we ALL must be "popes"

we ALL must be "popes"

If there is no pope, then we ALL must be "popes"...

... not in a protestant sense... but in a Catholic sense...

+ + +

Effectively today we have a Church without a pope... this is unprecedented... but in some ways it is not unprecedented...

+ + +

It is not that the Chair of Peter is currently empty... it is currently occupied by one that is aptly described as an anti-pope... but he is also a non-pope...

... the Chair is occupied by one who is totally unworthy to be the successor of Peter... and indeed I have even described him as the successor of Judas...

... all this is true... but it is not the point that I want to make at this time...

+ + +

The sense in which the current situation is NOT unprecedented is this...

... in times past the Catholic world did not receive instantaneous daily reports regardingt the popes words and actions... this has only become possible in the "modern" world through the use of technology... by harnessing electro-magnetic waves... and using them in ever more sophisticated ways to link mankind through a web of communication... a nearly instantaneous web...

... combine this with a culture that has lost all sense of the eternal... that is living for the moment... and is obsessed with "what is happening now"... and that is controlled and manipulated by the agents of satan...

... the result is this "modern" world with its hedonistic and nihilistic culture... which offers an abundance of pleasures for the body... but eternal damnation for the soul... a faustian bargain...

+ + +

Could even a saint of a pope truly defend us -- each and every one of us -- from this ferocious diabolical attack...

... the more saintly the pope, the more the minions of evil will attack, deride and sneer at him... like a hissing serpent... a serpent the size of a sea monster... and evil beyond our imaginations...

... can you imagine the filthy "jokes" that would be offered to humiliate this saintly man by a cadre of celebrities and politicians and newsmen...

... and then re-published and re-transmitted via radio and tv and internet... until every living soul on the planet would be inundated by this filthy wave of diabolical hate and lies...

[... notice that with bergoglio... we have the opposite occurring... the media "stars" controlled by this satanical cabal cannot say enough good things about this pope...]

+ + +

In conclusion, my dear friends, we are utlimately responsible for the salvation of our own souls...

... the same "modern" technology that satan utilizes so well can also be used by the faithful to save ourselves... to educate ourselves and more importantly our souls about the saints... so that our souls will take on that same saintly character...

... save yourself... save your soul... save the souls of your children, your spouse... keep the holy flame of the resurrected Christ alive in your soul... keep His healing ointment on your lips... welcome His love into your heart... and His truth into your mind...

+ + +

Perhaps one day... once the present long-lasting seemingly endless crisis is over... once the children of God learn through their fatal mistakes that without God there is nothing... no life... no love... no freedom... no hope... no joy... no happiness... no salvation...

... perhaps... God willing... the Church will once again convert not just individuals, but whole societies to Christ... because ultimately this is what is required... a society built on the pillars of Christ...

... a society that will not only welcome, but fully embrace a pope-saint... that will lead us into a new golden age of Christianity...

+ + +

But until then... save what little you can... yourself, your family, perhaps your closest friend...

... and to do that you will need to be your own pope... but to do that you will need to train yourself to be a pope, by following the example of those popes that came before... those holy popes... those saintly popes... that fought with all their might against the evils of this "modern" world...

+ + +

Do not wait for a pope-saint for in this lifetime of ours this will not come to pass...

... you will need to become a saint yourself... and not just a saint... but a pope-saint...

  3. Excellent post. I agree we may wait for an eternity to have a truly good pope. So we do have to be the best we can spiritually on our own without looking to the current pope for guidance. But as to the power of the Internet, I don't see potential problems with regards to a "saintly" pope and the world using it against him. Most people are not Catholics or even Christians and are not interested in the pope. They use the Internet for porn, celebrity news, sports, and are only interested in the next new thing. So while at first the new pope will be a curiousity to them, it will quickly fade so that they can find their entertainment elsewhere. I think overall the Internet is a very useful tool to bring traditional Catholics together and organize resistance to Rome if need be. After all, Vatican II occurred pre-computer age and was a done deal by the time the folks in the pews caught wind of it. I love your Bergoglio jokes of the day. It's better to laugh than to cry! Thanks!
