Move over, Last Supper…
Here comes Francis’ Foot-Washing Circus:
3 Heretics, 3 Muslims, 1 Hindu
It’s that time of the year again: During the most sacred time of the year, when Catholics around the globe are supposed to be focusing on the Last Supper of our Lord Jesus Christ, that is, the First Holy Mass, at which time Christ instituted the Most Holy Eucharist and the Sacred Priesthood, the Novus Ordo Sect is redirecting everyone’s thoughts to — who else? — Francis. The all-important question on everyone’s mind is: Whose feet will Francis wash this time?
Yes, Jorge Bergoglio has succeeded in getting both the secular world and everyone in his own sect to obsess about what has now become the annual foot-washing controversy.
The quarrel has long moved beyond whether women are allowed to participate in the Maundy Thursday ritual which is supposed to recall our Lord’s gesture of washing the feet of his 12 male Apostles, whom he ordained priests during the Last Supper. Now Francis is setting the example of washing the feet not simply of women but of infidels, heretics, and schismatics, who are, naturally, also refugees:
“Pope Francis will bow down and wash the feet of 12 refugees as a sign of service and attention to their condition,” [Archbishop Rino Fisichella] said.
The Auxilium Social Cooperative, which runs the center, told reporters that the 12 chosen for the foot-washing ritual include four women and eight men. An Italian Catholic woman who works at the center [for asylum seekers] and three women who belong to the Eritrean Orthodox Tewahedo Church were chosen, as were four Nigerian Catholic men, a Hindu man, and Muslim men from Syria, Pakistan and Mali.

The fact that even infidels, that is, people who are not even baptized, are now going to have their feet washed by the “Pope” himself during a ceremony that is supposed to recall the Last Supper, raises an interesting question in light of the decree Francis directed his so-called Congregation for Divine Worship to release in January 2016, in which those who receive the washing are referred to as “part of the people of God” (see Decree In Missa In Cena Domini). Can you put two and two together?
There is simply nothing that is holy that Francis can stand to leave untouched. His impious hands must wreck everything that still reminds him of the “old” Catholicism, of which barely anything is still left after decades of Vatican II in action. Here is a quick video excerpt of the actual event on March 24:
At this point we would like to draw your attention to our post from two-and-a-half years ago, entitled, “Francis, Voris, and the Washing of the Feet”, which includes this amusing video:
We can safely assume that Michael “Tough Guy” Voris will once again remain silent about Francis’ scandalous washing of the feet of female and non-Catholic refugees. This deliberate silence gives a whole new meaning to the term covering the news.
Francis is a demagogue of the most cunning sort. He conveniently fails to distinguish genuine refugees from mere “migrants” and thus exploits people’s good will and naiveté. His moralizing appeals to people to “welcome migrants” and “open hearts” consist of one-sided, dangerous half-truths that are not derived from Catholic principles but are simply an expression of pseudo-spiritual sentimentality. His bogus Naturalism is ultimately founded on a denial of original sin, that is, on a denial of the fact that our human nature is fallen. This is something he has in common with Benedict XVI.
By the way, there is nothing good or holy or worthy of compassion in being a migrant per se. The word “migrant” simply denotes someone who moves from one place to another. In and of itself, this is neither good nor bad; it is morally indifferent. Just because someone wants to move from one country to another doesn’t mean the desire is justified, prudent, or holy, and the destination country certainly has no moral obligation to grant entry to the migrant. On the contrary: A country which allows entry to anyone who asks, merely because he asks, is in grave danger of destroying itself. A nation without borders is not a nation, and a country’s first obligation is towards its own citizens, not towards everyone else.
This really isn’t complex philosophy, this is basic common sense. We all lock the doors of our homes. We are not “welcoming” in the sense that anyone can just come in, no matter who and no matter why or when. Does this make us cruel or heartless? No, it simply makes us prudent and sane. Mindlessly opening doors and borders has nothing — repeat: nothing — to do with the corporal work of mercy known as harboring the harborless (aka “sheltering the homeless”, which has since been upgraded to “welcoming the stranger” in the New Church). It is high time to tear the mask off Francis’ sentimental, pseudo-spiritual twaddle: Through his irresponsible words and actions, Bergoglio is doing his part to advance the globalist agenda of erasing all nation states so as to make straight the way for the ultimate goal of having one governing authority for the entire globe — the sine qua non scenario for the Antichrist to be able to rule the world, which we know he will do for three-and-a-half years (see Dan 12:7).
It was over 100 years ago that Pope Saint Pius X warned against the apostasy we are now witnessing:
When all this is considered there is good reason to fear lest this great perversity may be as it were a foretaste, and perhaps the beginning of those evils which are reserved for the last days; and that there may be already in the world the “Son of Perdition” of whom the Apostle speaks (II. Thess. ii., 3). Such, in truth, is the audacity and the wrath employed everywhere in persecuting religion, in combating the dogmas of the faith, in brazen effort to uproot and destroy all relations between man and the Divinity! While, on the other hand, and this according to the same apostle is the distinguishing mark of Antichrist, man has with infinite temerity put himself in the place of God, raising himself above all that is called God; in such wise that although he cannot utterly extinguish in himself all knowledge of God, he has contemned God’s majesty and, as it were, made of the universe a temple wherein he himself is to be adored. “He sitteth in the temple of God, showing himself as if he were God” (II. Thess. ii., 2).
(Pope St. Pius X, Encyclical E Supremi, n. 5)
[There is a] great movement of apostasy being organized in every country for the establishment of a One-World Church which shall have neither dogmas, nor hierarchy, neither discipline for the mind, nor curb for the passions, and which, under the pretext of freedom and human dignity, would bring back to the world (if such a Church could overcome) the reign of legalized cunning and force, and the oppression of the weak, and of all those who toil and suffer.
(Pope St. Pius X, Apostolic Letter Notre Charge Apostolique)
Man is constantly being put in the place of God and even above God — in the name of the “dignity of man”, we are constantly being told, not only by secular authorities, but, what is much more troubling, by supposed “Catholic” authorities, that we must not seek the conversion of anyone to Catholicism, that we must “respect” the most horrendous crimes against nature, that we must consider all religions to be more or less equal, and much more, ad nauseam. Wisely did Pope Leo XIII complain: “The world has heard enough of the so-called ‘rights of man.’ Let it hear something of the rights of God” (Encyclical Tametsi, n. 13).
Back in 1861, the brilliant Cardinal Henry Edward Manning explained how, according to the Church Fathers and the most competent Catholic theologians, it will comes to pass that the forces of the Antichrist, the Mystery of Iniquity, should gain the upper hand for a short time. His analysis and commentary are extremely insightful, and the accuracy with which some of these events have already come to pass is downright frightening:
The more time one spends studying the “old” Catholicism from before the Second Vatican Council, the easier it is to see what a great departure from the true Faith the Modernist Vatican II religion really is.
At a time when we hear endless blather about opening this and welcoming that, perhaps it’s good to recall a few Scripture passages that speak about closed doors and not welcoming people, to help keep things in perspective (all underlining added):
Bring not every man into thy house: for many are the snares of the deceitful. Receive a stranger in, and he shall overthrow thee with a whirlwind, and shall turn thee out of thy own.
But know this ye, that if the goodman of the house knew at what hour the thief would come, he would certainly watch, and would not suffer his house to be broken open.
And he said to them: Which of you shall have a friend, and shall go to him at midnight, and shall say to him: Friend, lend me three loaves, because a friend of mine is come off his journey to me, and I have not what to set before him. And he from within should answer, and say: Trouble me not, the door is now shut, and my children are with me in bed; I cannot rise and give thee.
Now whilst they went to buy, the bridegroom came: and they that were ready, went in with him to the marriage, and the door was shut. But at last come also the other virgins, saying: Lord, Lord, open to us. But he answering said: Amen I say to you, I know you not.
And a certain man said to him: Lord, are they few that are saved? But he said to them: strive to enter by the narrow gate; for many, I say to you, shall seek to enter, and shall not be able. But when the master of the house shall be gone in, and shall shut the door, you shall begin to stand without, and knock at the door, saying: Lord, open to us. And he answering, shall say to you: I know you not, whence you are. Then you shall begin to say: We have eaten and drunk in thy presence, and thou hast taught in our streets. And he shall say to you: I know you not, whence you are: depart from me, all ye workers of iniquity. There shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth, when you shall see Abraham and Isaac and Jacob, and all the prophets, in the kingdom of God, and you yourselves thrust out.
These are all biblical passages Bergoglio probably won’t be dwelling on a lot in the near future.
To summarize: It is business as usual. The Francis Show continues unabated, being simply the latest of the many acts the drama of the Vatican II Sect has to offer. It will not change until people finally man up and recognize that the whole thing is a farce, the entire religion is but a sad mockery of the Roman Catholic religion founded by our Lord Jesus Christ and has nothing to do with it; its head is not a true Pope but merely a third-class charlatan.
All the “resistance” in the world will not change this: It doesn’t matter how many more Skype chats Michael Matt and Chris Ferrara will have complaining about how bad things are. It won’t matter how many more luxury cruises or Vortexepisodes Michael Voris can put together. It doesn’t matter how many interviews will be given by “Cardinal” Burke or “Bishop” Schneider. It will make no difference how many more blogs will pop up or how many more public conferences the “resistance” will have. Neither will it matter what book “Cardinal” Sarah publishes next. In fact, all this is what has kept the farce alive for so long because it keeps giving people the hope that if we just hold out long enough and “fight from within”, it will change. No, it won’t, because this “resistance” is flawed at the root, in its very principles: It assumes that the Holy See can abandon the true Faith, and when it does, it is incumbent upon the faithful to convert it back to Catholicism. Nonsense! Heresy!
Only a widespread public recognition of sede vacante can even begin to ever put an end to it. Start here.
