CP&S comment. That is exactly what is happening in the Church under the Francis papacy: a large number of good priests, faithful priests, priests who refuse to either omit or dilute Catholic magisterial teachings, and whose only concern is to lead their flocks on the path to Heaven, are being literally “cancelled” by their bishops.
Watch this eye-opening and heart-breaking video from ‘Church Militant’, an interview between Michael Voris and nine faithful priests relating the sad reality of their experiences. One would expect the Pope, guardian and protector of the Deposit of Faith, to immediately have a bit of a talk with their gravely deficient bishops, right? Far from it; instead of coming out in defence of these courageous priests for acting as true ‘alter Christus’, Francis looks the other way and instead chooses to harp on again about rigidity!
No priest, bishop, or pope is more ‘rigid’ than one who refuses to humbly obey their priestly vows to preach the Truth of the Catholic Church’s teachings, but rather seeks worldly values and to make a church in their own image and likeness.
Father Z claims that there are “hundreds” of priests who have been sidelined, cancelled!
The laity must rally round and support our holy priests who refuse to tow the worldly line which, regretfully, some weak bishops have succumbed to.
Now we have this from LifeSiteNews:
Pope Francis again laments ‘clericalism’ of ‘rigid seminarians’
Deacon Nick Donnelly emphasizes:
“Pope Francis reserves the word ‘rigid’ for those who uphold obedience to the doctrines of the Church as a necessary characteristic of being a Christian,” Donnelly told LifeSiteNews, remarking that the Pope employs the moniker as a pejorative, despite it describing a fidelity to the Church’s bimillennial tradition. Donnelly continued by extolling such an obedience to tradition as being “rooted in the teachings of Christ (John 14:15) and the apostolic kerygma (Roman 1:5).”
However, “instead of seeing this as an authentic expression of discipleship, Pope Francis invariably suggests that such ‘rigidity’ is a sign of a sinister moral or psychological problem.”
“This must be the first time in the Church’s history that a pope disparages the honesty and integrity of the faithful for obeying Christ and his apostles,” Donnelly concluded.
Reblogged this on Zero Lift-Off and commented:
Of course this renegade “Freemason Worldly Political Pope” Bergoglio does this; and so is it any wonder why some small fragmentary churches that are offshoots of the Martin Luther Reformation who was another huge heretic of that period of time in the past; where similarly in our modern time there are many self-proclaimed Christian leaders running amuck making such insane blanket statements about Catholics and not seeing the actual good history of the Catholic Church, of which there are countless examples of such beautiful faithful service to our Lord Jesus Christ to see, if one is responsible enough to look for this Truth; and not only see the church’s flaws; which I’m sure those pointing fingers have many right under their own noses as well!
My previous blog essay of 2020/5/31 went into detail about a direct assault against me and my Catholic faith in which I do explain how those pointing fingers at me might want to reconsider what Dianna Severance was preaching!
Again this week I encountered though not directed at me, a huge insinuation and proclamation about ALL Catholics and where they are headed. Today with a bit of great news and tremendous blessing; I added that to the previous statement I made to the blog article about all Catholics, which I include here with both links. My hope is that many eyes will be opened and Truth will prevail in the minds of all who have been blinded to it. Amen.

Thank you so much for bringing continued attention to this. We cannot fail to complain and lament openly and to all and to seek to protect the good and holy priests! This is an assault on the flock they feed in the name of the wolves they don’t!

Thank you very much for saying this and you put it perfectly! Isn’t that so true what you said and I can’t help but to repeat what to me is so plain and obvious, that just as in the time of The Reformation the blind are truly leading the blind and today on steroids causing so much damage to the flock, giving the Devil exactly what he has wanted from day one; which is to divide and conquer!
It’s that bad now to the point where the madness and hatred has taken root in so many places high and low throughout societies around the globe, and another cliché that applies is how, “we are all in dire straits” “today.” And of course all this infighting from the start in the Holy Church that Jesus Christ Himself instructed Saint Apostle Peter to build which he did; now being in such disarray, feeding the common notion now that there is no God and so many of God’s children on earth are hardened atheists or even worse if you can imagine, worshiping the beast and Satan, and because of this internal Church conflict/turmoil, they won’t even discuss or open their hearts to the Plain Truth that we actually do have before us! But instead they would rather run rampant with materialism, trusting the Junk Science and Ways of the Crooked World as being their only hope of any human satisfaction or refuge; basically flying blind and lost!
A pure example of this is to just look how people behaved during the fraudulent politically motivated worldly pandemic, behaving like nothing more than herd animals being poked and prodded! So easily accepting or swallowing anything they were told or fed, however irrational, via the corrupted system or as I call it beast. Behaving like this to a point where I was shaking my head daily as individuals would be driving down an interstate highway alone in their vehicle with a mask on up to their eyeballs; to me it was obvious that they were so lost not knowing our Lord, Savior and Redeemer Jesus Christ; being so confused and irrational that if they were to pull those masks up over their eyes entirely having no sight, it would be no different!
I must quote again these particular lines I read yesterday that struck me so sharply as to what I’ve been seeing and feeling as I live each day; it is just like this in my heart and mind.
“Satan and every demon in hell now roam the earth in defiance of Me, during these the end of times, children. They are scattered throughout the world persecuting souls and driving them to the brink of madness.
The evil influence is being felt by almost every one of you at this time. It is because My Existence and that of My beloved Son have been denied, rejected and thrown to, one side, that darkness now covers your world. Without acknowledging the Truth of your Creation on this Earth, you, My beloved children, have become unwittingly a target for Satan.” remnantdisciplesjtm
Dear Lord in heaven, I see this so plain and it really causes me to not want to be here at all. But of course I do regardless; because that is our Father’s will that I must “fight the good fight” and no matter what difficulties are ahead I will face them all for Him, following the Will of the Father through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ who will be with us through every bit of it! I place all of my hope, trust and entire being in His Almighty and Loving Hands. Amen.
I must leave this Scripture to put it bluntly as I see things unfolding now; because this was a huge warning and wake-up call to the world.
Matthew 16:25 “For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.”
Matthew 16:25 Context
“22Then Peter took him, and began to rebuke him, saying, Be it far from thee, Lord: this shall not be unto thee. 23But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men. 24Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 25For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. 26For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? 27For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works. 28Verily I say unto you, There be some standing here, which shall not taste of death, till they see the Son of man coming in his kingdom.”
Again thank you for speaking to this, and your prayers mean so much to me; and the world!
God bless you and yours now and forever. Amen.

Oh gosh you are so kind and thoughtful to say these things to me just another poor sinner, but, you brought tears to my eyes as well and that is best; because it’s a true indicator of my further need of humility and even sorrow for not being good enough in this fallen world, and honest look at one’s self.
Yes, I just thought how when I was a boy I was so cute and gentle to all my loved ones and continued on with the same heart all of my life always an eternal optimist and bold enough because of my faith in Jesus to travel cross country alone and live by the seat of my pants at times in the big cities or wide open spaces of the West. The thought makes me shudder now like you wouldn’t believe; how did I do what I wonder; though I remember having my small Bible with me Trusting in the Lord and did talk to Jesus often, asking for his help and protection so I could just find my way sorting out major objectives, while truly alone for some years.
Now I also realize I’m also a product of the culture and ways of the world that I was immersed into so perhaps any flaws or shabby alterations to my exterior or ways are overlooked by our Lord as I feel through these tears His kind most reassuring understanding, and He tells me its deep inside you Lawrence; that is who I know and who knows me and when you shed those exterior layers even when its temporary, momentary, you still shine from that special place; and in that way you can carry on so easily, because you have loved your Savior and Father in heaven along with your Holy Mother Mary, who appeared to you twice in those trance sleep states many years ago, in order to make you never forget what matters! And you haven’t, so that is a good job, now just keep working to serve your Father in Heaven, always seeking His will for you on earth. His mercy and so kind understanding is beyond our capability to truly appreciate fully, but, then I always think of Saint Dismas who felt like his own chances to be brought into the fold and join the Father, Jesus and Holy Mary were Dismal; yet I smile now because poor Dismas who had tossed his own life about in the world of corruption and sin, when the moment of truth came he poured out his genuine heart and offered all the sorrow in it for letting Jesus down, being such a sinful man and fool! But it makes me cry now to see how beautiful that is, because here he was at his worst moment in material life dying, but at his best moment of revelation and insight when he actually really saw it all plain as day cut and dry, and as a man he added that up and knew by his own conscience he came up short and bankrupt; but he didn’t comprehend at that point that Jesus loved him so much that he already paid the price in full out of His boundless love and mercy, that is actually free for the asking! And Dismas in his “own humbled” way amplified by being on his “own cross” was only asking to be remembered, and that would be really something special having met and talked with the Savior Jesus, but, what a joy for Dismas to find out that Jesus said, you will be with me in my kingdom! OMG, I want to cry joyfully for him so much; good for Dismas, he made it at the last moment, because of what was really tucked away deep in his heart and soul! Jesus and our Father won’t toss anything so genuinely beautiful away into the trash heap; no way.
This is why they went to all this trouble to make the New and Everlasting Covenant; which has been a long and drawn out process out of absolute love and necessity! So see; we have so much Hope all of us, if we just hang in there and keep wanting to try; even a bit more each day, to make fractional improvements, that is so much to our Lord, because it’s the spark of Hope and Genuine Heartfelt Desire to please Him, who makes all things possible for us, and He sees all of these things in all human beings searching for and weighing them out over time, and knows His own; if we belong to Him at the end of our journey, nothing will stand in the way of our Salvation. Amen.
Thank you again so much for bringing this all out in me, and here for this article!
God bless you and yours.

how did I do That I wonder; though * the typos I miss bug me!
St Thomas More, whose feast day was celebrated on the same day as St John Fisher (in the N.O. Liturgical calendar) two days ago, offers this inspiring advice to others facing “cancellation” for adhering to the moral law of God, It was also for himself as he awaited execution:
“A man who suffers in the cause of justice, who chooses to defend the right even to his own hurt, can gain comfort in the clearness of his conscience. Especially one who has been falsely accused of a crime and has had false witnesses rise against him, and who is punished and shamed before the world for it. He may have a hundred times more consolation than pain in his heart. Such are the consolations of a man who abides by the truth and is persecuted for justice during a time when white is called black, and right is called wrong.”
