Daniel, 12: 1. “But at that time Michael will rise up, the great leader, who stands up for the sons of your people. And a time will come, such as has not been from the time that nations began, even until that time. And, at that time, your people will be saved, all who will be found written in the book.
St. Thomas says of St. Michael: “Michael is the breath of the Redeemer’s spirit who will, at the end of the World, combat and destroy antichrist, as he did Lucifer in the beginning”.
A PRIEST'S PRAYER: For the End of the Francis "Pontificate"
By: Father Athanasius
Many of you may be familiar with the musical, Fiddler on the Roof, about life in a small Jewish community of a pre-revolutionary Russian village. One by one the Jewish father of five daughters watches painfully as the religious and cultural traditions of the village collapse around him. In the opening scene of the musical, the rabbi’s son asks, “Is there a proper blessing for the czar?” The rabbi responds: “A blessing for the czar? Of course! May God bless and keep the czar . . . far away from us!”
Like the little Jewish village of the musical, with a fiddler on the roof, the modernist institutional Catholic Church has its own fiddler, though he sits on a chair and not on a roof. His name is Francis and like Nero, who is said to have fiddled while Rome burned, so too, this fiend fiddles while the Church burns. It is also suspected that Nero himself set the destructive fires, which is certainly the case with Francis of Rome.
We suggest that it is legitimate to pray for the removal of Francis of Rome from the Chair of Saint Peter. It seems to us that there are three principal ways in which such a prayer might be answered, taking into proper account divine grace and human will.
Francis is a spiritual and religious arsonist, who has now set so many destructive fires in the institutional Church that even the fallen world is taking notice and commenting upon the dismal state of Catholicism.
What we are advocating is a prayer for Francis of Rome, with the hope of resolving this matter. Now we know that there are countless prayers being offered for the conversion of Francis and for his eternal soul, and we urge that these continue. But is there another prayer that may ethically be offered?
We suggest that it is legitimate to pray for the removal of Francis of Rome from the Chair of Saint Peter, along the lines of the Rabbi’s prayer to keep the czar far away. It seems to us that there are three principal ways in which such a prayer might be answered, taking into proper account divine grace and human will.
Is the removal of Francis by the discernment of the Cardinals probable? No, this is highly unlikely. With rare exception, the Cardinals have shown themselves to be feckless cowards or sycophantic loyalists.
The first manner in which Francis could be removed would be for Cardinals of the Church to convene and discern that for one reason or another, Francis is not validly a pope. Reasons abound for which the papacy of Francis might be found to be invalid: the matter of the validity of the resignation of Pope Benedict; the possibility that there were violations of the rules of the conclave that elected Bergoglio; the possibility that Francis himself has forfeited the office of pope through idolatry or heresy.
Is the removal of Francis by the discernment of the Cardinals probable? No, this is highly unlikely. With rare exception, the Cardinals have shown themselves to be feckless cowards or sycophantic loyalists. In place of cardinal red that they wear for martyrdom, they should rather be air brushed in cowardly yellow.
The second manner in which our prayer could be answered would be by Francis removing himself from the Chair, due to his conversion to the truth, for which so many of the faithful and clergy are praying. But as with the first possibility, this too is highly unlikely, for it would require two things to happen: Francis would need to be offered the grace of repentance by God and he would need to accept this divine grace.
As the great Doctor of Morality Saint Alphonsus Liguori wrote, once someone has forfeited the grace of baptism by mortal sin, God is not obliged to offer the grace of repentance to that person, without which one is not able to repent of sin and seek forgiveness. As we know from experience, God often does offer this grace for those who fall into mortal sin, but when the sin becomes habitual and destructive, the soul becomes hardened and even the offer of grace which is unmerited may be scorned by the sinner.
Our prayer for the removal of Francis could be realized by his death, not at the hands of men but by the hand of God. There is an historical papal precedent for this ultimate solution to a problem pope.
The third manner in which our prayer for the removal of Francis could be realized is by his death, not at the hands of men but by the hand of God. There is an historical papal precedent for this ultimate solution to a problem pope. In the sixteenth century, in the face of a plethora of unauthorized translations of the Bible emerging from the pens of Protestants, Pope Sixtus V assembled a commission of theologians and biblicists to provide a new Latin translation of the Sacred Scriptures. Dissatisfied with their drafts, the Pope decided to do a translation himself; furthermore, he was prepared to declare his translation inerrant.
Not even the Vulgate version of the great Saint Jerome, which had served as the official version of the Church for a thousand years, had ever been considered inerrant, that is, free from all error. Only the original writings of the Sacred Authors, penned under the direct inspiration of God, are truly inerrant.
Despite the pleading of cardinals, theologians, biblicists and even a saint, Pope Sixtus V was determined to promulgate his error ridden version of the Bible, with a papal bull declaring it to be inerrant. Or so he planned. But before he could carry this out as an Apostolic Act, which would have been contrary to the indefectibility of the Church and the infallibility of his office, Sixtus took to his bed and died in his sleep.
I offer this prayer to Saint Michael, with a few modifications, for your consideration:
Saint Michael the Archangel,
defend us in battle.
Be our protection against the wickedness and snares of Francis (Bergoglio).
May God remove him, we humbly pray,
and do thou,
O Prince of the heavenly hosts,
by the power of God,
cast from the Church Francis (Bergoglio),
and all the other Modernists,
who have infiltrated the Church
seeking the ruin of souls. Amen

After a first and second correction, you must shun the heretic, have nothing more to do with him, knowing that such a person is perverted and sinful; he is self-condemned ( Cf. Tit., 3, 10-11)
St Thomas Aquinas: In heretics, two aspects must be considered: one, on their part; another, on the part of the Church.ReplyDelete
On their part, there is in fact sin for which they deserved not only the separation of the Church by excommunication, but also the exclusion of the world with death.
King David appealed to God as Judge asking him to free him from his enemies after having prayed for them and seeing that instead of paying him well they paid him bad and they had stubbornly insisted on his malice then he asks God for the extermination of the evil ones.
Psalm 109:8 May his days be few; may another seize his goods!
St Thomas Aquinas: On the contrary, The Apostle says (Titus 3:10,11): “A man that is a heretic, after the first and second admonition, avoid: knowing that he, that is such an one, is subverted.”ReplyDelete
I answer that, With regard to heretics two points must be observed: one, on their own side; the other, on the side of the Church. On their own side there is the sin, whereby they deserve not only to be separated from the Church by excommunication, but also to be severed from the world by death. For it is a much graver matter to corrupt the faith which quickens the soul, than to forge money, which supports temporal life. Wherefore if forgers of money and other evil-doers are forthwith condemned to death by the secular authority, much more reason is there for heretics, as soon as they are convicted of heresy, to be not only excommunicated but even put to death.
On the part of the Church, however, there is mercy which looks to the conversion of the wanderer, wherefore she condemns not at once, but “after the first and second admonition,” as the Apostle directs: after that, if he is yet stubborn, the Church no longer hoping for his conversion, looks to the salvation of others, by excommunicating him and separating him from the Church, and furthermore delivers him to the secular tribunal to be exterminated thereby from the world by death. For Jerome commenting on Gal. 5:9, “A little leaven,” says: “Cut off the decayed flesh, expel the mangy sheep from the fold, lest the whole house, the whole paste, the whole body, the whole flock, burn, perish, rot, die. Arius was but one spark in Alexandria, but as that spark was not at once put out, the whole earth was laid waste by its flame.”
