The planned violation of Universi Dominici Gregis by wealthy American Catholics

It is well-known that a certain faction of discontented right-wing individuals in the US, mostly converts and traditional conservatives, cannot stand Pope Francis and his return of the Catholic Church to its original Christian synodality, rather than high-brow monarchy, pomp and circumstance. It is also known that a group of such persons will stop at nothing to recreate the Church into their own perceived image and likeness of what it should be.

Their latest attempt, backed by deep capitalist money, is a proposed ‘Red Hat Report‘ on all the cardinals of the Catholic Church. It should be noted that this attempt is a direct and deliberate violation of Saint John Paul II’s apostolic constitution Universi Dominici Gregis with regard to papal conclave rules in terms of the blanket ban on “any external interference [including] in writing or by word of mouth, either directly and personally or indirectly and through others.” In other words they think they can influence papal elections in a parallel manner to how they influenced that of the US presidency.

These people, this group, publicly proclaim they “love the Catholic Church.”

They have forgotten that the Church is not an American Church and it does not belong to them. The Church is neither a committee nor the US Congress. The papacy is not the American presidency. The Church is the Mystical Body of Christ, it is a universal Church, and no one ‘cleans it up’ (if there is any cleaning to be done) except Christ Himself.

The pride and arrogance manifested above do not originate with the Spirit of God.

You are the Judases of the Catholic Church

For all those calling for the resignation of Pope Francis, the valid and licit Vicar of Christ on earth, only the following suffices:

You are the Judases of the Catholic Church and of God Himself, despite all your claims to the contrary.

Ubi Petrus, ibi Ecclesia, ibi Deus.

Clarity and a warning about American Catholics and Pope Francis

This needs to be said without ambiguity: Those American Catholics who judge Pope Francis are doing so at the peril of their own soul. You do not judge the Vicar of Christ; that privilege is reserved solely to God. You do not have the right to determine whether he is humble or not, innocent or not, because you do not reside in his heart, mind and soul.

You are playing with fire. That right does not pertain to you. You certainly do not have the right to employ weasel words in order to maintain deniability, while in effect, carrying out the above. You are furthermore responsible for all the souls you are covertly leading away from God, away from the Church, away from His own Vicar on earth, people – many – who do not know otherwise, by your words and actions under the veneer of ‘true piety.’

This warning goes for those American Catholics who have attempted to claim repeatedly, in public, that they hear and see Christ Himself, while waging years-long battles of libel, calumny and slander against those who stand up to them and say “no” in relation to their underlying infidelity to the entirety of the Magisterium of the Catholic Church.

Yes, this is for you – liars, traitors and betrayers of the Truth. Demagogues in sheep’s clothing.

For the general public, discern for yourselves whether any of the above is from Satan masked as an angel of light or from God Who is Truth.

Satan is a master at quoting Scripture. But the plain, cold reality is that when he does so, there is always a grain of falsehood involved – a falsehood or a temptation designed to drive you incrementally away from the One, True Church; the One, True God. Christ Himself does not go against His own Vicar:

Whatever you shall bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you shall loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven (Mt 18:18).

One of the falsehoods that has currently taken root, in the writings and speeches of current-day American Catholic ‘prophets’, is that lay persons (or lay persons claiming to be non-lay, despite ongoing and repeated denial of this state by their own bishops) have the right to criticize – in public, even – and ‘determine’ the humility or otherwise of Christ’s own Vicar on earth, not to mention calling outright for his resignation in public.

Go to confession! Be ashamed of yourselves!

Develop humility before attempting to call out the purported lack of humility in others. See the mote in your own eye/s before seeing the motes in the eyes of everyone else!

Aborted children do not lose the Beatific Vision forever

For those who keep insisting, wrongly, that children who are aborted in the womb lose the Beatific Vision forever, here is a prayer, given by Christ Himself in 1998 to Barnabas Nwoye, that manifests otherwise:

Heavenly Father, Your love is eternal. In Your ocean of love, You saved the world through Your only-begotten Son, Jesus Christ. Now look at Your only Son on the Cross Who is constantly bleeding for love of His people, and forgive Your world. Purify and baptize aborted children with the Precious Blood and water from the Sacred Side of Your Son, Jesus Christ, Who hung dead on the Cross for their salvation; in the Name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit. May they, through the holy death of Jesus Christ, gain everlasting life, through His wounds be healed and through His Precious Blood be freed. There to rejoice with the saints in heaven. Amen.

To believe that God is not merciful enough to provide in a mystical way for the innocents whose lives are taken against their will by abortion is, in both essence and fact, to believe that God is a cruel god instead of the Father He is.

More discernment

A person who publicly incites his or her subjects to hatred or animosity against the Apostolic See or the Ordinary, because of some act of ecclesiastical authority or ministry, or who provokes the subjects to disobedience against them, is to be punished by interdict or other just penalties (Code of Canon Law #1373).

In relation to the voices arising in America, clerical and lay, that are calling for the resignation of Pope Francis, ask the following questions:

  • What spirit/s is/are motivating this voice/these voices?
  • Is this call coming from God or from Satan?
  • What tone is being employed?
  • In what manner are they calling for the pope’s resignation?
  • Are truth and charity both present in the process of the call or is one of them lacking? If so, what exactly is lacking and to what degree?
  • Is the call universal (taken up by the entire Catholic Church in the whole world) or is it parochial (located to a subset of people in a localized region of the Church)?
  • Is entitlement present in the call or otherwise? Does the call further unity or division* in the Mystical Body of Christ?
  • Is peace present or absent in the very process of the call?
  • What is the role of hatred in this call?”

Because something may appear to be desirable or good at face value, especially if it is in keeping with the modus operandi of the secular culture of a particular nation, it does not necessarily mean that the underlying motivation for it is coming from God. And because something may appear to be undesirable does not equally mean that it is not coming from God.

Discern.

The truth underlying this call for resignation of the Vicar of Christ is self-evident if you discern.

Examine all the facts, therefore, and discern. Do not be taken in by ‘famous’ names in American Catholic media and/or reporting. They all have underlying personal-professional agendas at stake.

Discern – and discern wisely.

*The furtherance of division never originates with the Holy Spirit. Neither do confusion, condemnation, and holier-than-thou proselytization.

On discernment by Pope Francis

“It is not of God to defend truth at the price of charity, nor charity at the price of truth, nor equilibrium at the price of both of them. In order to avoid becoming a truthful destroyer or a charitable liar or a confused paralytic, one better discern” (Bergoglio, J. M. 1987. The Doctrine of Tribulation).

An ideological truth must always be judged not for its content, but for the spirit that sustains it, which is not necessarily the Spirit of truth (Fares, D., citing Bergoglio, J. M. Umilta’).

The First See

see

A succint reminder in the face of what is unfolding and developing in the Catholic Church in America, Italy, and the Vatican: the First See is validly and licitly judged by no one but God (cf. Can. 1404, Codex Juris Canonici). Every single individual, clerical or lay, at whatever rank or status, who is engaging in judgment of the actions and non-actions of Pope Francis is doing so at the peril of his or her own soul.

Ubi Petrus, ibi Ecclesia, ibi Deus. Where there is the canonically-elected pope, there is the Church and there is God, no matter the personal failings or otherwise of the said pope. What happened this weekend was an attempted coup d’etat, so that an anti-pope significantly increases his chances of being installed and Scripture is then fulfilled.

The anti-pope is not Pope Francis. He is the cleric still behind the scenes who has married a woman on the sly, despite his presumed celibate state in the Latin Rite Church, and become fully possessed by Satan. This is the man who is attempting to take over the First See in order to dismantle the Catholic Church.

Everything else is just a front for this.

 

A simple question

For the cardinals, arch/bishops, and priests of the Catholic Church in America, following on the heels of the Pennsylvania Grand Jury report, one question. It is this:

Do you believe in the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob?

 

The Pennsylvania grand jury report and the Catholic Church in America

The Pennsylvania grand jury report has been released.

Three things:

  1. About time;
  2. Much-needed purification at last of a fraction of the Catholic Church in America (the rest similarly needs to be purified – and this includes Catholic ‘reporting institutions’, not just dioceses and clerics. The rot is everywhere and there is written evidence of it);
  3. Again, about time.

Pray for everyone involved, in particular the victims and all those who remain in denial.

The Third Passover, not the Second Coming

Why are you so afraid, O you of little faith? (Mt 8:26).

Many in the Church these days, in particular traditional and traditionalist Catholics, as well as Evangelical Christians, predominantly located in America and in the Anglo-Saxon world, believe that we are fast approaching the time of the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. They speak, both in content and in tone, as though the end of the world is nigh. However, these Catholics and Christians are mistaken in both their ‘predictions’ and beliefs, not to mention their desires.

This is not the time of the Second Coming; the exact time and day of which is not even known to Christ, but to the Father alone. It is the time of the Third Passover, the crossing over from the era of sin and disorder into the era of holiness, peace, and order; the era of joy on earth, the Reign of the Divine Will.

A few indicators below once again, therefore, for the more skeptical, from the timeline of salvation history, to dispel the confusion that continues to be present on this issue.

Before the Second Coming:

  1. There will be the unification of Judaism and Christianity under the banner of Christ the Messiah. This has not yet happened;
  2. There will be the era of peace that is mentioned in the Book of Revelation. This has not yet happened;
  3. There will be the illumination of all consciences, also mentioned in the Book of Revelation. This has not yet happened;
  4. There will be the reunification of all the Christian churches and ecclesial communities in accordance with Christ’s prayer to the Father, “May they be one as We are One.” This has not yet happened;
  5. There will be a worldwide evangelization and rise of Christianity as has never been witnessed before, and in comparison to which previous evangelizations will pale. This has not yet happened;
  6. There will be the coming of the AntiChrist himself (not antichrists) and the global persecution of Christians. This will happen after #1 through #5 above, none of which have so far happened.

Several point to the current period of generalized (and increasing) apostasy from the Faith as the indicator that the Second Coming is near. Again, however, these people are missing one simple fact: Two periods of generalized apostasy will take place before the Second Coming, not one. The first period is happening now. The second period will not happen before #1 through #5 above have occurred and been completed in time.

Thus, the conflation of the first period of apostasy with the second period is an outright error and a gross misunderstanding of the location of our present time in salvation history. It is a misunderstanding born of fear (which always originates with Satan), not of faith (which always originates with God). An error born of vincible or invincible ignorance.

Further, the coming of the Kingdom “on earth as it is in heaven” (#2 above; the era of peace) has not yet occurred. This coming refers not to the (visible) Second Coming of Christ in glory, but to the (invisible) coming of the Kingdom within the heart of the soul (the nous) of man. It is the period of the intermediate coming that is (1) the commencement of deification, (2) the reign of the Father on earth, with everyone being able to hear Him and know that He is, indeed, their Father; (3) the temporary chaining of Satan and his demons by the Archangel Michael for a period of time, so that peace can truly reign on earth; (4) the Eucharistic reign whereby Adoration will once again become central to the prayer life of humankind and of the Church in every single part of the world, (5) the reign of the Holy Spirit and the consequent onset of the Second Pentecost, which will parallel the First Pentecost in terms of the stupefying and visible miracles that will occur; and (6) the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. This is all still the era of Divine Mercy.

What humanity is going through right now is the period of the Third Passover, which is the necessary period of purification before illumination occurs, so that deification can commence.

Capital punishment and the ordinary magisterium of Pope Francis

I desire mercy, not sacrifice (Hos 6:6; Mt 9:13).

Several conservative Catholics in the United States of America are up in arms against the latest declaration of Pope Francis in relation to the death penalty and its inadmissibility. They are particularly miffed that he has “dared” to make sure that the Catechism of the Catholic Church accurately reflects the needs of our times. The below, therefore, bears repeating as many (wilful traditionalist clerics included) believe that to be Catholic, they do not need to follow what the Pope says, but only what he says if it happens to agree with whatever their particular religiopolitical-ideological stance might be.

Pride and spiritual arrogance at their best.

So, here goes:

Public statements by the Pope that do not qualify as ordinary and universal magisterium also have an authority that Catholics are not free to dismiss. They are required to give such teachings religious submission in accordance with the declaration of Vatican Council II as follows: Bishops, teaching in communion with the Roman Pontiff, are to be respected by all as witnesses to divine and Catholic truth. In matters of faith and morals, the bishops speak in the name of Christ and the faithful are to accept their teaching and adhere to it with a religious assent. This religious submission of mind and will must be shown in a special way to the authentic magisterium of the Roman Pontiff, even when he is not speaking ex cathedra; that is, it must be shown in such a way that his supreme magisterium is acknowledged with reverence, the judgments made by him are sincerely adhered to, according to his manifest mind and will. His mind and will in the matter may be known either from the character of the documents, from his frequent repetition of the same doctrine, or from his manner of speaking (Lumen Gentium, Dogmatic Constitution on the Church, §25).

Many American Catholics, some clerics included, keep confusing the ordinary magisterium of Pope Francis for his ordinary and universal magisterium; to speak only of parts of the ordinary part, not the extraordinary part, of the teaching office of the Catholic Church.

They are wrong.

The Pope, like all other Popes before him, has both the ordinary magisterium and the ordinary and universal magisterium. It is under the former that the death penalty issue has been addressed, not under the latter, and this magisterial route, as shown above, also requires acceptance of it and religious assent – if you want to be, at the very least, minimally Catholic (let alone hard-identity Catholic).

A different route, however, is always possible for the wilful, the stubborn, the spiritually proud (non)cognoscenti: those who believe they know God’s mind and will more than anyone else, and His desires for all humanity since prior to the beginning of time. The route is this:

Go and set up your own church like Fr. Martin Luther, O.S.A., did in 1517. After all, it’s not like setting up one’s own church, with one’s own particular magisterium, and one’s own cult of personality (and followership) is not in the ‘best’ traditions of American church life, since the nation’s inception over 250 years ago! Then you can be your own (little p) pope. You can lay down whichever law you want, however you want it, with whatever stipulations and ‘membership requirements’ you want, in wherever ‘refuge’ you want, and no one will contradict you. You will be the head honcho and, as the saying goes, everyone will live happily ever after.

You will be in ‘good’ company – the company of the most famous, spiritually rebellious ‘church’ father. Just do not expect to attain Heaven and life with the Holy Trinity for eternity, unless you genuinely turn back to God and His One, True Church, because extra ecclesiam nulla salus.

New litmus test and the de facto schism in the Catholic Church in America

Ubi Petrus, ibi Ecclesia, ibi Deus.

Given the Pope’s declaration of the inadmissibility of the death penalty in all cases and his instruction to revise the Catechism of Catholic Church in this regard, the de facto schism in the Catholic Church in the United States is now coming to the fore. It is going to be very easy for everyone to know who is truly still a faithful son or daughter of the Church and who is, in effect, part of the parallel church, the false church, that has been so undeniably set up, together with its parallel magisterium.

Already, overt rebellion is in the ranks, because many American Catholics refuse to accept that you do not kill people, no matter what they might have done. What is common sense even for children these days just seems to keep flying right over the heads and hearts of said Catholics, because they keep rejecting the humility needed to understand God and His desires for humanity – desires since the very beginning of time.

Thus, instead of admitting that God Himself preserved Qayin, the first human murderer, from capital punishment, they prefer to pridefully blame the Pope for “heresy” or a “rupture with continuity,” neither of which claims are grounded in any kind of hermeneutical reality. Such Catholics concurrently keep refusing to understand the workings of the prevenient grace of God, which at its most basic means that no validly-elected Pope, from the time of Peter through the Pope at the very end of all time, can ever fall into heresy (papal indefectibility). You can learn more about that here.

Ego sum cum Papa semper (Saint George Preca).

The acceptance of the above inadmissibility of capital punishment in this day and age is, therefore, going to be, for at least American Catholics (and many other Catholics primarily in the Anglo-Saxon world), the litmus test of their fidelity or infidelity to God and to the Catholic Church as founded by Jesus Christ.

If you want to discern whether someone belongs to the real Church or to the false church, just ask them if they support the death penalty. There is no confusion any more on this issue (Pope Francis has closed the loopholes), except for those who deliberately insist on remaining spiritually blind. You will be surprised at some of the responses you may get.
