The spirit of Judas
In my last post, I quoted from the highly-placed Masonic author who referred to himself as Nubius and who outlined the plans of Masonry for a Masonic Pope thoroughly imbued with the tenets of masonry. An individual named Tim left a comment at this Blog saying, "Excuse my ignorance, but I was led to believe that the Pope (all Popes) were chosen by the Holy Spirit. How does that fit with your post?"
Very easily, actually. As an article written by Dr. Warren H. Carroll explains:
"There have been perhaps 30 or 40 Antipopes in the 2000-year history of the papacy.
An antipope is a person claiming to be Pope who was not duly elected or proclaimed while a duly elected Pope was still in office.
To begin with, it is vital to understand that there is no power on earth which may depose a Pope. Any duly elected Pope remains therefore in office until he dies or resigns (as has happened just seven times). Anyone, therefore, who claims to be Pope while a duly elected Pope is living and has not resigned is, ipso facto, an Antipope.
Papal election procedures are governed by the prescription of the last Pope who provided for them (that is, any Pope can change them, but they remain in effect until they are changed by a duly elected Pope).
During the first thousand years of the history of the Papacy the electors were the clergy of Rome (priests and deacons); during the second thousand years we have had the College of Cardinals.
But each Pope, having unlimited sovereign power as head of the Church, can prescribe any method for the election of his successor(s) that he chooses. These methods must then be followed in the next election after the death of the Pope who prescribed it, and thereafter until they are changed. A Papal claimant not following these methods is also an Antipope.
Since Antipopes by definition base their claims on defiance of proper Church authority, all have been harmful to the Church, though a few have later reformed after giving up their claims." (See: http://www.ewtn.com/library/HOMELIBR/ANTIPOPE.TXT
Not everyone is convinced of the legitimacy of this Pope's reign. Writes one individual (in the comments section of my last Blog post):
"Upon Pope Benedict's resignation (by devious means on behalf of the Masons within the curia) the Keys were immediately given back to Saint Peter who is now under the command of God the Father. I have never seen a pope like this, ever. When Francis issued a sermon in May that Catholics and Atheists should meet on common ground 'doing good', the red flag was raised. He then cited the Gospel of Mark to reinforce his point. In this section of scripture John was telling Jesus that he and others had tried to stop a man in another town, who wasn't one of us, driving out a demon in Jesus' name. Jesus then said that John should not stop him because those who are not against Me must be for me. Jesus was not condoning Atheism, in fact, Pope Francis not only quoted scripture out of context but he twisted the truth of God's Holy word. We all need to pray for the pope and especially for The Church because it's under wicked attack from within. God bless you all."
The Third Secret of Fatima is largely believed to allude to a crisis of faith in the Church and to the manifestation of the Antichrist from within the Church. He intends to set up a false Christ and a false Church which will last until the crisis is overcome by the faithful flock [the Remnant]. The defeat of the Man of Sin will coincide with the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. We have this from St. Louis de Montfort.
Already in 1957, before the Second Vatican Council - which this writer fully embraces - not the so-called "spirit" of Vatican II but the actual documents, Sister Lucy confided to Father Fuentes that, "The Most Blessed Virgin told me that the devil is in the process of engaging in a decisive battle with the Virgin...and since he knows what offends God the most and what will gain him the greatest number of souls in a short time, he is doing everything to win souls consecrated to God, for in this manner he leaves the field of souls undefended, and thus he will take them more easily."
Writing to another priest, Sister Lucy says, "I see by your letter that you are concerned over the confusion of our times. It is sad indeed that so many persons should let themselves be dominated by the diabolical wave that is sweeping the world and that they should be blinded to the point of being incapable of perceiving error! Their chief fault is that they gave abandoned prayer; they have thus distanced themselves from God, and without God, everything fails them..."
Has ecclesiastical masonry infiltrated even the Vatican? I believe so. I believe that an individual who reaches the heights of the spiritual life will be seduced by Satan and will betray the Church like Judas seeking to pervert it from within. Our times are growing very dark. If you cannot perceive this, it is very likely that you cannot perceive it because you have abandoned the prayer life.
More to come...
