Bishop Fellay and Pope Francis Met in Vatican This Weekend

Vatican Press Office vice-director Burke, announced on Monday that a meeting took place in the Casa Santa Marta on Saturday, April 2, between Pope Francis and the Superior General of the Society of St. Pius X.

We went to the Vatican information site and couldn't find it.  The Vatican  news website is the worst website ever made, but fortunately we have Rorate Caeli.

Rorate says that they, "learned it was a very positive meeting."

Update:  Official SSPX Statement.

The Resignation of Pope Benedict XVI., the "Lobby" and Their Destructive Mischief



(Paris) The French magazine Catholica had a conversation with the priest Ariel Gualdo di Stefano Levi, a Jewish convert who became a Catholic priest. The conversation had been already published last 28th of June in number 120 of the magazine. Nevertheless, take a look at what Levi di Gualdo has to say, he who is known for his direct and unvarnished analysis. The conversation was about how a lobby, says Levi di Gualdo, often triggered aggressive and oppressive media campaigns against the Pope during the pontificate of Pope Benedict XVI.. Since the surrender of the German Pope, however, complete silence prevails. The lobby seems to have reached their goal and may, as the priests of the diocese of Rome, continue undisturbed in their decomposing mischief.

In the years after the Second Vatican Council, says Levi di Gualdo, there has been a return to the situation that prevailed before the Council of Trent. A situation which is characterized by decay and worrying infighting. The resignation of Benedict XVI. represented an unprecedented event, the culmination of a crisis which coincided with the 50th anniversary celebrations of the Council. No coincidence, as the priest says. Especially when you consider that this Council actually was meant to rejuvenate the Church institutions and wanted to give believers new vigor. The resignation of Benedict XVI. remains hard to decipher. Many would, in this connection with unruliness, because many tensions and power struggles have become gradually visible, says Catholica.

Among the authors who comment on the situation of the Church, is counted the Roman priest Ariel Levi Stefano di Gualdo "because of his clear language." He is the author of several books. Including a book about the "Zionist Century" and the 2012 published memoir "And Satan Made ​​Himself Triune" against the "satanic triad" of relativism, individualism and disobedience (see separate report from "Egomaniacal" Council for Homosexualization of the Church - Ariel Levi di Gualdos ). In 2013 a pamphlet by him appeared between the resignation of Benedict XVI. and the election of Pope Francis, called "Quanta cura in Cordibus Nostris. An encyclical in the form of a motu proprio" on the Pontificate of the Pope named Benedict XVII. In the "Encyclical" Ariel Levi di Gualdo outlined the principles that would be necessary for a fundamental renewal of the Church in his view.

Catholica: In your latest book you write about the role of certain Roman dicastries behind many serious scandals. Could you explain this situation in more detail and especially explain where the lack of some curial services is troubling and where are the compromises?

Levi di Gualdo: In this book I explain that we have indeed made the Second Vatican Council, but are then returned to the practice over the years in the period before the Council of Trent, with all their corrupt machinations, their moral decay and their concern for internal power struggles. Now that for half-a-century dialogue and collegiality has been discussed ad nauseum, previously unknown forms of clericalism and authoritarianism have occurred. The progressive master of dialogue and collegiality uses aggression and coercion against anyone who is not as "religiously correct" as he thinks. One can always ridicule the dogmas of faith, can always deconstruct it according to an anthropocentric logic, but woe to those who criticized the "holy" and "infallible" character of the Magisterium of some theologians, who are imbued with Hegelianism and the theology of Karl Rahner, a thinking that leads them to the side of modernism and heterodoxies of any kind: this one is ostracized by the united cliques in both the Roman Curia and in the Pontifical Universities.

It should be added that since 1970, homosexual clergy were admitted whose number has grown considerably over the years by cooption. Today they form a veritable mafia style lobby, powerful and ready to destroy anyone who gets in the way.

There are processes in view for the revaluation of values ​​ - the good is made into evil, virtue is wrong and vice is vice versa - that are so advanced that sound doctrine is converted into heterodoxy, if any of these clergy will be revealed to the competent authority with evidence and witnesses, the sentencing of one of them would be enough to jeopardize their whole system. So you saw in many cases that innocent people were punished and excluded, and the guilty who were protected, even though they themselves were guilty of serious moral transgressions. If it proved to be opportune to remove someone from the Roman Curia, they were taken by the bishops and protected in the dioceses which have formed influential circles, mainly surrounded by homosexuals. Again, this system is as corrupt, as it is impossible to do otherwise, because if a culprit is punished, he would take revenge and carry away all the other members of the mafia in his downfall. One must therefore protect him, no matter what the cost. The overall impression is of a contradiction in the government of the Church: that is evident in the proposals of some Prelates.

Catholica: What do you think are the reasons that restrict the freedom of ecclesiastical authority in this way?

Levi di Gualdo: It is paradoxical that the appointment of people just increased during the pontificate of "theologian Pope" in key positions of Church leadership, who are in stark contrast to the theological premises of Benedict XVI: prelates of dubious theology or a weak profile given the current challenges of the new evangelization. A common set of attributes characterizes it: behind an outward humility lies a preference, but is a preference for their own person but not the Church. I do not know how you will assess this pontificate in a few decades so glowing with its teaching, which is contradicted by the presence of such persons.

Currently, however, I wonder how the hidden influence of some could be so powerful (in the style of power brokers) works to make our Peter so powerless, to be a sailor without a crew in a leaky ship sailing through the stormy waves and winds.

But it is certain that in the Gospel there can be no room for misunderstanding: God will not judge us by our words, but by the wisdom of our works (Matt. 11:19). We will have to answer for ourselves before God for the talents He has given us, and possibly also for the talent that we have buried for fear of thieves (Matt. 25:14 ff). I believe that the Pope has a talent from God as sovereign that is both difficult but also precious and fruitful to use: "You are Peter and on this rock I will build my church." A talent that requires that the person receiving it, has to engage in particular for the fact that "the gates of Hell will not prevail against it" (Mt 16:18).

Without a doubt, the historians, when they study this pontificate, which took place in such a difficult and painful era, deep in this context of decadence that weighs on the church, will provide evidence that Benedict was trying with great effort, in the best sense, to act for the Church of Christ, in the context of what was allowed him to do in the circumstances. The masses will surely not shout upon his death, "Santo Subito". But it is likely that not in a few decades he will be called "Santo sicuro" and will certainly be canonized [...].

Society Still Open as Always to Reconciliation with Roman Authorities

Edit: Rorate just dismissed an Italian blogger Enzo Bianchi who claims to have inside information. In fact, French website Nouvelles de France ridicules him.  Indeed, the Society is open to an agreement with Rome, most likely this is much to the chagrin of those like Curial Archbishop Müller, the Prefect f the Congregation of Doctrine and the Faith  as well as  others who've been trying to derail it for a long while.  Here's the passage copied from Rorate:

Let us read this interesting - and real, not imaginary... - 11th paragraph of the June 27, 2013, declaration: "We mean to do the same: either when Rome returns to Tradition and to the Faith of all time – which would re-establish order in the Church; or when she explicitly acknowledges our right to profess integrally the Faith and to reject the errors which oppose it, with the right and the duty for us to oppose publicly the errors and the proponents of these errors, whoever they may be – which would allow the beginning of a re-establishing of order." In other words, a kind of open door is left to the consideration of the Roman authorities. A door that does not require a calling into question of Vatican II, but rather a pragmatic solution. This passage contains a true revolution. But it was curiously ignored. A pity! It was perhaps the true scoop that, unfortunately, eludes newsrooms that are more skilled in spreading gossip than in the study of ecclesiology ...

Church in England to be restored by Catholic priests dedicated to Latin Masss, says Spero News [sic]


Editor: We heard earlier how Muslims are trying to occupy churches abandoned by the effete and ineffective types who generally control the Church in France. It's not like Muslims harass women or anything. We did see an SSPX priest take over a French parish in 1977, why not? Now we're hearing about a different kind of occupation taking place in blighty. It's as if the tabletistas have finally acquiesced to superior and more virile claims of authenticity.

The Catholic Diocese of Shrewsbury, England, is in negotiations with the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest – a Catholic order that propagates the Latin Mass - to re-open a landmark church in the borough of Wirral. Located in northwest England along the Mersey River and adjacent to Wales, the church of Ss Peter and Paul's in New Brighton was closed by the Diocese of Shrewsbury in 2008 because it was deemed too large and expensive for its congregation. However, its side chapel was recently reopened to the public after a local campaign.

Now the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest, a group which has experience of reopening churches, has expressed an interest in the site. Based near Florence, Italy, the order boasts approximately 70 priests and mainly concentrates on missionary work by running parishes and schools in 12 different countries.

The Coming Decree on the Liturgy is Authentic [Not Watered Down]

Editor: Basically, Paulo Rodari is contradicting some of the big boys in town. Some editing with google-translate:

It is writen here , here and here that the Vatican is trying to water down the implementing decree of the motu proprio Summorum Pontificum.
 
In essence, the blogs mentioned above [Rorate, Messalatino, Summorum Pontificum]  instead of giving a greater impetus to the decree Motu Proprio, showing how it will explain the implementation of the Old Mass to the bishops in the best way; they are saying instead that the Old Liturgy is just a concession to the "traditionalists" in recognition of their particular sensitivity. Even still the bloggers write that the originator of this dilution would be Monsignor Charles Scicluna, promoter for  justice in Malta under the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, and Cardinal Antonio Canizares Llovera, prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship.
 
 I have personally made the necessary checks and I can say that, according to sources inside the Vatican, the information given above "is entirely without foundation." The implementation of the decree is not being watered down. Cardinals Canizares and Scicluna among others  are not working in that direction.
 
The Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei, which is now chaired by the prefect of the Doctrine of the Faith, Cardinal William Joseph Levada, has already prepared the text of the decree, is waiting for the difficult work of translation to finish, and expects to publish all (provided that the translations do not suffer delays) before Easter.

Bishop Fellay Predicts Reunion Soon

This over at Rorate Caeli, here.

The goal of your Fraternity is still to integrate the Catholic Church?
Yes, we have always maintained that we do not wish to go our own way. We maintain that we are Catholic and that we remain so. We wish that Rome will recognize us as true Bishops. Otherwise, the word schismatic is not used any longer regarding us. Now, if we are not schismatics, nor heretics, then we are truly Catholic. Otherwise, the Pope says that there is solely a problem of a canonical nature. An act of Rome suffices to state that it's over and that we reenter the Church. This will happen [Ça viendra.]. I am very optimistic.

Where are Michael Rose's Detractors Now?

We knew a lot of Dominicans were estranged from good sense and lacked a certain gravitas but this is ridiculous. Rorate Caeli reports Fr. Bernard De Cock, O.P. at Louvaine University who blithely states, "homosexual love can be God's love".

We remember when certain detractors at Crisis Magazine of Michael Rose's book, Good Bye, Good Men, once said that Louvaine was a perfectly acceptable place for the formation of priests.
