If the Catholic Resistance isn't Praying and Fighting for this we are Lost

If the Catholic resistance isn't praying and fighting for love of God for our souls and for the souls of others then we are lost.

Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange put the immensity of the stakes well:

- "Our chief concern will be the immensity of the human soul."

- "[W]hat hell is: that boundless void which can never be filled; the unmeasured depths of the soul forever deprived of that sovereign good which alone could fill those depths."

- "[H]eaven is, an instantaneous moment which will never pass away: the unchanging possession of life everlasting, of God who alone can fill the boundless depths of the human will... our will is illumined not merely by sense and imagination but by the intellect which, grasping universal reality, grasps likewise universal and boundless good which, speaking concretely, is found in God alone, the infinite good."

- "Life everlasting then throws great light on our life here below. It draws us up out of our life here below. It draws us out of our superficiality and drowsiness."
(Life Everlasting, page 5)

Has Francis's Error on the Death Penalty "Matured" to the point of being Pertinaciously a Heresy?

St. Thomas Aquinas says "[I]f not pertinaciously, then he is not a heretic, but only one who errors." (Encyclopedia of Medieval Philosophy Between 500 and 1500, St 2-2 q.5)

In Latin pertinacious means "perversely persistent."
(Vocabulary.com)

Pope Francis appears to want to be perversely persistent in pushing the error that the death penalty is "inadmissible" with his newest statement that his contradiction of Church teaching is "matured" church teaching.

Thomist theologian Peter Kwasnieski said on Francis's contradiction of Catholic teaching:

"Whether Francis is a formal heretic - that is, fully aware that what he is teaching on capital punishment is contrary to Catholic doctrine, and proves pertinacious in maintaining his position in spite of rebuke - is a matter to be adjudicated by the College of Cardinals."
(LifeSiteNews, "Pope's change to Catechism contradicts natural law and deposit of Faith," August 2, 2018)

Cardinal Raymond Burke doesn't it appear about time to issue the Dubia Cardinal's correction or any cardinal out there maybe the death penalty correction?

Maduro's Troops "'are Killing the Indigenous on their Land'" as Tribal Leaders flee facing "'War... Orders to Fire at us'""

The Guardian reported that Nicolas Maduro's troops on Friday opened gunfire on protesters injuring many indigenous people and "killed a Pemon [indigenous] woman, Zoraida Rodriguez, after pro-opposition [indigenous] protesters tried to stop their convoy passing."

Cartographer Salomon Martinez traveling with with Pemon injured because "several of his relatives were hit" said:

"We want the world to know what is happening, that the blood of Venezuelan people is being spilled and the government is trying to hide it... They are killing the Indigenous on their land."
(The Guardian, "'Venezuelan blood is being spilled': tensions flares near border with Brazil," February 24, 2019)

The article reported that three people "were killed and more than 20 injured" as the Pemon tribal leaders are fleeing for their lives. "Candy, a leader of the indigenous Pemon Territorial Guard, told the Guardian":

"I am protecting the mayor and indigenous leaders... This flight into the forest isn't some kind of protest. It's war that they launched, they have orders to fire at us, whoever we are."

"I don't know if we are equipped to face them. And they want the mayor (of Gran Santana) dead or alive, they have given the order."

Moreover, in another incident "outside the Roraima base," the prominent Venezuelan human rights organization "Foro Penal, said it believed four people were killed. The opposition described the bloodshed as a massacre" according to the Guardian.

I am from New Mexico, my grandmother was indigenous, my DNA test shows I am more than 25℅ indigenous, and it makes my blood boil to see the international community and Pope Francis just standing by in silence as indigenous people or any people are being hunted down on their own land.

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church, the safety of the Pemon people and that the Maduro tyranny be ended.

Stalinist Maduro's Military Starving Nation to get Rich "Trafficking in Food... Associated Press, 'it's a better Business than Drugs'"

Nicolas Maduro on a number of occasions likened himself to Joseph Stalin in looks.

He and his military are indeed Stalinist in reality in that they are starving Venezuela as Stalin committed mass genocide by starving millions in the Ukraine.

The only difference between the starvation policies of Stalin and Maduro is that the dictator's military is getting rich from the starvation by "trafficking in food" according to the National Public Radio (NRP):

"In Venezuela, food has become so scarce it's now being sold on the black market. One person tells Associated Press, "it's a better business than drugs."

"And the food traffickers are... the nation's military... Maduro gave the military complete control of the food supply."
(NPR, "As Venezuelans go Hungry, the Military is Trafficking in Food," January 9, 2017)

NRP in the article reported the apparent reason why the Venezuelan military is allowing Maduro to starve the population and presently burning truck lots of food aid is:

"[T]he military isn't just running these black markets -- it's getting rich off them, [Joshua]  Goodman [the AP's news director for the Andes] says."

It is obvious that the Venezuelan military is corrupted by the Stalinist Maduro and will not give up its riches in food trafficking by overthrowing the dictator to save the starving nation.

It appears that all the people talking in favor of Maduro to the international press in Venezuela are well fed and associated to the military food traffickers.

The presidents of Colombia and Argentina have both condemned the crimes against the Venezuelan people committed by the regime's military and the dictator.

They must now consider military intervention to end the crimes against humanity which is the starvation of a population and the destroying of food aid to save those people because the military is in league with the dictator's crimes.

Opposition leader Juan Guaido seeing that Maduro's military "violently drove back foreign aid convoys" and is killing protesters has today said on Twitter:

"Today's events force me to make a decision: to formally propose to the international community that we must have all options open to secure the freedom of our country."
(Reuters, "Venezuela's Guaido says 'all options open' after Maduro blocks aid," February 23, 2019)

Maduro and the military apparently must either allow aid to their starving country or face the possibility of military intervention to end their crimes against humanity.

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church, that the starving Venezuelan people receive the aid and that Pope Francis speak out against these crimes against humanity or resign in disgrace for his silence.

Maduro's Troops attack Indigenous Bow & Arrow armed Tribe: Tribe suffers 1 death but captures 3 Lieutenants & Guaido Defies Regime

The heroic indigenous Venezuelan Pemon tribe armed with bows and arrows clashed with the Venezuelan regime's troops in a remote area near the northern border of Brazil.

Bloomberg reported in an article that the Pemon Tribe attempted a peaceful blockade "to prevent the military from reaching the border" so the regime wouldn't stop food and medicine entering the country to relieve those in need.

In the article, the 30-year-old Pemon Marcel Perez in an interview said:

"We made a blockade, without any weapons but our traditional bows and arrows... They had tanks, buses and a lot of soldiers. And so they decided to shoot at us with live bullets."
(Bloomberg, "Maduro's Troops Kill 1; Guaido Defies Travel Ban at Border," February 22, 2019)

Bloomberg reported that police said "Zoraida Rodriguez, 45, was killed and 15 people were wounded... The Pemons captured three lieutenants... A general was negotiating with the community for their return."

Moreover, the article said Venezuelan assembly leader, Juan Guaido, the declared country's interim president in defiance of the authoritarian regime's travel ban "jogged across a bridge" into Colombia.

The report said that at a freedom event by the border Guaido said:

"I have news for the world. Venezuela survived. The values of the Republic are present today in Colombia."

As this courageous Venezuelan heroes risk and lose their lives to allow food and medicine to be brought to the suffering of their country, the worldwide Socialist and leftist leaders from US Senator Bernie Sanders to Pope Francis refuse to condemn the Socialist strong man Nicolas Maduro and his regime.

The Socialist "economic meltdown that caused the humanitarian crisis [is] so severe... nearly 10 percent of the population, [has had] to flee the country... Datanalisis, Venezuela's  leading pollsters, [report] 72 percent of people wanted Maduro to resign, and a third... favor.. external military intervention."
(Crux, "Bishops call Venezuelan leader's new term 'illegitimate,' 'totally unacceptable," January 10, 2019)

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church and that freedom will return to Venezuela.

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."

Is this the reason why among legitimate world leaders, that is leaders who are not Islamists (Iran's leadership), ex-Communists (the Russian leadership) and Communists (the Cuban and Chinese totalitarian leadership), only the Socialist Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders and Francis refuse to condemn the Venezuelan Nicolas Maduro's Socialist dictatorship and back Venezuelan assembly leader, Juan Guaido, as the country's interim president?
(Politico, "'He is not going to be the nominee's: Dems slam Sanders over Maduro stance," February 21, 2019)

According to Politico even the left leaning Florida Democrats are slamming Sanders over his Maduro stance.

Why aren't Catholics, and all those who care about the plight of the oppressed Venezuelan people suffering under the Socialist "authoritarian... state," slamming Francis like even the left leaning Florida Democrats are slamming Sanders for not condemning Maduro and not backing Guaido?

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church and that relief comes to the suffering Venezuelan people.

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?

By the Way 1P5: Newman: St. Athanasius Ordained Priests against Heretical Bishops (apparently Outside Papal Approval)

- Updated December 2, 2019

Apparently, Steve Skojec's One Peter Five is accusing the Catholic resistance against the errors of Francis of schism.

These persons need to realize the Arian heretics were saying the same thing as One Peter Five is saying about the Catholic resistance 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 Francis)

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

Cardinal John Henry Newman said he 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.

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

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."

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

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."

Pope Francis's "Silent Apostasy" & The Wanderer's Fake News

After Pope Francis wrote God wills "a diversity of religions" which infers the heresy of religious indifferentism in the "Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living," Cardinal Gerhard Müller in his "Manifesto of Faith" said:

"The Church is the universal sacrament of salvation in Jesus Christ..."

"... To keep silent about these and other truths of the Faith... [is] 'the price of their apostasy' (CCC 675); it is the fraud of the Antichrist."

Cardinal Robert Sarah connected "religious indifference" and the "silent apostasy":

"This 'religious indifference' and 'silent apostasy'... [is] the major challenge the Church has to take up today."
(LifeSiteNews, "Vatican Cardinal warns of 'silent apostasy'; says Catholic charities must evangelize," 2011)

Pope John Paul II said that a "vision of man" which is "apart from Christ" or a kind of indifferentism to Christ part takes of the "impression of 'silent apostasy'":

[A]n attempt to promote a vision of man apart from God and apart from Christ... [in] European culture gives the impression of 'silent apostasy.'"
(Ecclesia in Europa No. 9, 2003)

Along this lines, in 319, Alexander of Alexandria in his Catholic Epistle wrote of the Arian heretic Bishop Eusebius and his collaborators:

In our diocese... adversaries of Christ, teaching men to apologize... the precursor  of Antichrist... who have become apostates."

Apparently, at the time Eusebius was a material heretic and in Alexander's words a material "apostate" because the Church hadn't formally condemned Bishop Eusebius.

In this same way, John Paul II, Sarah, Müller and I think Bishop René Henry Gracida are saying there is a "silent apostasy" which implies the material heresy of Francis, but not formal heresy.

In a recent YouTube video, "Pope Francis: Does God will many Religions," Thomist Dr. Marshall Taylor and co-host scholar Timothy Gordon showed beyond doubt that the Spanish and Italian transcript of Francis's words that God wills "a diversity of religions" can only be read as meaning God's positive will and not permissive will.

As happened in the Beatific Vision material heresy of the Medieval Pope John XXII so Francis needs to recant or be corrected for words that can only be seen as material heresy, but not formal heresy, as Bishop Gracida, I believe, is saying and Cardinal Raymond Burke has implied in his famous Catholic World Report interview where he said "If a Pope would formally profess heresy he would cease, by that act, to be the Pope. It's automatic."

With the above in mind, The Wanderer on February 14, 2019 posted a article "Did Pope Francis 'Apostatize' In Abu Dhabi?" which wrongly claims that Francis's words can be interpreted in a "orthodox sense" as God's "permissive (or contingent) will."

But even worst, the article is promoting the fake news that Bishop Gracida said things in quotes which he didn't say, but are said in a article "Bergoglians are the party of Apostasy, and no one can deny it NOW!" which the bishop posted from the website From Rome in his blog.

Everyone who follows Bishop Gracida's blog knows he posts articles which are of interest, but which he doesn't necessarily agree with.

It is disgraceful to quote Bishop Gracida saying things he didn't say.

The Wanderer owes the bishop an apology.

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

Is Francis's Amazon Synod really about Hitler's "Nazi... Deep Ecology"?

Updated: June 20, 2019

After a few photo ops with the the Indigenous Amazonians, the Francis Vatican Amazon Synod got down to it's real business as the Synod working document said in part II:

"Integral Ecology: The Cry of the Earth"

As reported on LifeSiteNews, Roberto de Mattei said the working document is about a "eco-theology which proposes a pantheist... 'cosmo-vision' unacceptable for a Catholic."

Where does this eco-vision originate in the modern world?

It appears that Francis's pantheistic eco-theology echoes the Nazi ideology of "deep ecology" in giving nature intrinsic value "independent of all human considerations."

This isn't the first time Francis and his Vatican have spoken of the "cry of the earth" and sins against nature. Gloria.tv reported:

"Francis noticed that he has rarely heard penitents accusing themselves in confession of violated nature... because 'we are not yet aware of this sin.'"
(Gloria.tv "For Francis Formication Seems to Be Okay - His New Sin Is "Violating Nature," February 11, 2019)

Catholics have been aware of stewardship of God's creation, but never of sins against nature.

The only sin against nature for Catholics is the sin of homosexuality. Francis and his inner circle don't seem to have a big problem with that sin.

However, the Nazis' ideology did believe one could "violate nature."

French philosopher Luc Ferry shows how Francis's apparent attributing of intrinsic value to nature originated in the modern world in Adolf Hitler's Nazi ideology:

"In... Nazi ecology... the central theme of deep ecology: the idea that the natural world is worthy of respect in and of itself, independent of all human considerations."

Francis's Theologian Kasper: Pope Benedict's Doctrine Chief is "against" Francis; & Kasper is "horrified" Müller said not teaching Catholic Truths "is the Fraud of the Antichrist"

The National Catholic Reporter declares, in the present pontificate, Cardinal Walter Kasper is frequently called "the pope's theologian." Kasper said in katholisch.de that the Vatican doctrine chief under Pope Benedict XVI is "against" Pope Francis according to Gloria.tv:

Cardinal Ludwig Müller is "engaging in reforms 'without and against' the Pope [Francis]."
(Gloria.tv, "No Joke: Luther-Lover Walter Kasper Calls Cardinal Müller "New Luther," February 10, 2019 and National Catholic Reporter, "Walter Kasper, 'pope's theologian,' reveals the brains behind Francis' heart," April 6, 2015)

Moreover, the Catholic News Agency (CNA) reported the close collaborator of Francis called the "pope's theologian" is "horrified" not teaching Catholic truths is call "the fraud of the Antichrist":

"He [Kasper] also said that he was 'totally horrified' to read Müller's statement that failing to teach the truths of the Catholic faith 'it is the fraud of the Antichrist.'"

Reuters: Pope "attacked" by "Vatican's Doctrinal Chief until 2017... He warned against 'the Fraud of (the) Anti-Christ'"; & "attacked" Cowardly "Silent" Bishops

Reuters reported that Cardinal Gerhard Mueller, the "Vatican's doctrine chief until 2017" in a "thinly veiled attack on pope [Francis]" said:

"Church leaders 'have abandoned the people... severely damaging their faith". He warned against 'the fraud of (the) anti-Christ'."
(Reuters, "Sacked cardinal issues manifesto in thinly veiled attack on pope," February 9, 2019)

In what Reuters called a "thinly veiled attack" on Francis, Mueller, also, apparently "attacked" the cowardly silent "bishops not teaching the hard truths of the faith" according to the National Catholic Register:

"Müller [Mueller] warned that to 'keep silent' about these truths is 'the greatest deception'... leads man to religious delusion, 'the price of their apostasy;' it is the fraud of the Antichrist."

Peters needed to Restate more forcefully his Declaration of Canon 915's Withholding of Communion for Cuomo in his new Excommunication Article

Canon lawyer Ed Peters is basically saying the new canon law makes it nearly impossible to excommunicate politicians like a Andrew Cuomo or a Adolf Hitler.

As a side note: if the new canon law makes it nearly impossible to excommunicate anyone even a Cuomo or a Hitler, does this mean that Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre and Pope Francis critic Fr. Alessandro Maria Minutella were never excommunicated?

Why is it that defenders of Catholic orthodoxy and tradition can be excommunicated by canon law while mass killing politicians like Cuomo and Hitler can't?

But getting back to the point, Peters in his new excommunication article on Cardinal Timothy Dolan needed to more forcefully restate what he said two weeks ago on Canon 915 about Cuomo and other pro-abortion politicians not receiving Communion:

"Canon 915 ... requires... action... alerts an individual about his or her morally gravely dangerous public conduct, to protect the faith community from scandal... Are these not the key goals sought by those calling for ... Cuomo's excommunication?.. why try to purse those goals with a cumbersome penal institute such as excommunication when Canon 915 is sitting in front of us?"

"In short, has not Canon 915's moment, at last, arrived."
(Canon Law Blog, "Canon 915's moment has arrived," January 25, 2018)

Canon 915 says:

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

Spokane Bishop Thomas Daly just used Canon 915 to declared to pro-abortion politicians that they "should not" receive Communion in his diocese.

I hope that Peters will again as he did two weeks ago say forcefully that Dolan should Canon 915 Cuomo for those who haven't read the earlier post.

Note:

Special thanks to a kind journalist who saw my original post and alerted me to the canon lawyer's earlier more forceful post which helped me rewrite the piece and not make a fool of myself as well as not misrepresent Peters' position.

Theologian: Francis's "Heretical" God wills "Diversity of Religions" like saying God wills "Gassing Jews"

Pope Francis in the "Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together" said:

[T]he diversity of religions, color, sex, race and language are willed by God."

LifeSiteNews reported that "a Dominican theologian who wished to remain anonymous" said of the above passage:

"[I]n its obvious sense [it] is... heretical."
(LifeSiteNews, "Pope Francis under fire for claiming 'diversity of religions' is 'willed by God," February 5, 2019)

According to the LifeSiteNews article, Fr. Z claimed the passage wasn't heretical because it can be read to mean by "God's permissive will."

The Dominican theologian said God's permissive will allows or "permits" the evils of sin, "diversity of religions" and "gassing Jews," but these are not God's positive will such as virtue, truth and created goods like "color, sex and races."

The theologian in the article said "the problem with Fr. Z's interpretation is the reference to religions comes in a list of other things that God does will (and doesn't simply permit), such as sexes, colors and races."

For Fr. Z's interpretation to work then the Francis list of God's permissive will items which only permits evil must not include "sexes, color and races," unless Fr. Z thinks "sexes, color and races" are evils God only permits.

Francis Betrays Christians by Embracing Sheikh who calls for Killing Converts?

Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb, whom Pope Francis embraced and just co-signed a so-called "religious freedom" document, has declared that Christian converts should be "killed" on his daily Muslim television show:

"[T]he apostate [Christian convert] must either renounce his apostasy or else be killed."
(Raymond Ibrahim.com, "Egypt's Top 'Moderate' Cleric: Apostasy a 'Crime' Punishable by Death," 6-24-2016)

The Sheikh has a history of saying different things to Western and Muslim audiences.

To Muslims he says "kill" Christian converts.

It appears that Francis is betraying Christians by embracing al-Tayeb.

Pope John Paul II rebuked Peters, US Bishops & Francis: "The Excommunication... includes those Accomplices [to]... Abortion"

Pope John Paul II rebuked Ed Peters' claim that abortion accomplice Andrew Cuomo can't be excommunicated in Evangelium Vitae, 62:

"The excommunication affects all those who commit this crime... and thus includes those accomplices without whose help the crime would not have been committed... abortion is a most serious and dangerous crime... excommunication is to... foster genuine conversion and repentance."
(The reproach of Christ, Catholic theologian  Ronald Conte Jr., "Contra Ed Peters on Excommunication for Abortion," September 9, 2015)

In fact, Pope John Paul II rebuked not only Peters, but Cardinal Timothy Dolan and all the United States bishops except for Bishop René Gracida and, it appears possibly, about five other US bishops.

Moreover, he rebuked Pope Francis who lauded as "a great Italian" abortionist Emma Bonino who was "directly or indirectly responsible for the deaths of approximately six million Italian babies."(LifeSiteNews, "Notorious abortionist lauded by Pope Francis to speak at church in Italy," July 19, 2017)

Look at what the bishops and Francis do, not to the lip service they give to protecting the unborn babies. And remember what Jesus said about doing:

"Then he will answer, 'In truth I tell you, in so far as you neglected to do this to the least of these, you neglected to do it to me.'"

"'And they will go away to eternal punishment, and the upright to eternal life.'"

Francis, the bishops, everyone reading this and I should tremble in our boots as we read Our Lord's words. Joseph and Mary pray to Jesus that we receive the grace to do what He asks.

Note: Some argue that John Paul II was talking about Latae sententiae excommunication (sentences already passed); if this is the case then the bishops need to tell the accomplices they are already excommunicated and must repent before going to Communion.

In fact, Bishop Thomas Daly is doing something similar. He is denying Communion until the accomplices repent.

Also, if this is the case then the current canon law appears to have some deep problems.

Is "Conservative" Peters a Fraud who apparently claims Hitler couldn't be Excommunicated because Mass Murder isn't a Heresy?

Did lawyer Chris Ferrara just expose "conservative" canon lawyer Ed Peters or canon law to be a fraud?

Peters apparently claims in his canon law defense of Andrew Cuomo that if the mass murderer Adolf Hitler had been a Catholic he couldn't have been excommunicated.

It appears either Peters or canon law maybe a fraud in which words are meaningless if even Hitler couldn't be excommunicated.

To prove this we simply are going to substitute Hitler's name for Cuomo's name in Ferrara's exposure of Peters:

"According to Peters, Hitler's promotion of mass murder in the womb... the Fifth Commandment... is not heresy... 'a divinely revealed object of belief.'"

"Since, Peters argues, one must show... 'that Hitler's words and/or actions canonically suffice to prove his doubt or denial of an object of belief'...  Hitler cannot strictly speaking, be excommunicated for heresy without more proof than his mere authorization of mass murder and his gleeful celebration of it... Peter's opines... one 'might be able to find him [Hitler] expressing some doubt or denial'... But even then... 'one must also prove that Hitler's doubt-denial was made obstinately.'"

"... If this case does not involve (a) the external violation of a divine law (regardless of Hitler's subjective disposition), (b) of special gravity, that (c) demands punishment, as well as (d) an urgent need to prevent or repair scandals, then words have lost meaning and canon law is 'a ass,'" to quote Mr. Bumble."
