the new evangelization — the Germans invade Rome! (part 2)

Watch the Germans’ encore performance of sacrilege and immodesty at the Basilica Papale di San Paolo fuori le Mura as their pilgrimage winds down.


The Pope Video — Season 3 Episode 9

Malachi Martin the Kabbalist

“A double-minded man is inconstant in all his ways.”
— James 1, 8 —

Wolfgang’s letter to Malachi...

If I were younger, how I would love to follow in your footsteps to learn Hebrew, and delve into the Kabbalistic literature— without of course forgetting Jacob Boehme.  Actually, it seems to me that Kabbalah, Hermeticism, and the doctrine of our German mystic can hardly be separated.  These three legacies seem to form one underlying tradition, one grand perennial doctrine, which as you say springs from Christ Himself.  What Boehme has done is to expound that doctrine more openly, and in overtly Christian terms.  Perhaps, thanks to him, the Catholic Church will one day make Kabbalah its own!*  And I wonder whether perhaps it will be on the basis of this assimilated Kabbalah that the Church will eventually resolve the enigma of the “separated religions,” and in doing so will realize her own authentic and ultimate Catholicity.
Permit me to share with you a few quotations which you may enjoy.  The first comes from a book by Gershom Scholem [Zur Kabbala und ihrer Symbolik]  After pointing out that the Hebrew words ‘or (light) ras (mystery) have the same numerical value 207, he goes on to say: 
“Thus the luster of the divine light that shines in the Toyrah is mirrored in the mysteries of this book.  But since these mysteries appear under the guise of the literal sense, their light is darkened.  The literal sense of the Toyrah is darkness, but the kabbalistic sense, the mystery, is the ‘Zohar,’ which shines through every line of the text.”  
Is this not marvelous?  Here too, it seems, one can say: “The light shineth in the darkness... 
Next, let me give a quotation from the Zohar (Book I): 
“The primal center is the innermost light, of a translucence, subtleness, and purity beyond comprehension.  That inner point extended becomes a ‘palace’ which serves as an enclosure if the center, and is also of a radiance translucent to an incomprehensible degree.  The ‘palace’ extends into a vestment for itself, the primal light.  From thence outward, there is an extension upon extension, each constituting a vestment to the one before, as a membrane to the brain.  Though membrane first, each extension becomes brain to the next extension.”  
I am particularly struck by the phrase: “from thence outward.”  It seems to me to betoken the point of inversion: the point where “intensive” extension becomes extensive, that is to say, quantitative. 
One more quotation, if I may (this to comes from Book I of the Zohar): 
“Rabbi Isaac [Luria] said: At the Creation, God irradiated the world from end to end with the light, but then it was withdrawn, so as to deprive the sinners of the world of its enjoyment, and it is stored away fro the righteous, as it stands written: ‘Light is sown for the righteous’ (Ps. 97:11); then will the world be in harmony and all will be united into one; but until the future world is set up, this light is put away and hidden.   This light emerged from the darkness which was hewed out by the strokes of the Most Secret; and likewise, from the light which was hidden away, through some secret path, there was hewed out of the darkness of the lower world in which inheres the light.  This lower darkness is called ‘night’ in the verse, ‘and the darkness He called night’ (Gen. 1:5).”  
Now, is this not in essence the “triple cosmology” of Jacob Boehme?

excerpt from the 15 December 1998 letter of Wolfgang Smith to Malachi Martin, In Quest of Catholicity: Malachi Martin Responds to Wolfgang Smith, (2016), pp. 76-8.

Malachi’s response letter...

God, the Light, surely acted through [Jacob] Boehme, Rabbi Isaac [Luria], and [Shlomo Ben Yehuda] Ibn Gebirol and others.  You now have a great opportunity to explain the unity of the mystical knowledge of the divine as distinct from the rational.  I do believe John of the Cross with his doctrine of Light and Darkness belongs in this explication. 
The Kabbalah connection is obvious.  Interestingly, the root-word in Semitic, QBL, has the same basic signification as the Greek which John the Evangelist uses in regard to man’s incapacity/non-reception/rejection of the LIGHT.  The Gematric value of ‘OR and RAS was important to the Rabbis.  But the best among them used Gematric values, not as normative of meaning, but as confirmative. 
In a previous letter I mentioned certain caveats and precautions in expounding this magnificent theme to a Roman Catholic audience.   After the New Year’s beginning, let me drop you a few lines about this matter. 

excerpt from the December 1998 letter of Malachi Martin to Wolfgang Smith, In Quest of Catholicity: Malachi Martin Responds to Wolfgang Smith, (2016), p. 79.

Here we have the supposed traditional Catholic Malachi Martin writing that God acted through:  the Lutheran-Kabbalist, Jakob Böhme;  Rabbi Isaac Luria, another Kabbalist who taught that the Messiah will come only after Israel corrects God’s mistakes throughout the world;  and Solomon ibn Gabirol (Avicebron), a Spanish poet and Kabbalist, who created a female golem!  Martin next has the nerve to lump Saint John of the Cross with these kabbalists when the reality is that Saint John of the Cross was a Judaic convert who left behind the Talmudic mentality when he embraced Jesus the Christ as his Savior.

Martin then goes on to extol rabbis for using Gematria in its normative and confirmative senses.  Gematria for those who do not know is a Kabbalistic method of interpreting the Hebrew scriptures by computing the numerical value of words, based on those of their constituent letters.  It’s insanity!

Finally, Malachi Martin advises Wolfgang Smith to use caution in expounding this “magnificent theme” to Roman Catholic audiences.  Telling him, he will offer some helpful tips on this matter after the New Year.

What more proof does one need to understand that Martin like Francis is a traditionalist, a rabbinic traditionalist.

What else was this kabbalist up to around this time?

He was hanging out with occultic sedevacantists.

Fr. Thomas ‘three Martinis a day’ Rosica tells critics they need to “go to confession”

Modernists put their pride on display!

To a modernist there’s absolutely nothing to condemn about Francis disregarding Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition, the two sources of Divine Revelation.  Modernists see themselves as gods as they go about correcting the mistakes of God and perfecting the world.

Fr. Thomas ‘three Martinis a day’ Rosica writes that Francis is a dictator with no regard for Holy Scripture or for Catholic Tradition which are both “disordered attachments”.

“Pope Francis breaks Catholic traditions whenever he wants because he is “free from disordered attachments.” Our Church has indeed entered a new phase: with the advent of this first Jesuit pope, it is openly ruled by an individual rather than by the authority of Scripture alone or even its own dictates of tradition plus Scripture.”  
— Fr. Thomas Rosica, (English language media attaché of the Holy See Press Office & CEO of Salt and Light)

Two peas in a pod. To get an idea of how pro-rabbinic, pro-homosexual, modernist, and anti-Catholic Rosica is (click here).

It’s hard to predict what will come next. Francis is shrewd, and he has repeatedly praised the Jesuit trait of "holy cunning" – that Christians should be "wise as serpents but innocent as doves," as Jesus put it. The pope's openness, however, also a signature of his Jesuit training and development, means that not even he is sure where the spirit will lead. He has said: "I don't have all the answers. I don't even have all the questions. I always think of new questions, and there are always new questions coming forward."”

the new evangelization — the Germans invade Rome!

Watch the youth of Germany go on a sacrilegious pilgrimage.  The reader is forewarned, this video has it all:  immodest dress, female altar boys, rock 'n roll music, neon lights, hats in church, flag waving, clapping, etc... It’s one giant Novus Ordo mess as San Giovanni in Laterano is desecrated.

(The mayhem starts at 19 minutes & 39 seconds.)

Francis’ modernist canard of the day

Gee, we wonder why there was no mention of usury resulting in the financialization of all things and women having to work?

Oh, that’s right Francis works for those people and shares in their anti-Catholic goals.
