A Vatican II Pope

[1] Dearly beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits if they be of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. [2] By this is the spirit of God known. Every spirit which confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh, is of God: [3] And every spirit that dissolveth Jesus, is not of God: and this is Antichrist, of whom you have heard that he cometh, and he is now already in the world. [4] You are of God, little children, and have overcome him. Because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world.

[5] They are of the world: therefore of the world they speak, and the world heareth them. [6] We are of God. He that knoweth God, heareth us. He that is not of God, heareth us not. By this we know the spirit of truth, and the spirit of error.

 -- 1 John 4:1-6
"A Vatican II Pope" is the title of the editorial in America magazine introducing the pope's interview. In case you don't know America is a magazine of the Jesuits. It is nearly incomprehensible to me that the Jesuits have become the most liberal of all the major religious orders in the Church.

St. Ignatius of Loyola, pray for us.

In the days after the resignation of Ratzinger and before the election of Bergoglio I wrote...
Our last two popes both participated actively in the council and tried to steer the interpretation of the  council afterwards. What will be the relationship of the next pope to the council?

This will be one of the key questions that the next pope will need to answer early on in his papacy. And he will need to continually re-address this issue throughout his papacy, just as Benedict had to.
Well, Pope Francis has certainly "continually re-addressed" Vatican II since the very moment of his election.

The America magazine editorial says:
"[Francis] has been putting [the council’s basic message] into action by word and deed ever since his election."
In other words the documents of Vatican II are not important. What is important is "the council’s basic message" which is "the spirit of Vatican II".

Pope Benedict said:
"The hermeneutic of discontinuity risks ending in a split between the pre-conciliar Church and the post-conciliar Church. It asserts that the texts of the Council as such do not yet express the true spirit of the Council. It claims that they are the result of compromises in which, to reach unanimity, it was found necessary to keep and reconfirm many old things that are now pointless. However, the true spirit of the Council is not to be found in these compromises but instead in the impulses toward the new that are contained in the texts."
Pope Francis said:
"The council was a beautiful work of the Holy Spirit, but after 50 years, have we done everything the Holy Spirit in the council told us to do?" .... "There are voices saying we should go back. This is called being hard-headed, this is called wanting to domesticate the Holy Spirit, this is called becoming 'foolish and slow of heart.'"
I have my doubts as to the nature of the "spirit" of Vatican II. I'm convinced that it has very little if anything to do with the Holy Spirit.

Despite what others may say, Francis is driving a wedge through the Church. He is drawing a line between the pre-Vatican II and post-Vatican II Church.

If I have to choose, then there is no doubt that I choose the Church of Jesus Christ and the Apostles and the Fathers of the Church and the Saints and the Angels and the Blessed Virgin Mary.

Pray for the Pope and the Holy Catholic Church.

  1. I´m glad I found your blog.
    Since I read Malachi Martin´s "The Jesuits" I understand how they became the most liberal of all the religious orders.
    If I were an enemy of the Catholic Church I would try to infiltrate the best religious orders such as the Jesuits and the Dominicans. Some people have very sucessfully tried decades ago.
    Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!

  2. Hi Martina,

    Thanks for reading and thanks for your comment. It's a lonely world these days for orthodox Catholics with a love of the traditions of the Church.

    Just a warning about Malachi Martin. He is a dangerous character in my opinion. You should read this link about how he leaked information during Vatican II to the New York Press which had the effect of pressuring the Council to implement reforms with regards to ecumenism, etc.

    I have checked out this information and believe it to reflect the truth. If you have are interested in an example of how Vatican II played a large role in getting us into the current situation, then I would definitely recommend this article.:

    Just a warning that it is quite shocking if you truly love the Church. I had been planning to write an article about it, but I don't have as much time for writing these days as I would like. The article talks about M. Martin under his pseudonym Michael Serafian. (Michael the Archangel??? -- shouldn't it have been his adversary the evil one instead?)

    As for infiltration, the Holy Spirit must be communicating the same message to both of us because I was just thinking deeply about this today. All of these changes in Church doctrine could not possibly just have happened "spontaneously". Infiltration is a favorite tactic of certain socialist movements. It contrasts to the more blatant revolutionary socialist movements. Over time it achieves the same goal as a revolution. We have seen how it operates in the labor movement and in politics, and why not the Church as well?

    God bless you,

  3. Hi Martina,

    I visited your blog and see that it is in German. Are you from Germany? I only read a little bit of German, so I would have to use Google translate to figure the articles.

    It must have been quite an experience for you to have had a German pope. I know I was quite excited when Francis was elected because I am hispanic and speak Spanish. (I'm not so excited now. In fact I'm very sad and even fearful for the future.)

    I hope you don't mind my asking, what is your opinion of Benedict now after he resigned? I now feel the whole resignation was a betrayal and it has certainly thrown the whole Church into turmoil. Would you mind sharing your thoughts with me?

    Also, I'm involved in the secular Carmelites. You would not believe how unorthodox some of American Carmelite priests are. What would St. Teresa of Avila and St. John of the Cross think about all of this? After they sacrificed so much to establish the Discalced Carmelites.under the most orthodox teachings and practices.

    Yours in Carmel,

  4. Dear Michael, thank you for answering my short comment so lengthy (and excuse my poor English). I know that Malachi Martin is a dubious character but I think in the case of the Jesuits he is right because the facts we all can see – that Jesuits today have more in common with communists than with Catholics approve him in my opinion.
    Bella Dodd and other converts from communism told us decades ago about the successful infiltration.
    I have some old books from a German Bishop over the “Kirchenkampf” under the Nazi dictatorship and he said that Hitler had planned to infiltrate German seminaries with his people but then he decided not to do so.
    This is one of the books this Bishop - Johann Neuhäusler- published in 1941 to inform the Americans what was going on in Germany:
    I also purchased some old books published in the GDR, some of them were written in the Soviet Union. You would be surprised to read how detailed they had examined the hierarchical structure and the holy orders of Roman Catholic Church – their main enemy- and how it operates. I have no doubt that they used their knowledge about the church which surpassed by far that of most of the Catholics to destroy the Church in the West from within as they had already done in their communist territory. Did you read the biography of Cardinal Mindzenty? There you can learn how the communists raised “priests” of their own who worked for them and not for Christ.
    I will answer your second comment in the evening when I find time.
    Yes I´m German and my first prename is Carmen ;-)
    I´m a convert to the faith.
    God bless you.
    Yours in Christ

  5. Hello Carmen,

    Yes, I have read the the interview with Dr. Alice Von Hildebrand where she talks about Bella Dodd and the communist infiltration of the Church.

    Dr. Alice Von Hildebrand also has some very damaging information about Pope Paul VI. She is someone who is extremely knowledgeable and not someone that would openly discuss these things publicly unless she was convinced of the facts. I had read about Bella Dodd before that, but always had doubts until I saw it confirmed by her.

    Dr. Alice Von Hildebrand describes how her husband, Dr. Dietrich Von Hlidebrand burst into tears in 1965 when he realized "the devil had entered the Church". Just a few nights ago I had a similar experience. I was listening to Michael Voris interview Dr. John Rao who is a disciple of Dr. Hildebrand. Rao is an expert in Church history and he said this is the worst crisis in the history of the Church. I have felt that myself, but to have it confirmed by someone who has studied all the previous crisis -- that was devastating.

    The Dr Rao interview is here beginning at the 30 minute mark:
    (You may have to turn up the volume control)

    Thank ou for the other information and links.There is so much history and information about persecution of the Church in modern times that is suppressed and never talked about in the media or in the popular culture. I'm sure I don't have to tell you this.

    Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, ora pro nobis.


  6. I just read your blogposts from your first years. You are a convert, too! And you are the first Catholic to whom I do not have to explain what a transhumanist is!
    Do you know that Julian Huxley was the founder of UNESCO? Thanks to UN/UNESCO/UNDPH we in Germany will soon have a “third gender”.

    In my opinion GB will follow soon because nearly every week there is a transgender "couple" presented to the readers of the Daily Mail, for example:

    I didn´t have the time to read your the whole blog but I think this link may be what you search for to connect all the dots. It´s an lengthy interview with Randy Engel about a plan to change society and the Roman Catholic Church completly and irreversibly.
    Maybe you already know it.

  7. Hello Martina!

    This is very exciting. Yes of course I know that Julian Huxley was the founder of UNESCO. Yes, transhumanism ties into gay marriage, contraception, abortion... what am I missing? It's the Brave New World! It's the worship of the goddess of progress!

    It's the Omega Point and the technological singularity!

    All progress is progress towards the singularity! Control of human reproduction is one of the key goals -- although perhaps an intermediary one.

    Yes, we should discuss more. If you provide some contact information in a comment, I can keep it private since I am the only one with access to this blog and all comments are moderated.

    Actually, I had great hopes for Ratzinger because he has written about this topic in "Christianity and crisis of Cultures" and even in "Caritas in Veritate". Perhaps I was reading too much into some of his vague academic comments.

    I imagined that the Church with its great wisdom, with all its knowledge and experience and with the guidance of the Holy Spirit would understand profoundly and completely the attack that it is under -- which affects all of society and which is ultimately a spiritual battle.

    Let me tell you that I think we can trace this back to Galileo. I love science, but scientific advances must not be allowed to run free. Science must be at the service of Man in accordance with God's will. Ultimately that is what was at stake with case of Galileo.

    From there you have the protestant revolt, which is really the beginning of separating the Church form the State in order to ultimately declare the supremacy of the State and to crush the Church. The idea of personal salvation is completely protestant. The Catholic ideal is to convert the society and to proclaim Christ as King on earth as in Heaven. This was taken for granted in the time before the freemasons/humanists began to dominate the world after the French Revolution.

    We are the inheritors of a great Catholic civilization. And like the prodigal son we are wasting our inheritance on prostitutes and other filth. The inheritance is almost used up now…. will the son now return to the Father and beg for forgiveness?

    ¡Que viva Cristo Rey!

    St. Michael, ora pro nobis.


  8. Regarding that you imagined "the Church with its great wisdom, with all its knowledge and experience and with the guidance of the Holy Spirit would understand profoundly and completely the attack that it is under": The "problem" here is that every limb of the Mystical Body of Christ must consent to beeing guided by the Holy Spirit. The Holy Sprirt doesn´t force anybody and one can resist grace.
    Nevertheless is your concept true. You and me understand profoundly the attack the Church is under which affects all society. Everybody who wholeheartedly wants to understand this will understand it. The problem is that most people are not interested in such issues. In the last seven years I´ve tried to wake up as many as I could- alas in vain.

  9. Hello Martina,

    I think we can agree that there are so many public lies that are repeated so often in order to justify this satanic agenda, that most people are bound to be confused and not recognize the truth when they hear it. Because they hear it so rarely.

    The simplest example is the statement that "women and men are equal". Anyone with eyes can see that this statement is false. There is an obvious difference. One of the consequences of this particular lie is that women must be able to choose whether or not to become a mother under all circumstances. Because men never are "burdened" with motherhood. And if women are equal to men, then they should not be either. Therefore abortion -- the killing of babies in the womb -- must be legalized, etc.

    The lie leads to a murder which is declared legal under the law. The problem is that the lie that "women and men are equal" has been repeated so often that people actually believe its true even though it is blatantly false. And most people have accepted this as a "fact". It is hard to argue against "facts" even if they are "false facts".

    The social engineers are hard at work...

    The answer is prayer, and conversion of oneself first. A single person who truly follows Christ example -- a saint -- is a shining light simply by his or her mere existence. It is a miracle that anyone can become a saint when surrounded by so much evil.

    Yours in Christ,
