Who Wants to Ruin the Maltese Order?


"Long before the civilized countries came to establish international law, long before they formulated the dream of a common force to protect the healthy freedom of man, the independence of peoples, and a peaceful equilibrium in their mutual relations, The Order of St. John had gathered in a religious fraternity with military discipline, men from eight different 'languages' dedicated to the defense of the spiritual values ​​that form the common heritage and prerogative of Christianity: faith, justice, social order and peace ."
These words, which Pius XII. January 8, 1940, the Knights of the Saint John of Jerusalem of Rhodes and of Malta Sovereign Military Hospitaller Order taught, summarize the essentials of the oldest order of knights, the only currently existing sovereign state whose flag flew on the field of the Crusades. An order whose charism was always, that which is stated in its motto: Tuitio fidei et Obsequium pauperum (Testimony of Faith and Help the Needy).
Is it possible that a pope wants to destroy this institution, which is the glory of Christianity? Unfortunately, this impression comes from the recent events that affect the Maltese presidency.
On December 27, 2016 a first reconstruction of these events was carried out at this point. Edward Pentin deepened and enriched the scenario in an article in the National Catholic Register on 7 January 2017 with further details. The following is a summary: On the 6th of December, the Grand Master of the Order of Malta, Grand Chancellor Albrecht Freiherr von Boeselager,resigned in the presence of two witnesses, one of them the Cardinal Patron Raymond Leo Burke, and Fra Matthew Festing. It had come to light that Grand Chancellor Boeselager had abused his power during his term as the Grand Hospitaller of the Order by promoting the distribution of condoms and preventive means, even those with an abortive effect in Third World countries.
In spite of his promise of obedience (promises), which obliged him to the Grand Master, the Grand Chancellor refused to resign. Thereupon, proceedings against him were initiated which suspended him from the exercise of any offices. Boeselager appealed to the Vatican Secretariat for help, who appointed an investigation commission to collect "elements that were capable of informing the Holy See completely and swiftly of the matter which recently concerning the Grand Chancellor of the Order,  Mr. Albrecht Freiherr von Boeselager," as the Vatican Press Office said on 22 December.
On December 23, the Grand Master of the Order declared the decision of the State Secretariat "unacceptable" and reminded the Vatican that Boeselager's dismissal is an "internal administrative act in the direction of the Sovereign Order of Malta and therefore falls exclusively within its jurisdiction."  In a further statement of 10 January, the Grand Master reaffirmed his intention not to cooperate with the Vatican Investigation Commission, "also to protect his own sovereignty against initiatives that occur in a form which is objective (and therefore independent of the intentions, legally irrelevant) aim at challenging or at least restricting this sphere."
The Vatican initiative immediately gave the impression of a sensational gaffe . The legal order of the Order of Malta is defined by the 1997 reformed constitution. Article 3 of the Constitution states in paragraph 1:
"The Order is the subject of international law and exercises the functions connected with the rights of sovereignty."
These functions are: the executive, represented by the Grand Master, assisted by the Sovereign Council; The Legislative, represented by the General Chapter; The judiciary, represented by the magistral tribunals. The Maltese Vicar provides diplomatic passports and has offices in Rome where he officially receives the representatives of more than 100 states with whom he has equal diplomatic relations. The Order enjoys priveleged relations with the Holy See, but in complete independence. The Holy See appoints a Cardinal Patron and an Ambassador to the Order, according to the provisions of international law. As Professor Paolo Gambi noted, the Order, in spite of its religious nature, which is common to ecclesiastical orders, occupies a completely special position, "enjoying an almost unique autonomy in the Church framework and the influence of this state [religious] is limited to  members with perpetual vows" (La Soberana Orden de Malta militar en el orden juridico eclesial e internacional , Ius Canonicum , XLIV, no. 87 (2004), pp 197-231).
Article 4, paragraph 6 of the Constitution of the Sovereign of Malta, is clear:
"The religious character of the Order does not preclude the exercise of the rights of sovereignty granted to it, insofar as the Order is the subject of state recognized by international law."
The confirmation of this international law status, even against the Holy See, the Pontifical Yearbook , in which the Order is mentioned only once, not among the religious orders, but among embassies accredited by the Holy See. The 1997 Constitution has eliminated various ecclesiastical interventions that have existed before, including the approval of the Holy See to validate the vows.





Coat of arms of the Order of Malta

The responsibility of the Holy See on the religious life of the knights is limited to the members of the First Estate. These are the judges or professors who solemnly and forever take the three monastic vows. The members of the Second Class, the Knights and Ladies of obedience, take no vows, but are committed by the Promess of obedience and are therefore subject only to their superiors. Ex-Chancellor Albrecht von Boeselager is married and a father of five children, a layman and belongs to the Second Estate. He is not subordinate in any way to the Holy See. Apart from this, the Chevalier de Justice [Knight Judge] who (according to Art. 9, para. 1 of the Constitution) "Religious with all effects of Canon Law", are not obliged to live in community, which is an unicum representing the life of the Church. Fra Ludovico Chigi Albani della Rovere (1866-1951) was Prince and Grand Master of the Order from 1931-1951. After the death of his wife (1898), he gave solemn vows as a Judge, but still lived in the Palazzo Chigi, which until 1916 belonged to his family (at that time also home to the Austro-Hungarian Embassy and today is the seat of the Italian Prime Minister). There he led a life according to his status and rank.
Of course, the Church has the same right against the Maltese ordinance that it has against any sovereign state when it comes to problems that directly affect faith and morality. The Pope has the right and the duty to intervene in all political and social questions that have to do with the attainment of the highest goal of man, eternal life. When a state legitimates a natural sexual union, the pope has the duty to take a position and to challenge the grave violation of the Divine Law and Natural Law. When the Maltese ordinance promotes contraception and abortion, the Pope has the duty to raise his voice. Today, however, the opposite happens. The Church withdraws from its right of judgments on questions of morality which are of its own area and instead takes a position on political and administrative issues which are not part of its competence.
Christopher Lamb cited the Tablet of 5 January a letter from Cardinal Secretary of State Pietro Parolin, the went to Fra Matthew Festing on 21 December. In this, the Grand Master is informed that Pope Francis desires the rescission Boeselager's deposition.
"As I expressed to you in my previous letter of December 12, 2016, as far as the use and diffusion of methods and means contrary to the moral law, His Holiness has asked for a dialogue on the way in which possible problems are dealt with and can be solved. But he has never spoken of sending someone away!"
Let us summarize: for those who violate the law of God and natural law, there is dialogue and the outstretched hand. For those who, on the other hand, for those who defend the faith and Catholic morality, the truncheon of the political commissioner and the commission of inquiry is ready.
The group of knights around Albrecht von Boeselager is a secularized current in the Order, which would like to convert the Maltese order into a humanitarian NGO. On the other hand, the Order's current leadership is defined by fidelity to the religious roots of the Order. Perhaps that is their greatest sin, to which another is joined. In the course of more than 950 years of history, the Sovereign Order of Malta has never lost its aristocratic, chivalrous and sovereign form. This image represents the exact opposite of miserabilism and egalitarianism, represented by those who govern the Church today. The result is that clericalism is criticized, but in fact is practiced with devastating consequences. The massive interference of the State Secretariat in the name of Pope Francis provokes chaos and division in the interior of the Order.
In its long history, the Sovereign Maltese Knights has survived all vicissitudes. In the 250 years in Palestine, the 210 years on Rhodes, the 270 years on Malta, its mission seemed to have ended many times, and yet it rose again and again, even as the storm of the French Revolution and Napoleon swept across Europe. It is to be hoped that Grandmaster Fra Matthew Festing and the Sovereign Council, who stand by him, will be able to withstand decisively the strong pressure exerted on them in these days. Nobody could ever have doubted the love and affection of Grand-Master Ludovico Chigi Albani for the Pope, who, in his function as Marshal of the Holy Roman Church, took part in the election of three Popes. Nevertheless, he resisted every ecclesiastical attempt to interfere with the life of the Order. The Holy See had to recognize the sovereign nature of the Order of Malta "without interference by a secular or ecclesiastical authority," as Benedict XVI. remembered when he received the knight on the occasion of the 900th anniversary of the granting of the privilege Pie postulatio voluntatis  on 15 February 1113. With this solemn act, Pope Benedict emphasized, "Paschalis II placed the young Brotherhood of Jerusalem, named after St. John the Baptist, under the protection of the Church and made it sovereign."

Why More Priests Can't Stand Pope Bergoglio?

Edit: remember when Damian wanted to take Rorate to the wood shed when Pope Francis' unsuitability for the papacy was first published, clearly and accurately documented?
[Spectator] On 2 January, the Vatican published a letter from Pope Francis to the world’s bishops in which he reminded them that they must show ‘zero tolerance’ towards child abuse. The next day, the American Week magazine published an article that told the story of ‘Don Mercedes’ — Fr Mauro Inzoli, an Italian priest with a passion for expensive cars and underage boys.
In 2012, Pope Benedict stripped Inzoli of his priestly faculties, effectively defrocking him. In 2014, however, they were restored to him — by Pope Francis, who warned him to stay away from minors.
Then, finally, the Italian civil authorities caught up with this serial groper of teenagers in the confessional. Last summer Inzoli was sentenced to four years and nine months in jail for paedophile offences. The Vatican, under ‘zero-tolerance’ Francis, refused to supply evidence that prosecutors wanted.

Pentin: Pope Tasked Cardinal Burke to Root Out Masons in Order of Malta

Edit: here you go. Article by Deacon Donnelly.
[EWTN] It has emerged that during a meeting between Pope Francis and Cardinal Burke in November about the scandal of the Knights of Malta distributing condoms and oral contraceptives in Africa, the Holy Father instructed Cardinal Burke to "clean out" Freemasonry from the order. The Holy Father gave this order to Cardinal Burke in his role as patron of the Knights of Malta by papal appointment.
The Vatican journalist Edward Pentin revealed details of Pope Francis's concerns about the influence of the Freemasons on the Knights of Malta:

Hopes that the contraceptive scandal would be addressed came on Nov. 10, when Cardinal Burke was received in private audience by Pope Francis. During that meeting, the Register has learned, the Pope was “deeply disturbed” by what the cardinal told him about the contraceptive distribution. The Pope also made it clear to Cardinal Burke that he wanted Freemasonry “cleaned out” from the order, and he demanded appropriate action. The concern was followed up by a Dec. 1 letter to Cardinal Burke, in which the Register has learned that the Holy Father underlined the cardinal’s constitutional duty to promote the spiritual interests of the order and remove any affiliation with groups or practices that run contrary to the moral law.

https://www.ewtn.co.uk/news/europe/pope-ordered-card-burke-to-clean-out-freemasons-from-the-knights-of-malta


Bishop Athanasius Schneider, a collaborator with Cardinal Burke and an auxiliary bishop of Astana, Kazakhstan, have given a lecture on "Mary, conqueror of all heresies", in which he warned that Freemasonry is an "instrument of Satan". Bishop Schneider made this observation in the context of 2017 being the 300th anniversary of the foundation of Freemasonry with the establishment of the first Grand Lodge in London.
Bishop Schneider described the past 300 years of Freemasonry as turbulent and hidden, in pursuit of a revolutionary and subversive ambition. He described Freemasonry as a "tool of Satan" that has largely shied away from daylight since its foundation.
Bishop Schneider went on to recall St Maximilian Kolbe's recollections of the Freemasons' aggressive celebrations of their 200th anniversary in Rome during 1917, in the middle of the First World War. His Lordship related St Maximilian Kolbe's description of Freemasonry openly declaring war on the Catholic Church. The Freemason littered Rome with posters showing the Archangel Michael defeated on the ground trampled beneath a triumphant Lucifer. In their protests against the Catholic Church, the Freemasons also displayed the black flag of the heretic Giordano Bruno, a Dominican friar who promoted materialistic pantheism, a central belief of Freemasonry. (Bruno also denied fundamental doctrines of the Faith).

Pope Francis Celebrates Mass in the Sistine Chapel Ad Orientem

Celebration: In the Sistine Chapel, Pope Francis celebrates before the
Last Judgement versus Deum. The People's Altar Was Removed by Pope Benedict
(Rome) Pope Francis celebrated also in this year's Feast of the Baptism of the Lord versus Deum. The feast is traditionally celebrated in the Sistine Chapel, where the Pope each year offers the sacrament of baptism to some newborn children.
Pope Benedict XVI removed the mobile "people's altar" and celebrated at the high altar below the representation of the Last Judgment versus Deum. For his first Holy Mass as pope, which Francis celebrated with the Cardinal's collegium on the day after his election in the Sistine Chapel, the plywood altar was again set up, which was feared to be a backward step. However, this remained the only exception.
Since then, Pope Francis has been celebrating this year in the presence of God for the faithful. Thus, the argument, which has been widely held since the first liturgical form of 1965, that the "people's altar" would have to be celebrated toward the people, because it would otherwise be rude to "turn your back to the people". To be precise, the argument was stupid then just as it is now. The change of the direction of celebration away from God to the people was a result of Martin Luther's Reformation-Revolution and was premiered for the first time in 1536 in the recently converted Strasbourg Cathedral.
In 2016 Cardinal Robert Sarah, Prefect of the Roman Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, called to all priests worldwide to return to actual direction of celebration of the Church ad orientem or versus Deum . He firmly called upon them to make the appeal concrete and to do so from the First Day of Advent.
The Cardinal Prefect was publicly criticized by those circles close to the pope and "corrected" by the Vatican Press Office "no" liturgical changes were provided. Cardinal Sarah, who had been appointed by Pope Francis himself, has since been "left in the cold". He has been strongly isolated in his own Congregation, thus limiting his scope for action.

Another Europe: Sunday Mass Attendance Rises in Poland to 40 Percent

The Other Europe:  Polish Mass Attendance Climbs
(Warsaw) There is "another Europe". The latest figures from Poland make it clear. The number of visitors to Sunday Mass has risen to 40 percent in 2016.
According to the statistical institute of the Catholic Church in Poland, the proportion of visitors in the survey population increased from 39.1 percent in 2015 to 39.8 percent in 2016. The number of Communion recipients rose from 16.3 percent to 17 percent, as Pawel Rytel-Andrianik for Zenit reported.
Poland has one of the densest parish nets in the Catholic world. About seven percent of all parishes are run by religious orders. 92 percent of Poles profess the Catholic faith. The number of priests working in parishes is almost 21,000. More than 7,000 religious are also active in the parishes.
In 2015 369,000 baptisms and 270,000 First Communions were offered and 134,000 marriages were consecrated. The figures point to a healthy, positive demographic development.

Polish catholicity is characterized by a rich Marian tradition and diverse forms of popular piety. The rosary and liturgical functions, which are based on the Marian works of Fatima, play a particularly strong role.

Bishop Exorcist Says Medjugorje is Diabolical

Edit: anyone with a rudimentary catechism would know Medjugogoo is fake.

[UNAMsanctamcatholicam] We haven't heard much from Medjugorje lately - I was following the Ruini Commission for awhile, which was charged with investigated the alleged apparitions by the Holy Father and was supposed to come up with some sort of  definitive judgment. I still haven't heard anything from Cardinal Ruini, but this 2008 interview with Bishop Andrea Gemma, one of the Church's foremost exorcists, has recently come to light in which the bishop soundly condemns Medjugorje as a diabolical phenomenon.

Here's a background item on the Medjugorje case, a May 2008 interview with Bishop Andrea Gemma from Gianluca Barile's website Petrus. It was reported in the press at the time, and some quotations did appear, but I never came across the full text until recently. 

Medjugorje: the accusation of the bishop-exorcist Mons. Gemma: "The apparitions of the Madonna? Completely false: the seers lie under the inspiration of Satan to profit economically"

Silence in The Liturgy

Edit: we're not sure what's going on in a nave where there's a lot of idle chit chat before and after Mass, but it's probabaly not holy. The Sisters of St. Joseph Crandolet, even as they were declining in the seventies used to whack us and give us severe looks for talking before and after Mass. This is probabaly before Father Whackadoodle had instilled a sense of celebration and secular merriment in their minds. This article is long overdue:

[Liturgy Guy] I remember the general quiet and stillness associated with test taking back when I was in school. Everyone understood the necessity of maintaining silence in order to allow for each student to achieve his or her best possible results. Teachers for their part facilitated this by establishing an atmosphere conducive to learning through limiting noise and movement.
Schools of Prayer
What do you experience when you participate in the Holy Mass each Sunday? Do you enter into the sacred, thereby experiencing the same comparable stillness that you would expect to have in a classroom at school? Is noise and motion minimized so that concentration and silence can be maximized? Does your parish allow for the necessary environment that is conducive to deep prayer?
In his 2001 Apostolic Letter Novo Millennio Inuente Pope St. John Paul called for our christian communities to become “genuine schools of prayer”. He continued:
Learning this Trinitarian shape of Christian prayer and living it fully, above all in the liturgy, the summit and source of the Church’s life…is the secret of a truly vital Christianity, which has no reason to fear the future, because it returns continually to the sources and finds in them new life. (NMI, 32)

Vox Populi: "This Isn't a Crisis, but The Ruin of The Church"

(Brussels / Amsterdam) Since Advent, the Dutch and the Flemings have been praying the same "Our Father". The new prayer taught by Jesus Christ himself not only unifies the Dutch language, but also is being presented in controversial new formulations.
So far, two different versions of the "Our Father" were prayed in the two countries in which Dutch is spoken. If, for example, the Flemings were to say the "debts",  "guilt" was given in the Dutch.
Not against this unification, but against new developments, faithful Catholics are protesting in the Netherlands and Flanders. The Dutch newspaper Trouw described the changes in November 2016 as a "kleine liturgische revolutie" (small liturgical revolution). The Catholic lay initiative Vox Populi speaks of an "ideologically" motivated reformulation. With a petition, the initiative protested against the revision. The prayer "and lead us not into temptation" (lat. Temptationem ) has been translated with "bekoring" (temptation), while the new version "Beproeving" is means "testing, testing, visitation, test." In essence, it says, "and do not put us to the test."
Hugo Bos, chairman of the Dutch pro-life movement Stirezo Pro Life , sees the new Lord's Prayer "in line with the trend of the bishops,  to ignore sin and temptation to sin". This trend is a continuation of the Dutch Catechism 1965, which systematically eliminated any reference to the supernatural from the Church's teaching.
Vox Populi is convinced that this "initiative of the Belgian and Dutch bishops will lead to the confusion in the Church and, consequently, only increase the crisis of faith." The Catechism of the Catholic Church says clearly that the last sentence of the "Our Father" is an appeal to Christ, to help resist the temptation to sin and evil. It was therefore not a question of man's request to God to save him from pain and material suffering.
"The current situation is no longer a crisis, but the ruin of the Catholic Church in the Netherlands. 600-700 churches are to be closed down by the end of 2018," said Vox Populi .
Cardinal Willem Jacobus Eijk, Archbishop of Utrecht, recently recalled that before the Second Vatican Council, 90 per cent of the Dutch Catholics visited Holy Mass on Sunday. Today, it is only six percent.

300 Years of Freemasonry in 2017 -- Bishop Schneider: Freemasonry is "the Work of Satan"

(Rome) On 11 December, Auxiliary Bishop Athanasius Schneider, one of the most remarkable and outstanding bishops of the Catholic Church, held a lecture before in Seville, Spain. The theme was "Mary, vencedora de todas las hierjias" (Maria, Conqueror of All Heresies).

Blessed Pope Pius IX. had pronounced the Blessed Mother in his bull Singulari quadam December 9 in 1854 as "Virgo Beatissima, quae interemit ac perdidit universas haeresas" which means: "Mary, Conquerer and Destroyer of All Heresies". On the day after the proclamation of the dogma of the Immaculate Conception, Pius IX. gathered all cardinals and bishops who had come for the occasion to Rome again to comply with its specific task to "strengthen brothers in the faith," and presented them with Singulari quadam an authentic interpretation of the announced Marie dogma.
In his lecture, Bishop Schneider spoke of Freemasonry and its work, with a view to their anniversary. In 2017, several commemorations will be held. In the German-speaking world, with a certain amount of media, the commemoration of "500 years of the Reformation" by Martin Luther will take place. Thus, other events of historical importance are covered. These include two major events that took place 100 years ago. There is the Bolshevik October Revolution in Russia with the spread of Communism, which still dominates one-fifth of the world's population. And, on the other hand, the recent Marian apparition in Fatima, Portugal, where Maria a few days before the outbreak of the October revolution had already directed the view to Russia.
In 2017, however, an event of the utmost importance is still on the agenda. 300 years ago, in 1717, the first Grand Lodge was established in London, to which the entire Freemasonry refers. 2017 is, in fact, a "memorable" year.
Bishop Schneider is known above all for his promotion of the restoration of the sacredness in the Holy Liturgy and the reverence for the Most Holy Eucharist. On the subject of Communion he published several works. In this, he advocates the worthy reception of Communion and recommends receiving Communion on the tongue while kneeling, as Pope Benedict XVI. required in papal masses. Because of the special attention to Holy Communion, Bishop Schneider is one of the decisive defenders of  marriage and penance. To Synod of Bishops on the Family, he published a publication with 100 questions and answers with which the aspirations of a new doctrine were rejected, allowing the divorced and remarried to the sacraments.
In Seville, Bishop Schneider spoke of the secret society of Freemasonry, which in 2017 looked back on a 300-year long, turbulent and obscure existence, as well as its revolutionary as well as subversive ambition. Bishop Schneider described Freemasonry as a "tool of Satan", since daylight has largely shied away from it.
The Auxiliary Bishop of Astana recalled in his remarks to St. Maximilian Kolbe and his portrayals of the aggressive appearance of Freemasons in Rome during the First World War. In 1917, in the middle of the war, the Freemasons in Rome celebrated their 200th anniversary. The Freemasons had openly declared war on the Church. They had littered Rome with posters, and with the black flag of the Giordano Bruno which were demonstratively moving up to the Vatican. On the posters and the flags "was a representation of Archangel Michael, who was defeated before the triumphant Lucifer laying on the ground", according to Bishop Schneider.
Because of these experiences the young Maximilian Kolbe, who was then at the Gregoriana, studying theology,  created the Militia Immaculatae (Knighthood of the Immaculate), to "counter the actions of Lucifer".
The goal of Freemasonry is, according to Bishop Schneider, "to eliminate the entire doctrine of God, especially Catholic doctrine." To achieve this goal, Freemasonry has been using "numerous societies". "They want the dissolution of morality" for a very specific reason. They are convinced of the principle that "catholicity, without corrupting morality, can not be defeated with logical arguments." Masonic action on this principle is currently "very topical", according to the auxiliary bishop of Kazakhstan.
"Undoubtedly, however, the virgin Mary, who has been immaculately conceived, will in the end, crush the greatest heresy of all time: the heresy of the Antichrist," said the auxiliary bishop.
Bishop Athanasius Schneider is the son of Black Sea Germans. His family had been deported by Stalin to Siberia and Central Asia with more than a million Russian Germans, so Schneider was born in Kyrgyz Tokmok in 1961. In 1973 the family was able to resettle in the Federal Republic of Germany, where he grew up and in 1982 entered the Order of Canons Regular of the Holy Cross. This order already belonged to Saint Anthony of Padua, before he joined the Order of Saint Francis of Assisi. Since 2001, Schneider has been a pastor in Kazakhstan. In 2006 Pope Benedict XVI appointed him as the titular bishop. As such he was first auxiliary bishop of the Karaganda diocese. Since 2011 he is auxiliary bishop of the Archbishopric of Astana.

One of Pope's Intimates Reveals an Evil Mind

January 3, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Just over a year ago, a reader had a revealing and candid conversation with a Vatican official close to Pope Francis’ inner circle.
They were traveling on the same flight to Rome; the official was on his way back from the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia, just before the 2015 Ordinary Synod on the Family.
What he said was remarkable for its rejection of orthodoxy and contempt for the core teachings of the Catholic faith.

Migrants Take Social Workers Hostage in Italy

3 January 2017

Cona: After the margins in an asylum seeker shelter, the police had to free 25 employees Photo: picture alliance / ROPI

VENICE. Asylum seekers were detained after the death of an African on Monday when they held about 25 employees of an Italian reception center hostage for several hours. They blamed the death of the woman on the requested emergency physician as well as for the bad conditions in their accommodation.

After the twenty-five-year-old from the ivory coast was found dead in the shower, the inhabitants of the former barracks in the northern Italian city of Cona turned off the electricity and lit wooden pallets, reports Corriere della Sera. They accused the emergency doctor of having come too late. The employees of the Ecofficina cooperative team were then forced into their offices and were only released after midnight by the police.

Lega Nord denounced the government's inactivity

The Lega-North politician and deputy chairman of the Europe of Nations and Freedom Group in the EU Parliament, Matteo Salvini, lamented the inaction of the Italian government in a contribution to Facebook. In Bulgaria, in a similar case, the  foreigners concerned were expelled while "nothing like this will happen to this scum in Italy". Salvini announced that he would enact "mass expulsions" and close down detention centers as well as end naval operations in the Mediterranean.

Italy has received over 180,000 immigrants last year, most of them from Nigeria, Eritrea, Guinea, the Ivory Coast or Gambia. In the 3,000-inhabitant municipality of Cona, about 1,400 asylum seekers are currently being accommodated. The rescue workers rejected the allegations that they had arrived late. The prosecutor of Venice has ordered an autopsy of the Ivorian. (Vi)

Two Recidivist Migrants Released After New Year's Rioting

BERLIN. Two Berlin rioters, who were supposed to have torched a car on New Years in Berlin-Neukölln, are free again. The responsible judge sees no reason to issue arrest warrant, but is to assess further, confirmed the General State Prosecutor.

The 19 and 22-year-old men with a migration background allegedly belong to a group that rolled a Chevrolet to the crossroads of Emser Strasse, Hermannstraße at around 1:30 am, bouncing on it,    smashing the windows, destroying the doors and throwing fireworks into the interior. The 19-year-old chief suspect is a repeat offender many times over, according to police.

The vehicle burned completely. It was reported as stolen in October 2016, the number plate actually belongs to a different BMW  reported as stolen back in May 2015. Possible witnesses are asked to report to the Berlin police (Kriminalkommissariat Dir 5 K 32: 030/4664 - 573200). (Gb)

A Child Abuse Scandal is Coming for Pope Francis?

Edit: we've pointed out that contrary to what this Pope has said, that there are sexual abuse cases that arose during his tenure in Buenos Aires.  We've also pointed out that Cardinal Marx, who lives luxuriously in Rome, has appointed a priest convicted of having thousands of child porn images on his computer tomparish work. Let's take a moment to reflect on the obvious double standard. Now Francis and his clique are trying to invalidate the CDF's hard line against these deviants.

[The Week]The Catholic Church has long been plagued by sickening scandals involving priests abusing children. And there is reportedly another scandal coming — this one of the pope's own making.

Two people with direct ties to the Vatican tell me that Pope Francis, following the advice of his clubby group of allies in the curia, is pressing to undo the reforms that were instituted by his predecessors John Paul II and Benedict XVI in handling the cases of abuser priests. Francis is pushing ahead with this plan even though the curial officials and cardinals who favor it have already brought more scandal to his papacy by urging him toward lenient treatment of abusers.

In 2001, the Vatican instituted a massive reform in how it handled the cases of priests who abused children. The power to deal with these cases was taken away from the Congregation of the Clergy and the Roman Rota (the Vatican's Court), and placed in the office of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF). Subsequently, the volume and speed with which the Catholic Church.

Papal Commission Ecclesia Dei: Private Masses Allowed in Immemorial Rite Without Permission

(Rome) On 18 October 2016 one of the faithful presented ECCLESIA DEI with a Dubium (doubt). The question was whether a priest with a regular permission could celebrate a private Mass in the extraordinary form of the Roman Rite according to the Motu proprio Summorum Pontificum (Articles 2 and 5.4) in a validly built private chapel without further permission.

On 3 November, the Pontifical Commission gave its affirmative Responsum (answer). The Commission confirmed that such an event was permitted. At the same time, the Commission reaffirmed that the faithful can of course participate in a private Mass. Anyone who wishes to participate and spontaneously participate in the celebration of the  Mass has the right to do so within the meaning of Article 4 of Summorum Pontificum. The number of participants is irrelevant. The priest can also exclude believers from attending.

The reply of the Pontifical Commission, Ecclesia Dei, also states that a private Mass in a private chapel does not require any authorization, for example, by the local priest or local bishop.

In the liturgical form of Pope Paul VI., the term Missa sine populo (Mass without people)
is used for private Mass, but it is confusing, as the term "private Mass" was an occasion for misunderstandings. The term private Mass does not mean a "private" Mass (a priest or a group), excluding third parties. It simply means the difference from a "community Mass" in the sense of Church law, ie the mass of a parish or a convent.

Inquiry to the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei

Private Masses may not be publicly announced by the priest. As the Church jurist Gero Weishaupt explained on Introibo.net, however, the priest can provide information to the faithful on request. The faithful, on the other hand, can also publicly call for a private Mass and invite people to participate.

Therefore, the phrase "private Mass" does not refer to the number of participants. Thousands of faithful could attend a private Mass. The phrase "Missa sine populo" (which has replaced the term "private Mass" in the Novus Ordo), on the contrary, means that the priest is permitted to say Mass even if no faithful are present.

Prior to the form of Paul VI. in 1969, a priest required a papal indult to celebrate a Holy Mass without without an altar server. Holy Mass is always an expression of ecclesial communion and of the benefit of the entire Church, which is why at least an altar server or the faithful had to be present.  

There was no "solitary" mass in Church history. A celebration without a ministrant was "not inadmissible", only in emergencies, in order to be able to offer the last rites to a dying man. It is only since 1970 that the Church has regularly allowed a priest to celebrate alone.

New York Times Horrified That Steve Bannon is a Militant Catholic

“Catholicism is necessarily an adversary faith and culture in an America where a triumphant secularism has captured the heights, from Hollywood to the media, the arts and the academy, and relishes nothing more than insults to and blasphemous mockery of the Church of Rome.” ~Pat Buchanan

 Edit: the fake news site New York Times looks in horror at what it's weasels have uncovered. This, and they rush to cite talking heads in fake Catholic institutions to give what they insist is a more accurate view of what the Catholic Church teaches. They use Michael Voris and his Church Militant as a negative example. There is nothing particularly controversial about what Church Militant or Steve Bannon are proposing according to the Times, but one could see that it might spell an end to the oppressive regime of secularism and deviance if allowed to take shape and come to fruition in the renewal of the Social Reign of Christ the King.

[New York Times] A week after Stephen K. Bannon helped engineer the populist revolt that led to Donald J. Trump’s election, Buzzfeed unearthed a recording of him speaking to a Vatican conference of conservative Catholics in 2014.

 In his presentation, Mr. Bannon, then the head of the hard-right website Breitbart News and now Mr. Trump’s chief strategist, called on the “church militant” to fight a global war against a “new barbarity” of “Islamic fascism” and international financial elites, with 2,500 years of Western civilization at risk.

 While most listeners probably overlooked the term “church militant,” knowledgeable Catholics would have recognized it as a concept deeply embedded in the church’s teaching. Moreover, they would have noticed that Mr. Bannon had taken the term out of context, invoking it in a call for cultural and military conflict rather than for spiritual warfare, particularly within one’s soul, its longstanding connotation.

Trump isn't racist.

All of EF's readers should read the following article written by a secular Jew who does not support President-elect Trump:

Any news outlet that calls Trump a "racist" is now, by definition, spewing fake news. Disown them.

Feast of St. Thomas Becket: A Possible Response to Non-Response to the Dubia

Edit: could this scene be enacted someplace near Rome against no less a figure than the Pope himself? Imagine the journalists showing up for it, tens of thousands of the laity thronging a Church somewhere near Rome...

Germany: Foreigner Brutally Attacks Old Married Couple

Edit: who else is going to roam your streets and attack your country's grandmothers? This is the welcome culture.

[Focus] A couple in Hanau have been victims of a brutal assault. In the night on Sunday, the couple came out of the jazz cellar and went towards the castle to their car. Shortly before the Kinzigbrücke it was about 12:50 when they were approached from behind the attacker.

The stranger spoke or stammered  in a foreign language, the police reported. When he was on the same level with the couple, the perpetrator, asked the woman in broken German. When the 65-year-old confirmed this, the man hit her in the face without warning.

Her husband intervened - and was now attacked. The attacker struck him several times about his head. When he lay on the ground, the perpetrator stomped him repeatedly.
'
The 63-year-old had to be treated at the hospital. The police are now searching for the brutal attacker: he is about 25 years old and about 1.90 meters tall. The perpetrator had black curly hair, dark eyes and a three-day beard. He was slim and clothed with a black jacket, light gray jogging pants, and white sneakers. The police asked witnesses, who were also on their way to the beginning of Sunday, to report under the number 06181 100-611.O

Spiegel: Now Even Pope Supporters Are Distancing Themselves

"Spiegel" is criticizing Francis: "The Bergoglio, which they elected in 2013, many do not  recognize again in the year 2016" - Cardinal Brandmüller: remarried divorced "were very casually handled". [Its an idiomatic reference to sausage.]

Rome (kath.net) "Francis is increasingly lonely, weakened by resistance in the curia and the loss of courage to change in undermining the foundation." The "Spiegel" in a Christmas article describes the appearance of Pope Francis critically. "Bergoglio, whom they elected in 2013, they do not recognize many in the Francis of 2016", the magazine speaks to a confidant of the Pope. "Spiegel" - Rome correspondent, Walter Mayr then declares that even pope-followers are now distancing themselves. According to the magazine, the past Holy Year in Rome also fell far short of expectations, the conversion of the curia is only progressing slowly.  Of individual offices it is said there is, "pure chaos". According to the magazine, the Pope's unbroken obedience is critical in the Vatican, especially because he has recently charged the media and their audience with  a "tendency to coprophagia" which means eating excrement. This has even frightened away followers of Francis.

According to the "Spiegel," Francis did not have much time to change, because the maximum time he had prescribed himself will soon have expired. To his most intimate circle, Francis himself had already declared himself self-critically: "It's not excluded that I will enter as the one who will split the Catholic Church."

Cardinal Brandmüller also speaks to the "Spiegel". In the theme of "remarried divorced people", the careless approach of the letter is criticized for the fact that the Pope and Cardinal Kasper tended to weaken the central commandments of the Catholic faith and the interpretation of the "The Holy Scriptures," according to Brandmüller, are not a self-service shop: According to the apostle Paul, we are administrators of the Holy Spirit of the mysteries of God, but not the persons who
have the right  of disposal. "

The Pope and the Order of Malta -- Here Comes Another Commissar

by Roberto de Mattei

Has the Pope appointed an external commissioner to the Order of Malta? Pope Francis undeniably likes the strategy of appointing external commissioners as he has already adopted this draconian measure against two religious communities considered too “traditional”: the Franciscans of the Immaculate and the religious of the Incarnate Word.  Further, it is not by chance that the announcement of a commission to “gather suitable elements to inform the Holy See thoroughly and swiftly with regard to the matter which has recently involved the Grand Chancellor of the Order of Malta, Mr. Albrecht Freiherr von Boeselager”, was given by the Vatican Press Office on December 22nd, precisely while Pope Bergoglio was transforming his traditional Christmas greetings to the Curia into a bitter chiding against those who are resistant to his project of radical change in the Church, with implicit reference to Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke, Patron of the Order of Malta. However, in this case, the appointing of an external commissioner is not at all possible. -

Update in Switzerland: Attacker Still at Large?

Edit:  several people were stabbed along the way to Mass, which is a strong indication, including alleged eyewitness accounts that the attacker was Muslim.  There is no confirmation yet as to any religious motivation for the attack.

[Gates of Vienna] More information is trickling in on the stabbing of people on their way to church on Christmas Day in the Valais canton of Switzerland. (See the previous reports from yesterday and earlier today.)

The original assertion that the perpetrator was a Muslim cannot be confirmed, but it has not yet been definitively ruled out. The latest reports say that the dead man may not in fact be the one who carried out the stabbings, and thus the perpetrator may still be at large.

I still don’t know where the original source (Dreuz.info) obtained the information that the attacker or attackers were alleged to be Muslim.

Many thanks to Ava Lon for translating this article from the French-language Catholic news portal Cath.ch:

Valais: One death and three assaults on the route to the hermitage at Longeborgne

by Raphaël Zbinden December 26, 2016

On December 25, 2016, several people were stabbed on the way to the hermitage of Longeborgne in Valais. One person was found dead. This death is probably related to the attacks.

A heavy police deployment was set up in Bramois on the morning of December 25, in the Borgne gorges, reports the Valais daily Le Nouvelliste. Three people were injured. A dead body was found in the bed of the Borgne in the afternoon. The attacks took place as the faithful went to Christmas Mass.
