The two wanted to protect the population from the harmful effects of the 5G network, which a spokesman for the monastery considers a worthy motive.
Lyon (kath.net/LifeSiteNews/mk) Two Capuchin friars are said to have tried to light up two 5G antennas a few weeks ago near Lyon, France. The first antenna was damaged, which even caused temporary disruptions at Orange, and on the second offense, the monks were arrested by the police. They belong to the Capuchin monastery in Villié-Morgon, which is close to the SSPX and which also houses their former district superior, Father Régis de Cacqueray.
The two monks were brought before the judge for "vandalism and attempted arson" and are now under judicial supervision until their criminal proceedings. They defended themselves in court by saying that they wanted to protect the population from the harmful effects of the 5G network. The local mayor described the matter as sad, especially since there is a chapel adjacent to one of the antennas. The superior of the monastery was also “astonished and saddened”. Another spokesman for the monastery called the act a youthful error and emphasized the worthy motives: "These waves are very harmful to human health, and they wanted to do something good for humanity."
Many suspect that 5G could be harmful to health, and some scientists have also raised serious concerns about increased cancer risk and genetic damage. The competent French authority recently said that there was no evidence of health impairments.
Hamburg / Rome. The Archbishop of Hamburg, Stefan Heße, appeared in front of the cameras on March 18 with a serious expression and offered to resign. A few hours earlier he had been incriminated by the expert Björn Gercke. On behalf of Cardinal Rainer Maria Woelki, Gercke had investigated whether those responsible for the Archdiocese of Cologne had covered up the sexual abuse of children by priests in the past.
One of the people in charge who had been checked by Gercke was Heße, formerly head of personnel and then vicar general (head of administration) in Cologne. The result: Gercke accused Heße of breaching duty eleven times.
Heße then declared: “I have to and want to accept the consequences from my actions at that time and ultimately also from the breaches of duty I am accused of.” But that will not happen now: Because Pope Francis does not accept the resignation. Hesse remains in office.
Pope: Mistakes are not intentional
It is not as if the Pope doubts Gercke's research results. No, he too sees “deficiencies in the organization and functioning of the Archbishop's General Vicariate as well as personal procedural errors from Hesse”. However, the investigation did not show that these errors were "committed with the intention of covering up cases of sexual abuse". So the Pope says: Hesse made mistakes - but it wasn't on purpose.
The effects of this decision on the Catholic Church in Germany are likely to be enormous. Not only the reform movement “We are Church” is now wondering “why people in Church leadership services are then held accountable at all.” The canon lawyer Thomas Schüller criticizes: "This is a slap in the face for the victims of sexual violence, because they have to gain the impression again that no one will be held accountable for their misconduct."
The theologian Daniel Bogner speaks of the “unreasonable”: “The fateful signal is that the reason for the resignation is not regarded as so serious.” This prevents a public official from facing up to his responsibility and this through a publicly visible step such as document a resignation. "This is very bad news for a religious community in whose message the individual person and their conviction of conscience are very important."
The procedure is reminiscent of the decision on Cardinal Marx
The Pope's actions are reminiscent of his decision in June to also refuse the resignation of the Munich Cardinal Reinhard Marx. The two cases are different. In contrast to Heße, Marx was not personally accused, he rather wanted to take on responsibility for the system, as it were. Since Marx is seen by many German Catholics as an enlightener and innovator, the Pope's decision at the time could still be seen as support for a reform course.

Don Diego Ravelli, the Pope's new master of ceremonies, with Francis.
(Rome) Next Sunday, Pope Francis will consecrate his previous master of ceremonies Guido Marini as bishop. On August 29th, Marini was appointed Bishop of Tortona in Liguria by Francis. The "most modern" of the previous Masters will be his successor.
Yesterday the Holy See announced the appointment of Marini's successor as the Pope's Master of Ceremonies. Don Diego Giovanni Ravelli assumes this position. Ravelli has been the ceremonial officer in the Office for the Liturgical Celebrations of the Pope since 2006, appointed by Pope Benedict XVI. He had already been called in by the then master of ceremonies Piero Marini as an auxiliary MC. The appointment as ceremonial took place under the leadership of Piero Marini. Ravelli is therefore also considered to be the “most modern” among the ceremonies. What is meant is that he is closer to the style of his teacher Piero Marini, a Bugnini student. This style is seen as “sober” and, above all, not associated with any attachment to liturgical tradition. As early as 2017, Ravelli was under discussion as a possible successor to Guido Marini. An appointment date has even been passed around, December 7th of that year. Four years later, the time has come.
Don Ravelli comes from the Archdiocese of Milan. He was ordained a priest in 1991 for the Priestly Association of Priests of the Crucified Jesus. In 1998 he was called to the Apostolic Alms Administration. His incardination in the suburbicarian diocese of Velletri-Segni should also fall during this time. He also studied pedagogy at the Pontifical Salesian University.
He studied liturgical sciences at the Pontifical Athenaeum Sant’Anselmo, where he received his doctorate in 2010. In liturgical questions there is no getting around Sant’Anselmo under Pope Francis.
In 2013 he was appointed office manager of the Apostolic Alms Administration by Pope Francis.
Don Ravelli has been papal master of ceremonies since yesterday and is therefore also responsible for the papal choir of the Sistine Chapel.
In 2019, Pope Francis incorporated the choir, which organizes the papal liturgical celebrations musically, into the Office for the Pope's liturgical celebrations.
Also yesterday the Vatican diplomat Don Cristiano Antonietti, Nunciature Secretary who works in the General Affairs Department of the State Secretariat, was appointed Papal Ceremonial. It takes up the space vacated by Ravelli's promotion.

|The Tomb of Saint Cristoforo in Seville|
Edit: don’t be ashamed of the achievements of your ancestors just because a few outsiders who want you dead and your children enslaved want to disparage him like the demons they are.
Christopher Columbus was an intrepid man of action who bore Christ over the Atlantic to savage people enshrouded in the savagery of murder and darkness. Despite many setbacks his faith didn’t waver and he returned to his mission four times. We owe him a great deal.
There was a cause for canonization set up at Vatican I and the same people who want you dead objected to it then. Don’t let these small hats destroy your heritage and religion!

Google translate from Italian link to “Art Vibes”:
Between pain and meditation a new tale of JAGO's contemporaneity: the new sculptural installation is dedicated to the theme of the “Pietà”.
by Art Vibes editorial staff
Picture: JAGO - Pietà, installation at the Basilica of Santa Maria in Montesanto, Rome.
Sixteen months of work in Naples, in the studio of Sant'Aspreno ai Crociferi, for a work that is not the simple re-proposition of the famous biblical episode, but a modern reworking of a moment of meditation and pain, in which the humanity has identified itself for centuries.
The last work of the sculptor JAGO is therefore dedicated to the theme of the "Pietà" and will be inaugurated on Friday 1 October 2021 at the Basilica of Santa Maria in Montesanto in Rome.
The installation, curated by Tommaso Zijno and organized together with the partners Studio Arte 15, FERCAM Fine Art and P.L. Ferrari, is part of the project "A door to infinity" - man and the Absolute in art, within the cycle of Art and Liturgy, promoted by the Rector Monsignor Walter Insero [Chaplain of Francis], which sees in the Church of the Artists a space of dialogue between contemporary art and spirituality.
IAGO - BIOGRAPHICAL NOTES
JAGO is an Italian artist who works in the field of sculpture and video production. He was born in Frosinone in 1987, where he attended art high school and then the Academy of Fine Arts (left in 2010). He is an independent and multifaceted artist who has managed to combine artistic talent and communication skills, earning the appellation of "social artist".
His artistic research has its roots in the techniques inherited from the masters of the Renaissance: he uses a traditional material, marble, to tell the stories of our contemporaneity. What drives it is the will to innovate, taking an example from the lessons of the past.

The guillotine was the murder machine of the French Revolution. The royal couple also fell victim to her.
[Katholisches] On June 21, 1791, Marie Antoinette and her entire family were arrested and placed under house arrest in the Tuileries Palace. In the summer of 1792 she were thrown into a dungeon and her husband, King Louis XVI. (1774–1791 / 92), was executed January 1793. Her son, Crown Prince Louis Charles, who was only seven years old, had been taken away from her. The child was tortured by the revolutionaries to obtain a "confession" for defamatory charges against the queen. He would only survive the parents for a short time. The Dauphin, who was named Louis XVII by the monarchists, died at the age of ten. He expired in the Paris Temple prison on the conditions of detention.
His mother, who never took part in government affairs, was initially locked up in this prison, which the revolutionaries had set up in the former Grand Master's seat of the Knights Templar. In the summer of 1793 Marie Antoinette was transferred to the Conciergerie Prison and thus separated from her daughter. In a farce trial, she, who was addressed as "Widow Capet", was tried. The death sentence was already fixed. The handpicked jury unanimously approved it. On October 16, 1793, the queen was guillotined.
Few characters in history are more distorted in the collective memory, which proves the long-lasting effect of malicious propaganda tales. As the Austrian archduchess and daughter of the emperor, Marie Antoinette was hated by parts of the French nobility. This aversion to the Habsburg woman was shared in the revolutionary spirit of the enemies of the monarchy and the old order. From this unusual transverse front, smear campaigns were carried out against them even before the marriage with the Dauphin of France, the son of Louis XV, long before the outbreak of the revolution. Nothing changed when she became Queen of France in 1774.
Marie Antoinette went down in history as the prototype of the incarnate lascivious, unworldly and arrogant pride of monarchs and high nobility. Even today every child knows that she responded to the demands of the hungry people for bread: "Then let them eat cake". The absolute contempt of the needy. Only: Marie Antoinette never said that sentence. It was said of her, and with bad intent. The anecdote alleged is what we now call fake news, a hoax with far-reaching and devastating consequences. Nevertheless, it is still being spread freshly and cheerfully today. It suited the revolutionaries too well, and their spirit still determines the historiography of the events of that time. As is well known, the winner writes history.
The cake fairy tale comes from Jean-Jacques Rousseau, one of the most important pioneers of the revolution. However, he had already been dead for four years when his story was first published in 1782. He had written it many years before and never claimed that it had anything to do with the daughter of the Roman-German emperor. At that time Marie Antoinette was still a small child who lived in distant Vienna and no one could have guessed that she would one day become Queen of France. In the style of "Once upon a time", Rousseau ascribed the sentence to an unnamed "great princess". It was easy for the revolutionaries to turn the narrative against the queen seven years later. This “variation” was devoured only too willingly by its followers, who were able to bring even greater fermentation into the people.
Marie Antoinette with her children. The first-born Ludwig Joseph (right) died in childhood before the outbreak of the revolution. The second-born, Ludwig Karl (Ludwig XVII.), On the queen's lap, ended up in the dungeon of the revolution.
How the Emperor's daughter and Queen Marie Antoinette died, beyond low chatter says more about her, however. Her executioner, Charles-Henri Sanson, kept a diary. For the execution of the Queen, he noted how the masses of onlookers jostled along the streets that led from the prison to the scaffold:
“When she passed the Palais Égalité, she seemed alarmed; she looked at the numerous house numbers with an expression on her face that betrayed more than curiosity. The Queen had foreseen that a priest of the Roman Church would not be allowed to give her the highest consolation of religion; she was worried about it, but an unauthorized member of the clergy, the Abbé Magnien, who had invaded the conciergerie, had promised her that on the day of her torture he would go to a house on the rue Saint-Honoré to put this absolution on her head in extremis, for which the Church has given all its power to the simplest of its ministers. The number of this house had been told Marie-Antoinette and so she looked for it; she found it, and at a sign that only she could understand, when she recognized the priest, she bowed her head, remained in a devout posture and prayed; then a sigh of relief escaped her chest and you saw a smile on her lips. "
The clergy had been forced to submit to the state by the revolutionary government. It was required to take an oath on the civil constitution for the clergy. This was the only way to keep one’s pay. The deprivation of livelihoods wasn't the only leverage. Anyone who did not take the oath was declared to be a "threat to the nation", which meant that the priests who refused this abuse of power by the state were regarded as enemies of the state. Pope Pius VI condemned the despotic intervention of the state. Those who stood firm were called "refractors," while the bishops and priests who took the oath came to be known as "sworn" or "constitutional" clergy. Only this was recognized. Refractory priests caught celebrating Mass were executed. Abbé Magnien, who gave the queen absolution in extremis, was such a refractory priest.
Constitutional priests had been admitted to the Queen's prison for execution prior to departure. Marie Antoinette turned them down because she did not want the assistance of schismatic priests. In her last letter she had written:
“I am dying in the Catholic, Apostolic and Roman religion, that of my fathers, that in which I was raised and to which I had always confessed. Since I cannot expect any spiritual assistance, as I do not know whether there are still priests of this religion here and the place where I am would betray them if they should occur, I sincerely ask God for forgiveness for all of them my offenses that I have committed since I existed [...]. "
The grandson of her hangman, who was also called Charles-Henri Sanson, published the diaries of his grandfather many years later, who was accompanied by his son as an assistant during the execution of the Queen. The grandson wrote:
“Never, my father often repeated to me, has Marie Antoinette shown herself more worthy of her high rank. She was a true queen, this woman who, without turning pale or lowering her eyes, endured the wild glances of the sovereign people; heard the roar of the lion without trembling, to which she was thrown as prey; who, like the Roman Caesar, stood upright without bending her knees; for whom the wretched cart was still a throne; who even succeeded in the humiliation to which she had been brought, to compel hearts, incapable of compassion, to awe by the strength of her soul. "
The revolutionary officer in charge of the execution waved his sword and repeatedly ordered the executioner Sanson to show the crowd the head of the executed queen. Finally one of his assistants carried the severed head around to the scaffold like a trophy. The call rang out: "Vive la Republique", "Long live the Republic".
"Alone, this exclamation was limited to the immediate vicinity of the scaffold," as Sanson's grandson noted.”

The Woods family as I like to think of them, sans RINO politician of dubious morality.
Edit: after talking to Tom Woods in private message I got a few issues sort of explained to me about how he perceives things or wants them to be perceived:
1. He didn’t want the divorce. Tom’s wife was, as coincidence would have it, spending time with the weirdos who belong to Wood’s Libertarian political circle and they encouraged her malicious and really unjust attacks on Tom’s character. Demonic possession springs to mind.
2. Tom has an annulment which even a conservative Diocese in the post-conciliar Church would have approved, despite being married many years and father five girls. We all know what the modern annulment process amounts to. It’s very doubtful that he wasn’t validly married to his wife.
Tom also says we’re not entitled to know the details which were essential in the judgement. I disagree. When you draw your daily bread shilling for traditional Catholic capital, you should be a very transparent. Tom doesn’t spend much time defending Catholic positions any more. He’s largely focused on building what to my mind, and many Catholics, is an evil Libertarian Party affiliation that seems to me what destroyed his marriage. If he wants Catholics to support him, he should be a little more honest about why he broke with the Remnant people in the first place.
Surely, his interaction with Chris Ferrara was pretty mild.
3. Tom says I’m being Marxist by embracing a lie. I don’t think it’s a lie. I believe Tom is abandoning his family. How will he have time to take care of his girls while he’s servicing a morbidly obese Laino? Is it so awful that strongly I dislike and disapprove his decision to put away his current wife on the basis of a flimsy annulments process, and marry someone who clearly has some emotional and psychological problems which will make another annulment child’s play should it come. Of course, Miss Laino is also Libertarian. He also threatened a LOLSuit, but I don’t care. You can’t sue people for having opinions you disagree with.
I also don’t think it’s wise of Tom to take up with this new woman when his wife is trying to raise his five girls. I can’t even imagine the confusion and sadness which the children and the rest of society will suffer as Tom negotiates between his two women, and how best to raise his girls. How will Tom’s wife come home when she realizes how foolish she’s been and that, despite the assurances from her “friends” in Libertardarianism, that she can’t do better than Tom Woods. I think a reasonable person would conclude that she was lucky to find Tom in the first place.
A photo Tom’s wife put up of the girls on an outing. Where’s Tom? No Tom. Very sad. They look abandoned to me.
4. Tom denies shilling for Trads or even presenting himself as a Traditional Catholic. This is a lie. I suggest removing or amending the passage on Wikipedia or making a public statement that he repudiates Catholic teaching, which I assume he did when he parted with the Remnant. (It was a lot more embittered than he wanted me to believe in our discussion.)
5. Tom wants me to explain why his Englightenment Capitalist ideas, which are hostile to Catholic economic teaching, are problematic or that I understand them in the first place. I think his wife’s behavior speaks for itself. Isn’t she putting Rothbardian principles into action by dumping Tom in search of better arrangements? Never mind that she has done much to impoverish Tom and his girls in so doing. Atlas Shruggs, no big deal, since people and social arrangements are fungible.
6. Tom says he’s having a TLM Nuptial Mass. How do the weird Libertarian friends of the bride who look like lesbian witches and fortune tellers fit in with the Atheist “Best Man”?
I assume everyone knows that Tom’s best friend Michael Malice is not just an atheist, but a Jew as well?
Tom blocked me from seeing his wedding registry. Lol, I’ve got a VPN. He’ll be having his wedding with the weird furry, witch, libertarian and Jewish best man at the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception. That should be weird.
More pics of the wedding party.
P.S. I’d much rather be doing an entry on a man with a history of defending pederasty publicly working for the Saint Paul Schools, but I’d rather give Tom some air time since he threatened to sue me.
P.P.S. I don’t want to be mean to Tom. He’s always been nice. He’s even keeled, he’s interesting and a compelling speaker. But he’s wrong here and he should stop pretending that the JQ doesn’t exist.

Contemplative convents do not mean much to the current Church leadership in Santa Marta. The Church is to be cleansed of them, especially those associated with the traditional Rite.
By Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò
It is with deep sadness and vivid indignation that I follow the events in connection with the apostolic visitations carried out by the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life in some convents of contemplative life in the United States in recent days.
The manner in which these visitations are carried out in violation of canonical norms and the most elementary legal principles, the intimidations and threats that characterize the interrogations of the nuns, the psychological violence perpetrated against the members of the monasteries, which violate the principles of charity and justice, by which the functionaries of a papal dicastery should be guided, make visible in all their disturbing obviousness, the real intentions of persecution by the visitors, the cynical executors of those already introduced by the prefect Cardinal João Braz de Aviz and the secretary Msgr. José Rodriguez. Orders given to Carballo are based on precise instructions from Bergoglio. Whichever community is targeted by them, the bullying by the visitors with the aim of dividing the sisters is always the same, as is the attempt to create severe disturbance up to and including violation of the intimate sphere in people through strong psychological pressure who are used to living in the silence and contemplation of prayer and penance.
Behind this purge, like everything that characterizes the work of the Bergoglian Church, there is a hatred and an iconoclastic anger towards the communities of contemplative life, especially those associated with tradition and the ancestral Rite. It is a hatred that came into practice with Cor Oran's sinister instruction and its cruel and merciless application. There is also an unhealthy interest in the money and donations these communities receive, which the Vatican is trying to usurp on any pretext.
This hatred is neither legally nor disciplinarily justified, since these monasteries targeted by the Vatican simply live according to the charisma peculiar to their order, in loyalty to their holy founders and in a spirit of sincere communion with the Church. Their vocations increase, as happens in all institutes where the rule of the founders is put into practice and the Tridentine liturgy is celebrated. The “guilt” of these religious is that they want to remain faithful to the unchangeable Magisterium of the Church, its two thousand year tradition and its venerable liturgy. In short, this is the “fault” of all secular institutes and religious orders, whether male or female, in the eyes of a ruthless, destructive approach.
I consider it my duty as Shepherd to undertake to denounce with all seriousnes, the systematic work of destruction by the Congregation for Religious, whose leaders make no secret of their aversion to any form of consecrated life, in complete agreement with their sponsor and the unsettling, lazy silence of the ordinaries who do not, yet are able to defend and protect the most valuable and vulnerable part of the mystical body.
We must not forget that the merciless persecution by the Vatican has already plagued flourishing female religious orders that have now been completely destroyed: I am thinking of the Franciscan Sisters of Immaculate (Italy), the Little Sisters of Mary of Saint-Aignan-sur-Roë (France) , the School Sisters in Auerbach (Germany), the Dominican Sisters of the Holy Spirit (France) - to name just a few.
I also remind you that the proponents of this action are the first against whom a disciplinary investigation should have been launched after Carballo was involved in very serious financial scandals while he was Minister General of the Franciscans. His position has been so compromised that it was necessary to house him in the Vatican, although the secretaries of the congregation usually reside outside the Leonine Walls. Cardinal Braz de Aviz, a notorious supporter of liberation theology, was appointed by Bergoglio to head the Congregation of Religious to “transform” the consecrated according to the Stalinist methods characteristic of the government of the Bergoglian Deep Church. It’s a purge worthy of the worst dictatorial regimes and suited to the climate of terror that has ruled the Vatican since 2013.
I urge my fellow bishops, priests and especially the laity to speak out against the destruction of contemplative monasteries and traditional religious communities. It is necessary to give not only spiritual and moral support to the victims of an aggression that intensified in the weeks after the proclamation of the Motu Proprio Traditionis custodes, but also material and media support so that the persecuted religious women can be defended and those responsible for this persecution, which is despicable in the eyes of God and of the entire ecclesial community, should be denounced.
I understand very well how difficult it is, in the face of the perversion of ecclesiastical authority, to reconcile the solemn vow of obedience to superiors with the manifestly evil aims which they pursue; and how painful it is to oppose those who are to exercise authority in the name of our Lord. Nevertheless, any collaboration would be a form of complicity and culpable complicity. Obedience to God and loyalty to the Church cannot be combined with blind submission to those who are enemies of both: “One must obey God more than men”, as St. Peter says (Acts 5:29). This applies to both religious and secular clergy, whose silence can no longer continue in the face of the dissolution of the church bodies.
In view of this serious conflict of conscience in which the religious find themselves, I direct a special appeal to the lay people and benefactors of the women's monasteries to work actively, also with the help of appropriate legal means, to guarantee and protect the independence of the monasteries and their property.
I assure the persecuted women religious of my constant prayer and invite them to resist with steadfastness and courage and to sacrifice their sufferings for the conversion of their persecutors. May these silent brides of Christ connect spiritually with the painful ordeal of the Carmelites of Compiègne, the sixteen nuns who were guillotined during the Terror, the reign of terror in the French Revolution, because they did not want to leave their Carmelite monastery and not renounce their religious vows. May the heroic resistance of these consecrated women, persecuted in the odium fidei by bloodthirsty revolutionaries, be an example in these times of apostasy, when anti-Catholic persecution and ideological anger are promoted by those who consider the communities of contemplative life who should see them as the most precious treasure of the Church and protect them as the most effective means against the attacks of the enemy. If the constant prayer of these blessed souls fails, the Church body will be even more disarmed at that moment in the midst of the raging of this momentous battle.
Like the wise virgins in the parable of the Gospel (Mt 25: 1–13), women religious should remain loyal to the divine Bridegroom and wait for him with burning lamps. These dark times will pass, and with them the apostates who rage against them.
The leadership of the Vatican, and especially Jorge Mario Bergoglio, will have to answer to God for this grave guilt of the Congregation for the Order, which is not without worrying ideological connotations: for the abuse of its authority against the good of the Church and against the salvation of souls. May the Lord open the eyes of the many who still refuse to see the apostasy that plagues the Catholic hierarchy.

Joseph Bonnemain uses "pastor" instead of "pastoral assistant" and thus swings in line with the dioceses of Basel and St. Gallen. The question of who is preaching is also secondary to him.
Chur (kath.net/mk) Last Saturday, the Bishop of Chur, Joseph Bonnemain, gave up previous positions in the diocese, which differentiated it from the liberal dioceses of St. Gallen and Basel, in a sermon as part of a broadcast celebration for pastoral assistants. Last year he changed the term “pastoral assistant” in favor of “pastor” because “assistant” is discriminatory, terminating the previous consensus with Chur. The term “lay theologian” is also bad because it contains the word “layman”.
The term pastoral assistant comes from the 1970s and was intended to express the fact that laypeople act as an alternative to the church hierarchy.
Now Bonnemain has also swung on the new course: in his address to the assembled pastoral assistants, he first speaks of theologians, pastors and colleagues. Since he did not know (!) How to address them correctly, he wanted to use “sisters and brothers”. Later he used the address “pastors” again. He is concerned with a fraternal church of women and men, non-consecrated and consecrated. “For me the question of who preaches in the celebration of the Eucharist is secondary,” says the Bishop. Much more important is the quality of the sermon.

"Narrow self-assurance" of the participants in the 'Synodal Way'
"Welt" is sharply critical of the recent meeting of the Synodal Way - the participants had seriously decided to put the existence of Catholic priests up for grabs.
Bonn (kath.net) "The Catholic Church, God knows, needs reform. The participants in the “Synodal Way” reform process, however, have shown themselves to be unable to cope with this great task. Their nonsensical demands show that they are not concerned with realistic impulses, but with themselves." With clear words, Lucas Wiegelmann, head of the Department Head of the Forum section of “Die Welt” sharply criticized them at the recent meeting of the controversial Synodal Way in Germany. For Wiegelmann, the most recent meeting "overreached all prejudices in the most depressing way. The journalist criticized the “narrow-minded self-assurance” of the participants. With a narrow majority (95 to 94 with 9 abstentions) they had seriously decided to put the existence of Catholic priests up for grabs For Wiegelmann such a vote is of "shameful ignorance and ingratitude" towards the approximately 12,000 priests in Germany. The author reminds us that the Catholic Church is theologically and legally only conceivable with priests, “whoever questions this puts the entire Catholic Church in question and many believers tend not to want that.”
According to the media report, many synodals left unexcused on Saturday. As a consensus, the synodal assembly was not quorate. Wiegelmann said that this prevented the resolution of "some further nonsense".

Edit: I don’t usually link to Saint John’s Abbey blog, Pray, Tell. Look at the barely concealed glee by this Anglican who writes for them.
[Gay, Tell] At a meeting in Frankfurt, German church leaders voted 168 to 28, with five abstentions, to adopt a draft statement on sexuality that includes a resolution saying that “same-sex partnerships who want to take the risk of an unbreakable common life…should be able to see themselves placed under the blessing of God.”
Currently the Church of England is engaged in a national discernment process called “Living in Love and Faith” from which a new teaching document on human sexuality is expected to be issued from the College of Bishops. An introduction is available here: https://youtu.be/g7A3wt0jqZM

So far, three cardinals have been counted as corona deaths: but did they die of the virus or the vaccination?
(Rome) How do the numbers of corona deaths come about: This question has been preoccupying many since the “pandemic” was proclaimed. Not to deny the dead the respect they need, as Corona believers snear, but to clarify whether the government's measures are proportionate. A glance at the College of Cardinals shows only a very small reality, but it is manageable and empirically comprehensible in its entirety.
The opening credits need to be clarified: A lot would be gained, say critics of the corona policy, if the governments made actual corona deaths the yardstick for their decisions. Isn't that the case? It is not, although the high state representatives never tire of justifying themselves with the protection of health. The measures, including the lockdown, were already in place in a number of states when there were no corona deaths in their countries. The basis of government policy is based on model calculations that are based on shaky, sometimes obviously wrong, premises, as has long been amply demonstrated. The “hard” criteria, dead and hospitalized, on the other hand, do not really play a recognizable role. Exaggerated by the mass media, they primarily serve as fear-makers. Not even in 2021, although according to the official census there are already twice as many corona deaths as in 2020, at least in the Federal Republic of Germany, which is of course more significant in terms of numbers than Switzerland and Austria, for example.
Are three cardinals corona deaths or vaccination victims?
Last week, the article Corona toll among the cardinals - Vaccinated and yet Infected was published here, which needs to be supplemented. The number of Covid-19 deaths among the cardinals has since increased from one to three.
The college of cardinals counted 217 purple bearers as of yesterday. 121 of them are papal electors, 97 are over 80 years old and therefore no longer eligible to vote. Since the proclamation of the alleged corona pandemic, a total of 19 cardinals have died: seven in 2020 and twelve in 2021. The youngest, Cornelius Cardinal Sim, Vicar Apostolic of Brunei, was 70, the oldest, Cardinal Adrian Simonis, Archbishop emeritus from Utrecht, at the age of 99.
Despite their origins from very different countries and conditions, cardinals are long-lived: the average age of the deceased purple bearers is a proud 90 years. It is thus far above global life expectancy, including that of women.
Of the 19 deceased, three are counted as corona deaths. None of them died in 2020 when the world was supposedly "defenseless". All three died in 2021 after the global vaccination campaign got underway. They are as follows:
Cardinal Eusébio Oscar Scheid, died on January 13, 2021 in Brazil at the age of 97.
Cardinal Jorge Urosa Savino, died on September 23, 2021 in Venezuela at the age of 80.
Cardinal José Freire Falcão, died on September 26, 2021 in Brazil at the age of 96.
No information could be obtained about Cardinal Scheid, but Cardinals Urosa and Falcão were both fully vaccinated. Cardinal Urosa, who bravely and with little support from Santa Marta fought against the socialist regime of Nicolás Maduro, was hospitalized for other complaints. Cardinal Scheid's state of health was already poor. Cardinal Falcão arrived at the end of his life.
Press agencies reported the cardinal's death. Kathpress headlined: "Old Archbishop of Brasilia died of Covid-19 at the age of 95". Katholisch.de, the news portal of the German Bishops' Conference, and Domradio headlined, based on a KNA report: "Venezuelan Cardinal Urosa died of Corona". All willingly proclaim Corona death. The vaccine death too? Not at all. Nowhere was it mentioned that the deceased had been vaccinated twice. Just a forgetfulness? Hard to believe. Rather, the following applies: It cannot be what must not be. The official Catholic media, like the bishops, submit to this government dictate when it comes to Corona.
Corona infection was found in all three cardinals by means of a PCR test, i.e. on an uncertain basis. The fact is that they are counted as corona deaths. Before the "pandemic" it was taken for granted that someone could die at the old age of 95 or 96 without a government having the idea of subjecting entire peoples and states to coercive measures and even elementary school children become involved by having to have to wear a mask at all times.
In addition to the three deceased, another eleven cardinals were tested corona-positive using the PCR test. The recently widespread assertion that not fourteen but 19 cardinals had tested positive could not be substantiated. Only one of them, Cardinal Burke, went through a difficult illness. Of the others, some would not have noticed anything without the test, so they were false-positive. More notably, most of the cardinals that tested positive had already been double vaccinated, some at least once, and still tested positive. According to the official corona narrative, this would mean that they were infected despite being vaccinated. What the official Corona narrative does not say, as in the cases of the Cardinals Urosa and Falcão, that you can be hospitalized despite being vaccinated and also die of Corona despite being vaccinated - provided you follow this narrative. Either the vaccine preparations are not good, as the governments promise, or the PCR test is not good because even corona governments cannot square the circle.
On or with Corona or despite or because of vaccination
The coronavirus deaths using the example of the College of Cardinals raise less the question of the dangerousness of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus, but all the more the question of the dangerousness of vaccine preparations and the obligation to vaccinate, which was introduced partly de jure and partly de facto. The question of the actual cause of death cannot be objectively determined immediately, neither in the case of corona deaths nor vaccination deaths. This requires an autopsy. The difference is: The corona deaths are still counted ex officio and without an autopsy, while the vaccination deaths fall through the grate because the governments do not want them.
Pope Francis supports the global vaccination campaign. In the Easter message of 2021, he and US President Joe Biden proclaimed the slogan: "Vaccinate, vaccinate, vaccinate". Francis introduced de facto compulsory vaccination in the Vatican and maliciously joked on September 12 on the flight from Budapest to Pressburg that Cardinal Burke was a "corona denier" who had not vaccinated and was therefore ill with Covid-19. Cardinal Burke had already recovered by this point.
The fact is: Corona deaths among the cardinals only occurred after the start of the global vaccination campaign. Since then, the relevant question is no longer whether someone died "from or with" Corona, but rather whether he died despite or because of the Corona vaccination. Two of the three cardinals are counted as corona deaths, possibly even all three died despite or because of the corona vaccination. A statement or mockery by Pope Francis is not yet known.

Leftist Apostate Priest Filling Void Left by Liberation Theology and Vatican II with Schismatic Orthodoxy
Edit: anyone pushing for “land reform” is a commie. The article isn’t specific about why this priest was suspended, but it’s very doubtful for preaching Catholicism. A lot of people will be surprised to see a leftist promoting Orthodoxy, but it’s not really so strange since so many Orthodox clergy embraced Communist ideology in the East under Soviet control. Old habits die hard.
(RNS) — When the clergy and seminarians of the St. Andrew’s Seminary in Aguacate, Guatemala, roll into town they have their work cut out for them.

THE CORSET IS TIED TIGHTER
The Cathedral of Guadalajara with Archbishop Cardinal Robles Ortega: Because of Traditionis custodes, an icy wind is blowing towards the Fraternity of Saint Peter.
Cardinal José Francisco Robles Ortega is Archbishop of Guadalajara, Mexico. The Archdiocese of Guadalajara is one of the most thriving strongholds of the Society of St. Peter (FSSP) in Latin America. On Twitter, the cardinal published the decree he had issued to implement the Motu proprio Traditionis custodes. A tough decree.
With Traditionis Custodes, issued by Pope Francis on July 16, the Immemorial Rite and the communities and associations that are committed to it are to be strangled. Cardinal Robles is implementing papal law with great rigor.
This is surprising at first sight. In 2007, when he was still Archbishop of Monterrey, the Mexican cardinal was appointed by Pope Benedict XVI. elevated to the rank of cardinal. It was also he who appointed him to the Archdiocese of Guadalajara in 2011. However, in contrast to Francis, the German Pope followed much more traditional practices when appointing bishops and cardinals, which limited his scope for decision-making.
Decree with which the quasi-parish was established in 2010
Roble's predecessor as Archbishop of Guadalajara, Cardinal Juan Sandoval Íñiguez, who headed the Archdiocese from 1994 to 2011, had established a quasi-personal parish for the Immemorial Rite on December 6, 2010 and entrusted it to the FSSP. The church of Nuestra Señora del Pilar became its focal point. In the twelfth year of its prosperous existence, the parish has now been eliminated with the stroke of a pen.
Hopes were placed in the FSSP in the Archdiocese of Guadalajara. There, with the Casa Cristo Rey, a first step was taken towards the establishment of a seminary with Spanish as the language of instruction (until now there have been those with German, French and English as the language of instruction). However, the project had stalled in recent years. One reason for this can now be guessed at.
Cardinal Robles tolerates the appearance of the Pachamama in his episcopal city in a decidedly sacrilegious form.
As Pope Francis emphasized several times, most recently on September 12th to the Jesuits in Slovakia, the Motu Proprio Traditionis custodes apodictically assumes that all priests and believers who are connected to the traditional rite are "rigid", "rigid," " Pelagian”, “ideologues”.. That, so Francis justified, he had to fight.
However, the reality is very different: It is not just about the Rite, but about a different understanding of the Church, behind which there is a different theology. Just as Protestants are primarily based on their demarcation from the Catholic Church, so the Novus Ordo and the underlying conceptual structure are primarily based on the rejection of the Vetus Ordo, which, through its mere existence, holds up a mirror to the innovators, which is unbearable for many.
The Pope postulated a premise to justify his intervention that does not exist in this form. Seen in this way, Traditionis Custodes is a textbook example of a distorted perception of reality. Rather, the motu proprio suggests an ideologized thinking of the ruling head of the Church, who flatly rejects the Immemorial Rite and its representatives and shows no willingness to respond to them and their concerns. He considers their existence superfluous and disruptive. The encouragement that is expressed in flourishing communities, full seminaries and congregations with many young families seems even more to be seen as an unbearable thorn in the flesh of the Church. The grotesque stories that Francis tells to justify his actions, for example on September 12th against the Jesuits in Slovakia or on September 1st for the Spanish radio station COPE, which sound extremely embarrassing as an "argument" from the mouth of the Pope, does not hide this ideologized incitement, but makes it even more visible.
Cardinal Robles does not say in his decree what should happen to the allegedly “Pelagian” and “ideologized” believers in the quasi-parish that has now been repealed. Their pastoral care and their access to Holy Mass and the sacraments seem to be of secondary importance. They are being demoted to second class believers.
The text of the tough decree:
Title head of the decree of Cardinal Robles Ortega of September 21, 2021
1) The Mass according to the Missal of 1962 (Art. 2 TC) is allowed to continue with the readings alone being proclaimed in the vernacular using the translation of the Holy Scriptures approved by the Mexican Bishops' Conference (Art. 3 §3 TV).
2) No further Masses may be added. "When the time of the pandemic is over, their number will be checked again on a case-by-case basis."
3) The celebrations have to take place daily “exclusively” in the Church of Nuestra Señora del Pilar; one mass on weekdays in the Cristo Rey chapel; and on Sundays and public holidays in the parish church of San Francisco Javier de las Colinas (Art 3 §2 TC).
4) “The celebrations in the formation house or other houses of the FSSP in the Archdiocese are regulated according to the guidelines of the Congregation of Religious, whereby it should be noted that this chapel and similar chapels do not have the permission of the Archdiocese for public worship, but only the members of this Society are reserved for those in training. "
5) The quasi-parish of San Pedro en Cadenas is also canonically abolished (Art. 3 §2, §5 and §6 TC).
6) The person responsible for the celebration and pastoral care of the participating believers will be announced shortly (Art 3 §4 TC).
7) According to the provisions of the Motu proprio Traditionis custodes, any other celebrations, in accordance with the Missal of 1962, must “obtain the appropriate permission on a case-by-case basis” (Art. 2 TC) and may take place “only in the assigned places”.
8) The priests who should intend to celebrate with the Missale Romanum of 1962 must be "authorized case by case" in accordance with the norm of the Motu proprio Traditionis custodes:
According to Art. 5, this applies to priests "who already celebrate according to the Roman Missal of 1962".
Art. 4 stipulates that "the Apostolic See must be consulted" for requests from priests who were ordained after the publication of the Motu Proprio.
"In both cases, each priest presents me with the corresponding handwritten request, justifying the motives for this request and having to explain it formally along with it:
A) that it does not exclude the validity and legitimacy of the liturgical reform, the provisions of the Second Vatican Council and the Magisterium of the Popes (Art 3 §1 TC);
B) that he also recognizes that the only expression of the Lex orandi of the Roman Rite is that of Popes Saints [sic] Paul VI. and John Paul II are promulgated liturgical books (Art. 1 TC);
C) that he undertakes, normally according to the norms of Popes Saint Paul VI. and John Paul II to celebrate liturgical books promulgated, be it the Holy Eucharist, except in cases where the extraordinary permission is expressly given to follow the Editio of the Roman Missal of 1962, be it in the other sacraments in all cases without exception (since the preceding norms, instructions, grants and habits, which do not correspond to what is stipulated in this Motu Proprio, have been suspended, Art 8 TC).
Signed on September 21, 2021 in the Archiepiscopal Curia in Guadalajara in the 525th year of the first baptisms in Latin America. Drawn by José Francisco Cardenal Robles Ortega, Archbishop of Guadalajara, and Don Javier Magdaleno Cueva, Secretary. Protocol number A4660 / 2021.
A seminary of the Petrine Brotherhood for the Spanish-speaking world has for the time being moved into an unreachable distance in the Archdiocese of Guadalajara.

Edit: I’ve always assumed that going to the Immemorial Mass of All Ages was right because of the kinds of sybarites who had objections to it. Even the eggheads who professed a personal preference for it, but claimed it was out of date, are worthy of scorn.
Another thing which makes an impression is the dishonesty and motivations of many of the “reformers” even going back to the 18th century. The errors of the Liturgical Jansenists are well-entrenched now as normative, even though when they they were introduced, they were abuses carrying the pain of mortal sin to the celebrant.
I don’t believe Virgil Michel or Pius Parsch, for example, are in heaven. The dialog Mass was an innovation to encourage a spirit of activism (leftist political activism and not charity or true peace) in the laity.
Here’s a take by a self-appointed Jew who is still smarting for getting fired from Steubenville.
Also, talking to a handful of ill-informed leftist people who affirm progressivist errors of feminism, race mongering and other precious concerns, isn’t the best sample.
Real Catholics love Franco!
