Cardinal Schönborn opened his blasphemous November 30 homosex showin Vienna Cathedral with a blasphemous reference to a “miracle.”
He confessed that it “touched me very much”, “I hope it will also touch you.”
The “miracle” turned out to be a homosexual fairy tale, presented by the female Austrian oligarch journalist Chris Lohner.
According to Schönborn/Lohner two men were bound naked on a tree and left to die in 1256 in Montevergine, Italy, for having practiced homosexual fornication.
Yet, “Our Lady” sent shafts of sunlight to warm them and freed them miraculously. The people were “moved” by this and accepted the homosexuals.
This fairy tale is not Christian but refers to practices originating in the cult of the goddess Cybele and to pagan priests emasculating themselves as a sacrifice for Cybele.
The Abbot of Montevergine has repeatedly opposed the exploitation of this sanctuary for homosex propaganda.
Three days after the homosex show, Schönborn was hospitalised on December 3, as an emergency, and had to cancel all appointments until Christmas. He is said to have suffered a pulmonary embolism. In March he was treated for prostate cancer.
ENGLAND, November 4, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – The Catholic diocese of Salford in north-west England has become the latest of multiple Catholic dioceses around the United Kingdom to begin hosting “LGBT+ Masses.” In Salford, as in the other dioceses, the LGBT+ Masses enjoy the support of their respective local bishops.
Advertisements for the Masses have become widely available in churches and on various official parish and diocesan websites. Many of these advertisements are emblazoned with the rainbow flag or popular Catholic images such as crosses or the Sacred Heart filled with the rainbow colours. Several of the groups involved in organizing these Masses take part in their local homosexual “pride” events.
In none of the advertisements or official publications about these Masses is the Catholic Church’s authoritative, constant teaching that homosexual sexual acts are inherently sinful made clear…
…This increase in LGBT+ Masses around the country has been welcomed by LGBT+ Catholics Westminster. This group has enjoyed the long-term support of Cardinal Vincent Nichols, who is both their local ordinary and the senior Catholic cleric in England. In March of this year, the group were given privileged seats at a papal audience in St Peter’s Square, Rome, after which they were invited to meet and take photographs with Pope Francis. They were introduced to Pope Francis by Martin Pendergrast, an ex-priest who has been in a civil union with Julian Filochowski, the former head of Cafod, since 2006…
…The diocese of Salford is the latest diocese in England to initiate an LGBT+ Mass — hosting its first such Mass on October 12 at Holy NameChurch in Manchester. On Sunday, October 6, Bishop Arnold publicised the Mass on the BBC Radio 4 Sunday morning programme Sounds.
In an email sent to the clergy of his diocese, Bishop Arnold reported his satisfaction with the event:
Thanks, I think, to good planning and organisation, the LGBT Mass went very well, and better than expected. The atmosphere was very good and the comments of people as they left were unanimously encouraging. There were something like 300 people there, a congregation which included family and friends and others who simply came along because they thought it was an important occasion. We must see now what the organisers might want to plan for the future. While it is good to recognise the needs of the group, it is also important not to organise things in such a way as to isolate them from parish life. There were just two voices of dissent present at the Mass and their discourtesy rather bankrupted the value of any statement that they might have wanted to make. My thanks to the Jesuit community who hosted the event at the Holy Name and to all who contributed to the occasion.
In the diocese of Clifton, an “LGBT+ Mass” began in March this year at the parish of St Nicholas of Tolentino in Bristol. The parish website makes clear that the Mass is happening at the request of Bishop Declan Lang, the local ordinary.
“Bishop Declan wishes to express pastoral care and concern for our Catholic LGBT+ community and so has asked St Nicholas of Tolentino Church to celebrate a series of Masses for this community and their friends and family and all who wish to take part.” The same website also displays an image of a sculpture of Our Lord’s Sacred Heart, crowned with a cross, and painted in the colours of the rainbow flag. The parish promotes its Mass with a poster that includes an image of a cross filled with rainbow colours.
The Masses are also being advertised on the official diocesan website.
Please visit the Lifesitenews page here to read the entire report and see ALL of the photos and read about the bishops who, like those above, are manifestly steeped in evil … namely…
Bishop Peter Doyle, diocese of Northampton
Bishop Patrick McKinney, Nottingham
Bishop Terry Drainey, diocese of Middlesbrough
Cardinal Vincent Nichols, archdiocese of Westminster
On a recent thread, we discussed the fact that England has “many” exorcists. Little wonder. The English hierarchy has become more and more brazen in its support for the grave LGBT+ sin. The bishops are now openly not merely “tolerating” this evil, but publicly embracing and endorsing it.
Still, with the Pope himself welcoming LGBT lobby groups and participating in pagan worship within the walls of the Vatican, we can’t be too surprised.
Obviously, we need to step up our spiritual efforts – prayer and penance – in order to appease God and win the grace of conversion for all involved but is there anything else we can do? I was originally planning to list the email addresses for the dioceses named here and urging us all to contact each bishop, but I changed my mind. We’ve been there, done that and bought every T shirt in the shop. Beyond, therefore, public “naming” [if not shaming – they’re brazen now] is there anything else we can do to end scandals like these shocking, sacrilegous, if not blasphemous “Masses” – I mean, can they really be Masses?
Don’t be fooled by the way these Masses are pitched as being for “LGBT and families” – that’s a cover. I’ve never seen any Masses advertised for serial killers and families, have you? Or bank robbers and families, have you? No, for whatever reason (and the possibilities are chilling: the American Cardinal, now plain old ‘Mr’, McCarrick springs to mind) these bishops have embraced – as normal and acceptable – the entire range of depraved behaviour and “identities” known euphemistically as LGBT+
In a small act of reparation for the blasphemous use of images of the Sacred Heart, we pray, Jesus Mercy! Mary, Help!
Your [printable] thoughts welcome…
Oh Sacred Heart of Jesus, we place all our trust in Thee…
The short (around 15 minutes) protest will be held on 16 November, 12 noon, outside St Gerard’s Church, Fleming road. Bellshill, ML4 1NF
Manifestly, Fr Despard is being treated extremely unfairly, and for what reason? For whistleblowing. For seeking to expose the extent of homosexuality within the ranks of the priesthood in Scotland. He was suspended from the active ministry and threatened with various law suits from individuals who did not follow through on their threats. The then Bishop, Joseph Devine, promised a thorough investigation into Fr Despard’s claims about homosexual clergy but that has not materialised either.
It is a disgrace that Fr Despard has been left for six years without a parish; at a time of acute priest shortages, he is not being allowed to live his vocation in service to the people of the Diocese of Motherwell. Yet, at least one known “gay” activist priest in the same Diocese has been permitted to work with the LGBT+ lobby to ensure that children in Scottish schools are indoctrinated with the “diversity” agenda.
Bloggers and readers are encouraged to join in the silent protest in support of Fr Despard, which is effectively challenging the Bishop to explain how, on earth, he can justify discriminating against this priest any longer.
In May of this year, Ireland’s Minister of State for Tourism and Sport, Brendan Griffin, launched a new annual three day festival which is to take place from October 31st to November 2nd. One of the main centres for this festival will be Trim, in county Meath. The festival is called the Púca festival and it is hoped to bring 100,000 people to Ireland to celebrate the pagan festival of Samhain.
The history of county Meath is interesting from a Catholic viewpoint. It was in county Meath that St Patrick challenged the pagan king Laeghaire and slowly but surely brought to an end the pagan rule of the Druids. Now that Ireland has culturally apostatised from the Catholic faith with the adoption of ‘same-sex marriage’ and abortion by way of two referenda, it is not surprising that our government seeks to rekindle the old paganism in order to drive Catholicism from our country. [Link added by Editor, Catholic Truth]
On the website for the Púca festival, they advertise one of the events as follows.
Arrival of the Spirits.
“Meet the original spirits of Halloween in this dramatic Festival opener as we welcome some very special Festival guests into the atmospheric surrounds of Trim Castle Keep.
The beings of Samhain reveal themselves on Halloween night with Púca leading the way, representing the change, followed by The Morrigan the dark, Boann the light, The Fear Dearg the mischief and Fionn Mac Chumaill the warding of Samhain.
Who knows what will happen on the night – or even who will appear!”
Whilst many modernists and progressives mock the existence of evil spirits and the spirit world, there is no doubt that this festival is demonic in nature and that if unchecked, it will lead to an increase in demonic activity and of people troubled by evil spirits.
But we should not be surprised that there are moves afoot to undo the great work of St Patrick in Ireland. Any government that legalises the killing of unborn children in their mother’s wombs is on the road to demon worship and further child sacrifice.
The festival seeks to invoke ancient demonic spirits all in the name of tourism and of generating revenue. Christ’s admonition that one cannot serve two masters comes to mind. Minister Brendan Griffin said; “I’m delighted to announce Fáilte Ireland’s new festival, Púca. The Government is committed to investing in the development of new and compelling reasons for visitors to choose Ireland as a destination. I am confident that Púca is well-positioned to attract visitors from around the world to come and celebrate our ancient traditions.”
Fáilte Ireland’s head of product development said: “Our market research tells us that overseas visitors are motivated to visit Ireland to attend the Púca festival. Over the next three years, we are investing €1.5million to develop Púca as a world class festival that positions Ireland as the home of Halloween internationally. We believe it has the potential to motivate 100,000 overseas visitors to come to Ireland and generate €12m in revenue for the local region.”
The spirits that they seek to invoke include the Morrigan or phantom Queen and the Fear Dearg.
The Lumen Fidei institute [is] hoping to organise a separate event to counter this grave evil that once more threatens our land, to include the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, a public Rosary and the public recitation of St Patrick’s Breastplate, especially the following lines.
St Patrick’s Breastplate (excerpt).
“I summon to-day around me all these powers, Against every hostile merciless power directed against my body and my soul. Against the incantations of false prophets, Against the black laws of heathenism, Against the false laws of heretics, Against the deceit of idolatry, Against the spells of women, and smiths, and Druids, Against all knowledge which hath defiled man’s body and soul.”
We will post details of our event online and in Catholic Voice as soon as we have decided on our action plan. Please pray for this initiative. Please pray for Ireland. Please pray for the conversion of our politicians so that they may stop serving the father of lies. Source – Lumen Fidei
Is anyone even remotely surprised at this latest news from Ireland? They’ve been promoting “Celtic Spirituality” for years now – thus steeping themselves, misguided, ignorant priests, religious and laity, in paganism. In fact, as far back as 2013 ,the Irish Bishops admitted that Ireland had become a nation of pagans. We still await the “mea culpa” from them, of course. That’s taking a while. They must know, however, that they, each bishop individually, bear responsibility for this return to paganism. The buck, without question, stops at their door.
We must pray hard for this once great Catholic nation – and congratulate the Lumen Fidei/Catholic Voice apostolate for their efforts to counter this evil.
The silence from the Catholic community, however, is embarrassingly deafening.
In the next day or so, I will be emailing each Scottish Bishop (we only have 8) to send them the link to this thread, and I’ll send it, also, to the Bishops of England and Wales.
To date, the UK Bishops have facilitated and thus effectively condoned the corruption of young people in the Catholic (add inverted commas) schools. The least we can do, as informed laity, is to shame them by publicly calling out their negligence.
Don’t forget, as far back or recently, however you see it, as 3 February, 2017, the Scottish Catholic Observer reported the shocking fact that – to quote the headline – LGBTI ‘safe spaces’ [are now provided] in Catholic schools in Scotland; and, applauding this sinister development all the way, was Bishop John Keenan of Paisley, pointing out that this was a response to “LGBTI bullying issues, while respecting parents’ wishes that their children be educated within the Catholic vision of the dignity of every human person.” Note: not educated within the vision of the Church’s prohibition on homosexual activity.
We’re still waiting for safe spaces to be provided for pupils who are bullied because they have ginger hair, are too fat, too thin, or simply not liked. No safe spaces announced for them, so far. We’ll keep you posted, though, be assured…
There will not, of course, be any such “safe spaces” provided for the traditional victims of bullies because the schools, including Catholic schools, are being permeated with homosexual propaganda for the purpose of eradicating all opposition to that “lifestyle”. The “safe spaces” / bullying strategy is nothing more than a tactic, a means of getting the LGBTQ++ message quietly embedded in schools. That’s the plan. Don’t be fooled.
“Hate crime”? The only “hate” accompanying discussions about homosexuality / transgenderism emanates from the “Gaystapo”, who will not tolerate any questioning of their sexual behaviour. We may question the (lack of) wisdom of cohabitation, extra-marital affairs/adultery, you name it, and “hate crime” will not be mentioned. So, before the Pink Brigade and their supporters start trolling us, be assured, we hate no-one. Not a person in this world.
We are not only forbidden to hate anyone – and that by Christ Himself – but we are commandedby Christ to love our enemies, and to do good to those who hate and persecute us. So, let’s get that nonsense-allegation out of the way. It’s a devious means of stamping out all opposition. Don’t be intimidated by it.
Comment on the issues surrounding the ongoing propaganda blitz in schools from those promoting homosexuality, transgenderism etc. with a particular emphasis on the downright apathy of the Catholic community – especially parents, teachers, priests, and bishops.
Finally, please spread the above video around – it’s important that no parent, teacher, priest or bishop can pretend not to know the extent of this infiltration of schools, even at the earliest stages of education, because what is going on, as revealed in the above video, is nothing short of child abuse.
Sky News broadcast a segment on the “culture clash” in UK classrooms this morning, focusing on the fact that the protest against the sympathetic portrayal of LGBT issues/same-sex “families” which began in Birmingham has now spread across England. Click hereto read the Sky News report, and see small video clips.
These good Muslim parents can expect no help from Catholics, sadly, because, according to a report emailed to Catholic Truth by one of our watchful readers south of the border, the Bishops of England (with one exception) have welcomed the Government’s shocking new sex-education law which sees parental rights as the prime educators of their children over-ruled by Head Teachers. Click hereto read all about this disgraceful partnership with LGBT activists into which the Bishops have effectively entered.
We know that not all parents are in a position to home-school – that’s understandable. However, what possible excuse can any Catholic parent offer for standing on the sidelines as these ever new and ever worsening laws are passed which are clearly aimed at brainwashing children with the LGBT message that sexuality has nothing to do with morality, that the natural moral law applies only to theft and killing, not to sexual activity – how can any Catholic parent sit back and allow their children to be told that families can be made up of two mummies and/or two daddies, and that God really doesn’t care as long as everybody is happy and “loves” everybody else.
Apart from home-schooling, what can parents actually DO – should they be standing shoulder-to-shoulder beside the Muslim parents outside of schools and if not, why not. And if not what SHOULD they be doing, because, clearly, they should be doing something to stop this brainwashing of innocent primary school children, which is effectively grooming them for a lifetime of what the Catechism of the Catholic Church describes as “acts of grave depravity” adding that “Under no circumstances can they be approved.” (# 2357)
What right-minded parent, then, stands by while their children are being taught that “acts of grave depravity” can be approved, and more, that these acts of depravity must be tolerated and respected?
For centuries, Catholic children were taught the general Christian rule of treating our neighbour as we would each wish to be treated ourselves. That “golden rule” applies to every person in creation no matter how badly they may behave. We treat everyone with courtesy and respect, as human beings; but that does not, emphatically, mean that we may approve their behaviour. We can easily see that with regard to criminal behaviour, but it applies, also, to all behaviour which offends God, whether or not it is breaking a human or national law. So, to repeat – what possible excuse can any Catholic parent offer to excuse their silence on the LGBT dominance in schools?
Congratulations to the informed Muslim parents for taking counter-cultural action to protect their children. But “congratulations” is not a sentiment that we may legitimately offer to Catholic parents today who are, in the main, going along with every immorality in the book. So, what message SHOULD we sent to Catholic parents right now? Printable suggestions only, please and thank you!
Since writing my original editorial comment below, I have been moved by the information given by bloggers and the evidence provided by several (not least the Australian bloggers) which appears to point to the Cardinal’s innocence. Read on, and tell us if you agree.
St John Chrysostom, Bishop and Doctor of the Church, teaches that “…the person who does not become irate when he has cause to be, sins. For an unreasonable patience is the hotbed of many vices: it fosters negligence, and stimulates not only the wicked, but above all the good, to do wrong. (Homily Xl, super Matheum, 1c, nt 7).
So, what is the correct Catholic response to this sort of horrendous news? Horror at the Cardinal’s crimes (of which he insists he is innocent); compassion for his victims? Compassion for the Cardinal himself, that he has, apparently, succumbed to a shocking temptation and thus fallen from grace and brought his high office – and the Catholic Church itself – into disrepute?
One key question, however, has to be whether or not these appalling crimes are doing irreparable damage to the Bride of Christ, His Church. Of course Christ has promised to be with His Church until the end of time, that the gates of Hell will not prevail against His Church. There was no promise, however, that the gates of Hell wouldn’t come close, and they have never been as close as they are now, in our times. It has to be the case, then, that in some souls, the answer to the “irreparable damage” question is definitely “yes”. Some will never see the beauty of the Faith, some will be convinced that all priests are abusers, that the Church is evil. And isn’t that where St John Chrysostom’s exhortation to righteous anger should move us to action? But, what, if anything – beyond prayer and sacrifice – can any of us do about this sordid scandal of the abuse of children and vulnerable adults? There must be something we can do – but what?
