(Rome) The Slovak Curial Cardinal Jozef Tomko died yesterday in Rome at the age of 98. He was the oldest living cardinal in the world.
Tomko died at his home in Rome, where he was being cared for by the Sisters of Charity of Saint Vincent de Paul. After being admitted to the Pontifical University Hospital Gemelli on June 25 for a cervical spine injury, he spent six weeks in the hospital and was cared for at home from Saturday August 6. During his hospital stay, he received a visit from Cardinal Secretary of State Pietro Parolin, VaticanNews reported.
In a November 2000 interview with Inside The Vatican Magazine, it was revealed that it was Jozef Tomko who had advised Pope John Paul II to treat Russia differently than Our Lady of Fatima would have liked, at the 1984 consecration of the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary in St. Peter's Square. Although Tomko's name was not mentioned in the magazine, he was later identified as the advisor mentioned. Apparently, Tomko, who was made a cardinal the following year, acted out of supposed "prudence" so as not to irritate the Soviet bear.
Jozef Tomko, born in 1924, was studying in Rome at the end of the war. Because of the communist takeover of power in the Czechoslovak Republic, which was reestablished after the Second World War, he remained in the Eternal City, where he was ordained a priest in 1949 and received a triple doctorate from the Pontifical Gregorian University: doctorate in theology, canon law and social sciences.

From 1950 he was Vice Rector of the Pontifical Collegium Nepomucenum. After the First World War, all candidates for the priesthood from the Czechoslovak Republic studied there, as did the German Bohemians and German Moravians until 1938. Since the separation of Slovakia, the Czech Bishops' Conference has been responsible for the facility. The Nepomucenum, named after John Nepomuk, the Czech saint best known in the universal Church, became an important center for the persecuted Church behind the Iron Curtain and a repository for information on the situation in the communist states, particularly Czechoslovakia, under Tomko.
From 1959 Tomko also worked at the Roman Curia, first for the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, then for the Congregation for Bishops. In 1965 he was withdrawn from the Nepomucenum due to the reorientation of Vatican foreign policy. From 1970 taught as a professor at the Gregoriana. In 1979, Pope John Paul II, who had known the exiled Slovak for years, made him titular archbishop and appointed him general secretary of the synod of bishops. This promotion of Tomko, who was described by communist news services as a “staunch anti-communist”, was one of several signals John Paul II sent towards the Eastern bloc at the very beginning of his pontificate. All in all, Tomko was considered a “close confidant” of the Polish Pope, as the secret service of the then People’s Republic of Hungary reported to Budapest.
In retrospect it is interesting that even Tomko, a man who was so well informed about the situation in the Czech and Slovak churches, was only a limited supporter of the underground Church there. He harbored doubts that the underground priests could reach the majority of the population, limited in the cities and scarcely in the countryside.
Finally, in 1985, the Polish Pope created him a cardinal and appointed him Prefect of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples (Propaganda Fide), a task he held for three terms. From 2001 he became President of the Pontifical Committee for the World Eucharistic Congresses.
Under Benedict XVI due to old age, Tomko no longer held any active posts in the Curia, but he was the Pope's special envoy on several occasions. Although Tomko was a cardinal for 37 years, he never participated in a conclave as a papal elector.
The cardinal was a member of both the 2010-2012 active Ruini Commission investigating the Medjugorje phenomenon and the Commission investigating Vatileaks. Both commissions were established by Pope Benedict XVI.
With the death of Cardinal Jozef Tomko, Cardinal Alexandre do Nascimento, born in 1925 and Archbishop Emeritus of Luanda in Angola, is now the oldest living cardinal in the world.
Requiescat in pace.

There are Jewish conservatives, doncha know.
[Washington Times] Ben Shapiro said Friday that pro-Trump rioters should rot in prison for attacking the U.S. Capitol, contrasting himself with other prominent conservatives who recently complained about their incarceration.
Mr. Shapiro, an author, podcast host and co-founder of The Daily Wire conservative news website, made the remark during a panel discussion on the latest episode of the HBO show “Real Time with Bill Maher”.
Fellow panelist Malcolm Nance said during the show that former President Trump mobilized 40,000 “to lay siege to the Capitol,” but only a fraction of that figure breached the building, Mr. Shapiro noted.
Cinema time! Graphic and horrific scenes.

Edit: although various Jewish organizations openly attack the Catholic Church and sometimes even say it should be shut down, maybe it’s time to shut something else down, considering that child abuse by Rabbis is so widespread it could be called an epidemic.
Why don’t all those alleged Catholic gatekeepers like Taylor Marshall, Thug Gordon, Marcy Shea, Eve Tushnet, Dawn Eden, Simcha Fischer, Holy Soy Skojack, Gary Voris, Budgie, Dale Alquist and Sciambra among a host of others, say absolutely nothing about these vermin who openly commit these crimes, often with impunity?

Edit: while the likes of Mark Shea and the rest of the lowlifes at Patheos are embracing the Satanic aberrosexual vision of Cardinal Bernardin, this woman is literally winning people over to the pro-life position by her feminizing insanity.
It brings to mind the story of Pentheus, the King of Thebes, who laments the fall of Thebes to the spell of the god Dionysios. As he attempts to confront the revels of the Bacchanalia, he is torn to pieces by his mother anb her sisters in a frenzy of madness, thinking him a wild boar. His mother only realizes what she’s done when she awakens from the trance and sees her son’s head in her hands.
One of the most interesting things I’ve read in a while.
Edit: I was in the process of lifting some articles from katholisches.info and the end of the month hit. Now the content is behind a wall till he gets €2000. Please consider donating monthly.
I’m asking you to support Mr. Nardi because in contrast to other online personalities, he is actually in tune with the sensus catolicus.

He was always so worried about what the Lutheran and Presbyterian neighbors would think. But that didn’t stop him from engaging in the usual smarmy Neocatholic behavior by doxxing a former friend who lightly ridiculed him on Angelqueen.
Keating has routinely attacked traditionalists for decades, whether he’s arguing for the superiority of the evil King James Version of the Bible over the Douay-Rheims, or trying to gatekeep what types of traditionalists he approves. Apparently, he never really liked Catholicism, but saw a business opportunity in attacking it from within. As ever, like many other professional Catholics, he got some real straw dummies set up to represent the traditionalists who were the classic bad guys. But it was pure projection.
Now that Karl has retired, he can appear on people’s Facebook pages to gatekeep the miracles and apparitions they believe in. Karl thinks the miraculous staircase of Loretto isn’t a real miracle and to believe in it is credulity. Here’s Karl attacking someone’s “credulity” on Facebook, but what’s credulous are Karl’s paypigs who’ve been paying this smug popinjay to deceive them.
Karl doesn’t believe in miracles. He’s a skeptical Protestant who doesn’t think these will fit in his Catholic business plan.

Catholic doctor and family man Alban Gervaise was buried on June 7 after an Islamist stabbed him in front of his children's school.
Islamic Violence is part of daily life in France
(Paris) A magazine denounced the "epidemic of stabbings" sweeping France without the media taking any notice. The “new normal” is migration-related violence. However, “political correctness” prohibits reporting and speaking about it. Anyone who does it will be pilloried. Along with the “stabbing epidemic” comes an epidemic of political hypocrisy. The latter made the former possible. The post-war construct called "Western Europe" is stuck in a vicious circle from which it apparently does not know how to free itself.
In its current issue, the monthly magazine Causeur laments the great fear of “insulting Muslims” when denouncing jihadism and jihadists. This fear is not a natural phenomenon, but a screw clamp in the head that is attached by ideologues.
"Silence, on égorge" is the shocking headline. Causeur wants to break the media silence that envelops Islamist attacks as if with anesthesia so that he does not have to face the reality of radical Islam.
It's about "prioritizing". The alliance of left-liberal establishment and left-wing infantry that followed the collapse of the Iron Curtain in Western Europe is also pursuing its goals at the price of endangering internal security and social peace in the European states. The migration, climate, corona and sanctions policies show it.
"Alban Gervaise has died twice"
Front page of the current issue of Causeur
Causeur's editor, Élisabeth Lévy, recalls the tragedy of the Catholic doctor and family man who, just 40 years old, was killed "in the name of Allah" in front of his children's school last May and forgotten by "dedicated" columnists. The death of Alban Gervaise, which occurred in hospital after weeks of agony, is one of the "unspoken Islamist killings," Causeur said.
"Alban Gervaise has died twice: his throat slashed by his killer's knife and buried by his country's silence."
"If we have decided to dedicate the cover to him, it is because we want to right an injustice, but also because his death occurred at the crossroads of two French tragedies: the first is the war that has declared us invisible enemies ; the second is the startling denial of the first,” says Élisabeth Lévy.
Islamist terrorism swept to Europe in 2004, when bombings killed 192 people in Madrid, leading to the fall of the conservative government. In Europe, it is a phenomenon that cannot be classified in the previously known theories of terrorism. References to Islamist terrorist organizations such as al-Qaeda and the Islamic State (IS) were misleading from the start. The Islamic State (IS), as it became known in the media for its military operations in the Middle East, was a product of the Obama administration and some Middle Eastern potentates. It was eliminated because Donald Trump ended US support after his election and Putin's Russian forces defeated it militarily.
Some of the perpetrators operating in Europe may have taken their cues from the terrorist groups mentioned, but a direct connection could not be proven. It was the phenomenon of “lone wolves”. Islam's inherent willingness to use violence called jihad made it possible. This willingness to use violence, which nobody recognized and described more accurately than G. K. Chesterton at the beginning of the 20th century, also produces the Islamist everyday violence that has afflicted Western Europe for several years. This brutal everyday violence had never existed in Europe before. Their return is a direct product of unrestrained mass immigration, which in turn is the ideological product of that alliance. The cities are becoming less safe, the streets more and more dangerous. Women in particular pay the price. But you hardly talk about it anymore, because you are not allowed to talk about it anymore. The Corona muzzle is the defining symbol of this mental and moral distortion of public discourse. It is not the migration-related violence that causes public unrest, but those who draw attention to it, claim the deniers of reality and impose bans on speaking.
The slitting of the throat while shouting "Allahu Akbar" is no longer a headline in France, at best a small notice. The writer and journalist Éric Zemmour tried to rebel and ran for president. With this he caused quite a stir. In polls, he immediately reached third place. At the polls, however, he only received seven percent. They symbolize the successful containment of his advance.
The long list of secret violence
The Gervaise case is particularly spectacular, but one has only to flip through the pages of Fdesouche.com, which reports weekly on Islamist-motivated attacks, to realize how oppressive the cloak of silence is.
On June 20, in Rodez, Aveyron department, a man armed with two knives tried to enter a police station and attack officers. Unsuccessful, he changed his target and stabbed the manager of the pizzeria next door in the jugular.
On July 5, an Afghan national beat police officers in Rennes and tried to cut the throat of the man who tried to stop him.
In Trappes, on July 10, a pensioner was attacked and stabbed in the neck and chest: he died the next day.
On July 11, an Eritrean who found refuge in France as a "refugee" tried to stab two women in the center of the southern French city of Montpellier.
So that's a small excerpt of the "stabbing epidemic" that is spreading in France and is becoming more and more worrying, even if the state and left-wing opinion controllers pretend not to see it. As in other areas, they have come up with a language rule: the attacker is simply labeled as a "madman", although, as in the Gervaise case, he invokes Allah, a Koran was found in his backpack and videos on his computer were found that pay homage to jihad. The anti-terror prosecutor's office did not initiate any investigations into Mohamed L. either.
So many Muslims now live in France that politicians have long had to compete for their votes and are simply afraid of them. In most cases, the fear may be unfounded. But it is there and determines their decisions. The Corona years have shown what fear can do. These are not the prerequisites that should be the basis for the community of a free constitutional state. In addition: This state was brought about by someone. In 1950 around 120,000 Muslims (0.3 percent) lived in France; today their number is estimated at nine million (15 percent). Their number has more than doubled in the past 25 years.
The denial of Islamism
The Editor-in-Chief of Causeur writes:
“We are well aware of the reason for this silence: Muslims should not be stigmatized. But isn't refusing to talk about jihadism as if they're all a part of it the best way to stigmatize them? Are they children from whom we must hide the truth in order not to offend them? Should we exclude them from contemplating a phenomenon that comes from Islam without being confused with it? If the attack takes place on the eve of elections, it is also said that one should not 'stoke fears'. Heaven save us from the voters making an informed choice.”
The denial of the reality of everyday Islamism, which Gilles Kepel calls "atmospheric jihadism," is one of the greatest ills of French society. [It's holocaust culture that creates this problem in the first place.] A serious symptom of the real problem.

(Ottawa) On the third day of his visit to Canada, Pope Francis preached against the "dead faith of the living" at Mass at Commonwealth Stadium in Edmonton. He did not mean pagan religions, but turned again against "traditionalism".
Through the neologisms "indietrism" (backward looking) and "indietrists" (backward looking) coined by Francis, he gives his criticism a clear addressee. What is meant are priests and laymen who are linked to tradition, as Francis recently clarified.
The renewed scolding of tradition came while in the neighboring United States, leading Bergoglians among the bishops, invoking Pope Francis' motu proprio Traditionis custodes, are suppressing the traditional rite and restricting communities associated with tradition.
In his sermon Francis said (in the video of the transmission of the Mass from around minute 48:20):
“And let us not forget that this life-giving movement extends from the roots to the branches, leaves, flowers and fruit of the tree. True tradition is expressed in this vertical dimension: from bottom to top. Let us be careful not to fall into the caricature of tradition, which does not move in a vertical line - from the roots to the fruits - but in a horizontal line - forwards/backwards - that leads us to the culture of "Indietrism"[ backwardness] as a selfish haven; and which does nothing else than encapsulate the present and keep it in the logic of 'it's always been done that way'.
In the Gospel that we have heard, Jesus tells the disciples that they are blessed because they can see and hear what so many prophets and righteous could only wish for (cf. Mt 13:16-17). Many had believed in God's promise of the Messiah, preparing the way for him and announcing his coming. But now that the Messiah has come, those who can see and hear him are called to welcome and proclaim him.
Brothers and sisters, this also applies to us. Those who have gone before us have passed on to us a passion, a strength and a desire, a fire that we must rekindle; it's not about preserving ashes, but about rekindling the fire they started. Our grandparents and elders wished for a more just, brotherly and solidary world and fought for us to have a future. Now it's up to us not to disappoint them. It is up to us to take up this tradition that we have received, because tradition is the living faith of our dead. Please, let's not go into traditionalism, which, as one thinker said, is the dead faith of the living. Leaning on them, on our fathers who are our roots, it is up to us to bear fruit. We are the branches that must flourish in history and sow new seeds. So let us ask ourselves a specific question: what am I doing in the light of the history of salvation to which I belong and of those who have gone before me and loved me? I have a unique and irreplaceable role in history: what mark do I leave, what do I do, what do I leave to those who follow me, what do I give of myself? So often we measure life by the money we make, the careers we make, the success and recognition we receive from others. However, these are not generative criteria. The question is: am I creating something? Am I creating life? Am I bringing a new and renewed love to the story? Am I preaching the gospel where I live, ministering freely as my predecessors did to me? What am I doing for my church, my city and my society? Brothers and sisters, it is easy to criticize, but the Lord not only wants us to be critics of the system, he does not want us to be closed, he does not want us to be "indietrists" who withdraw like him Hebrews says (cf. 10:39), but wants us to be artisans of a new history, weavers of hope, builders of the future, peacemakers.”

Edit: what a shameless scam artist.
MASKWACIS, Alberta (AP) — Pope Francis arrived Monday at the site of a former Indigenous residential school to deliver long-awaited apology for the Catholic Church’s role in Canada’s policy of forcibly assimilating Native peoples into Christian society that led to generations of trauma and abuse.

Israeli Professor Josh Guetzkow, through a Freedom of Information (FOIA) request, received an admission from the CDC that they had not evaluated any “signals” from its vaccine data system called VAERS even though it is their own system and they write on their website about how they make use of it. On a broader scope, this reconfirms what I have written, along with my wife Ginger, in our book, COVID-19 and the Global Predators: We Are the Prey.
