“A disgraceful display of excuses and evasions”

You know the old saying, “When you’ve lost WaPo…”

Pope Francis’s (sic) closing address to the Vatican Summit on Child Protection was a disgraceful display of excuses and evasions. He began with extended meditation on how a “great number of” abuse cases are “committed within families.” He urged the assembled bishops to focus on “other forms of abuse” experienced by “child soldiers,” “starving children,” “child victims of war” and “refugee children.” He laid out an agenda that, bizarrely, focused on matters have nothing to do with clerical abuse (such as combating “sexual tourism”). And, most shamefully of all, he lashed out at those demanding that bishops who covered up abuse and silenced victims be held to account, declaring that the church must “rise above” those who “exploit, for various interests, the very tragedy experienced by the little ones.”

Sorry, Holy Father, that’s not good enough.

Another worthy dissection of the whole sham comes from Chris Ferrara:

On and on Francis goes regarding the sexual abuse of minors around the world as shown by “statistics… drawn up by various national and international organizations and agencies (the WHO, UNICEF, INTERPOL, EUROPOL and others)” which “do not represent the real extent of the phenomenon, which is often underestimated, mainly because many cases of the sexual abuse of minors go unreported, particularly the great number committed within families.”

It took considerable gall for Francis to state further that “those who perpetrate abuse, that is acts of physical, sexual or emotional violence, are primarily parents, relatives, husbands of child brides, coaches and teachers.  Furthermore, according to the UNICEF data of 2017 regarding 28 countries throughout the world, 9 out of every 10 girls who have had forced sexual relations reveal that they were victims of someone they knew or who was close to their family.”
Francis deplores “acts of violence … in the home, but also in neighbourhoods, schools, athletic facilities and, sadly, also in church settings.”  Also in Church settings! The homosexual abuse of minors by Catholic clerics is here presented as a mere “oh, by the way.”

The mainstream coverage in the U.S. has been absolutely brutal. CNN actually stopped talking about Russia for two minutes so they could cover this story. I wish I could find video from FoxNews Monday night, not sure if it was Tucker or Martha but there was a short panel segment that was just devastating in its condemnation of the Bergoglian cohort. It was clear the group understood that we are not dealing with mere incompetence, but rather intentional deflection, inaction, and continued cover-up, including from Bergoglio himself.
It may be some kind of turning point.

ComplicitClergy video on Natacha Jaitt, Gustavo Vera and Jorge Bergoglio… FOLLOW THE MONEY

Sorry, but today I only have time to pull a Fr. Rosica by copying and pasting the work of others.
First up is the video, worth 19 minutes of your time if you want to understand how a sex trafficking kingpin can appear to be a virtuous whistleblower. Unfortunately, Jaitt’s interview style is super annoying, with her constantly interrupting and finishing the subject’s sentences. Just stick with it and learn what you need to know.
After the video, a follow up from Ann Barnhardt.

Follow the Money: Natacha Jaitt Spoke At Length About Gustavo Vera Being Funded By Bergoglio. Remember McCarrick & Wuerl’s Papal Foundation, and the $25 Million Bergoglio Demanded for the Dermatology Hospital in Rome?

Why was Gustavo Vera physically commuting between Rome and Buenos Aires for years?  Sodomy in the Casa Santa Marta wasn’t the sole reason.  Another reason to physically commute was almost certainly to shuttle large amounts of cash back to Argentina.  Natacha Jaitt said repeatedly that Vera was being funded by Bergoglio, both before and after Bergoglio usurped the Petrine See.  I would encourage one and all to remember well the huge kerfuffle over the sodomite and Communist infiltrator McCarrick’s “Papal Foundation”, which he ran/runs (yes, present tense RUNS) with Donna Wuerl, with Wuerl STILL running the Archdiocese of Washington D.C. even after having his “resignation” accepted many months ago.  The kerfuffle came about when Bergoglio DEMANDED without any explanation that the Papal Foundation give $25 million directly to the super-corrupt dermatology and plastic surgery hospital in Rome, Istituto Dermopatico dell’Immacolata (IDI).  The donors and laypeople on the board of the Papal Foundation raised a stink at this massive amount of money, to be given to a well-known money laundering and embezzlement front, which IDI is.
Trafficking child sex slaves isn’t cheap, folks.  It takes not just large amounts of money, but large amounts of CASH.  The Vatican has been a hub of money laundering for decades, with the criminal racketeering organization The Legionaries of Christ being some of the most notorious, but also McCarrick and the rest of the Communist-sodomite mafia have been ALL ABOUT passing around fat envelopes of cash.  But, as we covered here in this space, the Legionaries of Christ and McCarrick are cut from exactly the same cloth.  Same criminal dynamics, just with different window dressing: racketeering sex perverts leveraging and blackmailing their way through life, and up the food chain. Criminal psychopathy is a feature, not a bug with these monsters.
The other thing to be on the lookout for these days are money laundering packages made to look like legit “grants” or “fellowships”.  Notre Dame – which should be closed, scraped and the earth salted where it stood – is huge on this, as we saw this fall when the ex-Legion kingpin and now Breitbart copy-paste “Rome bureau chief” Thomas Williams and his concubine-baby-mama-now-wife Liz Lev were handed six month no-work “fellowships” by Notre Dame which are publicly listed as paying something like $100,000 per year.  The fact that this payola to a notorious priest fornicator who also cruised for sex with his students while dean of the department of Moral Theology at Regina Apostolorum in Rome (Remember, Boyz and Gurlz, if they are over the age of consent, they’re fair game! No civil laws broken!  Happy hunting!) was categorized under the so-called Notre Dame “Center for Ethics and Culture” as a clear jab at human decency.  Folks, this is the epitome of “Professional Catholic, Inc.” racketeering, very much reminiscent of what goes on in political campaigns on both sides of the political spectrum where friends, family and ideological allies are constantly trading no-work or little-to-no-work contracts and grants for exorbitant amounts of money. So it isn’t just paper cash, but paper cash is still king in certain realms – like human trafficking and prostitution, as with Gustavo Vera.  But make no mistake, vast sums are being moved, laundered and grifted on the so-called left AND the so-called right.


Every Dem Sen 2020 presidential candidate voted to kill living babies

Where will the line be drawn? Toddlers? Pre-K? Ability to earn a living wage?
These people think this is normal. Merciful. A “fundamental human right.”
Remember a couple weeks ago when we thought the murderous governor of Virginia was an outlier?

Natacha Jaitt, Argentinian whistleblower: “NOTICE: I’m not going to commit suicide. So if that happens, I didn’t.”

Still wondering why +Vigano is in hiding?

Priests, bishops and cardinals engaged in sodomy and facilitating cover up “must remain a hypothesis unless proven”

So much for the Natural Law, Divine Law, CCC, etc. Homosexuality is now no different than heterosexuality. Got it? And anyway, homosexuality certainly has nothing to do with the abuse crisis, so SHUT UP.
I recommend this highly instructive five minute video below. Diane Montagna from LifeSite asks a very simple question regarding the stark statistics of the homosexual nature of the abuse problem. ++Cupich changes the subject, and then brags that abuse has been nearly eliminated; take a look at whatever is going on with his hands at 2:00. Then Delia Gallagher from CNN gets the follow up on sodomitical prelates as the cause of the cover up network at 3:25, which first ++Cupich says must remain a hypothesis, and then +Scicluna says he’s never investigated a cover up.
I hope this video is shown at someone’s criminal trial in the near future.
They are laughing at us. They are laughing at the victims. This is just a stupid press conference in between parties at Cocco’s.
In other news, the two remaining Dubia cardinals have now declared that, “a decisive act now is urgent and necessary,” regarding the Roman Apostasy. HERE
Any takers in the cardinalate or episcopacy?

Suffer both to grow until the harvest: The Church and the anti-church may not be subsisting in the same space much longer

My favorite quote from Cardinal Muller’s manifesto (which is really amounts to nothing more than restating perennial Catholic doctrine and quoting from the CCC):

“Faith and life are inseparable, for Faith apart from works is dead (CCC 1815). The moral law is the work of divine wisdom and leads man to the promised blessedness (CCC 1950). Consequently, the “knowledge of the divine and natural law is necessary” to do good and reach this goal (CCC 1955). Accepting this truth is essential for all people of good will. For he who dies in mortal sin without repentance will be forever separated from God (CCC 1033). This leads to practical consequences in the lives of Christians, which are often ignored today (cf 2270-2283; 2350-2381). The moral law is not a burden, but part of that liberating truth (cf Jn 8:32) through which the Christian walks on the path of salvation and which may not be relativized… Every human being has an immortal soul, which in death is separated from the body, hoping for the resurrection of the dead (CCC 366). Death makes man’s decision for or against God definite. Everyone has to face the particular judgement immediately after death (CCC 1021). Either a purification is necessary, or man goes directly into heavenly bliss and is allowed to see God face to face. There is also the dreadful possibility that a person will remain opposed to God to the very end, and by definitely refusing His Love, “condemns himself immediately and forever” (CCC 1022). “God created us without us, but He did not want to save us without us” (CCC 1847). The eternity of the punishment of hell is a terrible reality, which – according to the testimony of Holy Scripture – attracts all who “die in the state of mortal sin” (CCC 1035). The Christian goes through the narrow gate, for “the gate is wide, and the way that leads to ruin is wide, and many are upon it” (Mt 7:13).
To keep silent about these and the other truths of the Faith and to teach people accordingly is the greatest deception against which the Catechism vigorously warns. It represents the last trial of the Church and leads man to a religious delusion, “the price of their apostasy” (CCC 675); it is the fraud of Antichrist. “He will deceive those who are lost by all means of injustice; for they have closed themselves to the love of the truth by which they should be saved” (2 Thess 2:10).”

That last part is quite shocking; he’s actually calling out our present times as those foretold in CCC 675 and in Scripture of the final deception wherein “even the elect” would be lost had those times not been shortened. I don’t see any other way to read it.
The document from Cardinal Muller was released in seven languages on Friday, two days earlier than planned, because some publication in Europe blew the embargo. It had been scheduled to be released tonight, on the eve of the Feast of our Lady of Lourdes, 11 Feb, which also happens to be the sixth anniversary of Pope Benedict’s Declaratio, in which he failed to abdicate the Throne of Saint Peter, because he renounced its Ministry but not the Office, with the apparent intention of transforming the papacy from a monarchy into a “synodality”. Of course it was at Lourdes that Our Lady confirmed herself to be the Immaculate Conception, and we do well to recall that Abp. Ganswein drew a direct parallel between Benedict’s Declaratio of 11 Feb 2013 and God’s decision to create Mary Immaculate. Yeah, that’s a pretty big deal, as in hubris maximus, and I wrote a long blog post explaining it last December on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception HERE.

Apb. Ganswein: “…I, too, a firsthand witness of the spectacular and unexpected step of Benedict XVI, I must admit that what always comes to mind is the well-known and brilliant axiom with which, in the Middle Ages, John Duns Scotus justified the divine decree for the Immaculate Conception of the Mother of God:
“Decuit, potuit, fecit.”
That is to say: it was fitting, because it was reasonable. God could do it, therefore he did it. I apply the axiom to the decision to resign in the following way: it was fitting, because Benedict XVI was aware that he lacked the necessary strength for the extremely onerous office. He could do it, because he had already thoroughly thought through, from a theological point of view, the possibility of popes emeritus for the future. So he did it.
The momentous resignation of the theologian pope represented a step forward primarily by the fact that, on February 11, 2013, speaking in Latin in front of the surprised cardinals, he introduced into the Catholic Church the new institution of “pope emeritus,” stating that his strength was no longer sufficient “to properly exercise the Petrine ministry.” The key word in that statement is munus petrinum, translated — as happens most of the time — with “Petrine ministry.” And yet, munus, in Latin, has a multiplicity of meanings: it can mean service, duty, guide or gift, even prodigy. Before and after his resignation, Benedict understood and understands his task as participation in such a “Petrine ministry.” He has left the papal throne and yet, with the step made on February 11, 2013, he has not at all abandoned this ministry. Instead, he has complemented the personal office with a collegial and synodal dimension, as a quasi shared ministry (als einen quasi gemeinsamen Dienst); as though, by this, he wanted to reiterate once again the invitation contained in the motto that the then Joseph Ratzinger took as archbishop of Munich and Freising and which he then naturally maintained as bishop of Rome: “cooperatores veritatis,” which means “fellow workers in the truth.” In fact, it is not in the singular but the plural; it is taken from the Third Letter of John, in which in verse 8 it is written: “We ought to support such men, that we may be fellow workers in the truth.”
Since the election of his successor Francis (sic), on March 13, 2013, there are not therefore two popes, but de facto an expanded ministry — with an active member and a contemplative member. This is why Benedict XVI has not given up either his name, or the white cassock. This is why the correct name by which to address him even today is “Your Holiness”; and this is also why he has not retired to a secluded monastery, but within the Vatican — as if he had only taken a step to the side to make room for his successor and a new stage in the history of the papacy which he, by that step, enriched with the “power station” of his prayer and his compassion located in the Vatican Gardens.”

On the same day as the ++Muller bombshell, we also got a big hit from Bobby Mickens, as reported by Ann Barnhardt with all the necessary commentary HERE.  You will note quotes from Bergoglio, to the tune of, “I think that a ‘pope emeritus’ has already become an institutionI believe that Pope Benedict XVI took this step which de facto instituted popes-emeriti,” Francis said. “He opened a door which is institutional, not exceptional.”
You understand that what INSTITUTIONAL means, right? Hint: It relates to a change in the structure of a thing, as in instituting a permanent change to it. 

People closest to (Bergoglio) believe he will step down, “after he’s discerned that he’s done all he has been called to do and has implemented solid reforms that will be hard for a successor to undo. That would be a way to ensure that Benedict’s resignation does not remain a singular, one-off occurrence and truly does become institutional and not exceptional.””

And then there was this:

Santa Marta and the end of centralized, monarchical Church authority
The Argentine pope made the first — and what is the most significant — reform of his pontificate in…his decision to…make his permanent home at the Casa Santa Marta. The choice of address was…part of his plan to demythologize the institution of the papacy and eliminate the lingering vestiges of the old papal court….He’s done this principally by laying the foundation (not without difficulty and opposition) for structures of synodality, first of all by strengthening and reforming the Synod of Bishops…that gives (or is aimed to give) national episcopal conferences greater decision-making and doctrinal authority that has been almost exclusively reserved to the pope and his aides in the Vatican up to now.
But this long-term project, which is only meant to unleash a process that will need years to mature, is not even fully launched yet. Pope Francis still needs to further reform a number of institution and offices in the Vatican that pertain to the all-but-dead monarchical papacy.

You’ve all purchased the book on the development of the papacy by Abp. Michael Miller, right? I mean, surely everyone with a dog in this hunt has at least done some basic level of research into THE premier work covering the widespread desire to transform or even eliminate the papacy in 1960s-70s Germany, right? You know that it was seen as a great ecumenical imperative, right? You know that, because of the Kirchensteuer, this initiative continues today with ++Kasper at the helm, right?
Getting back to the ++Muller document, in which he does NOT, note well, give name nor TITLE to his accused (full text HERE), and comparing the manifesto to the body of work compiled by Antipope Bergoglio, today’s Gospel for the Fifth Sunday after Epiphany seems quite timely, if not downright anticipatory:

“Another parable he proposed to them, saying: The kingdom of heaven is likened to a man that sowed good seeds in his field. But while men were asleep, his enemy came and oversowed cockle among the wheat and went his way. And when the blade was sprung up, and had brought forth fruit, then appeared also the cockle. And the servants of the goodman of the house coming said to him: Sir, didst thou not sow good seed in thy field? whence then hath it cockle? And he said to them: An enemy hath done this. And the servants said to him: Wilt thou that we go and gather it up? And he said: No, lest perhaps gathering up the cockle, you root up the wheat also together with it. Suffer both to grow until the harvest, and in the time of the harvest I will say to the reapers: Gather up first the cockle, and bind it into bundles to burn, but the wheat gather ye into my barn.”  Matthew 13:24-30

God is in charge. God will not be mocked.
Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.

Freemasonic Antipope vs. Fourth Lateran Council

The pluralism and the diversity of religions, color, sex, race and language are willed by God in His wisdom, through which He created human beings.”
Document on Human Fraternity, signed by Antipope Bergoglio

This… from Dr. de Mattei via Diane Montagna: HERE

…the Church has the mission of preserving and spreading the Catholic Faith. Our Lord said to the Apostles: “Go into all the world and preach the Gospel to the whole creation. He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned” (Mk 16:16). And the Apostle to the Gentiles stresses: “There is one Lord, one faith, one Baptism” (Eph. 4:5).

And this:

To subordinate the truth of faith to fraternity means to profess religious indifferentism, which has constantly been condemned by the universal Magisterium of the Church.

And this:

…fraternity does not propose any higher good that is worthy of sacrifice, beyond coexistence, which is not a value but is only a meaningless fact. The myth of fraternity actually conceals the deepest social egoism and represents the antithesis of Christian charity, which is the only true foundation of social relations between men.

And this:

Fraternity is also a dogma of Freemasonry, which in its ideology and rituals offers a parody of Christian doctrine and liturgy. It is no coincidence that the Grand Lodge of Spain, with this tweet, thanked Pope Francis for his Message of December 25, 2018, “Todos los masones del mundo se unen a la petición del Papa por ‘la fraternidad entre personas de diversas religions’ [“All the Freemasons of the world join the Pope’s request for ‘fraternity between people of different religions.’”]

It’s quite amazing how out in the open it all is. In your face kinda amazing. It all really has the feeling that we’re getting close to the end, doesn’t it? Close to something happening. Soon.

Just in case you need another reason to root against the Patriots

“The most important goal of a single Catholic man is to get his soul to heaven, but the most important goal of a married Catholic man expands to getting not only his own soul to heaven, but also those of his wife and children. It’s almost as if, as a result of the love that you share, you have one soul as a family.”
-Greg Zuerlein, Kicker, Los Angeles Rams

This guy is the goods. Full interview HERE.
Please note, this goal is not in any way selfish. It’s literally the reason God made us… so that we might know, love, and serve him in this world, in order to be together with him in the next. It’s basic Baltimore Catechism, which today lies buried beneath decades of felt banners and SJW virtue signalling of the post-conciliar era. This guy just gave greater witness in two sentences than sixty years worth of milquetoast catechesis. And yes, the husband as the head of the family does have a grave duty to get not only his own soul to Heaven, but also the souls of his wife and children.

Do you think a major reason some people are not practicing Catholics is that they see Catholicism as merely a religion of rules rather than a religion of love that also has rules?
“Some people see it as an either-or situation, as if you could love and then not be bound by any obligations. The opposite is true: The more you love, the more you willingly submit to obligations. They aren’t even seen as obligations by someone who loves, since the concern is showing love for the other person.
Maybe if people knew how much they were loved, they would love more in return. Thinking of the extensive sufferings Christ went through specifically for the good of our souls is really helpful. He suffered so intensely in the Garden of Gethsemane that he sweated blood. Then he was betrayed by someone close to him, publicly lied about, abandoned by almost all his followers, mocked, tortured and murdered.
That was all freely done so that we would be able to rise up from sin and become heirs to heaven. It helps us to see that being required to go to Mass on Sunday is not an arbitrary notion, but designed to draw us closer to the Source of holiness. It’s a matter of transforming us from sinners into saints.”

The commandments of God are the love of God. The way we show our love to God is by following them. They are not merely “ideals” which are impossible to live by. They are a road map to Heaven, revealed to us by a loving God. They are for our own good, because who knows what’s better for us than God does? Living by God’s law is the very means by which we grow in our relationship with Him… that “personal relationship with Jesus Christ”… that’s what this is. The commandments are love, the commandments are God, God is love, God is the Law. His commandments are the key to attaining the supernatural happiness which awaits us within the Beatific Vision, of which our human minds cannot remotely imagine, but they are also the key to finding contentment here in this vale of tears. And if you ever find yourself flirting with pride as you progress on this spiritual journey, remember that your success depends on, and comes only through, cooperating with grace; on our own, we merit nothing.

“I am so fortunate to have parents who take the Catholic faith seriously. In our family, it was made clear that certain things are required of us in order to get to heaven. The Church is there in so many ways for us to achieve that goal, so it is a matter of whether we want to cooperate with the grace available through the sacramental and devotional life of the Church. It’s all centered on Christ and radiates out through Mary, Joseph, the apostles, angels and so forth. I learned that growing up, but it’s becoming even clearer now.”

How many people alive today in the West are repulsed by the idea that something might be “required of them?” The entire culture is saturated with an unholy alliance of effeminacy, apathy, and acedia, to the point of being repulsive. It’s absolutely disgusting. I could go on, but this is supposed to be a good feelz post.
This next part is when I knew our favorite kicker was a ringer:

“…I finished Four Witnesses by Rod Bennett in two or three days. It’s about what Clement of Rome, Ignatius of Antioch, Justin Martyr and Irenaeus of Lyons learned from the apostles. It indicates how Catholic the early Church was, since things like the importance of bishops and the unity of believers are written of.
The writings of the first leaders of the Church after the apostles are good things to point out to Protestant friends who tend to see history as having a 1,500-year gap between the apostles and the origin of Protestantism. The Church was Catholic from the beginning; we’ve always been a family in faith, led by bishops and priests who can trace their holy orders back to the apostles, who themselves were ordained by Christ. Apostolic succession means the continuation of the life of Christ in the world.”

Four Witnesses is my number one go-to book for Protestant friends who may be on the verge of converting. The arguments therein are absolutely devastating to the notion that the “true church” was underground for 1500 years. The content is truly irrefutable. I would be interested to hear from the readership any converts for whom this book was like scales falling from their eyes. Even if you are already firmly Catholic, buy this book.
Let’s move on from apologetics and talk about apostacy:

“I know someone who said he doesn’t go to Mass because of Pope Francis (sic). There seems to be a lack of understanding that infallibility is a limited gift. We can disagree with what a pope says in a press conference; what we are called to believe in is what the Church has passed down to us through the generations. Even if today’s leaders don’t teach this clearly, it remains what it is, and we are still supposed to believe it and live it — especially at Sunday Mass.”

On the one hand, you might say that anyone who quit going to Mass because of the current Roman Fiasco didn’t have much of a faith to begin with. But I’m not sure about that. Two guys in white behind the Vatican walls, one of them a full blown Lutheran (at best)… is bound to be a little disconcerting to the average pewsitter, no? Not everyone is granted the same level of grace when it comes to faith; it’s a gift that is given in different measures. Since we know to expect a religious deception so diabolical that unless those times be shortened, even the elect would be deceived, we best tread carefully. First and foremost, we need to get out the word to all with ears to hear, that Bergoglio is an antipope who has usurped the Petrine see, and he must be removed (not deposed, mind you, because he holds no office and no legitimate power).

“It is unfortunate when Catholicism is not taught clearly, because then people can get really confused about the most basic things, even things that aren’t specifically Catholic. Abortion is sometimes presented as one issue among many or even overlooked, but you don’t even have to belong to the Church to know that killing babies is wrong and that it is more important than other issues.”

Maybe Greg can be the next governor of Virginia.
Amen and Go Rams.
