As I've said before, the silence over the confirmed story of Fatima becoming an interfaith shrine is deafening. It's a fait accomplis despite the feeble, limp-wristed denial by Archbishop Michael L. Fitzgerald of the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue (a Modernist coven if there ever was one).
In fact, Fitzgerald's denial was so insincere and unconvincing that only Michael Brown of Spirit Daily bothered to carry the piece which originated at a site in England called 'totally catholic' - yeah, right! Note, I have it on good authority that several different people sent Brown John Vennari's revealing first-hand account - Fatima to Become Interfaith Shrine? An Account From One Who Was There. But the message-chaser Brown missed the most obvious message by refusing to let his readers know the truth; the same for another site that, with the exception of a few good writers, poses as Catholic while compromising with the secular mindset. It has no trouble exchanging the truths of unchangeable Traditional doctrine for the novelty-ridden "civilization of love." This is the very same pub, mind you, that carry disciples of the rancid, progressivist ideas of Henri de Lubac. Maybe that's a clue why they don't report the facts.
Now you might ask what could possibly be their reason for suppressing undeniable facts? Could it be that Vennari is a devout Traditional Catholic? Ah, there's the rub. Ergo, in their warped, ostrich-like thinking, Vennari therefore is not credible. I assure you there are few who are more credible than John Vennari. In fact, he, and 95% of the Traditional Catholic writers in the loop today document everything they write. So he provides proof, undeniable proof, cites the references, and refutes every lie spewed by the modern Vatican bureacRats. And yet John and the vast majority of Traditional writers are already judged, all regarded as 'not credible'?!? Yes, the great jurists of the New Order have spoken. Like the out-of-control judiciary system in the U.S., this self-appointed court of neo-Catholic press manipulates the news; they don't report it! There's a limit to blind obedience, but for blind stupidity well these neo-Catholic organs take the cake.
And speaking of cake and neo-cat mouthpieces of puff and adders, ZENIT - as always - comes in with a stale piece that tries to freshen a new angle, but leaves the reader with a case of faith poisoning. While one brave soul at EWTN (Father John Echert - see Time for EWTN to come clean) spoke out before being muzzled and any traces of his truth erased from memory (the expected modus operandi of VaticantwoArians), it took 23 days before ZENIT would say anything about the new Fatima Shrine, and when they did, what did they say? Why to praise it to the hilt with nary a word of the fact that it is to be an "interfaith shrine." Notice how deftly and deceptively they couch the spin: "New Basilica in Fatima to Accommodate 10,000 Pilgrims" shouts the headline of November 23rd this year. Again, positive spin by the VaticantwoArians when there is nothing positive about it. More blind optimism in the face of fatal pessimism wrought by the animus delendi of aggiornamento. ZENIT openly admits it will be designed by Greek Orthodox A. N. Tombazis as we reported in our last Hot Issues editorial A Shock to the Senses and Sensus Catholicus!.
We now learn the "A" stands for Alexander. Well, folks, thanks to the Italian newspaper Avvenire, let's listen to how "Alexander the Great" is going to transform the Roman Catholic shrine into a new age atrium:
"The shape of the Square, which descends slightly to the center only to rise again toward the Basilica, reminds one of a great wave that rises to indicate the infinite."
Ah, ha, we now have the reason the Mother of God chose this very spot to appear and impart vital messages from Heaven that would affect every single soul on earth: because it reminded Our Lady of a great wave rising to 'indicate' the infinite!? What "indicates the infinite" was the miracle of the sun witnessed by 70,000 and the powerful force behind her messages. All miracles that cannot be denied in light of all that has occurred. Now ol' Alexander, bless his heart, is trying, "I have tried to respect this atmosphere and its profound sense of peace." Well, if he wants to do that, why not respect the whole reason for Fatima: to bring God's peace to the world by one simple request: consecrate Russia - just Russia, that's all - to Mary's Immaculate Heart!
Yet, it's new age Feng Shui hooey that crowds his senses, "architecture re-works light and can make it peaceful or dramatic." ZENIT relays that 'Tombazis has given priority to daylight, which will come down on the new shrine from above, from the roof.' Well, duh! 'It will be possible to change the lighting in different places and with varying intensity, with the help of a computerized system.' There we are, folks, razzle-dazzle 'em and they won't know what hit 'em. Isn't that the psychological demographic profile of neo-Catholics? Change the doctrines because Catholics who subscribe to Vatican II don't have a clue.
Not mentioned in ZENIT's piece was the cost of this aberration. That would be $45 million and counting. As I pointed out in my last editorial who do you think would be gullible enough to pay for this Feng Shui hooey with a bit of Vegas built in? Why the neo-Catholics, of course, because, as we all know over the past 40 years: they'll buy anything that comes down the pike! Shepherdless sheep are that way, they run in herds even though they've heard the warnings. Talk about pulling the wool over their eyes. Can you say blind obedience?
But ol' Alex ain't done yet, as he enthusiastically waxes while the candles are turned into flares signaling Heaven that enough is enough. ZENIT oozes that there will be a skylights adorning the top, which, as the Tomb-'A.N.'-azi" man says, will be "pointed to the north, symbolically to the present shrine." Isn't that nice. They're going to "symbolically" remember that beautiful basilica - but only symbolically. He continues, "So the aisle, from the entrance to the altar(??? since when did the Novus OrdinArians have an altar? Maybe someone ought to wise Alexander up that 'Catholics' don't call it that anymore. Maybe he needs a crash course in Newchurch 101!).
He could be forgiven if he didn't understand because proselytism was tossed out with the baptismal fonts when they went to swimming pools. Speaking of that, it sounds like Fatima is now going to rival Raging Waters or White Water with their own wave pool. Whoa, dude, surf's up! Listen to this:
"In this plan I also wanted to introduce a mirror of water that transmits calm and that, while reflecting the colors of the sky, will reflect the serenity inspired by this place: a great Square in which the sound of the bells will reverberate as an echo of infinite peace."
Who's kidding who? The peal of bells will not echo infinite peace but be the death toll foretold by prophets of old, and Heavenly messengers, foremost being the Mother of God herself. If Alexander wants to reflect the sky, consider what he will see because Our Lady's plea was not heeded. The sun won't be dancing, that's for sure. The gospel for the Last Sunday of Pentecost lays it out quite clearly:
"...the sun shall be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from Heaven..." (Matthew 24: 29)
And, pray tell, how is this, this fancy-schmansy high-tech new fiddilica going to operate? Well this Greek Orthodox offers a gift of special effects.
"one can opt to light up the chancel and the areas of the perimeter leaving the congregation more in the dark."
Now we have the truth. Bless ol' Tombazis, he's telling it like it is and ZENIT, the newChurch and all the blind sheep of conciliar times are drooling all over his ideas. He told us all what the ultimate result will be: "leaving the congregation more in the dark." I didn't really think that was possible; to leave Novus OrdinArians more in the dark than they already are, but evidently it is possible. Considering their track record and feeble resistance to the novelties and humanist agenda, it's very, very plausible. These poor baa-baaers have been so dumbed down they've been fleeced and don't realize they're running around without a stitch of true Catholicism on their loins or anywhere else. They're naked and vulnerable before satan who, unlike St. Paul in Ephesians 6: 11-16, has no intention of clothing them with the armor of God.
As much as Tombazis may want to present these Feng Shui concepts, all I can say is: beware of Greeks bearing gifts!
