Chums and Chumps

A lot has happened in the last few days with the Holy Father's rat pack in Rome.

First of all, EVEN George Weigel was willing to write an article confirming the Holy Father's dirty deeds in China.

Listen, I'm as guilty as the next person of contributions to injuries to the Mystical Body of Christ, so I'm not standing on moral high ground when I say the Catholic cufflink armchair warriors cover spiritual crimes and misdemeanors to preserve their apostolates from the wrath and retaliation of the episcopal corrupt. Being chummy with Bishops and Romans at swanky events is of utmost importance to their careers.

For a very long time, decades really, the bishops and Romans were able to diminish the efficacy of exposing corruption by forging a chum and chump club in Catholic social circles.

If your apostolate plays deaf, dumb and blind to the corruption, you are in the chum club. If you write about it, you are a member of the chump club.

Catholic Blogs delivered a lethal blow to the episcopal chum and chump club. The chumps became the champs.

I've been to the swanky events. The chums will privately admit what's happening, but they pay their mortgage with their apostolate, so the public charade must go on.

I'm pleased to see George couldn't stand it and came to Jesus on the assault upon the Mystical Body of Christ in China. But duly note that a chum, even when they do write about the corruption, will never hold the guilty party accountable. It's always mysterious and powerful hobbits surrounding the innocent fool. They use terms like 'chancery' or 'Vatican' or 'Holy See'.

Of course this dynamic can take place. But when a Pope spends five years praising heresy and heretics, appointing and giving them power, whilst slandering, obstructing, removing and alienating faithful Catholics - the problem isn't the hobbits, it's the Pope. The problem is the Holy Father.

When a chum exposes corruption, the Romans and Bishops are forced to mount their defense by attacking the whistleblower. Alas, with the exposition of their execution of Christ in China, the Holy Father and the enablers mounted an attack against Cardinal Zen and the whistleblowers.

The Vatican did not directly mention Cardinal Zen but said criticism of its China policy was "fostering confusion and controversy".

In its response, the Vatican said the Pope was in "constant contact with his collaborators... on Chinese issues".
"It is therefore surprising and regrettable that the contrary is affirmed by people in the Church, thus fostering confusion and controversy,

The corrupt are still living in the glory days when slandering whistleblowers was effective.

The reality is, when the chums are not willing to give them the nudge and the wink, there they stand exposing their own deceitfulness and calumny, telling the world the pope has blood on his hands.

We all know the pope is in constant contact with collaborators and is collaborating with them to force outcomes.

What isn't said is, the persecuted Church has been in constant contact with each other for decades. The internet provided us with means and tools. We know each other well. Communications and more importantly EVIDENCE has built trust. We know who all the players are in every corner of the earth. The corrupt do not realize what transpired through the internet in the last 20 years and so they play their cards in ignorance. Catholic parents worried about what was happening at their local parishes are more skilled than the FBI.

Please. Do don't tell us who the pope is collaborating with - we know all too well.

The Pope is well aware of the effects of his spiritual truancy because he had to penalize, silence and remove bishops teaching the authentic faith for the counterfeit empire he foisted upon his people to succeed.

Thank God, we now have media sources that refuge whistleblowers and Cardinal Zen was able to respond.

Cardinal Joseph Zen has criticized the Vatican’s Secretary of State over comments about the Holy See’s relations with China. Zen, the bishop emeritus of Hong Kong, says Cardinal Pietro Parolin is a “man of little faith” and that he wonders if Parolin knows what “true suffering is.”

In a statement released on Monday, Cardinal Zen addressed the controversy over the Vatican legitimizing excommunicated bishops loyal to Beijing and the forcing of legitimate bishops of the underground Church into retirement.

Zen said that while several close associates have advised him to pray more and to speak less, he wants to “keep talking,” especially because he senses that “before long” he will no longer be able to speak.

“How many nights of suffering will the priests and laity endure, at the thought that they will have to bow down to and obey those bishops who are now illegitimate and excommunicated, but tomorrow will be legitimized by the Holy See, and supported by the government,” he said.

And that is the haunting question that lies before us.

It's physically and truly nauseating what this guy is doing to the Church of Christ. I really have no words to describe the evil that is oozing out of the very Chair of PETER. The evil is beyond description at this point, so much so that you really can't wrap your head around it. And China is not by far the only evil that is staring us in the face. There's also the Chile monstrosity that he has created. And Cardinal Marx with his 'blessing of same sex unions'?? He shouldn't be defrocked like yesterday?? How long Oh Lord?? How long???

Great article!!

Is William Bulter Yeat's "Rough Beast" slowly coming to

And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

Sadly, the trugh is that Pope Francis & his minions are
nothing more than quislings and 5th columnists

Bergoglio is happy to hand the real Catholics in China over to the government to do his dirty work.

This is why Bergoglio dug into Peter's Pence for a donation to Hillary. He was eager for Hillary to persecute the Little Sisters and other Catholics over abortion, gay marriage, etc.

This is why the rat pack in the Vatican hate Trump. He has publicly sworn to protect Catholics from persecution.

Father, the Pope's brazen actions in China have certainly given context to everything he's said and done in the Universal Church and in our families.

You are right about Trump -AND he is making good on his promises to protect us from persecution.

Who could ever have imagined that a POTUS would be a better protector of Christ's Church and people than a sitting pope?

Anonymous - thank you for reminding us of this masterpiece.

Turning and turning in the widening gyre
The falcon cannot hear the falconer;
Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.
Surely some revelation is at hand;
Surely the Second Coming is at hand.
The Second Coming! Hardly are those words out
When a vast image out of Spiritus Mundi
Troubles my sight: a waste of desert sand;
A shape with lion body and the head of a man,
A gaze blank and pitiless as the sun,
Is moving its slow thighs, while all about it
Wind shadows of the indignant desert birds.
The darkness drops again but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?

Good article: De Mattei: The spirit of resistance and love for the Church

Pertinent excerpt:

Today, along these same lines lies Cardinal Zen’s stance of no compromise in regard to Pope Francis’ new Ostpolitik towards Communist China. To those who object, and that it is necessary “to try to find common ground to bridge the decades-old division between the Vatican and China”, Cardinal Zen replies: “But can there ever be anything in “common” with a totalitarian regime? Either you surrender or accept persecution, but remain faithful to yourself (can you imagine an agreement between St. Joseph and Herod?)”. To those who ask him whether he is convinced that the Vatican is selling out the Catholic Church in China, he says: “Decidedly, yes. If they are going in the direction that is obvious in everything they have done in recent months and years.”
