Couldn’t pass up this one today, folks.

As we are heading toward another attempt to “change the post-conciliar church” teaching on the intrinsically disordered, I decided to do this post in order to get all my dear readers to start thinking.

I am also putting this up because of the post I read on one of the mainline Catholic blogs reminding the faithful about the fate of Honorius I.

Yes, the dots are beginning to be connected and a future council – Council of Econe has a good ring to it, will be needed to clean up this FrancisMess. So I decided to start sorting out the trash, so that when the time comes, we can throw it in the proper recycling bin.

Now to the matter at hand…

As my loyal and long time readers know, your humble blogger does not agree with the diagnosis that all the current problems with Western Society and specifically the Catholic Church is due to the heresy of Modernism.

Or at least, the manner in which the heresy of Modernism was defined in the Papal Encyclical on the Doctrines of the Modernists, i.e. Pascendi Dominici Gregis

I have begun making my case in the post titled A Genuine Post-Modernist Bishop Of Rome. Please consider this a continuation of this thread.

Now, I know what most of you are thinking…

And don’t panic, so please come back off the ledge…

Your humble blogger has not gone rouge, nor has he lost his ONE TRUE FAITH.

What your humble blogger has come to realize, through long periods of reflection, meditation and discernment, while writing this blog I should add, is that the ROOT CAUSE of the current cultural war that is raging within, and destroying the post-Conciliar church is,… wait for it…. on account of the rebellion against Modernism.

Or to put it another way, the FrancisChurch has completely rejected Modernism!

To be more precise, FrancisChurch’s IDEOLOGY has completely rejected the neo-Modernist (crypto-Modernist) IDEOLOGY of the post-conciliar church.


Shocking…. you might say….


Got a better explanation for the FrancisChurch assault on Familiaris Consortio?

Didn’t think so…

So what does the above mean?

Simply, the above means that when Francis says that he is NOT A MODERNIST, he is making an OBJECTIVELY TRUE STATEMENT.

And one which the future Council of Econe will no doubt corroborate.

You heard it here first…

What Francis, the bishop of Rome isn’t telling you though, is that he is in fact a POST-MODERNIST.

Now this might appear to be a trivial point, you might say…

You also might ask: Would not the Modernist Heresy, or the heresy that is a synthesis of all heresies, include the post-Modernists?

And didn’t Pope St. Pius X write this in his historic Encyclical:

39. It may be, Venerable Brethren, that some may think We have dwelt too long on this exposition of the doctrines of the Modernists. But it was necessary, both in order to refute their customary charge that We do not understand their ideas, and to show that their system does not consist in scattered and unconnected theories but in a perfectly organised body, all the parts of which are solidly joined so that it is not possible to admit one without admitting all. For this reason, too, We have had to give this exposition a somewhat didactic form and not to shrink from employing certain uncouth terms in use among the Modernists. And now, can anybody who takes a survey of the whole system be surprised that We should define it as the synthesis of all heresies? Were one to attempt the task of collecting together all the errors that have been broached against the faith and to concentrate the sap and substance of them all into one, he could not better succeed than the Modernists have done. Nay, they have done more than this, for, as we have already intimated, their system means the destruction not of the Catholic religion alone but of all religion. With good reason do the rationalists applaud them, for the most sincere and the frankest among the rationalists warmly welcome the modernists as their most valuable allies.

Given the above, how can a Catholic, namely your humble blogger, make the above statement then?

The reason is a technical one.

But one that is of the utmost importance.

What needs to be understood is that post-Modernism IS NOT a part of Modernism, i.e.  a part of the heresy of Modernism.

Shocking observation… yes?

Well, not if you think it through.

What post-Modernism in fact is, is the negative case to Modernism. Post-Modernism is in fact the negation of Modernism.

Maybe this is an unconscious factor in Francis’ “affinity” for the SSPX? Enemy of my enemy… as the expression goes. But I digress…

But instead of making a positive case for the refutation of Modernism, post-Modernism goes FULL OUT NIHILIST. And I don’t mean just a little NIHILIST.

And just to provide a brief definition: (see here)

Nihilism -is a philosophical doctrine that suggests the lack of belief in one or more reputedly meaningful aspects of life.

What post-Modernism in fact is, is the NIHILISTIC BELIEF SYSTEM that make the claim that there are no meaningful aspects of life.

And just in case you dear reader need an independent, corroborating fact to support the above HYPOTHESIS, I refer you back to Pascendi Dominici Gregis. Please observe that the term NIHILISM does not appear once in this Papal Encyclical.

Don’t take my word for it. Please go to the link above, clink on the search function and start typing NIHILISM.

What you will find is that the field goes red after you type the third letter I in NIHILI

And why might this be, you ask?

Well, most likely because St. Pope Pius X was an very well formed and highly educated man, as were the men around him. He distinguished the difference between the state of the existence of something and its lack of existence.

Case in point, EVIL being the lack of the existence of GOOD.


Now, getting back to the technical point raised earlier.

The reason one cannot make the claim that Francis is a Modernist is that Francis rejects Modernism.

The reason Francis rejects Modenism isn’t based on his Catholic Faith, which contains a positive refutation of Modernism, e.g. Pascendi Dominici Gregis.

No siree…

The basis upon which Francis rejects Modenism is through his post-Modernist IDEOLOGY. 

What Francis is saying in fact is that there are no TRANSCENDENTAL OBJECTIVE “meaningful”, read GOOD aspects of life. 

Let that sink in….

And by using the term “meaningful”, we are speaking of the GOOD, TRUE aspects of life that our Catholic Faith defines.

And how can we be certain that the above is in fact a OBJECTIVELY CORRECT observation?

The manner in which we can be certain is by observing that in his various speeches, conversations, interviews, musings at the Domus Saencte Maerta, and other off the cuff comments of Francis, i.e the Francis “magisterium”Francis questions… wait for it…. still waiting…. Francis questions…


… Catholic Church magisterial teaching. In one form or another.

Except for that part of the Magisterium he needs in order to keep him in the seat of the bishop of Rome, naturally.

Now think about this for a minute or two.

Having read the above, please go to the top of the page and watch (re-watch) the short Stephen Hicks video and meditate on the CONTENT and how it relates to Francis, the bishop of Rome.

Doesn’t it explain Francis to a “T”?
