COVID-19 & the Poverty and Neglect of the Elderly

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

One of the saddest realities of the Coronavirus is that it afflicts the elderly most of all.

In modern times, the elderly have pretty much been seen as a group to attack and exploit: attack, inasmuch as their ability to be a collective memory of an age before modern errors were as viciously predatory as they are, and exploited for their votes to propose a slower down spiral to the brave new world of socialist tyranny.

But for the most part the elderly are neglected. Part of the reason is the continual Marxist propaganda though mass media (TV and Movies) which focuses on a youth culture and ignores the elderly as if they do not exist or as persons who are only worthy of interest when they are ridiculously portrayed. Part of the reason is the excessive hands off policies of modern nations which have allowed work to be divorced from family live, and thus have deprived elderly parents of the company and care of their children, who are forced to work, increasingly, far from home.

But no sooner as the Corona Stunt began, all of a sudden the whole world should stop for the elderly to prevent their death by coronavirus. As soon as I began to hear this propaganda, I realized it was totally dishonest, because no one in the State nor Church nor Media has given one bit of concern to the elderly for 70 years.

The real reasons why so many elderly die of the influenza is because they live in poverty and neglect. This is especially true in Italy, where the majority of elderly live alone in their ancestral villages, without any support or assistance of children and grand children, who had to seek work and careers abroad or in distant cities.

This is further exacerbated by the abysmal discrimination of the Italian welfare system against the aged. In Italy only those receive pensions who have worked at a salaried job for all their lives. But most of today’s elderly never had that kind of economic opportunity. For the last two decades, in fact, there have been complaints from the elderly across Italy, that they have to forgo eating to afford their medicine or to pay their rent. They are even made to pay income taxes on the little income they have if it is less than 10 thousand euros!

Indeed, there are some entire cities, such as Caltabellota, in Sicily, which are more than 65% populated by the elderly and where the average citizen lives on less than 12,000 dollars a year!

It is not surprising then, that the elderly are the predominate victims of Coronavirus, because they lack proper nutrition and have no one to look out for them. Many of them are obviously turning to medical care much too late to be helped through the infectious stages of Coronavirus.

When I look at the long lines outside in the winter cold, in front of each supermarket on a daily basis — because the Decrees for Health Safety for the Corona Pandemic require no more than so many persons in a supermarket at any one time — I cringe at heart, knowing that such exposure to the elderly is the worse thing they need during an epidemic. They are given, moreover, no priority in line.

The ultimate cruelty, is that when they do fall sick to Coronavirus, and go to a hospital, that in the hospital they are denied all human consolation and solace by their loved ones and are forced to die without their family around them, without the Sacraments, and even without a public funeral.

Worse still is that in many western countries, now, there is a move to euthanize corona patients who are very old. It is called Pallative Care, and in the USA they hare setting up such teams at each hospital to ensure death without any oversight or intervention by relatives.

The Corona Control caused many caregivers for the elderly in Italy to abandon their patrons and return to their home countries in Eastern Europe. This resulted in thousands of elderly being left alone, falling into very poor conditions and being rushed to hospital, where they were infected with coronavirus and neglected unto death. Read the stunning report here, under the update for April 1, Italy. If this is true, a large percentage of the 12,000 victims of Coronavirus in Italy will fall squarely on the shoulders of Giuseppe Conte and the ruling government.

So the next time you hear your daily Main Stream Median shout that the elderly will be massacred by this virus, understand it as pure bluster. The Corona Control being imposed is the worse thing for the elderly and will enable them to be killed off in silence.

The deaths of the elderly are a political necessity for Globalists and Marxists, because both want to remove the foundations of morality and destroy the collective knowledge of the past, so that they can establish their dictatorship of the globalist elite.

I have my doubts … about the Corona panic

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Now that the Marxists have us right where they have always dreamed, in their wildest of dreams, to have us, I have my doubts that they will ever let us go.

I am speaking about the shutting down and locking of all Catholic Churches and the house to house detention which is now enforce in Italy.

We are deprived of all meaningful human interaction with every other person or neighbor, friend or relative. We are forced to get all our information through the internet or TV, media which are highly controlled or filtered or capable of being such.

Seeing that lefties have no interior life, no morals, no ethics and no scruples, what motive would they ever have in giving us back the liberties which we were using to oppose them?

I do not want to be alarmist, but I have my doubts.

No one ever gave the Italian Prime Minister any authority to impose martial law on the nation. He is not even the President of Italy, who alone has this power according to the constitution.

And the Prime Minister certainly does not have the right to suspend the Constitutional rights of the citizens regardless of what calamity befalls Italy.

So I have my doubts, and as this sort of raw and vicious grab for power spreads round the world, making us all like denizens of the Maoist Tyranny of China, I think you should cultivate some doubt too.

What the movie, Admiral, can teach us about the current crisis in the Church

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

In 2008, in Russia, there premiered the move, Admiral (Russian title: Адмиралъ – See official trailer below). The movie is worth watching in whatever language you can find a copy because of the important lessons it teaches about national psychology during a revolution in an absolute monarchy.

The movie is set in Russia, in the years before and during the Russian Revolution. And its antagonist is the famous Russian Admiral, who would become the leader of the White Russians — the anti-Bolshevik forces: Admiral Kolchak.

It starred Konstantin Khabenskiy as the Admiral, and Elizaveta Boyarskaya as Anna Timiryova, the poet.

Here is the official trailer:

Here is the English trailer, distributed by 20th Century Fox:

The movie recounts the sad tragedy of the overthrow of the Russian Empire by a devious, vicious and anti-Christian conspiracy of Jewish Marxists, led by Vladimir Lenin, who himself was a jew.

The English trailer was released in another version also:

Why I recommend the film

When nations are overthrown from within by political conspiracies, one can observe how different persons and organizations in that society react to the threat and respond, and from this see why different groups respond differently. This kind of study might be called national social psychology: how the actions of sections of society cause other sections of society to react and alter their behavior.

The Russian Revolution was without doubt the greatest tragedy to befall a Christian people in the history of Christendom. It resulted in the death of 60 to 90 million Christians, and those guilty for this mass genocide were never punished, tried or faulted by the international community  or the Main Stream Press. Their race and politics had everything to do with the pass they got.

But why I recommend the film to the readers of FromRome.Info, is that it shows why groups like Trad Inc are acting they way they do.

Let me explain why:

Absolute Monarchies have only 1 principle of loyalty

Imperial Russia was a lot like the Catholic Church. It was an absolute monarchy where nothing functioned without the nod or order of the Tsar.  Everything everyone wanted to do had to encounter this reality on a daily level. There were imperial decrees about this and that. And if you wanted to serve in the Russian Empire in any official position, your loyalty to the Tsar was the first criterion of character which got you promoted.

But once the revolution broke out and the Tsar was captured and then executed, Russians no longer knew what to do. They did not love Russia as Russia. They loved the Tsar. Without the Tsar they had to act on personal initiative and they were not habituated to acting like that.

In a Vacuum, existing ambitions rule the day

And so when the central authority broke down, it was every man for himself. But each Russian, who had loved the Tsar, had to now find a new motivation for his actions. And what prevailed was the pre-existing secondary motives each had: whether it was pure ambition for power, wealth, prestige, safety, prosperity etc..

Those who sought safety, fled Russia, most never to return. They abandoned Mother Russia because they had no love for Russia as Russia. They loved themselves more.

Those who sought prosperity did whatever was necessary to make money, regardless of which side was in power in their local area. They did not fight to save Russia from the Bolsheviks, because they did not love Mother Russia, they loved money.

Those who sought power seized power and fought to keep power, regardless of which side they found it on. They did not fight to save Russia from the Bolsheviks unless that meant power for themselves. And as soon as they saw that it no longer meant that, they changed sides or fled Russia. They did not love Mother Russia, they loved power.

And finally, there was those who like Admirak Kolchak who loved both the Tsar and Mother Russia.

In this movie, you see his tragic and heroic fight to save Russia from the Christ-hating Marxists. He never seeks power and is surprised when the Tsar gives him power. He relinquishes power to save his men, when power is not longer real power. He reluctantly becomes the head of the White Russians and does what is necessary to suppress the foreign funded takeover of Russia (the Bolsheviks were funded by Wall Street, it is alleged, Jewish interests).

In the end, Admiral Kolchak is betrayed by the Czechoslovakia Brigade, which began fighting against the Marxists in the Ukraine, but when they needed money and a way out of Russia cut a secret deal with the Reds to escape through the Pacific port of Vladivostok. They were not Russians and so had no love for Russia.

The Bergoglian Revolution of 2013

We are currently in the Catholic Church’s Bolshevik Revolution. Bergoglio was put in power illegally in 2013 by foreign interests: Obama and Peking and Freemasonry and George Soros (a Nazi and a Jew).

With Pope Benedict XVI effectively isolated or imprisoned, which ever you prefer, there is now no central authority in the Church. Each is free to take the course his own motives suggest.

There are those who want to keep their pensions and salaries. For them Bergoglio is their pope. There are those who want to keep getting the funding they are getting from Soros organizations, for them there is no doubt that Bergoglio is the Pope.

There are those who are ambitious, and think they can achieve their goals by prancing in front of Catholics as their savior or hero but still insist on serving Bergoglio as pope, because they have some sort of explicit or tacit agreement with him, to get a promotion.

And then there are simply Catholics who love the Church for the sake of God and had no ambition for power, money, prestige or acclaim before the revolution broke out. They are the ones who are fighting for Holy Mother Church. They are the only ones willing to lose and risk everything for God.

Which side are you on?

I am my house shall chose the Lord…. Joshua 24:15.

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.

Francis is Presenting Mercy as a justification for breaking the law of Christ

There is an excellent, and detailed analysis, of the Pope’s Sunday Homily to the College of Cardinals, by Megaera Erinyes at the Remnant, which begins thus:

Papal Signaling: Pope Francis and the False Dichotomy

A Thumbs-Up for Cardinal Dolan
A Thumbs-Up for Cardinal Dolan, expresses the levity of the current Pontificate

Pope Francis’ homily for the latest consistory of cardinals meeting in Rome this week is being called a re-statement of his programme for his pontificate. Fr. Thomas Rosica, his English language spokesman, wrote on Twitter: “More than anything I’ve heard from (the pope) today’s homily is his mission statement.”

Let us assume for a moment that the pope knows the implications of what he is saying, and that the people closest to him are telling the truth when they say, repeatedly, that the things that are happening are happening at his behest, and examine what this “mission statement” has to say to the Church.

Francis is clearly signaling, again, his intentions for the Synod and the future envisioned at it by the Kasper faction. The question of Communion for the divorced and remarried is never named, but the terms describing the issue are unmistakable. And they are wholly on the side of the Kasperites, adhering without an iota of divergence from the basic presumption in Kasper’s proposal: that the law of God must be overturned or ignored for the sake of extending the mercy of God. A contradiction that is totally incompatible with all of Catholic theology, with logic and natural reason.

What I hope to offer here is not a detailed theological analysis, but merely a point-by-point clarification, given the context of what the pope means. It can only be described as a volley in an ideological war currently being waged at the highest levels for supremacy in the Church. I will go through the text of the consistory homily and try to add some clarification for those who might be in the position now of trying to explain what some of us see as the grave danger being posed by this pope.
