40 Days of prayer against the Church of Darkness — Day 18

FromRome.Info Video, recorded tonight at Santa Maria Maggiore.

ALL ARE INVITED TO JOIN US IN PRAYER AT MIDNIGHT EACH NIGHT, IN FRONT OF THE BASILICA OF SANTA MARIA MAGGIORE AT ROME

Intro

In the year of Our Lord 1820, God revealed to Bl. Anne Catherine Emmerich that the Church of Rome would one day be attacked from within. That there would be two popes: one false and dark, who strove to found a new Religion which would be the home of every heretic and apostate: one true and aged, who would be paralyzed by inaction and silence.

To drive the Church of Darkness out of the Church of Rome, it was revealed to her that Our Lady asked the faithful to gather at Midnight in front of the Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore, here at Rome, and pray with arms outstretched, in the form of the Cross, for the space of at least 3 Our Fathers.

Prayers being said Tonight at Rome

In nomine Patri et Filii et Spiritus Sancti. Amen.

Pater noster qui es in coelis, sanctificetur nomen tuum;
adveniat regnum tuum, fiat voluntas tua, sicut in coelo et in terra.
Panem nostrum quotidianum da nobis hodie,
et dimitte nobis debita nostra, sicut et nos dimittimus debitoribus nostris.
et ne nos inducas in tentationem, sed libera nos a malo. Amen.

Padre nostro che sei nei cieli, sia santificato il tuo nome;
venga il tuo regno; sia fatta la tua volontà, come in cielo così in terra.
Dacci oggi il nostro pane quotidiano,
e rimetti a noi i nostri debiti come noi li rimettiamo ai nostri debitori,
e non ci indurre in tentazione, ma liberaci dal male». Amen. (3 volte)

Our Father who art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy Name,
Thy Kingdom come, Thy Will be done, on Earth as it is in Heaven.
Give us this day our Daily Bread,
And forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us,
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Amen. (3 times)

Gloria Patri et Filio et Spiritui Sancto,
Sicut erat in principio, et nunc et semper, et in saecula saeculorum. Amen.

NOTE: Since, Bl. Anna-Katerina Emmerich had this vision in 1820, before the invention of time zones, midnight here should be understood in solar time, which at Rome makes midnight occur at 12:22 AM, presently, and thus the hour of midnight would be 11:52 AM to 12:52 AM. Try to say your prayers in that hour.

This Novena is explained and announced here in English, and here in Italian, in each place the citations from Bl. Emmerich about these prayers are given.

See the article published yesterday at FromRome.Info, The Church of Light vs. the Church of Darkness for more about this Novena of Prayer.

PLEASE NOTE: That until From Rome Info Video Channel at Youtube gets 1000 subscribers, it will NOT be able to broadcast the Nightly Prayers Live. So let all who are devoted to Jesus Christ, Our Lady and Bl. Ann Catherine Emmerich know that they need to urge subscriptions to this channel, so that we can promote the fulfillment of Our Lady’s Request for Her Heavenly-Approved prayer solution to the present Crisis in the Church.

To put a Newspaper ad calling Catholics at Rome to this pray vigil, will cost 2000 euros. Help us spread the word by a generous contribution here below. Our Lady promised victory, let us mobilize everyone to the battle!

Jean Mouton: Missa Alleluja

As we continue to peruse the sacred repertoire of Jean Mouton, the master of the Burgundian School who set Josquin des Prez on his career of magnificence, we feature today, Mouton’s Missa Alleluja, just in time before the Holy Season of Lent comes upon us. This beautiful performance was conducted by Merczel György at the Church of Saint Theresa of Avila Church, Budapest, Hungary.

FromRome.Info every day at 5 P.M. Rome time, features a selection of sacred music from the repertoire of Catholic composers throughout the ages, so our readers can better understand how foreign and inimical to Catholicism is the liturgical reforms enacted in the name and spirit of Vatican II.

Antonio Socci: Pope Benedict’s understanding of the End Times

“The Two Parts of the Church”

By Antonio Socci

Excerpted from Il Dio Mercato, La Chiesa, e L’Anticristo
Rizzoli, 2019

Translated by Giuseppe Pellegrino

And Reprinted with permission from his FB page

In September 2013 – only seven months after the resignation of Benedict XVI – Giorgio Agamben published a book with an eloquent title: Il Mistero del male. Benedetto XVI e la fine dei tempi [The Mystery of Evil: Benedict XVI and the End Times] (Laterza, 2013).

This philosopher’s interpretation of the event of the “resignation” made in the heat of the moment is surprising. It refers back to the question of the Antichrist and the kathécon.[1] (We shall later see that other thinkers such as Mario Tronti and Massimo Cacciari have interpreted the “resignation” of Benedict XVI in this apocalyptic key; however they are coming from a Marxist point of view.)

But let’s begin with Agamben. He focuses on an old essay written by the young theologian Joseph Ratzinger on the 4th-century theologian Tychonius who, commenting on the Book of Revelation, does not place Jerusalem and Babylon in opposition to one another (as Augustine would do, subsequent to Tychonius, in his famous work The City of God), but rather proposes that Jerusalem includes Babylon within itself.[2]

Ratzinger wrote: “It thus follows that the Antichrist is a part of the Church, it grows in her and with her up until the great discessio, which introduces the definitive revelatio,” that is, the return of Christ and the universal judgment.[3]

Ratzinger observed that “his doctrine [that of Tychonius] is objectively completely Catholic” and he demonstrated that it was instead Augustine who distinguished two cities, Jerusalem and Babylon, the “city of God” and the “earthly city” (that of the devil).[4]

The young theologian Ratzinger added: “Augustine objected against Tychonius’ concept of the Church, saying that the separation [discessio] between Christ and the Antichrist will not occur only in the end times, but is already fundamentally present now.”[5]

After recalling this old essay written by the future pope, Agamben notes that “during the General Audience on April 22, 2009, […] before placing his pallium on the tomb of Celestine V, Benedict XVI made a new reference to the figure of Tychonius regarding the way in which we ought to understand ‘the mystery of the Church’ today.”[6]

On that occasion, Pope Benedict XVI explained Tychonius’ thought in these words:

In his commentary he sees the Apocalypse above all as a reflection of the mystery of the Church. Tychonius had reached the conviction that the Church was a bipartite body: on the one hand, he says, she belongs to Christ, but there is another part of the Church that belongs to the devil.

Agamben writes:

The fact that Tychonius’ thesis now receives the sanction of the bishop of Rome, who calls him a “great theologian,” is certainly not a matter of indifference. What is in question is not only the thesis of the two-part body of the Church; what is also in question is above all the ecclesiological implications of this teaching, that is, the “great discessio,” the great separation between evildoers and the faithful – between the Church as the body of the Antichrist and the Church as the body of Christ – which much take place in the end times. Seen from this perspective, the abdication [of Benedict XVI] cannot fail to evoke something like a discessio, a separation of the beautiful Church [Ecclesia decora] from the “dark Church [Ecclesia fusca],” and yet Benedict XVI knows that this can and must happen only on the eve of the second coming of Christ.[7]

Then Agamben adds:

The [contemporary] Church has long since closed its eschatological office; but the decision of Benedict XVI [to resign] shows that the problem of the last things continues to act underground in the history of the Church. […] What interests the Apostle Paul [in 2 Thessalonians] is not the last day, not the end of time, but rather the end times [the times immediately preceding the end]. […] And one of the theses of Tychonius’ Commentary on the Book of Revelation, which Benedict XVI knew well, was that the prophecies of the Book of Revelation do not refer to end of time but rather to the condition of the Church in the interval between the first and second coming of Christ, that is, in the historical period which we are still living now. […] If we situate this understanding of Benedict XVI in the context of the situation he personally faced as pope, the “great refusal” of Benedict XVI is far from a reference to a future eschatological schism: his “refusal” recalls, on the contrary, that it is not possible for the Church to survive if it passively defers the solution of the conflict that tears apart the “two-part body” to the end of time.[8]

And thus we arrive at the “resignation” of Benedict XVI.

ORIGINAL FOOTNOTES BY SOCCI

[1] From 2 Thess 2:6-7: “But the one who restrains is to do so only for the present, until he is removed from the scene.” The kathécon is the “one who restrains” the anomos, the “lawless one” before the Second Coming of Christ.
[2] This essay was republished as the first chapter of Il nuovo popolo di Dio [The New People of God] (Queriniana, Brescia 1992). Tychonius (alternatively Ticonius) was an African Donatist writer of the late 4th century whose thought is incorporated into the writings of Augustine and also the Venerable Bede. His best-known work is “Seven Rules of Interpretation [of the Bible]” which are quoted and explained by Augustine in De doctrina Christiana III, 30-37. Tychonius’ Commentary on the Apocalypse is now lost (it is quoted by Bede in his Explanatio apocalypsis, PL XCIII, 130-134). It is believed that Augustine’s Commentary (PL XXXV, 2415-52) is a modified version of Tychonius. The late 5th-century writer Gennadius says of Tychonius, “He flourished at the same time as Rufinus; in the reign of Theodosius and his son,” thus dating his writing to somewhere between 379 and 423.
[3] Ibid., p. 20. The Latin word discessio means a separation or division, meaning a great cleavage or cutting in two. It also has the sense of withdrawal.
[4] Ibid., p. 24.
[5] Ibid. p. 23.
[6] From Benedict XVI’s General Audience of April 22, 2009 (the rich depth of the teaching of Benedict’s general audiences on the Fathers of the Church is astonishing when compared to the content and style of the Bergoglian magisterium):
“Ambrose Autpert’s most important work is without a doubt his commentary on the Apocalypse [Expositio in Apocalypsim] in 10 volumes: this constitutes, centuries later, the first broad commentary in the Latin world on the last book of Sacred Scripture. This work was the fruit of many years’ work, carried out in two phases between 758 and 767, hence prior to his election as abbot. In the premise he is careful to indicate his sources, something that was not usual in the Middle Ages. Through what was perhaps his most significant source, the commentary of Bishop Primasius of Hadrumetum, written in about the middle of the sixth century, Autpert came into contact with the interpretation of the Apocalypse bequeathed to us by Tychonius, an African who lived a generation before St Augustine. He was not a Catholic; he belonged to the schismatic Donatist Church, yet he was a great theologian. In his commentary he sees the Apocalypse above all as a reflection of the mystery of the Church. Tychonius had reached the conviction that the Church was a bipartite body: on the one hand, he says, she belongs to Christ, but there is another part of the Church that belongs to the devil. Augustine read this commentary and profited from it but strongly emphasized that the Church is in Christ’s hands, that she remains his Body, forming one with him, sharing in the mediation of grace. He therefore stresses that the Church can never be separated from Jesus Christ. In his interpretation of the Apocalypse, similar to that of Tychonius, Autpert is not so much concerned with the Second Coming of Christ at the end of time as rather with the consequences that derive for the Church of the present from his First Coming, his Incarnation in the womb of the Virgin Mary. And he speaks very important words to us: in reality Christ “must be born, die and be raised daily in us, who are his Body” (In Apoc., III: CCCM, 27, p. 205). In the context of the mystic dimension that invests every Christian he looks to Mary as a model of the Church, a model for all of us because Christ must also be born in and among us. Under the guidance of the Fathers, who saw the “woman clothed with the sun” of Rv 12: 1 as an image of the Church, Autpert argues: “the Blessed and devout Virgin… daily gives birth to new peoples from which the general Body of the Mediator is formed. It is therefore not surprising if she, in whose blessed womb the Church herself deserved to be united with her Head, represents the type of the Church”. In this sense Autpert considers the Virgin Mary’s role decisive in the work of the Redemption (cf. also his homilies In purificatione S. Mariae and In adsumptione S. Mariae). His great veneration and profound love for the Mother of God sometimes inspired in him formulations that in a certain way anticipated those of St Bernard and of Franciscan mysticism, yet without ever deviating to disputable forms of sentimentalism because he never separates Mary from the mystery of the Church. Therefore, with good reason, Ambrose Autpert is considered the first great Mariologist in the West. He considers that the profound study of the sacred sciences, especially meditation on the Sacred Scriptures, which he describes as “the ineffable sky, the unfathomable abyss” should be combined with the devotion that he believed must free the soul from attachment to earthly and transient pleasures (In Apoc. IX). In the beautiful prayer with which his commentary on the Apocalypse ends, underlining the priority that must be given to love in all theological research, he addresses God with these words: “When you are intellectually examined by us, you are not revealed as you truly are: when you are loved, you are attained”.

Ukranians lead the way

By Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Look at the Featured Image above: it is the official photograph of the Ukranian Catholic Episcopal Conference. The Catholic Church in the Ukraine originated in the conversion of the Rus a thousand years ago, and by the preaching of Saint Jehoshaphat, tens of thousands were brought back from schism at the end of the 15th century.

Here are Bishops who dress like Bishops and men of God. Here is a Church which has not lost a sense of the sacred in its liturgical dress.

And here is an Episcopal Conference that has some divine life in it, because it issued a Fraternal Correction to the Episcopal Conference of  Germany, warning them to hold fast to the eternal Faith.

Here is an Episcopal Conference which still has a proper sense of the proper authority of each local Synod of Bishops, acting independently and without fear of what others might say of them.

Palpable proof that how your worship forms how you believe and how your act on your faith.

Here is the official English translation of the news report:

Anti-papal idolatries

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

I am continually amazed by the consistency of those who adore Bergoglio as their new Christ, new Prophet and better-than-Benedict pope. When Benedict says ministerium they read munus. And if you ask them why, they say YOU are crazy, because the real reason why is that they cannot justify their Coup d’etat at the Vatican and in the entire Church, without fixating on that and never giving a reason.

It is kind of like Mr. Steve Skojec, when he sees Veri Catholici he reads “Bugnolo.” But ask him why and get ready to receive a lot of verbal abuse, because he has to say that to some how demonize the only organization which is NOT compromising or playing games with Bergoglio, as he is doing.

It’s not papolatry, not in the least

Papolatry is the word used to describe such an exaggerated devotion or reverence or obedience to the Roman Pontiff that one would be more willing to betray God and His teaching or His moral laws, rather than disobey, find fault with, or disagree withe Roman Pontiff.

A lot of “critics of Pope Francis” are using this term, because it is an excellent narrative control tool.  Because when you fault someone for papolatry, what you are really doing is affirming that Bergoglio is the pope and should be obeyed.

But as regards an antipope or usurper, there is no possibility of papolatry. Papolatry would only apply to Pope Benedict XVI, since he alone is the true Pope.

So any loyalty or obedience to Bergoglio is not papolatry, not in the least. It is demonic false obedience to an illegitimate person who is pretending to be your superior but who has no legal claim whatsoever to the office he is pretending to hold.

Thus, papolatry is an excellent narrative control term. It’s use prevents the person who is at risk of breaking free from the False Narrative from logically arriving and the correct Question: But maybe Bergoglio is not the pope?

Anti-papal idolatries

The correct term to be used is anti-palolatry, that is the idolatrous exaltation of anything which opposes the true Pope. And there are a lot of such idolatries, so it is useful to list them:

  1. Saying that Pope Benedict resigned the Papacy, because you hold that a tweet by Giovanni Chirri is more authoritative in what it claims Pope Benedict XVI said than what even Pope Benedict did say!
  2. Reading munus where ministerium is written in Pope Benedict’s Declaratio of Feb. 11, 2013, because what is most important to you is your job, your career, your wicked friends who prefer lies to truth, and having the right to live life the way you want without regard to truth, reality and law, despite the final consequence that you will be damned for all eternity into the Pit of Fire where all liars and rebels to God will end up!
  3. Saying that a Pope can call a conclave to elect his successor. This is a contradiction in terms, because both Canon 359 and the Papal Law on Papal Elections require that the Pope be dead or have legally renounced before the Dean of the College convoke a conclave.
  4. Saying that the fact that the Cardinals chose someone and call him the Pope makes him the Pope, and that there is is a presumption that what they did was legal, prior to any consideration of facts AND even despite any facts.
  5. Saying that Pope Francis is pope, regardless of whether his election was invalid or illegal, because nearly everyone was fooled into believing he is the pope. This is criminal psychopathy raised to the highest level. A thing is just because you can get away with it. — Stop giving money to anyone who even speaks this way! This is the mentality of a consigliere for the Italian Mafia!
  6. Regarding any consideration of the above to be in vain or futile or illegitimate unless it be done by someone who participated actively in the crime. This is the equivalent to saying that no one can judge a criminal except a court composed of criminals. More psychopathy.
  7. The laity can do nothing about this, they must simply wait and pray and above all shut up. This is the consummate form of idolatrous clericalism, as if they alone are saviors of the Church!

I am sure you have seen other forms of anti-papal idolatry, and so I invite you to list them below. But I hope you understand now, especially today, why so many of those who claim to be recognizing but resisting, are finding it so difficult to see any problem with the openness to idolatry in the anti-papal Exhortation to apostasy published on Wednesday.

Idolaters will never condemn idolaters. That is the Fourth Commandment of their religion: Honor your Bergoglio and your Pachamama and you will have a long career in the Church of Darkness and get abundant funding for your controlled narrative op.

TFP: But who is the pope?

By Br. Alexis Bugnolo

I want to thank a faithful reader of FromRome.Info for sharing with me an article which I had not seen, published on January 16, 2020, by the American Society for the Defense of Tradition, Family and Property (TFP for short), by Luis Sérgio Solimeo, entitled, One Cannot Destroy the Papacy to save the Church: True Ultramontism and the Right to Resist.

It’s a very Catholic article and well written and researched by a man who knows his history of the Church. And it appears that his immediate purpose in writing is to counter the insane course of Trad Inc. which has begun to doubt the very Faith of the Church in the papal office, its powers and its prerogatives. And I praise him for that.

However, though he appears to be an authentic Ultramontanist who upholds the rights and privileges of the Papacy, he seems to be ignorant of Canon Law or unwilling to uphold THE LAWS OF THE PAPACY ABOUT THE PAPACY.

Because he keeps calling Bergoglio the Pope and he says that its is the critics of Bergoglio who are causing confusion!

What about Canon 332 §2, which says a Roman Pontiff resigns when he renounces the Petrine Munus? Period.  What about true loyalty to the Pope on Feb. 11, 2013. Did that not include resisting the wrong and unauthorized interpretation put out by the St. Gallen Mafia, who said that Pope Benedict XVI had resigned the Papal Office?

You have to scratch your head about the mental gymnastics which are necessary to write such a fine article on loyalty to the papacy, SO AS TO CONVINCE YOUR READERS TO GIVE THEIR LOYALTY TO A FALSE POPE and refuse it from a TRUE POPE.

Because who really is destroying the Papacy? Is it not Bergoglio? And what is the most destructive thing one can do in regard to the Papacy, if not refuse the true Pope and adhere to a destroyer?

I think everyone who is in the TFP Movement needs to ask their leaders what is going on? Has the TPF movement from Brazil fallen in with the members of the House of Rampolla del Tindaro, who have worked for more than 100 years to destroy the Church from within? — If so, they better jump ship quickly before they start being forced by their leadership to worship Pachamama.

Despair, Control and Do-nothingness

By. Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Resisting and breaking free from a cultural of propaganda requires understanding what it does to those who keep listening to it, without reacting virtuously.

The goal of the pro-Bergoglian propaganda is to get you to stop resisting him, to break you down with constant scandals, so that you give up hope for the Catholic Church and begin to accept what you are told to do to deny Jesus Christ. It is like the Aggiornamento on steroids.

I explained the utter malignancy begin the spirit of the Aggiornamento in my essay, The Downfall of Luciferian Pride. Now, it is time to do the same for the Bergoglian Church.

The Causes are Systematic but not Institutional

The causes of the current Crisis in the Church are systematic, not Institutional. That is, the Church has from God just as much favor and grace as She has always had, and the graces and fonts of holiness in those Orders, Monasteries, Congregations and Societies founded by Saints are just as present and vital as ever.

The problem rather is systematic. That is, it is the classes of persons who have been put in power in the institutions of the Church or accepted as members. And it has been a long process of filtration of candidates.

Necessary in all of this was Vatican II and the aggiornamento. The Anti-Church needed a way to set up a litmus test whereby they could exclude Cardinals, Bishops, Priests, Religious and Laity from the power structures of the Church, and yet do it in the light of day in the name of being faithful to the Church. The means for that was  Vatican II, because at Vatican II the Gospels are replaced by the documents of Vatican II, and Catholic Tradition is replaced by the Aggiornamento. Now anyone who says that fidelity to the Gospels or Tradition means we must oppose this or that of Vatican II, or this or that interpretation of Vatican II, is “resisting the Holy Spirit”, “opposing the Council”, “not faithful to the Church” etc. etc. — I do not have to recite it, you have heard it for 60 years.

So we have to recognize that the people we are dealing with, either the Bergoglians who are actively destroying the Church or those who do nothing and allow them to destroy the Church, are NOT the persons they should be: and they most likely are so far from God in their personal lives that they have not the grace of God or the Faith of the Church in them, to cause even a small reaction. They are dead. And it is no exaggeration to say that they are spiritually dead, because in 7 years we have not seen a truly Catholic response from them. Many of them may not even be members of the Church on account of heresy, schism or apostasy, which they have done in public, but just has not been reported.

Class warfare

The real class warfare, then, of this class of walking but dead Catholics is against those few Catholics who are still living their faith. We are the target because it comes almost naturally to us — by the grace of  God, not by our own doing — that we

  • Find Bergoglio revolting
  • Recognize that he has not the Faith
  • Recognize that such a man could never be the Pope
  • Recognize that he is the greatest enemy of the Church in 2000  years
  • Recognize that what he is doing is demonic
  • Recognize that he is a False Prophet if not The False Prophet or the Antichrist
  • Recognize that he must be opposed at all costs
  • Recognize that the cult of which he is the Head is not the Catholic Church
  • Recognize immediately that Benedict is still the pope because he did not resign the Petrine Munus, as canon 332 §2 requires
  • Recognize that it is grave sin to compromise and collaborate with Bergoglio

Consequently, this dead class of individuals who sacrificed God, Faith, Friends and Family to betray everything for their career, are just the kind of men to be asked to buckle down and destroy more souls as a sign of loyalty to the Godfather of the Ecclesiastical Mafia.

Once you understand that, you can react in a more catholic way and with a lot less confusion and control from them.

Catholics who live the faith must understand that the Church belongs to us more than to them. And that no office in the Church has the authority to command what is against the Gospel, Sacred Tradition or the perennial magisterium, let alone what is in favor of that which is harmful to souls or promotive of demon worship or moral perversion.

Moreover, any Cardinal or Bishop or priest who knowingly rejects canon 332 to justify his adherence to the Antipope has lost all office and authority in the Church. So it is not even a question of refusing them obedience, they have no title according to which they can demand it. And pretty soon, all those who continue to name Bergoglio in the Canon will be in formal schism as well, because all those who could have known but refused to know will partake of the sin of schism and lose their offices.

So, we should take heart: God is on our side. And they only have death at their back.

Tactics of Control

The constant stream of news of scandals and sacrileges is intended to cause you to despair, to make you think the Class of the walking dead will win and that there is nothing you can do. They want you to move from shock to despair to surrender.

And then from surrender to compromise, silence and then to praise and applause.

We can see what they do and what the effect is if we just take a look at one blog like Rorate Caeli and how they have changed in 7 years. I know this case very well, as I was an avid commenter there, when they allowed comments, before Feb. 28, 2013, and I was the most ardent anti-Ratzinger commenter there, who was not a sedevacantist.

But the day Bergoglio was proclaimed pope, Rorate, who had defended Pope Benedict XVI ardently and praised him daily for Summorum Pontificum, now took the position that Bergoglio was the worst possible candidate to be elected and published a devastating and highly accurate and indeed prophetic denunciation of Bergoglio in the first 24 hours, if I remember correctly. KNOWING nothing about Bergoglio I took the position that we should not presume to judge the pope but give him a chance to show what kind of a man he will be — I was wrongly presuming he had just received the papal munus and that the prayer of Christ would now obtain for him great graces — neither had happened.

But yesterday Rorate told the world not to financially support any public commentator who is not declaring Bergoglio’s Exhortation on the Amazon a gift from God.

It is a 180 degree about face, and no reason really is given for it, except this, that Rorate refused to investigate the validity of the narrative given to the world by the St. Gallen Mafia, even after they admitted the St. Gallen Mafia was in control and are inveterate liars. They preferred to buckle down and accept the position of the FSSP that Bergoglio is unquestionably the pope.

Trad Inc. has pretty much followed suit. They are much more willing to attack faithful Catholics now than they are to question the narrative. They have accepted the narrative and won’t risk the slightest bit of social alienation from their group by daring to do so. They want everyone to work together, with them who wont question the narrative, and the only condition they have is that you stop questioning the narrative!

I think if you have half a brain you can see where that will lead.

In Conclusion

We need to pay much more attention to the Narrative Control techniques. There is such an endemic culture of lying that praising lies is considered the only moral norm left.

And we cannot hesitate to call out the apostates as they reveal themselves. You will see them sprout up among the population of do-nothings, because silence is consent. That is, those who refuse to take a position are not what we might want them to be, those struggling with coming out and joining the forces which oppose the AntiChurch, rather, they are more likely to be those who have no problem with it or think that by playing a waiting game they will not be changed.

But if you do not declare evil evil, and lies lies, then you have changed. You have betrayed the most fundamental duty of your Baptism: to reject Satan, his pomps and his false promises.

Frank Walker: Trad Inc is now more united in attack on Bergoglio’s critics

Frank Walker exposes the “level of skunkery” in the Catholic media. FromRome.Info has noticed the same palpable unity of Trad Inc. on favoring Bergoglio ever since most of their leaders rushed to the ancestral birth place of the Nazi Party and could not explain why they spent so much effort doing something so insignificant.

Walker quotes of the day: “The Brilliance of this scheming is diabolical”. “Rorate makes it clear who they want to shut up: Don’t give money to those who do not celebrate Bergoglio’s Exhortation!”

Divine & Empowering vs. Nasty & Effeminate

By Br. Alexis Bugnolo

One of the objectives of radical marxists is to get the masses to think evil is good and good is evil, truth is a lie and lies are truth. We see all those who support Bergoglio involved in this sort of fraud and wickedness.

They want us to surrender to them, on account of feeling that victory is impossible. Trad Inc. has pushed this in recent days in nearly those exact words.

What they cannot stand is when Catholics use moral categories and call them out for their sin. They cannot suffer that there be any law or moral norm by which they can be judged. There is only one evil, and that is judging them as lovers of wickedness.

That is why their profession of faith is: Who am I to judge the wicked? And don’t you dare judge me!

But their faith is a ruse, because as soon as you challenge them in their lies they become very judgemental.

On Tuesday, the Vatican asked the police to take me in for a talk. Two hours of grueling accusations and interrogation, in an attempt to find me in violation of some law or regulation. It call came to naught, because from my youth, God and my parents instructed me to be squeaky clean about the observance of all law.

But the attempt had not principally the purpose of harassing me. It was all about shutting up the faithful who wanted to give their testimony in accord with Canon 212 as to what they thought about the last 7 years. In the Piazza San Pietro that day there were at least two dozen faithful. The Secretary of State at the Vatican had to ask the police to take me away before I could interview them and publish their laments and criticisms to the world. That is all what it was about.

So since the agenda of the Argentine is to shut down conversation and persecute truth tellers, I want to respond in this Editorial with an important truth.

Benedict is the Pope

This is a Divine and Empowering truth. Because those who know it AND who profess it

  1. Unite themselves to the MOST HOLY TRINITY
  2. Unite themselves to Jesus Christ, the King of Heaven and Earth
  3. Unite themselves with Jesus’s TRUE AND ONLY VICAR ON EARTH
  4. Unite themselves with the ONLY TRUE CHURCH, THE CATHOLIC CHURCH
  5. Unite themselves with the COMMUNION OF SAINTS IN HEAVEN

And by these 5 bonds of Unity, they, as it were, plug themselves into the infinite power of God and the infinite Mediation of Jesus Christ.

And against this there is nothing, but

The nasty and effeminate attempts of individuals who do not have the moral maturity or the intellectual capacity to respond in a constructive dialogue which seeks the truth. Because it does not take a doctorate in Canon Law, nor a doctorate in Latin, nor a doctorate in Philosophy, to understand that Benedict XVI is the Pope and has never ceased to be the Pope.

You only have to remember your third grade lesson on vocabulary. If it is a different word, it has a different meaning. That’s why words are different.

If you accept this truth with the same childlike spirit today, as you did when you were in the Third Grade (In the UK they call this year 4), then you are all set. The truth that Benedict is still the pope flows directly from this principle:

  1. Canon Law requires the renunciation of munus, to resign the Papacy.
  2. Pope Benedict renounced ministerium.
  3. Therefore, Pope Benedict did not resign the Papacy.

All the arguments to the contrary are excuses — what a minute — Let me correct myself — after 7 long years THERE ARE STILL NO CONTRARY ARGUMENTS to the 1.2.3 which I just posted here.

It’s Child’s play

In English, the phrase, It is child’s play, means that it is so easy a child can do it without being taught. Adults who have a difficulty in such a thing are therefore inexcusable.

I am reminded about the final comment which Bishop Arrieta made to me when I met him on Dec. 11, 2019: about my approach to the problem of the failed renunciation being a “strange mixture of Thomism and philosophy”. When I met with the Bishop I did not realize that the very copy of the Code of Canon Law which I use on a daily basis was edited by BISHOP ARRIETA before he was a Bishop. And it is there, in his own words, on Canon 126 that he explains that for a juridical act to be valid it has to posit the act of the same essence as that which is required by the law. So his final comment to me was not honest. He himself admitted 20 years before the very principle I was using to demonstrate the renunciation was invalid.

This is why, when you are told to shut up and be quiet or are insulted on a daily basis or threatened with a denial of the sacraments, of your job, or office, or of your faculties as a priest, or of your pension or housing, in response to your profession that Benedict XVI is still the pope, you need to recognize what it is: the nasty and effeminate tactics of immature crooks, who do not deserve to be called men of God.

We must stop being non-judgemental

The only way to restore the order of justice in society is see that justice is applied to the guilty in punishments which fit the crimes they perpetrate and that justice is applied to the innocent by defending them and honoring them for their righteousness. This is why being judgemental is essential to victory and overcoming the Crisis in the Church.

And this is why all the Saints and Fathers of the Church are know for their timely and opportune ability to insult the wicked, reprove error, and vituperate what is evil and immoral. Those who say a Saint should never do these things are simply liars.

They are also calling Christ a liar, Who publicly shamed Herod by calling him a female fox — a vixen — to denounce his sodomy. And Who called the Scribes and Pharasees a brood of vipers on two occasions — at least — as is recorded in Matthew 12:34 and 23:33.

Stoicism is a heresy

Finally, we have to avoid the very subtle heresy which has been promoted by evil Jesuits for nearly 4 centuries: Stoicism. In manuals of spiritual theology and direction, they have advocated that it is evil to allow your emotions to be stirred for any reason. This is not the Catholic Faith. This is the error of the pagan philosophers of the school of Stoicism, who held that all emotions were privations or due order in the soul.

God gave us the ability to feel anger, sadness, fear, revulsion, disgust, happiness, joy, gladness etc.. When we allow these emotions to move in harmony with the works of justice and to oppose the works of darkness, we are using our emotions virtuously as God wants. So in matters of controversy, we should not denigrate any servant of God who uses emotions to attack what is evil and whom is promoting evil. Because this is a work of justice. And if it causes us to wince, then we are lacking in fortitude and temperance.

At the same time let us not let the wicked manipulate our attention by their insults. They are not worthy of our attention any more than to defend the truth by refuting their daily lies. Being completely morally and intellectually bankrupt, without any defense of their errors, they have to insult since they have nothing other to say and because insult covers that they have nothing other to say by stirring up passions which cloud the mind.
