the-bishopsToday we pick up where we left off in yesterday’s post titled This Has Nothing To Do With Christian Unity… (see here).  In that post, we explained how the speech Francis gave on the 12th of September 2016, in which he identified and vilified those who he called “destroyers”, had very little if anything to do with their “actions”, whether real or imagined, as it related to the issue of “Christian Unity”.

What the vilification did have to do with, is Francis’ clandestine drive to find a new funding model for the post-Christian FrancisChurch.

What we will do today is extend examination of this FrancisProcess of finding this new FUNDING MODEL. This funding model in turn can only be implemented if Francis takes Catholicism into the ONE WORLD RELIGION. And this is exactly what Francis, the bishop of Rome has up his sleeve.

This we define as our base HYPOTHESIS.

The reason for the above inference is that the old funding model, i.e. the one instituted by the Catholic Church, one based on Our Lord’s teaching (alms giving and corporal Works of Mercy) and one that had been very effective until the Second Vatican Council, has not been working so well for the post-conciliar NUChurch. Actually, it’s a disaster.

Evidence of just this situation your humble blogger has provided in various posts starting with this one written in the early days of this blog (21 November 2014): Funding: The Transfer Window (see here). The most recent post supporting this INFERENCE has come by way of the excellent work being done in this area by Elizabeth Yore which appears on The Remnant website. Your humble blogger has re-published Mrs. Yore’s work in these two posts here and here.

Further evidence for the above FrancisChurch HYPOTHESIS was provided yesterday, referencing Sandro Magister’s blog. In that post (see here) we learn that the Vatican prelates understand the OBJECTIVE REALITY of going down the “liberal Protestant church” IDEOLOGY route. Here is the relevant text:  

(…) they (13 Cardinals) were warning him against leading the Catholic Church as well to “the collapse of liberal Protestant churches in the modern era, accelerated by their abandonment of key elements of Christian belief and practice in the name of pastoral adaptation:”

Further to the above, we have provided on this blog other information coming from the German Church that demonstrates that the liberal Protestant churches are disintegrating faster in Germany than the German Catholic Church. Here is that text from Markus Günther writing in the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, one of the largest and most reputable newspapers in Germany which cause a stir at the end of 2014 when it appeared (see here):

But why are the seekers no longer finding guidance? Why are the supply and demand no longer jibing? The most popular answer to this question is: because the Church is no longer relevant to the times. She must conform more closely to the realities of the lives of modern people. Initially, that sounds plausible, but under closer scrutiny reveals itself to be idiocy. For the Evangelical church in Germany has done nearly everything which is being demanded from the Catholic Church in order to become more relevant to the times: women priests, the elimination of celibacy, liberality in moral theology, the complete acceptance of homosexuals and the divorced. If these were the real reasons for the malaise of Christendom, the Protestants should be far better off than the Catholics. But that simply isn’t the case. A second error in thinking is introduced by the popular buzzword “relevant to the times” [German: zeitgemäß, which can mean “modern,” “suitable,” or even “appropriate,” and often carries all of these shades when applied to the Church]: Wherever the Church does not base herself upon timeless, incontrovertible truth, she reveals herself to be purely man-made. Political programs should be “relevant to the times,” entertainment programming, too; but a religion must take command of absolute truths – or it is no religion at all.

So in essence, when we are dealing with Francis, or the post-conciliar NUChurch in general, what we are in reality dealing with is a POLITICAL PROGRAM. And all concerned parties, whether it’s Francis, the German Episcopate or the Catholic prelates, know that going down the “liberal Protestant church” IDEOLOGY route is a non-starter. In terms of Church finances, that is.

So this has been the evidence provided by your humble blogger so far.

Adding to the above EVIDENCE, yesterday we obtained more information confirming our above defined HYPOTHESIS. In a speech at the UNITED NATIONS, Barrack Obama gave the game away. Here is how the agit/prop shop known as The Washington Post, in the article titled At U.N., Obama offers a defense of a liberal world order under siege reported this speech: (excuse the link but… see here): (emphasis added)

President Obama, in his final speech to the United Nations Tuesday, made an impassioned plea on behalf of a liberal world order that he admitted was under growing threat from wars in the Middle East and rising nationalism at home and in Europe.

Speaking to the U.N. General Assembly for the eighth and last time as president, Obama sought to rise above the conflicts of the moment and outline a future of international cooperation, stressing the importance of the global liberal institutions formed after World War II, including the United Nations.

Even though Obama never mentioned the term “liberal world order”  the WashPo authors had no trouble identifying what in fact Obama was referring to, and their lede and text made it through the WashPo editors.

The manner in which the above post ties into Francis and NUChurch, or rather FrancisChurch, is provided for us by another secular source, this time from the sub-set of human activity that is Economics. In a post titled Moving Toward A One World Government, A One World Economy And A One World Religion (see here), from the 18th of October 2015, the author Michael Snyder writes the following in his lede:

The global elite have never been closer to their goal of a united world.  Thanks to a series of interlocking treaties and international agreements, the governance of this planet is increasingly becoming globalized and centralized, but most people don’t seem alarmed by this at all.  In the past 30 days, we have seen some of the biggest steps toward a one world government, a one world economy and a one world religion that we have ever witnessed, but these events have sparked very little public discussion or debate.  So please share this article with as many people as you can.  We need to wake people up about this before it is too late.

As to the subject that interests us here, Mr. Snyder identified the movement toward a “ONE WORLD RELIGION”.

So now the question becomes: how does this fit Francis’ TRUE (HIDDEN) AGENDA?

Here is how Mr. Snyder, writing for the secular The Economic Collapse Blog fingers Francis as the key PLAYER regarding the movement toward the “one world religion”: (emphasis are the author’s)

What Pope Francis had to say at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in Manhattan has received very little coverage by the mainstream media, but it was exceedingly significant.  The following is how he began his address

I would like to express two sentiments for my Muslim brothers and sisters: Firstly, my greetings as they celebrate the feast of sacrifice. I would have wished my greeting to be warmer. My sentiments of closeness, my sentiments of closeness in the face of tragedy. The tragedy that they suffered in Mecca.

In this moment, I give assurances of my prayers. I unite myself with you all. A prayer to almighty god, all merciful.

He did not choose those words by accident.  In Islam, Allah is known as “the all-merciful one”.  If you doubt this, just do a Google search.

And this is not the first time Pope Francis has used such language.  For instance, the following comes from remarks that he made during his very first ecumenical meeting as Pope…

I then greet and cordially thank you all, dear friends belonging to other religious traditions; first of all the Muslims, who worship the one God, living and merciful, and call upon Him in prayer, and all of you. I really appreciate your presence: in it I see a tangible sign of the will to grow in mutual esteem and cooperation for the common good of humanity.

The Catholic Church is aware of the importance of promoting friendship and respect between men and women of different religious traditions – I wish to repeat this: promoting friendship and respect between men and women of different religious traditions – it also attests the valuable work that the Pontifical Council for interreligious dialogue performs.

Pope Francis clearly believes that Christians and Muslims worship the exact same God.  And so that helps to explain why he authorized “Islamic prayers and readings from the Quran” at the Vatican for the first time ever back in 2014.

Concluding, what we see  in the above text is the supporting EVIDENCE for a move toward a one world government, which includes a one world religion as one of its main components. The Economic Collapse Blog provides supporting EVIDENCE that Francis is driving this PROCESS.

Therefore, when we observe the “unusual” if not outright heretical behavior of Francis, the bishop of Rome, (see HERE and HERE) we need to view his behavior in this wider context. By limiting ourselves to the “theological ghetto” to which the neo-Modernists have consigned Catholicism, we are led to focus on ecclesiastical issues – internal Catholic or Catholic versus protestant, or Christian versus non-Christians, while missing the wider CONTEXT of that which is going on around us. So when a Francis comes along, a pontiff who has very little if any interest in doctrinal matters or the primary mission of the Catholic Church which is the salvation of souls, focusing rather on ecclesiastical matters in terms of their effect on POLITICS, the Catholic is at a loss for explanations.

Yet non-Catholics and bloggers whose main area of interest has nothing to do with the Catholic Church per se, are picking up these “anomalies” and identifying them. This work carried out by blogs such as the Economic Collapse, the Alt-Market.com and the Mises Institute to just name three, and websites like ZeroHedge that are disseminating their work, are researching, investigating and writing about this “strange” state of affairs that they are observing, which is emanating from behind the Sacred Vatican Walls.

We as Catholics in turn, would be foolish not to pay heed to that which these blogs are finding and publishing. In REALITY, what they are doing is what the Scholastics and the Thomist’s have always done, i.e. they are focusing on different sub-sets of the wider, comprehensive and exhaustive environment that is God’s creation.

What they are doing in FACT is nothing more than researching, investigating, writing and disseminating that knowledge that comes from our FIRST SOURCE of FAITH, namely: that known through “natural light of human reason from the things that are made”. (see here)

Going further, what they are explaining is what we call the 1st Principle of the LEX ARMATICUS, namely:

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.

And it is demonstratively obvious that going down the “sterile (…) more spinster than mother” “liberal Protestant church” IDEOLOGY route, Francis is heading straight for the above identified TRASH HEAP.

Furthermore, given this confirmation from the secular world, we as Catholics, including the laity, the clerics and the hierarchy would be foolish not to take advantage of their important efforts and contributions.

From what I have observed and have chronicled, the laity, especially the Catholic bloggers, has been speaking out about this move toward a ONE WORLD RELIGION. The clerics are beginning to speak up. (see here)

But what is really now needed is for the hierarchy to start taking a stand. What the Catholic Church needs right now is for the Bishops to start speaking out about this drive toward a ONE WORLD RELIGION.

And they need to speak up “before it is too late”.
