Meanwhile, as temporal, narcissistic deviancy flourishes among the clergy of the Catholic Church, a program of normalization has begun throughout the Catholic hierarchy. This systematic, piecemeal engineering is designed to avoid approaching a modernist "correction" or "reform" of doctrine or dogma.
Masked in the disguise of pastoral ecumenism, Pope Francis, the St. Gallen Mafia, and all Jewish and Freemasonic-friendly forces who've embeded themselves into the Church intend to attack the institution of the family itself and normalize degenerate sexual behavior, putting an end to the Catholic Church as you recognize it.
This new cadre of rebels and destroyers may as well parrot the Catholic-hating Thomas Jefferson, who once opined that if the Christian religion is to maintain its ground, then true Catholicism, "which has prevailed for fifteen hundred years, has received a mortal wound, of which the monster must finally die." Ladies and gentlemen, we are being sold out to our enemies. The powers that be would rather have us act as Americanist Unitarians than Catholics.
In his book Pope Francis in Context, E. Michael Jones supposes that a great split in the Church was created at the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI. Of course, many of us in the know consider that split to have occurred at the Second Vatican Council which took place from 1962-1965. And so, it seems that we have a group of holdouts--priest and laity--who are doing their best to hold onto the Tradition of the past. As Bishop Williamson would say, we are trying to keep a pilot light on through this present darkness.
This act of speaking about a Church vs a Counterfeit Church brings us into the territory of Catholic prophets who speak of "a false church," as Emmerich calls it. As Our Lady of Good Success said, it now seems that we are being weekly scandalized by "enormous public and hidden sacrileges," and the sacrament of Matrimony, which symbolizes the union of Christ with the Church" is being thoroughly attacked and profaned.
As Hilary White stated this May, now that Pope Francis has served as a sledgehammer for pulverizing major chunks of the Catholic world, there is now knife work to be done. It may be that the next leader of this Leftist movement will pull out a scalpel to cut away all goodness from the Catholic brand:
"But the problem the Revolutionaries have is that there are still people around like us. The little guys out here in the big and little pockets of resistance. People like Matthew Festing and the Professed Knights of Malta, the Franciscans of the Immaculate, the Norcia monks, the Anglican Ordinariates, the London and Toronto Oratories, the parish of St. John Cantius, the Norbertines in California and the Augustinians in Lagrasse, the FSSP, Bon Pasteur, and the ICK. There are certain bishops of the JPII/Benedict 'old guard' all over Europe, the Americas and Asia who have influence and who have and continue to attract many 'conservative' young vocations. There’s noisy guys like Cardinal Zen and quiet ones like Bishops Laun, Rey and Jugis.
"There are the 'new conservative' religious orders of the JPII era, and the holdouts who refused to go along in the first place, like the Rosano nuns in Tuscany - more or less the only women’s monastery in the country who kept the Latin monastic Divine Office and have 60 nuns and flocks of vocations to show for it. There are some like Heiligenkreuz Abbey, who tried the Vaticantwoist proposal for a while and decided it was better to go in reverse. There are pockets of resistance among the Dominicans. There’s the little start-ups, new communities in formation, the Benedictine houses like Gower, Missouri and Silverstream in Ireland, and those little independents who were founded locally in hope and who want to adopt habits, common life, even the traditional liturgical forms. There are the Benedictines whom everyone knows are counterrevolutionaries: Fontgombault, Le Barroux, Kergonan and Jouques, Clear Creek and St. Cecelia’s in Ryde. And of course, there’s all those Carmelites and Poor Clares praying and praying without cease.
"Going down a few levels there are publishing houses, think tanks and university rectors, liberal arts colleges and postgraduate study centres. There are pro-life organizations, scouting groups and adoration societies, Chesterton Societies, young adult groups and Legion of Mary chapters, all that might be termed the 'civic society' of the Church, laity acting in accordance with their state in life.
"And then, there’s Summorum Pontificum, that turned out to be a bigger problem than anticipated: sitting there in the bright sun, digging its roots deeper and deeper every day, flourishing and sending out shoots and vines and flowers that are rapidly developing into fruit.
"There’s all that to think about. And for that one doesn’t need a wrecking ball. One requires a Surgeon."I imagine that what the entire Catholic world shall now live through will be something akin to what happened in Recusant England. Silver-haired Novus Ordo dupes will laugh and guffaw with their liberal bishops, as the latter joke about mundane things. And if any trace of the Right-leaning Traditionalists pop their heads up, the zombie class will uniformly turn their collective faces towards us, and rush at us to eat us alive. We will be exposed, doxxed, disemployed, called out, and shamed.
Daring to continue to even blog about this will put a target on you. I'd say give it five years.
If there is to be Traditional Mass said anywhere, it will be hidden and unannounced in official diocesan bulletins. And should the time come for good priests to suffer persecution, we will begin to witness the phenomenon of priest hiding holes in Catholic homes for when the authorities come to shake us down.
Our primary strength will remain, not with the secular clergy, but as Our Lady of Good Success stated:
"Religious communities will remain to sustain the Church and work with courage for the salvation of souls.… The secular clergy will fall far short of what is expected of them because they will not pursue their sacred duty. Losing the divine compass, they will stray from the way of priestly ministry mapped out for them by God and will become devoted to money, seeking it too earnestly."I believe that the monster birthed during Vatican II is advancing beyond its larval stage, and a catalyst has been introduced to grow the "modernist virus" at a rapid rate. Many of us have braced for this period. Most have no idea about what's going to happen.
Fortunately for us, however, the difficult years of turmoil and confusion have educated and hardened us. We have become Mithridatized against poisonous harm that would otherwise slay previous, more tender generations. The few strong Catholics that remain are inoculated to a degree, as we have been exposed to one small dose of poison at a time.
We will hold the line and keep the fire lit.
