A Queer Thing Happened

 Since 2004, no less than eleven Vatican II dioceses have filed for bankruptcy due to the rampant sodomite/pedophiles in their ranks. The problem is not (and never was) celibacy, but homosexuality. According to researcher Muir ("Homosexuality and the 10% Fallacy" The Wall Street Journal, 3/31/93), research from several countries places homosexual men at about 1% to  3% of the population. That's a 2% average, yet they commit an incredibly disproportionate 20% to 40% of child molestation. According to the Family Research Institute, "If 2% of the population is responsible for 20% to 40% of something as socially and personally troubling as child molestation, something must be desperately wrong with that 2%. Not every homosexual is a child molester. But enough gays do molest children so that the risk of a homosexual molesting a child is 10 to 20 times greater than that of a heterosexual."

 How did the so-called "Gay Mafia" take root in the Vatican? The short answer: Giovanni Montini ("Pope" Paul VI) was an apostate and a raging sodomite. The evidence is as great as it is disturbing.

  • Openly sodomite Irish writer, Robin Bryans, claimed in his 1992 autobiography The Dust Never Settles,that his personal friend (one Hugh Montgomery) told him that he and Montini had been "gay lovers" since his appointment as a diplomat at the Vatican
  • French writer and ambassador Roger Peyrefitte (also a sodomite) stated that while Archbishop of Milan, Montini would go to a secluded house for the purpose of "hooking up" with homosexual men
  • Montini decried "slanderous allegations made against me," but never once mention what they were, nor did he even attempt to defend himself.
  • Fr. Georges de Nantes, one of the first Traditionalist priests openly denounced Montini for his alleged homosexuality, even bringing it to the attention of "Pope" John Paul II so as to prevent his "beatification" and "canonization"
  • According to the New York Times, the Italian actor Paolo Carlini was a frequent visitor of Paul VI and was alleged to be his lover
The "Lavender-ing" of America
Paul VI began to promote notorious sodomites in positions of authority. He single-handedly corrupted the hierarchy across the world. In his book, Goodbye Good Men, by Michael S. Rose, the author relates how any man in America wanting to become a Vatican II "priest," and who is not open to homosexuality, is either not accepted or kicked out of the seminaries. The seminaries that are still open have become breeding grounds of unnatural vice. My spiritual father, Fr. Gommar A.DePauw, told me how he was in charge of admissions to the Archdiocesan seminary (Mount St Mary) in Baltimore prior to Vatican II (where he also taught Canon Law and Moral Theology). He related how he rejected large numbers of applicants based on his doubts concerning their sexual orientation. After the good archbishop died in 1961 (Archbishop Francis Keough), he was replaced--on orders from Roncalli--by "gay friendly" Bp. (later "Cardinal") Lawrence Sheehan, who was also a Modernist. Sheehan's first order of business was to remove Fr. DePauw from his position as Dean of Admissions and replace him with a newly ordained priest who was both "compassionate" towards homosexuals, and not as "rigid" on dogma. Need I tell you the result?

 Here are but a few examples of the sodomites given high places in America by Paul VI. 

  1. Archbishop Rembert Weakland
A friend of Montini since at least 1956, Paul VI appointed this Benedictine as a consultant to the Commission on the Sacred Liturgy of Vatican II. In 1977, he was "consecrated" as "Abp." of Milwaukee. In 1980 Weakland created and financed the "Milwaukee AIDS Project," which not only distributed condoms for sodomites, but promoted masturbation, sadomasochism, and "gay masses." One month after turning 75 in 2002, it was revealed he had given (read: "stolen") over $400,000 to pay off a former "gay lover." Now at age 88, he has not paid for his crime, nor has he suffered any penalties from the Vatican II sect.

     2. Cardinal John Wright
 A sodomite/pederast, Bill Burnett came forward to accuse Wright formally. Wright had been known to have a predilection for boys going back to his days as a priest in Boston. Burnett's uncle (Fr. Raymond Page) would take Burnett out to a holiday home in Massachusetts, where Wright would come and sodomize the boy with help from Page. Wright gave the young Burnett $20 for each time he ravaged him.  At Vatican II, Wright was a strong advocate for the Modernists, especially concerning ecumenism and religious freedom.

     3. Howard Hubbard
Made "bishop" of Albany, NY in 1977, Hubbard advocated for "priestesses," gave "communion" to pro-sodomite, pro-abotion Gov. Andrew Cuomo who lives in open adultery. Hubbard told the New York Times that he would always give "communion" to Cuomo because it's a "private matter." (A public figure who openly flaunts Church teaching is a grave scandal and communion--thank God it's not valid---must be denied).  He was a strong supporter of the sodomite group "Dignity," and was besieged with allegations of male lovers within and without the clergy. He had been complicit in numerous cases of sex abuse cover-ups and was accused of paying a 16 year old boy for sex.  

"Blessed" Paul VI (or as my friend at the wonderful website calls him, Paul the Sick) was made the object of veneration by Frankie. And why shouldn't he do so? Montini had no Faith or Morals, just like the rest of the Vatican II wrecking crew. He's a perfect example of why the Vatican II sect is not, and never was, the Roman Catholic Church--and why they will never be "straightened" out.

The Pot Calls The Kettle Black

This week, "Who am I to judge" Bergoglio (aka "Pope" Francis), told U.S. Republican Presidential hopeful Donald Trump that he "wasn't Christian." That's a pretty serious judgement. Why isn't Trump Christian? Could it be that he used to support abortion on demand, including partial-birth abortion, and perhaps his claim of becoming pro-life is false? No. Here is what the "pope" said, "A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian." Ah ha! He's not Christian because he wants to keep out immigrants, especially Mohammedans!

 Is Bergoglio Christian? We know he can't be pope, but does he qualify for "least common denominator" Christianity--What C.S. Lewis called "Mere Christianity"? Well here's a compilation of just some  of what he's done since his false pontificate began in March 2013:

Francis claimed that the miracle of Jesus multiplying the bread and fish was really a miracle of 'sharing', not multiplying; (He) said 'Who am I to judge?' about gay priests; The National Abortion and Reproductive Rights Action League tweeted 'Thank you Pope Francis from pro-choice women everywhere'; (He made the) cover of the leading LGBT magazine, The Advocate; (He) said Atheists Who Do Good Are Redeemed; (He) started taking selfies with fans…

 (He) held the first Muslim/Jewish prayers and Koran readings at the Vatican; (He) sent an iPhone message to evangelicals through prosperity-gospel millionaire and TV preacher Kenneth Copeland; Peace doves attacked (him); (He) said to 'scold the Lord' and (he also stated) that he would baptize aliens; (He was on the) cover of Rolling Stone; (He) accidentally said 'the F word'; Cardinal Dolan claimed Francis said the 'Catholic Church should not dismiss gay marriage'; (He) mentioned re-thinking celibacy for priests; (The) initial synod document suggested a shift in the Church's position on homosexuality, but was revised; (He) compared Islamic terrorists to Christian fundamentalists…

(He) claimed lost souls do not go to Hell and joked about the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ; (He) claimed that Jesus begged his parents for forgiveness and the Virgin Mary 'reproached' Christ; (He) became PETA's Man of the Year; (He) met with a transgender dubbed 'The Devil's Daughter'; (He) left Lutherans wondering if they can now take "Communion" in the Catholic Church; (He) routinely scolded and mocked 'rigid' Catholics; (He) projected images of animals and humanity onto Saint Peter's for climate change support on the Feast day of the Immaculate Conception…(See

 But at least he didn't "build walls"! On February 13, 2016, this country lost the closest person to a real Catholic we will probably ever see in government; Associate Justice Antonin Scalia died just about a month before turning 80 years old. (I had the great fortune of studying Constitutional Law under this brilliant jurist for a short time while in law school). Justice Scalia was a reliable vote for traditional values and constitutional principles. He certainly was not shy about excoriating those on the High Court who did otherwise with scathing dissents. He was brilliant even in defeat. The Chief Communist of the U.S., who resides at the White House while he picks and chooses which laws to enforce (an impeachable offense), announced Justice Scalia's death while not even properly dressed with a tie, and will not attend his funeral. Vatican II sect "Catholic" VP Joe Biden, (who supports sodomite marriage and the murder of the unborn) will attend instead. Justice Scalia had his own "Supreme Court" of nine children, one of whom is a Vatican II sect "priest." The Justice liked the "Motu Mass" and attended whenever he could. There was not one word of praise for this man from Francis.

  There are two people in particular that should be denounced by the Modernist Vatican, but since that will never happen, I will sound the warning bell.

Hillary Clinton

 Besides being the all-white (Obama is bi-racial, not black) female version of Obama, there's another reason (as if any more were really necessary) to keep her out of power. We all know she supports sodomites and child murder. According to Bob Woodward's 1996 book The Choice, First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton held seance-like conversations with "Eleanor Roosevelt" and "Mahatma Gandhi" as a "therapeutic release." She refused to speak with "Jesus Christ" because it would be "too personal." The book portrays Ms. Jean Houston, co-director of the (New Age) Foundation for Mind Research, as the so-called medium who led Clinton into these altered states. Houston urged Mrs. Clinton to write her book, It Takes a Village and Other Lessons Children Teach Us, and in the process "virtually moved into the White House" for days at a time to help with revisions, according to the Chicago Sun Times.

 The now 78 year old Houston denies there was any attempt to communicate with the dead. She ran a New Age Mystery School of which she said, "The traditional question of all Mystery Schools is - How do you place the local self, your local historical self, in the service of the Self? How do you place it in the psyche where the Immanent God resides? How do you respond to the Lure of Becoming and keep up sufficient energy, passion, momentum, delight, engagement, fascination, that you agree to be constantly lured? Unfortunately the stuff of everyday life often inhibits the Lure."  Typical gobbledygook of the New Age--"god" lies within.  She used LSD and hypnosis for these "mind-expanding sessions" with the dead, but further denies they were used on Clinton, or that they were true seances. However, according to

"...on a spring day in 1995, according to an account published by Bob Woodward, the Washington investigative journalist of Watergate fame, Clinton ‘communed’ with Eleanor Roosevelt in the White House solarium. Jean Houston, an author with something of the New Age about her, was visiting the First Lady at the White House, and proposed, Woodward writes, that Clinton "search further and dig deeper for her connections to Mrs. Roosevelt." Clinton closed her eyes, and spoke to Roosevelt—and then she spoke as if she were Roosevelt herself." (Emphasis mine--see

 New Agers are known to believe in both reincarnation and contacting the "spirit world." Clinton was speaking as if she were possessed by "Eleanor Roosevelt" --this is classic demonic possession. What does God say about such things?

Deuteronomy 18:10, " There shall not be found among you anyone who burns his son or his daughter as an offering, anyone who practices divination or tells fortunes or interprets omens, or is a sorcerer"

Leviticus 19:31, "Give no regard to mediums and familiar spirits; do not seek after them, to be defiled by them: I am the LORD your God."

The Constitution (Heavily influenced by Freemasonry) does not require a religious test for office, but we can certainly refuse to support one who allows demonic forces to take her over.

Bernie Sanders
 A Jew born in Brooklyn, Sanders moved to Vermont, and was elected the first openly Socialist member of the House of Representatives in 1990. He got elected the first Socialist to the U.S. Senate in 2006. Although refusing to associate with either Republicans or Democrats, Sanders always caucused with the Democrats and is now running against Clinton for the Democratic nomination for U.S. President. 

 According to the Washington Post, there is plenty of evidence that he would be the first atheist President:
"I am not actively involved with organized religion."

"I think everyone believes in God in their own ways. To me, it means that all of us are connected, all of life is connected, and that we are all tied together."

"I am motivated by a vision which exists in all of the great religions — in Christianity, in Judaism, in Islam, Buddhism and other religions — and which is so beautifully and clearly stated in Matthew 7:12," Sanders said. "And it states: ‘So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the law and the prophets.’ "


"Larry Sanders sums up his brother’s views this way: "He is quite substantially not religious."

In October 2015, Sanders appeared on the Jimmy Kimmel Show. Jimmy Kimmel says "A moment ago you said God forbid, you say you're culturally Jewish, do you believe in God?" Sanders instantly says, "No" while Kimmel is mid-sentence. 

What does the Church have to say about atheism and socialism? (Clinton is a Socialist too, Sanders is just more honest in that respect).

"No one can be, at the same time, a sincere Catholic and a true socialist."
-Pope Pius XI, Quadragesimo Anno 

Infallible canons from the Vatican Council (1870):

1. If anyone shall deny One true God, Creator and Lord of things visible and invisible; let him be anathema.

2. If anyone shall not be ashamed to affirm that, except matter, nothing exists; let him be anathema.

3. If anyone shall say that the substance and essence of God and of all things is one and the same; let him be anathema.

4. If anyone shall say that finite things, both corporeal and spiritual, or at least spiritual, have emanated from the Divine substance; or that the Divine essence, by the manifestation and evolution of itself, becomes all things; or, lastly, that God is a universal or indefinite being, which by determining itself constitutes the universality of things, distinct according to genera, species and individuals; let him be anathema.

5. If anyone does not confess that the world, and all things that are contained in it, both spiritual and material, have been, in their whole substance, produced by God out of nothing; or shall say that God created, not by His will, free from all necessity, but by a necessity equal to the necessity whereby He loves Himself; or shall deny that the world was made for the glory of God; let him be anathema.

Summary and Conclusion
  • Francis is an apostate and has no business declaring others "not Christian."
  • In reference to sodomites he has said "Who am I to judge?" yet has no problem judging when it suits his nefarious purposes.
  • Francis has given no praise for the only man who approaches real Catholicism and argued forcefully for traditional values--Associate Justice Antonin Scalia.
  • Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders should be condemned for many and serious reasons.
  • Both are enthusiastic supporters of abortion on demand and sodomite "rights"
  • Both are Socialists, one won't admit the title, the other is open about it.
  • Clinton has been involved with practices in the New Age which include channeling demonic forces
  • Sanders is not open about his atheism, mostly trying to hide it behind flowery language about the "good that lies in all religions"--indifferentism that unfortunately appeals to many after Vatican II.
  • None of this will be condemned by Francis and his Modernist Vatican II sect.

  I heard Sanders speak about about how government must not interfere with a woman's right to kill her unborn child. This man wants the government to control everything, except abortion, which is "keeping government out of the bedroom." Ostensibly, if we legalize cannibalism we'd be "keeping government out of the kitchen." The Masonic "separation of Church and State" would like us to believe that a person's religion (or the lack thereof) should play no part in our decision as to whom we elect. The Church says differently. In memory of Justice Scalia, I cite to the prophetic U.S. Supreme Court case of Church of the Holy Trinity v. U.S. 143 U.S. 457 (1892):

"The happiness of a people and the good order and preservation of civil government essentially depend upon piety, religion and morality...Religion, morality, and knowledge (are) necessary to good government, the preservation of liberty, and the happiness of mankind."

 And the religion we need is the One True Church of Jesus Christ.

Damned By Mercy

 The apostate Jorge Bergoglio ("Pope Francis") launched his "Year of Mercy" on December 8, 2015 (feast of the Immaculate Conception) and it will end November 20, 2016 (the Vatican II sect's feast of Christ the King). The layman claiming title as "pope" has given "jurisdiction" to the priests of the pseudo-Traditionalist Society of St. Pius X (SSPX) to hear Confessions. This man is leading millions to Hell by a false concept of "mercy" that prevents true sorrow for sin, and would invalidate the Sacrament of Penance, even when a valid priest can be had.

 It's very difficult  to invalidate Penance with a true priest. Surely, the priests of the SSPX are properly trained and validly ordained (at least those who are trained from within the ranks--not the "priests" of the Vatican II sect who are accepted by them without re-ordination in the Traditional Rite). How can such confessions be invalid? Moreover, since the SSPX accepts Frankie as "pope," could their own members be subject to invalid Confession? Perhaps. Let Catholic theology explain why.

Catholic Theology on Penance

 According to all pre-Vatican II theologians (Jone, Prummer, McHugh and Callan, etc.), three acts are necessary on the part of the penitent for every valid Confession: Contrition, Confession, and Satisfaction

1. Contrition, as defined by the Holy and Ecumenical Council of Trent is "...a profound sorrow and detestation for sin committed, and with a resolution of sinning no more." It includes the purpose of confessing and making satisfaction for one's sins." Natural remorse based on shame is insufficient, because the Sacrament of Penance is of the supernatural order. Attrition, also known as "imperfect contrition" suffices for a valid Confession. Unlike contrition, which can forgive sins even outside the Sacrament of Penance when accompanied by desire for the sacrament, attrition is motivated by the supernatural fear of Hell and is only efficacious within the Sacrament itself.

 Furthermore, contrition or attrition must be true (not pretended), supernatural (i.e. inspired by Grace and motivated by some consideration known by the light of Faith), supreme (i.e., an intellectual conviction that sin is the greatest of all evil), and universal (i.e., it extends at least to all mortal sins). You must have the purpose to amend your life. This resolve must be firm at the time of Confession; it must include the intent to avoid the occasion of sin and to safeguard against it through prayer--and it must be intended to avoid all mortal sin.

2. Confession is the act of telling all known sins to a valid priest.

3. Satisfaction is an act of virtue to appease Divine Justice. We can never make quantitative satisfaction, because God's friendship is of infinite value, and we are finite. We can, and must, make proportionate satisfaction through the Grace of Christ by freely doing penance for sin, by bearing patiently any/all temporal punishment sent by God, and by doing the penance imposed by the priest.

Modernist (Vatican II) Theology
 Penance was destroyed by Montini ("Pope" Paul VI) in the document Reconciliationem inter Deum et Homines (hereinafter "RDH"). It was promulgated on December 2, 1973, and changed the name of the sacrament to "Reconciliation." This changes the way the penitent views his sins.  

1. Sin is not mortal, but grave

 The term grave is also found in the reformed Vatican II Code of Canon Law (1983). A mortal wound is one that kills. A grave wound, not necessarily so. Hence, mortal sin kills the Divine Grace in our souls. Does "grave" sin do so? Why the change in nomenclature? The line between mortal and venial sin has been blurred. RDH declares that "...the ultimate purpose of penance is that we should love God deeply and commit ourselves completely to Him." This is a seriously defective concept of Penance. Is support of abortion a grave sin? Apparently not, if the Vatican II sect gives its invalid communion cracker to the likes of Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi. What about living in open adultery and pushing sodomite marriage into law; are those grave sins? Ask the "priests" who give the invalid cracker to NYS Governor Andrew Cuomo.

2. Act of Contrition is Altered

It now reads:"My God, I am sorry for my sins with all my heart. In choosing to do wrong and failing to do good, I have sinned against you (lower case for God in original) whom I should love above all things. I firmly intend, with your help, to do penance, to sin no more, and to avoid whatever leads me to sin. Our Savior Jesus Christ suffered and died for us. In his name, my God, have mercy. Amen."

What's wrong with it?
  • no mention of Heaven
  • no mention of Hell
  • no mention of reward for the just
  • no mention of punishment, eternal or temporal, for sin
  • no mention for the indispensable need to make satisfaction for sin
3. Sin Denied In Practice
 Frankie and his evil clerics teach that Hell doesn't exist (or if it does, hardly anyone goes there).  They give "communion" to anyone--recently to Protestants! Most people under 60 don't even know about the "Sin of Presumption," i.e., presuming on the Mercy of God to save you from Hell despite leading a sinful life and without the need to repent. A penitent under Modernist notions may not have the three necessary acts for a valid absolution---even with a valid priest using the correct form with the proper intention. 

 Frankie's "Year of Mercy" is only a disguised "Year of Accelerated Damnation" for the unwary as he shoves false, Modernist notions of "mercy" and "reconciliation"  down their throats. The "recognize and resisters" of the SSPX tell their congregants that Bergoglio is "pope." So who can blame them if they begin to absorb his poison, despite their pleas to "resist"? Are you listening Bp. Fellay? John Salza? Robert Siscoe? Probably not. Remember, my dear readers to "work out thy own salvation in fear and trembling" (Phil. 2:12). As a wise man once said, "If the mercy of God kept all out of Hell because no one deserves eternal punishment, wouldn't the justice of God keep everyone out of Heaven because no one is worthy of eternal bliss with God?"

Spiritual Ecumenism

 An early Lent and Easter await us this year in 2016. Inevitably, talk of Holy Week arises with those Traditionalists that use the pre-1955 rites, and those that use the changes of Pope Pius XII. I certainly believe that the pre-1955 rites are better, but do not condemn those that utilize the changes with the realization that they paved the way for the Novus Bogus. The changes were not evil per se, only in what was to come. That being said, one of the changes post-1954 was "The Prayer for the Conversion of Heretics" on Good Friday becoming the "Prayer for Church Unity." Nothing heretical, but the change signaled something sinister in the works.

 First, there is an aversion to the use of the terms heresy and heretic. The idea of condemnation for wrong beliefs seems "antiquated," "medieval," (always used pejoratively), and "lacking charity." To warn someone they hold a false belief and urge them to repent before they are damned is the height of Charity, properly understood. Second, the old prayer title made it clear that heretics had to convert and return to the unity in Truth which resides exclusively within the One True Church of Christ. The post-1954 title talks of Church Unity. This could (and must) be accomplished that same way. However, it does not, boldly and unequivocally, state that unity comes about this way. It opens the door to "spiritual ecumenism."

  We can trace the roots of this back to the completely orthodox Octave of Christian Unity started in 1908. The initiative, begun by Fr. Paul Wattson (a convert from Anglicanism), was blessed by Pope St. Pius X. Fr. Wattson conceived of the week beginning on the Feast of the "Confession of Peter," the Protestant deformation of the ancient Feast of the Chair of Saint Peter, on 18 January, and concluding with the Feast of the Conversion of Saint Paul on 25 January. Pope St. Pius X's successor, Pope Benedict XV, encouraged its observance throughout the Church. For a time, Fr. Wattson, called it the Chair of Unity Octave, to show there is no unity outside the See of Peter.

Things took a bad turn with the advent of Fr. Paul Couturier (1881-1953). Ordained in 1906, Couturier was a disciple of heretic Teilhard de Chardin, and believed in the unity of all through "Christ" regardless of beliefs! Couturier advocated prayer "for the unity of the Church as Christ wills it, and in accordance with the means He wills"--apparently thinking that Christ somehow wills "unity" with those having "differing views of the Petrine ministry" (i.e., heretics). He changed the name of the Octave in 1934, to the "Universal Week of Prayer for Christian Unity." Unity no longer means conversion of those outside the Church. It means the sin of praying communicatio in sacris---prayer/worship with heretics, for the purpose of watering down Catholicism to a form of  a non-dogmatic one-world sect. This is the very goal of Modernism.

 Couturier maintained close ties not only with heretics but with Jews, Mohammedans, and Hindus. He founded the Dombes Group, comprised of 20 Modernist and 20 Protestant theologians, whose task was to form a "spiritual ecumenism," which included prayer in common, a "call to conversion" for the sects and the Church with each other (as if the spotless Bride of Christ needs conversion!), and discussion of theological topics. The group had a five-fold approach: a topic

2. review the Scriptural and historical development

3.  identification of the areas of agreement and disagreement

4. suggestions for convergence

5. a call to conversion for each church (sic) in the areas of attitudes, teachings, and practices.

In other words, conversion was replaced by mutual absorption into something else.

 In 1966, two years after the Great Apostasy, the Vatican II sect changed the name of the Octave to that of  "Universal Week of Prayer for Christian Unity." It collaborated with the Masonic World Council of Churches in composing prayers via the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity in 1968. 
In 2008, His Wickedness, "Cardinal" Walter Kasper (tied with Frankie as the biggest apostate in Modernist Rome) had this to say of Couturier:

 While (Fr.) Wattson maintained that the goal of unity was the return to the Catholic Church, Abbé Paul Couturier of Lyons (1881–1953) gave a new impetus to this Week in the 1930s, ecumenical in the true sense of the word. He changed the name "Church Unity Octave" to "Universal Week of Prayer for Christian Unity", thus furthering a unity of the Church that "Christ wills by the means he wills". 


Couturier is another protected pre-Vatican II Modernist who, ever so slowly and carefully, began changing doctrine by changing verbiage. There is power in words. A simple change can have serious implications. Now consider the mutually contradictory authoritative declarations below, and ask the "recognize and resist" pseudo-Traditionalists, how can they both be from the same Church?

Vatican II, Unitatis Redintegratio #8:
In certain special circumstances, such as the prescribed prayers "for unity," and during ecumenical gatherings, it is allowable, indeed desirable that Catholics should join in prayer with their separated brethren. Such prayers in common are certainly an effective means of obtaining the grace of unity, and they are a true expression of the ties which still bind Catholics to their separated brethren. "For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them"

Pope Pius XI, Mortialum Animos #10:
So, Venerable Brethren, it is clear why this Apostolic See has never allowed its subjects to take part in the assemblies of non-Catholics: for the union of Christians can only be promoted by promoting the return to the one true Church of Christ of those who are separated from it, for in the past they have unhappily left it. 

 Clearly, the latter is Catholic, and the former is not. Let us NOT pray with heretics, but for them. Especially pray during this upcoming Holy Week for those under the delusion that the Vatican II sect is the "Catholic Church," that they may be converted. "This is the doctrine of Catholic Truth from which no one can deviate and keep his Faith and salvation." (First Vatican Council, 1870).

The (Evil) Spirit Of The (New) Liturgy

 Sophia Institute Press, founded in 1987, dedicates itself to the publication and distribution of "faithful Catholic classics" in books. Recently, I was at a book sale held by a Traditionalist Chapel. To my surprise, books by Fr. Romano Guardini (e.g., The Spirit of the Liturgy)  were more popular than I had imagined. What many people probably don't realize is that this priest was another Modernist "snake in the grass," paving the way to the Great Apostasy of Vatican II. I hope this post will alert my readers to who Guardini really was, and expose the false idea he was a "traditional priest."

Born in 1885, Romano Guardini was ordained a priest in 1910. He received his doctorate in theology in 1915 with his dissertation on St. Bonaventure. In 1945, he was a professor of philosophy at the University of Tubingen, where his emphasis on personalism had him suspect of heresy by the Holy Office under Cardinal Ottaviani. He had a huge impact in both his teachings and who he influenced (Ratzinger, Montini, etc) that would bear its evil fruit at Vatican II. He died in 1968.

 Guardini The Modernist
  • He embraced the phenomenologist philosopher Max Scheler, a man who wrote that humanity should reject the "prejudices" of philosophy, religion, and science; Christianity must be studied and deconstructed in order for man to be free. Phenomenology attempts to base human knowledge on the "phenomena," i.e., what appears to the human mind, rather than on an exploration of  external reality.  Whether a thing truly exists or not is unimportant to a phenomenologist; only what he cogitates exists for him. You can't prove the existence of God because you can never know things-in-themselves, only things-as-they appear. Moreover, phenomenology describes "meaning" as the combined observations of a multitude of observers, past, present, and future.  Thus, meaning can never be isolated.  This philosophy is one of the Modernist "subjectivist" philosophies, basing itself not on an external reality or standard, but upon one's own personal conceptions.  Thus, it easily leads to moral relativism and dependence upon personal or subjective opinion. 
  • In 1954, Karol Wojtyła, ("Pope" John Paul II), defended his doctoral thesis on "An Evaluation of the Possibility of Constructing a Christian Ethics on the Basis of the System of Max Scheler." Wotyla had previously studied at the Angelicum, where the great anti-Modernist theologian Father Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange, was his mentor. Wojtyla, having rejected the teachings of Aquinas, was following the philosophy that he wanted, that of existentialism (another brand of subjectivist philosophy). Therefore, his dissertation, “Faith according to St. John of the Cross,” was criticized and rejected by Fr. Garrigou Lagrange, because it supported the ideas of the Modernists who claimed that Faith is based on personal experience. It is reported that the great Thomist wrote on Wotyla's dissertation, "Writes much. Says little."
  • Guardini, in turn, strongly influenced Modernists like Hans Urs von Balthasar, Giovanni Montini ("Pope"Paul VI), Karl Rahner and Joseph Ratzinger. 
  • His ideas were part of the Modernist apostasy of Vatican II. Guardini's idea that "liturgy is play in God's presence" came out in the Novus Bogus bread and wine service of 1969. 
  • As early as 1927, Guardini offered Mass "versus populum" (facing the people) and in the vernacular (German). The Modernist bishops of the Rhineland were successful in protecting him.
  • In 1965, Montini ("Pope" Paul VI) offered to make Guardini a "cardinal," but he refused, being already 80 years old.
  • He was the last theologian quoted by Ratzinger as false "Pope" Benedict, and is both admired and oft-quoted by Frankie. Bergoglio actually quoted him eight times in his "encyclical" Laudato Si, on environmentalism.
  • His book, The Spirit of the Liturgy, so inspired Ratzinger, he wrote a book by the same title in 2000.

Proponent of the Contraceptive Mentality
  • Guardini's personalism, led to the idea of unrestricted use of Natural Family Planning (NFP). 
  • Accrording to this erroneous view, the fulfillment and mutual love of the married couple is at least equal to (if not greater than) the begetting of children. 
  • If you can, without serious reason and for a short time, purposefully frustrate the marital act from its primary purpose of having children; how does this differ from artificial contraception except in the means used? 
  • In this way, NFP can be abused as a way to remain childless.
  •  In his famous Address to Midwives on Oct. 29,1951, Pope Pius XII taught: "Now, the truth of the matter is that marriage, as a natural institution and in virtue of the Creator's holy will, has as its primary and most intimate end, not the spouses' personal fulfillment, but the procreation and education of new life. The other goals in marriage, although also designed and intended by nature, are not to be found at the level of the primary end of marriage and, even less, are they to be considered superior to them, but are indeed essentially subordinated to them."(Emphasis mine) The pontiff further explained, "This holds true for each and every marriage, even when barren or infertile; just as in the case of every eye we may affirm that it has been formed and destined for sight, although some unusual cases do sometimes occur where, through some circumstances, either interior or exterior, it happens that an eye may be struck by blindness."
  • Pope Pius XII further rebukes the personalist error in this Address: "...the selfish couple will have recourse to a whole litany of enticing remarks and observations as a foundation to a rosy pipe dream of a married life wherein the spouses wastefully use up a whole wealth of particular natural gifts, qualities and energies which nature, together with God's grace, have so evidently designed and directed toward the continuation and multiplication of human life."
 Fr. Romano Guardini's books remain popular among some Traditionalists. You might want to move them in your library from "Devotional Books" to "Know Thy Enemy."
