Prayers for the Faithful Departed

 It is therefore a holy and wholesome thought to pray for the dead, 

that they may be loosed from sins."--2 Machabees 12:46

The Holy Souls are those who have died in the state of grace but who are not yet free from all punishment due to their unforgiven venial sins and all other sins already forgiven for which satisfaction is still to be made. They are certain of entering Heaven, but first they must suffer in Purgatory. The Holy Souls cannot help themselves because for them the night has come, when no man can work (John 9:4). It is our great privilege that we can shorten their time of separation from God by our prayers, good works, and, especially, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.

The doctrine of Purgatory gives to Catholics comfort and joy. They feel the black gulf of death is bridged across, and they are still knit together to those near and dear to them in the bonds of love and sympathy. The sting of death and the sharpness of its sorrow is mitigated by the thought that they are still bound to these departed by the golden chain of prayer.

The Council of Trent told us "That there is a Purgatory and that the souls there detained are assisted by the most acceptable sacrifice of the altar."


Invocation for the Holy Souls

Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord; and let perpetual light shine upon them. May they rest in peace. Amen.

(Indulgence of 300 days, applicable only to the holy souls. (582)

For the Holy Souls in Purgatory

My Jesus, by the sorrows Thou didst suffer in Thine agony in the Garden, in Thy scourging and crowning with thorns, in the way to Calvary, in Thy crucifixion and death, have mercy on the souls in purgatory, and especially on those that are most forsaken; do Thou deliver them from the dire torments they endure; call them and admit them to Thy most sweet embrace in paradise.

Our Father, Hail Mary, Eternal rest, etc. (Indulgence of 500 days. (596))

A Prayer for Deceased Parents

O God, Who hast commanded us to honor our father and our mother, in Thy mercy have pity on the souls of my father and mother, and forgive them their trespasses, and make me to see them again in the joy of everlasting brightness. Through Christ Our Lord. Amen

(The Roman Missal)


A Prayer for the Souls in Purgatory

O most gentle Heart of Jesus, ever present in the Blessed Sacrament, ever consumed with burning love for the poor captive souls in Purgatory, have mercy on the souls of Thy departed servants. Be not severe in Thy judgments, but let some drops of Thy Precious Blood fall upon the devouring flames. And do Thou, O Merciful Saviour, send Thy holy angels to conduct them to a place of refreshment, light and peace. Amen

Viganò to Trump: There is a Global Plan Against God and Man



to the President of the United States of America

Sunday, October 25, 2020

Solemnity of Christ the King


Mister President,


            Allow me to address you at this hour in which the fate of the whole world is being threatened by a global conspiracy against God and humanity. I write to you as an Archbishop, as a Successor of the Apostles, as the former Apostolic Nuncio to the United States of America. I am writing to you in the midst of the silence of both civil and religious authorities. May you accept these words of mine as the “voice of one crying out in the desert” (Jn 1:23).


            As I said when I wrote my letter to you in June, this historical moment sees the forces of Evil aligned in a battle without quarter against the forces of Good; forces of Evil that appear powerful and organized as they oppose the children of Light, who are disoriented and disorganized, abandoned by their temporal and spiritual leaders.


            Daily we sense the attacks multiplying of those who want to destroy the very basis of society: the natural family, respect for human life, love of country, freedom of education and business. We see heads of nations and religious leaders pandering to this suicide of Western culture and its Christian soul, while the fundamental rights of citizens and believers are denied in the name of a health emergency that is revealing itself more and more fully as instrumental to the establishment of an inhuman faceless tyranny.


            A global plan called the Great Reset is underway. Its architect is a global élite that wants to subdue all of humanity, imposing coercive measures with which to drastically limit individual freedoms and those of entire populations. In several nations this plan has already been approved and financed; in others it is still in an early stage. Behind the world leaders who are the accomplices and executors of this infernal project, there are unscrupulous characters who finance the World Economic Forum and Event 201, promoting their agenda.


            The purpose of the Great Reset is the imposition of a health dictatorship aiming at the imposition of liberticidal measures, hidden behind tempting promises of ensuring a universal income and cancelling individual debt. The price of these concessions from the International Monetary Fund will be the renunciation of private property and adherence to a program of vaccination against Covid-19 and Covid-21 promoted by Bill Gates with the collaboration of the main pharmaceutical groups. Beyond the enormous economic interests that motivate the promoters of the Great Reset, the imposition of the vaccination will be accompanied by the requirement of a health passport and a digital ID, with the consequent contact tracing of the population of the entire world. Those who do not accept these measures will be confined in detention camps or placed under house arrest, and all their assets will be confiscated. 


            Mr. President, I imagine that you are already aware that in some countries the Great Reset will be activated between the end of this year and the first trimester of 2021. For this purpose, further lockdowns are planned, which will be officially justified by a supposed second and third wave of the pandemic. You are well aware of the means that have been deployed to sow panic and legitimize draconian limitations on individual liberties, artfully provoking a world-wide economic crisis. In the intentions of its architects, this crisis will serve to make the recourse of nations to the Great Reset irreversible, thereby giving the final blow to a world whose existence and very memory they want to completely cancel. But this world, Mr. President, includes people, affections, institutions, faith, culture, traditions, and ideals: people and values that do not act like automatons, who do not obey like machines, because they are endowed with a soul and a heart, because they are tied together by a spiritual bond that draws its strength from above, from that God that our adversaries want to challenge, just as Lucifer did at the beginning of time with his non serviam.


            Many people – as we well know – are annoyed by this reference to the clash between Good and Evil and the use of “apocalyptic” overtones, which according to them exasperates spirits and sharpens divisions. It is not surprising that the enemy is angered at being discovered just when he believes he has reached the citadel he seeks to conquer undisturbed. What is surprising, however, is that there is no one to sound the alarm. The reaction of the deep state to those who denounce its plan is broken and incoherent, but understandable. Just when the complicity of the mainstream media had succeeded in making the transition to the New World Order almost painless and unnoticed, all sorts of deceptions, scandals and crimes are coming to light.


            Until a few months ago, it was easy to smear as “conspiracy theorists” those who denounced these terrible plans, which we now see being carried out down to the smallest detail. No one, up until last February, would ever have thought that, in all of our cities, citizens would be arrested simply for wanting to walk down the street, to breathe, to want to keep their business open, to want to go to church on Sunday. Yet now it is happening all over the world, even in picture-postcard Italy that many Americans consider to be a small enchanted country, with its ancient monuments, its churches, its charming cities, its characteristic villages. And while the politicians are barricaded inside their palaces promulgating decrees like Persian satraps, businesses are failing, shops are closing, and people are prevented from living, traveling, working, and praying. The disastrous psychological consequences of this operation are already being seen, beginning with the suicides of desperate entrepreneurs and of our children, segregated from friends and classmates, told to follow their classes while sitting at home alone in front of a computer.


            In Sacred Scripture, Saint Paul speaks to us of “the one who opposes” the manifestation of the mystery of iniquity, the kathèkon (2 Thess 2:6-7). In the religious sphere, this obstacle to evil is the Church, and in particular the papacy; in the political sphere, it is those who impede the establishment of the New World Order.


            As is now clear, the one who occupies the Chair of Peter has betrayed his role from the very beginning in order to defend and promote the globalist ideology, supporting the agenda of the deep church, who chose him from its ranks.


            Mr. President, you have clearly stated that you want to defend the nation – One Nation under God, fundamental liberties, and non-negotiable values that are denied and fought against today. It is you, dear President, who are “the one who opposes” the deep state, the final assault of the children of darkness.


            For this reason, it is necessary that all people of good will be persuaded of the epochal importance of the imminent election: not so much for the sake of this or that political program, but because of the general inspiration of your action that best embodies – in this particular historical context – that world, our world, which they want to cancel by means of the lockdown. Your adversary is also our adversary: it is the Enemy of the human race, He who is “a murderer from the beginning” (Jn 8:44).


            Around you are gathered with faith and courage those who consider you the final garrison against the world dictatorship. The alternative is to vote for a person who is manipulated by the deep state, gravely compromised by scandals and corruption, who will do to the United States what Jorge Mario Bergoglio is doing to the Church, Prime Minister Conte to Italy, President Macron to France, Prime Minster Sanchez to Spain, and so on. The blackmailable nature of Joe Biden – just like that of the prelates of the Vatican’s “magic circle” – will expose him to be used unscrupulously, allowing illegitimate powers to interfere in both domestic politics as well as international balances. It is obvious that those who manipulate him already have someone worse than him ready, with whom they will replace him as soon as the opportunity arises.

            And yet, in the midst of this bleak picture, this apparently unstoppable advance of the “Invisible Enemy,” an element of hope emerges. The adversary does not know how to love, and it does not understand that it is not enough to assure a universal income or to cancel mortgages in order to subjugate the masses and convince them to be branded like cattle. This people, which for too long has endured the abuses of a hateful and tyrannical power, is rediscovering that it has a soul; it is understanding that it is not willing to exchange its freedom for the homogenization and cancellation of its identity; it is beginning to understand the value of familial and social ties, of the bonds of faith and culture that unite honest people. This Great Reset is destined to fail because those who planned it do not understand that there are still people ready to take to the streets to defend their rights, to protect their loved ones, to give a future to their children and grandchildren. The leveling inhumanity of the globalist project will shatter miserably in the face of the firm and courageous opposition of the children of Light. The enemy has Satan on its side, He who only knows how to hate. But on our side, we have the Lord Almighty, the God of armies arrayed for battle, and the Most Holy Virgin, who will crush the head of the ancient Serpent. “If God is for us, who can be against us?” (Rom 8:31).


            Mr. President, you are well aware that, in this crucial hour, the United States of America is considered the defending wall against which the war declared by the advocates of globalism has been unleashed. Place your trust in the Lord, strengthened by the words of the Apostle Paul: “I can do all things in Him who strengthens me” (Phil 4:13). To be an instrument of Divine Providence is a great responsibility, for which you will certainly receive all the graces of state that you need, since they are being fervently implored for you by the many people who support you with their prayers.


            With this heavenly hope and the assurance of my prayer for you, for the First Lady, and for your collaborators, with all my heart I send you my blessing.


            God bless the United States of America!

Apostate Jorge Bergoglio Backs ‘Married’ Gays Who Rented Uterus


by Jules Gomes •  ChurchMilitant.com •  October 28, 2020   

Gay parents lauded in 'Francesco' dismiss mom as 'anthropological construct'

ROME (ChurchMilitant.com) - A gay couple favored by a phone call from Pope Francis and featured in the documentary Francesco are not only "married" but also hired a lesbian surrogate to have three children, Church Militant has learned.

The gay couple and their children

Andrea Rubera and Dario De Gregorio, who are credited with convincing the pope that "homosexuals have the right to have a family," were "married" in Canada in 2009 and had three children in Canada through lesbian surrogate mother Kerilyn. 

Rubera appears in gay filmmaker Evgeny Afineevsky's documentary Francesco presented at the Rome Film Festival last week. 

The Italian couple arranged for Rubera's sperm to first be used to create daughter Artemisia. This was followed by De Gregorio's sperm used in the reproduction of twins Chloe and Iacopo.

Italian law expressly prohibits medically assisted procreation to protect children from being turned into commodities, as well as to protect surrogate mothers from exploitation by treating the surrogate mother as a means to an end.

Francis Afoul of Church Teaching

A leading Rome-based canonist told Church Militant that the "Instruction On Respect For Human Life In Its Origin And On The Dignity Of Procreation Replies To Certain Questions Of The Day," issued by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) in 1987, clearly prohibits artificial insemination, surrogate pregnancy and the intentional deprivation of the conceived child's right to his natural mother and father united in the bonds of holy matrimony.

These are "all traits of the relationship between the two sodomites whom Francis was referencing as an example of a couple deserving of certain 'rights,'" the canonist stated.

Pope Francis' words are but another grievous example of him affirming two mutually contradictory statements regarding the same subject matter.Tweet

The homoparental duo applauded Francis for unconditionally welcoming them into the Church as a homosexual couple with children. In 2015, Rubera handed the pontiff a letter at Santa Marta where his parish was having a meeting, pleading:

Both Dario and I are Catholics. We grew up in the parish as scout leaders. For us it was important our children could also attend parish activities, but we were doubtful if this could be a pitfall for the children and cause them stress and displeasure because of our family.

Two days later, Francis phoned Rubera: "I'm Pope Francis. I called you twice, but you didn't answer. I read your letter. It's beautiful, and I understood your point of view."

In 2013 Apostate Bergoglio legitimized the false and unbiblical premise of the concept of “gay” identity as “innate and immutable”. That concept is from the so-called “Queer Theory”

 Catholic Monitor

"I Personally have No Doubt that Obama did in fact Orchestrate the Vatican [Pope Benedict] Coup, and... Obama/Francis Partnership"

Attorney and World Net Daily (WND) contributor Scott Lively believes "that Obama did in fact orchestrate the Vatican [Pope Benedict XVI] coup, and... the Obama/Francis partnership behind the United Nation":

Jesuit Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Argentina became Pope Francis in March of 2013. I published my first article about Pope Francis and the LGBT agenda on August 1, 2013 when he was in the news for appearing to legitimize the concept of a “gay” identity as innate and unchangeable.  That concept is the false, anti-biblical premise of so-called “Queer Theory” (their term, not mine), a pseudo-scientific invention of “gay” political strategists, which underlies the entire LGBT political agenda. Francis infamously said in a media interview “If a person is gay and seeks the Lord and has good will, who am I to judge that person?”.  

I actually defended him against the charge that this statement represented an endorsement of homosexual conduct, and gave him the benefit of the doubt that he had merely been duped into adopting politically correct terminology and reasoning because it was even then so ubiquitous in the societies of the world through the aggressive global promotion of all things LGBT by the Obama administration. Obama had tasked all US government agencies with pushing the “gay” agenda as a global priority in 2011

As time went on, it became more and more obvious that Francis had not been duped into contradicting the Bible, but was intentionally using his authority to slowly and incrementally advance the LGBT agenda in Roman Catholicism, which has arguably been the most doctrinally faithful denomination on the sanctity of marriage in all Christendom, despite a very powerful network of homosexual men who had infiltrated the Catholic clergy since the 1960s and reportedly gained control over many of its seminaries.  

The misleadingly labeled “pedophile priest” scandal was evidence of this phenomenon which should have been called the “pederast priest” scandal to highlight the homosexual orientation of the abusers, who overwhelmingly targeted young teen boys in puberty, not prepubescent children of both sexes. (That false labeling by the leftist media was not accidental!). Importantly, this adult/teen pederast phenomenon is the same one seen in the secular world in such notorious cases as the Terry Bean scandal, the Ed Murray scandal , and the Sam Adams scandal, and many others. These are not outliers in “gay” culture. Indeed, Terry Bean was the founder of the world’s largest and most powerful homosexual organization, the Human Rights Campaign. AND he was one of Barack Obama’s top “money bundlers.”     

In February, 2017, a group of Catholic lay leaders sent a letter to President Trump detailing evidence that Obama, Soros and the Clintons had “used the United States’ diplomatic machinery, political muscle, and financial power to coerce, bribe and blackmail ‘regime change’ in the Roman Catholic Church in order to replace the conservative Benedict with the current Pope Francis – who has since become an unlikely mouthpiece for the international left, stunning Catholics around the world.” They cited then-recently released Wikileaks emails by top Obama advisor and Clinton agent John Podesta from 2011 outlining plans for a “Catholic spring” comparable to the “Arab spring” regime change coups then being orchestrated by the US in the Middle East.  

In their letter to President Trump, the group of Catholics leaders write: “Approximately a year after this e-mail discussion, which was never intended to be made public, we find that Pope Benedict XVI abdicated under highly unusual circumstances and was replaced by a pope whose apparent mission is to provide a spiritual component to the radical ideological agenda of the international left. The Pontificate of Pope Francis has subsequently called into question its own legitimacy on a multitude of occasions.”   I would add that Benedict “resigned” shortly after a report he commissioned confirmed the existence of a powerful “gay mafia” in the Vatican. 

I personally have no doubt that Obama did in fact orchestrate the Vatican coup, and that this fact retroactively explains other world events I have written about. In early 2016, months before I became a Trump supporter, and a year before the Catholics’ coup allegation, I wrote a piece called Pope Francis and Global Government in which I detailed the Obama/Francis partnership behind the United Nation’s “2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development” – THE 17-point blueprint for creating the infrastructure for a global government that was kicked off at the UN assembly with a speech by Francis shortly after his face-to-face meeting with Obama in Washington.

Pray an Our Father now for the restoration of the Mass and the Church as well as for the Triumph of the Kingdom of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

Viganò: Francis and the Vatican´s gay lobby have de facto approved gay pseudo-marriage


en.news Francis and the Vatican's gay lobby have de facto approved gay pseudo-marriage, Archbishop Viganò wrote on October 22.

Now, he expects the Vatican Press Office to claim that Bergoglio was "misunderstood" and that Francis statement was taken from an old interview, "but the damage has been done.”

According to Viganò, there is a "clique of homosexuals in the [Vatican's] command post” who push Francis to defend "the vice which they share and practice.”

Francis who is “deliberately two-faced and Jesuitical” plays with equivocation and provocation, Viganò explains. Thus, he doesn't openly contradict Catholic doctrine but allows the bishops to do so in order to approve their views later.

The reason for this is to provoke the Catholic Cardinals to accuse him of heresy. Francis could use this as a pretext to expel them and to consolidate his power, Viganó explains.

He believes that Francis wants to reduce all religions into a lowest common denominator, expressed in "solidarity," "environmentalism" and "pacifism," to present himself as a "‘pontiff’ of a new religion." Then, Catholics will be ostracised by society and by Francis' new “church.”

Viganó stresses that Francis' recent inter-religious meeting coincided with the announcement that the 2020 Christmas Midnight Mass is cancelled.

According to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith Jorge Mario Bergoglio alias Francisco "is not in full communion with the Catholic Church."
Bergoglio instead of seeking the conversion of homosexuals confirms them in their rebellion against God and against their own nature. Bergoglio has formed an apostate, schismatic and heretical sect that defies Scripture, Tradition and the four marks of the Catholic Church.

This week, the Italian parliament passes a law making it a “hate crime” to criticise the homosex political agenda


en.news This week, the Italian parliament passes a law making it a “hate crime” to criticise the homosex political agenda.

Alessandro Zan, a post-Communist parliamentary and homosex activist after which the repression law is named, wrote on Twitter.com that Francis endorsement of homosex unions recognises the "rights" of militant homosexuals to "family life" and helps fight "hatred and discrimination.” The expression "hatred and discrimination" is a neo-communist codeword for criticism.

According to Tan's inflammatory rhetorics, it is the task of the [neo-communist] legislator to combat these "violent phenomena." Now, he wants also a repression law against, what he calls "homotransphobia.”

The Italian opposition leader Matteo Salvini already backed down, “I respect the words of the Holy Father."

The timing of Francis' gay scandal is also useful for him because it helps distracting from his financial chaos and from his betraying of the Chinese Catholics.

Prophecies of Our Lady of Good Success About Our Times

“The sacrament of Matrimony, which symbolizes the union of Christ with the Church, will be thoroughly attacked and profaned. Masonry, then reigning, will implement iniquitous laws aimed at extinguishing this sacrament. They will make it easy for all to live in sin, thus multiplying the birth of illegitimate children without the Church’s blessing….

The Vaticanist from the US conglomerate NCR, Joshua McElwee, stressed that the statement in Afineevsky's documentary "is not news" because he "Bergoglio" "has supported the civil union (for homosexuals) for years."

The Code of Canon Law defines heresy as “the obstinate denial or doubt, after baptismof a truth which must be believed by divine and catholic faith

Yes, it is true that the word "family" is an analogical word, because we speak of the "family" of the stars, the "families" of the trees, the "families" of the animals ... it is an analogical word. But the human family as an image of God, man and woman, is only one...

Vatican hosts award ceremony for gay director of film in which Francis endorsed gay civil unions

 Featured Image

Director Evgeny Afineevsky attends the red carpet of the movie 'Francesco' during the 15th Rome Film Festival on October 21, 2020 in Rome, Italy.

October 22, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) — Filmmaker Evgeny Afineevsky, whose new documentary Francesco on Pope Francis made headlines across the globe for the Holy Father’s comments on homosexuality and what appeared to be an endorsement of homosexual civil unions, was honored earlier today with an award in the Vatican gardens. Afineevsky is a homosexual himself.  

Afineevsky, who is gay, had expressed surprise after the premiere that the pope’s comments had created such a stir, saying Francis wasn’t trying to change doctrine but was merely expressing his belief gay people should enjoy the same rights as heterosexuals,” the Associated Press (AP) reported. 

It is not yet clear how and why Afineevsky and Pope Francis started collaborating in the production of the documentary. In 2009, the Russian-born filmmaker released his feature directorial debut “Oy Vey! My Son Is Gay!” The movie received numerous awards from organizations supporting homosexuality. 

A romantic comedy featuring a Jewish family who struggles coming to terms with their son’s non-Jewish and gay boyfriend,” IMDb summarized the storyline. “When the gay couple adopts a child and it makes headline news, their families come to defend them and realize how much they love them.” 

In the documentary released yesterday, Pope Francis said, “Homosexuals have a right to be a part of the family. They’re children of God and have a right to a family. Nobody should be thrown out, or be made miserable because of it.” 

As first reported by the Catholic News Agency (CNA), the Pope also said, “What we have to create is a civil union law. That way they are legally covered. I stood up for that.” 

Earlier today, Afineevsky received an award for his documentary in the Vatican gardens. The ceremony was attended by some Vatican officials. Generally, the award ceremony, which appears to be hosted by the Italian government, takes place in Venice. 

I’m so proud that finally ‘Francesco’ is on its way to the world to change hearts and minds,” the filmmaker said, CNA reported. “I’m happy that I can bring the voices of the Rohingya refugees, refugees from Syria, voices of victims of sexual abuse, voices from different points and from different corners of the world. Something that Pope Francis really cares [about] and something that is really deeply in my heart.” 

AP pointed to another element of confusion regarding the Pope’s comments on homosexuality, suggesting that he could have made those remarks during a 2019 interview with Mexican broadcaster Televisa. The interview “was never broadcast in its entirety.” 

Televisa has not confirmed that the comments were made during its interview, but the scene of the documentary is identical to the Televisa interview, including the yellow background, a chair in the corner and slightly off-center placement of the chain of Francis’ pectoral cross,” the article pointed out. 

The official 2019 Vatican News transcript of that interview, as well as the official Vatican edit, contains no such comment on the need for legal protections for civil unions. The official edit does include his comments on the need for gay people to feel they are part of a family, as he has said previously.” 

According to the article, “some version of the footage was apparently available in the Vatican archives, which were opened to filmmaker Evgeny Afineevsky.” 

However, Afineevsky, when pressed by reporters late Wednesday, said the pope made the comments to him directly, through a translator, but declined to say when,” AP added.
