The Absolute Truth About Coronavirus

April 16th, 2020 by Vigilo

It’s time to reveal the absolute truth about the coronavirus…covid19…Chinese Communist virus…

This truth is not regarding its origin, or the diabolical plans of Bill Gates, or the Wuhan P4 lab, and such… there are plenty of places elsewhere for that. However, this absolute truth about the covid19 coronavirus, concerns the fact that God has permitted it to come into existence, and has allowed it to spread across the world. This is not meant to address specific cases, and prayerfully, those who have succumbed to the virus were able to make amends with God.

Now, Before continuing, I acknowledge that I am not a saint, so please excuse me if the delivery comes across as anything but perfectly charitable. It is just that, sometimes simply pointing out truths will sting those whom are the most in need of them.

This coronavirus, permitted by God, has become a supernatural spotlight on man, exposing truths which otherwise have been hidden or obfuscated until now. It also has greatly diminished many evils, notably, many abortion clinics are closed, and sinful nightclubs are empty.

For the truths exposed, we can see them in every individual… the pious, and the power hungry, the indifferent, and the devout.

The purpose of this article though, is to extrapolate on the bright light shown upon the Catholic Church.

Throughout all of history, in the face of plagues, and in the face of wars; in persecutions and executions, the Catholic Church has always been willing, through it’s clergy, by the grace of God, to provide soul saving sacraments to the faithful. Because as tough as the aforementioned trials may be, they are nothing when compared to the infinitely important salvation of the soul. Further, the clergyman’s very vocation is to administer these sacraments. He is, so to say, defined by them.

And in this time, with the threat of coronavirus, we are able to find peace in knowing that our faith and our Church, which Jesus Christ left for us, is there for us as always. It is prudent and responsible to take precautions. But more than that, we must remember that a virus, manmade or not, can only kill the body. What is of utmost importance is God, who judges our soul.

And so, through the True Church of Jesus Christ, the Catholic Church, we are able to navigate this world without fear.

Naturally, when acknowledging the bright light shown upon the Catholic Church, we can not ignore that which is NOT the Church. Namely, we all have seen the cockroaches of the Novus Ordo / Vatican 2 sect scurry out of the bright light, and into their shadows. For so long, they posed as “Catholics”, took over the Vatican, wrote ‘Catholic’ on the signs of their buildings, fooled numerous souls into thinking they were “Catholic”….but when it came to serving souls in this trying time, they could only display the void they spiritually harbored all along … and they scattered like cockroaches, because they are NOT the Church.

Where are they? Where are these Novus Ordo / Vatican 2 sect clergy?

Now, one might give the hapless defense saying, “The state has closed churches, what can they do about it?”

Well, by divine law, the state has no right to close the Church or forbid sacraments. But what is most damning here, is that many states, including the one from which I write, have categorized religious organizations as ESSENTIAL. The Vatican 2 sect, of which Jorge Bergoglio is the head (whose stage name is “‘pope’ Francis”), shut themselves down without state mandate!

The devout Catholics already know that the counterfeit church has invalidated the ‘Mass’, changed the ‘sacraments’, and promulgated heresies….proving it NOT to be Catholic. But there are still a great many souls still in that false church, who until now have been able to worm their way out of acknowledging this truth. Sometimes they claimed ignorance, family ties, human respect, convenience, etc. But what now? Their so called church has abandoned them. It now is all in the open that these fake priests don’t actually care for souls.

How many souls are awaiting Baptism? Matrimony? Confession? Confirmation? Extreme Unction? (which doesn’t even exist in the false church)

And for their ‘flock’, after decades of being able, in their minds, to avoid confronting the wrongs of the Novus Ordo / Vatican 2 sect, they now are faced with the big bold line between the Catholic Church and this imposter religion. Of course, to any Catholic who knows his faith, the line was already there. But to those who went out of their way NOT to learn the faith, NOT to be confronted with the painful reality that their church was not Catholic….where did all that effort get them?

Here! The point in which God now has shown the light and made it quite clear to them that souls are not the primary concern of the Novus Ordo Religion.

Now what can the Novus Ordo followers who call themselves ‘Catholics’ say? They personally see with their own eyes that the sect they pretended was ‘Catholic’ will refuse sacraments to those seemingly of good disposition. Something the actual Catholic Church can not do.

For these Novus Ordo followers, Catholic Church teaching was deflected… the heresies of the Novus Ordo deflected…the changing ‘sacraments’ deflected… the protestantized ‘Mass’ deflected… but what now? How can one honestly deflect the fact that the Novus Ordo clergy has personally shown them that they care not for souls? How can one deflect the fact that they shut down churches and refuse sacraments because of a coronavirus? They simply can not deflect any longer.

It is time that the decision must be made… the choice to stay on the wrong side of the line, in the counter church…or to finally cross the line, and join the Catholic Church of the ages.

What more reason can be given to not see the truth? There is none.

All that remains now is the free will to offend God or not. What more reasons can be given that one would ignore the truth and remain in the false church? What is holding one back from leaving the church that has shown itself to be a fraud, and instead, joining the Catholic Church founded by Jesus Christ?

Is it ‘too strict’ for modern times? Are the Mary-like standards for modest clothing not modern enough? Is it just too inconvenient to truly learn the faith and catechism and all that goes along with it? Is it for want of human respect? Is it worldly pleasures?

Christ died for us, God gave us our life.

Is it too much to ask that we follow disciplines given to us through His Church?!

Is it too much to ask that we follow the commandments and the guidelines for modest clothing as to not offend God?! Are we slaves to Christ, or slaves to fashion and comfort?

Is it too much to ask to be learned of the faith that is supposed to be the most important thing in our life?! How can we fulfill our purpose, to know, to love, and to serve God…if we refuse to learn how?!

Is it too much to ask to put God first, ahead of our co-workers, friends, and family?! Would you rather acknowledge an adultery as legitimate and offend God, instead of offend the adulterers and obey God?

Is it too much to ask to not watch the sinful movie, listen to that sinful music, take part in that sinful activity?! Is it really worth losing your soul over?

About human respect… do not forget that Christ came “to set a man at variance.” That is to say, not that this was the end or design of the coming of our Saviour; but that his coming and his doctrine would have this effect, by reason of the obstinate resistance that many would make, and of their persecuting all such as should adhere to him. (Read Matthew Chapter 10)

In the Novus Ordo church, many of these things get the ‘look the other way’ treatment, if not actual encouragement. But you know that they always were and always will be offensive to God. So you do have a choice to make with your free will.

You can choose to remain comfortable… stay in the false church.. and do things which you know are offensive to God. But know it is only because you are lying to yourself, because you know that the false church permits such things, not the Catholic Church.

How can you possibly continue in the teachings of faith and morals from a false church, when that same false church has demonstrated to you that it cares not for your soul?! Since it cares not for your soul, then why would you follow it in faith and morals?!

So will you respond to this grace God has given you? The bright light of the coronavirus was revealed the truth in a way that can not be deflected and ignored any longer. How will you respond? Will you be a coward and give in to satan and return to that which you know is not right.. or will you save your soul and leave the false church and the false popes of Roncalli (John XIII) through Bergoglio (Francis)?

God gave you the grace, you have the free will to respond.

The Holy Catholic Mass

January 3rd, 2020 by Vigilo

From Novus Ordo Watch


How the Vatican II Church transformed the August Sacrifice of the Altar into a Liturgical “Happy Meal”

Nowhere is the apostate nature of the Vatican II religion more evident than in what it has done to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, which is the true and perfect worship which alone is per se acceptable to the Most Holy Trinity. Thick tomes could be — and have been — written on the liturgical changes perpetrated by the Vatican II Sect, and certainly it is beyond the scope of this page to address them all. Rather, on this page we will present an overview of what has changed and then point you to resources that provide further details:

Direct Comparison: Traditional Latin Mass of the Ages vs. New Mass of “Pope” Paul VI (1969)

As the central act of Catholic worship, the liturgical actions, gestures, and prayers of the Holy Mass reflect the Catholic Faith to a tee. In all its details, the Catholic Mass reflects what Catholics believe, and vice versa: What Catholics believe is reflected in the Holy Mass. It therefore follows that if someone were to change the liturgical actions or prayers of the Holy Mass substantially, this would necessarily change or impact the belief of Catholics. A common Catholic adage is that the law of prayer is the law of belief: lex orandi, lex credendi. Therefore, whenever changes were made to the Catholic Mass in the past, these changes were minor and never substantial, and complete orthodoxy was always guaranteed so that the faithful would always be nourished with pure and sound doctrine in this principal act of worship of the Most Holy Trinity.

In fact, the Catholic Church teaches clearly that she is infallible and spotless in the promulgation of her sacramental rites and sacred laws imposed upon all. It is not possible for the Catholic Church to promulgate a sacramental rite that is intrinsically invalid, impious, evil, or otherwise harmful to souls. In fact, the Council of Trent under Pope Pius IV hurls an anathema (“let him be excommunicated”) at anyone who would dare to suggest that the Church’s sacramental rites are an incentive to impiety:

If any one saith, that the ceremonies, vestments, and outward signs, which the Catholic Church makes use of in the celebration of masses, are incentives to impiety, rather than offices of piety; let him be anathema.

(Council of Trent, Session 22, Canon 7)

Likewise, Pope Pius XII taught as follows:

Certainly the loving Mother is spotless in the Sacraments, by which she gives birth to and nourishes her children; in the faith which she has always preserved inviolate; in her sacred laws imposed on all; in the evangelical counsels which she recommends; in those heavenly gifts and extraordinary graces through which, with inexhaustible fecundity, she generates hosts of martyrs, virgins and confessors.

(Pope Pius XII, Encyclical Mystici Corporis Christi, n. 66)

There are many other examples of this kind, but these suffice to make clear that the sacramental rites of the Catholic Church are without blemish and are of themselves conducive to the salvation of souls. This should not be surprising, given that the Blessed Lord Jesus Christ Himself established the Catholic Church for the salvation of souls and promised that the gates of hell would never prevail against her. If this Church could promulgate sacramental rites that are harmful to souls and even invalid, the gates of hell would definitely have prevailed, and the Church would be worthless, nay dangerous!

As all practicing Catholics assist at the Holy Mass at least once a week (on Sundays), as far as they are able, it is clear that the Faith is taught them principally and most often specifically in the liturgical rite of the Holy Mass. It stands to reason, therefore, that in order to change the faith of Catholics, to change what they believe and how they believe it, it was necessary for the enemies who had infiltrated Holy Mother Church to change the liturgical rites and prayers of the Holy Mass.

The Modernist takeover of the Vatican in 1958 could never have been successful if they had only changed the beliefs on paper. Most Catholics are not familiar with papal encyclicals (which are addressed to clerics, anyway, and not to laymen), nor do they read conciliar documents; but all practicing Catholics assist at Holy Mass at least once a week. Just as the secular-sexual revolution of the 1960’s was transported into every home via rock music on the radio, and mostly thereby produced its evil fruit in abundance, so the New Faith of the Modernists could not spread into every Catholic heart and soul except by imposing on the faithful a “New Mass” that would no longer be an expression of the pure Catholic Faith of the ages but of the poisonous new Modernistic religion that had begun to be introduced and sanctioned by John XXIII and his successors, especially Paul VI.

Interestingly enough, something very similar occurred when the Anglican heretics broke with Rome in the 16th century. They changed the Mass and sacraments to express the new faith they were preaching. In his magisterial document declaring the invalidity of the Anglican “priesthood” and “Masses,” Pope Leo XIII pointed out what could very well be said of the Modernist revolutionaries of the 1960’s:

Being fully cognizant of the necessary connection between faith and worship, between “the law of believing and the law of praying” [lex orandi, lex credendi], under a pretext of returning to the primitive form, they corrupted the Liturgical Order in many ways to suit the errors of the [Protestant] reformers. For this reason, in the whole Ordinal not only is there no clear mention of the sacrifice, of consecration, of the priesthood (sacerdotium), and of the power of consecrating and offering sacrifice but, as we have just stated, every trace of these things which had been in such prayers of the Catholic rite as they had not entirely rejected, was deliberately removed and struck out.

(Pope Leo XIII, Apostolic Constitution Apostolicae Curae, n. 30)

Note how Pope Leo emphasizes the connection between faith and worship — it is essential! The infamous founder of Protestantism, Martin Luther, once said: “Tolle Missam, tolle Ecclesiam” — “If you take away the Mass, you take away the Church.” He was right on this point, in a certain sense. Note also that Leo XIII says that the Anglicans made changes to the Mass “under the pretext of returning to the primitive form,” which is precisely what Paul VI and his cohorts claimed they were doing when introducing the New Mass, and which is precisely what Pope Pius XII had condemned in 1947 as “antiquarianism”:

Assuredly it is a wise and most laudable thing to return in spirit and affection to the sources of the sacred liturgy. For research in this field of study, by tracing it back to its origins, contributes valuable assistance towards a more thorough and careful investigation of the significance of feast-days, and of the meaning of the texts and sacred ceremonies employed on their occasion. But it is neither wise nor laudable to reduce everything to antiquity by every possible device. Thus, to cite some instances, one would be straying from the straight path were he to wish the altar restored to its primitive tableform; were he to want black excluded as a color for the liturgical vestments; were he to forbid the use of sacred images and statues in Churches; were he to order the crucifix so designed that the divine Redeemer’s body shows no trace of His cruel sufferings; and lastly were he to disdain and reject polyphonic music or singing in parts, even where it conforms to regulations issued by the Holy See.

…Just as obviously unwise and mistaken is the zeal of one who in matters liturgical would go back to the rites and usage of antiquity, discarding the new patterns introduced by disposition of divine Providence to meet the changes of circumstances and situation.

This way of acting bids fair to revive the exaggerated and senseless antiquarianism to which the illegal Council of Pistoia gave rise….

(Pope Pius XII, Encyclical Mediator Dei, nn. 62-64; underlining added.)

Does this not sound familiar?

On a side note: It is probably not insignificant that the New Mass was promulgated on April 3, 1969, which was not only Holy Thursday but also the first day of the Jewish Passover (recall that Christ established His True Sacrifice of the Mass at the same time when the Jews were celebrating Passover, in 33 AD). On that fateful day, the papal impostor Paul VI introduced what he claimed was simply a “reform” of the Catholic Mass based on “more ancient liturgical sources” (see Paul VI, Missale Romanum). He called it the “new order of the Mass,” or, in the Latin original, the “novus Ordo Missae.” This “new order of the Mass,” a term perhaps more pregnant with meaning than he then realized, gradually came to be known as the “Novus Ordo Mass,” or simply the “New Mass.” The term “Novus Ordo” (“new order”) has since come to be used to describe not only the liturgical worship of the Vatican II Sect but the entire new religion that this New Mass expresses as well. Therefore, we use “Novus Ordo” as an adjective to refer to the entire Neo-Modernist religion that was begun by John XXIII, openly manifested itself at Vatican II, found its perfect expression in the New Mass, and continues to masquerade as Catholicism to this very day.

Below you will find some more information about the true Catholic Mass, contrasted in words and pictures with the new, Novus Ordo “Mass” of Paul VI and the new religion of the Novus Ordo Church (for important information on Benedict XVI’s 2007 Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificumplease click here).

See for yourself: The True Mass vs. the New Mass

Above you see a picture of the Traditional Catholic Mass (click photo to enlarge it). An objective observer would describe it as mysterious, glorious, reverent, awe-inspiring, and holy, lifting the mind and soul towards Heaven. It is otherworldly and is clearly directed away from man to the transcendent God, the Most Holy Trinity.

The pictures that follow are fairly typical depictions of the Novus Ordo Mass. They are by no means “unusual” or “extreme” but quite mainstream. Reverence, mystery, godliness, and devotion are noticeably absent. The New Mass features not an all-holy Sacrifice offered to a transcendent Triune God, but a meal that is shared by a community closed in on itself and celebrating itself. The “celebration” is banal, commonplace, and dull, and of itself it cannot possibly attract devotion or vocations to the holy priesthood, which has been stripped of all dignity and all that made it special, the priest having been reduced, in essence, to a glorified social worker who is not allowed to marry (not exactly an exciting vocation for any healthy and sane boy or young man).

It is clear that a New Mass also needs a New Priesthood, and with both there came new church buildings, that is, houses of worship that, likewise, no longer represented the Catholic Faith but rather reflected the New Religion, the new teachings of the Modernists, which are in manifest contradiction with true Catholicism (the very fact that everything had to be changed after Vatican II to be in harmony with the New Religion and its new hippie “Gospel of Man” is proof enough that the contradiction with the Catholic Faith is real and not merely apparent).

Hence, with the arrival of the Novus Ordo religion, there also came new churches, some of them already as early as the 1950’s, with the approval of the local (Modernist-in-hiding) bishop. Generally, Novus Ordo church buildings are characterized (just like their new faith and their new liturgies) by looking banal, sterile, static, and totally unlike traditional Catholic churches, the purpose of whose very architecture is to assist in lifting souls up to Heaven and to allow them to pray and think of heavenly things, in accordance with Holy Scripture: “Mind the things that are above, not the things that are upon the earth” (Colossians 3:2). Here is a clear example showing the stark contrast that exists between the two religions as expressed in their respective architecture:

built-by-catholics-and-novus-ordos

Traditional Catholic churches are houses of God, because Christ resides in them in the tabernacle under the appearance of bread. Novus Ordo churches, by contrast, are nothing but gathering spaces in which the “community” comes to “share a meal” and celebrate itself (hence also the priest no longer faces God in the tabernacle but now faces the people, just as Protestant ministers do). Typically, Novus Ordo churches look so bad that they can be mistaken for libraries, community centers, medical buildings, Protestant churches, or the local police station. And quite often, Novus Ordo churches are absolutely hideous and ugly, as you can see in some more examples below.

Defenders of the Novus Ordo religion and its new doctrines and churches will often go through all sorts of hair-splitting points about how really no substantial change has occurred and everything is just orthodox enough still so as not to breach Catholic dogma and piety. This nonsense is best countered by sticking to the visible facts of what takes place and what is believed in Novus Ordo Land. The proof is in the pudding: We have a new religion on our hands, new churches, new doctrines, a new priesthood; and all of this is intrinsically connected with the almost-complete disappearance of true Catholicism from the face of the earth. It should stand to reason that such occurrences are not coincidental — a new religion is not imposed by accident. Just as this world could not have been the result of chance or random occurrences among particles, so this new religion with all its heresy, impiety, and wickedness, so cleverly disseminated throughout the world and injected into the souls of unsuspecting Catholics, also requires to have been carried out by means of a master plan to defeat the Catholic Church and put up a religion that serves man, not God.

Some Examples of the New Church Buildings:

This first picture depicts what the Modernists call “Most Holy Trinity Church” in Vienna, Austria, a country that used to be very Catholic and still has many gorgeous Catholic churches. This church was designed by the Modernist Fritz Wotruba (d. 1975), a man notorious for creating bizarre “art”, including nude sculptures. View an image of his drawing “Sitting One” here. More of Wotruba’s impious “art” can be viewed here. This Wotruba “church” was built under and approved by the infamous Modernist, “Cardinal” Franz König (d. 2004), a man appointed “cardinal” by John XXIII in 1958, just a few weeks after the death of Pope Pius XII.

What this next photo shows is not an incineration plant in Detroit but the Novus Ordo “cathedral” in Liverpool, England, supposedly to honor Christ the King. Examples like this can be multiplied ad nauseam, and you have probably seen similar hideous or strange-looking churches yourself.

Another great example of the bizarre hideousness of the new churches, whose architectures simply expresses the new Modernistic religion, is the church of “Mary Queen” in southern Germany (see the inside here, if you dare). Needless to say, such horrible architecture is likewise no accident. In fact, it has a name: Brutalism. “Brutalist architecture is a movement in architecture that flourished from the 1950s to the mid-1970s, descending from the modernist architectural movement of the early 20th century”, according to Wikipedia.

Despite the horrendous ugliness of the above-shown buildings, there is still one Novus Ordo church that tops them all: the so-called Nevigeser Wallfahrtsdom, or “Mary Queen of Peace Church,” officially a Wallfahrtskirche (“church of pilgrimage” [!]), located in Velbert-Neviges, Germany. Here are two photos of this catastrophe:

So… do you dare look inside?

This, ladies and gentlemen, is the face of the New Church, the Novus Ordo Religion officially present in today’s Vatican. If you find it offensive and impious, it’s because that’s exactly what it is. And if it offends human beings, how much more must it offend God Himself?

The New Religion has a different face from the True Catholic Religion. The ugly buildings, the strange “Masses” and other liturgical actions, are merely the outward sign of its new, ugly, and offensive theology.

More examples can be found through the following link:

In case you are inclined to agree with our assessment of the situation with regard to the Vatican II Sect, its false theology, its ugly churches, and its offensive liturgical worship service, the Novus Ordo Missae, you are probably wondering what to do now. To help answer this question and guide you through the jungle that is out there, we have compiled many good resources and offer some practical advice in the following link:

By the way, in the Novus Ordo Church, this is what a “papal Mass” looks like. They can call it “noble simplicity”, but it’s still the same Modernist junk:

Instead of partying and drinking to usher in the New Year, Catholics can best prepare for the everlasting years by focusing on the One Who governs the years and determines when we will arrive at our final year before Judgment. It is far better to be in the mindset of being mindful always of the Four Last Things, Death, Judgment, Heaven or, God forbid, hell.

OLD YEAR AND NEW YEAR (From Lapsus est Annus)

A year is dead, a year is born;
Thus time flies by on silent wing:
Thou, Lord, alone canst guide our course
And safe to heaven Thy people bring.
For all past gifts we render thanks;
For graces new we humbly pray.
Oh, grant that we and those we love
May ne’er from faith and duty stray.

O Lord, our daily wants supply;
Protect from sickness and disease;
And deign to give, O God of love
The blessings of unbroken peace.

Oh, blot out all our ancient sins
And give us strength to fall no more;
When fight is o’er and victory won,
Then crown us on the eternal shore.

For all the old year’s sins we grieve;
Our hearts we consecrate to Thee.
Grant us, when all our years are sped,
Our heavenly father’s face to see.

Welcoming the New Year

SUPPLICATION AND RESOLUTIONS FOR THE NEW YEAR

    O Eternal Father, after having thanked thy infinite bounty for thy exceeding benefits in the past, we humbly implore pardon for our manifold sins and negligences, for the time we have consumed and wasted in vanities and in things that profit not unto salvation, and for the woeful want of correspondence with Thy graces which we have so habitually manifested.

    But filled with confidence in Thy mercy, so lavishly displayed in a multitude of ways, we ask Thy blessings upon our good purposes and resolutions. For now we renew the sacred promises we made in Baptism, when we first became Thy children and heirs of the heavenly kingdom, and we renounce Satan with all his works and pomps.

    Firmly convinced that the salvation of our immortal souls is the one great business of life, the purpose for which we have come into the world, we solemnly resolve for the future not only to do all in our power to avoid every grievous sin in thought, word, and deed but also to shun every unnecessary occasion that might imperil our souls. We further resolve to fulfill with greater exactness and fidelity the duties of our station in life, to give more attention to our progress in things spiritual, to be more devoted to holy Mass, to receive the Sacraments more frequently, and to pray more often and more fervently.

    Bless, O my God, these good resolutions which we offer to Thee at this, the threshold of a new year. Give us Thy precious grace and make us truly wise. The days and years of our life are passing so swiftly away. Help us, in Thy mercy, to utilize them, as we ought to do, for Thy greater honor and glory, for the good of our neighbor, and for our sanctification. The night cometh in which no man can work longer; soon, at best, we shall have to appear before Thee to render an account of our stewardship. May we then be found worthy to receive from Thee that divine welcome: “Well done, good and faithful servants, enter into the joy of thy Lord.”

    O God, Whose mercy is without measure and the treasure of Whose goodness is infinite, we give thanks to Thy most comforting Majesty for the gifts conferred upon us, and we beg Thee continually through Thy clemency, that Thou Who grantest the request of those who ask Thee, mayest not abandon them now but rather dispose them for future rewards. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

PRAYER FOR A BLESSING ON THE NEW YEAR

    O sacred and adorable Trinity, hear our prayers on behalf of our holy Father the Pope, our Bishops, our clergy, and for all that are in authority over us. Bless, we beseech Thee, during the coming year, the whole Catholic Church; convert heretics and unbelievers; soften the hearts of sinners so that they may return to Thy friendship; give prosperity to our country and peace among the nations of the world; pour down Thy blessings upon our friends, relatives, and acquaintances, and upon our enemies, if we have any; assist the poor and the sick; have pity on the souls of those whom this year has taken from us; and do Thou be merciful to those who during the coming year will be summoned before Thy judgment seat. May all our actions be preceded by Thy inspirations and carried on by Thy assistance, so that all our prayers and works, having been begun in Thee, may likewise be ended through Thee. Amen.

THE SHORTNESS OF LIFE (Psalm LXXXIX)

   Lord, Thou hast been our refuge from generation to generation. Before the mountains were made, or the earth and the world was formed; from eternity to eternity Thou art God. Thou makest man to return to atoms, and sayest, return, ye children of men. For a thousand years in Thy sight are as yesterday when it is past, And as a watch in the night. Thou carriest them (men) away as with a flood; they are as a sleep. In the morning they are like grass which growth up. In the morning it flourisheth and growth up; in the evening it fadeth, growth dry, and withereth. For in Thine anger we are consumed, and in Thy wrath we are troubled. Thou hast set our iniquities before Thine eyes, our secret sins in the light of Thy countenance. For all our days are past away in Thy wrath; our years are consumed as a sigh.

    The days of our years are threescore and ten; and if in the strong they are fourscore years, yet their pride is but labor and sorrow; for it is soon past, and we fly away. Who knoweth the power of Thine anger, and Thy wrath according to the fear that is due Thee? So teach us to number our days, that we may have a heart of wisdom. Return, O’Lord, how long? And be entreated in favor of Thy servants. O satisfy us in the morning with Thy loving-kindness, that we may rejoice and be glad all our days. Make us glad according to the days in which we have been afflicted and the years wherein we have seen evil. Look upon Thy servants and upon their works, and direct their children. And the gracious kindness of the Lord Our God be upon us, and direct Thou the works of our hands upon us; Yea, the work of our hands, do Thou direct.

THE EVENING OF LIFE (From the Rerum Deus)

O Strength, and stay upholden all creation,
who ever dost Thyself unmoved abide,
yet day by day the light in due gradation
from hour to hour through its changes guide:
Grant to life’s day a calm, unclouded ending,
and eve, untouched by shadows of decay,
the brightness of a holy death-bed blending
with dawning glories of th’ eternal day.

Hear us, O Father, gracious and forgiven,
And Thou, O Christ, the co-eternal Word,
Who, with the Holy Ghost, by all things living
Now and to endless ages art adored.

PRAYER TO CONSECRATE THE NEW YEAR

    O Sweet Savior of my Soul! From the depths of my heart I salute Thee at the beginning of this year. O my Infant Savior, I most confidently approach Thy crib and implore Thee to give efficacy by Thy Precious Blood to the resolutions I now make, of living from this moment in the manner I shall wish to have done when time shall be about to close forever on me.

    May each action of the coming year be offered in union with the adorable actions of Thy mortal life; may every intention be renounced save that of laboring for Thy love and glory. O merciful Jesus! By the helplessness of Thy Holy Infancy, strengthen my weakness and fortify my resolution nevermore to offend Thee. Amen.

As we enter the New Year, I thought it a good time to stay grounded as to the current situation in the Church and the world. And as always, when dealing with prophecies, keep in mind what the Church teaches about contemporary prophecies.

In all the frightening confusion, difficulties, and distress we have to endure in the face of the eclipse of the holy Catholic Church by the Modernist Vatican II Sect, it is good to call to mind now and again that what has happened since the death of Pope Pius XII in 1958 is something that has, in one way or another, been predicted and foretold in Holy Scripture, Sacred Tradition, and approved private revelations.

The following list consists of links to posts and pages on this web site that mention, directly or indirectly, various predictions of the ecclesiastical catastrophe that has befallen the Catholic world since Vatican II, or that prescribe remedies to certain evils which, if not applied, will lead to precisely the sort of situation we find ourselves in at this time. We must remember that this terrible affliction for Holy Mother Church was foreknown and preordained by God from all eternity. Just as Our Lord’s Sacred Passion was not a defeat of His Mission but its very essence, so this “Mystical” Passion of the Church is likewise part of the divine plan. Let us remain faithful, then, to the true Church as to the true Messiah, who will restore His Mystical Body no less miraculously than He restored His own Body at the Resurrection.

If you thought that the whole Mother Earth/Pachamama/Gaia worship at the Vatican was simply an excess of the turbulent Amazon Synod and therefore a thing of an inglorious past, you are sorely mistaken. Far from it being a one-time aberration, it is now becoming a recurring theme that is popping up again and again in Novus Ordo Land.

Not only was the idol worshipped before and during the Amazon Synod in and around the Vatican, even at the closing “Mass” in St. Peter’s Basilica; an image of it was also recently featured on a Christmas card mailed out by the Franciscans International, who even defended the move when challenged. And of course Francis even published a book entitled Our Mother Earth recently.

While the false pope’s useful idiots are still trying to argue that this nasty pagan figure isn’t really Pachamama — although even Francis has admitted as much — or if it is, then that’s OK because Pachamama is really the Virgin Mary, or, in any case, not an idol (even “Cardinals” Marc Ouellet and Christoph Schonborn have now weighed in), the Vatican continues to push Mother Earth worship ever further into the consciousness of those still trapped in the Novus Ordo religion.

Case in point: this year’s Christmas concert in Vatican City. It was held on Saturday, Dec. 14, in the Paul VI audience hall, which is the usual venue for this annual spectacle.

According to a report by Gloria TV, there were approximately 5,000 people in attendance, and another 2,000,000 watched it on TV. At roughly 105 minutes into the program, a young indigenous woman from Latin America was brought onto the stage. Here’s what happened next:

She asked the audience to cross their arms over their chest and to feel a strong vibration, explaining that this is “your heart” but also “the heart of Mother Earth.”

Where there is silence, she explained, there is “the Spirit” who allows “to hear the message of Mother Earth.” She added that “for us indigenous peoples, Mother Earth, the Hicha Guaia, is everything” because the demon Guaia – a synonym for Pachamama – “gives us food, sacred water, medicinal plants” and therefore receives sacrifices like “the placenta and the first hair of man which are cut.”

Cardinals and bishops present at this “catechesis” eagerly followed the woman’s instructions.

(“Francis’ Christmas Concert Included Pachamama Catechesis (Video)”Gloria TV, Dec. 26, 2019; italics given.)

A video clip of this part of the concert may be watched here:

In the full concert video, this incident occurs beginning at the 1:44:32 mark.

Long-time Vatican reporter and commentator Marco Tosatti also reported on this abomination, quoting the young woman as follows:

You will feel a strong vibration. It’s the heart. Your heart, but also the heart of Mother Earth.

On the other side, where there is silence, is the Spirit. The Spirit who allows you to feel the message of the Mother.

For us indigenous peoples, Mother Earth, the Hicha Gueia, is everything. It is the Mother who gives us food, sacred water, medicinal plants; and what we offer to the earth is to pay homage to her, the placenta and the first hair we cut. For us, Mother Earth is fundamental, our connection with her is constant, how the pulse feels, how the heart feels.

(Translation by DeepL)

Everything is connected, see?

You can’t make this stuff up, folks. Earth worship is now par for the course in Bergoglio’s Vatican. This is light years beyond turning a blind eye to adultery, which, although horrific enough, is practically a peccadillo by comparison.

Then again, what can you expect from an event taking place in a hall whose stage looks like this?

For those not familiar with it: What you see in the above image is a gigantic bronze sculpture called La Resurrezione (“The Resurrection”), perpetrated by Pericle Fazzini (1913-1987). This diabolical piece of “art” has been sitting there as the backdrop for indoor “papal” audiences in the serpentine Paul VI audience hall since 1977. It is out there in the open for anyone who can be bothered to look. Why no one has run away in utter horror at the sight of this blasphemous junk, is anyone’s guess. It has been reported that there is not a single crucifix or other Catholic work of art in the entire hall.

Call it what you will: Gaia, Pachamama, Mother Earth — worship of this demon is becoming the “new normal” in Vatican City, and it won’t take long before it spreads through the rest of Novus Ordo Land. The worship of creation is gradually replacing the worship of the Creator, and this is happening under the pretext of caring for the environment. One is reminded of St. Paul’s teaching in his Epistle to the Romans:

For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and injustice of those men that detain the truth of God in injustice: Because that which is known of God is manifest in them. For God hath manifested it unto them. For the invisible things of him, from the creation of the world, are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made; his eternal power also, and divinity: so that they are inexcusable. Because that, when they knew God, they have not glorified him as God, or given thanks; but became vain in their thoughts, and their foolish heart was darkened. For professing themselves to be wise, they became fools. And they changed the glory of the incorruptible God into the likeness of the image of a corruptible man, and of birds, and of fourfooted beasts, and of creeping things. Wherefore God gave them up to the desires of their heart, unto uncleanness, to dishonour their own bodies among themselves. Who changed the truth of God into a lie; and worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.

(Romans 1:18-25)

Idolatry is the next logical step after apostasy. And remember, Francis said earlier this year that God wills there to be a diversity of religions, so it’s all good because it comes with divine approval, according to the apostate Jesuit. “Our differences are necessary”, he said addressing interreligious youngsters in Mozambique. This new, false gospel is being channeled wherever Bergoglio is in control — and not even Christmas is safe from it!

So now people have been taught to cross their arms, feel their heart, and channel their inner Gaia.

Perhaps we can now understand why Francis’ hideous pectoral cross shows a (false) shepherd with his arms crossed.

The Novus Ordo organization Franciscans International, headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, has emailed out a virtual Christmas card to its supporters.

Or rather, they sent out what is supposed to be a Christmas card. You can see it displayed above and find it linked here. Who would have thought that good ol’ Pachamama of Amazon Synod infamy — also known as Gaia — would make an appearance in it?

The card bears the title Visitatio Mariae, which means “Visitation of Mary”. Taken at face value, this would mean that the hideous-looking and nude pregnant Pagan woman squatting in front of the Blessed Mother is St. Elizabeth. That would surely be a sacrilege.

But, not to worry. The text accompanying this electronic “Christmas card”, penned and signed by Franciscans International‘s executive director, “Fr.” Markus Heinze, makes clear that this is not St. Elizabeth but the Pagan earth goddess: “In this picture you see Mary, who we honor as the ‘new Eve’ or Mother of Life, together with Pachamama, who some indigenous peoples honor as the ‘earth mother’”, Mr. Heinze writes.

The remainder of the text is as insipid and mundane as one would expect from Naturalists such as Novus Ordo Franciscans. We produce here the full content of the card:

In the context of the nativity, Luke tells us about the meeting between Mary and her cousin Elizabeth. The two women, both expecting a child, meet each other with attentiveness and sensitivity. At the opening of the Synod, Pope Francis asked us to approach the peoples of the Amazon on our ‘tiptoes’.

In this picture you see Mary, who we honor as the ‘new Eve’ or Mother of Life, together with Pachamama, who some indigenous peoples honor as the ‘earth mother’. Francis of Assisi too describes the earth as our mother in the Canticle.

Celebrating Christmas, I wish that we may approach God and each other on our ‘tiptoes’ so that we experience in these meetings the ‘real living’.

On behalf of Franciscans International,

Markus Heinze, OFM
Executive Director

Yeah, whatever. We’re not going to dignify the “tiptoe” nonsense with any comment.

But there’s something else that needs a little attention. We are told that “Francis of Assisi too describes the earth as our mother in the Canticle [of the Sun].” Yes, indeed, St. Francis spoke of “Mother Earth”, “Brother Sun”, and even “Sister Bodily Death”. But he used these as metaphors and not as objects of worship. Nor did he attempt a syncretistic fusion of Catholicism with Paganism.

By the way, when “Pope” Francis presented St. Francis’ Canticle of the Sun in his environmentalist encyclical Laudato Si’ a few years back, he omitted all (but not only) those parts that make mention of mortal sin. Remember?

It only makes sense: Who wants to be distracted by such antiquated concepts as mortal sin against God while worshipping “Mother Earth”? And don’t say it’s not happening: Vatican “Cardinal” Gianfranco Ravasi showed us how while in Canada a televised Novus Ordo worship service sang Gaia’s praises.

You will have noticed that the digital pseudo-Christmas card from the Franciscans International is graced by a quote — not from the Holy Gospels, mind you, or from the other divinely inspired texts of the New Testament or from one of the Old Testament prophets. No, the quote is from the Jewish existentialist Martin Buber (1878-1965), one of the thinkers from which Francis appears to draw his ideology-disguised-as-Catholicism: “All real living is meeting.”

This is the state of the Novus Ordo religion at the close of the Year of Our Lord 2019.

It looks like Pachamama is going to stick around for a while.
