Sodom & Gomorrah in Vienna Cathedral
“Cardinal” Schönborn celebrates Homosexual Prayer Service with blasphemous Transvestite
Words fail at the latest abomination perpetrated inside St. Stephen’s Cathedral in Vienna, Austria.
On Dec. 1, 2017, “Cardinal” Christoph Schönborn presided over an interconfessional prayer service entitled Mozart Requiem in his cathedral church for “World AIDS Day”. The event was co-hosted by a certain Gery Keszler, organizer of the annual Life Ball fundraising gala in the Austrian capital to support people infected with HIV (AIDS). In reality, of course, it is a massive LGBT/”gay pride” promo celebrating Sodom and Gomorrah.
The semi-trad news site Gloria TV posted the following report on the infernal spectacle in St. Stephen’s this past Friday:
On December 1, Cardinal Christoph Schonborn (72) celebrated “World AIDS Day” with a special service in Vienna Cathedral. The event was co-hosted by the notorious homosexual Gerry [sic] Keszler. He is the organizer of Vienna’s “Life Ball”, one of the biggest homo events in Europe. Keszler and Schonborn regularly get together for private dinners.
Schonborn received Keszler at the cathedral entrance. In his opening remarks, he again welcomed Keszler “and all who are responsible for making Life Ball happen.” In a prayer for people who have died of AIDS, Schonborn claimed that “all” will one day be allowed to “find their home” in God. The dead, he said, are “not lost forever.”
In the bidding prayers, the transvestite Thomas Neuwirth, who calls himself “Conchita Wurst”, lamented an alleged “persecution of those who live their identity in a way that is different from that of the majority.” Afterwards, he invited the people to come up, put a grain of incense into a bowl [!], and offer a personal petition.
In his concluding remarks inside the cathedral, Keszler said that it is not important whom we love or what we believe in. Schonborn thanked Keszler for his comments.

The sacrilegious performance can be watched here:
Incidentally, the AIDS pseudo-liturgy offered in the Viennese cathedral on Dec. 1 included a reading from the book of the Apocalypse. This is the pericope that was read:
And I saw a new heaven and a new earth. For the first heaven and the first earth was gone, and the sea is now no more. And I John saw the holy city, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a great voice from the throne, saying: Behold the tabernacle of God with men, and he will dwell with them. And they shall be his people; and God himself with them shall be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes: and death shall be no more, nor mourning, nor crying, nor sorrow shall be any more, for the former things are passed away. And he that sat on the throne, said: Behold, I make all things new.
Not surprisingly, the reading stopped there and did not continue, although what follows would have been more appropriate for the occasion:
And he said to me: Write, for these words are most faithful and true. And he said to me: It is done. I am Alpha and Omega; the beginning and the end. To him that thirsteth, I will give of the fountain of the water of life, freely. He that shall overcome shall possess these things, and I will be his God; and he shall be my son. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, they shall have their portion in the pool burning with fire and brimstone, which is the second death…. There shall not enter into [the heavenly Jerusalem] any thing defiled, or that worketh abomination or maketh a lie, but they that are written in the book of life of the Lamb.
Another fitting scriptural passage that didn’t make it into the “prayer service” is this one:
Know you not that the unjust shall not possess the kingdom of God? Do not err: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor the effeminate, nor liers with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor railers, nor extortioners, shall possess the kingdom of God.
(1 Cor 6:9-10)
Oh well, this is par for the course.
Ironically, the perverted event began with a beautiful rendition of Mozart’s Dies Irae (“Day of Wrath”), which is used in the traditional Roman Requiem Mass as a sequence. It may be doubted, however, that anyone provided a vernacular translation of the Latin lyrics:
Day of wrath and doom impending,
David’s word with Sibyl’s blending,
Heaven and earth in ashes ending.
O what fear man’s bosom rendeth,
When from heaven the Judge descendeth,
On whose sentence all dependeth.
Wondrous sound the trumpet flingeth,
Through earth’s sepulchers it ringeth,
All before the throne it bringeth.
Death is struck, and nature quaking,
All creation is awaking,
To its Judge an answer making.
Lo, the book exactly worded,
Wherein all hath been recorded,
Thence shall judgment be awarded.
When the Judge His seat attaineth,
And each hidden deed arraigneth,
Nothing unavenged remaineth.
What shall I, frail man, be pleading?
Who for me be interceding
When the just are mercy needing?
King of majesty tremendous,
Who dost free salvation send us,
Fount of pity, then befriend us.
Think, kind Jesus, my salvation
Caused Thy wondrous Incarnation,
Leave me not to reprobation.
Faint and weary Thou hast sought me,
On the Cross of suffering bought me,
Shall such grace be vainly brought me?
Righteous Judge, for sin’s pollution
Grant Thy gift of absolution,
Ere that day of retribution.
Guilty now I pour my moaning,
All my shame with anguish owning,
Spare, O God, Thy suppliant groaning.
Through the sinful woman shriven,
Through the dying thief forgiven,
Thou to me a hope hast given.
Worthless are my prayers and sighing,
Yet, good Lord, in grace complying,
Rescue me from fires undying.
With Thy sheep a place provide me,
From the goats afar divide me,
To Thy right hand do Thou guide me.
When the wicked are confounded,
Doomed to flames of woe unbounded,
Call me with Thy Saints surrounded.
Low I kneel with heart’s submission,
See, like ashes, my contrition,
Help me in my last condition.
Ah! That day of tears and mourning,
From the dust of earth returning,
Man for judgment must prepare him,
Spare, O God, in mercy spare him.
Lord, all-pitying, Jesus blest,
Grant them Thine eternal rest. Amen.
“Cardinal” Schonborn, of course, is proficient in Latin and knows the content of the Dies Irae very well. In fact, he even made reference to it in his homily, although, of course, not the way he should have: Instead of preaching the necessity of repentance and warning the attendees against mortal sin, especially sins against the Sixth and Ninth Commandments, he offered the usual Novus Ordo platitudes about forgiveness, solace, and the rest.
In fact, “His Eminence” asserted several times that Christ came to save, not to judge or condemn. Although this is true in the sense that Christ seeks our salvation, not our condemnation (cf. Jn 12:47; 1 Tim 2:4), it is not true in the sense that Christ will not condemn but only save (cf. Mt 25:46; 1 Cor 6:9-10; Jas 2:24). Just guess which sense Schonborn gave to the holy words of our Lord! He spoke them in the context of a prayer service which countless unrepentant sodomites attended in order to mourn the loss of their partners in crime, and he entirely neglected to mention that Christ will judge and condemn those who do not die in the state of sanctifying grace (a state which is entirely incompatible with the practice of unnatural vice). Worse yet, Schonborn said explicitly:
Und die Frage wird sein: War ich einer, der gerichtet hat, statt zu retten? Johannes vom Kreuz hat gesagt, am Abend unseres Lebens zählt nur die Liebe. Was erwarte ich mir von diesem Abend? So beeindruckend. Daß etwas in unser Land hinausgeht, vielleicht wirklich von hier aus. Wenn Gott nicht zu richten gekommen ist, sondern zu retten, was heißt das für uns? Nicht zu urteilen, nicht auszugrenzen, nicht andere ausrichten. Das, liebe Freunde, das kann unser Land verändern, nachhaltig. Vielleicht geht das auch von diesem Abend aus.
And the question [we will be asked at our judgment] will be: Was I someone who condemned [people] rather than saved [them]? John of the Cross said that at the end of our lives, only love counts. What do I expect of this evening? [It’s] so impressive. [I expect] that something will go out into our nation, perhaps truly [starting] from here. If God did not come to condemn but to save, what does this mean for us? Not to judge, not to exclude, not to bring [people] into line. This, dear people, can change our nation, in the long run. Perhaps this is what will come out of this evening.
(Source; 24:57-26:15 min mark; our translation.)
It is utterly despicable! Schonborn quotes Christ but manipulates the meaning of His words! Our Lord’s words are, in themselves, full of spirit and life (see Jn 6:64), but Schonborn has diabolically turned them into words of death and damnation because he has used them to confirm sinners in their sins, pretending that since Christ came to save and not to condemn, they will not be condemned. A more diabolical message can hardly be imagined.
For the perverted ceremony at St. Stephen’s Cathedral, sundry homo memorial banners were hung inside the cathedral (i.e. sodomites mourning their deceased partners), while others were spread out on the floor (not visible).
After Schonborn’s hellish sermon, the nose-ring-wearing pretend-woman Thomas Neuwirth stepped up to the microphone. Having placed a grain of incense onto a burning coal, he uttered the following prayer (notice that he does not address it to anyone or anything — he just starts talking):
Gib uns einen wachen Blick, nicht nur hier, sondern auch an allen anderen Orten. Laß uns die Welt und ihre Menschen wirklich wahrnehmen, damit die Verfolgung derer, die ihre Identität anders leben als die meisten, aufhört. Hilf uns, jede Ausgrenzung und Diskriminierung zu durchbrechen. Laß uns hinsehen und achtsam sein. Laß uns immer wieder Schritte machen auf die zu, die anders sind, als wir selbst.
Wir bitten dich, erhöre uns.
Give us a keen sense of perception, not only here but also in any other place. Make us truly aware of the world and its people so that the persecution of those who live their identity in a way that is different from that of the majority, will cease. Help us to break through every kind of exclusion and discrimination. Make us pay close attention and be watchful. Make us keep taking steps towards those who are different from ourselves.
We beg thee, hear us.
(Source; 27:55-28:26 min mark; our translation.)
Who or what the grain of incense was offered to, as well as the prayer, won’t require much conjecture.
For those who need a reminder as to who Thomas Neuwirth is, and who admires him, here is a shocking refresher:
Neuwirth’s pseudonym, “Conchita Wurst”, is no accident, and it is filled with meaning: “Conchita” is a diminutive of the Spanish first name Concepción, which refers to the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary (similarly, Spanish given names also include Lourdes and Guadalupe). Thus we can see that this transvestite pervert is directly trying to attack the Mother of God, Mary Most Holy, and this is not surprising, because the wickedness of this world is in manifest contradiction to the holy laws of Almighty God and the order He established. But the last name, “Wurst”, is likewise significant. Wurst, though it is the German word for “sausage,” is used by German speakers to indicate indifference: If something is “Wurst” to you, it means you are indifferent concerning it; it doesn’t matter to you (source).
Thus the name “Conchita Wurst” is specifically intended to offend the Blessed Virgin Mary and thereby Almighty God and the Catholic Church, and it tells the world that we should be indifferent as to whether someone is male or female, a man or a woman, whether he/she dresses as or is attracted to the one or the other. The created order is to be repuidated entirely, and now this rejection is to encompass not only the supernatural (“religious”) sphere any longer, as had hitherto been the case, but now even the natural as well: There is to be no more distinction between even so much as male and female, which is a direct repudiation of Genesis 1:27.
As for Mr. Schonborn, the Austrian pretend-cardinal and pretend-Catholic, he is a former student of Joseph Ratzinger (“Pope” Benedict XVI), is considered a “conservative” (!) in the Vatican II Church, and is a theological giant — he was the primary editor of the 1992 so-called Catechism of the Catholic Church, which “Pope” John Paul II promulgated with his (non-existent) “apostolic authority” (source) and to which Ratzinger gave his “imprimatur”.
This is the same Schonborn, by the way, who overturned a pastor’s decision barring an openly-practicing sodomite from sitting on the parish council, and who has encouraged and participated in the wildest liturgical chaos imaginable (yes, including flame throwers, pornography, and stage diving — we are NOT kidding!). This is also the same Schonborn who allows his cathedral rector to give “blessings” to homosexual “couples” every year on St. Valentine’s Day, and who allowed an open atheist, Communist, sexual deviant, and blasphemer to exhibit his “artwork” that displayed the Last Supper as a homosexual orgy, right there in the cathedral’s museum. To top it off, Schonborn later granted, through his cathedral rector, a “Catholic” (i.e. Novus Ordo) burial to the Communist blasphemer, complete with a red casket and a pornographic sculpture for a tombstone (see video here). Schonborn is also on record lauding as “exemplary human behavior” sodomite couples who “faithfully care” for one another.
Let’s face it: “Cardinal” Schonborn is satanic, and this “homo liturgy” he just conducted in the cathedral of Vienna is simply the latest offense in an ever-growing heap of crimes against the Most Holy Trinity, the saints, and the souls our Blessed Lord came to save.
