"Uncompromising Catholic Militancy"

[In response to someone who begged him (Saint Pius X) to "go soft" on the Modernists, He retorted]: "Kindness is for fools! They want them to be treated with oil, soap, and caresses but they ought to be beaten with fists! In a duel you don't count or measure the blows, you strike as you can! War is not made with charity, it is a struggle a duel. If Our Lord were not terrible he would not have given an example in this too. See how he treated the Philistines, the sowers of error, the wolves in sheep's clothing, the traitors in the temple. He scourged them with whips!"

Ecclesiastical Approbation

In Today's Catholic World carries the approbation in writing of the (True) Petrine Hierarchy in exile i.e., connected with Pope Gregory XVII. It faithfully adheres to the rules for Catholic Journals mandated by Leo XIII in the Apostolic Constitution Officiorum ac Munerum, January 25, 1897 - so heavily re-stressed by Pius X in Pascendi Dominici Gregis, September 8, 1907.

St. Ignatius of Antioch - "Let no one do anything of concern to the Church without the bishop. Let that be considered a valid Eucharist which is celebrated by the bishop or by one whom he ordains [i.e., a presbyter]. Wherever the bishop appears, let the people be there; just as wherever Jesus Christ is, there is the Catholic Church." (Letter to the Smyrneans 8:2 - 110 A.D.)

(May 21st, Ascension Thursday)

Saint Peter In Judgement

"...the doorkeeper of the of the heavenly kingdom." -St. Hilary of Poitiers

"Can we show too great respect to him whom Jesus Christ has elevated to the sublime dignity of being His other self?" -Fr. F. X. Schouppe, S. J.

St. Cyprian: "There is one God, and one Christ, and there is one Church, and one Chair founded by the voice of the Lord upon a Rock. Another altar cannot be constituted or a new priesthood be made, beside the one altar and the one priesthood. Whosoever gathereth elswhere, scattereth. Whatsoever by human madness is instituted, so that the divine disposition is violated, is adulterous, is impious, is sacrilegious" (Epist. ad Pleb. xl. n. 5).

St. Jerome, Letter to Pope Damasus: "I... am linked in communion with Thy Blessedness, that is, with the Chair of Peter. Upon that Rock I know that the Church is built. Whoso shall eat the Lamb outside this house is profane. If any be not in the ark of Noah, he will perish when the deluge prevails..."

Today's post on this holy feast of Our Blessed Lord's Ascension deals with the most imperative of subjects: The Church's timeless teaching on what is required of the Faithful towards a Pope. Note: a concise extract from Fr. F. X. Schouppe, S. J., on this essential matter, is located at the bottom of this piece. -ED

popeless "catholicism": An Assault to Ones Sensus Catolicus

The schismatic disobedience shown towards a Pope (Pius XII) in the 1950's from the pervert Trent-denying-heretic Fr. Feeney, and the decades "of Love" (Canal poison) exuded upon the Church's immutable (Traditional) Petrine Theology from non-priest Lefebvre - has had a disasterous effect on the flock in regards to the grave matter of respecting and obeying a (valid) Pope. In consequence to their Sins of Pride, the V-2 Sect Phony "traditionalists" have years ago, and the ephemeral "Sedevacantist (False) Thesis" adherents are currently losing their spiritual understanding, by St. Peter's Just (Perpetual) Sword.

St. Ambrose on St. Peter (And His Successors) Swift Justice for the Obstinate:

"he (the Vicar of Christ) will cut off the inward ear..."

st. ambrose quote

"Whoso shall eat the Lamb outside this house (The True Petrine Hierarchy today) is profane..." -St. Jerome

The absurd idea(s) that attending a "Latin mass" in union with a heretical antipope - or even the latest (anti-papal) mutation/fallout from Lucifierian Lefebvrism pitched by the "Sedevacantist (False) Thesis" adherents - that attending a "Latin mass" in union(?) with (1.)no pope, is all that is required to: "claim" the same (2.)Faith of blessed Peter, to prove their right to the Title of Catholic and to be 100% (without scrupple) eligible to reign with God's Heroes forever?? hopefully raises a flag or three with a souls sensus catolicus (catholic sense).

(1.) Coupled with absolutely *no effort by the Sedevacantists (sect?) to restore Peter to the Throne... do not the schismatic "Orthodox" also confect the eucharist in like damning fashion?

*The laic Donald Sanborn (the "heroic" "spokesperson" it seems, for this novel popeless "catholicism") *wrote around the time of (the laic V-2 sect) Williamson's published remarks on the stealthy perennial Enemy of the Church:

*"Our single goal consists of rolling back the changes of Vatican II, nothing more and nothing less... It is against the Modernists that our war should be fought; we should not be sidetracked by an obsession with Jews." ("Logical Chickens Coming Home to Roost: A Commentary on Recent Events in The Society Of Saint Pius X", by [...] Donald J. Sanborn, 03/07/2009)

"...the modernist principles... were invented by Jews... to divest the people of their defenses against Judaism..."

The Church Approved La Civilta Cattolica, 1890 A.D., "On the Jewish Question in Europe: The Causes, The Effects, The Remedies":
"And in effect, the modernist principles, that is, those called the rights of man, were invented by Jews, in order to divest the people and
their governments of their defenses against Judaism, and in order to multiply the advantage of this faction [the Jews], which forms the
offensive force. Having acquired absolute civil liberty and equality in every sphere with Christian nationalities, thus was the dam opened, and so,
a devastating torrent let loose; in a short time they penetrated everything, took over everything: gold, business, the public purse (or stock market), the highest appointments in political administrations, the army and the diplomatic corps; public education, the press..."
(And through sheer treachery and violence via their Marrano & Contriver infiltrators, usurped the sacred Papal Throne. -ED)

"...the infiltrators, denounced by Pius X, have invaded the hierarchy and ...captured the Chair of Peter."

papa pio X
The Heroic Pope St. Pius X

"In their Messianic materialism, the directors of Judaism dream of an implementation of world government wherein they are the masters and we are
the slaves. They recognize that the insurmountable wall that lies in the path of this program of conquest is the religious wall...in particular, the wall of the Catholic Church. By experience, they (the Deicides) know that slander, prisons, even death, does not crush the faith... it only enlivens it.
They know very well that in order to destroy the Church of Jesus Christ they have only one road left... INFILTRATION. Thus, the case of Anacletus II
is repeating itself; the infiltrators, denounced by Pius X, have invaded the hierarchy and have even captured the Chair of Peter."
(Fr. Joaquin Saenz Y Arriaga, PHD., The New Montinian Church 1971 A.D.)

experientia docet stultos (experience teaches fools)

Comment from The Editor of TCW on Mr. Sanborn's doomed "battle" plan: No, we must more than ever as the Church has always taught carefully study the Marrano Enemy in an intelligent methodical manner (brilliantly shown us by Pio Nono's mandated journal La Civilta Cattolica [The Catholic Civilization]) so as to be more skilled in unmasking and defeating him! Sanborn's "rallying cry" is again a refinement/mutation of anti-papal Lefebvrism (Mr. Lefebvre pushed the anarchist "jurisdiction is moot 'Traditional' 62 Missal 'solution'" - Mr. Sanborn advocates the anarchist "jurisdiction is moot Pius V Missal 'single goal... nothing more' 'solution'"). It is really a chicken-way-out of facing the Duty of combating Judeo/Masonry -The Cause (with ITS JEWISH [Modernist] CONTRIVERS) of this Horrific crisis via its criminal usurpation of the Papal Throne on October 26, 1958 from Christ's Lawful Vicar, Pope Gregory XVII. Does not a True Catholic welcome the opportunity to fight for the greatest and holiest cause on earth - the true restoration of Peter on the Throne?!?

“He who can never love Christ enough, will never give up fighting against those who hate Him.” -St. John Chrysostom

(2.) Ex Cathedra On The Permanence of the Primacy of Blessed Peter in the Roman Pontiff: "Therefore, if anyone says that it is not by the institution of Christ the Lord Himself (that is to say, by divine law) that blessed Peter should have *perpetual successors in the primacy over the whole Church; or that the Roman Pontiff is not the successor of blessed Peter in this primacy: let him be anathema. (The Vatican Council, Fourth Session, First Dogmatic Constitution on the Church of Christ, 2,5 On The Permanence of the Primacy of Blessed Peter in the Roman Pontiff -July 18th, 1870 A.D.)

*General Council of Ephesus: "The Prince and Head of the Apostles, . . . who even until now, and always, Lives and Judges in his Successors."

"...and *derision would be a keener and more deadly weapon against Christianity than persecution."

the ultramontane cardinal manning
Cardinal Manning
Ultramontane Devotee to The Chair of Peter: His Excellency helped formulate the official wording
used for the definition of the Dogma of Papal Infallibility, declared at the Vatican Council (1869-1870)

"For twenty years the anti-Christian seditions of all the world have aimed at the overthrow of Rome, at the destruction of the Temporal Power first, of the Spiritual Power afterwards. They hate the Temporal Power much, but they hate the Spiritual Power more. They think that if it were possible to destroy the Temporal Power, the Pontiffs would be either persecuted or subject. A Pope subject to a Royal Supremacy (an anti-Catholic "government" -ED) would reduce the Spiritual Supremacy to absurdity; and derision would be a keener and more deadly weapon against Christianity than persecution. For this end, therefore, all the spirits of anti-Christian revolution have united against Rome. They have poisoned the public opinion of Europe against it by lying, or by truths perverted, which are the worst of lies." (Words of Cardinal Manning, 1867 A.D., under St. Peter's 251st Perpetual Successor [Pope Pius IX's] Reign)

The "Key" to this Crisis

santa caterina siena
"Sweet Christ on earth," was the title St. Catherine of Siena loved to give to the successor of St. Peter

"He who rebels against our Father (the Pope) is condemned to death..."

"Even if the Pope were Satan incarnate, we ought not to raise our heads against him, but calmly lie down to rest on his bosom. He who rebels against our Father (the Pope) is condemned to death, for that which we do to him we do to Christ: we honour Christ if we honour the Pope; we dishonour Christ if we dishonour the Pope. I know very well that many defend themselves by boasting: "They are so corrupt, and work all manner of evil!" But God has commanded that, even if the priests, the pastors, and Christ-on-earth were incarnate devils, we be obedient and subject to them, not for their sakes, but for the sake of God, and out of obedience to Him. -Saint Catherine of Siena (1347-1380 A.D.)

Hallowed voices in the late 1800's were lamenting the decrease in charity by the Faithful towards the Pope in their day and foretold the grave consequences if this lack of love for Christ continued. This was seconded by Our Lady at the turn of the 19th Century in Fatima, Portugal when she told the flock (via the shepherd children) to: Make sacrifices for (and) pray much for the Holy Father!

It is the Editor's view that this, the greatest scourge ever on the Barque of Peter (The Catholic Church)
has its primary cause in a lack of devotion by the faithful and *clergy to the Papacy.

*The current plague of the derisive "no hope of pope" sedevacantist movement (paralysis) is noted above. In a historical context the example of many of the Pre-Vatican II American Bishop's calculated criminal coldness or worse indifference to the sacred Office of the Papacy is addressed in this extract from The Veritas Staff:

"...it must be noted that in whatever country the influence of Jewry and its Freemasonry is strong, those bishops are weak on the protective needs of Holy Church in the constancy and permanency of Her judgments.

"Take America for example. American prelates, in disobedience to Popes, have kept priests from reading and teaching from their pulpits the papal encyclicals because their contents might offend Jews and Protestant Masons. These encyclicals would have early alerted the Catholic populace to the dangerous enemy in our land and also made known the duty to overcome them; but for the sake of false peace, American bishops held their tongues, the people remained in their ignorance, all the while sopping up the enemy's anti-Christian mentality and ideas through osmosis. Knowingly or unknowingly, the actions and speech of American bishops have all too often mirrored the sophistries of the Synagogue and the Grand Lodges. What the people see and hear their bishops do and speak, they will imitate." (From: "Death Blows To Vatican Council II", by The Veritas Staff, 1979 A.D.)

"Our enemies have on this been under no misapprehensions. From the outset, and with the greatest clearness of vision, they determined on
their objective; first to separate you from Us and the Chair of Peter, and then to sow disorder among you."
-His Holiness, Pope St. Pius X

l agneau mystique
"L Agneau Mystique" by Van Eyck

"We declare, say, define and proclaim to every human creature that they by necessity for salvation are entirely subject to the Roman Pontiff."
-Pope Boniface VIII, Unam Sanctum Nov. 18, 1302 ex cathedra (from The Chair)

Love, Respect, Obedience, Assistance

(Duty of The Faithful Towards a Pope)


The Rev. Fr. F. X. Schouppe, S. J.

"These sacrilegeous spoliations have deprived him of the patrimony of St. Peter, of his revenues, of his independence..." -Fr. Schouppe

(From: "Short Sermons For The Low Masses Of Sunday. Comprising In Four Series A Methodical Exposition of Christian Doctrine", 1883 Impr.)

"The Sovereign Pontiff, the visible Head of the Church, is called the Common Father of the faithful. This title is justly his: (1) because the faithful are the children of God born to Him in Baptism, and forming a family of which the Pope is the Head and Father; (2) because he loves us as a most tender father, as Jesus Christ Himself.

This is why our Saviour when confiding to Peter His lambs and His sheep, required of him that he should love them as a good Shepherd, ready to give his life for his flock; (3) because in as far as is in his power he does for us all that the best of fathers does for his children: he instructs us by his word, he nourishes our souls with the Sacraments, he defends us by his prayers from our enemies, he leads us to our eternal inheritance.

If the Pope is truly our Father and bestows on us unceasingly the most precious gifts, what are our obligations with respect to him? We owe our Holy Father all that children owe to the best and most august of fathers: love, respect, obedience, and assistance in his necessities.

1. Love. A child who loves his father is pleased to think of him, to speak of him, to pray for him, to look at his portrait, and to receive his paternal benediction. Joseph, in the midst of the splendors of Egypt, forgot not his father, Jacob. I am Joseph, said he to his brethren; is my father yet living? Make haste and go to my father and say to him: come down to me, linger not. And when Jacob arrived in Egypt, Joseph went forth in his chariot to meet him: and seeing him, he fell upon his neck, and embracing him wept. Such should be our love for our holy Father the Pope, we should give him every proof of a most devoted love, particularly now when he receives naught but abuse from so many unnatural children.

2. Respect. If the dignity of a simple priest is so sublime that it surpasses that of the angels, what shall we say of the dignity of the Vicar of Jesus Christ?

St. Francis of Assisium said that should he meet an angel and a priest he would salute the priest before the angel, as being the more exalted of the two.

St. Francis of Sales speaks of a venerable priest, to whom God vouchsafed the favor of seeing his guardian angel under a sensible form, and says this heavenly spirit ceded to him the right of way in deference to his sacerdotal character. The emperor Maximus having invited to his table the Bishop St. Martin, sat at his side, and ordered that the cup which was offered to his Majesty should be first presented to the Bishop, as the anointed of the Lord.

What then should be our respect for the Pope, who is the Bishop of bishops?

Can we show too great respect to him whom Jesus Christ has elevated to the sublime dignity of being His other self?

3. Obedience. Who does not comprehend that we owe the Sovereign Pontiff the most unquestionable obedience, since it is to him, as the highest authority on earth, that these words refer: he who hears you, hears me.

Now, we practise this obedience towards our holy Father by faithfully observing the laws of the Church which are his, and by obeying our immediate pastors who govern us in his name.

Council of Constance 1415 A.D., in which forty-five articles of *Wickliffe (the father of Protestantism) were condemned:

*"Every Deacon and Priest has the power of preaching the Word of God, without any authority from the Holy See or a Catholic Bishop."

4. Assistance. What assistance do we owe our holy Father? This question is almost unnecessary in our day. We see him despoiled of the resources which Providence, during more than twelve centuries, had bestowed on the Popes to enable them to exercise with the necessary liberty and dignity their august functions. These sacrilegeous spoliations have deprived him of the patrimony of St. Peter, of his revenues, of his independence, and of the wise and many assistants of which he has need to fulfil his Apostolic ministry. Should we not then by our protests, by our alms, by our prayers, by every means in our power, succor the Father of our souls in his present distress?

These are the duties which we have to fulfil, as true children of the Church, in reference to our holy Father, the Pope. Let us then fulfil these duties, and we shall share in those blessings which God has promised to children who honor their parents. Honor thy father and thy mother, that it may be well with thee, and thou mayst live long on the earth. Yes, if we honor our Father by excellence, we shall be blessed in this life, and eternally blessed in the life to come."


"In the Passion of Christ nobody stand up to say one word to protect Our Lord Jesus Christ. In the Passion of the Church,
who stand up to protect the true pope Gregory XVII in Exile? Nobody."
-Fr. Khoat Tran (written statement 05/20/06)

Venerable Anne Catherine Emmerich (1774-1824 A.D.) Augustinian Nun, Stigmatist "Last night I was taken to Rome (in vision) where the Holy Father, plunged in affliction, is still concealed in order to elude dangerous exigencies. He is very feeble, quite worn out by distress, anxiety, and prayer. His chief reason for lying concealed is because he can now trust so few... The Pope is so feeble that he can no longer walk alone." (Prophetic Vision of Ven. Anne Catherine Emmerich, Nun, Stigmatist 1822)

"The Church will be in eclipse..." -Our Lady of La Salette

Pope Gregory XVII
This historic photograph was taken by Fr. Khoat on June 15th, 1988 at the Istituto Ravasco convent in Rome: documenting the third clandestine meeting Fr. Khoat had with the suffering Pontiff foretold at both Fatima and La Salette. His Holiness is shown formulating/implementing a strategy to "save" the True Petrine Hierarchy of the Roman Catholic Church

Pope Gregory XVII (an expert in doctrine), then acted by formulating a detailed Continuance of Papacy Plan from 1988 to 1989,
which included creating Cardinals (and designating a Camerlengo) who could convene a lawful conclave in God's perfect timing.

"Hail Gregory XVII, Most Holy Father, *Necessary Pastor." -The Monk of Padua, 18th Century

(The Monk of Padua is noted for his prophesies of the last Popes in time: Gregory XVII is the 18th out of 20 on his manuscript/list)

"We are very guilty! In consequence of this, it is *necessary that a very great and terrible scourge should come to revive our faith, and to restore to us our very reason, which we have almost entirely lost. Wicked men are devoured by a thirst for exercising their cruelty; but when they shall have reached the uttermost point of barbarity, God Himself shall extend His hand to stop them, and very soon after, a complete change shall be effected in all surviving persons. ...Let us pray; let us pray. God does not wish to chastise us severely. He speaks to us in so many, so many ways to make us return to Him. How long shall we remain stubborn? Let us pray, let us pray; let us never cease praying and doing penance. Let us pray for our Holy Father the Pope, the only light for the faithful in these times of darkness. ..." (Additional words of Melanie Calvat, Shepherdess of La Salette, France)
