Fr Matthew Despard: is the priest who exposed homosexual decadence going to be forced out?


Scottish media are reporting that Fr. Matthew Despard, may be expelled from the priesthood by Bishop Toal of the Diocese of Motherwell. Montfort carried a reflection, and it is well worth re-reading. 

In part, Montfort wrote:

 The "problem" of Fr. Despard is really a diversionary tactic; to throw people off the real issue. And it is not the allegations of choir directors and others who take umbrage to what may or may not be true, or what is in Fr. Despard's book. The issue is NOT Fr. Despard's book! The issue is: and I will restate it again for those who  seem to have difficulty in understanding: it is the sexual abuse of young people, and active homosexual activity by priests. That is the issue. Fr. Despard's book just helped blow the lid off the boil! The evil that is in the Church in Scotland is exemplified by the lying and covering up of horrible sexual crimes and behaviours.

Please pray for Fr. Despard and Scotland.   




The beginning of Advent: "Who is Our King"?


"Morning Of Advent" by Tancau Emanuel
“Morning Of Advent” by
Tancau Emanuel


31 Meditations for Advent and Christmas

“The King Who is to come; O come let us adore Him.”

1st Day: WHO IS OUR KING?


Our King is Jesus Christ, God and Man. The name Jesus indicates His Divine nature. For Jesus means Saviour (“Thou shalt call His name Jesus; for He shall save His people from their sins”– Matt. i. 21). Now from our sins none can save us but One who is Himself God; none else can pay the debt due for man’s sin. Hence He who is our King is also our Saviour; and He who is our Saviour must be God, the God of infinite majesty, infinite power, and infinite knowledge. This is why before the name of Jesus every knee must bow; because the name of Jesus is the name of God. If men glory in having a noble King, how much more ought we to rejoice in having as our King the Omnipotent God and Lord of Heaven and earth.

Reverse Papolatry: how some Traditionalists have focused on the Pope rather than Our Lord

 "Whoever committeth sin, is the slave of sin" John 8:34


Pope Francis needs our prayers, not our hate, anger, rage. We have had weak, bad even evil popes before. The Church survived. Why? Because Christ is the Head of the Church, not a man. Christ has triumphed.

The Providence of God saw to enshrine in the First Vatican Council that the Supreme Pontiff actually has very little powers. He is not some arbitrary figure who may make up doctrine on a whim. To lament and rage over utterances of the Holy Father gives to him far, far more power than he ever had: it is a form of reverse papolatry. Eventually, the only sick logic of this is sedevacantism, or unbelief. The Pope is a liberal, but is infallible; ergo I must be a liberal. Or, the Pope is liberal, but is infallible, ergo he is not Pope. This is madness.

We do not know if the selection of Haring for praise was the Pope's or his advisors. In a sense, it does not matter. The men whom Pope Francis has surrounded himself are not giving good advise, nor have been giving good advise for some time. 

The proper reaction from Catholics to the confusion coming from Rome should not be anger, hatred, vulgarity, moral relativism etc. When Catholics calling themselves "traditional" do not understand that sin is sin, that it is black and white, then we have a serious problem: it is called moral relativism and it comes from being imbued with the poison of liberalism.

These are all signs of the Enemy and not the Holy Spirit.
 
There are a few voices of soundness, of calm who are speaking up. Cardinal Burke and Bishop Schneider are two exemplary voices in the hierarchy, but not the only ones. Notwithstanding, when Cardinal Burke did not commit episcopal "suicide" by denouncing the Pope within a few hours of the publication of Amoris Laetitia (and hence effectively removing himself from defending the truth), his voice is a voice of Catholic clarity proclaiming the truth in charity amongst the din of hatred.

When a mere man, the Pope in Rome, has become the centre of attention, the focus of hate, - not prayer - we have a serious problem. When Our Lord, who should be our focus, is a mere afterthought, we have an even bigger problem.

The Pope in Rome needs out prayers and sacrifices. We need to increase our prayers, and decrease our "noise". 

"It is easy to see what effects proceed from corrupt nature; they are such things as...feuds, quarrels, jealousies, outbursts of anger, rivalries, dissensions, factions, spite... I warn you, as I have warned you before, that those who live in such a way will not inherit God’s kingdom. Whereas the spirit yields a harvest of love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, generosity, forbearance, gentleness, faith, courtesy, temperateness, purity".   
Galatians, 5, 19-23

How "Traditionalists" and "Modernists" join hands as the Servants of Satan

Our Lord and His Church are under demonic attack: such is the power of Satanism that he uses both "left" and "right" in undermining and destroying the Church. 

The devil does not care how he gets a soul but that he gets one. 

There is much laughter in hell when the "Traditionalist" and "Modernist" have both been swung off in the service of Satan.  

Archbishop Fulton Sheen was right when he once stated that the reason why so few people converted was because they had not meant an authentic Christian.
I ask: are these Tweets by authentic Christians?

(my apologies to the ladies who read this blog, for the monstrous expletive but the truth must be known).

"The Smoking Adulterist Gun": How Antonio Spadaro S.J. is the "hit man" for the heresy of "Pastoralism"

Originally published on July 7, 2015, this article is even more prescient with the latest virulent attacks by Antonio Spadaro S.J., on the Four Cardinals who have publicly opposed the heresy of Pastoralism as the pretext for admitting adulterers to Holy Communion. This interview, given well before Amoris Laetitia, provides us with the template that FR. Spadaro used when he ghost wrote the Pope's exhortation that permits Holy Communion for adulterers through the "back door". 


Fr. Antonio Spadaro S.J., in an interview with Georges Cardinal Cottier (published in the ultra-modernist Jesuit run, America) receives this response from the aged prelate on if and how Holy Communion may be given to adulterers. We see this type of prudential judgment being floated by bishops by people like Paul-Andre Durocher; or Thomas Rosica promoting what Anglican heretics call "Regional Autonomy" in deciding which adulterers may receive Holy Communion. Likewise, it was only recently that Cardinal Baldisseri spoke with Fr. Thomas Rosica about an update for the Church



Fr. Spadaro: We are thus faced with a methodological problem. Generic classifications [he is promoting Nominalism]  ignore a considerable number of concrete aspects [subjectivism] that are, however, crucial for the formulation of an equitable judgment.

Cardinal Cottier:  The moral theology of St. Thomas is one based on prudence, which, in an existential way, applies the right judgment to the affective dynamism to which it orients. Every judgment of prudence is unique [yes, but not to be used to erase objective truth]. This is because, on the one hand, every action is unique and, on the other, because the subject that carries out this action is also unique. I am personally involved in my choices; they are mine. One single action is not a repetition of a similar action that I have carried out at some other moment or that someone else has carried out. The judgment of prudence must bear in mind the circumstances surrounding the act to be carried out. And in this objective consideration there is no trace of relativism or of “situation ethics.” The judgment of prudence involves the person in that person’s uniqueness [being is different than acting, Eminence]; it is an objective judgment, in the sense that it refers to objective norms. Emphasizing the subjectivity of the moral act does not at all mean giving in to subjectivism [it does, if you consider "concrete aspects" as the "formulation of an "equitable judgment"] . Thus, during the recent debate on the possible admission to the Eucharist of the “divorced and remarried,” an oversimplified generalization that leaves out the diversity of situations [you have just contradicted yourself, Eminence. Is diversity now an "objective judgment"? ] has been an obstacle to wise and well-considered conclusions.

Thus, moving from the "concrete aspects" of a divorce and remarriage, and taking into consideration the "diversity of situations", we are now left with...!

Fr. Spadaro: From whom can we expect a judgment of prudence?
Cardinal Cottier: I believe that the solution to some of the problems should come from the prudential judgment of the bishop. I say this not without hesitation and doubts, in view of the division among the bishops. My judgment is to be applied, first of all [and then what, Your Eminence, expand Holy Communion to MORE adulterers?], to certain situations where there is a high probability that the first marriage was null but for which it is difficult to provide evidence that is canonically acceptable [They are STILL married, Your Eminence!] .




So there we have it friends!! Gone is St. Pope John Paul II's 'Veritatis Splendor, where we read: "circumstances or situations can never transform an act intrinsically evil by virtue of its object into an act "subjectively" good or defensible as a choice".The local Ordinary will decide that a civilly "re-married" Catholic really is entitled to an annulment, but canonically it is still impossible due to lack of evidence. He will thus give the go-ahead that this adulterer can receive Holy Communion.

Notice how these adulterists have technically left intact indissolubility? Notice how they are now declaring themselves; their new heresy: the heresy of PASTORALISM. 

THE CHURCH AWOKE WITH A GROAN TO FIND HERSELF PASTORALIST

Going back to the 50s will not "make the Church great again"

Every so often Fiftiesism breaks out amongst Catholics who hanker for the "good old days" of Pius XII and the comfortable lives - so they think in their fantasy - of the Catholic Church prior to the Council. but the Council blew away the rot, the decadence, the hypocrisy, the liberalism, the Americanism  that had invaded the Catholic Church for decades prior to the 1960s. 

Fifties Catholicism was a Church far too rich, far too comfortable, far too conformable to the secular world that was rapidly sliding into apostasy.

We do not need to "make the Church great again" or some other shallow political slogan, for the Church was always great, from the moment She was born from Christ's side on Mount Calvary. What we need is to prayer, to act with humility, to never be tempted that we will save the Church. "Place not your trust in Princes..." 

Just as the Dominicans, the Jesuits, the Franciscans and the other once great Orders have crashed off to the side, seduced by liberalism, so too we see much of the Fraternity of St. Peter's and the Society of St. Pius X slowing crashing off to the side with Manicheanism and prideful temptations that they will be the special "elite" of God to save the Church. 

Pride always comes before the fall. Beware of pride, dear readers. God has never blessed or favoured the proud, but always brought them down.

Is it not a marvel that outside of the North American Martyrs, and a number of holy nuns, the only Canadian elevated to the Altars was the humble, semi-illiterate Brother Andre of Montreal? Let this extraordinary saint be a warning for our eminently "educated" churchmen. 

We need to "watch and pray", remain humble and follow the example of saints like Philip Neri or Therese of Lisieux.

I reflected a while ago on Fifties Catholicism, and stand by every word - even more so today, than when I wrote it. 

WE NEED THIS...

NOT THIS

BREAKING: Antonio Spadaro S.J., brings the hammer down on the Four Cardinals ~ terrorizing bishops and priests into silence

Antonio Spadaro. S.J., the man who is running this Papacy, is striking hammer blows at the Four Cardinals and any other potential opponents of Adultery with a series of vicious Tweets. 

The aggression of Spadaro is a way of warning any other churchmen who might wish to express opposition to giving Holy Communion to Adulterers to back off.

By bringing down the hammer on the Four, Spadaro is effectively terrorizing timid churchmen into silence. 

These Tweets are shots across the bow of any bishop who would dare speak up. 







Antonio Spadaro S.J., strikes back: The Four Cardinals are "disqualified" - the issue is now closed



As predicted by this blog, the dubia questions raised by the Four Cardinals regarding the permission of accepting Adulterers to Holy Communion has been soundly rejected by the Roman Authorities. 

Antonio Spadaro., S.J., the Ghost Writer of Francis', and the de facto "pope" of Rome has rejected out of hand and dismissed the Four Cardinals. In this, I am not surprised, indeed, I predicted it. In no way is Francis and his manipulator, Spadaro in any way inconvenienced. 





In an arrogant Tweet from his Twitter feed, Spadaro has reaffirmed Francis' letter to the south American Bishops, and sent a canon blast (no pun intended) towards the four Cardinals. 

The issue is now closed. 

The "official" Catholic media will now be strongly onside, the bishops of the world cowed; the laity - intoxicated with masturbation (well over 90%, perhaps as high as 95% of the general population), fornication, adultery, contraception, homosexual perversion, and unnatural oral and anal sex (actually onanistic sodomy which is being promoted by the Theology of the Body crowd) - solidly following Spadaro, will blindly accept the "wink-wink" at adultery from this Jesuit and his underlings in Rome. 

Be assured that The "Four Cardinals" and their dubia are now a dead issue, and the promotion of adultery is proceeding at full speed. 

Once again: we have the Pope we deserve.

The Dubia of the Four Cardinals changes nothing: Francis and Spadaro are in total control

Pray for Christ's Church to His Holy Mother 
With regards to the Dubia sent by four Cardinals to the Pope, a few reflections. 

Firstly, the Pope is, canonically speaking, judged by no one, and the sending of the Dubia will not disturb him, obstruct him or offset him and his handlers in the least. 

Secondly, if there is a response, it will be in the manner of the dismissal of the Abbe de Nantes - that is, the Pope will rule the Dubia out of order. 

The Pope and his handlers - namely his Ghost Writer and the de facto "pope", Antonio Spadaro S.J., will not feel incommoded in the least. To the contrary, even as I write, the "official" Catholic media is already speaking of "semi-retired" Cardinals etc.  

Certainly, for these four Cardinals, they have done a service towards the Truth and those striving to live a Catholic life. May God reward them. However, we should not be deluded. We have received the Pope we deserve. Simply, Catholics could not handle a truly Catholic Pope. With the vast majority of Catholics off fornicating, self-abusing, engaging in unnatural acts within Holy Matrimony, such as oral and anal sodomy (encouraged and excused by the Theology of the Body crowd), unnatural sexual acts between persons of the same sex etc., they are simply not ready for a Catholic Pope. The truth is just too painful at this present time in history.

Do we honestly think God would send the Church another Pius X? Why? No one would obey him. When Paul VI began to Act in a Catholic manner: Humanae Vitae and the Credo, he was mocked, denigrated and ignored. 

In conclusion, we must during this dark time realize that Christ is in absolute and total control of His Church. He is punishing Her presently for grave infidelity; for committing adultery with the world, the flesh and the devil.

Perhaps it is time for Catholics to increase their prayer life, such as making an effort to pray the Rosary every day, make a Holy Hour weekly etc.

"Catholic" Neo-Modernist establishment in meltdown: Thomas Rosica calls Fr. Pavone "disturbed"

Fr. Frank Pavone has devoted his priestly life to fighting the scourge of our times: the satanic ritual of the murder of unborn babies in their mothers' wombs. Unborn babies Thomas Rosica : NOT a "fetus"!!!

Vox Cantoris rightly calls out the nauseating Bishop of Amarillo who intends to launch a witch hunt against Fr. Pavone. 

And now what do we have? The CEO of Salt and Light Media, Thomas Rosica, attacking this saintly man on Twitter. 

How utterly vile, hateful and contemptible. 

Has Rosica nothing to talk or write about, except attack a Catholic priest in the United States? 




To add to this vicious attack on Fr. Pavone as "disturbed", he suggests - via his Salt and Light outfit - we read an article written by a professor from the neo-Modernist, Jesuit controlled, Fordham University. The article - no surprise here - is devoted to attacking President-Elect Donald Trump as a "monstrous defeat" for the pro-life movement. For more on the dissenter, Camosy, please read here.

Not ONE WORD about the EVIL Hillary Clinton. Not one word from this loathsome Fordham professor as to what would have become of the Little SIsters of the Poor had Clinton taken the White House. Yet this is the type of pro-Democrat rubbish that Rosica, Edward Beck, James Martin, Matt Malone and the neo-modernist establishment promote. My there must have been wailing and gnashing  of teeth when "their girl" was rejected by millions of common sense American "peasants" and "workers". 

Rosica - does he need to be reminded - lives in Canada. The Church in Canada is disintegrating: has he ever considered the number of Catholics who support abortion, contraception, excuse unnatural sexual vice or minimize it, support the horror of "same-sex marriage",  or even just engage in solitary self-abuse? 

Thomas Rosica, CSB, you owe Fr. Pavone an apology.

USCCB blackmailed by the Democrat Party into silence over Abortion and other evils?

Every picture tells a story. In this case, every screen shot. With 48 hours to go before the US Presidential Election, a cursory glance at the web page of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops sees them relentlessly promoting the totally discredited and un-Catholic "Catholic Campaign for Human Development". 



This is the election "issue" for these men. 

There is no mention of abortion. No mention of even partial-birth abortion. No mention of the great moral issues: the destruction of marriage, the promotion of homosexuality, pornography, contraception, divorce, fornication, unnatural vice, paganism, and the occult. Etc., etc. 

With one of the two front running candidates backing with incredible aggression, the satanic practice of Partial Birth Abortion: these "evil and wicked men" (c.f. 2 Thess 3:2) are silent. 




Why are they silent?

We have to start asking serious questions where are they coming from. 

Are some of them homosexuals? 

Are some Freemasons? 

Are some occultists?

Are some even Luciferian Satanists? 


Catholics in the United States need to know just what and what these men are. 

But from their behaviour over the past few weeks one can at least draw this conclusion for the vast majority of them: 

These men are cowards.

These men have sold out for filthy lucre. 

These men do not believe, for by "their works ye shall know them". 

These men are betrayers of Jesus Christ and His Church. 

These men are the successors of Judas Iscariot.

Bonfire Night and the Burning of the Pope



A picture speaks a thousand words. In Lewes, England, a strange event takes place every November 5th in which a mob celebrate the gruesome torture and death of Guy Fawkes. Sadly, the Pope is also burnt in effigy.... the event is even enough to cause an Ulster Protestant to blush. 

Update: 

For me, this is particularly sad, as I have been to Lewes, and know the area quite well. Yet, under the cover of an idyllic town, in the hearts of some, lies a burning hatred of Christ and his Church. 

Yet, let this not end in hate for hatred, but prayers for the conversion of these deluded souls, to the faith of their forefathers. The English and Welsh Martyrs did not die in vain.
As Freyr commented: 

"First you create a straw man and then you tear it down in the interest of protecting the state or the people or some such. This allows you to focus the peoples' hate on some external enemy and away from your own activities. It is especially ominous when such hate becomes part of the cultural heritage of a community".


The hellish flames of those who despise Christ's Vicar



Such similar signs existed in Germany: No Jews"

Fanatics marching and proclaiming their hatred
