The Vatican on Wednesday published the modifications he approved, which emphasise his vision for the lay faithful taking on a greater role in church affairs that have long been left to clerics, bishops and cardinals.
Ever since the Second Vatican Council, the 1960s meetings that modernized the church, popes have summoned the world’s bishops to Rome for a few weeks at a time to debate particular topics.
At the end of the meetings, the bishops vote on specific proposals and put them to the pope, who then produces a document taking their views into account.
Until now, the only people who could vote were men.
But under the new changes, five religious sisters will join five priests as voting representatives for religious orders.
At this rate, in a few years, the only people populating the fake Norco church will be SJWs, sexual curiosities, and freemasons. How it works, I do not know, but we will have to select a Pope, I suppose, and then perhaps a crusade to Rome will be in order to exorcise what’s left of the filth. Deus vult.
About a year ago, I again declared the obvious that Jorge Bergoglio is not and never was the Pope. At that time, I still reluctantly accepted the legitimacy of Ratzinger/Benedict. Now following the man’s death, I’m not so sure. In fact, I’m probably leaning back towards 1958. Call it the Kurgan Effect. At any rate, as of today, one is either a Sedevacantist or else one is a modernist churchian pretender. Something to consider in 2023.
This! Should be that final post of 2022. See you in January.
I read Crisis sometimes, mainly for Anthony Esolen and Mary Cuff. A few others. Sometimes. But, Eric Sammons might have just shown his colors and those of the publication: The Spiritual Dangers of Sedevacantism.
Yes, of course, he won’t refute any of the “Benepapists” as he can’t. I’m sure he’ll someday come around, right? Maybe he’ll look into the dangers of schism and and heresy.
Regarding this week’s fake Motu Proprio, restricting or killing the Latin Rite Mass, Jorge Bergoglio is not the Pope, never has been Pope, and never will be Pope. He might not even be a Christian. The Quo Primum Pian Rite is eternal and irrevocable. Fake Popes are not.
[Fake] Pope Francis on Thursday denounced “aggressive” nationalism that rejects migrants, and said Catholics should follow the Gospel-mandated call for an inclusive, welcoming church that doesn’t distinguish between “natives and foreigners, residents and guests.”
Francis made the appeal in his annual message for migrants and refugees. He said the current pandemic had shown how the concept of the human family had been “fragmented, wounded and disfigured,” with the poorest and most marginalized paying the highest price.
The universal “we,” he said, “is crumbling and cracking due to myopic and aggressive forms of nationalism and radical individualism.”
He demanded that Catholics in particular actually act “catholic” in the universal sense, noting that migrants and refugees enrich the faith, the church and one another.
To quote Joe Wilson, “you lie!” The good news is that the truly Biblically-mandated nations and their worthy proponents are winning. We’re literally “crumbling and cracking” the devil’s Globo, Inc. underfoot.
It’s not just starting and it’s never over. Another battle, in Louisiana:
Archbishop Gregory Aymond of New Orleans ordered the removal and burning of the altar of the Saints Peter and Paul Roman Catholic Church in Pearl River, Louisiana. The move was in response to a sex scandal involving the now-former priest of the church, who was arrested on charges of obscenity last week. Travis Clark was allegedly caught filming himself having sex with two women, described as “dominatrices” by the media, on the altar of the church entrusted to his ministry.
“His obscene behavior was deplorable. His desecration of the altar in church was demonic. I am infuriated by his actions,” Aymond said in a video address on Friday. “When the details became clear, we had the altar removed and burned. I will consecrate a new altar tomorrow.”
According to court papers, Clark, 37 invited Mindy Dixon, 41, and Melissa Cheng, 23 to the church to engage in group sex. It reportedly involved sex toys and was filmed in a semi-professional setting, which included lighting equipment.
An onlooker spotted what was happening and called the police, who arrested the three at the scene and seized the incriminating pornographic evidence. One of the women reportedly bragged on social media that she was about to “defile a house of God” before going to the encounter.
The highlighted brag quote tells you all you need to know. They’re rather open about their hatred. They can’t stand God though they still recognize His station as Holy and superior, something to “defile.” In the old days, the altar wouldn’t have been the only thing burned.
In addition to teaching more, private schools tend to keep families intact better than the converged government schools. Families, of course, are unnatural and oppressive according to the nation destroyers.
Family is no different, with different types of schools putting young people on distinctive paths towards family formation and marital stability. Until now, however, we have known little about how different types of schools are linked to students’ family life as adults. The limited research that exists in this area indicates that religious schooling is associated with higher rates of marriage among young adults, but we know less about how different forms of schooling are related to the risk of divorce in adulthood or to non-marital childbearing throughout one’s life.7
In this report, we examine how enrollment in American Catholic, Protestant, secular private, and public schools is associated with different family outcomes later in life.8 We analyze nationally representative data from the Understanding America Study (UAS) and the National Longitudinal Survey 1997 (NLSY97) to explore the links between adults’ prior schooling and their odds of marrying, divorcing, and having a child outside of marriage.
Men and women who have been educated in a private school tend to be more likely to be married, less likely to have ever divorced, and less likely to have had a child outside of wedlock.
The authors conclude: ” students who attend private schools are more likely to forge successful families as adult men and women.” One would suspect that, as with other matters, homeschooled (or unschooled) children do even better by these metrics. Home (school) is where the heart is; the family too.
I wrote another column on the gamboling fun of organized sports entertainment in 2020. In short: it’s not happening, or not happening much, sorry. Be your own sport. Buck the trends and get in shape. There. I may have more on that later. For now, consider the following, which I deemed of greater value:
Perplexed as always, the Disciples asked Jesus to explain what caused their failure in doing that which He did with ease. “He answered, ‘Because you have so little faith. In truth I tell you, if your faith is the size of a mustard seed you will say to this mountain, “Move from here to there,” and it will move; nothing will be impossible for you.‘” Matthew 17:20.
We, all of us, could use a little more faith these days.
One thing leads to another. I was reading a Mary Cuff article at Crisis the other day and, in a very rare move, I clicked on a pop-up ad. And I’m glad I did because it led me to a video presentation by Church Militant featuring Father Paul Kalchik.
Kalchik is almost a household name in right-wing, traditional, American Catholic households. We, some of us, have followed his titanic battle against the forces of the sodomitical wolves currently at work against both the Church and the Flock. Because of HOAXID-19, it was, of course, a virtual teleconference. Because of his amazing victory, and subsequent lavender mafia retaliation, Kalchik joined the show from a place of hiding. However, there is no hiding the magnitude of his inspirational message.
Part of the missive, which amounts to an hour-long homily of peace, was the above-cited parable about the mustard seed of faith. My thoughts of late, regarding the state of the world and especially the terminal decline of the American nation and the United States, have led me to consider that our main problem is the woeful character of the people. I summed it up to myself as people being both wicked and stupid. One is bad enough on its own; together they are a dreadful combination as one amplifies the other. We see the results all around us: a people, barely surviving, who almost gleefully play the fool’s part in accepting hoaxes, lies, degradations, and disaster, all wrought by the same usual suspects who have lied to, robbed, and murdered humanity for centuries.
Father Kalchik sees all of this too. He takes a calmer, more reflective approach to it than some (not looking at your author, no…). He names the problem and those behind it. Call them globalists, globopedos, the illuminati, fear-mongers, or whatever you will, they are only the dark one and his loathsome servants. It really is that simple. And, Father K. offers a surprisingly simple solution for us: Faith and Prayer. Well, those simplicities along with a healthy dose of RESISTANCE, which is the title of CM’s conference.
He gives concrete steps anyone can take to fight the forces of hell. It’s all bound by faith in Jesus Christ. It takes strength through prayer. And it moves through calm questioning, learning, and action.
Due to his own circumstances, he’s understandably taken with the technology of encryption. I do wonder about his suggested “digital catacombs.” Have we come that far, or retreated that far? Perhaps. You be the judge once you’ve seen or heard the message in full.
Along the way, in the presentation, Father tells some of his own backstories. He adds a great quote from the late Archbishop Fulton Sheen about not going with the flow: “dead bodies float downstream.” He also discounts just a select few of the more recent hoaxes set into motion by the luciferians, including:
The general uselessness of the tacky popular culture;
Y2K (I’d forgotten about that!);
Corona hype and hysteria.
Again, he only chose a few and only those from the more recent decades of memory. In every case, all cases, it is the same evil at work.
His ultimate point is that, eternally, evil cannot win. Without our consent and participation, it really can do little more than annoy us who are in the world but not of it. Still, a certain Carpenter told us to take care of business until He returns. We have a solemn obligation to resist. That’s where so many of us – at times, all of us – fail. Fortunately, inspirationally, the fix is as small as the mustard seed. It’s high time to move some mountains.
Please take an hour out of your busy, locked-down, masked lives and watch the following (or, as I did, listen to it while doing something else):
Fr. Kalchik, CM, June 2020.
Furthermore, kindly pray for Fr. Kalchik. For a brief explanation of why he’s “on the run,” please read THIS and THIS. In summary, he took a page from the Lord and Saint Paul and mortally angered the sodomite usurpers by burning one of their sacrilegious artifacts. In a (perhaps distantly) forthcoming novel, I have a heroic character based on Kalchik. In a literal world that frequently out-shocks the most dystopian fiction, it’s good that we have real characters, real heroes, like him.
Now, all, please acquire the seeds, and move those mountains.
