For the moment, however, I want to focus on the multiple ways in which the true God of Divine Revelation, the Most Blessed Trinity, was offended three days ago and, of course, at the absolutely abhorrent “national prayer service” at so-called “Washington National Cathedral” on Saturday, January 21, 2017, the Feast of Saint Agnes. These offenses are far, far more important than the new president’s “take no prisoners” inaugural address, which, of course, made no reference whatsoever to the One Who is the King of all men and all nations, Christ the King, the very Co-Eternal Word Who was made Incarnate in the Virginal and Immaculate Womb of His Most Blessed Mother by the power of the Third Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, God the Holy Ghost, at the Annunciation.
This should not be in the least bit surprising as the United States of America is itself the product of complete indifference about the fact of the Incarnation and thus of the Holy Name of Jesus, and it has been the case since the first president, George Washington, took the oath of office on April 1, 1789, in the City of New York, New York, that no president of the United States of America has ever invoked the Holy Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ in an inaugural address.
Ah, you doubt my word?
Please review the facts provided in Not A Mention of Christ the King., which, I think, should be updated and put out on a pamphlet. Gee, I will try to do add this to a “to-do list” of such projects that may remain unfinished for quite a while!
Anyhow, readers of this site know that the errrors of “religious liberty” and “freedom of speech” that have been nurtured in the United State of America have made this country a haven for every error imaginable., which is why the spectacle at the Protestant temple of the devil called the Washington National Cathedral on Saturday, January 21, 2017, was just another example of the Americanist heresy at work. Although a specific article on that travesty, which could just as easily have been a conciliar production as its cast of characters came from the same sort of idol-worshipping and heretical sects featured in the infamous Assisi events” (see, for example, Outcome Based Conciliar Math: Assisi I + Assisi II + Assisi III = A-P-O-S-T-A-S-Y.)
Perhaps the easiest way to deal the “prayer service” at the Washington National Cathedral on Saturday, January 21, 2017, is to review the “prayer” offered by some kind of Navajo idolater, who kept talking about “beauty” (perhaps “Beauty” is a sibling of “Fortune,” a famous canary to those familiar with a certain fictional bus driver from Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, and his belief that he had inherited a deceased passenger’s “fortune,” which turned out to be a canard) as follows:
In beauty I walk. With beauty before me I walk. With beauty behind me I walk. With beauty above me I walk. With beauty around me I walk. It has become beauty again. It has become beauty again. It has become beauty again. It has become beauty again.
7 Hózhó (Walking in Beauty) Today I will walk out; today everything unnecessary will leave me; I will be as I was before; I will have a cool breeze over my body. I will have a light body; I will be happy forever; nothing will hinder me. I walk with beauty before me. I walk with beauty behind me. I walk with beauty below me. I walk with beauty above me. I walk with beauty around me. My words will be beautiful. In beauty all day long, may I walk. Through the returning seasons, may I walk. On the trail marked with pollen, may I walk. With dew about my feet, may I walk. With beauty before me, may I walk. With beauty behind me, may I walk. With beauty below me, may I walk. With beauty above me, may I walk. With beauty all around me, may I walk. In old age wandering on a trail of beauty, lively, may I walk. In old age wandering on a trail of beauty, living again, may I walk. My words will be beautiful. (Inaugural “Prayer”.)
It would have been better to have simply played the theme music to: Pow-Wow the Indian Boy. who, the song made clear repeatedly, “loved all the animals in the woods, in the woods, in the woods.”
Ah, but wait until you get a load the other twenty-five supposed “ministers” of various false religions, i including a Hindu “priest” whose face was nothing other than a portrait of devil worship: Straight From The Roman Pantheon of False Gods. Donald Wuerl, the conciliar “archbishop” of Washington, District of Columbia, and friend of all things lavender (see Mrs. Randy Engel’s series, The Abuse Case Against Father Anthony J. Cipollla), who permits pro-abortion, pro-perversity Catholics in public life to receive what purports to be Holy Communion in the Protestant and Judeo-Masonic Novus Ordo liturgical service, at least invoked the Holy Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ at the end of his “prayer for the country,” although he only limply grazed his hand with that of President Trump’s when the latter tried to shake his hand as “ministers” recessed down the cathedral’s main aisle. Father Wuerl does not like President Trump and what he thinks are his “exclusionary” and “divisive” policies.
The easiest way to deal with the diabolical “prayer” service two days ago is to provide you with the following quotation:
I am the LORD thy God: thou shalt not have strange Gods before me.
Donald John Trump does not know this, of course, and he continues to live in the darkness of his own false beliefs about God because the “popes” and the “bishops” of the counterfeit church of conciliarism have repeatedly demonstrated their conscious decision to forget about the First Commandment in order to curry favor with men. There is only one true religion, Catholicism, something that the conciliar officials do not believe because they are not members of the Catholic Church. Their heresies and apostasies have expelled them from the bosom of Holy Mother Church long ago.
In truth, though, nations, including the United States of America, must suffer when men who purport to be officials of the Catholic Church refuse to invoke the Holy Name of Jesus at public ceremonies as to do so would be to “offend” non-Catholics. One of the chief American exemplars of this is none other than Timothy Michael Dolan, who has been the conciliar “archbishop” of New York since April 15, 2009, and he demonstrated this once again when he simply recited Chapter Nine from The Book of Wisdom during the invocation he gave at the inauguration of President Donald John Trump and Vice President Michael Richard Pence on Friday, January 20, 2017, the Feast of Saints Fabian and Sebastian:
Cardinal DOLAN. The prayer of King Solomon from the Book of Wisdom.
Let us pray.
God of our ancestors and Lord of mercy, You have made all things, and in Your providence have charged us to rule the creatures produced by You, to govern the world in holiness and righteousness and to render judgment with integrity of heart. Give us wisdom, for we are Your servants, weak and short lived, lacking in comprehension of judgment and of laws. Indeed, though one might be perfect among mortals, if wisdom which comes from You be lacking, we count for nothing.
Now with You is wisdom who knows Your will and was there when You made the world, who understands what is pleasing in Your eyes, what is conformable with Your commands. Send her forth from Your holy heavens. From Your glorious throne dispatch her that she may be with us and work with us that we may grasp what is pleasing to You, for she knows and understands all things and will guide us prudently in our affairs and safeguard us by her glory. Amen. (Text of Timothy Michael Dolan Prayer at the Inauguration of President Donald John Trump.)
It is pretty sad when President Trump’s own personal “pastor,” Paula White-Cain, a Pentecostalist, invoked the Most Holy Trinity while delivering her own “prayer” and “Cardinal” Dolan prayed as though the Incarnation of Our Lord must be ignored on the grounds of the United States Capitol in order to avoid offending Jews, Mohammedans, Hindus, Buddhists, followers of the “Great Thumb,” atheists, agnostics and any and all others who deny the Sacred Divinity of Christ the King.
Timothy Michael Dolan had company on Friday, January 20, 2017, the Feast of Saints Vincent and Anastasius, as “Father” Patrick J. Conroy, S.J., the Chaplain of the United States House of Representatives, prayed as follows at the “benediction” to close the Congressional luncheon honoring the newly-inaugurated President Donald John Trump and Vice President Michael Richard Pence, a baptized Catholic who apostatized when he became an “evangelical” Protestant in the late-1970s:
PATRICK J. CONROY, CHAPLAIN OF THE UNITED STATES HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES: Let us pray. As we leave this place we give you thanks, oh lord, for the meal we have shared and those who have worked hard to prepare and deliver it to us, may we always be grateful for the kindnesses we have received. We thank you as well for the celebration of this day when our nation once again models for the world, the greatness of peaceful transition of power.
We ask blessing special blessing upon our new president, Donald Trump, give him an understanding heart to discern between good and evil, may he be strengthened in his work and grow in understanding as he proves ever attentive to the American people. We pray that he might become his best self. Bless as well all those who are in place to exercise power in our nation, save them from seeking those things as chewed by Solomon.
Long life, riches for self and the lives of enemies and impel them to seek the gift of discernment so as to understand justice. Lord, may the people of this nation stand with our president and all our leaders to face any challenge endure any difficulty without fear. Learn how to accept every success and every failure with grace and support our president and leaders with encouragement and prayer. Now, as we move forward this day and through all days, may all that is done be for your greater honor and glory, amen. (See the video at: “Father” Conroy’s Supposed Prayer on You Tube; and the text at: Transcript of Remarks at the Congressional Luncheon for President Trump and Vice President Pence.)
This was no mere oversight on the part of “Father” Conroy. He has been so kind enough as to tell us in his own words that he never prayers in the Holy Name of Our Lord Jesus Christ unless he is doing “something Catholic,” such as saying what he thinks is Holy Mass:
Patrick Conroy is just a true son of the conciliar revolution, but he is also a disciple of what can be called the spirit of practical religious indifferentism that was set Lord Cecil Calvert when he urged the first Catholic settlers to arrive in Maryland in 1632 to be quiet about the Holy Faith:
Ten days before the ships [taking Catholics to the Colony of Maryland] sailed, Baron [Cecil, later to be the Second Lord of Baltimore] handed his brother [Leonard] instructions enjoining the Catholics aboard the Ark and the Dove to be careful “that they suffer no scandal or offence be given to any of the Protestants,” and that they hold their own services “as privately as may be,” remembering “to be silent upon all occasions of discourse concerning matters of Religion.” Baltimore not only sought “unity and peace amongst all the passengers on Shipp-board,” but ashore as well, and thus he gave orders that upon landing the Catholics should immediately make a public oath of allegiance to the king, that when a messenger was sent to Virginia he should be “such a one as is conformable to the Church of England,” and that throughout their governance of Maryland “the said Governor and Commissioners [who were all Catholic] treate the Protestants with as much mildness and favor as Justice will permit.”
In these famous instructions, then Cecilius Calvert wrote the blueprint for religious freedom in America. His father had conceived of a colony in which Protestants and Catholics might live side by side in amity, each respecting the rights of the other, and he himself had put it into execution. True as it undoubtedly is that the Calverts were motivated by expediency, that they desperately desired to obtain religious freedom for their persecuted brethren, and that there is no reason to believe that they would have been offered it had the Catholic party, rather than the Protestant been in power, the fact remains that the Maryland Colony was tolerant at a time when all others were intolerant, and in this it was unique. As John Tracy Ellis has observed: “Two years before Roger Williams fled the Puritan wrath of Massachusetts Bay to establish religious tolerance in Rhode Island, Baltimore had laid the groundwork for such a policy in Maryland.” (Robert Leckie, American and Catholic, Doubleday, 1970, p. 25.)
Catholics are not baptized to be “silent upon all occasions of discourse concerning matters of Religion.” They are baptized and confirmed to bear witness to the truths of the true Faith. The process of “conversion in reverse” had begun. The state of apostasy and blasphemy and sacrilege and betrayal that is so prevalent today among Catholics in the United States of America and elsewhere in the world is traceable, at least in large measure, to the “relief” that Catholics, who ought to rejoice in being persecuted for the Holy Faith as Our Lord Himself promised a great reward for those who are persecuted for His Name’s sake, felt at being able to practice their Faith without persecution upon arrival in Maryland in 1634. It is no wonder that some of the descendants of those first Catholics, including the Shrivers of Maryland, have been so supportive of a “quiet” and “respectable” Catholicism as the precondition for good citizenship and “peace” with those who belong to false religions.
Protestants did not return the gift of “toleration” that Catholics had extended to them in Maryland, especially when Puritans were in control of the colony during the years when the bloodthirsty Puritan named Oliver Cromwell had overthrown and then had beheaded King Charles I, making him, Cromwell, England’s stern, Catholic-killing dictator between 1649 and the time of his death on September 3, 1658. Maryland’s “Toleration Act”, which established toleration for “Trinitarian Christians” in a vote taken by the colonial assembly on April 21, 1649, was revoked by Cromwell’s colonial commissioner, William Clairbone, in 1654, before being reinstated again after the Calverts regained control of Maryland in 1658 but abolished permanently in 1692 following the “Glorious Revolution” that had overthrown King James II, the last Catholic to have reigned in England.
Yes, there is a long history that is distinctly American of Catholics preferring a false peace to bearing a public witness to the Holy Faith, recognizing, of course, that there is also a history of American Catholics, including prelates and clerics and consecrated religious, who were most courageous in defending and propagating the true Faith, outside of which there is no salvation and without which there can be no true social order.
Here are some antidotes to the apostasy exhibited by the conciliar “popes” and thier underlings, including Timothy Michael Dolan and Patrick Conroy, conerning the necessity of proclaiming the Holy Name of Jesus publicly and of being willing to defend the Catholic Faith to the point of persecution and death:
Then Peter, filled with the Holy Ghost, said to them: Ye princes of the people, and ancients, hear: If we this day are examined concerning the good deed done to the infirm man, by what means he hath been made whole: Be it known to you all, and to all the people of Israel, that by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified, whom God hath raised from the dead, even by him this man standeth here before you whole. This is the stone which was rejected by you the builders, which is become the head of the corner. Neither is there salvation in any other. For there is no other name under heaven given to men, whereby we must be saved. (Acts 4: 8-12)
If the proclamation of the Holy Name was good enough for Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ’s parents and for the Apostles, then it is good enough for us. We must never fear the consequences of proclaiming His Holy Name, especially in “mixed company.” Remember Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ’s own words:
For he that shall be ashamed of me, and of my words, in this adulterous and sinful generation: the Son of man also will be ashamed of him, when he shall come in the glory of his Father with the holy angels. (Mk. 8: 38)
Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ used the occasion of the discourse at the Last Supper to remind the Apostles that the world would hate them on account of His Name, but that they had to rely upon the help of the Holy Ghost to remain steadfast in loyalty to Him:
If the world hate you, know ye, that it hath hated me before you. If you had been of the world, the world would love its own: but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember my word that I said to you: The servant is not greater than his master. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you: if they have kept my word, they will keep yours also.
But all these things they will do to you for my name’s sake: because they know not him who sent me. If I had not come, and spoken to them, they would not have sin; but now they have no excuse for their sin. He that hateth me, hateth my Father also. If I had not done among them the works that no other man hath done, they would not have sin; but now they have both seen and hated both me and my Father. But that the word may be fulfilled which is written in their law: They hated me without cause.
But when the Paraclete cometh, whom I will send you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who proceedeth from the Father, he shall give testimony of me.And you shall give testimony, because you are with me from the beginning. (Jn. 15: 18-27)
Do not be surprised, therefore, that the world will hate us as much as it hated Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, Who told us in the Sermon of the Mount that those who were persecuted for His Name’s sake would have a blessed reward:
Blessed are ye when they shall revile you, and persecute you, and speak all that is evil against you, untruly, for my sake: Be glad and rejoice, for your reward is very great in heaven. For so they persecuted the prophets that were before you. (Mt. 5: 11-12)
Our Blessed Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ repeated this in the Sermon on the Plain as recorded in the Gospel of Saint Luke:
Blessed shall you be when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake. Be glad in that day and rejoice; for behold, your reward is great in heaven. For according to these things did their fathers to the prophets. (Lk. 6: 22-23)
The first Pope wrote the following in his first Epistle to instruct us to be ready to suffer for the sake of the Holy Name of Jesus:
If you be reproached for the name of Christ, you shall be blessed: for that which is of the honour, glory, and power of God, and that which is his Spirit, resteth upon you. (1 Pt. 4: 14)
The Acts of the Apostles records the courage of the Apostles, headed by the first pope, Saint Peter, when they were brought before the Sanhedrin:
 Then went the officer with the ministers, and brought them without violence; for they feared the people, lest they should be stoned.  And when they had brought them, they set them before the council. And the high priest asked them,  Saying: Commanding we commanded you, that you should not teach in this name; and behold, you have filled Jerusalem with your doctrine, and you have a mind to bring the blood of this man upon us.  But Peter and the apostles answering, said: We ought to obey God, rather than men.  The God of our fathers hath raised up Jesus, whom you put to death, hanging him upon a tree.
 Him hath God exalted with his right hand, to be Prince and Saviour, to give repentance to Israel, and remission of sins.  And we are witnesses of these things and the Holy Ghost, whom God hath given to all that obey him.  When they had heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they thought to put them to death.  But one in the council rising up, a Pharisee, named Gamaliel, a doctor of the law, respected by all the people, commanded the men to be put forth a little while.  And he said to them: Ye men of Israel, take heed to yourselves what you intend to do, as touching these men.
 For before these days rose up Theodas, affirming himself to be somebody, to whom a number of men, about four hundred, joined themselves: who was slain; and all that believed him were scattered, and brought to nothing.  After this man, rose up Judas of Galilee, in the days of the enrolling, and drew away the people after him: he also perished; and all, even as many as consented to him, were dispersed.  And now, therefore, I say to you, refrain from these men, and let them alone; for if this council or this work be of men, it will come to nought;  But if it be of God, you cannot overthrow it, lest perhaps you be found even to fight against God. And they consented to him.  And calling in the apostles, after they had scourged them, they charged them that they should not speak at all in the name of Jesus; and they dismissed them.
 And they indeed went from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were accounted worthy to suffer reproach for the name of Jesus. And every day they ceased not in the temple, and from house to house, to teach and preach Christ Jesus. (Acts 5: 26-42.)
The conciliar revolutionaries believe that it is virtuous to be silent about the Holy Name of Jesus before men, a veritable requirement to be a “good citizen” of the United States of America and, of course, of the “world.”
Far from the warped, twisted mind of Jorge Mario Bergoglio, an anti-apostle who keeps silent about the Holy Name of Jesus in “mixed company,” Saint Bernardine of Siena, whose preaching about the Name above all other Names was responsible for the feast we celebrated on Monday, January 2, 2017, explained that the Holy Name of Jesus is the glory of preachers:
The name of Jesus is the glory of preachers, because the shining splendor of that name causes his word to be proclaimed and heard. And how do you think such an immense, sudden and dazzling light of faith came into the world, if not because Jesus was preached? Was it not through the brilliance and sweet savor of this name that God called us into his marvelous light? When we have been enlightened, and in that same light behold the light of heaven, rightly may the apostle Paul say to us: Once you were darkness, but now you are light in the Lord; walk as children of light.
So this name must be proclaimed, that it may shine out and never be suppressed. But it must not be preached by someone with sullied mind or unclean lips, but stored up and poured out from a chosen vessel. That is why our Lord said of Saint Paul: He is a chosen instrument of mine, the vessel of my choice, to carry my name before the Gentiles and kings and the sons of Israel. In this chosen vessel there was to be a drink more pleasing than earth ever knew, offered to all mankind for a price they could pay, so that they would be drawn to taste of it. Poured into other chosen vessels, it would grow and radiate splendor. For our Lord said: He is to Carry my name.
When a fire is lit to clear a field, it burns off all the dry and useless weeds and thorns. When the sun rises and darkness is dispelled, robbers, night-prowlers and burglars hide away. So when Paul’s voice was raised to preach the Gospel to the nations, like a great clap of thunder in the sky, his preaching was a blazing fire carrying all before it. It was the sun rising in full glory. Infidelity was consumed by it, false beliefs fled away, and the truth appeared like a great candle lighting the whole world with its brilliant flame.
By word of mouth, by letters, by miracles and by the example of his own life, Saint Paul bore the name of Jesus wherever he went. He praised the name of Jesus at all times, but never more than when bearing witness to his faith. Moreover, the Apostle did indeed carry this name before the Gentiles and kings and the sons of Israel as a light to enlighten all nations. And this was his cry wherever he journeyed: The night is passing away, the day is at hand. Let us then cast off the works of darkness and put on the armor of light; let us conduct ourselves honorably as in the day. Paul himself showed forth the burning and shining light set upon a candlestick, everywhere proclaiming Jesus, and him crucified.
And so the Church, the bride of Christ strengthened by his testimony, rejoices with the psalmist, singing: 0 God, from my youth you have taught me, and I still proclaim your wondrous deeds. The psalmist exhorts her to do this, as he says: Sing to the Lord, and bless his name, proclaim his salvation day after day. And this salvation is Jesus, her savior.” (Saint Bernardine of Siena, (Sermo 49, De glorioso Nomine Iesu Christi, cap 2: Opera omnia, 4. 505-506)
To be silent about the Holy Name of Jesus for fear of offending men is a grave sin as it offends God by showing one prefers the respect of mere creatures to giving the true God of Divine Revelation His due no matter the venue.
Similarly, Pope Leo XIII exhorted us in Sapientiae Christianae, January 10, 1890, to defend and to proclaim the truths of the Catholic Faith at all times without fail:
But in this same matter, touching Christian faith, there are other duties whose exact and religious observance, necessary at all times in the interests of eternal salvation, become more especially so in these our days. Amid such reckless and widespread folly of opinion, it is, as We have said, the office of the Church to undertake the defense of truth and uproot errors from the mind, and this charge has to be at all times sacredly observed by her, seeing that the honor of God and the salvation of men are confided to her keeping. But, when necessity compels, not those only who are invested with power of rule are bound to safeguard the integrity of faith, but, as St. Thomas maintains: “Each one is under obligation to show forth his faith, either to instruct and encourage others of the faithful, or to repel the attacks of unbelievers.” To recoil before an enemy, or to keep silence when from all sides such clamors are raised against truth, is the part of a man either devoid of character or who entertains doubt as to the truth of what he professes to believe. In both cases such mode of behaving is base and is insulting to God, and both are incompatible with the salvation of mankind. This kind of conduct is profitable only to the enemies of the faith, for nothing emboldens the wicked so greatly as the lack of courage on the part of the good. Moreover, want of vigor on the part of Christians is so much the more blameworthy, as not seldom little would be needed on their part to bring to naught false charges and refute erroneous opinions, and by always exerting themselves more strenuously they might reckon upon being successful. After all, no one can be prevented from putting forth that strength of soul which is the characteristic of true Christians, and very frequently by such display of courage our enemies lose heart and their designs are thwarted. Christians are, moreover, born for combat, whereof the greater the vehemence, the more assured, God aiding, the triumph: “Have confidence; I have overcome the world.” Nor is there any ground for alleging that Jesus Christ, the Guardian and Champion of the Church, needs not in any manner the help of men. Power certainly is not wanting to Him, but in His loving kindness He would assign to us a share in obtaining and applying the fruits of salvation procured through His grace.
The chief elements of this duty consist in professing openly and unflinchingly the Catholic doctrine, and in propagating it to the utmost of our power. For, as is often said, with the greatest truth, there is nothing so hurtful to Christian wisdom as that it should not be known, since it possesses, when loyally received, inherent power to drive away error. (Pope Leo XIII, Sapientiae Christianae, January 10, 1890.)
Alas, to call to mind a metaphor used by a concliar priest to exculpate himself for a massive rainfall on Easter Sunday over three decades ago now,the likes of Timothy Michael Doland and Patrick Conroy are “in sales, not management.” That is, these sanctimonious men who prefer human respect are just following the example set by the conciliar “popes,” starting with the first of their number who made “pastoral visits” outside of Italy, Giovanni Battista Enrico Antonio Maria Montini/Paul VI.
Here is the precedent set in this regard by Giovanni Eugenio Antonio Maria Montini/Paul VI on January 4, 1964, when he addressed King Hussein of Jordan:
We are most appreciative of your kindness in coming to welcome Us personally on Our arrival in your Kingdom.
Our visit is a spiritual one, a humble pilgrimage to the sacred places made holy by the Birth, the Life, the Passion and Death of Jesus Christ, and by His glorious Resurrection and Ascension. At each of these venerable shrines, We shall pray for that peace which Jesus left to His disciples, that peace which the world cannot give, but which comes from the fulfilment of His commandment: to love one another as He loved us (cfr. Io. 14, 27; 15, 12).
Your Majesty, We know, ardently desires peace and prosperity for your people, and for all the nations of the world; and We, Peter’s Successor, remember his reference to the Psalms in his first Epistle: «He who would love life, and see good days,… let him turn away from evil and do good, let him seek after peace and pursue it )» (Ps. 23, 13-15). Saint Peter also wrote: “(Honour all men; love the brotherhood; fear God; honour the king” (1 Petr. 11, 17).
May God grant Our prayer, and that of all men of good will, that, living together in harmony and accord, they may help one another in love and justice, and attain to universal peace in true brotherhood. (Address to the King of Jordan, January 4, 1964.)
The second of the conciliar “popes” established the precedent for his successors when visiting the Holy Land: never seek the conversion of any non-Catholic to the Catholic Faith. Always speak in Judeo-Masonic terms. The conciliar motto can be summarized s follows: “Thou shalt never offend a non-Catholic.”
Another way of phrasing this is as follows: “Thou shalt obey the commands of the Sanhedrin that the Apostles dared to defy as cited just above in this commentary:
Saying: What shall we do to these men? for indeed a known miracle hath been done by them, to all the inhabitants of Jerusalem: it is manifest, and we cannot deny it. But that it may be no farther spread among the people, let us threaten them that they speak no more in this name to any man. And calling them, they charged them not to speak at all, nor teach in the name of Jesus. But Peter and John answering, said to them: If it be just in the sight of God, to hear you rather than God, judge ye. For we cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard. (Acts 4: 16-20.)
When one speaks and acts in Judeo-Masonic terms, however, especially in the Holy Land, which is in a state of conflict because of the unbelief of Talmudists and the Mohammedans, whom the conciliar “popes” have reaffirmed in their false religions time and time and time again, one winds up pleasing no one, most especially Christ the King Himself.
As even a selective documentation of the ways in which “Saint John Paul II” refused to proclaim the Holy Name of Jesus before non-Catholics, refusing also, of course, to seek the conversion of those they addressed both in Rome and elsewhere around the world, would take too much space in the body of this commentary, the appendix provides those who are interested with all of the documentation that is needed to understand that Jorge Mario Bergoglio and his own band of Jacobin/Bolshevik conciliar revolutionaries are merely carrying on a “tradition,” albeit a perverse one, that is at the very center of all things conciliar.
For his own part, of course, the Argentine Apostate has distinguished himself on a number of levels as a man who is unafraid to blaspheme Christ the King and His Most Blessed Mother before Catholic audiences and who is too ashamed of the Holy Name of Jesus to proclaim Him to the members of the contemporary Sanhedrin, which is both Talmudic and Cabalistic. All we have to remember is that Bergoglio never once mentioned the Holy Name of Jesus when addressing “mixed audiences” at the White House on Wednesday, September 23, 2015, the Feast of Pope Saint Linus and the Commemoration of Saint Thecla, before a special joint meeting of the Congress of the United States of America on Thursday, September 24, 2015, the Feast of Our Lady of Ransom, at the United Nations and at “Ground Zero” on Friday, September 25, 2015, and while speaking in support of the heresy of “religious liberty” at Independence Hall in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on Saturday September 26, 2015, the Feast of the North American Martyrs.
Bergoglio mentioned the Quakers as pioneers of “religious liberty” in colonial America:
The Quakers were founded by an Englishman, George Fox, who hated the way in which the vestiges of Catholicism still “corrupted” religious sensibilities in England during the latter part of the Seventeenth and early Eighteenth Centuries as William Penn imported this syncretistic religion into Colony of Pennsylvania:
Meanwhile, Fox, in the intervals between his frequent imprisonments, had laboured to impart the semblance of an organization to the society; whilst the excesses of some of his followers compelled him to enact a code of discipline. His efforts in both these directions encountered strong opposition from many who had been taught to regard the inward light as the all-sufficient guide. However, the majority, sacrificing consistency, acquiesced; and before the death of Fox, 13 Jan., 1691, Quakerism was established on the principles which it has since substantially preserved.
Although the Friends repudiate creeds as “external” and “human”, yet they, at least the early Quakers and their orthodox modern followers, admit the fundamental dogmas of Christianity as expounded in the Apostles’ Creed. Rejecting as non-Scriptural the term Trinity, they confess theGodhead of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Ghost; the doctrine of the Redemption and salvation through Christ; and the sanctification of soulsthrough the Holy Spirit. Their ablest apologists, as Robert Barclay and William Penn, have not been able to explain satisfactorily in what respect the “inward light” differs from the light of the individual reason; neither have they reconciled the doctrine of the supreme authority of the “inner voice” with the “external” claims of Scripture and the historic Christ. These doctrinal weaknesses were fruitful germs of dissensions in later times.
Though one of the earliest of Fox’s “testimonies” was in reprobation of “steeple-houses”, that is, the stately edifices with which Catholicpiety had covered the soil of England, nevertheless, as his adherents grew in numbers, he was forced to gather them into congregations for purposes of worship and business. These “particular meetings” assembled on the first day of the week. They worshipped without any form of liturgy and in silence until some man, woman, or child was moved by the Spirit to “give testimony”, the value of which was gauged by the common sense of the assembly. (Society of Friends, as found at New Advent Encyclopedia.)
There is, you see, a great similarity between the liturgically and doctrinally “liberated” Quakers and the man who, most tragically, is accepted by most people, Catholics and non-Catholics alike, in the world as “Pope Francis,” namely, the blaspheming heretic named Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who has kept his peace about the Holy Name of Jesus in front of Jews, Mohammedans, Hindus, Budhists, Communists and other atheists, and just about anyone else.
Indeed, fearing to offend “nonbelievers” with even a pretend blessing, the lay Jesuit simply asked the crowd gathered on the Capitol Mall to send him “good wishes” after he had addressed Congress on September 24, 2015:
In improvised remarks made from the balcony of the American Congress to huge crowds gathered in the National Mall in Washington, Pope Francis asked God to bless all the people of America, especially the children and their families. Speaking in his native Spanish, he asked the crowds to pray for him too, adding that “if there are among you any who do not believe or cannot pray, I ask you please to send good wishes my way”.
The Pope’s impromptu greeting came after his address inside Congress to a joint meeting of the House of Representatives and the Senate. Before taking his leave of the cheering crowds lining the Mall, the Pope said in English “Thank you very much – and God bless America!” (Bergoglio gives impromptu greeting to crowds in Washington Mall.)
It is as though Jorge said, “Hey, baby, send me some good vibes.” To quote a friend of ours, “What a jerk.”
The conciliar “popes” have acted as though the courage of the Apostles themselves, who had been enjoined by the Sanhedrin never to speak the Holy Name of Jesus again, was nothing other than a personal choice on their part that carries with it no binding obligation today, especially after the events of World War II that keep being used as a pretext for the apostate conciliar “doctrine” concerning the “enduring” nature of the Old Covenant.
refusal of Jorge Mario Bergoglio and his band of concilar revolutionaries, including is fellow lay Jesuit, Patrick Conroy, and one of the “bishops” he inherited from Joseph Alois Ratzinger/Benedict XVI by way of Karol Josef Wojtyla/”Saint” John Paul II, Timothy Michael Dolan, to utter the Holy Name of Jesus when im the presence of those who do not believe in Our Lord’s Sacred Divinity stands in stark contrast to the examples provided us by millions of martyrs, many of whom died with the sweet Name of Jesus on their very lips as they died after refusing to disown the only Name given to men by which they can be saved.
Consider the example of the very saints whose feast day was celebrated on the very same day, January 20, 2017, that Timothy Michael Dolan and Patrick Conroy chose not to invoke the Holy Name of Jesus before men in a public setting:
Two great Martyrs divide between them the honours of the twentieth day of Janauary—one, a Pontiff of the Church in Rome; the other, a member of that Mother-Church. Fabian received the crown of martyrdom, in the year 250, under the persecution of Decius; the persecution of Diocletian crowned Sebastian in the year 288. We will consider the merits of these two champions of Christ separately.
St. Fabian, like St. Clement and St. Antherus, two of his predecessors, was extremely zealous in seeing that the Acts of the Martyrs were carefully drawn up. This zeal was no doubt exercised by the clergy in the case of our holy Pontiff himself, and his sufferings and martyrdom were carefully registered; but all these interesting particulars have been lost, in common with condemned to the flames, by the Imperial Edicts, during the persecution under Diocletian. Nothing is now known of the life of St. Fabian, save a few of his actions as Pope; but we may have some idea of his virtues by the praise given him by St. Cyprian, who, in a letter to St. Cornelius, the immediate successor of St. Fabian, calls him an incomparable man. The Bishop of Carthage extols the purity and holiness of the life of the holy Pontiff, who so peaceably governed the Church amidst all the storms which then assailed her. There is an interesting circumstance related of him by Eusebius. After the death of St. Antherus, the people and clergy of Rome assembled together for the election of a new Pontiff. Heaven marked out the successor of St. Peter: a dove was seen to rest on the venerable head of Fabian and he was unanimously chosen. This reminds us of the even in our Lord’s Life, which we celebrated a few days back, when standing in the river Jordan, the Dove came down from heaven, and showed him to the people as the Son of God. Fabian was depository of the power of regeneration, which Jesus by his baptism gave to the element of water; he zealously propagated the Faith of his Divine Master, and among the Bishops he consecrated for divers places, one or more Twere sent by him into these western parts of Europe. (Dom Prosper Gueranger, O.S.B., The Liturgical Year, Christmas Book II, Volume 3, pp. 346-348.)
We give the short account of the Acts of St. Fabian, as recorded in the Liturgy.
Fabian was a Roman, and sat as Pope from the year of our Lord 236, in the reign of the Emperor Maximin till 250, in that of Decius. He appointed a Deacon to each of the seven districts of Rome to look after the poor. He likewise appointed the same number of Subdeacons to collect the acts of the Martyrs from the records kept by the seven district notaries. It was by him that it was ordained that every Maundy Thursday the old Chrism should be burnt and new consecrated. He was crowned with martyrdom upon the 20th of January, in the persecution of Decius, and buried in the cemetery of St Kallistus on the Appian Way, having sat in the throne of Peter fifteen years and four days. He held five Advent ordinations, in which he ordained twenty – two Priests, seven Deacons, and eleven Bishops for divers Sees. (As found at: Divinum Officio.)
Dom Prosper Gueranger composed a prayer to Pope Saint Fabian that shows the contrast between this true pope and martyr for the Catholic Faith, not for religious liberty, and the false “popes” and their appartchiks of the counterfeit church of conciliarism:
Thus dist thou live out the long tempestuous days of thy Pontificate, O Fabian! But thou hadst the presentiment of the peaceful future reserved by God for his Church, and thou didst zealously labour to hand down to the coming generations the great examples of the Martyrs. The flames have robbed us of a great portion of the treasures thou preparedst for us, and have deprived us of knowing the Fabian who so loved the Martyrs, and died one himself. But of thee, Blessed Pontiff ! we know enough to make us thank God for having set thee over his Church in those hard times, and keep this day as a feast in celebration of thy glorious triumph. The dove, which marked out as the one chosen by heaven, showed thee to men as the visible Christ on earth; it told thee that thou wert destined for heavy responsibilities and martyrdom; it was a warning to the Church that she should recognize and hear thee as her guide and teacher. Honoured with a resemblance to Jesus in the mystery of his Epiphany, pray to him for us, that he may mercifully manifest himself our mind and heart. Obtain of him for us that docility to his grace, that loving submisveness to his will, that detachment from all created things, which were the support of thy life during those fifteen years of thy threatened and anxious pontificate. When the angry persecution of length broke on thee, it found thee prepared, and martyrdom carried thee to the bosom of that God, who had already welcomed so many of thy martyred children. We too are looking for that last wave which is to break over us, and carry us from the shore of this present life to eternity; oh ! pray for us, that it may find us ready! If the love of the Divine Babe, our Jesus, be within us; if, like thee, we imitate the simplicity of the dove; we shall not be lost! Here are our hearts—we wish for nothing but God; help us by thy prayers. (Dom Prosper Gueranger, O.S.B., The Liturgical Year, Christmas Book II, Volume 3, pp. 348-350.)
At the head of her list of heroes, after the two glorious Apostles Peter and Paul, who form her chief glory, Rome puts her two most valiant martyrs, Laurence and Sebastian, and her two most illustrious Virgins, Cecily and Agnes. Of these four, two are given us by the Calendar of Chistmastide as attendants in the court of the Infant Jesus at Bethelem. Laurence and Cecily come later in the year, when other mysteries are brought before us by the Liturgy; but Christmas calls forth Sebastian and Agnes. To-day it is the brave soldier of the pretorian band, Sebastian, who stands by the Crib to-morrow we shall see Agnes, gentle as a lamb, yet fearless as a lion, inviting us to love the sweet Babe whom she chose for her Spouse.
The chivalrous spirit of Sebastian reminds us of the great Archdeacon; both of them, one in the sanctuary and the other in the world, defied the tortures of death. Burnt on one side, Laurence bids the tyrant roast the other; Sebastian, pieced with his arrows, waits till the gaping wounds are closed, and then runs to his persecutor Diocletian, asking for a second martyrdom. But we must forget Laurence to-day, to think of Sebastian.
We must picture to ourselves a young soldier, who tears himself away from all the ties of his home at Milan, because the persecution there was too tame, whereas at Rome, it was at its fiercest. He trembles with anxiety at the thought that perhaps some of the Christians in the Capital may be losing courage. He has been told that at times some of the Emperor’s soldiers, who were also soldiers of Christ, have gained admission into the prisons, and have roused up the singing courage of the confessors. He is resolved to go on the like mission, and hopes that he may also receiving the blessing of martyrdom. He reaches Rome, he is admitted into the prisons, and encourages to martyrdom such as had been shaken by the tears of those who were dear to them. Some of gaolers, converted by witnessing his faith and his miracles, become martyrs themselves; and one of the Roman Magistrates asks to be instructed in a religion which can produce such men as Sebastian. He has won the esteem of the Emperors Diocletian and Maximian Hercules for his fidelity and courage as a soldier; they have loaded him with favours; and this gives him an influence in Rome which he so zealously turns to the advantage of the Christian religion, that the holy Pope Caius calls him the Defender of the Faith.
After sending innumerable martyrs to heaven, Sebastian at length wins the crown he had so ardently desired. He incurs the displeasure of Diocletian by confessing himself to be a Christian; the heavenly King, for whose sake alone he had put on the helmet and soldier’s cloak, was to him above all Emperors and Princes. He is handed over to the archers of Mauritania, who strip him, bind him, and wound him from head to foot with their arrows. They left him, and his wounds were healed. Sebastian again approaches the Emperor, who orders him to be beaten to death in the circus, near the Imperial Palace.
Such are the Soldiers of our new-born King; but oh! how richly does repay them for their service! Rome, the Capital of his Church, is founded on seven Basilicas, as ancient City was on its seven hills; and the name and tomb of Sebastian graces one of these seven sanctuaries. The Basilica of Sebastian stands in a sort of solitude, on the Appian Way, outside the walls of Eternal City; it is enriched with the relics of the holy Pope and Martyr Fabian; but Sebastian, the valiant leader of the pretorian guard, is the Patron, and as it were the Prince of the holy temple. It was here that he wished to be buried, as a faithful guardian, near the well wherein the bodies of the holy Apostles had been concealed, lest they be desecrated by the persecutors.
In return for the zeal of St. Sebastian for the souls of his Christian brethren, whom he preserved from the contagion of paganism. God has made him the Protector of the faithful pestilence. A signal proof of the power granted to the holy Martyr was given at Rome, in the year 680, under the Pontificate of St. Agatho.
Let us now listen to our holy Mother the Church, who thus speaks of her glorious Martyr in the Office of his Feast. (Dom Prosper Gueranger, O.S.B., The Liturgical Year, Christmas Book II, Volume 3, pp. 349-351.)
The father of Sebastian was of Narbonne, and his mother a Milanese. He was a great favourite of the Emperor Diocletian, both on account of his noble birth and his personal bravery, and was by him appointed captain of the first company of the Praetorian Guards. He was in secret a Christian, and often supported the others both by good offices and money. When some showed signs of yielding under persecution, he so successfully exhorted them, that, for Jesus Christ’s sake, many offered themselves to the tormentors. Among these were the brothers Mark and Marcellian who were imprisoned at Rome in the house of Nicostratus. The wife of Nicostratus himself, named Zoe, had lost her voice, but it was restored to her at the prayer of Sebastian. These facts becoming known to Diocletian, he sent for Sebastian, and after violently rebuking him, used every means to turn him from his faith in Christ. But as neither promises nor threats availed, he ordered him to be tied to a post and shot to death with arrows.
Sebastian was treated accordingly, and left for dead, but in the night the holy widow Irene sent for the body in order to bury it, and then found that he was still alive, and nursed him in her own house. As soon as his health was restored, he went out to meet Diocletian, and boldly rebuked him for his wickedness. The Emperor was first thunderstruck at the sight of a man whom he believed to have been some time dead, but afterwards, frenzied with rage at tle reproaches of Sebastian, ordered him to be beaten to death with rods, under which torment the martyr yielded his blessed soul to God, (upon the 20th day of January, in the year of our Lord 288.) His body was thrown into a sewer, but he appeared in sleep to Lucina, and made known to her where it was, and where he would have it buried. She accordingly found it and laid it in those Catacombs, over which a famous Church hath since been built, called St Sebastian’s-without-the-Walls. (As found at: Divinum Officio.)
Dom Prosper Gueranger’s prayer to Saint Sebastian invites us all to pray to this great martyr for courage to profess the Holy Name at all times no matter what temporal suffering we might suffer as a result:
Brave Soldier of our Emmauel! thou art now sweetly reposing at the foot of his throne. Thy wounds are closed, and thy rich palm-branch delights all heaven by the freshness of it unfading beauty. Look down the Church on earth, that tires not in singing thy praise. Each Christmas, we find these near the Crib of the Divine Babe, its brave and faithful sentinel. The office tho didst once fill in an earthly prince’s court is still thine, but it is in the palace of the King of kings. Into that palace, we beseech, lead us by thy prayers, and gain a favourable hearing to our unworthy petitions.
With what a favourable ear must not Jesus receive all thy requests, who didst love him such a brave love! Thirsting to shed thy blood in his service, thou didst scorn a battlefield where danger was not sure, and Rome, that Babylon which as St. John says, was drunk with the blood of the Martyrs.
Rome alone was worthy of thee. And there it was not thy plan to secure the palm of martyrdom only for thyself; the courage of some of thy fellow-Christians had wavered, and the thought of their danger troubled thee. Rushing into their prisons, where they lay mutilated by the tortures they had endured, thou didst give then back the fallen laurel, and teach them how to secure it in the gasp of holy defiance. It seemed as though thou wast commissioned to form a pretorian band for the King of heaven, and that thou couldst not enter heaven unless marshaling thither a troop of veterans for Jesus Thy turn came at last; the hour of thy confession was at hand, and thou hadst to think of thine own fair crown. But for such a soldier as thou, Sebastian, one martyrdom is not enough. The archers have faithfully done their work—not an arrow is left in their quivers; and yet their victim lives, ready for a second sacrifice. Such were the Christians of the early times, and we are their children!
Look, then, O Soldier of Christ! upon us, and pity us, as thou didst thy brethren, who once faltered in the combat. Alas! we let everything frighten and discourage us; and oftentimes we are enemies of the Cross, even while professing that we love it. We too easily forget that we cannot be companions of the martyrs unless our hearts have the generosity of the martyrs. We are cowardly in our contest with the world and it pomps; with the evil propensities of our nature, and the tyranny of our senses; and thus we fall. And when we have made an easy peace with God, and sealed it with the sacrament of his love, we behave as though we have nothing more to do than to go quietly to heaven, without further trials or self-imposed sacrifices. Rouse us, great Saint! from these illusions, and waken us from our listless life. Our love of God is asleep, and all must needs go wrong.
Preserve us from the contagion of bad example, that we may be clad with the armour of God, described to us by the great Apostle. May we have on the breastplate of justice, which will defend us from sin; the helmet of salvation, that is, the hope of gaining heaven, which will preserve us from both despair and presumption; the shield of faith, which will wad off the darts of the enemy who seeks to corrupt the heart by leading the mind into error; and lastly, the word of the Spirit, which is the word of God, whereby we may put all false doctrines to flight, and vanquish all our vices; for heaven and earth pass away, but the word of God abides for ever, and is given us as our rule and the pledge of our salvation.
Defender of the Church, as the Vicar of Christ called thee, lift up thy sword and defend her now. Prostrate her enemies, and frustrate the plots they have laid for her destruction. Let her enjoy one of those rare periods of peace during which she prepares for fresh combats. Obtain for Christian soldiers, engaged in just wars, the blessing of the God of Hosts. Protect the Holy City of Rome, where thy Tomb is honoured. Avert from us, by thy intercession, the scourge of pestilence and contagion. Hear the prayers which each year are addressed to thee for the preservation of the creatures given to man to aid him in his daily labour. Secure to us, by thy prayers, peace and happiness in this present life, and the good thing of the life to come. (Dom Prosper Gueranger, O.S.B., The Liturgical Year, Christmas Book II, Volume 3, pp. 354-356.)
The silence about the Holy Name of Jesus as maintained by Jorge Mario Bergoglio and his conciliar revolutionaries has only emboldened the forces of Judeo-Masonry, who helped to enginerr the anti-Incarnational world of Modernity that coopted so many Catholics before the “Second” Vatican Council and was the driving force at that illegal council, abroad in the world to step up their attacks on those who dare to profess the Holy Name of Jesus in public……….Read more »
