Bergoglio anti-Catholicism

The man may not be totally useless after all - Sunday 24th to Saturday 30th of December

The last full week of the year came, and this naturally included the Feast of the Nativity, or Christmas as it is more popularly known.

As one might intimate from my blog, I am not a fan of Bergoglio in the slightest. However, he is not totally useless, as he at least keeps me away from home on Christmas Eves.

To be fair, I had more or less decided to attend the Christmas Midnight Mass even before Bergoglio popped up dressed as pope, but he nudged me over the edge, and now I attend Christmas Mass every time, or the closest approximation we have of it anyway.

I used to enjoy watching Pope Benedict XVI celebrate Midnight Mass, even though I had come more and more to despise the Novus Ordo mass he used for the celebration, so chances are that I would have stopped watching sooner or later. I remember that they had a very beautiful statue of the baby Jesus who they put in the crib after the Midnight Mass.

Then came Bergoglio and the beautiful baby Jesus statue was replaced by something which looked more like what one picks up from one of those cartons they dish out with children's meals at fast food restaurants, except much bigger. Some claimed it looked like something from a Lidl store, but having bought a lot of quality stuff from that store, I can assure my readers that it has far better quality than whatever they made that statue from. It was more or less the most plactic thing I had seen, and the sad thing is I am not even sure it was made from plastic/rubber. It looked like one of those rubbery shapes one fills up with water to float in a bathtub.

As we now know, turning to ugly is part of Bergoglio's main strategy for destroying the Catholic faith and it has gone even more downhill from there.

It was a quiet week in the Church - at least I did not pick up on any scandals or any overly good news. The one thing that made the news was how much Bergoglio's attendance numbers at the Urbi et Orbi speech have dwindled. There is no doubt that he has fewer numbers now than he had during his first speech, and definitely far fewer than Pope Benedixt XVI had at his last.

It was indeed interesting to compare the two images as one can clearly note that Pope Benedict XVI on his final Urbi et Orbi speech had a far larger crowd coming to listen to him in 2013  in less pleasing weather, than Bergoglio had on a sunny day in 2017.

The word is out: If I want to be insulted for being Catholic I can save money and time and avoid the Vatican and simply get my insults from any third-rate raving leftist closer to home, or failing that, on the television.

In other Church news, one of Bergoglio's closest perverts, Cardinal Tobin, says that he is in favour of female cardinals. He says he sees no reason why that should not be the case, and then adds "maybe my theology isn’t sophisticated enough". In other words, he is trying to say that he doesn't get it, surprising nobody, since the list of what Tobin gets would seem to be shorter than the number of times the man has skipped a meal. That we can have lay cardinals is one thing, but of course, cardinals have always been considered part of the Church hierarchy, and the hierarchy in the Church is partriarchal. Maybe he deos have a good - by his standards - intention. It could be that he realises that news of homosexual orgies at the Vatican is extremely negative and he wants to tidy up some headlines by spicing up the orgies at the Vatican or some such thing. One is inclined to conclude something to that effect as we can almost certainly rule out a moral motive.

We were also informed that another of Bergoglio's close associates - perhaps his closest - is suspected of huge financial corrpution in Honduras. He naturally denied it, and Bergoglio even went as far as offering his condolences to him for the trouble that others are causing for him. This is, of course, the cardinal who was revealed - through Wikileaks - of having accepted a large sum of money in order to help Bergoglio's trip to the U.S. have a decidedly leftist bent - as if Bergoglio or his advisors needed any help with that agenda.The Eponymous Flower titled their article "Pope Intimate and Poverty Poser Receives $600,000 a Year to Do Nothing" which, if it were true, I would happily approve - if all it took to get Maradiaga to do nothing was to pay him a small fortune.

Whatever one may think of Bergoglio, one cannot avoid at the very least the fact that he keeps very corrupt and perverted company, and then we ought to recall something about birds of a feather and flocking together.

Over at the Southern Orders Page, Fr. Allan J. McDonald once again proves that celebrating the Tridentine Mass is no guarantee of Catholic sanity as the man argues that Pope Paul VI should be canonised - there are rumours that a secodn miracle has been approved or soon will be in any case. The intersting thing is that he offers Humanae Vitae as the reason why Paul VI should be canonised, and the fact that he put aside Bugnini. So he is asking us to believe that although Pope Paul VI allowed the heretical notion that contraception could be permitted before condemning that notion, although not in any way enforcing that condemnation by means of ecclesiastical penalties, and then tossed Bugnini away from Rome after Bugnini had managed to ruin the Church's liturgies and disciplines he showed "heroic virtue" or can be held up...

A 2000-year old mistranslation, corrected by his humbleness - Sunday 3rd to Saturday 9th of December

In a good stroke of luck, I discovered a blog through Rorate Caeli, by a young woman who has now become a nun. From what I could tell she went from being your ordinary run-of-the-mill Novus Ordo Catholic, to taking the faith seriously, then to embracing tradition and finally becoming a postulant. From what I understand she would much rather have joined the Fransican Sisters of the Immaculate, but on account of Bergoglio's attempt to strangle that order, she had to choose another order.

Her blog is well-worth reading - although it is not actively maintained nowadays - as is her entry on the topic of veiling. In many ways I do feel that the Church will never improve unless we get back to doing the simple things right, and there is surely nothing easier than the rule in the Church regarding head-covering.

Over in Moscow, they are getting tired of American propaganda and aggression towards all and sundry. The comment by Sergei Lavrov that the U.S. should come out in the open regarding whether it is trying to provoke North Korea into a military confrontation as a pretext to destroying it or not was very telling. Fortunately, North Korea has now demonstrated that it has both a powerful nuclear weapon and the means to deliver this nuclear weapon to parts whose victims the U.S. would not dismiss simply as collateral damage - i.e., much if not all of the continental United States.

Being on the side of North Korea on anything is certainly something I never thought I would ever do, but on this issue the lines are perfectly drawn and North Korea is completely in the right and the U.S., as usual, completely in the wrong.

The speed with which the North Koreans have developed their missile capacity is nothing short of striking. It gives me the impression that they have received help, and I suspect this came mainly from China. We have all seen how aggressively the U.S. has approached the border of Russia in Europe and the Chinese will have been taking notes. The last thing they want is to have the U.S. doing the same thing next to them - and Russia, I suspect, would do a whole lot to prevent this as well. In that context, although the Chinese would certainly want to keep the nuclear club as tiny as possible, helping North Korea along its nuclear weapons programme would certainly seem a much more acceptable solution than having the world's most warfaring state right on their doorstep, and it is not unlikely that the Chinese have had a big hand in helping the North Koreans with their weapons so as to maintain the status quo rather than forcing the Chinese into countering the U.S. militarily  head-on.

Whether or not the warfare industry in the U.S. has received these very clear warnings is something else altogether. I am almost at the point whereby I want the U.S. to do something in the Korean Peninsula as I am certain that it would be the end of U.S. hegemony and would bring down their murderous foreign policy to a grinding halt more or less for good. Naturally, I do not want to see anyone dying either so I would much rather the U.S. stopped acting like a bully and came to its senses.

On the topic of 'failed' U.S. policies, we now find that Libya once again has slave markets. We can certainly dismiss the notion that the U.S. is in any way interested in fighting Islamists as the only thing the U.S. has done consistently in the world over the last 30 or so years is to put Islamists in power, and make it harder for local Christians to go about their lives. In the latter case, this even applies to their domestic policy. The editors of the Catholic Herald should hang their heads in shame given how strongly the pushed for a war in Libya.

Staying on the topic of U.S. mess-ups, we have Saakashvili creating a mess in Ukraine- all the while proving to everyone that he is rather messed up - , the same Ukraine which benefited from one of the customary Western-backed coups that make things much worse than they were before. It is frightening to think that we had senior members in the U.S. establishment saying that the U.S. should take in Georgia as a member of NATO and therefore leave the decision on whether to start a NATO-Russia war to these types of madmen, a point that Pat Buchanan makes with not a little bit of gloating and bemusement. To be fair though, madmen don't come loonier than McCain and some of the other warmongers in the U.S. establishment. We now have the comical scene of a Georgian stooge creating political instability for the Ukrainian stooge in Ukraine. The only thing which would make the situation more comical were if the media was to start calling a man who has spent much of his adult life denouncing Russia - Saakashvili - an agent of Vladimir Putin, which seems to be the extent of the intellectual depth of the mainstream Western establishment. Thumbs up for Western interventions!

It would not be an entry without coverage of NOChurch madness. This week's comes in the form of Bergoglio calling for the Pater Noster to be changed. Well, he did not call for an exact change, but rather he wants it to be translated in such a way as to change the meaning of the original. Evidently, we have a pope who cannot take the time to explain that the LORD does not lead us into evil and temptation, so he wants the prayer changed so as to leave Catholics non-confused about it. 

Look, this is just another Bergoglio strawman. Which person on the Earth has ever picked up the Pater Noster as the first thing he did on his Christian...
