(Talking about the SSPX)
These wise words of Father Kramer have much more meaning than anyone can imagine.
From a previous article about Krah:In January 2007, Bishop Fellay puts pressure on the Board Members to resign. He says that the Foundation prevents the Gutmann legacy coming under control of the General House at Menzingen. Bishop Fellay and Father Schmidberger instructed them to name Nikolaus von Ankershofen and Maximilian Krah as their replacements. Menzingen seized control of the Foundation and at some stage it was disbanded after transferring the legacy to the newly established Jaidhofer Privatstiftung St. Joseph und Marcellus which was legally registered on 14/01/2009. Management Board members: Dr. Nikolaus von Ankershofen, Maximilian Krah, Father Yann Vonlanthen (representing Menzingen).
We already know Maximilian Krah, but who is Nikolaus von Ankershofen?
Lawyer, member of the firm Ankershofen Goess Hinteregger. Look at the address:
Plankengasse 7 / Third floor
Now, take a look at the Jaidhof Foundation’s address:
Yes, the Jaidhof Foundation and the lawyer Ankershofen have the same address.
Mr. Ankershofen is a Director fo Mayr-Melnhof Karton AG, a Company with more than 8000 employees and Sales of 1.6 billion Euros (2009). It is listed on the Vienna Stock Exchange.
He is also an owner of Mayr-Melnhof Holz Holding AG, with 1700 employees in 5 countries and sales of 526 million Euros.
Mr. Ankershofen is married with Melanie Franziska Maria Ilona Gabriela Elisabeth Mayr von Melnhof-Saurau.
The Mayr-Melnhof Dynasty founded the Mayr-Melnhof Institute for the Christian East, based at Edith Stein House. What is this Institute? It is the Salzburg’s branch of Pro Oriente.
This is the Pro Oriente’s History:
Pro Oriente was founded in 1964 by former Archbishop of Vienna, Cardinal Franz Konig to improve relationships between the Catholic Church and the Orthodox churches from the East and Southeast Europe. “Pro Oriente is a child of the Vatican II and its guiding statements, and remains committed to future ecumenism”.
It enjoys observer status in the World Council of Churches.
The baroness Maria-Anna Mayr-Melnhof was co-president of Pro Oriente, a long-standing member of the board of Trustees of this foundation and on 2009, she was made an honorary member by Cardinal Schonborn.
Now, the Mayr-Melnhof Institute for the Christian East (the Salzburg branch of Pro-Oriente), was funded by the Privatstiftung Mayr-Melnhof, thanks to the baroness Maria-Anna Mayr-Melnhof.
The Director is Dr. Dietmar W. Winkler who, in 1989-90, benefited from a scholarship for ecumenical studies provided by the Rotary International and the Austrian government.
In 2008, he was appointed as consultor to the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity by Pope Benedict XVI. Dr. Winkler also serves as Head of the Working Committee of Pro-Oriente Salzburg and sits on the Board of Pro Oriente.
The work of the Institute takes place on three levels: research, pastoral outreach and ecumenism. Its ecumenical activity is structured through Pro Oriente.
Chairman of the Board of Trustees is current Archbishop of Vienna, Cardinal Christoph Schonborn. He is also listed as a member of Pro Oriente on the Vatican website.
The protector or Honorary Members: “On the proposal of the Board of the Trustees the Archbishop of Vienna appoints dignitaries to serve under the title “Protector of the Pro Oriente Foundation”.
Amongst several schismatic Orthodox are listed Cardinal Franz Konig, Cardinal Walter Kasper and Cardinal Johannes Willebrands.“The President of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, Cardinal Walter Kasper, has been appointed as the protector of the foundation "Pro Oriente".
The Foundation is funded by public funds and donations including sponsorship by the Mayr-Melnhof dynasty.CARDINAL KONIG
Cardinal Franz Konig, founder of Pro Oriente, had played an important role in the preparation of Vatican II, first of all as a member of the central commission for the preparation of the Council, then in the theological commission. He visited Athenagoras I, Patriarch of Constantinople, in 1961, in order to prepare his meeting in 1964 with Paul VI.
In order to encourage these ecumenical meetings, he created that year, the Pro Oriente foundation, whose objective is to “to maintain and promote ecumenical relations between the Roman Catholic Church and the Orthodox Churches, to deepen the ecumenical mentality and encourage ecumenical initiatives between Christians”.
Franz König participated actively in the Vatican Ostpolitik, he was one of the architects of this policy of opening up to the East, together with Cardinal Casaroli, Vatican Secretary of State.
Casaroli appeared on the Peccorelli list as mason.
Cardinal Konig also participated on the making of the conciliar document Nostra Aetate and wrote some articles praising this document.
Also, Cardinal Konig had a close working relationship with Freemasonry:CARDINAL SCHONBORN
Schonborn was ordained to the priesthood by Cardinal Konig in 1970. He studied in Regensburg under Cardinal Ratzinger and was appointed Cardinal by John Paul II in 1998.
Cardinal Schonborn had made it clear, in January 2009, in reference to SSPX and Bishop Williamson that: “The intention of the pope is clear. He wants a reconciliation with this group…”
but “someone who denies the Holocaust, Shoah deniers, cannot be restored to an office in the Church”.
Cardinal Schonborn was revealed as an alleged Freemason as his father. Cardinal Schönborn “celebrated” a secret-circle Masonic rite funeral after the Catholic funeral for his father, Austrian Count Hugo Damian von Schönborn. It is quoted Masonic Grand Master of Innsbruck Nikolaus Schwärzler, who said that Christoph Cardinal Schönborn canonized his biological father at the (intimate) Masonic Rite funeral with these words: “My father has now gone into the eternal Grand Orient!”
Also, on 2013, Cardinal Schonborn, “as a signal of close friendship between Christians and Jews”,
was honoured with "the Menorah for outstanding humanitarian achievement".
And the last one: Cardinal Schönborn Praises "Conchita Wurst":MAYR MELNHOF
Georg Mayr Melnhof, son of the former Joint President of Pro Oriente, founded and heads a charismatic, ecumenical, “New Movement of the Church called “Loreto”.
Georg was “converted” on Medjugorje, he is a pastoral assistant in the Archdiocese of Salzburg. He says he likes to be in Jerusalem during “Shabbat”
As well as helping to fund Cardinal Schonborn’s ecumenical Pro Oriente foundation, by way of the Privatstiftug Mayr Melnhof, Georg Mayr Melnhof sits on the Board of the Mayr-Melnhof Dynasty’s central business structure, Mayr-Melhnof Karton AG with Nikolaus von Ankershofen.Ostpolitik and Pro Oriente:
Pope John XXIII's Pacem in Terris
seemed to have adopted the Communist doctrine of peaceful coexistence first elaborated by Lenin, then Stalin and by Khrushchev: applying it in terms of a revised idea of the Catholic Church as the protector of man's temporal needs, as if these were more important than his daily war with his sins and his immortal soul; as if the conflict between the spirit of the world and the spirit of eternity were no longer given. It held to the idea that the Catholic Church could coexist peacefully with non-Catholic states, even though the historical record showed that non-Catholic states and governments always specialized in persecuting the Church.
Ostpolitik was the logical application of this new ideas, putting man in the place of God caused the Church to abandon truth, for the sake of a modus vivendi
with evil. The Church thus passed over in silence the truth about Communism's anti-human record, the gulags, the persecution of Catholics… The Church was prepared not to embarrass Moscow in public in order to accommodate the Second Vatican Council's new agenda of "aggiornamento"
: of reaching out to the world, abandoning Her anathemas, Her condemnations and judgments, all for the sake of a new "mercy".
This way the ecumenism (condemned by the Church of always) was born, an ecumenism where the errors, heresies and schisms are not condemned anymore, as if dogma and doctrine were optional for salvation.
On the strength of the promise not to mention truth, observers from the Orthodox Churches in Communist countries were permitted to attend the Council, even though the Church had no intention of challenging them to convert. Moreover, the Church knew that many of its members were undercover KGB agents, and that the Catholics were persecuted. Indeed, Moscow's genocide against Ukrainian Catholics was one of the best kept secrets.
In this spirit, as part of this campaign to draw a veil over reality, Cardinal Konig created Pro Oriente.
Here is where the wise words of Father Kramer we put at the beginning of this article, referring to the recognition of the SSPX for Rome, are opportune:"Let us not think for a moment that this wonderful "tolerance" will simply be graciously bestowed without a price -- without a quid pro quo that would require a morally intolerable silence on the grave errors of the Conciliar Church. It's the same old Ostpolitik arrangement Casaroli made with the communist regimes of the Iron Curtain; by which the Church paid for tolerance at a morally intolerable price of silence -- and thus became known as the "Church of Silence".
