Bishop Schneider Does Not Exclude Existence of Plot To Destroy Notre Dame

The fire destroying Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris erupted after hundreds of attacks against Catholic churches and objects in France during last year, Kazakhstan Bishop Athanasius Schneider wrote on LifeSiteNews.com (April 17).

Therefore he doesn't exclude the existence of “a plot to destroy the cathedral.” Admitting that there is so far no evidence for this he adds, “Yet one is left with a queasy feeling inside.”

Schneider remarks that French politics and media are both tightly controlled by “anti-Christian" and "Free Masonic" powers.

The fire is for Schneider a divine warning for the bishops and a symbol of what happened in the life of the Church over the last 50 years, namely a "conflagration" of Catholic faith, liturgy and morals.

Due to these betrayals, the Catholic hierarchy has to “repent or will perish” (Lk 13), Schneider adds.

Schneider lists among the betrayals the betrayal of Christ’s explicit command to evangelize all nations without exception, "first among them the Jewish people.”

Some considerations on the conflagration of the Cathedral Notre Dame in Paris. By Athanasius Schneider.

The lightning vehemence with which fire engulfed the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris left one with the impression that an unexpected event had come like a bolt from out of the blue. And yet, viewed as a phenomenon, this tragedy came after a series of hundreds of systematic arson attacks on various sacred objects belonging to the Catholic Church in France over the last year.

It is also significant that the fire in Notre Dame occurred at the beginning of Holy Week, which is the heart of the liturgical year for all Catholics. As the facts in the case are still unknown, we have no evidence on which to base allegations of a plot to destroy the cathedral. Yet one is left with a queasy feeling inside, especially as one considers the chain of systematic anti-Catholic events, marginalization, discrimination and ridicule which the Catholic Faith has undergone at the hands of the French political establishment and French media landscape, both of which are firmly in the hands of the current anti-Christian and Free Masonic powers in France.

Notre Dame is not only the most symbolic cultural and religious sign for the Catholic Church in France. Given that France bears the title “eldest daughter of the Church,” her main cathedral also has deep cultural and religious significance for the entire Catholic world.

The destruction of a visible sign of such vast proportion as the Cathedral Notre Dame in Paris also contains an unmistakable spiritual message. The fire of Notre Dame is without doubt a powerful and stirring sign which God is giving to His Church in our day. It is a cri de coeurfor authentic conversion, first and foremost among the Shepherds of the Church. The fire has largely destroyed Notre Dame, a centuries-old masterpiece of the Catholic Faith. This is a symbolic and highly evocative representation of what has happened in the life of the Church over the last fifty years, as people have witnessed a conflagration of the Church’s most precious spiritual masterpieces, i.e., the integrity and beauty of the Catholic Faith, the Catholic liturgy and Catholic moral life, especially among priests.

The climax of this decades-long spiritual conflagration has manifested itself in the clerical sexual abuse scandals which have profoundly shaken the entire Church. Sadly, we must say that the handling of the clerical sexual abuse scandal has remained more or less on the level of emotional dismay. The true roots of this crisis have not been transparently disclosed, nor, consequently, have effective spiritual medicine and peremptory canonical norms been applied. In a recent and detailed essay, the former Pope Benedict XVI identified one of the most important roots of the abuse crisis, i.e. the loss of the true Faith, the prevalence of moral relativism, and the heterodox and unspiritual formation of seminarians. In reactions to the statement of the former Pope Benedict XVI one could observe an embarrassed silence — and even some indignant outcries — rumbling throughout the ranks of the establishment of liberal theologians and liberal clergy, who are the true spiritual arsonistsin the Church today. They now consider the former Pope Benedict XVI to be a troublemaker whose blunt observations obstruct their incendiary work.

If the Shepherds of the Church will not recognize in the Notre Dame conflagration a Divine warning, they will be behaving like the people in Salvation History who did not recognize the warnings that God often gave them through the uncomfortable and unabashed words of the prophets, through natural catastrophes and various events. The tragedy of Notre Dame spontaneously brought to my mind the following words of Our Lord: “Or those eighteen upon whom the tower in Siloam fell and killed them, do you think that they were worse offenders than all the others who dwelt in Jerusalem? I tell you, No; but unless you repent you will all likewise perish.” (Lk 13: 4-5)

The tragic conflagration of the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris is also a propitious occasion for all members of the Church to do penance for the acts of betrayal that have been committed against Christ and His Divine teachings in the life of the Church over the past fifty years. Penance and reparation must be made, especially for the betrayal of the command of God the Father that all mankind should believe in His Divine Son, the only Savior of mankind. For God wills positively only the one and unique religion which believes that His Incarnated Son is God and the only Savior of mankind. Penance and reparation must also be made for the betrayal of Christ’s explicit command to evangelize all nations without exception, first among them the Jewish people. For it was to them that Christ first sent His Apostles, to bring them to faith in Him and to the New and Everlasting Covenant for which the Old and temporary Covenant was established.

If the Shepherds of the Church refuse to do penance for the spiritual conflagration of the past fifty years, and for the betrayal of Christ’s universal command to evangelize, should we then not fear that God might send another and more shocking sign, like a devastating conflagration or earthquake that would destroy St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome? God will not indefinitely and shamelessly be mocked by so many Shepherds of the Church of our own day, through their betrayal of the Faith, their sycophantic serving of the world and their neo-pagan worship of temporal and earthly realities. To them as well are addressed these words of Christ, “I tell you, unless you repent you will all likewise perish.” (Lk 13: 5)

May the fire at the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris, however sad and deplorable it is, rekindle — especially in the Shepherds of the Church — a love and zeal for the true Catholic Faith and for the ardent evangelization of all those who do not yet believe in Christ. And may they be mindful not to marginalize and cowardly exclude the Jewish and Muslim people from this outstanding form of charity. May the fire at Notre Dame also serve as a means to inflame in the Shepherds of the Church a spirit of true repentance, so that God might grant to all the grace of a renewal in the true Faith and in true love for Christ, Our Lord, Our God and Our Savior.

When the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris began to burn, there was a group of faithful, with children and young people among them, who knelt on the ground and sang the Hail Mary. This was one of the most touching and spiritually powerful signs in the midst of a great tragedy. May Our Lady, Help of Christians, intercede for us, that the Shepherds of the Church might begin, with the help of the lay faithful, to rebuild the spiritual ruins in the life of the Church in our day. In the Church, as in Paris, a process of repairing and rebuilding is a sign of hope.

If evidence of arson was discovered, would the French authorities make it public?

The burning of cathedral, and in my opinion, is a sign, that Jesus and Mary are upset with France basically turning its back on God.

An atheist will blapheme against Christ, and mock our Holy Mother Church over the ongoing abuse crisis. Then in the next breath, he'll gleefully attack Israel for defending itself against constant Muslim terrorism and then wring his hands in outrage at Muslim misogyny.

Nothing irritates an atheist more than faith, because it is outside his control. If Jews and Muslims refuse to eat pork and we Catholics refuse to eat any flesh on Fridays, he can't argue against it. We do so because we believe.

By contrast, the atheist prefers what he likes to call "reason" because he, in his monstrous Satanically-inspired pride, knows he can always twist that his own malign advantage, either through manufactured "facts" or through convoluted forms of formal argument.

Bishop Schneider sees the issue, rightly I believe, in much broader terms.He's not looking at a single species of anti-Christian animal. He's looking at the whole rotten menagerie of them.

1 Thessalonians 2:14-16: “The Jews, who both killed the Lord Jesus, and the prophets, and have persecuted us, and please not God, and are adversaries to all men; prohibiting us to speak to the nations, that they may be saved, to fill up their sins always: for the wrath of God has come upon them to the end.”

Apocalypse 2:9: “I know thy tribulation and thy poverty, but thou art rich: and thou art blasphemed by them that say they are Judaites and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.”

God Hates the Jews, and on Judgment Day He will say to those who sympathize with them: “Depart from Me, for you have had intercourse with My murderers!” Flee, then, from their assemblies, fly from their houses, and, far from venerating the synagogue, hold it in hatred and aversion.’ ~ St. John Chrysostom

Yes, it's your own personal anti-Semitism because it is not a part of the official teachings of The Church. Is not. Full stop. Let us review the Catechism of the Catholic Church Section 839-840, quoted here verbatim:

The relationship of the Church with the Jewish People.
When she delves into her own mystery, the Church, the People of God in the New Covenant, discovers her link with the Jewish People,326 "the first to hear the Word of God."327 The Jewish faith, unlike other non-Christian religions, is already a response to God's revelation in the Old Covenant. To the Jews "belong the sonship, the glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the worship, and the promises; to them belong the patriarchs, and of their race, according to the flesh, is the Christ",328 "for the gifts and the call of God are irrevocable."329

And when one considers the future, God's People of the Old Covenant and the new People of God tend towards similar goals: expectation of the coming (or the return) of the Messiah. But one awaits the return of the Messiah who died and rose from the dead and is recognized as Lord and Son of God; the other awaits the coming of a Messiah, whose features remain hidden till the end of time; and the latter waiting is accompanied by the drama of not knowing or of misunderstanding Christ Jesus.


That is the official Church teaching on the Jews.

As for your interpretation of what God Himself says, that's best summed up by the slogan on a cheaply stamped metal belt buckle, a relic of failed government, a failed ideology: GOTT MIT UNS. I'm certain you know the one and it wouldn't surprise me if you paid a bundle for a battered, badly corroded original.

"Everyone knows that jews run the media/press and banks you filthy liar."

I defy you to quote ONE untruth in the post you're referencing. My post is right there. You called me a liar, a filthy liar no less. Now let's see you back it up. To use a very old phrase, you've given the lie, now let's see you show it.

The Church's teachings are quite clear, whether you personally agree with them or not. What "jews" do or do not run today is irrelevant. It's interesting how you're so quick to quote Scripture while scrupulously and very deliberately ignoring Christ's repeated teachings on forgiving our enemies.

Funny thing about that.

You've got the lesser-known writings of St. John of Chrysostom right at your fingertips but you somehow fail to quote the many repeated exhortations by our Lord Jesus to forgive one's enemies and wrong-doers.

"God Hates the Jews"
...which explains, no doubt, why He chose to send His Son to mankind as a Jew. Because He hates them. Sloppy sloppy reasoning and common among your type.

Well, to your credit, at least you didn't prevaricate your bigotry the way I was expecting. At least you're honest about it, I'll grant you that much.

Thank you for doing what I tried to do but failed. I tire of those 'Christians' who are so un-Christian in attitude. Yes, we can all get angry and disagree, but to sink to this level on a Catholic website - I sometimes think I would be better off avoiding these sites altogether. 'Chapeau' to you, Ultraviolet!

@pmfji You both are very ignorant of the jews and their evil. You probably think they are a race and that they practice the same religion of Mary and Joseph. The very fact that you defend an Antichrist religion shows how much power and influence they have over you.

I state the truth and you accuse me of hate.

Ultraviolet is a liar but is also filthy due to his other comment on another post.

God said to love the sinner, not the sin.

mattsixteen24 Like most bigots, you make a virtue out of the very sort of ignorance and deceit you so loudly condemn in others.

What you claim the Catechism says about Muslims is very different from what it actually does say. The Church, in following Christ's message of sharing The Good News, extends the hand of friendship even to the blaspheming Muslims. However, the scholars of the Church are not as dim-witted as yourself. A close examination of the actual text in the Catechism reveals this.

841 The Church's relationship with the Muslims.
"The plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator, in the first place amongst whom are the Muslims; these profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together with us they adore the one, merciful God, mankind's judge on the last day."330


In a sincere hope of reforming your open and manifest heresy, since that is what denying the truth of the Church teachings ultimately is, I'm going to try to clarify the section.

"The plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator,

The plan of salvation also includes all humanity. That is God's plan. God, however, has allowed humanity to choose its own course and we are free to accept and reject God's plan. Denying the divinity of His son is not part of the plan and Jesus Himself said so clearly. John 14:6 "I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me."

So for Muslims to be included in God's plan, they must acknowledge the divinity of His Son.

" in the first place amongst whom are the Muslims..."

The Church shows optimistism here. They are, among non-Christians, perhaps the closest to finally accepting the Truth, which is what this passage acknowledges. Some Muslims do eventually see the error of their ways just as some heretics, schismatics, and even pagans often do.

"these profess to hold the faith of Abraham"

The Church continues to wave an olive-branch here and, tacitly, encourages hate-filled bigots like yourself to do the same. But the Catechims presupposes a basic familiarity with the Gospels. As our Lord said in Matthew 7:16 "You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles?" Muslims can profess whatever they please, their actions define them.

"and together with us they adore the one, merciful God, mankind's judge on the last day."

Christianity and Islam both adore "one, merciful God" and there is no question God shall be "mankind's judge on the last day" That's where the problems start for Islam and all who follow it. If nothing else, they deny the divine nature of Jesus and He was quite explicit on that point.

You're also ignoring, perhaps out of your increasingly obvious ignorance, an equally important teaching in the Catechism:

846 "Outside the Church there is no salvation"

Muslims are, by definition, outside the Holy Mother Church.

The Church clarifies this point in the next section:

847 This affirmation is not aimed at those who, through no fault of their own, do not know Christ and his Church

...meaning there -may- be some hope of salvation for, say, some savage living in the Amazon jungle who may have never seen anyone outside his fellow pagan tribesmen.

This does not apply to Muslims. They indisputably DO know Christ and they despise Him. They know his Church and seek to destroy it. All of which means the previous Section 846 applies fully to them and on The Last Day, they are well and truly up the creek without a paddle.

Sadly, barring a last-minute sincere change of heart, so are you. You've damned yourself with your hatred of the very sort of wrong-doers Christ repeatedly insisted we should forgive. When the godless pagan Romans were torturing Him and mocking Him in His agony, what did our Lord Jesus do? Luke 23:24 records this... he begged, "Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they do."

You've damned yourself through a kind of "caffeteria Catholicism". The Catechism is not a buffet table, Matt. You can't pick the parts you like and then skip the ones you don't.

Now then, with your free Sunday School lesson completed, let's get back to your big dumb mouth and the noise that comes out of it. You called me a filthy liar twice now.

I challenged you to quote one such lie in the original post and prove its falsehood. You haven't. Why not, Matt? You repeat the claim but you can't back it up, even when directly challenged to prove it.

That kind of behavior has nothing to do with your bigotry or your heresy. That's who you are as a man. A man stands by what he says, regardless of his faith. A man backs up what he says with facts. You can't. You're just noise.

You can sneer at the Jews all you want, I'm certain you're familiar with just about every slur ever made against them. But tearing them down isn't going to make you even one bit better. Not in your faith and not in your character. I've known plenty of Jews and even Muslims who are better read and better thinkers than you'll ever be. They were also personable, thoughtful, and as men they stood behind what they said.

Yes, they damned themselves in their blasphemies, but for all that, they weren't stinking cowardly little dogs barking their mindless anger, dropping their filth and walking away from it like you.

They were men, men of character and you are not.

@mattsixteen24 I've already clarified why there is no internal contradiction between the Catechism's statements. Long paragraphs, none of which you countered. I'm certain you read them, didn't like them, and now,like any other dog who's been kicked, all you do is keep barking. But you're obviously not arguing, just tossing out these vapid irrelevancies.

Let's try it again. The Catechism states Muslims "profess to hold the faith of Abraham". It did not say that they DO hold the faith of Abraham. The Catechism states in essence, "this is what THEY say they believe". Likewise their religion and ours is monotheistic, i.e. "one merciful God." We both can worship "one merciful God", but the Catechism doesn't say they're going to Heaven.

I've already spelled out, at length, how the Catechism can acknowledge these points in Islamic belief and where, in fact, it also clearly shows their denial of Jesus and His one true Church clearly deprive non-believers from salvation and eternal life.

I called you a bigot because that's exactly what you are. Your interpretation of the Catechism is false. Your hatred of Jews is unsupported as is your claim "God hates jews" After all, he chose to bestow His only Son on humanity as a Jew. I noticed you have NOTHING to say about that. No surprises there.

In fact, if you think about it a bit further, God in all His aspects contradicts you. God The Father "hates" Jews so much He gave His Son to the world as a Jew, through womb of a Jewess -The Blessed Mother. God the Son "hates" Jews so much He chose Jews for his Apostles. Peter, the first Pope, the rock upon which Our Lord Jesus built His Church, was... a Jew. God the Holy Spirit "hates" Jews so much it descended upon the Apostles during Pentecost. All three persons of God bestowed the Jews with graces that have never been repeated..

You're wrong. You know it, I know it, your beliefs are directly contradicted not only by the Catechism, they're contradicted by the Old Testament and the New Testament, both. Even the Lutherans have a better understanding of these basics.

t's staggering what twisted reasoning allows you to even think of yourself as a Catholic. Our faith, or at least mine, is rich with Marian devotion and homage. We honour Joseph her chaste and blessed spoues. Mary and Joseph were Jews, the same kind of "Jews" you can't stand. You don't belong anywhere near a church with rot that's in your head.

And you have the nerve to claim I'm contradicting myself? Your warped view of religion makes a pretzle look straight. Catholicism worships a Jew who's the fulfillment of (wait for it) Jewish prophecy. His Heavenly Father called the Jews His "chosen people". His How can you stand to do that considering you hate Jews so much?

If you were true to your asinine hates, you should be wearing one of those silly "Thor's Hammers" and dancing around in a field with a bunch of other silly neo-pagans worshipping Himmler's Schwarze Sonne.

"Calling me a bigot just shows how indoctrinated you are by marxist beliefs that were created by jews..."

That's funny. No, really it is. You're one of those dimwits who screams "Marxist" at anyone who isn't a Jew-hater like yourself. Four centuries ago, people like you were using "witch" the same way.

"Why are defending false religions that send you to hell?"

If you had the reading comprehension of a grade-schooler, you'd recognize I've done just the opposite. I even deliberately "dumbed it down" so that you could follow along. If this is still beyond your understanding, seek out your pastor, or a good RCIA teacher and ask them to spell it out for you.

I'd reallly love to sit down with you -and- your pastor, hand him a copy of your recent posts and see what he says to you.

The jews
What you and many other protestants fail to understand is that the people who call themselves jews today do not practice the same religion as Mary and Joseph. Their false religion is based off the Talmud which came much later after Christianity. The Talmud is their most important "holy" book. It's more important than the torah for them. In it they say horrible things about Christ and BVM. They say horrible things about Catholics. They believe all non-jews are not even human. This is why they call us goyim. They are permitted to lie to and even kill non-jews. There videos online of orthodox jews they say this.

Here is some more anti-semitism for you.

“One who dies a Jew will be damned.”
— St. Vincent Ferrer

“Poor Jews! You invoked a dreadful curse upon your own heads in saying: “His blood be on us and our children”; and that curse, miserable race, you carry upon you to this day, and to the End of Time you shall endure the chastisement of that innocent blood. O my Jesus! … I will not be obstinate like the Jews. I will love Thee forever, forever, forever!”
— St. Alphonsus Maria Liguori

“The Jews wander over the entire earth, their backs bent and their eyes cast downward, forever calling to our minds the curse they carry with them.”
-St. Augustine

Pope Alexander III, Ad Hæc: “Our ways of life and those of the Jews are utterly different, and Jews will easily pervert the souls of simple folk to their superstition and unbelief if such folk are living in continual and intimate intercourse with them.”

Pope Gregory IX: “We order all our brother bishops absolutely to suppress the blasphemy of Jews in your dioceses, churches, and communities, so that they do not dare raise their necks, bent under eternal slavery, to revile the Redeemer.”

“Jews are slayers of the Lord, murderers of the prophets, enemies and haters of God, adversaries of grace, enemies of their fathers’ faith, advocates of the devil, a brood of vipers, slanderers, scoffers, men of darkened minds, the leaven of Pharisees, a congregation of demons, sinners, wicked men, haters of goodness!”
— St. Gregory of Nyssa

“The Jews are enemies of God and foes of our holy religion.”
— Padre Pio.

St. Thomas Aquinas, De Regimine Iudæorum: “It would be licit, according to custom, to hold Jews in perpetual servitude because of their crime.”

St. Augustine of Hippo: “Judaism, since Christ, is a corruption; indeed, Judas is the image of the Jewish people: their understanding of Scripture is carnal; they bear the guilt for the death of the Savior, for through their fathers they have killed Christ. The Jews held Him; the Jews insulted Him; the Jews bound Him; they crowned Him with thorns; they scourged Him; they hanged Him upon a tree.”

The faithlessness of the Synagogue is an insult to the Savior. Therefore, He chose the barque of Peter and deserted the boat of Moses; that is, He rejected the faithless Synagogue and adopted the believing Church ... Of these two ships, one is left at the shore, idle and empty; the other, loaded filled, is launched into the deep. For the Synagogue is left idle on the beach. Because of its own fault, it has lost Christ along with the warnings of the prophets. But the freighted Church is taken out into the deep, because it received the Lord together with the teaching of the Apostles. The Synagogue, I say, remains on the land, held fast as it were to earthly things. The Church is called forth to the deep, as though to search into the profound mysteries of Heaven. ~ St. Ambrose

The Jewish people fell from the heights because of their faithlessness and condemned their Redeemer to a shameful death. Their godlessness has assumed such forms that, for the salvation of our own people, it becomes necessary to prevent their disease. Besides usury, through which Jews everywhere have sucked dry the property of impoverished Christians, they are accomplices of thieves and robbers; and the most damaging aspect of the matter is that they allure the unsuspecting through magical incantations, superstition, and witchcraft to the Synagogue of Satan and boast of being able to predict the future. We have carefully investigated how this revolting sect abuses the name of Christ and how harmful they are to those whose life is threatened by their deceit. On account of these and other serious matters, and because of the gravity of their crimes which increase day to day more and more, We order that, within 90 days, all Jews in our entire earthly realm of justice -- in all towns, districts, and places -- must depart these regions. ~ Pope St. Pius V (From his Bull, "The Jewish Race," Feb.26, 1569; PAC, p.648).

Some angry Catholic whose own 150 year-old church was closed to force attendance at that abomination will, in a fit of anger, fling his Starbucks coffee against the side of the new office building and "clinic".

The police will spend millions of dollars over thee weeks using the most advanced NASA imaging technology to learn who threw the coffee. Then the LAPD SWAT team will kick in his front door while his family is having dinner. He will get tasered for "resisting arrest" (he stood up in surprise), handcuffed, kicked repeatedly in the face, then dragged down to the police station..

He will be denied bail. Eventually, after a long show-trial, he will be sentenced to five years in prison and the sentenced doubled because it was a "hate crime". An extra two years will be added for littering because of the spilled coffee. The judge will spend almost five hours lecturing the man how hate has no place in our society and how women have the right to choose.

The press will cheer and say justice was done. Pope Francis will hold a press conference praising Greta Thunberg because she skipped school to visit America and demand extra jail-time for the coffee-throwing man. "She has Christ's love of justice in her heart.." He may, or may not, kiss her feet, the feet of the judge, and the feet of the LAPD SWAT team.
