Pope breaks rules as he washes feet of disabled people in pre-Easter ritual

Why am I not surprised! Once again, our impious pope includes women and non-Catholics in the Holy Thursday ritual called “the Washing of the Feet.” Traditionally, its supposed to be 13 Catholic males only, either clerics or poor men. 12 to represent the Apostles and one more to represent the mysterious 13th person Pope St. Gregory the Great saw during one Holy Thursday (he suspected that it was either Our Lord Himself or an Angel). The ritual is heavily connected to the Catholic priesthood, which women and non-Catholic are not permitted to join. Once again, a gross display of egalitarianism and unholiness. The man is an embarrassment. 

Every Catholic should be outraged and disgusted.

This is my 2,014th post!

Today, March 25th, is the Feast of the Annunciation, the traditional date of the Passion of Our Lord and also the 23rd anniversary of the passing of one of the greatest Confessors of the Catholic faith in our times and in the whole Church since her founding, Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre. 
May Marcel Lefebvre, Bishop of the Catholic Church, Confessor of the Catholic Faith, Savior of the Catholic priesthood, Savior of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass of All Time, Founder of the Society of St. Pius X, intercede for the faithful suffering here in this dreadful warfare. May one day he be completely vindicated by a converted Rome and I hope that one day, if Time is permitted to continue on, that my great-grandchildren get to celebrate the feast day of St. Marcel Lefebvre, Bishop, Confessor and Doctor.

If you wish to know the real reason for my persistence, it is this. At the hour of my death, when Our Lord asks me: ‘What have you done with your episcopate, what have you done with your episcopal and priestly grace?’ I do not want to hear from His lips the terrible words ‘You have helped to destroy the Church along with the rest of them.’  — Abp. Marcel Lefebvre

RORATE CÆLI: How to Regard Vatican II a special essay by Don Pietro Leone

The article is amazing for the mere fact that in included 5 links to very well formatted pdfs of the original schemata of Vatican II, ones that were thrown out by the “Rhine faction” (the Liberals and Neo-Modernists) right at the start of Vatican II. Archbishop Lefebvre was a member of the Preparatory Committee for Vatican II and we can read his defense of these documents in his book I Accuse The Council, which can also be found online in pdf format. I suggest reading them and Archbishop Lefebvre’s book on the Council. 

He gives us an analogy of how the Modernist, the Pacifists and us Trads evaluate Vatican II. The letter C was the trad (and most right) option. He includes his opinion, opinion D: “For this reason [Vatican II] cannot be used for teaching the faithful or seminarians, but must be set aside: an unreliable teacher must be dismissed from service. […] As for the Council, we may treat it in the way in which it treated Tradition: with silence. And we shall call this silence the ‘Hermeneutic of Forgetfulness’.

No. C is most right and I don’t say that just because I am a Traditionalist but because it is the most logical and safe. Vatican II must be declared, as a whole, a robber council and there must be a Vatican III or whatever to start over again, making each teaching absolutely clear and unequivocal, with the appropriate anathemas condemning the modern errors (such as Communism, Sodomy, Abortion, etc) and each of the errors of Vatican II (False Religious Liberty, False Ecumenism and Collegiality). The next great Council must also proclaim as de fide the 5th Marian Dogma (so as to ensure a great deal of grace to rain down upon the Church as she closes a true Council of the Church). Setting it aside (where? how?) and silence alone will not be enough to undo all the evils of the past 50 years or more. It will take the force of another, dogmatic, Council. After all, along with Vatican II must go the 1983 Code of Canon Law, the Novus Ordo Mass (and all of its future hybrids) and the modern catechisms (namely the CCC). A future Council will have the power to set things right. This is what I pray for with every Rosary. 

Minor problems:

The author uses the “Subsistit In" error of Lumen Gentium as a running example of ambiguity in the texts. But never once does he mention that it was a Protestant observer to handed this formula to then Fr. Joseph Ratzinger who, being the Neo-Modernist that he was, then handed it on to the Council Fathers for deliberation. Most unfortunately it found support and was included in the official texts. An embarrassing blemish on Benedict the (not-so) Magnificent! No, never has he repudiated the error itself or his minor but influential involvement in spreading this error; but rather, has allowed it to be defended and taught all over the world. It is the foundational error of all false ecumenism. 

If the Church desires to draw some benefit out of this body, she must consign it to such experts as are competent to evaluate it, as we have said above.

Who would they be? Sorry, these hoped for “experts” have all been taught Vatican II, or have signed an oath, devised by then Cardinal Ratzinger, stating that they accept Vatican II as an integral part of Tradition. Even the priests in Traditional communities has all been compromised, even in the SSPX itself (See Bishop Fellay’s footnotes in his April 15th, 2012 Doctrinal Declaration)!!! It will take an act of God to undo all of this mess, not those who think they are experts. 

Imagine that the Rector of a seminary with 100 students decides to switch from a relatively expensive, old-fashioned bakery at some distance from the seminary to a cheaper, modern one in easier reach, and then discovers that out of the 100 buns which it delivers every day, approximately 71 regularly contain food-poisoning. What is he to do?

I address this problem to any SSPXers on Tumblr who may be unaware, or who deny, that there is a major crisis in the SSPX. The author here seems to imply, and it may just be a randomly picked number, that 71% of Vatican II is bad, or as he says often, 71% of Vatican is obscure and has a primarily non-Catholic sense (29% is one hundred percent Catholic). But Bishop Fellay says that 95% of Vatican II is good and acceptable! Only 5% is bad. If we use the example above, only 5 buns were poisoned according to the Superior General of the SSPX, a supposedly “schismatic” community full of Hard heads and Neo-Pelagians! Who is right? Sadly, Bishop Fellay is now one of those horrid “pacifists” the author examined. Why am I finding myself liking this priest better than I like Bishop Fellay himself?  Right or wrong, it is probably because this priest is honest and I like that.

The Remnant Newspaper - The Curious Case of Fr. Paul Nicholson

Just goes to show you that there are priests out there who say the TLM but are not always the most trustworthy and can still lead souls astray. That’s why I refuse to attend an FSSP or Diocesan TLM. God only knows what lies and calumny they spread!

For those who continue to doubt the truth, I suggest studying this canonical defense of The Validity of Confessions and Marriages in the SSPX.

Pray for the poor, deluded, soul of Fr. Paul Nicholson.

thetalkingsaint said: I feel you may be going to far, with the your case against Father Paul and just because he is not in line with SSPX views.

It is not my case. If you have a problem with the facts then take it up with Christ Jackson, the author of the article. Take it up with the authors of the articles linked to his essay. But unless you have some proof to the contrary (real historical proof not ad hominen attacks) then you have not leg to stand on. You may be ignorant of the facts, and so can be excused, but Fr. Paul is a priest and has no excuse. Therefore, since he denies historical truth, that the SSPX is not in schism, he is deluded.   

There are many people, including priests, out there who are not “in line with SSPX views” but don’t dare make the false claims he does because they know that it is a matter of historical truth. The claim of the SSPX being in any type of schism has been put to rest by the Vatican itself. The historical facts, which I have presented on Tumblr many times before today, speak for themselves! The SSPX is not in schism. We never have been and never will be. How can priests who claim to be obedient still say we are in schism? Archbishop Lefebvre made it clear as day, explicit as he could get it, that he was not consecrating bishops out of hatred for the Church or out of hatred for the Pope. He said he was not making a “parallel Church” or setting himself up as a pope. Even the 1983 Code of Canon Law opposes the claim that we are in schism (Consecrating Bishops without a Papal Mandate is only disobedience, not an act of schism). So how can Fr. Paul be given any sort of respect? He can’t. He is deluded. He only cares for his own opinion and nothing more. Pope Francis can say that we are not in schism himself and Fr. Paul will keep on saying that we are. He doesn’t love the truth, historical truth in this case. He loves himself. And if he doesn’t love mere historical truth enough to adhere to what it demands then how can he possibly love divine truth and its demands?

Meditation on Death Chapter 23 of “The Imitation of Christ” By Thomas á Kempis

Very soon the end of your life will be at hand: consider, therefore, the state of your soul. Today a man is here; tomorrow he is gone.(I Machabees 2:63) And when he is out of sight, he is soon out of mind. Oh, how dull and hard is the heart of man, which thinks only of the present, and does not provide against the future! You should order your every deed and thought, as though today were the day of your death. Had you a good conscience, death would hold no terrors for you; (Luke 12:37) even so, it were better to avoid sin than to escape death. (Wisdom 4:16) If you are not ready to die today, will tomorrow find you better prepared? (Matthew 24:44) Tomorrow is uncertain; and how can you be sure of tomorrow? Of what use is a long life, if we amend so little? Alas, a long life often adds to our sins rather than to our virtue!

Would to God that we might spend a single day really well! Many recount the years since their conversion, but their lives show little sign of improvement. If it is dreadful to die, it is perhaps more dangerous to live long. Blessed is the man who keeps the hour of his death always in mind, and daily prepares himself to die. If you have ever seen anyone die, remember that you, too, must travel the same road.(Hebrews 9:27)

Each morning remember that you may not live until evening; and in the evening, do not presume to promise yourself another day. Be ready at all times, (Luke 21:36) and so live that death may never find you unprepared. Many die suddenly and unexpectedly; for at an hour that we do not know the Son of Man will come. (Matthew 24:44) When your last hour strikes, you will begin to think very differently of your past life, and grieve deeply that you have been so careless and remiss.

Happy and wise is he who endeavours to be during his life as he wishes to be found at his death. For these things will afford us sure hope of a happy death; perfect contempt of the world; fervent desire to grow in holiness; love of discipline; the practice of penance; ready obedience; self-denial; the bearing of every trial for the love of Christ. While you enjoy health, you can do much good; but when sickness comes, little can be done. Few are made better by sickness, and those who make frequent pilgrimages seldom acquire holiness by so doing.

Do not rely on friends and neighbours, and do not delay the salvation of your soul to some future date, for men will forget you sooner than you think. It is better to make timely provision and to acquire merit in this life, than to depend on the help of others. And if you have no care for your own soul, who will have care for you in time to come? The present time is most precious; now is the accepted time, now is the day of salvation. (2 Corinthians 6:2) It is sad that you do not employ your time better, when you may win eternal life hereafter. The time will come when you will long for one day or one hour in which to amend; and who knows whether it will be granted?

Dear soul, from what peril and fear you could free yourself, if you lived in holy fear, mindful of your death. Apply yourself so to live now, that at the hour of death, you may be glad and unafraid. Learn now to die to the world, that you may begin to live with Christ. (Romans 6:8) Learn now to despise ail earthly things, that you may go freely to Christ. Discipline your body now by penance, that you may enjoy a sure hope of salvation.

Foolish man, how can you promise yourself a long life, when you are not certain of a single day? (Luke 12:20) How many have deceived themselves in this way, and been snatched unexpectedly from life! You have often heard how this man was slain by the sword; another drowned; how another fell from a high place and broke his neck; how another died at table how another met his end in play. One perishes by fire, another by the sword, another from disease, another at the hands of robbers. Death is the end of all men (Ecclesiasticus 7:2) and the life of man passes away suddenly as a shadow.(Psalm 38:7; 143:4)

Who will remember you when you are dead? Who will pray for you? Act now, dear soul; do all you can; for you know neither the hour of your death, nor your state after death. While you have time, gather the riches of everlasting life. (Luke 12:33; Galatians 6:8) Think only of your salvation, and care only for the things of God. Make friends now, by honouring the Saints of God and by following their example, that when this life is over, they may welcome you to your eternal home.(Luke 16:9)

Keep yourself a stranger and pilgrim upon earth, (I Peter 2:11), to whom the affairs of this world are of no concern. Keep your heart free and lifted up to God, for here you have no abiding city.(Hebrews13:14) Daily direct your prayers and longings to Heaven, that at your death your soul may merit to pass joyfully into the presence of God.

Lent 2014: Penance and Mortification

Below is a list of Penances and Mortifications for this coming Lent. Remember that we are to do Penance from Monday to Saturday and relax on Sunday, since Sunday is never a day of Penance. I have included a few select verses from Sacred Scripture to prove the necessity of Penance and to motivate each of my followers to do better this year.

Sacred Scripture

In the sweat of thy face shalt thou eat bread till thou return to the earth, out of which thou wast taken: for dust thou art, and into dust thou shalt return. - Genesis 3:19 (DRA)

Bring forth therefore fruit worthy of penance. - St. Matthew 3:8

I came not to call the just, but sinners to penance. - St. Luke 5:32

But unless you shall do penance, you shall all likewise perish. - St. Luke 13:3

I say to you, that even so there shall be joy in heaven upon one sinner that doth penance, more than upon ninety-nine just who need not penance. - St. Luke 15:7

But Peter said to them: Do penance, and be baptized every one of you in the name of Jesus Christ, for the remission of your sins: and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. - Acts 2:38

For the sorrow that is according to God worketh penance, steadfast unto salvation… - 2nd Corinthians 7:10

Such as I love, I rebuke and chastise. Be zealous therefore, and do penance. - Apocalypse 3:19 

Penances and Mortification of the Senses

Sight:

  • Avoid all DVD’s/BlueRays, theaters, plays, T.V. and Netflix for a week.
  • Divert your eyes from impure magazines at the check out line.
  • Divert your eyes from attractive people passing by or mirrors if you have a problem with vanity.
  • Read books without pictures or read a book that has a blank cover.

Hearing:

  • Avoid all music for a week.
  • Listen only to Lenten Gregorian Chant for all of Lent.
  • Feel compassion for the screaming child rather than getting angry or annoyed.
  • Listen to a boring story like your life depended on it.
  • Listen to criticism without complaining afterwards.

Taste:

  • Avoid salt or other spices for a week or all of Lent.
  • Avoid your most favorite food or drinks for all of Lent.
  • Eat and drink your least favorite foods and drinks.
  • Overcook your foods (NEVER undercook).
  • Take less of what you like and more of what you dislike during meals.
  • Eat hot foods cold (like cold french-fries).
  • Meatless Wednesdays.

Touch:

  • Do the dishes either in cold water or really hot water (just short of scolding hot water, of course).
  • Take cold showers.
  • Sleep on the floor.
  • Wear a rubber band on your arm. If you commit a venial sin snap your skin with the rubber band.

Smell:

  • Do your own smelly laundry for a change.

Mind:

  • Read a textbook in your least favorite school subject.
  • Read unabridged versions of Classical literature.
  • Daily examination of Conscience.
  • Avoid swearing in your thoughts.

Crisis

  • Read The Catechism of the Crisis, or any book concerning the crisis in the Church, and offer an extra prayer or fast in reparation for the countless of abuses and heresies that plague Holy Mother Church today.
  • Add the intention to your daily Holy Rosary for the Pope, with all the Bishops in union with him, to Consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
  • Do an act of penance for the poor Novus Ordo clergy.
  • Offer an extra prayer for the end of False Ecumenism, Collegiality and false Religious Liberty.
  • Go out of your way to attend a TLM rather than a Novus Ordo mass, even if it may cost a great deal in gas money.
  • Fast for a day during Lent for the conversion of Pope Francis to Catholic Tradition, or rather to the Catholic faith in general!   

Good Lenten Prayers and Practices

  • The Way of the Cross (Traditional)
  • Watch and pray, watch and pray /15 Decades every day!" - Bishop Williamson
  • Divine Office
  • Follow the pre-Vatican II Fast and Abstinence rules.
  • Daily examination of Conscience.
  • Chaplet of St. Michael the Archangel
  • Holy Hour of Reparation on Fridays

DON’T!!!

  • Beat yourself to a bloody pulp (although you can donate your blood).
  • Throw yourself into thorn bushes.
  • Wander out into the hot desert and become a raggedy hermit.
  • Give up!

When we go to confession, for example, it isn’t that we say our sin and God forgives us. No, not that! We look for Jesus Christ and say: ‘This is your sin, and I will sin again’. And Jesus likes that, because it was his mission: to become the sinner for us, to liberate us.

Pope Francis

This has to be a heresy, or at the very least a grave error concerning Confession, the forgiveness of sins and the mission of Our Lord. Nowhere is this taught in any traditional catechism or by the Church Fathers or in Sacred Scripture. Jesus Christ took on our sins, yes, but it is impossible to say that he became a sinner. I am still the sinner. What is this Pope reading? Somebody take away his books and burn them and then take away his mic and break it so he can’t lead anymore souls astray!!!

O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended Thee, and I detest all my sins, because I dread the loss of Heaven, and the pains of Hell; but most of all because I love Thee, my God, Who art all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of Thy grace, to confess my sins, to do penance,and to amend my life. Amen. - Traditional Act of Contrition

23 Q. How many conditions are necessary to make a good confession?

A. To make a good confession five things are necessary: (1) Examination of conscience; (2) Sorrow for having offended God; (3) A resolution of sinning no more; (4) Confession of our sins; (5) Satisfaction or penance. - Catechism of St. Pius X.

casuistry is precisely the place to which all those people go who believe they have faith, but instead reflexively rattle off precepts. When we find a Christian [who asks] if it is licit to do this and if the church could do that…[either] they do not have faith, or it is too weak…Those who fall into casuistry or those that fall into the trap of ideologies are Christians who know the doctrine, but without faith, like demons.

- Pope Francis

Ya know…because those who are caught up in Casuistry keeps accusing the Conciliar Popes of doing illicit and immoral things (like kissing the Koran, calling for the NWO or entertaining the thought that Mary may have accused God of lying). I guess they are tired of having their hearts pricked by truth. But I wouldn’t expect this Pope to care since he found Fundamental Theology “boring”…God only knows what other classes he fell asleep in!  

This line of thinking lines up exactly with his “who am I to judge” and “don’t make such a big deal out of abortion or gay marriage” statements.

And of course I have no doubt that he has your typical Traditionalist in mind. To him we are the “hard heads”, “integrists”, “restorationists”, “ideologues”, “Neo-Pelagians”and now “demons”!  And all because we cling to a mere “fashion!”

Lastly, St. Alphonus Maria de Ligouri, one of my favorite saints, is consider to have restored Casuistry to its former importance and dignity and that is one of the many reasons why he is a Doctor of the Church. I guess Pope Francis doesn’t think he had the faith, or at least a weak faith!

When I search more thoroughly I find that it is rather a kind of fashion. And if it is a fashion, therefore it is a matter that does not need that much attention. It is just necessary to show some patience and kindness to people who are addicted to a certain fashion.

Archbishop Jan Graubner (Czech Republic) quoting Pope Francis

The Holy Father once again shows that he is no true fan of the Traditional Latin Mass. Its only a fashion to him. Only a passing fad, an addiction to the past. We Neo-Pelagians who are intransigently “addicted” to the TLM only need to be shown “some patience and kindness” and eventually we all will abandon it once it become unfashionable.

Whatta bunch of “hard heads” we are!

And what a horror this Pope is.

A dilemma: canonizing Pope John Paul II - District of the USA

Another good article on why John Paul II should not be canonized (and if he is it will certainly be a false canonization). If he is truly a saint then all of the other saints before him, such as Sts. Peter Mavimenus, Edmund Campion,  Fidelis of Sigmaringen and Pedro de Arbues, are not! 

He cannot possibly be a saint no matter what Pope Francis says or does.

katybliss said: The Magisterium is infallible. I believe that Pope Francis has God’s guidance in the canonization.

The Magisterium is infallible under certain and very rare circumstances. There is the Extraordinary Magisterium of the Pope, which is the rare occasion when he speaks ex cathedra on matters of faith and morals, and the Ordinary Magisterium of the Church, which is the universal teaching of all the bishops and popes throughout time and space on matters of faith and morals. Canonizations, however, are not defined as an infallible decree, though, it comes close. The old process was so strict and thorough that we were 99.99999999999% sure that he or she was indeed a saint. Pope John Paul II did away with the vast majority of the regulations in his 1983 Code of Canon Law and further watered down the few remaining rules, such as the number of miracles from 3 to 1.

To help, I will illustrate this for you. To be honest, I am more sure of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary (an ex cathedra dogma) than I am sure of the eternal reward of Pope St. Peter himself. Now, I would be a damned fool if I refused to believe that St. Peter was not in Heaven right now. Countless of miracles attest to it and he has been considered a saint for 2000 years (i.e., its an immemorial custom and no pope can ever change it). But I would be equally a fool if I attributed papal infallibility to his sainthood when the Church has never said that canonizations of any type are, in fact, infallible decrees! 

So, the pope, especially a bad one who wishes to secure harmful, if not heretical, ideas in the Church, can canonize a bad person. Just because he is the Pope does not sudden make all the bad disappear or become good. The process to ensure moral certainty was not followed at all with any of the lives of the Conciliar popes. Now one can be canonized without a single miracle. This alone, not including the fact that John XIII, Paul VI and John Paul II were very bad examples and this can be proven objectively time and time again, destroys any certainty we might wish to have of their sainthood.

So if John Paul II is canonized then does that mean kissing the Koran, for any reason, is a good and moral act? Or how about his Universalism? Is that now Catholic teaching? No. Never! Unless we know he confessed and repented of these things and more, which we don’t know at all, then I must assume he never did and thus died a material heretic and is not in Heaven.

The pope can err even in canonizations. He may have good intentions but that does not make up for anything that may be bad. Or a good Pope can attempt to canonize a real saint but push the saint through the pipeline so quickly that it ruins the certainty and thus he would and could err. Even the quick canonizations were still rigorously tested by the Vatican, such as St. Thomas Aquinas’ canonization. 

There is much more to be said about the topic and it touches on very difficult things, way above my pay grade. However, I think this rabble is good enough for you to see that you have erred. Pope Francis will decree JPII a saint but he will be wrong. It will be a false canonization.
