[Which Pope Pius XIII?]

In the last blog post [see comment below] I have touched upon the merely superficial effect of a bad papacy in bringing about the evil, as the only one accepting the novelties will be the ones who were embracing them anyway. However, this does not make a Pope, or a Papacy, irrelevant. A good Pope would have a huge influence within and without the Catholic world.

The values of today help shape the morality of tomorrow. A great, uncompromising, staunch warrior for Catholic values like an hypothetical Pius XIII would not cause a mass conversion in the likes of Francis. However, his vigorous campaign would send ripple effects through the press, the television and radio, and the Internet-driven social media channels. A new narrative would start impacting collective thinking and feeling. The Catholic trumpet would resound loud and clear. In time, this narrative would start to impact on local elections and local power structures, making its further resurgence easier.

It would not be a fast process, but it would be a massive one. An entire generation would start to grow in a substantially different environment than the present one. When the political power finds it convenient to follow religious instances, the atheist narrative and its consequences (abortion, euthanasia, perversion, disgregation of the family etc.) can only be toppled.

Imagine a Pope Pius XIII during a Trump Presidency: it would be a double whammy of global proportions, changing the narrative even in those Countries (like the UK) where the most practised religion will soon be Islam. It would be the recovery of Christian values as the basis of traditional Western culture. It would be a mutual strengthening in time of peace as well as in time of (just, or sacrosanct) war. It would be the end of PC rubbish in all but, say, the Nordic Countries.

And this is the biggest problem with a wrong Papacy: not much the evil that it cannot do, but the good that it does not want to do.

With Trump as President and Pence as Vice President, we are missing a wonderful occasion.

    [Which bad papacy?]

    I am often led to reflect about the impact that a bad Papacy has on our Western culture, and I would like to spend two words on my reflections.

    Like everyone working in the UK, I have a good deal of heathens under my colleagues and acquaintances, and it is perfectly evident to me that Francis is irrelevant to them: they barely know who he is and they do not care about what he says.

    Then there are the atheists; who, coming from a Western background rather than from Sri Lanka of Pakistan, very well know who Francis is and in what he differs for his predecessors. However, they do not care about him, either. They think of him and his antics as an evidence that the Pope thinks like them, but even they know all too well that this is not what the Church teaches. They dismiss both as false, and the thing ends there.

    The instructed Catholics are horrified by the man. They do not drink that kool-aid at all. They only differ in the degree of public criticism of the Evil Clown: very timid or even cowardly for most, assertive and combative in some. But the horror is the same.

    Last, the tepid, wannabe, thin-varnished, hearsay Catholics. They certainly use Francis as an excuse for their becoming even more tepid and even more wannabe than they already are, but this seems to me more the willed acceleration of an erosion process that would be underway anyway, than a change of direction of any sort. Yes, the weakness of the Church may one day cause the disappearance of Catholicism from Countries like Italy of France; however, this would happen not directly because the Pope orchestrated it, but rather very indirectly because the dechristianised people of Europe want it that way in the first place, and being dechristianised don’t even care whether the Pope agrees with them or not.

    In short, it seems to me that a bad papacy creates a sort of chameleon effect: it disappears in the background of the atheist, perverted Western world, and exactly in virtue of this disappearance it has little effect on the world at large. The largest impact of a bad papacy is, if you ask me, rather in this: the dismissal and refusal of the role of the Church, of her mission to be an enemy of the world.

    Francis is hugely damaging in that he prevents the Church from being a strong force for Catholic truth. But as for actual, active damage, leading people who wish to be good towards a bad life, it seems to me that he does not have this power.

    Catholicism stands like a huge block of granite against this idiot, continuously scratching at it with a fork as he shouts “look at me, comrades!”. Only people who hate the granite will ever be impressed, and not even many among them.

    If you become like the world you disappear in it. Irrelevance is the price of acquiescence.
