Francis And The Dark Side Of The Force


 On Friday, December 15, 2017, the latest installment of the Star Wars movie franchise will premiere. The George Lucas films are riddled with pantheism, whereby "god" and the universe are one. The oft quoted "May the Force be with you," is a blasphemous attempt to replace the True God ("The Lord be with you") with an impersonal energy that binds the universe together. The so-called force may be used to perform seeming miracles such as levitation, moving objects, detecting the presence of various persons, being guided without using your senses, and healing. The force can be used for good or evil ("the dark side of the force").

 Outside of science fiction movies, Jorge Bergoglio (aka "Pope" Francis), has been dabbling with dark forces in real life. According to CBS News:

 He [Bergoglio] believes in alternate medicine. Papal biographer Austen Ivereigh says in 2004, the Pope, then Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio, began treatment with a Taoist monk named Liu Ming.  Regular sessions of massage and acupuncture helped Bergoglio conquer symptoms of diabetes and gallbladder problems. (See http://newyork.cbslocal.com/2015/09/20/pope-francis-five-facts/amp/; Emphasis mine).

Most disturbing, is that Liu Ming is a Reiki practitioner. The fact that Francis believes in, and uses Reiki, exposes his connection to pagan, demonic forces and teachings. I will put forth the facts in this post, and let my readers draw their own conclusions.

What is Reiki?

 Reiki comes from the Japanese words Ki, (which is alleged to be a "universal life-force energy" that everything supposedly possesses) and Rei, which means "higher power."  Reiki claims that everything in the universe is made up of  this "higher power life-force energy" – even humans.  Thus, when someone is feeling depressed, or sick in any way, it is an indication that their energy is "out of balance."  Therefore, it is the function of the Reiki practitioner to "channel positive energy into the person," bringing them back to "balance and wholeness." The founder of this practice is generally considered to be the Buddhist monk, Mikao Usui, who claims he developed mystical power on a pagan retreat. Reiki energy entered his "crown chakra" (i.e., his head), and enabled him to heal people.

According to www.Reiki.org, "Reiki is a Japanese technique for stress reduction and relaxation that also promotes healing. It is administered by "laying on hands" and is based on the idea that an unseen "life force energy" flows through us and is what causes us to be alive. If one's "life force energy" is low, then we are more likely to get sick or feel stress, and if it is high, we are more capable of being happy and healthy."

Here is the pagan mumbo-jumbo: "The source or cause of health comes from the Ki that flows through and around the individual rather than from the functional condition of the physical organs and tissues. It is Ki that animates the physical organs and tissues as it flows through them and therefore is responsible for creating a healthy condition. If the flow of Ki is disrupted, the physical organs and tissues will be adversely affected. Therefore, it is a disruption in the flow of Ki that is the main cause of illness.

An important attribute of Ki is that it responds to ones thoughts and feelings. Ki will flow more strongly or be weakened in its action depending on the quality of ones thoughts and feelings. It is our negative thoughts and feelings that are the main cause of restriction in the flow of Ki. All negative or dis-harmonious thoughts or feelings will cause a disruption in the flow of Ki. Even Western medicine recognizes the role played by the mind in creating illness and some Western doctors state that as much as 98% of illness is caused directly or indirectly by the mind.

It must be understood that the mind exists not only in the brain, but also through-out the body. The nervous system extends to every organ and tissue in the body and so the mind exists here also. It is also known that the mind even extends outside the body in a subtle energy field 2 to 3 feet thick called the aura. Because of this, it is more appropriate to call our mind a mind/body as the mind and body are so closely linked."  (Emphasis mine).

Here's what's wrong with this doctrine:
1. There is no soul as the animating principle of the body, but some impersonal "Ki energy."

2. Ki nevertheless can respond and be manipulated by thoughts and feelings, yet there is no explanation as to how or why this is known/proven.

3. The claim that "some Western doctors" (not even naming one) state "98% of illness is caused directly or indirectly by the mind" is not only completely unsubstantiated, but terms are not even defined. What does it mean that an illness is caused "indirectly by the mind"?

4. It states the existence of some "aura" which is "known" to exist without any citations to a single relevant medical or scientific source.

Liu Ming, now 49 years old, is a Taoist monk. Taoism is another pagan religion. Their beliefs are:

  • Taoism — loosely based on the writings of a mythical figure named Laozi who lived some 2,500 years ago — calls for an adherence to "the way", which practitioners have long interpreted as a return to the natural world. The core of the basic belief and doctrine of Taoism is that "Tao" is the origin and law of all things in the universe. Taoists believes that people can become deities or live forever through practicing certain rituals and austerities
  • Taoists stress the importance of harmonizing with nature by balancing yin and yang, and developing chi through meditation and disengagement. The human body is regarded as a source of chi-derived energy, which some people have the power to concentrate and congeal into an essence. Chi (also spelled ch'i or ki) is variously known as the "breath of heaven," “mystical breath," the "breath of nature" and the "quality of spirit" (See http://factsanddetails.com/china/cat3/sub10/item91.html)

When Bergoglio was suffering from various health problems (diabetes, gall bladder, etc), he turned to this pagan healer and his Reiki "energy-force healing."


 In its October 2013 issue, the Spanish language Argentinean magazine TAO ran a story on the association between Bergoglio and Ming. We learn of some additional facts about Ming and Bergoglio. Ming:

  • Practices divination, which is the art or practice that seeks to foresee or foretell future events or discover hidden knowledge usually by the interpretation of omens or by the aid of supernatural powers
  • Claims Bergoglio will live to be "140 years old"
  • Told Bergoglio there is no difference between the Tao and the God of Catholicism
  • Manipulated Bergoglio's "life-force" (Reiki)
As a result of Ming's "treatments," Bergoglio claimed he was cured, no longer takes medication, and continues to practice what Ming told him. The then "cardinal" from Argentina gave Ming a Spanish copy of the I Ching, a pagan book also known as the "Book of Changes," which is an ancient Chinese divination text.

The Vatican II sect Condemns Reiki

 Proving the old aphorism, "Even a broken clock is right twice each day" true, the Vatican II sect "bishops" condemned the practice of Reiki in 2009, four years before Bergoglio was elected "pope." The document entitled Guidelines for Evaluating Reiki as an Alternative Therapy, has this to say in paragraph #9:

The difference between what Christians recognize as healing by divine grace and Reiki therapy is also evident in the basic terms used by Reiki proponents to describe what happens in Reiki therapy, particularly that of "universal life energy." Neither the Scriptures nor the Christian tradition as a whole speak of the natural world as based on "universal life energy" that is subject to manipulation by the natural human power of thought and will. In fact, this worldview has its origins in eastern religions and has a certain monist and pantheistic character, in that distinctions among self, world, and God tend to fall away. (Emphasis mine)

Their conclusion:
Reiki therapy finds no support either in the findings of natural science or in Christian belief. For a Catholic to believe in Reiki therapy presents insoluble problems...In terms of caring for one's spiritual health, there are important dangers. To use Reiki one would have to accept at least in an implicit way central elements of the worldview that undergirds Reiki theory, elements that belong neither to Christian faith nor to natural science.
Without justification either from Christian faith or natural science, however, a Catholic who puts his or her trust in Reiki would be operating in the realm of superstition, the no-man's-land that is neither faith nor science.Superstition corrupts one's worship of God by turning one's religious feeling and practice in a false direction.(See paragraphs 10 and 11; Emphasis mine. The term "Catholic" is meant to denote a member of the Vatican II sect).

Bergoglio Could Not Have Been Elected Pope

 Siscoe and Salza (among other Vatican II apologists) will go to great lengths to allege private judgement on the part of sedevacantists, and seek to discredit us through guilt by association (e.g. the deeply disturbed cult leader Richard Ibranyi who puts the date of the last pope at 1130 A.D.). Our detractors all miss the point that it is no longer a matter of "loss of papal office." A heretic cannot attain the office in the first place. 

On February 15, 1559, Pope Paul IV, issued the Apostolic Constitution Ex Cum Apostolatus Officio. Here the Supreme Pontiff decrees that a heretic cannot become pope (it was thought one of the Cardinals was a secret Lutheran). It reads in pertinent part--paragraph # 6:

In addition, [by this Our Constitution, which is to remain valid in perpetuity We enact, determine, decree and define:] that if ever at any time it shall appear that any Bishop, even if he be acting as an Archbishop, Patriarch or Primate; or any Cardinal of the aforesaid Roman Church, or, as has already been mentioned, any legate, or even the Roman Pontiff, prior to his promotion or his elevation as Cardinal or Roman Pontiff, has deviated from the Catholic Faith or fallen into some heresy:

(i) the promotion or elevation, even if it shall have been uncontested and by the unanimous assent of all the Cardinals, shall be null, void and worthless;
(ii) it shall not be possible for it to acquire validity (nor for it to be said that it has thus acquired validity) through the acceptance of the office, of consecration, of subsequent authority, nor through possession of administration, nor through the putative enthronement of a Roman Pontiff, or Veneration, or obedience accorded to such by all, nor through the lapse of any period of time in the foregoing situation;

(iii) it shall not be held as partially legitimate in any way;

(iv) to any so promoted to be Bishops, or Archbishops, or Patriarchs, or Primates or elevated as Cardinals, or as Roman Pontiff, no authority shall have been granted, nor shall it be considered to have been so granted either in the spiritual or the temporal domain;

(v) each and all of their words, deeds, actions and enactments, howsoever made, and anything whatsoever to which these may give rise, shall be without force and shall grant no stability whatsoever nor any right to anyone;

(vi) those thus promoted or elevated shall be deprived automatically, and without need for any further declaration, of all dignity, position, honour, title, authority, office and power.(Emphasis mine).

While Bergoglio was "cardinal" he engaged in a practice denounced by the Vatican II "episcopate" in the USA. According--even to them--Bergoglio  "would be operating in the realm of superstition" and "accept at least in an implicit way central elements of the worldview that undergirds Reiki theory, elements that belong neither to Christian faith nor to natural science." Yet Bergoglio credits pagan life-force channeling (Reiki) with giving him health and continues to use/promote it today. According to theologian MacKenzie, "The very commission of any act which signifies heresy, e.g. the statement of some doctrine contrary or contradictory to a revealed and defined dogma, gives sufficient grounds for juridical presumption of heretical depravity."(See The Delict of Heresy, CUA Press, [1932], pg.35).

What dogma does Reiki contradict? From the First Vatican Council (1870), Dogmatic Constitution on the Catholic Faith, Dei Filius states:

The Holy Catholic Apostolic Roman Church believes and confesses that there is one true and living God, Creator and Lord of heaven and earth, Almighty, Eternal, Immense, Incomprehensible, Infinite in intelligence, in will, and in all perfection, who, as being one, sole, absolutely simple and immutable spiritual substance, is to be declared as really and essentially distinct from the world, of supreme beatitude in and from Himself, and ineffably exalted above all things which exist, or are conceivable, except Himself. 

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. 

Can Bergoglio claim ignorance of this truth? Again, according to MacKenzie, "...if the delinquent making this claim [ignorance] be a cleric, his plea for mitigation must be dismissed either as untrue...or at least crass and supine...His ecclesiastical training in the seminary...[will]insure that the Church's attitude toward heresy was imparted to him." (Ibid, pg. 48).

Conclusion
I'll let my readers draw the logical conclusion from this week's post. Could Jorge Bergoglio even have attained the papacy given his involvement with pagan practices that call upon "forces" which contradict the teachings of the Church on the Nature of God? Reiki was condemned even by his own sect's bishops conference in the USA! This is yet another nail in the coffin for those who want to "recognize and resist" Francis. Our Lord said, "Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit, and the evil tree bringeth forth evil fruit." (St. Matthew 7:17). The fruits of Reiki are to entrap one in pagan beliefs and practices. It shouldn't be any wonder Bergoglio can say with a straight face, "I believe in God, not in a Catholic God; there is no Catholic God."

  1. The Code of Canon Law, 1917 Canon 188 reiterates the basic concept of Ex Cum Apostolatus. A heretic loses his office ipso facto without a declaration.

  2. To be fair to Francis, Reiki is a superstitious observance that supposedly heals through the agency of a so-called higher intelligence, in other words, demons. This makes it a species of magic rather than proper heresy. Therefore he could conceivably perform Reiki without ever denying the distinction between God and the world. However, in that case, he could not plead his ignorance regarding its true nature as devil worship. This poses quite a dilemma for Francis' followers, though I doubt whether any of them will acknowledge it.

    1. Ex Cum comports with what the Church has always taught; a heretic cannot be pope. As Tom wrote above, Canon 188 of the 1917 Code of Canon Law, states a heretic loses his office by Divine Law, no declaration being necessary. This is also the unanimous teaching of the theologians.

      It stands to reason if a heretic cannot hold the office by Divine Law, then a heretic cannot attain the office either. Pope Paul IV was simply clarifying the matter.

      In the case of Quo Primum there is no equivalent teaching that the pope, as Supreme Legislator, cannot make changes to the Liturgy. As a matter of fact, two popes changed the Mass within less than 100 years after Quo Primum. It is not of Divine Law that the Mass cannot be changed, unlike a heretic holding office as “pope.”

      That is a major distinction! Hope this helped and thank you for the kind words my friend.

      God Bless,

    2. It is a matter of Divine Law that no one can change the substance of the Mass. It is a sacrifice and not a meal.

    3. You’re correct Tom. However, if a pope were to e.g., add another prayer at the foot of the altar, etc., that would not be changing the substance of the Mass. The pre-Vatican 2 Eastern Rites were very different but just as fully Catholic.

    4. Accidentals have changed many times over the years. Its called organic development and it signifies our deepening understanding of the Mass. This is another reason V2 was a fake council calling the organic development as "accretions." As if they were just cobwebs that grew on the Mass. So the lied to thd faithful and said we need to clean off these accretions to show the true beauty of the Mass. Modernists lie even when they are lying. The real reason for their rerturn to antiquarianism wasnt to find original beauty but to make it more protestant. Antiquarianism has been comdemned many times (Pius VI, Auctorem Fidei).

  5. More than likely a lot of the Novus Ordo members are practicing Reiki as well as Francis the fake and see nothing wrong with it. Most of the Novus Ordo churches in my area are advertising Yoga and Tai Chi. The advertisements for these diabolical practices are plastered in signs on the church yards. Anything seems to gather favor in the Novus Ordo except the true Catholic Faith. I truly believe we are living in the last days.

  9. I disagree with you, Tom. This nope is clearly different. He is going farther faster. He is assuaging the consciences of sinners, thus driving the last nail in the coffin of their deadened consciences. Catholics knew that divorce and remarriage meant they couldn't receive the Holy Eucharist. Now they apparently can. Talk about confirming people in their sin. People who are following Francis in BASIC tenets of his twisted "faith" are dying today and going to HELL. The sooner Francis goes the better.

    1. Then what? Another conciliar modernist neo conservative like Burke? What's the difference? They both teach a false faith. Perhaps if Bergolio offends more people, they may wake up to the truth behind the V2 NO facade. With someone like Ratzinger, the pewsitters were lulled into a false sense of security thinking the V2 NO sect is the Catholic Church. No, charity toward souls demands they be shown the Truth. Bergolio is, through his daily blasphemies, exposing the V2 religion for what it truly teaches.

      Delete
  10. No, Tom --- you're missing my point. Many things point to it being 10 to midnight. It's all about ensnaring as many souls as possible. You overlooked my point about how insidious Francis is. Bergolio isn't offending many; rather he's assuaging MANY consciences by giving them *exactly* what they want, and in doing so legitimizing their behavior which was heretofore a mortal sin. You talk about people waking up. Far fewer in that category than those asleep whom Bergolio is trying to perpetually tranquilize. There is a massive difference between Burke and Bergolio. Burke isn't attempting to falsify consciences over basic things such as divorce and adultery. And let me ask you: Is America better off in general under conservatives like Mike Pence or leftists such as Hillary or Bernie? Obviously, it's a matter of degrees, with some scenarios better than others.
    The devil plays the numbers, and Bergolio is high yield. Not as good as an unexpected/surprise nuclear war, but he is and continues to be fantastic value.
    Now, if you don't think there's a possibility we're in end times, consider this: Look around you. What do you see insofar the younger generation? You see, by and large, a tech-savvy bunch of kids who may as well have their device surgically attached to their hands. The VAST majority do not have the truth insofar religion. Extrapolate, and then ask yourself: How amenable will these masses of people be to having a chip implanted their wrists for transacting, with the pitch being that it will be far more secure and combat identity theft?
    Things are moving rapidly, and we're much better off if certain elements of Francis' program are arrested by his departure.

    This is a matter of numbers. I happen to think that fewer souls will be lost under a Burke as there will be under a Bergolio.

    4. There were a few times in early Church history that only a handful of people knew the Pope's name.
      Just like our Traditional Catholic clergy in 2018,the Bishops were told to ordain and consecrate as needed using their own discretion.
      The Pope's name was kept secret for his protection during the persecutions.
      It's possible (as in 1% chance) we may have a true Pope hiding in exile.

      How do you affix a 1% chance to the proposition of a pope in exile?

      Is there any evidence whatsoever that would have you conclude there's a 1% chance of a (true) pope in exile?

    1. Yes. The article states Ming conducts acupuncture, Chinese traditional massage, and manipulation (‘re-directing’) of life force energy on the Pope. That’s Reiki.

Also, Ming is quoted in another source saying, “Regarding the spectacular cure of Bergoglio’s heart, Ming explains: “It was in 2005, when a new election for pope was coming. The doctors wanted him to have surgery, but he did not want it. By means of my treatment, his blood started to circulate better in the arteries - which were obstructed. All I did was to re-direct the body’s energy. After that, he [Bergoglio] had full confidence in me. His doctors, all proud, became a little resentful except for one lady doctor who came here to learn Chinese medicine with me; she is Graciela Rodriguez.”

    5. I'm not a fan of Pope Francis but I also don't like hit pieces against him. You still have not provided any proof that he participated in Reiki, you just inferred it from a comment and then tried to use it to invent a reason why he can't be pope. The other article was clear that he underwent massage and acupuncture but said nothing about Reiki. Why? As for the re-directing energy comment, from a Chinese medicine practitioner perspective, massage therapy and acupuncture could also be implied.

    6. Frankie doesn’t need “hit pieces.” He’s Satan’s #1 helper. See my citation below. As far as Chinese medicine goes, TIA is quoted as follows:

      “Thus, when some illness occurs in a person, Taoist medicine - the immediate consequence of that religion-philosophy - considers that the physical defect of the body is caused by an obstruction of Tao’s universal energy that should be flowing naturally through that person. When the person gives free course to that immanent force inside his soul, it reestablishes the broken energetic equilibrium and restores health to the sick organ.”

      We’re talking about a Taoist monk and his pagan energy forces. It is not identical with acupuncture or massages.

    1. but he never provided the proof for this charge. We don't even have the link to the article he is referencing yet. Just hold off until he provides the source article, there is enough to convict Bergolio without inventing stuff like this.

    2. I don’t “invent” anything. My posts are well sourced. Besides a hard copy of TAO, the magazine is pictured with the quote I cited above from the R&R website “Tradition in Action”—-
      http://www.traditioninaction.org/bev/160bev10_30_2013.htm

      If you were to read my blog, you would know my accuracy. I don’t like having my integrity called into question.

    3. You provided no proof for the charges that Francis participated in Reiki, but only that he sought the help of a Chinese practitioner, and yet you stated it as though it is a fact and then tried to use that to conclude he couldn't have been elected Pope.
      Anyone who makes unfounded charges such as this should have their integrity called into question. The link to the article is a TIA post. From TIA: "...the magnetic gaze Francis displays on some occasions reflects the presence of his Tao-Devil friend who is there, well established in his soul, commanding the show?" Well then I guess that is your proof.

    4. I still think Introibo has it 100% correct.

      "Liu Ming reveals the occult secrets of Chinese cuisine and food, offers predictions of the future, practices divination, and instructs the Pope on the finer points of Taoism, educating him that there is no difference between the Tao and the Personal Being Who is the Christians’ God. He conducts acupuncture, Chinese traditional massage, and manipulation (‘re-directing’) of life force energy on the Pope.

      The philosophies of the Tao are incompatible with and inimical to Christianity."

    5. Facts:
      1. TAO magazine clearly reports that Ming is a Taoist monk that treated Frankie as “redirecting his energy” —clearly what is a Reiki practice

      2. Reiki is condemned by his own “bishops” in the USA

      3. He gave Ming not a Bible or a Green Scapular for conversion, but the pagan “I Ching” confirming him in his false belief

      4. I didn’t offer TIA as proof of all it’s assertions, but that TAO magazine clearly reports what I did, and there is a picture of that issue

      5. A heretic cannot attain the papacy, but there are so many reasons, this is just fuel to the fire. How about participating in Protestant and Jewish services? Moral relativism and ecumenism are incompatible with the Catholic faith. There are many documented instances of them.

      6. As one astute reader pointed out, it might not be an embracing of pantheism (what his “bishops” charge about Reiki), but it would qualify as pagan practice “For all the gods of the Gentiles are devils: but the Lord made the heavens” Psalm 96:5.

      7. Yet you would have us think that “There is no Catholic God” Bergoglio was simply getting a massage.

      You may question my intergrity. I question your sanity.

    6. 1. "redirecting his energy" is not exclusive to Reiki and could be his interpretation of ANY of his prescribed treatments.
      2. Irrelevant
      3. Irrelevant
      4. pictures of a magazine from TIA is not proof.
      5. You can't claim the man isn't the pope because he "might have" been involved in Reiki several years prior to the Bishops' investigation. Stick to what can be proven and then you won't have to worry about people questioning your integrity.
      6. Again, it is not a question of the pagan practice, but whether or not Francis was practicing it. You have no proof.
      7. THE ARTICLE SAID HE WAS BEING TREATED WITH MASSAGES AND ACUPUNCTURE. IT DID NOT MENTION REIKI.
      8. Sedevacantists such as you are notorious for inventing and reading things that are not there and then getting all worked up. Trads spin everything they can possibly find, yes including unfavorable photo shots.

      My point has been made. You don't know he did Reiki and you shouldn't state that he did until you know it. It's called calumny and its a sin. And since you claim to be God's servant you should watch yourself.

      Delete
    7. 1. Have you read TAO? No. Even so, redirecting energy is Reiki. Given that he is a Taoist and practices divination, this is EXACTLY what he was doing. If you saw a Mohammadan getting supplies for a bomb, chances are he’s not using them to make a non-lethal conversation piece for the living room of his house.

      See the link in the comments above. He “manipulated his energy.”
      2. Very relevant that he is involved with a pagan monk in “healing” condemned by his own “bishops.”

      3. Relevant insofar as he does not hold the Catholic faith. A real pope confirms his brethren in the Faith and asks all to join the Church.

      4. I cannot send you my copy, but it shows the article is real.

      5. My purpose was to show how far Bergoglio has sunk—and it shows.

      6. See #1.

      7. THE ARTICLE MAKES IT CLEAR THAT HE PERFORMED ACUPUNCTURE, MASSAGE, AND MANIPULATED HIS ENERGY. That’s three things you would like to reduce to one.

      8. R&R are notorious for putting their heads in the sand. Remember that the next time Bergoglio comes to give “communion” to divorced adulterers after praying at the local synagogue.

      Your point is ridiculous.

    8. Telling someone they are guilty of rash judgment and calumny is ridiculous? This post is a perfect example of how Sedevacantists lie and calumniate for the sake of strengthening their positions. Again, in this case, you are wrong. Yes, energy manipulation CAN be Reiki but Reiki is merely one of MANY modalities of alternative healing whereby physical intervention is used to manipulate energies. You should know that acupuncture and chiropractic can also fall into the category.

      Furthermore, just because Pope Francis used Mr. Ming doesn't mean he believes in his religion. When you go to a Jewish doctor and take his drugs does that mean you subscribe to the Talmud? The Pope was sick and sought help outside of the pharmaceutical industry and it happened to work for him. Sorry but that doesn't make him a false pope.

      As I said, rash judgment and calumny is a serious sin and you are on display. Two more examples are that you presumed to know what I read and studied and what faith position I hold.

      Delete
    9. Energy manipulation CAN be Reiki, and since it was a pagan monk who distinguished it from massage and acupuncture, what else COULD it be? He is seeped in the pagan practices! Given who he is, how he displays his religion, and what he said, it’s the logical conclusion. He COULD have been praying the Rosary (not logically impossible) but is it reasonable to make that conclusion?

      Your analogy to the Jewish doctor is inapposite. Modern medicine is not pseudoscience operating under pagan beliefs and principles. Amoxicillin is an antibiotic and I need not subscribe to Talmudic beliefs because the physician is a Jew. If Bergoglio were going to Ming as a traditional doctor of medicine, then despite his pagan ways, I’d have no problem.

      Such is not so in the instant case. It is the TREATMENT ITSELF that is seeped in paganism, rejected by medical science, and CONDEMNED by Frankie’s own so-called “bishops” in these words:
      “Reiki therapy finds no support either in the findings of natural science or in Christian belief. For a Catholic to believe in Reiki therapy presents insoluble problems...In terms of caring for one's spiritual health, there are important dangers. To use Reiki one would have to accept at least in an implicit way central elements of the worldview that undergirds Reiki theory, elements that belong neither to Christian faith nor to natural science.” (See above post for citation).

      I don’t presume to know what you read and study, and I don’t see that coming into play here. As to your faith position, if you are a Traditionalist (sedevacantist), I apologize. In that there may be indeed rash judgement. As to my post and its conclusion I stand by what I wrote as the logical conclusion based on the manifest weight of the credible evidence.

  17. ANONYMOUS AT 6:03 AM

    You remind me of John Salza.

    As one on the panel of presiding judges in this place, I find Francis GUILTY of consorting with an "alternative healer" steeped in paganism. He submitted himself to a discipline that conforms to the same kind and type as "Reiki." ALL pagan cultures have "shamans" and "faith healers" who derive their powers from Satan. This is clearly no different. It may not have been the brand name, "Reiki," but it was Reiki-like.
    You, Anon @ 6:03 am, are the typical Salzaesque, glib Frankie defender - so quick to FALSELY accuse fellow-Catholics of calumny. Yes, that's right, FALSELY ACCUSE. I think you owe Introibo an apology before you slither off to ply your wares elsewhere.
    (P.S. I'm the anon who opined that we are better off without Francis.)

    1. You can say what you want about me but my position is correct and that infuriated you. You have convicted a man of using REIKI without proof- period. No-matter how you wish to spin it now that is rash judgment and calumny. It is a fact that there are numerous modalities to "redirecting energy" - two of which (massage therapy and acupuncture) you have nothing to say about. But your obsession with Pope Francis drives you to see everything he says and does as evil- to the point of inventing "facts." You have allowed your hatred for the man to lead you into the sins of calumny and rash judgment, so even if Pope Francis is the antichrist incarnate he just won a victory over you. It is also noteworthy that the Church has never said anything about Reiki. But Introibo, who rejects V2, hand selects a condemnation of Reiki from the V2 bishops that was made several years AFTER Francis allegedly participated in it and then he triumphantly holds that up as Francis' contradiction. How desperate and childish.

    3. As to my adversary Anonymous @ 5:39,
      The only thing that infuriates me is false accusations against my character and defending the indefensible evil of Bergoglio.

      I haven’t spoken to massage and acupuncture, But I shall: These two can have pagan influences or not depending on the practitioner. I know a Vatican II sect woman who is a LMT (licensed massage therapist), but tells the people who go to her it is simply for muscle relaxation and stress relief. Nothing wrong there.

      Acupuncture has pagan Chinese roots, and some use it as such. However, not all use it as “energy manipulation.” Considered pseudoscience by the AMA, there are acupuncturists who argue that the needles may stimulate the release of pain-killing natural chemicals, relax tense muscles, or inhibit the conduction of pain through counter-irritation. It is approached in a strictly scientific manner and they are looking for acceptance by the scientific/ medical community. It remains to be seen by studies in peer reviewed literature if they are ultimately successful in their efforts. However, there is no paganism.

      Reiki can ONLY be inexorably linked to paganism. Ming distinguished three things he used on Bergoglio: massage, acupuncture and energy redirection. They are discussed distinctively. If energy redirection was acupuncture or massage, it would be redundant to discuss energy manipulation apart from them. Ming discusses three things NOT two, that he performed and he is a pagan monk.

      It is interesting that YOU have not disclosed your beliefs after claiming rash judgement on my part. I doubt you’re a sede if you call Bergoglio Pope Francis (without quotes) and claim I reject Vatican II. The logical import is you accept his”papacy.” Am I wrong? It appears you are the Salza-like ostrich willing to defend this evil man’s false status regardless of facts. Many facts apart from Reiki.

      Reiki is so pagan even some of the MODERNIST “bishops” in the USA condemned it. If you accept V2, they are teachers of the faith, and it would carry Magisterial authority to some degree.

      Despite this, Bergoglio is more Modernist than most Modernists, and sees nothing wrong with going to—for all intents and purposes—-a pagan “healer” and confims him in his devilish beliefs and practice.

      I’m no calumniator because you refuse to see the obvious. The Vatican II sect’s ecumenism is destroying souls by the millions. Pagan healers, prayers with Jews, and holding Islam in “esteem” is all bringing down our civilization.

      Perhaps when the Grand Imam of the Islamic Republic of Italy, starts issuing fatwas from the erstwhile St Peter’s Basilica you’ll realize the wolf in papal clothing that made it all possible. Then it will be too late.

      I’ll be praying for your conversion.

      You're a dreamer. Like I said, you should busy yourselves electing your next pope instead of calumniating the real one. You can be a really big help by sending out invitations to the upcoming council.

      Delete
    10. Your ignorance of the teaching of the theologians is your problem, not mine. An imperfect general council is the idea of the Church’s theologians. For example, theologian Van Noort was hypothesizing what would happen should the Communists plant a hydrogen bomb in the Vatican killing Pope Pius XII while holding a conference with all the world’s cardinals. The idea is very real. Your “pope” is very fake.

      He made the following public statement:Oct 28, 2015: "the Church regards with esteem the believers of all religions, appreciating their spiritual and moral commitment…Now, to conclude this Audience, I invite everyone, each one on his or her own, to pray in silence. May each one do so according to his or her own religious tradition.”
      L’ Osservatore Romano, October 30, 2015, pp. 3-4

      Compare to a real pope: “The Catholic Church is alone in keeping the true worship. This is the fount of truth, this the house of Faith, this the temple of God: if any man enter not here, or if any man go forth from it, he is a stranger to the hope of life and salvation...

      Certainly such attempts can nowise be approved by Catholics, founded as they are on that false opinion which considers all religions to be more or less good and praiseworthy, since they all in different ways manifest and signify that sense which is inborn in us all, and by which we are led to God and to the obedient acknowledgment of His rule. Not only are those who hold this opinion in error and deceived, but also in distorting the idea of true religion they reject it, and little by little turn aside to naturalism and atheism, as it is called; from which it clearly follows that one who supports those who hold these theories and attempt to realize them, is altogether abandoning the divinely revealed religion." Encyclical "Mortalium Animos" (On Religious Unity), by Pope Pius XI in 1928

      But none of this will register with you because you’ll invent excuses as to how mutually exclusive pronouncements can be reconciled. Is it calumny to say Frankie is doing the very thing condemned by Pope Pius XI ? That they cannot BOTH be correct?

      I’ll still be praying for your conversion, but there’s nothing more to say when you’re not open to the Truth.

      At the risk of sounding uncharitable, the old aphorism holds true, “Youth ages, immaturity is outgrown, drunkenness can be sobered, and ignorance can be educated. However, stupid lasts forever.”

    Btw, acupuncture, acupressure and chiropractic have scientific explanations, UNLIKE Reiki. For example, scientists now believe that the needles in acupuncture open up neurological pathways. The abovementioned aren't Eastern disciplines WITH ONLY a mystical (read as demonic) explanation, which is (to science) no explanation at all, because atheist scientists, of course, reject the devil.

    I'll now leave Introibo to deal with you in the first instance.

  20. You guys are getting bogged down it petty details. The sorry fact here is that we have a "pope" who we all agree would not be adverse to recieving a few reiki sessions. We all know Francis the Blasphemer has no problems with Reiki nor with those who administer its pagan practices. We all know that a real Pope, like Pope St Pius X, would condemn such practices unequivovcally. So, Introibo is in no way impugning the character of Bergolio even of his facts are wrong (which I am not suggesting). The problem is that there is a man who the vast majority of those who call themselves Catholic, believes that he is actually the Pope. These deluded souls actually profess that a man who is not Catholic can be the head of the Catholic Church. This claim is so absurd that those who reject this claim can only shake their heads in disbelief that so many seemingly intelligent people can hold such an idiotic belief.
