A Golden Calf by Any Other Name

“Good afternoon, I would like to say a word about the pachamama statues that were removed from the Church at Traspontina
~Pope Francis to Amazon Synod attendees, Friday, 10/25/19

 

Pope calls statues ‘Pachamamas’ and apologizes for their removal from church  – Lifesite News.

 

The Pachamama Pope – Rod Dreher  – The American Conservative

 

Francis announced the idols are pachamamas and then apologized for their being tossed into the Tiber.  He ended the announcement of their retrieval by the police with a backhanded statement about them showing up at the final Mass on Sunday.

A news reporter taped his Pachamama comments on his phone and posted an article for his news outlet in France.  Lifesite News followed up with a transcript.  The Vatican then came out with their version. The link to Lifesite News is above.  Rod Dreher wrote an interesting article entitled The Pachamama Pope (the link is above) with several useful links, including an interview by Raymond Arroyo with Cardinal Gerhard Mueller from Thursday night. If you didn’t see the program, you could find the full program HERE.

I watched the Mass on live TV from Rome, and the pachamamas didn’t show up. (I tuned in after the entrance procession-might have missed something) However, the last item presented for the offering was an odd-looking, small boat-shaped planter full of earth, weeds, and a flower or two dangling over the edge with “Amazon” painted on the side.  The pope had it placed on the altar.  He didn’t carry a stang, as he did last year at the synod, but he did carry a ferula that had pagan faces carved into it.  I imagine we will hear something about that.

 


Yesterday, Bishop Athanasius Schneider issued an open letter condemning the use of the Pachamama statue at the Amazon Synod in the Vatican.  Toward the end of the Open Letter he says, “The honest and Christian reaction to the dance around the Pachamama, the new Golden Calf, in the Vatican should consist in a dignified protest, a correction of this error, and above all in acts of reparation.”  

Here are his first four points:

1. “You shall have no other gods before Me,” says the Lord God, as the first of the commandments (Ex 20:3). Delivered originally to Moses and the Hebrew people, this command remains valid for all people and all times, as God tells us: “You shall not carve idols for yourselves in the shape of anything in the sky above or on the earth below or in the waters beneath the earth; you shall not bow down before them or worship them” (Ex 20:4-5). Our Lord Jesus Christ kept this commandment perfectly. When offered the kingdoms of the world if only he would bow to the devil, Jesus responded, “Begone, Satan! for it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God and him only shall you serve’” (Mt 4:10; Dt 6:13-14). The example of Christ, therefore, is of the utmost importance for all people who desire “the true God and eternal life”; as St. John the Apostle exhorts us: “Little children, keep yourselves from idols” (1 Jn 5:20-21).

In our day, this message has special importance, for syncretism and paganism are like poisons entering the veins of the Mystical Body of Christ, the Church. As a successor to the Apostles, entrusted with care for God’s flock, I cannot remain silent in the face of the blatant violation of God’s holy will and the disastrous consequences it will have upon individual souls, the Church as a whole, and indeed the entire human race. It is therefore with great love for the souls of my brothers and sisters that I write this message.

2. On October 4, 2019, on the eve of the Amazon Synod, a religious ceremony was held in the Vatican Gardens, in the presence of Pope Francis and of several bishops and cardinals, which was led partly by shamans and in which symbolic objects were used; namely, a wooden sculpture of an unclothed pregnant woman. These representations are known and belong to indigenous rituals of Amazonian tribes, and specifically to the worship of the so-called Mother Earth, the Pachamama.In the following days the wooden naked female figures were also venerated in St. Peter’s Basilica in front of the Tomb of St. Peter. Pope Francis also greeted two bishops carrying the Pachamama object on their shoulders processing it into the Synod Hall where it was set in a place of honor. Pachamama statues were also put on display in the church of Santa Maria in Traspontina.

In response to outcries from the Catholic faithful regarding these rites and the use of these statues, Vatican spokesmen and members of committees of the Amazon Synod downplayed or denied the evident religious syncretistic character of the statues.Their answers, however, were evasive and contradictory; they were acts of intellectual acrobatics and denials of obvious evidence.

The American visual media company “Getty Images” made an official press photograph of this ritual with this description: “Pope Francis and Cardinal Cardinal Cláudio Hummes, Archbishop Emeritus of São Paulo, President of the Pan-Amazonian Ecclesial Network (REPAM), stand in front of a statue representing Pachamama (Mother Earth).” Rev. Paulo Suess, a participant in the Amazon Synod, left no doubt as to the pagan character of the ceremonies with the wooden images in the Vatican Gardens and dared even to welcome pagan rites, saying: “Even if this was a pagan rite, it is nevertheless a pagan worship of God. One cannot dismiss paganism as nothing” (October 17, Vatican News interview). In an official statement, on October 21, the Pan-Amazonian Ecclesial Network (REPAM) condemned the heroic act of the gentlemen who had thrown the wooden images into the Tiber as an act of “religious intolerance.” They thereby unmasked the lies and tricks with which they denied the religious character of the venerated wooden images. Volunteers of the Carmelite Church Santa Maria in Traspontina, where the wooden statues were displayed, corroborated this statement, saying: “The [carved] mother that I brought from Brazil … that was in the procession, well, we brought it from Brazil. It was done by an indigenous artist, and we asked him for a piece of art that would symbolize all of that connection of Mother Earth, of women, the feminine aspect of God, that God is the one who protects and nourishes life,” she said, calling it both a symbol of “Mother Earth” and the “Pachamama.”

Objective sources note that the Pachamama is an object of veneration, a goddess to which some Bolivians sacrifice llamas, an earth deity worshipped by some Peruvians, rooted in pagan Incan beliefs and practices.

3. Catholics cannot accept any pagan worship, nor any syncretism between pagan beliefs and practices and those of the Catholic Church. The acts of worship of kindling a light, of bowing, of prostrating or profoundly bowing to the ground and dancing before an unclothed female statue, which represents neither Our Lady nor a canonized saint of the Church, violates the first Commandments of God: “You shall have no other gods before Me” and the explicit prohibition of God, who commands: “Beware lest you lift up your eyes to heaven, and when you see the sun and the moon and the stars, all the host of heaven, you be drawn away and worship them and serve them, things which the Lord your God has allotted to all the peoples under the whole heaven” (Dt 4:19), and: “You shall make for yourselves no idols nor graven image, neither rear you up a standing image, neither shall you set up any image of stone in your land, to bow down unto it: for I am the Lord your God” (Lev 26:1).

The Apostles prohibited even the slightest allusions or ambiguity in regard to acts of venerating idols: “And what agreement has the temple of God with idols?” (2 Cor, 6:15-16), and “Flee from idolatry. The things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that you should have fellowship with devils. You cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: you cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils. Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than he?” (1 Cor 10:16, 21-22).

St. Paul, without doubt, would say to all who actively participated in the acts of veneration of Pachamama statues, which symbolize material or creatural things, these words: “But now, after that you have known God, or rather are known by God: how turn you again to the weak and needy elements, which you desire to serve again?” (Gal 4:9). The pagans, indeed, worshipped the elements as though they were living things. And observing the syncretistic or at least highly ambiguous religious acts in the Vatican’s Gardens, in St. Peter’s Basilica and in the church of Santa Maria in Traspontina, St. Paul would say: “They worshipped and served the creature rather than the Creator, who is blessed forever” (Rom 1:25).

All true Catholics, who still have the spirit of the Apostles and of the Christian martyrs, should weep and say about the pagan ceremonies which took place in the Eternal City of Rome, paraphrasing the words of Psalm 79:1: “O God, the heathen have come into thine inheritance; thy holy city of Rome have they defiled; they have laid Rome in ruins.”

The Amazon Synod is over, but you can be sure the damage unleashed against faithful Catholics is just beginning to surface.

God bless you always,

The Dirt Behind Pachamama

Naaman said, “Then, if not, please let your servant be given two mule-loads of earth; for your servant will no longer offer either burnt offering or sacrifice to other gods, but to the LORD.
~ 2 Kings 5:17, First Reading, Catholic Mass, 10/13/2019

 

Pachamama – Usurper of Catholic Faith

 

…“Rise up, O LORD! Let Your enemies be scattered, And let those who hate You flee before You.”
~ Numbers 10:35

 

The Vatican keeps refusing to give a name to the items tossed into the Tiber in Rome on Monday. They were idols. We know that because the entire world witnessed a circle of people bowing down in worship before them.  The one thing the Vatican did admit was they were not representative of the Virgin Mary.  Interesting information is coming forth about the real purpose of the idols, known all over as Pachamama.


There is more to the story

How is Pachamama tied in with the Vatican’s current scheme of things?  Different posts have insights today, and one confirms a suspicion that there is more to the story.

Ann Barnhardt came up with a post from 2012Here’s what Ann had to say:

Important Deep Background Info on Pachamama from ARSH 2012. For aggressive distribution.

I don’t endorse the author of the following blog, nor 100% of its contents, HOWEVER I do think that this info is worth engaging and spreading. I always like being able to look at data that is removed from current events in time – this blog article is from ARSH 2012.

The Green Virgin – Pachamama: The final balance between Common Law and the Law of Mother Nature


I read both Ann’s and The Green Virgin articles.  If you read Ann’s material and don’t understand the term “new world order,” neither did I until about a year ago.  When I began to research the Amazon Synod, months ago, I didn’t realize the ecology crowd and one world order crowd seem to be birds of a feather.  They flock together.

Ann included some excellent points.  Concerning Pachamama:

Pachamama was ressurected by the Communitarians to become the blessed Mother of us all, and much like Etzioni’s Cabbalistic interpretation of the oral and secret Talmud with a good mix of Greek and New Testament sentiments, the Pachamama is less of a religion and more of a law religionalized. 

READ MORE – The entire article from Ann Barnhardt.

The Green Virgin article explains who the Communitarians are. There is a lot of information in The Green Virgin post, and worth a read for the important points.  It reveals a gameplan that has been in force for a long time.  A disturbing bit is about the Catholic Church, particularly about the Divine Mercy service being usurped in Holland!  READ MORE – The entire article concerning the Green Virgin.


The Dirt…

A phrase bothered me in a report from Vatican News about soil brought into the Vatican Garden tree planting ceremony where we first saw Pachamama. The phrase was “sustainable development projects around the world.” It seemed an odd phrase considering the dire descriptions for the rest of the dirt. I had a feeling it was probably a clear message to someone.  The Vatican News report:

Signs and symbols

…Even the soil in which the tree was planted came steeped in significance. There was soil from the Amazon, celebrating the wealth of the bioregion’s cultures and traditions; earth from India, representing countries most vulnerable to the climate crisis, where droughts and floods leave millions devastated; soil representing refugees and migrants, forced to leave their homes because of war, poverty, and ecological devastation. There was earth from places of human trafficking, and from sustainable development projects around the world. And there was more soil from the Amazon, earth bathed in the blood of those who have died fighting against its destruction.

My question was answered while reading The Green Virgin post:

For twenty years illuminated Americans have been rebuilding communities to fit into a communitarian wholistic system of law. For over a hundred years they’ve been teaching their own Book of Revelations that would manifest as the Ecozeric Era. In 2012, the entire globe is prepared to bow before the “rights” of Pachamama, although they’ll do it under the uplifting guise of benign sounding phrases like holistic sustainable community revitalization. Sustainable development and sustainability influence today’s urban planners. ..”

“Sustainable developments” was written about in the piece on the Green Virgin-Pachamama. It is tied in with the eco-religion theology.  It is one of their code words. Perhaps bringing in the soil and including it in the Vatican News gave a message to fellow communitarians.  To them, the worship of the Pachamama Idols in the Vatican Garden would be quite a victory.  I don’t know what other religions are calling this “illumination,” but I call it an attempt to usurp the Catholic faith.  The most disturbing news is that it is coming from the pope down through the hierarchy.  We seem to have here the doctrine of demons theologians and laypeople have wondered about through the ages.  And for the past three weeks, Catholics have witnessed the rotten fruit of years of planning to bring this false eco-theology to Rome.


Dirt Worth Mentioning

“Who will stand up for me against evildoers? Who will take his stand for me against those who do wickedness?”
~ Psalm 94:16

 

I wonder if there was one priest anywhere who read the first reading at Sunday Mass on October 13th and had enough courage to denounce the pagan ceremony that took place planting a tree with strange soil in the Vatican Garden the week before.  The reading came from 2Kings 5, about Elijah and Naaman, the Commander of the Army of the King of Syria. (2Kings 5:14-17)

 So he went down and dipped seven times in the Jordan, according to the saying of the man of God; and his flesh was restored like the flesh of a little child, and he was clean.

And he returned to the man of God, he and all his aides, and came and stood before him; and he said, “Indeed, now I know that there is no God in all the earth, except in Israel; now therefore, please take a gift from your servant.”

 But he said, “As the LORD lives, before whom I stand, I will receive nothing.” And he urged him to take it, but he refused.

 So Naaman said, “Then, if not, please let your servant be given two mule-loads of earth; for your servant will no longer offer either burnt offering or sacrifice to other gods, but to the LORD.

Naaman took the dirt from God’s Land because it was Holy ground, and he knew he was returning to a land that worshipped idols.  In the next verse.  He asks for forgiveness ahead of the time when he must accompany his King!

Every bit of earth brought into the Vatican Garden had significance to those involved in the pagan rituals taking place.  If you read the words of the former witchdoctor’s grandson in an article posted on Lifesite News, you’ll find it gives you pause for thought.  Guileless Christians don’t function this way, but diabolic spirits attached to fallen Christians do.


WHO WILL STAND FOR ME?

Faithful Catholics throughout the world are asking the words of Psalm 94:16 in their prayers to God in this hour.  We are praying for our priests, but we wonder. Who will stand up for us against evildoers?  Who will take his stand for us against those who do wickedness?  Who?

Dear Faithful Ones,

Be sure to read the full scripture in Psalm 94!  We have an answer…”When anxiety was great within me, your consolation brought joy to my soul.

God bless you always,

Nancy M.

Idol Tossed Into the Tiber

“Little children, keep yourselves from idols. Amen” (1 Jn 5:21).

 

I was beginning to write a post when I open my email and found this update from Rome. Someone, hopefully, a faithful Catholic member, in Rome, Italy collected Earth Mother idols and threw them into the Tiber.

 

The headline was:

Breaking: Amazon Synod Pachamama Idols Thrown into Tiber River in Rome

Breaking news from Rome, everyone: Some courageous soul has decided there’s been enough dialogue and bridge building and it’s now time for some action: The disgusting Pachamama idols that had popped up in the church of Santa Maria in Traspontina and that Francis had blessed in the Vatican Gardens on Oct. 4 in connection with the ongoing Amazon Synod, have been removed by an as-yet-unidentified individual and cast into the Tiber river.

The full article HERE.

This article comes from Norvous Ordo Watch, which allows me to update those who are newly awakened to the tremendous upheaval among faithful Catholics to what the terms “Norvous Ordo” and “Sedevacantist” mean.  As I’ve said in earlier posts, faithful Catholics in transition seem to be either conservative, traditional, or sedevacantis. Sedevacantis have entirely disengaged from Rome and consider the last valid pope to be Pope Pius XII, who died in 1958. From the About page:

“Indeed, we believe that the Throne of St. Peter has been vacant (empty) since the passing of Pius XII, although we acknowledge as a possibility that a true Pope was elected at some point after Pius XII and then impeded from exercising his papacy.”

 

While sedevacantist means “the seat of the pope is vacant,” norvous ordo means “new order.” The term applies to the new Mass, which stemmed from Vatican II and to sedevacantists, extends to the Roman Church since the same time.

“Since then, true Catholics who have kept the Faith handed down to us unadulterated from Pope St. Peter until Pope Pius XII, have come to label the entire new religion this “Mass” expresses as “Novus Ordo”, and hence we refer to it as the “Novus Ordo religion” and its worldwide establishment headquartered in the Vatican as the “Novus Ordo Church”.”

Until Pope Benedict XVI‎ reinstated the Latin Mass within the Church, many seeking the traditional Mass looked outside of diocesan churches to find one.  Some considered themselves to be traditional Catholics and remained part of the current Church.  Others chose to totally disconnect from today’s Church as we know it.  Here is the link:  About Norvous Ordo Watch

Surviving Spiritual Combat

You have rescued me,
O God who keeps His promises,
I worship only You, how You hate those
who worship idols those imitation gods.
~King David, Psalm 31:6

 

The Spiritual Combat Zone

 

The final words of my last post about Francis’ failure to personally refute denying the divinity of Jesus Christ were:

 “We have only the bland statement issued from the Vatican Press office after every Scalarari article that turns Catholic faithful upside down.

 

Recently, I listened to Christian music on IHeart Radio.  A song entitled Rescue came on and caught my attention. I located it online and listened to the lyrics a number of times.  Listening, I thought about writing a post to faithful Catholics in the early stages of spiritual suffering. Good people are coming to grips with uncomfortable truths, watching the integrity of Catholic hierarchy evaporate before their eyes.  For many, this causes spiritual turmoil.

There was a time when I struggled with tremendous spiritual turmoil.  I had breast cancer and reached out to similar victims with a blog called Grace with Cancer. A song which began a process of turning around my downward spiritual spiral was posted there.  I came across this old post shortly after listening to Rescue’s lyrics.  I don’t know how the old post popped up, but I do know listening to that old song of Christian encouragement reminded me of what returning to Scriptural basics can accomplish.

Rescue

Praise and worship music begin my devotion time. It clears the atmosphere. Take a few minutes to enjoy the beautiful song and lyrics Lauren Daigle sings in Resue.  Scroll down and read while you listen.  In a sense, the lyrics recall the Lord’s promise of victory to embattled Catholic faithful.

 

Lauren Daigle’s lyrics remind me of spiritual battle.  On Catholic Exchange, Stephen Beale wrote concerning (the Book of) Revelation is a Call to Battle:

Stephen wrote about Catholics seeing Revelation as a call to spiritual battle; Lauren wrote lyrics about Christians amid a spiritual battle. What if I write an open letter from the One who dictated Revelation to John in his time to Catholics in our time concerning preparing for spiritual battle. What might it say? Here goes…

The atmosphere surrounding you can teach you

 

For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
~St. Paul, Ephesians 6:12

 

Beloved and Faithful Ones,

There is no doubt you are in the midst of a spiritual combat zone.  American Catholics were devastated by last summer’s revelations of the sexual abuse of minors by Catholic clerics, as revealed by the State of Pennsylvania. You were stunned by Archbishop Vigano’s expose of the Lavender Mafia.  Fourteen months later, no one has stepped forward to prove it is anything but true. Right before the Amazon Synod, financial corruption to the tune of millions of dollars became apparent when the Vatican Guard took the financial records from the office of the Secretariat of State. Pagan idols appeared in the Vatican Gardens and beyond in Rome. The Pope does not personally deny the scandalous report of his conversation, denying the divinity of Christ.

Mother Earth – Pachamama – idol in St. Peter Cathedral, Rome

Spiritual Reality: the Enemy of your souls is running all over you through “feet on the ground” via members of the Catholic clergy from the top down.

It is startling to see idol worship in the Vatican Garden and again inside St. Peter, where the pope and entourage pay homage to the horrible Earth Mother idol. It is painful to learn the top cardinal, the man next to the pope until last summer, is implicated in the Vatican financial corruption scandal. It is horrific to read today from the Vatican News Agency that the Vatican is promoting an electronic smart-rosary available for $109. A most outrageous ecological-Liberation Theology blurb prefaced the release. In part:

“In a world of indifference and in the face of so many injustices, poverty, elementary rights denied, praying for peace in the world means reconciling ourselves in our daily relationships, with the poorest, with the stranger, with different cultures and spiritual and religious traditions, but also with our land, our forests, our rivers and oceans.”

The one behind all of this is taking a hint from the indigenous people of the Amazon who mask demons behind the Saints by using the holy rosary, a true Catholic devotion, as a vehicle to mask a radical environmentalist/Marxist agenda. There is an option for rosary themes including Laudato Si, migrants, and refugees! They focus on sales to young people.

St. Paul taught in Ephesians 6:12, “We do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in heavenly places.” Understanding this spiritual principle does not take away personal responsibility from those who are so obviously corrupting the faith. Spiritual wellbeing means choosing to forgive those who are against you. However, you do not trust or follow an evil army.

 

Clearing the Atmosphere

Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil… having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness…
~St. Paul, Ephesians 6:11,14

 

Nothing can clear the murky spiritual atmosphere fogging up your clear thinking faster than learning the truth about where you stand as Christians.  It worked for two disciples on the road to Emmaus immediately after the crucifixion.  They were in shock, devastated, at the brutal death.  Walking beside them without being recognized offered an opportunity to teach them the truths found in Moses and the Prophets.  Their comment to each other about this teaching on the road to Emmaus is a key for you now:

“Were not our hearts burning within us while he talked with us on the road and opened the Scriptures to us?”

God’s truth revealed in the Holy Scriptures is ageless. 


Girding Yourselves with the Truth

James reminds:  who you are and how you became Christians:

“In the exercise of His will He brought us forth by the word of truth,
so that we would be a kind of first fruits among His creatures.
~James 1:18

 

Faith in God is timeless; the same yesterday, today and tomorrow.  The disciples walking to Emmaus were among the very first fruits.  You were ages away from becoming a twinkle in your parents’ eyes then, but prayers had gone up to the Father for you just a few days before in the Garden of Gethsemane. Along with the disciples, by an exercise of will, you were brought forth by the Word of truth:

“I do not pray for these alone, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word; that they all may be one, as You, Father, are in Me, and I in You; that they also may be one in Us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.
~ John 16:20-21

These words are beautiful.  In this instance, it is important you know the words prayed just prior.  Those words  “gird” you with truth for spiritual combat:

” I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one.  They are not of the world, just as I am not of the world. Sanctify them by Your truth. Your word is truth.  As You sent Me into the world, I also have sent them into the world.  And for their sakes I sanctify Myself, that they also may be sanctified by the truth.”
~ John 16:15-19


James continues to help clear the atmosphere and hands you the sword of the spirit, the word of God:

“Therefore lay aside all filthiness and overflow of wickedness, and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls.”
~ James 1:21

A good example of  “receiving the word in humility” is the people of Nineveh’s reaction to Jonah when he landed on their shores from the belly of a whale.  He told them they had 40 days, or God would destroy them.  They put ashes on their heads, fasted and mourned before God to avert disaster.  (Jonah 3:1-10)

This past Monday throughout the Catholic world, faithful had an opportunity to read the Gospel of Luke and words repeating the Ninevites’ correct response to the Father’s warning through His servant Noah. The words in Luke were also preached in Matthew.  Once recorded to a crowd of listeners; another recorded to scribes and Pharisees- priests.  Some faithful are already answering the words of James, and Noah, by praying and fasting for the filthiness and overflow of wickedness from Rome reaching the universal Church to be cast down.  However, to those who are not, remember the words from this past Monday:

“The men of Nineveh will rise up in the judgment with this generation and condemn it, for they repented at the preaching of Jonah; and indeed a greater than Jonah is here.” (Luke 11:32)

 

 


…and his name was called the Word of God
~Revelation 19:13

 

Sister Faustina writes in her diary about a very distinct vision that can well describe the results of faithless shepherds leading trusting,  guileless sheep:

 

“…I saw two roads. One was broad, covered with sand and flowers, full of joy, music, and all sorts of pleasures. People were walking along it, dancing and enjoying themselves. They reached the end without realizing it. And at the end of the road, there was a horrible precipice; that is, the abyss of hell. The souls fell blindly into it; as they walked, so they fell. And their number was so great that it was impossible to count them. And I saw the other road, or rather, a path, for it, was narrow and strewn with thorns and rocks; and the people who walked along it had tears in their eyes, and all kinds of suffering befell them. Some fell down upon the rocks, but stood up immediately and went on. At the end of the road there was a magnificent garden filled with all sorts of happiness, and all these souls entered there. At the very first instant they forgot all their sufferings” (Diary, 153).

~Fragments from The Diary of St. Sr. Faustina

 


Beloved and Faithful Ones,

Thomas once said, “Lord, we do not know where you are going, and how can we know the way?” (John 14:5)

The hour had not come for the Church to become organized, but I gave them the same instructions that will carry you through this present turmoil:

 

“If you love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you. I will not leave you orphans; I will come to you.” (John 14:15-18)

 


But hold fast what you have till I come. And he who overcomes, and keeps My works until the end, to him I will give power over the nations—

‘He shall rule them with a rod of iron; They shall be dashed to pieces like the potter’s vessels’—as I also have received from My Father; I will give him the morning star.

 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.” ’

To the Corrupt Church – The Church of Thyatira ~ Revelation 2:25-29

Bergoglio declares to Scalafari: “I am the proof … that Jesus Christ was not God at all!”

 

Bergoglio declares to Scalafari: “I am the proof … that Jesus Christ was not God at all!”  – From Rome Blog

I first read this post on the blog From Rome at about 8 in the morning the day the article first hit the press in Rome.  I was horrified and disheartened, like Catholics around the world.  Later in the day, I checked online to find the story had been picked up all over the world.  Being an observant Catholic, I began to read different articles, watch various videos, and listen to podcasts.  No matter your thoughts on Francis, we are all witness to one fact. He personally is not denying his friend’s news article. This blog originates from Rome, and much can be gleaned from the website. They do not agree with the Sedevacantist point of view, but it is surprising to learn the difference! In Rome the talk was already about, could it be possible that the current pope was not valid, and Benedict is actually still on the seat of Peter?  From Rome is the best site I have found to understand that argument from a Catholic worldview.

via Bergoglio declares to Scalafari: “I am the proof … that Jesus Christ was not God at all!”

I double-checked.  As of 4PM, Sunday, there is still no denial directly from Pope Francis. We have only the bland statement issued from the Vatican Press office after every Scalarari article that turns faithful Catholics upside down.

Call a Spade a Spade, Paganism – Paganism

 

2113 Idolatry not only refers to false pagan worship. It remains a constant temptation to faith. Idolatry consists in divinizing what is not God. Man commits idolatry whenever he honors and reveres a creature in place of God, whether this be gods or demons (for example, satanism)
The Catechism of the Catholic Church

 


 

Watching the Pope wielding a spade in the Vatican Gardens while hosting a pagan ritual, leads me to think it is time to call a spade a spade, and paganism – paganism.  Let us not be deceived into thinking this pope and his cabal are unaware of what was launched against faithful Catholics in the past week – including the opening ceremony of the Amazon Synod.

Quick Refresher – Catechism of the Catholic Church

This quick refresher of what the Catholic Church really believes about what we are witnessing in Rome can keep us protected in the coming days. We can also remember what St. Paul told us in Ephesians 6:12. “For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.”

Idolatry

2112 The first commandment condemns polytheism. It requires man neither to believe in nor to venerate, other divinities than the one true God. Scripture constantly recalls this rejection of “idols, [of] silver and gold, the work of men’s hands. They have mouths, but do not speak; eyes, but do not see.” These empty idols make their worshippers empty: “Those who make them are like them; so are all who trust in them.” 42 God, however, is the “living God” 43 who gives life and intervenes in history.

Pachamama idol in Vatican Gardens

2113 Idolatry not only refers to false pagan worship. It remains a constant temptation to faith. Idolatry consists in divinizing what is not God. Man commits idolatry whenever he honors and reveres a creature in place of God, whether this be gods or demons (for example, satanism), power, pleasure, race, ancestors, the state, money, etc. Jesus says, “You cannot serve God and mammon.” 44 Many martyrs died for not adoring “the Beast” 45 refusing even to simulate such worship. Idolatry rejects the unique Lordship of God; it is therefore incompatible with communion with God. 46

2114 Human life finds its unity in the adoration of the one God. The commandment to worship the Lord alone integrates man and saves him from an endless disintegration. Idolatry is a perversion of man’s innate religious sense. An idolater is someone who “transfers his indestructible notion of God to anything other than God.” 47

Observations about Amazon Synod Opening Ceremony

Official word came from the Vatican press office explaining what was on the agenda for the opening.  In brief:

Worshipping the Pachamama (Earth Mother) idol in the Vatican Garden

Therefore, on 4 October, in the Vatican Gardens, in the presence of the Holy Father, the heads of the indigenous populations and representatives of the Church, a tree – a holm oak from Assisi – will be planted as a visible sign of integral ecology.

The event, organized by the Order of Friars Minor, the World Catholic Movement for Climate (GCCM) and REPAM (Pan-Amazonian Ecclesial Network) is intended to communicate the importance of the Season of Creation, since this is Pope Francis’ first visible gesture following his invitation to the Church worldwide to celebrate this period of prayer and more intense action for the benefit of the common home…

In the Vatican Gardens, a prayer of consecration of the Synod to the intercession of Saint Francis will be recited, in the hope that this process will lead to discernment of new ways for the Church and for an integral ecology in this key region for the world.

 

Unsuspecting Catholic faithful …

Little did unsuspecting Catholic faithful know what celebrating the “Season of Creation” in the Vatican Garden would entail. After viewing the ceremony, Catholic Monitor gave a report saying –

The meaning of the Vatican ritual was apparently a type of pagan fertility ceremony (the two indigenous pagan statues of naked pregnant women) as well as a ceremony for a witch doctor or shaman “to invoke… [pagan] animal spirits and helping spirits.”

…”Participants sang and held hands while dancing in a circle around the images. The dance resembled the pago a la tierra, a traditional offering to Mother Earth common among indigenous peoples in some parts of South America. No explanation was provided by the event organizers as to why the dance was performed for the feast of St. Francis or what it symbolized.”

I noticed in this link to the pago a la tierra that they bring in Shamans (a witch doctor or a witch) because they are exceptionally knowledgeable when it comes to speaking with the Pachamama and the Apus, the spirits (aka demons) of the mountains.  It is obvious the Order of Friars Minor, World Catholic Movement for Climate (GCCM), and REPAM (a network of CATHOLIC churches), all members of the committee, totally disregard primary Catholic teaching. (See paragraph 2113 above from Catechism.) Their actions bring a Scripture to mind, “For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry…” ~I Samuel 15:23

However, what should be concerning to observant Catholics is that according to a report on Crisis Magazine, this type of ritual is no surprise to the bishops coming from that area. Nor is this the first time no explanation is given for their participation and assent to it.  For example:

Another rite of “indigenous mysticism” took place at a pre-synodal meeting of bishops gathered around Cardinal Hummes’s group, the Pan-Amazonian Ecclesial Network (REPAM), which organized both the Vatican gardens ceremony and the synod. One commentator claimed that the synodal fathers “expect the [ceremonial] broth to be hot enough to ingest, in a kind of communion with the Pachamama.” In August, at another preparatory meeting for the synod, a Colombian shaman “blessed” the religious present. (In Crisis Magazine article)

Following the “One Commentator claimed” link above, I came across more of the story about not giving an explanation on the pagan celebration:

At the time, they gave no explanation about that celebration. Many naive people understood it as an “ecumenical opening” in relation to peoples still mired in pagan ignorance.

However, that “opening” is not really an “ecumenical” strategy to convert indigenous peoples, but precisely the opposite. It is about “converting” a growing number of members of the Catholic hierarchy to the worldview of “Pachamama” or “Mother Earth.”

The website where that comment is found is precious for concerned Catholics to visit to learn more about the real intent of the Amazon Synod.  It is published by Pan-Amazon Synod Watch, an international campaign of the Plinio Corrêa de Oliveira Institute (IPCO) and its sister organizations, the Societies for the Defense of Tradition, Family, and Property (TFP) and related entities present in more than 30 countries. They constitute the broadest coalition of associations in defense of Christian civilization. I visited it for the first time several months ago, and the wealth of background information found there is fantastic.

 


Perverting the Faith

Click to be linked to Lifesite News and this podcast.

It was initially said that the two idols (Pachamamas) facing each other were some type of enactment of the Visitation by the Blessed Mother to St. Elizabeth. Such a cruel mockery of the second of the Joyful Mysteries of the Rosary.  What a crafty way to mask demonic entities behind Saints and ensnare those who are pure and have deep love and respect for the Mother of Our Saviour, Son of the One True God! Let us pray that guileless Catholics are not taken in by such deception.

There is an article on Lifesite News with an interview from a young man who is an ex-shaman’s grandson.  He was appalled when he saw a video of the Amazonian religious ceremony that took place in the Vatican last Friday. He recognized precisely what was happening and the real evil intent behind it. His insight is beyond the idols.  He takes the bishops to task for not evangelizing, yet his desire is for the Amazonian indigenous.  His hope is for them to accept salvation, just as his shaman grandfather accepted Christ.  Really interesting.

“I wish the indigenous people of the Amazon could hear something similar to what the indigenous Igorots heard from Pope John Paul II when he visited the Philippine Cordillera mountains in 1981,” Delson said.

“After mentioning each tribe, he expressed praise, appreciation, and compassion for our culture, he ended with ‘Yet in all this, the Church never forgets the primacy of her spiritual mission, remembering that her ultimate goal is to lead all men and women to eternal salvation in Christ’,” Delson recalled.

Mutual Enrichment via demon worship: Are you ready to choose a side yet?

Pass along!

non veni pacem

Today, paganism and demon worship took place inside the Vatican, and of course there is video. Presiding over the affair was antipope Bergoglio. The video is embedded in the first tweet below, and then there are some close-ups of the idols farther down.

But first, some advice from Saint Paul:

Wherefore, my dearly beloved, fly from the service of idols. I speak as to wise men: judge ye yourselves what I say. The chalice of benediction which we bless, is it not the communion of the blood of Christ? And the bread which we break, is it not the partaking of the body of the Lord? For we, being many, are one bread, one body: all that partake of one bread. Behold Israel according to the flesh. Are not they that eat of the sacrifices partakers of the altar? What then? Do I say that what is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing?…

A Stang is a witch/warlock’s ceremonial staff. -Ann Barnhardt Blog

 

When Francis Carried a Stang into Mass at Last Year’s Synod Opening Mass

 

“The Stang signifies several things, the first being a satan himself.”

I’m sharing this information for those hearing for the first time about the alarm that went up last year when the pope carried a stang into the opening Mass of the Synod in Rome. As I said in the first blog on this website, revelations of what is taking place in today’s Catholic Church have brought onered pill” after another.  One dose came last year just before the Synod on Youth and Family held in Rome. Two young Italians gave a stang to the pope in August. He met them at the Circo Massimo, where they gave him a stang and said they hoped he’d use it at the synod’s opening Mass.  I assumed, like many others, that he accepted the item to be polite.  However, when he showed up carrying it at the opening Mass, alarm bells started going off among the faithful. Browsing the web for a stang picture of the pope from last year, I found one attached to an article explaining the pagan link to the presenters. It was located on a favorite site for accurate information –  Abbyssum.org by Rene Henry Gracida, Bishop Emeritus of the Diocese of Corpus Christi. Bishop Gracia led me to another Catholic resource – Ann Barnhardt.  Others before us, including Bishop Gracia, have been observing the antics of Bergolio closely for years and have drawn their own conclusions about his papacy. That is not the red pill I’m talking about in this post, The red pill I am talking about is satanic activity making its way into the Church.  Bishop Gracia shared Ann’s information on what identifies the giver of the stang as Wiccan:

Wiccan Stang Given to Antipope Bergoglio By Woman Wearing Wiccan Red String Bracelet

https://abyssum.org/2018/10/06/35289/


Ann Barnhard’s blog seems to be the one that first had in-depth identification of the stang as a pagan tool.  So many other faithful Catholics mentioned this post.  I’ll share a bit here, but take some time to read it.

One thing you’ll find as you begin to wade through the different resources I supply is that faithful Catholics come in various stages.  Fourteen months ago, we were more conservative, traditional, or sedevacantist.  Over the past year, changes among the faithful as they acquire more knowledge have been happening at a fantastic rate. I’ve been watching as conservative Catholics become more traditional, and traditional Catholics draw closer to the sedevacantist Catholics (those who believe the last true Pope was Pius XII) in the idea that the current seat of the pope is vacant. Some Traditional Catholics believe Francis is an anti-pope.  Others are drawing closer to the same conclusion daily.   We are one church – different clans!

Ann’s post:  Satanists Manifesting: Antipope Bergoglio Carries a Stang – the Ritual Staff of Witchcraft

A Stang is a witch/warlock’s ceremonial staff.  It is always forked, and always has an iron nail driven through it. Ideally, it has a human form carved or integrated into it somehow.  The Stang signifies several things, the first being a satan himself.  Read the quote below from a witchcraft blog:

“Gary describes the Stang as primarily a symbolic tool rather than a working one, and as such it stands in for the Devil himself, holding his power and his dual nature. The Devil and the Stang is often less about strict duality  and more about the transgressing of boundaries, The Devil being a spirit I often think of as non-binary and difficult to define in terms of absolutes.”


No one could imagine we would witness a pagan rite for the opening ceremony of this year’s synod. Perhaps last year’s pagan stang was just the beginning of Francis ushering in satanic rituals among the faithful flock of Christ.

 


“But when the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the angels with Him, then He will sit on His glorious throne. 32 All the nations will be gathered before Him; and He will separate them from one another, as the shepherd separates the sheep from the goats; 33 and He will put the sheep on His right, and the goats on the left…These will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.” – Jesus (Matthew 25:31-32,46)
