University Scholar: Francis's Book "Dialogos" shows Pope "Favors Socialism... Cuban Dictatorship... Authoritarian Role for the State... [&] not... the People"

Jose Azel, a senior scholar at the University of Miami, in the respected international relations quarterly journal World Affairs wrote a review of a book by Pope Francis, which he wrote in 1998 while he was still the then Archbishop of Buenos Aires, which apparently the pontiff and Vatican don't want publicized or read.

There is only one copy of Jorge Mario Bergoglio's book "Dialogos Entre Juan Pablo y Fidel Castro [Dialogue between John Paul II and Fidel Castro]" available on Amazon and it is selling for $864.

The Spanish speaking Azel in his review of the book reported "[i]n my reading of the pope's complex Spanish prose... :

- "he favors socialism over capitalism provided it incorporates theism..."

- "He does not take issue with Fidel Castro's claim that 'Karl Marx's doctrine is very close to the Sermon on the Mount'... "

- "... and views the Cuban polity [form of government] as in harmony with the Church's social doctrine..."

- "... Francis leaves no doubt that he sympathizes with the Cuban dictatorship..."

- "... and that he is not a fan of liberal democracy or markets..."

- "... He clearly believes in a very large, authoritarian role for the state in social and economic affairs..."

- "... his language in the prologue is reminiscent of the 'liberation theology'... very intertwined [with] Marxist ideology. Fathered by Peruvian priest Gustavo Gutierrez, the movement provided the intellectual foundations that, with Cuban support, served to orchestrate' wars of national liberation' throughout the continent. It's iconography portrayed Jesus as a guerrilla an AK-47 slung over his shoulder..."

- "... Francis speaks of a 'shared solidarity'... that solidarity appears to be with the undemocratic, illegitimate authority in Cuba and not with the people..."

- "... Cubans will remember that this pope had a choice between freedom and authoritarianism."
( World Affairs, "Whose Pope? Francis and Cuba," Fall 2015)

The University of Miami senior scholar Azel in the article in his own translation of Francis's book quotes the pope saying:

"[N]eoliberal capitalism is a model that subordinates human beings and conditions development to pure market forces... thus humanity attends a cruel spectacle that crystallizes the enrichment of the few at the expense of the impoverishment of the many."

Did Pope Benedict resign because of the Extent of Francis's allegedly Gay Ally Cdl. Ortega's Cuba's "Sexual Debauchery" & Paedophilia?

According to a Spanish language Neo Club Press website article, the former head of "the medical services of the Revolution Armed Armed Forces" Roberto Ortega said that Pope Francis's longtime close Latin American collaborator and ally Cardinal Jamie Ortega was a "blackmailed" Communist operative.

The article said the Communist Cuban "regime takes advantage of the cardinal's homosexual condition to blackmail him":
(Neo Club Press, "Cardinal Jamie Ortega is being blakmailed for homosexuality," April 30, 2012)

"[A]n agent who worked for intelligence was the cardinal's husband," said Roberto Ortega "All religions are penetrated (by the State Security) including the Catholic Church and its highest authority, the cardinal."

Reuters reported the close relationship of Ortega to the Communist regime and Francis:

"Ortega, 78, enjoys unrivaled access among religious leaders to Cuban President Raul Castro and he has long been an ally of Argentine-born Pope Francis since their years together in the Latin American Bishops' Council."
(Reuters, "Cuba's controversial cardinal takes center stage in pope's visit," September 8, 2015)

In an LifeSiteNews article reviewing the gay activist Frederic Martel's book "In the Closet of the Vatican: Power, Homosexuality, Hypocrisy" it was revealed that the book spoke of "'rumors" of Cardinal Ortega's homosexuality.

The article said when Pope Benedict XVI visited Francis's longtime ally Ortega's Cuba:

"Benedict was so overwhelmed by the moral "filth ["sexual debauchery among the clergy" and paedophilia of Ortega's Cuban Church]"... that he wept. Martel claims... [and] start[ed] considering his abdication."
(LifeSiteNews, "New book suggests Benedict's trip to Cuba was German Pope's last straw before abdication," February 19, 2019)

Strangely, after Benedict's resignation it appears Ortega was almost jovial saying:

"The Pope... isn't afraid to tell the world he's too weak and tired to go on... governing the Catholic Church."
(Oneida Daily Dispatch, "Pope's resignation shakes Catholic tradition," February 12, 2013)

Is it possible that Benedict resigned because he was "overwhelmed" by the extent of Francis's close allegedly gay ally Ortega's Cuban Church's "sexual debauchery among the clergy" and paedophilia?

Those accusing the Catholic Resistance against Francis of Schism need to Read Newman on St. Athanasius

Some are accusing the Catholic resistance against the errors of Pope Francis of schism.

These persons need to realize the Arian heretics were saying the same thing about St. Athanasius. That he was in schism.

The historian Warren Carroll admitted that Pope Liberius excommunicated Athanasius which isn't an infallible papal action.
(EWTN.com, "Has any Pope been Guilty of Heresy")

(As an interesting note, in the article above the historian Carroll said "I deny that any Pope was ever a heretic." He wrote this before the pontificate of Francis)

The saint was resisting the Arian heretic bishops outside the papal approval.

Blessed Cardinal John Henry Newman said he consecrated bishops and ordained priests against the authority of the Arian heretical bishops (apparently outside papal approval).

Newman in his "The Development of Christian Doctrine" denied that Bishop Athanasius's "interference" in the dioceses of the heretical Arian bishops was schism:

"If interference is a sin, division which is the cause of it is a greater; but where division is a duty, there can be no sin interference."
(Gutenberg.org, "An Essay on the Development of Christian Doctrine," Sixth Edition)

The Bizzaro World of Francis's Sex Abuse Synod

In Superman comics there is a bizarro world where everything is inverted or "the exact opposite" of reality:

"[G]ood is bad, wrong is right,.. insanity is sane, liberty is tyranny."
(Urban Dictionary, "bizarro world")

We recently saw the bizarro world with the left and the leftist media directing their hatred at the calm Catholic pro-life Covington kids because they smiled:

At a liar who was with one of two racist lunatic groups who were publicly verbally shouting things leftists usually denounce such as racist and homophobic bigotry at the Covington kids.

Now, as the Twightlight Zone music plays, we are about to enter the bizarro world of Pope Francis's sex abuse synod.

Journalist Hilary White on her blog reported that Pope Francis's head of the upcoming sex abuse synod Cardinal Blasé Cupich at a press conference said it "remain[s] at the level, of hypothesis" responding to the question:

"On the "hypothesis" that the culture of cover-up comes from priests and bishops being themselves involved in illicit sexual activity"?

In the bizarro world of Cupich apparently it is only a hypothesis that being involved in for example illicit murder or illicit sex or any illicit activity it might possibly in some hypothetical strange inverted world bring about a culture of cover-up.

In Francis's bizarro world his chief Vatican sex abuse investigator Archbishop Charles Scicluna at the same press conference to the above question given to Cupich said "I haven't investigated [sex abuse] cover-ups" according to White.

In the Francis inverted world his chief sex abuse investigator doesn't "investigate [sex abuse] cover-ups."

Scicluna to the question by journalist Edward Pentin on in the light of the McCarrick homosexual abuse of seminarians will the synod address gay abuse of adults:

Francis's sex abuse investigator gave a long non-response.

Moreover, in a Crux article today called "Church's leading reformer on sex abuse warns of more McCarricks," Scicluna when asked if there are other McCarricks out there said:

"If we haven't found them yet, it means that we don't know where they are."

It appears in the bizarro world the Church's leading reformer and investigator needs help finding other McCarricks.

Here are a few leads for him:

Francis's longtime spiritual son the McCarrick-like Bishop Gustavo Zanchetta was recently exposed by a AP exclusive as a allegedly sex abusing bishop.

Apparently, everyone, but Scicluna knows that there is a long list of close collaborators of Francis from his closest adviser Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga called the vice-pope to his Vatican top doctrine chief Luis Ladaria Ferrer who are accused of sex abuse cover-up.

However, in the bizarro world of Francis's top sex abuse investigator Scicluna in his own words he says he doesn't "investigate [sex abuse] cover-ups" so only Zanchetta need worry, but of course he "doesn't know where they [or the McCarrick-like Zanchetta] are."

If he needs help finding the McCarrick-like bishop maybe he can read the AP exposé which says Francis's spiritual son was recently working at the Vatican. He apparently lives in the same Vatican residence as Francis.

But, Scicluna has to hurry to investigate Francis's "close personal friend" at the pope's home before Argentinean prosecutors get to the McCarrick-like bishop according to LifeSiteNews:

"Argentinean prosecutors have opened a criminal investigation for alleged sexual abuse against a bishop and close personal friend appointed and protected by Pope Francis, according to the attorney general's office of Salta, Argentina."

"The target of the investigation is Gustavo Zanchetta... [who] came to live in Casa Santa Marta, where Francis himself resides."
(LifeSiteNews, "Vatican sex abuse cover-up unravels as prosecutors home in on bishop protected by Pope Francis," February 18, 2019)

The Twightlight Zone music can end now as we are leaving the bizzaro world of Francis's sex abuse synod.

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.

Blessed Cdl. Newman: Is there a "Suspense of... [Pope Francis's] Petrine Magisterium"?

Cardinal John Henry Newman expert Fr. John Hunwicke says:

"I suggest that Jorge Bergoglio's formal refusal to respond to the Five Dubia constituted a formal entry into a period of Temporary Suspense of the function of his Petrine Magisterium."
(Liturgical Notes, "Suspense of the Magisterium," November 25, 2016)

Hunwicke gets this from Cardinal Newman which means there is a temporary "cessation of the Magisterial teaching or office during a 'suspense.'"
Liturgical Notes, "The temporary suspense of the Ecclesia Dozens," February 26, 2018)

Newman saw the Suspense of the Magisterium during the "Arian controversy, in which the great majority of the Bishops... including the Successor of S Peter, were either heretics or were cowed into silence" according to Hunwicke.

The Newman expert by this means that the Arian compromised pope and bishops as well as Pope Francis and those who follow him into error "lost their function" temporarily, but not their papal or episcopal office as Sedevacantists would hold who claim that there hasn't been a pope since Pope Pius XII.

In the above article Hunwicke asks:

"During a 'suspense', does the episcopal ministry of those bishops who are heterodox on just one point still call for religiosum obsequium [religious submission or assent] on other matters?"

One of the greatest saints in history St. Athanasius gives us an answer to the question.

Athanasius fought the Arian heretic bishops tooth and nail on matters other than the Arian heresy.

How does this apply to us in our current crisis?

In the Hunwicke's "Temporary Suspense" post, a well-known blog commenter Fr. VF, who I know knows canon law (and spelling) very well, gave us a battle tactic in the Liturgical Notes comment section:

"Since 2004, the American bishops have repeatedly approved a document, 'Catholics in Political Life,' which declares that a bishop may 'legitimately' give Communion to pro-abortion politicians."

"I.e., the bishops have nullified canon 915. Canon 915 exists precisely because the thing it prohibits is grave matter."

"I.e., the bishops have voted themselves permission to commit mortal sin!"

"Surely, the teaching function of such bishops is "'in suspense'!"

Canon 915 says:

Catholics who "obstinately persist in manifest grave sin, are not to be admitted to Holy Communion."

What does this mean to the laity and ordinary good faithful priests and bishops?

Laity must first pray for God's grace as well as wisdom and then they can demand that priests and bishops who still have the Catholic faith refuse to give Communion to heterodox bishops, cardinals and popes.

I am sure the greatest Catholic hero of orthodoxy St. Athanasius never gave Communion to Arian bishops.

Is Francis's next McCarrick the Venezuelan Dictator Maduro?

Pope Francis has decided to throw under the bus his long time close collaborator ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick.

McCarrick helped Francis get elected pope, helped him promote pro-gay bishops and construct with Cardinal Pietro Parolin the Vatican's China deal that betrayed the Chinese Catholic underground Church.

The laicization of McCarrick appears to be a obviously public relations ploy to show Francis is tough on sex abuse predators and their cover-up bishops just before a anti-sex abuse conference even as he promotes almost all of McCarrick's pro-gay collaborators and his hand picked pro-gay Cardinal Blasé Cupich who will head the so-called anti-sex abuse Vatican meeting.

The current pope brought McCarrick back into power after Pope Benedict XVI had de-legitimized him by disallowing him from taking part in any type of ministry or activity.

Once the pope brought him back to power he kept him in power until he made Francis look bad especially after the Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò testimony.

As with McCarrick, Latino newspapers and commentator have reported that Francis by his so-called call for "dialogue" and legitimisation of Nicolas Maduro by meeting with him at the Vatican has helped to keep the dictator in power for years.

It appears that Francis is about to throw the dictator under the bus, as he did with McCarrick, now that he is making the pope look bad to Latinos as numerous Latin American bishops conferences condemn Maduro.

The Catholic News Agency just reported that Francis, after years of legitimisation of the dictator, is finally cutting ties with Maduro in a recent letter with conditions of dialogue for the despot which he can't do without losing his dictatorship.

The letter made public by Vatican operatives called for the following conditions according to CNA:

"[L]iberation of political prisoners, re-establishment of the constitutional assembly, open access for humanitarian aid, free political elections."
(Catholic News Agency (CNA), "Analysis: Pope Francis' position on Venezuela," February 16, 2019)

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.




Vatican Approved Book: Francis knew McCarrick was a Predator "but considered this Fact 'Insufficient to Condemn him'"

Pope Francis's Vatican official Fr. Antonio Spadaro called the mouthpiece of the pope apparently approved of a book, "In the Closet of the Vatican: Power, Homosexuality Hypocrisy," by gay activist and pro-Francis Frederic Martel even giving an interview for the book.

The apparently Vatican approved book reports according to Breitbart that:

"Francis had been informed that Cardinal Theodore McCarrick had been having sexual relations with seminarians and priests, but considered this facts "insufficient to condemn him."
(Breitbart, "Report: Pope knew of McCarrick's Crimes, considered them Unimportant," February 17, 2019)

It is important to repeat that the Breitbart article revealed that the pro-Francis and gay activist author said the pope knew that McCarrick was a predator but judged this fact "insufficient to condemn him" quoting Martel.

Moreover, the article said:

"Martel claims to have met with a number of Vatican officials, including Jesuit Father Antonio Spadaro, the Director of La Civilta Cattolic, and Martel includes an interview with Spadaro in his book."

Is Pope Francis a McCarrickist and a Homosexualist?

Now that ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick has been laicized, or removed from the priesthood, the question that remains:

Is Pope Francis a McCarrickist and a Homosexualist?

If Francis is a McCarrickist and Homosexualist that doesn't mean he is a gay sex abusing predator.

It means that like McCarrick, and his close American bishop associates, he protected and covered-up for predators as well as promotes a homosexual and sexual moral agenda counter to the infallible Catholic moral teachings.

McCarrick and his collaborators at the 2014 Synod on the Family were the biggest pushers of Communion for those in an objective state of adultery which according to Fr. Z is only a means to eventually make the intrinsically evil sexual act of homosexuality acceptable.

Francis used McCarrick collaborators and that Synod to eventually produce his papacy's center piece document Amoris Laetitia which apparently is ultimately a ploy to make homosexuality acceptable which Francis's top active American Cardinal Blasé Cupich has in word and dictate confirmed.

In fact, McCarrick closest collaborators and friends - Cardinals Tobin, Farrell and Wuerl - are part of Francis's inner circle who push the Homosexualist agenda.

The next question is does Francis protect and cover-up for sex abusing predators?

The ultimate Vatican insider Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò has declared that the following prelate members of Francis's inner circle "'knew in every detail the situation regarding Cardinal McCarrick': Ouellet, Baldisseri, Coccopalmerio, Paglia, Becciu, Mamberti."
(Gloria.tv, "Former US Nuncio: Francis Covered Up Homosexual Abuses)

It is known that Francis's inner circle is greatly composed of cover-up bishops.

Francis's longtime spiritual son Bishop Gustavo Zanchetta was recently exposed by a AP exclusive as a allegedly sex abusing bishop.

It is well-known by everyone that there is a long list of close collaborators of Francis from his closest adviser Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga called the vice-pope to his Vatican top doctrine chief Luis Ladaria Ferrer who are accused of sex abuse cover-up.

Does the evidence show that Francis is a McCarrickist and Homosexualist?

Cdl. O'Malley: Francis's Panel reducing "Punishment of [Abusing] Priests... 'will cause a Scandal'"

The Wall Street Journal reported that one of the Pope's closest advisers C9 Cardinal Sean O'Malley accused Pope Francis of causing "a scandal":

"O'Malley, the Journal reported, met with top aides to Francis in 2017, concern that... an appeals panel set up by the pontiff had reduced the punishment of priests found guilty of abusing minors."

"'If this gets out, it will cause a scandal,' the Journal quoted O'Malley as telling Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Vatican's secretary of state, and other Vatican officials."
(Boston Globe, "Cardinal O'Malley and Pope Francis had disagreements over clergy abuse crisis, report says," February 15, 2019)

The Journal article, also, reported that Francis never created a supposedly O'Malley inspired "special tribunal to try bishops who ignore or cover up abuse."

Moreover, the article recounted that O'Malley said "I really don't know the answer" to why Francis never created the proposed tribunal to try cover-up bishops.

It appears unbelievable to accept the theory that O'Malley doesn't know that Francis couldn't create a tribunal to try cover-up bishops because his inner circle is greatly composed of cover-up bishops.

For example, Francis's longtime spiritual son Bishop Gustavo Zanchetta was recently exposed by a AP exclusive as a allegedly sex abusing bishop.

It is well-known by everyone including O'Malley that there is a long list of close collaborators of Francis from his closest adviser Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga called the vice-pope to his Vatican top doctrine chief Luis Ladaria Ferrer who are accused of sex abuse cover-up.

It is disingenuous to dishonest for O'Malley to claim he doesn't know why Francis didn't create the tribunal to try cover-up bishops especially since he acknowledged that Francis's panel reducing "punishment of [abusing] priests... will cause a scandal."

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church.
