Last week these “Comments” expressed a pious hope that the Society of St Pius X might be once more taking the heroic stand of its Founder in 1988, when for the survival of the Faith he consecrated, against Rome’s explicit prohibition, four of his priests as bishops to defend and protect the Faith. Alas, it is better to stay with reality than with fond illusions. The reality is that on Maundy Thursday of last Holy Week, in the Society’s priestly seminary in Zaitzkofen, South Germany, the episcopal ceremony of Consecrating the Holy Oils was performed by a bishop himself consecrated in accordance with the doubtful rite of the Newchurch, and not with the certainly valid rite of Catholic Tradition. 

Now it is an exaggeration to claim that that new rite is automatically invalid, in other words, in all cases invalid. Like all the new sacramental rites imposed on the Church in the 1960’s and 1970’s, in the wake and in the name of Vatican II (1962-1965), it is ambiguous in spirit and in nature. That is to say that it is open both to God’s Tradition and to man’s modernity.  For instance Our Lord’s Church is a monarchy, but the bishop portrayed in the new rite is democratic in spirit. So the new rite was designed to include both new and old, and to exclude neither, and this was how it had to be if the Conciliar revolution was to succeed.  For if the old and true religion had been too clearly excluded, Catholics would have seen what was going on, and would never have accepted the revolution, whereas if the modernist religion of Conciliarism had not been sufficiently included, the revolution could not have taken place either.

Hence ambiguity was, and still is, the order of the day, in order to corrupt believing Catholics and put them on the slide to losing their belief. Because if any Traditional Catholic says that Bishop Huonder has never been properly Consecrated, the answer is, “Oh no, the new rite is perfectly valid”, whereas if any modern Catholic complains that Bishop Huonder is betraying the Council by behaving like a Traditional bishop, then the answer is, “Oh no, he agreed beforehand with the Pope to be doing what he is doing”. And the “good” Bishop himself no doubt sees no contradiction in serving at one and the same time both the Pope in Rome, and episcopal Tradition in Switzerland.  But ambiguity is not of God.

Here is the heart of the problem for millions of Catholics, still today : centuries of modern philosophy and liberalism and religious liberty have steadily washed out of their minds, at least in matters of religion, all sense of any objective Truth corresponding to reality, imposing unity, and excluding contradiction. To the modern mind, any such “truth” is not a liberation from error but a mental tyranny, a deprivation of liberty, a refusal of human dignity, and so on. Here is Thomas Jefferson, hero of a famous Revolution, writing to a friend in 1800, “I have sworn upon the altar of God eternal hostility to every form of tyranny over the mind of man”.  The quotation is enshrined inside the Jefferson Monument in his nation’s capital.

Obviously, the problem of Truth being made to serve freedom instead of freedom serving Truth does not date from yesterday or yesteryear. It goes back at least as far as Martin Luther (1483-1546), “the first modern man” (Fichte), who so threw up against the Catholic Truth his volcanic “Me – Man !”, that the Catholic Church needed a whole Council to define its dogmatic truths from God, needing for the first time to be defined because they were being so shaken by the rise of Subjectivity for the “rights of man”.

Here is where our modern world began, which is so deeply engulfed in the defiance of God – “Here I stand, I can do no other”, cried Luther.  So maybe a Bishop Huonder can hardly be blamed for seeing no contradiction in what he is doing ?  Nor a Pope Bergoglio for commissioning him to act as a Trojan Horse within the SSPX ? Nor the successors of Archbishop Lefebvre at the head of the SSPX for failing to recognise a Trojan Horse ?  Maybe… God alone so knows all, that His judgment of subjects is infallible. As for me, I need not judge their Subjectivities, but I am absolutely bound to judge objectively, as best I can, in order myself to die not as a Protestant but as a Catholic, so as to save my soul.

                                                                                                                                                Kyrie eleison.

To judge-condemn, God may, while I may not,

But judge-discern I must, to flee the rot.



On March 16 of this year, Fr. Edward MacDonald, virtual head of the Catholic “Resistance” in Australia and New Zealand, wrote an excellent article for his people on the so-called “excommunication” of the four bishops consecrated by Archbishop Lefebvre on June 30 1988 at Econe in Switzerland. The article shows clearly just how the modernists in Rome outwitted the Archbishop’s successors at the head of the SSPX, and in effect crippled the SSPX’s defence of the true Catholic Faith, unless it is willing to return in action and not just in words to the Archbishop’s clear putting of the integral Faith above false “obedience” —

In any SSPX-Rome agreement the crucial question has always been: who appoints henceforth the SSPX bishops ? 1The reason is that the history of the Catholic Church is littered with examples of the struggle between the friends and enemies of God – normally Church and State respectively – for control of the appointment of Catholic bishops, because, the Catholic Church being a monarchy and not a modern “democracy”, then it is the bishops who form the Catholic people and not the people who form the bishops.

Both Archbishop Lefebvre and Cardinal Ratzinger understood this well when they met near Rome in 1988 to negotiate such an agreement. The wily Cardinal nearly wrested control of the appointment of SSPX bishops from the Archbishop in the Protocol (sketch of an agreement) signed by them on May 5, but by God’s grace the Archbishop realized that he was imperilling the Faith, took back his signature on May 6 and, assisted by Bishop de Castro Mayer, consecrated on June 30 four of his priests as bishops in “Operation Survival”. He saidhe was breaking no Church law:We are convinced that all these accusations or penalties of which we may be the object,are null, absolutely null and void, and we will take no account of them” 2.The SSPX explained why the Archbishop was correct in a brochure:“Neither Schismatic nor Excommunicated”.

However, about
20 years later, Bishop Fellay felt that the null and void “excommunications” should be taken seriously after all, because he felt as though he was outside of theVisibleChurch 3. As for Cardinal Ratzinger, he had never admitted that Archbishop Lefebvre had bested him in 1988, so now as Pope Benedict hewas still determined to control the appointment of SSPX bishops. One pre-condition set for admitting the SSPX into the Visible Church was that Pope Benedict would lift the “excommunications” on the four SSPX bishops. The SSPX prayed that this would happen and rejoiced when the “excommunications” were indeed “lifted” by the Pope. Unwisely, the SSPX expressed gratitude to the Pope for his good will and generosity.

But by 2023 the SSPX has now multiplied its ties with the “Visible Church”. Its bishops are older and the health of some of them has deteriorated. The faithful wonder, why are no new bishops forthcoming? It is because the SSPX have painted themselves into a corner. By asking for the lifting of these null and void “excommunications”, the SSPX implicitly recognised that they were real, and implicitly they promised that they would never again consecrate bishops without Rome’s approval, as the Archbishop had done in 1988. That would show a great “ingratitude” to Pope Benedict, and they would deserve to be re-excommunicated.

Thus during his lifetime Archbishop Lefebvre won the battles with Rome, but his successors, lacking the clarity of his faith and insight into the treachery of modernism, were not the warriors that he was, and did not see how the (objective) deceits of wily Benedict / Ratzinger had wrested control from them of their future bishops, thus, in effect, crippling the SSPX. Here is how Pope Francis or his successor will choose the next SSPX bishop or bishops, and these will form the priests and faithfulof the SSPX, finallyintegrating them into the Conciliar Church. Probably there will be only a whimper of protest, as the SSPX faithful are being all the time more and more sweetly misled into believing in the “renewed” Catholicism of Vatican II.

[Notes: 1 Eleison Comments #116, September 26, 2009. 2 3 Many “Christian” churches are visible, so that visibility is not a Mark of the one true Church, to distinguish it from false “churches”. Catholics must be where the four Marks are, i.e. One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic. And if any visible “church” does not have all four Marks, it is anathema. We must avoid it.]

Kyrie eleison.

“Good” modernists no longer know the Church.

“Good” Cardinal Ratzinger left us in the lurch.



“The Resurrection,” says modern man, “oh yes, it’s a lovely idea, it gives comfort to weak souls to think that there may be something after death, especially something nice, like some kind of heaven, but of course it’s not true. Once people die, they don’t come back to life, science knows that that just doesn’t happen. Death is the end. We need to stop dreaming. We need to get on with our lives on earth and live them to the full, for as long as we can, and accept that we will all die, and that’s it. It’s over. Nothing.”

That is how many a man would like to think, because of course it gives him permission, so to speak, to live life just as he likes, without having to worry about anything after death. He need not care about the Ten Commandments, or God, or Heaven or Hell, or eternity or anything like that. He believes in Science, Science says that all that religious twaddle cannot be proved, it is just pious nonsense. Unfortunately for such a man, it is not he who created himself in his mother’s womb, it is not he who built the framework of life on earth into which he was born, it is not he who set the conditions on which he lives and dies.  “Know ye that the Lord, He is God: He made us and not we ourselves. We are His people and the sheep of His pasture” (Ps. IC, 3). (As for “Science”, it cannot make an ant live, let alone a human being.)

And a large part of the conditions on which we live is that we are composed of body and soul, and death consists in the two being separated. Then the body normally decomposes and rots, as we can observe, but,  whether we like it or not, the soul lives on because it is immortal, pure spirit, with no material parts to fall apart and decompose. At that moment of death the soul comes before the divine Judge, as neither we nor Science can observe, but as is certain in many places of the Word of God (e.g. Mt. XXV, 46; Jn.V, 29). If the soul goes to Heaven, it rises for eternal life; if it goes to Purgatory, it rises for purgation of remaining sins until it is fit for Heaven; if it goes to Hell, it rises from death to fall into eternal live punishment. In any case the soul by itself lives on without its body until that body rejoins it at world’s end, for eternity.

“Well,” says our modern friend, “if those are the conditions on which I find myself here, I do not accept them ! When I was conceived in my mother’s womb, I was not consulted as to whether or not I wanted to be born, and if I had been consulted, I would have said NO to living for ever. I protest !  It’s not fair !”

My good friend, firstly, it’s too late to protest. You now exist, your soul exists, and it can never cease to exist, except if God were to annihilate it, which He could do but never does, as His true Church has infallibly told us. And secondly, it’s unfair to protest, because His one and only purpose in giving you life as a sheer gift, without your being consulted, was that you should go to Heaven to enjoy everlasting and unimaginable bliss by seeing Him spiritually in all His dazzling glory. Now the brute animals have a soul,

but it is a purely material soul, incapable of spiritual bliss, so for you to share in His bliss He needed to make you a rational animal with intelligence and free-will.

However, if God did give you free-will, He and you ran the risk of your misusing it, but that would not be His fault. In fact every single soul in Hell remembers, all too clearly, how relatively easily it could have been saved, if only it had wished, and this memory is a large part of its unending torment. In life, God’s help had always been “closer than the door” (Irish saying). It is only the soul that chose not to want it. True, the soul was not consulted before it was given existence with no possibility of not existing for ever. But the possibility of seeing God is so magnificent that it is protesting against it which is unfair.

Therefore, if we have been baptised, we should have risen with Christ from the spiritually dead to a new life, says St Paul. Let Catholics but lead that new life, and their example can save whatever can still be saved in our poor world.

If Catholics lived by their risen life within,

They could yet save a world drowning in sin.

ELEISON  COMMENTS  DCCCXXI (April 8, 2023) :    C H A R I T Y  !

Dear Readers, you or I may be the greatest of Restradcats (“Resistant” Traditional Catholics), but if we have no true charity towards our fellow-men, then in the words of St Paul, “we may have all faith so as to move mountains”, but without charity we are a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal… we are nothing…” (I Cor. XIII, 1-3) – dear friends, do you by chance come across any gongs or cymbals on the Internet ?

If you do, it is understandable.  “Strike the shepherd that the sheep may be scattered” is a quotation from an Old Testament prophet (Zechariah XIII, 7) applied by Our Lord to His own situation in the Garden of Gethsemane (Mt. XXVI, 31), when He was so being struck by the servants of the Temple that all eleven Apostles remaining, after Judas’ betrayal, were utterly confused, and abandoned their divine Master.  So if today Pope Bergoglio is struck down by the same modernism that struck his five Conciliar predecessors, that makes – 1965 to 2023 – 58 years of deep confusion at the very top of the Church. Then who can be surprised if the Catholic sheep are scattered ?  Or if they turn on one another, and bite ?  Is not our eternal salvation at stake ?  So the temptation to turn on our neighbour and start clanging like a gong or cymbal is clear, but it must be resisted. Let us try for a moment to put ourselves in the place of Almighty God.

From eternity God knew that Adam and Eve would fall, and that mankind would only decline from then on, unless He intervened to have mercy upon them, before and after His greatest intervention of all, which was of course the Incarnation of His own Son and the foundation among men of His one true Church. That Church, He decreed, was to rise for about 500 years, the Ancient World; to triumph for about 1000 years, the Middle Ages; and then to decline over another 500 odd years, the modern world. At the end of these approximately 2000 years He decreed not another triumph of 1000 years but, as His own Son told us, the virtual disappearance of His Church – “When the Son of man comes, will He find the faith on earth ?” (Lk. XVIII 8). (We may not understand this decree of God, but that quote says what it says.)

However, how could His Church virtually disappear if it always had good Popes, bishops and priests ? Especially Popes, because He Himself built His Church on Peter (Mt. XVI, 18; Jn. XXI, 15-17). It would follow that towards the end of the world it would be God Himself who decided from eternity to allow a sequence of half a dozen (objectively) bad Popes, such as we have seen since Vatican II. These six Popes in particular have not been the fault of God but of all the human beings, especially Catholic priests, who down the ages have built up today’s worldwide apostasy, to eject the Creator from His own Creation and to take His place. However, the apostasy could never have happened without His permission.  But it was God Himself who chose to make His Church depend on Peter, in which case He obviously foresaw how His own permission of defective Popes would scatter the Catholic sheep. In that case, how can He not have a special measure of understanding and mercy for them, unless they too want to get rid of Him ?

And even then, does not the Sacred Heart say, “I have compassion on the crowd” (Mk. VIII, 2) ?

In which case, following the divine example, must not “Restradcats” have all the more compassion, especially on our fellow Catholics (Gal. VI, 10) ?  And let us bear in mind that many non-Catholics are being driven by the apparently insoluble problems of today’s world to be thinking of God, so that many of them may easily finish among the last that will be first, while if we ourselves do not practise charity, we could easily count among the first that will be last (Mk. X, 31). Our Lord told His Apostles that they would be recognised as His followers by the charity they would have for one another (Jn. XIII, 35). Are there not a number of Traditional Catholics presently scandalising souls by our lack of charity towards one another ?  We will answer for it before the judgment seat of God, especially after the gifts we have received from Him to be keeping the Faith today.

                                                                                                                                                 Kyrie eleison.

Truth is quite indispensable, supreme !

Yes, but it’s nothing, if love be off our screen.



If godlessness is the great plague from which the world is now suffering, one remedy is to read not only the New Testament of the Bible but also the Old Testament, because one and the same God was the main writer (using the human writers as instruments) of both Testaments, and both together constitute, so to speak, His one autobiography. His enemies try to drive a wedge between the justice of Jehovah in the O.T. and the mercy of Jesus in the N.T., but His friends have no difficulty in showing how one and the same God Incarnate is implicit in the O.T, explicit in the N.T..  Nevertheless, it is surely true to say that Jehovah is in the forefront of the Old Testament while Jesus is in the forefront of the New Testament. If then one can also say that today’s worldwide godlessness consists not so much in the rejection of Christ as in the materialistic denial of the very existence of God (Jehovah), then here lies the interest of knowing the Old Testament, where Jehovah thunders, in a manner of speaking, on every page. Take for instance this passage from Deuteronomy VIII, 11-20 : —

[11“Take heed lest you forget the LORD your God, by not keeping his commandments and his ordinances and his statutes, which I command you this day: lest, when you have eaten and are full, and have built goodly houses and live in them, and when your herds and flocks multiply, and your silver and gold is multiplied, and all that you have is multiplied,  then your heart be lifted up, and you forget the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage, who led you through the great and terrible wilderness, with its fiery serpents and scorpions and thirsty ground where there was no water, who brought you water out of the flinty rock, who fed you in the wilderness with manna which your fathers knew not, that he might humble you and test you, to do you good in the end.

[17] Beware lest you say in your heart, `My power and the might of my hand have gotten me this wealth.’  You shall remember the LORD your God, for it is he who gives you power to get wealth; that he may confirm his covenant which he swore to your fathers, as at this day. And if you forget the LORD your God and go after other gods and serve them and worship them, I solemnly warn you this day that you shall surely perish.  Like the nations that the LORD makes to perish before you, so shall you perish, because you would not obey the voice of the LORD your God.

Almost the whole book of Deuteronomy is taken up with the last instructions of the great man of God that was Moses. He has led the Israelites out of Egypt, through the Red Sea, through 40 years in the desert, and now they are on the brink of entering the Promised Land, which he himself will not enter. As he is 120 years old and about to die, he is giving to the Israelites his very last instructions. Read the whole Book of Deuteronomy to see how his immense preoccupation is to prevent the Israelites from turning away from God, after they had been privileged by God with the special mission of preparing for the coming of the world’s Messiah. Again and again Moses warns them of how they will be punished by God if they are unfaithful, but specially blessed and protected by God if they are faithful. In the passage above, Moses is warning of the particular danger of material prosperity making them forget the Lord their God.

Now apply Moses’ warning to the New Testament. Ever since the death of Our Lord on the Cross, which instituted the New Testament, Catholics know that by faith they are the real People of God, and no longer the Israelites by race. Over Catholics’ 2,000 years of history, have Catholics not been entrusted by God with bringing all peoples of the world to believe in Christ ?  When they were faithful, did they not spread “Christendom” far and wide ?  But from the end of the Middle Ages onwards they began to be unfaithful, culminating in Vatican II, in a process of turning from things spiritual to things material, which did achieve worldwide an unprecedented material prosperity. For never before have so many men been so well fed, so well housed, so well provided with material goods. But where is the Lord their God in their lives ? Virtually nowhere. And instead, where are we ?  On the brink of nuclear Armageddon.  God, have mercy !

                                                                                                                                                Kyrie eleison

Moses is out of date, long gone. Farewell ?

Whoever thinks so, wends his way to Hell !



For all readers who have access to the Internet and who want to keep their heads free of the pack of lies that make up the official narrative on the Russia-Ukraine war, there are, still accessible on You Tube at least four notable truth-tellers who, at least up till now, have proved to be reporters on whom one can rely to know what is really happening in the unfortunate Ukraine. They are three Americans, Colonel Douglas MacGregor, Scott Ritter and Gonzalo Lira, and a team of two Greeks who go under the name of The Duran, Alex Cristoforou, and Alexander Mercouris who lives in London.  At  can be found the Duran in a fascinating conversation dating from just before Christmas of last year, but not out of date, on the whole background of the war.  Here is a summary of the conversation –

The West’s objective in Ukraine is to destroy Russia. The supply of long-range missiles and drones by NATO is not about Ukraine achieving a military victory. It’s about creating chaos and sowing unrest and division in Russia.

The crisis in Ukraine was engineered by the West on the basis that there would be a colour revolution in Russia and regime change. Sanctions would knock the Russian leadership off balance and the Russian people would rise up and overthrow Putin as the economy collapsed. However, the opposite has happened. The Russian economy is stable, Putin’s popularity remains high and Russia is now embarking on a major military build-up to crush Ukraine.

Former German Chancellor Angela Merkel recently admitted that the Minsk agreement (signed by Russia and Ukraine in 2014) served only to buy the West time to re-arm Ukraine. Russia has determined that direct confrontation with the West is now inevitable. Either NATO dissolves and the EU breaks up, or there will be a conflict. Does NATO continue to expand towards Russia, or face reality?

However, the neo-cons in Washington are leading the West into a trap. They are going for broke to drag the war out to the last Ukrainian. They are calling for “whatever it takes”, including US boots on the ground, as the path to a Ukrainian victory (this demand has already been made in London by the Guardian journalist Simon Tisdall). US troops deployed in Ukraine will mean World War 3. Will the Pentagon resist the neo-con strategy? Possibly, but it may depend on who is in power in the US if the war drags on.

The main obstacle for the neo-cons is not Russia but China. China has a much bigger economy than Russia with a far larger military. The neo-con strategy is for the US to go in hard and fast in Ukraine, take out Russia with regime change and then have a clear pathway to war with China. It’s a reckless “winner takes all” gamble. We are coming to the final act of the play. The deliberate sabotage of the Nord Stream gas pipelines demonstrates the lengths to which the neo-cons will go. If you are prepared to blow up a gas pipeline then where do you stop?

The great advantage of this presentation of the war in the Ukraine is that it gives the most convincing answer to serious questions : why is this war, so damaging to so many nations, being fought at all ?  Who is ultimately behind it, and what is their motivation ?  To punish the apostate Gentiles all over the world, God is using as His scourge a race of men (“neo-cons”) in their drive to achieve that tyranny over the world which they believe is their right. They are wreaking damage unimaginable, but they can never go any further than He allows, and nothing less will change men’s ways.

                                                                                                                                         Kyrie eleison.

God says to wicked men, “This is your hour,

But I alone grant to your darkness power.”           (cf. Lk. XXII, 53)   



Fr. Chad Ripperger is a Catholic priest and exorcist of many years’ good standing in the archdiocese of Denver, USA, and he is still not yet cancelled despite the fact that he is telling much truth from the pulpit. The Newchurch must be longing to cancel him as they have done in recent years to so many good priests all over the world, but perhaps they dare not do so because he knows too many of their hidden secrets. Be that as it may, here below is an adaptation and summary of many points that he made in a sermon entitled “On the State of Evil in the World”  and accessible on You tube, unless it too has been cancelled. We lay out Fr. Ripperger’s  problem in Church and State, and then his solution.

In the Church : the modernists’ take-over of the official Church in the 1960’s has proved to be an unmitigated disaster, but officially Vatican II remains the elephant in the room which no priest is allowed to mention without his running the serious risk of being “cancelled”, or deprived of any standing or activity in the Newchurch (not Fr. R’s own term, he might rather call it the “Deep Church”). Here the modernists are becoming ever more draconian, because they have lost the argument, and there remains for them only force by which to ram the disaster down Catholics’ throats. The Church is in survival mode, it is only getting smaller, and if events turn really ugly, then even more Catholics will give up. That high churchmen are positively evil, is proved by their fruits which invariably maximise the damage they do to the Church. Our Lord’s own words to His Apostles, “Going teach all nations” (Mt. XXVIII, 19-20), clearly signify that the State has no power over the Church or over its doctrine, yet the Conciliar bishops lie down under the State authorities, as they did with the Covid scamdemic, and they are silent even on horrors like transgender, leaving the laity with no guidance to save their souls. As a result, Catholics behave just like non-Catholics and can no longer be distinguished from the world.  However, if 98% of the laity go on practising contraception, as research found them to be doing 30 years ago, with the silent approval of bishops and priests, then God may well take away from Catholics their spiritual gifts to give them to others more deserving, and the laity may lose even their good priests. Bad priests can be the sign of a special punishment from God.

In the State :  all four sins taught by the Church to be crying for vengeance, are rife !  Wilful murder we see in abortion, euthanasia and the Culture of Death. Defrauding the labourer of his lawful wage is to be found in excessive government taxation, far beyond the Biblical tithe, or one tenth of their subjects’ income. As for sodomy, not even in Sodom was same-sex marriage flaunted and promoted like today. Lastly, an example of oppression of the poor can be seen in how Communism everywhere eliminates the middle class.  Here the Deep State shows its control, which can shut down the world economy in two weeks, and effectively silence any truth-tellers, just as in the parallel Deep Church, or Newchurch. Our supposed political leaders are mere puppets of evil, but its present triumph can only mean that the triumph of good is coming. If bad predictions can come true, so can good predictions…

Fr. Ripperger’s good news :  At Fatima Our Lady promised an era of peace, an incomparably glorious triumph of the Church. We see already preventive graces preparing for graces to come. The demons know that their time is coming, when God will say, “Enough !” Many of the younger clergy are more Catholic than their elders. Governments are not persuading people, but are ramming the evil down our throats. Many a young priest wants Catholic doctrine, liturgy, and the truth. The older generation, fixated in the revolutionary 1960’s, is dying out. The more suffering there will be of priests cancelled and silenced, the more they will be orthodox. Many young married folk are having large families again. Things are changing slowly. The remnant will be more solid. Those who persevere under persecution will go high in Heaven. To suffer is a sign of God’s favour. Our Lady has said that when Communism seems to have won, it is then that God will intervene. The ensuing Chastisement will be for our sanctification. We must focus on God, and peace and joy will be ours.

Despite the one and only official narrative acceptable in today’s world of lies, whereby Adolf Hitler was the Devil incarnate and the Nazis were alone responsible for all war crimes of World War II, nevertheless  few people deny that between 1933, when the Nazis came to power, and 1939 when World War II broke out, there was in Germany a remarkable economic revival for the benefit of the entire German people. This was unquestionably due in large part to Germany’s escaping for a few years from the international banksters’ economic stranglehold upon almost all nations of the world, by which they impose usurious debts to keep those nations under their political control. In fact one major motive for the same banksters to organise World War II was to prevent Germany from permanently escaping out from under their control, and after Germany had been crushed in 1945, that control was immediately restored.

However, one economist who worked for that temporary escape from the Money Masters was a high-up but little-known member of the Nazi party, an engineer turned economist, by name Gottfried Feder (1883-1941). In an extract from a Manifesto he wrote in 1919 it is interesting to observe both the strength and the weakness of how he analyses the problems facing a modern nation, caught between Capitalism and Communism. Here is that extract –

“Our greatest social task is the abolition of interest slavery. This responsibility to abolish interest slavery towers above all other issues of the day. It is the only solution to the greatest problem of our time. The breaking of interest slavery is the most important moral imperative in social terms, it rises in its general significance far beyond all questions of the day, it is the solution of social questions, it is the only way out of the terrible confusion of the time. The abolition of interest slavery will deliver us from ultra-capitalist domination while avoiding both Communist destruction of the human spirit and Capitalist degradation of labour. The abolition of interest slavery opens the way to a truly social economy, by liberating us from the overwhelming domination of money. It opens the way to a state based on creative work and genuine accomplishment”.

On the economic level Feder is surely right on target. It is by their mastery of money, by interest slavery  in particular, which is the modern form of damnable usury, that the banksters have succeeded in building up their worldwide supremacy on the way to imposing their worldwide tyranny over all mankind, their New World Order. On the level of politics Feder also sees clearly the inadequacy of Communism or Capitalism to solve the social problems of a modern nation, and an honest observer of the Third Reich in the years leading up to World War II must admit that the Nazis did blaze a trail for other countries in our time, showing how to build “a state based on creative work and genuine accomplishment.” But as soon as  war broke out, all such accomplishments were buried beneath the opprobrium heaped upon Germany all over the world, in order to discredit utterly the very idea of “abolishing interest slavery.”  Yet it was the temporary relief from that slavery that had played a large part in those accomplishments.

What had happened to smother the truth ?  What had happened was that Germany’s real problem was neither economic nor political, but religious. Luther (1483-1546) broke Germany in two, undermining the  Catholic Church immediately in North and East Germany by Protestantism, in South and West over the long term by the liberalism that his Protestantism alone made possible. To reunite Germany Hitler had to bypass religion and rely on patriotic politics. But to try cure godlessness by more godlessness is like trying to put out a fire by pouring petrol on it. The best of patriotism or of economics is powerless to cure a loss of religion.  Now read again the paragraph of Feder above, and see how emphatically he repeats the supreme importance of the economic problem. No wonder he and the Nazis and Hitler wrought not the salvation of their country, but its destruction, like that of Ukraine today. God is not mocked (Gal. VI, 7).

In another tremendous text of January 21st from Archbishop Vigano, in the name of the true God, the true Church and the true Mass he castigates the Newchurch of Vatican II with its counterfeit “Mass”. Here is a cruelly short summary of the long original, accessible under         Lifesitenews/opinion/abpvigano  

Vatican II, not being a dogmatic Council, did not intend to define any doctrinal truth, limiting itself to reaffirming, often unclearly, doctrines previously defined clearly and unequivocally by the infallible authority of the Magisterium. It was unduly and forcibly considered as “the” Council, the “superdogma” of the new “Conciliar church,” to the point of redefining the Church in relation to that event.

In the history of the Church, until Vatican II, it had never happened that a Council could, in effect, have more authority than twenty dogmatic Councils. Yet it happened, amid the silence of the majority of the Episcopate and with the approval of five Roman Pontiffs, from John XXIII to Benedict XVI. And in these fifty years of permanent revolution, not one of these Popes has ever questioned the “magisterium” of Vatican II, or dared to condemn its heretical theses or clear up its double-talk.

On the contrary, all the Popes since Paul VI have made Vatican II and its implementation so central to the programme of their Pontificate that they subordinated and tied their papal Authority to whatever the Council dictated. Their “magisterium” begins with Vatican II and ends there, and succeeding Popes have proclaimed their immediate Predecessors to be Saints for the sole fact of having convoked, concluded, or applied the Council. Theological language has also been adapted to the double-talk of the Conciliar texts, going so far as to adopt as defined doctrines things that before the Council were considered heretical, such as the State being above religion.

For once, Pope Bergoglio is perfectly right when he claims that the Tridentine Mass is an intolerable threat to Vatican II, because indeed that Mass is so Catholic that it undermines any attempt at peaceful coexistence between the two “forms” of the same Roman Rite. Indeed, it is absurd to conceive of an ordinary Montinian “form” and an extraordinary Tridentine “form”. The Novus Ordo is the expression in worship of a quite different religion – that of the “Conciliar church”. It is a spurious, equivocal rite, so “favouring heresy” that it deserves only to be suppressed and done away with.

I would not be surprised if, in the very near future, those who are abusing the Pope’s Authority in order to demolish the true Church will not only limit the celebration of the ancient Mass, but prohibit it altogether. If Rome were to forbid the celebration of the ancient Mass, Catholics who believe that they can serve two masters – the Church of Christ and the Conciliar church – will discover that they have been deceived. They will have to choose between either disobeying an illicit order in order to obey God, or else bowing their heads to the will of the tyrant while betraying their duty as ministers of God.  

This is no less than the battle between Christ and Satan. A battle for the Mass, which is the heart of our Faith, the throne upon which the Divine Eucharistic King descends, the Calvary on which the immolation of the Immaculate Lamb is renewed in an unbloody form. This battle must be fought over the essential difference between the God-centred vision of the Tridentine Mass and the man-centred vision of its Conciliar counterfeit. Let us ensure that however unworthy we may be, we shall deserve the future praise of the Church while we prepare ourselves for those trials in which we testify that we belong to Christ.

At last, a high-up churchman speaking clearly,                                                                                                For which we love Archbishop Vigano dearly.     



Thanks be to God for all the good that the Society of St Pius X has done and is still doing for souls, but it has changed from what it was under Archbishop Lefebvre (1905-1991).  Here is an interesting testimony from somebody who knows  the Society –

Over a certain number of years I have noticed a change of approach to formation and to the ideal priestly candidate which is currently fostered in an SSPX seminary. For instance, am I right in distinguishing between sound doctrine (which the SSPX still manifests) and a “niceness” that has developed in its presentation, which seemingly pervades, yet handcuffs, the SSPX’s ability to combat errors and preach the doctrine uninhibited by human respect ?  The “nice” presentation of sound doctrine can get one out of many a tight spot, because if one is accused of compromising, one can always answer that the doctrine is not being changed, it is only that the situation demands a more gentle approach. This answer smacks of liberalism, but if it is veiled by faithfulness to the doctrine, then a man can think that there is no compromise. However, is there not a loss of that simplicity by which souls know exactly what needs to be said or done ?  I feel as though I cannot quite put my finger on exactly what this new mindset is. Do you think there is any merit in my concern that the orthodoxy may eventually be undermined ?

And here is a second question not unconnected with the first.  In seminary formation for the priesthood, should not seminarians be appreciated and encouraged if they want to go beneath the surface of things to penetrate to all the consequences of the truth? In recent years, SSPX priests or seminarians seem to have become suspect if they ask questions or seek to understand the reasoning behind decisions. Even if one shows the utmost prudence and respect, the simple fact of questioning something is met with concern on the part of the SSPX authorities.  Thus stronger personalities are the more closely scrutinized, and even if they have vocations, they seem to experience a more trying time in the apostolate.

So do you think it is naive of me to wonder if good men who seek to preach Christ the King effectively, without political correctness, will still be able to bear fruit in the  apostolate, given that the focus (at least on the surface of the SSPX) is more on the image of Tradition than on the fight for souls? I want to offer my life for God, but might someone in my position experience difficulty, given the current SSPX approach ?  Of course God can do with us what He wants, and we do not know the future, nor should we, but I do ask you if you think the warrior type is being neutralized by a spirit that practically avoids confrontation and dissuades any independent analysis.

Applying principles of the Faith to the secular realm is surely linked intimately with the reign of Christ over the whole of society, and not just with one’s personal spiritual life.

“Niceness” must often be left well behind.

When men are soft, being cruel can be kind.
