A walk on the wild side, for sure…
Laudato Si’ in Action:
“Cardinal” Ravasi worships Earth Goddess
The head of the Vatican’s so-called “Pontifical Council for Culture”, “Cardinal” Gianfranco Ravasi, has been spotted worshipping an Andean pagan deity known as Pachamama, a “Mother Earth” goddess. The video below shows Ravasi taking part in the idolatrous rite together with Quechuan natives in Argentina. An apparent Novus Ordo nun is also participating.
As far as culture goes, this is the same “Cardinal” Ravasi who sent a series of tweets in late October 2013 to honor the passing of Lou Reed, a scandalous and lewd American rock singer whose 1972 hit Walk on the Wild Side contained lyrics that included “taboo topics such as transsexuality, drugs, male prostitution and oral sex” (source). Clearly, Ravasi is a perfect candidate for the Vatican under Francis.
Now, as though meaning to echo (or rather, anticipate) the release of Francis’ eco-encyclical Laudato Si, a video has now appeared that shows the bogus “Catholic cardinal” participating in a pagan rite of adoration of the mother earth goddess Pachamama. This took place in November of 2014. Take a look:
The following is our translation of an article on this incident written by Vatican journalist Giuseppe Nardi, originally published on July 20, 2015 at Katholisches.info. Nardi is a conservative/ traditionalist Novus Ordo adherent and an extremely reliable source for news inside and outside the Vatican.
Cardinal Ravasi participates in Idolatry — “Mother Earth” Cult
(Buenos Aires) Curial cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, president of the Pontifical Council for Culture, actively took part in a ceremony of Pachamama worship in Argentina’s San Marcos Sierras. In the Quechuan language, the goddess Pachamama basically means “Mother Earth” or “Mother Cosmos”. It is a relic of pre-Christian, pagan times, which has survived in sections of the Quechua and Aymara Indians of the Andean countries.
The Pachamama goddess, which the Indians believe to be “omnipotent”, is worshipped with sacrifices, especially “coca leaves”, “lucky charms, medicinal herbs, llama fetuses”, [and] “little dolls”, as the Neue Zürcher Zeitung wrote. “At the occult market of La Paz” in Bolivia, “the ingredients for the burnt sacrifice in honor of Pachamama” are mixed together and “faith becomes business”, according to the NZZ.
The animist cult is also practiced in a village of the Central-Argentine province of Cordoba. This is where San Marcos Sierras is located, with its almost 950 inhabitants (2010), approximately 150 km [~93 mi] away from the city of Cordoba, to which Pope Francis had been exiled by the superior of his province in the 1980s. San Marcos Sierras is considered to be the last village to be mostly inhabited by the Indian people of the Comechingones (Henia and Kamiare), which consists of only 5,000 members at this point.
“Courtyard of the Gentiles” with an Idolatrous Cult
The act of adoring Pachamama took place back in November 2014 as part of Ravasi’s “Courtyard of the Gentiles” initiative, which made a stop in Argentina at the time, but did not become known until now through the publication of a video clip. The idolatry was organized by Foro Ecumenico Social (ecumenical-social forum). The most prominent person present at the Mother Earth worship was Cardinal Ravasi, “the cultured one” (ORF) among the Curia’s cardinals. The cardinal was not merely a spectator but an active participant (see video). He had been accompanied to San Marcos Sierras by Theresa Varela, vice-president of the Foro Ecumenico Social and president of the Mision Esperanza foundation, “as well as some of the indigenous population.”
According to inofficial data by the Argentinian authorities, the village’s population has reportedly increased to 3,000 residents since, as there has been a strong influx of Argentines from the country’s biggest cities, of Europeans and white U.S. citizens “of the middle and upper class.” San Marcos Sierras welcomes tourists and is considered a popular destination for members of the hippie movement. A connection to the cult of Panamacha may be presumed.

Shocked? Come on, folks, it’s the Novus Ordo Sect we’re talking about here, so what do you expect?
As we have noted before, the Vatican II apostasy is so blatant at this point that it can easily be recognized and refuted even just by a cursory perusal of Holy Scripture: “For all the gods of the Gentiles are devils: but the Lord made the heavens” (Ps 95:5); “Turn ye not to idols, nor make to yourselves molten gods. I am the Lord your God” (Lev 19:4); “…it shall be manifest that they are no gods, but the work of men’ s hands, and that there is no work of God in them” (Bar 6:50); “This wicked people, that will not hear my words, and that walk in the perverseness of their heart, and have gone after strange gods to serve them, and to adore them: and they shall be as this girdle which is fit for no use” (Jer 13:10).
But then again, “Cardinal” Ravasi was merely following the exhortation of “Pope Saint” John Paul II, who said: “What we have just said must also be applied — although in another way and with the due differences — to activity for coming closer together with the representatives of the non-Christian religions, an activity expressed through dialogue, contacts, prayer in common, investigation of the treasures of human spirituality, in which, as we know well, the members of these religions also are not lacking” (Antipope John Paul II, Encyclical Redemptor Hominis, ch. 6; italics added). As being an admirer of the satanic Voodoo religion, John Paul II is someone who’d know all about participating in idolatrous worship!
We have posted a picture of the Pachamama goddess to the right. As you will notice, we could only give you a censored version, as the original is too indecent to be displayed. Hey, why would you adore the Most Holy Trinity — Father, Son, and Holy Ghost — who created, redeemed, and sanctified you, when you could be worshipping this thing instead, right?
Folks, the problem is ultimately not this or that “cardinal”, this or that “Pope”, “bishop” or other cleric — the problem is Vatican II, the false religion of man prepared by John XXIII and officially established by Paul VI. It has nothing to do with Roman Catholicism, and this fact alone proves beyond all doubt that the Vatican II Sect is not the Roman Catholic Church of Pope Pius XII and his predecessors.
We will end with a very pertinent, not-so-ecumenical passage from Holy Scripture in which the prophet Elias challenges the pagans to prove their false deity, while he, instead, will prove the reality of the True God. It didn’t end well for the pagans:
And Elias coming to all the people, said: How long do you halt between two sides? if the Lord be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people did not answer him a word. And Elias said again to the people: I only remain a prophet of the Lord: but the prophets of Baal are four hundred and fifty men. Let two bullocks be given us, and let them choose one bullock for themselves, and cut it in pieces and lay it upon wood, but put no fire under: and I will dress the other bullock, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under it. Call ye on the names of your gods, and I will call on the name of my Lord: and the God that shall answer by fire, let him be God. And all the people answering said: A very good proposal. Then Elias said to the prophets of Baal: Choose you one bullock and dress it first, because you are many: and call on the names of your gods, but put no fire under.
And they took the bullock which he gave them, and dressed it: and they called on the name of Baal from morning even till noon, saying: O Baal, hear us. But there was no voice, nor any that answered: and they leaped over the altar that they had made. And when it was now noon, Elias jested at them, saying: Cry with a louder voice: for he is a God, and perhaps he is talking, or is in an inn, or on a journey, or perhaps he is asleep, and must be awaked. So they cried with a loud voice, and cut themselves after their manner with knives and lancets, till they were all covered with blood. And after midday was past, and while they were prophesying, the time was come of offering sacrifice, and there was no voice heard, nor did any one answer, nor regard them as they prayed: Elias said to all the people: Come ye unto me. And the people coming near unto him, he repaired the altar of the Lord, that was broken down:
And he took twelve stones according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, to whom the word of the Lord came, saying: Israel shall be thy name. And he built with the stones an altar to the name of the Lord: and he made a trench for water, of the breadth of two furrows round about the altar. And he laid the wood in order, and cut the bullock in pieces, and laid it upon the wood. And he said: Fill four buckets with water, and pour it upon the burnt offering, and upon the wood. And again he said: Do the same the second time. And when they had done it the second time, he said: Do the same also the third time. And they did so the third time. And the water run round about the altar, and the trench was filled with water.
And when it was now time to offer the holocaust, Elias the prophet came near and said: O Lord God of Abraham, and Isaac, and Israel, shew this day that thou art the God of Israel, and I thy servant, and that according to thy commandment I have done all these things. Hear me, O Lord, hear me: that this people may learn, that thou art the Lord God, and that thou hast turned their heart again. Then the fire of the Lord fell, and consumed the holocaust, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench. And when all the people saw this, they fell on their faces, and they said: The Lord he is God, the Lord he is God. And Elias said to them: Take the prophets of Baal, and let not one of them escape. And when they had taken them, Elias brought them down to the torrent Cison, and killed them there.
(3 Kings 18:21-40)
Clearly, Elias was pre-Vatican II.
Now let the Novus Ordo apostates worship their false gods and descend into hell if they insist; but as for us, let us serve the True God in faith, hope, and charity!
“But if it seem evil to you to serve the Lord, you have your choice: choose this day that which pleaseth you, whom you would rather serve, whether the gods which your fathers served in Mesopotamia, or the gods of the Amorrhites, in whose land you dwell: but as for me and my house we will serve the Lord” (Jos 24:15).
