His Satanic Majesty

Edit: another thing that Malachi Martin was right about. I’m wondering, did it really take this long for  Andrew Greeley’s Dead man’s switch to get turned on, or is this from another source? I expect many of the powerful men Greeley claims to have identified as sexual predators are dead.

Meanwhile, what of characters like Bishop Robert Baron who drew so much support and inspiration from Bernardin?

Cardinal George said his first successor would be put in jail and the rest would be put to death by the State.

There are many reasons why the church didn't report crimes to various government authorities. Some of the reasons are clearly evil. However some are because reporting these things to some governments would be used by governments to shut down the Church and incarcerate or put to death some innocent people. Example: Why would a church that was illegal in the state constitution of Massachusetts report crimes to that state. How would China conduct an investigation and trial of an accused Christian today? Knowing what China would do to the church and the accused may change how you would handle the situation.

Cardinal Francis George surely did say that. However, he had an entirely different meaning to that which is now happening. He believed that his successor would be a holy man in the light of Pope John Paul II and be persecuted for the faith. Boy, did he get it wrong.---For some reason (I believe that it is jealousy), Dr. Taylor Marshall does not like Malachi Martin. In a one hour plus discussion, he accuses him of being little more than an opportunist. He even accuses him of lying about the Third Secret and stated that he only put out hearsay instead of reading the Portuguese Document in its entirety.

The only thing Catholics can count on any longer is Jesus Christ and Our Lady. We have for generations put our faith in the Catholic Church and it is going to take generations for us to come to terms with the reality that the church has been almost entirely taken over by apostates and demons. Looking at what we see, boys and young men subjected to homosexual predators aided and abetted by the hierarchy, now a pope who has been nothing but an apostate from the beginning of his dodgy papacy, now says we must turn to the freaking Amazonian heathens and bring in shamanism, worship of ecology, Islam, Judaism. One hates to be dismal, but let's face it, it's far gone, all of it. All we have left is Christ and His Mother, and our bibles and the Rosary. Bad times. But it should be enough. God help us.

One good thing is that the Italians by the millions are turning away from the Bergoglio Catholic Church and Vatican. He is ranking among the most hated men in Italy right now. The Italians are sick of him, his preaching heresy and about migrants, and his Vatican and people.
The Cardinals (including Bagnasco) are a pile of horse manure for letting it go this far without stopping/condemning Francis and his agenda.

Which is why some good bishops etc. should start up a temporary/replacement Pope/Vatican/Catholic Church somewhere...preferably in Europe....maybe a city the size of Florence....and make a copy of Rome a la 1950 or so.

What we need is a new Pope who is a Catholic. If he's a substitute Pope, that's fine too.

Cathleen 1031 -

I've read your comments off and on here and other sites. I admire and am a bit jealous of your faith and how you seem to push thru all these disasters.

I've not been able to. I stopped attending Mass a few months back. Even the most orthodox NO Mass had become a source of frustration and anger. I just could not take the sadness anymore. I would either keep my eyes on Jesus on the cross or close my eyes and pray the rosary. I have attended the TLM. But, there is no TLM in the diocese and the closest SSPX chapel is 40 miles one way. Sorry I just dont have a reliable way to get there. No ICK either.

If I could just get to a decent Sunday Mass, I would be okay. But, I just cant face the ranges from heresy to mild abuse.

The Schism is coming anyway. Better to be the "actor" in the drama and not the "reactor".
Arrest this idiot on the Papal throne and put him on the first plane to Argentina, at gunpoint if necessary. (Don't worry, there will be no violence against him. He will flap his jaws in protest, but Jorge is no martyr.)
He can set up his counter church in Argentina if he wants to. James Martin can fly down on his fairy wings and be his Secretary of State.
This constant drip-drip-drip of daily heresy is ridiculous.
It is time to end it, decisively.

The real question is: In which form came whatever of inspiration from Bernardin to Barron?! How close they were in real life?

PW said...

More piss and wind from the gormless, long distant grizzle guts brigade.

Tancred said...

More intellectual confetti from the devotee of the clown Mass.

PW said...

Yes, the SSPX are a worry, aren't they?

Tancred said...

What worries me are the monsters who claim to be successors of the apostles.

Peter Watson said...

Yes, Tancred. Around 110 AD, Ignatius of Antioch in a letter to the Christians at Smyrna exhorted them to treat the presbyters (the elders) as the 'college of apostles.' Sometime after Ignatius, there was an enormous identity theft that involved the episkopoi (community business managers/overseers)defrauding the elders of their title and authority in the community.
The larceny, in its many forms, has never stopped.

Tancred said...

But what I do, that I will do: that I may cut off the occasion from them that desire occasion: that wherein they glory, they may be found even as we. For such false apostles are deceitful workmen, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no wonder: for Satan himself transformeth himself into an angel of light. Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers be transformed as the ministers of justice, whose end shall be according to their works.

Michael Dowd said...

The game is: Who can you trust? To me Bishop Baron is somewhat of an equivocator, dissembler, and people-pleaser like many Bishops.

Frankly, it is hard to have faith in most Bishops given most have are silent about sexual predation and homosexuality in the priesthood. Then there is the matter of Protestantizing the Catholic faith whereby there's hardly a dimes worth of difference between key moral issues like homosexuality, abortion, per-marital sex, divorce, contraception, etc.

gm said...

I agree, fasten your seatbelts it's going to be wild ride for Catholics in the next few years of Pope Modernism on steroids. The German bishops are locked and loaded, and have said as soon as the first seminary class of Amizonian married priests graduate, they will begin to do the same.

gm said...

@Peter Watson, yes, and I agree with that great saint, but Ignatius was not referring to the Apostle Judus- the betrayer of Our Lord, which is what we are dealing with today.

¨There are many reasons why the church didn't report crimes to various government authorities.¨

NSA and other ¨foreign¨ agencies have files of all phone record, data, internet files on

Church such as the bad Priests. Certaintly they knew and waited till the right moment.

They worked in tandem with the Mainstream Media. Undoubtedly the good Priests are more

monitored than the bad Priests.

Been in your position.The Church commands that we fulfill our Sunday obligation by attending the Mass, but She must also provide us with that Mass. Many Sundays were spent in holy reading and listening to holy sermons in an effort to make holy the Lord’s Day. The nearest real Mass was 4 hours away and gas was almost $4 a gallon. It seemed impossible. But the decision was made to give the whole day to God and trust in His providence. This we did for the next eight years until we could move, and when we moved we made sure we went where we could have the Mass. The Holy Mass and all our beautiful Sacraments are now only 20 minutes away, praise God! I will keep you in my prayers, newguy40. I will offer my next five Holy Communions for you that God provide you with a way to get to Mass at least once a month. God bless you, sir. You are loved.

Tancred said...

Cardinal Bernardin as Barron himself says, was his mentor.

Anonymous said...

Greely was quoted verbatim in a newspaper circa mid 70's.
Greely was asked about
Replacements for long standing Cardinal of Chicago who was old.
"Let's place Bernardin up here,he'll get this sh*t goin in no time!"
Asked to specify his odd reply,Greely mumbled about modernizations and updated alterations.
Is it possible that odd vulgar comment indicated demonic obsession or oppression?
Given what was subsequently revealed about Bernardin's time in Chicago,it seems possible.


Tancred said...

Nice catch, but Greeley later cooled to Bernardin and even suggested that he had something to do with the degenerate subculture and said he was also an aberrosexual.

Tancred said...

Well worth the read

In doing research on the Maronites of Lebanon that they descend from a visit from St. Peter to Antioch. In something like 686, John Maron was the first modern day Patriarch of Antioch. Hence the term, Maronites.---Danny Thomas (think St. Jude Hospital) along with his daughter Marlo is technically an Arab as is Doug Flutie with their being of Lebanese Christian heritage.
