“The house of our holiness, and of our glory, where our fathers praised Thee, is burnt with fire, and all our lovely things are turned into ruins.” (Isaiah 64.11)
You are, no doubt, familiar with the phrase “the Holy Father” referring to the man who sits upon the Seat of Saint Peter and is eo ipso the pope of the Catholic Church. It was, for nearly 2000 years, a title of due reverence to the Vicar of Jesus Christ on Earth — and was associated with holiness in person, or at least integrity of character. He was always a man who defended the teachings, doctrines, and dogmas of the Holy Catholic Church — which, regrettably, is no longer “Holy” (and if truth be told, no longer “Catholic”).
In reality the Post-Conciliar Church of Vatican II is merely a simulacrum, a caricature, of the once “Holy Roman Catholic Church” whose name it arrogated even as it threw the pearls of Her holiness under the cloven hooves of pigs.1
I recognize that this sounds severe. It is meant to be.
How few those who with clarity and courage denounce this manifest and unmitigated distinction! Both clerical and lay are unwilling to call what is counterfeit nothing less than ecclesiastical forgery and fraud out of fear of persecution, of being marginalized, of being labeled a “rigid” or “Traditional Catholic” — the very type Catholic whom Bergoglio ridicules and detests! Has the unreasoned fear of this crude and petulant pontiff so paralyzed the once courageous Catholic witness in the world that none dare defy him for fear of ... fear of ... what???
Do you fear that you will be “excommunicated” from this warped and mutant monstrosity that has lost all continuity with the real Catholic Church which it parodies? Why would you wish to be part of an illegitimate travesty? Better an orphan than a bastard. Oh, yes, you will have great difficulty finding a parish that worships the True and Living God in the “Most Holy Sacrifice of the Mass” before the Post-Conciliar-Church banned and criminalized it (The Mass of the all the Saints preceding it!) — with the sole exception that you, at the same time, acknowledge and give credence to the farcical Liturgy accredited by the Post-Conciliar-Church and cruelly imposed on the Faithful.
In these days fraught with heresy and apostasy, pan-paganism and atheism, this new Post-Conciliar Church spawned by Vatican II has made it quite clear that the monolithic Catholicism which preceded it is, indeed, in need of extreme attenuation. Before being a “Catholic” required a conditional, and factional antecedent (“Conservative Catholic”, “Liberal Catholic”, “Progressive Catholic”, “Charismatic Catholic”, “Vatican II Catholic”, “Pre-Vatican II Catholic”, “Sedevacantist Catholic” — that is to say, when a Catholic was simply a non-nuanced Catholic — and not a “kind” of Catholic, there simply was no confusion in being Catholic. Everything was quite clear and definite: things such as morals, dogmas, millennia-imbued teaching, theology, marriage, sexuality, having children, and those now-quaint concepts of “obligations” and “certitudes”.
With Vatican II and the inauguration of the Post-Conciliar Church, “kinds of Catholics” emerged and quite suddenly began to divide the Church, splintering the One Body into separate — and separated — “ideological” ghettos — once again, prior to what the whole world knew about precisely what you were and what you believed (or at least what you should really be, and what you should have believed) as a Catholic.
This, of course, is no longer
so. Antagonism at the highest levels of the Post-Conciliar-Church, disparage,
ridicule, and separate themselves from the mere “Catholic” who believes
and cleaves to “the Faith of His Fathers” with its 2000 years of credentials.
Such a Catholic is now disparaged as “backward” and “rigid” by “the
Holy Father” of the Post-Conciliar-Church (not to be confused with the
authentic Roman Catholic Church). “holy father Jorge Bergoglio” (no
typo there) has
much to say about this … most of it incoherent ... when not
pontificating about the Amazonian Face of the Church, the
environment, plastic in the ocean, politics, economies — and
yet strangely says nothing relevant to his job-description
as Pontiff concerning salvation, Jesus Christ,
the Conversion of Souls, and Hell itself (which he dismisses as a
But it was precisely Karol Wojtyla and Josef
Ratzinger who vigorously promoted not just the absurdity of
Ecumenism, but nothing less an affront to God as Pantheism!
The inter-religious meeting and worship at Assisi
under the auspices of Karol Wojtyla (JPII) was blasphemous and the
sin of sacrilege no less than three times: 1986, 1993 and 2002!
Josef Ratzinger pursued Ecumenism with no less vigor in 2011! And
Jorge (Francis) is the culmination of this sacrilege by
apotheosizing the Earth, the Environment, and the “Amazonian-Face”
of Pachamama solemnly borne into the Basilica of Saint Peter
and worshipped before him and his prelates in the Vatican Garden.
You will surely pardon me while I vomit.
