Cardinal Burke is sent to Guam. Fr Z goes to the Spinzone.

As you have all heard by now, the Pope found a job in Guam for Cardinal Burke.

The press immediately suggested the Pope thought Cardinal Burke is responsible for the crusades involving the poster and fake newspaper, so he sent Cardinal Burke to Guam to silence him and see if the shenanigans stopped.

Fr. Z responded with a post suggesting everyone calm down, this is a good thing.

I see where Fr Z is coming from.

He is thinking like a rational person:

Do the Romans suppose Church Militant is a Mickey Mouse operation being run out of Cardinal Burke's apartment and sending +Burke to Guam will stop us?! 

Moses supposes his toses are roses.  Moses supposes erroneously.  LOL.

I'd love to agree with Fr Z but I have way too many years of experience dealing with the antics of our episcopal leaders and their cronies.

Unfortunately, thinking sending Cardinal Burke to Guam will stop Church Militant is perfectly consistent with their modus operandi.

This is bishopthink.

When they are getting stung, they run out of their bunkers and kick the beehive.   And they do it for years before they come to terms with the fact that kicking the beehive makes the situation worse.  

Some of them eventually learn at the school of hard knocks, but some of them never learn.   Rome is filled to the rafters with the latter.

For a few days or weeks, the bees will give them the time to make them feel safe.  And then one morning, the Romans will wake up in their bunkers to an Alfred Hitchcock sound of swarming bees.

You think you have silenced us?   Watch this!

Another Bleephole at the Vatican Claims He is Answering for Pope

Fr. Z has details.

I'm blown away by the smoke of Satan being created in the Chair of Peter and fanned by the Holy Father's accomplices, while he is nowhere to be found at the scene of the crime.

Every time another Roman Blaggart steps into the spotlight I can't seem to stop myself from thinking the Pope just can't be a man.  He just can't stand on his own two feet and say "this is what that big pile of poo means".

I can't stand the sneakiness!

Pope says people who avoid violating some of the Commandments are cowards.

This incoherent rant is the worst yet:

– In another in a long stream of apparent attacks on his critics, Pope Francis gave a homily last week accusing Christians who avoid taking risks out of concern for the Ten Commandments as suffering from “cowardliness,” warning that such people become “paralyzed” and unable to “go forward.”

“‘Not taking risks, please, no... prudence...Obeying all the commandments, all of them...,'” the pope said, characterizing the thinking of such Christians. “Yes, it’s true, but this paralyzes you too, it makes you forget so many graces received, it takes away memory, it takes away hope, because it doesn’t allow you to go forward.”

Yeah, there is nothing like obeying all the commandments that robs one of the "hope" of moving forward with commiting sin.  

I've got such a nasty case of paralysis and amnesia, I don't ever remember learning about "the many graces that come with the seven deadly sins.

Here's where the Pope's thoughts really twist themselves into a pretzel:

...souls” who suffer from the sin of “cowardice,” the pope added. “And the presen[ce] of a Christian, of such a Christian, is like when one goes along the street and an unexpected rain comes, and the garment is not so good and the fabric shrinks...Confined souls...This is cowardliness: this is the sin against memory, courage, patience, and hope.”

Again, I just want to remind you this is a Pope saying people who don't break commandments are cowards who sin against memory, courage, patience and hope.

Forget about the theological madness, these thoughts do not gel enough to form any kind of rational thesis.  A pagan could not make sense out of it.

I've said this before, but this is a clearer example that the Pope seems to be ignorant of how the Properties of Divinity work when a soul is in a state of Sanctifying Grace.   He keeps inventing sinister conspiracy theories about where and why we draw the strength to prevent us from violating commandments.   And much more importantly, he sees the prevention of falling to temptation as something nefarious.

This situation is out to lunch as it gets.

The elevator is not going all the way to the top.

Both oars are not in the water.

The wheel is turning but the hamster is dead.

The nastiness of the dying political culture

Just saw a clip of Nancy Pelosi saying Gorsuch is against food, medicine for children and breathing clean air.

What a mean and nasty thing to say about a decent, loving and kind man.

The rhetoric they feed women with inferiority complexes to whip them into a frenzy doesn't even have to be credible.

Armed for demons

On Facebook this morning, Bishop Finn talked about today's Gospel she Jesus meets the possessed man.

ARMED FOR DEMONS – in today’s Gospel, (Mk 5:1-20) Jesus meets the possessed man. What can tame him? Chains and shackles: useless in restraining him. Could a clever apologist “reason him out” of his demonic disposition? Human wisdom does not repulse the juggernaut.
    “… Our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the principalities, the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.” (Eph 6:12); no one is invulnerable (Mt 16:23).
     In the supernatural battle, Jesus Christ repulses the demon. Sanctifying grace is the required disposition, prayer and penance, the ultimate weapons.

I've been thinking about this a bit lately because of what seems to me to be a few intractable situations that I've been praying about for what seems like way too long!

I'm pretty good about bombarding a situation with prayer.  Penance, not so much, and I could do a whole lot more with fasting from comforts.  I convince myself that I've had a full plate of suffering and sacrifice over the years and I  remind Christ to dig into that treasure chest because this girl has had enough and is indulging in this or that.

It's also been on my mind because of the upcoming Nineveh 90 Novena which starts on November on February 13th and ends on May 13th (the hundredth anniversary of The Apparition of Our Lady of Fatima).  The Novena is hard core, with various forms of fasting, lots of prayer, a consecration.   I confess to needing to modify it a bit (a modified fast on Wednesday and Fridays and the television is staying baby!  Can't do without movie classics!). but I'm jumping on board and hope TTC readers will also join at the link above.  We can be our own Nineveh 90 squad!

There is a never-ending list of things we can give up.  Here is some rocking theology on gossip.  (This is the stuff we are missing in the Novus Ordo.  Listen and weep!)

Read it over and modify to what is healthy but at the same time sacrifice and penance.  Big things on the horizon over the next few months.  Let's turn up the heat.

The Antimary

Some great insight on the vulgar culture women have let themselves get sucked into.

What, then, would an antimary movement look like, exactly? Well, these women would not value children. They would be bawdy, vulgar, and angry. They would rage against the idea of anything resembling humble obedience or self-sacrifice for others. They would be petulant, shallow, catty, and overly sensuous. They would also be self-absorbed, manipulative, gossipy, anxious, and ambitious. In short, it would be everything that Mary is not.  

I watched the viciousness displayed by women dressed up  as genitalia and felt sorry for a generation robbed of the treasures of serving  Christ through sacrificial loving.  They bought the tome of drugged up Hollywood elites selling them becoming a putana, low-self esteem and hating on men and children is freedom.   A circus of demonic action other if there ever was one.

Pope takes giant leap as an enemy of faithful practice of Catholicism

Yuge news over the last 24 hours in the Church.

Remember the mess in Knights of Malta wherein the Grand Chancellor was terminated for his oversight of 25 years of condom distribution, the Pope took up the cause to have him reinstated and the Grand Master told the Pope he had no authority over the Knights of Malta?

After a meeting with the Pope, the Grand Master resigned and the Grand Condom Distributer was reinstated as Grand Chancellor  with all decisions taken post December 5th revoked.  The Pope will appoint Grand Commander pending the appointment of a papal delegate.

I'll leave the canonical explanation to the Canon lawyers, but I believe this is a seizure of the Knights of Malta by the Pope.    It's an extraordinary exercise of thuggery, which under the circumstances appears to be an abuse of the authority of the Chair of Peter.

Now that the pope has taken over the order, the legal questions mount.

Take, for example, the Vatican statement announcing the developments: It said the pope had "accepted" Festing's resignation, although under the order's own legal code the pope has no role whatsoever in accepting or rejecting resignations of grand masters. "It's not for the Holy Father to accept the resignation of the Grand Master, it's for the sovereign council to accept it," noted Kurt Martens, a professor of canon law at the Catholic University of America.

As if to drive home that point, the Knights issued a statement Wednesday saying the sovereign council would meet Jan. 28 to formally accept the resignation. In theory, the sovereign council could also reject it.

Because the Pope's role supports an individual who contradicts Church teaching and spent 25 years robbing people of salvation, it is impossible to say the hostile takeover is about the salvation of souls. 

So what is it about?

As I've mentioned before there is an awful lot of money in the wallets of the Knights of Malta.  Could it be about the oxygen ($$$) of bishops?

Maybe.  Time will tell.

Is it about breaking down the orthodoxy of Church teaching by surrounding members with heretics, like he is doing with everything else?

Hard to exclude that possibility.

Is the Pope engaging in a pissing contest with Cardinal Burke at the expense of the salvation of souls?

I think we can take that to the bank.

But again, the Pope seems to be suffering from the delusion that Catholics devoted to the mission of salvation will kick Christ to the curb at his requests to be loyal to his proposed disobedience.

He and his cronies have no doubt crawled over a lot of craven bodies on his way to the top.  But they are underestimating Church Militant and that surprises me.

Keep underestimating us.  That will be fun.

More on this over the next few days, but there is a 90 day intense novena starting February 13th, Nineveh 90.

A word to the wise Romans:  The last novena brought our beaten people the Trump presidency.  Hope you are watching, reading executive orders and keeping up with House and Senate.  Tune into the Sean Slicer show every day for the readers digest and watch the heads spinning.

You are next!

The Holy Father has ended his charade of "stealth"

Fr Longenecker has an article at CRUX in which he wonders out loud whether the the Holy Father's Amoris Laetitia circus and monkeys are executing heresy by stealth.

I think it's safe to say, what is now an indisputable execution of an attempted decapitation of the Head of Christ, the Deposit of Faith from our people is anything but stealth.

One of the things they drill into seminarians is upon a new assignment in a parish or apostolate, the only thing you change in the first year is your underpants.

Looking back upon this papacy, this is a perfect description of its beginning.  There was a time when the Pope's agenda was stealth but the man is completely out of the closet now!

The main problem with the “change by stealth” approach has already become apparent. Because Amoris Laetitia remains ambiguous, different bishops will issue contradictory guidelines. Their attempts to clarify the pope’s teaching will therefore only cause more confusion and contradiction.

Worst of all, the priests and people will find themselves picking and choosing which pastoral guidelines they prefer. “Shall I listen to Chaput or Scicluna?”

He is fracturing every bone in the Mystical Body of Christ in the hope for this outcome.

What is stealth about this?

Our job is to stand in the public square and say "I see what you are doing and God sees it too."

When tomorrow comes.

When tomorrow comes!

Vatican starts excommunicated apostate series of postage stamps

First stamp will be Martin Luther.

Sources say they've got Henry VIII and Elizabeth Taylor in the queue for the Amoris Laetitia Marriage and the Eucharist Commemoration Stamps. 

The putana stamps will be released on Fat Tuesday.

Rome has fallen to the dogs.
