Abp. Viganò issues ‘severe warning’ to Pope Francis in wake of his support for Fr. James Martin

The one who sits in Rome is surrounded by immoral persons who wink at LGBTQ+ movements and hypocritically simulate a welcome and an inclusivity that betrays their choice of field and their sinful tendencies. There is no more courage; there is no more fidelity to Christ…’

Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò speaks at the Rome Life Forum in May 2018.

By Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò

Know that the Lord is God:
He made us, and not we ourselves.

Ps 99:3

The enemies of our soul are always the same, and the snares they set for us are always the same. The world, with its seductions; the flesh, corrupted by original sin and inclined to evil; and the Devil, the eternal enemy of our salvation who uses the flesh to besiege us. Two external enemies and one internal one, always ready to make us fall in a moment of distraction, of weakness. These spiritual enemies accompany each one of us from infancy to old age, and all of humanity down the generations and ages.

The allies we can count on to defeat the world, the flesh, and the Devil are the Grace of God, the frequent reception of the Sacraments, the exercise of the Virtues, prayer, penance, the consideration of the Last Things, meditation on the Passion of the Lord, and living in His presence.

In this rebellious and de-Christianized age, in which society not only does not help us in the pursuit of our ultimate goal but actually does everything to drive us away from it, civil authority makes us follow the world, indulge the desires of the flesh, and serve the Enemy of the human race. It is a perverse  and perverting authority, which has failed in its duty to rule and govern the social body in order to lead individuals to eternal salvation. On the contrary, it denies eternal salvation, rejects the Divine Author, and adores the Adversary.

It is therefore no wonder if this apostate modernity, in which unlawful action is the norm and vice is offered as an example to be imitated, wants to cancel every trace of God and the Good in society and in individuals, making a hellish pact with the world, the flesh and the devil. This is what we see happening in the brazen promotion of sodomy, the perversion of vice in all of its most abject forms, and in the derision, delegitimization and condemnation of purity, righteousness, and virtue.

But if today our daily struggle against our enemies must also include a titanic effort to fight against the State as well, which we ought to be able to consider our friend but which instead works to corrupt us from an early age, it is painful and tragic to see other traitors and mercenaries join in this siege: wicked Shepherds who abuse the sacred authority that they have received from Our Lord to push us towards damnation, to convince us that what up until yesterday was considered sinful and unworthy of those who have been redeemed by the Blood of Christ has now become licit and good.

The worldly spirit, the enslavement to concupiscence, and – what is even more grave – the refusal to fight against the Evil One have infected a large part of the Hierarchy of the Catholic Church, up to its highest levels, making it the enemy of God, His Law, and our souls. As has happened with civil authority, so also religious authority has abdicated its proper role, disowning the very purpose for which it was willed by Divine Providence.

The novelty of this perversion of authority, which heralds the epochal clash of the End Times, lies precisely in the corruption of the Shepherds and in the fact that the individual members of the faithful, as a flock without a leader, find themselves having to heroically resist an assault on the Citadel on several fronts, in which they have been abandoned by their leaders, who are opening the gates and allowing the enemy hordes to enter in order to exterminate us.

The discussion about the proposed Zan bill, the imposition of LGBTQ+ ideology, and the indoctrination of gender theory in Italy follows a targeted plan organized on the global level, which in many nations has already been brought to completion. Nations in which, even after two centuries of revolutions, the imprint of Catholicism had survived in the social fabric, have now become completely paganized. Rainbow flags fly not only on the front of public institutions but even on the facades of Cathedrals, the balconies of Bishops’ residences, and even inside churches.

In recent times – even only thirty years ago – it was said by some that in order to support a minority of people misled by vice and to defend them from discrimination, the State had to intervene with forms of protection and guarantees of their liberty. In hindsight, this was an unreasonable and illogical statement, because the freedom of the human person consists in adherence of the will to the good to which its nature is ordered and in the pursuit of its material and supernatural purpose. But in the great deception with which the Devil has always tried to entice man, that apparent pretext has seduced many. It seemed that courage was needed to claim the right to vice and sin against the cruel harshness of a “respectable majority” still tied to the precepts of Religion. The Pride of being diverse in a world of equals was claimed, of having the right to a space for vice in a “virtuous world.”

In those years, the Church still raised, perhaps with less conviction but still always faithful to her divine mandate, the voice of the immutable Magisterium to condemn the legitimization of intrinsically disordered behaviors. Attentive to the eternal salvation of souls, she saw what disasters would befall society with the approval of lifestyles totally antithetical to the Natural Law, the Commandments, and the Gospel. The Shepherds knew how to be courageous defenders of the Good, and the Popes were not afraid to become the object of indecorous attacks from those who saw in them the katechon which prevented the definitive corruption of the world and the establishment of the Reign of the Antichrist.

Today that heroic battle – which we have learned is already weakened by an extensive internal corruption of Bishops and priests – seems to no longer make sense, just as the teaching of Sacred Scripture, the Fathers of the Church, and the Roman Pontiffs no longer seems to make sense. The one who sits in Rome is surrounded by immoral persons who wink at LGBTQ+ movements and hypocritically simulate a welcome and an inclusivity that betrays their choice of field and their sinful tendencies. There is no more courage; there is no more fidelity to Christ; and it has reached the point of insinuating that, if Bergoglio was able to change the doctrine on capital punishment – an unheard of and absolutely impossible thing – he will certainly also be able to make sodomy licit in the name of a charity which has nothing Catholic about it and which is repugnant to Divine Revelation.

The blasphemous processions that parade through the streets of the capitals of the world, and which have reached the point of blaspheming and wickedly mocking the Sacrifice of Our Lord in the Holy City consecrated by the blood of the Apostles Peter and Paul, are greeted by the mercenaries of the conciliar sect, which is silent before the sacrilegious blessings of homosexual couples but condemns those who want to remain faithful to the Savior’s teaching as “rigid.” And while the good Bishops and priests are daily confronted with the demolition that comes from above, we see published the enchanting and seductive words written by Bergoglio to James Martin, S.J., in support of a perverse and perverting ideology that offends the Majesty of God and humiliates the mission of the Church and the sacred authority of the Vicar of Christ.

As a Successor of the Apostles and a Teacher of the Faith, in a spirit of true communion with the See of Most Blessed Peter and with the Holy Church of God, I address a severe warning to them, recalling that their authority derives from Jesus Christ, and that it has strength and value only if it remains oriented to the end for which He has constituted it. Let these Shepherds consider the scandals which they cause to the faithful and the simple, and the wounds they inflict on the tormented ecclesial body – scandals and wounds for which they will have to answer to Divine Justice on the day of their Particular Judgment and also before the entire human race on the day of the Universal Judgment.

I exhort the many members of the faithful who are scandalized and bewildered by the apostasy of the Shepherds to multiply their prayers with a supernatural spirit of prayer and penance, imploring the Lord that He may deign to convert the mercenaries, leading them back to Himself and to fidelity to His divine teaching. Let us pray to the Most Pure Mother, the Virgin of Virgins, to inspire sentiments of repentance in the ministers who have been corrupted by sin and impurity, so that they may consider the horror of their sins and the terrible pains that await them: may they take refuge in the Most Holy Wounds of Christ and be purified by the laver of the Blood of the Lamb.

To our brothers seduced by the world, the flesh, and the Devil, I address a heartfelt appeal, so that they may understand that there is no pride in offending God, in knowingly contributing to the torments of His Passion, in perverting one’s own nature and wickedly refusing the salvation that He won from His Father through his Death on the Wood of the Cross. Make your weaknesses an occasion of holiness, a reason for conversion, an opportunity to make the greatness of God shine forth in your lives. Do not allow yourselves to be deceived by an Enemy who today seems to indulge your vices with the sole intention of stealing your souls and damning you for eternity. Be proud, truly proud: not of enslavement to sin and perversion, but of having known how to resist the seductions of the flesh for love of Jesus Christ. Think of your immortal soul, for which the Lord did not hesitate to suffer and die. Pray! Pray to Mary Most Holy, that she may intercede with Her Divine Son, giving you the Grace to resist, to fight, and to conquer. Offer your sufferings, your sacrifices, and your fasting to the Lord in order to obtain that freedom from Evil which the Seducer wants to take away from you by deceit. This will be your true pride, and ours as well.

  1. Reblogged this on Zero Lift-Off and commented:
    This is where we have arrived as a human civilization with superpowers pointing nukes at each other and NWO elitists plotting to take over the planet, for them to become the totalitarian tyrants of the human race only to set the stage for the coming Antichrist who will enslave the children of God. Already we see the massive decay of governmental systems a world of politics that is so corrupted citizen’s votes don’t even matter, because they the controllers can flip an election with manipulated voting systems, MSM running a propaganda narrative to brainwash and sway the public, along social media platforms doing the same and cancelling anyone that doesn’t go along for the ride! Even if it weren’t for all this trickery and smoke and mirrors the Deep State Swamp Establishment Machine is only playing us all for fools; making sure they get the people they want and can control to run for office, like Manchurian Candidate on Auto-play; in place, and then making it happen according to the Agenda! It just happened here in America while a global Pandemic Charade ensued planned by these same nefarious agents of hell; to get us into Lock-downs Mode!

    Then I read today how a Trans-man is in place to most likely win the Miss America contest in Las Vegas Nevada, and perhaps get installed of course as Miss Universe down the line; the extreme left agenda in overdrive. Then some other Trans-man went into an all-female salon to get his bikini waxing just another so called normal day in this screwed up world! So tell me have the floods been open too long and too much raw sewage flowed down our streets and into our cities and homes to now overwhelmed societies poisoning minds and heart with twisted, perverted and sinful heathens; so now they are in charge and becoming the new and only normal that “the majority must have to accept and suck it up and shut up,” because the ACLU and Leftist’s Courts say so?

    Early today I read a new posting or actually watched Fr. Goring speaking about Heaven and Hell and how many are saying it doesn’t matter now, or even a fraud heretic pope says there is no hell and I guess we all can do whatever and no consequences apply in this scenario! Because everyone not only gets an award in grade school for showing up, even if an underachiever, but now we all get through the narrow gate just by being born! Although I have to give it to Bergoglio, that he may just be playing the cards the way he sees it going knowing that we don’t need a hell after all; we are going to make one right here on earth!

    So it’s looking like the “not being Lukewarm” bit won’t matter either in this upside down Helter-skelter world we’ve created for ourselves; a world where nothing is scared anymore, and it appears that anything goes too!

    I feel sad and kind of rotten to speak out now anymore, because I know I absolutely look like I’m attacking whatever comes into my field of view; while just being too morose or depressing others; but then I say to myself so is it better to just shut up, and walk away from humanity all together; figuring that it’s not my problem and I had enough? I can’t swallow that idea too long, because then I feel guilty of being one of the people I complain about; that for decades didn’t do much other than go along to get along, and allowed our world to be overrun with “fringe” or “far leftist putrid agendas,” because most people either didn’t care or were too busy just trying to have a good time! So, hold on, I guess it’s built into me and I have to speak up hoping it makes a modicum of difference, to maybe one person who might awaken to the full reality before they get sucked down the drain with so many others. Then I maybe did make a difference in the end!

    But, then I get to this point where I read another of your great articles that blows me away! I get inspired, I cry, I say thank you God for talking to us and that some are listening being directed by the Holy Spirit to follow in accordance with our Heavenly father’s will! I say to myself, I’m so unworthy, and a sack of manure, and I wish I were a highly magnanimous person in God’s view, but I can’t because I feel shame, and know I should have done far better in this world, it makes me cry to let Him down! But, then I know from folks like these here, who are saying things like this, that I will quote, which is exactly word for word what I had been thinking over the last 12 hours and some of these words I published myself as well.

    “The blasphemous processions that parade through the streets of the capitals of the world, and which have reached the point of blaspheming and wickedly mocking the Sacrifice of Our Lord in the Holy City consecrated by the blood of the Apostles Peter and Paul, are greeted by the mercenaries of the conciliar sect, which is silent before the sacrilegious blessings of homosexual couples but condemns those who want to remain faithful to the Savior’s teaching as “rigid.” And while the good Bishops and priests are daily confronted with the demolition that comes from above, we see published the enchanting and seductive words written by Bergoglio to James Martin, S.J., in support of a perverse and perverting ideology that offends the Majesty of God and humiliates the mission of the Church and the sacred authority of the Vicar of Christ.”

    This tells me God is not abandoning us and we must remain vigilant in order to carry out His will and this is a “God Send” letting us know that this scripture I now quote; it is the guide post by which we must live and carry on daily not our own thinking or capabilities, like I sometimes try to do.

    “Trust in the LORD with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6

    I see a benefit in this for sure and just simply now merging my writings of earlier today right here at this juncture, in this fine truthful article, will make a difference somewhere; for someone. Amen.

    I insert this excerpt as the so called tease in news to just show you how this parallels so perfectly and then I will leave the link to the article for your complete examination to I hope, give you any help in seeing God speaking to us; and I pray you will listen to Him always! Thank you.

    “I’ve said for some years now how Bergoglio is a counterfeit Pope and not advocating as a true Vicar of Christ but is a renegade heretic! He a good buddy in a sense to Biden and Pelosi actually having promoted the election of Biden and backed him in word and deed, so is a NWO accomplice; who also has said there is no hell! Just as many in the new age thinkers club promote, saying we all die and go to God and everything is going to be just dandy! Why did Jesus God Himself go to all the bother then, and if He said all the things He did in Scriptures, then says later it was what a Big Ruse and I was kidding? People; you all I hope see that this deception is so rampant and deeply embedded into our lifestyle and culture; what the wonderful Saint John Paul II called the “Culture of Death” that we now are living in wasn’t just a cliché or his talking off the cuff! It really is just that, and its allowing the Devil to have a field day and pull so many away from Jesus; but, that too tells us this is the End Time.”
