Just as we have an impostor in the White House, so also we've had impostors in Rome for the past sixty plus years. Keeping with the Gospel of St. Matthew, consider Christ's words in chapter seven, verse 15-20 where we shall know them by their fruits. If you would like to see the list of the conciliar church's "good fruits", click here.
Now that you see the percentage of "good fruits" you can see how the devil is so clever. The demons' chief enemy is one who we celebrate this week Saint Michael the Archangel, who could very well have joined Lucifer and his minions in rebellion, but stood firmly with God in defense of Heaven. Ever since he has continued to defend Heaven and marshal the guardian angels for the specific purpose of saving souls. His antagonist? Oh, he's been devilishly busy ever since. Who was it who tempted our Lord on the mount after the Savior fasted for forty days and nights? You guessed it. In modern times How many remember the bargain he made with God in the presence of Pope Leo XIII in a mystical vision that prompted His Holiness to compose the Prayer to St. Michael?
Do you really think ol' satan just sat back and said "no rush"? No, he's been working feverishly from that moment on and most didn't see results until the sixties. It might have been sooner, but thanks to God's ordaining Will, the devil's candidate did not prevail in the conclave that elected Cardinal Guiseppe Sarto, after the legal veto by Austrian-Hungarian Emperor Franz Joseph via Polish primate Cardinal Jan Puzyna de Kosielsko of Krakow prevented Cardinal Mariano Rampolla from gaining the papacy. As we know, Krakow would gain vengeance when they sent to Rome one Karol Wojtyla. Remember that part about "stupidity or sabotage" we introduced last week?
The decades leading up to the Second Vatican Council were idyllic on the surface, many falsely called it the golden age of Catholicism in America for there were so many parishes, so many vocations, so many nuns teaching the children. Churches were packed, Rosary processions were the norm and on the Feast of Corpus Christi all the parishes gathered in an impressive array of the devout to proudly proclaim "We are Catholic and proud of it." There are many factors that contributed to our "stupidity" back in the "good old days" of the fifties, which we don't have the time nor space here and now to go into, but will delve into that in the future...we hope. Suffice it to say, the saboteurs were at work beneath the surface, plotting and planning to infiltrate, wait, then dictate a new religion - one intended to please man, not God. God is being mocked and we know what St. Paul says about this in yesterday's Epistle for the Fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost. "Be not deceived God is not mocked for what things a man shall sow, those also will he reap. For he that soweth in his flesh, of the flesh also shall reap corruption but he that soweth in the spirit, of the spirit shall reap life everlasting."
We know there is corruption ever since aggiornamento became the watchword of the New World Order, and we know the spirit Paul speaks of is not the Holy Spirit, but rather an evil spirit for the Holy Ghost has withdrawn His protection of the false church because of man's stubborn will in defiance of the divine Will. To effect their obstinate mockery, the compromised conclave had to have knowingly or unknowingly bannished the Sanctifier and acted on their own to drum through their candidate to implement the agenda of Vatican II. Those forerunners of the antichrist (for a definition we refer you to the First Epistle of St. John, chapter 2, verses 18-20, 22) set the table for what we have today.
Last week this editor received an e-mail from a Novus Ordo presider who teaches in an Ann Arbor parochial school. Below are his comments which strike at the heart of "stupidity or sabotage."
I have found your website so very helpful on a number of levels. I think your analysis of the world situation is perceptive. Your analysis of the spiritual condition of the world and of so many of the faithful is likewise insightful. I appreciate the witness of the saints and doctors which you bring to the fore. I also love the devotion to the Tridentine Mass and everything associated with it.
My main drawback, and it is a serious one, is the rejection of the Holy Father and the bishops united with him throughout the world. It seems gravely wrong on many levels, theological and spiritual.
I would gladly donate to your cause, if it were not for this very serious issue.
I am so sorry.
Alright, 'Father', let's address this "serious drawback" of our "rejection of the Holy [sic] Father and the bishops [sic] united with him throughout the world." Shall we present Pope Paul IV's Cum Ex Apostolatus Officio or Pope St. Pius V's De Defectibus and Quo Primum? After all, you "love the devotion to the Tridentine Mass and everything associated with it." If that were true, you would adhere fully to St. Pius' infallible decree and realize if you love it so much that you need no permission from anyone to say the Immemorial Mass of All Ages - the Apostolic Traditional Latin Mass. But you cannot because the men you claim are true 'Popes' won't allow you even though St. Pius declared "by this present Constitution, which shall have the force of law in perpetuity, We order and enjoin under pain of Our displeasure that nothing be added to Our newly published Missal, nothing omitted therefrom, and nothing whatsoever altered there in." Perpetuity means forever. To emphasize this His Holiness set in stone: "Accordingly, no one whosoever is permitted to infringe or rashly contravene this notice of Our permission, statute, ordinance, command, direction, grant, indult, declaration, will, decree and prohibition. Should any person venture to do so, let him understand that he will incur the wrath of Almighty God and of the blessed Apostles Peter and Paul."
Do you think, 'Father', that men like Angelo Roncalli, Giovanni Montini, Karol Wojtyla, and Josef Ratzinger have not incurred "the wrath of Almighty God and of the blessed Apostles Peter and Paul"? Please read paragraph one about the fruits and what Christ said will happen to said bad trees. Frankly, we want nothing to do with any tree that will be cut down and cast into the eternal fire, thank you.
Now to the part about our "rejection of the Holy [sic] Father. First of all, everything these men posing as popes have done have merited them the title of "Unholy" Father, just as Pope Alexander VI was very unholy. Yet, and this is a chief difference between the most corrupt man to ever sit on the throne of Peter and the current crop of impostors is the fact that Alexander never broached heresy. While he was a lothario and murderer, he never contravened the holy Faith. Sadly, that cannot be said of the conciliar collective of pubahs who have occupied the seat in Rome. We have their own words in condemning themselves and excommunicating themselves (latae sententiae) and we have the condemnation of their words and actions not coming from us, but by the infallible Magisterium of the Church in such infallible decrees as the above references and Pope Gregory XVI's Mirari Vos and Pope Pius IX's Syllabus of Errors and Pope Leo XIII's Immortale Dei, Satis Cognitum, and Apostolicae Curae.
This, 'Father', is a very important infallible decree you should study for the sake of your own soul and that of your flock for it officially alerted the Catholic world and Anglicans that those ordained in Anglican rite of Holy Orders is not a true sacrament and therefore Anglican priests are not true priests, their Orders are null and void, and therefore no sacrament is confected, ergo NO True Presence on Anglican, Episcopal or Novus Ordo "altars" for His Holiness Leo XIII also referred to the nullity of episcopal consecrations (consecration of bishops). When one studies the Anglican rite and what the Magisterium of the Church rightly rejected, one is shocked that those Anglican rites are actually much more Catholic than newchurch's revamped synthetic so-called sacrament of Holy Orders, fashioned illegally by Giovanni Montini in 1968 with his novel revolutionary New Order nonsense in the counterfeit church of conciliarism. If Leo, through thorough study, prayer, and consultation with the infallible perennial Magisterium of the Church, determined that the Anglican rite is null and void, then there is no doubt that the Novus Ordo rite of Holy Orders and episcopal consecration since 1968 have to be NULL AND VOID as well.
Thus, to pose as a priest "seems gravely wrong on many levels, theological and spiritual", does it not, 'Father'? You need to do your homework, 'Father', for you have fallen into the 'stupidity' category as part of the mass collective that allowed the sabotage of holy Mother Church. Did you realize that the man you think is a true 'pope' isn't even a true bishop? Oh, he's a true priest since he was ordained when his bishop was still Catholic, but by his very actions at Vatican II he long ago excommunicated himself. Please reread Cum Ex Apostolatus Officio for further clarification of the authority he has. Also read Pope Leo's words which we highlight to the right so you can see the "one drop of poison" equation that determines the outcome if ever in doubt.
To further cement our argument that he cannot be called the "Holy Father" we submit as evidence Pope St. Pius X's triumverate of fail-safe measures to stem the "mother of all heresies": Modernism. For all the proof needed, see Lamentabili Sane, Pascendi Domenici Gregis, and Oath Against Modernism. The latter is the same oath one Josef Ratzinger took. An oath is a solemn vow to God and to break it has consequences. Ask the Almighty. We know for a fact said German subject has gravely violated his oath before God long before he ever was elevated to any other position in the false church. If you doubt that or question our assessment that he had no authority once that oath was violated, we again refer you to Cum Ex Apostolatus Officio in case Pope Paul IV's words haven't sunk through yet.
Now if the above is not enough to convince those who still cling to a man-made religion, whether it be Protestant or conciliar (that really is an oxymoron, isn't it?) then we place before you the infrangible decrees of two more true Popes; first, Pope Pius XI with Mortalium Animos in which he decreed on January 6, 1928 and sternly warned all to dismiss any talk of ecumenism. Why? Because only in the universal Church founded by Christ are the Truths manifested and salvation possible. This encyclical contradicts all the conciliar church continues to do today with their ecumenical bent by compromising the Truths and Traditions that Pius XI sought to guard so carefully. How perfectly His Holiness released this encyclical on the First Class Feast of the Epiphany for the three Magi, Kings Gaspar, Melchior, and Balthasar, as earthly rulers, submitted to the King of kings and subscribed entirely to the Social Kingship of Jesus Christ, something Pope Pius XI had addressed just over two years earlier on December 11, 1925 in his encyclical Quas Primas.
Second, we have Pope Pius XII, the last true Pope, who issued Humani Generis on August 12, 1950 in which he warned Catholics of the false opinions and errors threatening to undermine the holy Faith. We can see how those in charge today totally ignored his sage words and furiously forged ahead with their agendas so that when His Holiness passed on, all hell would break loose. And indeed it did. How convenient that 'Father' and all like him who are merely presiders and not truly consecrated priests ignore Pius' Apostolic Constitution Sacramentum Ordinis on the Essential Rites of Ordination for Diaconate, Priesthood, and Episcopacy with the valid and only words and form for Ordination, without which one is not ordained either a deacon, a priest or a bishop. Ergo, considering that Paul VI illegally changed this in his own Roman Pontifical, it brings up the necessary question: In light of this, are all cardinals entering the conclave who were ordained after 1968 actually ordained priests? No they are not. Then how could they be cardinals? They can't be and because of that, they would be legally ineligible to vote in Conclave and hold no authority whatsoever in the Church Christ founded. So I ask you, 'Father', how then could Josef Ratzinger ever be a true pope? Because the world recognizes him as such? Woe to the world.
But it is stupidity and indifference that has kept the truth from you, 'Father' and the rest of the clueless conciliarists who refuse to believe that we could ever have false popes or antipopes or even antichrists. Well, believe it for we have been in an interminable interregnum since the death of Pius XII on October 9, 1958. It has another name: the Great Apostasy. For proof of this, we refer you to Theological Position: Sede Vacante as well as our editorial The Syllogism of Sedevacantism as well as Are the Conciliar Popes Catholic? and to see the actual point - the Henry VIII moment if you will - see Griff Ruby's signature theory: Down the Yellow Brick Road to Apostasy: The Lumen Gentium Syndrome and several of his other articles and YouTube series at Straight Stuff as well as John Gregory's Faithful to Tradition essays, not to mention 62 Reasons Why One in Good Faith CANNOT attend the Novus Ordo (please take note of that, 'Father', for if you "truly love the devotion to the Tridentine Mass and everything associated with it" then you'll be honest with yourself and connect the dots.) There are many other links we could add here including documentation provided by Dr. Thomas A. Droleskey at Christ or chaos and you, 'Father', might especially be interested in his article Let's Play The Let's Pretend Game.
I might remind this poor misguided Novus Ordo presbyter and thousands like him what the holy Doctor of the Church St. Augustine said: "Wrong is wrong even if everyone is doing it, and right is right even if no one is doing it." The world today is topsy turvy where virtue is vice and vice versa. You have been duped, or should we say, deceived, lied to, frauded, 'Father', just as we were for so many years until we decided to seek the truth for ourselves and find out why we were lied to and deceived. It all goes back to that horned one kicked out of Heaven so many eons ago. A few years ago, 'Father' you contributed to a blog of 'Cardinal' Sean O'Malley, another of the apostate crimson criminals, and you wrote the following:
Letís work together for the upbuilding of the Church in this day.
We have news for you, 'Father', that "one day" has arrived. Rome has already "become just a shadow of its former self." It has become Modernist Rome open to the apostate invasion of infidels where the Red flag flies over the Vatican only to be cut down by the flag of an Islamic caliphate. So, 'Father', with the facts provided, if you truly want to "work together for the upbuilding of the Church in this day" you won't turn to men like O'Malley, but take a short trip up State 12 to St. Joseph's Church at 3521 4th St. in Wayne, MI (48184) and meet with Fr. Francisco Radecki, CMRI who with his brother Fr. Dominic Radecki, CMRI wrote the irrefutable work Tumultuous Times. We're sure he'd gift you a copy and help you understand that all we have written here is the truth and nothing but the truth, so help us, God. Fr. Francisco is just a hop-skip away from Ann Arbor, but the space he can make for you between you and Heaven will be amazing. We urge you to ask another who went by 'Father' until he, too, realized he had been duped and was not really a true priest. He is now, ordained on the feast of Sts. Peter and Paul this year by a true Bishop. The latter are few and far between in this day and age, but then did not our Lord tell us in St. Luke 18: 7-8, "And will not God revenge His elect who cry to Him day and night: and will He have patience in their regard? I say to you, that He will quickly revenge them. But yet the Son of man, when He cometh, shall He find, think you, faith on earth?
There is the trillion dollar (as long as the dollar is still solvent as of this writing, though slipping fast) question. Will Christ find any faith on earth? We have dedicated our lives to the odds that He will if we do our part, but we need more true priests. So, 'Father', isn't it time for you to pray and study, really pray and really study, then look in the mirror and say to Jesus: "I am so sorry." By the way, Fr. Francisco can administer the Sacrament of Penance and forgive sins. You cannot. That in itself, 'Father' should convince you just how "serious this issue" is. And, no 'Father', we do not publish The DailyCatholic to garner man's approval or gear our words for donations. We depend on God to provide if we do our part. That's why this apostolate of SANCTUS is a labor of love. It has to be or it wouldn't continue for if it is of God nothing can stop it; if it is not of God, it will perish. So also the counterfeit church of conciliarism and the Unholy Father who this very week is returning to the Fatherland to be received by an apathetic populace and protests against this man who the world is callling the "pedophile pope." An accomplice to pedophiles? Very possible. A pope? Impossible. But then those who connect the dots and totally place their trust in the invisible Head of the Church and the infallible, perennial Magisterium of the Church know that and are doing all they can to salvage what's left of the sinking ship which the VaticantwoArian barbarians have hijacked and held hostage for nigh unto fifty-three years and counting.
So, dear 'Father', if you really mean it when you write "let's work together for the upbuilding of the Church in this day" this is your chance to walk the walk instead of just being one who talks the talk. That goes for every single person who still maintain that these apostate contributors to Vatican II could possibly be pope from Roncalli to Ratzinger. Uh, no. We have presented all the evidence needed, the very evidence blessed and approved in the Highest Court by men who were blessed by God as true Popes. We have Christ's word on it, many, many saints and Doctors of the Church from St. Francis of Assisi to St. Pius X, from St. Matthew to St. Paul. We cannot stress enough to read and reread Galatians 1: 8-10 and 2 Thessalonians 2: 3-12 and 2 Timothy 4: 2-4 and then read the simple solution the Apostle of the Gentiles provides: "But be thou vigilant, labor in all things, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill thy ministry. Be sober" (2 Tim 4: 5) and "Therefore, brethren, stand fast; and hold the traditions which you have learned, whether by word, or by our epistle" (2 Thess 2: 14). We cannot emphasize enough St. Matthew chapters seven and twenty-four as well as Galatians 1: 8-10. It all comes down, 'Father' on what we have always said, "don't take our word for it, see for yourself the inevitable truth." We have another way of saying it: "KNOW THE FAITH in order to KEEP THE FAITH!"
If you recall our editorial last week, we referenced Professor Olson's 8 steps. Below is a refresher.
Now let us apply that to Vatican II. The progressivists who plotted the Council postured that the Church was in bondage and needed to be free. We have Roncalli's own words on that: "aggiornamento." They postured that it would render tremendous spiritual faith. Yeah, right. But the gullible among us trusted. Who wouldn't believe our bishops and pope?
With Vatican II the periti and enablers of it developed great courage that they could pull off their agenda. With this courage they foisted upon the religious the liberty that they didn't need to wear the garments of their vows anymore. You recall the nuns divesting themselves? Who knew nuns had hair and legs? Puhlease.
With that newfound "liberty" they quickly embraced the worldly ways of abundance. So much for the vow of poverty. From the abundance of doing whatever they wanted to do Orders and Congregations began to diminish, dioceses became power brokers for the militant feminist movement and so-called bishops became soft and moral relativism set in. With this descent, the work ethic was lost and as the addage goes, "Idleness or Idolness is the devil's workshop" or "it depends on what is is."
Oh, how complacent everyone grew and soon that transferred into apathy where no one cared any more what the so-called bishops and so-called popes said, the Protestant mindset had set in and we were living Apocalypse 3: 15-16 for we were living in a time of apathy where the term "lukewarm" would definitely apply.
From this apathy and the times, people became more dependent on the dioceses to sustain them where social justice became the watchword. It was merely a short drop from there to Communism as we saw with the push of liberation theology.
And so this dependence comes full circle to where with so few older priests around today, forty three years have passed and there are few true priests left even if they had apostasized, they could confect the Sacrament if they were saying the true Mass. Now we can probably count on two hands the number of priests who are doing that beginning with such stalwarts as Father Louis Campbell and Father Dignan as well as Father Courtney Krier to name just a few. With the great void, is anyone surprised that Ratzinger is bringing back the "old Mass" albeit with no semblance to the true Mass? Remember two things: First, Ratzinger was in on the ground floor of the revolution before and during the Council as a periti to Cardinal Fring of Germany. Second: Even if it were the true Mass those who were ordained in the new rite after 1968 were celebrating, they could not confect the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist because they are not true priests. If they can, then you and I can too. We know that is impossible, ergo: a Big Problem exists in the conciliar church: No Sanctifying Grace is possible from the conciliar sacraments. None. Period. Therefore the end result is bondage.
Yes, full circle over these past fifty three years and the only way to break out of that cycle is to seek spiritual faith, which is impossible with the void in the Modernist church forged by Vatican II. Ergo, we will delve into the third part of this commentary next week when we tackle the traditional movement for only there can be found Eternal Rome in this time of the Great Apostasy that pits Truth against Fallacy, Good vs. Evil. It's time to choose: Eternal Rome or Modernist Rome.
