Idolatry at the Vatican?!

October 15th, 2019 by Vigilo

I can only imagine the distress and confusion that many are experiencing from events this month regarding Jorge Bergoglio (the man many call “Pope Francis”), his church, and the ‘Amazon Synod.’

Within only a few days, “Francis” invited and attended pagan worship on Vatican grounds, he was said to have denied the divinity of Christ in an interview with his atheist friend, and ordinations of women & also of married men was suggested.

Here is a link for when the Vatican corrected the story about ‘Francis’ denying the divinity of Christ… this was their second attempt, as the first one was rather unconvincing. The rest of this post will be concerned about the apparent idolatry at the Vatican.

Idolatry at the Vatican

Here is video of the idolatry at the Vatican.

We know that to be a Catholic, one must believe that the Church is indefectible, and infallible in matter of faith and morals. We also know that we are to hear the Teaching Church under pain of eternal damnation. We know Catholics must acknowledge the Pope as Father, Pastor, and Universal Teacher, and be united with him in mind and heart.

Jesus Christ said in Matthew 16:18 “And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church, and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.”

The Church interprets ‘the gates of hell’ to mean that we are fully assured, that neither idolatry, heresy, nor any pernicious error whatsoever shall at any time prevail over the church of Christ.

When viewing the events from just these few days, can it be said that Christ’s promise remains unbroken, while it also being said that the man who permitted and attended the apparent idolatry at the Vatican, can be a successor of ‘the rock’ on which Christ built His foundation?

This kind of worship we see in the video is a sin against the first commandment of God, because it is the worship of God in a way in which he does not want to be worshiped, and it is gravely offensive to Him.

How can this all be explained?

This is explained by the reality that Jorge Bergoglio is not the pope of the Catholic Church.

It must also be noted, that this reality is not realized merely on this latest idolatry at the Vatican, for the idolatry is just a proof, and not the cause. It is, however, the natural result of the ‘Second Vatican Council.’

The cause of the great apostasy from the faith was the work of many modernists, freemasons, and communists over the course of decades and centuries. They fooled many souls into believing their previously condemned errors were compatible with Christ’s Church.

The error of Religious Indifferentism was condemned in the Syllabus of Errors. Ecumenism was condemned in Mortalium Animos. Modernism was condemned in Pascendi. Collegiality was condemned in Pastor Aeternus. False Religious Liberty was condemned in Libertas Humana…on and on. These errors were cleverly promulgated to weaken the Catholic Church, cause a great loss of faith, and foster the destruction of morals.

Recalling again that the Church is indefectible, and infallible in matter of faith and morals. We know that it can not contradict itself, and that the errors always have been and always will be errors, because our Catholic faith teaches us so.

To further your understanding on the differences between the Catholic Church and the Novus Ordo Vatican 2 sect… here is a helpful side-by-side on the matter.

Catholic Teaching vs Vatican 2 – Religious Liberty

Catholic Teaching vs Vatican 2 – Ecumenism

Catholic Teaching vs Vatican 2 – The New Ecclesiology

There is much more information to be learned… and much more that can be explained…. but the best advice for now is to pray the rosary and learn the Catholic faith (here is a Baltimore Catechism audio format). As you respond to the graces of the Holy Ghost, the reality of the current situation in the Church will be made clearer, and prayerfully more souls will flee the conciliar church and join the one, true, Catholic Church.

God Bless.

October Devotion to Honor St. Joseph

October 7th, 2019 by Vigilo

On this the Feast of the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary, we should also recall another devotion for the month of October, that to blessed St. Joseph.

Pope Leo XIII ordered this prayer to St. Joseph to be said as a devotion after the rosary throughout October. It is a really good prayer, so remember to include it in your devotions.

Prayer to Saint Joseph for the October Devotions

Ordered by Pope Leo XIII to be set as part of the devotions for the Month of October

To thee, O blessed Joseph, do we fly in our tribulation, and having implored the help of thy most holy spouse, we confidently crave thy patronage also. Through that charity which bound thee to the immaculate, Virgin Mother of God, and through the paternal love with which thou didst embrace the Child Jesus, we humbly beseech thee graciously to regard the inheritance which Jesus Christ hath purchased by His blood, and with thy power and strength to aid us in our necessities.

O most watchful Guardian of the Divine Family, defend the chosen children of Jesus Christ; O most loving Father, ward off from us every contagion of error and corrupting influence; O our most mighty Protector, be propitious to us and from heaven assist us in this our struggle with the power of darkness: and, as once thou didst rescue the Child Jesus from deadly peril, so now protect God’s holy Church from the snares of the enemy and from all adversity: shield, too, each one of us by thy constant protection, so that, supported by thine example and thine aid, we may be able to live piously, to die holily, and to obtain eternal happiness in heaven. Amen.
