In-flight entertainment from the Canton of Usury, Chocolate and Cuckoo Clocks to the City of Pasta and Pigs

Blah, blah, blah, the same old socialist crap.



Greg Burke: Thank you, Your Holiness... we wait a second, here we go... perfect! Thank you in the meantime. To journey, to pray, to work together... we have walked, we have prayed also, at various times, and now we touch on work a little, even to eat after, so that it is seen that to journey together brings fruit. 
Today the welcoming- we have seen, after many speeches that it is the mutual respect and it is something more, it is also friendship. However, there is still so much work to do and so many challenges and this interests us normally, the challenges... so, to you journalists... but, if you want to say something first [Holy Father]?
Francis: Thank you for your work, the day was a little heavy, at least for me... but I am content, I am content [ed. note: or ‘happy’] because the various things that we have done -- that is, the prayers to begin, then the speech during lunch it was the most beautiful, then the academic meeting, and then the Mass, they are things that have made me happy... The tiring but beautiful things! Thank you so much! Now I am available to you.  
Greg Burke: Good. We begin with the Swiss. (Arnaud Bedat of L’Illustre magazine)
Bedat: Holy Father, you have been in Geneva, but also in Switzerland. What are the images and what are the strong, important moments that had an impact on you during this day?
Francis: Repeat for me.
Bedat: (repeated)
Francis: I believe that it is a common word: encounter. It was a day of varied encounters. The right word of the day is ‘encounter,’ and when a person encounters another and feels appreciation for the meeting, this always touches the heart, no? They were positive meetings, good even, beginning with the dialogue with the president at the beginning; it was not a speech of courtesy, as usual... [it was] a deep speech on the profound world debates and [spoken by him] with an intelligence... that I remain astonished, beginning from that.
Then the meetings that you all saw, and that which you did not see is the meeting at lunch, that was very profound [or deep] in the way it touched on many debates, mabe the debate we spent the most time on is "the youth." Because even all of the churches are concerned, in the good sense, for the youth and the pre-synod that occurred in Rome from March 19 and then attracted enough attention, because there were youth of all [different] beliefs, even agnostics and of all the countries. Think, 315 youth there and 15,000 connected [ed note: via Facebook] that they entered and exited and this perhaps awakened a special interest.
But the word that came to me maybe the whole trip is that it was a voyage of ‘encounter.’ Maybe... I don't know... an experience of encounter... no rudeness, nothing entirely formal. A human encounter. And this... between Protestants, Catholics and all [people] it says a lot, eh! 
Greg Burke: Thanks, Holiness. Now the German group. Roland Juchem of the German Catholic CIC Agency is here.
Roland Juchem: Thanks, Holy Father. You speak often of concrete steps toward ecumenism. Today, for example, you again referred to that, saying “Let’s see what is possible to do concretely rather than getting discouraged for what isn’t.”
The German bishops recently have decided to take a step and so we ask ourselves why Archbishop Ladaria wrote a letter that seems like an “emergency brake.” After the meeting May 3, it was affirmed that the German bishops would have had to find a possibly unanimous solution. What will be the next steps? Will an intervention from the Vatican be necessary to clarify or will the German bishops have to find an agreement?
Francis: Well. This is not a novelty because in the Code of Canon Law, what the German bishops were talking about is foreseen: communion in special cases. And, they were looking at the problem of mixed marriages, no? If it is possible or it isn’t possible. And the Code says that the bishop of the particular Church - this word is important, “particular,” if it is of a diocese - must read that. It’s in his hands. This is in the Code. The German bishops, because they had seen that it wasn’t clear... also some priests did things who weren’t in agreement with the bishop, have wished to study this theme and have made this study that I don’t want to exaggerate, but it was a study of more than a year, and more… it’s more than a year… well done… and the study was restrictive.
What the bishops wanted is to say clearly what is in the Code. And, I read it and said: this is a restrictive document, no? It wasn’t open to everyone. It’s a well thought-out thing, with ecclesial spirit. And they wished to do it for the local Church, not the particular. The thing slid along up until there for the German [bishops’] conference. And there, there is a problem, because the Code does not foresee that. It foresees the bishop of the diocese, but not the conference, because a thing approved by an episcopal conference immediately becomes universal. 
And this was the difficulty of the discussion: not so much the content, but this. And they sent the document. Then, there were two or three meetings of dialogue or of clarification and Archbishop Ladaria sent that letter, but with my permission. He didn’t do it alone! I told him: ‘Yes, it’s better to make a step ahead and say that the document isn’t yet mature and that the thing needed to be studied more.’ Then, there was another meeting and at the end they will study the thing. 
I think that this will be an orientative document so that each of the diocesan bishops can manage what canon law already permits.

It wasn’t a brake … it is reading the thing so that it goes along the right path. When I made a visit to the Lutheran Church of Rome, a question of the kind was posed, and I replied according to the spirit of the Code of Canon Law. It is the spirit that they are seeking now. Maybe it wasn’t the right information in the right moment, a little bit of confusion, but this is the thing: the particular Church, the Code permits it, the local Church [episcopal conference] cannot because it would be universal. 
(journalist inaudible) 
But the conference can study and give orientative opinions to help the bishops to manage the particular cases. Thanks.
Greg Burke: Now from the Spanish group there is Eva Fernandez of COPE agency and Spanish radio
Francis: They are good, these [journalists] of COPE
Eva Fernandez: Thank you, Holy Father! We have seen that even the secretary general of the Ecumenical Council of Churches spoke of help to refugees. Just recently we have seen the incident of the Aquarius ship, also the separation of families in the United States. Do you think that some leaders instrumentalize/use the tragedy of refugees. Do they use them...?
Francis: I have spoken a lot on refugees, the criteria are those that I have said: to welcome, to accompany, to place, to integrate. This is the criteria for all refugees. Then I have said that every country should do this with the virtue of the rule of prudence, because a country should welcome as many refugees as it can and as many as it can integrate, educate, assimilate, give work to. This I would say is the straightforward/easy, serene plan for refugees. Here we are living [with] a wave of refugees that flee from wars and from hunger. The war and hunger of many countries in Africa, wars and persecution in the Middle East. Italy and Greece were very generous in welcoming [refugees], and for the Middle East, Turkey [was also], in respect to Syria, it has received many... Lebanon many... Lebanon has as many Syrians as Lebanese... and then Jordan... other countries, also Spain has received [them? some?].
There is a problem of trafficking migrants, and also there is the problem when in some cases they return, because they should return if this -- I do not know/understand well the terms in agreement -- if they are in the Libyan water, they should return... and there, I have seen the photographs of the detention centers controlled by the traffickers. Traffickers immediately separate the women from the men... women and babies go... God knows where! This is what the traffickers do! There is even a case that I know of where the traffickers were close to a ship that had accepted barges and... [they were saying] "give us the women and the babies and take the males."
These traffickers and the detention centers of the traffickers eh, that have returned, they are terrible... terrible! In the detention camps of the Second World War they saw these things! And also the mutilizations in the torture of [forced?] labor and then they threw them to be in the comunes of the men. For this the leaders are concerned that they [the people] do not return and fall into the hands of these people [the traffickers]. It is a world-wide concern! I know that the leaders speak on this and they want to find an agreement, even to modify the Dublin agreement and all of this.  
In Spain you have had the case of this ship that is docked in Valencia, but all of this is a mess... the problem of the wars is difficult to resolve. The problem of the persecution also of Christians in the Middle East, also in Nigeria... but the problem of hunger they can resolve, and many European leaders are thinking of an emergency plan to invest in these countries, to invest intelligently, to give work and education in these two things in the countries from which those people come... because -- [I’ll say] one thing, not to offend, but it is the truth -- in the collective subconscious, is a bad motto: Africa is exploited. And Africa is to be preyed on... this is in the subconscious... ‘eh, they are Africans.’ Always ‘land of slaves.’
And this should change with this plan of investment, and to increase education, because the African people have many cultural riches, many, and they have a great intelligence. The children are very intelligent and they, with a good education, can go beyond... this will be the road halfway to the goal, but in the moment leaders should make an agreement between themselves to go forward with these emergency fixes... this here in Europe! We go in America: in America there is a great migration problem.  
(journalist inaudible)
In Latin America too there is an internal migration problem... in my homeland there is a migration problem from North to South and even these people leave the countryside because there is no work and the go to the big cities and where there are these megacities [or huge cities], the slums and all these things, but it is also an external migration to other countries that have work... and speaking concretely of the United States, I back that which the bishops of the country say. I side with them. Thank you.
Greg Burke:Thanks, Holiness. Now is the English group: Deborah Castellano Lubov of the Zenit Agency.
Deborah Castellano Lubov (Zenit): Thanks, Holiness! Holiness, in your address today to the ecumenical encounter you made reference to the enormous strength of the Gospel. We know some of the Churches, now the World Council of Churches, the so-called “pacifist Churches” who believe that a Christian cannot use violence. We remember that two years ago in the Vatican there was as conference organized. Do you think that it would be the case for the Catholic Church to unite to these so-called “Churches of peace” and set aside the doctrine of just war? Thanks.
Francis: A clarification, why do you say that there are “pacifist Churches?”
Deborah Castellano Lubov: They are considered as pacifist because they have this way of reasoning that if a person (intuits) a violence, at that point they can no longer be considered Christians.
Francis: Thanks. I understand. Because you put your finger right in the wound, eh? I think that… today at lunch a pastor said that maybe the first human right is the right to hope and I liked that. And this has to do a bit with this and we spoke about the crisis of human rights today. I think that I have to begin from this to arrive to your question.  The crisis of human rights is clearly seen. They speak a bit about human rights but so many groups or some countries take a distance, and “yes, human rights,” but there isn’t the strength, the enthusiasm, the conviction. I don’t say 70 years ago but 20 years ago. And this is grave because we have to see the causes, but what are the causes for which we have arrived to this that today human rights are relative. Also the right to peace is relative. It is a crisis of human rights. This I think that we must think it through to the end, or with certainty.
Then, Churches of peace. I think that all the Churches that have this spirit of peace must reunite and work together as we said in the speeches today, myself and the other people that spoke. And at lunch, unity for peace was spoken of. Peace is an exigency because there is risk of a war that we … some have said this: this third world war, if it is done, we know with which arms it will be done… but if there were a fourth, it would be done with sticks because humanity will be destroyed. The commitment for peace is serious, but when you think of the money that is spent on weapons… for this, the religions of peace… is the mandate of God. Peace, fraternity, human unity. All of the conflicts, don’t resolve them like Cain, resolve them with negotiations, with dialogue, with mediations… for example, we’re in a crisis of mediations. The mediation as a juridical figure (very rich) today is in pure crisis. Hope is in crisis, crisis of human rights, crisis of mediations, crisis of peace.
But then if you say that there are religions of peace, I ask myself, where are the religions of war? It’s tough to understand this. It’s tough. But, some groups, I would say in almost all of the small religious groups, I will say a bit simply fundamentalists, seek wars… Also we Catholics have some. They always seek destruction, no? And this is very important to have our eyes on it.  I don’t know if I replied. Thanks.
They say that the population is asking for lunch, eh, dinner, that there is just enough time to arrive with a full stomach. It’s just to tell you… a word that I want to say clearly that today was an ecumenical day, really ecumenical! And at lunch we said a beautiful word, a beautiful thing, that I leave with you so that you think on it and reflect, you make a nice consideration of this. In the ecumenical movement we have to take from the dictionary a word: “proselytism.” Clear? You cannot have ecumenism with proselytism. You have to choose. Either you have an ecumenical spirit or you are a proselytizer.
Thanks! I would continue speaking because I like it… but now let’s make the Substitute [of the Secretariat of State] come because it is the last trip he’ll make with us, because now he’s going to change color, but not for embarrassment! We want to say goodbye to him. It’s a Sardinian cake to celebrate!
Cardinal-elect Angelo Becciu (Sardinian-born Substitute of the Holy See Secretariat of State): Thanks! It is a double surprise of calling me and thanking me in front of you! And then there’s a Sardinian cake. Well, then, we’ll try it with pleasure! I truly thank the Holy Father for this occasion, but for everything, because he has allowed me this magnificent experience of traveling so much with him. At the beginning, he scared me saying, ‘No, I’ve made few trips.’ Do you remember? And then after one, he added another and then another and we said to ourselves, ‘good thing he said there would be few and they’ve been many.’ A magnificent experience of seeing the Holy Father spread the Word of God courageously. My service has been only this: to help him in this. Alright? Thanks to all of you and to those who have helped us! Thanks.
Francis: Buon appetito, have a good dinner and thanks so much! And pray for me, please. Thanks.

The Holocaust is the keystone of Francis’ mental framework


...without which, it all falls apart.





We have exhaustively covered how Francis “Who am I to judge?” in fact doesn’t judge anything or anyone unless it goes against his religion of Holocaustianity.  How central the Holocaust is to Francis and his religious framework has been apparent this past week. On Saturday, 16th of June, Francis finished off his address to the Delegation of the Forum of Family Associations with this,

When I was a boy, the teacher taught us history and told us what the Spartans were doing when a child was born with malformations: they took him to the mountain and threw him down, to keep "the purity of the race". And we were shocked: "But how, how can this be done, [those] poor children!" It was an atrocity. Today we do the same thing. Have you wondered why you do not see many dwarves on the street? Because the protocol of many doctors - many, not all - is to ask the question: "Is he/she bad?". I say this with pain. In the last
century the whole world was scandalized by what the Nazis did to treat the purity of the race. Today we do the same, but with white gloves.


On Monday, the 18th of June, Francis followed this up with a homily on communication, lies, and evil stating,

Have last century’s tragedies thought us nothing? Pope Francis cites a glaring example, the persecution of Jews. “A slanderous communication against the Jews; and they ended up in Auschwitz because they did not deserve to live. Oh... it’s a horror, but a horror that happens today: in small societies, in people and in many countries. The first step is to take charge of communication, and after: destruction, judgment, and death.... The Pope’s invitation is therefore to re-read the story of Nabot in the first Book of Kings and then to think and pray for the many victims - men, women, children, entire nations - devastated by “so many dictatorships with “white gloves”.


Francis cannot differentiate between good and bad because everything is relative.  The only thing he knows with certainty is that the Holocaust was an absolute evil.   It is the standard which he uses as a basis for his judgment of what constitutes evil.  He uses this gold standard as the foundation of all his values and has thereby become an echo chamber of the Holocaust education machine.  When speaking of abortion or slander, it all has relevance only because of the Holocaust.

Francis sees the Holocaust as being the only memory worthy of being a frame of reference and in order for Christians to be forgiven for the Holocaust, Francis wants them to adopt the Noahide laws by hook or by crook.  As the fraud Elie Wiesel once wrote, “In the beginning was the Holocaust...”

It’s not Friday but Francis has a fortune for you




Wonders never cease, nor does the stupidity which exits from the mouth of Francis.  In his address to the Delegation of the Forum of Family Associations in Clementine Hall, Francis gave the advice that, “Love is like making pasta: every day.”  The context which he said this in can be seen here but in essence what Francis was saying is that: men should be men, women should be women, and they should help each other in this; and that family is a good sacrifice.  Doesn’t make much sense, does it?  There is much more to be said about Francis’ speech but that will save for another day and another post.


Straight from the pasta lover’s mouth!

Vatican spokesman explains why Cardinal Parolin attended Bilderberg Group


...to take Francis’ Yiddish Gospel to the ‘peripheries’


Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Vatican Secretary of State, accepted an invitation to address the controversial and secretive Bilderberg Meeting earlier this month in order to take the teaching of the Church to a group who would not otherwise hear it, a Vatican spokesman has told the Register. 
The spokesman said Italian organizers of the visit were persistent in extending an invitation to the most senior Vatican official after Pope Francis to this year’s event, which took place June 7-10 in Turin, Italy. “The cardinal decided to take part after the Italian organizers very insistently invited him to the meeting six months ago,” the spokesman explained. “He thought about it for a long time and, after consulting the necessary people, he decided to go.” 
[...] 
In his June 15 comments to the Register, the Vatican spokesman stressed that Parolin “did not ask to go” to the event, but decided to attend after a “long process of consultation.” He said he did not know why the organizers were so insistent, except that it was probably because Pope Francis is an “important voice” on the world stage. 
The Vatican Secretary of State was there for a “short time — about an hour and three quarters,” he disclosed, during which the cardinal gave an address about the “social doctrine of the Church” followed by a question and answer session. 
The Pope was certainly aware of the cardinal’s participation, the spokesman said, and that the cardinal was “fully aware of the controversial nature” of the event but felt encouraged by having already met many of the participants in “other contexts.” 
“He already knew some of the people, prime ministers and so on,” the spokesman said. 
[...] 
The Vatican spokesman brushed off concerns about the secretive nature of the event, saying that the Chatham House Rule is well known and widely used. “Various other meetings have the same rules,” he said. The Bilderberg Meeting says participants are free to discuss the meeting and do so every year, but they are asked not to quote each other. 
Some have speculated that this year’s event was to discuss how to thwart rising nationalist and populist movements, seen most clearly in the election of President Donald Trump, Brexit, and the recent elections in Italy which saw two populist parties gain power. 
The Vatican spokesman said he “could not say anymore” on the issue, reiterating that the cardinal was there “simply to convey Catholic social teaching” and to take “the voice of the Church to people who wouldn’t otherwise hear it.” 
Although the spokesman wasn’t present with the cardinal, he said he believed his speech and remarks were “very well received.” 
The Register contacted the Bilderberg Meeting to ask why the organizers were so insistent on having the cardinal participate and whether it seeks to promote a globalist agenda, but it has not yet responded.

Is the Vatican paying residuals to The United Methodist Church?


The logo for The Synod of Bishops for the Pan-Amazon region in Rome 2019 was released earlier this week.  Quickly examining it, doesn’t it look an awful lot like the flame & cross logo of the United Methodist Church?  Since it is trademarked and synonymous with methodists, one wonders if the Vatican is making royalty payments to the The United Methodist Church?  Will they adopt the rumored exceptions — for having married priests and female deacons at the Synod — as the Methodists have too?  Regardless, look for the upcoming Synod to be a circus planned down to its last detail where a predetermined anti-Catholic agenda is shoved down the throats of all and billed as grass-root democracy, in which the people tell Francis what Catholicism ought to be.

 The Vatican’s copy-and-paste design for the upcoming Synod.

Kiko Argüello celebrates Talmudic Judaism & Noahide Holocaustianity


The Neocatechumenal Way celebrates its 40th anniversary of its arrival in Berlin with a concert performance of ‘The Suffering of the Innocents’, a symphony by its founder, Kiko Argüello.  The symphony, ‘The Suffering of the Innocents’ presents Talmudic Judaism as if it is the Old Testament religion practiced by the Holy Family.  Can you imagine Jesus the Christ praying to Hashem (i.e. The Name)?  Or the Blessed Virgin Mary abandoning her son, Jesus, at the foot of Cross in order that she can cry with the Talmudic Jews (who brag they killed her son, see Talmud Sanhedrin 43a (Steinsaltz Edition) page 158 & page 159) in the ‘gas chambers’ while they recite the Shema Yisrael? (Which is a denial of the divinity of Jesus the Christ.)  Look no further than the absurd mockery composed by Kiko Argüello.  He and the rabbis have been bringing the altar of the ‘Holocaust’ to the members of the Neocatechumenal Way and the world for years, masquerading as Catholicism. The Neocatechumenal Way sells itself as having rediscovered early Christianity — converting pagans into Christians — when the reality is the Neocatechumenal Way converts gentiles into noahide members of Holocaustianity who look to their Christ denying and Christ killing ‘elder brothers’ for guidance.  Francis, Benedict XVI, and John Paul II love this garbage.  It’s not a stretch to say that they are in agreement with the rabbis in cursing those who don’t go along with this charade.  If these outright falsehoods, accepted and celebrated by the hierarchy and pewsitters of the Novus Ordo, don’t send cold shivers down your spine, what would?



 (underlines are ours for emphasis)
Francis’ message 
To His Excellency Most Reverend Msgr. Heiner Koch, Archbishop of Berlin 
Pope Francis has joyfully heard that the execution of the symphony "The Suffering of the Innocents" by Kiko Argüello is to be held in Berlin and greets all those who agreed to the occasion of this event at the Berliner Philharmonie. Rooted in tradition and inspired by biblical lamentations, this symphony commemorates the many victims of the Shoah. Never must the memory of the atrocious violence, the indescribable pain and the extermination of a people cease. It is rather a constant warning to all of us of a commitment to reconciliation, mutual understanding and love towards the "elder brothers", the Jews, and at the same time to a life dedicated to the suffering, the needy and all those who from the profound yearning to salvation. 
With the best personal wishes. 
Pietro Cardinal Parolin Secretary of State of His Holiness 





Celebrating 40 years of the Neocatechumenal Way in Berlin




A message from the composer, Kiko Argüello 
Dear brothers and sisters: How could I presume to compose music? Is it my pride? Or my vanity? Be that as it may, an elderly priest once told me: “Never avoid doing good for fear of vanity, because that comes from the devil.” 
To do good...” Is it good to try to compose music? I present to you a small musical composition, which I would like to be a homage to the suffering of the innocents. Can music, perhaps, say something more profound on such a significant theme...? The suffering of the innocents... The philosopher Sartre said: “Woe to the man whom the anger of God crushes against the wall,” and Nietzsche: “If God exists and does not help those who suffer, he is a monster, and if he cannot help them, he is not God, he does not exist.” 
To be crushed against the wall. Men lying on the street, dying of cold. Children abandoned and housed in horrific orphanages, where they suffer violence and are abused. That woman, whom I knew in that neighborhood, suffering from Parkinson's disease, abandoned by her husband, whose mentally-ill son beat her with a stick, and was begging for alms. I was overwhelmed… 
What a mystery the suffering of so many innocents who bear the sin of others: incest, a violence unheard of, that line of naked women and children going towards the gas chamber, and that deep pain of one of the guards who was hearing inside his heart a voice: get in line with them and go with them to die; and he did not know where that voice was coming from… 
Many say that after the horror of Auschwitz it is no longer possible to believe in God. No! It is not true! 
In this symphony, Mary is portrayed totally submitted to the scandal of the suffering of the innocents in her own flesh. “Oh, what pain!” a voice sings as a sword pierces her soul, united to all the mothers that watched their children being killed in the concentration camps, that wept while singing Shema Yisrael. We wish to offer this work as a bridge of love and reconciliation.

Cardinal Pietro Parolin will be attending Bilderberg 2018


The rabbinically approved Cardinal Parolin (center) in a synagogue in Israel.


Below are screenshots from the Bilderberg Group’s website and links to the relevant pages.  As one can see: Parolin, H.E. Pietro (VAT), Cardinal and Secretary of State; will be in attendance.


[...]




The topics to be discussed by the Bilderberg Group are the following:



Keep in mind that the next time one hears Francis lamenting: inequality, the marginalized, immigration, business, war, usury, the financial system, etc... that Francis and his lackeys are full conspirators in the system they complain about.  The lamentations are for show only.  Please, don’t be gullible and think otherwise.

Additional Commentary:

Francis venerates a Russian Orthodox saint!


The Russian Orthodox are almost as frequent visitors to the Vatican as the Talmudists are.


Francis met once again with his friend, Metropolitan Hilarion (Alfeyev) of Volokolamsk, chairman of the Moscow Patriarchate’s Department for External Church Relations.  The two have known each other for some time and were introduced by the late Rabbi Angel Kreiman who, as a Cooperator of Opus Dei, met Hilarion at an interfaith congress held at one of Opus Dei’s universities.  (Rabbi Kreiman was Francis go to rabbi until he died.)  One wonders what these two chums discussed that didn’t make the official record — communism or navel-gazing?

Metropolitan Hilarion of Volokolamsk is a frequent visitor at the Vatican and he usually brings a delegation of orthodox with him.  This time the group was rather large.  In the public statement, Francis concedes to Metropolitan Hilarion’s complaints from 2014 concerning “Uniatism”, Greek Catholics, and the Ukraine.  Francis told Hilaron and the delegation from the Russian Orthodox Church (ROC) that the Vatican under him has abandoned the goal of converting the members of the ROC to the Catholic Faith and also doesn’t care about correcting the errors in their beliefs.


“I am happy to take the road of unity with you: the only road that promises us something certain, because the path of division leads us to war and destruction. And before you I would like to reiterate – in a special way before you, my dear brother, and before all of you – that the Catholic Church will never allow an attitude of division to arise from her people. We will never allow ourselves to do this, I do not want it. In Moscow – in Russia – there is only one Patriarchate: yours. We will not have another one. And when some Catholic faithful, be they laypeople, priests or bishops, raise the banner of Uniatism, which does not work anymore, and is over, then it causes me pain. The Churches that are united in Rome must be respected, but Uniatism as a path of unity is not valid today.” — Francis 


Francis said further that he and Kirill are brothers that are spiritually walking together.  Perhaps, Francis is running a scheme with cigarettes à la the “Tobacco Metropolitan”?  After all, calculating Francis must of had an ulterior motive for prohibiting the sale of cigarettes to Vatican employees.  Or is this Francis’ way of stating that he is a communist and agrees with the goals of the KGB-agent (codename ‘Mikhailov’) Kirill?


Seraphim of Sarov


“I would like to say something to you: when we met with the Patriarch, afterwards he sent me a relic of Saint Seraphim. I keep that relic on my nightstand, and at night, before going to bed, and in the morning, when I get up, I venerate it and pray for our unity.” — Francis


Francis told the ROC delegation and the world that he (like John Paul II) regards the navel-gazing (hesychast) sympathizer of the Old Believers, Seraphim of Sarov, a saint and further that he venerates him twice a day!

Wow, what else does one need to know?

Francis doesn’t want to convert the Russian Orthodox people, or correct the errors of their church, and he venerates one of their saints!







Francis’ full remarks
Thank you so much for your visit, and also for this meeting, which helps us so much to live our faith in unity and in the hope to walk together. I am happy to take the road of unity with you: the only road that promises us something certain, because the path of division leads us to war and destruction. And before you I would like to reiterate – in a special way before you, my dear brother, and before all of you – that the Catholic Church will never allow an attitude of division to arise from her people. We will never allow ourselves to do this, I do not want it. In Moscow – in Russia – there is only one Patriarchate: yours. We will not have another one. And when some Catholic faithful, be they laypeople, priests or bishops, raise the banner of Uniatism, which does not work anymore, and is over, then it causes me pain. The Churches that are united in Rome must be respected, but Uniatism as a path of unity is not valid today. Instead it brings me comfort when I find this: the extended hand, the fraternal embrace, thinking together, and journeying. Ecumenism is made by journeying. We walk. Some think – but this is not right – that there must first be doctrinal agreement, on all the points of division, and then the journey. This does not work for ecumenism, because we do not know when agreement will come. I once heard a man of the Church, a man of God, who said: “I know which day a doctrinal agreement will be signed”. They asked him: “When?” – “The day after the coming of the glorious Christ”. We must continue to study theology, to clarify the points, but in the meantime let us walk together, let us not wait for these things to be resolved in order to walk, no. We journey together and also do this, but walking in love, in prayer; as in this example of the relics. Prayer together, for each other, in dialogue. This is so good. The meeting with His Holiness Kirill was very good for me, I found a brother.  
And now, spiritually, we walk together. And a couple of words to finish. One on the respect of Catholics towards you, Russian Orthodox brothers: the Catholic Church, the Catholic Churches must not get involved in internal matters of the Russian Orthodox Church, nor in political issues. This is my attitude, and the attitude of the Holy See today. And those who meddle do not obey the Holy See. This regards politics. The second thing: piety. It is important that we pray for each other, also in personal prayer. We know new brothers and sisters, and then there is also personal prayer. I would like to say something to you: when we met with the Patriarch, afterwards he sent me a relic of Saint Seraphim. I keep that relic on my nightstand, and at night, before going to bed, and in the morning, when I get up, I venerate it and pray for our unity.
Thank you very much. Let us pray for each other. Let us bless each other. And let us go together. Thank you.

Francis, “The Holy Spirit is a disaster... the author of diversity... [and] the Creator of unity.”


The ‘humble’ Francis pontificates from his dais.



“I had thought of making a speech, well-written, good… But then it came to me to speak off-the-cuff, to say things suited to this moment. 
The key to what I will say is what the Cardinal [Prefect of the Congregation] asked for: authentic criteria to guide us. Because truly, today many things happen and, so as not to lose ourselves in this world, in the fog of worldliness, of provocations, of the spirit of war, many things, we need authentic criteria that guide us. That guide us in discernment. 
Then, there is something else: this Holy Spirit is a disaster [laughter] because He never tires of being creative! Now, with the new forms of consecrated life, He is truly creative, with the charisms… It is interesting: He is the Author of diversity but at the same time the Creator of unity. ”

the strange wakes of Opus Dei


Recently, we received a question asking us why we refer to Opus Dei (formally known as The Prelature of the Holy Cross and Opus Dei) as Opus Judei.  There are several reasons for this, the strongest being that many of the teachings of José María Escriba resemble Talmudic Judaism if not are borrowed from it. Below is one example of borrowing from Talmudic Judaism. The wakes of the founder of Opus Judei, José María Escriba, his successor, Álvaro del Portillo, and his successor, Javier Echevarría, are bizarre. Have you ever seen a Catholic laid out on a carpet on the floor?

John Paul II came to Álvaro del Portillo’s wake which was carried out in the same manner.

You guessed it, Javier Echevarría lays on the floor for his wake too!

The uses concerning the care of the dead are marked with extreme simplicity. (M.C. p. 355) About 20 minutes after death, the body is stripped, covered with a white sheet and then [put] lying on the floor.”

Strange?

Isn’t it?
