artwork for the Synod on the Family

French language edition

 Italian language edition

 English language edition

The covers shown above are a cropping of a painting by Marc Chagall.  The painting is named Song Of Songs III and it is a depiction of King David and his lover Bathsheba.  We at Call Me Jorge... find it very revealing that for the cover they chose two people from the Bible having an affair which displeased God.  People often ask for signs from God, what more could you ask for than an explicit sign like this?

  1. This is a papacy we can assess semiologically - radically ecumenical & interconfessional; masonic; talmudic, liberation theological, functionalising religion in the widest context possible, circumnavigated exploiting the postmodernist media machine with a wide open mouth.

  2. Wow, my initial impression of this "art" is that the blended male-female figure appearing left of center is Chagal's interpretation of a Rebis, an occult symbolic figure representing the alchemical wedding of sacred masculine and sacred feminine characteristics. This 'alchemical wedding' is also frequently represented by the Seal of Solomon (aka Star of David) in Freemasonry.

    The reclining figure at the bottom also resembles a Rebis.

    I'd be very curious to see Maurice's take on this.

    Full disclosure-I am not and have never been a member of a Freemasonic Lodge however I have read some literature about occult symbology after reading about the Alta Vendita and Sedevacantist Thesis in order to better comprehend the current Crisis in the Church

    1. Great insight! It is fitting Francis is trying to alchemical transform the Church's definition of what a marriage is that the artwork would also depict it.

    2. Based on my limited knowledge of occult symbology one thing is clear -- The elite occultists such as Freemasons just love putting their symbology right in everyone's face. A good example is the Great Seal on the reverse of the U.S. one dollar bill, if one overlays the Masonic square and compass on the Seal it points to the letters in the motto (Annuit Coeptis Novus Ordo Seclorum) which spell "MASON" see the illustration below for exactly what I referenced...

      Jorge's (or maybe Maridiaga or some other apostate) choice of Chagal's Rebis figure as a focal point is likely not an accident. Jorge's fondness for Chagall combined with an overt in-your-face declaration.

      One thing which differs from the Rebis from 1617 at the Wikipedia link and the one in the Chagall is that the older Rebis is standing on the dragon which represents conquering one's base urges and passions. Mr. "Who am I to judge" is not advocating any type of self control from what I've observed. This is significant, as St. Augustine noted in City of God "...Thus, a good man, though a slave, is free; but a wicked man, though a king, is a slave. For he serves, not one man alone, but, what is worse, as many masters as he has vices.”


      Once again, thank you for all of your work.

  3. Hello CMJ,

    I would be very interested to get your comments on this article.

    "Christians in Solidarity with Jews for Jewish High Holy Days" -- September 18, 2014 by Fr. Thomas Rosica

    http://saltandlighttv.org/blog/general/christians-in-solidarity-with-jews-for-jewish-high-holy-days

    From the article:

    " As Christians, we remember over two thousand years that comprise the story of the Christian community, from its beginnings within the Jewish community in Jerusalem, through the dramatic evolution that occurred as the Church took root in gentile communities of other cultures, to its present situation as the largest faith community in the world. The early Church and Rabbinic Judaism both took shape about the same time, both rooted in Biblical Judaism. But very soon in the history of these sibling communities, negative stereotypes of Jews and Judaism dominated the Church’s relations with the Jewish community. That led to the demeaning of Jewish faith and the persecution of Jews, culminating in the role that the Church’s theology played in setting the scene for the Holocaust perpetrated by the Nazis during World War II. "

    Also notice the photo of bergoglio hosting a group of jewish leaders. In the background is the "Mary untier of knots" painting. Notice that bergoglio didn't seem to think it was necessary to cover it up for his jewish friends which again makes me suspect that it has masonic significance.

    Yours in Christ,
    Michael

    1. Michael,

      As always thanks for your contribution to the comments. When we have time we will look at the article. We have planned an entry on Mary Untier of Knots which should be up soon. We think it will be of interest to you. Bergoglio like a good modernist invents his version of Catholicism as he goes along. Enjoyed your post on "bergoglio's god of surprises."

  4. But CMJ, how can you say that King David´s affair displeased God? Don´t you know what the "elder brothers" of your “friend” Bergoglio are teaching?

    “It is a convention of biblical scholarship that scripture sometimes presents seemingly contradictory information that forces us to evaluate the misdeeds of extraordinary people in the context of their times and circumstances. To warn us against superficially interpreting David’s episode with Bathsheba, the Talmud records the oral tradition that, “Anyone who says that David sinned is in error.”1
    Even without the Talmud’s admonition, it is impossible to reconcile the simple reading of the text with Torah law. According to Jewish law, an adulteress is forbidden to marry a man with whom she committed adultery, even after divorce or the death of her husband.2 Any descendant from such a union would be a mamzer, i.e., illegitimate, and would thus be disqualified both from reigning as king and from marrying into the general community of permitted Jewish women. Because David remained married to Bathsheba after the incident without reprimand, and because their son, Solomon, was allowed to rule and perpetuate the messianic line, we have no choice but to conclude that David, whatever his sin may have been concerning Bathsheba, did not commit adultery.

  5. And:

    Was King David guilty of murder and adultery?
    by Rabbis Mendy Gutnick, Avrohom Wineberg
    [Ed. note: With any study there are two approaches: the easy way, and the academic way. The easy way is to take a quick glance, automatically factor in your personal life experiences and preconceived notions, and draw quick conclusions based on how you would relate to that situation. The academic way is to examine and reexamine the subject matter. To do that is it necessary to take yourself, and your own biases, out of the picture. You must view the subject matter through the life experiences of the subjects involved, and open your mind to new ideas.
    This is all the more true when it comes to understanding concepts in the Torah, a Divine book intentionally written enigmatically and euphemistically. Following is a deeper academic look into this Biblical personality and story. Pause, clear your mind, and take it from the top.]

    David
    Known as the "Melech Hamoshiach" (anointed king), David not only lead his generation in G-d's ways, but he also merited to be divinely inspired and compose the Psalms, a book which we recite in our prayers (and many other occasions), until this very day! Amongst the Jewish greats of all times he is listed in the "Big 7", a group that in many contexts is known as the pillars of Judaism. For example, the traditional "Mi Sheberach" prayer on behalf of ill people begins with the following words: "May He who blessed our fathers, Abraham Isaac and Jacob, Moses and Aaron, David and Solomon, bless the sick person..."

    If David desired this woman and was willing to go to any length to fulfill his "fantasy," why did he first send messengers to inquire regarding Bathsheba?
    Is it conceivable that we would invoke the name of a murderer and adulterer in an attempt to elicit divine mercy?! Is there a shortage of Jewish greats? The authors of this prayer were well aware of the Bible and all its stories, including the story of David and Bathsheba, yet they did not hesitate to include David in this prayer, where he shares such illustrious company!

    Holiness and impurity do not go hand-in-hand! Maimonides tells us that one can only become a prophet if he has the ability to completely overcome his temptations. Among the prophets listed1 is King David. It is, therefore difficult to assume that he simply succumbed to his temptations. Indeed, the righteous David had no worldly desires, as he testifies in the Psalms2 that "My heart [i.e. my passions and desires] has died within me."

    Bathsheba
    There is a dispute in the Talmud3 whether or not Bathsheba was technically a married woman at the time. The Talmud rules that she was not. The law was that before a man went out to war he was required to divorce his wife.

    This was a necessary precaution taken to protect the wife. In case the husband would die in battle and no one could testify to the fact, the wife would not be an "Agunah" (chained to her possibly deceased husband) and would be free to remarry. If, however, the husband did return from the battlefield safe and sound – the couple was free to remarry. Uriah, too, issued this divorce to his wife and thus, according to Jewish law,

    King David had relations with a divorced woman.
    Please note, that before King David summoned Bathsheba he "sent and inquired about the woman."

  6. Tradition in action had article re: using figures like this to "teach" about Christ:

    http://www.traditioninaction.org/HotTopics/c038_Catechsim.htm

    Similar to how "fundamentalist" worship has become nothing but waving one's arms and bowing to a (rock) band in a stadium hall. My guess is that God is leading us into a pit of being able to do nothing but "scroll" w/our fingers (I-phone, I-pad, etc. w/bitten apple logo) and when the lights go out we will be able to do nothing.at all but whoop and holler in our bikinis and speedos around a camp fire..

  7. The painting by Chagall is not of David and Bathsheba. That is Song of Songs IV. The image above for the Synod key art is Song of Songs III. The depiction is of Chagall and his wife Bella.
