The Francis Effect: Fire in the Abbey of the Dormition

[11] And entering into the house, they found the child with Mary his mother, and falling down they adored him; and opening their treasures, they offered him gifts; gold, frankincense, and myrrh. [12] And having received an answer in sleep that they should not return to Herod, they went back another way into their country. [13] And after they were departed, behold an angel of the Lord appeared in sleep to Joseph, saying: Arise, and take the child and his mother, and fly into Egypt: and be there until I shall tell thee. For it will come to pass that Herod will seek the child to destroy him.

If you read the article I posted about the Jewish protests in response to Bergoglio's visit to the Cenacle, then you sadly won't be too surprised by this latest attack against Christian holy place in what is now the Jewish State of Israel.

[BTW, isn't it odd that at the same time that the "democratic"/masonic/satanic forces of the world were demanding the disbandoning of Catholic states... a Jewish State was being imposed upon Christians in the Holy Land.... and after Vatican II and its "Declaration of Religious Freedom" it was the Church herself that demanded that Catholic states such as Colombia, Spain, Italy and Argentina re-write their constitutions to provide "freedom of religion" and to abolish the rights of the Church.... a sad, sad time for our world and for Our Lord Jesus Christ and for Our Mother Mary.]

The Abbey of the Dormition is directly connected to the Cenacle and is revered as the site where Mary was assumed body and soul into Heaven.

From CNA news:
"Holy Land: Vandal tries to set fire to Dormition Abbey"

Jerusalem, Israel, May 28, 2014 / 01:03 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- As Pope Francis concluded his trip to the Holy Land on May 26, an unknown man attempted to set fire to the Abbey of the Dormition, the place where according to tradition the Virgin Mary fell asleep before being assumed into Heaven.

Witnesses told the EFE news agency that an unknown man set fire to a book and placed it on top of a small pile of wooden crosses in between the pews. The fire was immediately extinguished.

“We called the police right away and fortunately the security team for the papal visit was still in place. Firefighters arrived and were able to control the flames,” one of the Benedictine monks at the abbey told EFE.

Israeli police are investigating the incident.

Another witness told EFE that after the Pope's Mass, a group of young ultra-Orthodox Jews accompanied by their rabbi, began verbally confronting the Franciscan friars and accusing them of perverting the Jewish holiness of the building where the Upper Room is located, believed to be the site of the descent of the Holy Spirit upon Jesus' apostles

Since the 12th century, Jews have held that the tomb of King David is located beneath the building. For this reason, Israeli officials do not allow Mass to be celebrated there except on Holy Thursday and Pentecost. Special permission was granted for Pope Francis' visit.

Located on Mount Zion, the Upper Room was under the care of the Franciscan Custody of the Holy Land for 200 years, but Suleiman the Magnificent expropriated it in the 16th century, and it came under the control of the Israelis after the creation of the state of Israel in 1948.

The building has been the target of repeated vandalism and protests in recent years by extremist Jews who demand the expulsion of Christians.

Cenacle to remain under Jewish control

[19] And taking bread, he gave thanks, and brake; and gave to them, saying: This is my body, which is given for you. Do this for a commemoration of me. [20] In like manner the chalice also, after he had supped, saying: This is the chalice, the new testament in my blood, which shall be shed for you.

[21] But yet behold, the hand of him that betrayeth me is with me on the table. [22] And the Son of man indeed goeth, according to that which is determined: but yet, woe to that man by whom he shall be betrayed.

On Mount Zion, protesting the pope and preaching the status quo

Concert held to send message of Jewish unity and control of fraught religious site, but some ramp up anti-Francis rhetoric

A site venerated by Jews as the final resting place of the biblical King David and by Christians as where Jesus held his Last Supper has inspired passions and ignited tensions, casting a pall over a visit there by Pope Francis next week.

On Thursday night, over 1,000 Jews gathered on Mount Zion for a concert and prayer rally intended to send a message that the site would remain under Jewish control.

“We wanted to bring unity,” said event organizer Jerry Latinik, a medical supplies salesman who moved to Israel nine months ago.

“We really felt that King David was all about singing, and prayer, so instead of doing something with picket signs, we wanted to do something with love and song, that involves everybody.”

But as passions grow before the impending visit of Pope Francis to the Holy Land Sunday, some elements at the concert pushed a harsh anti-Christian message, one that threatened the event organizers’ goal of Jewish unity.

The site, sitting on a ridge adjacent to Jerusalem’s Old City, is one of several religiously freighted locations in the city treading a delicate balance governed by an obligation to maintain a “status quo” set during Ottoman rule.

“This is not justice, to change the status quo, which has held for over 100 years from the time of the British. We welcome every person, the pope as well, especially as he represents millions of believers, human beings, creations of God,” said Rabbi Yitzhak Goldstein, a leading figure at the local Diaspora Yeshiva, which has been at the forefront of the struggle to keep the church from gaining increased access to the Cenacle.

The building, which also housed a mosque, is also part of a decades-old property dispute between Israel and the Vatican.

Despite official assurances that Israel does not intend to hand the site over to the Vatican’s sovereignty, the idea that Jerusalem will transfer control of the site has gained traction in some religious circles.

Israel says it is in discussions with the Vatican only over the rights of the Catholic church to hold regular masses there, something currently prohibited by the status quo.

“We are not asking for sovereignty over Mount Zion or the Tomb of David,” said Father David Neuhaus, leader of Israel’s Hebrew Catholic community. “We are asking for something very small. In view of the enormous importance of the site, we are asking for access.”

“There is no truth whatsoever to these rumors” about ceding control, said Akiva Tor, head of the Jewish Affairs and World Religions Bureau at the Foreign Ministry.

“The room of the Last Supper will remain under Israeli ownership and possession and will be operated by Israel in any future agreement. And the negotiations with the Vatican on exactly what will be the standing of the Cenacle is part of our negotiation with them… The negotiations on the economic agreement deals with many practical issues such as taxation and municipal taxes and other items related to Church property in Israel. Among the many issues discussed, there has also been discussion about appropriate arrangements for Christian prayer in the Cenaculum.”

A source, who asked not to be named, told The Times of Israel that Israel has “basically agreed to give them usage,” but because of the recent campaign by ultra-Orthodox Jews to prevent increased Catholic control on Mount Zion, Israel has decided to wait until things quiet down after the pope’s visit.

A planned mass at the site by Francis has raised hackles among some Orthodox Jews. A number of figures from the Jewish far right appeared at the rally calling for the pope to skip visiting Israel.

“We first of all want to pass a message to the government of Israel, that this kissing up to the pope is a betrayal of the Jewish people in all its generations,” Michael Ben Ari, a disciple of Rabbi Meir Kahane, told The Times of Israel. “The pope needs to come quietly, so no one feels him, and see that Christianity has lost in its war against the Jews. To give him a prize for coming here is a loss of values, and is a betrayal of millions of Jews who were slaughtered, who were burned, who were pursued.”

Ben Ari and several associates held signs that read, “The accursed Christianity is party to the murder of millions of Jews in various deaths, under the leadership of the Church and its heads. They dream of erasing the Jewish state. The pope is impure. Leave our holy land. Return our stolen holy vessels.”

Baruch Marzel, a far-right politician, echoed Ben Ari’s statements. “He has to stay in Rome. They did enough damage to Jews in the exile, they killed millions of Jews.

“The pope comes here to demand rights on the land of Israel, and on the tomb of King David. That is like calling a war against the Jewish people.”

But others rejected Ben Ari’s and Marzel’s anti-Christian message.

“I actually wish they didn’t bring the signs, because that’s the exact message that we’re not trying to bring about,” said Latinik. “Those are just individuals coming and expressing themselves, but it has nothing to do with our views. I am not happy those signs are there, because we want to portray a message that’s the complete opposite.”

Jewish singers who volunteered to perform at the event also were perturbed by the rumors of an impending transfer of sovereignty.

“My soul is very tied to here,” said singer Chaim Dovid. “My early years of repentance were here. So I’m very connected to this mountain and this place and King David… If the pope wants to talk to us, tell him to bring whatever is in the Vatican that belongs to us, and bring it with him, and then we’ll start to talk and get to know each other.”

Despite the political overtones of the concert, many of the teenagers at the event said they had just come for the music.

“I’m just here because I heard there’s a nice concert,” said Dalia Presser, 19.

Ali Duskis, originally from Monsey, New York, was also there for the tunes, and said she disagreed with those wanting to protest the pontiff during his visit.

“It’s not in our belief, so it’s not a party for us. But we should definitely say hi, make him feel that he’s not hated,” she said.

Bergoglio blames (new?) Adam

[22] Pilate saith to them: What shall I do then with Jesus that is called Christ? They say all: Let him be crucified. [23] The governor said to them: Why, what evil hath he done? But they cried out the more, saying: Let him be crucified. [24] And Pilate seeing that he prevailed nothing, but that rather a tumult was made; taking water washed his hands before the people, saying: I am innocent of the blood of this just man; look you to it. [25] And the whole people answering, said: His blood be upon us and our children.

-- Gospel According to Saint Matthew 27:22-25

Bergoglio tells Catholics to stop obsessing over abortion and euthanasia -- that's BAD!

BUT.....

.... apparently he thinks it is good to obsess over the loss of Jewish lives at the hands of the Nazis during WWII -- even though most of us were not even born at the time; even though we hardly need to be reminded since it is constantly in the news and in the movies and in the school curriculum....

Now Bergoglio tells us that it's all Adam's fault. In what sounds like a masonic or kabbalistic prayer, Bergoglio puts the following FALSE words into the mouth of Almighty God the Father:

“Adam, who are you? I no longer recognise you. Who are you, o man? What have you become? Of what horror have you been capable? What made you fall to such depths? Certainly it is not the dust of the earth from which you were made. The dust of the earth is something good, the work of my hands. Certainly it is not the breath of life which I breathed into you. That breath comes from me, and it is something good.
“No, this abyss is not merely the work of your own hands, your own heart… Who corrupted you? Who disfigured you? Who led you to presume that you are the master of good and evil? Who convinced you that you were god? Not only did you torture and kill your brothers and sisters, but you sacrificed them to yourself, because you made yourself a god."

Frankly, this speech (or prayer) makes little to no sense....

Zenit news service says, "Pope Francis called on the Lord to give mankind the grace to be ashamed of the 'massive idolatry' that led to the Holocaust, and cried out: 'Never again, Lord, never again!' "

This is the first time I've ever heard that the Nazi campaign against the Jews was caused by "massive idolatry"....

.....BUT.....

..... what happens when your replace the name of Adam, with that of the New Adam -- Jesus Christ???

Suddenly, it all makes sense.... in a very perverse way.... in a way that would be clearly understood by those "perfidious" Jews that hate the Messiah and by freemasons of the highest order.

Bergoglio is blaming the death of Jews at hands of the pagan Nazis directly on Christ and on all Christians. He is saying "their blood is upon all Christians and our children".

This is the ANTI-gospel of the ANTI-christ.

Also Sprach Bergoglio!

Is Bergoglio running for Miss Universe?

[27] Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, do I give unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, nor let it be afraid. [28] You have heard that I said to you: I go away, and I come unto you. If you loved me, you would indeed be glad, because I go to the Father: for the Father is greater than I. [29] And now I have told you before it comes to pass: that when it shall come to pass, you may believe. [30] I will not now speak many things with you. For the prince of this world cometh, and in me he hath not any thing.

 -- Gospel According to Saint John 14:27-30

 + + +

Is Bergoglio running for Miss Universe?

That's the question.

 + + +

And now for the Bergoglio joke of the day...

What do Bergoglio and Miss Universe have in common?

They both want "world peace".

 + + +

Seriously? Can't the Vicar of Christ come up with something more profound to say than a beauty pageant candidate? Does he think he is Miss Catholic Church running in the Miss Religions of the World contest?

If he must talk about peace, why not speak of the Peace of Christ which is NOT the peace of this world?

It is as if when satan tempted Christ and offered him the world -- He had failed this test.

Well there is a "sort-of-christ" that says yes to the devil. He is the anointed one of satan -- the anti-christ.

We beseech Bishop Fellay to call a Council of Restoration

[1] And Paul looking upon the council, said: Men, brethren, I have conversed with all good conscience before God until this present day. [2] And the high priest Ananias commanded them that stood by him to strike him on the mouth. [3] Then Paul said to him: God shall strike thee, thou whited wall. For sittest thou to judge me according to the law, and contrary to the law commandest me to be struck? [4] And they that stood by said: Dost thou revile the high priest of God? [5] And Paul said: I knew not, brethren, that he is the high priest. For it is written: Thou shalt not speak evil of the prince of thy people.

The Acts Of The Apostles 23:1-5

 + + +

Dear Bishop Fellay,

We beseech you to call a Ecumenical Council of Restoration. Invite all those who profess the true Catholic faith.

The mission of this Council will be:

- To "restore all things in Christ" as Saint Pius X exhorted us.
- To condemn the errors of the Conciliar Church.
= To anathematize Vatican Council II.
- To, in all mercy, ex-communicate "Pope Francis" and denounce his false teachings.
- To elect a new Pope, a true successor of Peter.
- To send a clear message to all the Bishops and Cardinals that they must choose whether to continue to follow the false Conciliar Church or remain faithful to the Holy Catholic Church.

The time is fast approaching when this must be done in order to save the Church from falling into complete ruin.

Yours in Christ,
Michael

Bergoglio joke of the day

[12] And they said to Lot: Hast thou here any of thine? son in law, or sons, or daughters, all that are thine bring them out of this city: [13] For we will destroy this place, because their cry is grown loud before the Lord, who hath sent us to destroy them. [14] So Lot went out, and spoke to his sons in law that were to have his daughters, and said: Arise: get you out of this place, because the Lord will destroy this city. And he seemed to them to speak as it were in jest. [15] And when it was morning, the angels pressed him, saying: Arise, take thy wife, and the two daughters which thou hast: lest thou also perish in the wickedness of the city.

Book Of Genesis -- Chapter 19

What is the difference between last night's satanic black mass at Harvard and Bergoglio's typical morning mass at the Santa Marta guest house?

The Harvard celebrant didn't use a consecrated host.... and also I suspect the homily was better -- if not more orthodox then at least more coherent..... probably more traditional as well come to think of it.

One thing they both agree on is that Pope Paul VI should be beatified.

..... Yes. Things have gotten that bad.

 + + +

[24] And the Lord rained upon Sodom and Gomorrha brimstone and fire from the Lord out of heaven. [25] And he destroyed these cities, and all the country about, all the inhabitants of the cities, and all things that spring from the earth.

 + + +

Notice that Lot's sons in law thought he "spoke in jest". They thought it was all a big joke. It was no joke.

O God my God .... why hast thou forsaken me?

Psalm 21

[2] O God my God, look upon me: why hast thou forsaken me? Far from my salvation are the words of my sins. [3] O my God, I shall cry by day, and thou wilt not hear: and by night, and it shall not be reputed as folly in me. [4] But thou dwellest in the holy place, the praise of Israel. [5] In thee have our fathers hoped: they have hoped, and thou hast delivered them.

[2] The words of my sins: That is, the sins of the world, which I have taken upon myself, cry out against me, and are the cause of all my sufferings.

[6] They cried to thee, and they were saved: they trusted in thee, and were not confounded. [7] But I am a worm, and no man: the reproach of men, and the outcast of the people. [8] All they that saw me have laughed me to scorn: they have spoken with the lips, and wagged the head. [9] He hoped in the Lord, let him deliver him: let him save him, seeing he delighteth in him. [10] For thou art he that hast drawn me out of the womb: my hope from the breasts of my mother.

[11] I was cast upon thee from the womb. From my mother' s womb thou art my God, [12] Depart not from me. For tribulation is very near: for there is none to help me. [13] Many calves have surrounded me: fat bulls have besieged me. [14] They have opened their mouths against me, as a lion ravening and roaring. [15] I am poured out like water; and all my bones are scattered. My heart is become like wax melting in the midst of my bowels.

[16] My strength is dried up like a potsherd, and my tongue hath cleaved to my jaws: and thou hast brought me down into the dust of death. [17] For many dogs have encompassed me: the council of the malignant hath besieged me. They have dug my hands and feet. [18] They have numbered all my bones. And they have looked and stared upon me. [19] They parted my garments amongst them; and upon my vesture they cast lots. [20] But thou, O Lord, remove not thy help to a distance from me; look towards my defence.

[21] Deliver, O God, my soul from the sword: my only one from the hand of the dog. [22] Save me from the lion' s mouth; and my lowness from the horns of the unicorns. [23] I will declare thy name to my brethren: in the midst of the church will I praise thee. [24] Ye that fear the Lord, praise him: all ye the seed of Jacob, glorify him. [25] Let all the seed of Israel fear him: because he hath not slighted nor despised the supplication of the poor man. Neither hath he turned away his face from me: and when I cried to him he heard me.

[26] With thee is my praise in a great church: I will pay my vows in the sight of them that fear him. [27] The poor shall eat and shall be filled: and they shall praise the Lord that seek him: their hearts shall live for ever and ever. [28] All the ends of the earth shall remember, and shall be converted to the Lord: And all the kindreds of the Gentiles shall adore in his sight. [29] For the kingdom is the Lord' s; and he shall have dominion over the nations. [30] All the fat ones of the earth have eaten and have adored: all they that go down to the earth shall fall before him.

[31] And to him my soul shall live: and my seed shall serve him. [32] There shall be declared to the Lord a generation to come: and the heavens shall shew forth his justice to a people that shall be born, which the Lord hath made.

Tonight I fell asleep early and when I woke up the wind was howling and I felt a diabolic presence... I looked at the time and it was almost midnight... And I opened the door and looked out expecting to see rain, but I saw no rain... only the shadows of the tree limbs swaying in the howling wind as I felt a chill from an evil presence... I made the sign of the Cross... I closed the door.... I sat at my computer and stared at the unholy news of the un-Godly act that was being committed tonight at Harvard -- the officially sanctioned worship of satan! .... to be sure the bishop's office published a tepid press release expressing "deep sadness and strong opposition”  in the local paper....

Excerpt from the last chapter of Dietrich von Hildebrand’s seminal study of the post-conciliar crisis – The Devastated Vineyard:
http://angelqueen.org/2014/01/14/dietrich-von-hildebrand-on-how-to-respond-to-the-crisis-in-the-church/

We must not underestimate the power of those ideas which fill the intellectual atmosphere of the time, nor the danger of being infected by them when we are daily breathing this atmosphere. Nor should we underestimate the danger of getting used to the evils of the times, and then becoming insensitive to them. At first perhaps many people see the devastation of the vineyard, and react in the right way. But after a while one becomes accustomed to it. Then, too, there is this to consider, that the devastation of the vineyard is an increasing process, and so certain evils which belong to the earlier stages, seem harmless in the light of the later stages. And so we are in danger of becoming insensitive, on the one hand, because the devastation progresses, and its beginnings seem insignificant in the light of its advanced forms.

But it is still worse to become infected than to be insensitive. The first thing to be done in order to avoid both dangers is to realize completely how extraordinary is the situation in which we live today. St. Peter tells us, “Brethren, be watchful and sober, for your adversary the devil goes about like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour….

…..Today these trends [of error and disobedience] are able to develop within the Church. We can clearly discern them in sermons, in pastoral letters, and in books by well known authors. Since these bad trends encounter so little resistance within the Church, it has become much more difficult for the simple faithful to grasp their incompatibility with the deposit of Faith. Thus, St. Peter’s exhortation to watchfulness applies today in a special way to watchfulness with respect to heresies within the Church. We must constantly determine whether sermons, or new books, do not contain something heretical, or some basically false emphasis. The Imprimatur used to be a great guarantee, and especially the Index [of forbidden books]. But today we have to develop in ourselves a special awareness, a holy mistrust, for we not only live in a poisoned world, but in a devastated Church. In our present trial God requires of us this watchfulness, this holy fear of being infected. It would be a lack of humility to think that we are in no danger of being infected. It would be a false security rooted in pride if we were to think that we are immune. Each of us must become aware of his frailty, and understand that this special watchfulness is required of us by God in the trial which we are going through……..

Our response must be……a growth in faith, hope, and charity. Is not the devastation of the vineyard of the Lord an exhortation to love God, Christ, and His Holy Church more than ever? Do we not betray Christ if we turn away in disgust? Should not we of all people strive to see that true beauty of the vineyard of the Lord, which objectively must be to work for the glorification of God, and toward our own personal sanctification, and to oppose this-worldliness by our own unconditional imitation of Christ.

This has of course become more difficult. We are not longer surrounded by the radiance of the Holy Church as we were before the Council…….Today our Faith no longer has the great support and help of previous generations, and it has to penetrate through much which is foreign to this sacred world in order to reach that tremendous and sacred event, the mystery of the unbloody re-enactment of Calvary, and of the union of love between our soul and Jesus in Communion. This is precisely why the devastation of the vineyard of the Lord is a time when our faith is tried, when we are called upon to grow in faith, hope, and charity. But it is a time of trial which demands a completely new kind of watchfulness……
