Remnant Newspaper reported on the recent Bendigo pilgrimage.
Catholic Tradition Alive and Well in the Antipodes
Written by Kathy Clubb | Australian Correspondent
It’s refreshing to be able to present an article about something positive happening in the Church, as a change from exposing dissent and heresy. Last weekend, Australia’s largest traditional Catholic event was held in honour of Christ the King. The annual Christus Rex pilgrimage is our answer to the Paris to Chartres pilgrimage and encouragingly, is growing in popularity, especially among young people.
The Christus Rex Pilgrimage (CREX) was established 29 years ago to honour the feast of Christ the King, as promulgated by Pope Pius XI in his encyclical Quas Primas. Pilgrims walk 90 kilometres over three days, finishing at the Bendigo Cathedral on the Feast of Christ the King. The walk is physically demanding, but pilgrims are joyful, offering their pains for the good of Holy Mother Church and their own intentions. This year, in accordance with an appeal from Bishop Schneider, the last leg of the trip was offered as reparation for the sins of idolatry committed in Rome during the Amazon synod.
Today the High Court of Australia announced it would hear Cardinal Pell’s application to appeal his conviction. This was a relief to those convinced of the Cardinal’s innocence and who had found the legal processes so far a total farce, threatening to perpetrate the greatest miscarriage of justice Australia has seen and make Australia’s judicial system seem the dickie thing of a tinpot dictatorship.
Those media members of the Pell lynch mob were off the mark within seconds (I checked). It was the usual thing about the ‘disgraced’ or ‘paedophile’ Cardinal with the repetition of the charges for which Cardinal Pell was convicted, but no mention that the conviction was on the uncorroborated evidence of the faceless complainant while 20 witnesses said the charges were impossible. Nor was it mentioned that legal people around the world at the very least wonder about the integrity of Australia’s legal system.
Or will it correct the greatest miscarriage of justice in Australia’s history?
Victoria’s politically corrupt newspaper reports that the High Court of Australia will announce on Wednesday morning whether Cardinal Pell can appeal his conviction for sexual abuse, a charge made by a consummate liar who will not show his face.
John Henry Western of LifeSite interviews Alexander Tschugguel, 26, of Vienna, Austria, the young man who slipped into the church of Santa Maria in Transpotina, nabbed the Goddess idols, and flicked them into the Tiber.
At least eighty percent of clerical abuse cases are about a priest abusing a boy around fifteen years. It is male on male abuse. But in all the frenzy about Catholic priests in Australia abusing boys, none dare broach the subject of homosexuality. It is now open information gleaned from research and investigation, that the rate of sexual abuse rose in tandem with the entry of homosexuals into the male religious orders, not just priests. The sexual abuse was not the only result of homosexuals’ admission to the priesthood and male religious orders. In America, it is recorded that hundreds of priests died from AIDS. Fr Paul Shaunghnessy wrote about it on Catholic Culture online.
AIDS has quietly caused the deaths of hundreds of Roman Catholic priests in the United States, although other causes may be listed on some of their death certificates, the Kansas City Star reported today. The newspaper said its examination of death certificates and interviews with experts indicates several hundred priests have died of AIDS-related illnesses since the mid-1980s. The death rate of priests from AIDS is at least four times that of the general population, the newspaper said. Kansas City Bishop Raymond Boland says the AIDS deaths show that priests are human.
Astonishing, when you think about it. The paragraph above comes from an Associated Press report on a series of newspaper articles by Judy L. Thomas that appeared in January of 2000. It is too much to say Catholics were “rocked” by the attendant media hype—the scandal threshold has been raised pretty high in recent years—but among the laity the articles occasioned, if not a gasp, at least a general sigh of exasperation. From almost all sides one heard the complaint “Why doesn’t somebody do something?” Why not indeed.
As the Synod of Bishops from the Amazon continues to make headlines, many are curious about the contents of its forthcoming report. According to Pope Francis, the synod’s goal is “to identify new paths for the evangelization of God’s people in that region,” with a particular emphasis on the region’s indigenous people, who are “often forgotten and without the prospect of a serene future.”
Unfortunately, given the working document that’s already been released, as well as the various participants involved, many expect these “new paths” to include the Roman Catholic Church’s ongoing flirtations with liberation theology. As Kishore Jayabalan recently wrote here on the blog, “The tendency to blame capitalism for the ills of the region, the animus against a hierarchical Church, and the hopes for a socialist utopia are alive and well in the synod preparations.”
‘The Catholics of the world are on to you and we stand with these new Maccabees [who threw the Pachamama idols into the Tiber] and we say to you Holy Father at this darkest moment in the history of our Church, we say to you: for God’s sake pack up your pagan goodies and you and your globalist pals get the literal hell out of our Church because we’ve had enough. Our Lady of Para Cieta, Our Lady of Guadeloupe, Our Lady of Fatima, Pray for us.
Viva Cristo Rey!’
I am in full support of Michael Matt and his declaration. There can be no doubt that Bergoglio and his treacherous fellow prelates are in the process of forcing a pantheistic immanentist pagan religion on the Catholic faithful. The Vatican had admitted that Pachamama, the deity at the centre of the pagan ritual in the Vatican gardens, is ‘Mother Earth’.
It is a immanentist ‘Goddess’ religion’ opposed to the transcendent religion of God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Ghost.
By this act of acknowledging the immanentist pantheistic religion, Bergoglio and his prelates have automatically excommunicated themselves. That’s Catholic teaching.
