Pachamama’s got competition…
Time for Diwali: Vatican promotes Idolatry in Message to Hindus

Enough digital ink has been spilled on the Pachamama worship in and around the Vatican — it’s time we looked at what other idolatries the inglorious pack of Roman apostates likes to promote. Such as Hinduism, for example.
Frequent visitors to this blog will remember the following story we published this past summer:
Now the Vatican has doubled down. In its newly-released message to Hindus for the feast of Diwali (aka Deepavali), which is celebrated from Oct. 27-31 this year, the Modernists in Rome express their best wishes for a happy and fruitful celebration:
Dear Hindu Friends,
The Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue sends you cordial greetings and sincere good wishes as you celebrate Deepavali on 27 October this year. May this festival of lights illumine your hearts and homes and bring to your families and communities joy and happiness, peace and prosperity. At the same time, may it strengthen your spirit of fraternity with one another.
Alongside the experience of unprecedented advancement in many fields, we live at a time when, on the one hand, efforts are being made towards interreligious and intercultural dialogue, cooperation and fraternal solidarity. On the other hand, there is apathy, indifference and even hatred among some religious people towards others. This is often caused by a failure to recognize the ‘other’ as a brother or sister. Such an attitude can arise from misguided, ungenerous or unsympathetic sentiments, which upset and unsettle the very fabric of harmonious coexistence in society. It is with concern about this situation that we deem it fitting and beneficial to share with you some thoughts on the need for every individual, particularly Christians and Hindus, to be builders of fraternity and peaceful coexistence wherever they are.
Religion fundamentally inspires us “to see in the other a brother or sister to be supported and loved” (Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together, co-signed by Pope Francis and Sheikh Ahmed el-Tayeb, the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar in Abu Dhabi on 4 February 2019). It teaches us, moreover, to respect the inviolable dignity and the inalienable rights of others without any unwarranted bias towards their creed or culture. Only when adherents of religions demand of themselves a life consistent with their religious ethic will they be seen to fulfill their role as builders of peace and as witnesses to our shared humanity. For this reason, religions are to sustain the efforts their adherents make in leading an authentic life so as to “bring forth the fruits of peace and brotherhood, for it is in the nature of religion to foster… an increasingly fraternal relationship among people” (Pope John Paul II, Message for the World Day of Peace, 1992). As such, living in a spirit of fraternity and fellowship through constant dialogue should be a natural corollary of being a religious person, Hindu or Christian.
Though negative news dominates the headlines, this should not dampen our resolve to sow seeds of fraternity, for there is a hidden sea of goodness that is growing and leads us to hope in the possibility of building, together with the followers of other religions and all men and women of goodwill, a world of solidarity and peace. The conviction that building a world of fraternity is possible is reason enough for us to engage all the more in efforts towards building the edifice of fraternity and peaceful coexistence, keeping “the good of everyone at heart” (Pope Francis, Message for the Opening of the Annual Interreligious Prayer Meeting for Peace, “Bridges of Peace”, Bologna, 14 October 2018).
It is a happy coincidence that the beginning of this month marked the 150th anniversary of the birth of Mahatma Gandhi, “an outstanding and courageous witness to truth, love and nonviolence” (Pope John Paul II, Prayer for Peace at the Conclusion of the Visit to Raj Ghat, Delhi, 1 February 1986) and a valiant protagonist of human fraternity and peaceful coexistence. We would do well to draw inspiration from his example in living peaceful coexistence.
As believers grounded in our own religious convictions and with shared concern for the welfare of the human family, may we join hands with those of different religious traditions and all people of goodwill, and strive to do all we can – with a sense of shared responsibility – to build a more fraternal and peaceful society!
Wishing all of you a joyful celebration of Deepavali!
(“Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue Greets Hindu Feast of Diwali”, Zenit, Oct. 21, 2019; underlining added.)
There is much that could be said about this message, but we’ll focus only on one element: the expressed wish that the observance of this idolatrous feast would “illumine your hearts and homes and bring to your families and communities joy and happiness, peace and prosperity” and “strengthen your spirit of fraternity with one another.”
Notice that the Vatican is not saying anything about the conversion of the Hindus — which would be seeking their true happiness — nor are they merely wishing them well in some vague way, or wishing good things to them without reference to their idolatry. Rather, the Novus Ordo authorities are wishing that Hindus would receive the benefits enumerated precisely as the fruit of their observance of this pagan feast! It is precisely through this “festival of lights” that these blessings are to be received. That is the outrage; that is the apostasy!
That “Pope” Francis himself agrees wholeheartedly with that approach goes without saying, of course.
This year’s Vatican message to Hindus is entitled “Believers: Builders of Fraternity and Peaceful Coexistence”. To refer to Hindus as “believers” is apostasy already, since Hindus are unbelievers (infidels), that is, they do not have Faith — the virtue of Faith being the firm adherence of the mind, aided by grace, to what God has revealed because He, who cannot lie or be mistaken, has revealed it. Hindus have fallen for the lies of the devil and are therefore un-believers.
Wikipedia explains what Hindu gods are worshipped on Diwali: On the eve of the feast, “families offer prayers (puja) to Lakshmi and Ganesha, and lay offerings of puffed rice, candy toys, rice cakes and batashas (hollow sugar cakes)”. Ganesha is the Hindu god of beginnings, science, and wisdom; and Lakshmi is the goddess of wealth, fortune, and prosperity, according to their respective Wikipedia entries.
According to the Novus Ordo news org Zenit, Diwali is “based on ancient mythology, [and] it represents the victory of truth over lies, of light over darkness, of life over death, and of good over evil. The actual celebration lasts three days, marking the beginning of a new year, family reconciliation, especially between brothers and sisters, and worship of God [sic].”
Worship of God! No! The idols Ganesh and Lakshmi are not God, they are demons! “For all the gods of the Gentiles are devils…” (Ps 95:5). This is how low the Vatican II Sect has fallen! If there is one religion in the world that can be said to be truly and properly engaging in polytheistic idolatry, it’s Hinduism.
Polytheism is the belief that there are many gods, and idolatry, we recall, is a sin against the pre-Vatican II First Commandment: “I am the Lord thy God, who brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt not have strange gods before me. Thou shalt not make to thyself a graven thing, nor the likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or in the earth beneath, nor of those things that are in the waters under the earth. Thou shalt not adore them, nor serve them: I am the Lord thy God, mighty, jealous, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me” (Ex 20:2-5).
Unlike what “Pope” Francis would have the world believe, commandments are not mere suggestions. They are commandments, and if we break them without repenting of our sins before we die, we will be damned: “Not every one that saith to me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven: but he that doth the will of my Father who is in heaven, he shall enter into the kingdom of heaven” (Mt 7:21; cf. Jn 14:15,21,24). This concept is not hard to grasp.
Ladies and gentlemen, they are clearly moving towards an “all religions worship the same God” doctrine. This idea, of course, is a necessary prelude to having peace between religions, which will presumably be the “peaceful” message of the Antichrist when he appears. Peace in the world cannot be had without peace between religions, said none other than hell’s apostle, Hans Kung. This peace will be a false peace, of course, because it will not be the peace only Christ can give — the kind that is “not as the world giveth” (Jn 14:27). It will be a “peace” based on lies, blasphemy, and apostasy. It will be premised on the outrageous lie that Christ is equal to the devil, that the Creator is equal to the creature, that good is equal to evil, that truth is falsehood, that wrong is equal to right (cf. 2 Cor 6:14-17).
The end result will be a one-world religion based on “unity in diversity”, where each religion retains certain outer trappings (“legitimate traditions”) but all share the same Masonic, Antichrist creed: peace, harmony, solidarity, human dignity, diversity, fraternity, dialogue, and helping the needy. Frankly, we’re almost there already, especially since Francis signed the Abu Dhabi declaration this past February, which states that God wills the diversity of religions just as He wills male and female. The premises are there — now someone just needs to draw the conclusion.
None of this wickedness would have been possible without Vatican II, the Second Vatican Council. Ever since that abominable assembly, the “Catholic Church” has been engaging in so-called “interreligious dialogue with non-Christian religions.” This always involves the Roman Modernists sending greetings to their dialogue partners, congratulating them for whatever feasts they happen to be celebrating; it also includes occasional visits to the houses of idolatrous or false worship, and sometimes it even includes celebrating the anti-Catholic feasts on Vatican property and joining in the festivities.
Long-time readers of this blog may recall that in January of 2014, Benedict XVI’s and Francis’ interreligious frontman “Cardinal” Jean-Louis Tauran happily visited a Hindu temple in London, where he paid homage to its false deities. On July 5, 2018, Tauran was summoned before the Judgment Seat of God to render an account of his works, and he received his just reward.
The current president of the so-called Pontifical Council for the Promotion of Interreligious Dialogue is 67-year-old “Cardinal” Miguel Ayuso Guixot. The fact that the man is a “missionary” shows how the concept of mission has been utterly subverted in the Vatican II religion. And no wonder.
The wicked Vatican II robber council taught that “in Hinduism, men contemplate the divine mystery and express it through an inexhaustible abundance of myths and through searching philosophical inquiry” (Decree Nostra Aetate, n. 2). It outrageously proclaimed, furthermore, that the “Catholic Church rejects nothing that is true and holy in [other] religions. She regards with sincere reverence those ways of conduct and of life, those precepts and teachings which, though differing in many aspects from the ones she holds and sets forth, nonetheless often reflect a ray of that Truth which enlightens all men” (ibid.).
How stark is the contrast of this to the truly missionary, true Catholic position, expressed in the beautiful Act of Consecration of the Human Race to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, composed by Pope Pius XI, in which Catholics pray to Jesus Christ: “Be Thou King of all those who are still involved in the darkness of idolatry or of Islamism, and refuse not to draw them into the light and kingdom of God” (underlining added).
That is a truly Catholic prayer: It is not afraid to call idolatry by its name and to condemn it as spiritual darkness, for that it truly is; at the same time, it seeks not the destruction but the conversion and eternal happiness of those who are unhappily caught up in the service of idols. It thus reflects the Church’s divine mission to convert the nations to Jesus Christ and His Mystical Body, the Church (see Mk 16:15-16; 1 Cor 12:27; cf. 1 Tim 2:4).
To sum up: The true Catholic Church rejects Hinduism as being “the darkness of idolatry”, whereas the Vatican II Sect rejoices in Hinduism as representing “the victory … of light over darkness.” Yet our Blessed Lord said: “I am come a light into the world; that whosoever believeth in me, may not remain in darkness” (Jn 14:56). Indeed, Jesus Christ alone is “the light [that] shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it” (Jn 1:5). He is “the true light, which enlighteneth every man that cometh into this world” (Jn 1:9).
He who does not have Christ, necessarily has darkness. That goes for Hindus as much as it goes for the apostates in Vatican City.
