Title: BERGOGLIO'S A CREEP-PROOF
Post by: 54rosary on February 19, 2021, 08:36:28 AM
 
Remember Antipope Bergoglio’s creepy pectoral Cross? Well, it’s EXACTLY the same Cross worn by the Satanist pedophile rapist, Cardinal Joseph Bernardin



Okay. Bernardin was the American satanist who was shot straight to the top of the American church and decided who was elevated to the episcopacy in the US from the late 1960s until his death in ARSH 1996.

Bernardin was the man depicted in the opening chapter of Malachi Martin’s “Windswept House” who co-presided with Bishop John Russell over the black Mass in South Carolina that was performed concurrently with a black Mass in the Pauline Chapel inside the Vatican to “enthrone satan” in the late 1950s. The child who was raped in the South Carolina black Mass, “Agnes”, corresponded with me in ARSH 2014 and confirmed that Bernardin co-presided over the South Carolina black Mass and raped her at the “consecration” equivalent. Agnes’ father was a satanist in South Carolina and provided her to the coven and was present when she was ritually raped.

Bernardin has been recruited by satanists out of the gαy bar scene in Charleston when he was a pre-med undergrad at USC. The satanists placed him into seminary and saw to it that he shot straight to the top of the American church. Bernardin was made a bishop at age 38, and at age 40 was the head of the US bishops’ conference, a position of power which he retained until his death, and his coven of protégées still control to this day.

Bernardin was a key supporter of Saul Alinsky, and Bernardin paid for Barack σbαmα (Barry Soetoro) to be brought to Chicago and be trained in Alinskyism.

Read my piece from ARSH 2012, “The Bernardin-Alinsky-σbαmα Nexus” here. (https://www.barnhardt.biz/2014/07/28/the-one-about-the-bernardin-alinsky-σbαmα-nexus/)

Antipope Bergoglio has worn a creepy pectoral Cross with Christ (?) depicted with arms crossed since his elevation in Buenos Aires. On the left is Bergoglio before usurping the Petrine See, and on the right is after the usurpation, with a new silver version of the same Cross:

(https://www.barnhardt.biz/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/img_3688.jpg)
It is thought that this is actually a satanic icon, rooted in “Osiris”, and that the odd “dove” at the top is actually a goat head with horns, stylized so as to be claimed to be “a dove”. The face of the man looks like an evil death mask.

Not coincidentally, in December of ARSH 2019, a Pachamama worship ritual was performed at a televised Vatican “Christmas concert”, led by an Amazonian witch. These were the last days before the global putsch of the CÖVÌD political religion and the global interdict of the Catholic Church. This screen cap is literally of the Pachamama worship ritual inside the Paul VI hall inside the Vatican:
(https://www.barnhardt.biz/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/img_3693.png)
But here’s the new info, sent in by an eagle-eyed reader. This pectoral cross that Antipope Bergoglio wears is EXACTLY the same as that worn by the Satanist Cardinal Bernardin:
(https://www.barnhardt.biz/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/img_3695-scaled.jpg)
(https://www.barnhardt.biz/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/img_3697.jpg)
Interestingly, Wilton Gregory, the black sơdơmite hand-picked by the fαɢɢօt Cardinal Donald Wuerl, himself a protégée of Uncle Ted McCarrick, to replace Wuerl in Washington DC, was Bernardin’s protégée (and assumed sơdơmy partner.) Here is a picture of the known satanist and child rapist Bernardin consecrating Wilton Gregory a Bishop at age 36, on Halloween ARSH 1983, and a picture of Gregory serving Bernardin’s Mass. You can see the edge of Bernardin’s pectoral Cross. Given Wilton Gregory’s flaming ɧoɱosɛҳųαƖity and intimate connection with Bernardin, it is not at all unreasonable to suspect Wilton Gregory of being connected to Satanism. Which makes him just perfect to be the Cardinal Archbishop of Washington DC.

Barnhardt follow-up article:



The Satanic Bernardin-Bergoglio Pectoral Cross: “Why are the feet facing different directions?” Because the figure isn’t Christ… it is the ANTICHRIST (https://www.barnhardt.biz/2021/02/19/the-satanic-bernardin-bergoglio-pectoral-cross-why-are-the-feet-facing-different-directions-because-the-figure-isnt-christ-it-is-the-antichrist/)

Now THIS is extremely creepy.
An eagle-eyed reader sent a very short email regarding the posts on the Bernardin-Bergoglio super-creepy pectoral cross (https://www.barnhardt.biz/2021/02/10/remember-antipope-bergoglios-creepy-pectoral-cross-well-its-exactly-the-same-cross-worn-by-the-satanist-pedophile-rapist-cardinal-joseph-bernardin/). “Why are the feet facing different directions?”
I made the Scooby-Doo inquisitive noise and pulled up my picture and zoomed in on the legs and feet of the figure, and sure enough, absolutely no mistake, the leg on our left is facing backward – you can clearly see the musculature of the calf shows that the view is from the rear, you can see the anatomy of the knee is from the rear, and the foot itself is the view of the Achilles’ tendon and heel. The leg and foot on our right is clearly front-facing, as it should be.
(https://www.barnhardt.biz/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/img_3733.jpg)
(https://www.barnhardt.biz/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/img_3688-1.jpg)
So I start looking up “backward leg or foot” and… guys, it’s NEVER good. It is a UNIVERSAL motif of the demonic. As in, inversion, mirror images, the sowing of confusion, deception, leading people astray, especially children, oftentimes to ritual death. Just a few of the demonic “backwards leg/foot” entries include:
Tata Duende (Mayan demon, child kidnapper) (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tata_Duende)
Churel (South Asian demon, vampiric, hunts young men especially) (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Churel)
Pichal Peri (Himalayan demon) (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pichal_Peri)
Curupira (Brazilian demon) (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curupira)
Bhoots (Indian demon-ghosts) (https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bhoot_(ghost))
Ciguapa (Dominican Republic demon) (https://dominicancult.blogspot.com/2013/09/la-ciguapa-dominican-succubus.html?m=1)
Again, the common linkage with the motif of one or both legs/feet being reversed is that of DECEPTION and leading victims astray by confusion. Is the demon coming or going? Which way is it facing? The demon has a superficial initial appearance of normalcy, but is actually an inversion or MIRROR IMAGE.
If this isn’t apropos of the Bergoglian Antipapacy and the Antichurch of which he is the public face, I don’t know what is.
So now we not only see why the Bernardin-Bergoglio “pectoral cross” has a figure with a reversed leg and foot, but we also see the significance to the Luciferian cabal of usurpers at war with Jesus Christ and His Holy Church.
The figure on the Bernardin-Bergoglio pectoral cross isn’t Christ. It is the ANTICHRIST.

It seems obvious that Bergoglio's pectoral cross is nearly identical to that of Bernardin, a known Satanist.

Nevertheless, the arms being crossed appears to be a function of Jesus(?) holding a sheep over his shoulder (there are more sheep in the background).

(https://www.crossroadsinitiative.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/Good-Shepherd-Thomas-Aquinas-1-Christ-with-sheep-on-shoulder.jpg)

We can't rule it out, but I wouldn't call the image proof of anything.  Far more disturbing is the fact that Bergoglio's cross is identical to that of Bernardin ... a known Satanist, sơdơmite, and rapist.

The topic is BERGOGLIO'S A CREEP-PROOF

It is a general topic to which others will possibly provide their own proof that BERGOGLIO'S A CREEP?

I also want to add that the arms being crossed have a particular memory from our Novus Ordo days
in which the one who did not wish to receive the Holy Eucharist at Mass for diverse reasons would
none the less go up in line to the priest or extraordinary minister with our arms crossed instead of
remaining kneeling while not going up at all.  

I do not know if there is any significance or not to this, but in life all things have meaning including the
pictures of the crossed arms in the above posts as are here pertaining to Fɾҽҽmαsσɳɾყ.

Also,  I want to add that on the image of the person on the pectoral cross, it occurs to me that there is a phallic symbol on the person in the middle of the garment and also fingers on a hand.

The implications of this are obvious as the design of the cross was purposely manufactured as such.

Since we are speaking of Bergoglio!

Hear or read a True Pope's writtings concerning All Patriarchs, Primates, Archbishops, and Bishops.  A Pope is a head Bishop.
Qui Pluribus  On Faith and Religion by Pope BI. Pius IX - 1846

One in particular person comes to the mind of the readers.  Be humble and admit who he is.  Why is he teaching this and getting away with it.


 "Also perverse is the shocking theory that it makes no difference to which religion one belongs, a theory which is greatly at variance even with reason. By means of this theory, those crafty men remove all distinction between virtue and vice, truth and error, honorable and vile action. They pretend that men can gain eternal salvation by the practice of any religion, as if there could ever be any sharing between justice and iniquity, any collaboration between light and darkness, or any agreement between Christ and Belial."

"When ministers are ignorant or neglectful of their duty, then the morals of the people also immediately decline, Christian discipline grows slack, the practice of religion is dislodged and cast aside, and every vice and corruption is easily introduced into the Church. The word of God, which was uttered for the salvation of souls, is living, efficacious and more piercing than a two-edged sword.[24] So that it may not prove to be unfruitful through the fault of its ministers, never cease, venerable brothers, from encouraging the preachers of this divine word to carry out most religiously the ministry of the Gospel. This should not be carried out by the persuasive words of human wisdom, nor by the profane seductive guise of empty and ambitious eloquence, but rather as a demonstration of the spirit and power."

I cannot say with moral certitude that you are wrong about this particular item, but it seems to me, that making this connection is just a bit far-fetched.  It is the kind of thing one (not you) would almost have to be trying to find.

The "King of Glory" cross out in Oklahoma a few years ago was far more offensive, but they claim it was just abdominal muscles, not, ahem, that other thing.

I should have been reluctant to state this observation at first because it obviously puts me out there for ridicule;  but I also showed it to someone else who confirmed that it was there.  I could absolutely be wrong, but I do not think so at this time.

Also, I should have been prepared and should have expected it to be explained away by others here, there, or anywhere;  however, it was not that way.

I am not familiar with the "King of Glory" cross in any way.

I was not ridiculing you.  You might be right.  But for myself, I just don't see it, or rather, I wouldn't see it, unless it had been brought up to me.  Even then, I think it's a bit of a stretch, but maybe that's just me.  Again, you may be right.

The "King of Glory" cross was a one-dimensional crucifix in Oklahoma, and some people thought the abdomen looked like the male members in their fullest state.  Again, it's the kind of thing that, once someone calls it to your attention, you can't "unsee" it.  Once the furor reached a certain point, the crucifix was replaced with a rendition that could not possibly be interpreted that way.  I shall not provide a link, much less a picture, but interested readers can search for it online.

Look up the legend surrounding the humble pretzel.  It is said that an Italian monk was making bread with only flour and water on account of the Lenten fast.  He shaped the bread so it resembled arms crossed in prayer, which was a common posture among early Christians.  The word pretzel itself refers to "little arms."  I won't speak to the pectoral cross but crossing arms in prayer isn't ipso facto masonic.

Sola Ex Cathedra is every bit as much a heresy as Sola Scriptura
1.)   Sola Ex Cathedra (Popes are only infallible when making
an ex cathedra definition) is a heresy of semi-Trads.
2.)   Sola Scriptura (only the Bible is infallible) is a heresy of Protestants.
 
If the Popes could at times teach heresy, how would we know when they are teaching truth or error?  We would have to be the superior of the Pope to decide when he is teaching the truth and when he is teaching falsehood…that is a complete prideful delusion!
 
 
OBJECTION # 1: Vatican I said the Pope is only infallible when speaking Ex Cathedra
 
ANSWER # 1: While it is true that Ex Cathedra statements are infallible; it is absolutely NOT true that Ex Cathedra statements are the ONLY times Popes are infallible. Vatican I infallibly declares:
 
The First Vatican Council  
Dogmatic Constitution of Vatican I,Pastor Aeternus    
Pope Pius IX, July 18, 1870 A.D.    
  
“Indeed, their apostolic teaching was embraced by all the venerable fathers and reverenced and followed by all the holy orthodox doctors, for they knew very well that this see of St. Peter always remains unblemished by any error, in accordance with the divine promise of our Lord and Savior to the prince of his disciples: I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail; and when you have turned again, strengthen your brethren.    
  
“This gift of truth and never-failing faith was therefore divinely conferred on Peter and his successors in this see so that they might discharge their exalted office for the salvation of all, and so that the whole flock of Christ might be kept away by them from the poisonous food of error and be nourished with the sustenance of heavenly doctrine.”    
 
The First Vatican Council    
Dogmatic Constitution on the Catholic Faith, Dei Filius    
Pope Pius IX, 24 April 1870 A.D.    
  
“Wherefore, by divine and Catholic faith all those things are to be believed which are contained in the word of God as found in Scripture and tradition, and which are proposed by the Church as matters to be believed as divinely revealed, whether by her solemn judgment or in her ordinary and universal magisterium.”   
  
Humani Generis     
On Modern Errors     
Pope Pius XII – August 12, 1950     
  
Paragraph 20: “Nor must it be thought that what is expounded in Encyclical Letters does not of itself demand consent, since in writing such Letters the Popes do not exercise the supreme power of their Teaching Authority. For these matters are taught with the ordinary teaching authority (magisterio ordinario), of which it is true to say: “He who heareth you, heareth me…”  (Lk. 10:16)   
 
Notice above in Humani Generis, Pope Pius XII infallibly teaches that    
 
 
OBJECTION # 2: The Vatican II Popes must be true Popes because otherwise Christ’s promise of always being with us would be false.
ANSWER # 2: Actually, the exact opposite is true, the Vatican II Popes must be anti-popes because Christ promised to ALWAYS be with His Church and that His Church would never teach any error or heresy.
How could you square: "I will be with you all days." with the supposed fact that Roncalli thru Bergoglio ARE true popes...then Christ's promised would have failed, then He would have allowed His Church to fail, He would have allowed His Church to be a vehicle of error and damnation.
 
But on the other hand, if Roncalli thru Bergoglio are antipopes, then the Church is still indefectible, it simply hasn't had a valid pope since 1958...but at least the Church and a true Pope wouldn't be propagators of error and heresy!
 
To put it another way, it is possible to have antipopes and interregnums (https://cmri.org/articles-on-the-traditional-catholic-faith/fr-edmund-james-oreilly-s-j-on-the-idea-of-a-long-term-vacancy-of-the-holy-see/ (https://cmri.org/articles-on-the-traditional-catholic-faith/fr-edmund-james-oreilly-s-j-on-the-idea-of-a-long-term-vacancy-of-the-holy-see/)), but it is not possible to have valid popes who teach heresy in Ecumenical Councils and Encyclicals.
 
Here is another article that answers this objection:  
 
OBJECTION: Vatican Council I taught that St. Peter has perpetual successors; therefore, long vacancies in the See of Peter are not possible.
 
ANSWER: Nowhere does the Church determine how long a vacancy may exist in the See of Peter. Between the death of Pope Clement IV (November 29, 1268) and the ɛƖɛctıon of Pope Gregory X (September 1, 1271), there was an interregnum of nearly three years. During the Western Schism, there were three claimants to the See of Peter; theologians teach that even if none of them were pope, that would not be against the promise of Christ or the teaching of perpetual successors.
 
Proof:
A. Institutiones Theologiae Fundamentalis [1929], Rev. A. Dorsch
— “The Church therefore is a society that is essentially monarchical. But this does not prevent the Church, for a short time after the death of a pope, or even for many years, from remaining deprived of her head [vel etiam per plures annos capite suo destituta manet].”
B. The Relations of the Church to Society [1882], Fr. Edward J. O’Reilly, S.J.
— “In the first place, there was all throughout from the death of Gregory XI in 1378, a Pope—with the exception, of course, of the intervals between deaths and ɛƖɛctıons to fill up the vacancies thereby created. There was, I say, at every given time a Pope, really invested with the dignity of Vicar of Christ and Head of the Church, whatever opinions might exist among many as to his genuineness; not that an interregnum covering the whole period would have been impossible or inconsistent with the promises of Christ, for this is by no means manifest, but that, as a matter of fact, there was not such an interregnum.”
C. The Catholic’s Ready Answer [1915], Rev. M. P. Hill, S.J.
— “If during the entire schism (nearly 40 years) there had been no Pope at all—that would not prove that the office and authority of Peter was not transmitted to the next Pope duly elected.”
D. The Defense of the Catholic Church [1927] Fr. Francis X. Doyle, S.J.
— “The Church is a visible society with a visible Ruler. If there can be any doubt about who that visible Ruler is, he is not visible, and hence, where there is any doubt about whether a person has been legitimately elected Pope, that doubt must be removed before he can become the visible head of Christ’s Church. Blessed Bellarmine, S.J., says: ‘A doubtful Pope must be considered as not Pope’; and Suarez, S.J., says: ‘At the time of the Council of Constance there were three men claiming to be Pope…. Hence, it could have been that not one of them was the true Pope, and in that case, there was no Pope at all….’”

TAKE A STEP BACK AND CONSIDER:
 
If the Popes could at times teach heresy, how would we know when they are teaching truth or error?  We would have to be the superior of the Pope to decide when he is teaching the truth and when he is teaching falsehood…that is a complete prideful delusion!
 
Just think for a moment and you will realize how absurd it is to maintain that Roncalli thru Bergoglio are true Popes.
 
1.)   If Popes could teach error and heresy in Encyclicals and Ecumenical Councils then why would we believe in the Trinity, maybe the Council of Nicea got that wrong?
 
2.)   If true Popes could teach error and heresy in "Dogmatic Constitutions" of Ecumenical Councils, why would we believe in Purgatory or that there are 7 Sacraments, maybe the Council of Trent just got those things wrong?
 
3.)   If true Popes could teach error and heresy in their Ordinary Magisterium as long as it isn't an ex cathedra statement, why would we believe that contraception is evil, that is not an Ex Cathedra statement, that is just taught in simple Encyclicals, maybe the Casti Connubbii
 
4.)   If true Popes could teach error and heresy in their Ordinary Magisterium as long as it isn't an ex cathedra statement, why would we believe that any of the Saints, like St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Alphonsus Ligouri, St. Benedict, St. Francis of Assisi, St. Anthony Padua, St. Theresa of Avila, St. Magaret Mary Alocoque, etc. are real Saints, if the Church could error in Canonizations maybe the above Saints are just as fake as "St. John XXIII," "St. Paul VI" and "St. John Paul?"
 
5.)   If true Popes could promulgate, approve and decree evil liturgies like the Novus Ordo, why would we go to the Traditional Latin Mass...maybe that is an evil liturgy approved and promulgated by Pope Pius V?
 
OBJECTION # 3: We need to be so grateful for ____(fill in the blank: the SSPX, the Resistance, the FSSP, etc.) they give us the Sacraments and preach the Faith in its entirety to us!
 
ANSWER # 3:  Do they preach that Ecumenical Councils are ALWAYS infallible and that Encyclicals are ALWAYS infallible?
 
If not, then that is not the Faith in its entirety, it is a betrayal of some essential dogmas of the faith:
 
What Does the Magisterium Teach?
Humility is the path both to being a Catholic & to saving our soul.
 
1.)   Heretics pick & choose which Magisterial teachings they accept & which they reject.
2.)   Heretics judge for themselves (aka private judgment), they think they know better than the Magisterium.
3.)   Heretics make themselves into their own popes, deciding which Magisterial teachings are true and which are false.
 
1.)   Catholics do NOT pick & choose which Magisterial teachings to accept & which to reject, they MUST simply accept them all.
2.)   Catholics do NOT judge for themselves (aka private judgment), they do NOT think they know better than the Magisterium.
3.)   Catholics do NOT make themselves into their own popes, deciding which Magisterial teachings are true and which are false.
 
Can you rebut the following by using infallible quotes from the Magisterium?  If not, then shouldn't we believe exactly what Vatican I, Humani Generis and Mortalium Animos teach?   
 
1.)   You, nor I, nor the SSPX, nor the Resistance, nor Archbishop Lefebvre are infallible. 
2.)   The Catholic Church is infallible. 
3.)   The “…See of St. Peter ALWAYS remains unblemished by any error.” (Vatican I) It was given a “gift of truth and NEVER failing faith.” 
4.)   The Solemn Magisterium is infallible. (Vatican I)
5.)   The Ordinary Magisterium is infallible. (Humani Generis)
6.)   Encyclicals and Ecumenical Councils are infallible.
7.)   “…the power to teach, govern and administer the Sacraments, derive their supernatural efficacy and force of the building up of the body of Christ from the fact that Jesus Christ, hanging on the Cross, opened up to His Church the fountain of those divine gifts, which prevent her from ever teaching false doctrine.” (Mystici Corporis Christi) 
8.)   Vatican II is heretical and countless subsequent Encyclicals of the V2 popes are heretical, (http://www.holyromancatholicchurch.org/heresies.html (http://www.holyromancatholicchurch.org/heresies.html)), therefore it is not possible for Roncalli thru Bergoglio to be Popes, because Vatican I infallibly teaches: 
 
The First Vatican Council  
Dogmatic Constitution of Vatican I,Pastor Aeternus    
Pope Pius IX, July 18, 1870 A.D.    
  
“Indeed, their apostolic teaching was embraced by all the venerable fathers and reverenced and followed by all the holy orthodox doctors, for they knew very well that this see of St. Peter always remains unblemished by any error, in accordance with the divine promise of our Lord and Savior to the prince of his disciples: I have prayed for you that your faith may not fail; and when you have turned again, strengthen your brethren.    
  
“This gift of truth and never-failing faith was therefore divinely conferred on Peter and his successors in this see so that they might discharge their exalted office for the salvation of all, and so that the whole flock of Christ might be kept away by them from the poisonous food of error and be nourished with the sustenance of heavenly doctrine.”    
 
The First Vatican Council    
Dogmatic Constitution on the Catholic Faith, Dei Filius    
Pope Pius IX, 24 April 1870 A.D.    
  
“Wherefore, by divine and Catholic faith all those things are to be believed which are contained in the word of God as found in Scripture and tradition, and which are proposed by the Church as matters to be believed as divinely revealed, whether by her solemn judgment or in her ordinary and universal magisterium.”   
  
Humani Generis     
On Modern Errors     
Pope Pius XII – August 12, 1950     
  
Paragraph 20: “Nor must it be thought that what is expounded in Encyclical Letters does not of itself demand consent, since in writing such Letters the Popes do not exercise the supreme power of their Teaching Authority. For these matters are taught with the ordinary teaching authority (magisterio ordinario), of which it is true to say: “He who heareth you, heareth me…”  (Lk. 10:16)   
 
Notice above in Humani Generis, Pope Pius XII infallibly teaches that    
 
 
Mortalium Animos, Encyclical by Pope Pius XI, 1928  
 
“The Magisterium of the Church (“Ecclesia Magisterium”) which in the divine wisdom was constituted on earth in order that revealed doctrines might remain intact forever, and that they might be brought with ease and security to the knowledge of men, … is daily exercised [cotidie exerceturthrough the Roman Pontiff and the Bishops who are in communion with him.” (Pius XI, Mortalium Animos, 1928)  
  
Note Well: The Teaching Authority (Magisterium) of the Church is exercised every day…not just in extraordinary circumstances, so there is no way to maintain that Vatican II and 62 years worth of Encyclicals and Catechisms from 1958-2020 weren’t the Magisterium of the Church…the Church’s Magisterium is incapable of teaching heresies…thus it is proof positive that John XXIII – Francis are not now/have never been, true Popes.  
 
Pope Pius XII, Mystici Corporis Christi, June 29, 1943:  
 
22. Actually only those are to be included as members of the Church who have been baptized and profess the true faith, and who have not been so unfortunate as to separate themselves from the unity of the Body, or been excluded by legitimate authority for grave faults committed. “For in one spirit” says the Apostle, “were we all baptized into one Body, whether Jews or Gentiles, whether bond or free.” 17 (https://www.papalencyclicals.net/pius12/p12mysti.htm#easy-footnote-bottom-17-357) As therefore in the true Christian community there is only one Body, one Spirit, one Lord, and one Baptism, so there can be only one faith. 18 (https://www.papalencyclicals.net/pius12/p12mysti.htm#easy-footnote-bottom-18-357) And therefore if a man refuse to hear the Church let him be considered — so the Lord commands — as a heathen and a publican19 (https://www.papalencyclicals.net/pius12/p12mysti.htm#easy-footnote-bottom-19-357) It follows that those are divided in faith or government cannot be living in the unity of such a Body, nor can they be living the life of its one Divine Spirit.  
 
23. Nor must one imagine that the Body of the Church, just because it bears the name of Christ, is made up during the days of its earthly pilgrimage only of members conspicuous for their holiness, or that it consists only of those whom God has predestined to eternal happiness. it is owing to the Savior’s infinite mercy that place is allowed in His Mystical Body here below for those whom, of old, He did not exclude from the banquet. For not every offense, however grave it may be, is such as of its own nature to sever a man from the Body of the Church,as does schism or heresy or apostasy.  
 
31. Just as at the first moment of the Incarnation the Son of the Eternal Father adorned with the fullness of the Holy Spirit the human nature which was substantially united to Him, that it might be a fitting instrument of the Divinity in the sanguinary work of the Redemption, so at the hour of His precious death He willed that His Church should be enriched with the abundant gifts of the Paraclete in order that in dispensing the divine fruits of the Redemption she might be, for the Incarnate Word, a powerful instrument that would never fail. For both the juridical mission of the Church, and the power to teach, govern and administer the Sacraments, derive their supernatural efficacy and force of the building up of the body of Christ from the fact that Jesus Christ, hanging on the Cross, opened up to His Church the fountain of those divine gifts, which prevent her from ever teaching false doctrine and enable her to rule them for the salvation of their souls through divinely enlightened pastors and to bestow on them an abundance of heavenly graces.

And yet you point out the errors of the post-conciliar popes yourself. And you are not the superior of the pope, I take it. And yet you are taking it upon yourself to point out the errors. How would anyone have ever known that the post-conciliar popes have taught error, if no one is allowed to question a true pope? Someone had to first raise a concern about the errors of the post-conciliar popes in order for a problem to even be addressed. But, according to you, we can NEVER EVER question a true pope. Not ever. So in reality, no one should have ever dared to question the post-conciliar popes (or any pope) in the first place, correct?

There are lots of disturbing things about the V2 papal claimaints.

Wojtyla walked around with this almost grotesque crozier that some people acquainted with the subject say closely resembles a Satanic "bent/broken cross".  He also regularly appeared with upside-down crosses.  Sure, the explanation if that of St Peter, but to anyone with Catholic sensibilities it suggests Satanism.

Look at the grotesque artwork at the Vatican, especially in the Paul VI Audience Hall (it looks like hell's gates opening).  Montini also wore the Masonic "ephod of Caiaphas" and his mother's grave has Masonic symbols on it.

Teachings of Francis I
Scripture or Past Church Teaching
 
 
Atheism
 
On Heaven and Earth2, pp. 12-13: “I do not approach the relationship in order to proselytize, or convert the atheist; I respect him… nor would I say that his life is condemned, because I am convinced that I do not have the right to make a judgment about the honesty of that person… every man is the image of God, whether he is a believer or not."
 
"If any one deny the one true God, Creator and Lord of all things visible and invisible, let him be anathema" (Conc. Vatican., Sess. III, "De fide", can. i).
 
"If anyone shall have said that the one true God, our Creator and our Lord, cannot be known with certitude by those things which have been made, by the natural light of human reason: let him be anathema" (First Vatican Council, Sess III, can. 2/1: Denz. 1806; cf. D. 1785).
 
And to you who are troubled, rest with us when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven, with the angels of his power, in a flame of fire, giving vengeance to them who know not God, and who obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, who shall suffer eternal punishment in destruction, from the face of the Lord, and from the glory of his power.” II Thessalonians I: 7-9
 
Francis I response to open letter3 published Sep 2013: “First of all, you ask if the God of the Christians forgives those who do not believe and do not seek faith. Given that - and this is fundamental - God's mercy has no limits if he who asks for mercy does so in contrition and with a sincere heart, the issue for those who do not believe in God is in obeying their own conscience. In fact, listening and obeying it, means deciding about what is perceived to be good or to be evil. The goodness or the wickedness of our behavior depends on this decision.
 
"...faith is the beginning of human salvation, the foundation, and the root of all Justification; without which it is impossible to please God..." Council of Trent, Chapter VIII

Blessed Trinity
 
Interview with the Italian newspaper La Repubblica1, September 24, 2013: “I believe in God, not in a Catholic God, there is no Catholic God, there is God and I believe in Jesus Christ, his incarnation. Jesus is my teacher and my pastor, but God, the Father, Abba, is the light and the Creator. This is my Being.”
 
Comment: Our Catholic God is the Trinity, which is different from the Gods professed by non-Christians:
 
"the Father is God, the Son is God, and the Holy Spirit is God, and yet there are not three Gods but one God." Athanasian Creed
 
“Q. 1400. Name some of the more essential religious truths we must know and believe. 2.(2) That in God there are three Divine Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, and these Divine Persons are called the Blessed Trinity.” Baltimore Catechism

Capital Punishment (The Death Penalty)
 
Letter to the President of the International Commission against the death penalty9, March 20, 2015: "Today capital punishment is unacceptable, however serious the condemned’s crime may have been. It is an offence to the inviolability of life and to the dignity of the human person which contradicts God’s plan for man and for society and his merciful justice, and it fails to conform to any just purpose of punishment.".....
 “All Christians and men of good will are thus called today to fight not only for the abolition of the death penalty, whether legal or illegal, and in all its forms, but also in order to improve prison conditions, with respect for the human dignity of the people deprived of their freedom

 
 
 
To participants in the meeting promoted by the pontifical Council for promoting the new evangelization24, Oct 11, 2017:  “It must be clearly stated that the death penalty is an inhumane measure that, regardless of how it is carried out, abases human dignity. It is per se contrary to the Gospel…"  L’Osservatore Romano, October 13, 2017, pp. 7,11
 
The same divine authority that forbids the killing of a human being establishes certain exceptions, as when God authorizes killing by a general law or when He gives an explicit commission to an individual for a limited time. The agent who executes the killing does not commit homicide; he is an instrument as is the sword with which he cuts. Therefore, it is in no way contrary to the commandment, 'Thou shalt not kill' to wage war at God's bidding, or for the representatives of public authority to put criminals to death, according to the law, that is, the will of the most just reason” St. Augustine, The City of God, Book 1, chapter 21
 
Therefore if a man be dangerous and infectious to the community, on account of some sin, it is praiseworthy and healthful that he be killed in order to safeguard the common good, since "a little leaven corrupteth the whole lump” (1 Cor. 5:6)” St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica, Whether It Is Lawful to Kill Sinners?
 
Even in the case of the death penalty the State does not dispose of the individual’s right to life. Rather public authority limits itself to depriving the offender of the good of life in expiation for his guilt, after he, through his crime, deprived himself of his own right to life” Pius XII, Address to the First International Congress of Histopathology of the Nervous System, 14 Sep 1952, XIV, 328
 
"The infliction of capital punishment is not contrary to the teaching of the Catholic Church, and the power of the State to visit upon culprits the penalty of death derives much authority from revelation and from the writings of theologians” Catholic Encyclopedia, Capital Punishment

Cohabitation / Concubinage
 
Address to the Diocese of Rome’s Pastoral Congress, Q&A Session14, Jun 16, 2016: “They prefer to cohabitate, and this is a challenge, a task. Not to ask ‘why don’t you marry?’ No, to accompany, to wait, and to help them to mature, help fidelity to mature.”........ “I’ve seen a lot of fidelity in these cohabitations, and I am sure that this is a real marriage, they have the grace of a real marriage because of their fidelity.”
 
“It is a grievous sin for unmarried men to have concubines ...Wherefore, the holy Synod, that it may by suitable remedies provide against this exceeding evil, ordains that these concubinaries, whether unmarried or married, of whatsoever state, dignity, and condition they may be, if, after having been three times admonished on this subject by the Ordinary, even ex officio, they shall not have put away their concubines, and have separated themselves from all connexion with them, they shall be smitten with excommunication; from which they shall not be absolved until they have really obeyed the admonition given them.” Council of Trent, Ch. VIII, Concubinage is severely punished
 
“13. But in all these affairs, one of your aims should be to instill in the faithful a greater aversion for sins which scandalize others; your priests should share this aim. You are aware of the increase in the number of those who sin in a scandalous manner: those who blaspheme the heavenly saints and the holy name of God as well; those who live in concubinage.....So, make the faithful consider the seriousness of sins of this kind and the heavy penalties for them, both for the guilt of the sin itself and for the spiritual danger in which they place their brothers by the infection of their bad example. For it is written: "Woe to the world because of scandals . . . Woe to that man by whom the scandal comes!" Pope Pius IX, On the Church in the Pontifical States, December 8, 1849
 
"The scandal of concubinage is removed by marriage, which should be made known to those who were scandalized, either by the pastor or by the parties themselves." Canon Law 1043
 
"Hence if both parties intended and expressed the intention in some way or other to enter upon a mere Concubinage, there would be no marriage." Canon Law 1082
 
"If a marriage is found invalid, as, for instance, among the Gallas, where slaves contract a contubernium or legalized concubinage, the parties must be separated until they are lawfully married" Canon Law 1084
 
"Therefore concubinage must be given up because incompatible with Christian morals" Canon Law 1124

ƈσmmυɳιsm
 
Conversations with Jorge Bergoglio4, p. 39: “It’s true that I was, like the rest of my family, a practicing Catholic. But my mind was not made solely for religious questions… I read Our Word and Proposals, a publication by the Communist Party, and I loved every article ever written by Leonidas Barletta, one of their best-known members…
 
"See to it, Venerable Brethren, that the Faithful do not allow themselves to be deceived! ƈσmmυɳιsm is intrinsically wrong, and no one who would save Christian civilization may collaborate with it in any undertaking whatsoever. Those who permit themselves to be deceived into lending their aid towards the triumph of ƈσmmυɳιsm in their own country, will be the first to fall victims of their error. And the greater the antiquity and grandeur of the Christian civilization in the regions where ƈσmmυɳιsm successfully penetrates, so much more devastating will be the hatred displayed by the godless" Encyclical On Atheistic ƈσmmυɳιsm by Pope Pius XI, 1937
 
"To this goal also tends the unspeakable doctrine of ƈσmmυɳιsm, as it is called, a doctrine most opposed to the very natural law. For if this doctrine were accepted, the complete destruction of everyone's laws, government, property, and even of human society itself would follow." Encyclical On Faith and Religion by Pope Pius IX, 1846

Contraception
 
In-flight interview from Mexico15, Feb 17, 2016: “The great Paul VI, in a difficult situation in Africa, permitted nuns to use a form of artificial contraceptives in cases of rape.....On the other hand, avoiding pregnancy is not an absolute evil. In certain cases, as in this one (the Zika virus outbreak), or in the one I mentioned of Blessed Paul VI, it was clear.”
 
"But no reason, however grave, may be put forward by which anything intrinsically against nature may become conformable to nature and morally good. Since, therefore, the conjugal act is destined primarily by nature for the begetting of children, those who in exercising it deliberately frustrate its natural power and purpose sin against nature and commit a deed which is shameful and intrinsically vicious."
"...any use whatsoever of matrimony exercised in such a way that the act is deliberately frustrated in its natural power to generate life is an offense against the law of God and of nature, and those who indulge in such are branded with the guilt of a grave sin."
"...No difficulty can arise that justifies the putting aside of the law of God which forbids all acts intrinsically evil." Pope Pius XI, Encyclical On Christian Marriage, Dec 31, 1930
 
"A negative precept of natural law which prohibits a thing intrinsically evil can never be lawfully transgressed not even under the influence of the fear of death, (Lib. I, tr. ii, c. iv, dub. 2, n. 1) So that it is not lawful to do a thing which is wrong in itself, even to escape death" Catholic Encyclopedia, Hermann Busembaum

Conversion/Proselytizing
 
Church of the Assumption, Tbilisi, Georgia16, Oct 1, 2016: “Never fight! Let the theologians study the abstract realities of theology. But what should I do with a friend, neighbour, an Orthodox person? Be open, be a friend. ‘But should I make efforts to convert him or her?’ There is a very grave sin against ecumenism: proselytism. We should never proselytize the Orthodox!” L’ Osservatore Romano, October 7, 2016, p. 11
 
Comment: If proselytizing is a grave sin, why did all of the Catholic missionaries throughout the history of the Church dedicate their lives to it?
 
"… St. Francis De Sales had volunteered to re-evangelize the Chablais, a region in France south of Geneva consisting of some 72,000 souls, almost all of whom were now Calvinists, since their ancestors had succumbed to Protestantism 60 years before… St. Francis' first few months saw mostly failure, as he spent a very cold winter tramping over the countryside, receiving a frigid welcome and sometimes sleeping in hay lofts at night. So he resorted to writing pamphlets - which he posted on walls and slipped under doors. By this method he was able to reach the souls he was after, such that at the end of 4 years, almost the entire population of 72,000 had returned to the ancient Catholic Faith." The Catholic Controversy, St. Francis De Sales
 
Discourse to Priests, Men and Women Religious, Seminarians21 Sep 9, 2017: “On one of my trips, World Youth Day in Poland [Krakow 2016], during a lunch with 15 young people and the Archbishop, one of them asked me: ‘What can I tell my young friend who is an atheist, who does not believe, what reasoning can I use?’. And it struck me how to reply: ‘Look, the last thing you must do is say anything’. He just stared at me.” L’Osservatore Romano, Sep 22, 2017, p. 10
 
"Having protected their persons (the Jҽωs), St. Vincent now proceeded to the salvation of their souls. He preached to them, held controversial meetings with the most learned of them, and converted them by the thousand. In 1391, he converted 7,000 Jҽωs in Valencia alone, and 10,000 more throughout the kingdom." The Angel of the Judgment - A Life of St. Vincent Ferrer (imprimatur 1953)

Ecumenism & Religious Freedom
 
Address in St. Peter's Square5, May 18, 2013: “… promote religious freedom for everyone, everyone! Every man and every woman must be free in his or her profession of religion, whatever it may be.L’ Osservatore Romano, May 22, 2013, p. 11.
 
General Audience with representatives of the world’s various religions11, Oct 28, 2015: "the Church regards with esteem the believers of all religions, appreciating their spiritual and moral commitment…Now, to conclude this Audience, I invite everyone, each one on his or her own, to pray in silence. May each one do so according to his or her own religious tradition.”
L’ Osservatore Romano, October 30, 2015, pp. 3-4
"The Catholic Church is alone in keeping the true worship. This is the fount of truth, this the house of Faith, this the temple of God: if any man enter not here, or if any man go forth from it, he is a stranger to the hope of life and salvation.” Encyclical "Mortalium Animos" (On Religious Unity), by Pope Pius XI in 1928
 
"Certainly such attempts can nowise be approved by Catholics, founded as they are on that false opinion which considers all religions to be more or less good and praiseworthy, since they all in different ways manifest and signify that sense which is inborn in us all, and by which we are led to God and to the obedient acknowledgment of His rule. Not only are those who hold this opinion in error and deceived, but also in distorting the idea of true religion they reject it, and little by little turn aside to naturalism and atheism, as it is called; from which it clearly follows that one who supports those who hold these theories and attempt to realize them, is altogether abandoning the divinely revealed religion." Encyclical "Mortalium Animos" (On Religious Unity), by Pope Pius XI in 1928

"Now We consider another abundant source of the evils with which the Church is afflicted at present: indifferentism. This perverse opinion is spread on all sides by the fɾαυd of the wicked who claim that it is possible to obtain the eternal salvation of the soul by the profession of any kind of religion, as long as morality is maintained. Surely, in so clear a matter, you will drive this dєαdlу error far from the people committed to your care. With the admonition of the apostle that "there is one God, one faith, one baptism"."

Vatican radio message8, May 24, 2015: “I feel like saying something that may sound controversial, or even heretical, perhaps. But there is someone who “knows” that, despite our differences, we are one. It is he who is persecuting us. It is he who is persecuting Christians today, he who is anointing us with (the blood of) martyrdom. He knows that Christians are disciples of Christ: that they are one, that they are brothers! He doesn’t care if they are Evangelicals, or Orthodox, Lutherans, Catholics or Apostolic…he doesn’t care! They are Christians.

We forbid each and every one of the faithful of either sex, in virtue of holy obedience and under the above penalties to be incurred automatically, to read, assert, preach, praise, print, publish, or defend them. They will incur these penalties if they presume to uphold them in any way, personally or through another or others, directly or indirectly, tacitly or explicitly, publicly or occultly, either in their own homes or in other public or private places.” Condemning the Errors of Martin Luther (Exsurge Domine), Pope Leo X, June 15, 1520

Evolution of Doctrine
 
To participants in the meeting promoted by the pontifical Council for promoting the new evangelization24, Oct 11, 2017: “Doctrine cannot be preserved without allowing it to develop, nor can it be tied to an interpretation that is rigid and immutable without demeaning the working of the Holy Spirit.
L’ Osservatore Romano, October 13, 2017, pp. 7,11
 
I sincerely hold that the doctrine of faith was handed down to us from the apostles through the orthodox Fathers in exactly the same meaning and always in the same purport. Therefore, I entirely reject the heretical misrepresentation that dogmas evolve and change from one meaning to another different from the one which the Church held previously.” Pope St. Pius X, Oath against Modernism
 
"Nor do We merely desire that Catholics should shrink from the errors of Modernism, but also from the tendencies or what is called the spirit of Modernism. Those who are infected by that spirit develop a keen dislike for all that savours of antiquity and become eager searchers after novelties in everything: in the way in which they carry out religious functions, in the ruling of Catholic institutions, and even in private exercises of piety. Therefore it is Our will that the law of our forefathers should still be held sacred: "Let there be no innovation; keep to what has been handed down." Pope Benedict XV, Ad Beatissimi Apostolorum (Appealing for Peace), Nov 1, 1914

False Gods
 
In 2012, Cardinal Bergoglio held an interreligious prayer meeting in the Cathedral of Buenos Aires with the leaders of false religions including Judaism and Protestant sects. In this prayer meeting he allowed the members of these false religions to pray aloud to their false gods in the Cathedral. Bergoglio has been known to organize other similar meetings (similar to his two predecessors) that are well documented and photographed in the news.
"First Commandment of God: I am the Lord thy God, thou shall not have strange gods before Me"
 
Q: What else does the First Commandment forbid?
A: The First Commandment also forbids all dealings with the devil, and all association with anti-Christian sects.
 The Catechism of Saint Pius X, The First Commandment

 
When it is said: Thou shalt not have strange gods before me, it is equivalent to saying: Thou shalt worship me the true God; thou shalt not worship strange gods.” The Catechism of Trent, The First Commandment
 
“As the true God can tolerate no strange gods, the true Church of Christ can tolerate no strange Churches beside herself, or, what amounts to the same, she can recognize none as theoretically justified.” Catholic Encyclopedia, Religious Toleration

Hell
 
Interview with the Italian newspaper La Repubblica25, Mar 28, 2018: When asked where bad souls are punished, Francis replied: “They are not punished, those who repent obtain the forgiveness of God and enter the rank of souls who contemplate him, but those who do not repent and cannot therefore be forgiven disappear. There is no hell, there is the disappearance of sinful souls.
 
"Moreover, we declare that according to the common arrangement of God, the souls of those who depart in actual mortal sin immєdιαtely after their death descend to hell where they are tortured by infernal punishments..." Pope Benedict XII, Benedictus Deus, 1336

Islam
 
Evangelii Gaudium6, November, 2013: “We must never forget that they [the Moslems] ‘profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together with us they adore the one, merciful God, who will judge humanity on the last day’.
 
Address to the President of Religious Affairs in Turkey and Muslim and Christian political and religious leaders12, Nov 28, 2014: "We, Muslims and Christians, are the bearers of spiritual treasures of inestimable worth. Among these we recognize some shared elements, though lived according to the traditions of each, such as the adoration of the All-Merciful God, reference to the Patriarch Abraham, prayer, almsgiving, fasting… elements which, when lived sincerely, can transform life and provide a sure foundation for dignity and fraternity."
 
Comment: Catholics and Muslims do not adore the same God (Catholics adore the Blessed Trinity):
 
"But he that shall deny me before men, I will also deny him before my Father who is in heaven." Matthew 10:33
 
“For he that shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him the Son of man shall be ashamed, when he shall come in his majesty, and that of his Father, and of the holy angels.” Luke 9:26

Prayer in Common
 
Conversations with Jorge Bergoglio4, p. 208: “Not long ago I was in a ѕуηαgσgυє taking part in a ceremony. I prayed a lot and, while praying, I heard a phrase from one of the books of wisdom that had slipped my mind: ‘Lord, may I bear mockery in silence.’ It gave me much peace and joy.”
 
"If any ecclesiastic or layman shall go into the ѕуηαgσgυє of the Jҽωs or to the meeting-houses of the heretics to join in prayer with them, let them be deposed and deprived of communion. If any Bishops or Priest or Deacon shall join in prayer with heretics, let him be suspended from Communion" Third Council of Constantinople
 
"It is not permitted at all for the faithful to assist in any active manner at or to have any part in the worship of non-Catholics." 1917 Code of Canon Law, Canon 1258
 
“The Code declares the following persons as suspect of heresy: 1. The propagators of heresy and those who participate with non-Catholics in divinis (Can. 2316)” Commentary on Canon Law (Augustine, 1918)
 
"Speaking generally, the faithful are forbidden to take part in any religious rites, considered as such, of pagans, Mohammedans, or Jҽωs, and all the more to practice them through a kind of survival of their primitive superstitions. If this prohibition is inspired not so much by a fear of the danger of perversion as by the law forbidding the faithful to communicate in sacris with non-Catholics, aversion to false religions and especially from idol worship justifies the rigor of the law" Catholic Encyclopedia, Infidels
 
 
Common Declaration with Archbishop of Canterbury17, Oct 5, 2016: “Nor should our (Catholic and Anglican) differences come in the way of our common prayer: not only can we pray together, we must pray together, giving voice to our shared faith and joy in the Gospel of Christ, the ancient Creeds, and the power of God’s love, made present in the Holy Spirit…” L’ Osservatore Romano, Oct 14, 2016, pp. 7-8

“So, Venerable Brethren, it is clear why this Apostolic See has never allowed its subjects to take part in the assemblies of non-Catholics: for the union of Christians can only be promoted by promoting the return to the one true Church of Christ of those who are separated from it” Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos (1928)

CONDEMNED: Protestantism is nothing more than another form of the same true Christian religion, in which form it is given to please God equally as in the Catholic Church” Syllabus of Errors, Pope Pius IX, 1864
 
These reasons suffice to show superabundantly by how many roads Modernism leads to atheism and to the annihilation of all religion. The error of Protestantism made the first step on this path; that of Modernism makes the second; atheism makes the next.” On the Doctrine of the Modernists, Pope St. Pius X, 1907
 
Address to participants in the pilgrimage of Lutherans (commemorating the 500th anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation)19” Oct 13, 2016: “I am very happy to meet you on the occasion of your ecumenical pilgrimage which began in the land of Luther, Germany, and ended here at the See of the Bishop of Rome… The Apostle Paul tells us that, by virtue of our baptism, we all form the one Body of Christ. The different members, in fact, form one body. This is why we belong to each other and when one suffers, everyone suffers, when one rejoices, all rejoice (cf. 1 Cor 12:12, 26). Let us continue with confidence on our ecumenical journey… At the end of this month, God willing, I will go to Lund, Sweden, and together with the Lutheran World Federation, we will commemorate, after five centuries, the beginning of Luther’s reformation…” L’ Osservatore Romano, Oct 21, 2016, p. 11
 
Comment: How can Catholics commemorate one of the greatest disasters ever to befall the Church?
 
"The Reformation destroyed the unity of faith and ecclesiastical organization of the Christian peoples of Europe, cut many millions off from the true Catholic Church, and robbed them of the greatest portion of the salutary means for the cultivation and maintenance of the supernatural life. Incalculable harm was thereby wrought from the religious standpoint. The false fundamental doctrine of justification by faith alone, taught by the Reformers, produced a lamentable shallowness in religious life. Zeal for good works disappeared, the asceticism which the Church had practised from her foundation was despised, charitable and ecclesiastical objects were no longer properly cultivated, supernatural interests fell into the background, and naturalistic aspirations aiming at the purely mundane, became widespread. The denial of the Divinely instituted authority of the Church, both as regards doctrine and ecclesiastical government, opened wide the door to every eccentricity, gave rise to the endless division into sects and the never-ending disputes characteristic of Protestantism, and could not but lead to the complete unbelief which necessarily arises from the Protestant principles..." Catholic Encyclopedia, 1913, Results and Consequences of the Reformation

Sacrament of Confession
 
Vatican radio7 June 15, 2013: “True reconciliation means that God in Christ took on our sins and He became the sinner for us.  When we go to Confession, for example, it isn’t that we say our sin and God forgives us.  No, not that! We look for Jesus Christ and say:  ‘This is your sin, and I will sin again‘.  And Jesus likes that, because it was his mission:  to become the sinner for us, to liberate us.
 
In the Sacrament of Penance the repentant Christian confesses his sins to a duly authorized priest, who, standing in the place of God, pronounces the absolution by means of which they are forgiven.” The Catechism Explained (Spirago-Clarke, 1899), Sacrament of Penance
 
Q: How many conditions are necessary to make a good confession?
A: To make a good confession five things are necessary: (1) Examination of conscience; (2) Sorrow for having offended God; (3) A resolution of sinning no more; (4) Confession of our sins; (5) Satisfaction or penance” Catechism of Saint Pius X, The Sacrament of Penance

Sacrament of Marriage
 
Address to the Diocese of Rome’s Pastoral Congress, Q&A Session14, Jun 16, 2016: "....the great majority of our sacramental marriages are null. Because they say ‘yes, for the rest of my life!’ but they don’t know what they are saying. Because they have a different culture. They say it, they have good will, but they don’t know.”

On Heaven and Earth2, p. 114: Concerning same-sex marriage: “Religion has the right to give an opinion as long as it is in service to the people.” “The religious minister does not have the right to force anything on anyone’s private life. If God, in creation, ran the risk of making us free, who am I to get involved? We condemn spiritual harassment that takes place when a minister imposes directives, conduct, and demands in such a way that it takes away the freedom of the other person. God left the freedom to sin in our hands.” He later adds: “I insist that our opinion about the marriage between two people of the same sex is not based on religion, but rather on anthropology.
 
"Q: Which are the sins that are said to cry to God for vengeance?

Sex Education
 
Conversations with Jorge Bergoglio4, p. 111: “The Church is not opposed to sex education. Personally, I believe that it ought to be available throughout children’s upbringing, adapted to different age groups. In truth, the Church always provided sex education, although I acknowledge that it hasn’t always been adequate.
 
Another very grave danger is that naturalism which nowadays invades the field of education in that most delicate matter of purity of morals. Far too common is the error of those who with dangerous assurance and under an ugly term propagate a so-called sex-education, falsely imagining they can forearm youths against the dangers of sensuality by means purely natural, such as a foolhardy initiation and precautionary instruction for all indiscriminately, even in public; and, worse still, by exposing them at an early age to the occasions, in order to accustom them, so it is argued, and as it were to harden them against such dangers.” Pope Pius XI, Dec. 31, 1931

Teachings of Francis IScripture or Past Church Teaching
Atheism
On Heaven and Earth2, pp. 12-13: “I do not approach the relationship in order to proselytize, or convert the atheist; I respect him… nor would I say that his life is condemned, because I am convinced that I do not have the right to make a judgment about the honesty of that person… every man is the image of God, whether he is a believer or not."
 
"If any one deny the one true God, Creator and Lord of all things visible and invisible, let him be anathema" (Conc. Vatican., Sess. III, "De fide", can. i).
 
"If anyone shall have said that the one true God, our Creator and our Lord, cannot be known with certitude by those things which have been made, by the natural light of human reason: let him be anathema" (First Vatican Council, Sess III, can. 2/1: Denz. 1806; cf. D. 1785).
 
And to you who are troubled, rest with us when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven, with the angels of his power, in a flame of fire, giving vengeance to them who know not God, and who obey not the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, who shall suffer eternal punishment in destruction, from the face of the Lord, and from the glory of his power.” II Thessalonians I: 7-9
 
Francis I response to open letter3 published Sep 2013: “First of all, you ask if the God of the Christians forgives those who do not believe and do not seek faith. Given that - and this is fundamental - God's mercy has no limits if he who asks for mercy does so in contrition and with a sincere heart, the issue for those who do not believe in God is in obeying their own conscience. In fact, listening and obeying it, means deciding about what is perceived to be good or to be evil. The goodness or the wickedness of our behavior depends on this decision.
 
"...faith is the beginning of human salvation, the foundation, and the root of all Justification; without which it is impossible to please God..." Council of Trent, Chapter VIII

Blessed Trinity
Interview with the Italian newspaper La Repubblica1, September 24, 2013: “I believe in God, not in a Catholic God, there is no Catholic God, there is God and I believe in Jesus Christ, his incarnation.

Capital Punishment (The Death Penalty)
Letter to the President of the International Commission against the death penalty9, March 20, 2015: "Today capital punishment is unacceptable, however serious the condemned’s crime may have been. It is an offence to the inviolability of life and to the dignity of the human person which contradicts God’s plan for man and for society and his merciful justice, and it fails to conform to any just purpose of punishment.".....
 “All Christians and men of good will are thus called today to fight not only for the abolition of the death penalty, whether legal or illegal, and in all its forms, but also in order to improve prison conditions, with respect for the human dignity of the people deprived of their freedom

 
 
 
To participants in the meeting promoted by the pontifical Council for promoting the new evangelization24, Oct 11, 2017:  “It must be clearly stated that the death penalty is an inhumane measure that, regardless of how it is carried out, abases human dignity. It is per se contrary to the Gospel…"  L’Osservatore Romano, October 13, 2017, pp. 7,11
 
The same divine authority that forbids the killing of a human being establishes certain exceptions, as when God authorizes killing by a general law or when He gives an explicit commission to an individual for a limited time. The agent who executes the killing does not commit homicide; he is an instrument as is the sword with which he cuts. Therefore, it is in no way contrary to the commandment, 'Thou shalt not kill' to wage war at God's bidding, or for the representatives of public authority to put criminals to death, according to the law, that is, the will of the most just reason” St. Augustine, The City of God, Book 1, chapter 21
 
Therefore if a man be dangerous and infectious to the community, on account of some sin, it is praiseworthy and healthful that he be killed in order to safeguard the common good, since "a little leaven corrupteth the whole lump” (1 Cor. 5:6)” St. Thomas Aquinas, Summa Theologica, Whether It Is Lawful to Kill Sinners?
 
Even in the case of the death penalty the State does not dispose of the individual’s right to life. Rather public authority limits itself to depriving the offender of the good of life in expiation for his guilt, after he, through his crime, deprived himself of his own right to life” Pius XII, Address to the First International Congress of Histopathology of the Nervous System, 14 Sep 1952, XIV, 328
 
"The infliction of capital punishment is not contrary to the teaching of the Catholic Church, and the power of the State to visit upon culprits the penalty of death derives much authority from revelation and from the writings of theologians” Catholic Encyclopedia, Capital Punishment

Cohabitation / Concubinage
Address to the Diocese of Rome’s Pastoral Congress, Q&A Session14, Jun 16, 2016: “They prefer to cohabitate, and this is a challenge, a task. Not to ask ‘why don’t you marry?’ No, to accompany, to wait, and to help them to mature, help fidelity to mature.”........ “I’ve seen a lot of fidelity in these cohabitations, and I am sure that this is a real marriage, they have the grace of a real marriage because of their fidelity.”
 
“It is a grievous sin for unmarried men to have concubines ...Wherefore, the holy Synod, that it may by suitable remedies provide against this exceeding evil, ordains that these concubinaries, whether unmarried or married, of whatsoever state, dignity, and condition they may be, if, after having been three times admonished on this subject by the Ordinary, even ex officio, they shall not have put away their concubines, and have separated themselves from all connexion with them, they shall be smitten with excommunication; from which they shall not be absolved until they have really obeyed the admonition given them.” Council of Trent, Ch. VIII, Concubinage is severely punished
 
“13. But in all these affairs, one of your aims should be to instill in the faithful a greater aversion for sins which scandalize others; your priests should share this aim. You are aware of the increase in the number of those who sin in a scandalous manner: those who blaspheme the heavenly saints and the holy name of God as well; those who live in concubinage.....So, make the faithful consider the seriousness of sins of this kind and the heavy penalties for them, both for the guilt of the sin itself and for the spiritual danger in which they place their brothers by the infection of their bad example. For it is written: "Woe to the world because of scandals . . . Woe to that man by whom the scandal comes!" Pope Pius IX, On the Church in the Pontifical States, December 8, 1849
 
"The scandal of concubinage is removed by marriage, which should be made known to those who were scandalized, either by the pastor or by the parties themselves." Canon Law 1043
 
"Hence if both parties intended and expressed the intention in some way or other to enter upon a mere Concubinage, there would be no marriage." Canon Law 1082
 
"If a marriage is found invalid, as, for instance, among the Gallas, where slaves contract a contubernium or legalized concubinage, the parties must be separated until they are lawfully married" Canon Law 1084
 
"Therefore concubinage must be given up because incompatible with Christian morals" Canon Law 1124

ƈσmmυɳιsm
Conversations with Jorge Bergoglio4, p. 39: “It’s true that I was, like the rest of my family, a practicing Catholic. But my mind was not made solely for religious questions… I read Our Word and Proposals, a publication by the Communist Party, and I loved every article ever written by Leonidas Barletta, one of their best-known members…
 
"See to it, Venerable Brethren, that the Faithful do not allow themselves to be deceived! ƈσmmυɳιsm is intrinsically wrong, and no one who would save Christian civilization may collaborate with it in any undertaking whatsoever. Those who permit themselves to be deceived into lending their aid towards the triumph of ƈσmmυɳιsm in their own country, will be the first to fall victims of their error. And the greater the antiquity and grandeur of the Christian civilization in the regions where ƈσmmυɳιsm successfully penetrates, so much more devastating will be the hatred displayed by the godless" Encyclical On Atheistic ƈσmmυɳιsm by Pope Pius XI, 1937
 
"To this goal also tends the unspeakable doctrine of ƈσmmυɳιsm, as it is called, a doctrine most opposed to the very natural law. For if this doctrine were accepted, the complete destruction of everyone's laws, government, property, and even of human society itself would follow." Encyclical On Faith and Religion by Pope Pius IX, 1846

Contraception
In-flight interview from Mexico15, Feb 17, 2016: “The great Paul VI, in a difficult situation in Africa, permitted nuns to use a form of artificial contraceptives in cases of rape.....On the other hand, avoiding pregnancy is not an absolute evil. In certain cases, as in this one (the Zika virus outbreak), or in the one I mentioned of Blessed Paul VI, it was clear.”
 
"But no reason, however grave, may be put forward by which anything intrinsically against nature may become conformable to nature and morally good. Since, therefore, the conjugal act is destined primarily by nature for the begetting of children, those who in exercising it deliberately frustrate its natural power and purpose sin against nature and commit a deed which is shameful and intrinsically vicious."
"...any use whatsoever of matrimony exercised in such a way that the act is deliberately frustrated in its natural power to generate life is an offense against the law of God and of nature, and those who indulge in such are branded with the guilt of a grave sin."
"...No difficulty can arise that justifies the putting aside of the law of God which forbids all acts intrinsically evil." Pope Pius XI, Encyclical On Christian Marriage, Dec 31, 1930
 
"A negative precept of natural law which prohibits a thing intrinsically evil can never be lawfully transgressed not even under the influence of the fear of death, (Lib. I, tr. ii, c. iv, dub. 2, n. 1) So that it is not lawful to do a thing which is wrong in itself, even to escape death" Catholic Encyclopedia, Hermann Busembaum

Conversion/Proselytizing
Church of the Assumption, Tbilisi, Georgia16, Oct 1, 2016: “Never fight! Let the theologians study the abstract realities of theology. But what should I do with a friend, neighbour, an Orthodox person? Be open, be a friend. ‘But should I make efforts to convert him or her?’ There is a very grave sin against ecumenism: proselytism. We should never proselytize the Orthodox!” L’ Osservatore Romano, October 7, 2016, p. 11
 
Comment: If proselytizing is a grave sin, why did all of the Catholic missionaries throughout the history of the Church dedicate their lives to it?
 
"… St. Francis De Sales had volunteered to re-evangelize the Chablais, a region in France south of Geneva consisting of some 72,000 souls, almost all of whom were now Calvinists, since their ancestors had succumbed to Protestantism 60 years before… St. Francis' first few months saw mostly failure, as he spent a very cold winter tramping over the countryside, receiving a frigid welcome and sometimes sleeping in hay lofts at night. So he resorted to writing pamphlets - which he posted on walls and slipped under doors. By this method he was able to reach the souls he was after, such that at the end of 4 years, almost the entire population of 72,000 had returned to the ancient Catholic Faith." The Catholic Controversy, St. Francis De Sales
 
Discourse to Priests, Men and Women Religious, Seminarians21 Sep 9, 2017: “On one of my trips, World Youth Day in Poland [Krakow 2016], during a lunch with 15 young people and the Archbishop, one of them asked me: ‘What can I tell my young friend who is an atheist, who does not believe, what reasoning can I use?’. And it struck me how to reply: ‘Look, the last thing you must do is say anything’. He just stared at me.” L’Osservatore Romano, Sep 22, 2017, p. 10
 
"Having protected their persons (the Jҽωs), St. Vincent now proceeded to the salvation of their souls. He preached to them, held controversial meetings with the most learned of them, and converted them by the thousand. In 1391, he converted 7,000 Jҽωs in Valencia alone, and 10,000 more throughout the kingdom." The Angel of the Judgment - A Life of St. Vincent Ferrer (imprimatur 1953)

Ecumenism & Religious Freedom
Address in St. Peter's Square5, May 18, 2013: “… promote religious freedom for everyone, everyone! Every man and every woman must be free in his or her profession of religion, whatever it may be.L’ Osservatore Romano, May 22, 2013, p. 11.
 
General Audience with representatives of the world’s various religions11, Oct 28, 2015: "the Church regards with esteem the believers of all religions, appreciating their spiritual and moral commitment…Now, to conclude this Audience, I invite everyone, each one on his or her own, to pray in silence. May each one do so according to his or her own religious tradition.”
L’ Osservatore Romano, October 30, 2015, pp. 3-4
"The Catholic Church is alone in keeping the true worship. This is the fount of truth, this the house of Faith, this the temple of God: if any man enter not here, or if any man go forth from it, he is a stranger to the hope of life and salvation.” Encyclical "Mortalium Animos" (On Religious Unity), by Pope Pius XI in 1928
 
"Certainly such attempts can nowise be approved by Catholics, founded as they are on that false opinion which considers all religions to be more or less good and praiseworthy, since they all in different ways manifest and signify that sense which is inborn in us all, and by which we are led to God and to the obedient acknowledgment of His rule. Not only are those who hold this opinion in error and deceived, but also in distorting the idea of true religion they reject it, and little by little turn aside to naturalism and atheism, as it is called; from which it clearly follows that one who supports those who hold these theories and attempt to realize them, is altogether abandoning the divinely revealed religion." Encyclical "Mortalium Animos" (On Religious Unity), by Pope Pius XI in 1928
 
Evangelii Gaudium6, November, 2013: “Non-Christians, by God’s gracious initiative, when they are faithful to their own consciences, can live ‘justified by the grace of God’, and thus be ‘associated to the paschal mystery of Jesus Christ

Address to the representatives of the Yazidi community23, Jan 24, 2018: “Every person has the right to profess his or her own religious creed freely and without constraint…” L’ Osservatore Romano, January 26, 2018, p. 1
"Now We consider another abundant source of the evils with which the Church is afflicted at present: indifferentism. This perverse opinion is spread on all sides by the fɾαυd of the wicked who claim that it is possible to obtain the eternal salvation of the soul by the profession of any kind of religion, as long as morality is maintained. Surely, in so clear a matter, you will drive this dєαdlу error far from the people committed to your care. With the admonition of the apostle that "there is one God, one faith, one baptism"." Encyclical On Liberalism and Religious Indifferentism, Pope Gregory XVI, 1832
 
Condemned: Every man is free to embrace and profess that religion which, guided by the light of reason, he shall consider true.” The Syllabus of Errors 1864 - Pope Pius IX
 
Condemned: Man may, in the observance of any religion whatever, find the way of eternal salvation, and arrive at eternal salvation.” The Syllabus of Errors 1864 - Pope Pius IX
 
Vatican radio message8, May 24, 2015: “I feel like saying something that may sound controversial, or even heretical, perhaps. But there is someone who “knows” that, despite our differences, we are one. It is he who is persecuting us. It is he who is persecuting Christians today, he who is anointing us with (the blood of) martyrdom. He knows that Christians are disciples of Christ: that they are one, that they are brothers! He doesn’t care if they are Evangelicals, or Orthodox, Lutherans, Catholics or Apostolic…he doesn’t care! They are Christians.
 
“…because the preceding errors and many others are contained in the books or writings of Martin Luther, we likewise condemn, reprobate, and reject completely the books and all the writings and sermons of the said Martin, whether in Latin or any other language, containing the said errors or any one of them; and we wish them to be regarded as utterly condemned, reprobated, and rejected. We forbid each and every one of the faithful of either sex, in virtue of holy obedience and under the above penalties to be incurred automatically, to read, assert, preach, praise, print, publish, or defend them. They will incur these penalties if they presume to uphold them in any way, personally or through another or others, directly or indirectly, tacitly or explicitly, publicly or occultly, either in their own homes or in other public or private places.” Condemning the Errors of Martin Luther (Exsurge Domine), Pope Leo X, June 15, 1520

Evolution of Doctrine
To participants in the meeting promoted by the pontifical Council for promoting the new evangelization24, Oct 11, 2017: “Doctrine cannot be preserved without allowing it to develop, nor can it be tied to an interpretation that is rigid and immutable without demeaning the working of the Holy Spirit.
L’ Osservatore Romano, October 13, 2017, pp. 7,11
 
I sincerely hold that the doctrine of faith was handed down to us from the apostles through the orthodox Fathers in exactly the same meaning and always in the same purport. Therefore, I entirely reject the heretical misrepresentation that dogmas evolve and change from one meaning to another different from the one which the Church held previously.” Pope St. Pius X, Oath against Modernism
 
"Nor do We merely desire that Catholics should shrink from the errors of Modernism, but also from the tendencies or what is called the spirit of Modernism. Those who are infected by that spirit develop a keen dislike for all that savours of antiquity and become eager searchers after novelties in everything: in the way in which they carry out religious functions, in the ruling of Catholic institutions, and even in private exercises of piety. Therefore it is Our will that the law of our forefathers should still be held sacred: "Let there be no innovation; keep to what has been handed down." Pope Benedict XV, Ad Beatissimi Apostolorum (Appealing for Peace), Nov 1, 1914

False Gods
In 2012, Cardinal Bergoglio held an interreligious prayer meeting in the Cathedral of Buenos Aires with the leaders of false religions including Judaism and Protestant sects. In this prayer meeting he allowed the members of these false religions to pray aloud to their false gods in the Cathedral. Bergoglio has been known to organize other similar meetings (similar to his two predecessors) that are well documented and photographed in the news."First Commandment of God: I am the Lord thy God, thou shall not have strange gods before Me"
 
Q: What else does the First Commandment forbid?
A: The First Commandment also forbids all dealings with the devil, and all association with anti-Christian sects.
 The Catechism of Saint Pius X, The First Commandment

 
When it is said: Thou shalt not have strange gods before me, it is equivalent to saying: Thou shalt worship me the true God; thou shalt not worship strange gods.” The Catechism of Trent, The First Commandment
 
“As the true God can tolerate no strange gods, the true Church of Christ can tolerate no strange Churches beside herself, or, what amounts to the same, she can recognize none as theoretically justified.” Catholic Encyclopedia, Religious Toleration

Hell
Interview with the Italian newspaper La Repubblica25, Mar 28, 2018: When asked where bad souls are punished, Francis replied: “They are not punished, those who repent obtain the forgiveness of God and enter the rank of souls who contemplate him, but those who do not repent and cannot therefore be forgiven disappear. There is no hell, there is the disappearance of sinful souls.
 
"Moreover, we declare that according to the common arrangement of God, the souls of those who depart in actual mortal sin immєdιαtely after their death descend to hell where they are tortured by infernal punishments..." Pope Benedict XII, Benedictus Deus, 1336

Islam
Evangelii Gaudium6, November, 2013: “We must never forget that they [the Moslems] ‘profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together with us they adore the one, merciful God, who will judge humanity on the last day’.
 
Address to the President of Religious Affairs in Turkey and Muslim and Christian political and religious leaders12, Nov 28, 2014: "We, Muslims and Christians, are the bearers of spiritual treasures of inestimable worth. Among these we recognize some shared elements, though lived according to the traditions of each, such as the adoration of the All-Merciful God, reference to the Patriarch Abraham, prayer, almsgiving, fasting… elements which, when lived sincerely, can transform life and provide a sure foundation for dignity and fraternity."
 
Comment: Catholics and Muslims do not adore the same God (Catholics adore the Blessed Trinity):
 
"But he that shall deny me before men, I will also deny him before my Father who is in heaven." Matthew 10:33
 
“For he that shall be ashamed of me and of my words, of him the Son of man shall be ashamed, when he shall come in his majesty, and that of his Father, and of the holy angels.” Luke 9:26
 
"Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father." 1 John 2:23
 
“Q. 1400. Name some of the more essential religious truths we must know and believe. 2.(2) That in God there are three Divine Persons: the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost, and these Divine Persons are called the Blessed Trinity.” Baltimore Catechism

Therefore let all the house of Israel know most certainly, that God hath made both Lord and Christ, this same Jesus, whom you have crucified.” Acts of the Apostles (2:36)
 
“And Pilate seeing that he prevailed nothing, but that rather a tumult was made; taking water washed his hands before the people (the Jҽωs), saying: I am innocent of the blood of this just man; look you to it. And the whole people answering, said: His blood be upon us and our children.” Matt 27:24-25
 
Francis I response to open letter3 published Sep 2013: “What I can say, with the Apostle Paul, is that God has never stopped believing in the alliance made with Israel and that, through the terrible trials of these past centuries, the Jҽωs have kept their faith in God.Go ye into the whole world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

Omnipotence of God

Prayer in Common
Conversations with Jorge Bergoglio4, p. 208: “Not long ago I was in a ѕуηαgσgυє taking part in a ceremony. I prayed a lot and, while praying, I heard a phrase from one of the books of wisdom that had slipped my mind: ‘Lord, may I bear mockery in silence.’ It gave me much peace and joy.”
 
"If any ecclesiastic or layman shall go into the ѕуηαgσgυє of the Jҽωs or to the meeting-houses of the heretics to join in prayer with them, let them be deposed and deprived of communion. If any Bishops or Priest or Deacon shall join in prayer with heretics, let him be suspended from Communion" Third Council of Constantinople
 
"It is not permitted at all for the faithful to assist in any active manner at or to have any part in the worship of non-Catholics." 1917 Code of Canon Law, Canon 1258
 
“The Code declares the following persons as suspect of heresy: 1. The propagators of heresy and those who participate with non-Catholics in divinis (Can. 2316)” Commentary on Canon Law (Augustine, 1918)
 
"Speaking generally, the faithful are forbidden to take part in any religious rites, considered as such, of pagans, Mohammedans, or Jҽωs, and all the more to practice them through a kind of survival of their primitive superstitions. If this prohibition is inspired not so much by a fear of the danger of perversion as by the law forbidding the faithful to communicate in sacris with non-Catholics, aversion to false religions and especially from idol worship justifies the rigor of the law" Catholic Encyclopedia, Infidels
 
 
Common Declaration with Archbishop of Canterbury17, Oct 5, 2016: “Nor should our (Catholic and Anglican) differences come in the way of our common prayer: not only can we pray together, we must pray together, giving voice to our shared faith and joy in the Gospel of Christ, the ancient Creeds, and the power of God’s love, made present in the Holy Spirit…” L’ Osservatore Romano, Oct 14, 2016, pp. 7-8

“So, Venerable Brethren, it is clear why this Apostolic See has never allowed its subjects to take part in the assemblies of non-Catholics: for the union of Christians can only be promoted by promoting the return to the one true Church of Christ of those who are separated from it” Pope Pius XI, Mortalium Animos (1928)

CONDEMNED: Protestantism is nothing more than another form of the same true Christian religion, in which form it is given to please God equally as in the Catholic Church” Syllabus of Errors, Pope Pius IX, 1864
 
These reasons suffice to show superabundantly by how many roads Modernism leads to atheism and to the annihilation of all religion. The error of Protestantism made the first step on this path; that of Modernism makes the second; atheism makes the next.” On the Doctrine of the Modernists, Pope St. Pius X, 1907
 
Address to participants in the pilgrimage of Lutherans (commemorating the 500th anniversary of the Lutheran Reformation)19” Oct 13, 2016: “I am very happy to meet you on the occasion of your ecumenical pilgrimage which began in the land of Luther, Germany, and ended here at the See of the Bishop of Rome… The Apostle Paul tells us that, by virtue of our baptism, we all form the one Body of Christ. The different members, in fact, form one body. This is why we belong to each other and when one suffers, everyone suffers, when one rejoices, all rejoice (cf. 1 Cor 12:12, 26). Let us continue with confidence on our ecumenical journey… At the end of this month, God willing, I will go to Lund, Sweden, and together with the Lutheran World Federation, we will commemorate, after five centuries, the beginning of Luther’s reformation…” L’ Osservatore Romano, Oct 21, 2016, p. 11
 
Comment: How can Catholics commemorate one of the greatest disasters ever to befall the Church?
 
"The Reformation destroyed the unity of faith and ecclesiastical organization of the Christian peoples of Europe, cut many millions off from the true Catholic Church, and robbed them of the greatest portion of the salutary means for the cultivation and maintenance of the supernatural life. Incalculable harm was thereby wrought from the religious standpoint. The false fundamental doctrine of justification by faith alone, taught by the Reformers, produced a lamentable shallowness in religious life. Zeal for good works disappeared, the asceticism which the Church had practised from her foundation was despised, charitable and ecclesiastical objects were no longer properly cultivated, supernatural interests fell into the background, and naturalistic aspirations aiming at the purely mundane, became widespread. The denial of the Divinely instituted authority of the Church, both as regards doctrine and ecclesiastical government, opened wide the door to every eccentricity, gave rise to the endless division into sects and the never-ending disputes characteristic of Protestantism, and could not but lead to the complete unbelief which necessarily arises from the Protestant principles..." Catholic Encyclopedia, 1913, Results and Consequences of the Reformation

Sacrament of Confession
Vatican radio7 June 15, 2013: “True reconciliation means that God in Christ took on our sins and He became the sinner for us.  When we go to Confession, for example, it isn’t that we say our sin and God forgives us.  No, not that! We look for Jesus Christ and say:  ‘This is your sin, and I will sin again‘.  And Jesus likes that, because it was his mission:  to become the sinner for us, to liberate us.
 
In the Sacrament of Penance the repentant Christian confesses his sins to a duly authorized priest, who, standing in the place of God, pronounces the absolution by means of which they are forgiven.” The Catechism Explained (Spirago-Clarke, 1899), Sacrament of Penance
 
Q: How many conditions are necessary to make a good confession?
A: To make a good confession five things are necessary: (1) Examination of conscience; (2) Sorrow for having offended God; (3) A resolution of sinning no more; (4) Confession of our sins; (5) Satisfaction or penance” Catechism of Saint Pius X, The Sacrament of Penance

Sacrament of Marriage
Address to the Diocese of Rome’s Pastoral Congress, Q&A Session14, Jun 16, 2016: "....the great majority of our sacramental marriages are null. Because they say ‘yes, for the rest of my life!’ but they don’t know what they are saying. Because they have a different culture. They say it, they have good will, but they don’t know.”

Do not err: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor the effeminate, nor liers with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor railers, nor extortioners, shall possess the kingdom of God." 1 Corinthians 6:9-10
 
“Neither fornicators nor adulterers, nor the effeminate nor sơdơmites shall possess the kingdom of God.” Catechism of the Council of Trent, The Sixth commandment, Other Sins Against Chastity Are Forbidden
 
On Heaven and Earth2, p. 114: Concerning same-sex marriage: “Religion has the right to give an opinion as long as it is in service to the people.” “The religious minister does not have the right to force anything on anyone’s private life. If God, in creation, ran the risk of making us free, who am I to get involved? We condemn spiritual harassment that takes place when a minister imposes directives, conduct, and demands in such a way that it takes away the freedom of the other person. God left the freedom to sin in our hands.” He later adds: “I insist that our opinion about the marriage between two people of the same sex is not based on religion, but rather on anthropology.
 
"Q: Which are the sins that are said to cry to God for vengeance?
A: The sins that are said to cry to God for vengeance are these four: (1) Willful murder; (2) The sin of sơdơmy; (3) Oppression of the poor; (4) Defɾαυding laborers of their wages." The Catechism of Saint Pius X, The Vices and Other Very Grievous Sins

Sex Education
Conversations with Jorge Bergoglio4, p. 111: “The Church is not opposed to sex education. Personally, I believe that it ought to be available throughout children’s upbringing, adapted to different age groups. In truth, the Church always provided sex education, although I acknowledge that it hasn’t always been adequate.
 
Another very grave danger is that naturalism which nowadays invades the field of education in that most delicate matter of purity of morals. Far too common is the error of those who with dangerous assurance and under an ugly term propagate a so-called sex-education, falsely imagining they can forearm youths against the dangers of sensuality by means purely natural, such as a foolhardy initiation and precautionary instruction for all indiscriminately, even in public; and, worse still, by exposing them at an early age to the occasions, in order to accustom them, so it is argued, and as it were to harden them against such dangers.” Pope Pius XI, Dec. 31, 1931

ѕυιcιdє

But I still respect the one who commits ѕυιcιdє; he is a person who could not overcome the contradictions in his life. I do not reject him.
 
"Q: Why does God, in the Fifth Commandment, forbid the taking of one's own life or ѕυιcιdє?
A: In the Fifth Commandment God forbids ѕυιcιdє, because man is not the master of his own life no more than of the life of another. Hence the Church punishes ѕυιcιdє by deprivation of Christian burial.” Catechism of Saint Pius X, The Fifth Commandment

(https://www.barnhardt.biz/2021/02/20/swine-hellfire-and-sodo-imagery-the-bernardin-bergoglio-pectoral-cross-is-an-icon-of-the-antichrist-read-on-for-disposal-instructions/)


Okay.  Because I’m now morally certain, I’m going to go ahead and call the Bernardin-Bergoglio pectoral cross as an icon of the Antichrist.  There’s just too much evidence.

Mark Docherty has made a post at his place that is a compendium of everything about the Antichrist icon so far (https://nonvenipacem.com/2021/02/19/visibility-god-is-not-a-jerk-the-signs-are-literally-everywhere-wake-up/), with all of the pictures.  It is a great resource to help spread the word on this.

Now that thousands and thousands of eyes are on this thing, several more horrifying motifs have been identified.

First, the animal on the far left is a swine.  Look at the thickness of the body and especially the hindquarters.  No sheep looks like that. That’s a ham if ever I saw one.  As Mark Docherty said, “I smell bacon.”  I smell bacon too.  Definitely.  Swine NEVER have any positive connotation in Scripture or iconography. In fact, because Our Lord cast the demons into the herd of swine, who then promptly committed ѕυιcιdє by running en masse off a cliff, swine have a very, very consistent tie to the demonic and to hell and damnation.



(https://www.barnhardt.biz/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/Screen-Shot-2021-02-20-at-18.04.52.png)


That’s a pig, folks.

Next, the “grass”.  A lot of people think it looks more like flames.  Especially since it goes ABOVE the animals.  I agree. It subsumes the animals completely.  They aren’t standing upon it.

Finally, the tunic.  A BUNCH of people emailed in about the tunic.  Not only is there a phallus shape front and center, but the folds on the viewer’s right look suspiciously like a hand grasping the phallus.

Now here is what is going to happen, so you’re prepared.  Any discussion of this will be the target of GASLIGHTING.  “Mentally ill cօռspιʀαcʏ theorists,” “filthy-minded sex perverts,” blah, blah, blah.  You know yourself.  Are you a filthy-minded sex pervert?  Probably not.  So don’t be bothered by the GASLIGHTING.  Are the things we have described either clearly visible (like the backwards-facing leg (https://www.barnhardt.biz/2021/02/19/the-satanic-bernardin-bergoglio-pectoral-cross-why-are-the-feet-facing-different-directions-because-the-figure-isnt-christ-it-is-the-antichrist/) and the swine on the left) or sufficiently plausible as to factor into the calculus?  Of course they are.  DON’T FALL FOR GASLIGHTING.

Additionally, let’s think tactically from the enemy’s perspective for a moment.  If you were Bernardin, an actual Satanist and infiltrator to the highest levels of the Catholic Church, wouldn’t you get your kicks from wearing something, like this pectoral cross image, that contained satanic iconography, but at the same time was subtle enough for you to wear openly, mocking God and the faithful as you walked around, laughing interiorly at the “stupid rubes” who couldn’t see what you were LITERALLY dangling in front of them?  Of course.  THAT’S THE ENTIRE POINT.

The backstory on Antipope Bergoglio’s connection to this wretched thing as having originated with him doesn’t check out.  Bernardin was CLEARLY wearing this thing (the swine is just visible) before he ordained Wilton Gregory a bishop in ARSH 1983.  We know this from THIS picture of Gregory emcee-ing Bernardin’s Mass.  Bishops don’t emcee outside of Papal Masses.



(https://www.barnhardt.biz/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/img_3694-1024x650.jpg)

The “artist”, whose signature is beneath the feet of the figure, was a sculptor from Genoa, Italy named Antonio Vedele.  Vedele is the man who sculpted the image as a mold, which was then cast into metal.  Apparently, Vedele, who died in ARSH 1997, passed the original mold to a student of his during the 1970s named Giuseppe Albrizzi who then cast more of them.  Bergoglio started wearing his copy while Archbishop of Buenos Aires in the 1990s.  But it is important to note that the Vedele Antichrist pectoral cross did NOT originate with Bergoglio in Buenos Aires, but was also worn for decades previously by the KNOWN SATANIST PEDOPHILE sơdơmITE Cardinal Joseph Bernardin (https://www.barnhardt.biz/2014/07/28/the-one-about-the-bernardin-alinsky-σbαmα-nexus/).  I doubt Antipope Bergoglio’s cross is Bernardin’s, as Bernardin was probably buried with his in ARSH 1996. But they are absolutely the cast from the same Vedele mold. They are identical.

I can find nothing about Antonio Vedele except his dates (ARSH 1930-1997) and the fact that he was a sculptor, working mostly in silver, in Genoa.

WHAT TO DO IF YOU HAVE AN ICON OF THE ANTICHRIST/”POPE FRANCIS CROSS”

Folks, this icon of the Antichrist has been sold AGGRESSIVELY in many forms for the past eight years as “The Pope Francis Cross”.  It is sold as a pendant, keychain fob, and most sickeningly, it is used where the Crucifix should be on “Pope Francis Rosaries”.  ANYONE who has bought any Rosaries, especially souvenir Rosaries from Rome or any other pilgrimage site or church gift shop, needs to check and make sure this satanic image is NOT in their home. There are countless THOUSANDS of these things polluting the planet. Maybe millions.

FOLKS, THIS IS TOTALLY UNCHARTED TERRITORY. NEVER BEFORE IN HISTORY HAS ANYTHING LIKE THIS EVER HAPPENED, SO YES, WE NEED TO DEMONSTRATE INTELLECTUAL SELF-SUFFICIENCY IN THIS SITUATION AND UNDERSTAND THAT THERE IS NO PLAYBOOK FOR DESTROYING “OFFICIAL” SACRAMENTALS WITH SATANIC IMAGERY.

BECAUSE THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED BEFORE.

IF you have an icon of the Antichrist under the “Pope Francis Cross” brand, here are instructions for disposing of it.

IF IT IS A ROSARY:

Break the rosary into pieces (metal clippers to break the chain) so that it is unusable as a Rosary.  If you can, damage and deface the Antichrist icon portion specifically.  Then, DISPOSE OF IT IN RUNNING WATER.  For most people this means throwing it off a bridge.

Our Lady is not only not going to be offended by you destroying a Rosary with an icon of the Antichrist (and probably an image of the Antipope) on it, I’m sure she will be grateful.  Just make sure you have another Rosary to use, and if your Rosary isn’t blessed, GET IT BLESSED!

IF IT IS A PENDANT OR KEYCHAIN:

Deface and destroy it as best you can.  If it is a silver pendant, consider asking a jeweler to melt it down. Then THROW WHATEVER IS LEFT INTO RUNNING WATER.

As always, I hope this helps.

Our Lady, Undoer of Knots, pray for us.

Lord Jesus Christ, the Good Shepherd, have mercy on us.

So the writings that is posted by 54rosary are nothing but straws.  I pity you!


For your information, the term sedevacantist is a CATHOLIC TERM, approved by the Papacy who in the past even put out a stamp with those words, SEDEVACANTIST.


Terms that are used (within the faith today)  that are novelty are NOVUS Order, R&R along with other initials, which seem to be growing in numbers, as now I see Bennvacantism or whatever,   I am not objecting to SSPX in general just making a point about newness.

I'm okay with you taking pity on me. I could use it!

Not to worry, Myrna. Even though I complain about sedeism, I believe that the Resistance will become, eventually, sedevacantist, since the sedes are determined to take it over. That will happen, but it will likely be after Bishop Williamson and Bp. Faure go to their eternal reward. Probably not before that. So take heart! 

The sedes aren't going to allow the Resistance to exist forever, as we can see daily on this forum. They will win in the end, because they will be allowed to.

Myrna, It may be the size of the print, wide spacing and block letters which were downthumbed. There was a very recent thread on this.

54Rosary's message is an excellent message.

Thank you Nadir, I am sure you are correct, I apologize.  
Title: Re: BERGOGLIO'S A CREEP-PROOF
Post by: 54rosary on February 22, 2021, 11:16:26 AM
I [Mrs. 54rosary] am not so sure that Nadir is correct.  The fact is that we [Mr. and Mrs. 54rosary]  have been noticing a seemingly increase in the number of  writings and responses on CathInfo that could be identified as prideful, arrogant, and not of good will.  This makes me think that, along with the rest of the world, there is possible infiltration as the cause.

There was a great deal of the prideful, arrogant, and ill will associated with a down thumbing toward RomanCatholic1953 that was totally uncalled for.

It is one thing to down thumb and another to do it in the wrong situation such as here regarding the one in this post pursuant to the Blessed Virgin's plan for us and also against RomanCatholic as was the case.  It all matters for sure.  

We prayed for the poor souls who down thumbed here and will pray again.  Generally, we pray for all those on CathInfo and their families as well.

It would have been a good idea that the person would reply that the problem was the block letters and wide spacing.  In any case such as that down thumbed reply in this post being discussed , I wish that I could always spread certain beautiful messages in BIG LETTERS.

For the record, a good deal of the time I write my postings/responses on word, and when I copy and paste them on CathInfo, the words enlarge, the spacing is different, and other various anomalies happen that are not the same as the original writing that I did.   

In addition, we are not aware of the recent thread about this topic of sizes of letters, etc. because we do not follow every thread because of the time that this would take.

Also, I enjoy writing in various styles, colors, and sizes.  If there is something wrong with this in the ideas and minds of some, I am very surprised.

54rosary,  I myself, some time ago, posted here on a regular basis, however, I have been away for quite a while.  Having said that, I also am not aware that different fonts were the reason for a downer, it did seem petty.  Thank you for your observations.


I agree that just like the Church with VII infiltration, these forums are also contaminated, they certainly seem that way when I see writings, quotes et al, just ignored as if they were wasted words by Catholics that people like you take your good time to post.

 
Don't stop, since many lurkers do read these forums and God is pleased with you for your Catholic works.

Oh and BTW thank you as you said, you prayed for all here, I appreciate the prayers!

Youth Synod starts under the symbol of witchcraft
It was shocking to see the photo above in the news report in the Vatican organ L'Osservatore Romano (October 4, 2018, p. 8) showing the Mass inaugurating the Youth Synod (http://www.synod2018.va/content/synod2018/en.html) in Rome. The ceremony is staged as if the strange staff in the foreground were the lenses through which we should interpret it. The photographer captured the power of that symbol quite well.
 
 That forked staff was given to Francis on August 11, 2018, during a meeting with youth he held at the Circus Maximus (https://traditioninaction.org/ʀɛʋօʟutιօnPhotos/A798-Gyn_Les.htm), below, first row at left. He chose to use it at the opening Mass of the Youth Synod, first row right, second row.
 
 At first glance, we could think that this is just another progressivist extravaganza. However, when we examine the forked staff carefully, we see that it is very similar to the staff used in witchcraft, which is called a stang (http://www.patheos.com/blogs/byathameandstang/2016/08/the-stang/).
 
 Below, we posted photos of several stangs used in witchcraft so that the reader can evaluate how similar they are to Francis' staff.
 
 So, we have the progressivist Pope making another of his insinuations. This time, however, it contains an implicit approval of witchcraft, that is, the cult to the Devil. We know that it is not completely verified that Francis is aware of all the implications of the use if this symbol. But then, with this Pope what is entirely clear?
 
 This is another episode that lets us wonder whether he is the Vicar of Christ or the vicar of the Archenemy of Christ...

Los Angeles, Calif., Jul 22, 2015 / 04:27 pm MT (CNA (https://www.catholicnewsagency.com)).- A sharp eye would have noticed that L.A.’s three auxiliary bishops-elect were wearing identical pectoral crosses.

The pectoral crosses are identical to another bishop’s — the Bishop of Rome.

“They are Pope Francis bishops,” Archbishop José H. Gomez said in the sacristy of the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels after the July 21 press conference.
“They were a gift,” he added, explaining with a gesture that he’d given the pectoral crosses to the bishops-elect himself.
In many ways, the new shepherds reflect the Holy Father’s papacy.

Pope Francis has named Father Robert Barron, Msgr. Joseph V. Brennan and Msgr. David O’Connell as auxiliary bishops for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles. The new auxiliary bishops will join Archbishop Gomez, other auxiliary bishops, priests and deacons in serving the faithful of the largest archdiocese in the United States.

“I believe each of these new auxiliary bishops will help us in our mission here in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles — the beautiful mission we have of sharing the love of God and the message of Jesus Christ and promoting human dignity and mercy and justice in our society,” Archbishop Gomez said during the press conference.

“I know all three of our new bishops and I could not be happier,” the archbishop said.

Msgr. Brennan has served as vicar general and moderator of the curia of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles since 2013. “He is my vicar general and moderator of the curia, which means he is kind of like a ‘CEO’ and ‘COO,’” the archbishop said. “It’s a big job and Msgr. Brennan handles it with grace and true concern for people’s needs. He is a good man and a thoughtful leader.”

He also never aspired to be anything but a pastor. In an interview with The Tidings, Msgr. Brennan said that he’d hoped one day he could return to being a pastor at parish, but with this appointment, it seems unlikely.

“In this position I’ve felt from the beginning that what I have — in fact all I have — to bring is the pastoral sense,” he said. “I don’t have the degrees, I don’t have the training. It’s pastoral experience that’s been the highlight of my life so far.”

So too with Pope Francis — a pontiff who never aspired to be such and who’s message had renewed the call for priests “to be shepherds living with the smell of their sheep.”

“Msgr. O’Connell is a native of Ireland and has served the inner city and South Central L.A.,” the archbishop explained. “He is also a dedicated pastor with a great concern for the spiritual life of the faithful.”

Msgr. O’Connell is a leader on issues like immigration reform, education, unemployment, housing, violence and finding alternatives to gangs for young people, the archbishop said.

Bishop-elect O’Connell’s emphasis on the poor is akin to Pope Francis’ — both as a priest and bishop in Argentina, but also now at the Vatican. Like Bishop-elect Brennan, O’Connell was perplexed by his appointment as auxiliary bishop.

“Maybe Pope Francis was looking for a certain profile, and I guess I do have some of the characteristics of what he’s looking for,” he admitted. “From what he’s writing and what he’s doing and what he’s teaching us, I suppose I do have some of those characteristics, yeah.”

As a member of the the Together in Mission Board as well as the Archdiocesan Finance Council, he insists on financial responsibility. And as a pastor, he made sure his parish held events like the Stations of the Cross and Las Posadas in the community, not on church grounds.

Father Barron has served as rector of Mundelein Seminary and president of University of St. Mary of the Lake in Mundelein, Illinois, since 2012. His “Catholicism” TV series and his Word on Fire mєdια ministry are hallmarks of the New Evangelization.

"He is also the author of many books and has an important online mєdια ministry. He has even had a television series on PBS about the beauty of the Catholic faith and God’s plan for creation,” the archbishop said. "So I think God has sent him to the right place — the mєdια capital of the world."
Father Barron is second only to Pope Francis as the most-followed Catholic leader on social mєdια.

“‘I very much identify with Pope Francis’ call for the New Evangelization, which is very much a continuation of the call that began with St. John Paul II and continued through Benedict,” Father Barron said.

“For a long time, what I’ve tried to do in my own work is lead with the positive, lead with the joyful, lead with the articulation of the life,” he said.
It is clear, the archbishop said, that Pope Francis understands the needs of the Church, both in Los Angeles and across the United States.

"In the Catholic Church, we believe that every bishop is ordained to carry on the mission that Jesus gave to his apostles,” the archbishop said.

The Archdiocese of Los Angeles comprises 8,762 square miles in Southern California. It has a total population of 11,518,233 people, of whom 4,362,469, or 38 percent, are Catholic. It is the largest diocese by Catholic population in the United States. The archdiocese has four other active auxiliary bishops and two other retired ones.

More “hidden pictures” in the Bernardin-Bergoglio icon of the Antichrist


Do you remember Highlights Magazine from childhood? One of my favorite regular features in Highlights was the “Hidden Pictures” page. Well, it appears that Antonio Vedele liked hidden pictures too, so much so that he put them in his so-called pectoral cross, which we have already established is actually an icon of the Antichrist. (https://www.barnhardt.biz/2021/02/20/swine-hellfire-and-sodo-imagery-the-bernardin-bergoglio-pectoral-cross-is-an-icon-of-the-antichrist-read-on-for-disposal-instructions/)

These two images came over the transom last evening:

First, let’s look at the empty space between the figure’s legs. What do we see looking back at us? An owl. Owls are a very common totem of the occult and witchcraft.

(https://www.barnhardt.biz/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/img_3743.jpg)Hoot hoot, said the owl.

Now let’s look at the head of the figure. Everyone has noticed that it has a terrible zombie-like appearance with its empty eye sockets and frightening death mask expression. True. But what if you were wearing the icon of the Antichrist as a pectoral cross, like the Satanist Cardinal Bernardin or as Antipope Bergoglio wears it? What would you see if you looked down at it?

The head of the figure when viewed upside down and from above becomes the hideous grinning face of a demon.

(https://www.barnhardt.biz/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/img_3746.jpg)

“Keep up the good work, Jorge.”

Finally, it is worth noting that other people have seen all of the things that we have pointed out. How do we know? Because there are “corrected” versions of the “Pope Francis Cross” for sale. Take a look at this “corrected” example and list all of the corrections:
(https://www.barnhardt.biz/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/img_3742.png)
From top to bottom: the bird has been made into the traditional Holy Ghost dove form with appropriate light beams radiating downward; the fire/grass has been removed and the sheep are standing on solid ground; all of the animals are sheep, especially the animal on the far left which is a pig in the original; the face of the shepherd figure is normal; the shepherd figure is holding a sheep on his shoulders correctly with arms uncrossed; the shepherd’s tunic is normal with no phallic imagery; the legs are normal, although the leg on the viewer’s left is still canted – a clear acknowledgement of the demonic deformity in the original.

Now that can definitely pass as The Good Shepherd.

Like I said, satanists would wear something with overt yet sufficiently subtle imagery so as to be missed by most casual observers, and to even pass as something “holy”, which is the entire point.

(https://www.barnhardt.biz/wp-content/uploads/2021/02/img_3749.jpg)

Antipope Jorge Mario Bergoglio, usurper, trying to pass as “something holy.”

English Introduction by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Aldo Maria Valli, one of the leading Vaticanista in Italy, expounds his personal view that at Rome no one is acting like a pope, which he expresses with the hyperbole, “At Rome there is no pope”, confounding the second act of being (which is acting, or ministerium) with the first act of being (which is authority or office or munus). — click the image to read the article in Italian.

He expressly denies that Bergoglio is Peter, and argues that Bergoglio’s manner of acting like a ɠƖobaƖıst shows that he has never intended to assume the Petrine ministry.

Valli like many others allowed the MSM tell him what happened on Feb. 13, 2013, so he does not consider that Benedict XVI is indeed still the pope. But what he says here rings true, because at last after 8 years, he has realized that Bergoglio is not exercising the Petrine Ministry.
Here is the English translation:
 
Rome Without A Pope: Jorge Mario Bergoglio is There, but not Peter 
By Aldo Maria Valli (https://www.aldomariavalli.it/2021/02/20/roma-senza-papa-ce-bergoglio-non-ce-pietro/)
Rome is without a pope. The thesis that I intend to support can be summarized in these five words. When I say Rome, I am not referring only to the city of which the pope is the bishop. When I say Rome, I mean the world; I mean the present reality.

The pope, although physically present, in reality is not there, because he does not do what the pope does. He is there, but he does not perform his duty as successor of Peter and vicar of Christ. Jorge Mario Bergoglio is there; Peter is not.

Who is the pope? The definitions, depending on whether one wants to highlight the historical, theological, or pastoral aspect, may be different. But, essentially, the pope is the successor of Peter. And what tasks were assigned by Jesus to the apostle Peter? One the one hand, “Feed my sheep” (Jn 21:17); on the other hand, “Whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven” (Mt 16:19).
This is what a pope should do. But today, there is no one who carries out this task. “And you, once you have turned back, strengthen your brothers in the faith” (Lk 22:32). So says Jesus to Peter. But today Peter does not shepherd his sheep and he does not strengthen them in the faith. Why? Someone answers: Because Bergoglio does not speak about God, only about migrants, ecology, the economy, and social questions. But this is not so. Actually, Bergoglio does speak about God, but what emerges from the whole of his preaching is a God who is not the God of the Bible but an adulterated God, a God, I would say, who is weakened, or better still, adapted. Adapted to what? To man and his demand to be justified in living as if sin did not exist.

Bergoglio has certainly placed social themes at the center of his teaching and, with sporadic exceptions, appears prey to the same obsessions of the dominating culture of the politically correct, but I believe that this is not the profound reason why Rome is without a pope. In wanting to highlight social themes, it is possible to have an authentically Christian and Catholic perspective. The question, with Bergoglio, is another one: it is that his theological perspective is deviated. And this is for a very specific reason: because the God of whom Bergoglio speaks is not one who forgives but rather one who removes all blame.

In Amoris Laetitia we read: “The Church must accompany with attention and care the weakest of her children” (Ch. 8, para. 291). I’m sorry, but that’s not how it is. The Church must convert sinners.

Once again in Amoris Laetitia, we read that “the Church does not disregard the constructive elements in those situations which do not yet or no longer correspond to her teaching on marriage (para. 314). I’m sorry, but those words are ambiguous. In situations that do not correspond to her teaching, there will also be “constructive elements” (but in what sense?); however, the mission of the Church is not to give validity to such elements but rather to convert souls to divine love, to which one adheres by observing the commandments.

In Amoris Laetitia we also read: “Yet conscience can do more than recognize that a given situation does not correspond objectively to the overall demands of the Gospel. It can also recognize with sincerity and honesty what for now is the most generous response which can be given to God, and come to see with a certain moral security that it is what God himself is asking amid the concrete complexity of one’s limits, while yet not fully the objective ideal” (para. 303). Once again there is ambiguity. First: there is not an “overall demand” of the Gospel, to which one can more or less adhere. There is simply the Gospel with its very specific contents; there are the commandments with their clarity. Second: God never – I repeat, never – can ask someone to live in sin. Third: no one can claim to have “a certain moral security” about “what God himself is asking amid the concrete complexity of one’s limits.” These muddled expressions have only one meaning: legitimizing moral relativism and playing games with the divine commandments.

This God committed more than anything else to freeing man from blame, this God in search of mitigating circumstances, this God who refrains from commanding and prefers to understand, this God who “is close to us like a mother singing a lullaby,” this God who is not a judge but who is “closeness,” this God who speaks of human “frailty” and not of sin, this God bent on the logic of pastoral accompaniment” is a caricature of the God of the Bible. Because God, the God of the Bible, is so patient, but not lax; he is so loving, but not permissive; he is so considerate, but not accommodating. In a word, he is a Father in the fullest and most authentic sense of the term.

The perspective assumed by Bergoglio appears instead to be that of the world, which often does not reject the idea of God entirely, but rejects the characteristics of God that are less in tune with the permissiveness that is rampant. The world does not want a true father, loving in the measure in which he is also judging, but rather it wants a buddy; or better still, a fellow traveler who lets things go and says, “Who am I to judge?”

On other occasions I have written that with Bergoglio a vision triumphs that overturns the real one: it is the vision which says that God has no rights, only duties. He does not have the right to receive worship worthy of him, nor to not be mocked, but he does have the duty to forgive. According to this vision, the reverse is true for man: man does not have any duties, but only rights. He has the right to be forgiven but not the duty to convert. As if there could be a duty for God to forgive and a right of man to be forgiven.

This is why Bergoglio, portrayed as the pope of mercy, seems to me to be the least merciful pope that one could imagine. In fact, he neglects the first and fundamental form of mercy that belongs to him and to him alone: preaching the divine law and, in so doing, pointing out to human creatures, from the height of his supreme authority, the way that leads to salvation and eternal life.

If Bergoglio has devised a “god” of this sort – which I intentionally indicate with a lower-case “g” because it is not the One and Triune God whom we adore – it is because for Bergoglio there is no fault for which man must ask forgiveness, neither personal nor collective, neither original nor actual. But if there is no fault, then there is also no Redemption; and without the need for Redemption the Incarnation makes no sense, much less the saving work of the one Ark of salvation which is the Holy Church. One wonders if that “god” is not rather the simia Dei – the ape of God – Satan, who pushes us towards damnation at the exact moment when he denies that the sins and vices with which he tempts us can kill our soul and condemn us to the eternal loss of the Supreme Good.

Rome is therefore without a pope. But while in Guido Morselli’s dystopian novel entitled Roma senza papa it was physically so, since the fictional pope went to live in Zagarolo, today Rome is without a pope in a much more profound and radical way.

I can already hear the objection: But how can you say that Rome is without a pope when Francis is everywhere? He is on TV and in the newspapers. He has been on the cover of TimeNewsweek, Rolling Stone, and even Forbes and Vanity Fair. He is on websites and in countless books. He has been interviewed by everyone, even by Gazzetta dello sport [translator’s note: the Italian daily sports newspaper that is the most widely read newspaper of any kind in Italy]. Perhaps never before has a pope been so present and so popular. I respond: that’s all true, but he is Bergoglio; he is not Peter.

It is certainly not forbidden for the vicar of Christ to concern himself with the things of the world. Quite the contrary. The Christian faith is an incarnate faith, and the God of the Christians is God who becomes man, who becomes history; thus Christianity shuns the excesses of spiritualism. But it is one thing to be in the world, and it is quite another to become like the world. By speaking as the world speaks and reasoning as the world reasons, Bergoglio has made Peter evaporate and put himself in the foreground.

I repeat: the world, our world born from the ʀɛʋօʟutιօn of ’68, does not want a true father. The world prefers a companion. The teaching of a father, if he is a true father, is laborious, because it points out the way of freedom in responsibility. It is much more convenient to just have someone next to you who simply keeps you company, without pointing anything out. And this is just what Bergoglio does: he shows a “god” who is not a father but a companion. It is no coincidence that Bergoglio’s “church of going out” likes the verb “accompany” – just like all modernism. It is a church that is a companion on the road, that justifies everything (by means of a distorted concept of discernment) and, in the end, relativizes everything.

Jesus is quite explicit in this matter. “Woe, when all men speak well of you” (Lk 6:26). “Blessed are you when men hate you and when they exclude you and insult you and reject your name as evil, because of the Son of Man” (Lk 6:22).

Every now and then a rumor surfaces that says that Bergoglio is also thinking of resigning, just like Benedict XVI. I believe that he has nothing like this in mind, but the problem is something else. The problem is that Bergoglio has become de facto the protagonist of a process of resignation from Peter’s duties.
I have already written elsewhere that Bergoglio has now become the chaplain of the United Nations, and I believe that this choice is of unprecedented gravity. However, even more serious than his adherence to the agenda of the UN and what is politically correct is that he has given up speaking to us about the God of the Bible and that the God at the center of his preaching is a God who clears people of blame, not a God who forgives.

The crisis of the father figure and the crisis of the papacy go hand in hand. Just as the father, rejected and dismantled, was transformed into a generic companion without any claim to the right to point out the way, in the same way the pope stopped being the bearer and interpreter of the objective divine law and preferred to become a simple companion.

In this way, Peter evaporated just when we most needed him to show us God as an all-around Father: a loving Father: not because he is neutral, but because he is judging; a merciful Father: not because he is permissive, but because he is committed to showing the way to the true good; a compassionate Father: not because he is relativist but because he is eager to show the way to salvation.

I observe that the protagonism in which the Bergoglian ego indulges is not a novelty, but goes back in large part to the new conciliar anthropocentric formulation, beginning with which popes, bishops, and clerics placed themselves before their sacred ministry, their own will before that of the Church, their own opinions before Catholic orthodoxy, and their own liturgical extravagances before the sacrality of the rite.

This personalization of the papacy has become explicit ever since the Vicar of Christ, wanting to present himself as “one like us,” renounced the use of the plural humilitatis with which he demonstrated that he was speaking not in a personal capacity but together with all his predecessors and the same Holy Spirit. Let’s think about it: that sacred “We” which made Pius IX tremble in proclaiming the dogma of the Immaculate Conception as well as Saint Pius X in condemning modernism, could never have been used to support the idolatrous cult of the Pachamama, nor to formulate the ambiguity of Amoris Laetitia or the indifferentism of Fratelli Tutti.

Concerning the process of personalization of the papacy (to which the advent and development of mass media gave an important contribution), we must recall that there was a time in which, at least up to and including Pius XII, it did not matter much to the faithful who was the pope, because in any case they knew that whoever he was he would always teach the same doctrine and condemn the same errors. In applauding the pope they applauded not so much the one who was on the holy throne at that moment but rather the papacy, the sacred regality of the Vicar of Christ, the voice of the Supreme Pastor, Jesus Christ.

Bergoglio, who does not like to present himself as the successor of the prince of the Apostles, and who has put the title “Vicar of Christ” into the background in the Annuario Pontificio, implicitly separates himself from the authority that Our Lord has conferred on Peter and his successors. And this is not a mere canonical question. It is a reality whose consequences are very serious for the papacy.

When will Peter return? How long will Rome remain without a pope? It is useless to ask. The designs of God are mysterious. We can only pray to the heavenly Father, saying: “Your will be done, not ours. And have mercy on us sinners.”

Pope Francis said 'Without Jesus, we cannot do anything. Just as there is no branches without the vine. If you permit me to say this, it seems that the Lord without us cannot do anything either, because the fruit comes from the branches, not from the vine.' (VATICAN)

MAY 2, 2020
 Pope Francis telephoned Andrea Baruffi, an 18 year old autistic man who had written him a letter. At the end of the call Andrea said to Pope Francis “We pray a lot for you, but you don’t need it, you are already a saint.” Jesting, Francis laughed, and said, 'Who knows, maybe we’ll see each other in Hell?' (CRUX/VIDEO)

JUNE 23, 2020
 Pope Francis had sharp words for “disobedient” priests who continued to say public Mass for the faithful and to hear confessions during the cσɾσnαvιɾυs lσcкdσωn, accusing them of behaving like “adolescents.” Pope Francis praised those priests who fully complied with all the regulations.

The Prophecy of Saint Francis of Assisi

"There will be an uncanonically elected pope who will cause a great Schism, there will be diverse thoughts preached which will cause many, even those in the different orders to doubt, yea, even agree with those heretics which will cause my Order to divide, then will there be such universal dissension and persecutions that if those days were not shortened even the elect would be lost." (source: The Reign of Antichrist by Rev. R. Gerald Culleton)

"The time is fast approaching in which there will be great trials and afflictions; perplexities and dissensions, both spiritual and temporal, will abound; the charity of many will grow cold, and the malice of the wicked will increase.  The devils will have unusual power, the immaculate purity of our Order, and of others, will be so much obscured that there will be very few Christians who will obey the true Sovereign Pontiff and the Roman Church with loyal hearts and perfect charity. At the time of this tribulation a man, not canonically elected, will be raised to the Pontificate, who, by his cunning, will endeavour to draw many into error and death. Then scandals will be multiplied, our Order will be divided, and many others will be entirely destroyed, because they will consent to error instead of opposing it.  There will be such diversity of opinions and schisms among the people, the religious and the clergy, that, except those days were shortened, according to the words of the Gospel, even the elect would be led into error, were they not specially guided, amid such great confusion, by the immense mercy of God. Then our Rule and manner of life will be violently opposed by some, and terrible trials will come upon us. Those who are found faithful will receive the crown of life; but woe to those who, trusting solely in their Order, shall fall into tepidity, for they will not be able to support the temptations permitted for the proving of the elect.  Those who preserve in their fervour and adhere to virtue with love and zeal for the truth, will suffer injuries and, persecutions as rebels and schismatics; for their persecutors, urged on by the evil spirits, will say they are rendering a great service to God by destroying such pestilent men from the face of the earth. but the Lord will be the refuge of the afflicted, and will save all who trust in Him. And in order to be like their Head, [Christ] these, the elect, will act with confidence, and by their death will purchase for themselves eternal life; choosing to obey God rather than man, they will fear nothing, and they will prefer to perish rather than consent to falsehood and perfidy. Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it under foot and deny it. Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Jesus Christ will send them not a true pastor, but a destroyer."

How sad the world is, not only do we have a FALSE person, believing to be a Pope,  we in the U.S.A. have a false President believing he is a President.

There are so many parallels between these two false leaders.

To begin with, they daily prove that they are both satan's children.

Of course we know that GOD has allowed them both to be counterfeit, false leaders.


This reminds me of  MATTHEW 4: 8 - 9

''[8] Again the devil took him up into a very high mountain, and shewed him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them,  [9]  And said to him: All these will I give thee, if falling down thou wilt adore me ''

We have not been left without GOD'S many gifts given to all with eyes to see and ears to hear regarding recognition in both of these two situations.

Our Lord’s response in MATTHEW 4: 10 as follows:

''Then Jesus saith to him: Begone, Satan: for it is written, The Lord thy God shalt thou adore, and him only shalt thou serve.''

The bergoglio and bıdɛn response to the devil is no less than, give it to me, I want it, I belong to you.

Antipope Bergoglio’s Conclave

By José Alberto Villasana Munguía (https://www.ultimostiempos.org/en/blog-en/itemlist/user/167-josé-alberto-villasana-munguía.html) June 27, 2018  


Aside from the fact that the renunciation of Benedict XVI was invalid, as he was submitted to international pressures as well as death threats and threats of schism, and apart from the fact that Bergoglio and nine other cardinals excommunicated themselves from the church before the 2013 conclave by illicitly plotting in favour of the Argentinian, the conclave itself was plagued with irregularities, which, according to Article 76 of the Constitution Universi Domenici gregis, “The ɛƖɛctıon is null and void, without the need for any declaration on the matter, and consequently, it confers no right on the one elected”. In other words, however you look at it, Bergoglio is not a true Pope but rather the 38th antipope in the history of the church.

Regarding the invalidity of Benedict XVI’s renunciation, six elements exist that show the way the Pope was pressurised to force him to resign.

With respect to the illegitimate collusion in favour of Bergoglio, which Cardinal Godfried Danneels revealed in his autography, and during the discourse of the presentation of his book, how he and eight other cardinals formed a “mafia club”, known among themselves as the “The Saint Galen Group”, in order to scheme against Benedict XVI and so bring Bergoglio to the Papacy.

Article 79 of the Constitution Universi Domenici Gregis, which establishes the details of how the conclave must be celebrated, says the following: “Confirming the prescriptions of my predecessors, I likewise forbid anyone, even if he is a cardinal, during the Pope’s lifetime and without having consulted him, to make plans concerning the ɛƖɛctıon of his successor, or to promise votes, or to make decisions in this regard in private gatherings”.

And in article 81 it is established that these agreements are punished with excommunication latae sententiae (i.e. automatic, without the need of a declaration by anybody, ipso facto and eo ipsa).

The information revealed by Cardinal Daneels days before the Synod, coincides with that published by Austin Ivereigh, in his book “The Great Reformer” in which he reveals how, during the 2013 conclave, four cardinals from the Mafioso Saint Galen group (Kasper, Lehman, Danneels and Murphy O’Connor) came together to illicitly orchestrate a campaign in favour of the ɛƖɛctıon of Bergoglio, after the latter had agreed to be the beneficiary of this scheming.

It must be pointed out that Ivereigh is a great admirer of Francis, and that he also went to the Vatican to present him personally with a copy of his book, without realising that in chap. 9 “The Conclave”, in which he relates how a group of cardinals which he calls “Team Bergoglio”, carried out a campaign of illegitimate scheming to smooth the way for the Argentinian candidate, thereby compromising the legitimacy of the ɛƖɛctıon.

Certainly Ivereigh did not know that the Constitution which governs the conclaves, the Universi Domenici Gregis establishes the pain of excommunication latae sententiae (i.e. automatic, without the need of a declaration by anybody) for the cardinals who promoted voting for any other cardinal. (Art 81, 82, 83).

Those responsible for this scheming were immєdιαtely excommunicated, ipso facto, and eo ipso, according to canon law and were no longer part of the church. Furthermore, the Constitution also points out that the recipient of this lobbying is also excommunicated. In other words, according to Pontifical Law, Bergoglio would have been outside the church at the moment of his ɛƖɛctıon.

After the ɛƖɛctıon came the two books which revealed the serious irregularities committed within the conclave that elected Bergoglio. The first is the book by Elisabbeta Piqué (Bergoglio’s authorised biographer from Argentina) entitled “Francisco, Vida y Revolución” (Francisco, Life and ʀɛʋօʟutιօn). Piqué knew, through Francis himself, what happened inside the conclave. The other book is by the famous vaticanologist Antonio Socci “Non é Francesco” (Francis is not the Pope).

The revelations of Piqué are so well believed as coming from Francis that the Osservatore Romano, the official Vatican newspaper, published the chapter that deals with how the conclave developed. Vatican Radio and Television did likewise. What happened is that Bergoglio, on being elected Pope, felt that the threat of excommunication – which falls on any cardinal for revealing what happened in the conclave – no longer affected him and related to the journalist the things that happened within the Sistine Chapel.

The narration: In the conclave, in the evening of the 13th of March, in the fourth vote count of the day, there were 116 votes when there were only 115 cardinals in the hall. One cardinal put in one paper too many. This fourth vote was won by Cardinal Angelo Scola of Milan (The Italian Episcopal Conference itself released a bulletin congratulating Scola for having been elected Pope). This vote count was improperly annulled. Angelo Scola’s website published that the recently elected Pope had taken the name of John XXIV. Wikipedia also published it. A few minutes later both sites took down this result. What happened is that when the recently elected Pope was on his way to the balcony of Saint Peter’s, a group of cardinals, mostly Germans and Americans, approached him to tell him that he had to return to the Sistine Chapel because the vote count had to be annulled.

Now, the Apostolic Constitution Universi Domenici Gregis (Art 69) establishes that if two folded papers came from the same cardinal with the same name or if one was blank, they must be counted as a single vote. If, on the other hand, there were two different names, both papers are annulled and none of the two votes is valid. But it clearly establishes: “In none of the two cases must the ɛƖɛctıon be annulled”. In this case there was an extra white paper. The established procedure was not followed but rather the ɛƖɛctıon was annulled, which was expressly prohibited.

Contravening the dispositions of the Constitution, the fourth vote count was declared null, they forced Cardinal Angelo Scola, recently elected and having taken the name of John XXIV, to resign and return to the Sistine Chapel, and they proceeded with a fifth vote in which Jorge Mario Bergoglio was elected.

This was the second irregularity of the conclave, because the Constitution establishes (Art 63) that there must only be four voting sessions per day, two in the morning and two in the evening.

The case for saying that the designation of Bergoglio is effectively invalid is clear, according to canon lawyers, who refer us to article 76 which states: “Should the ɛƖɛctıon take place in a way other than that prescribed in the present Constitution, or should the conditions laid down here not be observed, the ɛƖɛctıon is for this very reason null and void, without any need for a declaration on the matter; consequently, it confers no right on the one elected”.

This pile of evidence led Cardinal George Pell to declare that Francis could well be the 38th antipope in the history of the church, and not the 266th Pope as the vast majority believe.

Finally, it is worth pointing out here, that even if all the aforementioned be cast in doubt or discredited, all opposing arguments collapse with Cardinal Danneels’s admission in his biography, that he and a group of cardinals, the “Mafia Club”, plotted to force Benedict XVI to resign. When you have a confession, proof is not necessary.

This is how some saints and mystics describe the schism that will rock the Church, and which could have a lot to do with the Papal heresy we are witnessing:

Saint Francis of Assisi: There will be an uncanonically elected Pope who will cause a great schism in the Church”.

Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich (Augustinian religious): “I saw an intense opposition between two Popes, and I saw how harmful would be the consequences of the false Church (...) this will cause the greatest schism ever seen in the history of the Church”.

Sister Lucy of Fatima: There will be cardinals against cardinals, bishops against bishops; Satan will walk among them”.
And the most important, the revelation of the Blessed Virgin at La Salette: “Rome will loose the faith and become the seat of the Antichrist”.

The Prophecies of Blessed Anna-Katarina Emmerick
(Anne Catherine Emmerich)

Blessed Anne Catherine Emmerich was a Roman Catholic Augustinian Canoness Regular of Windesheim, mystic, Marian visionary, ecstatic and stigmatist. Excerpts from The Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

"I saw again the strange big church that was being built there in Rome. There was nothing holy in it. I saw this just as I saw a movement led by Ecclesiastics to which contributed angels, saints, and other Christians. But there in the strange big church all the work was being done mechanically according to set rules and formulae. Everything was being done according to human reason …I saw all sorts of people, things, doctrines, and opinions. There was something proud, presumptuous, and violent about it, and they seemed very successful. I di not see a single Angel nor a single saint helping in the work. But far away in the background, I saw the seat of the cruel people armed with spears, and I saw a laughing figure which said: "Do build it as solid as you can; we will pull it to the ground. I saw again the new and odd-looking church which they were trying to build. There was nothing holy about it … People were kneading bread in the crypt below … but it would not rise, nor did they receive the body of our Lord, but only bread. Those who were in error, through no fault of their own, and who piously and ardently longed for the Body of Jesus were spiritually consoled, but not by their communion. Then my Guide (Jesus) said: "This is Babel".
 "I saw deplorable things: they were gambling, drinking, and talking in church; they were also courting women. All sorts of abominations were perpetrated there. Priests allowed everything and said Mass with much irreverence. I saw that few of them were still godly… All these things caused me much distress."



"Then I saw the connection between the two Popes and the two temples. I am sorry that I have forgotten the numbers, but I was shown how weak the one had been in adherents and human support, but how strong in courage to overturn so many gods (I knew the number) and to unite so many different forms of worship into one; and, on the contrary, how strong in numbers and yet how irresolute in action was the other since, in authorizing the erection of false temples, he had allowed the only true God, the only true religion to be lost among so many false gods and false religions. It was also shown me that those pagans humbly adored gods other than themselves, and that they would have been willing to admit in all simplicity the only God, the Most Holy Trinity. Their worship was preferable to that of those who adore themselves in a thousand idols to the total exclusion of Our Lord. The picture was favorable to the early ages, for in them idolatry was on the decrease, while in our days it is just the contrary. I saw the fatal consequences of this counterfeit church; I saw it increase; I saw heretics of all kinds flocking to the city. I saw the ever-increasing tepidity of the clergy, the circle of darkness ever widening. And now the vision became more extended. I saw in all places Catholics oppressed, annoyed, restricted, and deprived of liberty, churches were closed, and great misery prevailed everywhere with war and bƖσσdshɛd. I saw rude, ignorant people offering violent resistance, but this state of things lasted not long. Again I saw in vision St. Peter’s undermined according to a plan devised by the secret sect while, at the same time, it was damaged by storms; but it was delivered at the moment of greatest distress. Again I saw the Blessed Virgin extending her mantle over it."

"I had another vision of the great tribulation. It seems to me that a concession was demanded from the clergy which could not be granted. I saw many older priests, especially one, who wept bitterly. A few younger ones were also weeping. But others, and the lukewarm among them, readily did what was demanded. It was as if people were splitting into two camps."

"I saw that many pastors allowed themselves to be taken up with ideas that were dangerous to the Church. They were building a great, strange, and extravagant Church. Everyone was to be admitted in it in order to be united and have equal rights: Evangelicals, Catholics, sects of every description. Such was to be the new Church … But God had other designs. "

"Then I saw an apparition of the Mother of God, and she said that the tribulation would be very great. She added that people must pray fervently with outstretched arms, be it only long enough to say three Our Fathers. This was the way her Son prayed for them on the Cross. They must rise at twelve at night, and pray in this manner; and they must keep coming to the Church. They must pray above all for the Church of Darkness to leave Rome… These were all good and devout people, and they did not know where help and guidance should be sought. There were no traitors and enemies among them, yet they were afraid of one another…" "I saw more martyrs, not now but in the future … I saw the secret sect relentlessly undermining the great Church. Near them I saw a horrible beast coming up from the sea. All over the world, good and devout people, especially the clergy, were harassed, oppressed, and put into prison … "

"Whole Catholic communities were being oppressed, harassed, confined, and deprived of their freedom. I saw many churches closed down, great miseries everywhere, wars and bƖσσdshɛd. A wild and ignorant mob took violent action. But it did not last long… "

“Last night, from eleven to three, I had a most wonderful vision of two churches and two Popes and a variety of things, ancient and modern…. I saw the fatal consequences of this counterfeit church; I saw it increase; I saw heretics of all kinds flocking to the city. I saw the ever-increasing tepidity of the clergy, the circle of darkness ever widening. And now the vision became more extended. I saw in all places Catholics oppressed, annoyed, restricted, and deprived of liberty, churches were closed, and great misery prevailed everywhere with war and bƖσσdshɛd. I saw rude, ignorant people offering violent resistance, but this state of things lasted not long. Again I saw in vision St. Peter’s undermined according to a plan devised by the secret sect while, at the same time, it was damaged by storms; but it was delivered at the moment of greatest distress. Again I saw the Blessed Virgin extending her mantle over it.”

“I saw the Holy Father very prayerful and God-fearing, his figure perfect, though worn out by old age and manifold sufferings, his head sunk on his breast as if in sleep. He often fainted away and seemed to be dying. I often saw him supported by apparitions during his prayer, and then his head was upright. When it sank upon his breast, then were the minds of many turned quickly here and there; that is, viewing things in a worldly light…. These visions were so frightful that I came near crying out. I see in the future religion falling so low that it will be practiced only here and there in farmhouses and in families protected by God during the horrors of war.”

“I see the Holy Father in great distress. He lives in another palace and receives only a few to his presence. If the wicked party knew their own great strength, they would even now have made an attack. I fear the Holy Father will suffer many tribulations before his death, for I see the black counterfeit church gaining ground, I see its fatal influence on the public. The distress of the Holy Father and of the Church is really so great that one ought to pray to God day and night. I have been told to pray much for the Church and the Pope…. Last night I was taken to Rome where the Holy Father, plunged in affliction, is still concealed in order to elude dangerous exigencies. He is very feeble, quite worn out by distress, anxiety, and prayer. His chief reason for lying concealed is because he can now trust so few.”

“I know not now how I went to Rome last night, but I found myself near the church of St. Mary-Major. 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 dark church.”
“I saw heartrending misery, playing, drinking, gossiping, even courting going on in the church. All sorts of abominations were committed in it; they had even set up a ninepin alley in the middle of it. The priests let things go their way and said Mass very irreverently; only a few of them were still a little intelligent and pious. I saw Jҽωs standing around the doorways. All this grieved me deeply. Then my Heavenly Spouse bound me as He Himself had been bound to the pillar, and He said: ‘So will the Church yet be bound. She will be tightly bound before she shall again arise.’”

“‘Very evil times are coming,’ [my guide] said. ‘The non-Catholics will mislead many. They will use every possible means to entice them from the Church, and great disturbances will follow.’ I had then another vision in which I saw the King’s daughter armed for the struggle. Multitudes contributed to this with prayers, good works, all sorts of labors and self-victories which passed from hand to hand up to Heaven where each was wrought, according to its kind, into a piece of armor for the virgin warrior. The perfect adjustment of the various pieces was most remarkable, as also their wonderful signification. She was armed from head to foot. I knew many of those who contributed the armor, and I saw with surprise that whole institutions and great and learned people furnished nothing. The contribution was made chiefly by the poor and lowly. And now I saw the battle. The enemies’ ranks were by far the more numerous; but the little body of the faithful cut down whole rows of them. The armed virgin stood off on a hill. I ran to her, pleading for my country and those other places for which I had to pray. She was armed singularly, but significantly, with helmet, shield, and coat of mail, and the soldiers were like those of our own day. The battle was terrible; only a handful of victorious champions survived!”

GUEST POST: “The False Prophet – Jorge Bergoglio?” by Benedict Carter (https://www.barnhardt.biz/2021/02/23/guest-post-the-false-prophet-jorge-bergoglio-by-benedict-carter/)


This timely guest post is written by Benedict Carter, a 57-year old English Catholic who lives in Fatima in Portugal. A cradle Traditionalist Catholic, he holds a BA Honours and a Masters degree in History from Cambridge University. This is a comprehensive piece, filled with invaluable quotes and citations.  I recommend bookmarking and saving this one for reference and consolation. -AB

THE FALSE PROPHET – JORGE BERGOGLIO?

“One day, through the Rosary and the Scapular, I will save the world.”

Quote
Fifth Lateran Council in 1516, under Pope Leo X
 We command all those who exercise the function of preaching, or will do so in the future, not to presume, either in their sermons or in their affirmations, to fix a date for future evils, whether for the coming of Antichrist or for the Day of Judgment, seeing that the Truth has said: ‘It is not for you to know the times or the moments, which the Father put in His own power .’ Those, therefore, who have had the audacity to make such statements in the past have lied, and it is well known that, on their account, the authority of those who preach wisely has greatly suffered.
Only God knows for sure

Given the solemn command of an Ecumenical Council, I begin by saying that the ideas presented here are my own, though I draw, heavily at times, on the work of a Catholic friend in Australia. As a layman with no theological training I have no authority whatsoever to make any definite claims and I make none. If on any point someone is able to point out any error I have made, I will cheerfully acknowledge the error and withdraw it.

Anyone reflecting on St. John’s Appocalypse must bear St. Augustine’s words in mind as he proceeds. In ‘The City of God’ St. Augustine says, “No doubt, though this book is called the Apocalypse, there are in it many obscure passages to exercise the mind of the reader, and there are few passages so plain as to assist in the interpretation of others, even though we take pains; and this difficulty is increased by the repetition of the same things, in forms so different, that the things referred to seem to be different, although in fact they are only differently stated.”

Outline of the Argument

That said, let us summarise the article for its readers with the help of the Catholic Encyclopedia (1917): “ … the “day of the Lord” will be preceded by the “man of sin (http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/14004b.htm)” known in the Johannine Epistles as Antichrist; the “man of sin (http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/14004b.htm)” is preceded by “a revolt,” or a great apostasy (http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/01624b.htm); this   apostasy (http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/01624b.htm) is the outcome of the “mystery of iniquity” which already “worketh”, and which, according to St. John (http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/08492a.htm), shows itself here and there by faint types of Antichrist. The Apostle gives three stages in the evolution of evil (http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/05649a.htm): the leaven of iniquity, the great apostasy (http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/01624b.htm), and the man of  sin. (http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/14004b.htm) But he adds a clause calculated to determine the time of the main event more accurately; he describes something first as a thing (to datechon), then as a person (ho katechon) (http://www.newadvent.org/cathen/11726a.htm), preventing the occurrence of the main event: ‘Only he who now holdeth, do hold, until he be taken out of the way.’”

I only add that the arrival of the Antichrist is heralded by the False Prophet. This article asks if this false prophet – THE False Prophet – might be Jorge Bergoglio.

Why might our era in particular be Apocalyptic, when every Catholic age has been awaiting the return of Our Lord; and many times exegetes thought that He would come in their time? There is no doubt that in the latter several centuries, the warnings of Our Lady, the understanding of many Saints, from St. John Eudes to St. Pio of Pietrelcina, the arrival in clear view of the Anti-Church following Vatican II and the consequent collapse of the Church into open apostasy all suggest that our time is much more proximate to Scripture than others. Let us review some of these suggestions:

Quote
“Surely, there is at this day a confederacy of evil, marshalling its hosts from all parts of the world, organizing itself, taking its measures, enclosing the Church of Christ as in a net, and preparing the way for a general Apostasy from it. Whether this very Apostasy is to give birth to Antichrist, or whether he is still to be delayed, as he has already been delayed so long, we cannot know; but at any rate this Apostasy, and all its tokens and instruments, are of the Evil One, and savour of death.” Blessed John Newman (1801 – 1890)

“We have (2 Thessalonians 2:3-11) a prophecy of a (spiritual) revolt, which shall precede the Second Coming of Our Lord. The authority from which the revolt is to take place is that of the kingdom of God on earth, prophesied by Daniel (cf. Daniel 2) as the kingdom which the God would set up – in other words, the One and Universal Church, founded by our Divine Lord, and spread by His Apostles throughout the world. In this one only kingdom was deposited the true and supernatural pure theism, or knowledge of God, and the true and only faith of God Incarnate, with the doctrines and laws of grace. This, then, is the authority from which the revolt is to be made, be that revolt what it may.” Cardinal Manning in “The Perpetual Conflict of the Vicar of Christ”, pp. 81-173.
And Manning again:

Quote
“The apostasy of the city of Rome from the vicar of Christ and its destruction by Antichrist may be thoughts so new to many Catholics, that I think it well to recite the text of theologians of greatest repute. First Malvenda, who writes expressly on the subject, states as the opinion of Ribera, Gaspar Melus, Biegas, Suarrez, Bellarmine and Bosius that Rome shall apostatise from the faith, drive away the Vicar of Christ and return to its ancient paganism. …Then the Church shall be scattered, driven into the wilderness, and shall be for a time, as it was in the beginning, invisible hidden in catacombs, in dens, in mountains, in lurking places; for a time it shall be swept, as it were from the face of the earth. Such is the universal testimony of the Fathers of the early Church.”-The Present Crisis of the Holy See, 1861

“These most crafty enemies have filled and inebriated with gall and bitterness the Church, the spouse of the immaculate Lamb, and have laid impious hands on her most sacred possessions. In the Holy Place itself, where has been set up the See of the Most Holy Peter and the Chair of Truth for the light of the world, they have raised the throne of their abominable impiety, with the iniquitous design that when the Pastor has been struck, the sheep may be scattered.” Pope Leo XIII’s Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel (The Raccolta, 1910, p. 125)
And closer to our own times:-

Quote
Pope John Paul II, went further than Newman, saying in 1979: “We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has gone through. I do not think the wide circle of American society or the wide circles of the Christian community realize this fully. We are now facing the final confrontation between the Church and the Anti-Church, of the Gospel versus the Anti-Gospel. This confrontation lies within the plans of Divine Providence …”.

What remained unsaid by John Paul and might be deduced from the phrase the final confrontation was the Apocalyptic battle between Christ and the Antichrist, for the Fathers of the Church consistently taught that the final battle is to be between them.

Fatima scholars have long ago noted a reference to this final confrontation in Sr. Lucia’s conversation with Fr Fuentes: “Father, the Most Holy Virgin did not tell me that we are in the last times of the world but she made me understand this for three reasons. (1) … she told me that the devil is in the mood for engaging in a decisive battle against the Virgin. And a decisive battle is the final battle … (2) she said … that God is giving two last remedies to the world. These are the Holy Rosary and Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. These are the last two remedies which signify that there will be no others. (3) … in the plans of Divine Providence, God always before He is about to chastise the world exhausts all other remedies.”

Admitting that he had read the Third Secret of Fatima, Cardinal Ratzinger explained why it had not been revealed. “According to the judgements of the Popes it adds nothing (different) to what a Christian must know concerning what derives from Revelation: that is, a radical call for conversion, the absolute importance of history, the dangers threatening the faith and the life of the Christian, and therefore the world. And then the importance of the ‘novissimi’ (the last events at the end of time) … the things contained in this Third Secret correspond to what has been announced in Scripture.”

The last events at the end of time”? “Correspond to what has been announced in Scripture“? Given his knowledge of the Third Secret, what did Cardinal Ratzinger have in mind? Sr. Lucia had already stated that the Third Secret related to Chapters 12 and 13 of the Apocalypse, chapters relating to ‘the Woman clothed with the sun’ and the Antichrist. Is that what the Cardinal was alluding to? An insight is given in Cardinal Ratzinger’s statement opposing the Catholic Church’s participation in the syncretic ‘Council for Peace’.

“The proposed Council for Peace which would bring together many different religions is, due to the very essence of the Church, impossible.” With these words Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger explained the reason for the refusal of the Catholic Church to join in a meeting which would bring together all the great world religions on the theme of peace, disarmament and the environment. “It needs to be said that the effort to establish a world-wide reign of peace by means of a world union of religions has a disturbing similarity to the third temptation of Jesus – All the kingdoms of the earth I will give unto you if you, prostrating yourself, will worship me.” (Matt 4.9). He continued: ‘It is evident that a peace established in this way would by its very nature be transformed into a totalitarianism of the sole authorised way of thinking or would threaten to be turned upside down into a world cινιℓ ωαr … In this sense the New Testament says of the Antichrist that he will present himself as a messenger of peace and security.’ (1 Thess 5:3).

Ratzinger noted that one of the most profound interpreters of this passage was the Russian theologian Vladimir Soloviev, whose ‘Legend of the Antichrist’ characterises the Antichrist precisely as the one who terms himself the establisher of world peace.

“Confusion, division, and error” within the Catholic Church coming from shepherds even at the highest levels indicate that we may be in the end times, said U.S. Cardinal Raymond Burke in an address in Kentucky. The Cardinal, who spoke at the July 22nd “Church Teaches Forum” in Louisville, said that, in his opinion, the times “realistically seem to be apocalyptic.” Louisville, Kentucky, August 8, 2017 (LifeSiteNews)

And Cardinal Willem Eijk, the Primate of the Netherlands, 5th May 2018, regarding the plan to admit to Holy Communion the civilly divorced, public adulterers called the “remarried”:
“Observing that the bishops and, above all, the Successor of Peter fail to maintain and transmit faithfully and in unity the deposit of faith contained in Sacred Tradition and Sacred Scripture, I cannot help but think of Article 675 of the Catechism of the Catholic Church …”.

That Article is titled, “The Church’s ultimate trial”, and reads as follows:

Quote
“Before Christ’s second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers. The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth will unveil the ‘mystery of iniquity’ in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth.”
It seems then that at least three former Popes and several current Cardinals consider contemporary events to be proximate indicators of the Reign of Antichrist. How do these publicly-expressed statement compare with those of the Fathers and Doctors of the Church?

Consider first of all what St. Alphonsus Liguori wrote: “The devil has always managed to get rid of the Mass by means of the heretics, making them the precursors of the Antichrist who, above all else, will manage to abolish, and in fact will succeed in abolishing, as a punishment for the sins of men, the Holy Sacrifice of the Altar, precisely as Daniel predicted.”

The Abomination of Desolation

This introduces a new element into the matter, the abolishment of the Mass, “precisely as Daniel predicted.”

What did the prophet Daniel say? “And strength was given him against the continual sacrifice, because of sins: and truth shall be cast down on the ground and he shall do and prosper.” (Dan 8:12). “The victim and the sacrifice shall fail: and there shall be in the temple the abomination of desolation.” (Dan 9:27). “They shall defile the sanctuary of strength, and shall take away the continual sacrifice, and they shall place there the abomination of desolation.” (Dan 11:31).

The Fathers of the Church agree that the ‘abomination of desolation’ is the Antichrist. It appears then that the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass fails, or loses its efficacy, thus clearing the way for the Antichrist.

This is confirmed by Saint Paul. “Let no man deceive you by any means: for unless there come a revolt first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition, who opposeth and is lifted up above all that is called God or that is worshipped, so that he sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself as if he were God. … And now you know what withholdeth, that he may be revealed in his time. For the mystery of iniquity already worketh: only that he who now holdeth do hold, until he be taken out of the way. And then that wicked one shall be revealed,” (2 Thess 2:3-8).

The Fathers of the Church agree that the ‘man of sin’ is the Antichrist and the word ‘revolt’ is translated ‘apostasy’ in the Greek. St Paul refers to something which restrains the Antichrist, but that when removed, permits him to be revealed. He describes this restraint as being both neuter (what) and masculine (he). Similarly, Daniel prophesied that “the victim (masculine) and the sacrifice (neuter) shall fail: and there shall be in the temple the abomination of desolation”, the Antichrist. This restraint is the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Other references (linked to Daniel) are found in Matthew 24 and Mark 13.

In an astounding statement, echoing the Ottaviani Intervention, Cardinal Ratzinger admitted that the drastic manner in which Pope Paul VI reformed the Mass in 1969 provoked “extremely serious damage.” He said that the suppression of the old Mass marked a “break in the history of the liturgy, the consequences of which could only be tragic … I am convinced that the ecclesial crisis in which we find ourselves today (and he said this in 1997!) depends in great part on the collapse of the liturgy … I was dismayed by the ban on the old Missal, since such a development had never been seen in the history of liturgy … Action should be taken to repair the damage … For the life of the Church, it is dramatically urgent to have a renewal of liturgical awareness, a liturgical reconciliation, which goes back to recognising the unity in the history of the liturgy …”.

On this matter, St. Hippolytus writes:

“And the churches, too, will wail with a mighty lamentation, because neither ‘oblation nor incense’ is attended to, nor a service acceptable to God; but the sanctuaries of the churches will become like a garden-watcher’s hut, and the holy Body and Blood of Christ will not be shown in those days. The public service of God shall be extinguished, psalmody shall cease, the reading of the Scriptures shall not be heard; but for men there shall be darkness, and lamentation on lamentation, and woe on woe (Saint Hippolytus, Op. cit., pp. 250, 251).”

Cornelius Lapide says that, though the public celebration of the Mass will cease, it will continue to be said in the mountains and caves, as in the catacombs of old. He cites Psalm XXII, 5 in confirmation of this: “Thou hast prepared a table before me against them that afflict me.”
Once the continual sacrifice is taken away, Satan will be unleashed in all his fury.

“Collapse of the liturgy … ecclesial crisis … for the life of the Church it is dramatically urgent …”.

In language recalling Daniel and St. Paul, Ratzinger admitted that the Novus Ordo Mass has failed. The effects of the Novus Ordo are so bad that we will accept that it fits.

Let us return to Sr. Lucia of Fatima. Why did Our Lady tell Lucia dos Santos that there were only two remedies left – the Holy Rosary and Devotion to the Immaculate Heart of Mary? Why was the Mass not given as a remedy? It seems fair to surmise that the Blessed Virgin had knowledge that the Mass would fail.

The Revolt

St. Paul introduced another element, the apostasy. “… unless there come a revolt first, and the man of sin be revealed …”. The apostasy is to accompany the collapse of the Mass culminating in the arrival of the Antichrist. Is Cardinal Ratzinger’s “ecclesial crisis”, what we now see openly from Bergoglio and his followers, which effectively is the open announcement of the Anti-Church, St. Paul’s apostasy?

Cardinal Oddi attended the Fatima 2000 Conference in Rome. The Conference Report disclosed that “Cardinal Oddi said, regarding the Third Secret, ‘the Blessed Virgin was alerting us against the apostasy.’ ”

Ratzinger continued his public ‘novissimi’-genre statements when elevated to the Papacy. For example, papal watchers wondered why as Benedict XVI he selected Cardinal Biffi, a Soloviev scholar, to preach the 2007 Lenten retreat to the Pope and Curia. Cardinal Biffi, is well known for his March 2000 claim, and others, that “the Antichrist would appear after the 20th century” and that “he would call for a world religion via ecumenism, replacing traditional Christianity with an amorphous ‘New Age’ type of spirituality.”

The Cardinal continued that theme at the 2007 Lenten retreat declaring that “… if Christianity – on opening itself to the world and dialoguing with all – dilutes the salvific event, it closes itself to a personal relationship with Jesus and places itself on the side of the Antichrist.” Pope Benedict XVI thanked Cardinal Biffi saying “I would also like to say ‘thank you’ because you have given us a very acute and precise diagnosis of our situation today.”
On 12 October 2006, explaining Our Lady’s Fatima warning that “various nations will be annihilated”, Fr. Nicolas Gruner made clear his belief that the whole world will not be annihilated but that the part not annihilated would be enslaved by militant atheists and militant Satanists. (It is arguable that this is precisely the situation today.)

As Sister Lucy tells us, “ … the devil is in the mood for a final battle and we must choose sides. We are either for the devil or for Jesus and Mary. There is no middle ground.”

Solange Hertz (+) wrote in ‘Beyond Politics’, “The Pope has absolutely no ‘privilege to personal infallibility’ apart from the Church, but (renegade) Abbe Roca tells us something of the kind will be invoked to impose the new ‘Gospel of social redemption’ on the public at large. Just as the fallen angels followed Lucifer’s personal directives to their damnation and the тαℓмυdic Jҽωs followed the example of Caiphas and Annas against Christ, we can therefore expect the apostates of the latter days to follow the personal directives of the Antichrist in his assault on the Church.”

“We may be sure, moreover, that his dictates will coincide with men’s sinful inclinations if he is to win worldwide support. Like the unjust steward, “Knowing that he has but a short time” (Apoc 12:12), he will curry favor while he can by offering lavish permissions to all. Under cover of his authorization, wholesale dispensations from God’s laws in the name of religion and human compassion will be granted for the asking. Encouraged to attenuate their relations with God in the same way the debtors in the parable were led to cheat on their accounts, those who accept such favors will automatically labor to uphold an establishment in which they have acquired a vested interest.”

It appears that the reign of Antichrist approaches. The situation is extremely grave. The Fathers of the Church tell us that this period of history will pose the greatest danger to souls.

The nominal Catholics of today would also be among the first to accept Antichrist’s claim that he is Our Lord come for the second time, because he will not censure their lax life styles and many of them know little about the authentic Catholic Faith. But once they have submitted to him, he will turn on them: “And the ten horns which thou sawest in the beast: these shall hate the harlot, and shall make her desolate and naked, and shall eat her flesh, and shall burn her with fire” (Apoc. 17:16). Most of the Fathers understand by this passage that Antichrist will destroy the city of Rome.

And so we come to the False Prophet.

Before the Antichrist arrives he is preceded by the False Prophet. This Beast from the Earth is described as an infiltrated agent of the Antichrist within the Church, sent to destroy and deceive the Christian faith.

Fr H. Kramer, in his comprehensive study of the Apocalypse, wrote in ‘The Book of Destiny’, “Though he poses as a lamb, his doctrines betray him for he teaches the doctrine of the dragon”.

We must remember St. Augustine’s warning, that St. John’s great vision contains things are are repeated in different ways, and are obscure. One the one hand, Scripture tells us, “And I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns, like a lamb, and he spoke as a dragon. And he executed all the power of the former beast in his sight; and he caused the earth, and them that dwell therein, to adore the first beast, whose wound to death was healed. And he did great signs, so that he made also fire to come down from heaven unto the earth in the sight of men. And he seduced them that dwell on the earth, for the signs, which were given him to do in the sight of the beast, saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make the image of the beast, which had the wound by the sword, and lived. And it was given him to give life to the image of the beast, and that the image of the beast should speak; and should cause, that whosoever will not adore the image of the beast, should be slain (Apoc. 13:11-15).”

But we also read, in Apocalypse 9, “1 And the fifth angel sounded the Tɾυmρet, and I saw a star fall from heaven upon the earth, and there was given to him the key of the bottomless pit. 2 And he opened the bottomless pit: and the smoke of the pit arose, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened with the smoke of the pit. 3 And from the smoke of the pit there came out locusts upon the earth.”

It is my contention that the second scriptural citation above is more easily understood when considering Jorge Bergoglio as the one who heralds Antichrist.
We know from St. Ambrose, Tertullian and others that, just as Our Lord had His precursor, St. John the Baptist, who pointed to Him and told the people that this was the Messias, “Behold the Lamb of God . . .”, so also will Antichrist have his false prophet who will make the people worship him. The phrase, “like a lamb,” indicates that he will be an apostate Catholic, probably a priest or bishop. So, as Our Lord’s precursor was a priest of the order of Levi, so Antichrist’s precursor will be a priest of the order of Melchisedech. Exegetes have always taken the reference in Scripture to the stars to refer to the clergy. In this case, “ … a star fall from Heaven upon the earth, and there was given to him the key of the bottomless pit …” must refer to a very senior cleric.

Jorge Mario Bergoglio

Various lists of the heresies and errors of Jorge Bergoglio have been compiled by those able to discern and describe them – the Dubia Cardinals, the forty-five theologians, Chris Ferrara and others – while many individuals, clerics and others, notably Archbishop Viganò, have referred to these errors. He has ignored all of them. It is not my purpose to repeat another exhaustive list as these are already easily available, but to make some comments that support the contention that Bergoglio may well be the False Prophet.

From wherever it comes, it is clear that for Jorge Bergoglio, doctrine is something to be easily set aside when faced by the shades of grey (fifty of them?) that “real life” presents, and that private judgement in the form of “discernment” must take precedence. As a result, he has run a sword through the Church’s moral teaching and consequently its Sacramental teaching has been smashed.

He seeks to destroy the four marks of the Church.

Its ONENESS. He wants to take inculturation to new levels, allowing each national Episcopate to determine the translation of the Mass. He even plans to allow these national bodies to determine doctrine. All this destroys not only the Catholicity, the universality of the Church, but the authority of the Holy See.

Its HOLINESS. Any thriving religious order that has numerous vocations and a bent for Tradition, he ruthlessly destroys. I can think of three at least. New rules which all religious orders must adopt ruin the contemplative element of monasticism, replacing it with “activity”, thus destroying the essence of monasticism. Even Consecrated Virgins no longer need to have ‘bodily integrity”. Holiness for Bergoglio is something to attack, not defend or promote. He clearly has no time for purity. He surrounds himself with, promotes and defends the grossly impure – sơdơmites, the financially corrupt, those who (like himself) have protected the sɛҳuąƖ abusers.

It’s CATHOLICITY. By constantly referring to the Jesuit mantra of inculturation and the Bugninian adopton of Catholic forms to local usuage, the universality of the Church’s worship are smashed. Though this is not in itself new, with the “Amazonian rite” featuring explicit pagan worship it has been taken to a wholly new level.

It’s APOSTOLICITY. By promoting to important Bishoprics and Cardinalates the impure, the morally deficient, the sharers of his heresies, he throws out the shepherd and replaces him with the wolf. Is this the mark of a man who loves Christ’s flock? No, it displays a contempt and hatred for the flock and for Christ.

Who can forget his first appearance on the loggia? I know that very many felt just as I did. It was a golem, a thing of evil, a clay figure, that had stepped out to survey the crowds below with a clear look of triumph, disdain and malice on his face. Take that feeling seriously: so many felt it that it can only have been a global prompting of the Holy Ghost, or of many Guardian Angels.

There is his indirect claim, made at Fatima, to be the Bishop in white of the released part of the Third Secret. There is the text received by Spanish journalist Jose Maria Zavala, wherein it is written, in Sr. Lucia’s acknowledged handwriting:

Quote
“Now I am going to reveal the third fragment of the secret: This part is the apostasy in the Church! Our Lady showed us the individual who I describe as the ‘Holy Father’ in front of a multitude that was cheering him. But there was a difference from a true holy Father, his devilish gaze, this one had the gaze of evil. Then, after some moments we saw the same Pope entering a Church, but this Church was the Church of hell; there is no way to describe the ugliness of that place. It looked like a gray cement fortress with broken angles and windows similar to eyes; it had a beak in the roof of the building. Next, we raised our eyes to Our Lady who said to us: You saw the apostasy in the Church.”
No-one who has been inside the new basilica in the Fatima shrine, as I have, located directly opposite the orginal, can doubt its ugliness or the accuracy of the description of it given in the above text.

The reader will also remember that Bergoglio ascribed to Our Lady at the foot of the Cross doubts and anger; that she had been cheated or misled by her Son.

It is true that Bergoglio has spoken about the devil and hell in an authentically Catholic way, and several times. There is a great dichotomy within this man, who as a young priest (as he writes in his autobiography) delighted in teaching foul language to a young nephew. Is he demonically possessed, or oppressed?

There are many other sources that could have been used and quoted. Blessed Anne Emmerich, the letter from Sister Lucia to Cardinal Carrafa are two among many.

What Catholics now face for certain is the unimaginable yet clearly-foretold apostasy which heralds the Antichrist. This is as far as my human reason is able to penetrate the darkness of the present, let alone the future.

More recent statements made by Bergoglio only serve to substantiate the radical un-Catholicity of the man. His Abu Dhabi prayer house; his statements on (Masonic) brotherhood; his evident aversion to saying Mass at the High Altar of St. Peter’s, below which of course lie the very bones of St. Peter himself; his syncretism, hs indifferentist view of other religions, none of which are deemed to be false; his refusal to seek the conversion of anyone.

Our Lady

It is clear from Apocalypse 12 – “the woman clothed with the sun” – that Our Lady has some large role to play at the end of time. In his True Devotion to Mary , Saint Louis Marie de Montfort writes: “It was through Mary that the salvation of the world was begun, and it is through Mary that it will be consummated.” Our Lord in His eschatological discourse spoke of a sign that would immєdιαtely precede His Coming: “And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all tribes of the earth mourn: and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with much power and majesty” (Matthew 24:30).

Many of the Fathers thought, thinking no doubt of Constantine at the battle of the Milvian Bridge – In hoc signo vinces – that this sign would be the sign of the cross. But the Apocalypse seems to indicate that this sign will be Our Lady: “And a great sign appeared in heaven: A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars.”

We must not forget nor ever belittle the authentic apparitions of Our Lady approved by the Church:

-The miraculous image of Our Lady of Guadalupe, in 1531, where she appears clothed with the sun and the moon under her feet, her name Guadalupe meaning in Aztec, “serpent crusher”.

-The very important apparitions in Quito, Ecuador, to Mother Mariana de Jesus Torres and the resulting devotion to Our Lady of Good Success.

-The apparition of Our Lady of Knock, in 1879, which is a tableau from the Apocalypse, a vision of the Church, the Lamb as it were slain standing on the altar, Saint Joseph representing the laity praying, Saint John representing the priesthood preaching, and Our Lady offering all up to God.
And finally of course, the most famous of them all, Our Lady of Fatima, in 1917, and the miracle of the sun.

There is great hope then for those who choose the protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Final victory has been promised to her and her children by God Almighty. The Holy Ghost, speaking through His servant St. Louis de Montfort, explains that True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin, His Spouse, is ‘especially necessary to the great saints of the latter times’, our times. If you wish to ‘shelter under Her protection’, then, without delay, commence the preparation described by St. Louis which culminates in the Total Consecration to Jesus through Mary. In addition practice the daily recitation of at least one decade of the Holy Rosary and complete the Five First Saturdays as Our Lady requested.

Some holy men have said that Our Lady was the test of all angels at the beginning. It seems that she will be the test of all men at the end.

I do not believe that only one decade daily of the ROSARY is a good idea nor a sufficient observance according to the requests made by the BLESSED VIRGIN MARY that the Rosary be prayed daily as the author states in this quote:

‘’In addition practice the daily recitation of at least one decade of the Holy Rosary. . .’’

Luther's statue enthroned at the Vatican

On October 13, 2016, Pope Francis did not offer one single word in public to honor Our Lady of Fatima. Instead, he chose to receive on that very day 1,000 Lutherans in Paul VI Hall at the Vatican.
 
 For the event, he ordered that a statue of Martin Luther be erected on the stage in a place of preeminence so that it could preside over the meeting, above and first two rows below.
 
 Next, he received from the Lutherans a bound copy of the 95 theses with which the heresiarch started his revolt, third row.
 
 During the meeting he wore two scarves on his neck, one yellow, symbolizing the Papacy, and one light blue, representing Lutheranism, The two were tied together to signify the union between the Conciliar Church and the Protestant heresy.
 
 Referring to Luther, Pope Bergoglio said: "The Church's greatest reformers are the saints, in other words the men and women who follow the Word of the Lord and practice it. This is the path we need to take, this is what reforms the church and they are great reformers. They may not be theologians, they may not have studied, they may be humble, but these people's soul is steeped in the Gospel, it's full of it and they are the ones who successfully reform the Church. Both in the Lutheran and Catholic Churches there are saints, men and women with a holy heart who follow the Gospel: they are the Church's reformers."
 
 Aren't these words - spoken in the context of this ceremony to honor the heresiarch - an implicit canonization of Luther (https://www.traditioninaction.org/bev/195bev09_30_2016.htm)? But we wonder whether there is still more to come...
 
 Even if there were nothing else to incriminate the Conciliar Church, is this ceremony not sufficient proof that it has completely apostatized from the Catholic Faith?

Stickypost: You must buy this AMAZING new book “Benedict XVI: Pope ‘Emeritus’?”


(Scroll down for new content.  I’m leaving this incredibly important post at the top of the blog for a while.)

Folks, an absolutely FANTASTIC new book, “Benedict XVI: Pope ‘Emeritus’?” (https://www.amazon.com/Benedict-XVI-Emeritus-Estefan%C3%ADa-Acosta/dp/B08WZLZ1M1/ref=sr_1_1?dchild=1&keywords=estefania+acosta&qid=1614330114&sr=8-1),  has just been published that I cannot recommend strongly enough.

Everyone should buy a copy of this book not only for themselves, but also buy copies to distribute, especially to priests.  It is a SYSTEMATIC, COMPREHENSIVE presentation of the dataset regarding the invalidity of Pope Benedict’s putative resignation assembled by a Columbian attorney named Estefanía Acosta. This book is so good and so well done that I am convinced that it is the fruit of the prayers of the faithful.  

Miss Acosta, born in ARSH 1989, is a native of Medellin, Colombia and has her Masters in Law from the University of Medellin, with her thesis (with honors) being in constitutional law.  She has been an official of the “State Judicial Power” in Colombia, as well as a university professor specializing in the areas of civil and commercial law.  She is a cradle Catholic “revert” desiring to use her education and abilities to defend the rights of God, His Holy Church, and the Papacy.  She has accomplished this goal with the publication of this book.

The book is divided into three sections.  The first, and most important, is the presentation of the canonically air-tight case that Pope Benedict’s attempted resignation in ARSH 2013 was invalid.  The second section, included for the sake of systematic thoroughness, addresses the faux-conclave of ARSH 2013 and Jorge Bergoglio’s heresy, ties to Fɾҽҽmαsσɳɾყ, and non-Catholicity,  but is an historically important record of the infiltration and corruption of the Vatican and College of Cardinals. The Third section is a series of valuable appendices.

The base premise of the book is that Pope Benedict’s attempted resignation was invalid and that he is and has been the one and only living Vicar of Christ since April ARSH 2005.  It is important to remember that this totally unprecedented Antipapacy is like a gangrenous leg, with the infection up to the knee.  If only the foot is amputated, the gangrene will still be present and kill the victim.  FOCUSING ONLY ON THE FAUX-CONCLAVE of ARSH 2013 and/or Jorge Bergoglio’s heresy/apostasy and NOT the ROOT ISSUE OF THE INVALIDITY OF POPE BENEDICT’S ATTEMPTED RESIGNATION is like amputating only the foot of a gangrenous leg – a futile gesture that will only make the situation worse by enabling the installation of ANOTHER ANTIPOPE.  There WAS NO VALID CONCLAVE in ARSH 2013 to declare null. Jorge Bergoglio is not now and never, ever has been the Pope, and therefore cannot be “deposed” from an office which he has NEVER OCCUPIED.

The only thing I want to warn readers of is the “clunkiness” of parts of the English translation.  It is totally readable and comprehensible, but it is not the silky-smooth prose of a native English speaker.  That’s okay.  This is no problem at all.  I stand in awe of the sheer amount of work that went into this book and its translations.  As of the initial release right now, it is available in Spanish, Portuguese and English, and is available both as a hefty, high-quality paperback and as an e-book.

Folks, BUY THIS BOOK. It will go down in history.

Oh, and as if you needed more encouragement, the 37th and 38th words of the preface are, “Dr. Mazza.” ‘Nuff said.

I get the stuff about Bergoglio.  If he's not a heretic, then there's no such thing as a heretic and never has been.

But Benedict somehow being the "savior"?  He's just slightly less hereticaler than Bergoglio.

Kasper the Friendly Ecumenist recently admitted that Bergoglio's theology is no different from that of Ratzinger.

https://cruxnow.com/vatican/2018/10/kasper-sees-no-substantial-difference-between-benedict-and-francis/

Quote
As one of the major protagonists of the Francis papacy — and arguably of the Catholic Church since Vatican II — German Cardinal Walter Kasper argues, “there is no real substantial difference between Pope Benedict and Pope Francis.”

“They are different personalities of course, different backgrounds,” said Kasper. “One is European, the other comes from Latin America. [But] if you read exactly what they write, it’s the same line and substance.”

You are so right, and you made me laugh with your word ''hereticaler''.
Me thinks that the whole mess is laid out in that bergoglio is not only more hereticaler, but he is also invalidly elected by so many options to choose from.
However, in the case of Ratzinger, he was validly elected, and so therefore he remains pope.

I [Mrs. 54rosary] am not so sure that Nadir is correct.  The fact is that we [Mr. and Mrs. 54rosary]  have been noticing a seemingly increase in the number of  writings and responses on CathInfo that could be identified as prideful, arrogant, and not of good will.  This makes me think that, along with the rest of the world, there is possible infiltration as the cause.

There was a great deal of the prideful, arrogant, and ill will associated with a down thumbing toward RomanCatholic1953 that was totally uncalled for.

It is one thing to down thumb and another to do it in the wrong situation such as here regarding the one in this post pursuant to the Blessed Virgin's plan for us and also against RomanCatholic as was the case.  It all matters for sure.  

We prayed for the poor souls who down thumbed here and will pray again.  Generally, we pray for all those on CathInfo and their families as well.

It would have been a good idea that the person would reply that the problem was the block letters and wide spacing.  In any case such as that down thumbed reply in this post being discussed , I wish that I could always spread certain beautiful messages in BIG LETTERS.

For the record, a good deal of the time I write my postings/responses on word, and when I copy and paste them on CathInfo, the words enlarge, the spacing is different, and other various anomalies happen that are not the same as the original writing that I did.    

In addition, we are not aware of the recent thread about this topic of sizes of letters, etc. because we do not follow every thread because of the time that this would take.

Also, I enjoy writing in various styles, colors, and sizes.  If there is something wrong with this in the ideas and minds of some, I am very surprised.
I wrote that thread.  Although I did not downthumb you, I will tell you I will not read such eyesores from any poster regardless of the topic...especially the long ones.  There is no reason why you can't re-size things before posting.  Regarding length, I also wonder why posters can't give a synopsis and just post a link.

Dear 2Vermont,

Actually my thread was a request not a dictate (and others agreed with me).  You do not wish to honor that request.  Rather than pontificate about humility perhaps it is you who needs to heed that advice.

And I already skip over the long, large font posts.  If someone wants to reach all though, I would think they would do their best to re-size.

St. Hildegard of Bingen

“He (the Antichrist) will grant entire freedom from the commandments of God and the Church and permit everyone to live as his passions dictate. By doing so he hopes to be acknowledged by the people as deliverer from the yoke, and as the cause of prosperity in the world. Religion he will endeavor to make convenient. He will say that you need not fast and embitter your life by renunciation…It will suffice to love God…He will preach free love and tear asunder family ties. He will scorn everything holy, and he will ridicule all graces of the Church with devilish mockery. He will condemn humility and foster proud and gruesome dogmas. He will tear down that which God has taught in the Old and New Testament and maintain sin and vice are not sin and vice…He will ally himself with the kings, the princes and the powerful ones of the earth; he will condemn humility and will extol all the doctrines of pride. His magic art will feign the most astonishing prodigies.”

“And Do Not Abandon Us To Temptation.” A Critical Commentary


“Roma locuta, causa finita.” As it was easy to foretell (http://magister.blogautore.espresso.repubblica.it/2018/03/07/pater-noster-no-peace-the-battle-begins-among-the-translations/), the Italian bishops have fulfilled (https://www.chiesacattolica.it/messale-ecco-la-nuova-edizione/) the wish expressed by Pope Francis to replace an invocation in the Our Father used at Mass, “and lead us not into temptation,” with “and do not abandon us to temptation.”

The “old” version was not even put to a vote, so that it was impossible to defend it. Because according to Francis (https://www.tv2000.it/padrenostro/video/padre-nostro-settima-puntata-non-ci-indurre-in-tentazione/) it is only the devil who tempts, and it is not admissible that God too could “lead” us - literally, “bring [us] inside,” as in the Latin “inducas” and in the original Greek of the Gospel, “eisenènkes” - into temptation.

The English version of the “Our Father” in use in the United States has remained faithful to the original evangelical text: “And lead us not into temptation.” While agreeing with the wishes of Pope Francis are both the new translation in use in France and other French speaking countries - “Et ne nous laisse pas entrer en tentation” - and the one in use in various Spanish-speaking countries, including Argentina: “Y no nos dejes caer en la tentación.”

But to be strictly logical, if God cannot “lead” us into temptation, it is not clear why he should instead be allowed to “abandon us” to it. For two millennia, the Church has never dreamed of changing that difficult word of the Gospel, but has instead interpreted and explained it in its authentic meaning.

This is the launching point of the reflection that follows.

Silvio Brachetta, the author, is a diplomat at the Institute of Religious Sciences in Trieste, and has dedicated himself in particular to the study of the theology of Saint Bonaventure of Bagnoregio. He writes for the diocesan weekly “Vita Nuova.”
*
A brief reflection on the “new” Our Father
by Silvio Brachetta

It is not clear why a God who “leads” us, brings us inside temptation, should be worse than a God who “abandons” us to it. It is a mystery of modern exegesis, but also of human presumption, at least according to the desert father Saint Anthony:
“One day some of the elders made a visit to Fr. Anthony; with them was Fr. Joseph. Now the elder, to put them to the test, proposed to them a word from the Scripture and began from the youngest to ask them its meaning. Each of them spoke according to his capacity. But to each of them the elder said: ‘You have not found it.’ Last he asked Fr. Joseph: ‘And you, what do you say of this word?’ He replied: ‘I do not know.’ Fr. Anthony then said: Fr. Joseph has indeed found the way, because he has said: ‘I do not know’” (Apophthegmata Patrum, 80d; PJ XV, 4).

In the Sacred Scriptures there are things that are easy to understand, things that are difficult, and things that cannot be understood: does anyone remember this? No, all forgotten. The literal meaning rules and guides the other meanings of the Scriptures: does anyone remember this? No, all forgotten. The exegesis of texts cannot betray the exegesis of the fathers and doctors of the Church: does anyone remember this? No, all forgotten.

As for what God does, it should be clear how the God who in the “Our Father” leads into temptation is the same God who has Jesus say: “My God, my God, why have you abandoned me?” (Mk 15:34). There is no doubt - and in the magisterium of the Church there has never been any doubt - that the Greek “eisenènkes” of the “Our Father” expresses movement to a place and that the Aramaic “sabactàni” of Mk 15:34 signifies abandonment.

It is also true that the interpretation of these evangelical passages on the part of Saint Thomas or Saint Augustine may leave the reader dissatisfied, because the doctors know well that “fides at ratio” are in harmony but by no means coincident. Saint Thomas and Saint Augustine examine the mystery, but they do so in humility: at times they are able to satisfy fully and wisely a certain inquiry, but other times they can respond to or satisfy partially those who seek an explanation.

Contemporary theological activity is often indecent, because it intends to force those inviolable doors of mystery, which Hildegard of Bingen strongly advises not to violate (cf. “The book of the divine works”). Whence so much arrogance? How in the world has the modern theologian become incapable of saying “I do not know” in the face of questions on which God has decreed that the mystery should remain? Even the pagans were often more humble than many of our contemporaries. “I am all that was, is, and will be; and no mortal or god shall ever lift my garment,” says the Sibyl of Plutarch (“On Fate”).

It is as ancient as the world, the art of forcing or falsifying a text, when the word is incomprehensible or does not meet the expectations of our caprice. But likewise ancient as the world is the art of humility, the art of the faithful scribe, who hands on the voice of God by recopying the Scriptures and seeking to be precise, syllable after syllable, on what has been received from the fathers.

The truth has been confessed by the saints time and again: the God who “brings us inside” temptation is good, just like the God who “abandons” us to it. And he is good because he hears the prayer of the penitent, who insistently asks: “lead us not, do not abandon us.” God, therefore, does not lead and does not abandon those children who convert and pray to him, but he abandons the impious, who blasphemes him.

The mystery endures, and the reality of “perdition” - the Hebrew “abbadon” of Revelation (9:11) - cannot be crossed out with a forger’s pen. There exists, therefore, the “angel of the abyss” (ibid), because God permits him to exist, just as he permits hell and the possibility of damnation. Behind the negation of the evangelical “ne nos inducas” is the presumptuous rejection of a scandal: the scandal of the eternal perdition of the impious and the very fact that Christ could be a “stumbling block” himself, in fact a “scandal.”

Impending General Calamities,

Page 97
But impiety is the derangement of human reason. Like the bat, these men are
rendered more blind by the very light that should convert them to eternal truth.
They are irritated by disappointment and maddened by failure. In imitation of the
Jєωιѕн high-priests, chief magistrates, and hypocritical Pharisees, they have
gathered their clandestine councils, and in their secret conventicles they have said,
What are we doing? This man, Jesus, doeth many miracles in favor and for the
protection of his Church, and of his Vicar, the Pope of Rome; if we let him alone
so, all men will believe in him. (St. John xi. 47.) Their unanimous resolution has
been to put him and his Church to a speedy and violent death. The death-warrant
has been signed and issued; the executioners have been selected and appointed; the
inexorable word of command has been given. Behold, then, the Prussian infidel,
the Bavarian Döllingerite, and the Italian apostate governments in union with, and
assisted by, the effete Turkish Empire, and helped by the red republicans of Spain
and Switzerland, busy in forging weapons and in sharpening their malignant
tongues against the infallible Vicar of Jesus Christ and against his Holy Church.

It is not unlikely, but, on the contrary, a well-founded rumor warns us, that an
attempt will be made at the first opportunity to thrust upon St. Peter’s throne an
anti-pope, in order to create a schism in the Church Catholic. They have adopted
the maxim: Division is weakness. Divide et impera. Divide to crush.

Page 98
Our invincible hope is founded upon the nature of the Church of Jesus Christ,
and upon his infallible divine promises. In the world you shall have distress, he
says, but have confidence. I have overcome the world. (St. John xvi. 33.) Behold, I
am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world. (St. Matt. xxviii. 18.)
We Catholics most fully and most firmly believe that Jesus Christ is the Head of
the Church. He is the Savior of the body. Christ cherisheth the Church, for we are
members of his body, of his flesh, and of his bones, that we may in all things grow
up in him. (Eph.iv.15.)


This throne and kingdom of David is the spiritual kingdom of Jesus, namely, his
Holy Catholic Church. We have learned this truth from the words of the Archangel
Gabriel, who said to the Virgin Mary: Fear not, Mary, for thou hast found grace
with God. Behold, thou shalt conceive in thy womb, and shalt bring forth a son,
and thou shalt call his name Jesus. He shall be great, and shall be called the Son
of the Most High; and the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of David his
father, and he shall reign in the house of Jacob forever, and of his kingdom there
shall be no end. (Luke i. 30.)

Page 99
. . . A terrible confusion of ideas and practices predominates in
every earthly, political, and religious system. The so-called ministers of the
modern gospel are made and unmade, according to the passing whims of those
who condescend to sit under their pulpits, and whom these licensed preachers
study to please and flatter in order to secure a longer lease of their place and salary.
This fact proves the actual realization of St. Paul’s prophecy, who wrote: There
shall be a time when they (false Christians) will not bear sound doctrine, but
according to their own desires they will heap to themselves teachers having itching
ears, and will turn away indeed their hearing from the truth, and will be turned to
fables. (2 Tim. iv. 3.)
The antichristian maxims, adopted by modern sectaries and forced upon civil
governments, have shorn them of their dignity and strength, and crippled their
power and energy for good. The sovereign people refuse to be governed, but aspire
to dominion, and those who should obey, pretend to command. Dignities are
prostituted to personal ambition, the common good is sacrificed to official rapacity,
immorality and crime are rather stimulated than checked and punished by many in
high stations and official power. Humanity groans in a dismal and appalling chaos
of disorder and misery. The human heart longs for order, stability, security, justice,
and peace.

Reverend Elwood Sylvester Berry was professor at Mount Saint Mary’s Seminary in Maryland. He wrote a number of commentaries on the Bible, including the Book of Revelation.

"The followers of Antichrist will be marked with a character in imitation of the sign that St. John saw upon the foreheads of the servants of God. This indicates that Antichrist and his prophet will introduce ceremonies to imitate the Sacraments of the Church. In fact there will be a complete organization a church of Satan set up in opposition to the Church of Christ. Satan will assume the part of God the Father; Antichrist will be honored as Saviour, and his prophet will usurp the role of Pope. Their ceremonies will counterfeit the Sacraments and their works of magic be heralded as miracles. A similar project was attempted in the fourth century when Julian the Apostate counterfeited Catholic worship with pagan ceremonies in honor of Mithras and Cybele. He established a priesthood and instituted ceremonies in imitation of Baptism and Confirmation."

Antichrist will assume the role of Messias; his prophet will act the part of Pope; and there will be imitations of the Sacraments of the Church. There will also be lying wonders in imitation of the miracles wrought in the Church."

CHAPTER VII. pages 120 -121

PROPHETICAL PREVISIONS AND PREDICTIONS OF THE
VENERABLE BARTHOLOMEW HOLZHAUSER.

THE venerable Bartholomew Holzhauser is considered one of the most
enlightened commentators of the Apocalypse. His interpretation is evidently
the work of Divine inspiration. Having once been asked where he could have
received such extraordinary lights for the interpretation of so difficult a book, the
humble servant of God with tears in his eyes answered: I am nothing but a little
child, whose hand and pen his teacher holds and guides to make him write. Our
best guaranty for the prophecies of Holzhauser is the exact realization of his
predictions referring to events already come to pass.

Bartholomew Holzhauser was born in Longanau, near Augsburg, in the year
1613, and died at Bingen, near Mayence, on the 20th of May, 1658. He founded a
religious congregation of regular priests in the year 1640, which was approved by
Pope Innocent IX. In the year 1658, he announced that within a short time Catholic
priests would, under pain of death, be prohibited during one hundred and twenty
years to say mass in England and in the English American Colonies. In fact, in
1658 this impious and cruel prohibition was proclaimed in England and only
revoked in the year 1778, exactly one hundred and twenty years after its
promulgation. The same royal decree was extended to the American Colonies in
the year 1663, and lasted until 1783, again one hundred and twenty years’ duration.

So, likewise, more than one hundred and thirty years before the event, he had
foretold in the most minute details the French ʀɛʋօʟutιօn of 1789, all of which has
literally been realized. Let these few but striking instances suffice to enhance our
confidence in his Apocalyptic interpretations. This venerable man divides the
periods and the duration of the Church from Jesus Christ until the end of the world
into seven ages or seven different epochs. He founds this seven-fold division on
the seven churches of Asia, the seven candlesticks, the seven stars, the seven seals,
seven spirits, seven Tɾυmρets, seven plagues of the Apocalypse, and also on the
seven days of creation mentioned in the first chapter of Genesis. According to his
statement, the first age or special epoch of the Church begins from Jesus Christ and
lasts until the first persecution under the cruel pagan emperor, Nero; the second,
from Nero to Constantine the Great; the third, from Constantine till Charlemagne;
the fourth, from Charlemagne to Charles V, the pontificate of Leo X, and the
heresy of Martin Luther; the fifth age, from Luther to the Great Pope, Papa
Angelicus, and the Great Monarch; the sixth will open at the death of these two
great men, and shall last till the last persecution of Antichrist; the seventh will
introduce the elect to the eternal sabbath.

We are at present more immєdιαtely concerned with the fifth age of the Church.
According to the interpretation of Holzhauser, this age shall soon come to an end.
During this epoch, he says, faithful Catholics shall be persecuted and oppressed by
heretics and by bad Catholics. Everywhere shall be experienced deplorable
calamities and terrible wars. Kingdoms shall be disorganized, thrones upset,
monarchs killed. Men will cσnspιʀє to proclaim republics, and finally the Church
of Christ and his sacred ministers shall be despoiled of their property.d
Are these the predictions of prophecy, or the faithful records of history? Observe
that the predictions were made by the Venerable Bartholomew Holzhauser about
three hundred years ago. They have been literally verified, the last portion of them
under our own eyes. Now that, like Thomas, we have seen and touched, shall we
believe? Let us now pass to his more hopeful and consoling promises for the
immєdιαte future.

“At the sixth epoch of the Church, all unexpectedly shall, through the all powerful
hand of God, be effected such a wonderful change as to surpass all
human imagination and expectation. There will be a great and holy pope, and a
powerful monarch, who will come as the envoy of God to put an end to disorder.
He will subject everything to his power, and will manifest a great zeal for the
welfare of the true Church of Jesus Christ. All heresies shall be banished to Hell,
whence they issued; the Turkish Empire shall be broken up, and all nations shall
come to and worship their God in the true Catholic and Roman faith. Then true
love, concord, peace, and perfect happiness will reign supreme upon Earth.

That powerful monarch will then be able to consider almost the entire world as
his own inheritance. With God’s special assistance he will free the Earth from the
presence of wicked men, will repair all ruins and banish all evil. It is he who will
help to carry to a happy conclusion, after having passed through many tribulations,
a general council that shall be the greatest and the last of all. He will use all his
authority to have all its decrees executed. The God of Heaven will bless him, and
will put everything in his hands.

Bamburg, 1784, Tom. I. page 184, and Tom. II. Page 6)
