Holy Week events at the Vatican 2018

 1. Plaster fell down near Michelangelo’s statue of the Pieta in the Vatican.

The Jersey Evening Post reported: Chunks of plaster fall from St Peter’s Basilica

World News | Published: Mar 29, 2018

“Falling plaster rained down near Michelangelo’s famed Pieta statue to the right of the main entrance. …Vatican spokesman Greg Burke said repairmen are working to secure the site and the basilica remained open.”

https://jerseyeveningpost.com/news/world-news/2018/03/29/chunks-of-plaster-fall-from-st-peters-basilica/  

This happened just hours after Pope Francis’ denial of hell (See article below)

Is this to bring to our attention Our Blessed Mother, holding the Body of her Son? (The Pieta, right near the falling chunks of plaster)

The Church is also the Mystical Body of Christ.

Is the ceiling plaster falling in chunks, a symbol of the structure of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church beginning to crumble? Maybe this is the sign.
After all, the Church will crumble as Bergoglio dismantles it and as he destroys its teachings and traditions – bit by bit. The ceiling plaster falling, is like the rumble before the schism. Not all is well in the Church!

2.“Pope Bergoglio Spouts the Annihilationist Heresy—Again

(This is the heresy that no-one goes to hell. Bergoglio was quoted as saying, once before, that the souls of the damned just ceased to exist. Read the article below by clicking on the link.)

DonnaLiane’s comment: (on the article above)

 “ Basically, the Vatican denies it but not really! Just denies that they were his exact words and denies it was an ‘interview’.

3. Pope Francis did not kiss Jesus’ feet, but his face.

“Just checked the 1962 missal, it says “… devoutly kiss the feet of the Crucified” (Tt Crusader)

“Reverence and humility is kissing His feet; like Mary Magdalene. It’s an inbuilt instinct.” (DonnaLiane)

See https://twitter.com/EdwardPentin/status/979843084895838209

Watch this video (above) closely (especially at the beginning) of Bergoglio kissing the Crucifix at the Good Friday ceremonies, 2018. (yesterday)

Jesus message on March 29, 2013,(just after Bergoglio was elected) Good Friday:

“My dearly beloved daughter when Judas Iscariot betrayed Me, he held My Head and kissed me on the cheek. When those who lead My Church say they love Me, and then betray Me, you will see, clearly, their kiss of betrayal.

Not at My Feet will they fall.  It will not be My Feet they kiss, but those of My servants, My followers, My sinners….” (see link to the complete message below)

  1. Pope Francis washed the feet of 12 prisoners

at the historic Regina Coeli prison in Rome this last Holy Thursday.

As we know, the washing of the feet is to remind us of the first Holy Thursday, where Jesus washed the feet of his 12 apostles – i.e. the first bishops of the Christ’s Church.

Why then, would Pope Francis include two Moslems and a Buddhist?

Is this a sign of the new One World Church to come? (That is, this new church, not of Jesus Christ, but represented by religious leaders of a variety of faiths: Buddhists, Moslems, Hindus, Catholics, other Christians, atheists…all will be welcome.) Just as Jesus washed the feet of his Apostles – bishops of His Church –    Bergoglio washes the feet of people representing all religions – the new One World Church.

The Missal instructs the priest to wash the foot and dry it with a cloth. Bergoglio not only washes the feet, but kisses them. (See the prophecy from the Book of Truth below)

Remember the very first “popevideo” of Pope Francis (entitled “The Pope Video – Inter-religious Dialogue – January 2016”) which shows  a Buddhist, a Jew, a Moslem and a Catholic priest?

On the first Holy Thursday in 2013, just after Bergoglio was elected, his first “washing of the feet”, Jesus’ message to us was:

Not at My Feet will they fall.  It will not be My Feet they kiss, but those of My servants, My followers, My sinners.    …

Humanism is not Christianity. To be Christian means surrendering all to Me, abandoning yourself in full humility at My Feet. It means allowing Me to guide you. It means obedience to My Laws and doing all that you can to show the example of My Love for you all. Today I was betrayed….”  (Book of Truth: March 29, 2013 @ 7:00pm; Message # 3 on Good Friday)

Fragmented and Fearful: Prophecy Fulfilled (Part 5)

AMDG

Extract of Prophecy from message 0955 In the Book of Truth (November 1, 2013 @ 11:17pm.)

“…Soon, all those who have led My Church in the past, all those who provide God’s children with the True Word of God, within My Church, and all those who will remain loyal to the Truth, will be shoved to one side

The Catholic Church will make a number of alarming statements, as to why it has to change and amend every part of its structure.

All these changes will come about quickly, in the future, and the spread of these things will astonish many. Amidst it all, there will be confusion, fear, sadness and great distress. 

My Church will become so fragmented that all trust within its walls will be broken. This will create a great fear and then, in a manner which will not seem clear at first, the Catholic Church will become a leading force in the new one world religion. This new abomination will declare a great love for the world’s poor and hungry. But it will not preach My Word, nor will it remain true to My Church. My Church, however, will continue to live.”

Part 5: Great Love for the world’s poor and hungry”

These use emotive terms and the words “Prayer intention” – but they are far from a prayer. It is much more like indoctrination to his viewpoint – bit by bit.

Some of the titles include:

  1. February 2017: Welcome the needy

For those who are weighed down, especially the poor, refugees and marginalized, that they might find welcome and support in our communities.

  1. January, 2017: Christians serving humanity

“For all who contribute through prayer and fraternal charity to restoring full ecclesial communion in service of the challenges facing humanity.

  1. September, 2016: For a more human society

That each may contribute to the common good and to the building of a society that places the human person at the center.  

  1. March 2016: For children and families in difficulty

“That families in need may receive the necessary support and that children may grow up in healthy and peaceful environments”.

  1. April 2016: Small farmers

“That small farmers may receive just compensation for their invaluable work.”

“…When you think about it, juicing up monthly prayer intentions with cleverly produced agitprop turns “intentions” into something other than subjects for prayer. Your emotions are deliberately manipulated to promote an ideological agenda. …

  • The focus of the Nativity Scene this last Christmas (Dec. 2017) was on a naked man. The theme was the Corporal Works of Mercy. There was a lot of symbolism in the broken building portraying the Vatican and in the characters themselves,The Christmas tree behind the scene had no Christian symbols, but it did have 2 pagan signs. In no way did his scene celebrate the joy and peace of Christmas.   See our article on this at:  https://remnantdisciples.wordpress.com/2017/12/17/the-nativity-sce…-the-anti-church/

 

 

 

 

Sounds like an admirable idea – but, as we have seen this last Christmas -at the expense of Jesus being blotted out. It will change what it means to be Catholic. We will be putting the human and secular at the heart of our Faith, instead of God.

Part 4: Fragmented

  • Destruction of the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate

This was a thriving traditional order to which Pope Francis appointed a commissioner in 2013 and the seminary was closed.

“…Announcing Volpi’s appointment in July 2013, the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life also issued a decree saying Pope Francis required all the friars “to celebrate the liturgy according to the ordinary rite,” the post-Vatican II Mass, and that use of the extraordinary form, the pre-Vatican II Latin Mass, “must be explicitly authorized by the competent authorities for every religious or community that makes a request.”

https://www.ncronline.org/news/vatican/pope-met-franciscan-seminarians-after-orders-seminary-closed

In Dec. 2017 Rorate Caeli reported that the destruction of the Friars and the sisters was almost complete.

  • It will not preach My Word, nor will it remain true to My Church

(Amoris Laetitiae is elevated to the magisterium through the back door.)

  • Here’s how Pope Francis elevated communion for adulterers to ‘authentic magisterium’ Mon Dec 4, 2017 – 11:00 am EST

December 4, 2017 (Rorate Caeli) — This week, the Vatican’s organ for promulgating the Official Acts of the Apostolic See, Acta Apostolicae Sedis (AAS), has published its October 2016 issue, containing Pope Francis’ infamous Letter to the Buenos Aires Bishops. AAS not only published this letter, declaring that there are “no other interpretations” (“No hay otras interpretaciones”) of Amoris Laetitia other than those of the Buenos Aires bishops, but it also published the full Buenos Aires guidelines themselves, which permit Holy Communion in some cases for couples in a state of permanent and public adultery who are not committed to living in complete continence.

Most significantly, AAS upgrades Pope Francis’ private letter to the Buenos Aires bishops to the official magisterial status of an “Apostolic Letter” (“Epistola Apostolica”) – AND it includes a special rescript as an addendum by Cardinal Pietro Parolin, Secretary of State. This rescript declares that Pope Francis expressly intends that BOTH documents – the pope’s letter and the Buenos Aires guidelines themselves- bear the character of his “authentic Magisterium”, and that the pope personally ordered their publication in AAS and on the Vatican website….”

  • Excerpts from The A – Z list of concerns with Pope Francis By John Henry Westen

Scalfari interviews: ‘Annihilation’ rather than hell?

In March 2015 in an interview with La Repubblica founder Eugenio Scalfari, the Pope suggested no person could go to hell, and proposed annihilation for those who fully reject God. …

… statement from the Pope’s latest exhortation Amoris Laetitia, in which he said, “No one can be condemned for ever, because that is not the logic of the Gospel!”

  • Luther, serious sin to convert

The Pope spoke to an audience before a statue of Luther in the Vatican just prior to his going to Sweden to help launch the 500th anniversary of Lutheranism. The Vatican issued a stamp featuring Luther and put out a document saying Catholics now recognize Martin Luther as a ‘witness to the gospel’

 

  • Proselytism is a grave sin

On another occassion he said it is a “very grave sin” to try to convert Orthodox to Catholicism: “There is a very grave sin against ecumenism: proselytism.”

 

  • Multiplication of loaves

During the Angelus of June 2, 2013, he spoke about Christ’s miracle of the multiplication of the loaves and fishes as taking place by “sharing.” “This is the miracle: rather than a multiplication it is a sharing, inspired 2017. Pope Francis said, “This is how the miracle takes place. It is not magic or sorcery. … Jesus managed to generate a current among his followers: they all went on sharing what was their own, turning it into a gift for the others; and that is how they all got to eat their fill. Incredibly, food was left over: they collected it in seven baskets.”

Catholic philosopher who questioned Pope sues archdiocese for firing him

  • By Pete Baklinski Wed Sep 27, 2017 – 2:41 pm EST

“GRANADA, Spain, September 27, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — A leading Catholic philosopher is suing an archdiocese after the local archbishop fired him from a Catholic university for publishing a critique of Pope Francis’ teaching on marriage and family. 

Dr. Josef Seifert filed a civil lawsuit last week against the Archdiocese of Granada saying that his removal from the university was unjustified and a violation of two of his fundamental human and constitutional rights.

Seifert, an intimate friend of the late Pope St. John Paul II, was removed in August from his post at the International Academy of Philosophy in Granada by Archbishop Javier Martínez Fernández. 

In an article published online last month, Seifert called the Pope’s 2016 Exhortation Amoris Laetitia (AL) a ticking “theological atomic bomb” that has the capacity to destroy all Catholic moral teaching. 

Patristics scholar Professor Claudio Pierantoni wrote in an article earlier this month that the archbishop’s removal of Seifert signifies that an “official persecution” of faithful Catholics has now begun under the Francis pontificate….”

  • Former Vatican doctrine chief: ‘People working in the Curia are living in great fear’       

    By Claire Chretien                    Fri Sep 29, 2017 – 12:53 pm EST

September 29, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – The former head of the Vatican’s doctrine office is warning in a lengthy new interview that under Pope Francis fear now permeates the Church’s administrative body, the Roman Curia.

“I heard it from some houses here, that people working in the Curia are living in great fear: If they say one small or harmless critical word, some spies will pass the comments directly to the Holy Father, and the falsely accused people don’t have any chance to defend themselves,” Cardinal Gerhard Müller told the National Catholic Register’s Ed Pentin in a wide-ranging interview.

The Pope removed Müller, without explanation, when the Cardinal’s term ended in July.

… Müller’s account is consistent with what high-level Rome sources have told LifeSiteNews – that the “fear” throughout the Vatican is “tangible.”  

Bishop Athanasius Schneider has compared the treatment of the four cardinals who sent the dubia to Pope Francis to life under the Soviet Union.

“We live in a climate of threats and of denial of dialogue towards a specific group,” Schneider said in December 2016.

In an exclusive interview with LifeSiteNews published todayProfessor Claudio Pierantoni, one of the lay scholars behind the recent “filial correction” of Pope Francis, confirmed the uneasiness and fear in which many orthodox theologians live. …”

  • Thomas G. Weinandy explains his critical letter to Pope Francis

“First,” says the noted Capuchin priest and theologian, “I decided to write Pope Francis a letter, which I intended then to publish unless he adequately addressed the issues I raised.”

November 1, 2017 Carl E. Olson

Editor’s note: Fr. Thomas G. Weinandy, O.F.M., Cap., is a highly regarded and accomplished American theologian who is former chief of staff for the U.S. Bishops’ Committee on Doctrine and a current member of the Vatican’s International Theological Commission.

Fr. Weinandy recently made public a three-page letter he had sent to Pope Francis on July 31, 2017. The letter… expresses Fr. Weinandy’s concerns about several aspects of the current pontificate, including the much-debated Chapter 8 of Amoris Laetitia, the Holy Father’s apparent low regard for Church doctrine, and the clear sense that many bishops “fear that if they speak their mind” about their concerns, “they will be marginalized or worse.”

I spoke for a few minutes this morning with Fr. Weinandy, and he told me that since the letter’s publication, he has received many positive and encouraging notes from theologians, priests, and lay people. However, the USCCB asked him to resign from his current position as consultant to the bishops, and he has submitted his resignation. In making such a request, the USCCB, it would appear, reinforces Fr. Weinandy’s very point about fearfulness and lack of transparency.  …”

  • C9 Cardinals

On 13th Sept. 2015, the C9 Council of Cardinals met to reflect on the ongoing reforms of the Curia.

“… A main focus for discussion at this encounter was how the Curia can be an instrument of evangelization at the service of the pope and the local Churches. In particular the cardinals talked about the need for decentralization, the role of the nunciatures, the selection of personnel, especially the need for a less clerical and more international staff, with an increase in the number of women and young people…”

  • German Bishops’ website praises Pope Francis for abolishing ‘conservative’ JPII Institute

    Fri Sep 22, 2017 – 12:13 pm EST

September 22, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) – The official website of Germany’s Catholic bishops celebrated the Pope’s dissolution of the John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and the Family, “a stronghold of resistance against Francis’ agenda of mercy,” and its replacement with a new “think tank for Amoris Laetitia.

  • Local Conference of bishops – Missal translations – ‘Magnum Principium’

Magnum Principium: “… new “Apostolic Letter” motu proprio, entitled Magnum Principium, in which the “Pope” makes a change to Canon 838 of Novus Ordo Canon Law, which pertains to the translation of liturgical texts. The modification has been decreed to take effect on Oct. 1, 2017.”

… Whereas formerly approval by the “Holy See” was needed for liturgical translations, now the Vatican needs to merely “recognize” and “confirm” the translations made and approved by the local bishops’ conferences themselves.

… It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to predict that what will happen in actual practice is that we will see a virtual Babel of local and regional translations proposed by the Novus Ordo bishops, and the Vatican will just give the nod of approval more or less automatically to virtually all of them. We will probably also see “priests” and “bishops” using their own words for all sorts of liturgical things and daring the Vatican to intervene, which will happen only after a long time and only in the rarest of cases.

Bishops removed

  • VATICAN CITY, September 17, 2014 –“…In his first months as bishop of Rome, pope Bergoglio immediately provided for the transfer to lower-ranking positions of three prominent curial figures: Cardinal Mauro Piacenza, Archbishop Guido Pozzo, and Bishop Giuseppe Sciacca, considered for their theological and liturgical sensibilities among the most “Ratzingerian” of the Roman curia….”    http://biblefalseprophet.com/2014/09/17/faithful-prelate-purge-exile-to-malta-for-cardinal-burke/

 

Cardinal Raymond Burke – a series of demotions

  • VATICAN CITY (Reuters) – Pope Francis on Saturday demoted an outspoken conservative American cardinal who has been highly critical of the pontiff’s reformist leadership of the Roman Catholic Church.

Cardinal Raymond Burke, 66, was removed as head of the Vatican’s highest court and appointed to the ceremonial post of chaplain of the charity group Knights of Malta.

The move, which the Vatican announced on Saturday without comment, had been expected. Burke said last month he had been told he would move to a new job but did not know when.

Burke, who until Saturday was the highest-ranking American in the Vatican, gave a series of recent interviews criticizing the pope and had emerged as the face of conservative opposition to Francis’ reform agenda.   https://www.reuters.com/article/us-pope-demotion-burke/pope-demotes-outspoken-american-conservative-cardinal-idUSKBN0IS0GJ20141108

  • “ Cardinal Burke, patron of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta and one of the world’s foremost authority on Roman Catholic Canon law, has been an outspoken champion of the Church’s pro-life and pro-family teachings.

  … In 2013, the Cardinal was removed by Pope Francis from the Congregation for Bishops, the influential department that oversees the selection of new bishops, while liberal-minded prelates, such as Washington’s Cardinal Donald Wuerl and Westminster Archbishop Vincent Nichols, were added to replace him. Under Pope Benedict, Burke is said to have played a major role in the appointments of some of the currently most orthodox bishops in the United States and other nations.

Burke was also demoted by Pope Francis in 2014 from being the Prefect of the Apostolic Signatura due to what critics said was his uncompromising defense of Church’s teaching on life and family issues. He was removed from the Congregation for Divine Worship in November, after submitting the “dubia” to the Pope.  …”

  • From an article on 30 Nov. 2017 –

“… Cardinal Burke has been long known for his defense of Church orthodoxy, and many regard his resoluteness to that end in the face of seemingly political demotions and derision as an example of courage and fidelity to the faith.

…Burke further confirmed in the Catholic Herald interview that although he remains cardinal patron for the Order of Malta, he currently has no function within the Order and thus receives no communication from either the organization itself or from Pope Francis. …”

Cardinal Müller has been dismissed by Pope Francis. He was Prefect of the Congregation for the Faith since July 2, 2012, has been dismissed by Pope Francis on the exact expiry date of his five-year mandate.

Cardinal Müller is one of the cardinals who sought to interpret Amoris Laetitia along the lines of a hermeneutic of continuity with Church Tradition. This was enough to put him among the critics of the new course imposed by Pope Bergoglio.

In response to this, Vatican spokesman,  Father Federico Lombardi, issued a statement on July 11 indicating that Pope Francis met with Cardinal Sarah on July 9 to indicate no liturgical directives will begin in Advent (as suggested by Cardinal Sarah). http://www.catholicherald.co.uk/news/2016/07/12/vatican-rejects-cardinal-sarahs-ad-orientem-appeal/

  • In an article on 23rd 2017, Marco Tosatti in “The War against Cardinal Sarah” explained that after Cardinal  Müller was removed, The Pope’s main target was Cardinal Sarah. He states: ” Their latest coup is the release of a letter of “correction” aimed at Cardinal Sarah and signed by Francis. Published on Sunday, the letter was celebrated as a just humiliation of the cardinal and accompanied by calls for his resignation.

 

  • After Magnum Principium”, a document granting bishops’ conferences greater latitude to make their own translations of sacred texts and liturgy, was issued, Cardinal Sarah replied in a letter trying to protect against the error that this document could produce, Pope Francis publicly declared that Sarah was wrong – another humiliation.

 

  • Another humiliation occurred when the pope eliminated most of the existing members from the Congregation for Divine Worship and replaced them with people who are more hostile to Sarah and his liturgical views.

 

  • “ …And there is the matter of the “Ecumenical Mass,” a liturgy designed to unite Catholics and Protestants around the Holy Table. Though never officially announced, a committee reporting directly to Pope Francis has been working on this liturgy for some time. Certainly this topic is within the jurisdiction of the Congregation for Divine Worship, but Cardinal Sarah has not officially been informed of the committee’s existence….”

Fragmented and Fearful: Prophecy Fulfilled

AMDG

Extract of Prophecy from the Book of Truth

 (Message 0955: November 1, 2013 @ 11:17pm.)

“…Soon, all those who have led My Church in the past, all those who provide God’s children with the True Word of God, within My Church, and all those who will remain loyal to the Truth, will be shoved to one side.

The Catholic Church will make a number of alarming statements, as to why it has to change and amend every part of its structure.

…All these changes will come about quickly, in the future, and the spread of these things will astonish many. Amidst it all, there will be confusion, fear, sadness and great distress.

My Church will become so fragmented that all trust within its walls will be broken. This will create a great fear and then, in a manner which will not seem clear at first, the Catholic Church will become a leading force in the new one world religion. This new abomination will declare a great love for the world’s poor and hungry. But it will not preach My Word, nor will it remain true to My Church. My Church, however, will continue to live.”

What struck me when I re-read this prophecy recently, is again how many prophetic details have been fulfilled already, since Nov 2013, given within these 10 lines. And this is only just one of many prophecies fulfilled in exact detail, found within the Book of Truth.

Firstly, not long after Jorge Bergoglio took over the chair of Peter, he began to make it clear that he was making changes whether people liked it or not, and whether consultations went ‘his way’ or not. This has included to structures which hitherto had helped the Church to remain “One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic” and a sign of unity to the world. Catholics around the world have been dismayed at the lack of clarity and Truth from a man who claims to be ‘pope’. How can a pope teach heresy? Refuse to uphold Truth? Attack all that is dear within the Church? And cast aside her primary mission; to save souls?!

Among faithful Catholics there has undoubtedly been a great, great deal of confusion, deep cutting sadness and heartbreaking distress as popular petitions, Catholic news headlines, and news commentaries, from many groups of the Faithful, attest to.

At churches too, there is a division, depending on people’s understanding, over where PF is leading the Church. So much so that Catholics in Novus Ordo churches often do not discuss the current pontificate, or instead discuss the unfolding of events in secretive, little huddles outside Mass, or via blind cc emails.

Most priests avoid anything contentious in their homilies and let “The Catholic Outlook” do the talking on ‘official opinion’. Even our bishops and cardinals do not agree. There is definite fragmentation, although we are praying to avoid and mitigate the effects that a full-fledged schism would have.

Lastly what came out recently was the atmosphere of fear. Those in Rome report that every single priest and prelate in the Vatican is too scared to utter a single word which may be taken as a criticism against Francis because he runs a ruthless dictatorship. Priest and Cardinals are being spied on and ‘reported to’ Francis. They are terrified of him. He is not the benevolent father he makes out to be; clear in his many public, deriding sermons to clergy. All the traditional or conservative bishops and Cardinals either ‘shut up’ or are ‘shipped off’. Many lose their positions of leadership within the Church structure and are replaced by the most outrageous liberals, including heretics! The fullest summary of these observations of the “Climate of Fear’ in the Vatican are gathered together from various sources in the recently released book, “The Dictator Pope”, which itself had to be published under a pseudonym!

In case you haven’t been following the unfolding of events, we provide a quick catch up of some of the things which come to mind when reading the details of the above prophecy for you to think about. These will be provided, with links to examples and relevant articles, in the next few instalments of “Fearful and Fragmented: Prophecies Fulfilled.”
