On Thursday, 28 December, Vatican Insider posted an article about Francis, written by veteran Italian journalist, Andrea Tornielli, under the incredible title:
The Pope’s fight against Satan
As for which part of the headline is more difficult to believe – “pope” or “against Satan” – I’ll leave it for readers to decide. Here, we will focus on the latter.
According to Tornielli:
In five years, [Francis] has quoted [Satan] more times than his predecessors have done together in the last half century: for Pope Bergoglio the devil, and his ability to divide, are common topics in his daily preaching. A countercurrent preaching, since the Evil One has long been a great absent. Here is a small and incomplete review of quotations.
First of all, I am struck by the amusingly inaccurate, and yet truthful, English translation of the Italian original provided by the publisher (La Stampa).
What Tornielli actually stated is better understood as “Francis has mentioned Satan…”
That said, it is indeed the case, for all intents and purposes, that Francis has consistently quoted the Evil One over the last five years, and in ways far too numerous to number.
For instance, when Francis points to the life of Martin Luther as an inspiration for Catholics, or calls on Muslims to persist in their false religion, or reassures Jews in their rejection of Christ, or teaches that the Divine Law is too difficult for some persons to keep, etc., rest assured, he is speaking as the Vicar of Beelzebub.
Perhaps it is true that Francis has mentioned the Devil “more times than his predecessors,” but what the examples above tell me (and presumably others with ears to hear) is that he doth protest too much; i.e., it’s a diversion tactic, even if it is employed in ignorance by an unwitting tool. (God alone will judge.)
And this isn’t the only subject about which Francis employs such a tactic.
Consider, for example, his protestations against Masonic and homosexual lobbies.
During his infamous “who am I to judge?” in-flight exchange with a reporter aboard Humble One, Francis said:
The problem is in making a lobby of this [homosexual] tendency: a lobby of misers, a lobby of politicians, a lobby of Masons, so many lobbies. For me, this is the greater problem.
No claimant to the Chair of St. Peter has behaved more like a Mason or done more to earn the praise of homo-deviants than Francis!
In any case, in support of his thesis, Andrea Tornielli provided a number of Bergoglian quotes; presumably selected because he believes that they pack the most punch.
Among them is this gem:
When one does not profess Jesus Christ, one professes the worldliness of the devil.
This from the so-called “People’s Pope” who addressed the United Nations for nearly fifty minutes in 2015, the European Union on multiple occasions, and various other gatherings too numerous to number without “professing Jesus Christ” even once.
Then there is this beauty:
[Satan] presents things as if they were a good thing. But his intention is destruction, perhaps with humanistic explanations.
This from the same Argentinian humanist in white who urged a Vatican conference to make man, not our Lord Jesus Christ, but man “the center of society, the center of thoughts, the focus of reflection,” and this for the simple reason that man is, according to him, “King of the Universe!”
Lastly, and it’s a doozey:
The devil sows jealousy, ambitions, ideas, but to divide!
This from the Boss of the Curia who routinely hurls insults at the tradition-minded while lauding those who champion all manner of novelty; thus creating an unprecedented “us against them” atmosphere that has the latter gloating and the former constantly looking over their shoulder.
The bottom line here is eminently simple, folks; one is either with Christ or against Christ, gathering with Him or scattering.
Objectively speaking – as every moderately well-formed Catholics knows perfectly well, but all too few are willing to acknowledge – Francis isn’t fighting against Satan, he’s serving him.
The Seminaries and Orders have long gone adrift in both the selection of candidates and the curriculum provided students.
See Fr John O’conner’s testimonial back in the eighties or listen to Fr Ripperger’s difficulties in selecting seminary candidates for the Society of Exorcists once they have been Ordained.
The Jesuit Order has a thousand of slippery pitfalls .Read ,”The Jesuits” by Malachi Martin of which one ex Jesuit priest who was not a particular fan of Martin’s referred to as “spot on”concerning the Order.
That said, why are we surprised by anything Pope Francis says or does?
Is it a matter of concern for any one of us? Yes and No .
No, because if we know our Faith and make every effort to practice it sincerely
we can still work out our salvation in fear and trembling, which we are
trying to do , even though it is particularly difficult in these times.
And Yes, because this Papacy appears to be throwing up roadblocks at every turn by making it more difficult and disheartening for us.
So, what are we to do. ? Pray for the Hierarchy our Local Ordinaries and priests .
Avoid the near occasion of sin , keep looking for a good Mass and the Sacraments and most of all as directed by The Mother of God …PRAY THE DAILY ROSARY !
It’s going to get a whole lot worse before it gets any better, so pick up your Divinely promised effective weaponry and use it.
Jorge Bergoglio is surely in league with the devil. This can’t be emphasized enough. Part of this partnership involves deceiving useful idiot CatholiCucks (who, by the way, share much in common with white ethnomasochist useful idiots of both the avowedly liberal and the cuckservative variety) into believing that he’s fighting rather than serving the devil.
Reading program against the devil:
Manual for Spiritual Warfare, by Paul Thigpen
Practical Spiritual Warfare: Three Discourses by St. John Chrysostom
An Exorcist Tells His Story, by Fr. Gabriel Amorth
An Exorcist: More Stories, by Fr. Gabriel Amorth
Deliverance Prayers: For Use by the Laity, by Fr. Chad Ripperger
Auxilium Christianorum, by Fr. Chad Ripperger
And as a bonus related to those pitiful, pitiful, suicidally xenophilic, thoroughly demoralized and propagandized pathologically altruistic virtue-signaling creatures now known as white ethnomasochists, see Jared Taylor’s priceless essay entitled “An Open Letter to Cuckservatives.” Also, on the myth of equality, see chapter 10 of Fr. Wathen’s book entitled Who Shall Ascend?
Cited by Aphonsus above ,all four Our Times you tube talks Our Times by Fr Ripperger are well worth the time.
“for Pope Bergoglio the devil, and his ability to divide, are common topics in his daily preaching.”
Stop right there.
This is the most basic false premise that Pope Fallacious embraces.
Let’s clarify some Truth:
Satan is The Prince of this world; and this “liar”, this “murderer from the beginning” specifically causes division within the Church among the faithful by advocating a false virtue of world peace which necessitates that the faithful compromise and surrender their objective moral absolutes of faith with the world’s subjective amoral standard of relativism. And this is the motive behind the secular soft-speak of key misleading terms like “challenges” and “dialogue”, all of which are intended to surrender and unify a watered-down version of the Catholic faith with the false secular standards of the world.
After all – it is the Ten Commandments, not the Ten Challenges. And Our Lord commanded His disciples to go forth and preach the Good News to the world – not to engage in endless open “dialogue” for the sake of world unity – but rather, to call souls out of the sins of this world and into a new life of Truth in contrast to the false notions of the Prince of this world.
So what exactly did Our Lord say about division and world peace:
“Do you think that I have come to establish peace on the earth? No, I tell you, but rather division.” ~ Luke 12:51
“I have come to set the earth on fire, and how I wish it were already blazing!” ~ Luke 12:49
“Do not think that I have come to bring peace upon the earth. I have come to bring not peace but the sword. For I have come to set –
a man ‘against his father,
a daughter against her mother,
and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law;
and one’s enemies will be those of his household.’” ~ Matthew 10:34-36
“As you enter a house, wish it peace. If the house is worthy, let your peace come upon it; if not, let your peace return to you. Whoever will not receive you or listen to your words—go outside that house or town and shake the dust from your feet. Amen, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah on the day of judgment than for that town.” ~ Matthew 10:12-15
“Everyone who acknowledges me before others I will acknowledge before my heavenly Father. But whoever denies me before others, I will deny before my heavenly Father.” ~ Matthew 10:32-33
So what kind of “peace” did Our Lord promise?
Well, *ONLY* the true peace that comes to those on whom His “favor rests”. In other words – those whose surrender to faith has allowed His grace to save them:
“Glory to God in the highest and on earth peace to those on whom his favor rests.” ~ Luke 2:14
The BIG Insult is coming from Rome..
A tongue lashing to all catholics everywhere, that will shock the conscious of the court, so to speak.
What the Modernist means by criticizing “division” is, “if you disagree with me you are evil”.
