Front Page Mag: The transformation of the Catholic Church into a Church that reflects and teaches the mores of secular society is happening faster than what some doomsayers say is the melting of the polar ice caps.
Recently, Pope Francis named 21 new cardinals, the majority of whom are liberal “company men” who are unlikely to rock the Roman progressivist establishment, unlike the heroic Salvatore Cordileone, Archbishop of San Francisco, who banned Speaker Nancy Pelosi from receiving Holy Communion in any parish in the Archdiocese there.
Many of Francis’ cardinal-appointees are liturgical liberals or radicals, like Blasé Cardinal Cupich, who has severely restricted the celebration of the Traditional Latin Mass and promotes bizarre liturgical innovation.
In December 2021, Cupich said Mass in an Illinois high school where he blessed a Chinese lion-shaped puppet after the idol performed a dance around the altar. With an almost perverted, menacing authoritarianism, Francis appointed Cupich to head the Vatican Liturgy office. This is somewhat like making Liz Cheney the head of the David Horowitz Freedom Center. Read More …
Opinion: The Society of Jesus, also known as the Jesuits, is a religious order of the Catholic Church headquartered in Rome. It was founded by Ignatius of Loyola and six companions with the approval of Pope Paul III in 1540.
Historically, the Society has been the object of considerable suspicion from more traditional religious orders and from sections of the Catholic laity. Pope Paul IV, who served from 1555 to 1559, described the Society’s internal structure as a tyranny, and in a difficult and bad-tempered exchange with the second superior general of the Jesuits, he alleged that if they did not begin the choral recitation of the office, one day “Satan would arise from their ranks.”
Article: Pope Francis’ most egregious “red hat” choice is Robert McElroy, bishop of San Diego, who seems to have swapped the Catholic Catechism for the Catechism of climate change, racism and the “immorality” of placing limits on immigration from third world countries. McElroy loves to boast how the “sins” of climate change and racism (not real racism but the fake racism that descries everything as “racist”) are of far greater importance than the sin of abortion.
McElroy might be described as a mirror-image of Wilton Cardinal Gregory, the Archbishop of Washington, or the (affable) religious jester in the Court of President Biden and House Speaker Pelosi. Both McElroy and Gregory believe that Catholics who support abortion rights should not be denied communion. McElroy believes that denying pro-choice politicians communion is nothing less than a political tactic, or “the weaponization of the Eucharist.”
Under Pope Francis’s direction, a growing and lethal form of progressivism has now formed irreversible tidal pools in the world of Catholicism.
You know where this is going. Lethal progressivism in the world’s largest (Christian) denomination is paving the road to a new pontiff who could be one of the 101 new Cardinals appointed by Francis.
“Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon.” Revelation 13:11
The beast from the earth (against heaven) will give the impression of a lamb in the person of a religious character, completing the Satanic trinity 666:
- The beast from the sea (Rev. 13:1) Counterfeit son
- The Dragon (Rev. 13:2) gave him power – Counterfeit father
- The False Prophet (Rev. 13:11) Counterfeit holy spirit
In the same way that the true Holy Spirit has equal authority with the true Son, the False Prophet will have equal authority with the counterfeit son (Rev. 13:12).
In the same way the true Holy Spirit has the power of miracles, the False Prophet will perform signs and wonders for the purpose of deception (Rev. 13:13).
In the same way the true Holy Spirit calls on all men to worship the true Son, the False Prophet will force all men to worship an image of the false son (Rev. 13:14).
With the counterfeit trinity completed, the final 3.5 years of the tribulation will commence.
