Pope Francis Rewrites the Commandments

Pope Francis’ October address to the World Movement of Populist Movements contained all the technocrat talking points with which the world is so enamoured while omitting the solid Catholic teaching which it so desperately needs.

Characterised by America Magazine as nine “Commandments”, the Pope’s list of nine areas in need of change indicates that the Ten Commandments as given to Moses by God the Father are no longer suited to the Modern World. In true socialist style, the Pope called for an overhaul of the current capitalist system demanding the redistribution of wealth and the establishment of a Universal Basic Income. Presumedly expecting governments worldwide to take his advice and pick up the tab, he requested that workers’ hours be reduced in an effort to allow greater numbers to be employed.

He went on to say that the world is at a crossroads and that for mankind to return to its previous course would be “suicidal … ecocidal and genocidal.” The Pope also said that politicians should not be listening only to economic elites. This is quite bizarre, coming from the man who regularly meets with economic elites like Jeffrey Sachs, Paul Ehrlich, Ban Ki-moon, and Mark Zuckerberg.

The Pope claimed that the Catholic Church doesn’t have all the answers, but does have “some principles that can help along this journey to provide concrete answers, and to help Christians and non-Christians alike.” Without any mention of God or man’s duty toward Him, the Pope’s nine “commandments” instead cover almost all of the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals:

  • Pharmaceutical companies should make patents for COVID “vaccines” freely available (SDG #3)
  • International credit institutions should cancel debt. (SDG #1 and #10)
  • Big resource corporations should stop polluting and stop destroying habitats. (SDG #7, 9, 13)
  • Food corporations should end monopolies and provide inexpensive food. (SDG #2)
  • Powerful nations should rely on global entities such as the UN for mediating conflict. (SDG #17)
  • Big tech corporations should censor “hate speech, fake news and conspiracy theories.” (SDG #11)
  • Arms manufacturers and dealers should completely stop arms production. (SDG #16)
  • Media corporations should provide digital education for the poor. (SDG #4)
  • The media should report in a moral fashion and protect those who are “most damaged.” (SDG #5)

The Pope continued with a nod to Jacques Maritain and his integral humanism, urging other religious leaders to promote disarmament as a means to “integral human development.” He then compared the Good Samaritan to protesters outraged by the death of the George Floyd, saying:

It is clear that this type of reaction against social, racial or macho injustice can be manipulated or exploited by political machinations or whatever, but the main thing is that, in that protest against this death, there was the Collective Samaritan who is no fool! This movement did not pass by on the other side of the road when it saw the injury to human dignity caused by an abuse of power.

For consistency’s sake, it would have been helpful to his fellow Catholics had the Pope also decried the global pattern of violence being perpetrated by police against unarmed citizens. Those workers who protest against draconian lockdown measure and vaccine mandates also have the right to employment instead of being shut out of their workplaces by the economic elites with whom Francis enjoys unending “closeness” and “dialogue.”

But then, why should consistency be expected from a man who blasphemously promotes, “in the name of God”, the UN’s radically antichristian agenda?

The Pope excludes unvaxxed Swiss Guards from his Inclusive church

In September, Secretary of State, Cardinal Pietro Parolin, announced on behalf of the Pope that all members of the Swiss Guard had to be fully vaccinated by October 1st in order to remain within the Vatican city-state. That date also marked the beginning of the practice of suspending the pay of any Vatican employee who doesn’t possess a Green Pass – the European version of a vaccination certificate.

The Swiss Guards’ vaccination was demanded in order “to protect their health and that of the others they come into contact with as part of their service,” according to a Vatican official. Of one hundred men, three opted to leave the corps, while another three have been suspended, pending completion of their vaccination schedule.

It wasn’t so long ago that the Pope was telling new recruits that they should be building friendships and appreciating their fellow Guards, “recognizing cultural, religious and social diversity as being a human richness and not a threat.”

Obviously, diversity of immunisation status is deemed a threat by this Pope. And I guess when he spoke to them about people “seeking security and a decent life”, he didn’t mean honest Catholic men in his employ who may have a conscientious objection to a vaccination, based on the doctrine which he, as Pope, is meant to be safeguarding.

All Swiss guards are Catholic and Swiss citizens. They constitute the world’s smallest standing army, having received training in the Swiss military. Their skills include unarmed combat and excellent marksmanship, although they are more commonly seen bearing medieval weapons and wearing rather flamboyant costumes. [Here is a short video on their role and history.]

Since their founding in 1505 by Pope Julius II, the role of the Guard has been physical protection of the Pope. Many have given their lives, including an entire cohort in 1527, who fought to the death to protect Pope Clement VII.

We can only imagine how heart-breaking it would be for these men who have pledged themselves to defending the Pope with their very lives, to now be told they are dispensable unless they allow themselves to be injected with an experimental drug developed using aborted babies.

To add insult to injury, the Vatican has shown openness to recruiting women to the elite force in the future. A huge renovation project, aimed at completion in 2027, will supply enough new rooms to allow women to be housed separately from the men – should the Vatican authorities decide to go down that route.

As ever, the Modernist lexicon defines words with reference to the globalist utopian dream. When it comes to the notion of “inclusion,” this papal administration always gives with one, well-sanitised hand while taking away with the other.

Francis Imposes the Freemason’s Mass

There was a time when the average Catholic in the pews could be forgiven for not knowing the provenance of the New Mass – that its chief architect was an Ecclesiastical Freemason by the name of Archbishop Annibale Bugnini. For those of us brought up on a diet of quasi-universalism, the “New Springtime” and popular apparitions such as Medjugorje, there was no other Mass than the Novus Ordo and “Tradition” meant nothing more than a dim memory of Grandma having fish on Fridays.

Those days of naivety passed away, however, as knowledge of Bugnini’s secret affiliation and of the extent of the devastation Paul VI’s revolution became mainstream. (Well, almost. There are some who maintain that there is no evidence while also admitting that Bugnini may have been something worse than a Mason – I’ll leave it to the reader to speculate as to what something worse could be. That infamous scene from Windswept House springs to mind.)

The fruits of Vatican II have been revealed in all their awful reality – if not before the “pandemic” then certainly since the Mass was first suppressed more than a year ago due to COVID restrictions.

The Novus Ordo was a failure, Vatican II was a disaster and the logical hermeneutic of continuity exists not in the context of novelty, but of Tradition.

These facts explain the gut-wrenching reaction experienced by so many in response to the pope’s Motu Proprio, Traditionis Custodes. Yes, the same pope who hates formality, scorns “clericalism” and always seeks to “accompany” people “in their concrete circumstances” (at least when it comes to immorality) has used his unique position to abolish the Latin Mass, deliberately ignoring the “concrete circumstances” of the largest remaining cohort of believing, practising Catholics and also greatly insulting the Holy Trinity.

Some have already attempted to play down the consequences of the Motu Proprio – the Rorate Caeli article, while a bold attempt at legalistically applying Traditionis, is in my opinion, only grasping at straws. The Pope knows exactly what he wants to achieve and will take all steps necessary to see that his wishes are carried out. This pontiff who despises legalism and the constraints of dogma will not be so lax when it comes to suppressing the Mass of the ages and the thriving parishes around which they revolve. As Professor Brian McCall says, the law is always to be interpreted “according to the mind of the legislator”. This means our own pious desires don’t have a leg to stand on against a man like Francis.

Francis, while claiming to be imitating the act of his predecessor, Pope Pius V, who abolished any form of the Mass that was less than two hundred years old is performing a diabolical version of that act. If he really was to imitate Pius V by his pronouncement, it is the Novus Ordo that would be abolished as it is less than a hundred years old and was impiously designed, as noted above.

It seems clear that very little wiggle-room is to be given to those diocesan priests who run Latin Mass parishes: unless they have a sympathetic bishop – which are few and far between – they will have to look for new premises in which to offer Mass. Those bi-rite priests, who may be at the first steps on the path of Tradition will need to be very strong in order to resist the approaching “Oath of Allegiance” to Vatican II. I suspect that some will now go “full-trad” when they realise the malice underlying the pope’s plans.

I do also wonder if there is another stage – waiting perhaps for a future, unworthy pope – in which the Novus Ordo will be reformed so as to make it invalid. A little tweaking of the words of consecration, perhaps, to which the newly-conscripted “loyal” priests will be forced to adhere.

In any case, this present insult to God will not remain unpunished: as we saw almost directly after the flagrant violation of the First Commandment during the Amazon Synod, God’s justice can be swift. The global “pandemic” which saw millions of faithful denied access to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the sacraments followed immediately after Francis’ Pachamama worship was nothing other than a consequence of the hierarchy’s idolatry, in accordance with God’s promises made in Scripture (eg 2 Chronicles 21.) With the Great Reset technocrats already predicting a global cyber attack, it is not beyond imagining that this will be the next “plague” to strike the earth.

Many have made the connection between Fatima and Our Lady of Mt Carmel, on whose feast day the pope released his Motu Proprio. There are quite a few connections, in fact: for example, during the Miracle of the Sun, the little seers saw Our lady clothed in the habit of Carmel, reminding us of the importance of wearing the brown Scapular. It is surely no coincidence that the 104th anniversary of that miracle was celebrated only a few days prior to the release of the Motu Proprio.

We must not lose hope, no matter what happens next. The prophet Elias for whom the Carmelites are named, is said to have had a vision of a foot in the raincloud that ended the great drought God had sent on the land. Tradition tells us that this foot belonged to Our Lady – the Woman through Whom God would incarnate His only Son. In our own time, we know that God is preparing for another great intervention: when Our Lady crushes the head of the serpent through her glorious Triumph.

Francis Preaches on Corpus Christi but fails to mention the Real Presence

Vatican News reported on the homily given by Pope Francis at Sunday’s Mass for the Feast of Corpus Christi. But instead of preaching on the Real Presence of the Most Holy Body and Blood of Christ, the pontiff played down the true meaning of the Eucharist.

While he mentioned the “Food and Drink of eternal life” it was lost in all the talk of encounter, community and welcoming. Continuing with what may be considered a theme of this pontificate, Pope Francis said that “a Church of the pure and perfect is a room with no place for anyone.” These are such strange words, as those who receive Our Lord worthily are no strangers to the Sacrament of Confession and thus do not in any way think of themselves as “pure” or “perfect.”

By contrast, the Sacrificial Victim of the Mass, Our Lord Himself, is the pure and perfect offering to God the Father.

Mass was offered at a side altar in St. Peter’s, rather than at the main altar, which apparently has not been used since the closing Mass of the Amazon Synod in 2019. It was at that Mass that a bowl containing earth and plants, not unlike an offering made to the demon Pachamama, was placed on the altar, in violation of Liturgical rubrics.

As is often the case with this Pope, he offered some words that would become very meaningful if placed in the context for which they were meant. He spoke of our need to be receptive to God’s presence, and of how the world becomes a better place when we go out and share what we have received in Mass. He vaguely mentioned God’s presence and Jesus’ sacrifice, but not in a way that would be offensive to a Protestant’s ears.

What Pope Francis did not explain clearly and precisely is the reality that Jesus’ Sacrifice on the Cross is perpetuated at each Mass, and that the Sacred Host is the True Body and Blood, Soul and Divinity of Our Lord.

This is the message that the world most needs to hear: that Jesus is alive and among us in every tabernacle of every Catholic Church in the world.

What Modernists fail to see is that Jesus is not present – in the Eucharistic sense – in meetings between Catholics and Protestants or in a social gathering of the poor and marginalised or in a simple hut in the Amazon. He is present, that is true, but not in His Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity, as He is in the Blessed Sacrament.

Do Modernists not realise that Jesus Christ comes to all people – to rich capitalists, to “rigid” Traditionalists, to “clericalist” priests, whose only crime is their orthodoxy – yes, He brings His blessings and graces to all those classes and to anyone who is in a state of grace.

As the Pope sat (he alone did not kneel at the sight of the Lord exposed in the Monstrance) he looked unwell and unhappy, as he contemplated …… we shall never know.

Let us hope and pray that one day before he dies – and that day cannot be too far in the future – this Pope will repent of his grievous sins against Holy Mother Church, reject his Masonic agenda and implore God’s mercy for himself and for his corrupt hierarchy.
