The church of darkness according to St Paul

AM+DG

The New Testament, actually warns us in many places about these end times – in the Gospels, as well as in the Epistles. One that has always attracted my attention is the one of St Paul. It seemed obvious that the one who “withholds” of “restrains” is Pope Benedict.

Br. Alexis Bugnolo, has once again written an amazing article that describes this prophecy of St Paul, and its meaning, in detail.

Therefore God shall send them the working of an error, to believe the lying

by Br. Alexis Bugnolo

“God is Truth. And God is Goodness Itself. For this reason God cannot but communicate truth. And when it may say that God sends evils in punishment, it must be understood that He permits evils to overcome sinners for their punishment.

This is the proper sense and reading of the Second Letter of the Apostle Saint Paul to the Thessalonians, a letter which speaks more and more clearly to us today, with the passing of each day.

Here is the text of 2 Thessalonians, chapter 2, according to the Douay-Rheims translation:

3 Let no man deceive you by any means: for unless there come a revolt first, and the man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition 4Who opposeth and is lifted up above all that is called God or that is worshipped, so that he sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself as if he were God.

The revolt was the revolt of the Cardinals and Bishops against Pope Benedict. Because a revolt in the proper sense is the betrayal of a monarch by those who serve  under him and should be obedient to himThat revolt took place in February of 2013.

Following the revolt, the rebels gave their allegiance to a usurper, a man of sin, whose name is Jorge Mario Bergoglio.  He is called rightly a man of sin, because every day he glorifies in sinning, especially in lying and blaspheming and mocking the truth.

He has set himself up above God by rewriting the Our Father and changing the sacramental discipline taught by Our Lord. He claims he knows mercy better than God Himself. And in this he has placed himself in the Vatican to be worshiped by the rest of the Church, that is, obeyed in his sinful commands.

5Remember you not that, when I was yet with you, I told you these things? 6And now you know what withholdeth, that he may be revealed in his time.exercis of the papal office

That which withheld the coming of Bergoglio was the exercise of the papal office.Pope Benedict still holds that office, but by not exercising it Bergoglio has been unleashed on the world.

7 For the mystery of iniquity already worketh: only that he who now holdeth do hold, until he be taken out of the way.

This mystery of iniquity is that of which Saint Paul says elsewhere:  Beware, because not all men have faith. He and the Apostles spoke of wolves and false pastors. These were the seeds of what we call the Lavender Mafia today. he that now holdeth, is Saint Peter the Apostle who by handing down his Petrine Office restrained the spirit of the Antichrist, which as the Saints teach, dwells mystically here at Rome, until the day of his revelation.

8And then that wicked one shall be revealed: whom the Lord Jesus shall kill with the spirit of his mouth and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming: him

Here, amid this woeful prophecy, Saint Paul consoles us by reminding us that Our Lord shall defeat the man of sin or the Antichrist. Some hold they are the same person. But as regards Bergoglio, Bl. Emmerich saw his defeat, so I think we must distinguish the two.We must fight against Bergogliowith the spirit of the Mouth of Jesus, that is, with the spirit of Truth, preaching the truth against his lies, …

9Whose coming is according to the working of Satan, in all power and signs and lying wonders:

The working of Satan is lying. All the powers of this world rejoiced in Bergoglio’s appearance on the scene because like them he was a worker of iniquity and a liar. And he dedicates himself to lying propaganda daily. And these are the lying wonders.

10And in all seduction of iniquity to them that perish: because they receive not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. Therefore God shall send them the operation of error, to believe lying:

And all who accept him as the Pope, knowing he is a liar, do so because they love lies or because they refuse to recognize that the spirit of lying is an infallible sign that the man is not the pope.And in this refusal they implicitly call the Lord Jesus a liar, Who said to those who hold the papal office: I have prayed for you that your faith may NEVER fail.

11That all may be judged who have not believed the truth but have consented to iniquity.

And that they cling to Bergogliowill be for their condemnation and destruction. For as he casts them down to Hell, they follow like silent sheep and obey him.The closing of churches is just their ultimate act of treachery.

12But we ought to give thanks to God always for you, brethren, beloved of God, for that God hath chosen you first fruits unto salvation, in sanctification of the spirit and faith of the truth:

Once again the Apostle of the Gentiles encourages us. …

13 Whereunto also he hath called you by our gospel, unto the purchasing of the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ. 14Therefore, brethren, stand fast: and hold the traditions, which you have learned, whether by word or by our epistle.

Here Saint Paul shows us the way to persevere in the present trial, by holding fast to Apostolic Tradition and Apostolic Right. He reminds us not to sit around waiting but to recognize that we have the duty to restore the Church.He is speaking especially to those Bishops who can recognize the signs of the times for what they are. And for this reason, the Apostle closes with this glorious exhortation.

15Now our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God and our Father, who hath loved us and hath given us everlasting consolation and good hope in grace, 16Exhort your hearts and confirm you in every good work and word.

Let us pray, now for the Bishops of the Church. For those who have let their minds be kidnapped

For this reason it is imperative that we pray as Our Lady asked to defeat the Church of Darkness, while not leaving aside the the works of corporal and spiritual mercy through which we let the light of Jesus Christ shine to this world of darkness.”

AM+ DG

This article is a re-post from the “From Rome” website by Bro. Alexis Bugnolo who has done amazing work in researching the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI. In this article he realizes that some people are confused because we must obey the Pope. But who is the Pope? He explains all the details in light of various Truths, that we as Catholics must hold. People must have knowledge to expel the confusion. There are lots of different scenarios in this article, that will help us to help others .

Our main aim must be the Salvation of Souls, and this article will help us. Please spread this to as many people, (and priests) as you can- but do it in humility and out of respect for the other person. Direct them to the original article (and Bro. Bugnolo’s many other priceless articles at the link :

Separated from the True Pope, you won’t remain Catholic for long

By Br. Alexis Bugnolo

Saint Paul warned us long ago: Beware, he said, for not all men have the Faith! He said this at the end of his Second Epistle to the Thessalonians, to whom he revealed so many things about the last days and the Anti-Christ(s) to come. Here is the Douay Rheims English version of 2 Thess. 3, which the Modernists do not preach on any more. But which I want to speak of in this article. The Apostle writes:

For the rest, brethren, pray for us, that the word of God may run, and may be glorified, even as among you; And that we may be delivered from importunate and evil men; for all men have not faith. But God is faithful, who will strengthen and keep you from evil. And we have confidence concerning you in the Lord, that the things which we command, you both do, and will do. And the Lord direct your hearts, in the charity of God, and the patience of Christ. And we charge you, brethren, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you withdraw yourselves from every brother walking disorderly, and not according to the tradition which they have received of us.For yourselves know how you ought to imitate us: for we were not disorderly among you; Neither did we eat any man’s bread for nothing, but in labour and in toil we worked night and day, lest we should be chargeable to any of you. Not as if we had not power: but that we might give ourselves a pattern unto you, to imitate us. 10 For also when we were with you, this we declared to you: that, if any man will not work, neither let him eat.

11 For we have heard there are some among you who walk disorderly, working not at all, but curiously meddling. 12 Now we charge them that are such, and beseech them by the Lord Jesus Christ, that, working with silence, they would eat their own bread. 13 But you, brethren, be not weary in well doing.

14 And if any man obey not our word by this epistle, note that man, and do not keep company with him, that he may be ashamed: 15 Yet do not esteem him as an enemy, but admonish him as a brother.

16 Now the Lord of peace himself give you everlasting peace in every place. The Lord be with you all. 17 The salutation of Paul with my own hand; which is the sign in every epistle. So I write.

18 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.

Bad Company makes bad companies

God made us to know the Truth and the Truth will set us free, because God our Creator is the Truth. It follows then, that we exercise our minds and wills in that which is most essentially directed to our own perfection and destiny when we assent to any truth and will to find it and keep it and put it into practice.

But any member of the Clergy, religious or laity — any hermit — who would hide the truth from you, then, is clearly not being honest, is not doing that which the Creator wants. This is especially true if the truth they are hiding is a truth revealed by God or the importance of which depends directly from what God has said.

The enemies of Peter are the enemies of Christ

Christ said to Peter that whatsoever he would bind on Earth would be bound also in Heaven. All true Catholics accept that. All fake catholics ignore it.

The Catholic Church for more than a 1000 years took this doctrine as so central to true Christianity that it was willing to leave a schism with the Greeks in place and not back down on the duty of all Christians to regard the doctrinal and disciplinary decrees of the Roman Pontiff as obligatory, in virtue of these very words of Jesus Christ.

That is why, you cannot be honestly a Christian, if you are not honestly a Catholic who submits to the Roman Pontiff. And that is also why the enemies of Peter are the enemies of Christ, because if you refuse the one you are calling the other a liar or regarding Him as not God.

Peter has told us when Peter is and is not Peter

And lest anyone be confused, it is the Roman Pontiff who has established in Canon Law the terms by which all can objectively and easily know when a man is the Roman Pontiff and when he is not.  To ignore these rules of Canon Law is just as grave as to disobey the Roman Pontiff and go off into schism, because it is an act whereby you say, “Let’s make up our own way of being Christian, apart from submission to the Roman Pontiff.”

This is why we can be 100% absolutely and supernaturally certain that  Christ Jesus does not regard any man His Vicar on Earth, if that man’s claim to be pope is not in accord with the norms of Canon Law and papal law.

The corrollary is that, we can be 100% absolutely and supernaturally certain that Christ Jesus does not regard any Vicar of His on Earth no longer His Vicar, if that man’s renunciation is not in accord with the norms of Canon Law and papal law.

Because this is the Catholic Faith, I have extensively investigated both questions, the first in regard to Bergoglio, the second in regard to Benedict. I did not do this on a whim, I did it out of supernatural faith.

There is no doubt about this principle: A man is or is not pope, or is or is no longer the pope, based on the laws of the Church at the time he begins or ceases to be the pope. This legal principle was recognized in the antipapacy of Anacletus II and his defeat by Pope Innocent II, a defeat which was secured by Saint Bernard of Claivaux, who came to Rome to preach the facts of law about the disputed election of 1130 A.D..

All the books printed in the Catholic Church since 1130 up until Feb. 2013 were in agreement. Pope Innocent II was the valid pope, Anacletus was the antipope, because Pope Innocent was elected in accord with the law of his predecessor, who changed the terms of a papal election in the last weeks of his life. But Anacletus claimed to be elected to the prior norm.

For the Modernist, even if he claims to be a Trad ….

For the Modernist, there is not fixed nor lasting truth. What was true yesterday, may not and probably is not true today. Everything is in change and development. Everything mus be alive, they say, but they really mean, has to die.

All those who changed their concepts on what makes a true Pope, on Feb. 11, 2013, are deceived by Modernism or are modernists, even if they claim to be a Traditional Catholic. This includes all the publication of the so called Traditional Catholic Movement who hold that Benedict is no longer the pope. Because canon 332 §2 has not changed and it says a pope resigns when he resigns suo muneri, not  ministerio. The Vatican knows this and has tried to hide it, and I have proven that indisputably more than 6 months ago. (See the Index to Pope Benedict’s Renunciation)

Stunningly Ann Barnhardt, in her recent podcast, revealed that even Chris Ferrara, the famous attorney, who writes for several Trad publications, admitted to her, that she is probably right on the points of Canon Law regarding the failed renunciation. That was like back in 2016. But Chris still recognizes Bergoglio as the pope. The only honest assessment is that Chris is not being honest either with the public or his own conscience.

From my work here at Rome, I sense the same is true for all the experts. You just mention that Benedict is the Pope and they do not laugh, they attack. They want you to shut up, or to go away. These are signs of deeply conflicted consciences.

If it is not Catholic, it is not Catholic

Men who want to be seen as Catholics but who won’t be responsibly faithful to the duties of the faith, should not be considered faithful Catholics. Those who knowingly deceive the faithful about who is the true pope and who is not the true pope are NOT involved in a little or small controversy. They ARE ACTIVELY SCHISMATIC AND PROMOTING SCHISM.

Saint Paul warned us of such men, and he told us what to do about it.

The true Pope is the mystical Neck of the Church

If you are separated from the true Pope, you won’t remain a Catholic for long. Yes, these men who act like modernists — I do not imagine they are, but they are being constrained by their love of being accepted by errant men and errant men with money and power — have let go of essential truths of the Catholic Faith. But even you, if you follow those who deceive you in such matters, will soon lose your faith. The Church will become something like what the Anglicans have, an all-is-up-for-grabs Christianity, which keeps the names and outward appearances, but has long ago dumped doctrine, morality and faith.

The same thing we see happening with these fake Trads. They are now trying to reinvent the definition of papal infallibility and have totally ignored the teachings of Christ and the saints about papal indefectibility. They are bending doctrine to invent an excuse to remain in communion with an obvious fake and antipope, while refusing communion with the true Pope who defends celibacy. They even attack the true Pope to justify their falsehoods!

This is why all Schismatics lost the true Faith, because they are no longer in union with the mystical neck of the Mystical Body and hence no longer in communion with Christ the Head. Those who fall into such sins cannot be saved, because there is no salvation for those who die separated from Christ.
