“smells and bells”
Saint John Cantius in
Some of the priests at Saint John Cantius were invited to The Art Institute of Chicago for a viewing of Marc Chagall’s blasphemous painting, the “White Crucifixion”. They were so delighted to see Francis’ favorite painting that they posted photos of themselves viewing it on St. John Cantius’ social media accounts at facebook and at twitter. Surprised? We at Call Me Jorge... are not for Saint John Cantius church in Chicago and its associated programs are all about the “smells and bells” in the post-Summorum Pontificum 1962 Indult and the Novus Ordo Missae offered there daily as their official website explains. We call it Tridentine Judaism as they bestow upon Talmudic Judasim (this time with the Hasidism of Chagall’s blasphemous painting) an undeserved honor as being the eternal victims instead of being the transgressors that they are. Why would a Catholic pose with, much less promote blasphemy such as the “White Crucifixion”? Ignorance of Talmudic Judaism? Ignorance of the Catholic Faith? Or simply, love of “smells and bells”?

More on the White Crucifixion
Maurice Pinay's posts on the White Crucifixion
Some blame it on terrorism, others that Christmas day fell on a Sunday but we at Call Me Jorge... believe it is Francis fatigue. Since the reign of Francis has begun he has managed to alienate most of the Vatican bureaucracy and to burn out several reporters. The crowds have never really shown up for Francis as they did for Benedict XVI. His ‘Urbi et Obi’ had seen a marked decline until this year when attendance was flat even though the Jubilee Year of Mercy had just recently finished. According to Vatican reporter, Rocco Palmo, “Thanks to Jubilee, attendance at 2016 Pope events in Rome was 3.95mil – up from 3.2m in 2015, but still marked decline from 5.9m in 2014.” Could it be that people think the man is irrelevant? Looking at the social media and mainstream media that’s been crafted by Opus (ju)Dei’s Greg Burke it’s little wonder why he is thought of in this manner.

The crowd looks a bit sparse.
People are still trickling in.
Still a lot of empty space.
As full as St. Peter’s Square gets these days.
About as many in attendance as last year’s Urbi et Orbi.

In an excellent essay at TomNaegeleBlogs titled, Francis the Liberal (in five short parts), the blogger compares Francis to the term ‘liberal’ as defined by Fr. Félix Sardà y Salvany in his 1886 book Liberalism is a Sin. One particular quote from the book, Liberalism is a Sin, used in this essay stands out as prescient of Francis:
“From the Gospel he is careful to cite only those texts flavored with milk and honey. The terrible invectives of Our Lord against Pharisaism astonish and confound him; they seem to be an excess of language on the part of our Divine Saviour! He reserves these denunciatory texts to use against those provoking Ultramontanes who every day compromise, by their exaggerated and harsh language, the cause of a religion that he thinks should be all peace and love. Against them his Liberalism, ordinarily so sweet and gentle, grows bitter and violent. Against them his zeal flames up, his polemics grow sharp, and his charity becomes aggressive.”
After demonstrating that the humility of Francis is false, the author concludes with one question, ‘Can one be both a liberal and a Catholic?’ Click the links below and read to find out.

Listen to the United States Under-Secretary of the Treasury for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence, Adam J. Szubin, invoke Chabad’s Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson’s message of Hanukkah and don’t miss the shout out to President Ronald Reagan for naming it the “National Menorah”.
Ever wonder what the miracle of Hanukkah, the ‘light’ of the eight days of oil, represents?
Additionally, in the opinion of one scholarly skeptic, Hanukkah’s sub rosa significance, communicated esoterically through the image of the menorah, is as a testimony to “the supreme position which the Holy Judaic People occupy in God’s eyes. …The secret of Hanukkah was disclosed by Rabbi Levi Isaac ben Meir of Berdichev (known as ‘the Kedushat Levi’ after his eponymous treatise), an important eighteenth century halachic [legal] authority, who revealed the fact that lighting the Hanukkah menorah does not commemorate the victory of the Biblical Maccabees.
The arcane traditional doctrine of Chazal (i.e. the “sages” of the Talmud) concerning Hanukkah is that it commemorates God’s “delight in the Jewish people” themselves, and their vainglorious celebrations. The secret teaching of Hanukkah is that God supposedly provided a mythical eight days of oil not as a means of facilitating a victory, or of guaranteeing the successful completion of a sacred duty, but rather as a sign (halacha osah mitzvah), of His continuing adoration of the Judaic people, which all the rest of us are supposed to emulate, as we do indeed whenever a menorah is erected where a Nativity scene is banned.
How did Hanukkah originate?
The Chanukah 'miracle of the oil' has its origin in Talmud tractate Shabat 21b and is generally accepted as originating 600 years after the events recorded in Book of Maccabees. Numerous rabbinic scholars have determined that the fable was invented at a time when militant Judaism would be a liability (c.f. the Bar Kochba rebellion), and so the 'miracle of the oil' was contrived and emphasized over the militant theme in the Book of Maccabees to mollify fanatics and thereby avoid backlash. This is an example of Judaic dispensationalism at work. For our time, when fear of backlash is less, we can see that the militant theme of Chanukah is more heavily emphasized (c.f. George W. Bush's White House Chanukah party speeches, Chabad Chanukah literature).

A boat for the Moslem invaders & a rainbow flag for the infant Christ!
Archbishop Matteo Maria Zuppi a conservative Novus Ordo champion of Summorum Pontificum celebrated two Novus Ordo Messes on Christmas Day. One in the train station of Bologna and the other in its Cathedral. Here we have a Fraternity of Saint Peter (FSSP) friendly cardinal offering his mess in a train station for the forgotten, the peripheries as Francis would say, with a boat for the “refugees” and a rainbow flag under the infant Jesus symbolizing any and/or all of the following: the seven Noahide laws, peace, homosexuals & other degenerates. One never knows as Zuppi is a member of the Community of Sant'Egidio. Zuppi was appointed a bishop by the false conservative Benedict XVI and elevated to archbishop by the radical revolutionary Francis. The entire affair remind us at Call Me Jorge... of Don Paolo Tondelli, the curé of Novellara, Italy had two St. Josephs and no Blessed Virgin Mary at his church’s Nativity Scene back in 2013, inspired by Francis’ words, “Who am I to judge?”
One shudders to think of the garbage spouted off by Zuppi during his homily.

“It’s not at all obvious there is a war against Christmas, looks to me the whole world is Christmas...”
In that same year of A.D. 2009 Pharisee Dolan...
...went to the Jewish temple Congregation Emanu-El in New York City and lit the menorah on the 11th of December under the watchful eye of Rabbi Dr. David Posner for the Talmudic hoax, known as Hanukkah,
and had the world’s largest public menorah display in his diocese at 59th Street and Fifth Avenue created by Yaacov Agam and paid for by the Chabad-Lubavitchers!
...a Christmas without Christ
under the watchful eye of Francis’ photo
The title of the video below reads: the President's visit during Christmas to a church of the Franciscan Catholic community in Ramla, Israel. The text description reads: Children dressed in their finery and in Santa Claus costumes, "sang the traditional songs in English and Arabic along with the President, Mayor Mary Church.
The president of Israel on 22 December 2013 at the time this video was made was none other than the late Shimon Peres. Besides being a terrorist mastermind, Peres was a personal friend of Francis. In fact, Shimon thought so highly of Francis that he proposed that Francis lead a new organization — a United Nations for religions. Peres was also the impetus for Francis visit to Israel where he escorted Francis to the grave, of the Zionist Theodor Herzel, and where Francis placed a wreath of flowers. One could speculate that this friendship between the two began because they pray to the same god, especially after knowing that Peres endorsed Francis’ book, Rome and Jerusalem: Rabbi Talks with Pope, which names Jesus the Christ in the Hebrew as “Yeshu” (the rabbinical acronym for “May his name and his memory be wiped out”) as well as refers to priest with “komer” (the Hebrew for “idol worshipers”). Remember, Francis’ favorite painting also contains this blasphemy against Our Lord.
Now we return to the video. What are the ‘traditional songs’ are sung in the video? Happy Xmas (War Is Over) by John Lennon and Jingle Bells by James Lord Pierpont. Yes, a song written by an atheist in 1971 and another by a unitarian in 1857 qualifies as ‘traditional’ in the Noahide Novus Ordo. Neither author believes in the Catholic Faith instituted by Christ nor do they mention the Christ-child in their lyrics. What a celebration of Noahidism!

And it came to pass, that when they were there, her days were accomplished, that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him up in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. And there were in the same country shepherds watching, and keeping the night watches over their flock. And behold an angel of the Lord stood by them, and the brightness of God shone round about them; and they feared with a great fear. And the angel said to them: Fear not; for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, that shall be to all the people:
For, this day, is born to you a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord, in the city of David. And this shall be a sign unto you. You shall find the infant wrapped in swaddling clothes, and laid in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly army, praising God, and saying: Glory to God in the highest; and on earth peace to men of good will. And it came to pass, after the angels departed from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another: Let us go over to Bethlehem, and let us see this word that is come to pass, which the Lord hath shewed to us.
And they came with haste; and they found Mary and Joseph, and the infant lying in the manger. And seeing, they understood of the word that had been spoken to them concerning this child. And all that heard, wondered; and at those things that were told them by the shepherds. But Mary kept all these words, pondering them in her heart. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God, for all the things they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.

Dear readers, who do you celebrate your Christmas dinners with? Your loved ones and your family, are we right? Well Francis, back when he was Cardinal Bergoglio spent his Christmases with his relatives didn't he? Or maybe with some fellow Novus Ordo priests and nuns? Nope, the man never ceases to amaze. Bergoglio spent Christmases with Talmudic Jews, the heirs of the Pharisees from the Old Testament. You know those guys who are always following the ‘traditions of men’ or what we now call the ‘oral tradition’ aka the Talmud. A tip of the hat to Martina Katholik for sending us this news story! The Times of Israel: ‘Our Christmas dinners with the pope’ by Gavriel Fiske
According the website of the Archdiocese of Buenos Aires, Bergoglio gave the homily on these Christmas Eves: 2001, 2003, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2010, and 2011. One wonders if the great Rabbi Bergoglio also participated in the kabbalistic ‘Nittel Nacht’ traditions which take place on both Christmas Eves; tearing toilet paper, referring to Christmas by derogatory names, avoiding Talmud study, reading the Toledot Yeshu, playing cards, playing chess, sewing (the favorite of the late Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Menachem Mendel Schneerson), paying bills, balancing the books, or spinning the dreidel. Who will Francis have over at the Vatican this year as his guests and will they celebrate the Talmudic hoax, Hanukkah, which glorifies the supremacy of Klal Yisroel (the Judaic people) over the rest of humanity? As always the underlines are ours for emphasis.
‘Our Christmas dinners with the pope’
Argentina’s Jewish leaders describe an extraordinary relationship with Francis I, who comes to synagogue for ‘selichot’ and loaned out a cathedral for a Shoah event
By Gavriel Fiske March 18, 2013, 5:15 pm
THESSALONIKI, Greece – Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina made history last week by becoming the first pope from Latin America and the first from the Jesuit order. This week, Argentine Jewish leaders, attending a World Jewish Congress meeting in Greece, predicted a new era for Catholic-Jewish relations and described a man who is very close to the Jewish community, who regularly visits synagogues and has invited Jewish friends to Christmas dinner.
“I think it is the first time a pope has been elected that the Jewish community knows previously, and has a long history [with],” said Claudio Epelman, director of the Latin American Jewish Congress, speaking to The Times of Israel on the sidelines of the weekend meeting, held in the northern port city of Thessaloniki in conjunction with public events memorializing the near-destruction of the ancient Sephardic community during the Nazi occupation of northern Greece during World War II.
Epelman said Sunday he was “very, very optimistic” about Catholic-Jewish relations under the new pope, who took the name Francis I and has embarked on what has already been described as a humble, hands-on papacy, eschewing the pope-mobile in favor of shaking hands and meeting children on his first Sunday in office amid the vast crowds at the Vatican.
“If you had to choose a pope by Jewish interest, you would have had to choose Bergoglio,” Epelman said.
“He is a real friend of the Jewish community,” he continued, describing Francis as “totally committed to interfaith activities.” He “loaned out” the Buenos Aires cathedral to the Jewish community to hold a memorial event honoring the victims of Kristallnacht and the Holocaust, Epelman recalled.
“I have been with him many times,” Epelman said, “not only for organized meetings and activities, but also just to discuss and learn from each other. I’ve never spoken about it, but for the last six years I have had Christmas dinner with him, just myself and a few others. It is very private, very intimate… It’s a major holiday to share with a Jew, and he is very kind to hold the dinner.”
Julio Schlosser, the other Argentine delegate in Greece, who is the president of a Buenos Aires synagogue, called Francis “my friend and a friend of the rabbis” who is “very close to the Jewish community.”
Schlosser described how for “many years,” Cardinal Bergoglio has come to his synagogue for selichot (the series of evening penitent prayers held before Rosh Hashana), where he would also give a formal talk.
“It’s very important for the world Jewish community to have somebody like this [in the papacy] because he is very open,” Schlosser added. “He works for the relationship between the Church, not only with the Jews, but with Muslims and other communities.”
Schlosser, who has also had Christmas dinner with the pope, confirmed that Francis I often prefers public transportation to his official car. After a visit to the AMIA Jewish community office building (which was bombed 19 years ago by alleged Iranian and Iranian-backed operatives, with the loss of 85 lives), Bergoglio eschewed his official vehicle in favor of the subway, he said.
Overall, “everything is fine” for the Jews in Argentina, he said, except that “Argentina, Venezuela, Ecuador, Nicaragua… are leftist-run countries who by extension have close relations with Iran.” And despite the recently announced joint Argentine-Iranian probe into the AMIA bombing, he said, “Iran will never accept responsibility for it.”
Schlosser may have an opportunity to discuss these and other issues with his friend the pope in person: He and Epelman left Greece Monday to arrive in Rome as the pope’s personal guests for his Tuesday inaugural mass.
And we find further confirmation over at Dario Uno in their article, Histórico e inédito: católicos, judíos y musumalnes argentinos viajarán a Medio Oriente y el Vaticano juntos:
"We believe we can make a contribution to the world, us 45 traveling Argentineans," said Epelman who spent seven Christmases with then Cardinal Bergoglio at Mass and afterwards at dinner.
Previously, he was the only Jewish observer of General meeting of Latin American and Caribbean Bishops in Aparecida in Brazil where the agent was Bergoglio and thereafter met the present Pope."

An interfaith celebration of Eid e Milad ul Nabi & Christmas
excerpt from the Asia News, Lahore’s Franciscans celebrate Muhammad's birthday
The Franciscan friars of Lahore celebrated the birthday of the Prophet Muhammad along with some Muslim families. The interfaith celebration was held yesterday at the "Dar ul Naeem", center of Franciscan formation, during which the two religious communities also exchanged Christmas wishes.Fr. Jamil Albert, coordinator of the Justice Peace and Integrity with Creation (JPIC), told AsiaNews: ""This is the first time we invited everybody for the joint Eid and Christmas feast. The clerics are more than our friends, many showed up despite differences within Islamic sects as to whether the day should be observed or not. The example of Eid celebration in Christian's house will inspire the whole country".
The ceremony began with the recitation of excerpts from the sacred books of both religions. Some Islamic clerics offered evening prayer in the chapel of the Franciscan center. Then Christmas carols and the naats (songs of praise to Muhammad) were sung and later Christians and Muslims shared dinner. The festivities ended with the cutting of a cake, gifted by the Muslims.
‘It’s not impossible that I will go down in history as the one who split the Catholic Church.’
— self-critical remark Francis said to his inner-circle —
The full quote from a recent Der Spiegel article, Kritik an Franziskus "Der Papst kocht" by Walter Mayr, reads, “In his innermost circle, Francis is said to have once self-critically articulated himself thus: ‘It’s not impossible that I will go down in history as the one who split the Catholic Church.'” (translation from NovusOrdoWire — Francis: “I may go down in history as the one who split the Church”!) The remainder of the brief article mentions the reason for this is that Francis is undermining key doctrines of the Church and as a result is loosing support among the church hierarchy. Francis doesn’t like this one bit nor does he appreciate that the little support he has is hollow and is said to be ‘steaming’. It could be the reason be that St. Januarius’ blood
failed to liquify was that the human volcano known as Francis is getting ready to blow and we will see the wrath of “a man sick with power”. St. Francis of Assisi before he died warned of a “Destroyer” who will cause “great Schisms” in a prophecy. Much of what he prophesied (see below) rings true to Francis. Could it be? We hope not, instead may God help Francis discover and learn to love the Faith.
The Saint Prophecies great Schisms and Tribulations in the Church
A short time be the holy Father’s death, he called together his Children and warned them of the coming troubles, saying:
“Act bravely, my Brethren; take courage, and trust in the Lord. The time is fast approaching in which there will be great trials and afflictions; perplexities and dissensions, both spiritual and temporal, will abound; the charity of many will grow cold, and the malice of the wicked will increase.
The devils will have unusual power, the immaculate purity of our Order, and of others, will be so much obscured that there will be very few Christians who will obey the true Sovereign Pontiff and the Roman Church with loyal hearts and perfect charity. At the time of this tribulation a man, not canonically elected, will be raised to the Pontificate, who, by his cunning, will endeavour to draw many into error and death.
Then scandals will be multiplied, our Order will be divided, and many others will be entirely destroyed, because they will consent to error instead of opposing it.
There will be such diversity of opinions and schisms among the people, the religious and the clergy, that, except those days were shortened, according to the words of the Gospel, even the elect would be led into error, were they not specially guided, amid such great confusion, by the immense mercy of God.
Then our Rule and manner of life will be violently opposed by some, and terrible trials will come upon us. Those who are found faithful will receive the crown of life; but woe to those who, trusting solely in their Order, shall fall into tepidity, for they will not be able to support the temptations permitted for the proving of the elect.
Those who preserve their fervour and adhere to virtue with love and zeal for the truth, will suffer injuries and, persecutions as rebels and schismatics; for their persecutors, urged on by the evil spirits, will say they are rendering a great service to God by destroying such pestilent men from the face of the earth. But the Lord will be the refuge of the afflicted, and will save all who trust in Him. And in order to be like their Head [Jesus Christ], these, the elect, will act with confidence, and by their death will purchase for themselves eternal life; choosing to obey God rather than man, they will fear nothing, and they will prefer to perish [physically] rather than consent to falsehood and perfidy.
Some preachers will keep silence about the truth, and others will trample it under foot and deny it. Sanctity of life will be held in derision even by those who outwardly profess it, for in those days Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor, but a destroyer.”

Includes a fallen shattered Cross!
The purpose of it, ostensibly, is to raise money to help rebuild the church in the town of Norcia which was struck by an earthquake on 30 October 2016. The broken Cross is a from the destroyed Basilica of St. Benedict. The Nativity also paid tribute to the plight of the Moslem invaders of Europe with a boat. Don’t worry Francis still found room in the manger for the Holy Family. Isn’t it a bid odd that a nativity scene, the purpose of which is to honor Our Lord’s birth, is instead focusing on Francis’ pet causes once again?

Inventor of Christianity? On December 17th, the anti-Catholic Italian journalist Eugenio Scalfari, to whom Pope Francis talks regularly, revealed in La Repubblica how Francis answered the question which saint he prefers. Francis said, “The first is obviously Paul. He is the one who constructed our religion.”
Lutheran theses coincide with what happened in the first centuries: At the end of his article, Scalfari writes, "In the early centuries of Christianity, the sacraments were celebrated directly by the faithful and the priests only served.” Scalfari continues, “Francis agrees on these Lutheran theses that coincide with what happened in the first centuries." The Vatican did not deny Scalfari’s claims.
“When Pope Francis participated in the celebration of Martin Luther and his Reformation it captured the essence of the Lutheran thesis: the identification of the faithful with God with no need of intermediation of the clergy but occuring directly. [from the people] This brings us to the one God and assigns a secondary role to the priesthood. So it was in the early centuries of Christianity, when the sacraments were celebrated directly by the faithful and priests only did the service. Francis agrees on these Lutheran theses that coincide with what happened in the first centuries.”
Scalfari: “80 years of my revolutionary Pope”
