the schools went to the streets. Also enough time to hold dubious catecheses for adolescents, such as the falsification of the Bible, according to which God "saved" the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah at the request of Abraham.
In spring 2015, Pope Francis appointed a successor to Galantino's orphaned diocese Cassano all'Jonio. In May of that year, Msgr. Francesco Savino was ordained as the new diocesan bishop and took over the leadership of the southern Italian diocese.
Bishop Savino has so far received no attention outside his diocese: this has changed now with his message to the young people of his diocese. In it he quoted various modern musicians, including the Italian hip-hop singer Jovanotti alias Lorenzo Cherubini.
Messa in Latino wrote: "This is neither prohibited nor did the bishop cite any heresies. He simply quoted 'only' banalities like these:
"Whether there is a god, maybe yes, maybe no, boh. But I hear the stories, ready to believe a little bit. That we are children of somebody. The rest is all to do first. I have no roots, but feet to go'."

Cardinal Present at “Drug Fueled” Orgy at CDF




(Rome) The pontificate of Pope Francis is currently being pursued from one scandal to the next. And all of them involve personal friends, confidants, prelates who are close to him, up to the princes of the Church.


According to the Canadian press service LifeSiteNews, Cardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio, a close associate of Pope Francis, was present at a gay drug org, which was broken up by the Vatican police.




The apartment of Monsignor Capozzi

The case occurred in the summer of 2017. It became known then that the personal secretary of Cardinal Coccopalmerio, the priest Luigi Capozzi (49) was caught in a homosexual party with drug use. The Vatican gendarmerie was
searching for clues in an apartment in the Palazzo del Sant'Uffizio and burst in the middle of an aberrosexual drug orgy. The apartment was assigned to the secretary of the cardinal, which is why he was identified as the organizer of the orgy.

He supposedly had the apartment in the palace, which also houses the Congregation of the Doctrine of the Faith, supposedly located because the palace is accessible to both the Vatican and Italy. It was, as it was then called, the ideal place to infiltrate unchecked drugs and hustlers.

Already at that time the question arose how a secretary, albeit of a cardinal, could come to possess such a large apartment in such a palace, which far exceeded his rank. According to the dossier of nuncio Carlo Maria Viganò, the gay lobby in the Vatican might have helped.

According to LifeSiteNews, not only his secretary Capozzi, but Cardinal Coccopalmerio was personally present at the aberrosexual drug orgy. Archbishop Viganò identifies him in his dossier as a member of the "gay lobby" in the Vatican.

The Cardinal's presence had been successfully hushed up so far. After all, Coccopalmerio was still the head of the Dicastery of the Roman Curia, which corresponds to the rank of minister. The Cardinal from Milan was President of the Pontifical Council for Legislative Texts until last April. As a lawyer, he knew that aberrosexual behavior is punishable by Church law. Apparently he felt invincible in his rank and in the Vatican. Not unjustifiably, one follows the revelation by LifeSiteNews.

The protective hand




Cardinal Coccopalmerio, the confidante of Pope Francis

The press agency relies on a source that wants to remain anonymous for security reasons. The Vatican gendarmerie had caught the cardinal in the act of entering the apartment in a flash, but instructed him to leave the apartment immediately before they began making arrests. There was a protective hand over the Cardinal. Capozzi was arrested. The Vatican Police may be required to protect Cardinals from scandal. But they certainly report in detail.

Pope Francis, according to LifeSiteNews, was undoubtedly informed about the police action and the presence of Coccopalmerio.

Was he staying silent like with McCarrick?

Archbishop Viganò revealed in his dossier that he had informed Pope Francis in June 2013 in detail about the degenerate life of Cardinal Theodore McCarrick. Francis did nothing but made McCarrick his confidant for the United States. He also became acquainted with the rapprochement between the Holy See and the People's Republic of China. On Sunday, Cardinal Marc Ouellet factually confirmed Viganò's allegations by writing in an open letter that the Pope had received many nuncios in June 2013, so he could not remember all the names and information.

I beg your pardon?

The Nuncio reported on a "perverse and diabolical" double life of a cardinal in the US, the world power number one, and the pope didn’t do anything?

According to LifeSiteNews, the source and other informants left no doubt that Cardinal Coccopalmerio was a "practicing homosexual". In the recent past, Coccopalmerio has been "positive" about homosexual couples.

Pope Provides for Predator Presence at Youth Synod

Edit: Considering that most cases involving predators involve degenerate clergy preying on minors of the same sex, is it wise to continue promoting the outdated but highly corrosive revolutionary sexual ideologies of the late 60s and the individuals, like Rosica, who are its fanatical proponents? 

If I were a Canadian parent, I wouldn’t want Rosica anywhere near my children, or anyone else’s children.

I’d go a step further and say that this initiative and the Vatican’s current endorsement of it is a sign of the absolute irreformability of Francis and his clique of aberrosexualist collaborators.

Two staff members of Thomas Rosica’s 'Salt + Light Media' are auditors of the Synod of Bishops who can attend meetings and speak out. Rosica is considered a proponent of liberalization of the Church teaching on homosexuality.

Vatican (kath.net/LSN/ju) Four employees of P. Thomas Rosica's "Salt + Light Media" are participating in the current synod. Two of them belong to the 50-member group of auditors. Canada's Catholic youth is thus represented exclusively by "Salt + Light Media" employees.


The auditors attend the synod meetings and are allowed to speak there. However, they have no voting rights. 34 of the 50 synod auditors are younger than thirty.

The two other employees of "Salt + Light Media" are collaborators of the General Secretariat of the Synod of Bishops.

Rosica, himself a member of the Vatican Press Office, considered this circumstance to be "a strong sign of confirmation by the Pope" and recognition of the Church's mission of "Salt + Light".

The media project supports Pope Francis and will soon broadcast the documentary "The Francis Impact". It is a continuation of "The Francis Effect", which represents the pontificate as extremely positive. The announcement text for "The Francis Impact" states that Pope Francis is "for many people in the world the most authentic and credible moral authority". [lol]

Father Rosica has recently caused a stir by saying that Pope Francis will break with Catholic traditions whenever he wishes, "because he is free from disordered attachments." kath.net has reported this: with Pope Francis a 'new phase' for the Church begins

Shortly before it had become known that Rosica wanted to say a “Mass” for "LGBT Catholics". After this project became known, Rosica canceled his participation. In 2015 he had argued that the Catechism of the Catholic Church should find another language on homosexuality. kath.net has reported here: Canadian media priest and Vatican advisor will preside  LGBT Mass

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?

Bishop Ruben Lugones with Pope FrancisBishop Ruben Lugones with Pope Francis




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.

The aforementioned books can be purchased through our book partner in German. (Not available in English yet.)

Vatican Hopes to Wait Out the Viganò Dossier

Parolin: There is "unrest" in the Vatican




The Vatican is full of sadness and unrest. The Viganò dossier shakes the current pontificate and the next storms are already gathering together.

(Rome) In the Vatican, the dossier of the former Apostolic Nuncio Carlo Maria Viganò is obviously irritating. It is recognizable by contradictory reactions. Obviously, there is no real strategy on how to deal with it. The minimalist counter-strategy is: ignore and sit out. A strategy that is not lacking in explosiveness, because in the past, sexual abuse allegations have often been addressed in the same way.



Pope not distressed, Avvenire
 
First, the Italian news agency ANSA reported on Monday night that Pope Francis was "saddened" by the dossier, but not thinking of resigning. A resignation request had been linked by Archbishop Viganò with the publication of the dossier. ANSA did not name a specific source but merely "collaborator" of the Pope. There is, however, no reasonable doubt that the information was not from the immediate circle of the Pope and that their publication was intentional at that time.
On Tuesday, however, two journalists very close to the Pope reported the opposite in Avvenire, the daily newspaper of the Italian Episcopal Conference:
"Pope Francis is not sad about the Viganò letter".
And further:
"The personages over of Francis's reaction to the dossier of the former nuncio demanding his resignation were denied."
As in earlier moments of this pontificate, one source of the Vatican denied another, and the same immediately.
 
According to Avvenire , "the Pope works as usual". An assertion to the contrary of "a press agency" was described by the bishops' newspaper as "machination" and "vulgarity." Even Avvenire noted only "credible Vatican sources", but no specific names.
 
Regardless, Vatican spokesman Greg Burke responded to journalist questions with a sneaky counter-question:
"Did the Pope seem sad on Sunday evening on the plane? I ask you …"
So much for the aspect of papal affliction. On the more explosive aspect, Avenire did not deny the ANSA report on Curial Archbishop Viganò's demand for resignation. That the pope does not think of resignation corresponds to the facts.
 
Aldo Maria Valli, long-time Vaticanist of the RAI, who supports his colleague Marco Tosatti on the Viganò dossier, published an interview on Tuesday with Nuncio Viganò. He defended himself against harsh criticism from the papal circle, which cast doubt on his motivations and credibility.
"I'm not acting for revenge. I just want the truth to come to light."
In the interview, Viganò said even more:
"I was talking because corruption has now reached the top of the Church hierarchy. Turning to the journalists, why do not they ask what has become of the document box that - we all saw it - was handed over to Pope Francis by Pope Benedict on Castel Gandolfo? Was everything in vain?"
In fact, filming in March 2013 showed how the recently retired Benedict XVI. at the first meeting with Pope Francis he handed over a whole box of documents to him. At that time, the Vatican media attached great importance to showing a harmonious relationship between the two church leaders, which is why masses of pictures were distributed by both popes. It was not announced what the two discussed.
 
Yesterday, Cardinal Secretary of State Pietro Parolin spoke on the Viganò dossier.

"The pope is calm," the headline of Vatican Insider in direct speech, but "in the Vatican sorrow and unrest prevails."
 
The Cardinal Secretary of State thus ironed out the conflicting reports of the previous day. It grieves, but it is not the Pope who is sad, but employees in the Vatican. The dossier of the former nuncio in the USA had caused "great pain", but not Francis, according to Parolin, but "with the collaborators of Francis".
 
The Cardinal endeavored to give the impression that everything was going its usual course. The conversation with Vatican Insider took place on the outset of a reception in one of the courtyards of the Vatican Museums with "typical Mexican food and Mexican music".
 
If one reads the statements Parolin more accurately, they do not quite say what the title claims. Literally, the Secretary of State said:
"I have seen a statement from the Vatican press office saying that the pope is calm. What I have seen (these days I was traveling with him to Ireland and beyond), he seems calm."
So Parolin did not want to confirm this serenity. Next he said:
"The Pope is a great mercy, even in the face of such things that, of course, cause so much sadness and unrest. But he has an ability to be very serene."
The Cardinal Secretary of State did not want to comment on the case of Archbishop Viganò:
"Compared to such things it is only possible to express the pain, great pain. I hope that we all work in search of truth and justice, that these are the points of reference of our actions and not others. Of course, the matter is by no means alarming."
In response to explicit demand from Vatican Insider, the Secretary of State refused to comment on the contents of the Viganò dossier:
"It's better not to go into details about these things. I repeat what the Pope said: Read it yourself and form your judgment. The text speaks for itself. "
Voices surrounding the allegations, they are very "alarming." The refusal to even attempt to refute them raises new questions. With this sentence cited by Parolin, formulated on the return flight on Sunday evening from Ireland, Francis once more followed his strategy of avoiding unpleasant questions by a non-response. The fact that the Cardinal Secretary of State has also repeated this sentence confirms how much the bomb of the Viganò dossier shakes the current pontificate. The counter-strategy is to ignore and it sit out. Ironically, this is the strategy that has been too often used by the Church to respond to sexual abuse allegations.  

Meanwhile, the next storm is already brewing. Archbishop Viganò accuses Francis of having been informed of Cardinal McCarrick's depravity and yet remaining silent. Meanwhile, Francis is accused of having said nothing on Nicaragua. It is about a similar case: a gay double life and sexual relations of a bishop with his own seminarians and subordinates.
 
The signs are pointing to storm, and it seems to be the "homo-heresy" that shakes up this pontificate.

Sacrilegious First Mass With Theatrically Naked Erotic Dancing Man in Augsburg

Edit: there you go. I fixed the title and made it better. It looks like he was wearing a flesh colored skin tight garment while he liturgically danced. Anyway, whatever some lefties might try to make of it, a local priest elicited his enthusiastic approval of it on the radio later.

In the Augsburg Moritzkirche ("City Pastoral Care") it last Saturday an Aberro-embarrassment took place at the First Mass (Primiz) of a priest of the Diocese of Rottenburg-Stuttgart - With documentary photos

Stuttgart (kath.net) Last Saturday in the Moritzkirche in Augsburg ("City Pastoral Care"), there was a clear liturgical abuse that caused a shakeup of Catholics in the diocese of Augsburg and beyond. As part of the first Mass of the new priest Fabian Ploneczka the Diocese of Rottenburg-Stuttgart, held a so-called triduum in the Augsburg Moritzkirche. According to observers on site, a dancer dressed only in skintight boxer shorts danced the "theme" of the Vesper service and tried to depict the "Jeremiah Passion of a Prophet" with a ballet insert Church space became a dance floor, even the altar area, according to church visitors attending the event, where the dancer picked up the gospel, humped the ambo almost naked, and lasciviously lolled in front of the altar.

Following a performance by the dancer, the Stuttgart radio pastor Thomas Steiger spoke on the subject of "eroticism of the faith." He praised observers who received an alleged grace and especially of the male body, which, he says, spoke of a "sensual love for Jesus".

Worshipers told kath.net that there was a clearly homophile, yes, homoerotic event in a consecrated church.

The "event" led to the bizarre reaction that a churchgoer shouted loudly that then everyone could undress. He then partially undressed and stood up half naked in the church.

Some visitors left the service prematurely in which also children participated.




Augsburg is the original home diocese of the new priest, but has changed to the neighboring diocese Rottenburg-Stuttgart.

Victory of Euroskeptic Parties in Italy a Defeat for Santa Marta

(Rome) The Vatican media are undergoing a massive transformation. In June 2015, Pope Francis set up the Secretariat of Communications, a central communications ministry that brought together all the Vatican media under one central management. The transformation is also reflected in political valuations, also with regard to the struggles for the formation of a government overshadowing everything on the Apennine peninsula.
 
On October 1, 2016, the new dicastery became fully active when its statutes came into force. Francis appointed priest and communications expert Dario Edoardo Viganò as prefect. In September 2017, a cooperation agreement was concluded with the Jesuit Order, which gave the Pope's Order - invisible to the outside - a not insignificant position.
 
However, Prefect Viganò already crashed last March with the manipulative handling of a letter from Benedict XVI. which Viganò published at the expense of Benedict as a special flattery to honor the fifth anniversary of the election of Pope Francis, but ended in his forced resignation instead.
 
 It is the case that the criticism falls both upon Viganò and Pope Francis, which the international media directed at Viganòs' journalistic professional ethics and d his demanded his resignation, which Francis makes clear to the present day by two gestures. Viganò had to go as prefect, but was promptly equipped by Francis with a consultancy, and just for the Communications Secretariat. A minister who has to resign because of wrongdoing, but immediately becomes the chief adviser again for the same ministry, is a rather unorthodox method.
 
Francis went even further, and he hasn't appointed a successor to Viganò to this day. The place of the prefect is vacant. This brings Francis to Viganò, manipulation at the expense of Benedict XVI. or not, an almost unqualified expression of his unbroken esteem. Ultimately, Viganò is still the actual boss in the communications secretariat, despite being in the background. It is also confirmed by this example that Francis does not let go of people in whom he places his trust, but bolsters them.

The Giro d'Italia and the subtle political message

So the current topic.
 
Premature cancellation of Giro d'Italia
The Osservatore Romano was the last medium that was transferred to the new ministry. Strangely enough, the pope's daily newspaper yesterday reported on the Giro d'Italia , the world's most famous cycling race after the Tour de France.
 
The internationally watched and popular stage race ended with the last stage in Rome, which was stopped after one third and the winner was called prematurely without completing the race. Reason was according to the race management the bad road conditions in the Italian capital.
 
So far so harmless, but the Osservatore Romano usually does not report on such sophisticated events. A look at Italy's leading secular media provides the explanation. The premature end of the Giro d'Italia became an indictment of the Roman city government, which has been run since June 2016 by the Movimento Cinque Stelle. Since then, the mayor has been the lawyer Virginia Raggi. In concrete terms, the political movement founded by political comedian Beppe Grillo was portrayed as incompetent in a supposedly unpolitical context.
 
In parallel to the Giro deal, one of the most dramatic political tug-of-wars in recent Italian history took place in Rome. The Five-Star Movement has been by far the country's largest party since last March's parliamentary elections, claiming the formation of a government. However, this is decidedly rejected by the ruling left-wing Democrats (PD), to whom President Sergio Mattarella belongs, as well as by EU leaders in Brussels.

President undermines government formation

For 72 days, Mattarella delayed the task of forming a government of the strongest party. It was only on May 20 that the five-star movement and Lega appointed the nominee professor of law and non-partisan Giuseppe Conte, after it had long been established that the two parties had agreed on the joint formation of government and have an absolute majority in both houses of parliament.
 
As the parliamentary majority seeks a course change in the EU and on immigration - the recovery of state sovereignty, an end to mass immigration, the exit from the euro, the return to the lira, and thus self-responsible monetary and economic policies, and the dismantling of the EU to one common economic space, but without a common currency and without political centralism in Brussels - let Mattarella burst the formation of a government. The dispute erupted around the financier and economist Paolo Savona, who was to become economics minister. Obviously, nobody in Italy can become a minister anymore, whom Brussels does not want. The theoretical government majority therefore speaks of a grave contempt for the will of the voters, in that the outgoing left-wing Democrats (with only no more than 18 percent of the vote) and the EU, despite parliamentary elections in Italy, want to impose on them a pleasant government.
 
This leaves new elections in the air with an uncertain outcome. Vote until the result fits? It seems unlikely, however, that the left can recover. The center-right parties, especially Silvio Berlusconi's Forza Italia, hope to win in new elections, the three percent who lack the legal alliance with Lega since the parliamentary elections to form a government without Five-Star Movement.

Five-Stars and Lega: currently 94 percent of constituencies available

 
If they collaborate, Five-Star and Lega could win 94 percent of the constituencies.
But it could also be that the Italians have taken pleasure in a completely new way and confirm or even strengthen the majority of the Five-Star Movement and Lega . According to a recent survey by the renowned left-wing Istituto Cattaneo, the two parties could even win 94 percent of all electoral districts in a joint campaign. Then even President Mattarella could no longer prevent the formation of a government.
 
Until then, however, much can still happen, including an intervention by the "deep state", as the more recent Italian past teaches. Without Great Britain and Italy, only the Berlin-Paris axis would remain of the EU big ones.
 
The indictment of the street conditions in Rome is easily recognized in the EU-friendly, large media of the country as part of the psychological warfare against an unwanted formation of government by Five-Star Movement and Lega . Until June 2016, Rome was ruled for 25 years from the left, and five years (2008-2013) from the right.

Pope Francis, the Left Democrats and the EU

It is noteworthy that the Osservatore Romano joined in this chorus, albeit in a more restrained tone. It is no secret that the Neanderthal Pact, as the Five-Star Movement / Lega alliance is disparaged by its opponents, is rejected by Santa Marta. The dislike of the current leadership in the Vatican is earned especially by Lega. The recommendation of the Italian bishops, which they gave before the parliamentary elections at the direction of the Vatican, was directed precisely against the two victorious parties. The magic word of criticism was "populism." Voters were not told who to vote for but who they should not vote for: no "populist parties." The accusation of populism applies to the opponents of a multicultural and multi-religious reconstruction of Europe through the reduction of sovereignty and mass immigration. Similar episcopal announcements were made before the federal elections in September 2017 in Germany as well.
 
Above all, the Lega loudly contradicts Pope Francis' demand for unlimited immigration. This is a request to which the former Italian Senate President and personal friend of Benedict XVI, Marcello Pera found harsh words for in the summer of 2017. Francis's most closely related bishops have repeatedly lobbied with the Lega in the recent past. Where the Lega resisted the suppression of Christian symbols and customs in public, were not only opoposed by representatives of the political left, but, surprisingly, church representatives, too. Since the contradiction of Cardinal Marx against the Bavarian cross-decree, shows a comparable clerical schizophrenia which is also known in German lands.
 
Not to forget: The result of the parliamentary elections can also be read as a clear electoral defeat for Pope Francis, who of course did not run for office himself. So it was interpreted by attentive political observers as well. It is well known, however, that the cards are not reshuffled until after election night, and there the Vatican does not seem to be inactive in order to iron out the Pope's electoral defeat.
 
Behind the scenes, in the current struggle for the formation of governments in Italy, economic issues, especially in the context of the EU and the euro, play an even more central role than mass immigration. Finally, the parliamentary majority challenges the Treaty of Amsterdam, which created the EU. Both topics, however, are inextricably linked in the current orientation of Brussels. The Italian parties know that, and Italian voters seem to have understood that too - and chose the Five-Star Movement and the Lega.

Vatican Wreckovates Pantheon





(Rome) 1409 years ago one of Rome's most famous monuments was converted into a church. After just as long a period, almost 50 years after the liturgical reform of 1969/1970, a fixed, so-called altar was erected and consecrated.

On May 13, 609, the Catholic Church Sancta Maria ad Martyres was established from the Pantheon of Emperor Hadrian, the pagan temple dedicated to all the gods.




Pantheon in Rome

The transformation was part of a comprehensive Christianization of Rome. Christianity had overcome paganism. The Christians, who were repeatedly subjected to bloody persecution during the first three centuries of the Roman Empire, hesitated for a long time to adapt the pagan temples to the Christian cult. They waited until the pagan belief in the gods had largely died. Only then did they consider it possible to take over the idol temples. More than 1400 years ago, the solemn purification, the lustration, of the Pantheon took place in this context under Pope Boniface IV (608-615).

The "Pantheon" is a tourist magnet. If you want to see the sights of Rome, you will not miss this building, which will soon be 2050 years old. On Sundays and public holidays regular mass celebrations take place, as well as yesterday for the Solemnity of Ascension and at the same time consecration of the church. While the official website of the tourist attraction did not mention it, a reference to the website of the basilica was found in the days before. The 1409th consecration day should also mean a profound intervention in the presbytery.

The new people’s altar


As usual, the Solemnity was celebrated at 10.30 am yesterday by Canon Mgr. Salvatore Genchi. There is a collegiate staff attached to the basilica, the only surviving one in Rome alongside those at the four Patriarchal basilicas. The pastor is the Italian military bishop.




The main altar so far

However, at 4 pm another Mass, celebrated by the Pontifical Legate, Monsignor Angelo De Donatis, Vicar General of the diocese of Rome, was followed with "the consecration of the new bronze altar in the 1409th year of the consecration of the Basilica.”

Yesterday, a fixed, so-called "people's altar" was consecrated, thus creating that altar duplex with the main altar, which became the strange "characteristic" of the liturgical reform of 1969/1970.

The intervention was quiet and silent, which is why it is not known which representative of the competent office of monuments gave his consent to make the main altar on which over many centuries numerous saints, popes and priests celebrated the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass "superfluous" or it may be used to disguise the view. It is a true repression. The altar of the people was erected so close to the steps to the historic main altar that it was made practically unusable for a celebration in the traditional form of the Roman rite.

The artistic statement of the new national altar is described on the Basilica Internet page. In addition, the Apostolic Exhortation Gospel of Gospel is quoted by Pope Francis:

"It is good that every catechesis pays special attention to the ‘way of beauty’ (via pulchritudinis). To proclaim Christ is to show that believing in him and following him is not only true and just, but something beautiful that, even in the midst of trials, life can be filled with new splendor and deep happiness. In this sense, all expressions of true beauty can be recognized as a way to help meet the Lord Jesus. It is not about promoting an aesthetic relativism that could obscure the indissoluble bond that exists between truth, goodness and beauty, but to regain the esteem of beauty in order to reach the human heart and in it shine the truth and goodness of the Risen God” (Evangelii gaudium, 167).

"Shocking exorcism
"





On May 13, 609, as can be read in the papal annals, Pope Boniface IV carried out a "shocking exorcism" of the pagan temple before he proceeded to the solemn consecration of the basilica. The temple had been transferred to him the year before by the Byzantine emperor Phocas (602-610). After the outer purification, the gates were opened and the Pope entered the temple, which had not been entered by Christians until then. "An immense crowd" attended the event. The chronicles tell of frightening noises and terrible screams that came from within. The demons and idols "yowled horribly" because they were aware of being driven out. The Pope prayed and consecrated the building to Christ, so that the demons flew out of the old temple amid tumultuous noise.




The new people’s altar

The mystic Anna Katharina Emmerick (1774-1824) also saw in a vision the cleansing and transformation of the Pantheon into a church.

In remembrance of the time of the persecution, Boniface IV consecrated it the Basilica of Our Lady and all the martyrs. In addition he left many relics of martyrs, the tradition reported 28 cars full, under the now repressed main altar. From the formerly gilded bronze ceiling of the dome, Pope Gregory III. (731-741), Gian Lorenzo Bernini 1624-1633 created the nearly 30 meter high canopy above the tomb of the Apostle Prince Peter and the Pope's altar in St. Peter's Basilica.

The basilica houses famous artists, including Raphael. There is also the burial place of the kings of united Italy.

Italian Philospher: “Pope Hires the Worst Betrayers of the Faith”

Edit: this isn’t entirely fair, the House Vaticanist, and Papal biographer, Andrea Tornielli was manifestly bad years before the Sankt Gallen Mafia put their man on the papal throne. He was already pushing Communion for the remarried and divorced at least in 2012. (It was thought he had a personal investment in the issue.)

[Gloria.tv] The persecution of the Catholics inside the Church is growing stronger according to Monsignor Antonio Livi, a philosopher who served as a professor and dean at the Roman Lateran University. Talking to Gloria.tv, Livi points out that Pope Francis accuses of “heresy” those who are faithful to the doctrine and fight confusion. Livi added that Pope Francis has put at the top of the Church – quote – “the worst heretics” and that he has his encyclicals written by – quote – “the worsts heretics”.

Catholics Are Persecuted in the Catholic Church

According to Livi, those who profess the integral Catholic Faith are now often forbidden to give talks, and their publications are hidden away in the Catholic bookstores. Quote: “All the official Catholic media in Italy ostracize the solid Catholic doctrine.” Livi further states that it has become “habitual” to sack theology professors for beeing “too Catholic.”

Bishops’ Newspaper Slams Its Long-Time Contributor

As an example, Livi cites Avvenire, the daily of the Italian Bishops which – quote – “hosts and exalts the worst betrayers of the Faith”. Livi criticizes this on the Internet and was furously attacked by Avvenire’s editor-in-chief Marco Taquinio although Livi has been a contributor to Avvenire for thirty years, at a time when Avvenire was still Catholic.

Supporting Pope Francis Is Profitable

Gloria.tv asked Livi how Andrea Tornielli who before Francis’ election was defending Catholic positions, suddently became Francis’ court journalist. Livi replied that Tornielli and others have made the “choice of convenience” in order to become “propagandists”. Livi commented that Tornielli became rich with this choice while, Marco Tosatti, who was working with him at the daily La Stampa, but resisted the temptation to join the Bergoglio party, is now poor. Livi adds: “I am also poor”. The Lateran University refused to pay a pension to Livi. This leaves him with a minimal state pension.

New Old LIberal Bishop is Worried by the Immemorial Mass of All Ages

The Traditional Mass concerns the new Bishop of Porto, while the abolition of priestly celibacy would "not shock" him.
(Lisbon) On 15 March Pope Francis appointed a new Bishop of Porto. For the first time in recent days, the diocesan bishop has spoken in the media for the first time. Topics included the celibacy of the priests and the traditional rite.
On September 11, 2017, Bishop Antonio Francisco dos Santos of Porto was stricken unexpectedly at the age of 69 by a heart attack. His death triggered unease in part of the clergy. It was urged to change the Apostolic Nuncio, because he was "not enough of a Bergoglian". Only then should the follow-up question be tackled. This did not happen, but the new bishop sent out signals that could satisfy this part of the clergy.
The new Bishop of Porto is Manuel da Silva Rodrigues Linda. In the Autumn of 2013, Pope Francis appointed him military bishop of the country. Francis has now made him the diocesan bishop of Porto.
The exact date of origin of this diocese is unknown. It is certain that in the 6th century it was consolidated under the rule of the Suevs as a stable institution. During the subsequent Islamic rule, information about the bishops of Porto is missing for approximately 150 years. The diocese is a suffragan of the Archdiocese of Braga.

"That would not shock me"

The Jornal de Noticias has published the first big interview of the new bishop on March 25th. It is from a video interview taken by editors of the same newspaper and also published.
To abolish the celibacy of priests, the bishop said:
"That would not shock me. In the same way as the norm of celibacy has come, it can disappear again. At the beginning of the church the priests were married men." 
Bishop Manuel da Silva Rodrigues Linda was also interviewed on the admission of remarried divorced people to the Sacraments. Various Portuguese diocese have already published guidelines on this.
Jornal de Noticias: Will you also prepare a message about the remarried divorced? How will it comply with the Pope's instructions to integrate these situations in your diocese? Will you follow the Bishop of Braga or more to the Cardinal Patriarch of Lisbon?
Bishop Linda: Pope Francis does not provide any solutions, he initiates challenges. And the process is to scan the terrain, as we experienced in the Synod. It should be a way of study. The road from Braga seems very balanced. It is that couples who find themselves in this situation and want to re-enter the fullness of the Church's life should spend at least half a year examining the reasons why they want to do it, supported by technicians [SIC], psychologists, priests, and other married people [scary].
Jornal de Noticias: If a remarried person feels ready to receive the Eucharist, is such a great therapeutic effort necessary?
Bishop Linda: That is it! We are not just talking about a legal level, but also about the depth of conscience.
Jornal de Noticias: But is that not going to be an even bigger stigma for many remarried people, who already feel effectively stigmatized?
Bishop Linda: There are many typologies among the remarried divorced so that we have to clarify each case and analyze how far it is in accordance with the Church.

Repent because "strict groups were given space"

The new bishop was also asked by the newspaper about the "return" of Holy Mass in the traditional rite.
Bishop Linda: I am very worried because in certain cases it ties up the boys and especially the intellectuals. We do not know why these individuals find satisfaction in these rites.  
At the same time, Bishop Linda criticized Pope Benedict XVI because in 2007 he opened the traditional form of the Roman Rite home again in the Church.
The bishop said that the video interview did not make it clear whether he meant it ironically, but what to assume:
"Maybe we bishops and priests should repent because we gave room to these strict groups."
