DEFCON Situation: Putin has ordered Russia’s strategic nuclear deterrent forces put on heightened alert, in response to “aggressive statements” from NATO. Rattling the nuclear saber as western countries send weapons to Ukraine and the EU targets the Russian Central Bank.

And I’ve just learned much to my chagrin that Zelensky is pro-abortion.
It appears that Ukraine can now join NATO as Putin has used the invasion to redraw the borders to his liking.

“We cannot pretend not to see these signs and continue as if nothing had happened, , dragging ourselves through inertia , paralyzed by fear of change. I have said it many times: today, to preserve the founding charism… It is a temptation. Let’s get this straight:
- Pope Francis, February 2, 2022
So, preserving the faith is a rigidity and rigidity is a perversion, therefore preserving the faith is a perversion. Got it.
What a very strange thing to say when it is precisely by means of the faith itself that we are saved and nothing else.

“I grew up in Catholic schools, and I honestly thought religion was just being a good person, doing good things. I don’t think the priests in my high school once explained what the gospel was. Not once.”

The details of Pope Francis’s recent meeting with the FSSP have been revealed and they are good news for those devoted to the Latin Mass.
On Friday, February 4, 2022, two members of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter, Fr. Benoît Paul-Joseph, Superior of the District of France, and Fr. Vincent Ribeton, Rector of St. Peter’s Seminary in Wigratzbad, were received in private audience by the Holy Father, Pope Francis, for nearly an hour.
During the very cordial meeting, they recalled the origins of the Fraternity in 1988, the Pope expressed that he was very impressed by the approach taken by its founders, their desire to remain faithful to the Roman Pontiff and their trust in the Church. He said that this gesture should be “preserved, protected and encouraged”.
In the course of the audience, the Pope made it clear that institutes such as the Fraternity of St. Peter are not affected by the general provisions of the Motu Proprio Traditionis Custodes, since the use of the ancient liturgical books was at the origin of their existence and is provided for in their constitutions.
The Holy Father subsequently sent a decree signed by him and dated February 11, the day the Fraternity was solemnly consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, confirming for the members of the Fraternity the right to use the liturgical books in force in 1962, namely: the Missal, the Ritual, the Pontifical and the Roman Breviary.
Grateful to the Holy Father, the members of the Fraternity of St. Peter are in thanksgiving for this confirmation of their mission. They invite all the faithful who feel close to them as a spiritual family to attend or join them in prayer at the Mass tomorrow, on the feast of the Chair of St. Peter, and to pray for the Supreme Pontiff.
The Holy Father Francis, grants to each and every member of the Society of Apostolic Life “Fraternity of Saint Peter”, founded on July 18, 1988 and declared of “Pontifical Right” by the Holy See, the faculty to celebrate the sacrifice of the Mass, and to carry out the sacraments and other sacred rites, as well as to fulfill the Divine Office, according to the typical editions of the liturgical books, namely the Missal, the Ritual, the Pontifical and the Roman Breviary, in force in the year 1962.
They may use this faculty in their own churches or oratories; otherwise it may only be used with the consent of the Ordinary of the place, except for the celebration of private Masses.
Without prejudice to what has been said above, the Holy Father suggests that, as far as possible, the provisions of the motu proprio Traditionis Custodes be taken into account as well.

Peter said to Jesus, ‘Behold, we have left all and followed you; what then shall we have?’”
In a recent television interview the Pope named what he believes to be the biggest crisis facing the Church. No, it’s not found in the open schism in German where the “Synodal Way” has just called for blessing same-sex unions. No, it’s not found in France where Muslims are taking over Catholic churches for their false worship, including an incursion into the second largest church in Paris. No, it’s not plummeting priestly vocations. And it’s certainly not Catholic Charities receiving money from the Biden administration to traffic illegal immigrants throughout the United States.
It’s none of these things.
According to the Holy Father the biggest problem afflicting the Church is Catholics. The problem is practicing Catholics who need an attitude adjustment. In the interview Francis described the problem this way: “The biggest crisis facing the Church today is a worldly spirituality, which causes clericalism and a rigidity, an ideological rigidity which is opposed to the Gospel.”
The Pope here can only be talking about those inside the Church, about Catholics. Which Catholics? And why is he dividing the Church by means of his comments along lines of ideology and a supposed “rigidity”? What could his purpose be in judging some persons negatively in this way.
The rigidity of vague accusations that are weaponized against the traditions of the Church are worldly and should have no place in the Church. That the Pope is the source of these is a great crisis for the Church.

Take a look at Patrick Coffin’s video here:
Consider the points he makes, which have been made by others before him and then, when you’re done doing that, re-examine all of Pope Francis’ behavior from the very beginning. Ask yourself, is it outside the realm of possibility that Francis’ mission includes eliminating the papacy itself?
At this point we cannot logically rule out anything.
You can take a look at his approach to doctrine as a way of answering the question. By his words and behavior he makes evident a consistent “allergic” reaction to established Catholic doctrine of any kind. He seems to revel or delight in causing confusion, which is the opposite behavior of those who are clear in their doctrine and teaching as a pope should be.
Recall that he eliminated the traditional title of “Vicar of Christ” in a recent edition of the Annuario Pontificio, the Vatican yearbook. These reasons and more add up to a rejection of the teaching office that is inherent to the papacy.
When you consider all of this it makes sense that a likely part of his mission as an agent of the Sankt Galen mafia is to eliminate the role of the pope. Or at least render it completely useless for the sake of doctrine and an office to which no one any longer looks for guidance in faith or morals.
Pope Francis has stated that he wants to remain in office long enough to ensure that the changes he makes are irreversible. Eliminating a possible future successor would be one way of accomplishing this.
