I would urge all Catholics to read Mark Mallett's blog entry here and pray about it.

This is a Test

I WOKE up this morning with these words impressed on my mind: This is a Test. And then, something like this followed… THE TEST If you have lost your peace over anything happening in …

I'm not going to lie to myself and others to get people to feel better about Bergoglio-Francis. The most destructive anti-Catholic person upon Earth is the man who is our presumed pope, this "Francis".

Lord God ,you wright straight within crooked lines .give us good sheppards to lead and take care of the sheep , in this our of confusion

We don't have a Pope, however we do have an Anti- Pope & I truly believe the worst Anti-Pope ever . None the less God is in charge, all we have to do is trust in Jesus & keep praying for all humanity especially during these troubled times.

Watch the dearly departed Fr. Hesse’s video on the limits of obedience to bishops and popes. It can be found on Youtube. Made during the reign of John Paul II it is relevant today.

Archbishop Vigano of all the contemporary hierarchy has laid his body on the line for Christ. But Mark unbelievably and notably doesn’t quote him!!! Sad for you Mark.
Jeffrey Ade
I wonder why?
Just me
If I got started on that post, it would turn into a small novel. Such a liar and a deceiver that he is. I could not even finish reading it. And I tried twice.
Jeffrey Ade
I had similar feelings about it!
Just me
@Jeffrey Ade I am glad to see I am not the only one. I started to post my comment with only several of the first things he said. But it was getting too long.
Jeffrey Ade
@Just me I skimmed it. But for my tastes there were too many quotes from more recent sources. I tend to throw those things away with the bath water and adhere to more proven sources like Tradition. And why are you up so late anyway?
Just me
@Jeffrey Ade I have to say prayers. And I stay up till midnight to say my 3 Our Fathers as Our Holy Mother told us to do. So? Why are you up so late?
Just me
@Jeffrey Ade I am sure Christ never spoke to him. What I see and believe is that it was all his beliefs he pushes onto others. A real defender of bergoglio for one thing.

Although I find this item useful in the same manner I find a good examination of conscience useful for keeping me centered and focused, I also find the article replete with syllogistic errors, assumptions, circular (i.e. self-justifying) reasoning and quotes which are somewhat removed from a larger and far more complex context. One does not have to be one of Pope Francis' 'gossipers' or "…More
Although I find this item useful in the same manner I find a good examination of conscience useful for keeping me centered and focused, I also find the article replete with syllogistic errors, assumptions, circular (i.e. self-justifying) reasoning and quotes which are somewhat removed from a larger and far more complex context. One does not have to be one of Pope Francis' 'gossipers' or "coprophagia" types to have deep concerns over some of the pope's recorded responses, dogmatically flawed publications, and his over-riding of some of his saintly predecessors on significant theological issues. Therefore, it doesn't pass my personal 'litmus test' for not exercising my responsibility to assist in correcting a perceived error in my fellow believer, pope or otherwise. It was not the wise or elite who saw the emperor was naked; it was an innocent child.

Well said and totally understood, thank you for your insight.
Hound of Heaven
Thank you, Carlos; we should all be helping one another get to the place the Father has prepared for us.
Carlos Santos
Amen, and thank you for stating this. I actually agree with much of what you wrote when I consider it all. I posted this article because A, the church is in a dire state obviously (although we know that the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph!), and B, I have gone through the self imposed wringer myself so to speak. I've been guilty in the past of tossing insults in the pope's direction. Went …More
Amen, and thank you for stating this. I actually agree with much of what you wrote when I consider it all. I posted this article because A, the church is in a dire state obviously (although we know that the Immaculate Heart of Mary will triumph!), and B, I have gone through the self imposed wringer myself so to speak. I've been guilty in the past of tossing insults in the pope's direction. Went to confession for them... It's an easy slippery slope to find one's self on. I had to tune out a lot of the Catholic alternative media. I lean on my daily prayer life heavily instead which is far healthier than listening to talking heads trying to tell me what to think.

God bless! 🙏
Jeffrey Ade
I'm sanguine. I haven't lost my peace. That was an easy read!
Carlos Santos
Steady as a rock @Jeffrey Ade 🙏

@carlso Maybe, but we have a perennial magestarium, the catechism of the council of trent. Our Lady of Fatima! In many ways what Francis says or doesn't say really only impacts my personal life from the exterior. If we practice the Catholic Faith we adhere to the papacy regardless of who is installed. Our faith is timeless and unchanging. When Pope Francis or you or I are gone, our children will …More

@Alex A God uses all things for good. I honestly believe that what is going on in the church now is being used to sift the souls within it like wheat. I'm sorry if that's all you gleaned from the article, I'd hardly call it "woke". I'm no fan of Pope Francis, but judgement is not our task as lay people. It is incumbent on us to correct each other but not to condemn.
Alex A
The article implied that a Pope must be followed, no matter the degree of unworthiness of a given Pope. That in turn infers that there are, and never can be, bad popes. History has amply shown that to be a false premise. Secondly, my 'woke' retort should be viewed as a 'tongue in cheek' response to the author's style of conveying his message. 😉
Carlos Santos
@Alex A Ah, gotcha. That I agree with. Popes can be and have shown to be very sinful men at times. My own opinion is more in line with video I posted by I Miss Christendom.
Strong and Steadfast
That article is nearly 3 years old, and 3 very important years. I'm fairly certain even Mark Mallett's opinions have changed on the matter.
Carlos Santos
@Strong and Steadfast That is actually a great question. I'll try to find a contact for Mark and ask him precisely this. To what point are we lay people expected to be obedient? We try to be obedient to "the church" as a whole...follow the Magisterium, and the words of our Lord Himself.

I personally try to not be judgmental, as in calling certain prelates names. I pray for them. Behind every nun, priest, deacon, cardinal, etc is a demon that is trying to get them to slip up. I feel that it is incumbent on us to correct errors whilst not engaging in bomb throwing, hateful rhetoric, calumny, etc. It's God's calling to judge, not mine. I'm called to pray, so I do that fervently. Praing the Joyful Mysteries today at lunch, I was fixated on the presentation in the temple. The fruit of that mystery is obedience. At my cathedral, the stained glass on the St. Joseph side of the church is the Joyful mysteries, so I knelt there doing my Rosary and just staring at the gorgeous rendition and thinking about how obedient Jesus was.

I have a feeling that a great schism is coming based on what the skittles mafia wants. Our Lady has said as much, piecing together things from various apparitions.

God cannot and will not bless sin, that is the truth we have to defend. I will work to help correct others that are misled without condemning them, because that then is where a lot would fall into sin ourselves.

Woke is the operative word of the above article.
