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?

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 😀 

The Great Reset: The Plan For Global Totalitarianism – We Must Fight Back… 

Comment: 

Since nobody voted Klaus Schwab or any other members of the globalist elite into positions of authority over us, they have some nerve setting out, deliberately, and unashamedly, to change the way we live, to remove our freedoms which come from God, not from any politician or self-appointed wannabe world ruler. 

But what about Mark Moss’s take on how to deal with this very real threat – the plan to remove our right to privacy and to ownership whether of our homes or the clothes on our back… Is Mark suggesting anything we haven’t already identified on this blog? Can anyone add anything to his ideas about how to prepare for what the “great and the good” are planning for us in the next decade?  If so, shoot – I’m all agog! 

Covid Compliance Leads To Tyranny… Spain Proof Positive – So Stop Complying! 

Comment: 

I stopped watching Carl Vernon videos a long time ago due to his foul mouth – generally speaking, he can’t string a paragraph together without using bad language.  The above video is one of the exceptions – and it’s worth reflecting on the truth of what Carl is saying: full compliance, which is what we are witnessing across the UK today, is a huge mistake. Tyranny is upon us – and the majority don’t even recognise it. 

Yet, the silence from churchmen at every level is deafening.  The apparently prophetic words of (the deceased) American Archbishop Fulton Sheen spring to mind:  “… a religion that doesn’t interfere with the secular order will soon discover that the secular order will not refrain from interfering with it.”   

Freemasonic Encyclical: Fratelli tutti… Tutti Frutti… Where’s The Catholic Bit? 

Blogger, Athanasius writes…

I spent several hours reading the Encyclical of Pope Francis Fratelli tutti but got nowhere near reading it in its entirety – it’s the size of War & Peace and all about the Brotherhood of Man. It reads like the Masonic blueprint for the New World Order complete with that fundamental heresy that embraces all religions as being instruments of the one God “in whom we all believe”, Muslims, Jews and Christians. Really horrendous stuff from a Pope and completely the opposite in worldview from the Traditional teaching of the Church based on the Gospels. [Editor: interesting, in that there are headlines in cyberspace linking this encyclical to Freemasonry – e.g. Freemasons Acclaim Pope Francis’ New Encyclical Fratelli Tutti, Embodies One of the Guiding Principles of Freemasonry…]

Here are a few passages… 

The different religions, based on their respect for each human person as a creature called to be a child of God, contribute significantly to building fraternity and defending justice in society. Dialogue between the followers of different religions does not take place simply for the sake of diplomacy, consideration or tolerance. In the words of the Bishops of India, “the goal of dialogue is to establish friendship, peace and harmony, and to share spiritual and moral values and experiences in a spirit of truth and love”. #271

From our faith experience and from the wisdom accumulated over centuries, but also from lessons learned from our many weaknesses and failures, we, the believers of the different religions, know that our witness to God benefits our societies. The effort to seek God with a sincere heart, provided it is never sullied by ideological or self-serving aims, helps us recognize one another as travelling companions, truly brothers and sisters. #272

The Church esteems the ways in which God works in other religions, and “rejects nothing of what is true and holy in these religions. She has a high regard for their manner of life and conduct, their precepts and doctrines which… often reflect a ray of that truth which enlightens all men and women”. #273

A journey of peace is possible between religions. Its point of departure must be God’s way of seeing things. “God does not see with his eyes, God sees with his heart. And God’s love is the same for everyone, regardless of religion. Even if they are atheists, his love is the same. When the last day comes, and there is sufficient light to see things as they really are, we are going to find ourselves quite surprised”. #274 

I wonder whatever happened to fallen human nature and its inclination to sin. In fact I wonder what happened to Our Lord’s Gospel assurance that “the poor you will always have with you…”  and “unless a man be baptised with water and the Holy Ghost, he cannot enter into the kingdom of heaven”, and again “Go ye therefore teaching all nation whatsoever I have commanded you, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost…”

Francis reckons a good old chinwag in “dialogue” with our Muslim, Jewish and other non-Christian/non-Catholic “brothers and sisters” is far more important if we are to build a better common home here on earth – he even praises the role of the U.N in helping to achieve this. Real heresy and, dare I say, apostasy!

This is about the Freemasonic agenda, the universal brotherhood of man, that “new humanism” which Paul VI called Vatican II, but which Cardinal Suenens declared “The French Revolution in the Church”. The Encyclical would have been more aptly named “Tutti-Frutti” since it attempts to include all flavours of religion and non-religion in the pursuit of the new brotherhood that does not have Christ the King as its head.   [See] the Papal Encyclical of Pope Pius XI on Christ the King, to highlight the contrast between a Catholic Pope and a Communist one!

Comment:

There is also  the following jibe directed, it seems, at  President Trump in this “brotherly” encyclical. Under the headline “Shameless Aggression”  we read:

Things that until a few years ago could not be said by anyone without risking the loss of universal respect can now be said with impunity, and in the crudest of terms, even by some political figures. Nor should we forget that “there are huge economic interests operating in the digital world, capable of exercising forms of control as subtle as they are invasive, creating mechanisms for the manipulation of consciences and of the democratic process. The way many platforms work often ends up favouring encounter between persons who think alike, shielding them from debate. These closed circuits facilitate the spread of fake news and false information, fomenting prejudice and hate”. #45

In conclusion, rather than belabour the obvious point that this must rank as one of the worst ever papal encyclicals – we’re talking, of all time –  I think it better to end this “through gritted teeth” comment with a quote from the encyclical of Pope Pius XI on the Kingship of Christ. This serves to contrast this latest papal encyclical of Pope Francis with authentic Catholic teaching on the relationship of Christ’s Church to the world… Read on, and tell us if you agree… or not.

This kingdom is spiritual and is concerned with spiritual things. That this is so the above quotations from Scripture amply prove, and Christ by his own action confirms it. On many occasions, when the Jews and even the Apostles wrongly supposed that the Messiah would restore the liberties and the kingdom of Israel, he repelled and denied such a suggestion. When the populace thronged around him in admiration and would have acclaimed him King, he shrank from the honor and sought safety in flight. Before the Roman magistrate he declared that his kingdom was not of this world. The gospels present this kingdom as one which men prepare to enter by penance, and cannot actually enter except by faith and by baptism, which, though an external rite, signifies and produces an interior regeneration. This kingdom is opposed to none other than to that of Satan and to the power of darkness. It demands of its subjects a spirit of detachment from riches and earthly things, and a spirit of gentleness. They must hunger and thirst after justice, and more than this, they must deny themselves and carry the cross.”  (Quas Primas: Encyclical of Pope Pius XI on the Feast of Christ The King, 11 December, 1925)    

Sinister, Rogue UK Government(s) Rule By Diktat – MPs MUST Speak Out…

Comment: 

The following letter was written by a couple in England and is offered here as an encouragement to others to write to MPs right across the UK – we really do need to make our voices heard as the governments of the UK continue to rule by decree or diktat – the form of governance normally associated with Communist-style tyrannical regimes.  As we have seen on this blog via a number of video clips, the UK is quickly becoming a police state, with officers acting as agents of the State, by enforcing measures (supposedly temporary) which are based on political ideology, masquerading as science.  So, read the letter below and share your thoughts:  are we being led, now by sinister forces?  Are we no longer sleep-walking, but now marching into a permanent form of tyrannical government, where no dissent is permitted and will, in fact, lead to hefty fines or imprisonment?  Our personal freedom is being trampled underfoot, right across the UK where each of the four devolved administrations is ruling by diktat.  Writing to our local MPs is important – they need to know that we are extremely angry about the loss of our liberty.  The couple below have made their feelings very clear – hopefully, after reading the text of their letter, you will be motivated to write to your own MP, as a matter of urgency. 

Letter to an MP in England…

Dear…. MP…

Re: Coronavirus Regulations

Boris Johnson said today:

“The world we want to move to is one where everyone can take an enabling test at the start of every day.”

Is that the world you want your children to live in? Since my letter of 23 May 2020, we continue to live, as we have since in the passage of the Coronavirus Act 2020, subject to the absolute diktat of our incompetent health secretary, Matthew Hancock, with no scrutiny from parliament, no transparency on government advice and decision-making, and no accountability. This is strange, as serious cases of Covid-19 have reduced to statistically negligible levels, notwithstanding continued government lies about a “second wave”, as shown by these chart [sic]

This is against a backdrop of significantly increased testing (see below), which is known to yield a high percentage of false positive results.

It is incredible that more MPs are not speaking out against this abuse of power, or the fact that the stated reasons for these restrictions on liberty have been repeatedly superseded by further specious reasons. You are paid to represent the interests of your constituents, whose remaining liberties are now the plaything of a rogue government. Please let me know what you intend to do to hold the government to account for its reckless and sinister actions. In particular, I trust you will be able to confirm you intend to vote against extending the current intolerable despotism for a further two years when the act comes up for a parliamentary vote at the end of September. If not, please can you explain why you believe should continue to draw your salary?

The government has just announced that it will be restricting gatherings to 6 persons as of Monday. It has done no impact assessment for this. This is in addition to numerous other harmful measures introduced on a similar basis, including:

1. Mandatory face coverings on public transport.

2. Mandatory face coverings in shops.

3. A £10,000 fine for organising an “illegal gathering” (which since the case of Piers Corbyn we now know will now include any  political  protest to challenge the government’s action, but not protests organised by terrorist groups such as BLM and Extinction Rebellion).

None of these measures is remotely justified, given the fact that the risk now posed to the general public by Covid-19 is in line with background risks encountered every day. What is particularly monstrous is the reinforcement and redoubling of such restrictions against a backdrop of diminishing risk. I can see no reason for this other than the government’s desire to promote public fear to perpetuate its autocratic and unaccountable rule – whether because it is hoping its incompetence is not found out, or for more sinister reasons.

The government now proposes to roll out vaccines to vulnerable people that have not been properly subject to full clinical trials and concerning which no evidence exists on long-term side effects. It is certain that, given the public appetite for such a vaccine, this action will result directly in many deaths and many more life-changing side effects; and more again, if the vaccine is mandated. The fact that the government is aware of this risk is evident in the consultation document issued in respect of these proposed measures (see here: https://www.gov.uk/government/consultations/distributing-vaccines-and- s-and-treatments-for-covid-19-and-flu).
Ed:  this link leads to an Error Page. I think the author of the letter may have meant to link to this page

The government still refuses to rule out vaccine mandation – a crime against human dignity worthy of Josef Mengele –  and in addition there are plans to introduce a digital ID card (see the article in the Times available here: https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/digital-id-cards-lead-the-dominic-cummings-data-revolution-v750fn3kt), likely containing immunisation status information. I repeat what I wrote in my last letter; if such a card is introduced I will consider myself under an obligation to disregard such a wicked law. A UK parliamentary petition opposing any enforcement of vaccination has exceeded 100,000 subscriptions (see here: https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/323442).

Such invasive and far-reaching measures could only be contemplated (if at all) for the most severe reasons, and in light of a thorough and transparent risk assessment and cost-benefit analysis. I pointed out the deplorable lack of any such analysis in my earlier correspondence. Mr Hancock incredibly dismissed the need for any such analysis in a press conference on 15 June 2020. The fact that the government still refuses to offer transparency on its decision-making is sinister beyond description.

The lack of vigour or urgency with which the official opposition has conducted itself in this matter is frankly disgraceful. I look forward to hearing what you plan to do to restore our liberties, the rule of law, and hold the government to account. If you plan to do nothing, I look forward to hearing your evidence-based reasons for doing nothing.

Yours sincerely,   Ends – all emphases added…

The Great Reset…Covid-19, A Golden Opportunity to “Re-Set” the World…

Comment:  

To quote from The Remnant piece presenting the above video  (and remember what is true for the USA is also true for the UK)...

To understand what’s really happening here, [Michael Matt] takes us to Davos, Switzerland—to the World Economic Forum—where the movers and shakers of the world have been meeting on a regular basis, especially since January 2020, to discuss the “opportunity” for a ‘global reset’ at the Davos 2021 Summit.

Using multiple video clips, Michael shows how everyone from Soros, to Gates, to Schwab, to Al Gore and the Secretary-General of the United Nations are only too eager to admit exactly what The Great Reset is all about.

Using the Trojan Horse of a very serious Coronavirus, these globalists plan to create a global reset of everything from the world economy, to population control, commerce, climate change regulation, education and the UN Sustainable Development Goals in order to “reorder” and “reimagine” every aspect of life as we know it.

This is the rest of the story behind the Russia hoax, Ukraine, the phony impeachment and all the other deep state attempts to cripple Trump’s efforts to ‘make America great again.”

Why? Because no country—especially not the U.S.—can opt out of The Great Reset.

If they get their New Normal, nothing will be the same ever again. Nothing, that is, unless Donald Trump wins in November.

The folks at Davos want a new world order, and the only thing standing in their way at the moment is US.   Ends

And remember, folks, “the new world order” is, by definition, Communism.  Make no mistake about it – although, if you disagree, tell us… 

Marxism Failed – that’s the good news… 

Comment: 

Why, given that it always creates totalitarian states, does Marxism continue to draw the young – because it does attract the young. 

That, to continue from the headline, is the bad news…

I know of students who are committed to studying Marx and who identify themselves as Socialists.  What’s the draw? 

Our Lady appeared at Fatima precisely to warn against the spread of Communism, yet we have bishops (and now a Pope) who are implicitly, if not explicitly singing from the same Marxist hymn sheet – er… to coin a phrase.   Why? 

What can we say  – in a few short words, a soundbite, almost –  to draw them closer to a realization that it is Christ – not Marx – who is the answer to all the problems and mysteries of life…

Peter Hitchens On Loss of Our Liberty – A Lonely, Sane Voice in the Madness …

Comment:

Peter is considered a rebel by his peers in the media.  He is certainly a voice crying in the wilderness.   

Is his voice one with which you find yourself agreeing?  Or are you with the majority who believe (according to the polls and anecdotal evidence) that the Government measures are necessary – and a good thing? 

And what about his comments regarding social pressure e.g.  to wear face masks or be prohibited from entering shops? Will you continue to obey the State or will you join Peter and rebel? 

What about his predictions of a financially painful future, where we will all – rich and not so well off – be poorer, in order to pay for these measures? 

His remarks about those who were threatening to take the Government to court over Brexit but are not saying a word about the Government crackdown on our civil liberties now, resonated with me – what about you?  As did his rebuke to the churchmen who disappeared off the scene faster than the cowardly apostles in that first Holy Week. 

Peter admits that everything he says about this situation may be wrong – what do  you think: IS he wrong? 

Coronavirus Lockdown: Is it Sinister – are we losing our civil liberties forever?

Comment: 

Is the presenter of this video a “conspiracy theorist”?  A “conspiracy nut”?  Or, are those who label him thus, really the “useful idiots” of whom Lenin spoke when he described those who supported and even promoted Communism, despite the fact that it is a brutal, oppressive, authoritarian system of Government?  Are we now ushering in that same brutal, oppressive, authoritarian system of Government? Isn’t this a clear case of the fulfilment of that part of the Fatima prophecy which warned that Russia would spread her errors, the primary error being Communism?  Or is this a case of “the lady doth protest too much?”  (Shakespeare’s Hamlet).
