Pachamama: Is It A Gotcha Mama for Enemies of Pope Francis?


Pope Francis cannot sneeze without being condemned by Those More Catholic Than The Pope.  They have hated him from the time he stepped onto the balcony after being elected pope in 2013, and have been plotting and strategizing to push him out of the papacy from the point on.

Think I am exaggerating?  Here is the post from Rorate Caeli, one of the most right-wing, anti-Francis catholic websites on the Internet, from March 13, 2013, the day of Pope Francis' election:
Of all the unthinkable candidates, Jorge Mario Bergoglio is perhaps the worst. Not because he openly professes doctrines against the faith and morals, but because, judging from his work as Archbishop of Buenos Aires, faith and morals seem to have been irrelevant to him.
, , ,
May God help His Church. One can never dismiss, as humanly hard as it may seem, the possibility of a conversion... and, nonetheless, the future terrifies us. 
That could have been written today, 6 and 1/2 years later.  These people are consistent, if nothing else.

There have been a lot of hopeful "gotcha" moments that have come and gone:  the synods on marriage, Laudato Si, Amoris Laetitia, Who Am I To Judge?, praising a dead Anglican priest, washing the feet of women on Holy Thursday, the people he talks to, the papal staff he carries at Mass, etc. etc. etc.  There have been open letters written by Catholic theologians to Pope Francis accusing the Holy Father of heresy.  We can't forget the Dubia by four cardinals (two of whom are now dead) and, of course, Archbishop Vigano's accusations and call for the Pope's resignation.  The list goes on and on and on.

Almost every day the enemies of Francis find some new mud to sling at the Holy Father, but so far, nothing has worked for Those More Catholic Than the Pope. Francis continues to sit in the Chair of Peter.

But now they are convinced they got him.  They have found the silver bullet:  PACHAMAMA!! It is indisputable.  Francis the heretic is actively and publicly promoting the worship of pagan idols.

Plenary Indulgence - What's a Radical Right Wing Catholic to Do?



Many right wing conservative catholics have rejected Pope Francis as either a heretic, an anti-pope or both.  They condemn his every word and action.  There is nothing he can do or say that they will support.

These same right wing catholics are pretty excited today because they can gain a plenary indulgence for All Souls Day.  From one of the premier anti-Francis sites, onepeterfive.com:
Grant #29.1.1For the Souls in Purgatory 
Plenary Indulgence
A plenary indulgence, applicable only to the souls in purgatory, is granted each and every day from Nov 1 to Nov 8, who devoutly visit a cemetery and there pray, if only mentally, for the departed.
This article then gives us the requirements for a plenary indulgence:
Requirements for obtaining a plenary indulgence:
  • Do the work while in a state of grace,
  • Receive Sacramental confession within 20 days of the work (several plenary indulgences may be earned per reception),
  • Receive Eucharistic communion (one plenary indulgence may be earned per reception),
  • Pray for the pope’s intentions (Our Father and Hail Mary, or other appropriate prayer, is sufficient),
  • Have no attachment to sin (even venial) – i.e., it is sufficient that the Christian makes an act of the will to love God and despise sin.
Oh, dear, we have a real problem here.  One of the requirements for a plenary indulgence is to pray for the Pope's intentions.  But that means praying for the intentions of the evil heretic, Pope Francis!  What's a "faithful catholic" to do?


Well, it really doesn't matter because another requirement for a plenary indulgence is to be a state of grace, and the "faithful catholics' " rejection of and refusal to submit to the authority of Pope Francis has removed all grace from their souls. Refusal to submit to the authority of the pope is the definition of schism, which is an automatic excommunication.

Of course, they could always repent.

The Face of Schism - Michael Matt to Pope Francis: Get the Hell Out Of Our Church


Above is a clip from a video put out by Michael Matt from Remnant Newspaper in which he denounces the Amazon Synod and as you can see from this clip, he completely renounces and rejects Pope Francis, actually demanding that Pope Francis "get the hell out of our church." 

The above video is an active act of schism according to Canon Law 751:
Can. 751 Heresy is the obstinate denial or obstinate doubt after the reception of baptism of some truth which is to be believed by divine and Catholic faith; apostasy is the total repudiation of the Christian faith; schism is the refusal of submission to the Supreme Pontiff or of communion with the members of the Church subject to him.
Neither Michael Matt nor any other person on earth has the authority to push the Pope out of the Catholic Church.  The Church is founded on the Pope.  Jesus Christ said specifically to Peter, and to Peter alone:
And I tell you that you are Peter and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it. I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.  Mat. 16:18-19
Pushing the pope out of the Church is like destroying the foundation of a building in order to make it stronger.  The only result you will get is the complete destruction of the building.

Peter is the earthly foundation of the Catholic Church.  If a Catholic separates himself from Peter, he is no longer a part of the Catholic Church.  If you do not recognize Peter as the earthly head of the Church, then you are not Catholic.  If you're not with Peter, you're not with the Church.  Where Peter is, there is the Church.

To quote St. Cyprian:
How can anyone think he keeps the faith, if he breaks the unity of the Church? The blessed Apostle Paul teaches the same sacrament of unity: “There is one body and one spirit, one hope, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God? ” [Eph. 4:4] Do they who fight and resist the Church believe that they are in the Church?
And from St. Jerome:
I follow no leader but Christ and join in communion with none but your blessedness [Pope Damasus I], that is, with the chair of Peter. I know that this is the rock on which the Church has been built. Whoever eats the Lamb outside this house is profane. Anyone who is not in the ark of Noah will perish when the flood prevails
Many rad trads try to get around this problem of rejecting the Pope by claiming Pope Francis is not legitimate.  Michael Matt can't use this pathetic excuse for his actions.  He doesn't make even a pretense that he doesn't recognize Pope Francis as the legitimate Vicar of Christ.  Matt actually calls Pope Francis by the title, "Holy Father" as he denounces him.

From the video:
We say to you, Holy Father . . . for God's sake, pack up your pagan goodies, and you and your globalist pals, get the literal hell out of our church. Because we've had enough.
By standing in open defiance and opposition to the Vicar of Christ, Michael Matt, and anyone who stands with him, is in a state of schism and automatic excommunication according to both Canon Law and Matthew 16:18-19. If Michael Matt and his "pals" do not repent, they will be damned to the fires of hell for all eternity.

It is that serious.

War Council Against Pope Francis Held In Rome

Audience in Rome To discuss how to do battle with Pope Francis
Definition of War Council:  A council of war is a term in military science that describes a meeting held to decide on a course of action, usually in the midst of a battle.

Michael Matt, far right-wing radical traditionalist from Remnant Newspaper, excitedly and breathlessly released a video on Youtube on October 14 of a talk given that night by Bishop Athanasius Schneider in Rome to commemorate his new book.  Schneider's new book is actually just a very long interview he did with a radical right-wing Lifesitenews reporter.

It should be noted that there is no imprimatur on Bishop Schneider's book.  Read at your own risk.

Matt says in the video that it is the first time Schneider's book has been made available. Not exactly true.  The book was released on Amazon on September 26, about 3 weeks ago.

However, the meeting was not really about Bishop Schneider's book.  It was a planning session on how to defeat Pope Francis.  We can be sure there have been many such meetings held in private.  But this one was right out in the open, and very little was held back.

Matt entitled the video, "HUGE SIGN OF HOPE: Schneider, Burke Speak in Rome."

St. John Henry Newman? Not with Anti Pope Francis


There are a whole lot of catholics who are denying the papacy of Pope Francis, declaring him an anti pope  These same people are also very happy with the canonization of John Henry Newman.

Unfortunately, they have a real problem.  If Francis is an anti pope, there is no St. John Henry Newman.  An anti pope can't canonize anyone. 

Sigh.  Such a quandry, isn't it?

Mary Ann Kreitzer, Who are You Serving, Part 2

Source
I recently wrote about Mary Ann Kreitzer in regard to a post on her blog authored by another contributor in which Pope Francis was completely renounced and declared an anti pope.  At the time I wrote, Mary Ann had not made any comments one way or another, but since it was on her blog, I could only assume she agreed with it.

Mary Ann finally commented last night.  She explained that she had been away celebrating her 50th wedding anniversary - Congratulations, Mary Ann - and had basically not been paying attention to the blog.  She commented in answer to a question directed at her:
Do I agree with Susan? Frankly, I don't know. We aren't clones.
I love and respect Susan and I know one thing for sure -- that we have an evil pope who is undermining the faith every chance he gets. It's not the first time in Church history and a man can be evil and still be a valid pope.
I do definitely agree with Mary Ann that a man can be evil and still be a valid pope.  We have some very sad examples throughout Church history.

Cardinal Sarah: To Oppose the Pope is to be Outside the Church


It is really amazing how emboldened the enemies of Pope Francis have become.  Just the other day, Zuhlsdorf gave advice on his blog on how to protest at the Vatican.

Also this past week there was also a "roundtable" including some of the "super stars" among the enemies of Francis, such as Michael Matt, Michael Voris, Taylor Marshall, and John-Henry Westin.  The topic of that roundtable was, of course, the heresy in the Church led by Pope Francis.  The "roundtable" was described by Lifesitenews as such:
Lay Catholic leaders from around the world, increasingly alarmed about the upcoming Amazonian Synod and how it threatens to disfigure and “Protestantize” the Church, gathered not far from the Vatican today to discuss their grave concerns.

The roundtable discussion, titled “Our Church – reformed or deformed?” was hosted by the international pro-life association Voice of the Family. Over 5,000 people across the continents tuned in.

On the eve of the synod, they described the multifaceted diabolical menace to the Catholic Church it portends to be. Their choice of strong language reflects the peril they sense: That after the synod, what will emerge will no longer be the Catholic Church.
 
. . .
“There are, at this moment, two religions within the Catholic Church,” declared Professor Roberto de Mattei.

“The first is the traditional Catholicism, the religion of those who, in the current confusion, continue to be faithful to the immutable Magisterium of the Church,” said de Mattei.
“The second, until a few months ago without a name, now has a name: it is the Amazonian religion because, as declared by the person currently governing the Church, there is a plan to give the Church ‘an Amazonian face,’” explained de Mattei.
“Two religions cannot coexist within the same Church,” he reaffirmed.

. . .

“Pope Francis and his clerical allies are creating a globalist organization with a Catholic-appearing face,” said Church Militant’s Michael Voris.
“What is emerging is not Catholic. The façade should be dropped and for once truth be allowed to prevail.”
Voris explained that Pope Francis has moved the Church to “align with a counterfeit kind of theology inspired by godless atheism, and in the rush to advance this, he’s surrounded himself with numerous clerical scoundrels — some who have been complicit in the performing of or cover-up of sex abuse of minors or young adults, mostly male.”
None of these people even try to hide the fact that they are enemies of Pope Francis.  They consider the Holy Father to be the greatest threat to the Catholic Church on earth, and they are spreading that message as far and wide as they can.

War has been openly declared upon Pope Francis.

At that same time that they are openly at war with the Vicar of Christ, these people consider themselves to be the only true Catholics left in existence. As de Mattei said, there are two religions within the Catholic Church:  one led by Pope Francis, and one led by the enemies of Pope Francis.

And as de Mattei so rightly declared, "two religions cannot coexist within the same Church."

Which one will prevail?

Mary Ann Kreitzer, Who Are You Serving?


I have written many times about the importance of being loyal to the Chair of Peter.  The Church was founded upon St. Peter, and Our Lord personally gave the Keys to the Kingdom to Peter and his successors.  We cannot be in communion with Christ unless we are in communion with the earthly head of His Church.  

The Chair of Peter is of utmost importance because Our Lord considers loyalty to Peter as loyalty to Himself and God the Father, as he told Peter and the disciples in Luke 10:16:


There is no Church without Peter.  Without Peter, there are no bishops because bishops are appointed by Peter.  Without bishops, there are no priests because priests are ordained by the bishops.  Without priests, there is no Mass, no Holy Eucharist, no forgiveness of sins, no Sacraments whatsoever.  

All of this leads to the worst "no" of all - No Salvation.  We all die in our sins with no hope of salvation.

Catholic Traditionalism: The Most Dangerous Movement In Our Time


My last post was way back in February.  I had gotten tired of all the viciousness and hate in the "catholic" blogosphere, and I didn't want to be a part of it anymore.  I felt it was a waste of time to fight those who are trying so hard to "save" the Catholic Church by trying to destroy it.  They listen only to each other and ferociously attack anyone who disagrees with them.

Jesus Christ told us to walk away from such people, shaking the dust off of our feet as we do so.  And that is just what I did.

During these past several months, I have been tempted to write on various topics, but I would always let it go.  However, I recently saw a post on onepeterfive.com which has all the hallmarks of being inspired by Satan himself, and I can no longer be silent.

Lesson From The Internet: No One Wants The Truth


I have been writing this blog for a little over 7 years.   When I first started in December 2011, I was a staunch Catholic traditionalist, and I fully embraced everything that goes with radical traditionalism.

I believed that the Traditional Latin Mass was the salvation not just of the Church but of the whole world.  My heroes were Michael Voris, John Zuhlsdorf, George Rutler, Michael Matt, ad nauseam.  I basically rejected the Second Vatican Council.  I was suspicious of everything and everyone in the Catholic Church who supported the Second Vatican Council in any way.  I wore a veil to Mass and eschewed such things as the Sign of Peace.

I was completely obnoxious and intolerant towards anyone who did not support my views.

Evil Beyond Belief: New York States Passes Bill Allowing Abortion Up To Due Date


This morning at Mass our priest told us that New York State just passed a new abortion law with the Orwellian title of Reproductive Health Act.

This bill has nothing to do with "reproduction" or "health."  It is all about expanding the law to legally kill babies.

This bill should be rightly called the Kill The Babies Act.

The new abortion law in New York allows women to kill their babies right up to the time of delivery.  Gov. Cuomo said he wanted this because he fears that Roe v. Wade will be overturned, thus leaving it up to each state to decide on legalized abortion.  He wants to be sure New York will be ready with the most liberal abortion laws possible.

Why Did Cardinal Donald Wuerl Lie?


Last summer, when Theodore McCarrick's dirty secret life was publicly revealed, Cardinal Donald Wuerl said that he had never been told that McCarrick was abusing seminarians or minors. 

From a July 29, 2018 article from WTOP:
Wuerl said he has never been approached with allegations of abuse by McCarrick and was unaware of the rumors that have been associated with his predecessor.
We know now that is not true.

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.
