Bergoglian Vicar of Rome imposes Interdict upon all the faithful

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

The Bergoglians are totally faithless and insane. They are also extremely cruel and ruthless. This is proven by the fact, that Father Angelo De Donatis, the Bergoglian in the Vicariate of Rome has just attempted to impose the canonical penalty of Interdict upon all the Faithful of the Eternal city, by ordering all the Churches and Chapels closed and forbidding the Faithful from entering them!

This appears to be a vindictive response to the heroic declaration of Father Franz Xaver Brandmayr who said he would not close his church nor deny the faithful to attend his private daily mass, unless they force him.

Needless to say, this is a complete betrayal of the Gospel, worthy of a Judas Iscariot.  The few faithful who were still coming to Church to pray the rosary or adore the Most Blessed Sacrament are locked out! When will this madness end!

Here is my translation of the absurd decree!  But first, the central part of the Italian original (Source):

SI DISPONE

che il n. 1 del Decreto prot. 446/20 dell’8 marzo u.s. venga così modificato:
1. Sino a venerdì 3 aprile 2020 l’accesso alle chiese parrocchiali e non parrocchiali della Diocesi di Roma, aperte al pubblico (cf. cann. 1214 ss C.I.C.), e più in generale agli edifici di culto di qualunque genere aperti al pubblico, viene interdetto a tutti i fedeli. Rimangono accessibili solo gli oratori di comunità stabilmente costituite (religiose, monastiche, ecc.: cf. can. 1223 C.I.C.), limitatamente alle medesime collettività che abitualmente ne usufruiscono in quanto in loco residenti e conviventi, con interdizione all’accesso dei fedeli che non sono membri stabili delle predette comunità.
I fedeli sono in conseguenza dispensati dall’obbligo di soddisfare al precetto festivo (cf. cann. 1246-1248 C.I.C.).
Sarà cura dei sacerdoti responsabili dell’esercizio di culto nei singoli luoghi (Parroci, Rettori, Cappellani, ecc.) attivarsi per dar seguito a questa disposizione, innanzitutto con la chiusura delle aule di culto e con ogni altra iniziativa idonea allo scopo.
Ricordiamo che questa disposizione è per il bene comune. Accogliamo le Parole di Gesù che ci dice «dove sono due o tre riuniti nel mio nome, io sono in mezzo a loro» (Mt. 18.20). In questo tempo, ancora di più, le nostre case sono Chiese domestiche.

Vi benedico, affidandovi tutti ancora una volta alla materna intercessione della Madonna del Divino Amore.
Dato in Roma, dalla sede del Vicariato nel Palazzo Apostolico Lateranense, il giorno 12 marzo A. D. 2020.
Prot. n. 468/20

12 marzo 2020

My English translation:

IT IS ORDERED

that the Decree issued in prot. 446/20 on March 8, is to be modified accordingly

1. Until Friday, April 3, 2020, access to the parrochial and non parrochial Churches of the Diocese of Rome, open to the public, and more generally all the buildings of worship of any kind open to the public, is interdicted to all the faithful. There remain accessible only the Oratories of stably constituted communities (religios, monastic, etc., cf. canon 1223), in a manner limited to the same communities which habitually use them inasmuch as they are residents in the place, with interdiction to approach to the faithful who are not stable members of the aforesaid communities. 

The Faithful are, in consequence, dispensed from the obligation to satisfy Sunday obligation (cf. canons 1246-1248).

It will be the care of the priests responsible for the exercise of worship in each place (Pastors, Rectors, Chaplains etc.) to take action to observe this arrangement, above all by the closure of the places of worship and with every other suitable initiative to that purpose.

Let us remember that this arrangement is for the common good. Let us hear the words of Jesus who says: Where there are two or three united in My Name, I am there in their midst (Matthew 18:20).  In this time, more than every, our homes are our Domestic churches.

I bless you, entrusting to you all once again to the Maternal Intercession of Our Lady of Divine Love.

Given at Rome, from the office of the Vicar in the Apostolic Palace of the Lateran, on the 12th of March 2020 A. D..

Is The Conclave That Gave Us Pope Francis Valid and All The Appointments?

Seventh Anniversary Of Conclave

by Andrew J. Baalman

In this article I will be going through Universi Domini Gregis by Pope John Paul II to see if the laws of the Conclave that gave the world Francis, were broken and if he was not validly elected.

INTRODUCTION

It is seven years since we had the conclave that gave us Pope Francis, with all this craziness and madness that has happened ever since, and then the worship of Pagan Idols in the Vatican Garden and Basilicas, all our worries and concerns seem to not matter and when we want to investigate or do these reports, certain groups of Catholics say it is not necessary and just obey and not worry what is going on.  But I am with many who think there needs to be an investigation and here we will look at what news reports said those fateful days after the conclave and all the breaking news.

Let us look at some dates and newspaper reports gathered from the Chronology Of Team Bergoglio

Nov. 22, 2014:  John Bingham, reporter for the Telegraph, writes his report, Pope Francis: how cardinals’ Conclave lobbying campaign paved way for Argentine pontiff, which appears on the online edition at 8:15 PM London time.  It is in this report that the allegations of Dr. Ivereigh, regarding vote canvassing are first made news.  All the subsequent reports will react to this. (On Nov. 26, this article was published, with later information, in a Spanish translation by Secretum Meum Mihi Blog, here.)”

Nov. 23, 2014: A report by John Bingham, entitled, “English Cardinal ‘lobbied for Pope’“, is published on p. 16 in the Sunday Telegraph, UK, regarding Dr. Ivereigh’s book and the allegations concerning the vote canvassing by Cardinals in days preceding the Conclave of 2013 (according to Maggie Doherty’s Letter to the Editor in the Daily Telegraph, Nov. 25). An image of page 16 of the Sunday Telegraph is subsequently published by a Spanish blog on Dec. 1 (here)”

Nov. 24, 2014:  Libertà e Persona, publishes Lorenzo Bertocchi’s, La “squadra di Bergoglio”, which exposes the story for the first time in the Italian language. (This link discovered & added to chronology on Dec. 15).”

Nov. 25, 2014:  In a Letter to the Editor of the Daily Telegraph, Maggie Doherty, the spokeswoman for Cardinal Murphy-O’Connor denies that Cardinal Bergoglio was approached by Cardinals or consented to the work of “Team Bergoglio”. (See here for an image of that letter).

“Nov. 25, 2014:  The From Rome blog reports the events known and speculated about the canonical implications of UDG 81, in “If Ivereigh is to be believed, was Bergoglio’s election invalid?

“Nov. 26, 2014:  The From Rome blog adds an addendum concerning the implications of canon 171 to its previous report.

Nov. 27, 2014:  Returns to the topic of “Team Bergoglio” in, Ivereigh + UDG 81 = A Radical Problem for the Pope, which discusses both the letter by Maggie Doherty and the canonical reasons why it appears that the election of Cardinal Bergoglio may now be open to a challenge. This article was republished in a rather good Italian translation by Chiesa e post Concilio, on Dec. 2.”

These and all the reports gathered show how the news about the invalid conclave was being reported around the world, but there is something even more, a book by Cardinal Danneels which admits exactly what is going on, but was not given permission to publish it in Italian by the Vatican. Lifesitenews reported on this on September 25th 2015, and this quote explains what is going on currently:

Host-like Solar phenomenon appears over Vatican

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

The video filmed, yesterday, March 11, 2020, by an Italian who works along the Via Conciliazione, recorded the unusually solar phenomenon — produced by high humidity in the atmosphere — which made the Sun’s ray refract in the shape of a large Blessed Sacrament, according to the judgement of the author of the video. I agree.

The author, speaking in Italian, seems to want to say that with the Vatican and the Churches of Rome closed, the Host appears to be appearing to remind the Faithful that He is their God and they should take confidence in them. I agree. I believe this phenomenon is a reproach to the Vatican authorities who induced the Bishops of the World to close churches and deny the faithful the Sacrament.

Let the Vatican take note. First the Lord sends gentile reminders, then stern warnings, then punishments.

Pope Benedict XVI & Santa Maria Maggiore

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI has a great devotion to Our Lady. And as the Roman Pontiff he had occasion to visit the chief place for Her devotion in the Eternal City, which is the Papal Basilica of Santa Maria Maggiore.

Here is a video from his first year of pontificate, which shows how beautiful the basilica is and reminds us of happier times:

In this moving video, we see the Holy Father come as Pope for the first time to Our Lady’s Basilica. It was on this occasion that he gave the prophetic prayer, which is said each night at the beginning of the Perpetual Supplica to Our Lady, Salus populi romani:

Palestrina: Missa O Sacrum convivium

Today we begin our perusal of the sacred repertoire of  Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, the greatest Italian composer of the 16th century, whose fame has never been extinguished. He came to Rome in 1537, when he began as a cantor at Santa Maria Maggiore, and 14 years later he was in the service of Pope Julius III, who was also from Palestrina.

Today, we sample his Missa O Sacrum convivium, a Mass in honor of Christ’s Incarnation.

This performance is by the Christ Church Cathedral Choir, Oxford, England directed by Stephen Darlington.

FromRome.Info features at 5 P.M. daily, Rome time, a selection of sacred music for the edification of our readers, so that they can better grasp how contrary to the very nature of Catholic liturgy were the so called “reforms” of Vatican II.

 

7 Reasons not to panic over Corona Virus 19

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

There are at least 7 reasons not to panic over corona virus 19.

First reason not to panic

The pathogen is of a family of corona viruses already known to man, as the World Health Organization explains:

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses which may cause illness in animals or humans. In humans, several coronaviruses are known to cause respiratory infections ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS).

What they do not say, is how large a family of virus they are. But Wikipedia does, in the article on Coronaviridae:

The family Coronaviridae is organized in 2 sub-families, 5 genera, 23 sub-genera and about 40 species:[2]

Note, that each species can have variations, some more potent than others. But of these 40 species, and all their variations, only 3 rare forms were know to be lethal to man. Corona Virus 19 is just the one discovered in 2019.

Second Reason not to Panic

The infection rates are a lot lower than are being reported. There is no definitive test for corona virus being used in emergency room admissions at hospitals. Many patients may be suffering from other kinds of infections.  This is because the symptoms of Corona virus infection are similar to many other pathogens. Thus, identifying someone as infected by symptoms is unscientific.

Third Reason not to Panic

The mortality rates being reported are statistically being misrepresented.  They regard the rates of mortality of patients admitted to hospitals suffering from influenza like symptoms which are presumed to be Corona virus. Thus, the current rates being reported of 3.4% do not regard only the Corona virus. Also, death may not result from the virus but from other symptoms. A highly rigorous analysis of causes of death is needed, and this cannot be done daily, this requires months of statistical analysis and has to be conducted in highly controlled environments. None of that is happening.

Fourth Reason not to Panic

The mortality rates being reported are being used by the Media to cause panic by misinterpreting them.  A mortality rate of 3.4% of those presumed to be infected and who are admitted to Hospitals for grave symptoms, means that 3.4% of only that population dies. It does not refer to the entire population. You cannot multiply 3.4% by the entire population of your city, province, or Nation to extrapolate anything.

Since most never go to hospital for influenza like symptoms, and most have good enough immune systems to resist corona virus, the actual mortality rate for the entire population of your country will be a tiny fraction. The Ministry of Health data published yesterday here in Italy confirms this. While the press has claimed hundreds of thousands are infected, the Ministry confirms only 10 thousand, and 848 deaths, but they say that of these deaths there can be no certitude that they were caused by the corona virus without a rigorous study.

Thus, in Italy, with 60.48 million people, only 1.65% of 1% of the entire population is actually infected. While, La Verità today, is reporting that the first case came to Italy from Munich, Bavaria, when an Italian visited the city in January about the time of the Acies Ordinata event in that city, on January 18, 2020. Thus, in 8 weeks, a minuscule number of infections and deaths. While in Italy in 2017, 25 thousand died of the influenza from November to March, at a rate of 5000 a month, or 1250 a week, which would in the same period of time be a mortality of 10,000 or 12.5 times more lethal than corona virus 19.

Fifth Reason not to Panic

This particular strain of corona virus, cannot survive summer heat. Already in Singapore, the number of infections has fallen dramatically. This means, in northern countries which have well heated homes and public spaces, the possibility of infection will be almost non existent.  Italy is suffering higher rates than the rest of Europe because heating in private and public places is abysmal. Italians turn heat on for about 1 hour a day, or two at most. And most public buildings are not heated or only to about 60 degrees. So the true mortality rates in Italy will not occur in other nations.

Sixth reason not to panic

Nothing happens except God will it. Disease is a punishment for the sin of Adam and the sins of individuals. Confessing your sins and staying in God’s grace will give you real protection from an unprovided for death. And if God has sent this pathogen to punish sinners, then it makes sense to repent and stop being a sinner.

Seventh reason not to panic

Finally, if you want to put the Corona Virus scare into historical context, just read about the Spanish Fever of 1917 or the Black Death, to see that the corona virus is not a plague or a pandemic of any level of real threat. Nations, Churches, businesses and cities should not be shut down on its account. Corona virus is not going to cause any noticeably higher death rate. You won’t see your friends dropping off or more funerals than normal, as the national rates of death from other causes are 10 to 100 times higher, as can be seen from this report about mortality in Italy.

A Big Thanks to all the devotees of Bl. Emmerich!

IMG_20200312_075114

Today’s issue of the Italian Newspaper, La Verità, contains a Front Page advertisement for the perpetual novena to Our Lady of Santa Maria Maggiore, with an invitation for all to follow on Youtube, where they can find more information.

Many thanks to the Editors of La Verità who graciously permitted a religious advertisement in their newspaper, something which most newspapers in Italy do not tolerate, since they are controlled by political interests which are opposed to the Catholic Faith.

BUT THANKS MOST OF ALL to all those who participated in the Emmerich Appeal who made this possible.

Thanks also, and especially, to the volunteers of FromRome.Info who prepared the graphical layout and edited the Italian of the advertisement.

This advertisement will appear in 4 more editions of La Verità until March 25.

Italian Premier shuts down Italy completely as of today

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

A lawyer who never was elected to any office in the Italian Republic: Giuseppe Conte, the President of the Council of Ministers, or what in the English speaking world would be called the Prime Minister, has decided that for the safety of Italy, that everything in the country should be shut down as of today, March, 12, 2020, except for supermarkets, pharmacies, newspaper stands and public transport.

He announced his dictatorial decree on FaceBook of all things! So reports, Il Tempo, one of the major Italian Daily Newspapers online.

Here is a man whom one Italian told me is a true ignorante (ignoramus). Another called him an insensato, that is, someone who has lost all common sense.

The Corona virus 19, which is simply a new form of corona virus already known to mankind is not a lethal plague.  Attorney Christopher Ferrara explained it well in his article at The Remnant: it is a minor health issue blow up into mega proportions for the maximum political effect.

More people die each month from influenza than have ever died from Corona virus 19.

I suppose by the time I wake up, Giuseppe Conte will have next decreed that we should all stop breathing, so to guarantee that no one else gets infected!

If there is any doubt that some politicians are using Corona virus as an excuse to seize unheard of dictatorial powers that border on the divinity, Conte has just proven them right. Conte, has not repented, he is heading at full speed to a dark end, as I wrote of the other day. He does not have the basic competence to govern.

Let us pray the Lord Jesus, that He protect His people from this kind of maniac.
