Synod on Synodality S.O.S.


Schisma iam factum est

The Catholic Church is in Schism already

The Real Schismatic: Pope Francis

and this man is the cause

Part 1

This day, October 4, 2023, will likely go down in history as the unraveling of the first thread in the fabric of the most ancient, the most enduring and the holiest institution in the annals of human history: the One, True, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church which has persevered in keeping unblemished the resplendent teachings ensconced in the Sacred Deposit of Faith and given Her by Jesus Christ — Her Spouse — Who is the sole Savior of the World; and by His Holy Apostles to whom He entrusted them as the means to bringing the lot of men to salvation in a World that must come because this world is passing away. 

For more than 2000 years His Bride, the Church, preserved these teachings unstained, free of the blight of the world to which lesser institutions succumbed in yielding to its allurement, and to the flesh, and the devil. Unable to hold fast to the Cross to which the Son of God fastened Himself — and to which He called all men if they would follow in His footsteps — one by one they fell away, choosing instead to embrace that unholy triad that has ever been the scourge of Godly men: the World with its enticements, the Flesh and its seductions, and the beckoning of the Devil to the death of sin.

She endured. She prevailed! Martyrs made Saints in the crucible of suffering called us to holiness through example. “Respice in finem!” is their cry to us: “Look to the End!” ... not here where we have no lasting home ... but to Heaven, to the end of all things!

Today, October 4, 2023, that clarion call, that magnificent summons to the beauty and everlastingness of sanctity ... failed in Rome. It was thrown down from the Seat of Peter upon which sits one utterly unworthy. It deferred to the enemies of the sons of men: the world with which it now makes treaty, the flesh in the decadence of effeminate men and masculine women — and the Devil who boasted to Christ in the Third Temptation:

“To Thee will I give all this power, and the glory of them; for to me they are delivered, and to whom I will, I give them.” (St. Luke 4.6)

Bergoglio’s hand has long been open, and today the fulfillment of that boast appears terribly imminent.

Is this to say that the Catholic Church is coming to the end after 70 years of decline instigated by Vatican II? No! Not the Holy Catholic Church — only its simulacrum: the Post-Catholic Conciliar Church” of Vatican II.

However unfaithful Her shepherds, Christ is the Faithful One and has promised that She will prevail against the gates of Hell ... and the brittle fist in lavender gloves.
