No Government has the authority to shut down a nation

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

No government of men has the authority to shut down a nation. This is a common sense statement, which those too educated cannot understand. But I will try to explain it to them.

The state exists to serve the common good. The common good includes the whole of each individual, body and soul, being and action.

An influenza which will kill only 0.17% of the population is not a existential threat to a nation. And therefore it is not an existential threat to the common good. Therefore the common good remains more important. Therefore the Government must continue to serve the common good founded upon the rights of citizens to live and act freely.

If we start obeying insane political leaders we have opened pandora’s box. Germans decided to do that in 1932, and that lead to the deaths of 50 million human beings.

To entrust your mind, your soul and your obedience to an insane person is simply the penultimate step to suicide. To abandon reason itself is simply the choice to be insane.

Do not obey these idiots!

Keep your businesses open! Your schools open! Your factories open! Your stores open! Your restaurants open!

If you do get sick, stay at home. If you get very sick go to the hospital.

But the rest of us have the natural right to keep on living.

And no government of men can obstruct that right, because that right precedes the existence of the state, and comes from the Creator of Nature.

And those with a contrary opinion, are entitled to it, even though they are complete bozos.

Lenga & Oliveri were threatened to resign as Bishops

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

BREAKING — FromRome.Info has received testimony from an insider who confirms that 2 Catholic Bishops were forced to resign from their sees by threats of defamation and scandal. Here is our report.

Archbishop Lenga of Karaganda, Kazakhstan

Archbishop John Pawel Lenga, was appointed Bishop of Karaganda, Kazakstan by Pope John Paul II on July 7, 1999.  He had previously been the titular Bishop of Araba, since April 13, 1991, when he was named by the same Polish Pope as Apostolic Administrator of the region.  In merit of his faithful service, Pope John Paul II, on May 17, 2003 raised him to the personal dignity of an Archbishop.

But forces of the ecclesiastical mafia could not suffer that such a Catholic man be an Bishop. So they conspired to force his resignation in violation of canon 188, by insisting that he resign for reasons of health — when he was perfectly healthy — or else they would start a campaign of slander and calumny to destroy his reputation.  He was told to resign by Cardinal Marc Ouellet, Prefecct of the Congregation of Bishops, or else!

After talking with the other clergy of Kazakstan, Bishop Lenga to avoid the scandal to the Church accepted on Feb. 5, 2011, though under duress canon 188 would make his renunciation invalid in law.

He appealed to Pope Benedict XVI against his enemies by writing him a letter. He never received a response. It is strongly believed that the sole reason was that the personal secretary of Pope Benedict at the time, Father Gänswein, had intercepted the letter and made it disappear. Gänswein was exposed as an agent of the Lavender Mafia from the time Pope Benedict XVI was elected in several reports in the Italian Press in January of this year, notably through the personal testimony of Archbishop Viganò.

Bishop Mario Oliveri of Albenga-Imperia

Mons. Maro Oliveri was similarly coerced to resign. Hated by Cardinal Bertone, from the time that Bertone was Archbishop of Genoa, he was the target of a long campaign to get him removed from power.

Made bishop of the diocese of Albenga-Imperia, Italy, on the French border, in the foothills of the Maritime Alps, by Pope John Paul II, on Oct. 6, 1990, he served faithfully and with a good reputation from all but the local Freemasons for more than 25 years.

But called to Rome in the spring of 2016, he was told that his letter of resignation would be accepted in the fall of that year. He was amazed, saying that he has submitted no such letter of resignation. In response he was told that if he refused to resign a campaign of scandalous incriminations would be launched against him.

In fact, he local press that summer published information about the immoral behavior of priests of the diocese, whom the Bishop had attempted to correct without success. Our sources indicate that his dismissal was obtained by Cardinal Bertone from retirement as a last act of vendetta.

Conclusion

Here are two cases of Bishops being forced to resign by intimidations and threats. Two resignations which are arguably invalid in law, since canon 188 makes all renunciations of office invalid if they were obtained by the application of unjust coercion.

The motives alleged for the demands to resign were that these bishops were too catholic. The Lavender Mafia wanted them out.

If one still thinks that Pope Benedict XVI certain could not have been forced similarly to resign, there is nothing they can argue against these facts, according to the Latin adage:  contra factum non valet argumentum.

One of the suspected motives for forcing bishops to resign is simony: the scandalous trafficking in the sale of episcopal appointments by high members of the Italian Hierarchy, who sell their influence to get those who pay 200,000 euros or more for the favor. It is reported to FromRome.Info that Pope Benedict XVI disciplined at least one Italian Cardinal for this scandalous activity: an activity which, in general, in lending it self to the corrupt desire to increase profits, inclines to demanding the early retirement of bishops who can be plied by threats or incentives, to make the way open to the sale of offices. FromRome.Info, however, has no information that such a simonaical trade played any part in the forced resignations of Lenga or Olivieri.

Canon Lawyer at Rome says Priests must disregard orders to cancel public masses

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

I am never one to discount the truth said by someone who thinks Bergoglio is the pope. The cancellation of the mass has a lot of Catholic shocked to the core of their soul. And it is good to see a Canon Lawyer at Rome equally shocked, even if she disagrees with my commentary on her blog post on Papal Renunciations.

I speak of Cathy Caridi, JCL. Those letters after her name indicate she holds a licentiate in Canon Law. Her article is worth reading and sharing WITH ALL PRIESTS AND BISHOPS!

It is entitled, Do Bishops have the Authority to cancel Masses Completely? And she published it yesterday, here in Rome.

God bless her!

On the question of ordering priests not to allow the faithful to attend their masses she writes eloquently:

To sum up: if priests are being told in your country that “all public Masses must be cancelled, by order of the Bishops’ Conference,” this directive has no legal weight and should be disregarded, period.  There is no wiggle-room here.

But what’s a parish priest supposed to do, when his own diocesan bishop orders him to cancel Mass altogether, and bar parishioners from attending and receiving the sacraments?  Since, as we’ve already seen above, a bishop is required to do exactly the opposite, we undeniably have here an example of an unjust law.  “Because I said so” does not constitute justification for violating the law and the rights of the faithful.

I have said the same thing in other words, but having a Canon Lawyer at Rome say it, might convinced those who do not know how to see the truth stands on its own feet.

Cathy Caridi will be famous in history for having been the canonist who foretold a month before Feb. 11, 2013, that a papal renunciation could be invalid on account of a substantial error. I reviewed her article last month.

Palestrina: Tu es Petrus!

As we continue our perusal of the sacred repertoire of  Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina, the greatest Italian composer of the 16th century, we sample his Tu est Petrus, a musical composition for the Feast of Saint Peter the Apostle.

This performance is  by the Tallis Scholars, with Peter Philips conducting.

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.

 

Bergamo propaganda now seen as essential to the Corona hype

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Let us pray for the dead, regardless from what they have died. But let us pray for world leaders that they do not exploit the dead for political agendas.

Take Bergamo for instance.

In recent days the international press has run stories about this Italian City as ground zero for the Wuhan Virus pandemic. They want desperately that all panic and accept their narrative about the apocalyptic plague which is decimating this city.

First, we cannot dismiss or diminish the death of any person let alone of large numbers of them. But, second, we ought not manipulate statistics to make a flu seem like a plague.

Bergamo is a city of around 120,000 souls. It is also the chief city in the province of Brescia, which has 1.2 million souls. There are many hospitals in the province, but Bergamo has the principal ones. Not all who are patients at Bergamo are citizens from the city.

As being reported, the Mayor of Bergamo says the total deaths of citizens of the city since the outbreak of the Corona Virus is 108 more than normal. He is using 2019, in which the deaths were 56 in the same period, as the basis. But he admits that only 30 some, of all the dead were known victims of the Wuhan virus.

However, the press wants you to think that everyone is dying in the city, and that everyone is dying of coronavirus. The Ecco of Bergamo is sounding this kind of alarm.

So let’s look at statistics, because as statisticians say, statistics never lie, but liars use statistics.

According to the Italian national census of 2011, the mortality rate in the province of Brescia is 92.99 per 10,000 (Source: Istat). With a population of 1.264 million the total mortality annually should be 11,754, or 980 per month.

The city of Brescia, also in the province of Brescia, has about 80% of the quantity of infected as Bergamo, so we can extrapolate that the total Corona virus deaths in the province so far is 54. The infection was brought to the region on January 24th.

During that time, therefore, in the province of Bergamo there would be expected a total mortality of 1,970 souls. But total deaths from Corona Virus are 54!

Bergamo has 20.7% of the known Corona virus infections in the region of Lombardy, so it is the principle infected city, but by no means the sole city affected.

These statistics show that some people are dying from the Wuhan Virus, and mostly at Bergamo and Brescia. But the total deaths there are only 1/40th of the total expected deaths in that province in the same time period!

These statistics are even more doubtful, because the winter flue this year in Italy was virulent. I know, I came down with it in January. I was sick in bed for 10 days. And had to stay at home for 10 more days to recover my strength. I know to avoid milk products during a flu to avoid mucus build up in the lungs, but with such a complete abstinence I was still coughing up a tremendous quantity of the thickest mucus I have ever seen. I had to take special over the counter expectorant to prevent its production, but it still formed in amazing quantities. For those not intelligent enough to ask for the special kind of medicine used in the USA and who were not abstaining from milk and cheese, this years influence would certainly be highly risky, even mortal, for some.

Therefore, the claim that hospitals cannot cope with the medical cases, therefore, if true, says more about the failure of a socialized medical system to have adequate facilities, than it does about the virulence of the Wuhan Virus.

Is Corona Virus a medical threat to some persons. Yes, undoubtedly. But is it a threat significant enough to shut down a nation of 65 million and confine them to their homes?

The statistics do not support an affirmative response to that question.

Indeed, since Italian death statistics show that HIV patients have a 700% higher likelihood of dying by infectious diseases, the insistence of Ministry of Health to not release the stats regarding how many victims of Corona virus are HIV positive is troubling and disingenuous, since everyone has a right to know who is succumbing to the Wuhan Virus.

In Italy, Civil Disobedience is growing

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Since Thursday, the news that only 0.2% of those who died as victims of Corona Virus are under 50 years of age, and only 0.8% do not have serious pathologies, is having its effect: civil disobedience.

More and more Italians are not buying the hype.

And they have strong cultural reasons to do so.  Their homes are small without much space for common living. They are designed to be places to sleep and eat. Period. And Italians love to socialize. Individualism is not in their vocabulary.

There are also climatic reasons. Since Thursday there have been some lovely, sunny warm days with temperatures, here at Rome, reaching to 72 degrees at noon.

The traffic on the streets was 50% greater on Friday than in past days. And last night there were Italians socializing outside until well past midnight.

As this civil disobedience grows, the government will become increasingly isolated politically. They will either have to admit they were wrong to shut down the country, and relent on the #StayAtHome Decree or they will have to impose further draconian penalties.

Pray for the Italian people. For since Italy is the hardest hit with the Wuhan Virus, right now, according to published reports, if the Italian people succeed in bucking the hype and breaking free of the Orwellian social controls which have be imposed on many nations, in virtue of stemming the fake plague, it will be mean the ultimate liberty for all of humanity. For then all can argue, if Italians do not believe the hype, why should we.

The counter-revolution has begun! Deus vult!

Now is the time to have Archangels on your side

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

As Scripture recounts, there comes a time when the sins of mankind are just so great that God’s silence and merciful patience come to an end and He lets lose punishment.

God being of Infinite Power, His Punishments can be most terrible.

God being the Author of Nature can command the forces of the natural world to do things which are uncommon, unusually, apocalyptic and above all inescapable.

But there are some trials and punishments which can be avoided, even if God has decreed them for entire cities, peoples, nations etc..

We see this in the response to the prayer of Abraham, who being shown the destruction of the cities of the plain, asked God to show mercy. And that God in His Mercy sent 2 Angels to rescue Lot.

Who are those 2 Angels of Mercy?

We know from the Fathers of the Church that the three Angels who visited Abraham were the Holy Archangels, Michael, Gabriel and Raphael.

As an aside, I hope you never saw the blasphemous movies and TV shows which denigrated these Holy Angels and made it appear that they were selfish, jealous or evil, like thet godless blasphemers who wrote these scripts are.

These Archangels, on the other hand, in truth and reality are most Noble, most Good, Most Zealous, and Most Faithful, and most determined to lead us to Heaven where we and they can rejoice in the true God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, for ever and ever.

To discern who those 2 Angels were, is important, because in times of great woe, we too need to turn to the Holy Angels to recuse ourselves and our families from the great punishments of God which descend upon the whole land round about us. And if we are faithful Catholics, we can ask this help, because God does not wish to punish everyone.  But since this is a special grace, which we cannot merit without asking, we need to ask for it and know whom to ask.

To give you an example. A friend of mine told me recently that he has fallen 3 times in the last year and hurt his foot, leg and knee.  He asked me why, as a faithful Catholic, is this happening to him. I told him I am not a doctor, but I asked him if he had a devotion to Saint Raphael the Archangel. He said he did not. He only was very devoted to Saint Gabriel. Oh, I said, that explains it! Saint Raphael is the patron of travelers, and if you are having problems as you walk, your lack of devotion to Saint Raphael is undoubtedly the reason. I mean what I say, because I know it is true.

When my dear and beloved mom, was in her last year of life, she began to lose her balance and lose her fear of falling. She would wander the house at night-time and sometimes she would fall down. I was very concerned and so I started praying to Saint Raphael for her.  From then on, she never fell, except on one occasion and was miraculously protected. She had wanted to go to daily mass, and after helping her out of the car onto the sidewalk, I returned to shut the doors of the car. And she fell right down on the hard concrete, with a boom. I was shocked and dismayed. So I helped her up and asked if she had hurt herself, and she said no. So I steadied her and continued to close the doors of the car. And she fell again. Boom. I was terrified. I helped her up and asked her again if she had hurt herself. She said no. In subsequent days we checked her carefully and she did not even have a bruise! Saint Raphael had come to her aid.

Saint Raphael is the most famous of all the Archangels in the Bible. He has an entire Inspired book of scripture about him. It is called the Book of Tobias, and you can find it in the Vulgate version of the Bible. Do not read the book of tobit which is a mutilated copy of Tobias to which superstitions of  pre-Christian Jews has been added. The Book of Tobias was redacted by Saint Jerome and is one of the books most cited by Our Lord in His preaching.

Saint Raphael is the special patron of travelers and of the sick. Everyone should have a devotion to him, for both reasons. Tobias tells us that this Holy Archangel is one of the seven Seraphim who stands before the Throne of God in Heaven. For these reasons, I hold that one of the two Angels sent to Lot is Saint Raphael, since they were sent on mission, to rescue Lot and his family from an impending apocalyptic destruction, which required great knowledge and power to fulfill.

The other Holy Archangel, who is undoubtedly a Seraphim, and whom Scripture tells us is probably one of the two Angels send to rescue Lot, is Saint Michael. Saint Michael is the Angel of the Lord, according to the Saints. His job was to meet out destruction to armies and nations, and to lead the Chosen People out of Egypt, across the Red Sea and to the promised land. He brought forth water from the rock at the command of Moses, he guarded by a column of smoke, so that the enemies of God could not see His people. He led God’s people by a column of fire at night, so that they could see their way in a dark land.

The Saints say Saint Michael is responsible for miraculous springs of water and he has ever been invoked at springs to cleanse them from impurities. He is also the Angel which strikes wicked men and cities and lands with plague, as we read of in Scripture, under his title as, The Angel of the Lord, and in history, as happened here at Rome in the reign of Pope Gregory the Great.

So for all these reasons, I believe that Saint Michael is the other Angel of Mercy.

If you want protection in this time of universal madness, you can do no better than having a devotion with these two Great Archangels. And you can do so, by first asking them pardon, humbly, for lacking in devotion to them, resolving to have devotion from now on and for the rest of your life, and by saying some approved prayers to them on a regular basis. Finally, entrust yourself and your family’s protection to them.

But none of this  will obtain their friendship if you do not first confess all your sins and resolve to be faithful to God, because the stain of sin on the soul is like the smell of shit in the pants of someone standing hear you. It makes you repulsive to the Angels of God and difficult for them to endure hearing your requests. So get yourself to confession!

I hope now you can recognize the False Apostles in social media

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

As Catholics, by the grace and mercy of God alone, we were sanctified and justified in Baptism and made adopted sons of the Eternal Father in Christ Jesus, His Eternal Son, by the Divine Power of Their Holy Spirit.

This gives us an exalted hope, to be heirs with Jesus Christ in the Kingdom of Heaven. And we were put in this world to test us, to see if we have the spirit of cooperation with God to merit such an eternal reward.

For this, we need discernment. A Discernment which is first and foremost the instrument we use to make decisions to do and not to do something which we have not yet done or need to do, or which we have done and need to stop.

I write today to encourage you to use your discernment and pray to the Holy Spirit to have this grace. And I ask you to do this in regard to discerning who are the true servants of God and who are the false apostles.

The closing of Dioceses and the abandonment of the divine ministry of the priesthood by tens of thousands of clergy, is a horror which we could never have contemplated to occur in our life times. It is apocalyptic without any exaggeration. All sane and rational and faithful Catholics can see this.

But there are some Catholic Media outlets which you perhaps have financially supported in the past, which are saying that this is a good thing and that you have to accept it, and are even suggesting that it is a virtue to accept it.

I am Catholic and I know that it is a mortal sin to condone or approve of the sin of another. And a sin this great must be publicly vituperated, not condoned nor excused.

The False Apostles say otherwise.

So, I ask you to stop supporting them financially, since they are literally your spiritual enemies. They do not care that you and your families are deprived of spiritual grace and the sacraments of salvation. They rejoice that now their podcasts can rule the Church and that they can replace the clergy!

Authentic Catholic Media thinks the opposite. More than ever we need to support faithful clergy and work to convince confused clergy to repent. We need to promote priestly vocations who oppose this madness and only those religious and priestly societies who oppose it and refuse to buckle under. Such groups and such Media are true Catholics.

So I ask you to use your discernment and make a life changing decision. Now that you can have a clear and unmistakable criterion of which are the faithful Media outlets and which are those led by False Apostles, whether clergy or laymen.

If you like FromRome.Info, then please take a moment to let me explain to you an idea I have for Catholics to support and defend one another in the coming years ahead.

As you know, there are quite a number of inimical forces which are arrayed against Holy Mother Church, both from without and from within. Alas, the Popes in recent centuries have done little or nothing to organize the faithful against these forces, and so now that they have taken over the Vatican we are leaderless. And now that they have convinced and are convincing our Bishop to shut down the Catholic Church, we are bereft!

Last year, foreseeing the need for Catholic to organize to help one another, as president of Ordo Militaris Inc., a private security and defense corporation in Montana, I formulated a plan for Catholic businessmen and professionals to assist in these goals.

As you are well aware of, there are many business alliances which certify quality, professionality, products and services. There are also alliances of producers, distributors, and points of sale. Furthermore, there are alliances of businesses in different industries and sectors for special promotions.

Alliances among like minded individuals is something natural and innate to human society. It is also good business. As Catholics we should understand that, since the very nature of Our Faith is founded upon an Alliance of God with man, and of the Saints with sinners.

So why cannot Catholics have such an alliance? Such an alliance would help each defend and support one another? Such an alliance would be faith motivated, but economic. It would not be socialist, but capitalist. That is, it does not involve redistribution of goods, but is founded upon the virtues of the work ethic which the Saints teach us and which Christ consecrated by His own profession, as Man, in the carpentry business of Saint Joseph.

I call this Alliance the Cross Azure Alliance.

Any business of any kind, or anyone running a business in his own name could join. From cafes to legal offices, restaurants to gasoline stations, from tailors to carpentry shops, from fishermen to farmers, etc..

Members would display our Cross Azure in their places of business. And the Alliance would publish a directory of all the members round the world, in each nation, in each province or state, and in each city, so that each member business would know who are the friendlies.

Member businesses would support the Catholic Religion and ally together to defend one another’s civil rights. And of course, each member business would give an advantageous discount to other members of the Alliance and special considerations on service.

This Alliance would be a way to baptize capitalism and tame the wild forces of the market, so that together we work to build up the body of Christ from the ground up while helping Catholic families and workers defend and promote the economic activity that they need to support themselves.

The alliance would start with individuals and small businesses and work to establish service companies in credit and finance and insurance and security which would serve the members. The Alliance would not be a holding company but a membership organization. Together members would belong to a mutual assistance association which would be geared to supporting Catholic businesses.

The Alliance would foster as its work of charity the promotion of the Ordo Miltiaris Catholicus, for the humanitarian aid of Catholics who are persecuted for the faith. And as such, in all these ways, would be a force against the enemies of the Church and a powerful base for the restoration of the Catholic Faith in each part of the world were it spreads.
