Commentary on Apocalypse Chapter XIII by Servant of God Fr. Dolindo Ruotolo † (1882-1970)

Anti-Christianity first and then the Antichrist Christianity, the Church of Jesus Christ, his mystical Body, is eminently the glorification of God. …

Further to the Interview referenced in my earlier comment, which I will also upload as a post, Archbishop Lefebvre was asked and responded to the following two questions on the Papacy and Obedience:

"Has not the pope invited you to be reconciled? Have you accepted this invitation?"

"I requested to see the pope last August. The pope refused unless I signed a statement accepting unconditionally all the resolutions of Vatican II.

I would very much like to see the pope, but I cannot sign resolutions paving the way for the destruction of the church."


"How can you be loyal to the church and disobedient to the pope?"

"One must understand the meaning of obedience and must distinguish between blind obedience and the virtue of obedience. Indiscriminate obedience is actually a sin against the virtue of obedience.

"So if we disobey in order to practice the virtue of obedience rather than submit to unlawful commands contrary to Catholic moral teachings, all one has to do is to consult any Catholic theology books to realize we are not sinning against the virtue of obedience."

"We must be totalitarianly faithful to God and the Church, and totalitarianly uncompromising against evil. We must make no assignments to the beasts and the dragon, and we must not be so foolish and weak as to be miserably seduced."

"We must be totalitarianly faithful to God and the Church, and totalitarianly uncompromising against evil. We must make no assignments to the beasts and the dragon, and we must not be so foolish and weak as to be miserably seduced."

THIS is exactly what didn't happen at -- and following -- Vatican II, when the orthodox schemas prepared for the Council by Archbishop Lefebvre and the other Council Fathers who worked alongside him were cast aside by the Modernists when they seized control of the Council almost immediately after the Council was convened.

And ever since the Council, we see members of the Hierarchy and even Popes causing widespread confusion about matters which pertain to the Deposit of Faith. This cannot be denied, and it is precisely because these churchmen are unwilling to do what is mentioned in the quote above.

And, for the record, so it can never been falsely stated in this forum yet again, Archbishop Lefebvre did not sign two of the heterodox documents from Vatican II, a fact which he explains in this interview, in which this venerable prelate states the following in answer to the question posed:
__________

"Did you let the pope (Paul VI) know of your concern and disquiet regarding these resolutions?"

"I have talked to the pope. I have talked to the council. I have made three public interventions, two of which I have filed with the secretariat. Therefore, there were five interventions against these resolutions of Vatican II.

"In fact, the opposition led against these resolutions was such that the pope attempted to establish a commission with the aim of reconciling the opposing parties within the council. There were to be three members, of which I was one.

"When the liberal cardinals learned that my name was on this commission, they went to see the holy father (the pope) and told him bluntly that they would not accept this commission and that they would not accept my presence on this commission. The pressure on the pope was such that he gave up the idea.

"I have done everything I could to stop these resolutions which I judge contrary and destructive to the Catholic faith. The council was convened legitimately, but it was for the purpose of putting all these ideas through."

Every faithful Catholic solicitous for the preservation of our Holy Catholic Faith against the assaults and inroads of Modernism and the destruction of our Patrimony was duty-bound to resist it -- and that includes the Popes who betrayed this mandate and punished those who would not.
