The answer to this question is found in the 26th Chapter of St. Matthew’ Gospel:
“[31] Then Jesus said to them: All you shall be scandalized in me this night. For it is written: I will strike the shepherd, and the sheep of the flock shall be dispersed. [32] But after I shall be risen again, I will go before you into Galilee. [33] And Peter answering, said to him: Although all shall be scandalized in thee, I will never be scandalized. [34] Jesus said to him: Amen I say to thee, that in this night before the cock crow, thou wilt deny me thrice. [35] Peter saith to him: Yea, though I should die with thee, I will not deny thee. And in like manner said all the disciples.”

Has the current Shepherd been struck? He seems to have been struck with ideas and concepts totally foreign to the perennial magisterium of the 2000 yr old history of Church teaching. Has the flock been scattered? It would be hard to argue otherwise. Sometimes history repeats itself. Will we deny him thrice as did Peter? Absolutely not! Either Jesus Christ is the 2nd Person of the Blessed Trinity and the Son of the Almighty God or He is an impostor. It’s really that simple and what Jesus taught us by Revelation to His disciples we will retain, regardless of what Jorge or the laughing hyena from the hierarchy has to say at the moment.

  1. Yes, the shepherd has been struck with blindness, along with his recent predecessors. It’s a grave punishment for the sins of Catholics who proudly declare they know better than their predecessors. Blindness is the worst punishment, leaving the flock to wander ever deeper into the pit. Some have been shouting the warning from the housetops, but to no avail. We offer them a sign and hope, and they curse us.

    It’s impossible to see, from our perspective, how the good God could permit these evil men to be Pontiff. I, for one, can’t see that they have the Faith, and thus how they could be the Rock of our Faith. However, Our Lord has done it, and His thoughts are above our thoughts; He sees what we can’t. Hence, we hold onto His promises and remain in His flock.
