Stumbling Blocks: The Two Popes

AM+DG

The other stumbling block that has prevented people from recognizing the truth about what is actually happening in the Church, is the fact that there are two popes. People think that one has resigned, but once a pope, always a pope, and he deliberately only gave Bp.. Bergoglio the part of the papacy which ‘governs’. Don’t people think this is a bit weird?

There are many prophets who have told us that this would happen. There are Catholic prophecies from Saints, yet people don’t know of them. In this age of technology, you would think it would be easy. But even most priests and bishops dare not acknowledge these prophecies. Maybe they haven’t read them?

It might be possible to dismiss any individual one, and try to explain it away, but taken as a whole – they cannot be ignored. Looking at the Church today – they all make sense.

1. St Francis of Assisi

Before his death in 1226, St. Francis of Assisi called together the friars of his Order and detailed this prophecy of what was to come in the latter days concerning a future pope. The following is taken from Works of the Seraphic Father St. Francis of Assisi, R. Washbourne Publishing House, 1882, pp. 248-250, with imprimatur by His Excellency William Bernard, Bishop of Birmingham. The source of this prophecy is the Writings of St. Francis (1623) by Fr. Luke Wadding, preeminent historian and scholar on St. Francis of Assisi.

“At the time of this tribulation, a man, not canonically elected, will be raised to the Pontificate, who, by his cunning, will endeavor to draw many into error…. Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it under foot and deny it. Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Jesus Christ will send them not a true pastor, but a destroyer.” 

2. Bl. Anne Catherine Emmerich 1820

May 13, 1820

 “I saw also the relationship between the two popes. . .

I saw how baleful (harmful) would be the consequences of this false church. I saw it increase in size; heretics of every kind came into the city (of Rome). The local clergy grew lukewarm, and I saw a great darkness…”

Once more I saw that the Church of Peter was undermined by a plan evolved by the secret sect, while storms were damaging it. But I saw also that help was coming when distress had reached its peak. I saw again the Blessed Virgin ascend on the Church and spread her mantle [over it].”

July, 1820

“I saw the Holy Father surrounded by traitors and in great distress about the Church. He had visions and apparitions in his hour of greatest need. I saw many good pious Bishops; but they were weak and wavering, their cowardice often got the upper hand…Then I saw darkness spreading around and people no longer seeking the true Church.”  

August 10, 1820

I see the Holy Father in great anguish. He lives in a palace other than before and he admits only a limited number of friends near him. I fear that the Holy Father will suffer many more trials before he dies. I see that the false Church of darkness is making progress and I see the dreadful influence it has on the people. The Holy Father and the Church are verily in so great a distress that one must implore God night and day…”

“I have been told to pray much for the Church and the Pope…The people must pray earnestly for the extirpation (rooting out) of the dark church.”

 

October 1, 1820

“The Church is in great danger. We must pray so that the Pope may not leave Rome; countless evils would result if he did. They are now demanding something from him. The Protestant doctrine and that of the schismatic Greeks are to spread everywhere. I now see that in this place (Rome) the (Catholic) Church is being so cleverly undermined, that there hardly remain a hundred or so priests who have not been deceived. They all work for destruction, even the clergy. A great devastation is now near at hand.”

“In those days Faith will fall very low and it will be preserved in some places only.”

“The Little Black Man in Rome, whom I see so often, has many working for him without their clearly knowing for what end. He has his agents in the New Black Church also. If the Pope leaves Rome, the enemies of the Church will get the upper hand. I see the Little Black Man in his own country committing many thefts and falsifying things generally. Religion is there so skilfully undermined and stifled that there are scarcely 100 faithful priests. I cannot say how it is, but I see fog and darkness increasing … All must be rebuilt soon; for everyone, even ecclesiastics, are laboring to destroy (and) ruin is at hand.

N.b. The Jesuits wear black. The head of the Jesuits is referred to as the ”black pope”. Pope Francis is a Jesuit.

3. Our Lady of La Salette declared to Melanie Calvat (1831-1904):

      • Rome will lose the faith and become the seat of the antichrist.”
      • ‘The Church will be eclipsed, the world will be in consternation..” [Abbé Combe, the editor of the 1904 edition, adds the following note after this paragraph. ‘I have from Melanie that the Church will be eclipsed in this sense, that 1) one will not know which is the true pope;
      • for a time: the Holy Sacrifice will cease to be offered in churches, and also in houses: so there will be no more public worship. But she saw that yet the Holy Sacrifice would not cease: it would be offered in caves, in tunnels, in barns and in alcoves.’] (.” Abbot Combe: “The Secret of Melanie and the Actual Crisis”, Rome, 1906, p.137.)

 “The Church will be in eclipse”: Eclipse means hidden; covered up; seeming to disappear. The Holy Scriptures say: “Where there is Peter, there is the Church.” Melanie understood that Peter would be hidden- along with the Church, and that his “eclipse” would be a prelude to the disappearance of the Mass.  This reference to “Peter being hidden” represents Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI who is mostly hidden from our eyes and is prevented from exercising his Petrine ministry.

    • “The Holy Father will suffer a great deal because for a while the Church will yield to large persecution, a time of darkness and the Church will witness a frightful crisis

We are seeing right now, in these last few months the persecution of the church – Fr Kalchik, Cardinal Pell, Fr. Nicholas Rynne, and no doubt many others. A ‘time of darkness’ – Amoris Laetitia, the homosexual problem of bishops and priests in the Church , as well as crimes against children…

Obviously, it is not Pope Francis who is suffering! And the ‘frightful crisis of the Church’ is almost (if not already) upon us.

4. Prophecy of POPE PIUS X 1909

The following prophecy is about the pope who will have to flee Rome (later repeated by Sr Lucy of Fatima).

Pope Pius X’s second vision refers to a pope of the same name who will have to flee Rome.

Joseph Ratzinger is the only Pope (Emeritus means he still holds the reins of  Pope ) who has the same Christian name as Pope Pius X.

Pope Pius X’s name was ‘Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto – Guiseppe translated is “Joseph”. Pope Benedict XI’s name is  ‘Joseph Ratzinger’.

” In 1909, during an audience for the general chapter of the Franciscan Order, Pope Pius X suddenly fell into a trance. The audience waited in reverent silence. When he awoke, the Pope cried out:

“What I see is terrifying! Will it be myself? Will it be my successor? What is certain is that the Pope will quit Rome, and in leaving the Vatican he will have to walk over the dead bodies of his priests.  [This was precisely the vision sister Lucia received of the martyr pope dressed in white!]

“Do not tell anyone this while I am alive.”

Just prior to his death (August 20, 1914), Pope Pius X had another vision:

“I have seen one of my successors, of the same name, who was fleeing over the bodies of his brethren. He will take refuge in some hiding place; but after a brief respite, he will die a cruel death.

“Respect for God has disappeared from human hearts. They wish to efface even God’s memory. This perversity is nothing less than the beginning of the last days of the world.” 

5. Fatima 1917

      • In the Third Secret [of Fatima] it is foretold, among other things, that the great apostasy in the Church will begin at the top. –Mario L. Ciappi, Cardinal and household theologian to John Paul II; quoted in The Devil’s Final Battle, p. 33
      • Satan rules even in the highest positions and determines the direction of things. He will succeed in worming his way even into the highest summits of the Church…”
      • “But this will be a time of great trials for the Church. Cardinals will oppose cardinals. Bishops will oppose bishops. Satan will walk in their ranks. In Rome, there will be great changes. What is rotten will fall and what will fall will never rise again. Darkness will envelope the Church and the world will be thrown into a panic.”

The quote given above is taken from a German periodical published in 1963, Neues Europa, and received unofficial approbation in the 1960’s by several Church officials who had read the original 3rd Secret text hand-written by Sister Lucia. Among these Church officials was the respected Cardinal Ottovani. (Taken from:  http://marienfried.com/catholic%20teachings/prophecy%20of%20apostasy.html

  • At an interview of (Jesuit) Fr Malachi Martin in 1998, who was present at the reading of the Third Secret in 1960 by Pope John XXIII, Art Bell asked him if the statement that “The last pope will be under the control of Satan” is true and really part of the Third Secret,– he replies “Yes. That is correct”. See the whole interview at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gn–7GTffn8. See especially: 1h:46m:30s to 1h:47m:20s

 

      • “The world will be afflicted with wars, famine, the martyrdom of the good, persecution of the Church and the Holy Father, the annihilation of nations, and apostasy from the one true Faith”.

 6. St. Faustina

It is not generally known that St. Faustina, known for her role in establishing the devotion to Divine Mercy, penned an unusual entry into her diary on December 17, 1936. Entry 823 is as follows.

“I have offered this day for priests. I have suffered more today than ever before, both interiorly and exteriorly. I did not know it was possible to suffer so much in one day. I tried to make a Holy Hour, in the course of which my spirit had a taste of the bitterness of the Garden of Gethsemane. I am fighting alone, supported by His arm, against all the difficulties that face me like unassailable walls. But I trust in the power of His name and I fear nothing.”

Note that Faustina that day was making reparation for priests, an offering that brought upon her the worst suffering she had ever endured. But too, on that bitter day of December 17, 1936, was born Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who would later reign as Pope Francis, the 266th pontiff of the Roman Catholic Church.

Could it be that Faustina that day was atoning for the many priests, bishops, and cardinals of the future who would be misled by Francis? But too, could it be that her mysterious torment signaled the arrival of a future anti-pope who would destroy the Faith in the name of “mercy?”

7. Ven. Archbishop Fulton Sheen (1950)

  • The mystical body on earth today will have its Judas Iscariot and he will be the false prophet. Satan will recruit him from among our bishops.”
  • “We are living in the days of the Apocalypse–the last days of our era…. The two great forces of the Mystical Body of Christ and the Mystical Body of Antichrist are beginning to draw up the battle lines for the catastrophic contest.” (Flynn T & L. The Thunder of Justice. Maxkol Communications, Sterling, VA, 1993, p. 20)

He also said:

  • “The False Prophet will have a religion without a cross. A religion without a world to come. A religion to destroy religions. There will be a counterfeit church. Christ’s Church [the Catholic Church] will be one. And the False Prophet will create the other. The false church will be worldly, ecumenical, and global. It will be a loose federation of churches. And religions forming some type of global association. A world parliament of churches. It will be emptied of all divine content and will be the mystical body of the Antichrist.

8. The Revelation from Garabandal that there would be 3 more popes

This claim matches that of the original  St. Malachi prophecy – that the last Pope would be “the glory of the olive” who would be the final pope of this age. This, of course, is Benedict.

Conchita explained that her mention of only three was because she was told one of the original four [John Paul I] would only last for a very short time. She doesn’t count Francis as a pope at all; the prophecies of Our Lady are never inaccurate.

 9.  Fr Gobbi

Message #406, June 13 1989

 “This masonic infiltration, in the interior of the Church, was already foretold to you by Me, at Fatima, when I announced to you that Satan would enter in even to the summit of the Church.”

      • “The first sign is the spread of errors, which lead to the loss of faith and to apostasy. These errors are being propagated by false teachers, by renowned theologians who are no longer teaching the truths of the gospel, but pernicious heresies based on errors and on human reasoning. It is because of the teaching of these errors that the true faith is being lost and that the great apostasy is spreading everywhere.”
      • “First of all, a great apostasy is spreading in every part of the Church, through the lack of faith which is flooding even among its very pastors. Satan has succeeded in spreading everywhere the great apostasy, by means of his subtle work of seduction, which has brought many to be alienated from the truth of the Gospel to follow the fables of the new theological theories and to take delight in evil and in sin, sought after as an actual good.”
      • “This great apostasy is spreading more and more, even through the interior of the Catholic Church. Errors are being taught and spread about, while the fundamental truths of the faith, which the authentic Magisterium of the Church has always taught and energetically defended against any heretical deviation whatsoever, are being denied with impunity.

Some examples of the errors and apostasy that we see today in this pontificate , (mentioned by Our Lady to Fr. Gobbi), include:

Statements of the man sitting on the throne of Peter which include:

            • blasphemy,
            • heretical and scandalizing statements,
            • an inability or rather, refusal to clarify any dogmatic Truth as well as
            • his approval of sinful situations, despite what the Church and Sacred Scripture teaches.

(From “ https://thewildvoice.org/pope-francis-bad-fruits/)

Of the Holy Spirit – ‘Pope Francis’ scandalously claims:

 ‘The Paraclete (the Holy Spirit) creates all the differences among the Churches, almost as if he were an Apostle of Babel.‘   (MARCH 15, 2013, VATICAN )

Of the Most Holy Trinity – ‘Pope Francis’ jokes:

Inside the Holy Trinity they’re all arguing behind closed doors, but on the outside they give the picture of unity.‘   (MARCH 25, 2017 – CRUX)

Of God the Father– ‘Pope Francis’ says:

God cannot be God without man… Let us also think of the Father, of our Father who cannot be without us, and who is watching us at this moment.‘     (JUNE 7, 2017 – ROME REPORTS/VIDEO)

Of the Blessed Virgin Mary – ‘Pope Francis’ says:

She was silent, but in her heart, how many things she told the Lord! ‘You, that day, this and the other that we read, you had told me that he would be great, you had told me that you would have given him the throne of David, his forefather, that he would have reigned forever and now I see him there!’ Our Lady was human! And perhaps she even had the desire to say: ‘Lies! I was deceived!‘ (DECEMBER 20, 2013 – VATICAN RADIO)  

On Jesus Pope Francis said:

‘Pope Francis’ said that Jesus “had to beg forgiveness of his parents and that the Virgin Mary reproached Christ (when lost in the temple)

‘Pope Francis’ taught that the miracle of Jesus multiplying the bread and fish was really just a miracle of “sharing.

Other statements from this pope:

Lost souls do not go to Hell, saying “there is no punishment, but the annihilation of that soul. All the others will participate in the beatitude of living in the presence of the Father. The souls that are annihilated will not take part in that banquet; with the death of the body their journey is finished.

‘Pope Francis’ said that Mother Earth is the one who ‘gave us life and safeguards us‘.

‘Pope Francis’ approved of contraception in certain circumstances.

Francis issued a stamp featuring Luther and put out a document saying Catholics now recognize Martin Luther as a “witness to the Gospel”. The stamp features Luther and Philip Melanchthon,  – one of the founders of Lutheranism. In the image, Luther holds a Bible, and Melanchthon holds a copy of the Augsburg Confession, the primary confession of faith for the Lutheran church.

See: https://cruxnow.com/vatican/2017/11/26/vatican-issues-stamp-featuring-martin-luther-reformation-anniversary/

Pope  criticized large Catholic families, cautioning them against “breeding like rabbits” (Jan 19, 2015)

On Pentecost Sunday – June 8, 2014, he hosted Jewish prayers and Koran readings at the Vatican.

See our previous post at: https://remnantdisciplesjtm.com/category/prophecies-fulfilled/

 Examples of these errors being formally taught:Amoris Laetitia: changes the practice of denying Holy Communion to those who are in ‘irregular unions‘ (divorced and remarried, etc.).

Footnote 351 (Amoris laetitia‘s) granted permission for unrepentant adulterers to commit sacrilege at Mass.

Footnote 329 rips the Second Vatican Council’s Gaudium et spes 51 (concerning temporary abstinence from marital relations) completely out of context in order to argue that “doing it for the children” might mitigate the mortal sin of adultery.

Other Errors:

      1. #AmorisLaetitia ¶3:  “Each country/region can seek solutions better suited to its culture/traditions/local needs”  [aka protestant style federation of (40000+) churches, no central church magisteriurm, relativism]
      2. #AmorisLaetitia ¶297: No one can be condemned for ever [ie, no one goes to hell]
      3. #AmorisLaetitia ¶301:It can no longer simply be said that all those in any irregular situations are living in a state of mortal sin. ” [ie adulterers (divorced/remarried), sodomites, fornicators are not in a state of mortal sin, sin does not exist, and the 6th commandment is washed away]
      4. #AmorisLaetitia footnote #351: “In certain cases this can include the help of the sacraments” [ie adulterers (divorced/remarried), sodomites, fornicators may receive holy communion
      • “The episcopates are maintaining a strange silence and are no longer reactingWhen my Pope speaks with courage and reaffirms with force the truths of the Catholic faith, he is no longer listened to and is even publicly criticized and derided. There is a subtle and diabolical tactic, woven in secrecy by Masonry, which is used today against the Holy Father in order to bring ridicule upon his person and his work and to neutralize his Magisterium.”

(“my Pope” refers to Pope St John Paul II, who was Pope at the time of Fr. Gobbi)

10. Pope Benedict XVI at His Inaugural Address (2013)

“Pray for me, that I may not flee for fear of the wolves”.   

11. Book of Truth

“My beloved Pope Benedict XVI is the last true pope on this Earth“. – (April 12th, 2012)

“They plan to replace the Holy Vicar, Pope Benedict XVI, with a dictator of lies. He will create a new church in league with the antichrist and his group, in order to deceive the world.”(January 18th, 2012)

“One half will believe, out of duty, the need to follow the false prophet, the pope who will follow Pope Benedict XVI.” –(April 10th, 2012)

“They, My daughter, are being sent to prepare God’s children to accept the next pope, who comes after My beloved Vicar, Pope Benedict. This pope may be elected by members within the Catholic Church, but he will be the false prophet. His electors are wolves in sheep’s clothing and are members of the secret Masonic and evil group- led by Satan. This is how Satan will try to destroy My Church. Sadly, he will, this false prophet, attract a large following. Those who oppose him will be persecuted.” -( April 12th, 2012)

“Be assured that it will be the Catholic Church, founded by Me and placed under the command of My beloved apostle, Peter, which will suffer the greatest in the end times.” – (April 12th, 2012)

The Book of Truth reveals aspects which were not revealed in 2000. These were, however, revealed by other saints – such as St Francis of Assisi and Bl. Catherine Emmerich.

Read the message of 26 Jan 2012:  The final secret of Fatima reveals the Truth of Satan’s evil sect entering the Vatican.” 

and the message of  22 Jul 2013 Mother of Salvation: The last secret of Fatima was not revealed, so terrifying was it.”

You can also read both of these as quoted in our last post: “Stumbling Blocks: The Truth about the Third Secret of Fatima.”

In conclusion:

We see that the Third Secret says in part:

1) that the evil sect (Illuminati, Freemasons – Satanists) have entered the Vatican
2) that there will be 2 popes- “two men wearing the crown of Peter”.

Old news for the Remnant Army of Crusaders! I wonder what else does it say?

P.S. What about “My daughter Lucia was silenced by the powers, which control part of the Vatican,..” – This, lending a lot of credence to The “imposter Lucy” allegations.

Cardinal Pell – the story and the prophecy

See Part 1 published 2017https://remnantdisciplesjtm.com/2017/06/30/cardinal-george-pell-is-this-prophecy-about-him/

Cardinal Pell -Conducting an  Ordination in 2011 at St. Mary’s Cathedral

The prophecy:

“My dearly beloved daughter, how My Heart is breaking because of the plight of My sacred servants and the difficult trials which they will have to face because of My enemies. My most esteemed Bishop will be the subject of a terrible miscarriage of Justice. Then, when he has been demonized, many of My sacred servants will be taken to task, should they dare to utter grievances against the new laws, which are not of Me and which they will have to witness being introduced into My Churches. (April 10, 2014 @ 5:22pm).
++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Cardinal Pell’s conviction fulfils this prophecy on many levels.

  • Firstly, it is plausible that he is a most esteemed bishop because he has always striven for Truth, honesty and justice and to be faithful to the Teachings of the Church.
  • Secondly, it is clear that a “terrible miscarriage of justice” is highly likely to have taken place.
  • Thirdly, he was demonised even before the trial through books such as “The Rise and Fall of George Pell” by Louise Milligan and a vilification campaign run by Fairfax media group in both newspapers and on free to air public TV:
For example:
  • the documentary “The Bell Tolls” 2015 aired on 60minutes,
  •  “Loss of Faith” 2002 on same show and
  •  frequent Fairfax media headlines assumed guilt well before he was even on charges that actually held 
The end of the paragraph speaks of “new laws”. As a result of years of media demonising of such a Senior Australian Catholic Church figure, and the coming out of true allegations of child abuse in other churches, the 5 year Royal Commission into Child Abuse in Australia recommended that the Sacrament of Confessional Seal will be subject to a new law which was brought in by the government but directly affected churches: the mandatory reporting of child abuse even when revealed in Confession. This law was announced last year but was due to begin operating by end of March this year. And I imagine, there will be many other laws foisted upon us. It’s a bit coincidental that all this happened around the same time as Pell’s conviction.
Some people might have a problem with the fact that the prophecy uses the word “Bishop” not “Cardinal”. I just thought that all cardinals are bishops first. But I found out that a bishop is an apostolic spiritual charism given by Jesus himself to Peter and the 12 apostles, and handed down through apostolic succession.
They have the charism to make priests , other bishops, and do confirmation, to approve exorcisms etc. A Cardinal is a man-made administrative designation only. There was no such thing as cardinals until the 6th century, and there is no handing down.
The prophecy fits Cardinal Pell and the surrounding circumstances, like a glove. There is no other bishop that quite fits the details of this prophecy in this way, although many priests have been mistreated. We can well imagine that Jesus’ heart would be breaking over the plight of many of his sacred servants at this time and the difficult trials they are facing- in so many ways. Therefore the timing and context also is perfect.

Why Pell was a target:

  • Read our post of 2 years ago when we first connected the dots of this prophecy (see link at top of page)

 

  •  13 Cardinals’ letter at the synod of 2014; his dealings as Bishop in Melbourne and the Catholic Educ. office,…

 

  • and also

“… Cardinal George Pell is the most repellant person imaginable to the so-called ‘lavender mafia’ of powerful left-wing gay bishops in Rome.

Pell is the feisty, plain-spoken son of a heavyweight boxer; he has a track record of financial prudence and he championed the cause of abuse victims long before Rome took the problem seriously.In short, he’s everything the progressive Left and the corrupt Roman curia hate.

And boy, did he make enemies when Pope Francis appointed him to reform the Vatican Bank, one of the most cataclysmically mismanaged financial institutions in the world.

Pell was brought in because he almost single-handedly rescued the Sydney and Melbourne dioceses from bankruptcy, but, as he began to unravel the multi-billion dollar corruption and venality in Rome, he was abruptly– conveniently, you might say – summoned back to Australia to defend himself against sex abuse charges.

The moment he left the Vatican, his bank reforms stalled, and the sinister forces controlling the Catholic church seized the reins again….”

(By well known author Milo Yianopoulos)
  •  In April, 2016, after Pell had engaged the well known auditors of Price, Watwerhouse Cooper to conduct an internal audit, it was announced by the Vatican that these proceedings had been halted and the authority issued by Pell had been revoked.Edward Pentin, a Vatican journalist for the  National Catholic Register, said: “It’s becoming clear that the rigour of the audit in an effort to raise its financial transparency to international standards is unnerving some in the Vatican. From: http://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/apr/2 (as above)
  • Another example is that the Victorian police put an ad. in the newspaper in March 2013 asking for anyone who wants to complain about anything that may have happened at Melbourne Cathedral. There were no complaints as yet.
By Oct 2016, complainants had come forward. Most of the charges were dismissed  – Cardinal Pell was overseas, or living in another town to where the supposed incident took place, etc. They  were out to get him by hook or by crook.  
In October 2016, “It was also revealed that Cardinal Pell had asked for the complainants’ police statements before being interviewed by police…”

The date of the prophecy:

April 2014 – By this time it had been reported that Pell  had discovered the stash of unaccounted for money in the Vatican Bank and called in the highly respected Price- Waterhouse auditors to investigate it. The pope pulled the reins and dismissed the auditors without telling Pell.Two months later he was back in Sydney answering charges.
It seems probable that Pell had discovered something that he was not supposed to. And by October of that year, there were complaints against him.

The guilty verdict.

Every piece of evidence by the prosecution was countered by the  defence. There was no case to answer. Yet the jury unanimously found him guilty . This was the 2nd trial. The first trial was a hung jury with 10 out of the 12 jurors wanting acquittal.

When they said he was going to gaol, he told friends that he was going on “retreat”. People commented on his calm and peaceful demeanour. One journalist said  he was a scapegoat for the sins of the Church; and another described him as “a lamb to the slaughter.” One blogger claims that Cardinal Pell said, “If Jesus wills it, I will accept it.”

Our Bible Reading at our JtM Crusade  Prayer group the next day after the news broke:

“The Beheading of St John the Baptist” We thought that lots of it could be applied to Cardinal Pell. Read it at: https://remnantdisciplesjtm.com/2019/03/05/jtm-crusade-prayer-meeting-thurs-28-feb-2019/

Support for Cardinal Pell:

As soon as the media gag order was removed and Cardinal Pell’s guilty verdict was made public, there was an outcry from people who had a lot to lose – their public positions, their prominent standing in our society. On the other hand there was a definite “blood-lust” and anger from most of the media.

People who spoke up for him after the verdict included:

Former Prime Ministers   –

  • Tony Abbott (a Catholic) and
  • John Howard (Anglican) who praised the man and his character.

Secular journalists            –  

  • Miranda Devine (catholic) who often writes about fishy goings  on  at the Vatican and
  • Andrew Bolt – self-acclaimed agnostic
  • Australian Jesuit priest Fr. Frank Brennan expressed shock at news of the conviction. He himself had many views on the other side of the spectrum to Cardinal Pell.
  • Alan Jones – well known talk-back radio host spoke to a priest who explained the impossibility of what was claimed.
  • George Weigel -, John Paul II’s ­biographer, and  distinguished Senior Fellow of Washington, D.C.’s Ethics and Public Policy Center, where he holds the William E. Simon Chair in Catholic Studies.   
  • Raymond Arroyo on EWTN
  • Father Raymond J. de Souza who is the editor in chief of Convivium magazine.
  • Milo Yiannopoulos – well known author of a book on Vatican corruption.

On  February 28, 2019, LifeSiteNews reported that: “A number of commentators have denounced Cardinal George Pell’s prosecution and conviction of sexual assault as an anti-Catholic witch hunt instigated by media and police.”

Please pray for Cardinal Pell – for the success of the appeal , which could take months. Technically he can’t lose, but these are not normal times and evil forces abound.

Our Lady Help of Christians – Patroness of Australia, pray for Cardinal Pell.

Keep him under your holy mantle for protection and consolation. Amen.

‘Nothing is covered that shall not be revealed,

nor hidden that shall not be known.’ (Matt 10:26)

 

Comment: There are many articles containing the details of the trial and the evidence. The people listed above are good sources of information.

Errors of Laudato Si:

  • Headlines- Lifesite news:

Thu Jun 18, 2015 – 12:43 pm EST: Pope’s encyclical: Pro-climate-change, but anti-population control, pro-life, and anti-gender ideology

Thu Jun 18, 2015 – 8:32 pm EST: Pro-life leaders praise, express concerns about papal environment encyclical

  • From Harvesting the Fruit:

21 June 2015, 16:17 4 63: A giant leap toward formal heresy? 

‘Even now we are journeying towards the sabbath of eternity, the new Jerusalem, towards our common home in heaven. Jesus says: “I make all things new” (Rev 21:5). Eternal life will be a shared experience of awe, in which each creature, resplendently transfigured, will take its rightful place and have something to give those poor men and women who will have been liberated once and for all.’  – Pope Francis, Laudato Si – 243

Here, the pope is plainly misappropriating Sacred Scripture to suggest that all persons, without any qualification or distinction whatsoever, will enjoy eternal beatitude at the end of time.

  • 23 June 2015, 13:32 0 59:“Deeply concerned by the omission from the encyclical letter Laudato Si of a reaffirmation of the Church’s teaching against contraception and on procreation”

Excerpts Patrick Buckley, UN lobbyist for the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC), noted that: “The encyclical calls for increased international environmental action in paragraphs 173-175, while neglecting to prepare Catholics for what such action will undoubtedly involve: renewed attempts to further impose contraception and abortion on the developing world.”

Professor Hans Schellnhuber was among those chosen by the Holy See to present the encyclical to the press …has previously stated that the “carrying capacity of the planet” is “below 1 billion people”. The global population would have to be reduced by more than 80% to meet this target.

John-Henry Westen, co-founder of Voice of the Family and editor-in-chief of LifeSiteNews commented “Professor Schellnhuber is an advocate of the establishment of a supreme global government that would have the power to take action to resolve the perceived environmental crisis, which in his view requires population reduction. In this context the references in the encyclical to the need for a ‘world political authority’, which should have the power to ‘sanction’, is deeply troubling.” (comment by John-Henry Westen, co-founder of Voice of the Family and editor-in-chief of LifeSiteNews)

On 22nd June 2015) it was revealed that Professor Schellnhuber has been appointed a member of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences (PAS) by Pope Francis .

  • “Laudato Si Encyclical validates my greatest fears” in “its embrace and adoption of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development radical agenda” 21 June 2015,

Excerpts from Heartland institute:

The Vatican’s partnering with the United Nations climate agenda is nothing short of an unholy alliance. The papal encyclical, no matter how nuanced it may read, will simply be used as a tool to support UN global warming ‘solutions that are at odds with most Catholic teachings on issues such as abortion, contraception, overpopulation, and helping the poor nations develop. The Vatican appears to be taking an unprecedented step by seemingly endorsing a specific UN climate treaty.

… “Sections 23 and 24 of the draft Encyclical refer to numerous hypothetical disastrous consequences of climate change, or ‘warming.’

  • Francis now pushing Gaia Mother Earth Climate Change in Seminaries 1 June 2016,

Pope Francis in his encyclical “Laudato Si’ “ specifically called on Catholic seminaries to teach about ecology, saying: “It is my hope that our seminaries and houses of formation will provide an education in responsible simplicity of life, in grateful contemplation of God’s world, and in concern for the needs of the poor and the protection of the environment (Paragraph 214).

  • Saint Peter’s Basilica Desecrated

On the 132th December, Feast of the Immaculate Conception, no mention of our Blessed Mother was made, but an environmental and blasphemous light show desecrated the Vatican. There were images of animals, and pagan gods and goddesses  and Buddhist monks.

Some excerpts from Rorate Caeli on 13th Dec. 2015 included:

“… images of gigantic lions, tigers and leopards were superimposed on St. Peter’s, which was built exactly upon the ruins of Nero’s circus, where ferocious wild beasts had [once] devoured Christians.”

Buddhist monks, on the march, seemed to indicate a way of salvation alternate to Christianity. Not one religious symbol, not one reference to Christianity; the Church gave the way to “sovereign nature”.

Environmentalism is presented as a vision of the world which turns this hierarchy upside down, by eliminating God and dethroning man.”

Antonio Socci, in Libero, defined it as ”a Gnostic, Neo-Pagan ‘sceneggiata’ which had a precise ideological, anti-Christian message” , observing that “at St. Peter’s, on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception, the celebration of Mother Earth was preferred to the celebration of the Mother of God, to propagate the dominant ideology, of that climatist and environmentalist’, Neo-Pagan and Neo-Malthusian religion, which is supported by the great powers of the world.”

Socialism, communism

  • See “needs of the poor” quote (above) by pf in Laudate Si Par. 214
  • Pope videos: No 2 Feb 2016 – Care for Creation” mentions the “poverty and the fragility of the planet” which; “requires  ‘another way of managing the economy… conceiving a new way of living, because we need a change that unites us all, free from the slavery of consumerism”
  • The November 2013 Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium  Pope (Francis) focuses on “two great issues that, he says, “will shape the future of humanity.” “These issues are first, the inclusion of the poor in society, and second, peace and social dialogue,” he wrote.
  • The issues pf has mentioned in Laudate Si, Amoris Laetita, in his pope vidoes, etc and briefly mentioned above is a progressive clearing the way and introducing socialist ideas environmentalism, humanism, socialism,  communism and one-world governance as the article below shows:
  • Headline: Why Is the Vatican Pushing Communist Goals? 3 August 2015

[Because Francis is a Marxist and promotes same through a Liberation Theology approach]

This coming November, the Vatican’s Pontifical Academy for Science is holding a workshop intended to figure out how to indoctrinate your children in the Sustainable Development Goals. This comes on the heels of the Vatican nuncio to the United Nations announcing “verbatim” support for the SDGs, and after Catholic Relief Services president, Dr. Carolyn Woo echoed Pope Francis’ call for support for the SDGs as well.

So, what are the Sustainable Development Goals? They’re a United Nations plan for the creation of a global socialist utopia thinly disguised as a poverty reduction program. In short, the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are the first step in achieving several of the goals laid out in Karl Marx’s Communist Manifesto….. Here’s a snap-shop of how specific portions of the SDGs line up with identified Communist goals:

(Some of the) Sustainable Development Goals

  • Goal 1. End poverty in all its forms everywhere
    • Communists have always used the plight of the poor as justification for the implementation of their nefarious schemes
  • Goal 5. Achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls
    • Communism has pushed for working women since the beginning of the Revolution in Russia.
  • Goal 8. Promote sustained, inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all
    • Plank 8 of the Communist Manifesto: Equal liability of all to work. Establishment of industrial armies, especially for agriculture.
  • Goal 17. Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development
    • This is pure global governance orchestrated by an entity with authority above national sovereignty.

(In her article, I have emphasized the ideas and concepts which Pf has very obviously been pushing which is very clearly a link to socialism and communism and the one-world government, which is communism’s goal).

In this article Dr Anca-Maria describes communism and it’s marxist ideologies and it’s attack on western culture. She describes the history of attacks on society from the legalization of abortion by Lenin back in 1920, no-fault divorce, radical sexual education, gay rights movement. She describes  howMarx expresses a profound hatred for God and for the entire human race. Marx doesn’t deny God’s existence, he is jealous of God; he hates Him and wants to take His place …. , and testimonies about strange ceremonies that Marx used to perform in his house, all of which indicate that he was definitely a worshiper of the devil.”

She sums up the threats into two categories:

  1. The war against family and against innocent human life and
  2. The Church and the war against family and innocent human life

Excerpts are below:

“The attack against the family and human life is part of a wider revolutionary attempt to re-design human society and human nature.

Our Lady of Fatima warned against “Russia’s errors”, which would spread all over the world.  And that is what happened since 1917.

The basic idea is the same as the serpent’s proposal to Adam and Eve, to eat the forbidden fruit, to ignore God’s commandment – “the day you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil” (Gen 3:5).

 “The Popes have constantly condemned communism since its earliest days. Pius IX, Leo XIII, Pius XI and Pius XII have all radically rejected communism. And they have also explicitly warned that communism was a threat to the family.

 “And the Second Vatican Council did not issue a condemnation of communismin spite of the fact that many Council Fathers had insisted for it.

But Pope John XXIII said the Church in his time preferred mercy and was not going to pronounce condemnations.”

“In the Catholic Social Doctrine after Vatican II, the rejection of Marxism became less radical, at the same time as hostility to economic freedom increased. The language of the encyclicals moved from normal Christian language to ideologically contaminated media language.

 “Let your yes mean yes, and your no mean no. Anything more than this comes from the evil one. (Mt 5:37)”

“The shepherds’ duty is to make this distinction clear.

They should preach the Kingdom of God and His justice, not socialist “justice”, understood as government control over economy, or income redistribution.

They should preach peace as offered by Christ, not as stated by the UN.”

“The Church shepherds should preach real freedom, which is liberation from sin, from the slavery of Satan. Veritas liberabit vos. Real freedom means salvation, and thus can never be bad or excessive.”

“The real priority for the Church should be to lead us in the spiritual battle, to save souls, to tell the whole world, now that we have just one year left until the centenary of Fatima:

“Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near.” (Mt 3:2) The Kingdom of God, which is not from this world.
