O Eternal Father, after having thanked thy infinite bounty for thy exceeding benefits in the past, we humbly implore pardon for our manifold sins and negligences, for the time we have consumed and wasted in vanities and in things that profit not unto salvation, and for the woeful want of correspondence with Thy graces which we have so habitually manifested.
But filled with confidence in Thy mercy, so lavishly displayed in a multitude of ways, we ask Thy blessings upon our good purposes and resolutions. For now we renew the sacred promises we made in Baptism, when we first became Thy children and heirs of the heavenly kingdom, and we renounce Satan with all his works and pomps.
Firmly convinced that the salvation of our immortal souls is the one great business of life, the purpose for which we have come into the world, we solemnly resolve for the future not only to do all in our power to avoid every grievous sin in thought, word, and deed but also to shun every unnecessary occasion that might imperil our souls. We further resolve to fulfill with greater exactness and fidelity the duties of our station in life, to give more attention to our progress in things spiritual, to be more devoted to holy Mass, to receive the Sacraments more frequently, and to pray more often and more fervently.
Bless, O my God, these good resolutions which we offer to Thee at this, the threshold of a new year. Give us Thy precious grace and make us truly wise. The days and years of our life are passing so swiftly away. Help us, in Thy mercy, to utilize them, as we ought to do, for Thy greater honor and glory, for the good of our neighbor, and for our sanctification. The night cometh in which no man can work longer; soon, at best, we shall have to appear before Thee to render an account of our stewardship. May we then be found worthy to receive from Thee that divine welcome: "Well done, good and faithful servants, enter into the joy of thy Lord."
PRAYER TO CONSECRATE THE NEW YEAR
O Sweet Savior of my Soul! From the depths of my heart I salute Thee at the beginning of this year. O my Infant Savior, I most confidently approach Thy crib and implore Thee to give efficacy by Thy Precious Blood to the resolutions I now make, of living from this moment in the manner I shall wish to have done when time shall be about to close forever on me.
May each action of the coming year be offered in union with the adorable actions of Thy mortal life; may every intention be renounced save that of laboring for Thy love and glory. O merciful Jesus! By the helplessness of Thy Holy Infancy, strengthen my weakness and fortify my resolution nevermore to offend Thee. Amen.
The character of an evil man can be seen in the way he reacts to an unexpected circumstance. The bad man drops his mask while the prudent man reacts with peace. Like when Jesus Christ was pushed when the woman touched her garments in the crowd, he simply asked who had touched him. He taught us that if someone slapped us, we would give the other cheek not to return it. Even when Jesus Christ was slapped he asked: why do you hit me? Here we see how Bergoglio in all disobeys the Word of God This man is not spiritual but mundane.
Romans 12:17 To no man rendering evil for evil. Providing good things, not only in the sight of God, but also in the sight of all men.
Bergoglio continues to despise and ridicule the papacy established by Christ. Being a pope is not a title but an office of shepherding the flock of Christ; which consists in faithfully teaching the deposit of faith and confirming the brothers in the Catholic faith. St. Thomas Cajetan, O.P. (1469-1534) Theologian and Cardinal
He points out that the famous axiom "Ubi Petrus, ibi Ecclesia" (Where the Pope is, there is also the Church) holds true only when the Pope acts and behaves as the Pope, because Peter "is subject to the duties of the Office" otherwise, "neither is the Church in him, nor is he in the Church." Bergoglio is a heretic, apostate and enemy of the Church and enemy of Christ and has openly declared war on us Catholics.
en.news For Cardinal Raymond Burke Francis' call for an “ecological conversion” is “a push for worshipping ‘Mother Earth.’”
Burke told TheWandererPress.com (December 26) that “our mother is not the earth” or “a pagan idol like Pachamama” but Our Lady.
The term “ecological conversion” is used to forward a one-world government, Burke explains. He calls this a "masonic idea" of "completely secularised people" who deny that God governs the world.
The most negative outcome of the Amazon Synod’s final document is for him the point about abolishing celibacy which cannot be presented as a measure limited to the Pan-Amazon region.
Burke calls this a “deceit” as the German Church will argue that what is good for the Amazon, is good for the universal Church.
For the cardinal, Francis’ Abu Dhabi declaration that God wills false religions, is “false” and “heretical”. The argument of God's permissive will cannot be used as “it is understood that what He permits is not His will and is, in effect, contrary to His will.”
But even if we or an angel[a] from heaven should proclaim to you a gospel contrary to what we proclaimed to you, let that one be accursed!

He lists them: “heterosexual and homosexual, married and unmarried, dual parent and single parent, legally sanctioned as well as unlicensed.”
Twitter’s "the chapel walls" replied, “On the Feast of the Holy Family let’s instead celebreate the Holy Family. And leave the blasephmy off.”

Francis Audience: Picking Nose, Boy Ballet, Moslem Kisses Ring (Video)
en.news Francis assisted at a strange ballet performance (video below) of a young boy in the Vatican’s Audience Hall during a November 30 meeting with the “First ever I can. Children’s global summit.”
The event was sponsored by FIDAE, the official federation of Catholic schools in Italy which is promoting the “Design for Change” pedagogy developed by Kiran Bir Sethi in India.
The meeting experienced a little drawback in the beginning when Francis forgot where he was and started picking his nose while talking to Cardinal Versaldi.
At the end, Francis hobbled toward the crowd and was greeted with cold and distant handshakes, except for a Moslem woman who kissed his ring and one little South-American sister who later emulated her. VIDEO

Francis' Pachamama Concert: What Do the Crossed Arms Mean?
en.newsThe Gloria.tv report about the Pachamama catechesis during the Vatican's Christmas concert - with bishops crossing their arms over their chests in order to "feel" the "heart of Mother Earth" - provoked an international outcry.
The pictures of the cross-armed bishops reminded some observers of similar gestures during Masonic rituals (picture below).
The shepherd pictured on Cardinal Bergoglio's golden and Francis silver pectoral cross also makes this gesture.
In 1947, Pope Pius XII condemned the crucifixes that show the Risen Christ (called "Resurrexifixes"), crosses that do not show the sufferings of Christ.
On the pectoral cross of the pope Francis, Jesus is not crucified…
When you eliminate the crucifixion, there is no more redemption.
alda luisa corsini The Good Shepherd never has his arms crossed in early Christian art because his hands are used to squeeze the sheep's legs.This is the only image I know where the hands are somewhat close together but not crossed:
TIA: The fact that ---Francis did not choose a new cross, but kept the one he had as Archbishop, seems to reveal that he does not consider the dignity of a Pope to be essentially higher than that of a Bishop. This also is confirmed by his insistence on being called Bishop of Rome, instead of Pope.
Marcello Pera accuses Bergoglio of betraying doctrine, Tradition
by Jules Gomes • ChurchMilitant.com • December 28, 2019
ROME (ChurchMilitant.com) - Italy's leading philosopher and close friend of Pope Benedict XVI is lambasting Pope Francis for "openly going against tradition, doctrine and introducing inexplicable innovations, behaviors and gestures."
Professor Marcello Pera, an atheist and a vocal opponent of postmodernism and cultural relativism, called the Francis pontificate "a scandal in the biblical sense," as "it confuses and makes the faithful fall, it does not bear fruit, and on the contrary, it diminishes them."
As for the foundations of Catholicism, this pontificate is an outrage to reason.Tweet
Vocations and Mass attendance have dropped, fundraising is at an all-time low and audiences at the Angelus in St. Peter's Square have thinned considerably under Pope Francis, as seen in images of papal events, according to the former president of the Italian Senate in comments to La Fede Quotidiana last Thursday.
"As for the foundations of the Catholic faith, this pontificate is an outrage to reason," the former professor of philosophy at the University of Pisa lamented. "But no one, faithful or bishops, says anything, no one has the courage to protest, yet many are doubting [the achievements of this papacy]."
"Let's say clearly that what is happening is very serious. By now a large part of Catholics are resigned, have no awareness and are without enthusiasm, they do not react with the determination that would be necessary," Pera remarked, speaking in Italian.
Addressing the crisis facing Western culture and the precarious future of Europe, the influential intellectual pointed out how Catholic leaders and media are "either silent or have spoken mildly" while Catholicism is being attacked, but would have "ardently defended Muslims and Jews."
"This is not tolerance, but surrender," he said, "to lower one's trousers before secularism and relativism."
"Catholicism has long since degraded; it is losing its cultural and religious battle," he continued. "Catholic authorities are afraid and are a sad sight. The faithful mirror of this situation is at the top."
Calling the former pontiff "a profound theologian and an original thinker," he predicted the Islamization of Europe, if it "went ahead with its relativist culture, with the rejection of its tradition, with its low birth rates, and with indiscriminate immigration."
"Maybe we have already been dealt a blow to the heart and don't notice it. What Pope Ratzinger says in Without Roots comes to mind: The impression today is that Europe resembles the Roman Empire at its fall," he emphasized.
"The problem is that the Church is reduced to a kind of NGO, takes more care of the social, has transformed Greta [Thunberg] into an idol, runs after solidarity, political and social visions to do-goodism, but pastors often forget the salvation of souls, which is their main task," the atheist complained.
A close friend of the Pope Emeritus, Pera said he hadn't spoken to Benedict for some time but could "speculate that he is sorry and alarmed." However, Benedict did not want to and was unable to intervene, as "he has chosen silence and correctly maintains his commitment."
In contrast, Pope Francis seems to have no problem with the crisis engulfing Europe: "He is someone who wants to please, he likes people who like him, he follows the politically correct," said Pera.
He has turned Catholicism into "a Church so outgoing that it can no longer be found anywhere," he added.
He is someone who wants to please, he likes people who like him, he follows the politically correct.Tweet
The philosopher, who has repeatedly warned against the advance of Islam in the West, reiterated his belief that "Islam is not a creed of peace and mercy, as they want us to believe, but calls for oppression."
"With this belief, dialogue is problematic, without first clarifying the fundamental concepts of mutual respect and obedience to the laws of the state and western values," he explained.
In a 2017 interview with Il Mattino, Pera robustly criticized Francis' open-borders policy:
Frankly, I do not get this pope, whatever he says is beyond any rational understanding. I ask myself: Why does he say it? What is the true end of his words? Why does he lack a minimum of realism, that very little that is requested of anyone? The answer I can give myself is only one: The Pope does it because he hates the West, he aspires to destroy it, and he does all he can to reach this end. And he aspires to destroy the Christian tradition, Christianity as it has realized itself historically.
He concluded, "Bergoglio just wants to do politics, the gospel does not matter at all."
The Holy See Press Office has not responded to the interview.
