Pope Bergoglio is the “hermeneutic of discontinuity,” and the living breathing incarnation of the “dictatorship of relativism.”

The Avvenire interview has not gotten the attention it deserves. There has been so much written on the Four Cardinals letter, the Pope’s ignoring of it, and the consistory, that much in this recent interview has gone unnoticed. It is important unpack it and using the help of computer translation, we can look at some of the more concerning quotes.

There is something to be said for the imprudence of the Vicar of Christ willingly submitting himself to secular media opinion makers and journalists. It should simply not be done. Not on an aeroplane, not anywhere. It belittles the Office of the the Papacy, it reduces it and the Pope to just another political leader. It confuses the people as to what is and what is not, Magisterial. The Pope’s talks to media along with his the Tweets of his sycophants do not equate with Magisterial teaching. They do, however, reveal much else.

Whether this was the actual order the questions were asked by the reporter or her and the editor’s construction, we do not know, but right out of the gate, Bergoglio talks about, the “spirit.” When asked about the “Holy Year,” he states:

“The Jubilee? I have not made a plan. Things have come. Simply let myself be lead by the Spirit. The Church is the Gospel, it is not a path of ideas. This year on mercy is a process developed over time, from the Council … Also in the ecumenical field the path comes from afar, with the steps of my predecessors. This is the journey of the Church. It’s not me. I have not given any acceleration. To the extent that we move forward, the path seems to go faster, is the motus in fine velocior “.

He speaks much of the “spirit.” I categorise this with his “god of surprises,” and neither of them are Holy. Since the advent of the so-called “charismatic” movement (something this writer views as a fraud), Catholics have fallen for this idea that the Holy Spirit is guiding every step they make and every thought and decision. These suffer the same delusion that the Holy Spirit actually elects the Pope. Therefore, we must conclude, that every odour emanating from the Bishop of Rome, whomever he is, must smell like frankincense. The reality is the very opposite. Everything must be tested. From the moment this man came out on the loggia that dark March evening, he has been a scandal to the Faith, that very night, the next day refusing to bless the gathered media, the witnessing of him refusing to genuflect at Holy Mass but grovelling to wash the feet of anyone but a priest on Holy Thursday. We have his continual insults to faithful Catholics from “self-absorbed, promethean, neo-Pelagians” to “breeding like rabbits,” and more recently, “rigid” people trying to “hide something,” these are not from a spirit that is holy. The set-up of Kasper nearly three years ago putting forward this horror we have witnessed at the two Synods and now the heretical Amoris Laetitia. This “god of surprises,” is not the Triune God of Heaven and Earth.

Bergoglio reveals in that first line above that he has no plan, he is irrational and goes with whatever comes into his mind, interpreting it as divinely inspired. He states that it is not him but the Council and that he is not speeding things up.

“Making the experience of forgiveness that embraces the whole human family is the grace that the apostolic ministry announces. The Church exists only as a tool to communicate to people the merciful plan of God. At the Council the Church felt the responsibility of being in the world as a living sign of the love of the Father, with the ascent of Lumen Gentium to the sources of his nature, to the Gospel. This moves the axis of the Christian conception of a certain legalism, which can be ideological, the Personality of Godhead who became the incarnation of the Son’s mercy. Some – think of certain replies to Amoris laetitia – still do not understand, it is either white or black, in the flow of life that you have to discern. The Council has told us this, historians say, however, that a Council, to be absorbed well by the body of the Church, needs a century, we are half a century.”

Frankly, he is deluding Catholics and himself. The Council is once again being manipulated. As ambiguous as the documents of the Second Vatican Council can be, nowhere can one find the justification for what is contained in Amoris Laetitia. If he believes this, he is either deluded himself, or he is lying to further his own goals, let by something he believes to be the Holy Spirit. This is simply blasphemy to hold the idea that God is responsible for heresy, error and confusion. If one holds that there are truths then one is a “legalist”and sees only “black and white.” This Pope is the embodiment of the “dictatorship of relativism,” spoken of by Joseph Ratzinger immediately prior to his election as Pope. Bergoglio is the living, “hermeneutic of discontinuity and rupture” warned about by the man who left us to it and who is now his successor’s prisoner.”

“It is the journey from the Council which goes on, intensified. But it is the journey, not me. This path is the path of the Church. I have met with the primates and leaders, it is true, but also the rest of my predecessors have done their encounters with these or other responsible. I have not given any acceleration. To the extent that we go on the road seems to go faster, is the motus in fine velocior, to put it according to that process expressed in the Aristotelian physics.”

This is the second time he talks about “acceleration” but then tries to explain that it is not’ him doing it, Again, we are left to conclude that it is this “spirit” and this “god of surprises,” that is directly him.

Archbishop Victor Emmanuel Fernandez, the author of the book, Heal Me With Your Mouth. The Art of Kissing,” because he would know, revealed the Bergoglian/Gallen Mafia plan in, La Croix:

“The pope must have his reasons, because he knows very well what he’s doing. He must have an objective that we don’t understand yet. You have to realize that he is aiming at a reform that is irreversible. If one day he should intuit that he’s running out of time and he doesn’t have enough time to do what the Spirit is asking him, you can be sure he will speed up.”

Archbishop Fernandez, affectionately known as “Tucho,” is the ghostwriter behind the Lutheranesque Evangelii Gaudium, the Soros inspired Laudato Si and the heretical Amoris Laetitia. Clearly, Francis needs to find new friends. There is no “turning back” according to Fernandez. “Francis is stronger than adversaries inside the Curia.

“Later, Bergoglio is asked to comment that “some people think that in these ecumenical meetings you want to “sell out” Catholic doctrine. Someone once said that you want to “protestantise,” the Church … ”

“I do not lose my sleep from this. I continue on the road of those who have preceded me, I follow the council. As for opinions, we must always distinguish the spirit in which they are spoken. When there is not an evil spirit, they also help to walk. Other times you see right away that they take criticism here and there to justify an already taken place, they are not honest, are made with evil spirit to foment division. We see immediately that certain rigors stem from a lack, from wanting to hide inside their armor of sad dissatisfaction. If you watch the movie Babette’s Feast is this rigid behavior.”

That’s right. Catholics who hold to the faith, and I am talking about every day, John and Mary Catholics attending the regular diocesan parish, who struggle to raise their families, and remain faithful – they go to Mass, the Sacraments – these are people concerned about what is happening to their Holy Mother, the Church, and this man calls states that they are out do “foment division.” The proverbial, pot, calling the kettle, black.

Again, as in the insults last week to young Catholics attending the traditional Mass, Bergoglio puts on his psychiatrist cap and explains away honest concern as nothing more than “rigid behaviour,” from those “want to hide inside their armour of sad dissatisfaction.”

As for Babette’s Feast, what the heck he is he talking about and why is recommending a movie and why would I take his cinematic critique seriously any more than anything else he has to say?

On a personal note, his comments are very revealing to me. In the two years leading up to the vexatious and frivolous attempt by Father Thomas J. Rosica, to sue this writer, I received over a dozen email communications from him. The tone of Bergoglio and the style of insult is near identical to those of Rosica. It is either that Rosica is whispering in his ear or more likely, it is a matter to do with their formation. What was happening the seminaries between 1960 and 1990 when these men were educated and formed for priesthood that caused them to think of Catholics in such ways? What is this pathology that turns them into amateur psychoanalysts rather than missionaries of Christ? Why did these men every become priests and why did any bishop ordain either of these men?

Remember well, what this Tom Rosica wrote and stated publicly many times:

“Will this Pope re-write controversial Church doctrines? No. But that isn’t how doctrine changes. Doctrine changes when pastoral contexts shift and new insights emerge such that particularly doctrinal formulations no longer mediate the saving message of God’s transforming love. Doctrine changes when the Church has leaders and teachers who are not afraid to take note of new contexts and emerging insights. It changes when the Church has pastors who do what Francis has been insisting: leave the securities of your chanceries, of your rectories, of your safe places, of your episcopal residences go set aside the small minded rules that often keep you locked up and shielded from the world.”

The interview then winds its way towards Lund and ecumenism.

“Walking and working together, we realize that we are already united in the name of the Lord, and then the unity is not that which we create ourselves. We realize that it is the Spirit who impels us and carries. If you are docile to the Spirit, He will tell you what you can do, the rest is done by Him. (poorly translated – You can not go back to Christ if you will not take you if you do not push the Spirit with his strength. For this is the Spirit the author of Christian unity.) That’s why I say that the unit is on the way, because unity is a grace that you have to ask, and also because I repeat that every proselytizing among Christians is sinful. The Church never grows for proselytizing but “by attraction,” as Benedict XVI wrote. The proselytizing among Christians therefore is in itself a grave sin. … because it contradicts the very dynamics of how to become and remain Christian. The Church is not a football team that seeks fans.”

It is the laity, mostly through blogs, that have been at the forefront of exposition of the errors of Jorge Bergoglio and his Papacy. As a Catholic, it is not an easy thing to bear what he says and does. It is even less easy to come here and publicly challenge the Bishop of Rome, the Pope, the very Vicar of Christ. Yet, how can one not? How can one sit idly by, whilst this man and those around him, tear apart the very Church through which we were given the very grace to see.

A few days ago, a woman whom I have known for a number of years saw for herself what was happening and what was being said. She is a faithful woman, a good Catholic. Not a “traditionalist” in the sense of the Rite as she is part of a regular diocesan parish, but certainly a traditionalist in faith and morality, devotion and practice. She would be of the generation of this writer, a child coming to age in the great dawn of Vatican II; conflicted between that which we were taught and saw as young children and that which was then thrust upon us. She said to me, “it is as if everything I was ever taught was a lie.” I responded, “No! they are the liars. Not your parents, not your good priests and nuns and teachers, it was not they who lied to you, they were right then, and they are right now.”

And this is the danger, that good people who are only now becoming aware of the horrors of the Bergoglian papacy are going to lose their faith because they do not know what to believe and what is true anymore.

This is how modernism works. A drop of poison. One drop at a time.

It is the “synthesis of all heresies” and Bergoglio is its teacher.

St. Pius X, Pray for us.
