Remember when they had everybody convinced that the Amazon Synod was about priestly celibacy? I was warning people for a year before the Synod that it was a distraction. https://7thhorn.com/2020/02/12/priest-marriage-officially-more-important-than-the-1st-commandment-to-some-catholics.
The Synod was about idolatry, demonic syncretism, and staging a public display of a reality shattering violation of the First Commandment by the man pretending to be pope, in union with all the fat heretics who are pretending to be the Magisterium.
Priestly celibacy was a red herring, but everybody took the bait.
This happens constantly in the Church and in politics (remember “The Wall?”).
While they have everybody arguing over female deacons (or kids in cages), the real damage is either being done, or being hidden.
It’s happening again. They’re very good at it. Any guesses on what the current diversion is?
Everybody from Catholic Q-Vigano to Joe Six Pack on Twitter is up in arms in defense of the Mass, understandably so. Ever since Summorum Pontificum, we have been reintroduced to the beautiful and perfect Mass of the Ages. Conversions to true Catholicism have happened because of that tactical choice by Ratzinger. I’m one of them.
Consequently, my intent is absolutely not to diminish the beauty, perfection, and necessity of the Mass of Ages. Lex orandi, lex credendi is absolutely true – how we pray affects what we believe.
So, it is understandable that the antipope and antibishops limiting or taking away the Tridentine Mass, just when a new generation has discovered it, is making people barking mad. But … this was always the idea.
Think about it – everybody is focused on the Mass almost exclusively, instead of the fact that these tyrants pretending to be our Magisterium are not Catholic.
They do not believe what we believe.
They know that. Everybody knows it. But, everybody has been trained by Trad Inc. to fear saying it out loud.
Repeat after me: one must be Catholic to be Pope.
Please spare me the debate on the legal term of art “declare.” Argue with the Catholic Church, instead. I’ve addressed it here: https://7thhorn.com/2021/07/12/on-heretical-popes-and-schism
One can spend a few minutes researching and find clear, concise, and definitively damning quotes like this: “[t]he pope himself, if notoriously guilty of heresy, would cease to be pope because he would cease to be a member of the Church.” The Catholic Encyclopedia, “Heresy,” 1914, Vol. 7, p. 261.
It astonishes me that these distractions continue to be effective. It seems that people will argue about anything, so long as they can continue to avoid facing the undeniable fact that we are in the Great Apostasy of 2 Thess 2:3.
Why? Because to admit it causes one to seek the origins of the apostasy, and that is very, very obviously Vatican II (at least in the formal aspect of the apostasy).
Admitting that causes one to be faced with the very disturbing notion that God would allow us to wallow in the desolation that we created for an entire biblical generation.
That’s disturbing and surprising – but it shouldn’t be, because He’s done it before.
So, instead of lamenting heretics suppressing the form of the true Mass, it seems to me that folks should be focusing on the fact that the men who occupy our buildings are not Catholic. In addition, maybe folks should overcome their aversion to painful truths, and take a look at the changes in Episcopal Consecrations after Vatican II.
Has it ever occurred to you that your priest is a coward, a faggot, a heretic, and/or a pervert … because he may not be a priest? Because the poor man may not have been receiving the benefit of the salvific graces of sacraments every day of his life, because his hands were anointed by a guy who never was a bishop?
Take a look at the issue. It’s terribly disturbing. What good is a perfectly celebrated Mass, if it’s not being performed by a priest?
In the meantime, it’s time to accept that the men representing our faith are not Catholic. And, just like some people in Trad Inc., neither will you be for long, if you keep insisting that Bergolio is “pope.”
N.B.: take a look at AstheRain’s comment below. He’s spot on with regard to the “Non Servium” spirit that Satan is intentionally cultivating in the faith.
Either we owe these men our obedience, or we don’t. Make no mistake, if Pope Saint Pius X ordered a new Mass, as unlikely as that hypothetical is, I would absolutely obey. That is within his authority, so long as he is pope.
This is the very real problem of not vocalizing the fact that Bergoglio is an antipope. Because, if he’s not an antipope, we owe him our obedience on liturgical matters.
In other words, insisting that the man is pope while refusing to obey him is diabolical non servium. The only way out of that is to acknowledge that the man is one of many antipopes the Church has had to endure, and therefore has no authority over … anything.
