Pachamama Exhortation: Is Pachamama Idolatry okay if it's called "tak[ing] up an Indigenous Symbol"?

- Updated February 12, 2020

We had the Pachamama Synod.

Do we now have the Pachamama exhortation?

At the Amazon Synod, Francis said that the pagan Pachamama idols that were bowed down to had no "idolatrous intentions."

It appears that Francis in his Amazon Synod exhortation Querida Amazonia section 79 doubled down that it is admissible to bow down to Pachamama idols if they are called "an indigenous symbol":

"[It] is possible to take up an indigenous symbol in some way, without considering it as idolatry."

This is like a Arian heretic saying:

It is possible to say Jesus is man in some way, without considering it as heresy.

It is aways important to take what someone is saying in the context of their "cosmic worldview" and their past use of ambiguous language.

Is Pachamama idolatry okay if it's called "tak[ing] up an indigenous symbol"?

In practice, Francis has explicitly shown everyone in October, with no apologies, what "tak[ing] up an indigenous symbol" looks like in the Vatican gardens.

It looks like bowing down to Pachamama idols in front of Francis in the Vatican gardens and then saying there was "no idolatrous intentions."

Here's an analogy to make it clearer:

Suppose someone takes something from  you without your permission, doesn't give it back and doesn't even apologize, but says they didn't have a "stealing intention." Then later they say it's "possible to take things without permission from you because that is an indigenous symbol in some way and you mustn't consider it stealing."

Is stealing okay if you call "taking from you without your permission an indigenous symbol"?

If you really are stealing or committing idolatry calling it an "indigenous symbol" or not of "idolatrous intentions" or not of "stealing intentions" doesn't magically stop the act from being stealing or idolatry.

It appears that Francis is so obviously in-your-face about this with his Pachamama exhortation that it's almost embarrassing to see almost all the Francis conservatives and Francis traditionalists missing it.

Is everyone going to forget what happened after the Amazon Synod Pachamama worshipping?

In October, LifeSiteNews reported that Francis confirmed that the idols that were prostrated before and worshipped in front of Francis in the Vatican gardens were images of the pagan goddess Pachamama:

"Pope Francis has... confirm[ed] suspicions that the ["Vatican 'Pachamama'"] statues were idols."

Moreover, the news outlet quotes Francis himself declaring the "pachamama" idols were recovered and may scandalously and sacrilegiously be "displayed... at the closing Mass of the Synod":

"I would like to say a word about the pachamama statues that were removed from the Church at Traspontina, which were there without idolatrous intentions... the Carabinieri... commander said, 'the display of the [idol] statues [will be] at the closing Mass of the Synod.' We'll see."

"I delegate the Secretary of State who will respond to this."

"This is good news, thank you."
(LifeSiteNews, "Full transcript of the Pope's comments on pagan 'Pachamama' statues" and "Pope calls statues 'Pachamama' and apologizes for their removal from church," October 25, 2019)

The LifeSiteNews article, also, revealed that former head of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith Cardinal Gerhard Muller on EWTN said:

"[A]ccording to the Law of God Himself - the First Commandment - idolism [idolatry] is a grave sin... to bring the idols into the Church was a grave sin, a crime against the Divine Law."

It is apparently beyond doubt that Francis is a explicit heretic in terms of the First Commandment.

Cardinal Muller said Francis actions are "a crime against Divine Law."

Even supposing that Francis's actions had no "idolatrous intentions" which can only be judged by a imperfect council, the very "bring[ing] [of] the idols into the Church" and now saying that he is open and apparently willing to commit the scandalous sacrilege of "display[ing]... the [Sachamama idol] statues at the closing Mass of the Synod" which is "a crime against" the First Commandment that means he is "knowingly corrupt[ing] the faith."

To understand the enormity of the grave heresy, crime and sin of Francis just imagine if Moses on seeing his people prostrating in front of the graven idols had said there was no "idolatrous intentions" so let's "display" the idols in God's Paschal liturgy.

St. Thomas Aquinas stated "idolatry is the most grievous sin" in which "heretics... knowingly corrupt the faith."

There appears to be no doubt that Francis is as Doctor of the Church St. Francis de Sales says is "explicitly a heretic" in terms of the First Commandment who must by the "Church... [be] declar[ed]... deprived of his Apostlic See":

"The Pope... when he is explicitly a heretic... the Church must either deprive him or as some say declare him deprived of his Apostlic See."
(The Catholic Controversy by St. Francis de Sales, Pages 305-306)

It is now sheer madness if Cardinal Muller and the other faithful Catholic cardinals do not convene an imperfect council to "declare" Francis "deprived of his Apostlic See" after he is given canonical due process and allowed the opportunity to recant and, also, to investigate the validity of the Francis conclave and the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI which Bishop Rene Gracida has called for.

The greatest Doctor of the Church St. Thomas Aquinas in the Summa Theologiae in "3. Whether idolatry is the gravest of sins?" condemned Francis when he wrote the sin against the First Commandment idolatry is the "most grievous sin" especially when "heretics... knowingly corrupt the faith":

"[I]dolatry is the most grievous sin... heretics, if they knowingly corrupt the faith they have received, from sinning more grievously than idolaters who sin through ignorance... Idolatry presupposes internal unbelief... Idolatry includes a grievous blasphemy."
(Newadvent.org, Summa Theologiae: Idolatry (Secunda Secundea Partis, Q. 94)

Finally, this is a warning to myself and all Catholics, but especially to Cardinal Muller and all the cardinals who believe the Catholic faith.

Our God given faith united with our free will actions as well as our non-actions determine if we go to Heaven or Hell.

God is looking at you right now.

Your actions or non-actions may determine not just rather you fail to do God's will in this ultimate crisis of the Church, but rather you may spend eternity with the all-loving God or spend eternity with the all-hating Satan and his demons one of whom is Pachamama.

"For all the gods of the Gentiles [heathens] are devils."
- Douay-Rheims, Psalms 96:5

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Church as well as the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Thank you for this very important article.
It’s so pathetic that they have yet to pronounce him an idol worshipper, after all of this evil pagan idol worship. It’s truly an abomination!
I’ve read countless stories and comments about the evil coming from the Vatican and Amazon Synod. It’s infuriating! Where are the true Catholics/Christians!?! So many people are saying, just wait until God or Our Lady do something about this! Now, I’m
Not saying that God or Our Lady won’t intervene. It’s just that these people seem so cowardly. It reminds me of children saying, “Just wait until I tell my Dad or Mom on you!” Moses, himself, threw the tablets to make them get rid of the golden calf. Why can’t they strongly say or do something about this!?! Where is their courage to stand up for Truth, for Christ and His Church!?!
Some of them are saying, Saint ____, (fill in the blank), would burn the idols and kick the idol worshippers out of the Church, yet these people allow all of this idol worship and these demonic pagan practices to take place in Catholic holy places.
Many of the Saints knew that they would be killed for destroying idols, yet they destroyed them and died martyrs’ deaths, because they cared more about Christ and His Church, than worrying about their own lives. Sadly, today, people don’t even speak out if they fear they might not get invited to certain parties or might get verbally scolded or arrested.
Why do the Cardinals wear the red, which stands for martyrdom, when most don’t even want to speak against this abominable evil? What are they waiting for?... human sacrifice on the altars in Catholic Churches?... before they finally utter a word against it all!
It’s PATHETIC!
Thank you for calling them to do something substantial. God bless you, Fred.

Your welcome, Praypraypray. Thank you for all the kindness you have shown me and for all your prayers for me and CM. I will post your comment later today.

Something keeps coming to my mind. It is to send you my book "Hidden Axis" which has in it one chapter on a pro-life concept and project I started years ago which even HLI founder Fr. Paul Marx was interested in before he passed away.

If you are willing I would like to send you the book and get your pro-life activist opinion on it.

If you want to do this, I prefer you contact me in the following way:

Pope or not the pope (I think not), why would anyone trust Francis? He has been attacking the Faith for seven years. How many times do Catholics have to get mugged by this guy before they learn what he is all about? The guy has no street cred.

Look all, I'm grateful there are Catholics who still care about Christ enough to speak up.
The work we all do is important, we cannot solve this problem, but we can resist, and we must. Even our resistance is something, we can say, we did our part as well as we could.
God bless all, keep the faith!

OPEN LETTER TO TAYLOR MARSHALL

Dr. Marshall, for many of us (myself included), your podcasts have been a source of enlightenment, entertainment, and—quite frankly—hope, during this very dark time in the history of the Church.  As someone who studied his way into the Catholic Faith, having the grace and the integrity to acknowledge the necessity of conversion from the Protestant sect to which you formerly belonged, you have not been content to rest on your laurels but have “put yourself out there,” launching the New Saint Thomas Institute and discussing current events sub luce aeternitatis.  Your willingness to deal with things the way they are, and not the way they would be if we were all painted on holy cards already, is refreshing and appreciated.
Accordingly, I am writing to you today in regard to your recent statements about being “open” to the idea that Jorge Bergoglio is not actually the pope.  For a person in your position, so much as admitting that possibility must require all the grace and integrity you h…

Our Lady of Good Success: Is Pope Benedict the "Prisoner in the Vatican... in that Greatest Crisis of the Church"?

The apparitions of Our Lady of Success have been approved by the Catholic Church. Moreover, Our Lady of Good Success has had many miracles associated with it.

Here is part of the "Fourth Apparition: January 21, 1610" which the influencial and prominent Catholic blogger Laramie Hirsch believes may possibly be referring to Pope Benedict XVI:

"The Supreme Shepherd and Vicar of Christ on Earth, who, being a prisoner in the Vatican... in that greatest crisis of the Church, he who is obligated to speak in due time will remain silent."

Sex-abuse Worldview Vs. Christian Worldview

By Fred Martinez

Professor Allan Bloom, a philosopher who wrote "The Closing of the American Mind," thought that Friedrich Nietzsche was the father of modern America. He said, "Words such as 'charisma,' 'lifestyle,' 'commitment,' 'identity,' and many others, all of which can easily be traced to Nietzsche ... are now practically American slang."

But the most important Nietzschean slang word is "values."

"Values" are the death of Christian morality because values simply mean opinions. If opinion is how things are decided, then might makes right.

One must remember that whenever someone talks about values in modern America – family values or religious values or place-the-blank-in-front-of values – they are saying there is no real or objective right or wrong – only opinions of the self and its will to power.

Nietzsche's philosophy is summed up by Bloom as

Commitment values the values and makes them valuable. Not love…
