Lord of the Dance

The abysmal “Economy of Francesco” circus is living up to its reputation with a bizarre “interpretive dance” sequence, featuring a silhouetted pole dancer. Take a look:

According to Rome Reports:

“The Pope’s trip to Assisi was full of musical performances to receive him in the first edition of “The Economy of Francis.”

A group of young people performed a modern dance accompanied by a violin and the reading of a poem inspired by the Bible. It is from the book of Isaiah and is titled “Shomèr ma mi-llailah?”

Several young people read the different parts of the poem in their languages. The poetry could be translated as “Sentinel, what time is it at night?””

Sanctity is different now because of …. pollution?

The Dicastery for the Causes of Saints is running a conference for theologians, scholars, and “communications experts” aimed at redefining what it means to be a saint. Apparently the world has changed so much that what made the saints of old will no longer make the saints of the future.

“Fame of sanctity,” and “heroic virtue” are the sticking points for Rome’s Modernists. So in other words, the defining features of sanctity are going to be excised from the canonisation process, leaving us with garden variety “good people” becoming “saints.”

Bishop Fabio Fabene, Secretary of the Dicastery for the Causes of Saints, tells us that “the challenge is to find ways in which the Church and the world can share a religious and ethical code of ideas and experiences.

But, My Lord, such a collaboration already exists: I believe it’s called “Freemasonry”.

The banal Cardinal Marcello Semeraro, Prefect of the Dicastery asks, “What is fame today? If we measure it with “likes” then there are many people much more famous than any saint. What do we mean by being heroic in exercising virtue? Is sanctity something muscular?

Sanctity isn’t measured with ‘likes”, Your Excellency. It is measured with perseverance on the narrow path already trod by Our Saviour.

And just why are today’s prelates so preoccupied with gyms and muscles? See the last sentence below for a clue.

Cardinal Semeraro continues: “Living in today’s world as Christians means responding, which has been the case before. For example, when St. Francis of Assisi sang brother sun, sister moon, sister water, there were not the same problems with pollution that we have today. So there is a different way of addressing the topic, it is not enough to love the water, love nature, birds, today we have different applications.” [Emphasis added. Eye-roll added, as well.]

Alarm bells over Kazakhstan

The 7th Congress of Leaders of World and Traditional Religions is taking place on September 14-14th in the Kazakh capital of Nur-Sultan,. Pope Francis will be one of the honoured guests and will be giving the closing address. Other religious leaders include the Grand Imam of Al Azhar, Ahmed Al Tayeb, as well as Rabbis, Patriarchs and representatives of Shintoism, Buddhism, Zoroastrianism, Hinduism.

Invitees are supposed to be “the most renowned … clergy from around the world” so the Pope’s presence is a little mystifying. Bishop Schneider must be out of town next week.

Apparently Muslims are looking for to his visit because they think the Pope is “like a father” to them. That’s obviously because Muslims aren’t big on the Latin Mass.

Somehow, someone who hasn’t yet read The Dictator Pope figures that the Bergoglio is an expert in “mapping out the how and why of resolving and avoiding conflicts.” Hmmmm.

The first Congress was held in 2003, inaugurated by the then-President of Kazakhstan, Nur-Sultan Nazarbayev, “in a direct response to the rise of religious tensions and extremism following the 9/11 tragic events in the United States.” It was yet another bad fruit of John Paul II’s Spirit of Assisi meeting from 2002.

The main focus of the Congress this year is “the role of religious leaders in a post-pandemic world.” One would have thought that was fairly obvious, given the huge number of deaths these leaders are responsible for. Their role is FUNERALS for all those clinical-trial victims.

The promotional material contains a few code-words that indicate this is nothing more than a meeting about the New World Religion.

“Religious fundamentalism on the rise” means “the conservative Right is pushing back against the global cabal.”

Plotting a course for humanity’s renewal” is the spiritual component of Building Back Better.

“Global interreligious dialogue in the name of peace and stability” brings to mind heavily-armed UN “peacekeepers” detaining anyone who isn’t prepared to worship the Beast at their local Indifferentist lodge.

There is a final document to look forward to, as well. With bated breaths, we will certainly be keeping a close eye on that one – and going through the footnotes with a fine-toothed comb.

The Amazon continues to haunt the Church

Ever since the Pacha-scandal, Catholics haven’t been able to think of the Amazon region without an interior spiritual shudder. That day marked the sickening beginning of a nightmare that still continues, for Scripture tells us that pestilence is a punishment for idolatry. Worse than even a “plandemic” is the thought of God’s remaining punishments for idolatry: famine and war. And these have not been closer to our shores than at any time during the past seventy years.

So it is with grave misgivings that I see the Amazonian Rite is still being fabricated in ‘full steam ahead’ mode. One can only ask, why that is? Pope Francis is all for reducing the number of Rites, is he not? Yet, here we see a gaggle of Commissions working away to create – out of thin air – a Rite which will allow the “Local Churches to live and celebrate their faith, according to their native expressions”. Because, as is only too evident whenever the Modernist Church casts its net to the peripheries, it believes that the indigenous people caught in its snare of opportunism lack the intelligence to comprehend the Mass as it has always been offered.

Why else must every prayer, hymn and symbol be dumbed-down for the locals? Surely not, say, to enable paganism to sit side-by-side with true worship? Surely not to see demons usurp the place reserved for Christ alone? Because that is precisely what will happen if the Church continues its headlong path towards syncretism and idolatry.

If we hadn’t had enough of redundant terms, such as a absurd-sounding Synod on Synodality, the South American bishops, (Liberation theologians almost to a man) have given us a new one: inculturation in interculturality. Our shepherds are sounding more like Dr Seuss every day.

Anyone concerned about this new Rite being completely orthodox, decorous and edifying can rest easy. Cardinal Roche has it in hand. As a sworn enemy of the Latin Mass, he will no doubt ensure that the Amazon Rite displays the least possible resemblance to the usus antiquior.

Don’t forget that at the time of the Synod on the Amazon, it was suggested that women deacons be ordained in that region and that married men be allowed to become priests.

Move over Troy, the Amazonian horse is on its way. When it comes to the creation of this new Mass, we can be sure that Tradition will be tossed into a pot with some herbs and a baby llama or two, then burned as an offering to Pachamama.

‘Tis the Season for Gaia worship

The Pope’s 2022 “Season of Creation” has just kicked off: it runs from September 1 to October 4th. Those dates are pretty handy for all the Wiccan nuns involved in the Church since the Spring/Autumn Equinox falls smack in the middle of the “Season”. But that’s just a coincidence.

Its theme is “Listen to the Voice of Creation”, which sounds like another Gnostic attempt at ‘discovering’ what God really wanted all along, diluting the Faith and getting us ready for the One World Religion.

The “Season” kicked off with a World Day of Prayer of which only the most obsequious parishes took any notice: the others were too preoccupied with trying to pay their utility bills.

The European bishops contributed by showing their devotion to The Science with an alarmist statement written in the style of Paul Erlich or Al Gore:

“Our own Europe has been faced with a genuine environmental catastrophe that, in 97% of cases, is attributable to the actions of man. In the 27 countries within the European Union, according to a recent estimate, fires have already devastated a total of 517,881 hectares since the beginning of the year, compared to 470,359 the previous year. Scholars are already hypothesising the transition from our era (Anthropocene) to the next one, to which they have already given the name “pyrocene”, the effects of which are already visible considering that CO2 emissions have reached levels that the planet has not known for well over 3 million years.

3 million years, eh? The author of Genesis might have something to say about that. Speaking of Moses, the symbol for this year’s Season is the burning bush. Its creators tell us why:

“Today, the prevalence of unnatural fires are a sign of the devastating effects that climate change has on the most vulnerable of our planet. Creation cries out as forests crackle, animals flee, and people are forced to migrate due to the fires of injustice.

They certainly have a thing about fire, don’t they? Then again, considering where most of them will be spending the afterlife, it’s no wonder that these heretics are predicting a “pyrocene” future.

Below is another little snippet from the “Season of Creation” website. I really don’t know what it means except that it isn’t helpful and it isn’t Catholic. It isn’t true, either, since the voices calling for “protection of the Earth from anthropogenic climate change” are among the loudest in society these days. Muted, on the other hand, are the voices of traditional and faithful Catholics.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, many have become familiar with the concept of being muted in conversations. Many voices are muted in public discourse around climate change and the ethics of Earth-keeping.

These are voices of those who suffer the impacts of climate change. These are voices of people who hold generational wisdom about how to live gratefully within the limits of the land. These are voices of a diminishing diversity of more-than-human species. It is the voice of the Earth.

If Bergoglio had put as much effort into promoting the concerns of the Holy Trinity as he has to promoting Gaia, the Church – and he world – would be in a much better place.

Pope: Sweet song of praise for Creation has become 'anguished plea'
“A sower went out to sow” ….. dissent.

Paglia: Italy’s abortion law is a ‘pillar of society”

They said it would never happen – “they” being the Feting Francis Fan Club.

“They” said the Vatican’s sodo-clerics would never abandon the Church’s teaching on the sanctity of life. How wrong they were.

One of his closest (and most effeminate) allies, Archbishop Vincenzo Paglia, President of the Pontifical Academy for Life, has told media that the Catholic Church doesn’t want to get rid of the Italian law which legalises abortion.

Referring to the child-killing Law 194 as a “pillar of our social life”, Paglia then went on to say something vaguely Catholic about problems with the declining birth rate.

TOO LATE, YOUR GRACE. The cat is out of the bag. You are not pro-life.

Commenting on the abomination, Archbishop Vigano said,

It is emblematic and revealing that the sect of apostates who infest the Catholic Hierarchy and have occupied its highest levels find themselves aligned with the ideological positions of the enemies of Christ, not only on issues that are seemingly unconnected – like the psychopandemic narrative and green ideology – but also in the denial of the very foundations of the Natural Law, including respect for life from conception to natural death.

Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano

Speaking of abominations, no reference to Paglia would be complete without remembering what he said after Roe vs Wade and Dobbs laws were aborted. At that time, Paglia issued a statement on behalf of the Pontifical Academy for Life saying that “It is not right that the problem (of abortion) is set aside without adequate overall consideration.

Meaning that it is not right that the Supreme Court should strike down an abortion law.

Because – and this is his main objection to child sacrifice – abortion is bad for the economy.

Demographic suicide = bad. Killing babies = a pillar of society.

You can’t have it both ways, Your Grace. the more frivolous among us might suggest that you pick a side, but unfortunately, the side you have chosen is all too obvious.

Even ice-cream causes scandal in Francis’ Vatican

The humble ice-cream, so welcome on a sunny Roman day, is the latest in a long list of material accessories to the crimes of this pope. The delicious treat can now be procured virtually at the front door to Santa Maria Maggiore – so close that pilgrims have taken to traipsing through the church with their melting treats.

The Basilica is administered by Monsignor Rolandas Makrickas, formerly part of the Secretariat of State under the title of “Extraordinary Commissioner.” That tile is apt, as the good Msgr certainly has commissioned an extraordinary income stream for the Basilica. One commentator suggests that a cash business suits those prelates to have no wish to surrender their transactions to the scrutiny of APSA!

Be that as it may, one can now purchase one’s favourite gelati in the courtyard of Santa Maria Maggiore, to be consumed on the way in to the church. The geography of the location means that tourists and pilgrims must pass through the church itself upon returning from the gelateria.

” …security officers are exhausted because they have to spend their day explaining to tourists that they cannot enter the Basilica with a dripping ice cream in their hand and people are forced to finish eating ice cream in a small space in the middle of a parking lot.”

Further, the ice-cream company is a multinational from Switzerland, and its being awarded a tender violates the terms of Francis’ motu proprio on the Holy See and its public contractors. Rather than make an example of Msgr Makrickas, however, the Pope seized an opportunity to “accompany” the plebs and look as much like an ordinary bloke as one can while wearing the papal regalia.

Did God will a diversity of ministries?

The 72nd National Liturgical Week is currently underway in Italy with the theme “Ministries at the Service of a Synodal Church.”

As you can see, the switch from the “Catholic Church” to the “Synodal Church” is almost complete now, with “synodality” being tossed freely about at every Catholic committee meeting, conference and talkfest.

“Synodality” and its converse – the death of Tradition – is almost a fait accompli. Of course, being of Divine origin, Tradition can never really die, but it certainly can languish in a dungeon while the ape of the Church ploughs on with its programme.

Cardinal Parolin is there at the conference, drawing attention to the great transformation currently underway. He reminds us that these nouveau ministries hold “particular significance for the Church in the present historical moment.” Well, of course they do. These Synodal Ministries will ensure the extermination of the Latin Mass by making the new generation of lukewarm Catholics complicit in the destruction.

Speaking on behalf of the Pope, Cardinal Parolin quoted the pontiff and his desire that the legion of Made-Up Ministers become “experts in the art of encounter,” something with disconcerting undertones in these days of gay-cruising priests, semi-naked liturgical dancers, and episcopal beach houses.

But he probably just means that the Apostles of the Church of Nice will be trained (at the pew-sitter’s expense) to speak nicely about nice topics, referencing the nicest parts of Scripture and generally promulgating the virtue of niceness.

Except when dealing with Trads. Because they don’t count.

Thankfully, the Pope can rest his novel schemes on the solid basis of a predecessor. Who says Francis only relies on his own ideas? What balderdash.

Francis has reached back through the mists of time to draw on the perennial wisdom of the magisterium as it has existed for ……. the last fifty years …… to remind us of the reforms of Paul VI and to dreamily cast his vision for “the renewal of the Church in an increasingly “communal” and less clerical direction.”

What a relief for those billions of victims of heterodox teaching clericalism. After all, clericalism really is the main problem facing the Church today.

Parolin, ever the dutiful son of the Church, reminds the more skeptical among us that the universal priesthood must not be confused with the ministerial priesthood.

Whew. Thanks for that, Your Excellency. I’m sure placing those two terms in the same sentence and in the context of expansion of ministries for the laity definitely won’t produce that effect.

We are all priests now.

Francis serves up another heresy sandwich with Desiderio Desideravi.

The documents of Vatican II are often likened to a cake to which a teaspoon of poison has been added, rendering the whole thing unfit to eat. Our present Pope has taken that to a new level with his regular offerings of heresy sandwich: two wholesome slices of brown bread (sound doctrine) with a thick layer of heresy sandwiched between them.

His Apostolic letter, Desiderio Desideravi, is a prime example of this. With its calls for more reverent celebration of the Mass, and for congregants to be better educated about the nature of the Mass, most of its content is as solid as the homemade loaves baked by grandma on her woodstove.

Then we hear from Giovanni Zaccaria, professor at the Pontifical University of Santa Croce who really knows how to draw attention to that soul-snatching poison found lurking in the sandwich. (“Wait!” I hear you say. “The Pope didn’t say this.” To which my response is: this is how he operates; this is “his style”, as he is so fond of saying. Bergoglio’s “style” is to get a mouthpiece to explain what is really going on in his mind.) Back to Zaccaria:

“The first need is to understand the priestly dimension of the baptized. That all the baptized are priests, they participate in the priesthood, through the common priesthood of the faithful, they participate in the priesthood of Christ. Therefore, in that celebration, they are also protagonists”.

Well, not really.

In the Mass, there is ONE priest, a ordained man who gave up the promise of comfort and family life for the sake of Jesus Christ. But even HE is not the “protagonist” of the Mass: the protagonist in the Mass is Jesus Christ, the Second Person of the Trinity, offering His Sacrifice of Himself to the First Person of the Trinity, God the Father, through the action of the Third Person, the Holy Ghost. A priest simply acts in persona Christi.

There is no human protagonist in the Mass.

Of course, the Modernists always make a fuss of this ‘Royal Priesthood” thing, and of course, they have Scripture to back them. up. 1 Peter 2:9 is a favourite reference; a look at the second part of that verse gives a clue as to why this verse is so beloved of the modern Church: “But you are a chosen generation, a kingly priesthood, a holy nation, a purchased people: that you may declare his virtues, who hath called you out of darkness into his marvellous light.

It’s a handy little verse that can easily be co-opted by lodge-attending Modernists. They just LOVE Masonic-sounding Bible references.

Now, some might think that Fr Zaccaria is applying St Peter’s exhortation to the faithful in order to make them more appreciative of their baptismal graces and ultimately more attentive at Mass. However, reading more of his comments makes it quite clear, that this man’s intention – if not that of the original document – is to encourage the “clericalisation of the laity and the laicisation of clerics.”

The laity don’t kneel in Mass because they are a lesser form of priest, the laity (and priest) kneel as a sign of humility before the awe-inspiring sacrifice of Jesus Christ, before the grandeur of the Trinity, before the miracle of Transubstantiation.

We kneel because we deserve hell but also have a chance of avoiding it.

We kneel out of love and reverence – not because we want to be – or are, in some mysterious way – priests.

By the way, this final phrase could be taken to suggest that traditionalists, who are known for doing a lot of kneeling during a Latin Mass, simply do so because that it their personal preference – their “party.”

“When you kneel it is also a sign of the priestly dimension of everything you are doing. The gestures already exist, but they need to be understood, explained better, because if not, they become our party and the Mass is not our party”.

So what at first seems like grandma’s good and wholesome bread may in fact leave the recipient with a rather nasty taste in his mouth – if not a case of indigestion.

If only the reality was as insignificant as the analogy, since a heresy sandwich is something that harms not the body, but the soul.

NEOM proves that the world is not overpopulated

Some Saudi Arabian overlords have designed this ultra-modern, if not dystopian, mega-city to house up to 9 million people., as part of their futuristic NEOM project.

Although is has a few drawbacks (ie it is full of high-tech surveillance and will be run by misogynistic Islamists, people will be relying on bugs and lab-grown meat for their food, and non-elites will never see the outside world) the project does prove one thing: that planet earth, as created by God the Father, has plenty of room for billions upon billions of human beings.

Repeat after me:

The world is not overpopulated.

The world is not overpopulated.

The world is not overpopulated.
