THESE PRAYERS ARE SAID EACH MIDNIGHT
IN FRONT OF THE BASILICA OF SANTA MARIA MAGGIORE AT ROME

This devotion is inspired by the request made by Our Lady Herself in
Bl. Anne Catherine Emmerich’s Vision of

August 25, 1822: “I know not now how I went to Rome last night, but I found myself near the church of Santa Maria Maggiore. Around it I saw crowds of poor, pious souls, in great distress and anxiety on account of the Pope’s disappearance and the agitation and alarming reports throughout the city. Led by one common impulse, they had come to invoke the Mother of God. They did not expect to find the church open, they intended only to pray outside. But I was inside, I opened the door and they entered, astounded at the door’s opening of itself. I was standing aloof where they could not see me. There was no service, only the chancel-lamps were burning, and the people knelt in quiet prayer. Then the Mother of God appeared. She said that great tribulations were at hand; that the people must pray earnestly with extended arms, if only for the length of three Our Fathers, for it was thus that her Son had prayed for them upon the Cross; that they should rise at midnight to pray thus; that they should continue to come to Her church which they would always find open; and that they should, above all, pray for the extirpation of the Church of Darkness. … I know not whether the people saw the apparition or not, but they must have been impressed by something supernatural for, when the Blessed Virgin said they should pray to God with arms extended, all lifted up their arms … It seemed to be an association of prayer.” From this time Sister Emmerich assisted nightly at the pious exercises at Santa Maria Maggiore.

Avv. Edoardo Polacco: Wednesday at Noon, 1,000s of Italians to present Legal Action against the Government

Against the Egregious Violation of the Constitutional Rights of the entire Nation

by the government of Giuseppe Conte

An English summary of this legal complaint

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

The legal complaint or Querela is a petition to the local Procurator or District Attorney, to begin a criminal investigation of the Italian Prime Minister, Giuseppe Conte — whose title is actually the President of the Council of Ministers.

The criminal complaint is written by Attorney Edoardo Polacco, who is an expert in Constitutional Law in the Italian Republic, and who resides here at Rome.

Attorney Polacco is distributing copies of the complaint in PDF so that Italian citizens all over Italy can present a copy of the complaint to the local prosecutor of their city, and ask that the same investigation be opened.

I, the author of this summary, Br. Bugnolo, will be signing a copy and presenting it also on Wednesday. I will attempt to interview Attorney Polacco live when he presents his copy at the Parioli Station of the Italian Carabinieri here at Rome, on Wednesday at 11 A.M.

The complaint charges the Prime Minister with the following crimes:

1. For the Violation of article 283 of the Italian Penal Code, the charge being “Attacking the Constitution of the Italian Republic”.

Article 283 reads:

Chiunque, con atti violenti, commette un fatto diretto e idoneo a mutare la Costituzione dello Stato o la forma di Governo, è punito con la reclusione non inferiore a cinque anni.

Which in English, would be:

Whoever, with violent acts, commits a deed directed and suitable to change the Constitution of the State or the form of its Government, is to be punished with imprisonment for no less than 5 years.

The charge is moved by Attorney Polacco on the grounds that without proper due form of law, parliamentary approval and authority, Giuseppe Conte and his government has attempted to act in direct violation of no less than six articles of the Italian constitution:

  • Article 13 which guarantees as inviolable the personal liberty of each citizen.
  • Article 16, which guarantees to each citizen the right to travel and dwell freely in any part of the territory of the Republic.
  • Article 19, which guarantees to each citizen the right to practice publicly or privately his own religion.
  • Article 20, which guarantees that each institution of the Church is exempt from being subjected to any law which specifically and uniquely targets it.
  • Article 25, which guarantees for each citizen due process of the law, and forbids expressly that any citizen be punished by any non-legislative measure.
  • Article 33, which requires that all students be promoted only on the basis of passing a standardized test.

2. For the violation of Article 323 of the Italian Penal Code, the charge being “Abuse of office”

This charge is moved on the basis that the Prime Minister by decree attempted to institute criminal penalties without seeking legislative approval by the Italian Parliament

3. For the violation of Article 610 of the Italian Penal Code, the charge being “Violence against Citizens”

This charge is moved on the basis that the Prime Minister ordered the various Italian police authorities to stop, arrest, seize, hunt, imprison and fine citizens without any constitutional authority for the violation of a measure which was not sanctioned by the law.

FromRome.Info Video will attempt to film the presentation of the Querela at the Procurator here at Rome, by Attorney Polacco at 11 AM on Wednesday. Look for notices for the live broadcast on Wednesday morning, here at RomeRome.Info.

 

St. Joseph Foundation: The Decision to shut down parishes is contrary to the Gospel & Canon Law

THIS ARTICLE PRESUPPOSES THAT THE PANDEMIC IS REAL, WHICH IT IS NOT

But even if it were, the way the Bishops have closed Churches
is completely contrary to the Gospel:
Anti-Pope, Anti-Church, Anti-Bishops, Anti-Gospel, Anti-Parishes

Pastoral Remedies in Time of the Corona Panic

An excerpt of the Original at Saint Joseph’s Foundation’s website, here in PDF.

By Philip C. L. Gray, JCL

Questions Answered

I turn now to apply the principles noted above and answer some of the questions we have received.

1. Does a diocesan bishop have the authority to cancel “non-essential” activities in a parish, such as Stations of the Cross, CCD, bible studies, etc.?

Generally speaking, no. A pastor is the administrator of his parish. Under jurisprudence, it is the pastor, not the bishop, who can set Mass schedules. I have won and lost cases because of that jurisprudence. That being true, it would be the pastor, not the bishop, who is entrusted with making decisions about what is essential and what is not. He should do so with guidelines from the bishop, but not prohibitions. This is the principle of subsidiarity at work. The pastor should also prudently weigh the circumstances, risks and benefits associated with his decision.

2. What are the canonical issues involved with a bishop shuttering churches and suspending all public Masses?

For a bishop to do this, he must issue a decree that is motivated in fact and specific to the circumstances he is addressing. The decree must be properly promulgated and thereby actionable; that is, open to challenge. More at issue is that the faithful have a Divine Law right to the sacraments. Personally, I do not believe such a directive is legitimate but the circumstances for appeal would be too burdensome and probably not resolved until after the pandemic has passed. For this reason, the Faithful are encouraged to find other, more favorable ways to obtain the sacraments while also petitioning their bishop to provide the sacraments. The Faithful should also use acceptable means to persuade a bishop to allow public Masses with prudent measures implemented.

3. What canonical arguments exist in favor of a pastor continuing to celebrate the sacraments for his people?

See #2 above. The vocation of a pastor is to minister to the spiritual needs of his people out of the Word of God and the Sacraments. Just as a parent’s obligations to children are not suspended when a crisis occurs, neither is a pastor’s. The Faithful have a right to receive the sacraments, and this places an obligation on a priest to provide them. In danger of death, the obligation to provide is extended to those priests who no longer have ordinary faculties.

4. Can a person be required to receive Holy Communion in the hand during the Coronavirus?

No, not legitimately. This will be disputed, and the person refused Holy Communion will likely not see a decision in their case until after the crisis is past. A greater concern is that such refusal will become normative. If a person is refused Holy Communion on the tongue, that person will be faced with a hard decision to appeal or not. The SJF is ready to assist anyone in making that discernment.

5. What is necessary to confect the Eucharist, as opposed to what may be in the rubrics or a part of custom?

As per any sacrament, to confect the Eucharist requires valid matter, form, and intention. For the Eucharist, valid matter is unleavened bread (in the Latin Church and most Eastern Catholic Churches) and pure grape wine. The form is the words, “This is My Body” and “This is My Blood” said at the appropriate time. The priest must intend to confect the Eucharist. The “breathing” on the species during consecration is a beautiful custom but is not obligatory. Consequently, a priest who wears a mask during the celebration of Mass, or distributes Holy Communion with gloves, or uses other precautions that do not affect the matter, form or intention, do not harm the validity of the Mass. Such precautions should be taken in collaboration with the bishop.

6. Can a priest use soap or hand sanitizer during the purification of his hands during Mass?

The rubrics call for water. Adding lemon juice or even isopropyl alcohol to the water as a disinfectant would not, in my opinion, affect the liceity of the act. Doing so would be far less offensive to the rubrics than wearing gloves to distribute Holy Communion, which itself could be reasonable during this crisis.

7. Can extraordinary ministers be used in lieu of the presiding priest so the priest can remain socially distant and lessen the risk of being exposed to the virus? Can extraordinary ministers self-communicate for the same reasons?

Yes to both. These measures should be taken in collaboration with the bishop, but if such collaboration is not possible, a presiding priest can make those decisions in extraordinary circumstances. None of those examples affect the validity of the Sacrament.

8. Should a priest disobey his bishop if his bishop orders that all public sacraments are to cease?

This is a tricky question for some and easy for others. The answer should not be taken lightly. A priest vows obedience to his bishop, so the question behind the question is, “What is the obedience he vowed?” As a virtue, obedience flows from Justice. It is giving to authority what is due that authority. As Christians, all of us must be obedient to lawful authority. It’s part of what we believe. On the other hand, all authority has limits, and the first limits that must be respected are the limits imposed by Faith and Morals. When that authority acts in a manner contrary to Faith or Morals, we have no obligation to obey. He may have the power to act, but such acts are illegitimate insofar as they violate Divine Law, either Positive or Natural. The right of the Faithful to receive the sacraments is a matter of Divine Law. Whether providing them at a particular time is appropriate or not is something the minister of that sacrament must determine at that time. If a bishop prohibits the public exercise of sacraments during this crisis, and a priest has concerns, the priest should prayerfully consider the circumstances of the prohibition as they relate to him and the people under his care. He must consider the norm of Canon 18 and other applicable laws, what faculties the Church provides, what opportunities for grace exist for the people, and what his options are. He should express his concerns to his bishop, even asking the bishop to reconsider if necessary. If he chooses not to obey the directive, he must be certain in his conscience that he is being obedient to God. Put another way, a priest should always obey a legitimate directive from his bishop.

The Medical Masque and how to make slaves love their servitude

A documentary which shows that that the mandatory wearing of medical masks without any scientific justification is a step in the Rosicrucian Alchemical objectives of initiating humanity into a religion based on falsehood: the wearing of the mask as the sign of submission and participation in this Anti-Christic religion. This explains why you are being refused to buy or sell without one, just like the Mark of the Beast in the Apocalypse.

Conte’s Government passes law to starve Political Dissidents to death

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

The new law, entitled, “Cura Italia” — that is, “Cure Italy!” — is a vicious piece of psychotic psychopathy which violates numerous points of constitutional law in Italy.

It continues to deny the right of Catholics to worship, except at funerals of 15 persons or less.

It continues to prevent most services from operating (Bars & barbershops etc.).

But worse of all, it requires that all accept that there is a Pandemic which is an existential threat to Italy. The mandatory sign of this political position is the wearing of a face mask which cannot stop viral infection!

Those who fail to do so will be fined.

But worse of all, those who fail to wear a mask cannot enter any store to purchase anything. Thus they cannot buy food or medicine.

Only a radical Marxist government can mean by “Cure Italy!”, the de facto starvation to death of all political dissidents.

This is the Italy in communion with Bergoglio.

I for one will never live a lie. I will not wear a mask. They can drag me to prison or execute me. But I will live as a Catholic in the real world. I refuse to live in the psychosis of Giuseppe Conte. I refuse to submit to his psychopathic regime!

I am a Roman Catholic! I have a divine right to liberty and truth.

Christ won that right for me on Calvary and gave it to me when He Rose from the Dead.

I repeat what I said two weeks ago:

In Italy, the medical mask has become the Mark of the Beast. If you do not live the lie, you cannot buy or sell, just as Saint John foretold in the Apocalypse. Conte knows what he is doing. He is a Satanist.

Oh, and up until the day the new Law was passed in Parliament, none of the parliamentarians of the government wore masks in the small crowded chambers of the Lower House. When called out on their hypocrisy, they all began wearing them on April. 24. These people know that there is no medical pandemic.
