Vatican’s Finances: The Problem Is Lies At the Top

@Kenjiro M. Yoshimori Bergoglio is positioning the Counterfeit Church to be the recipient of enormous sums of money. When he officially inverts the doctrines of the Church, the enemies of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church will flood the Bergoglian Counterfeit Church with too much money to count. Then the Counterfeit Church will be the conduit for solving all of the "problems" of "the world." It will be a super global non-profit backed by every nation and every billionaire on the planet. But the biggest investor in the Anti-Church will be Satan.

This is what is meant in the Catechism of the Catholic Church, section 675, when it says that the Antichrist will propose "a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth." The Counterfeit Church will say that we must put aside our theological and moral differences so that we can tackle the world's problems together. And he will claim it is the Holy Spirit talking through him. He will be a new "Christ" come back to set the world right again.

The people who refuse to go along with him will be "persecuted" as haters and backwardists. But all we need to do is love and follow what Jesus taught and what his true Church has always taught. Keep the Commandments. Watch and pray. Use the "persecution" as an instrument of purification. Learn to hate the things of "the world" and love the things of God. And never forget that the good guys win in the end.

@Kenjiro M. Yoshimori The current law governing the papal election is the key. UDG was that law in 2013 and still is the law today with some minor modifications by Benedict XVI right before he "retired." Historical examples cannot supersede the current law.

We seem to agree that Bergoglio is not a legitimate Pope. This is the most important thing. But people need to understand that Benedict XVI is still the lawful Vicar of Christ. He is simply "retired." In his absence and until a new lawful Pope is elected AFTER Benedict's death, the Cardinal's power is extremely limited. UDG explains what those limits are.

But we mustn't think that Bergoglio has any legitimate power to do anything he has done. He was not appointed to the Curia by Benedict BEFORE the "retirement." Therefore, Bergoglio has no lawful authority to do anything. This is important to keep in mind for those people who are wringing their hands that Bergoglio is "destroying the Church." No, Bergoglio cannot destroy the true Church.

Instead he is erecting the "Counterfeit Church." He will be very successful from a numbers standpoint. The number of souls who will follow Bergoglio to hell will be unbelievable. But you must understand, Bergoglio is the False Prophet at the moment. In the very near future, either he will morph into the Antichrist or his immediate successor in the Counterfeit Church will be the prophesied Antichrist. Yes, we are that close to the consummation of the Age.

The big picture is that God is in control. Read the parable of the wheat and the tares. God is allowing everything to happen just as it has because He needs to allow people to choose their god. Will it be the True God, the Holy Trinity of the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church or will it be the god of Humanism, Wokism and Fraternity.

Jorge Mario Bergoglio is an antipope. He is not lawfully-elected to the papacy, according to the requirements of the Apostolic Constitution Universi Dominici Gregis. The following site explains it all: Home | Antipope Jorge Mario Bergoglio.

Benedict XVI is still the legitimate Vicar of Christ, although he has stepped aside ordinary governance. In his absence, the Roman Curial officials that he appointed have the legal authority to run the day-to-day affairs of the Church. But nothing substantive can change in the absence of the Pope's signature.

Bergoglio's Curial government is as illegitimate as he is. All of them, including the Cardinals and diocesan bishops that the antipope has appointed have no governing authority in the Church.

But, do not worry, the gates of hell will not prevail, take refuge in Pope Benedict XVI. Pray for him in this time of need. We are in the times of the Apocalypse. Get serious about your Catholic Faith. Go to Confession weekly. Attend the TLM as often as possible. Pray the Rosary daily.

@Kenjiro M. Yoshimori Compare your description to that of the JPII Catechism. Note the words I emphasized and underlined in Section 677. The Church will, like Jesus, appear to die, but will be miraculously resurrected. This will come NOT THROUGH a triumph of the Church IN HISTORY, but ONLY BY God's victory. In other words, Jesus is our savior. We cannot save ourselves through our own efforts, our own institutions. This final trial will be a lesson to us that without Him we are nothing. You are setting yourself up for disappointment, if you believe the Church can overcome this final trial without Jesus's miraculous intervention. Instead, trust Jesus and Mary, pray and keep the Commandments. Don't set yourself up for disappointment by expecting something that is not prophesied and taught in the Catechism. May Our Lord bless you.

The Church's ultimate trial

675 Before Christ's second coming the Church must pass through a final trial that will shake the faith of many believers.573 The persecution that accompanies her pilgrimage on earth574 will unveil the "mystery of iniquity" in the form of a religious deception offering men an apparent solution to their problems at the price of apostasy from the truth. the supreme religious deception is that of the Antichrist, a pseudo-messianism by which man glorifies himself in place of God and of his Messiah come in the flesh.575

676 The Antichrist's deception already begins to take shape in the world every time the claim is made to realize within history that messianic hope which can only be realized beyond history through the eschatological judgement. the Church has rejected even modified forms of this falsification of the kingdom to come under the name of millenarianism,576 especially the "intrinsically perverse" political form of a secular messianism.577

677 The Church will enter the glory of the kingdom only through this final Passover, when she will follow her Lord in his death and Resurrection.578 The kingdom will be fulfilled, then, not by a historic triumph of the Church through a progressive ascendancy, but only by God's victory over the final unleashing of evil, which will cause his Bride to come down from heaven.579 God's triumph over the revolt of evil will take the form of the Last Judgement after the final cosmic upheaval of this passing world.580

And how about all of His warnings about "false prophets?" Who do you think he's talking about? It is an antipope (a false papal claimant) who is "the False Prophet" of the Apocalypse. That man is Jorge Bergoglio. Stay tuned and you will be convinced soon enough.

Meanwhile the true Pope is Benedict XVI. His "resignation" was only apparent. He remains the true Vicar of Christ. His actions up to now have been guided by the Holy Spirit. A formal schism will come soon, and the authentic Remnant of the Catholic Church will recognize Benedict XVI as the final Pope and Bergoglio as an antipope.

Read the prophecies of St. Malachy, LaSalette, Fatima, Garabandal, etc. Read the original St. Michael prayer of Leo XIII. Read 2 Thessalonians 2, which speaks of an apostasy that must happen right before the Man of Sin (aka the Antichrist) reveals himself. Spoiler alert: the "man of sin" is Bergoglio.

The word "sacrifice" is used 6 times in this document. In each case, it refers either to the historical sacrifice of Jesus on the Cross or to the believer's sacrifice of praise during the "celebration." What is left out is the Catholic Dogma that in the authentic Holy Sacrifice of the Mass we find the same Sacrifice that Christ accomplished on the cross is made truly present in an unbloody manner on the altar. The Mass is not only about producing the Sacrament (the Eucharist) but requires the performance of the perpetual Sacrifice in order to be pleasing to God.

This true Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is primarily for the atonement of the ongoing sins of the world. By the priests performing the Holy Sacrifice, God's wrath is held back. When this perpetual Sacrifice of the Mass ends (Book of Daniel), we will experience "the Day of the Lord." Bergoglio makes it clear in this document that the Novus Ordo is not concerned with performing the perpetual propitiatory Sacrifice. He preaches a "new Gospel."

Instead, the Novus Ordo is only about a Supper (and a re-enactment of "the Paschal Mystery") that all of the baptized (stained by mortal sin or not) should participate, culminating in the taking of Holy Communion. Nowhere does Bergoglio repeat St. Paul's warning (and unchanging Church teaching) about the danger of receiving Communion in a state of mortal sin. As the Novus Ordosong says "All are welcome."

To all of you "Catholics" on the fence, you must decide. Do you want to actually be Catholic or not? If you want to be Catholic and follow Jesus, then attend the traditional Mass exclusively and abide by the consistent, traditional, pre-Vatican II teaching of the Church. If you want to follow Anti-pope Bergoglio into error, then attend the Novus Ordo "celebration" instead. In the process, the Wheat will be separated from the Chaff. But remember that the Wheat is harvested and the Chaff gets burned up.

Not that any of the above matters, since the consecration must be done by "the Pope." Bergoglio was not canonically-elected because Benedict did not resign the office to begin with.

By praying Bergoglio’s prayer, you are supporting the idea that Our Lady didn’t have the words or instructions right and now Bergoglio (who is definitely not Pope) has finally come up with the correct formula. He is intentionally ignoring her precise request. Choose Mary over Bergoglio. Ignore him instead of ignoring her.

@thomasvalle Please research the pagan Pachamama ritual that took place under the watchful eye "Pope Francis" on October 4, 2019. Then research the Abu Dhabi Document and the Abrahamic Family House that is being promoted by "Pope Francis."

Then read the Catechism of the Catholic Church that states the following:

"Outside the Church there is no salvation"

846 How are we to understand this affirmation, often repeated by the Church Fathers? Re-formulated positively, it means that all salvation comes from Christ the Head through the Church which is his Body:

Basing itself on Scripture and Tradition, the Council teaches that the Church, a pilgrim now on earth, is necessary for salvation: the one Christ is the mediator and the way of salvation; he is present to us in his body which is the Church. He himself explicitly asserted the necessity of faith and Baptism, and thereby affirmed at the same time the necessity of the Church which men enter through Baptism as through a door. Hence they could not be saved who, knowing that the Catholic Church was founded as necessary by God through Christ, would refuse either to enter it or to remain in it.


After you have done this, tell me how "Pope Francis" is not, at the very least, failing in his mission to warn poor souls who persist in religious error that they will not be saved. Rather than call those "outside the Church" to "enter it and remain in it," by word and example, "Pope Francis" encourages those in error to remain in that error. And remember, that we sin not only by what we "do" but what we "fail to do."

Six Reasons: Women Should Wear a Veil in Church

While all of this lady's reasons are laudable, there is a more important reason that women should wear the veil. St. Paul explains it in 1 Corinthians 11.

While all of this lady's reasons are laudable, there is a more important reason that women should wear the veil. St. Paul explains it in 1 Corinthians 11.

As St. Paul explains, the head covering is not simply a "discipline" or a "nice gesture of modesty." No, there is a theological reason that women are REQUIRED to wear a head covering when in the Church.

That reason is because every woman should accept the responsibility for "the Fall of Man" in the Garden of Eden. Eve disobeyed God and tempted Adam. All women, in the wayfaring state of this life, bear the responsibility and shame of Eve's disobedience. Eve rebelled and caused the Fall. Mary proclaimed her "fiat" and started the path to Redemption. But, in this life, the woman must be subject to a man because of the original rebellion against God that started with Eve. The process of Redemption is not complete and, so, women must acknowledge this fact by continuing to wear the veil.

If you cannot understand the theology behind the veil, that's okay. You should simply obey St. Paul. He tells us in 1 Corinthians 11:2 to "keep my ordinances as I have delivered them to you." Women who refuse to wear the veil in Church, knowing that St. Paul requires it, are re-enacting the very kind of rebellious act that Eve perpetrated in the Garden. In fact, St. Paul says that these women who refuse to wear a veil "may as well shave their heads" like prostitutes did in ancient Rome. A prostitute ignores that laws of God and degrades herself as she asserts her independence from His laws. So the woman who ignores St. Paul's divinely-inspired ordinances degrades herself as she "asserts her right" to dress as she pleases.

Furthermore, the Catholic Church has always officially stated that women should wear the veil in Church. The requirement was explicit in Canon Law until 1983. The fact that it is not mentioned in 1983 Canon law does not change the fact that divine law, as stated by St. Paul, still requires it and the Tradition has always followed St. Paul's instruction.

The veil is pleasing to God. It is pleasing for reasons that are hard for modern women to understand. Wear it to show your love for God and to avoid bringing disgrace upon yourself and your family.
