Hurray for Francis!

By Patricius Anthony

While there has been considerable handwringing and criticism within the neoconservative and semi-traditional Catholic circles over the bizarre and unCatholic actions of the Conciliar pope, Francis I, traditional Catholics should be rejoicing at the Novus Ordo's selection of this buffoon to head its collapsing Church. For unlike Benedict-Ratzinger, Bergoglio is an unabashed heretic/Modernist and is openly hostile to anything that smacks of traditional or, for that matter, even conservative Catholicism.

Not only do his scandalous words and actions demonstrate that he is not a Catholic, but Jorge Bergoglio is not even a priest, but a presbyter/layman, since he was not ordained under the valid, traditional Sacrament of Holy Orders, but merely "installed" under the invalid, Protestantized Novus Ordo Ordinal of 1968. Nor is he a true bishop, since he was not consecrated under the valid, traditional Sacrament of Holy Orders, but merely "installed," like Benedict-Ratzinger, under the invalid, Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968. Since neither Bergoglio nor Ratzinger were consecrated as bishops in the valid, traditional Sacrament of Holy Orders, consecrated as bishops, it follows that they cannot be Bishops of Rome.

The amusing part of Francis I's abominable Newpapal reign has been the attempts by conservative and semi-traditional commentators to defend this cretin as a "Catholic" pope. The contortions of logic which have been used to mitigate the steady stream of blasphemies, scandals, and boorish behavior of Bergoglio have gone beyond the ridiculous.

Far worse, however, for neoconservative Catholics is that defending an outright enemy of the True Faith, as Francis-Bergoglio certainly is, makes one an accomplice to the perpetrator's crimes. And, the sins of apostasy and heresy are far more severe than any human offenses one may commit.

While no one can possibly know the ways of Providence, what is certain is that all human action, no matter how brilliant, reprehensible, or puzzling, is eventually destined for the glory of Almighty God, as St. Paul states in his sublime Epistle to the Romans: "For of him, and by him, and in him, are all things; to him be glory forever. Amen" (11:36/DRV).

A possible explanation of why Almighty God would permit the likes of Francis-Bergoglio to become head of what most erroneously believe is the "Catholic" Church is one of grace. The scandalous and blasphemous actions and words of Bergoglio can leave no doubt that the Newchurch of the New Order is not, nor has ever been the institution "full of grace" founded by the Divine Savior for the salvation of souls. Instead, it is an imposter Church created under the inspiration of the diabolical for the eternal ruination of many.

While Francis I's predecessor, Benedict-Ratzinger, made an occasional traditional gesture or statement, there is no such pretention with Bergolio. In this respect, Francis is far less dangerous than his predecessor, who was just as liberal and a Modernist, but less flashy than his Argentine successor.

Because of their spiritual blindness (due to papolatry), semi-traditional Catholics and their fellow travelers have missed the "bigger picture." Francis I's "reign" is a sign (possibly the last) for the still Unconvinced to get out of the Newchurch of the New Order at all costs. It can also be interpreted as heavenly retribution for all the pusillanimous Catholics who have allowed Bergoglio, his Conciliar predecessors, and the Novus Ordo hierarchy to hijack and transform Christ's Church into its present deplorable condition. If Catholics at the time of the Second Vatican Council had fought against the changes and refused to attend the New Mass, there would be no Francis I or any of the Newpopes, who have desecrated the Chair of St. Peter.

There is, thus, no excuse for anyone with the least bit of sensus Catholici fidei to continue to recognize, support, or, God forbid, defend Francis or remain in the fraudulent organization that he heads. The pathway marked by Providence has now been made for those who want to see. Jorge Bergoglio is a spiteful, neo-Marxist apostate who is vehemently hostile to the little that is left of Tradition in the Novus Ordo sect and is hell bent on carrying the Conciliar Revolution to its full fruition.

For those who continue to associate and or recognize this evil figure, including the Neo-SSPX, should heed the words of the Divine Savior, or they may well end up with Jorge Bergoglio in the Eternal Pit: "Let them alone: they are blind, and leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both fall into the pit" (Matthew 15:14/DRV].
