A blog about the life & times of Jorge Bergoglio (aka Francis)
It's not just Philadelphia that loves him. The whole world loves him. Why is that? Because this man who dares to call himself the pope is of the world. If Bergolio was a truly a man of Christ, the world would not love him. Everything that he taught and spoken is exactly what the world wants to hear. Not what it needs to hear.
Absolutely.The Man of Pain was despised. Mr Bergoglio is not, and is embraced by the world as he embraces its false and empty values.
What I want to know is what happened to all the (consecrated) hosts?"The pontiff will celebrate mass in Philadelphia on Sunday before a gathering of up to 2 million people. Around 500,000 are expected to receive communion, requiring huge quantities of wafers to be available. Most have been ordered from religious communities."http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/sep/22/pope-francis-philadelphia-mass-communion-wafers-nunsArchFairyLiar Chaput: "about 18,000 attendees at the congress and somewhere between 800,000 and 900,000 for the final papal Mass."http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/after-the-popes-visit-an-exclusive-interview-with-archbishop-chaput-89478/"One crowd-safety expert estimated the number of people at the papal Mass on Sunday at no more than 142,000. But his calculations included only the Benjamin Franklin Parkway west of Logan Square, as a photo showing the complete roadway was unavailable. One crowd-safety expert estimated the number of people at the papal Mass on Sunday at no more than 142,000. But his calculations included only the Benjamin Franklin Parkway west of Logan Square, as a photo showing the complete roadway was unavailable....For 800,000 people to gather safely on the Parkway, the street would have to be four times its actual length, give or take, depending on how many people crammed into its grassy border strips."http://articles.philly.com/2015-09-30/news/66990917_1_logan-square-papal-mass-crowd-estimateSo what happened to the 300,000 excess consecrated hosts? [that weren't given to the drunken, football watching, living in mortal sin (or any yobo in shorts and tank top who happened to put their hand out) Popadelphians]?In Baltimore JP2 Mass they were thrown in the garbage.Note how all the 'conservative' pundits are in Rome wringing their hands that the synod is going to change doctrine (or not) to give communion to divorced and remarried, cohabitating and/or sodomites (who aren't ordained and thus concelebrating). Meanwhile, no-one says a word about the sacrilege 'masses' and 'communions' that happen every day. I don't know how any of them can keep a straight face anymore. "When Bl. John Paul II celebrated Holy Mass on the National Mall in Washington, DC, when he visited the United States in October 1979, the thousands of leftover consecrated Hosts were gathered up and carted off in plastic trash bags. A priest in attendance at the time has verified this.I have a close priest friend whose conversion to Tradition occurred in 1995 when, as a seminarian at Mt. St. Mary’s, he was forced (yes, forced) to distribute Holy Communion at John Paul II’s Mass at Camden Yard."He saw hosts in large clear plastic garbage bags “consecrated” hundreds of yards away from the altar. Afterward, he saw those same bags still full actually pitched into dumpsters along with hosts scattered in the stands. That was enough for him.http://wdtprs.com/blog/2013/08/wyd-holy-communion-from-disposable-plastic-cups-at-mega-mass/
Fortunately, the consecration of the novus ordo missae is invalid, as also would be the consecratory powers of the falsely ordained in the invalid newer Anglicanized rite of ordination that antipope Paul VI instituted, nearly identical to the Cranmerian rite that Pope Leo XIII condemned in Apostolicae Curae. However, that being said, the novus ordoites THINK that they are Christ Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity, and are therefore GUILTY for sin of sacrilege of doing that to these hosts, regardless of whether in reality they are consecrated or not. See any book on confession or moral theology and the principle remains the same. An analogy would be akin to how the prelates and clerics of the novus ordo post Vatican II church treat the flock in their care, treating their eternal souls as so much garbage to be disposed of in hell rather than teaching them the true Apostolic Faith so that they would have a chance at salvation.The video is illustrative of the story which was carried by our local Gannett mouthpiece, who quoted a guy named Steve Mitchell, a deacon from Detroit who assisted at Bergoglio's mass in Philly. He said about Bergoglio: "This is a guy who has caught the attention of everyone. He's everyone's pope, non-Catholics, even atheists." Yes, the devil does like to slip up and have people actually admit what is going on here - the man is certainly THAT but certainly NOT the pope of any remaining actual CATHOLICS that still hold the pre Vatican II Apostolic Faith.By the way, was anyone else as disheartened as I was about the video of the black young child who sang the Pie Jesu from Andrew Lloyd Webber's Requiem for Bergoglio, and then ran over to tell novus ordoite actor Mark Wahlberg that he "liked him" in the horrible movie Ted, the one where the stuffed teddy bear has sexual relations or lusts after human women. Aside from the general crudity and moral depravity, the film clearly would be promoting bestiality, which seems to be next on the agenda along with pedophilia for the new world order occultist/satanists that run our world. Anyway, Wahlberg, who appeared in the awful film, made note of it in front of Bergoglio and crowd, and Berg and prelates/clerics laugh about it, but at the end of the video the camera cut to the people in the front row and there was Jim Caviezel sitting with his wife, I imagine, chuckling over it as well - the same person who Mel Gibson had portray Our Lord in the Passion, and who was regularly attending the true mass while on the set of that film with Fr. Stephen Sommerville, who has since passed away. Guess the graces he got while making that film, like Teflon, didn't seem to stick.
More on the #s - apparently 80k-142k:"The deacons I saw coming back under the yellow and white Vatican Umbrellas had ciboria full of Hosts. I was about 15 people from the end of the Communion line in my section and the Deacon had about 5/6 of his ciborium still full. My sense having seen a number of these events is that the numbers are initially exaggerated and that if a million point five people did show up in Philly, the security at the scanning gates would have been more overwhelmed more than they were. Still the music, pomp, and the Papal presence made it an event of great prayer and witness.""We waited in line four hours on one of the main access routes and only made in for Communion. My wife received but the Minister ran out of hosts before I could receive. We were so far back in the sea of people (and there were thousands behind us) we couldn’t even get close enough to see the jumbotron of the Mass – let alone see the Pope. I’ve been to several of the March for Life events in DC (which typically attract upwards of 500,000); this was by far the largest crowd of people I’ve ever seen."http://www.praytellblog.com/index.php/2015/09/28/expert-papal-mass-numbers-were-largely-exaggerated/"Stock up on Communion wafers. Again, millions."http://www.cruxnow.com/church/2014/12/26/on-pope-visit-checklist-lots-of-communion-wafers/"The pontiff will celebrate mass in Philadelphia on Sunday before a gathering of up to 2 million people.

Love this pic of "STAR-STUDDED CONCERT PRIOR TO POPE FRANCIS’ MASS IN NEW YORK CITY" (performers and audience almost as old as 'pope'!)http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/09/25/star-studded-concert-prior-pope-francis-mass-new-york-city/
It's hard to know who wrote the script for this tv station, but seems Dolan's people had a (big managing) hand:2:20 "The Pope who Catholics pray for in every mass at every church (or arena or parkway)"2:54 "Inside a traditional Roman Catholic Mass but this one so special because of the man (!) celebrating it with (!) them"3:08 "pope's homily (!) in this big city arena turned sanctuary (the whole arena!)"3:24 "it was really just an uplifting experience seeing all - Catholics, non-Catholics alike - coming together" (really must view this creepy rehearsed priest's pedophile pet not sure whether he's planning to go into baby killing-politics or the sodomite-hood)Also interesting to note Dolan glad handing while Francis lays hands (blesses!) the sick "who need him the most" [no wonder constantly asking for prayers - neither are capable of prayer!] (2:07) At 3:39-42 makes his best effort at 'blessing (w/sign of the cross) the crowd (ha!)http://abc7ny.com/religion/pope-francis-celebrates-mass-at-madison-square-garden-/1001965/
