On July 1, the Occupied Vatican announced that Jorge Bergoglio (stage name, Francis), who daily betrays the Lord with his mouth via the art of heresy, has appointed Víctor Manuel Fernandez, author of “The Art of Kissing: Heal me with your mouth,” as Prefect of the Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith (formerly the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith).
Fernandez (aka “Tucho,” Spanish slang for the Yiddish, tuchas) is widely known as Bergoglio’s go-to theologian and the ghostwriter of his 2016 Love Letter to Satan, Amoris Laetitia.
In a letter addressed to Tucho, Jorge made his expectations known, saying that the “central purpose” of the Dicastery is “to guard the teaching that flows from the faith.”
Kinda sounds Catholic, right?
To be very clear, however, “the faith” to which Jorge refers is not the faith that comes to us from the Apostles, rather it is the conciliar faith. This is why he couldn’t bring himself to plainly suggest that his Dicastery must “guard doctrine.”
You see, the faith that comes to us from the Apostles, imparted via the Church’s doctrinal expressions, doesn’t flow, it is transmitted (Latin, tradere, which gives us the word, tradition), often in immutable form.
Conciliar “teaching,” by contrast, does flow, very much like human excrement, it is malleable, subject to change, odious, and deadly to consume. (NOTE: Forgive the nasty imagery, but it seems rather fitting when discussing the man who introduced the word “coprophagia” into the anti-papal lexicon.)
Jorge went on to tell Tucho that he is not to act as one who “critiques and condemns,” a veiled critique and condemnation of those who once served as heads of the Holy Office, and even more so, of Josef Ratzinger, former head of the CDF.
[Hypocrisy (noun): The practice of claiming to have moral standards or beliefs to which one’s own behavior does not conform.]
Bergoglio lifted the veil entirely by accusing the previous heads of the erstwhile Holy Office and CDF of not just taking an outdated approach, but of sinful behavior:
The Dicastery over which you will preside in other times came to use immoral methods. Those were times when, rather than promoting theological knowledge, possible doctrinal errors were pursued. What I expect from you is certainly something very different.
Get that? Opposing doctrinal errors is immoral! You can’t make this stuff up!
Indeed, to the conciliar mind, promoting theological knowledge and opposing doctrinal errors are mutually exclusive activities. It is in this context alone – one of ridicule and distortion – that Jorge feels comfortable saying the “D” word aloud.
Bergoglio tells Tucho that “differing currents of thought in philosophy, theology and pastoral practice, if open to being reconciled by the Spirit … will preserve Christian doctrine more effectively than any control mechanism.”
In this sense, so-called “Christian doctrine” is ever open to change according to contemporary, “concrete” circumstances. Given that references to “concrete realities” were weaved into Amoris Laetitia more than a dozen times in order to justify adultery, Tucho is a wise and logical choice to head the Bergoglian DDF, i.e., he is clearly simpatico with exactly the sort of reconciling Spirit that Jorge has in mind.
“What I expect from you,” Jorge told the Kissmeister turned Prefect, “is certainly something very different” than implementing “control mechanisms.”
Yes, different than what was delivered by men like Cardinals Merry del Val and Ottaviani, but not entirely different than Ratzinger.
But wait! Ratzinger was the Vatican’s “Doctrinal Watchdog!” He was known as the Panzerkardinal!
Sure, but let’s be clear, Ratzinger was also a man of the Council; an ecumenist, a fervent defender of religious liberty, and a constant source of comfort to the Jews in their unbelief.
Ratzinger’s crime, according to Bergoglio, is not that he wasn’t a modernist – he was – he just didn’t conciliar hard enough.
As Benedict XVI, he continued to fall short, e.g., though he denigrated and demoted the Traditional Latin Mass by insisting that it is the same Roman Rite as the Novus Ordo, he failed to take steps to eradicate it. Though he hobnobbed with heretics and even held his own Assisi abomination, he didn’t declare that the false religions are willed by God.
You get the point.
While many tradservative commentators are treating Jorge’s Epistle to Tucho as further evidence that we are living under a disastrous pontificate of unprecedented severity, the fact of the matter is that Bergoglio’s letter is perfectly in line with the ethos of the Council, i.e., Jorge gets no points for originality.
Bergoglio, Ratzinger, Tucho… all of these men are cut from conciliar cloth.
As I stated in my last podcast, Francis most certainly is undermining the Deposit of Faith, but it’s not his program, it is the Council’s program. He’s merely applying it more aggressively and forthrightly than those who came before him.
He went on to discourage Tucho from “implying the imposition of a single way of expressing” Divine Revelation. We have a name for the way in which the Church expresses revealed and related truths, it’s called the doctrine of the faith, and in some cases, dogma.
Elsewhere in his letter, Bergoglio condescendingly refers to such expressions as “a desk-bound theology.” In short, Jorge is encouraging his new DDF head to join him (and all other men of the Council) in openly promoting modernism, that is, to repudiate the Oath Against Modernism which states:
“I sincerely hold that the doctrine of faith was handed down to us from the apostles through the orthodox Fathers in exactly the same meaning and always in the same purport.”
In 1967, Paul VI abolished the Oath Against Modernism, but the Council had already effectively ceased to adhere to its tenets years earlier.
For example, in Lumen Gentium the Council stated that “the Church is necessary for salvation” (cf LG 14). In the Decree on Ecumenism, however, it introduced the wholesale novelty of “imperfect communion” in order to bolster the claim that the Lord uses the communities of the heretics and schismatics as “means of salvation” (UR 3).
See? See how these teachings are “reconciled by the Spirit!”
Even within the confines of just one document, Dignitatis Humanae, the Council boldly declares that it “leaves untouched traditional Catholic doctrine on the moral duty of men and societies toward the true religion and toward the one Church of Christ,” and then promptly set about decimating the same.
This is another example of the “reconciling spirit” to which Bergoglio refers in action.
The point of all of this activity, according to Jorge’s letter to Tucho, is to “convincingly present a God who loves, who forgives, who saves, who liberates, who promotes people and calls them to fraternal service.”
I don’t know about you, but whenever I see “fraternal service,” I smell a Freemason.
In any case, one notes the utter absence in Jorge’s letter of a God who reigns over all things as King of kings and Lord of lords, a God who calls men to sin no more and who freely dispenses the grace of perseverance, a God who exercises perfect justice, i.e., the one true God.
Make no mistake, the god of the Council is a false god, the church of the Council is a false church, and the head of this church is a false pope.
