blast from the past — Bergoglio interview of 2007



What I would have said at the Consistory
An interview with Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, 
Archbishop of Buenos Aires conducted by Stefania Falasca

Interview with Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio by Sefania Falasca
«I must return», he repeats. Not that he doesn’t like the atmosphere of Rome. But he misses that of Buenos Aires. His diocese. He calls it «Esposa». Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, Archbishop of Buenos Aires, always makes lightning visits to Rome. But this time an attack of sciatica has forced him to prolong his stay in the Eternal City for some days of rest. And what is more, by an irony of circumstances, he had to miss the occasion for which he crossed the ocean, the meeting with the Pope and all the cardinals gathered in Consistory. 
His company is never far away. He tells us how the Aparecida Conference went, where he chaired the editorial committee for the concluding document. He confides that his speech at the Consistory would have been on that. And this is what he had to say about it in that light, but acute and incisive, way of talking that throws one off track and takes one by surprise. 
SEFANIA FALASCA:  Your Eminence, you would have spoken about Aparecida at the Consistory. What for you characterized the fifth General Conference of the Latin American bishops?
JORGE MARIO BERGOGLIO: The Aparecida Conference was a moment of grace for the Latin American Church.
FALASCA: Yet there was no lack of argument about the closing document… 
BERGOGLIO: The concluding document, that was an act of the Magisterium of the Latin American Church, underwent no manipulation. Neither from us nor from the Holy See. There were some small re-touchings of style, of form, and some things that were removed on the one hand were put back in on the other. The substance, therefore, remained identical, it was absolutely not changed. The reason for that is because the atmosphere leading up to the editing of the document was an atmosphere of genuine and brotherly collaboration, of mutual respect, that characterized the work, work that moved from below upwards, not vice versa. To understand the atmosphere one has to look at what for me were the three key points, the three “pillars” of Aparecida. The first of which was precisely that: from below upwards. It’s perhaps the first time that one of our General Conferences didn’t start out from a pre-prepared basic text but from open dialogue, that had already begun earlier between the CELAM and the Episcopal Conferences, and that has since continued.
FALASCA: But wasn’t the orientation of the Conference already set out by the opening speech by Benedict XVI? 
BERGOGLIO: The Pope gave general indications on the problems of Latin America, and then left it open: up to you, up to you! That was very grand on the Pope’s part. The Conference began with statements from the twenty-three presidents of the various Episcopal Conferences and from that discussion opened on the topics in the different groups. The editing phases of the document were also open to the contributions of all. At the moment of gathering the “modes”, for the second and third editing, 2,240 arrived! Our stance was that of receiving everything that came from below, from the People of God, and to make not so much a synthesis, as a harmony.
FALASCA: An arduous task… 
BERGOGLIO: “Harmony”, I said, that’s the right word. In the Church harmony is the work of the Holy Spirit. One of the early Fathers of the Church wrote that the Holy Spirit «ipse harmonia est», He Himself is harmony. He alone is author at the same time of plurality and of unity. Only the Spirit can stir diversity, plurality, multiplicity and at the same time make unity. Because when it’s us who decide to create diversity we create schisms and when it’s us who decide to create unity we create uniformity, leveling. At Aparecida we collaborated in this work of the Holy Spirit. And the document, if one reads it well, one sees that it has circular, harmonic thinking. The harmony is perceived not as passive, but creative, that urges creativity because it is of the Spirit.
FALASCA: And what is the second key point? 
BERGOGLIO: It’s the first time that a Conference of Latin American bishops has gathered in a Marian shrine. And the place in itself already speaks all the meaning. Every morning we recited lauds, we celebrated mass together with the pilgrims, the believers. On Saturday or Sunday there were two thousand, five thousand. Celebrating the Eucharist together with the people is different from celebrating it amongst us bishops separately. That gave us a live sense of belonging to our people, of the Church that goes forward as People of God, of us bishops as its servants. The work of the Conference then went on in a hall below the sanctuary. And from there one continued to hear the prayers, the hymns of the faithful… In the final document there is a point that concerns popular piety. They are very fine pages. And I believe, indeed I am sure, that they were inspired precisely by that. After those contained in the Evangelii nuntiandi, they are the finest pages written on popular piety in a document of the Church. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the Aparecida document is the Evangelii nuntiandi of Latin America, it is like the Evangelii nuntiandi.
FALASCA: The Evangelii nuntiandi is an apostolic exhortation about the missionary spirit. 
BERGOGLIO: Exactly. There’s a close similarity also in that. And here I come to the third point. The Aparecida document isn’t sufficient to itself, it doesn’t close, it is not the last step, because the final opening is to the mission. The announcing and the testimony of the disciples. To remain faithful we need to go outside. Remaining faithful one goes out. That is what Aparecida says at bottom. That it is the heart of the mission.
FALASCA: Can you explain the image further? 
BERGOGLIO: Staying, remaining faithful implies an outgoing. Precisely if one remains in the Lord one goes out of oneself. Paradoxically precisely because one remains, precisely if one is faithful one changes. One does not remain faithful, like the traditionalists or the fundamentalists, to the letter. Fidelity is always a change, a blossoming, a growth. The Lord brings about a change in those who are faithful to Him. That is Catholic doctrine. Saint Vincent of Lerins makes the comparison between the biologic development of the person, between the person who grows, and the Tradition which, in handing on the depositum fidei from one age to another, grows and consolidates with the passage of time: «Ut annis scilicet consolidetur, dilatetur tempore, sublimetur aetate». 
FALASCA: Is this what you would have said at the Consistory? 
BERGOGLIO: Yes. I would have spoken about these three key points. 
FALASCA: Nothing else? 
BERGOGLIO: Nothing else… No, perhaps I would have mentioned two things of which there is need in this moment, there is more need: mercy, mercy and apostolic courage. 
FALASCA: What do they mean to you? 
BERGOGLIO: To me apostolic courage is disseminating. Disseminating the Word. Giving it to that man and to that woman for whom it was bestowed. Giving them the beauty of the Gospel, the amazement of the encounter with Jesus… and leaving it to the Holy Spirit to do the rest. It is the Lord, says the Gospel, who makes the seed spring and bear fruit. 
FALASCA: In short, it is the Holy Spirit who performs the mission. 
BERGOGLIO: The early theologians said: the soul is a kind of sailing boat, the Holy Spirit is the wind that blows in the sail, to send it on its way, the impulses and the force of the wind are the gifts of the Spirit. Without His drive, without His grace, we don’t go ahead. The Holy Spirit lets us enter the mystery of God and saves us from the danger of a gnostic Church and from the danger of a self-referential Church, leading us to the mission. 
FALASCA: That means also overthrowing all your functionalist solutions, your consolidated plans and pastoral systems … 
BERGOGLIO: I didn’t say that pastoral systems are useless. On the contrary. In itself everything that leads by the paths of God is good. I have told my priests: «Do everything you should, you know your duties as ministers, take your responsibilities and then leave the door open». Our sociologists of religion tell us that the influence of a parish has a radius of six hundred meters. In Buenos Aires there are about two thousand meters between one parish and the next. So I then told the priests: «If you can, rent a garage and, if you find some willing layman, let him go there! Let him be with those people a bit, do a little catechesis and even give communion if they ask him». A parish priest said to me: «But Father, if we do this the people then won’t come to church». «But why?» I asked him: «Do they come to mass now?» «No», he answered. And so! Coming out of oneself is also coming out from the fenced garden of one’s own convictions, considered irremovable, if they risk becoming an obstacle, if they close the horizon that is also of God. 
FALASCA: This is valid also for lay people… 
BERGOGLIO: Their clericalization is a problem. The priests clericalize the laity and the laity beg us to be clericalized… It really is sinful abetment. And to think that baptism alone could suffice. I’m thinking of those Christian communities in Japan that remained without priests for more than two hundred years. When the missionaries returned they found them all baptized, all validly married for the Church and all their dead had had a Catholic funeral. The faith had remained intact through the gifts of grace that had gladdened the life of a laity who had received only baptism and had also lived their apostolic mission in virtue of baptism alone. One must not be afraid of depending only on His tenderness… Do you know the biblical episode of the prophet Jonah? 
FALASCA: I don’t remember it. Tell us. 
BERGOGLIO: Jonah had everything clear. He had clear ideas about God, very clear ideas about good and evil. On what God does and on what He wants, on who was faithful to the Covenant and who instead was outside the Covenant. He had the recipe for being a good prophet. God broke into his life like a torrent. He sent him to Nineveh. Nineveh was the symbol of all the separated, the lost, of all the peripheries of humanity. Of all those who are outside, forlorn. Jonah saw that the task set on him was only to tell all those people that the arms of God were still open, that the patience of God was there and waiting, to heal them with His forgiveness and nourish them with His tenderness. Only for that had God sent him. He sent him to Nineveh, but he instead ran off in the opposite direction, toward Tarsis. 
FALASCA: Running away from a difficult mission… 
BERGOGLIO: No. What he was fleeing was not so much Nineveh as the boundless love of God for those people. It was that that didn’t come into his plans. God had come once… “and I’ll see to the rest”: that’s what Jonah told himself. He wanted to do things his way, he wanted to steer it all. His stubbornness shut him in his own structures of evaluation, in his pre-ordained methods, in his righteous opinions. He had fenced his soul off with the barbed wire of those certainties that instead of giving freedom with God and opening horizons of greater service to others had finished by deafening his heart. How the isolated conscience hardens the heart! Jonah no longer knew that God leads His people with the heart of a Father. 
FALASCA: A great many of us can identify with Jonah. 
BERGOGLIO: Our certainties can become a wall, a jail that imprisons the Holy Spirit. Those who isolate their conscience from the path of the people of God don’t know the joy of the Holy Spirit that sustains hope. That is the risk run by the isolated conscience. Of those who from the closed world of their Tarsis complain about everything or, feeling their identity threatened, launch themselves into battles only in the end to be still more self-concerned and self-referential. 
FALASCA: What should one do? 
BERGOGLIO: Look at our people not for what it should be but for what it is and see what is necessary. Without preconceptions and recipes but with generous openness. For the wounds and the frailty God spoke. Allowing the Lord to speak… In a world that we can’t manage to interest with the words we say, only His presence that loves us, saves us, can be of interest. The apostolic fervor renews itself in order to testify to Him who has loved us from the beginning. 
FALASCA: For you, then, what is the worst thing that can happen in the Church? 
BERGOGLIO: It is what De Lubac calls «spiritual worldliness». It is the greatest danger for the Church, for us, who are in the Church. «It is worse», says De Lubac, «more disastrous than the infamous leprosy that disfigured the dearly beloved Bride at the time of the libertine popes». Spiritual worldliness is putting oneself at the center. It is what Jesus saw going on among the Pharisees: «… You who glorify yourselves. Who give glory to yourselves, the ones to the others».

twisted sister...

...another step on the path 

to the ordination of women


Sister Pierrette Thiffault, a woman playing priest.


Sister Pierrette Thiffault of Témiscamingue celebrated a marriage this weekend, a first in Lorrainville, Abitibi-Témiscamingue for the Catholic Church,  as the celebrant for a Novus Ordo mess.  Sister Pierrette wrote the Vatican asking for permission to witness marriages, after all she has been baptizing since 1984 in Latulipe and Moffet, so why not marriage too?  (The local bishop granted her the privilege to baptize.) She told the local press, “I can not marry. I am not ordained and it is not in my function.”  Well, it wasn’t until she received a letter from the Congregatio de Cultu Divino et Disciplina Sacramentorum (The Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments) on 23 May 2017 granting her permission to preside over a marriage ceremony.  Thiffault said of the letter, “When I got the answer, I felt a responsibility and a great dignity.”  Thiffault sees great importance in this, “It is a great service to the Church, but to me too. It is an opening for women in our milieu, but also in the diocese.”  There’s a reason Pierrette Thiffault was given the nickname ‘pastor’ by her bishop, Dorylas Moreau .

Par for the course when you have “three Martinis a day”




Thomas ‘three Martinis a day’ Rosica just cannot help himself.  When he is not busy blocking half the world from his twitter account, he fills his time by denigrating the Holy Family.  In the past he said that the Holy Family was irregular and this time he’s still showing little respect for the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Child Jesus as he depicts them riding a bicycle to save the environment.  Didn’t Jesus the Christ save the world already?  The lamebrained imbecile is probably very excited that the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s 95 theses will be coming up shortly.  He’ll most likely blow another gasket when he sits down and reads what the blogosphere has been saying about him recently but this Noahide closet Mormon will smugly think to himself, ‘I work for Francis the new evangelization, Who do those anonymous rigid haters think they are?’  And to think this man has his own television station (Pepper + Darkness) in addition to being the English language media attaché for the Holy See Press Office.

Sister Cristina is back and singing about the Kabbalah & Midrash


The song ‘Hallelujah’ was written by Leonard Cohen.  The concepts in the song are portrayed to the unknowing and ignorant public as biblical when in fact, they are Talmudic and Kabbalistic (see, The Midrash and Kabbalah Behind Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”).  ‘Hallelujah’ is a demoralizing song, designed to undermine the listerner’s faith in God, and an anti-Christ one too.  Cohen was a descendant, on both the maternal and fraternal sides of his family, from many celebrated rabbis, including Zionists and foreign agents of B’nai B’rith.  Cohen was an unofficial high-priest of the kabbalistic rabbinical talmudic religion. (In the linked Cohen video, Cohen recites part of the Amidah invocation, see ‘Amidah’ in The symbolism of the gifts Francis received and gave while at the Great Synagogue of Rome for more information.)

Francis isn’t pleased with new vocations




Below is a translation of a recent post from the blog, Benoit-et-Moi 2017, which reveals Francis as a sour puss, who hates anything that resembles piety towards Christ even remotely in a modernist form.  One can imagine the glee he would have shown had this been a group of new graduates from a rabbinical school instead of conservative members of the Novus Ordo.

Brief of [Casa] Santa Marta

A disturbing anecdote that is conveyed to me by a priest—reader (18/7/2017)

This story dates back to a few days ago. It is not an isolated fact, but an episode that shares similarity with many others, and which reveals a rather disturbing facet of the personality of the pope, at least one far removed from the cordial Francis shown by the media. This same priest confides to me: “An Argentine friend, who knew bishop Bergoglio well, tells me that he can be very hard with the weak.”

The reliability of the source (of which I do not wish to reveal the identity, but who is a known personality) is above all suspicion.

The Last History of [Casa] Santa Marta


A group of young priests from the same diocese, who have just been ordained, made a pilgrimage together to Rome. They are not traditionalists, but young priests of today, white shirt with small collar, classical, pious, normal, very happy with the gift of Christ they have just received. They naturally asked and got to lunch at Santa Marta and to be introduced to the Pope, and also to concelebrate with him the Mass of the next day.

They arrive at Santa Marta, at the appointed time, and put themselves in the place that is indicated to them. A secretary tells the Pope who is coming to them. The Pope: “Where are you from?” They, all proudly: “Of the diocese of X”. He, with the look of bad days: “Ah, in X, there are still many priests. This means that there is a problem, a problem of discernment.” And the Pope continues to walk on.

The young priests, aghast, look at each other, consult, and skipped eating. And the next day they dispensed with the concelebration at Santa Marta.

Emmanuel Macron shills for his masters


video


Emmanuel Macron, the pro-abortion, pro-LGBT, anti-family, pro-Moslem, pro-immigrant, and rumored to be a freemason, toes the party line for his anti-Catholic bankers and rabbis.  This former employee of the Rothschilds claims to be a Catholic however what type of Catholic would begin a sexual relation at the age of 15 with a married women?  Much less one who is almost 25 years his elder?  Brigitte Trogneux, Macron’s handler and current wife, was married at the time to André-Louis Auzière whom she has three children by but Macron carries on a clandestine ‘relationship’ with her.  Not exactly Catholic behavior is it?  We put quotes around ‘relationship’ because Brigette should be charged with statutory rape of a minor under Article 227-27 of the French Republic.  One year after divorcing her husband, Brigette got hitched to her boy toy.  Brigitte nicknamed ‘Bibi’ is not only Macron’s handler, she has steered his career including his 4 year stint at Rothschild & Co. before departing for a position in François Hollande’s cabinet and his recent election.  According to the World Jewish Congress, whose Chairman of the Governing Board is David René de Rothschild, they “look forward to fighting racism and xenophobia” with Macron.  It is symbolic that President Macron and his sexual predator wife Bibi are implementing the anti-Goyimite and anti-Catholic program of their masters — how more perverted can they be?  They better enjoy their lives now because where their heading isn’t a pleasant place.

Uh oh, Venezuelans, Francis is continuing to pray for you


Every time Francis comes forward with a new prayer request disaster befalls the intentions.  Most famously was the war in the Ukraine.  Almost no one recalls Francis praying for the Ukraine because that was the same infamous day his two ‘peace doves’ were attacked.  The result of Francis’ prayers for Ukraine was that the president decided to dissolve the parliament and thing hurriedly got worse.

Francis has been asked about the Vatican’s diplomacy concerning Venezuela in two interviews.  In the first both sides criticized the Vatican’s meddling.  Francis explained that everyone has to come out a winner except for the Vatican in Venezuela.  What!?  How about acting like a pope and condemning the un-Catholic behaviors that are happening for starters?   In the second interview Francis says that the reason for failure is that the parties involved can’t agree on anything.  Isn’t this the same chaotic way that Francis runs his bureaucracy?  Hey Francis, what happened to that ‘unity in diversity’ bunk?  It doesn’t work in the real world does it?

Here’s what the situation looks like: the dictator of Venezuela, Nicolás Maduro, says that the bishops don’t want to dialogue; Francis tells the bishops he has their back; the opposition is upset with the Vatican for dillydallying around; behind close doors Francis attempts to help Venezuela with refinancing their debts; and very quietly, Francis says he is concerned about the situation.  And it goes on-and-on-and-on around in a merry-go-round of insanity spiraling ever so more out of control with each revolution.  It is becoming increasingly apparent to the world and to Venezuelans that Francis has no clue about leadership and that he is not about to publicly castigate a fellow revolutionary.

Francis has been called a Marxist and a communist many times before and says this label doesn’t offend him.  After all he believes that “communists...think like Christians”.  The one thing which which says all you need to know about Francis and Venezuela is that according to Nicolás Maduro, God is on Francis’ side.
 “We know that our commander (Chavez) has gone to heaven and is face to face with Christ. He must have made such an impression for a South American to be chosen Pope.”
“A new hand arrived and Christ said, ‘Well, the time for South America has come.’ At any moment now (Chavez) will call for a constituent assembly in Heaven to change the Church, so that the people, the true people of Christ will govern the world.”
Nicolás Maduro at the 10th International Book Fair of Venezuela, 13 March 2013

Vive la république!


As we watched this video we were struck by the resemblance of Paris to one of the better neighborhoods of Tangier, Morocco.


This de-Christianization of Europe is the goal of Israel; the Freemasons; Francis (1) & (2); Putin; and the rabbis (1) & (2).



Description with the video:
Published on Jul 15, 2017
Just stepped outside my apartment, started filming for 45 minutes and didn't stop.

*For those who are confused by the point of this video, the point is that France is changing forever due to mass immigration. The people in this video were not speaking French, the women were not wearing their hair in French Braids, they had their head scarves on. When I was driving from the airport I saw people being fed from volunteer aid vans in the Syrian zones and coming up to your cars with signs in Arabic. The posters on the walls and the protesters yelled refugees welcome. Much of what you are looking at is not legal or proper migration and assimilation. France will not be France for long.*

Modernist rats scurrying about and fighting on a sinking ship

and at the funeral of Cardinal 
Joachim Meisner no less...





Archbishop Georg Gänswein, the Prefect of the Papal Household for Francis and Personal Secretary of the Benedict XVI read the following message (see below) at the funeral of Cardinal Joachim Meisner from Benedict XVI.  Meisner was one of the four dubia cardinals of Amoris Laetitia fame.  Not to be outdone, Francis also had a message for the attendees at the funeral (which no one in the press paid attention to) read by Archbishop Nikola Eterovic.

At this hour, when the church of Cologne and faithful from further a field gathered to say goodbye to Cardinal Joachim Meisner, my heart and thoughts are with you also, and gladly accepting the invitation of Cardinal Woelki, I wish to address a word of remembrance to you.
When I heard of the death of Cardinal Meisner last Wednesday, I did not want to believe it. The day before we had talked on the phone. His gratitude for the fact that he had been on vacation after he had participated in the beatification of Bishop Teofilius Matulionis in Vilnius on Sunday before (June 25) was clear in his his voice. The love for the Church in the neighboring countries in the East, which had suffered under the Communist persecution, as well as the gratitude for the withstanding the sufferings of that time, shaped his life. And so is it is no coincidence that the last visit to his life was one to a Confessor of the Faith in those countries.
What particularly impressed me in that last talk with the retired Cardinal, was the loosened joy, the inner joy, and the confidence he had found. We know that this passionate shepherd and pastor found it difficult to leave his post, especially at a time in which the Church stands in particularly pressing need of convincing shepherds who can resist the dictatorship of the spirit of the age and who live and think the faith with determination. However, what moved me all the more was that, in this last period of his life, he learned to let go and to live out of a deep conviction that the Lord does not abandon His Church, even when the boat has taken on so much water as to be on the verge of capsizing.
Two things in recent times which pleased him more than anything:
  • On the one hand, he has always told me how deeply he in the Sacrament of Penance, how young people, especially young men, are experiencing the grace of forgiveness - the Gift, they have found the life that only God can give.
  • The other thing that has always touched him and gave him joy, was the quiet growth of Eucharistic Adoration. At the World Youth Day in Cologne this was a central point for him - that there was Adoration, a silence in which only the Lord spoke to the heart. Some Pastoral and Liturgical experts felt that such silence in looking at the Lord can not be achieved with such a huge number of people. Some were also of the opinion that Eucharistic Adoration was overtaken as such, by the Mass, since the Lord would be received in Eucharistic bread and not be looked at. But that this Bread can not be eaten like any food, and that the Eucharistic sacrament "welcomes" all dimensions of our existence - that reception must be worship, has now become very clear. Thus, the time of Eucharistic Adoration at the Cologne World Youth Day has become an interior event, which remained unforgettable to the Cardinal.
When, on his last morning, Cardinal Meisner did not appear at Mass, he was found dead in his room. His Breviary had slipped out of his hands: he was praying as he died, looking at the Lord, talking to the Lord. The death that was given to him, shows once again how he lived: looking at the Lord and talking to him. So we can confidently recommend his soul to the goodness of God. Lord, we thank thee for the testimony of thy servant Joachim. Let him be intercessors for the Church of Cologne, and on the whole Be earthly! Requiescat in pace!

The chutzpah of Rabbi Ratzinger!  He sheds crocodile tears over the mess which he helped bring to fruition!  Benedict XVI when he was younger saw to it that a witch’s brew of chaos was put into effect during the Second Vatican Council.  This same chaos used to be his playground but now he fears it might be no more if it weren’t for the Lord!  What’s the matter, Benedict XVI?  Your fellow modernist Francis doesn’t like the smells-and-bells as much as you do?


Fr. Joseph Ratzinger as a theological consultant at Vatican II helped create a huge mess. 
Notice he is dressed in a coat and tie. This was before he learned to love smells-and-bells.



Things are going to be getting mighty interesting 
when ‘humble’ Francis hears about this!
