Bergoglio's false Fatima consecration

"When any one heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, there cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart: this is he that received the seed by the way side."
 -- Gospel According to Saint Matthew 13:19
In what I can only imagine to be a pre-written headline, Catholic News Agency says, "Pope entrusts world to Immaculate Heart of Mary". Back in August the headline from CNA was, "Pope to consecrate world to Mary's Immaculate Heart".

However, in Bergoglio's statements today I have found not a mention of Our Lady's Immaculate Heart. Nor does he use the word "consecrate". He doesn't mention Fatima. He doesn't mention Blessed Jacinta or Francisco or Sister Lucia.

Instead we have a rehash of Bergoglio's "church of the poor" theme in a statement that sounds like it would be much more appropriate at an anniversary dedicated to the masonic Statue of Liberty than to Our Lady of Fatima.

Bergoglo's statement includes the following:
"Teach us your same love and preference for the young and the poor, the marginalized and the suffering, for sinners and those whose hearts are lost: gather all under your protection and deliver us all to your beloved Son , our Lord Jesus"
Compare that with the poem engraved on the masonic Statue of Liberty:
"Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!"
Our Lady of Fatima's message was not about the poor .  She asked the pope to...
"consecrate the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, with a special mention for Russia, and order that all the Bishops of the world do the same in union with Your Holiness."
I don't know how you do this without ever mentioning Her Immaculate Heart. Who is Bergoglio trying to fool?

Our Lady told the children at Fatima...
"You have seen hell where the souls of poor sinners go. To save them, God wishes to establish in the world devotion to My Immaculate Heart. If what I say to you is done, many souls will be saved and there will be peace."
Bergoglio makes a mockery of Our Lady's message. May God have mercy on him.

He makes it sound like all sinners are automatically going to Heaven because God in his mercy wold never condemn them to hell. But the message of Fatima is that for each of us hell is our ultimate destiny unless we surrender to God's will.
May our most loving Mother be pleased to look with clemency also upon those who are organizing the ranks of militant atheists and upon those who are collaborating in promoting such activities; may she deign to obtain for their minds that light which comes from God and direct their hearts through divine grace unto salvation.
 -- Apostolic Letter Carissimis Russiae Populis (1952) "On the Immaculate Heart and the People of Russia" Pius XII


  1. Thank you, Michael. I couldn´t stand watching the "consecration" yesterday.
    ""Teach us your same love and preference for the young and the poor, the marginalized and the suffering,"Where did he get this from? I never read this in an old Marian book and I´ve read several including The Glories of Mary from the Doctor of the Church St. Alphonsus de Liguori.

    For me it becomes clearer with every day passing that he is indeed the good pupil of his teachers the liberation theologians Lucio Gera and Juan Carlos Scannone SJ. They were so smart to call their new gospel a liberation theology without marxist roots. There is no such thing a a liberation theology without marxist roots. Not to mention Marx doesn´t mean it has no roots in Marxism.
    The NCR has even made a cartoon about Francis freeing liberation theology.

    Our Lady of Fatima, pray for us!
    Blessed Jacinta and Francisco Marto, pray for us!

  2. From an interview with Leonardo Boff:

    Question: Francis has shown his deep devotion to the Virgin Mary and the importance he attributes to popular piety. These are not really aspects that are close to liberals’ hearts…
    Boff: “Oh but they are. They are closely linked to Liberation Theology. In Argentina this developed especially as a people’s theology, developed by the Jesuit Juan Carlos Scannone, who taught Bergoglio. The Pope is close to this theological thinking. It is not to do with popular pietistic devotion but with a devotion that preserves people’s identity and strives for social justice.”

  3. Hi Martina,

    Thank you for your comments. I was afraid that perhaps the articles I quoted did not contain the complete text of the statements by Bergoglio. But you said that you actually watched it.

    Also, his devotion to Mary seemed to be a sign of good in Bergoglio. Perhaps what Boff is saying (in the quote you provide) is that devotion to Mary is understood in liberation theology as the way the working classes practice their Catholic faith. And in order to reach to the working class and spread their Marxist ideas, they hypocritically adopt a devotion to Mary so as to appear to be "in solidarity" with the "poor masses".

    If this is true than these liberation theologists are being totally cynical. They are simply using the Mother of God in order to further their atheistic Marxist agenda.

    And these are Catholic priests. What a diabolical disorientation! Isn't this exactly what Sister Lucia warned us about?

    God bless you,

  4. Hello Michael,
    did I say this? No, I didn´t watch it, What I intended to say was, I never planned watching it because I knew beforehand that I couldn´t endure it:.. please excuse my really bad English. But I googled after the complete prayer ( with video) and your quote is correct.
    It was obviously no consecration at all only an "act of entrustement".
    I´m really speechless. And for this the statue of the Mother of God had to be brought to the Pope from Portugal.

    I think you got the liberation theologists right. A few month ago when I first read about what Boff said about J.C. Scannone´s "theology of the people" I wrote exactly your words to a Catholic friend: "They are simply using the Mother of God."
    Today I read on a German Catholic website a comment who said this, too.

    If you want to read about Scannone SJ in his own words, here´s a link. (You understand Portuguese, don´t you?)
    I can only have a guess what he said there because the google translation into German is really bad. But some time ago I´ve purchased two of his books in German (he speaks German, too), so I know the basics of his "theology".

    God bless you!

  5. Hello Martina,

    Thank you again for your comments and the links you provided.

    I'm still reading the interview with Father Scannone -- Bergoglio's Jesuit teacher. This interview is from May 27, but already Scannone was able to "predict" the path that Bergoglio's papacy would take. It seems to me that Scannone is very familiar with the blueprint, since he is one of the chief architects.

    He talks about "the church of the poor", ecumenism, etc. One thing that is striking is he talks about a 3-way dialogue between the Church, Judaism and Islam. He says this will be similar to what Bergoglio had done in Argentina.

    The number one problem with such super-ecumenism -- which is not ecumenism at all because it extends beyond Christian churches -- is that it requires an emphasis on "common ground". This in turn requires a de-emphasis of anything that is not "common ground" -- for example that Christ is the Son of God.... and the Trinity -- Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

    And this is exactly what is becoming clear in Bergoglio's teachings. He is closer to the Jews or Muslims in his concept of God than to Catholics or even to other Christians. He could be called at once "the first Jewish Pope" and "the first Muslim Pope". Either one of those would be astonishing, but the combination is beyond astonishing. It boggles the mind. It is truly “incredible”.

    And yet the Catholic establishment press defends Bergoglio’s every word. I saw an article on Al Kresta’s site that seemed to be saying that it is good that Bergoglio is saying bad things and that this is getting great publicity, because that gives us a chance to discuss these things in public.

    So according to this ridiculous argument “good is bad”. What is the point in going to such extremes to defend Bergoglio? Must we become Catholic contortionists in order to make excuses for this poor excuse of a pope?

    Yesterday I talked to a lady at my Church who is totally convinced by these arguments. Of course she wants to believe that the pope is not in error. But this is not the reality.

    Please pray a Hail Mary for me.

    Yours in Christ,

  6. Michael: Thank you so much this post. You are helping all of us to realize we are not crazy when we question the motives of this 'bishop of Rome.' In fact, I have on my website, a new 'cross' he venerated while at WYD in Rio. Here is the link if you wish:

    I'm afraid we are in for quite a roller-coaster ride with this man who is a modernist using Our Lady to look orthodox. His suppression of the Latin Mass by the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculata is not a good sign.
    May the Lord act quickly against those who use His Mother's honor to downgrade the Glory of His Church.
    I have prayed an Ave Maria for you. Please pray one for me.

  7. Hi Steve,

    Thank you for your prayers. I have prayed an Ave Maria for you also. God finds good in all things when we have faith. What can be more good for the Church than if we pray for each other?


    Yours in Christ,
