Faithful priest questions Bergoglio’s Masonic credentials

A faithful priest has written a series of letters to the Pope, and has published them online since he received no answer. [The letters can be found here.]

Writing under the name Father Jesusmary Missigbètò:, he sets out the laundry list of serious problems with the Francis papacy, even suggesting that the Pope is Freemason.

Of course, there is no reason to believe that he will be answered: since the first days of the Pope’s refusal to respond to the Dubia, it has been pretty clear that Bergoglio is not in the business of “dialogue” when there’s a chance he’ll be shown up as the heretic he really is.

Despite that, it does the soul good, in some ways, to see one is not alone in one’s concerns about this papacy and that not every priest is a Modernist pushover.

An extract from the fourth letter follows:

O Father, why are you taking so long to rectify your obvious serious errors? Many Vatican analysts believe that you are part of ecclesiastical masonry (since Argentina you are officially an honorary member of Rotary International, usually considered close to masonic lodges). In fact, your errors go in the same direction as those of masonry: (devaluation of the Eucharist, homosexual cohabitation laws, abortion, anti-natalist measure of direct sterilization by hysterectomy, religious syncretism, etc. Moreover, Our Lady of Anguera seems to confirm this: “the poison is in the tree, not in the fruit” (3.790; March 16, 2013); “the poison is in the tree, and not in the fruit” (5.260; March 24, 2022).

V Such membership is forbidden and sanctioned with excommunication by the Catholic Church (cf. Encyclical Humanum genus, Pope Leo XIII, April 20, 1884; Code of Canon Law 1917, Canon 2335; Documents of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, February 17, 1981, November 26, 1983, March 11, 1985). Let us hope that Catholic journalists and intellectuals will have the courage to investigate, for the love of Jesus and his Church.

Is Rome disappointed about the end of Roe vs Wade?

After the Roe vs wade was momentously overturned in the united states, The Pontifical Academy for Life issued a very strange statement.

Perhaps this is not so surprising when we remember that the Academies are no longer Catholic, being comprised of globalists, abortion advocates, sodomites and so on. The Pontifical Academy for Life is headed up by the pro-sodo Archbishop Paglia.

Some of the more questionable sections – apart from only one mention of the word, “abortion”: “After 50 years, it is important to reopen a non-ideological debate on the place that the protection of life has in a civil society to ask ourselves what kind of coexistence and society we want to build.” Hmmmm. A “non-ideological debate”? The Vatican doesn’t want those nasty prolife ideologues always insisting on sticking to Church teaching?

And this in direct violation of traditional Catholic teaching, “….adequate sexual education” and what is perhaps a nod to climate-driven depopulators:

” … a powerful invitation to reflect together on the serious and urgent issue of human generativity…”

I may have missed it, but did Pope Francis bother to mention this wonderful pro-life development at the World Meeting of Families?

“It is a time for healing wounds and repairing social divisions; it is a time for reasoned reflection and civil dialogue, and for coming together to build a society and economy that supports marriages and families, and where every woman has the support and resources she needs to bring her child into this world in love.”

The Court’s opinion shows how the issue of abortion continues to arouse heated debate. The fact that a large country with a long democratic tradition has changed its position on this issue also challenges the whole world. It is not right that the problem is set aside without adequate overall consideration. The protection and defense of human life is not an issue that can remain confined to the exercise of individual rights but instead is a matter of broad social significance. After 50 years, it is important to reopen a non-ideological debate on the place that the protection of life has in a civil society to ask ourselves what kind of coexistence and society we want to build.

It is a question of developing political choices that promote conditions of existence in favor of life without falling into a priori ideological positions. This also means ensuring adequate sexual education, guaranteeing health care accessible to all and preparing legislative measures to protect the family and motherhood, overcoming existing inequalities. We need solid assistance to mothers, couples and the unborn child that involves the whole community, encouraging the possibility for mothers in difficulty to carry on with the pregnancy and to entrust the child to those who can guarantee the child’s growth.

Archbishop Paglia said: “in the face of Western society that is losing its passion for life, this act is a powerful invitation to reflect together on the serious and urgent issue of human generativity and the conditions that make it possible; by choosing life, our responsibility for the future of humanity is at stake”.

Archbishop Vigano on Freemasonry

The following is taken from the video interview between Italian journalist,  Armando Manocchia, and Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò. The English transcript is from LifeSiteNews.

A Manocchia: Can it be said that the West is in crisis because it rejects God and the natural law, and above all because it underestimates the value of life and has made a huge mistake from a moral, economic, and social point of view that has led to the current ethical drift and to moral decline?

Archbishop Viganò: I do not think we can speak of a “mistake;” it is rather a fraud, a betrayal carried out by those who, in positions of power, have guiltily decided to transform Italy into a colony partly of Germany (as far as economy), partly of France (as far as culture), partly of the United States (as far as international politics), and partly of the entire European Union (as far as fiscal policy and so-called reforms). We are always subservient to someone, despite the fact that our country has shown many times in history – in times that were much more difficult and troubled – that it can compete very well with great foreign powers.

The basic problem is that the governments we have had – since the Savoy Monarchy – have been completely manoeuvred by Freemasonry, deciding on reforms, declaring wars, drawing borders and stipulating treaties always and only on the orders of the Lodges. Notoriously Masonic parliamentarians, Freemason ministers, Masonic university professors, primary Freemasons, senior Masonic officers, Freemason publishers and Freemason bishops have obeyed the oath of allegiance to the Grand Lodge and betrayed the interests of the Italian Nation. Today Freemasonry avails itself of its “secular arm,” the Davos Forum, which sets the agenda for the United Nations, the World Health Organization, the European Union, the various “philanthropic” foundations, the political parties and the Bergoglian church.

But the fact that this coup d’état is so vast and branched does not imply that it is less real; indeed, the present situation is very serious precisely because it involves hundreds of nations that are in fact governed by a single elite group of criminal conspirators. On the other hand, there is no need to talk of “conspiracy theories”: just listen to what the main architect of the Great Reset, Klaus Schwab, said on May 23 while speaking at the Davos Forum: “The future is not built by itself: it is we [of the World Economic Forum] who will build the future. We have the means to impose the world we want. And we can do this by acting as a ‘stakeholder’ in the communities and collaborating with each other” (here and here).

The Ukrainian crisis is also part of this plan: “With the right narrative we will use the war to make you green.” Schwab’s advisor, Yuval Noah Harari – who sums up all the “talents” of the woke intellectual as an Israeli, homosexual, vegan animal rights activist, who is anti-Putin and anti-Russian, as well as fiercely against Trump – went so far as to state shamelessly: “In ten years, everyone will have a brain implant and eternal life in the digital realm… Google and Microsoft will decide which book we should read, who to marry, where to work and who to vote for…” (here). Harari is the author of various essays, including Sapiens. Da animali a dèi. Breve storia dell’umanità. [Sapiens. From Animals to Gods. A Brief History of Humanity] (2011) and of Homo Deus. Breve storia del futuro. [Homo Deus. A Brief History of the Future] (2015). It is the nonsensical raving of the transhuman man who thinks he can defeat death and make himself a god.

The fraud carried out against the Italian people was that of making them believe, beginning in the nineteenth century, that it was their will to free themselves from the yoke of the tyranny of the various pre-unification Italian states, under the aegis of the Piemontesi rulers who were obedient to Freemasonry; that it was their will to rebel against the authority of the legitimate Sovereigns in the name of “freedom,” without understanding that they would be subjected to much worse corrupt individuals; that it was their will to get rid of the Savoy Monarchy in the immediate post-war period in order to set up the Italian Republic in its place; that it was their will to join the European Union with the mirage of the Eldorado [that it would lead to wealth and prosperity], and then find out what deception all this represented. And who was behind these demands for freedom, democracy, progress? Always and only Freemasonry, with its servants infiltrated everywhere.

Perhaps the time has come for Italians to begin to decide their own future without it being dictated by full-blown traitors, and for traitors to be judged for what they are – criminal conspirators – ousting them forever from politics and from any possibility of interfering with the life of the country. Let the magistrates and the police remember that very soon those who supported this dictatorial regime will be considered a collaborator and condemned as such. A jolt of dignity and honor on their part right now would still be credible.

The Vatican’s music choices leave much to be desired

Someone in the Curia has a very sick sense of humour: whoever it is thought Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah would be an appropriate way to begin the tenth World Meeting of Families in Rome.

Now, in case you’re labouring under the false assumption that Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah has some redeeming Christian qualities to it, please study the lyrics. The melody is, of course, very soothing and beautiful, but the title does seem to have fooled many Catholics into thinking this is some kind of statement of faith on the part of Cohen.

On the contrary, Cohen, who died in 2016, rejected the idea of formal religion, presumedly because its demands were too high. Cohen said of Hallelujah:

“This world is full of conflicts and full of things that cannot be reconciled. But there are moments when we can… reconcile and embrace the whole mess, and that’s what I mean by ‘Hallelujah’.

The song explains that many kinds of hallelujahs do exist, and all the perfect and broken hallelujahs have equal value. It’s a desire to affirm my faith in life, not in some formal religious way but with enthusiasm, with emotion.”

If you’ve never read the lyrics to Hallelujah, then scroll to the bottom of the page.

However, the performance of that song pales into insignificance beside the presence of a very strange choir who entertained Francis earlier in June.

A group of women known as the F*** Cancer choir performed for the Pope at a General Audience. Their t-shirts were emblazoned with “F*** Cancer” (yes, the entire word) surmounting a clenched fist.

The Pope smiled his way through the performance, telling the choir-members afterwards that they were “good” and “poets.” As Reuters exclaimed, “The F-word made its debut” at the Vatican. Charming. Another first for Francis.

HALLELUJAH

I’ve heard there was a secret chord
That David played, and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, do you?
It goes like this
The fourth, the fifth
The minor fall, the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah x 4

Your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty in the moonlight overthrew you
She tied you to a kitchen chair
She broke your throne, and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah x 4

Baby I have been here before
I know this room, I’ve walked this floor
I used to live alone before I knew you.
I’ve seen your flag on the marble arch
Love is not a victory march
It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah x 4

There was a time when you let me know
What’s really going on below
But now you never show it to me, do you?
And remember when I moved in you
The holy dove was moving too
And every breath we drew was Hallelujah

Hallelujah x 4

Maybe there’s a God above
But all I’ve ever learned from love
Was how to shoot at someone who outdrew you
It’s not a cry you can hear at night
It’s not somebody who has seen the light
It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah x 4

You say I took the name in vain
I don’t even know the name
But if I did, well, really, what’s it to you?
There’s a blaze of light in every word
It doesn’t matter which you heard
The holy or the broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah x 4

I did my best, it wasn’t much
I couldn’t feel, so I tried to touch
I’ve told the truth, I didn’t come to fool you
And even though it all went wrong
I’ll stand before the Lord of Song
With nothing on my tongue but Hallelujah

Hallelujah x 17

No red hats for Aussie bishops

There has been weeping and gnashing of teeth around Australia’s chanceries ever since the Vatican announced the creation of twenty-one new cardinals. Poor old Great South Land of the Holy Ghost missed on securing a single new red hat. (In all fairness, the Holy Ghost probably left these fair shores a few years ago, after being coopted by Plenary members wanting to forge ahead with their Brave New Church.)

It seems that as progressive as our bishops may be, as willing as many of them are to stoop to the heterodox levels of this papacy and openly embrace Bergoglio’s synodal dream, nothing can persuade him to take notice of Australia and bestow a Cardinal upon us.

But it is not for want of trying.

First in line is of course, Archbishop Mark Coleridge. He makes no secret of his support for the union of sodomites, for the unholy jab and for every Modernists’ current pet project, Synodality. Coleridge even preempted the Synod on Synodality with his Plenary Council – our own attempt to reform the Church in a Masonic mould. Coleridge’s love of indigenous spirituality and his Gnostic ramblings made him seem like a good bet in the Red Hat stakes.

But Archbishop Timothy Costelloe gave him a run for his money, choosing as his new office a former Freemason lodge, and opening his cathedra for the purpose of jabbing unsuspecting passers-by with experimental gene serum. Now that he’s in charge of the Bishops Conference, he is in a position to do serious damage to the Australian church. Maybe that’s why Rome didn’t want his time spent on petty Cardinal duties.

However, Bishop Vincent Long looked as though he would be perfectly suited as a Bergoglio Cardinal – he has so much in common with McCarrick and McElroy, along with a love for James Martin and all things Jesuit. Remember, Long promised to keep children safe from predatory behavior while exposing them to predatory teachers using his anti-Catholic school curriculum – that sounds like something that would really appeal to Rome these days.

It is an open secret that Archbishop Peter Comensoli considered himself in the running for a Cardinalate, and his track record certainly looked promising. He even managed to arrange a photo op with Bishop Bob – although there are some who think Bergoglio wouldn’t have been impressed by that.

Bishop Bob with our own Archbishop Comensoli.

Of course, there once was a time when orthodoxy and a stint at Sydney’s St Mary’s Cathedral was a guaranteed pathway to the red hat, but these days of relativism, nothing is certain. Perhaps prelates who were once reliably solid in their theology have something to learn from daring to make their move to the Other Side. Abandoning the unborn babies by wholeheartedly endorsing the medical treatment created through the use of their dead body parts does not impress God, nor it would seem, has it impressed the Pope.

But then, maybe His Holiness had a very good reason for deciding not to appoint any new Cardinals from Australia: since he’s planning on racking up a fair number of carbon miles in the near future, maybe he simply decided that the Australian Church could do a little ‘offsetting’ and languish without any decent leadership for a few more years.

Pope: “I will save the environment by jetting all over the world, preaching about saving the environment.” Al Gore: “Who am I to judge?”

Handing out the Eucharist like Bratwurst.

Those Germans really are outdoing themselves in Making Heresy Great Again at their Katholikentag (“Catholics Day”) event.

“Catholics Day” is organized by the local diocese together with the Central Committee of German Catholics, a lay organization supported by the German bishops’ conference. According to the Catholic News Agency, at least one Protestant and one Muslim, both politicians, received Holy Communion – one straight from from the hands of German bishop Georg Bätzing.

At least in Victoria, the Archbishop has started hiding his Eucharistic indiscretions by ensuring livestreams no longer show communicants at the funerals of celebrities. Case in point: while Bert Newton’s funeral received much attention due to the reception of Communion by apostate pro-abort, Daniel Andrews, Archbishop Comensoli learned his lesson by the time Kimberly Kitching’s funeral came around. Very convenient that the cameras were pointed away while Bill Shorten’s protestant wife received Holy Communion…

The Bishop’s spokesman later said that although there is “not yet full church Communion between the Protestant and Catholic churches and therefore no general communion. A Protestant Christian who has examined himself, shares the faith in the presence of Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist, and comes to the Lord’s Table may receive Holy Communion on a case-by-case basis.”

Not sure that’s in my version of the Bible. Here’s what mine says: Therefore whosoever shall eat this bread, or drink the chalice of the Lord unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and of the blood of the Lord. (I Cor 11:27)

Organisers had previously stopped a pro-life group from having a stall at the event because they were  “unable to determine that their organization was clearly Christian.”

Apparently this Bishop is notorious for his heterodox views on intercommunion and has been chastised by the CDF in the past. Undeterred, he has pressed on regardless, although one wonders if he has noticed any good fruits from his little experiment. The CNA article tells us that its German counterpart reports “Despite the controversies, a survey showed that most Catholics are not interested in the event. Attendance numbers are dwindling … “

Here a tweet by someone favourable to intercommunion. I guess they just don’t know what they don’t know.

(English translation: Signs of ecumenism… The President of the German Evangelical Church Congress 2023 in Nuremberg, Thomas de #Maizière , also received communion at the #Katholikentag closing service from Bishop Bätzing. “Just do it” is sometimes said. #kt22)

The Marx brothers being synodal.

The image at left was taken from the Katholikentag Twitter account. The English translation: “Cardinal #Marx criticizes “convoluted” church language – also in #Vatikan . For example, with the no from Rome to the blessing of homosexual couples in 2021: That was “not only theologically poor, but also wrong in the language”, says Marx: “You really put your mind to it!”

Plenary Push for Paganism

This was send to me by a reader and shows what’s behind the paywall of The Australian.

Catholics could soon be acknowledging the traditional owners of the land on which their churches, schools and parishes stand, before Mass and meetings.

The recommendation is contained in a set of proposals to the Church’s Plenary Council, to be voted on at an assembly of bishops and others later this year.

The draft document also calls for greater decision-making roles for women in the church, and considering women for ministry as deacons should Pope Francis authorise such a change.

Since 2020, a study commission set up by the Vatican has been reviewing the possibility of a female diaconate. The proposal to the Australian Plenary Council also says the Church should “remunerate more appropriately those women already leading and serving’’.

The draft document, which will be controversial among many Mass-goers, is in line with parts of the Greens/teals agenda. It emphasises “the urgency of environmental degradation and climate change and the call of recent popes for an ‘ecological conversion’ and development of an integral ecology of life’’.

In line with other faiths, as reported on Friday’s front page, the proposal “endorses the Uluru Statement from the Heart’’.

The draft document, given to The Australian, will be circulated within the church hierarchy on Monday.

It was written by theologian Dr Elissa Roper, a specialist in Synodality, and others, as part of a two-year consultation process involving two Plenary Councils assemblies and widespread consultation across the church. The process drew 17,457 submissions from individuals and groups, representing more than 222,000 people.

The first Assembly was held mainly online in October last year due to Covid-19. The second, at which binding decisions will be made, will be held in Sydney in July.

As part of the process, the National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Catholic Council, made a submission “in the hope that the Catholic Church in Australia will more resemble the Church that Jesus Christ wants her to be in relation to Australia’s First Peoples”.

NATSICC recommended that “the traditional custodians of the land on which the church, school, parish or organisation stands be acknowledged in a prominent and appropriate manner. Verbal acknowledgment prior to meetings and Mass is also encouraged’’. It also noted that “Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander spirituality contains symbols and rituals, that when used appropriately in Catholic liturgical contexts, enrich our celebrations and facilitate a welcoming environment for Indigenous Peoples.’’

The overall proposal urges the Plenary Council to joyfully accept NATSICC’s recommendations. The Plenary Council, it says, should say “sorry to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in and beyond the Church for the part played by the church in the harms they have suffered’’ and commit “to continuing to work towards recognition and reconciliation’’.

The Catholic Church in Australia, it said, had been caught up in Indigenous People’s history of dispossession, Stolen Generations, the undermining of language and culture, and racism.

The document also tackles controversial issues surrounding marriage and gay and transgender rights. During the first Assembly, it said, “the entire Council devoted its time to thinking of and praying for people who have experienced marginalisation within the Church, including Indigenous peoples, women, those divorced, those who identify as LGBTIQA+, and those who have suffered abuse of any form’’.

In a society that sees the Catholic understanding of marriage as “outdated and irrelevant”, it calls for an “urgent and clear need for a renewed catechesis on marriage”.

At the same time, “there is a great pastoral need to care for all those called to marriage, and for those who struggle to accept the church’s teachings about the nuptial sacrament. The sacrament of marriage is at the heart of how the church understands the sanctity of human life, from conception until natural death’’.

Davos – even the nuns were invited

Well, I must say that I’m starting to feel a little miffed about not being asked to join our betters at Davos. It’s hard enough missing out on being wined and dined by Klaus Schwab, and my revolutionary spirit rises at the thought of being accosted by the WEF Police. But to hear that The Nuns were on the invitation list while traditional Catholics missed out? That really is a blow.

Vatican News reports:

At the World Economic Forum in Davos, members of the “Sister Project” participated in a public debate with business people and human rights activists. The world needs “courageous leaders,” including women, said Sr. Patricia Murray of the UISG International Union of Superiors General.

For those who may not remember, the UISG was at the forefront of schismatic toil and trouble at the Pachamama Amazon synod a few years ago. It is full of feminists and would-be priestesses, so it’s hardly surprising to see them pop up at Davos to assist with plotting the Church’s demise.

The Sisters’ specific focus at Davos is Goal 17 of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals – to “Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development‘. That’s code for stealing from the rich to indoctrinate the poor.

Sr Murray obviously underwent her formation at the Pontifical Academy of Bergoglian Doublespeak: “Courageous leadership requires humility, openness to new things, acceptance of the risk of failure and new beginnings.” That sounds very familiar.

And why not? The Sisters rightly point out that Pope Bergoglio has made a huge impact on the business world by telling the atheistic communists at the WEF exactly what they want to hear – “We are talking about alternative economies. We are saying that we need change, transformation. We are saying the old models are not working. So, let’s try something together, the business world with the faith-based world.”

Gee, it’s almost like the Church and Big Business are getting ready some kind of revolution. Somehow, I don’t think they’ll forget our invitations to that one.

Some Freemasons are more Catholic than the Pope

This little story caught my eye: a non-denominational Christian pastor was expelled from his Masonic lodge for promoting same-sex marriage.

Once a Southern Baptist missionary, “Brother” Tag Thompson was running his own “non-creedal” church which had a particular outreach to the LGBTIQ community. Thompson had become interested in Freemasonry after reading the Da Vinci Code and joined after discovering Masonry’s supposed focus on exterior works such as helping the community and “fraternity”.

A Facebook post in which he offered to officiate at same-sex weddings drew the ire of some of his fellow Masons. Thompson had to face a tribunal of the Tennessee Freemasons and it was established that his behaviour violated their statutes: he was eventually thrown out, although some other Masonic lodges disagreed with the decision. Notably and unsurprisingly, these included California and Washington DC.

The conservative stance taken by the Tennessee Masons is quite a contrast to the attitude of our reigning pontiff who has an open-arms policy towards members of the LGBTIQ community – he has issued no condemnation of the German bishop attending a same-sex wedding, and has had little to say about the German church’s general promotion of same-sex unions. On top of that, the attention shown by the Pope to sodo-priest James Martin is nothing short of scandalous.

“Er, Jimmy, I get the the secret handshake but do you have to make it so obvious?”

So does this mean that Freemasons are becoming more virtuous or that this is evidence that they should be admitted into the Church? By no means at all!

Rather, it is simply another an indication that the human element of the Catholic Church is wallowing in the mire of corruption – so much so that even Masons are capable of making the Pope look bad.

New ACBC head has Modernist form

It is with great regret that I inform you, dear readers, that the new head of the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference will be none other than Archbishop Timothy Costelloe of Perth. Archbishop Costelloe is no stranger to these pages, of course. His dedication to corruption, Modernism and COVID jabs is second to none, and it is fitting that he plans to take advice on his new role from the former president and fellow progressive, Archbishop Coleridge.

The ACBC’s media blog reported Costelloe’s glowing remarks about Coleridge:

“It was Archbishop Coleridge who guided our response beyond the Royal Commission, represented the Church in Australia at the global summit on sexual abuse and steered the bishops through a pandemic and a host of other challenges. Archbishop Coleridge has been a calm and considered leader locally and in the global Church and will be a trusted adviser for me in this new role.”

Sounds like the Australian Church has a bright (illuminated?) future ahead of it.

Costelloe also noted that the Church, of which he is a Prince and for whose members he was ordained in order to “preach, teach and sanctify”, still has a few things going for it – none of which, unfortunately, are spiritual benefits. He said:

“The Church in this country is an immense contributor to our society, through our parishes, our schools, our hospital and aged care, our social services and countless other ministries. As we continue to contemplate how we live out the Gospel in this age, including through the Plenary Council, I look forward to working with my brother bishops and the People of God to carry forward Christ’s mission.”

So, just another CEO of just another NGO, implementing the SDG’s of the UN and WEF. If that isn’t enough TLA’s (Three-Letter-Acronyms) for you, then here’s another:

IHS. It represents the Holy Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Redeemer of the world, Who was crucified and died for our sins that we may have eternal life.

May the same Lord Jesus Christ restore His Church and replace His Holy Name on the lips of all lost shepherds – those who seem to have forgotten the role for which they are so handsomely paid and for which the price of betrayal is eternal damnation.
