You can’t make this stuff up…
It’s Time for the “Soccer Game for Peace”!
Meet the Official Mascot, Plim-Plim:
The Vatican has introduced the official mascot of the upcoming “Interreligious Match for Peace”. Please welcome…. PLIM PLIM!
Yes, Plim Plim plays soccer with the “Pope”, and no doubt this will bring on a gigantic wave of peace that will flood the world with luv, harmony, mutual respect, and brotherhood! You see, Plim Plim is a big fan of the “Co-Exist” ideology, as Vatican Radio was only too happy to point out:
Vatican Radio’s article on this — in Spanish — can be found at this link.
If you’re not familiar with what all this “Soccer for Peace” hype is about, check the following post for the background:
Against this laughable nonsense, the true Catholic Church knows only one way to bring about true and lasting peace. This way is outlined in two beautiful encyclicals of Pope Pius XI:
Besides, in 1910, Pope St. Pius X sternly refuted the errors of the so-called “Sillonists,” errors most strongly held and disseminated today by “Pope” Francis and his Modernist sect. Take a good and careful look at what Pope Pius X teaches here:
We wish to draw your attention, Venerable Brethren, to this distortion of the Gospel and to the sacred character of Our Lord Jesus Christ, God and man, prevailing within the Sillon and elsewhere. As soon as the social question is being approached, it is the fashion in some quarters to first put aside the divinity of Jesus Christ, and then to mention only His unlimited clemency, His compassion for all human miseries, and His pressing exhortations to the love of our neighbor and to the brotherhood of men.
True, Jesus has loved us with an immense, infinite love, and He came on earth to suffer and die so that, gathered around Him in justice and love, motivated by the same sentiments of mutual charity, all men might live in peace and happiness. But for the realization of this temporal and eternal happiness, He has laid down with supreme authority the condition that we must belong to His Flock, that we must accept His doctrine, that we must practice virtue, and that we must accept the teaching and guidance of Peter and his [true] successors. Further, whilst Jesus was kind to sinners and to those who went astray, He did not respect their false ideas, however sincere they might have appeared. He loved them all, but He instructed them in order to convert them and save them.
Whilst He called to Himself in order to comfort them, those who toiled and suffered, it was not to preach to them the jealousy of a chimerical equality. Whilst He lifted up the lowly, it was not to instill in them the sentiment of a dignity independent from, and rebellious against, the duty of obedience. Whilst His heart overflowed with gentleness for the souls of good-will, He could also arm Himself with holy indignation against the profaners of the House of God, against the wretched men who scandalized the little ones, against the authorities who crush the people with the weight of heavy burdens without putting out a hand to lift them. He was as strong as he was gentle. He reproved, threatened, chastised, knowing, and teaching us that fear is the beginning of wisdom, and that it is sometimes proper for a man to cut off an offending limb to save his body.
Finally, He did not announce for future society the reign of an ideal happiness from which suffering would be banished; but, by His lessons and by His example, He traced the path of the happiness which is possible on earth and of the perfect happiness in heaven: the royal way of the Cross. These are teachings that it would be wrong to apply only to one’s personal life in order to win eternal salvation; these are eminently social teachings, and they show in Our Lord Jesus Christ something quite different from an inconsistent and impotent humanitarianism.

Now this is a true Pope speaking against the errors of our day, specifically against the Freemasonic-humanitarian junk about a “common brotherhood” that is “united in love” through a “reconciliation of all religions.”
A few days ago, Catholics celebrated the 100th anniversary of the holy death of this very St. Pius X — take a look at the following link to see how Francis reacted to it:
