"If the faith is in imminent peril, prelates ought to be accused by their subjects, even in public." ------
St. Thomas Aquinas
"The greatest obstacle in the apostolate of the Church is the timidity or rather the cowardice of the faithful." ------
Pope St. Pius X
In the book of Ezechiel [17-21] we are instructed:
Son of man, I have made thee a watchman
to the house of Israel: and thou shalt hear the word out of my mouth,
and shalt tell it them from me. If, when I say to the wicked, Thou
shalt surely die: thou declare it not to him, nor speak to him, that he
may be converted from his wicked way, and live: the same wicked man
shall die in his iniquity, but I will require his blood at thy hand.
But if thou give warning to the wicked, and he be not converted from
his wickedness, and from his evil way: he indeed shall die in his
iniquity, but thou hast delivered thy soul. Moreover if the just man
shall turn away from his justice, and shall commit iniquity: I will lay
a stumbling block before him, he shall die, because thou hast not given
him warning: he shall die in his sin, and his justices which he hath
done, shall not be remembered: but I will require his blood at thy
But if thou
warn the just man, that the just may not sin, and he doth not sin:
living he shall live, because thou hast warned him, and thou hast
delivered thy soul.
One trembles to address the numerous comments out of the mouth of the
Pontiff Francis so scandalous they are falling faster and more
precipitously than languid leaves in the boreal autumn wind. Given the
state of affairs - at a crisis point - in the Church and among men at
large, and with the command of God Himself as provided by His Saints, I
rise to do my duty, as unworthy as I am, to rectify in some small way
the damage done to universal truth and the cause of the salvation of
I will not even attempt to cover all the off-the-cuff remarks brandished about in the media as if spoken ex cathedra
and thus infallible truth is said to be in flux and subject to change, a contradiction in terms and an absolute impossibility!
The concern of this column is sin.
Early in his pontificate the Bishop of Rome, as he prefers to be
called, was heard to say without any sorrow or regret that he had once
stolen a rosary from the hands of a corpse and that he hoped some grace
would "rub" off on him or words to that effect. As reported in the
press the avowal appeared almost a boast, as surely as it was damning
for it gave scandal within its very context. How could one merit grace
from a sinful act in of itself?!!
But I let this go, not out of cowardice, but to be as prudent as
possible, to wait and see if the Pontiff Francis had a change of heart
and took back the tone of disdain for the nature of sin.
Now he is on an unruly, unholy tear again, this time informing the
world that no less a Saint than St. Paul boasted of his sinfulness!!
Shocking beyond the words to tell! Either he has lost all sense of
propriety or is woefully ignorant. The Church has always given the
definition for St. Paul's use of "infirmities" not as sins but human
frailty, which may lead to sin, but never defined it as sins
themselves. To purposefully boast of sin is a sin against the Holy
Ghost! To boast of infirmity or weakness as a creature is to allow God
to worketh grace and bestow His bountiful mercy on such creatures who
are aware of their need of Him in all things and therein place all
their trust and hope. One as great as the Apostle and Martyr Paul could
never, would never boast of even the smallest venial sin, for sin is so
heinous that unrepented venial sin [mortal sin in this category
precludes the possibility of salvation] or insufficiently repented sins, including
venial sins, are atoned for in Purgatory. Just one such venial sin
Having given more than enough scandal with his
pernicious, facetious remark "Who is to judge?" - without qualifiers as
per Archbishop Raymond Burke of the Vatican Signatura, who said that we
are obligated to judge in the objective and gave a few examples. The
above Scripture quote mandates judging in the objective in order to
strive to not only save our own souls but those of our neighbor as well.
All this tomfoolery and shameless buffoonery is the result of the Holy
See's failure [refusal?], specifically the Roman Pontiffs', to heed Our
Lady of Fatima and consecrate RUSSIA to her Immaculate Heart. She
warned us that if the Consecration was not done as asked much
misfortune would befall the Pontiff, the Church and the world, which
receives any and all grace from God through the ministration of the
Holy Catholic Church. She said that the Consecration would finally be
done, but late .... after much misery for mankind.
What a chastisement to be made to witness such a pitiful state, to be
reduced to a laughing stock, in that truth and morals can be so little
regarded that the Vatican prelates and the Bishop of Rome, Francis,
have the temerity to hold a Synod where the Church's moral teaching on
marriage, infallible and irreformable by definition, are open to debate
at the very least. This is tempting the Spouse of Our Lady, the Holy
I squelch a scream that rises up from the very sinews of my heart and
the faculties of my soul! Is this a nightmare I thought, surely it must
be but that?
No. Oh dear Heaven!
, Peter, quo vadis?
I dare not follow lest I risk the loss of my soul .......
