Pope Francis! Please Use the Fullness of Your Office and Declare the Fifth Marian Dogma: Mary Mediatrix of All Grace


“Mary, strong as an army, give victory to our troops.  We are so weak and our enemy waxes furious with such arrogance.  But with your standard, we feel sure of overcoming him;  he knows the strength of your foot, he fears the majesty of your glance.

Save us, O Mary, fair as the moon, bright as the sun, terrible as an army set in battle array.”                                                                                                                                                 Pope Pius XII  December 8, 1953, proclaiming the solemn opening of the Marian Year.

Why does Mary have to ask for this title and its proclamation as the Fifth Marian Dogma?  She Keeps Visiting Earth and Asking for the Involvement of Her Children in God’s plans … Why?

Dr. Mark Miravale, Associate Professor of Theology and Mariology at the Franciscan University of Steubenville, who authored a book entitled ‘Mary: Coredemptrix, Mediatrix and Advocate’ explains it well:

When Jesus came to the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked his disciples,  “Who do people say I am?” They replied: “Some say John the Baptist;  others say Elijah;  and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.”  But what about you?:  Who do you say I am?”

Simon Peter answered:  “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”  Jesus replied:  “Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by flesh and blood but My Father in heaven.  And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my Church, and the gates of hell will not overcome it.  I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven;  whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

Peter, the first Pope, revealed to the world the first Dogma.  He was inspired by God to speak it.  We can see from this that God desires the involvement of man in His plans for humanity. What an awesome God.  This is the way of heaven in dealing with ‘earthlings’

Mary, who is “full of grace”, and, who can have all the grace she wants, is held back from flooding the world with graces by the free will of man.

If the Peter of today were to declare and affirm that Mary is the Co-Redemptrix, and, Mary Mediatrix … she would be able to rain magnificent graces of all beauty and color which we can picture as radiant floods of light pouring on the darkness.  She is held back by the will of mankind … we can see from the story of St. Peter that God wants mankind to be involved in salvation … specifically He wants His Vicar on earth to speak for us.

We already know that Mary is “full of grace”  She was “nature’s solitary boast” (Shakespeare) and she always will be … as eternity is forever.  She will always be full of grace therefore.  Paraphrasing from the video of Dr. Miravale 

And she wants to rain it upon her children.  Of course we have some grace now.  But the torrents that would flow down were the proclamation … which heaven wants … was proclaimed by the office of Peter …. are unimaginable!  The world, spinning into darkness begs … ‘light on darkness pour’

Our Lady of All Nations … one of so many visits of Mary to earth wherein she asked for the title of Mary Mediatrix.   Approved by the Church.  

Australian High Court Allows Cardinal Pell to Appeal Sex Abuse Conviction

Cardinal George Pell, Credit: Alexey Gotovskly/CNA

Melbourne, Australia, Nov. 12, 2019 / 3:51 pm (CNA) – The Australian High Court announced Tuesday that Cardinal George Pell has been granted leave to appeal an August decision by the Court of appeal in Victoria to uphold his conviction for child sexual abuse.

Pell’s appeal to the High Court in Canberra, Australia’s supreme court, was his last legal avenue to overturn a conviction which has divided opinion in the country and internationally.

The cardinal was convicted Dec. 11, 2018, on five charges that he sexually abused two choir boys after Sunday Mass while he was Archbishop of Melbourne in 1966 and 1997.

He was sentenced to six years in prison, of which he must serve at least three years and eight months before being eligible to apply for parole.

The cardinal, 78, who remains an archbishop and a member of the College of Cardinals, was returned to prison immediately after court adjourned.  He has been held in solitary confinement and has not been permitted to celebrate Mass in prison.

Pell was convicted of forcing two choir choir boys to commit sex acts while fully vested in his Sunday Mass garb, almost immediately after Mass in the priests’ sacristry at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in 1996.  Pell was at that time Archbishop of Melbourne.  He was also convicted of fondling one of the boys in a corridor in 1997.

The prosecution rested on the testimony of one of the alleged victims – the one reported to have suffered two instances of abuse by Pell.  The other victim died in 2014 and was unable to testify, but in 2001 had denied to his mother that any abuse occurred while he was a member of the choir.

Pell has maintained his innocence, with his defense making central the arguent that the alleged crimes would have been, under the circumstances, “simply impossible.”

The cardinal’s defenders have contended that the sacristy abuse allegations are not possible given the high traffic after Mass and the obstructing nature of the Mass vestments.

Pell had appealed to the Court of appeal in Victoria.  Three judges considered his case and dismissed his procedural appeal.  The judges were divided on Pell’s primary ground of appeal, that the decision of the jury was “unreasonable.”

At particular issue was the question of whether the jury which convicted Pell had properly weighed all of the evidence presented in his defense, or reached the determination of guilt despite the demonstration of clear “reasonable doubt” that he committed the crimes with which he was charged.

Chief Justice Anne Ferguson and Court President Chris Maxwell formed the majority in favor of rejecting Pell’s appeal that the jury verdict was unreasonable on the evidence presented, finding that it was open to the jury to find beyond “reasonable doubt about the truth of the complainant’s account.”

In an extensive dissent from the majority finding, Justice Mark Weinberg noted that the entirety of the evidence against Pell consisted of the testimony of a single accuser, whereas more than 20 witnesses were produced to testify against his narrative.

“Even the reasonable possibility” that what the witnesses who testified to these matters may have been true must inevitably have led to an acquittal,” Weinberg wrote, concluding that Pell had, in effect, been improperly asked to establish the “impossibility” of his guilt and not merely reasonable doubt.

All three judges granted further leave to appeal on the ground of the unreasonableness of the jury’s conviction.

Media commentators and members of the Australian legal community have voiced concerns about the reasoning of the two-judge majority opinion and the wider implications its argumentation could have for standards of evidence in criminal trials.

Holy See press office director Matteo Bruni responded to the Court of Appeal decision by saying that “the Holy See acknowledges the court’s decision to dismiss Cardinal Pell’s appeal,” while reiterating its “respect for the Australian judicial system.”

“As the proceedings continue to develop, the Holy See recalls that the Cardinal has always maintained his innocence throughout the judicial process and that it is his right to appeal to the High Court, Bruni said at the time.





Pope Benedict XVI condemns Idolatry

Something good this way comes!

From Rome

The complete transcript of this Homily can be found in 7 languages (here).

Let us not imagine, that the St Gallen Mafia and their agenda were not already known to Pope Benedict in 2008. It has been shown in other cases that his entire Pontificate was one long preaching against their errors, heresies and apostasy, for he knew what was to come.

Here are some excerpts of his Homily on Sept 13, 2008, in front of Notre Dame, at Paris. What he said that day is perhaps the reason why the French government took the burning of that Church so lightly, because the Holy Father’s homily directly attacks the Satanism behind Globalism:

In the First Letter of Saint Paul to the Corinthians, we discover, in this Pauline year inaugurated on 28 June last, how much the counsels given by the Apostle remain important today. “Shun the worship of…

Amazonian Woman who led Vatican Tree Planting Ceremony Reveals its Pagan Significance

There is “divinity present in the Amazonian soil” said Ednamar, the indiginous woman.  Pictured is the plant given to Francis at the Offertory of the closing Mass of the Sin Nod, a false god bowl of dirt with “divinity” in it).  It being placed on the altar of God.

  Is it “the abomination of desolation?”

Rome, November 8, 2019  Life Site News.   The female indigenous leader who planted a tree alongside Pope Francis in the Vatican Gardens ahead of the Amazon Synod was clear about the syncretistic and pagan meaning of the act.

She explains:  It was intended to “satisfy the hunger of Mother Earth and reconnect with the “divinity present in the Amazonian soil.”

In an October 4 statement that went under the radar during the Synod itself, Ednamar de Oliveira Viana of the Maues region in Brazil, says of the Vatican Garden tree-planting ceremony:

“To plant … is believing in a growing and fruitful life to satisfy the hunger of Mother Earth’s creation.  This brings us to our origin by reconnecting divine energy and teaching us the way back to the Creator Father.”

Francis deliberately desecrated the altar of St. Peter’s with demonic dirt.  Sacrilege marched upon sacrilege led by a Sherman Tank with the man who governs the Catholic Church in its’ drivers seat.  It is obvious that he wants to destroy the Church.

Thank you to the Cardinals and Bishops who have spoken up ?  God Bless you!

But where are the rest of you?

Priests!  Come Forward!  Your people will support you!  We are praying for you all.  We are praying for the man in the drivers seat too.  Little Saint Jacinta asked us to.

If only … If only … the prior Popes had obeyed Our Lady of Fatima and consecrated Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

UNEP Pachamama Course

By Edward Pentin:

The United Nations Environment Programme published a children’s textbook in 2002 interestingly entitled Pachamama — a course on why the world’s environment is being degraded and an assessment of “how our Mother Earth is doing today.”

The UNEP says in the book that “Pachamama” means not just ‘Mother Earth’ in Inca culture but also “living in total harmony with the Earth and not from the Earth. It suggests a lifestyle in harmony with nature.”

During the Amazon Synod last month, what the Holy Father called “Pachamama” statues regularly appeared in churches, ceremonies and the synod hall. Pictures of indigenous people bowing down before them in the Vatican Gardens and in a church nearby led many faithful to see them as idols, leading Austrian Catholic Alexander Tschugguel to seize four of them and throw them into the Tiber.

The UNEP’s Pachamama course appears benign by…

Matrimony of Desire and Lifestyle Ecumenism

He defended the dogma “Outside the Church there is no salvation” The powers that be persecuted him relentlessly. I remember him speaking on Boston Common. He is surely in heaven now looking down on a Church in shambles. Perhaps it didn’t have to be if this dogma had not been blown to bits by ecumenism. Ah! What could have been !! Pray for us Father Feeney …

Driftless Catholic

“For they shall sow wind, and reap a whirlwind, there is no standing stalk in it, the bud shall yield no meal; and if it should yield, strangers shall eat it.” Osee (Hosea) 8:7

Once upon a time, a Feeneyite* writer — Charles Coulombe, I think — made some remark about Baptism of Desire. The remark went something like, “Have you ever heard of Matrimony of Desire? Doesn’t make sense, does it? Neither does Baptism of Desire.” In other words, neither implicit nor explicit desire for a sacrament realizes that sacrament.

Except that is what Pope Francis seems to think. The canon law requirements for sacramental matrimony don’t matter — that’s just legalism. The vast majority of marriages that would pass the canon law definition are actually null, while cohabitations are valid marriages. Why can’t we extend this type of rationalization to any type of relationship at all, heterosexual or not? It’s about…

Abp. Vigano: The Abomination of Idolatrous Rites has Entered the Sanctuary of God: Abp. Vigano

Life Site News:  Archbishop Vigano

ROME:  November 5, 2019  Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano is urging the reconsecration of St. Peter’s Basillica, in light of what he calls the “appalling idolatrous profanations” that have been committed in its walls through the veneration of the pachamama statue.

In a new interview on the Amazon Synod with LifeSiteNews, Archbishop Vigano has said:  “The abomination of idolatrous rites has entered the sanctuary of God and has given rise to a new form of apostasy whose seeds, which have been active for a long time, are growing with renewed vigor and effectiveness.?

He continues:  “The process of the internal mutation of the faith, which has been taking place in the Catholic Church for several decades, has seen with this Synod a dramatic acceleration towards the foundation of a new creed, summed up in a new kind of worship (cultus).  In the name of inculturation, pagan elements are infesting divine worship so as to transform it into an idolatrous cult.”

Clergy and laity alike “cannot remain indifferent to the idolatrous acts that we witnessed.” the archbishop insists.  “It is urgent that we rediscover the meaning of prayer, reparation and penance, of fasting, of “little sacrifices, of the Little Flowers, and above all of silent and prolonged adoration before the Blessed Sacrament.”

In this in-depth interview, we discuss with Archbishop Vigano what the ‘pachamama saga’ reveals about the state of the Church and how it is the logical consequence of other “aberrant” declarations made under the current pontificate.  We also talk about the synod’s final document, which he calls a “head-on-strike against the divine edifice” of the Church;  what the Amazon Synod reveals aobut “synodality”, and what its organizers have accomplished.

According to Archbishop Vigano,  the “Amazon paradigm” is aimed at fundamentally “transforming” the Catholic Church, is aligned with a “globalist” agenda and “serves as a catwalk to ferry what remains fo the Catholic edifice towards an indistinct universal religion.”

“For all of us Catholics, the landscape in the Holy Church is becoming darker by the day.” he says.  “If this satanic plan is successful, Catholics who adhere to it will in fact change religion, and the immense flock of Our Lord Jesus Christ will be reduced to a minority.”

“This minority will likely have much to suffer … but with him it will conquer,”  he says, concluding his remarks with the provocative, prophetic and timely words of the 14th century mystic and saint, Bridget of Sweden.”

Here below is our interview on the Amazon Synod with Archbishop carlo Maria Vigano.

LifeSiteNews: Your Excellency, how would you characterize the art of the synod narrative?  Is there an image that aptly summarizes it?

Archbishop Vigano:  The barque of the Church is in the grip of a raging storm.  To quell the tempest, those successors of the Apostles who have tried to leave Jeus on the shore, and who no longer perceive His presence, have begun to invoke the pachamama!

Jesus prophesied:  “When you see the desecrating sacrilege … there will be great tribulation, such as not been from the beginning of the world until now, now and never will be”  (Mt. 24:15;21

The abomination of idolatrous rites has entered the sanctuary of God and has given rise to a new form of apostasy, who seeds … which have been active for a long time … are growing with renewed vigor and effectiveness.  The process of the internal mutation of the faith, which has been taking place in the Catholic Church for several decades, has seen with this synod a dramatic acceleration towards the foundation of a new creed, summed up in a new kind of worship (cultus).  In the name of inculturation, pagan elements are infesting divine worship in order to transform it into an idolatrous cult.

What do you think is the most concerning or problematic part of the Amazon synod’s final document?

The strategy of the entire Amazon synod operation is deception, the preferred weapon of the of the devil:  telling half truths to achieve a perverse end.  A lack of priests:  they therefore say it is necessary to open up to married priests and to a women’s diaconate in order to destroy celibacy, first in the Amazon and then in the entire Church.  On what continent was the Catholic Church’s first evangelization ever carried out by married priests?  The missions in africa, Asia, and Latin America were carried out primarily by the Latin Church, and only to a very small extent by the Eastern Churches with married clergy.

The final document of this shamefully manipulated assembly, whose agenda and results have been planned for a long time, is a head-on strike against the divine edifice of the Church, attacking the sanctity of the Catholic priesthood, and pushing for the abolition of ecclesiastical celibacy and a female diaconate.

What did the pachamamma saga reveal?  And what ought to be done in response?

In Abu Dhabi, Pope Francis stated in writing that God “wills” all religions.  Despite the fraternal correction offered to him in person and in writing by Bishop Athanasius Schneider, Pope francis has ordered that his heretical declaration be taught in pontifical universities and that a special Commission be created to spread this grave doctrinal error.

Consistent with this aberrant doctrine, it’s not surprising that paganism and idolatry should also be included among the religions willed by God.  The Pope has shown us this and has implemented it personally, profaning the Vatican gardens and the Church of santa Maria in Transpontina, and desecrating St. Peter’s Basilica and the synod’s closing Mass by placing on the altar of the Confession that idolatrous “plant” that is closely associated with pachamama.

According to the tradition of the Church, the Church of santa Maria in Transponia and St. Peter’s Basilica must be re-consecrated in light of the appalling idolatrous profanations that have been committed in them.

The pachamama saga revealed a blatant and very serious violation of the First commandment, as well as the drivt towards idolatry in a “Church with an Amazonian face>”  That rite, which took place in the heart of Christianity, and which Bergoglio attended, assumes the value of an initiatory rite of the new religion.  Veneration of the pachamama is the poisonous fruit of “inculturation” at any price, and a fanatical expression of “Indian Theology” The Synod offered a launching pad for this new syncrestic, neo-pagan church, which is dedicated to the cult of Mother Earth, to the naturalist myth of the “good-savage,” and to the rejection of the Western model and lifestyle of advanced societies.

Idolatry seals apostasy.  It is the fruit of the denial of the true faith.  It is born of mistrust in God and degenerates into protest and rebellion.  Fr. Serafino Lanzetta recently said:

“To worship an idol is to worship oneself in place of God … it is to worship the anti-god who seduces and separates us from God, i.i. the devil, as can clearly be seen from the words of Jesus to the tempter in the desert (cf. Mt. 4:8-10.)  Man cannot but adore, but he must choose whom he will adore.  In tolerating the presence of idols – the pachamama in our present context – alongside faith, it is said that religion is basically what satisfies man’s desires.  Idols are always enticing because one adores what one wants and, above allone doesn’t have to endure many moral headaches.  On the contrary, idols for the most part are the sublimation of all human instincts.  The real headache, however, comes when moral corruption spreads and infests the Church.  An “abandonment of God” for impurity, to become prostitutes to other gods by exchanging God’s truth with lies, and by worshipping and serving creatures instead of the Creator (cf. Rom 1:24-25).  It seems that St. Paul is speaking to us today.  The root of this sad and tragic story is dogmatic and moral collapse.”

What has the Amazon Synod shown us about the nature of “synodality?”

The Church is not a democracy.  The Synod of Bishops, since Paul VI established it with Motu Proprio Apostolica Sollicitudo on September 15, 1965, has always dealt with problems concerning the universal Church, and has granted bishops representing all episcopal conferences worldwide the right to participate.  The Synod for the Amazon did not respect this criterion.

The Church in the Amazon certainly has major problems of its own, which therefore need to be addressed at the local level.  To resolve them it would have been sufficient for the Latin American bishops to have followed the recommendations that Pope Benedict XVI made to them on the occasion of his visit to Aparecida in 2007.  They did not do so.  Indeed, for decades, many of them have allowed if not encouraged adherents of liberation theology and ideologies of largely Germanic origin, with the Jesuits on the front line, to continue to refuse to proclaim Christ as the only savior.

“Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves.” (Mt 7:15).  The situation in part of the Church in the Amazon has been a failure, partly because of the apostolic nuncios in Brazil, such as the current Secretary-General of the Synod of Bishops, who proposed candidates for the episcopate such as those we saw aththe Amazon Synod.  By holding a Synod in Rome, instead of holding a local synod, and by inviting bishops selected from among the blindest ones to guide other blind men, was there an attempt to export and spread the disease to the universal Church?

Pope Francis uses “synodality” in a highly contradictory and minimally synodal way!  “Synodality” is one of the “mantras” of the current pontificate, the magical solution to all the problems affecting the life of the Church. The much acclaimed “synodal conversion” has supplanted conversion to Christ.  This is precisely why “synodality” is not the solution but the problem.

Moreover, Pope Francis seems to conceive of synodality as a one-way street:  the actors, content and results are planned and directed in a targeted and unambiguous way.  As a result the synodal institution is seriously de-legitimized, and the faithful’s adherence to it is undermined.

One also has the impression that synodality is being seized and used as an instrument to break free from Tradition and from what the Church has always taught.  How can true synodality exist where absolute fidelity to doctrine is absent?

Speaking at the Angelus about the recent concluded assembly, Francis said:  “We walked looking into each other’s eyes and listening to one another with sincerity, without hiding the difficulties.”  These words speak of a synodality exercised from below, not form Christ the Lord nor from listening to His eternal Truth.  They reflect a sociological and worldly synodality that serves a merely human ideological project.

Do you have any thoughts on how the Vatican media apparatus handled the synod?  Critics say it has lost all credibility.

During the Synod we witnessed a Soviet – style communication management, with the imposition of an “official version” that almost never coincided with reality.  When the evidence of lies or ambiguity was brought to  light by so many courageous journalists, they denied it or denounced conspiracy.

Garments were rent, to the point of filing an official complaint, over the goddess mothers pachamama being thrown into the miry Tiber.  Then there were the usual epithets:  conservative and fanatical Catholics, retrogrades who don’t believe in dialogue, people who ignore the history of the Church, according to an editorial published in Vatican News, complete with a quotation from St. John-Henry Cardinal Newman, and was favorable to the statues.  Yet the Newman quote, according to which the elements of pagan origin are sanctified by their adoption into the Church, not only testifies to the bad faith of the person who used it but also backfires against him.

The Newman quote in fact highlights the substantial difference between the wise practice of Christ’s Church and the methods of the modernist apostasy.  Indeed, the Roman Church, which destroyed the tyranny of demonic idols (think of the demolition of the temples of apollo by St. Benedict or the sacred oak by St. Boniface) and established the kingdom of Christ, adopts forms of ancient pagan religion and baptizes them.  The new modernists, on the other hand, who believe that God positively wills the diversity of religions, happily surrender themselves to syncretism and idolatry.

What specifically about the Church and her Faith has been put at risk or threatened by the Amazon Synod?

The Amazon synod is part of a process that aims at nothing less than changing the Church. The pontificate of Pope Francis is studded with sensational acts aimed at undermining doctrines, practices and structures that until now have been considered consubstantial with the Catholic Church.  He himself has defined this process as a “paradigm shitf”  ie:  a clear break with the Church that preceded him.

With the Amazonian Synod, the utopia of a new tribalist and ecologist church has emerged on the horizon. It is the old project of that Latin American progressivism that was already confronted by John Paul II and then-Cardinal Ratzinger but never really eradicated – and now it is being promoted by the top of the Catholic hierarchy.  The aim of this synod is to move towards the definitive consecration of liberation theology in its “green and tribal” version.

With this Synod, as on other occasions, the Catholic Church appears to be aligned with the strategies that dominate the global scene and are supported by powerful forces and finance.  These strategies are radically anti-human and intrinsically anti-christian.  The agenda even includes the promotion of abortion, gender ideology, and homosexualism and it dogmatizes the theory of anthropogenic global warming.

For all of us Catholics, the landscape in the Holy church is becoming darker by the day.  The ongoing progressive offensive portends a real revolution, not only in the way the Church is understood, but also in the apocalyptic images it gives to the whole world order.  With deep sadness, we see the present pontificate marked by unusual facts, disconcerting behavior and statements that contradict traditional doctrine, and which sow a general doubt in souls about what the Catholic Church is and what her true and immutable principles are.

It feels as though we are in the grip of a religious chaos of gigantic proportion.  If this satanic plan is successful, Catholics who adhere to it will in fact change religion, and the immense flock of Our Lord jesus Christ will be reduced to a minority.  This minority will likely have much to suffer.  but it will be sustained by Our Lord’s promise that the gates of hell will not prevail against the Church, and with Him it will conquer in the Triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary promised by Our Lady of Fatima.

What do you think synod organizers have accomplished from their point of view?  What advances have they made in their agenda?

The organizers and protagonists of the synod have certainly achieved one of their objectives:  to make the Church more Amazonian and the Amazon less Catholic.  The Amazonian paradigm, with its pantheistic veneration of Mother Earth and utopian interconnection between all the elements of nature, should enable (according to the theological speculations developed in the Germanic regions) the overcoming of the traditional Catholic religion through a Worldwide and Stateless Pantheon.  The recent Synod has been successful in the sense of creating an Amazonia Church constituted by a set of beliefs, worship, pagan-sacramental practices, liturgies that are inculturated in communion with Nature, and many married Indian clergy, with a view towards ordaining women.  It is an aberrant and truly significant step in the agenda of an “out-going Church” that is busy in the process of the Great Substitution of Catholicism with Another Relgion, that which glorifies Man in the place of God.

You are the former apostolic nuncio to the United States.  What would you think of the laity flooding the Vatican and apostolic Nunciatures with letters?

“The kingdom of heaven has suffered violence and men of violence take it by force”  (Mt. 11:12).  As Professor Robert De Mattei invites us:  “We must militarize our hearts and transform then into an Acies Ordinata.  The Church is not afraid of her enemies and always wins when Christians fight.  Our adversaries are united by their hatred of the good, we must unite in love for good and truth.  This is not an ordinary battle but a war!  It is urgent that the Catholic resistance be strongly united and visible in the face of the ongoing process of the Church’s self-demolition, also by overcoming “the many misunderstandings that often divide the field of the good and seek among these forces a unity of purpose and action, while maintaining their different legitimate identities”(De Mattei).

In the gravest of hours, the laity are certainly the spearhead of the resistance.  By their courage, they must appeal to us shepherds and encourage us to come forward with more courage and determination to defend the Bride of Christ.  The warning of Saint Catherine of Siena is addressed to us shepherds:  “Open your eyes and look at the perversity of death that has come into the world, and, especially into the Body of the Holy Church.  Alas, may your hearts and souls burst at seeing so many offenses against God!  Alas, enough silence!  Shout with a hundred thousand tongues.  I see that, through silence, the world is dead.  The Bride of Christ is pale.”

Is there anything you wish to add?

Let us give the last word to St. Bridget of Sweden, co-patroness of Europe:

The Father spoke, while the whole host of heaven was listening, and he said:

“Before you I state my complaint that I gave my daughter to a man who torments her terribly and binds her feet to a wooden stake so that the marrow has all gone out of her feet”

The Son answered him:  “Father, I have redeemed her with my blood and bethrothed her to myself, but now she has been seized by force.”

The Father exclaimed:  “My son, I share your lament, your word is mine, your works are mine.  You are in me and I in you.  May your will be done.”

Then the Mother spoke, saying:  “You are my God and my Lord.  My body bore the limbs of your blessed Son, who is your true Son and my true Son.  I refused Him nothing on earth.  For the sake of my prayers, have mercy on your daughter, the Church.”

The Father replied:  “Since you refused Me nothing on earth, I do not want to refuse you anything in heaven.  May your will be done.”

After this, the angels spoke, saying:  “You are our Lord, in you we possess every good thing, and we need nothing but you.  When you chose this Bride, we all rejoiced;  by now we have reason to be sad, because she has been given over into the hands of the worst of men who offends her with all kinds of insults and abuse.  So have mercy on her according to your great mercy, and there is no one to console and free her but you, Lord, God, Almighty.”

Then He said to the angels:  “You are my friends and the flame of your love burns in my heart.  I will have mercy on my daughter, my Church, for love of your prayers.”  (Revelations, Book 1, Chapter 24)

Again, let us allow St. Bridget to speak:

“Know that if any pope grants priest the permission to contract carnal marriage, he will be spiritually condemned by God …

God would completely deprive that same pope of spiritual vision and hearing as well as of spiritual words and deeds.

All his spiritual wisdom would become altogether frozen.

Then, after his death, his soul would be thrown into hell to be tormented forever, there to become the food of demons eternally and without end.

Yes, even if Pope St. Gregory himself had decreed this, he would never have obtained God’s pardon from that sentence, unless he had humbly revoked it before death.”  (Revelations, Book VII, 10)

Lord, have mercy on your Church, for love of our prayers and afflictions!
