Francis’ Message for Lent 2020: A Critical Review

It’s almost Lent and so the Vatican has published Francis’ Lenten message for this year. Once again it displays the usual Bergoglian approach: He excessively emphasizes the temporal over the eternal and places the supernatural at the service of the natural. Sound familiar?

Let’s have a critical look at some of what he says.

Jorge Bergoglio begins thus:

This year the Lord grants us, once again, a favourable time to prepare to celebrate with renewed hearts the great mystery of the death and resurrection of Jesus, the cornerstone of our personal and communal Christian life.

Behold the “now of God”, as Francis likes to say

Running out of slogans? After declaring the young to be the present and future of his “Church”, Francis says the same about the elderly.

Turning dogma on its head…

“The Mystery of the Lord made Bread for us” – Archlayman of Lima redefines Transubstantiation

“Pope” Francis isn’t the only South American Modernist who believes that in the Holy Eucharist Jesus Christ changes Himself into bread. The individual he appointed Archlayman of Lima, Mr. Carlos Castillo Mattasoglio, is another one.

On Jan. 7, 2020, the 69-year-old false Catholic bishop proclaimed: “It is essential for us to maintain a level of entering and contemplating the mystery of the Lord made bread for us, the mystery of the transubstantiation as we call it more technically, which means the real presence of the Lord“, according to a report by Catholic News Agency (underlining added).

Salza & Siscoe taken to the woodshed by one of their own…

“To Deceive the Elect”:

Rev. Paul Kramer destroys John Salza and Robert Siscoe

Every so often someone from the recognize-and-resist camp will complain that no sedevacantist has written a full book-length rebuttal of John Salza and Robert Siscoe’s 700-page whopper True or False Pope? Refuting Sedevacantism and Other Modern Errors (Winona, MN: STAS Editions, 2015). Frankly, there has been no need: Years ago already, after seeing the atrocious theology put forward in that book, one of their very own “priests” — the NovusOrdo-ordained Rev. Paul Kramer — announced that he was preparing a lengthy rebuttal.

Gospel of Man vs. Gospel of God…

From the Supernatural to the Natural: How Francis neutralizes the Gospel while appearing to preach it

As always: He’s got plenty to say…

On Jan. 30, 2020, the Argentinian apostate Jorge Bergoglio (aka “Pope Francis”) addressed the plenary assembly of the Vatican’s Congregation for the Destruction of the Faith, currently led by his fellow-Jesuit “Cardinal” Luis Ladaria Ferrer. A translation of the speech has been made available by Zenit:

The discourse provides a good concrete example of how the false pope continually naturalizes the Catholic Faith — that is, he continually refocuses the essence of Catholicism.

A rebuttal based on real Catholic teaching…

No Saint Athanasius: “Bishop” Schneider continues to spread Errors about the Papacy

The German branch of the Vatican II Sect has recently opened its so-called “Synodal Way” or “Synodal Path” (Synodaler Weg), which is essentially an elaborate and structured series of chat sessions in which the laity get to tell their pastors what changes they want to see in the “Catholic Church” going forward. And since we’re not talking about just any country but about the Land of Luther, long one of the hotbeds of Modernism, this will produce a veritable catalog of ultra-liberal desiderata: married clergy, women priests, homo “marriage” ceremonies in church, and the like.

The Sudden Disappearance of Georg Gänswein: Vatican confirms “Redistribution” of Duties

It must be a complete coincidence that after the inglorious kerfuffle over the Ratzinger/Sarah book on celibacy and the priesthood, the man caught in the middle of it all has suddenly vanished from the public eye.

We are talking about Archbishop Mr. Georg Gänswein, a 63-year-old German who plays an interesting and significant double role in the Vatican: On the one hand, he is the head of the “papal” household under Francis and therefore present at most of the “Pope’s” public appearances. At the same time, he is Benedict XVI’s personal secretary, a job he’s had since Joseph Ratzinger was elected in April of 2005.

One Year Later: The Apostate Abu Dhabi Declaration on Human Fraternity

It was a year ago, on Feb. 4, 2019, that “Pope” Francis dropped the spiritual “mother of all bombs” in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. He signed a common declaration with the Muslim Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, a certain Ahmad Al-Tayyib, entitled A Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together. In the midst of this document is found the following statement:

Freedom is a right of every person: each individual enjoys the freedom of belief, thought, expression and action.

Celibacy, shmelibacy!

Roberto de Mattei: Francis Opens Door to Married Priests in upcoming Exhortation on Amazon Synod

Peek-a-boo! Open or closed?!

The Novus Ordo Church historian Prof. Roberto de Mattei has published an article on his web site asserting that several “bishops” have leaked to him a pre-released portion of Francis’ upcoming post-synodal “Apostolic exhortation” that speaks of lifting the requirement of clerical celibacy.

But first, some background.

On Jan. 13, 2020, “Cardinal” Claudio Hummes, the general relator of the notorious Amazon Synod held in the Vatican in October of last year, sent a confidential letter to the world’s Novus Ordo bishops announcing that Francis’ exhortation would be published “by the end of this month or in early February.”

Francis tells U.S. Novus Ordo Bishops he supports public Benefits for Sodomite Couples

Kudos to the semi-trad Whispers of Restoration blog for catching this:

This past Monday, Jan. 27, 2020, a total of 33 Novus Ordo bishops from California, Nevada, and Hawaii visited “Pope” Francis (Jorge Bergoglio) in the Vatican for their obligatory quinquennial ad limina visit, during which they have to report to their boss on the state of their dioceses. During the meeting, which reportedly lasted well over two hours, they also got a chance to ask Bergoglio whatever questions they liked.

The so-called Catholic News Service reported the following about the visit:

The pastoral care of LGBT Catholics was another topic Pope Francis spoke about, Archbishop [Salvatore] Cordileone [of San Francisco] said.
