THE CHIEF HERETIC IN CANADA
The Real Renegade
But Francis, in his own ecumenical fervor, would rather attack the missionaries (or, as Francis calls them, “ideological colonizers”) than their murderers. Hence he embarks on what he calls a “penitential pilgrimage” to apologize for what missionaries were explicitly commanded to do by Christ Himself in His very last commission to them before He ascended to the Father!
Unlike Francis, however, the missionaries took Christ seriously.
summons the great “Western
Grandmother” with turkey whistle
Convening with the native-Canadian Elders and Chiefs, Francis and Friends become gravely and appropriately reflective, hands over hearts as instructed by the Elder who, after blowing a “Turkey Whistle” four times: once each for the North, South, East, and West, tells the cardinals with Francis, that they are to place their hands over their hearts, each of which he describes as a “talking stick” [?] and then asks the “Western Grandmother” [?] to “give us access to the sacred circle of spirits.” At that point, every Catholic (and human being) should have fled, rightly fearing the invocation of demons.
But not Francis! Or his coterie, including men with towering titles but apparently little faith:
Of course, as good Ecumenists, the pope and prelates obey with obviously deep emotion:
This is not merely deeply scandalous and shameful — but is a sampling
of the increasing defection from Christ, Sacred Scripture, and authentic
Church Teaching (preceding Vatican II). Ecumenism, it appears, has become
a “religion” in its own right, not simply a “doctrine” of the new “Post-Conciliar
catholic church” that emerged from Vatican II, but as a central and
defining dogma within it. It is no longer an endeavor of the Catholic
Church, but has replaced it, retaining the name merely to maintain revenue
through a false sense of continuity with its glorious 2000-year history
— an historical continuity that no longer exists ... and all remembrance
of which it absolutely detests. The “Post-Conciliar catholic church”
abolished genuine Catholicism in 1962 when it chose man over God and
social remediation over the salvation of immortal souls.
Following the ritual, Francis delivered the speech condemning “ideological colonization” (i.e., evangelization), insisting that its complicity in fostering paganism was consonant with Ecumenism! Indeed, Francis further argued that,
Is this Francis’s ultimate “appeal to authority” —
the U.N. … not God?
Ah, yes, the Schools!

ARE WE ALL CHILDREN OF GOD ... no matter what?
Jorge Bergoglio made the following statement in 2017 — and I think it is now time to revisit it in light of his peremptory agendum of unbridled Ecumenism — a heretical concept altogether ... prior to Vatican II — and which Francis frenetically promotes at the cost of authentic Catholicism. He asks — as though the question itself is altogether rhetorical:
“Is it possible God
has some children He does not love? NO! We are
ALL God’s beloved children.” (pope
more troubling still, is that this question is,
in fact, received by most post-Conciliar Catholics
as merely rhetorical, that
is to say, as though the answer is already understood
in the asking — and that answer, of course, is a
resounding: “yes — of course! After all,
everyone goes to Heaven! The pope
himself routinely tells us so!” —
despite what Christ tells us about the
“hard and narrow” way to Heaven:
Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.” (Jesus Christ: Saint Matthew 7.15-23)
Oh, yes, concerning the “false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves”, may we suggest that you consider five:
That is to say, in short, every pontiff who instigated, promoted, or was complicit in the heresy we have come to know as Vatican II which decimated the Church and Religious Orders, contemned and vitiated Her teachings, effectively abrogated Her Sacred Tradition, laid siege to Her Sacred Deposit of Faith, outlawed her language (Latin), abolished the Mass of the Ages (Tridentine), defiled the Sanctuary with women “Ministers” of Communion (note that they are no longer designated as “Extraordinary-ministers”), secularized the Liturgy, and homosexualized Her priests, bishops, and cardinals.
Consider the following: Catholic Mass attendance was 75+% in 1955 and plunged to 20-30% in 2017. In 1970, 55 % of American Catholics went to Mass every Sunday, and in 2019 that figure dwindled to 20%.“The Center for Church Management at Villanova University projects an attendance rate in the neighborhood of 12 percent by next year or the year after.” 2 “Altar girls” vastly outnumber “Altar-Boys” and both are “socially/correctly” neutered as “Altar Servers” — thereby abolishing any distinction in gender in deference to the rise of “Woman Church” and the poison of Feminism.
All this — ALL OF IT — is the fruit of Vatican II ... every effeminate and recreant priest, bishop, and cardinal; the feminization and homosexualization of nearly every aspect of the once glorious edifice of the Holy Catholic Church — has left it in ruins, pallid and prostate before the World which it loves before God. There are good and faithful traditional priests — who are persecuted mercilessly by their bishops, cardinals ... and even the pope. Good men. Manly men. Priests of Almighty God! Men who do not lisp — and who would die before kissing the Muslim Quran! Not so Francis. Not so!
Vatican II really sound like a success story to
you? Then look
We might take the initial quoted citation from Holy Scripture (Saint Matthew 9.11-15) as a prologue merely to the many disagreements between Francis and Jesus Christ in this matter (and many, many others.) Consider the following:
“Not every one that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the Kingdom of Heaven: but he that doth the will of My Father who is in Heaven, he shall enter into the kingdom of heaven. Many will say to me in that day: Lord, Lord, have not we prophesied in Thy name, and cast out devils in Thy name, and done many miracles in Thy name? And
“If thou wilt enter into life, keep the commandments.”
“If you love me, keep my commandments.”
“What fellowship hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? Or what part hath the faithful with the unbeliever?
Citations from Holy Scripture in which Francis openly contradicts Christ are too many to enumerate. 3
Whom do we Believe?
The point is simply this: whom shall we believe? The Master or the servant? Truth Himself — Who stood before Pontius Pilate on the day He was crucified 4 while Pilate pedantically asked,“What is Truth?” ... even as Truth bled in his presence 5 — or His feckless vicar who either distorts or contradicts the truth entrusted to him? In other words, are we to believe Truth Himself or His recreant proxy who speaks in open contradiction to the Truth?
The influence of Francis’s hero, the arch-heretic Martin Luther is unmistakable:
The correspondence between Francis’s, “Is it possible God has some children He does not love? NO! We are ALL God’s beloved children.” — and Luther’s, “Love God and sin boldly ... No sin can separate us from Him.” — is unmistakable. This is the most manifest and deadly fruit of the heresy called Ecumenism.
Let us be less textually literal and absolutely clear on the substance of these mutually corroborating statements:
Who can so much as conceptualize God uttering something like, “These are my beloved children: Adolf Hitler and his brothers Diocletian, Mao Zedong, Joseph Mengele, Stalin, Hideki Tojo, Nero, Genghis Khan, and Caligula.”?
Who, indeed, is their father? Are they the “beloved children of God” whom Francis Bergoglio would have us believe — or are they those of whom Christ spoke: “You are of your father the devil.” They cannot be both.
Either Christ is a deceiver — or Francis is.
However, being God with the Father and the Holy Ghost, Christ can neither deceive nor be deceived.6
Francis can, will, and does.
“Such a harsh, even cruel statement!”, you will reproach me.
Less harsh, I will respond, and far less frightening than the words of Christ at the Last Judgment:
The god of Francis, it turns out, is not the God of Sacred Scripture. He fabricates his god to assuage the guilt and fear of men — the better to accord with the World, the Flesh, and primeval things of darkness that have no place in the Light ...

Each day we bring you a calendar, a list really, of the holy Martyrs who had suffered and died for Christ, for His Bride the Church, and for our holy Catholic Faith; men and women for whom — and well they knew — their Profession of Faith would cost them their lives.
They could have repudiated all three (Christ, Church, and Catholic Faith) and kept their lives for a short time longer (even the lapsi only postponed their death — and at so great a cost!)
What would motivate men, women, even children and entire families to willingly undergo the most evil and painfully devised tortures; to suffer death rather than denial?
Why did they not renounce their Catholic Faith when the first flame licked at their feet, after the first eye was plucked out, or after they were “baptized” in mockery by boiling water or molten lead poured over their heads? Why did they not flee to offer incense to the pagan gods since such a ritual concession would be merely perfunctory, having been done, after all, under duress, exacted by the compulsion of the state? What is a little burned incense and a few words uttered without conviction, compared to your own life and the lives of those you love? Surely God knows that you are merely placating the state with empty gestures …
Did they love their wives, husbands, children — their mothers, fathers and friends less than we do? Did they value their own lives less? Were they less sensitive to pain than we are? In a word, what did they possess that we do not?
Nothing. They possessed what we ourselves are given in the Sacrament of Confirmation — but cleaved to it in far greater measure than we do: Faith and faithfulness; fortitude and valor, uncompromising belief in the invincible reality of God, of life eternal in Him for the faithful, of damnation everlasting apart from Him for the unfaithful; of the ephemerality of this passing world and all within it, and lives lived in total accord with that adamant belief.
We are the Martyrs to come! What made them so will make us so. What they suffered we will suffer. What they died for, we will die for. If only we will! For most us, life will be a bloodless martyrdom, a suffering for Christ, for the sake of Christ, for the sake of the Church in a thousand ways outside the arena. The road to Heaven is lined on both sides with Crosses, and upon the Crosses people, people who suffered unknown to the world, but known to God. Catholics living in partibus infidelium, under the scourge of Islam. Loveless marriages. Injustices on all sides. Poverty. Illness. Old age. Dependency. They are the cruciform! Those whose lives became Crosses because they would not flee God, the Church, the call to, the demand for, holiness in the most ordinary things of life made extraordinary through the grace of God. The Martyrology we celebrate each day is just a vignette, a small, immeasurably small, sampling of the martyrdom that has been the lives of countless men and women whom Christ and the Angels know, but whom the world does not know.
“Exemplum enim dedi vobis”, Christ said to His Apostles: “I have given you an example.” And His Martyrs give one to us — and that is why the Martyrs matter.
