The Mystery of the Disappearing Pope – Dialogue Mass 89 by Dr. Carol Byrne
The issue at the heart of Pope Leo’s expulsion from the Calendar is the changed concept of the Papacy. This 7th century Pope did not simply admonish, but took firm action against the source and spread of heresy, not sparing one of his Predecessors. He was, therefore, a “sign of contradiction,” a direct affront to the Vatican II Popes who allowed a swarm of heresies to invade and take residence in the Church – all in the cause of Ecumenism, Religious Liberty and Collegiality.
August 8 – He gloried in his crime – Bl. John Felton On Nobility and Analogous Traditional Elites
Martyr, date and place of birth unknown, was executed in St. Paul’s Churchyard, London, 8 August, 1570, for having, about eleven o’clock at night on the previous 24 May, affixed a copy of the Bull of St. Pius V excommunicating the queen to the gates of the Bishop of London’s palace near St. Paul’s.
What ‘s Next ? Post Legalization Era Of Abortion Always Brings A Socialism Form Of Communism to A Country
Putting Ireland and the rest of western Europe aside for the moment, what happens when more Latin American countries inch toward the legalization of infanticide , the ones that already legalized same inch toward abortion on demand, legalized sex selection abortion, and the attempts to eliminate all birth defects (eugenics ) by killing them in the womb
What ALWAYS follows is socialized medicine , government controlled hospitals in life and death decision making business and real Catholic doctors that resist persecuted. What comes next from eugenics, is tax payer subsidizing of transgender creations, euthanasia for both young and old, government doctors and insurance managers revel in the growth of the temptations for power over life and death. Killing becomes addictive , which old people get operations and which are denied. Liberals smooth over communism light with socialism justifications, They are just fights against “materialism”
It’s anthropocentrism gone wild. The failure at Vatican II to dig into the philosophies of communism and the theologies of freemasonry , their relationship to one another the culture of death and publicly & formally denounce the infiltration of communism. The so-called progress of mankind has its natural end in his lowest common denominator which is original sin. It’s natural end always has the strong determine the fate of the weak for the supposed greater good. This is what resulted from the proliferation of a new type of Catholicism in an ecumenism with a new type of neo-Protestantism that embraced “the world”. Saint Paul taught us in Sacred Scripture that we can ‘live in the world but not be of the world’
Many do not realize how deep the well goes, in how many unexplored legs the caterpillar has. One such subject, of the many not dug into in nearly enough depth, is the intrinsic relationship of the Catholic Pentecostal movement of Charismatic Catholicism to the socialism of liberation theology and how partnered the two have been in philosophy and hierarchy through its’ lifetime. Only now are traditional academic Catholics beginning to study these subjects amid the many people that are being used and deceived in a much broader movement.
Vatican II is the smoking gun. Professor Plinio Correa de Oliveria , founder of the Society for the Defense of Tradition family and property, put it in this way. He denounced the enigmatic disconcerting dreadful and apocalypticaly tragic silence that the Second Vatican Council kept with regard to Communism (which also explained the entire suppression of the 3rd secret of Fatima on the infiltration of the Catholic hierarchy and the suppression of the Consecration of Russia due to a Vatican deal with Russia with sitting dignitaries of Russia and eastern orthodox Patriarchs in attendance at Vatican II)
The Professor was quoted as saying publicly
“The council intended to be pastoral and not dogmatic In fact it had no dogmatic import. Moreover it’s omission with respect to communism may make it go down in history as the a-pastoral council par excellence. With its up-to-date tactics – about which nevertheless, the least that can be said is that they are debatable on the theoretical practical plane ( with some conciliar documents noting a dissonance with traditional teaching and even a systematic ambiguity that is incompatible with full orthodoxy) the Second Vatican Council attempted to drive away, so to speak, bees, wasps and birds of prey. Its silence on communism let the wolves run free. The work conducted by the Council cannot be written down as really pastoral; neither in history nor in the Book of Life.
In is harsh to say it yet the factual evidence points , in this sense , to Vatican II as one of the greatest calamities, if not the greatest in the history of the Church . As a result of it “ the smoke of satan’ has penetrated into the Church to an unthinkable extent , and it is still spreading day by day , with the terrible expanding gases. To the scandal of countless souls, the Mystical Body of Christ has entered into a sinister process that could be called self-destruction.”
Among the common elements almost never discussed , we repeatedly find many . Upon Pope Paul VI death the grand master of the grand orient freemasonry in Italy proclaimed that Freemasonry was proud for the first time in history to honor a Pope of the Roman Catholic Church in Paul VI.
Several conservative and traditional Catholic dignitaries of the Italian government at the same time were murdered. Suddenly Pope John Paul I turns up dead after only one month in the chair of Peter, with more than several private testimonies of his murder. Several Bishops that pushed for some of the most progressive changes to the Catholic Church at Vatican II and wrote & distributed volumes of propaganda left the Catholic Church following Vatican II after having served their self-destructive mission.The lodges of freemasonry in Rome are built on specific geographic points forming a pentagram , all but one point in the lower corner constructed , one whose properties they still continue to be unsuccessful at commandeering The fact that this sub-terrain world still goes on and is now coming to the surface in this Pontificate is most visible in the masonic Vatican banking scandals and several on-going trials that the US Catholic media refuse to cover. If you don’t read Italian and you are not a traditional rite Catholic it’s invisible to you just the way they want it . Progress, they say, must continue the belief in the evolution of the brotherhood of mankind. What they don’t tell you until you are bought in to this school of thought , eventually man becomes god.
Professor Plinio Correa de Oliveria , in respect to the TFP’s alliance with conservative and traditional Catholics at Vatican II, on the many tragic things they witnessed first-hand would latter follow-up to his writings in his Revolution and Counter Revolutionbook with a latter statement in 1989 “ When in the last part of Revolution and Counter Revolution was that Vatican II was the greatest calamity in Church history, I maintained something that I would maintain today much more vehemently than before.”
Only now are scholars beginning to study this era far enough out to collect all the data and its bad fruit in analyzing all the facts in an objective manner. Among which deeply runs their philosophy of the need to level all the classes from nobility /aristocracy down through the upper classes, the middle classes, the merchant & skilled labor trades and their sodalities
In 1962 the Professor and TFP founder met with Cardinal Tisserant , the virtual MC of Vatican II , where the Cardinal confided in him that he participated in the high level negotiations with the schimatic Russian Orthodox “ “Moscow demanded that no one speak against communism at the Council and Rome agreed “ Subsequently, all the schemas were lost , not processed, and suppressed at the Council. No one ever mentions that THIS was Archbishop Lefebvre’s main argument, secondly the Religious Liberty /Ecumenism heresy and the protestantization of the Liturgy was only third. Many don’t realize how deeply communism morphed into the Church in new shapes in liberation theology and was exported all over the world not just to Latin America And hence the theology of “the poor Church” , itself a heresy, was invented and propagated at this moment
And so what comes next after the legalization of abortion ?, the anthropocentric road map of Vatican II , self destruction resident within the culture of death hiding within the vehicle that drives it deeper into more countries , “Communism Light” , Socialism, Social Medicine, Liberation Theology, and the various aberration movements of the novus ordo , the new rite of the Catholic Church
Study and pray for the truth to emerge for the Truth shall set us all free !

Why Is Socialism Still Popular? – On The Society For The Defense Of Tradition Family And Property
Who have the power to change the weightings within the automated software? Will criticizing the government online generate 1 negative point this month but 10 points next month? How can citizens with a handful of negative points, some perhaps incorrect mis-identifications, avoid crossing the dreaded threshold if they don’t know how the system is truly ranking various violations?
While many insightfully point to the era between Pius IX , Pius X, and Pius XI as the beginning of the era of the fight against modernism within the Church and the modernism of the post conciliar era in the ‘supposed spirit of Vatican II as its resurgence, that is not necessarily a complete objective scenario
Firstly, it never completely subsided following the era of the Popes of the Pius titles and secondly it was not the spirit of the Council post-haste but clearly came out of a school of thought and into a political party at the Council – It was in the counter preparatory works of the Council – all the debates at the Council and with the Council documents itself, that any student of the Council will clearly see in volumes of empirical evidence.
The false paradigm of ecumenism is something that was invented at Vatican II – even the invention Secretariat For Non-Christian religions was a ground breaking challenge to Roman Catholic doctrine
In order to declare this new catholic dogma of ecumenism, they first needed to suppress the Catholic philosophy of Thomas Aquinas and Aristotle, including natural law, and to especially to overturn the natural principals of non-contradiction. The ground work became the elevation of the ‘human’ in human dignity and the elevation of the rights of religious liberty (of any religion) In order to accomplish this new declaration a new philosophy need be introduced which was quickly revealed as the ‘reason’ or need for a Council if they were somehow to upstage an infallible Catholic teaching that the Rights of God including the Rights of God in his one true Church , the mystical body of Christ, would be in need of more than suppression but redefinition. Hence the center of the council became the encyclicals on religious liberty and the elevation of the dignity of the human person.
We are now seeing the bad fruits of the anti- Catholic neo-Catholic non-binding Catholic social teaching of ecumenism with ALL religions , the formal heresy of ‘syncretism’ that Freemasonry sought all along especially in its liaison emissaries to the Council.
At the Council there was a conservative group Coetus Internationalis to which many interventions were made by the likes of Archbishops Ruffini, Lefebvre, Cardinal Ottovani and many others. Among them, one such intervention was to protest the book being heavily circulated at the Council by the liaison to freemasonry Baron de Masuadon on the new ‘human fraternity’ required by all religions The book , popular among high level Catholic prelates, was “Ecumenism As Seen By A Traditional Freemason” What followed from a lower level Father Giovani Capril attempted to form another reproachment of freemasonry as well,with the re-listing of the 200+ official Catholic Church works and statements against freemasonry as antithetical to all of Christianity and its philosophies , including that of ecumenism as an ‘enemy “ of Catholicism – see R. de Mattei – Vatican II- The untold Story 3rd session of the council.
False religions from the time of the Council on would then proliferate like no other era in salvation history. Islam would see its greatest increase and spread in its own history as it was officially no longer resisted by Catholicism but suddenly and strangely recognized as one of the worlds great religions , contrary to everything that Roman Catholicism had ever previously said or declared about islamic mohammedanism. Similar treatises were begun on the eastern mystery religions including buddhism in that there were suddenly some general good and truth within these religions without ever specifically stating what that good might be aside from their mutual denial of the divinity of Christ in the heresy of Arianism that in one era almost destroyed the Church in the 4th century
So now it becomes the era of the mission of the lay Catholics to carry the torch and stand in the gap for the survivability of the remnant of sacred tradition , family, and property – God’s covenantal people are being called upon into action – There is no one else behind us – Many do not realize that it is now us or no one
We were not promised the Church would last until the end of time “in it’s present size and form” only that there would be a Church (most likely underground as in the early Church while all else in orthodoxy is persecuted )
Interview: Bishop Schneider Addresses a New “Syllabus of Errors” for the
Modern Church – OnePeterFive
It’s logical conclusion is simply if their are truths within non Christian religions that no longer calls us to help convert these peoples then Christians that are not Catholic must somehow believe the same things we believe. All we need to do in suppress every doctrinal and dogmatic difference between these Christian religions , declare the philosophy of non-contradiction and anyone who espouses it and or traditional Catholicism as an unmerciful peoples in need of sanctions and suppression for their own good.
Therefore we have Cardinals and Bishops declaring that if this is truly the new teachings of the Church and we follow the Vatican declared non-binding non-doctrinal pastoral teachings and documents of the Council we cannot deny intercommunion to adulterers and protestants. The dignity of the person, the rights of the human person and his own discernment in his or her own personal interpretation must be higher than the law. This is what the council taught in several dozen places and the post conciliar prelates pounded into the religious and the laity in the era that followed the Council.
Possibly everyone is being too critical of Pope Francis and perhaps he and the other progressive modernists that are now in the majority of the leadership of the Church are merely bringing into the open air and attempting to implement what was only previously suggested and implied by the new religious teaching of the Council & its official encyclicals. The Pope’s defense, that we’ve yet to hear raised, is.. ‘but its right here in the Council documents.’
Pope John Paul II declared Saint of the Church tried to find an invisible middle road between the Council and Catholic tradition – as illustrated in his creation and issuance of Ecclesia Dei (1988) – Pope Benedict XVI upon reaching the See of Peter became much more traditional and ignored much of the previous teachings of the Council. Pope Francis has said, on multiple occasions in truth, that the Council has not been (as of yet ) fully implemented.
It is also most clearly present in the Council’s imposed overthrow of the aristocratic ecclesial structure of the Church and it’s re-org to a democratic government model open to interpretation by regional vote, in a continuing decades long re-organization. The more we read and study the more we come to understand, it’s not Pope Francis it’s the modernism of the previous era that began to metastasize at the Council and only now is becoming incarnate with and within Pope Francis. Is he merely only following to the letter the dictates of the Council Fathers that laid down the new religion of syncretism, masonic philosophy, and progressive modernism. Perhaps our Pope is not deviant at all but very loyal….to the Council.
“Points of Rupture” of the Second Vatican Council with the Tradition of the Church – A Synopsis – On OnePeterFive
The second letter of the apostle John Whoever is faithful to the teaching of Christ possesses both the Father and the Son
The elder to a Lady who is elect and to her children.
In truth I love each of you—and not only I but also all those who have come to know the truth. This love is based on the truth that abides in us and will be with us forever. In truth and love, then, we shall have grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and from Jesus Christ, the Father’s Son.
It has given me great joy to find some of your children walking in the path of truth, just as we were commanded by the Father. But now, my Lady, I would make this request of you (not as if I were writing you some new commandment; rather, it is a commandment we have had from the start): let us love one another. This love involves our walking according to the commandments, and as you have heard from the beginning, the commandment is the way in which you should walk.
Many deceitful men have gone out into the world, men who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh. Such is the deceitful one! This is the antichrist! Look out that you yourselves do not lose what you have worked for; you must receive your reward in full.
Anyone who is so “progressive” that he does not remain rooted in the teaching of Christ does not possess God, while anyone who remains rooted in the teaching possesses both the Father and the Son. If anyone comes to you who does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house; do not even greet him, for whoever greets him shares in the evil he does.
While there is much more that I could write you, I do not intend to put it down on paper; instead, I hope to visit you and talk with you face to face, so that our joy may be full.
The children of your elect sister send you their greetings.
From the treatise On the Trinity by Saint Hilary, bishop The Father’s gift in Christ
Our Lord commanded us to baptize in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. In baptism, then, we profess faith in the Creator, in the only-begotten Son and in the gift which is the Spirit. There is one Creator of all things, for in God there is one Father from whom all things have their being. And there is one only-begotten Son, our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom all things exist. And there is one Spirit, the gift who is in all. So all follow their due order, according to the proper operation of each: one power, which brings all things into being, one Son, through whom all things come to be, and one gift of perfect hope. Nothing is wanting to this flawless union: in Father, Son and Holy Spirit, there is infinity of endless being, perfect reflection of the divine image, and mutual enjoyment of the gift.
Our Lord has described the purpose of the Spirit’s presence in us. Let us listen to his words: I have yet many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. It is to your advantage that I go away; if I go, I will send you the Advocate. And also: I will ask the Father and he will give you another Counselor to be with you for ever, the Spirit of truth. He will guide you into all the truth; for he will not speak on his own authority, but whatever he hears he will speak, and he will declare to you the things that are to come. He will glorify me, for he will take what is mine.
From among many of our Lord’s sayings, these have been chosen to guide our understanding, for they reveal to us the intention of the giver, the nature of the gift and the condition for its reception. Since our weak minds cannot comprehend the Father or the Son, we have been given the Holy Spirit as our intermediary and advocate, to shed light on that hard doctrine of our faith, the incarnation of God.
We receive the Spirit of truth so that we can know the things of God. In order to grasp this, consider how useless the faculties of the human body would become if they were denied their exercise. Our eyes cannot fulfill their task without light, either natural or artificial; our ears cannot react without sound vibrations, and in the absence of any odor our nostrils are ignorant of their function. Not that these senses would lose their own nature if they were not used; rather, they demand objects of experience in order to function. It is the same with the human soul. Unless it absorbs the gift of the Spirit through faith, the mind has the ability to know God but lacks the light necessary for that knowledge.
This unique gift which is in Christ is offered in its fullness to everyone. It is everywhere available, but it is given to each man in proportion to his readiness to receive it. Its presence is the fuller, the greater a man’s desire to be worthy of it. This gift will remain with us until the end of the world, and will be our comfort in the time of waiting. By the favors it bestows, it is the pledge of our hope for the future, the light of our minds, and the splendor that irradiates our understanding.

But it goes beyond a mere refutation of the predictableness of the Pope Francis Bergoglio papacy – by following the trajectory of Martin Luther as to the next doctrines, dogmas, and ecclesial practices he will seek to suppress and or otherwise redefine
In this going beyond the convergence of progressivism and modernism it is oh so much more in the way of syncretism
It had to go beyond protestantism in Catholicism and quickly – They knew where they wanted to go and who would take them there quickest

Pagan Natural Uprightness and the Extravagance of Apostates – Nobility and Analogous Traditional Elites
These are three ultra-modern churches, one Protestant, another Jewish, and the last, Catholic, on an American university campus. None of them bears any trace of their respective traditions or spirit. Placed thus side by side, they seem to be three equally legitimate species of one same genus, the religion genus. A like spirit gives them all a like physiognomy.
One has the impression that they have just one soul, that the force which fastens them to the ground is an immanent, sinister and cold mystery, giving them an aspect of three drops of the same liquid, three boxes filled with the same substance, three factories producing the same product.
It is, in our way of seeing, the very soul of contemporary neopaganism, the archetype of the worst of everything that ancient paganism had, corroding all the cultural manifestations in which it is nestled much more efficaciously than did ancient paganism and reducing everything to desolating uniformity
The revolution that only began with the protestant revolution and continued into the French revolution and the Marxist /socialists/and communists revolution – discussed in detail by the exhortation letters of Pope Leo XIII 1902
Finally penetrated the wall of the Church in the 1920s and culminated in the Vatican II Council in the 1960s to which we have now seen come to its full chaotic fruition
For those who have not studied it in depth and wish to know what IT is….
It is even beyond progressivism and modernism …it is a syncretism that seeks , and in many ways already has , to overthrow immutability of truth, evolution of man from ape is only part of it …evolution of truth is its goal …a freeing of personal conscience to each’s own personal truth …..internal immanence corresponding to Vatican II’s ‘nouvelle theologie’ evolves to ‘nouvelle Christiente’ a new Christendom . It’s ecclesial supporters giggle when then talk about it in saying , we have no idea where in the next generation the places they will take it.
From Jacques Maritain’s Integral Humanism to the 1940s social Christianity …morphing into a new 3rd way they called it
The irreversibility of progress into a ‘modern world’ they call it – It took the place of the institutions of Jansenism that they had ready built structures for them to move into with the new ideologies And as everyone knows progressivism always has deep sympathies with the proletariat cause of Marxism and the crushing of nobility and royalism in which it most often runs hand in hand with- Socialism never works. Venezuela is a perfect example – LifeSite https://www.lifesitenews.com/opinion/venezuela-is-sinking-and-no-one-cares These philosophical and theological sub-revolutions joined force with the historical critical method of biblical exegesis. By the time Teilhard de Chardin would die in 1955 his teachings that were thrice condemned by the Holy See would be read and studied extensively by the majority of the theologians and prelates that attended Vatican II and hence the resurrection of his thesis and writings by Pope John Paul II. Teilhard de Chardin and the Catholic ‘Evolution’ – On The Remnant Newspaper –https://remnantnewspaper.com/web/index.php/articles/item/3861-teilhard-de-chardin-and-the-catholic-evolution It’s the evolution of Truth underway , which really had no place else to go except to arrive at except ‘beyond ecumenism’ to pan-ecumenism and hence syncretism with the ideologies and philosophies of ecclesial freemasonry , no longer needing structures but permeating every culture and institution by and through the new Catholic Church
This pan-ecumenism we just detailed a brief history of has crossing trajectory paths with the Catholic Charismatic movement in that they both originated outside the Catholic Church ……..
From the book of Revelation 17:1-18 Babylon the great harlot
I, John, watched and one of the seven angels who were holding the seven bowls came to me and said: “Come, I will show you the judgment in store for the great harlot who sits by the waters of the deep. The kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the earth’s inhabitants have grown drunk on the wine of her lewdness.”
The angel then carried me away in spirit to a desolate place where I saw a woman seated on a scarlet beast which was covered with blasphemous names. This beast had seven heads and ten horns. The woman was dressed in purple and scarlet and adorned with gold and pearls and other jewels. In her hand she held a gold cup that was filled with the abominable and sordid deeds of her lewdness. On her forehead was written a symbolic name, “Babylon the great, mother of harlots and all the world’s abominations.” I saw that the woman was drunk with the blood of God’s holy ones and the blood of those martyred for their faith in Jesus.
When I saw her I was greatly astonished. The angel said to me: “Why are you so taken aback? I will explain to you the symbolism of the woman and of the seven-headed and ten-horned beast carrying her. The beast you saw existed once but now exists no longer. It will come up from the abyss once more before going to final ruin. All the men of the earth whose names have not been written in the book of the living from the creation of the world shall be amazed when they see the beast, for it existed once and now exists no longer, and yet it will exist again.
Here is the clue for one who possesses wisdom! The seven heads are seven hills on which the woman sits enthroned. They are also seven kings: five have already fallen, one lives now, and the last has not yet come; but when he does come he will remain only a short while. The beast which existed once but now exists no longer, even though it is an eighth king, is really one of the seven and is on its way to ruin. The ten horns you saw represent ten kings who have not yet been crowned; they will possess royal authority along with the beast, but only for an hour. Then they will come to agreement and bestow their power and authority on the beast. They will fight against the Lamb but the Lamb will conquer them, for he is the Lord of lords and the King of kings; victorious, too, will be his followers—the ones who were called: the chosen and the faithful.”
The angel then said to me: “The waters on which you saw the harlot enthroned are large numbers of peoples and nations and tongues. The ten horns you saw on the beast will turn against the harlot with hatred; they will strip off her finery and leave her naked; they will devour her flesh and set her on fire. For God has put it into their minds to carry out his plan, by making them agree to bestow their sovereignty on the beast until his will is accomplished. The woman you saw is the great city which has sovereignty over the kings of the earth.”
From a letter to the Corinthians by Saint Clement, pope The preservation of unity
Beloved, Jesus Christ is our salvation, he is the high priest through whom we present our offerings and the helper who supports us in our weakness. Through him our gaze penetrates the heights of heaven and we see as in a mirror, the most holy face of God. Through Christ the eyes of our hearts are opened, and our weak and clouded understanding reaches up toward the light. Through him the Lord God willed that we should taste eternal knowledge, for Christ is the radiance of God’s glory, and as much greater than the angels as the name God has given him is superior to theirs.
So then, my brothers, let us do battle with all our might under his unerring command. Think of the men serving under our military commanders. How well disciplined they are! How readily and submissively they carry out orders! Not everyone can be a prefect, a tribune, a centurion, or a captain of fifty, but each man in his own rank executes the orders of the emperor and the officers in command. The great cannot exist without those of humble condition, nor can those of humble condition exist without the great. Always it is the harmonious working together of its various parts that insures the well-being of the whole. Take our own body as an example: The head is helpless without the feet; and the feet can do nothing without the heart. Even our least important members are useful and necessary to the whole body, and all work together for its well-being in harmonious subordination.
Let us, then, preserve the unity of the body that we form in Christ Jesus, and let everyone give his neighbor the deference to which his particular gifts entitle him. Let the strong care for the weak and the weak respect the strong. Let the wealthy assist the poor and the poor man thank God for giving him someone to supply his needs. The wise man should show his wisdom not by his eloquence but by good works; the humble man should not proclaim his own humility, but leave others to do so; nor must the man who preserves his chastity ever boast of it, but recognize that the ability to control his desires has been given him by another.
Think, my brothers, of how we first came into being, of what we were at the first moment of our existence. Think of the dark tomb out of which our Creator brought us into his world where he had his gifts prepared for us even before we were born. All this we owe to him and for everything we must give him thanks. To him be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
