Deacon Suspended As Journalist By EWTN

en.news English Deacon Nick Donnelly was suspended at the Catholic media network EWTN, he reports on Twitter (July 17).

The culprits of the decision are EWTN’s Doug Keck and Michael Warsaw.

Donnelly is an outspoken but deeply honest critic of Pope Francis. He defended Francis in the beginning, but later was forced by the facts to change his position.

The pretext for the suspension was an article published in 2017 which EWTN deleted and OnePeterFive.com re-published.

It is basically a paraphrase of an article in the London Times claiming that a group of cardinals wanted Francis to resign because they feared that his policies would cause a schism “more disastrous” than the Reformation.

Watch: Apostate & activist Gay James Martin complains to US govt of ‘homophobia’ in Catholic Church

WATCH: Fr. James Martin complains to US govt of ‘homophobia’ in Catholic Church 

WASHINGTON, D.C., July 17, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — Pro-LGBT Jesuit priest Fr. James Martin told a U.S. government commission looking into how faith communities can address “hate crimes” that within the Catholic Church there exists “racism, sexism, and homophobia.”
Several religious leaders addressed lawmakers on the U.S. Helsinki Commission on Tuesday about how faith communities can address such “hate crimes,” including Martin, editor at large of America magazine and a Vatican consultant.

Martin, who was given plaudits by Rep. Gwen Moore (D-Wis.) for his work with LGBTQ advocates, said people of faith should first address prejudice and discrimination within their own houses of worship in order to address the phenomenon of “hate crime.”
Joining the committee via video, Martin explained that he was not able to personally attend the hearing because of medical treatments. He spoke on the issue of how religious organizations can respond to “hate crime.” He recalled the murderous 2016 rampage unleashed by a Muslim terrorist at the Pulse nightclub in Miami, which he said had a largely “LGBT clientele.”
Martin said that following the attack, there was an “outpouring of love and support for the LGBT community from almost every quarter in the country.” He claimed, “One notable exception was the Catholic Church, my own church.”
Martin admitted that the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops issued a “brief, four-line statement” deploring the attack. He complained that it did not provide specific mention of “gay” and “LGBT” people as the targets of the murders. He said few Catholic bishops issued their own statements about the attack.
“As a thought experiment, imagine if 49 people from a particular ethnic group were massacred, and the name of that ethnic group was omitted from public statements. Moreover, in the wake of the U.S. bishops’ statement, only a handful of individual Catholic bishops expressed any sympathy at all. The vast majority said absolutely nothing. Even in death, the LGBT community remained invisible to much of the Church,” he said.
“Racism, sexism, and homophobia still exist in many Christian denominations, my own included,” said Martin.
Martin suggested that Christian groups are fostering and blessing homophobia among their parishioners. He also claimed that Catholic bishops outside the U.S. have allegedly supported laws directed at supporting homosexuals.
Martin deplored what he said is an “influential, far-right Catholic website,” which he did not further identify, for deploring so-called gay-straight alliances in schools.
“What does such tacit support for prejudice by Church leaders end up doing?” he asked. The priest answered his own question: “it excuses hate, it fosters hate, it blesses hate, and it unintentionally encourages the violence that this hate leads to.”
Our Lady of La Salette: Many will abandon the faith, and the number of priests and religious who will separate themselves from the true religion will be great; even Bishops will be found among these persons.”

LifeSiteNews has published articles in the past that point out that so-called gay-straight alliances put children in contact with LGBTQ ideology, radical and homosexual activists, and sexually oriented literature.
“Make no mistake. Some Catholics who treat LGBT people with contempt think they are doing so with the Church’s blessing. Thus, these people think they are being prophetic. They don't see themselves as haters, they see themselves as prophets because they feel the support of their churches,” said Martin.
Standing in front of the rainbow colors of the LGBT movement, Martin offered what he said are ways that churches can address hatred directed at specific groups of people.
“First, by taking a clear look at how their organizations speak of, and minister to, members of marginalized groups. Second, by reaching out to these groups, specifically to make them feel welcomed into what are, after all, their churches too. Finally, by taking every opportunity to stand with them publicly, to advocate for them, to fight for them, even at the risk of losing some parishioners,” he said.
Jewish, Christian, and Muslim faith leaders addressed the Helsinki Commission on Tuesday.
According to a press release from the organization, countering “hate crimes” requires bringing together government, law enforcement, and religious communities. Founded in 1976 and officially dubbed the Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe, the commission’s brief is to foster “human rights, democracy, and economic, environmental, and military cooperation” among its 57 member countries. A press release stated, “Religious actors and interfaith institutions play an important role in promoting safe and inclusive societies and reducing violence, hostility, and discrimination.”
The Catholic Church teaches that homosexual acts are “acts of grave depravity” and “intrinsically disordered.” Such acts are “contrary to the natural law” in that they “close the sexual act to the gift of life,” states the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
The Church moreover teaches that God does not create any man or woman with attraction to the same sex, calling such an inclination “objectively disordered.” As is the case with any other kind of sin, be it murder, theft, or adultery, Christianity holds that followers of Christ must love the sinner while hating the sin. The same is true for those who commit homosexual sins. The Church teaches that people who struggle with same-sex attraction must be “accepted with respect, compassion, and sensitivity.”

Martin has been roundly criticized by various prominent Catholics and others for his incoherence with regard to Catholic teachings about sexuality. In June, he said at a Mass to kick off New York City’s huge LGBTQ “Pride” march that Pope Francis has appointed numerous pro-LGBTQ bishops and cardinals.

Gänswein´s interview about no Gay-Infiltration in the theological faculty in Germany show a lack of credibility

Gänswein Earnestly: One Could Study Theology "Well" in Germany, no Gay-Infiltration

en.news Archbishop Georg Gänswein, the private secretary of Benedict XVI, experienced "no homosexual infiltration" during his priestly formation in the 1980s in Freiburg, Germany, he recounts in a video produced by the Austrian Heiligenkreuz Abbey (13 July).

Gänswein adds that one could study "well" at the [depraved] theological faculty of Freiburg University, Germany. The theological faculty and the seminary offered him sufficient "food" for his intellectual and spiritual maturation, he says revealing his theological unpretentiousness.

At that time, the radical-liberal Oskar Saier was Freiburg archbishop. This did not impede Gänswein to become Saier's private secretary in 1994.

One year before, Saier caused a worldwide scandal by publishing a "pastoral letter" together with the later cardinals Walter Kasper and Karl Lehman which demanded, in open confrontation with Church teaching and John Paul II, to admit active adulterers to Holy Communion.

In USA state after state lifts the statutes of limitations for the sake of the innocent victims of homosexual abuse at the hands of homosexual clergy

Protecting the Innocent

At great PERSONAL cost. Absolutely.

July 17, 2019
The Church is collapsing — full-on collapse. The rot from within is becoming more and more visible and is about to shift into high gear.
For example, on Aug. 14, less than one month from now, the state of New York's window on the statute of limitations opens for a full year — meaning anyone who has a claim from whenever will be able to file suit against all seven dioceses in New York.
Cardinal Dolan is so worried that he actually took all 32 archdiocesan insurance companies to court because they are saying they will no longer pay these massive lawsuit settlements because they are accusing Church leaders of having created this mess, a charge not lacking legitimacy.
Starting Aug. 14, those New York dioceses are expecting hundreds of millions of dollars of lawsuits to be filed against them — because yes, there are that many victims.
But the financial damage is only one instrument by which we can measure the collapse of the Church.
There are going to be massive earthly repercussions — absolutely, no doubt about it. And to the extent that there are hundreds of truthful claims, those victims deserve justice.
But on the spiritual side of the house, the situation is even more drastic, as hard as that is to imagine.
Tens of millions — stop for a moment and listen to that number: tens of millions — of baptized Catholics have simply walked away from the Church, and the rate increases every year.
The Church as an institution has long since ceased to provide the spiritual bread that the human soul longs for.
Instead, the institutional Church has become a haunt for psychologically disturbed men who like having sex with each other while hiding behind their collars and underneath their miters while they sponge off the patrimony of the Church — a patrimony that will become considerably smaller as state after state lifts the statutes of limitations for victims of homosexual abuse at the hands of homosexual clergy.
What is about to happen in New York is slated to happen in a number of other states as well.
And why? How? How has it come such a horrid state of affairs? While the details are very involved, the straight-up, 60,000-foot answer is really quite simple.
The priesthood was seized control of over a number of decades by homosexual men — some of whom were Communist plants — and is now almost no longer recognizable.
Satan has done his work extremely well. When he demanded of Our Blessed Lord in the Upper Room at the Last Supper that Christ hand over His Apostles to him so he could sift them like wheat, the current state of affairs is something of what he must have had in mind.
It was a necessity in the diabolical plan that the clergy become emasculated, terrified of announcing the hard, glorious truth of salvation for fear of giving offense — check.
What we largely have in the ranks of the presbyterate and especially the episcopate today is precisely what Satan wanted: morally corrupt women for men who have lost nearly all semblance of supernatural faith, whose only concern is power and lust.
Never before in the 2,000-year sacred history of the Church has the holy priesthood fallen so low.
Even among the so-called "good" priests, many of them have been malformed from breathing in the fumes of the Church of Nice.
The Church of Nice was conceived in the minds of the homosexual predators Cdl. Joseph Bernardin and Theodore McCarrick, and what most Catholics see before them today is that model of the Church with its abuse-ridden liturgy and de-emphasis of the supernatural.
Many men being ordained today have been trained by the Church of Nice faculty and staff at their seminaries to never give offense; to try and find reconciliation; to hold "dialogue" as the supreme virtue.
They have been emasculated; taught to go along, don't upset the people; preach watered-down garbage to them like Alpha evangelization and "Church Lady" RCIA classes; no wonder huge numbers of people leave the Church, even after having gone through a year of RCIA.
They haven't been given the authentic faith in those classes, they have been taught polite, non-confrontational, non-offensive milquetoast with a dash of Bp. Barron's idiocy that we have a reasonable hope that all men are saved. And for the record: no, we don't.
What a priest, and for that fact any man of the Church, is supposed to be doing, as his primary job, is protecting the innocent — that is job; period.
And what we are protecting them from is the fires of Hell. But Hell has fallen out of favor with the corrupt homosexual mafia running the Church — no surprise there.
They, like their master, don't want people thinking of Hell. That is the last thing they want people thinking of. And as a quick aside, that is why Barron's spiritual poison and things like Alpha are peddled all over the Church.
All of this, the reasonable hope insanity, the Alpha Protestantized filth, the abuse-ridden liturgies, the deconstruction of Sacred Scriptures, all of it and more, every last bit is meant to produce emasculated men because it has been foisted on the Church by emasculated men.
They can't biologically reproduce, so they spiritually reproduce the offspring of the serpent.
This is the focus of this year's Church Militant Strength and Honor Conference coming up in a few weeks. Please just click on the link for all the details — and seating is limited and filling up.
Men must take all this back. We must realize how much we have had our masculinity stripped away from us, how the Church has been overrun by biological males — we hesitate to call them men — who are sick in the head, looking to destroy so as to feed their own sickness.
They have introduced zillions of abuses into the liturgy so as to make themselves the center of attention, which means they have necessarily taken the focus of God.
They have developed and introduced corrupt theological notions in the very lifeblood of the Church.
All of this is costing souls — souls by the millions, tens of millions. Satan is in a frenzy of "diabolical joy" over this for he is the ultimate source of it.
This is a shout out to all guys listening, but especially younger guys, please click on the link and get yourselves to this conference here in Detroit the first weekend of August.
You cannot equip yourself to take back your home, your household, your parish, if you do not understand what has happened. There is much to learn, much to be challenged on.
That's why Church Militant put these conferences on. There are enormous forces aligned against you, and many of you do not realize it.
The Culture of Death — and we aren't just talking about abortion — the entire machine of the Culture of Death is closing in on you, and only holy men will be able to withstand it and fight.
And you aren't just fighting for yourself. You have a duty, you and I have a duty, a sacred obligation, to fight for the innocent, and by innocent we mean those who don't know because they have been deliberately deceived by the offspring of the serpent who have infiltrated the clerical ranks.
This is what Abp. Sheen meant all the way back in the 1970s when he said it's up to the laity to save the Church.
Emasculated men, weak, disgusting, revolting men have seized control of the Church, and they are leading hundreds of millions to Hell. They must be resisted and a great restoration must take place, purchased at the price of your blood and sweat.
This is what has happened throughout the Church's glorious history, but it has never happened on this kind of gigantic scale before.
Are you willing to commit your life to protecting the innocent? It's a simple question. Are you willing to take back your home?
Are you willing to have your eyes opened to the filth and the rot and the poison of Satan oozing out of nearly every crevice in the Church today?
It's time for Catholic men to stand up and do what needs to be done — for the sake of the innocent.


Theologian: Amazon Synod attempting to ‘demolish’ the Church from within

ROME, July 17, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — Another respected theologian is sounding the alarm on the upcoming Amazon Synod, saying it is an attempt to “create another church” by “demolishing” the true Church from within.
Monsignor Nicola Bux, a theologian and former consulter to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith during Benedict XVI’s pontificate, said in a recent interview that “what we are facing is an the attempt to genetically modify the Church.”
Asked why he believes the working document [Instrumentum laboris] for the upcoming synod has been so roundly criticized, Msgr. Bux, who now serves as theologian consulter to the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, said “in a certain sense, the answer was recently given by Pope Benedict [in an essay published after the Vatican sex abuse summit]: it is yet another attempt to ‘create another Church, an experiment already that was tried and failed.’”

“These clerics do not ask themselves the great question at the basis of Christianity: what did Jesus really bring us if — as we can see — he did not bring world peace, well-being for all, and a better world?,” Msgr. Bux said.
“Jesus Christ came to bring God to earth, so that man might find the way to heaven: that is why he founded the Church,” the Italian Monsignor said. “Instead, today’s clerics take care of the earth as if it were man’s permanent and lasting home. What is the symptom? They do not speak of the soul and therefore of its salvation.”
Msgr. Bux further noted that ideas once “denounced” by Joseph Ratzinger (as prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith) are now “coming to maturity” with the Amazon Synod.
“The Church is no longer considered the Mystical Body of Christ and the People of God oriented toward salvation, but a sociological phenomenon; thus it must deal with economics, ecology and politics, where at most it could intervene only for a moral judgment,” Msgr. Bux said.
He added that, under the influence of modernism, proponents of these ideas claim that “times have changed” and with them, “a new dogma” is needed. Yet he pointed out “this doesn’t answer the questions: who decided that times have changed? And is change always good?”
In the interview, which was republished on Pan-Amazon Synod Watch, Msgr. Bux also expressed concern over the working document’s downplaying of the need for faith in Christ, in order to be saved.
“Doubts that the Lord Jesus is the only Savior of mankind has been spreading in the Church since the post-conciliar period,” Msgr. Bux explained. “For some sectors of the Church, evangelisation has been reversed into ‘being evangelized,’” leading many “parishes and seminaries” to invite “atheistic or doubtful thinkers” to speak “rather than clear and definite Catholics.”
Msgr. Bux said “this has led to confusion and disorientation,” especially given the weak catechesis that many Catholics received in recent decades.
If it were not the case, he noted, “one could not explain the spectacle of vices and corruption that is gripping Italian and European society.” Nor could one explain how everyone is invited to “receive Communion at Mass, regardless of whether they are in the state of grace,” or even Catholic.
“The pastors of the Church must set forth doctrine according to the apostolic form in which it was entrusted to them (Rom 6:17),” the theologian said. “As Monsignor Carlo Maria Viganò recently replied in an interview [with the Washington Post]: ‘Dishonorably rebellious are those who presume to break or change the perennial tradition of the Church.’”
Speaking to the working document’s use of “inculturation,” Msgr. Bux said “it is presented in an inverted way: the intention is to return the Church in the Amazon to animism and spiritualism, making it withdraw from the Word that was announced to it through evangelization. ‘A natural religion with a Christian mask,’ as Cardinal Brandmüller said in his recent statement.”
Asked about the working document’s praise for the “cosmovision” of indigenous peoples, Msgr. Bux said it represents a “blurring of reason” and a return to “natural religion” and “spiritualism.”
Yet nature does have valuable lessons to teach us about the Church, the Italian theologian argued.
“The very development of nature, which happens in an organic way (so that what is false yesterday cannot be true today) should help us to understand that the Church’s teaching is a doctrinal, organic corpus,” he said.
“Instead,” he observed, “clerics are infected by a kind of Darwinism that results — as Cardinal Brandmüller wrote — in doctrinal and moral evolutionism; precisely the opposite of the organic development of a subject who remains faithful to its own identity.”

“Only this body can be called the Church, at least on the basis of the Vatican I and II Consitutions, Dei Filius, Lumen Gentium and Dei Verbum,” he said.
Msgr. Bux, who is also a liturgist, said signs of this Darwinian infection can be seen in the working document’s treatment of the sacraments, particularly Holy Orders.
“After all the pre-conciliar and post-conflict debate on the inseparability of power of order and jurisdiction,” he said, “the Instrumentum Laboris proposes the opposite in order to justify the ordained ministry for women. Thus, we move further away from the Eastern Churches.”
“Episcopal, priestly and diaconal identity must be understood from God who calls and the Church confirms it by ordination; not from the community, as if the Church were a democracy.”
Rejecting the document’s proposal to ordain married men, or viri probati, Msgr. Bux said “the history of the Church teaches that the crisis of priestly vocations is resolved through living faith: where the faith is alive, missionary vocations are born, until the emergence of institutes for the formation of indigenous clergy. The Lord always calls men to follow him!”
Regarding the working document’s proposal that the rite of Mass be adapted to local Amazonian customs, Msgr. Bux observed that the Roman Rite has been transmitted to various peoples across the world and is “an expression of the communion of all believers in Christ beyond language, nation and race.”
“While respecting cultures, the liturgy invites them to purify and sanctify themselves,” he said. “In truth,” he said, the working document’s treatment of the liturgy “is a question of an ill-concealed opposition to the Church of Rome.”
Msgr. Bux said it is “strange” that they want to do this centuries after the evangelization of the American continent, and the adoption of the Roman Rite. “Who informed the natives of the Amazon that ‘they were naked,’ i.e. without their own rite?,” he asked.
He said the proposed adoption of non-Christian customs into the liturgy is “incompatible” and “contradictory” with the Roman Rite, unless one wants to engage in “hybridization and syncretism that lead the faithful into error.”
“We are faced with the attempt to genetically modify the Church, calling into question the faith and unity of the Roman rite that expresses it (cf. Sacrosanctum Concilium nn 37-38),” he said.
In the interview, Msgr. Bux also said he finds it “incredible” that the Amazon is being considered as a “theological place,” i.e. a special source of revelation.
Seconding Cardinal Walter Brandmüller’s critique of the Instrumentum laboris, Msgr. Bux said that by calling into question divine Revelation, the document “detaches itself from the truth of the Catholic faith,” and amounts to “apostasy.”
Msgr. Bux noted said it is “significant” that the Instrumentum laboris has received the “enthusiastic approval — and perhaps the advice — of Leonardo Boff, a former Franciscan priest, a historical exponent of liberation theology who, in the 1970s, was admonished by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.”
The respected theologian concluded the interview, saying:
There is no liberation without conversion to Christ. The Instrumentum Laboris never mentions this term, which is at the beginning of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, but, as cardinals, priests and faithful have already observed, contradicting in decisive points the binding teaching of the Church — that is, to which every true Catholic is bound — it can be qualified as heretical. An attack on the foundations of the faith, which reduces the Catholic religion to pure subjectivism. It almost seems that it is Jesus Christ who must convert to the new Amazonian divinity. But is this “the Catholic faith transmitted by the Apostles,” as we pray in the Roman Canon?

Bergoglio is collaborating with the legalization of euthanasia: The Death of Vincent Lambert and the Silence of “Pope” Francis

Yet when a French high court ordered the starvation of tetraplegic #VincentLambert, the oh-so merciful “Pope” had nothing to say.

Frenchman starved to death by court order…

When it concerns a matter he really cares about, Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope” Francis) always has his trap open: Whether the topic be migrants, the poor, integral ecology, sustainable development, the elderly, climate change, clean water, albinos in Africa, educational initiatives for the youth in Argentina, or the rights of the indigenous in the Amazon region — for all those causes, Bergoglio couldn’t stop his tongue from moving if his life depended on it.
Of course no one is saying that these aren’t worthy causes for the most part — that’s not the point. Rather, the point is that Francis practices a rather obvious double standard, for when it comes to things of equal or greater importance, the Jesuit apostate suddenly discovers the importance of silence — and if he does say or do something, it’s usually only late in the game, after a sufficient amount of pressure, and/or in minimal fashion.
Here are some examples:
Sadly, the recent high-profile case of Vincent Lambert, a 42-year-old tetraplegic man in France, was no different for the otherwise garrulous pseudo-pope.
Lambert had suffered severe injuries in a motorcycle accident on Sep. 29, 2008, that left him “a brain-damaged paraplegic in a minimally conscious state”, according to a Life Site report by Jeanne Smits. Although he was connected to a feeding tube for nutrition and hydration, Lambert was not terminally ill and not in need of special treatment, nor was he on life support equipment, such as a respirator. He was not dying but was quite alive.
His severe handicap, however, was enough for a number of people to seek his death:
His wife and six of his siblings supported a recommendation made by doctors in 2013 that the provision of nutrition and hydration through a gastric tube should be stopped. Lambert was able to breathe on his own.
But Lambert’s parents and two other siblings had fought the decision in courts, insisting as the Catholic Church does that nutrition and hydration are not extraordinary measures for prolonging his life.
Doctors at the clinic in Reims, France, where Lambert had been cared for, started withdrawing nutrition and hydration in May when a court ruled in his wife’s favor.
However, a few hours later, an appeals court reversed the decision and ordered a resumption of tube feeding and hydration.
In late June, another court ruled that care could be discontinued; doctors began withholding nutrition and hydration July 2.
(“Pope laments death of Vincent Lambert”La Croix International, July 15, 2019)
Lambert died on July 11, a full nine days after nutrition and hydration were withheld from him, and only because they were withheld.
What is even more shocking is that during his starvation ordeal Lambert “received no deep sedation and … during the first days of his agony, he was moaning and groaning, gasping for breath, and crying”, as related by his mother, Viviane, “who could not even give him a drink”. “He also had quieter moments but his eyes were open and he reacted to Viviane when she talked to him until then”, according to a July 11 article by Smits.
And where was Francis? Where was the Vatican?
For his favorite political issues, Francis has lots of time and lots to say. He is able to crank out book-length interviews, addresses, statements, special audiences, forewords, livestreams, video messages — you name it. He had a special message for the Super Bowl in 2017, shared words of wisdom with the same year’s G20 Summit, and blathered at the youth in a video message for a TED conference. Even personal phone calls or in-person visits are not out of the question for something that is dear to him. Two years ago he had fun chatting with astronauts on the International Space Station, and he once even found time to write the foreword to a psychotherapist’s book about the bad habit of complaining.
The fact is that Francis has plenty of time and energy — when it concerns something he actually cares about! As we’ve found out, that’s how it works with his knees, too: He is quite capable of kneeling, he just needs to find a good enough reason to actually do so. Too bad the Feast of Corpus Christi isn’t one for him.
So, what is Francis’ record on the Vincent Lambert case, which is clearly setting a judicial precedent in France for the fate of the handicapped who are effectively deemed “useless eaters” and therefore “unworthy of life”?
In 2018, Francis mentioned Vincent Lambert by name twice (April 15 and April 18) but only briefly as part of his post-Audience/Regina Caeli shout-outs. That’s the time when he makes fleeting remarks on world affairs, requests prayers for various intentions, and greets various pilgrim groups in attendance, such as the dairy farmers from Lesotho or the newlyweds from Micronesia.
On May 20, 2019, Francis sent a generic tweet about protecting human life, by which he includes, of course, opposition to the death penalty, which is not a “natural end” to life:

Whenever Francis or some other Novus Ordo big shot speaks out against murder, he will typically put it in general terms that lump together and condemn all killing, even that which is just and necessary, such as capital punishment meted out by the state for capital crimes, or killing enemy combatants in a just war. In this manner, innocent victims like Lambert or Gard are effectively put on a par with the most heinous criminals, such as Albert Fish, James DeBardeleben, or this monster.
On July 10, roughly a week after the hospital had begun starving Lambert to death, Francis tortured himself to release the following tweet:

The Novus Ordo news video site Rome Reports seriously attempted to spin this tweet into a “strong plea for Vincent Lambert’s life” on the part of Francis, when it was clearly no such thing. First, because it does not mention Lambert by name at all; second, because it does not address his case even in general terms. Lambert was not “left to die.” He wasn’t dying at all. He was starved to death. He was dehydrated to death. If putting a convicted murderer in a prison cell and giving him no food or water until he is dead were a method of execution in the United States, the entire world would decry it as barbaric, inhumane, and excessively cruel. Francis himself would omit no opportunity to denounce and condemn it.
Not so in the case of Vincent Lambert, an innocent man whose only objectionable deed was that he was too ill to feed himself.
Not surprisingly, once Lambert’s court-ordered murder had been carried out successfully, Francis suddenly managed to remember his name again:

Thus far Francis’ personal interventions, or lack thereof. Too bad Lambert wasn’t a migrant trying to break down a border fence somewhere.
On May 21, the Vatican’s Dicastery for the Laity, Family and Life and the Pontifical Academy for Life had released the following joint statement:
In full agreement with the affirmations of the Archbishop of Reims, H.E. Msgr. Éric de Moulins-Beaufort, and the auxiliary bishop, H.E. Msgr. Bruno Feillet, in relation to the sad case of Mr. Vincent Lambert, we wish to reiterate the grave violation of the dignity of the person that the withdrawal of nutrition and hydration would constitute. Indeed, the “vegetative state” is certainly a burdensome pathological state, which however does not in any way compromise the dignity of those people who find themselves in this condition, nor does it compromise their fundamental rights to life and to care, understood as the continuity of basic human assistance.
Nutrition and hydration constitute a form of essential care, always proportionate to life support: to nourish a sick person never constitutes a form of unreasonable therapeutic obstinacy, as long as the person is able to receive nutrition and hydration, provided this does not cause intolerable suffering or prove damaging to the patient.
The suspension of such care represents, rather, a form of abandonment of the patient, based on a pitiless judgment of the quality of life, expression of a throwaway culture that selects the most fragile and helpless people, without recognizing their uniqueness and immense value. The continuity of assistance is an inescapable duty.
We therefore hope that solutions may be found as soon as possible to protect Mr. Lambert’s life. To this end, we assure the prayer of the Holy Father and all the Church.
(“Declaration on the case of Mr. Vincent Lambert”, Dicastery for Laity, Family and Life, May 21, 2019)
The text was signed by McCarrick associate “Cardinal” Kevin Farrell and the scandal-ridden “Abp.” Vincenzo Paglia. Impressive! A few lines of text about human dignity from two Vatican officials nobody knows or pays any attention to. The only thing missing was a quote from Evangelii Gaudium.
A day before Lambert’s death, the Italian periodical Famiglia Christiana published an article penned by Paglia that effectively undid the May 21 declaration’s call for the protection of Lambert’s life and which “perpetuates the confusion between medical treatment and administration of food and fluids”, as one critical review put it.
After Lambert’s passing, Vatican News published a report that put a spin on the facts: “Lambert’s wife and some of his siblings wanted care to be withdrawn, but his Catholic parents, backed by other relatives, launched a series of legal bids to force doctors to keep him alive” (underlining added). This choice of words makes it appear as though Lambert was dying and the hospital was artificially keeping him alive. But that is not so. A report by AsiaNews.it hits the nail on the head: “He died of hunger and thirst, but was not near death and did not need machines to support his vital functions. But his doctors and wife decided he had to die.”
By contrast to all these reactions, the conservative “Cardinal” Robert Sarah, Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship, erred on the opposite side, claiming that Lambert had “died as a martyr”. Except he didn’t. He was murdered, yes; but he was not martyred. While it is true that Lambert was “a victim of the frightful madness of the men of our time”, as Sarah accurately described the situation, that is not what martyrdom is.
Donald Attwater’s Catholic Dictionary defines martyrdom as the “voluntary endurance of death for the Catholic faith, or for any article thereof, or for the preservation of some Christian virtue, or for some other act of virtue relating to God” (s.v. “Martyrdom”). Lambert was cruelly murdered in cold blood, but he was not killed for the Catholic Faith or for some supernatural virtue; so to apply the label of “martyr” here dangerously reduces martyrdom to the suffering of any kind of death that is brought about deliberately and unjustly, thereby making the concept meaningless. Sarah also contradicted himself when he said that he “pray[s] for the eternal repose of the soul of Vincent Lambert”, since it makes no sense to pray for the souls of genuine martyrs, who, rather, ought to be invoked to pray for us: “…the Church never prays for the repose of the souls of martyrs” (Catholic Dictionary).
The 2008 accident that put Lambert into this horrifying condition was a very tragic occurrence, but accidents do happen. Much more tragic, on the other hand, is how Lambert’s life was implicitly declared by courts to be superfluous and therefore ordered to be disposed of.
When people are diagnosed as being in a so-called “vegetative state”, this does not necessarily mean that they are not conscious, not aware of their surroundings, as patients who have come out of such a state have testified. In any case, we do not cease to be human simply because we cannot move, or cannot feed ourselves, or are unable to communicate. Human life is not the sum total of various bodily functions.
The following video shows Lambert weeping after hearing that the court had ordered him to be starved to death. His mother beautifully attempts to console him, telling him repeatedly, “Don’t cry” (ne pleure pas):

Lambert’s parents are now pressing murder charges against his doctors. Murder is the deliberate and direct killing of the innocent, and it is one of only four sins that cry to Heaven for vengeance (the other three are sodomy, oppression of the poor, and defrauding the laborer of his just wages).
It is certainly true that no one is obliged to use extraordinary means to prolong his life, but this is not even relevant here: Lambert was not hooked up to life support; he was merely fed through a feeding tube. When it was disconnected, he wasn’t “allowed to die”; he was forcibly dehydrated and starved to death because a court had decided it was in his “best interest.”
Years ago there was a debate among sedevacantist priests as to whether or not a feeding tube constituted extraordinary means — with no Pope to render an authoritative decision, the issue could not be settled. However, this debate need not concern us here, for our focal point in this post is the behavior of Francis, whose own religion has judged feeding tubes to be merely ordinary means.
To sum up: Vincent Lambert was lying in a hospital bed, too ill to feed himself. For nine days the hospital refused to give food or water to him, until he died — and the ever-talkative “Pope” had practically nothing to say.

“For I was hungry, and you gave me not to eat: I was thirsty, and you gave me not to drink. Amen I say to you, as long as you did it not to one of these least, neither did you do it to me” (Mt 25:42,45).

Francis Engaged in Propaganda For corrupt socialist politician Pro Gay and abortionist

en.news During his July 7 lunch in the General House of the Jesuits in Rome, Pope Francis received the Brazilian "Free Lula Movement".

Luiz Lula is a former salon-socialist president of Brazil, admired by the oligarch media, and jailed since April 2018 for [alleged] corruption. Francis supported him in the past.

The day after the meeting, Lula’s Twitter account published a picture of Francis and the Jesuit Superior General, Father Arturo Sosa, accepting a shirt with propaganda for the liberation of pro-gay and pro-abortion Lula who presents himself as a "Catholic".

Francis – who likes to preach against corruption - never addressed the corruption charges against Lula. 

Archbishop Fulton Sheen on the False Prophet & the Antichrist: The third temptation in which Satan asked Christ to adore him and all the kingdoms of the world would be His, will become the temptation to have a new religion without a Cross, a liturgy without a world to come, a religion to destroy a religion, or a politics which is a religion--one that renders unto Caesar even the things that are God's.

In the midst of all his seeming love for humanity and his glib talk of freedom and equality, he will have one great secret which he will tell to no one: he will not believe in God. Because his religion will be brotherhood without the fatherhood of God, he will deceive even the elect. He will set up a counterchurch which will be the ape of the Church, because he, the Devil, is the ape of God. It will have all the notes and characteristics of the Church, but in reverse and emptied of its divine content. It will be a mystical body of the Antichrist that will in all externals resemble the mystical body of Christ.

Upon receiving the Scapular of the Virgin of Carmen we become members of the order and we commit ourselves to live a holy life imitating her purity

“No one can live continually in sin and continue to say the Rosary: Either they will give up sin or they will give up the Rosary.” -Bishop Hugh Boyle

One Day, through the Rosary and the Scapular, I will save the world 
(Our Lady to St. Dominic)

  The great Jesuit Cardinal and Doctor of the Church, St. Robert Bellarmine, S.J., teacher and spiritual director of St. Aloysius Gonzaga, defended the use of Our Lady's Scapular:

"Anyone dying in Mary's family will receive from her at the hour of death either the grace of perseverance in the state of grace or the grace of final contrition." 

St. Dominic : 'To my Order, the Blessed Virgin will entrust a devotion to be known as the rosary and to your Order, Angelus, she will entrust a devotion to be known as the scapular. One day, through the rosary and the scapular, she will save the world.'

     Pope St. Pius X was a Carmelite Tertiary who faithfully wore the Scapular.  When missionaries from tropical countries asked Pope St. Pius X for a special favor - to have the cloth scapular replaced by a medal.  St. Pius X granted their request.  The Scapular Medal was to have the Sacred Heart of Jesus on one side and Our Lady of Mount Carmel on the other.  St. Pius X stated: "We grant the use of the Scapular Medal, but We prefer that the cloth scapular be used." 

Pope Benedict XV addressed the seminarians of Rome on the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel: "Let all of you have a common language and a common armor: the language the sentences of the Gospel- the common armor the Scapular of the Virgin of Carmel which you ought to wear and which enjoys the singular privilege and protection after death."


O Mary, Queen and Mother of Carmel, I come today to consecrate myself to you, for my whole life is but a small return for the many graces and blessings that have come from God to me through your hands. Since you look with special kindness on those who wear your Scapular, I implore you to strengthen my weakness with your power, to enlighten the darkness of my mind with your wisdom, and to increase in me Faith, Hope and Charity that I may repay each day my debt of humble homage to you.

May your Scapular bring me your special protection in my daily struggle to be faithful to your Divine Son and to you. May it separate me from all that is sinful in life and remind me constantly of my duty to imitate your virtues. From now on, I shall strive to live in God's Presence, and offer all to Jesus through you. Dearest Mother, support me by your never-failing love and lead me to paradise through the merits of Christ and your own intercession. Amen.

Superior General of the Order, Father Kilian Lynch: Let us not conclude, however, that the Scapular is endowed with some kind of supernatural power, which will save us, no matter what we do, or how much we sin. We might apply here what St. Alphonsus says about devotion to Mary in general: “When we declare that it is impossible for a servant of Mary to be lost, we do not mean those who, by their devotion to Mary, think themselves warranted to sin freely. We state that these reckless people, because of their presumption, deserve to be treated with rigor and not with kindness. We speak here of the servants of Mary who, to the fidelity with which they honor and invoke her, join the desire to amend their lives. I hold it morally impossible that these be lost.”

St. Pius X: Therefore, each one must be persuaded that, if the piety that he declares towards the Blessed Virgin does not separate him from sin or does not stimulate him to the decision to amend the bad habits, his piety is artificial and false, because it lacks its own and genuine fruit.

Prayer to the Queen of Carmel

O glorious Virgin Mary! Queen of Carmel, Mother of God and of poor sinners; special Protectress of all those who wear thy holy Scapular, I supplicate thee, by the glory that has been accorded thee by the Incarnate Word in choosing thee for His Mother, to obtain for me the pardon of my sins, amendment of my life, salvation of my soul, consolation in my pains, and in particular the grace I now ask, provided it be conformable to the will of thy divine Son. Amen.
