Is "Bergoglio... a... Tyrannical Narcissist who... Confirm[ed] himself as the Supreme Arbiter of Reality"?

Catholic Monitor commenter MEwbank gave the following insights on a Monitor post:

You have given an overview of a remarkable number of threads that run through the fabric woven during the last century or so out of influences from anterior eras, all leading to the current supremacy of perspectivism or relativism in the Church.

Bergoglio is an exemplary representative of all these currents, not that he is brilliant and profound, as Austen Ivereigh alleges. He has no capacity to articulate the theoretical principles or lack thereof grounding these doctrines.

Rather, Bergoglio is patently a pathologically warped tyrannical narcissist who has long sought out these sources to confirm himself as the supreme arbiter of reality.

The underlying irony of all relativisms and postulating that one's arbitrary dialectical holding of selectively interpreted polarities in tension is that such is ultimately contradictory.

After all, the supposed ultimate Demiurge (in this case it is Bergoglio endeavoring to make the Church into what he believes it should be, which is merged with globalist ideological secularism and its false humanism) or Superman orchestrating these moral and political oppositions, which he would insist are mere shallow appearances, must presume that he possesses unqualified truth concerning the being of things.

And the one truth he presumes to possess reduces by sheer volition all truth and truths to continual flux and becoming.

This is the ultimate basis for subsuming of all theory and enduring truth into praxis, of truth into ever fleeting feeling and ongoing action.

All is process, and no essential identities or truths can supposedly be validly acknowledged as enduring or constant.

But this is a metaphysical lie.

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


Pray an Our Father now to offer reparation for the offenses against the Sacred Heart of Jesus, the Immaculate Heart of Mary and for the conversion of sinners.

the most fitting punishment for a college of Cardinals which wanted to run the Church and get rid of the Vicar of Christ would be to have a fake pope like Bergoglio who wants to be the arbiter of their reality. It is Divine justice. Bergoglio is the demon they have invoked upon themselves.

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."
(The Story of Our Lady of Good Success and Novena, Dolorosa Press, Pages 40-41)

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


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…
