To be clear, the scandal that pervades the Catholic Church isn't pedophilia, it's homosexuality- a part of a strategy implemented by Josef Stalin to destroy the church from within. This is not to say that pedophilia doesn't exist in the church, but statistically the incidences of pedophilia (1.25%) is less than in the overall population (2.15%) and Protestant clergy (also 2.15%). We also have to look at the term pedophilia- which is sex with someone between the age of birth and the age of consent. The vast number of victims of "pedophile priests" were/are from puberty to 18... the highest incidence in fact is among seminarians who are coerced into homosexual relationships. I'll try to put this into an historical context...
Pope Pius V (1566-1572) wrote an encyclical condemning homosexuality among Catholic clergy. He advocated not only stripping them of their authority and excommunicating them, but then turning them over to civil authorities to be prosecuted criminally. In Catholic doctrine homosexuality is a heresy. Similarly, Pope Pius X (1903- 1915) viewed homosexuality to be a manifestation of modernity, which he considered a synthesis of all heresies. After his death in 1915 modernity began to creep into the Church culminating with Vatican II (1968)- the protestantization of the Church. However, the homosexual infiltration began much earlier in the 1920's.
A former Communist named Bella Dodd wrote School of Darkness in 1954 where she disclosed the Communist plan to destroy the Catholic Church by infiltrating it with homosexuals and Freemasons- this part of a plan fomented by Josef Stalin. She testified that by 1930, 1000 Communist homosexual priests had been placed into strategic places in the Church, particularly in the seminaries. Another Communist infiltrator known only as AA 1025 was killed in an auto accident but was survived by his briefcase whose documents disclosed...
"In the Mass, the words ‘Real Presence’ and ‘Transubstantiation’ must be deleted. We shall speak of ‘Meal’ and ‘Eucharist’ instead. We shall destroy the Offertory and play down the Consecration and, at the same time, we shall stress the part played by the people. In the Mass, as it is today, the priest turns his back to the people and fills a sacrificial function which is intolerable. He appears to offer his Mass to the great Crucifix hanging over the ornate altar. We shall pull down the Crucifix, substitute a table for the altar, and turn it around so that the priest may assume a presidential function. The priest will speak to the people much more than before. In this manner the Mass will gradually cease to be regarded as an act of adoration to God, and will become a gathering and an act of human brotherhood.”
This was to be done: “To weaken more the notion of ‘Real presence’ of Christ, all decorum will have to be set aside. No more costly embroidered vestments, no more music called sacred, especially no more Gregorian Chant, but a music in jazz style, no more sign of the Cross, no more genuflections, but only dignified stern attitudes. Moreover, the faithful will have to break themselves from the habit of kneeling, and this will be absolutely forbidden when receiving Communion…. Very soon, the Host will be laid in the hand in order that all notion of the Sacred be erased.”
It is modernism the allowed the homosexual/Freemasonic infiltration culminating in Vatican II. In a memo leaked from the Masonic P2 Lodge in Italy: “Get women and laity to give Communion, say that this is the Age of the Laity. Start giving Communion in the hand like the Protestants, instead of on the tongue, say that Christ did it this way. Collect some for Satan Masses.”
"Many are asking: How can this be? How can there possibly be this many homosexual men in the priesthood? How could they have possibly risen to such heights, to the level of archbishops and even cardinals?"
" Almost three years ago, Church Militant conducted an on-camera interview with the notable Alice von Hildebrand, widow of the much-revered Dietrich von Hildebrand. The interview didn't get much attention then, but we think it will now."
"Von Hildebrand shared with us the story of one Bella Dodd, a Communist agent with the American Communist Party from 1927–49. Dodd eventually converted to the Catholic faith under the direction of Abp. Fulton Sheen and became friends with the von Hildebrands."
"Stalin, soon after he came to power, ordered his cronies to invade Catholic seminaries ... with young men that had neither faith nor morals. Now ... the ideal cases: homosexual. Obviously, you don't suppose that someone ... well, it's much more complicated, you know, to have an affair with a woman. But if you're a homosexual, and then it was a tragic mission ... . [Dodd] declared publicly — I repeat, publicly — that in the course of the 20 years of activities for the Communists, she recruited some 1,100 young men."
It's been a downward spiral for the Church from there. The Vatican is now ruled by modernists- the "Lavender Mob" or "Gay Mafia." If any of the priests speak out the cries of "homophobia" erupt. But one good man has come forward, Archbishop Carlo Maria Vigano, recently characterized by antipope Francis as "Satan." Vigano has been a thorn in the side of modernists for years.
While at the Vatican, the Archbishop found many discrepancies in the books of the Vatican bank. After exposing the obvious corruption he was sent to Washington DC as Papal Nuncio (ambassador) to get him out of the way and keep him quiet. While there he found out about the homosexual hijinks of Cardinal McCarrick. He reported this to Pope Benedict XVI who put an order of chastisement on him. When the recent allegations against the Cardinal came out prompting Archbishop Vigano's 11 page testimony, a spokesman for Francis (I can't call him Pope in good conscience) refused comment saying that he had more important issues such as "the environment and immigration." I'm no expert, but I don't believe that these are spiritual issues.
"The Great Accuser, [referring to Vigano] as he himself tells God in the first chapter of the Book of Job, roams around the earth looking for someone to accuse,” Francis said in his morning homily at Mass in the chapel of the Santa Marta residence in the Vatican." He goes on: “It is true, we are all sinners, we bishops,” he said, but the Great Accuser “seeks to unveil sins so that they may be seen, to scandalize the people.”
If Francis was truly interested in his flock (the world's 1 billion Catholics) he would be more interested in protecting them from the likes of McCarrick than protecting the Cardinal and his homosexual ilk form the accusations of the Archbishop. Now Vigano has gone into hiding fearing for his life. It looks like Francis and his Gay Mafia may have put a 187 out on the Archbishop. One thing for certain, the Vatican has issued a warrant for his arrest.
"According to sources within the Vatican, the Secretariat of State of the Holy See — under the direction of Pietro Cardinal Parolin — has communicated an instruction to its internal and external security services to use its “intelligence resources” to locate the physical whereabouts of Abp. Viganò. This request has been communicated not only in order to prevent more unpredictable damage to the image of Pope Francis and the Holy See on the world stage, but also to “prepare the terrain” for the former apostolic nuncio-turned-whistleblower to be prosecuted for alleged multiple crimes against Vatican and Church law."
I urge reading the article by TradCatKnight- it shows how a cloak of secrecy is being implemented to silence Archbishop Vigano to protect Francis and his band of homosexual activists and liberal bishops and priests than to get to the bottom of the trouble... indeed truth is the first casualty of any war. The Church has been taken over by Satanic forces of which Francis is the head. He has the support of the media who also champion the cause of homosexuals, environmental fanatics and the "No Borders" crowd. However, sunlight is the best disinfectant and the more light is shown on Francis, his liberal modernist church and the homosexuals that run it, the better. This is the only way that the Church will return to its spiritual roots and once again truly serve the laity.
