Sunday Devotional: Hell is real

Matthew 13:34-43

All these things Jesus spoke to the crowds in parables.
He spoke to them only in parables,
to fulfill what had been said through the prophet:
I will open my mouth in parables,
I will announce what has lain hidden from the foundation
of the world.

Then, dismissing the crowds, he went into the house.
His disciples approached him and said,
“Explain to us the parable of the weeds in the field.”
He said in reply, “He who sows good seed is the Son of Man,
the field is the world, the good seed the children of the kingdom.
The weeds are the children of the evil one,
and the enemy who sows them is the devil.
The harvest is the end of the age, and the harvesters are angels.
Just as weeds are collected and burned up with fire,
so will it be at the end of the age.
The Son of Man will send his angels,
and they will collect out of his kingdom
all who cause others to sin and all evildoers.
They will throw them into the fiery furnace,
where there will be wailing and grinding of teeth.
Then the righteous will shine like the sun
in the kingdom of their Father.
Whoever has ears ought to hear.”

Did you know that Jesus preached three times more about Hell than Heaven?

And yet a 2009 survey by the Pew Forum on Religion and Public Life found that only 59% of Americans believed in hell, compared with 74% who believed in heaven. That same year, a Barna poll found that 6 out of 10 American Christians did not believe that Satan is real.

Among Christians who appear to not believe in Hell is none other than Pope Francis.

According to his longtime atheist friend, Eugenio Scalfari, Pope Francis in an interview that was published March 28, 2018 in La Repubblica, said that Hell does not exist and that condemned souls just “disappear.” This, of course, is a denial of the 2,000-year-old teaching of the Catholic Church about the reality of Hell and the eternal existence of the soul.

After Scalfari’s report garnered worldwide attention, the next day the Vatican issued this equivocating statement, which is not an outright denial (source: CNS News):

“The Holy Father Francis recently received the founder of the newspaper La Repubblica in a private meeting on the occasion of Easter, without however giving him any interviews. What is reported by the author in today’s article [in La Repubblica] is the result of his reconstruction, in which the textual words pronounced by the Pope are not quoted. No quotation of the aforementioned article must therefore be considered as a faithful transcription of the words of the Holy Father.”

Those who don’t believe in Hell not only ignore Jesus’ own words, the French philosopher-mathematician-physicist Blaise Pascal (1623-1662) would say unbelievers are making a dangerous bet or wager.

In his post-humously published Pensées (Thoughts), Pascal set forth what became known as Pascal’s Wager — a cost-benefit argument for believing in God. Pascal argued that a rational person should live as though God exists and seek to believe in God. If God does not actually exist, such a person will have only a finite loss (giving up some pleasures in life), whereas if God does exist, he stands to receive infinite gains (eternity in Heaven) and avoid infinite losses (eternity in Hell).

There is another cost-benefit reason for the belief in Hell. A study in 2012 found that societies with a strong belief in Hell have lower crime-rates.

Then there are fools who believe Hell is real, but actually choose Hell.

These fools have convinced themselves that, like Lucifer in John Milton’s Paradise Lost, it is “Better to reign in Hell, than to serve in Heaven”, only to discover that “Which way I fly is hell; myself am hell.” See:

Sunday Devotional: ‘whoever eats this bread will live forever’

John 6:51-58

Jesus said to the Jewish crowds:
“I am the living bread that came down from heaven;
whoever eats this bread will live forever;
and the bread that I will give
is my flesh for the life of the world.”

The Jews quarreled among themselves, saying,
“How can this man give us his flesh to eat?”
Jesus said to them,
“Amen, amen, I say to you,
unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink his blood,
you do not have life within you.
Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood
has eternal life,
and I will raise him on the last day.
For my flesh is true food,
and my blood is true drink.
Whoever eats my flesh and drinks my blood
remains in me and I in him.
Just as the living Father sent me
and I have life because of the Father,
so also the one who feeds on me
will have life because of me.
This is the bread that came down from heaven.
Unlike your ancestors who ate and still died,
whoever eats this bread will live forever.”

Today is the Feast of Corpus Christi, when we remember and celebrate the new Covenant that our Lord made with His Body and Blood, with all who believe in Him.

1 Corinthians 11:23-25

[T]he Lord Jesus, on the night he was handed over,
took bread, and, after he had given thanks,
broke it and said, “This is my body that is for you.
Do this in remembrance of me.”
In the same way also the cup, after supper, saying,
“This cup is the new covenant in my blood.
Do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of me.”

Three Sundays ago, the universal Church remembered our Lord Jesus Christ’s Ascension, when He left this mortal world, not to return until the End Days. In leaving, our Lord bade a last farewell to His faithful disciples and, knowing full well how bereft they would be, He made sure we are not abandoned — that although “the world will not see me anymore . . . I will not leave you as orphans” (John 14:19, 18).

Jesus made two promises to ensure we would not be left “as orphans”:

(1) The Father will send the Holy Spirit, the Third Person of the Triune Godhead:

“And I will ask the Father,
and He will give you another advocate
to help you and be with you forever —
the Spirit of truth.
The world cannot accept Him,
because it neither sees Him nor knows Him.
But you know Him,
for He lives with you
and will be in you.” (John 14:16-17)

(2) We will have His Body and Blood:

“I will not leave you as orphans;
I will come to you.” (John 14:18)

How thoughtful and loving our Lord is!

Our Lord said: “This is my body that is for you.”

Do we doubt His words?

Have you heard of the Lanciano Eucharistic miracle?

18 years ago, knowing that her degenerative spine disease and severe osteoarthritis may someday lead to paralysis, I took FOTM‘s Joan on a pilgrimage to Italy.

Among the places we visited were the Sanctuary of St. Michael the Archangel in Mount Gargano and the Church of San Francesco in Lanciano. In the latter was a glass case containing a brownish substance.

Church of San Francesco, Lanciano, aka Shrine of the Eucharistic Miracle

As described by TheRealPresence.org, during the middle of the eighth century, a Basilian monk doubted the Real Presence in the Eucharist — that at consecration, bread and wine become Christ’s true body and true blood.

The doubting monk was celebrating Mass one day. As he intoned the words of consecration, “suddenly the monk saw bread turn into Flesh and the wine into Blood,” according to documents at the Sanctuary of the Eucharistic Miracle in Lanciano, Italy.

Today, more than 12 centuries after the Lanciano miracle, the transformed host and wine are preserved still, despite being exposed to atmospheric and biological agents:

  • The Host-Flesh is light brown and appears rose-colored when lit from the back.
  • The Blood is coagulated into five globules, irregular and differing in shape and size, of an earthy color resembling the yellow of ochre.

Scientific investigations of Lanciano were conducted since 1575, most notably in 1970-’71 and taken up again partly in 1981, by Dr. Odoardo Linoli, head of the clinical analysis laboratory and of pathological anatomy at Arezzo Hospital, and Dr. Ruggero Bertelli, professor of anatomy at the University of Siena.

Linoli and Bertelli came to the following conclusions:

  • The flesh is real human flesh, the blood is real human blood.
  • The flesh is heart tissue — of the myocardium, the endocardium, the vagus nerve and the left cardiac ventricle.
  • The flesh and blood have the blood-type AB, which is the same blood-type found on the Shroud of Turin and the Sudarium or Oviedo Cloth — the piece of cloth that is believed to have covered Jesus’ head after the crucifixion.
  • In the blood were found proteins in the same normal proportions (percentage-wise) as are found in the sero-proteic make-up of fresh human blood, as well as the minerals chloride, phosphorus, magnesium, potassium, sodium and calcium.

According to “The True Presence,” in 1973, the UN World Health Organization’s board of governors appointed a scientific commission to investigate Lanciano. After 500 examinations, the scientists verified the 1971 findings and declared the tissue to be human.

There have been other Eucharistic miracles elsewhere since Lanciano. See here, here, and especially the website “The Eucharistic Miracles of the World” that was the work of a devout Italian boy named Carlo Acutis before he died from a brain tumor in 2006 at the tender age of 15.

To conclude, Christ is with us through His Body and Blood and in the Holy Spirit, which makes it all the more terrible and reprehensible that state governments, ostensibly to “contain” the COVID-19 “pandemic,” have barred Catholics and other Christians from attending church service, including the receiving of the Holy Eucharist, which is life itself.

Tell our Lord your troubles and fears.

And tell Him, often and always, that you love Him with your whole heart, your whole soul, your whole mind, and with all your strength.

Jesus, I love You. ❤️

May the peace and love of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you,

Former Vatican ambassador to the United States Endorses President Trump

‘I Bless You’ in ‘Biblical’ Battle Against the ‘Deep State,’ the ‘Children of Darkness’

By Michael W. Chapman | June 8, 2020 | 10:30am EDT

(CNS News) — Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, the former apostolic nuncio (Vatican ambassador) to the United States, released a public letter to President Donald Trump on Sunday in which he said there is a Biblical battle going on in the United States between “the children of light and the children of darkness,” i.e., the followers of Christ vs. the the followers of the “invisible enemy,” the Devil.

“And it appears that the children of darkness — whom we may easily identify with the deep state which you wisely oppose and which is fiercely waging war against you in these days — have decided to show their cards, so to speak, by now revealing their plans,” said the archbishop, who resides in Europe.

The entire letter is published below:

June 7, 2020 – Holy Trinity Sunday

Mr. President,

In recent months we have been witnessing the formation of two opposing sides that I would call Biblical: the children of light and the children of darkness. The children of light constitute the most conspicuous part of humanity, while the children of darkness represent an absolute minority. And yet the former are the object of a sort of discrimination which places them in a situation of moral inferiority with respect to their adversaries, who often hold strategic positions in government, in politics, in the economy and in the media. In an apparently inexplicable way, the good are held hostage by the wicked and by those who help them either out of self-interest or fearfulness.

These two sides, which have a Biblical nature, follow the clear separation between the offspring of the Woman and the offspring of the Serpent. On the one hand there are those who, although they have a thousand defects and weaknesses, are motivated by the desire to do good, to be honest, to raise a family, to engage in work, to give prosperity to their homeland, to help the needy, and, in obedience to the Law of God, to merit the Kingdom of Heaven. On the other hand, there are those who serve themselves, who do not hold any moral principles, who want to demolish the family and the nation, exploit workers to make themselves unduly wealthy, foment internal divisions and wars, and accumulate power and money: for them the fallacious illusion of temporal well-being will one day – if they do not repent – yield to the terrible fate that awaits them, far from God, in eternal damnation.

In society, Mr. President, these two opposing realities co-exist as eternal enemies, just as God and Satan are eternal enemies. And it appears that the children of darkness – whom we may easily identify with the deep state which you wisely oppose and which is fiercely waging war against you in these days – have decided to show their cards, so to speak, by now revealing their plans. They seem to be so certain of already having everything under control that they have laid aside that circumspection that until now had at least partially concealed their true intentions. The investigations already under way will reveal the true responsibility of those who managed the Covid emergency not only in the area of health care but also in politics, the economy, and the media. We will probably find that in this colossal operation of social engineering there are people who have decided the fate of humanity, arrogating to themselves the right to act against the will of citizens and their representatives in the governments of nations.

We will also discover that the riots in these days were provoked by those who, seeing that the virus is inevitably fading and that the social alarm of the pandemic is waning, necessarily have had to provoke civil disturbances, because they would be followed by repression which, although legitimate, could be condemned as an unjustified aggression against the population. The same thing is also happening in Europe, in perfect synchrony. It is quite clear that the use of street protests is instrumental to the purposes of those who would like to see someone elected in the upcoming presidential elections who embodies the goals of the deep state and who expresses those goals faithfully and with conviction. It will not be surprising if, in a few months, we learn once again that hidden behind these acts of vandalism and violence there are those who hope to profit from the dissolution of the social order so as to build a world without freedom: Solve et Coagula, as the Masonic adage teaches.

Although it may seem disconcerting, the opposing alignments I have described are also found in religious circles. There are faithful Shepherds who care for the flock of Christ, but there are also mercenary infidels who seek to scatter the flock and hand the sheep over to be devoured by ravenous wolves. It is not surprising that these mercenaries are allies of the children of darkness and hate the children of light: just as there is a deep state, there is also a deep church that betrays its duties and forswears its proper commitments before God. Thus the Invisible Enemy, whom good rulers fight against in public affairs, is also fought against by good shepherds in the ecclesiastical sphere. It is a spiritual battle, which I spoke about in my recent Appeal which was published on May 8.

For the first time, the United States has in you a President who courageously defends the right to life, who is not ashamed to denounce the persecution of Christians throughout the world, who speaks of Jesus Christ and the right of citizens to freedom of worship. Your participation in the March for Life, and more recently your proclamation of the month of April as National Child Abuse Prevention Month, are actions that confirm which side you wish to fight on. And I dare to believe that both of us are on the same side in this battle, albeit with different weapons.

For this reason, I believe that the attack to which you were subjected after your visit to the National Shrine of Saint John Paul II is part of the orchestrated media narrative which seeks not to fight racism and bring social order, but to aggravate dispositions; not to bring justice, but to legitimize violence and crime; not to serve the truth, but to favor one political faction. And it is disconcerting that there are Bishops – such as those whom I recently denounced – who, by their words, prove that they are aligned on the opposing side. They are subservient to the deep state, to globalism, to aligned thought, to the New World Order which they invoke ever more frequently in the name of a universal brotherhood which has nothing Christian about it, but which evokes the Masonic ideals of those want to dominate the world by driving God out of the courts, out of schools, out of families, and perhaps even out of churches.

The American people are mature and have now understood how much the mainstream media does not want to spread the truth but seeks to silence and distort it, spreading the lie that is useful for the purposes of their masters. However, it is important that the good – who are the majority – wake up from their sluggishness and do not accept being deceived by a minority of dishonest people with unavowable purposes. It is necessary that the good, the children of light, come together and make their voices heard. What more effective way is there to do this, Mr. President, than by prayer, asking the Lord to protect you, the United States, and all of humanity from this enormous attack of the Enemy? Before the power of prayer, the deceptions of the children of darkness will collapse, their plots will be revealed, their betrayal will be shown, their frightening power will end in nothing, brought to light and exposed for what it is: an infernal deception.

Mr. President, my prayer is constantly turned to the beloved American nation, where I had the privilege and honor of being sent by Pope Benedict XVI as Apostolic Nuncio. In this dramatic and decisive hour for all of humanity, I am praying for you and also for all those who are at your side in the government of the United States. I trust that the American people are united with me and you in prayer to Almighty God.

United against the Invisible Enemy of all humanity, I bless you and the First Lady, the beloved American nation, and all men and women of good will.

Titular Archbishop of Ulpiana
Former Apostolic Nuncio to the United States of America


PEACE

Why does Melinda Gates wear an upside-down cross?

Melinda Gates, 55, is the wife of Microsoft co-founder and its former chairman, CEO, and president Bill Gates, 64. A former general manager herself at Microsoft, Melinda and Bill in 2000 co-founded the powerful Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the world’s largest private charitable organization as of 2015. Melinda has consistently been ranked as one of the world’s most powerful women by Forbes.

The Gates are Democrats. Both were suggested as possible vice-presidential picks in the 2016 presidential election, according to an email from Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, John Podesta, which was obtained and published by WikiLeaks. (Time)

Melinda Gates is also a Roman Catholic. In 2014, Bill told Rolling Stone magazine that he and Melinda raised their three children as Catholics, the family goes to a Catholic church, and that religious morality inspires a lot of his charity work.

Melinda Gates’ Catholicism goes against the Gates Foundation’s funding, until 2013, of abortion by donating $71 million to Planned Parenthood and affiliated organizations. In 2014, she said that the foundation “has decided not to fund abortion”, focusing instead on family planning and contraception in order to avoid conflation of abortion and family planning. (Wikipedia)

Then there is the matter of Melinda’s jewelry.

Longtime FOTM reader/commenter Lola sent me this pic of Melinda Gates wearing a necklace with a pendant that’s an upside-down cross.

The pic is a screenshot taken from a video of Melinda’s appearance on an NBC “Today” show on May 8, 2020:

The upside-down or inverted cross is a symbol that stems from the martyrdom of St. Peter the Apsotle. Catholic tradition is that when the Romans sentenced Peter to death by crucifixion, he requested that his cross be upside down, as he felt unworthy of being crucified in the same manner as his Lord and savior Jesus Christ. That is why there are images of the Pope wearing the inverted or Petrine Cross because the Pope is the successor of St. Peter as Bishop of Rome.

However, in our times, the upside-down cross has been co-opted by satanists to mock Christ’s crucifixion, just as the Black Mass is an inverted mockery of the Catholic Mass.

So the question is: Given the upside-down cross having become a satanic symbol, why would Melinda Gates, a self-professed Catholic, wear that as jewelry? Why not a regular, rightside-up cross instead?

There’s also something else that’s disturbing about Melinda’s appearance.

Twitterer @Inevitable_ET posted comparison pics of Bill and Melinda, past and present, which show Melinda looking very different from what she was before. She now has a bigger and fatter nose, which can’t be from weight gain. She also looks like a man in drag.

Sunday Devotional: I am the gate

John 10:7-10

So Jesus said again, “Amen, amen, I say to you,
I am the gate for the sheep.
All who came before me are thieves and robbers,
but the sheep did not listen to them.
I am the gate.
Whoever enters through me will be saved,
and will come in and go out and find pasture.
A thief comes only to steal and slaughter and destroy;
I came so that they might have life and have it more abundantly.”

In John 10:7-10 and in John 14:6, Jesus made clear that He is “the gate” and “the way” to the Father:

“No one comes to the Father except through me.”

In so doing, Jesus made clear not only His divinity, but also drew a clear line of demarcation from Judaism — that the church He founded is the one true Church, whereas rabbis and leaders of other religions are false shepherds (“thief” and “robber”) who can only lead the people (“sheep”) astray.

As recounted in John 10:1-6, an astonishing passage in its boldness and implications:

Jesus said:
“Amen, amen, I say to you,
whoever does not enter a sheepfold through the gate
but climbs over elsewhere is a thief and a robber.
But whoever enters through the gate is the shepherd of the sheep.
The gatekeeper opens it for him, and the sheep hear his voice,
as the shepherd calls his own sheep by name and leads them out.
When he has driven out all his own,
he walks ahead of them, and the sheep follow him,
because they recognize his voice.
But they will not follow a stranger;
they will run away from him,
because they do not recognize the voice of strangers.”
Although Jesus used this figure of speech,
the Pharisees did not realize what he was trying to tell them.

And this is precisely why although Jesus, in the words of 1 Peter 2:22, “committed no sin, and no deceit was found in his mouth,” and although Pontius Pilate had found Jesus not guilty, the Pharisees and other Jewish leaders insisted that Jesus be put to death by the Romans’ most extreme form of execution, reserved only for the worst criminals (John 19: 6-7):

“Crucify him! Crucify him!
…because he called himself the Son of God.”

1 Peter 2:23-25

When he was insulted, he returned no insult;
when he suffered, he did not threaten;
instead, he handed himself over to the one who judges justly.
He himself bore our sins in his body upon the cross,
so that, free from sin, we might live for righteousness.
By his wounds you have been healed.
For you had gone astray like sheep,
but you have now returned to the shepherd and guardian of your souls.

May the peace and love of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you,

Sunday Devotional: Night is coming

John 9:4-5; 8:12

Night is coming when no one can work.
While I am in the world, I am the light of the world.
I am the light of the world, says the Lord;
whoever follows me will have the light of life.

“Night is coming when no one can work….”

What a prophetic and apt description of the terrible times in which we find ourselves, gripped by panic and fear of a new virus pandemic that has shut down entire cities, states and countries, rendering countless millions jobless, plunging stock markets and economies into utter chaos.

And the antidote?

It is Christ our Lord.

Always.

Psalm 23:1-4

The LORD is my shepherd;
there is nothing I lack.
In green pastures he makes me lie down;
to still waters he leads me;
he restores my soul.
He guides me along right paths
for the sake of his name.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil, for you are with me;
your rod and your staff comfort me.

And the best way to overcome the night is for each of us to be a light to the world.

Be kind. Be cheerful.

Help those who are suffering and in need.

Be a light in the darkness.

Ephesians 5:8-14

Brothers and sisters:
You were once darkness,
but now you are light in the Lord.
Live as children of light,
for light produces every kind of goodness
and righteousness and truth.
Try to learn what is pleasing to the Lord.
Take no part in the fruitless works of darkness;
rather expose them, for it is shameful even to mention
the things done by them in secret;
but everything exposed by the light becomes visible,
for everything that becomes visible is light…
and Christ will give you light.

In many cities and states, there are no public Masses because of “shelter in place” quasi-martial law. But you can still celebrate the Holy Mass online:

May the peace and love of Jesus Christ our Lord be with you,

Valentine’s Day and the meaning of true love

Today is Valentine’s Day — the day when TV commercials nag men to buy roses, candy, and jewelry for their wives or girl friends.

But did you know that the day is named after a real person, St. Valentine?

At least three different Saint Valentines, all of them martyrs, are mentioned in the early martyrologies under the date of February 14th. But the man for whom Valentine’s Day is named most likely was a priest at Rome who, in the second half of the 3rd century, was arrested and killed by the Emperor Claudius for secretly marrying Christian couples during a time of persecution in the Church. Legend has it that while he was imprisoned and waiting for his martyrdom, he sent letters to his fellow Christians signing them, “From Your Valentine.” (See joandarc’s post, “St. Valentine“)

The popular customs associated with Valentine’s Day probably came from a conventional belief in England and France during the Middle Ages, that on 14 February, i.e. half way through the second month of the year, the birds began to pair. Thus in Chaucer’s Parliament of Foules we read:

For this was sent on Seynt Valentyne’s day
Whan every foul cometh ther to choose his mate.

For this reason the day was looked upon as specially consecrated to lovers and as a proper occasion for writing love letters and sending lovers’ tokens. [Source: Catholic Encyclopedia]

So what is love?

I can find no better definition and description of true love than the words of St. Paul:

1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Love is patient, love is kind.
It is not jealous, it is not pompous,
It is not inflated, it is not rude,
it does not seek its own interests,
it is not quick-tempered,
it does not brood over injury,

it does not rejoice over wrongdoing
but rejoices with the truth.
It bears all things, believes all things,
hopes all things, endures all things.

And here’s the true meaning of Valentine’s Day:

The Greatest Commandment of all is to love God with your whole heart, your whole mind, your whole soul, and with all your strength; and to love your neighbor as you love yourself.

May the love of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you today!

Catholic website calls anyone who questions military intervention to oust Pope Francis ‘out of line’

Three days ago on January 25, I published a post on a poll on a traditional Catholic website, From Rome, on whether there should be a military intervention at the Vatican to oust Pope Francis (real name Jorge Bergoglio) and restore 92-year-old Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI to the papacy.

From Rome‘s editor is a Franciscan monk, Br. Alexis Bugnolo.

I explained that the poll was prompted by frustration about Pope Francis and the conviction that Benedict XVI had not “really” resigned as pope, but only from the active ministry as pope — which, of course, is exactly what the title “Pope Emeritus” means, just as the title “Professor Emeritus” refers to a professor who has retired from teaching at his/her university (“emeritus”), but nevertheless retains the title “professor”.

About the poll, a From Rome reader StMA posted this comment:

Which military does From Rome imagine would “intervene” at the Vatican to oust fake pope Bergoglio? If the Church’s clergy — from cardinals to priests — would do their job, no military intervention would be needed.

To which From Rome responded defensively and disingenuously:

“We do not imagine anything. We are just taking a poll.”

Today, From Rome published the final results of the poll, crowing that “Catholics overwhelmingly support military intervention at the Vatican”.

From the post:

The Poll Results are in, and they speak for themselves:

The same reader posted a comment about the results of the poll:

Once again, I must ask this blog and its 159 readers who voted “Yes” in this poll:

Which country/government do you imagine would risk the lives of their soldiers to launch a military intervention against the Vatican, a sovereign state, when this is a matter solely for the Catholic Church to resolve?

From Rome responded by calling the commenter “out of line”:

The Catholic Faithful have appealed to Kings and princes hundreds of times throughout the Centuries to clean up the Church by means of military intervention, whether or at Rome or elsewhere. It is their God given right to appeal to Christ the King, either through their superiors in the Church or through their superiors in the Temporal Powers, since Christ is Lord of them both. So you [sic] comment is way out of line. — As for risking the lives of their soldiers, you got to be kidding…

The dictionary defines “out of line” as:

Not in agreement or accordance with generally accepted or established limits.

Contrary to or in violation of acceptable rules, conventions, or standards; improper or inappropriate.

One wonders what rule, convention, or standard reader StMA had violated?

Also, by asserting “The Catholic Faithful have appealed to Kings and princes hundreds of times throughout the Centuries to clean up the Church by means of military intervention, whether or at Rome or elsewhere” in its dismissive and abusive response to the reader, From Rome‘s editor in effect belies his previous disingenuous denial that he was not advocating a military intervention but “just taking a poll.”

Frankly, From Rome‘s speech and behavior do no credit to the cause of traditional Catholics who are, with good reasons, unhappy with Pope Francis.

I now repeat what I had written in the January 25 post:

As an American, I do not want a U.S. military intervention at the Vatican for any reason. And if the U.S. were to intervene and oust Jorge Bergoglio from the papacy, then what? Should the U.S. military occupy Vatican City until Benedict XVI is restored to St. Peter’s? Benedict is 92 years old and frail. Should the U.S. military then force a papal conclave to elect a new pope? And if another Bergoglio is elected, then what?

The Catholic Church’s cardinals created this mess. The Catholic Church, and no one else, should resolve their own problems.

Traditional Catholic website wants military intervention to oust Pope Francis

On February 11, 2013, Pope Benedict XVI shocked the world when he resigned as “Bishop of Rome, Successor of Saint Peter”. In a brief statement in Latin announcing his resignation, he cited his deteriorating strength and the physical and mental demands of the papacy, but declared that he would continue to serve the church “through a life dedicated to prayer”. In so doing, he became the first pope in 600 years to retire rather than die in office

After two weeks of ceremonial farewells, the Pope left office at the appointed time. A month later, on March 13, 2013, the papal conclave elected an Argentinian cardinal, Jorge Bergoglio, to be pope. Meanwhile, in retirement Benedict retained his papal name rather than revert to his birth name, Joseph Ratizinger. And so the Catholic Church found itself in the unprecedented situation of having two popes: Pope Francis and Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI. 

Ever since his resignation, there are persistent whispers that Benedict’s resignation had been coerced and that he is imprisoned “in a certain sort of way,”  with fingers pointing to a shadowy cabal of high-ranking leftist homosexual clerics dubbed the St. Gallen Mafia.

See also “The Illegitimate Pope: Election of Jorge Bergoglio as Pope Francis was contaminated by lobbying in violation of papal laws

But on the eve of the first anniversary of his resignation, in a letter to a Vatican correspondent of La Stampa newspaper, Benedict denied he had been forced to step down:

“There isn’t the slightest doubt about the validity of my resignation from the Petrine ministry. The only condition for the validity is the full freedom of the decision. Speculation about its invalidity is simply absurd.”

About the video: Pope Francis angrily slaps hand of woman who said ‘Help me!’

Notwithstanding Benedict’s denial, Catholics unhappy with Pope Francis continue to insist that Benedict XVI had been coerced to resign. Some say that in his statement of resignation, Benedict never said he was resigning from the papacy, but merely that he was resigning from the ministry, that is, the active exercise of being a pope.

Note: But doesn’t the title “Pope Emeritus” mean precisely that? — that Benedict retains the title of “Pope” but is retired and no longer active as pope, thus “Emeritus”. Just as the title “Professor Emeritus” refers to a professor who has retired from his/her university (emeritus), but nevertheless retains the title “professor”.

Increasingly frustrated by Pope Francis’ speech and behavior, some traditional Catholics are becoming unglued, notably the traditional Catholic website From Rome.

On January 18, 2020, From Rome initiated a WhiteHouse.gov petition asking President Trump issue a tweet that he’s “concerned” about Pope Benedict XVI:

“I am concerned for the welfare of all the elderly and that they not be abused or manipulated, including Pope Benedict XVI. I urge all to take effective steps for their care!”

The petition requires 100,000 signatures for the White House to act. A week after the petition was begun, only 579 people have signed.

From Rome‘s latest act of desperation is a poll on whether there should be a military intervention at the Vatican.

On January 19, 2020, a day after the petition to the White House, From Rome published a poll asking its readers if an armed intervention is needed to restore Benedict XVI as pope:

In view of the Massive public interest in the welfare of Pope Benedict, the growing and soon to explode public consensus that He is still the true and only Pope and that Bergoglio is an uncanonical anomaly, From Rome wants to take the pulse of Christendom with a poll asking a very very impolitic question. Please share this on all social media, so we can get the best response:

As of this morning, here are the poll results:

A reader commented:

“Which military does From Rome imagine would ‘intervene’ at the Vatican to oust fake pope Bergoglio? If the Church’s clergy — from cardinals to priests — would do their job, no military intervention would be needed.”

To which From Rome responded defensively and disingenuously:

“We do not imagine anything. We are just taking a poll.”

After which, the website posted this disclaimer:

Disclaimer: The taking of this poll in no way implies any action, support or condoning of private military or armed action against the Vatican City State or anyone in its territories. It is merely a journalistic appeal to know what people are thinking and how strongly they feel it. Whether the USA or an Italian government in the future might take this action or not, is neither foreseen nor solicited by FromRome.info

As an American, I do not want a U.S. military intervention at the Vatican for any reason. And if the U.S. were to intervene and oust Jorge Bergoglio from the papacy, then what? Should the U.S. military occupy Vatican City until Benedict XVI is restored to St. Peter’s? Benedict is 92 years old and frail. Should the U.S. military then force a papal conclave to elect a new pope? And if another Bergoglio is elected, then what?

The Catholic Church’s cardinals created this mess. The Catholic Church, and no one else, should resolve their own problems.
