Pope Francis: Is he the Pope or the False Prophet?

Over the past few months there are those who are claiming the Pope is not the Pope. These voices have become more hysterical as the crisis deepens (this is obviously the work of Lucifer to induce Catholics to abandon the Faith due to Francis' "apostasy"). 

Let us ask ourselves:

Who would declare the Pope has lost his "office", and by what authority?

Who would decide what "manifest heresy" is, and by what authority? 

I refer readers to an article written a number of years ago by Br. Andre Marie, in which he wrote the following: 

Regarding the possibility of an heretical pope and his consequent loss of office, I would like to present another argument. Supposing we were to follow the opinions of certain authors that if a pope were to fall into heresy, he would then lose his office. Then suppose that we were to apply that opinion to a certain pope. At best, what we have accomplished is to establish, based upon theological speculation, the possibility that the See of Peter could be vacant. That is all we could do, given the uncertain nature of this situation. At this point, the individual Catholic is at a moral juncture: Either accept a man as the Roman Pontiff whom he thinks might not be pope, or reject him. If he realizes that the claimant to the Apostolic See might be the pope — and he has to admit that he might be — then rejecting the claimant constitutes a schismatic act.  
Let me explain. This is what is known in moral theology as a “practical doubt.” About this “practical doubt” the Jesuit moralist, Father Slater, says the following. “If I eat meat with a practical doubt as to whether it is not forbidden on that day by the Church, I commit a sin of the same kind and malice as if I ate meat knowingly on a day of abstinence.” Apply this to the pontificate. If I refuse my subjection to the Roman Pontiff with a practical doubt as to whether or not he is the pope, I commit an act of schism. It’s a form of spiritual Russian Roulette. 

Let those who have already fallen into sedevacantism consider Br.Andre Marie again:

“Yes, and we all know what our Lord did. He deposed the high priest and declared the Seat of Moses vacant! Didn’t He?” The point is simply this: If the Man-God himself had enough respect for the sovereign pontiff of the law of types and figures as to say of the heretical Jew who was soon to murder Him, that he sat “in the seat of Moses,” how does anyone in the present law, the more perfect law, dare to do the opposite? Let me spell this out. Our Lord was not a sedevacantist. The evil deicide heretic who had authority over the “church” of Israel, was still the head of the true Religion. The religious society of the Old Law was still intact. 
Anyone wishing to save his soul could look to this office for leadership. Its sacrifices were accepted by God, and despite the abusive use to which it was put, the prophetical office was even maintained by this man. What did St. John say about Caiphas’ prophesy of our Lord’s death? “And this he spoke not of himself: but being the high priest of that year, he prophesied that Jesus should die for the nation.” No matter how you view it, the present Pope’s actions come nowhere near the iniquity of Caiphas.

Friends, the temptation to schism (and heresy) will increase as Rome darkens. DO NOT abandon the Faith for some Synagogue of Satan. The Church is ONE and She is visible. 

We have a lot of spiritual work before us. Are we ready and willing to take on this task? If we are, then we can delay the coming of Antichrist and his False Prophet. 

At the coming of Antichrist there will be an imposter on the Throne of Peter, a bishop, but not the Pope: he is known in Sacred Scripture as the False Prophet, and he will serve Antichrist. 

However, we have yet to see the manifestation of Antichrist, a Jew who will be the agent of Lucifer and a monstrous parody of Our Lord Jesus Christ. However, we do see definite spiritual and geopolitical signs that the stage is being set for the manifestation of the Man of Perdition. 

It is our duty, as Catholics, to pray for the Pope, as it was the duty of Jews to pray for Caiphas, the "pope" of the then, true Old Testament Church. The Jews failed in their duty, and Caiphas committed the greatest spiritual crime in history: Deicide.

With the Crucifixion of the Messiah, the Jews fell into mass apostasy and the faithful remnant of Israel entered the Church, the New and only Israel. Let us pray for the Pope, so that he does not commit the second gravest crime in history: becoming the False Prophet, and serving Antichrist.

Pray for the Pope, pray for the conversion of the Jews.

This Sacred Heart Friday, does charity reign in our hearts?

Today is the feast of the Sacred Heart.

It happens to be a Friday. So, the question inevitably arises: Can we eat meat today?

The question tends to provoke a sense of, shall we say, spirited debate online.

People fall on one side or the other of the debate.

Some say that since it is a Solemnity, following canon 1246 of the 1983 Code, one is freed from the custom of abstaining from meat on Fridays.

Others, using either calenders made by traditional Catholic groups or old missals, argue it is not so.

Being poorly trained in canon law and not having many years under his belt as a Catholic of good standing, this writer will not come down on either side with any sense of authority.

He will, however, ask a few pointed questions.

Do we not see Our Lord Jesus Christ kicked, slapped, trampled, beaten, and spit on each and every day?

Not just by non-Catholics, but also by Catholics baptized and confirmed - Catholics who should really know better?

Catholics like us?

How have we - traditionally-minded Catholics that we presumably are - disfigured the face of Our Lord Himself?

We all have a sinful past. We are still sinning. Unless we were to die this very second, it is certain we will sin again.

It is long past due time for us to pay for what we have done. It is fitting Sacre-Coeur falls on a Friday this year.

So, if we treat this day as one where we brag about eating meat on a Friday because the corrupt and disbelieving hierarchy says we can, perhaps - just perhaps - we are doing it wrong.

Perhaps we are adding to the disfigurement of our Lord when we do so.

Is it not time to perform small acts of charity to make up for the great acts of uncharity committed daily?

Pope Francis on the Multiplication of the Loaves: Most missed the REAL and FAR MORE DANGEROUS error!

I have read Pope Francis' recent homily on the Multiplication of the Loaves. I did not read anywhere that he actually denied the miracle of the multiplication. Even if he had, there is a far, far greater danger than denying a miracle in Sacred Scriptures. No, this is a much more subtle undertaking, and therefore much more dangerous. There is no crudity in this. The question might even arise, who composed the Pope's homily: a masterpiece of kaleidoscopic shifting. 

No, what happened was the Pope shifted the emphasis from the supernatural to secondary, natural effects of the miracle. The supernatural is downplayed - not denied, notice - and the natural is given pride of place. 



How many times over the past few centuries have the Popes warned about the dangers and errors of naturalism!

This shift to naturalism, to a horizontal "Christianity" that Paul VI warned about in the late 1960s has swamped the Church. Naturalism led automatically to grave errors regarding the Eucharist. 

One in particular is known as the "pneumatic presence", and it is very popular in the Church. And, it is gaining strength. The Real Presence, if not denied outright, is confused with secondary "presences", such as the spiritual, along with new ideas such as placing Man at the centre of of "presence". In other words, the deification of Man. 

This grave error, this heresy, is the implication that the Church, the people  at Mass, the congregation become the Body of Christ. In other words, that the Eucharist is the people. Specifically, when the priest says: "this is my body..." he is referring to the congregation becoming the "real presence". This is the "pneumatic presence" condemned in No. 39 of Mysterium Fidei. Consider the Eucharistic Congress in Manila a few years ago. There is NO GREATER ERROR than to attack the Dogma of the Real Presence. This shift, ever so subtle to wards the giving of "self", within the context of a homily on a miracle, rather than a direct homily on the Eucharist, is, in my opinion, a very skillful infusion of "pneumatic theology" into miracles that pre-figured Transubstantiation. DO you see where this is leading? 

Here is an excellent exposition of the heresy of the "pneumatic presence". I obtained this from a link at the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops' "National Liturgy Office" website. It has been on the CCCB website since 2010. How many Catholics have been poisoned with this? How is it possible that the bishops allow, promote it? Draw your own conclusions. 

A final question: what really, ultimately (see my comment on this word above in the second and seventh paragraphs) is taking place? In a word: transformation. Through the transformation of the Eucharistic gifts into the Body and Blood of Christ—that takes place through the medium of and in the course of the Eucharistic Prayer and the reception of Communion, the members of the participating assembly are being transformed more completely into the ecclesial Body of Christ and ultimately (that word again) into the full Communion of Saints. Without that ultimate transformation at least beginning to take place, some would say that we have Eucharist in name only, but not in reality.

All I want to do is vomit

A few hours ago, I came across this image from The Wild Voice.

All I want to do is vomit. And cry. Cry myself to sleep. Cry over this man who probably doesn't care that I am moved to sorrowful tears over what he doesn't do towards fixing the Church, what fresh heresy he utters, and whatever else he does to insult She Whom he is supposed to protect, not to mention Our Lord.

I love the Church. I came to Her relatively late for a person of my social standing, but I love Her all the same. I love Her more with each passing day, the more I learn about Her, Him, and Their people. 

This explains why I have such a visceral reaction whenever I see new heresies such as this one come out the one who is supposed to love Her the most and defend Her with a passion outstripping those of others: the Pope. The Vicar of Christ. The one who re-presents Him on Earth.

How does he not love Our Lord and His Bride? It is difficult for me to comprehend emotionally, even though I live with people who do not love either Him or Her.

I have long since come to the conclusion that he does not either believe in or love Him. I don't know if he ever has. 

Some people, for whatever reason, don't have those supernatural gifts of faith and love. I suspect the Pope is one such person, based on his fruits.

I suppose I should be used to it by now, but it is still shocking for me to realize - daily -  we are guided by an evil man, who is in turn guided by evil men.

All of whom do not love neither Him nor Her - either at all or as they should.

It is truly vomit- and tear-inducing.

May God help us, and strengthen our resistance, weathering this storm battering the Church of Christ.

We will survive this. But it will not be without blood, sweat, vomit, or tears.

Keep calm and resist on

Yesterday, this writer went to the local chapel for Sunday Mass, where a humble-yet-victorious procession was held for Corpus Christi. As we went along the paths around the property where Mass in the Old Rite is said, I felt an exhilaration at being part of such an awe-inspiring moment, no doubt fueled by the immediate physical proximity of Our Lord. This, this is what it means to be Catholic!

As I went home from such an awe-and-then-some moment, I read this post from Vox Cantoris. Vox is wonderfully optimistic in the piece. Not only does he rally everyone to fight together against Pope Bergoglio, reminding them of the facts of the crisis in the Church, he boldly declares that:

"[A] future Pope and Council will declare that this filthy pervert-protecting Argentinian and all his works, anathema. Vatican II will be corrected and its errors denounced. Of this, I have no doubt."

Vox is right to be optimistic and bold in pronouncing eventual victory through the means of resistance. I share his sentiments. By resisting Pope Bergoglio and his ilk, we frustrate them immensely. They have given us so many reasons to splinter, to fall into despondency and depression, and basically do nothing as we fight amongst ourselves. The current hysteria over the Amazonian Synod's discussion of viri probati is only the most recent example of this. This is what the enemy does in war, and since this is a war of the highest stakes - our own salvation through the safeguarding of the Church - we have to resist. We must resist. The best form of resistance is not only by actively resisting (be it through the priesthood, religious life, or lay state) the Bergoglians in their schemes, but by also adopting a mindset where we see what goes on, and carry on with the active means of resistance in spite of that.

This is what frustrates the Bergoglians the most: seeing Catholics shaking the dust from their sandals and carrying on the Resistance in spite of all attempts to sabotage it, be it from outside or within.

Fellow Catholics, do not fall for the schemes of the Bergoglians. Let us not break off into our own little groups and make fallacious declarations that we are the better Catholics than other Catholics because we don't do this or that thing. It is a trap, a clever one designed by the Enemy himself, who wins souls to himself through self-deception. Unfortunately, many Catholics have fallen for that trap, and I daresay that will not stop until we smarten up.

Please do not forget. We have Christ on our side.

He is winning, as He always has.

People are waking up, taking the red pill instead of the blue.

Yesterday, I noticed that there were a lot more Corpus Christi processions than even last year, but that may because I am more on the lookout than I have been previously.

Vocations have been on the increase. More and more people are entering the seminary or cloister, many of whom seem to be doing so for the glory of God and not themselves.

More babies are being born to God-fearing couples, many of whom are anxious to instill the fear of God in their children.

We are in difficult times. Change is fast approaching. We cannot deny that the Amazonian Synod is part of that. We must prepare for radical changes to our worldview, be they good or ill.

We must keep calm and resist on. Pope Bergoglio and his ilk will pass on, just as all finite things will. Christ and His Bride will stand firm, just as they have long before us, are doing so alongside us, and will continue to do so in spite of us.

EMANUEL JAQUES: Toronto's forgotten, little saint who was tortured and murdered by homosexual sadists

Emanuel Jaques was a 12 year old boy when he was abducted and tortured for over 12 hours by four homosexual sadists on Yonge Street, back on July 29, 1977. [warning graphic content]. 

Having raped and tortured Emanuel for half a day, the homosexual sadists finally murdered Emanuel by holding his head in a kitchen sink filled with urine. 

Yes, urine. 

Torture, sadism, perversion, abuse...

This is homosexual depravity at it demonic, satanic conclusion

St. John Chrysostom wrote about this great evil, its causes and effects. 

Emanuel was a Catholic, and a recent immigrant to Canada with his family from Portugal. I have written about Emanuel before, and will continue to do so. It is indeed scandalous that Emanuel is forgotten by the local Church. 

Holy Cross Cemetery in north Toronto,
where Emanuel's mortal remains are buried

I call upon the Archdiocese of Toronto to seek to have Emanuel declared "venerable".  

Today, in downtown Toronto, a godless hoard ("hell appearing before its time" St. John Chrysostom) will gather to blaspheme God and His creation ("male and female He created them" Gn 1:27) and to "celebrate" sexual perversion. In continued mockery, one of his murderers is out on partial parole in B.C. This is how much children are "valued" in our society.

During this time, let us turn to Emanuel in prayer. Let us pray that through his death, graces will be accepted by homosexuals (many, many who have succumbed to this vice due to sexual abuse when young) who will repent and turn away from sin. 

Let us now once again implore Emanuel to pray for us and for the conversion of homosexuals.

Emanuel Jaques, pray for us. 
"To all homosexuals we say: Peace, Hope, and Joy in your daily pursuit of chastity and holiness. God be with you! May you always keep in your hearts the words of St. Paul, 'You are not called to immorality but to holiness' ".  
Very Rev. Mgr. Vincent Foy

The sacrilegious Masses of serial plagiarist extraordinaire Fr. Thomas J. Rosica, CSB

Fr. Thomas J. Rosica, CSB, formally of Salt and Light Media Corporation as of this past Monday, is a serial plagiarist, caught redhanded after over 30 years.

Plagiarism, essentially, is stealing and lying about it in a written context.

Stealing and lying are mortal sins, as the Ten Commandments inform us.

Tom is a priest, obliged each day by his Holy Orders to say Mass, either publicly or privately.

Holy Mother Church teaches that when a priest says Mass in a state of mortal sin, it is a sacrilegious Mass. In other words, the priest himself perpetrates sacrilege, and he invites great judgment from God when he does so

Tom said countless Masses - such as the one above - while copying and pasting from the works of others without giving them the benefit of the citation since his first days as a priest.

Tom said Mass during the days Vox and Fox Cantoris opposed his attempts to bankrupt them, as he threatened their livelihoods with a ridiculous lawsuit based on lies.

Tom continues to say Mass while refusing to publicly apologize to and re-compensate Vox and Fox Cantoris, as well as the Chinese Catholics of Toronto, for making their lives miserable for no reason other than to satisfy his vengeance.

Tom continues to say Mass while refusing to sincerely apologize to each writer, academic and blogger he has stolen from without citation, all in the name of sounding original and furthering his own ego.

Tom continues to say Mass in a serious state of mortal sin, obstinacy and impenitence.

Given these facts, what are Tom's Masses but sacrilegious, and his priesthood a total joke?

That is all. Pray for Tom to fully realize the magnitude of his actions, past and present, and make complete and utter atonement for them.

Corpus Christi

Corpus Christi procession in the Vatican with Pope Gregory XVI.
The sun has risen in his splendor, while the sweet chants of the sanctuary have been greeting the coming of the divine Orient. The appointed ministers of the sacred psalmody have been giving, in the name of the whole world, the solemn tribute of Lauds to God the Creator and Redeemer; and now that the king of day is up, we behold a very busy scene outside the precincts of the holy place: the children of men are all intent on a work, in which neither the desire of lucre, nor the thirst for pleasure, have any share. Tidings of salvation have been heard; the voice of rejoicing is in the tabernacles of the just: "God is preparing to visit His creatures; Emmanuel, Who is present in the Sacred Host, is about to go forth from His sanctuary; He is coming into your cities and your fields, to hold court in your green forests; the Lord God hath shone upon you, He hath appointed this solemn day; prepare His throne with shady boughs, and cover the way to the horn of the altar with flowers!" (Psalms)

This announcement has excited a holy enthusiasm in the souls of men. For several previous days, many a faithful heart has had something of the feeling which animated David, when he vowed his vow to the God of Jacob: "I will not enter into the tabernacle of my house, I will not go up into the bed wherein I lie, I will not give sleep to mine eyes, or rest to my temples, until I find out a place for the Lord, and a tabernacle for the God of Jacob" (Ps. 131: 3-5). O beautiful resting-places where are to stand the feet of the King of peace! Short-lived but exquisite designs! The product of that sacred poetry which comes from the supernatural love of the Christian! We see them today, save where cold heresy has come to keep man from being too earnest in his worship of his Savior! On every truly Catholic heart, even on some who, at all other times, seem to be out of the influence of grace, the Mystery of Faith makes its power tell; and many a wife, and daughter, and sister, who have seen the other feasts of the year of grace pass by and produce no effect on those dear to them, on this bright morning have beheld them all busy in preparing decorations for the triumphant procession of Emmanuel (Whom they have so long neglected to receive), and spending themselves in getting the best of everything they can give, or procure, for the God Who is so soon to pass by that way, and, passing, to give these dear ones the blessing of a conversion! It is the wakening up of the Faith of their Baptism; it is the grace of the Sacrament of Love working at a distance; a grace of a reminder of other and happier days, of First Communion perhaps; and when Jesus passes through the crowd, He will look at them, and they shall remember, and shall be converted to the Lord (Ps. 21: 28).

he grand Feast has, at length, dawned upon us; and everything is speaking of the triumph of faith and love. During the Feast of the Ascension, when commenting on these words of Our Lord: "It is expedient to you that I go" (John 16: 7), we were saying that the withdrawal of the visible presence of the Man-God from the eyes of men on earth, would bring among them, by the vivid operation of the Holy Ghost, a plenitude of light and a warmth of love which they had not had for Jesus, during His mortal life among them; the only creature that had rendered to Him, in Her single self, the whole of those duties which the Church afterwards paid Him, was Mary, who was illumined with Faith.

In his exquisite hymn, Adore Te Devote, St. Thomas Aquinas says: "On the Cross the Divinity alone was hid; but here the Humanity, too, is hid;" and yet, on no day of the year is the Church more triumphant, or more demonstrative, than She is upon this Feast. Heaven is all radiant; our earth has clad herself with her best, that she may do homage to Him, Who has said: "I am the Flower of the fields, and the Lily of the valleys" (Cant. 2: 1). Holy Church is not satisfied with having prepared a throne whereon, during the whole of this Octave, the Sacred Host is to receive the adorations of the faithful; She has decreed that these days of solemn and loving exposition be preceded by the pageant of a triumph. Not satisfied today with elevating the Bread of Life immediately after the Consecration, She will carry It beyond the precincts of Her churches, amidst clouds of incense, and on paths strewn with flowers; and Her children, on bended knee, will adore, under heaven's vaulted canopy, Him Who is their King and their God.

Those joys, which each separate solemnity of the year brought us, seem to come back upon us, all of them at once, today. The royal prophet had foretold this, when he said: "He (the Lord) hath made a remembrance of His wonderful works: He hath given Food to them that fear Him" (Ps. 110, 4-5). Holy Church is filled with enthusiasm, holding in Her arms that Divine Spouse, Who said: "Behold! I am with you all days, even to the consummation of the world" (Matt. 28: 20). Nothing could be more formal; and the promise has been faithfully kept. It is true, we beheld Him ascending from Mount Olivet; He went up into Heaven, and there He sitteth at His Father's right hand: but ever since the memorable day of Pentecost, when the Holy Ghost took possession of the Church, the sacred mystery of the Last Supper has been celebrated, in virtue of those words spoken by Jesus: Do this in remembrance of Me; and from that day forward, the human race has never been deprived of the presence of its Head and its Redeemer. No wonder, therefore, that Holy Mother Church, possessing, as She does, the Word, the Son of God, is suddenly filled with wisdom. The Sacramental Species, it is true, are there shrouding the mystery; but they are only existing for the purpose of leading into the invisible…"

[These are the last words written for this work by Abbot Prosper Louis Pascal Gueranger. He was on the point of completing this section of The Liturgical Year, when death came upon him on January 30, 1875.] 
The Corpus Christi Procession

This solemn homage to the Sacred Host is a later institution than the Feast itself. Pope Urban IV, does not mention it in his Bull of Institution in 1264. We first find mention of this procession in a Council held at Sens in 1320: "As to the solemn procession made on Thursday's Feast, when the Holy Sacrament is carried, seeing that it appears to have been introduced in these our times by a sort of inspiration, we prescribe nothing at present, and leave all concerning it to the devotion of the clergy and people." It seems, then, that the initiative of the institution of today's procession was given by the devotion of the faithful; and that this admirable completion of this Feast began in France, and thence was adopted in all the Churches of the West.

There is ground for supposing that at first the Sacred Host was carried in these processions veiled over, or enclosed in a sort of rich shrine. Even as far back as the 11th century, it had been the custom, in some places, to carry It in this way during the processions of Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday morning. The use of ostensoria, or monstrances, as they are termed in a Council held in 1452 at Cologne, soon followed the institution of the new procession. They were made, at first, in shape like little towers. In a manuscript Missal, dated 1374, the letter D, the first letter of the Collect for Corpus Christi, gives us a miniature illustration representing a bishop, accompanied by two acolytes, who is carrying a Host in a golden tower with four openings. But Catholic piety soon sought to compensate the Sun of Justice for thus hiding Himself and His glory in the Mystery of Love. The Sacred Host was now exposed to the gaze of the faithful, enclosed in a crystal sphere, surrounded by rays of gold, or of other precious materials.

And yet the Protestant heresy, which was then beginning, gave the name of novelty, superstition, and idolatry, to these natural developments of Catholic worship, prompted, as they were, by faith and love. The Council of Trent pronounced anathema upon these calumnies; and, in a Chapter apart, showed how rightly the Church had acted in countenancing these practices: "The holy Council declares that there has been most piously and religiously introduced into God's Church the practice, that each year, on a certain special feast, the august and venerable Sacrament should be honored with singular veneration and solemnity, and that It should be reverently and with every honor carried in processions through the public roads and places. For it is most just that certain holidays should be appointed, whereon all Christians should, with special and unusual demonstrations, evince their gratitude and mindfulness towards their common Lord and Redeemer, for this so unspeakable and truly divine Favor, in which is represented His victory and triumph over death. And it was also necessary, that thus invincible truth should triumph over lying and heresy; that Her enemies, seeing all that splendor, and being in the midst of such great joy of the whole Church, should either grow wearied and acknowledge their being beaten and broken, or, being ashamed and confounded, should be converted."

Fr. Faber, in his Blessed Sacrament, has given us a summary of the sentiments of true Catholics during the Corpus Christi processions of the not-too-distant past: "Oh, the joy of the immense glory the Church is sending up to God this hour! Verily as if the world was all unfallen still. We think, and, as we think, the thoughts are like so many successive tidal waves filling our whole souls with the fullness of delight, of all the thousands of Masses which are being said or sung the whole world over, and all rising with one note of blissful acclamation, from grateful creatures, to the majesty of our merciful Creator. How many glorious processions, with the sun upon their banners, are now wending their way round the squares of mighty cities, through the flower-strewn streets of Christian villages, through the antique cloisters of the glorious cathedral, or though the grounds of the devout seminary, where the various colors of the faces, and the different languages of the people are only so many fresh tokens of the unity of that Faith, which they are all exultingly professing in the single voice of the magnificent ritual of Rome! Upon how many altars of various architecture, amid sweet flowers and starry lights, amid clouds of humble incense, and the tumult of thrilling song, before thousands of prostrate worshippers, is the Blessed Sacrament raised for exposition, or taken down for Benediction! And how many blessed acts of faith and love, of triumph and reparation, do not each of these things surely represent! The world over, the summer air is filled with the voice of song. The gardens are shorn of their fairest blossoms, to be flung beneath the feet of the Sacramental God. The steeples are reeling with the clang of bells; the cannon are booming in the gorges of the Andes and the Apennines; the ships of the harbors are painting the bays of the sea with their show of colorful flags; the pomp of royal or national armies salutes the King of kings. The Pope on his throne, and the school-girl in her village, cloistered nuns, and sequestered hermits, bishops and dignitaries and preachers, emperors and kings and princes, all are engrossed today with the Blessed Sacrament. Cities are illuminated; the dwellings of men are alive with exultation. Joy so abounds that men rejoice though they know not why, and their joy overflows on sad hearts, and on the poor, and the imprisoned, and the wandering, and the orphaned, and the homesick exiles. All the millions of souls that belong to the royal family and spiritual lineage of St. Peter are today engaged more or less with the Blessed Sacrament: so that the whole Church militant is thrilling with glad emotion, like the tremulous rocking of the mighty sea. Sin seems forgotten; tears even are of rapture rather than of penance. It is like the soul's first day in Heaven; or as if earth itself were passing into Heaven, as it well might do, for sheer joy of the Blessed Sacrament."

From the commentary on the feast of Corpus Christi in Dom Prosper Gueranger 's The Liturgical Year.

Disgraced serial plagiarist and toxic litigant (the persecutor of Vox and Fox Cantoris, the Chinese Catholics), Fr. Thomas Rosica, CSB, once the darling of the clericalist elite, a hobnobber with billionaires, multimillionaires, cardinals, bishops, politicians, celebrities, and even the Pope, has come crashing down

Thomas Rosica, an award for "Catholic Communications",
all the while engaged in serial plagiarism  

Rosica, soared in flight on the two wings of arrogance and pride, but finally crashed and burned in spectacular Icarian fashion. 

Exposed as a notorious, decades-long serial plagiarist, the toxicity of Rosica was even too much for the Board of Directors at Salt and Light, which had bent over backwards to excuse and protect the wayward priest since the scandal broke in February of this year. 

Rosica, picking up an Honorary Doctorate,
whilst leading a double-life as a plagiarist

However, four months of continual exposure of Rosica's plagiaristic proclivities whilst remaining as CEO of Salt and Light, finally had its toll, and Rosica was asked to resign (ousted?) from S and L. Even by their very low standards, the noxious toxicity of Rosica was too much. Their brand (such as it is), was being affected. Money talks, and Rosica had to go. 

The next question is: when will Regis College at the University of Toronto revoke the honorary doctorate they gave Rosica?

The Bergoglian Antipapacy - Part One

Back in November, Ann Barnhardt posted a compelling and factually correct video about what we can - and should - call this papacy: The Bergoglian Antipapacy.

It is below.

Part two - released just two days ago - will shortly follow.

It is a long video. I recommend listening to it while you do other business.

Try and defeat her argument. Can you?

Prayers for Pope Benedict, please

Update: Il Vaticano has determined this to be a hoax. That does not really matter - the True Pope needs all the prayers he can get, and I would imagine he didn't mind these.

Stop the culture of enabling Pope Bergoglio

Last week, this writer posted a piece on how we must resist the enemies of the Church, even Pope Bergoglio. It was something I wrote on the spur of the moment, and reflected my general thoughts on what we must do in this confusing time in the Church.

What we must do as Catholics is resist. What we must not do as Catholics is enable the abusers, the heretics, the Freemasons, the Communists, the sodomites, so on and so forth. All of whom are present in fine form in the upper echelons of the Church, from the Pope-in-law-only downwards.

Unfortunately, the majority of Catholics seem to have little interest in resistance, and are seemingly interested in enabling the malefactor we all know as Pope Bergoglio by sowing seeds of division and maintaining airs of snobbery.

Pope Bergoglio's primary goal - after more than six years, it is too obvious at this point - is to enmesh the Church into some globalist government, a New World Order. To make the Church fit the world, rather than the world fit the Church. It sounds farfetched, something from science fiction even, but it is happening right before our eyes. Just the other day, the Heretic-In-Chief announced that the Church would participate in plans to combat climate change. He did not raise a single objection to the USCCB's recent decision to revise the passage on the death penalty in the US Catholic Catechism for Adults. Not one. Today, even, he is allowing the Amazon Synod to discuss the possibility of married priests.

It is all too clear to me (at least) what this man and his cronies are up to.

But no. To most Catholics in the world, what is more important is the "fact" that the SSPX puts Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre before Christ Himself. Or the "fact" that LifeSiteNews is run by Opus Dei. Or whether Catholics are allowed to wear septum piercings.

Those sorts of things, to me, seem more important to most Catholics than the fact the Faith is being put at risk, souls are being lost because priests will not carry out their vocations, and the globalist agenda is slowly being advanced by multiple parties in addition to Pope Bergoglio.

There is a word for this.


That is how the Adversary gains the upper hand. Being pure spirit, and therefore more intelligent than you and I can ever be, he does not attack directly, but rather indirectly. He has gained many souls this way, and will continue to do so, as detailed on this blog.

Ann Barnhardt understands this well. Just yesterday, she filmed a video detailing how the goal of relieving the Church of the papacy has been a long-term goal for the Freemasons and the wayward Teutonic thinkers. How do they do this? Deflection and distraction.

You do not have to take Ms. Barnhardt at her word. You are free to disagree. But I would encourage you to at least take her overarching point seriously: that this confusion in the Church did not begin in March 2013. The efforts undermine the Faith were begun long before that, and defection is hardly a new strategy.

By continuing to focus on non-important issues - such as the ones I detailed above - we are merely furthering the culture of enabling Pope Bergoglio and - ultimately - the Adversary.

It is time to stop being part of that culture. It is time to stop zeroing in on the issues which matter so little in terms of salvation.

It is time to take our heads out of the sand, and resist - in earnest.

BREAKING: Archbishop defends Neo-Nazi Rallies, while condemning priest!

Statement from the Archbishop's Office
regarding a bulletin announcement
at St. John Chrysostom's Parish
Sunday, June 16, 2019

For immediate release

I understand that there was a message published in the Sunday bulletin of St. John Chrysostom's Parish regarding the various neo-Nazi "Nuremberg Memorial Events" that are being held across our Archdiocese. Amongst other things, the bulletin published the following regarding Nazism:

"A reminder that Catholics and all other Christians should not attend the neo-Nazi "Nuremberg Memorial Events" held this month. They promote a culture and encourage activities that are contrary to Christian Faith and morals. This is especially harmful to children as it could lead them away from God's revealed Truth. There will be even Nazi flags and banners flying courtesy of the government."

I did not sanction this message, and it does not reflect the spirit of accompanying charity and compassion that should always characterize our faith.

The Archdiocese has spoken with the pastor of the parish. He regrets any hurt that his inappropriate comments have caused towards neo-Nazis and their supporters.

This post has a very simple message.


Each and every day, we are bombarded with news about ersatz priests forgetting the will of God and instead doing their will. This includes the Pope, who seems to be enjoying his power as an absolute monarch a little too much, and implementing disastrous reforms with appalling callousness towards the Woman he is supposed to treat with utmost respect: the Church.


Resist the Pope's attempts to bastardize the Church. Resist his minions. Resist the bad priests who operate without the "blessing" of Pope Bergoglio.


Resist the temptation to retreat to small enclaves and watch while Rome burns. Resist the temptation to despair, to depression, to joylessness. Resist the temptation to leave the Bride of Christ.


Resist the temptation to forsake prayer. Resist the temptation to flee Mary, Our Mother. Resist the temptation not to persevere, persevere in prayer, persevere in the fight, for that is how the Adversary and his minions ultimately win.

Resist! Again, I say, resist!

We are all in this for the long haul. It will not end with the death of Pope Bergoglio. Some have been at it, resisting and restoring, for many years. Some have only been at it for a few years. Some will die before seeing the fruit of the resistance. Others will only see a glimpse before they too pass on. Yet others will enjoy the rich fruits of the resistance well within their lifetimes.

There will be - and already are - many avenues to restoration from resistance. The vast majority will form families and hopefully pass on the message of resistance and restoration to their children, all the while working to the restoration of the Church in Her Glory in their dioceses. Some will become diocesan priests and work towards restoration that way. Others will enter traditionally-minded priestly groups and work towards the restoration of the Church's Glory that way. Still others will enter the traditionally-minded cloister and work towards Her Glory that way, hopefully spreading their orders and charisms around the world. Finally, others will not venture onto any of these paths, and will be simple, faithful Catholics, as has been the case for over two thousand years.

The Holy Spirit is not constrained by the whims of men. Even though He has been denied by many who supposedly love Him, the Father and the Son (which unfortunately includes Pope Bergoglio), He has found a way. The Holy Spirit continues to work in the hearts of the faithful, despite the fact that so many have denied Him, laity and clerics alike.

We are not bereft. Far from it. But we must do our part. Indeed, we must resist! Rebuild! Restore!

Our Lord promises us through Scripture (ex. Amos 9:14) that He greatly rewards those who work for the positive sake of the Kingdom, and have shown His example to the world.

I daresay many such people will end up in Heaven, where their sorrows will be forgotten, their tears wiped away, and they will be greeted by their relatives and friends who have gone before them to Heaven.

Friends, let us resist the machinations of the Adversary (be they through Pope Bergoglio, his successor, the wayward clerics, or the laity), work towards the restoration of the Church in Her Glory, and hope to enter Heaven as we do so!

Another reminder of how Twitter is evil, from the example of Fr. Kevin M. Cusick

I do not like Twitter. It is a cesspool of filth.

I find it evil.

Yet, I have an account on it. Why? Because it is a cesspool of filth. People need to be instructed on what the Truth is, and we cannot ignore the times we live in. I have a comparatively small voice on it. I doubt people really listen to me on there, those who are "against" me. But still I tweet.

Twitter has an alarming tendency to form mobs quickly. It is the nature of the platform - you can quickly reply, "Retweet," and "Like" Tweets in less than a minute. Many people's profiles are public and those who do not "follow" you can chime in and add to the conversation

Such a mob formed against Fr. Kevin M. Cusick in the last few days. I found it extremely distasteful, not only in that he was a flagrant calmly stating what a priest has to say about modesty, but that certain professional Catholics like Katie Prejean-McGrady (might be related to Sister Helen Prejean) went after him for not "being welcoming enough."

It is in times like these I am embarrassed to be a Catholic. I wonder what people are thinking of those who turn on each other - especially when they are people who purportedly profess peace and love!

I would say more, but Fr. Cusick can speak for himself.

When the Twitter Mob Came After Me

June 6th, 2019
Twitter has a dark, demonic side, raging against God and the Church. That brood of vipers and braying, bloodthirsty hounds lurking in readiness was visited upon me with nearly unrelenting fury and incredible magnitude last week. Wave after wave of calumnious, blasphemous, and obscene memes, gifs, and messages were posted with comments, likes, and retweets ranging up to the tens of thousands. Those who styled themselves my enemies crowed with pleasure that I had been “ratioed” — when negative comments outnumber likes and retweets. Many called for me to delete my account when they weren’t wishing a more horrible fate upon me. Blue check mark accounts with nearly 200k followers piled on.
The vituperation descended even to the grave calumny of accusing me of pedophilia. The silliness included mocking my appearance and my Twitter handle. A self-described witch stated she put a “hex” or “curse” on me.
When my account disappeared on Wednesday, June 5, many wondered if Twitter had banned me, which was not the case. I was informed the previous evening that some of my account features would be limited for roughly twelve hours. That was not a factor in my decision, after prayer and discernment, to choose the high road as a Catholic Christian and a priest. Deactivating my account eliminated what had become the fulcrum for the demonic waves of rage targeting the faith. The good of the Church and the needs of the faithful must always come first, in particular for a priest. In the final analysis Twitter ain’t all that. It was entirely my own decision to deactivate and I was not compelled by anyone else in any way.
Twitter can be very superficial and that may be its strength. Headlines and pics can be reviewed rapidly for efficiently catching up on the news. Likes and retweets become a form of affirmation. Their lack can also do the contrary and affect our moods adversely. Twitter can also be problematic for the same reason: Rapid consumption of large volumes of data does not lend itself to reasoned discussion of sensitive subjects.
So, what was the tweet about? I touched upon a subject uncomfortable for many — modesty of dress for Mass, and my intention was to address only that: the decorum proper to praying together in the liturgy. However, regardless of my intentions otherwise, the tweet was taken to imply that I was placing the blame on women for men who cannot control themselves or telling them how to dress in general. I do not do either and never have. Nothing could be further from the truth.
The unfortunate turn of phrase, in which I implied that men’s chastity needed to be defended, was written with the best of intentions. In no way did I mean to say that men are not responsible for, or capable of, self-control. They are so capable and everything possible should be done to avoid implying otherwise. In the Church we have our own tragic history of failure to intervene and prevent crimes against the young and women. We must strive to ensure a consistent witness to the need to better protect individuals of all ages, especially children, from sexual predators. I always hope this goes without saying, but I am afraid we may not be there yet. Men and women both must exercise self-control and respect in their mutual relations.
Context is important. That was lacking in part due to the very limited number of words available for expression on that platform and my choice to not create a thread for expanding the discussion’s breadth. I was speaking only to the norms of dress within the Traditional Latin Mass community. I have absolutely no opinion on how women choose to dress. That’s their business. I’ve always felt that way. It would be very inappropriate for a priest to touch on that subject except in the one specific case I highlighted.
I can describe my parish situation best. The women at our Traditional Latin Mass have their own dress code which they have corporately decided upon for themselves without any direction from me. I prefer it that way. It largely involves having shoulders covered in exactly the same manner as expected for visitors to St. Peter’s Basilica and other religious monuments around the world. However, when new folks start attending the Mass, they might be working out of a different mindset based on previous experiences at Mass where different dress codes may have been in force. I think that may have been what was involved in the case I described. The person in question had been attending Traditional Mass for a few weeks while continuing to stand out in stark contrast to the pre-established norm for women in the congregation, a potential source of distraction for regulars at the Mass.
It is true that the priest was not “forced” to say something as described in the tweet. It might be better said that he felt impelled to address the matter because sufficient time had gone by for the individual involved to feel comfortable with the suggestion of accommodating the majority’s norms and she was not thus far making the adjustment unaided.
I posted on Monday, June 3 and by that evening the swarm was already gathering. Even, sadly, Catholics on Twitter used the situation to draw attention to themselves with mocking jokes about shoulders causing distraction during prayer. One priest posted a pic of a gingerbread cookie sporting a bikini and asked, “Does this bother you because she has shoulders or because seminarians made it?” These divisive jumps into the fray only attract the Church’s enemies.
Which brings me to another less salutary aspect of Twitter. We are not converting those who agree with us. But we can be holding the faith up to ridicule when Catholics themselves try to wring a joke out of the most sacred things. At the same time I have been most edified by the many faithful Catholics on Twitter who beautifully and lovingly express faith and invite others to also experience our covenant love in Christ.
Will the demons howl victory? Will they be left unsated as they prowl around to devour more victims? Probably so. But we who share the faith know that this is merely a minor battle in a great war in which our triumphant Lord has already secured the greatest victory, over sin and death. We always have much more effective means at our disposal for disseminating the faith, converting and saving souls, than an Internet platform controlled by declared enemies of Christ.
I pray for all of those who choose to remain on social media. It can be advantageous, but at the same time often also quite dangerous when we are forced to encounter those suffering from Internet derangement syndrome. Perhaps with the ensuing conversation about shoulders the goal posts were moved into a more protective position of the human person in the ongoing war against Internet porn so deadly for souls.
Will the Twitter storm rage on? Unfortunately the next target of the Twitter mob may be even now pressing the “send” button which will unwittingly bring them out in malicious force. In the final hours of the account good people were coming forward as reinforcements in numbers that swelled to nearly 27,000 followers. I have received many more emails of support than otherwise.
Sincere thanks to all of you. Please pray for me as I do for you.
