On August 6th, Pope Francis announced that the Catholic Church, following the lead of the schismatic Orthodox (seriously?), would institute its own annual “World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation,” with its inaugural event to take place on September 1st.
In his letter establishing the pedestrian perennial practice, “FRANCISCUS” proposed:
The annual World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation will offer individual believers and communities a fitting opportunity to reaffirm their personal vocation to be stewards of creation, to thank God for the wonderful handiwork which he has entrusted to our care, and to implore his help for the protection of creation as well as his pardon for the sins committed against the world in which we live.
The celebration of this Day, on the same date as the Orthodox Church, will be a valuable opportunity to bear witness to our growing communion with our Orthodox brothers and sisters …
…with due regard for local needs and situations, it can be properly celebrated with the participation of the entire People of God: priests, men and women religious and the lay faithful.
Throughout the letter, Pope Francis painted the feel-good initiative as a decidedly Christian one; calling on all “individual believers” and the “entire People of God” to take part.
Wow! Talk about a snubbing of the Jews!
Are they not also believers? Have they somehow suddenly ceased to be the People of God?
Please, someone correct me if I’m wrong, but I’m pretty sure that Nostra Aetate insists that Christ reconciled the Jews and the people of the New Covenant in such a way as to make both one in Himself. (cf NA 4).
In fact, I am absolutely certain that this has been the official “company line” flowing out of Rome ever since that wretched document was promulgated.
So, what the hell happened?
I can say with a relatively high degree of certainty that what didn’t happen (in spite of the title to this post) is that Pope Francis underwent a profound conversion experience such that he emerged so committed to the Catholic faith that he now realizes that Nostra Aetate is largely bunk, and the Jews in our time, by virtue of their rejection of Christ, are not to be numbered among “believers,” much less the “People of God.”
That leaves just one other explanation; a magnificent oversight that cannot but wound the Church’s relationship with our “elder brothers in the faith.”
One can only imagine just how hurt the likes of Rabbi Skorka, and other liberal Jews, must be…
I mean, think about it, liberal Jews are at the very forefront of the earth worship movement. Arguably, they, more than any other group, have incorporated radical environmentalism into their religion (such as it is) making of it a religion all its own.
As a whole, the Jews received Pope Francis’ envirocyclical, Laudato Si’, more enthusiastically than most Catholics!
The Connecticut Jewish Leger, for example, ran a piece reflective of the broader community’s enthusiasm, saying, “Laudato Si’, Pope Francis’ powerful new encyclical, is likely to go down in history as the most important religious text of our time;” ultimately concluding that while it may be Catholic teaching, “it is also a very Jewish document.”
An editorialist for the Israeli publication Haaretz, even went so far as to ask in reference to Laudato Si’, “Where is the Rabbi who can inspire us like Pope Francis?”
And now this…
It’s sad to think about, isn’t it?
It’s kind of like coming to the realization that no one thought to invite Aunt Dorothy to the family reunion even though she never forgets a birthday.
Surely the Captains of Dialogue in Rome will eventually come to recognize their interreligious faux pas for what it is, and will seek to mend fences.
As such, keep an eye open for Pope Francis or Cardinal Koch to invite the Jews to join in the fun; perhaps even inviting them to take part in some embarrassing tree-hugging dog and pony show in Rome on September 1st.
The words “People of God” in the Novus Ordo church does not refer to the Triune God – Father, Son and Holy Ghost. It is a very broad term which covers just about every creed with the exception of atheists who don’t profess belief in ANY God. It is the absolute perfect expression for the modern “catholic” church whose aim is to unite all religions under one umbrella provided you believe in a “god”, whether it be Allah, Buddha, snakes, cows etc. It’s a “one size fits all” diety . We can thank St. JP2 for that!!! Praying to a pagan god for peace or protection of creation is as effective as praying to our shoes!
BTW, what is Bergoglio looking at down there? Some say hell is in the core of the earth. Is he taking a “peek”?
The ironic thing about Buddhism is that they don’t even believe in God (in any kind of “god”)… Not as far as I know anyhow…
Who were the Buddhists praying to during Assisi? Or do Buddhists engage in some sort of self-worship ceremonies?
Francis: “…our growing communion with our Orthodox brothers and sisters”.
In the above statement, I believe Bergoglio has uttered most truthful words. As the conciliar church departs more and more from Catholicism, it is resembling more and more like the Orthodox heretics and schismatics, all the more so after the Oktober sin-nod when communion for public adulterers will probably be given a green light.
Ecumenism only works “one way” – the notion that you can “dialogue” with heretics whilst “preserving your traditions” is a fallacy (I think the farcical “joint declaration on justification” with the proddies towards the end of the ’90s under pope JP2 is a case in point). Either you preach for heretics to be converted to the true faith (which Francis has declared to be “solemn nonsense”, so that ain’t happening) and bring them into the bosom of the Church, or you become more and more removed from the doctrines of the Church and go the way of the schismatics, which is exactly the trend we have seen in the Church since “Unitatis Redintegratio” was promulgated.
“At the time of the International Congress of Freemasonry in Bucharest in 1926, Fr. Kolbe wrote the article “Rycerz Niepokalanej” [The Knight of the Immaculate] in which one reads:
The secret structure of Freemasonry is controlled by the Jews
“These men [the Freemasons] believe that they are the ones who will rule everything, but let us hear what is written in the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion. Protocol n. 11 states: ‘We will create and put in effect the laws and the governments … in opportune moments … by means of national rebellions. … What we want is that the multitudes, disoriented by the revolt, still in a condition of terror and uncertainty, should understand once and for all that we are so strong, so untouchable, so powerful that in no way will we take into account their opinions and wishes. Instead we are ready and able to crush with irresistible power their manifestations at any moment and in every place. … Then, in fear and trembling, they will close their eyes to everything and await the consequences. …
“For what purpose have we created this policy and insinuated it into the minds of the Masons, without giving them any possibility of examining its underlying meaning? … This is what has served as the basis for our secret organization of Masonry, whose existence is not known or even suspected by these cattle, attracted by us into the army of Masonic lodges.”
Here, Fr. Kolbe directs himself to the Masons, saying, “Freemasons, did you hear this? The Hebrews, who have secretly organized and secretly direct you, consider you as beasts, recruited into the Masonic lodges for ends that you neither know nor suspect … Are you aware, Freemasons, of what awaits those among you who will begin to think for themselves? Listen to this in the same Protocol: ‘Death is the inevitable conclusion of every life … We will execute the Masons in a way that no one can suspect, not even the victims themselves: They will all die at the moment it is deemed necessary, apparently because of common illnesses.’
Fr. Kolbe wanted to save the Jews, but this didn’t prevent him from denouncing their conspiracy. The saint Founder continues: “Freemasons, you who recently during the Bucharest Congress were pleased by the fact that Masonry is growing stronger everywhere, reflect well and answer sincerely: Is it not better to serve the Creator with interior peace … rather than to obey the orders of those who hate you?”
Finally, Maximilian Kolbe directs himself to the secret Chiefs of Freemasonry with these words:
“And you, small squadron of Hebrews, the ‘learned elders of Zion,’ who have already consciously provoked so many misfortunes and are preparing yet others, to you I direct this question: What advantage will you gain? … A huge accumulation of gold, pleasures, diversions and power, but none of this makes man happy. And if still it should give some happiness, how long will it last? Ten years perhaps, or twenty … I ask you, Hebrew leaders, you who have let yourselves be seduced by Satan, the enemy of humanity, would it not be better for you also to return sincerely to God?”
In another article of 1926, Fr. Kolbe, again citing the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, wrote: “They say of themselves: ‘Who or what is in a position to overthrow an invisible force? And this is precisely what our force is. Gentile Freemasonry only serves as a screen for us and our objectives, but our plan of action will always remain unknown by the people.”
The Saint then presents his position with subtle irony: “But we are an army whose ‘Commander’ knows each and every one of the enemies, who has observed and observes every one of their hidden actions, each one of their words, and even their very thoughts. Ask yourselves, under such conditions, can one speak of secret plans, clandestine actions and invisibility?”
And here Fr. Kolbe reveals the name of the “Commander” of his army: “It is the Immaculate Virgin, the refuge of sinners, but also the one who tramples the infernal Serpent. She will crush its head!”
It seems possible the Jews may actually not have any reason to feel left out of this thing; as it’s timed to coincide perfectly with their traditions.
This Orthodox/Roman day of atonement, September 1st, falls right in the middle of the Jewish month of repentance called “Elul”, which “is their annual time of preparation for the High Holidays.” This year it begins at sunset on August 15th and build in intensity for the next 28 days. The third week into it, (September 5th, 2015) is another Jewsish holy day marking the beginning of more intense prayers of repentence called “Selichot” which lead right into Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur.
But while our Pope Christ is focussing the world’s attention on its supposed “sins” against mother earth; traditional Jews are supposed to be doing penance in rembrance of their anscestors’sin of idolatry which caused Moses to angrily throw down and break the original tablets of the 10 commandments. According to some — this month of Elul represents the time that Moses spent on Mount Sinai praying for 40 days for God to forgive the people, before being commanded to prepare the second set of tablets. http://www.jewfaq.org/elul.htm
Correction to that last paragraph:
meant to write -our Pope/(vicar of Christ)
Who should be focusing the attention of the Jews and everyone else in the world, on their need to accept Jesus as their Savior and King, and to repent of rejecting Him, His Church and all it teaches, in order to save their souls.
I think they believe everything is God but some parts of God just have not realized it yet. This might be Hinduism. Not sure.
Fr Cekada called into Catholic Answers Live once during their “rad-trad” episode. He began to bring up the way V2 uses “People of God” to refer to the Church and they cut him off and jumped all over him saying “of course the Catholic Church is the ‘People of God'”…yadayadayada.
We’ll this new document just proves further the re-definition of the word. It’s in reality a re-definition of the Church. A new doctrine that contradicts infallible settled doctrine. Hence, it is to be rejected via the infallible settled dogma of the First Vatican Council. Truth don’t change.
I dont hold the sedevacantist postion and disagree with some views held by the diamond brothers but this video reveals alot about francis.
Atonement for their idolatry. Which is what Pope Francis is promoting continually with his oppressive naturalism. Lord have mercy.
“…likely to go down in history as the most important religious text of our time…” – that’s like – hmm, what could I say? What’s like “the most important religious text” (out of the Vatican) of this time of diabolical disorientation, of prelates with “itching ears”, who seek the approval of worldly men?
Ok, one try: It’s like the “best” turd in a pile of turds.
But, of course, it’s not even that!
(I apologize for the pornography; parents, cover your childrens’ eyes.)
A World Day of Prayer in praise of the Creator of Creation would be nice.
Thank the Lord that I am WAY past the point where the words of non-popes worry me. The shame is that there is so much division between the maybe 5% who have a clue (sedes and trads). I blame the so called “traditional” bishops and cardinals who are failing their flock by sticking to the satanically inspired dictates of the V2 council. I will never believe that the burke’s and schnieder’s of this world could possibly be so damned stupid….they know what they are doing. I was lost not even 5 years ago and yet I saw the light; how could these 60 and 70 year old men who were TRAINED in seminaries….all SO MUCH more intelligent than I could ever be….not see it? Shame on anyone who gives the smallest benefit of the doubt to ANYONE who adheres in ANY WAY to ANYTHING regarding the false religion of vatican 2. It is evil.
2 Thessalonians 2:11-12 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie
Absolutely!!! Amen!!! Halleluja!!!
I have long owed you a response on “eucharistic miracles” in the NO church:
“False miracles are nothing new in salvation history — Pharaoh’s wizards worked them against Moses and Aaron, albeit to no avail: “And Pharao called the wise men and the magicians: and they also by Egyptian enchantments and certain secrets did in like manner. And they every one cast down their rods, and they were turned into serpents: but Aaron’ s rod devoured their rods” (Ex 7:11-12). How much more deceptive must things be with the Antichrist, who will deceive even the elect, if it were possible!
The key point to remember is that Almighty God works miracles only in confirmation of the truth, not of falsehood. But a Eucharistic miracle in the “New Mass”, if it were genuine, would give credence to the Modernist religion, to a “bastard rite” (Abp. Lefebvre’s words), to “a key part of the new religion” that “does harm in itself (Williamson). Impossible!”
Peace be to you. Don’t worry I’m not going to offer you a cyber handshake hahaha. I’m busy at the moment will reply later today. Have a look at this
Peter, I would suggest that a plausible explanation for this is that Our Blessed Lord is letting the faithful know that He is indeed made truly present (Body, Blood, Soul & Divinity) on the altars of the Novus Ordo regardless of any inherent abuses, outrages and sacrileges. This would be a miracle in confirmation of the truth!…..Are you suggesting that the consecration is invalid and that Our Lord is not made truly present? In my opinion (little as it is) this is a bold statement and a very dangerous assertion. If Our Blessed Lord is indeed made present then this in of itself, as you know is a most astounding miracle and Our Lord should not be abandoned (by those of us who can see the truth) but worshipped and consoled during these evil times…..In Charity, to suggest that these miracles are diabolical, for me is bordering on blasphemy.
Yes, there is much to discuss on this subject. Please forgive me if I don’t respond to your comment now. Louie has set very reasonable rules and I’m trying not to infringe them. If I respond, I will inflame a major debate which is completely off topic. I should not refer to the subject again, until there is a suitable post. I recently got into trouble with Hoc in the same way. Things seemed a bit quiet, so I thought I would pop in an answer I’ve owed john6 for a long time. John6 don’t answer now. Let’s leave it until the right time. I’ve watched the video. Sorry guys, my mistake. 🙂
Yeah. Thing is with the conman – with the fraud – black is white and white is grey, just cause they say.
Honestly, there will be self-professed ‘Jews’ on the planet closer to the Blood of Christ than VII and its Heresiarch, Bergoglio.
Why was I ever born?
My entire life has been filled
with trouble, sorrow, and shame.
Yes. We have a World Day of Prayer and Praise already. It’s called Sunday and because we are people who like rituals and tradition by nature, we repeat it every week. We are so blessed to know that we cannot go wrong with this day, because Our Dear Father in Heaven gave it to us.
He knows us so well, what we like, what we need, what we can do – because He created us. So typical of modern man – novelties!!! We seem to have a horror of anything from our past – got to invent new ‘days’ because we find the old ones boring. Especially we want to invent new rituals – with the emphasis on WE. We are afraid to buck the world and go with the days He has assigned for our worship. Foolish!
The poor Jews. They know and believe so much, but as we see so often, they will not bend the knee to Our Lord Jesus – that appears to be asking too much.
One little note: is it just me or is it odd that several of the so-called rabbis Louie quotes are women? Poor gals. Forgotten their God-given role as wives and mothers, support for the whole world in its families – able to co-operate directly with God in creating new children for His Glory. So much energy wasted on things of the world.
Just like Our Lord’s Life. The imitation of Christ – we can’t get out of this life before it is ‘finished’ unless we sin mortally by suicide. When Jesus said “it is finished” as He breathed His last breath it was a living lesson for us – we must walk through this life to get to the next – what God’s will is for us is very plain – every moment unfolds before us – we have no choice but to make our way through it. When we feel pain and sorrow we must remember that we too will say with our last breath – it is finished. Right on the other side is Paradise! It will all have been worth it. Just as Jesus taught – He suffered the pain and sorrow knowing there would be a ‘finish.’
What is being taught now, by our hierarchy, and every false religion, the Jews, Muslims and other pagans, is that there must be no pain and sorrow now – every last penny must be spent to stop pain and sorrow – now the focus in on the poor, but it has been on ‘health,’ beauty, youth, higher (unnecessary) education, power and on and on.
The poor Jews have bought right into this foolishness. They used to know better in the dim dark past. They could see, right before their very eyes, God’s Commandments – what happened when they disobeyed, and what happened when they obeyed.
It appears they have forgotten their past, just like we are being taught to forget ours. They are, in a way, our elder brothers, but are we following them down to hell, or are we dragging them down with us? If we treat God’s Commandments like the Jews do in this modern day, we are following them. If we refuse to do the hard work of converting them we are dragging them to hell with us.
No problem….Peace of Christ to you.
That is a good analogy. The hand is quicker than the eye. While the hierarchy keeps our minds focused on ‘the poor’ and the ‘environment’ they are pulling down the Truths shared by God to His people.
The old bait and switch! Imagine the mind that can think that the Truths God has given us need tweaking – because we have ‘changed.’ The sheer gall is amazing. It is to really, with knowledge aforethought, put oneself higher than The Creator!
To get back to the Jews I often wonder just what it was about Jesus that they could not believe? Was it that He was poor and had no power? So I guess if we see priests and bishops, and popes puffed up with pride they are just like the Jews of old. They as a group think they know what God wants, and it’s not what Jesus told them He wants.
Barbara asked: I often wonder just what it was about Jesus that they could not believe?
The rabbis wanted a Che Guevara. That they got the Son of God, Second Person of the Most Holy Trinity, wasn’t good enough.
I too am very surprised at how few comments there have been in the last 2 blogs. To be honest i thought it was going to go off the wall so to speak with the blogs given fair reason to talk about “jews” not your next door neighbour jew or your jewish friends etc. but as scriputure says those that calls themselves jews but are not they are of the synagogue of satan rev 2,9 & 3,9.
It you trace these problems back to their origin you will find the biggest enemy on earth against Christendom & our holy mother church are the talmudic zionist international jewry this is the real enemy. they own the central banks they create and manipulate wars to furthur their agender they infiltrated the church years ago through freemasonary which is only 1 tenticle of the talmudic zionist jews cabal. There going to get their 3rd world war & like always out of chaos they will further their agender which is to establish the N W O with their man the Antichrist to be worshiped as God ( he will last 3 1/2 years ) it will be then the mark of the beast the implatable microchip will be mandatory world wide thats why all technology in the world is heading towards a cashless society apple pay , bit coin etc digital currency is their aim totall controll thats why the big economic crash will come because out of that will be their solution and unfortunately alot of people will fall for it. Francis is the biblical false prophet preparing the way for the zionists messiah the Antichrist a man in the flesh who will cliam to be God this is where i beleive the scripture deceiving even the elect will come into play. Lets not forget the antichrist will be able to perform so called miracles but they will be of the devil demonic acts. expect him to come onto the world stage during ww3 as the great peace maker. Interesing times for all who live to see it.
Sorry for bad grammar and spelling writing on my phone.

Moshe was talking to his psychiatrist. “I had a weird dream recently,” he says. “I saw my mother but then I noticed she had your face. I found this so worrying that I immediately awoke and couldn’t get back to sleep. I just stayed there thinking about it until 7am. I got up, made myself a slice of toast and some coffee and came straight here. Can you please help me explain the meaning of my dream?”
The psychiatrist kept silent for some time, then said, “One slice of toast and coffee? Do you call that a breakfast?”
Please, someone correct me if I’m wrong, but I’m pretty sure that Nostra Aetate insists that Christ reconciled the Jews and the people of the New Covenant in such a way as to make both one in Himself. (cf NA 4).
## That is what St Paul says Christ has done, in the passage referred to by NA 4, yes. The two, formerly enemies, are one in Christ, IOW, the unity the Apostle speaks of is within the Church – St.Paul is not talking of relations between Gentiles and Jews in the world at large. Since Christians are united in the Holy Spirit, Jewish believers in Christ & Gentile believers in Christ are united in the Holy Spirit, as one People of God & one Body in Christ.
NA can hardly be faulted for making the teaching of the Apostle its own. STM that’s a pretty traditional thing to do.
