“By their Fruits you shall know them…” (Mt 7:16)
Francis Insults the Mother of God
The head of the Vatican II Sect, known as “Pope Francis” (Jorge Bergoglio), has managed to shamelessly insult the Blessed Virgin Mary, Mother of God, in one of his daily homilies. On Dec. 20, 2013, the “Holy Father” said the following, as reported by Vatican Radio:
The Mother of Jesus was the perfect icon of silence. From the proclamation of her exceptional maternity at Calvary. The Pope said he thinks about “how many times she remained quiet and how many times she did not say that which she felt in order to guard the mystery of her relationship with her Son,” up until the most raw silence “at the foot of the cross”.
“The Gospel does not tell us anything: if she spoke a word or not… She was silent, but in her heart, how many things [she] told the Lord! ‘You, that day, this and the other that we read, you had told me that he would be great, you had told me that you would have given him the throne of David, his forefather, that he would have reigned forever and now I see him there!’ Our Lady was human! And perhaps she even had the desire to say: ‘Lies! I was deceived!’ John Paul II would say this, speaking about Our Lady in that moment. But she, with her silence, hid the mystery that she did not understand and with this silence allowed for this mystery to grow and blossom in hope.”
(“Pope: Silence Guards one’s Relationship with God”, Vatican Radio, Dec. 20, 2013; red bold added for emphasis.)
This is absolutely outrageous and incredibly revolting! It is blasphemy!
The Blessed Virgin Mary, who is Our Lady of Sorrows and the Co-Redemptrix of mankind, was immaculate from the first moment of her conception, by the merits of Christ applied to her in a singular manner before His Incarnation. She was entirely sinless therefore and never for an instant entertained even the slightest irrerevence to God Most High, much less blasphemy, which accusing God of lying clearly is. In fact, Francis’ supposition of what the Blessed Virgin “perhaps desired to say” is eerily reminiscent of what Eve said to God after being called upon to give a reason for why she had eaten of the forbidden fruit: “The serpent deceived me, and I did eat” (Gen 3:13).
But the Blessed Mother is the New Eve, that is, the Counter-Eve, the reverse of Eve, inasmuch as, unlike Eve, Mary was perfectly obedient to God, so much so that Eve’s “No” to God by eating the forbidden fruit was counteracted by Mary’s “Fiat Mihi” — “Let it be done unto me” (Lk 1:38). In fact, the name Eva (Latin for Eve) beautifully reverses asAve, as in “Ave Maria” (Lk 1:28).
To say, therefore, that the Blessed Virgin could have even so much as entertained the thought of God having lied to her, when the devil is the Father of Lies (Jn 8:44) and God is the Source of all Truth (Jn 14:6), is beyond sickening. It is essentially putting in the mind of the Most Pure Mother of God what was in the mind of Eve when she doubted God’s Word and succumbed to the lies of the devil, thus committing the first sin (see Gen 3:1-6).

It is curious that the official newspaper of the Vatican, L’Osservatore Romano, also covers this frightful homily (see link above), yet leaves out the “Lies! I was deceived!” part. Apparently even the journalist transcribing the sermon realized how offensive and impious this statement is and dared not repeat it.
We must never forget that our Lady was a willing victim. Never was a murmur heard to fall from her lips. There was never a murmur in her heart. Her will was as perfectly at one with the Will of the Divine Victim dying upon the Cross, as it is possible for the will of the creature to be attuned in suffering to the Will of the Creator. She consented as freely, as fully on Calvary to the Passion of Christ, as at Nazareth she had consented to His Incarnation. During the three hours of the first Good Friday, our Lady never wavered. ‘Be it done unto me according to Thy Word’ still expressed all that she would say. Everything was left by her to God. For us men and for our salvation she offered her Son without reserve, and thus was granted to her that which shall be hers for ever, her special place, by itself apart, in the work of man’s Redemption.

This speaks for itself.
Perhaps it is ironic that Francis would utter such a wicked thing about the Great Mother of God in a sermon about silence. We wish Francis would finally take his own advice and shut up! Tom Droleskey hits the nail on the head when he says that loquacious Francis “is the last person in the world [who can] speak about the necessity of silence” (source).
And, while we’re on the topic of silence, you can bet your bottom dollar that this story about Bergoglio’s blasphemy will never be covered in Michael Voris’s popular Vortex broadcast. As we have pointed out so many times in the past, Voris is infected with what we have labeled the “Voris Virus”, the compulsive suppression of any news that flies in the face of the image he wants to project of Francis as a super-orthodox, top-notch conservative Pope. But this, we are sorry to say, is just … lies.
For Voris’ “No Coverage Zone” of Francis’ ubiquitous apostasy, impiety, and blasphemy, we present this fitting graphic he may want to start using from now on:
Holy Writ counsels: “All things have their season, and in their times all things pass under heaven…. A time to keep silence, and a time to speak” (Eccl 3:1,7b).
Clearly, it’s time to speak.
