Che Quote

Yesterday we finished with our thread dedicated to the post written by a very wise, knowledgeable, and highly influential cleric, writing under the pen name of don Pio Pace which appeared recently on the Rorate Caeli blog (see here). We examined and analyzed the information (DATA POINTS) contained in this essay, since the information contained can… make that “should” be viewed as a snap shot of the psychological disposition and morale of the “opposition” forces engaged in this epic struggle with Francis for control over the INSTITUTIONAL CHURCH.

We concluded our discussion of the above mentioned thread with reference to another post that appeared at the Rorate Caeli blog detailing the continuingly low number of visitors/pilgrims that the FRANCISEVENT known as the Jubilee Year of FRANICSMERCY is attracting to Rome proper, to the Vatican and major Roman basilicas (see here). In one word, it is a…


Given the above, and given our understanding of the LEX ARMATICUS, I have decided to look around the wider part of God’s creation to see how the other “neo-modernist” experiments are progressing.

Just as a reminder, LEX ARMATICUS, or to be more precise, its FIRST PRINCIPLE states that:

Those individuals and institutions that comply to the et Invisibilium, will remain a part of the Visibisium Omnium. Those that do not, will be consigned to the trash heap of history.

Our first stop must be the neo-modernist experiment that is taking place on Francis’ homeland continent in that “worker’s paradise” known as Venezuela. The last time we checked in, we found the local “ungrateful plebs” taking matters into their own hands. Here is what was written:

Last month we reported that citizens in Venezuela had finally become so desperate for food that angry mobs flooded the streets and looted all of the supermarkets that were rumored to still have anything left on their shelves.

As for the Francis and his position on “the poor”, in his personal “teaching” document otherwise known as Evangelii Gaudium, (see here) which Card. Burke still doesn’t know what to make of, paragraph 197 to 201 constitute the section titled: The special place of the poor in God’s people, here is what is written:

Our commitment does not consist exclusively in activities or programmes of promotion and assistance; what the Holy Spirit mobilizes is not an unruly activism, but above all an attentiveness which considers the other “in a certain sense as one with ourselves”.[166] This loving attentiveness is the beginning of a true concern for their person which inspires me effectively to seek their good.

And how is this loving attentiveness “not consist exclusively in activities or programmes of promotion and assistance” administered on a daily basis? For the answer to that question, we go over the MondayVatican blog and a post titled Pope Francis to the United Nations: Which Diplomacy? (see here). In this post, we read the following:

The language of the Holy See, on the other hand, tends to balance the straightforward, and sometimes contradictory statements of Pope Francis. The Secretariat of State, lead by Cardinal Pietro Parolin, is grounded mostly in prudence. Cardinal Parolin always speaks about the need to carry forward a dialogue with every party. Diplomatic prudence is therefore his watchword.

And with respect to Venezuela, we read the following:

Nor did the Holy See intervene in the Venezuelan crisis. It also practiced prudence in its approach to the “Caliphate” and Islamic State. The diplomacy of truth (Benedict’s diplomatic approach), with its strong and definitive condemnation, was left to the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, while the Secretariat of State kept on urging dialogue.

Oh well. It appears that the Venezuelan “the poor” do not “subsist” in the FRANCISPOOR.

As to the latest news from Venezuela, according to the website GlobalPost, in an article titled Venezuelans barter diapers for food on smartphones (see here), we read the following:

A kilo of pasta gets you a packet of diapers. A bag of flour buys a bottle of shampoo.

Short on basic supplies, Venezuelans have reverted to ancient shopping habits: bartering whatever they have.

But the tools of the trade are right out of the 21st century: WhatsApp, Facebook and Instagram.

With food and toiletries in ever shorter supply, their smartphones are helping them survive.

What we can observe is that the progressive neo-modernist experiment that is taking place in the South American country of Venezuela has “advanced” the local economy to a state not seen since the advent of the medium of exchange commonly referred to as a “currency”, i.e. circa 15,000 BC.

But  not all news from the South American continent is “good” news. In Francis’ homeland and the neo-modernist experiment known as Kirchnerism, i.e. neo-Peronism, has come to a temporary halt. In the last election, the “less neo-modernist” politician, one Mauricio Macri won the last general election (see here). Therefore, Francis’ hopes to “usher in the second coming of Peronism” were dashed. (see here)

It would appear that desperate times call for desperate measures and as this blog has observed on numerous occasions, even neo-modernists need to eat. Combining these two “loose” general principles, we have come across a story that demonstrates to what extent the Argentine neo-modernists will go to to survive this down period. Over at the Bloomberg website, in a story titled Kirchner Official Caught Burying Millions Outside Convent (see here) we can read the following:

The former No. 2 at Argentina’s Public Works Ministry was arrested after he was caught burying bags containing millions of dollars in cash in the grounds of a convent near Buenos Aires.

Once agian, allow me to restate for the record: Even neo-modernist’s need to eat.

Actually, let us elevate this oft repeated observation and define it as the second principle of the LEX ARMATICUS.

Given the above, one obvious lesson can be drawn. That lesson is as follows: the manner in which a neo-modernist can “guarentee” not to run afoul of the Second Principle of the LEX ARMATICUS, i.e. that he (and his friends, like the former No. 2 at Argentina’s Public Works Ministry) not find himself in a position where he would not have the means to feed himself is to “not lose” an election.

And in keeping with the above expanded LEX ARMATICUS, it would appear that this lesson has been learned.

Over at the MondayVatican website, in a post titled Pope Francis’ Reform in Progress, (see here) we can read the following:

This is what Cardinals advising the Pope are for, and this is what the Pope is putting into action through curial reform. But this reform represents only a minimum part of Pope Francis’ idea of Church. He is more interested in reforming the profile of bishops, than the Curia. He mostly aims at picking bishops with the smell of the sheep rather than bishops intellectually well founded. And this is what he is doing in the College of Cardinals. He is redesigning it according to the rationale that the universal Church should be more represented. True, the Pope will not take the red hat away from dioceses and offices which by tradition are assigned to a cardinal; nevertheless, it is very likely that he will raise the number of cardinals eligible to vote in a conclave from 120 to 140, perhaps in the upcoming consistory.

Concluding, we can see from the above text that the neo-modernist’s are not going down without a fight. Just because their neo-modernist IDEOLOGY is creating destruction and human misery on a massive scale, this does not mean that they will give up their positions of power and privalege voluntarily.  It is also obvious that Francis has decided to not fall afoul of the George Bernard Shaw observation, i.e.

“We learn from history that we learn nothing from history.

Francis has learned from history, or at least he has learned this one lesson. And if the OLD GUARD wants to regain control over the INSTITUTION that is the Universal Church, it is going to have to start getting serious. Because Francis is…

fighting for the things he believes in, with all the weapons at this disposal…

And his best weapon at present is: STACKING THE DECK.
