As most readers are likely already aware, a video has been blazing a trail through social media today showing a man removing the infamous Pachamama statues from the Church of Santa Maria della Traspontina and throwing them into the Tiber River.
Reaction has been as one might expect, with those in conservative and traditional circles applauding the gesture an act of heroism, while those to the left decried it as childish, unhelpful and sinful.
The incident was addressed at today’s Vatican press briefing by Prefect of the Vatican Dicastery for Communications, Dr. Paolo Ruffini, who weighed-in saying:
Stealing something from a church and throwing it into the river is not a gesture of bravado. We have said that the statues represented life, fertility and Mother Earth and such an act goes against the spirit of dialogue which should animate everybody.
With every passing day it becomes clearer that the institution presently operating out of Rome under the name “Catholic” is anything but; rather, it is an imposter that is merely mimicking the Church of Christ.
You see, Ruffini spoke very well in denouncing those who would grieve the spirit of dialogue as this is the animating principle of the conciliar church for which he speaks; the same spirit that he insists, “should animate everybody.”
The Roman Catholic Church, by contrast, is concerned with her animating principle and so, like St. Paul, exhorts her members not to “grieve not the Holy Spirit of God” (Eph 4:30).
Ruffini’s comments also serve to confirm that the statuettes are not what the defenders of all things Bergoglian still insist that they are, Marian. They are representations of Mother Earth, otherwise known in certain indigenous Amazonian cultures as Pachamama.
Yes, but were they idols?
In short, Hell yes! They were not placed in a museum, but rather before the altar in a church prominently placed near the entrance to St. Peter’s Square.
We’ve considered what the PR staff at Conciliar Church Headquarters had to say about the idols that were flung into the Tiber River this morning. Now, let’s consider what Almighty God had to say about how such things should be treated.
Their graven things thou shalt burn with fire … Destroy all the places in which the nations, that you shall possess, worshipped their gods upon high mountains, and hills, and under every shady tree: Overthrow their altars, and break down their statues, burn their groves with fire, and break their idols in pieces: destroy their names out of those places. (Deuteronomy 7:25, 12:2-3)
Ruffini concluded his remarks on the incident this morning saying, “I don’t know what else to say. It was a theft.”
Fr. Giacomo Costa, S.J., Secretary of the Commission for Information, agreed, saying, “Stealing objects is never constructive.”
If this be so, then we would have to believe that God violated the Seventh Commandment when He ordered the people Israel to overthrow altars, break down statues, break idols...
This, however, is no problem for the Captains of Newchurch in Modernist Rome!
One will recall that the Heretic-in-Chief, Jorge Bergoglio (aka the God of Surprises) has already gone on record as saying that the Divine Law is unjust (see Amoris Laetitia, no. 301), that Almighty God occasionally asks us to break the Sixth Commandment (see Amoris Laetitia, no. 303), and that He was just plain wrong in commanding capital punishment.
Hey, at least these demonic bastards are consistent.
Demonic for sure.
You must break the idols in pieces or burn them with fire. Now that would have made quite the impression in the video, instead of tossing them in the drink.
I suppose that now they will just go swimming for ’em, and worship them some more.
They have the buildings, and we have the Faith.
I’m so happy and grateful to the man that did this, and I hope that he will never be discovered.
Too bad that so many who identify as Catholic wouldn’t destrpy or feel the same way about destroying the documents of Vatican II. These pagan idols pale in comparison.
My own father who raised me and thinks that he is Catholic is now attending worship services in union with a man who has publicly apostatized and publicly worships demons and wields a Wiccan stang. He thinks it’s bad that the Pope does these things. Am I still on Earth, I mean that is REfreakingTARDED. The man who raised me was not retarded; I don’t know what the heck is wrong with everyone. I saw this one Twitter account go, What do we do if we go to Mass and they have Pachamama there on the altar? People, you don’t have to go to Mass if there is none but you better bet your sweet bippie that you will burn in Hell for eternity if you worship a Pagan Demon from Hell. Just FYI. I don’t have all the answers here, pretty sure we’re mid Apocalypse, anticipating the big Antichrist reveal any day now, but this I know with certainty. Don’t worship the Pachamama, people. Really, you should not do that.
Given the accelerating attacks on all things Catholic, preparing for martyrdom is not a bad idea. Stay close to Christ and His Blessed Mother (she’s our mother, too).
“If any of you put a stumbling block before one of these little ones who believe in me, it would be better for you if a great millstone were fastened around your neck and you were drowned in the depth of the sea.”
The clowns in the Vatican need to go swimming with the fish too…
“Stealing something from a church and throwing it into the river is not a gesture of bravado.”
This is a classic example of begging the question, having/making the hearer presume in the first place that it is actually a “possession of the Church”, when it isn’t.
Which was the whole reason for taking it out, it didn’t belong to/in the Church. But however, as mentioned before, the anti-church is filled with what doesn’t belong to/in the genuine Catholic Church, and removed almost everything which does.
What a mess.
Good Tuesday morning james__o,
The church of Antichrist, all dressed up Catholic, yet desolate of all things Christ Jesus: no Vicar of Christ, yet the vicar of Antichrist in his pose as Christ’s Vicar; no holy Sacraments, yet the metaphysical accidental forms remain–as of bread and wine–, of those holy Sacraments commanded into being by the Son of God made true Man, whereby the substantial forms of the false sacraments, as the wonders of Antichrist, remain as bread and wine without Transubstantiation; and no Gospel of Jesus the Christ, rather the false gospel of the false Christ as Antichrist. Amen. The would be Catholic laity themselves, utterly deceived into believing that they are indeed Catholic, while the worship of the Antichrist in his church, masquerading as the Catholic Church, will take them to Hell, as they receive, “the operation of error to believe lying”, which the Apostle warned us of in 2 Thess 2. Amen. Jesus the Christ commanded that His true disciples must know the signs of the prophetic times in which they live. Amen. With His commands He alone provides the superabundant grace to fulfill them. Amen. Alleluia. Pray for the grace to see the desolation of Antichrist which we now live, as the world yet awaits the “signs” of his coming, as if they are all not already fulfilled. Amen. God bless you and yours’. In caritas.
God bless the guys who did this deed. I wish it was Bishop Fellay and Father Pagliarani. Now that would really be something!
From “The Destruction of Christian Tradition”:
“Witness the words of St. Hilary of Poitiers, who advised the Catholics of Milan to abandon their churches and assemble in the woods and caverns, rather than to remain under the Arian Bishop Auxentius: “Of one thing I bid you beware—of Antichrist. The love of walls ill possesses you; ill do you venerate the Church of God
in roofs and edifices. Ill do you bear under these for the sake of peace. Safer to me are the mountains, the woods, lakes, prisons, and deep caverns; for in these the prophets, either remaining or thrown, prophecy with the Spirit of God.””
Ill do you bear under a false hierarchy.
I agree. The priests have to destroy the idols.
Archbishop Lefebvre speaking to his priests:
“But you will not forget that opposed to the reign of Our Lord Jesus Christ there is the reign of Satan. The reign of Satan has never perhaps been more extensive and penetrated everywhere into all domains as it has today. It surrounds us on all sides. What is the reign of Satan? The reign of Satan is the reign of scandal but scandal understood in its true sense understood in the sense of that which leads us to sin and, as a consequence, which leads us to HELL. That is scandal! Scandal is that which leads to sin, that which draws one into sin and indeed the reign of scandal is to be found in this world. Much is scandal around us, much is contrary to the law of God. Henceforth, in society, even the commandments of God are not only ignored but they are publicly and officially attacked. Laws are passed which are contrary to the law of God. All of this is legalized, officialized; the magistrates, the doctors are obliged to do some things which are contrary to the law of God, which are unjust, which are horrible, abominable! All of this in a time when one believes that our civilization has never been as great or as beautiful! On the contrary! This civilization bears the mark of SATAN and it bears the mark of HELL!
You will denounce these scandals in order to prevent them from leading souls to hell. You will not be afraid to denounce all that which drags souls into sin.
In order to have this courage and this force, you will ask these graces particularly of the Blessed Virgin Mary. You know, my dear friends, Mary is our Mediatrix Mother. She is the Mediatrix of all graces.”
“This victory that the Virgin Mary desires is a victory against Satan and, consequently, against sin. The Virgin Mary is the symbol of those who do not want to sin, who do not want to disobey God. This is the battle that the Virgin Mary is going to wage through the ages. So it is a great lesson that God gives us in announcing the birth of His Mother, in announcing that we shall have a Mother, a heavenly Mother, a Mother who will do battle. So we shall do battle together with her and we must do battle against the common enemy – Satan, and all those who with Satan are against God.”
“It is primarily the priest’s obligation to lead us in the battle to defend the Faith. Saint Thomas Aquinas did not leave it to the laity to combat the Manichees. St. Francis de Sales did not leave it the laity to combat Protestantism. We laity have our part, but it belongs to the nature of the priesthood to publicly defend the Faith.
This is why we loved Archbishop Lefebvre. He led us in the battle.”
It would be better if the idolators were tossed in the river than just the idols. They will just bring in more and more idols into those once holy places.
I found this open letter written by Bishop Fellay to Pope John Paul II, 10-27-1999. Here’s the beginning:
“Most Holy Father,
In 1986 Archbishop Lefebvre and Bishop de Castro Mayer considered that it was their duty to publicly reprimand You, according to the example of St. Paul (Gal. 2:11), on account of the Assisi prayer meeting, to which You invited the principal world “religions”. This public sin against the first commandment of God and against the first article of the Creed, this great offense against the Sovereign Majesty of the only true God, One and Three, caused an immense scandal to the faithful.
How could You, Vicar of Christ, Vicar of the solus Sanctus, solus Dominus, solus Altissimus, place Yourself as one among the representatives of the “religions” which deny His divinity? How could You humiliate the Catholic Church, the only Spouse of Our Lord Jesus Christ (Eph 5:26, 27) by bringing it down to the level of organizations founded not by God, but by the will of man (Jn 1:13)? How could You invite the followers of “religions” which refuse the only Mediator between God and men, Christ Jesus (I Tim 2:5) or which, by denying the existence of one only, personal God are nothing more than atheism and idolatry? How could You justify this invitation by affirming that the Holy Spirit dwells mysteriously in every man, whereas St. Paul teaches the contrary (Rm 8:9)?
At the same time as You are going to renew the Assisi scandal, on October 28, at St. Peter’s Square in Rome, we dare to solemnly protest against this sin and, invoking the authority of Your quite recent predecessors, and to confront You with the condemnation that they made of this, as well as of the underlying errors: Pius IX in the Syllabus (Propositions 16-18); Leo XIII condemning the Paris Congress of Religions (Letter
of September 15, 1899) and Pius XI in Mortalium animos. By these “inter-religious” meetings You do not confirm Your brethren in the Faith. Much to the contrary, You promote an immense indifferentism and You provoke division within the bosom of the Church. Moreover, the humanist, earthly and naturalist themes taken up at these meetings cause the Church to fall down from its entirely divine, eternal and supernatural mission to the level of the Freemasonic ideals of world peace outside of the only Prince of Peace, Our Lord Jesus Christ…”
Thank you, Maryiloveher—-where is the Bishop Fellay of 1999?
I love Louie’s take on these types of events. It always make me laugh, as only he could put it. Clarity rocks.
“With every passing day it becomes clearer that the institution presently operating out of Rome under the name “Catholic” is anything but;”
Ah yes, the sedevacantist heretics miss no opportunity to spread the heresy that the Modernists have concurred Christ and destroyed His Church. Louie Verrecchio is striving to make himself the Heretic in Chief of this anti-Catholic cult, whose false religion he now proudly professes. In the world of sedevacantism the blind have always lead the blind.
“This, however, is no problem for the Captains of Newchurch in Modernist Rome! One will recall that the Heretic-in-Chief, Jorge Bergoglio (aka the God of Surprises) has already gone on record as saying that the Divine Law is unjust (see Amoris Laetitia, no. 301), that Almighty God occasionally asks us to break the Sixth Commandment (see Amoris Laetitia, no. 303), and that He was just plain wrong in commanding capital punishment.”
Hey, at least these demonic bastards are consistent.
Louie, you overlooked his latest pronouncement…in an interview with his favorite 95 year old former Catholic reporter….”…he doesn’t believe Christ is God.”….a great man yes, but Son of God…no..” Not exact words but full meaning is the same. He doesn’t believe Chris is God. Can’t make this up..
“Ah yes, the sedevacantist heretics…”
Ok, now that you have made that statement, I think it’s time to offer some proof, preferably from high sources. Define “sedevacantism”, and then proceed it prove it through Catholic teachings.
I’m sure that if it is indeed heresy, all that are afflicted with this pernicious error will be quite grateful to you for revealing the truth.
“Ok, now that you have made that statement, I think it’s time to offer some proof, preferably from high sources. Define “sedevacantism”, and then proceed it prove it through Catholic teachings.”
I’ve already tried (twice) to get him to do just that, james_o.
“A man that is a heretic, after the first and second admonition, avoid:
Knowing that he, that is such an one, is subverted, and sinneth, being condemned by his own judgment.” (Titus 3:10-11)
