COP26: Should Scots Bishops Refuse Pro-Abort President Biden Holy Communion? 

From Flourish – official publication of the Archdiocese of Glasgow…
Is Glasgow set to host Pope’s plea for planet? 

The future of the planet and the welfare of the world’s inhabitants – these are the issues facing world leaders as they come to Glasgow later this year for the UN Climate Change Conference known as COP26. And among them could be Pope Francis.

The Holy Father’s concern for ecological issues is well-known and he has devoted a whole encyclical to them – Laudato Si. It emerged last month that consideration was being given to a possible Papal presence at the talks which are scheduled for early November at the SEC

The COP26 summit will bring world leaders including Presidents Biden and Macron together to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change and is considered the most important such gathering in recent history due to the enormity of the issues being discussed.

Any papal visit would be short and would not involve public ceremonies or Masses, but rather a direct intervention by the Holy Father on the issue of climate change to the assembled.

The Pope has made these kinds of one day visits before when he flew to France to address the European Parliament in Strasbourg and to Switzer- land to mark the 70th anniversary of the World Council of Churches. Both of these were one-day round trips.

All countries signed up to the UN Framework Convention of Climate Change are entitled to attend the Glasgow event, including the Holy See, which has UN observer status. Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Vatican’s Secretary of State and most senior diplomat, has led the Holy See’s delegations at previous summits.

Speaking to diplomats in the Vatican earlier this year, the Holy Father explicitly highlighted the importance of the Glasgow summit. He said he hoped that “the next United Nations Climate Change Conference to take place in Glasgow next November, will lead to effective agreement in addressing the consequences of climate change. Now is the time to act, for we are already feeling the effects of prolonged inaction.”

A Bishops’ Conference working group, chaired by Bishop Bill Nolan of Galloway has been in place since last year to plan for the event. Already a series of preparations are underway:

A Mass for visiting delegates will be at St Aloysius on Sunday, November 7 at 3pm

Schools across Scotland will study and put into action the insights of Laudato Si through special events and there will also be a “season of creation” theme in September.

The Bishops of Scotland plan a pastoral letter to sensitize people in late spring ahead of the UN Conference.

Mgr Hugh Bradley, Archdiocesan Administrator, said: “We would love to have the Holy Father in Glasgow, even if only for a few hours, and we hope and pray that we may have a new Archbishop in place to welcome him to the Dear Green place.  Click here to read above report at source…

Comment: 

It will be unconscionable if – prior to the Mass to be provided for those attending the Climate Change Conference – the Bishops of Scotland do not make clear that Canon Law #915 is invoked, and that, therefore,  no-one who is a known public supporter of abortion (or in any other way causing public scandal) may approach for Holy Communion.   Is this likely, thinkest thou, or will the Bishops weakly ignore the issue?  Joe Biden makes no secret of his support for abortion right up to and after birth – infanticide. The Bishops cannot remain silent on this – they must act in plenty of time to avoid the danger of sacrilege.  Their duty is to avoid causing offence to God – not to President Biden. 

And what about the UN choosing Glasgow for a conference on climate change?  If a visit to Scotland in November doesn’t cure them of worrying about global warming, nothing will 😀

Covid Lockdowns to Climate Lockdowns…


Comment: 

Rowan Dean, of Sky News Australia, shows up the inexcusable ignorance of the UK press for peddling the lie that The Great Reset of the world, planned by the elite at the World Economic Forum (and other outfits with “World” in their titles)  is nothing more than a conspiracy theory. 

It’s inexcusable because we can see what  happens when  journalists and reporters fail to  do what they’re  supposed to do, which is to challenge and investigate. Who has challenged the Government’s authoritarian behaviour this past year?  Who has seriously examined the Covid data – apart from our own Athanasius/Martin Blackshaw? I stopped watching the daily press briefings  because the questions were always the same, floor level “challenges”: “When will there be more testing?”  “Why can’t nursing homes have more PPE” and other stuff which could have been asked and answered via email. 

As a result of this weak press pack, the populations across the UK have gone along, apparently unthinkingly, believing the Covid propaganda as they appear to believe the climate propaganda.  Which is why it will be a breeze for politicians to keep us under control and locked down, living under ridiculous restrictions, for as long as they choose. They don’t look like dictators, which is why they can’t possibly be dictators… They’re doing all of this dictatorial stuff because they care about us – get it? 

So, well done Rowan Dean for calling out the Guardian journalist for her massive and inexcusable ignorance.  There is a growing  awareness of The Great Rest in the population, but it’s no thanks to the media. Word of mouth, online mostly, and information given out at the few public protest rallies here and there, mostly, it seems, in London. 

Importantly, Rowan updates us on the World Economic Forum (WEF) plans to mimic the “success” of Covid lockdowns by using them in the pursuit of the climate change agenda.   

Is there a bishops anywhere who is going to call out this baloney for what it is?  Not the Bishop of Rome, obviously – he’s now part of the propaganda machine – but what about the other successors of the apostles: do any of them remember Christ’s exhortation to not worry about the environment, that not  even a sparrow falls from a tree to the ground but God the Father knows it and will take care of us, that we are not to spend our lives worrying about tomorrow, for tomorrow will take care of itself? 

One way or another, we are not going to get our freedoms back for the foreseeable future. That’s been clear for a very long time now. Perhaps you disagree?  Let’s hear it…

Is Pontiff Contradicting Scripture When He Warns of a Second Great Flood? 

ROME — Pope Francis has warned of the possibility of a second great flood, like that of Noah’s time, if humanity fails to address global warming.
Ed: well, that’s not what it says in the Bible. God explicitly rules out destroying the world by flood again, and even sets His rainbow in the sky as a reminder of this agreement – this covenant –  between Him and the earth (Genesis 9:13)    

“God’s wrath is directed against injustice, against Satan,” the pope states in a book titled Of Vices and Virtues due for release Tuesday. “It is  directed  against evil, not that which derives from human weakness, but evil of Satanic inspiration: the corruption generated by Satan.”
Ed: so Satan doesn’t use our human weakness to tempt us to sin – for which we, individually, are  ultimately responsible?  Somebody should have told CS Lewis  – would have saved him wasting time writing that book about the Devil doing exactly that…

“God’s wrath is meant to bring justice, to ‘clean up,’” the pontiff declares in an advance excerpt of the book published by the Italian daily Corriere della Sera Sunday.

“The Bible says that the flood is the result of God’s wrath,” Francis continues. “It is a figure of God’s wrath, who according to the Bible has seen too many bad things and decides to obliterate humanity.”

“The biblical flood, according to experts, is a mythical tale,” the pope states, parenthetically adding his hope that no one writes that “the pope says the Bible is a myth.”

“But myth is a form of knowledge,” he says. “The flood is a historical tale, archaeologists say, because they found traces of a flood in their excavations.”
Ed: oh, well, if archaeologists say it, it must be true.  Actually, one of the gems I’ve never forgotten from my visit to the Holy Land many years ago now, is this:  that every single archaeological discovery made in the Holy Land confirms what we read in Scripture.  To date, I’ve yet to hear the opposite. For a minute there, I thought that was about to change with Papa Francis bandying around that favourite term of the pseudo-scripture scholars- “myth”.   Thankfully, it seems his rambling has led him to the correct conclusion, for once. History has been made, she said, tongue-in-cheek…

“A great flood, perhaps due to a rise in temperature and the melting of the glaciers, is what will happen now if we continue along the same path,” the pope warns.
Ed: if only you would display half as much faith in divine revelation – including  the account of the Great Flood – as you do to Greta Thunberg’s nonsense, you would know that God has promised never to destroy the world by water again – Read Genesis 9:1-17.  Soon. 

“God unleashed his wrath, but he saw a righteous one, took him and saved him,” he says. “The story of Noah demonstrates that God’s wrath is also  alvific.”   

The pope’s new book recounts conversations between the pontiff and Father Marco Pozza, chaplain of the prison of Padua in the north of Italy.

Francis has made care for the environment and opposition to climate change a hallmark of his almost eight-year pontificate, taking to task world leaders who have shown too little resolve in their battle against global warming.
Ed: pity that isn’t his remit.  His remit is to preach Christ, and Him Crucified – not to peddle pseudo-scientific propaganda.

He said last year that it is “evident” that climate change is to blame for a number of humanity’s social ills, as well as disrupting the balance of nature.
Ed: gimme strength.

“It is evident that climate change not only upsets the balance of nature, but causes poverty and hunger, affects the most vulnerable, and sometimes forces them to leave their land,” the pope told a group gathered in the Vatican.
Ed: as intimated above, if this pope would spend half the time reading solid Catholic literature – starting with the Book of Genesis  – that he spends reading climate propaganda, we might begin to hear something from him that points the world to God. Right now, he comes across as merely another climate activist, thus bringing the papal office into disrepute. 

The pope’s audience consisted of participants in a meeting of members of the Laudato Sì community, named after the pontiff’s 2015 encyclical letter on the environment, which bears the same name.
Ed: preaching to the already converted, then. That’s fine.  Keep it that way – the rest of us are not remotely interested. 

“We need a real will to tackle the root causes of the ongoing climate upheavals,” Francis insisted. “Generic commitments are not enough — words, words.”     Source
Ed: well, er… isn’t that what you’ve just done – thrown out some more words, words, words…  What do you want us all to do – stop attending churches (if they ever reopen) to save electricity?  Cancel all choirs, to avoid polluting the air?  What then? 

Comments invited…   

Is Climate Change The New Religion? 

Comment:

The new Biden administration in the USA is putting climate change centre-stage again, and we’re being told, here in the UK,  that once we are successful in suppressing “the virus” (mission impossible) we will have to continue living a seriously restricted lifestyle, including the continued wearing of face marks, to prevent the dire consequences of climate change. So,  is Alan Jones right?  Is the alleged climate science intellectual rubbish, with the alarmist focus turning it into, effectively, a new religion?   A “new religion” note, which has been welcomed by Pope Francis. Or is it nothing more serious than the annoying obsession of a few tree-hugging activists who peddle their propaganda in place of true religion?   

Pope: I’m Not A Communist – Honest! 

Comment: 

The above video dates from 2015.  Questions were being raised even back then… and – in fact – from the day of Pope Francis’s election in 2013.  His “leftish” leaning was obvious from the get-go.  So, while he skirts, so to speak, the question about the papal red shoes, he cannot, quite so easily, conceal his modernism.  There are plenty of modernists reciting (without conscience) the Creed, some on a daily basis, so that particular reassurance is a bit like promising to take out a home insurance policy the day after you’ve been burgled. 

Anyway,  Pope Francis seems [albeit a tad weakly]  to deny the charge of “leftism”/Communism…

Are you convinced?    

Biden’s Agenda: Build Back Backwards! 

Comment: 

The above overview of the Biden administration so far, requires no further comment here. Far from moving America forward, The Man Who  Stole America is taking the United States back in time… big time! 

Diamond and Silk mention, among other things, the Biden return to the evil pro-abortion policies of the Obama/Biden years – there is a separate thread on the push for abortion in the new administration  here

So, true or false… IS Biden’s agenda to build back backwards? 

What’s Wrong With The World? Climate Change? Nope… I am! – GK Chesterton…

Comment: 

Enjoy the above excellent talk by Irish priest, Father David Sherry, SSPX, Superior of the District of Canada. At 46 minutes, it’s a bit longer than we usually post, but well worth watching right through. 

Father Sherry served in the Scottish SSPX churches for a while (not long enough!) soon after his ordination. As evident in the above talk, this is one priest who knows how to teach difficult concepts very simply and clearly.  It’s a real gift. 

Having had the pleasure of many conversations with Father Sherry, I’m confident that he won’t mind if I make a debatable point up front. 

Firstly, I’ve noticed for a while that the SSPX clergy in general do not speak much in sermons about Fatima. At this point in time, it is my belief that Our Lady’s warnings in 1917 should be at the forefront of every Catholic mind in the world, all the time.  There is just no other event in recent history which matches the Fatima apparitions and subsequent apparitions to Sr Lucia. Father Nicholas Gruner RIP – “the Fatima priest” – would often describe Fatima as the single most important event in the twentieth century.  Thus, it is a little surprising to hear Father Sherry say, in an oblique reference to Fatima,  that he “thinks” the Church will be restored through the triumph of the Immaculate Heart. 

I’m not sure why priests appear to be reluctant to speak about Fatima because it’s as clear as the day is long that those prophecies are unfolding before our very eyes – goodness, the three child-seers reported Our Lady’s warning that Communism would spread from Russia before Communism was established in Russia!  And it’s spreading like wildfire across the world right now. It’s already arrived here in the UK.  It’s the easiest of all apparitions to explain:  two of the three seers are already canonised – and they were able to reveal that Our Lady had affirmed Catholic dogmas from papal authority to the reality of Hell, by letting them actually see the tormented souls in Hell. There was a public miracle, witnessed by over 70,000 people and reported – with photographs of the massive crowd – in the local newspapers at the time. Atheists converted on the spot. 

It is a little puzzling, then, that priests don’t seem to have Fatima at the front of their minds in preaching and in conversations.  In the case of Fr Sherry, I know it can’t be for lack of belief in the apparitions – he gladly attended our Fatima Conference some years ago when we had the privilege of welcoming Father Gruner RIP to address a Catholic Truth audience and I have heard him speak of the apparitions, with conviction.  I’m sure there will be other videos in which Fr Sherry does, in fact, speak of Fatima, but  should not  the Fatima Message be right at the forefront of all Catholic minds today, and shouldn’t we – priests especially – never assume that we are speaking to the already converted or informed? Repetition is the mother of education, as the saying goes…

Maybe our commentators will disagree – share your thoughts on that, but don’t forget, either, to comment on the excellence of the information in the above video, not to mention Father Sherry’s superb professional delivery – he is a natural communicator and a first class teacher.  

I’ll send the link to this thread to Father Sherry, so if I disappear without explanation, start a crowd-funding campaign to pay the ransom 😀 

Authoritarian UK Governments Are Recruiting Child-Spies: Criminal Surely? 

Comment:

I mean, just how much further down the road to outright tyranny must we go before the majority of people inside and outside Parliament waken up to the truth about “the virus”?  Maybe if someone leaves a trail of beans from Westminster (and the other centres of Government in Edinburgh, Cardiff and Belfast) all the way to China, then the penny will drop. 

There’s just no explaining the blindness around us – except in supernatural terms.  We are living through the prophesied – at Fatimadiabolical disorientation, when everything in the world and the Church is upside down; the old order is being crushed and a “new normal” established, where our freedoms have been permanently removed. 

God will intervene in due course – once we have been sufficiently chastened and turned back to Him.  In the meantime, we need to pray, to live the Fatima Message as it applies to us, and keep watch, so that we are alert to the reality of the evil engulfing us. Let’s also do our best to alert others to what amounts to criminal behaviour by the UK Governments.

If you disagree that the recruitment of children to spy on their parents is criminal, tell us so and explain… how would you describe it?  How can it be justified?  

The Great Reset & The Disgraceful, Inexcusable Ignorance of Politicians…

The Great Reset will undeniably and deliberately have extreme and possibly dire repercussions”. “‘You’ll own nothing, and you’ll be happy’ is just one of their marketing slogans”…  (Rowan Dean, Outsiders.)

Comment: 

Is it possible, or likely, that our politicians are going along with the Covid-19 lockdowns and restrictions because they actually do not know about the World Economic Forum Great Reset plan to introduce totalitarian governance around the world? Could it be that they really don’t recognise the fact that we are being programmed to obey Government diktats, using “the virus” for practice?  Is it actually possible that the politicians across the UK are every bit as ignorant as Jacqui Lambi, the Australian Parliamentarian featured in the above video?  Given that the information is freely and widely available across the internet – beginning with the World Economic Forum’s own website – there is no excuse whatsoever for the continued idiocy of treating all talk of The Great Reset as a mere “conspiracy theory”. 

As an aside, I repeat my oft-voiced opinion that the person who dreamt up that term has to be the cleverest person in the world – a top class genius – because it shuts down all discussion and prevents investigation into anything.  Just dismiss something (say election fraud in the USA)  as a “conspiracy theory” and the problem goes away.  Well, in most cases 😀  In short, there’s certainly a conspiracy surrounding The Great Reset but there’s nothing theoretical about it.  

Sincere thanks to Rowan Dean for his concise and accurate presentation of the facts; it may be worth emailing this video, if not the entire discussion thread, to your local and national politicians.  They should have no excuse in the future to claim such ignorance.  Jacqui Lambi, gerragrip!

Governments Bribed To Create Covid Panic – NOT A Conspiracy Theory…

Comment: 

The above video is spectacular in its exposé of the truth about the pandemic – clearly the Irish Government is no different from the governments of the UK in its crackdown on the civil liberties of the people of Ireland.  In every respect, Dave Cullen’s video is first class.  Supported by facts and figures, he confirms what we’ve discussed on this blog many times, that this pandemic is, in fact, a “scamdemic”, engineered by the “powers-that-be” who want to achieve a  de-populated, “greener” world – by fair means or foul. Bribery seems to have been one method used to get world governments to impose their Covid-19 panic and restrictions. It’s by no means unusual for conditions to be attached to loans, of course, so the term “bribe” is likely to be rejected on that basis.  In any event, whether “conditions” or “bribes” it’s murky stuff.  Dave Cullen highlights the claim made by the President of Belarus…

FROM ARMSTRONG ECONOMICS…

Belarus President Aleksandr Lukashenko REFUSED the offer and stated that he could not accept such an offer and would put his people above the needs of the IMF and World Bank. This is NOT a conspiracy. You may research this yourself. He actually said this!

Now IMF and World Bank are bailing out failing airlines with billions of dollars, and in exchange, they are FORCING airline CEOs to implement VERY STRICT POLICIES such as FORCED face masks covers on EVERYONE, including SMALL CHILDREN, whose health will suffer as a result of these policies.

And if it is true for Belarus, then it is true for the rest of the world! The IMF and World Bank want to crash every major economy with the intent of buying over every nation’s infrastructure at cents on the dollar!   Source – Armstrong Economics

Consider…

Is anyone really surprised at the idea of international bodies bribing Governments or, given what we know of the characters of our political leaders, that they might find such bribery – or “conditions” –  acceptable?
