Pachamama returns to the Vatican…
Give to Gaia what is Gaia’s?
Vatican issues ‘Mother Earth’ Coin
The Vatican’s new coin, compared with a common image of Gaia or Pachamama
When in November of 2014, the head of the Vatican’s so-called Pontifical Council for Culture, “Cardinal” Gianfranco Ravasi, participated in a public worship ceremony of the Pagan earth goddess Gaia, also called Pachamama, no one batted an eye. But when on July 19, 2015, a televised “Catholic Mass” of the Canadian Archdiocese of Toronto concluded with a hymn to “beautiful Gaia”, written by a Unitarian Universalist feminist, it did create some outrage. At the same time, Antipope Francis had just released his eco-encyclical Laudato Si’ only a few weeks before, and the trajectory he was putting his Modernist sect on was clear: “Mother Earth” was to become part of the Christian consciousness, and to that end he shrewdly but diabolically hijacked St. Francis of Assisi (see Laudato Si’, nn. 1, 92). Whereas conversion to Catholicism was still optional, conversion to an “integral ecology” was now imperative.
Since then, Francis has continually called people to be attentive to the “cry” of Mother Earth, and he has even declared that “[t]he wounds inflicted on our mother earth are wounds that also bleed in us…”. Indeed, he has missed no opportunity to tell people that whatever natural ills are currently afflicting mankind, they are not the just wrath of God being poured out on us to bring us back to our senses; no, they are Mother Nature’s revenge — Pachamama is throwing a temper tantrum!
No wonder, then, that the Vatican announced the release of the book Our Mother Earth in 2019, the year of the notorious Amazon Synod. Exciting stuff! Consisting of 30 reflections by Francis on Laudato Si’, the book must have been a hot seller. Pachamama also made an appearance at the Vatican Christmas Concert that year, at which the audience was instructed to channel their inner Gaia, which of course they all happily complied with.
On the eve of the synod’s opening, Francis presided over a scandalous ceremony in the Vatican Gardens which culminated in a dance around an immodest wooden figurine of Pachamama, before which the participants prostrated themselves. Although Francis and his gang of Modernist clergy looked on from afar and were not themselves part of the idolatrous worship, it was nevertheless part of the ceremony, and Francis did not object. In fact, when the Pachamama statue was brought to him afterwards, he blessed it. Remember?
So now we know why Francis has said that he does not go to the doctor but “to the witch”.
While some dyed-in-the-wool Francis defenders were bending over backwards to spin Pachamama into the Blessed Virgin Mary under the supposed title of “Our Lady of the Amazon”, a Vatican spokesman shot that down, and none other than Francis himself later publicly referred to the statue as “Pachamama”.
As if all this weren’t bad enough, Francis found a way to kick things up a notch. As the synod began, there was a procession carrying Pachamama from St. Peter’s Basilica to the Synod Hall. But the Jesuit antipope kept the “best” for last: The grand finale consisted of Francis receiving a soil offering to Gaia, which he put on the high altar of St. Peter’s for the synod’s closing “Mass”!
Keeping all of this in mind, it will not come as a surprise to hear that the Vatican has now issued 10 € coins depicting Mother Earth. Dr. Jules Gomes has written a very good report on it at Church Militant:
The coin, which is displayed in the title image of this post, was issued by the Vatican’s Philatelic and Numismatic Office. It was designed by Luigi Oldani, apparently for World Earth Day, as Dr. Gomes notes. He writes further:
While the Numismatic Chronicle interpreted the icon as Madre Terra (Mother Earth), the Vatican portrayed it as “a mother carrying the Earth, to which we owe care and love as if she were a daughter.”
The coin, issued Monday, symbolizes the earth’s fertility “with long ears of corn” entwined with the mother’s plaited hair and evokes “a cross-reference between past and future that becomes timeless, therefore eternal,” the publication said.
The Vatican commended the coin as representing, under the pontificate of Pope Francis, “a commitment to take care of the planet,” the publication said.
(Jules Gomes, “Vatican mints Mother Earth Coin”, Church Militant, Oct. 13, 2020)
It is unfortunate that the Unholy See could not find a better way to illustrate “taking care of the planet” than by the image of a Pagan fertility goddess minted onto its coins. Never mind that Gaia is one of those “dumb idols” denounced by St. Paul in 1 Corinthians 12:2 — Sacred Scripture is pre-Vatican II.
Or has Mother Earth now seriously been demoted to Daughter Earth? If so, one would have to conclude that the hidden message this time is that man is the real Creator of the world. Or woman, to be more precise.
Either way, at least we can be sure that the Vatican Modernists will be ready for the mark of the beast whenever it comes: “And that no man might buy or sell, but he that hath the character, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name” (Apoc 13:17).
By the way, did you know that Pope St. Peter wrote about how God would deal with any Pachamama coins minted by the Vatican at the end of the world? He said: “But the day of the Lord shall come as a thief, in which the heavens shall pass away with great violence, and the elements shall be melted with heat, and the earth and the works which are in it, shall be burnt up” (2 Pet 3:10).
Seems like it’s time.
