EWTN Officially Jumps the Shark: No Longer Catholic

Raymond Arroyo, EWTN's own beloved Pee Wee Herman, announced The World Over's Best and Worst Persons of 2018 on its last show of 2018.  And sadly, it was no shocker.

As I have discussed many, many times on this blog, Raymond Arroyo and his buddies have consistently and repeatedly criticized and denounced Pope Francis and everything he does and says.  They have done so through half truths and outright lies.

Arroyo and his buddies have also exalted and praised anyone who has stood in defiance against Pope Francis.

And of course, no one has taken a bigger stand against Pope Francis than Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, who broke every promise and vow of loyalty he made as priest and bishop when he called for the resignation of Pope Francis, an action which no human being on earth has the right or authority to do.

Bird Box: What It Means to Walk as a Christian In An Evil World

A new movie on Netflix has really made an impact on the public. It is entitled, "Bird Box" starring Sandra Bullock.  Netflix says over 45 million subscribers watched this movie, classified as a horror film, when it debuted.  That is the biggest debut of any movie they have ever had.

I was one of those 45 million.  It did not scare me as much as help me understand a little more what it means to walk as a Christian in this world ruled by Evil itself, a/k/a the devil.

WARNING:  spoilers.

Cardinal Gerhard Müller, “No one has the right to indict the Pope”

I find it fascinating at just how selective certain "Catholic" websites are in reporting and/or responding to stories regarding those they either support or hate.

As I wrote HERE, almost no Catholic blog or website reported on the article by Father James Martin in which he unequivocally stated the teachings of the Catholic Church in regard to homosexuality.  Father Martin made it very clear that the Church condemns homosexual activity and same sex marriage.  As far as I know, only John Zuhlsdorf responded to Father Martin's article, and he did so with his usual response:  propaganda, aspersions and lies.

Another news story completely ignored by the "faithful catholic" internet was the fact that a court found Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, hero of "faithful catholics", guilty of defrauding his brother, also a priest, of family inheritance.  Vigano was ordered to pay $2 million to his brother.  Vigano also defrauded his sister and settled out of court to pay her.  You can read this story HERE

You won't find the Vigano story on Church Militant, Lifesitenews, Father Z, or any other "faithful catholic" blog or website.

I wonder why.

Why Do So Many Converts Reject Pope Francis?

In the same way I don't visit porn sites, racist sites, etc., I now stay away from almost all "Catholic" web sites.  These sites do nothing to build my spirituality and bring me closer to God.  They literally poison my mind and destroy the presence of the Holy Spirit by driving out the Spirit of love, mercy and compassion and replacing it with a spirit of accusation, condemnation and hate. 

An amazing aspect of these sites is that they are basically clones of one another, writing about the same subjects from the same point of view with no original thought.  As I have stated previously, it is almost like they were all written by the same person.  There is certainly no doubt that they are all driven by the same spirit.

I don't think these "catholic" bloggers actually consult each other, and yet they all manage to come to the same conclusion:  the Catholic Church is dying and Pope Francis and his "henchman" bishops are actively participating in that destruction.

These bloggers and those who follow them believe they are the only true Catholics left on earth, and it is they who will save the Church and, by extension, the world.  We have not seen this much rebellion and rejection of authority in the Church since the Reformation.

Just how did these bloggers end up with their decidedly non-Catholic world view?  How have they become so confident in their own sanctity and their right to label all others, including the Vicar of Christ, as evil?  Why is it happening now?

Archbishop Vigano Third Testimony: Vigano No Longer Seeks Pope's Resignation and Admits No Formal McCarrick Sanctions

I am not surprised that in calling attention to these plagues I am charged with disloyalty to the Holy Father and with fomenting an open and scandalous rebellion.  Yet rebellion would entail urging others to topple the papacy.  I am urging no such thing.  I pray every day for Pope Francis -- more than I have ever done for the other popes.   Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano 10/19/18
Archbishop Vigano has responded to Cardinal Ouellet's October 7 open letter [HERE] with a third testimony [HERE].

Vigano is still standing by his basic accusations against Pope Francis in regard to McCarrick, namely:
  • McCarrick was part of a network of bishops promoting homosexuality who, exploiting their favor with Pope Francis, manipulated episcopal appointments so as to protect themselves from justice and to strengthen the homosexual network in the hierarchy and in the Church at large. 
  • Pope Francis himself has either colluded in this corruption, or, knowing what he does, is gravely negligent in failing to oppose it and uproot it. 
As with his first two testimonies, Vigano gives no corroborating documentary evidence to support these allegations.

However, there are two very notable departures made by Vigano from his first testimony.

First, Vigano makes a major concession by admitting that there were no formal sanctions against McCarrick as he claimed in his first testimony.

Secondly, and of greatest importance, Vigano has ceased to call for the resignation of Pope Francis.

Enemies of Pope Francis Continue to Lie and Attack Ruthlessly

I should be use to it by now, but I am still just completely blown away by the blatant lies and false, malicious accusations made against by Pope Francis by those intent on destroying the Holy Father.

Father John Zuhlsdorf is once again at the forefront of those trying desperately to instill suspicion and hatred among his readers towards Pope Francis.

I am going to say it right here, loud and clear, because there is no other explanation.

John Zuhlsdorf, with his constant lies and false accusations, is an agent of the father of lies, Satan himself.

Why Do So Many American Catholics Hate Pope Francis?

In the past several posts, I have been discussing the jihad declared against Pope Francis by some conservative/traditional mostly American Catholics whom I have labeled Those More Catholic Than the Pope ("TMCTP"). I give them this title because they believe that Pope Francis is barely Catholic, if at all.

TMCTP, as shown by their blogs and websites which I call Catholicspeak, believe Pope Francis is actually trying to destroy the Catholic Church, changing it into a liberal wasteland where anything goes.

TMCTP was afraid of Pope Francis from the moment he stepped onto the papal balcony because he did not look like a traditional pope.

Here is Pope Benedict when he was elected alongside Pope Francis at his election. As you can see, Francis is definitely not into all of the pomp and circumstance that often comes with the papacy. This completely horrified TMCTP.

American Catholic Church Being Hijacked by Mob Rule

As I have written before, the vast majority of American Catholic blogs and websites appear to be written by the same person because there is so little difference in their views and opinions.  If you have read one, you've read them all.   This also includes a fair amount of British Catholic blogs and websites as well.  They seem to feel a real kinship with their American counterparts.

I will hereafter refer to these blogs and websites as "Catholicspeak."

Catholicspeak operates under mob rule.  Mob rule is defined as "the fact or state of large groups of people acting without the consent of the government, authorities, etc."

The only authority Catholicspeak recognizes is its own.  It has rejected the Magesterium of the Catholic church as evil.

Catholicspeak listens only to itself and those who agree with it.  It rejects any facts that do not fit in with its beliefs.

Most Disgusting Post Ever By John Zuhlsdorf

Pope Francis accepted Cardinal Donald Wuerl's resignation today.  Those More Catholic Than the Pope ("TMCTP"), a/k/a those who hate Pope Francis, consider this a mighty victory.  They feel they are personally responsible for bringing the "downfall" of Cardinal Wuerl, and are hopeful that this will eventually lead to the grand prize - the downfall of Pope Francis himself.

One of the leaders in the war against Pope Francis is Father John Zuhlsdorf, and he took this "golden moment" to gloat and sneer at Pope Francis.

Remember, Zuhlsdorf is the same guy who said it is perfectly fine to pray for the death of Pope Francis.

Did Cardinal Ouellet Confirm Sanctions Against McCarrick?

The reaction on the Internet to Cardinal Ouellet's letter denouncing Archbishop Vigano has been a true study in human psychology.

The members of group I call Those More Catholic Than the Pope ("TMCTP") are celebrating because they see Ouellet's letter, despite its condemnatory tone, as vindication of Vigano's claim that Pope Francis lifted canonical sanctions placed upon Theodore McCarrick by Pope Benedict XVI.

It needs to be noted the core creed of TMCTP is that Pope Francis is a heretic bent on destroying the Church.  TMCTP's believe their responsibility as faithful Catholics is to take out Pope Francis in any way they can.

Cardinal Ouellet to Archbishop Vigano: "Such a thing cannot come from God’s Spirit"

Cardinal Marc Ouellet, prefect of the Congregation for Bishops, has come out with a scathing response to Archbishop Vigano's attack against Pope Francis.   He published an open letter to Vigano on October 7 [HERE].

Ouellet makes many profound and serious statements and charges in his letter, but there is one statement in particular which should shake Vigano to his core, as well as anyone else who supports the Archbishop in his attack against Pope Francis:
Reading how you concluded your last message, apparently very spiritual, mocking and casting doubt on his faith, seemed to me to be really too sarcastic, even blasphemous! Such a thing cannot come from God’s Spirit.
This is the statement referred to by Ouellet in Vigano's last letter:
Has Christ perhaps become invisible to his vicar? Perhaps is he being tempted to try to act as a substitute of our only Master and Lord? 
Vigano's attack is not against Pope Francis.  It is light years more serious than that.

The Office of the Papacy is guarded and protected by none other than the Third Person of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit.  Although the man occupying the Chair of Peter may be a great sinner, he can never, in his official capacity as Vicar of Christ and spiritual leader of the Church, act against the Holy Spirit and mislead the Church.  This is the definition of papal infallibility, a doctrine of the Catholic Church.

As Cardinal Ouellet writes in his letter:
Is not communion with the Successor of Peter an expression of our obedience to Christ who chose him and sustains him with his grace?
It is no exaggeration to say that to attack the Pope is, in reality, an attack against the Holy Spirit, the true leader of the Church.

Cardinal Ouellet is saying that Vigano's actions are of demonic origin and a direct and blasphemous assault upon the Holy Spirit.  This is a sin of unimaginable proportions, directly inspired by Satan himself.

Taylor Marshall, Father Z and Other Catholic Bloggers Blatantly Lie About Pope Francis

The jihad being waged against Pope Francis by Those More Catholic Than the Pope ("TMCTP") is escalating to new highs, or lows, as the case may be.   In their effort to portray the Holy Father as evil and corrupt, TMCTP is now slinging anything they can against him, with no regard to the veracity of the charges whatsoever.  All they care about is if their mudslinging will stick.

TMCTP is resurrecting old scandals that were resolved before Francis ever became Pope and trying to pin them on him.  They are parsing every word he says in an attempt to prove he is teaching heresy.  They put a spotlight on all those around him and manipulate the facts to prove that Francis surrounds himself with evil.  And even when it is pointed out that none of this is true, they still refuse to accept it and instead, continue to cling to their lies.

This past week has seen constant, unrelenting attacks against Pope Francis. trying to pin scandal after scandal on the Holy Father, and even creating scandals where there are none.

But it doesn't take much to expose the truth.  Even just a cursory investigation uncovers the lies behind all of these vicious attacks.

Red Hat Report: Wealthy American Catholics Attempt to Control The Papacy

The scariest people in the world are those who believe they know what is best for everyone else.  These are the people Our Lord warned about when he said, "They will put you out of the synagogue; in fact, the time is coming when anyone who kills you will think they are offering a service to God."  (John 16:2).

With the Internet, we now have daily cyber lynchings of Catholic priests, bishops, cardinals and even Pope Francis.  And the most amazing part of this is that it is Catholics who are the most vicious in their attacks against the Church.  Those doing the cyber lynchings literally believe they are more Catholic than the Pope and the majority of Church hierarchy.  They have convinced themselves, without the tiniest bit of self doubt, that they know what is best for the Church and that it is their God-given duty to destroy anyone and everyone who does not agree with them. 

And now we have a group of extremely wealthy and, might I add, arrogant group of American Catholics who seem to believe they have been given a directive from God Himself to choose our next Holy Father.  They call themselves "The Better Church Governance Group."

These people make the Pharisees plotting against Jesus look like bumbling amateurs.

St Therese of Lisieux, My Candidate for Patron Saint of Bloggers

The only way to advance rapidly in the path of love is to remain always very little. That is what I did, and now I can sing with our holy Father, St. John of the Cross: 'Then I abased myself so low, so very low, That I ascended to such heights, such heights indeed, That I did overtake the prey I chased!'
St. Therese of Lisieux
Today, the Feast Day of The Little Flower, I am re-publishing a post that I originally did four years ago in October 2014.  I think it is even more appropriate now than it was then.  Catholic blogging has become just like all other blogging.  It is people throwing their opinions around and tearing down anyone and everyone with whom they disagree or just don't like.

But it is much more serious with Catholic bloggers.  Now they even dare to tear down the Papacy with no thought as to the consequences.  There is no humility, no love shown on Catholic blogs, and I think it is a disgrace.  These bloggers are too proud to even realize that they are nothing more than pawns in the hands of the devil, his tools to destroy the Church.

In re-reading this post, I believe it also shows how wise Pope Francis is in not answering his critics.  Engaging in debates with our enemies is always a losing battle.

Father Paul Kalchik and the Spirit of Disobedience and Rebellion

The current crisis du jour in the Catholic blogosphere is the saga of Fr. Paul Kalchik of Chicago. Father Kalchik was pastor at Resurrection Catholic Church in the Chicago archdiocese.  On September 21, Fr. Kalchik was removed by his bishop, Cardinal Cupich, as pastor of the church for disobeying a direct order.

The Catholic blogosphere led by Michael Voris (who else?) is, not surprisingly, rushing to the defense of Fr. Kalchik and demonizing Cardinal Cupich.

So who is right?
